  • Brothers In Arms Review

    7 Jan 2011, 10:59 by Dill863

    Allright, here it comes, I've kind of put off writing this review for a while and I have no idea why. First let me start off by saying this is probably my favourite album of all time(though Love Over Gold and Dire Straits come close - so I'm sorry if it's a bit overly positive.

    So Far Away starts the album off. The track hit 19 on the American charts, so it's fairly well known. I must admit I wasn't that big a fan of it when I first listened to this one, because I was so caught up in Walk of Life and Money for Nothing, but now I really dig it. It's a great catchy lyric that makes you always want to sing along, it's a great song made melancholy, when reading the lyrics, it could've been the most depressing song ever produced. I love Mark's vocal on this one and it's cool that he didn't really shred out or do a long winding solo because it would've broken the beat. Great song.

    Money for Nothing comes next and is probably the most "Rock" song Mark Knopfler ever wrote. …
  • It's My Funeral (The Ultimate Mix Tape)

    25 May 2007, 16:06 by JoeIsListening

    I'm not sure why this all came about. Maybe it was rtreynor's great requiem for the mix tape. Or maybe I was just in a morose mood. Whatever the case, yesterday I went through my iTunes collection and made up a playlist called It's My Funeral, designed to be ripped to a CD and played during calling hours when I've finally shuffled off the mortal coil and joined the choir invisible.

    (And yes, I know that technically it's a mix CD, but I come from an age where we called them Mix Tapes, and I just can't shake the old school name.)

    Anyway, here's what's on it, with explanatories (and I may play a bit more with the sequencing):

    Emmylou Harris - All My Tears
    It don't matter where you bury me, I'll be home and I'll be free

    A song of hope and a reminder that I'll be in a better place.

    One of my all-time favorite songs, the one that started it all. I put a copy on a CD and instructed my wife to play it on repeat at my funeral. …
  • Why Worry?

    Why worry, there should be laughter after the pain
    There should be sunshine after rain
    These things have always been the same
    So why worry now?

    Baby I see this world has made you sad

    Some people can be bad

    The things they do, the things they say

    But baby I'll wipe away those bitter tears

    I'll chase away those restless fears

    That turn your blue skies into grey



    Why worry, there should be laughter after the pain

    There should be sunshine after rain

    These things have always been the same

    So why worry now



    Baby when I get down I turn to you

    And you make sense of what I do

    I know it isn't hard to say

    But baby just when this world seems mean and cold

    Our love comes shining red and gold

    And all the rest is by the way



    Why worry, there should be laughter after pain

    There should be sunshine after rain

    These things have always been the same

    So why worry now

    Why Worry
