I'm a fan for years, but WHY?
You simply forgot?
Or is it on purpose?
Why, why, why, why?
Why didn't you sell the rope with the album?
Now with all the sadness, I 've got to find a blade or a gun!
Love you. :-]

Hang in there Ste, have faith. While we would all love one on one contact or even a letter, email, etc.the man works for the mass, a more universal style. And you have got to admit he has helped thousands with his causes and actions. Maybe when you least expect it, something will happen as you would like, if not.you always have us, your Lunatic pack to walk arm and arm with.

Take the knife out of your chest. . .the gun away from your temple. . .and tell us how you REALLY feel!
Do keep the tissues handy though!

Are we supposed to be laughing about this?
I wonder if you also made such a post 8 years ago when Up came out. . .
The Soil25 February 2010 at 9:39pmPosts: 1894 (0 today)Status: offline
Oh well, probably not. Did this forum even exist 8 years ago?! Anyways. . .
This type of music is just part of PG's charm. . . :-]

Yes it did, and I was there, and no I didn't.
Anyway, I still look for the rope
If it doesn't work, after that, I'll try a disc of Jean Jacques Goldman!
Or the Floyd :-]

Oh, as if I needed to tell YOU anything about PG. You sure know better.
I listened to SMB a lot today, and I'm still alive. Hope you are too. LOL

Hello Lovely Lunatics,
I can only assume that you don't like the new cd, Ste??? Is it really that depressing?? (I had a feeling it might be, basically because of the very little bit that I heard.).
I've decided to wait to have the cd in my possession (and I realize that it's already out in Europe). I'll give it a listen or two in my home and hopefully, it won't be too bad.
Hang in there, Ste, and just play some of PG's more upbeat tunes to keep you UP.
For Soil - the moon club has been here since @ 2001 - just prior to UP's release and subsequent tours. It's been since then that many of us lunatics have been here and we've all survived and discussed the good, bad and ugly of PG (not that there's too much bad, and nearly no ugly, mind you :>).
Kind regards to all,
Steph, Listen to "Power of the Heart"!!!! It is a love song from Lou Reed to his wife Laurie Anderson. I don't like Lou's version but I LOVE PG's version. It is sweet and loving and I think, even though I haven't seen much romance in my life, very deeply romantic.

It's second degree, people, I like the album.
Not as much as "Up" or "PG4". . . But I like it!
The Soil26 February 2010 at 8:15amPosts: 1894 (0 today)Status: offline
Ah, yes yes. Thanks for the info Patricia!
Deb, why don't you like Lou's original Power Of The Heart? is it because of Lous' monotonous "singing"? That is part of HIS charm I think. I like the original better, but Peter's version is growing on me more and more.
All in all SMB isn't even THAT negative. I mean look at all the love songs, Power Of The Heart, Book Of Love, Mirrorball. I wonder if the record is a compliment for Meabh. Judging form the songs, she seems to make Peter so full of love.
The Soil26 February 2010 at 8:18amPosts: 1894 (0 today)Status: offline
And Ste, how could ANYONE like it BETTER than a original PG album?
I wonder why PG wants to highlight the art of song-writing through covering other's songs and NOT writing his own.
But still I like SMB.

Hi Again All,
Ste- I should have recognized the :-] at the endo of your post and realized it was a bit tongue in cheek. Anyway, I'm glad to hear that you like it and I'm still looking forward to hearing it in a week or so. I'm trying so hard to resist listening to the songs when they're offered anywhere else. Keep on enjoying!
This time next week, I hope to have heard it all through and will be able to say good, bad or ugly about it.
In the meantime, dealing with yet one more snowstorm in this Furious February here. Today's not so bad with the snow, but the winds are very dangerous and will be for the next few days - a "snowicane" is what they're calling it. Ah, I have to work all weekend and hopefully, won't get taken up into the twister!
Have a good one!

Hey Pat, I have resisted listening to the songs too before I got the album. I had no problem with that. I cannot properly concentrate on music anyways while I'm at the computer, as I do so many other things then. I prefer to listen to music on a CD player, where I can focus my attention on the songs better.
I'm sure you'll like it too. Have a good time until then! Hope the weather will get better where you live! Take care of yourself!
If you want to commit suicide after listening to a cover album by an ex-Genesis singer, wait for the new Phil Collins record.

i have unfortunately taken the same attitude with peter's MUSIC as i have the detroit lions. . .well with not quite such contempt, but have come to expect a kind of. . .dare i say. . .lack of effort in his latest musical ventures. . . but those who are waiting for the "old pete" to come back, pitch a tent and bring enough food to last awhile. . . his unforgettable compositions and performances of such have given way to the love of his life in his "latter" days. . . people

Pathagoras, nothing wrong with letting the past stay the past. He has evolved as is healthy and natural. If he never changed his style of music, I probably would not be as big a fan. Listening to all his albums is like hearing his life history progress right infront of us. I for one, like the place he is at currently. I loved his music then, I loved it in between then and now and of course I love it in the here and now.
