Eclectic Mainline 15th December 2010

After all these years of thinking Blue Monday included the line “Icon and shallow bay” I finally realised tonight, when listening to The Jolly Boys‘ version, what the actual line is – “I can and shall obey“!

Also on the topic of cover versions, I also think it’s worth including here Robert Wyatt‘s words in describing his cover of What A Wonderful World:
Our ‘Wonderful World’ is not sarcastic, ironic or even just sentimental.  It’s Social Realism: not the WHOLE truth, but nevertheless The Truth.

Usually by mid-December I would have stuck in the odd festive tune, and would be reviewing the past 12 months.  But this year, well, I’m just getting on with the business of playing new releases, such as these from tonight:
