Kinda "topical" these days, as I keep hoping that "maybe someday" some things will be better...

Yep, I realised this many years ago. Additionally, in 1999, I made that train journey for the first time.  :cool

This song rings a bell. It reminds me of a pathetic scene, and a particularly dark time in my life.
That said, it's one of the songs I like best off Wild Mood Swings. Oh well. :D

Covering The Doors (30 years ago for a compilation album celebrating an anniversary of US record company Elektra):

One "freak show" of a video and I think it is quite fun to watch! 30 years ago (Sept 1990) it was released as a single.
(That must be Fiction Records boss Chris "Bill" Parry at the start doing a guest spot?!)

Always topical.

And applicable in all sorts of details.

This evening, this one's for Rafael Nadal, who played exceptional tennis and bagelled the increasingly odious Novak Djokovic in the first set en route to winning in straight sets.  Well done.   :smth023

In fact, yesterday I listened to the whole audio of that entire gig, up loud - a nice way of sidelining the American circus - you can't listen to radio or turn on the TV here at the moment...

PERSONAL SANITY PLAYLIST FOR THIS WEEK

This week, I'm listening to a lot of Cure and Australian Indigenous music.  Here's some of the Cure songs that are helping me stay sane.

First and foremost, a perfect song for all this:


Another obvious one for the situation dominating public life in the West just now:


One whose mood captures the dislocation, nausea and darkness of that situation - with a fan video that adds to the imagery:


Apologies for the sound on that one, it seems a bit clipped.  Here's my favourite version of it so far - showing what happens if you just keep on getting better and better at this:


Another song that simply fits the mood:


And of course:





And just because:



And because it's at the heart of all this:



And because we can take refuge in the microcosms we create for ourselves and those we love:







...that's a nice cross-section of relevant songs.

Stay sane, everyone. ♥
