Mid-Life Crisis Songs #64: 49


Do you feel completely abandoned and lost?
Ah, that's one of the great questions
Are you falling apart? Ahaha...

Not my words, just excerpts from today's featured tune, from Paddy McAloon's only solo album*, I Trawl The Megahertz, a very weird offshoot of the Prefab Sprout world, but more listenable with every passing year.

(It's recently been re-issued and repackaged as an actual Prefab Sprout release... which I suppose is fair enough, since Paddy is The Sprout.)

I'll choose one more line then let you listen to the whole thing... while I go away and cry into my pillow, as is only appropriate.

If you're in pain, music can work on the level of anaesthetic


  1. "One good thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain" ( "Trenchtown Rock by Bob Marley)

    "Music is your only friend, Until the end" (The Doors "When The Music's Over")

  2. Happy birthday, Rol. Have a good day.

  3. Happy Birthday Rol. Spring is upon us when your birthday comes along so that’s a big positive.

    Hope you have a lovely day - Wish I could turn the clock back to 49!

  4. Just listened to the whole song. It is weird but it kinda works. Not really birthday material though.

  5. Belated birthday wishes Rol, hope you have a good weekend in which to celebrate your youthfulness. Like Alyson, wish I could turn the clock back to 49, so I'm jealous!
