kulturhack PSB's passionate and in-your-face fearless anthem to gay rights. Intended as the first single from Fundamental, their record label got cold feet . . .
kulturhack If memory serves, this is a John Cale arrangement and production. Nico at the end of her career and tether brings something amazing to this chestnut.
kulturhack The finest lyric and greatest "list" song ever written, period. Structurally, thematically and sing-ably it's perfection; a pop-verse master class.
kulturhack Pop Art-Song: 'Why?' morphs from self-recrimination to a lover's accusation to a plea for truth and then to an existential question about paths taken.

kulturhack Anticipating his intimate, close-mic'd later work, Ferry drops camp and glamour for a dark, resigned reading of a lyric translated by Peter O'Toole.
kulturhack A critique of the limits and temporality of American values in a marginal gloss on the film, Dirty Harry: "We're never gonna ride that way again."
kulturhack A life's inventory: cubistic, nonlinear shards of memory that are fractals of desire. Like Reed's "Perfect Day," the implied context is everything...
kulturhack Distilled Williams: Outside genre and beyond "authentic" details--longing made incantatory; lean, bereaved worry possibly addressed to a mirror...
kulturhack Big Star's aching version of a Velvet Underground classic; with the Cowboy Junkies' "Sweet Jane," one of the few covers that equals the VU original.
kulturhack I'd like to send this one out to the Cheney Regency in its final hour. So long guys; don't let the door hit your collective ass on the way out . . .
kulturhack A meditation on creepy fandom via a laparoscopic look inside royalty. Surreal only if you're unaware of the checkout tabloids or Mark David Chapman.
kulturhack Minimal, catchy and, well, dangerous. A bubblegum anthem for wanna-be dominatrixes. Imagine Debbie Harry fronting The Blue Nile doing "Venus In Furs."

kulturhack In another dimension, Burt Bacharach writes for Peter Murphy, and this is the result. (Which means "Bela Lugosi Is Dead" is left to Dionne Warwick...)
kulturhack Ivo Watts-Russell & the 4AD house band morph Alex Chilton's desolate, Nashville chamber pop (from Big Star/Third) into a stately, Gothic fever dream.
kulturhack Do you want me back? A song so close to the bone it hits marrow; an arrhythmic heartbeat atop the faded shimmer of once-romantic strings now frayed.
kulturhack Before becoming Annie Lennox source material, The Lover Speaks sounded as if Phil Spector cut a record with Bauhaus and The Crystals. Da-Doo-Ron-Goth.
kulturhack A piece of art is finished when nothing else can be removed. St. Exupery said that, and Blue Nile members evidently have it tattooed on their scalps.
kulturhack Jimmy Scott on the other side of a 15-year hiatus, prying open an Elton John/Bernie Taupin chestnut and finding something achingly beautiful inside.
kulturhack Ferry before an unforgiving mic at the live-in-studio As Time Goes By sessions. Proof that beneath the vibrato, he approaches Jimmy Scott's greatness.
kulturhack Major Tom tethered to earth; "Space Oddity" played out in empty train stations; Eliot rather than Kubrick; the Thin White Duke morphed into Prufrock.
