Take physic, pomp

The Friday OT (special guest post doubleheader edition): U2; Silver and Gold and Led Zeppelin; Over the Hills and Far Away

For reasons that are unnecessary to go into, today’s Friday OT is being run by reader ‘BE’, who was asked for a good song and came up with two great ones, so rather than choose let’s run ’em both with BE’s comments. Enjoy:
Ok, so I was thinking a song both topical to the markets we follow, and also a bit of an obscure but often-overlooked track on one of the best live/tour/soundtrack albums ever…..

Silver and Gold, U2….. and unless I’ve missed my guess, I’ll bet that you’re as much a fan of the 5 min. mark when Edge “plays the blues” as I am!

I don’t often miss a day of IKN, but I do remote work in the Canadian resources sector so I’m occasionally off the grid – hopefully there hasn’t been a U2 tune recently that would rule out the above – if so, here’s a respectable alternate, with no particular relevance to anything other than it’s just such a great tune

Over the Hills and Far Away – Zep – I love Zep! climbed the mountain behind Jimmy’s castle on the shore of Loch Ness back in my reckless youth, same place where they filmed his sequence in the Song Remains the Same concert film – good times!
