I´m so sad by the passing of Belchior. One of the greatest on the 70´s MPB scene in Brazil. He became well kwown when Elis Regina recorded two of his songs on Falso Brilhante ("Como Nossos Pais" and "Roupa Velha Colorida"). RIP Belchior.

Looks like the early 90's were my highwater mark: I got a dance show dedicated to me, for steadfast support. All downhill from there

Hey Andy:
The lyrics to Brian Eno's song The True Wheel>>>three band names. A Certain Ratio, The Modern Lovers, and 801. Although I think Jonathan Richman used the name Modern Lovers before Eno wrote this tune.

Heya Joe and Surfactants. I've heard a lot of Bee Gees and covers this weekend, from Nina Simone to Percy Sledge. Now Dolly Parton ... Hopefully, Barry is still alive.
