Your Turn, My Turn  performed by The Go-Betweens  1981
Recommended by Dalriada [profile]

This track is on one of those New Wave compilations that I tend to hoard but never really listen to. Well, yesterday I listened to it and found this precious jewel that's been on constant repeat ever since. I've always known about The Go-Betweens, people always told me "The Go-Betweens this", "The Go-Betweens that" and "Why don't you listen to The Go-Betweens?" but, honestly, I never really bothered to. They didn't sound that exciting to me. But this here! Like most ingenious and overwhelming things, at 3 minutes running time it is much too short and yet it is just long enough. It is 3 minutes of concentrated beauty, drama, new-wavy-angst and poetry. It feels like a heartbreak after a night of heavy boozing with its swaying, jerky melody and Forster's manic-depressive vocal performance. Actually, I should try listening to it after a night of heavy boozing and see if it can get any better than it already is.

from Send Me a Lullaby, available on CD (Rough Trade Records)

the perfect song for driving in your car on a hot summer's afternoon,

from 16 Lover's Lane, available on CD (Beggar's Banquet)



  08 Mar 03 ·eftimihn: I can absolutely confirm that, since i played it various times on the occasion described above. Ivy recently did a very sweet version of the tune on their last album "Guestroom".
Clouds  performed by The Go-Betweens  1988

The song with the heavenly lilt! It gets into a groove and chugs along merrily, with those lilting guitars in the background and some lovely light fretwork in the bridges and at the end. Excellent!

from 16 Lovers Lane, available on CD (Beggars Banquet)


Palm Sunday (On Board the S.S. Within)  performed by The Go-Betweens  1985

Gorgeous organ swirl with McLennan's harmonies. Just a beautiful song.

from Liberty Belle and the Black Diamond Express (Beggars Banquet)
