LOVECATS

We move like cagey tigers
We couldn’t get closer than this
The way we walk
The way we talk
The way we stalk
The way we kiss
We slip through the streets
While everyone sleeps
Getting bigger and sleeker
And wider and brighter
We bite and scratch and scream all night
Let’s go and throw
All the songs we know

Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I’ll show you in spring
It’s a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We’re so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty!
Oh you know that I’d do anything for you
We should have each other to tea huh?
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up by the fire
And sleep for awhile
It’s the grooviest thing
It’s the perfect dream

Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I’ll show you in spring
It’s a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We’re so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty!
You know that I’d do anything for you
We should have each other to dinner
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up in the fire
Get up for awhile
It’s the grooviest thing
It’s the perfect dream

Hand in hand
Is the only way to land
And always the right way round
Not broken in pieces
Like hated little meeces
How could we miss
Someone as dumb as this?

I love you, let’s go
Oh, solid gone
How could we miss 
Someone as dumb as this?

We need to take a break.

Take a few deep breaths and just step back for a moment.

Relax. Breathe. Rest.

May Day is a holiday of traditional festivities celebrating springtime fertility. May Day celebrations usually include crowning a May Queen and dancing around a Maypole.

May Day has been celebrated in Ireland since pagan times as the Feast of Beltane.

It’s all a goddamn fake, man!
It’s like Lenin said: You look for the person who will benefit, and, uh, uh, you know…

Donny:
“I am the walrus”?

The Dude:
You know what I’m trying to say?

Donny:
“I am the walrus”

Walter Sobchak:
That fucking bitch!

The Dude:
Oh yeah!

Donny:
“I am the walrus”

Walter Sobchak:
That’s ex– SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY!
V.I. Lenin! Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov!

Donny:
(to The Dude)
What the f*ck is he talking about?

May Day is an international public holiday celebrated specifically as “Labour Day” or “International Workers’ Day” around the world.

1-May-Day-2015-Wishes-Ecards-Quotes-Message-SMS-Images-4

In 1904 the International Socialist Conference in Amsterdam, the Sixth Conference of the Second International, called on “all Social Democratic Party organisations and trade unions of all countries to demonstrate energetically on the First of May for the legal establishment of the 8-hour day, for the class demands of the proletariat, and for universal peace.” The date was chosen for “International Workers’ Day” to commemorate the Haymarket affair in Chicago on May 4, 1886. May Day has always been a day for demonstrations by various socialist, communist and anarchist groups since the Second International.

Mayday

May Day is one of the most important holidays in the People’s Republic of China, North Korea, Cuba and Russia. May Day celebrations usually include large parades with displays of military strength.

Hank Snow, the Singing Ranger

Hank Snow on the Perry Como Show in 1952:

Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis!
by Hank Snow

Listen to a story about a gal I know
She’s my music makin’ mama, I’m her hillbilly beau
She’s sweeter than the music when she tickles the strings
Sweeter than the flowers down in New Orleans
She’s my Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis, Tennessee.

She’ll play a little rhythm, do the boogie up right
A Tennessee polka, maybe blues in the night
Ever’body travels from near and far
To hear her when she picks it on that old guitar
My Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis, Tennessee.

You can hear her in the ev’nin’, when the sun sinks low
A-singin’ and a-pickin on that old banjo
You wanta jive when the words roll out of her mouth
Ever’body’s callin’ her the Queen of the South
She’s my fiddle playin’ mama from Memphis, Tennessee.

You gotta start dancin’ when she gets in the groove
Picks a big bass fiddle or yodels the blues
Plays a downbeat, offbeat, any old beat
A breakdown, a hoedown and does it up neat
She’s my bass pickin’ baby from Memphis, Tennessee.

You can tell when my baby is a-comin’ to town
All the jive-jumpin’ jitterbugs, they gather around
They keep a-yellin’ to my sweetie, now, honey, let’s go
My baby starts pickin’ and a pickin’ down low
My Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis, Tennessee.

She’ll play a little rhythm, do the boogie up right
A Tennessee polka, maybe blues in the night
Ever’body travels from near and far
To hear her when she picks it on that old guitar
My Music Makin’ Mama from Memphis, Tennessee.

LOVE YOUR MOTHER EARTH!

Earth (AKA “the World” or “the Globe”) is the third planet from the Sun and is the birthplace of humanity and the cradle of human civilization.

earth-day-2017-5650394117046272-s‘s Earth Day Doodle!

Earth is approximately 4.6 billion years old. The oldest known rocks are about 4 billion years old (rocks older than 3 billion years are rare) and the oldest fossils of living organisms are less than 3.9 billion years old. With a radius of 3,959 miles, Earth is the biggest of the known terrestrial planets, and the fifth largest in our solar system.

Planet Earth, Sol System, Milky Way Galaxy, Universe

71 Percent of the Earth’s surface is covered with water. Earth’s atmosphere is 77% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, with traces of argon, carbon dioxide and water (H20). Earth’s oceans have an average depth of about 2.5 miles and contains 97 percent of the planet’s water. Earth has a central (inner and outer) core, a rocky mantle and a solid crust.

The name “Earth” is at least 1,000 years old and it is the only planet whose name doesn’t come from from Greek or Roman mythology. The name is from Old English and Germanic origins and means “ground”.

Earth orbits the sun and completes one daily rotation every 23.9 hours. It takes 365.25 days to complete a one year trip around the sun.  The Earth’s axis is tilted 23.4 degrees to the plane of the planet’s orbit around the sun and this causes the cycle of seasons.

Earth is the only known planet that has a single moon. The moon is (an average distance of) 238,855 miles away from Earth.

We Can Run
by John Barlow & Brent Mydland

We don’t own this place though we act as if we did
It belongs to the children of our children’s kids
The actual owners haven’t even been born yet

But we never tend the garden and we rarely pay the rent
Most of it is broken and the rest of it is bent
Put it all on plastic and I wonder where we’ll be when the bills hit

We can run but we can’t hide from it
Of all possible worlds we only got one, we gotta ride on it
Whatever we’ve done we’ll never get far from what we leave behind
Baby we can run, run, run but we can’t hide

Well I’m dumping my trash in your back yard
Making certain you don’t notice really isn’t so hard
You’re so busy with your guns and all of your excuses to use them

Well it’s oil for the rich and babies for the poor
We’ve got everyone believing that more is more
If a reckoning comes maybe we’ll know what to do then

We can run but we can’t hide from it
Of all possible worlds we only got one, we gotta ride on it
Whatever we’ve done we’ll never get far from what we leave behind
Baby we can run, run, run but we can’t hide

All these complications seem to leave no choice
I heard the tongues of billions speak with just one voice
Saying just leave all the rest to me, I need it worse than you, you see
Then I heard the sound of one child crying

Today I went out walking in the amber wind
There’s a hole in the sky where the light pours in
I remember the days when I wasn’t afraid of the sunshine

But now it beats down on the ashphalt land
Like a hammering blow from God’s left hand
What little still grows
Cringes in the shade till the night-time

We can run but we can’t hide from it
Of all possible worlds we only got one, we gotta ride on it
Whatever we’ve done we’ll never get far from what we leave behind
Baby we can run, run, run but we can’t hide (….no, we can’t hide.)

Passover is the week-long festival that celebrates the emancipation of the Jews from slavery in ancient Egypt. The story of the Exodus is described in the Bible (the Old Testament) in the Book of Exodus. Moses leads the Hebrews out of Egypt, across the Red Sea to Mount Sinai, where he is given the Ten Commandments and they spend 40 years in the desert before reaching the promised land of Canaan.

Ghost Riders in the Sky! A Cowboy Legend with Music & Lyrics!

Ghost Riders in the Sky (A Cowboy Legend)

cowboy-3

Ghost Riders in the Sky!

The song tells a folk tale of a cowboy who has a vision of red-eyed, steel-hooved cattle thundering across the sky, being chased by the spirits of damned cowboys. One of the riders warns him that if he doesn’t change his ways, he’ll be doomed to join them.

The song presents an image of cowboy hell with doomed riders destined to chase the Devil’s cattle for all eternity. Known by the different titles “Riders in the Sky“, “Ghost Riders“, “Ghost Riders in the Sky” and “A Cowboy Legend“, the song has become a Country & Western Classic!

(Ghost) Riders in the Sky: A Cowboy Legend” was written by Stan Jones in 1948.
Stan Jones said he heard the story when he was 12 years old from an old cowboy.
More than 50 performers have recorded their own cover versions of the song.

Burl Ives recorded the original version of the song in February, 1949:

Vaughn Monroe recorded the song in March, 1949 and it went to Number One on the Billboard charts. Here’s a live performance from 1965:

Ghost Riders in the Sky!

(Ghost) Riders in the Sky: A Cowboy Legend

An old cowboy went ridin’ out one dark and windy day
upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way
when all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw
plowin’ through the ragged skies and up a cloudy draw

Their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel
their horns were black and shiny and their hot breath he could feel
a bolt of fear went through him as they thundered through the sky
for he saw the riders comin’ hard and he heard their mournful cries

chorus:
yippie i ohhh ohh ohh, yippie i aye ye ye
ghost riders in the sky

Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred
their shirts all soaked with sweat
he’s ridin’ hard to catch that herd
but he ain’t caught em yet
’cause they got to ride forever in that range up in the sky
on horses snortin’ fire as they ride on, hear their cries

As the riders loped on by him he heard one call his name
if you want to save your soul from hell a-ridin’ on our range
then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride
tryin’ to catch the devil’s herd across these endless skies

yippie i ohhh oh oh, yippie i aye ye ye
ghost riders in the sky, ghost riders in the sky, ghost riders in the sky…….

Ghost Rider in the Sky!

The Ventures made a surf rock cover of the song in 1961 and Dick Dale recorded a rockin’ version for his second album “King of the Surf Guitar” which was released in 1963.

The song inspired the 1949 Gene Autry film “Riders in the Sky”
and the film’s tag lines:
“Gene and Champion Ride To Glory!…
as the range echoes to the stirring strains of the great cowboy ballad!”

and
“A GREAT COWBOY BALLAD launches Gene on his most stirring adventure!”

Of course Gene Autry sings “Ghost Riders in the Sky”. A chance meeting with Stan Jones led Autry to buy the rights to the song, and he gave Jones a part in the film. Jones appears as a cowboy riding and singing along with Autry in the opening and closing scenes of the film. The song also inspired the 1953 film “Goldtown Ghost Riders” starring Gene Autry.

Elvis Presley in 1970 (in Culver City, California):

The song also inspired the horror-Western comic-book character the Ghost Rider. After Magazine Enterprises’ trademark ran out, Marvel Comics debuted its own version of the character in “Ghost Rider” #1 in February, 1967. The character was later renamed the Phantom Rider when Marvel debuted the demonic motorcyclist Ghost Rider.

The Blues Brothers performed the song in the 1998 film “Blues Brothers 2000.” Their version appears on both the soundtrack and on the album “The Blues Brothers’ Greatest Hits of All Time.” In the film, the band is booked at a bluegrass festival and announced as “The Bluegrass Brothers”. Buster Blues’ harmonica parts were recorded by John Popper of Blues Traveler.

The Doors – Hollywood Walk of Fame

According to The Doors’ Robby Krieger, it inspired the classic song “Riders on the Storm”

It evolved out of a jam session when the band was messing around with “Ghost Riders In the Sky” and it was Jim Morrison’s idea to alter the title to “Riders On The Storm.” It was also the last song Jim recorded. He went to France and died a few weeks later. If you listen closely, you can hear Jim whispering the lyrics over his singing. Ray Manzarek told Uncut magazine in September 2011: “There’s a whisper voice on ‘Riders on the Storm,’ if you listen closely, a whispered overdub that Jim adds beneath his vocal. That’s the last thing he ever did. An ephemeral, whispered overdub.” The single was released in June 1971, shortly before Morrison’s death.

Doors drummer John Densmore wrote an auto-biographical book called
Riders On The Storm” about his life with Jim Morrison and The Doors.
