Riders On The Storm, The Doors

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this world we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out alone
Riders on the storm

There’s a killer on the road
His brain is squirmin’ like a toad
Take a long holiday
Let your children play
If ya give this man a ride
Sweet family will die
Killer on the road, yeah

Girl ya gotta love your man
Girl ya gotta love your man
Take him by the hand
Make him understand
The world on you depends
Our life will never end
Gotta love your man, yeah

Wow!

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this world we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out alone
Riders on the storm

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm

Doors: People are strange

People Are StrangeDoors
People are strange when you’re a stranger
Faces look ugly when you’re alone
Women seem wicked when you’re unwanted
Streets are uneven when you’re down

When you’re strange

Faces come out of the rain
When you’re strange
No one remembers your name
When you’re strange
When you’re strange
When you’re strange

People are strange when you’re a stranger
Faces look ugly when you’re alone
Women seem wicked when you’re unwanted
Streets are uneven when you’re down

When you’re strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you’re strange
No one remembers your name
When you’re strange
When you’re strange
When you’re strange

When you’re strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you’re strange
No one remembers your name
When you’re strange
When you’re strange
When you’re strange   

  

 The English poet William Blake said:
“The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom;
The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction;
One law for the lion and ox is oppression”He explains that,
           
“Without Contraries is no progression. 
  Attraction and Repulsion,
  Reason and Energy, 
  Love and Hate, are necessary to Human existence.
  From these contraries spring what the religious call
  Good & Evil.

  Good is the passive that obeys Reason. 
   Evil is the active springingfrom Energy.
             Good is Heaven. Evil is Hell.”

Bob Dylan: Series Of Dreams


Series Of Dreams, Bob Dylan

I was thinking of a series of dreams
Where nothing comes up to the top.
Everything stays down where it’s wounded
And comes to a permanent stop.
Wasn’t thinking of anything specific,
Like in a dream, when someone wakes up and screams.
Nothing truly very scientific,
Just thinking of a series of dreams.

Thinking of a series of dream,
Where the middle and the bottom drop out,
And you walkin’ out of the darkness,
And into the shadows of doubt,
Wasn’t going to any get troubled
You believe in it’s whatever it seemed
Nothing to heavy to buzz the bubble

Thinking of a series of dreams
Where the time and the tempo drag,
And there’s no exit in any direction
‘Cept the one that you can’t see with your eyes.
Wasn’t making any great connections,
Wasn’t falling for any intricate schemes.
Nothing that would pass inspection,
Just thinking of a series of dreams.

Dreams where the umbrella is folded,
And into the path you are hurled,
And the cards are no good that you’re holding
Unless they’re from another world.

In one, the surface was frozen.
In another, I witnessed a crime.
In one, I was running, and in another
All I seemed to be doing was climb
Wasn’t looking for any special assistance,
Not going to any great extremes.
I’d already gone the distance,
Just thinking of a series of dreams.

Dreams where the umbrella is folded,
And into the path you are hurled,
And the cards are no good that you’re holding
Unless they’re from another world.

I’d already gone the distance,
Just thinking of a series of dreams.
Just thinking of a series of dreams.
Just thinking of a series of dreams.

Bob Dylan: Blood in my eyes for you


Woke up this morning, feeling blue
Seen a good looking girl, can I make love with you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
I got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don’t care what in the world you do.

I went back home, put on my tie
Gonna get that girl that money will buy
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
I got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don’t care what in the world you do.

She looked at me, begin to smile
Said, “Hey, hey, man, can’t you wait a little while ?”
No, no babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
No, no babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don’t care what in the world you do.

No, no, ma’am, I can’t wait
You got my money, now you’re trying to break this date
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don’t care what in the world you do.

I’ll tell you something, tell you the facts
You don’t want to give my money back
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
Hey, hey, babe, I got blood in my eyes for you
I got blood in my eyes for you, baby
I don’t care what in the world you do.

Bob Dylan:The Band – Forever Young




Forever Young Bob Dylan

May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous,
May you grow up to be true,
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you.
May you always be courageous,
Stand upright and be strong,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

Bob Dylan: Just Like A Woman


Just Like A Woman

Just Like A Woman, Bob Dylan

Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Ev’rybody knows
That Baby’s got new clothes
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls
She takes just like a woman, yes she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

Queen Mary, she’s my friend
Yes, I believe I’ll go see her again
Nobody has to guess
That Baby can’t be blessed
Till she finally sees that she’s like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls
She takes just like a woman, yes she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

It’s was raining from the first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here
And your long-time curse hurts
But what’s worse
Is this pain in here
I can’t stay in here
Ain’t it clear that.

I just can’t fit
Yes, I believe it’s time for us to quit
When we meet again
Introduced as friends
Please don’t let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world
Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes you do
You make love just like a woman, yes you do
Then you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.

Melanie Safka: Bob Dylan’s Don’t think twice it’s alright: a wonderful rendition by Melanie Safka



It ain’t no use to sit and wonder why Babe
It don’t matter any how
Ain’t no use to sit and wonder why Babe
If you don’t know by now
When the rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I’ll be gone
Well, you’re the reason I’m travelin’ on
Don’t think twice, it’s all right

Ain’t no use in turnin’ on your light Babe
Like I never knowed
Ain’t no use in turnin’ on your light Babe
I’m on the dark side of the road
Still I wish there was somethin’ you could do or say
Something to make me change my mind and stay
Well, we never did too much talkin’ anyway
Don’t think twice, it’s all right

I’m going down this long lonesome road Babe
I’m bound for I can’t tell
Good-bye’s just another word Babe
So I’ll just say fare thee well
I ain’t sayin’ that you treated me unkind
You could have done better but I don’t mind
You just kinda wasted all my precious time
Don’t think twice, it’s all right

Ain’t no use in callin’ out my name Babe
Like you never done before
Ain’t no use in callin’ out my name Babe
I can’t hear you anymore
Well, I’m thinkin’ an’ I’m wonderin’ the way down the road
I once loved a good man a child I’m told
Well, I gave him my heart but he wanted my soul
Don’t think twice
Don’t think twice, it’s all…
Don’t think twice, it’s all right

Still I wish there was somethin’ you could do or say
Something to make me change my mind and stay
Well, we never did too much talkin’ anyway
Don’t think twice, it’s all right

Egypt Wants its Treasures Back


 Acropolis was cannibalized too, isn’t it? By the same conquering armies…With the same banner: “we do this for your own good, you should be thankful”, more or less.
But then, why would all these little nations want back what belonged to them by birthright: Can’t they understand who’s in power…Respect that…it’s aconcept as old as civilization: “what’s yours is mime, what’s mine is not yours, because I am your master”. 

Give me Love: George Harrison


It’s such a pity, that so many people, especially in Europe, are still smoking themselves to death, leaving behind devastating memories of agonizing deaths. I wish they (Europa) had a proactive social engine, such as the one here in California, where the culture of smoking has been replaced almost entirely by the opposite. This has resulted in a tremendous reduction in COPD, from chronic bronchitis and emphysema to lung cancer. Who knows: May be George Harrison would still be writing songs of great philosophical, religious, and social importance today. I can only hope that his son, will be just as inspired, if not more than his father. So far his contribution in the concert dedicated to George was a moving homage of love and dedication. He is a good singer and guitar player, keeping up with the best artist in the world of music: we wish him luck.

Here comes the sun: George Harrison


Here Comes The Sun, George Harrison

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it’s all right

Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it’s all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it’s all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it’s all right
It’s all right

Isn’t it a pity – Concert for George Harrison



Isn’t It A Pity, George Harrison

Isn’t it a pity
Now, isn’t it a shame
How we break each other’s hearts
And cause each other pain
How we take each other’s love
Without thinking anymore
Forgetting to give back
Isn’t it a pity

Some things take so long
But how do I explain
When not too many people
Can see we’re all the same
And because of all their tears
Their eyes can’t hope to see
The beauty that surrounds them
Isn’t it a pity

Isn’t it a pity
Isn’t is a shame
How we break each other’s hearts
And cause each other pain
How we take each other’s love
Without thinking anymore
Forgetting to give back
Isn’t it a pity

Forgetting to give back
Isn’t it a pity
Forgetting to give back
Now, isn’t it a pity

What a pity
What a pity, pity, pity
What a pity
What a pity, pity, pity

//

Isn’t it a pity
Now, isn’t it a shame
How we break each other’s hearts
And cause each other pain
How we take each other’s love
Without thinking anymore
Forgetting to give back
Isn’t it a pity

Some things take so long
But how do I explain
When not too many people
Can see we’re all the same
And because of all their tears
Their eyes can’t hope to see
The beauty that surrounds them
Isn’t it a pity

Isn’t it a pity
Isn’t is a shame
How we break each other’s hearts
And cause each other pain
How we take each other’s love
Without thinking anymore
Forgetting to give back
Isn’t it a pity

Forgetting to give back
Isn’t it a pity
Forgetting to give back
Now, isn’t it a pity

What a pity
What a pity, pity, pity
What a pity
What a pity, pity, pity
