''Dimming of the Day''- Tom Jones.I really want hate to 'Jones the voice's' version of this Richard Thompson classic,originally sung by Linda Thompson,but it ain't that bad,though i prefer Bonnie Raitt's version.No one, however will come close to the original on the 'Pour Down Like Silver'album.
"Sarge, I'm only 18 I gotta ruptured spleen and I always carry a purse. I got eyes like a bat and my feet are flat and my asthma's getting worse. ... I've got a dislocated disc and a wracked up back I'm allergic to flowers and bugs And when the bombshell hits, I get epileptic fits And I'm addicted to a thousand drugs I got the weakness woes, I can't touch my toes I can hardly reach my knees And if the enemy came close to me I'd probably start to sneeze ... Ooh, I hate Chou En Lai, and I hope he dies, Onething you gotta see That someone's gotta go over there And that someone isn't me So I wish you well, Sarge, give 'em Hell! Kill me a thousand or so And if you ever get a war without blood and gore I'll be the first to go!"
Not really right for this thread but, while listening to Dexys new cd hearing the track "Nowhere Is Home" the David Bowie track Sound & Vision came to my head.Do not think it will be stuck there but was unable to listen to the rest of the Dexys cd without Bowie jumping in.
