No music.  News and talk radio.
A good monarch is a treasure. A good politician is an oxymoron.

My brain is both uninhibited and uninhabited.

This is my son's choice. We had a happy moment, amonst all the sad discussions  this week, when a line from this  particulr Dylan  song was mentioned and we both agreed, enthusiastically, that Fairport did the best ever cover of it. He then insisted on playing it, at as near to volume as my crappy speakers can reasonably accomodate, and we sang along together, then hugged :)

(one of us can sing, one can't . but ooooh, we both know all the words)

Playing it again, right now :)

  I first heard this in a doctor's waiting room, and I memorized a line from it so I could
   type the words in for a Google search.  R.I.P., Sandy Denny.  Beautiful voice, gone too soon. :heart:

Hmm intersting question. Didn't Steeleye Span pretty much exclusively "cover" traditional folk ? I think Fairport also did some of the songs, but ya couldn't really accuse them of ripping off Steeleye. A lot of folk bands did their own versions.

More interesting to me, is the revelation that Lestat knows a thing or two about Folk! Who'd have thunk it?

And, given that Steeleye had a mention,. and given that Christmas is on the horizion, here's one my favourite Steeleye songs ...and one of the very few Xmas songs I can stand:

.


Comment on your offerering, Lestat : it kinda reminds of NIN's "Hurt" (subject rather than style) . Pity about that really, because just about everything suffers by comparison, and it is pretty  good.

Oldie but a goodie. Great set of lungs on her
I don't want to hear it. Save your complaints to Odeon. Yes, we had decided to drop hostilities. No, I didnt expect that Odeon would do other than start shit again like he always does
You're not going to stick to "a handful people", are you? That would be stupid.
Damned if I won't respond.
So it's on again & you can lay the blame squarely at his feet. Little passive-aggressive bitch

 :indeed:  And here's her very best  recording  IMO. Her rendition of this song (along with Fairport's  haunting backing ) has pretty much ruined every other recording of "she moves through the Fair" for me.

  Listening to this over and over, getting teary-eyed.  :'( 
  I will always love Anna for this one song, even if she never writes another like it.

Gaudete is one of my favourites by them. I say 'by them', steeleye that is, its their rendition of it, its a traditional folk song which dates back to at least as early as the 15th century, probably at least mid to late 14th century.

Its old enough that no band doing that number would be ripping it off. Its fair game for anybody.

And lol whaddya mean Walkie m'dear? Who'da thunk whatwhynow? I have a fairly...eclectic mixture of tastes. Although for the most part metal of various kinds, and industrial are my things. There are other things I like.

OOh. Mentioned Papa Legba on another thread and suddenly thought of this. An awesome perforfnnce from one of my favorite films. I remember I tried  and tried to get a copy of the soundtrack, and a copy of the video, but no dice. But that was before m,ultimedia internet. I'll bet I could download the lot now, no sweat.  All I could get was the Talking Heads album where they performed every song from the film  themnselves. Wonderful (and I did want that too)  but they just couldn't compete with this:

My last post suddenly reminded me of this, so  I brought it up on You Tube and listened , and hey! the whole  song   reminds me of I^2 (like as if I need reminding  :LOL: )
