Gah. It's impossible to choose just one example of Tony Clarkin's genius, but here you go:

Gah. Keep changing my mind - but in the end this wins:

Quote
Tony Clarkin (Magnum "Days Of No Trust")

And music recorded
Might influence dreams
But headlines are courted
By stretch limousines
Pictures of plenty
Are stuck to the wall
For heads that are empty
Brains on the floor
Can't take any more

Someone is shouting
Revolution is here
He'll climb any mountain
For his selfish career
The truth's not a curtain
To be drawn back and forth
It's a flame that keeps burning
Everlasting torch

In these days of no trust
Evermore hostility
We're all living under the same old sky
We're all living telling the same old lie
In these days of no trust

If only because it is the song that caught my attention in 1988 and drew me into a world that has never let me go.
