A slice of 'Life'

Last weekend, after an ill-advised doomscroll, I was feeling a little down... walking along Avenue A, a cyclist went by with a speaker attached to his messenger bag. This song by the Damned was playing... which I hadn't heard in years. A fleeting moment that lifted my mood. From the under-appreciated Strawberries LP from 1982, this is "Life Goes On."

Sounds very un-Damned compared to their heavy punk numbers or their goth-psychedelia stylings. Dave Vanian is possibly the most underrated singer of that that generation (circa 1977).
