I quit Peru and all the bands now go there. REM, Travis, The Jesus and Mary Chains, Duran Duran... all will play this month in Lima :?

And tonight is the turn of the Jesus and Mary Chains.

The Jesus and Mary Chain - Happy when it rains

I was noticing all of these bands making the rounds in South America and hitting Lime.  Sorry you missed them.  I recently saw Jesus and Mary Chain in Seattle.  An okay show.  It was short and plagued with sound problems, but still a lot of fun.  Oh, that reminds me, I need to check my audio from that gig.   :smth020

Right now, I am listening to the sound of the heater blowing stale air into my cubicle.  It seems some piece of crap decided that they needed my ratty ol' iphone/ipod headphones more than me and stole them off of my desk overnight  :smth011.  Now I have to go through the day listening to the old guy across from me fart and burp non-stop.

Nothing like using a pair of headphones that has been in someone else's ears  :roll:

Suede "Trash" (1996)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jBVePVwSpg

Oh maybe, maybe it's the clothes we wear,
The tasteless bracelets and the dye in our hair,
Maybe it's our kookiness,
Oh maybe, maybe it's our nowhere towns,
Our nothing places and our cellophane sounds,
Maybe it's our looseness,

But we're trash, you and me,
We're the litter on the breeze,
We're the lovers on the streets,
Just trash, me and you,
It's in everything we do,
It's in everything we do...

Oh maybe, maybe it's the things we say,
The words we've heard and the music we play,
Maybe it's our cheapness,
Or maybe, maybe it's the times we've had,
The lazy days and the crazes and the fads,
Maybe it's our sweetness,

But we're trash, you and me,
We're the litter on the breeze,
We're the lovers on the street,
Just trash, me and you,
It's in everything we do,
It's in everything we do...

I liked the music, it made me happy, and that's all what counts for me.


and there's nothing wrong with that.


CLT
the one and only steve perry & one of the best songs ever!:

Journey: Don't stop believin'  :smth020

no way anyone can ever top that voice, he (is/)was simply magical phenomenon, just flawless.
his voice can always lift me, however down i'd feel.
:D



(the only thing that perhaps astonishes me more than his voice is how did he manage to get into those jeans  :-P i mean hey it just can't be exactly healthy? anyway just ignore that because nothing ruins this song!)
Ay, in the very temple of Delight
Veil'd Melancholy has her sovran shrine

Journey is great!  Or at least they were, when Perry was in the band.   :rocker

Oh, and I think it was those pants were the reason he could sing so well, or at least that high  :P

CLT Separate Ways

GREAT song, cheesey video  :oops:  I love it when the guy plays air keyboard  :lol:

even if perry was dressed up in a potato sack and singing numbers/addresses out of a local phone book instead of lyrics, he'd still kick ass!  8)
sometimes i just wonder how he was able to breathe... anyway.

Wheel in the Sky Probably my favorite Journey song.

Wheel in the Sky Probably my favorite Journey song. 


i remember reading someone saying (on some youtube comments) how the strange thing about journey songs is that sometimes you don't relaly like some of them and/or they seem to belong to a genre that you're not "supposed to like", but then after a while you just notice that you absolutely love them nevertheless, no matter what. 'wheel in the sky' is a perfect example of such a song for me. when i heard it for a couple of first times i think part of my brain used to tell me i didn't like it - but there's just such musicality in the performance/in the songwriting itself that i simply love it.

this is great: Mother, father (live)

(by the way for the longest time i believed the melody around 5:10-> was played with synth/keyboards but it's not, it's a vocal falsetto!)


not great quality clip but some impressive vocal works there: Homemade love
