Heartbreaker In Both Sound And Vision – ‘I PROMISE’ By RADIOHEAD

Lullabies from the sandman

Five years ago OK COMPUTER turned 20 (so yes, next month it’s 25). To celebrate the occasion RADIOHEAD released a special anniversary edition of their masterpiece called OKNOTOK featuring three previously unreleased tracks recorded during the OK sessions.

One of them is the supreme ballad titled I PROMISE.

A heartbreaker that sends shivers down your spine, in sound and vision.

Listen/watch

I won’t run away no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when you lock me out, I promise
I say my prayers every night, I promise

I don’t wish that I’m strict, I promise
The tantrums and the chilling chats, I promise
Even when the ship is wrecked, I promise
Tie me to the rotten deck, I promise

I won’t run away no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when the ship is wrecked, I promise
Tie me to the rotten deck, I promise

I won’t fool around no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when you lock me out, I promise
I say my prayers every night, I promise
I won’t fool around no more, I promise

I won’t run away no more, I promise

Goodnight Lullaby… Goodnight ARNO

Lullabies for bedtime

23 April 2022

Belgian all-round artist ARNO, with Bob Dylan my all-time favorite singer/songwriter/performer/entertainer ever, passed away today
following a devastating battle with cancer. He was 72.

He was/is and will be an unforgettable part of my musical life. I saw him (with his former bands/projects and his looooooooooong solo career) more than a 100 times giving it all on
stage, every single time. He was a bluesman, a rocker, a crooner, a storyteller, a humanist, and so much more.

A once-in-my-lifetime hero, forever in my heart and my soul.

JE VEUX VIVRE / I WANT TO LIVE

Je veux vivre dans un monde
Sans jalousie, sans amant
Et où les pessimistes sont contents
Je veux vivre dans un monde
Sans papier et où mon foie
Arrete de pleurer
Je veux vivre dans un monde sans pilule
Où les riches et les pauvres
N’existent plus
Je veux vivre dans un monde
Où les chiens embrassent les chats
Et où ils dansent, ils dansent une rumba
Je veux vivre dans un monde
Où les malheureux sont heureux
Je veux vivre dans un monde
Où Dieu il est amoureux
Je veux vivre dans un monde
Sans chichis et où les cons
Font pas, font pas de bruits
Je veux voler très haut. Libre!
Comme un poisson dans l’eau
Et dans ma bouche, pas de mots
Je veux vivre dans un monde
Sans cholestérol
Avec une overdose de rock’n’roll
Je veux vivre dans un monde
Où on doit pas chercher
Chercher la beauté, chercher la vérité…

I want to live in a world
Without jealousy, without a lover
And where the pessimists are happy
I want to live in a world
Without paper and where my liver
Stop crying
I want to live in a world without pills
where the rich and the poor
No longer exist
I want to live in a world
where the dogs kiss the cats
And where they dance, they dance a rumba
I want to live in a world
where the unfortunate are happy
I want to live in a world
Where God he is in love
I want to live in a world
Without fuss and where the idiots
Don’t, don’t make noises
I want to fly very high. Free!
Like a fish in water
And in my mouth, no words
I want to live in a world
Cholesterol free
With an overdose of rock’n’roll
I want to live in a world
where we should not look
Searching for beauty, searching for truth…

Waking Up With… With THE STONES On A Cool Roll Back In 1971

Works faster than caffeine

This enrapturing live version of Dead Flowers from their
classic 1971 LP Sticky Fingers, was filmed in the legendary
Marquee Club in London the same year.

The Glimmer Twins upfront, Charlie Watts being Mister Cool,
Bill Wyman
as usual in the back, but Mick Taylor steals the
show with his magical guitar play.

It’s only rock ‘n’ roll…

See you in Brussels, imperishable motherrockers…

Night Lullaby – ‘LAKELAND ECHO’ From New Top Album By SEA POWER

Time to go to bed

Last February British day/night dreamers SEA POWER released their
8th longplayer titled Everything Was Forever. An instant pop classic
to my ears with foggy ballad LAKELAND ECHO as one of the many
highlights. Enjoy below.

Turn the tape on
That’s a grand track
That’s a good one
I think I’ve heard enough

Heard enough of nothing
Better make the bed up
Better start laughing
Better get the sun hats
It’s not for everyone

We went to the river
Down by the old canal
We went to deliver
The Lakeland Echo
Ce n’est pas la musique

Better get the sun hats
Better start laughing
It’s not for everyone
It’s not for everyone
It’s not for everyone

Listen/watch and dream here..

Night Lullaby… THE BOSS With A Melancholic Pearl

Time to go to bed

19 April 2022

The Boss is an expert in writing lullabies for the midnight hours,
for heart and soul. Like this melancholic pearl called One Minute
You’re Here
from his latest album Letter To You (2020).

Big black train comin’ down the track
Blow your whistle long and long
One minute you’re here
Next minute you’re gone

I lay my penny down on the rails
As the summer wind sings its last song
One minute you’re here
Next minute you’re gone

Baby baby baby
I’m so alone
Baby baby baby
I’m coming home

Goodnight, folks…

‘The Last Goodbye’ by THE KILLS

It’s the last goodbye I swear
I can’t rely on a dime a day love that don’t go anywhere
I learn to cry for someone else
I can’t get by on an odds and ends love that don’t ever match up
I heard all you said and I took it to heart

I won’t forget I swear
I have no regrets for the past is behind me
Tomorrow reminds me just where

Can’t quite see the end
How can I rely on my heart if I break it with my own two hands?
I heard all you said and I love you to death
I heard all you said don’t say anything

It’s the last goodbye I swear
I can’t survive on a half-hearted love that will never be whole
