Have been obsessed with this song, and some others from Pieces of a Man for a while. It's so damn good.

Pieces of a Man is a terribly underrated record. Lady Day and John Coltrane is one of my favourite songs of all time. And I love GSH's spoken word. He was the original rapperstuart-sutcliffe

This one's better though:

Next: Cabaret -- New Broadway Cast of Cabaret (1995)

 

*Edit: I was looking at some of the lyrics for a track from Chicago on Apple Music and they must've gotten their Kander & Ebb musicals mixed up because Apple Music had the lyrics for "Willkommen" put for the track instead of the actual lyrics paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

"....When I cannot sing my heart, I can only speak my mind...."

Inspired by yesterday's remarks, I'm playing the Runaways on shuffle. Never heard their live-in-Japan LP before, it rocks! ("Cherry Bomb" a #1 single there a-hard-days-night-ringo-6)

Probably the most unique cover I've heard in a while.a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

Very odd, though quite intriguing!

I mean, I always liked them, especially "Cherry Bomb", "Queens of Noise" and whatnot, but maybe I have more of a taste for unpretentious, sincere, seriously hard-rocking bubblegummy stuff these days. 

Right now, it's some old-school "horror rap" that Jules or Quarryman might enjoy. ("Defective Trip" in partic)

I posted this to my friends' discord saying "This exists and I'm not mad about it" and one friend said "It works" and I replied, "Indeed, oddly enough" and my wizard-friend responded with "Well, tis rather difficult for a work of both such compositional fortitude and cultural ensconsement as Yellow Submarine not to work" and I gotta say I concur fully a-hard-days-night-george-4

Sonic Youth in the late 80s/early 90s is easily as good as any band has been before or since, IMO. This track is heavenly.

David Gilmour - David Gilmour

Quite a nice little excursion, lots of tonally Floydesque fingerprints from the period but much more relaxed structurally à la Obscured By Clouds (apparently one of David's few listened-to Floyd records, I read somewhere that he was known to direct it into the garden of a summer's day) .
