Sometimes, it takes the object of your affection/obsession doing something extreme to make the point hit home.
And by something extreme, I mean something like…oh, I don’t know…marrying someone else.
The Jam – The Bitterest Pill (I Ever Had to Swallow)
Arguably one of the greatest songs ever, that.
Just to clarify, when I called that post from yesterday “Shit Elvis”, I most definitely was not referring to this chap, Ely’s (Cardiff division) finest:
Shakin’ Stevens – You Drive Me Crazy
Thank you for your time.
Following on from yesterday’s birthday shenanigans, some more of The Jesus & Mary Chain, in a quieter mood than they can normally be found:
The Jesus & Mary Chain – Taste of Cindy (Acoustic)
More soon. Maybe later today, we’ll see what sort of a state I’m in after the cricket.
I’m off to the cricket today, so you’ll forgive me if today’s posts are little brief.
Here’s a little something lifted from a four CD compilation called “American Epic” I picked up recently; a song you’ll recognise, although possibly not this version.
Cannon’s Jug Stompers – Walk Right In
I’m not really a fan of doing posts to mark the anniversary of a record coming out, mostly because they make me feel very old. I find myself looking at the years mentioned and thinking how it only feels like yesterday I first heard that record, so it can’t possibly that long since it came out.
That rationale applies here, but I can’t ignore it. Luckily, I’m late with the anniversary post, so I can get away with it.
But, it really is 25 years since Buffalo Tom’s “Let Me Come Over” album came out, which contained this absolute classic:
Buffalo Tom – Taillights Fade
