    I thought you were going to listen to George Michael today, S_C?
    This is one of my favorite covers ever...


    I did. At work. 

    Here's one of his other beauties: 


    I don't remember ever seeing that video before. Awesome!

    Hmm. That video was played alot on MTV here in Europe when released. It's beautiful.

    I think it was that one that made me ask my mom to buy his Greatest Hits collection (I think that Mary J Blige collab was a new single to sell that collection) together with PJ Harvey - Stories from the City... (Which I had read a review of in a magazine).

    Did you enjoy listening to the songs @njnancy ? I did. That's all I wanted. Even if you only enjoyed listening to the ones you picked. :) 




    If I only watched my own videos that would be like only reading my own posts. :confused: No make sense @OffSheGoes35 .

    I love seeing other people's choices, and some stuff that's new to me. 

    BTW @Renfield - nice pick on Tom Waits 'Marsha'. 
    Thank you ☺️ 

    Are you a Tom Waits fan? Every time I listen to Martha it breaks a small piece of my heart. The whole album is wonderful, Closing Time, his debut album.

    As an fyi... Tom Waits influenced my forum name. He played the character R.M. Renfield in the 1992 version of Bram Stokers Dracula
    So brilliantly demented :)

    The man wrote Jersey Girl - he is obviously a genius.

    Love Closing Time so much. Alice, Bawlers (of Bawlers, Brawlers, and Bastards), Small Change, Real Gone are regular rotations for me as well - the dude is a genius.

    I'm standing at the window in a house next to the ocean
    I saw her come through the garden there
    I don't think she knew that I saw and that I heard, but I saw
    and I heard how she sang, quietly to herself

    Love is for them, the ones who are lucky
    Love is for them, the ones who are lucky
    Love is for themLove is for themLove is for them

    I drove down towards the golden city
    Asked the girls who stood by the road
    They only stared down at the ground and said, mister
    You you don't know anything, you don't know anything

    Love is for them, the ones who are lucky
    Love is for them, the ones who are lucky
    Love is for them, Love is for them, Love is for them

    In the quarters behind the station
    I asked the poets who sat on a row
    They just stared rabbiteyed straight ahead
    In the end, in the end one of them said - what would we know about that?

    Love is for them, the ones who are lucky
    Love is for them, the ones who are lucky
    Love is for them, Love is for them, What would we know about that?

    Love is for them

    I just listened to two of your Thåström video posts S_C, and he is really good, man. Thank you for posting the lyrics in English. Now I'm going to listen to the third one.

    Hmm... Well, if you find a song you want an english translation to (I found it quite fun to translate) then just let me know.

    His cover of famous swedish 70s leftish political folkrock song "Keops Pyramid (The Pyramid of Cheops)" is great, industrial and heavy.

    THANKS A LOT MR. TRANSLATOR.
    I'm just going to listen to the song and insert these lyrics since you've forgotten me...


    I follow the Moskva
    Down to Gorky Park
    Listening to the wind of change
    An August summer night
    Soldiers passing by
    Listening to the wind of change
    The world is closing in
    Did you ever think
    That we could be so close, like brothers
    The future's in the air
    I can feel it everywhere
    Blowing with the wind of change
    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night
    Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
    In the wind of change
    Walking down the street
    Distant memories
    Are buried in the past forever
    I follow the Moskva
    Down to Gorky Park
    Listening to the wind of change
    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night
    Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams (share their dreams)
    With you and me
    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night (the glory night)
    Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
    In the wind of change (the wind of change)
    The wind of change
    Blows straight into the face of time
    Like a stormwind that will ring the freedom bell
    For peace of mind
    Let your balalaika sing
    What my guitar wants to say
    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night
    Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams (share their dreams)
    With you and me (with you and me)
    Take me to the magic of the moment
    On a glory night
    Where the children of tomorrow dream away (dream away)
    In the wind of change (in the wind of change)

    Yeah, that is when he performed for i the original artist at some... event... 

    Here is his studio cover which I like:



    Here are the lyrics:

    The Cheops Pyramid

    I am one of those who slave at king Cheops' pyramid,
    it is we who work down by the foot.
    We toil and we sweat, not to lose time,
    and it's sad about those who don't fill the quota.
     
    Once you've come here,
    you'll never be free again,
    if you end up here, you end up in the pit.
    But about the king they say he is the son of the sun.
     
    Behind fifteen double bolts, behind fifteen double locks
    the opulent hold court in the halls of power.
    Here nothing is threatening, here nothing is bothering.
    Here the thoughts and the rooms are equally cool.
     
    And if someone has to die
    or some are to get a beating
    there are others who can carry out the orders.
    Here the cries of angst and the wails are never heard.
     
    So it seems like in every time period and among all types of people,
    there are those who want to build pyramids,
    where they themselves sit at the top and hold the power in their hands,
    whilst those living below they obey
     
    But if those who's up there in the sky
    no longer want to understand
    but despises all of those who provides them with food,
    then the pyramids will in the end become their graves.

    I like the studio version too, glad you posted it! Thank you very much, Mr. Translator. I'm going to give it another listen.

    That is fabulous-pure unadulterated genius!

    Do you know what tour it was when he was asked why certain states were chosen and he said something like “someone owes us money in Kentucky” etc...

    Hey Spiritual, what about "Centralmassivet"? It has an interesting sound and I'm wondering what the song is actually about. No hurry, just whenever you get the chance, please.

    Hey Spiritual, what about "Centralmassivet"? It has an interesting sound and I'm wondering what the song is actually about. No hurry, just whenever you get the chance, please.
    Oh, the latest album. Recorded in the famous Berlin Hansa studio I believe. His lyrics turned more Jeff-Ament-ish on that. More random lines. More abstract. Introspective. My friend called it "lazy".

    The title song Centralmassivet lyrics:

    The Central Massive (I think this is an area in Spain...)

    We are ordinary, we are just anyone
    Oh, we are stars
    We are an empty paper, we are
    a thursday afternoon
    at the window table

    Somehow I found an empty corridor
    I went in and never, wanted to leave
    This feeling, that everything there was important
    Yes, the feeling that everything shines
    A silver lake

    If we ever have needed a miracle
    Then, let it come now

    Some nights I talk endlessly 
    Others, I can't even get out a word
    Roslagsgatan (read: street in the centre of Stockholm) up through Siberia
    The basement, where we hanged
    The North gate, The fireworks

    No reason to sleep now, right?
    Here it just keeps going, never ends
    Come on, come on, come one
    Come on and bleed
    But don't bleed too much

    If we ever have needed a miracle
    Then, let it come now

    I think something great is coming
    I think something great is coming
    Shake the mirror slowly turn it upside down
    Go on the straight line
    Shake the mirror once again

    If you ever have needed
    It is now, now now

    We are ordinary, we are just anyone
    Oh, we are stars
