I'm not a massive fan of Echo & The Bunnymen, though I can see why this song was so influential on British rock artists: the jangling strings to begin the song, those swirling synths and the sheets of electric guitar fuzz, along with the commanding vocals, give the song a certain mystique, but with a hint of danger:

Last night I watched Hitsville: The Making Of Motown.
The Making of Motown is a story about how Motown Records in Detroit was built and how it impacted the world during the American civil rights era. Fascinating stuff with more music stars than you could imagine. While Motown recorded black artists they employed blacks, whites and women in managerial positions, a first for that time. If you like music this is a must.

I watched it on ABC iview.

The Andrews Sisters. Yes, they really were sisters. My mum had a lot of Andrews Sisters records and as little kid she would stack them up for me. I would sit in front of the old mono HMV Radiogram with the lovely warm sound and listen for hours to all her Andrews Sisters records. They started singing together when Patty (the lead singer) was 7. She does a great job on this version of the song, which is taken from the Abbot and Costello movie "Buck Privates".

Got to just over an hour and the bloody thing packed it in, wasn't able to get it back and will give it another go today but brilliant!
