My old flatmate was a Floyd fan, and he referred to the Scissor Sisters version as 'sacrilege'.

I think they're both good in different ways...

A terrific version of a terrific song...
I've Got You Under My Skin - Frank Sinatra.

The output of Sinatra at Capitol in the early 1950s with arrangers like Gordon Jennings and Nelson Riddle is second to none and I rate those Capitol albums very highly indeed. A fantastic voice with such perfect phrasing and control with sublime, sympathetic orchestral arrangements.

And what if they say "aren't you going to answer the question properly?" What if the only music they can stomach is Stockhausen played backwards? Do you hit them in the eyeballs? Are you that kind of man?

Sir, I would blank them - and the tsunami of accumulated disrespect that followed would leave them, frankly, finished in polite society.

Or I'd shout 'You wee the bed!' and give it legs.

Depends on the situation...

I rented out Songs for Swinging Lovers only yesterday. It's good (though my flatmates think it's wee). Sometimes, though, I wish it was less full of sound. He could have done one song shouting above screeching feedback and it would have been complete.

Top track, sir (particularly the Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve remix) and one that had been an intended future entry from me - so much kudos/commiseration*!

Hoorah! It is lovely isn't it, really relaxing. Unlike this one:

Of Montreal - The Past is a Grotesque Animal

This isn't a YouTube link as the versions on there are an acoustic one, and the other loses the last two minutes. This is an eleven minute s***storm of a song, angry, confused, frustrated but with slither of hope running through it and coming out towards the end. It's the heart (or, more accurately in a way, the gut) of the album, and it's the song I intend to one day have my nervous breakdown to. Smile

I hope you're looking forward to it! Very Happy

Oh, NOW we're talking. Max Romeo ruled. Madness did a rather fine cover of "Chase the Devil" on the Dangermen Sessions album.

Johnstone, are those the same scary women you find in Spirit in the Sky by Doctor and the Medics?

Yup. They're the Anadin Brothers. Very Happy

Today's choice from the Carey household features the coolest Frenchman to have ever lived, and his ode to Bridgit Bardot (before she went all fascist on us)


Serge Gainsbourg- L'Initiales B.B.

Just listen to that lush orchestration, and admire the way he holds his cigarette throughout the song.

As further proof that my musical tastes aren't entirely restricted to stuff that was made outside of my own lifetime:

The Eels - Susan's House

Back to the 60s, and time to introduce a bit of Zappa to this thread, which has been sorely lacking until now:

I was thinking about an XTC track for tommorow, but will save it for future.

Dear God is Partridge at his angry, satirical, cutting best. No prisoners taken, he means what he says. Techincally, it also happens to be a very well constructed song as well. Smile

Wogan said the other day that he still regards Dusty as the finest ever British female solo vocalist.

Lots of great songs posted in the last 24 hours that I hadn't heard before - the likes of XTC and Eels have been on my must-check-out list for ages. I can see reading this thread may get expensive... Razz Anyway, I'm out at a concert tonight so it's only appropriate to big them up:

You know when a b-side is miles better than the single and should have been released instead? 'Beetlebum' is that actually happening...
