I'm listening to this cool hiphop compilation from 1999.

What's special about it?

Well, it's from (South) Korea. And in Korean. Pretty wild stuff!

I especially like a song called "Deung Il Yo GaNun Gil". I have positively no idea what it is about, but it sounds pretty good.


Does anyone here understand Korean? wink.gif

I'm watching (and listening) to The Last Waltz right now. I don't think that movie needs any introduction or explanation.

You know, a lot of people hate the Moody Blues for some reason. I really can't fathom why - they're an artsy pop band that writes pleasant melodies. Sometimes they get a bit overambitious and their reach exceeds their grasp, but their best is really great. And this album is their best, I think, if you can get past some of the crappy orchestration in parts.

J.J. Cale's Naturally - a true laid-back roots rock classic. J.J.'s minimalistic approach is clear from the get-go - it's been said that the songs on this album sound like demos. Did I already mention that this album is really laid-back? Because it pretty much embodies the definition of the word. It's never boring, though - the songwriting is top-notch.

I highly recommend this album to anyone who likes roots rock even a little bit. Particular highlights for me include "Call Me the Breeze," "Call the Doctor," "Don't Go to Strangers," "Clyde," "Crazy Mama," "River Runs Deep," and, of course, "After Midnight."

Here's a quick Youtube tour of some stuff I listen to:

"Lies" - The Black Keys : Great bluesy song from a great album.

"We're Going Wrong" - Cream: As played in Paris, back in (probably) 1967. I love how animated (compared to almost any other concert) Eric Clapton is in this performance.

"Empty" - Metric: I've really gotten into this band over the last year and a half or so. They do a lot of fairly up-tempo, high energy songs (they've been referred to as 'dance-rock') with downer lyrics. An interesting group.

"One Step Closer To You" - Michael Franti and Spearhead: Michael Franti likes to mix and match things stylistically. This is one of his mellower numbers, more easy-going pop than raging reggae-hip hop-pop-rock (which he does a lot of). Popular in among the college crowd in Missoula.

"A Fuller Wine" - Abigail Washburn and the Sparrow Quartet: Two banjos, a cello, a fiddle, great singing.

"Reckoner" - Radiohead: These guys need no introduction.

"Strange Desire" and "The Flame" - The Black Keys: More? Because these guys are great.

And now, lyrics:

Here by the sea and sand
Nothing ever goes as planned,
I just couldn't face going home
It was just a drag on my own.
They finally threw me out
My mother got drunk on stout,
My dad couldn't stand on two feet,
As he lectured about morality.
Now I guess the families complete,
With me hanging round on the street
Or here on the beach.

The girl I love
Is a perfect dresser,
Wears every fashion
Gets it to the tee.
Heavens above,
I got to match her
She knows just how
She wants her man to be
Leave it to me.

My jacket's gonna be cut slim and checked
Maybe a touch of seersucker with an open neck
I ride a G S scooter with my hair cut neat
I wear my wartime coat in the wind and sleet.

I see her dance
Across the ballroom
UV light making starshine
Of her smile.
I am the face,
She has to know me,
I'm dressed up better than anyone
Within a mile.

So how come the other tickets look much better?
Without a penny to spend they dress to the letter.
How come the girls come on oh so cool
Yet when you meet 'em, every one's a fool.

Come sleep on the beach
Keep within my reach
I just want to die with you here.
I'm feeling so high with you here.
I'm wet and I'm cold
But thank God I ain't old
Why didn't I say what I mean?
I should have split home at fifteen
There's a story that the grass is so green,
What did I see?
Where have I been?

Nothing is planned, by the sea and the sand

Going home in the car this afternoon I found a new sort of favourite, The 69 Eyes! They play melancholic Goth music..dark but very suitable today
Here's their website!

This album is truly a religious experience. I put it on whenever I feel the need to get in touch with God. If there's any place in which He can be found, it's in music, and I think George, being a spiritual man himself, understood that better than anyone.

At this very moment (as I type) I'm listening to this: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.p...toryId=15644497

I love the searchable archive of past studio performances on NPR. It's great.

Might try listening to Calexico next.

Got to post some lyrics that are stuck in my mind at the moment.

Brandon Lee by The 69 Eyes:


What would there be?
As the river of sadness turns into sea
Could there be
another thousand stories like you and me?
Wanted a heart, wanted a soul
More than anything else in this world
But we are doomed
Our flesh 'n' wounds
I would never give in

Just like the moon does
We rise'n'shine'n'fall
over you
That I rise'n'shine'n'crawl
Victims aren't we all

What would there be?
Beyond the eyes of Brandon lee
Could there be
a revenging angel left to bleed?
Wanted the truth, wanted the faith
More than anything else in this world
But we are doomed body and soul marooned
I would never give in

Just like the moon does
We rise'n'shine'n'fall
over you
That I rise'n'shine'n'crawl
Victims aren't we all!


Losing You by Sophie Zelmani:

I can tell
By your look
There's
Something
Missing
Something I took

I can tell
By the way you sound
Won't be long
You won't be around

Oh I'm losing you
Oh I'm losing you

Was it my words?
Or my silence
I know it hurts
My kind of violence

Won't you tell?
How I hurt you
Won't be long
You won't be around

Oh I'm losing you
Oh I'm losing you

I just purchased Calexico's new album, Carried to Dust. Here is a performance/interview from the great NPR radio show, "World Cafe". It's some interesting work.
