MUSIC

th_music-notesI grew up with schmaltzy music (on reflection). As a kid I knew no better. I knew what was good because those songs made me feel good. As I got sophisticated and learned how and what to appreciate and of course what was the fashion of the time, I started to narrow my tastes. You couldn’t like ABBA for example, yet, secretly we all did, even those most cool of us. The music written and performed back then came from the heart. Most musicians were just starting to see that there was more to music than music.

Everyone wanted a piece of the cake…and everyone got their cake. Musicians in those days wrote and played with a passion that is unseen today. As in most fields (sport, academia, politics and business) the fun got taken out. Most people took on careers with the view of making a shit load of dosh. No problemo! …except the passion died dinit. Eventually, most if not all of these lifestyles became boring. They had no passion association. The only thing that resembled any excitement was having the money to live. Live to work was the catch-cry. Something was lost.discoballOver time and without realising what the **** was going on, we all found ourselves in a quagmire of loneliness, a feeling there was more to life than the drudgeries that we experienced.  We would retrospect back to those times when a family was together and life wasn’t complicated…and the music sounded wonderful.
Why did the music sound wonderful? Was it because the music was wonderful or was there another aspect to it..

Firstly, we were all close to each other. We couldn’t be like this if we didn’t feel good within ourselves. The food was good. The pay was good. The music was good. Everything about life was good. The musicians felt good and wrote and performed good music. We all felt good and responded accordingly. The loop of life. Give unto others etc…th_thmusicThese day, quite the opposite is occurring. Diametrically opposed. People hate work for the most part. I mean…they have to say they love work or it will become hard to get up each day, sit at their computers writing Microsoft pie charts. People don’t have choices and work as a necessity. FAIL!

But let me pose this question. If you had the resources to do whatever you wanted to do…would you be at work? I don’t think so. Most people have a good work ethic. All of us need to have a productive life. Producing, giving and receiving (PGR). The choices are limiting. We work for some organisation tirelessly producing meaningless crud for meaningless reasons. They say it benefits society but I am yet to see the evidence. hphonesAdding a profit stuffs up this three legged stool (PGR) and we fall over. Profit is a filthy word. I mean…how can BigBiz add 300-400%+ to goods and services because they can and think it has no effect? It does! Usually where there are profits…there are deficits.

Greed ultimately doesn’t serve humanity, only the top 1%…greed begets greed adinfinitum/adnauseum. This darkness is everywhere. Consumer purchasing has dropped as a direct revolt against producing useless crap that hoards inside our houses and minds. I am not being negative just observing what is out there…th_rapmusicHow much technology is enough…yes it’s addictive…and yes its a communication tool…and yes its the new meditative device, so we numb ourselves to the thought that we just bought a second and third laptop small enough for any situation. Oh I could go on and on but…back to the music.

I don’t like to go back to the past and reminisce and prefer to stay in the present moment.
The music of today…apart from a few artists is spewed out on a conveyor belt. Musical fodder for the masses; mind numbing crud. Having said that, I could name a dozen or so artists that hail as the best in their field, producing wonderfully creative words and music coupled with stunning dance routines and video clips. Below are songs that I have heard that knock me out. Some, yes from the past that are timeless.


santanaWell let me just say that one of my favorite bands to listen to…meaning each and every track kicks arse…is the album Santana 3.  It represents me more than any other album. I have other albums that have a good song here and there but none that I can put on and play each song with guitars screeching out hurtful notes that make my hairs stand on end. I think it is the Latin American feel. I have an affinity to this part of the world and often think that I was reincarnated from there in my past life.

    Oh, no.

    Yeah
    Ya’ll know what it is
    Katy Perry
    Juicy J, aha.
    Let’s rage

    [Katy Perry:]
    I knew you were
    You were gonna come to me
    And here you are
    But you better choose carefully
    ‘Cause I, I’m capable of anything
    Of anything and everything

    Make me your Aphrodite
    Make me your one and only
    But don’t make me your enemy, your enemy, your enemy

    So you wanna play with magic
    Boy, you should know what you’re falling for
    Baby do you dare to do this?
    Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse
    Are you ready for, ready for
    A perfect storm, perfect storm
    Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine
    There’s no going back

    Mark my words
    This love will make you levitate
    Like a bird
    Like a bird without a cage
    But down to earth
    If you choose to walk away, don’t walk away

    It’s in the palm of your hand now baby
    It’s a yes or no, no maybe
    So just be sure before you give it all to me
    All to me, give it all to me

    So you wanna play with magic
    Boy, you should know what you’re falling for
    Baby do you dare to do this?
    Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse
    Are you ready for, ready for
    A perfect storm, perfect storm
    Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine (love trippin’)
    There’s no going back

    [Juicy J – Rap Verse:]
    Uh
    She’s a beast
    I call her Karma (come back)
    She eats your heart out
    Like Jeffrey Dahmer (woo)
    Be careful
    Try not to lead her on
    Shorty’s heart is on steroids
    Cause her love is so strong
    You may fall in love
    When you meet her
    If you get the chance you better keep her
    She’s sweet as pie but if you break her heart
    She’ll turn cold as a freezer
    That fairy tale ending with a knight in shining armor
    She can be my Sleeping Beauty
    I’m gon’ put her in a coma
    Woo!
    Damn I think I love her
    Shorty so bad, I’m sprung and I don’t care
    She ride me like a roller coaster
    Turned the bedroom into a fair (a fair!)
    Her love is like a drug
    I was tryna hit it and quit it
    But lil’ mama so dope
    I messed around and got addicted

    [Katy Perry:]
    So you wanna play with magic
    Boy, you should know what you’re falling for (you should know)
    Baby do you dare to do this?

    “Human”

    I can hold my breath
    I can bite my tongue
    I can stay awake for days
    If that’s what you want
    Be your number one

    I can fake a smile
    I can force a laugh
    I can dance and play the part
    If that’s what you ask
    Give you all I am

    I can do it
    I can do it
    I can do it

    But I’m only human
    And I bleed when I fall down
    I’m only human
    And I crash and I break down
    Your words in my head, knives in my heart
    You build me up and then I fall apart
    ‘Cause I’m only human

    I can turn it on
    Be a good machine
    I can hold the weight of worlds
    If that’s what you need
    Be your everything

    I can do it
    I can do it
    I’ll get through it

    But I’m only human
    And I bleed when I fall down
    I’m only human
    And I crash and I break down
    Your words in my head, knives in my heart
    You build me up and then I fall apart
    ‘Cause I’m only human

    I’m only human
    I’m only human
    Just a little human

    I can take so much
    ‘Til I’ve had enough

    ‘Cause I’m only human
    And I bleed when I fall down
    I’m only human
    And I crash and I break down
    Your words in my head, knives in my heart
    You build me up and then I fall apart
    ‘Cause I’m only human

  5. “Imagine”

    Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today…

    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will live as one</h3

    When the night has come
    And the land is dark

    Just as long as you stand, stand by me

    And darling, darling stand by me
    Oh, now, now, stand by me
    Stand by me, stand by me

    If the sky that we look upon
    Should tumble and fall
    And the mountain should crumble to the sea
    I won’t cry, I won’t cry
    No I won’t shed a tear
    Just as long as you stand, stand by me

    And darling, darling stand by me
    Oh, stand by me

  7. “Hey Jude”

    Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
    Take a sad song and make it better
    Remember to let her into your heart
    Then you can start to make it better

    Hey Jude, don’t be afraid
    You were made to go out and get her
    The minute you let her under your skin
    Then you begin to make it better

    And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain
    Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders
    For well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool
    By making his world a little colder
    Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

    Hey Jude, don’t let me down
    You have found her, now go and get her
    Remember to let her into your heart
    Then you can start to make it better

    So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin
    You’re waiting for someone to perform with
    And don’t you know that it’s just you, hey Jude, you’ll do
    The movement you need is on your shoulder
    Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah yeah

    Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
    Take a sad song and make it better
    Remember to let her under your skin
    Then you’ll begin to make it

    Afraid to lose control
    And caught up in this world

    I think I’ve thought myself to death

    I was born without this fear
    Now only this seems clear

    Whoa, come with me now

    I think with my heart and I move with my head
    I open my mouth and it’s something I’ve read
    I stood at this door before, I’m told
    But a part of me knows that I’m growing too old

    Confused what I thought with something I felt
    Confuse what I feel with something that’s real
    I tried to sell my soul last night
    Funny, he wouldn’t even take a bite

    Far away
    I heard him say (Come with me now)
    Don’t delay
    I heard him say (Come with me now)

    Far away

  9. “Pompeii”

    Eh-eh-o eh-o

    I was left to my own devices
    Many days fell away with nothing to show

    And the walls kept tumbling down
    In the city that we love
    Great clouds roll over the hills
    Bringing darkness from above

    But if you close your eyes,
    Does it almost feel like
    Nothing changed at all?
    And if you close your eyes,
    Does it almost feel like
    You’ve been here before?
    How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
    How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

  10. “Wake Me Up”

    Feeling my way through the darkness
    Guided by a beating heart
    I can’t tell where the journey will end
    But I know where to start

    They tell me I’m too young to understand
    They say I’m caught up in a dream
    Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes
    Well that’s fine by me

    [2x]
    So wake me up when it’s all over
    When I’m wiser and I’m older
    All this time I was finding myself
    And I didn’t know I was lost

    I tried carrying the weight of the world
    But I only have two hands
    Hope I get the chance to travel the world
    But I don’t have any plans

    Wish that I could stay forever this young
    Not afraid to close my eyes
    Life’s a game made for everyone
    And love is the prize

    [2x]
    So wake me up when it’s all over
    When I’m wiser and I’m older
    All this time I was finding myself
    And I didn’t know I was lost

    Didn’t know I was lost
    I didn’t know I was lost
    I didn’t know I was lost
    I didn’t know (didn’t know, didn’t know)
