My song of the moment requires some explanation.  See, it's a guilty pleasure song.  It's a song that's unbelievably catchy and one I seem to listen to all the freakin' time, but I feel bad for doing so.  The vocal melodies/harmonies and (insipid) lyrics, especially the chorus, are something I would expect in a song by N'SYNC or somesuch corporate bubblegum boy pop group.  This is NOT a song I would expect from a band of the caliber of the one performing it, but it does showcase a very important moment in the band's professional history, and their grapple with music business politics is evident in this compromising number.  I feel so bad for enjoying this song as much as I do and listening to it all the time, so I at least try to make up for it by listening to other, more "better" songs from their catalog.

After all that, you're probably wondering what my song of the moment is.  Well, if you didn't figure it out already, it's "You Not Me" by Dream Theater.  

Tell me there aren't lyrics that a group like N'SYNC would sing:

Being round you is driving me crazy
Watching you run is making me lazy
You're trying to buy a place in my head
Telling me lines I've already read
Speaking my name to try to confuse me
Say it again you're starting to lose me

That's alright I'm okay
It happens every single day
It's all the same
But I'm not blind

It's all about you not me
It's all about the things
That you're expecting me to be
There's not enough time to live
And all that you're expecting me to give

It's all about you not me
It's all about you not me

You're building my prison brick by brick
Eating your words is making me sick
You get what you want
Cause nothing is sacred
You're reading my mind
And leaving me naked
You say I gotta give before I receive it
One of these days I'll believe it.

It's all about you not me
It's all about the things
That you're expecting me to be
There's not enough time to live
And all that you're expecting me to give

It's all about you not me
It's all about you not me


I can't stand Desmond Child.  When he writes songs for artists, he's basically using them as puppets for his whims.  He doesn't create songs that truly capture the essence of that particular group.  With "You Not Me" he basically made Dream Theater perform an N'SYNC song.  But damn if it isn't ridiculously catchy.

My song of the moment was adapted for a high school one act play that competed against us. Both their school and our school got to the States section of the competition, and we all agreed that if we lost, we'd be happy if we lost to them. Unfortunately, we didn't loose to them. We lost to a pretentious 30 minutes with a garbled message and robot-dancing to The Cars and a boring comedy play that must have won because it had two people doing a bazillion costume changes that confused a lot in the audience. Damn. We did a cutting of Danton's Death, the other school brilliantly performed a story of two cowboys dealing with the stereotypes of their status and the reality of it. Fuck States. :P

Anyway, the song used in that play is my song of the moment because it's freaking good and it's the only Decemberists song I like. And I happen to love it.

My song of the moment is "The Soldering Life" by The Decemberists.

Ambling madly all over the town
The call to arms, you're likened to a whisper
I liken to a radio
You were a brick bag a bowery tuff, so rough
They called you from a cartoon…
Pulled out of your pantaloons

But You
My brother in arms
I'd rather I'd lose my limbs
Than let you come to harm

But You
My bombazine doll
The bullets may singe your skin
And the mortars may fall

But I
I never felt so much life
Than tonight
Huddled in the trenches
Gazing on the battle field
Our rifles blaze away
We blaze away

Corporal Bradley of regiment five
And proud array standing by the bathing
Soldiers and the stevedores
We laid on the mattress and tumbled to sleep
Our eyes align, swaddled in our civies
Cradled in our dungarees

But You
My brother in arms
I'd rather I'd lose my limbs
Than let you come to harm

But You
My bombazine doll
The bullets may singe your skin
And the mortars may fall

But I
I never felt so much life
Than tonight
Huddled in the trenches
Gazing on the battle field
Our rifles blaze away
We blaze away
We blaze away
We blaze away

I've always liked Colin Meloy's lyrics, but his voice gives me a headache. This may sound strange, as Destroyer is one of my favorite bands, but at least Dan Bejar doesn't monotone his nasal voice and blame it on the production. I hate you, Meloy.

Whenever I play Castlevania, I get in the mood for really bad Visuel Kei. For that reason, my current song of the moment is "au revoir" by Malice Mizer.

Yes - Close to the Edge

I found a really cool in-depth interpretation to the lyrics of this incredible song.

Holy shit, I am still reading that write up, but it's fucking great, Nemmet.  Ten gold stars for posting something interesting to make me think today, sir.

Song of the monent for me is Skyclad's cover of Judas Priest's Dreamer Deceiver.

Damn Desmond Child! It is an oddly catchy song though, although I do normally skip it.

My song of the moment is:

Pink Floyd - Sheep

Agalloch - Kneel to the Cross


Summer is a-coming...  Arise...  Arise...
Summer is a-coming...  Arise...  Arise...
Summer is a-coming...  Arise...  Arise...
Summer is a-coming...  Arise...  Arise...

Give us our bread and bury our dead
And kneel to the cross on the wall
Whether burnt at the stake or drunk at the wake
Just kneel to the cross on the wall
We've original sin, but we might just get in
If we beg to the cross on the wall
It's rattle your neighbours and rattle your sabre
But kneel to that cross on the wall

See the roof fall, hear the bells crash
As flesh and bone turns to ash
Tried to conquer the sun with a Christian frost
The corpses' stench beneath the cross

And give them gold and they'll save your soul
And kneel to the cross on the wall
And hail to the boss of the great unwashed
And kneel to the cross on the wall
They wail and weep, the march of the sheep
As they go to the cross on the wall
And it's ever so wrong to dare to be strong
So kneel to the cross on the wall

See the roof fall, hear the bells crash
As flesh and bone turns to ash
Tried to conquer the sun, with a Christian frost
The corpses' stench beneath the cross
And it's ever so wrong to dare to be strong
And it's ever so wrong to dare to be strong
But Summer is a-coming and arise...  Arise...
But Summer is a-coming and arise...  Arise...

Arise

MC Lars-Hot Topic is Not Punk Rock

MC Lars is definitely not Lars Frederickson. He go to MClars.com to learn more about him. He is just a recent college grad who makes music on his laptop.

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Derek Sherinian - Trojan Horse.

And regarding his Inerta album. We knew it was supposed to be bad, but I assumed it meant "bad" as in the reviewers don't like game music-type wank. But wow. Even just the title track is a mish-mash of unmelodic crap. :|

But I normally put on Dream Theater - Trial of Tears after listening to him. Just because of his major widdling in the song. :P
