OOPS....are you saying that I'm not allowed to post that?

no..I meant your Freudian slip


As far as I know, Freud never wore a slip.  (but that would be a real exciting find, considering so many of his patients were women)

For me, it would be extraordinarily difficult to narrow Midge Ure down to one favorite - so may a favorite for different moods...

How about perhaps the most dramatic love song ever written or performed...  (which should come as quite a shock to some)...

Just For You

I'm not sure what reading these cold would do for anyone who has never listened to the song, but I can say that anyone that has had a difficult romantic experience in their lives would likely be moved to tears when listening to the passion that Ure puts into the song itself.




And as long as we're posting lyrics...

Just for you, I could fly
Just for you, I could walk the oceans
I would cross all divides
To satisfy your whims and notions
For you, I could break the system
I would take every blow
Survive upon a poor man's wisdom

And if you want I'd chase the world away
And when you cry I'd kiss the tears away

Just for you, I would cry
Just for you, I would fall down to my knees
And pray that I could raise a love that's fit to please you

And if you're lonely I will be with you
If you're in doubt I'll tell you what to do
I would take your hand and I'll lead you through
I'd give my very soul to be with you

And when infatuation fades I'll still be by your side
I will be there when you call
There's not one thing I wouldn't do
That I couldn't do at all
that I wouldn't do at all

Just for you, I would change
Just for you, I would break the system
I would take every blow
Survive upon a poor man's wisdom

So, you seem to be implying that difficult romantic experiences are more universal than one may be willing to concede? And I thought I was the only one.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for posting that. Those words stand up by themselves, but you have piqued my interest and I may have to investigate this Midge Ure person.

I did a wiki on him. What would you suggest? His solo stuff or Ultravox.

I didn't realize that he co-wrote "Do They Know It's Christmas?". I really liked that song.

That's a toughie...   If you were only going to buy one, I personally would go with solo --  either Answers to Nothing or Breathe.  Since you expressed an interest in the song  Just For You,  that one is on Answers to Nothing

I suppose there is a best of Ultravox out there by now so you could pick that up if you wanted to feel them out...

Careful now. Winklepicker may be construed as worthy of a green dot warning.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072706/plotsummary

After the death of private detective Sam Spade, his son, Sam Spade Jr. (who only knew his father very briefly) is forced to inherit his San Francisco detective agency, much to his chagrin. He also must keep his father's sarcastic secretary, Effie Perrine ("Godzilla"), and must continue his father's tradition of "serving minorities". One day, an obese man named Caspar Gutman is killed just outside Spade's building, his last words being "It's black and as long as your arm".

Now I see where I went wrong, trying to work up a discussion of Ten Days That Shook The World over in Non-Fiction as an observance of the 90th anniversary of the Revolution.  If only I'd known about THIS!

(My daughter is gonna download it for her lefty World History/Lit teacher!)
