With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

I really can’t bear John Lennon’s “Imagine” although I am a big fan of much of what Lennon has recorded solo and with the Beatles. I believe this dislike of “Imagine” puts me in a minority so I was very pleased to come across someone else who doesn’t like it. None other than the brilliant John Cooper-Clarke.

He says ‘I regret ever hearing it in the first place. It’s nausea-inducing. The shallow sentimentality of it is ghastly. When I heard it I thought, maybe he’s just never been any good’. He goes on ‘I love the Beatles and John is one of the great voices, so it’s tragic that he should put his name to such drivel. The fact that it’s Britain’s number one song is suicide-inducing’

Very well said in my opinion Mr Cooper-Clarke. How many you agree or disagree or don’t really give a crap about it?

What do you think of Olivia Newton-John‘s “Physical“? For me it was one of the tracks that perhaps summed up the 1980’s and I’m still not sure whether I like the song or not. That 80s gym fashion in the video looks so dated now. But despite that the song was voted the sexiest song of all time in a Billboard poll in 2012. Really?

OLIVIA NEWTON JOHN ROD STEWART

The song was written by Steve Kipner and did you know that it was originally offered to Rod Stewart? Presumably because of its similarities to Rod’s awful (in my opinion) “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy“. My personal choices for sexiest song ever would be Marvin Gaye’sLet’s Get It On” and “Juicy Fruit” from Mtume. What is the sexiest song for you?

“Do you gaze at your bald head and wish you had hair” January 8, 2015

This is my first post of 2015 and it will be quite a short one. I would like to celebrate the birthdays of two music icons who were born twelve years apart and who both had many hits on the RCA label. So happy birthday to David Bowie who is 68 today and Elvis Presley would have been 80 years old today. Feel free to enjoy a few tunes from these amazingly talented people.
