Thanks Gran.

I appreciate my taste isn’t everyone’s, but then it takes all sorts and all that.

I prefer to add something, instead of just layers of YouTube videos. The narrative hopefully sparks remark or debate..

Indeed, though praise from the fans of the original version, like myself, would be as high a compliment.

Cover versions are a dubious tribute to the original and there are probably those that shouldn’t have made it beyond the recording studio doors..1980’s aficionados would argue this is one of them..

.. though not in my humble opinion..


Forgive my ignorance.
I'm confused.

This is a cover version?

Yes.

Tears for Fears originally recorded the track in 1982... ish

This is a better version, albeit a cover..

Duh me: brainfreeze.
Of course they did.

(I love the Gary Jules version ... it's a favourite song of mine, albeit (beautifully) melancholic).

I love U2’s old stuff.. pre Joshua Tree... then Bono (did you know, Bono is Latin for Good) went a bit weird, saving whales and hugging trees, not to mention the dodgy sunglasses..

Reminiscing..

My next piece contains one of my all-time favourite lines of any song..

“I’m pushing an elephant up the stairs “

Written for the film Man on the Moon, R.E.M released this track as a single, reaching number 3 in the UK charts..


Excellent..

awwhhh, me and Diane (bless her xx) used to have a private silly joke with the elephant up the stairs lyrics [giggle.gif] [giggle.gif]
