Fallen for You

 

A Little Ditty

From our Memoirs of Movies that Shape the Soul

Sheila Nicholls ‘Fallen for You’

“Fallen for you
Did you ever see me,
Watching from periphery?
I was playing another game
I hoped you catch on all the same.

Fallen from view
Did you ever touch me,
Floating through your potpourri?
I thought I felt your fingers once
After waiting all these months

But I was wrong, so wrong
That was just another song you wrote, for another girl
And I hoped a day could be
When you’d write a song for me

But it never came,
I thank you all the same,
But I’ll go now, so you won’t know how much I’ve

Fallen for you,
Boy who’s trying to be a man
Boy, you don’t know if he can
I thought I knew you well enough
But your walls are still too tough

But I was wrong, so wrong
That was just another song you wrote, for another girl
And I hoped the day could be
When you’d write a song for me

But it never came,
I thank you all the same,
But I’ll go now, so you won’t know how much I

Thought about you all the time,
Walking round, the Guggenheim.
Like a rhyme, in my mind,
There you are, in my car,
But we don’t drive very far.
To the beach, out of reach
Next to me… my fantasy

Falling for you
Did you ever see me,
Watching from periphery?
I was playing another game
I hoped you catch on all the same.”

I Was Scared

A Stereogum Little Ditty with Rivers Cuomo

‘I Was Scared’

I was scared,

I was terrified

I was lost

And so I shied away 

I promise

That ill never ever do

That thing i did that day when acted like a fool

I might get my ass beat

My throat slit and my fingers hacked

But ill never miss another chance to watch my brothers back

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”

Am I Wrong

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.

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”

(C) 1984 SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT

It’s never been easy for me… To find words to go along with a melody… But this time there’s actually something on my mind… So please forgive these few brief, awkward lines…
Music and Lyrics I cried my eyes out for a solid hour earlier today.  One of those great crying sessions where you just feel moved by something entirely unrelated to your life, that somehow ignites an attachment to every emotion you’ve ever had… Wait, am I the only one who does that?

Fiona Apple, Elvis Costello – “I Want You”

One of the most talented and emotionally driven female recording artists and exception lyricist, Fiona Apple. In this clip, the natural talent in melancholy melodies with strong interludes of almost angered expression, are recognizable even in her very first composition. A gift that was seemingly existing in the artist even before her fingers met their first instrument.

“I Want You” (Originally by/Featuring: Elvis Costello)

Live Version from VH1‘s Live for Decades Rock Live!, released as an iTunes single (2006)

Against All Odds

Oh, Phil Collins…

Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)

PHIL COLLINS

“This is called… ‘Against All Odds’…

I was previously frustrated beyond rational belief in regards to the publishing of one of my personal all time top-five favorite songs. This was due to being denied embedding rights to the video footage of Phil Collins during Live Aid, Wembley Stadium, London, England, July 13, 1985 singing ‘Against All Odds (take a look at me now)’.

In this epic performance, a younger Collins makes a humbled entrance and reveals a blushing expression after a slight piano fumble, while entering the second verse. 

This capture, circa 2008 suits the strength of this particular little ditty impressively. With a softer tone, and evolved delivery, Phil Collins still skeleton key’s his way into the control center of my heart strings with ‘Against All Odds (take a look at me now)’.

How can you just walk away from me
When all I can do is watch you leave
Cos we’ve shared the laughter and the pain
And even shared the tears
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now
‘Cause there’s just an empty space
And there’s nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face
Take a look at me now
‘Cause there’s just an empty space
And you coming back to me
Is against all odds and that’s what I’ve got to face

A Gulkin-Boone Mustang Overhaul

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!
