When David Bowie came out with “Blue Jean” in 1984, I will admit, I wasn’t that excited about it. Seemed too saxophone-y.
Give the Black Eyed Man album a listen. Murder, Tonight, in the Trailer Park is a fairly laid back tune that accentuates the story in the lyrics and especially Margo Timmins’ vocals. If you don’t love her singing after hearing this song, not sure what the issue is
There was a time when I thought Sarah McLachlan was going to be the biggest new music star of the 1990s. That didn’t happen, but she put out some great music.
The album Everyone is Here, by the Finn Brothers, reached me personally when it came out in 2004. Particularly the song Disembodied Voices.
