Such a gifted singer-songwriter

African Dreams, a concert band piece by Brant Karrick. We were going to do this piece in Advanced Band but did not, as the Advance Band when I was there was so small. We had to cut it out of our set. Such a shame as I loved playing the toms part sm.

Au lieu de chercher Dieu dans les œuvres, nous
nous cherchons nous-mêmes. Notre paresse est
telle que nous préférons de basses impressions
aisées, qui nous diminuent, aux grandioses qui
exigent de l'effort.

Quote from: word_on_a_wing on September 06, 2019, 10:05:13Stereolab ...loving this song


My favorite song of theirs possibly,if only because it's the most Krautrock-sounding

Always makes me feel good...

RIP Maestro. Here one of his classics (translation in English below):


QuoteLies are all lies
things that people say,
say that this love is forbidden
that I'm forty and you're twenty.

That I am autumn in your life
and you are sweet spring,
but they don't know that I keep a summer
and when I look at you, it burns you.

Forty-twenty,
forty and twenty,
it's love that matters and not what people say.
forty and twenty,
forty and twenty,
Take my hand, walk with me,
looking straight ahead

It does not matter that they do not understand me
and that they talk behind my back
that there is a big difference,
that I'm forty and you're twenty.

That I have many experiences
and you have so much innocence,
They do not know that our secret
It's your youth and my experience.

...also worked on Donnie Darko - far more suitable than the director's first choice.

I like the song, but don't appreciate the singer's ginormous ego.

Another from Jose Jose, this one with the beautiful Lucia Mendez, circa 1985. What a charming pair singing together.

...geez David, these lyrics strike me as pretty yuck ...  A 40y/o man saying he wants to be with a 20y/o female. The whole song is about this, and that "others do not understand" ...well yeah, cause he's verging on the edge of being a paedophile 🤨

Thanks for speaking out. My brother did this - at 40-something, had a fling with his 21-year-old secretary while married to someone else.  Got her pregnant, huge downstream effect on yet another generation that's going to have to deal with the fallout of someone else's crap.  I was the only person in my family of origin who thought there was anything wrong with that - I feel it's unbelievably unethical for a middle-aged male employer, who's automatically in a power position, to make advances on a young female employee, whether or not that was happily received.  The employer has duty of care, the same way a teacher has duty of care.  It would have been better had that at least happened outside of an employer-employee relationship, and without one of them being married.  But it would still leave the questionable issue of men visiting their midlife crises on young women.  If a 40-year-old woman goes off with a 20-year-old man, people usually think quite differently about that.  And I personally wouldn't even dream of doing so, it would feel like paedophilia to me.

I'm not saying that it's never OK to love across a big age gap.  I am saying that it becomes a bit more palatable when the younger of them isn't barely out of school and actually has some life experience.  Also, the last two lines of that song just make me want to throw up.  Sorry, but they really do...
