Musicchick - you are really educating me with some of the great songs you post on here - (I have to confess that most of them I have never heard of)
Get well soon x
Aw, thanks, smackerjack, you are too kind.

I just found this, don't get scared by the video, it's a bit odd, but I love it, makes me miss my teaching.

Re: Song of the day

Lol

As a total coincidence, they were on the same billing as Mark Kelly last week (I posted one of his vids the other day).

Did you get the "Tafta" clin d'oeil?

Vive le Gotteron!

Nice chilled stuff for a Friday afternoon.

I'm guessing you must like Sigur Ros too?

They are ok, his solo stuff ain't bad either. It's a bit too fairy pour moi..I went to Manc quite a bit, actually, from Poulton, when all the Brit guitar stuff was raging..lovely market with vinyls, etc. Awesome accent, warm folks.

ok, some more aquatic stuffs..the prawno made me chuckle, I am still laughing.

A total sell out, but nicely chippin' in the world of hot redheads..

Three songs that get you going………

Hi,

My girlfriend and I went out for dinner last night with five Swiss friends, after dinner we invaded the hotel cellar bar which was actually closed but they opened it because we had eaten in the hotel restaurant. The video jukebox was still on so………yes you've guessed already...........have alcohol………will get sloppy.

We lost my father last year and I couldn't quite understand when other people said they couldn't listen to certain songs because it brought so many memories (good or bad) flooding back.

At the time I thought exactly the same, but now I feel the opposite.

I think (and this is only my personal opinion), to associate someone's memory with a living, moving picture has helped me to deal with it.

Here are my three:

Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugxFcmZXDyc

Il Divo - Somewhere

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wSvUnDkGjw

Sarah Brightman & Andrea Bocelli - Time To Say Goodbye

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_JLkIOnq04

Re: Three songs that get you going………

This song belongs to my lovely friend, who was in a horrific car accident. She survived, her unborn baby (32 weeks) was killed....I held that baby in my hands and helped his mother bury him...life can never be the same...

Re: Three songs that get you going………

Assuming we're talking about emotionally difficult songs:
Because quite a few people I knew slipped through helping hands...

Because it reminds me of one of the most difficult times of my life...

...and for another of those episodes.

Re: Three songs that get you going………

Several occasions made me a frequent visitor to facilities where it's handy to know how to open a door with the elbow. Not the bathroom.. Mainly due to the risky lifestyle of family members and their passion for extremsport. Radio song, but the lyrics are to the point.

(oh, ok. no need to post) Kittster already posted the Fray song.


epic fails
Cat Power - The greatest


The late 80's/early 90's: in the car with my parents. Endless discussions... Cassette player. Childhood.
Dissolving the cord seat upholstry with my hands - devaluating the resale value of a BMW significantly and giving a sh** about it.
Kate Bush - Wuthering Heights


and falling in love
Anna Ternheim - What have I done

Re: Song of the day

Have you heard the great news? Pulp have reformed (well since a few months now):



Naturally Pulp are mostly known for one song. But as Jarvis rightly put it at Reading when he introduced the song: "If Pulp are only ever remembered for this song...I don’t care...It’s a good song...You know... Black Lace are only remembered for Agadoo...So it could be a lot worse”

Here are two less well known songs from Pulp that are IMO quite good (and are trademark Pulp: light disco music with dark lyrics)

Pulp - Death comes to town



Pulp - Seconds
