Nov 13 2009, 14:09 di LlorenzaCrosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Déjà Vu
The gain of a new son: Neil Young has finally arrived. Strangely the same happens as with Buffalo Springfield: where the previous CSN-album was a quite coherent one, this one seems (just like Buffalo Springfield Again) more a compilation of songs made by great individuals of course. I guess Neil Young is the one to blame!
After the first nice but not that memorable two songs, Almost Cut My Hair tells us what it is all about: slicing electric guitars, superb singing by Crosby (reminds me a bit of Jason Molina here). It’s not a coincidence this is the first song on the album that involves Neil Young on a guitar, I guess. Great song!
Can a guitar weep and can a voice mourn more than Neil Young’s than in Helpless? No, of course not. Shivers!
Déjà vu is happy to present itself as a mini-suite (at least I like to think so), something CSN already proved to be good at. And the harmonic singing sounds ni-i-i-ce! Perfection is in the details…

Feb 12 2009, 3:24 di yousknakajmMade a list for our new house (to be built...soon!).
May these songs brighten our new life!
Here's for the garden and the first floor (Living, Dining, Kitchen and Bedroom).
Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head
"But there's one thing I know/The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me/It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me"
"Old dirt road/knee deep snow/Watching the fire as we grow o-o-o-o-old"
"I take sugar with tea/You take milk if you please/Like you talking to me/Because you ease my mind"
"Our house is a very, very, very fine house/With two cats in the yard/Life used to be so hard/Now everything is easy 'cause of you"
Kinda Wasted Without You
"You step right up into my dreams/Now you know what I mean/Kinda wasted without you"
The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)
"Life, I love you/All is groovy"
Haven't We Met
Nov 22 2008, 23:06 di DerekBowieI think I've promised the world one last Big Star review. I did #1 Record and I did Radio City, so now it's time for Third/Sister Lovers, also tagged as Third / Sister Lovers, Third - Sister Lovers and simply Third. The sister lovers part comes about because I think at that point Chilton and Stephens were dating sisters.
I should probably mention that in going to this album in iTunes, I immediately got distracted and started listening instead to songs from Radio City. Damn, but that album's good.
So, Third starts off with Kizza Me. The yelping vocals are an introduction to the warped reality that is this album. The prominent tinkly piano and fuzzy guitar give this song a chaotic, unsettled tone.
I want to feel you deep inside
I want to feel you deep inside
I want to feel you
Lesa, why not?
The song ends at his command: That's enough, baby...
Since this album wasn't released properly while the band was together, the tracklisting isn't set in stone and a couple of versions are floating around. …
Giu 3 2008, 21:44 di xn0153xstolen from someone I forgot the name...
1. How did you get into 29? Joy Division
A friend of mine gave me a tape with Ice Age and I kept listening to it all day long... I fell in love with that song and then, years later, I found the 4 cd box Heart and Soul and bought it... only my copy came with cds 1, 2, 4 and 4... no 3... which, today, I think is the best of the collection... I had to complain until I was blue in the mouth (Monty Python reference, anyone?) so I could get a complete copy with cd # 3 in it! : )
oh, the memories... lol
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Bad Brains
Probably something off I Against I or Quickness, which, I HATED! I have this cousin which is a HUGE Bad Brains fan and he kept trying to make me like it, only I hated HR's voice and could never stand 5 seconds of it (with that in mind, it was probably something off Quickness, which, til this day, kinda puts me off when compared to I Against I stuff)...

Ott 6 2006, 17:01 di groggitsSo there's a lot of songs written about famous people - not obviously, but I guess they're kind of inspired by people. For example, the ones I can think of:
English Girls Approximately is about Beth Orton
Nobody Girl is about Winona Ryder
Just Another is also about Winona Ryder (aint she special!)
Our House is about Joni Mitchell
Layla was about Patti Harrison
Hey Jude is about Julian Lennon
How Do You Sleep? is about Paul McCartney
All great tunes - Imagine finding out you were the muse to one of those kind of songs!
