Tony Hadley fronted Spandau Ballet.

Just don't confuse the Mott's AM with the Mott's PM!

Is the soundtrack from the new Mary Poppins movie out yet? Which DJ has dibs on it?

Avatar 4:18pm BerkeleyGuy:

It does sound like a Move song

But ALSO sounded like ELO

this always cracks me up.
  4:24pm jan:

Irwin, A few weeks ago I did some caulking with SILICONE and somehow that song came into my head and did not leave. I'm afraid that's going to happen unless something more catchy is played afterwards.
Avatar 4:24pm Fredericks:

*of* Pardon my typo, this song has me all gummed up.
Avatar 4:24pm geezerette:

o<(:c3} Ho-Ho-Ho !

Silly-cone! It's what's for breakfast!
  4:24pm Laura L:

Thank you, Irwin--and y'all remember there's a great big book about industrials: Everything's Coming Up Profits, by the great Steve Young and Sport Murphy.

Laura L: is a genius.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Irwin:

Laura, who wrote this? Hank Beebe?
Avatar 4:28pm AnAnonymousParty:

My company can't afford a big professional orchestra, singers and writers to create a fancy musical number like this. Irwin, how much would it cost us for your group to set one of our white papers on battlefield network interoperability to music?
  4:28pm judy from croton:

Need some boobs?think silicone!
  4:29pm Laura L:

Yes--Hank Beebe and Bill Heyer, 1973.

Is Russell using the Lydian scale?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm Irwin:

I think he invented it, no?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm PMD:

Love the illustration
Avatar 4:53pm Fredericks:

Oh. So yes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm Irwin:

Don't know how to explain, hear, or even detect the Lydian scale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm dale:

loved yaphet koto turning into blimp in this bond film
Avatar 4:58pm Fredericks:

Sounded right to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'Russell codified the modal approach to harmony ... inspired by a casual remark the eighteen-year-old Miles Davis made to him in 1944: Miles said he wanted to learn all the changes and I reasoned he might try to find the closest scale for every chord ... Davis popularized those liberating ideas in recordings like Kind of Blue, undermining the entire harmonic foundation of bop that had inspired him and Russell in the first place'...
Avatar 5:07pm Fredericks:

I just read this and decided to share it: "Bobbie Gentry was attacked on both ends by male songwriters."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

See for instance Howard Goodall making outlandish claims about the Beatles:
- & in the process educating me about which of their tunes are Modal like old UK Folk music...

Irwin, Popeye's is now offering "Emotional Support Chicken" in a chicken-shaped carrier box over the holidays at Terminal C of Philadelphia International Airport. Somehow I thought you should be aware of this.

WOW! Irwin, you're blowing my mind! I've been listening/watching Harlan Ellison interviews, on the Tomorrow Show w/ Tom Synder and others, in the last few days! I love Harlan Ellison; huge fan, of the man and his writings since i was 12. I miss him every day. THANK YOU for this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

An a-hole...but he's right.
  5:36pm bnowb:

Pay the Writer by Harlan Ellison is amazing. Ty great to hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Paying millions for everything but a Writer is why Movies & everything sucks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Irwin:

They do the same thing with music. Big budget, nothing left for music, expect publishers to offer deep discounts or free.
Avatar 5:39pm Jack:

I've been dying to see "Dreams With Sharp Teeth". You know "Frank Sinatra has a cold" by Gay Talese, yes?

Jack, "Dreams..." is very good.

Gail's use of flatted first, fifths and fourths is quite unusual.
