: : i agree with you somewhat on the political songs. blinded by rainbows is about the IRA and the "war" in northern ireland.
: Correct..and (from someone who lives there)its a good sentiment too and not a badly written song either (better than the sanctimonious patronizing crap you usually find on that subject) - awful guitar solo though which kinda screws the whole thing up...High wire's a good enough song too IMO
: >the last two songs on b2b are actually brilliant.the only two jazz rock experiments besides miles davis that actually work.
: theyre fabulous songs - especially 'Thief',an amazing smouldering,soulful vocal by Keith
well now i know !! im not the only person on this board who thinks theif in the night is brilliant!! finally!
: >try them again, since i got the impression you havent listened to them much(you dont even know the names of the songs)i also like out of tears and almost hear you sigh besides those 4 songs pretty good list!!
: AHYS is another overlooked classic IMO....good call,Elmo!
i actually hated it first time i heard it....have grown to like it very much.....its just a modern soul song really,which can be mistaken for fluff, but us who know soul and rythm (you know who you are ) can tell the difference.
