Cancer, by Joe Jackson

I loved that album, Night and Day. It was very significant to me. The singles, Breaking Us in Two and Steppin’ Out, were carved into my brain.

Cheers to Ministry! One of the best live tracks ever, in my opinion.

Coffin Club is da shiznit!

I had a phenomenal time at the Coffin Club this evening and met some wonderful people and had some wonderful conversations and experiences that will probably change the rest of my life . . . which experiences tend to do anyway. 🙂

I lost my phone however! And I hope to recover it tomorrow. 🙂⚰️🙃📱

Check out “A View To A Kill” on Smule

I found this awesome recording of “A View To A Kill” on #Smule: https://www.smule.com/sing-recording/431877638_3967598367

🤣🤣🤣🤣

I think that the algorithm could use some work there, Smule. My track was not very synced-up with the original vocalist, and I hope that’s obvious to everybody who listened to this. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 But it is a pretty neat system! I wonder what caused the lag. Maybe it’s something I can fix when I do it next time.

Watch “The Battle Of Epping Forest” on YouTube

FYI, this is what is called music. (And art.) 🙂 Just a reminder. 💜 It seems like there is some confusion these days about what is music and what is simply rhythmic noise.

A new take on an old song: Digging in the Dirt, by Peter Gabriel

What is a song, after all? What makes a song a song? What is the essence of the song? I think it’s just that thing out there that you appreciate for what it is and enjoy it!!! Or you don’t like it and you want it to go away. I do, anyway. I’m a very harsh music critic. I think it’s because my ears are so sensitive, delicate and fragile. 🙂 That’s part of it. But it’s also about how it strikes you. That’s what it comes down to, it seems; whatever we conceive of as “music appreciation” or “liking a song” is the intersection of your life, that moment you hear the song, and the multitude of things that begat the songwriter’s product.
