"No, I can't do it, I can't sing." That is a phrase that irks me every time. Every. Single. Time. In reality, there is a small percentage that actually can't sing, and it's usually due to physical damage. That part of the population I'll exclude from this.

The musical output that John Coltrane produced in his lifetime is staggering, especially, considering that the saxophone player and composer’s life was cut short by liver cancer at the age of forty.
I used to live in this apartment with these huge floor-to-ceiling windows, so I could see everyone on the street, and the building across the street, and best of all I had a perfect view of the horizon. At night I used to pull up a chair right up to the cold pane so my knees just brushed the glass. I’d pull out the book Frankenstein and turn off all the lights, so that I could read my book to the light of the sunset. I used to think of it as a ritual, a lullaby for me, and for the sun. I always enjoyed the experience of reading during the sunset, and that I had these moments to myself and nobody could take them from me.

Making quiet music for a small audience that never got bigger, Connie Converse was a sharply intelligent and fiercely independent, albeit lonely woman who sang throughout the fifties and into the early sixties. You can hear the brooding depression in her music– ornate and poetic lyrics, melancholy flats, minors and sevens, and intricate and vast scenery. Her voice was somehow both delicate and tremendous, a vessel of immeasurable pain nobody will ever be given the opportunity to understand.
With enough hard work, talent and determination, any musician can create one great song. Sometimes one hit single is all you need to make an impression that will last a lifetime. That is what these one hit wonders of the 1950s and 1960s did. Here are ten of the best from those decades.
“I haven’t understood a bar of music in my life, but I have felt it.”
From the first note on the French horn I find 30 years melting away and I am making toast on a summer morning at an eye level grill. I can smell the gas from the cooker and the warm bread changing colour while producing the amazing white bread toast aroma. The gas meter clicks noisily, hungry for coins. I see the sun picking its way slowly down the wall twenty feet from the kitchen window and know that I will be swimming in the sea later with my friends.
