earworms

somewhere to record those tunes that waft into my conciousness

don’t know what an earth made me think of  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQYQTFudrqc some songs come up during Facebook dialogues – first heard http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMqkNUU5yRY&feature=fvst when in Prague, sharing my space with an Australian; this is a real Oz tour de force. Writing Prague naturally reminds me of Brno where there was once a truly independent radio station called Radio Hady that lost its spontaneity and unrivalled eclecticism when it was absorbed into the Kiss empire, became Kiss Hady and developed play lists, rather than a DJ’s random selection of what he wanted to play. Each week, the Monday morning show invariably included http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2I84-A9duY which did help me keep things in perspective. Happily the Radio 1 based in Prague is still independent and often worth listening to: some of the ads are delightful and you don’t even need Czech to understand them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHa1ThS9avA could have been written for someone I once knew. U2 was the band most listened to in long drives around southern England. Tangenting all over the place, saw REM in Prague one night; Michael Stipe really was hurting when he performed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijZRCIrTgQc: he was medivaced to the US military hospital in Frankfurt immediately the concert finished – he was singing with a burst appendix so he really was hurting – that really was method performing in a different league from Dustin Hoffman. It’s tahe time of year when  all the Christmas songs are coming out of the woodwork http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLb213lak5s definietlty qualifies as an ear worm but my favourite is   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvNRHrKyaX4&feature=related My two favourite positive anthems are http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAJ2AoEwDvY ironically written and performed before his untimely death and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQQpkll5aoA both Marley and Lennon died young but worked to make the world a better place. Prague/Oz  induced tangent suggests this tune http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GqJ4N6Z7l00. According to an Australian girl friend who who interviewed Black for the Melbourne Age, the singer had written and recorded this song when just about everything that could go wrong in his life had gone wrong and the resulting song was presenting at deeply sardonic world view. Still, global fame and its accompanying largesse must have helped. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bN1oDb14S68 what on earth put that one into my head? Now stuck in a road song groove – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMbATaj7Il8http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkYRPumSU_8 nothing to do with roads http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRnUpjEV8L0 but from the same album as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBZvWTeMgi8 so I guess there is a tortuous link somehere

This for me counts as a road son – featured heavily during a nad ascapade around the castles of Southern Moravia ten years and a long hot summer ago  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6sOpbRL8R4g, the other tunes that featured included http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWv2juM01T0&feature=fvst

This is going to be very much work in progress as I keep finding/remembering tunes to include. for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIMNXogXnvE&feature=channel and of course http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0MabBkvQks

Damn you Desert Island Discs will be stuck with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfrRrPNu01w all day now… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BxZ3_7kk00 suddenly appeared from somewhere. Two ballads from the sixties http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fVPagHR88E and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHS8hj4TdT8 it was many years before I realised the place actually existed, might be mis-remembering but I think this UK charted at the same time as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoBWW3OAhgw

Today is the day when the world says goodbye,RIP, to Gerry Rafferty http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHWJOUiKvRk&feature=fvst and [Tarratino gore warning]  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=komvFIGYBYM&feature=fvst – those of a nervous disposition might prefer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMAIsqvTh7g&feature=list_related&playnext=1&list=MLGxdCwVVULXfm2InaUKW9T2RSnqtqpTvp

    Excellent mix of songs here, some of my long time favourites, including Cave/Minogues’ Wild Roses and 24 Hours from Tulsa. Quite a few other road songs spring to mind … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4wCkkMVpzk, a bit of a naff video but imho a great deal better than the original; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyJt05xVUJo&feature=related – another of my old favourites and for no apparent reason apart from the car theme … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GemKqzILV4w.

    Music – where would we be without it? 🙂
