Somebody on one of the SM groups asked what song is one you think is superior live to the studio recording – or something like that…
I generally love both versions of the majority of songs, but for quite some time now – and I have to prefix this by saying that there is NOTHING wrong with the studio version of it – but for me, the one song that is BETTER live…ALWAYS better live (than opposed to the studio version) is Celebrate. I will almost always pick a live version to listen to over the album version, or even the 12 inch version.
And nearly always this version (see below)…though there are plenty of other live versions I love too. But this….OMG…it is so, so, sssoooooooo SEXY!
If I had a TARDIS and the gallus, I would rip Jim to shreds here! OMG! He would not know what’s hit him! Lol. Jesus, I wish!
Anyway…there was no real contest with that, eh?
I needed a pick-me-up (the old “Tiramisu”) because after going on about how much I am loving the study of Mozart and classical music this week, I fell flat on my arse trying to learn about melody. I don’t know what it is…I just don’t get it!
Everything else was going great in my task to decipher elements in the music, until I got to the melody bit – big fail! One day…ONE DAY, I’ll understand what it is properly and be able to detect it properly.
Until such time, I am going to watch Jim clad head to toe in leather and sing the words “act of love” like a growling panther and drool and possibly get a little … moist (eeww! I know! That was a truly disgusting overshare! I cannae help it. I am a hormonal, menopausal woman who hasn’t had sex in as many years as Good News From The Next World has been available…so yeah)
And on that note…
