Kraftwerk: Tour de France

Tour de Crested Butte from Tim Villabona on Vimeo.


Hi Everyone,

Has anyone else been having trouble with disqus comments lately?  They do not appear on my page or on the pages of some friends on here..JP, Cap, Progtracks…I can’t comment INSIDE (with disqus).

I’m wondering!

Here is one laid back cat.  Nestled down in the music….what could be better?

Here We Go!!

Yes, it’s Albert King with “I Get Evil”

Dontcha Lie to me, ya yellow bellied varmint, or I’ll Get Evil on Ya!


I heard Albert King’s version of this song on my way in.  This cover by The Stones was always known (by me) as “Don’t Lie to Me” but it’s also called I Get Evil….I’m trying to post Albert’s version but am having trouble (hopefully not for long).  In the meantime:

Enjoy some classic early, early Stones, even though Wayback Wednesday is over…break the rules today!

The Smiths - Well I Wonder (With Lyrics):

And here is another straight from the heart song by The Smiths.  This video was not exactly approved by them; not to bore you with the details but it’s a compromise between Morrissey and the record label at the time.  The record label’s idea.

This song seeps into your bones.  We all crave love and acceptance.  Sometimes we erect self imposed walls because on some level we feel we don’t deserve love and acceptance, so we do things and say things and refrain from doing or saying things to create a self fulfilling prophecy, which is so harmful to ourselves.  But, because of billions of reasons, timing, combinations of reasons (lies) and timing, part of us says, “Aha!  See?  I don’t deserve love—-or something like that.

Now, some people thought/think Morrissey is whiny.  But nobody can rightfully accuse him of not revealing honest, often painfully desperate and very real feelings.  His image is no gimmick.

This song is very dark and sad, but so honest and not without hope.  God, he understands people, even if he is “difficult!”


The Dunwells - I Could Be A King

Give this song a listen, okay?  I think it has great appeal.  It’s by The Dunwells, a band that includes  two brothers, Joseph and David Dunwell, in addition to pals Rob Clayton and Johnny Lamb.  They hail from Leeds, England, and they have a kind of euphoric, huge, divine sound, I think.

This song, I Could Be A King, is a great example.

Oh, Morrissey. His lyrics are at his most vulnerable here, and he’s not being witty or over the top on purpose here, so it’s a rare sincere plea without being purposefully overdramatic.. This was towards the end of the Smiths 5 year career, which gifted us with MANY songs, especailly in such a short period of time.

This is not really that way back, but I heard it earlier today and just felt compelled to post!

I was lucky enough to see Buddy Guy at Springfest back in…2002 or so.  He plays his heart out, and this song, “Where is the Next One Coming From?” just hits the bluesrock bone.  The lyrics are funny blues….I like when blues songs have over the top, amusing lyrics.  I mean, sad and tragic statements that are still funny because of exaggeration (not in all cases, but in this case, yes).

Does that make sense?  I hope so.  Either way, enjoy Buddy Guy, everyone!

For Wiz…(Moonlit Knight).  I had to come in really early today, and I tried to join your broadcast but I must have just missed it.  Too bad for me, and sorry I missed it!
