‘My Eyes Adored You’..

Frankie Valley and The Four Seasons

“My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you,
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see
How I adored you:
So close, so close and yet so far”

Fun. ‘We Are Young’

Gulkin Gazette Division ‘Little Ditties’:

Acoustic Treat of Melodic and Vocal Harmony

——————————————————–

 performed by Fun. and Janelle Monáe

Give me a second I
I need to get my story straight
My friends are in the bathroom
getting higher than the empire state
my lover she’s waiting for me
just across the bar
My seats been taken by some sunglasses
asking ’bout a scar

and I know I gave it to you months ago
I know you’re trying to forget
but between the drinks and subtle things
the holes in my apologies

you know I’m trying hard to take it back
so if by the time the bar closes
and you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter
than the sun

Tonight
we are young
so let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

And I know that I’m not
all that you got
I guess that I
I just thought maybe we could find a ways to fall apart
But our friends in back
So let’s raise a toast
Cause I found someone to carry me home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s the set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

Tonight
We are young
so let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight
Carry me home tonight
Just carry me home tonight

The moon is on my side
I have no reason to run
So will someone come and carry me home tonight
The angels never arrived
but I can hear the choir
so will someone come and carry me home

Tonight
We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

Tonight
We are young
so let’s set the world on fire
we can burn brighter
than the sun

So if by the time the bar closes
and you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home tonight

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”

Fueled by talented musicians, innovative artists and incredible writers, the tumultuous tides of the 60s in America challenged young souls to face the harsh reality of war, civil rights and extreme political change.

This extraordinary challenge inspired what could arguably be considered the most culturally significant and creatively unprecedented eras in history. Famous photographer Robert Altman was at the center of it all, determined to chronicle the life and times the Sixties inspired.

Robert Altman’s Rock, Roll & Remember Exhibition successfully captures the simultaneous cultural, social and sexual revolutions that embodied the Sixties in America. A generation built on the spirited, soulful sound of ’60s rock music, politically driven passions, the birth of active feminism and Abbie Hoffman‘s ‘yippies’.

Including iconic 1960s figures such as: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Tina Turner, Jerry Garcia, George Harrison, Timothy Leary, Allen Ginsberg, Jim Morrison, Pete Townsend and Dennis Hopper, these rare, large format photographs, some measuring 8 feet high by 8 feet wide, were previously on view in Manhattan filling all 39 windows at Macy’s in Herald Square and on the grounds of the 1969 Woodstock Festival at The Museum at Bethel Woods.
