I love that era of The Police. Infectious rhythms and catchy lyrics. The observation in that track is very true, too: all that extra space just reminds you that someone is missing.
Loads of great tracks from those first two albums. Was watching a doco on The Police last night. Virtuosos, the three of them.
How about some new Hookworms?
Quite a change in direction, the new album is great.
Feeling pretty soppy and sorry for myself this morning whilst I'm catching up with study after being ill for the 3rd time already this year... both are my favourite from Billy Joel.
I grew up listening to Billy Joel and that familiarity led to my lazily misclassifying him as 'Dad music'. Well, if that's the case--and now being the age my dad was then--I've come around to his way of thinking: it's just good music and he's a great storyteller.
Sorry to hear you're under the weather and under the gun with work. Try reconceptualising yourself as the struggling academic in the stage that precedes the great adventure that sweeps you off your feet.
Yeah I grew up thinking the very same.
And thanks that's a very inspiring couple of sentences Yithian
40 years ago. God still saves the queen. I wonder what for.
Nick Kershaw doing his best 'Man In The White Suit' Alec Guinness impression ... not arf pop pickers ..
Another of my favourite hair pansies.
The Church - "Under the Milky Way", a live version for Italian TC complete with bongos. A little fast but still a great song. And memories of my year spent living in Sydney in 1988, when I had the album Starfish... on cassette!! Happy days indeed...
A thrashtastic cover version of Mrs Robinson by The Lemonheads on The Tube in 1991.
Got Kate Bush' - Before The Dawn for Christmas. It's awesome. She's demonstrating her live vocal capabilities.
Unfortunately there's almost nothing from the album on Youtube, except this:
I've heard she liked to touch herself.
Somebody to Love by the Jefferson Airplane live on the Dick Cavett show - genuinely live, not just lip synching, complete with David Crosby on tambourine. I may have posted it here before, but this is great. So there!
