    Simple Minds are a Scottish rock band formed in 1977. They achieved commercial success in the early 1980s and, despite various personnel changes, continue to record and tour.

    The band scored a string of hit singles, and are best known internationally for their 1985 hit "Don't You (Forget About Me)" (UK #7, US #1, CAN #1), from the soundtrack of the John Hughes film The Breakfast Club. Their other more prominent hits include "Alive and Kicking" (UK #7, US #3, CAN #3) and "Belfast Child" (UK #1, IRE #1, NLD #1). In 1986, the band was nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Group.[1]

    The core of the band is the two remaining founding members – Jim Kerr (vocals, songwriting) and Charlie Burchill (guitars, keyboards after 1990, other instruments, songwriting). The other current band members are Andy Gillespie (keyboards), drummer Mel Gaynor (who first joined the band in 1982) and Ged Grimes (bass guitar). Former members include bass guitarist Derek Forbes, drummer Brian McGee, and keyboardist Mick MacNeil.

    "Don't You (Forget About Me)" is a 1985 song performed by the band Simple Minds. The song is best known for being played during the opening and closing credits of the John Hughes film The Breakfast Club. It was written by producer Keith Forsey and Steve Schiff (guitarist and songwriter from the Nina Hagen band).

    James Roy Horner (August 14, 1953 - June 22, 2015) was an American composer, conductor, and orchestrator of film scores. He was known for the integration of choral and electronic elements in many of his film scores, and for frequent use of Celtic musical elements.

    Horner was an accomplished concert hall composer before he moved into writing film scores. His first major film score was for the 1979 film The Lady in Red, but did not establish himself as a mainstream composer until he worked on the 1982 film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Horner's score for Titanic is the best selling orchestral film soundtrack of all time while Titanic and Avatar, both directed by James Cameron, are the two highest-grossing films of all time.

    Horner collaborated multiple times with directors Jean-Jacques Annaud, Mel Gibson, Walter Hill, Ron Howard, and Joe Johnston. Horner composed music for over 100 films, and won two Academy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, three Satellite Awards, three Saturn Awards, and was nominated for three British Academy Film Awards.

    The messages he left will last forever as a testament. However, his craft was hijacked to implant messages in the movies. I remember putting a lot of time into the pulsations of 3D Avatar. It was timely to look at the Hollywood video yesterday. We cannot surrender to the dark side for fame or fortune. God does not pay well. He rewards well. There was no money in Eden only on the other tree. On his tree we had the life. From that tree the fruit is sweet. If we hold on together, we can taste it. That's why I clasp the tree of life and shake the tree of knowledge. If we hold on together....forever in Eden.

    I feel strongly this was a solstice sacrifice happening on 6/22. However, his legacy was dynamic.

    On June 22, 2015, unconfirmed reports emerged that Horner was killed when his Embraer EMB 312 Tucano turboprop aircraft crashed into the Los Padres National Forest in southern California. He was the sole occupant of the aircraft. Though the pilot was not immediately identified, Horner's attorney said, "We know it's his plane, and we know we haven't heard from him." Variety later confirmed Horner's death. His assistant wrote on her Facebook page, "We have lost an amazing person with a huge heart and unbelievable talent [who] died doing what he loved." The FAA indicated the official identity of the deceased pilot will be confirmed by the local authorities.

  • VAN MORRISON - Someone Like You

    Van Morrison, OBE (born George Ivan Morrison; 31 August 1945) is a Northern Irish singer-songwriter and musician. His live performances at their best are described as mystical and transcendental, while some of his recordings, such as the studio albums Astral Weeks and Moondance and the live album It's Too Late to Stop Now, are critically acclaimed and appear at the top of many greatest album lists.

    Known as "Van the Man" to his fans, Morrison started his professional career when, as a teenager in the late 1950s, he played a variety of instruments including guitar, harmonica, keyboards and saxophone for various Irish showbands covering the popular hits of the day. He rose to prominence in the mid-1960s as the lead singer of the Northern Irish R&B band Them, with whom he recorded the garage band classic "Gloria". His solo career began under the pop-hit oriented guidance of Bert Berns with the release of the hit single "Brown Eyed Girl" in 1967. After Berns' death, Warner Bros. Records bought out his contract and allowed him three sessions to record Astral Weeks in 1968. Even though this album would gradually garner high praise, it was initially poorly received; however, the next one, Moondance, established Morrison as a major artist, and throughout the 1970s he built on his reputation with a series of critically acclaimed albums and live performances. Morrison continues to record and tour, producing albums and live performances that sell well and are generally warmly received, sometimes collaborating with other artists, such as Georgie Fame and The Chieftains. In 2008 he performed Astral Weeks live for the first time since 1968.

    Much of Morrison's music is structured around the conventions of soul music and R&B, such as the popular singles "Brown Eyed Girl", "Jackie Wilson Said (I'm in Heaven When You Smile)", "Domino" and "Wild Night". An equal part of his catalogue consists of lengthy, loosely connected, spiritually inspired musical journeys that show the influence of Celtic tradition, jazz, and stream-of-consciousness narrative, such as Astral Weeks and lesser-known works such as Veedon Fleece and Common One. The two strains together are sometimes referred to as "Celtic Soul".

    Morrison has received considerable acclaim, including six Grammy Awards, the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, being inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and appearing on several "Greatest Artists" lists.

  • Into the Mystic - Van Morrison

    A blast from the past the vinyl days. Van Morrison's Into the Mystic. In a way that's what we do at the Cafe. We peer into the mystic the theme of this upcoming show.


    "Into the Mystic" is a song written by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison and featured on his 1970 album Moondance. It was also included on Morrison's 1974 live album, It's Too Late To Stop Now. The song has a soothing, calm, medium-paced tempo.

    Recording and composition

    "Into the Mystic" was recorded during the Moondance sessions at A&R Recording Studios in New York City in September to November 1969. Elliott Scheiner was the engineer.[1]

    The lyrics are about a spiritual quest, typical of Morrison's work. "Bass thrums like a boat in motion, and the song comes back to water as a means of magical transformation."[2] "At the very end Van sings: too late to stop now, suggesting that the song also describes an act of love." (This phrase would become a key point of many live concerts.)[3] Compared to "Yesterday" by The Beatles, it has been described as "another song where the music and the words seem to have been born together, at the same time, to make one perfectly formed, complete artistic element.“[4]

    Morrison remarked on the song: "'Into the Mystic' is another one like 'Madame Joy' and 'Brown Skinned Girl'. Originally I wrote it as 'Into the Misty'. But later I thought that it had something of an ethereal feeling to it so I called it 'Into the Mystic'. That song is kind of funny because when it came time to send the lyrics in WB Music, I couldn't figure out what to send them. Because really the song has two sets of lyrics. For example, there's 'I was born before the wind' and 'I was borne before the wind', and also 'Also younger than the son, Ere the bonny boat was one' and 'All so younger than the son, Ere the bonny boat was won' ... I guess the song is just about being part of the universe."[5]

  • BOB MARLEY - Redemption Song

    On the 70th anniversary of Bob Marley's birth celebrate by emancipating yourself from mental slavery. It's all that we can ask

    Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley OM (6 February 1945 ? 11 May 1981) was a Jamaican reggae singer-songwriter, musician, and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim. Starting out in 1963 with the group the Wailers, he forged a distinctive songwriting and vocal style that would later resonate with audiences worldwide. The Wailers would go on to release some of the earliest reggae records with producer Lee Scratch Perry. After the Wailers disbanded in 1974, Marley pursued a solo career which culminated in the release of the album Exodus in 1977 which established his worldwide reputation and produced his status as one of the world's best-selling artists of all time, with sales of more than 75 million records. He was a committed Rastafari who infused his music with a sense of spirituality.

    "Redemption Song" is a song by Bob Marley. It is the final track on Bob Marley & the Wailers' ninth album, Uprising, produced by Chris Blackwell and released by Island Records.[2] The song is considered one of Marley's greatest works. Some key lyrics derived from a speech given by the Pan-Africanist orator Marcus Garvey.

    At the time he wrote the song, circa 1979, Bob Marley had been diagnosed with the cancer in his toe that later was to take his life. According to Rita Marley, "he was already secretly in a lot of pain and dealt with his own mortality, a feature that is clearly apparent in the album, particularly in this song".

    The song urges listeners to "Emancipate yourself from mental slavery," because "None but ourselves can free our minds". These lines were taken from a speech given by Marcus Garvey in Nova Scotia during October 1937 and published in his Black Man magazine:

    We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery because whilst others might free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is your only ruler, sovereign. The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind ...

    Holly's band The Crickets broke up a year before his death

    The plane crash that claimed the lives of three rock 'n' roll stars, including Buddy Holly, could be investigated afresh by US transport safety experts.

    The 22-year-old Holly, Ritchie Valens and Jiles P Richardson - known as the Big Bopper - died in a crash shortly after take-off in Iowa in 1959.

    The pilot of the single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza was also killed.

    On Wednesday, the US National Transportation Safety Board said it was reviewing a request to reopen a probe.

    "We are reviewing the petition to reconsider the Buddy Holly crash, based on criteria in our 'regs'," it said in a statement.

    There were two reasons given for the crash by the Civil Aeronautics Board, which carried out the investigation 56 years ago.

    The first was pilot error by 21-year-old Roger Peterson and the second attributed factor was a poor weather briefing given to him.

    Holly was born in Lubbock, Texas, as Charles Hardin Holley

    Fans still gather at his Texas grave

    According to NTSB rules, petitions must be based on the discovery of new evidence or indications that previous conclusions were inaccurate.

    According to the Mason City Globe Gazette, the NTSB received the request from a pilot from New England called LJ Coon.

    He told the paper he believes the pilot's "heroic" actions could be seen in a new light.

    Holly had only hired the plane after heating problems developed on his tour bus.

    The trio had just completed a concert in Clear Lake, Iowa, and were heading to the next tour date in Moorhead, Minnesota.

    Don McLean later immortalised the tragedy with his 1972 hit American Pie.



  • Creedence Clearwater Revival - Have you ...

    Creedence Clearwater Revival (often shortened to "Creedence" or "CCR") was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The band consisted of lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and primary songwriter John Fogerty, rhythm guitarist Tom Fogerty, bassist Stu Cook and drummer Doug Clifford. Their musical style encompassed the roots rock and swamp rock genres. Despite their San Francisco Bay Area origins, they portrayed a Southern rock style, with lyrics about bayous, catfish, the Mississippi River, and other popular elements of Southern American iconography, as well as political and socially-conscious lyrics about topics including the Vietnam War.

    "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" is a song written by John Fogerty and released as a single in 1971 from the album Pendulum (1970) by roots rock group Creedence Clearwater Revival. The song charted highest in Canada, reaching number one on the RPM 100 national album chart in March 1971. In the US, it peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the same year. On Cash Box pop chart, it peaked at number three. Billboard co-listed the b-side "Hey Tonight". In the UK, it reached number 36. It was the group's eighth gold-selling single.[1]

    Some have speculated that the song's lyrics are referencing the Vietnam War, with the "rain" being a metaphor for bombs falling from the sky.[2] In his review of the song for Allmusic website, Mark Deming suggests that the song is about the idealism of the 1960s and about it fading in the wake of events such as the Altamont Free Concert and the Kent State shootings and that Fogerty is saying that the same issues of the '60s still existed in the 1970s but that people were no longer fighting for them.[3] However, Fogerty himself has said in interviews and prior to playing the song in concert that the song is about rising tension within CCR and the imminent departure of his brother Tom from the band.[4] In an interview, Fogerty stated that the song was written about the fact that they were on the top of the charts, and had surpassed all of their wildest expectations of fame and fortune. They were rich and famous, but somehow all members of the band at the time were depressed and unhappy. Thus the line "Have you ever seen the rain, coming down on a sunny day." The band split in October the following year after the release of the album Mardi Gras.

    Argentina's Rational Default

    August 7, 2014

    This default, Argentina's eighth, is perhaps the strangest in history. The government has plenty of cash on hand and has already deposited its most recent interest payment of five hundred and thirty-nine million dollars with its trustee, the Bank of New York Mellon. But the bank cannot forward Argentina's money to its creditors, because Thomas Griesa, a federal judge in New York, has issued an order prohibiting the transfer.

    It's their EIGHTH default, but it matters not because they really had the money. The hidden hand is playing cames holding up the payment. Notice the amount of the interest. Imagine the amount of the debt. We are all slaves to the banksters. However, Argentina has something every agent looking for a safe haven should desire THE TANGO! Let the bastards play their games. We have moonlit nights and music and romance. The banksters have delusions of glory. The Cafe links to Buenos Aires here and shares the passion of travel to that Latin land where the dance and the ambiance are an inspiration. Never fear them. Enjoy yourself. Let them fear us in case the music ever stops.

If Conspiracy Cafe had street side venue, we would play this music and talk about the latest plots and conspiracies. The like minded could dance the tango and show the world that not only is knowledge power, but is life at the apex. We know, and we change destines. Enjoy.

  • Zager And Evans - In the Year 2525

    "In the Year 2525 (Exordium et Terminus)" is a 1969 hit song by the American pop-rock duo of Zager and Evans. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks commencing July 12, 1969. It peaked at number one in the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in August and September that year.[1] The song was written and composed by Rick Evans in 1964 and originally released on a small regional record label (Truth Records) in 1968. A year later, an Odessa, Texas, radio station popularized the disc, which RCA Records quickly picked up for nationwide distribution. Zager and Evans disbanded in 1971. Denny Zager now builds custom guitars in Lincoln, Nebraska.


    "In the Year 2525 (Exordium and Terminus)" opens with the words "In the year 2525, If man is still alive, If woman can survive, They may find...". Subsequent verses pick up the story at 1010-year intervals from 3535 to 6565. Disturbing predictions are given for each selected year. In the year 3535, for example, all of a person's actions, words and thoughts will be preprogrammed into a daily pill. Then the pattern as well as the music changes, going up a half step in the key of the song, after two stanzas, first from A-flat minor, to A minor, and, then, finally, to B flat minor, and verses for the years 7510, 8510 and 9595 follow.

    The song has no chorus. Amid ominous-sounding orchestral music, the final dated chronological verse is,

    In the year 9595, I'm kinda wonderin' if Man is gonna be alive.

    He's taken everything this old Earth can give, and he ain't put back nothin', whoa-whoa...,

    The summary verse concludes:

    Now it's been 10,000 years, Man has cried a billion tears,

    For what, he never knew. Now man's reign is through.

    But through eternal night, The twinkling of starlight.

    So very far away, Maybe it's only yesterday.

    The song goes back to the beginning, starting all over again, with 2525 before the song's fade.

    The overriding theme, of a world doomed by its passive acquiescence to and overdependence on its own overdone technologies, struck a resonant chord in millions of people around the world in the late 1960s.

    The song describes a nightmarish vision of the future as man's technological inventions gradually dehumanize him. It includes a colloquial reference to the Second Coming (In the year 7510, if God's a-coming, He ought to make it by then.), which echoed the zeitgeist of the Jesus movement.


    This song comes out of some predictive programming I'm working on that graced the cover of the latest The New Yorker magazine. It is a chilling analysis of the future. It will be ready soon. With eyes to see it is very clear to me. New York is always on the short list of the NWO. GET THE PICTURE!

    Of course you see the parallel to the Abbey Road photo from the Ottawa attack. The boys are back and their disguises are better than ever.
