From the same album as Over the Rainbow (Songbird)

Something very special from one of the greatest talents of our generation.

Ok, I'm doing the "youtube" thing tonight.

So here is a great song from, I think the 80's.

But I can't post without what others might view as a strange music link.

How about some 60's mainstream pop song about us anarchists

Or a more recent, and somewhat more cheerful version.

Apart from the Beatles where I virtually know every word sung plus the usual favourites, I rarely listen to the words sung, more the tune, or rather pick up individual lyrics along the way if I truly enjoy it. Bad habit of mine and wonder how many of us do the same, but have noticed that over the years I have started to listen far more carefully and then the other night I heard this, without having the benefit of seeing the video below.

The words coming from the radio were/are beautiful. I had heard the opening "Starry, Starry Night", hundreds of times, lovely tune and all that, but decided to actually listen to every word for once. Wasn't quite sure what he was talking about until it all clicked. Vincent! Perhaps I'm the only ignoramus who only just for the first time ever, truly appreciated what this song is all about as never listened to anything meaningful past Starry Night. Was told at school, has high potential, just needs to pay more attention to achieve it!! Dear me. Taken a long time.

This may bring back memories for some. The whole album here but "White Bird" is the first track.

Takes me back...

Blimey, haven’t heard this since the Round House days, sitting cross legged smoking something amidst the fumes of incense everywhere and watching very strange people plus weird bubbles appear on the screen. On reflection, it was a tough time personally for me but some of the best music ever. Flower Power and trousers that were cool at the time but look ridiculous now.
Yes, memories…

Silly question here.

I love music that already exists. The problem is that to some extent new music stopped in the 90's.

Of course it didn't at all. It's just the likes of "Top of the pops" was dropped from TV and I stopped listening to R1 as the DJ's became too much to put up with.

So how do I refresh my music tastes?

Please understand that this is not a comment upon what went before, which I love. I just want some new stuff as well.

Try the Spotify "song radio" from something you like and follow it
- great way of finding things you've forgot or never heard of

Knew nothing about this group, Lucius, just stumbled across them a couple of days ago and really enjoyed this performance

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLKNGNC1w3M
Lucius - Dusty Trails - 1/27/2016 - Paste Studios, New York, NY

There's several versions of it and I like them all.

An article in the Guardian today about Jake Thackray, who I can just about remember from my childhood, encouraged me to listen to some of his songs. Talented and rather unappreciated.
