Za Green Monster

Don´t get me wrong, but if you are able to love, you will always, somehow feel jealous somewhere.
Always heard that jealousy can destroy relations.
Totally bullshit to me.
Totally truth to be.
Don´t get me wrong, but who´s in line of fire when you’re throwing stones in the eyes of the jackal?
So, with no big things about this particular felling two songs to call upon…

Depeche Mode – Try Walking in my shoes

Gossip - Jelousy

It's foggy, but it's not Sintra

Grey kind of day. The temperature went up to positives, which is not bad. The sun on the other hand has hidden it's face in a cloud of fog. Took a personal day, I guess even the sun has its day. Incredible how some people can be directly influenced by the weather. Also, a big piece of influence can be the place where you're standing. If this fog was in Sintra (Portugal), then yes, that would be a good kick start to a day. Although foggy, Sintra holds a special kind of magic, only enhanced by fog. But I'm not in Sintra, not even near. I'm on the other side of the world, on the other side of everything or almost everything. The days are different and so are the nights. The sun as surrendered it's place to the cold winds and snow, negative temperatures and icy mornings. But yet, we adapt, make it livable and enjoy small portions of what we call happiness. So, enjoy: Zero 7, Somersault. Your thoughts as usual on the little white box that says "piece of your soul please!". Thanks.

Shag that Star

Well, it's been a while since I posted anything. I had hopes that in the past week someone would at least post a comment or so. I guess I will have to go on without an audience as I did before.
If there's one artist in the musical world that has triggered more sexual appeal than any, I would say, David Bowie takes the prize. Whether he was bisexual or not remains a mystery, the truth is that the chameleon of pop gets better as he grows old. I remember a married women telling me that, if right now she had the chance of shagging that star, she wouldn't flinch. Whatever happened to fidelity. I guess we will open a exception for David Bowie, and this takes us to our next subject. Who would you shag if you had to choose a celebrity? Who would it be? We know the general female opinion but give us an input. I would choose Nina Persson, the vocal leader of The Cardigans. She always looked like she could use a good shag. No offense Nina but I think you could use a little loveeeeee.
So people, give me your celebrity shag, don't be shy. Any celebrity is good, they are all the same, no shame in picking Cher. Heeeeh... But I wouldn't.

Song of the day: David Bowie - Major Tom.

Universe is chaos, Yap...

Universe is chaos. I say this because there isn't really any sense of fairness or justice. I mean, yes you can rack up a few brownie points, good karma here, good karma there, and yeah, you'll get a couple of free caramel lattes at Starbucks, a free car wash, or a $30 on the lottery. But that is as much as it goes for the majority of us. That's as good as it gets in this life. All the sense of fairness that you might have, just drop it. Nothing of value comes free in this world. At least nothing that you really want. Remembering the Rolling Stones, you can't always get what you want, but sometimes you get what you need. The universe revolves around chaos, a randomness of split second decisions and actions. All heroes are dead, and the only ones that are alive, are either in our heads or believe they are the next Jesus. F#uck, maybe the 2012 movie has the right concept with all of those kinda Noah's arcs to save some of us. I hope by then I have racked up a lot of brownie points because I don't have friends in high places. Bring those big Barges.

Ahhhh, those zombie daysss...

The one and only Godspeed you Black Emperor, and are they good, oh my godddd ( Iknow there's one out there).

TOP 5 Sci-Fi movies - reloaded

Good top 5 miss BeKa!!! Haven't seen Stalker, will look into that definitly.
For now, my Top 5:

5 - The Time Machine, the original one. Fantastic story, fantastic movie. Guy Pearce, eat your heart out. H.G. Wells writes the most fantastic time travel story.
4 - The Matrix/ Dark City - I had to put both, although the Watchowsky brothers did a fantastic job, Alex Proyas with dark city, released in 1998, explores that idea, and even certain nuances and ambiance in the movie seem very similar to one another. Dark city came first.
3 - 2001 Space Odissey - It's a mind f#ck, it's existensialism, it's pure sci-fi and it rocks
2 - The original Star Wars Trilogy.
And number one, a classic.
1 - Blade Runner - for me the ultimate Sci-fi, noir, with a fantastic texture. Just brilliant.

Sorry love, I love Equilibrium,I think it's fantastic, the concept is really well executed, and Christian Bale, f#ck, he's good in every role, from Empire of the Sun (will not even mention The Machinist, can't believe he wasn't even nominated for an oscar) to the Batman Role, he is just a fantastic actor, I just don't think it has enough in it to compete with the others on the top 5.

And it seems to be The Matrix soundtrack day, because here goes another one:
I think it's track number 6: Clubbed to Death, Rob Dougan.

TOP 5 Sci-Fi Movies - BeKa

Excuse me...Equilibrium is not great! It's fabulastic!!Besides, leading role for Christian Bale: the kid that brings any mortal to a flowing weep followed by the Machinist that turns the weeping into a deep soul ache..

I will not mention Star Wars on the list since it's completely unnecessary...can't beat movies that have their own category!

As for the remaining 4 in my top list pls have below:

2 - Twelve Monkeys - Directed by Mr. Terry Gilliam (for those that do not know The man, he directed The Quest for the Holy Grail - Monty Python - how much sweeter could that be!), and lead by Bruce Willis (another trivia about this man - he played the harmonica for 15 mins solo at Woodstock - cool of the coolest!)

3 - The Matrix - I'm almost ashamed to put this one here, but I can't deny the first one was a blast on sci-fi/movie making at the time. And yes, the story line is a master piece as far as futuristic movies go....But I have no words to define how much I dislike Keanu Reeves and the movie's sequels.

4 - Blade Runner - Bless you Ridley Scott! Good one Vangelis!

5 - Stalker - Released in 1979 and almost unknown to the Hollywood followers. Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky - I had to search for the name because I had no idea who the guy was. Do not expect an expected future, this movie is all about an alternative reality shown in a slow paced slide show. It will make your heart pound with only a gentle change of scene...highly unrated unfortunately....

Oh my dog...I had so many more to list...

PS - If Spielberg by any chance reads this...I'm sorry!!!! You're still in my heart but, but, YES I'M A TRAITOR!!!!!! But still love ya....

Top's that makes us want to dance, cry and f#ck!

Ok, probably not the all time favourites (and not repeating Eternal Sunshine ok?), but more like the ones that are on my mind at this point...and remember my mind is not quite as good as it used to be, so...tcham tcham tcham!

5 - Nine Songs, Michael Winterbottom - In London, England, love blooms between an American college student, named Lisa, and a British glaciologist, named Matt, where over the next few months in between attending rock concerts, the two lovers have intense sexual encounters – Not a great movie, yet somehow kicked in.
Intimacy - Patrice Chéreau - Every Wednesday, She meets once a week – yet again, not a great movie, but as something in it. Maybe the sex?
3 - Chungking Express - Wong Kar-Wai wrote each scene either the night before or on the morning on the day of filming. A movie about love, without a plot.

2 –
Breaking the Waves - Lars von Trier – paralyze the future? (And live your dreams today. La la la…)
1 –
Until the end of the world, by Win Wenders – Kick ass photo shooting. Son + mother love story (in my honest opinion). Indian nuclear satellite has gone out of control – Original movie title “Bis ans Ende der Welt”.

As soundtrack I leave you two of the “nine songs”:

It's 7:00 am on this side of the planet. F#ck, I realized now my town is closer to the Pacific Ocean than the Atlantic. So, NO POST. It is not as if I have a lot of people going to my blog. Let me see....... 2, 3. And one is my sister in law, it doesn't count. The other two are you. So, posting or not is the same ( bu I will not post it as requested). The same people will end up reading it. I'm imagining this entire sentence with a Scottish accent. it's just hilarious.

Heart felted the Jeff Buckley, but first operation Baby, then I'll go and visit the old continent.

But for now, a challenge. And a brainy one:

TOP 5 where a romantic relationship is the main plot of the movie - It can be horror, comedy, drama, whatever.

To help you guys, my top 5:

5 - When Harry Met Sally ( the classic with the fake orgasm , just great)
4 - Reality Bites (your late 90's cool, romantic comedy with a good soundtrack, for that decade I mean)
3 - 2046 (Kar Wai Wong, full of flavour masterpiece)
2 - High Fidelity (John Cusack at it's best - the only romantic comedy with a script)
1 - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Just f#cking Brilliant)

Come on, your TOP 5, for now 1st place featured song: Beck, a masterpiece.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - A poem from Alexandre Pope (Eloisa to Abelard), a little of it goes like this:

How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd;

Immortal Thoughts

May 29, 1997
Jeff Buckley's death was not "mysterious," related to drugs, alcohol, or suicide.
There is a police report, a medical examiner's report, and an eye witness to prove that it was an accidental drowning, and that Mr. Buckley was in a good frame of mind prior to the accident.

May 26, 1998
Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk is released as a collection of polished studio tracks.
Only in 1998 I had the pleasure of hearing Jeff´s voice.
Somewhere around that date I realized I´ve been missing the album “Grace” in my life.
What a shame!
Yes, it makes quite a lot of difference to your body and soul.
Somehow along life people don´t tend to look onto other´s feet.
Probably because there is the tendency of not looking down.
Probably because there is the tendency of keeping the eyes above the line of water, as if it could make any kind of difference in one´s life.
Totally wrong.
Look down and realize the real importance of your feet.
They define what you are.
Your steps, and your shoes - they are you.
The music of Jeff Buckley is no more than the feet’s of immortality.
Keep it wisely right next to your heart.

“I see you take another drag
I have no fear of this machine!”

Radiohead - Kid A (2000) - 8. Idioteque

Mild und leise was composed in 1973 using the Music360 computer language.
The piece from Paul Lansky's came out on a Columbia/Odyssey LP in 1975 as a result of a contest run by the International Society for Contemporary Music.
It sold about 7000 copies.
Radiohead´s Idioteque samples a bit of this one.
What a good and pleasurable start for it.
The best song (or the worse) from the album that changed everything.
One more OK Computer and we all would be vomiting written advices of suicide to Tom´s nonexistent email address.
Can you keep calm felling the beat of this one at your heart?

Or you don’t have a heart?

Let me hear both sides
Let me hear both sides
I'll laugh until my head comes off
This is really happening

Global warming my ass.
Some things aren’t meant to be understood.

Such as love and passion.
Friendship and brotherhood.
It ends up being all in the bit of the beat.
If your able to reached it like your supposed to, then you’ll understand it, without the need of the word of men…

From A to Z and intact!!

Probably one of the best bands (the best for me, biased), in the world. Wait, you don't even know who I am writing of. Because... because every single album they released was fantastic. Every single album offered something new, every single album was a reflection of a group of musician's work. A true Band. Not just marketing, not just advertising. This band delivered the goods, every single time, and man, were they a delight in live performance. Seven albums were released. Now I remember NME highly criticizing this band in their first two albums. Were they in for a treat when they released their third. Probably the landmark of the 90's that echoed through the new millennium and grasped everyone's attention for sure, and still does. I will not mention awards (Grammy Awards were good to watch when there was actually good music in it). I will not mention the name, the album or song title. I will post three videos that will barely reflect the musical process of this band (I would need to post at least a dozen or more but time and space are short). Comments are welcomed, enjoy as I did and still do.

Press the links and find out.

Alternative radios are dead

I remember listening to radio, once. When there was a radio worth listening to. When there was an alternative to all that was extremely popular, f#ucking annoying and brutally murdering music. I remember that this radio didn't even have a name and was on the air for 3, 4 months and one day vanished completely. I remember listening to it religiously with my best friend. The radio was spectacular, but, no name = no DJ, just a playlist which we, so much tried to find on the internet but failed. The category alternative which was standard for something new and refreshing in those days is really misused now. I would use alternative as toilet paper if the lyrics weren't so bad, it would hurt my bottom. I remember one of the first musics they aired. At that time they were not mainstream. Ladies and Gentlemen, the only music worth listening from The Killers, a fluke maybe (like Yeah Yeah Yeahs first album)?! What we know is that they are american, from Las Vegas. First musical album Hot Fuss ,(what came next might end up as runner's up for an elevator music contest). With some influences from the 80's, "All These Things That I've Done".

Note: The Killers, a name which comes from the bass drum of a fictional band in the music video for the New Order song "Crystal". (Is this true? If so, why??? we will never know).

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - No No No

What happened to the raw musicality power of that band that started opening for The Strokes and White Stripes? What happened to that band that created powerful and unpredictable sounds such as Maps, Y Control or their first single Date with the Night?
Fever to Tell was fantastic, unpredictable, savagely explosive. Show Your Bones was ok, decreasingly ok. It's Blitz! just sounds like a collection of slow acoustic songs from Metric. Maybe a delayed influence from the early times they shared a flat in New York. So, do the following: Get your friends in your car, it's Friday night and all of you are going to your local club or just cruising to the beach. Turn the ignition key, insert Fever to Tell from Yeah Yeah Yeahs in your car stereo, light up a cigarette (optional, you can also light up any light recreational drug at your own responsibility). Turn on the volume 'till you can't hear what your friend in the backseat is saying. Skip to the second track and just let Karen O take it from there. She'll scream and melt your brain, with a guitar that's sounds like a Spitfire zeroing on your ass, and you'll squeeze that feeling 'till that last second! And after that, gear up and Rock'n Roll!!
Date With the Night from the album Fever to Tell, released in April 2003. Ladies and Gentlemen, the good old Yeah Yeah Yeahs!!!

Headphone Love = METRIC for a while

I have a beautiful pair of headphones! Koss is the brand, and for a fair price it boosts a sound way above average headphones. And every time I would catch the train and the subway on my way to work, I would wear them proudly as they would immerse me completely in music. Have you ever had the feeling, when you're walking through the streets, with your headphones on, and you imagine yourself in the middle of a music clip. That's how good those headphones are. I remember at that time listening to a lot of Metric on my way to work. I mean, Metric is ok, but you can only listen to their albums so many times. After a while it gets annoying. By the way, Metric is a Canadian band for most of you who don't know. And yes, canadians already apologized for Alanis Morissete, Celine Dion and Brian Adams and they moved forward. They do have good music though. Not that most of them will listen to it but that's something to talk about on another day. There was one song from Metric that always reminded me of a good friend. A friend with which I shared a flat in Amsterdam, even a bed, and most of all, I remember trying to unlock our bikes in the middle of a plaza in Amsterdam for 30 minutes at 4 am, laughing throughout the whole process. For my warrior princess, a true Princess Mononoke, a true Kutcthie. I dedicate you this song. Love is a place, last song from the album Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?. Released on September 2 of 2003.

Road to Hell

Because we're all fathers and sons, at least most of us are. Because I remember my dad having a BMW with a blaupunkt stereo cassette player in it. And I will always remember one cassette that played and played and continued to play several times. Much unknown to the common musical lover, but it's a classic and it's good. I wish I had watched a live performance from this guy, he definitely has one of those voices that will give you the goose bumps. Released in 1989, Road to hell, from the album that shares the same name, here performed live at the Plymouth Pavilion 13th April of 2006. With no further delays, this one is for you dad: Chris Rea.

“Ser culto es el único modo de ser libre” - José Martí

On August 28th I found myself soaked in sweat. The minute I step outside of the airplane I feel a wave of heat, a wall of humidity hitting me in the face. It was pleasant and unpredictable, but welcome after almost 4 hours of flight. Varadero, Cuba, the airport had basically no air conditioning, and people were selling beer right outside of the building. If you've never been to Cuba, you can't imagine the beaches they have, the colour of the water and the lack of pollution and clean air. The warmth of the water can only be compared to the hospitality and warmth of our fellow Cubans. Unfortunately that's all they can offer. When you travel to Varadero, out of the resorts area you see how Cuba truly is, at least a part of it for what some Cuban friends told me, Havana seems to be much worse. Some asked me to sell them my perfume bottle, my portable DVD player, to mail them diapers and all kinds of assortments. They don't have access to 10% of the everyday comforts that we take for granted. I can't say they are completely unhappy, but I can't say also that they have a fair chance in life of becoming all they can be.
You might guess what comes next, but there's no way to escape it, I really don't want to escape it because it's f*cking fantastic. Some of the musicians who performed in Havana in local clubs 40, 50 years ago, were finally given the recognition and their talent transpired overboard that little island, that by some f*cked up reason is still being embargoed (maybe it's the cigars or the rum, the americans might have something against it or maybe is their communist healthcare system, huuuuuuu, spooky). The truth is Buena Vista Social Club, recorded in 1997, transpires some of the great musical culture from those club nights in Havana that disappeared in the 50's and 60's.
With no further delays - Buena Vista Social Club - Chan Chan.

P.S. - Check Wim Wenders spectacular documentary of the same name. Buena Vista Social Club.

Eastcoaster Geek

Hey, east coasters, more precisely, Maria. I know you're out there, on your own, figuring it all out. At least figure out all that you don't want, everything that you like will come next. Wise man said that "only the fools stall to live in the comfort of the present..."
Ok, I totally made that up, but it sounded sooooo profound, and I'll be throwing up next, but before that, what else, our song of the day, dedicated tou our own geek in the family, our lonely east coaster.
Ladies and few Gentlemen, Suede - By the sea. Never very famous in the States, but off course, they had Britney Spears and Beyonce music to torture clothing store's customers and innocent bystanders, as stated in my earlyer posts. They were actually called the Suede Of London in the US, go figure. Well, if the Spanish can call the Rolling Stones, Las Piedras Rolantes, that isn't actually that bad, but still retarded though. Really stupid! Well both times I saw them live, they were really fantastic. Real good stage presence, not that we can say much for the new bands in these days. F#ck!! Those marketing guys really f#cked up music completely. To the bone I say, to the bone!

P.S. Hey Geek, the chorus has all the answers to life, listen to it carefully, the mosquitoes are eating my laptop, gotta go.
Bet you thought I was going to post something really goth didn't you? Ahah, fooled you!!

Are you a Fanboy?

Alright, Fanboys is not a great movie, doesn't have a great script (although the cameo apearences are hilarious), but is about something that most of us enjoyed and cherished for years. Star Wars. Yeah, that's right, STAR WARS. Nope. I'm not that fanatic, I don't know small facts and details about the characters in the movies and this is not a fan statement. I guess a lot of us grew up watching those movies, sometimes over and over during summer reruns late at night. It was just part of our culture and whether you like it or not, each and everyone of us (except for trekers) wanted to have a little of Han Solo, a little of Luke Skywalker, a little of Darth vader, Obi Wan Kenobi and off course the beautiful Leia Organa. I mean being a stormtrooper must be hell during summertime, but kicks ass when we walk in pairs. Nervertheless, each and everyone of us has an adventure to tell about our childhood summertimes with our friends. That's what is all about, an adventure with your friends.
Since Star Wars was the drive here, let me bring you to speed with some other guys who got a taste of it also. Let me just say you would like to get out of the way of that Tie fighter that's coming your way. Just press play and volume up.

P.S. A little tip from a friend from the other side of the ocean, said that a Miss Beca might like this one, at least the begining.

Ash - Lose Control, released in 1996 from the Album 1977 (you might guess why the name of the album is 1977).

Don't fix what is not broken, NOT!!!

You might hear a lot of times, "If it's not broken, don't fix it". Well this is not entirely true sometimes. Sometimes you have to brake it because what you have might not be what is right, although what is right might not be what you need, and so on and so on... The bottom line here is, if you aren't completely happy you shoudn't settle for less, that's what happens when you're too comfortable to move or change. Man, sometimes you have to brake it. But always with moderation, one foot on the ground and facing the thin line in the horizon. That takes us to our nex pick of the day: You Can't always get what you want - Rolling Stones. released on their 1969 album Let It Bleed.

Mr Peter, this one is for you. Listen to it wiselly and make your own conclusions. If you have a shot at getting first place, don't blink.

4 x 4 f#cking 2

I would say I'm not a very impressionable person. I would actually say that there are only three things in life that will get me excited. THe first is my wife, the second is Music and the third are Movies.
So, today's subject is poetry. This all makes sense I know, bare with me. A couple of years ago I saw this fantastic comedy about football (soccer for this side of the continent). English comedy that went unnoticed (wich happens with most of them, not surely why, their humour's f#cking great). The movie was called Mike Basset England Manager. It's about an underdog coach that is hired to take England's squad to the world cup final. It's hilarious and unpredictable to say the most. Nevertheless, the subject in question is a poem. A poem written by Ruddyard Kippling. The name of the poem is IF. And there's this sketch in the movie, where this guy is being pounded by the press to resign and quit, and he starts silently declaiming this poem. It still gives me the shivers. You have to watch it.

Click the link below.
"If" by Rudyard Kipling, declaimed by Ricky Tomlinson in Mike BAsset Englan Coach

An excert from If

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

Music is allergic to air conditioner

What?! Music is allergic to air conditioner?! It's true. I drove by a beautiful blue and white Dodge Viper yesterday. It was a spectacular day, warm and sunny drinkable afternoon. And this guy was listening to some music with the windows up. I say, spread the music, let it out when your going for a drive, share it with world, music hates air conditioner (scientifically proven, probably). Music is allergic to closed spaces. Hear it loud and clear, stereo or mono. Just let it slide through your speakers. Off course, and I'll make this very clear. This only applies to good music. Bad music, you should not roll down your windows or turn it up. You shouldn't even listen to it. It's like bad wine. Don't drink it. The hang over is a killer.
Here's an example of good driving music. Loud, clear and with your car windows rolled down. Suck on that one Dodge Viper Owner.

Jacqueline is track number 1 on Franz Ferdinand’s debut album by Scottish indie rock band Franz Ferdinand, released in early 2004.
Turn on your volume.

Clothing Store Agony

I have a question. One that has plagued me since I started dressing myself and started looking for my own t-shirts. Why? Why does the man insist on plaguing us, shop goers, innocent bystanders, little todlers, senior citizens with incessantly loud, obnoxious trendy music?
Are we suppose to just run thru the store and not notice what we're buying, only to get away from it? Is it a ploy to feed into mindless impulsive buys? Is it just bad taste in music? Or are there actualy people o enjoy ear rappings by Beyonce, Lady GaGa or My Chemical Romance?
As Hank Moody would say, "Here's to all you, trendy motherf*ckers".
Learn something.

Empty books and warm Farewells

A couple of years ago, two friends gave me a book. This happened when I was at the airport in Lisbon ready to start a new adventure in another country, but that's a different story for another post. Between tears, hugs and farewells, as I received the gift, I saw that it was an empty book that they handed me. I was curious and asked why, and my friends kindly replied that the empty book was a way to register all of the upcoming adventures and one day share with them all that I had written. May truth be told that I barely touched it, and a lot happened in between. So with all my shame and apologies I created this blog, inspired by those two friends, whom I have known since I was a child. By the way, the title on the book was: The Rock'n Roll Chronicles of Richard Petterson.
Here's to them, here’s to not letting your friends down, I honour you both with the following song from Depeche Mode.

Because good friends will always be friends

Because good friends will always be friends, because good friends will be there 'till the end, will be there when you leave, when you return and will remember your birthday (even if it's a month later. Here is a song that will always remind me of the only friends that I have, the good friends. Here’s to the good friends that I had, that I have and that I will have, the friends with witch I shared a beer, a bundle of tequila shots, sunrises in Sintra, waking up in the beach, a train ride thru several countries, a 3 hour road trip that took up to 8 hours! Here’s to all of them, and may them be happy.

This song reached a massive audience in one night, when it was used during the special two part "Clip Show" of the extremely popular show Seinfeld in 1998. The song played during a montage of clips from the show's history.
Band member Mike Dirnt went on to state that the release of this song was probably the "most punk" thing they could have done.
With no further delays, your Song of the day – Good Riddance (Time of your Life) released in 1997 in the album Nimrod by Green Day.

Sunday, July 26, 2009


Because life is too short, because nobody reads the fine print between the lines and because it takes a couple of minutes for an ice cream to melt, with no further delays, your Song of the Day.

This takes us back to January 1968, cover version of All Along the Watchtower, performed by the great Jimmy Hendrix. The song was originally written in November 1967 by Bob Dylan while recovering from a motocycle accident. Among various artists who did a cover of this song are U2, Prince, Dave Mathews Band and Neil Young, none achieved such phenomenal musicality as Hendryx did. The solo in this cover version is the reason why wah-wah pedals were invented.

Leave your thoughts on this one. More to follow. And don't forget, give us your song of the day also.
