Leonard Cohen - The Future






Give me back my broken night
my mirrored room, my secret life
it's lonely here,
there's no one left to torture
Give me absolute control
over every living soul
And lie beside me, baby,
that's an order!
Give me crack and anal sex
Take the only tree that's left
and stuff it up the hole
in your culture
Give me back the Berlin wall
give me Stalin and St Paul
I've seen the future, brother:
it is murder.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
The blizzard, the blizzard of the world
has crossed the threshold
and it has overturned
the order of the soul
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant
When they said REPENT REPENT
I wonder what they meant

You don't know me from the wind
you never will, you never did
I'm the little jew
who wrote the Bible
I've seen the nations rise and fall
I've heard their stories, heard them all
but love's the only engine of survival
Your servant here, he has been told
to say it clear, to say it cold:
It's over, it ain't going
any further
And now the wheels of heaven stop
you feel the devil's riding crop
Get ready for the future:
it is murder

Things are going to slide ...

There'll be the breaking of the ancient
western code
Your private life will suddenly explode
There'll be phantoms
There'll be fires on the road
and the white man dancing
You'll see a woman
hanging upside down
her features covered by her fallen gown
and all the lousy little poets
coming round
tryin' to sound like Charlie Manson
and the white man dancin'

Give me back the Berlin wall
Give me Stalin and St Paul
Give me Christ
or give me Hiroshima
Destroy another fetus now
We don't like children anyhow
I've seen the future, baby:
it is murder

Things are going to slide ...

When they said REPENT REPENT ...


Leonard Cohen - Waiting For The Miracle



Baby, I've been waiting,
I've been waiting night and day.
I didn't see the time,
I waited half my life away.
There were lots of invitations
and I know you sent me some,
but I was waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.
I know you really loved me.
but, you see, my hands were tied.
I know it must have hurt you,
it must have hurt your pride
to have to stand beneath my window
with your bugle and your drum,
and me I'm up there waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Ah I don't believe you'd like it,
You wouldn't like it here.
There ain't no entertainment
and the judgements are severe.
The Maestro says it's Mozart
but it sounds like bubble gum
when you're waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Waiting for the miracle
There's nothing left to do.
I haven't been this happy
since the end of World War II.

Nothing left to do
when you know that you've been taken.
Nothing left to do
when you're begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
when you've got to go on waiting
waiting for the miracle to come.

I dreamed about you, baby.
It was just the other night.
Most of you was naked
Ah but some of you was light.
The sands of time were falling
from your fingers and your thumb,
and you were waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come

Ah baby, let's get married,
we've been alone too long.
Let's be alone together.
Let's see if we're that strong.
Yeah let's do something crazy,
something absolutely wrong
while we're waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Nothing left to do ...

When you've fallen on the highway
and you're lying in the rain,
and they ask you how you're doing
of course you'll say you can't complain --
If you're squeezed for information,
that's when you've got to play it dumb:
You just say you're out there waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.


Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah



Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew her
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah


Leonard Cohen - Everybody Knows

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that youve been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows youve been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that its now or never
Everybody knows that its me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when youve done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old black joes still pickin cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the plague is coming
Everybody knows that its moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But theres gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows

And everybody knows that youre in trouble
Everybody knows what youve been through
From the bloody cross on top of calvary
To the beach of malibu
Everybody knows its coming apart
Take one last look at this sacred heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows

Leonard Cohen - Avalanche



Well I stepped into an avalanche,
it covered up my soul;
when I am not this hunchback that you see,
I sleep beneath the golden hill.
You who wish to conquer pain,
you must learn, learn to serve me well.
You strike my side by accident
as you go down for your gold.
The cripple here that you clothe and feed
is neither starved nor cold;
he does not ask for your company,
not at the centre, the centre of the world.

When I am on a pedestal,
you did not raise me there.
Your laws do not compel me
to kneel grotesque and bare.
I myself am the pedestal
for this ugly hump at which you stare.

You who wish to conquer pain,
you must learn what makes me kind;
the crumbs of love that you offer me,
they're the crumbs I've left behind.
Your pain is no credential here,
it's just the shadow, shadow of my wound.

I have begun to long for you,
I who have no greed;
I have begun to ask for you,
I who have no need.
You say you've gone away from me,
but I can feel you when you breathe.

Do not dress in those rags for me,
I know you are not poor;
you don't love me quite so fiercely now
when you know that you are not sure,
it is your turn, beloved,
it is your flesh that I wear.




Leonard Cohen The Partisan



When they poured across the border
I was cautioned to surrender,
this I could not do;
I took my gun and vanished.
I have changed my name so often,
I've lost my wife and children
but I have many friends,
and some of them are with me.

An old woman gave us shelter,
kept us hidden in the garret,
then the soldiers came;
she died without a whisper.

There were three of us this morning
I'm the only one this evening
but I must go on;
the frontiers are my prison.

Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing,
through the graves the wind is blowing,
freedom soon will come;
then we'll come from the shadows.

Les Allemands e'taient chez moi, (The Germans were at my home)
ils me dirent, "Signe toi," (They said, "Sign yourself,")
mais je n'ai pas peur; (But I am not afraid)
j'ai repris mon arme. (I have retaken my weapon.)

J'ai change' cent fois de nom, (I have changed names a hundred times)
j'ai perdu femme et enfants (I have lost wife and children)
mais j'ai tant d'amis; (But I have so many friends)
j'ai la France entie`re. (I have all of France)

Un vieil homme dans un grenier (An old man, in an attic)
pour la nuit nous a cache', (Hid us for the night)
les Allemands l'ont pris; (The Germans captured him)
il est mort sans surprise. (He died without surprise.)

Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing,
through the graves the wind is blowing,
freedom soon will come;
then we'll come from the shadows.

CocoRosie - God Has a Voice She Speaks Through Me



To God Has a Voice She Speaks Through Me κυκλοφορησε σαν single μέσα από τη σελίδα των CocoRosie στις 13 Μαΐου

How my tears made love to you
Watching dolphins in the sea
The Earth is a pretty place to be
How my tears made love to thee

Black bodies float in the sea
We can see
but we can't see me
a starlit shroud like the dark to you
Laughter echoes in my private room

Kissing fireflies on the beach
Something something we can be
Everyone has love to give
Hearts will teach us how to live

My body wept
My fear was so free
The water softly
tickles me
my heart is pounding waiting for
the ocean deep with love to lift my veil

Crystal light shines through mine eyes
God has a voice, she speaks through me
Every creature loves to be
in his arms please carry me

I'm happy in the light of day
My skin glows bright in the sun breeze
My shadowed world seems so far away

My angel told me not to fear
Love is free from everywhere
Listen to that special part
It will save us, its the heart.

God has a voice he speaks through me
God has a voice she speaks through me

Crystal light in every creature
Crystal light, (in every creature)
Everyone has love to give

The Verve - Love Is Noise



Νέο single για τους The Verve. Το Love Is Noise κυκλοφορεί στις 3 Αυγούστου

Will those feet in modern times
Walk on soles that are made in China?
Feel the bright prosaic malls
In the corridors that go on and on and on

Are we blind - can we see?
We are one - incomplete
Are we blind - In the shade
Waiting for lightning - to be saved
Cause love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again
Love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again, again, again

Will those feet in modern times
Understand this world's affliction
Recognise the righteous anger
Understand this world's addiction

I was blind - couldn't see
What was here in me
I was blind - insecure
I felt like the road was way too long, yeah
Cause love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again, again, again, again, again, again

Cause love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Come on, come on, ah come on, ah come on
Now come on, now come on, now come on
Now come on

Will those feet in modern times
Walk on soles made in China?
Will those feet in modern times
See the bright prosaic malls?
Will those feet in modern times
Forgive me all my sins
Love is noise
Come on

The Scenic - The American Way



Από το καινούριο LP των The Scenic - Find Yourself Here που κυκλοφόρησε στις 22 Ιουλίου.

Them legs
Oh, yeah, they're looking so good
(Oh, they're looking so damn good!)
And now she walks along, she's turning heads
Make them boys think they should

And them thighs
Oh, yeah, they're moving so slow
And as the records spins, you sings along
I'm about to lose control

And she bleeds
It's the American way
I play along, yeah
Cause that's just how she's always been

And I know
That you already know
(That you already know!)
Moving so fast
That you're bound to lose control
Alright

Your damn hips
You know you shake it so well
I'm gonna shake, shake, shake it up
You got me under your spell

And she bleeds
It's the American way
I play along, yeah
Cause that's just how she's always been

And I know
That you already know
(That you already know!)
Moving so fast
That you're bound to lose control


It's no secret
She just likes the way it feels
She's not impressed
(She's not impressed)
With anything you have to give

A habit I've been trying to kick aside
As the bottle breaks, you've been blowing smoke that's filling up my lungs

You're a habit I've been trying to kick aside
As the bottle breaks, you've been blowing smoke that's filling up my lungs
(You got it going on!)
I know
That you already know
(That you already know!)
Moving so fast
That you're bound to lose control

It's no secret
She just likes the way it feels
She's not impressed
With anything you have to give

Βασιλική Νευροκοπλή - Σε Τέμπο Κόκκινο


Το ζεστό κόκκινο του εξωφύλλου προοιωνίζει τη ζεστασιά που φέρνει η ανάγνωση του καινούριου βιβλίου της Βασιλικής Νευροκοπλή, "Σε Τέμπο Κόκκινο" που κυκλοφόρησε πριν λίγες μέρες από τις εκδόσεις Λιβάνη. Νοιώθεις την ίδια δίπλα σου να αφηγείται τις κοντινές και μακρινές περιπλανήσεις σε μέρη ευπρόσιτα, μα και σε μέρη που μόνο ο νους και η ψυχή φτάνουν. Στον κόσμο μας και πέρα από αυτόν εκμηδενίζοντας τις αποστάσεις. Γεμάτο εικόνες που παρά την κάποιες φορές καταιγιστική εναλλαγή τους, είναι η κάθε μία πίνακας ξεχωριστός. Πίνακας όμως ολοζώντανος κι όχι νεκρή φύση, γιατί έχει ενσωματώσει ένα κομμάτι απο την ψυχή όχι μόνο της συγγραφέως, αλλά και όλων όσων περιγράφει.

(Στο blog της Βασιλικής Νευροκοπλή μπορείτε να δείτε τι λεει η ίδια για το βιβλίο) .

Alison Krauss - If I didn't Know Any Better / My Poor Old Heart / Restless / Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us

.

Τα 37 κλείνει σήμερα η Alison Krauss που γεννήθηκε στις 23 Ιουλίου του 1971.

Alison Krauss - If I didn't Know Any Better



I turned around
Before I could run I found you already settled down in the back of my mind
I know this is just a customary feelin'
The moon is our deceiver that will leave you running blind

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If I didn't know any better
And I'd be in love with you

Didn't want to
Look in the eyes of the one that I would be drawn to
I'm a moth lost in a fire
And I know this is just a beautiful illusion, a case of the confusion, between love and desire

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If I didn't know any better
And I'd be in love

When the flame burns out
And fine'ly settles down
And you'd forget I ever came around

Your heart is pullin'
If I didn't know any better
I'd be fallin'
Deeper and deeper it's true
I'd hear it callin'
If didn't know any better
And I'd be in love with you

I turned around
Before I could run I found you already settled down in the back of my mind


Alison Krauss - My Poor Old Heart



Don't expect too much from my poor old heart
You can blame me unforgiven for my scars
You might just be the best that I can find
But I can't seem to forget the tears I've cried.
I don't know that I will ever trust again
It's the price that I must pay for all my sins
Time has changed me and left me full of doubt
And my heart may be lost...never to be found.
Once upon a time I did believe
In my true love that swept me off my feet
Then the winds of change
Swept in the way
And left me drowning in my pain.
I don't know that I will ever love again
It's the price that I must pay for all my sins
Time has changed me and left me full of doubt
And my heart may be lost...never to be found.
I don't know that I will ever love again
It's the price that I must pay for all my sins
Time has changed me and left me full of doubt.
I don't know that I will ever trust again
It's the price that I must pay for all my sins
Time has changed me and left me full of doubt
And my heart may be lost...never to be found.


Alison Krauss-Restless



Honey, I know you've been alone some,
Why don't you 'phone some, 'cause I love you.
An' honey, I know I've been away some,
I've had to pay some and you have too.

But the one thing I know: that when I, I turn out the light,
Visions of you, dear, dance in the night.
I've been put down, pushed around, apprehended and led downtown.
An' I can't help it if I'm out of sight,
'Cause I'm restless tonight.

I just can't stand bein' alone.
Gonna have to change that some day.
There's a restless feelin' in my bones an' I know,
That at times, it just won't go away.

So if it's all the same, honey, I can't take the blame, baby,
I can't play your game, honey, what's true is true.
And if, in the end, the temptation wears you thin, honey,
I'll, I'll just pretend that I'll leave it up to you.

But the one thing I know: that when I, I turn out the light,
Visions of you, dear, dance in the night.
I've been put down, pushed around, apprehended and led downtown.
Can't help it if I'm full of fire.

But the one thing I know: that when I, I turn out the light,
Visions of you, dear, dance in the night.
I've been put down, pushed around, apprehended and led downtown.
An' I can't help it if I'm out of sight,
'Cause I'm restless tonight.

Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us (with Robert Plant)



Strange things are happening every day
I hear the music up above my head
Though the side of my heart has left me again
I hear music up above

Secrets are written in the sky
Looks like I've lost the love I've never found
Though the sound of hope has left me again
I hear music up above

Standing in my broken heart all night long
Darkness held me like a friend when love was lost
Looking for the land thats hidden in the cross
The finders love
I know I loved you too much
Ill go alone to get through

I hear Rosetta singing in the night
Echos of light that shine like stars after they're gone
And tonight shes my guide as I go on alone
With the music up above

Frog Eyes - Idle Songs



Από το Tears of the Valedictorian που κυκλοφόρησαν οι Καναδοί Frog Eyes το 2007. To Idle Songs κατεβαίνει από εδώ (μέσω Last FM), όπως και εδώ το πολύ καλό Bushels από το ίδιο cd.

O the Roman ambassador
Was torn apart-apart by plaster
And reassembled after:
the 40 years of bombing:
They were wild and they were crying, in the picture
Where the smoke cleared
Tear your body from your beard
And watch as the planes burn the boats from the isle

A board is a board
When the pulpit meets the sword
And the poet has been bored
He's seen Fire and he's seen Pain
And the tedium has stained,
O Vergil, get your rake out there's a pastor to be pulled
And 60 miles west of Rome: "I stopped some dreadful hoard."

And I, I will let my body go,
And when it goes and then it stinks
There will be beauty in its stink
And the last rays of the fink
Will suppose themselves to shine
Upon the corpse of Stinking Gold
That has fallen into brine,
Idle song.

Los Lonely Boys - Heart Won't Tell A Lie



Από το Forgiven που κυκλοφόρησαν οι Los Lonely Boys την 1η Ιουλίου.

I don't get around much like I used to.
I don't cry, not unless I want to.
Might be somethin' in the air.
Might be that I just don't care.
Might be cuz I lost my baby,
Or it might be my mind, yeah.

Well, you might think that I'm talkin' crazy.
Might even believe its true,
Cuz right now my life's a little hazy.
Can't even put on my shoes.
Might be cuz the worlds gone crazy, darlin',
Or it might be my mind.

Search your soul and you will find
That your heart won't tell a lie.

I can't lie even if I want to.
My momma didn't raise no fool.
Hey, I seen what you go believin',
And I know about the Golden Rule.
Might be cuz I'm a dreamer, baby,
Or it might be my mind

Search your soul and you will find
That your heart won't tell a lie.

Search your soul and you will find
That your heart won't tell a lie.

Chemtrails [live]



Στο καινούριο cd του Beck, που έχει τίτλο Modern Guilt , βρίσκεται το Chemtrails και αποτελεί το 1ο single. Το Modern Guilt πρωτοκυκλοφορησε στις 4 Ιουλίου στη Γερμανία .



I can't believe
What we've
Seen outside
You and me
Watching the jets
Go by
Oh, ooh, oh
Oh, ooh, oh

Just what I've seen
So many people
Falling in??
You and me
Watching the sea
Full of people
Try not to drown

So many people
So many people
Where do they go?
You and me
Watching the sky
In the future
That's where
We can go

All I can take
From these skies
Is fog
And all I can see
In this light
A boat sinking
Oh, oooh
Oh, oooh, oh

Somebody's sea
Swallowed by evil
Already gone
You and me
Watching the sea
Full of people
Already drowning
So many people
So many people
Where did they go?
You and me
Hit by a cloud
?? eagle
Watching the jets
Pass go by
You and me watching
You and me watching

That's what I mean
When we talk
In this jetstream
We're climbing
A hole in the sky

The Mountain Goats - In the Craters of the Moon



Από το πρόσφατο LP των The Mountain Goats, Heretic Pride

If the strain proves too much
Give up right away
If the light hurts your eyes
Stay in your room all day
When the room fills with smoke
Lie down on the floor
In the declining years of a long war

When the blood’s in the water
And the shark’s gonna come
And we swim in the dark
Until our bodies are numb
Blind as rats in the moonlight
Too far from shore
In the declining years of the long war

Empty room with a lightbulb
When the phone starts to ring
Everybody gets nervous
Nobody says anything
Next day someone’s initials
Show up on the door
I think I’m gonna crack
Can’t live like this anymore
Ugly things in the darkness
Worse things in store
In the declining years of a long war

Bon Iver - Flume / Skinny Love

Ιδιαίτερη η φωνή και η μελαγχολική μουσική του Justin Vernon που ήταν μέλος των DeYarmond Edison. Με το όνομα Bon Iver, παραλλαγή του γαλλικού bon hiver που σημαίνει "καλό χειμώνα" ξεκίνησε καινούρια καρριέρα. Τα δύο τραγούδια, "Flume" και "Skinny Love" υπάρχουν στο πρώτο του LP For Emma, Forever Ago που αρχικά κυκλοφόρησε ο ίδιος σε 500 αντίτυπα το 2007. Το Φεβρουάριο η Jagjaguwar το επανακυκλοφόρησε στις ΗΠΑ και το Μάιο η 4AD στη Μεγάλη Βρεττανία.

Flume


I am my mother's only one
It's enough
I wear my garment so it shows

Now you know
Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume
Sky is womb and she's the moon

I am my mother on the wall, with us all
I move in water, shore to shore;
Nothing's more

Only love is all maroon
Lapping lakes like leary loons
Leaving rope burns --
Reddish ruse

Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume

Sky is womb and she's the moon
---------------
Skinny Love
Κατεβαίνει από εδώ και από εδώ



Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt we were never here
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in the moment this order's tall

I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
In the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different "kind"
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love what happened here
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full; so slow on the split

I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
Now all your love is wasted?
Then who the hell was I?
Now I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?

Syd Barrett - Octopus / Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here -Shine On You Crazy Diamond



Συμπληρώνονται σήμερα 2 χρόνια από το θάνατο του Syd Barret. Δυστυχώς η ζωή δεν τον αντάμειψε ανάλογα με την αξία του . Το Octopus βρισκόταν στο The Madcap Laughs (1970)

Trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro
you have no word
trip, trip to a dream dragon
hide your wings in a ghost tower
sails crackiling at ev'ry plate we break
cracked by scattered needles
little minute gong
coughs and clears his throat
madam you see before you stand
hey ho, never be still
the old original favourite gran
grasshoppers green herbarian band
and the tune they play in us confide...
so trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'
you have no word
Please leave us here
close our eyes to the octopus ride!
Isn't it good to be lost in the wood
isn't it bad so quiet there, in the wood
twenty even less to me than I thought
with a honey plough of yellow prickly seeds
clover honey pots and mystic shining feed...
well, the madcap laughed at the man on the border
hey ho, huff the talbot
Cheetah he cried shouted kangaroo
so through their tree they cried
Please leave us here
close our eyes to the octopus ride!
The madcap laughed at the man on the border
hey ho, huff the talbot
the winds they blew and the leaves did wag
and they'll never put me in their bag
the seas will reach and always see
so high you go, so low you creep
the winds it blows in tropical heat
the drones they throng on mossy seats
the squeaking door will always creep
two up, two down we'll never meet
so merrily trip for good my side
Please leave us here
close our eyes to the octopus ride


Σε αυτόν ήταν αφιερωμένο το άλμπουμ Wish You Were Here. των Pink Floyd και κυρίως το ομώνυμο κομμάτι

(Wish You Were Here)


So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skys from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here


και το Shine On You Crazy Diamond



Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr,
and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision, rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner,
and shine!

Nobody knows where you are, how near or how far.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Pile on many more layers and I'll be joining you there.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
And we'll bask in the shadow of yesterday's triumph, and sail on the steel breeze.
Come on you boy child, you winner and loser, come on you miner for truth and delusion,
and shine!

The Doors - When The Music's Over / Unknown Soldier / Indian Summer / Adagio in G minor

The Doors - When The Music's Over



Από το Strange Days, που κυκλοφόρησαν οι The Doors το 1967.

Yeah, c'mon

When the music's over
When the music's over, yeah
When the music's over
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights, yeah

When the music's over
When the music's over
When the music's over
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights

For the music is your
special friend
Dance on fire as it intends
Music is your only friend
Until the end
Until the end
Until the end

Cancel my subscription to
the Resurrection
Send my credentials to the
House of Detention
I got some friends inside

The face in the mirror won't stop
The girl in the window won't drop
A feast of friends
"Alive!" she cried
Waitin' for me
Outside!

Before I sink
Into the big sleep
I want to hear
I want to hear
The scream of the butterfly

Come back, baby
Back into my arm
We're gettin' tired of
hangin' around
Waitin' around with our
heads to the ground

I hear a very gentle sound
Very near yet very far
Very soft, yeah, very clear
Come today, come today

What have they done to the earth?
What have they done to
our fair sister?
Ravaged and plundered
and ripped her and
bit her
Stuck her with knives in
the side of the dawn
And tied her with fences
and dragged her down

I hear a very gentle sound
With your ear down to the ground
We want the world and
we want it...
We want the world and
we want it...
Now
Now?
Now!

Persian night, babe
See the light, babe
Save us!
Jesus!
Save us!

So when the music's over
When the music's over, yeah
When the music's over
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights

Well the music is your
special friend
Dance on fire as it intends
Music is your only friend
Until the end
Until the end
Until the end!

The Doors - Unknown Soldier

Από το Waiting for the Sun που κλείνει στις 11 Ιουλίου 40 χρόνια από την πρώτη κυκλοφορία του



Wait until the war is over
And we're both a little older
The unknown soldier

Breakfast where the news is read
Television children fed
Unborn living, living, dead
Bullet strikes the helmet's head

And it's all over
For the unknown soldier
It's all over
For the unknown soldier

Hut
Hut
Hut ho hee up
Hut
Hut
Hut ho hee up
Hut
Hut
Hut ho hee up
Comp'nee
Halt
Preeee-zent!
Arms!

Make a grave for the unknown soldier
Nestled in your hollow shoulder
The unknown soldier

Breakfast where the news is read
Television children fed
Bullet strikes the helmet's head

And, it's all over
The war is over
It's all over
The war is over
Well, all over, baby
All over, baby
Oh, over, yeah
All over, baby
Wooooo, hah-hah
All over
All over, baby
Oh, woa-yeah
All over
All over
Heeeeyyyy


The Doors - Indian Summer



Από το Morrison Hotel (1970)

I love you the best
Better than all the rest.
I love you the best
Better than all the rest.
That I meet in the summer.
Indian summer.
That I meet in the summer.
Indian summer.
I love you the best
Better than all the rest.

The Doors - (Albinoni's) Adagio in G minor






Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin & Jimi Hendrix - Red House



37 χρόνια συμπληρώνονται σήμερα από το θάνατο του Jim Morrison. Έφυγε κι αυτός όπως κι οι άλλοι δύο πολύ νωρίς . Μακάρι να υπήρχε και αυθεντικό βίντεο με τους 3 για το κομμάτι
''''''''JJJ''''''''

Oh, yeah

There's a red house over yonder
That's where my baby stays
Lord, there's a red house over yonder
Lord, that's where my baby stays
I ain't been home to see my baby
In ninety-nine and one half days

Wait a minute something's wrong here
The key won't unlock this door
Wait a minute something's wrong
Lord, have mercy this key won't unlock this door
Somethin's goin' on here
I have a bad, bad feeling
That my baby don't live here no more
That's alright, I still got my guitar
Look out now...

Yeah, that's alright
I still got my guitar

Well, I might as well go back over yonder
Way back up on the hill
That's something to do
Lord, I might as well go back over yonder
Way back yonder 'cross the hill
'Cause if my baby don't love me no more
I know her sister will

Doug Walker - The Mystery



To The Mystery ήταν το τραγούδι που άνοιξε τις πόρτες στον Doug Walker μετά από χρόνια προσπαθειών. Πριν ένα χρόνο πήγε στον Chris Moyles παραγωγό του Radio 1 του BBC μερικά cd με το τραγούδι κι αυτός μετά από λίγη ώρα το έβαλε στην εκπομπή του. Στο σταθμό έγιναν αναρίθμητα τηλεφωνήματα για το τραγούδι. Σήμερα ο Doug Walker έχει συμβόλαιο με τη Warner Bros κι εδώ και λίγες μέρες κυκλοφορεί το πρώτο του άλμπουμ "Fear Together". Στο Fear Together περιλαμβάνεται το The Mystery και είναι μάλιστα το 1ο single.
