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.

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,

The Loved Ones – "Sad Dark Eyes"

by sleepybutterfly


Darling, I want to kiss your burning mouth, your sad dark eyes and your ghostlike soul.

“Sad Dark Eyes” was a 1966 song by pioneering Australian rock band The Loved Ones.

A powerful blues-rock/pop song that has proven very influential.

Beautiful, strong lyrics here in this song! I can recall a couple of Nick Cave tracks where he rips off some of these great lyrics!

The Loved Ones were formed in Melbourne in 1965 by Gerry Humphreys, Ian Clyne and Kim Lynch in the wake of the British Invasion.

Although the band’s career lasted only two years, the group is now regarded as one of the most significant Australian bands of the sixties.

“Sad Dark Eyes” has been covered by Ed Kuepper, Die Haut with Mick Harvey, Die Haut with Nick Cave, and by Mick Harvey ‘solo’.

Die Haut first covered the song on their 1988 LP Headless Body In Topless Bar with Mick on vocals.

Die Haut recorded this live version on the LP Sweat – Live at Berlin Metropol, August 24, 1992, and Apeldoorn August 1992.


The Loved Ones were renowned as an exciting, if erratic, live act in a Stones/Animals mould, and quickly rose to prominence in the local club and dance scene.

The group’s visual impact was heightened by their striking mod stage attire and the band had a strong focal point thanks to the charismatic stage presence, saturnine good looks and growling, blues-influenced baritone voice of Humphreys, who is widely acknowledged as one of Australia’s finest male pop-rock vocalists.

The Loved Ones’ were also one of the first Australian pop bands to use electric piano as part of their regular stage set-up and their distinctive keyboard-based sound set them apart from most of their contemporaries.

This song, Sad Dark Eyes, followed the successful singles, The Loved One and Everlovin Man. By this time, Clyne had left and been replaced on piano by Treva Richards.

The band had some further single successes, including Blueberry Hill, but broke up in November 1967.

Sadly, Humphreys died in December 2005 of a heart attack.

Sad Dark Eyes

I look at you in your sad dark eyes
And your gypsy face with your Spanish grace
With your words like rhymes and your voice like chimes

Darling, I want to kiss your burning mouth
Your sad dark eyes and your ghostlike soul
Darling baby say that you’ll be mine

Put your ring on my finger
And comb your long red hair
Put on your sad eyes
And tell me that you care
That you’ll be mine, you’ll be mine
Until the end of time

– Humphreys/Lovett/Richards/Lynch/Anderson/LPA

The Go-Betweens – Bachelor Kisses


The Go-Betweens – Bachelor Kisses
1984, Sire
mp3/ RS

Don’t believe what you’ve heard. Faithful’s not a bad word.

One of Grant McLennan’s greatest moments. One of modern music’s greatest moments!

An ostensibly simple song where a sumptuous melody wraps around beautiful, minimalist, plaintiff, ambiguous poetry.

I’ve played this track thousands of times down the years and it’s profound beauty never ever diminishes!

Spring Hill FairThis song was recorded in 1984 for the great Spring Hill Fair LP and released as a single in August 1984.

Spring Hill Fair was one of the first GB’s albums I came across way back in the day. My pal Kev, who had wonderfully eclectic music taste, was gushing about the LP and in particular this fine track. He popped it onto a cassette – yap, real high tech times! – and I played it so much, the f*cking thing eventually fell apart!

Below is the original video of the song.


by BooBooGBs


Hey wait, please wait,
Don’t rush off,
You won’t be late.
Wait, yes, he’ll wait,
The engine’s running
At the gate.

Don’t believe what you’ve heard,
Faithful’s not a bad word.

Oh, won’t you save these bachelor
kisses now, they’re for your brow.
Oh, won’t you save these bachelor
kisses now, they’re for your brow.

Hand, hands like hooks,
You’ll get hurt
If you play with crooks.
Your hand, that’s all he took,
The world opened up
For your looks.

Don’t believe what you’ve heard,
Faithful’s not a bad word.

Oh, won’t you save these bachelor
kisses now, they’re for your brow.
Oh, won’t you save these bachelor
kisses now, they’re for your brow.

The arcade lights are hanging down.
The rain surrenders to the town.
The world of men don’t mean a thing
When all they give you is a diamond ring.

Don’t believe what you’ve heard,
Faithful’s not a bad word.

Oh, won’t you save these bachelor
kisses now, they’re for your brow.
Oh, won’t you save these bachelor
kisses now, they’re for your brow.

But don’t be slave to bachelor
kisses now, they’ll break their vow.
But don’t be slave to bachelor
kisses now, they’ll break their vow.

– Grant McLennan

The Go-Betweens – Cattle and Cane

The Go-Betweens – Cattle And Cane
1983, Rough Trade
mp3 / RS

In the sky, a rain of falling cinders. From time to time the waste. Memory wastes.
Another one of the late great Grant McLennan‘s finest moments, the sublime “Cattle and Cane” from the seminal and supremely influential Before Hollywood LP.

“Cattle and Cane” was released as a 7″ vinyl single in February 1983.

by bleed-the-sky

One of the first songs where Grant delved into clearly autobiographical subject matter; this time his growing up on a cattle station in the wilds of Queensland.

A beautiful melody here accompanies vivid pastoral poetry dredging up memories of better times. Youthful times. Times long gone in a faraway place.

This great song’s a celebration of those times and that faraway place. A sadness for those times. A longing for those times and for that place.

However, much like what Highway 61 represented for a young Bob Dylan growing up far from the big city in the remote rural heartland of Duluth, Minnesota, it’s “the railroad” here that represents for a young Grant an escape from the remote rural heartland of Queensland to the big city, the wider world of creativity, the future.

In the end, all he has of that treasured fledgling time is what exists in memory.

However, alas, as the lyric emphasises, “memory wastes … memory wastes.

Grant spoke about “Cattle and Cane” in an interview soon after its release in 83:

I wrote (the song) to please my mother. She hasn’t heard it yet because my mother and stepfather live (on a cattle station) and they can’t get 240 volts electricity there, so I have to sing it over the phone to her […]

I don’t like the word nostalgic; to me, it’s a sloppy yearning for the past, and I’m not trying to do that in that song. I

‘m just trying to put three vignettes of a person, who’s a lot like myself, growing up in Queensland, and just juxtaposing that against how I am now.

– Grant McLennan, 1983

In May 2001 “Cattle and Cane” was selected by Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) as one of the Top Australian songs of all time.


art by etherealspace



I recall a schoolboy coming home
Through fields of cane
To a house of tin and timber
And in the sky
A rain of falling cinders
From time to time
The waste, memory wastes.
I recall a boy in bigger pants
Like everyone
Just waiting for a chance
His father’s watch
He left it in the showers
From time to time
The waste, memory wastes
I recall a bigger brighter world
A world of books
And silent times in thought
And then the railroad
The railroad takes him home
Through fields of cattle
Through fields of cane
From time to time
The waste, memory wastes
The waste, memory wastes
Further, longer, higher, older


– Grant McLennan




Two versions here, both great.

Firstly, the original video of the song, recorded in 1982 for the great Before Hollywood LP.

Secondly, the Go-Betweens perform Cattle and Cane live on Aussie TV on the show Rock Arena, in February 1983.

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!

The Go-Betweens – Head Full of Steam

The Go-Betweens – Head Full Of Steam
1986, Beggars Banquet
mp3/ RS


She locked the door and the key, opened the windows for the neighbours to see her climb on my knee

Another sublime Robert Forster moment from the Go-Betweens’ seminal LP Liberty Belle And The Black Diamond Express.

Typically wonderful Forster poetry here splattered with hilarious abstract non-sequiters – the likes of “Her father works, her mother works in exports but that’s of no importance at all !

Surely the antithesis of your cliched love/ lust song!

Liberty Belle, the fourth album by the Go-Betweens, was released in 1986 in the UK on Beggars Banquet Records.

The album was recorded at Berry Street Studios in London and consisted of ten wonderful songs, the best of which being another Forster classic “Spring Rain”.

The album was produced by the Go-Betweens and Richard Preston, with the GB’s then being;

Robert Forster: Guitar & Vocals
Grant McLennan: Guitar & Vocals
Robert Vickers: Bass
Lindy Morrison: Drums

Tracey Thorn (Everything But the Girl) provides the backing vocals on this track.


Can I come to your place and can I wash your hair?

We were delighted to find the vid posted on Youtube as, amazingly, we’d never ever seen it!

Then later we were almost sad we found it! Almost!

Now we know why we’d never seen this before. Or nobody had!

Robert’s at his most, let’s say, outré here! No, we don’t mean he looks like he’s just back from the gay Mardi Gras! Well, not necessarily!

We won’t speak of the Grant wig and outfit either!

We’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that copious drugs were being taken during the concept phase and also before and during the shoot, and that the plan was to take the piss out of all those OTT New Romantic bands popular at the time.

Head Full of Steam – Robert Forster

I’d never met her type she ignored me and that’s alright
Never to be friends or my body lie on her floor
Her father works
Her mother works in exports
But that’s of no importance at all
I don’t mind
I don’t mind

To chase her
A fools dream
I’m 104 degrees
With a Head Full of Steam
All waiting’s up
I’m on that team
That says go forward
With a Head Full of Steam

She plays hard to get along with
But she might drop by
She never had a nickname
But then nor have I
I don’t mind
I don’t mind
To chase her
A fools dream
I’m 104 degrees
With a Head Full of Steam

All waiting’s up
I’m on that team
That says go forward
With a Head Full of Steam

Steam may rise
Steam
may deck
Can I come to your place
and can I wash your hair?


I’d never met her type
She locked the door and the key
Opened the windows for the neighbours to see
Her climb on my knee
To chase her
A fools dream
I’m 104 degrees
With a Head Full of Steam

All waitings up
I’m on that team
That says go forward
With a Head Full of Steam
Go Forward
Go forward now
Go forward
Go forward now

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.

Leonard Cohen – First we take Manhattan, Beacon Theatre New York

by TrevMurphy
I’d really like to live beside you, baby, I love your body and your spirit and your clothes

Lenny takes Manhattan with First we take Manhattan at the Beacon Theatre on February 19th, 2009 !

Next he’ll take Berlin!

A typically wonderful performance of this classic track by Lenny and his amazing band!

by Steiner62

from leonardcohen.com

As Leonard Cohen took to the historic Beacon Theatre stage Thursday in New York for his first stateside performance in fifteen years, AEG Live announced a run of North American engagements including dates throughout Canada and a sunset performance at the Coachella Festival in Indio, California. Tickets go on sale to the Canadian public beginning March 2, 2009. CBC Radio 2 is the Canadian broadcast presenter of the Leonard Cohen World Tour 2009.

The North American engagements will extend the phenomenal series of performances Mr. Cohen performed recently in the UK, Europe, Australia and Canada. The performances have been overwhelmingly received abroad, with over 80 five star reviews. As the London Daily Telegraph plainly stated, it is “an extraordinary night of music.”

As he has been throughout his most recent tour, Mr. Cohen will be joined by Sharon Robinson and the Webb Sisters – who have wowed crowds around the world with their rich and complementary background vocals. Also joining Mr. Cohen on stage are Roscoe Beck (bass, vocals), Neil Larsen (keyboards & Hammond B3 accordion), Bob Metzger (electric, acoustic & pedal steel guitar), Javier Mas (bandurria, laud, archilaud, 12 string acoustic guitar), Rafael Gayol (drums, percussion), Dino Soldo (sax, clarinet, dobro, keys).

Members of Best Buy Canada’s Reward Zone loyalty program will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to select Canadian concert dates three days before they go on sale to the general public. For full details go to: www.bestbuyrewardzone.ca.

Leonard Cohen – First we take Manhattan


They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
For trying to change the system from within
I’m coming now, I’m coming to reward them
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I’m guided by a signal in the heavens
I’m guided by this birthmark on my skin
I’m guided by the beauty of our weapons
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I’d really like to live beside you, baby
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
But you see that line there moving through the station?
I told you, I told you, told you, I was one of those

Ah you loved me as a loser, but now you’re worried that I just might win
You know the way to stop me, but you don’t have the discipline
How many nights I prayed for this, to let my work begin
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I don’t like your fashion business mister
And I don’t like these drugs that keep you thin
I don’t like what happened to my sister
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I’d really like to live beside you, baby …

And I thank you for those items that you sent me
The monkey and the plywood violin
I practiced every night, now I’m ready
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

I am guided

Ah remember me, I used to live for music
Remember me, I brought your groceries in
Well it’s Father’s Day and everybody’s wounded
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

Kate & Anna McGarrigle – Hard Times Come Again No More


There’s pale drooping maiden who foils her life away
With a worn out heart, whose better days are o’er.

Kate & Anna McGarrigle and friends – including Kate’s son Rufus Wainwright along with Emmylou Harris, Mary Black, Karen Matheson and Rod Paterson – perform a wonderful arrangement of Stephen Foster’s magnificent Hard Times Come Again No More. This comes from the Transatlantic sessions which was filmed in Scotland.

In the GOP induced world recession, this song is becoming ever more pertinent by the day!

“Hard Times Come Again No More” is a beautiful song written by Stephen C. Foster in 1854.

It attained recognition quickly and very soon became well-known and popular both in America and Europe.

The song was actually a favorite of both sides in the American Civil War.

The first audio recording was a wax cylinder by the Edison Company (Edison Gold Moulded 9120) in 1905.

“Hard Times Come Again No More” has been recorded countless times by an array of artists such as Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, De Danann, Kate McGarrigle and her family, James Taylor, Johnny Cash, Nanci Griffith, Ralph McTell, Willie Nelson, Jennifer Warnes and The Proclaimers, amongst others. It has also been parodied a number of times.

You can catch the Dylan version HERE!

The powerful, liturgical “Hard Times Come Again No More” is a song for the dispossessed, the trampled upon, the forgotten.

The song begins with the great line “Let us pause in life’s pleasures and count its many tears while we all sup sorrow with the poor” and strongly sympathises with those who find themselves in extremely difficult circumstances.

The heart wrenching refrain is a cry from the sorrowed soul that begs “Hard times, come again no more.”

The relevance of Foster’s great lyrics resonates from one era to the next as the greed of the wealthy elite inevitably leads not only to ongoing suffering amongst vast swathes of society – even in the better times – but over and over again too to periodic widespread economic collapse which causes universal pain, such as the “Great Depression” and this today, the “Great GOP Depression”.

We’re sure GW Bush never heard this song when he was in Office!



Stephen C. Foster – Hard Times Come Again No More


Let us pause in life’s pleasures and count its many tears
While we all sup sorrow with the poor.
There’s a song that will linger forever in our ears,
Oh, hard times, come again no more.
‘Tis the song, the sigh of the weary.
Hard times, hard times, come again no more.
Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door.
Oh, hard times, come again no more.

While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay.
There are frail forms fainting at the door.
Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say.
Oh, hard times, come again no more.
‘Tis the song, the sigh of the weary.
Hard times, hard times, come again no more.
Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door.
Oh, hard times, come again no more.

There’s pale drooping maiden who foils her life away
With a worn out heart, whose better days are o’er.
Though her voice it would be merry, ’tis sighing all the day,
Oh, hard times, come again no more.
‘Tis the song, the sigh of the weary.
Hard times, hard times, come again no more.
Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door.
Oh, hard times, come again no more.

‘Tis the song, the sigh of the weary.
Hard times, hard times, come again no more.
Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door.
Oh, hard times, come again no more.



Kate & Anna McGarrigle and friends – Hard Times Come Again No More

Bob Dylan’s Oscar Winnner "Things Have Changed"



All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
I’m in love with a woman who don’t even appeal to me

This is how an Oscar winning song should sound!

Superbly crafted in classic Dylan mould, “Things Have Changed” saw Bob create a powerful, timeless song with lyrics imbued with great poetry and no little wit.

A beautiful existentialist blues-inspired odyssey!

Bob later described it as “a song which doesn’t pussyfoot around nor turn a blind eye to human nature”! Well, can’t put it better than that!

The song appeared in the Curtis Hanson film Wonder Boys and was released as a single on May 1, 2000.
“Things Have Changed” rightly won the Academy Award and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song in 2000.

Catch Dylan’s gracious Oscar Acceptance Speech HERE.

Bob’s classic track was the first decent Oscar song winner since 1993’s “Streets of Philadelphia” by Bruce Springsteen.

To see clearly the insanity of this Oscar category, take a gander how, sandwiched between Bob and Bruce, came a slew of garbage like “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”, “Colors of the Wind”,”You Must Love Me”, “My Heart Will Go On”, “When You Believe”, “You’ll Be in My Heart” from the likes of muzak monsters the ilk of Phil Collins, Tim Rice, Elton John et al! Oh the horror …. the HORROR!!

Around this period, having returned from some time in a creative wasteland with a few decent LPs, Dylan was really finding his Muse again. His next two albums would be the excellent “Love and Theft” and the sublime “Modern Times”, the latter a true magnum opus, up there with Dylan’s finest (and therefore with modern music’s finest).

The director of Wonder Boys, Curtis Hanson, also created the video below for “Things Have Changed,” filming new footage of Dylan on the film’s various locations and editing it with footage used in Wonder Boys as if Dylan were actually in the film.

Things Have Changed

A worried man with a worried mind
No one in front of me and nothing behind
There’s a woman on my lap and she’s drinking champagne
Got white skin, got assassin’s eyes
I’m looking up into the sapphire tinted skies
I’m well dressed, waiting on the last train

Standing on the gallows with my head in a noose
Any minute now I’m expecting all hell to break loose

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

This place ain’t doing me any good
I’m in the wrong town, I should be in Hollywood
Just for a second there I thought I saw something move
Gonna take dancing lessons do the jitterbug rag
Ain’t no shortcuts, gonna dress in drag
Only a fool in here would think he’s got anything to prove

Lot of water under the bridge, Lot of other stuff too
Don’t get up gentlemen, I’m only passing through

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I’ve been walking forty miles of bad road
If the bible is right, the world will explode
I’ve been trying to get as far away from myself as I can
Some things are too hot to touch
The human mind can only stand so much
You can’t win with a losing hand

Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet
Putting her in a wheel barrow and wheeling her down the street

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I hurt easy, I just don’t show it
You can hurt someone and not even know it
The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity
Gonna get low down, gonna fly high
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
I’m in love with a woman who don’t even appeal to me

Mr. Jinx and Miss Lucy, they jumped in the lake
I’m not that eager to make a mistake

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

Dawn Landes – Straight Lines


art by =Iza87


Straight Lines

Remember when we were young?
How you asked everyone to marry you
All of those songs we sung
Changing all the words you used to make the heroine die
Why?

Remember when we were right?
God threw his darts at stars in the night
I had a kite
You had a trampoline and a BMX bike
You didn’t even like

I don’t want to say it’s breaking my heart
And I don’t know where to start
Old friends are falling apart
Time like the name of a man
Covered and we both can whine
I miss the straight, straight lines
The old times

Remember when we got caught?
Dirty hands and make-believe drugs
We never got
Give me all your money
Bank robbers and cowboy cops
Make-believe rocks

Remember when we held hands?
Red rover and marching band
You had a tan
Staying outside that long’s gonna make you man
Never going back, never going back again

I don’t want to say it’s breaking my heart
And I don’t know where to start
Old friends are falling apart
Time like the name of a man
Covered and we both can whine
I miss the straight, straight lines

The old times
The old times
Remember when we were young?
Remember when we were young?

Leonard Cohen – Morning Glory

Fear not comrades, nothing to do with that awful Oasis ditty of the same name!

Instead, a sublime moment from Leonard Cohen’s criminally neglected Dear Heather album – his eleventh studio album, released in 2004 and one of the great man’s greatest LPs.

Written and arranged by the maestro, this glorious song was produced by Leanne Ungar with beautiful background vocals arranged and sung by Anjani Thomas.

The lyrics are, as always, magnificent – a sort of amalgam of zen poetry, mysticism, philosophy and post-modernism with a carnal undercurrent. Not exactly adjectives often associated with Noel Gallagher lyrics!



Morning Glory

No words this time? No words. No, there are times when nothing can be done.

Not this time. Is it censorship? Is it censorship? No, it’s evaporation.

No, it’s evaporation. Is this leading somewhere? Yes. We’re going down the lane.

Is this going somewhere? Into the garden. Into the backyard.

We’re walking down the driveway. Are we moving towards…. We’re in the backyard.

…some transcendental moment? It’s almost light. That’s right. That’s it.

Are we moving towards some transcendental moment? That’s right. That’s it.

Do you think you’ll be able to pull it off? Yes. Do you think you can pull it off?

Yes, it might happen. I’m all ears. I’m all ears. Oh the morning glory!

And at the evening’s end

I wanted to be my voice.

A nightingale.


Soul,
turn orange-colored.

Soul,
turn the color of love.


– L Cohen

by 3amfromkyoto

It’s Valentine’s Day, and I’m catatonic
And only over the sea will that be taken

And oh, I could be (the possibilities)
And oh, I could be (the possibilities)
And oh, I could be (the possibilities)

God has made you one face,
You must find another
God has made you one face,
You must find another,
You must be born again

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.

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


Elmore James did not die in a sportscar

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’!

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.

Bob Dylan covers Warren Zevon’s "Accidentally Like a Martyr"


The hurt gets worse and the heart gets harder


Accidentally Like A Martyr is a well crafted, beautiful and powerful, poetic track from the late great Warren Zevon.

One of Warren’s greatest tracks.

Bob Dylan certainly thinks so!

Not only did his Bobness cover the song during the 2002 version of the Never Ending Tour, he also used a line from the song for the title of Time Out of Mind, his excellent Grammy winning album from 1997.

See below for a vid of Dylan covering this great classic Zevon song from a 2002 gig in Boston. Although the camera work isn’t great, the sound is good.

It’s fascinating to hear Bob’s take on the song. The band here are great. Especially Larry Campbell’s wonderful guitar work on the break and the beautiful “duelling” guitars effect with Bob’s Gumby imitation at the same time.

“Accidentally Like a Martyr” appeared on Excitable Boy, the third album by Warren Zevon, released in 1978. The album was produced by Jackson Browne with Waddy Wachtel.

This LP – the best-selling album of Zevon’s career- also includes Warren’s best known track, the top 40 hit “Werewolves of London.”

In a quite eclectic album, “Accidentally Like a Martyr” was one of the more straightforward tracks.

The best track on the album, “Accidentally Like a Martyr” is a beautiful powerful ballad about life, love, loss, pain and darkness.

Warren Zevon – Accidentally Like a Martyr

The phone don’t ring
And the sun refused to shine
Never thought I’d have to pay so dearly
For what was already mine
For such a long, long time

We made mad love
Shadow love
Random love
And abandoned love
Accidentally like a martyr
The hurt gets worse and the heart gets harder

The days slide by
Should have done, should have done, we all sigh
Never thought I’d ever be so lonely
After such a long, long time
Time out of mind

We made mad love
Shadow love
Random love
And abandoned love
Accidentally like a martyr
The hurt gets worse and the heart gets harder



Bob Dylan – “Accidentally Like a Martyr”
Boston, 2002

Theme Time Radio Hour, your home for Pussy
Dreams, Feline Themes and Kitty Schemes

No matter how much cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens.

-Abraham Lincoln

A cat’s rage is beautiful, burning with pure cat flame, all its hair standing up and crackling blue sparks, eyes blazing and sputtering.

-William S. Burroughs




I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through.

-Jules Verne

Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a purpose.

– Garrison Keillor



TIGER, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder and what art
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand and what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? What dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And water’d heaven with their tears,
Did He smile His work to see?
Did He who made the lamb make thee?

Tiger, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

– William Blake (1757–1827)



This one’s for all the cat people out there.




So keep dial turned right here … I know it’s not actually a dial – I just like saying that.



Actually we won’t be doing much talking about the caboodle







I hear the click-clack of your feet on the stairs
I know you’re no scare-eyed honey.
There’ll be a feast if you just come upstairs
But its no hanging matter
Its no capital crime

I can see that you’re fifteen years old
No I don’t want your ID
You look so restless and you’re so far from home
But it’s no hanging matter
It’s no capital crime

Oh yeah, you’re a strange stray cat
Oh yeah, dontcha scratch like that
Oh yeah, you’re a strange stray cat
Bet your mama don’t know you scream like that
I bet your mother
don’t know you can spit like that.

You look so weird and you’re so far from home
But you don’t really miss your mother
don’t look so scared I’m no mad-brained bear
But its no hanging matter
Its no capital crime
Oh, yeah
Woo!

I bet your mama don’t know that you scratch like that
I bet she don’t know you can bite like that.

You say you got a friend, that shes wilder than you
Why don’t you bring her upstairs
If shes so wild then she can join in too
Its no hanging matter
Its no capital crime

Oh yeah, you’re a strange stray cat
Oh yeah, dontcha scratch like that
Oh yeah, you’re a strange stray cat
I bet you mama don’t know you can bite like that
I’ll bet she never saw you scratch my back

Jagger/Richards



I’ve always been partial to Mimi Van Doren



No two tigers have identical stripes … unless they’re wearing the same pyjamas.



Here he is with great evidence of his religious background, The Mighty Sparrow and Sell the Pussy.




That’s certainly a pet lover’s dystopia.


I was getting some photos developed when I ran into John C. Reilly.


I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail, it’s plain to see;
I won’t be much when you get thru’ with me.
Well, I’m a losing weight and a turnin’ mighty pale.
Looks like I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail.

Well, I thought the day I met you, you were meek as a lamb;
Just the kind to fit my dreams and plans.
But now, the pace we’re livin’ takes the wind from my sails
And it looks like I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail.

I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail, it’s plain to see;
I won’t be much when you get thru’ with me.
Well,I’m a losing weight and a turnin’ mighty pale.
Looks like I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail.

Well, ev’ry night you drag me where the bright lights are found;
There ain’t no way to slow you down
I’m as ’bout as helpless as a leaf in a gale;
And it looks like I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail.

I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail, it’s plain to see;
I won’t be much when you get thru’ with me.
Well,I’m a losing weight and a turnin’ mighty pale.
Looks like I’ve Got A Tiger By The Tail.


-Buck Owens


It’s a song that raises more questions than it answers. The first time I heard it was on a warm Summer’s day. I thought I was hallucinating.



When we come back, I’ll solve the mystery of the Black Cat Bone


You better leave (meow) my kitten alone (meow, meow)
You better leave (meow, meow) my kitten alone (meow, meow)
I done told you big bad bulldog
You better leave her alone (meow, meow)

Don’t you know my kitten is a dream?
Don’t you know my kitten is a dream?
So, get your hands off of her, ’cause I’m her lovin’ man

*Mr. Dog I’m gonna hit you on the top a yo’ head
The Batgirl’s gonna miss you
And you’ll wish that you were dead

If you don’t lee-ee-eave my kitten alone
Yes, I love my little kitten
Like you hounddogs love your bone

Mr. Dog, I’m gonna hit you on the top a yo’ head
The *Batgirl’s gonna miss you
And you’ll wish that you were dead

If you don’t lee-eee-eave my kitten alone
Yes, I love my little kitten
Like all you hounddogs love your bone

Oh yeah
You better leave
You better leave

You better lee-eee-eee-eave.

Little Willie John




Now I don’t condone this behaviour … Don’t shoot the messenger


Sometimes we just play artists that confuse us totally …. by the end of this song, she starts speaking in a language that I can’t understand.

Dylan’s magnificent and seminal Theme Time Radio Hour series continues into Season 3 with this great show on the theme of Cats!

As usual, lots of great info and facts, corny jokes and witticisms.

More corny jokes than usual this week! ! And with the pussy angle (wasn’t that a porno movie title?) bucketloads of double entendres!

Lotsa literature too, this week a revisit to William Blake, cool cat poet!

Mad John C Reilly is back again – does that guy ever speak any sense? – with some totally insane piece! We’ve listened to it a few times and it still makes zero sense!

Nice to see Dylan aficionado Cat Power put in another appearance.

Some amazing music too of course. A really eclectic array this week!

We really liked the original version of Leave My Kitten Alone – a song we’d only known via the Beatles version – by Little Willie John. And of course the Stones classic Stray Cat Blues, with its very dodgy lyrics that wouldn’t see light of day if released today!

Seems to be a lot of cartoon theme tunes this week too!

The rather obscure theme of Cats lends itself to some really weird and bizarre stuff! The Stones and cartoon themes aside, surely the most obscure selection of Season 3!

Where the hell else are you likely to hear crazy but wonderful stuff like “The Cat’s Got The Measles, The Dog’s Got The Whooping Cough” by Walter “Kid” Smith and Norman Woodlief??! Or the totally bonkers “A Fish House Function (For A Cross Eyed Cat Named Sam)”?

All in all, a wonderful show!!

Truly the cat’s pyjamas!!

Next week’s show seems to be about the GOP! Yap, the theme will be Madness!



Enough yapping, let’s get back to some more music.
