And I'll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I'll know my name as it's called again

Countdown INTERPOL

5 more days! 5 more days!! 5 more days!!! (I am chanting this at the top of my lungs!!!!)


Interpol- Slow Hands

Yeah but nobody searches
Nobody cares somehow
When the loving that you've wasted
Comes raining from a hapless cloud
And I might stop and look upon your face
Disappear in the sweet, sweet gaze
See the living that surrounds me
Dissipate in a violet place

Can't you see what you've done to my heart
And soul?
This is a wasteland now

We spies
We slow hands
Put the weights all around yourself
We spies
Oh yeah we slow hands
You put the weights all around yourself now

I submit my incentive is romance
I watched the pole dance of the stars
We rejoice because the hurting is so painless
>From the distance of passing cars
But I am married to your charms & grace
I just go crazy like the good old days
You make me want to pick up a guitar
And celebrate the myriad ways that I love you

Can you see what you've done to my heart
And soul?
This is a wasteland now

We spies
Yeah we slow hands
You put the weights all around yourself
We spies
Oh yeah we slow hands
Killer, for hire you know not yourself

We spies
We slow hands
You put the weights all around yourself
We spies
Oh yeah we slow hands
We retire like nobody else
We spies
Intimate slow hands killer
For hire you know not yourself
We spies
Intimate slow hands
You let the face slap around herself


Pulled heart strings. Death Cab for Cutie- Cath


Cath, she stands with a well-intentioned man
But she can't relax with his hand on the small of her back
And as the flashbulbs burst
She holds a smile like someone would hold a crying child


And soon everybody will ask what became of you
'Cause your heart was dying fast, and you didn't know what to do


Cath, it seems that you live in someone else's dream
In a hand-me-down wedding dress
Where the things that could have been are repressed
But you said your vows, and you closed the door
On so many men who would have loved you more


And soon everybody will ask what became of you
'Cause your heart was dying fast, and you didn't know what to do


The whispers that it won't last roll up and down the pews
But if their hearts were dying that fast,
They'd have done the same as you
And I'd have done the same as you

Death Cab for Cutie-Cath


Pulled heart strings. Peter Bradley Adams- longer I run

Peter Bradley Adams- Longer I run

When my blood runs warm with the warm red wine, I missed the life that I left behind.
And when I hear the sound of the black bird's cry, I know I left in the nick of time.
Well this road I'm on is gonna turn to sand, and leave me lost in a far off land. So let me ride the wind till I don't look back, and forget the life that I almost had.

Winter Sun. Fleet Foxes- Ragged Wood

Fleet Foxes Amaze me!!!!!
beautifully written lyrics.

Come down from the mountain, you have been gone too long
The spring is upon us, follow my only song
Settle down with me by the fire of my yearning
You should come back home, back on your own now

The world is alive now, in and outside our home
You run through the forest, settle before the sun
Darling, I can barely remember you beside me
You should come back home, back on your own now


Greatness. Catherine Wheel- Crank

Catherine Wheel- Crank

Love my superstitious games
Running circles round my brain when I'm left smiling

I love to steal this living steam
My head in someone's dream
I'm tired of sleeping

Call me crank, my idea
Crank, so super
Crank, my conscience clear

I build my canopy of steel
It fulfills my sense of real
A chrome protection

Call me crank, my idea
Crank, so super
Crank, my conscience clear
It's clear

In this small partition, like a prison
Explode time bomb
If you know where I come from

You call me crank, my idea
Crank, so super
Crank, my conscience clear
Please call me crank, it's what I need
Crank, my mind in seed
Crank, my dream complete

Lay down, lay down, lay down

Moon and Stars. Zero 7- In the Waiting Line

This song seemed appropriate.


Do you believe
In what you see
Motionless wheel
Nothing is real
Wasting my time
In the waiting line
Do you believe in
What you see

Nine to five
Living lies
Everyday
Stealing time
Everyone's taking everything they can
Everything they can
Everyone's taking everything they can
Everything they can

Woooohh
Do you believe
In what you feel
It doesn't seem to be anybody else who agrees with me

NorthWest Represent. Ivan and Alyosha- Easy to Love

They are great! Proud to live in such a awesome place. Great music comes from the NW I must say.

When the sky turns black
And we know it will from time to time
We've been through that
And we came out on top because

You're really easy to love
You're really easy to love

Ivan and Alyosha- Easy to love

Moon and Stars. Zola Jesus

I like her voice and music sound.
I love this song!!!! Sea Talk

Cut a rug! Bowie- Let's Dance.

I cut a mean rug to this often. Thanks Bowie.




David Bowie-Let's Dance

Pulled Heart Strings. The Cure- Close Down

Yep this is about how I feel. Good thing I always have my back.

I'm running out of time
I'm out of step and closing down
And never sleep for wanting hours
The empty hours of greed

And uselessly always the need
to feel again the real belief
Of something more than mockery
If only I could fill my heart with love

Beautifully calm. Bon Iver- Re: Stacks

On your back with your racks as the stacks are your load
In the back and the racks and the stacks of your load
In the back with your racks and you're un-stacking your load

This is not the sound of a new man or crispy realization
It's the sound of the unlocking and the lift away
Your love will be
Safe with me

Bon Iver- Re:Stacks

Moon and Stars. Fossil Collective- On and On

I can dig it!

Try to remember how the story goes
I'm by the side of the road - the moon was high the trees all black as coal.
Why did I run where did I go, back at the side of the road I tried to walk a long long time ago
On & On - the silence seems to matter - you are the one
On & On - the silence seems to carry on - you are the
one




Fossil Collective- On and On

Beautifully calm. Fleet Foxes- Mykonos

A beautiful Winter day today.  The sky was incredible, so beautifully calm, makes me take in all that's around me.


When a-walking brother don't you forget
It ain't often that you'll ever find a friend

You go
Wherever you go today
You go today


Fleet Foxes- Mykonos

Hypnotized by the sound. Lost in the Trees- Walk around the Lake

This song is so powerful instrumentally and lyrically.

Late at night
I'll stay up and write
a book about my life...

...so no one would ever make
all of my mistakes

To ease your mind
all it takes
is a walk
'round the lake
is a walk
'round the lake

Moon and Stars. Cat Power

Her voice is beautiful.

Once I wanted to be the greatest
No wind or water fall could STALL me
And then came the rush of the flood
The stars at night turned DEEP to dust

Pulled heart strings. SP, Today

Feeling very low like my heart could die. I have always enjoyed this song, and its irony feels appropriate at the moment, things can't get any worse, or so they say.

On a side note; Like the ice cream man I too would love to quit my job and pass out all the over-manufactured crap shoes that I sale at the moment, cause really who gives a shit! The company I work for sucks!

Smashing Pumpkins= musical genius.

Monday, January 10, 2011

Greatness. SP, Snail

Musical genius that is Smashing Pumpkins. Snail, I can play this song on repeat.
From the great album Gish.

All your seven dreams
Look close, son, and you'll believe
As your things come undone
See you are the only one

Flower, seize the hour I did
I wait
Waiting, waiting for your wake
I'll wait

When you wake up you're all weak
Throwing your life away
Someday, sorry coming home
Sorry snail
What you wait for

Flower, the pain will wash away, away
When the sun shines
Climbs through your window into your bed

When you wake up you're all weak
Throwing your life away
Someday, sorry coming home
Sorry snail
Down in my heart

Flower save the hours
Flower away

What you wait for
Flower chase the sunshine
Flower chase the sunshine
Flower

Back in the day. Billy joel

Back in the day this was my one my favorites song. Ha!



Back in the day. The Simpsons

When I was younger I listened to the tape The Simpson's sing the Blues  way too much. I remember my Mom having company over and she told me not to play the tape while they were there, but I did anyway. So she threw the tape in the garbage. oh memories.

Cut a rug! Röyksopp

Late night dance is in order.
Dance often in the New Year and always!!!!!


Love me some Röyksopp
I am the storm I am the wonder
And the flashlights nightmares
And sudden explosions

I don't know what more to ask for
I was given just one wish

It's about you and the sun
A morning run
The story of my maker
What I have and what I ache for
