There'll be sad songs... make you cry, as Billy Ocean once sang (not long after pointing that that 'When the going gets tough, the tough get going, if memory serves).

It's sunday night, and as always, seem to have those sunday blues.

Oh well, sad songs say so much (uh, cheers Elton).

Anyway, here's a few beautifully sad songs. See what you think.

Have a good week.


This Mortal Coil -'Song To the Siren (Tim Buckley cover).' mp3

Peter Murphy -'A Strange Kind Of Love.' mp3

New Age Steppers -'Fade Away.' mp3

Bang Bang Machine -'Geek Love.' mp3

A big pat on the back for posting "geek love", love that track. I had the 12" but lent it to a "mate" who never returned it.

ps the Joy Zipper link doesn't appear to work?

Nice, Eduardo, very very nice. Glad you continued the Bang Bang Machine line, as I featured it last month: a really hypnotic masterwork.

Steve R -glad you like it, and have fixed the Joy Zipper cover.

SiG - hypnotic indeed, whatever happened etc..? (well, I know two of them are now married and have a child together,)Don't really know much about the rest of their stuff, and only own that 12", but as John Peel himself said, if it's all they ever do, they'll have achieved more than most of us ever do.
