bridge to nowhere
Up early on a Sunday to make a quiche, so I'll pop up a bridgey playlist before I start.. First up, My Bloody Valentine with a deliciously melodic and coherent interlude during the middle 8 of I only said.
Trains and boats and planes
Bacharach brilliance, as well as the fact that this song must be set in Stuttgart- Trains leaving for Paris or Rome?
Man o' sand to girl o'sea
Always meant to do a Robert Forster Go-betweens tribute to match the Grant Mclennan post- this track would have been my first pick. Geeeeeeetar...
Incendiary bridge in this track by the legendary Dunedin band
Shoplifters of the world unite
A hand on my shoulder, a push and it's over.. Bridgetastic.
It never entered my mind
Miles packs a whole song's worth of emotion into a couple of notes at the point where the lyrics would read "you have what I lack myself..."
I didn't really want to post thousands of jazz funk tracks, this Cannonball Adderley track deserves special attention for the contrast, as an irresistable groove develops out of the almost church-like bookends. It was also conceived as a single.
Another pushy song..
