Valerie thank for going the extra mile and making a sublime effort by putting on a show accent and all... you channelled Dorothy perfectly.Well ... I done it! This is for you, Rob ... I dared! (Very many thanks for the week, Joo ... I'm sorry I couldn't participate more.)
Val's comments for this video made me laugh. I took a screen shot to share.A cover of a song written by Lou Reed, from his album The Raven, released on January 28, 2003 by Sire Records. It is a concept album, recounting the short stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe through word and song, and was based on his 2000 opera co-written with Robert Wilson, POEtry.
I'm a little balloon and I get puffed up
Squeeze me and bend me it's never enough
Put your lips around me, blow me up
But if you prick me I will pop
I'm a little balloon full and firm
Here is my aft and here is my stern
Here's my lips and here's my hose
Put me down or I will burst
If you prick me I will burst
Hi Mikkel! Thanks for checking in. I have done that a lot too! I will look forward to your posts in another Season?!I have to throw in the towel on that clawhammer inspired Poe rendition I was working on, I realize that I bit of more than I could chew .
Sorry to miss yet another week. I keep finding songs but not the time to learn them :-/
Thank you for your entry and your lovely words, Jim!Take This Waltz - Leonard Cohen
The song's lyrics are a loose translation, into English, of the poem Pequeño vals vienés (Little Viennese Waltz) by the Spanish poet Federico García Lorca (one of Cohen's favorite poets). The poem was first published in Lorca's seminal book Poeta en Nueva York.
I'm not sure how close I got the tune to Cohen's, but time is running out.
Thanks for a great job of hosting this Season Joo.
Do not feel sad JooSeeing everyone moving to John's Season made me pen this haiku -
Looking for a name,
Left me alone in my game -
Thanks to Rob, Alan and Arcy for your entries! I really enjoyed them!
I will not do my daily wrap-up today since there are only a few entries. I will wait for more songs to come in.
There is still 1 more day to go. Keep the songs coming!!!
Here is a little video I made today. Not an entry.
A recording of an improvisation with my little nephew Gylan sometime in June.
He was picking the rhythm; I played the melody and sang out random words from a few books and brochures. Then I added some harmonies. The video is a footage of Gylan spinning a torch, he must be around 3 here.
