I can see why Baht doesn't like it - and it is not my normal kind of thing - but it just has something joyous about it which I'm enjoying and find that it's stuck in my head.


After those hospital photo's you have to wonder a little :? I fear he may be clearing the cupboards and giving things away before the end... how gloomy is that? :lol: ......... Seriously though, there seems to have been debate and rumors regarding his health for years, and he's still here. I think (hope) it's more in a period of transition, rather than anything more sinister, but I do fear this may be an end to David the musician

I can see/hear why he's not keen as well, and I agree with some of his points, but, like you I find the track joyous and can simply enjoy it for what it is... a nice slice of melodic pop, and there is nothing wrong with that!

With a different mix and properly mastered this could sit well with a lot of his output... and with some different musicians it could be something of a classic....

I choose to believe that Mr. Sylvian is simply revisiting some of his past work as part of an evaluation for future work or releases... delusional? Perhaps but I live in hope.

Um...could you please elaborate? Are you actually implying that DS is very sick and about to die?

No! :lol:

But, he did publish a series of photo's from a hospital on twitter, including a portrait of him in a medical gown (which seems to have been removed)... some were under the title 'what's happening'. They do have a gloomy, sinister air about them, but I think the one of him was titled 'Nothing to worry about' or he commented that he was ok.

There has been rumour and speculation regarding his health since the cancelled shows some year back.

Personally I like to think he's fine :D

A number of years ago, it was reported that DS had back trouble. This commonly reoccurs depending on the severity of the original injury. Perhaps he exacerbated an earlier injury? This could certainly warrant a hospital visit. Just a speculation.

So this track and the other two on SoundCloud have been removed, as have all reference made to them on Twitter and FB :?

What is the man doing?

Dear oh dear...well I hope he's not reading this forum and taking umbrage at our idle speculation...

Maybe this is what happens when your manager retires and it gets harder to keep track of things? Perhaps there have been issues with publishing rights etc?

I suppose the only comfort is that he has done this kind of thing before hasn't he - taking down his Facebook account and then bringing it back after a while.

Unless it's something to do with rights, there would be no need to remove them.

But I respect his putting them up, even though briefly. Let's hope he continues to do such account creation/uploads for further tracks, even if they too are only there for a short time.

That is the most likely scenario... who knows, maybe he's having a bit of a publishing battle, and putting them out like that was an 'up-yours'... or perhaps he's just fickle and decided he didn't want them in the public domain after all... or, maybe he's just gone mad :lol:

I wish he would say something... occasionally :?
