Musical coincidences # 249

May 23, 2012

Here’s another Facebook-conversation-inspired coincidence. And this one, like the earlier one, was initiated by Facebook Fiend Friend Scotty (Hi, Scottster!).

Scotty posted a song by Australian troubadour Tim Reid called “Love With You“. When I heard it, one of the song’s melodies reminded me of a melody in a song from a year before.

Let the coincidencing begin…

Tim Reid – “Love With You (2003) (excerpt)


Starclock – “Yo Pussycat” (2002) (excerpt)


Considering the Starclock track has never been readily available anywhere (i.e. hardly anyone’s heard it), I’m 93.219% sure that’s a coincidence.

Here are the full versions:

Tim Reid – “Love With You (2003)

Starclock – “Yo Pussycat” (2002)


Song of the day: Tim Reid – "Only One"

After the loud head-pounding songs I inflicted upon you in the last few days, it’s time to relax a little.

Here’s Australian troubadour Tim Reid with a somnambulistic low-key and thoughtful song from his latest 4-track EP, Only One:

Update 1 (Tuesday 4 October): I had an MP3 of “Only One” by Tim Reid in this spot but it seems that someone, somewhere, somehow didn’t want me to share it with you because Blogger sent me a none-too-friendly message saying that something (they never tell you exactly what the naughty part of the post is – see Update 2 below) was a big no-no.

And if you want to hear the whole thing:

Update 2: Here’s the message from Blogger in its entirety. I would love them to tell me specifically what was wrong with this post…
