today’s tunes: new order – leave me alone

On a thousand islands in the sea
I see a thousand people just like me
A hundred unions in the snow
I watch them walking, falling in a row

this is the powerful final track from New Order’s 2nd album “Power, Corruption & Lies” released in 1983.

today’s tunes: Nick Cave – Galleon Ship

settling into the weekend with the fantastic new album Idiot Prayer – Nick Cave Alone at Alexandra Palace

If I could sail a galleon ship
A long, lonely rider across the sky
Seek out mysteries while you sleep
And treasures money cannot buy

I’ve posted this same song before – but a different version.

today’s tunes: will there be enough wind

a groovy tune from Jack White and the Dead Weather:

When I said sail,
Will there be enough wind?
Cool water
Oh cool wind

today’s tunes: tunes for the Tillerman

tunes for the Tillerman?

or maybe tea for the Tillerman instead?

the D’yer Mak’er

saw this photo posted on the Dinghy Shop Instagram account and had to wonder:

how can this boat builder not be called the D’yer Mak’er?

When I read the letter you sent me, it made me mad mad mad
When I read the news that it brought me, it made me sad sad sad
But I still love you so
And I can’t let you go
I love you
Oh, baby I love you, oh

today’s tunes: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds “Galleon Ship”

for today’s tunes, a selection from the latest album “Ghosteen” from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

For we are not alone, it seems, so many riders in the sky
The winds of longing in their sails, searching for the other side

if you don’t know some of the back story about Nick Cave in recent years, look into it a little bit (his teenage son died in an accident in 2015).  you can feel the raw emotion in a lot of his songs on this album.

here’s an album review from Pitchfork that gives some background on it: https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/nick-cave-and-the-bad-seeds-ghosteen/
