MY EAR WORM FOR TODAY- ‘AFTER THE FIRE’- ROGER DALTREY

Roger Daltrey – After The Fire (1985, Vinyl) - Discogs

The Sounds Playing In My Head Today- ‘After The Fire’- Roger Daltrey.

There are day- well it happens almost every day – a song gets stuck in my head. Sometimes it isn’t even anything I’ve heard that day. I was flipping channels last night trying to find something to watch- the Pirates had the night off. I landed on Turner Classic Movies and there was Dom DeLuise- and the line ‘ laughing at Dom Deluise’ from Roger Daltrey’s 1985 album Under A Raging Moon.

While I am a big fan of The Who- this is the only Roger Daltrey solo album I have ever bought. I saw Daltrey once in concert by himself and it was a good concert. “After The FIre’ was written by Pete Townshend- and Daltrey released it as a single- it peaked at #48. It was a song I always liked. So many times the song in my head is one I want to get rid of but in this case- no- I love the song and have enjoyed it ratting around up there today.

  1. Pretty good tune. It’s interesting while I really dig The Who, unlike The Beatles, I’ve hardly listened to any of their members’ solo albums.

    I did take a look at Daltrey’s last solo album “As Long As I have You” from June 2018, which I liked overall. When it comes to Pete Townshend, I’m mostly familiar with “White City: A Novel,” his excellent fourth solo album from November 1985.

  2. I like this one a lot Hans. I didn’t know Pete wrote this but it makes sense. Wasn’t the title track about Moon?

  3. I don’t recall hearing this but, I like it. Very 80s…

    Oh GOD, I know about ear worms. I’ve had Sarah McLachlan’s “Possession” stuck in my head for days.
