Cool song Cody

Having a galaxy to explore often times, these two find a way onto the playlist

Oh, and Gernot? Perhaps time to invest in some headphones!

thanks, friends for all the beautiful music, yeah it's good to share music

"...they can't take away our music, no they can't..."

thanks even for the "mac" geraldine, it will take me sometime to get warm with fleetwood mac without peter green... a prejudice of mine you can say.
but you can help me 😉
with LZ, you never fail, they are "the past masters", blues in it's "prehistoric" (pre to recorded voice) style played in the manner of the 70's. lot of weird psychedelic attitude but in the end, simple blues, simply great, to me. it might not please the ear of trained musicians, but it pleases mine, again and again and again...
can't stop loving rock&roll, it's like a drug and even a burdon (with and without eric 😆 ) it's sometimes NOT FUNNY if you have to dance, you might not like to, but have to, every bone starts to shiver and move, it can be a burdon, really.

i guess some people see me in the train or on the street must think i'm crazy, steady whipping to the music, almost dancing, sometimes really dancing in train stations or wherever i am. but hey, perhaps i'm only listening to "Bill Haley" or "Jelly Roll Morton" which can be surprising to listen to, especially in a tram in zurich (or any city) and suddenly when they play "Mr. Jelly Lord", the tram start's to get very slow just right for the slow sluggish beat of the tune. coincidence right, but what a cool coincidence.

vangelis, yes i left aside to, perhaps even prejudice, i have a problem, the problem is everything that's (was) mainstream repelles me. countless artists i misunderstood their music because of the hype, vangelis is one of them i guess, everybodys back when i was a little younger hailed vangelis, of course i had to say "nah, i don't like it".
besides, this was my teddy times (17) and i was not "allowed" to listen to something else rather the finest and rarest rockabilly and rock&roll (elvis i never liked back then, as comparison. while today i love to copy his moves even to modern music, it works).
remnants from these days are still inside me and a love of mine was "Restless" a british rockabilly trio, like the stray cats, but i said no mainstream please :D, and even yet like the stray cats, different, far cooler, jazzier (if something like that exists), minimal rockabilly one could say.

it seems, after checking a few others, like the album this song is from is the best they ever made, style is perfect imo.

this one goes to "noflag tom" and has of course guided me from on childhood, even when i perhaps wasn't listening or didn't knew the band well, but they was on air everyday, they was present in every jukebox (A1 on the jukebox?, a different member, yes)

more "side-trips",
really i don't believe in magic, but it seems i have a special affinity to machines.
like george in yellow submarine when the tiny tiny motor was shown to him and he said "that's the motor? let me porouse it" he burned his finger and the motor was broken totally 😆
last weekend i was out in a pub, on the way home i had to get me a ticket from the machine, that thing seemed to be broken and plotted randomly destinations on the screen, broke down and showed off the next destination or whatever service this machine offers, e.g. prepaid value cards.
i already heard one in the background "no chance man, it's broken", but i kept on tapping on the touchscreen... and suddenly the proper destination and all settings was entered, randomly you can say (destination, class, date) my words: "oh yeah, give it to me baby!", i only had to hit OK, the screen was still flickering heavy, but it worked, i had a ticket.

geraldine, skodyn, cody, who ever, what have we done wrong?

why we still stuck in this dilemma?

hasn't it been told often enough?

not loud enough?

is there something we can do?

something we forgot?

something we can't see?

"look there are blue meanies arriving in the vacinity of this theatre"

"what can we do?"

"i know something we can do - singing"

"a one, a two, a three..."

well, perhaps we only have to kick on the crickles that old man wears, maybe he starts to walk again then...

it's still good to shock people, here i am, look at me, the living dead (rock&roll), any problems with that? (yes, we have a problem with that, we can't do like you do. not my problem...)

mr. rock&roll loved it to hang out with the punks. ha, they respected and understood me well, some quite bright people i contacted back then.

i guess more intelligent people rather i ever met in switzerland, many spent nights with discussions about "ceasars beard" and drinking vast amounts of (stolen) beer.

"look here he comes, mr. rock&roll", (the long haired version) i had to smile, doing a little dance and everybody was feelin' right.

Well we could all do what a certain 60s band did when the blue meanies turned up to spoil the show

Country Cody? I can do country.......well a little bit anyways

That was different Cody, but good all the same 🙂

Now one from my part of the world, by an artist called Dougie MacLean. You might have listened to this someplace before under the name Promentory, but the original was called The Gael and here it is www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ2MGloZV4U

that's all heavenly woven

hey, country? ok, i forgive you 😉

well, you should hear them commenting my music sometimes (american folk music from way back then), country is a compliment i feel...

mr. bojangles, i heard it first from a rather unknown artist, Rick Abao, two to get precise, the other is... (damned, a strike, charlie something).

edit: i really thought there is not much to find of him, last itme, of course a couple of years ago i didn't found anything except a obituary, he died 2002 unfortunately before i could say; "thanks, you brought light into my life, light into the life of all the children you played for".

perhaps i have to explain that a bit, a (far) relative of me has held a "Folk Club" in Witten germany, as i was i child we visited her once a year.

of course all the folk musicians was hanging 'round her house, it was a folk club, she managed acts in germany for them and was housekeeper of the club (her house).

imagine her as a small but as wide as tall woman with long black hair and a voice that sounds like it's coming out of a crypt, to some she's still well known, i guess.

must have been then when i met him, i can't remember right, i was very young, aged 4 to 6, but my mom (no, that's not my mom, but a patchwork she made) told me.

i guess to us children it was like a big playhouse, with lots of interesting and interested young people, something which is still in the back of my mind is, that we nearly burned the house once because we was playing pirates, a box was our ship, a wardrobe was our island and of course we made a fire...

sometimes i think they would lock us away today, call the police or put us in a madhouse, i know it, i have children it's a shame how we treat them today sometimes.

all this you have to... else you get lost in this world. plus all the shit which is going on with socalled "ADHD", i would have had it if it would have existed then, my stepson nearly was treated because of (we was against it and no one can force here in switzerland parents to do that, thats fine), at least my stepson is less unattentive rather i and made a better graduation rather his friends who was treated. my daughter suffers of it actually, but only when i'm not present, as long as she can have physical contact with me, it's completely gone. i can manage her and her mind, it's easy to me to let her flow and take her back to concentrate on something.

perhaps this is related to why cats fell asleep immediately in my presence...

i visited her last sunday and we was doing the math. lesson together, she's not bad or at least better rather i was and some multiplications she solved faster as i did now. but yes she's very unattentive and have always a new different thing in mind (i guess i know that well). she's 9 now, nah not true 8, she's born in winter just as me.

the equations she had to solve you had to chiffre with a letter code, each staple ended in a word, one word was ...orilla, while the word was written upside down, she asked me what could that be... i said a relative of us, a primate, i haven't spoke to the end, she jumped up went to a chart on the door where the evolution is shown on, "here we are, these are the primates", bravo! wonderful i said, let's get back to work. i mean it needs only a little patience and you can work very well with her (us 😉 ). never tie them down, that hurts and is contraproductive in the end.

hmm, unattentive isn't the right word, very attentive i would say, but hard to handle and not easy to follow their minds.

of course, i know, who better rather me? it's a big handicap in school, a very big handicap if you challange your teacher

---

Family? certainly yes.

i inherited many records of her (the folk club mother), she did the folk selection for SWF3, so a copy of every record of that genre was sent to her.

some are real jewels in my collection and due to the fact that i inherited them lately in a still good condition.

rick made a lot of songs for children and grown up children, many are in german the following is something in between

(i didn't found mr. bojangles, but doesn't matters, perhaps i make a clip myself of that song soon)

well, right

but talent and intelligence make no difference, you know me

it's genetically in our family, yes certainly, but when i think of my grandfather, hmm

high talented, very intelligent, but also indoctrinated by nazi philosophy, even more they made a sort of religion out of it.

so you see, intelligence and talent doesn't help to protect from that.

what you need is a open mind and classless love, only this can help.

to have this you don't have to be intelligent, vice versa i would say, it's a handicap beeing intelligent from this point of view.

blessed are the ones who are simple in mind

I love what my gaming playlists throw at me sometimes. Last night, I was cruising serenely through some backwater system to this. As it ended, a bunch of bandits appeared and all hell broke loose - and the playlist gave me this!

That guy plays like a madman! He may need a Frontier (elite2) Psychiatrist!

You should play this full screen and should probably crank up the sound because it's a little quiet. 😉
