"Crazy" - I love it! - I fished around and found maybe 10 versions by some well known artists - but Gnarls Barkley definitely gets my vote.
Sorry corlenbelspar - "Comfortably Numb" is a bit depressing for me - isn't it about dying?
Comfortably Numb was about where doctors bust into Pink's hotel room and brought him out of a drug overdose in order to shove him on to stage to perform a concert. Pink himself was always going through some kind of mental breakdown throughout the album and movie due to traumatic events that kept happening to him.
I always thought "Now I've got that feeling once again, I can't explain, you would not understand, this is not how I am." was one of the best lyrics I ever heard in my life.
corlenbelspar - I'll bow to your superior knowlege!
Now..........for a "GET UP AND GO" piece,
how can you go past: Crushing Day by Joe Satriani (world's best guitarist?) - it just gets me up and going! - I'm still trying to figure out how to get it into my alarm clock!
Hi Farraway. It would have helped if I'd spelt the guys name properly, lol. I had a complete blank and went through Giles, Niles ... you get my drift ;-) I used to sing it in the car with windows down, kids in the back laughing.
Thanks Narnia :-) yes that is a good song.
I have to admit to having a love of the vast majority of styles of music. Here are my all time faves: (not inc those I've already mentioned).
Every Breath You Take - The Police
Nobody's Diary - Yazoo
The Weakness in Me - Joan Armatrading
Underworld - Born Slippy - This ones makes me high, I jump round like a loony!
Insomnia - Faithless
Fast Car - Tracy Chapman
Mary - Dido
When I'm Gone - Eminem
Oh I could go on and on and on and on .......
Currently listening to Joan Armatrading.
I think Joe Satriani could grow on me!!! I love guitar. Who played parisian walkways? Absolutely adore the guitar solo in that song.
Oooh ooh, Coldplay - which is the song with "when September comes" in the lyrics. They played that at my son's leaving service (when he left junior school) - oh boy I still sob whenever I hear it!
Ok, folks I promise I'll shush for a bit now :-()
