My Music Monday
Did they or didn't they ? I'm not sure anyone knows.
I could go way off course and start to talk about the fact that I don't think he and Olive Oyl were married, yet somehow there was this kid - so out of wedlock? fostered? adopted? All very progressive for a cartoon of the....30's(?).
.....and now back on course.
From Cowboy Junkies to Sister of Mercy. THAT is quite a segue, no? Well, welcome to my life, such as it is.
There actually is a SoM website, but it is for a convent, so.................there's that.
I had no affinity for the band back in the day (1988?), but liked the song "This Corrosion". It's interesting in its own way. And while Jim Steinman produced it, it's not in the vein of Meatloaf - Tyler - AirSuppy - Celine mode. Yes, the song is over the top in places, but not in the Steinman tried and true method.
To the readers who may or may not click on this - I think you can ALL thank me for not putting on the 9+ minute album version.
