After yesterday’s exhaustive (and exhausting) effort with the Ten Masked Men, I’m stumped for an idea of what to play you today.
Let’s get methodical:
- This is an Australian power pop blog, so I’ll make it an Australian song.
- This is an power pop blog, so I’ll make it a power pop song.
- Or I could just ignore points 1 and 2, and play the first song in my collection that takes my fancy.
Point 3 seems the easiest, so I’ll go with that.
OK. That’s sorted.
I thought I’d have a look in the “G” section to see what was in there, because I haven’t gone anywhere the “G” section in ages. The first thing in there that caught my eye was David Gilmour‘s first solo album, David Gilmour. I remembered that I bought the album because of one song, “There’s No Way Out Of Here”, which I loved way back then. I’ve just had another listen to the song and yep, I still love it.

I’ve only just found out that the song by Mr. Gilmour is actually a cover version. It was originally recorded by a band called Unicorn, and in the “It’s a small world” department it was produced by… David Gilmour.
