Last Kiss – Pearl Jam

A lost and taxing long day, a day where lot of things changed in me, and then you have fucking Pearl Jam to rip your heart apart. It is like your heart is cut out from you and someone is stamping on it and the sweet misery flows from the song endlessly.

My new resolution is to revive all my parents old records and also collect and organize all my music – 80s and 90s favorites mainly and also keep a juke box in my blog of my favorite music. VinusJukeBox label in this blog should fetch you the songs if interested.

I knew someone who loved this song, who lost a lover to depression, who could never get over the death of that loved one. I have heard him jamming to this song , singing and weeping, his guitar all wet with tears.

Pledge to not brush off depressive symptoms in people, to learn to empathize rather than trivialize it. Life is a gift, do not let people throw that away, attack the symptoms before it spreads. Hang in there, there is always tomorrow, the storm will pass, there are lot of people life is worth living for.

So here is the song….sea of emotions! This is for you my friend…and for one of the most genuine tears and love I have seen, I almost could see how you kept your lover alive through your music and simply through your eyes, it gave me a lot of faith in people and love, a long time ago. 🙂

Last Kiss – Pearl Jam
Oh where, oh where, can my baby be?
The Lord took her away from me.
She’s gone to heaven so I’ve got to be good,
So I can see my baby when I leave this world.
We were out on a date in my daddy’s car,
We hadn’t driven very far.
There in the road straight ahead,
A car was stalled, the engine was dead.
I couldn’t stop, so I swerved to the right,
I’ll never forget the sound that night.
The screaming tires, the busting glass,
The painful scream that I heard last.
When I woke up, the rain was pouring down,
There were people standing all around.
Something warm flowing through my eyes,
But somehow I found my baby that night.
I lifted her head, she looked at me and said,
“Hold me darling just a little while.”
I held her close, I kissed her our last kiss,
I found the love that I knew I had missed.
Well now she’s gone even though I hold her tight,
I lost my love, my life that night.

Don’t Speak – No Doubt

If you are from my generation, you cannot forget No Doubt. Gewn Stefani and her childhood sweetheart was the life of that band, and eventually fame and life and rock and roll road life perhaps killed the life out of their love too. This is the song she sang as a eulogy to the guitarist her lover after they decided to go two ways. What a soulful performance, and the live shows of this song was incredibly touching I felt. I remember crying seeing the performance. The way she sang, the way she looked at the guitarist and wept between during her gig. Musicians with a story, a band with a soul, always felt affinity for them. So there you go a song to keep in my blog 🙂
Don’t Speak
No Doubt
You and me
We used to be together
Everyday together always
I really feel
That I’m losing my best friend
I can’t believe
This could be the end
It looks as though you’re letting go
And if it’s real
Well I don’t want to know
Don’t speak
I know just what you’re saying
So please stop explaining
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts
Don’t speak
I know what you’re thinking
I don’t need your reasons
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts
Our memories
Well, they can be inviting
But some are altogether
Mighty frightening
As we die, both you and I
With my head in my hands
I sit and cry
Don’t speak
I know just what you’re saying
So please stop explaining
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts (no, no, no)
Don’t speak
I know what you’re thinking
I don’t need your reasons
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts
It’s all ending
I gotta stop pretending who we are
You and me I can see us dying, are we?
Don’t speak
I know just what you’re saying
So please stop explaining
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts (no, no, no)
Don’t speak
I know what you’re thinking
And I don’t need your reasons
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts
Don’t tell me ’cause it hurts!
I know what you’re saying
So please stop explaining
Don’t speak
Don’t speak
Don’t speak
Oh I know what you’re thinking
And I don’t need your reasons
I know you’re good
I know you’re good
I know you’re real good
Oh, la la la la la la, la la la la la la
Don’t, don’t, uh-huh hush, hush darlin’
Hush, hush darlin’ hush, hush
Don’t tell me tell me ’cause it hurts
Hush, hush darlin’ hush, hush darlin’
Hush, hush don’t tell me tell me ’cause it hurts
Songwriters: Nadir Khayat / Stefani Germanotta

You Sexy Thing

I have got love for you if you were born in the 80s the 80s! Goes the Calvin Harris track! 
 I was born just three months before the golden 80s dawned upon the world and the world changed to be something which it was never before. Well I was born, I claim, as a prologue to the awesomeness that was to arrive with the 80s. Thats right, even the cult Gunda movie was made because I was born I say.
But this 70s track has been in my all time favorite list, I have danced to this song a lot, in the shower, whilst cooking, whilst running, whilst sketching and painting, it fills me with my childhood memories of the music obsessed family and my growing up times. Thanks to my parents who were so much into music that they say, the only way I would sit idle when i was a toddler, was when they played their record collection for me. I miss that record player. The one they got surrendering their leaves when they were in their first job. The precious treat they got for themselves.

Records were before CDs, before cassatttes. When I walk around in Shoreditch where I live now, I see all those retro record shops and it makes me want to own a record player just like the one my parents had. Atticus loved music and beyond all he loved his wife, his childhood sweet heart, my mother, who sang for him like a cuckoo.

So here is a track for the weekend from the 70s. Hot hot singing – Yo Sexy thing by Hot chocolate.
You Sexy Thing
I believe in miracles
Where you from
You sexy thing, sexy thing you
I believe in miracles
Since you came along
You sexy thing
Where did you come from, baby?
How did you know I needed you?
How did you know I needed you so badly?
How did you know I’d give my heart gladly?
Yesterday I was one of the lonely people
Now you’re lying close to me, making love to me
I believe in miracles

I believe in miracles
