Sunday – (Song Lyric Sunday)

Sunday is the opening track to Heathen, which marked the return of producer Tony Visconti, who’d co-produced many of Bowie’s classic albums in the 1970s. Visconti recalled to Uncut magazine June 2008 about […]

Get To This – (Song Lyric Sunday)

Twas a toss up between this and Bowie’s Five Years. Whilst a massive fan, I really couldn’t face the depressive story. So we have instead, this upbeat, jolly, little song […]

True Colors – (Song Lyric Sunday)

Golden Years – (Song Lyric Sunday)

Love You Till Tuesday – (Song Lyric Sunday)

The critics of Record Retailer, Record Mirror and Melody Maker all praised the single. In a column reviewing recently released singles, Bowie influence Syd Barrett told Melody Maker in May 1967, “Yeah, it’s a joke number. Jokes are good […]

Tragedy & Titters – (Song Lyric Sunday)

Scissor Sisters’ music can be generally described as a mixture of glam rock, disco and alternative music. The band has been compared to ABBA, the Bee Gees, Blondie, KC and the Sunshine Band, Duran Duran. “The […]

Wonderous Stories (Song Lyric Sunday)

I have chosen Wonderous Stories penned by Jon Anderson the lead singer of the 70’s band Yes …. He wrote the 1977 chart success during “a beautiful day” while staying […]

Stop The Clocks – (Song Lyric Sunday)

Written in 2001 by Noel Gallagher, Stop the Clocks, didn’t make it onto any Oasis album, despite their having released a compilation in 2006 with the same name.  It had […]
