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
Forever for Her (Is Over for Me)

I Can Tell That We Are Gonna Be Friends

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.

‘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”

‘What else could I do, I’m so inspired by you’

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.

“Out of the darkness,

I came the farthest

Among the hardest survival

Learn from these streets,

it can be bleak

Accept no defeat,

surrender, retreat”

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)

The Lovin’ Spoonful’s Summer in the City 1966

“Gettin’ Dirt and Gritty’

Summer in the City

The Lovin’ Spoonful

1966

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirt and gritty
Been down, isn’t it a pity
Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city

All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

But at night it’s a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it’ll be alright

And babe, don’t you know it’s a pity
That the days can’t be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

Cool town, evening in the city
Dressing so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I’m wheezing like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop

Please do enjoy this 1966 little ditty by The Lovin’ Spoonful, written by Mark Sebastian (brother of John Sebastian) and Steve Boone. Hit single of the ‘66 release of album, Hums of the Lovin’ Spoonful. The song reached the number one spot of the Billboard Hot 100 on August 13, 1966.

Interestingly and awesome enough, probably one of the reasons I used to love this song when my Dad would play it while we cleaned the car…

This song was intentionally recorded with a background series of car horns,during the instrumental bridge, starting with a Volkswagen Beetle horn, and ending up with a jackhammer sound, in order to give the impressions of the sounds of ‘the summer in the city.’

This little ditty ranks at a proud number 393 on Rolling Stones list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time!

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!

You and Me Song

————————————————————————–

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..
