When I first heard this song on the radio I couldn't get it out of my head.

But, stupidly, I was too busy repeating it over and over in my head to bother listening for the artist and the name of the song. So it drove me nuts for ages trying to track down the song and album.

When I heard it again, it distracted me enough to miss the name of the song, but not the artist. It was the late (well not at the time), great Elliott Smith.

So I high tailed it down to the local music store to get the album. The only album of ES they had was his recently released Figure 8.

It turns out that the song I had stuck in my head wasn't on the album. But I wasn't disappointed as Figure 8 is a brilliant album and remains one of my favourite.

I later tracked down the name of the elusive song, Waltz #2. Enjoy.

And for good measure here's a song from Figure 8.

Please excuse the long post but I had to get this off my chest.

It frustrates the hell out of me that there's so much good music out there and never enough free space on my MP3 player to put it.

I guess a decent sized ipod classic might help the cause, but itunes gets my goat and apple is turning out to be just as big of a bully and megalomaniac as microsoft (In my opinion).

But as they say in the movies "Necessity is the mother of invention"

I've had that song, mostly the riff, stuck in my head for days now and I'm still enjoying it.

Reminds me a lot of this song.

The influence of John Lennon stands out in this track - though maybe that's just me .

Kasabian are genuinely unreal. Finally getting to see them in Jan.

Same week the future Mrs. and I are singing Laura Marling, she's also brilliant.

Maybe it's being on leave for a few weeks, but I've been listening to a lot of old jazz and the like of late. Stuff like Dave Brubeck, Sinatra, Nina Simone, Bing Crosby, Dexter Gordon even the High Society soundtrack. But it doesn't really fit in with the rock vibe in the thread.

On reflection however I'm reminded that it's a new year, resolutions and all that stuff. And invariably when resolutions are mentioned I think of turning over a new leaf, getting healthy and all that crap. I may have to give a fair old crack this year as I'm in line to be a groomsman and I don't want to be the fat one out.

Anyway, when it comes to exercise music Korn seem to do it for me every time. Their Greatest Hits Vol. 1 is one hellova collection of songs, get's me pumped, motivated and angry enough that I seem to forget about pain and push through.

Edit: Crap. I just started listening to the album and I should have posted the song Right Now. The clip is a bit on the gross side but it's a pretty bloody good song.

if anyone's interested. Edited by Jack Jack

Funny you should mention jazz because I like a fair bit of it as well . And I'm sure there are others here that do as well .

Tell you what , if you start a jazz thread I will contribute whenever I can . Most of it would be on youtube or the like . Maybe the songs will just have still shots - but that's quite ok .

Some of my favourite artists include George Duke , Nils , Jeff Golub , Acoustic Alchemy , Ronny Jordan , Chuck Loeb , David Benoit and various saxophonists .

Most of the jazz I like is a bit uptempo but it's somehow described as downtempo - I don't get that , but let's face it , how do you describe jazz?

Cheers and btw Korn are good .

This retro(ish) sounding track has been the no.1 rock song in the US for a number of weeks now . And it is 'The Black Keys' official video of 'Lonely Boy'.

Have we had any Zeppelin yet?

I was listening to my favourite album of theirs a few nights ago, Led Zeppelin III. I don't think there was an official music video released, not sure why, but it's a fricken unbelievable song.

This track has really grown on me after a number of listens .

I think what I like most about this song is how this band have matured and perhaps brought out their best song ?

I don't mean that in any disparaging way as they're pretty damn good ! .

Jason Reeves writes the sort of mellow, semi-depressing tunes I can listen to as background music all day while I try to contain my rage at work. Anything with a harder edge is too dangerous.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z
