No idea why, but this popped up in my YouTube feed yesterday. Hadn't thought of the song in decades. This one's not only catchy AF but also features what's gotta be the greatest bass line in the history of synth pop.

I mean, say what you will about synth pop generally or Kajagoogoo in particular, but that skinny fucker could play!


And then I had one of those "long-time King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto got his start in Mr. Mister" moments. Turns out the co-writer and bassist on Too Shy is Nick Beggs, who did bass, guitar and vocals on a ton of Steve Hackett's Genesis Revisited concerts. I saw Beggs myownself in 2018 as bassist/singer with Steven Wilson's solo band.


On a totally unrelated note, did I hear someone mention Scorpio by Dennis Coffey and the Detroit Guitar Band, featuring the late, great Bob Babbitt on bass? I thought so! Here ya go.

Since Ive heard Nightcore Ive been fascinated with song speed/bpm and how it affects the song. Like for me Too Shy sounds best at 1.25 speed, oddly Sleep Together sounds good from .75 to 1.75, my guess is the range of fast drums and long string notes gives it a lot more room to shift around, and Scorpio is great at 1 with a DNB style beat at 1.5.

New stuff from Transatlantic, which features Neal Morse (Spock's Beard), Roine Stolt (Flower Kings), Pete Trewavas (Marillion), and Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Sons of Apollo, Liquid Tension Experiment, and a host of others).

I turned 15 the year that album came out and it was a big part of the soundtrack of my life.

I know. I'm living in the Past.
But it was so comfy, back then.
