Hey valentina tell ur mama
She should give me a call
When she get tired of runnin'
After you down the hall
B4 you came on2 the scene it was a hollywood mess
Ur mama was a movie queen
She was one of the best

Every boy had the hots 4 her,
Around the world even girls adored her
Mexican bombshell
Come 2 conquer the west

Hey valentina tell ur mama
She should give me a call
When she get tired of runnin'
After you down the hall
And she's all worn out
From those late night feedings
And she ready 4 another
Rock 'n roll meeting
Oh valentina tell ur mama
She should give me a call

Ur uncle sam used 2 hold it down
Every day

Watch the bootyguards
Scarecrow the buzzards away
Like an aeroplane the time flies over
So many guys they couldn't get
Ur sweet little mama 2 stay

Curvier than
A fender stratocaster guitar...
Reality bender... from no greencard
2 superstar

Broken up slang even when
The king of hollywood ain't that tall
Sho as betty's ugly
Ur mama's bigger than 'em all
Hey valentina

Tell ur mama she should call up mia
In advance

If penelope wants 2 cruz
There ain't no way that we ain't gon dance
Tell ur mama should should give me a call
That's all

I was feeling sad
Can't help looking back
Highways flew by
Run, run, run away
No sense of time
Want you to stay
Want keep you inside

Run, run, run away
Lost, lost, lost my mind
Want you to stay
Want you to be my prize

Run, run, run away
Lost, lost, lost my mind
Want you to stay
Want you to be my prize

I was feeling sad
Can't help looking back
Highways flew by
Run, run, run away
No sense of time
Want you to stay
Want keep you inside

All along, not so strong without these open arms.
Hold on tight.
All along, not that strong without these open arms.
Lie beside.
All along, not so strong without these open arms.
Ride beside.

Run, run, run away
Lost, lost, lost my mind
Want you to stay
Want you to be my prize

Run, run, run away
Lost, lost, lost my mind
Want you to stay
Want you to be my prize

The Gathering - Pale Traces



Πιστοί στο να κυκλοφορούν στούντιο άλμπουμ ανά τρία χρόνια την τρέχουσα δεκαετία οι The Gathering αναμένεται να κυκλοφόρησουν σύντομα (το Μάιο) το The West Pole που θα περιέχει και το Pale Traces. Με το The West Pole ξεκινά και η συνεργασία τους με την πολύ καλή νέα τους τραγουδίστρια Silje Wergeland. To Pale Traces θα κυκλοφορήσει και με ισπανικούς στίχους στο EP City From Above που κι αυτό αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει μέσα στη χρονιά.

When did you loose your smile?
Were you walking all alone at night
searching endlessly for a way
to join the pieces of what you used to be?
Let me hold you for a moment

When did you loose your smile
Was it all too much to take at once
that suddenly you felt you had nothing left?

The coldest winter
can’t freeze your heart
one day you’ll see that even
the longest winter passes by
that through the years I’d still give it all
to hold you for a moment

When did your dream fade out?
Did it seem it wasn’t worth it at all?
Then I’ll try another million ways
to make you understand

The coldest winter can’t freeze your heart
one day you’ll see
that I’d give it all to hold you,
that even when all hope is gone
I’d still give it all
to hold you for a moment

One day you’ll see
those heavy clouds will soon make way
for brighter days

One day you’ll see
I’ve been here for you all along
and I will never let go of your hand

One day you’ll see

Johnny Thunders - In Cold Blood / So Alone + New York Dolls - Looking for a Kiss

+++
18 χρόνια κλείνουν σήμερα από το θάνατο του
Johnny Thunders στις 23 Απριλίου του 1991. Ο Johnny Thunders έγινε γνωστός από τη συμμετοχή του στους New York Dolls αλλά και η μετέπειτα πορεία του δικαίωσε τη φήμη που είχε αποκτήσει.

Johnny Thunders - In Cold Blood


Well, I was raised in the street
A city boy if you please
I probobly forgot more, than you'll ever be
No doubt about it

You gotta (bop?) down, down the street Hey!
You afraid of those creeps?
Guardian angles are what we need
New York city police are so sweet

In cold blood
In cold blood

Well you probobly think im pretty mad
just because i like it down there
well dont you worry dear
you'll never end up dead

in cold blood

Well no one here gets out alive
livin here its suicide
Avanue A you might survive
Riverton you'll finally die

in cold blood
in cold blood

----
Johnny Thunders - So Alone



Well I'll just tell you what you wanna hear
I won't break your girlish fears
I try to get close, I couldn't get near
If I tell you too much, baby, I'll get smeared

Said red light, green light
You never stop
Always tryin’ to word me out
Now I know, what you’re boppin’ about
I'll just tell you what you wanna hear
If I tell you too much, baby, I'll get smeared

(spoken) Seems like everytime
I try to love somebody
It's that same old story
I try so hard
I give it everything I got
But in the end
I'm the one whos

I'm so all alone
I'm so alone
I'm so all alone
I'm so alone

New York Dolls - Looking for a Kiss



I always seen you, just before the dawn
When all the other kids, where just draggin along
I couldn't believe the way it seemed to be
Rememberin the things, you used to say to me


(About...)
You know I can't be wastin time
Cus gotta get my fun
I got to keep on movin
Cant stop til it's all done


Listen when I tell ya, you got no time for fix
Cus I just gotta make it, cant afford to miss
And there's one reason, I'm tellin you this
I feels bad....
And I'm lookin for a kiss


Why wontcha tell me, why those kids are moving so slow
Is it just because they dont have no place to go
When the day starts breakin, the sun is gonna shine
It's hard to sleep, when I been cryin


(And...)
All you ladies are on
Yor way to church (I'm beggin)
Will I just be a' roamin
Lookin for the thing that I search


Listen when I tell ya, you got no time for fix
Cus I just gotta make it, cant afford to miss
And there's one reason, I'm tellin you this
I feels bad....
And I'm lookin for a kiss


Well I been lookin for a real hot kiss...
You think it's bad, but you know that its true
So why don't let me live baby
When I'm lookin for a kiss


When everyone goes to your house, they shoot up in your room
Most of them are beautiful, but so obsessed with gloom
I aint gonna be here, when they all get home
They're always lookin at me, they wont leave me alone


I didnt come here, lookin for no fix (I know...)
I been houndin the street all night late baby
Justa lookin for a kiss


I been fixin a kiss


I didnt come here, lookin for no fix (I know...)
I been haulin booty, all night long
Just lookin for a kiss

Neil Young - Light A Candle



Neil Young - Light A Candle



Και αυτό από το καινούριο άλμπουμ του Neil Young - Fork in the Road

Instead of cursing the darkness,
Light a candle for where we're going,
there's something ahead, worth fighting for.

When the light of time is on us,
You will see our moment come,
And the living soul inside will carry on.

It's a chance to give new meaning to every move we make,
In the cavern, in the cave, where we come from.

When the light of dawn is on us,
We will see what we can be,
And the ancient ones can sleep an easy sleep

In the hallways of the ages, on the road to history,
What we do now will always be with us.

It's a chance to give new meaning to every move we make,
In the caverns, in the caves, where we come from.

Instead of cursing the darkness,
Light a candle for where we're going,
there's something ahead, worth looking for.

When the light of time is on us,
We will see our moment come,
And the living soul inside will carry on.

Light a candle in the darkness,
So others might see ahead,
Light a candle in the darkness, when you go.

Light a candle in the darkness,
So others might see ahead,
Light a candle in the darkness, when you go.

You can play my guitar
See it where it'll go
Send this song
To a distant star
While the rhythm explodes
Just singing a song
Won't change the world

You can drive my car
Feel how it rolls
Feel a new energy
As it quietly rolls
Just singing a song
Won't change the world

Just singing a song
Won't change the world
Just singing a song
Won't change the world

You can sing about change
Well
You're making your own
You can be
What you're trying to say
On a big wheel road
Just singing a song
Won' change the world

You could play my guitar
Go where it goes
Send this song
To a distant star
While the rhythm explodes
Just singing the song
Won't change the world

Peter Doherty - Last Of The English Roses



Πρώτο προσωπικό άλμπουμ για τον Peter Doherty το Grace/Wastelands και το Last Of The English Roses είναι το πρώτο σινγκλ από αυτό. Το Grace/Wastelands κυκλοφορεί από τις 13 Μαρτίου και έχει πάρει δικαίως πολύ καλές κατά κανόνα κριτικές.

Honey, honey
My you did look dapper in your mothers
Old green scarf
With your famous Auntie Aurthur’s trousers on
You were slapped by that slapper
And how we all laughed
But she laughed the loudest
Oh in ‘93
You could charm the bees nees of the bees

“Cheeky” you’d say and we all fell around
Rolling ’round the playground

“Saucy” you’d say and we all fell about
Rolling ’round the playground

In the ‘94
We all sang
Skipping and dancing hand in hand
Yeah with all the boys together
And all the girls together

She’s the last of the English roses
She’s the last of the English roses

(I wish to be so whirl awake again)
She knows her Rodneys from her Stanleys
And her Kappas from her Reeboks
And her tit from her tat
And Winstons from her Enoks
It’s fine and take what I
Coming out, coming alive
Round the Snooker table
You dance the Frutti-Tutti

She almost spilled her lager
Toasting girls of great beauty

But the closing moved by
Coming of age, coming alive
All the boys together
And all the girls together

She’s the last of the English roses
She’s the last of the English roses
Yeah she’s the last of the English roses
She’s the last of, last of the English
English roses

Ah sometimes you can’t change
There’ll be no place
Ce soir, disons chez moi
Enfin je compte de toi
Je te drague la rose mystique
Tu l’arrose mystique?
Ha, vas-y
C’est mon monde de soleil

Face check I walk this beach
I'm frying in the heat in the cauldron stir me
Chomp down my diamond teeth I ain't got
The simple things in life I feel like
You have got to witness
This is your last retreat
My last repeat

All my friends are as sharp as razors
cut you down if you touch the faders
High class girls hung in elevators
Now we have got the floor

Get loose get loose

You can't miss me I'm still alive
Snake skin shoes I'm pleading homicide
Come on and feel this I'm still alive
Joker meet you on the other side

Banshie I hear you call
We need to raise the dead we need to raise the people
Cut throat this blood runs thick
It is true the simple things in life have been lost
You have got to witness
We are the last beatniks
The lost heretics

All my friends are as sharp as razors
cut you down if you touch the faders
Listen up all you masqueraders
Now we have got the floor
Now we have got the floor

Get loose get loose

You can't miss me I'm still alive
Snake skin shoes I'm pleading homicide
Come on and feel this I'm still alive
Joker meet you on the other side

Βασίλης Λιάγκας - Γαλαξείδι (Γιάννη Σακκαλή)



Αφιερωμένο στο Γαλαξείδι το ομώνυμο ποίημα του Γιάννη Σακκαλή, που μελοποίησε και τραγούδησε ο Βασίλης Λιάγκας. Το "Γαλαξείδι" βρίσκεται στο βιβλίο του Γιάννη Σακκαλή: Ποιήματα σαν παραμύθια.

Ήλιος που καίει της αγάπης σου η χαρά
σαν την αρμύρα στην αιώνια τρικυμία
μαζί σου φεύγοντας σαλπάρει η νοσταλγία
στο πεπρωμένο που δεν έχει πια πανιά

Από της θάλασσας τη νιότη ως τη στεριά
Όνειρο θείο η δική σου οπτασία
ξαναμετράει μες τα πέλαγα τα πλοία
νάβρει που μπάρκαρε η ψυχή σου και πονά

Το γιόμα γίνεσαι στων γλάρων τα φτερά
Η μαγική μενεξεδένια πολιτεία
και λες στα κύματα την ίδια ιστορία
λόγια της πλώρης που τα παίρνει η μοναξιά


Από της θάλασσας τη νιότη ως τη στεριά
Όνειρο θειο η δική σου οπτασία
ξαναμετράει μες τα πέλαγα τα πλοία
νάβρει που μπάρκαρε η ψυχή σου και πονά

Bat For Lashes - Daniel



Το Daniel διάλεξε για πρώτο σινγκλ από το νέο της άλμπουμ Two Suns η Natasha Khan (δεύτερο που χρησιμοποίησε το όνομα Bat for Lashes ). Το Two Suns κυκλοφορεί από τις 3 Απριλίου .

Daniel when I first saw you
I knew that you had a flame in your heart
And under under our blue skies
Marble movie skies
I found a home in your eyes
We'll never be apart

And when the fires came
The smell of cinders and rain
Perfumed almost everything
We laughed and laughed and laughed
And in the golden blue
Cryin' took me to the darkest place
And you have set fire to my heart

When I run in the dark, Daniel
To a place that's worst ?
Under a sheet of rain in my heart
Daniel
I dream of home

But in a goodbye bed
With my arms around your neck
Into our love the tears crept
Just catch in the eye of the storm
And as my heart ran round
My dreams pulled me from the ground
Forever to search for the flame
For home again
For home again

When I run in the dark, Daniel
To a place that's worst?
Under a sheet of rain in my heart
Daniel
I dream of home

When I run in the dark, Daniel
To a place that's worst
Under a sheet of rain in my heart
Daniel
I dream of home

To the next whiskey bar
Oh, don't ask why
Oh, don't ask why
Show me the way

Anne Kerry - Pirate Jenny



Ahh you people can watch while i'm scrubbing these floors
And i'm scrubbing these floors while you're gawking
Maybe once you tip me and it makes you feel swell
In this crummy southern town
In this pit of hotel
But you'll never guess to who you're talking
No
You'll never guess to who you're talking

Then one night there's a scream in the night
And you wonder: 'who could that have been ?'
And you see me kind of grinning while i'm scrubbing
And you say 'what she got to grin ?'
I'll tell ya
There's a ship
The black freighter
With a skull on it's mast-head
Will be coming in

You gentlemen say: 'hey gal, finish them floors
What's wrong with you ? earn your keep here'
You toss me your tips and look to the ships
But i'm counting your heads as i'm making the beds
'cause there's nobody gonna sleep here tonight
No
Nobody
No-one
No-one

Then one night there's a scream in the night
And you say: 'who's that kicking up a row?'
And you see me kinda staring out the window
And you say: 'what she got to stare at now ?'
I'll tell ya
There's a ship
The black freighter
Turns around in the harbour
Shooting guns from her bow

Well you gentlemen can wipe those smiles off your face
'cause every building in town is a flat one
This whole frigging place will be down to the ground
Only this cheap hotel standing up, safe and sound
And you yell: 'why do they spare that one ?
'why?
'why the hell do they spare that one ?'

All the night through with the noise and to do
And you wonder: 'who is that person that lives up there ?'
And you see me stepping out in the morning
Looking fine with a ribbon in my hair
Well just look at me now
And a ship
The black freighter
Runs a flag up it's mast-head
And a cheer rings the air. hey!

My ??? on the dock is a swarming with men
Coming out from the ghostly freighter
They're moving in the shadows where no-one can see
And they're chaining up people
And delivering 'em to me
Asking me: 'kill them now or later ?'
Asking me: 'kill them now or later ?'

Noon by the clock and so still at the dock
You can hear a fog horn miles away
And in that quiet of death i'll say:
'right now !'
'right now !'
And they pile up the bodies
And i'll say: 'that'll learn you.
That'll learn you.'

And the ship
The black freighter
Disappears out to sea
And
On
It
Is
Me !

Candlemass - A Sorcerer's Pledge / Samples from new album







Σήμερα κυκλοφορούν το νέο τους LP Death Magic Doom οι Candlemass.
To A Sorcerer's Pledge από το Epicus Doomicus Metallicus (1986) είναι από τα κομμάτια που τους καθιέρωσαν σε μια πορεία με ελάχιστες αποκλίσεις την οποία ακολουθούν και στο Death Magic Doom.

Part I
Time stands still in these ancient halls
Only the castle itself can tell what it keeps
Dark are the secrets between these walls
hidden in shadows of death, while the sorcerer sleeps

Where is the morning
where is the sun
Thousand years of midnight
the sunrise is gone

An old man marked by a life so long
Is sleeping so sweet while his magic is growing so strong
Waiting still for new times to come
a thousands years to see if he has won

Where is the morning
where is the sun
A thousand years of midnight
the sunrise is gone
Part II
What has he done ?
Why is he sleeping so long ?
He wants to live for evermore

Soon is he young
When will he open his eyes ?
When he is strong enough to rule

Back in our time goes the legend
of a sorcerer so old
He drank the blood of the virgin to be reborn
Soon a tyrant will conquer
So spoke the wise
of the day when the sorcerer will rise

Blood is his wine
The sorcerer is cheating on time
and he'll be stronger than before

Cursed be the sun
the women will weep for his fun
In the name of his magic so strong

Part III
A thousand years have gone
Armageddon hasn't come
Only the cry of a child echoes in the dark

Backwards goes time
as the stars are passing by
and nothing remains of this foolishman except his fate

They're
Selling postcards
Of the hanging
They're painting
The passports brown
The beauty parlor
Is filled with sailors
The circus is in town
Here comes
The blind commissioner
They've got him in a trance
One hand is tied
To the tight-rope walker
The other is in his pants
And the riot squad
They're restless
They need somewhere to go
As Lady
And I look out tonight
From Desolation Row

Cinderella
She seems so easy
"It takes one to know one"
She smiles
And puts her hands
In her back pockets
Bette Davis style
And in comes Romeo
He's moaning
"You Belong to Me I Believe"
And someone says
" You're in the wrong place
My friend
You better leave"
And the only sound that's left
After the ambulances go
Is Cinderella sweeping up
On Desolation Row

Now the moon is almost hidden
The stars are beginning to hide
The fortunetelling lady
Has even taken
All her things inside
All except for Cain and Abel
And the hunchback of Notre Dame
Everybody is making love
Or else expecting rain
And the Good Samaritan
He's dressing
He's getting ready
For the show
He's going
To the carnival tonight
On Desolation Row

Now Ophelia
She's 'neath the window
For her I feel so afraid
On her twenty-second birthday
She already is an old maid

To her death
Is quite romantic
She wears an iron vest
Her profession's her religion
Her sin is her lifelessness
And though her eyes
Are fixed upon
Noah's great rainbow
She spends her time peeking
Into Desolation Row

Einstein
Disguised as Robin Hood
With his memories in a trunk
Passed this way an hour ago
With his friend
A jealous monk
He looked
So immaculately frightful
As he bummed a cigarette
Then he went off
Sniffing drainpipes
And reciting the alphabet
Now you
Would not think
To look at him
But he was famous long ago
For playing
The electric violin
On Desolation Row

Dr. Filth, he keeps his world
Inside of a leather cup
But all his sexless patients
They're trying to blow it up
Now his nurse, some local loser
She's in charge
Of the cyanide hole
And she also keeps
The cards that read
"Have Mercy on His Soul"
They all play
On penny whistles
You can hear them blow
If you lean
Your head out far enough
From Desolation Row

Across the street
They've nailed the curtains
They're getting ready
For the feast
The Phantom of the Opera
A perfect image of a priest
They're spoonfeeding Casanova
To get him to feel more assured
Then they'll kill him
With self-confidence
After poisoning him with words

And the Phantom's
Shouting to skinny girls
"Get Outa Here
If You Don't Know
Casanova is just being
Punished for going
To Desolation Row"

Now at midnight all the agents
And the superhuman crew
Come out and round up everyone
That knows more than they do
Then they bring them to the factory
Where the heart-attack machine
Is strapped across their shoulders
And then the kerosene
Is brought down from the castles
By insurance men who go
Check to see
That nobody is escaping
To Desolation Row

Praise be to Nero's Neptune
The Titanic sails at dawn
And everybody's shouting
"Which Side Are You On?"
And Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot
Fighting in the captain's tower
While calypso singers laugh at them
And fishermen hold flowers
Between the windows of the sea
Where lovely mermaids flow
And nobody has to think too much
About Desolation Row

Yes
I received your letter yesterday
(About the time the door knob broke)
When you asked how I was doing
Was that some kind of joke?
All these people that you mention
Yes, I know them, they're quite lame
I had to rearrange their faces
And give them all another name
Right now I can't read too good
Don't send me no more letters no
Not unless you mail them
From Desolation Row
