FlinterFile: Tom Robinson- Listen To The Radio (Atmospherics)


In 1983, Tom Robinson released the song which ment his return to the music scene. He wrote it as an autobiographical song, which tells the story of his success he had in the seventies. However, his band Sector 27 was a disaster, which gave a lot of money problems. Tom Robinson went to Hamburg, and later to East Berlin, escaping the taxman and staying under the radar, learning German. He played with a band, and a few years later came back with this song, written with Peter Gabriel, and it was played a lot on the radio. Eventually it ended on number 39 in the UK chart. Enjoy

Song of the day: Genesis- Jesus He Knows Me

Hello everybody!!!

Here’s another song of the day, with a nice clip!
The song is made by Genesis, a music group which is active since the sixties, and it was active until 2010.
And… wait! In Genesis, there was an artist we already know! Peter Gabriel, from the stopmotion video of Sledgehammer!
That’s nice, isn’t it?

Well, tomorrow.. Oh wait! I forgot the song! The song of the day is Jesus He Knows Me.
It’s one of the later songs of Genesis, from 1992.

Tomorrow a new song, and since the weather is so bad, it’s going to rain!

“Huh?? What does he mean?”
“How am I supposed to know that? He’s so cryptic, I mostly don’t know what song is the song of the day!”

Song of the day: Peter Gabriel- Steam

Hello everyone,

I’ve got another stunning video and song for you…

The new song of the day is made by Peter Gabriel. In one of my first songs of the day, Peter Gabriel was song of the day with Sledgehammer.Sledgehammer is an amazing clip, but Steam, another song, has that as well.

Listen, watch, and have fun!!!

Song of the day: Peter Gabriel- Sledgehammer

Hello everyone,

Today’s song of the day is a good song, but even better is the music video with it. It’s made with the stop-motion technique, which creates a very special effect.

It’s the best known stop-motion video, it’s Peter Gabriel with Sledgehammer!

I like this song very much, but admire the video. I think it’s better than having some almost naked girls dancing around: It’s just not original!

This is, and I hope we’ll see more of these original and beautiful video’s the coming years, because I’m tired of all those almost naked girls.

Tomorrow a new song!
