My dayjob forces me to research a number of music-related subjects.
For example, I learned so much about Lana Del Rey recently.
Anyway, Virgin Megastore has a huge sale and I managed to snap up two LDR-related CDs, which would have meant nothing to me had I found them a few weeks ago
Kassidy‘s first album: one of the members, Barrie- James O’Neill, is her boyfriend.
Mando Diao‘s Above and Beyond – MTV Unplugged where she’s featured on 2 songs.

Stop your crying oh little boy
’cause I know a place that you will enjoy
It’s a place that’s full of diamonds and toys
And Chet Baker’s playin’ trumpet there
So go there now
Enjoy
Go there
Don’t feel low
’cause Chet Baker’s playin’ trumpet alone
For you
Don’t you worry that girl is gone
Don’t you worry for the things that she’s done
Just relax, you still got time to go on
’cause this place is openminded to you
So go there now
Enjoy
Go there
Don’t feel low
’cause Chet Baker’s playin’ trumpet for you
Alone

It’s a pretty song but I prefer the guys’ original version which was released as a B-side

It feels much more “Chet Baker”-y

Some folks were meant to live in clover
but they are such a chosen few
and clovers being green
is something i’ve never seen
’cause i was born to be blue

When there’s a yellow moon above me
they say there’s moonbeams i shoul view
but moonbeams being gold
are something i can’t behold
’cause i was born to be blue

When i met you
the world was bright and sunny
when you left the courtain fell
i’d like to laugh
but nothing strikes me funny
now my world’s a faded pastel

I guess i’m luckier than some folks
i’ve known the thrill of loving you
but that alone is more
than i was created for
’cause i was born to be blue

Anyway, back to the future.
Among Lana Del Rey’s numerous inspirations, she cites Britney Spears.
I remember wincing when I read that.
I thought it was part of that “so bad it’s good” habit people have of name-dropping commercial music to balance out the artsy references.

But I actually discovered a track by Britney I had never heard before in Harmony Korine‘s Spring Breakers. Is this art-house?

Please, bear with the 45s of German dubbing or simply skip the intro…

Notice me
Take my hand
Why are we
Strangers when
Our love is strong
Why carry on without me?

Everytime I try to fly
I fall without my wings
I feel so small
I guess I need you baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, it’s haunting me
I guess I need you baby

I make believe
That you are here
It’s the only way
I see clear
What have I done
You seem to move on easy

And everytime I try to fly
I fall without my wings
I feel so small
I guess I need you baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, you’re haunting me
I guess I need you baby

I may have made it rain
Please forgive me
My weakness caused you pain
And this song is my sorry

Ohhhh

At night I pray
That soon your face
Will fade away

And everytime I try to fly
I fall without my wings
I feel so small
I guess I need you baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, you’re haunting me
I guess I need you baby

I think when you’re emotionally distraught, the corniest songs have the deepest meaning.
I love it. The wings lyrics remind me of Charles Baudslaire’s L’Albatros

There’s another Britney moment on it a bit earlier

My loneliness is killing me
(And I)
I must confess I still believe
When I’m not with you I lose my mind
Give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time

Deep…

Oh come on, leave Britney alone!

This is the day

We’re never as bad as we fear nor as good as we would like – some uke player’s tai chi teacher.
I found these words of wisdom online during my preparation for today: I sing on stage for the first time in less than 3 hours. Just me and my ukulele…





This is the day – your life will surely change
This is the day – when things fall into place


Listen to the lyrics. I love this song but I won’t be covering it because I can’t sing it without tearing up in a horrible bout of self-pity…
But, let’s avoid the drama: I’ll be fine. I just needed an excuse to post some day-related tracks.

But I still remember that day we met in December





Blue jeans, White shirt
Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like James Dean, for sure
You so fresh to death & sick as ca-cancer
You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop
But you fit me better than my favourite sweater, and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby!

I will love you till the end of time
I would wait a milion years
Promise you’ll remember that you’re mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
I will love you till the end of time

Big dreams, gangster
Said you had to leave to start your life over
I was like: “no please, stay here,”
We don’t need no money we can make it all work
But he headed out on Sunday, said he’d come home Monday
I stayed up waitin’, anticipatin’ and pacin’ but he was
Chasing paper
“Caught up in the game” that was the last I heard

I will love you till the end of time
I would wait a milion years

Promise you’ll remember that you’re mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
I will love you till the end of time

He went out every night
And baby that’s alright
I told you that no matter what you did i’d be by your side
Cause Ima ride or die
Whether you fail or fly
Well shit, at least you tried.
But when you walked out that door, a piece of me died
I told you I wanted more-but that not what I had in mind
I just want it like before
We were dancin all night
Then they took you away- stole you out of my life
You just need to remember….

Will love you till the end of time
I would wait a milion years
Promise you’ll remember that your mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
I will love you till the end of time



Forget the hype, the fact that she might be a well packaged product and/or a poor little rich girl… or even that it sounds like a million other things including Mazzy Star. It’s a great catchy track and I love it.

Anyway, so here we are / it’s the end of december and one of the tracks I thought of covering was Leonard Cohen’s “Famous Blue Raincoat”. I have a deep voice but he’s over a billion floors above me in the tower of song. Plus I promised myself I wouldn’t sing any sad songs. I’ll just post them.





It’s four in the morning, the end of December
I’m writing you now just to see if you’re better
New York is cold, but I like where I’m living
There’s music on Clinton Street all through the evening.

I hear that you’re building your little house deep in the desert
You’re living for nothing now, I hope you’re keeping some kind of record.

Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear
Did you ever go clear?

Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
You’d been to the station to meet every train
And you came home without Lili Marlene

And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
And when she came back she was nobody’s wife.

Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
One more thin gypsy thief
Well I see Jane’s awake —

She sends her regards.
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
What can I possibly say?
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
I’m glad you stood in my way.

If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
Your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free.

Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
I thought it was there for good so I never tried.

And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear

Sincerely, L. Cohen
