I bought "Live At The BBC" as a birthday gift to myself and have been listening to it non-stop at home and in the car. heart

As an aside, every time I hear "Some Other Guy," I can't help but think of The Rutles "Goose Step Mama" and smile.

That's interesting – is that the only Beatles song that reminds you of its Rutles doppelganger?

(Listening to Jimi Hendrix's "new album" People, Hell & Angels for the first time!)

Checking out this Dutch artist called Jacco Gardner. He makes kind of psychedelic baroque pop. I really enjoy it!

A 3CD bootleg set by The Kinks called "The Songs We Sang for Auntie"…it's more BBC sessions that were left off the official released set. Right now, the song Celluloid Heroes, which is one of my all-time favorites.

Sorry, just saw this. No, no – it just prompts the most vivid visual: the boys bouncing around at the Cavern. And the idea of dedicating a song to a woman who goose steps makes me giggle.

I found "Electric Arguments" on sale last night, halfway through it. I'm feeling only one song so far, but I'll give it a few listens.

I'm listening to a few things at the moment.

Looking a lot at my poetry at the minute, I dug out a couple of songs that gave me titles to work with (see the poetry thread), wondering whether the songs were as good as I remembered. Neither disappointed.

The first was a song called The Wound That Never Heals by Jim White. There's a great video for it on YouTube but I couldn't get it to play past twenty-five without downloading it, so this is just an audio of it. It's a very Nick Cave song, done from the American South. I'm in love again!

The second was an Ed Harcourt song called Whistle of a Distant Train. This is also an audio but such a beautiful, mournful song. If I didn't know he's a Londoner…

And I've been drawn back to an old friend of mine for some reason called Moira Lambert, who in the late '80s/early '90s fronted one of those bands who should have made it but didn't. My favourite song of theirs, that they released, was a Nick Drake cover.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v…..17LkRKVXJg

Her biggest hit was fronting Saint Etienne for their cover of Neil Young's Only Love Can Break Your Heart. Top 40 in the UK, No 1 Billboard Dance Chart. So far as I remember, back when FOR were starting to gain interest, and Saint Etienne were just getting started, she was asked to choose between the two. She chose her band, hence the "singer" in this video is an actress miming to her vocals. But what vocals! Still one of my favourite British female vocalists of the past 25 years.

Last I heard of was living in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and doing TV soundtracks for things like "Survival of the Fittest: Tales from the West Coast Trail".

Specifically at this moment it's "Big Barn Bed" by Wings.  Lots of Wings and RAM today, in honour of Linda.  heartheartheart

George's Deep Blue followed by John's Bless You (the outtake from Anthology). Two beautiful stunning ballads.

I'm weak for most live versions of this song, and I'm not exactly sure why yet.

Please don't wake me, no don't shake me, leave me where I am, I'm only sleeping~.
