For everything that's wrong, there is a worry, man
There's a reason why
We just don't understand but, well, you gotta keep the faith

Be patient, oh, the past is just a memory in here
Heal your mind, you'll heal inside eventually
We were born into a light

For everyone alone, I wish you faith and hope
And all the strength to cope
To be your own best friend, have confidence and keep the faith.

Be patient for the past is just a memory in here
Heal the ???,you'll heal inside eventually

TV On The Radio - Golden Age



Από τις 22 Σεπτεμβρίου κυκλοφορεί το Dear Science των Νεοϋορκέζων TV on the Radio στο οποίο βρίσκεται το Golden Age. Πάρα πολύ θετικές οι κριτικές που ακολούθησαν την κυκλοφορία του cd.



Tv On The Radio widget by 6L & AM


Heart beat sounding
Ricocheting in their cage
Thought I'd lose my balance
With the grounds bounce and sway
And all this violence
And all this goes away
And the vibes that rise like
Fireflies illuminate our play

Some light being
Pulled you up from night's party
Said clap your hands
If you think your soul is free
And the silence was astounding
'cept some "Oh Lord!! Mercy Me's"
And oh you can't stop what's comin' up
You're never gonna stop gonna live it up
And oh it's gonna drop gonna fill your cup
And oh it's gonna drop gonna fill your cup

The age of miracles
The age of sound
Well there's a Golden Age
Comin' round, comin' round, comin' round

Give it up
'stead of grabbing for decay
What we viewed as gold
I believe pollutes this space
And its grace ascending
Like a snake up your tree
Up your happy ending understanding
All your s'pposed to be

Let it move right in
Let it kiss your face
Let it sow your skin
In perpetual embrace

Like I said "Love's Light is Laughter"
Like the sun spitting happiness into the hereafter
Oh here it comes like a natural disaster
Ah blowing up like a ghetto blaster
Ah here it comes, bring it faster
Ah here it comes, bring it faster

The age of miracles
The age of sound
Well there's a Golden Age
Comin' round, comin' round, comin' round

Love, don't you falter
Burning hearts
Dragged behind
The horses dancing on the altar
Hooves breaking Gods
To diamond dust and stars
And there you are...

Now we're all allowed to breathe
Walls dissolve
With the hunger and the greed
Move your body
You've got all you need
And your arms in the air stir a sea of stars
And oh here it comes and it's not so far

All light beings
Come on now make haste
Clap your hands
If you think you're in the right place
Thunder all surrounding
Aw feel it quake with the joy resounding
Palm to the palm you can feel it pounding
Never give it up you can feel it mounting
Oh its gonna drop gonna fill your cup and
Oh its gonna drop gonna fill your cup

The age of miracles
The age of sound
Well there's a Golden Age
Comin' round, comin' round, comin' round

The age of miracles
The age of sound
Well there's a Golden Age
Comin' round, comin' round, comin' round

David Gilmour - High Hopes (Live In Gdansk)



Ζωντανό άλμπουμ με κομμάτια των Pink Floyd και προσωπικά του κυκλοφόρησε ο David Gilmour στις 22 Σεπτεμβρίου σε πολλές διαφορετικές μορφές. Το άλμπουμ έχει τίτλο Live in Gdańsk και περιλαμβάνει την τελευταία συναυλία του στα πλαίσια της περιοδείας για την προώθηση του On an Island που έγινε στις 26 Αυγούστου του στα ναυπηγεία του Gdansk. Άλλα βίντεο από τη συναυλία υπάρχουν στο επίσημο κανάλι του στο Youtube.

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our troughts strayed constandly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begin

Along the long road and on down the causeway
Do they still meet there by the cut

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before time took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
With friends surrounded
The night of wonder

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide

At a higher altitude with flag unfuried
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

Eneumbered forever by desire and ambition
Theres a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road weve been so many time

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever

The Hold Steady - Sequestered in Memphis



Stay Positive Μας λένε οι The Hold Steady στο καινούριο τους άλμπουμ που κυκλοφορεί από τις 15 Ιουλίου.

It started when we were dancin’
It got heavy when we got to the bathroom.
We didn’t go back to her place,
We went to some place where she cat-sits.
She said, “I know I look tired, but everything’s fried, here in Memphis.”

Man, they want to know exactly which bathroom…
Dude, does it make any difference? It can’t be important…

Yeah, sure, I’ll tell my story, again…

In bar-light, she looked all right;
In daylight, she looked desperate
That’s all right, I was desperate, too
I’m getting pretty sick of this interview.
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis

I think she drove a new Mustang
I guess it might be a rental
I remember she had satellite radio
I guess she seemed a bit nervous,
Do you think I’m that stupid? Well, what the hell?

I’ll tell the story, again…

In bar-light, she looked all right;
In daylight, she looked desperate
That’s all right, I was desperate, too
I’m getting pretty sick of this interview
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis

Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
Subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis

I went there on business, subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
I went there on business, subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
I went there on business, subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis
I went there on business, subpoenaed in Texas, sequestered in Memphis

Klaus Schulze & Lisa Gerrard - Liquid Coincidence 5 (part)



Υπέροχο το Farscape, αποτέλεσμα της συνεργασίας του Klaus Schulze και της Lisa Gerrard που αποτελείται από 2cd. Εδώ είναι ένα μέρος μόνο από το Liquid Coincidence 5. Τα κομμάτια έχουν όλα διάρκεια μεγαλύτερη των 13 λεπτών και τον ίδιο τίτλο ξεχωρίζοντας μόνο από τον αύξοντα αριθμό τους.

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama / Free Bird / Saturday Night Special / That Smell /

*-*-*-*-*
31 χρόνια συμπληρώνονται από την τραγική συντριβή του αεροσκάφους που μετέφερε τους Lynyrd Skynyrd στις 20 Οκτωβρίου του 1977 και είχε σαν αποτέλεσμα το θάνατο των Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines, του βοηθού road manager Dean Kilpatrick και των πιλότων Walter McCreary και William Gray. Μόλις 3 μέρες πριν είχαν κυκλοφορήσει το Street Survivors. Η τραγική ειρωνεία είναι πως είχαν σκοπό να μην ξαναχρησιμοποιήσουν το συγκεκριμένο αεροπλάνο άλλη φορά και θα το εγκατέλειπαν μετά την άφιξή τους στο Baton Rogue.


Η MCA αποφάσισε την αλλαγή του εξωφύλλου του Street Survivors με αυτό στο μαύρο φόντο κάνοντας την αρχική έκδοση συλλεκτική.


Αργότερα το αρχικό εξώφυλλο επανήλθε όταν το Street Survivors κυκλοφόρησε σε cd.

Sweet Home Alabama


--

Big wheels keep on turning
Carry me home to see my kin
Singing songs about the Southland
I miss Alabamy once again
And I think its a sin, yes

Well I heard mister Young sing about her
Well, I heard ole Neil put her down
Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you

In Birmingham they love the governor
Now we all did what we could do
Now Watergate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you?
Tell the truth

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you
Here I come Alabama

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they've been known to pick a song or two
Lord they get me off so much
They pick me up when I'm feeling blue
Now how about you?

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you

Sweet home Alabama
Oh sweet home baby
Where the skies are so blue
And the governor's true
Sweet Home Alabama
Lordy
Lord, I'm coming home to you
Yea, yea Montgomery's got the answer



*************
Free Bird


--

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.

Bye, bye, its been a sweet love.
Though this feeling I can't change.
But please don't take it badly,
'Cause Lord knows I'm to blame.
But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you'll never change.
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.
Lord help me, I can't change.

Saturday Night Special


--

Two feets they come a creepin'
Like a black cat do
And two bodies are lyin' naked
Creeper think he got nothin' to lose
So he creeps into this house, yeah
And unlocks the door
And while a man reaching for his trousers
Shoots him full of .38 holes

(Chorus)
Its a Saturday night special
Got a barrel that's blue and cold
Ain't no good for nothin'
But put a man six feet in a hole

Big Jim's been drinkin' whiskey
And playing poker on a losin' night
Pretty soon, Big Jim starts a thinkin'
Somebody been cheatin' and lyin'
So Big Jim commences to fightin'
I wouldn't tell you no lie
And Big Jim done grab his pistol
Shot his friend right between the eyes

(Chorus)

Hand guns are made for killin'
Ain't no good for nothin' else
And if you like your whiskey
You might even shoot yourself
So why don't we dump 'em people
To the bottom of the sea
Before some fool come around here
Wanna shoot either you or me



*********
That Smell


---

Whiskey bottles, and brand new cars
Oak tree you're in my way
There's too much coke and too much smoke
Look what's going on inside you
Ooooh that smell
Can't you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you

Angel of darkness is upon you
Stuck a needle in your arm
So take another toke, have a blow for your nose
One more drink fool, will drown you
Ooooh that smell
Can't you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you

Now they call you Prince Charming
Can't speak a word when you're full of 'ludes
Say you'll be all right come tomorrow
But tomorrow might not be here for you
Ooooh that smell
Can't you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you

Hey, you're a fool you
Stick them needles in your arm
I know I been there before

One little problem that confronts you
Got a monkey on your back
Just one more fix, Lord might do the trick
One hell of a price for you to get your kicks
Ooooh that smell
Can't you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you
Ooooh that smell
Can't you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you

Queen + Paul Rodgers - C-lebrity / Say It's Not True

**
Η συνεργασία των Queen με τον Paul Rodgers γέννησε το LP The Cosmos Rocks στις 15 Σεπτεμβρίου. Είχε προηγηθεί το ζωντανό Return of the Champions (2005). Μέχρι τώρα έχουν κυκλοφορήσει 2 single , τα Say It's Not True και C-lebrity. Το Say It's Not True γράφτηκε για την ενίσχυση του ιδρύματος του Nelson Mandela για το AIDS. Όλες οι εισπράξεις από το single θα δοθούν εκεί ενώ το τραγούδι είχε προσφερθεί για ένα διάστημα δωρεάν για κατέβασμα από την επίσημη σελίδα των Queen. Επίσης το τραγούδι σε ακουστική εκδοχή υπήρχε και στο Return of the Champions.

C-lebrity





Ain’t got no hope
Got no idea
What to do
Or why I’m here
Wanna get my face
On your TV
I wanna be heard
I want to be seen

Ain’t got nothin’
No
Nothing
Nothin’ to show
Make me a c-lebrity

I want to be
A face on TV
(I wanna be on your screen)
Then you can see
I’m a c-lebrity

I wanna get my features
In magazines
See this creature on every street
On every screen
Write my life story
Before I’m twenty one
I got to tell the world
They may say I’m dumb but er

Ain’t got nothin’
No
Nothing
Nothing to show
Make me a c-lebrity

I want to be
A face on TV
(I wanna be on your screen)
Then you can see
I’m a c-lebrity

I wanna be a star
In a Broadway musical
They’re gonna love me
I can’t sing or dance at all
Some may say I’m lackadaisical
And if I was real good
I’d stand no chance at all

I want to be
A face on TV
(Yeah I wanna be on your screen)
Then you can see
I’m a c-lebrity
Then you can say
You knew me one day
Then you will see
I’m a c-lebrity

C c-lebrity
Wanna be a c c c-lebrity
Make my dream come true
C c-lebrity
Wanna be a c c c c-lebrity
I wanna be heard
I want to be seen
On every TV screen


Say It's Not True





The harder we play
The faster we fall
When we think that we know it all
We know nothing at all

The letter arrives
Like a bolt from the blue
So what's left of your lives
All your dreams lost to you

Say it ain't true
Say it today
When I open my eyes
Will it all go away

Say it's not true
Say it's not real
Can't be happening to you
Can't be happening to me

It's hard not to cry
It's hard to believe
So much heartache and pain
So much reason to grieve

With the wonders of science
All the knowledge we've stored
Magic cocktails for lives
People just can't afford

Say it's not true
You can say it's not right
So hard to believe
The size of the crime

Say it's not true
You can say it's not real
Could be happened to you
Could be happened to me

Brett Anderson (with Emanuelle Seigner) - Back to You


Από το πολύ όμορφο πρόσφατο δεύτερο LP του Brett Anderson, Wilderness που κυκλοφόρησε σε κανονική μορφή την 1η Σεπτεμβρίου. Συμμετέχει και η Emmanuelle Seigner. Το Back to You είχε κυκλοφορήσει σαν single (δεύτερο προσωπικό του) τον Ιούνιο του 2007 ενώ πρωτοεμφανίστηκε στο δεύτερο άλμπουμ των Pleasure, με τη συμμετοχή του Brett Anderson στη μορφή που μπορείτε να βρείτε εδώ.


You flick your mane and click your fingers again
And draw me back, you call my name
And like a fool, I run right back to you
And dance along to your latest tune

And when the lands slides
And when the planets die
That's when I come back, when I come back to you

And when the sun cools
And when the stars fall
That's when I come back, when I come back to you

You roll those eyes and trap my hand in your thighs
It's slavery but in disguise
'Cos like a fool, I come right back to you
There's nothing else that I can do

And when the pigs fly
And when the planets die
That's when I come back, when I come back to you

And when the sun cools
And when the stars fall
That's when I come back, when I come back to you

And when the lands slides
And when the planets die
That's when I come back, when I come back to you

And when the sun cools
And when the stars fall
That's when I come back, when I come back to you

And when the war machines
Rust eternally
That's when I come back, when I come back to you

And when your heart bleeds
For a love that's dead like me
That's when I come back, when I come back to you.

Emmylou Harris - Not Enough



To Not Enough βρίσκεται στο καινούριο άλμπουμ της Emmylou Harris, All I Intended to Be που κυκλοφορεί από τις 10 Ιουνίου.

Oh my darling, I miss you so.
How I loved you, you'll never know.
Though it's time for me to let you go.
Oh my darling, I'll miss you so.

Can't believe you're really gone for good.
I still hold on to places you once stood.
I should move on, but I never could,
Really believe you're gone for good.

Oh my friend, what could I do?
I just came home to bury you.
The road is long, the road is rough.
Your in my heart, that's not close enough.

All those years, disappear
All my tears, are not enough, not enough.
How can it be the ties that bind,
Cut down deep and are so unkind?
When we lose them we will never find,
Anything stronger than the ties that bind.

I still have your memory.
One or two pictures of you and me.
Life is long and life is tough,
But when you love someone,
Life is not long enough.

The Pretenders- Boots Of Chinese Plastic



Πολλές οι καλές επιστροφές τον τελευταίο καιρό. Ανάμεσα σε αυτές κι εκείνη των The Pretenders με το Break Up the Concrete. Πρώτο single το Boots Of Chinese Plastic.
Κάθε εβδομάδα προσφέρουν ένα διαφορετικό κομμάτι μέσα από την επίσημη σελίδα τους σε συνεργασία με το CBSradio. Αυτή την εβδομάδα δίνουν τη δυνατότητα για κατέβασμα του One Thing Never Changed.

1,2,3,4 Nam Myoho Renge Kyo Buddha please
can you help a little peasant that's begging on her knees
illusion fills my head like an empty can
spent a million lifetimes loving the same man

Whoa! Every drop that run through the vein
always makes it's way back to the heart again
and by the way you look fantastic in your boots of chinese plastic

Hare Krishna, Hare Rama too,
Govinda I am still in love with you
I see you in the birds and in the trees
that's why they call me Krishna Mayee

Whoa! Every drop that run through the vein
always makes it's way back to the heart again
and by the way you look fantastic in your boots of chinese plastic

Hofra told us we should tolerate the people and the things that make me wanna hate
oh have a little mixed mercy on me, this seasoned beauty in this human pageantry
Jesus Christ came down here as a living man
if he can live a life of virtue then I hope I can
unto others as you would have a turn
back here and repeat until you learn, learn, learn

Whoa! Every drop that run through the vein
always makes it's way back to the heart again
every dog that lived his life on a chain knows what it's like WAITING FOR NOTHING!

and by the way you look fantastic in your boots of chinese plastic

Antony and the Johnsons - Another World



Νέο EP κυκλοφόρησαν οι Antony and the Johnsons με τίτλο Another World στις 7 Οκτωβρίου.

I need another place
Will there be peace?
I need another world
This one's nearly gone

Still have too many dreams
Never seen the light
I need another world
A place where I can go

I'm gonna miss the sea
I'm gonna miss the snow
I'm gonna miss the bees
I'll miss the things that grow
I'm gonna miss the trees
I'm gonna miss the sound
I'll miss the animals
I'm gonna miss you all

I need another place
Will there be peace?
I need another world
This one's nearly gone

I'm gonna miss the birds
Singing all this songs
Been kissing this so long

Another world x4

But I watch you like Im made of stone
As you walk away

Im coming to find you if it takes me all night
A witch hunt for another girl
For always and ever is always for you
Your trust
The most gorgeously stupid thing I ever cut in the world

Say hello on a day like today
Say it everytime you move
The way that you look at me now
Makes me wish I was you
It goes deep
It goes deeper still
This touch
And the smile and the shake of your head

Im coming to find you if it takes me all night
Cant stand here like this anymore
For always and ever is always for you
I want it to be perfect
Like before
I want to change it all

Amalia Rodrigues - Lagrima / Madrugada de Alfama / Estranha forma de vida

Εννιά χρόνια συμπληρώνονται σήμερα από την απώλεια άλλης μιας μεγάλης φωνής του 20ου αιώνα, της Amalia Rodrigues στις 6 Οκτωβρίου του 1999.

Lagrima



Cheia de penas
Cheia de penas me deito
E com mais penas
Com mais penas me levanto
No meu peito
Ja me ficou no meu peito
Este jeito
O jeito de querer tanto

Desespero
Tenho por meu desespero
Dentro de mim
Dentro de mim o castigo
Eu nao te quero
Eu digo que nao te quero
E de noite
De noite sonho contigo

Se considero
Que um dia hei-de morrer
No desespero
Que tenho de te nao ver
Estendo o meu xaile
Estendo o meu xaile no chao
Estendo o meu xaile
E deixo-me adormecer

Se eu soubesse
Se eu soubesse que morrendo
Tu me havias
Tu me havias de chorar
Por uma lagrima
Por uma lagrima tua
Que alegria
Me deixaria matar


Madrugada de Alfama



Mora num beco de Alfama
E chamam-lhe a madrugada
Mas ela de tão estouvada
Nem sabe como se chama.
Mora numa água-furtada,
Que é mais alta de Alfama
A que o sol primeiro inflama
Quando acorda a madrugada.

Nem mesmo na Madragoa
Ninguém compete com ela,
Que do alto da janela
Tão cedo beija Lisboa.
E a sua colcha amarela
Faz inveja à Madragoa:
Madragoa não perdoa
Que madruguem mais do que ela.

Mora num beco de Alfama
E chamam-lhe a madrugada,
São mastros de luz doirada
Os ferros da sua cama.
E a sua colcha amarela
A brilhar sobre Lisboa
É como estátua de proa
Que anuncia a caravela...

Estranha forma de vida



Foi por vontade de Deus
Que eu vivo nesta ansiedade
Que todos os ais são meus
Que é toda minha a saudade
Foi por vontade de Deus

Que estranha forma de vida
Tem este meu coração
Vive de vida perdida
Quem lhe daria o condão
Que estranha forma de vida

Coração independente
Coração que não comando
Vives perdido entre a gente
Teimosamente sangrando
Coração independente

Eu não te acompanho mais
Para deixa de bater
Se não sabes onde vais
Porque teimas em correr
Eu não te acompanho mais

Janis Joplin- Ball & Chain / Summertime / To Love Somebody / Maybe / Try (Just a Little Bit Harder) /



38 χρόνια συμπληρώθηκαν προχθες 4 Οκτωβρίου από το θάνατο της Janis Joplin


Ball & Chain


Sitting down by my window,
Whoa, whoa, looking at the rain.
Whoa, down by my window, baby,
And all around me,
I said suddenly I felt the rain.
Somethin' grabbed a hold of me, darling,
Honey, it felt to me, honey like, yeah, a ball and chain.
Oh honey, you know what I mean,
It just hurts me.

Say, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, honey, it can't be
Whoa, it can't be, babe,
Said no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, hey.
Whoa, baby, it just can't be
Every time I want to reach out my hand.
No, no, no, no, no, babe, baby, never, no, no,
Never, never, no, no, no.
Here you gone today, but I wanted to love you, darling,
Oh, till the end of time,
Yeah! All right!

Love's got a hold on me baby
Feels like a ball and chain.
Oh, love just draggin' me down, yeah yeah yeah,
Feels like, honey sometimes it feels honey like a ball, yeah like a ball and a chain
Wonder why when I did the very best I could to love you
You wanted to leave me here, honey in so much pain
Come on, honey, I want you to tell me, please, yeah.

Say oh, oh, oh, oh,
Honey this can't be
No, no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no yeah.
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Honey, this can't be just because I want to want you
Does this mean I have to hide to cry, cry all the time ?
I just wanted to love you, darling,
Every day, oh, whoa, till the, to the very end, to the end of time,
Yeah, no no no no no, hit it!

Love's got a hold on me, baby,
Feels like a ball and chain.
Oh, love's holdin' on to me,
Feels to me, oh like a ball and a chain
Honey somethin' will grab around the knees, grab me in my heart,
Feels to me like a ball and a chain now,
Yeah, alright, yeah!

Say oh, oh oh oh,
Honey this can't be
Tell me please what am I askin' now,
It can't be babe
I know it just can't be, darling, no no.
Whoa whoa whoa, whoa darling don't you feel me reachin' out
Tell me, tell me, darling please
Tell, tell, tell me darling please, I'm gonna need it,
I want you to hear me baby
Tell me why, sometimes darling
I said sometimes I feel I got to know why
Sometimes I feel, honey, honey that I need to know why
I said baby when I ask you
I could use a little help sometime
When I say, I say tell me, come on man,
Tell me, tell me, babe,
Honey I never understood, why when I want to work my hands out,
I want to wear my hands out, I try the very best I can, babe
Why you always want to go, honey and let me down baby.
I said why I always wanna go, honey drag me around.
Seems like anything, it could be the telephone company man,
it could be the man I love, I always got something else going, you know what I mean ?
Over on the other side, say, not quite got it right this very minute.
I'm so sorry babe, I said I'm so very sorry babe,
But I never did promise you nothing, right ? I see what you mean.
Come on, man, now come on, that ain't the name of it,
And that ain't the end of it, you know what I mean.
Sometimes, it feels just about breaking things, you know what I mean.
Just like, just like a grave, just like a grave to call
Just like a cry to call.
Honey I never understood and I said please
Lord, I swear I never understood and I say please
I want you to help me, fill it up baby,
I want you to help me, I said allow me to hear
Please, please, please, please, please, please, please,
Honey make me understand why love just feels so heavy on me, darling,
Feels so bad on my back, babe,
Feels just like a ball,
Feels like a ball, ball, oh daddy feels like a ball,
And a chain.

Summertime


Summertime, time, time,
Child, the living's easy.
Fish are jumping out

And your ma is so good-looking, baby.
She's a-looking good now,
Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby now,

Don't you cry, don't you cry.

One of these mornings
You're gonna rise, rise up singing,
You're gonna spread your wings, child,
And take, take to the sky,
Lord, the sky.

But until that morning,
Honey, n-n-nothing's going to harm ya,
No, no, no no, no no, no...
Don't you cry — cry.

Trying to hold somebody when you're lonely
The way I loved you, baby,
And I just want you to know I tried.

Oh I know that there's a way
'Cause everybody came to me one time and said,
"Honey, you can do anything,
Every little thing," and I think I can.
Oh, but what good, what good,

'Cause I can't find you with my love,
And I can't find you babe, oh anywhere.

Oh, to love anybody.

And you never ever, ever did,

And I tried to help you darling.
But you never ever, no you never ever,
No you never ever, no you never ever,
I know that you know that
No you never ever, ever, ever,
Oh let me throw my love,
Throw my love all around you, yeah.

Thievery Corporation - Warning Shots



Στις 23 Σεπτεμβρίου οι Thievery Corporation κυκλοφόρησαν το νέο τους άλμπουμ Radio Retaliation που ανοίγει με το Warning Shots. Το LP χαρακτηρίζουν οι έντονα πολιτικοποιημένοι στίχοι. Οι Thievery Corporation θα εμφανιστούν την επόμενη Παρασκευή 10 Οκτωβρίου στη Θεσσαλονίκη και το Σάββατο 11 του μηνός στην Αθήνα.
----------
They try their best just to mash up the resistance
Warning shots and sirens from a distance
Riot gear and barricade for an instance
And the words from mi mouth, mi nuh response
Hollywood sending signals of destruction
Stereotype the ghetto youths as the bad man
Overcome the rough times and we grow strong
Step up in a life, now them want to shake we hand
We are eternal, made of the creator
Won't fall to the soul-less devastators
Divide and conquer, and try to separate us
Up to this day, them still try fi rape us

Travis - Something Anything



Πρώτο single για το καινούριο άλμπουμ των Travis, Ode to J. Smith που κυκλοφόρησε στις 29 Σεπτεμβρίου θεωρείται το Something Anything αν και είχε προηγηθεί η κυκλοφορία του J. Smith

Like a melody that is impossible to play away
In my memory there's a part of you that's gone away
To keep my mind from wondering
I'm wondering
To keep myself on falling
I'm following

Something Anything just to keep on living
Just to keep on breathing for a moment longer
Something Anything just to keep on living
Just to keep on breathing for a moment longer

I'd tell you anything if I had anything to say ehh
I keep a battle in 'cause there's a time and there's a place for this
I keep my story where it is
An act this it
Don't even all wanna this
When all I need is

Something Anything just to keep on living
Just to keep on breathing for a moment longer
Something Anything just to keep on living
Just to keep on breathing for a moment longer

Alicia Keys & Jack White - Another Way To Die



Το Another Way to Die θα ντύσει μουσικά την 22η εμφάνιση του James Bond στο Quantum of Solace (6 Νοεμβρίου στην Ελλάδα ενώ η παγκόσμια πρεμιέρα θα γίνει στις 29 Οκτωβρίου) και η ορχηστρική του εκδοχή διαφήμιση γνωστού αναψυκτικού.
Είναι το πρώτο ντουέτο στην ιστορία των ταινιών με θέμα το James Bond.
***********
JW: Another ringer with the slick trigger finger for Her Majesty
AK: Another one with the golden tone voice and then your fantasy
JW: Another bill from a killer turned a thrill into a tragedy

CHORUS:
A door left open
A woman walking by
A drop in the water
A look in the eye
A phone on the table
A man on your side
Someone that you think that you can trust is just
Another way to die

JW: Another tricky little gun giving solace to the one that will never see the sunshine
AK: Another inch of your life sacrificed for your brother in the nick of time
JW: Another dirty money, heaven sent honey turning on a dime

[CHORUS]

It’s just another way to…

Hey…

It’s just another way to…

You’ve got to….

JW: Another girl with her finger on the world singing do what you wanna hear
AK: Another gun thrown down and surrendered took away your fear
JW & AK: Another man that stands right behind you looking in the mirror

[CHORUS]

It’s just another way…

Suit ‘em up, bang bang!

Bang, bang, bang, bang.

Van der Graaf Generator - Interference patterns





Δε θα μπορούσε ποτέ κανείς να κατηγορήσει τον Peter Hammill αλλά και τους υπόλοιπους Van der Graaf Generator, ότι θυσίασαν την ποιότητα για χάρη της εμπορικής επιτυχίας Δε θα μπορούσε φυσικά να είναι εξαίρεση το Trisector , στο οποίο συμμετέχουν τα 3 από τα 4 μέλη του βασικού πυρήνα του συγκροτήματος. Το Trisector είναι το πρώτο ολοκληρωμένο στούντιο άλμπουμ τους μετά από 31 χρόνια.

All that we see illusory
every assumption based on blind faith alone...
On with the motley, bring it home!

Everything's formed from particles,
all that you see is a construction of waves.
Hold onto both thoughts,
under general relativity
the cradle connected to the grave.

Luminous aether dissipates,
Michelson-Morley with a point to disprove,
Millikan oil drops
and the cargo-cult science evaporates,
improbable physics on the move.

Nearer and nearer,
it's clear that in interference
what happens when matter shatters
is wantonly quantum and nature's got
some surprises in store right now.

All that we are illusory,
every observance based on physical law.
Only a fool would think us
ready to face with certainty
all that our future's heading for.

Nearer and nearer, it's clearer,
we're only here for an eye-blink,
a psychic mind-trick.
The proofs that we use
are at best projections
but let's hope they'll see us through.

The interference patterns help us to know
the gap between a simple "yes" and a "no",
the heart-felt beat that gets us ready to go
and, as above, we'll find out what is below
the interference patterns.

Walls Of Jericho - The American Dream



Πολύ επίκαιροι οι Walls of Jericho στο ομώνυμο τραγούδι από το πρόσφατο LP τους The American Dream

f**k the American Dream.
I know it all too well, I've watched my whole life.
I've felt those callused hands and looked into those broken eyes.
One more bleeding heart that will never see its time.
You suffer to survive, it will bury you alive.

f**k this place, burn it down. Everything I've loved is gone.
This is not my home, I've played my final song.
Tear us down, free us all.

Sell your soul for something meaningless.
A slow death for the corporate mess, and we call this happiness.
What are we left with in the end? Defeat.
A lifetime of obedience kicking in your teeth.

f**k this place, burn it down. Everything I've loved is gone.
This is not my home, I've played my final song.
Tear us down, free us all.

We were sold a promise of a better tomorrow,
f**k the American Dream.
We were told that our choices were our own,
f**k the American Dream.
Promised the opportunity of a lifetime,
f**k the American Dream.
Deceived we could be all we can be.
f**k the American Dream.
