Another Classic Pavement Hit!!!!!!!!

Pavement
Here

I was dressed for success
But success it never comes
And I'm the only one who laughs
At your jokes when they are so bad
And your jokes are always bad
But they're not as bad as this

Come join us in a prayer
We'll be waiting waiting where
Everything's ending here

And all the sterile striking it defends
An empty dock you cast away
And rain upon your forehead
Where the mist's for hire if it's just too clear
Let's spend our last quarterstance randomly
Go down to the outlet once again

Painted portraits of minions & slaves
Crotch mavens and one night plays
Are they the only ones who laugh'
At the jokes when they are so bad
And the jokes they're always bad
But they're not as bad as this

Come join us in a prayer
We'll be waiting waiting where
Everything's ending here

And all the spanish candles unsold
Away have gone to this
And a run-on piece of mount on
Trembles, shivers, runs down the freeway
I guess she spent her last quarter randomly
I guess a guess is the best I'll do
Last time last time
Was the best time

New band I just heard for the first time last night: The Ladies and Gentlemen.

They were opening at the Matthew Good concert that I was at.

Both bands have songs on their website that you can listen to.

You could also look beyond your nose and realise the question had been answered.

I appreciate the effort nonetheless though.

Time for another great Ween Hit

Ween
From the Album: The Pod
" Sorry Charlie"

Things didn't work out the way you had planned it.
Things fell apart at the seams.
(???)

And now you're cold and sleepy.
Chirst (?), how did it come to this?
Hold on to those you thought were your loved ones
They'll be the ones you miss.

And now you're standing at the station
Tryin' to take what I ain't got to give.
Oh and I'm so sorry Charlie
I've got my own life to live

Just call your friends at college
Wonder why you didn't stay
And my boss is coming down soon Chuck
He's drunk so you can't stay
No, you can't stay

You did nothing to deserve this
God didn't treat you swell
Oh it all slipped through your fingers
and it all seems so unfair

And your girlfriend, she's in high school
She says she loves you a lot
Oh no, she can't support you
So you better sell more pot

And now you're standing at the station
Tryin' to take what I ain't got to give.
Oh and I'm so sorry Charlie
I've got my own life to live

So you just call your friends at college
Wonder why you didn't stay
And my boss is coming down soon Chuck
He's drunk and you can't stay
No, you can't stay
Sorry Charlie. Sorry Charlie. Oww!

And here's an oldie from the Traveling Wilburys!!

Traveling Wilburys
End Of The Line

(Well it's alright)
Ridin' around in the breeze.
If you live the life you please.
Doing the best you can.
As long as you lend a hand.

You can sit around and wait for the phone to ring.
Waiting for someone to tell you everything.
Sit around and wonder what tomorrow will bring.
Maybe a diamond ring.

(Well it's alright)
Even if they say you're wrong.
Sometimes you've gotta be strong.
As long as you've got someone to lay.
Every day is just one day.

Maybe somewhere down the road away.
You'll think of me and wonder where I am these days.
Maybe somewhere down the road when someone plays,
Purple Haze.

(Well it's alright)
Even when push comes to shove.
If you got someone to love.
Everything will work out fine.
We're going to the end of the line.

Don't have to be ashamed of the kind of car I drive.
I'm just glad to be here, happy to be alive.
It don't matter if you're by my side. I'm satisfied.

(Well it's alright)
Even if you're old and grey.
You still got something to say.
Remember to live and let live.
The best you can do is forgive.
Ridin' around in the breeze.
If you live the life you please.
Even if the sun don't shine.
We're going to the end of the line!

More awesome lyrics.

She's Leaving Home
The Beatles


Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching her handkerchief
Quietly tunring the backdoor key
Stepping outside she is free

She (We gave her most of our lives)
Is leaving (Sacrificed most of our lives)
Home (We gave her everything money could buy)
She's leaving home after living alone
For so many years
Bye bye

Father snores as his wife gets into her dressing gown
Picks up the letter that's lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down and cries to her husband
Daddy our baby's gone
Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly?
How could she do this to me?

She (We never though of ourselves)
Is leaving (Never a thought for ourselves)
Home (We struggled hard all our lives to get by)
She's leaving home after living alone
For so many years
Bye bye

Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the motor trade

She (What did we do that was wrong)
Is having (We didn't know it was wrong)
Fun (Fun is the one thing that money can't buy)
Something inside that was always denied
For so many years
Bye bye

She's leaving home
Bye bye

Here's the opening track to Tom Waits' "Bone Machine", which I consider to be one of his best albums. Definately check it out with such tracks as Dirt in the Ground, Who Are You?, The Ocean Doesn't Want Me, Little Rain, Whistle Down the Wind, Black Wings, Goin' Out West and Murder in the Red Bard.

Tom Waits
"Earth Died Screaming"
Bone Machine

Rudy's on the midway and Jacob's in the hole
The monkey's on the ladder, the devil shovels coal
With crows as big as airplanes, the lion has three heads
And someone will eat the skin that he sheds

Well, the earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming
Well, the earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming
Dreaming of you

Well, hell doesn't want you and heaven is full
Bring me some water, put it in this skull
I walk between the raindrops, I wait in Bug House Square
And the army ants, they leave nothin' but the bones

And the earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming
Well, the earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming
Well, the earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming
Dreaming of you

There was thunder, there was lightning, then the stars went out
And the moon fell from the sky, it rained mackerel, it rained trout
And the great day of wrath has come, and here's mud in your big red eye
And the poker's in the fire and the locusts take the sky

Well, the earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming
Well, the earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming
Well, the earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming
Dreaming of you

Hmm, how about Fiona Apple? Laugh all you want, I think she's awesome.

Never Is A Promise / Fiona Apple

You'll never see -- the courage I know
Its colors' richness won't appear within your view
I'll never glow -- the way that you glow
Your presence dominates the judgements made on you

But as the scenery grows, I see in different lights
The shades and shadows undulate in my perception
My feelings swell and stretch, I see from greater heights
I understand what I am still too proud to mention -- to you

You'll say you understand, but you don't understand
You'll say you'd never give up seeing eye to eye
But never is a promise, and you can't afford to lie

You'll never touch -- these things that I hold
The skin of my emotions lies beneath my own
You'll never feel the heat of this soul
My fever burns me deeper than I've ever shown -- to you

You'll say, Don't fear your dreams, its easier than it seems
You'll say you'd never let me fall from hopes so high
But never is a promise and you can't afford to lie

You'll never live the life that I live
I'll never live the life that wakes me in the night
You'll never hear the message I give
You'll say it looks as though I might give up this fight

But as the scenery grows, I see in different lights
The shades and shadows undulate in my perception
My feelings swell and stretch, I see from greater heights
I realize what I am now too smart to mention -- to you

You'll say you understand, you'll never understand
I'll say I'll never wake up knowing how or why
I don't know what to believe in, you don't know who I am
You'll say I need appeasing when I start to cry
But never is a promise and I'll never need a lie

Here's one of my favorite Bob Dylan songs - great lyrics

Bob Dylan
Black Diamond Bay

Up on the white veranda
She wears a necktie and a Panama hat.
Her passport shows a face from
Another time and place
She looks nothin' like that.
And all the remnants of her recent past
Are scattered in the wild wind.
She walks across the marble floor
Where a voice from the gambling room is callin' her to come on in.
She smiles, walks the other way
As the last ship sails and the moon fades away
From Black Diamond Bay.

As the mornin' light breaks open, the Greek comes down
And he asks for a rope and a pen that will write.
"Pardon, monsieur," the desk clerk says,
Carefully removes his fez,
"Am I hearin' you right?"
And as the yellow fog is liftin'
The Greek is quickly headin' for the second floor.
She passes him on the spiral staircase
Thinkin' he's the Soviet Ambassador,
She starts to speak, but he walks away
As the storm clouds rise and the palm branches sway
On Black Diamond Bay.

A soldier sits beneath the fan
Doin' business with a tiny man who sells him a ring.
Lightning strikes, the lights blow out.
The desk clerk wakes and begins to shout,
"Can you see anything?"
Then the Greek appears on the second floor
In his bare feet with a rope around his neck,
While a loser in the gambling room lights up a candle,
Says, "Open up another deck."
But the dealer says, "Attendez-vous, s'il vous plait,''
As the rain beats down and the cranes fly away
From Black Diamond Bay.

The desk clerk heard the woman laugh
As he looked around the aftermath and the soldier got tough.
He tried to grab the woman's hand,
Said, "Here's a ring, it cost a grand."
She said, "That ain't enough."
Then she ran upstairs to pack her bags
While a horse-drawn taxi waited at the curb.
She passed the door that the Greek had locked,
Where a handwritten sign read, "Do Not Disturb."
She knocked upon it anyway
As the sun went down and the music did play
On Black Diamond Bay.

"I've got to talk to someone quick!"
But the Greek said, "Go away," and he kicked the chair to the floor.
He hung there from the chandelier.
She cried, "Help, there's danger near
Please open up the door!"
Then the volcano erupted
And the lava flowed down from the mountain high above.
The soldier and the tiny man were crouched in the corner
Thinking of forbidden love.
But the desk clerk said, "It happens every day,"
As the stars fell down and the fields burned away
On Black Diamond Bay.

As the island slowly sank
The loser finally broke the bank in the gambling room.
The dealer said, "It's too late now.
You can take your money, but I don't know how
You'll spend it in the tomb."
The tiny man bit the soldier's ear
As the floor caved in and the boiler in the basement blew,
While she's out on the balcony, where a stranger tells her,
"My darling, je vous aime beaucoup."
She sheds a tear and then begins to pray
As the fire burns on and the smoke drifts away
From Black Diamond Bay.

I was sittin' home alone one night in L.A.,
Watchin' old Cronkite on the seven o'clock news.
It seems there was an earthquake that
Left nothin' but a Panama hat
And a pair of old Greek shoes.
Didn't seem like much was happenin',
So I turned it off and went to grab another beer.
Seems like every time you turn around
There's another hard-luck story that you're gonna hear
And there's really nothin' anyone can say
And I never did plan to go anyway
To Black Diamond Bay.

And here's my favorite Neil Young song!

Neil Young
Without Rings

Someone's hanging out,
We can't forget about.
Things that people do
when they're free.
Like visitors from space,
It's hard to find a place,
To blend in and go unrecognized.

I'm waiting for a sign,
I'm standing on the road,
My mind outstretched to you.
I'm picking something up,
I'm letting something go,
Like a dog I'm fetching
this for you.

Pictures in mind:
Rows of poppy fields,
Harmony entwined,
Changing gears that grind.
Pictures in my mind.

Pictures in my brain:
Electrical energy,
Fighting drugs with pain,
There's a war inside.
Pictures in my brain.

I'm looking for a job,
I don't know what I'm doing,
My software's
not compatible with you.
But this I can't deny,
I know that you can fly,
'Cause I'm here
on the ground without you.

Angel without wings,
Owner without things,
Sharpshooter
without rings around you.
The road we used to ride,
Together side by side
Has flowers pushing
through the dotted line.

Here's a classic from Velvet Underground

Velvet Underground
New Age

Can I have your autograph?
he said to the fat blond actress
You know, I've seen every movie you've been in
from "Pass of Pain" to "Duels of Glory"
And when you kissed Robert Mitchum
Gee, but I thought you'd never catch him
You're over the hill right now, and you're looking for love
You're over the hill right now, and you're looking for love
I'll come running to you, honey, when you want me
I'll come running to you, honey, when you want me

Can I have your autograph?
he said to the fat blond actress
You know, I know everything you've done
Anyway, I hate divorces
To the left is a marble shower
It was fun even for an hour, but
You're over the hill right now, and you're looking for love
You're over the hill right now, and you're looking for love
I'll come running to you, honey, when you want me
I'll come running to you, honey, when you want me

Something's got a hold on me and I don't know what
Something's got a hold on me and I don't know what
It's the beginning of a new age...

Next up, I know some of you hate Bright Eyes, but Conor Oberst is in another band that's more rockin, called Deseparecidos. Here's a cool song from it.

Desaparecidos
Happiest Place on Earth

I want to pledge allegiance to the country where I live
I don't want to be ashamed to be American
But opportunity no, it don't exist
It's the opiate of the populace
We need some harder sht now
The truth is getting around
And each public school is a halfway house
Where the huddled masses sober up and up enough There's not enough to fatten the cows
And feed all of us
It's just a rationing of luck
What can't be bought gets raffled off
Oh God good God shed greed on thee
Your shining sea turned a dirty green
From the industry off the shores of New Jersey
I got a letter from the army
So I think that I'll enlist
I'm not brave or proud of nothing
I just want to kill something
Too bad that now-a-days you just point and click Swing low satellite
Hot white chariot
In the computer's blue glare
The bombs burst in the air
There was a city once now nothing is there
Our freedom comes at their expense
It makes sense does it dollars and centers
They're stretching barbed wire across the picket fence
That is surrounding your housing development
Just in case you lack the confidence
Oh God my God give strength to thee
These amber waves purple majesty
Are nothing but backdrops for Disney
We'll look up close
It is superimposed on a blank blue screen
It is fantasy fucking magical
The dreams floats like a chemical
Through each snapped synapse our television past That is beautiful no more no more

I go through them to see which bands. I've actually gone out and bought and listened to all the bands Carmius listed. They're pretty good. I just see which members here match my taste and then try the new music out. Why don't you post a song, Cloud?

Great album, but I much prefer Who Loves the Sun, Sweet Jane, Rock and Roll, O Sweet Nothin' and Cool It Down over this one

And I also read the lyrics, if I have the time. I've set a bunch up for downloads, but not all have gone through.

There's a version of New Age on their live album Live at Max's, that makes the song a million times better. The whole live album is really good - which is a rare thing for live albums. Usually they suck. They have so many great songs.

Just to annoy Cloud I'm gonna post some lyrics.

Wolf Notes - The Fiery Furnaces

Pick up your trumpet.
Your plastic pretend trumpet.
Blow me your horn today.

Pick up your tambourine.
Your Fisher Price My First Tamborine.
Jingle and jangle today.

Plug in your keyboard.
Your symphonic sound samba Samsung.
Pick out a tune today.

Turn off your radio.
Shut away your stereo.
Put away your discman.
And play me a tune today!

I rub the peg-paste and the chalk in.
Scrape and the wolf-notes start to grrr.
I did a donkeys back with fixed frog.
And I martellato the slur.

Through an open wound you watch the guts go.
Cut cross the cat line, thick and thin.
All overspun and resigned-up a slow stick thrills me, thrills me.
She varnished all around her F-holes.
Blue tape take aim, but the arms are too low.

Legato look and sawing detache.
But you want to bust your bow.
Bow down and wipe off, snap the case closed.
Madame Professor says "Well done"

But an electric stroboscopic frequency meterd say otherwise.

I scratch harmonicas in half-position.
I pinch my e-string, rat-a-tat.
I double stop on any open string.
Screw my G on up to B-flat.

Hm. I think the easiest thing to call it is just plain indie rock. If I wanted to get technical it'd probably be post-post-ironic electronic indie jangle pop rock or some crappy genre like that. Genres are a pretty stupid concept.

indie rock will be fine. Is the singer male? female? clear voice? scratchy voice? clean guitar sound, or scratchy guitar sound?

How many good songs would you say they've written?

Alright, it's nearly the time of year for this song, so I figure I better bring it out:

Tom Waits
Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis
from the album "Blue Valentine"

Hey Charlie, I'm pregnant and living on 9th Street
Right above a dirty bookstore off Euclid Avenue
And I stopped takin' dope and I quit drinkin' whiskey
And my old man plays the trombone and works out at the track

He says that he loves me, even though it's not his baby
He says that he'll raise him up like he would his own son
And he gave me a ring that was worn by his mother
And he takes me out dancin' every Saturday night

And hey Charlie, I think about you everytime I pass a fillin' station
On account of all the grease you used to wear in your hair
And I still have that record of Little Anthony and the Imperials
But someone stole my record player, now how do you like that?

Hey Charlie, I almost went crazy after Mario got busted
I went back to Omaha to live with my folks
But everyone I used to know was either dead or in prison
So I came back to Minneapolis, this time I think I'm gonna stay

Hey Charlie, I think I'm happy for the first time since my accident
And I wish I had all the money we used to spend on dope
I'd buy me a used car lot and I wouldn't sell any of 'em
I'd just drive a different car every day dependin' on how I feel

Hey Charlie, for chrissakes, if you want to know the truth of it
I don't have a husband, he don't play the trombone
I need to borrow money to pay this lawyer, and Charlie, hey
I'll be eligible for parole come Valentine's day

It's a brother and sister who both do vocals, mostly the female. The voices... middle I think. Clean guitar sound, clean everything sound. Clean electronics used for melody for a change, instead of just mindless bass bonking. I don't know how many good songs they've written, but on the album 'Blueberry Boat' I love every song to death.
