I could listen to Samuel Barber's Adagio For Strings on a long drive.

Haunting, beautiful ... lost in my thoughts.

Yeah , thanks Mothra, both of those were well worth watching. I always loved Mad World, but I've been hell bent on EWTRTW
I know. They are like bookends.. One talks about what's happening, and the other talks about the results.

Sigh .. hadn't heard Mad World, for quite a while, and I do like very much that cover.

Always seemed so sad.

Oh yeah.. then we have SHOUT. by Tears for Fears. I think that sits in the middle of ewtrtw and Mad World.


Sigh.

They were on tour here a couple of yrs ago(?) with 10 CC. I so wish I could have seen them. What a show would have been.

10 CC is another absolutely mag british music duo.. from back then.
They wrote the BEST SONGS.

I'm Not In Love .. ring a bell.?

Oh well , most music today bores me so much I haven't even turned on the radio for yrs, except in long power outages. :roll

I guess i'm getting older.. :bgrin

The last music CD I bought,..?? ( yeah that's what I mean) .. was umm probably hmm sheesh .. maybe Pnau? When they won the Aria.?

Hey Mothra.. do you remember the old days... ?

Not the 60s so much, as the 70's.?

Does the name Chain, or Matt Taylor mean anything to you.?

I can STILL remember some of the music...

I actually bought them , on VINYL.

One of the songs went..

" I remember when I was young and the earth went round the Sun and we were happy." Umm near enough.. long time ago now.

.. they had some great songs....kind of bluesy/folksy/rock.!! Harmonicas and all.

Black and Blue ..comes to mind, but I just cannot remember the song ..it was the 'single', from the LP. :bgrin

:buddy

oh yeah...

because i'm awake I get to see late stuff.. and have you heard

Mabel.?

She has a couple of songs , live on The Loop.. Ch 10. It repeats.

I think she is fantastic.

She sits on a stool, which doesn't look very comfortable, dressed in RED, with a guitarist as backing.
Unassuming.. but she delivers. !

Don't Call Me Up ( I'm over you)

Mad Love.

Go Mabel. :thumb

I've not heard of Mabel but had a quick look ... not really doing anything for me but i can't hear her acoustic as you have.

Maybe you'll like this? Billie Eilish. Doing some really interesting things, albeit through mumble rap.

Thank you Mothra. I haven't heard any of that for so long. It reminds of my youth :bgrin
Well thanks for finding it.


Have got to the age where it is easier to remember 50 yrs ago, rather than what happened yesterday. :bgrin

I was probably one of the kids in the crowd. Fun times, it was, in the early seventies.

The days of yore, when a single track could go to 10 mins + , with massive Guitar and Drum solos.
Impossible to imagine today. :purple :bgrin

Question for you..? Did you enjoy Black and Blue..? and as the child I was it seemed very sophisticated at the time.

I thought it was a great song, and hearing it now, I still do. A bit ...?
Remember that was back in the 70's.
