Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know

“Somebody That I Used To Know”

 

[Gotye:]

Now and then I think of when we were together

Like when you said you felt so happy you could die

Told myself that you were right for me

But felt so lonely in your company

But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness

Like resignation to the end, always the end

So when we found that we could not make sense

Well you said that we would still be friends

But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off

Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing

And I don’t even need your love

But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough

No you didn’t have to stoop so low

Have your friends collect your records and then change your number

I guess that I don’t need that though

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

[Kimbra:]

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over

But had me believing it was always something that I’d done

But I don’t wanna live that way

Reading into every word you say

You said that you could let it go

And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

[Gotye:]

But you didn’t have to cut me off

Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing

And I don’t even need your love

But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough

No you didn’t have to stoop so low

Have your friends collect your records and then change your number

I guess that I don’t need that though

Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

[x2]

Somebody

(I used to know)

Somebody

(Now you’re just somebody that I used to know)

(I used to know)

(That I used to know)

(I used to know)

Somebody

Franz Ferdinand – Love Illumination

Love Illumination”

When you’re happy from a dream

Is it hard to work out what is real

Is the real over there

More vivid than here ever feels

We could love, we could love you

If you need somebody to love you

While you’re looking for somebody to love

[Chorus:]

Sweet love illumination

Sweet, sweet love elevation

Outside, fresh other side

But inside love, you will be alright

Sweet love illumination

Sweet, sweet love celebration

Got covered, reason term

But it’ll bring you up

You will be alright

It’s a black pool, bright light

Brighter than the light in your home

Well, you want to be loved

But nobody else seems to know

We could love, we could love you

If you need somebody to love you

While you’re looking for somebody to love

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]

We could love, we could love you

If you need somebody to love you

While you’re looking for somebody to love

We’re all looking for somebody

We’re all looking for somebody to love

[Chorus]

Franz Ferdinand are a Scottish rock band formed in 2002 and based in Glasgow. The band is composed of Alex Kapranos (lead vocals and guitar, keyboard), Bob Hardy (bass guitar), Nick McCarthy (rhythm guitar, keyboards and backing vocals), and Paul Thomson (drums, percussion and backing vocals). The band has been nominated for several Grammy Awards. They have received two Brit Awards—winning one for Best British Group, and have won an NME Award. With their four studio albums, the band sold over three million albums worldwide in 2009.

To date, the band have released four studio albums: Franz Ferdinand (2004), You Could Have It So Much Better (2005), Tonight: Franz Ferdinand (2009) and Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action (2013). In 2015, the band released a studio album alongside Sparks as the supergroup FFS, titled FFS. The band has also released several extended plays, numerous singles, a remix album of Tonight: Franz Ferdinand entitled Blood, and a DVD titled Franz Ferdinand.

Formation and Darts of Pleasure (2002–03)

Main article: Darts of Pleasure

The members of Franz Ferdinand played in various bands during the 1990s, including The Karelia, Yummy Fur, 10p Invaders, and Embryo. Alex Kapranos and Paul Thomson met at a party and began a close friendship and played together in Yummy Fur, and subsequently teamed up to write songs. Around the same time, Kapranos taught his friend, Bob Hardy, how to play bass after being given a bass guitar by Mick Cooke of Belle & Sebastian. Kapranos met co-guitarist Nick McCarthy, who had returned to Scotland after studying jazz bass in Germany, in 2001. Franz Ferdinand’s longtime sound engineer is Michael Parker.

In May 2003 the band signed to Laurence Bell’s independent record label, Domino Records. The band had recorded an EP which they intended to release themselves; it was released by Domino as Darts of Pleasure in the latter part of 2003. The band won the “Phillip Hall Radar Award” at the NME Awards of 2004, announced in November 2003.

Franz Ferdinand and international breakthrough (2004)

The band performing in 2004

The band moved to Gula Studios in Malmö, Sweden, with Cardigans producer Tore Johansson to record their debut album. In January 2004 the single “Take Me Out”  reached No. 3 in the UK charts. The album,Franz Ferdinand, was released in early 2004, debuting at No. 3 in the UK Albums Chart in February 2004, and at No. 12 in the Australian album charts in April 2004. The album only reached the lowest levels of the Billboard 200 album charts in the US as of early 2004, but reached the top 5 of the indie rock chart and the Heatseeker chart for debut artists. After a couple of North American tours and heavy rotation of the “Take Me Out” video on MTV, the album eventually reached No. 32 on the Billboard 200 later in 2004, and sold over a million copies in the United States. Franz Ferdinand received a generally strong positive response from critics. NME rated it 9 out of 10, and said that the band was the latest in the line of art school rock bands featuring The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Roxy Music, the Sex Pistols, Wire, Travis, and Blur.

On 7 September 2004 the album was awarded the 2004 Mercury Music Prize. “Take Me Out” gained first place in the Australian Triple J Hottest 100 for 2004, winning more than twice the votes of the second-place entry, with This Fire and The Dark of the Matinee entering at No. 24 and No. 50 respectively. Franz Ferdinand won an Ivor Novello Award in 2004 and two BRIT Awards in 2005. The avant-garde music video for “Take Me Out” earned them aBreakthrough Video MTV Award. NME named Franz Ferdinand the best album of 2004, and placed it 38th on their 100 Best Albums of All Time list. The band performed “Take Me Out” as a live medley with Los Lonely Boys,Maroon 5, The Black Eyed Peas, and Gwen Stefani at the Grammy Awards of 2005, in which Franz Ferdinand was nominated for Best Alternative Album. “Take Me Out” was featured on the video games NHL 2005, Madden NFL 2005 and the breakthrough game Guitar Hero. The album has sold around 3.6 million copies worldwide.

Neil Young – Needle And The Damage Done

“Needle And The Damage Done”

I caught you knockin’

at my cellar door

I love you, baby,

can I have some more

Ooh, ooh, the damage done.

I hit the city and

I lost my band

I watched the needle

take another man

Gone, gone, the damage done.

I sing the song

because I love the man

I know that some

of you don’t understand

Milk-blood

to keep from running out.

I’ve seen the needle

and the damage done

A little part of it in everyone

But every junkie’s

like a settin’ sun.

The Needle and the Damage Done” is a song by Neil Young that describes the destruction caused by the heroin addiction of musicians he knew. Though not specifically about him, the song was inspired by the heroin addiction of his friend and Crazy Horse bandmate Danny Whitten. It previews the theme of the Tonight’s the Night album that reflects Young’s grief over the heroin overdose and death of both Whitten and Bruce Berry, a roadie for Young and Crazy Horse.

“The Needle and the Damage Done” first appeared on the Harvest album in 1972. Rather than re-recording it, he selected a live version from January 1971. It appeared on the compilation albums Decade and Greatest Hits. On the handwritten liner notes included in Decade, Young had this to say about the song: “I am not a preacher, but drugs killed a lot of great men.”

It appeared on the 2007 album Live at Massey Hall 1971. The album captured Young’s introduction of his song thus:

Ever since I left Canada, about five years ago or so… and moved down south… found out a lot of things that I didn’t know when I left. Some of ’em are good, and some of ’em are bad. Got to see a lot of great musicians before they happened… before they became famous… y’know, when they were just gigging. Five and six sets a night… things like that. And I got to see a lot of, um, great musicians who nobody ever got to see. For one reason or another. But… strangely enough, the real good ones… that you never got to see was… ’cause of, ahhm, heroin. An’ that started happening over an’ over. Then it happened to someone that everyone knew about. So I just wrote a little song.

Neil Young – Old Man

“Old Man”

Old man look at my life,

I’m a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,

I’m a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,

Twenty four

and there’s so much more

Live alone in a paradise

That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost,

Give me things

that don’t get lost.

Like a coin that won’t get tossed

Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life

I’m a lot like you

I need someone to love me

the whole day through

Ah, one look in my eyes

and you can tell that’s true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes,

Run around the same old town.

Doesn’t mean that much to me

To mean that much to you.

I’ve been first and last

Look at how the time goes past.

But I’m all alone at last.

Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life

I’m a lot like you

I need someone to love me

the whole day through

Ah, one look in my eyes

and you can tell that’s true.

Old man look at my life,

I’m a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,

I’m a lot like you were.

“Old Man” is a song written and performed by Neil Young on his 1972 album Harvest. “Old Man” was released as a single on Reprise Records in the spring of 1972, and reached # 31 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the week ending June 3.The song was written for the caretaker of the Northern California Broken Arrow Ranch, which Young purchased for $350,000 in 1970.

The song compares a young man’s life to an old man’s and shows that the young man has, to some extent, the same needs as the old one. James Taylor played six-string banjo (tuned like a guitar) and sang on the song, and Linda Ronstadt also contributed vocals.[2] In the movie Heart of Gold, Young introduces the song as follows:

About that time when I wrote (“Heart of Gold“), and I was touring, I had also — just, you know, being a rich hippie for the first time — I had purchased a ranch, and I still live there today. And there was a couple living on it that were the caretakers, an old gentleman named Louis Avila and his wife Clara. And there was this old blue Jeep there, and Louis took me for a ride in this blue Jeep. He gets me up there on the top side of the place, and there’s this lake up there that fed all the pastures, and he says, “Well, tell me, how does a young man like yourself have enough money to buy a place like this?” And I said, “Well, just lucky, Louie, just real lucky.” And he said, “Well, that’s the darndest thing I ever heard.” And I wrote this song for him.

He tells a similar story when introducing the song at a February 23, 1971 performance broadcast by the BBC (in which he says that he purchased the ranch from “two lawyers”).

Neil Young ”Cowgirl In The Sand”

“Cowgirl In The Sand”

Hello cowgirl in the sand

Is this place

at your command

Can I stay here

for a while

Can I see your

sweet sweet smile

Old enough now

to change your name

When so many love you

is it the same?

It’s the woman in you

that makes you want

to play this game.

Hello ruby in the dust

Has your band

begun to rust

After all

the sin we’ve had

I was hopin’ that

we’d turn bad

Old enough now

to change your name

When so many love you

is it the same

It’s the woman in you

that makes you want

to play this game.

Hello woman of my dreams

This is not

the way it seems

Purple words

on a grey background

To be a woman

and to be turned down

Old enough now

to change your name

When so many love you

is it the same

It’s the woman in you

that makes you want

to play this game.

Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) is a folk rock supergroup made up of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash. They are known as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (CSNY) when joined by occasional fourth memberNeil Young. They are noted for their intricate vocal harmonies, often tumultuous interpersonal relationships, political activism, and lasting influence on US music and culture. All four members of CSNY have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, though Young’s inductions were for work not involving the group.

Formation[edit]

Prior to the formation of CSN, each member of the band had belonged to another prominent group. David Crosby played guitar, sang and wrote songs with the Byrds; Stephen Stills had been a guitarist, keyboardist, vocalist and songwriter in the band Buffalo Springfield(which also featured Neil Young); and Graham Nash had been a guitarist, singer and songwriter with the Hollies.

Due to internal friction, Crosby was dismissed from The Byrds in late 1967. By early 1968, Buffalo Springfield had disintegrated, and after aiding in putting together the band’s final album, Stills was unemployed. He and Crosby began meeting informally and jamming. The result of one encounter in Florida on Crosby’s schooner was the song “Wooden Ships“, composed in collaboration with another guest, Jefferson Airplane‘s Paul Kantner.

Graham Nash had been introduced to Crosby when the Byrds had toured the United Kingdom in 1966, and when the Hollies ventured to California in 1968, Nash resumed his acquaintance with him. At a party in July 1968 at Joni Mitchell‘s house, Nash asked Stills and Crosby to repeat their performance of a new song by Stills, “You Don’t Have To Cry”, with Nash improvising a third part harmony. The vocals jelled, and the three realized that they had a unique vocal chemistry.

Creatively frustrated with the Hollies, Nash decided to quit the band and work with Crosby and Stills. After failing an audition with the BeatlesApple Records, they were signed to Atlantic Records by Ahmet Ertegün, who had been a fan of Buffalo Springfield and was disappointed by that band’s demise. From the outset, given their previous experiences, the trio decided not to be locked into a group structure. They used their surnames as identification to ensure independence and a guarantee that the band could not continue without one of them, unlike both the Byrds and the Hollies. They picked up a management team in Elliot Roberts and David Geffen, who got them signed to Atlantic and would help to consolidate clout for the group in the industry. Roberts kept the band focused and dealt with egos, while Geffen handled the business deals, since, in Crosby’s words, they needed a shark and Geffen was it.

Stills was already signed to Atlantic Records through his Buffalo Springfield contract. Crosby had been released from his Byrds’ deal with Columbia, as he was considered to be unimportant and too difficult to work with. Nash, however, was still signed to Epic Recordsthrough the Hollies. Ertegun worked out a deal with Clive Davis to essentially trade Nash to Atlantic in exchange for Richie Furay (who was also signed to Atlantic from having been in Buffalo Springfield) and his new band Poco.

Phil Collins – Another day in paradise

Another Day In Paradise

She calls out to the man on the street

“Sir, can you help me?

It’s cold and I’ve nowhere to sleep,

Is there somewhere you can tell me?”

He walks on, doesn’t look back

He pretends he can’t hear her

Starts to whistle as he crosses the street

Seems embarrassed to be there

Oh think twice, it’s another day for

You and me in paradise

Oh think twice, it’s just another day for you,

You and me in paradise

She calls out to the man on the street

He can see she’s been crying

She’s got blisters on the soles of her feet

Can’t walk but she’s trying

Oh think twice…

Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do

Oh lord, there must be something you can say

You can tell from the lines on her face

You can see that she’s been there

Probably been moved on from every place

‘Cos she didn’t fit in there

Oh think twice…

Toto – Hold the Line

Toto is an American rock band formed in 1977 in Van Nuys in Los Angeles, California. The band’s current lineup consists of Joseph Williams (lead vocals), David Paich (keyboards, vocals), Steve Porcaro (keyboards), Steve Lukather (guitars, vocals), Leland Sklar (bass) and Shannon Forrest (drums). Toto is known for a musical style that combines elements of pop, rock, soul, funk, progressive rock, hard rock, R&B, blues, and jazz.

David Paich and Jeff Porcaro had played together as session musicians on several albums and decided to form a band. David Hungate, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro and Bobby Kimball were recruited before their first album release. The band enjoyed great commercial success in the late 1970s and 1980s, beginning with the band’s eponymous debut released in 1978. With the release of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful Toto IV(1982), Toto became one of the best-selling music groups of their era. They are best known for the Top 5 hits “Hold the Line”, “Rosanna”, and “Africa”. Several changes to the lineup have been made over the years. Hungate left in 1982 followed by Kimball in 1984 but rejoined the band in 1998 until 2008. Jeff Porcaro died in 1992 of a heart attack. Hungate rejoined Toto as a touring musician and later a band member. In 2008, Lukather announced his departure from the band, and the remaining band members later went their separate ways. In the summer of 2010, Toto reformed and went on a short European tour, with a new lineup, to benefit Mike Porcaro, who had been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and was no longer an active member of the band.

The band has released a total of 17 albums, and have sold over 40 million albums to date. The group was honored with several Grammy Awards and was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in 2009.
