I was having a hard time with picking a ‘D’ here…I mean, David Bowie was my first husband, so of course, loyalties should go there. But I also love Depeche Mode, and Dire Straits have always been a huge favorite. What’s a girl to do? So I was toying with the idea of blowing them all off, and putting up David and David’s Welcome to the Boomtown. Went searching for “David and David” on YouTube, and came across this live duet of David Bowie and David Gilmour performing Comfortably Numb at the Royal Albert Hall, and I couldn’t pass it up. The Wall was such an amazing, amazing album, and I remember going to a late night double feature with the film version, doubled up with Fast Times at Ridgemont High, which seems odd except that The Wall pretty much had the audience of teenagers curled up in our seats, looking for a quiet way to go open a vain or something. I think it was almost half way through Fast Times before we unclenched enough to smile, and by the end, we were no longer suicidal. So good job, midnight movie people.
I’ve noticed that since I added the Groove Shark buttons to my blog, the page has been loading a LOT more slowly than it used to. At least on some computers. So instead of adding buttons here, I’m going to add links to songs, so you can go there and listen to the songs if you want to. Because I’m not sure I want to deprive you of the other excellent selections I would have made. Right? So, here you go, in no particular order:
Never Let Me Down Again ~ Depeche Mode
Welcome to the Boomtown ~ David and David
Romeo and Juliet ~ Dire Straits
Space Oddity ~ David Bowie
Happy ABC Music Monday, everyone!
