According to Goo Goo Dolls lead singer Johnny Rzeznik, this song is about a long-ago love, that was separated by time, and then it returns. I caught you burnin’ photographs Like that could save you from your past History is like gravity It holds you down away from me You and me, we’ve both got sins And I don’t care about where you’ve been Don’t be sad and don’t explain This is where we start again Start again Come to me my sweetest friend Can you feel my heart again I’ll take you back where you belong And this will … Continue reading (90) Come To Me Playlist Fav
One of those songs that might speak differently to each of us…. When the days are cold And the cards all fold And the saints we see Are all made of gold When your dreams all fail And the ones we hail Are the worst of all And the blood’s run stale I wanna hide the truth I wanna shelter you But with the beast inside There’s nowhere we can hide No matter what we breed We still are made of greed This is my kingdom come This is my kingdom come When you feel my heat Look into my … Continue reading (83) Demons Playlist Fav
A Joni Mitchell cover done well – I sing along with James (Wolpert), The Voice Season 5, in my car…a lot. Oh I am a lonely painter I live in a box of paints I’m frightened by the devil And I’m drawn to those ones that ain’t afraid I remember that time that you told me, you said “Love is touching souls” Surely you touched mine ’cause Part of you pours out of me In these lines from time to time Oh you are in my blood like holy wine You taste so bitter And so sweet oh I could … Continue reading (76) A Case of You Playlist Fav
Know that not all these versions are in my favorites playlist (I did get a bit carried away this week) – wanna guess which one? And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening People writing songs that voices never share No one dare Disturb the sound of silence Disturbed and Myles Kennedy: yup! Nouela – a whole lot of tears from a whole lot of folks…good cover Passenger – a creative cover rendition from a guy with a creative voice Dance to the sounds of a haunting men’s … Continue reading (46) Sounds of Silence Favs (7)
Keane’s Tom Chaplin (lead singer) has one of those voices…and I think I understand his lyrics (or at least have my own wishful(?)…hopeful(?)…optimistic(?) interpretation)…. THIS IS THE LAST TIME This is the last time That I will say these words I remember the first time The first of many lies Sweep it into the corner Or hide it under the bed Say these things they go away But they never do Something I wasn’t sure of But I was in the middle of Something I forget now But I’ve seen too little of The last time You fall on me … Continue reading (39) Last Time Playlist Fav (6)
Oh my this song…makes me breathe deep Run – Sugarland (Jennifer Nettles is a Favs favorite of mine) and Matt Nathanson You pull me in close And buckle my knees I shake and I shiver just to feel you breathe You trace my lines (You trace your lines) Stirring my soul Shoot sparks at the heart of the world and I watch it explode? (I watch you yeah I watch you) You turn, turn, turn, turning me on Like a slow fire burn I Know that it’s wrong Still I run, run, run, run right into you Yeah, I run, … Continue reading (31) Run Playlist Fav
Meatloaf and Marion Raven sing this love song classic, covered most notably by Celine Dion (songwriter Jim Steinman told Meatloaf to wait supposedly because he wanted a woman to sing it). Even after waiting to do the song, I’m thinking Meatloaf does it much better. Being another guy musician in my amateur voice range, I remember many a times, singing many a songs note-for-note with the Meat in the acoustical confines of, amongst many places, my Datsun 310GX for one: I finished crying in the instant that you left And I can’t remember where or when or how And I … Continue reading (25) Loaf Playlist Fav (4)
” I am actually good, can’t help it if we’re tilted”… Pardon me for posting three versions of the same song – each good by itself. I just didn’t know which one to share. Love this artist; love her knee swings at the 2:11 marker of song (English version – 1st one); love the live version (3rd one). Unless you know French, to comprehend the lyrics leave the 2nd one to listen to till last. I betting that if this song doesn’t make you get up and dance and sing a couple of catchy phrases, you will at least be tapping your … Continue reading The Tilted x 3 Daily Dance(s)
OK y’all. Here’s a change-up post from the The Daily Cap(s). Jimmy Fallon is just a funny guy, and talented in so many ways…. If you can, give your political attitudes a break for three minutes 21 seconds and enjoy this for just being funny several times over: I’ve always like both genres of this music…now I’ve got them mashed! Who wants to form a quartet with me? This one is a hoot…and it brings back several childhood musical instrument memories too boot (I think I could have played anywhere in the band had I saved the “toys”): Continue reading Fun with Fallon
Now if you just so happen to watch the video, and you don’t catch yourself smiling, then I’ll come see you to massage that hardened heart of yours. It is, after all, the season to be jolly. So be it! Stop it with the political moaning, employment groaning, life-is-not-fair bellyaching, and the unsociable Facebooking for but a few minutes…and sing a Christmas song, for crying out loud, that might make others smile for all the right Godly reasons.
Guys, this is the kind of stuff where you either re-introduce yourself to all the single malts in the house, or you go to church.
If you recall, a couple weeks ago I did a quick post on Erma Bombeck. It was about how, after watching a PBS program of her life, it spoke in such a way as for me to better understand the attraction my mom had for the lady. So here I sit again tonight, moved to sniffles and teared eyes (damn you PBS) watching yet another favorite of mom’s, Chet Atkins, and coming to very similar conclusions with this man as I did with Erma.
Something is going on here gang and I’m not sure how to go about wrapping my arms around it. I could use some help, but if I’m drowning here, don’t be tossing me rocks….
So I see this interview and performance on Good Morning America Thursday morning. I’m thinking this Susan Boyle is a hoot of an interview and definitely a talent in Britain – hope she continues to do good.
Then OFSIL SueB and Deb both send me this link later in the day so I can apparently watch it over and over (#5 and it hasn’t gotten old yet). Thank you ladies.
Ms. Boyle follows a surprise amateur opera talent from last year, Paul Potts. Maybe they will one day sing a duet together. Maybe I’m just a sentimental romantic, or maybe just a sucker for something about when good people have good things happen to them. (it’s so much way-cool-neater than having bad thing happen to them) Continue reading “Simon says Susan”
