buY their LIVE DVD - OUT OF THE BLUE - LIVE AT WEMBLEY


It *is* very 70s (which isnt bad by itself - my music knowledge ends about ´84  ???), it is a classic, granted, and it is even great to relive memeories by listening once every 5 yrs to it (from my POV). It is too Pop for my taste, lyrics are for the poetically inhibitated IMHO...  ;D

But guys, you really got me going, I have searched for stuff in my vast (vinyl) collection that I haven´t been listening to for years... I just *love* Music Threads! ;D

My ´70s stuff (as I am all for the lyrics all the time, and for a good solo, or a good arrangement, or all of those; additionally they had to be worth to save money to see them live in concert...) has such stuff as (they all fit the mentioned categories):

1. Uriah Heep, Salisbury (due to the 10 min limit this has been split in two parts on youtube, A CRIME !!!  :o), a badass solo in part 2! Lyrics: http://mog.com/music/Uriah_Heep/Salisbury/Salisbury/lyrics (http://mog.com/music/Uriah_Heep/Salisbury/Salisbury/lyrics)

Somewhere in your eye, that very special glow.

2. E.L.P, Knife Edge, live ´72; Ah! What a mix in concert (getting better later in the century still)! The maniac E ripping ever so creative stuff on his Moog, the immersive voice of L and the ever so precise P using his drums as a full fledged melody instrument: I don´t exactly recall what drugs I was on in ´72, but the Lyrics had me mesmerized and still have meaning today http://www.lyricstime.com/emerson-lake-palmer-knife-edge-lyrics.html (http://www.lyricstime.com/emerson-lake-palmer-knife-edge-lyrics.html):

Incredible but true: I have tried now for 1.5(!) hours to find a vid on the net that plays the original version of this song, literally impossible... All out there is live and interesting, but lacks the fine arrangements and the sound quality of the studio version and is... crap.  >:(

In the end (and its the only one) I found a link to a audio only version of that real ´70 beauty (again for me the lyrics held meaning then, and do today still): http://www.metrolyrics.com/ive-seen-all-good-people-lyrics-yes.html (http://www.metrolyrics.com/ive-seen-all-good-people-lyrics-yes.html)

Guys, I have a 64-bit processor and as far as I can find out I can't run Adobe Flash to see all of your fine links [send a PM is you have a way of working around this, please!]

that said, I don't see any mention of Can,Television, Devo, Zepplin nor Eno in the discussion of '70s music. this distresses me  ;)

Koen, when I was in Antwerp in '94, a group named Deus had just come out with an album I liked; whatever happened to them?

thanks for the spelling correction [dEus], Koen, and thanks for the memories.  I was working in a hostel/hotel in Antwerp when the 'Suds & Soda' album came out; the guy I worked with had entered a radio station contest and played 'Killing in the Name of' by Rage Against the Machine with an accordian and saxophone; he and his friend won and appeared on the radio.  I think they met and went out with dEus.

also, thanks to Rattler(?) I've solved the Flash problem [load IE from the icon at the bottom of the page and it uses 32-bit mode which Adobe Flash can handle] and now see all of your nice videos.  Thanks so much for your help!  I've just watched Einsteurzende Neubaten live at the Palast der Republik movie to celebrate.  their music isn't for everyone [banging empty olive oil tins on pieces of metal] but it's worth a chance, if you're open to industrial music.

Seems we were able to solve the problem, here for others who have the same thingy not working:

In Vista, IE7 32 Bit is installed by default. Check the Program Files (x86) folder for Internet Explorer. It is there and you run the executable file to have a 32 Bit browser.

Some ppl reported that they could not get the IE7 to shortcut to 32-bit, her the solution if that is your case:

Quote
I was able to fix my issue by getting lucky. For whatever reason my IE7 was defaulting to the 64 bit version no matter how I accessed it, even when clikcing on the executable from the program files x86 folder (which was supposd to shortcut to the 32 bit version).

By accident I figured out that by clicking the tiny IE icon in the bottom left (next to the start icon) I was now opening up the 32 bit version of IE. Very strange, but I am happy for the time being.


If you forget what browser you're in you can always check under Help->About.and if it doesn't specifically say "64-bit Edition" then it's not.

Last, Flash doesn't necessarily work on 32 bit editions either unless UAC is turned off.

Another solution would be to run Linux, there Adobe has released the 64-bit flash player already last month.

In Alans case the click on the tiny icon at the bottom next to the start icon worked to install IE in 32-bit mode, so: SOLVED

Now he can enjoy this thread...  :D

Kind regards,

and to follow up:  we tried to dl Fire Fox in 32-bit mode (something which is supposedly used to 'fix' this Vista 64-bit processor problem), open IE in 32-bit mode via fiddling with the files, we dl'd Silver-something-or-other via Netflix (the US site for watching movies on-line) which some said worked and nothing worked until I simply opened IE with the icon on the bottom tool-bar.  the simplest solution to the most frustrating computer problem in some time.

thanks for the further links to vids, Koen.

Koen,
  Very interesting set of music.  Rather an edgy Depeche Mode, those last two, Front 242 and Neon Judgment.  Heavy techo, which is pretty cool. 

  I kind of like Rammstein from time to time, and some Nine Inch Nails are always nice.

you don't have to say you're sorry
to look on further down the line
into the sun
too close at heaven
love is fine

two worlds apart and two together
into that good night kiss away
one takes the hard
one the other
kiss a way

are you living for love?
are you living for love?
when the road gets too tough
is your love strong enough?

(are you living?)

do you feel your head is full of thunder?
questions never end?
empty nights alone? no wonder
it all comes back again

are you living for love?
are you living for love?
I've been under the gun
I've lost and I've ...

(one, two, three, four ...)
forget the many steps to heaven
it never happened and it ain't so hard
happiness is a loaded weapon and a
short cut is better by far
explosive bolts, ten thousand volts
at a million miles an hour
abrasive wheels and molten metals
it's a semi-automatic, get in the car
corrosive heart and frozen heat
we're worlds apart where we could meet
where the street fold round and the motors start
and the idiot wields the power
where the chosen hold the highest card
on the field of honour where the ground is hard
so the highest hand is joking wild
and the house soon fold and no-one stand
I put my finger on and dialled
the tower, the moon, the gun, and
nine nine nine, singer down
cloudburst and all around
the first are last, the blessed get wired
the best is yet to come
I put my finger on and fired
heat-seeking, out of the sun
you can set the controls for the heart or the knees
and the meek'll inherit what they damn well please
get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger
everything under the gun.

To expand on my music tastes:

Another thing that gets me going about music is when it is dancable...

Of cause, this is not the version that does it (the one with "War" and joining "I have a dream"... was still visible on New Years Eve, now it is gone from the net... >:( but it persists in my vinyl collection), but the version with The Animals gives you the idea of the possibilities..

Latters a bit later into the decade...

(above: Clapton, Allman Bros, Temptations, Etta James, Clapton, EWF, Whispers)

And what would we close the party with in those days? When *the* decisive moment came, when you got your last chance to get closer?  :D (unbelievable, actually, as we all looked like the guys in the public in the first vid -check the guy in the grey jacket and you get the idea -, but it worked, most of the times...  :o )  Always the same two songs, for 10 yrs...  ;D

Had some friends (all either ex or current) here tonight for dinner: 1 ARG, 2 ESP, 1 (wife of) GDR, 1 BRD, 1 UK and showed them the site and, of cause, this thread.

We were all enjoying it a lot, listened to almost all of the tunes, then the younger guys (youngest some 27) came up with some more modern tunes, here is what they listen to in the forces for PT today (only remember this one, but there were several more of the same style that they call "SoftPunk" in Spanish), I like it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tr5OyWtBB3M (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tr5OyWtBB3M)

Pascú from Argentina (SGM) is probably one of the best non-english speakers that I have ever seen cover an English speaking singer in a tune (he did this and some others more to perfection, with English accent though he doesnt speak nor understand it), he will be a week longer around on holiday, so we decided to collectively hit one of the major Karaoke grounds here this week, ahould vids come up I will post them for sure, the bloke is a bomb.

Don't know if you know the whole pun of 'Go Franco Un-American' from that song.  Franco-American is a popular brand for canned food; I think of it as kid's food and used to love it as a kid.

Post by: Rattler on 4 February 2009, 22:59:24
Interesting.

After a short confy with the blokes today we agreed we never got that one, for Spanish (and Spanish Speakers) Franco stands for something else and was understood by everybody present as such in the song, w/o a clue to the pun you mentioned: USA (EE.UU in spanish) had always gone great length (in the cold war probably thought he was a "natural" ally) to support El Generalissimo... They celebrated the 25 yrs of facisim here as if it had been their own triumph (at least so according to NO-DO, the propaganda news during the dictatorship).

Interestingly, up to today, the Spanish "Infanteria Naval" still has the same organization, equipment and even uniforms as the US Marines (and different from all the other forces). Traditions die hard...  ;D

NOTE: These are all excerpts of one doumentary from ´75 about Franco, you will note the change in tone when the original ´60s voices and comments are displayed.

NO-DO: "USA hails 25 yrs of Peace In Spain" (and propagates Spanish Brandy, R.)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHPu8U0JeCg (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHPu8U0JeCg)

NO-DO: "The 6th Fleet is the garant of Spanish Freedom versus the Communist Threat", a piece grabbed along with the "5 years prolongation of the treaties for mutual defense of US and Spain". Check how at 1:35 the US Marine invites the "young future soldiers full of inspriation" to the Forrestal... Propaganda at its best...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_R2r9JCmF8 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_R2r9JCmF8)

NO-DO: "Spain shoulder to shoulder supports the US war effort in Vietnam". Interesting the thingy the US embassador states when debarking in Madrid Barajas in this one of 1964 (1:12 ff): "With an ally like Spain, a nation deeply devoted to the tradition of holding up the humantiarian rights, the Free World has not to fear any upsets. Spain, I think, can be very helpful to the Viatnamese People in the fields of healt and  technology..."

In another aspect, check out the NO-Do hailed "collection of toys presents to the children of Kennedy" collected by all children in Spain... (1:33 ff)

The big prob nowadays: YouTube is following a harsh regiment to (alleged or persumed) CR violations.

HINT: Check the date the vid was posted, and the date the tune dates to. If first is >6 month and latter >25 years you stand a good chance that people get a chance to see it...

Post by: Rattler on 5 February 2009, 22:34:31
Okies, now we have been listening to so much great music, interestingly mostly from the past, what is the difference to todays (mainly casted group´s) sounds?

Ok, I will explain or at least shade some light on it:

(ATTENTION; DISCLAIMER: BEFORE YOU PROECEED make sure you are in a friendly and caring environment, safely sitting on a device that can bear your weight plus the forces resulting from horror induced convulsions and have a rescue squad close to carry you out of the room if you should not be able to reach the volume button anymore: CAUTION: AUDIO TORTURE AHEAD!!! (not all, though, if you survive the first part, it gradually will be getting better, just hold on...  ;D). Scroll down at your own risk to proceed! I cannot and will not be held responsible to any damage the stuff you will see/hear after scrolling down does to any part of your body/mind/soul, and I will not respond to any demands, if you go on it is definitely at your own risk! I have warned you!)
























Pooooohpfst, this said, here goes and the calvary starts:

So, you like Britney Spears? Sure got some great songs, but: IT IS ALL STUDIO MAGIC, here what she sounds like if you only copy *her*mike:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhR1fvHidAw (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhR1fvHidAw)

Sorry, I forgot , this was Britney after all, we had it clear she was all a fake all along, right (remember her being a virgin before marriage!!!?)?

But, luckily, there are true singers, like, e.g. Enrique Iglesias!  ;D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifrCFD3QNZc (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifrCFD3QNZc)

Conceded, this is YouTube, might have been a fake, and we dont have to worry... but...? The doubts are awakened... And there is more... (check for yourself, cannot stand it anymore).

OTOH, there once was one guy that also could not sing (and he could not!!! Yours truly is better at any Karaoke!  :P), but not only was he open about it, he also made this a style, filled it with emotion and branded a whole generation, probably - and I am sure that was not his plan - relaying the message to the producer sharks that *anything goes* if marketed allright ad so starting the decay of music (hey!, it is now, this week, that - 50 yrs ago - "..the music died!"). But, then again, these were the late ´70s...):

P.S.: Wondering about the "50 yrs ago the music died"? Actually, it was FEB 3, 1959, near Clear Lake, Iowa, when the start ended:

I love Sting/Police, they are my time. I might be wrong, but he comes over as one of the ppl that havent lost sense to success...

Here, one of the deepest impressions he made on me and others, the performance on S11 night - which for us was early morning S12, but who slept that night?

The lyrics (and why this performance made sense IMHO) http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/sting/fragile.html (http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/sting/fragile.html)

Quote
...
Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime's argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

The Chieftains - "Down the Old Plank Road"



For me, The Chieftains inseparably go with the voice of Sinead O'Connor, like in such pieces, a true soldier´ssong methinks:

Quote
-snip-...The bravest fell, and the requiem bell
Rang mournfully and clear
For those who died that Easter-tide
In the springing of the year.
While the world did gaze with deep amaze
At those fearless men but few
Who bore the fight that freedom's light
Might shine through the foggy dew....



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13MQFCfCYdQ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13MQFCfCYdQ)

And now, to make you all loathe with envy, tonight will be to "Sa Taronja" (http://www.sataronja.net/ (http://www.sataronja.net/)), to a concert of "Orishirishi", a Mallorquin studio musician formation from our (250 people) village that plays along the same lines: Kinda soft Celtic, Reggae, Funk, Afro, Soul y Rock; furthermore, tonight Arthur Vaughn Richards "Island Monkey" will play his own songs alongside, this should rip their schedule a bit... :D (the vid has been shot in "Sa Taronja" some one year ago, at a concert - the friends bit at a house 2 km to my south - , so you can see what I am facing... )

The bass (and boss), Jan Kobrzinowski (farthest right in the pic, the guy with the orange baseball cap in the vid), is a fellow German and, as well as his ex Anke (the girl on the left of the pic and percussions in the vid) is a good friend of mine and will have to face his 50th birthday tonight at 2400Local  ;D...

I expect some kind of party with a lot of on-stage jamming will result as there will be present the cream of our village musicians (we are sort of a refuge for great musicians once they retire), including my direct neighbour Molly Duncan, tenor sax from "Dire Straits", "Average White Band" and "Eurythmics"... http://www.mollyduncan.com/molly_duncan.htm (http://www.mollyduncan.com/molly_duncan.htm) ...

Just a quick update (some good protrait photos tomorrow):

0345, just got home (dont ask me how, those 7 km sepentines can be hell if you are ... affected...) w/o any serious injuries.

Turns out I got it all wrong, have to go back tomorrow, the virthday is Monday (so celebs at 2400 sunday night).

Re: The concert, great night, dancing myself out (one was the song of the vid). Molly could not turn up as he is with a flu, but Robert (the sax guy in the vid) took over. Drums were run by Patrick Shanahan, x drummer of "New Riders of the Purple Sage", he lives next door (= 4 km, here at the Med a** of the world).

Geoff Evans http://www.geoffevansmusic.net/about_the_artist.html (http://www.geoffevansmusic.net/about_the_artist.html) was there and will perform tomorow, also Fernando Rubin (http://fernandorubinguitars.com/guitars.html, (http://fernandorubinguitars.com/guitars.html,) photos yours truly) so expect some good material (I will be borrowing a vid camera from our local police officer to document, no guarantees on the qaulity).

Rattler,
  What an intriguing set of artists doing "My Funny Valentine."  Most excellent.  The best one has to be Frank.  Of course.  It was fun to compare the styles.

  Naturally, King Crimson, and the absolute classic "In the Court of the Crimson King" would need to be included.  They are right up there with Argent and their amazing "Hold Your Head High," one of my absolute favorites.

Koen, "Never Back Down" is a really good song, but the video is vicious.  Ouch.

Thx for the information, but: My guess: No way people as lazy as folks that go for a forum instead of a blog will start and go looking up titles/bands/albums on the net to see/hear them, I would suggest if you really want to have them looked at to provide the link additionally... Also, it is more fun as it makes sure ppl see what *you* were wanting to transmit instead of the band´s promotor...

Tech issues, but to keep in mind...

W/o my techadmin hat on: I cannot listen to >>Doogie Mclean- "Inside the Thunder" , so indeed it is not of much help.

OTOH, Spanish League half time: Barca vs. Espanyol 0:0, Madrid will make the league interesting again (6:1 currently vs. Betis), Henry supplemented for Busquets, and Barca has a  hard time fighting...

(EDIT: Min 49: Espanyol scored, atm only 7 pts advantage in the league to Madrid, but 40 min to go...

EDIT ... and it does not help much: Min 54 Barca 0, Espanyol 2 (!), you can follw live  - after registering -  here: http://www.live-player.com/fp/018/?lg=es&grpid=579&tag_id=378&gclid=COCgpZq37pgCFUYJ3wodqlz91Q (http://www.live-player.com/fp/018/?lg=es&grpid=579&tag_id=378&gclid=COCgpZq37pgCFUYJ3wodqlz91Q), 8 yellows and one red - Barca playing with 10 - stuff for polemics in tomorrows sport news papers.... personally, I think Barca can still turn it, 70% posession and all the arty out...)

EDIT Foul on Etoo, anther yellow, this time for Espanyol, free kick... and while I am writing! Gooooool Baaaaarcaaaaa! Barca 1, Espanyol 2... 25 minutes to go...

EDIT Next yellow, Barca again, that is now more than 10 cards in one game (!), Barca now with 9, Espanyol with 10 (1 red, 2 double yellows), and it does not look like Barca would be able to turn tables now... A pity, but somehow previsible: Best run of a Spanish team ever (60 points currently of 65 possible - 68 possibly with todays game if it ends like this and 25 matches unbeaten - would be the first to break the rule), this is bad, bad news for a Barca fan and experienced soccer trainer: Barca shows fright (only soccer fans will understand what I am taliking about, slight errors summing up) Champions Wednesday? Cup Friday? And Madrid at the same time winning 6:1? This league has not ended, and I begin to doubt that Barca will make the triple or quadruple even if they play the best soccer I have seen in my life ever,... fright killls... Crisis if you just lose *one* match, etc. ... Really hope for soccer they can at least in the next 15 mins (that is what is left while I am writing) reach a draw...

EDIT 4 min + extra to go, Barca got the fighting spirit back, 5 chances in the last 5 min, Madrid finished... You can *see* that Iniesta is lacking, seems strange with such a great team, but it notes...

EDIT 1:15 left, another yellow for Espanyol, but nothing comes from it...

EDIT "La macina es humana" ("The machine" is human), after all: Barca 1, Espanyol 2, and ony 7 points to Madrid with 14 matches to go...

Glad to see those dionsaurs are still around... and having fun! Sure made my days in the early 70s! My favorite at that time (song only starts at 1:40 but the whole vid is worth looking at - compare the faces, what time does to us all! -, I bet FacMan will have a sudden backflash... ;D):

And while I am at it:

My current favorite Spanish (funky) Rock Band, Santi Latorre. No lyrics on the web and I am looking still for my top song from them "Va" (or "No va"?), if you know it or come across it please let me know...

4 vids, all great lyrics (though you will need to understand Spanish to get the beauty), one badass guitar solo in each that combines well with the funky rhythm guitar, and nicely arranged:

First one "Y que" ("And so what?"): "Si tu estas solo delante del peligro y el peligro te lo dictan, y que? Tu decides siempre, amigo, tu futuro y tu camino! ("If you are alone in front of peril, and they dictate which peril, so what? You decide *always*, my friend, your future and your ways!")

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBu_MNpZWFY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBu_MNpZWFY)

2nd one about what we all suffer when facing beaurocracy: "No te vas a escapar" ("You won´t escape it"), the pics explain it sufficiently, no lyrics needed: "El siguiente!" ("Next one!") & "Relax a little, please..."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hmc-gASDWk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hmc-gASDWk)

3rd one sees Santi flirting in a bar with the waitress who is obvilusly from the south, Andalusia (some fine flamenco elements integrated with the funky rock/rap), as she rebuffs him with the classic southern "Anda ya!" ("Stuff it"):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7CF2Z6WhP8 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7CF2Z6WhP8)

The last one is universal, especially now in time of crisis: "Dame pasta!" ("give me some dough!"), the grooviest and rappiest piece:

Just checked this entry only today looking for inspiration, and I like their fast ones (today I am in the mood ??? : A friend died yesterday at 1320J at 49 and I *hate* to go to the funeral Monday but I know she would love this as the music at her coffin when everybody takes a sip of the Dead Mans (Girls) Whiskey...)

The ship is sinking, the ship is sinking, the ship is sinking
There's a leak, there's a leak In the boiler room,
The poor, the lame, the blind
Who are the ones left in charge?
Killers, thieves and Lawyers
God's away, God's away, God's away
On Business. Business.
God's away, God's away, God's away
On Business. Business.

Digging up the dead with A shovel and a pick It's a job, it's a job
Bloody moon rising with A plague and a flood Join the mob, join the mob
It's all over, it's all over, it's all over
There's a leak, there's a leak, In the boiler room
The poor, the lame, the blind
Who are the ones that we kept in charge?
Killers, thieves, and lawyers
God's away, God's away, God's away

God's away, God's away,
On Business. Business.

Goddamn ther's always such A big temptation To be good, To be good
Tere's always free cheddar in A mousetrap, baby It's a deal, it's a deal
God's away, God's away, God's away
On Business. Business.

this one is for you and your friend, may she find peace

Sisters of Mercy - Marian

In a sea of faces, in a sea of doubt
In this cruel place your voice above the maelstrom
In the wake of this ship of fools I'm falling further down
If you can see me, Marian, reach out and take me home.....

CHORUS
I hear you calling Marian
Across the water, across the wave
I hear you calling Marian
Can you hear me calling you to
Save me, save me, save me from the
Grave...
Marian

Marian, there's a weight above me
And the pressure is all too strong
To breathe deep
Breathe long and hard
To take the water down and go to sleep
To sink still further
Beneath the fatal wave
Marian I think I'm drowning
This sea is killing me

CHORUS

Was ich kann und was ich könnte
(What I can do and what I could do)
Weiss ich gar nicht mehr
(I just don't know anymore)
Gib mir wieder etwas schönes
(Give me something beautiful again)
Zieh mich aus dem Meer
(Drag me from the sea)
Ich höre dich rufen, Marian
(I hear you calling Marian)
Kannst du mich schreien hören
(Can you hear me screaming?)
Ich bin hier allein
(I am here alone)
Ich höre dich rufen, Marian
(I hear you calling Marian)
Ohne deine hilfe verliere ich mich in diesem Ort
(Without your help I am lost in this place)

CHORUS
[repeat Marian til end]

Because it was the unofficial anthem for most of the Viet Vets I served with, and many of those I have met since. I believe it was played multiple times a day on AFVN . If in a rear area, one could hear the GIs singing along, from the different bivouacs across the base.

Just listening live to the Spanish National Music Awards Ceremony (XIII Edicion Premios de la Musica, big thing here like the grammies or oscars) which hits a lot of angles we have covered in this thread already.

I got intrigued by what of one of the laudators said about a well known "nationalist" musician (and NOTE that "nation" in Spanish has two angles and the word itself will only be used in a political sense, else it is either: "Tierra" = "Earth", as a symbol of where you got raised and therefore belong to - like motherland in Russian-, and "Pueblo" = "People", the society you belong to as you  have "drank" its culture (referring to the mothers milk), like "Volk" in German, both much stronger in meaning than the English translation can transport):

The laudator said: "Who loves his "Earth" will always love the "Earth " of others. Who loves his people, will intringensintly love *all* other peoples. And who devotes his effort to producing music for both his "Earth" and his  "People" will do so knowing that the future of both depends always on shared memories with the others..."

Well spoken, and I will feature some of the "typical" Spanish stuff over the next days (already did a bit with Santi Latorre at: http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/index.php?topic=715.msg3027#msg3027 (http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/index.php?topic=715.msg3027#msg3027)) including the regional aspects like the winners in Catalan, Basque, Gallego etc.

Watch out: INCOMING!  ;D

You can help me already by starting searching for "Russian Red Y (=and) Depedro"! Never had heard of them but (award for the best "English" song by a Spanish Band) they are something!

Koen,

I tried *really* to be serious about that, and turned the volume up...

But...

No limb moved, thats sth for being on pills? Too straight "Square" like in square w/o hip, no groove at all, could not dance to it with a GinTonix in my hand drifting along the floor border flirting with the gals around... ?! ???

I love shaking my limbs (no standing aside looking at others dancing), but my thingy goes along the following posted below (want to tell me *your* limbs, pills or not, do not move? And, on purpose, I am not going to post classic dance tunes, of which there are many which we probalby wont discuss...)

But you need to be able to have a cigarette in one hand and the GinTonix in the other if it is for danicng?!...

Rattler (as those vids are low volume, really pump it up, to get the limb shaking effect! No disrespect meant, but *here goes* some groove! Some of the stuff I as amateur DJ put on at parties to get the dance floor going, works with all ages...)

80s? Jazzmatazz:

Guru - No Time To Play (JazzMatazz Vol.1) + Lyrics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgxELG52aFk#)

90s? Stereo MCs...:

2000?:

actually, could not find the right version with Emma Lanford in front, this one in the vid is probably in Koens direction, too square for me again, "Horny":

As it was my wifes birthday yesterday and as she had lost a tape that I recorded some 10 yrs ago for her I decided to dedicate a little music thread to her, one new song just of the occasion, and 4 of the songs I remember from the tape.

Wow. I just realized this is the most viewed thread on the whole forum?

If so I will happily add something else to it as I stumbled over a long forgotten gem this early morning hours, inspired by an announcemnt and a Finnish Aki Kaurismäki movie about them on Spanish Television (mind you, this post will be looooong but hopefully worth the while, it is raining here and I have done a lot of research into my music past during the last 8 hours for lack of other work...):

EDIT JAN 2010: As we now have the limits enabled for three vids to be displayed per post, you will have to click on the links to see most of them, R.)

Do you remember these hairdos?

(http://www.geocities.com/cine_finlandes/Leningrad_cowboys.jpg)

Or those shoes?

(http://www.home-of-rock.de/Konzertberichte/Leningrad_Cowboys/Pics/Leningrad_Cowboys_11.jpg)

Well, they are not gone, they are still *very* active (and as I know that the identity will be revealed in the video I will not try to hide it any longer): The from my POV best ever Live and Show Band (though they call themselves the "Worst Band Of The World") is still performing (since ´98 with - nebst other lossses - a new singer and a new lead guitarrist), is on a new European Tour and will this summer perform in Palma de Mallorca, already looking forward to it (I have seen them about 10x live between ´88 and ´98, in small clubs and on big stages, and each concert was a blast. It looks, tough, that I will have to pay black marked prices for the concert her, all 60.000 tickets were sold on Friday within 1.5 hours... :( - not bad for a 500k inhabitants island):

Please, welcome the Leningrad Cowboys, a Finnish band pretending to be Russians who are pretending to be Americans  :D; brain child of already mentioned Finnish movie director genious Aki Kaurismäki, and a superb selection of the best Finnish musicians, a bad ass cover band for everything R+B in true Blues Brothers style...

Here something from 2008 (now 20 yrs older and 20 kg heavier each, comprised of currently 11 Cowboys and 2 Leningrad Ladies; make sure you have your volume turned up and are in Party Mood  ;D):

Leningrad Cowboys Play Hurriganes: Oowee Oohla

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8L6hHau3H0#normal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8L6hHau3H0#normal)

Now, how come that a band that does nothing but covers - though so well that some of the orignial authors could still learn a bit from them - can sell out so quickly and that people are actually fighting to see their concerts?

Well, you will have to join me on a time warp back to ´87 when nobody knew them (me neither):

At this time they did (from my POV) rather boring stuff like the following (and all non-live videos from here on are directed by Aki Kaurismäki who obviously saw their potential much earlier than the rest of the world; all screeplays allso by him). The protagonist of the video is (much missed after 1997) Mato Valtonen, as you can see the hairdoes were not yet a "brand" sign and the shoes were still normal...:

Leningrad Cowboys 1987 - Thru the Wire (for people that like great cinema and slow ballads)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaEQgUaq5gk#normal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaEQgUaq5gk#normal)

This all changed when Kaurismäki built the background for the legend in ´89 as can be seen in this nice and hilarious clip (which actually is from 1992, but as it fit in the timeline that I want to present allow me this small lie, I will rectify later in the post in detail):

The clip provides "the Finnish history from 1952 to 1969" and begins with the birth of the protagonist (Mato Valtonen, LC lead singer). The combo short film/music video describes typical events of the main character's life: From his school years to marriage, from the daily grind of working life to the routines of farming and his father's death, ending melancholically (how surprising Kaurismäki  ;D) in a scene where the main character gives up farming as it no longer provides a living. The rest of the Leningrad Cowboys - as well as the in Finland ever present Vodka - appear in many parts of it in a supporting role, hairdo, uniforms and shoes long established as a "brand/trademark" by then...:

Leningrad Cowboys: These Boots

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRvL11JdNBE#normal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRvL11JdNBE#normal)

1988 or ´89 (do not recall anymore) was also the first time those guys entered into my musical hoizon, I saw them in a club/disco in Kassel/Germany (Musiktheater, for anybody who knows the scene, well worth another thread) performing for abut 1k ppl for about 3 hours, and it was probably one of the best live concert parties I ever remember.

Once I had them on my screen, I kept following the news about them (not much internet then), until in 1989 a cincema film by Aki Kaurismäki came out (that is an absolute must-see), "Leningrad Cowboys go America", a road movie and music film in the best Blues Brothers tradition but "The European Way" and on top of that in the typical dry Kaurismäki Finnish humor.

Now, I do not know what you think about the Blues Brothers as film, but it was one of my favorites always, with it´s dry dialogues, the excellent music and musicians and the "no compomise" life style it featured for me it was (and keeps being) deep philosopy. In the ´80s, when I still was rich, I abut once a year would buy all tickets for cinema that had it on, invite all my friends, pay some extra money to the guy who worked there to turn up the volume, and then we would have a party...

DISCLAIMER: If you do not like music films or road movies you can safely skip this part from here til the next appearance of a line of "-----" as I am going to present you with some highlights of the film, almost all with a great music piece, though)...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Same with this film, it had me absolutely fascinated: Same dryness, same great music and musicians (Jim Jarmush, Tom Waits and many others both as actors as well as musicians), no place for compromises and a deep philosophical angle, also in the same way hilarious (though even more absurd in many aspects).

The background story is about a "Russian" (hence the bit about "Finnish pretending to be Russians" in the beginning of my post) band that is playing Russian music trying to get famous, but get rejected by a producer as he wants to hear "American" music (this was ´89 after all!), so they decide to leave Siberia and - pretending they were American all along (their "Manager" speas a kind of English) - to make a buck in the states.

They have a few problems to overcome: One of their buddies (the lead gutiarrist) had a little too much vodka and got deepfrozen in the tundra, but as they know about the symptoms they expect him to wake one day that they find the sun and can rapidly heat him up and so have to ake him along (in a coffin filled with ice cubes - and beer); the distance from Siberia through Alaska to the states is long, and they have only 700 dollars... Well, you can imagine (or not  :D, how it goes from there): Lots of citations of the Blues Brothers idea, but a completely different take...

It is in this film that the "Leningrad Cowwboys Legend" really started, the hairdoes, the shoes and the face of the manager became a trademark...

Here is the ppening scene of the film where they present (excellent) Russian Music to the "Producer" (dont worry about a bit not being in English, this will rapidly change) and decide to leave as they need to be "Americans":

Ok, you might wonder, how did they change from tractors to the car? Check out this marvellous short scene (only clip in this post w/o at least one music piece) where Jim Jarmush as 2nd hand car dealer gets them mobile: "I hope one of you guys got a pilot´s license, you know, a car like this you don´t drive, you *fly* it... With a car like that you can go to the moon and back..."

Then, at "Joes Place, Huston, Texas" (a bar where bikers hang out, after getting ignored with their rock´n roll, having lost half of their jackets and the singer having lost his voice, they - on a hunch:

Leningrad Cowboys perform "Born To Be Wild" (with a badass guitar solo)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxLzRocKxcM#normal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxLzRocKxcM#normal)


These just some impressions...

Of the original band members from the film Sakari Kuosmanen left soon after and has pursued a music and acting career in  Finland, appearing in many of Aki Kaurismaki's movies. Of the 10 original band members only Silu Seppälä, Sakke Järvenpää, Mauri Sumén & Mato Valtonen were still around by the time of the 1994 for the sequel, Leningrad Cowboys Meet Moses (like all sequels the film didnt catch me as the firstl, but the music was again spectacular...).


----------------------------------------- End of the film discussion part -------------------------------------------------------------

It was after the film that the band got really famous and great (actually, "megalomanic" might be my choice of words for what happened), espeically after they got sponsored by Nokia: There was a Nokia "Leningrad Cowboys" mobile, branded beer and vodka, comic books, t-shirts that glowed in the dark, earrings and so on, AFAIK the contract was the biggest ever sponosring for a band by a company.

From the Nokia Balalaika Show 1994 in Berlin that I had the chance to attend  :D (with the Russian Red Army Choir as explained in the next paragaph) the absolutely smashing performance (which makes clear why I call it the best ever live band) of

Leningrad Cowboys - Kasakka

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=savAEIOGsAU#normal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=savAEIOGsAU#normal)



Just before that, in 1993 the produced the "Total Balalaika Show" where they had the excellent idea to join up with the Red Army Choir, they performed to 70,000 fans and the concert in Helsinki was just electric. The concert was performed in the historic Senate Square. This was where thousands of people came to see the body of most famous Finnish leader, Mannerheim who was head of the Finnish Army during the 2nd World War when the country fought valiantly against its deadly enemy, Russia. And here, some 50 years later, this Finnish band were performing with the Russian Red Army. It was an unforgettable experience. Rock n'roll that day really did stop the traffic.


Unforgettable: Leningrad Cowboys & Red Army Choir perform Sweet Home Alabama:

Now, they have since tuned down a bit, their CDs do not sell as before, but they are by no means gone and live theyre worthwile a visit anytime, the last time I saw them was 2003 during their "Global Balalaika Tour" with this *super* version (Uriah Heep could learn from it) of

with music I got stuck in the '80s, I can't seem to find any kind of music or groups that have been born after the 80's that are able to keep me interested...

Koen,
  The re-make by Limp Bizkit is sort of a melodic sleep-walk through the song.  The original was edgy, angry, and by The Who.  You couldn't improve on that. 

  I think The Who's version is much better, but then I am dating myself by prefering The Who over Limp Bizkit.

  Also, for another amazing classic song, John Entwistle wrote "Had Enough" for The Who, and so much of it rings applicable to today, even though the song was written in 1978.  I'd post it but don't really know how for this forum.  Great songs, those two.

Rattler,

Man, I almost died laughing at the Zidane video to the tune of Rammstein's, "Du Hasst Mich." 

My family and I were watching the game, but decided to head out to a restaurant to eat, instead of watching it to the end.  We were more hungry than interested.  When we got to the restaurant, guess what was on the TV?  Yep, the game, so I was half watching out of the corner of my eye, when suddenly......The Infamous Head Butt!  I couldn't believe what I had just seen.  I had to see it several times, in slow motion, to finally have it dawn on me what Zidane had done.  Amazing.  As for that video, I better not watch it too many times in a row, or I'll need to be hospitalized.  That is lethally funny.

Quote
No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes

No one knows what it's like
To be hated
To be fated
To telling only lies

But my dreams
They aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

No one knows what it's like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you

No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through

But my dreams
They aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

When my fist clenches, crack it open
Before I use it and lose my cool
When I smile, tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a fool

If I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
If I shiver, please give me a blanket
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

No one knows what it's like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man

another story....

again...around the age of 18 (1988)

my brother was in the Belgian army stationed in Germany (Soest)

and they could buy stuff taxfree...also LP's, cassettes etc...

for a friend of mine I had to bring along U2's 'The Joshua Tree'....I thought...WANKER....U2 hihi   :drama:  hihi  .....continue reading below the videos..... waa

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LMxmtTkXgs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LMxmtTkXgs)
low quality but a good mixture of 'Joshua Tree'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1j_vyQrWO4 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1j_vyQrWO4)
B-side"All I Want Is You" 'Unchained Melody' (original from Gareth Gates)

But since I'm always open for new stuff I played it on my LP-player and it was an overwhelming discovery....just imagine that the first U2 record you hear is 'The Joshua Tree', their best ever and one of the best albums ever made by anyone....got hooked and became a big fan...

 kissme

for me it was another late '80s experience with another band/album to add to my list....

Pink Floyd live - Delicate Sound of Thunder (double live cd)
The Nits - Urk (double live cd) (dutch band)
Depeche Mode - 101 (double live cd)
U2 - The Joshua Tree (followed by the live album 'Rattle and Hum')

Post by: Rattler on 10 May 2009, 22:08:09
Long time no music... or too many vids in one post which make it hard to listen to the whole post...

Probably it is just my taste, but the way I address a music post is *selecting* the "example" - or what I judge to be the "best" piece from an artist I want to feature/present because I am intrigued, and not add up the ones that I find equally good (if they do not convolute as part of the thread, i.e. "illustrating" a narrated history, as in my "Leningrad Coboys" post). I always fear that the superficial reader - while basically interested in music or its history - when having to chose from many pieces in one post will always - Murphy´s Law! - pick the one that least suits his taste and will not more than superficially check the rest, if at all...

This said, as I still not have finished my promised "Spanish Current Music" thread and realize that it will be long (though connected with a narrated history), I will break it up into bits, here goes #1:

In the last 20 years or so in Spain has developed a very interesting Rock/Pop/R+B/Fink scene that does not only produce very dancable music, but also impresses with great artists, perfectly poem-like lyrics and have nothing to do with any "Castings", those are genuines.

As I now do not want to go into detials yet, check out this (Brasilian!) guy by the name of Youssou N' Dour (better known by his artist name: Carlhinos Brown), who set a trend (that influenced and joined with some earlier others that I am going to talk abut in another post), and produced a very rocky, funky and disco dancable sound in the mid ´90s, which many bands in Spain today (partially) copy.

I will present the same song in three takes, first the studio version (from 1997), which, after listening into the first minute will not fined really revealling. The reason: Carlhinos Brown works live magic, this is where the fun is. Accordingly, I will post as 2nd vid the one when the song was first presented, at the "Heineken Concerts", 1995, so you can see how much more "drive" (drummer beating early, in this case even pushed by Carlhinos Brown´s guitar) the piece has. Last, what happens in the audience, from a short 1 min clip from a Barcelona concert of Carlhinos Brown... Enjoy! (you may safely turn the volume up a bit).

Carlhinos Brown, "A Namorada", Studio version and official vid, 1997, song starts at 0:45 (if you want more "drive" and power, scroll down to #2):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mu1iKLq-J5s (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mu1iKLq-J5s)

Carlhinos Brown, "A Namorada", live version 1995 - actually the first time the song was played in public - at "Heineken Concerts", song starts at 1:20
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGk5UubUbac (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGk5UubUbac)

We here in Palma de Mallorca also had a good week:

- Simple Minds (yesterday)

- "El Canto del Loco" last week (one of my favorite Modern Spanish Rock Bands, well known all through Spain and one of the three top bands), with 15 Euros almost free for 8k ppl at the parking lot of Real Mallorca Fubol Club Stadium (Son Moix), turn volume well up:

El Canto Del Loco - La Madre De Jose (Video) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKY6E0CjBsc#)

While I havent started my thread on Modern Spanish Rock yet, here one of my themes and takes: The protagonists are all uniting what I have so often in this thread pleaded for
Quote
(I am all for the lyrics all the time, and for a good solo, or a good arrangement, or all of those; additionally they had to be worth to save money to see them live in concert...) has such stuff as (they all fit the mentioned categories)

: Excellent musicians, excellent lyrics (even as stand-by-themselves poems they are valid), and perfect arrangements. Missing the bad-ass solos, but those we have in other bands here...  waa

Koen will love that one: Por Ti (= For you), El Canto del Loco:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=$1#errorPrivate video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=$1#errorPrivate video)

I like this one more (actually one of my favorite of this band, for the lyrics, I lived all this once): "Insoportable (= unbearable), El Canto del Loco"

Upcoming next weekends concert (and currently listening):

"Ojos de Brujo"... (Eyes of the Wizard)  iconclap

Again, you will have to wait for my in-depth dissection of modern Spanish Rock/Pop, but here another appetizer (and you can already memorize the name of the protagonists of this band "La Marina" and "La Susi", as they will appear various times and at different ages in my thread, the latter is one of the key figures in Spanish current music):

This is a straightforward Flamenco band (and no, they do not the Northern European "cleaned" versions of groups like "Gypsy Kings"  nono, but the real thing), the modern version (the only folk music that has evolved and is less than dead, in Europe), they carry you away. It is a a nine-ppl band from Barcelona, who describe their style as "jipjop flamenkillo" (hip-hop with a little flamenco). They sold over 100,000 copies of their self-produced Barí album, and hav received several awards, among these the BBC Radio 3 World Music Award for Europe in 2004 (having also been nominated in 2003) and the Latin Grammy 2008.

They have no label backing, they made their own -  "La Fábrica de Colores" -  to get complete artistic freedom for their album "Barí", dodging the pressure they received from their record company Edel Records for their debut album "Vengue".

Enjoy!

Koen will love the Bob Marley adaptions "Get Up, Stand up! (Levantate!)"

Ojos de Brujo - Techari Live cover of "Get up Stand up" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEHG8HffPug#)

But everything they do I just *love*, this is true *ART*!  iconclap (and dancable, of cause, it´s Flamenco, after all... ;D):

Ojos de Brujo, "Ventilador R-80"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRVwG-X1S_g# (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRVwG-X1S_g#)

Closest to "classic" Flamenco what they show here (live in Jools, Holland):

Ojos de Brujo, "Sultanas de Merkaillo"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXayjdpn99Q#ws (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXayjdpn99Q#ws)

But they also do (with excellence!) very experimental stuff trying to fusion true hip-hop with Flamenco, and succeed:

Ojos de Brujo, "Tahitá"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7GElBjCPXQ# (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7GElBjCPXQ#)

For those that cannot wait til I get my act together, follow the links of my (German) Flamenco article of las year here: http://ohlmer.es/blog/64 (http://ohlmer.es/blog/64)

I promise, I will have a *lot* of fun at the concert....  :champ:

Well, been researching dead muical geniuses of the last 50 yrs for some hours now, additionally working on my "Contemporary Spanish Popular Music" thread, and in the end I simply could not go on anymore, exhausted.

So, to find peace of mind, back to classical:

Starting out with some light Grieg (Peer Gynt, Hall of the Mountain King) to change chip and get in the mood, then made it to JSB, Toccata and Fuge in D-minor, probably the best meditative piece I ever have heard: The beauty of the sound, combined with the beauty of the (mathematical) architecture and the rhythm patterns created by the 5 voices (what we call arrangement today, Fugue starts about 1:35 into the piece) had me totally captured.

Imagining that the guy simply *improvised* that on a sunday morning in church (that is what "toccata" means) stretches my imagination (and respect) for what the human being is able to achieve to the max...

Enjoy! (best heard when you have time to listen with volume turned up to what your equipment/house/neighbours allow, 5+ brandies or equivalent dose of other drugs and nobody around to disturb you for 12+ minutes)

Wow, coincidences:

I did some research on Flamenoc this early morning (0430J, we have only game or music shows on telly when I get up) about whom I think is the last true "cantaor" (= Flamenco Singer) alive, and realized he had (as so many of the Flamenco crowd in general, part of the job) done a crossover experiment with Rock in the ´90s.

Result: Truly Hypnotic! Meditative!

(...just FDR, I had listened to it a few weeks ago already, and did not like it.

After now having listened to both the original and other pieces of the singer more than several times - the Andalú he speaks is not easy to understand - , I find suddenly I am addicted:

Enrique Morente captured the essence of the song - probably because he worked so close together with LC for many years and because I first did just interpret him as singer and not as artist...- which he truly *is* ...).

DISCLAIMER: Anyway, CAUTION: Do listen more than 3x at your own risk. You might end up addicted.

On another take (lyrics are a fairly straightforward translation of the original) it is a bit the history of my life, might influence my judgement... just that I started with Berlin and ended up in Mallorca...  :whistle:

Enrique Morente & Lagartija Nick "Primero Conquistaremos Manhattan..." (First We Take Manhattan...)

first we take manhattan-morente&lagartija nick (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0586GEH200#normal)

Just to contrast why I think the guy is a genious and why I call this a crossover experiment, here what he usually does (this is 20 yrs old, he is now 67, but the intensity and his body languge are the same as today. For those who understand Spanish, you will find an extra: The most beautiful lyrics imaginable; translated excerpt of at 4:10 in the vid: "And you want to compare..." - talking about type and intensity of love, R. - "...a pond with a fountain: Comes the sun, the pond vanishes, the fountain continues to exist..." ). Hypnotic, again:

Enrique Morente, Solea de Albeniz:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1ntHSWseKU#normal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1ntHSWseKU#normal)

Today, much older, the same intensity that I admire (ignore the website reference, it is for his daughter, "Estrella" Morente), here with a Buleria (which I do not really fany, but his face when he sings: sin palabras):

Enrique Morente, Buleria

Aah, great to be able to post in a board w/o double posting infraction rule... :)

Sooooo long forgotten, one great band were the Swiss band "Yello" (just the two guys you see in the vid) of the mid ´80s. Really cannot understand that I haven´t been listening to them for some 15 yrs+.... must be Alzheimer....

Probably the beginning of Techno? They were geniouses, way ahead of their times...

As the last one is not obvious:

#1 (with Shirley Bassey, oh god! What a voice!) = "Rhythm Divine" (one of my all time favorites: if you dont like it after 1:30, you´re lost for music :) ), #2 0 "Vicious Games), and #3 = "Oh Yeah", all from the "Stella" album (and in much better quality regarding those power basses if coming from CD).

Enjoy!

Nênå - 99 Luf†ballôns (Live) Germany (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vu3QZniBayw#normal)

- Ideal, "Eiszeit" (turn volume, basses, trebles well up, bad recording):

Quote
Das Telefon steht schon seit Jahren still.
Kein Mensch mit dem ich reden will.
Ich seh' im Spiegel mein Gesicht,
Nichts hat mehr Gewicht.

Ich werfe Schatten an die Wand
Un halte zärtlich meine Hand.
Ich red' mit mir und schau' ins Licht,
Mich erreichst du nicht.

In meinem Film bin ich der Star.
Ich komm' auch nur alleine klar.
Panzerschrank aus Diamant,
Kombination unbekannt.

Eiszeit, mit mir beginnt die Eiszeit,
im Labyrinth der Eiszeit, minus neunzig Grad

Eiszeit, mit mir beginnt die Eiszeit,

Peter Schilling - Major Tom (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5r6E4RyCk4g#normal)

Then, mid-80´s, with the unexpected success, all went English again, to impact in the US (but nothing comparabe to the "Vöööööllig Looosgehelöst..." of the German version:

Quote
Standing there alone,
the ship is waiting.
All systems are go.
"Are you sure?"
Control is not convinced,
but the computer
has the evidence.
No need to abort.
The countdown starts.

Watching in a trance,
the crew is certain.
Nothing left to chance,
all is working.
Trying to relax
up in the capsule
"Send me up a drink."
jokes Major Tom.
The count goes on...

4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us
drifting, falling.
Floating weightless
calling, calling home...

Second stage is cut.
We're now in orbit.
Stabilizers up,
runnning perfect.
Starting to collect
requested data.
"What will it affect
when all is done?"
thinks Major Tom.

Back at ground control,
there is a problem.
"Go to rockets full."
Not responding.
"Hello Major Tom.
Are you receiving?
Turn the thrusters on.
We're standing by."
There's no reply.

4, 3, 2, 1
Earth below us
drifting, falling.
Floating weightless
calling, calling home...

Across the stratosphere,
a final message:
"Give my wife my love."
Then nothing more.

Far beneath the ship,
the world is mourning.
They don't realize
he's alive.
No one understands,
but Major Tom sees.
"Now the light commands
this is my home,
I'm coming home."

Earth below us
drifting, falling.
Floating weightless
coming home...
Earth below us
drifting, falling.
Floating weightless
coming, coming
home...
home.....



PETER SCHILLING - Major Tom (Coming Home) (Extended Version) - 1984 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60p1LH3_LCo#normal)

or, Nena, made #1 in the US:

Nena English version 99 Red Balloons (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ur79O0S78bs#normal)

again, nothing compared to the original, to cite a contemporary critic:

Quote
A song with a conscience, While lighthearted and playful in tone, the song is ultimately one of cold war tension; a war begins when trigger happy generals send planes to intercept a mass of unidentified objects (balloons) just above the horizon. The conflict escalates as everyone wants a piece of the action, and by the end of the song there is nothing left... no fighters, no balloons, just a world in ruins. "99 Red Balloons," was popular on U.S. radio stations in the early '80s. The English version, however, was less a direct translation of the original than an attempt to appeal to the vast English speaking audience. The group (and Nena is a group, not just singer Nena Kerner) Cleary sounds more at home in their native language, and the German original is ("99 Luftballons") far superior to its English cousin.



Enjoy,

Rattler

WASP

W.A.S.P. - Heaven's Hung In Black (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pbrqWarXPw0&feature=fvw#normal)

I can't take anymore
I have no more wings
I can't take anymore
The gates of heaven sealed

Don't you hear me
Don't you hear me
Don't you fear me
Of never coming back
Do you know what it's like
When heaven's hung in black

I can't take anymore
Our walls are black and bleed
I can't take anymore
No rooms here for your screams

Don't you hear me
Don't you hear me
Don't you fear me
Of never coming back
Oh, no more tears please
Hanging heaven black

No don't you leave me to die
Don't you leave me to die
Don't you leave me to die
No don't you leave me to die

And you'll know what it's like
The wailing wall of sighs
Hanging heaven black
And you'll know what it's like
When paradise is blind
When heaven's hung in black

Time? How can you say
That I've no time
Am I blind? Now you say that
Heaven's blind, yeah
Across the bridge of sighs, blind, time, time

Oh lord, don't you leave me to die
No, don't you leave me to die
Don't you leave me to die
No lord, don't you leave me to die

And you'll know what it's like
The wailing wall of sighs
Hanging heaven black
And you'll know what it's like
When paradise is blind
Painting heaven black
Across the bridge of sighs
Your losing heaven's light
Heavens hung in black

Solideo, my friend, when you are really down, you need to go deeper down to recover (my experience), wreck yourself, go to pieces, and then start recomposing yourself as new (El Zahir, pierda tu historia personal!... contandola...!):

Tom Waits (in a bar at last hour, with the stools on the bar, and the bar tender wanting to go but staying because he pities you) will always do it, also (if it´s about love) Marla Glen (be sure to empty a bottle of JD on me, then, and be sure to DON´T CARRY! - y0u might find yourself detained for life time - ... :drama:)

(lyrics for this version, here (scroll down a bit): http://ohlmer.es/blog/524 (http://ohlmer.es/blog/524))

The Piano Has Been Drinking (Bounced Checks version '81) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVP6Xta84rU#normal)


And then, Marla (lyrics by me, all stuff on the internet has been copied w/o thinking from *one* stupid translator, and strange as it may be: THEY ALL COPY THE SHIT, despite it is so easy to hear the internet lyrics are wrong...):

Quote
Seems like I can´t find the words to tell you I want you here
Seems like I can´t find the words to tell you I want you near
When our eyes meet, the love in my heart sinks deeply inside
For your love is the cure and the answer to my heart
Can that be?

You know you hurt me
You knew that I was crumbled up inside

Never again I want to feel that feeling
Never again I want to hurt like that
Kind of feeling it made me close my heart
Kind of hurt that made me feel lies
And never again I want to live this feeling

Seems like I can´t find no ways to tell you I want you near

You know you hurt me...
You knew that I was crumbled up inside...

You knew that we could never be no more, no
And now we both feel how love can be...

It seems like I can´t find no words to tell you I want you near
Seems like I can´t find no words to tell you I want you here
When our eyes meet the love in my heart sinks deeply inside
For your love is the cure and the answer to my heart
Can that be?

You know you hurt me...
You knew that I was crumbled up inside...

You knew that we could never be no more, no
And now we both feel how love can be...

You hurt me

Oh, there is more from where this came from  :D:

Like, e.g., Cal Tjader (and when I put that on on fiestas, actually people dance to it´s nice, relaxed grooves, despite being a bit old, all ´70s + early ´80s... Usually best digested towards end of the fiesta, a GT in hand and space on the dance floor... :whistle:)

Turn volume up and trebles down to get the dancefloor effect... :)

Actually I think they would all lend well to a modern re-make, and some found out already: Here a remix of Cal Tjaders "morning Mist" by A.T.B.A.N Klann, makes the same effect, just more my style for dacning:

This is NOT RESERVOIR DOGS! (and whoever told you it was, should be sent to prison for at least a month and made seen all Tarantino films over and over again - with open eyes like in Clockwork Orange - until it sinks in):

This is from the - IMHO - best Tarantino Film ever (and I know you here keep changing film titles all the time - a leftover from Franco times censors at work - , but I also guess even in Spain they do not change the film names to match another film of the same author  hihi)...

This is one of the key scenes of PULP FICTION, check 1:18/19

Yeah, although sometimes I need to be fast and furious to get relaxed. When I need peace in mind I use to hear this song:

Queensryche - Silent Lucidity (DVD) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhat-xUQ6dw&feature=fvst#noexternalembed-normal)

Hush now dont cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye
Youre lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream
Spinning in your head
Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game of life
So here it is, another chance
Wide awake you face the day
Your dream is over...or has it just begun?

Theres a place I like to hide
A doorway that I run to in the night
Relax child, you were there
But only didnt realize it and you were scared
Its a place where you will learn
To face your fears, retrace the tears
And ride the whims of your mind
Commanding in another world
Suddenly, you hear and see
This magic new dimension

Chorus
I-will be watching over you
I-am gonna help you see it through
I-will protect you in the night
I-am smiling next to you...in silent lucidity

If you open your mind for me
You wont rely on open eyes to see
The walls you built within
Come tumblng down, and a new world will begin
Living twice at once you learn
You7re safe froom pain in the dream domain
A soul set free to fly
A round trip journey in your head
Master of illusion, can you realize
Your dreams alive, you can be the guide but...

Cheers

Nothing wrong about that, experience ineveitably goes with age, e.g. the young Zidane would never have triumphed in El Madrid... and he is/was the overall most complete soccer player I ever have seen in my life, and I am happy to have seen him play so often... :

Here you go: Dribbling, passes, control, and goals, he was not young, but experience told him where to be when:  :champ:

Music (after the 1 min intro): "La Caution - Thé à la menthe" (and one of the best soccer vids ever, also):

ZIDANE - EL MAESTRO (VIVA EL FUTBOL) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmNNRVzILFw#normal)

First song: De Los Alibaba, "Perro", 2nd song: "Smells Like Teen Spirit", Nirvana (and I feel embarrased for the horrible ortography all through the vid, and: FORGET EVEN STARTING TO COMPARE ROBINHO: He is the "Triathlon Man": "Corre, Bicicleta, y: Nada (Spanish pun: "Runs, bycicle - his dribbling standard move - and: Nothing: "Nada" = swims and nothing, double meaning), as can well be seen in this vid from 1:24 -2:10 !:

I don´t give a sh*t for football, is not the thing that makes me not sleep: watching 22 millionaries kicking a ball and making me angry.

I prefer to disturb my mind with other things. I am a social football watcher, I simply do it when we are all friends together in a bar having tapas and beer and nobody really watches the game.   ;)

well, watching Zidane is like contemplating a "Van Gogh" or a "Rembrandt", or listening to Bach or Beethoven... :) And, whatever he earned, except for the dsigrace in his last match (the headbutt, also visible in the first vid), he never made me angry even when he alone beat Barca... :)

There is a 60  min vid out there somewhere, just showing his feet through one match, to "Carmina Burana" in whole, it never gets tiring... :) (some snips make the intro of the first vid I posted). Remember this was an answer to your "feeling my age" bit... :)

Speaking seriously, for me only three true games exist (different layout emphasis of cause, if you understand any game as a model of real life) that hone your skills in the various aspects of real life: 1. Poker (character), 2. Chess (wits), and 3. Soccer (teamwork).

Song question of the 2nd vid solved: De los Alibaba: "Perro" (they´re from Santo Domingo).

Not unknown to happen, my friend, if you load your RAM with lots of pics (pics take lots of memory).

My recommendation (from having been burnt several times that way):

- use Firefox and use msg preview (that saves content every time you preview, even after a crash Firefox will restore it)
- OR compose offline (saving every step, of cause) and then just post the result
- OR post in the staff section to compose (under a "draft" prefix to the title), editing your post all along as often as you like, and only when finished post to the section you want it seen.

Hope that helps,

Ah, what great songs, Jilly! You really whirl this thread about (in the positive sense)!  thx2 urock

Now, today I was eating out in the house of a good friend (whom I am trying to convince to provide me with material to get him into our Zoo, he deserves it, more soon, stay tuned...), and heard a singer I had not ever heard before: Julieta Venegas!

Now running in the background while I type, I remember having had a discussion with Solideo about the German singer "Nena" some time ago (well, not really a discussion, it was rather one sided.. :) ), and the music in the background of dinner reminded me soooo much of the feelings Nena raised in her time, I want to share...

This one especially for Solideo (the third !) as he will understand the lyrics (you can google them with "letra insert song title and author here" and then passing them through the translation machine: (http://translate.google.com/translate_t?hl=es#), and then also for myself to fall back to off and on, as I also play the Accordeon and keep saying since years this should be a standard instrument in modern pop music: She uses it with a lot of grace and sense, to support her nice voice arrangements...

Enjoy, (or not):

HI Rattler, sometimes we desagree in music. I don´t will download this bird´s songs (Julieta Venegas).

Today I am so tired of love songs that I wanna finish when listening this ad Pablo Neruda poetical video recital.

Puedo escribir los versos mas tristes esta noche..... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YFxgEp2O6c#normal)

Puedo escribir los versos más tristes esta noche.

Escribir, por ejemplo: "La noche está estrellada,
y tiritan, azules, los astros, a lo lejos."

El viento de la noche gira en el cielo y canta.

Puedo escribir los versos más tristes esta noche.
Yo la quise, y a veces ella también me quiso.

En las noches como esta la tuve entre mis brazos.
La besé tantas veces bajo el cielo infinito.

Ella me quiso, a veces yo también la quería.
Cómo no haber amado sus grandes ojos fijos.

Puedo escribir los versos más tristes esta noche.
Pensar que no la tengo. Sentir que la he perdido.

Oir la noche inmensa, más inmensa sin ella.
Y el verso cae al alma como al pasto el rocío.

Qué importa que mi amor no pudiera guardarla.
La noche esta estrellada y ella no está conmigo.

Eso es todo. A lo lejos alguien canta. A lo lejos.
Mi alma no se contenta con haberla perdido.

Como para acercarla mi mirada la busca.
Mi corazón la busca, y ella no está conmigo.

La misma noche que hace blanquear los mismos árboles.
Nosotros, los de entonces, ya no somos los mismos.

Ya no la quiero, es cierto, pero cuánto la quise.
Mi voz buscaba el viento para tocar su oído.

De otro. Será de otro. Como antes de mis besos.
Su voz, su cuerpo claro. Sus ojos infinitos.

Ya no la quiero, es cierto, pero tal vez la quiero.
Es tan corto el amor, y es tan largo el olvido.

Porque en noches como esta la tuve entre mis brazos,
mi alma no se contenta con haberla perdido.

Aunque este sea el ultimo dolor que ella me causa,
y estos sean los ultimos versos que yo le escribo.

What a nice poem, and I especially like the way the gentleman reads it: The music goes well with it, and so do the pictures.

Here a quick translation for our English speaking users:

Quote
I can write the saddest lines tonight.

Write, for example: "The night is starry
and shiver they do, blue, the stars, far away. "

The night wind whirls in the sky and sings.

I can write the saddest lines tonight.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me, too.

On nights like this one I held her in my arms.
I kissed her over and over under the endless sky.

She loved me, and sometimes I loved her, too.
How could one not have loved her great still eyes.

I can write the saddest lines tonight.
Thinking that I do not have her anymore. To feel that I lost her.

To hear the immense night, more immense without her.
And the verse falls on the soul as dew on the grass.

What does it matter that my love could not keep her.
The night is starry and she is not with me.

That's all. In the distance someone sings. Far away.
My soul can´t accept that I have lost her.

As if to get her closer, my gaze is searching for her.
My heart is searching for her, and she is not with me.

The same night whitening the same trees.
We, then, are no longer the same.

I no longer love her, true, but how I loved her.
My voice searched the wind to touch her ear.

Someone else. She will be of someone else. Like before my kisses.
Her voice, her light body. Her infinite eyes.

I no longer love her, true, but maybe I love her.
Love is so short and forgetting is so long.

Because in nights like this one I held her in my arms,
my soul cannot accept I have lost her.

Although this is the last pain she causes me,
and these are the last verses that I write.

Thanks for the translation

Solideo had also done one, but his PC crashed before he could publish.

Let me add that in Spanish this poem - sounding curt and harsh in the English translation maybe - transports melody, soul and "more than a feeling", it is pure art...

The dark side of soldiering: How could have anyone in his sane mind, whatever his political stance, conciously have killed this great poet, Noble Prize winner, a flag for Chile, just because of orders, in the coup? And "...doing it for my country!..." ??

We do not know the name of the soldier, but I guess he will not have slept well ever since, and he won´t in the future.

And as so often in this screwed cold war times, the CIA behind it, depriving the world of a great thinker and poet just because it suited the "US interests" better to have a "commie" less... :(

Here one more, one of my favorite love poems (as it captures exactly how I feel when I do love...), with more music, and the lyrics in Spanish and translated to English:

Te amo
Te amo de una manera inexplicable
De una forma inconfesable
De un modo contradictorio
    I love you
I love you in some inexplicable way
In an unconfessable way
In ways that are contradictory
 
Te amo
Con mis estados de ánimo que son muchos
Y cambian de humor continuamente
Por lo que ya sabes...
El tiempo la vida y la muerte
    I love you
With my moods - and I have many -
that constantly are changing their swing
As you so well know by now ...
Time, life and death
 
Te amo
Con el mundo que no entiendo
Con la gente que no comprende
Con la ambivalencia de mi alma
Con la incoherencia de mis actos
Con la fatalidad del destino
Con la conspiración del deseo
Con la ambigüedad de los hechos
    I love you
With the world that I cannot understand
With the people who do not understand
With the ambivalence of my soul
With the inconsistency of my actions
With the inevitability of fate
With the conspiracy of desire
With the ambiguity of the facts
 
Aun cuando te digo que not te amo, te amo
Hasta cuando te engaño no te engaño...
En el fondo llevo a cabo un plan
Para amarte mejor.
    Even when telling you that I don´t love you, I love you
Even when I am cheating on you I am not cheating on you ...
Basically I am carrying out a plan
To love you better.
 
Te amo...
sin reflexionar, inconscientemente,
irresponsablemente, espontáneamente,
involuntariamente, por instinto,
por impulso, irracionalmente.
En efecto no tengo argumentos lógicos,
ni siquiera improvisados
para fundamentar este amor que siento por ti,
que surgió misteriosamente de la nada,
que no ha resuelto mágicamente nada,
y que milagrosamente, de a poco, con poco y nada
ha mejorado lo peor de mí.
    I love you ...
without thinking, unconsciously,
irresponsibly, spontaneously
unintentionally, by instinct,
through impulse, irrationally.
In fact I have no logical arguments,
not even improvised
to substantiate this love I feel for you,
which emerged mysteriously from nowhere,
which not has magically solved anything,
but that miraculously, slowly, with little or nothing
has made better the worst in me.
 
Te amo.
Te amo con un cuerpo que no piensa,
con un corazón que no razona,
con una cabeza que no coordina.
Te amo
Incomprensiblemente.
Sin preguntarme, por qué te amo.
Sin importarme por qué te amo.
Sin cuestionarme por qué te amo.
Te amo
sencillamente porque te amo.
Yo mismo no se por qué te amo.
    I love you
I love you with a body that does not think,
With a heart that does not reason,
With a head that does not coordinate ...
I love you
Incomprehensibly
Without asking myself why I love you
Without resting importance as to why I love you
Without reasoning as to why I love you ...
I love you ...
Simply because I love you ...
I myself do not know why I love you.

Yes, I agree with Rattler on that.  However, none can really stand up to the original.  Yes, yes, I am showing my age on that, but the original was so starkly sad and poignant that you could feel the pain and loneliness.  The instruments were solo as well, even enhancing how alone the characters in the lyrics really were.

Heinrich, my take also, the original has something special, with the strings and all, always had been one of my favorites once I started drugs in the late´70s, and made it clear those where genius composers... (and sorry Solideo, as much appreciated are those versions I did not know - and of which the third has made it ot my machine - , but: A purist in the end will always turn out to be a purist, more so if he happens to be German by culture... :) ):

Quote
Ah, look at all the lonely people
Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been,
Lives in a dream...
Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from ?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong ?

Father Mckenzie writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear...
No one comes near.
Look at him working: Darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there...

Why does he care?

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Eleanor Rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father Mckenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people
Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
Where do they all belong?

Sorry to disagree (that´s why we call it discussion board), but Black Symphony (and I was ot aware ther was a studio version???) is their greatest work ever from my POV, I have not bught the DVD, but listened to a lot of snippets ovr the years.

Now, more forgotten stuff from the ´80s (70´s and ß´80s is where I know my turf), recall who in ´81 invented the slap bass as a central motive in songs?

For the musically challenged that ask "WTF is a "slap" bass??), here a short demo (today every serious bass player has it pat down), it is a thumb stroke on the bass that makes is sound a dry "slap" almost substituting drums, great for adding rhythm with a bass to e.g. funky or jazzy pieces:

Slap bass basics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8MnC1itj4w#normal)

bass slap school #1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzLJrJQjCF4#normal)

It was invented (?) by Mark King who (even if it should turn out he didnt invent it after all with all you wise guys out there) made it *the* bass revolution in the early ´80s and everybody ran to learn it:
Mark King Slap Solo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yioVmqlt2Fk#normal)

Here the very rare original 1981 version of the first song based on slap bass that ever made #1 in the charts (NOTE how he never touches the bass with fingers, it is all "slapping", and it carries the base of the song´s rhythm, the drums are just painting it out with snare and HiHats)

Level 42 - Love Games (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGNhNlvZPls#normal)

And here, 25 yrs later, he has made it an art, finally, *much* better version funk wise, but for some strange reason I prefer the older version: More soul: Check his hand in this one alos, in ´81 he was "playing" it, in 2006 he was "working" it...:

Ah, old good Rod! So happy he didnt go for soccerplayer... :) Thanks, Jilly, hit my taste!

Well, as it was (is) raining here all day and I am sitting in front of the comp since more than 16 hours now (with lunch and later siesta break) I am listening to stuff from my Vinyl collection which brings me back to page 1 of this thread (and it was a response to Koen´s ELO then), some more great mixes of lyrics, guitar solos and, most important in this case, *arrangements*:

My ´70s stuff (as I am all for the lyrics all the time, and for a good solo, or a good arrangement, or all of those; additionally they had to be worth to save money to see them live in concert...) has such stuff as (they all fit the mentioned categories):


A typical case this for music I did not at all like the first time I heard it but that after repeating a few times had me immersed and addicted: Subtly surreal lyrics, strange themes for songs, great musicians individually, a new take on rock and jazz at that time (´72-´82), Lady and gentlemen, one of the all time best (voice) arrangers, Donald Fagan and his "Steely Dan"!

For starters "Haitian Divorce" (´72?), which (while not one of the best pieces) surely combines all the mentioned above and so hopefully will set the pace (you will have time enough to give a quick look at the lyrics, the song only starts after 0:35 - ...ah, that wah-wah in combo with the talk box!  :champ:):

Quote
Babs and clean willie were in love they said
So in love the preachers face turned red
Soon everybody knew the thing was dead
He shouts, she bites, they wrangle through the night
She go crazy
Got to make a getaway
Papa say
Chorus:
Oh - no hesitation
No tears and no hearts breakin
No remorse
Oh - congratulations
This is your haitian divorce

She takes the taxi to the good hotel
Bon marché as far as she can tell
She drinks the zombie from the cocoa shell
She feels alright, she get it on tonight
Mister driver
Take me where the music play
Papa say

Chorus

At the grotto
In the greasy chair
Sits the charlie with the lotion and the kinky hair
When she smiled, she said it all
The band was hot so
They danced the famous merengue
Now we dolly back
Now we fade to black

Tearful reunion in the usa
Day by day those memories fade away
Some babies grow in a peculiar way
It changed, it grew, and everybody knew
Semi-mojo
Whos this kinky so-and-so?
Papa go

Chorus


Steely Dan - Haitian Divorce (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcokCLbdxuw#normal)

Along the same line the story of the entrenched man who had murdered his father talking in his mind to the police, "Don't Take Me Alive", 1972 (a rare case of a song that *starts* with a badass guitar solo...): "...got a case of dynamite, I could hold out here all night...!".. Again, this won´t hit the first time, but this rhythm will turn out to be in your head for a while if you listen ever to it three times...

Steely Dan - Don't Take Me Alive (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AslDzpaCURs#normal)

And, while not the one that made #1 in the charts (that was "Rikki dont lose that number"), one of their evergreens, "Do It Again", from ´72 or so (didnt look, but it´s not so refined as later stuff):

Steely Dan- Do It Again (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_YIUn9Jd1g#normal)

Worthwile listening to all their stuff ("Peg", "Black Cow" etc), am through the third album now, and they seem as fresh as yesterday, becoming more jazzy and smooth with age, but the basic style is always there (even in Fagan´s solo albums later).

Enjoy

@ Jilly: One and only allright!  :champ:

EDIT AUG 2010:  wtf2 Amazing how google/youtube can destroy such a good post and deprive us from viewing what I wrote about (there is no copyright on the vids after 33 yrs, I double checked)....  chsaw  censored3 censored3 :ouch:

There are still some excerpts of the mentioned vids on the tube, you can look them up, but I wont post them, they do not show what I meant to delliver as the connection of visual and musical rhythm that made them so great is disrupted. Mabe in the future again?

END EDIT

Now, for something completely different:

Whenever I feel I need a boost I inevitably fall back on Beethoven, directed by Karajan: While IMHO his reputation as director is slightly overdone from a strict musical POV (even more so now as he is dead), he does deserve it because of two methods he introduced to classics:

1. He was bass centered and somehow understood that modern (20th century) audiences living with radio and tv were/are indoctrinated to bass heavy voices, ads, music, etc. and took the right conclusion: Double, triple, auadruple the bass section (contrabass, celli, violas and the big drums) independently from what was written in the partiture.

2. He discovered the power of the image and had a basic understanding of the visualisation of music: While other as well directors had their two three TC cameras set up and taped themselves (google "Bernstein Beethovens 9th": Same time, great director - probably even better than Karajan - , but the difference is abysmal), he discovered and contracted one of the (now) most famous camera men: Michael Ballhaus, and let him do all the visual representatin of his work (as an ex photographer and profound fan of Ballhaus incredible capacity of imaginative vision and visual creation - my favorite scene is a 8+ minutes one camera shot of a conversatio between two people in Fassbinders "World on a Wire", where he moves in, out, surrounds, circumferes, changes from totale to spot, etc, for all that time w/o one single cut). Ballhaus developed photographers vision into moving pictures and showed every angle about Karajan: His genie, his ego-centrism bodering on madness, his German precision and addiction to detail, his vanity, and his art, the top German musicions doing "slave labour" literally as Karajan asked them to, condensing it all in some almost black and white pictures, long lenses giving a pictoresque density unknown before in concert cinematography.

That is what is on today as I feel down and close to burn-oput with so much stuff to take care of that I am losing the big picture (sorry, as YT only allowed 10 min when this was posted they had to split it in two parts): Beethoven (who else when you need ome assertion?), 2nd movement of th 9th, directed by Karajan, filmed by Ballhaus (and nope: It cannot be the first movement... It is here that you see the true Beethovian spirit come through, the energy and power, the discipline and the orgasmic details :) ):

Beethoven 9th Symphony Karajan 2nd Movement (1/2) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOPGnozZ-WE#normal)

Beethoven 9th Symphony Karajan 2nd Movement (2/2) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOyqfu1KD54#normal)

Enjoy (or not),

Rattler

P.S.: Because it was so nice, same combination of protagonists, same music, but grabbed at a different concert: As you can see Ballhaus - while citing himself - is easily capable of employing unlimited more more possible visual interpretations - in this case the Japanese version for *their* marked and visual customs where it is all a sum of details like a mosaique: Closer, closer, closer! (just FDR, I like the first version better as it is more abstract, though I recognize and appreciate the unique visuaization of the 2nd, Ballhaus *is* a genius!). NOTE how he has added (one!) color this time to contrast with the b/w take of before, and how he even more condensed the pictures in depth, to be able to play with rear ground reflections and create a less "strict" visual impression than in the ones above...!

A full 32 minutes with the way Ballhaus painted Karajan then (more colorful, he shows him as the benevolant god of music this time) and singers and choir (after min 14):

A Jethro Tull album on the player: Turn basses in and trebles out...

Quote
The old Rocker wore his hair too long,
wore his trouser cuffs too tight.
Unfashionable to the end --- drank his ale too light.
Death's head belt buckle --- yesterday's dreams ---
the transport caf' prophet of doom.
Ringing no change in his double-sewn seams
in his post-war-babe gloom.

Now he's too old to Rock'n'Roll but he's too young to die.

He once owned a Harley Davidson and a Triumph Bonneville.
Counted his friends in burned-out spark plugs
and prays that he always will.
But he's the last of the blue blood greaser boys
all of his mates are doing time:
married with three kids up by the ring road
sold their souls straight down the line.
And some of them own little sports cars
and meet at the tennis club do's.
For drinks on a Sunday --- work on Monday.
They've thrown away their blue suede shoes.

Now they're too old to Rock'n'Roll and they're too young to die.

So the old Rocker gets out his bike
to make a ton before he takes his leave.
Up on the A1 by Scotch Corner
just like it used to be.
And as he flies --- tears in his eyes ---
his wind-whipped words echo the final take
and he hits the trunk road doing around 120
with no room left to brake.

And he was too old to Rock'n'Roll but he was too young to die.

No, you're never too old to Rock'n'Roll if you're too young to die.


Ain´t that last sentence the truth?

Jethro Tull - Too Old To Rocknroll Too Young To Die (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdfPER5Cgm8#normal)

This one might as well go to the "Snippets and memories" thread, as it is one for me: Always listened to this song (secretly, was strictly forbidden) in my dorm at the boarding school in England to go to sleep, dont know whether listening to that kind of lyrics was healthy for a (almost) 16 yrs old...? Maybe a part of the madness that people attribute to me (and that I sometimes feel) can be traced back to listening to and batteling with those thoughts and emotions when I was young? Listening to them now after what must surely be 20+ yrs for the first time again, I find I still know them by heart and can instantly sing along, so they must be deep embedded in my setup... Shrink, where are you when I need you? :)

Anyway, it sure opened my musical horizon wide, first time I ever heard - and later understood - about the art of arrangement, nothing like this before nor after... (sorry, but this incredibly complex and fascinating piece is split in varius parts, too long for youtube, it is an Opera all by itself...).

Quote
Really don't mind if you sit this one out.
 My words but a whisper, your deafness a shout.
I may make you feel but I can't make you think.
Your sperm's in the gutter, your love's in the sink.

So you ride yourselves over the fields
and you make all your animal deals
and your wise men don't know how it feels...
to be thick as a brick.

And the sand-castle virtues are all swept away
in the tidal destruction, the moral melee.
The elastic retreat rings the close of play
as the last wave uncovers the newfangled way.
But your new shoes are worn at the heels
and your suntan does rapidly peel and
your wise men don't know how it feels...
to be thick as a brick.
 
And the love that I feel is so far away...
I'm a bad dream that I just had today...
- and you shake your head and say it's a shame.
 
Spin me back down the years and the days of my youth.
Draw the lace and black curtains and shut out the whole truth.
Spin me down the long ages, let them sing the song!
 
See there!  A son is born - and we pronounce him fit to fight.
There are black heads on his shoulders, and he pees himself in the night.
We'll make a man of him, put him to trade
teach him to play Monopoly and how to sing in the rain!
 

The Poet and the painter casting shadows on the water
as the sun plays on the infantry returning from the sea.
The do-er and the thinker, no allowance for the other,
as the failing light illuminates the mercenary's creed.
The home fire burning, the kettle almost boiling,
but the master of the house is far away.
The horses stamping, their warm breath clouding
in the sharp and frosty morning of the day.
And the poet lifts his pen,
while the soldier sheaths his sword.
 
And the youngest of the family is moving with authority,
building castles by the sea, he dares the tardy tide
to wash them all aside.

The cattle quietly grazing at the grass down by the river
where the swelling mountain water moves onward to the sea...
The builder of the castles renews the age-old purpose
and contemplates the milking girl whose offer is his need.
The young men of the household have
all gone into service and are not to be expected for a year.
The innocent young master, thoughts moving ever faster,
has formed the plan to change the man he seems.
And the poet sheaths his pen,
while the soldier lifts his sword.
 
And the oldest of the family is moving with authority,
coming from across the sea, he challenges the son,
who puts him to the run.
 
What do you do when the old man's gone - do you want to be him?  
And your real self sings the song - do you want to free him?
No one to help you get up steam,
and the whirlpool turns you `way off-beam.
 

I've come down from the upper class to mend your rotten ways...
My father was a man-of-power whom everyone obeyed...

So come on all you criminals, I've got to put you straight!
Just like I did with my old man, twenty years too late!

Your bread and water's going cold, your hair is too short and neat.
I'll judge you all and make damn sure that no-one judges me!
 
You curl your toes in fun
as you smile at everyone,
you meet the stares, you're unaware
that your doings aren't done.
And you laugh most ruthlessly
as you tell us what not to be,
but how are we supposed to see
where we should run?

I see you shuffle in the courtroom with your rings upon your fingers and
your downy little sidies and your silver-buckle shoes.
Playing at the hard case, you follow the example
of the comic-paper idol who lets you bend the rules.
 
So! Come on ye childhood heroes! Won't your rise up from the pages
of your comic-books, you super-crooks, and show us all the way.
Well!  Make your will and testament. Won't you join your local government?
We'll have Superman for president let Robin save the day.
 
You put your bet on number one and it comes up every time.
The other kids have all backed down and they put you first in line.
And so you finally ask yourself just how big you are,
and you take your place in a wiser world of bigger motor cars.
And you wonder who to call on...?
 
So!  Where the hell was Biggles when you needed him last Saturday?
And where were all the sportsmen who always pulled you through?
They're all resting down in Cornwall, writing up their memoirs,
for a paper-back edition of the Boy Scout Manual.

...

See there! A man is born, and we pronounce him fit for peace.
There's a load lifted from his shoulders with the discovery of his disease.
We'll take the child from him, put it to the test!
Teach it to be a wise man, how to fool all the rest!

...
(...there is no one responsible...

We will be geared to the average rather than the exceptional
God is an overwhelming responsibility
we walked through the maternity ward and saw 218 babies wearing nylons
cats are on the upgrade... upgrade?  Hipgrave.  Oh, Mac.)
 
LATER
In the clear white circles of morning wonder,
I take my place with the lord of the hills.
And the blue-eyed soldiers stand slightly discoloured
(in neat little rows), sporting canvas frills.

With their jock-straps pinching, they slouch to attention,
while queueing for sarnies at the office canteen.
Singing: "How's your granny" and good old Ernie,
he coughed up a tenner on a premium bond win...

The legends (worded in the ancient tribal hymn) lie cradled in the seagull's call.
And all the promises they made are ground beneath the sadist's fall...

The poet and the wise man stand behind the gun, behind the gun...
and signal for the crack of dawn: Light the sun, light the sun!
 Do you believe in the day? Do you believe in the day?

The Dawn Creation of the Kings has begun, has begun...
Soft Venus, lonely maiden, brings the ageless one, the ageless one...!
Do you believe in the day? Do you believe in the day?

The fading hero has returned to the night, to the night...
And fully pregnant with the day, wise men endorse the poet's sight...
Do you believe in the day? Do you believe in the day?

...
 
Let me tell you the tales of your life,
of your love and the cut of the knife,
the tireless oppression, the wisdom instilled, the desire to kill or be killed...

Let me sing of the losers who lie
in the street as the last bus goes by.
The pavements are empty: the gutters run red - while the fool toasts his god in the sky...!

...

So come all ye young men who are building castles, kindly state the time of the year
and join your voices in a hellish chorus, mark the precise nature of your fear.

Let me help you to pick up your dead as the sins of the father are fed
with the blood of the fools and the thoughts of the wise and from the pan under your bed.
Let me make you a present of song as the wise man breaks wind and is gone
while the fool with the hour-glass is cooking his goose and the nursery rhyme winds along.

So! Come all ye young men who are building castles, kindly state the time of the year
and join your voices in a hellish chorus, mark the precise nature of your fear.
See!  The summer lightning casts its bolts upon you and the hour of judgement draweth near.
Would you be the fool who stood in his suit of armour or the wiser man who rushes clear?

So!  Come on ye childhood heroes! Won't your rise up from the pages
of your comic-books, you super-crooks, and show us all the way.
Well!  Make your will and testament. Won't you join your local government?
We'll have Superman for president let Robin save the day.

So!  Where the hell was Biggles when you needed him last Saturday?
And where were all the sportsmen who always pulled you through?
They're all resting down in Cornwall - writing up their memoirs
for a paper-back edition of the Boy Scout Manual.

So you ride yourselves over the fields
and you make all your animal deals
and your wise men don't know how it feels...
to be thick as a brick.

I've just read all through your last post, Rattler.  Amazing lyrics,  truly.  I can just imagine you riding wild on a Harley Davidson motorbike!  I think I know some of that part of your background already.

Whoa, Jilly.  I know you said you like to listen to loud music while you drive, but if you listen to Cheryl belting out "Real Gone" while driving, there is no way you can stay at the speed limit.  The Law is going to get you for sure.  Really cool song.

Between you and Rattler, this is one very interesting post.  The diversity is staggering.  I see music I've never heard of, and some that I didn't think anyone even knew about any more.  I was out of town for about two weeks, and it is tough to catch up on this post after all that time.

Rattler, Jethro Tull has always been a favorite, but oddly, I've not got any on CD.  I have a few of his records.  Yes, vinyl.  Luckily I still have a turntable.  Thick as a Brick was really amazing.  Thanks for reviving that for me.  One of my favorites, as well as.....Aqualung, of course.  He had such an interesting and somewhat mesmerizing way of melding classical and rock.  I don't know of anyone else who used the flute in rock-and-role like he did.

You and Jilly switched gears so quickly.  It is hard to keep up.  Rod Stewart, again such great music.  My all time favorite of his is "Infatuation."  The video is pretty slick too.

Then you have Beethoven mixed in as well.  The Ninth Symphony 2nd movement is always a classical favorite.  I always enjoyed the way Beethoven utilized the french horn.  I played that years ago, all the way into college, and can still play it fairly well.  The camera man went a long way to dramatize the music being played.  My father had me watch Leonard Bernstein whenever he was on public TV.  I confess that I'm not familiar with Karajan.  Really superior music.  I could listen to it all day.

-snip- this is one very interesting post.  The diversity is staggering.  I see music I've never heard of, and some that I didn't think anyone even knew about any more. -snip- You and Jilly switched gears so quickly.  It is hard to keep up.  

Yes, this thread is becoming cult, I have heard now from friends (I have it featured it on some of my blogs) that they can hardly wait to see what has been added. Myself, just chosing a random page is fun, scuh an interesting mix from classic, over rock to hard rock, and from so different sources, but most of all: Simply great music... :)

This morning there was an intensive flameco program on TV, focussed on the dance part (baile) accompanied by great musicians (we have 4 of our 8 channels playing different music from 0530-0700 every morning, now just need to find out how to grab some to my machine), this made me listen to some of my stuff, here is what was running until now:

One of my favorite Flamenco singers, Enrique Morentes (I have mentioned him before), together with one of my favorite dancers from the ´90s, Eva "La Yerbabuena", interpreting a poem of Garcia Lorca. This must have been late ´90s, as Morente is significantly older now, and Eva has gained some 20 kilos.

(You will have to turn your volume up)

Here Eva dancing Fandangos accompanied by great singer and guitarists, pure sensuality. I will never uderstand how those great dancers manage not to fall over their outfit:

(CAUTION: If you turned your volume up before, reduce it to normal for the next two)

And, one of the most beautiful flamenco songs, by and performed by David "Dorantes" Peña on the piano: "Semblanzas de un Rio", the dancer is the famous and unique Pastora Galván.

******************************

and now for something completely different...late 80s was the birth of new-beat in Belgium....all that followed was well....a follow-up...hardbeat/italo etc..

this song was a huge clubhit in 1990, remember...this is ment to be heard LOUD, in a disco or when you feel like dancing to it...it's not the sit-still and enjoy kind of music...have some drinks...dim the lights and wiggle it  hihi

Nice, relaxed stuff between folk and country: Never heard those, remind me a bit of the "Local Hero" soundtrack, Knopflers "Going Home" (only starts after 0:30 into the vid, end of the movie: Mac comes home to the city from the cabin, and this song on the credits...

my translation of this nice song by extremaduro:

Quote
I don´t need clothes, I am dressed in the smell
from yesterday
I don´t need clothes, me dresses the taste
of honey.
I do not need to be nothing between you and me
skin.
Do not need anything from your heart
drink.

We stay near the ground
at the height of your waist
or stay near the ground
where is reflected the moon.

Check out that beautiful meadow!
Here we can tumble!
and there arrived a thousand mosquitoes
and started to pinch
us high in the ass and
we went jumping;
We were like two frogs
in search of a single pond.

And just to touch the moon will disarm it
and the light inside the pond is lit.
Like two drops of water of different clouds,
rising and falling.

We stay near the ground
at the height of your waist
or stay near the ground
where is reflected the moon.

See that beautiful bar!
We can get drunk!
it was full of friends
and they started inviting;
began to sing the Fito
and we went jumping
with the heart gone soft
we rose to the top.

And just to touch the moon
will disarm it
and the light inside the pond
is lit.
Like two drops of water
of different clouds,
rising and falling.

We stay near the ground
at the height of your waist
or stay near the ground
where you can touch the moon.

like water i am
looking for the way down
and i let myself fall
straight to your feet.
Together we are as waterfalls
that go backwards
and we rise again... upwards!

I mount downwards in your eyes
and let myself go.
And in front of me and behind me
there wont be any rule let standing
that we can not jump,
and no limit we cannot cross.

We stay near the ground
at the height of your waist
or stay near the ground
where you can touch the moon.

Funny that,  I thought  I saw him there too.  He's living a secret life working  as a counter person, and stacks the shelves on weekends.  I asked him for  date, but he said I had to wait in the queue first.    :P   So I told him he can't be that 'lonesome tonight' then, and he said no way,  he's been real busy at the 'heartbreak hotel'.   :)

Never heard this one before, but I like it. I am sure Jilly as our "Country Queen" will love it.

Maybe you want to consider cross-posting it at her forum in the 8-songs-same-artist thread?: http://hereandnowgroup-hang.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=tap&action=display&thread=11 (http://hereandnowgroup-hang.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=tap&action=display&thread=11)

Post by: Rattler on 12 October 2009, 04:45:18
Folks, I am setting up here for a very unusual and special post after this one, it is (of cause) all about music, but it is also about something else (and I hope the Forum Gods will me allow to pull it through).

As an appetizer, it has to do with radio, it has to do with musical artists, it has to do with philosophy, and: Very little is in English...:(

To prep you I want to present you with a true musician (French by birth, but many won´t believe it as he sings in Portugese, Spanish, French and English), some here I am sure cannot stand him as he has a political opinion (left), but he is from my POV not only an internationally super awarded musician but also a character, a guy that - like Sting, Bono and some others - uses his mediatic influence and economic power to alert and promote aspects of life that do not find a place in regular media and from my POV to often get forgotten to be reported and, hence, are ignored by the wider public.

I will just pressent two songs by him (there is a multitude out there, they guy is hyperactive, just look in youtube), the first one is one my favorites and the third is about my next post (that´s why I post lyrics and translation so it makes more sense).

Enjoy, or not...

(oh, and wheter you like his music or not, if you ever find him performing live in your area, go and grab a ticket! You will either make a lot of dough with reselling or have a lot of fun and probanly one of your better live concert experiences!).

For the English speaking audience 2 songs, "Mr. Bobby" (a hommage to Bob Marley) and "Raining in Paradise", both nice Reggae versions with simple but appalling lyrics and creative vids:

Manu Chao - Mr. Bobby (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2v_XY-wsjs#normal)

To the last song (and here starts the from my POV important (p)art of this post): For the non-english speakers a tanslation of the original mix of french and spanish, duly posted side by side making use of our WaT table BBCode:

NOTE: This song is actually two songs, and as the guy is a bit unstable, live he never sticks to the lyrics exactly, so the vid lyrics may vary (especiall with the first part "La Primavera") and my translations as well accordingly. Also did not find the two songs in one consistent set-up, so post them separatedly...

NOTE2: This is a pun in Spanish: "Que horas son" (What time is it?) sounds almost excatly as " Corazón" ("Heart", int this context "Love" or "Sweetheart"; the spanish text below always says "hora" where it should be "horas" (plural), but I was to lazy to add the "s" in all the lines...)

Quote
¿Que hora son mi corazón ?
¿Que hora son mi corazón ?
¿Que hora son mi corazón ?
¿Que hora son mi corazón ?
¿Que hora son en Inglaterra ?
¿Que hora son en Gibraltar ?
¿Que hora son allá en Fisterra ?
¿Que hora son hey ByebyeBom ?
¿Que hora son la vida entera ?
¿Que hora son en el Japón ?
¿Que hora son en Mozambique ?
¿Que hora son en Washington ?
Nos engañaron Byebyebom !
Nos engañaron con la primavera !
Nos engañaron Bye Bye Bom !
What time is my heart?
What time is it my love?
What time is it my love?
What time is it my love?
What time is it in England?
What time is it in Gibraltar?
What time is it back in Finisterre?
What time is it? Hey Bye bye Bom! (another pun, with "Baby Boom")
How many hours has a lifetime?
What time is it in Japan?
What time is it in Mozambique?
What time is it in Washington?
Bye bye bom, they tricked us!
We were deceived about spring!
We were deceived about Bye Bye Bom!
BOMBALA BOMBALA BOMBALA.
BOMBALA BOMBALA BOMBALA.
BOMBALA BOMBALA BOMBALA.

¿Que hora son mi corazón/What time is it, my sweetheart? (repeated til cut)


Manu Chao, "La Primavera", Sasquatch Festival 2007 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZN2i7M1IBU#normal)

Part two: NOTE "me gusta" = "I find to my liking" in English; Spanish is much more subtle, the English "to like" has many words in Spanish, so it is the closest translation I could find, to make it sensible you might as well say "I fancy/like/love/desire", make your choice. I used the machine translation, though a Spanish speaker would probably discuss it ("fancy" rather than "like")

That's great koen,  I saw that.   :)

Rattler,  the lyrics are so interesting on those songs,  thanks for the translation.  It amazes me just what is in the mind of some musicians.  Music is a good outlet for those thoughts.


Title: Radio La Colifata
Post by: Rattler on 13 October 2009, 09:48:13
Sorry for this upcoming *looong* post but it is about something I really want to share:

Following up on my post about Manu Chao, today I will present a series of musical snippets that do not exactly qualify as "songs" as such. They are part of something I have been listening to for the last three days since I ran into the film "LT22 Radio La Colifata", transmitted on Spanish television last Friday night.

I have done a lot of research in the area of videos (in the hope of mybe finding the whole film), but, I could only find snippets and some .mp3s, but I hopow you will bear with me if this time not all vids here are plain straightforward songs (many are, though).

Radio La Colifata is a radio station that for the last 18 years has been transmitting from the hospital "La Borda" in Buenos Aires, Argentina, every Saturday afternoon for 4 hours.

This station has about 12 million listeners all over the world, as it´s broadcasts are - in short snippets - retransmitted by many other stations, the thing that makes LT22 special is that it is exclusively run by the interns and patients of this psychiatric hospital.

"Colifa" means "crazy/looney", and the patients chose the name for their station themselves. From report of ABC Australia:

Quote
A radio station in a mental hospital in Argentina shows that giving madness a voice can be the best therapy. When the local soccer heroes Bocca Juniors play at home in Buenos Aires the entire crowd goes berserk.

The only sane voice in the stadium comes from a reporter for the city's most unusual radio station - run entirely by inmates of the local psychiatric hospital. Radio Colifata has been such a success that sections are now re-broadcast on a commercial radio station to over one million listeners. Their freshness and lack of constraint has won over the public and prejudice against the institution has evaporated. As Radio Colifata broadcasts from the grounds of the asylum, patients line up to air their frank views. These would-be dj's suffered breakdowns after losing their jobs, or their marriages collapsed. But Borda allows them to talk. This light piece has a deep message: madness is something we all have to accept without prejudice. Maybe the station's boss will remember that when he finds out that one of the patients is quietly stealing his car!



A (long) report from the ´90´s sufficiently in English -and with some music -  to be of interest here:

Loony Radio - Argentina (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-G6JvYIpIU#noexternalembed-normal)

If you want it short, here an ad that "Aquarius" recorded with them:

Quote
"El mundo esta loco" (the world is crazy) - "No, el ser human es extraordinario!" (No, the human being is extraoridary!)



Aquarius Anuncio 2008 Colifata (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTvfVCgBPUs#normal)

Now, many well known artists support the project which is probably forced to close down soon due to the pressures of the government and the Kirchners who do not really like to hear people freely and without restraints discussing their corruption and failures, to just name one theme that the inmates recur to often. Manu Chao, especially, has devoted a lot of money and personal involvement with the station and the patients. He visits them frequently, singing with and for them:

manu chao la colifata (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4O6w3jbaTc#normal)

He prepared a short video clip about and with them, made a big concert that featured them all on stage, and paid for the film that was triggering my post. Last, his latest album "Viva La Colifata!" is out since August, to freely download from "Radio La Colifatas" website on the idea that anybody might pay what he feel it is worth, the money wil go to the hospital. The album is a series of compositions that take original transmissions and edits them into interesting and sometimes deeply disturbing songs: To me it seems the "crazies" somteimes have a way deeper insight into the world´s mysteries than the "normals"...

Here the short song that he made with the patients, he mixed his music with the statements of the patients about their daily life there and his vido team transferred them into pictures:

mAnU chAo - radio la colifata (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lu4KhREyMfI#normal)

The documental http://www.bausanfilms.com/fichas_detalle_eng.asp?idIdioma=3&idFicha=425&idSeccion=50&Title=LT22%20RADIO%20LA%20COLIFATA (http://www.bausanfilms.com/fichas_detalle_eng.asp?idIdioma=3&idFicha=425&idSeccion=50&Title=LT22%20RADIO%20LA%20COLIFATA) is absolutely moving and impacting to see, it is on a high cineomatographic level as "Buena Vista Social CLub" by Wenders. Like this one it has everything, great music and deep philosophy, tells stories of life, craziness and sanity, shows the daily life of the patients, shows them how they practice for their radio shows and for the concert in front of 20.000 that the film culminates in.

An example: Short snippet of Ed and Manu practicing for Ed´s appearance on stage for "Por el Suelo", then another short snippet of the actual appearance:

From the film I also found a series of snippets, for the trailers, each under a minute, I will post some of them here without comments. Remains to say that you can dl the CD and support La Colifata on their website (plenty of nice vids also on that site): http://www.vivalacolifata.org/http://www.vivalacolifata.org/ (http://www.vivalacolifata.org/http://www.vivalacolifata.org/)

Viva La Colifata! Thanks to people that have become famous and still are compromising themselves for the important stuff on this planet!

Wow! Giving me the creeps and goose bups all over, I can remember every line she sings! Anne Clark! I somehow thought she had been dead long ago, seems (luckily) not to be the case, one of my favorite lyrics musicians (Sleeper in Metropolis? Wallies? Anyone?!)!

Thanks for reminding me, will search my vinyl stuff for all the stuff I have by her (everything 80´s for sure, those poems!) and compile something, she DESERVES it!

Okies. 2nd try now (but really, the air is out a bit, it is different to post spontaneously from a gut feeling than posting in a orchestrated re-make):

Finall listened to all my stuff, here goes my post:

Should go to memories and snippets, really: Can you imagine? THIS WAS ME ONCE (and, what irony, really *loved* the song, then, in ´83 (?)! Too much coke, probably...):

Quote
As a sleeper in metropolis...

You are insignificance,
dreams become entangled in the system.

Environment moves over the sleeper:

Conditioned air,
conditions sedated breathing...

The sensation of viscose
sheets on naked flesh
Soft and warm...
But lonesome in the
blackened ocean of night...

Confined in the helpless safety
of desires and dreams
We fight our insignificance:
The harder we fight
The higher the wall!

Outside the cancerous city spreads
Like an illness.

It's symptoms:
In cars that cruise to inevitable destinations,
tailed by the silent spotlights of a society created paranoia

No alternative could grow where love cannot take root.

No shadows will replace the warmth of your contact!

Love is dead in metropolis...

All contact through glove or partition, what a waste!

The City: A wasting disease.



LIKE ALMOST ALL YOUTUBE STUFF RECENTLY: Basses IN, trebles OUT!

Anne Clark Sleeper in Metropolis (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_rEr6X9YIE#normal)

Let´s pas the "Wallies" (great song, but not what I am listening to right now), and go on with another one:

Maybe you younger guys/gals don´t remember, but during the Cold War there was a general feeling of imminent destruction looming behind the horizon, 7 minutes away, that never left you (at least in Germany, who was destined to burn and sacrifice itself in order to save the Free World...), a heavy but ignored weight on your back, always present, especially when you were serving (we served *to prevent* war, not to fight it, iin our books we had 16 minutes of survival)...

I recall this song summing it up just perfectly, and I recall that I even at that time realized it was summing it up perfectly. Even after S11, I do not hope any of you young guys will ever feel something like this again, it marks you forever:

Quote
What will it matter then,
when the sky's not blue but blazing red,
The fact that I simply love you?

When all our dreams lay deformed and dead
we'll be two radioactive dancers
spinning in different directions...
and my love for you will be reduced to powder.

The screams will perform louder and louder,
your marble flesh will soon be raw and burning,
and kissing will reduce my lips to a pulp...

Hideous creatures will return from the underground.
And the fact the I love you
Will die.

You don't have to sleep to see mightmares...!

Just hold me close,
then closer still,
And you'll feel the probabilities pulling us apart...

Don´t know how she (or her musicians) did it, but everytime I listen to it, a poem comes to my mind in whatever language I am thinking at the time...

And, if you look at it closely, there is nothing special about the tune, many better out there, but.... it´s this one that creates poems in my mind...!?

Thanks for all that music, Rattler!  Just great.  The Manu Chao, seems like such an interesting group of people.  That Indian music is very relaxing isn't it?  I must admit I never really listen to that kind of music,  I think I just heard too much of it as a kid and now the interest is gone,  or maybe it never was there.  Love the lyrics in the song too.

For today: Bruce Springsteen -

Thanks for the dedication, and the turn on Rattler. In turn I give you my favorite from the Dead...Yes, I am a Deadhead! Coming of age in the SF Bay Area, during the 60's & 70's it was inevitable.

Grateful Dead - Ripple (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVdTQ3OPtGY#normal)


If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,
Would you hear my voice come thru the music,
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

Its a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,
Perhaps theyre better left unsung.
I dont know, dont really care
Let there be songs to fill the air.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,
If your cup is full may it be again,
Let it be known there is a fountain,
That was not made by the hands of men.

There is a road, no simple highway,
Between the dawn and the dark of night,
And if you go no one may follow,
That path is for your steps alone.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

But if you fall you fall alone,
If you should stand then whos to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home.

La dee da da da, la da da da da, da da da, da da, da da da da da
La da da da, la da da, da da, la da da da, la da, da da

Thx FacMan, I also like the Deads, and the lyrics are touching!

Now, one for Henk, we have not mentioned many Dutch great Bands, my personal favorite lately has been "De Phazz" with their cool relaxed mix of Street Jazz and Dance Floor Chill:

de phazz - Cut The Jazz (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rl67uC5CWQ#normal)

Their best known probably is "No Jive":

De Phazz: No jive (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5MM2CuJSI8#noexternalembed-normal)

And another one, trance piece:

Quote
birth is a label of end. end is a label of beginning.
beginning is a label of hope. hope is a label of future.
future is a label of past. past is a label of history.
history is not a label of recall but of words.
words are a label of religion.

religion is a label of god. god is a label of power.
power is a label of submission. submission is a label of sacrifice.
sacrifice is a label of an altar. an altar is a label of three.
three is a label of numbers. numbers are a label of eternity.

eternity is a label of limits of imagination.
time is a label of appearance. appearance is a label of light.
shine is a label of knowledge. shine is a label of information.
a line is a label of an extended bow. an arrow is a label of a bow.

the bow is the power of an arrow. a label is a label of a label.
life is a label of death. imagination is a label what a blind person believes in.
a blind person is label of a painter. a painting is a label of an optical event.
an event is a label of a moment. a moment is a label of any time.

time is a label of beauty. beauty is a label of lies.
lies are a label of myth. myth is a label of survival.
survival is a label of hunger. hunger is a label of love.
love is label silence. silence is a label of listening.

A FLOWER IS A LABEL OF A ROSE. A ROSE IS A LABEL OF CULTURAL NATURE.
A ROSE IS AN ANTIROMANTICAL MIMESIS.
ROSES COME FROM WHERE WE WILL NEVER GO TO.

clouds are a label of invisible stars. stars are a label of sun.
sky is a label of heaven. a mirror is a label of a silent person.
a silent person is a contradiction.

Another one I had forgotten for some time: Joe Jackson, with his almost Gershwin like arrangements somewhere between New Wave, Rock and Jazz and his unique voice:

Quote
Take your mind back - I dont know when
Sometime when it always seemed
To be just us and them
Girls that wore pink
And boys that wore blue
Boys that always grew up better men
Than me and you

Whats a man now - whats a man mean
Is he rough or is he rugged
Is he cultural and clean
Now its all change - its got to change more
cause we think its getting better
But nobodys really sure

And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are

See the nice boys - dancing in pairs
Golden earring golden tan
Blow-wave in the hair
Sure theyre all straight - straight as a line
All the gays are macho
Cant you see their leather shine

You dont want to sound dumb - dont want to offend
So dont call me a faggot
Not unless you are a friend
Then if youre tall and handsome and strong
You can wear the uniform and I could play along

And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are

Time to get scared - time to change plan
Dont know how to treat a lady
Dont know how to be a man
Time to admit - what you call defeat
cause theres women running past you now
And you just drag your feet

Man makes a gun - man goes to war
Man can kill and man can drink
And man can take a whore
Kill all the blacks - kill all the reds
And if theres war between the sexes
Then therell be no people left

And so it goes - go round again
But now and then we wonder who the real men are

Nice, romantic songs are great when you are in love.. :) (and the "No Quitter" is a really nice vid :) ).

The one I really liked of her was the "That don´t impress me much" tune, but then, the Austen Girls version also exists, and external embedded is not disabled :) :

Austen Girls - That don't impress me much (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaWVF3f8NAs#normal)

I liked the way the guy made the video:

Quote
I'm one of those person who loves to sing in the shower, last weekend I was enjoying a nice bath when this song pop up in my head and images of these movies wouldn't leave me alone, I just knew that I had to make a fanvid with it.

Since the song is pretty upbeat I wanted to make a fun video, I had so much fun while I was doing it, I hope you like it!

No Dashing Heroes this time! But some of these guys sure are charming in their own way.

The Austen Girls and their suitors are:
- Lizzy and Mr. Collins (je je could you picture him as a rocket scientist ^.^)
- Emma and Frank Churchill (that devious smile...)
- Catherine Morland and John Thorpe
- Anne Elliot and Mr. Elliot
- Emma and Frank Churchill (again)
- Marianne and Willoughby (I had to play with the clips because unlike the others, she was in love with him)
- Fanny and Henry Crawford

U2 360 TOUR OPENING NIGHT BARCELONA (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsSASew6T64#normal)

and I got FREE tickets for 'Sinners Day' I reported on earlier  :champ:

Quote
The Psychedelic Furs cancelled their European tour and will be replaced by the British punk funk band the GANG OF FOUR.
Studio Brussel reunites the Kings of New Wave and Punk on the brand new Sinner’s Day Festival.

On All Saints’ Day we should revive the memories of our beloved, passed-away relatives… But this year, Sunday 1 November 2009, a bunch of alive and kicking myths and legends from the 80’s will be reunited in the Hasselt Ethias Arena.
What do you think about the cult band Bollock Brothers, or Anne Clark, the New Wave poet, Gary - Are Friends Electric- Numan, Lydia Lunch & The Big Sexy Noise, The English Synth-pop group The Human League, You do know ‘Don’tyou want me’, ‘Human’ and ‘Being Boiled’ and, of course, our own icons: The Neon Judgement and the most revolutionary Belgian band ever: Front 242!
We also welcome Peter Hook from New Order and Joy Division and Andy Rourke from the Smiths as DJ's. ... we know you will be impressed.
This scene is much more than music, so don’t forget to visit the extended Camden Market on Sinner’s Day. The market was name after the legendary London quarter where all new wavers bought their t-shirts and music.

Oh, before we forget: there is this exclusive Sinner’s Day Photo Exhibition with unique images of famous 80’s artists. [url=http://www.newwavephotos.com]www.newwavephotos.com[/url] ([url]http://www.newwavephotos.com[/url]).

Well, I have chosen today the two songs I want to hear at my funeral:

First, Pacelbels Canon in D, and (as I think it is always interpreted too slow today, it is a piece that should animate IMHO) in a fast - Rattler Life - version like this ones:

Pachelbel - Canon Rock (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSkwqRGiKpQ#normal)

There exists also a nice pure brass version by "Canadian Brass", fast enough to be animating, formal enough to not disturb a funeral:

Canadian Brass "Pachelbel Canon" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlkRI-YmT_E#normal)

And then, of cause, on the way out or when (which here in Spain would probably be my fate) they go distribute my ash in the sea (they don´t allow sea burials of the entire body anmore - for "hygienic" reasons... Anybody has an idea how many dead fish and bodies float in the med at any given moment?! - ), the Adagio in G Minor by Tomás Albinoni (which actually was not by him, but written by Remo Giazotto over fragments by Abinoni, and published 1958), full 9 minutes to mourn and cry for my non existing agnostic soul :)

Koen,
  The interesting part of this post is the new stuff I pick up.  Kathy's Song by Apoptygma Berzerk is very nice.  I was not aware of the band, and now I am.  I listened to a few of their other songs, Shadow being a good one too.  There does seem to be a pretty strong influence from groups like Depeche Mode, especially evident in that song.  Sometimes Techo just hits the spot.

Glad you enjoyed it, though, here the a bit quicker on the reward version of this great song/great artist, music starts straight away (As so often with youtube , turn Basses IN, raise volume to a level where your ears do not censor the lack of accoustic quality):

Oh, Jilly, thanks!

Rattler

P. S. : Mine were always worth it (after having hit 35)...


...with muzak along those lines - and this is the most serious take I can take, heart-felt, as a photo journo out on duty and my true love at home...

Turn volume well (but well!: MAX if you arei n love over distance!!!) up. While it is an (realitvely) unknown German Band, as an English speaker I am sure you will get the gist... (and don´t ever ask me how many times I have sung it on the sometimes endless motorways on this planet listening to the radio  in my car, waiting for nothing more than to make it home, with 3 month to go... and then, sometimes only a day, or in breajs only a month - sacred month! -  at home before having to  leave again...)

...and my wife not evein knowing what I was talking about... ("... but isn´t this just the way we live??...").

Though, I always called her on my mobile - whatever hour - and let her listen when it was on the radio in my van on the road, w/o verbal comment, trying to communicate what I felt being looooong time from home.

I believe it always annoyed her; different cultures or the man/woman thingy, I guess...:

Anyway, here the lyrics that I have lived exactly:

Quote
i spent the whole night long
on my hotel-phone
a letter's too long
don't you know

we talked we laughed
and sighed
kissing the air
said good-bye
i m never the first to
hang-up the phone

i d rather kiss instead
but isn't this just the way we live?

I might be kissing the sheets
i might be hugging the pillow
all night long
but i don't mind
cause i have you on my mind
i might be kissing the sheets
i might be hugging the pillow
all night long
but i don't mind
'cause i have you on my mind
all night long
i don't mind
'cause i'll kiss in time

it's time my train has arrived
i take a slow step inside
how time has passed by
don't you konw
we only had a day
we say hello
who can't stay
i'm glad we had this
day anyway
we'd rather kiss instead

but isn't this just the way we live?

I might be kissing the sheets
i might be hugging the pillow
all night long
but i don't mind
cause i have you on my mind
i might be kissing the sheets
i might be hugging the pillow
all night long
but i don't mind
'cause i have you on my mind
all night long
i don't mind
'cause i have you on my mind

Who is the world´s best drummer? Employing his set as one *melody* instrument, and not for rhythm? Precision his 2nd name?

Right!

...and if you mix him with one of the great funky keyboarders, you come up with what I listened to this morning at 0330J and which made me lose whatever remnants of sleepiness left over at this - even for me - early hour (had to get  up a bit early as I had promised BLU it´s detailled OOB in the MBX, a 4 hours job...) ... :)

Of cause, it helps if you either like Jazz or Funk (or, preferred, both), and I had the studio version on, better, IMHO, but this gives the idea:

George Duke-Band, "Red Baron", live 1998 Montreux Jazzfestiva

Billy Cobham - drums !!!!!!
George Duke - keyboards !!!!
Carl Orr - guitar !!!
Stefan Rademacher - bass !!!!

Guests:
Les McCan keyboards
Keith Anderson alto sax !!!
Gonzalo Rubalcaba keyboards

Red Baron (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCcooFs5JlA#normal)

Ohg, in case you are not so sure about Bill Cobham, I recommend listening to this for 3 minutes (and now he is old!):

Billy Cobham - Columbus Drum Daze 2007 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7P3c5cEjWw#noexternalembed-normal)


Or this one, a bit younger and with small equipment, all precision, speed and melody, some incredible riffs and breaks, and perfect coordination (*interpretation*, actually!) with the rest of the band (Jazz not Funk, though, still probably the best of these exhibits)... :

Herbie Hancock - Piano
Ron Carter - Bass
Billy Cobham - Drums

Billy Cobham Solo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYBTBv_h4CQ#normal)

Well, let me answer with another song, one that Jilly might like?

Surely it is one one that has a very male take on things (both from lyrics and from music), a compromise most women never will undestand even if they once swore to it... I do not know wheter every man thinks like that (though what I see at least basically seems to supprot that idea), but when I commit I commit that way:

squirm and go running when the "...we are out of the money..." or the "...unhappy together..." challenge comes up (which would actually exactly be the moment their input would be required, in fact...  hdbng)

I think that Link is just a sign of the times, Rattler.   People stay together for financial reasons?  Yes, some do, it's been that way for a long time,  but more so in these hard financial times.  Is it the cowards way out?  Yes,  definitely.

I think the other main reason people stay together when the love is not there, is for their kids sake.  I personally don't think they are doing their kids any favors,  but who am I to judge?  So many unhappy unions around, it's just unreal.

This reminds me of the song:  It's got to be perfect:

It's got to be perfect (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtQYUgTD6qM#normal)

Lyrics:

(This time it's gonna be perfect...)
I don't want half-hearted love affairs
I need someone who really cares
Life is too short to play silly games
I promise myself I won't do that again
REFRAIN I:
It's got to be perfect
It's got to be worth it
Too many people take second best
But I won't take anything less
It's got to be perfect
REFRAIN II:
Young hearts are foolish
They make such mistakes
They're much too eager to give their love away
Well I've been foolish too many times
Now I'm determined I'm gonna get it right
(Repeat Refrain I)
CODA:
(It's got to be ...)
You better think about it
It's got to be perfect, yeah yeah
(It's got ...)
The kind that will stand the test of time, yeah
(Too many ...)
But I won't take anything less
(It's got to be perfect)

@ Jilly: I do not - while I am all for illusion and still believe in *true* love whatever that means - think this is my tune, for me it does *not* have to be perfect, but carried along by sentiment and respect, that´s basic, but also enough. *Nobody* can make anybody else happy, the only thing he/she might be able to achieve is to not make the other unhappy. In this sense, I stick with my earlier song:

Quote
.snip-
Happy together, unhappy together
And won't it be fine.


If it is expected to have to be "perfect" it is bound to fail, IMHO (and, yes. this is my excuse for future failure :) )...

@ FACman: This one still - after so many years - makes my skin crawl...

What a beautiful song and arrangement!

Nothing is ever perfect,  I know that, Rattler.  It's just a song.  But I think it says a lot anyway.  'It's got to be worth it'.

Actually, you know something,   I think you are right in that, no one else can make us happy,  that has to come from within, from us.  I think what would make me happy in particular,  is just 'finding myself' again.  I know that sounds like a  cliché, but it's true in some ways.  I need to travel and see more of the world,  I need to know what it is exactly that I want out of this life, what it is that I'm looking for.  I don't think jumping from relationship to relationship is the answer however.

Sky, thx for sharing, reina!

Maybe you can help solving the mystery? Is this "lady" a woman or a man (or both)?

Same question applies here:

Quote
Like a believer
We are out to find
Like a believer
We are living our minds
Like a believer
We don't waste any time
Like a believer
We stand our ground

I just can't understand this
Why it's so hard
To take each other by the hand and
And say that I love you
Like a believer
We can't let this go
No more war
No more war no more war
Just say that I love you

This world is in trouble
We got to find a way
To come together
And make a better way
I can't understand this
No

Troubled the world
There's no time for children
And their hearts
Just look at their eyes
Can't you see you're tearing
Them apart
So I ask you believe us
Don't waste any time
Let's stay together and
Save our world

I just can't understand this
Why it's so hard
To take each other by the hand and
And say that I love you
Like a believer
We can't let this go
No more war
No more war no more war
Just say that I love you

I just can't understand this
No

Sure? In a Spanish TV show she/he was a moment not centered when riding a mechanic bull and displayed an interesting "bulge" in her/his panties... And, confronted with that, he/she commented she had both male and female genitals... which would make him/her a Hermaphrodite.

Hadn´t know the lady yet, but its a quite impressive song! I did some research, and came up with this unplugged version which for me makes more sense than the first vid, as the voice dominates over the pictures, even though unedited it is different from what the sound engineer´s machines magic does:

Reminds me a bit of Joni Mitchells "Both sides now" from ´70:

Quote
Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons ev'rywhere
I've looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As ev'ry fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way

But now it's just another show
You leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know
Don't give yourself away

I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say "I love you" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living ev'ry day

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all...

@ FACman: I also always put the both in the same cupboard, but just when I commented Sky´s song I first time realized how different they really are. This said, the "Foprever young" bit is the one that touches home nowadays with me... :)

@ Sky: We have a saying in Germany: "Children and Drunk state the truth", so maybe you want to think about reflecting on how much of that what you said and now repent is true to the point that it matters, for you or others?

Personally, I have learned over the years to accept that when any of us between my love an me said something really gross, then this was the beginning of the end, actually 100% in hindisght, the point when the respect is not really there anymore.

This said, nothing Rock´n Roll won´t cure on the long run: "When the situation is out of control then it´s time to rock and roll!"

Status quo-Roll Over Beethoven (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMAb9SU6jzc#normal)

And how would you know it is outta control? Well, there are indicators:

Quote
goodbye desperado
if they hadn't sucked out all the poison from your veins you'd be dead by now
too late frida kahlo
you could have the power of the phoenix and the flame if you knew just how

come the hour
come the mantra
repeat in defeat with the pots and the pans
walk away
walk on water
they're young then they're old then they don't give a damn

yeah but you
you're out of control
your babies are changing
you're out of control

sleepless situation
shaken by the clatter of the clinking on the bars of your private jail
twisted ultimatum
searching for a lifeline or a band aid for your sins in the morning mail

tow the line
floating islands
they're here and they're now but they're oceans away
tie them down
baby lions
you'll bleed and you'll plead and you'll beg them to stay

yeah but you
you're out of control
your babies are changing
you're out of control

don't be afraid now
your cover is blown
don't shed a tear now
your babies are grown

Gorecki Symphony No. 3 "Sorrowful Songs" - Lento e Largo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miLV0o4AhE4#normal)

Symphony No. 3, Op. 36, also known as the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs (Polish: Symfonia pie?ni ?a?osnych), is a symphony in three movements composed by Henryk Górecki in Katowice, Poland, between October and December 1976. The work is indicative of the transition between Górecki's dissonant earlier manner and his more tonal later style.

A solo soprano sings a different Polish text in each of the three movements. The first is a 15th-century Polish lament of Mary, mother of Jesus, the second a message written on the wall of a Gestapo cell during World War II, and the third a Silesian folk song of mother searching for son killed in the Silesian uprisings. The first and third movements are written from the perspective of a parent who has lost a child, and the second movement from that of a child separated from a parent. The dominant themes of the symphony are motherhood and separation through war.

Until 1992, Górecki was known only to connoisseurs, primarily as one of several composers responsible for the postwar Polish music renaissance. That year, Elektra-Nonesuch released a recording of the 15-year-old symphony that topped the classical charts in Britain and the United States. It has now sold more than a million copies, vastly exceeding the expected lifetime sales of a typical symphonic recording by a 20th-century composer. This success, however, has failed to generate interest in Górecki's other works.

Koen, this is truly impressive (I *love* the singer and am a fan for years), this is the 2nd movment then? And performed in Auschwitz itself? The video goes well with it, anybody knows who did it?

JFTR, while Isabel Bayrakdarian (one of the really "great" voices, she is Armenian/Canadian and born in Lebanon, an interesting mix in musicians every time) is indeed a Soprano, she performs in Alto mode here, probably because she loves to dedicate herself to this kind of mix music where the voce is not totally definded but the emotions transported matter.

Here one more of her, on the same line, but a bit more "Soprano", at least partially, when she performs "Dle Yaman" by Komitas Vardapet.

Komitas Vardapet (1869-1935) was a composer, musicologist and the founder of modern Armenian classic music. He survived the 1915 Genocide, but everybody he loved died in it and he never recovered from the emotional shock, leaving him to die in a psychiatric clinic.

frenar el ritmo, ir muy lento, más lento. / slow the pace and go slowly, more slowly still.

Ser delicado y esperar, / be sensitive and wait
dame tiempo para darte / give me time to give to you

Si quieres un poco de mí,  / If you want a bit of me
dame paciencia y verás / give me patience and you will see
será mejor que andar corriendo, / it is better than to hurry

Hi everybody again. I see the mexijamerican bird has landed over here  hatsoff : Realyy I am so busy with work and living. Yesterday I just went to Granada for 2 hours for walking by the Alhambra, sitting on her side with sun in my face and smoking a couple fags hearing the sound of the river.

I am still on divorcing process (neverending story). Met a girl I am good with simply talking and walking, I just want this now, because pleasures of the flesh use to disturb my thoughts and I don´t want it now. The easy way is just "bed", but that´s easy in other situations and at this moment I am tired of that, I need to live the other side of the coin: travelling, having nice conversations, joining my work as much as possible...

So, excuse me all my friends over here for being so distanced in time and posting, but life is only lived once.

Here I song after this brief moment of confession.

-snip- Yesterday I just went to Granada for 2 hours for walking by the Alhambra, sitting on her side with sun in my face and smoking a couple fags hearing the sound of the river.


Never been there, but I know the feeling: Just finished 2 hrs on a rock at the seaside, and while I can tell me "Wow, this thingy has been here 300 Million years" and can be impressed by the thought, the Alhambra probably would have the same effect with it´s age, even if not counted in millions of years...

So, you are a smoker? You know, of cause, that it is *really* bad for your health and it doesnt even give you the spliff advantage you would have when enjoying the sun that way and loc... :)

I am still on divorcing process (neverending story).


I am sure it feels like it now, my "Indian Promise"!: In 10 yrs you won´t say that about it.. :)

Met a girl I am good with simply talking and walking, I just want this now, because pleasures of the flesh use to disturb my thoughts and I don´t want it now. The easy way is just "bed", but that´s easy in other situations and at this moment I am tired of that, I need to live the other side of the coin: travelling, having nice conversations, joining my work as much as possible...


Well, allow me a moment of un-spanish and very German directness/frankness: Looks you are getting there! The song I posted last night might be serving as a guidance, bed is only important from my POV if it does *NOT* work, apart from this all other is more of value.

Well, last night I lived one of my *superior* TV events in Spain: "Buenafuente" and the "Gran Wyoming" swapped programs for this day...

To put this into perspective, it would be the same thing in the US if "Letterman" swapped program moderation with "Ophra", in Germany it would be "Harald Schmidt" swapping with "Dieter Hildebrand"... Got me up all night until 0200 local just to see it, both are of my favorite moderators.

If this had been meant to be a contest, Gran Wyoming won by a long way: He not only did the obligatory "monologue" at the start of the show better than BFN, he also invited his friend (and my personal Flamenco-Blues Guitar God) Raimundo Amador, and at the end of the show perofrmed with him and the BFN band some swwwweeeeeet Rock´n Roll...

Check out the not-so-young guy announcing and singing (The Gran Wyoming, want to see Letterman doing something along!  hihi) and the sweet jamming guitar of (also now old) Raimundo Amador... :champ: ... even if I can only find it as excerpt, well worth listening, THAT IS JAMMING!... Oldies, go! A por ellos!  hatsoff (turn volume well up and start dancing!):

(Almost) missed it:

Today, 16 yrs ago, for me was an almost unbelievable moment, my life literally stopped for a sec: You somehow always expect your parents/mentors to die before you, but not really your older (soul?) brother to die before your parents.

Well, DEC 4, 16 yrs ago FZ died from his long ignored (this was the therapy in those days) prostate cancer...  :cry:

The only *true* genious I ever have had the chance to see live (and, from experience, I am comparing this to Hendrix, CCR, ELP, ZZ Top, Metallica, Jethro Tull, Queen, Weather Report and all variations of the clan around Romantic Warrior, including Paco de Lucia, he himself another genious)...

I just hope he has the same ideas as Solideo (I doubt it, he was agnostic in every way)  and is currently just regrouping, this world is missing him!

In his memory a little tribute, also to give some more insights on this exceptional musician, composer, personallity and character...

• At age 22, his first ever TV appearance - on the Steve Allan Show 1962, Vietnam and hippies were still years out (I have records - vinyl - here with his first r+r sounds when he was 15 but haven´t digitized them yet so cannot share what would well be worht it). Here part one and two (of 4) of this event, youtoube the others yourself if you are becoming intrigued... (the 2nd actually shows him "playing" the bicycycle and shows his mind set:

• And then, one of his last TV apperances, 1993 on the NBX "Today Show" (the last you will find under "related" if you´re interested, it is too sad so I won´t post it):

• ...and then, of cause, anything else would make no sense, a little music of this genious I listened to (tape recorder that time) on my plane when nothing was on (probably dedicated especially to Canadians):

In case I was not really clear (hindsight!), but just FTR: Zappa was *not* my brother. (Indeed, I lost an older brother, but he died before I was even born...)

My reference here and the intent of my post was to explain my feelings 16yrs ago, Zappa is my generation indeed, but a bit older, and what he sang/performed/directed hit my personal feelings rigth on, so I would consider him a "soul" brother if at all aquainted.

Sorry for any confusion,

Ok, ans while it´s easy to be good on Vivaldi, now that indeed is a Soprano of the rare kind, I have been following her for years (the Salieri and - as mentioned - the great Vivaldi stuff).

Compare her "Casta Diva" to The Callas and you will see (hear!) - ignore the years difference and the fact that today everything is taken slower and more bass pronounced and generally more sophisticated orchestra wise - that astounding subtlety of her voice and coloration, so unique you almost cannot compare the two, but well worth the heritage:

@ Solideo:

As you can imagine with my hang for "weird" music and for hard rock I much appreciate any Celtic stuff being incorportated into Hard Rock (seems to be a notion generally lately, celtic is "en vogue"!?) did not know the band "ELUVEITIE", thx for sharing!

OTOH, "Sirenia" I have come across before, for me they (she?) are/is a "fantasma", a clone, great vid and spectacular, but kind of like "casting bands now have reached hard rock sector"... It is flat IMHO and lacking the "feeling" that I attribute personally to the generic hard rockers (though I rarely share it though I can), cannot describe it better, maybe I am wrong, but thats my take: Hard ROckers that touch me are basically Amateurs, in the best sense of the word...

FOr example, check out this Amateur Tyrolian Folk Music Band and the Black Metal they produce!:

ultra brutal death metal band (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLyTrsk1Ey8#normal)




 :D



Calm down, just joking, but you get the idea: There is indeed a Tyrolian Folk Band out there that made some crazy hardcore metal tunes out of Johann Strauss, "Blue Danube" etc., cannot seem to find traces on utube though... I just stumbled over this vid by searching for the others, happened to like it  ;D Very creative the guy who produced it!  :champ:

Gianluca Grignani - Mi Historia Entre Tus Dedos (1995) [Subtittled in English]


I like that one a lot also, there also is the Italian version out there if I recall right.

Now, as we are talking Amateurs and always listening to the same music, lets change that for a sec and go poking on what more is out there, hardly recognized by the masses.

In this endeavour I stumbled over a true gem, a Romanian singer - so badly produced that it really becomes good again - that has me deeply impressed with his capacity to be laughing about himself, his immense productivity with obviously a low budget (there are literally hundreds of vids by now) and his intensity in focusing on three genres: Women and me, Rap, and poetry. While he only has a few hits on his many videos, I am sure, starting with this post, this will change soon and he will become a well deserved cult figure. Ladies and Gentlemen, Nicolae Guta:

Fat, with a mustache (that in his newer productions is gone) and a crazy hat, he has an almost southern med quality to him, sometimes he looks Andalus, sometimes more Turkish, which obviously helps in seducing the girls, as can be seen here in the first vid I ever saw of him (but which is of his later, more professional productions). While I do not understand a word, the vid tells the story with verve and humor and clearly enough: Guess who this blonde bride ends up with at her wedding?  :D

NICOLAE GUTA-GIGOLO (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etcq8f7ya8Y#normal)

More of the "Women and me" genre, he seems to be a kind of Romanian Rattler...  ;D :

NICOLAE GUTA-SUNT FRUMOSUL SATULUI (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgeOf7JJFms#normal)

Listening to him I am never really sure whether I should laugh at the guy or adore him, his voice is actually fairly good, and some of his music hits home. As I have to leave for work, I will post about his (interesting) dance floor stuff later in another post.

Enjoy or not,

Here are a few from Utah Phillips, filmed at the Strawberry Music Festival in California's sierra mountains near Yosemite. When I lived in Cali I would go to this Bluegrass festival twice a year (Memorial Day-May and Labor Day-Sept) four days of music in the mountains. Utah was a favorite of mine and was highly approachable as he loved to talk to people as you can see by his style of music.

What a sympathetic gentleman!

Reminds me of "Grandpa Elliot", one of the true "amateurs" (a street musician in New Orleans) I mentioned before and have been following for some time (sorry, will stick with that theme for some time to come...  hdbng).

Quote
...a familiar street performer in New Orleans. He is an expert Harmonica player and has a beautiful voice, as you will hear. He can often be found outside the gift shop at Royal and Toulouse Street, but will also play outside of Cafe Du Monde and other places throughout the quarter. He is now legally blind, but is well loved, so he finds help to get around the quarter. Make sure to see him when you go to New Orleans and tip him well. He deserves it...



Amazing Grace (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_2siewLVmqU#normal)

I am almost sure he probably would have stated the same if he had been interested:

Grandpa Elliot Sings If I were a Rich Man in New Orleans (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYA9sE0hihU#normal)

He has hit cult status now, probably because of a special invitation to perform at Dodger Stadium, he hit the 500.000 today in 90% of his vids.

Post by: Rattler on 12 December 2009, 22:11:01
Ok, I seriously do not know where to post it, here or in funny vids, but I decide this thread is the right place.

This is primarily for Solideo (though he probably knows it), then 2nd for Sky. The reason is they understand Spanish and simply can jump to the last vid in this post (if the vids do not appear, as we again! have reached the youtube allowance for vids on one page, simply click on the link below it (title)).

As for all others, as it is marvelous, wonderful, real Spanish and brings to the point why I live here (and it even is on topic forumwise!), you will have to bear with me for a sec a I have to explain the background else you won´t understand what you are seeing/hearing:

Bkgnd 1: It all starts out with the worldwide hit song "Macarena", now 15 years old, by "Los del Rio". "The song everybdy knows but nobody admits", really not one of my favorites (actually I used to hate it ferociously and find it quite frightening that so many ppl had it 60 weeks on #1, it beat Elvis and everybody else in history .- though it is fun to dance in fiestas when you have a little blood left in the alcohol :) ), but it was the "Summer Hit" in ´94 (there is one every year :) ) and still today there is not one popular fiesta where it is not sung or danced.

If you ever want to learn the dance moves that here everybody between 5 and 80+ knows and dances in synchronity, check out this vid:

Macarena (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlzwuFkn88U#normal)

Live, at parties, it looks like this (here, for you guys convinience, young girls, but at the popular dances you have maybe 100 ladies up to their 80´s dancing the same, all in unison - with rather frozen faces here in Mallorca, "...going through the moves" and you will never beat them at it :) )

bailando la macarena en la azalea (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTezm5wr5Go#normal)

Bkgnd 2: Ok, now to the lyrics:

It actually is not very important to know the lyrics as they are made by such deep thinkers that we cannot really follow anyway, but let me focus on the central part:

Quote
Dale a tu cuerpo alegría macarena
que tu cuerpo es pa' darle alegría y cosa buena.
dale a tu cuerpo alegría macarena.
eh, macarena. Ay!



This part translates to (more or less):

Quote
Give your body joy, Macarena
because your body is for bringing happiness and good things.
Give your body joy, Macarena.
eh, macarena. Ay!



If you ever want to learn all the very complicated lyrics, here you have them (dancefloor version):

Los Del Rio - La Macarena ( Full Spanish Version with Lyrics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uv5zKd1rqcM#normal)

OK, enough background, why do I post all that stuff?

Check out this ad vid, it is in Spanish (mainly), but even not speaking the language, with above lesson and following quick summary you will get the idea:

- Someplace on the world. UN soldiers, Spanish and Brits working together (well...  :whistle:). Shift to the Spanish tent... Post arrives from home, brought in by the Brits: A fairly recent pic of the kid, the soccer paper of last month (Marca! :) ), and then, what every Spanish soldier longs for, food from home (Ham!)... OH, what is that? Where is my ham? Looks like the Brits robbed it and replaced it... with *pudding!*

Time to swing into action, get the ham back from the Brits! ...But what do you do when you do not know English and your adversary hasn´t even ever heard of Spain?  Discover for yorself:

My favorite Madonna song.  This song was on the 'true blue' Madonna album.  It brings back  some good memories for me.  Some years back I was living in the Okanagan, in British Columbia,  in a town called Osoyoos.  At the time I was dating a local mechanic, this always reminds me of him,   and I would have to do a lot of mountain driving.  I would play this song many a time while driving over the mountains.

As it has gotten a bit quiet today, here some more of my new favorite, Nicolae Guta (you remember the guy? http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/the-lounge-get-a-beer-go-off-topic/the-omnipresent-currently-playing-%28music%29-thread/msg10470/#msg10470 (http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/the-lounge-get-a-beer-go-off-topic/the-omnipresent-currently-playing-%28music%29-thread/msg10470/#msg10470))!

This time from his more modern and dancefloor stuff (but the girls till around!). I do not know whether the quarter notes that he is singing (which are so typical for Turkish, Arab, Indian or even Southern Spanish music) will be of pleasure to your ears just used to listen to half notes, but he does it really well, you can play it in any disco.

As always when he dives into a genre, he takes it serious:

I do not know what this one is about, but I have a hunch it treating small Wieners vs. propped up cars.. :) The title, anyway, translates to something like "You are worth it" according to google..

Nicolae Guta - N-ai valoare (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjJpq1rlVSU#normal)

This one, with another singer, has the title "Throw your card", and if I wouldn´t know it was Romanian, Indian or Turkish music would be my first guess:

Manele - Nicolae Guta & Florin Universalu' - Trag cu cardu (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MdchZ50Q18#normal)

This man is afraid of nothing! Just check the outfit!? :) GRRREAT!

Nicolae Guta Brazilianu si Don Genove - Vin Baietii (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38PJ6XK9wNY#normal)

More modern (still with girls! :) ) and one of the ones I would put up for a fiesta:

Nicolae Gutã-Mã mãnâncã palma stângã (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvk3rd2Y9Ds#normal)

And finally (there are simply too many videos out there to decide, I have counted - and viewed, at least partially - over 300 by now) a live act, isn´t he gorgeouos in his style? I wish I had that "chuzpa", a real happy "Rattler" to my liking  :champ::

I know Cervantes would turn in his grave listening to it in English, but I like the idea (and the Musical: The Man of La Mancha, a medevial Rattler by all rights :) ):

Impossible Dream (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGzqbEeVWhs#normal)

Dulcinea- Brian Stokes Mitchell (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLsQvCKG58k#normal)

Quote
Aldonza "Dulcinea" Lorenzo del Toboso is a fictional character who is referred to (but does not appear) in Miguel de Cervantes' novel Don Quixote. Seeking the traditions of the knights-errant of old, Don Quixote finds a true love whom he calls Dulcinea. She is a simple peasant in his home town, but Quixote imagines her to be the most beautiful of all women. At times, Quixote goes into detail about her appearance, though he freely admits that he has seen her only fleetingly and has never spoken with her.

Don Quixote describes her appearance in the following terms: "… her name is Dulcinea, her country El Toboso, a village of La Mancha, her rank must be at least that of a princess, since she is my queen and lady, and her beauty superhuman, since all the impossible and fanciful attributes of beauty which the poets apply to their ladies are verified in her; for her hairs are gold, her forehead Elysian fields, her eyebrows rainbows, her eyes suns, her cheeks roses, her lips coral, her teeth pearls, her neck alabaster, her bosom marble, her hands ivory, her fairness snow, and what modesty conceals from sight such, I think and imagine, as rational reflection can only extol, not compare."


Enjoy,

Did you check out the Giants ("Gigantes" in Spanish) before commiting? Those guys with four arms, ready to hit you anytime?

"Excuse me Sir, but to what Giants are you refering to?" ... "Those there, on the hill!" -snip-  "But, Sir, they are not Giants, those are wind mills ("Molinos" in Spanish)!"

"Oh, Sancho, do not tell me they are wind mills, shut up! If you are afraid, feel free to stay behind, it is not your cause, but I will not evade battle with them... "

..."but, Sir, they are just wind mills!"

.... "They are... Giants!... and I will take them on for you, Dulcinea!"  hatsoff

Really, are we not, 500 yrs later, living the same passions, convictions and errors? What makes a hero a hero? Did Cervantes paint something akin to every man on the planet?

For me, as Rattler, it is easy to see why Cervantes is the (German) Goethe and the (Brit) Shakespeare of Spain and why Don Quijote is the national hero, ridiculous or not...  :champ:  A true "Knight"!  hatsoff :salute: (he even probalby would have won if it had not been for the "Great Enchanter"!) from a timeless novel...!

El Quijote - Molinos de Viento (Wind Mills) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44Fze3GXwRs#normal)

For our English speaking friends, more or less the same scene, from a different interpretation (wherein Don Quixote does battle with a giant four armed monster, but is deprived of glory by the Great Enchanter), a bit - much - more American than the one before (DC here is painted more ridiculous than he actually was, but maybe the director did not understand the profoundness of Cervantes´vision):

Okies, for something (halfway completely) different: All this wind mill stuff made me remember one of the real beautiful songs that form part of my credo and that somehow had lodged istelf in a cavern of my mind where the sun has never shone recently: "Windmills of Your Mind", here perfomed by Sting (but it is a song of my childhood, by Michel Legrand, many interpreters out there if you search):

Quote
Round, like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel.
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnaval balloon
Like a carousell that's turning
Running rings around the moon

Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on it's face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Like a tunnel that you follow
To a tunnel of it's own
Down a hollow to a cavern
Where the sun has never shone
Like a door that keeps revolving
In a half forgotten dream
Or the ripples from a pebble
Someone tosses in a stream.

Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on it's face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Keys that jingle in your pocket
Words that jangle your head
Why did summer go so quickly
Was it something that I said
Lovers walking allong the shore,
Leave their footprints in the sand
Was the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand

Pictures hanging in a hallway
And a fragment of this song
Half remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong
When you knew that it was over
Were you suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the color of her hair

Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel
As the images unwind
Like the circle that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Pictures hanging in a hallway
And the fragment of this song
Half remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong
When you knew that it was over
Were you suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the color of her hair

Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning,
On an ever spinning wheel
As the images unwind
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

A kind of a shame for a mil site, we somehow missed the one and only song *every* soldier knows and cherishs, no matter which side he fights on or which nation he comes from (and all civivies here are kindly invited to listen to all of them, it is a song you will never forget once having listened to it, and if you are a street musician it will grant you income in whatever country :) )...

Here a quick rundown on different national takes, the differences are due to culture, and, so, paint a picture of each culture in just ... a song  Speaking always about the same, the heartache having to part and the hope of meeting again...:

What a truly beautiful song,  Rattler.  She's very lucky, the lady who inspired you to post this one.

I really like the following song by Elton John,  about Norma Jean.  Such a special childlike woman.

I am always torn, sometimes I see her like you, sometimes as a kind of high class whore, never can decide what I really believe in the respect, simply cannot make up my mind, as even simple things as beer do not always meet my expectations (this bit said, nobody ever has to worry about me, I can live with the outcome of both the beer and the women, just it is that I am a bit particular, sometimes, and to be Tom Waits ´76 really would not break my schemes :) ):

Does it not have to be "Navidul"?  :D

ANUNCIO NAVIDUL CANIBALES VERSION LARGA (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BUruTUd1YN8#normal)

(For the Spanish challenged - someone say again I am not diplomatic?  :whistle:):

This is a 2nd part of an ad of "Navidul Hams", where two Spanish explorers (first ad showed them in the supermarket buying ham, where one explorer wants to buy Navidul, and the other a much cheaper one: "Ah, don´t tell me we will meet cannibals that will know the difference, this one is cheaper!")get caught by cannibals, have to go the ropes (I like the ladies: "He will not make a good soup, needs to do some Pilates first... ") and out of instinct try to convince them to rethink their take on life: "Brothers cannibals, whay not eat our Ham instead of us?".

The cannibals dont trust the offer, so the "oracle" is called, turns out it is a monkey (Explorer right: "But, that is a monkey!?" Explorer left: "Shhht... Don´t tell him!") who tests the ham and then finds it has too much salt, "more than the river Katuranga", it simply not is Navidul: "Oh, how I remember those snacks in the bar of Paco in Madrid! Oh, that delicious ham!"...

Verdict: "Off to the pot with them"!...

Lesson Learned: "With your Ham, you don´t want to take any risks!"

Enjoy,

A song that I liked when I was young, now I found another, nice version.

The original:

Music was my first Love John Miles (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2Wj6bdEozo#normal)

And here, a nice cover , made by "Il Divo", a casted "Four Tenors" group (Carlos Marín (baríton, Spain), David Miller (tenor, US), Sebastien Izambard (voz popular, France) y Urs Buhler (tenor, Switzerland), with Italian lyrics:

Quote
Musica è il mio amore
Il primo e l'ultimo
Musica è il futuro
Ed il passato in me.

Restare senza note
Impossibile perchè
In queste stanze vuote
La musica mia c'è

Musica è l'amore
Primo e anche l'unico
Regalo mio più grande
La musica per te

Musica è il mio amore
Il primo e l'ultimo
Musica è il futuro
Ed il passato in me
Ed il passato in me
Il passato in me

E nel mio spirito
Un canto libero
La musica è la vita
Che c'è in me
E non ha limite

Musica è il mio amore
Il primo e l'ultimo
Musica è il futuro
Ed il passato in me

Restare senza note
Impossibile perchè
In queste stanze vuote
La musica mia c'è

And another one, for Jilly, Sky and Solideo primarily:

A song of the new disc of "Bebé", she has so often been called feministic with her initial work, took a pause of 4 yrs, and this year was back: Nothing feministic, apart from being exactly my prey scheme I think she is a deep thinking woman that has an uncompared style of saying things...

This one is surely politically incorrect , but very sensual (hence censored in the US, for both reasons I presume):

Quote
No subestimes a esta bicha
aunque tenga poca chicha en la cintura
Anda quítame la envoltura
y ya verás. Ya verás. (2 veces)

Que por delante y detrás soy un animal
no una musa celestial.
Y a mi salvaje me gusta sacar a pasear
A subirse por los pinos a jugar con la rueda de los molinos.

Yo monté en mi columpio de cuerdas
Y liarme alguna que otra juerga bajo las estrellas
En el mar y en el campo
Y que el sol nos descubra bailando

Y el viento que nos refresca to el mambo
Mis pies, descalzos en el fango chapotean,
Se balancean, mírame bien

Soy una princesa, guerrera, campera
Oceánica, volcánica, eléctrica y mu suavecita
Que cuando quiero soy una gatita, y ronroneo

No subestimes a esta bicha
aunque tenga poca chicha en la cintura
Anda quítame la envoltura
y ya verás. Ya verás. (2 veces)

A ver tontones,
Que cuando quiero llevo pantalones
Pero mas me gusta la faldita
Pa que me metas la manita por debajo
Y me arranques to lo arrancable

Métete dentro de mi
Que quiero sentir,
Si es verdad tu a tu verbo
Saca la correa y átamela bien a la muñeca
A ver si es verdad que me revuelves las pecas

Ven a juntar tu tierra con la mía
Y a montar alguna garabía
Que si lo haces bien te regalo un cucurucho
Y te achucho

Con mis piernas, con mi pelo
Con mi lengua, lenguaje el que tu y yo vamos a inventar
No me interesa que alguien lo quiera escuchar
Que es un lenguaje físico, carnal y brutal

No subestimes a esta bicha
aunque tenga poca chicha en la cintura
Anda quítame la envoltura
y ya verás. Ya verás. (2 veces)

Frente a frente
Ponte delante de mi
Provócame pa que te envista
Pide pistas, no me vistas
Que yo te pico como una avispa.

Avispada soy cuando quiero,
Cuando quiero soy un mortero.
Y machaco con mis ojos
a los impertinentes de miradas hirientes.

Que no me importa lo q piense la gente.
que no me importa lo q piense la gente.
que no me importa lo q piense la gente.
Así que no subestimen a esta bicha.

No subestimes a esta bicha
aunque tenga poca chicha en la cintura.
Anda quítame la envoltura
y ya verás. Ya verás. (2 veces)

No subestimes a esta bicha
aunque tenga poca chicha en la cintura.
No subestimes a esta bicha
aunque tenga poca chicha.

No es traidor el que avisa.
Do not underestimate this animal!
though it has little fat on the waist (diplomatic approach to "small tits")
Come on! Take off my wrap-around
and you'll find out. You'll find out. (2 times)

It´s that up front and back I am an animal,
not a heavenly muse.
And I like to take my savageness for a walk
To climb the pine trees to play with the wheels of the wind mills.

I got on my rope swing
To get me the occasional party under the stars,
in the sea and at the countryside
So that the sun would discover us still dancing...

And the wind that cools down all the Mambo,
My feet, splashing barefoot in the mud,
They balance things, take a good look!

I'm a princess, a warrioress, a lady from the fields,
oceanic, volcanic, electrical and very "suave"
Because when I want, I am a kitten, and purr...

Do not underestimate this little animal!
though it has little fat on the waist
Come on! Take off my wrap-around
and you'll find out. You'll find out. (2 times)

Let´s see, stupids:
When I want to, I wear pants -
but I like the skirt more
So that you can put your hand under it,
And start what can be started...

Get in me,
I want to feel you,
If you are true to your word,
Then get out the leash and tie my wrists,
Let´s see if you really can make my freckles turn inside...

Come join your land with mine
And to ride any Garabi
If you do well I'll give you a cone a premium,
and I shag you...

With my legs, my hair,
With my tongue, or with the language that you and I are going to invent,
I do not care that someone might listen
That language is physical, carnal and pretty straightforward!

Do not underestimate this little animal!
though it has little fat on the waist
Come on! Take off my wrap-around
and you'll find out. You'll find out. (2 times)

Head to head,
Stand in front of me!
Provoke me so I can see you
Calls the tracks, don´t dress me up
because I sting you like a wasp.

I'm shrewd, when I want to!
I am a mortar, when I want to!
And with my eyes I can crush
those impertinent hurtful looks...

I do not care what people think,
I do not care what people think,
I do not care what people think,
So, do not underestimate this little animal.

Do not underestimate this animal!
though it has little fat on the waist
Come on! Take off my wrap-around
and you'll find out. You'll find out. (2 times)
 
Do not underestimate this animal!
though it has little fat on the waist
Do not underestimate this animal!
though it has little fat on the waist

ATTENTION: He who warns is *not* a traitor.

Meant to post this one for a long time, primarily had it prepared for Jillys´HANG forum in the "agressioin" thread, but I hink it fits here very well also.

There are two type of men I really hate, pederasts and men who beat their women. Here to the women who suffer such treatment, from the fist album of Bebé, 2005, before she took her 4 years sabbatical, for me one of her best songs ever, what a power in lyrics and music! (the translation cannot fully transport the Spanish meaning):

Quote
Apareciste una noche fria
con olor a tabaco sucio y a ginebra
el miedo ya me recorría
mientras cruzaba los deditos tras la puerta
Tu carita de niño guapo
se l'ha ido comiendo el tiempo por tus venas
y tu inseguridad machista
se refleja cada día en mis lagrimitas

Una vez más, no por favor que estoy cansá
y no puedo con el corazón
Una vez más, no mi amor por favor,
no grites que los niños duermen.

Una vez más, no por favor que estoy cansá
y no puedo con el corazón
Una vez más, no mi amor por favor,
no grites que los niños duermen.

Voy a volverme como el fuego
voy a quemar tus puños de acero
y del morao de mis mejillas sacar valor
para cobrarme las heridas.

Malo, malo, malo eres
no se daña a quien se quiere, no
tonto, tonto, tonto eres
no te pienses mejor que las mujeres
Malo, malo, malo eres
no se daña a quien se quiere, no
tonto, tonto, tonto eres
no te pienses mejor que las mujeres

El dia es gris cuando tu éstas
y el sol vuelve a salir cuando te vas
y la penita de mi corazón
yo me la tengo que tragar con el fogón
mi carita de niña linda
se ha ido envejeciendo en el silencio
cada vez que me dices puta
se hace tu cerebro más pequeño

Una vez más, no por favor que estoy cansá
y no puedo con el corazón
Una vez más, no mi amor por favor,
no grites que los niños duermen.

Una vez más, no por favor que estoy cansá
y no puedo con el corazón
Una vez más, no mi amor por favor,
no grites que los niños duermen.

Voy a volverme como el fuego
voy a quemar tus puños de acero
y del morao de mis mejillas sacar valor
para cobrarme las heridas.

Malo, malo, malo eres
no se daña a quien se quiere, no
tonto, tonto, tonto eres
no te pienses mejor que las mujeres
Malo, malo, malo eres
no se daña a quien se quiere, no
tonto, tonto, tonto eres
no te pienses mejor que las mujeres...

Voy a volverme como el fuego
voy a quemar tus puños de acero
y del morao de mis mejillas sacar valor
para cobrarme las heridas.

Malo, malo, malo eres
no se daña a quien se quiere, no
tonto, tonto, tonto eres
no te pienses mejor que las mujeres
Malo, malo, malo eres
no se daña a quien se quiere, no
tonto, tonto, tonto eres
no te pienses mejor que las mujeres...

Malo, malo, malo eres
malo eres, porque quieres
Malo, malo, malo eres
no me chilles que me duele
Eres debil y eres malo no te pienses
mejor que yo ni que nadie

y ahora yo me fumo un cigarrito
y te hecho el humo en el corazoncito
porque malo, malo, malo eres, tu
malo, malo, malo eres, si
malo, malo, malo eres, siempre
malo, malo malo eres.
You appeared one cold night
smelling of tobacco and gin
fear was already creeping up me
while crossing my fingers behind the door
Your handsome boy´s face
lt 'has disappeared through the time
and your macho insecurity
is reflected every day in my little tears

Please, not again, I'm so tired..
I can´t bear it in my heart,
Once more again, please not, my love,
do not shout, the kids are sleeping.

Please, not again, I'm tired of it,
I can`t bear it in my heart,
Once more again?! Please not, my love,
do not shout, the kids are sleeping.

I'm going to convert me into fire,
I'll burn your fists of steel,
and I will find the courage in my purple brown cheeks
to make you pay for my wounds.

Bad! Bad! Bad you are,
you don´t damage what you love!
Stupid! Stupid! Stupid you are,
stop thinking you are superior to women!
Bad! Bad! Bad you are,
one doesn´t damage what one loves!
Stupid! Stupid! Stupid you are,
stop thinking you are superior to women!

The day is gray when you're present,
and the sun comes back out when you go.
And the hurt in my heart
I have to swallow at the kitchen fires.
My lovely girl's face
has aged in the silence,
every time you call me whore
your brain is getting a bit smaller.

Please, not once more again, I'm tired..
I can´t bear it in my heart,
Once more again, please not, my love
do not shout, the kids are sleeping.

Please, not once more again, I'm so tired of it,
I can´t bear it in my heart,
Once more again, please not, my love
do not shout, the kids are sleeping.

I'm going to convert me into fire,
I'll burn your fists of steel,
and I will find the courage coming from my purple brown cheeks
to make you pay for my wounds.

Bad! Bad! Bad you are,
one doesn´t damage what one loves!
Stupid! Stupid! Stupid you are,
stop thinking you are superior to women!
Bad! Bad! Bad you are,
one doesn´t damage what one loves!
Stupid! Stupid! Stupid you are,
stop thinking you are superior to women!

I'm going to convert me into fire,
I'll burn your fists of steel,
and from my purple brown cheeks will come the courage
to make you pay for my wounds.

Bad! Bad! Bad you are,
you don´t damage what you love!
Stupid! Stupid! Stupid you are,
stop thinking you are superior to women!
Bad! Bad! Bad you are,
you don´t damage what you love!
Stupid! Stupid! Stupid you are,
stop thinking you are superior to women!

You are bad, bad, bad!
You are bad, because you want to!
You are bad, bad, bad!
Don´t shout, that hurts my ears!
You are weak and bad, stop thinking you're...
... better than I or anyone!

And now I am going to smoke a cigarette
and I will blow the smoke right into your little heart,
because:  Bad, bad, bad you are, you!
bad, bad, bad you are, yes!
bad, bad, bad you are, always!
Bad, bad, bad you are!

I, too, find "Malo" more powerful, but I find La Bicha very sensual indeed. Different songs for different times.

Title: Re: The Omnipresent, currently playing (music) thread...
Post by: Rattler on 23 December 2009, 21:17:48
Thanks, FACman, Jilly!

Another one of Bebé as I have a hunch her songs are appreciated here. For me she is some kind of "Joan Baez" of our times, both with her first album from 2005 and now, in 2009, with her second album - however different they may be. Those singers are so refreshingly more natural as the "casted" brand of the Britney Spear/Enrique Iglesias type that we get assaulted with since 10 yrs, they sing what they think or feel, they *think* (!), they can play an instrument, they write poems, they are authentic...

I had been following her from various angles (since "Malo" which made me take note of her presence), I have collected vid material about her surroundings, childhood and other stuff (not knowing her at that time, talking ´90+ here, it was through research on my probably never to be finished "Music of the South" aka Flamenco project), I have read and listened to a lot of her interviews she gave, and I have had the luck (or bad luck, time will show) to have met her in person. From all angles I have been impressed.

This one (from her new one) will become my 2010 "Valentine Song for Separated Lovers", it is really hard to translate as she now plays the lyrics much more subtle (and the pics!) and with a lot of double meanings involved, so, I will take the liberty to sometimes provide different translations of the same phrase to transport a bit of this subtlety (or add alternative meanings in parenthesis). For example, the central refrain, "¿donde estabas cuando te llamaba?" translates literally into "Where were you when I phoned you", but it could also  - depending on context - mean "Where were you when I needed you" and many more, I translated it differnetly every time.

Anyway, many of us men who once in their life were left by the woman they loved and without obvious causes to blame (while thinking they had done everything possible and within their power to keep things alive and vivid) have a lot of questions (if they´re the doubting type, of cause) that this song maybe cannot answer but shade a female light on those things we men will never understand but can only guess... my take, that is.


Quote
Me fui, pa echarte de menos
me fui, pa volver de nuevo
me fui, pa estar sola
me fui

porque estaba tan cerca, casi tan cerca
que no puedo ver lo que tengo cerca de mis ojos.
Mis manos, que ya no son manos y pienso en vano
que un dia vuelvan a darme la vida.

Me estoy echando contra los ojos de otro muchacho
que al menos cuando me mira me hace reirme un rato,
porque los tuyos estan tan lejos de mi
que casi no puedo mirarlos

Mientras...

¿donde estabas cuando te llamaba?
¿donde estabas cuando te llamaba?
¿donde estabas cuando mi voz se hacia tan pequeña
que no salia y se ahogaba en una habitacion
o dentro de mi?
¿Donde estabas cuando dormias a mi lado y yo no podia dormir?
¿Donde estabas cuando te escuchaba palabras que no creias ni tu?
Entre tanta mierda, dime, ¿donde estabas tu?

¿donde estabas cuando te llamaba?
¿donde estabas cuando te llamaba?
¿donde estabas cuando te llamaba?
¿donde estabas cuando te llamaba?

por eso me fui
pa echarte de menos
me fui, pa volver de nuevo
me fui pa estar sola
me fui, por eso me fui
pa echarte de menos
me fui, pa volver de nuevo
me fui pa estar sola,
me fui

¿donde estabas cuando te llamaba?
¿donde estabas cuando te llamaba?
¿donde estabas cuando te llamaba?
¿donde estabas cuando te llamaba?
por eso me fui
pa echarte de menos
me fui, pa volver de nuevo
por eso me fui, pa estar sola

me fui, pa volver a hacerlo de nuevo otra vez.
I left, to feel missing you (to see how it would be to miss you)
I left, to come back (again/as new)
I left, to be alone
I left...

Because I have been so close, almost *so* close
that I can not see anymore what is close to my eyes.
My hands, which are no longer hands, and I hope in vain
that one day they will give me life back again.

I'm throwing myself against the eyes of another guy...
At least, when he looks at me, he makes me smile for a moment,
because your eyes are so far away from me (so distant),
that I can almost not see them (that I can almost not bear looking at them)

In the mean time...

Where were you when I phoned you?
Where were you when I asked for you (r presence)?
Where were you when my voice became so small
that it did not come out and drowned in a room,
or within me?
Where were you when you slept at my side and I could not sleep?
Where were you when I heard you saying stuff you don´t even believe yourself?
Between all this shit, tell me: Where were you?

Where were you when I phoned you?
Where were you when I called your attention?
Where were you when I asked your presence?
Where were you when I phoned you?

That´s why I left...
To feel how it is to miss you,
I left, to be new again
I left,  to be alone
I left, that´s why I left.
To feel missing you
I left to come back
I left to be alone,
I left.

Where were you when I phoned you?
Where were you when I called your attention?
Where were you when I asked your presence?
Where were you when I phoned you?
So I left.
To miss you,
I left to become new.
I left to be alone.

I left, to find me soon repeating all this over again (I left, to come back and to start it all new again ).

So, I have finished Univeristy for Christmas, and I finally had the time to make a new video. No robot voice this time, instead I asked my friend Rachel for help, and she sang in the video! She is a very good singer.

Song was written by me, all of the filming and stop motion, as well as editing was done by me. Rachel helped with some lyrics too =)

Special thanks to my family for putting up with cameras everywhere, and for dancing like idiots =)

Hi everybody, I am working all this time because I want to save hipocresy with family. waa. I love emergencies, it´s so nice how to see how people fun in this parties stabbing eacothers, getting pissed and drugged till death...lovely. ;)

Ironics apart, wanna wish you all the best, specially the ones I know more (please forgive me if I forget any)

- Facman, you surprise me man, go on rolling, would be great to meet you once.
- Rattler, what to tell about you, Mel Gibson was a poofy doll in Mad Max character. Really one was "Mad Matt, evil in the island"
- Jilly. my favourite "deep soul", so full of feelings inside.
- Koen, the explicit example of how being a moderator, serious but nearby. Congratulations.
- Sky, my crazy bird of short wings, so fast, so furious, so...tired when wind blows against but never stop trying to reach the finish.

As said, all the best for ALL.

Now a music thread, I am sure Rattler curiosity will look out for lyrics and translation, as his bad arse demands.

Toad the Wet Sprocket - Crazy Life (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqZ4FZHEZAI#normal)

Lyrics...

anyway now, it don't seem right
he is in there and you're on the outside
over pine ridge to wounded knee
there's blood on the ground as far as you see
crazy life

in the air i'm sensing a change in the weather
in the end the path is clear
does anyone remember here
did you all think he'd just disappear
crazy life
what have you done with Peltier
who did you think you'd taken away
crazy life

in the air i'm sensing a change in the weather
in the end the path is clear

burying won't stop it breathing forever
underground it takes to root

anyway, it don't seem right
he is in there and you're on the outside
what have you done with Peltier
who did you think you'd taken away
it's not over...

Jilly, I heard of this one but never really listened, as it is not my kind of muszak...

This time, I listened, and, in combinantion with your post, it makes me wonder:

Do you listent to that muisc at home? Is it a curltural thing for Candadinas (as maybe Flamenco would qualify for the Andalusians)?  Or, is it more a concert thingy, where you go to to listen to those songs/artists? Or, you see/hear this kind of performance in a bar, get glued, and then later look for a "representative" musician for a whhole music gender?

I am sereiously asking, how does that music propagate, and what is *your* affiliation to it?

I like country music,  and it's big here where I live.  We have a station on the radio that is especially for and all about country music.  Also there is a channel on T.V.  all just for country music.  It's everywhere,  the bars,  the rodeos etc.   It's not the only kind of music I listen to,  Listen to all sorts.  Some country music if rubbish, just like any other kind.

It's amazing what can influence us isn't it?  depending on where we live?

having a discussion on another forum with a guy who found U2 annoying I wanted to share this one from their last album.

I entered that discussion because I wanted to know WHY he found them annoying but at the end never got a satisfying answer....

I'm not a blind fan...but don't say bullsh*** like "don't know why but they annoy me"...

For those who enterd later in the thread, like Solideo, Mike and Sky, and did not have time yet to review it in total this piece (I was discussing Finnish Films with a bloke tonight at our traditional sunset-watching-drink and remembered I had an article about this fictious, artificial, but best ever live show band I have had a chance to see perform on our thread; seems strange that only 9 month have passed since then? I actually found out again that we have a *lot* of interesting, different and stimulating music here!):

The article, really liked re-reading it though it took an hour with all the vids: http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/the-lounge-get-a-beer-go-off-topic/the-omnipresent-currently-playing-%28music%29-thread/msg3659/#msg3659 (http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/the-lounge-get-a-beer-go-off-topic/the-omnipresent-currently-playing-%28music%29-thread/msg3659/#msg3659)

Todays excerpt piece, for Solideo (boy, have those guys gone fat in the last 15 yrs...!  ;D):

From the "Total Balalaika Show" 2003 (and for Uriah Heep to learn from): Leningrad Cowboys - Easy Livin` cover (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKH63LKQBQc#normal)

If you ever get a chance to see them, forget the tickets price, you having a great concert where you come home absolutely shattered, exhausted from dancing your lungs out and with a big smile on your face is guaranteed, this one for both FACMan & Koen:

As I will be leaving the forum for a while, here some (really bad!) music that stems from my childhood: Ivan Rebroff (himself as singer not at all bad: 4.5 octaves of voice spectrum !!), but, he, as German (his true name revealed: Hans-Rolf Rippert), pretended to be Russian, dressed and behaved like the spit-image, and 99% of Germans believe(d) he was! - that is where my (re)search came from: LC, a Finnish band pretending to be Russians pretending to be Americans - listen to (if you can bear it) to ome tunes of my youth:

Let us start with one where you don´t see it so openly (he speaks English, the Song is a both Russian AND German WWII song (Firmly stands a soldier at the Volga beach), hard to understand the lyrics as he sings it with "fake" Russian accent), sorry, the vid is slightly out of sync:

Ivan Rebroff - Es steht ein Soldat am Wolgastrand (There stands firm a soldier at the Volga beach) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YqjVP9Y93o#normal)

Here, at 78 yrs (!), a month befor his death, in a Christian classic, displaying still all of his volatitlity, a great voice indeed!:

IVAN REBROFF "Ave Maria" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6DOUB3O35E#normal)

And, to make the connection with LC, here in a mix from shots from 1969, the year his career started to lift off (the young Serge Gainsbourg copy is actually Ivan Rebroff, before starting as "Russian"!), mixed with 2008, a month beofre his death in September, with "Kalinka":

Ivan Rebroff in Memoriam -- Kalinka Malinka (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSiFASGKjBI#normal)

Probably the first "fake" artist ever! (he sure had me convinced, I only now in my research found out he was actually a German, 40 yrs later! Such go the illusions.... :( )

Quote
Why Aye Man
We had no way of staying afloat
We had to leave on the ferry boat
Economic refugees
On the run to Germany
We had the back of Maggie's hand
Times were tough in Geordieland
We got wor tools and working gear
And humped it all from Newcastle to here

Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man

We're the nomad tribes, travelling boys
In the dust and dirt and the racket and the noise
Drills and hammers, diggers and picks
Mixing concrete, laying bricks
There's English, Irish, Scots, the lot
United Nation's what we've got
Brickies, chippies, every trade
German building, british-made

Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man

Nae more work on Maggie's farm
Hadaway down the autobahn
Mine's a portacabin bed
Or a bunk in a nissen hut instead

There's plenty deutschmarks here to earn
And German tarts are wunderschön
German beer is chemical-free
Germany's alreet with me
Sometimes I miss my river Tyne
But you're my pretty fraulein
Tonight we'll drink the old town dry
Keep wor spirit levels high

Why aye man, why aye, why aye man
Why aye man, why aye, why aye man


So Far Away (live)
Here I am again in this mean old town
And you're so far away from me
And where are you when the sun goes down
You're so far away from me

So far away from me
So far I just can't see
So far away from me
You're so far away from me

I'm tired of being in love and being all alone
When you're so far away from me
I'm tired of making out on the telephone
And you're so far away from me

So far away from me
So far I just can't see
So far away from me
You're so far away from me

I get so tired when I have to explain
When you're so far away from me
See you been in the sun and I've been in the rain
And you're so far away from me

So far away from me
So far I just can't see
So far away from me
You're so far away from me


Speedway At Nazareth (live)
After two thousand came two thousand and one
To be the new champions, we were there for to run
From springtime in Arizona, 'til the fall in Monterey
And the raceways were the battlefields and we fought 'em all the way

Was at Phoenix in the morning, I had a wake-up call
She went around without a warning put me in the wall
I drove Long Beach, California with three cracked vertebrae
And we went on to Indianapolis, Indiana in May

Well the Brickyard's there to crucify anyone who will not learn
I climbed a mountain to qualify I went flat throught the turns
But I was down in the might-have-beens and an old pal good as died
And I sat down in Gasoline Alley and I cried

Well we were in at the kill again on the Milwaukee Mile
And in June up in Michigan we were robbed at Belle Isle
Then it was on to Portland Oregon for the G.I. Joe
And I'd blown off almost everyone when I my motor let go

New England, Ontario we died in the dirt
Those walls from mid-Ohio to Toronto they hurt
So we came to Road America where we burned up at the lake
But at the speedway at Nazareth I made no mistake

Gordieland was long time ago, Maggie also, and I remember having seen the tribes according to his lyrics (as now from Polonia and Ukrainia), still, the song (as almost everything by Knopfler) was great.

There is one difference to genious, though, you think the song has merit today or in 20 yrs? I am not sure about that.

Here my favorite Knopfler tunes (ay, that *singing* guitar!  :champ:), one from each of his composer/performer phases, guess which I like most?:

On forum topic:

Brothers in Arms - Dire Straits (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5JkHBC5lDs#normal)

Then, the "Going Home" theme, in its film version as played in "Local Hero" (the correct, if not the best, IMHO):

Mark Knopfler - Going Home Local Hero Theme (Night in London (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMwcGPjYAIk#normal)

And then, with his country flirt, having formed the "Notting Hillybillies" to get off the "Dire Straits " stress (and as I cnoot decidw which of this phase I like better, the foruth in this post just as linky):

Notting Hillbillies Your Own Sweet Way (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iezG7jR7mGI#normal)

Pat Metheney, anybody remembers him (one of my ´80s favorite musicians)? Fantastic guitar player, Mystic, Jazzer, Rocker, Visionaire and Music Philosopher?

Pat Metheny - Above The Treetops (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOly2Cby5kE#normal)

For Saltamontes, should you ever read this...

Pat Metheny & Charlie Haden - Our Spanish Love Song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qAtXtHxrHc#normal)

Well, he has done it again (which shows that we old farts can be as crazy as young ones, but with backup by money or friends :) )! A step into a future nobody knows what it will bring...:

He invented the "Orchestrion", a computer controlled bunch of instruments (so far nothing new), that is triggered by him playing guitar and the tunes he is playing both being interpreted and then distributed according to some sophisticated (presumably) algorithms to the various instruments...

Quote
Orchestrion brings a musical idea from the late 19th and early 20th centuries—a large mechanical multi-instrument device that utilizes actual orchestral instruments of various types, called an “Orchestrion”—to the technologies of today. Metheny’s concept includes a large ensemble of acoustic instruments—including several pianos, drum kit, marimbas, “guitar-bots,” dozens of percussion instruments and even cabinets of carefully tuned bottles. Through Metheny’s guitar and compositional mind, five new original pieces showcase the instruments as they are struck, plucked, and otherwise played via the technology of solenoid switches and pneumatics. Metheny worked for months with a brilliant team of scientists and engineers to develop and assemble the “New Orchestrion” for this project.

“As the instruments started to trickle in from the various inventors,” Metheny says, “the experience of writing for them and figuring out what might be possible with them provided a self-imposed challenge that proved to be difficult and time-consuming, but absolutely exhilarating. I am excited to share this project. If nothing else, this has turned out to be something unique. And in the process of developing all this music and these instruments and discovering what they can do and what they are good at, I learned so much. It feels like progress and has gotten some notes out of me that I didn’t know were there. But the surprise was just how far I was able to go with it all. Within this new environment, I found something in there that took me to some new places.”



Here a preview (CD will be starting to market JAN 26), what you hear is all himself only, playing guitar, plain digital music, but produced analogue, and by one artist only...

A time for a  new Jazz era, or a deadend street? Future will tell... Intriguing anyway:

Well, suffices to say, she won the contest.

This for a lady that I had never been trying to make mine, but whom I considered a friend, and seriously so. I have lost her today, just over one phone call: Again, seriously... (the  lyrics do not apply 100%, make it 80, too much on the "need you"  lane for my case and liking at the end, no crying here neither: It´s just a song, but there is one sentence repetitively coming up in the general take that says/asks all that has me sad in the context).

Go on, guapa! May the force be with you, I wont!

Quote
Mary wants to be a superwoman
But is that really in her head
But I just want to live each day to love her
for what she is

Mary wants to be another movie star
But is that really in her mind
And all the things she wants to be
She needs to leave behind

But, very well, I believe I know you-very well
Wish that you knew me too-very well
And I think I can deal with everything going through your head

Very well, and I think I can face-very well
Wish that you knew me too..., very well
And I think I can cope with everything going through your head

Mary wants to be a superwoman
And try to boss the bull around
But does she really think that she will get by with a dream

My woman want to be a superwoman
And I just had to say good-bye
Because I can't spend all my hours startn´ to cry

But, very well, I believe I know you
Very well, I wish that you knew me too
Very well, and I think I can deal with everything going through your head

Very well, I think that I know you too
Very well, I wish you knew me like I know you
Very well, but I think I can deal with everything going through your head

Very well, dum dum da, dum dum da
Very well, wish you knew me too
Very well, And I wish I could think of everything going through your head

Very well, dum dum da, dum da, dum da
dum dum da, dum da, very well
And I think I can deal with everything going through your head

When the summer came you were not around...
Now the summer's gone and love cannot be found...?
Where were you when I needed you - last winter, my love?

When the winter came you went further south
Parting from love's nest, leaving me in doubt,
Where are you when I need you, like right now?

Our love is at an end
But you say now you have changed
But tomorrow will reflect love's past

When the winter came you were not around
Through the bitter winds love could not be found
Where were you when I needed you, last winter, my love?

Oh I need you baby, I need you baby

Our love is at an end
But you say now you have changed,
But tomorrow will reflect love's past oh

Spring will fill the air and you will come around,
With your summer love that will let me down,
Where were you when I needed you, last winter, my love?

La la la la la, la la la la la
La la la la la, la la la la la
Where are you when I need you, like right now?
Right now, right now, right now

Where were you when I needed you last winter, my dear?
I need you baby, I need you baby, I need you baby
Oh, Where were you when I needed you last winter, last winter?

Yea, Need you Baby, need you, need you baby,
Oh, you want me too need you baby
Oh where were you when I needed you last, dear
Yea

And, also a bit the way I feel, one for me w/o any special reason... (got my period I think :) ):

There is a version (actually, two: I cannot decide which is better..., they are *very* different, and I cherish both singers...) for all those great ladies we have on this forum, also:

Nina Simone - My Way (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzQkX-IZDbQ#normal)

Shirley Bassey MY WAY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZy9FNLQM9E#normal)

For the foreigners, the lyrics:

Quote
And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, I'll say it clear,
I'll state my case, of which Im certain.

I've lived a life thats full.
I've traveled each and ev'ry highway;
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, I've had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.

I've loved, I've laughed and cried.
I've had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,
No, oh no not me,
I did it my way.

For what is a woman, what has she got?
If not herself, then she has naught.
To say the things she truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows -
And did it my way!

One for FACMan, Robert, Sky, Jilly, Solideo and all the other regulars, we need some more Blues here:

Dave Hole has been my favorite slide guitar Blues player since long (even better than Ry Cooder from my POV), even if in this vid the voice does not come over very well, the guitar surely does :)....check out his unusual style of playing his left hand, rather piano style!

P.S.: I have nothing against Ry Cooder, quite to the contrary, especially when with Steve Vai (here also on slide guitar, the R+B slide guitar duel from the movie Crossroads):

What would appear to be a contradiction in terms, Pink Floyd and blues, but Dave Gilmour did start out in a blues band.

And
Pink Floyd - Seamus The Dog (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdFOgLyk6Qs#normal)
This is the dog they used for Seamus.
A somewhat different style of blues, tight and ordered, not everybodies taste. I think it works though.

Preparing St. Valentines Day (FEB 14, for those in another orbit), one of my favorite choices ATM is (and probably for everyone who lost love, but still feels it, and feels ther just might be a chance), this so beautifully romantic (and hurting) song (works for gays and lesbians also!):

Quote
It´s been seven hours and fifteen days
since you took your love away.

I go out every night and sleep all day
since you took your love away.

Since you´ve been gone I can do whatever I want,
I can see whomever I choose.

I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant,
but nothing,
I said: Nothing! can take away this Blues,
because: Nothing compares,
nothing compares... to you.

It´s been so lonely without you here,
like a bird wthout a song...

Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling,
tell me, baby, where did I go wrong?

I could put my arms around every boy I see,
but they´d only remind me... (of you)

I went to the doctor, guess what he told me,
guess what he told me?
He said, girl, you´d better try to have some fun,
no matter what you do...
...but he´s a fool,
´cause nothing compares,
nothing compares... to you.

nothing compares,
nothing compares... to you!

All the flowers that you planted, mamma,
in the backyard,
all died when you went away.

I know that living with you, baby, was sometimes hard,  
but I ´m willing to give it another try...
nothing compares,
nothing compares... to you.

nothing compares,
nothing compares... to you.
nothing compares,
nothing compares... to you!
Han pasado siete horas y quince dias
desde que te llevastes tu amor.

Salgo todas las noches y duermo todo el dia
desde que te llevastes tu amor.

Desde que te fuistes puedo hacer lo que me da la gana,
puedo verme con quien me guste.

Puedo cenar en un restaurante pijo,
pero nada,
repito: Nada! puede quitar esta tristeza
porque nada se puede comparar a ti,
nada se compara a ti!

Ha sido tan vacio sin ti, aqui,
me siento como un pajaro sin canción...

Nada puede frenar estas lagrimas de soledad que estan cayendose,
dime, cariño, donde me eqivoqué?

Pudiera abrazar qualquier chico que veo,
pero sólo me recordarían (a ti).

Fui a ver el médico, adivina que me dijo,
adivina que me dijo?
Dijo, chica, deberias divertirte,
sin que te importe lo que hagas...
...pero es un tonto,
porque nada se puede comparar a ti,
nada se compara a ti!

Nada se compara,
nada se compara a ti!

Todas las flores que plantastes, mi amor,
en el patio,
todas se murieron cuando te fuistes.

Sé que vivir contigo, cariño, a veces fue duro,
pero quisiera intentarlo otra vez...
Nada se compara,
Nada se compara a ti.

Nada se puede comparar,
Nada se puede comparar a ti!
Nada se puede comparar,
Nada se puede comparar a ti!

Jody, Fan. Tas. Tic!

Not Scottish, but a bit along the same line, the old John Barleycorn legend:

Countless versions of this song exist. A version of the song is included in the Bannatyne Manuscript of 1568, and English broadside versions from the 17th century are common. Robert Burns published his own version in 1782, and modern versions abound.

Myself, I first heard it by Stevie Winwood with "Traffic", and this is the version I till today cherish, Recorded July 16th, 1970 at "Bio Vakantieoord", Bergen Aan Zee, for the album of the same name. Here sub version of this one at the live gig of Steve Winwood 1972 in Santa Monica:

Got more for you:

Does anybody else except FACMan and myself recall the "hammond organ wizard" Brian Auger?

Well, to refresh your memory (and as he is *not* dead and gone yet), here two pieces, one classic with Julie Driscoll (after working with Long John Baldry and Rod Stewart), the other fairly recent with some of the better musicians I know: Billy Cobham (my choice for best drummer ever) and "Jazz Fusion Guitar God" Frank Gambale, all musicians we won´t see (hear) around too much longer...:

Trinity (Julie Driscoll - also not dead´n gone, now Julie Tippets - & Brian Auger, 1968):
Road to Cairo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWh6xkVNPmw#normal)

Julie Tippets (married Keith Tippetts in the end) has a well going solo career and now looks like this:
(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/be/Julie_Tippetts.jpg/294px-Julie_Tippetts.jpg)

Today, Brian Auger does some of the best Jazzrock I know, here 2007 (has lost a bit physically as we oldies all :) ), gotta like Jazzrock probably to evaluate the kind of evolution he has completed, on the hammond in a great groovy piece from Billy Cobham´s "Spectrum" DRUM-N-VOICE-LIVE-TOUR 2007, give it a minute or so if you are not used to Jazz Fusion (I see the piece - w/o name, or if indeed w/, then "Walking in the Shadow" - as a hommage to the dead musical geniouses, as it quotes Zappa, Joe Zawinul from Weather Report, Mahavishnu Orchestra and others in kind of a medley, listen for yourself):
BILLY COBHAM - GAMBALE - BRIAN AUGER & NOVECENTO "LIVE" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5U-Fj_1D65g#normal)

BTW, anybody knows the lady on the bass? Spectacular, great, lighthanded and expressionist, but I won´t for the death of my family be able to recall her name...

Well I am going through a nostalgia phase and have been listening to some 1970s and 1980s New Zealand music, I think this would have have to rate as the best local band of the period (although by todays standards they are a little eccentric).

Nice! I had recently posted some Japanese Fusion also, Ke-isho Ohno, with his band JK-Soul he melts traditional - he is a master of the three string Shamisen (???) - music with modern funky jazz, a fusion type and an instrument our distiguhished members might not have heard about yet:

I got snubbed in another forum for my musical preferences, gotta vent off my irate feelings, so I will display some of the songs I had no chance to post under the rules there here instead:

Flamenco and Blues Fusion by some of the greatest guitar players the planet has seen:

Brothers Amador at it (at 15 and 17 yrs old, probably 1978, at least after Francos death, "negro music" was considered "un-spanish" before and forbidden):

Raimundo y Ramón Amador playing a Flamenco Blues (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pP7leqiX1FU#normal)

And, for contrast: Raimundo Amador (the younger guy to the left in the vid before) 30+ yrs later, 2010; old fart, but still almost perfect in melting Blues and Flamenco to somethin bigger - lower in volume, so you will have to turn up a bit (as the presenter of the program, Andreu Buenafuente, states after the song: "If my producer tells me again that music and tv don´t mix I will have him listen to this take 42 times in a row".... :) ).

For Jilly:

Did you folks know the gypsies came from India?

(http://indialucia.com/pool/110.jpg)

Around the Ninth Century, for some unknown reasons, thousands of inhabitants of the north-western part of India began to emigrate west. They set out from the territories presently occupied by the Punjab and Pakistan. In Persia they split, and one part went via Palestine, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco and through the Gibraltar Strait, finally arriving, already known as Gypsies, in the south of Moorish Spain. In this region, known as Al-Andalus (today: Andalucia), various cultures co-existed for hundreds of years. It was the only place where Gypsies, Jews, Catholic's and Muslims lived together for a long time. Each group had its own customs, music and instruments. After many years, in the beginning of the 19th Century, due to mutual influences and the mingling of all these elements, a mysterious and expressive type of music emerged. Today we know it as Flamenco.

Even with(out) bass speakers that don´t work anymore I can hear that the following is great fusion stuff, India and Andalucia melting into something interesting and bigger, just like Blues and Flamenco, all of them based on the 12 beat compass: Here a rumba mixing India and Spain, based on Flamenco guitar, sitar, tabla and cajón:

From http://www.psychefolk.com/Indialuca.html (http://www.psychefolk.com/Indialuca.html)
Quote
The 12 beat rhythm as one of the oldest rhythms in Indian music exisst also in flamenco (and is dominant, R.). While the disciplined Indian raga starts and ends with the recognisable beat with some stretched improvisation, flamenco puts in some extra rhythmical surprises. It also explaines how seguiryias, bulerías, tarantas, soleares or tangos are based upon the ragas bhairavi, bhairav or basant mukhari, and how the melismata and portamento used in Indian music are very close to flamenco but in a more complicated way, and with a wider range. Similarities with the flamenco dance can be found in the kathak style from the north of India. (Small edits to the text and highlighting by me R.)

Rattler, please don't over-dramatize.   You were not snubbed on my fourm at all.  The category you chose was nice, for the 8 song game.  But no one knew a single song in that category,  So it brought the game to a halt,  I had to change the the category, or it would have been here for ever.  I'm so sorry that you are hurt over this,  it was not my intention, and I thought you would understand,  I would do the same if anyone else chose something that there were either no songs for, or noone knew of any and it came to a standstill.

Another long forgotten gem from my vinyl section, 1985, the music starts about 10 seconds into the video, your speakers and comp are ok, don´t worry... (those vinyls need a bit head way). Today as dancable as then, enjoy the fantastic bass roll with the volume turned up, vinyl is not digi and not as dynamic.

...in Gent, my town of birth...

I had figured already that you had something Spanish about you, now we have it clear by evidence. Genes!  hihi

After 1500 Ghent was the (summer) capital of the Spanish Empire, Charles V. was born there, and his son, Philip II established Catolicism there again during the Religious Wars. Later, under the archdukes Albert and Isabella, Gent flourished almost to old grandness (at one time before it had been the 2nd biggest city of Europe after Paris). I have been there quite a few times, the Spanish life style still is vastly impregnated on the city, completely different from Brussels or Antwerp (which is not far away, but at the time mentioned was on the "other" side of the frontier).

Ghent has indeed a VERY rich history

National Geographic Traveler Magazine places Ghent third in its global ranking of authentic destinations!

National Geographic Traveler Magazine is a reference for anyone who enjoys travel, fine photography and insightful journalism. At the end of November 2008, the magazine published a top 109 of the most authentic destinations worldwide. The historic city centre of Ghent ranked third!

What a surprise! Not that Ghent is an authentic, real city filled with excellently preserved buildings, monuments and art treasures, but the real surprise is that the city is recognised for these qualities! And there’s more. Ghent is praised for its “brilliant mix of a wonderful past and a contemporary, vibrant city”.

Ghent can boast the title of highest-ranking city, being preceded only by Austria’s Wachau Valley and the area around the Rideau Canal in Ontario, Canada. In Ghent’s wake are prestigious destinations such as Lyon, York, Dublin, Istanbul, Cape Town, Munich and many others.

Old St Elizabeth Beguinage: Ghent has no fewer than three authentic beguinages, all of which are recognised by UNESCO as world heritage sites. This is one of them. Though it is no longer walled and thus became part of the city, it still has a unique atmosphere. Furthermore, it is now more than ever a place of religious tolerance since it contains no fewer than four different churches: Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant and Anglican.


Quote
Graslei and Korenlei: Ask ten inhabitants of Ghent what the most beautiful place in their city is and nine will answer the Graslei. Today this medieval port with its unique row of historical buildings, which are reflected in the long river, is the meeting place par excellence. Young and old, inhabitant and visitor, everyone meets on one of the many café patios or simply by the water. This is the thriving heart of the inner city.
The house of the Grain Weighers, the Guildhall of the Free Boatmen, the Spijker… every house on the Graslei has its own history. Together they form the story of the incredible blossoming of Ghent’s economy during the Middle Ages. On the other side of the water is the Korenlei. All that remains of some of the original buildings is the outer walls! Behind them is a brand new hotel.

Myself, I am bariton, halfway between (but closer to first) bass and tenor, nothing as cleansing as feeling the vibrations of your own voice in unison/counterpart with other human voices.

Here what I had to chime in to today, didnt find anything really close despite being hundreds of versions of the song on the net, so take it just as an idea:

NOTE following lyrics present the standard *male* approach to broken-heart disaster, you gals I am sure have different ideas... Feel free to interpret it from your female POV, same thing in the end, methinks ("...better off w/o a husband..."):

Quote
... verbal introduction, 1975 style...., and then:

...all my friends are married
every Tom and Dick and Harry
you must be strong
to go it alone
here's to the bachelors
and the bowery bums
and those who feel that they're the ones
who are better off without a wife

I like to sleep until the crack of noon
midnight howlin' at the moon
goin' out when I wanto, comin' home when I please
I don't have to ask permission
if I want to go out fishing
and I never have to ask for the keys

never been no Valentino
had a girl who lived in Reno
left me for a trumpet player
didn't get me down
he was wanted for assault
though he said it weren't his fault
well the coppers rode him right
out of town

(chorus)

selfish about my privacy
as long as I can be with me
we get along so well I can't believe
I love to chew the fat with folks
and listen to all your dirty jokes
I'm so thankful for these friends
I do receive

I don't go to church on Sunday
I don't get on my knees to pray
Don't memorize the books of the Bible
I got my own special way...

I know Jesus loves me
(and I have to say) Maybe just a little bit more
I fall down on my knees every Sunday
At Zerelda Lee's candy store...

Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Well, it got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied...

Well I don't want no Abba Zabba
And I don't want no Almond Joy
There ain't nothing better
Suitable for this boy
Well it's the only thing
That can pick me up
I say it is better than a cup of gold
I say only a chocolate Jesus
Can satisfy my soul

(Banjo Solo)

When the weather gets rough
And it's whiskey in the shade
It's best to wrap your savior
Up in cellophane
He will flow like the big muddy
But that's ok
Pour him over ice cream
For a nice parfait
Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Good enough for me
Got to be a chocolate Jesus

Well it's got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus

Thanks,  Rattler, that's very sweet of you.    :congrats:

I'm still struggling with church,  but I can't find a way out.  If I don't go then I get a call, and then I get to feeling bad and then the next Sunday, I'm there.  I find it very hard to let people that I like so much, down.

Here's a nice relaxing one.  One that I remember from some  years back, while driving in my car, on a hot summers day:

What, you forget what a door looks like? Seriously, we all have the power to make these decisions, you make yours when you give in to the self imposed guilt. I think you are not ready to be out, or you already would be. Thats my existential input, worth exactly what you paid for it...

If only the guilt was all self-imposed, I could live with that.

Guilt is always self imposed, that is , even when others suggest guilt, one need not take it on to themselves. And any who would consciously do such to you, have their own agenda, and while they may think it in your best interests to do so, your reaction on this thread indicates it is not so. Gather up your strength and look into your heart, I suspect you will recognize there is nothing wrong with choosing your own times and means to communicate with your spiritual guide.

David Crosby - Song With No Words (Tree With No Leaves) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BE7s0RjktQ#lq-lq2-hq-vhq)

The first time I heard this song was while hitchhiking back from a camping trip down near Big Sur, a guy had it playing in his van when he picked us up, I guess that makes it another piece of music that makes up the soundtrack of my life....

Anne Clark - Killing Time (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfiBNkNB1cc#lq-hq)

Quote
Stumbling words and stuttering lips
Make the sentence complete
A death sentence complete

Create hell our of hopelessness
Confirm the failure of it all

Falling and calling
Falling and crawling
A Stick in the ground scratches your name
A scream in the darkness is searching
Again and again

Watching eyes wait for sadeness to rise
True superstitions combine and thicken
This poison that reaches my Soul
This terror that blackens my Soul

I must smile at your strategy
And laugh at your plan
And the execution of it all

Like death itself love is rotting inside of me
But there'll be no protection for you - you cannot hide me

I am cold on a bed of ice
But like seasons I know it will pass
It will always return again though
A Summer of love is a momentary and transient thing

Winter will always return again

Thanks,  Rattler.  Lovely song.

Music doesn't seem to be on the forefront of my mind lately.   But here's one that I heard on the radio today:

I will always love you, by Dolly Parton:


DOLLY PARTON - I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuZO1iT4kD0#lq-lq2-hq)


"I Will Always Love You"

If I
Should stay
I would only be in your way
So I'll go
But I know
I'll think of you every step of
the way

And I...
Will always
Love you, oohh
Will always
Love you
You
My darling you
Mmm-mm

Bittersweet
Memories
That is all I'm taking with me
So good-bye
Please don't cry
We both know I'm not what you
You need

And I...
Will always love you
I...
Will always love you
You, ooh
 

I hope
life treats you kind
And I hope
you have all you've dreamed of
And I wish you joy
and happiness
But above all this
I wish you love

And I...
Will always love you
I...
Will always love you

... and then I run into !GREAT! muzack I had never ever heard of (not even the artist), a mystery that will need investigating...

Well, it happened today, ran into this tune in an advertisment about "Championes" (I was actually looking for an ironing version of "We are the Champions" in Spanish), and got hit by the subtle groove and the (not so) subtle lyrics, the cool and laid back yet dancable layout (took me two hours of research for the tune after having seen the ad).

By now probably all of you know that I am a fan for lyrics, groove and arrangements (http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/the-lounge-get-a-beer-go-off-topic/the-omnipresent-currently-playing-%28music%29-thread/msg2147/#msg2147), what only a fewer number here know is that I love relaxed but funky dance music (it has to fit my black tuxedo and bow tie in "Barracuda" on a christmas eve, (imagining) drifiting effortlessly over the dance floor with a GT in one and a joint in the other hand without spilling a drop or bogarting, simply "cool" GROOVE :) )

Well, this one has all of the latter, what a nice tune!

To all the ladies I have ever loved or that ever have loved me (and also to those where the two thingies happened to co-incide), enjoy (and only a few actually slapped me with a frying pan for hanging out with the boys... Ain´t love great?  :D )

Hi Ratt, LOL, after my divorcing proccess (still on it) has been easy to contact females, of course I did not loved anyone. Since 5 months I have a partner, a typical "andaluza", so pretty, 8 years younger than me. I live her and she lives me, sometimes I think she´s more in love with me than me with her, but she divorced 3 years ago and I haven´t finished yet, so...I think I have a long way to be in real love with anybody, injuries are not still ok, not because I do love my ex, but because she is trying to fuck my arse so much that I am on defensive way all time.

Now a song...for enjoying or not

Knowing your rare preferences I am going to use a bioshit or whatever free adaption of classic Pantera theme FUCKING HOSTILE

Pantera - Fucking Hostile (Biochemical Mix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqz_vGzbhmE&feature=related#lq-hq)

And also a quite paranoid band I like sometimes

ROFL, if anybody can make me smile....

Wasn´t it you who once sent me a UN dircective Spanish Soldiers should follow when talking to foreigners/higher (I think I qualify as foreigner, no? :) )? I did not save it, but with its hilarious-but-oh-so-true content it sounds like now might be the time to release it to the public so nobody gets wrong ideas about the educational level of the Standard Spaniard...  xangel

Haven´t listened to all songs yet, but "Fucking Hostile"....? Only one version (aay...! the Blues again!) makes it into my book, guess I am a bit more romantic and old fashioned....

Tomorrow more (I am angry, and it has to to with Spain, Toros and Catalunya, but it is 0209 and I have to get up to go to my first day working in 4 hrs, and it will be with a hangover, and I will be suffering at 35 degrees at plain sun, and I really should be old enough to not get myself into such situations...  hdbng).

Omg that smile he does at? 0:28 just makes my heart melt.

Indeed, that is the difference: No "smile throwing" (at 1:25 in the 2nd vid) 2006. And, I might be mistakend, bue does he really chew a gum while singing in this one?   ???

-snip-
Here the very rare original 1981 version of the first song based on slap bass that ever made #1 in the charts (NOTE how he never touches the bass with fingers, it is all "slapping", and it carries the base of the song´s rhythm, the drums are just painting it out with snare and HiHats)



Level 42 - Love Games (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGNhNlvZPls#normal)

And here, 25 yrs later, he has made it an art, finally, *much* better version funk wise, but for some strange reason I prefer the older version: More soul: Check his hand in this one also, in ´81 he was "playing" it, in 2006 he was "working" it...:

Hey, Jilly, you are right on track!
Interesting that, Rattler.   iconclap[/url]



Those guys from "Mundstuhl" are personal history for me:

Living in the south of Frankfurt (but feeling "Frankfurter") we had this lyceum where, in the late´60s, lots of things were going on:

With the Vietnam war on the way, the German student revolution also (Joschka Fischer, our ex Foreign Minister, was one of the guys I followed with my 15 years into battler versus the -still- Hitler minded police forces, only to find him retreating when it was time and myself in prison... here on the right how I knew him, on the left as our foreign ministerÖ(http://www.textberater.com/wp-content/uploads/joschka-final1-300x180.jpg))

we admired the guys that were a few years older than ourselves and had "vision" of a future German state where our parents generation, who, in the 60s, were stilll telling us: "But, Hitler was not so bad, he built the motorways!") would be silenced and the true German character would come out that had nothing to do with Auschwitz...

Henni Nachtheimer was one those guys, maybe 2-3 years older than myself, ans uch a bad student that he had to do "extra rounds" repeating classes for failing exams that he ended up in my class... and instantly became an idol for me: Straighaway communist, he and his friends said what we all thought, did not buckle in front of our teachers, and developed an own lifestyle...

OTOH, from todays POV they were not really vicious rebels, we all came from the same Hessian and German culture, in our case mixed with the culture the US G.I.s stationed in and around Frankfurt fed us with (Wolfman Jack, Good Morning Vietnam, etc...). On weekends we would smoike and drink uop, see soccer in the Eintracht Wald Stadium (Eintracht Frankfurt was  - and is - my club) go fight for the revolution, during the week we all were more or less (the younger anyway) studying away and behaving decently.

When we moved out of house some years later (at that time everybody left home at around 16 with the end of school), the same group structure prevailed in our little 30.000 peoples village right at the outsckirts of "Frankfurt City", we either lived in Rodgau or Neu-Isenburg, felt belonging to Hessia and Frankfurt as its capital, and were all rather intelligent, well educated, and *left*. With the times also went the desire to listen to and play music (this thread is still a part of this basic instinct we were bred with), so we all at least played one instrument and joined in various bands around the region. My band was called "Summit", a US G.I. on harmonica and a German guitar genius as front man for sincere Blues, and you dont even find anything on youtube about them. But, the guys around Henni had their band also, it was called the "Rodgau Monotones", and in the late ´70s the had a real big hit that made it to become even for some time the "Eintracht Frankfurt" inofficial hymn: "Erbarmen!... zu spät.... Die Hessen kommen!" (Have Mercy!... Too late.... The Hessians are coming!"). Here from 1974, nothing to see, but great to listen to, groovy and funky, and a synonym for what we felt and how we lived then, the first paragraph translated:

Quote
Was kommt denn da für'n wüster Krach / What is this strange noise coming

aus Frankfurt, Darmstadt, Offenbach? / from Frankfurt, Darmstadt and Offenbach?

Was lärmt in Kassel, Giessen und Wiesbaden bloss so gnadenlos? / What does not let you sleep in Kassel, Wiesbaden and Giessen?

Was tut den Bayern, Schwaben, Friesen gründlich jeden Spass vermiesen? / What takes the fun away from the guys from Bavaria, Suebia and Frisia?

Was tobt seit vielen Wochen schon? Ne schaurig-schöne Invasion! / What has going since weeks? A nice but horrible Invasion:

Erbarmen - zu spät /Have Mercy, too late:
die Hessen kommen! / The Hessians are coming!
Erbarmen - zu spät
die Hessen kommen!



Rodgau Monotons - Die Hesse komme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaKEvK3gjzg#normal)

And here on the soccer field in 2008, nothing ever gets forgotten!:

Erbame zu Spät die Hesse komme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Hg1f9yO7oA#normal)

On the other side we all were very deep itno politics and activism, first agains our parents generation with their fascist attitude, and, after Afghanistan (Soviet Invasion) versus the equally dictatorial communists.

A good example here from "Badesalz", again Henny and the two guys you saw in Mundstuhl video explaining (satire, of cause, mid ´80s) why you do not want to go to neither a Greek, Turkish or Italian bar, but rather to a *true* German restaurant, you might not understand the words, but the pix say it all, "Der Germanenkrug" = "The Germanic Restaurant": "...You,... yes, you!... You have had a hard working day, now you want to eat something... But where do you wan to go to? To a greek?... etc... No, you want a true German restaurant, with German Comrades, German women, German songs, and where German tradition still prevails!...!.)

We had a bar in Neu-Isenburg as a meeting point in the late 70s where we met when the police came off our back )it was outside Frankfurt jurisdiction)  and where all this stuff was cooked up, I always remember how we listened to the infamous Goebbels speech about the total war, later Henny & Co. made a song of it, creative stuff way ahead of musical times then... Here a 2007 house remix without pics, but stating everything we felt at that time, and still as impressive as it was then for me:

Quote
Wollt ihr den totalen Krieg / Do you want total war?
(Fresse, da vorne! / Shut up, over there!)
Gereizt / Irritated
Das Deutsche Volk, G-Unit / The German People, G-Unit
Das Deutsche Volk, G-Unit / The German People, G-Unit
Das Deutsche Volk, G-Unit / The German People, G-Unit
Das Deutsche Volk, totalen Krieg / The German People, total war
Das Deutsche Volk, / The German People
Das Deutsche Volk, / The German People
Ich frage Euch!!! / I am asking you!!!
Vertraut ihr dem Führer?! / Do you trust the Führer?!
(Seh ich so aus, Du Drecksack / Do I look like, son of a bitch?)
Wir wollen... ein Volk sein.../ We want to be... one people
Wir wollen... ein Volk sein.../ We want to be... one people
Meine Kameraden! / My comrades!
Wir wollen... ein Volk sein.../ We want to be... one people
Meine Kameraden! / My comrades!
Wir wollen... den totalen Krieg! / We want.... total war!
Meine Kameraden! / My comrades!
Adolf Hitler‚
Der Führer der Deutsche Jugend! / The leader of the German youth!
Deutschland! / Germany!
Und was wir tun / And what we do
Totalen Krieg! / Total war!

Und das Deutsche Volk, Sieg Heil!


.... and so on, the original text:

joseph goebbels/rudolf hess/adolf hitler vs badesalz (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxKVQn6w7DA#normal)

English came natural for all of us, with all the G.I.s around, here one that every English speaker will understand: Those guys were super creative, fun to be with, using every bit of new tech that came out (employing vid style of the upcoming music stations), did cross overs in the ´90s, like with reggae, here with a famous German singer who was unable to follow the script and could not move his lips synchorene, as the subtitles state various times, from `96, "All we are smoking!/Smoke on the water!/Give me dope, Joana!":

All this said, coming back to my best memories, Rodgau Monotones: "Give me all your loving" (in their own special way, there was a revival concert in Frankfurt, 2008, this one is from ´91 IIRC):

"La Goutte au Nez" (The drop from the nose):

I heard this interesting band last year on a parade in Palma, because that is their primary form of music: A - slightly different - marching band.

The other side - all are more than escellent musicians - is the stage, and their show, asnd I had a chance to see something of it tonight on telly.

I cannot even find a name for thier music, it is a mix of about everything, they do not stick to one style, not even in the same piece: Tribal, Fanfare, Funk, Indy, you name it yourself.

With the diversity of their music, there is something for every one of the residents on this thread, just three examples of al their sides and facets, I guess the first will be the taste of FACMan (kind of tribal reggae?). The second is a mosaique of takes from their marching side over one piece, the third modern jazz rock of the finest over a running bass that sounds like something from "The Romantic Warrior"...

Enjoy!

Tonight I was sitting in the bar of an Italian friend from Genova, when he remembered (and I rediscovered for me) singer/songwriter/jazzer/balladist Paolo Conte (also from Genova), for me one of the few musical true geniuses still alive. Welol known in Germany, almost nobody knows him in Spain (despite may live acts in the ´80s in Barcelona), something I cannot really understand as the Sopanish at least get a rough idea *about* what he is singing whereas as German in the ´70s I had no clue and just got captured by his unique composition style and voice.

As a crosspost (sorry, but got carried away) over various forums, here one of his classics (partially subtitled in Inglés), about how to leave a love, certainly 25+ years old despite in this vid being of a recent performance, his voice and how he treats the piano (I always suspected that the piano represents his woman/women?), gives me goose bumps still..:

Paolo Conte - Come Away with Me (Vieni via con me: It´s wonderful, good luck, my baby!) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44wqc2gbbfY#ws)

Another of his classic tunes (I think the first I have ever heard by him, and the one that called me to attention), a display of all his unique art of composition and arrangement that makes you feel light and heavy at the same time; rather strange at first impression, but until the end of the song Conte will have planted a melody in your head you will never in the future be able to forget and allways again recognize anywhere/when you hear it... *This* is what makes a genius (in music), IMHO...

I have posted it in two versions, performed two decades apart, you will note what I meant with what I wrote before: The 2nd version uses the s ame instruments as the first, but in a completely different arrangement: The older Conte becomes more bitter and agressive, pointed rhythm this time not taken by the bass but by himself and his ever more hard working piano... Still, the theme and melody - you recognize it instantly, it has been imprinted forever in your brain...  hihi

So, listen to it at your own risk, might be that you will here a strange theme in your mind for the next days whenever everything around you becomes quiet...

I had the same idea, and only have known him for this one song and considered him a one hit wonder (and hence had forgotten about him totally).

Tonight, though, I met some musicians (British, most) who held him in great respect and also some girls that chimed in and remembered whole albums with other songs - they could even sing them right off the bar stool - that completely went by me (check for yourself in youtube, he did produce more songs).

Anyway, I remember having enjoyed the ONE song then and dancing to it, and I can see he has at least learned to perform it more powerful now at 60, FWIW: ... Here in Spain we say "Time does not pardon anybody", hard to recognize the same performer in the two vids, but that is probably the way the cookie crumbles with age:

FACMan., you are really along my line in almost everything, but, still, I guess we should meet once to appreciate the differences :)

Anyway, if we as the Western Coalition have taken the right to destroy a country and its civilization, it is only fair to give something back, e.g. to feature one of my favorite musicians, which happens to be from Iraq, so that his fame can spread:

Ilham Al Madfei (and, to my shame, I do not even know if I write it ok in Latin letters), with his song Khuttar.

Dont really ask me what it is about iun detail, I can read Arab and even (sort of) understand some of the local dialects, but this one resists my translation attempts, maybe the collective wisdom of this forum can help?

I heard that song years ago in Amman (Jordan) on a trip with one of my Arab Musicican friends, and was really impressed by the rhythm and style (this man is not really young), but even they could not tell me what it really meant as there seem to be a lot of words that are only clear to a certain region. Here what I make from the lyrics (and it is just a part that I can translate), for me id does not mater, it is the song to dance to at night with someone you cherish, and the meaning does not have such great importance after all. I love the song, whatever it means... That there are some Spaniards entering Flamenco guitars, of cause, helps  :). I have always admired our Arab influences in every part of life here, "Arab/arab" has only very lately become a word connected to offensive meaning...

Anyway, got inspired to post this one by a post on Jillys forums music thread ( http://sunnyds.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=music&action=display&thread=87&page=4 (http://sunnyds.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=music&action=display&thread=87&page=4) )  about what music to listen to on a beach, fits from my POV.

The joy is visiting us,
I light the candels to appreciate.

I am afraid that he would pass through the neighborhood
and then spray the neighbours with tears

Oh my heart,
where comes the sadness from?

(hader al hader ??) is lifted
You are always hurting with pain
Crying with so many tears
Your rainbow turns out to be an illusion
lifted over the sky

Dont give me the sadness voice
The sadness voice can be heard to be false.

Your night is really angry
Dont wake up in the night
You bear the little hope left
that stars can become alive

Post by: Koen on 5 September 2010, 17:26:45
what can I say?

I was already pleased to hear that Anne was coming to Diest, a nothing-at-all-important small town in Belgium at 5 km's from my home.
As I already wrote before, the location is a small outdoor auditorium in the middle of a small parc. Unique and cosy.

I went well before time with in my hands a bunch of viny covers.... you never know what could happen...

We arrived at 8PM with 'mini-gate' opening at 9PM and the concert starting around 10PM

Right at our arrival we spotted Anne sitting beside her camper giving an interview.... my knees started shaking....

after the interview she disappeared backstage but I had time on my side so I waited and when she returned I dared to ask 'Anne, do you have a moment?'

She did, 15' long, we had a nice talk about our pets, music, work and her career...she also signed my collection of vinyl covers!

to make the whole experience better the show was also great, all songs in new uptempo beats...the small crowd enjoyed it!

after the show there was a small 'shop' where the fans could buy stuff and I managed to enlarge my collection a bit further.... a couple of minutes later she came to that shop and signed the goodies, she also was willing to pose for some pictures!

so now you understand why I'm floating on a pink cloud at the moment...I'm a fan for over 20 years now so a night like yesterday...well...you know

Anne Clark is one of *the* gigs!

Anyway, also had my music night last night:

SYtartiong out iwth Elton John and Andrea Bocelli in Palma (25000 spectators, a real blast despite not being my music), and then later our village festival with all the well known gentlemen of this Music Genious Village that I mentioned before in this thread, from Molly Duncan over Pete Frampton to Bombolo.

One extra were Big&Rich, three of the guys joined the crowd live here )they have taken residenca a few month ago), and they had the Spanish dance orchestra perform some of their classics with them, with the help of Jeff singing (stby 25 secs into the vid to hear the song, rest is INTRODUCTION):

Horses - Save a Horse (ride a cowboy) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOLCqs8VXcM#noexternalembed)

Anyway, at 0700 the Guardi Civil finally stopped the music and we all had a coffe and went home, big fun overall!

The sound of my youth (listening under the covers at night, my father did not like "negro music", so it got banned from home in the open), but this man, long dead now (and severly missed by my generation),  really showed me (on AFN Frankfurt) how to present music, a dream for me ever since.

He did what he liked, no matter what the producers said, played music that was either well known and liked, or hated, just as he thought fit, took it all in and spit it out, and then all with this special voice of his: You could not grab one song of the hit parade, as he was constantly taliking/singing along, hilarious interviews over the phone, but a deep (the deepest!) dedication to music, new, old and revolutionary...

He is the real reason I became a music freak...  8)

What a memory jogger.
My first exposure to the Wolfman came during my early USMC training at Camp Pendleton, Ca (between LA & San Diego) in 1968. He soon grew to be a favorite of many young Marines preparing for deployment to WESTPAC (Vietnam). Though he had been around for many years before my discovery, his signal wasnt strong enough to reach us in Northern California.

Electric Light Orchestra - Roll Over Beethoven (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLNR4xfh1Qc#)

Quote
An early member of 1970s British rock group ELO was killed in a "freak" accident when his van was crushed by a bale of hay, police said.

Cellist Mike Edwards, 62, died instantly in the accident on the A381 in Halwell, Devon, on Friday.

Police believe the 600kg bale fell from a tractor on nearby farmland before rolling on to the road.

Mr Edwards was identified using photos and YouTube footage. He was with the Birmingham band from 1972 to 1975.

The musician, who lived in Totnes, was a founder member of the classical Devon Baroque orchestra.
Friend 'devastated'

"He was simply the nicest guy and a brilliant musician," Angus Gordon, the chairman of Devon Baroque, told BBC News.

"He was capable of turning his hand to any type of music at all.

"He taught the cello and his incredible patience and encouragement - even with the slowest of students - made him a very good teacher.

"I'm devastated. He was a really likeable person and such good fun that I keep thinking this has been a horrible mistake."

Mr Edwards was due to play with the medieval folk band Daughters of Elvin in Totnes on Saturday evening.

Officers believe he swerved into another vehicle as his van was struck by the bale at about 1230 BST.

The other driver was not hurt.

Initially police had difficulty in tracking down Mr Edwards' relatives but a spokesman said officers had now traced his brother David in Yorkshire.
'Crowd favourite'

The Health and Safety Executive is investigating what has been described as a "farm accident".

Insp Andy Hamilton, of Devon and Cornwall police, said: "Although it would appear to be a freak incident, we've got to thoroughly investigate the circumstances before we can draw any conclusions."

ELO was formed as the Electric Light Orchestra in 1971 by Jeff Lynne and Roy Wood.

The band, who played rock and pop music with classical overtones, sold more than 50 million records worldwide and had numerous hit singles and albums in the UK and the US.

Mr Edwards, who trained at the Royal Academy of Music, was in the line-up for ELO's first live concert.

A tribute on the Face the Music website said: "Mike quickly became a crowd favourite with his exploding cello and rather unique solo party piece that involved playing the cello with a grapefruit."

Talking about his time with ELO in a rare interview last year, Mr Edwards said the stunts were simply a way to make the band "more entertaining".

Mr Edwards' friend and Devon Baroque colleague Jasper Solomon, who also lives in Totnes, said: "Mike's talent was his musicality.

"He could range over all genres from classical to jazz, modern to medieval renaissance.

"He lived for his music and it showed."

Take this then, not dance but dancable ballads, and my ballad pop revelation of 2010 (which means I discovered them this year, they have been around since the 90s apparently, but I never even had a hunch of a blip on my musical radar), great lyrics to inventive music, best of their genre atm methinks:

Still, as far as dance goes, I prefer the all time funky and groovy classics (they have the advantage that, when played slower, they also make great bkgnd muzac for a dinner or such, as can be seen in the difference of the 2nd to the first version here):

I know Jazz is not everybodys thingy, but I now find myself listening for the fifth time in a row to this song (from iTunes, in better quality than here, but what the heck), and it seems to transport a kind of calm I rarely feel, kind of centers me.

I have known the song for a long time, am a great Miles Davis fan also, but tonight seems the night that it finally hit home.
I recommend to at least give it a few minutes of the 9 it runs when youre in a mood to find peace and greatness in your surroundings or at quarrel with what is up (though, as with me, you might not feel its magic the first time).

As one of the commentors of the youtube track said and I only now understand:

Quote from: TheFutureIsBold
...just takes me a million miles into myself, a voyage into my being on a planet thats part of a solar system? thats part of a galaxy floating anonymously amongst everything that ever existed...and here I am in person feeling and witnessing it all...

And another one of the seemingly indestructibles has gone to the better meadows: Solomon Burke died at 70 on Amsterdam Airport. He was scheduled to perform in a club there, but never made it.

Changing musical theme completely, a song I ran over today on the radio, had forgotten it but remember it had left a mark for some reasons (probably having to do with my 100.000s km on motorways in deep night over the years), lets see who remembers them, "Bell, Book and Candle"...? Even if you do, you wont remember it was a German band....?

The vid here from a girl (Handle: "Afraidofwhatmightbe") who seriously seems to plead to be rescued of whatever nightmares (that was 2008, though), as she reminds me of - and could be -  my daughter, maybe anyone of the gents here ready to take on the task, investigation and responsibility?

Anyway, for me it was always the part after 0:48 into the vid that made the song:

Quote

As I  managed to repair a few parts of this thread tonight, here a post that was meant as a reply in another thread but I think is better going to this one (partially because AFAIK it is e.g. the most ever covered song in the world, part of video games, movie music, etc. ):

Reminds me of this nice song, the lyrics in the last two verses and the intersections by author in the vid (after 1:18 min) I hope make clear this is not meant to be offensive to anyone in person here, rather a look on mankind in general at this time by Misters Fripp and Lake:

Poets' starving children bleed

Rattler,
  I got your PM.   I've been borrowing a computer of late, as my rig blew up  :o  and I've got to rearrange finances to get a new one.  That and real life have gotten in the way of my posting.  Sorry about that.  Until I get all that sorted out, I'll be around intermittently.

  I liked the Leningrad Cowboys version of "Stairway to Heaven."  They were not far off the original.  I don't know if they were trying to stay close.  The hair was very "Flock of Seagulls" like.  I never really cared too much for that song, partially because it was played a lot on the radio, due to every young girl asking for it as a request.  It seemed like every girl/woman who heard it immediately declared it as their most favorite song ever.  Of course that isn't the case, but growing up, it certainly seemed like it.

  I much prefered "Kashmir" or "Trampled Under Foot."  Now those were really classic Led Zeppelin.  That whole Physical Grafitti album (yes, album, I still have lots of vinyl around, so I am dating myself in that respect!!) was amazing too.  It seemed like every song on it was really great.

  Now, I must comment on your Bell Book and Candle submission.  As usual, you post so many familiar artists, older ones, and a very varied selection as well.  As you so succintly note, enjoy...or not.  I don't care for some,  really enjoy others, and have my eyes and ears opened to many that I was not aware of.

  "Rescue Me" was okay. I wasn't overwhelmed by it.  Then I thought I would listen to "Louise," and I was stunned.  It was amazing.  The piano part was so moving and evocative.  The lyrics were fine too, but I mainly key on the musical arrangement.  It was quite hypnotic.  Thank-you very much for making me aware of the group.


  Along that same line, another group has done the same song.  They are Eisblume, and apparently also German   Do you know what the story is on that?  Eisblume's version seemed even more mesmerizing.  Who was first, as they appear to be completely different groups?  Just thought I would check to see if you knew.

                                           Thanks,
                                                Heinrich505

Yes, "Eisblume" (Ice Flour) is a German Band, founded much later than "BBC" in 2007 IIRC, and they kind of bought the rights from them, as they did a lot of their songs as cover ("rescue me" also).

More adapted to the 21st century, it seems, BBC was from 1994 or so, and (even physically, Birrs son being a founding band member) a veteran German band "Puhdys" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puhdys) offspring (those still very active, actually, but I never liked them):

Title: Belgian music
Post by: Koen on 16 October 2010, 18:28:52
tried this on another forum but members weren't interested, seems that most people only want to see/hear music they know/love...
my idea about a musictopic is to share music, I want to 'teach' (ahum) people with music they DON'T know...
with this 1st post I go more then 20 years back with electronic music so probably unknown to most
try to feel the music where it was played, how it was played, to whom it was played

***********************************************

I want to share some Belgian music with you guys & girls, it will be a mix of all kinds of music, some your taste others not BUT...

I would appreciate if you would listen to it and try to take the music into your soul/body... the music will be from around 1985 and will end in 2010

It would be great if some of these Belgian artists would get some foreign fans who buy their stuff... the quality is HIGH and original!

first is a NewBeat classic: NewBeat was THE start for synth dancemusic, before techno/trance and others got popular... people were mostly high on whatever they could get in their hands....1 dancing was so popular that police were more inside than outside..

you should listen to this one with your eyes closed, preferrably with some alcohol or other stuff in your body  :P

quote from Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_beat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_beat)

Quote
Terminology
The term New Beat was first used in the USA during the early '80s. At the time, this New Beat music was a contemporary genre to Techno from Detroit and House from Chicago, although not intrinsically linked. The Americans at the time used the term to describe those music styles that they never heard before. It was the new beat of the time, the new sound, very different from Hi-NRG disco, New Wave, Synth Pop, Rap. The term was soon replaced by other terms, so virtually any USA hits once described as "New Beat" are today considered a part of another music style, most of the time simply House or Techno.

The second time that the term New Beat used, was in Europe. First, appeared in Belgium, around 1987, to describe a local music style that mainly developed out of 'Bodybeat' heralded by the early formation of Front 242 and other such acts as Praga Khan and Lords of Acid. When MTV Europe began in the summer of 1987, it brought the term to the UK. In the UK, the term New Beat was used in 1987–1988 for various local Acid house / Techno Rave productions, to point out that this was a new sound of dance music and a less commercial alternative to UK's Eurobeat. Eurobeat was at the time used in the UK for the Stock Aitken Waterman productions. Eventually, the term became mainstream, especially between the summer of 1989 and the summer of 1990, but faded fast after Euro House took over. Because of the relation of the "New Beat" and Acid house in the UK during 1988, the later commercial "New Beat" European productions, sported the Smiley as symbol of love in the British related markets. Various British "New Beat" productions, eventually migrated to the 'Bacalao' scene in Valencia Spain.

Before the term New Beat began to fade (during 1990-1991), it was used one last time to describe many Belgium and German dance groups like Technotronic, Snap!, Confetti's, The adventures of Stevie V, McSar & the Real McCoy and Twenty4Seven on the minor European (and related) markets (Greece, Spain, Italy, Turkey, Israel, Southern France). The term in this case used again like the way it used in USA almost a decade before to describe the overall "new" dance sound of the time and not so much a music style. It was generally used to fill the "gap" between 80s Euro disco and the 90s Euro-House).

USA fans of 90s Eurohouse (in the USA the term "90s Eurodance" is used), testify that the term New Beat was also used for a short while during the early 90s, to describe various early 90s imports on the USA market, like 2 Unlimited, Quadrophonia, T99, etc.

Definition

The New Beat sound originated in Belgium in the late 1980s, especially in 1987 and 1988.

The Belgian New Beat was an underground danceable music style, well known at clubs and discos in Europe. It is a local crossover of EBM, Acid and mid 80s underground House music. The 80s Dark Wave also became an aesthetic influence (especially Depeche Mode's videos from 1985-1989). At the time, EBM was popular in German speaking countries and The Netherlands, Acid / Acid Trance was popular in the UK, and House Music (in a 80s Eurodisco French twist) was popular in France. Belgium created this unique music sound, with huge underground success all over Europe.

Legend has it that the Belgian New Beat genre was invented in the nightclub Boccaccio in Destelbergen near Ghent when DJ Marc Grouls played a 45rpm EBM record at 33rpm, with the pitch control set to +8. The track in question was Flesh by A Split-Second.

In addition to A Split Second, the genre was also heavily influenced by other EBM acts such as Front 242 and The Neon Judgement, as well as the likes of Fad Gadget, Gary Numan and Anne Clark.

In 1989–1990, the genre spawned some short-lived sub-genres or successor genres Hard Beat and Schizzo - the latter being a techno-influenced style, considerably faster than the original slow new beat style.

The most commercially successful New Beat groups were Confetti's and The Lords of Acid, which had heavy airplay on the MTV Europe show "Party Zone". MTV Europe's VJ Steve Blame was a great fan of New Beat and through his position on MTV News, promoted the Belgium's New Beat sound through his reports.

Many Europeans consider New Beat as a forerunner of European House (Euro-House). Others consider "New Beat" to have been the first true European dance music style that had no Euro disco (Italo Disco - Eurobeat) influences. New Beat incorporated more Techno and Acid house influences, as opposed to the Euro disco influences of Euro House.



one of THE tracks is this one at the speed it was played in dancings:

Koen,

I am all into interesting music, and you posted a good part.

With all due respect (to you and all), touch your nose on how you yourself treat posts here:

Do you really think someone will be sitting in front of his comp,  listening to 30+ minutes music (that he might like or not) when following this thread (boy, I am happy you post this stuff, I like to be *taught* about music, even if I think I have heard it all there is always stuff that is new...)? I dont know, but I know if it hzad not been for a lazy Sunday night I would have missed the one track I liked...

As a photographer you obviously know where to reduce information to make impact, my suggestion is to let yourself be guided by this ability and just produce max two songs per day, more chance you will be listenend to in your "teachings".

Again, just to avoid confusion, I *like* input of stuff I never before listened to (and this thread does perfectly in the respect), but personally I got limited time and can only listen to so many songs...

I think one piece a day would get you more audience, but maybe that is just me, keep them songs coming... I always have the idea of this music channel, live broadcast, in mind, which songs will you chose as boss if you have half an hour a week? See where I am coming from?

OK, this said, you want to be taugh, and by nation, here goes Spanish music history, finally a reason to start my "Spanish Modern Music" rant!  smallclap

For starters here a vid fom probably the late 70s, it starts out with kids and was grabbbed on a normal weekend (Gipsy) family reunion.

Of the kids and the adolescents you see in the vid (all the adults incl. "Aunt Encarna", who is singing, should by now in their late 60s or early 70s if still alive...) at least 5 are the backbone today of modern Spanish rock/pop music, take a close look, I will later present them in detail.

Anyway, here goes: TVE in the 70s produced a documentary about the "Rock of the Gypsies", a normal family reunion with people like you and me, producing such music, that is Spain for you (father, uncle and aunt of Raimundo Amador guitar and voice):

The first part of what Tia Encarna (Aunt Encarna) is singing (actually she is constructing the lyrics on the fly, part of the art) translates as follows (NOTE: None of those was a professional musician, just a family composed of ppl like you and me):

Quote
Primavera de mis veinte años / In the spring of my twenties
relicario de mi juventud / reliquary of my youth
que yo he tenido un cariño ignorado / It is that I have had an ignored love
en el sueño yo se que eres tu / in my dream I know that it is "you"
Cuantas veces he rogado al destino / How often did I plead to destiny
ser escalvo de mi sueño azul / to be (able to be) slave of my wet (blue) dreams
ahora ser lo que cuesta un cariño / (by) now I know what it costs to find love
yo no puedo con mi mi? esclavitud / and I cannot live on anymore in (with) my slavery

quisiera amarte menos / I wanted to love you less
no verte más quisiera / Not to even see you anymore, I wanted
salvarme de esta hoguera / to save me from this household
que no puedo resistir / where I cannot resist.
no quiero este cariño / I dont want this love
que no me da descanso / that does not give me space to breathe
sin ti la paz no alcanzo / without you I dont find peace
y lejos no se vivir / but away from you I dont know to live
quisiera amarte menos / I really wanted to love you less
porque esto ya no es vida / because this is not life
mi vida esta perdia / mi life is a mess
de tanto quererte /for loving you so much
no se si necesito / I dont know whether I need to
tenerte o perderte / have you or lose you
yo se que te querio / I know that I love you,
más de lo que he podio / more than I was capable to bear...
quisiera amarte menos / I wanted to love you less
buscando en el olvido / looking for peace in forgeting you
y en vez de amarte menos / but instead of loving you less
te quiero mucho más / I love you much more...


Here the TVE documentary from Franco times (with the before mentioned kids that later revolutionized Spanish Rock/Pop, NOTE the exlamaton of somebody "La Pata Negra" which 10 yrs later made the name of the most impactive band ever in Spain after the dictatorship). This aunty truly is a lady *I* would like to meet even in her 70s, what stories she could share...!? :

Tia encarna " Quisiera amarte menos" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvjt0EQ5uc8#ws)

What a great sense of music, rhythm, and family, all there to take, smiles all over the faces, a deep satisfaction of joining voices, a well where only better things could spring off, the feeling I had when singing in the choir, and then I see it in this land I did not know before, and it is not even religious but RL...!

That is Spain for you, we still - music wise - live from the energy released at this barbecue (of a "pata Negra" pig) afternoon til today.

Sorry its not electronic, more to come...

 ;D ... I did post 3 videos but these 3 were only about 2 songs so I did it within your adviced limits  hihi

and yes, maybe it comes over wrongly when we/I use the word 'teach' or so but that's not how it's intended, I just feel that people mostly only listen to what they know... which is perhaps 10% of what is out there...  :-\

and sure.... right about those important music ages between 15-20 there was an overwhelming mass of electronic music near me so I am influenced by it where other people aren't  ::)

NP, mate... I know how we all tick... Some more, some even more so....  :D

Here goes on the requested teaching about national music (I guess ppl who go teaching also understand listening?), more  Spanish stuff, from the same barbecue afternoon that I talked about in my last post...

A 14 yrs old kid there, not having anything better to do (but being the best guitarist of the family), plays a guitar with a "Black Foot" (Pata Negra) leg of the pork that just got barbecued...; again, the moment when something special was born, and, as it was ´70s when others fought in Vietnam, there today we have vids that documented this historic moment that sort of set up modern Spanish music until today).

Actually the kid (Raimundo Amador) was not the main act but quite in the background, when the TVE crew grabbed the event it was more for the uncle, who had slaughtered and prepared the pig and was prominent with his "I slaughter any pig" dance moves that are so typicall for Southern Spain and for being an Andaluz Gypsy, truly no woman can resist this prepotency (in the good sense, of course), nobody at that time could know or precict (hats off to the journo who obviously did!  hatsoff) that this kid just a few years later would invent what today is known as "Spanish Rock" and at the same time revolutionize the way people looked at music overall (chronologically, this vid was before the before posted "Tia Encarna" song...):

sorry? you really wanna tease me  ;D

again, it's unimaginable that in the 'cold' countries people enjoy and dance with the music like this...

I do try to share my love for music but it's hard to find people here that enjoy music, that are interested... here in the colder countries we have a TV-mentality... which leaves with nothing... parents don't give music edudation to their children and this leads to new generations who only enjoy music in their cars or the disco... sad but true

I'm planning to invite some guys from work at home for a music session.... along with beers, whiskey and schnabbels  hihi

just while doing my other TA personality work watch a nice report on TV, called "Mapa Sonoro" (Sounding Map), a monthly kind of road movie showing whats going on in the Spanish movie scene through interviews with musicians, alsways coupled with a song.

For those who speak spanish the whole thing might be interesting (hey! you get to see todays Spain: Madrid, Albacete and Barcelona in this order, and then also there are some interesting songs...), for those who don´t, I just want to remind you of the kid I presented in a recent post playing the guitar with a pig hoof, and who later revolutionized Spanish take on music in general:

In this months report, after other musicians (Tulsa - impressive as always! - , Joaquin Pasqual) this now 50+ years old Raimundo Amador is shown in his latest project with Howe Gelb (an US musician), playing "Cowboy Boots on Cbble Stone" (in English, of course, as well as large parts of the interview after picking the band up in a hotel and carrying them to the airport).

Here the link to the vid, you must probably have to wait a bit for loading and only then start (you cannot advance the vid while its loading), as this part starts at minute 17 into the vid and lasts to min 23:

http://www.rtve.es/mediateca/videos/20100628/mapa-sonoro-18-tulsa-joaquin-pascual-raimundo-amador-howe-gelb-javiera-mena/813898.shtml (http://www.rtve.es/mediateca/videos/20100628/mapa-sonoro-18-tulsa-joaquin-pascual-raimundo-amador-howe-gelb-javiera-mena/813898.shtml)

Quote
Tulsa Miren Iza explains how she composes and plays a song in a bar that could be in the Route 66 before boarding the van to go on tour with her band. Then we find the singer and actress Sara Da Pin Up and talked for a while with her music.

Later we are going to see Albacete´s Joaquin Pascual, a former member of the legendary Surfin 'Bichos and leader after Mercromina groups and Travolta.

In Barcelona we collect Raimundo Amador and Howe Gelb in their hotel to take them to the airport of El Prat.

We talked about the collaboration between them and we stop off to see them play the song "Cowboy Boots On Coble Stone." Then we found in the Mercat dels Encants the Chilean musician Javiera Mena, the new white hope of electronic pop in Spanish.



For those who dont want to give themselves the whole film, here another nice vid of the music that came from their work together (though I love this unplugged version on the field so much more):

band's name but it is really a solo guy.... helped by a band performing LIVE

Quote
To Piet Goddaer making music is as vital and natural as breathing. He's a prolific and passionate composer/performer and effortlessly connects with other artists from other disciplines, for example in film or fashion. Which leads to fascinating side-projects in other arts. "Our common ground is that we all observe the world around us and comment on what we see or experience. What we create is a personal reflection on our society. I love film, fashion, architecture, plastic arts and literature: they give me new insights. Very inspiring!"

His father, classical composer and jazz musician Norbert Goddaer, encourages Piet in his childhood to learn to read sheet music. At the local music academy the gifted youngster also learns to play the piano and the saxophone. At home, by exploring his dad's record collection, Piet develops a broad taste in music, from classical music to Dave Brubeck and Frank Zappa. On his 16th birthday, his father gives him his first electric guitar. Piet teaches himself to play the instrument. As soon as he masters the basics of the guitar, he starts writing songs. Not much later he forms his first band called Church of Nemesis, with brother Jan on bass. When the lead-singer leaves the band, Piet steps up to the microphone and the band changes its name into Heather O' Rourke. In 1994 Piet's brother Jan starts with the hiphop/funk project Word. Piet writes all the lyrics for this formation and raps on stage. Word becomes popular in the alternative underground scene and some songs are picked-up by the alternative Belgian radio station Studio Brussels.

But his creativity isn't limited to Word, Piet also writes songs for a solo-project he has in mind. With this material Ozark Henry is born in 1995. The music critics embrace him and his avant-garde music, but real success comes after the release of his third album 'Birthmarks' in 2001 and the hits 'Rescue', 'Word Up' and 'Sweet Instigator'. All the subsequent released Ozark Henry studio albums and compilation CD's sell in large numbers.

The talent, craftsmanship and musical courage and vision of Piet Goddaer is also noticed by colleagues in the music business. Other singers and groups enlist him as a songwriter, arranger or producer. He works with well-known Belgian bands as Arid, Lunascape, Novastar and the British artists-collective A Change Of Light. And Piet travels around the globe to participate in co-write sessions for international artists. Piet Goddaer describes his music as "almost visible moving landscapes". The cinematic feel of his compositions brings him a lot of assignments in television and motion picture, composing soundtracks for films, documentaries and drama-series. He writes the score for the popular Belgian TV-series 'Sedes & Belli', composes music for the film 'Crusade In Jeans' and the famous director Stijn Coninx turns to Piet Goddaer for the soundtrack of the highly-acclaimed documentary 'To Walk Again'.

The beautiful and sensitive atmospheres Piet evokes with his music trigger the attention of fashion designer Dries Van Noten. He invites the songwriter to Paris, to play live during his most important defile on an international catwalk. Piet is also asked to give ideas for a new clothing line for the popular retail chain JBC. The Dutch shoe designer Floris van Bommel confesses to be an avid fan of Piet and his music, and together they design a trendy pair of Ozark Henry flip-flops. "I enjoyed al these experiments, but please don't call me a designer, that's too much credit." However, Piet Goddaer clearly has an eye for style and design, for colour and shape. The proof? The quality booklets and covers of his CD's. This visual talent was shaped in his teenage years, when he took lessons at the local art academy. And even today he sometimes experiments with canvas and paint in his studio, just for recreational purposes.

Here, on our tiny island, we have a very alive community of fire fighters, here one explaining to school children why smoke detectors are a good thing to have (though the "Bombero Rapero" = "The Rapping Fire Fighter" is Puertoricanian)...:

Maybe you didnt know, but (US statistics) having a smoke detector installed at your home recudes fire deaths by 82%...
"El Detector de Humo" / The smoke detector (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZP0VaQkYXeU#ws)

Along the same personal thingy - and you wont as not from the island connect the issues though they *are* connected, two of our *real* famous musicians from here (while certainly great music not always to my personal liking, I am afraid, also not the best songs but the ones that didd not require to go to utube):

Nuria Fergó:
Si tu no estas aqui- Nuria Fergó (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sczht2rAVlo#)

Yes, though not my music - actually both artists were winners of what in the US would be "American Idol" here in Spain (Operacion Triunfo) - too cold and "staged" for my liking.

OTOH yesterday night in a bar ran into a guy covering the Swiss duo "Double" very well (anybody still remembers "Rangoon Moon", "Captain of her Heart"?), his name is "Kurt Maloo", never had heard of him before, but he sure revives some of my best ´80s "late night, at the bar" memories...:

And here one of the original tunes (i.e. by "Double"):

Double - Rangoon Moon (Official 1984 Version) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJbQRuAvMDk#)

... and the cover by Kurt Maloo, same feeling and vibes, but obviously adapted to the "modern" times, nice job!

I have always been fascinated by our German (wartime? at least dictatorship times) movies which created some unforgettable characters and songs, not only for my generation or (even more) my parents`but also seems to equally still affect e.g. my own kids, I guess in the end they are universal and time resistant, somehow (frankly, a bit of a Hanna Reitsch effect here, there are things that are independent from the political/social environment they were created in, the achievement as such has its own value)...

As only recently (1983) having moved to Spain I am only now finding out abut the parallels of the same thingy in Spain (and they didn't even participate in the war!)

As we are only allowed three vids per post, let me split this in two parts:

GERMAN (propaganda?) movie music songs (classics) from during the NSDAP regime, and SPANISH music movie songs (classics as well in the above mentioned sense) from during the FRANCO regime (which obviously went on a bit longer) in the next post.

Interesting to compare, both similarities as differences clearly visible...:

Germany, part 1, "Hans Albers" (1891- 1960):

Hans Albers, "Auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins" (On the Reeperbahn at 0030) is a song from 1936, having actually been used in *two* movies: "Grosse Freiheit #7" ("Big freedom #7"), the first one referring to a part of hamburg called "St. Pauli" and two of its "worldwide known" streets, the "Grosse Freiheit" and die "Reeperbahn (http://en.reeperbahn.se/)", kind of (up to the 80s, now it is hard core all under Albanian control) a very mild and amicable red light district in Hamburg/St. Pauli presenting a mix of bars/brothels where everybody was welcome and could have a nice evening (ladies included).

Hans Albers (who died way too early in full bloom) is a National Legend in Germany (like maybe the rat pack guys in the US), for us describing the "good" German (albeit being a little bit "Redneck" if you allow me this US POV intrusion), the working class "gentleman" who would fight for his and others (mainly ladies, but also foreign soldiers, or poor "negroes") honor and other general socially appreciated valors (hence he usually was either a ship Captain or an Explorer, or a Pilot in his films, here the propagandistic influence). Still, he surely left his marks on *my* view on the world...

This here is one of the few songs (being a "Waltz" helps!) I am sure every German knows to sing and dance (and we know few. maybe 3, to our shame when abroad), and even up today it is the anthem of the "St. Pauli" soccer club and sung on every party where a little (more) bit of alc is involved. The Nazis DID NOT use the song with the same actor twice, the vid excerpt "Wasser für Canitoba" (Water for Canitoba, addresses another song, from 1932, "Goodbye Johnny", when Jazz in Germany was not yet forbidden as "negro music" and so gives a wrong idea in the context of "Reeperbahn"), give it time past the introduction if you want to see the "ideal" German from NSDAP POV (Hans Albers was marketed after 1938 as "Der Blonde Hans" or "The Blond Giant").

The lyrics -for that time- in their explicitness were *very* European, is my guess, cannot imagine this would have been lyrics for a song in "Disneyban" Hollywood, they surely are politically incorrect today:

Quote
Silbern klingt und springt die Heuer, /Silvery sounds and jumps the wage (in my pocket)
heut' speel ick dat feine Oos. /Today I am going to be a gentleman
Heute ist mir nichts zu teuer, /Nothing is too expensive tonight
morgen geht die Reise los. /Because tomorrow we will be leaving again
Langsam bummel ich ganz alleine /Slowly I go strolling, all alone
die Reeperbahn nach der Freiheit 'rauf, /From "Reeperbahn" to "(Grosse) Freiheit"
treff ich eine Blonde, recht feine, /Until I run into a blonde, really cute
die gabel ich mir auf. /This one I am going to pick up

Komm doch, liebe Kleine, sei die meine, sag' nicht nein! /Come on, little one (sweetheart), be mine, dont say no
Du sollst bist morgen früh um neune meine kleine Liebste sein. /I want you to be - at least till tomorrow 9 o´clock - to be my beloved darling
Ist dir's recht, na dann bleib' ich dir treu sogar bis um zehn. /If you agree, ok, so I promise I will stay true to you until even 10 o´clock...!
Hak' mich unter, wir woll'n zusammen mal bummeln geh'n. /Accept my arm, lets go strolling...

Auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins, /On Reeperbahn at twelve thirty at night
ob du'n Mädel hast oder hast kein's, /If you have a girl or if you haven´t
amüsierst du dich, /You will have (find) fun
denn das findet sich /Because this is what always happens
auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins. /On Reeperbahn at twelve thirty at night
Wer noch niemals in lauschiger Nacht /Who never during a nice and warm night
einen Reeperbahnbummel gemacht, /Has taken a stroll up and down Reeperbahn
ist ein armer Wicht, /Must be a sad bloke, really
denn er kennt dich nicht, /Because he never got to know you
mein St. Pauli, St. Pauli bei Nacht. /You, my St. Pauli, St. Pauli at night!

Kehr ich heim im nächsten Jahre, /If I come back one year from now
braungebrannt wie'n Hottentott; /Burnt black like a Negro
hast du deine blonden Haare /You will have tainted your blonde hair
schwarz gefärbt, vielleicht auch rot, /To black, or maybe to red...?
grüßt dich dann mal ein fremder Jung', /Should then a stranger greet you (on the street)
und du gehst vorüber und kennst ihn nicht, /And you pass him and cannot remember why
kommt dir vielleicht die Erinnerung wieder, /Maybe memory will come back
wenn leis' er zu dir spricht: /When he susses in a low voice:

Komm doch, liebe Kleine, sei die meine, sag' nicht nein! /Come on, little one (sweetheart), be mine, dont say no
Du sollst bist morgen früh um neune meine kleine Liebste sein. /I want you to be - at least till tomorrow 9 o´clock - to be my beloved darling
Ist dir's recht, na dann bleib' ich dir treu sogar bis um zehn. /If you agree, ok, so I promise I will stay true to you until even 10 o´clock...!
Hak' mich unter, wir woll'n zusammen mal bummeln geh'n. /Accept my arm, lets go strolling...

Auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins, /On Reeperbahn at twelve thirty at night

We Germans find such stuff romantic...  :D

Hans Albers - Auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FP-F3v83f8#ws)

As we went on about Hann Reitsch (and I dont agree at all with Monty on this one (http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/personalities-aces/a-young-germans-wet-dream/msg16182/#msg16182)), propaganda even in the early ´30s prepared Germans to become pilots (not so hard, at hose times pilots had all the girls they wanted, the problem was to actally be allowed to fly), and to see in what mindset she and so many grew up:

From the movie "FP1 does not answer" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0022869/) (F.P.1 antwortet nicht) from 1932 where Albers again displayed the image of the German Male as the NSDAP wanted it to be seen (see the pix in the vid), came one of my favorite songs ever, the "Fliegerlied" (Aviators´ song), the best I found to describe what we young Germans felt when we wanted to become pilots, and not surprisingly until to day the pilots anthem both civil as well as with great vid artwork in the ads for the German Airfoce
Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozuL4o9Aep8#
and even for Rock Bands, another song all Germans can sing from memory. I simply love the lyrics, even if they dont paint anything anymore of what flying today means (and, for those who dont speak German, in my translation all the charme and poetry of the lyrics is lost, I am afraid, but in the rhymes and rhythm you might find it if you get the gist):

Quote
Vom Nordpol zum Südpol ist nur ein Katzensprung. /North Pole, South Pole, its just a jump away
Wir fliegen die Strecke bei jeder Witterung. /we fly this route all weather
Wir warten nicht, wir starten! /we dont wait, we just take off
Was immer auch geschieht, /whatever happens to us,
durch Wind und Wetter /through wind and weather
klingt das Fliegerlied: /the Pilots Song can be heard:

Flieger, /Aviator
grüß mir die Sonne, /greet the sun from me
grüß mir die Sterne /greet the stars from me
und grüß mir den Mond. /and greet the moon

Dein Leben, /your life
das ist ein Schweben /is levitation
durch die Ferne, die keiner bewohnt! /through a distance (space) where nobody lives

Schneller, /faster,
und immer schneller, /and faster yet
rast der Propeller, wie dir's grad gefällt! /swishes the prop the way you like it

Piloten, ist nichts verboten, /Nothing is forbidden for pilots,
drum gib Vollgas und flieg um die Welt! /so open the throttle! and fly around the world

Such' dir die schönste Sternenschnuppe aus /select the most impressive shooting star
und bring sie deinem Mädel mit nach Haus! /and bring it home to your girl

Flieger, /Aviator
grüß mir die Sonne, /greet the sun from me
grüß mir die Sterne /greet the stars from me
und grüß mir den Mond. /and greet the moon

Hoch oben im Äther, /Up there in space (literally: In the Ether)
da sind wir meist zu Haus! /that is what we call home
Bei fünftausend Meter /from 5000 meters
sieht alles anders aus. /everything gets a different perspective (literally: looks different)

Da gibt's keine Grenzen! /Up there dont exist frontiers
Da gibt's keinen Paß! /Up there no passport is required
Der Flieger fliegt /The aviator just  flies
und fragt nicht: Wie und was? /and never asks about the "How, What and Why"

Flieger, grüß mir die Sonne...

Es war einmal ein Flieger, der jeden Flug gewann, /There once was an aviator
er flog um die Wette mit einem Hurrikan. /Who flew a race with a hurricane
Er flog mit fast vierhundert zur Milchstraße empor, /at almost 400 he flew into the milky way
der arme, alte Hurrikan verlor: /and the poor hurricane lost

Flieger, grüß mir die Sonne...


Hans Albers, 1932, FP1 antwortet nicht, "Das Fliegerlied" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMbuwOQJDwI#)

.... Later more, not finished yet, but after 3 hours of research now my eyes are dry and my machine has become so sluggish (around 100 windows open) that I fear it might hang up and my labour would be lost, so better posting now and continue tomorrow when my machine has autocleaned at 0200....

... as a gimmick, and because I could not finish my before post, before I go to bed a modern version of the aviators song, just to show how alive it still is 60 yrs later... Extrabreit, 96, was cult at this time in every disco (though ppl interpreted it rather as "aircraft - same word as "aviator" in German - , carry me to the sun", i.e. Mallorca... :), see the vid comentaries at youtube ):

Rattler,
  Very nice.  I'd forgotten completely about Kurt Maloo with all those years since I'd last heard him.  "The Captain of Her Heart" is a real classic, as is "Rangoon Moon."  I can't recall when I heard them last, but remembered them immediately, thanks to you.  That smooth jazz-like sound combined with the really slick beat was great. 

  Sometimes it is the great memories that are associated with a particular song that make them so dear to one's heart.  The really great songs always click with something you were doing at the time you heard it.  Maloo's songs certainly conjure up the memories of smoky bars and the touch of romance or adventure.  Keep up the good work.  I am enjoying it greatly.

Heinrich,

That is collaboration, you just big time amplified my muscial horizon!

It really had escaped me that Kurt Maloo was one of the two of the original "Double" duo, I had for some reason always focussed on Felix Haug being the guy that inspired and moved it. completely ignoring the voice that made it so smooth (Rattler slaps himself around with a big trout for this ignorance and stupidity...  hdbng   (http://www.dp-guild.org/icontrout.gif)).

So, correcting my post from above, of course I have heard (and liked) him!

Thanks, mate, you just made my day!

Before you get carried away too far and drown in memories of yesterday and associated diaper induced discussions, here a hommage to Gemma Mengual and one of my favorite songs nowadays (as I am sure you have never heard of her: Gemma Mengual is *THE* Spanish underwater - several medals - olympic ballet swimmer.

Just retired this year at 36 (and right in my prey scheme apart of being from the island, with this classic nose and those long eyelashes!!), captain also of the gold winning Spanish team of sync underwater ballet. The song, of course, is "Yesterday" by the Beatles (though not by them in this vid).

I saw this (or a similar, seemed better what I saw than what I find on the net) video tonight, and "UCP" (her nickname here: Initials of "Un Cuerpo Perfecto" = "One Perfect Body") left myself mouth open and flabbergasted: While I am not at all into this sport (?) I have to recognize that her performance interprets more out of the song than what is there, pure Med and Flamenco in a perfect conjunction with northern European music...

And then - as this  a music thread after all -  goes my question (as I frankly dont know) I have my suspicions but did not find confirmation on the net: Who is the interpret songwise?)? Anybody?

Anyway, enjoy the performance (give the vid some time, she was obviously nervous at the beginning up to 1 minute)!

Plata para Mengual en individual (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3I8INoCKk4Y#)

Just as an additional gimmick, one more from the Spanish Gold Medal winning team under this ladies auspices (the annoying Japanese comentator in the end even adds with his voice to the performance), music in this case not being my main focus (we have covered the song in this thread already) but rather on the "UCP"s we are seeing here everyday in the Med and the (innocent) joy it brings along:

Stairway to Heaven - SPANISH Synchronized Swimming Team (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzuU1GnXvaw#)

As one of the commenters on the vid stated: "The only way this could possibly be cooler is if one of them was playing guitar? while riding a dolphin."


Not too far fetched, enjoy!

FACMan, I think you are spot-on with master Ray Charles, was my guess also (but as I said, I could not find confirmation by this exact tune on the tube), this is what comes closest and what *my* idea was based on (but is an excerpt):

Change of spectrum and inspired by Heinrichs comment:

As I am now finally made to be leaving my house and live as a bum in the woods it is time to say goodbye to many things I have cherished, beneath them also being my nice and sacred vinyl collection.

As I will only either sell them as a whole (some 700, most first pressings, all in rather excellent shape - just not taken out in ten years - ending at 1985 more or less including priceless stuff like first Zappa R+R record etc) or throw them into the sea I am now going through them to see which ones I will miss most, here are some of the beatuies I just ran into today:

A big focus of my collection was always R+B, Jazz, Jazzrock (where I come from, kind of the intellectuals R+B) and combined this with groove, groove and more groove. This might go funky sometimes, rocky, decent bar pop/background stuff, and dance.

Here a great example, had in the last 15 years not even thought once of the guy, anybody remember Roy Ayers? Worked later with Jamiroquai?

From 1983 and in my colection the album "Lots of Love" with rather not only jazzy but also some hard stuff I put up as DJ in the late 80s. Seems in this time he could not make up his mind where to go: Jazz? Funk? Soul? Two examples from "Lots of Love", first for the DJ table, 2nd for the bar after disco:

Roy Ayers - Fast Money (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9LKmbcOtmw#)

Roy Ayers - And then we were one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Duy0S3CM20o#)

In the 90s then, made up his mind and came up with some of the best stuff I know from this direction, easy, funky, dancable and - his pearly xylophone solos sitting on a running bass accompanied by a nice relaxed beat - GROOVY (turn up volume well, low level recording), a must in every DJs today chillout box. If heard low volume you can just lay back and go to sleep, turn volume up and all your limbs will start moving autonomously if youre into dancing...:

So, I walk into this bar (again, and sorry!: I *AM* a bar man) and hear a song we all know, but in a version I had not even dreamed of to hear (and believe me, I know about 15 versions of it), with a voice emulating a sax where normallly the idea is at reverse (Tokunbo Akinro = vocals):

Tok Tok Tok - 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97IKgLt1uJg#)

The bar owner, Italian, a real bum with music, and we dont know whether we love or hate each other (day form decides momentarily) realizes I pricked my ears (yes, even humans react to corporal langue sometimes, not just dogs!) and treated me with about 50 songs of the same band in a row, all so loud that the other clients left, frankly had not ever heard one of those before (and I a*am * a music freak, following everything up and down and consider myself well versed in current music. Well: You always find something new to learn even though youre smart, no? iloveme ).

Now, and as I do this every year, it is about time I make up my mind about "The Voice", "The Singer", "The Performer" or "The Band Of The Year" from my POV ...

(2008, e.g. the Voice Of The Year for me was Amadine Burgeois >>
Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZfgbGAwdJ0
,

... as published, my "Ballad Pop" revelation this year - also published - was Tiromanchino (http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/the-lounge-get-a-beer-go-off-topic/the-omnipresent-currently-playing-%28music%29-thread/msg15553/#msg15553) ).

Now, "Tok Tok Tok" made without any question the latter: Of the 50 songs the bar owner tortured me with through almost three hours (by volume, that is, songs were great! Volume UP recommended for most of them...), I did not hear one bad, many good, super covers, and some galactical stuff by them themselves, truly went flabbergasted after this show. What a voice on this chillout beat, I could not invent it better...! A mix of Jazz, Chill, Funk, Dance, and all to perfection, the (few) covers suit them well... Mainstream? Yes, but the right one...

I searched The Tube (as you can imagine), did not find as much as I had had to listen to today (actually way less than expected, the bar owner had most off a concert, "live", that is where they make good in earnest), but some nice stuff for starters I found anyway...

Prick up your ears, folks, and dont forget the name of My Band Revelation 2010: "Tok Tok Tok"...

tok tok tok (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVmJc5U-Teg#)

Tok Tok Tok - Living Hell (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7goKY8jmcs#)

Some of the live stuff I was talking about, those concerts are worth their money I you are well accompanied, methinks:

Tok Tok Tok - Although he hurts me - Bridgestone Music Festival '09 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r41Bcs42sCU#)

Tok Tok Tok - SP - MAIO 09 KAKAOS (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60VQj1xPDic#)

Tok Tok Tok - Live (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yC4HlWsFowc#)

an ample spectrum, they do everything from rock to pop to jazz, and all well...! Their hommage to Michael Jackson, again some of the best stuff I have come to be aware along this line:

TOK TOK TOK - Michael Jackson (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZOz54_uyoTc#)

Definitely. My. Band. Revelation. Of. The. Year (and, yes, I realize I simply did not have them on my radar though they have been around since 2005, what can I say?)  :trout:    hdbng

Quote
Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people

okies, as you want some ´80 dance stuff, just to help you get started your channel:

One of *my* dance tracks (I dubbed this dance music genre "Dumb" on my comp for the kind of beat below, but (and only then) after a few GTs makes for great flirts on the floor, I like it...  :banana:):

Dj Tonka - 84 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCjLx6YqxDk#)

Good Luck!

Rattler

P.S.: Any ImageReady artists out there plz add a frew frames to my banana self and send the result to TA, it is out of synch with 80% of the dance tracks... R.

Crossposting, but just in case nobody saw the other thread and as it is also well placed here, even if youre not a JC fan:

Quote
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

When I hear that trumpet sound
I'm gonna rise right out of the ground
Ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

Well, look way down the river
And what do you think I see
I see a band of angels
And they're coming after me

Ain't no grave...

Well, look down yonder, Gabriel
Put your feet on the land and sea
But Gabriel, don't you blow your trumpet
Until you hear from me

Ain't no grave...

Well meet me, Jesus, meet me
Meet me in the middle of the air
And if these wings don't fail me,
I will meet you anywhere

Ain't no grave...

Well meet me, Mother and Father,
Meet me down the river road
And Mama, you know that I'll be there
When I check in my load

Ain't no grave...

There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

Weekend, and currently watching (for probably over the years the third time) the intriguing and at the same time utterly disturbing movie "Southern Comfort" about this fatal NG maneuver in Lousianna, right now going through the part where - towards the end of the movie - the two leftover survivors voluntarily have to join the party in the Cajun village, one of the better Cajun pieces, and sure the best version of it that I have heard ("Parlez Nous A Boire"):

From the same movie, the title song ("Final Cover"), by Ry Cooder:

For those who dont know the movie (or under another title: In Germany its called "Die B-Kompanie (Bravo Company)", and here in Spain it is titled "La Presa (Prey") ), as a gimmick the original trailer from 1981:

Looks like in course of the day we will lose a great one (my favorite classic Flamenco singer, I have in the past posted various of his songs here, e.g. his hypnotic "First we take Manhatten" version):

Enrique Morente, 67 years old, entered hospital on DEC 4 to be operated on a cancer of the osoephagus, after the operation he had some cardiac complications which made another operation necessary last Thursday.

During this 2nd operation he suffered an ictus and went into coma, now the news reaches us that he has entered irreversible brain death and is only be kept alive by the machines.

As Morente is apart from his classical Flamenco also so well known for his crossover experiments with other musicians and music/art forms (video, photography) that he enriched with this broken voice of his, I will leave the classical stuff out and present this other side:

First, a work again with Lagartija Nick, the musicalizacion of a video project over a poem by Garcia Lorca from 1936, "Ciuadad sin sueño" ("The city that never sleeps") a hommage to his Brooklyn exile during the Spanish Civil War, which is conisdered the most important anti war poem ever written (translation by me):

Quote
No duerme nadie por el cielo. Nadie, nadie.
No duerme nadie.
Las criaturas de la luna huelen y rondan sus cabañas.
Vendrán las iguanas vivas a morder a los hombres que no sueñan
y el que huye con el corazón roto encontrará por las esquinas
al increíble cocodrilo quieto bajo la tierna protesta de los astros.

No one is sleeping in heaven. Nobody, nobody.
No one is sleeping.
The creatures of the moon sniff and prowl about their cabins.
Living iguanas will come to bite the men who do not dream
and those fleeing with a broken heart will meet on the corner
the incredible quiet alligator beneath the tender protest of the stars.


No duerme nadie por el mundo. Nadie, nadie.
No duerme nadie.
Hay un muerto en el cementerio más lejano
que se queja tres años
porque tiene un paisaje seco en la rodilla;
y el niño que enterraron esta mañana lloraba tanto
que hubo necesidad de llamar a los perros para que callase.

Nobody is sleeping in the world. Nobody, nobody.
No one is sleeping.
A dead man in a graveyard far away
has been complaining for three years
because he has a dry spot on his knee;
and that boy they buried this morning cried so much
it was necessary to call the dogs to be quiet.


No es sueño la vida. ¡Alerta! ¡Alerta! ¡Alerta!
Nos caemos por las escaleras para comer la tierra húmeda
o subimos al filo de la nieve con el coro de las dalias muertas.
Pero no hay olvido, ni sueño:
carne viva. Los besos atan las bocas
en una maraña de venas recientes
y al que le duele su dolor le dolerá sin descanso
y al que teme la muerte la llevará sobre sus hombros.

Life is no dream. Warning! Warning! Warning!
We fall down the stairs to eat damp earth
or climb to the edge of the snow listening to the choir of the dead dahlias.
But there is no forgetting, no sleep:
Raw flesh. Kisses tie mouths
in a tangle of veins,
and for those who hurt their hurt will last forever
and whoever is afraid of death will be carrying it on his shoulders.


Un día
los caballos vivirán en las tabernas
y las hormigas furiosas
atacarán los cielos amarillos que se refugian en los ojos de las vacas.

One day
Horses wil live in the taverns
and the furious ants
will attack the yellow skies that have taken refuge in the eyes of the cows.


Otro día
veremos la resurrección de las mariposas disecadas
y aún andando por un paisaje de esponjas grises y barcos mudos
veremos brillar nuestro anillo y manar rosas de nuestra lengua.

¡Alerta! ¡Alerta! ¡Alerta!
A los que guardan todavía huellas de zarpa y aguacero,
a aquel muchacho que llora porque no sabe la invención del puente
o a aquel muerto que ya no tiene más que la cabeza y un zapato,
hay que llevarlos al muro donde iguanas y sierpes esperan,
donde espera la dentadura del oso,
donde espera la mano momificada del niño
y la piel del camello se eriza con un violento escalofrío azul.

On another day
we will witness dissceted butterflies resurrect
and though walking through a landscape of gray sponges and silent boats
we will see our ring flashing brilliantly and will have roses spring from our tongues.

Warning! Warning! Warning!
Those who still have marks of the claws and the thunderstorms,
that boy who cries because he does not know about the invention of the bridge
or hat dead man who only consists of a head and a shoe:
We must carry them to the wall where the iguanas and snakes are waiting,
where the bear fangs are waiting,
where the mummified hand of a child is waiting,
and where camel skin stands on end with a violent blue shudder.


No duerme nadie por el cielo. Nadie, nadie.
No duerme nadie.
Pero si alguien cierra los ojos,
¡azotadlo, hijos míos, azotadlo!
Haya un panorama de ojos abiertos
y amargas llagas encendidas.
No duerme nadie por el mundo. Nadie, nadie.
Ya lo he dicho.
No duerme nadie.
Pero si alguien tiene por la noche exceso de musgo en las sienes,
abrid los escotillones para que vea bajo la luna
las copas falsas, el veneno y la calavera de los teatros.

No one is sleeping in heaven. Nobody, nobody.
No one is sleeping.
But if someone closes his eyes,
Whip him, boys, whip him!
There is a landscape of open eyes
and bitter wounds on fire.
Nobody is sleeping in the world. Nobody, nobody.
Now I've said it.
No one is sleeping.
But if someone at night finds he has too much mucus in his temples,
open the stage trapdoors so he can in the moonlight see
the false/lying goblets, the poison, and the skulls in the theatre.

Another one, a bit more traditional, just one year old, "Nana del oriente" (Sleeping song for the East) where he with his daughter gives voice to a great series of photos he took on some of his travels, all about "Mother" ("Ma(d)re").

As I am taking heat already from FB, one good friend here and from my two home pages for this above article, let me make it clear for those who did not get it yet:

I did not say those songs published were representative of Enrique Morentes work (actually, I have published many others in this same thread, use the "Search" feature plz, you will find a more ample vision of his work), and I know they are hard on the traditionalists ear, I meant them seriously to show his ample form of thinking and feeling art, estending the simples soleas, bulerias or tango to something way more ideological and ample. For me he was great not for his music, voice or lyrics only, but really for the intensity he transmitted...

For consolidation of those cross with me (and especially my friend and Flamenco freak S., I am sure you will understand there was never even the sightest offence meant), here some of his traditional stuff, and now, after it is out in the open, I may say with all my heartfelt sadness:

D.E.P.!  We will miss you seriously.

Rattler

With "Tomatito" in la "Alhambra", again in one of his efforts to "join all good people", of course - in this place more then ever - fully givng credit to the Arabic roots of Flamenco:

MORENTE SUEÑA LA ALHAMBRA (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HS8tKVYf7ok#)

One "Granadina" that says 1980 but is surely older, to show where he came from traditionally, what a voice at that time!

Enrique Morente - Granaina (1980) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXtXKZjzOYM#)

And, my favorite of his ever (and I am sure I *did* post this one before, though I cannot find the fantastic and very straightforward poetic lyrics anywhere), from a Carlos Saura film, the style is "Solea por Buleria", no matter what others want to sell it as (e.g. as Seguiriya). And it holds one "Copla" line I have taken to heart, explaining "love" verus "passion" (4:05 minutes into the vid) "How can you compare a puddle to a fountain!? Comes out the cruel sun, and the puddle vanishes, wheras the fountain...  -  ...will persist..." ("¿Cómo quieres comparar un charco con una fuente? Sale el sol, se seca el charco y la fuente permanece...!").

If you listen to this part and the way he presents it (4:05 into the vid and thats why I put it in Spanish so everybody can follow the song at this point), then you will understand a little bit of this art: This is the intensity I am refering to.

Interesting, Koen!

Here, meanwhile, everybody went crazy about the unexpected passing away of Enrique Morente.

Were it around 5000 yesterday in the capilla ardiente in Madrid that passed the coffin, today he was fared well by around 100.000 on the streets of Granada on his way to the Alhambra were he will be rest.

His daughter, Estrella Morente, sang a very emotional good-bye to him in fornt of an audience of around 5.000 that held everybody with a name in Flamenco, jazz, music and art in general and politics (yes, politicians too: No way can you leave out a foto!!).

I have added the link (in the google translation - dont trust it too much: The phrase "...Estrella Morente has been thrown in the coffin in a funeral installed at the Teatro Isabel la Católica. His whole family has followed..." does neither represent the original text and of course even less the events: It means to say that after the farewell song she flung herself on top of the coffin, followed by other family mourners).

The video (Habanera Imposible) is on the right side of the page, not instantly obvious:

Boy, the impacts sure are coming closer....!

JFTR, I never have been a big follower of Capatain Beefheart (though I went to two or three of his concerts when he still was with the original Magic Band crew), despite being quite open for all kinds of music I never could really warm to this personality except maybe the straightforward rock stuff (IIRC CB was just one of his personalities, he was a painter and theatre artist as well under different personalities, e.g.: "Don Glenn" in theatre, and "Don van Vliet" in the paint art business).

Still, I am the first to recognize that he was one part of the joint forces to opening my musical horizons, and it is a pity he should have gone so soon...

The parts of his music I can cope with are more along this road (early 80s):

This is for Koen: I could have included this in my previous answer to FACMan, but as it is complex and different from the music discussed there, a double post to answer you seperately:

Quote
His daughter, Estrella Morente


also a professional singer Matt?


Yes, and quite so: All Flamenco is traditionally passed in the (almost 90%+ gypsie) family, from father to son and so on, making for nice and interesting comparisons of the generations.

This is the case also with Estrella Morente, "apple of his eye" of his father, and, while she is not innovative in any way I knew of, she sure made a great and extremely professional companion to her father and his projects, and also to her uncle´s (Paco Morente) and her grandfathers rather traditional take.  

In all those discussions it is important to understand that "Flamenco" is not just a music genre, but a form of living and thinking (hence all the bank "attacks" now with Flamenco, etc) and lyrics, dance, team work and many other factors are determinative when deciding what is good and what is not.

Here now some stuff of Estrella, first with her father (though you have heard her already in the videos I posted: The female voice in the background of both "City without sleep" and "Nana del Oriente" is hers), and then solo DEC 2006. Koen will LOVE those tunes! They are a nice mix of traditional and commercialized flamenco, and on top the lady is not really extremely ugly... (the saying in Flamenco goes - as it wants to appeal to all senses - : The eye enjoys also...):

This first video has them both, and is actually the video that made me take note of both of them:

Some ten years ago, early in the morning at 0400, having fallen asleep in a movie earlier that night in front of the TV, I suddenly awoke to this soft and amazing song in our morning "Antena 3" music program here: Even today it is still a song that makes my eyes wet because of how the female and the male voice literally entwine so unexpectedly and sweet to describe that night of passion and genteelness (and I vividly remember my first thought when watching it: "What an ugly guy to go with such a beauty!", but I reversed this opinion about 2 minutes later, when I realized that I was listening to a true "maestro"...). How great to have been granted to live such a family feeling....!:

As the video (and Enrique at the end) says: "Olé! las mujeres guapas!" (Hail (to) all beautiful women!), and, from my POV, to the not so beautiful also!:

Enrique y Estrella Tangos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDUb2hbIA4U#)

The solo ("Volveré" = "I will be coming back", a song about how we always come back to our first love after all mistreatement we have lived/suffered (?), and a "Thank You" to her family, expressed verbally by naming all of them before the song starts):

Estrella morente - Volveré

([url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upsF0jpz4kg#[/url])
Do you enjoy Buena Vista Social Club? I got some albums on my PC and I like it but the fact that I don't understand the lyrics at all makes it hard to get into it  :-\


Of course I like and enjoy them, very much so, and I actually have been one of the three photographers assigned to the band when they made their first German tour in 2000 (or 2001?) -  when nobody knew them well yet, the movie just having aired.

What I remember best is that they did not want wine, but "Whisky!" at the dinners organized for them in my home town during that tour...  ;D We had (it was a weekend) to reccur all bars around to provide the necessary number of bottles of Whiskey, and the ice cubes to go along... :)

Many of their songs are "traditional" songs here in Spain also, and everybody knows and sings them (as I learned from my ex wife Joana after the tour), and with her help I got to understand a few of them better, let me share one of my translations of one of the songs I like best - sorry, but I am a romantic the way they dont make them anymore today -, "Aquellos ojos verdes" (= "Those Green Eyes"):

Quote
Aquellos ojos verdes / Those green eyes
de mirada serena / of this sincere look
dejaron en mi alma / left in my soul
eterna fe de amar. / an everlasting belief in love.
Anhelos de caricias, / Yearning for touches
de besos y ternuras / kisses and tenderness
de todas las dulzuras / all those sweetnesses
que han podido brindar. / that one can toast to.

Aquellos ojos verdes / Those green eyes
serenos como un lago / clear as a lake
en cuyas quietas aguas / in whose quiet waters
un día me miré. / one day I saw myself (reflected).
No saben la tristeza / You cannot know the sadness
que en mi alma dejaron / that in my soul they left...
aquellos ojos verdes que / ...those green eyes that
nunca olvidaré / I will never forget

Sorry, Koen, but it was gone (Sony again) before we even had a chance to listen to it....

My advice stands: DL those vids you want to share (Koen seems to have found a way for PCs to do so: http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/wat-tech-info/how-to-download-a-youtube-video/ (http://www.warandtactics.com/smf/wat-tech-info/how-to-download-a-youtube-video/)), host them at WaT (disk space is not that expensive and can easily be taken care of with the donations we have atm) so we dont lose 80% over time of the great stuff we have shared here. Facmans thread of his ToD, for example, is quite in shambles by now with half the vids killed, we should not let that happen (and are safe from Copyright issues as we are sharing privately).

yes, it got blocked in some countries, don't understand it, people don't earn any money from it! and showing it on Youtube can only lift sales...

the video is too big to upload.... I convert them into HD before I put them on my MusicChannel
I don't download my videos but use 'Windows Live Moviemaker' to make videos from mp3's on my PC (any chance we could upload/post mp3's with additional software installed?)

and then solo DEC 2006. Koen will LOVE those tunes!


I loved her solo-singing with guitar, the first one with her father is not so my thing due to more-than-one voice singing. It ain't bad but I prefer solo singing. And yes, the eyes also get a treat  hihi

And now for something completely different:

An (ironic a bit :) ) video about the Russian airborne Troops (VDV) to the song "VDV" of Alexander Buinov.

Interestingly, while this kind of songs (and Russian Armed Forces Rock Bands) seem to be quite normal over there (everybody plays in uniform !?), I could not find anything about e.g. Rock Bands formed of German Armed Forces members...? Of course, we have our BW Big Band, but that is it, nobody else makes music in uniform...

VDV By SHARK ATTACK (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvXzIr2Mpj0#)

And another one to show this tradition, this a hommage to General Vasily Magelov, long time comander of the VDV:

Boy, how I know this!

As journo I have met ex mil guys from many different (and even former "enemy") nations, and always got along extremely well, I guess its the sucking of the same tit that makes us kind of "family" (goes also with police and fire fighters guys to some extent).

As for the guy in the vid being a Marine, I doubt it, as his uniform is VDV (By our forum software distorted cyrilic charcters here meaning "Vozdushno Desantnye Voyska" = Airborne Assault Forces, EDIT by TA), here the original (song) and much critizized (as the guy is a pop star and not a soldier, and the text has been assumed "embarrasing" for a recuitment vid) video (for me personally thats a-ok, he seems to like them quite a lot and he got the face for a good ad :) ):

Uuufff.... Looking at the vids again tonight I realize that the guy of vid 2 is *suspiciously very* much alike to the Singer/songwriter guy (vid 3), this definitely was not intended but might be a hint to that also in the Russian Forces rock bands are rather thinly seeded?

Now for something completely different again (my urge to post intitiated by a guest we have here who is from my home town and knows the guys - yes they are the bald guys you wont want to take up on the offer of a beer... :) - and with a nice try of cammoing themselves under wool hats). I am sure I posted this before, but it is enough fun to post it again: "The Joint Of No Return!!"

The *true* story of Jamaican Space Travel, revealed exclusively here. OK, so there is one Bavarian in this song - the guy in the middle, actually the "Star", Mr. Mittermeier - , thats true, but NOTE he cannot even sing in lip sync to the playback...  hihi Says it alll!!

I am as agnostic and unreligious as they come (as by now all on this forum should have captured) but this song - with all its irony -, still, makes me reflect about some of the ppl I know and love, wondering: "...does HE/SHE *really* exist, could it be that the guy/lady I am just looking at is HIM/HER?"

This occurs to me sometimes, usually because I am always and then again left open mouthed to having had the possibility to live the luck to see and receive what positive force some (ordinary) people sometimes bring to bear in this basically evil world, and on where and when I/you would least expect it to happen...

This said and felt, lets speculate: Assuming for a sec that the "others" (religious) might in the end be right: What if God *really* was one of us, living with us, really, like in ancient Egypt/Greece legends? Wandering beneath us, interacting with our lives in good/bad manner according to his liking, without we even realizing? Could we even know? Would we suspect? What about the ppl you know that fit this scheme?

Take the guy you never took serious, who suddenly apparently is working miracles with and for others? The slob around who makes you cringe because he is so weird, but at one point you suddenly realize that even with all your PC neatness you never will even remotely reach his level of humanity? Experiencing such an encounter, dont you ask yourself, as myself: Could it be HIM, around to test, laugh, check? Would it be personal?

If so, what would be your question to him, if you had just one left? Would you ask it?

Dedicated to the first person I ran into on this island, Migui: Seriously, you got as close as could be for me. Long live the universal idea of the "Mitj i Mitj" (Half and Half) that you envisioned, how I would wish to just sit there with you and another GT and share one more of those unique and almost unreal sunsets that led to so much mutual understanding about the rights and wrongs, the insignificant and the important, life and the universe...!

I have but one question for him/her, it is the same one I asked in my foxhole in Vietnam, which has yet to be answered. "What the fuck are you doing on this planet allowing this kind of evil to exist?" And if I ever get the answer, and it has something to do with us being the cause, due to our 'free will', Im going to kick him in the ass for being such a dim wit.

Are you sure you would be asking the same new testament god that I would ask my question to?

As agnostic I can hardly imagine any supposedly christian god sending ppl to war and even less allowing them to commit atrocities, when according to the Bible his transcendent and life changing force lies just in the opposite COA.

OTOH, I have never understood in depth the significance of the contradictions of the "early" (old testament) and the "later" and three-phasic (new testament) god, but I can go along with latter and wonder sometimes whether I just crossed him on the street.

Dont really want to hijack the thread (I will post a song, just to keep on track, just dont know yet which, lets see where my post leads me), but I hear bitterness from your post and think I want to reply:

Maybe we differ on takes here, and I guess its a cultural thing (as most of us Germans have accepted forever and all generations our "collective guilt" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stuttgart_Declaration_of_Guilt) following protestant Martin Niemöllers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Niem%C3%B6ller) take on it we might think/belive different than other nations citizens), but I keep telling a German joke about this complex and challenging question, and usually it hits home with any culture, the joke goes more or less along the following lines (abbreviated version here):

Small village at the coast in Germany and a storm flood is announced. Villagers gather in the church, and the pastor (we are protestants up there) holds his sermon and asks for relief.

Suddenly, the boss of the village fire fighters comes in and advises: "Folks, the flood is now only 30 minutes out, it will bring a water level raise of around 10 metres, my recommendation is to abondon village and get the hell out of here".

People leave, but the pastor stays. Re-alerted by the firefighter he answers something along: "Son, dont you worry about me, I am a faithful servant to God, and I have no doubt that he will hold his hand over me and protect me".

The fire fighter shrugs, and leaves. About 30 minutes later, now by boat and on a routine check he turns up in the church again, sees the pastor up to the hip in the water and repeats his urgent plea to leave with him. Still, he gets the same reply.

Now, another half hour later they come back to the church and see that the pastor is just barely holding out with his nose above the raising water level and, now really urgently, try to convince him to abandon, just to be answered on the same line: "Dont you worry, God will protect me".

Anoterh 5 minutes go by, the pastor drowns, as was previsible. Approaching pearly gates he is steaming with anger, and when he gets first sight of God he shouts at him: "Fuck, you deceived me! How could you let this happen? I was your true servant for 50 years, always trusting you to get everything straightened out and protecting me and us believers, and, after all this, you really got the guts to let me drown??!!"

God gives him a serene look and answers: "I really dont have the faintest clue what you are complaining about:  Look, I sent in the fire fighters to fetch you THREE times, aint that enough?"

-----

This joke has some profoundness, we are so fast to charge god with evil things happening here ("...deity I get to grill for the mess created..."), when it is actually *we* who would have the oportunity and the means to avoid the mess, but  so often we dont.

From my POV, if this happens, it is not really automatically gods fault (if we believe in that the bible holds his words): He told us quite clearly what to do, he gave us the means to do it, but if we dont and live disasters and atrocities or go to war, whos fault is it? It is we who are responsible for what happens around us (human made), not god. I think this goes both for agnostics and believers.

OK, this said, now I have to post a song... Lets go with a band I dont know, but a song I know:

Well the firefighters never showed up in the Nam...

My take on this is, an all loving , omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent God, should have his shit together well enough to not make innocents suffer. Failing that, a boot in the ass is his/her due. You are of course correct in that it is man's evil that creates the hell on earth we live in, but a hand from the Boss looks to be in order, but he is absent without leave.

Hence my desire to grill him/her.

Never heard of him, and I am confident you are not addressing me through this song but HIM/HER with that...  ;)

I am playing devils (or Gods?) advocate here (as I dont even believe in the guy, but basically can follow and like the concept: Jesus´ ideas are my hippie ones as well, but I realize you get nailed to a tree for them in our world):

From (a hypotetical and omnipotent, omniscient and *loving*) god POV things are quite easy:

He tells us some 10 simple orders to follow, and he will take care of stuff in return. He even (in the NT) allows for us to slip and still saves us from hell as he made his son die for our sins.

The rules are simple, but where does anybody follow them?

What is even more interesting, the rules are more or less the same in all religions, still: Nobody follows them, we even employ lot of brain cells to explain why this and that rule is not really what it appears and hence following or not is open to interpretation, or, as explained below we deliberately change the wording to fit us not obeying.

Check out:

10 commandments according to the Christian Belief transmitted by God to Moses (I know, Moses destroyed those of Exodus 20 later (http://godlesspaladin.files.wordpress.com/2010/12/10-commandments1.png) and changed them to the ones reported in Exodus 34, but we still take them as Gospel and agree that those are our 10):
(http://www.turnbacktogod.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/10-commandments-explained.jpg)

In Qouran, the commandments delivered through Alas prophet Muamad  are not much different, just worded differently, I put them parallel to our Christian ones, citing chapter/verse in case you want to look it up yourselves:

Quote
1:
 - "There is no other god beside GOD,"(47:19)

2:
- "There is nothing that equals (like) Him. (42:11)

- "No visions can encompass Him, but He encompasses all visions. He is the Compassionate, the Cognizant.[6:103]"

- "My Lord, make this a peaceful land, and protect me and my children from worshiping idols". (14:35)

3:
- "Do not subject God's name to your casual swearing, that you may appear righteous, pious, or to attain credibility among the people". (2:224)"

4:
- "....and your parents shall be honored. As long as one or both of them live, you shall never say to them, "Uff" (the slightest gesture of annoyance), nor shall you shout at them; you shall treat them amicably." (17:23)

5:
- "The thief, male or female, you shall mark (NOTE: Not ampute! R.) their hands as a punishment for their crime, and to serve as an example from God". (5:38 - 39)

6:
- "...God's condemnation upon him, if he was lying." (24:7)

- "O you who believe, you shall be absolutely equitable, and observe God, when you serve as witnesses, even against yourselves, ... . Whether the accused is rich or poor, God takes care of both. Therefore, do not be biased by your personal wishes. If you deviate or disregard (this commandment), then God is fully cognizant of what you do.[4:135]

7:

- "...anyone who murders any person who had not committed murder or horrendous crimes, it shall be as if he murdered all the people. (5:32)

- "You shall not kill any person - for God has made life sacred... (17:33)  (Here the Qouran differs from the simple "Thou shalt not kill" of the Bible, as the verse goes on: "...except in the course of justice." Modern - as of 2000 - Christian translation has adapted and has changed the wording of the literal Bible translation to "You shall not murder" ([url]http://books.google.es/books?id=HGuW6v85qiMC&printsec=frontcover&dq=you+shall+not+kill+original+wording&source=bl&ots=GSJxVxB6FS&sig=zLV1CTt-bJqSTQ5i12zLedCtslk&hl=es&ei=ifcVTfe1MJCy8QPu3LzbDw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CC0Q6AEwAg#v=onepage&q=you%20shall%20not%20kill%20original%20wording&f=false[/url]) - see above -, probably to semantically leave the door open for "allowed" killings that are not murder by law, think war executions, Drone assasinations or death penalty. This was not what was in the 10Cs, there it is simple and clear:  "Lo tirtzack" in Hebrew, which accurately translates as "Thou shalt not do any kind of killing whatsoever." [url]http://www.thenazareneway.com/thou_shalt_not_kill.htm[/url] ([url]http://www.thenazareneway.com/thou_shalt_not_kill.htm[/url]) R.)

8:
- "You shall not commit adultery; it is a gross sin, and an evil behavior". (17:32)

9:
- "...do not covet what we bestowed upon any other people. Such are temporary ornaments of this life, whereby we put them to
the test. What your Lord provides for you is far better, and everlasting".[20:131]

10:
- "O you who believe, when the Congregational Prayer (Salat
Al-Jumu`ah) is announced on Friday, you shall hasten to the commemoration of GOD, and drop all business. . (62:9)



Even African tribes, Hndus, Buddhists or Native Americans have their own set which does not differ in the central parts, especially where life is sacred:

The Native American Ten Commandments, music: Sacred Spirit Vol. 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DY3ZEvOfD1w#)

I cannot philosophically congruently hold grudge to a deity who tells us what to do and how to do it, just because the result comes out horribly when *we* humans - partially consciously and intentionally - dont follow them. Sacerdotes "blessing" arms all over the planets cultures and religions in the name of a god who forbids to kill? Go figure...

FWIW,

Off thread line (as it currently goes) back to plain music without other levels of conception.

One goes (http://ohlmer.es/blog/925), one comes.

In this case from my POV "Enrique Morente´s" place is to be taken by a guy "Pitingo", just 30 years old and a bit of a "Macarra" (= a guy with too much gel in his hair, trying to impress the ladies because in the basic he is insecure), but with a voice that is the best Spain has to offer at this time, and also with a history of crossing over: His main successes came from  - he lives in the US - mixing classic Soul songs with his unique Flamenco voice, here one example, a song we all know but havent heard like that, it even branded a new Flamenco style here, the "Souleria" (this, for Jilly, he definitely knows to be a ladies man better than we here):

PITINGO: Killing me softly with this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gwmj5nK3udU#noexternalembed)

From my POV not enough to back up my statement from above -  he *is* a "macarra" after all (just look at the hair-do (thats NOT a hair CUT!) -, but listen to this one, you will note as Flamenco fan (or not) that he has the material to become a great maestro if he should get rid of his macarrism and aquire a personality in the future (total classic, and even "a capella", so that one goes for Koen):

Pitingo fandango: "Me voy a morir" ("I will die") (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLUtHF-omOY#)

Too much classic for you? Then, how about a mix of the two?

Pitingo - Gwendolyne Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFwGgtiGAWk#)

It may sound here as if I did not value him and am very critical, but this then is an account of not finding the vids I searched for in time, voice- and perfomancewise the guy is on my list for the best (with the restricition of "becoming a person" that I mentioned before)

One last in the short time I have to search, this time its two songs that have both sides: This incredible classic voice (KOEN: With guitar!) and then a "Georgia on my Mind" interpretation... My favorite to explain why I think he will be top in 10 yrs...:

pitingo bulerias(san sebastian parte 2 de 3) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwhJOb3jOoA#)

Coldplay are one of the better bands that surged in the last year, very many great songs.

Here now, some jazzistic violence:

Who or what is that guy? Drummer? Singer? Bass genious?

I dont really know, but he is my Band Leader of the year choice, the Cuban musician Alain Pérez, a maniac not unlike Zappa, with his unique "salsa jazz":

DEC 28, 2010: The Pentagon announced today the formation of an Elite Fighting Group dubbed the "US Redneck Special Forces (USRSF): Bubba, Hoss, Cooter and Boo will be dropped behind enemy lines with following information about the Taliban:

- The season opened last weekend
- There is no limit
- They taste just lilke chicken
- They dont like beer, picups, country music nor Jesus
- Some is queer
- They are directly responsible for the death of Dale Earnhardt  ([url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dale_Earnhardt[/url])


Go figure...  ;D

JFTR, I actually like this tune...  :whistle: (gotta turn it up a bit to get the full impact, strange for the issue in question this is a low volume recording): "Aint going down til the sun comes up"!

I (as a time traveller, coming from Beteigeuze but not finding my way home, FourtyTwo all the way!) would prolly not survive more than a few hours between them...

As promised, here a glimpse of the band we have for our NYE dinner tonight, but from their private side (tonight they turn up as one of those bands you know all that play for ... dinners, gotta make a buck, no?)  iconclap

I have only found one vid, and its bad quality, so bad that it is almost unrecognizable, so take it as an appetizer only and follow up on the mp3 links below.

Those are links to uploaded fiiles directly (but without pics) in excellent quality that give a bit more of an idea of what excelent funk-groove music might be expecting us later this night: Reminds me a bit (actually very much) of Santi Latorre that I published before, the same take and the same sound to some extent:

Santi Latorre, "Y que?!" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBu_MNpZWFY#)

Well, here is our musician of tonight, Alex Maldonado

Maldonado, "Quiero vivir bajo el agua" ("Want to live benath the water"):

MALDONADO "Quiero vivir bajo el agua" En directo 2009 (Presentación Cd) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ee1gitBy_WQ#)

Two mp3 music files (first is the same song as in the vid, the second is on the same riff, but "saxxed") in good quality:

http://www.warandtactics.com/Music/01%20Quiero%20vivir%20bajo%20el%20agua%201.m4a (http://www.warandtactics.com/Music/01%20Quiero%20vivir%20bajo%20el%20agua%201.m4a)

------ EDITs 030111 on request of the music author and owner, as I had been able to publish the music in this post by courtesy of his label:

- Corrected misspelling: Name of the author and band is "Alex Maldonado" (and NOT "Alex Maldonato" as I had put it, sorry, Alex!)

- Removed the 2nd mp3 track (as it is supposed not to be published but to be a gimmick for ppl who actually buy the CD).

- Adding links to Alex´ sites where you can listen to more and get the CD:

1. iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/es/album/maldonado/id358515927 (http://itunes.apple.com/es/album/maldonado/id358515927)

LtCol Koen, with all due respect:

Just for starters and so you dont feel too much attacked (I know you got a weak spot there), I like what you posted, all are favorites of me under a certain aspect.

OTOH what I dont like (and I am a simple user, so take with a grain of salt, your command rules) is flooding this musically exceptional channel with mediocre music and all from one genre, and over two posts to avoid the limits (that were made with a reason).

I know, this sounds like an attack, but I DONT MEAN IT as one, just expressing my user purism here):

(Rant/SoapBox Mode ON)

I understand there are many polls out there about music, the last I read yesterday made Briteny Spears the "Best Musician of The Century". Please, seriously, double check what is left if you take away what makes a musician, and then make up your mind again about polls...

Britney Spears microphone live - what she REALLY sounds like! (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7z06NISh-NY#)

Are you proposing that, because elected by a mainly ignorant audience (Britney also made the richest young musician with 20+ millions in 2010), we others with a basic idea of music (and you have showed so often that you have it) have to follow suit?

Are there no other musicians that we have so proudly presented on our channel that deserve much more attention?

I also like Britney songs, in their environment, but I will never call them important, and, what for me is more important, you report a poll with vids ***without*** your OWN (boy, youre the boss, no?) opinion:

Of the 5 songs, which one do **YOU** like? Frankly, that would be the thingy to interest me, the polls I can see also on the net or on TV, and I could post about 20 every day, with no significance whatsoever (DO YOU READ ME, SIR???)

Oh, you dont like any? Why do you post them then?

Oh, you like #2? Why then not say so and put it into discussion as something that is *you* and makes a forum?

I know you are - like me - a music freak, but WHY THEN NOT EXPRESS YOUR TASTE (in *every* post)?  To cite polls, reports, etc, will never explain to us mere mortals why you tolerate and furbish a music thread here, and less so where your heart goes. Are you not with your heart here?

If you (and anybody else) just puts reports in for discussion on a forum without leaning to any side, that is called "baiting": "Lets see who reacts, then we will answer": Bad, bad, bad. Pooh, pooh, pooh. Urrrggghhh, urrggghhh, urrrggghhh.

This said, we are in the last minutes of the leaving year, maybe you get a better approach next year convincing us users that this is necessary (or WaT will have an user minus within the next hour?)

JFTR: I am ready to depart anytime, you dont have to take shit from me under no circumstances, this is your forum.

But, then, this - for me most precious and important - thread started by FACMan under some serious ideas I hold so dear that I feel it deserves a respect I will not shod just because a commander orders to go mediocre, based on polls. If J. or anybody puts up a song I dont like, I can stand that, and even appreciate it, as it is his/her opinion and I respect it and even might learn something from it, open my hoizons kindof.

OTOH, to put on 5+ songs that *other people*, completely alienate to this thread, have chosen comes over as an insult to me, sorry: I am, in everything, a purist (and not saying thats the way to go): This is OUR music thread, and - from my POV - youre part of it, LTC or not.

Do as you like, I am your friend, and at your disposition (but definitely angry).

Kindest, and with some more music, from *MY* opinion (just, and as we all are going into a new decade, to explain better what I mean):

Bach, well tempered piano (Clavier)?

I am sure you heard it named, music freaks you are, but it could be you dont know what it means exactly, and why it is the basis for *all* todays modern/western music:

In early times most instruments were either blown or stroked, and the piano as such did not exist: The "Harpsichord" was the instrument that you touched with keys (as in "keyboard"), but, as all others, it was tuned to just one tone:

If you play a violin and follow straight harmonic rules, halving the string gets you up one certain level of tones (an octave), quartering a string gets you up one quart etc... Harmonic. And not interchangable: A Quint from "C" (= "G") wont be *exactly* the same as a Quart from "d" (= G"), only today its the same, and this because Mr. Bach thought it up. Before his invention it would represent the *true* harmonic vibration, but would be different from any key started.

This was a problem for centuries, until this guy, J. S. Bach had the  urock brilliant idea of "slightly" reducing the true harmonies to accomadate them in total over the take of 12 notes (which we use today), he called it "tempering well": He reduced the "natural" vibrations to some "logical" vibrations and invented so the 12-tone system, in which every quart from "D" is the sametone exactly  as a quint" from "C" or a septim from "A".

As nobody believed this was possible (before his invention all orchestras had to be written into one key only), he composed and published a series of 12x Preludes and Fugues, all played on his newly (and differently: "well tempered") tuned piano, in all 12 keys, from C major to B minor, just to show practically that it worked.

Wow! A cornerstone for modern music!

But, he went way further in his quest:

He challenged himself to not only to show that it would work within all keys, but also with up to 5 "voices" playing the same "theme"..., his "test" had to be "spectacular", else he feared it would not triumph with people like Händel or other important Baroc musicians around who challenged each others all the time intellectually from their respective kings` courts over distance.

He was a mathematician (as all serious artists in that time he was pluri-interested and pluri-educated: Astronomy, Maths, Physics, Religion, Painting, Poetry, Music, all was the same for those guys), his musical result is what still stands for being "German" today, pure logic, mathematical harmony and sensitive overload...

Check this, for an example: The Prelude and Fugue in C-Major (first key on his "well tempered" piano). I put up the videop for you to enjoy, but I want to enlighten you a bit more about the background, so: Enjoy the Prelude (which will - yes, some catholics copied it - remind you of the "Ave Maria"), but then bear with me for the minutes after 02:08 into the vid when the fugue starts (the prelude occupies 2 mins), I will show you what I am talking about.

The version is by Friedrich Goulda, for me the best ever interpretor of Bachs ideas: While even I as a dilletant can play the prelude mreasonably well, only ppl likehim can produce the fugue the way it should sound and how Bach genious anticipated it, slowly and to hear every detail:

Prelude and Fugue No. 1 in C major, BWV 846, from Bach's Well-tempered Clavier, Gulda pianist (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KQW2YnCUrE#)

Ok, so you have listened to it (and did not stop at 2:05?). Now, look at the genious behind it from the notes: It does not matter if you cannot read notes in detail, but, what goes up is "Up!" and reverse, just understading this is enough to follow what I want to explain:

Here you can see the theme (which are the first notes you hear from 2:08 til 2:18 in the vid) as he put it, repeating it 6 times and topping the same tune one on top of the other, 6 times stacked, still sonds harmonic (and dit this times 12):

(http://www.warandtactics.com/Images/bach_1.gif)

That is not all:

If you take a closer look (or listen more closely) you will see he also then twisted the notes around (called "mirrored", literally: What goes up goes down and vice versa), reversed the theme (called "crabbing", same notes, but played in reversed order from behind to the front) and some more stuff, I will add the orignial sheets for you to find the patterns (its not that hard, if you listen and follow the notes with your fingers, again I am refering to the fugue, 2 mins+ into the vid).

The absolutely amazing thing about the well tempered piano is that Bach not only managed to show this system (and that it worked) through all the 12 keys, but that even it is composed on pure mathematical basics it makes for an absolutely harmonic and "complete" hearing effect. Dont worry if you either can only follow one "voice" or the whole "unison" chorus, even best professional musicians cannot differenciate it, our brain is not made for this (if your surname should be Bach you at least have a genetical chance to prove this scientific fact wrong).

How he wrote it (and it is well documented that he wrote stuff like this just from memory, ready to print, like Zappa):

(http://www.warandtactics.com/Images/bach_1_org.gif)

(http://www.warandtactics.com/Images/bach_2.gif)

Now, with this knowledge, listen to it once more, and maybe even to the catholic copy of the Ave Maria:

Prelude and Fugue No. 1 in C major, BWV 846, from Bach's Well-tempered Clavier, Gulda pianist (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KQW2YnCUrE#)

And no, I dont want to start a discussion about singers qualities here, personally I *hate* the Ave Maria....

Pavarotti & Bono - Ave Maria (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpYDcfDpeQA#noexternalembed)

FWIW, with a clearly stated opinion,

All have a great and happy New Year 2011!

Comparing Britney Spears and her election with the top 5 of the StuBru list is absurd.
That's comparing a bycicle with a potatoe.

Dec 31 in it's last hours with most people not posting/writing anymore gives them the opportunity to listen to some good music, it should be allowed to post at that certain moment content that doesn't need to be studied/discussed.
Furthermore, nobody stops people from replying to the videos, like you did.

What songs I like the most in that Top 4? Best group is without doubt Led Zeppelin (in the list and in generally in the music world), most enjoyable song is Child in Time and Nirvana is on no.1 not because it's the best song neither THEIR best song but because of the impact the song had when it was released.

Quote
OTOH, to put on 5+ songs that *other people*, completely alienate to this thread, have chosen comes over as an insult to me, sorry

Who says I don't like these songs? who says I only posted them because they were in a list? I posted them because A. I was listening to them on the radio, B. They were in a list always played on Dec.31st, C. I LIKE THEM!
If/when you want to feel insulted you're free to do so. There's no reason to do so....

This said, we are in the last minutes of the leaving year, maybe you get a better approach next year convincing us users that this is necessary (or WaT will have an user minus within the next hour?)

Another favourite singer I heard on the radio here yesterday (not much played) is a German singer.
He had a small role in Das Boot.
With songs as Der Weg, Halt mich and more, brilliant composer some people named him the German Springsteen.

Just happened to see TA on the shoutbox, threatening to put out his nerdy ideas about who Max Headroom was, so I decided to beat him (as always actually, we Rattlers dont think so much) and present my own take... (Amazing, no? What a little phrase can trigger?)

As you all probably know by now, TA and me stem from the same region, origins and (probably) the same genes even, but we have different ideas (have a look at our sigs to see what I mean), here is my take on the guy I had *COMPLETELY* forgotten though he once was one of my heroes (thanks Jilly, thanks TA, for reminding me of him!). Actually, why not have him back? Anybody out there to try and risk? ... 80s are TOP NOTCH again!...!? Might be a money maker!

This is the best New Years wishes (think POSITIVE! I am writing this from my twisted brains POV, and just FTR: I am NOT going to commit suicide soon...  ;D) I could have found (but didnt find them in time - as I had forgotten them), from my heart and youth,

Title: Re: The Omnipresent, currently playing (music) thread...
Post by: TechAdmin on 3 January 2011, 20:30:17
Indeed, you beat me! Again!

Here the, as you say, "nerdy" POV:

Max Headroom was not necessarily a person (though many assume that denying it is just another conspiration of the mason-military-industrial-complex), but basically a TV series (BRITISH and NOT US, btw, for those who believed differently, 89% according to the last poll in 1989).

Max (an artifical intellligence, first on eover on screen, and powered by Matt Frewer) became a minor celebrity outside the television series. He was the spokesman for New Coke (after the return of Coke Classic), delivering the slogan "Catch the wave!" (in his trademark staccato, stuttering playback as "Ca-ca-ca-ca-ca-catch the wave!"). In the UK, Max appeared in television commercials for Radio Rentals. He also hosted an interview show on the Cinemax cable channel, called The Original Max Talking Headroom Show.

So, series, TV spots, commercials, Video Game, (and even Hacker), very present in the adolescent of the beginning 80s.

But, point in time: He made clear predicitons in 1985-1988 that you might want to check out (promised it will make you kinda cringe, probably, as all those things more or less are history by now in RL):

More or less on track:

31 March 1987: Investigative TV news reporter Edison Carter uncovers the disturbing secret of a new TV technology in use by his own employers, Network 23, called "Blipverts," high-intensity commercials with the ability to overload people's nervous system /happened in US where sublimal promo made two ppl go crazy)

21 April 1987: Carter attempts to uncover the identity of the unknown buyer attempting to acquire Security Systems...but soon finds himself on the run from the police when his identity profile is erased from the government databanks. Happened in germany when the data of one citizen were errouneously erased and he was held custody for more than a year without charges, base for a German (Peng, youre dead) and an US (Memoento) movie...

5 May 1987: A group of "Blanks", anarchists who removed themselves from the government's central databanks, threaten to use a powerful virus program to wipe out the city's entire computer network and everything connected to it. (Wikileaks/Anonymous, anybody?)

Not resolved yet:

9 October 1987: In an attempt to get an edge over the major networks, a subscription cable channel turns to airing recorded dream sequences. When Carter begins researching a story on dream recording, he learns that the process can have fatal side effects for the donors. Sounds more realistically expectable then then today.

unaired in the U.S. (Oh, the Irony! THere we are closest to such stuff!): While researching a story on genetically engineered "designer babies," Carter discovers that babies with exceptionally high IQs are being stolen from their parents just before being "born" to be used for a new TV show on Network 66. (Although unaired as part of the original U.S run, "Baby Grobags" was shown as part of the Australian series run)

He was the first visible "Cyber Punk", here to his memory:

Paranoimia (feat. Max Headroom) - Art Of Noise (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KUEQ4nWv7Y#)

He even told jokes (ATTN German Speakers!):

Max Headroom is for me always and ever linked to Art of Noise: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_of_noise (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_of_noise) (I know that I post this link before  ;) )

ofcourse you have the several versions of 'Moments in Love' which is a superb lovesong  :champ:

but they have more super songs and albums, personally their albums should be listened to as albums... sit down and listen to a COMPLETE album (some kind of Pink Floyd rule: http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/08/17/pink_floyd_albums_removed_from_itunes_after_record_contract_expires.html (http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/08/17/pink_floyd_albums_removed_from_itunes_after_record_contract_expires.html) )
Quote
According to Gibson Lifestyle, Pink Floyd has won a lawsuit against EMI in March, allowing it to block the sale of individual songs on services like iTunes. A High Court in the U.K. determined that the band could "preserve the artistic integrity" of whole albums by not breaking them up into individual song sales.

... or else the videopolice will get on my neck  hihi


Vid Police? Where!?  :cover: (FANTASTIC song, btw!)

We got a language police now in Mallorca, 170 inspectors double checking you dont speak (only) Spanish (in Spain!!), they caught my www.ohlmer.es (http://www.ohlmer.es) website and I got fined Euros 1.000 for having parts in Spanish but nothing in Catalan (and I dont even live in Catalunya, at least from my POV, last I had a look at the map I was in Baleares....).

As this is for another (bitter) thread, lets go on with music instead, not in Catalan, but at least with Spanish connotations... This is personal, you can see this lady with my instrument (but I come from Piano and Bass, so I know to handle the white keys stuff on the right more or less, but the black buttons on the left still have me overpowered and resist themselves to be conquered by my clumsy fingers). This said: The instrument of the future (if you want to make a living on the peatonal zones of our island after the (!boy, are they good!) Romanians have made their way home again....

Of course, I am in one of my rant modes again (jokingly), this 1.000 Eus fine just had me go up the walls and now all fake musicians get it!

I mean, this is the same as Catalan vs. Spanish, a fake musician playing (fake and playback) electronic trumpet accordeon music....! Who TF is Annie Gong anyway, plz?

Miss Gong (Who TF is Miss Annie Gong, plz??), mistreating this cherished instrument, with "Flight of the Bumble Bee", interesting (and most challenging Rimsky-Korsakov) tune and while she sure copes better than I would within the next year, but: Fake! to playback (check out the fingers), still will have brought her her visitors (coded as I dont want her diletantism ruin this nice posts limits):
Code:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciEBsDNryN8

My response (and why I am not going to play the street until the Romanians left), true art, and showing what this instrument can hold, I wont reach not half the level and if I constantly practiced 20 years 3 hours daily: The sound of Palma City at midday (I saw three today on my walk through the center, around 300 mtrs apart each, each as good: As they say in Russia: "Accordeon plays you"):

Ouch, dont know what happened, but wrote a post and cannot find it anymore here, will try to rephrase (but 2nd brews arent as good):

My take expressed in before post was that he was kind of a rebel against the music system which supported him ( hatsoff), and that his own stance today shows there are not many left like him where the mold simply gets destroyed when the song is done:

Quote
...meanwhile back in the music business, the beat goes on and on / selling my soul to the company man when there' s nothing left to lean upon...



Well, there are still some powerful songs to remember him, at least this one is to be taken seriously:

While not in the US, THIS TAKES PLACE *TODAY*, in a Central European Country, Spain. Basic citizens rights disabled, "every Spaniard has the obligation to work" (Artículo 35: 1. Todos los españoles tienen el deber de trabajar... (http://noticias.juridicas.com/base_datos/Admin/constitucion.t1.html)) most of us would like to but cannot follow the order, because THERE IS NO WORK... Others do, reluctantly, as they dont get paid, forced at gun point to do stuff... (all airports and ATC are under military control ATM, one soldier behind each controller 24/7 with a gun aimed: Controllers have -under the State of Alarm- been mobilized and now are mil personnell).

THIS IS NO JOKE!

Still, because ef envy, 71% of the Spaniards support the measure (probably not understanding it affects them all is my guess), an end is not in sight...

Disgrace in the name of a "democractic" government: Martial Law first time ever invoked after end of Franco Dictatorship (where it was the standard layout), invoked by decrete for 15 days on DEC 4, then prolonged indefinitely by parliament with the votes of our Socialist govereing party against the abstenation of all others...

Today we passed DAY 34 under Martial Law (Stage 1: "Stage of Alarm", unconstitutional as it in theory only applies for a war - "To combat material shortage in the face of an External Threat" - scenario), a disgrace worthwile for any dictatorship, Stalinism for us, and I am twisting and cringing as a Socialist myself to call for voting them out now:

PARIS - Martial Law Music Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAnuAo_Sa-o#ws)

Our vicepresident (and Minister of Interior), Mr. Rubalcaba, trying to explain the unexplainable (sorry, not much music in this one, the faces of all our involved ministers tell the story all by itself), that the ATC folks now "...are officially mobilized under the "State of Alarm" and henceforth have to respond to the military penal code..."

OK, tuned into piano through the last post, and within the limits youtube puts up to us (cannot really give you what I want until they allow at least min 30 mins of uninterrupted music vids, live with what I can put up within the 10 mins limit), what about this maniac (I checked: Though I thought differently he still is alive, by now over 60) musician who does the most submersive piano sound ever?

Check it out and tell me you dont like it: Mr. Keith Jarrett!

Born on my birthday, he has had a career everybody my age will know, but we havent heard anything of him lately (i.e. the last 10 yrs):

Quote
Keith Jarrett (born May 8, 1945, in Allentown, Pennsylvania) is an American pianist/composer who has performed in both jazz and classical music.

Jarrett started his career with Art Blakey, moving on to play with Charles Lloyd and Miles Davis. Since the early 1970s he has enjoyed a great deal of success in both jazz and classical music, as a group leader and a solo performer. His improvisations draw not only from the traditions of jazz, but from other genres as well, especially Western classical music, gospel, blues, and ethnic folk music.

In 2003, Jarrett received the Polar Music Prize, the first (and to this day only) recipient not to share the prize with a co-recipient, and in 2004 he received the Léonie Sonning Music Prize.

In 2008, he was inducted into the Down Beat Hall of Fame by the Down Beat 73rd Annual Jazz Readers' Poll.

Yes, one of the well known Spanish Classic Guitarreros. Pity he died in the late 90s, has been missed ever since.

One of his successors in classical guitar music (probably the most well known in Spain atm: Robert Rodrigo) has another side, also fascinating, as a hobby he does excellent Rock and Heavy, of course w/o plectrum (if you think you see one, its just his thumb nail)..., for a special comrade of mine that we miss big time here:

This for Koen:

I have not being contesting totally seriously to your post of the Aranjuez Concert, and I am currently on the phone having a very angry ex wife "counting me down the 40" for my reply (and, as almost always really, she is right once more).

The piece as such is well known, probably the most (the Adiagio, I am refering to) interpreted Spanisch classical piece world wide, but, as Joana points out, the version you are hearing (as everything here in Spain is politics) is the version of the "Franco" times early 70s (wont go into detail here as the involved are dead, but she is right).

There exists a version that certainly is not Franco, and it is played by probably the best guitar player Spain currently has. Koen, lets see whether you like it (its a different interpretaion, but exactly the same partiture, note by note), the meaning is different:

Post by: Rattler on 16 January 2011, 22:19:29
I just saw a program about vocal artists in general (focusing on Al Jarreau) and it reminded me of a singer that is widely underestimated:

I want to take a moment and remind you of a Bobby McFerrin, a singer we all instantly will connect with a piece nobody can stand anymore after having heard it 200 times...

Truth is, that he - a bit like Jarreau - is a serious Jazzer and Vocal Artist (mainly bases this art on his "head voice" soprano and breast slapping "human beatbox" style) and whenever I heard him in various combos over the year I was delighted, and I am looking forward to see him in Palma next week during our festivities (yes, for us holidays are not over yet: Since Thursday festivities of St. Anthony, and then all next week Palma will shut down for St. Sebastian, its saint).

Time to officially save the reputation of this man on our thread, and as we are proud here to present always something a "bit different", some examples (and of course my immortal hate piece "Dont Worry" for the main stream lovers  :D)

First, with an Al Jarreau/John Coltrane classic, true "Vocal Art" in the sense it is meant:

Bobby McFerrin - My Favorite Things (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wqplKtzWpI#)

This one then explains the connection Bach-First Prelude-Ave Maria better than my earlier post about the theme:

Bobby McFerrin - Ave Maria (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgvJg7D6Qck#)

Here, at Montreal Jazz Festival with Jorane Riopel on her cello, a very beautiful and different piece from the Jazz scene:

Bobby McFerrin & Jorane - Montreal Jazz Festival (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrQC1yTO0MU#)

And, as gimmick as announced, the piece I cannot stand for my life, even if I dont have cash, nor style, nor gal:

A nice song I really like, even if its old: Randy Newman´s "Short People"

Quote
Short people got no reason
Short people got no reason
Short people got no reason
To live

They got little hands
Little eyes
They walk around
Tellin' great big lies
They got little noses
And tiny little teeth
They wear platform shoes
On their nasty little feet

Well, I don't want no short people
Don't want no short people
Don't want no short people
`Round here

Short people are just the same
As you and I
(A fool such as I)
All men are brothers
Until the day they die
(It's a wonderful world)

Short people got nobody
Short people got nobody
Short people got nobody
To love

They got little baby legs
That stand so low
You got to pick em up
Just to say hello
They got little cars
That go beep, beep, beep
They got little voices
Goin' peep, peep, peep
They got grubby little fingers
And dirty little minds
They're gonna get you every time
Well, I don't want no short people
Don't want no short people
Don't want no short people

With the speed topics are getting moved, I have to post something here just to keep it on the "Recent Posts" list...  ;)

Interesting experiment, from various angles:

The song is the theme to "Jurassic Park", BUT slowed down 100x (it claims 1000% - which is ridiculous all by itself, as a claim: 100% is the max existing - , but 100x is what it is). Produced like this it sounds absolutely fascinating for a great chill out, and it takes 54 minutes to listen to it.

This is the other angle: Someone (AFAIK this should not be possible) managed somehow to post a 54 minutes vid to youtube. Something TA has to investigate, and big time, new horizons are opened if we learn the trick.

OK, Valentines day again, this year this one is my choice (for my gal, I have more ample choices to address men, for widows, for widowers, for separees, etc).

A bit of a stupid song, but as we had the theme discussed here on WaT and as for some days I cannot get it out of my head (earworm, implanted from one of the morning music programs we have here between 0430 and 0600 every day), translation by yours truly.:

Quote
Que fue de aquel Caballero, que de pequeña me hablaron / What happened to this knight they told me about when I was small
De aquel romántico Hidalgo que luchó desesperado, / to this romantic nobleman who fought desperately,
Desubicado en el tiempo, por conquistar un pasado / desorientated in time, for conquering a past
Por vivir en un presente, por no morir desterrado, / to live in a present, to not die in exile
Por no morir desterrado. / to not to die in exile

Caballero Enamorado, de un amor que vive preso / Knight in love, prisoner of a love who lives
En un reloj que está parado, / in a clock that has stopped
Donde nunca hubo presente, ni futuro, ni pasado, / (who lives) where never existed present, nor future, nor past
Donde la guerra fue viento de un molino abandonado. / where war was wind from an abandoned mill.

Caballero Enamorado, de una mujer, de un te quiero, / knight in love, of a woman who does not love you
De un rocinante cansado, / of a "Rosinante" that is tired
De un sabio que de escudero siempre cabalgó a su lado, / of a wise man that as body guard always travels at your side
De una Dulcinea perdida, de un amor imaginado. / of a lost "Dulcinea", of an imagined love...

Que fue de aquel Caballero al que dicen me parezco / What happened to this knight of whom they say I am like him
Alonso Quijote, hermano, tanto honor yo no merezco / Alonso Quijote, brother, I dont deserve so much honor
Buscando a mi Dulcinea, me identifico contigo, / searching for my Dulcinea I identify with you
Quijote mi gran maestro, Alonso mi buen amigo, / Quijote, my great teacher, Alonso, my good friend
Alonso, mi buen amigo. / Alonso, my good friend

Noble Hidalgo equivocado, / Noble nobleman living in a constant error
Que errante busca un destino que pertenece a un pasado, / who in his error searches for a destiny that belongs to a past long ago
Pobre infeliz peregrino, vagabundo enamorado / poor unhappy pilgrim, vagabund in love
De una Dulcinea perdida, de un amor equivocado. / with a lost Dulcinea, of an erroneous love

Caballero Enamorado, de un amor que vive preso / Knight in love, prisoner of a love who lives
En un reloj que está parado, / within a clock that has stopped
Donde nunca hubo presente, ni futuro, ni pasado, / where never existed present, nor future, nor past
Donde la guerra fue viento de un molino abandonado. / where war was just wind of an abandoned mill.

Caballero Enamorado, / knight in love
De un amor imaginado, / in an imagined love
De Béjar Enamorado. / From "Bejar" and in love...

Are those not nice lyrics? And an "earworm" tune...!

*I* at least, yes, I can identify with him....

100%!

"Made in Japan" was the first *album* I ever bought (my first single was Beatles - "Michelle"), because before the early 70s I only had a (Grundig "Majestic") record player part of a radio/turntable combo as in the picture below - radio and amp all vacuum tubes and needed replacing some off and on - that could just do 78 and 45 (the below 30yrs old ones here wont even faintly know what I am talking about). The great thing was that you could stack singles, and he would play them one after the other (15 IIRC). Also, the radio had SW, and I spent more than one night hidden under the sheets with earphones listening to and transcribimng military morse code transmissions when a kid (and learnt to "hear" up to around 120, which later served me well in the FSK. Still today can hear 80+).

While searching as TechAdmin the whole thread to prepare the ultimate "WaT Music Mix" playlist I stumbled on page 110 of this thread over this song, but I like this version better (the other one, from the movie, got deleted anyway), well worth a post:

Quote
You broke my heart cause I couldnt dance
You didnt even want me around
But now Im back
To show you I can really shake em down

Do you love me (I can really move)
Do you love me (Im in the groove)
Do you love me (do you love me)
Now that I can dance
Watch me now

(work, work) now work it out baby
(work, work) oh, youre driving me crazy
(work, work) with a little bit of soul now

Well I can mash potato (I can mash potato)
I can do the twist (I can do the twist)
Well do the funky funky chicken (do the funky funky chicken)
Well do you like it like this (do you like it like this)
Tell me (tell me)
Tell me

Do you love me (I can really move)
Do you love me (Im in the groove)
Do you love me (do you love me)
Now that I can dance
Watch me now

Do you love me (I can really move)
Do you love me baby (Im in the groove)
Do you love me (do you love me)
Now that I can dance
Watch me now

(work, work) now work it out baby
(work, work) Im gonna drive you crazy
(work, work) shake it up shake it up now

Now do you love me (I can really move)
Do you love me (Im in the groove)
Do you love me (do you love me)

Had not known of htose guys, probably because there are so many in this field...

Here a Spanish example vs. an US group ("Abortos de Satan" vs. "Vibrion"), I cannot make out national differences, to me all dark or black metal sounds more or less the same and is not recognized for musicians abilities...:

death y black metal español vs death y black metal americano (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMrvhQDBeKQ#)

The best known (in this field) band in Spain is probably "Ouija", so I will addd them to the mix, maybe Solideo likes them :)

Ouija - Crossing the Seventh Gate (black metal, 1997) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Muv4GUs_rxs#)

In comparison, I preferred Alice Cooper who started all this in the 70s (at least the words at that time seemed to make some sense to me, and his live shows were like theater):

Whos the sax with PF? Not Murray Dellow definitely, or is it?

Anyway, change of genre:

(Soft) Goth Metal? German? Yes! It exists, and not bad at all (more exit in the US as in DE): Xandria. Solideo prick up your ears!

Almost in all Uriah Heep (for ppl who remember the 70s) tradition, same epic guitar layout and arrangements but prepped up in what I find a very typical German form of adding choirs going pop, anybody feel free to correct me....

Xandria - Vampire [Lyrics] (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_9R4ZwWuxg#)
