Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism, another long weekend beckons. Have fun whatever you’re up to. It’s been a busy few weeks and I’m knackered, so I’m going to please myself. That starts now, with a banger of a tune from one of the greatest bands that ever came together.

As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below –


  1. Anything by Skynerd is worth hearing, but Mahons is gonna be upset…. ;(

  2. here ya go Pete another good one… the needle and the spoon


  3. Such a good band. Everything they recorded was quality. Not one bad song.

  4. I liked them

    here’s good one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCfWmNJt4D4

  5. Vivaldi’s Gloria:


  6. Laura Branigan’s Gloria 😉


  7. The late Laura

  8. Good catch Colm, I’d forgotten about her.

  9. Yes she died young. Only 45. Had two main hits , Gloria and Self Control, but both great songs.

  10. Excellent choice Peter and Colm.

    I’ve been listening to a lot of classical this week.
    Here’s one of my particular favourites:


  11. Good choice Dave. Here is JS Bach Branderburg 3 3, mathematically perfect.

    I play it in my head at least once a week:


  12. Shostakovich piano concerto number 2, adagio. Enjoy:


  13. I don’t have any sounds to share, but (if it’s allowed) some written words – I’ve been re-reading two books that have been on my shelf for a while: Henri Charriere’s autobiogs ‘Papillon’ and ‘Banco’.
    I don’t know how to describe or relate what it means to me, just something very…deep. I’d already read them before so I set them down in my bathroom next the loo, as “throne” reading (it’s a man thing). Every day these last few weeks I’ve picked up a chapter at random and have been utterly amazed at how I identify with it. Not so much with the actual subject matter at hand (he was a French criminal/prisoner) but with his motivations, the stuff in his head, the suffering he had to overcome, and his utter lust for life. There’s not much of human life that isn’t in those books. Hunt them down on ebay or whatever, read and look into a mirror.

  14. Enjoy this, Mahler symphony number five, slow movement. Also pictures of Mahler and his bueautifil wife Alma. This was the music used in the film Death in Venice:


  15. very nice

  16. More excellent choices Peter. Cheers.

  17. Music threads are open threads brexitannia

  18. How can you not like a band that named themselves after their high school gym teacher?

  19. tell us Mahons…. how?
