Mark Knopfler's playing on that one is beautifully laid back.

I know "Magic Man" by Heart is not a song that typically evokes emotion because of its meaning, but the other day I heard it while going to work and I got a bit emotional just because of the sound of Ann Wilson's voice.

Anyway, here is a moment of sublime bass note choices by the late great Chris Squire. The section starts at 3:24 and the most beautiful bass notes I've ever heard start at 4:24 - it's that little run that starts in a high register and resolves on a low note. That one moment is everything.

I finally listened to the words of this song just a few years ago.

I started bawling like a baby. My wife wanted to know if I was ok.

It just hits you differently when you have kids.

edit: I still can't listen to it. Hits me hard every time.

Another day's at end
Mama says she's tired again
No one can even begin to tell her
I hardly know what to say
But maybe it's better that way
If poppa were here I'm sure he'd tell her

Shannon is gone I heard
She's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island
With a shaded tree
Just like the one in our backyard

Mama tries hard to pretend
That things will get better again
Somehow she's keepin' it all inside her
But finally the tears fill our eyes
And I know that somewhere tonight
She knows how much we really miss her

Shannon is gone I heard
She's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island
With a shaded tree
Just like the one in our back yard
Ah
Just like the one in our back yard
Ah

A really great song by an Iconic band, and I am not into Iconic anything...



"I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know no way of judging of the future but by the past."
Patrick Henry 1775

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.

Here is one I stumbled one. I’ve heard this old lament before, but this simple rendition is touching.



And Ken Burns in his masterful series on the Civil War used Ashokan Farewell several times. It was used as the background music to Major Sullivan Ballou’s letter to his wife Sarah.




Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

so many options!

I am a huge Kate Bush and Kraftwerk fan so the two that jump to mind...


This Woman's Work (note Tim Mcinnerny in the vid, i thought he was fab as Captain Darling in Blackadder goes forth and other blackadder roles) - from the youtube comments I now see this song was in handmaid's tale!




Kraftwerk - Computer Love


Coldplay did a decent tribute to Computer Love by adapting the tune, with Kraftwerk's permission, to create their song Talk

This was ironically a huge summer hit, if you just listen to the refrain it sounds like a summer-rememberance song, but listen to lyrics and it is a song from someone about to pass away.

My first memory of really being emotionally moved by a song (and album)...

Pink Floyd's album The Final Cut has probably 4 contenders.

But I go with this one, it saddens me that we lost her. RIP Dolores.
