“Courage” by New Model Army
from the album B-Sides and Abandoned Tracks
We walk every morning in silence
Past the mills on Whetley Lane
Where the lights went out for the very last time
And they never came on again
The spokesmen all shred crocodile tears
In the glory of the News at Ten
But the proudest eyes are long since dry
And they’re never going to cry again
Dear Friend, I salute your courage and I toast to your health
And I wish you all the luck in the whole wide world
May you never be broken like they say you will
Oh man do I love music games.
For example, did you know that I was the first person ever to write about the original Guitar Hero? It’s true — I was down at RedOctane doing a completely unrelated story and they asked if I wanted to see the game.
I did. And I got to write about it before anyone else in the world. I still think that’s pretty neat.
Anyway, that’s not what I came here to talk about. I came to talk about my review of Guitar Hero World Tour, which has just gone up at Green Pixels. Head on over and check it out, won’t you?
Oh lookie, Green Pixels has just put up my 10 Crucial Rock Band Downloads feature. This was one of those where you look around in the middle of doing the research and think, “I can’t believe I get paid to do this.”
Let’s fight about my choices. But over there, not here.
