Grace Buford – Dancing in the Garden of Freedom (Remix by Doxent Zsigmond)

This one brings back good memories 🙂

Those were the times when I went with my friends to a Grace Buford (Cylindrian Rutabaga) live concert in SL. Nothing could beat this. We were promoting Grace’s music and she played our favourite originals. Here is my top favourite, my all-time favourite, remixed by my good friend Doxii. These days, neither Doxii nor Grace nor I frequent SL but we are always happy to catch one of Grace’s rare gigs online.

Dig the stones from the earth
and pile them on the side,
one by one,
Skilfully crafting a wall
to keep the outside on the outside.
Throw away all the the bitter fruit of yesterday
and fertilize the soul with forgiveness
so love can abide in this garden.

And I don’t want to go
from the place I found my soul.
See my freedom dance through the waves of green and gold.

Water the seeds with tears
from the guilt of all those silent years.
How fragile are the first shoots
as they reach for the warmth of the sun
so love will abide in this garden.

Happy Birthday, Bob!

I think I learned to play the guitar just to sing Dylan songs….
And here is my favourite ..and always has been

Bob Dylan – Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come followin’ you.

Home

“Home is whereever I’m with you.”

Jorge Narvaez and his adorable daughter Alexa perform a cover of Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros song, ‘Home’.

Martha Wainwright – Bloody Motherfucking Asshole (live)

Martha Wainwright’s BLOODY MOTHERFUCKING ASSHOLE is so amazing, I picked it as my first “Song of the Week” when I started this blog more than 2 years ago. I came across a pretty good live version on youtube yesterday and decided to give it some more attention.

Martha sings it with so much conviction, passion.
It’s pure emotion. Emotion is life.
And “life lives” as a friend of mine said the other day.

“I will not pretend
I will not put on a smile
I will not say I’m all right for you
When all I wanted was to be good
To do everything in truth…”
