Alan Rankine (The Associates).

64.  To be knocking out stuff like "Party Fears Two" way back was next level.

    Itaian football maestro Gianluca Vialli.

    I remember him in his prime for Juve, a class act and a real handful to play against.  Managed Chelsea and Watford later on and was a scholar of the game and dapper gentleman pundit.

    58.  Cancer.

    Damn.

    She crammed a lot in and outlived her dad.  I hope I can say the same.

    I just recently discovered Sadistic Mika Band, they have some stuff.

    Didn't realize Masayoshi Takanaka was in that band, he's known in Brazil for all the covers he's done of Jorge Ben and Pepeu Gomes tracks, and for playing that crazy surfboard guitar.

    RIP to Yukihiro Takahashi, his albums are constantly recommended to me by the Algorithm™

    RIP David Crosby.  Salty dude for sure - but the songs... cowabunga, dude.

    Not my lane by any means but I do sometimes listen to "If I Could Only Remember My Name" on the recommendation of @RAJ and it passes the vibe check.  He was obviously a gifted musician and had a sharp wit.  Also turns out that his manager is an old acquaintance from my digging days.  Safe travels Croz.

    Absolute banger : (They Long to Be) Close to You.  The Carpenters one.

    Everyone knows a BB tune.  For me, the signature move is the melody is always written for the human voice.  And the tastemiester bab-bah horn arrangements.  I read all the obits and never knew he'd gone back so far as Marlene Dietrich and been married to Angie Dickinson, or that his Asperger's daughter killed herself.  For all the fame, there's always a hint of tragedy in the wings, right?

    Lachrymosity-R : "Close to You" reminds me of my late mum.  Even before she passed, I knew this would be the tune that would always kick me right in the feels and then once more for spite, when she wasn't going to be around anymore. I remember her singing this to me at probably two or three years old.  One of my earliest memories.

    Thanks Burt!

    Damn, I'm been on a kick with De La lately and was just thinking about how Dave was really underappreciated as a lyricist, in particular.  Like you never hear De La - let alone Trugoy - in ppls top 10 lists (but they are to me). But as I listened back, Dave had these really thoughtful things to say and was just effortless with it across four classic albums, and then some.  It's kind of sad that he won't get to see a new generation of young people have their wigs split. RIP

    Great reminiscence Jim, I can feel the melancholy across the miles

    I just decided: the greatest Burt B song version is the Stranglers with Walk on By

    My mother as a child in the late 60s attended the same dance school as her and Charlene Tilton. I have to ask her more when I see her and my uncle on Friday.

    I've had tickets to see them since November, it was put back on the night due to ill health but...  Damn thun.  I guess I will have to wait for hopefully some time.

    Yep, one of the most creative acts on the scene, had a bigger idea than just a mic and a turntable (not that Primo/Guru didn't take that format and do it to the max) but the De La ideology was driving everything.
