• A Thousand Fiery Sun Songs

    OK, OK. Maybe just a dozen

    Another weather related list…February is supposed to be the dry season, but it’s been the wettest dry season I’ve experienced since living in Thailand. Could be global warming:-) I thought I’d break out the sun list and maybe coax the weather back on the right path.

    These are just a few favorite sun songs from my iTunes library.

    The Beatles – Here Comes the Sun
    The Beatles – Good Day Sunshine
    The Apples in Stereo – Sun Is Out
    Ednaswap – Back on the Sun
    Hoodoo Gurus – Place in the Sun
    The Kinks – Love Me Till The Sun Shines
    Matthew Sweet – Looking at the Sun
    Poi Dog Pondering – Circle Around the Sun
    Prince – Play in the Sunshine
    Semisonic – Sunshine And Chocolate
    Vanessa Daou – Waiting for the Sun to Rise
    Violent Femmes – Blister In The Sun

    There’s tons more sun songs out there. Let me know some of your favorites…
  • Prince - Sign O' The Times : Revisited

    14 Jul 2007, 20:39 de Babs_05

    Sign O' The Times arrived today as part of my annual big, fat Amazon order. This was the first compact disc I ever bought, the year it was released *gulp*... and it wasn't even for me, it was a present. If I am not mistaken, it cost me £16, which was a heck of a lot of money in 1987.

    I haven't listened to Sign O' The Times for absolutely years. At least ten, possibly fifteen. I am so pleased now to add it to my library. Quite rightly, it is considered his masterpiece. With the advent of his new album being given away free with one of tomorrow's Sunday papers, I have decided to have a Prince weekend.

    First track - Sign o' the Times - and what's on my mind? Bodymap tight-fitting clothes and trying to dance and look good at the same time in clubs! LOL!! We all knew the moves and couldn't resist trying them out; far too self-absorbed to notice if anyone else was better. (or was that just me?). I'm trying not to mention hair...

  • Name That Tune

    Put your media player on random and select a lyric from each of the first 30 songs that come up, then allow everyone to guess the song and cross a song off your list once it has been guessed correctly. (Using a search engine is CHEATING!)

    01. It's across the sky / and across my heart / and I cross my legs / Oh my God
    02. And I'll find out the answers / when I know what to ask / but I speak a different language
    03. The past is laughing as today just slips away
    04. This time, this time, turning white and senses dire
    05. Catch me when I fall / or you’ll need me when I’m not here at all
    06. I saw a spaceship fly by your window / did you see it disappear?
    07. You slide so good with bones so fair / You've got the universe reclining in your hair
    08.So many moons that we have seen / Stumbling back next to me
    09. We gonna love all our enemies / Til the gorilla falls off the wall
    10. I want your heart to bleed / And that’s all I’m asking for

    at 3:50 into the song Play in the Sunshine by Prince there is a riff featuring glockenspiel that sounds a lot like Frank Zappa. anybody heard this?
