BEING DIFFICULT

Here's the thing with music- I don't really listen to it.

And when I do it tends to be something not remotely current.

What's worse is that I listen to the same song- over and over and over- till everyone around me has had enough of the song to last a few lifetimes. I find though, that it jars to skip form one song to another- even if it's the same singer or genre.

Anyway, today I was listening to Raphael by Carla Bruni- it's in French and sounds very like a hazy stream.

And then I listened to Castles in the Air by Don McLean. Apologies, but I feel that the song simply exemplifies Rhett Butler at the end of Gone With the Wind- which, undoubtedly, is part of it's charm.

And that is all I shall listen to for the rest of the year.

    And here I go commenting on my own blog- I notice that there is somebody visiting from Hong Kong. How lovely that sounds!

    AND London... I always wished I was as globe-trotting as my blog was!

    Be that as it may: you can't not listen to "Bhangra bistar"... Ceezee... babee... it's the new "Sarkai liyo khatiya"... and if you say you don't know what that is I WILL hit you over the head with a burnt haddock.

    Nice blog Clezevra. The background colour and design makes it a tad difficult to read the script.

    Now about the song: I recently wrote a post about how a certain song is struck in your head. Glad that many people think about the same topic. I guess that makes us feel that everything is connected to everything else.

    Keep writing.

    Joy always,
    Susan

    Cz, as long as you don't sing it out loud, I am okay with that.
    And Betty, why burnt? Imagery?

    It happened to be handy at that moment... long story... don't ask.

    Well Ms. Cz
    Jamming the rewind and play button together is not a very good idea. Microsoft has a name for it...cyclic redundancy error.

    P.S: Carla Bruni is a cheap Italian skank pretending to be French. Give Edith Piaf a spin. Let know what you think.

    P.P.S: I'm usually very respectful towards women, even in print but Ms. Bruni is a pretentious basterd. I put her on the same level as that conman, John Cage.

    Lovely. And I will not care in the name of art.
    Not that I have any taste in music, but it won't be influenced by the people who make it.

    Music is drawing pictures with noise. The hollow ones, a half deaf man can catch. In the name of art, you should care!

    Oooh! 'Cz' is catching on! Brilliant!
    @Sam- I really resent your saying that music has any element of noise in it at all.
    Also, imagery is not all that music is about. Sometimes its very ambiguity is its charm. 'Drawing pictures' is a crude way of putting it. It doesn't necessarily have to do that.
    And in this discussion, I do strongly agree with Cz. Personal and professional lives can not be judged with reference to each other. If one does a good job, he deserves his due applause for that.

    @Ms. Serra
    All music is noise. Its just a matter of how the brain interprets it I guess.
    Did I ever mention that a picture to me is very concrete? Because I think its always layers of disconnected thoughts and colours or the lack of it...noise on paper.
    I agree to disagree with you. The Job is related to your personal life when your profession is music.
    Not that I'm bored but this 3 comment long fight but its is getting a little redundant. Ms. Cz will probably tell us to take it outside or just throw us out :P
