I’m listening to a great doc here on Chris Rea while sitting in the car park of Ikea.

The Kingsmen - Louie Louie

Deacon Blue- Chocolate Girl,
Beautifully poignant.

He calls her the chocolate girl
Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
She knows she’s the chocolate girl
Cause she’s broken up and swallowed
And wrapped in bits of silver

been posted before but I don’t care

Great tune mate.


#7651

A belter. Wish I could play the piano like that.

Better than the studio version in my view.

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea - Neutral Milk Hotel


#7654

Monster tune and video alert. I was on a November 1993/Icelandic vibe at about 6pm the evening just gone and listened to this three times in a row while on the toilet. And I’m listening to it as I type. Beautiful.

Bjork - Big Time Sensuality

@Julio_Geordio has sent me into a Divine Comedy buzz, what a throwback


#7656

This a tune and a half


#7657

“My lovely horse” was a belter too.


#7658

Pale, pubescent beasts roam through the streets and coffee-shops
Their prey gather in herds in stiff knee-length skirts and white ankle-socks
But while they search for a mate my type hibernate in bedrooms above
Composing their songs of love


#7659

Great lyrics.

That nicely encapsulates the teenage years of a few on here alright, although maybe not composing songs of love, more so masturbating furiously.

Beautiful. The whole thing could be a poem

Pale, pubescent beasts roam through the streets
And coffee-shops
Their prey gather in herds in stiff knee-length skirts and white ankle-socks
But while they search for a mate my type hibernate
In bedrooms above
Composing their songs of love

Young, uniform minds in uniform lines
And uniform ties
Run round with trousers on fire and signs of desire they cannot disguise
While I try to find words as light as the birds
That circle above
To put in my songs of love

Fate doesn’t hang on a wrong or right choice
Fortune depends on the tone of your voice
So sing while you have time
Let the song shine down from above
And fill you with songs of love

Promenade is Hannon’s best album in my view.

It is absolutely brilliant.
