Time for another Nirvana hit. I think the most distinctive thing about this song is the base riff. Nirvana always remind me of my early days in Manchester all the way back in the ’90s. In those days I was leading the pre-teenager group at my local church called Pathfinders. Once a year we would […]
This song get’s my vote for its musical and lyrical intensity. A very moving song about a very sad subject of the permanent breakdown of a father and son’s relationship laced with permanent unforgiveness on the part of the father.

Kurt Cobain another entertainer who didn’t make it
Another masterpiece by REM. I love the lines “Oh no I said too much, I haven’t said enough.” Yes there is something very true about these lines, especially in boy/girl relationships. Very strange video clip though with some interesting dancing by Michael Stipe. ????
