    Delta
    Spirit - Bushwick Blues

    Hold on to my hand
    Never let go
    Never let go
    We were just two kids acting tough
    Then we grew up
    Me, not so much

    All the other guys that you've seen
    are nothing compared to me
    Because my love is strong
    And my heart is weak
    After all

    When we first met
    We spoke so brief
    When you sang a sonnet
    I hummed sweet relief
    Do you recall that night we took the L
    Out into Bushwick
    It was colder than hell

    So maybe there
    We should have stopped
    Cause I'm left here feeling like a cop
    Because my love is strong
    And my heart is weak
    After all

    To the other side
    of the state's return
    I met a young girl
    Well I couldn't manage her
    Because I think of you
    In every girl i meet
    It's no relief
    That sounds to me just as sweet

    So maybe I'm the fool for feeling used
    By the way we kissed that night i though you knew
    Because my love is strong
    And my heart is weak
    After all

    Just ONE? Sheesh, no way could I pick one.

    I can't even pick one favorite genre... I've got several different playlists just for youtube...

    For cleaning, for dancing, karaoke practice... each has different (and some the same) songs spread across more than 50 years and all genres... turn on puter, youtube, select a playlist, and off you go...

    Hmmm... and considering family site and all... think I'll go with this one...



    Canon D ala electric guitar... love it. No lyrics, just a lovely tune.

    Quote:Got married to that song. But a slower version as I remember. That was cool. The kid can really play.

    For an instrumental on guitar, I like Rodrigo and Gabriella's take on Metallica's ORION

    I run a little insurrection that moves in the direction that beauty is
    beauty in
    spite of
    perfection
    see the crosses at the roadside
    see the thornbush ablaze in bloom
    put your feet in the sand, a lukewarm beer in your hand
    momma, let down your hair
    yes, I´ve chipped a tooth
    no need to call home
    I don´t have to be anywhere

    we can hear the bossa nova
    we can sway the night away
    the steps to the dance are best left up to chance
    better beautiful than perfect, anyway
    and while the moon wanes and waxes
    death and taxes are lurking out there
    Life is grand, Love is real and Beauty is everywhere

    And so the clear blue sky
    no, she never made a sound
    though she was blindfolded, gagged and bound
    now see the poppies pushin´ up through the bones on the ground
    but the body´s never found

    chorus

    can you hear the bossa nova?
    let us sway the night away...


    This song holds a lot of meaning to me, so much so that I have the title in spanish incorporated into a tatoo. The band does 2 shows a year in mexico, first one I went to the singer wore my hat for a couple of songs(something he does for a lot of the fans) and went to toss it back to me, well the guy in front of me jumped up for it and the large camera he had around his shoulder came up and smacked me in the face, breaking both of my front teeth. It would be 4 days later before going back to the states, but it was still an AWESOME trip. I've followed the band for years, they're great.

    Along those same lines Phaethona , here you have the Hothouse Flowers with Be Good.



    Well we went out past the city limits trying to get a better point of view
    You were staring hard at me, I was staring back at you
    And you said I was being secretive, said yes may be you're right
    But if there is logic in any of this madness you'll find it in my eyes

    And be good, be kind, be truthful and feel free
    And keep your wholly loving eyes on me

    I've got a history of questions, the truth I can only feel
    What matters to me the most is what is there and what is real
    We could start by shaking each other and talk about something else
    And I know in the end we can get to the point and we can go and get some rest

    And be good, be kind, be truthful and feel free
    And keep your wholly loving eyes on me

    Is it not written in the music, is it not painted in the skies
    It's time we stopped talking about soft drinks started talking about our lives
    There are answers in the music and there are answers in the words
    And if we stopped talking in circles we might get closer to the earth
    And be good, be kind, be truthful and feel free
    And keep your wholly loving eyes on me

    Great music, even if you don't understand the words...
    And there's some debate over what those lyrics mean.
    I'm to the view that it's referring to us humans blowing ourselves up, but some disagree.

    Some of those lyrics might be considered adult (one particular word really but better safe than sorry) so I'll just let those who wish to snoop snoop, they aren't hard to find.

    Oh, and warning it's pretty heavy so you might want to turn DOWN your speakers until you find your groove.
