This morning was rainy and I felt I was caught in a whirlwind of nostalgia. I found myself wanting to listen to Lloyd Cole.
Lloyd has been active since 1984. He’s an English singer and songwriter, known for his role as lead singer of Lloyd Cole and the Commotions from 1984 to 1989. Eventually, he went solo. The last album he’s released was 2010’s Broken Record.
Fun Fact: In 2006, Scottish band Camera Obscura released the song “Lloyd, I’m Ready to Be Heartbroken” as an answer song to Cole’s 1984 hit “(Are You) Ready to Be Heartbroken?”.
Here’s a fantastic acoustic rendition of No Blue Skies.
Since I love Camera Obscura, I am going to include “Lloyd, I’m Ready to Be Heartbroken.”
