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



Cultured Pearls - Kissing the Sheets


R. (drunk and emotional, down to tears as I write it, we all have our history, best: Ignore)

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...) ... Smiley

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


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 (External Embedding Disabled)


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


Enjoy!

He does!  whistle Danced to that on many a bar counter when he was younger Smiley

And to this one, along the same, but with a little more punch (you had to miss the champagne glasses on the counter with your feet when doing a prirouette on 20x20cm, else you were off the counter by bar rule, and that punch made it easier, as everybody would lift his glass at this moments...):

Anybody here knows what became of the guy??

Huey still plays on occasion in the SF Bay Area (where he started out). I met him at a Stones Concert (was sitting in front of me) quite the everyman personality, well grounded and his head still fits in any room.

A song by Paul Young.  I used to work in the West End of London at one time,  and I would bump into quite a few people from the entertainment industry - actors,  musicians etc.  One day I actually got talking to Paul Young,  he was very likable.  Anyway, here's a song by him:

EVERY TIME YOU GO AWAY . PAUL YOUNG

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:

Come Rain or Shine- Al Jarreau


Enjoy,

Rattler

THINK about it again, (lyrics excerpts):

Quote
.snip-
Happy together, unhappy together
And won't it be fine.
Days may be cloudy or sunny,
We're in or we're out of the money,
-snip-

 

The way life *not* goes... :

Alternative, inciting a strong urge to puke: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/27808110/

BTW, this is not a new song, theme it is as old as mankind´s history: Women - AFAIK and from what I see around me -  
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)

Come Rain or Come Shine - B.B King / Eric Clapton


Rattler (this kingdoms´s Minister of Love, currently on administrative leave due to general distrust towards female´s motives  whistle)

No special reason for this one (apart from that it is the first concert of La Mari - Chambao - after her 2 yrs chemo), I simply like it and am listening to it currently (the whole concert):

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


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 Smiley )...

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

What a beautiful song and arrangement!
