No Sax Please, We're British

This is one of the few exceptions.  What a fabulous song, of which Sherlock Holmes would have been proud, no doubt.  It takes me back to school – not the usual dormitory or dayroom memories, but lying in bed in the Infirmary suffering with some Godawful lurgy in a ward full of other snivelling wrecks.   69 more words

Born...

…to run.

Sorry, it’s not Born in the USA. I’m not at all keen on that one.  What can I say?

Really, I’m not a big fan of Mr Springsteen and his oeuvre, but it would be impossible to deny that this one oozes class.   122 more words

A Spot of Branson in a Pickle

I’ve certainly not seen this video before.  Really, I can’t believe they had bouncy castles back then.

Much like the previous song of theirs featured on here way back in July, there’s an irresistible groove running through this.   90 more words

What does "Not Today" by Twenty One Pilots mean?

Only two songs left on Twenty One Pilots’ Blurryface, and this one’s “Not Today.” The song is clever and quick and engaging. Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun are forecasting the end of their album with a climactic fight against Tyler’s alter-ego Blurryface, the darker part of him. 929 more words

Made in Taiwan

There are several Ash songs I could have chosen for today, but I settled on this, largely because it mentions Taiwan a number of times.  You can’t say that about many other pop songs.   72 more words

Birds

This is a song that never really gets heard on the radio.  It comes from a band who have never had a particularly high profile (and I’m not even sure if they are still making music), but they’ve made some terrific albums.   39 more words
