Hey, kit. Was headed outta da town on Friday.

According to Wiki.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fearless_%28song%29

Near the beginning and at the end of the song, a field recording of fans in Liverpool's Kop singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" is superimposed over the music. This Rodgers and Hammerstein song became the anthem of Liverpool F.C. after Gerry & the Pacemakers had a number-one hit with their recording.

Regarding y'alls discussion in Meander, when I was younger, and found myself in near death situations (of which I was stupid enough to be in on several occasions), I don't recall so much sensing a fear of dying but I was overcome with a dread of not being able to live anymore. As I approach the big five-o... bah, don't wanna ruminate a whole lot on that at the moment. Cheers.

Pondy~~

  Blade Runner  so (still) a favorite of mine -- and Vangelis -- his music seems so dated and yet it has such a timeless quality -- I did find the info re: "Fearless" making the song just that much more perfect...

I are a big fan of Blade Runner myself, though I wasn't too impressed with the latest, greatest, new and improved director's cut. Perhaps I've seen the original director's cut too many times and found it to be as close to perfect sci-fi as necessary.

Still wondering why the Chad McKay of the Fearless Youtube merited an inclusion of the opening of Margaret Walker's For Malcolm X. Did a quick Google and came up with a BMX rider outta Australia and seeing that the host of that channel is into skateboarding there must be some connection. Not that big of a mystery for me to spend much time on it tho'.

   Yeah, not getting the/a connection with that either...?  BTW:  Are you saying that you prefer the version with Ford's voice-over?







I do...

No, no. I mean the original director's cut which eliminated the voice-over of the original release. The latest release, sans narration as well, contains some added scenes.  I'd like to se the narrated version again (been quite awhile), but I prefer the first director's cut.

Uh, what forum are we on?  Huh

Anyway, while I'm here hijacking the music forum, just got back from the video store with Southland Tales that barton was talking about a couple o' weeks ago. I just might head over back to the movie forum and report on it later. Also saw The Taking of Pelham 123 last week (barton's sig burned in my brain) never having seen it before.

Enough, back to the tunes... sort of.

Burnzy,

In case you care, Ray Davies plays the guest DJ on All Songs Considered: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=89149374

Nice show.

Burnzy, glad you liked.  I had no idea that his last name was pronounced ‘Davis’. 

Dzimas, I was thinking of you this morning.  We just got VH1 Classic, and that glorious waste of time played the video of ELO’s Last Train to London from their Discovery album.  I used to be into them, and I remember some really strong songs on that disc, but it also had a lot of disco influence – and just as disco was falling into disfavor. 

Anybody listen to music podcasts?  I’m a fan of the ones I can find.  I pointed out the All Songs Considered podcast, which I love.  I’ve picked up a lot of new song ideas from them.  In case anybody’s interested, here’s the link to the weekly show as well as the podcast: http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=37&agg=1

I just downloaded this podcast and was pleasantly surprised:  http://www.indiepopradio.co.uk/  Good if you like, well, indie pop.

This podcast is good for those who like music from all over: http://www.songlines.co.uk/  One quibble: too much talking and not enough sampling of music. 

This site has some decent mod-related music: http://modradiouk.podomatic.com/?badge=1 

I’ve mentioned this one before, but of the WFMU podcasts listed here http://wfmu.org/podcast , I listen to the Downtown Soulville one a lot. 

Anybody have music podcast ideas?

Other than just waiting for you to recommend one (or two or three or four)? You got all the bases covered, my man.

And, uh... Ray pronounces his name just like you think it would be pronounced. It's that Brit accent that makes it sound like 'Davis'. Cool
