Revisiting Winter Spring
« : 01.03.09 at 18:25 »
Way back when - probably when I first joined the Voices forum - I said that one of things that struck me about Winter Spring was that several of the songs seemed to be 'paired' with songs from the 70s repertoire. (Since I wasn't on the list when Winter Spring came out I don't know if I'm just a re-hashing a well-worn thread from 2003 or not).
I liked this - given the history, given the record title.
So with the older songs currently front of mind thanks to Val Jennings' excellent work, I thought it might be worth making the connections explicit (I meant to link these, but have failed to crack the hyperlink instructions):
So Loud -> The Man Who Walked Towards The Music
Dancing Master -> The Flowers and the Wine (from regret to resignation)
Daughter of the Sun -> No Dice (actually I'm not sure about this, it's just an association that came to mind as I was listening)
An Empty Table -> Between Us There Is Nothing ('but the shadow of the future that will never let us go to be together)
Prayer Against The Hitman -> I See The Joker (kind of obviously...)
Thought of You -> Lady of a Day, maybe.
