Love this Rhythm of the Rain (couldn't have told you it was the Cascades even with a gun to my head, though).
Avatar Fri. 1/20/17 3:50pm Polycarp55:

Maybe the Pet Shop Boys. Remind me of a time in bullet and riot infested Jerusalem, where it was 3 am. I was returning from a night out at the Arizona Bar. And another dance club, next to that Sapporo Pizza (the one was bombed by terrorists well after our visit.) I was making global plans with four other guys. One from England, One From Australia, and one from the Netherlands. Even though there was tension in the air, from social unrest, you could also feel the sparks of a creative revolution.

this song always plays in my head when it rains
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/20/17 3:50pm doctorjazz:

actually, was that the original version of Rhythm of the Rain?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 1/20/17 3:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I think I'll add a syrupy "Make America great again" when I answer the phone. This will assuredly lead to fewer phone calls.

Avatar Fri. 1/20/17 4:04pm cosmic matrix:

I liked the music better than the vocals
  Fri. 1/20/17 4:06pm Dean:

Shame both that listener and the DJ disliked that pop song so much. I never here people complaining about Dylan or Lou Reed's obviously affected voice.

I like the MUNA song! And this is not my type of music..made me feel a little better on an awful day in America.

Avatar Fri. 1/20/17 4:17pm djsheilab:

@Dean I love that song, which is why I played it. But vocal affectations in both women + men bother me. Hence my bringing it up. I've been publicly critical of people fawning over Dylan + Jagger's voices and criticizing voices like Brigitte Bardot's, FYI.

Good stuff, loving it. @djsheilab, I'm learning the tough endless struggle you had of trying to find Jacqueline Taieb's "7 Heures Du Matin", thought I found gold at a record swap I recently went to but it was just an empty somewhat scruffy looking sleeve the owner wanted $45 bucks for :/

If you need a chuckle, the midday BBC news radio report on today's event was pretty great. Especially when the Canadian defense minister got asked on what he thinks Trump would think on Trudeau and he kinda gives a cop out answer because it's too obvious how he really felt and wanted to say.

I recently read an article by a Lyme Disease doctor, and she said persistent Lyme Disease is disbelieved by many doctors and the people in patients' lives, who doubt the severity of the illness. She's seen many marriages dissolve over the issue, and many patients in a state of PTSD over trying to prove to others that they are ill. Just having someone BELIEVE that you are sick is a huge deal.

I never war a disco sucks t-shirt but consider that disco came out along with punk. Punk to us kids felt raw and real as opposed to disco which always felt manufactured for a demanding market. Consider "Grease" added to the movie version. Pure post saturday night fever money grab and totally wrong for a period musical.

@Fox, I know Kathleen Henna of Bikini Kill fame was diagnosed super late with late stage Lyme's Disease because a lot of doctors were unsure exactly what was wrong with her until well after the fact when a lot of damage was done. I know she's recovered now but it's pretty terrifying going so long with not knowing what is causing you a lot of pain.

@Slick - Even if you DO know you've got Lyme it's a rough time. I've got some genetic health issues, and got Lyme Disease on top of that. I caught it within a few months, but I've got chronic migraines now, cognitive decline, and body pains. Seven years later I am still on anti-biotics, because without them, I get one long unrelenting headache.

The moral of the story is: Don't go outside. Not ever.
