Fantastic scientific construct. Bad OMD song. Discuss
i think thats the main thrust of my arguement.
The verse has its merits.
Its not THAT bad, its better than Talking Loud & Clear and that one thats almost exactly the same non-song that I can't remember the name of.
Locomotion, thats the one.
and a Silverlink train I saw this morning was named after said scientist.
I should have this conversation with myself really, shouldn't I?
weeks ago to continue the theme running through our current recording sessions of trying to get a sci-fi esque reference into everything.
I was thinking of forming an off shoot girl group called that!
That album - Junk Culture is terrible - its no Arhetricture & Morality is it?
you were going to call a girl band Tesla Girls? That'd work. Only if Peter Saville agreed to do the artwork though.
is my favourite Dazzle Ships song. Is that bad? Its a poor man's Radioactivity though it does feature the Romance of the Telescope which is, as we all know, a beautiful song title.
I have two ace project ideas but only one can be named after OMD songs
I was thinking about my favourite OMD songs last night, now I've been left home alone I have ittle to entertain me, and I think I decided that This Is Helena, Stanlow and So In Love were my favourites.
We are the coolest.
I think Maid Of Orleans has to be the best off the wall pop song ever and Messages though obvious is still fantastic. First song on 'Morality' is ace as well
I note that they are touring again - do you think it would be sad to watch them?
I mean you've got 5 years on me, I'm not quite sure if that means you might have caught the dregs first time round! But yes, it would be sad, and yes, I think i'm going.
Why have one song about Joan of Arc when you can have two on the same album and next to each other? I forgot about Souvenir. Maybe because I struggle to spell it.
Joan of Arc is also mentioned in a single off Crush I think? I'd join OMD if they asked me too.
Haven't seen them as when I was 'of age' it was duruing the Sailing the Seven Seas of Love phase. Oh dear.
A very important group up to 1983 and very underrated.
we worship them as gods.
Sailing On The Seven Seas, i still can't decide if its complete toss as a song, or an acceptable guilty pleasure from their otherwise hellish latter period.
or when Paul Humphries decided it was all wrong. A fantastic band and one of my many 'not meant to like but I don't care what you say, trendy E1/E2 media and by the way keep your ironic hands off' bands
their first 3-4 albums are/should be considered synth-pop classics.
nopt their best though.
i think my favourite is enola gay. although it makes me sad.
has anyone heard the vs sash version of that song? it's grand
is king of synth riffs. Its also atom-bomb reference tastic. Hooray for Sophia.
great middle 8 - also 'All The Things We Said' - is 'up there'
my first ever band was a keyboard duo and we used to do Enola Gay and I was 'blown away' when my fellow band member showed my how to play it. We werwe called Remainder 2
For the record we used to do Neon Lights by Kraftwerk, In The Night by the Pet Shop Boys and Dreaming of Me by Depeche Mode. We were 15 after all. Far more fun than being in the faculty. PROLEFACT2
we played I Love To Hate You by Erasure, and once, only once, we played it live. I think we played Together In Electric Dreams once as well, but i was so drunk I think I may have murdered my own Phil Oakey impression.
yand yeah, hence the sadness when i listen to it.
oddly, this is the line that really gets me 'it's 8.15 and thats the time that its always been'
jesus that was bland of me.
I think it is the arrowhead of great synth songs - but only just.
Enjoy The Silence.
Last week I filled 2 spare minutes of DJ set with the extended intro to Suburbia by the Pet Shop Boys. Let that be a lesson to you.
A suicidegirls.com clone site where instead of goth/emo-ness the ladies are themed around electricity.
Here's AC; look at her lovely pink outfit and short skirt, now reduced to little more than burned tatters since more than twenty thousand kW were passed through her body.
Here's frisky Proton frolicking in the pool; what happens when we remove the cable sheath covering the connection to this substation and cheekliy daub it in the shallow end? Uh oh!
