I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black With flowers and my love both never to come back I see people turn their heads and quickly look away Like a newborn baby, it just happens every day
Taken from Paint it Black from The Rolling Stones’ studio album Aftermath (1966). A huge number one on both sides of the Atlantic, it’s still a favourite on their live tours, once I was able to see on Friday. Expect a post on it soon.
Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face And stars fill my dream I’m a traveller of both time and space To be where I have been
The opening lyrics of Kashmir from English rock icons Led Zeppelin from their sixth studio album Physical Graffiti (1975). Features one of the all-time escalating builds ups, the song is considered by the band to be their most definitive. You can find the 8 minute and 30 second song here, along with another seven of my favourite lengthy music pieces.
