24 fév. 2006, 22h13m par DAC545So "Bee Charmer" is the song that I have been listening to the most lately. I definately like "Pretty Little Head" better than Nellie's first album.. kinda ironic that such a cool album is all held up in record company/artist arguments..
anyway.. Bee CharmerbyNellie McKay.. and it also has Cyndi Lauper singing..
so i decided that I wanted to write out the lyrics of this song since I can't find them anywhere.. if you can figure out any of the spots where I have ?? then please contribute or if I heard completely wrong at any point please correct.
So Cyndi's parts are in bold and nellie's parts are in italics with unknown or both just in normal text
*phone ringing and woman saying "hello"*
Sewed everything they said, together in a thread
Repeating in my mind each word like a rhyme
Like a penny seranade, looking through his song
He said the record's .. (??)

23 jan. 2006, 6h45m par wrkiWell, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, I am impressed with your lives. I am impressed with your connection and I am more impressed with your music after seeing this movie with Ms. Witherspoon and Mr. Phoenix portraying your life.
In keeping with La Bamba, we see an idealized version of the early days of music where anyone with gumption and some kind of zeal could grab the attention of a producer and be on their way to stardom with a little coaching.
Mr. Cash, you went through some of minor versions of hell and you were contemporaries with people who went through hell with you. Interesting to see you and Elvis Presley as contemporaries and to see you do stupid things that some thrill seekers do.
I wonder if it's the fate of all musical talent to try to expand themselves through pills, drugs or drink. We saw it with Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Kurt Cobain. We've seen it in countless others, too.
I wonder if Tito Puente had a history of substance abuse? Or Celia Cruz. …

When you say nothing at all
the touch of your hand says you'll never leave me.
I admit it, when the Ronan Keating version came out way back when in ’99 I loved it. It’s such sweet, twinkly, inoffensive pop. I prefer Allison’s version to Ronan’s, but really they sound very similar. Also, I can’t believe it’s six years since this song came out – I’m only eighteen, but that makes me feel really fucking old.

Pieces of Me
i can hardly catch my breath, i hope it lasts.
I can’t help it, but in the original and cover I’m quite fond of the harmonising bit that goes on in the chorus. Now that confessions over, I think this is probably from one of those punk-goes-pop albums (but really I have no idea). It’s acoustic though which instantly makes it better than the original. Lyrics ar still crap though.

17 jan. 2006, 5h56m par dop4It looks like I've got the link between my Launchcast player and last.fm working. Though the totals of 50 or songs are essentially meaningless. All it really shows at this point is that I like Cyndi Lauper wonder how long it takes to provide results that reflect my actual tastes?
It's not that I don't like Cyndi, it's just that she not at all the first person I'd expect to highlighted by my typical listening. And who WOULD be you ask??? Well, probably Kate Bush or even more likely these days Tori Amos. Or that's pretty much the case if you look at my launchcast station.
Now if I can figure how to get my listening from my ipod software to waft in this general direction....
