I Went...SI--SI--SIRIUS...All The Way Home (again) #51

(a short jaunt)

"Mercy Street" - Peter Gabriel / "So" (1986)

The album was nominated for “Best of the Year” (Lost to "Graceland") but I never owned a copy.  And don't believe I ever listened to "So" in its entirety.  For whatever reason, I mostly lost interest in Peter Gabriel.  And I easily pass on Phil Collins' stuff.  I loved Genesis though...while they were still the golden egg...but then it cracked.  "Mercy Street” is nicely atmospheric and dreamy... and sounds important.  Probably a grower and an album I should give a fair shake.  This was Gabe's fifth album. (NEED)

"Hard Lovin' Loser" - Judy Collins / "In My Life" (1966)

You'll find no hints of “Send In The Clowns" with this song, my babies.  Judy's not sad this time.  Here, Judy is having fun and getting down with her bad self.  And daddy likey.  This was already Judy Collins' sixth album. (NEED)

"Need Your Loving Tonight" - Queen / "The Game" (1980)

Probably one of the lesser-played 'hits' from Queen.  Catchy, catchy shit.  And much better than the abominable "Crazy Little Thing...” in my book.  John Deacon was on a roll.  Queen's eighth album and the only one to ever reach #1 in the US. (OWN)


Good stuff.
