One immortal song

Postby Walk In My Shadow » 23 May 2024, 20:28

Since we're doing lists here's another one.


Bands/artists that do not belong to the BCB canon (and frankly are not too good imho). But they have one earworm...


Editors - Papillon

Coldplay - Viva la vida

Levellers - 15 years or One way

Dexy's - Too Rye ay

Proclaimers - 500 miles



Over to you!

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.

That's an album. I imagine you mean Come on Eileen?

Anyway, I can't believe you'd put this in the same company as the others.

That question is too big for my brain right now.

A fave topic of mine in all variants: :)

Queen - You're My Best Friend
R.E.M. - What's the Frequency, Kenneth?
White Town - Your Woman
Blue Öyster Cult - Don't Fear the Reaper
Journey - Don't Stop Believin', Wheel in the Sky

Okay, I'll get back to you with some more, fun thread!

Mud have a few, I’d add The Cat Crept In and Dynamite for starters.

I honestly can’t think of anything.

All the stuff that runs through my (thick) head is material I find seminally robust by bands/artistes, to which, I am familiar

Today it’s been Brian Eno’s Thursday Afternoon

Jazz generally does have a tune but they don’t necessarily play it to you.
