My new year Discoveries
This year I began by watching a lot of old movies and digging up old songs due to the monumental disappointments on recent ones. I re-watched Looker, Westworld, From Beyond and watched Child's Play for the first time and it was awesome! The 1939 version of The Women was way ahead of its time and I can honestly say humanity somehow regressed almost to the point of idiocy. I also finally listened to Peter Gabriel's Scratch My Back and Sting's Mercury Falling and they are simply remarkable. While Gabriel's slow deep drawl with dramatic orchestral accompaniment remind me of Shakespearean tragedies Sting's easy jazzy soulful music is food for the soul. Anne Murray's duets with friends and legends is another delectable album for a cozy evening. I replayed my old McCartney II and it brought back such wonderful memories especially how I saved up to buy the good old vinyl, my first and last of any McCartney albums. There is also something call the lost McCartney II album which features unreleased songs and remixes of the old. And the search for this album has begun!
