Barcelona - It's About Time / Response


Με πρόσθετα καινούρια τραγούδια επανακυκλοφόρησαν σε καινούρια εταιρία Universal/Motown Records) οι Barcelona το πολύ καλό άλμπουμ τους Absolutes (πρώτη κυκλοφορία 2007). Τα νέα τραγούδια είναι τα "Come back when you can", "The takers" και "Faded" .

It's About Time



One more day down these stairs
His room is cold now and it hurts like hell
He holds tight, he stares
It’s almost over and it’s running through his head
They don’t know me, they don’t know more than I show

She’s walking up to him so slowly
It’s about time, it’s about time to fly away, but wait
This one is different cause she’s lonely
Fold your wings, you’ll need them more one day

One more smile, one more bed
Her eyes are dark now and they hurt like hell
She’s so still, she’s dead
She knows it’s over, she holds her head and says,
They can’t love me, they can’t love what I don’t show

He’s walking up to her so slowly
It’s about time, it’s about time to fly away, but wait
This one is different cause he’s lonely
Fold your wings, you’ll need them more

There’ve been too many times when I’ve drowned you with these perfect lines
And you’ve heard me say that I can cure you
This morning I woke up with this overwhelming fear of love
And I’m not sure if I can resurrect you

I’m walking up to you so slowly
It’s about time, it’s about time to fly away, but wait
I swear it’s different cause I’m lonely
Fold your wings, you’ll need them more one day

Response



This space is tight, I’m running out of air
And for the moment, you all can fit
This frenzied state has almost finished me
And I won’t bide my time to see it blow

Driving now against the flow of lights and I can see the fault in every home
They can try to hold to creatures in at night
And My response will be angry fist and teeth

I’ll fight you all

We’ll tear down this place, she told it to him softly
Don’t use your heart, it only makes you slow
I’ll tear down this place, I’ve known it since she told me
Make sure to take everything they have

I’ll fight you all
I’ll fight you
I’ll fight you all (x4)

We’ll tear down this place, she told it to him softly
Don’t use your heart, it only makes you slow
I’ll tear down this place, I’ve known it since she told me
Make sure to take everything they have

Make sure to take everything they have

Dolores O'Riordan – The Journey



Το πρώτο σινγκλ από το νέο άλμπουμ της Dolores O'Riordan, No Baggage που θα κυκλοφορήσει στις 21 Αυγούστου.

When I was lost
I saw you pointing towards the sun
I know I am not the only one standing here
and in the darkness I was walking through the night
I could see your guiding light, very clear

This is your life
This is your moment
This is your life
This is your moment

When I was weak we both went walking on the sand
We were walking hand in hand it appeared
Once set our footprints when you carried me along
It was then that abandoned my fears

This is your life
This is your moment
This is your life
This is your moment

This is your life
This is your moment
This is your life
This is your moment

This is your moment
This is your life
your life
This is your time

Wilco - Bull Black Nova





Στις 30 Ιουνίου κυκλοφόρησε το Wilco (The Album), το έβδομο LP των Wilco.
Στο άλμπουμ συμμετέχει και η Feist κάνοντας φωνητικά στο You and I.

It's in my hair, it's on my clothes
It's in the river, over the road
It's shining down, my angry star
Hanging off the hood of my car
Not going far, not going far

It's coming down, they're coming up the shoulders
What have they found? I wonder if they'd know
I'm in a bull black Chevy Nova, silhouetted by the setting sun
This can't be undone, this can't be undone

If I am the one, blood on the sofa
Blood in the sink, blood in the trunk
High at the wheel of a bull black Nova
And I'm sorry as a setting sun
This can't be undone, can't be outrun

It's in my hair, there's blood in the sink
I can't calm down, I can't think
I keep calling, there's blood in the trunk
I can't calm down, I freak out, black out

Arctic Monkeys - Crying Lightning





File:Crying lightning.jpg

Το Crying Lightning είναι το πρώτο σινγκλ του νέου άλμπουμ των Arctic Monkeys - Humbug, που θα αρχίσει να κυκλοφορεί από τις 19 Αυγούστου (31 Αυγούστου στην Ελλάδα).


Sat in the café by the cracker factory,
He were practising a magic trick,
And my thoughts got rude, as you talked and chewed,
On the last of your pick and mix.

Said your mistaken if you thinking that I am gun’ go cold before
As you bit into your strawberry lace,
And then a flip in your attention in the form of a gobstopper,
Is all you have left and all is going to waste.

Your past-times, consisted of the strange,
And twisted and deranged,
And I love that little game you had called,
Crying lightning,
And how you like to aggravate the ice-cream man on rainy afternoons.

The next time that I caught my own reflection,
It was on its way to meet you,
Thinking of excuses to postpone.
You never look like yourself from the side,
But your profile did not hide,
The fact you knew I was approaching your throne.

With folded arms you occupy the bench like toothache
Saw them, puff your chest out like you never lost a war.
And though I try so not to suffer the indignity of a reaction
There was no cracks to grasp or gaps to claw.

And your past-times, consisted of the strange,
And twisted and deranged,
And I hate that little game you had called,
Crying lightning,
And how you like to aggravate the icky man on rainy afternoons.

Uninviting,
But not half as impossible as everyone assumes,
You are crying lightning.

Your past-times, consisted of the strange,
And twisted and deranged,
And I hate that little game you had called,
Crying lightning,
Crying lightning,
Crying lightning,
Crying lightning.

Your past-times, consisted of the strange,
And twisted and deranged,
And I hate that little game you had called,
Cry-ing.

And Also The Trees - A Room Lives in Lucy / Jacob Fleet

30 χρόνια ιστορίας κλείνουν φέτος οι And Also The Trees που κυκλοφόρησαν πρόσφατα το πολύ καλό ακουστικό When the Rains Come που περιέχει επανεκτελεσμένα παλιότερα κομμάτια τους.

A Room Lives in Lucy






I hear voices from another morning
And in the sunlight I feel the room grow
Windows, white curtained and smooth walls
But the night leaves her on the floors
Of a mansion hall
And the feet on the floors
I must get up off the floors
Off the floors... off the floors....
In Lucy lives a room, inside
I feel someone's waking in my room again
She says she's leaving
But she will never go
Wilting while waiting in the dark leaves

She's stretching but she cannot reach
The pale flowers
Watching their petals fall
Like the rain
How it rains... how it rains...
In Lucy lives a room, inside
There are a lot of nice places we could go
There are such a lot of nice
places we could go
There are so many beautiful places
I've seen them somewhere
But where is it we go
With the crumbled statues in the dappled wood
And the gentle laughter swirls round the room
And she's gone
In Lucy lives a room

Jacob Fleet




My name is Jacob Fleet.
I feel the solid world
Revolve beneath my feet.
I stride over plains,
Through the copse
And through the glade...
I pace through the day.

And a voice tells me
'Never stop, never stay,
Don't let your shadow fade'

I scale the steeple streets,
All empty but for song
Wood-smoke and Sabbathe meat.
I pace down the lanes
If I stop my shadow fades...
I walk and I pray.

And the wind tells me
'Oh come back home again'
And the hedges began to hum
'Never stop, never stay,
Don't let your shadow fade.'

My name is Jacob Fleet
I walk the golden mist
Of Alabaster Street
My scant figure strays
Through the lost
Withe lilac lanes
Where heavens angels prey...
But I will not stop or stay,
I rage into the day.

And the wind tells me
'Oh come back home again'
And the hedges began to hum
'Never stop, never stay,
Don't let your shadow fade.'

I saw a girl standing by a pail,
I heard the tell-tale wind
In the windmill sail

The Big Pink - Velvet



Στις 14 Σεπτεμβρίου αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσουν το παρθενικό τους άλμπουμ οι The Big Pink ένα από τα πολλά υποσχόμενα νέα ονόματα της 4AD .


Seen it in my head, burning my heart
Seen it in my past, back in my home
Doesn't make sense, see her again
I don't, know
I felt it for some time, ever not at all
Poison in my head, gun love hurts
I'm not looking for love, but it's hard to resist
I don't recall, me and mistakes

She's the only one, that's the best I've had
I found her in a dream, looking for me
This heart's on fire, I'll bring myself
Up to the force, down again

These arms are mine
Don't matter who they hold
So should i maybe, Just leave love alone
You call out my name, for the love you need
Which you won't find in me

These arms are mine
Don't matter who they hold
You're made for me, and i'll leave love alone
you call out my name for the love you need
Which you won't find in me

Seen it in my head, burning my heart
I found her in a dream, looking for me
Doesn't make sense, see her again
I don't, know

I can see the end, of what I've become
A tale of a love, come and gone
But now my love, no promises
I won't go, falling in love

Daughtry - No Surprise




Το πρώτο σινγκλ από το δεύτερο άλμπουμ των Daughtry - Leave This Town που κυκλοφορεί σήμερα.

I've practiced this for hours, gone round and round
And now I think that I've got it all down
And as I say it louder I love how it sounds
Cause I'm not taking the easy way out
Not wrapping this in ribbons
Shouldn't have to give a reason why...

It's NO SURPRISE I won't be here tomorrow
I can't believe that I stayed till today
Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow
But I know in time we'll find this was NO SURPRISE

It came out like a river once I let it out
When I thought that I wouldn't know how
Held onto it forever just pushing it down
Felt so good to let go of it now
Not wrapping this in ribbons
Shouldn't have to give a reason why

It's NO SURPRISE I won't be here tomorrow
I can't believe that I stayed till today
There's nothing here in this heart left to borrow
There's nothing here in this soul left to say
Don't be surprised when we hate this tomorrow
God know we tried to find an easier way
Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow
But I know in time we'll find this was NO SURPRISE

Our favorite place we used to go
The warm embrace that no one knows
The loving look that's left your eyes
That's why this comes as no, as NO SURPRISE

If I could see the future and how this plays out
I bet it's better than where we are now
But after going through this, it's easier to see the reason why

It's NO SURPRISE I won't be here tomorrow
I can't believe that I stayed till today
Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow
But I know in time we'll find this was NO SURPRISE

The kiss goodnight, it comes with me
Both wrong and right, our memories
The whispering before we sleep, just one more thing that you can't keep
Our favorite place we used to go
The warm embrace that no one knows
The loving look that's left your eyes
But I know in time we'll find this was NO SURPRISE

Nouvelle Vague Feat. Martin Gore - Master and Servant





Το Master and Servant των Depeche Mode διασκευάζουν ανάμεσα σε άλλα κομμάτια οι Nouvelle Vague στο νέο τους άλμπουμ 3 , που αποτελείται αποκλειστικά από διασκευές.

There's a new game
We like to play you see
A game with added reality
You treat me like a dog
Get me down on my knees

We call it master and servant
We call it master and servant

It's a lot like life
This play between the sheets
With you on top and me underneath
Forget all about equality

Let's play master and servant
Let's play master and servant

It's a lot like life
And that's what's appealing
If you despise that throwaway feeling
From disposable fun
Then this is the one

Domination's the name of the game
In bed or in life
They're both just the same
Except in one you're fulfilled
At the end of the day

Let's play master and servant
Let's play master and servant

It's a lot like life
And that's what's appealing
If you despise that throwaway feeling
From disposable fun
Then this is the one

Let's play master and servant
Let's play master and servant

Let's play master and servant
Come on, master and servan

Sky Saxon

Μερικά από τα πιο χαρακτηριστικά κομμάτια των The Seeds (αργότερα χρησιμοποίησαν το όνομα Sky Saxon and The Seeds) του συγκροτήματος του Sky Saxon, που έφυγε από τη ζωή στις 25 Ιουνίου. Οι Seeds ήταν ένα από τα κορυφαία συγκροτήματα του Garage Rock και είχαν μεγάλη επιρροή στα punk συγκροτήματα της δεκαετίας του 70. Ο Sky Saxon εξακολούθησε να παραμένει ενεργός μουσικά σε όλη τη διάρκεια της ζωής του. Είχε επισκεφθεί τη χώρα μας για συναυλίες αρκετές φορές ενώ πρόσφατα (2008) συνεργάστηκε με τους The Smashing Pumpkins στο τραγούδι Superchrist. Αναλυτική βιογραφία του μπορείτε να βρείτε στην επίσημη σελίδα του.

Sky Saxon and The Seeds - Pushin' Too Hard



You're pushin' too hard, you're pushin' on me,
You're pushin' too hard, what you want me to be,
You're pushin' too hard, about the things you said,
You're pushin' too hard every night and day,
You're pushin' too hard, you're pushin' too hard,
On me...

Well all I want is to just be free,
Live my life the way I wanna be,
All I want is to just have fun,
Live my life like it's just begun,
But you're pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard,
On me...

You better listen girl what I'm telling you,
You better listen girl, or we are through,
You better stop all your foolin' around,
Stop the runnin' all over town.
'Cause you're pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard,
On me...

Well I know there's not a fish in the sea,
I know some wouldn't stay by me,
So if you ever don't think I'm gonna try,
You better ask yourself a reason why,
'Cause you're pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard,
On me...

Pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard on me...
Pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard on me...
---O---O---O---

The Seeds - Can't Seem To Make You Mine



I can't seem to make you mine
Kissing all around all the time
Flying around like a bee
Hurtin' everything you see

I try everything I know, oh
To make you wanna love me so, oh
The only things you do, oh
Is try to put the hurt on me, oh

Can't you see what you're doin' to me
You fill my heart with misery
With every breath every step I take
I'm more in love with you

Oh I can't go on like this
A little bit of love and not one kiss
I've gotta have your love every day
One never fade and stay, oh

Can't you see what you're doin' to me
You fill my heart with misery
With every breath, every step I take
I'm more in love with you, oh

I can't seem to make you mine, oh
I can't seem to make you mine, oh
Kissing all around all the time
I can't seem to make you mine, oh
Flying around like a bee
Hurting everything you see

I can't seem to make you mine, oh
I can't seem to make you mine, oh
I can't seem to make you mine
I can't seem to make you mine.

The Seeds - The wind blows your hair



Were up the sidewalk runnin down the street
Showin our love to the world we meet
Your days comin sunshine’s begun
Big machines are starting to hum
And the wind blows your hair

Two little children come walking by
looking just like you and I
Colored by some beautiful people
Flowers growin round the church house steeple
And the wind blows your hair

I've a feelin we've been here before
Angels singing as we pass through the door
Hand in hand we walk down the aisle
See their faces their starting to smile
their starting to smile

in my eyes I’m starting to cry
this is not a dream of you and I
I’ve never been this happy before
Hand in hand we walk out the door
And the wind blows your hair

Rice is falling on us everywhere
The scent of flowers uh fill the air
Children laughing out in the street
Everyone’s happy that we meet
And the wind blows your hair
And the wind blows your hair
And the wind blows your hair… hair …hair ….hair… hair.


---O---O---O---
The Seeds - It's a Hard Life



Everybody sitting over there, near the hot lights say yeah (yeah)
It's a hard life when you work from nine to five
Can't make enough to keep your poor self alive
It's a hard life when you can't pay your rent
None of your friends will borrow you a cent
Sometimes you get so tired that you can't go on
You know a starvin' man won't run and bark
Go on try try try again
Get yourself back in shape again
Go on try try try again
Get yourself out of that fix you're in
It's a hard hard life
Hang on for your life
Hang on baby, try try try
It's a hard life when you drive you're Cadillac
Finance man is threatening to take it back It's a hard life when the man say go to jail
None of your friends will throw you bail
It's a hard hard life
Hang on for your life
Hang on try try try try......
Hang on try try try try try.........

The Seeds -Mr Farmer



See the farmer on the other side of town
He's always working hard 'til the sun goes down
He's up every morning right on five, a wanting green seeds just to come alive,
But he don't wear a no farm clothes, he's always using a rake and hoe,
But his seeds are starting to grow, like a big stalk up through the sky .

He used to live in an apartment in a big old city
With thick and priestly windows built right in it
But he decided to move to a little tiny town
He wanted to be a farmer all year round
And on a country road where you can't see a thing
He's got five acres filled with little green things, he said
He's working so hard all night and day.

Mr. Farmer let me watch your crops
Mr. Farmer let me water your crops
Mr. Farmer let me harvest your crops
I want to have a dream come true
I said a farmer, farmer, farmer
I want to be just like you

See the farmer a walking down town, always draws a crowd when he's around
He's always wearing seedy clothes, he's shows them off where ever he goes
You can spot him anywhere, got a bright pink thumb but he don't care,
I said, he looks like something from a very bad dream.

Mr. Farmer let me watch your crops
Mr. Farmer let me water your crops
Mr. Farmer let me harvest your crops
Mr. Farmer let me save your crops


I said, a farmer, farmer, farmer…
---O---O---O---

The Seeds - The March of the Flower Children



Come on along and go with me
Back into your dreams
Come on along and go with me
Travel to your time
Take you anywhere at all
Said come on back and see the Nile
Said come on along and dream with me
Back in history
Back a century
Back to dreams with me
March, march, march with me
Past the crooked forest
Through the field of flowers
Away from all the dragons
Where the sky is painted golden yellow
Come on along and go with me through the fairy castle now
Come on along and go with me
Back when you were a child
Marching through the flowers
Playing all the while
Child of yesterday
The world began its dream for man
A circus filled with love and clowns and animals
Playing round and round
Out there

---O---O---O---

The Seeds - Nobody Spoil My Fun



You know there's always someone
Who wants to spoil your fun
When your fun has just begun

So I'm going to find some little girl
And we're going to go on the run

And then I'm going to give her love
A love she really can use

'Cause I want

Where the band plays night and day

And the phone ringing out in the hall
Just tore it right off the wall

'Cause I want

And when I go and kiss your lips
Gonna send ya on your trip

Ben Moody - Wishing Well



Στις 9 Ιουνίου κυκλοφόρησε το All for This, πρώτο προσωπικό άλμπουμ του πρώην κιθαρίστα των Evanescence, Ben Moody που περιέχει ηχογραφήσεις που έγιναν μεταξύ 2005 και 2009 στις οποίες συμπεριλαμβάνεται το Wishing Well .

Sinking and suffocating
The walls are crumbling from within me

Some thing's left best unspoken
And still this truth has broken me
I can't believe it's true
No one to blame but you

Fate less and feeling lonely
No tears for this, I'll only cry
To someone else, the lie
That there's no one else

A story only time will tell
I'm trapped inside a wishing well
Living as a ghost in my own hell
I'm trapped inside a wishing well

Enforce the years of hatred
For everything I know to be
The part of me

Too many prayers unanswered
Too many questions seen as sin
Just quietly give in
Well I never will again

A story only time will tell
I'm trapped inside a wishing well
Living as a ghost in my own hell
I'm trapped inside a wishing well

Just quietly give in
Well I never will again

A story only time will tell
I'm trapped inside a wishing well
Living as a ghost in my own hell
I'm trapped inside a wishing well

A story only time will tell
I'm trapped inside a wishing well

Scorpions live 6-7-2009 + Spitfire & Βασίλης Παπακωνσταντίνου

Μια ευχάριστη έκπληξη με περίμενε κατά την είσοδό μου στο γήπεδο Καραϊσκάκη χθες το απόγευμα ακούγοντας τους ήχους των Spitfire.

Οι Spitfire που είχαν συγκλονίσει όσους είχαν βρεθεί στη συναυλία των Saxon το 1986 στη Ριζούπολη θα ήταν ίσως το μεγαλύτερο ελληνικό συγκρότημα αν η μοίρα δεν είχε σταθεί πολύ σκληρή απέναντί τους.

Δυστυχώς δεν πρόλαβα από την αρχή την εφάνισή τους αλλά παρακολουθώντας τους να εκτελούν θαυμάσια τραγούδια από το θρυλικό First Attack δεν είχα καμμιά αμφιβολία για το αν έχουν ακόμη την ικανότητα να κατακτούν το κοινό τους.

Ο Βασίλης Παπακωνσταντίνου που ακολούθησε δεν έχασε την ευκαιρία της παρουσίας 40 χιλάδων θεατών να εντυπωσιάσει τους παρευρισκόμενους.

Σε μεγάλη φόρμα και με μια πολύ καλή μπάντα να τον συνοδεύει απέδωσε εξαιρετικά παλιότερα και νεότερα κομμάτια.

Η παρουσία του Βασίλη Παπακωνσταντίνου (που ήταν αφορμή για τη νόθευση του κοινού κάτι που ήταν από τα ελάχιστα αρνητικά της χθεσινής βραδιάς ) για 1 1/2 σχεδόν ώρα ικανοποίησε απόλυτα όλους όσους ήλθαν γι αυτόν και δε δυσαρέστησε καθόλου (μάλλον το αντίθετο) τους υπόλοιπους.

Οι Scorpions που με φωτεινή εξαίρεση το Humanity Hour Ι δεν έχουν κυκλοφορήσει τα τελευταία χρόνια άλμπουμ ανάλογα του παρελθόντος τους δεν έχουν σταματήσει να ικανοποιούν 100% όσους προσέρχονται στις συναυλίες τους.

Με τη χώρα μας έχουν αναπτύξει μια αμοιβαία σχέση αγάπης που κρατά πολλά χρόνια που καταφέρνουν πάντα να το δείχνουν και αυτοί και το κοινό τους.

Η παρουσία των Uli Jon Roth, Michael Schenker και Herman Rarebell ήταν καλός οιωνός που δικαιώθηκε 100% στην πράξη. Παίζοντας κυρίως κομμάτια από τις καλύτερες περιόδους του συγκροτήματος με σύμμαχο και το φεγγάρι που περιδιάβαινε τον ουρανό πίσω τους, μας χάρισαν μια πολύ όμορφη βραδιά.

From Hallucinations?


Χωρίς εντυπωσιακά οπτικά εφφέ άφησαν όπως συνήθως τη μουσική να μιλήσει παρουσιάζοντας ένα μεγάλο μέρος από το πλούσιο ρεπερτόριό τους. Για όσους τους γνωρίζουν δεν ήταν καθόλου παράξενο το γεγονός πως ήταν τελείως διαφορετική η λίστα των κομματιών (25 κομμάτια την αποτελούσαν) με εκείνη της συναυλίας τους στη Μυτιλήνη μόλις 2 μέρες πριν.
Σε αντίθεση με άλλα συγκροτήματα κάθε συναυλία τους είναι διαφορετική εμπειρία.

Ο Klaus Meine ξεκίνησε χαλαρά όμως σιγά σιγά κατάφερε να αποδείξει για άλλη μια φορά πως διαθέτει μια από τις καλύτερες φωνές στο χώρο του hard rock.

From Hallucinations?


Highlights της βραδιάς η παρουσία των Uli Jon Roth, Michael Schenker και Herman Rarebell. Ειδικά η συμμετοχή του Michael Schenker μας έφερε χρώμα από U.F.O. (Doctor Doctor) και Led Zeppelin (Dazed and Confused και Good Times Bad Times). Στην απόδοση του Holiday βοήθησε και ο Βασίλης Παπακωνσταντίνου που κλήθηκε στη σκηνή για το σκοπό αυτό από τον Klaus Meine.

Δυστυχώς η συμμετοχή του κοινού ήταν υποτονική συγκρινόμενη με προηγούμενες συναυλίες τους και σε αυτό συνετέλεσε η παρουσία θεατών που είχαν κύριο στόχο να παρακολουθήσουν το Βασίλη Παπακωνσταντίνου

Πολύ χαρακτηριστικό ήταν το ότι η ένταση του ήχου ήταν εξ ίσου δυνατή κατά τη διάρκεια της παρουσίας των Spitfire & Βασίλη Παπακωνσταντίνου.

From Hallucinations?


Πιθανότατα να ήταν η καλύτερη συναυλία των Scorpions στην Ελλάδα και σίγουρα ήταν αυτή με το χειρότερο από πλευράς συμμετοχής στα δρώμενα κοινό.

Europe - Last Look at Eden



Το πρώτο σινγκλ από το ομότιτλο (Last Look at Eden) άλμπουμ των Europe που θα κυκλοφορήσει το Σεπτέμβριο. Το σινγκλ κυκλοφορεί από τις 8 Ιουνίου.

I'm calling out tonight.
I wanna feel his might
And I won't be quiet.

Cause I've seen the truth
Wanna fight for you.
And we just can't buy it.

This is your life.
Are you gonna stand by.
And take

One last look at Eden.
Just stop believing and walk away.
This could be our moment.
Time that we own it.
I wanna hear you say
Come with me.

Are you still not there.
The ones who really care.
Who's open minded.

This is your life.
Are you gonna stand by
And take

One last look at Eden.
Just stop believing
And walk away.

This could be our moment.
Time that we own it.
I wanna hear you say
Come with me.

[Guitar solo]

One last look at Eden.
Just stop believing
And walk away.

This could be our moment.
Time that we own it.
I wanna hear you say
To night
Come with me.

Spoon - Got Nuffin




Στις 30 Ιουνίου κυκλοφόρησε το EP Got Nuffin των Spoon που περιέχει εκτός από το ομώνυμο και τα : Tweakers και Stroke Their Brains (που θεωρώ ως το καλύτερο από τα 3)

When I'm with you, all my brothers, oh
I feel like a king
It feels like I'm dreaming

When that blood goes rattling through my veins
My ears start to ring
I notice what matters

And I got nothing to lose but darkness and shadows
Got nothing to lose but bitterness and patterns

When I can't find the way to reach you my love
I'm just not the same
Just the same

When I know you're watching out for me
I know what I'm knowing
I can see what matters

And I got nothing to lose but darkness and shadows
Got nothing to lose but emptiness and hang-ups
Oooo

Oh, when I know you're watching out for me
I look for what matters
And I notice what matters

And I got nothing to lose but darkness and shadows
Got nothing to lose but loneliness and patterns

The flowers blooming, the trains collide
Ahhh
I don't got a thing to lose
