...aaaand this one. I hate the fact that the lyrics to this song are still relevant. But you just need to turn the TV on... :worried:

 

SueC

Yeah, over 50 years after MLK, same old same old.  :worried:

This song is not about this exact situation, but about the same sort of thing:


PS:  Great title (& lyrics) on that last Bowie track!

Ulrich

New Waterboys (just got the latest album one year ago, which still seems "new" to me; they're almost too fast these days):

If only I'd thought of the right words...

L'Eglise est une telle merveille qu'elle vit et vivrait malgré
l'indignité de ses membres et qu'il faudrait la conserver

I've always loved this guitar part.

...sometimes it's surprising how much crap you can find in yourself when you go digging!  :1f635:

It was a bit of a thing to ping "like" here for me.  I really liked this song when I was 13.  And would subsequently, from the age of 14 after discovering alternative music, have rather eaten live wriggly worms than admit this was ever the case.

This was the one time in my life that my mother actually listened to music with me.  She liked this song too. The singer does have a decent voice, much more so than a lot of his contemporaries did, and good on him for showing people you don't have to be binary.  It's just that I outgrew this style of music and discovered things I liked better.  But, I think the reticence to ever admit I liked this song was tied up in this idea of having developed "better taste" and that's something I interrogate now.

Anyone else here got anything weird like that going down?

This is quite a good song.
But I hadn't realised the bits of dub in it until now, which makes it even better.

That would definitely be one. It was all the time on the radio when I was a kid.
But I have always liked that song, and in fact I think it must be about the very best he's ever done (disclaimer - I haven't really followed Boy George after Karma Chameleon, and that was a minute or two ago...).

But in my case it was more like, er...




This is actually a very fine song (back then I didn't know it was a cover), Jimmy has an outstanding voice, just that in hindsight, the production doesn't do it for me, I prefer more synthy things.
Bronski Breat itself, for instance, or Erasure.
Or... the Pet Shop Boys, which one day appeared and did put an end to the contest (amazing band, the PSB). With the Pet Shop Boys, things became more "serious" while staying very poppy at the same time.
Also Depeche Mode, but by then I was not as aware of them, excepting Just Can't Get Enough, of course, which was everywhere as well.
But I was always humming Don't Leave Me This Way it as a kid, hahahaa.

It's been many years since I didn't listen to him.
Still brilliant, of course.

But his music seems to be a bit forgotten...
Besides, on youtube you find more Hendrix covers than his actual songs. Urgh.

The beginning of this song reminds me a bit of Just Say Yes.
