Well, obviously there was no post yesterday. Couldn't be helped, jury duty and all.
Thankfully even though I was picked twice in one one week, with two cases in one day, I still came out on top. How you ask?, They fucking settled. People are fucking idiots(except you guys) and I stand by that statement.
Anyhoo, I'm better now, thanks for asking:)
Ok so today's top 5 is all about Mr. Gilbert O'Sullivan.
Who's he you might ask?
He's the guy famous(or infamous) for one of(if not the) depressing hit song ever, "Alone Again(Naturally)"
Yeah, that guy.
But he also has other hits, contrary to popular belief, and here's the top 5 list of the ones I dig very much:
5). "Happiness Is You And Me"
Well it can be;)
Popish? You damn straight, but it's still a decent song, and considering the time period this came out in, on par with his peers/contemporaries.
4). "Get Down"
This one's disco three years before disco even got started. Not a bad one per say, but I won't lie to ya. Only one really white people dance to this one. What, it's the truth! Watch the video and you tell me.
Now Queen's "Get Down, Make Love" on the other hand......
3). "Alone Again(Naturally)"
Of course I gotta include the one he's must famous for. It's a true classic despite making you want to eat a bullet by the end of it. Definitely not something to play for someone on hold on a Suicide Hotline is all I'm saying:)
At first I thought this was a song about a guy dating a much younger chick, until I really started paying attention to the lyrics. That and the little girl's laugh at the end, told me something was up. The whole thing sounded super creepy/pedophilish until I learned he wrote the song about his daughter. Whew! What a relief. It really is a sweet, sweet song though, so go Claire!
1). "What's In A Kiss"
So far this is my favorite of the bunch. It's an interesting and timeless question, plus the man just has a way with words. And who of us doesn't respect that?
Here's a sample of some of the lyrics:
"What's in a kissHave you ever wondered just what it is
More perhaps than just a moment of bliss
Tell me what's in a kiss.
What's in a dream
Is it all the things you'd like to have been
All the places that you haven't yet seen
Tell me what's in a dream."
Is it poppy as hell? Damn straight, 'tis his speciality after all, writing pop songs.
The old bird's even still touring in the UK, and any place that'll let perform I guess.
God bless 'em I say.
And that's me for this week, have a good/great one weekend guys!
