Bought that a few years back.

I read that Sting said to someone - possibly David Foster, something along the lines of "Have you heard what she does to my song? Listen to her, it will change your life"

Needless to say that Sting was a huge admirer.

Track of the day, never knew, but a little snippet from the Depeche Mode at the BBC documentary leads to this...



bit wobbly in his vocals but still interesting!
From wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_ ... mes_Around

American IV: The Man Comes Around is the 87th studio album by American music artist Johnny Cash. Released in 2002, it is the fourth in Cash's "American" series of albums. The majority of songs are covers which Cash performs in his own sparse style, with help from producer Rick Rubin. For instance, for the song "Personal Jesus", Rubin asked then-Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante to re-work an acoustic version of Martin Gore's song, which featured a simple acoustic riff that stripped down the song to a blues style. He receives backing vocal assistance from various artists, including Fiona Apple, Nick Cave, and Don Henley.

One of the tracks off the new album:


Not bad for a 16-year old (she was 17 last Sunday)


And a Black Day.



I see she is on at The Sage in November, may just risk going for that one.

Random link....saw something in the car park, thought that's a bit of a brutish looking French thing and led me to this



Not a bad song, if you can detach it from the car adverts!

..and letting the next vid just roll on got "London Grammar" also on Jools Holland. Never heard of them but may give them an airing.
from wiki
Musical style
London Grammar's music has been described as "a blend of ambient, ethereal and classical sounds" with melancholy guitar, soaring vocals, and plaintive lyrics. Hannah Reid's powerful, brooding vocals, prominent on all of London Grammar's tracks released to date, are often compared to those of Judie Tzuke and Florence Welch.
The vocals are very strong, live performances too

London Grammar are excellent, FAK are stellar - except they have done some Leonard Cohen covers that fall rather flat, very unlike them.

P.E.-Jukebox-Election Selections

Post by NewcastleFalcon » 19 Apr 2017, 20:16

Ever the opportunist, the Pickled Egg Landlord has come to the conclusion that not all of punters or potential punters will be lapping up wall to wall election coverage over the coming weeks.

Music can be a welcome relief, so the "Election selection" has been opened on the Pickled Egg Wurlitzer.

No holds barred, no 6 minute restrictions, just as usual interesting/random selections of good stuff you have come across. :-D

"Election Selection" is just an Alan Freemanesque cliche there is no requirement tp fill the juke box either with tracks which have the word "Election" or some connection with some politician's name although I am sure that there will be hundreds of selections with the word "May" in them.

Regards Neil

...and as if to demonstrate that the only rules to apply are no rules, I will start off with a very sincere Andy Williams

There's got to be Fleetwood Mac's Little Lies in there somewhere along with Thin Lizzy's Don't Believe A Word :rofl2: :-D
Edit: and another one.... How Can You Expect To Be Taken Seriously - Pet Shop Boys :lol:

PE.Jukebox:Election Selection!

Post by NewcastleFalcon » 19 Apr 2017, 21:12

Yes nicely done there Bobins :-D

One of the finest performances of "Dont Believe a Word" has to be this one from the Old Grey Whistle Test nicely slowed down, bluesey and emotional then just goes wow! I think Anne Nightingale at the end didn't quite know what had just hit her! Awesome.

Yes like "won't get fooled again" class, as well as being a good "election selection"!

Tonight I have discovered "Francis Lai" and his music...in particular his score for the movie "Un Homme et Une Femme".

Plenty more to explore from him and a great "French feel" try this jazz version of "L'Amour Est Bien Plus Fort Que Nous"



Regards Neil

If you prefer the words Nicole Croisille et Pierre Barouh supply the vocals on this version

"I saw a newspaper picture from the political campaign
A woman was kissing a child, who was obviously in pain
She spills with compassion, as that young child's
Face in her hands she grips
Can you imagine all that greed and avarice
Coming down on that child's lips"
