Bananas is no demon boozer monkey in fact it was a Christmas eve (24/12) and the whole tribe decided to go and invade a local pub (no there not monkey suits) and what did they play ? Luka by Suzanne Vega.
Luka is a song about child abuse, it was a hit of hers some time ago. It still holds up and as a ape whom likes most of her music [when she remembers the lyrics live*] but its not a happy song.
Its nice to know that the odd things i like are still being played ? to those whom might not have heard of her. i think that validates her talent and although i find Luka to be not one of her best it shows that while many songs are written not all get played a long time after there release.
I hope she gets paid for it rather than loose the money in the record industry thinks its due.
* flat fizzy drinks [horrible] where also on offer at the venue in shepherds bush.
