Helloween - Dr. Stein



Εντελώς διαφορετική μορφή δίνουν στα τραγούδια που συμπεριέλαβαν στο Unarmed - Best of 25th Anniversary οι Helloween.
Το άλμπουμ κυκλοφόρησε στις 23 Δεκεμβρίου στην Ιαπωνία και στις αρχές του 2010 θα κυκλοφορήσει στον υπόλοιπο κόσμο.

Once they killed his monster
When it went into a trap
Now he's making better ones
On a higher step

On a warm Summer day
The doctor went away
To a place where he could make it real

His assistant's hips were nice
So he cloned her once or twice
Now his hips are aching, what a deal

Doctor Stein grows funny creatures
Lets them run into the night
They become great rock musicians
And their time is right
time is right

Sometimes when he's feeling bored
He's calling it a day
He's got his computers
And they do it their own way

They mix some DNA
Some skin and a certain spray
You can watch it on a laser screen

And the fellow's blue and grey
Or sometimes pink and green
Just check it out on Halloween

Doctor Stein grows funny creatures
Lets them run into the night
They become great politicians
And their time is right

One night he cloned himself
Put his brother on a shelf
But when he fell asleep that night

It crept up from behind
And thought "well, never mind"
Took a syringe and blew out his life

Doctor Stein grows funny creatures
Lets them run into the night
They become a great possession
And their time is right
Doctor Stein grows funny creatures
Lets them run into the night
They become a great oppression
And their time is right

Time is right
Time is right
Time is right

Tori Amos - What Child, Nowell



Τη δική της πινελιά βάζει στα φετινά Χριστούγεννα η Tori Amos με το δεύτερο άλμπουμ που κυκλοφόρησε φέτος μετά το Abnormally Attracted to Sin, με τίτλο Midwinter Graces.

Ευχές για καλά Χριστούγεννα σε όλους.

What child is this who, laid to rest
On Mary's lap, is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepherds watch are keeping?

This is winter's gift
This is what begins

Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
Every voice was singing
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
Born this day a new Nowell
Nowell, Nowell

What child is this who, now awakes
In every heart, each morning
From dazzling light, through silver sky
Bring peace now from creation

This is winter's gift
This is what begins

Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
Every voice was singing
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
Born this day a new
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
Every voice was singing
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
Born this day a new
Born this day a new Nowell
Nowell, Nowell,Nowell.

Brendan Benson - Don't Wanna Talk



File:Bbensoncvr.jpg

Σε ακουστική εκτέλεση το Don't Wanna Talk από το νέο δίσκο του Brendan Benson, My Old, Familiar Friend.

La, la, la, don't wanna talk about it
La, la, you go on and on and on about it

You can't let it go, you won't stay away
You don't wanna know that we're caught in the sway
So this is goodbye, and that is the door
I don't wanna try with you anymore, yeah

Don't wanna talk now, don't wanna know why
You say you're lonely, well, baby, so am I
Don't wanna hear about it, don't want you coming round
You wanna make me weak, you wanna beat me down

La, la, la, don't wanna talk about it
La, la, you go on and on and on about it

You don't seem to see, it just doesn't stick
You're proving to be a hard habit to kick
Addicted to you, and I can't get enough
So what can we do when you make it so tough

Don't wanna talk now, don't wanna know why
You say you're lonely, well, baby, so am I
Don't wanna hear about it, just wanna tune you out
You wanna make me scream, you wanna make me shout

You wanna make me shout
Make me shout...

I hear you loud and clear, but now I fear this ear I'm lending
Is falling off, and all is lost and it seems never ending

You're tightening your grip, while my mind goes slack
A crack of the whip makes me only bite back
I love you so much and I don't wanna leave
You're soft to the touch, and hard to believe

La, la, la, don't wanna talk about it
La, la, you go on and on and on about it
La, la, la, don't wanna talk about it
La, la, you go on and on and on about it

I hear you loud and clear, but now I fear this ear I'm lending
Is falling off, and all is lost and it seems never ending

3 Doors Down - Where My Christmas Lives



Στο πνεύμα των ημερών και οι 3 Doors Down με το EP Where My Christmas Lives που κυκλοφόρησε στις 8 Δεκεμβρίου.

Light me a candle, I’m comin’ home.
Then leave it by your side where I belong.
I’ve been in this cold world for so long.
So Light me a candle, I’m coming home.

I wanna feel the love that’s in the hearts;
Of all the ones that make us who we are
Thankful for the ones we have and, Lord we have to give
In this heart set loves,
that’s where my Christmas lives.

Snow on the window, sleet by the fire
Somehow these children never get tired
Missing the ones that, we wish were here
Remembering the ones who look on but we don’t shed a tear

I wanna feel the love that’s in the hearts;
Of all the ones that make us who we are
Thankful for the ones we have and, Lord we have to give
In this heart set loves,
that’s where my Christmas lives.

In these heart set loves,
that’s where my Christmas lives

Χθες 15 Δεκεμβρίου οι Seabird κυκλοφόρησαν το δεύτερο τους άλμπουμ Rocks Into Rivers.

Piano Magic - On Edge



Κάθε δυο χρόνια κυκλοφορούν νέο άλμπουμ οι
Piano Magic τελευταία. Το Ovations έρχεται να ικανοποιήσει γι άλλη μια φορά όσους τους περιμένουν χωρίς βέβαια να υπολείπονται σε ποιότητα τα EP που κυκλοφορούν ενδιάμεσα.

This life winds me up too much
I am taut as a wire
And the pressure's building up

I am up to the neck
I am cut to the quick
I am stuffed to the gills
I am sicker than sick

You think you know me
But you don't know me
You get a version
You cast aspersions

My back is up
But you'd never know
I hide it well
It doesn't show

This life winds me up too much
I am taut as a wire
And the pressure's building up

I'm a pot on the boil
I'm a trap on the spring
I am pushed to the brink
I could pull out the pin

The Dandy Warhols - Plan A

Spandau Ballet - Once More




File:Spanda Ballet - Once More.jpg
Έντεκα επανεκτελέσεις και δυο καινούρια κομμάτια περιλαμβάνονται στο Once More που επαναφέρει τους Spandau Ballet στο δισκογραφικό προσκήνιο μετά από 20 ακριβώς χρόνια. Τα νέα κομμάτια είναι τα: Once More και Love is All.

I don't want to let you down
I just want the chance to turn myself around
I keep searching for the sound

I don't want to do you wrong
I just want to take us back where we belong
We were hot and we were oh so strong

Ooh I know we will make it if we try
Reach for the stars and we can touch the sky

Darling, once more, won't you give me one more time
Say these words together
I need you more than ever
Trying once more
One more chance to make it right
Never say never, let's rise up together, take on the world

I don't want to change a thing
Who don't want to change this whisper to a scream
Same old song in a different dream

Sorry I stole the show
I can't believe I had your heart and let it go
I always loved you but I didn't know

Ooh there's nothing standing in our way
We've got the love but do we want to play

Darling, once more, won't you give me one more time
Say these words together
I need you more than ever
Trying once more
One more chance to make it right
Never say never, let's rise up together, take on the way

Martha Wainwright - Soudain une Vallee



Φόρο τιμής στην Edith Piaf αποδίδει η Martha Wainwright με το Sans Fusils, Ni Souliers, à Paris: Martha Wainwright's Piaf Record που ηχογραφήθηκε ζωντανά στις εμφανίσεις της στο Dixon Place Theatre της Νέας Υόρκης τον Ιούνιο του 2009.

Vous avez parcouru le monde.
Vous croyiez n'avoir rien trouvé
Et soudain, une vallée
S'offre à vous pour la paix profonde.

Vous aviez dépensé vos rêves
Au hasard des bonheurs volés
Et soudain, une vallée
Où la voix d'un ami s'élève.

Marchant sous un nuage,
Perdus dans votre nuit,
Tout seuls au coeur de l'orage,
Balayés par la pluie,
Vous trainiez des regrets immenses,
Des envies, des remords voilés
Et soudain, une vallée
Vous apprend que la vie commence.

Le ciel tout grand s'éclaire
D'amour et de bonté,
Soleil pour la vie entière
Et pour l'éternité.
Vous rêviez d'un bonheur immense
Sans espoir de jamais trouver
Et soudain, une vallée
Où l'espoir et l'amour commencent.

...Et soudain une vallée
Où l'espoir et l'amour sont nés...

Katatonia - The longest year



Από το νέο άλμπουμ των Katatonia , Night Is the New Day που κυκλοφόρησε τον περασμένο μήνα. Η εταιρία τους προσφέρει δωρεάν για κατέβασμα ένα κομμάτι από το άλμπουμ σε όσους γραφτούν εδώ.

In the nights of old I always wished
In the longest year that had me down
And I would freeze if you ever asked me
That was my way

Confront the guilt and try to overcome
Do not go away
I'm not there yet [x2]

I can see fire
When I fall behind (fall behind)
When I give up
My thoughts redefined
How cold is the flame
Of our uncompromising future
How cold is the sun

The city lights are fading still
The coming sky so white
And I'm the dark of this our new day
This is my way

Find the one
This weight will hold me down
How cold is the sun

Gojira - In The Forest



Στην πρόσφατη επανακυκλοφορία του άλμπουμ των Gojira, The Way of All Flesh που βγήκε για πρώτη φορά το 2000 προστέθηκαν 3 στούντιο κομμάτια (ανάμεσα στα οποία και το και το In The Forest καθώς και τρία άλλα live.

I want to live in the forest forever.
Between the roots and the branches I lay
On the moss I sit, I want to rest by the river

I want to live in the forest forever
The power of trees, I want to feel forever
Connection with life, animals, and stars

Between the roots and the branches I lay
Meditate the light wide open to the stars
Speak of the whales, deep in the oceans
Speak to the planets, deep universe.
