Any fans out there? Would be interested to hear your top 5, and reasons. Rules: one song per album.

Mine are:

* Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands (1966). Perfection. Elgeiac, wistful, beautiful. I would defy you to find 11 minutes of 'popular' music more poignant.

* Desolation Row (1965). Lyrically up there with TS Eliot and Thomas Hardy. Stark and oppressive, but lures you into to its hypnotic melody.

* Tangled Up In Blue (1975). Probably the best 'ending of relationship' song ever written. Unbearably sad.

* With God on our Side (1963). Voltaire: 'Good people do bad things, bad people do bad things. It takes religion for otherwise good people to do bad things.'

* Sara (1976). Probably the second best 'ending of relationship' song. Rips your guts out.

The Holy Shit What Is Happening Music Thread
at 21:46 23 Sep 2019

Feeling a bit odd. Have always enjoyed the music threads, so I thought I'd start one. I'm very old, so my contribution is the Great Rory, but always love new stuff.

Is it just me or is there a distinct rise in the number of beggars in/around town - particularly around the railway stations and on the tube? In my day (I'm talking 70s/80s) it was bad enough but the vast majority seemed to be pretty genial old soaks whereas now there seems to be large numbers of young people (dependent on drugs?) who you'd think could do much better things with their lives. Why is this happening? And are there any solutions?

Flying in from afar to get to this one (yeah i know - if there's a cure let me know) but me and Birmingham are strangers - anybody can recommend overnight stay somewhere?

Oh - and late night boozer would also be useful. Ta
House/flat buying advice please
at 12:45 5 Sep 2013

Spending the 'international break' weekend looking at flats to buy, and am increasingly noticing the agents putting 'offers over...' on their bumf, which I find even more irritating than 'guide price'. Does this actually mean that they won't accept an offer below the price stated or is it just agents' spin?
