Song of the Week: "Memo from Turner"

Mick Jagger and Ry Cooder off of the Performance soundtrack. I've never seen the movie, but I first heard this on an ABKCO collection of Rolling Stones singles. It was a boxed set; I used to check it out from the library and I made a tape of my favorite London-era Stones songs, and this was definitely one of them. Great stuff that never gets old for me.

Performance is a must see - as much for Nic Roeg's camerawork as a fascinating glimpse into what-could-have-been with Donald Cammel's career. Great script, including some fantastic one-liners (also used as samples in Big Audio Dynamite's song E=mc2). Yeah, so now you'll probably watch Performance and think "Meh." to which I will possibly say "Mleurgh!" but will continue to read your blog anyway :)
