No? Hmmm. Let’s fix that.
There. Don’t you feel better now?
John, scarcely a day goes by without my having some Bryan Ferry, but thanks all the same.
Well, that was a bit short — kind of a tease, really…
By the way, if you’ve seen the youtube of Bill O’Reilly going ballistic on the set of Inside Edition, check out this homage (not safe for work). Kind of a Nine Inch Nails O’Reilly…
John, I just discovered your books and your blog, and am recommending both of them to everyone I know. If you like to read absolutely gushing reviews, check out my post for today at necromancyneverpays.blogspot.com.
That’s strange, John H — when I play it, it’s full length. Checking —
Is this a Pimpery day today??????
I’ve tried reloading and I only get about 30s worth of audio…
Changed the track. This one should work.
Yeah John… I got it all THIS TIME…
That one works…
John is Brandy in your heading?
Butcher of Lennon and Dylan.
This time and last, I got a little banner from http://www.imeem.com, saying “Uh-oh! It looks like the song you are looking for is not available, please double-check that the embed information is correct. 404”
Using Firefox 3b5 on an Intel Mac Pro running 10.5 Leopard, if that is useful to anybody.
I saw Ferry in concert a few weeks ago in Tallinn, Estonia.
The dude still has it. Best show I’ve seen in a couple years.
Ahhh … Life is all better now. Thanks, John. :-)
Hmm… a bit jarring , as I’ve usually heard this performed as a smoky/bluesy/Ray-Charles-meets-Van-Morrison number , but a good listen all the same. Thank you!
 Rather like hearing Billy Idol crooning Christmas carols…
 Shout out to Brian James, right here in MtV.
One of the biggest disappointments I’ve ever had was when the Southgate House in Northern Kentucky advertised that Bryan Ferry would be playing in their ballroom several years ago. I was ecstatic, and bored my husband to tears with the number of times I listened to “Oh Yeah” the week leading up to the show–
Imagine my disappointment when the night of the show, there was a sign up that read, “Tonight: Northern Kentucky folksinger Bryan Ferry. We apologize if you were expecting Roxy Music Bryan Ferry.”
I did not stay for the folk singer.
Bring on that new Roxy album, Bryan!
This is the only song I was previously aware of by Brian Ferry, coming as it does at the end of (the American version of) one of my favorite movies…
Oh, that’s no fair. He can embed an iMeem in his post, but I can’t in the comment? Fooey.
