This is one of the songs getting a lot of radio play recently and I really dig it.



I particularly like the wordplay in the chorus:

"when you say you won't forget me
I can tell you that's not true
'cause every day since you left me
I've thought less and less of you"


Nice little double entendre there.

Also I really love the bass in this song.

Lots of good popular music out there right now.

what is a LTD?




I can't stop listening to the Artic Monkeys older stuff.

LTD basically means 'Limited' and has been tacked onto several ford models to denote a higher priced interior package.

In Oz, an LTD is:


There was a story that LTD as used by Ford Australia meant Lincoln Type Design, despite being based on the XA series Ford Falcon.

Well that's an artists conception, Ford used the ploy world wide. But Oz has been a huge market for Ford. Lots of cool looking cars were designed there and only a few of them ever even made it to the states.

Like the Ford Capri which I first saw in an Apocalypse movie. It was like a cool smaller version of the Mustang.  It came to the states much later than you boys had it.

If it could have competed with the Japanese offerings ... ah but who the fuck am I kidding here, it was trash. Almost as bad as the Pinto. A pretty shape with no substance.

Re: Current Earworms Reply #70 on: December 01, 2013, 01:08:05 AM
I would like to say that I have not seen a single Capri, Pinto, Gremlin, or Vega on the US roadway in many years.

They were designed from the get go to be disposable.

My 61 Falcon is parked in my back yard. Currently registered non op, but actually fully Op from a drivable perspective.

I have decided it needs to rest. So mountain biking in the winter looks promising. Been doing it for a month now.

I have another car, an 81 Malibu, I may break down and go visit it.

Come to think of it I haven't seen a Grenada or a Chevette on the road for years either.

I see Capris around here all the time.

Actually that LTD model was built and sold here, there's still a few of them around. It's a very accurate drawing. I'd love to get one and restore it. The Falcon model that it was derived from  is highly sought after now, particularly the coupe. An average XA model couple will set you back at least $20k, XB models nearly $30K. The Mad Max car was an XB model coupe. XC Cobra's can go for as high as $100k.

The original Capri was based on the British designed Escort of the late 60's, and went through 3 generations. There was an Australian designed Capri based on the Mazda 323 platform of the late 1980's and sold in the US as Mercury Capri, but it was plagued with quality and design problems, so didnt sell that many there. Strangely, there's still quite a few still on the road here, and they are popular with teenaged girls, despite being over 20 years old.

Capris here were boy racer cars, before all the hot hatches took over. Now they're probably mostly driven by guys who were wannabe boy racers but couldn't afford one back then.

Re: Current Earworms Reply #74 on: December 03, 2013, 07:17:29 PM
I always thought they looked pretty cool.

Thanks for the history Mosh, I actually never realized the Mad Max car was a Falcon. So much different looking from everything here in the states.

Si, totally different car. I suspect the one you're thinking about is this:


This is the one I mentioned above: http://www.capriconvertible.com/

That said, apparently Ford are reviving the Capri name again, with this:



Re: Current Earworms Reply #76 on: December 04, 2013, 01:47:56 PM
Nice! I always liked them, my dad didn't. But he felt that way about most British cars, he was a fan of cars from the continent.

I really like the look of that, though. Looks like a hot hatch version of an Aston. Give it a decent engine and handling, RWD and I'll totally buy one when I hit the EuroMillions.

Re: Current Earworms Reply #77 on: December 05, 2013, 04:31:04 PM
It wont be RWD, probably based on the Focus platform... I'm not sure about the looks either, Capri's are long and sleek, this looks rather chunky.

When it's a Kit Kat, sure... but a car called Capri? Not so much.

I'm leaning in the direction of annoying. I think our Nitya may have a bit of a crush.

but I like his references to Notts.

Yeah I can understand that. He sings/talks in a strange way.

I like most of his other songs but I really love that one in particular. I love fast lyrics like that.

As it happens, I'm considering buying a car in Mansfield. That's somewhere in your neck of the woods, isn't it?

Yep, it's close by. When? And what type of car?

How come you'll be buying it from there?



Re: Current Earworms Reply #88 on: December 11, 2013, 08:46:11 PM

Seems like a pretty regional interest. His songs have no reference to the bigger global picture.

Even Miley's  Wreaking ball seems to have more relevance. And that is pretty sad.
