Music Minute: Anything Anything – Dramarama !!

dramaramacurrent

“Okay, what is it tonight?
Please just tell me what the hell is wrong?
Do you want to eat? Do you want to sleep?
Do you want to drown?
Just settle down, settle down, settle down

I’ll give you candy, give you diamonds
Give you pills, give you anything you want
Hundred dollar bills
I’ll even let you watch the shows you want to see
Just marry me, marry me, marry me”

 

So not only are we in love with the single; Anything Anything, by Dramarama, but we are obsessed with this one when it comes to Karaoke!  Us boys at The Eye of Faith have become addicted to singing our guts out every weekend.  We suggest it to all, it’s a great stress reliever.

This band originates from L.A. and formed in 1982.  Playing into the whims of New-Wave, with an alternative edge.  We suggest looking into and discovering this group if you want to rock out.

Until next time,

Music Minute: “Dear God” – XTC (1986)

Whenever we question our own reality and or think about our New Dracula Shades, this is one of the tunes that jumps into our Head’s and gets our toe’s tappin’.  We’re lover’s of the hippie glasses and  penchant for Hats, not to mention overall gentlemanly style of this English Invasion.

Not only is the message frank, but the statements linger and in a sea of pop act’s who sing about drivel, we find it very refreshing to find a group who aren’t afraid to say how they really feel!  Especially here at The Eye of Faith, a rebellious song questioning the existence of God is right up our alley!

From Swindon, England, XTC was active between 1977 and 2005. The band enjoyed some chart success, including the UK and Canadian hits you may recall; “Making Plans for Nigel” (1979) and “Senses Working Overtime” (1982)

First coming together in 1972, the core duo of Andy Partridge (guitars & vocals) and Colin Moulding (bass & vocals) went through many band names. Possible names being The Helium Kidz and Star Park, it wasn’t until 1976 the band settled on the name XTC.

With provoking lyrics like “Did you make disease, and the diamond blue? Did you make
mankind after we made you? And the Devil too!” it’s no wonder this New Wave group stirred up quite the sensation with the God fearing crowd worldwide.

“I won’t believe in heaven and hell. No saints, no sinners, no
devil as well. No pearly gates, no thorny crown. You’re always
letting us humans down. The wars you bring, the babes you
drown. Those lost at sea and never found, and it’s the same the
whole world ’round. The hurt I see helps to compound that
Father, Son and Holy Ghost is just somebody’s unholy hoax,
and if you’re up there you’d perceive that my heart’s here upon
my sleeve. If there’s one thing I don’t believe in

it’s you….”

Music Minute: “Rainbow Connection” – Debbie Harry and Kermit


Over 20 years ago, Debbie Harry made a solo appearance on Jim Henson’s, “The Muppets Show”.  Taking on comedy sketches and a duo of ‘Blondie’s’ hits, the blonde siren shined amongst the motley crew of green boy scout muppets.   Truly sensational, sandwiched in a season of star hosts, the like of Diana Ross and Paul Simon, the new wave rocker let her hair down and had a lot of fun in Episode 509 of “The Muppet Show” in 1980.

We proudly bring you a clip of Ms Harry performing “Rainbow Connection”, one of the most iconic Muppet anthems, with the one and only, Kermit the Frog.  The Bombshell plays down any knowledge of knowing Kermit’s famed song, until the two come together for a beautiful rendition of “Rainbow Connection”.
