Somebody help. This is one persistent earworm. Quick! Find me another one before I write up my own list of regrets. I already know that #9 would be that I never learned how to play the synth.

Before you go, tell me, doesn’t this sound a bit like Any Colour You Like?


Pink Floyd – Speak to Me/Breathe

I was out today and I saw a poster for Easy Star All-Stars’ live at Fuzz Club. They’ll be playing on my birthday! Wouldn’t it be nice if I could go? But who would ever go there with me? }:{

Coming in earthly contact with that poster brought Dark Side Of The Moon rushing to my head, something not all that uncommon. There I was, standing in a packed tram, quietly singing Time, Money, Brain Damage, Eclipse…

…and Breathe. One of my favourite songs hands down. But it’s a bit redundant picking out just one of the tracks off DSOTM. It’s like having to pick out a single scene off Star Wars. Or Spaced. Or Lola Rennt. The lyrics, oh the lyrics take me, and have always taken me, places. This is beauty.

Dedicated to… oh! You know who you are. 🙂

Breathe, breathe in the air
Don’t be afraid to care
Leave but don’t leave me
Look around and chose your own ground
For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be
Run, run rabbit run
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don’t sit down it’s time to dig another one
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.
