DEXYS MIDNIGHT RUNNERS – Massive Hit ‘COME ON EILEEN’ Released 35 Years Ago…

When timeless in sound and vision…


‘Come On Eileen


From Young Soul Rebels (1980) to Folky Pop Stars (1982). From ‘Geno’ to ‘Come On Eileen‘. Released on 25 June 1982 the single hit the top spot of the charts in the UK & US. The irresistibly catchy and inventively composed classic was written by eccentric frontman  Kevin Rowland, Jim Paterson and Billy Adams. The famous chorus was actually inspired by ‘A Man Like Me’, a song by the 1960s British soul group Jimmy James and the Vagabonds. The worldwide notorious video clip was shot in the south London suburb of Kennington. Here are the swinging DEXYS MIDNIGHT RUNNERS

RADIOHEAD – Monumental Magic At Glastonbury 2017…

Weekly fuel to soundtrack your favorite 48 hours…


Yesterday RADIOHEAD played Glastonbury, probably the best festival on this planet. I wasn’t there (I’m busy baking in red-hot Italy, on vacation). Even with a hangover from
last night I checked the BBC’s website immediately this morning to find out if they had
the permission to cover the performance from one of the biggest rock bands ever, the masters of intense drama and amplified melancholia. Bingo! Here’s Thom Yorke, and his stellar musicians looking and sounding incredibly inspired, motivated and emotional. Experience three outstanding renditions of three of their most wanted masterstrokes…

FAKE PLASTIC TREES (1995 – from ‘The Bends’ LP)

CREEP (1993 – from debut album ‘Pablo Honey’)

NO SURPRISES (1997 – from ‘OK Computer’ album)

Okay, my senses are activated now. Feeling alive and kicking (sort of) again. I’m gonna watch the whole show over the weekend. Thank you Radiohead, thank you BBC …

ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN – Epic Masterstroke ‘NOTHING LASTS FOREVER’ Released 20 Years Ago…

When timeless in sound and vision…


‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ by ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN


After the band split in 1988 ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN reformed in 1997 with original members Ian McCulloch (singer/songwriter/big mouth), Will Sergeant (musical maestro, guitarist) and Les Pattinson (bassist). Unfortunately they had to replace the late Pete De Freitas, the group’s first drummer who died tragically in a motorcycle accident (1989). Comeback album EVERGREEN was an overall moody LP with some outstanding tracks such as:  I Want To Be There (When You Come) / I’ll Fly Tonight / In My Time and Just A Touch Away. But the unquestionable masterstroke was epic single NOTHING LASTS FOREVER. Melancholic brilliance with McCulloch‘s voice as the song’s captivating instrument. A truly grand composition and performance (with, yes, Liam Gallagher on ‘la la la’ backing vocals in the chorus). The single was released on 20 June 1997 – 20 years ago. Here’s the clip, shot in Morocco, for this timeless classic…

I want it now
I want it now
Not the promises of what tomorrow brings
I need to live in dreams today
I’m tired of the song that sorrow sings

And I want more than I can get
Just trying to, trying to, trying to forget

I’d walk to you through rings of fire
And never let you know the way I feel
Under skin is where I hide
The love that always gets me on my knees

And I want more than I can get
Just trying to, trying to, trying to forget

[Repeat: x4]
Nothing ever lasts forever

I want it now
I want it now
Don’t tell me that my ship is coming in
Nothing comes to those who wait
Time’s running out the door you’re running in

So, I want more than I can get
Just trying to, trying to, trying to forget

[Repeat: x4]
Nothing ever lasts forever

[Repeat: x8]
All the shadows and the pain are coming to you

Evergreen album – released 14 July 1997…
