Okkervil River - Wake and Be Fine

File:I Am Very Far album cover.jpg





Μετά την βοήθεια που πρόσφεραν στον Roky Erickson για την κυκλοφορία του True Love Cast Out All Evil έφεραν στο φως το νέο τους άλμπουμ I Am Very Far που αποτελεί και το πιο πετυχημένο τους μέχρι σήμερα. Όπως δήλωσε ο Will Sheff σκοπός τους ήταν να ικανοποιήσουν τους εαυτούς τους περισσότερο από το να ικανοποιήσουν το κοινό. Τελικά τα κατάφεραν και τα δύο και όχι μόνο, γιατί πρέπει να προσθέσουμε την ένθερμη υποδοχή που είχε το άλμπουμ από τους περισσότερους κριτικούς.

Someone said to me, “I’ll come into your dream and speak it to you.” I already knew. I found her in an attic where, dramatically, she leaned in to me, and she whispered these lines: “Wake and be fine. You’ve still got time to wake and be fine.”

Embracers meet with more embracers on the street. They say, “Hold me, dear stranger. Grab on to me. We’re carrying our years around us, or they’re chasing down us. We’re all here at the same time. Can we wake and be fine? Have we still got time to wake and be fine??”

Villians on the creep and killers in the crowd are carving apart our childhood house. Lovers in their sheets, dreaming lovers sweetly turn in their sleep all under sunbeams. Everybody’s crashing, running, calling out the coming of things they kind of can see. Someone said to me, “It’s just a dream. Why don’t you wake up and you’ll see? It’s fine.”

In those miles racing over endless fields of snow (you already heard, you already know), the rescue party finally lost their hearts, and then they shattered their bones, and then they died all alone. The ships all float from beaches by themselves above the hot afternoons. (Goodbye, you balloons!) Adrift above indifferent clouds. Our hearts are crashing loudly on some rock where the gulls whine, “Wake and be fine.

Norah Jones featuring Sasha Dobson - Bull Rider


File:Norah-jones-...featuring.jpg





Μια συλλογη από συνεργασίες της Norah Jones μεταξύ 2001 και 2010 περιλαμβάνει το ...Featuring .
Το άλμπουμ που κυκλοφορεί από τα τέλη έκανε αξιόλογη επιτυχία σε πολλές χώρες μέσα στο 2011. Το κομμάτι Bull Rider με τη συμμετοχή της Sasha Dobson εμφανίζεται για πρώτη φορά στο Featuring...


Well first you gotta wanna get off bad enough to wanna get on him in the first place
And you better trust in your lady luck
Pray to God that she don't give up on you right now

Live fast die young bull rider

One hand hold is all you got it's you and the bull against the clock and a cross crowd
And once upon a spinnin' ton nothin' else you've ever done can pull this way

You're just outside the buckin' shoot
Lose a spur you lose your seat and you lose yourself
By now he's buckin' mean and dirty
Slingin' mud and cowboy boots and kickin' clowns

No fools no fun bull rider

You gotta feel the way he's movin' you gotta watch his head
And brace yourself for anything that a friend of you might dead


You know the art of hangin' loose hangin' just as tight
Well there's something like a hurricane who's dancin' with the kite

Live fast die young bull rider

Well the rodeo is more than rough
It's a fact of life it's tough to cut his fever ass

It's drinkin' beer and pullin' trailers
Tighten may on barreled razors and horse's buck

No fools no fun bull rider
Live fast die young bull rider

Edguy - Robin Hood


File:Edguy-Age of The Joker.jpg



Στις 26 Αυγούστου κυκλοφόρησαν το ένατό τους άλμπουμ Age of the Joker  οι Edguy. Το Age Of The Joker είναι ανώτερο από το προηγούμενο (Tinnitus Sanctus) και μας αποζημιώνει για την τρίχρονη απουσία τους από τη στούντιο δισκογραφία. Και στη νέα τους κυκλοφορία δεν παραλείπουν το χιουμοριστικό στοιχείο όπως φαίνεται και από το βίντεο του πρώτου σινγκλ Robin Hood και που δεν παραλείπουν να το υποδηλώσουν και στον τίτλο του άλμπουμ.

Ride across the endless woods
Shadows got away
Whispers from the fallen leaves?
Moonlight falling through the boughs
When horses [?]
The castle sounds revealing
As we shiver and we shake

Make no sound and run
Run for your lives, run from the cries
Out of the dark of the damned woods
Your day to die
Robin Hood is after you and
He's not in a joking mood, no
You ride or die
He's out for bling again

Caught and made in hundreds
They say there's merry men and wine
He dreams of what he does all day
What a funny life
Never shaves to show his face
Legend has been told
He does all day in shooting, ducking
Running from the law

Liberty, equality, a little love
Women [?] for every outlaw
Go in from jealousy, a pinch of mead for fate
The king for everyone
Who wants to be the same

Make no sound and run
Run for your lives, run from the cries
Out of the dark of the damned woods
Your day to die
Robin Hood is after you and
He's not in a joking mood, no
You ride or die
He's out for bling again

[Spoken:]
Robin Hood, king of thieves
Hero of outlaws, son of a father
Bewareth! He may be after you!
Bewareth!
Ha ha ha ha ha!

The legends ... down the rail/road
While the truth has ... the boots
Its boots on you

Take what you desire
Make no mistake
Fire and dark
Fire and dark
Let menaces prevail

Stab in the back
Stab in the back
You will never see his face
Fire and dark one more stab in the back
What a day to kill his grace

The legends ... down the road/rail
(blindly honest me?)
While the truth has its boots
Its boots on you

Make no sound and run
Run for your lives, run from the cries
Out of the dark of the damned woods
Your day to die
Robin Hood is after you and
He's not in a joking mood, no
You ride or die
He's out for bling again

Your day to die
And Robin Hood can't find no one
Who would caress his Little John
You ride or die
He's out for bling again
