    They were playing Joy Division in Coles the other week.

    Reminded me I needed razors. Ha ha.

    But Love Will Tear Us Apart in Coles is odd. Fine by me.

    I always find this song beautiful and haunting at the same time, one of my favourites from the early 70s

    There was a short snippet of him doing another song on the Countdown 1986 episode last night. Have only watched about half the episode so don't know whether he pops up again later.

    I played ABBA the Album and Time by ELO at work today, the original releases not the newer deluxe versions with extra tracks.
    ABBA the Album is not one of their best but still has plenty of good stuff on it, The Name Of The Game the best track, Eagle is quite majestic in sound, Take A Chance On Me is irritatingly catchy and Hole In Your Soul is a real rocky number.
    Time was a very futuristic album back in 1981 but some of the references in it now are so out dated but it is a great sounding catchy album, somehow though the re release with extra tracks don't gel well with the original album, don't get me wrong the extra tracks are good songs but they just don't fit with concept of the original album, that is why I only played the original release today.

    Another one turned up loud today, heard it twice, first the release from the box set with the orchestral beginning that wasn't on the original single release and also a longer remix that I got off napster years ago, my favourite ABBA song.

    Just watched the 1986 episode of Countdown.

    Had a real nostalgia trip. I was 10 in 1986. Saw a lot of these episodes. And had the 10 cake out of the Women's Weekly Birthday Cake Book. What a year!

    It's true, music industry in Australia isn't like it was back then. And there really isn't anything around like Countdown was. Which is a shame. I am a RAGE aficionado though.

    I'm listening to Bruce Springsteen Tunnel of Love album, apparently it was said that this album was so depressing that it caused the Stock market crash of 1987, song like Brilliant Disguise, Tunnel of Love , truly a master piece of an album...
    This is my favourite song from the album
