Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mbBbFH9fAg

In my eyes
Indisposed
In disguise
As no one knows
Hides the face
Lies the snake
And the sun
In my disgrace

Boiling heat
Summer stench
'Neath the black
The sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And I'll hear you
Scream again

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

Stuttering
Cold and damp
Steal the warm wind
Tired friend
Times are gone
For honest men
And sometimes
Far too long
For snakes

In my shoes
A walking sleep
And my youth
I pray to keep
Heaven send
Hell away
No one sings
Like you anymore

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)

Hang my head
Drown my fear
'Til you all just disappear

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

One more shot, one more song and then my security detail will be escorting me back to the palace.

Dishwalla - Find Your Way Back Home

There used to be a time
When you're the only one
That you could see
You built a wall to keep you free

You saw it all so perfectly
You divided everything
You had into a thousand parts or names
It made it easier to place the blame

But it never really was the same
But you forgot the reason why
You had to be alone to breathe
Something from your history

Or have you lost your memory?
But now it seems your baggage
Is the only thing than you can bring
You had a lie for everything

And now your world is crumbling
(Ah ooh)
So now you find you're on your own
You find you're on your own

Trying to find your way back home
Trying to find your way back
You used to talk to God

But you gave up 'cause you couldn't see
Couldn't get from A to be
But were you ever really listening
Enough's enough you know

But then you never really had enough
Something more to fill you up
Maybe just a smaller cup
(Ah ooh)

So now you find you're on your own
You find you're on your own
(Ah ooh)
Trying to find your way back home

Trying to find your way back home
You used to think that
You would never be alone
But you're losing control

You find it hard to see at all
To find your way back
There used to be a time
When you divided

Everything you had
You had a lie for everything
Or were you ever really listening?
You used to talk to God

But you gave up
But then you really never had enough
Or have you lost your memory?
Memory

But now you find you're on your own
To find your way back home

I remember Spoonman at the bottom of the stairs of the Pikes Place Market in Seattle in the '90s....

"Spoonman" - Soundgarden
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0_zzCLLRvE

Feel the rhythm with your hands
Steal the rhythm while you can, spoonman
Speak the rhythm on your own
Speak the rhythm all alone, spoonman

Spoonman, come together with your hands
Save me, I'm together with your plan
Save me

All my friends are Indians
All my friends are brown and red, spoonman
All my friends are skeletons
They beat the rhythm with their bones, spoonman

Feel the rhythm with your hands
Steal the rhythm while you can, spoonman

Thank you, good night people

The Charlie Daniels Band - The Devil Went Down to Georgia

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sh7BZf7D5Bw

The Devil went down to Georgia. He was lookin' for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind 'cause he was way behind and he was willing to make a deal
When he came across this young man sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot.
And the Devil jumped upon a hickory stump and said, "Boy, let me tell you what."

"I guess you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player, too.
And if you'd care to take a dare I'll make a bet with you.
Now you play a pretty good fiddle, boy, but give the Devil his due.
I'll bet a fiddle of gold against your soul 'cause I think I'm better than you."

The boy said, "My name's Johnny, and it might be a sin,
But I'll take your bet; you're gonna regret 'cause I'm the best there's ever been."

Johnny, rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard.
'Cause Hell's broke loose in Georgia and the Devil deals the cards.
And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold,
But if you lose the Devil gets your soul.

The Devil opened up his case and he said, "I'll start this show."
And fire flew from his fingertips as he rosined up his bow.
And he pulled the bow across the strings and it made an evil hiss.
And a band of demons joined in and it sounded something like this.

When the Devil finished, Johnny said, "Well, you're pretty good, old son,
But sit down in that chair right there, let me show you how it's done."

"Fire on the Mountain". Run, boys, run!
The Devil's in the house of the rising sun;
Chicken in the bread pan picking out dough.
Granny, does your dog bite? No, child, no.

The Devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat.
And he laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny's feet.
Johnny said, "Devil, just come on back, if you ever wanna try again,
I done told you once, you son of a bitch, I'm the best that's ever been."
And he played:

"Fire on the Mountain". Run, boys, run!
Devil's in the house of the rising sun;
The chicken in the bread pan picking out dough.
Granny, will your dog bite? No, child, no.

So many great choices to conclude my #synthful playlist, but I'm going to close with:
The Human League - Don't You Want Me?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPudE8nDog0

[Verse 1: Philip Oakey]
You were workin' as a waitress in a cocktail bar
When I met you
I picked you out, I shook you up and turned you around
Turned you into someone new
Now five years later on you've got the world at your feet
Success has been so easy for you
But don't forget, it's me who put you where you are now
And I can put you back down too

[Pre-Chorus: Philip]
Don't, don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it when I hear that you won't see me
Don't, don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you when you say that you don't need me
It's much too late to find
You think you've changed your mind
You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry

[Chorus: Philip]
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, ohh?
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, ohh?

[Verse 2: Susan Ann Sulley]
I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
That much is true
But even then I knew I'd find a much better place
Either with or without you
The five years we have had have been such good times
I still love you
But now I think it's time I live my life on my own
I guess it's just what I must do

[Pre-Chorus: Philip]
Don't, don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it when I hear that you won't see me
Don't, don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you when you say that you don't need me
It's much too late to find
You think you've changed your mind
You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry

[Chorus: Philip]
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, ohh?
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, ohh?

[Instrumental Break]

[Chorus Repeated Until Fade: Philip]
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, ohh?
Don't you want me, baby?
Don't you want me, ohh?

Johnny Cash - Hurt

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AHCfZTRGiI

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

"Bad Decisions" - The Strokes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fbZTnZDvPA

Dropped down the lights, I’m sitting with you
Moscow, 1972
Always singin' in my sleep
I will leave it in my dreams

Oh, makin' bad decisions
Oh, makin' bad decisions
Making bad decisions for you
Yeah, makin' bad decisions
Uh-oh, makin' bad decisions
Makin' bad decisions for you

Pick up your gun
Put up those gloves
Save us from harm
Safe or alone

Oh baby, I hang on everything you say
I wanna write down every word
But do me a favor when you come through
When I look around, don't wanna see you
I don't take advice from fools
Never listenin' to you

Oh, makin' bad decisions
Oh, makin' bad decisions
Making bad decisions with you
Oh, makin' bad decisions
Uh-oh, makin' bad decisions
I'm makin' bad decisions with you

Pick up your gun

You, you didn't listen to me
But I, I didn't listen to you
I waited so long listening for
Something to join

I'm makin' bad decisions
Really, really bad decisions
I'm makin' bad decisions
On you, on you
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I'm not gonna give a lot of credit
I don't know how to use, how
'Cause I can't, I can't
I can't, can't make anymore

Soggy Bottom Boys - I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHamgwlQ1yo

(In constant sorrow, all through his days.)

I am the man of constant sorrow
I've seen trouble all my days
I bid farewell to ol' Kentucky
The place where I was born and raised.

(The place where he was born and raised)

For six long years I've been in trouble,
no pleasure here on earth I've found
For in this world, I'm bound to ramble,
I have no friends to help me now.

(He has no friends to help him now)

It's fair thee well, my old true lover,
I ne’er expect to see you again.
For I'm bound to ride that Northern Railroad,
perhaps I'll die upon this train

(Perhaps he'll die upon this train)

You can bury me in some deep valley,
For many years where I may lay.
And you may learn to love another
while I am sleeping in my grave.

(While he is sleeping in his grave)

Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
My face you’ll never see no more
But there is one promise that is given,
I'll meet you on Gods golden shore

(He'll meet you on God's golden shore)

New today, from his first solo album in 15 years:

The Righteous Brothers - Unchained Melody
https://youtu.be/qiiyq2xrSI0

Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me
Lonely rivers flow
To the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh
"Wait for me, wait for me"
I'll be coming home, wait for me
Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered, for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

The Dead South - In Hell I'll Be In Good Company
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9FzVhw8_bY

Dead Love couldn't go no further
Proud of and disgusted by her
Push shove, a little bruised and battered
Oh Lord I ain't coming home with you

My life's a bit more colder
Dead wife is what I told her
Brass knife sinks into my shoulder
Oh babe don't know what I'm gonna do

I see my red head, messed bed, tear shed
Queen bee, my squeeze
The stage it smells, tells, hell's bells
Miss-spells, knocks me on my knees
It didn't hurt, flirt, blood squirt
Stuffed shirt, hang me on a tree
After I count down, three rounds
In hell I'll be in good company

In Los Ageless, the winter never comes
In Los Ageless, the mothers milk their young
But I can keep running
No, I can keep running
The Los Ageless hang out by the bar
Burn the pages of unwritten memoirs
But I can keep running
No, I can keep running
How can anybody have you?
How can anybody have you and lose you?
How can anybody have you and lose you
And not lose their minds, too?
How can anybody have you?
How can anybody have you and lose you?
How can anybody have you and lose you
And not lose their minds, too?
The last days of the sunset superstars
Girls in cages playing their guitars
But how can I leave?
I just follow the hood of my car
In Los Ageless, the waves they never break
They build and build until you don't have no escape
But how can I leave?
I just follow my hood to the sea, go to sleep
How can anybody have you?
How can anybody have you and lose you?
How can anybody have you and lose you
And not lose their minds, too?
How can anybody have you?
How can anybody have you and lose you?
How can anybody have you and lose you
And not lose their minds, too?
Oh my Lord, oh, we really did it now
I'm a monster and you're my sacred cow
But I can keep running
No, I can keep on running
How can anybody have you?
How can anybody have you and lose you?
How can anybody have you and lose you
And not lose their minds, too?
How can anybody have you?
How can anybody have you and lose you?
How can anybody have you and lose you
And not lose their minds?
I guess that's just me, honey, I guess that's how I'm built
I try to tell you I love you and it comes out all sick
I guess that's just me, honey, I guess that's how I'm built
I try to write you a love song but it comes out a lament
I guess that's just me, honey, I guess that's how I'm built
I try to tell you I love you but it comes out all sick
I guess that's just me, honey, I guess that's how I'm built
I try to write you a love song but it comes out a lament
I try to write you a love song but it comes out a lament
I try to write you a love song but it comes out a lament

I Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Aerosmith

https://youtu.be/JkK8g6FMEXE

~ ~ ~

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing.
Watch you smile while you are sleeping.
While you're far away and dreaming.

I could spend my life in this sweet surrender.
I could stay lost in this moment forever.
Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure.

Don't want to close my eyes.
I don't want to fall asleep.
'Cause I'd miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

'Cause even when I dream of you.
The sweetest dream will never do.
I'd still miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

Lying close to you, feeling your heart beating.
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming.
Wondering if it's me you're seeing.

Then I kiss your eyes.
And thank God we're together.
And I just want to stay with you in this moment forever.
Forever and ever.

I don't want to close my eyes.
I don't want to fall asleep.
'Cause I'd miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

'Cause even when I dream of you.
The sweetest dream will never do.
I'd still miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

I don't want to miss one smile.
And I don't want to miss one kiss.
And I just want to be with you.
Right here with you, just like this.

And I just want to hold you close.
Or feel your heart so close to mine.
And just stay here in this moment.
For all the rest of time.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Don't want to close my eyes.
Don't want to fall asleep.
'Cause I'd miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

'Cause even when I dream of you.
The sweetest dream will never do.
I'd still miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

I don't want to close my eyes!
I don't want to fall asleep!
'Cause I'd miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing!

'Cause even when I dream of you!
The sweetest dream will never do.
I'd still miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

Don't want to close my eyes!
I don't want to fall asleep, yeah.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

"Good Night" - Linda Ronstadt (original by The Beatles)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdVnrHHW6uI

Now it's time to say good night
Good night, sleep tight
Now the sun turns out his light
Good night, sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me (Dream sweet)
Dream sweet dreams for you

Close your eyes and I'll close mine
Good night, sleep tight
Now the moon begins to shine
Good night, sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me (Dream sweet)
Dream sweet dreams for you

Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmmmmmm

Close your eyes and I'll close mine
Good night, sleep tight
Now the sun turns out his light
Good night, sleep tight
Dream sweet dreams for me (Dream sweet)
Dream sweet dreams for you

Good night, good night, everybody
Everybody everywhere
Good night

In my eyes
Indisposed
In disguise
As no one knows
Hides the face
Lies the snake
And the sun
In my disgrace

Boiling heat
Summer stench
'Neath the black
The sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And I'll hear you
Scream again

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

Stuttering
Cold and damp
Steal the warm wind
Tired friend
Times are gone
For honest men
And sometimes
Far too long
For snakes

In my shoes
A walking sleep
And my youth
I pray to keep
Heaven send
Hell away
No one sings
Like you anymore

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)

Hang my head
Drown my fear
'Til you all just disappear

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
(Black hole sun,
Black hole sun)
Won't you come?
Won't you come?
Won't you come?

Always liked that song, really unfortunate what happened with the singer

TODAY IN THE WEST

Your cat should feel purr-fect today because it is International Cat Day! If you already dote on your cat, multiply it times 1,000 today, or make a cardboard castle, or do something else that will make your cat feel extra extra extra special (because they already surely feel extra extra special).

Today is also Happiness Happens Day. We encourage happiness and prohibit the squashing of happiness. If someone is happy, encourage them. If you want to be happy, even for a fleeting moment, let someone encourage you.

Here's how I'd encourage the West to observe Happiness Happens Day:

    [1]Post your favorite (PG13 highest rated) comedy skit or other funny YouTube video with the hashtag #happinesshappens

    [2]Endorse Bran Astor, our guardians, and everyone else (for everyone else - max 250 endorsements) because they'll endorse you back and happiness will happen everywhere in the West.

    [3]Members of the Hall of Nations will make Bran and Giovanniland happy by participating in TWP's Quarterly Elections. Ask questions to our candidates for Deputy Minister of Cultural Affairs and World Assembly Recruitment at: https://www.westpacific.org/forums/index.php?/forum/87-campaigning/

Make happiness happen today!

Supposedly written about the British DJ Jimmy Young whom Pink Floyd detested.

I read in Wikipedia that Jimmy's radio show began in 1973 , but Meddle was released in 1971. There's obviously some history there.

Hey! I’d like to introduce my country.

Veritalis aims to become a beacon of freedom in the land, as an exemplar demonstration of democracy. I honestly don’t have anything else to say.

He was one of the original Radio 1 DJs in 1967, before transferring across to Radio 2 in 1973.
