These Days - Jackson Browne

Jackson Browne, vocals and acoustic guitar Well I've been out walking I don't do that much talking these days These days-- These days I seem to think a lot About the things that I forgot to do For you And all the times I had the chance to And I had a lover It's so hard to risk another these days These days-- Now if I seem to be afraid To live the life I have made in song Well

Carolyn Sampson I know that my Redeemer liveth

Discovered today on BBC Radio 3. "I know that my redeemer liveth" is taken from the book of Job (and Corinthians). I can imagine Job saying, thanks for the camels and sheep, your Majesty - but it's only worldly wealth. I'd rather have a voice like Carolyn Sampson ... maybe an octave lower, on account of having a beard :)     Lyrics I know that my Redeemer liveth,  and that he shall stand

Robin Trower - About to Begin

A classic hybrid of the mystical and being a bit stoned! Rock music for a mellow mood. Robin Trower - About to Begin video Robin Trower - About to Begin lyrics If you stand in the light, you get the feel of the ride And the music that plays in your ears In your head you can hear, a voice so sweet and clear And the music that plays in your head As it flows up from the ground Taking all

Cat Food - King Crimson

From my large, and sometimes neglected collection of 1970s vinyl LPs. Side 2 track 1 of "In the Wake of Poseidon". King Crimson, particularly Peter Sinfield and Robert Fripp, were adept at expressing social commentary in interesting and varied musical forms, especially rock music. For me, this music captures the frantic and rather aimless mood of supermarkets where the advertising attempts

Love is the Seventh Wave - Sting

A fine song from Sting, apparently expressing his interest in synchronicity and meaning. Love is the Seventh Wave - Sting with lyrics Love Is The Seventh Wave In the empire of the senses You're the queen of all you survey All the cities, all the nation Everything that falls your way, I say There is a deeper world than this that you don't understand There is a deeper world that this tugging

Strange Fruit - Jeff Buckley

I heard this on radio 3 BBC last night. Jeff Buckley was a master of getting into the feeling of a song, both with his acoustic feeling voice and the guitar.   Strange Fruit the lyrics (for the original version) Southern trees bear a strange fruit, Blood on the leaves and blood at the root, Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze, Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

A dangerous character with apparently two sides to his character. How Sufjan Stevens

Tom Waits – Day After Tomorrow

the ultimate lyricist :) Critic Thom Jurek describes "Day After Tomorrow" as "one of the most insightful and understated antiwar songs to have been written in decades. It contains not a hint of banality or sentiment in its folksy articulation. Day after tomorrow lyrics I got your letter Today An' I miss you oh so much here I can't wait To see you all And I'm counting the days dear I
