Need some soothing music? Working hard and want something non-obtrusive but not electronic?
Try Daniel Bachman‘s River
Yes it’s folky with just one guitar… Don’t say I didn’t warn you

I don’t know why, it reminds me of the background music in Josh T. Pearson‘s Last Of The Country Gentlemen
Of course his voice adds a lot.

Perhaps you know his band Lift to Experience? Their 2001 album The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads was also great!

Reminds me of late-period (posthumously released) Jeff Buckley material

Satisfaction

with one comment




‘…he can’t be a man ’cause he doesn’t smoke
the same cigarrettes as me.






When I’m drivin’ in my car
and a man comes on the radio
he’s tellin’ me more and more
about some useless information
supposed to fire my imagination.
I can’t get no, oh no no no.
Hey hey hey, that’s what I say.

I can’t get no satisfaction,
I can’t get no satisfaction.
‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try.
I can’t get no, I can’t get no.

When I’m watchin’ my TV
and a man comes on to tell me
how white my shirts can be.
Well he can’t be a man ’cause he doesn’t smoke
the same cigarrettes as me.
I can’t get no, oh no no no.
Hey hey hey, that’s what I say.

I can’t get no satisfaction,
I can’t get no girly action.
‘Cause I try and I try and I try and I try.
I can’t get no, I can’t get no.

When I’m ridin’ round the world
and I’m doin’ this and I’m signing that
and I’m tryin’ to make some girl
who tells me baby better come back later next week
’cause you see I’m on losing streak.
I can’t get no, oh no no no.
Hey hey hey, that’s what I say.

I can’t get no, I can’t get no,
I can’t get no satisfaction,
no satisfaction, no satisfaction, no satisfaction.


Rolling Stones

Devo

Cat Power





How many times have you heard someone say,
“If I had money, I would do things my way.”
But little they know, that it’s so hard to find
one rich man in ten, with a satisfied mind.

Money can’t buy back all your youth when you’re old,
a friend when you’re lonely, or peace to your soul.
The wealthiest person, is a pauper at times
compared to the man with a satisfied mind.

When my life is over and my time has run out,
my friends and my loved ones, I will leave there’s no doubt.
But one thing’s for certain, when it comes my time,
I’ll leave this old world with a satisfied mind.
But one thing’s for certain, when it comes my time,
I’ll leave this old world with a satisfied mind mind mind, mind mind,
satisfied mind.



Johnny Cash

Jeff Buckley


And, no this picture isn’t two girls one cup, it’s Gossip Girl… Why did I stop watching it? Even Terry Richardson found time to take pictures… and if you know what’s good for you will not click on the first link at the top of this google search. NSFW and definitely not safe for you!!! Why don’t you read about it first and maybe have a look at reactions before you venture there…

Don’t do it.
trust me
it’s not worth it…

Morning

leave a comment »




As the dawn began to break – I had to surrender
The universe will have its way – too powerful to master



This used to be the view from my balcony at the wee hours of the morning.
The convent has just been torn down and the building I live in is surrounded on all sides by construction sites!
I used to love hearing the birds waking up and chirping away. Even though I couldn’t help but hear This town is coming like a ghost town in my head every time I was lucky enough to be there at this time of day.
Anyway, today I’m feeling kinda “Specials”





Two o’clock has come again
It’s time to leave this paradise
Hope the chip shop isn’t closed
Cos’ their pies are really nice
I’ll eat in the taxi queue
Standing in someone else’s spew
Wish I had lipstick on my shirt
Instead of piss stains on my shoes

I go out on Friday night and I come home on Saturday morning

Here’s the original and the Nouvelle Vague cover, if you’re into that kind of thing.


I remember waking up on sunday mornings when I was around 10 years old. My mother used to blast us with either Mozart’s requiem or Pink Floyd’s Wish You Were Here album. The volume was so overwhelming I actually thought the music came from outside! I’d open the window and it would roll into my room. This morning I did the same with this track, on repeat for the last few hours.





Sunlight on your eyelids
You were sleeping
Sunlight on your back
You were dreaming


You probably know Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend or from Discovery his side project with Wes Miles of Ra Ra Riot. You can download this track on soundcloud. And if you like it, why don’t you check out his latest release.



This eastern-sounding promise reminded me instantly of Jeff Buckley’s Morning Theft. Just sticking to the theme and triggering an unstoppable stream of tears “consciousness(?)”





Time takes care of the wound, so I can believe.
You had so much to give, you thought I couldn’t see.
Gifts for boot heels to crush, promises deceived
I had to send it away to bring us back again.
Your eyes and body brighten silent waters, deep.
Your precious daughter in the other room, asleep.
A kiss “Goodnight” from every stranger that I meet.
I had to send it away to bring us back again.
Morning theft, and pretender left, ungrateful.
True Self is what brought you here, to me.
A place where we can accept this love.
Friendship battered down by useless history,
Unexamined failure.
What am I still to you?
Some thief who stole from you?
Or some fool drama queen whose chances were few?
Love brings us to who we need,
a place where we can save
A heart that beats as both siphon and reservoir.
You’re a woman, I’m a calf.
You’re a window, I’m a knife.
We come together making chance into starlight.
Meet me tomorrow night, or any day you want.
I have no right to wonder just how, or when.
And though the meaning fits, there’s no relief in this.
I miss my beautiful friend.
I had to send it away to bring her back again.



If you feel like pulling your heart out and crying all day download it here or check out this live version.


According to wikibible The Morning of the Magicians has been credited with playing a significant role in bringing mysticism and conspiracy theories (such as secret societies and ancient prophesies) into popular culture. It spurred a revival of interest in the occult during the 1960s and 70s, and was a forerunner to the popularization of New Age ideas. A kind of proto-Zeitgeist.
I’m not sure it inspired this track but I love it. Same morning-themed heartbreak.





In the morning I’d awake and I couldn’t remember
What is love and what is hate? – the calculations error
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-what is love and what is hate?
And why does it matter? – Is to love just a waste?
How can it matter?



However, I’m sure this book was behind the name of a classical music radioshow in the nineties: “Le matin des musiciens”. Merci monsieur Musique.
Eco-Beirut was the first radio station I worked at. Every day started with Lully’s Marche pour la cérémonie des Turcs. A track you probably know from Tous Les Matins du Monde





It was so reassuring to hear it every morning.
It reminds me of that Robert Frost quote: “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life — It goes on”.

Kiss

leave a comment »




“Kiss emmak ya Tom Waits!”
His new album is fantastic: the guy’s till at the top of his game.
Listen to this track, I’ve got it on repeat non-stop since yesterday.


Tom Waits – Kiss Me



You look at me
I look at you
There’s only one thing
I want you to do

Kiss me
I want you to kiss me like a stranger once again



So where do we go from here? Forget about The Shangri-Las, Betty Everett, The Crystals or even Prince.
I’m going for the jugular with this Jeff Buckley track





Kiss me, please kiss me,
But kiss me out of desire, babe, and not consolation.
Oh, you know it makes me so angry ’cause I know that in time
I’ll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye.



Jeff Buckley was a huge Nina Simone fan, covering “Be Your Husband” or “Lilac wine”. So it seemed just obvious to continue with This Year’s Kisses





This year’s crop of kisses
Don’t seem as sweet to me
This year’s crop just misses
What kisses used to be
This year’s new romance
Doesn’t seem to have a chance
Even helped by Mr. Moon above
This year’s crop of kisses is not for me
For I’m still wearin’ last year’s love.






The Pallers – The Kiss


If it wasn’t a kiss
Then I don’t know what it was


And here’s the cherry on top / one of my favorites. I love violent kiss-related songs: He hit me (and it felt like a kiss), Kiss with a fist. The whole betrayal with a kiss aspect is part of the greatest story ever told!
But this one‘s just so “uplifting”!





I need someone, a person to talk to
Someone who’d care to love
Could it be you?
Could it be you?

The situation gets rough, and I start to panic
It’s not enough, it’s just a habit
And, kid, you’re sick
Well, darling, this is it

Well, you can all just kiss off into the air
Behind my back, I can see them stare
They’ll hurt me bad, but I won’t mind
They’ll hurt me bad, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
Yeah, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
They do it all the time, do it all the time

I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record!
Oh, yeah? Well, don’t get so distressed
Did I happen to mention that I’m impressed?

I take one, one, one ’cause you left me
And two, two, two for my family
And three, three, three for my heartache
And four, four, four for my headaches
And five, five, five for my lonely
And six, six, six for my sorrow
And seven, seven for no tomorrow
And eight, eight, I forget what eight was for
But nine, nine, nine for the lost gods
Ten, ten, ten, ten for everything, everything, everything

Well, you can all just kiss off into the air
Behind my back, I can see them stare
They’ll hurt me bad, but I won’t mind
They’ll hurt me bad, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
Yeah, they do it all the time (yeah, yeah!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
They do it all the time (do it all the time!)
They do it all the time time time time time t-time time tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-tu-time tu-time time (do it all the time!)
