I'm one tired individual right now...
OK, very tired, still off work and about to head to bed.
Figured I'd post a few tracks, the sole theme here being -'songs everyone should hear.' The only link with the photo is that the Leaning Tower Of Pisa is somewhere i finally went last month, and I think everyone should go there.
So, first up...a small hit but one of the Pet Shop Boys' best ever songs:
Pet Shop Boys -'Being Boring.' mp3
From their late eighties phase rather than their late seventies phase, but still sublime...
Wire -'Kidney Bingos.' mp3
From the best selling Jazz album ever, if I can't persuade some of you that Jazz can be great, I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree...
Miles Davis -'So What.' mp3
It starts off with feedback, it has a mental sax bit, it came outta the late seventies...Pere Ubu and a love song (of sorts)
Pere Ubu -'Non-alighnment Pact.' mp3
If this doesn't bring a smile to your face, nothing will. (Though I wonder if They Might Be Giants are responsible for the very annoying band that are Barenaked Ladies.)
They Might Be Giants -'Birdhouse In Your Soul.' mp3
As ever, if you like the songs, support the artists involved.
And BTW, this is my 299th post. Will try and do something special for my 300th.
