A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on his shoes

Mark Twain

I always tell the truth… even when I lie…

– Tony Montana (Scarface)




Welcome to the underground garage. I’m Little Steven.



We will discover that the truth can set you free.







You know who told me that joke? It was Orson Welles! And I’m dying if I’m lying.



Well, it sounds much nicer when you put it to music.










Before they started making operas, The Who was one of the great singles bands of the sixties.




It’s like some people say. The devil has all the good songs.








Hearts on fire
My love for you brought only misery
Hearts on fire
Put out the flames and set this cold heart free
One short year our love burned
Until at last I guess you learned
The art of being untrue and then goodbye
What could I do except to cry and moan
Lord, what have I done
Once we were as sweet and warm
As the golden morning sun
Hearts on fire
My love for you brought only misery
Hearts on fire
Put out the flames and set this cold heart free
Friends say it’s just a game
And that no one is to blame
Go out forget her lies
But she’ll be there and sparks will fly
My love has turned to hatred
Sleep escapes me still
God, please take this heart of mine
’cause if you don’t the devil will
Hearts on fire
My love for you brought only misery
Hearts on fire
Put out the flames and set this cold heart free
Hearts on fire

-Gram Parsons





I feel like we lost something when it became all guitars and no piano.




Fool me 25 times and maybe you’re Guitar Slim.




Don’t play that song for me
It brings back memories of days that I once knew
The days that I spent with you
oh no, don’t let it play
It fills my heart with pain
Please stop it right away
I remember just-a what it said
It said: “Darling, I love you”
You know that you lied
“Darling, I love you”
You know that you lied
“darling, I love you”
You know that you lied, you lied,
You lied, lied, lied, lied

Remember on our first date
You kissed me and you walked away
You were only seventeen
I never thought you’d act so mean
But baby you told me you loved me
You told me you cared
you said, “I’ll go with you darling almost anywhere
But darling, you know that you lied, lied, lied, lied, lied





It’s not about the length of the solo, it’s the feel. A lot of those blues records had more feel than you could ever put in a twenty minute solo.



She sounds like a spirited gal. Not the kind of gal that Faye Adams was singing about. At least if this next song is to be believed.




People see us everywhere.
They think you really care.
But myself, I can’t deceive,
I know it’s only make believe.

My one and only prayer, is that some day, you’ll care.
My hopes, my dreams come true, my one and only you.
No one will ever know, how much I love you so.
My only prayer will be, some day you’ll care for me,
But it’s only make believe.

My hopes, my dreams come true, my life, I’d give for you.
My heart, a wedding ring, my all, my everything.
My heart I can’t control; you rule my very soul.
My only prayer will be, some day you’ll care for me,
But it’s only make believe.

My one and only prayer, is that some day, you’ll care.
My hopes, my dreams come true, my one and only you.
No one will ever know, how much I love you so.
My only prayer will be, some day you’ll care for me,
But it’s only make believe.

-Conway Twitty



My advice, pick the one you like best and see the other two on the side!



Here’s another one of those records that I don’t know anything about






True love (your love)
True love (your love)
True love, baby
That’s what you give to me

True love (your love)
Your love (your love)
True love, baby
That’s what you give to me

God made the world
And he made it round
I got my baby
And I’m glad I found

Her love was meant for me
And my baby, she’ll always be

She gives me true love (your love)
True love (your love)
True love, baby
That’s what you give to me

Uh, true love (your love)
Your true love (your love)
True love, baby
That’s what you give to me

True love (your love)
Your love (your love)
Your love, baby
That’s what you give to me

Love was made, I don’t boast
When He made you, He made the most
You’ve got that certain touch
To me, baby, you mean so much

You give me true love (your love)
Your true love (your love)

-Carl Perkins




That’s why, til this day, if you have air conditioning in your car, you see their names. Hoii, Norm and Max.



We will discover that the truth can set you free.










We’ve been here for the past three and a half hours playing our favourite songs.



You’ve gotta take everything I say today with at least a grain if salt, cos half of what I said wasn’t true. And the other half was a lie. That’s the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Bob Dylan by Bono – The 100 Greatest Singers of All Time

Rolling Stone Magazine : 100 Greatest Singers

#7: Bob Dylan
by Bono

from Rolling Stone : 100 Greatest Singers

Key Tracks
“Like a Rolling Stone,” “Lay Lady Lay,” “Visions of Johanna”

Influenced

John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, Conor Oberst

Photo: Wilmer/Redferns/Retna Born
May 24th, 1941

It is a voice like smoke, from cigar to incense, where it’s full of wonder and worship.

Bob Dylan did what very, very few singers ever do. He changed popular singing. And we have been living in a world shaped by Dylan’s singing ever since. Almost no one sings like Elvis Presley anymore. Hundreds try to sing like Dylan. When Sam Cooke played Dylan for the young Bobby Womack, Womack said he didn’t understand it. Cooke explained that from now on, it’s not going to be about how pretty the voice is. It’s going to be about believing that the voice is telling the truth.

To understand Bob Dylan’s impact as a singer, you have to imagine a world without Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Kurt Cobain, Lucinda Williams or any other vocalist with a cracked voice, dirt-bowl yelp or bluesy street howl. It is a vast list, but so were the influences on Dylan, from the Talmudic chanting of Allen Ginsberg in “Howl” to the deadpan Woody Guthrie and Lefty Frizzell’s murmur. There is certainly iron ore in there, and the bitter cold of Hibbing, Minnesota, blowing through that voice. It’s like a knotted fist, and it allows Dylan to sing the most melancholy tunes and not succumb to sentimentality. What’s interesting is that later, as he gets older, the fist opens up, to a vulnerability. I have heard him sing versions of “Idiot Wind” where he was definitely the idiot.

I first heard Bob Dylan’s voice in the dark, when I was 13 years old, on my friend’s record player. It was his greatest-hits album, the first one. The voice was at once modern, in all the things it was railing against, and very ancient. It felt strangely familiar to an Irishman. We thought America was full of superheroes, but it was a much humbler people in these songs — farmers, people who have had great injustices done to them. The really unusual thing about Bob Dylan was that, for a moment in the Sixties, he felt like the future. He was the Voice of a Generation, raised against the generation that came before. Then he became the voice of all the generations, the voices in the ground — these ghosts from the Thirties and the Dust Bowl, the romance of Gershwin and the music hall. For me, the pictures of him in his polka-dot shirt, the Afro and pointy shoes — that was a brief flash of lightning. His voice is usually put to the service of more ancient characters.

Here are some of the adjectives I have found myself using to describe that voice: howling, seducing, raging, indignant, jeering, imploring, begging, hectoring, confessing, keening, wailing, soothing, conversational, crooning. It is a voice like smoke, from cigar to incense, where it’s full of wonder and worship. There is a voice for every Dylan you can meet, and the reason I’m never bored of Bob Dylan is because there are so many of them, all centered on the idea of pilgrimage. People forget that Bob Dylan had to warm up for Dr. King before he made his great “I have a dream” speech — the preacher preceded by the pilgrim. Dylan has tried out so many personas in his singing because it is the way he inhabits his subject matter. His closet won’t close for all the shoes of the characters that walk through his stories.

I love that album Shot of Love. There’s no production. You’re in a room hearing him sing. And I like a lot of the songs that he worked on with Daniel Lanois — “Series of Dreams,” “Most of the Time,” “Dignity.” That is the period where he moves me most. The voice becomes the words. There is no performing, just life — as Yeats says, when the dancer becomes the dance.

Dylan did with singing what Brando did with acting. He busted through the artifice to get to the art. Both of them tore down the prissy rules laid down by the schoolmarms of their craft, broke through the fourth wall, got in the audience’s face and said, “I dare you to think I’m kidding.”

Classic Music Images – Bob Dylan : "Like a Rolling Stone" sessions (1965)

[bob1965.jpg]

Photograph by Don Hunstein/MOA/Getty Images

“What I’m doing now, its a whole other thing,” Bob Dylan said at the time of the 1965 “Like a Rolling Stone” sessions at Columbia’s Studio A in New York.

We’re not playing rock music. It’s not a hard sound. I don’t know what it is.

McCartney knew: “He showed all of us that it’s possible to go a little further.”

Theme Time Radio Hour, your home for
what Dreams, who Themes and why Schemes

Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers

– Voltaire

“You’ve written a couple of songs Bob. You got any advice?”

– caller “Bob”





Maybe there’s a guy walking by. He’s walking home to see his wife.Or he’s walking away from his wife. Or his wife’s waiting for him. Or she’s not waiting for him. Or she’s with someone else.



All you’ve got to do is get outside of your own head







As a younger man, I thought about going into journalism.



Do you take this man to be your lawful wedded wife?











Are you having a good time? Are you enjoying yourself? Are you comfortable?




Here’s “Who do you love?” Or should that be “Whom do you love?” We’ll look that up and get back to you.






What is this thing called love?
This funny thing called love?
Just who can solve its mystery?
Why should it make a fool of me?

I saw you there one wonderful day
You took my heart and threw it away
That’s why I ask the lord in heaven above
What is this thing called love?


-Cole Porter





Rudyard Kipling, questionable poet


There will be a quiz at the end of today’s broadcast.





I’ve talked to your Mother, and I’ve talked to your Dad
They say they’ve tried but it’s all in vain
I’ve begged and I’ve pleaded, I’ve even got mad
Now we must face it, you give me a pain

Oh, How can I miss you when you wont go away
Keep on telling you, day after day
But you wont listen, you always stay and stay
How Can I Miss You, When You won’t Go Away?
How can I miss you, when you wont go away

Your never ending presence, really cramps my style
I dreamed, that it wont always be the same
At first I was attracted, but after a while
Have you ever heard of, a hard to get dame

Out of three billion people, why must it be me
Oh why, oh why won’t you cut me loose
Just do me a favour, and listen to my plea
I’m not the only chicken on the roost


Dan Hicks



David Bowie sings a song about a city of them.



Perhpas they were invoking the Socratic Method.




I’ve been made blue.
I’ve been lied to.
When will I be loved?
I’ve been turned down.
I’ve been pushed ’round.
When will I be loved?

When I meet a new girl,
That I want for mine,
She always breaks my heart in two.
It happens every time.

I’ve been cheated.
Been mistreated.
When will I be loved?

When I meet a new girl,
That I want for mine,
She always breaks my heart in two.
It happens every time.

I’ve been cheated,
Been mistreated.
When will I be loved?
When will I be loved?
When will I be loved?

– Phil Everly



He was the son of noted sex bomb, Mamie Van Doren.



Socrates, looking for truth until the very end.








Another riddle for the ages was the riddle of the sphinx



As I always say, you don’t dance to the information.






Alan Freed was a big fan of this record. Or maybe he just got paid to be a big fan of this record. I’d like to think he was really a big fan cos I like the record.



I just love the word “sphico”

It’ll be no surprise to you that we’re coming from Costa Rica this week



I don’t know anything about Ray Batts. Except this song.







Delmore Schwartz, candy covered poet.

If you gotta go to jail, don’t tell them you’re in there for stealing sugar!







Listen to that Bo Diddley beat.

Sammy what were you thinking?




I’ve got a secret
I ain’t gonna tell
I’m goin’ to heaven in a split pea shell
Oh, Lordy me, didn’t we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn

I pawned my watch, an’ I pawned my chain
[Even I don’t deserve myself, so ?] ashamed
Oh, Lordy me, didn’t we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn

I’ve got a song to sing
Ain’t very long
I’m gonna sing it right if it take me all night long
Oh, Lordy me, didn’t we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn

I’ve got a secret
I ain’t gonna tell
I’m goin’ to heaven in a split pea shell
Oh, Lordy me, didn’t we shake sugaree
Everything I have is down in pawn

– Elizabeth Cotten





I guess this blows our chance of doing an entire bear show.


I don’t know much about the medieval lollipop.




Here lies the powder and perfume
The pretty clothes are scattered ’round the room
And it’s so like Candy

Here lies the lipstick and the face
The coloured tablets keep it all in place
And it’s so like Candy
So like Candy

What did I do to make her go
Why must she be the one
That I have to love
So like Candy

Here lies a picture of a girl
Her arms are tight around that lucky guy
And it’s so like Candy

And in her eyes a certain look
I thought I’d seen the last of long ago
And it’s so like Candy
So like Candy

I remember the day that picture was taken
We were so happy then
But that’s so like Candy
She seemed so sweet to me I was mistaken
Oh no not that again
But that’s so like Candy
She just can’t face the day
So she turns and melts away

Here lie the records that she scratched
And on the sleeve I find a note attached
And it’s so like Candy
“My Darling Dear it’s such a waste”
She couldn’t say “goodbye”, but “I admire your taste”
And it’s so like Candy
So like Candy


– Elvis Costello / Paul McCartney





Francis Copolla is opening a new vineyard down here and he invited us down. And I’d do anything for Francis.

What was he doing for those twenty years? Mostly fishing. And they called him ‘Lazy’?




In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
There’s a land that’s fair and bright
Where the handouts grow on bushes
And you sleep out ev’ry night
Where the boxcars are all empty
And the sun shines ev’ry day
Oh, I’m bound to go where there ain’t no snow
Where the rain don’t fall and the wind don’t blow
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

Oh, the buzzin’ of the bees in the peppermint trees
‘Round the soda water fountains
Where the lemonade springs and the bluebird sings
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains

In the Big Rock Candy Mountains
You never change your socks
And little streams of lemonade
Come a-tricklin’ down the rocks
The hobos there are friendly
And their fires all burn bright
There’s a lake of stew …and soda, too
You can paddle all around ’em in a big canoe
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

Oh, the buzzin’ of the bees in the peppermint trees
‘Round the soda water fountains
Where the lemonade springs and the bluebird sings
In the Big Rock Candy Mountains


– Harry Mc Clintock




Well Candy, you’re not dreaming. And you’re not crazy.

I think here at TTRH we’re all grown ups, so why don’t we listen to the original version.




It’s not that I like old music. It’s just that I’m not hearing anything like that from out of left field nowadays.

Listen to the drums on this record. They’re quite good ….. You owe me five bucks, Jim!

Let’s start on the straight and narrow


In Sweden the number’s 80000. I don’t see how that saves any time!





There’s no helping some people!



It worked out well for everybody. Well, except maybe for Decca Records.








This was years before he walked down Electric Avenue.


Let’s cross over to the other side of the law now. That’s where you find the really interesting people.



Breakin’ rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won
I fougth the law and the law won

I needed money ’cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
She was the best girl that I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Robbin’ people with a six-gun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and the good fun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

I miss my baby and I feel so bad
I guess my race is run
She was the best girl that I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Sonny Curtis




I think I got this for a quarter. And I’m giving it to you for free.


I’ve got a friend named Stan. He’s not very smart.



If you’ll gather ’round me, children,
A story I will tell
‘Bout Pretty Boy Floyd, an outlaw,
Oklahoma knew him well.

It was in the town of Shawnee,
A Saturday afternoon,
His wife beside him in his wagon
As into town they rode.

There a deputy sheriff approached him
In a manner rather rude,
Vulgar words of anger,
An’ his wife she overheard.

Pretty Boy grabbed a log chain,
And the deputy grabbed his gun;
In the fight that followed
He laid that deputy down.

Then he took to the trees and timber
To live a life of shame;
Every crime in Oklahoma
Was added to his name.

But a many a starving farmer
The same old story told
How the outlaw paid their mortgage
And saved their little homes.

Others tell you ’bout a stranger
That come to beg a meal,
Underneath his napkin
Left a thousand dollar bill.

It was in Oklahoma City,
It was on a Christmas Day,
There was a whole car load of groceries
Come with a note to say:

Well, you say that I’m an outlaw,
You say that I’m a thief.
Here’s a Christmas dinner
For the families on relief.

Yes, as through this world I’ve wandered
I’ve seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.

And as through your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won’t never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.

– Woody Guthrie


I wanted to talk about Jack the Ripper. I wanted to talk about Don King.


I fought the law and guess who won.




Well I’m running police on my back
I’ve been hiding police on my back
There was a shooting police on my back
And the victim well he wont come back

What have I done?

I been running monday tuesday wednesday
Thursday friday saturday sunday runnin
Monday tuesday wednesday thursday friday
Saturday sunday

Yes, I’m running down the railway track
Could you help me? police on my back
They will catch me if I dare drop back
Wont you give me all the speed I lack

– Eddy Grant



That’s what we call a “way homer”.



We’re going to play one quarter of his recorded output.


You’re not going to believe this story.







That’s not just a law. That’s just common sense.


Whenever a law is broken you can be sure that we’ll be there. I’m not going to tell you which side we’re going to be on. But we’ll be there.

Best Bob Dylan Impressions/ Parodies by Other Musicians/Celebrities


Aside from the Seuss thing, a few good Dylan impressions/ parodies here!

10. Joan Baez in “Mary Hamilton (Bob Dylan version)”

As well as this one, Baez has another hilarious parody in a version of “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” in which she sings all the questions (“Where have you been, my blue-eyed boy?” etc.) in her beautiful voice and all the answers in great nasally Dylan twang! Very strange and funny.

9. Benny Hill sketch

A Dylan parody by the late Benny Hill.

8. Paul Simon in “A Simple Desultory Philippic” by Simon and Garfunkel


[no embedding on this one, sorry]

6. Frank Skinner sketch

During an episode of The Frank Skinner Show, UK comedian Skinner does a parody of a Bob Dylan song bizarrely involving the news story of a man from Scotland beating HIV.

6. Weird Al Yankovic in “Bob” by Weird Al Yankovic



5. Hugh Laurie in A Bit of Fry and Laurie


[no embedding on this one either]

4. Ed Mann in “Flakes” by Frank Zappa



(At 1:19 in the video)

Note: the studio version of this one was done by Adrian Belew, an impression probably better than Mann’s. This one’s great too, though.

3. John C. Reilly in Walk Hard




2. John Lennon in an unreleased solo track






1. Mark Knopfler – his entire career!!

Bob Dylan – Hard Times (1993)

There’s a song that will linger forever in our ears


We’ve written before about Stephen Foster’s magnificent and timeless Hard Times Come Again No More and posted a nice performance by Kate & Anna McGarrigle and friends.

Here’s s fine Bob Dylan performance of the song from a recording at Austin City Limits Studio back in 28 April 1993.

Bob of course recorded the song under the shortened title Hard Times on his excellent 1992 LP Good as I Been to You.

This album, Dylan’s 28th studio album, was composed entirely of traditional folk songs and covers, and was Dylan’s first entirely solo, acoustic album since Another Side of Bob Dylan in 1964. It was also his first collection to not feature any original compositions.

Good as I Been to You helped to restore Dylan’s critical standing following disappointing reviews for Under the Red Sky.

Bob recorded the song using an arrangement by renowned Irish folk band De Dannan, who had recorded the song in 1983. Interestingly, the album notes identifies “Hard Times” as public domain, as it was published in 1855, and naughtily excludes a credit to Foster!

Dylan here delivers a great, sparse, acoustic interpretation in the live setting, with a beautiful arrangement helped to no little extent by a top class band.

This comes from the TV Special – later released on DVD – called Willie Nelson: The Big Six-O celebrating Willie’s 60th birthday.

The birthday tribute, with an all star cast was filmed as a TV special over two days in April ’93 and shown on TV in late May ’93.

The TV Special included musical performances of songs either written by or performed by Nelson, as well as birthday greetings and favorite stories about the singer by his friends.

Musical performers included the likes of Bob Dylan, Waylon Jennings, and Neil Young, while a wide array of well wishers ranged from Jane Seymour to Kris Kristofferson to Bill Clinton!

Yap, Billy loves Willie!

We thought Clinton was too busy inserting cigars in strange places back in those days to appear on tributes to C&W stars!

Willie Nelson has included Hard Times in his repertoire for years and would later record the song with David Grisman, on Darol Anger’s Heritage in 2005.

John Lennon Interview: Larry Kane, Baltimore September 1964

“I once received a bra with ‘I Love John’ embroidered on it. I thought it was pretty original. I didn’t keep it, mind you – It didn’t fit.”

Fascinating interview with Jack Lennon – sorry John Lennon – during the Beats’ seminal 1964 North American tour – from the excellent Beatles Ultimate Experience

Some wonderful, typically Lennon, ripostes and banter! You can see the genesis of John’s love affair with the States.

ABOUT THIS INTERVIEW:

On this date, the Beatles arrived in Maryland for their performance at Baltimore’s Civic Center. John Lennon was interviewed by Larry Kane as part of an on-going series of interviews with the group. Kane was the only American reporter allowed to travel with the Beatles during their 1964 North American tour, and also accompanied them on their 1965 tour.

Larry Kane has authored the insightful books, “Lennon Revealed” (2005) and “Ticket To Ride” (2003) documenting his conversations with the group and also his first-hand accounts of behind-the-scenes events as they happened.

– Jay Spangler, Beatles Ultimate Experience

Q: “John, occasionally we see magazine articles, like last night, one that had your name as ‘Jack Lennon’ and all these irregularities. What do you think of this when you look at them?”

JOHN: “Well, I just think the people are stupid, you know, if they’re not gonna bother to take enough time to do a job and find out what our names are… and try and get the facts right, you know. They must be a bit soft.”

Q: “There are alot of people who have albums out with your music on it, like this ‘Chipmunk’ album, and the ‘Boston Pops.’ Do you find this a credit to you, or an abortion of your songs.”

JOHN: “No, we enjoy it! We always try to get a copy of these people that do our songs. The thing about the ‘Chipmunks’ and the ‘Boston…’ they do it so differently from us and from each other– it’s very interesting. And also we, Paul and I, get alot of money when they make these so it’s very good for us, you know.”

Q: “There is a cut in it for you when they do record these songs.”

JOHN: “Yeah, ‘cuz we compose them, you know, so we get the… a good lot of money.”

Q: “John, when you were in New York, what did you like best about it?”

JOHN: “I just like cities, you see, and preferably big ones. That’s why I liked it. And we met some good people like Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, you know, and I enjoy meeting people I admire.”

Q: “Do you like to play better indoors or outdoors?”

JOHN: “Indoors. I don’t like playing outdoors. You can’t hear and you get blown to pieces.”

Q: “Like last night.”

JOHN: “Oh! That was dreadful!”

Q: “John, any particular reason that you chose the songs that you did for the current concerts?”

JOHN: “We took a sort of aggregate of the most popular ones in the States over the last couple of months.”

Q: “Your early songs and your latest songs.”

JOHN: “Yeah. We missed-out alot of the earlier ones, like uhh… I can’t think of any, but I’m sure we missed some out.”

Q: “There’s so many rumors going around and one of the jobs I like to do is either to confirm them or dispel them. There’s a big rumor in alot of magazines and papers that you’re coming back (to America) in January.”

JOHN: “Well, I don’t know… might be true. I haven’t a clue. Nobody’s told me if we are, you know.”

Q: “Everyone asks what you like… What’s your pet peeve? What is the thing that you dislike the most in the world?”

JOHN: “Having things thrown at us on-stage. Jellybeans and rubbish and that.”

Q: “This is your pet peeve in your whole life.”

JOHN: “Yeah, ‘cuz it hurts.”

Q: (laughs)

JOHN: (giggles) “You can’t carry on singing and laughing with things hitting you.”

Q: “How many other instruments do you play if you play any?”

JOHN: “A bit of piano, and a bit of mouth organ.”

Q: “Have you played the organ… umm… mouth organ on any of your songs?”

JOHN: “Well, all the… yeah. There’s quite a few we did with mouth organ. I played it on the early hits– ‘Please Please Me,’ ‘From Me To You,’ ‘Love Me Do,’ ‘Little Child’ from the LP, ‘I Should Have Known Better’ on the film– I stuck mouth organ on that.”

Q: “When you’re over here, do you miss England? Do you ever get a little homesick even though you’re achieving great success over here, and you’re having some good times?”

JOHN: “Oh yeah. You get homesick, alright. Every other day (laughs) only!”

Q: “What about the gifts? I notice more and more you’ve been getting more and more gifts from fans. What was the most unusual gift you’ve ever received? I know there’s so many– Is there one that sticks out in your mind?”

JOHN: (laughs) “I once received a bra…”

Q: (laughs) “You did?”

JOHN: “…with ‘I Love John’ embroidered on it. I thought it was pretty original. I didn’t keep it, mind you– It didn’t fit.”

Q: “How did you like Key West?”

JOHN: (jokingly) “It was alright for a swamp. (laughs) No, it wasn’t bad, you know.”

Q: “When you’re out there, you do alot of lead (vocal) on most of the songs. Have you ever had a point during your concerts where you ever had a loss, a mental-block in your head as to what to do next?”

JOHN: “Yeah. I’m the one that often gets it– suddenly go blank and I don’t know what I’m singing or playing or anything, you know. I just forget, and all the rest sort of tell me what’s happening.”

Q: “You mentioned these jellybeans and everything. Does it hamper your work… besides making you frightened of the fact that it might hit your eye or something… does it hamper your work?”

JOHN: “Yeah. You can’t play if they keep hitting you, you know. You keep stopping ‘cuz it’s natural– you sort of duck, you know, and you stop playing. But it’s been quite good– it’s stopped now. So I suppose we should stop talking about it.”

Q: “Here’s a question alot of people will think it kind of ridiculous to ask entertainers this, but I’m going to because alot of people are interested in your opinion. So much of these world conflicts going on– everybody’s fighting each other. What would be your personal solution to stopping war? What way or method?”

JOHN: “I don’t think there is one, you know. Not if everybody was all rich and happy, and each country had all they wanted, they’d still want the next bit. I don’t think there’ll ever be any solution… only, just, you know, a sort of power block where everybody’s got the same weapons.”

Q: “There was a big rumor out around the country– as you know there’s so many rumors– about Ringo having a throat operation. And this was cleared up last night with this ‘tonsil’ bit.”

JOHN: “Yeah, he’s having his tonsils out when we get back to Britain, then go after the British tour.”

Q: “Has there ever been one rumor that’s particularly peeved you?”

JOHN: “Umm, me leaving the group… and my wife being pregnant.”

Q: “You mean, having a baby next month?”

JOHN: “Yeah.”

Q: “There’s been alot of criticism by Americans of the fact that there’s so many groups that are coming out that have no originality, from England, that are all trying to copy you. Now we know there’s a handful that are really doing very well over here, as well as you…”

JOHN: “Yeah.”

Q: “…Does it ever bother you that certain groups will copy you completely whatever you do?”

JOHN: “No, because everybody knows, you know. Only the dumbest people don’t know that they’re copying us, you know. So it’s just a laugh when you see a big imitation of you going ’round. They never really make it. They might have a hit, but nobody’s fooled for long.”

Q: “Does anybody ever ask you for advice– another group, let’s say?”

JOHN: “Younger groups, you know, that are just sort of forming. But there’s no advice you can give really. Just keep playing and hope for the best.”

Q: “I notice that you have this guitar with you, and I notice you strum it quite a bit. Where do you get your ideas for songs? Do you ever get them sitting in a dressing room, or in a hotel room? Is it a planned session, or do you just come across an idea?”

JOHN: “No, I just come across one. I could happen any minute… (strums wildly and yells) Noww-yyo-oumpfff!!! You see… like that!”

Q: (laughs) “Have you written any on this current tour?”

JOHN: “Two.”

Q: “You don’t have the names or anything like that?”

JOHN: “I know the names, but we don’t give them ‘cuz people turn out songs with the same name, you know.”

Q: “I’m not that familiar with the music business, myself.”

JOHN: “Well that’s what happens. You think of a name that’s original, and you broadcast it, and somebody will make a record with the same name and a different song. And it gets confusing, you know.”

Q: “When you first came over to this country in February and I met you briefly in Miami, were you shocked by the reaction? Were you worried about your reaction over here, personally– the crowds and everything else?”

JOHN: “Well, we never expected to… didn’t expect to sell records or anything over here. So we were just amazed. (giggles) And we still are, you know.”

Q: “Was the American market your main goal after conquering England”

JOHN: “Yeah, well, every British artist used to imagine trying to get… you get the odd hit from Britain, or you get the odd hit from Germany– there’s alot of freak records. But nobody ever sort of made it in America, and we were dying to be the first.”

Q: “I know there’s a record over here of ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’ in German, or ‘She Loves you,’ one or the other.”

JOHN: “Both of them.”

Q: “Have you done them any other languages”

JOHN: “No, the Germans are the only ones that won’t buy you in English. You have to kow-tow to the Germans. But after you’ve made a couple of records they’ll buy anything.”

Q: “I know the police have generally done a great job on this current tour, but what do you think personally about some of them trying to get autographs and going out of the line of duty? You know, you’ve seen so many of them come back in the plane– and to me, this may be a little strong, but it’s sort of a bribe. What do you think of this?”

JOHN: “Well, some of the police do sort of– ‘You sign this or we won’t help you’ but most of them are just normal fellas, and you get sort of lousy people in any organization. You get a couple of lousy cops who sort of threaten you or… not threaten you with violence, but sort of ‘Unless you sign me eighty of these I’m not gonna look after you.’ But they’re no worse than any people in any organization. You get bums everywhere.”

Q: “This is your first tour that you’ve actually seen all of America, and up to now you’ve seen about every section. Off your role as a performer, what do you think of America as a country– the cities and the land and the people?”

JOHN: “I think it’s marvelous, you know. I like it, and especially places like New York and Hollywood, you know. I like the big places. And it’s amazing to see a place like Los Vegas. Who ever thought of building a place in the middle of a desert, (giggles) you know. Things like that are marvelous.”

Q: “Do you ever have any differences on-stage or off-stage?”

JOHN: “Off-stage are the same differences that normal people have or friends have, you know, but they’re never violent or they never last long. We always settle our argument, you know.”

Q: “Everybody says you’re gonna break up. This is another rumor. It’s all over.”

JOHN: “That’s alot of rubbish, you know. It’s just rubbish. We’ve never even thought of it.”

Q: “We were reading those fan magazines, and I plan to show you a few more because some of them are unbelievable.”

JOHN: “Yeah.”

Q: “I don’t know who prints them. I know you laughed when you saw the name Jack Lennon on the page the other night, and I laughed too. Has it ever really bugged you that they get your name wrong?”

JOHN: “No. It’s always made me laugh when people get my name wrong. Like, there was one DJ today who said, ‘This is so-and-so from so-and-so station, talking to John Harrison here,’ and I just creased up but I never told him, you know. He found out by himself at the end. But it’s just funny, you know. If they can’t get your name right, well, (comical voice) God help ’em, that’s what I say!”

Q: “You talked about playing in-doors and outdoors. I noticed the other night, even though you had a forty mile an hour, or thirty mile an hour wind in Jacksonville– I don’t know if you knew it was that high…”

JOHN: (giggles) “It felt like a hundred mile an hour one to me.”

Q: “…you still didn’t have any trouble getting out the song. Do you try to acclimate yourself to this, or did it really bother you the other night?”

JOHN: “Yeah, you know. We’d never been through a thing like that. We were most sort of awkward with… all our hair was blowing up– we all looked like four Elvis Presleys or something. (giggles) We just felt uncomfortable with all that wind.”

Q: “John, thank you very much. It’s been nice working with you.”

JOHN: “Great working with you, Larry.”

Bob Dylan Oscar Acceptance Speech for "Things Have Changed"

This is a song which doesn’t pussyfoot around nor turn a blind eye to human nature


A wonderful moment for Bob. A wonderful moment for real music. A victory for true art amongst the morass.

Dylan rightly picks up the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2000 for the sublime “Things Have Changed”, a work we’ve written about before HERE.

The song appeared in the Curtis Hanson film Wonder Boys and was released as a single on May 1, 2000.

Dylan here gives a very modest, brief, intelligent and gracious speech. Just as it should be done. All those gurning actor nominees should take note!

It’s quite uncharacteristic actually of Bob to give such a “normal” speech. Tony Garnier seems to think so anyway. See him cracking up behind Dylan! He’s never seen “Normal Bob” before!

God bless you with peace, tranquility, and goodwill, indeed your Bobness!

Rumours Flying About New Bob Dylan Album

Interesting piece from www.rollingstone.com

Photo: Caulfield/WireImage

While the Smoking Section is in no position to confirm or deny the existence of a spankin’ new studio album by Bob Dylan, we thought we should tell you about some of the news we’ve read on hardcore Dylan fan sites.

A post at neverendingpool.com reads, “A completely new Bob Dylan album is in the can. Our understanding is that the album was recorded last October in California…. The album is expected to contain ten tracks… There are also rumors that the musicians are not all from the current touring band.”
Another site elaborates, “Donnie Herron [who plays a variety of stringed instruments in Dylan’s band] did say that they cut several songs with Mike Campbell [of the Heartbreakers] at a large L.A. studio. I know Benmont Tench [the Heartbreakers’ keyboard player] was also working on that project.”
Sounds pretty sick, right?
Looks like the hypothetical album may be released in late April.
Dylan is on such a ridiculously hot streak right now — Modern Times and Love & Theft, not to mention Telltale Signs — that this new shit is definitely going to blow our minds!

Richard Gere told me something the Dalai Lama once said



by daniellekiemel

Well I never kept a dollar past sunset,
It always burned a hole in my pants.
Never made a school mama happy,
Never blew a second chance, oh no

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Always took candy from strangers,
Didn’t wanna get me no trade.
Never want to be like papa,
Working for the boss ev’ry night and day.

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love, baby won’t ya keep me happy.
Baby, won’t ya keep me happy.
Baby, please keep me

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Never got a flash out of cocktails,
When I got some flesh off the bone.
Never got a lift out of Lear jets,
When I can fly way back home.

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

– M. Jagger/K. Richards

I was so tired of being upset
Always wanting something I never could get
Life’s an illusion love is a dream
But I don’t know what it is

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

I was so tired of being upset
Always wanting something I never could get
Life’s an illusion love is a dream
But I don’t know what it is ‘cos

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Life’s an illusion love is the dream
But I don’t know what it is
Everyone’s saying things to me
But I know it’s okay okay

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Life’s an illusion love is a dream
Life’s an illusion love is the dream
Life’s the illusion love is a dream
Life’s the illusion love is the dream

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays
Todays are good

Bet you are tired of being upset
Always wanting something you never can get
Life’s no illusion love’s not a dream
Now I know just what it is

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

I want to be happy
But I won’t be happy
Till I make you happy, too

Life’s really worth living
When we are mirth-giving
Why can’t I give some to you?

When skies are gray
And you say you are blue
I’ll send the sun smiling through

I want to be happy
But I won’t be happy
Till I make you happy, too

Happiness is a warm gun.

– John Lennon



Theme Time Radio Hour, your home for delirious
Dreams, happy Themes and ecstatic Schemes

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.


– Oscar Wilde


Happiness depends upon ourselves.

– Aristotle

by punkshits




Way to make lemonade, Jackie.


You know who’s really happy? The guy that got paid to do this research! Probably hadn’t even have to leave his house.




Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.

– Ernest Hemingway



Some people have to get high to make other people happy


I agree. So says me.




The U. S. Constitution doesn’t guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it.

– Benjamin Franklin





Yes indeedy-do, I could not be happier to be with you today!


Richard Gere told me something the Dalai Lama once said



by daniellekiemel

Well I never kept a dollar past sunset,
It always burned a hole in my pants.
Never made a school mama happy,
Never blew a second chance, oh no

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Always took candy from strangers,
Didn’t wanna get me no trade.
Never want to be like papa,
Working for the boss ev’ry night and day.

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love, baby won’t ya keep me happy.
Baby, won’t ya keep me happy.
Baby, please keep me

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

Never got a flash out of cocktails,
When I got some flesh off the bone.
Never got a lift out of Lear jets,
When I can fly way back home.

I need a love to keep me happy,
I need a love to keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.
Baby, baby keep me happy.

– M. Jagger/K. Richards




I can’t promise I’m going to make you happy but I’m going to do my darnedest


There’s a name for people who want to go where you go. They’re called stalkers.



by Djabolica

I was so tired of being upset
Always wanting something I never could get
Life’s an illusion love is a dream
But I don’t know what it is

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

I was so tired of being upset
Always wanting something I never could get
Life’s an illusion love is a dream
But I don’t know what it is ‘cos

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Life’s an illusion love is the dream
But I don’t know what it is
Everyone’s saying things to me
But I know it’s okay okay

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

Life’s an illusion love is a dream
Life’s an illusion love is the dream
Life’s the illusion love is a dream
Life’s the illusion love is the dream

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays
Todays are good

Bet you are tired of being upset
Always wanting something you never can get
Life’s no illusion love’s not a dream
Now I know just what it is

Everybody’s happy nowadays
Everybody’s happy nowadays

– Pete Shelley



I don’t know about you but I’m feeling high and happy


Elmore James. Not to be confused with James Ellroy, noted crime writer.



by R_A_e


I want to be happy
But I won’t be happy
Till I make you happy, too

Life’s really worth living
When we are mirth-giving
Why can’t I give some to you?

When skies are gray
And you say you are blue
I’ll send the sun smiling through

I want to be happy
But I won’t be happy
Till I make you happy, too


– Vincent Youmans / Irving Caesar



Make-up sex is a pretty good reason for fighting in the first place


Feng Shui isn’t just important for humans.





by superKeci


How much did they spend on this research? I could have told them that!


Elmore James did not die in a sportscar




by wint3r88



That’s your plain vanilla stalker


How’re things in Bangor, Nelly?







I could go all day with Will Rogers quotes. And don’t get me started with the lariat.


It’s time to wish you ‘happy trails’!

Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour

Madness (special extended show)

Original Airdate February 4, 2009

Theme Time Radio Hour, your home for crazy
Dreams, loopy Themes and psycho Schemes

I have seen the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness

– Allen Ginsberg

Great wits are sure to madness near aligned

-William Shakespeare



Crazy
Crazy for feeling so lonely
I’m crazy
Crazy for feeling so blue

I knew
Youd love me as long as you wanted
And then someday
Youd leave me for somebody new

Worry
Why do I let myself worry
Wondrin
What in the world did I do

Crazy
For thinking that my love could hold you
I’m crazy for tryin
Crazy for cryin
And Im crazy
For lovin you

– Willie Nelson


Do vague acquaintances treat you as they know you far better than you would expect?


If craziness was a continent this would be the National Anthem.


Few things go together as well as Country and Western music and madness






It’s so relieving
To know that you’re leaving as soon as you get paid
It’s so relaxing
To hear that you’re asking whenever you get your way
It’s so soothing
To know that you’ll sue me, this is starting to sound the same

I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad

In her false witness, we hope you’re still with us,
To see if they float or drown
My favorite patient, a display of patience,
Disease-covered Puget Sound
She’ll come back as fire, And burn all the liars,
leave a blanket of ash on the ground

I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad

It’s so relieving
To know that you’re leaving as soon as you get paid
It’s so relaxing
To know that you’re asking wherever you get your way
It’s so soothing
To know that you’ll sue me, this is starting to sound the same

I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad
I miss the comfort in being sad

– Kurt Cobain




Time flies where you’re talking crazy



I’m getting excited again. Let’s just play the record.




I consider William Faulkner to be the Mose Allison of Jazz




Step right up and buy a bottle now folks!




In a buildin’ tall with a stone wall around
there’s a rubber room
When a man sees things and hears sounds
that’s not there
He’s headed for the rubber room
Illusions in a twisted mind
to save from self-destruction
hmm it’s the rubber room
Where a man can run into the wall
till his strength makes him fall and lie still
And wait for help in the rubber room
From his blurry vision of doom
a psycho in the rubber room
The man in the room right next to mine
screams a woman’s name
hits the wall in vain
He’s in the rubber room
I hear footsteps poundin’ on the floor
God I hope they don’t stop at my door
Hmm I’m in the rubber room
Now they’ve come to get me but they find
I’m a screamin’ pretty words tryin’ to make ’em rhyme
I’m n the rubber room hmm
a psycho I’m in the rubber room hmm


– Porter Wagoner





I’m almost frightened to go to the phones but I think we should



Farewell Frances. Farewell Kurt.

Unmissable Rockumentaries


Some classics in this list of Unmissable Rockumentaries from djbrittman.blogspot.com

Who the fuck needs to go to over-priced gigs where the band’s about a mile away, where there are drunk assholes spilling drinks on you, where the beer costs an arm and a leg and tastes like piss, where you have to punch some moron for pinching your girlfriend’s ass, and where the bathroom – if you can find it – is blanketed with an ocean of urine and other unmentionables!

Stay home and watch these instead!

The seminal, magnificent, timeless Don’t Look Back has got to be on top of any list of music documentaries!

Not far behind – though not listed here – would be the infamous banned Stones film “Cocksucker Blues“, covering the band’s 1972 tour of the States in support of their greatest album Exile on Main Street.

The Rolling Stones – Cocksucker Blues extract

Another fine film in this genre which would be in our top ten is the Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds documentary The Road to God Knows Where (1990), a gritty film which explores the mundane reality of being a band touring the States in a bus!

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – The Road to God Knows Where (1990)


from djbrittman.blogspot.com

18. Wattstax (1973)

“A soulful expression of the Black experience,” comments Richard Pryor in the first of many personal interludes on this disc. Shot at the Los Angeles Convention, the ’72 Wattstax Music Festival commemorated the seventh anniversary of the Watts Riots. Funk, Soul, Blues, Gospel, or R&B, the tickets were a buck and was the “African-American answer to Woodstock”. The Bar-Kays get my vote for “Best Band Wardrobe Ever.” Check it out to remind you that Blues is where Rock came from.

17. The Decline of Western Civilization Pt. II: The Metal Years (1988)

The second installment of director Penelope Spheeris rock-u-trilogy explores the glam-metal scene of Los Angeles in the mid 80s. We are talking teased hair, tight pants, jangly jewelry, and plenty of eye shadow. And that’s just the guys! This is an era of excess: sleazy chicks, monster riffs, and doped-up dudes. Watch this film for an interview with Ozzy where he’s cooking breakfast and actually speaking coherently.

16. D.O.A. (1980)

Chronicling the formative years of punk, this one is a bit hard to come by. Much like a shower is hard to come by for anyone in this film. Containing mostly footage of the Sex Pistols (their only North American tour before disbanding), this is a grimy, low-budget glimpse at the turning tide of the punk movement. And that low budget reality is the exact reason why it’s worth watching.

15. Heavy Metal in Baghdad (2008)

From VICE, this documentary follows Acrassicauda, an Iraqi heavy metal band in the middle of “the shit”. Homeboys had their practice space hit with a SCUD missile. These guys aren’t playing to get laid. They are playing to get out of the warzone. Then get laid. Watch this doc because it’s just an incredible story.

14. American Hardcore– 2006

The real stand out quality of American Hardcore is the photography. And the fact that a lot of the founding members of the movement are still breathing. The film takes you through the formative years of the Hardcore scene, interviewing big names like Rollins, Flea, and Moby as well as the obscure yet iconic likes of Keith Morris and Brian Baker. Watch it to get educated.

13. Funky Monks (1992)

The Red Hot Chili Peppers hole up in Houdini’s haunted mansion with the world’s biggest vegan, Rick Rubin, to record Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik. A penetrating look into the lives of the guys who once wore socks on their dorks. This clip shows a drum take from the song Breaking The Girl. Not since Sanford & Son has playing with trash worked so well. See if to remind you that dudes like Rick Rubin are what make Rock possible.

12. Stop Making Sense (1984)

This live performance by the Talking Heads, directed by the late Jonathan Demme*, is a no-frills affair. You soon realize that without said “gimmicks”, the performance speaks for itself. It’s also more of a conceptual concert movie than a rockumentary. There are no lasers, smoke machines, or quick cuts to bare breasts (unfortunately). Check it out to remind you how utterly acceptable it was to be a weirdo in the 80’s.

*Jonathan Demme has recently come back from the dead. He is a zombie.

11. End Of The Century: The Story of The Ramones (2004)

This is the definitive DVD of punk band The Ramones. Set over 22 years, the mop-topped rockers go from playing two-minute songs at CBGB’s to being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This clip is of Dee Dee Ramone’s brief venture into hip-hop. Classic. Hey! Oh! Let’s Go! (-to-the-video-store-and-learn-about-the-shirt-I-just-bought). Watch it so when you see people with the shirt on, you can know the story.

10. Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers: Runnin’ Down a Dream (2007)

Tom Petty has always reminded me of Martina Navratilova. This 2-disc set covers early Petty, the history of the Heartbreakers, interviews with the likes of Stevie Nicks, Dave Grohl, and Rick Rubin, leading to their 30th anniversary concert in Gainesville. Culture yourself with this four-hour collection. Because nobody wants to hear about the four hours you spent playing Medal of Honor. Also worth watching so you can understand where your parents are coming from.

9. DIG! (2004)

This film compiles seven years of footage following two bands– The Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Dandy Warhols, as they attempt to take over the music industry. BJM front man Anton Newcombe is an egomaniacal, wacky-costume wearing, 80-instrument playing, band-sabotaging, audience-kicking train wreck – and a pleasure to watch. The Dandy Warhols’ front man Courtney Taylor wears makeup and must navigate the treacherous road of dealing with major record companies. Watch it to remind you just how crazy the music industry really is.

8. Instrument- 10 Years With The Band Fugazi (2001)

If you know punk and Hardcore, you know Fugazi. You also know that the most mainstream they have ever gotten is email forwards falsely reporting the death of lead singer Ian MacKaye. Watch this doc to see how dedicated these guys are, and for a scene where MacKaye calls a punch-happy kid an “Ice Cream Eating Motherfucker.” It’s something I call my friends at least once a week.

7. The Fearless Freaks (2005)

This disc covers the formation of Oklahoma psych-rockers The Flaming Lips. Maybe dropping all that acid wasn’t such a bad idea. Every band (except The Strokes) had shitty day jobs. In this clip, front man Wayne Coyne re-enacts being held up while working at Long John Silver’s. Heads up to Unsolved Mysteries: cast cute Vietnamese children for your re-enactments. Watch it because it will keep you from ever shooting heroin, or moving to Oklahoma City.

6. I Am Trying To Break Your Heart (2002)

Wilco records their fourth album, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Idiots at the record label deem it “not poppy” enough. Album is released for free online and later goes on to sell over 500,000 copies and have music critics creaming in their jeans. This is that story. Fred Armisen (SNL) is in it too. See it for the story.

5. The Last Waltz (1978)

Martin Scorsese helmed this enthralling look into the final performance of folk group, The Band. What they lack in coming up with cool band names (or is it the coolest band name?), they make up for with killer on-stage collaborations, including Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, and more. See it because it’s Martin Scorsese, and way better than the Oldguyapalloza that was his recent Shine A Light.

4. Some Kind of Monster (2004)

Originally made to chronicle the recording of Metallica’s St. Anger, this disc explores what happens when “metal group” meets “group therapy”. Drummer Lars Ulrich has a sit-down with former Metallica guitarist, Dave Mustaine and the “talk it out” (not metal). Guitarist Kirk Hammett is allowed to suggest a lyric. He comes up with, “my life-style is my death-style.” See it because it shows you the totally damaging effects that giant piles of money can have on your development into adulthood. And also, it’s just a great fucking movie— think Step Brother’s but for real.

3. The Devil and Daniel Johnston (2005)

Meet Daniel Johnston. He writes songs and records them on a crappy boom box. He does his own artwork and hands out these cassettes. He was institutionalized when he thought he was possessed by the devil and diagnosed with manic-depressive psychosis and his songs are incredible. His story is unbelievable, particularly the part about going flying with his pilot father, removing the keys from the ignition while airborne, and tossing them out the window. Guess what happened? I’ll give you a hit—it rhymes with ‘clane prash.’ See it to remind you of the overlap of genius and insanity.

2. Gimmie Shelter (1970)

I went to a Rolling Stones concert when I was in 9th grade. My friend’s dad took us. He knew all of the songs. I thought it was one of the lamest things ever. It wasn’t until college that I appreciated The Stones and realized that back in the day, they were just fucking awesome, and really set the stage for every band that followed. Watching Gimmie Shelter helped me reach this understanding. Watch it to see the result of one of the biggest fails in concert history: agreeing to let the Hells Angels run security. Lets just say things got ‘stabby.’

1. Don’t Look Back (1967)

Filmmaker D. A. Pennebaker is one of the most influential documentarians of all time. He established a style that is still used to this day. He avoided structured interviews and captured intimate moments using handheld camera work while maintaining a fly-on-the-wall presence. As commonplace as it is today, it was a big deal when he followed Bob Dylan around for his 1965 tour in England. Although it doesn’t have the flash of other docs on this list, it takes the number one spot for being THE original. Watch it to appreciate the genera just a little more.

Bob Dylan and Tom Petty ‘Lucky Old Sun’ rehearsal

Great cover of a classic track!

This originally was performed by Dean Martin and has been performed by countless great artists including Ray Charles and Johnny Cash, to name but a few.

The song was written by Smith/Gillespie.



Lucky Old Sun

In the green morning
I wanted to be a heart.
A heart.

And in the ripe evening
I wanted to be a nightingale.
A nightingale.

(Soul,
turn orange-colored.
Soul,
turn the color of love.)

In the vivid morning
I wanted to be myself.
A heart.

And at the evening’s end
I wanted to be my voice.
A nightingale.

Soul,
turn orange-colored.
Soul,
turn the color of love.
