Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

There must be lots of songs with this chord progression

Shortened link for this post is http://is.gd/MSfGoX

...or whatever it's called.

I've been listening to 3wk Underground radio (basically, weirdness mixed in with summery 60s pop) and heard a song called "Riverside" by America. It immediately made me think of Tim Bisley rescuing Daisy Steiner at the end of series 2 of Spaced because it sounded so like a section of Lemon Jelly's "The Staunton Lick".

Obviously this is probably a pretty common section of tune and probably appears all over the place, but I do like this bit.

Using the #t=seconds format you can jump straight to the relevant bit in the links below, or enjoy the full songs in the embedded videos further down. I realised I probably couldn't get this on Twitter because shortening these links tends to mangle the #t=11s bit.

Right-click, open in a new tab :-)

America - Riverside

Lemon Jelly - The Staunton Lick

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
