Unconsoled

Bit of an update, then. Yesterday addedentry and I went to see VHS or Beta at the Portland Arms. He's done the proper review, but I still want to talk about it a bit, because it was a fantastic gig. Collapse )

Spending an evening in a tiny room full of cigarette smoke might not have been the best idea given how I've been feeling lately, but oh, I'm tired of the being ill. Collapse )

Paul Brady's "The Road to the Promised Land" came up on my party shuffle (that's the closest I get to dancing, ho ho) a while ago, and I suddenly had a nerdy boyish urge to compile a list of top ten songs with piano introductions. I'm not even sure if that one would be on it, really, but Bruce Hornsby's "The Way it Is" would be right up there, and Joni Mitchell's "Blue", and Radiohead's "Everything in its Right Place", and Tori Amos's "Winter", though all of hers are piano songs really. Okay, it's not Top Ten, really, more top-of-the-head. ... The Piano Man reminds me of Kazuo Ishiguro's "The Unconsoled", which I never finished, though I didn't get the impression it was really going to have an ending anyway. Maybe the real life story will have more of an ending, but they don't tend to, do they?
