This will be the first in what I hope to be a series of Long Song posts on Tuesdays. In keeping with the theme of this blog, these long songs will include some of my favorite long songs that you might not have been lucky enough to have previously heard.
This evening, I have some Be Bop Deluxe for your listening pleasure. Be Bop Deluxe was one of my favorite bands when I was in graduate school in the mid-1970’s and this song, Modern Music, is from the 1977 album of the same name. Bill Nelson was the leader of Be Bop Deluxe and this is his masterpiece. It might remind some of the second side of Abbey Road but I think it stands on its own merits. Take a listen
Modern Music – Be Bop Deluxe
As always, let me know what you think.
