I haven't listened to him for a while, may get out one of my favourite LP's by Seeger: Rainbow Race. I have a lot of his really early stuff.

Our Lady Peace - Healthy In Paranoid Times, it's good, but it doesn't have too much replay value although that might be because I was playing it for the last three weeks in my mp3 player on the way to school.

I'm also listening to a bunch of Fallout Boy tracks, I know I have horrible, horrible taste for admitting that. They're suprisingly catchy, even though they're pretty emo.

Moka Only, Natasha Bedingfield and Kanye West new singles' are also making frequent appearences.

The last track on "Enemy of the Sun" by Neurosis. I couldn't fit the whole album on one CD so 'cleanse' had to go on another one. I don't mind though... it kind of works that way.

Genitorturers - 120 Days of Genitorture

The lyrics are ignorable, but that's natural, as this is death metal influence industrial shock rock. At any rate, I dig the mix of punk, metal, industrial and glam elements.

I'm giving into my guiltiest pleasure...
Party rock.

My playlist right now is more or less just Andrew W.K. and a few Judas Priest tunes...

But, at the bottom of it is Therion's KILLER "Secret of the Runes". The song Midgard is the greatest song ever made by humans...Although on "Crowning of Atlantis" they did do that cool cover of Manowar's Thor (The Powerhead).

Kathleen Edwards - Failer

People are always comparing female musicians to other female musicians, and in the folk-rock genre, typically to two or three other female musicians. Now being compared to Lucinda Williams, Sheryl Crow, or Aimee Mann ain't no insult, but it gets old, and vaguely belittling, after a while.

So I'll say that the musician who Kathleen Edwards reminds me most of is Freedy Johnston. ("Freedy" is a guy.)

Feist. She's coming to Saskatoon and Regina next week, so I'll be sure to go to one of the shows.

I just got a new record player, and I tested out some of my old blues albums last night. So I've been listening to Blind Wille McTell and Fred and Annie Mae McDowell.

The first song I played, to test it out, was Herb Albert's The Lonely Bull. Classic song. If anyone likes it, I recommend they also listen to the Delinquent Habits' song, Très Delinquentes. One of the best samples ever!

I have a really nice live version by Cheryl Crow. I think it's an off-the-cuff performance at a live show, and you hear the tail end of an interview about it at the beginning. I like it much better than the Cohen version, but I love the Cohen version too.

Sorry, but k.d. lang has covered "Hallelujah", and to paraphrase what Little Steven said about the Beatles and the Stones: "Once k.d. lang covers a song, it stays covered, baby!" Seriously, k.d.'s is the best version of that song I've heard, although I've not heard the one by Crow.

I heard a cover of Suzanne by an Edmonton band a few years back that left me drooling, but I can't remember the name of the band. It was like FAST and punk and amazing.
And while we're talking about back-up singers, sometimes I think LC goes a little overboard, Hallelujah being case-in-point. Roger Waters has been known to do the same thing on occasion.

Rufus is good but I greatly prefer the direct and unabashed sensuousness and seductiveness of Jeff Buckley's cover of Hallelujah. Rufus is better when singing his own material.

I can't seem to find a version (even by LC) where all the lyrics to Hallelujah are sung.

Listening to the incomparable Iranian singer, Parisa. (I know that some people consider her a brainless lightweight, but I've always liked her.)

You can hear some tracks of her from when she could sing well (from before the revolution) here:

http://www.parissa.org/musicsection/musicsec/audio/m3u/BeHarimehKhalvatehKhod.m3u

http://www.parissa.org/musicsection/musicsec/audio/m3u/TabeBanafshehDahad.m3u

These two are fairly accessible to the western ear.

(For some reason she's changed the English spelling of her name to "Parissa")

Actually, yes, you're right. In fact, Lang's was the first version I've heard, and I like it better than both Crow's and Cohen's. I'd forgotten though, since I don't have Lang's, but I have the other two. For some reason I wasn't able to find Lang's online at the time I was looking for them.

I know! I was looking for the lyrics online one time, and I don't think I've even found all the lyrics printed together. There are so many different versions, it makes me wonder whether each person who sings it drops a couple of verses and makes up one of their own.

The only problem with the Crow version, by the way, is that instead of singing, "minor fall and the major lift", she sings, "minor third, and the major fifth".

Major fifth? (Whoops, back to the snob thread!)

These are the two versions I've seen:

quote:
Hallelujah / Leonard Cohen

i heard there was a secret chord
that david played and it pleased the lord
but you don't really care for music, do you
well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
the baffled king composing hallelujah

hallelujah...

well your faith was strong but you needed proof
you saw her bathing on the roof
her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
she tied you to her kitchen chair
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew the hallelujah

hallelujah...

baby i've been here before
i've seen this room and i've walked this floor
i used to live alone before i knew you
i've seen your flag on the marble arch
but love is not a victory march
it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

hallelujah...

well there was a time when you let me know
what's really going on below
but now you never show that to me do you
remember when i moved in you
and the holy dove was moving too
and every breath we drew was hallelujah

well, maybe there's a god above
but all i've ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
it's not a cry that you hear at night
it's not somebody who's seen the light
it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

hallelujah...


quote:
Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

KMFDM - WWIII

I think this is the only album I have so far that samples G.W. Bush, and as much as I like KMFDM, I'd rather keep it that way. I have owned a few albums that sample Bush the elder, acquired during my teenaged tape-buying binge of the early 90s -- Ministry, Bad Religion, Consolidated, and other of KMFDM's colleagues in the sonic war on fascism.

Holy Jebus. If you're in Toronto, turn on the U of T campus radio station right now. CIUT-FM 89.5 FM. What the hell IS that?

I was just setting my alarm for tomorrow morning, and it's a clock radio. It's tuned to the U of T campus radio station (the one the Metro Morning crew were broadcasting from). So I turned it on to make sure the volume wasn't down, and man. That's really something else. Isn't that just something nice and comforting to help you nod off into sleepyland.

(For those reading this later, I think it's what people are talking about when they use the term "death metal". I mean, the guy isn't even singing, or even pretending to sing. It reminds me of those kids in school who used to be able to belch the whole alphabet. Except this is to guitars.)

John Wesley Harding - Dynablob (the first of his semi-regular collections of outtakes, demos and live tracks available only through his website.

FYI, Gord Downie also covered "Hallelujah" on the soundtrack for the Canadian film Saint Ralph (which, much to my surprise and delight, I caught on an Air Canada flight to Edmonton). I agree with those who favour k.d.'s version. Cohen is a great singer who can't sing.

Now I'm kind of curious as to what exactly it was, although the thing with university radio is that they rarely tell you. I get freaked out by the various labels given to subgenres of metal, cos I can never remember what exactly they mean. I like a lot of things now that not too long ago I couldn't see the point in (kind of like beer in that way ). I tend to like most of what I'm told is death metal though.

On the topic of the thread... I'm listening to "California" by Mr. Bungle right now. Mike Patton, rumored to be a total asshole, is a very talented singer.

Charlie Haden - Quartet West (1987)

Housesitting for my dad, who probably has more jazz albums than I have albums of any genre, which is a fairly large number. Pick an artist, any artist, vocal or instrumental, as long as they're moderately well-known -- he probably has something by that artist, and I'll listen to it next, unless I'm already familiar with it.

Solid Gold - James Brown

Presently listening to: "Get Up" (I feel like a sex machine). Favourite cuts: "Get Up", "The Payback", "Cold Sweat", and his classic, "Get Up Offa That Thing". Great, funky, stuff.

Aimee Mann - I'm with Stupid ('95)

The new HMV that's taken the place of the Virgin Megastore at Robson and Burrard (in Vancouver) has rather idiosyncratic selection. A few albums I haven't been able to find anywhere else. But unless you're getting new albums that you could find anywhere, they're really really pricey.

2004 was the year of Robyn Hitchcock for me -- I heard ten or so of his albums that year. 2005 is shaping up to be the year of Aimee Mann, who I really hadn't heard at all before.

Jeez! Did she just rhyme "manufacture" with "Margaret Thatcher"? It's the kind of thing I might imagine hearing, but it's also the kind of thing Aimee Mann would write.

Scarlatti - Infimata, vulnerata

Scarlatti, being my favourite composer (I'll admit to having a definitive love for all things Baroque). Alessandro, of course. I find that Domenico was too formulaic, although beautiful sounding...Too technical or something. Hard to put my finger on it. I argued to near death of the beauty of the man's operatic bits and lost my chance of a date. But I find justification in my vehement defence of all things from this period.

Come ON! If it had Bernini sculpting glorious works, it means that it was the VERY pinnacle of human spiritual-art culture.

But, at the bottom of it is Therion's KILLER "Secret of the Runes". The song Midgard is the greatest song ever made by humans...Although on "Crowning of Atlantis" they did do that cool cover of Manowar's Thor (The Powerhead).

I saw Therion live last week, complete with choir. Un-frikken-believable. I love those guys, and their lead female vocalist is amazing. No Tarja Turunen, but very very good.

Currently listening to Halford's 'Crucible' (aka, the best album Priest never made), getting ready to see them live on Friday.

Swans! Have you ever heard Neurosis and Jaorboe? It's so neat. (Fricking creepy sometimes also, but given the combination I think that'd be pretty obvious). I totally don't listen to Neurosisenough, considering how much I like them.

They Might Be Giants is the second-best band name in pop music history.

The best is, of course, the name of Van Morrison's old band. In one word, it summed up all the fear, loathing, paranoia, and secret, sneaking, guilty envy and self-projection rock 'n' roll inspired in parents of the time.

...Them!

Edit:

OK, this is bizarre. On account of another thread, I did a google search using "Garbo" and "I want to be alone." The second hit in the list was the official Van Morrison website.

That's it. I'm finishing my wine and going to bed.

Wild.


I heard Christian Death Metal (I'm not kidding) on our community radio station a few years ago, back when we had a Christian Rock program. Imagine that diesel-guitar sound and growlly "singing," with lyrics praising Jesus as Lord.

Apparently Death Metal and its hellish cousin, Black Metal, are quite popular among Norwegians, or at least Norway produces a disproportionate number of Death Metal, uh...artists. They seem to get their kicks by killing each other as well.

A radio station in a restaurant.

It started out fine with some Tin-Machine-era Bowie ("I know when to go out. I know when to stay in. I get things done."), but quickly went downhill, with the latest from the Backstreet Boys, and just when I thought it couldn't sink any lower, Nickelback.

Pulled back up slightly at the end, with U2's perhaps overly mellow anthem for stalkers that a couple I knew in high school said was "our song", from the same album as the song that Negativland lampooned so memorably in their '91 piece "U2" (memorable, but try finding a copy of that Negativland album after Island Records threatened to sue SST Records and got it taken off the shelves).

Ramones - Rocket to Russia

Pissy afternoon where little things going wrong. Internet connection, computer, phone line, old back problem flaring up again, sinus cold, and as I'm trying to fit the dishes into the dish drying tray, I yell, "Nothing fucking works! Nothing works at all! If something does work, it's fucking coincidence, because NOTHING FUCKING WORKS AT ALL!"

So I go to type up a reply to this thread about how this was an epiphany for me, even if perhaps on some level I already know it (basic Murphy's Law), and then my internet connection craps out again when I hit Add Reply, and I lose what I was writing. Now I've copied my reply so I can save it, which probably means it'll work this time (basic corollary of Murphy's Law: If Murphy's Law can go wrong, it will). Oh wait, the internet connection has cut out again.

[edited to more accurately convey the petty scale of the things I'm bitching about, because even though Michelle says her post wasn't directed at me, it might as well have been]

Now "Because I Got High" by Afroman. It still makes me giggle even though I've heard it way too many times.

"A Love Song For Bobby Long" is playing on TV on TMN, and I've got the music playing through my stereo. Awesome New Orleans music. Good movie, too.

edited to add: a great line in the film is this: "we cannot tear out a single page of our lives, but we can throw the whole book in the fire."

Trying to recover from brain fade - trying to remember the name of the song - by Gordon Lightfoot - with these lyrics: "the house that you live in will never grow old if you take in the stranger that stands by the door". It's right at the tip of my fingers, but I just can't get it. Help!

edited to add: instead of "...will never grow old" the correct lyrics might be "...will never fall down". I'm trying to remember which is right.

I don't quite know why I really like these guys, but a few of my friends from the Middle East that I've met this year absolutely adore them. This song is just so "yeeeeeeeeeee" feeling especially after a really crappy day.

If it's the same song I'm thinking of, Madeleine Peyroux does a cover of it on her most recent album (along with a cover of one song each by Cohen and Dylan). I love her voice -- she's kind of like the singer I wanted Nora Jones to be when I heard Nora Jones' cover of "Cold Cold Heart", the first thing I'd ever heard by her. Peyroux is an old-fashioned jazz vocalist with a strong vocal resemblance to Billie Holiday, but she has a nonetheless unique style (well, unique to me anyway) that's difficult to describe. I agree, "Between the Bars" is a haunting song.

my all-time favorite cover of "Suzanne" was by an African singer named Geoffrey Oryema. He sand it on the "I'm Your Fan" Cohen tribute compilation.

On another note, my all-time favorite cinematic usage of a Cohen song was the way "Sisters of Mercy" was played as the prostitutes arrived at the town of Presbyterian Church in MCCABE AND MRS. MILLER.
