Thank you for letting me join in on the fun! (and for val, thanks dood.) :O)

maybe souls "Can you tell me where my country lies?" said the unifaun to his true love's eyes. "It lies with me!" cried the Queen of Maybe - for her merchandise, he traded in his prize ..." Dancing With the Moonlit Knight, 1973 Peter Gabriel- Genesis The 1st post of this blog, gaves the title to the states of our souls, maybe... To enjoy. Only.

note: posted yesterday

so and so

I played this song for John and told him I really loved it and he said "huh?" where's the melody? I laughed and he shook his head and said not my favourite... what do you guys think?

My choice for 2009 year's song is here in this post. This was a song that literally made me stop always and take me to anywhere else. This song named "Cathy" is not some song. Rodrigo Leão is a remarkable composer as anyone can testify everywhere. But this song is much more special because it is sung "only" by the noble and genial Neil Hannon.

It certainly is not......, in sunny, warm Cape Town! Sorry, I have been totally incomunicado, no internet access! Merry Christmas with love from SA!

Not yet, but I couldn't resist...

I just love this cover!

Again and Again

I have a new commission that I start on Monday so this will be my last post for a bit because I need to work hard and long hours now but I wanted to leave you with this groovy song by Inara George. I have posted about her on my blog because she was in a band called Lode that John managed and I participated in the art for their first album and toured with them etc. She is a Topanga girl and her father was Lowell George of Little Feat and her godfather is Jackson Brown. If you have not heard of this duo she is part of it is called "The Bird and the Bee. Enjoy :)

Oh... those dancing days!

More queens for kings?


PS: use headphones please
by the temporary lost of the clip above this is another version of this "Islands" from The XX. Not so good in sound but with a sensual dance show

and she dared to come

I was about to prepare a picture composition and say if the queen won't come with the crown, the crown must go to the queen. However the queen came for the people "rather boring because she was not wearing her crown" in Her Majesty words.

My daughter loves the movie, I love the soundtrack...most of it anyway! There is no video yet, so I just leave you the sound for you to enjoy. Hope U2b does not block anyone. Good night!

Saturday Night Fever

An hard to find take.
i wanted to post this so long ago... :-)

From post to Val's surprise. I said the song is a divagation about human individuality and relationship. I said so because it was enough to understand it. Cosmotics (not cosmic) is an abstract concept based on cosmic osmosis used per example 100 years ago by Fernando Pessoa and his friends joining poetry with philosophy. Nowadays is used as art concept in ethereal poetry, music and painting. This song is entirely cosmotic, philosophically speaking. It is also characterized as hypnotic because repeats rhythms and concepts in order. I consider myself happy to take nothing to understand this song. Taking Flor's translation, I made another as I "listen" to it.

Things which happen out of time are not subjected to consensus they stay deep down while the remainder lose. Packaged knowledges serves the present status, Stood apart and embargoed by the majority. If out of time and present time could be related and assimilated we wouldn't need cosmotic trips. Theories would be noticed but intelligence restricts human autonomy.

Good night! :-) Good morning! :-)

from queen Val

here's our new and honorable fan from Val's kingdom: In the mean time, we humbly bow to the Queen asking her to visit us with the crown in her head.

s u r p r i s e

Coisas que acontecem no contratempo
Não se sujeitam ao consenso
Ficam no fundo
Enquanto o resíduo perece
Sabedorias feitas na manga
Servem ao estado presente
Ficam distintos
Enquanto a maioria embarga
Se a relação do contratempo
E do tempo presente
Não se precisava de viagens cosmóticas
As teorias seriam atendidas
Mas a inteligência limita
a autonomia humana

Does she really? does she do it? Something a bit different, with many thanks to Ldr. The video has nothing to do with the singer, but it's the best sound.

Day 'n' Nite

I changed the video because the record company changed the lyrics and edited the original song.

We're doing the time warp tonight!

…@ the Hippodrome Theatre! And madness will certainly take its toll! “It’s just a jump to the left, then a step to the right Put your hands on your hips and bend your knees in tight But it’s the pelvic thrust that drives you insane Let’s do the time warp again”

Sticking with vampires...

...but the film is not why I'm posting this, I just like this Bon Iver.
Sorry about the picture, I couldn't find anything else, just enjoy the sound!

Happy Birthday KoM!

I think this is the perfect moment for my first post, so with no further ado, here's a Vampire Weekend song to celebrate! Happy Birthday and many more happy days with lots of music! Party on! :)

from a radio program anniversary

"Vidro Azul" (blue glass) is a radio program that was born 7 years ago at Radio University of Coimbra. I began to hear this program only when it started to be transmitted nearly 2 years ago in RADAR. The aesthetics of the program immediately led me to elect it as one of my worship radio programs. In this anniversary issue, I chose sequence 8 and 9 of the program in the clips below. These are amateur clips. First, with studio sound. Then, live recordings.

have a nice day, have a nice night :-)

I've climbed it, I'm at the top!

Mike will probably kill me, or at least call me a traitor. However, as much as I love the Led Zeppelin original, I just find this absolutely amazing! Stanley Jordan's two-handed tapping technique, ( is something that's impossible to ignore or forget! Hope you enjoy. PS: Thanx Alex!

today is the World Day of Music, they say

naturträne lyrics
from this post
"The World Day of Music was initiated by Yehudi Menuhin back in 1975, and it still encourages the people to free their minds and play loosely, spontaneously, wondrously music – without any prejudice against the different music genres in public places. ..."

dark not so out of time

If I wasn't so busy and so tired I'd post this about 10 days ago.

all flowers take 2

Remember this post? The song wasn't published. It was shown in Vidro Azul a RADAR radio program and I made a post with it. I forgot until yesterday to join Vidro Azul's Facebook Group and obviously I remembered that post which I revisited... But the clip made with that home recording is gone now as you can see if you try to play it... So I changed the clip of the original post here... I don't know how much it will resist the editor guardians... Until then, enjoy also this solo & alive sound of Jeff:

motion picture soundtrack

KidA is this year's family album on RADAR. Other great competitors to the 1st postition, was Pixies' Doolittle and the Beatles' White Album. They all deserved the first place. This is my week's song:
Red wine and sleeping pills Help me get back to your arms ... Stop sending letters Letters always get burned It's not like the movies They fed us on little white lies . I think you're crazy, maybe . I will see you in the next life ... (Beautiful angel Pulled apart at birth Limbless and helpless I can't even recognize you . I think you're crazy, maybe . I will see you in the next life ...

A doorway to a thousand churches?

Bordeaux, not Paris!

tiny children

There are so many songs i'd like to post... But all is new without clips... So here's an old song about some state of soul:
Half the time as I sit in disarray I am thinking of a dream I never had Then I awake, and for a while I call your name in Colin’s house But tiny children have a way of falling down Oh, I could make a meal Of that wonderful despair I feel But waking up I turn and face the wall The car arrives and takes me back again Drifting through imaginary planes And fighting men aboard a raft A sailing ship has run aground And confidence is valued in these days But each character Is plundering my home And taking everything that is my own Oh no, I’m not sure about Those things that I care about Oh no, I’m not sure, not any more...
sorry, I had to make this, 'cause the u2b clip isn't available to me...

Last Summer

Last summer we were lucky to visit Yosemite before it got devastated by the fire. On our way from SF to LA I was listening to this on my ipod when we heard about the fire on the radio.

Stipe just looks like himself, but the girl in the video reminds me of a very well known quote from the film When Harry met Sally!...I'll have what she is having! :D She just looks SO happy! 8-))

...and it just keeps getting better!

I have a mansion, forget the price / Ain't never been there, they tell me it's nice I live in hotels, tear out the walls/ I have accountants pay for it all They say I'm crazy but I have a good time/ I'm just looking for clues at the scene of the crime Life's been good to me so far My Maserati does one-eighty-five/ I lost my license, now I don't drive I have a limo, ride in the back/ I lock the doors in case I'm attacked I make hit records, my fans they can't wait/ They write me letters, tell me I'm great So I got me an office, gold records on the wall/ Just leave a message, maybe I'll call Lucky I'm sane after all I've been through/ (Everybody say “I'm cool”......”He's cool”) I can't complain but sometimes I still do/ Life's been good to me so far I go to parties, sometimes until four/ It's hard to leave when you can't find the door It's tough to handle this fortune and fame/ Everybody's so different, I haven't changed They say I'm lazy but it takes all my time/ (Everybody say “Oh, yeah”..... “Oh, yeah”) I keep on goin’ guess I'll never know why/ Life's been good to me so far
