As I promised back in errr… January …. ahem…. I thought I’d put some more musically themed blogs around here sometime.
Tonight I was originally going to play some more Forza but felt I was too tired to do any good so just relaxed instead. And then I remembered my January post so thought I’d pick up my copy of 1,001 Songs To Hear Before You Die and leaf through from back to front (new to old).
And hope not to find the Birdie Song mentioned….
Starts off well enough Gorillaz “Stylo”. When this was released I remember being blown away by it. I saw it done live-ish on Later With Jools and it sounded outstanding but somehow never became as cool as their early stuff. Quite inexplicable to me.
Couple of world music bits or other things I can’t be bothered writing about next plus Lily Allen “The Fear” (top 1,000 songs ever? Really?!) and Florence & The Machine “Dog Days Are Over” (hmmm I guess)
Then Coldplay “Viva La Vida”. To me this originally was quite difficult to listen to so how it ever got to number one still puzzles me. Not that it’s not a great tune. Just not even Coldplay’s best work ever. Yet their only ever number 1 in either the US or UK. Quite bizarre.
iPod about to die so that’ll do for now. Night!!
