A taste of the temporal while pondering the eternal


On the town or...


On the terrace


Life is a spin.

  • KINGSTON TRIO: Where Have All the Flower...

    "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" is a contemporary folk song. The first three verses were written by Pete Seeger in 1955, and published in Sing Out! magazine. Additional verses were added by Joe Hickerson in May 1960, who turned it into a circular song. Its rhetorical "where?" and meditation on death place the song in the ubi sunt tradition. In 2010, the New Statesman listed it as one of the "Top 20 Political Songs".

    Seeger found inspiration for the song in October 1955, while on a plane bound for a concert in Ohio. Leafing through his notebook he saw the passage, "Where are the flowers, the girls have plucked them. Where are the girls, they've all taken husbands. Where are the men, they're all in the army." These lines were taken from the traditional Cossacks folk song "Koloda-Duda", referenced in the Mikhail Sholokhov novel And Quiet Flows the Don (1934), which Seeger had read "at least a year or two before"

    VERSIONS:


    The Kingston Trio recorded the song in 1961. Believing it to be a traditional song, they claimed authorship, although upon notice from Seeger they had their name removed and credited Seeger and Hickerson. Seeger acknowledged their success with this song. Their single, with "O Ken Karanga" as the A-side and the hit "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" the B-side, reached #21 in the 1962 Billboard Hot 100 chart and #4 on the Easy Listening chart.


    Peter, Paul and Mary included the song on their eponymous debut album (which spent five weeks as the #1 album in the country) in 1962.

    Emerson, Lake & Palmer, also known as ELP, were a sporadically active English progressive rock supergroup power trio. They found success in the 1970s, have sold over forty million albums and headlined large stadium concerts. The band consists of Keith Emerson (keyboards), Greg Lake (bass guitar, vocals, guitar) and Carl Palmer (drums, percussion). They are one of the most popular and commercially successful progressive rock bands.


    The ELP sound is dominated by the Hammond organ, Moog synthesizer, and piano of the flamboyant virtuoso Emerson. The band's compositions are heavily influenced by classical music in addition to jazz and – at least in their early years – hard rock. Many of their pieces are arrangements of, or contain quotations from, classical music, and they can be said to fit into the subgenre of symphonic rock. However, Lake ensured that each of their albums contained at least one simple, accessible acoustic ballad, many of which received heavy radio airplay. Lake, in addition to providing vocals, bass guitar, electric guitar and lyrics, also produced the band's first five albums.

  • SUPERTRAMP Crime of the Century

    While poaching is evil the song to me reflects the evils of the secret elites who enslave the world. This was the best rendition of the song I could find. 


    Crime of the Century is the third album by English rock band Supertramp, released in 1974. Crime of the Century was their commercial breakthrough on both sides of the Atlantic, aided by the UK hit "Dreamer" and the U.S. hit "Bloody Well Right". It was a UK Top 10 album and a U.S. Top 40 album, eventually being certified Gold in the U.S. in 1977 after the release of Even in the Quietest Moments.... The album was Supertramp's first to feature drummer Bob Siebenberg (at the time credited as Bob C. Benberg), woodwinds player John Anthony Helliwell, bassist Dougie Thomson, and co-producer Ken Scott.

    The album's dedication reads "To Sam", which is a nickname for Stanley August Miesegaes, the Dutch millionaire who supported the band financially from 1969-72.

    Crime of the century

    Now they're planning the crime of the century

    Well what will it be?

    Read all about their schemes and adventuring

    It's well worth the fee

    So roll up and see

    And they rape the universe

    How they've gone from bad to worse

    Who are these men of lust, greed, and glory?

    Rip off the masks and let's see

    But that's no right - oh no, what's the story?

    There's you and there's me

    That can't be right

    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.

    "If I Had a Rocket Launcher" is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn, from his 1984 album Stealing Fire.


    The song was inspired by Cockburn's visit, sponsored by Oxfam, to Guatemalan refugee camps in Mexico following the counterinsurgency campaign of dictator Efraín Ríos Montt. Although Cockburn had occasionally touched on political themes in his earlier songs, "If I Had a Rocket Launcher" was his first explicitly political song to be released as a single, and earned him a new reputation as an outspoken musical activist.

    In the song, Cockburn despairs of waiting for a political solution to the crisis, and expresses the desire to take matters into his own hands. Each verse ends with a line stating what Cockburn would do if he had a rocket launcher: in the first verse, I'd make somebody pay. In the second, I would retaliate. In the third, I would not hesitate.

    The fourth and final verse ends with the song's most famous and controversial lyric: If I had a rocket launcher, some son-of-a-bitch would die.

    In a later interview, Cockburn stated that the song "is not a call to arms; this is a cry."

    In 2009, Cockburn performed the song for Canadian troops in Afghanistan; he was subsequently presented (temporarily) with a rocket launcher.

  • 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 ...

    "Won't Get Fooled Again" is a song by the English rock band The Who, written by Pete Townshend. It was released as a single in June 1971, reaching the top 10 in the UK, while the full eight-and-a-half minute version appears as the final track on the band's 1971 album Who's Next, released that August.

    "Won't Get Fooled Again"

     

    We'll be fighting in the streets

    With our children at our feet

    And the morals that they worship will be gone

    And the men who spurred us on

    Sit in judgement of all wrong

    They decide and the shotgun sings the song

     

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution

    Take a bow for the new revolution

    Smile and grin at the change all around

    Pick up my guitar and play

    Just like yesterday

    Then I'll get on my knees and pray

    We don't get fooled again

     

    The change, it had to come

    We knew it all along

    We were liberated from the fold, that's all

    And the world looks just the same

    And history ain't changed

    'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

     

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution

    Take a bow for the new revolution

    Smile and grin at the change all around

    Pick up my guitar and play

    Just like yesterday

    Then I'll get on my knees and pray

    We don't get fooled again

    No, no!

     

    I'll move myself and my family aside

    If we happen to be left half alive

    I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky

    Though I know that the hypnotized never lie

    Do ya?

     

    There's nothing in the streets

    Looks any different to me

    And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye

    And the parting on the left

    Are now parting on the right

    And the beards have all grown longer overnight

     

    I'll tip my hat to the new constitution

    Take a bow for the new revolution

    Smile and grin at the change all around

    Pick up my guitar and play

    Just like yesterday

    Then I'll get on my knees and pray

    We don't get fooled again

    Don't get fooled again

    No, no!

     

    Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

     

    Meet the new boss

    Same as the old boss


    WELL SOME PEOPLE WERE FOOLED. WE'LL SING THE OLD SONG AND CHERISH OUR ABILITY TO THINK AND REASON.

    El Cid (1961) is a historical epic film, a romanticized story of the life of the Christian Castilian knight, Don Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, called "El Cid" who in the 11th century fought the North African Almoravides and ultimately contributed to the unification of Spain. The film stars Charlton Heston in the title role and Sophia Loren as Doña Ximena.

    When a man loves a woman he says it in the immortal works of Miklós Rózsa one of the greatest composers of any era in my opinion.


    Sophia Loren and Charleton Heston starred in El Cid.

    So can you as the world unfolds.
