    Cracking Song Gromit!

    Every now and then a song strikes a chord (no pun intended!) and is solid gold. A song that I love because it seduces the senses and has a gorgeousness I cannot put my finger on, maybe it is just me? It has all the right ingredients....
    'wearing the inside out' by Pink Floyd from Division Bell with lead vocals sung by Rick Wright.

    Am I going mad or does anyone else see where I am coming from?!

    Are there any songs that make you feel that way?!

    Yes I know where you're coming from - these do it for me.

    Maps by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs or Hallucinations by the Raveonettes.
    So much for Pathos

    I have probably 15 or so songs that really get me... but here is a sort of 'what could have been' - Siohban Maher was the singer with River City People and she never really became as well known as she should have been...

    Pink Floyd, wish you were here, first album I ever bought & always a favourite.

    A definite Dave Gilmourish slant here,not surprised...he is a sickeningly talented musician...

    On an Island - Live... with Crosby and Nash (from CSNY) doing backing vocals

    Edit... just noticed that he has Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music) on guitar as well

    OK, sentimental time now .....

    Me and my girlfriend at the time both loved this band when they came out. Walking on Ice was a particular favorite. Unfortunately we were both too young to handle the responsibilities that the relationship brought and we split, but she was always the one that got away for me...... Couldn't listen to the song for the best part of twenty years.

    However, cutting a long story short we got back together recently after 21 years apart and life is great . That song ( and the whole Say Something Good Allbum) get played quite a lot again now !!!

    Chilling out the last 20years with Tangerine Dream and Thief, particularly the Beach theme on a hot summers day, on the cliffs, overlooking Newquay, as a Coastguard.(waiting for the inevitable 'shout')

    I was a Lifeguard at Newquay many years ago.

    (But it was more about the chances of pulling, than the chances of pulling anybody out of the sea)

    Yes they were a great little band (too short lived by far)...
    Here is a 'Live' version of ''Whats wrong with dreaming'' with a deliciously jiggling Siohban (she gorgeous )

    I always meant to return to this thread with a subtly different slant...when I was a teenager I wasnt really into music in a big way although I quite liked some of the 'Searchers' stuff and also some of the 'Pretty Things'.
    I started to take an interest in music about 1970 and here are 2 songs/tunes that I thought were outstanding in 1970

    'Albatross' by Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac...such a departure from their previous straight bluesy style

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Viqr6KHwJjc

    Peter Green was a wonderful guitarist and was lucky enough to see him live

    Next is Moody Blues 'Question' - French TV 1970...wasnt sure which song to go for (big choice LOL)but I saw these guys live many times...very talented
