There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

by The Smiths

Ok so the time has finally come for my final jam.So what to choose? Well as cliched as it is hopefully TIMJ will be a light that will never go out......even if we can't post on here anymore.It's been great to discover so much great music & it's lovely to know there are so many people out there with as much of a passion for music & fabulous tunes as I have.I'm off to give God's Jukebox a try so maybe see you on the other side.......if not it's a been a blast.TTFN

Across 110th Street

Across 110th Street

by Bobby Womack

I've given up on saying this is my last jam as they keep changing things so instead this week's jam is in honour of the fact I will be in New York this week & at some point I may be going across 110th Street.....then again maybe not either way it's a great tune.......

Long After Tonight Is All Over

by Jimmy Radcliffe

Ok so a little earlier in the week than I was hoping but here's my last jam & it was the last song played at Wigan Casino so it somehow seemed appropriate......I just want to say how much I have enjoyed my time on here & thanks to everyone who have helped to introduce me to so many great tunes......if anyone fancies following me I'm on Let's Loop & my link is http://www.letsloop.com/devious31......but for now I bid you all adieu......it's been a blast......

Move On Up

Move On Up

by Curtis Mayfield

Ok so I was looking through my previous jams & it dawned on me that I had never chosen my all time favourite song! What better time to remedy that than using it as my penultimate jam? So here it is the best song ever written......sung by the best singer ever......IMHO of course......

St Anthony: An Ode to Anthony H Wilson [Spoken Word]

by M ike Garry & Joe Duddell

Devastated that things are changing on here.It has been so good to discover & share such good music with good people.Anyway only a few more Jams to go.....this week's Jam is a new track & is more of a poem but a worthwhile one dedicated to a man pivotal in the history of British & consequently World music.....the video is a who's who of people from the Manchester arts scene.....anyway the final countdown begins.......
