Saw them perform at LV Hilton about 10 years ago, 30 years post P/C release.  Absolutely note perfect, Kate's vocals are sublime :)

Shiny Happy People still makes me shiver.  

 

Which I know is extremely weird.

 

Also, her duet with Iggy Pop on Candy is sublime.

This one ALWAYS makes me happy.    

Marv's post made me think of this.

Not at all.  I could sit and listen to Kate & Michael Stipe harmonize through an entire afternoon ...

 

Released in ''91, the song evokes a period where Bev and I pretty much felt "Shiny Happy".  We had pushed to pull ourselves up from close to nothing, beginning in '85, and by the time of the release we had pulled cobbled together to move into a rental row house in the heart of Philly in '89 and had our purchase offer accepted in '91.   Things were sweeter than ever and we married in '93.

 

Out of Time and Cosmic Thing (B-52's, released '91) saw a lot of play in our house back then.

Thanks for this!  I hadn't come across this previously.

... speaking of "shiver" (termed by some as "psychogenic tremors"), just about anything sung by Bjork absolutely nails that response for me.

 

Appreciation of Bjork's music is apparently an "in the ear of the beholder thing".  I'm immediately carried away by the lilt of her voice; falls absolutely flat in Bev's ears.

As I go to pay for something using my Amex Platinum today, this some song starts to play on the store’s PA system. Anyways, enjoy the yacht rock.
