My latest Longing Look. A love letter to the lyrics of Pale Blue Eyes by The Velvet Underground. It's a beautifully constructed five verse tragedy. #lyrics

Second coffee tourist dispatch from Uganda. Poverty at origin is as much of a threat to sustainable food supply chains as climate change. Price transparency is a vital antidote to supply chain venality. #supplychain #sustainability #foodsecurity #coffee #uganda

I pasted the lyrics of My Girl into the Hemingway app and it hardly raised a quibble. Brilliantly economic and elegant story telling.

"I prefer the irony and the lyrical chimera of of Ferry’s early work to the cuckolded insecurity of the teary-eyed jilt-pop anthems that defined Roxy Music’s later years."

Latest Longing Look. The lyrics of Hurt by Trent Reznor. Comparing and contrasting the Nine Inch Nails original and the Johnny Cash cover.

" Reznor whispers then rails. Cash resigns. Reznor is fucked up. Cash is frail. Reznor delivers a cautionary tale about addiction. Cash delivers a sermon on mortality."

The latest Longing Look. Fisherman's Blues by the Waterboys. According to the lyricist in question, Mike Scott, +James Caig has written a "beautiful piece" about this folk hymn, this gospel shanty. #lyrics #music  #review   #thewaterboys

Latest Longing Look. A masterpiece of compact, profound storytelling by Billy Bragg. One of the most confrontational pop song opening lines I can think of. #music   #lyrics   #review
