It Is Not Growing Like A Tree by Ben Jonson

7:57 PM
It is not growing like a tree In bulk doth make Man better be; Or standing long an oak, three hundred year,To fall a log at last, dry, bald, and sere:A lily of a dayIs fairer far in May,Although it fall and die that night— It was the plant and flower of light.In small proportions we just beauties see;And in short measures life may perfect be. 

Percy Sledge - When A Man Loves A Woman (Live)

2:36 PM

I have been listening to this song for longer than I have been on this earth. 

However, listening now today, the meaning has transformed from it's past the present. This is partially because of the piece of triva, which I discovered thanks to a certain profile on Youtube from Dumpster0101 - who states the following :

"When a Man Loves a Woman - is a song recorded by Percy Sledge in 1966 at Norala Sound Studio in Sheffield, Alabama. It made number one on both the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B singles charts. It was listed 54th in the List of Rolling Stone magazine's 500 greatest songs of all time. The sidemen for this recording included Spooner Oldham, organ; Marlin Greene, guitar; Albert "Junior" Lowe, bass and Roger Hawkins, drums. The song is credited to Calvin Lewis and Andrew Wright, who played bass and keyboards with Sledge. However, the song was in fact written by Percy Sledge himself, but he gave it to Lewis and Wright.".

Apparently - before the recording session, the song had no title or lyrics. The session proceeded with the expectation that Sledge would produce them for the vocal takes. When it came time to record the vocals, Sledge improvised the lyrics with minimal pre-planning, using the melody as a guide for rhythm and phrasing.

The performance was so convincing that others working on the session assumed Sledge had the lyrics written down.

Knowing it was gifted, and improvised, makes it even more monumental. The older meaning and association, takes a lower position within this disk. 

The Building - Have to Forgive (Acoustic)

4:49 PM

In my current mood this song is quite striking

Go find your wife, tell her what you did. Dont try making this about something that it isn't.  Go find your wife and tell her your an idiot, tell her that it's not your fault and it's time to admit it.

You have to forgive. 

Go call your mum, tell her what you did, it's starting to make sense, now that you have kids. 

Go find your Dad, tell him you forgive him, you understand it's not his fault for the life that he  couldnt live. 

You have to forgive. 

Go find your girl, tell here your a kid, tell her your not capable of giving what needs given.

Go call your friends and tell them your a dick. 

You have to forgive.


There is a message here for many of us. At one stage or another. 

Begin The Beguine - Ella fitzgerald - And now when I hear people curse the chance that was wasted

4:50 PM

Today I am reminded that you never know what is around the corner.  In the last few hours I have had some heavy working of my lungs. I could feel a nightmare wrongness pervading every inch of my body, and now I live this nightmare.  My eyes heavy with tears, as I hope this is a dream. It's not, it is my reality. 

As my heart breaks at the loss of a grand opportunity. As I  return from the hub that was calle Fucar where it really all began in so many ways, and I arrive home in La Latina with a song locked in my head. 

Perhaps this song is here because of my old friend Tony from Tony's bar, close to Fucar, where so many magical moments began. I think it's just a mix of it all, what a way to end. 

The two lines that strike me today are - "And now when I hear people curse the chance that was wasted", and the harder to digest "Let the love that was once a fire remain an ember". 

I started a fire, and just as spark ignited the wind changed and blew it out. Today, I am able to sympathize with this song and sense the true Cole Porter essence. I cannot play Ella's version enough, she helps to calm my storm. 

When they begin the beguine
It brings back the sound of music so tender,
It brings back a night of tropical splendor,
It brings back a memory ever green.
I'm with you once more under the stars,
And down by the shore an orchestra's playing
And even the palms seem to be swaying
When they begin the beguine.
To live it again is past all endeavor,
Except when that tune clutches my heart,
And there we are, swearing to love forever,
And promising never, never to part.
What moments divine, what rapture serene,
Till clouds came along to disperse the joys we had tasted,
And now when I hear people curse the chance that was wasted,
I know but too well what they mean;
So don't let them begin the beguine
Let the love that was once a fire remain an ember;
Let it sleep like the dead desire I only remember
When they begin the beguine.
Oh yes, let them begin the beguine, make them play
Till the stars that were there before return above you,
Till you whisper to me once more,
Darling, I love you!
And we suddenly know What heaven we're in,
When they begin the beguine

Good night Marcela. X

3:04 PM

Nice day in the Mercado de Cebada in Madrid, Marisco feast, and a good chat in the park with my man Pablo. Then I was reminded of Benjamin Zephaniah, some of this early stuff was so raw. Anyway, this is another vibe. Chill as I work through the night.

Ryan Paris - La Dolce Vita (Dolce Modificare) TOTP 1983

4:17 AM

I feel like I can step inside this modified version. The audio is so close, I am at home, it´s the weekend, sun is shining in the window, and Ryan is bathing me as he always did, with the best in 80´s audio, I am splashed with sunshine. 

Listening to Ryan Paris is like digging out my old Lamborghini Countach.

 It sounds so fresh and at the same time absolutely 80´s retro bright, Ryan like the car a best friend, and one that has shared so many emotional moments and times. Beam some sunshine into your heart by employing Ryan Paris and this super version. A classic ride. Thanks for the tip James. 

We're walking like in a Dolce Vita This time we've got it right We're living like in a Dolce ...

Compton White - Track 2

3:34 AM

Reminds me of so many things. Spanning the Boards of Canada, early Daft Punk, Super Tramp, and back around spilling all over and into itself. The beat is addictive, melody playful. I will be keeping a wee eye out for Compton White.

Albion - Pyramids

3:09 PM

You got me burning like fire. Let´s go to Egypt and do it on the pyramid, let´s goto Egypt and do, do do it on the pyramid.

Great work out here. Transporting us to a place. You got me yearning for your body, as greedy as a Crocodile.
