    I heard this song on the radio earlier today and it made an impression. It's quite uplifting, if you can look beyond the religious imagery and terminology.

    Another one I find inspiring and uplifting, despite the monkeys. I can appreciate that some folks feel that they sold out to pop with this, but it's good pop.

    On a bit of a musical kick today. Just discovered this classic. Love the intro.

    What do we think of the new GagaFace track 'Perfect Illusion' from her upcoming album Joanne (to be released 21 October 2016)?

    Kicked off my Sunday vinyl sessions with some Ol Blue Eyes, Songs For Young Lovers, then some Miles Davis & Gil Evans Porgy and Bess and now the sublime sound of John Coltrane Blue Train all in mono.

    You can't beat listening to music on a turntable.

    Currently listening to a double Cd of Nazareth tunes. Bought it for 50p in a charity shop. Awesome bargain.

    Bruno Mars is back and so is the funk, I really love his output and his funky direction.

    Just went to see Steven Wilson live in concert. He's my girlfriend's favourite music artist. (Especially his work with Porcupine Tree). He and his band are incredible musicians and he was surprisingly funny chatting in between songs. He's very prog rock - but quite eclectic. Sometimes sounding like Pink Floyd, other times like Nine Inch Nails. It was great, an unusual, to go to a concert which I had virtually no prior knowledge of the artist's work.

    This is a shame - Rick Parfitt quitting performing with Status Quote for good.

    Just listening to a play list of Deus while on the way to meet my Wife.

    I know other bands don't get their due but Deus have more creativity in one song than likes of Coldplay have had in their whole career.

    Even later stuff while not as ambitious is still sound of a band pushing themselves forward.

    One day I'll get to see them live, Belgium should be tremendously proud, better than a good number of bands that emerged in the 90's in my own country.

    I love Deus, and Belgium has had dozens of fantastic bands over the last decades.

    Been a fan since Worst Case Scenario came out and have all the albums on vinyl.

    My favourite is In A Bar Under the Sea but I still rate the later material, look forward to new album hopefully next year.

    Giving the Nobel Litterature Prize to Dylan was a brave and deserved decision, and has set a presedence. About time Nick Cave and also Tom Waits were recognized for their litterary qualities as well.
