I'm glad we don't have any snowflakes, or hypersensitive pussy cats here. I can post Kendrick Lamar's music and no one will be offended.  :tellmemore:

Damn, that's a good song.

Any snowflakes here who can't handle it can just run off to their safe place.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

It is, isn't it?  :tellmemore:

Or tweet about it at 3 AM and tell me to apologize for posting it.  :shifty:

Is it too soon to celebrate the weekend?  :unsure:

What is it with this label?  :headscratch:

It's like a magnet! It follows me, or I follow it, I seem to like songs that have that  :airquotes: warning :airquotes: label. Maybe the idea backfired.  :snicker:

Anyways, let's celebrate the weekend!   :dance1:
Yes?

Edit: The video I posted is not there anymore, so I replaced it.

That was cool Mags, wasn't familiar with it French Montana. 8)


With regards to the advisory label, are you surprised as the video was posted by this guy? ;D





I don't know if anyone else here likes the Lumineers, but I've been big fans of theres for 5-6 years and am enjoying there current success...looking forward to seeing them live the next time they visit Detroit.


So if you watch these next three videos from them in the following order they tell a little story, plus the music is awesome!
1) Sleep on the floor
2) Angela
3) Cleopatra

Enjoy!

:lol: I didn't see that.


The Lumineers, they're nice but for some reason the man's voice makes me feel a little bit sad...I don't like that.  :(

That's one of the qualities of their music I like, the sadness or sentimentality it arouses in me...it's as if you were looking at old pictures, or remembering days and people long gone from your life.


I think, and I'm speaking only for myself here, that it is good to occasionally feel a bit of sadness in our lives. The ability of music to bring that out in me is one of the qualities or benefits from it I'm attracted to the most.

It's sort of like curling up on the couch or in your favorite chair when the weather outside is gloomy, and the house is dark and quite...you pull a blanket or afghan tight around you, and stare out the window, or get lost in a book, and in the background is some warm, yet sentimental music playing along with your mood.

Sometimes sadness is how I connect with the world, with others in my life who are no longer with me, but still alive in my memory.

I think that's a part of love.



Or maybe I'm just a gloomy fuck.

Leonard Cohen?

Oh yes, Leonard Cohen, his music and especially his lyrics and poetry match that description perfectly.

Hermes -I had the pleasure of seeing Leonard Cohen the last time he was in Detroit, which was about 5 years ago...show was at the Fox Theatre, and my wife and I had first row seats in the balcony, and it was one of the best shows I've ever attended.

I've always been a big fan of his, yet had never caught one of his shows and I'm so happy that I was able to see the man perform before his passing. I believe it was called the "Old Ideas World Tour".

As soon as tickets became available I bought them, gave them to my wife and told her that she could give these to me for my birthday...she's not a big Cohen fan so I had to take her out for dinner before the show, she simply refers to him as "The Old Man"


After my mother passed away, and when I was going through a bit of rough times I found some solace in his song, "The night comes on"....especially this line, "I wanted the night to go on and on....But she said, go back, go back to the world".

Lyrics
Spoiler: show

I went down to the place where I knew she lay waiting
Under the marble and the snow
I said, Mother I'm frightened, the thunder and the lightning
I'll never come through this alone
She said, I'll be with you, my shawl wrapped around you
My hand on your head when you go
And the night came on, it was very calm
I wanted the night to go on and on
But she said, go back, go back to the world
We were fighting in Egypt when they signed this agreement
That nobody else had to die
There was this terrible sound, my father went down
With a terrible wound in his side
He said, try to go on, take my books, take my gun
Remember, my son, how they lied
And the night comes on, it's very calm
I'd like to pretend that my father was wrong
But you don't want to lie, not to the young
We were locked in this kitchen, I took to religion
And I wondered how long she would stay
I needed so much to have nothing to touch
I've always been greedy that way
But my son and my daughter climbed out of the water
Crying, Papa, you promised to play
And they lead me away to the great surprise
It's Papa, don't peek, Papa, cover your eyes
And they hide, they hide in the world
Now I look for her always, I'm lost in this calling
I'm tied to the threads of some prayer
Saying when will she summon me, when will she come to me
What must I do to prepare?
When she bends to my longing like a willow, like a fountain
She stands in the luminous air
And the night comes on, it's very calm
I lie in her arms and says when I'm gone
I'll be yours, yours for a song
Now the crickets are singing, the vesper bells ringing
The cat's curled asleep in his chair
I'll go down to Bill's Bar, I can make it that far
And I'll see if my friends are still there
Yes, and here's to the few, who forgive what you do
And the fewer who don't even care
And the night comes on, it's very calm
I want to cross over, I want to go home
But she says, Go back, go back to the world





I think this song is my favorite of his, and what a superb duet, simply beautiful.



Lyrics
Spoiler: show
Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women
There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry
There's a lobby with nine hundred windows
There's a tree where the doves go to die
There's a piece that was torn from the morning
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws
Oh I want you, I want you, I want you
On a chair with a dead magazine
In the cave at the tip of the lily
In some hallways where love's never been
On a bed where the moon has been sweating
In a cry filled with footsteps and sand
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take its broken waist in your hand

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
With its very own breath of brandy and Death
Dragging its tail in the sea

There's a concert hall in Vienna
Where your mouth had a thousand reviews
There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking
They've been sentenced to death by the blues
Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture
With a garland of freshly cut tears?
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz it's been dying for years

There's an attic where children are playing
Where I've got to lie down with you soon
In a dream of Hungarian lanterns
In the mist of some sweet afternoon
And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow
All your sheep and your lilies of snow
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
With its "I'll never forget you, you know!"

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz ...

And I'll dance with you in Vienna
I'll be wearing a river's disguise
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thighs
And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
With the photographs there, and the moss
And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty
My cheap violin and my cross
And you'll carry me down on your dancing
To the pools that you lift on your wrist
Oh my love, Oh my love
Take this waltz, take this waltz
It's yours now. It's all that there is.



This part is both erotic and sorrowful at the same time.

And I'll dance with you in Vienna
I'll be wearing a river's disguise
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thighs
And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
With the photographs there, and the moss
And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty
My cheap violin and my cross
And you'll carry me down on your dancing
To the pools that you lift on your wrist
Oh my love, Oh my love
Every taco is hand rolled with exotic Mexican spices by genuine Mayan Virgins.
