    The Bluemoon Song Cup 2024 - P19 - Round 1/CA/M5 - Wilson Pickett (Bring It On Home To Me) v Pet Shop Boys (Always On My Mind)

    After hearing both original songs, I'll give a nod to Bronski Beat's interpretation in taking a 1961 2 minute 'death dittie' and turning it into 6 minutes with the help of Donna Summer. And unlike John Leyton, Bronski Beat didn't need to bring on a female singer to hit those notes. My wife is...

    Blue Moon Playlist Review Club - Season 2, Episode 17 - Alcohol - Mancitydoogle (pg 344)

    Yeah, I didn't want to snipe from you, but you've got more than a few swings of the bat at this point, and this was my last one. ;-) I was always going to end on something more sobering, but I struggled to find another one that hits me like this. Same. It can't be easy at all, especially in...

    The Album Review Club - Week #124 - (page 1478) The Magical World of the Strands - Michael Head & The Strands

    After hearing both, it's more than a strong suspicion to me. Radiohead wrote HtDC in June 1997 while on tour for OK Computer, but that is the same year that this album came out. Those songs are just too similar and I'm quite shocked I can't find any notes about one being a rip off of the...

    Blue Moon Playlist Review Club - Season 2, Episode 17 - Alcohol - Mancitydoogle (pg 344)

    For my final selection, I'll go with one that's always been a good reminder to me of moderation. I listened to this album through the pandemic when most every day was a reason to drink. How he made it through that time given his past is still impressive to me. "It Gets Easier" - Jason Isbell...

    Probably best that your schedule opened up after Editor's Choice. We had 2-3 albums worth of discussion over the last one! And all good for the one prior. I'm not sure you'd be into that one, but any feedback is appreciated anytime down the line. You don't open your eyes for a while, you...

    The Bluemoon Song Cup 2024 - P19 - Round 1/CA/M5 - Wilson Pickett (Bring It On Home To Me) v Pet Shop Boys (Always On My Mind)

    That's hiliarious, and of course I had to get the backstory on what I thought was a Nilsson song all along... Badfinger, huh? A shame they didn't profit... https://www.smoothradio.com/features/the-story-of/without-you-harry-nilsson-lyrics-meaning/ This might be close. Now I need to hear the...

    The Bluemoon Song Cup 2024 - P19 - Round 1/CA/M5 - Wilson Pickett (Bring It On Home To Me) v Pet Shop Boys (Always On My Mind)

    Because Bruce back in the 70s and 80s was mostly an AOR rock artist, and not typically a Billboard Top 100 artist. The closest was #2 for "Dancing in the Dark", which was kept from #1 by Duran Duran's "The Reflex" and the year's song of the 1984 summer, Prince's "When Doves Cry". Bruce did get...

    Blue Moon Playlist Review Club - Season 2, Episode 17 - Alcohol - Mancitydoogle (pg 344)

    Just got back from an evening bike ride, and got my first listen to the whole playlist in. Thanks to @Mancitydoogle for keeping it up to date! I don't know what it is about alcohol, but there are some damn stellar songs on this one. Lots of new tunes and artists I hadn't heard either, which...

    Blue Moon Playlist Review Club - Season 2, Episode 17 - Alcohol - Mancitydoogle (pg 344)

    I listened to it from one of my playlists, so it is one of the songs from that album that struck me as quite powerful. Nothing wrong with being clever and subtle either. "The best of me left hours ago" is one of the best lines that have stuck with me too. I also saw my "Sober Up" track from...

    Guess I'll keep my 2nd selection close to my childhood home too. From the City of Brotherly Love and Underdogs... "Tears Over Beers" - Modern Baseball

    Blue Moon Playlist Review Club - Season 2, Episode 17 - Alcohol - Mancitydoogle (pg 344)

    I listened to that earlier today and said, "nah, I'll save that for someone else...". Great minds and all that. ;-)

    The Bluemoon Song Cup 2024 - P19 - Round 1/CA/M5 - Wilson Pickett (Bring It On Home To Me) v Pet Shop Boys (Always On My Mind)

    Ruh roh, doesn't look like good news from elsewhere was coming in there... And best not to go down early to EVE either while you're at it.

    I'm impressed with the speed of your Field of Dreams results. ;-) (“If you build it, they will come”)

    Ah right, I had it confused with "Good Vibrations". At the time I thought how much better that song would have been. And if it does show up in 2024, one of us is playing a good Clarkie.

    I voted for it each and every time it was up. Not knowing whose song it was. I'll remind myself of this factoid when mine crash and burn. And yes, there was a mistake, but I'll confirm on your last sentence you don't really mean that it wasn't on your part. Well done.

    Radiohead – OK Computer 1997 – the backstory… 27 years ago to this day 21 of May, this album was released. I was oblivious to both the album and the band being in my early 30s with other US mainstream rock on my interest list, and new fatherhood occupying my time from the prior year. Foo...

    Ohhh, that's almost too good of an intro into my write-up, so hold that thought!
