Keep On Marchin'

Posthumous albums, rum affairs: the coughed-up aural fur balls of record company fat cats, mostly.

Since I picked it up gratis a while back I've thought there were two, maybe three, half-decent songs on Dream Of A Lifetime, and one very good one ('Its Madness') but this has got a hold of me in the last few days, multiple 'movements', Lord's Prayer lyrics and all.

Oh, Marvin. 

Marvin Gaye - 'Life's Opera' (written 1972, recorded 1976, released 1985)

  1. I enjoyed that, hadn't heard it before. Nothing containing Marvin's voice could be that bad anyway. He could have Wannabe sound good.

  3. I like a real sweep.

    Dick Van Dyke, for example - Chim Chiminee x
