A holiday tradition here on Slope………
Well, there goes another piece of my childhood…….
I’ve got a couple of content-rich posts in the hopper, but c’mon, it’s Sunday night – – relax a little. When I was a little boy, I remember so well one of my older brothers playing this song. Enjoy.
Since I don’t really play any musical instruments, I’ve always been fascinated by those who do. Many of the layers of a song are missed as we enjoy it, but the bass line to Billy Idol’s “Eyes Without a Face” is really cool, so I thought I’d seek out a guy playing just the bass part. I find this mesmerizing (and if nothing else, it’s cool background music while you do your trading):
I’m a big Monty Python fan, but as you might guess, being a good contrarian, I don’t really go for the standard classics like “Pet Shop” or “Ministry of Silly Walks” (good as they both are). I like the more obscure stuff. Below is my favorite album they ever did, which is almost entirely music or ditties. It’s brilliant, and I hope you like it.
