I am really tired today after staying up to watch A Clockwork Orange yet again. This isn't it at all :)

Heard this on planet rock the other day and can't get it out of my head. Prefer it to the original I think.

Disturbed have an off-the-wall cover like this on all their albums. All are ace too. :)

I joined Amazon Prime recently when they knocked £20 off the price for a year. This was the weekend before my internet fibre connection was supposed to happen, but that was put back a few weeks.

When I first got into computing in 1981, with a ZX81 funny enough, I used to play records in my bedroom constantly (I was 16). Certain songs and albums instantly pull me back to that time and even the way that I felt in those days and who I was going out with. Music is so powerful.

I have been browsing through lots of stuff on Amazon Prime Music and came across some albums I used to play over and over again. One of these is Tusk by Fleetwood Mac. It wasn't cool to be a FM fan in those days at my age and it probably isn't any cooler now. They aren't a TOTP type band, they would be more like Jools Holland type stuff in today's terms. Anyway I have been having a blast today listening to this on headphones while I work. I don't know which track I like the most. There are a few I don't like on this album but not many. Might as well start with this one.

Do you guys have any albums that pull you back to your past? I don't mean a recollection of something you used to like a lot until the next thing came along. I mean something that has become a part of you even if you don't realise that it has. Something that brings back strong associations with people, places, feelings and all that bollox.

EDIT: still listening to this lol. I can't believe that I still remember every word, every note, riff and drum beat. Scary. I don't understand most of it but who cares :noidea:. I like the ballady ones the best, eg Walk a Thin Line https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KlumjcOg9k#t=61m27s

From the movie Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. First bit sounds like it comes from Thomas Was Alone.

Loved Underworld at Glastonbury this year. BBC had excellent coverage. But the highlight for me was Coldplay letting Viola Beach headline the festival. Can't find the whole thing on YouTube I think posts are being removed for copyright violation so this one will probably get pulled too. Quite moving and a superb tribute. :sob: EDIT - Pretty good copy available for now that shows the whole song and intro. Still makes me feel very sad for the young lads :(





None on YouTube for Underworld but this was them from 1998.

I always listen to the Vitamin String Quartet in bed. I used to listen to various classical music playlists in Spotify, but I can't stand a lot of piano music so whenever anything with pianos used to come on it'd ruin my peaceful attempts at slumber.
