The blogosphere does much to level the playing field for nationality, ethnicity, sexual preference, age and gender, but music — the variety of influences at different times and places actually accentuate the differences in musical taste.
As always muffled lyrics leave songs up to misinterpretation so I am not too sure I caught the thread of your post, but thanks for the music anyway.

well..sir iscariot...days have come and gone and here i find myself...back to your blog..you're insisting on not muddying up papers with yesterdays news..and i honor that although i did at least give it a good bang..i shall endeavor to learn how to use the archive box and stray back to where it was i last left off... ;p

..i've snuck in, read in silence and come away mystified at how you are the one to make your words take on a life of their own...

and now, today..i have made a discovery...i'm smitten with the crowded hour song and shall wax lyrically over the...ehem..lyrics..i'm sure..for days..

thankyou for this delightful surprise...

The final links are:
Deacon Blue are named after the song 'Deacon Blues' by Steely Dan who are named after a giant dildo in William Burroughs' 'Naked Lunch'.

The frst two video titles said Saul Bellow immediately! I didn't know Deacon Blue got their name from A Steely Dan song. I knew where Steely Dan got ther name.

I heard tell that Robyn Hitchcock's band the Soft Boys is a fusion of Burroughs titles...

Well, I can't answer these questions but I enjoyed the music. Are any prizes involved in getting the answers right. Prizes do tend to be motivating. :)
