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.

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.

Oh, 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

The Killers: An Update…. Information Source: socialbutterflies.wordpress.com <Thank You!>
In a recent interview with the Australian Associated Press, The Killers guitarist Dave Keuning said that the Vegas glam-rockers’ Feb. 21 show in Melbourne will be their last—for a while, at least.
The news doesn’t come as such a surprise, as the Killers have been touring and recording virtually non-stop since they first started catching ears with “Somebody Told Me” in 2004. But, in the context of rumors that singer Brandon Flowers wants to go solo, it looks increasingly likely that “break” in this case might actually be short for “break-up.”

Don’t go getting all upset on me now, though, about a rumored possibility of a permanent dismembering of this fantastic band, as it seems they have confirmed a performance for November 12-13, 2011, and are still mapping out performances together.
We may see some solo work of Keuning released, however, and of this, I’m stoked!
The November gig where The Killers will be co-headlining is the Citrus Bowl Inaugural Orlando Calling Festive Celebration.as part of an impressive collection of performers (including the Raconteurs, Pete Yorn, Bob Segar and the Silver Bullet Band and the Pixies) at the Citrus Bowl Inaugural Orlando Calling Festive Celebration.

Be A Girl (1994)
Always when we fight
I kiss you once or twice
And everything’s forgotten
I know you hate that
I love you Sunday song
The week’s not yet begun
And everything is quiet
And it’s always…
You and me always, and forever
You and me always, and forever
ba ba ba ba da ba, it was always
You and me always..

“Don’t confront me with my failures…I had not forgotten them.”
Composed at the age of 16, Jackson Browne performs an acoustic version of the sweet sorrow of song,”These Days.”
It serves as a sentimental little ditty considered to be a “classic of morose introspection.”
Eli: I’m not in love with you any more.
Margot: I didn’t know you ever were.
Eli: Let’s not make this any more difficult than it already is.
Eli: OK, what?
Margot: OK, I’m not in love with you either.
Eli: Yes, I know, you’re in love with Richie. Which is sick and gross.
Here’s an intriguingly soft cover of “These Days” by artist Niko. Wes Anderson soundtracks always have the perfect tune to represent bizarre and intricate complexity of human emotion. For the backdrop while Margot shows up late to pick up Rickie, nailed it with this tune.

Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan – ‘I Still Miss Someone’
The Dylan/Cash Sessions 1969
A rare recording collaboration of music legends Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan.
This song is a timeless piece in the extraordinary puzzle of iconic musical prelude…
The Time: 1969
The Place: Nashville, TN
The Legends: Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash
The (once lost) Dylan/Cash Sessions at CBS Studios is a series of early recordings over the course of three separate days during the year of 1969. The studios where the recordings took place were most likely to have been the Ryman Auditorium and BS Studios in Nashville, TN.
The collection of these recordings is considered to be one of the most desirable bootlegs in American music history, and in an effort to pay a bit of homage to musical inspirations, here is a timeless little ditty duet to enjoy.
