A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

As a kid, I had a book on the unexplained that included a chapter about Gloomy Sunday ("The Hungarian Suicide Song!"). I think I was in my 20s before I worked up the courage to listen to it.
Avatar Thu. 4/6/17 10:32am Trouble:

fascinating @ oscar, i did not know the background to that song. thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 4/6/17 10:34am The Oscar:

@Trouble It's been debated how much is true and how much is myth, but it's still a great spooky legend. Always happy to pass on some good creepiness!

I very much wanted to see Mary Lattimore last Thursday but, alas, work awfulness foreclosed that opportunity. ... So much sustained aural beauty this Thursday!

I didn't see Julie but I do want to see Acid Mother's Temple. Curious. Are there any shows anyone is going to???

We are Wolves has a great Trouble song, that I have been listening to for a 10k playlist.
  Thu. 4/6/17 11:27am Mark R:

This "Broken Moon" song is lovely, too. Especially on this dreary drizzly day somehow. Oh, hell, EVERYTHING you play is so good! I'll just shut up now.
  Thu. 4/6/17 11:28am specksnyder:

Yeah, this is great. Never heart of the band. I'll shut up, too.

Trying to come up with the connection between this song, the Faulkner story, and the idea of it being by the Zombies.
  Thu. 4/6/17 11:39am kimzilla:

This song is so stuck in my head because of S-Town, and now its my favorite song to torture my co-host, Emily with! Thanks!
  Thu. 4/6/17 11:40am Lucky:

Never heard this version of Rose for Emily. Huh.
Avatar Thu. 4/6/17 11:40am Chris from DC:

A great segue to Grouper.

Such a good show, yet again. Trouble, I'm guessing you've seen this article already, but in case not, I think you might be interested: www.nytimes.com...
  Thu. 4/6/17 11:41am specksnyder:

Not sure what S-town is, but must investigate to see if it fits the matrix of bizarre/sad death mummification/undead themes.
  Thu. 4/6/17 11:42am specksnyder:

Ah, now I see what S-town is, and it does fit ... somehow.

When posting links, you can delete all the crud from the ? onwards when the ? appears after "htm" or "html". (I'm being pedantic, I know, but in app view, that link is obnoxiously super long for no reason.)

Sure thing Ike - I didn't realize that was happening on the app view. Thanks for the tip!
