Welcome To Tunes For Tuesday – Retro Futura Tour Style!
I can’t even explain how excited I am about this Friday’s Retro Futura show at the Greek Theatre!
Many of East Coasters have already put up some great videos (CONCERTCHICK has quite a few) and photos all over the internet. It isn’t often a bill has multiple artists you want to see and today’s featured artists, Midge Ure, is someone I absolutely can’t wait to see live! Midge is not only immensely talented, he’s got a sense of humor and is very engaged in social media.
I’ll admit that I’m still not over the fact that I missed two special Midge Ure shows in New York (#heartinNYbodyinLA) where he played a special acoustic show of “Answers To Nothing”. It seems now that I’m not in NYC, that all of the New Wave artists I love are doing special shows there. Grrr!
But I digress. Today’s tune “Cold Cold Heart” (it was hard not to choose “One Small Day” or “Vienna” especially learning from Mad World Book that it was a mondegreen that inspired the latter title – read here for details).
“Cold Cold Heart” isn’t actually from the 1980′s but I was searching YouTube and was reminded of how much I really like this song. Also, how could someone born on Valentine’s Day not feature a song about a heart?!
The video is both funny and touching. I love the diversity and tongue in cheek humor throughout. Ignore the fact that the soundtrack and the lip synch are off because there are some great tidbits. Hope you enjoy and I’ll give a review of the concert next week!
