Can’t seem to shake this Jay-Z bug I have.  Everything I’ve tried has not shaken it. Has anyone else been having problems with trying to get away from the Blueprint 3? It’s cocky, it’s real, it’s Jay-Z at his best.  It’s late and random thoughts keep occuring. Check it out and hear it for yourselves. You will not be disapointed.

 

 

What exactly is a “collie man”? Off of the “Live and Direct” cd, this song delivers to all listeners. Relaxing, simple, and re-list-en-able. A Californian band with a great mix of acoustic, reggae, blues, rock, hip-hop, and funk, check them out.

lyrics

And some man live his life
For profits alone
That very same man
He lives his life all alone
And the road to life
Yes it goes up and down
Doesn’t really matter
As long as the music goes on
Hey mister collie man
Why don’t you come round no more
Hey mister collie collie man
Don’t you hear me troubled call
Hey mister collie man
Look i didn’t come to disturb
You best not be come ’round here
Unless you’ve got me sensi herb
I never needed any
Reason for me to say
Through all them troubled times
Yes me love you any way
And the roughest path
You know the rocky rocky road
You know that
Life and love is a
Heavy heavy load
Hey mister collie man
Why don’t you come ’round no more
Hey mister collie collie man
Dont you hear me troubled call
Hey mister collie man
Look i didn’t come to disturb
You best not be come round here
Unless you’ve got me sensi herb
You best not be come round here
Unless you’ve got me sensi herb

One of the most relaxing songs ever. Could listen to it on repeat for hours. Short and sweet though. Last song off the “Road Apples” record. I’m kinda a Hip fan…enjoy

Arguably the top band ever to come from the North Country. Gord Downie’s haunting lyrics along with his echoing voice have made the Hip a staple in any true Canadians list of bands. To see the Hip play live anywhere 100 miles away from the Canadian border is a spectacle for any fan. When I saw them in Boston at the House of Blues this past spring, I was standing litterally 10 feet away from the legend known as Gord Downie as he whaled out a setlist of 25+ songs. The new album, We Are The Same, released in 2009, has many hidden gems that will just add to the continuing success of these indie-Canadian rockers. This happens to be my favorite of many off the album…and go figures, they opened with it that night and I was stuck in a cab trying to give the goddamn cabbie directions to the venue. Luckily, I also have the bootleg from the show. Enjoy the Studio version for now. I’m shutting it down for the night. I’m Beat. Keep on rocking and smoke em if you got em.

Who are youuuuuuuu
Who are yooooooooouuuuuu
Who are youuuuuuuuuuuuu

GENIUS!

 

When I first heard that Chris Cornell (former lead singer of Soundgarden/Audioslave/Temple of the Dog) was in the makes of creating a hip-hop album with TImbaland last year, I, like the common public mocked the idea. It was only until 2 weeks ago that I purchased the album because I needed some new tunes to add to my repertoire. I’ve always been a huge fan of Cornell’s so my curiousity peaked on that Sunday afternoon and I got ahold of this gem. Half a dozen songs stuck with me from the record “Scream” that I’m sure at some point in time I will end up discussing them on here. However, the track “Long Gone” makes my first “hip hop” blog spiel here. The song can strike an emotion to anyone who is at a loss of something in their life, assuming that they actually pay attention to lyrics. For all you hardcore rock n’ roll juggernauts, including myself, we can let our guard down and accept it for what it is: a beautiful song. Yah its hip-hoppy and kind of sappy, but again, we are all music lovers and I, for one, appreciate the hell out of the album and this song. Any artist that can step away from their comfort zone and do something creative and non-traditional immediately gains my respect. Rock on Chris and lets get a Soundgarden reunion already!
