Gary Numan had that song in the 80’s, “Cars“, which I was minorly fond of but never interested enough to delve further into his music. On one of my YouTube music video binges, his new song, “My Name is Ruin”, came up and I figured “let’s see how his music has changed over the years”. Well let’s just say this song spoke to me in a way that “Cars” never did. It’s powerful, mature, rich, polished yet still with an edge. His daughter Persia performs in this with him too. I have been listening to this every day since I found it, so of course it was expected to show up on it’s own as an earworm, going through my head sometime, and that time was this morning.
Was watching many music videos before bed last night, so no surprise there would be something stuck in my head this morning.
I had completely forgotten about this song until last night, but back in the early 90’s I liked this song very much. Golden Brown by the Stranglers. (I know it was released in the 80’s but I didn’t get my Stranglers’ Greatest hits until the 90’s which is where I was introduced to the song) I like almost any music that incorporates vintage or antique sounds and instruments, so the harpsichord is what got me hooked on this song.
What I found last night though, that reintroduced me to this song did not have a harpsichord. Nope. No Harpsichord. Try Mariachi! How fun.
