Title: What's On Your Playlist?
Post by: Mystic1 on May 26, 2010, 01:24 AM
Just as the title suggests, tell me what you're listening to at the moment. What are you into right now? What song, artist, group, or genre do you return to again and again?

As with all things in my life, my taste in music is nothing if not eclectic. My favorite songs run the gamut of genres and styles. From AC/DC to ZZ Top and everything in-between. Rock, pop, jazz, blues, folk, country, soul, R&B, and Classical. But I have to say, if there is one song that sums me up. One song that I get stuck on. One that, in essence, is my theme song; it would have to be Van Morrison's Into The Mystic.

Of course, that isn't to say it's my only 'favorite' but it certainly holds a special place in my heart.

I've shown you mine...Show me yours.  (http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e105/CommentCrazyGirl/Smileys%20Action/Music%20Dance/LoScrigno_dj.gif)

Totally ECLECTIC for me too G. 

I love new country...but NOT a steady diet.  Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift,  Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, and have you heard Leann  Rimes version of "These Arms of Mine" omg sounds like Patsy Cline!   Some older artists too like George Strait...

also... Lady GaGa, Michael Buble, Pink, Josh Groban, Duffy, Daughtry, David Cook, Jack Johnson,
Amos Lee. Marc Antony, Enrique Iglesias, Leona Lewis, Rhianna, Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce, Anders Osborne, and other trendy music.

Love KD Lange's version of "Hallelujah"

Love anything Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, John Fogerty, Joe Cocker, Creed, Lionel Richie, Mary J. Blige

I love zydeco and good blues.  I listen to classical and easy listening music when cleaning or veggin out.  Love flamenco guitar...or any guitar instrumental

I love the old Bee Gees...The Beatles...The groups Alabama, Oak Ridge Boys, The Eagles...

Some metal...

Gotta love ANYTHING "Mo-Town"

And MUCH MUCH MUCH MORE!!!!!!   

Can't wait to hear what everyone likes!  Great Van Morrison song G!

It's kind of a "mood" thing.  Have you heard Susan Boyle's version of Wild Horses?

Elise,

You'll see from the email I sent you why I jumped at the chance to host a music forum. You like classical guitar, huh? Me too. Have you ever heard the Concierto de Aranjuez by Joaquin Rodrigo? I'm sure, if you've heard it once (even if you don't recognize the name) you'll recognize the piece itself. I found this on Youtube, but because of that site's uh, dare I say ignorance? or perhaps a simple disregard for it's patrons; the piece is broken into three sections which actually makes the playing time much longer than the original 21:47. While there may be a bit of an overlap between the second and third movements due to editing, you have the entirety of the piece presented here in the following three videos.

You're quite welcome, Elise. And thank you, Halo, for that informative offering. I dug the name of this out of the record collection in my closet; hoping you might enjoy the piece. I hadn't heard it in years and was overjoyed I found it on Youtube. It's my favorite guitar composition.

Rod Stewart.

My song gave me his collection of band tunes and it is just marvelous. Smokey---smooth--glorious sounds. But I like anything he does, always have. I first heard maggie mae in 1972 when I got off work and was driving home. I'll never forget the day or what I was wearing. That's strange, huh? I just remember turning that sucker up loud and I was an instant fan.

hmmm, well now, Rg, that is quite an offer, indeed. Not to mention a rather precarious position you've put me in, to boot. What to do? What to do? Eanie, Meanie, Miney...No, that won't work. Perhaps we could hold a charity auction with the proceeds going towards The New England Rest Home For Old Poets? No, it should be a fair process. A secret ballot? No, the votes may be too easily swayed in one direction. The only gentlemanly (and equitable) choice left for me is...A date with each, in turn. That way, everyone wins.  *party*

I thought I might propose a bikini mud wrestling contest* - winner take all. But that's just chauvinistic and crude...still and all not a bad idea. No...no...it's not fair to the feminists.


*Allowed for bikinis because Legal said I wouldn't likely get away with nudity in an open forum. Although, Legal also implied that if it were staged as a strictly charitable event at reasonable prices (so long as they got a cut of the gate) they'd let it slide.

Me thinks I've missed the mud wrestling contest. Oh well, such is life.
I just found this G. I'm into old school R&B, blues and old work/slave songs.  I did lose my soul brother card because they found out I like bluegrass. I got outed and lost all my stripes.

So tell me, what's your rules here?
Title: Re: What's On Your Playlist?
Post by: Mystic1 on July 13, 2010, 08:56 PM
All rules are made to be broken...therefore, I have none. Whatever you're into, whatever you're listining to...it's what's on your playlist. I've been listening to a lot of Miles Davis myself lately. Just haven't taken the time to upload anything yet. G.

Those are some great songs, Earl. And thanks for the link too. I think I've found someone you may have never heard of....but I hope you'll enjoy. I have to admit I hadn't heard of him myself until a little over a year ago. But I now own four of his albums. (Thanks Halo, for the introduction) Here's a short biography:

Born: Aug 16, 1951 in New York, NY
Genres: Blues
Styles: Contemporary Blues, Folk-Blues, Modern Acoustic Blues, Modern Electric Blues
Instruments: Vocals, Guitar

Eric Bibb's music is a rich blend of the blues with elements of folk, country, gospel, and soul, thanks in part to his being the son of New York folk singer Leon Bibb, which afforded young Eric exposure to a wide variety of music and opportunities to meet performers like Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan. Bibb launched his career in Europe, performing at blues and folk festivals in London, Cambridge, and Dublin, sometimes with a full band and sometimes with slide guitarist Goran Wennerbrandt; he eventually settled permanently in Sweden, where he works as a music and voice teacher when not performing. Bibb's debut album, Good Stuff, was released in Europe in 1997 and the U.S. a year later; it was followed by Shakin' a Tailfeather in 1998, which featured producer Linda Tillery and a guest appearance by Taj Mahal. Home To Me arrived in 2000 and the enchanting Painting Signs followed the next summer.

Speaking of 'classics', here's one of my all-time favorites. In my opinion, one of (if not) the best jazz compositions written for orchestra. From a rare 1927 recording, Rhapsody In Blue with George Gershwin himself at the piano. Written, in New York, at a time when there was a real Tin Pan Alley. Enjoy.

Lorena McKennitt - The Mystics Dream (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIghrxxhQYs#)

A clouded dream on an earthly night
Hangs upon the crescent moon
A voiceless song in an ageless light
Sings at the coming dawn
Birds in flight are calling there
Where the heart moves the stones
There that my heart is longing for
All for the love of you

A painting hangs on an ivy wall
Nestled in the emerald moss
The eyes declare a truce of trust
Then it draws me far away
Where deep in the desert twilight
Sand melts in pools of the sky
Darkness lays her crimson cloak
Your lamps will call, call me home

And so it's there that my homage's due
Clutch-ed by the still of the night
Now I feel, feel you move
And every breath, breath is full
So it's there my homage's due
Clutch-ed by the still of the night
Even the distance feels so near
All for the love of you

A clouded dream on an earthly night
Hangs upon the crescent moon
A voiceless song in an ageless light
Sings at the coming dawn
Birds in flight are calling there
Where the heart moves the stones
There at my heart is longing for
All for the love of you

I felt so much turmoil and started to let it come out. I started thinking about all the ways I've experienced Love. Not that I was feeling very loved right then, or that I had a love in my life anymore, but it was good to remember. I started remembering Love and certain expressions of Love - and I tried to decribe that. I tried to decribe all of the ways that people think of Love and how Love is really all of those things and these beautiful lines came pouring out of me. ~ John Denver

Of all of John's songs it's probably my favorite. It was written when John and I decided to get a separation and then a divorce. And so, it was a difficult time in his life, my life, the lives of our family members. But John was on the road and he wrote this song. He sent it to me in an overnight letter. That last summer that he lived and he was being inducted into the Song Writer's Hall of Fame, it's the song he sang. ~ Annie Martell

Study Contends Pot Isn't a Major 'Gateway Drug'


Friday Sept. 3(HealthDay News) -- A new report casts doubt on the argument that marijuana is a "gateway drug" that plays a major role in leading people to try other illegal drugs.

Researchers found that other factors, such as ethnicity and stress levels, are more likely to predict whether young adults will use other illegal drugs. Even unemployment appears to be more closely linked to harder illicit drug use than marijuana use, the study authors noted.

The researchers based their findings on surveys of 1,286 young adults who attended Miami-area public schools in the 1990s.

Ethnicity was the best predictor of future illegal drug use, the study findings indicated, with whites the most likely to use the drugs, followed by Hispanics and then blacks.

The study findings are published in the September issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior. So does early use of marijuana play a role in boosting the likelihood of later drug use? It's unclear.

"This study really doesn't answer the question," said Dr. Richard D. Blondell, director of addictions research at the University at Buffalo (UB), who was not involved in the new study. "As the authors point out, there are a lot of factors at play here. There is no one single answer to why somebody develops addiction."

In a study published recently in the Journal of Addiction Medicine, Blondell and colleagues at UB reported that new research suggests that many people first get addicted to drugs while using prescription painkillers.

I think they came along way before the MoTown sound. Heck, they were singing "Poison Ivy" when I was just a kid!

The Tams and the Drifters were classified as beach music, I believe. I know that I shagged (that's a dance, folks) on the pavillion at the beach to the Tams and Drifters most of my life.

Saturday, April 24th, 2010, over 30 members of the Opera Company of Philadelphia Chorus and principal cast members from a then upcoming production of La Traviata converged on the Reading Terminal Market Italian Festival.  Wearing street clothes and blending in with the crowd, the artists swung into action after the first orchestral strains of the famed " Brindisi " were piped through the market, giving a rousing, surprise performance for hundreds of delighted onlookers who were there to enjoy the Italian delicacies and the everyday treats that the Reading Terminal Market has to offer.

John Lennon At 70
October 9, 1940-December 8,1980


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTywHAFZxcU]http://www.kvia.com/news/25331109/detail.html]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTywHAFZxcU (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTywHAFZxcU

[url=http://www.kvia.com/news/25331109/detail.html)

ABC News

John Lennon, the pioneering songwriter and a member of the most-famous pop group of all-time, would have turned 70-years-old on Saturday, and to celebrate, Google UK is running an interactive doodle on its homepage. (Video below.) Alas, American users get nothing more than the regular old Google logo (at least today), but if you're longing for a look at the Lennon doodle, navigate over to Google.co.uk.

Update: The doodle is now on Google.com as well.

The logo initially appears to be a static illustration; click on the play button, however, and a short video - set to the song "Imagine" - will begin to play.

This weekend also marks the release of "Nowhere Boy," a movie about Lennon's adolescence in England. "Nowhere Boy" - which has been praised by no less an eminence than Yoko Ono - has received middling marks from reviewers. "Director Sam Taylor-Wood and screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh are overfond of British kitchen sink/Angry Young Man realism - surely there must have been more larky spiritedness in the young Lennon - and the scenes involving the nascent stirrings of the Beatles are undercut, through no fault of his own, by the actor playing Paul McCartney, Thomas Brodie Sangster, who looks to be around 11 instead of 15," writes Monitor critic Peter Rainer.

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Ono remembered that Lennon dreaded his 40th birthday; she said he would have been more relaxed about turning 70.

But she also said the state of the world today would have made her husband "totally angry.... He would have felt like he wanted to run somewhere and just bang something or strangle someone, you know? But then I think, I'm sure he would have relaxed and decided he should still be an activist. We need to really do something about the world. Otherwise, we're all going to blow up together," Ono said.

Well I was gonna list what at the moment is on my iPod but then I forgot to take it out of my jeans and it's all clean now, especially inside!  :tongue

So Iam gonna post a bit of the songs I listed on Facebook. My sister dear says Iam the one and only DJ on Facebook hahaha. That would be really awesome to do but a little bit difficult to make it happen, taken the type of medium that is. As elise already knows, I just love to DJ and when the opportunity came a few years ago I didn't have to wait long to say yes! And now that I have a stable internetconection I may be able to do it once again, so everybody out there who feels their ears are hurt by a Dutch accent, watch out!  wink*

My taste in music is very broad and diverse and goes from Classical Music to Heavy Metal and almost everything in between. Iam not very big on the technical music(also called boom!boom! music by my dad hahaha) nor the modern R&B or rap music. I love most music from the 70's and almost everything from the 80's, and with a dad playing the "old" country music, classical music and mom playing Neil Diamond and such you know where my roots are, well kinda.

Even though I love a lot of different styles in music it strongly depends on my moods thoughts and feelings and the place Iam at or the things Iam doing. I do think the John Miles song "Music" is very true. "

"Music was my first love, and it will be the last;
  Music of the future and music of the past"

Can't Get It Out Of My Head (John Paul White)

Midnight, on the water
I saw the oceans daughter
Walking on a wave she came
Staring as she called my name.

And I cant get it out of my head
No, I cant get it out of my head
Now my whole world is gone for dead
cos I cant get it out of my head.

Breakdown, on the shoreline
Cant move, its an ebb tide
Morning dont get here tonight
Searching for her silver light.

And I cant get it out of my head
No, I cant get it out of my head
Now my whole world is gone for dead
cos I cant get it out of my head, oh no

Day job, in the city
Robin hood & william tell & ivanhoe & lancelot
They dont envy me
Sitting as the sun goes down
In dreams the world keeps spinning round & around

And I cant get it out of my head

Title: Re: What's On Your Playlist?
Post by: Mystic1 on March 30, 2011, 10:18 PM
This is a rare recording of J.R.R. Tolkien from 1952,
in which he recites the Quenya poem Namri,
famously sung by Galadriel in the chapter
"Farewell to Lrien" in The Lord of the Rings.

J.R.R. Tolkien reciting "Namri" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6de_SbVUVfA#)

Original Elvish:


"Ai! lauri lantar lassi srinen,
yni ntim ve rmar aldaron!
Yni ve lint yuldar avnier
mi oromardi lisse-miruvreva
Andn pella , Vardo tellumar
nu luini yassen tintilar i eleni
maryo airetri -lrinen.

S man i yulma nin enquantuva?

An s Tintall Varda Oiolosso
ve fanyar mryat Elentri ortan,
ar ily tier undulv lumbul;
ar sindanriello caita morni
i falmalinnar imb met, ar hsi
untpa Calaciryo mri oial.
S vanwa n, Rmello vanwa, Valimar!

Namri! Nai hiruvaly Valimar.
Nai ely hiruva. Namri!"

English Translation:

"Ah! like gold fall the leaves in the wind,
long years numberless as the wings of trees!
The long years have passed like swift draughts
of the sweet mead in lofty halls
beyond the West, beneath the blue vaults of Varda
wherein the stars tremble
in the voice of her song, holy and queenly.

Who now shall refill the cup for me?

For now the Kindler, Varda, the Queen of the stars,
from Mount Everwhite has uplifted her hands like clouds
and all paths are drowned deep in shadow;
and out of a grey country darkness lies
on the foaming waves between us,
and mist covers the jewels of Calacirya for ever.
Now lost, lost to those of the East is Valimar!

Farewell! Maybe thou shalt find Valimar!
Maybe even thou shalt find it! Farewell!"

And even more postings of related Celtic I saw you post....awesome! Having been to Ireland once and a few times to Scotland, it always brings back good memories to the land of Mystic(sic!), grey clouds,
green hills, sheep, loads of sheep and of course the like of a good wee dram of whisky, my sister and I have developed now *lick*

That's funny I have been (re re)rereading The Hobbit as well for exactly the same reason and the fact that Mr. Jackson is going to do the directing once again has got me a big sigh of relief! Iam very looking forward and confident that it will be just such an AWESOME movie as The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

My dad is not much of a movie goer but...he sees the LOTR movies as best movies he knows and he has the extended boxed set of the 3 movies and a large amount of J R R Tolkiens books. Even as a child I was enchanted by the magical world he created, not only a magical world full of amazing creatures, but also the invention of complete languages, histories, bloodlines, geography, topography and so on. I was 11 when I first opened a book and decided to try it in English, that was a little bit too much of a good thing hahaha...took me a few years more to get it done and enjoying it. Got me a real good grade at school too when everybody was picking thin, easy to read English novels and I put a 1356 page book on my list  :tongue

Thanks, Dutch for this vid...(a perfect choice for Fellowship I ADORE Enya..she's one of my all-time favorites. I always aspired to be a writer such as Tolkien, but I just don't think I have it in me. The man was a genius and a workaholic. How he ever found time to have a wife and children, I'll never know. Though, I suspect, if he had never had children, we wouldn't be blessed with his works of High Fantasy. But, you're right, he was not only an author of great novels, but a linguist, an illustrator, painter, poet, professor of linguistics, (he was on the board of several prestigious colleges and even worked on the Oxford English Dictionary for two years...all the while writing books like The Hobbit and LOTR) I'm with you. I breathed a sigh of great relief when i read that Peter Jackson had retaken the reins to direct upcoming installment of The Hobbit. (Can't picture anyone else fulfilling that role.)

Loreena McKennitt- The Mystic's Dream (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt2r2rUHc7Q#)

A clouded dream on an earthly night
Hangs upon the crescent moon
A voiceless song in an ageles light
Sings at the coming dawn
Birds in flight are calling there
Where the heart moves the stones
It's ther that my heart is longing
All for the love of you

A painting hangs on an ivy wall
Nestled in the emerald moss
The eyes declare a truce of trust
And then it draws me far away
Where deep in the desert twilight
Sand melts in pools of the sky
When darkness lays her crimson cloak
Your lamps will call me home

And so it's there my homage's due
Clutched by the still of the night
And now I feel you move
Every breath is full
So it's there my homage's due
Clutched by the still of the night
Even the distance feels so near
All for the love of you.

Spaniels - Baby, It's You (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuNDpLkiKtk#)

Regarded as one of the best doo-wop groups of the 1950s, the Spaniels were one of the first groups signed to the African American-owned Vee-Jay label in 1953, when its members were just out of high school. Like many other black performers of the era, their greatest success, the 1954 single Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight, could have been an even bigger pop hit if not for a cover version by the McGuire Sisters, who turned it into a top-ten hit. The first leg of the Spaniels recording career lasted until 1960, when the groups poor chart performances led its members to disband and pursue solo careers. Re-formed in 1969 under the leadership of original member James Pookie Hudson, the Spaniels found receptive audiences on the oldies concert circuit and brought their music to a new generation of doo-wop fans. As the group approached the fiftieth anniversary of its founding, the Spaniels were still making concert appearances with their hits Baby, Its You (Released in July 1953 reaching #10 on Billboard's R&B chart September 5, 1953)  Everyones Laughing, and the now-classic Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight.

The Spaniels were a group first formed by five friends at Roosevelt High School in Gary, Indiana, during the early 1950s. Hudson, a cousin of jazz pianist Fats Waller, had been singing in church choirs and other neighborhood groups when he was approached by Ernest Warren, Opal Courtney, Jr., Willie Jackson, and Gerald Gregory to form a new vocal group. With Hudson as the lead singer, the group made one of its first public appearances as Pookie Hudson and the Hud-sonaires at Roosevelt Highs Christmas talent show in 1952. The following year the group took a new name, the Spaniels, after Gregory's wife allegedly said that the quintet sounded like a pack of dogs.

As the Spaniels, the group auditioned for Vivian Carter Bracken and her husband, James Bracken, who worked for Chicago radio station WWCA and owned a local record shop, Vivian's Records. Vivian Bracken was also a disc jockey on Gary's WGRY radio station. The Brackens had just launched their own label, Vee-Jay Records, and were searching for local talent. With an act that was far more polished than most groups just out of high school, the Spaniels impressed the Brackens enough to earn a record contract. Various sources cite either the Spaniels or blues guitarist Jimmy Reed as the first artist signed to Vee-Jay Records.

God Must Be Busy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_hqCt8wVck#)

When they see among them their children, the work of My hands, they will keep My name holy; they will acknowledge the holiness of the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel. ~ Isaiah 29:23

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. ~ Psalm 46

My two biggest influences as a singer/songwriter as well as a poet have always been Duncan Sheik and Darren Hayes. I have followed Duncan since his big debut in 1996 with "Barely Breathing" and I own practically every song he has ever had. I have some growing concerns about him and his music as he is delving into remixing old songs from the 1980s instead of focusing on his own music, but that's just me. Darren has always fascinated me from a performance standpoint as well as just raw singing ability. I eagerly await his October 17th album "Secret Codes and Battleships" which is his return to the limelight after a 4 year hiatus. This album, what I know of it, will be a lot like his earlier Savage Garden albums, though of course, having its own distinct flavor. "Talk Talk Talk", "Black Out The Sun" and " Bloodstained Heart" are all phenomenal work I listen to whenever I write.

I'm also getting into artists I found on Youtube like Alex Goot, Tyler Ward, and Boyce Avenue.

WHITNEY HOUSTON FOUND DEAD AT 48

Whitney Houston, who rose to stardom in the 1980s as bright as her clear, soaring voice, has died her publicist said. She was 48.

Publicist Kristen Foster said Houston had died, but said the cause and the location of her death were unknown.

Houston was among the biggest stars of pop music in the 1980s and early 1990s, and her crossover into film in “The Bodyguard” and “Waiting to Exhale” put her on top of the entertainment world. But a long struggle with drugs put her career in eclipse for a decade.

She attempted a comeback in 2009,  but she was unable to quiet the rumors that she was using drugs again.

Houston first admitted to using drugs in a two-part interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2009.

She called her ex-husband Bobby Brown “her drug,” saying that she “didn’t do anything without him.”

She also said marijuana laced with cocaine was their substance of choice, and they “would have ounces” of cocaine available at all times.

“You put [cocaine] in your marijuana, you lace it, you smoke it,” she told Winfrey.

Houston talked about the drama and abuse that defined her relationship with Brown.

“He spit on me,” she told Winfrey. “He spit on me. He actually spit on me. And my daughter was coming down the stairs and she saw that.”

Houston’s response: “I took the phone and I hit him over the head with it,” she said.

Her appearance on “Oprah” was her first major television interview since 2002, when she talked to ABC’s Diane Sawyer.

Sawyer asked Houston at the time about ongoing drug rumors that had started in 2000, when airport security guards found marijuana in Houston and Brown’s bags at a Hawaiian airport. The singer alluded to having used cocaine, pills and marijuana — but drew the line at crack in what turned into an infamous rant.

“First of all, let’s get one thing straight,” she told Sawyer. “Crack is cheap. I make too much money to ever smoke crack. Let’s get that straight. Okay? We don’t do crack. We don’t do that. Crack is wack.”

In August 2009, Houston released “I Look to You,” her first studio album in seven years. Talking about why she took a break from the music industry, Houston told Winfrey, “It was too much. So much to try to live up to, to try to be, and I wanted out.”

“I Look to You” sold 304,000 copies in its first seven days on the market, sending Houston back to the top of the charts and giving her the best debut week of her career.

In 2010, Houston launched her “Nothing but Love” world tour. Though some said Houston’s signature voice showed the stress of her ups and downs, she soldiered on, putting on shows in Asia, Australia and Europe even though fans and critics panned her performances.

Lucille Bogan was one of the earliest American blues singers to be recorded, and is remembered for her very risqué lyrics.  She sang straight-talking blues about drinking ("Sloppy Drunk Blues"), prostitution ("Tricks Ain't Walking No More"), lesbianism ("B.D. Woman's Blues"), gambling, and other facets of what her generation called "the life."  She also recorded under the pseudonym Bessie Jackson.

Walter Roland&Lucile Bogan - Down In Boogie Alley (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TUvxwJyBLQ#)

Born Lucille Anderson in Amory, Mississippi, in Monroe County, on April 1, 1897, she was raised in Birmingham, Alabama, where she married Nazareth Lee Bogan, a railwayman, and gave birth to a son, also called Nazareth Lee, in 1916.  She had also gained a stepdaughter through her marriage.

Bogan was the aunt of pianist and trumpet-player Thomas "Big Music" Anderson, and is considered to have had one of the finest voices of any female blues singer.  Her early work was influenced by vaudeville stylists, but with age and experience her voice deepened and her expression matured.  Jazz critic and sexologist Ernest Borneman grouped her with Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith in "the big three of the blues."

Lucille Bogan's first recordings were vaudeville songs made in 1923 in New York City for OKeh Records, where she was accompanied by pianist Henry C. Callens.  Later that year she recorded "Pawn Shop Blues," backed by Eddie Heywood on piano, in Atlanta, Georgia, which was the first time a black blues singer had been recorded outside New York or Chicago.

In 1927 Bogan began recording for Paramount Records in Chicago, where she waxed her first big success, "Sweet Petunia," which was later adapted by Vance Dixon with Alex Channey, Blind Blake, Curley Weaver, and others in support.

Lucille Bogan had a very colorful love life, with both men and women.  She was rumored to have had an affair with pianist Will Ezell, who had accompanied her for Paramount in a session that also featured Papa Charlie Jackson, resulting in divorce proceedings that were initiated, but never finalized, by her husband.

In 1928 Bogan recorded for Brunswick Records, backed by Tampa Red and Cow Cow Davenport.  Further influential recordings followed, including "Sloppy Drunk Blues" and "Alley Boogie."  Her songs were covered extensively by blues artists such as Bumble Bee Slim, Leroy Carr, Jimmy Rogers and Sonny Boy Williamson.
By 1930 Lucille Bogan's recordings had begun to concentrate on drinking and sex, with songs such as "Sloppy Drunk Blues" (covered by Leroy Carr and others) and "Tricks Ain't Walkin' No More" (later recorded by Memphis Minnie).  She also recorded the original version of "Black Angel Blues," which, as "Sweet Little Angel," was covered by Earl Hooker, B.B. King, Robert Nighthawk, Pinetop Perkins, Tampa Red, and many others, and was reworked as the more subtle "Love 'n' Things" by Lowell Fulson.

Trained in the rowdier juke joints of the 1920s, many of Bogan's songs, most of which she wrote herself, have thinly-veiled humorous sexual references with outspoken lyrics that dealt with sexuality in a manner that raised eyebrows.  The theme of prostitution, in particular, features prominently in several of her recordings.

Between 1933 and 1935, Lucille Bogan teamed up with pianist Walter Roland, adopting the name Bessie Jackson.  The duo recorded more than 100 songs for the American Record Company (ARC), including "Seaboard Blues," "Troubled Mind," "Superstitious Blues" and her infamous recording of "Shave 'Em Dry" with its explicit sexual lyrics.  Walter Roland subsequently released a less successful response song, "I'm Gonna Shave You."

Bogan's other songs include "Stew Meat Blues," "Coffee Grindin' Blues," "My Georgia Grind," "Honeycomb Man," "Mr. Screw Worm In Trouble" and "Bo Hog Blues."  Her final recordings with Roland and Josh White included two takes of "Shave 'Em Dry," recorded in New York on Tuesday, March 5, 1935.  The unexpurgated alternate take is notorious for its explicit sexual references, a unique record of the lyrics sung in after-hours adult clubs.
Another of Lucille Bogan's songs, "B.D. Woman's Blues," takes the position of a bull dyke ('B.D.'), with the line "Comin' a time, B.D. women, they ain't gonna need no men."  The music and melody of Bogan's "B.D. Woman Blues" are similar to the traditional women's blues song "I Know You Rider," although the lyrics are completely different.

Bogan's final composition, "Gonna Leave Town," was covered by Smokey Hogg in 1949.

In 1935 Lucille Bogan moved back to Alabama, still with husband Nazareth, where she managed her son’s jazz band, Bogan’s Birmingham Busters.  Her marriage finally broke up in 1941 and she eventually followed her son to Los Angeles, California with her then common-law husband.  She died from coronary sclerosis on August 10, 1948, aged 51.  She was buried in a grave without a headstone at the Lincoln Memorial Park, Compton, Los Angeles County, California.

"Cecilia" was first recorded by Simon and Garfunkel for their 1970 album Bridge Over Troubled Water. When released as a single, it reached #4 in the US charts. The "Cecilia" of the title is generally interpreted as being a capricious lover, causing both anguish and jubilation to the singer. However, another interpretation is that Cecilia might refer to St. Cecilia, patron saint of music in the Catholic tradition, and thus the song might refer to the frustration of fleeting inspiration in songwriting. The Song's foundation was a percussion track recorded in the house Paul was renting on Blue Jay Way in Los Angeles. Paul and Art slapped their thighs, Eddie Simon thumped a piano bench and a friend strummed a guitar with its strings slackened to the point of atonality. Roy Halee did the rest.

No. No. No.
Mess around with a hungry bear,
Grab a tiger by its hair,
but baby, don’t fuck around with love

Never stir deep emotions, ‘less you enjoy big explosions
When you say the words I love you, just be sure each word is true
but baby, don’t fuck around with love
No. No. No.

Take a little advice from me. Play around with TNT

 *dance* :dblu

Wiggle

Tejas Brothers

wiggle in the mornin,’ wiggle in the evenin’
wiggle ‘til the break of dawn
wiggle to the left, wiggle to the right
wiggle ‘til the wiggle’s all gone

I remember the first day that I found her
I put my arms around her, she tried to wiggle, wiggle away
I took her by the hand and asked to be her man,
This is what she had to say:

You know I love to wiggle
could you meet me in the middle
and learn to wiggle with me someday?

When she said, There’s nothin’ to it.
Then I told her I would do it
and she promised not to wiggle away.
And that’s why we,

wiggle in the mornin,’ wiggle in the evenin’
wiggle ‘til the break of dawn
wiggle to the left, wiggle to the right
wiggle ‘til the wiggle’s all gone

My the years have gone by and it kinda makes me cry
we’ve got a little girl of our own
such a pretty child, it always makes me smile
brightens every day in our home

-Just wiggle-

Couldn’t get better, we got a little letter
and everything changed that day
My wife started cryin’, I felt like I was dyin’
This is what the letter did say:

We hate to inform you,
but we thought we ought to warn you
‘bout a situation here at school
it appears that your daughter
might be failin’ ‘cause we caught her
wigglin’ and singin’ this tune

-Is that the Tejas Brothers?-

That’s why there’s no more

wiggle in the mornin,’ wiggle in the evenin’
wiggle ‘til the break of dawn
wiggle to the left, wiggle to the right
wiggle ‘til the wiggle’s all gone

-Alright now, everybody sing along-

wiggle in the mornin,’ wiggle in the evenin’
wiggle ‘til the break of dawn
wiggle to the left, wiggle to the right
wiggle ‘til the wiggle’s all gone

-Bring it back now-

wiggle in the mornin,’ wiggle in the evenin’
wiggle ‘til the break of dawn
wiggle to the left, wiggle to the right
wiggle ‘til the wiggle’s all gone

Well the pioneer of the GO-GO era passed away recently. Many a soul partied to his music. Clubs, movies, radio shows, TV shows were geared to feature GO-GO dancers and music.

Robin Gibb
December 22, 1949 - May 20, 2012


Celine Dion & Bee Gees - Immortality (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUuliMnJ9dg#)

The three Gibb brothers were very close as children and spent most of their time together. Barry Gibb, born 1946, and his twin brothers Maurice and Robin, who were born in 1949,went on to become one of the most popular bands in the 1970s. All three siblings were born on the Isle of Man but moved to their father Hugh's home town - Chorlton-cum-Hardy in Manchester - to attend school.

They attended Oswald Road Primary School where they began to sing in harmony in the early 1950s. It is believed that, as with other children their age, they had to lip sync to a record at their local theatre but the record broke. The boys had to sing live and received such a positive response that they decided to pursue a music career. In 1958, the family moved to Australia, along with their youngest brother Andy, born March fifth that same year. Once there, they began performing regularly and were soon performing on radio with two friends, Bill Goode and Bill Gates.

The group had a new name for themselves, The B.G.s – made up from the common initials of Barry Gibb, Bill Goode, Bill Gates. A few years later, the name evolved into The Bee Gees, which came to mean the Brothers Gibb. Recognition was slow in coming, and the Bee Gees decided to move to England to try their luck there. With Robert Stigwood as their manager, the Bee Gees had their first international hit in 1967 with New York Mining Disaster. With two new band members, Colin Peterson (drums) and Vince Melouney (guitar), the Bee Gees first album Bee Gees 1st was a success. Within just over a year, the Bee Gees had clocked up twenty-four number one hits in fifteen different countries.

Their fourth album Horizontal was released in 1968 and became a huge hit spawning the international hit singles Massachusetts and World. This was followed by Idea later the same year, which included the single I've Gotta Get A Message To You. By 1969 though, cracks were beginning to show, as the group was racked with arguments and tension. Colin Peterson left the band and brought a lawsuit to prevent the name Bee Gees being used in his absence. Briefly they went their separate ways, but reunited to record Two Years On, released in December 1970. While this was well received, they had a series of flops between 1972 and 1975. However, they stayed together as a band and did not split again.

In 1975, with the help of producer Arif Mardin, the Bee Gees moved from a ballad band to an R&B influenced style and released Main Course. They then released Jive Talkin which went to number one. Their album Children of the World went platinum, with three hit singles and, when touring with this album, all proceeds went to children’s charities. The Bee Gees' next project, recording the soundtrack for the film, Saturday Night Fever (1977), was another huge success and resulted in some of their best known songs, including Stayin’ Alive’, How Deep Is Your Love – which Robin requested be played at his funeral - and Night Fever. The album unsurprisingly reached number one on the charts,  but it set a record for remaining there for twenty-four consecutive weeks. By the end of the decade, the Bee Gees had five albums which had all gone platinum. In 1988, tragedy struck the family as Andy Gibb, their youngest brother, died, closely followed by their father.

The Bee Gees continued to release well received singles and albums and, in 1997, received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the American Music Awards, a Legend Award at the World Music Awards and were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Unfortunately, in 2003, Maurice Gibb died at the age of 53, following complications during an operation. Initially, his surviving brothers announced that they intended to carry on the name Bee Gees in his memory. But as time passed they decided to retire the group name, leaving it to represent the three brothers together. The same week Maurice died, Robin's solo album Magnet was released.

Although there was talk of a memorial concert featuring both surviving brothers and invited guests, nothing materialised. Since then, Barry and Robin have continued to work independently and have both released recordings with other artists.

In November 2011, it was revealed that Robin Gibb had been battling liver and colon cancer for some months and had undergone surgery to combat the disease. He was given a ten per cent chance of survival which was announced in early 2012. Robin appeared and performed with The Soldiers for the Coming Home concert on February 13th and this would be his final performance. In April 2012, he contracted pneumonia and fell into a coma. Robin woke up and appeared to be recovering but he passed away in London, May 20th 2012. Leaving Barry as the last surviving Bee Gee.

Legendary Folk Guitarist Dies At Age 89

Doc Watson
March 3, 1923 - May 29, 2012


Doc Watson-Deep River Blues (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VAbrnjdtYw#)

In 1962, Doc Watson and some of his musician neighbors set out from their home in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the journey of a lifetime, to perform at the Ash Grove folk club in Los Angeles.

"I remember the first trip we did," Watson said in a 2008 interview. "We borrowed a little station wagon from the late Clarence Ashley's son and drove to California and back, and I remember thinking, 'Lord, what a big old country this is.' I was a mountaineer, just a country boy. I'd never been nowhere like that before."

Within a few years, Watson seemingly had been everywhere, as his prowess on guitar and his vast store of traditional Southern music made the blind musician an internationally celebrated artist.

Watson, 89, who recorded more than 50 albums and won seven Grammy Awards, died Tuesday at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., according to his representatives at Folklore Productions, a Santa Monica management company. He had undergone colon surgery Thursday.

Although Watson is perhaps most acclaimed for his astonishing technique in both the flat-pick and finger-picking styles, his greatest contribution touched on broader concerns.

"Doc arrived at a point where there was the beginning of an audience for traditional music, but not really an informed group of people," Ash Grove owner Ed Pearl said last week.

"Doc was by far the best traditional artist I ever met at talking openly about his people, and just having a casual conversation with an audience.… He was among the most versatile and un-self-conscious bringers of Southern white culture to the Ash Grove possible, and he did that right from the beginning."

With his natural ease as a storyteller, his heartfelt baritone singing, his repository of material and his facility on guitar, Watson was a rare combination of authenticity and artistry.

His example inspired a generation of musicians to explore obscure musical pockets, as well as to upgrade their instrumental technique toward the remarkably high standards he established. He is one of the prime sources of the hybrid, roots-conscious Americana genre, and a key influence on such noted players as Norman Blake, Tony Rice, Buddy Miller and Dan Crary.

"Doc Watson sort of defined in many ways what Americana has become," Jed Hilly, executive director of the Americana Music Assn., told The Times. "He played different styles of American roots music. He played traditional country, he played what would be traditional folk, he played what was traditional bluegrass, he played gospel. All those elements sort of interwoven, that's what Buddy Miller does today.… Nothing is more definitive than Doc Watson's appreciation for a broad spectrum of music in the Americana world."

Watson received a National Medal of Arts in 1997 and a lifetime achievement award from the Recording Academy in 2004.

Remarkably, Watson was well into his 40s when he embarked on a serious music career.

Arthel Lane Watson was born March 3, 1923, one of nine children in a farming family in Deep Gap, N.C. Blinded by an eye infection before he was 2, he was encouraged by his father to be active on the farm. His father also helped foster his musical leanings.

Arthel received a new harmonica every Christmas; and when he was 11 his father made him a banjo, with the head formed from the skin of the family's recently deceased cat. He got his first guitar at 13 and steeped himself in the music he heard on the Grand Ole Opry radio broadcasts and records by such country pioneers as Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family.

Watson and his brother Linney played on street corners in nearby Boone, and he later played in local country bands, developing a style influenced by Merle Travis, Eddy Arnold and Chet Atkins. He also tuned pianos to help support a new family — in 1947 he married his teenage cousin Rosa Lee Carlton, daughter of noted fiddler Gaither Carlton. Watson's new in-law helped him stockpile his repertoire of traditional songs.

Nicknamed Doc by an announcer at a radio station where his group sometimes played, Watson joined a dance band in 1953, adding his electric guitar to its mix of country, pop, swing and square dance music. He had tried to play fiddle but was dissatisfied with his bowing skill, so he began to play the up-tempo fiddle leads on his Les Paul, a la Nashville session stars Grady Martin and Riley Puckett.

For Watson, the traditional acoustic music remained a private passion, so he was intrigued in the late 1950s when the Kingston Trio and other big-city singers began to find success interpreting the old songs.

But his own breakthrough came by accident. Musician and folklorist Ralph Rinzler traveled to the South to record old-time singer and banjo player Clarence "Tom" Ashley, who recruited some neighbors, including Watson, for the session. Watson had to borrow a friend's Gibson because he didn't own an acoustic guitar.

The recordings stirred up some interest, and Rinzler took the players to New York for a concert at Town Hall that helped coalesce the growing folk audience. Watson also got a booking at Gerde's Folk City in Greenwich Village; and in 1962 Watson, Ashley and company headed west for their first Ash Grove engagement. They also played key folk festivals, including those at Newport, R.I., and UCLA.

Watson eventually followed Rinzler's advice and emerged as a solo performer, though he was soon accompanied regularly by his guitarist son, Merle. For Watson, the career offered an opportunity to pull his weight and support his family, and one of his proudest moments was informing a North Carolina state agency that he no longer needed financial assistance for the blind.

It all came to a temporary halt when Merle was killed in a tractor accident in 1985, but after a hiatus Watson returned to the road. In 1988 he organized MerleFest, an informal folk music gathering in Wilkesboro, N.C., that has grown into one of the country's major folk festivals.

Watson, who recorded for a variety of record labels, disliked touring because it kept him away from his home and family, and he first announced his retirement from the road in 1988. He gradually cut back on his schedule but continued to play occasional concerts.

On "Legacy," a 2002 recording of music and conversation with Watson and musician David Holt, Watson is asked how he'd like to be remembered.

"Just as a good old, down-to-earth boy that didn't think he was perfect and that loved music," he says. "And I'd like to leave quite a few friends behind.... Other than that, I don't want anybody putting me on a pedestal when I leave here. I'm just one of the people."

Besides his wife of nearly 66 years, Watson is survived by his daughter Nancy Ellen, two grandchildren, several great-grandchildren and a brother, David.

Paco de Lucia Concierto de Aranjuez( completo)all 3 movements (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOdwQ8XRLH0#)

Paco de Lucía is inarguably one of the most iconic artists today, and one of the few remaining living legends who represents a musical culture and heritage which – outside of Spain – has remained relatively obscure, and little understood. He is known worldwide as the master of flamenco guitar. Perhaps much of what is not known about him is what makes De Lucía stand out among those rarest geniuses of contemporary music, a distinction he earned early in his illustrious 50 year career, and one which remains as relevant today as it did when he first performed in New York, at the age of 14, accompanying Jose Greco’s highly stylized cabaret flamenco popular in the USA during the early 1960’s. De Lucía would soon return to make his own solo debut at Carnegie Hall in 1970, when he was just 23 years old. That was the beginning of a historic musical trajectory that would span over 1 million record sales, 24 albums, and 1 Grammy Award.
Francisco Sánchez Gómez, a classically untrained guitarist who never learned to read music, was born in 1947 in Algeciras, a port city in the southernmost Spanish province of Cádiz, Andalucia. The progeny of a passionately musical family, De Lucía was an extremely quiet, introverted boy who learned to play guitar by ear, surrounded by the constant music of the deeply rooted gypsy neighborhood where his family lived. His father was a guitarist and composer, and his two brothers – Ramon de Algeciras and Pepe de Lucía– ultimately became esteemed flamenco musicians as adults. Paco (the Spanish nickname for Francisco) de Lucía (literally “of Lucia”, in reference to his Portuguese mother, Lucía Gómez) was extremely close to his brothers, and was greatly influenced by them. He credits both his father, and his elder brother, Ramon, for teaching him the basics of playing guitar, the ideal refuge for the sensitive, shy boy who quickly learned to distinguish the complex rhythmical styles, known as “palos”, and instrumental melodies or “falsetas”, the foundations of flamenco composition. His parents realized that the pure, natural talent of young Paco presented a potential source of income given the economic hardship gripping Spain during the 1950’s Franco regime, and soon he was working to help support his family, performing local shows with his singer brother, Pepe, and guitarist Ramon, when he was only seven years old. Looking back, De Lucía considers it a blessing to have been able to help his family survive by playing an instrument that he had spent countless hours practicing in isolation; little did he realize that he was destined to also revolutionize the entire spectrum of flamenco as it had existed for over 150 years, nor that he would be the greatest innovator that it has ever known, and the one who would bring it to an international mass audience.
Following his development from child prodigy to touring ensemble musician, De Lucía returned to Spain to launch his professional recording career, at first remaining true to the tradition of the classical masters. Drawing from the advice given to him years earlier in New York by one of his idols and the reigning master of flamenco guitar at the time, the great Sabicas, who told him “a true flamenco should not play the music of others, but rather, he should create his own”, De Lucía began distancing himself from the old masters, defining his own personal style and brazenly showcasing his dazzling, impeccable virtuosity on “La Fabulosa Guitarra de Paco de Lucía” in 1967, and 1969’s “Fantasia Flamenca”.
The turning point in his career came in 1968, when De Lucía crossed paths with kindred renaissance man and vanguardist, Camarón de la Isla, a young gypsy singer who also hailed from Cadiz. Camarón - with his powerful, almost savage vocal range and savant sense of harmony - instantly became – and still is to this day – De Lucía’s greatest inspiration. Their attraction was mutual, spontaneous and irrepressible. The musical chemistry and intense creativity between the two was transcendent and prolific. These were the golden years of flamenco for Paco and Camaron, and together they composed and released nine albums between 1969 and 1977, touring extensively throughout Spain and establishing the duo as the superstars of the Nuevo Flamenco generation. They collaborated for the last time in 1991 on “Potro de Rabia y Miel”, widely regarded by aficionados as their masterpiece, shortly before Camaron's untimely death in July 1992.
Fueled by this visionary, artistic partnership, De Lucía’s focus on his solo career intensified, pushing himself – along with the boundaries of flamenco - towards the pursuit of even more unconventional musical evolution and unorthodox fusions.
This yearning for innovation led DeLucia to the formation of the Guitar Trio in 1979, alongside jazz greats John McLaughlin and Larry Coryell, later replaced by Al Di Meola. This experience was as inspiring as it was terrifying for De Lucía, who had to learn to improvise by keeping up with the freestyling virtuosos, live on stage. De Lucía remembers this period vividly, describing it as “being on a speeding train and seeing sign posts whizzing by, and by the time you’ve figured out what the first one says, 20 more have passed you by.” In hindsight, De Lucía credits his tenacity and respect for musical evolution as the driving force which kept him from abandoning this daunting challenge - one he had never before faced - and on December 5, 1980 the first avant-garde style of flamenco jazz was forged, on “Friday Night in San Francisco”.
In 1981 he formed the Paco de Lucía Sextet, the first flamenco concept band of its kind, incorporating instrumentation ranging from electric bass, saxophone and flute, along with the now ubiquitous box-shaped cajón – which De Lucía first discovered during a trip to Peru in the late 70’s, and brought back to Spain, proclaiming it to be the essential percussion instrument with which to accompany flamenco guitar - a radical idea at the time - and one which would change the sound of flamenco forever. The original Sextet – which included his brothers, guitarist Ramon de Algeciras and singer Pepe de Lucía, along with Brazilian master percussionist Rubem Dantas, legendary jazz/flamenco bassist Carles Benavent, and Jorge Pardo on flute/saxophone - was De Lucía’s best, and favorite band. They recorded three groundbreaking albums together: “Zyryab” (1990), and two live albums, “One Summer Night” (1984), and “Live in America” (1993). Those were the first flamenco records that blended acoustic flamenco tinged with jazz improvisations, the culmination of De Lucía’s aesthetic ideals.
“That’s where it all began, we broke the mold,” says De Lucía on the “Making of” DVD which accompanies his upcoming CD release EnVivo: Conciertos España 2010. EnVivo is De Lucía’s 25th recording, and only his fourth live album. “Competing with those records is difficult, but on this record what we’re trying to capture is a new perspective of another time, a new time. The energy created during a live performance can never be created in a studio, that’s where the soul of the music is most likely to appear – live on stage.”
Comprised of live concert recordings during his extensive tour of Spain in 2010, this CD presents a more profound De Lucía – an artist who has reached the peak of his artistic maturity. The new version of the now septet features De Lucía’s handpicked lineup of musicians, some of whom have been touring with him since 2004’s Grammy winning “Cositas Buenas”: Cuban electric latin/jazz bassist, Alain Perez; percussionist Israel Suarez Escobar “Piraña”; virtuoso harmonica/keyboard player Antonio Serrano; the renowned singer “Duquende” ; De Lucía’s nephew Antonio Sanchez on 2nd guitar; vocalist David de Jacoba; and Farruco, the up and coming dancer and descendant of a famous flamenco dynasty.
De Lucía’s greatest challenge now is to surround himself with musicians who inspire him enough to let them be his inspiration. “For a musician to perform live on stage requires giving him 100% freedom to be himself, that’s what I like the most - to have musicians who have good rhythm, sensitivity, if they have a good sense of harmony it’s even better, but above all – I like them to be good people”.
A self-described anarchist, De Lucía goes further: “I go on stage to realize myself, to express the best that I have inside of me – that’s why I recorded these seven concerts – because I’m hoping to surprise myself. I tend to take a long time making records. It’s not just a new idea that I’m looking for, or a new song. It’s the sensation of always looking for the unexpected, and the surprise of finding it – it’s very complicated.” Ultimately, De Lucía says he plays for other flamenco guitarists, “They are the ones who understand what I do.”
Perhaps the best way to capture what “EnVivo” represents to De Lucía is summed up by his acute observation : “On a live record you don’t expect perfection from beginning to end; what you want is for there to be emotion, and light. When you play live there is no trickery, no deception; when you play live, it is who and what you are.”

Poetry by Pablo Neruda -- Leaning into the Afternoons (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWl4_SQ5t7g#)

Leaning in the afternoons
I cast my sad nets
towards your oceanic eyes.
There in the highest blaze
my solitude lengthens
and flames, its arms turning like
a drowning man's.
I send out red signals
across your absent eyes
that move like the sea near a lighthouse.
You keep only darkness
my distant female.
from your regard
sometimes the coast of dread emerges.
Leaning in the afternoons
I cast my sad nets
to that sea that beats on your oceanic eyes.
The birds of night peck at the first stars
that flash like my soul
when I love you.
The night gallops on its shadowy mare
shedding blue tassels over the land.
Leaning in the afternoons
I cast my sad nets
towards your oceanic eyes.

Oh I have a response to this, G...


The pull of his words into my heart
the longing to carry poetry inside myself
lingers past the reading of words
the lilt of music 
through scenes
into the sea of yearning.

Tonight you're mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
Will you love me tomorrow?

Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment's pleasure?
Can I believe the magic of your sighs?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Tonight with words unspoken
And you say that I'm the only one, the only one, yeah
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning star?

I'd like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now, cause I won't ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow?
Will you still love me tomorrow?

Same reason for me and for this song as well, FRIEND. I was only just a teenager and remember my cousin and her boyfriend 'Jungle'  (that's the name everyone knew him by) :tongue listening to these songs
and they became favorites of mine.

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No I won't be afraid, no I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh oh oh stand by me
Oh stand, stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
And the mountains should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry, no no no I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh oh oh stand by me
Oh darlin', stand by me, stand by me, stand by me

And the mountains should crumble to the sea

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only, only light we'll see

So darlin', darlin', stand by me, oh oh oh stand by me
Oh darlin', stand by me, stand by me

Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me, oh oh oh oh stand by me
stand by me, stand by me, stand by me
So darlin', darlin', stand ...

(1956) Carl Perkins - Blue Suede Shoes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wgc07esXlY#ws)

 :dblu

Wanda Jackson – Let’s Have A Party released in 1960 a cover of an Elvis Presley release from 1957 (The two were often on the same bill...and even dated briefly) Known to many as the Queen (or First Lady) of Rockabilly and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as an Early Influence in 2009.

Bobby Darin – Splish Splash 1958 where most of my ‘theme’ came from. (his first single to sell a million copies)

The Chordettes – Lollipop 1958 reached number two on the charts

Buddy Holly – Peggy Sue 1957 On October 15, 1955, Charles Hardin Holley, along with Bob Montgomery and Larry Welborn, opened a show for Elvis Presley in Lubbock, Texas catching the eye of a Nashville talent scout. Following this performance, Decca Records signed him to a contract in February 1956, misspelling his name as Holly.

Richard Wayne Penniman (Little Richard) – Good Golly Miss Molly 1957 Most of Penniman's earlier hits inspired covers by the likes of Pat Boone, Elvis Presley and Bill Haley. During Penniman's show at Baltimore's Royal Theatre in June 1956, a woman threw a pair of her underwear onstage at Penniman, leading other female fans to repeat the action. (Tom Jones says:  Thank You) :P

Carl Perkins Blue Suede Shoes 1956 According to Charlie Daniels, "Carl Perkins' songs personified the rockabilly era, and Carl Perkins' sound personifies the rockabilly sound more so than anybody involved in it, because he never changed.” Perkins' songs were recorded by artists (and friends) as influential as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Johnny Cash, which further cemented his place in the history of popular music. Paul McCartney even claimed that “If there were no Carl Perkins, there would be no Beatles”.

Called "the King of Rockabilly", he was inducted into the Rock and Roll, the Rockabilly, and the Nashville Songwriters Halls of Fame; and was a Grammy Hall of Fame Award recipient.

Buddy Holly - That´ll Be The Day ( DECCA 30434 Original Song 45 Rpm (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIbQ1pQ6UNU#ws)

Among the tracks Buddy Holly recorded for Decca Records was this earlier version of That'll Be The Day, which took its title from a line that John Wayne's character says repeatedly in the 1956 film The Searchers. This initial version of the song is played more slowly and about half an octave higher than the later hit version.
Title: Re: What's On Your Playlist?
Post by: Mystic1 on June 25, 2013, 08:07 AM
Decca released two singles, Blue Days, Black Nights and Modern Don Juan, that failed to make an impression. On January 22, 1957, Decca informed Holly his contract would not be renewed, insisting, however, that he could not record the same songs for anyone else for five years.

Holly then hired Norman Petty as manager, and the band began recording at Petty's studios in Clovis, New Mexico. Petty contacted music publishers and labels, and Brunswick Records, a subsidiary of Decca, signed the Crickets on March 19, 1957. Holly signed as a solo artist with another Decca subsidiary, Coral Records. This put him in the unusual position of having two recording contracts at the same time.

On May 27, 1957, That'll Be The Day was released as a single, credited to the Crickets to try to bypass Decca's claimed legal rights. When the song became a hit, Decca decided not to press its claim. That'll Be the Day topped the Billboard US "Best Sellers in Stores" chart on September 23rd, and was No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in November. The Crickets performed That'll Be the Day and Peggy Sue on The Ed Sullivan Show on December 1st. They also sang Peggy Sue on The Arthur Murray Party on December 29th and were given a polite introduction by Kathryn Murray. The kinescopes of these programs are the only record of their 1957 television appearances.

I watched the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan that night in 1964. They seemed to us a strange lot at first, but they took this country by storm. I might do a segment on Ed Sullivan in black history. He was way out front in recognizing  and introducing new talent. There are a few black artists that got their start on his show.

Great idea, Earl. And now for something (almost) completely different. Today in 1876 at a little spot in Montana known as The Little Big Horn...

LARRY VERNE- "MR. CUSTER" ( W / LYRICS) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0nHWAoIfxo#)

That famous day in history the men of the 7th Cavalry went riding on
And from the rear a voice was heard
A brave young man with a trembling word rang loud and clear
What am I doin' here?

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
Hey, Mr. Custer, please don't make me go
I had a dream last night about the comin' fight
Somebody yelled "Attack!"
And there I stood with a arrow in my back.

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go - Forward Ho! --aaww

Look at them bushes out there
They're moving and there's a injun behind every one
Hey, Mr. Custer-you mind if I be excused the rest of the afternoon?
HEY CHARLIE, DUCK YER HEAD!
Hmm, you're a little bit late on that one, Charlie
ooh, I bet that smarts!

They were sure of victory, the men of the 7th Cavalry, as they rode on

But then from the rear a voice was heard
That same brave voice with the trembling word rang loud and clear
What am I doin' here?

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
Listen, Mr. Custer, please don't make me go
There's a redskin a'waitin' out there, just fixin' to take my hair
A coward I've been called cuz I don't wanna wind up dead or bald

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go - Forward HO! --aaww

I wonder what the injun word for friend is?
Let's see-friend-- kemo sabe, that's it
KEMO SABE!, HEY OUT THERE-KEMO SABE!
Nope, that itn't it
Look at them durned injuns
They're runnin' around like a bunch of wild Indians-heh, heh, heh
Nah, this ain't no time for jokin'

Wade Bowen - "Trouble" - Official Music Video - Director: Evan Kaufmann (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAJo34pPTO0#)

I wouldn’t say I didn’t see her comin’
A light that bright’s hard to miss in a place that dark
She said, Yes, to a drink while her fingers fumbled
with a cross on a chain that was swingin’ above her heart
When the mornin’ sun set the midnight sky on fire
She left me like a thief not knowin’ what she took
I wish trouble always looked that good
I wish trouble always looked that good

I was still a little nervous when I got the courage to call
that bright red number she’d written on the back of my hand
A bottle of wine rode shotgun with a rose
while I was drivin’ ‘cross town thinkin’ ‘bout turnin’ back
Now there’s a porch light burnin’ a hole right through my windshield
There’s a silhouette standin’ at the screen door waitin’ for me
I wish trouble always looked that good
I wish trouble always looked that good

I know a million reasons not to go where I’m headed
Oh but when she smiles I can’t even think of one
I wish trouble always looked that good
I wish trouble always looked that good
