TOM WAITS - BAD AS ME
Try this. Once the melodies get into your head you whistle the tunes...
Sure they could rock. But they wrote this and it is pure Prog Rock bliss.

You're most welcome!
Everyday I have been playing "This Is America." Time for something just as spirited...
I've never heard this album. Its time to listen to it.
Wow it's full of exhilarating moments, awesome!
The entire time it's an adrenaline rush, absolutely nuts.
A song for programmers. It starts off with "Hello World".
I just heard a snippet of stuff I liked enough that I bought the CD that contains it. This happens to me at least three times every two decades and it's never, never, ever music from outside the western classical/baroque/orchestral/instrumental genres. Except this time it is. I was watching "Killing Eve". It's a BBC drama series except that it is unavailable here in UK as it's made by BBC Worldwide for commercial gain. It's interesting to me because I usually absolutely hate modern BBC TV drama due to the rotten sound quality (muffled voices but terribly loud "background" music) and the unmistakable sense that the producers think the audience are a bunch of fucking plebs, proles, dimwits and numbskulls who can only cope with simple concepts and who need their emotional responses prompted and coded by very, very crap overly loud muzak. I had got to the point that I thought the BBC was no longer capable of producing quality drama where the dramatic tension is created by characters and dialogues and situations rather than extremely obvious and grossly stupid muzakal cues and people shouting loudly. But apparently it is capable, but reserves these capabilities for people who live in North America. Anyway, I watched the first episode of Killing Eve (thanks Pirate Bay!) and it is brilliant and uses audio judiciously and music sparingly and with wit and delight. One of the tracks played is "When A Woman is Around" by Unloved. It's perfect with this drama. I don't know if it will seem or feel perfect in 5 or 25 years when played without being wrapped around a visual scene but I think it might. Anyway, I found someone on ebay selling a DJ promo copy with extra accompanying disc at half the price of the regular CD so I bought it. He he he.
Now I'm going to watch the second episode of "Killing Eve". Ttfn.
