The only pages I didn’t save were the ones giving me a link to my Top 100 Songs of 2018 playlist – which you’ll find a link to below – and the final “share” page to share your Spotify stats rundown via social media.

 

Lyric Of The Day – Lostboy!

Lyric of the day

Song: Lostboy

Album: Lostboy! A.K.A Jim Kerr

Year of release: 2010

Words: Jim Kerr

This song makes me cry. I know it sounds silly, but it’s like he wrote a love song to his younger self! It’s beautiful and nostalgic. For a man who doesn’t like to dabble in nostalgia, he seems to get caught up in it quite a bit! Lol

There are subtley different lyrics printed on the album sleeve –

Never understand you with all those crazy plans,
You lost boy, lost boy.
You’d never try to please with all that energy,
Lost boy, lost boy.

But he DEFINITELY sings “always Julius Caesar” instead of “with all that energy”. It’s certainly more ambiguous – what the hell does he mean by THAT? He was a military man, feeling as though he was marshalling his troops? Beware the Ides of March, Jim? Maybe when he returns to FB, I’ll have to ask. Always love learning. At least I can try asking the man himself :-))

The Lostboy! album has wonderful artwork inside the gatefold. That’s Jim understanding the aesthetics that vinyl records can give. It’s not just an aural experience, but a visual one as well.

Bought this today. Lostboy! aka Jim Kerr on vinyl.

By sheer coincidence, it’s the 5th anniversary of its release, so Jim said in a post on the SM FB wall a short time ago. How amazing for me to buy it today. What are the chances? (as Harry Hill would say. Lol)
