Now, reading my sister Sharon's blog for the last year or so, I've watched her Friday Flashback posts; a lot of times I remember the songs that are there, and sometimes I don't know them at all, but enjoy being exposed to things I would otherwise not have known about. It's not like the radio stations in Brisbane play anything older than about 3 months... and it's all that new crap like the Pussycat Dolls and such, that doesn't have a bit of real music in it. (my opinion, obviously. Sorry to those that actually like that type of stuff) As such, hearing things that I don't know and that actually is music is fantastic.
So what do these two things have to do with each other? Well, I thought that I'd start trying to post on a simi-regular basis, some sort of Ode to Musica post. To start it off, I thought that I'd dedicate this one to Sharon, in thanks for her involvment of music throughout her blog, both posts about it and random, sometimes obscure references to it. As such, the video that I'm posting is of my favorite Smiths song (which I am currently learning to play, btw). If it wasn't for Sharon, I would never have heard the Smiths, James, The Ocean Blue, They Might Be Giants, and so many more.... so, thanks Shaz!
