Wouldn’t it be nice

11. april 2016

Wouldn’t it be nice if we were older?
Then we wouldn’t have to wait so long
And wouldn’t it be nice to live together
In the kind of world where we belong

You know it’s gonna make it that much better
When we can say goodnight and stay together

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could wake up
In the morning when the day is new?
And after having spent the day together
Hold each other close the whole night through

Happy times together we’ve been spending
I wish that every kiss was never ending
Wouldn’t it be nice?

Maybe if we think, and wish, and hope, and pray, it might come true
Baby, then there wouldn’t be a single thing we couldn’t do
We could be married
And then we’d be happy

(Sleep tight oh baby goodnight
Ooh baby sleep tight oh baby)

Wouldn’t it be nice?
You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes it worse to live without it
But let’s talk about it
Wouldn’t it be nice?

Beach Boys’ ungdommeligt fremadskuende, drømmende sang får lov til at indlede min dag, hvor en lille ferie er slut og arbejdslivet kalder igen med ubønhørlig styrke. Ferien blev holdt, og der blev ikke nået det, jeg havde drømt om, så det er vel godt nok.

Wilco på Mountain Stage

10. april 2016

Og lidt koncert. Det mangfoldige Wilco spiller på Mountain Stage, og gør det akustisk. Her er både Woody Guthrie og David Bowie (Space Oddity). Wilcos bredde fornægtes ikke.

Når man opdager at man er et røvhul

10. april 2016

“I came to another turning point—the terrible opportunity that people are given in their lives. The day that they discover to the tips of their toes that they’re assholes. And you have to work on (yourself) from there, and decide what your values are – which parts of you are no longer really necessary. They belong to childhood’s end. Blue really was a turning point in a lot of ways…I don’t care too much for the second album I made {Clouds}. I like the first one; the first one’s honest. Blue is an honest album.”

Kinked! – Kinks Songs & Sessions 1964-1971

9. april 2016

The Kinks 50-års-jubilæum i 1914 blev fejret, men ikke med stort postyr. En antologi blev det dog til. Så derfor er det meget passende at det lille retroforlag Ace nu dokumenterer den indflydelse Ray Davies og Kinks havde på de kunstnere, der var og er deres samtidige. Det sker med opsamlingen Kinked! – Kinks Songs & Sessions 1964-1971, der byder på hele 26 fortolkninger af Ray Davies-sange – fra Dave Berry  over Peggy Lee til Thhe Uglys. En udgivelse, det er svært at komme uden om, hvis man er fan af Kinks og Davies.

Bruce Springsteen har en holdning – og det er godt

9. april 2016
As you, my fans, know I’m scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this Sunday. As we also know, North Carolina has just passed HB2, which the media are referring to as the “bathroom” law. HB2 — known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act — dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use. Just as important, the law also attacks the rights of LGBT citizens to sue when their human rights are violated in the workplace. No other group of North Carolinians faces such a burden. To my mind, it’s an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress. Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and overcome these negative developments. Taking all of this into account, I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters. As a result, and with deepest apologies to our dedicated fans in Greensboro, we have canceled our show scheduled for Sunday, April 10th. Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards.
