Florence and the machine - dog days are over

Happiness hit her like a train on a track
Coming towards her stuck still no turning back
She hid around corners and she hid under beds
She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
With every bubble she sank with her drink
And washed it away down the kitchen sink

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming
So you better run

Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your longing behind
You cant carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
Because here they come

And I never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had and what was left after that too, oh
Happiness hit her like a bullet in the head
Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
Because here they come

Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your loving, your loving behind
You cant carry it with you if you want to survive

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
Because here they come

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming
So you better run

Midlake - acts of man

If all that grows
Starts to fade, starts to falter
Oh let me inside, let me inside not to wake

Let all that run
Through the fields, through the quiet
Go on with their own
On with their own hidden ways

When all the newness
Of gold travels far from
Where it had once been
Worn like the earth over years

And when the acts of man
Cause the ground to break open
Oh let me inside, let me inside not to wake

Great are the sounds of all that live
And all that man can hold

If all that grows
Starts to fade, starts to falter
Oh let me inside, let me inside not to wake

Great are the sounds of all that live
And all that man can hold

Marina and the Diamonds - Mowgli's Road

Cuckoo (cuckoo)
Cuckoo (cuckoo)
Cuckoo (cuckoo)
Cuckoo

Ten silver spoons coming after me,
One life with one dream on repeat.
I'll escape if I try hard enough,
Till King of the Jungle calls my bluff

Oh Lord (Oh Lord)
I have been told (I have been told)
That I must take the unforsaken road (forsaken road)
There's a fork in the road (road)
I'll do as I am told
And I don't know, don't know, don't know, don't, don't
Who-oo-oo-oo-ooo I want to be

Cuckoo (cuckoo)
Cuckoo (cuckoo)
Cuckoo (cuckoo, cuckoo)

You say Y-E-S to everything
Will that guarantee you a win?
Do you think you will be good enough
To love others and to be loved?

Oh Lord (Oh Lord),
Now I can see (now I can see)
The cutlery will keep on chasing me (forsaken road)
There's a fork in the road (road)
I'll do as I am told
And I don't know, don't know, don't know, don't don't
Who-oo-oo-oo-ooo I want to be.

We are the spoons metally mean.
We scooped our way into your dreams
To knock the knives out bloody cold.
And lead you down the unforsaken road.

[whistle]

(Unforsaken road)
There's a fork in the road (road)
I'll do as I am told
And I don't know, don't know, don't know, don't don't
Who-oo-oo-oo-ooo I want to be.

Gorillaz - Stylo

Stylo is de eerste single uit het nieuwe album 'plastic beach' en werd samen met Bobby Womack & rapper Mos Def opgenomen. Even rechtzetten: Bobby Womach is NIET een van de twee womach and womach's, maar wel familie...

love electricity,

a raw cat though raw and easy,

overload, overload, overload,
coming up to the,

oh stylo, (juice)
go forth,
blossom in your soul,
when you know your heart is light,
electric is the love.

when the mako flies, (a giant fish)
up from the bottom,
in your eyes,
then I know the twilight skies,
are not so broken hearted. (from the end of the line)

It's its love of electric,
it'll be flowing on the streets,
night after night,
just to get through the week,
sometimes it's hard.

right now.

single cell, (juice)
out of depression,

always searching,
if I know your heart,
electric is the love.

there's only one way,
let it pray a little while longer,
it's got a way of passing through man and woman,
in another world,
in another world in the universe.
ooohhhhhhhh

right now here's what we got to do,
it's its love of electric,
it'll be flowing on the streets,
night after night,
just to get through the week,

Eels - A Line In The Dirt

She locked herself in the bathroom again
So I am pissing in the yard
I have to laugh when I think how far it's gone
But things aren't funny any more

I drew a line into the dirt
And dared her to step right across it
And she did

So I am knocking on the door again
I say, 'Do you want to be alone?'
She says, 'No I don't wanna be alone
But I think that you do

I drew a line into the dirt
And dared her to step right across it
And she did

And I know she's right, I know how it would be
If I had my own way with the world
As I know it should be

She locked herself in the bathroom again
So I've been shutting down the lights
And I don't know if I'll ever go back again
I'm drivin' straight into the night

I drew a line into the dirt
And dared her to step right across it
And she did

Muse, uprising

De nieuwe single van Muse heet 'uprising'. Het is een bombastisch nummer dat sterk doet denken aan Queen. Helemaal Muse maar toch anders.

Hoe het album gaat klinken, kom je alvast via volgend youtube fimpje te weten.

Lyrics:

The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
The transmissions will resume
They’ll try to push drugs
Keep us all dumbed down and hope that
We will never see the truth around
(So come on!)

Another promise, another scene, another
A package not to keep us trapped in greed
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
(So come on!)

Chorus
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Interchanging mind control
Come let the revolution take its toll if you could
Flick the switch and open your third eye, you’d see that
We should never be afraid to die
(So come on!)

Rise up and take the power back, it’s time that
The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
Their time is coming to an end
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

Chorus
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Hey .. hey … hey .. hey!
(repeat)

Chorus
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Hey .. hey … hey .. hey!
(repeat)

Eels, that look you give that guy (lyrics)

I never thought that I could be so bold
To even say these thoughts aloud
I see you with your man
Your eyes just shine
While he stands tall
And walking proud

That look you give that guy
I wanna see
Looking right at me
If I could be that guy
Instead of me
I'd never let you down

It always seems like you're going somewhere
Better than you've been before
While I go to sleep and I dream all night
Of you knocking at my door

That look you give that guy
I wanna see
Looking right at me
If I could be that guy
Instead of me
I'd be all I can be

I'm nothing like what I'd like to be
I'm nothing much I know it's true
I lack the style and the pedigree
And my chances are so few

That look you give that guy
I wanna see
Looking right at me
If I could be that guy
Instead of me
I'd give you all I got

I never thought that I could be so bold
To even say these thoughts aloud
But it, let's say, it won't work out
You know where I can be found

That look you give that guy
I wanna see
Looking right at me
If I could be that guy
Instead of me
I'd never let you down

Peter Fox - House am see (lyrics en clip)

Hier bin ich gebor`n und laufe durch die Straßen!
Kenn die Gesichter, jedes Haus und jeden Laden!
Ich muss mal weg, kenn jede Taube hier beim Namen.
Daumen raus ich warte auf ne schicke Frau mit schnellem Wagen.
Die Sonne blendet alles fliegt vorbei.
Und die Welt hinter mir wird langsam klein.
Doch die Welt vor mir ist für mich gemacht!
mhm
Ich weiß sie wartet und ich hol sie ab!
Ich hab den Tag auf meiner Seite ich hab Rückenwind!
Ein Frauenchor am Straßenrand der für mich singt!
Ich lehne mich zurück und guck ins tiefe Blau,
schließ die Augen und lauf einfach geradeaus.

Und am Ende der Straße steht ein Haus am See.
Orangenbaumblätter liegen auf dem Weg.
Ich hab 20 Kinder meine Frau ist schön.
mmmmh
Alle kommen vorbei ich brauch nie rauszugehen.

Ich suche neues Land
mit unbekannten Straßen, fremde Gesichtern und keiner kennt meinen Namen!
Alles gewinnen beim Spiel mit gezinkten Karten.
Alles verlieren, Gott hat einen harten linken Haken.
Ich grabe Schätze aus im Schnee und Sand.
Und Frauen rauben mir jeden Verstand!
Doch irgendwann werd ich vom Glück verfolgt.
mmhmm
Und komm zurück mit beiden Taschen voll Gold.
Ich lad' die alten Vögel und Verwandten ein.
ouuu
Und alle fang` vor Freude an zu weinen.
Wir grillen, die Mamas kochen und wir saufen Schnaps.
Und feiern eine Woche jede Nacht.

Und der Mond scheint hell auf mein Haus am See.
Orangenbaumblätter liegen auf dem Weg.
Ich hab 20 Kinder meine Frau ist schön.
mmmh
Alle kommen vorbei ich brauch nie rauszugehen.

(Im Traum gesehn, das Haus am See)

Und am Ende der Straße steht ein Haus am See.
Orangenbaumblätter liegen auf dem Weg.
Ich hab 20 Kinder meine Frau ist schön.
Alle kommen vorbei ich brauch nie rauszugehen.

Hier bin ich gebor`n, hier werd ich begraben.
Hab taube Ohr`n, `nen weißen Bart und sitz im Garten.
Meine 100 Enkel spielen Cricket aufm Rasen.
Wenn ich so daran denke kann ich`s eigentlich kaum erwarten…

Bat for lashes - Daniel

Daniel when I first saw you
I knew that you had a flame in your heart
And under under our blue skies
Marble movie skies
I found a home in your eyes
We'll never be apart

And when the fires came
The smell of cinders and rain
Perfumed almost everything
We laughed and laughed and laughed
And in the golden blue
Cryin' took me to the darkest place
And you have set fire to my heart

When I run in the dark, Daniel
To a place that's worst ?
Under a sheet of rain in my heart
Daniel
I dream of home

But in a goodbye bed
With my arms around your neck
Into our love the tears crept
Just catch in the eye of the storm
And as my heart ran round
My dreams pulled me from the ground
Forever to search for the flame
For home again
For home again

When I run in the dark, Daniel
To a place that's worst?
Under a sheet of rain in my heart
Daniel
I dream of home

When I run in the dark, Daniel
To a place that's worst
Under a sheet of rain in my heart
Daniel
I dream of home

Discobitch, c'est beau la bourgeoisie !

I'm a bitch... ... I'm a bitch...

Refrain
C'est pour la petite bourgeoisie qui boit du champagne,
C'est pour tous les quotas francais que j'parle plus anglais,
I'm not crazy, I'm just fond of you,
And all the piles of money that grows next to you.
C'est pour la petite bourgeoisie qui flâne à Hawaï
Qui s'paie les bulles diamants, la coupe de champagne
I'm not crazy, i'm just fond of you,
And all the piles of money that grows next to you

Just recordin' that track for all the bitches out there,
Shakin' their ass like they just don't care (care)
Like they just don't care

T'as passé ta vie à prendre ton temps,
Du fric en masse que tu caches dans tes gants
Craqué jusqu'aux dents tu claques la caisse des parents
Pour rentrer dans les soirées d'célib moins d' 30 ans.

[Refrain]

I'm a bitch (x3)
La coupe pour moi si tu comptes pas le prix dedans
Faudra pas trimer pour t'faire cracher le billet de 100
Y'a des choses qui n'ont pas de prix,
Comme le dernier sac Versace.

I'm just recordin' that track for all the bitches out there,
Shaking their ass like they just don't care,
Like they just don't care

Lalalala

I'm just recording a track for all the bitches out there,
Shaking their ass like they just don't care,
Oh, they just don't care,
They just don't care,

J'aimerai boire, un verre, de boisson, de champagne

C'est pour la petite, ...
Qui boit du champagne

[Refrain]

Duffy, Stepping Stone (lyrics en clip)

i remember way, way back when
i said i never wanna see your face again
cause you were loving, yes you were someone else
and i knew, yes i knew i couldn't control myself
and now they bring you back into my life again
and so i put on face just like your friends
but i think you know, oh yes you know whats going on
cause the feelings in me, oh yes in me are burning strong.

but i will never be your stepping stone,
take it all or leave me alone,
i will never be your stepping stone,
im standing upright on my own.

you still call me up from time to time
and it would be so hard for me not to cross the line
the words of love lye on my lips just like a curse
and i knew, oh yes i knew they'd only make it worse
and now you have the nerve to play along
just like the mistro beats in your song
you got your kicks, you get your kicks from playing me
and the less you give the more i want, so foolishly.

but i will never be your stepping stone,
take it all or leave me alone,
i will never be your stepping stone,
im standing upright on my own.

Lily Allen - Everyone's at it (lyrics)

I don't know much,
But I know this for certain,
That is the sun,
Poking its head round the curtain.

Now please can we leave,
I'd like to go to bed now.
It's not just the sun,
That is hurting my head now.

I'm not trying to say,
That I'm smelling of roses,
But when will we tire,
Of putting shit up our noses.

I don't like staying up,
Staying up past the sunlight.
It's meant to be fun,
And this just doesn't feel right.

Why can't we all,
All just be honest,
Admit to ourselves,
That everyone's on it.

From grown politicians,
To young adolescents,
Prescribing themselves,
Anti-depressants.

How can we start to tackle the problem,
If you don't put your hands up,
And admit that you're on them.

The kids are in danger,
They're all getting habits,
Because from what I can see,
Everyone's at it.
Everyone's at it.
Everyone's at it.
Everyone's at it.

I get involved,
But I'm not advocating.
Got an opinion,
Yeah, you're well up for slating.

So you've got a prescription,
And that makes it legal.
I find the excuses,
Overwhelmingly feeble.

You go to the doctor,
You need pills to sleep in.
Well if you can convince him,
Then I guess that's not cheating.

So your daughter's depressed,
We'll get her straight on the prozac.
But little do you know,
She already takes crack.

Why can't we all,
All just be honest,
Admit to ourselves,
That everyone's on it.

From grown politicians,
To young adolescents,
Prescribing themselves,
Anti-depressants.

How can we start to tackle the problem,
If you don't put your hands up,
And admit that you're on them.

The kids are in danger,
They're all getting habits,
Because from what I can see,
Everyone's at it.
Everyone's at it.
Everyone's at it.
Everyone's at it.

Why can't we all,
All just be honest,
Admit to ourselves,
That everyone's on it.

From grown politicians,
To young adolescents,
Prescribing themselves,
Anti-depressants.

How can we start to tackle the problem,
If you don't put your hands up,
And admit that you're on them.

The kids are in danger,
They're all getting habits,
Because from what I can see,
Everyone's at it.
Everyone's at it.
Everyone's at it.
Everyone's at it.

Chris Isaak, Wicked game (1989)

Wicked game is een nummer over obsessieve liefde en werd pas bekend nadat de instrumentale versie te horen was in de film "wild at heart" van David Lynch. Later werd de song gebruikt in een commercial voor de Jaguar X-type en in een episode van Friends, wanneer Rachel en Ross voor de eerste keer de liefde bedrijven.

De videoclip in wit/zwart werd gemaakt door modefotograaf Herb Ritts en won diverse prijzen. In de clip verleidt model Helena Christensen Isaak op een strand.

Zelf heb ik het nummer toendertijd grijs gedraaid. Zonder enige schroom kan ik zeggen: het is een van de weinige liefdesliedjes die ik echt goed vind.


The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do.
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I knew somebody like you.

No, I don't want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don't want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you. With you. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)

What a wicked game you play, to make me feel this way.
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you.
What a wicked thing to say, you never felt this way.
What a wicked thing to do, to make me dream of you and,

I want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you.

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do.
I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you no,

No, I want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I want to fall in love. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you. (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I... (This girl is only gonna break your heart)
(This girl is only gonna break your heart)

Nobody loves no one.

Kaiser Chiefs, Good days bad days

Follow the underdog
Hold on his collar tight
This city loves a scrap
One day its gonna fight

Sticks and stones and animal bones
Cant stop me from having a good day on a bad day
There’s good days and bad days

Making a night of it
Breaking the barriers
Drowning the sorrows
Upset the regulars

Sticks and stones and animal bones
Can’t stop me from getting away with
Good days and bad days
There’s good days and bad days

Oooah hey hey, hey hey
Hey hey, hey hey
Oooah hey hey, hey hey
Hey hey, hey hey

(Good days and bad days)

Sticks and stones and animal bones
Sticks and stones and animal bones
There’s good days and bad days
There’s good days and bad days

Hey hey, hey hey
Hey hey, hey hey
Hey hey, hey hey
Hey hey, hey hey

If you had a different attitude
Instead of taking taking to
You have missed an opportunity
And that’s a really big mistake
If you had a different attitude
You’d still have good days and bad days

Hey hey hey

U2, Get on your boots (nieuwe single)

'Get on your boots', dat oorspronkelijk 'sexy boots' noemde, is de eerste single van U2 uit 'no line on the horizon'. Het is een redelijk a-typisch U2 nummer geworden met zijn ruwe gitaarriff en hiphopbeat. Persoonlijk vind ik hem redelijk geslaagd, met uitzondering van het refrein. Maar dat zal, na een aantal luisterbeurten, best wennen.

Link :
Je kan de single hier beluisteren.

De lyrics :
Future needs a big kiss
Winds blow with a twist
Never seen a move like this
Can you see it too
Night is falling everywhere
Rockets hit the funfair
Satan loves a bomb scare
But it won't scare you

Hey...Sexy Boots
Get on your Boots
Yeah...

Free me from the dark dream
Candy bars, ice cream
All the kids are screaming but the ghosts arent real
Heres what you gotta be
Love & community
Laughter is eternity if the joy is real

You dont know how beautiful
You dont know how beautiful
You are...
You dont know
You get it do you
You dont know
How beautiful you are...

If someones into blowing up
Were into growing up
Women are the future
All the big revelations
Ive gotta submarine
Youve got gasoline
I dont wanna talk about wars between nations
Not right now

Sexy Boots
Get on your Boots
Yeah...
Foxy boots

You dont know how beautiful
You dont know how beautiful
You are...

Sexy Boots
I dont wanna talk about wars

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
My God Im going down
I dont wanna drown now
Let me in the sound

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound

Get on your Boots
Get on your Boots
Yeah...

David Bowie, Space oddity (1969)

Mijn hele jeugd lang ben ik onderworpen geweest aan de terreur die David Bowie noemt. Mijn pa was er gek op en dus mocht ik, als kleine lillyputter, "meegenieten". Niet verwonderlijk dus dat ik er een degout van had. Na de dood van mijn pa heeft het lang geduurd eer ik weer naar David Bowie kon luisteren. Te veel pijnlijke herinneringen... maar dit even terzijde.

Als ik 1 nummer zou moeten kiezen uit de enorme Bowie-collectie, dan kies ik zonder aarzelen voor "Space Oddity", een nummer uit 1969. Het nummer vertelt het verhaal van Major Tom, een fictief astronaut die tijdens een space-missie depressief wordt. Hij verbreekt elk contact met de aarde en laat zich wegzweven in de oneindigheid van het heelal.

Opmerkelijk:

- Het nummer werd uitgebracht ten tijde van de maanlanding door Apollo 11 en werd ondermeer door de BBC als "soundtrack" gebruikt tijdens de uitzendingen erover.
- Inspiratie voor het nummer haalde David Bowie bij Stanley Kubrick's film "A space Odyssey".
- In 1980 komt er een follow-up in "ashes to ashes". Major Tom contacteert de aarde en verklaart dat hij "happy in space" is.
- Ook andere artiesten breien een vervolg aan het verhaal. Peter Schilling neemt in 1983 "Major Tom (I'm Coming Home)." op en in 2003 is het de beurt aan K.I.A. die in "Mrs. Major Tom" het verhaal vanuit het standpunt van de echtgenote laat zien.
- Omdat er in het nummer sprake is van "floating" zien velen er een verwijzing naar een drug-verslaafde in. Volgens hen gaat het nummer niet over een astronaut maar wel over een junkie. Het is maar hoe je het bekijkt natuurlijk.

Lyrics

Ground control to Major Tom
Ground control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on

Ground control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God's love be with you

(spoken)
Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, liftoff

This is ground control to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirt you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is Major Tom to ground control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much she knows

Ground control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you...

Here am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Bloc Party, One month off

Een heus sprookje...

Well there were 7 years between us seems that all my friends were right
That we can’t survive on your bedroom eyes and a Spanish guitar
When we started this it was paradise, not just Bethnal green
And it’s just not right this waiting game, making a cuckold of me

I can be as cruel as you
Fighting fire with firewood
I can be as cruel as you
Fighting lies with lies
If you need time…

And it’s just not like me to lash out, but enough is enough
Tell me what the others can do that I cant
Translucent and sun bleached skin, when did you get so LA
How can you desert me after all we’ve been through
Stuck on a dream that somewhere its better
You’ll be the one missing out

I can be a cruel as you
Fighting fire with firewood
I can be as cruel as you
Fighting lies

Lies

If you need time…

Kerli - Walking on air

There's a little creepy house in a little creepy place
Little creepy town in a little creepy world
Little creepy girl with her little creepy face
Saying funny things that you have never heard

Do you know what it's all about
Are you brave enough to figure out
Know that you could set your world on fire
If you are strong enough to leave your doubts

Feel it
Breathe it
Believe it and you'll be walking on air
Go try
Go fly so high and you'll be walking on air
You feel this unless you kill this
Go on and you're forgiven
I knew that I could feel that
I feel like I am walking on air
Yeah

She has a little creepy cat and a little creepy bat
Little rocking chair and an old blue hat
That little creepy girl
Oh
She loves to sing
She has a little gift
An amazing thing

With her little funny eyes of hazel
With her little funny old blue hat she will go and set the world on fire
No one ever thought she could do that

Feel it
Breathe it
Believe it and you'll be walking on air
Go try
Go fly so high and you'll be walking on air
You feel this unless you kill this
Go on and you're forgiven
I knew that I could feel that
I feel like I am walking on air

Flitter up and hover down
Be all around
Be all around

You know that I love you
Go on

Feel it
Breathe it
Believe it and you'll be walking on air
Go try
Go fly so high and you'll be walking on air
You feel this unless you kill this
Go on and you're forgiven
I knew that I could feel that
I feel like I am walking on air

I am walking on air
(Walking on air)
Yeah

Lily Allen, The Fear

Lily Allen is back en hoe ! The Fear is de eerste single uit haar langverwachte album dat begin volgend jaar verschijnt. Nu al is duidelijk: het wachten op meer lekkers zal een kwelling zijn.
In 'the fear' ziet Lily haar toekomstig leventje als een sprookje. Niet 'ze leefde lang en gelukkig', maar 'ze was rijk en beroemd' primeert daarbij.
'The fear' valt op door de schitterende lyrics (zie hieronder), de prachtige clip en de muziek/zang zelf. Waren we maar al een paar maand verder...

 

I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don’t care about clever I don’t care about funny
I want loads of clothes and f***loads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them
I’ll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
‘Cuz everyone knows that’s how you get famous
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah I’m on to a winner
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When we think it will all become clear
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear
Life’s about film stars and less about mothers
It’s all about fast cars and passing each other
But it doesn’t matter cause I’m packing plastic
and that’s what makes my life so f***ing fantastic
And I am a weapon of massive consumption
and its not my fault it’s how I’m program to function
I’ll look at the sun and I’ll look in the mirror
I’m on the right track yeah I’m on to a winner
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When we think it will all become clear
‘Cuz I’m being taken over by The Fear
Forget about guns and forget ammunition
Cause I’m killing them all on my own little mission
Now I’m not a saint but I’m not a sinner
Now everything is cool as long as I’m getting thinner
I don’t know what’s right and what’s real anymore
I don’t know how I’m meant to feel anymore
When we think it will all become clear
‘Cause I’m being taken over by fear

De eerste sneeuw (Jan de Wilde)

Ik werd heel langzaam wakker, ik wreef m'n ogen uit,
ik werd heel langzaam wakker, ik wreef m'n ogen uit,
ik kon het niet geloven, maar voor de vensterruit,
viel zacht naar beneden, de eerste sneeuw.
Mijn mama kwam naar boven, 't Is tijd om op te staan,
mijm mama kwam naar boven, kom trek je kleren aan,
mama, lieve mama, kijk eens naar beneden,
ga je met mij mee, in de eerste sneeuw.
Kijk eens naar omhoog en kijk
de lucht is grijs en zit vol vlokken
'k wou dat dit kon blijven duren
dat het nooit meer zou stoppen.
'k Voel me zo gelukkig in de eerste sneeuw,
'k Voel me zo gelukkig in de eerste sneeuw.
Waar is mijn wollen muts nu, waar is mijn dikke sjaal,
waar is mijn wollen muts nu, waar is mijn dikke sjaal,
en ergens in de kelder ligt toch nog die slee,
papa moet me duwen door de eerste sneeuw.
Kijk eens naar omhoog en kijk
de lucht is grijs en zit vol vlokken
'k wou dat dit kon blijven duren
dat het nooit meer zou stoppen.
'k Voel me zo gelukkig in de eerste sneeuw,
'k Voel me zo gelukkig in de eerste sneeuw.
Nu twintig jaren later, heb ik geen zin om op te staan,
nu twintig jaren later, kijk ik weer uit het raam,
mijn mama zal niet komen, mijn mama is lang dood,
ze ligt al lang beneden, in de eerste sneeuw.
Kijk eens omhoog en kijk de lucht is grijs en zit vol vlokken.
'k Wou dat dit kon blijven duren,
dat het nooit meer zou stoppen.
'k Voel me zo alleen in de eerste sneeuw,
'k Voel me zo alleen in de eerste sneeuw,
in de eerste sneeuw

Elbow, The bones of you

So I'm there
Charging around with a juggernaut brow
Overdraft, speeches and deadlines to make
Cramming commitments like cats in a sack
Telephone burn and a purposeful gait

When out of a doorway the tentacles stretch
Of a song that I know
And the world moves in slow-mo
Straight to my head
like the first cigarette of the day

And it's you, and it's May
And we're sleeping through the day
And I'm five years ago
And three thousand miles away

Do I have
time? A man of my calibre
Stood in the street like a sleepwalking teenager
No.
And I dealt with this years ago
I took a hammer to every memento
But image on image like beads on a rosary
pulled through my head as the music takes hold
and the sickener hits; I can work till I break
but I love the bones of you
That, I will never escape

And it's you, and it's May
And we're sleeping through the day
And I'm five years ago
And three thousand miles away

And I can't move my arm
Through the fear that you will wake
And I'm five years ago
And three thousand miles away

The Killers, Human

Are we human?
Or are we dancer?
My sign is vital
My hands are cold
And I'm on my knees
Looking for the answers
Are we human?
Or are we dancer?

Will your system be alright
When you dream of home tonight?
There is no message we're receiving
Let me know is your heart still beating

Are we human?
Or are we dancer?
My sign is vital
My hands are cold
And I'm on my knees
Looking for the answers

You got to let me know

Are we human?
Or are we dancer?
My sign is vital
My hands are cold
And I'm on my knees
Looking for the answers
Are we human
Or are we dancer?

Are we human?
Or are we dancer?

Are we human
Or are we dancer?

Martina Topley Bird, Baby Blue

I don't think you should wait nor a minute more
'Cause che's a girl that you've been waiting for
Funny how the noises that I'm making
Can't drown the sound of my heart breaking

Baby Blue
I don't know what to do when you call to me
Baby Blue
I never really knew I belonged to you.

Just one brief glance was all that I needed to
Believe that you might feel what I feel for you
In the night I wake up after breathing
No fish (?), you're calling to me in my dreaming

Baby Blue
I don't know what to do when you call to me
Baby Blue
I never really knew I belonged to you

No ageless trance will rush up to meet me and feign
The love will remain

Baby Blue
I don't know what to do when you call to me
Baby Blue
I never really knew I belonged to you

For pleasure glows if only I find a blue (?)
In the night, into his room
Brush his lips, wait 'till the morning
In his eyes a new love dawning

Baby Blue
I don't know what to do when you call to me
Baby Blue
I never really knew I belonged to you

Little Jackie, The World Should Revolve Around Me

I take it in stride one day at a time,
if i ask no questions i hear no lies,
how come blessings only come in disguise,
i try to emphasize as i vocalize,
ain't nothin gonna get between me and my flow,
ain't nothin gonna come between me and my Afro.
my man just left what do ya know,
easy come easy go,
he came out of the blue,
and went right back into it,
he had to forfeit cause he couldn't get with it,
called it quits and when he split
he said he didn't have time
for my juvenial bull shit,

I've had enough failed relationships
I dont get far cause I'm not equiped
I believe that the world should revolve around me
I'm to the point of a partnership,
it wont be long till I start to trip,
yes sir the world should revolve around me,

there's only one me in the galaxy,
I am an indangered species,
this kind of flower don't grow on earth
just lettin ya know for what it's worth
this kind of action can cause a
not for nothin but what came first
the chicken nugget or the egg mc muffin
I got talent and I got tits,
I know I'll find another guy that wants to get with it,
I'm not convinced that im a
one mans pleasure is another mans chore,

I've had a lot of failed relationships,
I dont get far cause I'm not equipped
I believe that the world should revolve around me,
I'm to the point of a partnership
it wont be long till i start to trip,
yes sir the whole world should revolve around me,

I know I rock and what I got is hot,
you know I got a lot,
cause all that trippin you've got to stop
before you know it your ass be droppin
in turn with my biological clock,
since I never grow old no,
keep screwin that bitch from down the block,
I dont need you around I know i rock,

I've had alot of failed relationships,
I don't get far cause I'm not equipped,
I believe that the world should revolve around me,
I'm to the point of a partnership,
it wont be long till i start to trip,
yes sir the whole world should revolve around me.

Lykke Li, Breaking it up

Artiestenpagina - Lykke Li

If you're going abroad I can't help you
If you're crossing the street I might be there

If you give it a minute it's gone
If you give it a minute it's wrong
If we're just waiting a second too long
Darling I'll leave and you won't come along

So give me the reason to stay
Give me the reason to wait
You know I don't look to get caught
'Cause darling we're here but my true love is not

I'm breaking it up, before it's on
Breaking it up, it's already gone
Breaking it up, I didn't mean to fraud
Breaking it up

If you're going abroad I can't help you
If you're crossing the street I might be there

And I call you baby I will and I do
Persuade you in though I know that we're through
I let you think that I'm yours when I'm not
Keep you here though I'm ready to drop the last line

I'm breaking it up, before it's on
Breaking it up, it's already gone
Breaking it up, I didn't mean to fraud
Breaking it up

If you're going abroad I can't help you
If you're crossing the street I might be there

Breaking it up
Breaking it up

The Kaiser Chiefs, Never miss a beat


Kaiser Chiefs, Live @ Werchter 2008 (Never miss a beat)

What did you learn today?
I learned nothin
What did you do today?
I did nothin
What did you learn at school?
I didn't go
Why didn't you go to school?
I don't know

It's cool to know nothin
(x2)

Television's on the blink
There's nothin on it
I really want to really big coat
With words on it
What do you want for tea?
I want crisps
Why didn't you join the team?
I just didn't

It's cool to know nothin
(x2)

Take a look, take a look, take a look
at the kids on the street
No they never miss a beat
No they never miss a beat
Never miss a beat
Never miss a beat, beat, beat, beat
Take a look at the kids on the street
No they never miss a beat
No they never miss a beat
Never miss a beat
Never miss a
Never miss a beat
Never miss a beat

Here comes the referee
The light's flashin
Best bit of the day
Now that's livin
Why don't you run away?
Are you kiddin?
What is the golden rule?
You say nothin

It's cool to know nothin
(x2)

Take a look, take a look, take a look
at the kids on the street
No they never miss a beat
No they never miss a beat
Never miss a beat
Never miss a beat, beat, beat, beat
Take a look at the kids on the street
No they never miss a beat
No they never miss a beat
Never miss a beat
Never miss a
Never miss a beat
Never miss a beat

Take a look, take a look, take a look
at the kids on the street
No they never miss a beat
No they never miss a beat
Never miss a beat
Never miss a beat, beat, beat, beat
Take a look at the kids on the street
No they never miss a beat
No they never miss a beat
Never miss a beat
Never miss a
Never miss a beat
Never miss a beat

Dirty eyes

Songteksten, je kan er uren over doorbomen. Vanochtend bijvoorbeeld las ik in de krant (het nieuwsblad) een artikel over de favoriete lichaamsdelen.

Het deed me denken aan bepaalde liedjes:
Prince zong ooit 'sexy motherfucker shaking her ass'. Neil Young heeft het in 'like a hurricane' over 'brown eyes turning once to fire' en NERD verwoordt het als 'her ass is a spaceship i want to ride'. Over andere lichaamsdelen ('heuveltjes van Erica') zullen we maar zwijgen.

Opmerkelijk (hoewel het niet echt verrassend is) is dat rappers het vooral hebben over het achterwerk (ass, butt, booty), terwijl rockers eerder aandacht hebben voor de ogen ('gipsy eyes', 'angel eyes', 'dirty eyes' ).

Het volledige artikel :

Shut your eyes zingt Snow Patrol. Jimi Hendrix had het over Gipsy eyes , Abba over Angel eyes en AC/DC over Dirty eyes . Jawel, ogen zijn bij uitstek het meest favoriete lichaamsdeel om over te zingen. Dat blijkt uit het project van Fernanda Viégas en Martin Wattenberg, dat wetenschap, informatica en kunst aan elkaar koppelt. Het duo legde tienduizend songteksten onder de loep en ging op zoek naar verschillen wat betreft de meest bezongen lichaamsdelen in elf verschillende muziekgenres.

Het oog komt voor in 11,83 procent van de rocksongs, de hand in 13,66 procent van de gospelsongs en in 8,93 procent van de bluessongs. Het achterwerk is vertegenwoordigd in 23,64 procent van de rapsongs. Neem naast dat percentage voor ass , ook nog eens 2,77 procent voor butt en 2,31 procent voor booty , plus de scores voor dick (8,22 procent) en pussy (5,36 procent) en het is duidelijk welke lichaamszone rappers het best kan inspireren.

Grappig is ook om te zien dat geen enkel genre het zoveel heeft over lichaamsdelen als rap. Maak de optelsom voor dat genre en je komt uit bij een vijftigtal verschillende woorden die naar het lichaam verwijzen. Kijk naar gospel en je vindt er slechts een vijftiental. Of is dat louter omdat de rappers spitsvonderiger zijn qua taalgebruik?

In elk geval loont het de moeite om naar de Fleshmapwebsite van het Viégas en Wattenberg te surfen, want daar openbaart hun Listen -onderzoek zich zoals het hoort. Want waar het de twee uiteindelijk vooral om te doen is, is de visualisatie van gegevens: voor elk genre kwamen ze tot een cirkel met foto's. Op de site kan je ook je eigen songtekst door hun programma halen. Het filtert er alle lichaamsdelen uit en geeft je tekst visueel weer met een rijtje foto's.

Kings of Leon - Sex on Fire

Lay where you're laying
Don't make a sound
I know they're watching
They're watching

All the commotion
That kitty loves pain
It has people talking
They're talking

You
Your sex is on fire

The dark of the alley
The breaking of day
The head while I'm driving
I'm driving

The soft lips are open
Them knuckles are pale
It feels like you're dying
You're dying

And you
Your sex is on fire
And so
Were the words to transpire

Hot as a fever
Rattling bones
I could just taste it
Taste it

If it's not forever
If it's just tonight
Oh it's still the greatest
The greatest
The greatest

And you
Your sex is on fire

You
Your sex is on fire
And so
Were the words to transpire

And you
Your sex is on fire
And so
Were the words to transpire

Neil Young, Sugar Mountain

Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons,
You cant be twenty on sugar mountain
Though youre thinking that youre leaving there too soon,
Youre leaving there too soon.

Its so noisy at the fair
But all your friends are there
And the candy floss you had
And your mother and your dad.

Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons,
You cant be twenty on sugar mountain
Though youre thinking that youre leaving there too soon,
Youre leaving there too soon.

Theres a girl just down the aisle,
Oh, to turn and see her smile.
You can hear the words she wrote
As you read the hidden note.

Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons,
You cant be twenty on sugar mountain
Though youre thinking that youre leaving there too soon,
Youre leaving there too soon.

Now youre underneath the stairs
And youre givin back some glares
To the people who you met
And its your first cigarette.

Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons,
You cant be twenty on sugar mountain
Though youre thinking that youre leaving there too soon,
Youre leaving there too soon.

Now you say youre leavin home
cause you want to be alone.
Aint it funny how you feel
When youre findin out its real?

Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons,
You cant be twenty on sugar mountain
Though youre thinking that youre leaving there too soon,
Youre leaving there too soon.

Oh, to live on sugar mountain
With the barkers and the colored balloons,
You cant be twenty on sugar mountain
Though youre thinking that youre leaving there too soon,
Youre leaving there too soon.
