Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue (August 2010)

Something old

Nancy Wilson –“Face it girl, its over” (Live)
Nancy Wilson, AMAZING  Voice!!  One of her Lp's 'Today, Tomorrow, Forever', is one of my all time Sunday Morning Lp's. This song is the ‘he’s just not that into you’ of music. Did I mention she has an amazing voice??

some great lyric's in the piece-

“When he glances at his watch
And it isn't late
And you try hard to amuse him
And he doesn't concentrate

Just how plainly can he tell you
Does he have to shout out loud
Face it girl, its over

Whats the use in hanging on

As he slowly slips away from you

Don't go along for the ride
Keep some semblance of pride
Theres really nothing you can do”

Enough said!!!! Check out the live version of the tune (Click here to watch the clip)

Something new

The National- “Bloodbuzz Ohio”
Great mood, tight and brilliant drumming, great use of E-bow and the horns sound better in the live version, though the vocals needed to be a bit louder in the mix,  but it still ROCKS and i play this continuously in the car!!!
A selection of some great lyrical  imagery:

“I was carried
to Ohio in a swarm of bees.
I never married
But Ohio don’t remember me.”

“I still owe money
to the money
to the money I owe.”

“I never thought about love
when I thought about home.”

Something borrowed

Lisa Mitchell- Romeo and Juliet (Dire straits cover).
Our own Lisa Mitchell, She is amazing, so talented, and what a lovely voice. She soundtracked part of my overseas trip this year. She does change some of the lyrics in the song and doesn't sing the whole 5-6 mins of it, but i think she makes this her own.
some of the brilliant lyrics: 
“Come up on different streets they both were streets of shame
Both dirty both mean yes and the dream was just the same
And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real
How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals?

When you can fall for chains of silver you can fall for chains of gold
You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold”
Lisa live on triple J's Like a version - (Click here to watch the clip)
Something blue

The 5, 6, 7, 8’s –  "I’m Blue"

The 5, 6, 7, 8's, do I need to say any more??? These women ROCK!!!! I don't care that i don't understand what they are saying, I just wish I could ROCK as much and as well as they do!! We need more woman rocking it with drums and guitars.

  1. oh, you do have such fantastic taste in music! I lurve Bloodbuzz too - such a great song! And you made me remember the last 5,6,7,8's gig at the Prince when they decided to do the Beatles, 'do you rove me'!
