After Wardruna a few days ago here's another one just out today. Very good lyrics. I paraphrase it and translate a few sentences.
Song is titled "A Winter's Tale" (Wintermärchen). It's about a guy who asks the thrush bird why she does not fly south in the winter like many other birds of passage do and instead bears all the cold and harsh weather, etc. The bird then answers: 'Those who wander after the sun restlessly from country to country have never truly recognized the silent radiance dwelling in their own chest.'


I find that nice. o:)

Sinera, every one of these songs you post give me intense goosebumps. I really enjoy them. Feels like a call from long ago; an old memory maybe.

Keep 'em coming.

Thanks. I'll do my very best. o:) :)

Yeah. Love this kind of music. Touches the soul like nothing else and leads you into the past, the roots or to any fairy(tale)land and whatever higher vibration astral/dreamscape of your choosing.

The Cree are my fav musicians among the Native Americans. This is more or less the same 'song' across 43 minutes. Good for getting into trance or some unusual 'tribal background' music if you browse the internet.

This live version still needs more Cowbell !!!

Quote from this recording session: "I got a (corona) fever and the only prescription is that cowbell!"

;)

Your right you can't have enough cow bell. Sadly lacking in today's music.

Awesome performance, she's a real cowbell pro. And it's no easy playing this.

Moreover, although I'm no Bavarian I really like girls wearing traditional Dirndls! Shame I've never been to Munich during Octoberfest were you see masses of folk in lederhosen and dirndls. Awesome sight.

As I watch the world around me, it becomes very clear why we are all here at this time. Somehow the craziness makes it easier to hold my vibration and intentions high... Having some moments of clarity and peace in the eye of the hurricane. This just seemed like a fitting song today.

"Pneuma"

We are spirit
Bound to this flesh
We go around one foot nailed down
We're bound to reach out and beyond
This flesh become Pneuma

We are will and wonder
Bound to recall, remember
(We are born of)
One breath, one word
(We are all)
One spark, sun becoming

Child, wake up
Child, release
The light
Wake up now, child, wake up
Child, release
The light
Wake up now, child

(Spirit)
(Spirit)
(Spirit)
(Spirit)

Bound to this flesh
This guise, this mask, this dream
Wake up, remember
(We are born of)
One breath, one word
(We are all)
One spark, sun becoming

Pneuma
Reach out and beyond
Wake up, remember
(We are born of)
One breath, one word
(We are all)
One spark, eyes full of wonder


As a former drummer I love drum cams of the great drummers, so here we go (seems the embedding might not work somehow but you see the thumbnail still and can click on the title and watch it on YT then instead):

Hey Pucksterguy , question for you especially ... since you are Canadian.

SAGA !!!!

I was surprised or almost 'shocked' to find out recently that this great Canadian band (unlike Rush and a few others) is virtually unknown world-wide and only successful (according to wiki) in Germany and Puerto Rico. They were really big in my country, esp. in teh 80ies, but ongoing.

Gosh, did not know that they had only successs here. Their songs are real Classics for me, had several vinyl records and CDs. Like Rush they are a Progressive Rock band but also with some Charts and Mainstream ambitions.

As said, here are the songs that are really 'classics' for me since the 80ies, did/do you really not know them, PG (don't remember you posted Saga before although you did so many Classic rock things)?






The first two live vids show they are still up to it even today, singer's voice is also still great. Indeed they mostly tour in Germany nowadays:


:cool:

Saga was very well liked here (western Canada), but not worshiped like Rush. I think they weren't marketed well. They were presented as "Canada's answer to Pink Floyd", which wasn't the right target audience. Good band... Wished I had seen them, but never had the chance.

I agree with One65. I'd forgotten about them. They were a great band IMO but never really cracked the bigtime. It was said they were more popular in Europe then here for some reason. It was probably a combo of poor marketing and not a lot of airplay on radio. I know the band well. I think it was a case of too much electronics/techno and not enough rock for the period and our tastes. I gotta listen to them again. It's been a while.

After listening to the above tracks. I remeber better now. I used to love their sound. Sorta like a progressive rock sound not unlike Yes. Maybe a little to progressive for the average Canuck. Back then most here were into a big heavy guitar sound. Even Yes and ELP had a large audience but never a "superstar" stance. My kinda music but not so much for the main streams simpler tastes. I'm not surprised they were bigger over there.

I liked "On the Loose" best. I can see the comparisons to Floyd and Yes though with their own sound.

Yes, it can be intriguing how so many artists (and others) can best be appreciated by folks who are not in their hometown or even country while to others their hometown is their lifeblood of support.
Hmmm...

Still planning to see Saga this year. I have a buddy I go to concerts to 1 or 2 times per year. Hope til end of June the ghost of Corona will be gone at least somewhat so that concerts are a thing again and we will be able to go to their Gig near my hometown.

Genesis with good old Phil Collins are also coming next year to my country it seems, looking forward to that a bit although a reunion of the 'vintage' team with Gabriel and Hackett would have been greater. So now only we have Phil's son drumming who also did this on the solo tour since his Dad has lots of health (spine) problems and can only sing nowadays. It's sad because he has not the brilliance of his father on drums and also Phil seems to lack energy in his vocal and stage performances due to age/health. Wanted to post a live vid from his solo tour but it looks (and sounds) all really too bad for me. He is just sitting in a chair and sometimes doe not even seem to enjoy himself. Maybe he should not have come back at all? So I might be rethinking the Genesis concert. Anyway, in the meantime, here some good older Collins and Genesis live stuff instead, this one being one of the most significant drum fills in history:

After we have about four or so COVID-19 threads in the forum already we shall start a corresponding music thread too? :-))

Here's my first one, a quote from the lyrics (I think it used to be about AIDS, but gets a new meaning in 2020):

"Diseases come diseases go
Welcome to the final show
Let's shake hands with plastic gloves
And watch out for the last white doves"

Due to current events regarding loss of civil liberties already posted in the other thread: The old German folk song "Thoughts Are Free" in a nice choir version with English translation lyrics. The picture is the White Rose resistance group against the Nazi dictatorship featuring Sophie Scholl who is also known to have played the song on a flute (see article).




There are interesting comments, also in English on this page pertaining to the current situation and YouTube censorship. Some actually quite funny. A few of the English samples copied from there:

Video: "Thoughts are free" YouTube: wait that's illegal

>Disstrack against YouTube

YouTube has left chat.

Thoughts but not much else these days in the paternal nanny state

sophie scholl wos a punk !!! and more

How ironic , I wonder what Sophie" thoughts would be today .

This song is again so proper right now!

Ok, at last to lighten up the whole thing, here is a slightly differnt musical interpretation:



Question the same as before: Which version is better? o:) or >:)s ?

Officially it is an album that consists of mashups from the individual Beatles' solo careers after 1970. So even with out a parallel universe theory it could have been a kind of a 'future' Beatles album if they had stayed together and put their ideas together in songs indeed. E.g. you clearly hear McCartney's "Jet" in the song "Jen".

Speaking of future music and in memory of F. Schneider who recently passed away. Here's the classic band that sounded like future in 1978 like they still do today. I guess they will still say this in 30 years. They will 'always' be 'future music'.

They also invented a genre, kind of. And they influenced almost all genres with their music (even rock, not just electronic, techno or hiphop) and are said to be the most sampled band in music history.



The only kind of Transhumanism I really like actually.
;)

I also always loved the English Kraftwerk: OMD!

Genetic Engineering for me is an absolute musical master piece. Love the child song harmonies with the guitars and electronics. A shame this song flopped as a single back then. The masses were never ready for really great music (It's worse today imv).





Especially Dazzle Ships was an underrated great electronic album.
I could hear ABC Auto Industry over and over again without getting bored any time.
