Re: Why it's almost like the blues?

Hi, Picking up on Tchocolatl's last line in the quoted post, what do others here make of why it's almost like the blues? I've listened to the song twice and have an opinion as to why. I'm far more interested in hearing from others on their take on this than in posting my opinion. If people post the...

Re: Listen to "Almost Like The Blues"

"There is no G-d in heaven There is no hell below So says the great professor of all there is to know But I’ve had the invitation that a sinner can’t refuse It’s almost like salvation It’s almost like the blues It’s almost like the blues" What does he mean by "ive had the invitation that a sinner c...

Re: Listen to "Almost Like The Blues"

I'm not sure what he means by " the blues". If he means depression then why does he mention it in the end next to salvation? I think he's just talking about the kind of everyday moans we all have which give us the 'blues' and which pale in comparison to the kind of 'real' problems he mentions in th...

Re: "That don't make it junk"

I always had similar thoughts, about it being about trying to transcend the ego (i.e. the sperate sense of self) while living as and through the ego.

Re: When,Where,And What Was The First LC Song You Heard?

I was watching 'Mills and Tunes', an old programme on VH1 with comedian Bob Mills in the mid 90s. He actually made a 5 minute impassioned speech about how us youngsters should throw away our Blur and Oasis CDs and get I'm You Man and actually learn a thing or two - I'm paraphrasing here a bit but I ...

Re: Tour Continuing Until December 2013??

By my calculations he'll be 80 in September next year, so in my somewhat hopeful mind that just means he'll have to start another tour to keep his wish to be on stage again in his 80s. I hope he's still in rude health and it isn't getting more draining for him being on tour and performing such long ...

Re: UNCUT : 'Old Ideas' is Album of The Year

Number 4 in Mojos list too :) I remember years ago seeing Ten New Songs somewhere to the back of the Uncut Top 50 for that year, can't remember how Dear Heather did other than it wasn't near the very top. It's funny how public perception changes over time and can influence these kind of things. I kn...

How to get from Tonbridge to Wembley

For anyone with non refundable hotel bookings in Tonbridge, it may well still be possible to see the concert at Wembley and travel back afterwards. I live in Kent and regularly have to find my way back from events in different parts of London, it's not ideal of course but is doable. If you do have a...

In the frosty winter on a cold clear day when the sun is going down at 4pm is perfect for me. I wonder if it's a marketing decision to release all his records during the winter, at least the last 3 have been :lol:
