Anyway the guy sounds a bit like a more contemporary form of Morrissey...he is definitely a crooner...check out the beautiful song "Your arms around me" (Live in Bloomington) below...haha I love how he says "avocado"!!!

Sinead is coming over in March! It's been a while, but I'm pretty sure being in the presence of her performing this song LIVE would be amazing! This is definitely one of THE BEST songs of all time...her delivery- (even in the clip) is like nothing else...not only that voice, but her face is strangely engaging, mesmerising, captivating and makes for compelling viewing...something few singers can manage even in real life!

This would have to be my favourite KEANE song... I think it really resonates due to that bittersweet feeling of growing up... isn't it interesting how often music takes you back to a certain moment in time...I can pinpoint this song to an exact moment in time...a memory.

So I feel my love of world music has not been adequately represented on this blog to date so I'm seeking to redress the matter...the biggest problem is that being such a "specific" interest, there are not many youtube videos available...
anyway here is one which I, fellow learning Spanish enthusiasts, and Old Fogeys alike enjoy...these Chilean legends have been making music since 1967!!!

Probably my favourite Beach Boys song...I'm not sure why but I always think of the tv show THE WONDER YEARS when I heard this song, and of its protagonist Kevin Arnold ie the actor Fred Savage...haha he was my hugest crush growing up!! LOL

Continuing with classic Australian songs of the 80s, this is one of only two "hits" this band had - the other being Bury me deep in love. This song is dedicated to my beautiful town ;) and also as a prelude to...I'm getting excited...cos I've got tix for the THE TRIFFIDS: a tribute to David McComb gig as part of the Sydney Festival!! I can't wait for January!!!
