CLT’s resident sexpert is having a day today. Take it away, Robert Palmer.
Life is a thousand winding paths in a dark forest of possibilities. We never know where we’re truly headed. We may have a route in mind, only to find out that the road ends. But for every dead end we ram into, two more paths open up.
Bulbous Salutations, everyone. McGibblets soothed your broken heart with our last music post, but it’s a new day, so let’s start the week with some chair dancing. What are you listening to and enjoying today? I’m going to go with Yes’ “Owner Of A Lonely Heart” because, while I couldn’t think of any musicians who had…
This one’s for the heartbreakers. We all have one or two or a dozen. Those artists that discover you as much as you discover them. They’re perfect. Until suddenly they’re not. They’ve changed in a way that you can’t accept or forgive.
This one seems just about right. (Mostly I wanted an excuse to listen to/post this song.) You got any good candidates?
Oh why not. They just have to say “Ma” or “Mother” or “Mama” or something. Doesn’t even have to be in the title.
McStabby wants a music post, and when someone called McStabby tells you to do something, you do it. I'm thinking 80s or 80s-inspired might soothe her bloodlust, but who knows? Post what your heart tells you to. I'm going with Flock of Seagulls "I Ran". The film clip to this song is everything.
Post your favourite songs that have some kind of narrative to them; where you want to find out what happens. I realise how odd a choice this is, but I'm going with Machine Gun Fellatio's "Unsent Letter" because I think it's pretty good at chronicling what may have gone wrong and the writer's slow realisation that it…
Today's theme suggested by MadamePeaceLove. Post whatever iconic women rockers you can think of. I know the previous "Best" posts have encouraged competition, but I don't want a bored Jez staffer writing an expose on us for perpetuating women competing against each other, so if you're posting a song, you have to…
Let's talk all things Beatles, subsequent solo work (even Ringo), and covers. I'm going with "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (acoustic) because even though the opening verse mentions cleaning, I've always liked this song.
Today's theme suggested by ClassicGT, who seems to possess a preternatural ability in facilitating people to embarrass themselves. Boot up whatever music device you use, press shuffle, and then post the first two songs that play.
Suggested/hijacked by BP and FKAPAUC, let's brighten your Friday and post all things The Kinks. Songs by the Davies, and covers of their work. I'm starting off with "All Day And All of the Night". I know it's a gimme, but it's great.
Today's theme suggested by the delightful YouGuise. Let's get it on, ClashTalk—post your disco (including nu-disco) faves. I'm going with Heaven 17's "Temptation" because it is objectively the best and nothing will convince me otherwise.
Post a song and the lyrics (or a sample thereof) that you think are most beautiful. Then we will fight to the death for the winner
There's no concrete reason why I love this song. I just do. Enjoy (especially the no nonsense picture of her.)
Lanie Lane, a total oddball who embraced country and 40s/50s aesthetic with relative success, has just announced she's quitting music because her heart isn't in it anymore. Who are you missing from the music business? Post songs from the distant, gone, or long-forgotten.
Some post rock for your mid-morning! This came on Pandora just now and I figured y'all might enjoy it, too. Song is "Loft" by Caspian off their album "You Are the Conductor."
Do you like theme music (movies/TV)? I do. Let's trade songs. If you don't comment here often, introduce yourself. As an added incentive for anyone feeling a bit hesitant about commenting, I promise to reply to everyone. Promise! I'll probably run out of interesting things to say early on so you'll be treated to…
I love everything about this song and their 1998 album Quiver.
