Who remember the band “After the Fire”? You know, the guys who covered “Der Kommissar” back in the 80′s? Well, they’ve always kinda been regarded as a “one hit wonder” (they had one hit in the US, and one hit of a different song in Britain), but my favorite song by them has always been “Sometimes”, which was off the same album as Der Kommissar. And that song never got popular; not in the slightest.
Fast forward to now, and I’m looking for it, and it’s nowhere to be found. I got desperate enough to go to the band’s website and send them an email… and I got a prompt reply back! Apparently, that recorded version isn’t around anymore, but they still do it live. So, I’m left with this. Enjoy!
Reason #454 Why I love the internet:
OK, so for like, two days, I’ve had a Neil Diamond song stuck in my head… only knew three words, and the general melody, but still, stuck in my head (isn’t that particularly agonizing, by the way?).
So tonight, we (Joelle and me) were watching TV, and things came to a boil. I just couldn’t take not knowing the name of the song anymore… so we bust out our iPhones. I google, “play it now”, she pulls up her spotify, getting the Neil Diamond collection at the ready. I find the lyrics, which gives me the song title, and a few seconds later, we’re listening to “Cracklin’ Rose”.
Ah, I love that song. Even though I still don’t know any of the words besides play it now. Something about a guitar humming, maybe.
But, I digress…
So, yeah, something that may have tormented me for days, now solved in a matter of minutes. Thank you, technology.
