        You know that old what’s your pórn name thing?
        I heard a new twist on it the other day, your Victorian novel baddie name
        It’s your grandads occupation and a word you know but never fully understand

        Hi, I’m Mortician Vicissitude btw

      You should hear my Sigur Rós singing. Haunting is one word for it. Hljómalind is a particular favourite to warble.

    I find my autumn mood usually lifts on hearing Van Morrison’s Evening Meditation, from his Sense of Wonder album.

    Something in it always brings to mind relaxing by a turf fire with a tipple after a day traipsing over crackling leaves with a refreshing bite in the air.

    Of course, Van was no doubt meditating over far more exotic escapades when he wrote it…but it’s autumn to me

        He’s entered twice. AHEM.
        Unfortunately that means Otis is disqualified. Them’s the rules.

    I find my My Autumn mood usually lifts on hearing King Harvest by the band.

    I can clearly remember being handed that album going back to school, staring at the cover of ’em all wrapped up looking soaked and cold, then spending the next few months buying and listening to everything I could.

    Trying to explain how cool the song structure of King Harvest was at a Halloween party was a downside. Especially considering my analysis was ” but it’s kinda backwards kinda in a way”.

    What a band…

      yeah maybe. I’m ambivalent on the gloaming. Terribly cool or terribly naff? And iarla ó lionáird… I’m not gay but if I was I’d definitely give him one (or permit him to give me one, not sure how it would pan out)

          It’s allPeterGabriel for me these daze, but you cannot beat about the Kate Bush.

          Don’t give up.

          There’s a video about it.

        2. Brother Barnabas

          Nah, I don’t have a thing for him or anything. there’d have to be a lot of drink taken. and even then it would depend on who else was around.

    While I’m glad no-one nominated california dreaming, I’m surprised that raglan road didn’t get a look in so that’s my nomination. Luke Kelly, a summer of stalking and the chilly reality of a love gone cold as a corpse. Every sort of goose bump in one go.

    Van’s Purple Heather is so autumnal it’s like “a horn-shaped basket jammed it with an insanely ornate assortment of shellacked vegetables”. And it comes right after a song called “Autumn Song”. And it starts with the line “Well the summertime has gone and the leaves are gently turning”. It’s decorative gourd season!

    Excuse me…
    Who sets the criteria for these, eh,.. ‘topics’?

    I’m being serious, you keep pedalling backwards.
    You can’t see…
    You don’t look…

    I’m drunk.
    Feck off.

    Hello. Here are two Autumn related songs which my brain has not consciously associated with Autumn:

    Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground
    Harvest Moon
