Voodoo Child (Slight Return) ~ The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Sometimes you just gotta run to the turntable and play a whole evening’s worth of classics of the day…this is one of my numero uno tracks! I’m lucky enough to have seen Jimi and the band do it…..oh so well and though it’s sometimes overplayed…if you leave it for awhile, comeback to it…it blows the doors off in a good way for my old ears! Dust cleared…this is the Thursday Got Classic Nuggets for You selection from the Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner. Peace, love and wah-wah pedals y’all!!!!
can i be taken home now
can i be lost in the arms of your endless love
for all nights to come
can i be tucked safely in the bed of your longing
so no other will disturb my needing
please may i come back to you now.
Kate & Anna Mcgarrigle ~ Complainte Pour Ste. Catherine
And another tune from that year of ‘74….and one from the town and in the language I was…was in this affair of deepest longing!
Lover Lover Lover ~ Leonard Cohen
Okay, so there is no way that 1974 was the best year of my life…but this song..oh yes this song reminds me of a wild, raging love affair that was burning me to the quick that year. And this song….she said my smile caused her to ache! So on that note I offer my fellow countryman’s fine song up as the Wednesday is Wild like a burning passion as the selection of the Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner. Yes, I would whisper the lyrics to her after we burned our love into the darkest hours of the night…..
He said, “I locked you in this body,
I meant it as a kind of trial.
You can use it for a weapon,
or to make some woman smile.”
|Hi, all||I've been a bit tuckered this week and though I made it to FB for an idle moment or three...feel like I've been away from the editor-at-large's desk for eons here at the Flimwell Papers! I'ts partially the new regimen of much healthier pursuits -- I have to lose a few kilos before surgery -- new meds and back to work three days full on..whew....leaves me a bit tuckered. But I'll get there and my energy will see me here more in the future. Cheers y'all thanks for all the great and wonderful vibes...grins!|
I Keep six honest serving-men: (They taught me all I knew) Their names are What and Where and When And How and Why and Who. I send them over land and sea, I send them east and west; But after they have worked for me, I give them all a rest. I let them rest from nine till five. For I am busy then, As well as breakfast, lunch, and tea, For they are hungry men: But different folk have different views: I know a person small— She keeps ten million serving-men, Who get no rest at all! She sends 'em abroad on her own affairs From the second she opens her eyes— One million Hows, two million Wheres, And seven million Whys! ~ Rudyard Kipling (Just So Stories; The Elephant's Child)
