You're Joking, Right?

No I'm not and you can blame a certain resident of Leeds for this post.

My first idea was to post this on the other blog but then I asked myself, should such a song be posted where, lets face it even less people than visit here go to?

No,  I said to myself I like it and I'm going to post it where at least thirty people can find it.

So here's to Paris and old Beaujolais wine.

Gary Moore - Parisienne Walkways

I saw Gary Moore back in 1983 at the Glasgow Apollo and I was blown away with the sounds he got out his guitar.

I'll be willing to put money on this being either your least popular post or by far and away the biggest spike in visits and downloads you have ever seen. I've posted all sorts of stuff, the things I've thought were 'can I really post that? Is that a little too over there even for me. Oh Fuck it lets do it' those ones are the ones that get most attention. Very odd.

Hoping I haven’t misunderstood your post: for what it's worth, my opinion is that the musical taste of a person is defined more by what it considers uncool but likes nonetheless rather than what he appreciates along with other millions of people. Plus, I speak only for myself, but I follow you and the rest of the gang not for being reassured about the fact that I have similar taste (and thoughts) as yours, but for the chance to be taken by surprise by things that I never would have listened to and ideas different than my own.
Post whatever you like, I’ll be here with ears and mind as open as I can.

This is a terrible track. I was hoping you'd post Ballroom Blitz, in honour of Nicky Chinn's 68th birthday today.

Well - I'm with Luca.
But I love Chinn&Chapman stuff too.

I could write me paragraphs.
And RIP Gary Moore as well

Phil Lynott was born that year, so one must assume he is singing 'in character' for I fear he would have been rather too young to remember Paris in '49, the Champs Elysee and old Beaujolais wine. Which is a young wine, in any case.

PS: I like it this, always have.
