Phil Manzanera (Feat. Sonia Bernardo)- "No Church In The Wild"

                                                     

Human beings' in a mob

What's a mob to a king?

What's a king to a god?

What's a god to a non-believer

Who don't believe in anything?

Will he make it out alive?

Alright alright

No church in the wild

(JZ)

Tears on the mausoleum floor

Blood stains the coliseum doors

Lies on the lips of a priest

Thanksgiving disguised as a feast

Rolling in the Rolls Royce Corniche

Only the doctors got this

I'm hiding from police

Cocaine seats

All white like I got the whole thing bleached

Drug dealer chic

I'm wondering if a thug's prayers reach

Is Pious pious cause God loves pious?

Socrates asked whose bias do yall seek

All for Plato, screech

I'm out here balling, I know yall hear my sneaks

Jesus was a carpenter, Yeezy laid beats

Hova flowed the Holy Ghost

Get the hell up out your seats

Preach
(Frank Ocean)

Human beings' in a mob

What's a mob to a king?

What's a king to a god?

What's a god to a non-believer

Who don't believe in anything?

Will he make it out alive?

Alright alright

No church in the wild
(The-Dream)

I live by you, desire

I stand by you, walk through the fire

Your love, is my scripture

Let me in, through your encryption
(KW)

Coke on her black skin make a stripe like a zebra

I call that jungle fever

You will not control the three-some

Just roll the weed up until I get me some

We formed a new religion

No sins as long as there's permission

And deception is the only felony

So never f**k nobody without telling me
Sunglasses and Advil

Last night was mad real

Some come in at 5 A.M

I wonder if they got cabs still

Thinking about the girl in all leopard

Who was rubbing the wood like Kiki Shepherd

Two tattoos one read No Apologies, the other said Love Is Cursed By Monogamy

It's somethin' that the pastor don't preach

It's somethin' that a teacher can't teach

When we die the money we can't keep, but we probably spend it all cuz the pain ain't cheap ...Preach
(Frank Ocean)

Human beings' in a mob

What's a mob to a king?

What's a king to a god?

What's a god to a non-believer

Who don't believe in anything?

Will he make it out alive?

Alright alright

No church in the wild (x4)

Echo and the Bunnymen - Lips Like Sugar

                                           

She floats like a swan
Grace on the water
Lips like sugar
Lips like sugar

Just when you think you've caught her
She glides across the water
She calls for you tonight
To share this moonlight

You'll flow down her river
She'll ask and you'll give her
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses

She knows what she knows
know what she's thinking
Sugar kisses
Sugar kisses

Just when you think she's yours
She's flown to other shores
To laugh at how you break
And melt into this lake

You'll flow down her river
But you'll never give her
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses

She'll be my mirror
Reflect what I am
A loser and a winner
The King of Siam
And my Siamese twin
Alone on the river
Mirror kisses
Mirror kisses

Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses
Lips like sugar
Sugar kisses






Cracker - Low

Siouxsie & the Banshees - "Kiss Them for Me" + " Dear Prudence" [480p)

                                                     
It glittered and it gleamed
For the arriving beauty queen
A ring and a car
Now you're the prettiest by far
No party she'd not attend
No invitation she wouldn't send
Transfixed by the inner sound
Of your promise to be found, oh
Nothing or no-one will ever
Make me let you down
Kiss them for me, I may be delayed
Kiss them for me, if I am delayed
It's Divoon, oh it's Serene
In the fountains pink champagne
Someone carving their devotion
In the heart shaped pool of fame, oh
Nothing or no-one will ever
Make me let you down
Kiss them for me, I may be delayed
Kiss them for me, I may find myself delayed
On the road to New Orleans
A spray of stars hit the screen
As the 10th impact shimmered
The forbidden candles beamed
Kiss them for me, I may be delayed
Kiss them for me, I may find myself delayed
Kiss them for me, kiss them for me
Kiss them for me, I may find myself delayed
Kiss them for me
Kiss them for me


Romeo Void - Never Say Never

                                                    
If time itself was his demeanor
There'd be no sunlight or a glimmer
Of sunlight landing on the street
Sunsuit girls must be discreet

Sunsuit girls must be discreet
Nursing their fathers locked inside
They masqueraded as his bride

I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
But there's something in your eyes that says maybe
That's never
Never say never

Slumped by the courthouse with windburned skin
That man could give a fuck about the grin
On your face as you walk by, randy as a goat
He's sleeping on papers, but he'd be warm in your coat

I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
But there's something in your eyes that says maybe
That's never
Never say never

There's no easy way to lose your sight
On the street, on the stairs, who's on your flight
Old couple walks by, as ugly as sin
But he's got her, she's got him

I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
But there's something in your eyes that says maybe
That's never
Never say never

Sunsuit girls must be discreet
Nursing their fathers locked inside
They masqueraded as his bride

Never say never
Never say never
Never say never, never, never

Sun seems to move across the sky so slow
It's us who's turning with nowhere to go
Sun seems to move across the sky so slow
Us who's turning with nowhere to go

Never say never
Never say never
Never say never, say never, say never
Never, never, never say never

I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
I might like you better if we slept together
But there's something in your eyes that says maybe
That's never
Never say never

" Loser "

                                                    Becks wife Marissa is the granddaughter of my Dad's best friend and my personal mentor the late William Judson Clark. I named my son Judd after him. (Marissa's twin brother Giovanni is a well known character actor in LA.) Beck was influenced by the Brazilian band Os Mutantes a truly unique pop-psych experimental band from the 1960's. This track was somewhat revolutionary when it came out in 1993 and ushered in a whole new era of musical experimentation.


In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey
Butane in my veins so I'm out to cut the junkie
With the plastic eyeballs, spray paint the vegetables
Dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose
Kill the headlights and put it in neutral
Stock car flamin' with a loser and the cruise control
Baby's in Reno with the vitamin D
Got a couple of couches sleep on the love seat
Someone keeps sayin' I'm insane to complain
About a shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt
Don't believe everything that you breathe
You get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve
So shave your face with some mace in the dark
Savin' all your food stamps and burnin' down the trailer park
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?

Forces of evil in a bozo nightmare
Banned all the music with a phony gas chamber
Cause one's got a weasel and the other's got a flag
One's got on the pole shove the other in a bag
With the rerun shows and the cocaine nose job
The daytime crap with the folksinger slop
He hung himself with a guitar string
Slap the turkey neck and it's hangin' on a pigeon wing
You can't write if you can't relate
Trade the cash for the beef for the body for the hate
And my time is a piece of wax fallin' on a termite
Who's chokin' on the splinters

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
(Get crazy with the Cheeze Whiz)

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
(Drive-by body pierce)

(Yo bring it on down)
Soy
(I'm a driver I'm a winner things are gonna change I can feel it)

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
(I can't believe you)

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
Sprechen Sie Deutche, baby)

Soy un perdedor
I'm a loser baby so why don't you kill me?
(Know what I'm sayin'?)

B.B. King - Don't Get Around Much Any More





My favorite B.B. King song ( and he doesn't even play Lucille). Fantastic recording (from a time when they knew how to do it !), kills on a good stereo, from the best singer in the world. Ever.

BB King Calls This One Of His Best Performances

John Lee Hooker with Muddy's band





Check out Muddy Waters dancing off stage... so good !!

Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson, Memphis Slim & Willie Dixon - Bye b...

Muddy Waters - The Howling Wolf





Muddy's great guitar work and excellent harmonica by Jerry Portnoy !

Super Super Blues Band Little Red Rooster

Roam, IndigO2 London 2013 HD HQ Audio

         

Close up video is a little distracting but the audio quality and energy of this live performance more than makes up for it IMO.
