Chust now and then, you come across

  1. a perfect song.

    Perfect in its execution, its production, its musicality, its expression, and - very importantly - in its lyrics. No over-the-top barlocks. Just simple perfection, almost without trying.

    I rediscovered one such song when I was clearing through my old CDs looking for stuff to throw on eBay or give to the local charity shop. What's this - "The Best of Gallacher & Lyle"?! Jeepers, what made me buy that decades ago?

    Hmmm, puts it on. Hmmm, nice songs. And a couple of bits of utter perfection.

    The first is Mhairu (you need to forgive the silly spelling). A song of returning to your old haunts to find how it's all changed. Simple, painfully poignant, lyrics. Hits the spot. Every time.

    And then, on the same album, is I'm Amazed. Travel back to the awkwardness of your teens (or - cough - for me, my 20's...). The insecurity of first love that makes you question everything.

    "But when you've got the blues, I'll give you your dues - you can pass them round."

    Oh, sod it - there's also "We".

    My gawd, they are terrific song-writers.

    Oh, & don't come on here spoiling my thread with your pitiful selections of pfttft-perfect songs. 'Cos they won't be.

    Ta very much

    You must be the "Devils Advocate"  to suggest that garbage is worth listening too.
  8. I am, and I did, but it isn't.

    On t'other hand, you are, you are, and you sooo are.

    But your 'taste' in muzak is still pitiful.

  13. 'Pitiful' ma ***, Fat Tone. You are chust not in touch with your inner soul.

    Oh, and 'chust' is just an intermittent speech impediment.

    How can you 'type' an impediment?

    Are you mocking the afflicted?
