Song of the Week 30-2009: The Legends – Turn Away

  PLAY: The Legends – Turn Away

FREE music from Katie Herzig

 

I downloaded music by Katie Herzig for FREE in exchange for recommending it to 5 friends who I thought would like it.  You can sample and download it too by going here:

We are ugly but we have the music …

My current addiction:

Chelsea Hotel No.2
Leonard Cohen 
(but for some reason I like Rufus Wainwright’s cover MUCH better!)
 
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
you were talking so brave and so sweet,
giving me head on the unmade bed,
while the limousines wait in the street.
Those were the reasons and that was New York,
we were running for the money and the flesh.
And that was called love for the workers in song
probably still is for those of them left.

Ah but you got away, didn’t you babe,
you just turned your back on the crowd,
you got away, I never once heard you say,
I need you, I don’t need you,
I need you, I don’t need you
and all of that jiving around.

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
you were famous, your heart was a legend.
You told me again you preferred handsome men
but for me you would make an exception.
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
you fixed yourself, you said, “Well never mind,
we are ugly but we have the music.”

And then you got away, didn’t you babe…

I don’t mean to suggest that I loved you the best,
I can’t keep track of each fallen robin.
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
that’s all, I don’t even think of you that often.

Krypteria – Liberatio (video)

This was a benefit song for the victims of the tsunami in Asia in 2004. It cost 5 Euro and all the money went to Asia. I remember having bought the song and listened over and over but I haven’t been able to find a proper English translation so far. It is sung in Latin and somehow Latin seems to me the appropriate language for this song…

I never watched the video until yesterday, I did not even know that video existed.

Sad memories ….
