Day 461: Night Moves, Bob Seger

This is another classic song from Bob Seger capturing the waywardness of love when one is a teenage twenty something or other.

Day 356: If you leave me now, Chicago

Time for a soppy love song. This song is pretty and dominated the airwaves when it was first released in 1976. It reminds me very much of the Max Merritt classic Slipping Away which I have already cited on Covid Island Discs.

Day 259: Rockaria, Electric Light Orchestra

A great song by ELO which really shows their full synthesis of rock with classical music. Sadly the sound quality of this official video is surprisingly poor but I guess this is because it was made in 1976.

Day 142: The Eve of War, War of the Worlds, Jeff Wayne

Now this is a cool find on Youtube. The “Eve of War” from “War of the Worlds” being performed live. Another incredible piece of music. Hmm, I don’t think those women are playing Stradivarius violins however given these babies have no bodies (the violins I mean not the women).
