From the sublime to the ridiculous

I think we all need to feel good today.

This is so beautiful and hopeful, I wanted to share:

Ray Davies with the Crouch End Festival Chorus: Shangri-La (live 10-28-07)

Apparently it's the first time ever performed live.

And from the sublime to the ridiculous; I don't know why, but every time I see this video I start to laugh. I think it had to do with how "earnest" Springsteen and Bono seem. Yeah, I know it was anti-apartheid, but it just seems so dated and cheesy.

It might also be because I still get shit from my pals about if I am going to play Sun City since I usually am wearing a "Little Steven style Schmatta" on my head.

Now playing: Hitchcock, Robyn & The Egyptians - Listening to the Higsons
