RADIOHEAD/bulletproof...i wish i was

eh, i like this one too!!


so i declare
a holiday
fall asleep
drift away

LOL, this one's a blast down Memory, can you believe this album is FOURTEEN years old?

Sheesh, that makes me feel old. I still listen and think I'm a teenager!

In any case I quite liked this clip- thought it really matched the song well.

I think this song is good for people like me- who always want EVERYTHING just perfect RIGHT, so hard to please...

U2/Sometimes you can't make it on your own

This has got to be one of the most beautiful U2 songs...

it seems especially pertinent when all your closest people are at a distance...

On the practical-material front I have so much great support and contacts with which I defintely could not succeed or thrive without... however it is in terms of not having those deep mental-emotional resonances, connections and bonds readily at hand in the tangible world, it can sometimes feel...tough.

It is so easy to anchor in practical materialism or "comfort" people but to be able to feel truly grounded it has to come from that place we often get too busy to remember to connect with, deep within. I find being in nature is a good prompt to get back to that elusive place...for me it's almost like a magical door that appears transiently, then disappears...but I usually find I'm the one that can make it appear if I try hard enough.

DEPECHE MODE/Enjoy the Silence (Live, Dortmund 1989)

Sorry I'm an 80s child after all...


Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world

Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Enjoy the silence


I woke up one morning to some captivating tranquil I was thinking now this wouldn't be half bad for my patients to relax to in the background!

I have since found this to be the "lullaby-esque" track I first heard...definitely a huge departure from my usual listening fare(shows I'm getting old LOL)...the guy is an amazing guitarist by the way-definitely youtube his other stuff- he has an impressive repertoire!

LOL, this is not usually one song that I'd get up and scream "that's a favourite!" but since I heard this song loud and clear in the background of my dream on television I thought it was worth documenting...and plus I kinda like MUSE...they're kinda Radiohead-esque.

In any case I like the tortured melodramatic vocals too...LOL and the creepy organ bits.
