  1. Here is my last Dylan lyric. In honor of Portland. From "Desolation Row" funny how Dylan is so timeless. Form "Masters of War" to many of Dylan's protest songs you can play them and find the lyric to be just as timely and vital today as when it was written. [Chorus] And the riot squad, they’re restless They need somewhere to go As Lady and I look out tonight From Desolation Row If you think 2020 was a bad movie, just wait until November.
  2. After yesterday's more obscure "Gates of Eden" lyric we move on to "Visions of Johanna" a much more well known Dylan epic. It is said that this song is certainly Nobel Prize worthy: In the empty lot where the ladies play blindman’s bluff with the key chain And the all-night girls they whisper of escapades out on the “D” train We can hear the night watchman click his flashlight Ask himself if it’s him or them that’s really insane Louise, she’s all right, she’s just near She’s delicate and seems like the mirror But she just makes it all too concise and too clear That
  3. Bod Dylan's "Gates of Eden" is a huge hit with Dylan fans. It may not be as well known as some of his other tunes, but believe me among the Dylanologists as we call them, Gates of Eden is pure gold. One verse (infra) rather sticks out as we decide what is fake and what is not fake. Think about it. The kingdoms of experience In the precious winds they rot While paupers change possessions Each one wishing for what the other has got And the princess and the prince Discuss what's real and what is not It doesn't matter inside the Gates of Eden
  4. Pink Floyd. Need I say more? [Verse 3: Roger Waters] Hey you, WhitehouseHaha, charade you areYou house proud town mouseHaha, charade you areYou're tryin' to keep our feelings off the streetYou're nearly a real treatAll tight lips and cold feetAnd do you feel abused?You! Gotta stem the evil tideAnd keep it all on the inside and by the way, which one is pink?
  5. I may go for "Lyric of the Week", but here we go: In honor of the wild fires out West, once again Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones: Gimme Shelter [Verse 2: Mick Jagger and Merry Clayton] Ooh, see the fire is sweeping Our very street today Burns like a red coal carpet Mad bull lost your way And, as a special bonus, a photo from my front yard of the Bighorn Fire near Tucson a month or so ago.
  6. Let us spice up the moribund General Topic Tab. I propose a Lyric of the Day Thread. Topical. Transgressive. Subversive. Cute. Snarky. Profound. Truth to Power. My first submission: From the Rolling Stones "Living in a Ghost Town" Chorus 2. Chorus 2]Preachers were all preachin'Charities beseechin'Politicians dealin'Thieves were happy stealin'Widows were all weepin'(There's) no beds for us to sleep inAlways had the feelin'It will all come tumblin' down Well I have always thought that the Stones had a keen eye on the
  7. Hell, where I live, I would just like to have 4G.
  8. I feel your pain, I have suffered from tinnitus for a number of years, no treatment available. Take your time, the ENT may have some options for treatment.
  9. Maybe people are more worried about feeding their family than $500 powercables. Audiophiles are a First World artifact. My restaurant is closed, my bar is closed, my gym is closed, my school is in limbo. All those employees are screwed. What did the Talking Heads say in “Life During Wartime” ? “ain’t got no records to play”
  10. Modern Music (popular, not cool stuff on Bandcamp) is: "Autotuned voices warbling in faux pan Arabic wails, against synth drums machines"
  11. Yes. Exactly. There was a book about this topic, but I can’t remember the title. The Song Machine, noted above, maybe? Mentioned T. Swift @[email protected] et al
  12. My thesis: Computers, Algorithms and advanced technology killed modern music or have your wondered why most popular music sounds the same? My proof: 1. Autotune. (no further explanation required) 2. Algorithms used by music streaming companies constantly monitor your listening habits so they can provide you with more music the computer believes you would like to hear. Hence, your exposure to musical diversity becomes narrow. Over time you subconsciously bond to computer generated playlists. This trend is exceptionally dangerous as it, over time, could e
  13. As I stated, the “giveaway” was at the end of the post. Location is most helpful upfront.
  14. Once again. It would be nice if the OP location was HILIGHTED. Post was almost like German. Had to go to the end of the post for the verb. Or, this case, the UK location. No disrespect to the OP. This is a web site issue.
  15. MQA? I thought we all agreed that we did not like MQA. What gives? Oh dear. I am clutching my pearls. Do I have to rip the masking tape off of my MQA button? Guidance please!
