nick cave (and the bad seeds) red albumb with a tree, particularly song number two. I seem to play it by default a lot of the time, start with that one and then depends who is in the house continue with something else.

although this morning i woke up with an overwhelming necessity to hear some pop (unlike me) so i had a bit of stereophonics "i wouldn't believe your...radio2 (i like the start of it) and then against my sound judgement i had a lash to that song of dido that was covered by enimen...can't remember the name, about friends not ringing, drinking too much last night again, being late to work and then you call and it is not so bad, not so bad...i want to thank you...etc..

Daddy yankee gasolina...is that the atrocious pop one with really bad sound and even worse lirics...or is it another, is gotta be another one! the lirics say something like she likes petrol, give her petrol, yes, she likes petrol give her more petrol, she likes petrol...ad nauseum


gosh so bored off them all, i need new music influences.

If you like Nick Cave, then check out Tom Waits. His stuff ranges enough that it is difficult to get bored of him if you dig his kind of thing. I recommend starting early (Closing Time is a great album) and moving chronologically forward (Bone Machine is another great one, but very different).

I like Tom Waits very much. Coincidently, I've been listenting to his music a lot lately; in fact I was just listening to Waltzing Matilda.

He was on the Daily Show recently.

Great tune. I fired up "That Feel". Sings it with Keith Richards (there's a duet of pretty voices...not).


Well there's one thing you can't lose
It's that feel
Your pants, your shirt, your shoes
But not that feel
You can throw it out in the rain
You can whip it like a dog
You can chop it down like an old dead tree
You can always see it
When you're coming into town
Once you hang it on the wall
You can never take it down

But there's one thing you can't lose
And it's that feel
You can pawn your watch and chain
But not that feel
It always comes and finds you
It will always hear yo ucry
I cross my wooden leg
And I swear on my glass eye
It will never leave you high and dry
Never leave you loose
It's harder to get rid of than tattoos

But there's one thing you can't do
Is lose that feel
You can throw it off a bridge
You can lose it in the fire
You can leave it at the altar
But it will make you out a liar
You can fall down in the street
You can leaveit in the lurch
Well you say that it's gospel
But I know that it's only church

And there's one thing you can't lose
And it's that feel

It's that feel

I know. Caught the performance but missed the interview. Ever hear Henry Rollins' Tom Waits story? I figure you would probably dig Henry, am I right?

This is a Leon Russell original, sung this time by Peter Gallagher (yes, he does sing, someone else plays the piano). A very well-known song, combination of rock-blues-country. Hmm, maybe pop-rock --


A Song for You


One of the most beautiful lyrics written, in my opinion.

I'm listening to Damien Rice's new album '9'. Seriously beautiful music. I particularly like 'Rootless Tree' the lyrics of which consist mostly of 'fcuk you, fcuk you ... ' and yet, it still manages to be beautiful nod
