There was not a hope in your English hearts

Well, we almost made it two pages.

I knew it would be you. All signs pointed to Hoy, but I knew it would be you.

Certainly crossed my mind. I only had time for one post today and went for the CR is better than RP post that no one responded to.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

CR is better than RP, only certifiable lunatics think otherwise. A compromise would be adding Kill Time and Beautiful People to the running order and using the long mix of Inoculated City. That would do me.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I think the whole song is sublime, but the "I see friends shaking hands, saying how do you do" part of Wonderful World.

Truly sublime.

I was born with the gift of a golden voice."

I've long been a huge fan of The Church. They have so many great songs - but this one is incredibly sublime - from start to finish. Marty Willson-Piper's rich, 12 string acoustic, Peter Koppes emotive, textured electric, Kilbey's melodic bass line, Ploog's understated drumming...and topped with Kilbey's cooly detached croon.

Song is also perfect during the party seen at the end of Donnie Darko - just a perfect match of music, mood, and imagery. I was a little bummed when they released the director's cut and some of the music was swapped around. Under the Milky Way was replaced with Echo's The Killing Moon (another damned near perfect song)...but I prefer the original scene.

...and if you've never seen Donnie Darko...all I can say is watch it now! ;)

Both Muppet Hi-fi and Me are fans. My faves "When You Were Mine" and their cover of Alex Harvey's "Faith Healer"
are awesome.

"In the intro to Everything Counts by Depeche Mode, you can hear a quiet rendition of the song's melody. Gives me chills," said JennyB, the only DM fanatic on IMCT (except for maybe Rattie).

Also, when Bowie sings the whole "Don't Fake it Baby" verse in Moonage Daydream, it just does something to me.
Got a Rake? Sure!

I rep harder for Modern Love than anyone I know, but I think it has several sublime moments. Including
"I know when to stay in"
"But I try... I try"
And the echoing backing vocals through the choruses.
'But also: hey dude, you can just go looking for more glasses. They're all free now. '
