Âlâ yâ Ayahâ Alsâkî Eder, kâsâ va nevâhâ kî âshk Âsân n(e?)mûd evel velî ûftâde meşkelhâ - or in English. "Oh cup bearer bring forth the glass and place it to my lips, the path of love, seemed easy at first, [but] what came was many hardships. My vowels may be off, my Persian is terrible,, I prefer ottoman poets.

Though the conclusion of that one is banging he keeps going on about roads and his beloved ending with, "I followed my path of love,, and now I am loathed, how can a secret remain so if from every tongue it drips? If his presence you seek, Hafiz,, then why do you mask yourself (in Persian he is the world eclipsed), stick to what you know,, let go of imaginary fancies (of love)

  4:28pm BH:

I think 4 of the singles from When We Fall Asleep have gotten play on the Alternative Station I listen to in the midwest. So naturally the one I liked the least hit #1. It's not an apples to apples comparison, but getting the 5th single to be the first #1 seems kinda impressive, some albums they just stop releasing singles after the 3rd or 4th one
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2020 Swag For Life Member 4:31pm tneeld:

That album is as close to Nevermind as I think we could get in the current era.

@Rob Kopp: I bought my mother-in-law a Mina double album for Christmas and made sure it featured "Se Telefonando" because, as you said, that song just grows and grows.

Aw man, Neil Peart (drummer from Rush) died. Part of my teenage years now gone.

@Parubi my phone is blowing up from Neil dying
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm Rob Kopp:

There was a beautiful version of Se telefonando by Mina on You Tube with Ennio Morricone's orchestra in the background (Rain Uno), but it's not there anymore

@Sheila: You might like Charlene Darling's video for "La Peau Bleutée": www.youtube.com...
Though it's probably more enjoyable to me because of all the familiar faces (the other members of her other project Rose Mercie make appearances)

Lenny was thee breakthrough Comedian
- busting out from polite format standup to everything we know about it today !
& of course he paid the price for it - ending up saying 'I am not a Comedian - I am Lenny Bruce' - as it became about his legal battle with Authority & Society.
How much Relevance do you want with your Comedy ?
...Also - a lot of it is recorded poorly - like Jazz or Garage / Punk that should be represented better...
  5:03pm Jett:

@RobKopp Do you also like "Chi Mai" by Milva?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm Rob Kopp:

@Jett: No. I will look for it
  5:05pm Mister Ease:

2 deeply insightful currently active comedians, very much in the tradition of people like George Carlin, Bill Hicks & Lenny Bruce just came to mind: Jimmy Dore & Lee Camp. One of the fascinating things about both of them is that, in addition to being comedians, they are both investigative journalists who are fiercely critical of the financial and military elites. That's why Google manipulates their algorithms to make it harder to find people like that.
  5:05pm William Main:

Dear Shelia:  You should listen to Lord Buckley, an important precursor in philosophical stand up comedy. Try the Nazz and Jonah and the Whale (both on youtube).

Jonathan Pie does great videos - the conceit he is a Brit Reporter - & when the camera goes off he says what he really thinks...

@djsheilab Do you have the version of Lola Flores doing "La Luna Y El Toro" with the castanets. Can't find that anywhere?

So true, @JohnEBG, and great archives.

Always thot of Peart as the Opposite of Keith Moon on some kind of spectrum: Technique over Expression.
But what Technique. Many Drummers idolized him.
I don't know but get the impression he was a good fellow...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Rob Kopp:

@Jett: I HAVE downloaded that clip. Only problem (I just found out): It was in iTunes and I updated iTunes to Music and now all my clips are gone! Will have to find out where Apple has put them.

Anything Colin Quinn does is quite entertaining. He knows his world history, and somehow makes them all sound like a couple guys on the corner.

Oh God, another opportunity for Rush fans to yap about their band ... Sorry though about Peart, RIP.

@Jett: I prefer Mina over Milva, but Morricone's orchestra is always great. In Holland we have about the same. Records with Bert Paige Orchestra have something special.

Back after the commute! Still sounding great.

@mariano, ParUbi, yeah, I'm sad about Neil Peart, definitely. Going to put some Rush on after SBB ... (and Stashu ...) ...
  5:24pm Jett:

@RobKopp, Lola Flores always manages to put her heart into her performances. I will check out that particular clip. She was amazing.
  5:25pm michael z:

And now some familiar ones. This set is a testament to Sophisticated Boom Boom being the greatest radio show since John Peel’s Too Gear (that dates me).

Michael Z - dates me too, but they were great days and great shows - and SheilaB is carrying the torch.
