Fabulousity: The Blue Nile

Jefitoblog posts a marvelous primer today on one of the most underrated bands of all time, The Blue Nile. I've been a fan since their first album, A Walk Across The Rooftops, in 1983; their art-rock sensibilities and soaring melodies are really unparalleled in my experience. Jefitoblog has links to multiple song downloads and great videos, including their immortal track "Tinseltown in the Rain." I'll do something a little different: here's Blue Nile singer Paul Buchanan duetting with Annie Lennox (who covered The Blue Nile's "Downtown Lights" on her album Medusa) in a plaintive version of Eurythmics' "Here Comes The Rain Again." Heaven....
