  • 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.

    When the forces of darkness use a mass casualty event like a plane crash to eliminate someone, remember this classic old song.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c126VLSjqR0

    "This Flight Tonight" is a song by Joni Mitchell, from her 1971 album Blue. It tells of the singer's regrets as she leaves her lover on a flight and wishes to return. Its opening lines are:

     

    "This Flight Tonight"

     

    Look out the left the captain said

    The lights down there that's where we'll land

    Saw a falling star burning

    High above the Las Vegas sand

     

    It wasn't the one that you gave to me

    That night down south between the trailers

    Not the early one that you wish upon

    Not the northern one that guides in the sailors

     

    You've got that touch so gentle and sweet

    But you've got that look so critical

    Can't talk to you babe you know I get so weak

    Sometimes I think that love is just mythical

     

    Up there's a heaven, down there's a town

    Blackness everywhere any little lights shine

    Blackness, blackness draggin' me down

    Come on light a candle in this heart of mine

     

    Starbright, starbright, you've got the lovin' that I like

    Turn this crazy bird around

    Should not have got on this flight tonight

     

    I'm drinkin' sweet champagne got the headphones up high

    Can't numb you, can't drum you out of my mind

     

    They're singin'-"Goodbye baby,

    Baby bye-bye,

    Ooh! love is blind"

     

    Up go the flaps,down go the wheels

    Hope you got your heat turned on baby

    Hope they've finally fixed your automobile

    Hope it's better when we meet again babe.


    UK hard rock band Nazareth reworked the song in 1973 to make it their own with a powerful, driving hard-rock treatment which was a hit in Canada, Germany and the UK. It was produced by Roger Glover. The single reached number 11 in the UK charts in November 1973.

    Franz Xaver Gruber, painted by Sebastian Stief (1846)

    "Silent Night" (German: Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht) is a popular Christmas carol, composed in 1818 by Franz Xaver Gruber to lyrics by Joseph Mohr in the small town of Oberndorf bei Salzburg, Austria. It was declared an intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO in March 2011. The song has been recorded by a large number of singers from every music genre

    History


    Autograph (c. 1860) of the carol by Franz Xaver Gruber


    Silent Night Memorial Chapel in Oberndorf

    The song was first performed on Christmas Eve 1818 at St Nicholas parish church in Oberndorf, a village on the Salzach river. The young priest, Father Joseph Mohr, had come to Oberndorf the year before. He had already written the lyrics of the song "Stille Nacht" in 1816 at Mariapfarr, the hometown of his father in the Salzburg Lungau region, where Joseph had worked as a coadjutor.

    The melody was composed by Franz Xaver Gruber, schoolmaster and organist in the nearby village of Arnsdorf. Before Christmas Eve, Mohr brought the words to Gruber and asked him to compose a melody and guitar accompaniment for the church service. Both performed the carol during the mass on the night of December 24.


    The original manuscript has been lost. However a manuscript was discovered in 1995 in Mohr's handwriting and dated by researchers at ca. 1820. It shows that Mohr wrote the words in 1816 when he was assigned to a pilgrim church in Mariapfarr, Austria, and shows that the music was composed by Gruber in 1818. This is the earliest manuscript that exists and the only one in Mohr's handwriting.

    The story behind composing the song was the subject of Christian Vuissa's 2012 film Stille Nacht (de).

    The moral of the story is of course you should teach your children well. Don't depend on the state to do it unless you want them to be good Nazis or Communists. The had a renaissance in the Bush years making them a multi generational protest band.


    Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) is a folk rock supergroup made up of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash. They are known as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (CSNY) when joined by occasional fourth member Neil Young. They are noted for their intricate vocal harmonies, often tumultuous interpersonal relationships, political activism, and lasting influence on American music and culture. All four members of CSNY have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, though Young's inductions were for work not involving the group.

    Prior to the formation of CSN, each member of the band had belonged to another prominent group. David Crosby played guitar, sang and wrote songs with the Byrds; Stephen Stills had been a guitarist, keyboardist, vocalist and songwriter in the band Buffalo Springfield (which also featured Neil Young); and Graham Nash had been singer and songwriter with the Hollies.

    Due to internal friction, Crosby was dismissed from The Byrds in late 1967.[2] By early 1968, Buffalo Springfield had disintegrated, and after aiding in putting together the band’s final album, Stills was unemployed. He and Crosby began meeting informally and jamming. The result of one encounter in Florida on Crosby’s schooner was the song "Wooden Ships", composed in collaboration with another guest, Jefferson Airplane's Paul Kantner.

    Graham Nash had been introduced to Crosby when the Byrds had toured the United Kingdom in 1966, and when the Hollies ventured to California in 1968, Nash resumed his acquaintance with him. At a party in July 1968 at Joni Mitchell's house, Nash asked Stills and Crosby to repeat their performance of a new song by Stills, “You Don't Have To Cry”, with Nash improvising a third part harmony. The vocals jelled, and the three realized that they had a unique vocal chemistry.

    Creatively frustrated with the Hollies, Nash decided to quit the band and work with Crosby and Stills. After failing an audition with the Beatles' Apple Records, they were signed to Atlantic Records by Ahmet Ertegün, who had been a fan of Buffalo Springfield and was disappointed by that band's demise. From the outset, given their previous experiences, the trio decided not to be locked into a group structure. They used their surnames as identification to ensure independence and a guarantee that the band could not continue without one of them, unlike both the Byrds and the Hollies. They picked up a management team in Elliot Roberts and David Geffen, who got them signed to Atlantic and would help to consolidate clout for the group in the industry. Roberts kept the band focused and dealt with egos, while Geffen handled the business deals, since, in Crosby’s words, they needed a shark and Geffen was it.

    Stills was already signed to Atlantic Records through his Buffalo Springfield contract. Crosby had been released from his Byrds' deal with Columbia, as he was considered to be unimportant and too difficult to work with. Nash, however, was still signed to Epic Records through the Hollies. Ertegun worked out a deal with Clive Davis to essentially trade Nash to Atlantic in exchange for Richie Furay (who was also signed to Atlantic from having been in Buffalo Springfield) and his new band Poco.

  • VAN MORRISON - Someone Like You

    2998 Views - 0 Comments


    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.
