Well, I definitely Identify with those two songs, though by and large im not a big radiohead fan.

It's all about the lyrics, SiStEr!

I've been feeling weird lately....bad....more like myself than I have in a while.

And now, for something completely different!


Yeah, I know, I've posted it before.

But I guess there will always be a part of me who still hopes for an innocent man!


Some people stay far away from the door
If there's a chance of it opening up
They hear a voice in the hall outside
And hope that it just passes by

Some people live with the fear of a touch
And the anger of having been a fool
They will not listen to anyone
So nobody tells them a lie

I know you're only protecting yourself
I know you're thinking of somebody else
Someone who hurt you
But I'm not above
Making up for the love
You've been denying you could ever feel
I'm not above doing anything
To restore your faith if I can

Some people see through the eyes of the old
Before they ever get a look at the young
I'm only willing to hear you cry
Because I am an innocent man

I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am

Some people say they will never believe
Another promise they hear in the dark
Because they only remember too well
They heard somebody tell them before

Some people sleep all alone every night
Instead of taking a lover to bed
Some people find that it's easier to hate
Than to hurt anymore

I know you don't want to hear what I say
I know you're gonna keep turning away
But I've been there
And if I can survive, I can keep you alive
I'm not above going through it again
I've not above being cool for a while
If you're cruel to me I'll understand

Some people run from a possible fight
Some people figure they can never win
And although this is a fight I can lose
The accused is an innocent man

I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man

You know you only hurt yourself out of spite
I guess you'd rather be a martyr tonight
That's your decision
But I'm not below
Anybody I know
If there's a chance of resurrecting a love
I'm not above going back to the start
To find out where the heartache began

Some people hope for a miracle cure
Some people just accept the world as it is

But I'm not willing to lay down and die
Because I am an innocent man

I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man




A girl can dream, can't she?

I periodically write an album review, and here is a short and sweet one which I'd like to share with the board.

Read it.

Enjoy it.

Be moved to buy the album.

Finally, feel indebted to me for the rest of your days.

I'll accept nothing less.

Artist: Deep Forest
Album: Comparsa (1997) *****

French musicians, Eric Mouquet and Michael Sanchez, comprise Deep Forest.

Their first and self-titled album that was released in 1992 included a scattering of African chants throughout and showed signs of where the duo really wanted to go with their sound, although the album still comes across a little too dance-driven by 'Comparsa''s standards. Nevertheless, it was commercially recognized and was nominated for the Best World Music Album at the '93 Grammy Awards, even though the album doesn't come close to capturing what 'Comparsa' would. The soothing "Sweet Lullaby" was, admittedly, the best track on that first release, which featured Baka Pygmy chants. (For those fond of pygmy vocals, I recommend branching out and giving Zap Mama a listen to).

Then came 1995's 'Boheme,' which was a step up in the right direction, as far as ethnic electronica is concerned, the duo's sound becoming less audience-conscious and more arboreal, and this time with a different set of chants, that of Hungarian and Gypsy, leaving behind the African chants of their debut album.

With 1998's 'Comparsa,' Deep Forest's third release, the group hit their peak, and the album is the capstone, or canopy, in the group's discography. It is so vintage "deep forest," so bosky, you can almost envision the sight of bush rope.

This time around the group went with Spanish chants and sounds. There is not one blemish on the entire album. The opening track, "Noonday Sun," kicks off the album on a high note, an uptempo, festive, felicitating, 'wahoo!' collective romp, that makes you want to prance about (it is right up there with the title track, jig 6, for being downright jovial and fun). "Noonday Sun" is perhaps Deep Forest's most exhilarating and animated song ever made, and so full of cheer. It also encompasses the spirit of the entire convivial mood of the album. (Exactly what we need more of, in a musical world mostly composed of dirges, wailing and lamenting.)

Apparently, the duo didn't notice a good thing when they had one, for after 'Comparsa,' the group did an inexplicable about-face, and abandoned their trademark-sounding boondocks for a more discotheque sound, with their 2002 release, 'Music Detected,' a letdown album that is accosting, aggressively beat-oriented, and utterly indistinct (it doesn't sound like Deep Forest at all). The group went way off track with 'Music Detected,' leaving their roots, what had made them so unique, for what is nothing more than an inessential descent in the Deep Forest canon. Whereas, the group's first three albums are quite the contrary – their sound here is original, transporting, and dateless.

My three favorite tracks on 'Comparsa' are the hymn-like "Green And Blue," the hum-inducing "Deep Weather," and the final recording, "Media Luna," a sultry and hypnotizing male-female duet passionately and seductively sung by Syrian and Spanish singers Abed Azrei and Ana Torroja; by the tone, at least, a mutual confession of one another's love for each other. By the end of the song it's as if the man and woman reach vocalized communion.

"Forest Power" is good also, a jumping tribal chant that takes place out among a glade and that is for flexible limbs only – another one of those saltatory tracks on the album.

Both members later went their separate ways, Mouquet creating the group Dao Dezi, and Sanchez producing two solo albums, 'Windows' and 'Hieroglyphs,' the one on 'Comparsa''s album cover, branded on the butterfly wing, being a peace symbol.

'Comparsa' is Deep Forest at its best. The album was their highest achievement. It's just too bad Mouquet and Sanchez didn't evolve on this sound instead of discarding it altogether.

OK, you've gotta listen to mine, too!!!




Boy, you are gonna keep me busy! Guess this is a case of "be careful what you ask for"!!!



Just a quick comment on one of the artists in the "tear-rolling" songs...

Antony and The Johnsons.......

Someone here introduced me to him a while back....the song, "Hope There's Someone".

He is so incredibly unique, and gets me deep in the heart.

Whoah I had not laughed like this for a while... Thank you!

Well, I discovered music 10 years ago and followed my heart.. It brought me to these tunes, and other artistic activities!

I am glad that you like this music, because many people do not let their heart go on with what they are listening to. They just follow what is on the radio..AND IT SADLY NOT A MATTER OF AGE!!

I am discovering classical music, which sounds to me like 'flying music'; there is something really ALIEN in classical music..

By the way, the Jeff Beck Group sounds really PERFECT to me.. This piano at the end...whoah I have chills!

Please post more..

The beginning at the guitar...CRAZY

I tought the singer was nothing and that the guitarist would do anything (like in Moby, this african singer that lighten up the songs)

But then... Deep Purple's 'I'VE BEEN MISTREAAAAAATED'

WHoah.

Oh, and flux.....LOVED the Deep Purple vid!!! I almost posted a Deep Purple song! And, I almost posted a Grand Funk song called "Mean Mistreater"!!!!





Here is a tasty and weird number for everyone!



Three of a Perfect Pair

She is susceptible
He is impossible
They have their cross to share
Three of a perfect pair...
He has his contradicting views
She has her cyclothymic moods
They make a study in despair
Three of a perfect pair...

One
One too many
Schizophrenic tendencies
Keeps it complicated
Keeps it aggravated
And full of this hopelessness
What a perfect mess...

Did you like "Sufficiently Breathless" that I posted above?

Well, I wanted to tell you the following:
I liked it but it was 'slow' and I preferred the 'Three of a perfect Pair'... I am really attached to the NOTES, the MELODY...

as I decided to look at its lyrics..

Watching multiples of people pass me by
Look through the windows, through the houses
Hey Mr. Policeman, can you point the way
Oh, with your hand gun
Heed and the puppy and the space below
Don't you understand 'em
Hearing and watching all the city sounds
On the street where we live


Just before reading your post I painted a canvas. at the end, I had a stop at my window (second floor) to have a look at my street... I like it... I live in the Geneva side where the crime rate is quite high... Always much noise!

There were 3 policemen arresting a 20 years old drug dealer, quite beating him.

Your song touched me it was really accurate!

We all made of sky...

Somebody tell me
What's going wrong
I aint seen my baby
In far too long
Somebody please tell me
What's going wrong
They say them ladies broke
And my baby's gone
Listen
It's been a couple of days
And real dark nights
I miss my only child
I aint seen her since that night
She left home about eight
And never to return....

I LOVED the video you posted, allen! Loved her! I've discovered another new favorite! Thank you!

All those hours my dad made me sit in front of the "record player", and then the console stereo, listening to Big Bands, and hours of other family members exposing me to so many different kinds of music, were not wasted hours!

Native and Victoria,

Thank you for posting the Chet Atkins
songs...what a talent...I introduced
his music to my Son when he was young
and I think that was what inspired his
love of guitar playing and collecting.

Thanks Inquest! That song is one of my all-time favorites!

Israel Kamakawiwo called a friend late at night and asked to be taken to the recording studio. He sat down and in one take, he sang and recorded this beautiful piece, then went home. Not long afterward, he died. What inspired him to blend the two songs the way he did, we'll never know, but certainly he was gifted with a profound sense of beauty and the impulse to follow it!

Blessings, ~ Victoria

Armageddon was a super group made up of members Keith Relf (Yardbirds, Renaissance) a couple of guys from a British band called Steamhammer, and Bobby Caldwell, the best drummer I've ever seen or heard (Captain Beyond - saw two shows in Houston, Johnny Winter And). Most of the Armaggedon album really rocks.

This song was being discussed in the witness thread and it took me awhile to find it. I know it seems to be written about a lost love. Then again, it is inspiring and uplifting and offers hope to whatever you would like to apply it to.

I KNOW YOU"RE OUT THERE SOMEWHERE

I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere, somewhere
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you.
The mist is lifting slowly,
I can see the way ahead
And I've left behind the empty streets
That once inspired my life
And the strength of the emotion
Is like thunder in the air
'Cos the promise that we made each other
Haunts me to the end.

I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere you can hear my voice.
I know I'll find you somehow,
Somehow, somehow.
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you.

The secret of your beauty
And the mystery of your soul
I've been searching for in everyone I meet
And the times I've been mistaken
It's impossible to say
And the grass is growing
Underneath our feet.

I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere you can hear my voice.
I know I'll find you somehow,
Somehow, somehow.
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you.

The words that I remember
From my childhood still are true
That there's none so blind
As those who will not see
And to those who lack the courage
And say it's dangerous to try
Well they just don't know
That love eternal will not be denied.

I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere you can hear my voice.
I know I'll find you somehow,
Somehow, somehow.
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you.

Yes, I know it's going to happen,
I can feel you getting near
And soon we'll be returning
To the fountain of our youth
And, if you wake up wondering
In the darkness, I'll be there.
My arms will close around you
And protect you with the truth.

I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere you can hear my voice.
I know I'll find you somehow,
Somehow, somehow.
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you.

I just noticed this headline and thought that since Krystal Gale Potter began this thread with lyrics from Elliott Smith, the article should be mentioned here, too: Elliott Smith Reissues Cause Outrage Among Loyal Fans.

Here's what the article has to say:

Kill Rock Stars will reissue Elliott Smith's 'Roman Candle' and 'From a Basement on the Hill' on April 6, adding two more of Smith's albums to its catalog. However, the releases are causing consternation among some fans of the late Smith, who died in 2003 at age 34 from a stab wound to his chest.

The highly influential singer-songwriter's old studio cohort, Larry Crane -- who is also the archivist for Smith's estate -- has remastered 'Roman Candle,' which was originally self-recorded by Smith and released on Portland's Cavity Search Records in 1994.

"I'm getting pretty much bashed around there on message boards for something nobody's heard," Crane tells Spinner. "Some people are like, 'Oh my god, how can you do that?' I'm not smashing it and flat-lining it like a Metallica record."

Still, Crane knew from the beginning of this project that he was reworking a sacred recording. "My first thought was, 'Am I doing the right thing?'" Crane says. "I said to my girlfriend, 'My god, should I be doing this?' She said, 'Are you making it sound better?' I said, 'I guess.' She said, 'How can that be wrong?'"

Actually, remastering isn't an accurate description of what Crane has done. Unlike 'From a Basement on the Hill,' which was mastered before its posthumous release in 2004 and is reissued as-is, 'Roman Candle' was never mastered in the first place.

"I really felt that the album, some of the guitar squeaks when he was changing chords -- he used really cheap mics on the record -- some sounds are really jarring," Crane says. "I was very timid at first, but the more I listened and altered the volume on those squeaks a tiny bit; you can still hear them -- they kind of punctuate the phrases and such -- but all of a sudden the guitar playing just became more clear. I know it's going to sound different to some people, but I cannot imagine that they'd have a problem with what we've done."

If I could only be
The queen of popularity
Things would just come to me
So easily
What I would do
What I would do

If I could always be
Miss Congeniality
No one could stand to be
Away from me
What I would do
What I could do

I could do anything
If I were you
I would have everything
If I were you

What I would do ...
What I could do ...

I could do anything
If I were you
I would have everything
If I were you

Maharishi..oops, I mean Sexy Sadie!

Sexy Sadie what have you done
You made a fool of everyone
You made a fool of everyone
Sexy Sadie ooh what have you done.

Sexy Sadie you broke the rules
You layed it down for all to see
You layed it down for all to see
Sexy Sadie oooh you broke the rules.

One sunny day the world was waiting for a lover
She came along to turn on everyone
Sexy Sadie the greatest of them all.

Sexy Sadie how did you know
The world was waiting just for you
The world was waiting just for you
Sexy Sadie oooh how did you know.

Sexy Sadie you'll get yours yet
However big you think you are
However big you think you are
Sexy Sadie oooh you'll get yours yet.

We gave her everything we owned just to sit at her table
Just a smile would lighten everything
Sexy Sadie she's the latest and the greatest of them all.

She made a fool of everyone
Sexy Sadie.

However big you think you are
Sexy Sadie.

One of my favorite musicians within Electronica is the subdued Patrick O'Hearn. As his profile mentions, O'Hearn is both a bassist and a synthesist, and one-time member of a band called Missing Persons. He left the group to pursue a solo career, and, since his 1985 debut album “Ancient Dreams,” the self-effacing soloist has released at least six exceptional CDs (on top of his Best Of records). O'Hearn was a pleasant find when I discovered his passive sound a few years ago, requesting to listen to a CD of his inside a used-record shop. His alternately mellow and semi-moody electronic compositions have been around over 20 years and yet I had never heard of him, proving once again that there's a vast world of extraordinary music out there beyond the AM and FM dial. One simply has to go about in search of it. O'Hearn's instrumentals are low-key, sometimes dreamy, occasionally brooding. As it is often said, there's music for all occasions, and O'Hearn's CDs are best played amid physical darkness and when feeling laid-back and internal. Put on some sun-glasses while you're at it, and go further inside the artist's shadowy musical world. (For example, “Trust” makes a great bed-time soporific.) Although I enjoy each of his half-dozen or so releases, the following six tracks are my favorites:

“Ancient Dreams”

“Desire”

“Devil's Lake”

“Espana”

“Forever The Optimist”

“Portobello Locks”

Thanks for posting that Mama. I love Loreena and that is my favorite song. It was perfect for May Day, a very special day.

Hello Alen, nice to meet you.

Love Sting too Buddie!
