Soul becomes increasingly apparent with proximity to heaven. It’s why he’s stood on the desk.

Beautiful, desolate song. Original is by Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam. I think having multiple singers here maybe reinforces the lyrical content: I take it as being not just about him being alone, it's about people in general being alone, and not quite finding one another. In which case, the line "I'm a fugitive, community has driven me out" has to be taken as a misunderstanding on the part of the narrator. Which I will. Ain't nobody stopping me. :P

Good cover.

Popped up in my Spotify list, listened to it all the way through... and I enjoyed it. Shocking behaviour.



Although I must say, watching the video now: what's with all the incredibly attractive builders? Very few construction workers are this good looking. You generally need to go surveyor or higher to get into the fit leagues. :P

Also, I counted at least 20 health and safety violations. Furthermore, I'm assuming she didn't have a hot work permit for that torch, given that she's neither handling it properly or equipped with the necessary PPE. Just shut this place down, it's all fucked.

Oh wow, an actual screenshot. Confirmation that I'm talking to real people and this isn't some horrendous fever dream. Very good to know, cheers.

It's Nitzer Ebb - Violent Playground. :P

Keep the tunes rolling, people. You might actually get this one.

Seven times I went down
Six times I walked back
I don't fear the dark anymore
'Cause I've become all that

I will be rocks I will be water
I will leave this to my daughter
Lift your head up in the wind
When you feel yourself grow colder
Wrap the night around your shoulders
I will be with you even then
Even when I cannot see your face anymore

Don't forget the time I wooed him with red wine
The devil he wore such a fine, fine shirt
And it stayed so clean
While he dragged me through the dirt
Now honey don't trust anyone who looks you in the eye
Don't take any kindness, it's a demand in disguise

I will be rocks I will be water
I will leave this to my daughter
Lift your head up in the wind
When you feel yourself grow colder
Wrap the night around your shoulders
I will be with you even then
Even when I cannot see your face anymore

I have seen such things child
On this and the other side
Words cannot show you
The midnight owl it does not know you
You will see for your sweet self by and by

I will be rocks I will be water
I will leave this to my daughter
Lift your head up in the wind
When you feel yourself grow colder
Wrap the night around your shoulders
I will be with you even then
Even when I cannot see your face anymore

How do I get this link to show up properly btw? I've tried playing around with the url and I can't get the thumbnail to show up :facepalm:

I thought linking it like this should work?

This is the url:

https://youtu.be/qdsLPxGQoQw

Remove the first bit before the fwdslash, so that it's just the unique code, like so:

qdsLPxGQoQw

Then put [youtube][/youtube] around that code to embed.

Voila:



Also, new tyoon from Prospa. :awesome:

Kirin J Callinan's new single!



Kirin, you're total fucking weirdo and I love you.

Also, new interview for Kirin fans:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q63uEUiscic

I know that's probably just me, but I don't care. Unusually candid, but with a smidgeon of classic Kirin weirdness at 29:25.

Lovely tune about Kintyre by Archie McAllister and Ross Kennedy. Much better than that other tune about Kintyre.



"Mull of of Kintyre" is a terrible song and should not be played by anybody ever. Fuck you, Wings.
