No Time for Love Like Now

 

 

Michael Stipe released his new single - No Time For Love Like Now - as a studio video some days ago. This song was created in collaboration with producers Big Red Machine better known as Aaron Dessner from The National and Justin Vernon from Bon Iver. And I have here some 15 years old pictures from a R.E.M. concert in Stuttgart. I stood in the first row, after running!  


No Time For Love Like Now 

R.E.M at The Late Night Show with David Letterman 1983

There´s no love too small!

 

 

I miss you my dear friend, Phantom 105.2 FM Dublin! I listened to this radio station with a lot of pleasure for years, when ever I could. Every day! And as a huge „fan“ I made this collage many years ago. The Topic was: Things I love, so I honored them.

And here an another example of excellent music. I love this unplugged version from the song Last January so much. It´s from – my – band of the moment – The Twilight Sad — This is pure painful beauty. Be careful, this hurts!

Last January

Love will tear us apart again

 

 

I’ve been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand
Could these sensations make me feel the pleasures of a normal man?
Lose sensations, spare the insults leave them for another day
I’ve got the spirit, lose the feeling, take the shock away

It’s getting faster, moving faster now, it’s getting out of hand
On the tenth floor, down the backstairs into no man’s land
Lights are flashing, cars are crashing, getting frequent now
I’ve got the spirit, lose the feeling, let it out somehow

What means to you, what means to me and we will meet again
I’m watching you, I watch it all, I take no pity from your friends
Who is right, who can tell and who gives a damn right now?
Until the spirit, new sensation takes hold, then you know

‚Til the spirit, new sensation takes hold, then you know
‚Til the spirit, new sensation takes hold, then you know

I’ve got the spirit, but lose the feeling
I’ve got the spirit, but lose the feeling
Feeling, feeling
Feeling, feeling
Feeling, feeling
Feeling

I´ve been to Macclesfield in 2015!

Stranger Times

 

 

                                                   I still have this! Excellent choice, that´s me…

 


My song of the day comes from a Scottish band, that I like listening to right now! They are on my list of bands which I want to see live someday, when it is possible again...Yes it is ...Stranger Times, changing weather today, listen to melancholic music, reflect old times. That´s what it is, this way. Today!


I´m not here from The Twilight Sad

Midnight in Paris!

 

Ich habe hier, eine schon etwas ältere, kleine Zeichnung von mir rausgekramt. Das Bild hat keinen Titel, aber ich musste gerade an den Film Midnight in Paris von Woody Allen denken, und dieser Name passt doch ganz gut wie ich meine.
