    Featured Artist: John Mayer

    1. Ben Lee - Home (2:40)
    2. Pasty White - Ice Cream (3:23)
    3. Spiderbait - Tonite (4:22)
    4. Graham Central Station - Feel the Need (3:56)
    A different type of love song. Nice and funky, get up and dance to; probably don't even think about it much as a love song if you're hearing it for the first time. "Feel the need in me" - I don't think it comes any more directly than that. Larry Graham clearly more than just a champion slap bassist.
    5. Specials, The - Too Much Too Young (2:05)
    6. Aerosmith - Janie's Got a Gun (5:30)
    A song about incest. Paedophilic incest. Janie puts her father out of her misery. The "cradle robber" is shot by Janie because nobody believes her when she tells them what he's doing. A great little story in this song and there's something pretty brave about writing it.
    7. Flight of The Conchords - Think Think About It (3:30)
    8. John Butler Trio - Zebra (3:59)
    9. You Am I - Purple Sneakers (3:30)
    10. Counting Crows - Accidentally in Love (3:12)
  • Lyrics Game #8 - Real Places

    Lyrics Game #8 – Real Places

    Um, well, I still haven’t progressed with the whole 1982 thing *embarrassed silence*….so here’s another Lyrics Game instead!

    This time around all the song titles have place names in them (planets,countries, cities, towns and streets). They’re all the names of real locations…though the song writer may not have necessarily have had the real location in mind. You’ll see what I mean. Some of them may also use a colloquial or slang name for that place (for instance LA might be referred to as ‘The City of Angels’)

    Nest time around I’ll do fictional places…..

    The Lyrics

    1. Walked in the cold air
    Freezing breath on a window plane
    Ultravox - Vienna

    2. Walked around no one around
    You were the one who taught me better
    a-ha - Move to Memphis

    3. Well, show me the way
    To the next whisky bar
    The Doors - Alabama Song

    4. Moving on the floor now, babe
    You’re a bird of paradise
    Duran Duran - Rio

    5. We sit and watch umbrellas fly
    I'm trying to keep my newspaper dry
  • It's 1982!...all over again....

    Yes, that's right, it's 1982!...all over again....

    Kind of self explanatory really. Or perhaps not.

    Well then, this is part two of my deranged plan to review my music collection year by year in an attempt to overcome the fact that I have too much music and too little time to really appreciate it, while also giving myself the rather odd opportunity to relive the 80s all over again – but as an older and (possibly) wiser person.

    Originally I thought I’d do one year per week, but considering I started 1981 way back in December and am only now getting to 1982 in April….let’s just say the timetable is extremely flexible! So why, you may ask, is it taking so long (or more likely you’re actually asking yourself either why is she doing this at all, or why am I reading this tosh…). Well there were various other things that popped up since last December as I blabbed on about in the 1981 Review – but despite those it still takes a long time to organize – finding out the year’s releases and hits…
