I Am Flailing, I Am Flailing.

We interrupt these proceedings for a short message, whinge from our sponsor. WTF ! Last week I carefully prepared a post for today and scheduled it to appear while I was out. Did it publish, No. Can I find it, No. Yet the previous one went through sweetly. Having more faith than I probably should have I did not have a written record of the records I chose, expecting the post itself to be adequate record. So over 12 hours later than expected I present you with probably a totally different list of songs to enjoy(?).

Last week a good friend mentioned Annie Lennox as a favourite of hers. I have to admire her good taste. Here, just for you Andrea, no-one else will listen.

Going a bit further back now to 1966, grab your flower power shirts and your flares. Prepare yourself for a sigh of the young Neil Young (pun intended) and Stephen Stills.

From the same year there was another fantastic group who never achieved the popularity their music deserved.

From 1992 I have some music that surprised me when I heard if for the first timed just a couple of years ago. They’re English, who’da known?

Now just rewind a bit to 1987. This was a bit of a comeback song for our last guest. He had built a solid career in the 70’s but had started to fade a bit, though never before a live audience who loved him, I hope you enjoy this and perhaps learn a little ore about his music from the earlier period.

I wish you all a good week. Keep the world happy and cherished with Hugs. Huge Hugs to you all.

    I’m betting your post is still somewhere in there … last week, WordPress made some changes and I had the same problem … couldn’t find a post. Go into “Posts” on the menu, make sure to select “All Posts”, and it is likely still there, either scheduled for a different date than you thought, else still in ‘draft’ mode.

    I did listen to the Annie Lennox song, but in truth didn’t care much for it (sorry, Andrea). I loved Buffalo Springfield and the Youngbloods … may use that Youngbloods song in my own music post soon. The 4th wouldn’t play in my country. Though I’m not too familiar with Labi Siffre, I really enjoyed this one. Thanks for some good music to brighten a rainy Saturday afternoon!

    I tried looking there before but no harm trying again. Labi Siffre has made some lovely music so I’m glad you got to hear him. You should see if there’s a you tube version of the Pasadenas you can see, it’s a great toe tapper song.

  3. All good David. The Pasidinas wouldn’t play in the US. Have a peaceful Sunday.

    I reckon whatever Annie Lennox sings is a magnet 🙂

    A great set of songs, David. Whatever you were planning to post, these are a fine replacement! Top one of these for me is Buffalo Springfield, with The Youngbloods a close second.

      Buffalo Springfield were superb but The Youngbloods touched me with this song. I think they were very underrated, Annie Lennox deserved her stardom, she gave girls boost they needed. Labi Siffre was a nice listen to talent while the Pasadenas were my bit of fun for the day.

    Hello David. Such a grand selection. At first I couldn’t listen to the Pasadenas one but I changed my VPN to England and it worked great. Thanks for the introduction to some new music. Hugs

    David, I love the song choices. Well done. Annie Lennox can flat out sing, in a very powerful way. By the way, have you ever seen Dave Stewart (her band mate) interview Ringo Starr about drumming. It is a must see. Keith

      Thanks so much Keith. Truth be told, I haven’t seen or thought about Dave Stewart since the Eurythmics days. I’ll have to look that up.

        David, I had not either, then I saw this podcast or TV show where interviews musicians. I did not know who he was at first, then Googled during the show. Starr was very forthcoming, as per usual, and I learned that Ringo is a left handed person using a right handed drum kit. He said on certain notes you can tell, as there is a slight delay before he hit the opposite drum. Keith

      I have seen the interview now Keith. I enjoyed it though I didn’t think Dave Steward took to interviewing like a duck takes to water. Ring is a good subject in that respect.

    Okay, I am late to this party, but wow! I listed to Annie Lennox, probably just because you said no one else would, and I have to say I will check further. There is something about the voice and the genre-bending sound and video to make me think something to say. There were other surprises (to me) but I hate to show my ignorance. And then, Labi Siffre. I need a new (old) playlist!

      Annie Lennox is immensely popular but I didn’t think that track would have been the expected one. If you don’t know her well start off with Sweet Dreams are Made of This by the Eurythmics Labi Siffre is a gem. I’m glad you weren’t bored.
      Huge Hugs
