    My favourite Pop album is Little Creatures by Talking Heads – I suspect David Byrne is a bit of a mystery… I think he was rather ironic.

    Anyway, here’s a little Pop ‘mash-up’

    “WOMEN WHO HAVE MADE MISTAKES
    ARE A LITTLE AFRAID
    THEY DON’T LIKE TAKING CHANCES
    SHE WILL PLAY THE WAIT… http://tinyurl.com/ya5xg99

    Oh oh oh what’s love got to do
    Got to do with it?
    What’s love but a second-hand emotion?
    What’s love got to do
    Got to do with it?
    Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?”

    SHE’S NEVER IMPRESSED BY THE MANLY ADVANCES

    “I KNOW I’VE JUST MET YOU
    MAYBE I SHOULD KNOW BETTER
    BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME THAT WAY”

    “It’s physical
    Only logical
    You must try to ignore
    That it means more than that”

    etc etc

    written by men, of course… they probably thought it would enhance their pulling power, huh, as if!

    By the way Gavin, just paying the forum a quick visit, as I do occasionally (it’s excellent, of course). I notice your link to Brothers and Arms… funnily enough that’s my favourite 80’s album (I don’t really consider it a ‘Pop’ album as such). The Man’s Too Strong, great stuff.

    I shouldn’t say too much as the link to this topic is so tenuous (and surely not what TD would be too keen on).

    I saw Dire Straits in the 90’s and Knopfler with Emmy Lou Harris in 2006 – Speedway At Nazareth live – he’s matured as a guitarist so well.

    anyway, just to get a bit more on topic


    Mark should have said “Sorry folks, Theodore Dalrymple doesn’t approve, goodnight” ; )
