As re-masters of David’s first two solo albums have been out for a week now – in Europe, at least – I thought we’d have a Favourite Solo Lyric and Why entry today (as a belated birthday-cum-get well treat for Erin).
Only lyrics from David’s first two solo albums, please. We did this for ‘On An Island’ lyrics as recently as 19 May, so let’s not have the repetition.
Can we also cut back on the really, really, really long posts? We’ve set in place a character limit now that the concert reviews are (almost) all in. It shouldn’t have much of an impact, but please keep it in mind when writing at length.
Of course, you are always more than welcome to post more than once, so please don’t feel gagged in any way. This is simply to make it easier for people to skim through the posts, because the longer ones do tend to be overlooked.
Thank you for your co-operation.
We’ve got a new poll today, so do let us know which is your favourite track from David’s second solo album, 1984’s ‘About Face’.
‘There’s No Way Out Of Here’ romped to victory in last week’s poll with 44% of the vote, proving itself your undisputed favourite from David’s eponymous 1978 debut.
‘I Can’t Breathe Anymore’ came second with 10% and instrumentals ‘Mihalis’ and ‘Raise My Rent’ polled 9% each. There was also a late surge of votes for ‘So Far Away’, which also polled 9%.
Thanks for taking part, and thanks to Erin for today’s blog suggestion.
