The Gun Of Bavaria

What are u listening to right now?

Recommended Posts

Arcade Fire, 'Neon Bible'. If you loved 'Funeral', check it. That band freakin' rules. I love the singer. A 6'5" chic borderline doofus. I don't know, there's something attractively cool and endearing about dorks, what can I say. But as to music in general, yes, the words matter. A lot.

EDIT: WAIT!

Win Butler. See? A chic borderline doofus. :)

The Pogues. On the of Best. Bands. Ever. The song-writing is stellar, the music is friggin' great. 'Fairytale of New York', a haunting and lovely song. One of my favorites.

How is Shane McGowan even ALIVE?! He also has the worst teeth of any human being that's ever walked the earth.

'Sayonara'

"She kissed me softly on the lips

She took my hand without a sound

This was our happy ever after

So motherf*cker kiss the ground!

She had a red, red scarf around her neck

Her eyes were green, her hair was black

She had a red, red scarf around her neck

Her eyes were green, her hair was black!

Ooh she gave me mekong whiskey

Ooh she gave me hong kong flu

Ooh she gave me mekong whiskey

Put me on a breeze to katmandu..."

Great stuff.

'Simple', by K.D. Lang. What a lovely, heart-wrenching song.

Flawless light in a darkening air alone...and shining there

Love will not elude you, love is simple

I worship this tenacity and the beautiful struggle we're in

Love will not elude us, love is simple

Be sure to know that all in love is ours

And love, as a philosophy is simple

I am calm in oblivion

Calm, as I ever have been

Love will not elude me, love is simple

Be sure to know that all in love

is ours...

is ours...

That all in love is ours

And love, as a philosophy is simple...

And ours...

EDIT:

Now 'Love's Great Ocean' came on. Good stuff.

"Cherry, oh" - Eric Donaldson

Cherry, oh, Cherry oh, baby,

Don't you know I'm in need of thee?

If you don't believe it's true,

What have you left me to do?

So long I've been waiting,

For you to come right in

And now that we are together,

Please make my joy run over!

Cherry, oh, Cherry, oh, baby,

Don't you know I'm in love with you?

If you don't believe I do,

Then why don't you try me?

I'm never gonna let you down,

Never make you wear no frown.

If you say you love me madly,

Then I will receive you gladly.

Cherry, oh, Cherry, oh, baby,

Don't you know I'm in love with you?

If you don't believe I do,

Then why don't you try me?

I'm never gonna let you down,

Never make you wear no frown.

If you say you love me madly,

Then why do you treat me badly?

More Dinah Washington. She's a beautiful voice. Not a typo - she's a beautiful voice. Google her. You won't be disappointed.

Lightness - Death Cab For Cutie

I didn't care for them that much years ago, but they grew on me and I really like them now. I saw them in NYC early last October. It was a lot of fun.

EDIT: Feh, link didn't work.

'60 Miles An Hour' - New Order. I LOVE that song. Rocking it pushing a vacuum cleaner at the same time.

Best Beatles cover ever.  Haha, I found this album in the early '80s at a rummage sale. Holy Hell, we were shrieking.  It got tossed years ago, but trust me, it's horrifically awesome. I can't even believe that it's actually OUT THERE. I didn't have the patience to get past the ukulele and string arrangements on other tracks before collapsing in a pile of larfs.

The man was amazing beyond words. He didn't die at 100, though, but he died on Lincoln's B-day. Fun fact.
