THE VERVE/Space and Time

Isn't it funny how you can have one favourite song on an album so you don't notice any other songs on the album but then one day WOW suddenly you discover a new favourite! Cool.

RIDE/Vapour Trail

This is my current Favourite, Favourite song right now...on repeat!

Funny thing is I just like the tune I never actually knew what the lyrics were before I looked them up just now....turns out it's a very romantic song LOL ;)

First you look so strong,
Then you fade away.
The sun will blind my eyes,
I love you anyway.
First you form a smile,
I watch you for a while.
You are a vapour trail,
In a deep blue sky.

Tremble with a sigh,
Glitter in your eye.
You seem to come and go,
I never seem to know.
And all my time,
is yours as much as mine.
We never have enough,
Time to show our love.

Exotic Sounds of the East-Orient

Lately I find myself drawn to exotic particular traditional oriental music utilising traditional instruments...such as that of The Guo Brothers- off their awesome 1990 album YUAN. I think it makes for more "awake" study music compared to the usual European classical baroque...a nice refreshing change anyway...

I also like Nigel Kennedy & The Kroke Band - their East Meets West album with excerpts in clip below:

Angelique Kidjo/Loloye

How gorgeous is this song! I find it particularly pretty in these wee hours of the night - a bit like an exotic African lullaby :)

The clip is a tribute to women...March 8 is International Women's Day :)...sorry my timing is a bit off...LOL

Anyhow I digress, please of my favourite world musicians...who is an absolute delight to catch performing live...unfortunately we aren't that lucky this side of the hemisphere to get to see her very often!

MORRISSEY/Hold on to your friends

I don't know why suddenly I am in love with this song...the combination of notes particularly at the beginning just hit all the right buttons...

You also can't get past these lyrics LOL... typical Morrissey honesty and realistic cynicism ;)

But now you only call me when you're feeling depressed
When you feel happy I'm so far from your mind
My patience is stretched, my loyalty vexed
You're losing all of your friends...

the shitty friend experience...a universal affliction especially when you're a giver, which is probably why I am now so selective about mine since in older age the less I can be bothered investing...

Wow, finally I post something so mainstream that it's had almost 3 million views! "Good" does not always = obscure ;)

He, this song totally encapsulates my teenage years (the lyrics say it all) :p
