/ Nostalgic songs?
I just heard Pink Floyds Comfortably Numb for the first time in ages.
Took me back to being a youngster and my dad having it blasting in the car when he was ferrying me around to football matches on a Saturday morning.
That guitar solo is something else!
Ça plane pour moi.
Heard it on YouTube a few days ago, suddenly took me back to 1979/80
I listened to Massive Attack's Unfinished Symphony recently for the first time in ages. Still one of those tracks that makes me feel happy and sad at the same time.
Check out David Gilmour playing Comfortably Numb Live at Pompeii 2016 - on YouTube, if you haven't seen that. Still playing as well as ever.
Lindisfarne's Meet Me On The Corner is one of those nostalgia songs for me, a soundtrack to part of my childhood. I don't think my parents ever thought what it might be about; if they had, perhaps it wouldn't have been quite so well aired.
An absolute belter!
John, just watched it. Incredible stuff!
They don't make music like that anymore.
Been in love with that voice since the first night I heard it (as a moody teenager listening to John Peel).
Any time I hear Bryan Ferry or Roxy Music it takes me back to having to suffer listening to those horrid warbly vocals thanks to my mother's enduring fandom.
Absolute 80's on DAB does often take me back to my days as a kid playing in the garden with Radio 1 on playing all the hits of the day (back when it was actually worth listening to-both in terms of presenters and music!)
Couldn’t agree more, I was trying to attach a link to Meet on the ledge by the mighty Fairport, but the crap WiFi on this oil rig won’t let me, so you’ll have to sing it to yourself
When I was 16 I bought an LP called Gutbucket, I remember we had recently purchased a Decca record player at home and this seemed a pretty cool LP to buy, for a very innocent 16 year old (1969). It had a picture of a pig on the cover + some band names I recognised, must have music.
On it was this track by Hapshash and the coloured coat, it absolutely blew me away, I remember waiting for mum to go out shopping and playing it over and over again, sitting in the kitchen with the Decca record player turned up way passed 11. Rock and Roll.
I still have the LP, very worn.
This time last week...
( ok Saturday, but you get the gist)
Too many friends.... blown off this mountain
A climbers song...
I've just spent the evening creating a playlist to burn onto CD for a family road trip (a bit of a family tradition) and I've spent a good while wallowing in 80's and 90's songs I grew up with.
Two standouts: Inspiral Carpets - this is how it feels to be lonely and Josh Winks - Higher state of consciousness.
Incredible String Band - choice of October Song (might prefer Corries version), The Half-Remarkable Question or The Circle is Unbroken. Was introduced to ISB songs by a couple singing in the Nags Head in Edale on my first camping/climbing trip with the Poly climbing club in 1969 (bloody hell, 50 years ago!)
Mountaineering Scotland has called for action to be taken against the growing issue of 'dirty camping', which sees irresponsible campers leaving rubbish, fire damage, toilet waste and even tents in their wake.
