    The Avett Brothers - Ten Thousand Words


    "Ten Thousand Words"

    Ten thousand words swarm around my head
    Ten million more in books written beneath my bed
    I wrote or read them all when searchin’ in the swarms
    Still can’t find out how to hold my hands

    And I know you need me in the next room over
    But I am stuck in here all paralyzed
    For months I got myself in ruts
    Too much time spent in mirrors framed in yellow walls

    Ain’t it like most people? I’m no different
    We love to talk on things we don’t know about
    Ain’t it like most people? I’m no different
    We love to talk on things we don’t know about

    And everyone around me shakes their head in disbelief
    And says I’m too caught up
    They say young is good and old is fine
    And truth is cool but all that matters
    Is that you have your good times
    But their good times come with prices
    And I can’t believe it when I hear the jokes they make
    At anyone’s expense except their own
    Would they laugh if they knew who paid?

    Ain’t it like most people? I’m no different
    We love to talk on things we don’t know about
    Ain’t it like most people? I’m no different
    We love to talk on things we don’t know about

    And after we are through ten years
    of making it to be the most of glorious debuts
    I’ll come back home without my things
    ‘Cause the clothes I wore out there I will not wear ’round you
    And they’ll be quick to point out our shortcomings
    And how the experts all have had their doubts

    Ain’t it like most people? I’m no different
    We love to talk on things we don’t know about

    Hello Tsaphah
    I wonder where you go to find your videos, almost half of them report: This video is not available. It is only with the videos you post.

    Hi Baruq,
    I understand that you reside in England, or the UK. I get all videos from Youtube. Unfortunately some of them are not available outside the USA. It's most likely due to copyright laws. Some music companies block them because the countries don't abide to the copyrights. Also, there are those who take advantage and don't pay for the rights and continue to post entire albums which deprive the artists and the music companies their due reward for their work. Also, the record companies want to make millions of dollars from the artists. That's usually the main reason for blocking them.

    Some individuals think it's OK to leave a comment like;"I don't own any of the music and don't claim any rights." They think this allows them the right to post the music. It does not! They are in violation of the copyright laws and can be legally sued for thousands of dollars/pounds/euros. They are considered to be thiefs. Usually, Youtube has agreements with the holders of the copyright to reimburse them for certain amounts based on the number of plays. It will also apply to other countries to recognize the copyright laws. Some don't and that is why the songs are blocked. There are three types of copyright laws concerning music: recorded, performance, and publishing. Each one has specific language to cover what is in violation of the law. It's a long ongoing story and battle.

    Some of the videos I choose are without commercials attached to them. Those are likely some that are not available outside the USA, due to agreements between Youtube and the companies.

    Hey Londoner,

    WOW! I’m surprised that you haven’t heard of Journey. They are a huge rock band from throughout the 70’s up to today. They have had several personnel changes but seem to keep the fans happy. The song I posted was written and sang by Steve Perry. That song and several others were written to his wife who didn’t travel with the band. They were playing all over the world, year after year. Here’s one of their biggest hits.

    Journey - Don't Stop Believing

    Here is another song for Londoner and his wife.
    Here's a bit about the message behind the song. Steve Perry wrote this for his wife.
    She wasn't able to travel with the band on their tours. Anyone who has been around a touring band knows the temptations put upon the artists by some beautiful "Fans". Many an artist has fallen because of this. I've seen it happen too many times. There's more to the story but, I don't have the time to tell it.

    Journey - Faithfully with lyrics

    Hi Baruq,
    As an added note to the issue of copyright, and blocking or removing video/songs online, the industry is moving in a new direction. The CD/DVD, and Youtube posting of music is being changed to “streaming” programs. There is Itunes, Spotify, and Amazon, three big suppliers, which are pushing music companies to issue copyright to them. They in turn will require the listener to pay a monthly fee to be able to listen to different genres, similar to the old radio days. I haven’t listened to radio since 1993. It’s old hat; as we say. CD’s and DVD’s will become extinct as a form of selling music, film, and other forms of information. If you haven’t noticed, you will not find the vast shelf space for blank CD's and DVD's in stores as they used to have. It’s all about control of product and the money.

    Local boy, does good!

    Jackie Greene - Travelin’ Song


    Well I woke up wednesday morning with bad weather in my brain,
    I lay awake awhile ignoring all the rain
    Now everybody’s talkin’ about who they plan to be,
    Everybody’s talkin’, everybody except me.

    And no one cares about your heartache or which lonely town you’re from;
    You got to take your salvation boy, however it may come
    And I can’t help but think about what I done wrong
    To deserve this roamin’ this travelin’ song

    Now I got a little money and I got a little time,
    I got myself a pickup truck that I can call mine
    I got myself a guitar and I got myself some friends
    Some folks say I’m lucky, but I think it all depends.

    On the lens that you are looking through and the music that you hear;
    Cause sometimes you don’t recognize your own face in the mirror
    And I can’t help but think about what I done wrong
    To deserve this roamin’ this travelin’ song

    Out here on the highway, everything’s so slow,
    I thought I knew my way home, but now I just don’t know
    I’m going down the road with all them easter winds a blowin’
    I’m going down the road and I don’t care where it’s going.

    So one more cup of coffee and the radio is on;
    And I’ll slip out your door to the breaking of dawn
    And I can’t help but think about what I done wrong
    To deserve this roamin’ this travelin’ song

    Hi Tsaphah :)

    I definitely know this song very well. I remember when it was new, but not the band name. Thanks for the memory jogger!

    The Alan Parsons Project - Breakdown


    "Breakdown"

    I breakdown in the middle and lose my head.
    No one can understand a word that I say.
    When I breakdown just a little and lose my head,
    Nothing I try to do can work the same way.

    Any time it happened, I’d get over it
    With a little help from all my friends.
    Anybody else could see what’s wrong with me,
    But they walk away and just pretend...

    When I breakdown.

    I breakdown in the middle and lose my head.
    No one can understand a word that I say.
    When I breakdown just a little and lose my head,
    Nothing I try to do can work the same way.

    Where are all the friends who used to talk to me?
    All they ever told me was good news...
    People that I’ve never seen are kind to me,
    Is it any wonder I’m confused?

    When I breakdown...When I breakdown...

    Freedom, freedom, we will not obey.
    Freedom, freedom, take the wall away.
    Take the wall away.
    Freedom, freedom, we will not obey.
    Freedom, freedom, take the wall away.
    Where are all my friends?
    I’m so confused..

    He passed away last night.... They're going to talk about it for a whole month here... ad nauseam !



    Quelque chose de Tennessee - Johnny Hallyday

    A vous autres, hommes faibles et merveilleux
    Qui mettez tant de grâce a vous retirer du jeu
    Il faut qu'une main posée sur votre épaule
    Vous pousse vers la vie, cette main tendre et légère

    On a tous quelque chose en nous de Tennessee
    Cette volonté de prolonger la nuit
    Ce désir fou de vivre une autre vie
    Ce rêve en nous avec ses mots à lui

    Quelque chose de Tennessee

    Cette force qui nous pousse vers l'infini
    Y a peu d'amour avec tell'ment d'envie
    Si peu d'amour avec tell'ment de bruit
    Quelque chose en nous de Tennessee

    Ainsi vivait Tennessee
    Le cœur en fièvre et le corps démoli
    Avec cette formidable envie de vie
    Ce rêve en nous c'était son cri à lui

    Quelque chose de Tennessee

    Comme une étoile qui s'éteint dans la nuit
    A l'heure où d'autres s'aiment à la folie
    Sans un éclat de voix et sans un bruit
    Sans un seul amour, sans un seul ami

    Ainsi disparut Tennessee

    A certaines heures de la nuit
    Quand le cœur de la ville s'est endormi
    Il flotte un sentiment comme une envie
    Ce rêve en nous, avec ses mots à lui

    Quelque chose de Tennessee

    Oh oui Tennessee

    Y a quelque chose en nous de Tennessee

    Diego, libre dans sa tête - Johnny Hallyday

    Derrière des barreaux
    Pour quelques mots
    Qu'il pensait si fort

    Dehors il fait chaud
    Des milliers d'oiseaux
    S'envolent sans effort

    Quel est ce pays
    Où frappe la nuit
    La loi du plus fort?

    Diego, libre dans sa tête
    Derrière sa fenêtre
    S'endort peut-être

    Et moi qui danse ma vie
    Qui chante et qui rit
    Je pense à lui

    Diego, libre dans sa tête
    Derrière sa fenêtre
    Déjà mort peut-être

    I had never heard about this one. Thanks for sharing !

    Je ne la connaissais pas celle-là. Merci de me/nous la faire connaître ! Bon, le père Johnny, je l'aimais bien. J'ai grandi un peu/beaucoup avec lui, en quelque sorte... Ca m'attriste quand même un peu tout ça mais depuis ce matin, ils n'ont parlé que de ça à la télé et on va encore en bouffer pour un bon bout de temps... Il y a l'autre attardé mental qui a décidé de transférer l'ambassade US à Jérusalem et je n'en ai quasiment pas entendu parler de toute la journée malgré le fait que n'ayant pas travaillé de la journée, j'ai écouté les infos plus que d'ordinaire... C'est pour dire !

    J'espère que tu vas bien ! :)
