Stealing the idea behind a long running thread on the GDP. What have you been listening to lately?

I hadn't listened to Mary Lou Lord's 1998 album Got No Shadow in a long time. Great acoustic inspired, jangly pop.


The song is called His Latest Flame. I wonder if the person who posted the video was making an editorial comment.

I never grow tired of Killing Joke. They excite me as much today as they did when as a schoolboy i first heard their sessions on John Peel in the late 70s. I used to listen to Peel every night with my headphones on under the bedcovers because bedtime was 9.30 on a school night.

I spent the day with my es295 listening to Killing Joke and Elvis!

I admit since it's Saturday and I didn't drive anywhere (radio), I have not listened to anything except the tunes in my head. Just kinda been too lazy to stream or play something from my own collection.

BTW, the song currently stuck in my head is Whitney Houston "I Wanna Dance With Somebody".
I'd post a link to the song/video but I ain't that cruel.

Don't ya wanna dance, say ya wanna dance, don't ya wanna dance....

My wife hates me when I do stuff like that.

Some singer/songwriter things--
John Hiatt---"Cry Love"
"City of New Orleans"---Arlo Guthrie's take on Steve Goodman's tune (Willie Nelson does a great version as well)
"Canadian Railroad Trilogy"---Gordon Lightfoot
"Country Roads"---John Denver

To me, these are as close to "perfect" songs as is humanly possible to attain. They need nothing added, nothing taken away, they tell a story, and present a beautiful mental image. Aside from the complexity of Lightfoot's tune, they're all easy enough for anyone to sing along.
