video clip


1986 live


Kim Wilde - You Keep Me Hangin' On [1986]
Set me free, why don't you babe?
get out my life, why don't you babe?
'cause you don't really love me
you just keep me hanging on

Set me free, why don't you babe?
get out my life, why don't you babe?
'cause you don't really need me
but you keep me hanging on

Why do you keep a-comin' around
playing with my heart
why don't you get out of my life
and let me make a brand new start
let me get over you
the way you've gotten over me, yeah

Set me free, why don't you babe?
get out my life, why don't you babe?
'cause you don't really love me
you just keep me hanging on
now you don't really need me
you just keep me hanging on

You say although we broke
you still just wanna be friends
but how can we still be friends
when seeing you only breaks my heart again
and there ain't nothing I can do about it...

Get out, get out of my life
and let me sleep at night
'cause you don't really love me
you just keep me hanging on

You say you still care for me
but your heart and soul needs to be free
now that you've got your freedom
you wanna still hold on to me
you don't want me for yourself
so let me find somebody else

Why don't you be a man about it and set me free
now you don't care a thing about me
you're just using me
get out, get out of my life
and let me sleep at night
'cause you don't really love me
you just keep me hanging on

'Cause you don't really need me
you just keep me hanging on


...Η πρώτη εκτέλεση του τραγουδιού το 1966 από τις the Supremes





...Ένα χρόνο αργότερα (1967) από τους Vanilla Fudge




...1977 και η πιο ωραία κατά την γνώμη μου εκτέλεση, αυτή του Rod Stewart.
Μέσα από το Foot Loose & Fancy Free... You Keep Me Hangin' On
(το video είναι Embedding disabled by request στο Youtube οπότε μια βόλτα από εκεί για να το δείτε)

Rod Stewart - You Keep Me Hangin' On



...Το 1996 το ξανακούμε αυτή την φορά από την φωνή της Reba McEntire




...Φτάνουμε στο 2005 και στους Madness μέσα από το The Dangermen Sessions: Volume One




...Τέλος το 2007 το ακούσαμε και από τον Δημήτρη Πουλικάκο και τους "Άσους του καράτε" σε μια εμφάνισή τους στο Rodeo live club




PS: Δεν κατάφερα να βρω μια ακόμα καταπληκτική εκτέλεση, αυτή του Wilson Pickett μέσα από το Right On του 1969...
...Την χρωστάω...

A Flock of Seagulls - I Ran (So Far Away) [1982]


...1982 και A Flock of Seagulls στο I Ran (So Far Away) μέσα από το πρώτο τους άλμπουμ που είχε σαν τίτλο το όνομα τους.

Ian | MySpace Video




A Flock of Seagulls - I Ran (So Far Away) [1982]
I walked along the avenue.
I never thought I'd meet a girl like you;
Meet a girl like you.
With auburn hair and tawny eyes;
The kind of eyes that hypnotize me through;
Hypnotize me through.

And I ran, I ran so far away.
I just ran, I ran all night and day.
I couldn't get away.

A cloud appears above your head;
A beam of light comes shining down on you,
Shining down on you.
The cloud is moving nearer still.
Aurora borealis comes in view;
Aurora comes in view.

And I ran, I ran so far away.
I just ran, I ran all night and day.
I couldn't get away.

Reached out a hand to touch your face;
You're slowly disappearing from my view;
Appearing from my view.
Reached out a hand to try again;
I'm floating in a beam of light with you;
A beam of light with you.

And I ran, I ran so far away.
I just ran, I ran all night and day.
And I ran, I ran so far away.
I just ran, I couldn't get away.

Babe Ruth - Black Dog [1972]


...Πάμε πολλά χρόνια πίσω.
1972 και οι Babe Ruth κυκλοφορούν την πρώτη τους δουλειά, το First Base.
Μέσα από αυτό λοιπόν, σας έχω το... Black Dog με την καταπληκτική φωνή της Jenny (Janita) Haan.


(Audio Only)[jazzyblue2]




Babe Ruth - Black Dog [1972]
Black dog up and sniffed his plate a-steamin' on the stove
Kids ain't seen you home all day, you're a gentleman born to roam
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

Have you seen the black dog's teeth, sharp like a knife?
Have you seen him tear apart a throat, to take a life?
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

Have you seen the black dog's eyes starin' in the fire?
It would not occur to him to question your desire
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

I've always had a fear of creatures cryin' in the dark
And every form of evil seems to bear an evil mark
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

My man lay beside me and my black dog's at my feet
He keeps me from my wanderin' life and he robs me of my sleep
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

Now I don't know the black dog's name but when I call him he will come
How'd I ever get that black dog? Lord, he's shown me what he wants
Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been today

Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been

Black dog don't believe in sin
Think of where the black dog's been
Think of where he's been

The Specials - Gangsters [1979]

...1979 και Gangsters από The Specials




The Specials - Gangsters [1979]
Why must you record my phone calls?
Are you planning a bootleg LP?
Said you've been threatened by gangsters
Now it's you, that's threatening me

Can't fight corruption with con tricks
They use the law to commit crime
And I dread, dread to think what the future will bring
When we're living in gangster time

Don't call me scar face

Can't interrupt while I'm talking
Or they'll confiscate all your guitars
and catch 22 says if I sing the truth
they won't make me an overnight star

Don't offer us legal protection
They use the law to commit crime
I dread to think what the future will bring
When we're living in gangster time

2000 και "Kathy's Song" από τους Apoptygma Berzerk και από το album τους "Welcome to Earth".


Live performance (2000 tour)


Victoria Mix by VNV Nation


Apoptygma Berzerk - Kathy's Song [2000]

In the beginning
God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form and void.
And darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And God said: 'Let there be light'
And there was light.
And God saw the light that it was good.
And God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light day, and the darkness he called night.
And God saw everything that he had made, and behold... it was good.
And God created man.
And man created machine,
And machine,
Machine created music.
And machine saw everything it had made and said: 'Behold'

Oh my love, it's time
You know how it feels
You read between the lines
You know me better than I do
I lost again, my friend
You know I'm not a saint
You knew it all this time
Still you've been waiting for me here...

Oh my love, it's time
You know how it feels
You read between the lines
And know me better than I do
I'm lost again my friend
You know I'm not a saint
You've known it all this time
Still you've been waiting for me here...

And machine saw everything it had made and said: 'Behold'

Come lie next to me
Know why, you and me are one
Come lie next to me
No lies, you and me are one

(Please) Come lie next to me
Know why, you and me are one
Come lie next to me
No lies, you and me are one...

Come lie next to me
Know why, you and me are one
Come lie next to me
No lies, you and me are one

(You know I'm not a saint...)

You know I'm not a saint...
You know I'm not a saint...

And on the seventh day, the Machine pressed stop...

Monika - Over the hill [2008]


remember... Monika και Over the hill μέσα από το Avatar (2008)




Monika - Over the hill [2008]

Why?
Tell me, why?
You don't call me anymore
Don't you want me anymore?

Black
It's all black
It's the colour of my heart
It's the colour of my eyes

But I'm here
Yes I'm here
Everybody seems to mean so much
Everybody seems to think I'm fine

Late
It's too late
I am punishing myself
By admitting it's too late

Laugh
You may laugh
You can laugh at me for days
You may spit me if you want

But I'm here
I'm still here
Everybody seems to mean so much
Everybody seems to think I'm fine

Look at me
There were more to see
There were more to be proud of...

Elvis Costello & the Attractions - Oliver's Army [1979]





remember... 1979 και μέσα από το Armed Forces ο Elvis Costello μαζί με τους "the Attractions" στο Oliver's Army.




Oliver's Army live


Elvis Costello & the Attractions - Oliver's Army [1979]

Don't start me talking
I could talk all night
My mind goes sleepwalking
While I'm putting the world to right
Called careers information
Have you got yourself an occupation?

Oliver's army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today

There was a checkpoint Charlie
He didn't crack a smile
But it's no laughing party
When you've been on the murder mile

Only takes one itchy trigger
One more widow, one less white nigger

(Chorus)

Hong Kong is up for grabs
London is full of Arabs
We could be in Palestine
Overrun by a Chinese line
With the boys from the Mersey and the Thames and the Tyne

But there's no danger
It's a professional career
Though it could be arranged
With just a word in Mr. Churchill's ear

If you're out of luck or out of work
We could send you to Johannesburg

come fuels from the sea

wasted electricity


I want some energy

all we need is to learn to save

and if were made to throw away

it doesn't change the city cost

the alternative is only one

the final source of energy

solar electricity

Rory Gallagher - Bad Penny [1979]


remember... Bad Penny από τον Rory Gallagher μέσα από το Top Priority που κυκλοφόρησε το 1979...





1985 live...


1980 live...



Rory Gallagher - Bad Penny [1979]
Well, like a bad penny you've turned up again,
You're in my sights, there's a mist on my lens.
I think you know how it was when I tripped and fell,
Well, you double-dealed me, baby and I broke like a shell.

Like a bad penny you've sure lost the glow
But I'm out of reach, your smile's sure gone cold.
Well, it can't ever be like it was then,
Well, don't you fool with me, baby,
Don't you mess with my plans.

Some stormy nights, your memory haunts me,
You won't go away.

Well, like a bad penny you have turned up in the change,
Try to fit into the picture, you can't get inside the frame.
I think you know I'm still sore, but I'm on the mend,
Times sure have changed, it won't happen again.

Well, like a bad penny spins around and around,
Well, you won't know what's gone wrong when it all falls down,
You got to learn from now on to stop playing games,
You ought to keep on moving, you got to spin on your way.

Some lonely nights, I hear you calling,
Won't you go away?

Well, like a bad penny you have turned up again,
You're in my sights, there's a mist on my lens.
I think you know how it was when I tripped and fell,
Well, you double-dealed me, baby, I cracked like a shell.

If theres lessons to be learned.
I’d rather get my jamming words in first so,
When your playing with desire.
Don’t come running to my place when it burns like fire.

Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me .. yeah
Sweet about me, nothing sweet about me .. yeah...

Blue, blue, blue, waves they crash.
As time goes by, so hard to catch.
Too, too smooth, ain’t all that.
Why don’t you ride, my side of the tracks.

If theres lessons to be learned.
I’d rather get my jamming words in first so.
Tell you something that I’ve found.
That the worlds a better place when its upside down, boy.

If theres lessons to be learned.

Σωκράτης Μάλαμας - Διάφανος [2006]

Το Δεκέμβρη του 2006 κυκλοφόρησε η προτελευταία δουλειά του Θανάση Παπακωνσταντίνου με τίτλο "Διάφανος".
Είναι ο πρώτος δίσκος σε παραγωγή του ίδιου και οι ηχογραφήσεις οι όποιες είναι "live" με την συμμετοχή όλων των μουσικών και κάποιες φορές και των ερμηνευτών έγιναν στο Μεταξοχώρι Αγιάς.
Οι στίχοι είναι δικοί του όπως και η μουσική ενώ η ενορχηστρώσεις έγιναν από τους μουσικούς που συμμετέχουν.
Τα τραγούδια του ερμηνεύουν ο Σωκράτης Μάλαμας, η Μάρθα Φριντζήλα, ο Φώτης Σιώτας ο ίδιος και μέλη της οικογένειας του...

"Διάφανος" λοιπόν από τον Σωκράτη Μάλαμα...



...και εδώ σε live εκτέλεση στις 31/08/2008.
(amateur video)


Σωκράτης Μάλαμας - Διάφανος [2006]
Στου δειλινού την άκρη αποκοιμήθηκα
σαν ξένος σαν ξενάκι σαν παντά ξένος.
Κι ήρθε και κατακάθισε πάνω μου σα σεντόνι
όλη της γης η σκόνη.

Ήρθε με τη σειρά της κι η μαύρη θάλασσα·
έφερε ένα καράβι ακυβέρνητο.
Aνέβηκα σαν άνεμος, ανέβηκα σαν κλέφτης,
το ψέμα δεν το βλέπεις;

Στη πλώρη ακουμπισμένος ένας διάφανος
τα κόκαλα μετράει, μένει άφωνος.
Τρώει την πέτρα σαν ψωμί ο Καίσαρας Βαλιέχο·
άλλο αδερφό δεν έχω.

Σπιθίζει το τσιγάρο σε κάθε ρουφηξιά·
η Ισπανία γέρνει κι η μόνη που νικά,
η ηδονή που μας γεννά, που παίζει το χαρτί μας
χωρίς τη θέλησή μας.

Στου δειλινού την άκρη δεν βλέπεις όνειρα·
αυτά που γίναν βλέπεις και τα επόμενα.
Βλέπεις τον άνθρωπο μικρό που τον πατάν στ' αλήθεια
τα πόδια του τα ίδια...

Mέσα από το "Fashion Nugget" του 1996...











"The Distance"



CAKE - The Distance [1996]
Reluctantly crouched at the starting line,
engines pumping and thumping in time.
the green light flashes, the flags go up.
churning and burning, they yearn for the cup.
they deftly maneuver and muscle for rank,
fuel burning fast on an empty tank.
reckless and wild, they pour through the turns.
their prowess is potent and secretly stern.
as they speed through the finish, the flags go down.
the fans get up and they get out of town.
the arena is empty except for one man,
still driving and striving as fast as he can.
the sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
and long ago somebody left with the cup.
but he's driving and striving and hugging the turns.
and thinking of someone for whom he still burns.

he's going the distance.
he's going for speed.
she's all alone
all alone in her time of need.
because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
he's fighting and biting and riding on his horse,
he's going the distance.


no trophy, no flowers, no flashbulbs, no wine,
he's haunted by something he cannot define.
bowel-shaking earthquakes of doubt and remorse,
assail him, impale him with monster-truck force.
in his mind, he's still driving, still making the grade.
she's hoping in time that her memories will fade.
cause he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
he's fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
the sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
and long ago somebody left with the cup.
but he's striving and driving and hugging the turns.
and thinking of someone for whom he still burns.

cause he's going the distance.
he's going for speed.
she's all alone
all alone in her time of need.
because he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
he's fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
he's racing and pacing and plotting the course,
he's fighting and biting and riding on his horse.
he's going the distance.
he's going for speed.
he's going the distance.

The Stooges - I Wanna Be your Dog [1969]



1967 και στο Michigan των ΗΠΑ ο Iggy Pop (vocals), o Dave Alexander (bass), o Scott Ashton (drums) και ο Ron Ashton (guitar) έφτιαξαν τους The Stooges (γνωστοί και ως The Psychedelic Stooges και Iggy and The Stooges).
Το 1969 κυκλοφορούν το πρώτο τους album με τίτλο το όνομα τους.


Θα ακολουθήσει το "Fun House"(1970) με νέο μέλος του γκρουπ τον Steven MacKay (saxophone).
Την ίδια χρονιά μετά την συμμετοχή του γκρουπ στο Goose Lake International Music Festival αποχωρεί ο Dave Alexander (ο οποίος πέθανε 5 χρόνια αργότερα από πνευμονικό οίδημα).
Το 1973 με το όνομα Iggy and The Stooges, κυκλοφορούν το "Raw Power" (με τον Ron Ashton στο μπάσο και τον James Williamson στην κιθάρα) και από το 1974 το γκρουπ αποτελεί παρελθόν…
Το 2003 ο Iggy, τα αδέλφια Ashton, ο Steven MacKay μαζί με τον Mike Watt (bass) ξαναενώθηκαν και το 2007 κυκλοφορεί το "The Weirdness".
Πριν λίγες μέρες στις 6 Ιανουαρίου του 2009 "έφυγε" και ο Ron Ashton μετά από καρδιακό επεισόδιο…

The Stooges λοιπόν και "I Wanna Be your Dog" μέσα από το "The Stooges"...

Anathema - Lost Control [1998]


Tο Lost Control από τους Anathema μέσα από το Alternative 4 του 1998.
Την ιδέα για το τίτλο του album έδωσε ένα βιβλίο του Leslie Watkins με τίτλο “Alternative 3”
Οι Anathema ξεκίνησαν στο Liverpool το 1990 με το όνομα Pagan Angel.
Από το 1991 που άλλαξαν το όνομα τους έως και το 2003 (με αρκετές αλλαγές και στην σύνθεση τους) κυκλοφόρησαν συνολικά 7 albums.

Σε λίγες μέρες (μετά από πολλές αναβολές) κυκλοφορεί η καινούρια τους δουλειά με τίτλο Horizons...

(LIVE from A Moment In Time DVD, 2006)


Anathema - Lost Control [1998]
Life has betrayed me once again,
I accept some things will never change.
I've let your tiny minds magnify my agony,
and it's left me with a chem'cal dependency for sanity.

Yes, I am falling... how much longer till I hit the ground?
I can't tell you why I'm breaking down.
Do you wonder why I prefer to be alone?
Have I really lost control?

I'm coming to an end,
I've realised what I could have been.
I can't sleep so I take a breath and hide behind my bravest mask,
I admit I've lost control.

Ten Years After - I'd Love to Change the World [1971]



Οι Ten Years After [Alvin Lee (guitar, vocals), Leo Lyons (bass), Chick Churchill (keyboards)και Ric Lee (drums)] στο I'd Love to Change the World.
Ένα τραγούδι που υπάρχει μέσα στο A Space In Time που κυκλοφόρησε το 1971 και ήταν το έβδομο κατά σειρά album τους.

Το γκρουπ δημιουργήθηκε το 1966 και για το όνομά του υπάρχουν δυο εκδοχές.
Τη μια τη δίνει ο δημοσιογράφος Jerry Hopkins στη βιογραφία του Elvis Presley το 1971 και σύμφωνα με αυτήν ο Alvin Lee έδωσε το όνομα αυτό στο γκρουπ γιατί ξεκίνησαν 10 χρόνια μετά το ξεκίνημα του μεγάλου του ειδώλου (Elvis).
Η δεύτερη εκδοχή είναι ότι το 1966 υπήρχε ένας τοπικός ραδιοφωνικός σταθμός στο Λονδίνο με αυτό το όνομα...
Έως το 1974 που διαλύθηκαν κυκλοφόρησαν συνολικά 11 albums και μία από τις κορυφαίες τους στιγμές ήταν η συμμετοχή τους στο Woodstock τον Αύγουστο του 1969.

Το 1983 έγινε μια πρώτη προσπάθεια επανένωσης με την συμμετοχή τους στο Reading Festival.
Το 1989 έγινε και η δεύτερη προσπάθεια που είχε σαν αποτέλεσμα αρκετές live εμφανίσεις και την κυκλοφορία του About Time.

Από το 2004 αρχίζει η μετά-Alvin Lee εποχή τους. Τα υπόλοιπα μέλη του γκρουπ μαζί με τον Joe Gooch στην κιθάρα και στα φωνητικά, κυκλοφορούν κάποιες δουλειές τους με τελευταία το Evolution του 2008...

Ten Years After - I'd Love to Change the World [1971]

Everywhere is freaks and hairies
Dykes and fairies, tell me where is sanity
Tax the rich, feed the poor
Till there are no rich no more

Id love to change the world
But I dont know what to do
So Ill leave it up to you

Population keeps on breeding
Nation bleeding, still more feeding economy
Life is funny, skies are sunny
Bees make honey, who needs money, monopoly

Id love to change the world
But I dont know what to do
So Ill leave it up to you

World pollution, theres no solution
Institution, electrocution
Just black and white, rich or poor
Them and us, stop the war

Id love to change the world
But I dont know what to do
So Ill leave it up to you

The Smiths - There Is a Light That Never Goes Out [1986]
Take me out tonight
Where theres music and theres people
And theyre young and alive
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I havent got one
Anymore

Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people and i
Want to see life
Driving in your car
Oh, please dont drop me home
Because its not my home, its their
Home, and Im welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I dont care
I dont care, I dont care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought oh god, my chance has come at last
(but then a strange fear gripped me and i
Just couldnt ask)

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere, I dont care
I dont care, I dont care
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I havent got one, da ...
Oh, I havent got one

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine

Oh, there is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out...

Phil Collins - In The Air Tonight [1981]




Αρχές του 1981 και ο Phil Collins των Genesis κάνει την πρώτη του solo δισκογραφική προσπάθεια με το Face Value. Από εκεί ξεχωρίζει το In The Air Tonight...




...Κι εδώ μια live εκτέλεση


Phil Collins - In The Air Tonight [1981]

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord
Ive been waiting for this moment, all my life, oh lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord, oh lord

Well, if you told me you were drowning
I would not lend a hand
Ive seen your face before my friend
But I dont know if you know who I am
Well, I was there and I saw what you did
I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off the grin, I know where youve been
Its all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord
Ive been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh lord
I can feel it in the air tonight, oh lord, oh lord
And Ive been waiting for this moment all my life, oh lord, oh lord

Well I remember, I remember dont worry
How could I ever forget, its the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, no you dont fool me
The hurt doesnt show; but the pain still grows
Its no stranger to you or me

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord...

Woven Ηand - Sparrow Falls [2004]



Το Sparrow Falls από τους Woven Ηand.
Μέσα από το Consider the Birds που κυκλοφόρησε το 2004...





(only audio)



Woven Ηand - Sparrow Falls [2004]
Holy king cause my skin to crawl
Away from every evil thing
In a cotton mouth in a cotton mouth
Quick across the water bring

Your hand speak of a broken door handle
Of thoughts and deeds a little bird sings
A little bird sings
Star rise on the face of the water
Quiet comes on the wing of a lark
Call out in an old time holler
Call out if you're afraid of your dark

I will you no grief no to see you fall
Once had a mind to I'm done with that
I mean you no harm at all

What stands between us
Runs right through my head
It's water still under the bridge
We come together in a horsehead union
Hang my tobacco hands from a beam
Silver handled and chest of drawers
Out of the longhouse I took what's yours
I took what's yours

I will you no grief no to see you fall
Once had a mind to I'm done with that
I mean you no harm at all

I will you no grief no to see you fall
Once had a mind to I'm done with that
I'm done with that
I mean you no harm at all

TV on the Radio - Wolf Like Me [2006]



Από τους TV on the Radio το Wolf Like Me.
Υπάρχει μέσα στο Return to Cookie Mountain που κυκλοφόρησε το 2006




TV on the Radio - Wolf Like Me [2006]
Say say my playmate
Won't you lay hands on me
Mirror my malady
Transfer my tragedy

Got a curse I cannot lift
Shines when the sunset shifts
When the moon is round and full
Gotta bust that box gotta gut that fish

My mind's aflame

We could jet in a stolen car
But I bet we wouldn't get too far
Before the transformation takes
And bloodlust tanks and
Crave gets slaked

My mind has changed my body's frame but god I like it
My heart's aflame my body's strained but god I like it

My mind has changed my body's frame but god I like it
My heart's aflame my body's strained but god I like it

Charge me your day rate
I'll turn you out in kind
When the moon is round and full
Gonna teach you tricks that'll blow your mongrel mind

Baby doll I recognize
You're a hideous thing inside
If ever there were a lucky kind it's
You you you you

I know it's strange another way to get to know you
You'll never know unless we go so let me show you
I know its strange another way to get to know you
We've got till noon here comes the moon so let it show you
Show you now

Dream me oh dreamer
Down to the floor
Open my hands and let them
Weave onto yours

Feel me, completer
Down to my core
Open my heart and let it
Bleed onto yours

Feeding on fever
Down on all fours
Show you what all the
Howlin's for

Hey hey my playmate
Let me lay waste to thee
Burned down their hanging trees
It's hot here hot here hot here hot here

Got a curse we cannot lift
Shines when the sunshine shifts
There's a curse comes with a kiss
The bite that binds the gift that gives

Now that we got gone for good
Writhing under your riding hood
Tell your grandma and your mama too
It's true
We're howling forever

The Who - Behind Blue Eyes [1971]




The Who και Behind Blue Eyes από το album Who's Next (1971)
Εδώ σε live εκτέλεση από το Hammersmith Odeon του Λονδινου το 1979...



The Who - Behind Blue Eyes [1971]
No one knows what its like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes

No one knows what its like
To be hated
To be fated
To telling only lies

But my dreams
They arent as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
Thats never free

No one knows what its like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you

No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through

But my dreams
They arent as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
Thats never free

When my fist clenches, crack it open
Before I use it and lose my cool
When I smile, tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a fool

If I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
If I shiver, please give me a blanket
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

No one knows what its like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes

Slut - Welcome (2) [2001]


Σας καλωσορίζω λοιπόν στο blog μου για δεύτερη φορά...

2001 και οι Slut από την Γερμανία κυκλοφορουν το album τους Lookbook.
Απ' αυτό ξεχωρίζει το Welcome (2)...




Slut - Welcome (2) [2001]
Woke like a baby
Woke
They took somebody from me...
This time I think it was forever

Looks like a movie
Looks
Like they took somebody from me...
I wish I could return to when I

Woke like a lover
Woke
And found somebody with me

I wish I wasn't me
I wish I wasn't me...

Now I'm standing at the edge of my world
And I'm looking for a place to stay
Standing at the edge of my world...

Joked for a minute
Joked
Get somebody for me...
And all the time you've seen me I just

Spoke in a riddle
Spoke
Get somebody for me...
I hoped that I could make it but I

Broke like a mirror
I Broke
And choked in the middle, indeed...

I wish I wasn't me
I wish I wasn't me...

Now I'm standing at the edge of my world
And I'm looking for a place to stay
Standing at the edge of my world
And that's ok

Sleep like a baby
Sleep

music...s!!!
