Time Can Be Overcome

This evening, I’m sharing a song from one of my favourite compilations, Arts & Crafts: X. I previously shared “Lonely Is as Lonely Does” from that album in a post from March 2020. And as I mentioned there, the record label made this collection in 2013 as part of its tenth-anniversary celebration. (I also ownContinue reading “Time Can Be Overcome”

Worlds Away

Many have said that after the 1950s, 60s and 70s, the 1980s were a wasteland for music. I beg to differ. The emergence of post-punk, new wave, new romantic, synthpop and other genres, combined with other major genres like folk, progressive rock, heavy metal, arena rock and others, led to many different sounds for modernContinue reading “Worlds Away”

Round and Round

Happy Friday! It feels like the weather has suddenly changed. When I set off on my bike this morning, it was just 7°C (44°F). It stayed on the cold side through the ride, so I was wearing some extra clothing to keep warm. It felt good to be moving after a few days off theContinue reading “Round and Round”

Stars

After a bike ride in the heat today, I was grateful to be lounging in the shade of our summer porch and listening to some oldies this afternoon. At some point, I got onto Simply Red. Someone among our family and friends was talking about them in the past week… I can’t remember whom orContinue reading “Stars”

Think That You Might Be Wrong

Today’s is another song for which I don’t recall the story of why I have it. It’s the only song I have by the Great Lake Swimmers, and I bought it in the iTunes Store on April 29, 2012; just over eight years ago. Don’t know anything about the band either, though I did lookContinue reading “Think That You Might Be Wrong”

Peace and Quiet

Just as with the Arts & Crafts compilation album, X (please see my post on March 3, 2020, for the fantastic track from it, “Lonely Is as Lonely Does”), which I bought in the 2013 festive season, I picked up Ron Hawkins and the Do Good Assassins’ album, Garden Songs while on Christmas holidays inContinue reading “Peace and Quiet”

Jubilee Street

(Warning: video contains a cuss word.) It’s been less than two years since I got onto Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds; whoa, what was I missing! I have some of his music but have to admit I don’t like all of it. I’m not partial to his murder ballads, but there are songs IContinue reading “Jubilee Street”

Don’t Delete the Kisses

Whenever sweety and I have gone to the United Kingdom, part of my routine has been to scout out plays, musicals and concerts in London. We’ve been lucky to see some pretty terrific performances over the years. On our last trip there three years ago, I noticed that the North London foursome Wolf Alice wasContinue reading “Don’t Delete the Kisses”
