Song of the Day #748

Song of the Day: Just for Love, words and music by Peter Murphy (see "Subway") features the scintillating violin work of Hugh Marsh and the rhythmic pulse of tabla player Shankar. This superb track, with its Middle Eastern influences, is an innovative highlight of Peter's 'luminescent' album, "Dust" (audio clip at that link).

You truck, or you do not!"

I've been following your songs of the day for a long time now, and I just wanted to thank you for opening up my mind to so many different genres of music. Thanks especially for turning me onto Peter Murphy. I had no idea who he was or what he was about, but the two songs you highlighted gave me incentive to purchase the CDs and they are both wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!

Nancy, you're welcome. I confess that I knew nothing about Peter Murphy until a couple of years ago, and my exploration of his body of work has made me a real fan. There is a lot to explore, so enjoy!

And, JD, nice to see you around these parts again; thanks for your encouragement and support.
