Got my copy of Blur’s album 13 so here they are – the two songs that I really love from this album back in the 1990s: the upbeat Coffee and TV…
…and the gospel-like Tender Is The Night.
I’ll Follow the Sun, a few seconds of World Without Love (wow!) & One And One Is Two.

U2 have delayed their Buenos Aires gig so fans can watch Argentina’s World Cup qualifying match.
The country face Ecuador tonight (October 10) and must win if they want to qualify for next year’s World Cup.
The Irish band, who have brought their ‘The Joshua Tree’ tour to South America, have agreed to push back their stage time by almost two hours, according to the gig’s organisers.
As Yahoo reports, fans will be able to watch the match on four big screens at each corner of La Plata stadium, where the show is due to be held.
Producer Daniel Grinbank told Argentinian paper La Nacion: “Can you imagine what the show’s going to be like if Argentina wins? And if we lose, at least we can get rid of the bitterness with a great show. You can’t go wrong.”
U2 will be supported by Noel Gallagher at the show, as they were for the European dates on this world tour. The guitarist recently described supporting the band as “the most fun” he’s ever had.
Speaking to the FC Barcelona website while visiting the Camp Nou stadium while in Spain with U2, he explained how much he was enjoying the tour. “I’ve been touring in one form or another for over 25 years and this is the most fun I’ve ever had,” he said.
“I’m only on stage for an hour. I’m off stage by eight o’clock, half eight. Have summat to eat, something to drink, watch U2, have two days off. We’re playing in all the great cities in Europe. My family are on the road with me [and] my friends. It’s been amazing. They’re been absolutely brilliant every night. They’re one of my favourite ever bands, ever.”
Love this band. Just got hold of their 2013/2014 album last week and I really fancy this song
A sitar owned and played by George Harrison has been sold for $62,500 (£46,581) in the United States. The instrument, purchased from a shop on London’s Oxford Street in 1965, was used by Harrison during the recording of the Beatles song Norwegian Wood.
The orchestral works of late Beatlesproducer George Martin will be released on a new album, George Martin: The Film Scores and Original Orchestral Compositions, November 10th via Atlas Realisations/Pias Classics. A limited edition double vinyl LP will be available in January 2018.
Conductor Craig Leon and the Berlin Music Ensemble recorded the album at the Meistersaal in Emil Berliner Studios in Berlin. The LP will feature the music Martin penned for films like Yellow Submarine and Live and Let Die, as well as his previously unrecorded choral and orchestral score for The Mission. It will also include new versions of the overture Martin wrote for a 1988 album version of the famous British radio dramaUnder Milk Wood, as well as hisThree American Sketches suite for violin and chamber orchestra and other previously unreleased original compositions.
