Forever For Her (Is Over for Me)

“I blew it..

And if I knew what to do, then I’d do it
But the point that I have, I’ll get to it

And forever for her is over for me

Forever, just the word that she said that means never
To be with another together
And with the weight of a feather it tore into me

Then I knew it
All the work that it took to get through it
On the wings of a feather that flew it
Fell onto my shoe it cut up into me”

Get Behind Me Satan

Heaven (The Psychedelic Furs song)

In a stroll down memory lane earlier this week, the Editor over at The Sentinel and I watched a 1995 classic that he somehow missed when it was released over a decade ago. Watching ‘Angus‘ all these years later was a ferocious reminder that over a decade has passed since I first related to the good at science, fair at football” leading role of Angus Bethune. Face to face with the significant amount of time that has passed since those early, angst-fueled years of High School, it seems as if that the big 3-O is just around the corner, peaking out at me and counting down.

There’s too much
That I keep to myself
And I turn my back on my faith
It’s like glass
When we break
I wish no one in my place

Love Spit Love was an alternative rock band, founded by singer Richard Fortus following the initial disbanding of the Psychedelic Furs in 1992. Fortus formed Love Spit Love with Richard and Tim Butler.  The band laid low throughout the late 90’s, following a small acoustic tour in ’06, and announcing their undefined hiatus in 2000.

When The Psychedelic Furs reformed in 2000, Fortus joined the group as second guitarist and can be heard on the live album ‘Beautiful Chaos: Greatest Hits Live‘.

Now a member of Guns N’ Roses, Fortus plays both rhythm and lead guitar, replacing Axl Rose‘s childhood friend Paul Tobias.

So, as far as Love Spit Love is concerned… ‘Goodbye, Lay the Blame on Luck.’  I’m really glad we met in ’95.

Some Background Info?

“‘Six Days” is a song by American hip-hop artist DJ Shadow, from his second album, The Private Press. The song was written by Brian Farrell and Dennis Olivieri, and was produced by DJ Shadow. It was released as the third official single from the album in 2002. The main vocals of the song are sampled from the 1971 song “Six Day War” by British band Colonel Bagshot, with some riffs taken from the 1970 song “

” by American singer Dennis Olivieri. Brian Farrell of Colonel Bagshot and Olivieri are both given songwriting credits on the track.”

Ta Da! DJ ShadowSix Days – originally released in 2002, this song and video are both addictively awesome. To think of it, it may also succeed in being just a bit outside the box, in comparison to the chronologically compiled history built thus far in the Gulkin Gazette discography of Little Ditties.

Always a good thing, stepping outside that box long enough to meet such unique musical creations and collaborations as enjoyable as these!

‘Six Days’ by DJ Shadow is the righteous Little Ditty I’d like to present you with today. Another dynamic music discovery, complements of the better half of The Dusk’ Till Dawn Diary Duo.

Little Ditties: ‘Again I Go Unnoticed’

The Gulkin Gazette :  Little Dittes

‘Again I Go Unnoticed’ by Dashboard Confessional 

Chad-Classic-Sneak-Pic

“So quiet
another wasted night,
the television steals the conversation
Exhale,
another wasted breath,
again it goes unnoticed.

Please tell me you’re just feeling tired
cause if it’s more than that I feel that I might break
out of touch, out of time.

Please send me anything but signals that are mixed
cause I can’t read your rolling eyes
out of touch, are we out of time?

Close lipped
another goodnight kiss
is robbed of all it’s passion,

Your grip
another time, is slack
it leaves me feeling empty.

I’ll wait until tomorrow
maybe you’ll feel better then
maybe we’ll be better then
so what’s another day
when I can’t bear these nights of thoughts
of going on without you

This mood of yours is temporary
it seems worth the wait
to see your smile again
out of the corner of my eye
won’t be the only way . . . you’re looking at me then.”

The Longest Time

A Little Ditty Circa 1984

To be forever chronicled in The Dusk ‘Till Dawn Diary Division

“If you said goodbye to me tonight
There would still be music left to write
What else could I do
I’m so inspired by you
That hasn’t happened for the longest time

Once I thought my innocence was gone
Now I know that happiness goes on
That’s where you found me
When you put your arms around me
I haven’t been there for the longest time”

Hold the Line

     This classic little ditty is one of the cherished American pop rock productions of American Band, Toto.‘Hold the Line’ was a single off of their self-titled debut album released in 1978, and remains one of the band’s top three hits.

     These soft rock Hall of Famers are widely recognized by two of their other hit songs I know you remember include ‘Rosanna’ and ‘Africa’ 

“I flipped the first time I heard myself on the radio. My mom called me up and said, “Turn on KLOS.” It was the song “Hold the Line,” and I started running around the house in my underwear, screaming, “I’m on the radio!” My wife was cracking up. It was just a thrill.”

(Steve Lukather, Guitar Player magazine, April 1984)

‘Hold the Line’ was #5 on The Billboard Music Charts in the Winter of 78’-79’

Enjoy!

She’s a Happy Lassie…

For You, Our Silver Stallion

Oh, you got to love her (love her)
And tease her (tease her)
But most of all you got to please her (please her)
You got to hold her (hold her)
And want her (want her)
And make her feel you’ll always need her (need her)

You know a woman (woman)
Is sentimental (woman)
And so easy (woman) to upset (woman)
So make her feel (feel)
That she’s for real, yeah (real)
And she’ll give you happiness
Whoa-oh strange as it seems
(treat her like) (you got to treat her like)
You know you can’t treat a woman mean
(treat her like) (you got to treat her like)

So my friend, there you have it
I said it’s the easy, simple way
If you fail to do this
Don’t blame her if she looks my way

Cause I’m gonna
Treat her like a lady
So affectionately
I’m gonna treat her like a lady

…and We Sure Did!

‘Little Boxes’ written and performed by Malvina Reynolds ’62

Little Boxes on the hillside’…

“Little Boxes” is a song written by Malvina Reynolds in 1962, which became a hit for her friend Pete Seeger in 1963.

The song is a political satire about the development of suburbia and associated conformistmiddle-class attitudes. It refers to suburban tract housing as “little boxes” of different colors “all made out of ticky-tacky“, and which “all look just the same.” “Ticky-tacky” is a reference to the shoddy material used in the construction of housing of that time.[1]

“Little Boxes’ by ‘Malvina Reynolds’

‘Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky tacky
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes all the same.
There’s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.

And the people in the houses
All went to the university,
Where they were put in boxes
And they came out all the same,
And there’s doctors and lawyers,
And business executives,
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.

And they all play on the golf course
And drink their martinis dry,
And they all have pretty children
And the children go to school,
And the children go to summer camp
And then to the university,
Where they are put in boxes
And they come out all the same.

And the boys go into business
And marry and raise a family
In boxes made of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.
There’s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.’

Words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1962 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1990.

Malvina and her husband were on their way from where they lived in Berkeley, through San Francisco and down the peninsula to La Honda where she was to sing at a meeting of the Friends’ Committee on Legislation (not the PTA, as Pete Seeger says in the documentary about Malvina, “Love It Like a Fool”). As she drove through Daly City, she said “Bud, take the wheel. I feel a song coming on.”
