Because Friday night is Music Night

Another week done at the coalface of capitalism in a land where the natives have decided the lockdowns are finished. Have you seen how many people are out? A traffic announcer on the wireless this morning reminded listeners that “essential journeys only” are allowed. I was looking at the traffic jam to get into a garden centre at the time. The slightly warmer weather does it. A slight change in the temperature has Britons flocking to empty their bank accounts for the new season essentials.

So a summery feel to this week’s selection then, because summer will be here and I just like it. It has a groove.

Have fun whatever you’re up to this weekend. Avoid the garden centres. As always, feel free to share your top sounds down below –


  1. the only response that song evokes….


  2. Joe Walsh’s finest 3 minutes, and 3 minutes of the finest American Rock n Roll. I don’t care what anyone says, he never wrote or recorded anything better than this (with a special mention to Jimmy Fox for hitting those drums like it’s revenge)-


  3. This film is much more famous for its soundtrack than as a film. The Trap:


  4. both excellent and Pete where I would agree that’s one of his best…. it is not his best..

    in my view. I would be hard pressed to pick just one.

  5. There is also more than one Joe…. take for instance did you know he wrote this song?


  6. The Sad Cafe is a lovely song and there are layers I love. The first fist verse is mafnificent. But “Walk Away” by James Gang is total balls out, 12 bar Rock n Roll of the first order. It compares with with any Rock n Roll song.

  7. My soul is the blues, my heart is rock n roll, I can sit on my boat and get lost in mozart if I still had my boat, but to me music has always been that special thing that I can only ever appreciate as an outsider a member of the audience. I can’t keep a beat to save my life, I have never been able to master a musical instrument. I don’t own a stereo, cd, or tape player at the moment but I know the words and tones of 10s of 1000s of songs across every genre. To say I’m obsessive about music would be the largest understatement one could make. Every memory in my head is tied to a song. It’s how my brain functions I have a phonographic memory.

    An advantage my life gave me was I got to see 1000s of acts behind the scenes, in their dressing rooms, hotel rooms off stage and on stage. With headliner bands you find two types those that are just bands and those that are business productions that are Bands. I prefer the later and this band was the best at it. Everyone on that stage hates the other person they always have, but turn on the Amps and Lights and you get smooth interlaced brilliance.


  8. and then there is history…..
