Great songwriters...

Post by wontgetfooledagain on Thu Apr 30, 2009 10:04 am

I wanted to share a video of one of my favorite songwriters. Justin Currie.. who in my opinion.. is the greatest singer/songwriter of my generation, even though most people have never heard of him. I don't consider Dylan to be from my generation.. otherwise he would get the nod.

He is the former lead singer/songwriter for the band Del Amitri.. who had a few top 40 hits back in the 90's. But don't let that fool you, Currie is not your typical "pop star". The reason most people haven't heard of him.. is because he usually doesn't write your typical "pop songs"... even though he is more than capable of doing that as well.

Anyway... this song .. "No, Surrender" is off his first solo album, that came out last year. For some reason, on youtube the song is split into two videos. The video is very unique btw... it was filmed in one shot.. no cut-aways or edits. And also .. his vocal is "live".. not mimed. He hates doing videos.. and wanted to do it his own way.. and I love it.

Here are the links...

I'd also like to get input from other people regarding their favorites.. especially if it is someone not well known. I'm always interested in hearing something new... and fresh. Which is why I rarely listen to the radio anymore.
