Word + Song of the Day - June 17, 2009

Your word of the day is nonage, which basically means being of an age when you are too young to vote or sign a contract. So it means immaturity, a state I reside in more frequently than I care to admit.

The Song of the Day is one I discovered in my nonage - Simple Minds' Speed Your Love to Me. The music is as urgent as the title suggests. US success and large stadiums lay ahead for the minds, but they never sounded this compelling again.In fact, the whole first side - yes, first side; I'm a vinyl junkie - of Sparkle in the Rain, the album that features this song gives me more pure joy than anything by U2. Find yourself puzzled by that? Just wait until I unload unpopular music opinions I hold.
