I'll let Harry say it...

Never heard of him, and I am confident you are not addressing me through this song but HIM/HER with that...  Knipoog

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 and changed them to the ones reported in Exodus 34, but we still take them as Gospel and agree that those are our 10):


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" - 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." http://www.thenazareneway.com/thou_shalt_not_kill.htm 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


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,

Rattler

P.S.: Hey Jilly! Merry Christmas! R.

Off thread line (as it currently goes) back to plain music without other levels of conception.

One goes, 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 (External Embedding Disabled)

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")


Too much classic for you? Then, how about a mix of the two?

Pitingo - Gwendolyne Video


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)


2 PITINGO - SOULERIA (14 OCT 09 AVILA)-Georgia On My Mind


FWIW,

...a little tune to clear the fog from your head...

David Crosby - Song With No Words (Tree With No Leaves)

For some reason had completely missed this one on our thread (and, tor what its worth actually all page 34 posts), must have been AWOL at the time of its creation...

Anyway, luckily hit on it today as I was showing a friend the result of our collective labour here, and I am glad I did. Things (and songs) always come when you need them...

In the same musical spirit - though with words - from a band you probably wont have heard about (I think they just had this one hit plus another few 2nd sides), relaxes me:

Fallen - Blank & Jones (Delerium & Rani)


Enjoy!

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":


Singer:
Pero no termino - Alain Pérez - Videoclip en Alta Calidad


Incredible solist:
ALAIN PEREZ BASS SOLO EN EL AIRE


Drummer
Alain Pérez


Innovator:
Bach to Cuba - Emilio Aragon - Alain Pérez


Crossover experimentator:
Alain Perez al bajo junto a Paco de Lucia (Embedding disabled, limit reached)


I had the chance this year to see him in "Sa Taronja", our small cultural center, and I was duly impressed, the videos only tell half the story. A truly exceptional musician!

Enjoy!

Faith Hill had a song once that I cannot seem to find (I think it was called "Perpetual Bliss" or something similar) that one I liked a lot.

If for country gal type of ballads, this following one is more my direction of taste:

Scout Niblett (Feat. Will Oldham)

With all due respect, those gals/guys all seem a bit "redneck", both sound wise as optically...  ;

I admire their bravery and guts (despite a hunch that it might be fake, a result of simple ignorance towards threatening dangers), but thats about it:

Quote
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


Go figure...  Grijns

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...

Rednecks

Not working, just gives me the titles (doors, coldplay atm), but I cannot hear anything.

Does not matter, we can do our own end-of-year-music, what about this one, a classic for NJEs, every DJ half worth his money should have it in his repertoire this night (live New Years Eve 1978 at Winterland in San Francisco, opening for "Greatful Dead", last concert of the place before closing down):

Blues Brothers - Jailhouse Rock

wait a sec, you have Mac and it opens in WMP... maybe that's the problem

at 'instellingen' (bottom right) you can choose WMP - Quicktime - Real player... maybe that helps (would be nice to know you're listening to the same music  Knipoog )

... just changed my mind: Did not want to go out this night (as I am down with a severe cold), but maybe its time to get those old RayBans, the withe shirt and the mock slim tie out again, and hit it, feeling sick or not... In the end, its another decade finished (and the *big* fiesta of 2000 seems like yesterday)... So, now listening to all the other BB stuff... Smiley

I will (a bit later) post some music of the band we have here at the one official dinner in our small village (we managed to get 80 persons joint including 15 family of the restaurant owner and 25 stranded tourists) for our NYE... But the music will be *TOP*!

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?!"


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)


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

------ 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

2. youtube channel of Alex: http://www.youtube.com/user/lascomunicaciones

3. link to collaboration in the NYE layout (but unplugged), a medley of tunes with Christina White:



4. For the future: Alex´website (still a bit - much - in construction): www.alexmaldonado.es

------- END EDITs

Enjoy, and have a happy new year!
