June Music Blogathon - Day 3

A Song That Reminds Me Of Someone

Well I guess I could have gone with either of yesterdays tunes but I haven't.

Like many people I link certain records to certain girlfriends :

Me & Mrs Jones - Lesley Naylor
Close to You - Carole Lacey
If You Don't Know Me By Now - Cathy Bartellot
Eight Days a Week - Some girl up in Burnt Oak I can't remember the name of.
And others besides...

But in the end I have gone for a record which reminds me of my brother. There were many I could have gone for as he introduced me to Bowie, outside of the singles, and also Led Zeppelin although that never really gelled with me. But this song isn't so much something that reminds me of him for his influence, but a song that reminds me that, although I was desperate for a sister, in the end having a brother was pretty special.

From his first eponymous album I present for you......

The Greatest Discovery

Blimey and indeed O'Reilly. I haven't heard that album for decades, despite having a vinyl copy of it somewhere. Thank you for this memory jog.

Aww, that's nice.
I never really appreciated Elton's genius until later in life.
I daresay I have a bit of catching up to do.

Brennig - I've got a copy somewhere too but I need to get a cd version.

Masher - There are some good tracks on here and on the next few albums before he started to hit megastardom.
