    Freddie Mercury’s bday was on the 5th.

    Animators Esteban Bravo and Beth David said of making this short film, “We wanted to tell a story that was relevant to Freddie's life, but not explicitly about him. The AIDS crisis of the 1980s is a huge part of LGBT+ history, and it's something that we knew needed to be handled with care. It's a fine line to walk between shedding light on a subject, and perpetuating a stigma, and we were cautious not to lean into tropes and stereotypes that might hurt the modern understanding of the AIDS virus, rather than help it.

    The LGBT+ community fought for years for the right to proper research and healthcare, and because of that fight, millions of lives have been saved. We wanted to celebrate that victory. Through perseverance, strength, and love, our characters not only survive, but live long, healthy lives together.”

    Now listen to Bronski Boys - Small Town Boy and tell me they’re not almost the same sound.

  • Lee82Lee82 Veteran Veteran

    The new debut instrumental album by Benny Gebert is superb, as is the new album by Lambert. Both released today, I highly commend you try them out.

    I’m watching Lambert live in Manchester next month, can’t wait!

    I only heard Small Town Boy a few times in the 80s, and enjoyed it then, but mostly forgot about it. I recently rediscovered the song a few months ago, and really enjoy it - and the video.

    There are similarities, but Bronski Beat's tune has a harder, faster beat which vastly changes the impression it make on me. But I love both songs, so I'm happy all around. Are you saying that you find Still Corners' tune derivative?

    When you hear a song and can't help but hear another song in it then they are too similar. Intentional or not who knows, but there are plenty of copyright cases won for such things where one song samples another or is strongly influenced by it.

    Interestingly I hadn't heard the other song for years and had to look up what it was based on the lyrics I could remember. Even then I never knew who the artist was or what it was called until I found it.

    Recommend the Danny Boyle film 'Yesterday'

    You find yourself in an alternative reality where no one has heard of The Beatles ...

    This proved to be the moist successful advertising campaign Coca cola ever ran, and probably one of the most successful ones ever made, for any product. Amazing how a song can get stuck in your head; the moment you hear it, you can't associate it with anything else.

    One could say it's addictive

  • federicafederica seeker of the clear blue sky Its better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt Moderator

    One could, but that's not what I meant. I meant that a tune becomes identified with one specific matter, but that doesn't mean it's addictive.

    New (posthumous) Leonard Cohen song... and a very Buddhist video, this really spoke to me, thought the theme of the song text, the music and the video really worked well together. Worth seeing a couple of times.

    And also an accompanying article on Tricycle

    I must admit I have found most of his songs somewhat morbid, insightful but morbid ...I guess this is due to his long association with clinical depression..

    That is true @Shoshin but the morbid and the clinical, the die-pressed and the floating gals all have their song ...

    Many thanks @Kerome

    Have been revisiting this album, which was released four years ago. While I really like this album and how well it captures a certain dark, intense, and contemplative mood, it was really hard for me to listen to. My mom passed away that year, so I couldn't really listen to it until a year or two later. It was way too emotional for me. Because of that, I feel like I couldn't fully appreciate it like I did their other albums. I was too afraid to confront the idea of death and dying, the suffering one often experiences when they're dying, and the intense feelings of loss that come out of a rather omnipresent and natural process. Even to this day, I listen to it sparingly because it still brings up feelings that I shy away from. I love it and hate it at the same time.
