The Wheel of Your Tune works like this; I metaphorically turn my spinning top to reveal a random letter and number. The letter relates to an artist or the name of an album in my collection and the number relates to the track by that artist or on that album. This week’s spin landed on Q9.
It really wouldn’t be right if I didn’t give this yet another plug! I’ve mentioned this album already several times since its release. The second time I listened to it I was clearing out and cleaning my kitchen cupboards. I had a little cry at least twice. I know a few of you aren’t fans and I understand why. It’s not a masterpiece, nor a classic but my heart quickens and I feel light-headed listening to parts of it, this song especially produces a strong emotional response. The longing and yearning it portrays tells a story like any classic literature capturing a tale of love and loss. I think that’s why I love it so much; to me it feels like the story in a book I would adore.
So, my Q9 track is Villains of Circumstance by Queens of the Stone Age (I’m posting an pared down version as performed on Later with Jools Holland – just because it makes my spine tingle. The album version is also very lovely).
What’s your Q9?
