"Never Gonna Cry Again" was the debut single release from Eurythmics, taken from their debut album In the Garden. Co-produced by respected krautrock producer Conny Plank, the recordings also featured two members of krautrock band Can. It achieved little commercial success, only #63 in UK.One of the things I love about songs is that they exist outside their background. "Never Gonna Cry Again" exists in the world, exists as 3m05s of melody and rhythm, exists even for those who know nothing about In the Garden, Conny Plank, the UK charts. Whereas the Peloponnesian War can only be remembered in terms of its war-ness, its Peloponnesian-ness, "Never Gonna Cry" can be separated from its conception, its creation, its commercial reception. It can be separated from its singer, composer, and whichever session musician is playing the rinkydink trumpet. Forget everything you know and "Never Gonna Cry" is still a weird and splendid pop song, pulsing and wistful, fiercely determined and hopelessly daft. [buy] Posted by Sean at January 28, 2013 9:34 AM
Coming here, listening to this ridiculously good Eurythmics song and the song above reminded me why I still love this website. I should be here more often again, and you should never stop posting.Posted by Maks at January 31, 2013 4:28 AM
