This is classic. We only discovered this a few days ago, but immediately our perspective shone bright on this beguiling and mysteriously seductive tune by the great Scott Walker (not to be confused with Scott Walker, the Governor of Minnesota).
For those who know of Scott Walker, you know he has a wildly fantastic voice – some sort of unique mix between Bowie and Tom Jones, or somehow tottering in limbo between. He got his start as The Walker Brothers, playing with two friends, but it was between the years of 1967 – 1974, Walker began to shine solo.
His works are definitely a product of the time, but demonstrate a forward motion in music, that some argue has yet to be caught up to. Just sit back and listen to the drama and epicness that is Scott Walker’s “Rosemary“.
Voices from a photograph
Laughed from your wall
Screamed through your dreams
Wake up rosemary and wipe your teary eyes…

If you have a spare moment, make sure to listen to Scott Walker’s “Archangel”, giving off extreme E.O.F. vibes all over.
Until next time friends,
