  • If I were a song...

    1. Nov. 2007, 10:58 von LonerRD

    If I were a song, I would sound like In A Silent Way. I like the atmosphere of this song, the vibrating background tunes, the moanful trumpet, this fragil and poetic statement about sentimentality.

    If I were fighting with my demons, it would sound like Back to Burn. Chaotic sound patterns mingle, a highly energetic rhythm, repeated battle cries, no surrender.

    If I were about to say I love you, I would sound like You'll Never Walk Alone. I have a way with words, but sometimes words can't express emotions. They utterly fail to deliver the message. The crescendo in the middle of this piano track somehow portrays my pathos.

    If there is nothing but despair inside me, it would sound like Sinnerman. I like the raging desperation, the hysteria showed while seeking shelter. There are two ways of despair: 1. capitulation, acceptance of fate or 2. struggling and fighting. This track describes my fight attitude.

    If I had a single dream to dream over and over again, it would be For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her. …
  • Does music change your life?

    27. Dez. 2006, 10:36 von LonerRD

    I recently had a discussion with friends about the chances that music might be able to influence someone's life. I am not talking about making music. Is there any chance that listening to music helps you through bad times, engrosses your thoughts permanently or even changes your life completely? I don't think so. The proper music might be able to intensify emotions, but after all the mind (soul) only responds to music which emphasizes existing thoughts and emotions. In fact listening to music means nothing if there's no inner urge to be inspired by it. The magic of music lies in your mind and soul, nowhere else.

    In retrospect there are a few songs having an influence on my life:

    A sad song, metaphorical in many ways.

    Pictures of You
    I've been listening to this song for decades now, I am still able to find a new meaning. It offers everything I need to know about longing.

    Racing in the Street
    Back in the days when I was a (drunk) teenager I messed every party sooner or later when gaining control over the CD player. …
  • For the romantics

    19. Okt. 2006, 8:26 von ledders

    I'm not usually one for soppy love songs... but a well written and beautifully sung love song has some sort of tingle-inducing power that can't be denied.

    These are a few of my faves:

    For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her

    And when you ran to me your cheeks flushed with the night
    We walked on frosted fields of juniper and lamplight
    I held your hand
    And when I awoke and felt you warm and near
    I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears
    Oh I love you, girl

    Into My Arms

    I don't believe in the existence of angels
    But looking at you I wonder if that's true
    But if I did I would summon them together
    And ask them to watch over you
    To each burn a candle for you
    To make bright and clear your path
    And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
    And guide you into my arms

    I Want You

    I want you
    No-one who wants you could want you more
    I want you
    Every night when I go off to bed and when I wake up
    I want you
    I want you
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers Live in Dortmund (11th of June '06)

    12. Jun. 2006, 14:32 von basserbeater

    i still can't find the right words to describe what i experienced yesterday evening! it was great! it was awesome! it was unbelievable! it was amazing! it was tremendous! it was incredible!

    but first of all i want to tell you a little story: when the dates were released we (5 mates and me) decided to go to the first show in dortmund because there are only 2 more dates in germany: again in dortmund today (12th of june) and in berlin. the fact that dortmund is nearer to us than berlin was the point that convinced us to go there.
    when the date came the tickets were free for sale two of us (patt and me) got up early to get the tickets...he ordered two and i ordered 4...but the server was full of people so he had to wait 10 minutes more than me...finally we both got our tickets
    a few days later our phone rang and someone from the "westfahlen halle" asked me whether i had ordered 4 tickets for the 11th of june...it was horrible "yes" i said quietly and she went on "we're sorry. …
