Yesterday, when it seemed so cool When I walked you home, kissed goodnight I said, “It’s love”, you said, “Alright” It’s funny how, I could never cry Until tonight, when you pass by Hand in hand with another guy You’re dressed to kill and guess who’s dying
Taken from the song Dance Away by English glam rockers Roxy Music from their sixth studio album Manifesto (1979). They’re such a great band and I’ve already referenced them with Jealous Guy and More than This.
I’ve been listening to so much music recently I thought I should do a more detailed music post. I decided to choose my eight favourite songs to feature a saxophone. There may be great ones in songs by Bruce Springsteen, Pink Floyd and Sade among others, but I just couldn’t leave any of these out. Do you know most of them?
I’ve been told I’m as good as whistling as I am singing. Which I’ve decided to take as a compliment and use it as inspiration for a post about some of the best whistling songs around. Featuring more one hit wonders than you might think (more here), please enjoy my eight favourite whistling songs that just beg you to join in. Do you have a favourite? Any others that you like?
The storm is breaking or so it seems We’re too young to reason, too grown up to dream
Taken from the song Slave to Love by Bryan Ferry, from his UK chart-topper solo album Boys and Girls (1985). I’m a big fan of his elegant, velvety smooth voice, especially with his work on Roxy Music. Jealous Guy and More than This are my personal favourites.
Has there been a song that you were familiar with and then heard another artist’s take on it and been completely blown away? Including the times you actually liked the initial release? I thought I’d choose my favourites and see what you thought. Are you in agreement with many of the songs? Which ones would you add? As always your comments and suggestions are more than encouraged.
