Earworms 28 May 2018

49

Buildings! Construction! Rush, rush, busy busy! Here they are, late again, all this “having a social life” is seriously disrupting my worms. Anyway, if you have a worm you’d like to share, please send it to [email protected] in the form of an .mp3 or a link, with a few lines about why you’ve chosen it. Next week’s theme will be Leaves. A tree, a book, turning over a new one … surprise me with shoehorns. Many thanks to all contributors.

Compulsion – Mall Monarchy – vanwolf: Couldn’t think of much else outside of houses. But building a shopping mall is quite a feat and plus it’s a great song.

Cat Stevens – Into White – AliM: A long time favourite, and probably a previous worm, but I am shameless.

Mammut – Walls – severin: “Tear down all the walls we keep”. Yes, well, they’re probably metaphorical but it’s still better than “we’re gonna build that wall” 

Guy Clark – Boats To Build – tincanman: If I had a hammer this week I’d give it to a house carpenter and then I’d [ED: stop trying to be clever. You’re not funny]. Sigh. Everyone’s a critic. Anyway, I have inexplicably never sent a Guy Clark song in for earworms and this is him at his legendary best, so that’s what you’re getting. 

Cowboy Junkies – Working On A Building – Ravi Raman: Not exactly fair but this has long been a favourite. And I love the quiet intensity of this version.

Kim Churchill – Coded In Concrete – severin: The joys of the open road. “Keep the safe within their concrete walls, and clear of all their sins, code their days and ways and leave them, but let me roll down through the canyons”. Not so keen on buildings and construction then?

Sugar – Hoover Dam – vanwolf: It’s a pretty important construction I guess and a glorious anthem.
