Lets Rock...

Once in a lifetime - Talking Heads

And you may find yourself 
Living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself 
In another part of the world
And you may find yourself 
Behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house
With a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, well
How did I get here?

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

Same as it ever was

Water dissolving and water removing
There is water at the bottom of the ocean
Under the water, carry the water
Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again in the silent water
Under the rocks, and stones there is water underground

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

And you may ask yourself
What is that beautiful house?
And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go to?
And you may ask yourself
Am I right? Am I wrong?
And you may say yourself, "My God! What have I done?"

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again in to the silent water
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

Same as it ever was
Look where my hand was
Time isn't holding up
Time isn't after us
Same as it ever was

Letting the days go by (same as it ever was)
Letting the days go by (same as it ever was)
Once in a lifetime 
Letting the days go by

That was the first thing on my mind when Mr C walked up to Buella's.

Here's one for Tammy, from the same album.  Also contains some outstanding guitar work from Adrian Belew:

The Great Curve

Sometimes the world has a load of questions
Seems like the world knows nothing at all
The world is near but it's out of reach
Some people touch it...but they can't hold on.

She is moving to describe the world
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
She has messages for everyone
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
She is moving by remote control
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
Hands that move her are invisible
Night must fall now-darker, darker.

The world has a way of looking at people
Sometimes it seems that the world is wrong
She loves the world, and all the people in it
She shakes 'em up when she start to walk.

She is only party human being
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
She defines the possibilities
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
Holding on for an Eternity
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
Gone...ending without finishing
Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so

The world moves on a woman's hips
The world moves and it swivels and bops
The world moves on a woman's hips
The world moves and it bounces and hops
A world of light...she's gonna open our eyes up
A world of light...she's gonna open our eyes up
She's gonna hold/it move/it hold it/move it hold/it move it hold/
it move it
A world of light...she's gonna open out eyes up

She is moving to describe the world
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
She has messages for everyone
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
She is moving by remote control
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
Hands that move her are invisible
Night must fall now-darker, darker.

Divine, to define, she is moving to define, so say so
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
She...has got to move the world...to move the world...to move the world

A world of light...she's gonna open our eyes up
A world of light...she's gonna open our eyes up
She's gonna hold it move it hold it move it 
Hold it move it hold it move it
A world of light...she's gonna open out eyes up

Want to define...so say so, so say so
Divine to define, she is moving to define, so say so, so say so
Night must fall now-darker, darker.
She...has got to move the world...to move the world...to move the world

Here's one for Big Ed, from Fear of Music:

Paper

Hold the paper up to the light
(some rays pass right through)
Expose yourself out there for a minute
(some rays pass right through)

Take a little rest when the rays pass through
Take a little time off when the rays pass through

Go ahead and mess it up...Go ahead and tie it up
In a long distance telephone call

Hold on to that paper
Hold on to that paper
Hold on because it's been taken care of
Hold on to that paper

See if you can fit it on the paper
See if you can get it on the paper
See if you can fit it on the paper
See if you can get it on the paper

Had a love affair but it was only paper
(some rays they pass right through)
Had a lot of fun, could have been a lot better
(some rays they pass right through)

Take a little consideration, take every combination
Take a few weeks off, make it tighter, tighter
But it was never, it was never written down
Still might be a chance that it might work out (if you)

Hold on to that paper
Hold on to that paper
Hold on because it'll be taken care of
Hold on to that paper

Don't think I can fit it on the paper
Don't think I can get it on the paper
Go ahead and rip up, rip up the paper
Go ahead and tear up, tear up the paper

Holy cow! So Brian Eno ties it all together?? (Assuming he was involved in that album.)

I saw David Byrne give a lecture outlining the thesis of the book he put out a few years ago. It was.... rather disappointing. I was much happier seeing him perform on stage. David Lynch, on the other hand, can give a great Ted Talk!

Tangent, Eno shares a creative philosophy with David: "Do something creative with an accident."

One - possibly - for Annie, should she reappear.  In fact, it's appropriate for the entire series.  Maybe.  Anyhow it's a great performance so shut up.

Out Of Time

You don't know what's going on,
You've been away for far too long
You can't come back and think you are still mine

You're out of touch my baby
My poor old fashioned baby
I said baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Yes you are left out, yes, you are
I said you're left out of there without a doubt
'cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

You thought you was a clever girl
Giving up your social world
But you can't come back and be the first in line, oh yeah
You're obsolete, my baby
My poor unfaithful baby
I said baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Yes, you are left out, yes, you are
I said you're left out of there without a doubt
'cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Yes you are -you`re left out, yes, you are
I said you're left out, out of there without a doubt
'cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
(Is everybody ready)
Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
You thought you was a clever girl
(Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time)
You're livin' in that social world
(Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time)
Yes you are right now

Here's one that could prove to be yrev very appropriate soon.  Sacrilege to say, but I prefer Bowie's cover (and, according to some sources, so did Mr Engels himself).  Anyhow, for the few who haven't heard it, the original by Scott Walker

Nite Flights

 

There's no hold
The moving 
Has come through
The danger
Brushing you
Turns its face
Into the heat
And runs
The tunnels
It's so cold
The dark
Dug up
By dogs
The stitches
Torn and broke
The raw meat fist
You choke
Has hit
The bloodlite
Glass traps
Open and close
On night flights
Broken necks
Feather weights
Press the walls
Be my love
We will be gods
On night flights
With
Only one promise
Only one way
To fall

.. for all the hosts...

I can feel, I can tell
I can feel, I can tell, I can see
Something is changing
To me change is no stranger

I don't run, I don't hide
I don't run, I don't hide, I don't fight
What fate arranges
I don't think about danger

If it was meant for me
I'd know just where to go
But if I can take it slow
Then I might be in control

In the back of my head
In the back of my head there is doubt
There is suspicion
With my new fascination

I don't know what it is
I don't know what it is, you might say
It's intuition
It's a true indication

I should trust myself
I should beware of this
But it's like a stranger's kiss
And somehow I can't resist

I can feel my will slip away
From a strange influenza
I can feel my mind slip away
Under your influenza

I can feel my heart slip away
Under your influenza
There's a part of my heart
There's a part of my heart that cries out

Please go no further
I just can't take the pressure
So I try to resist
So I try to resist and my heart

Tells me don't bother
That this pain is a pleasure
If I were someone else
I wouldn't disagree

But it's always hard to see
When something's controlling me

Here's one for James Hurley!

 

Just you
And I
Just You
And I
Together forever
In love
Just you (just you)
And I (and I)
Just You (Just you)
And I (And I)
Together forever
In love
In love
We go strolling together
In love
We go strolling forever
Oh oh oh
Just you (just you)
And I (and I)
Just you (just you) And I (and I)
Together forever
In Love
Just you
And I
Just you
And I

This is for Leland/Bob... because he loves to leave that record sounding even when it's over .... and kill of course

Disco eterno - Soda Stereo

(the lyrics are in spanish but I did the translation)

 

I went out,

out of context

practice,

doesn't make it perfect

Put an endless record

and move in litmus

 

A spirit

sometimes secure, sometimes uncertain

I wanna discover 

why this desire grows

 

Between the two of us

a meridian passes

Latitude of parallel lives

Opening a stereo dream

creating the dimension

 

without conceal

I'm undressing with every sound

I wanna discover 

why this desire grows

 

A spirit

sometimes secure, sometimes uncertain

I wanna discover 

why this desire grows

"Bill"

Bill was a man

Who grew too big

It didn't matter what he did

The girls would always run away

When everybody laughs at you

It can be humiliating

 

Billy likes a

Cute little girl

They are lovers

We can tell

Kisses on the mouth

Holding hands 'n' all

Look into their eyes...

 

Sneaking off together

Running to the woods

Swimming in the river

Cooking up some food

Making up religions

Dropping out of school

Laughing through the summertime

Never meant to hurt nobody

 

Angel of God

Take me along

Happy days

Quiet life

We are not alone...

 

He bought a gun

And she fixed her dress

"I'm not afraid of Jesus Christ

Who cares about the price we pay"

It's our little secret

And we're never, never, never going

 

Angel of God

Take me along

Happy days

Quiet life

We are not alone...
