Album covers quiz.

An excellent music quiz idea from steer.

There follow ten descriptions of album covers - all ones in my collection (and not *all* dodgy synthpop) and in no particular order. One point for title, one point for artist, naturally.

1) A stylised scene in which a man in a grey forties suit holds a woman in a black dress in a frozen dance pose; behind them, the panelling of a dance hall and a screen, through which we see the shadows of a double bass player, a trumpeter and a vocalist.

2) In the background, a gothic arch looking out onto a series of tower blocks. In the foreground, a young man dressed in luminous white, holding a glowing white ball in front of him.

3) A sepia background with, pinned to it, a poster featuring a young man with glasses and what may be a light attached to his head, who seems to be working on a tangle of machine, wires and tubes.

4) A series of drawn pylons against an orange background, casting shadows across a white floor.

5) A man standing by a window in a bare room lit by a naked lightbulb. Outside the window is a neon sign and a crescent (or possibly partially eclipsed) moon, and reflected in the window the man looking back in at himself.

6) A lake, some mist, a highly ridiculous spiked helmet and a falcon.

7) Three pairs of legs standing on cracked glass underneath which is a photograph of at least thirteen unhappy babies.

8) A slightly blurry photograph of two men, standing side by side, both wearing leather coats, one of whom is also wearing shades and is in the act of slipping a brown envelope into his coat. Behind them is a background of shiny fabric; above them two neon signs.

9) A black cover on which a man with lots of black hair, wearing a huge purple satin affair, crouches and cowers from something above him and to his right, which we can't see.

10) A small child sitting in a white room with his head in his hands.

    So I was just thinking, ugh, I'm too crazy to post another song, why would I even bother anyway, when I was suddenly reminded of a track I had on Now…

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
