Answer with a four line poem about an album

Postby Minnie the Minx » 30 Jan 2020, 22:10

In retrospect, letting my Mum
Play my copy of ‘Setting Sons’
Only reinforced her view
that Weller could not sing in tune
You come at the Queen, you best not miss.

Some of the beeps on ‘Moon Safari’
Put me in mind of Atari!
I wish Air would write another
One like this. It is a stunner.

If your neighbours you do hate,
I can guarantee this grates:
Loudly start every Wednesday
with Non Stop Erotic Cabaret
You come at the Queen, you best not miss.

Did you know I first heard ‘Rio’
in a car with Ronnie Dio?
I screamed at him to watch his speed.
Save a Fucking Prayer, indeed!

'Alien Lanes' by Guided by Voices
a smorgasbord of musical choices
so motor away 'cause the club is open
with Pollard, Sprout, and Baron von Richtofen.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Mostly it was down to Syd,
'Cause writing songs is what he did,
He played guitar and sang, forlorn,
On Piper at the Gates of Dawn.

Some people say it should be one,
As two discs make it far too long,
I muse upon its sleeve in white,
And tell myself, "They're talking shite."

The Belfast lad known as Ivan
Wouldn't ever quit his gurnin'
Even when his britches were burnin'
He ne,'er houl his whisht, yer wan.

With jangle pop, these northern boys,
Made Madchester the trendy noise
The sleeve art looked like Jackson Pollock's
The follow-up was, sadly, bollocks.

Mozzer used to be for me
The king of wonderful misery
With Murdered Meat and a Hollowful Hat
I’m so sad he became such a massive twat
Give a shit or be a shit.

The title song's a shopping list
And England seen through rosy mist
A world that's never ever been
So stick that up your village green!

The Bear says it’s metal but others say it’s punk
When it first came out they called it Spunk
A debate for a JU between ageing alcoholics
Standing around and talking Bollocks
Give a shit or be a shit.

Some say it's twee, others shite
But personally, it's never bored me
A four-line poem is exactly half of what I should write
About David Bowie's Hunky Dory

Vocal arrangements,
And lots of things strange, meant
A night at the opera
Ruled the glam pop era.

In another ten years time
Who can say what we will find
What lies waiting down the line
Listening to 1989

I thought to myself, lets subvert the form
Pick something stupid, outside the norm
Long titles, that idea could well be fun
The Boy Bands Have Won, and All the Copyists and the Tribute Bands and the TV Talent Show Producers Have Won, If We Allow Our Culture to Be Shaped by Mimicry, Whether from Lack of Ideas or from Exaggerated Respect. You Should Never Try to Freeze Culture. What You Can Do Is Recycle That Culture. Take Your Older Brother's Hand-Me-Down Jacket and Re-Style It, Re-Fashion It to the Point Where It Becomes Your Own. But Don't Just Regurgitate Creative History, or Hold Art and Music and Literature as Fixed, Untouchable and Kept Under Glass. The People Who Try to 'Guard' Any Particular Form of Music Are, Like the Copyists and Manufactured Bands, Doing It the Worst Disservice, Because the Only Thing That You Can Do to Music That Will Damage It Is Not Change It, Not Make It Your Own. Because Then It Dies, Then It's Over, Then It's Done, and the Boy Bands Have Won
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.
