ΚΑΛΗ ΧΡΟΝΙΑ

Death Cab For Cutie - The New Year



Από το Transatlanticism [2003]
__________
so this is the new year.
and i don't feel any different.
the clanking of crystal
explosions off in the distance (in the distance).

so this is the new year
and I have no resolutions
for self assigned penance
for problems with easy solutions

so everybody put your best suit or dress on
let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
as thirty dialogues bleed into one

i wish the world was flat like the old days
then i could travel just by folding a map
no more airplanes, or speedtrains, or freeways
there'd be no distance that can hold us back.

there'd be no distance that could hold us back (x2)

so this is the new year (x4)

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band - Anthem / Next

Δύο από τα τραγούδια που μας άφησε ο μοναδικός Alex Harvey , που έφυγε από καρδιακή προσβολή το 1982, μιά μέρα μόλις πριν κλείσει τα 47 . Το Next (διασκευή τραγουδιού του Jaques Brel) προέρχεται από το ομώνυμο (Next -1973-) ενώ το Anthem από το The Impossible Dream -1974-. Οι The Sensational Alex Harvey Band επανενώθηκαν το 2004 και συνεχίζουν αρκετά πετυχημένα, όμως σίγουρα λείπει η μορφή του Alex Harvey.

Anthem

=======ΤSAHB======
If you don't put me on trial
Then why don't you turn me loose
You can throw the key away
Let me chase the wild goose
Your progress is my desire
You shouldn't do me wrong
Although it's true I'm worried now
I won't be worried long
Telling stories to the peacocks
Selling systematically
Just a counterfeit engraving
Of the way you used to be
Just another one-way number
Just another two-way song
Although it's true I'm worried now
I won't be worried long

Don't encourage me to murder
'Cause it pays to advertise
Don't treat me with suspicion
Don't tell me no more lies
You know I love your company
You shouldn't do me wrong
Although it's true I'm worried now
I won't be worried long
Although it's true I'm worried now
I won't be worried long

-----------
Next


=======ΤSAHB======

Naked as sin
an army towel, covering my belly
Some of us weep, some of us howl
Knees turn to jelly
But Next! Next!
I was just a child
A hundred like me
I followed a naked body
a naked body followed me
Next! Next!
I was just a child when my innocence was lost
in a mobile army whorehouse
a gift of the army, free of cost
Next! Next! Next!
Me, I really would have liked a little bit of tenderness
Maybe a word, maybe a smile, maybe some happiness
But Next! Next!
Oh it was not so tragic
and heaven did not fall
But how much at that time
I hated being there at all
Next! Next!
I still recall the brothel trucks, the flying flags
The queer lieutenant slapped our arses
thinking we were fags
Next! Next! Next!

I swear on the wet head
of my first case of gonorrhea
It is his ugly voice that I forever fear
Next! Next!
A voice that stinks of whiskey
of corpses and of mud
The voice of nations
the thick voice of blood
Next! Next!
Since then each woman I have taken into bed
they seem to lie in my arms
and they whisper in my head
Next! Next!

All the naked and the dead
could hold each other's hands
as they watch me dream at night
in a dream that nobody understands
and though I am not dreaming in a voice
grown dry and hollow
I stand on endless naked lines of the following and the followed
Next! Next!

One day I'll cut my legs off
I'll burn myself alive
I'll do anything to get out of life to survive
not ever to be next
Next! Next!
not ever
to be next, not ever...................

The Sadies - The First Inquisition (Part IV)


Από το καινούριο LP των The Sadies : New Seasons

The Arcade Fire - No Cars Go / My Body Is A Cage

Τα δύο τελευταία τραγούδια από το Neon Bible (2007)


No Cars Go




----AF----

We know a place where no planes go
We know a place where no ships go

(Hey!) No cars go
(Hey!) No cars go
Where we know

We know a place no space ships go
We know a place where no subs go

(Hey!) No cars go
(Hey!) No cars go
Where we know

(Hey!)
(Hey!)
(Mom, Dad!)
(No go!)

(Hey!) Us kids know
(Hey!) No cars go
Where we know

Between the click of the light and the start of the dream [4x]

I don't want any pushing, and I don't want any shoving.
We're gonna do this in an orderly

Manner. Women and children! Women and children! Women and children,
Let's go! Old folks,


My Body Is A Cage (BBC Radio 2 Session)



----AF----

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love,
But my mind holds the key.

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love,
But my mind holds the key.

I'm standing on the stage
Of fear and self-doubt.
It's a hollow play,
But they'll clap anyway

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key.

Standing next to me.
My mind holds the key.

I'm living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head.

I'm living in an age
Whose name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key.

Standing next to me.
My mind holds the key.

My body is a...

My body is a cage.
We take what we're given,
Just because you've forgotten, that don't mean you're forgiven.

I'm living in an age
Still turning in the night
But when I get to the doorway
There's no one in sight.

I'm living in an age,
Realizing I'm dancing
With the one I love,
But my mind holds the key.

You're still next to me,
My mind holds the key.
Set my spirit free.
Set my spirit free.
Set my body free.
Set my body free.
Woo!
Set my spirit free.
Set my body free.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh

Joe Jackson - Steppin' Out



O Joe Jackson επανέρχεται στη δισκογραφία με την κυκλοφορία του πάρα πολύ καλού Rain στα τέλη Ιανουαρίου του 2008. Το Steppin' Out που είναι η μεγαλύτερη επιτυχία του προέρχεται από το Night and Day [1982].
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Now -
The mist across the window hides the lines
But nothing hides the colour of the lights that shine
Electricity so fine
Look and dry your eyes

We -
So tired of all the darkness in our lives
With no more angry words to say
Can come alive
Get into a car and drive
To the other side

Me babe - steppin out
Into the night
Into the light
You babe - steppin out
Into the night
Into the light

We -
Are young but getting old before our time
Well leave the t.v. and the radio behind
Dont you wonder what well find
Steppin out tonight

You -
Can dress in pink and blue just like a child
And in a yellow taxi turn to me and smile
Well be there in just a while
If you follow me

Me babe - steppin out
Into the night
Into the light
You babe - steppin out
Into the night
Into the light

Alison Moyet - Do You Ever Wonder



Από το υπέροχο Hometime (2002)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Do you ever wonder
What it's like
To be alone and
No sleep at night
Ever wonder
Is this for real
Ever Wonder

Sometimes I think you sigh
Time drifts by, once in a life
Love is strong

I won't feel anything
I'm lost without you

In my mind a picture
That you frame
Kaleidoscope of love you're showing me
Loving sweet rays
All hopes that fade
My only gain
My lonely game played without you

You sigh
Time drifts by, once in a life
Love is strong

I won't feel anything
I'm lost without you

Through the wake of you
Every now and then
Every now and then
The road that I follow is so far from you

Do you every wonder

Kirsty MacColl - In These Shoes?



Πριν 7 χρόνια στις 18 Δεκεμβρίου 2000 χάθηκε με τραγικό τρόπο η Kirsty MacColl. Το In These Shoes? βρισκόταν στο τελευταίο της album "Tropical Brainstorm " [2000].
Τις 3 περασμένες χρονιές το Fairytale of New York που ήταν προϊόν συνεργασίας της με τους The Pogues ψηφίστηκε σαν το αγαπημένο χριστουγεννιάτικο τραγούδι των τηλεθεατών του μουσικού καναλιού VH1.

**********

I once met a man with a sense of adventure
He was dressed to thrill wherever he went
He said lets make love on a mountain top
Under the stars on a big hard rock
I said in these shoes?
I dont think so
I said honey, lets do it here.

So Im sitting at a bar in guadalajara
In walks a guy with a faraway look in his eyes
He said Ive got as powerful horse outside
Climb on the back, Ill take you for a ride
I know a little place, we can get there for the break of day.
I said in these shoes?
No way, jose
I said honey, lets stay right here.

No le gusta caminar. no puede montar a caballo
(I dont like to dance, I cant ride a horse)
Como se puede bailar? es un escandolo
(how can I dance? its a scandal)

Then I met an englishman
Oh he said
Wont you walk up and down my spine,
It makes me feel strangely alive.
I said in these shoes?
I doubt youd survive.
I said honey, lets do it.
Lets stay right here.

No le gusta caminar. no puede montar a caballo
(I dont like to dance, I cant ride a horse)
Como se puede bailar? es un escandolo
(how can I dance? its a scandal)

KT Tunstall - Suddenly I See



Μια live έκδοση του Suddenly I See της KT Tunstall που ακουγόταν στα credits του The devil wears Prada και υπήρχε στο cd της Eye to the Telescope [2004] , κλείνει το φετινό της της Drastic Fantastic.
Πρόσφατα κυκλοφόρησε ένα EP με χριστουγεννιάτικα τραγούδια με τίτλο Sounds of the Season: The KT Tunstall Holiday Collection
------------------

Her face is a map of the world
Is a map of the world
You can see she's a beautiful girl
She's a beautiful girl
And everything around her is a silver pool of light
The people who surround her feel the benefit of it
It makes you calm
She holds you captivated in her palm

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

I feel like walking the world
Like walking the world
You can hear she's a beautiful girl
She's a beautiful girl
She fills up every corner like she's born in black and white
Makes you feel warmer when you're trying to remember
What you heard
She likes to leave you hanging on her word

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

And she's taller than most
And she's looking at me
I can see her eyes looking from a page in a magazine
Oh she makes me feel like I could be a tower
A big strong tower
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see

Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (Suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me

38 Special - Fade to Βlue



Από το LP των 38 Special - Resolution [1997]

383838383838383838383838

Faded curtain, faded moon, through a broken sky
Staring at a photograph, the ghost of you and I
Those were times, yeah, those were good times that we shared
We thought those nights would never end....
(Chorus)
Should've seen it comin', runnin' with a fallen angel
Livin' on a broken promise when the day is through
Tryin' to make a life for us, I only knew it my way
I'm just a shadow on the highway..........Fade to Blue.
I hear you cryin' in your sleep
I can feel it 'cross the miles
Love unspoken runs so deep
Like the tears behind your smile
Those were times, yeah, those were hard times that we had
I'd even take them back again.....
(2nd Chorus)
Should've seen it comin', runnin' with a fallen angel
Livin' on a broken promise when the day is through
Tryin' to make a life for us, I only knew it my way
Another shadow on the highway.......Fade to Blue.
......I fade to...I fade to...I fade to blue
(Every night I fade to blue)
(Refrain)
There'll be times, girl, there'll be good times on the way
I'll always be comin' back again.
(3rd Chorus)

System Of A Down - Soldier Side



Δεν είναι επίσημο το video αλλά έχει γίνει πολύ καλή δουλειά πάνω στο τραγούδι των System Of A Down - Soldier Side. Από το τελευταίο τους cd Hypnotize [2005]

^^^^^^SOAD^^^^^^


Dead men lying on the bottom of the grave
Wondering when savior comes, is he gonna be saved
Maybe you're a sinner into your alternate life
Maybe you're a joker, maybe you deserve to die

They were crying when their sons left
God is wearing black
He's gone so far to find no hope
He's never coming back

They were crying when their sons left
All young men must go
He's come so far to find the truth
He's never going home

Young men standing on the top of their own graves
Wondering when Jesus comes, are they gonna be saved
Cruelty to the winner, bishop tells the king his lies
Maybe you're a mourner, maybe you deserve to die

They were crying when their sons left
God is wearing black
He's gone so far to find no hope
He's never coming back

They were crying when their sons left
All young men must go
He's come so far to find no truth
He's never going home

Welcome to the soldier side
Where there is no one here but me
People all grow up to die
There is no one here but me

Welcome to the soldier side
There is no one here but me
People on the soldier side
There is no one here but me

Jean Ritchie - Shady Grove



H μοναδική Jean Ritchie τραγουδά εδώ το παραδοσιακό Shady Grove

*************

(chorus)

Shady Grove, my little love
Shady Grove I say
Shady Grove, my little love
I'm bound to go away

Cheeks as red a a blooming rose
And eyes are the prettiest brown
She's the darling of my heart
Sweetest girl in towm

(chorus)
(break)

I wish I had a big fine horse
And corn to feed him on
And Shady Grove to stay at home
And feed him while I'm gone

(chorus)
(break)

Went to see my Shady Grove
She was standing in the door
Her shoes and stockin's in her hand
And her little bare feet on the floor

(chorus)
(break)

When I was a little boy
I wanted a Barlow knife
And now I want little Shady Grove
To say she'll be my wife

(chorus)
(break)

A kiss form pretty little Shady Grove
Is sweet as brandy wine
And ther ain't no girl in this old world
Thats's prettier than mine

(chorus)

Wilco - Sky Blue Sky



Πρώτη πραγματικά χειμωνιάτικη μέρα σήμερα και ένας τρόπος να κάνουμε γαλάζιο τον ουρανό, είναι μέσα από το τραγούδι των Wilco - Sky Blue Sky, που βρίσκεται στο ομώνυμο cd τους που κυκλοφόρησε το Μάιο. Πριν λίγες μέρες οι Wilco κυκλοφόρησαν ένα bonus EP του Sky Blue Sky που περιέχει τα εξής κομμάτια:

01. The Thanks I Get
02. Let's Not Get Carried Away
03. One True Vine
04. Impossible Germany [Live]
05. Hate It Here [Live]

-----*-----

Oh, the band marched on in formation
The brass was phasing tunes I couldn’t place
Windows open and raining in
Maroon, yellow, blue, gold and gray

The drunks were ricocheting
The old buildings downtown
Empty so long ago
Windows broken and dreaming
So happy to leave what was my home


With a sky blue sky
This rotten time
Wouldn’t seem so bad to me now
Oh, I didn’t die
I should be satisfied
I survived
That's good enough for now


With a sky blue sky
This rotten time
Wouldn’t seem so bad to me now
Oh, if I didn’t die
I should be satisfied
I survived
That's good enough for now

John Mellencamp - Someday



Το 1ο τραγούδι και 2ο single από το νέο cd του John Mellencamp, Freedom's Road.
Η Joan Baez συμμετέχει στο cd στα φωνητικά του Jim Crow.

Someday, someday
But I don't know when
Someday, someday
But I don't know when

Brother brother oh brother
Why are you walking down this road here
This is the road of madness and trouble
And it's paved with intolerance, ignorance and fear

Someday, someday
But I don't know when
Someday, someday
But I don't know when

Drinking our liquor from a paper cup
Mean to each other
Enough is enough
I look at your face
You look just like me
Hey brother, I'm not your enemy

Someday, someday
But I don't know when
Someday, someday
But I don't know when

How many times can a spirit be broken
For this is the kingdom of heaven we're given
Good fortune will come to those who create peace
For those are the ones that will walk in heaven

Someday, someday
But I don't know when
Someday, someday
But I don't know when

Someday, someday
But I don't know when
Someday, someday
But I don't know when

Led Zeppelin - No Quarter



Από το Houses of the Holy [1973] προέρχεται το No Quarter

######LZ######
Close the doors, put out the light
You know they won't be home tonight
The snow falls hard and don't you know
The winds of Thor are blowing cold
They're wearing steel that's bright and true
They carry news that must get through

They choose the path where no-one goes
They hold no quarter,
They hold no quarter.
Oh...

Walking side by side with death
The devil mocks their every step
The snow drives back the foot that's slow
The dogs of doom are howling low
They carry news that must get through
To build a dream for me and you
They choose the path that no one goes
They hold no quarter,
They ask no quarter,
They hold no quarter,
They ask no quarter...they think about no quarter...With no quarter quarter.
Oh No...

Nazareth - Morning Dew



Πάντα καλοί στις διασκευές οι Nazareth αποδίδουν εδώ το πολυδιασκευασμένο Morning Dew που υπήρχε στο ομώνυμο 1ο άλμπουμ τους.
''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
Walk me out in the morning dew
Walk me out in the morning dew today
I can't walk you out in no morning dew
I can't walk you out in no morning dew at all

Thought I heard a young girl cryin' mama
Thought I heard a young girl cry today
You never heard no young girl cryin'
You never heard no young girl cry at all

Thought I heard a young boy cryin' mama
Thought I heard a young boy cry today
You didn't hear no young boy cryin' buddy
You never heard no young boy cry at all

Thought I heard a young man cryin' mama
Thought I heard a young man cry today
You never heard no young man cryin'
You never heard no young man cry at all

Now there is no more morning dew
Now there is no more morning dew
What they've been sayin' all these years is true
Now there is no more morning dew.

Joe Henry - Time Is A Lion



Από το Civilians, στο οποίο αναφερθήκαμε νωρίτερα, προέρχεται το Time Is A Lion του Joe Henry

======%%%%======

If you fear the angels above while you sleep
Then I'll be the blood, you paint on your door
Your dream is a worry that nothing will keep, but
time is a story and there will be more

Your dream is a worry that nothing will keep,
but time is a story and there will be more

and death in disgrace can seduce anyone
that needs to believe there’s judgment at hand
or God may be kind and see you like a son, but
time is a lion when you are a lamb

Or God may be kind and see you like a son, but
time is a lion when you are a lamb

The years see the best of intentions and greed
they come without shame, they'll leave you with some
men become old when their hurt becomes need, but
time is a lover and your time is young

Men become old when their hurt becomes need, but
time is a lover and your time is young

The sun is a soldier, out crawling the hills
setting fire to every house that’s in view
lighting the ruin of my hope and my will
till I’m like a shadow and I’m falling on you,
crawling on you..
Oh you know how I do..

So sleep here with me and I’ll keep you close
for now while i try to live up to you
You can’t see the challenge of this I suppose, but
time is a dare and I’m trying to

You can’t see the challenge of this I suppose, but
time is a dare and I’m trying to

time is a dare and I’m trying to ( 3x )

Nouvelle Vague - Dance With Me



Μια θαυμάσια διασκευή στο τραγούδι των The Lords Of The New Church κάνουν οι Nouvelle Vague. Το Dance With Me προέρχεται από το Bande A Part (2006) που αποτελείται από διασκευές. Το Dance With Me επέλεξε η Dee στην οποία το blog, "χρωστούσε" την ανάρτηση:) .

!!!!!!(*(*)*)!!!!!!

Let's dance little stranger
Show me secret sins
Love can be like bondage
Seduce me once again

Burning like an angel
Who has heaven in reprieve
Burning like the voodoo man
With devils on his sleeve

Won't you dance with me
In my world of fantasy
Won't you dance with me
Ritual fertility

Like an apparition
You don't seem real at all
Like a premonition
Of curses on my soul

The way I want to love you
Well it could be against the law
I've seen you in a thousand minds
You've made the angels fall

Won't you dance with me
In my world of fantasy
Won't you dance with me
Ritual fertility

Come on little stranger
There's only one last dance
Soon the music's over
Let's give it one more chance

Won't you dance with me
In my world of fantasy
Won't you dance with me
Ritual fertility

Take a chance with me
In my world of fantasy
Won't you dance with me
Ritual fertility

Joe Henry - Civilians



O Joe Henry μιλά εδώ για το καινούριο του cd και παρουσιάζει κάποια δείγματα.
Αν θέλετε να ακούσετε περισσότερα (κάποια από τα τραγούδια υπάρχουν ολοκληρωμένα) μπορείτε να πάτε στην επίσημη σελίδα του.

Solomon Burke - Flesh and Blood


Η κυκλοφορία του νέου cd του Joe Henry Civilians, μου θύμισε την καταπληκτική ερμηνεία του Solomon Burke στο τραγούδι του Flesh and Blood. Το τραγούδι εμφανίστηκε πρώτα στο cd του Solomon Burke στο Don't Give Up on Me (2002), ενώ από τον ίδιο τον Joe Henry ακούστηκε την επόμενη χρονιά στο Tiny Voices .
**************
Come sit beside me
that'll do for now
the night has come and left me
just the light that you allow

come speak my name
fill my head with all such foolish dreams
my flesh and blood
is no more real to me
than what it seems

my love for you is burning
like a spark along a fuse
i feel your mark upon me now
as surely as the hand that leaves the bruise

life is for the living
and life comes hard for some
the rest of us with flesh and blood
make it hard all along

all i ever wanted
was the freedom to refuse
or something of my own to love enough
to hate
to lose

the fever in my brain
is leaving smoke behind my eyes
but the part of me that wants to change
fights the part of me that trys

come see the golden light
cause i've turned the gold light on
sometimes god knows
you gotta learn to shine, shine, shine shine, shine gold.

i stepped out of darkness
and for a moment
i'm only living by your kiss your kiss your kiss your kiss your lips your kiss
and now, just for now, our flesh and blood
is more real than this
more real than this..

The Mamas and the Papas - California Dreamin'



Ένα ζεστό χειμωνιάτικο τραγούδι από τους The Mamas and the Papas το California Dreamin' που υπήρχε στο πρώτο τους Lp If You Can Believe Your Eyes and Ears (1966). Στις 19 Ιανουαρίου της χρονιάς που τελειώνει ο Denny Doherty έγινε το τρίτο μέλος του συγκροτήματος που έφυγε από τη ζωή.
===((***))===
All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day
I'd be safe and warm
If I was in L.A.
California dreamin'
On such a winter's day

Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Well I got down on my knees
And I pretend to pray
You know the preacher likes the cold
He knows I'm gonna stay
California dreamin'
On such a winter's day

All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day
If I didn't tell her
I could leave today
California dreamin'
On such a winter's day
On such a winter's day
On such a winter's day

13th Floor Elevators: Rose And The Thorn



Από το συγκρότημα του Roky Erickson τους 13th Floor Elevators, δημιουργήθηκε το Rose And The Thorn που υπήρχε στο LP τους Bull of the Woods (1968)

==***==

A brand new smile on a brand new angel's face.
It won't change, it won't change.
You're here to stay until your last living breath is complete.
It' won't change, it won't change.
Here she comes, my love,
with the earth beneath her feet,
my love she comes.
She cares.
I do not ask her why she cares,
she cares.
And this is not untold,
within her eyes,
spoken by her soul.
The dawn of truth will rise!
Liberty will find us,
Grown cold, and make him stoned.
The canon stops it's firing,
the unknown soldier will come home.
Faith cannot remain,
wicked words have been confirmed false.
A single drop of the rain,
the rose and and thorn...
The Rise and the Fall

Edgar Broughton Band - Evening Over Rooftops



To 1971 κυκλοφόρησε το 3ο LP των Edgar Broughton Band με τίτλο το όνομά τους. Από εκεί προέρχεται το Evening Over Rooftops στο οποίο συμμετέχουν στα φωνητικά οι The Ladybidrs.
Ανάμεσα στις άλλες συμμετοχές του LP στο Thinking Of You συμμετείχε και ο Mike Oldfield παίζοντας μαντολίνο.
(((((EBB)))))
The air was thick like honey
Looking from a room
The room had open windows
To let this springtime through

Evening stood by watchin'
At the side of summer's promise
The flowers in her garden
Were the envy of her friends

How far are we from dying
Is it nearly at an end?
How far are we from dying
Is it nearly at an end?

The smoke hung on the skyline
The city fell in silence
The sunset, ripe and mellow
Was the light to write some thoughts by

Her children watched for father
From a window in the wall
Said a prayer for grandpapa
And maybe many more

Somewhere in the distance
On the road so far away
I heard the sound of life
With all the people left for home

Three birds flew off a building
Standing proud against the sky
Many more flew with them
Spiralled upward like laughter

Faster, harder
They rose up in a column
Hundreds upon hundreds
And twice that many wingspeed

Four miles across
Stretched a million miles high
The living pulsing column
In the lady of the sky

Feathers thrashed together
Blocked in that huge swarm
I knew no-one could see it
And now that it was gone

I rubbed my eyes, but tried to find
A reason for the flight
Exodus, escape
Or was it just for me to see?

Like the mating of the earth and air
Like water is to flowers
The envy of her friends
How far are we from dying, is it nearly at an end?

How far are we from dying
Is it nearly at an end?
How far are we from dying
Is it nearly at an end? ....

Frank Zappa - Black Napkins



Ένα κερί καίει στην είσοδο της επίσημης ιστοσελίδας μιας από τις μεγαλύτερες μουσικές ιδιοφυίες του 20ού αιώνα. Ο γεννημένος στη Βαλτιμόρη με ελληνικές και αραβικές ρίζες από τον πατέρα του και ιταλικές και γαλλικές από τη μητέρα του, Frank Zappa έφυγε από κοντά μας στις 4 Δεκεμβρίου του 1993. Κομμάτια της τεράστιας μουσικής κληρονομιάς που μας άφησε εξακολουθούν να εμφανίζονται συνεχώς. Μόλις στις 31 Οκτωβρίου κυκλοφόρησε το 2πλό cd Wazoo. Όσοι ενδιαφέρονται για λεπτομέρειες της κληρονομιάς του Frank Zappa μπορούν να βρουν μια καταπληκτική παρουσίαση εδώ.

Sam Stoat - Peggy Gordon



Το παραδοσιακό ιρλανδέζικο τραγούδι Peggy Gordon περιέργως δεν περιλαμβάνεται στο soundtrack της ταινίας The Proposition, που υπογράφουν οι Nick Cave και Warren Ellis, παρά το ότι ακούγεται αρκετά σε αυτήν. Η μουσική του The Proposition νωχελικά μελωδική έρχεται σε πλήρη αντιδιαστολή με τη βιαιότητα της ταινίας. Αν ενδιαφέρεστε για περισσότερα στοιχεία σχετικά με το The Proposition μπορείτε να διαβάσετε την πολύ καλή και απόλυτα κατατοπιστική κριτική του Ηλία Δημόπουλου.

Chorus
O Peggy Gordon, You are my darling
Come sit you down upon my knee
And tell to me the very reason
Why I am slighted so by thee
verse 1
I am in love I can't deny it
My heart lies smothered in my breast
But it's not for you to let the world know it
A troubled mind can find no rest
verse 2
I lost myself in a cask of brandy
It was my fancy, I do declare
For when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
And wishing Peggy Gordon was here
verse 3
I wish I was in a lonesome valley
Where womankind cannot be found
And all the little birds they change their voices
And every moment a different sound
verse 4
I wish I was away in Ingo
Far away across the briny sea
Sailing over deepest oceans
Where Peggy Gordon ne'r troubles me
