Elliott Smith - Needle in the Hay

Hey Vivi never heard of this guy before (I really liked this track) so I  have just spent that past 1/2hour web trawling   
That is one grim journey that bloke did, and a strange and unresolved ending.

I'll keep an ear out for other stuff of his, but it may be a little too bleak for me. Still always great to hear something completely new, thanks.

you're welcome!

yeah it tends to be a little on the bleak side, but not all his songs are quite as wrist-slittingly depressing. Smith is almost like a  prototype of the really messed up musician.

I am currently hooked on this Fergie / Slash vid, 'Beautiful Dangerous'

I really think Fergie missed her calling with that pop stuff.  She needs to do more of this!

HOT!!!

Atheists are spectators in a grand battle of stupid ideas.  Sadly, these ideas get people killed in the name of a loving god on both sides of the delusion.

nom de plume:

?.....eat the feather? sounds like time for a nom nom song.




and completely apropos of nothing
....I'd forgotten what an incredibly pretentious bunch of wankers these guys could be, then I stumbled over this historical hysterical track.



The messengers with sharpened heels
Flew backwards into whose galloping arms
And the impassioned Phoenix
Drawls a sad goodnight to fiction's tomb

Then come to me secretly
And with your silken feather
And with your silken feather
Open your rooms

Never, in fact, as he gazed amazed
At two lost eyebrows lisping into the unexpected
And the archetypal postman delivering your seed letters
Whose eyes are black eggs really
Upon a long shore, upon a long shore
Open your door, open your door

'Ask anyone,' he muttered, as he spat a small,
Brilliant blue insect whirring into the gauze.
'I would advise stilts for the quagmires,
And camels for the snowy hills
And any survivors
Their debts I will certainly pay.
There's always a way, there's always a way.

I smiled with that gallantly concealed forceful nervousness
That has proved that oysters cry
And that I have come to know and accept as myself.
And plucking a barbed feather from the morose universe
I called him deathless

And he left before he could reply
Open your eyes, open your eyes

Our first father, Abraham, whose bosom
Was the unique soul of the humans
Was certainly as bewildered as we are
If not infinitely more so
And with an ancient ceremonial gesture of dismissal
He pointed forward.

Verily, verily
Verily, verily

The first day was golden
And she coloured the sun
And she named it Hyperion
And she made it a day of light and healing

The second was silver
And she coloured the moon
And she named it Phoebe
And she made a day of enchantment and the living waters

And the third was many-coloured
And she coloured the earth
And she made a day of joy
With the scarlet strength of seed

In the fourth black and white were mingled into quicksilver
And she coloured Mercury
And she made a day of wisdom
And the signs that are placed in the firmament

The fifth was bright blue
And she envisaged Jupiter
And she made a day of awe and circles, circles
And she sent it to guide the blood of the universe

The sixth was burning with icy, green flames that glowed white
And of her beauty she made Venus
And she made a day of love
Whereby all beings are united

The seventh was rich purple of the mollusks
And she coloured Chronos
And she made a day of idleness and repose
Whereon all beings cease from struggle.

Verily, verily
Verily, verily

I am the pebble in your very own eye
I am the sword and your enemy dies.
I am the storm and the hurricane wind
I am the thorn of an unkind friend
I am desire what colour my eyes?
I am Loki wizard of lies
Catch me, find me, see me if you can
I am the guilt of an honest man

Then seven times we raised our arms and with cat-stretch
Sent our footspells yawning into the multitudes

In need we called upon the mother of all living
Three times for succor
But with ambitious spears they made us change
They crouched behind their mirrors and fought on.

I will not allow them praise
That broke the harmonious globe in splintered fragments
And yet they moved perforce with a perfect pattern
And complemented harmony with dischord
And light with darkness

It was then that we stepped out of our world machine
Between the palm and the fingers
Peeling like gloves

And for each eye that shed one tear,
We made of that tear an ocean
And in the five directions
We loosed our several craft.

Wild sea, I say today,
Please be a sweet cow for me
Amethyst galleon, out on the rolling sea
Gentle as lightning, easily
Take me to the root of the world tree
Amethyst galleon, out on the rolling sea

Your face is consumed in a bruised sky's glance
By the brazen wall with your sword and lance
Where
Where dappled maidens, endless danced
Round the root of the world tree.

Wild sea, I say today
Please be a sweet cow for me
Amethyst galleon, out on the rolling sea

Wild sea, my love is salty for me
Every ripple in her body is a wave in me
Amethyst galleon, out on the rolling sea.

In my humble opinion, music is more about stimulating the brain to produce certain sensations through auditory patterns rather than making you feel a certain emotion.

This to me is music.

So what "certain sensations" does listening to that cause you to experience kindred?
I have always wondered about others interaction with their choice of music.

I don't think music is specifically about making you feel a certain emotion, but a side effect of listening to music can have exactly that effect.

@kin hell

All my senses sharpen. For a few moments, my senses  and my thought processes suddenly become focused. My heart beats faster and than it sort of goes back and forth from calm to high arousal state and ends with a numbing sensation.

I reckon it feels just about the same as the time I repeatedly pushed the face ,of a guy who was bullying me, into a blackboard untill he was spitting blood and wimpering(cruel, but it stopped the bullying). Anger, hatred, fury, guilt and regret spring to my mind when I experience the sensations.

Anger, hatred, fury, guilt and regret

I suspect that one very significant reason music is such a successful virus is specifically because it does trigger emotional response.

Though I must acknowledge that much of the  music that I really enjoy isn't necessarily triggering specific emotion, it is an overall immersion stroking.
I think the brain/gland pattern recognition subprogram enjoys doing its task.

Having said that, while recognising that I do love complex rhythm and synchopation, why then does my pattern recognition still love the other non-testing really very simple and basic stuff.

Buddy Holly doing Peggy Sue (although it sounds risque), is a gimme for structure and timing, but will have me singing along every time.

But I'll agree kindred in so far as even if a picture paints a thousand words, and the most sublime sunset is sublime, the data input =>stimuli ratio is nothing to compare to the outright kick in the head some music can deliver.

like this. 
Now back in the day, I didn't even like ELP that much, a few good tracks off a few albums, yet a year ago, I stumbled across this vid below. 
And I was absolutely fishsmacked.
Floored by an extreme rush of nostalgia, almost to the point of grief and tears for lost and never to be reclaimed glory days.
And they were absolutely that   ....wild sunlit days of strong and free young lords chasing waves during the days and spending the nights in the company of lovely lovely companions with not the slightest comprehension of future loss.

OK that's all very well, but why out of all the music that my broad appreciation holds and plays, why has this one vid with Greg Lake (mid ELP concert on acoustic and solo singing a song I do remember but was never an absolute fave), why has this track wiped me out with waves of nostalgia as if it is hardwired directly into that part of my brain?
