Good thread. Listening to the records I have from 1984 recently, this album, I really loved back then. I listened to it last week and all the love for it came back. This song is still sticking with me.
Heard lots of good things about The War on Drugs so I’m checking them out for the first time. This song has grabbed me. A strange 80s vibe to it. In a good way. And a riff that could’ve been on an early R.E.M. album.
I stream but don’t use the app to see what I listen to most or anything like that. However, I can say without question that my most listened to album of 2022 is Julia Jacklin’s Crushing from 2019. After two years of no new music purchases, I’ve done a bit of catching up. I could name one of several songs from that record but I’m going with this one.
Haha my Dad was in Goldfinger. He was a freelance bass guitarist (1923-1999) and appears at the very beginning of the film where Sean Connery swims underwater in a frogdivers suit into a cavern nightclub and quickly changes into a white DJ. There was a trio band playing in the background (tomtoms, double bass(Dad) and keyboards (sorry Dad it just came back to me that this was pre bass guitar). They’re all wearing yellow short sleeved towelling tops. Anyway the whole place gets blown up immediately but if you freeze frame it, you can see my Dad for 1 second He kept that towelling top as a memento and would wear it looking like a cool dude on holidays
We are doing this in Rockchoir at the moment as a tribute to the late Christine McVie. My goodness what great things can happen when Brits and Americans come together! This was an encore. Just look at Mick Fleetwood’s face, he’s completely carried away with the drumming - he was asked how he did it and he said he didn’t know it just comes- what a gift. He looks just like Rasputin (Rhys Ifans) in The Kingsman film . I love the understatement of Christine and John McVie’s playing and then you have the complete showman that is Lindsey Buckingham. Not forgetting of course that Stevie Nicks was the inspiration for the song. Just wow. I can’t get enough at the moment and have to practise my part by blocking out the original. It’s all syncopated too so quite hard for us old ladies to get a grip on but so worth it!
She has a lovely seductive unusual voice. Strange choice of attire in the video- does she think she’s in a costume drama? She might want to be a bit careful running down the street dressed like that-people might think she’s a bit doolally
