DJ Dr and I corresponded about these next two artists this week. He alerted me to this really cool live track where they play together. Well worth 5 minutes of your time.
Howard Jones & Nik Kershaw - Wouldn't It Be Good - http://youtu.be/amD2G9Kuu10
Howard and Nik took me back to the 80's. I remember the Thompson Twins, Corey Hart and then this gem popped into my mind. I'm sure it wouldn't get an airing these days.
Mel Brooks - To Be Or Not To Be - http://youtu.be/StZOwuy9mEg
Whats' that? You want more 80's? Well you have to remember that I was a teenage metal head but some other music did seep into my consciousness now and then, more than I care to admit.
This was a great track...
Thompson Twins - Doctor Doctor - http://youtu.be/APyl6Cnbfzw
And just in case you think I've gone soft...
Manowar - Carry On - http://youtu.be/MECsRsu16es
In one of my news feeds today was the headline, "Clapton's favourite guitar solo". I was interested so I clicked the link. It turns out that "God" likes listening to this one. Not bad, not bad at all!
Wilson Pickett (with Duane Allman) - Hey Jude - http://youtu.be/0y8Q2PATVyI
I find it far too hard to pick a single guitar solo that I'd call my favourite but this one's up there in my list.
Eric Clapton - Layla (acoustic) - http://youtu.be/1Y9T15kAF8U
That's enough for one week. Some "Desert Island Discs" next time.
