Song Lyric Sunday 12/2/18 – Famous Last Words

How ironic that this week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme is last when this is actually the first such post for me from my new HP Pavilion 15z Touch running Linux Mint 19 “Tara” sub-version Cinnamon. My old MacBook Pro finally gave up the ghost and after gettting continuously frustrated with Apple over the years I finally decided to part ways with them after 15 years as a loyal, dedicated Mac user. I guess in a way it fits the theme then, because that was my last Mac ever. After using Mint for a few days, I’m a Linux convert all the way – no more corporate BS from Microsoft or Apple.

Anyway, I digress. Last. Well, I had the perfect song come to mind straight away. It shouldn’t be too surprising which one either. I’ve done good in that I’ve been a little more diverse for SLS lately, but it’s time I come back to my old favorite band again because I haven’t in awhile. So here then is the song “Famous Last Words,” a 1989 song from the album The Seeds of Love by TFF (written by Roland Orzabal and Nicky Holland). The lyrics are in the video so I’ll not transcribe them here.

That’s it for this week. Hope you enjoyed and catch you next time!

  1. Linux is awesome. My last bf built a Linux system, and then spent his time ‘breaking’ it and teaching himself how to fix it. That’s Mr Geek for you.
    I used to listen to quite a bit of Tears for Fears back in the day, but I don’t recall this song. Thanks for the re-introduction.

    Jingle Jangle Jungle


    • Hah. Mr. Geek indeed!

      I’m definitely in love. As much as I loved my Macs (especially for creative/artsy stuff) I’ve already found Linux equivalents for iMovie and GarageBand that are just as easy and intuitive.
