Sometimes the constant noise of the world can be overwhelming. I have always found this song to be a calm within that sometimes storm. -tM
There is this sacred conversation that happens between the soul and the music being played.
Music heard so deeply, that it is not heard at all, but you become the music.
You cannot touch it, yet with precision you converse with its beat.
And when it leaves you, it changes you.
It always changes you. -tM
This song has been on repeat and keeping me feeling warm and sunny these past few blustery and snow filled days. -tM
Flashback to simpler days, when all a band needed was some bread, tomatoes, a few beers, and some apricot juice. -tM
For when you are overcome with desire and the need for some instant gratification…
Great LIVE remixed version. -tM
This video still makes me laugh. And from time to time I still find myself singing the chorus. It’s a song once hearing, that you can never really walk away from. Yet another nostalgic moment and a reminder that fish heads are incredibly versatile. -tM
A young Depeche Mode up top, still relevant (well to my generation) and David Gahan, after 37 years of doing the same moves, still has one of the most magnetic and sexy presences on stage (I think it is magnified by his deep voice, choice of attire, and need to move his body) I have had the pleasure of enjoying live many times. -tM
That voice. He sings from his gut. This is soul.
Bach was my favourite composer to play on the piano, complicated pieces, and sounds translated onto the piano. The whole point was to make Bach sound effortless, simple. This young man does what I tried to do with my hands, he simplifies Bach through dance and gives it a secondary life through his own movement.
Simply beautiful. -tM
Oh for the love of my youth, for the originality of fashion in the 80’s, and for the love of Duckie. -tM
There has been a bit of a Chris de Burgh resurgence on my play list as of lately. Great song from the “Into the Light” album. -tM
He has written some of the best ballads to this day. And that moody sax solo, I am sent a drift on memory bliss. -tM
Because sometimes with love you can't afford to miss even just one. -tM
A friend sent this to me a while ago. I am revisiting this piece on this rainy Tuesday morning. -tM
"The roads gleam towards you
The oceans beckon towards you
A beauty beyond the lapping waves..."

Most evenings, I listen to jazz to wind down, let go, and just be. Even though it's not September, this piece certainly embodies its spirit. There is space amongst its notes, and presence of release throughout its melody. It speaks to me. -tM
This needs to be listened to on a stereo. The perfect combination of instrumental, lyrics, and vocals, carried by a sexy melody weaving its way in and around the maudlin lyrics. -tM
You recently confirmed a rumor that Prince proposed to you onstage.
Yes, during the Sign o' the Times Tour. I was playing drums and it was during "Purple Rain." That song always made me cry. We were so into it. The way he played – my God. My eyes were closed a lot during that song. It was just so emotional. Musically, you know when you get to that place where you're just one? We hit that place. And when I opened my eyes, I could see his eyes were opening as well. He turned and looked at me during his solo and that's when he asked me to marry him and I said yes. We were still playing the song.
Did the audience know? Was it a big moment?
Oh no, it was just him and I. We didn't even see anybody else as far as I'm concerned. It was just him and I.

A universal truth so many of us at one point in our lives could have related to.
On another note, I love how the drum solo's unfold toward the end of the song -tM
