Television - Days

  • Published: 01 April 2011
  • Up on the high, high hills - with my floating friend -
    Watchin' all the silver - no one can ever spend
    I feel the touch of her hand and all it will erase;
    These footprints I followed tho they followed my every pace -
    Days, be more than all we have.
    No matter how much I cross I always see the same stream.
    I'm standing up on these bridges that are standing in a dream.

      When I first started going to the big central London record stores, you couldn't move for discounted copies of Adventure. Especially the Virgin Megastore-piles of the red vinyl edition for £1.99 or 99p or whatever. I suppose they must have over ordered, and then when it got slated in all the reviews...
      It's like the 2nd Gang of Four album-it sounds great now, but I guess it was a huge letdown to people after Entertainment!
      Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, I didn't buy it in 1981, but that's cos I was 12 and an idiot. I could go on Discogs and see what a mint red vinyl generally goes for now, but there's no hurry.

          My favourite Television song from my favourite Television album. A poem, really. A Poem set to music.

                      Indescribably wonderful track - it has a magnetic quality which makes you want to listen to it over and over again, hundreds of time.

                        This song interweaves guitars like Brian Wilson interweaves vocal arrangements for the Beach Boys; seemingly without a beginning or an end, just beautiful, repeating lines of melody of sheer beauty.

                            boobtuber06 yes, I've seen them with Jimmy Ripp several times; he's good at recreating Llyod's parts but maybe without the danger and thrill of the original (who I was fortunate/old enough to see many times). But by all means, everyone should go.

                            Hi Ma'am (I just saw this on my alert)
                            Jimmy Rip is a great substitute and a hell of a player, and also has been working with Tom for a while. They were great recently live.

                            boobtuber06 Except the lead parts on this tune are played by Richard Lloyd who is no longer with the band.

                                                    Heard this in the background, half listening and thought it was King Creosote.

                                                        Envious because they don't have the talent to write a song this good.

What a gift. I would have no idea how to navigate to find these oldies not even knowing the bands name.  Such an Angel.  Awesome lyrical melody, guitars are amazing the vocals clearly sharing their message. Thrilled to have them brought my way. Do this sharing with people in American great artists creations needed.....lots of healing in our country needs these powerful vibrations. Some one below said this band was way before itstime with such Masterful performance.  : -) Peace. I want to check 'Foxhole'....the Lyrics are very powerful you feel yourself running jumping into one...

                                                                          Yeah his later songs about war such as "Postcard From Waterloo" & "Words From the Front" to me, don't have as much punch. Altho they do bring back memories of the early Reagan era when a lot of Americans including me thought he was going to be more of a war-maker than he turned out to be, instead that came later.

                                                                        • Marc Highliner

I think it adds to the diversity of the album. As it happens, a lot of people - including Richard Lloyd - thought that the LP was uh....too 'nice.'
