Comments Off on Alex Chilton’s ‘Boogie Shoes: Live on Beale Street 1999’ a Treasured Soulful Blues Classic


















By AVA LIVERSIDGE

For the Boogie Shoes: Live on Beale Street 1999 live record, Alex Chilton returned home to the City of Blues in both sound and state. When you think of Alex Chilton, you think progenitor of the quintessential 70s power-pop outfit, Big Star. 

For the Beale Street side of Chilton, you must look back further, to his soul-blues-tinged hybrid Box Tops days where you get the slightest glimpse of the direction this vibrant live performance takes Chilton. On Boogie Shoes: Live on Beale Street, Chilton went further than just a tinge of soul or a tinge of blues or a tinge of anything; he really did put on his Boogie Shoes. 

Previously unissued and finally released by Los-Angeles based Omnivore Records, the self-appointed Chilton archivists, this performance rests on the obscure end of legendary. The Beale Street show had no set list, fluidity and ease characterize the performance. It’s upbeat and is more reminiscent of a 45 minute jam session than a calculated performance. The covers run the gamut as Chilton and the Hi Rhythm Section weave in and out of a variety of renditions, cutting them short, driving forward. Chilton’s joy is palpable. 

This fluidity could very well be accredited to the last-minute nature of the festival. Named “Fredstock”, in honor of saxophonist and co-founder of Beale Street Music Festival, Fred Ford, and his battle with cancer, the festival came to fruition in just a few weeks at the hand of David Less.

When Chilton agreed to the performance but told Less he had no musicians to play with in Memphis (something no one has ever said in Memphis, ever), Less suggested the Hi Rhythm Section. This is not your average backing band. This is the band behind the instrumentals for artists including Ike & Tina Turner, Al Green, and Otis Clay. Chilton reported back to Less: “That will work.” And so it goes.

Chilton seemed to be reverent of the town he was in, Memphis, and who the benefit was honoring during his set. He blazes through the canon with ease- Otis Clay, The Supremes, Jimmy Reed, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, and, of course, his opener and featured single, KC & the Sunshine Band’s “Boogie Shoes,” A track that aptly sets the tone for the set as all four-and-a-half minutes drip with a bright swing.

What this performance does best and what Chilton should most be commended for is the mistake he didn’t make. Many performers feel empowered to cut off the live band whenever they see fit, especially if the set list is improvised and potential dissonance is lurking. Chilton doesn’t interrupt. He is well aware of both his limitations as a lone vocalist and, more so, the Hi Rhythm Section’s capabilities. He lets the horn section (Ronald Smothers, Jim Spake, and Scott Thomposon) wail for as long as needed to fill a brassy bath. The rolling percussive breaks drive the ending of most tracks. The relationship between vocals and instrumentals is democratic and the sound is that much better, the show that much more alive.

Boogie Shoes: Live on Beale Street is a ten track conglomerate of high-energy, succinct funk, blues, rock, and pop cuts. On Little Richard’s “Lucille”, you can hear Chilton calling out to the tenor, then baritone saxophones to take their solos. The set is loose, but smart.

It’s not the pop rock that delivered Chilton his cult following, but it certainly works as testimony to Chilton’s Memphis blood and tribute to Fred Ford’s legacy.

Kodak Black Fans Disturbed By “Murder” Tattoo On His Eyelid

Kodak Black left some fans disturbed with his latest tattoo.

The Pompano Beach rapper has long been associated with the word “unorthodox,” and he continues on that path with his latest move to rock social media. The latest update on the “Testimony” rapper is a new modification to his physical appearance. Tattoos have become a mainstay in the world of hip hop. The likes of Drake have used this ancient form of body art as a way to cement the important people in his life.

Meanwhile, Lil Uzi Vert, Dave East, and others have built on that idea to create truly amazing works of art. There is also room for stranger ‘things,’ and that is where Kodak’s new ink falls.

On Sunday, May 9, a video surfaced on social media showing off Kodak Black’s newest tattoo on the most abnormal place, his eyelids. The tattoo, done in bold red ink, reads, “Red Rum”- ‘Red’ on one eyelid and ‘Rum’ on the other. Notably, RedRum spelled backward is ‘Murder.’ As such, a quick glance in the mirror will reveal the word Murder. The tattoo was done by @ace_no_buggy, who filmed his latest work and posted a video for fans to see.

The new ominous tattoo is an addition to his extensive collection. Kodak Black, whose real name is Bill Kapri, was already rocking a number of face and neck tattoos. On his cheek, the word “WAR” is boldly inked and in the middle of his forehead is a bird that covers up a cross, among others. The new tattoo stands out as the brightest but also looks like the most painful.

Kodak Black got a new tattoo on his eyes ? How’s it looking?? pic.twitter.com/BS02SOoGXj

While many fans are quick to note that he is just how he is, others say Kodak Black just seems to enjoy being the talk of the town. This new development comes just over a week after Kodak received his 18-month probation and a 10-year suspended prison sentence for assault and battery. The 23-year-old rapper pleaded guilty to charges of first-degree assault and battery in a South Carolina court where he offered an apology to the victim in court and wished her “the best in her life.”

Following the courtroom proceedings, the “Wake Up In The Sky” rapper took to Twitter to deny the accusations. “My heart goes out to all the girls out here getting raped and sh*t. FORREAL, But I Ain’t Did That Sh*t,” he wrote.

The rapper had also announced that amid this controversy, he would be delaying the release of an album he has been working on.

It looks like Kodak has permanent eyeshadow with his new tattoos

Nicki Minaj Announces New Music After Ending Social Media Hiatus

Nicki Minaj has announced her return to music after ending her hiatus from social media.

The wife and mother is emerging months after the birth of her son and also the death of her father recently. On Monday, fans went into a frenzy after the Queen of the Barbz posted two images on her social media showing her decked up in Chanel from head to toe.

The two shots show Nicki Minaj partially nude wearing custom pink Chanel crocs, accent glasses with various Chanel props around her, including pink fluffy heart-shaped pillows that she covers herself with.

The post is only captioned “F R I D A Y” with the peace out sign. Fans shared their excitement at her return and especially since this would be the first new music that she’s releasing since 2018 when she launched her studio album Queen.

Last year November, she released “What That Speed Bout” with YoungBoy Never Broke Again, and before that, she released “Whole Lotta Choppas (Remix)” and joined ASAP Ferg and MadeinTYO for “Move Ya Hips.”

Nicki Minaj

The rapper welcomed her firstborn in September and thereafter took a hiatus from the music scene. At a time she was expected to return, news broke that her father was killed in a hit-and-run accident. Fans, however, kept her music alive and have even caused her to have new records with her existing songs.

Days ago, the Barbz came together on Twitter in their usual trending fashion, and they promoted Nicki Minaj’s song “LLC.”

Apparently, the Barbz intended to show fan love to the Queen in an effort to get her to release new music! On Friday, the song became the No. 1 trending hashtag in the United States and worldwide with over 133,000 tweets. Artists like Doja Cat got in the fun as she reposted on her Instagram storytelling fans to stream the song.

“LLC,” is from the album Queen, and after the song was streaming, it became Minaj’s best performing single for 2021 so far. The song entered the Top 40 of the iTunes US Chart since being released in 2018.

Chris Brown’s Birthday Bash Shut Down By LAPD

Chris Brown has never been accused of not knowing how to party.

The superstar singer celebrated his 32nd birthday this week with a huge event at his house on Wednesday, which also happened to be Cinco de Mayo. The party, which has held in Tarzana, CA, reportedly became so large and loud that the neighbors called the police, who escorted guests out of the area.

According to TMZ, the night saw around 500 attendees, and ABC7 reported that neighbors were complaining about the 300 cars parked outside Brown’s home. After speaking with Chris Brown’s onsite security team, the police asked that the music be turned down and partygoers asked to leave.

Of course, getting that many people out of a neighborhood at 2am is a feat of its own. Police cars reportedly helped direct traffic and multiple helicopters recorded the situation from above. The cops involved did report that guests were very cooperative when leaving the party.

Chris Brown has yet to speak out about the incident or the party, but video clips shared online show the singer enjoying his celebration and turning up to some of his own hits. Considering his history, it seems unlikely that Brown is very rattled by the experience.

In 2019, cops were called to the same home for a similar reason, except this time, it wasn’t a party that drew far too many people to Chris’ house. Brown took to Instagram to share his home address with his millions of followers, announcing that he was hosting a yard sale where fans could score some of his pre-worn designer items at a discounted price.

Chris Brown intended to donate a portion of the proceeds to charity, but LAPD quickly tried to shut the event down by claiming the singer needed a permit to sell out of his house. However, Chris’ legal team fought for his right to have the yard sale, which continued as planned while police patrolled the area out of fear that crowds would become too large. Clearly, Chris still isn’t concerned with the impact of large crowds, even in the middle of a pandemic.

Bob Seger – Turn The Page (Studio) Lyrics

[Verse 1]
On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha
You can listen to the engine moanin’ out his one note song
You can think about the woman or the girl you knew the night before
But your thoughts will soon be wanderin’ the way they always do
When you’re ridin’ sixteen hours and there’s nothin’ there to do
And you don’t feel much like ridin’, you just wish the trip was through

[Chorus]
Here I am
On the road again
There I am
On the stage
Here I go
Playin’ star again
There I go
Turn the page

[Verse 2]
Well you walk into a restaurant all strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you as you’re shakin’ off the cold
You pretend it doesn’t bother you but you just want to explode
Most times you can’t hear ’em talk, other times you can
All the same old cliches, “Is it woman, is it man?”
And you always seem outnumbered so you don’t dare make a stand

[Chorus]
Oh, here I am
On the road again
There I am
On the stage, yeah
Here I go
Playin’ star again
There I go
Turn the page

[Verse 3]
Out there in the spotlight you’re a million miles away
Every ounce of energy you try to give away
As the sweat pours out your body like the music that you play
Later in the evening as you lie awake in bed
With the echoes from the amplifiers ringin’ in your head
You smoke the day’s last cigarette, rememberin’ what she said

[Chorus]
Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Ah, here I go
Playin’ star again
There I go
Turn the page
Here I am
On the road again
There I am
On the stage, yeah
Here I go
Playin’ star again
There I go
There I go

Phillip Phillips – Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song) Lyrics

Anthony works in the grocery store
Savin’ his pennies for someday
Mama Leone left a note on the door
She said, “Sonny, move out to the country”

Workin’ too hard can give you a heart attack
You oughta know by now
Who needs a house out in Hackensack?
Is that all you get for your money?

And it seems such a waste of time
If that’s what it’s all about
Mama, if that’s movin’ up
Then I’m movin’ out

I’m movin’ out

Sergeant O’Leary is walkin’ the beat
At night he becomes a bartender
He works at Mister Cacciatore’s down on Sullivan Street
Across from the medical center

And he’s tradin’ in his Chevy for a Cadillac
Oh, you oughta know by now
And if he can’t drive with a broken back
At least he can polish the fenders

Oh, and it seems such a waste of time
If that’s what it’s all about
Mama, if that’s movin’ up
Then I’m movin’ out

I’m movin’ out

You should never argue with a crazy mi-i-ind
You oughta know by now
You can pay Uncle Sam with the overtime
Is that all you get for your money?

And if that’s what you have in mind
If that’s what you’re all about
Good luck movin’, ohhh
Yeah, ’cause I’m movin’ out

I’m movin’ out
I’m movin’ out

Britney Spears – Feet On The Ground Lyrics

Things were not progressing
Don’t pretend you didn’t know
All the bullshit
They were turnin’ my life into a show
Took some time to heal the wounds i had to improvise
Pay no mind to all the rumours just a buncha lies

Fall back fall back
Burnin up all my bridges
Fall back fall back
Makin the wrong decision
Fall back fall back
Im in a new transition
Takin back the reins again
Ive changed my ways

I can tell you that i feel my feet on the ground again
You can see im firmly standing feet on the ground again
I was lost a while but my feet on the ground again
You can’t bring me down i got my feet on the ground again

Things were gettin crazy
So i had to strategize
Look at me i’m changin’ and its right before your eyes
No, its not fine
This is my pride
Lost – to my life
I’ve had enough of it

Fall back fall back
Burnin’ up all my bridges
Fall back fall back
Makin the wrong decision
Fall back fall back
I’m in a new transition
Takin back the reins again
I’ve changed my ways

I can tell you that i feel my feet on the ground again
You can see im firmly standing feet on the ground again
I was lost a while but my feet on the ground again
You can’t bring me down i got my feet on the ground again

All of this obsession, isn’t it a bit too much?
Can’t believe that some of you think i have lost my touch
Was a phase
I just have to
Rewind the days
Let me out
Come and set me free
You were waitin’ for the new me
Its complete

Fall back fall back
You were my inspiration
Fall back fall back
This is my dedication
I can tell you that i feel my feet on the ground again
You can see i’m firmly standing feet on the ground again
I was lost a while but my feet on the ground again
You can’t bring me down i got my feet on the ground again

Arijit Singh – Tum Hi Ho Lyrics

Hum tere bin ab reh nahi sakte,
Tere bina kya wajood mera?
Hum tere bin ab reh nahi sakte,
Tere bina kya wajood mera?
Tujh se juda agar ho jaayenge,
Toh khud se hi ho jaayenge juda.

Kyun ki tum hi ho
Ab tum hi ho,
Zindagi ab tum hi ho.
Chain bhi,
Mera dard bhi.
Meri aashiqui ab tum hi ho.

Tera mera rishta hai kaisa?
Ek pal door gawara nahi.
Tere liye har roz hain jeete;
Tujhko diya mera waqt sabhi.
Koi lamha mera na ho tere bina,
Har saans pe naam tera.

Kyun ki tum hi ho
Ab tum hi ho,
Zindagi ab tum hi ho.

Chain bhi,
Mera dard bhi.
Meri aashiqui ab tum hi ho.

Tum hi ho..
Tum hi ho..

Tere liye hi jiya main.
Khudko jo yun de diya hai.
Tere wafa ne mujhko sambhala;
Saare ghamon ko dil se nikala.
Tere saath mera hai naseeb juda,
Tujhe paake addhura na raha.
Mmm..

Kyun ki tum hi ho
Ab tum hi ho,
Zindagi ab tum hi ho.
Chain bhi,
Mera dard bhi.
Meri aashiqui ab tum hi ho.

Kyun ki tum hi ho
Ab tum hi ho,
Zindagi ab tum hi ho.
Chain bhi,
Mera dard bhi.
Meri aashiqui ab tum hi ho.

T-Pain Says Producers Deserve More Credit For Hits: “Y’all really just like the beats”

T-Pain says producers deserve way more credit for their work.

The 35-year-old rapper/producer is calling on music fans to show love to the correct musical maestros with his latest tweet. T-Pain wants listeners to venture beyond the sometimes incoherent lyrical delivery heard on many of his recent releases and give praises to the producers who craft the beats which power several of those modern hits.

“The producers are the ones that deserve all the clout,” he declared before explaining his stance, “because y’all really don’t be liking these songs, y’all really just like the beats. When you hear a certain producer’s tag you don’t give a f***k who’s on it because you know you gon like the beat. give them they flowers fr.”

The producers are the ones that deserve all the clout because y’all really don’t be liking these songs, y’all really just like the beats. When you hear a certain producer’s tag you don’t give a fuck who’s on it because you know you gon like the beat ????? give them they flowers fr

The “Bartender” singer, who is still active to this day, is armed with at least a decade and a half of experience in the industry, which makes him a perfect spokesperson for the pre-mumble rap era. T-Pain didn’t throw shades at any song or rapper in particular. Nonetheless, he was still forced to defend his assessment in a follow-up post a few hours later.

“Notice I said “y’all don’t be liking THESE songs” y’all know what f__kin songs I’m taking about. If I was talking about any other era I would’ve said “THOSE songs” we on the same page but y’all ain’t reading between. Feel me?.”

— T-Pain (@TPAIN) May 10, 2021

While it’s hard to pinpoint who exactly started the mumble-rap movement, many have credited Future with the deed through his 2012 track “Tony Montana.” The rapper has previously revealed that he was under the influence while recording the song and has slurred his words. The trend has been adopted by a host of new hip-hop talents all across the world, and his showing no signs of slowing down.

The breakout hit that was produced by Will A Fool not only earned Future a promising Drake collab but also a place in hip-hop history. Sadly, the name Will A Fool doesn’t get the same recognition as Future. Nearly a decade has passed since the release of “Tony Montana,” yet Pain’s beckoning of fans to provide producers with the same love they show rappers is still prevalent.

Hopefully, his latest tweet will result in the likes of JetsonMade, Metro Boomin, SethInTheKitchen, J. White Did It, Wheezy, Supah Mario, Brandon Finessin, Section 8, 30 Roc, Take a Daytrip, ChopsquadDJ, Earl on the Beat, Tay Keith, and a host of others being household names.

Do you think producers should get more credit for hit songs?

Teejay Taps Gyptian & Bremmy FZ – “Uptop Wine (Wine for Me)”

Teejay and Gyptian link up for a new party anthem.

Summer is on, so call up a friend! Unsure of just how to spend your time during the lockdown this summer? Teejay, Gyptian, and Bremmy FZ have teamed up for a laidback, melody-filled song and video which explains just how to ensure those hot summer days are filled with loads of fun.

The Uptop Boss and Gyptian make a luxurious house/villa their adult playground. The handful of natural-bodied females parading around the venue engage in everything from a game of pool to chillin’ by the pool. Island themes, button-downs, shorts, bikinis, and drinks flowing in abundance mark the order of the day, and the men behind the lends, David P, and director Angelo B capture every moment of it.

While summer is known for its numerous parties and outdoor events, that may not be the reality for Jamaica in 2021. The island, which is revered for its laidback attitude and musical offerings, has been experiencing islandwide curfews for more than a year as the deadly Covid-19 virus rages on. One thing that cannot be denied is the warm feeling you get whenever it is summertime. Teejay, Gyptian, and Bremmy FZ are searching for that and more from their female counterparts in this Towerhill Records Production.

Rapper J. Cole Inks Basketball Deal In Africa With Rwanda’s Patriots

J. Cole will finally live out his professional basketball dreams with the Rwanda Patriots BBC.

The North Carolina rapper reportedly signed with Rwanda’s national team and is slated to take part in the Basketball Africa League. According to SportsCenter, a source says the signing will be official on Thursday, which is when the announcement will be made. That’s just days before the Patriots are set to play the Nigeria River Hoopers on Sunday and one day before J. Cole drops his long-awaited album The Off-Season.

While he chose to pursue his music career and a great one at that, J. Cole has always had a passion for basketball. He played varsity for the Fayetteville Bulldogs for two years in high school and even tried out for the St. John’s University’s basketball team in college. However, the rapper opted to focus on his rap career back then, and he didn’t go to the second day of tryouts. J. Cole talked about his basketball dreams always taking a back seat to his rap music career and his intention to still pursue the sport professionally in a 2020 Player’s Tribune feature.

“When I fell in love with the craft at 13 years old, I tore the basketball posters off my wall and hung up pictures and lyrics of hip-hop greats to replace them,” said J. Cole. In the article titled “The Audacity,” which was penned by the rapper, he talked about his “career bucket list,” which included another album, as well as exploring his passion for basketball. “At 35 years old, I know that sounds crazy when said out loud, but I believe all of the best dreams do,” J. Cole wrote.

After the industry learned that Cole was trying to pursue an NBA contract, the rapper was invited to try out for the Detroit Pistons in August 2020. NBA executives would have already gotten a taste of Cole’s skills back in 2012 during the All-Star Celebrity Game on ESPN, where the rapper delivered a more than stellar performance, far outshining all the other participants.

Now that his next album, The Off-Season, is set to be released on Friday (May 14), everything seems to be aligning perfectly for the rapper to now focus on his basketball career. J. Cole will play three to six games for the Patriots in the African League, hopefully starting Sunday, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. “The rap star is in the four-day quarantine and the signing is expected to be official Thursday. Patriots open BAL action Sunday vs Nigeria River Hoopers 7 am EST live on ESPNews,” ESPN’s Marc J. Spears reported.

The Dreamville rapper said no mountain too high, and this week he will show just that. Are you excited about J. Cole’s new album and his next chapter?

Sources: American rap star J. Cole is signing a deal in the Basketball Africa League with Rwanda's Patriots B.B.C. J. Cole will play 3-to-6 games, the first of which on Sunday vs. Nigeria.

Mavado’s Son Dante Brooks Attorney Confident About Appeal, Eager To Get Transcripts

Will Mavado’s son, Dante Brooks, get a chance to appeal his life sentence for his charge of murder?

His lawyer, Peter Champagnie, believes that once he receives the transcript of Brooks’ trial that he will get an appeal date. He spoke with the Jamaica Observer about his optimism towards the case and why he believes they have a good shot at appealing the sentence.

Brooks, who is is just 18-years-old, was sentenced to life imprisonment in the Home Circuit Court on March 19. He will have to serve 22 years before he is eligible for parole. He was also sentenced to 15 years on illegal possession of firearm charge and 15 years on the arson charge. He is to serve the charges concurrently.

“The registry of the Court of Appeal has already communicated to me in writing to confirm my representation of Mr Brooks for the appeal,” he said.

He added that because of improved services where appeals are concerned, he is confident that Brooks will be given an appeal date in the near future.

“Given the much-improved rate in terms of timeline at which appeals are now being heard, it is my anticipation that as soon as the transcript from the trial is available a date will be given for the hearing of the matter,” he added.

Another man convicted, along with Dante Brooks, Andre Hinds, was also sentenced to life imprisonment and will have to serve 17 years before he is eligible for parole. He received the same 15 years on the illegal possession of firearm charge and 15 years on the arson charge. There is no word on whether or not he will also appeal his case.

Both men were found guilty on January 27 of the 2018 murder of Lorenzo Thomas in the St Andrew community of Cassava Piece. According to reports coming out of the case, Brooks and Hinds were among five men who entered a house and shot Thomas before pushing his father into another room. They also attempted to sever his head but stopped after the machete that was being used was not sharp enough. Prosecutors also stated that they poured gasoline on the house and body before setting the place on fire.

Burning Point – Blinded By The Darkness Lyrics

You try to burn the witches, from day to day you moralize
You cried the wolf but now it’s catching you
There are no more excuses, no guardian angels for the damned
You drink the poison from the cup of gold

All the towers falling down
Your crying can’t be heard no more
Your lies won’t set you free

Eyes open wide  you’re blinded by the darkness

Eyes open wide  you’re blinded by the darkness

With your own eyes you saw the signs
You read them all across the skies
None of them did stand for victory
The double-talking false attacks and the stabbing
Of the backs never got you where you wanted to go

Big Sugar – Girl Watcher Lyrics

Down time, feeling inclined
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind
Haven’t seen what I’m hoping to find
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind

I’ll stare until I start to go blind
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind
She arrives right on time

No, she’s fine at least from behind
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind
She says I’m wasting my time
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind
One thing weighs on my mind

Who do you dream about, baby?
Who do you dream about? Say me
Who do you dream about, baby?

And who do you love?

Who do you dream about, baby?
Who do you dream about? Say me
Who do you dream about, baby?
And who do you love?

Stop, one time, just one more time
I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t

Who do you dream about, baby?
Who do you dream about? Say me
Who do you dream about, baby?
Who do you dream about? Say me

Who do you dream about, baby?
And who do you love? Say me
Who do you dream about, baby?
And who do you love?
Who do you love? Who do you love?

Falco – Cadillac Hotel Lyrics

What in Himmel makes us going there
das Blau in ihren Blicken erinnert sehr,
an – ein Swimming-Pool im Winter
at Cadillac Hotel
tour – retour acting on l’amour, spielen das alte Spiel
der Schlange Kur – so nah
ihr hohes Ziel.
Denn die Zeichen stehen verändert
neuer Tendenzen – Konsequenz
extravaganz Hi-Tech-Hexen
and the pressure
and the pressure
is immens!
Chorus:
I’ ve been waiting at Cadillac Hotel
I’ ve been waiting
waiting for your love
I lost you
at Cadillac Hotel
I can’t find you
girl where are you now?

Cadillac Hotel
Neue Herrinnen warten nicht, dienen nicht,
neue Herrinnen geben sich, nehmen sich,
whatever they want
at Cadillac Hotel.
Und die Uhren stehen für uns bereit
bereit für den Kampf um unsere Zeit,
letzte Schattenspiele
at Cadillac Hotel.
Dann ruft die Domina-Connection
zur – Promotion
vom Nymphomanian Planquadrat
bis zum Single-Market
hatten wir alles
hatten wir alles
schon.

August Burns Red – Dangerous Lyrics

[Intro]
The end will come
The end will come

[Verse 1]
Some will say the end will come
But I know it’s never ending
Words give meaning to my thoughts
What gives meaning to this feeling?

[Pre-Chorus]
I know what I did. I know what I said
I know what I did. I know what I said

[Chorus]
It’s dangerous, so dangerous
I’ve made friends with a stranger. It’s endangering us
It’s dangerous, so dangerous
I’ve made friends with a stranger. It’s endangering us

[Bridge]
When what you love is taken away
You realize what you’re made of
You’ll have to find your way
You’ll have to scream and claw at the air
You strapped your pack to your back
And all the weight is yours to bear
The help we find is the hope we need

It’s the hand that guides us back
We can will ourselves to remember our word
But we all too quickly forget

[Verse 2]
Along the way I got lost
Now the way back home is overgrown
This isn’t an addictive thought
It’s a ravenous feeling
(Ravenous feeling)
Conviction must be greater than life’s afflictions
I follow in my own footsteps
Rather than following classical conditioning

I wish I had the will to keep my word

[Outro]
I’m looking back to face what’s ahead. (It’s dangerous)
I faced danger and it finally fled. (It’s dangerous)
I’m looking back to face what’s ahead. (It’s dangerous)
I faced danger and it finally fled. (It’s dangerous)

Bounty Killer Blast Dancehall Artists Supporting Criminals Amid Police & Gunmen Shootout

Bounty Killer did not hold back on giving his opinion on the violence currently gripping Jamaica.

The dancehall legend speaks out after receiving the news of a shootout that took place earlier today on Trafalgar Road in New Kingston that left two gunmen dead and another in custody. The shootout, which took place at a rather busy intersection in the Kingston 5 area around midday, was captured by a curious onlooker who was standing out meters away from where the shots were being fired.

The “Benz and Bimma” recording artist took to his Instagram account to let his 815,000 followers know just how he felt about what had happened.

“Moments after this took place on Waterloo Rd two likkle mascaraed go meet them Waterloo the little youths them have no rawt_d sense today”, Bounty Killer said. He claimed that merely hours before receiving the news, he had posted the “Crime Stop Crime Crash” video, which is a motivational clip promoting peace and taking a stand against crime.

He showcased his disgust with the current state of the nation as a whole and stated that he would not have bothered to leave Riverton or Seaview Gardens if this is what can be expected after leaving the inner-city communities. The artist then went on to put down those who support persons who engage in criminal activities.

He then continued to show his hatred for these individuals, claiming that persons associated with those who support this type of behavior should also be condemned.

“Is this the Jamaica we all wanted ppl really is it I don’t know about nobody wanted but if this was the life I wanted I wouldn’t bother to leave Riverton or Seaview Gardens then so hear mi all of the Stinking Nasty Duty Rotten Johncrow Skirmish Zaar Criminal deh fi bloodclaath DEAD in cold blood I CARE ZERO,” Killer added.

“My stance this I Stand With Country anyone who is friends or associates with any kind of pu**y ole like this should be treated likewise Especially Some Artiste gal and boy who is buying guns and mining gunman and criminal bullet unuh fi get to str8 up mi nuh hide and talk mi bad bumboclaath man who nuh like it just say a word bitches and witches waiting, Killer added.

Bounty Killer has been very vocal in his stance against the crime and violence that has become the norm in Jamaica’s society. He recently challenged the Prime Minister’s view that dancehall music was the main cause of crime by listing other social factors which play major roles in the problem that is currently sweeping the island.

Archons – Wandering The Burning Land Lyrics

What we are witnessing today is a struggle between the end of an old era
And the beginning of a new one
We are walking the path of extinction
This pain and fear can seem unfair, it’s beyond our limitations
The earth will put an end to us, and this is reality
What’s happening to us is what we deserve
We mmust fight the earth that gave us birth
Human kind has engaged its self-destruction

Wandering the burning land
The only thing you will choose is how you’ll face the end

The most ironic place to be, is just right here
Many people will die in fear, others in serenity
Where will you be
What will you do
When they will come for you
You better it’s on this way
Right this way
Every day that passes, life force is taken back
No matter if we try or not, we’ll totally fade away
As the world falls around us
We remain still and silent
Following the greedy nature of man
All we do is wandering the burning land

막 시끄럽게 울린 알림음
고요하길 바란 세상이
All day long, all day long

나도 모르게 주인공이 된
가십 가십
Mixed up 날 내버려 둬
하루 종일 mixed up, mixed up, oh, oh

Caparezza – Come Pripyat Lyrics

[Testo di "Come Pripyat"]

[Strofa 1]
Questa città non è più mia, ha un cuore cyber
Vedo più mutazioni di un disegnatore Marvel
Temo il contagio, nella mano ho un contatore geiger
Trattengo il fiato, tiratore, sniper
Prendi il rap, cambia forma e non lo prendi mai (Mai)
Potere all'alta moda quando prendi il mic (Mic)
L'opposto di quando ne fui rapito a tredici anni
E mi parlava da una fogna come Pennywise
Per questi ragazzi non ci sarà scampo
Giocano alla mafia, "Mamma, vado in strada, sparo"
A trent'anni da Capaci, vedi, sarà strano
Ma il modello è diventato Genny Savastano
La mia vita privata è troppo preziosa
Vedo gente invidiata non so per cosa (Cazzate)
Ma so che più si sputtana su qualche social
Più pare chе goda di un enorme stima

[Ritornello]
Non parlo al mondo come prima
Ma parlo a vuoto comе Pripyat
Nell'indolenza collettiva
Che mi avvelena come Pripyat
Non parlo al mondo come prima
Ma parlo a vuoto come Pripyat
La giostra è ferma come Pripyat
Falle una foto come Pripyat
[Strofa 2]
Il tuo capitano ne sa poco più di un bar
Guida con l'iPhone in mano e ci sei tu sul tram

È arrivato il cambiamento, caro Yusuf/Cat
E i miei parenti sembrano membri del Ku Klux Klan
Il mio Sud cambia pelle, mamba verde
Sono fermo sotto un peso schiaccia tempie, io cariatide
Il nemico sta sempre più a meridione
Tu sposta il cannone e minaccia terre in Antartide
Non mi lodare perché resto schivo
Anni che difendo chi voleva questo schifo
Resto a custodire il vuoto dentro questo scrigno
Vomito fuoco, ma sono il draghetto Spyro
Come va? Va tutto fuori posto
Come dentro il mio salotto dopo una partita a tennis (Ace)
Mi godo il nuovo mondo che mi sveglierà dal sogno
Come Luther King a Memphis (I had a dream)

[Ritornello]
Non parlo al mondo come prima
Ma parlo a vuoto come Pripyat
Nell'indolenza collettiva
Che mi avvelena come Pripyat
Non parlo al mondo come prima
Ma parlo a vuoto come Pripyat
La giostra è ferma come Pripyat
Falle una foto come Pripyat
[Outro]
Perché l'umana natura sta divorando ogni cosa
La carreggiata, le mura, persino i banchi di scuola
La giostra è ferma come Pripyat
Falle una foto come Pripyat

Dalida – Lazzarelle Lyrics

Lazzarella, où vas-tu par là?
Tu peux dès qu’on t’observe
jouer les vamps sur le vieux port,
chipper le rouge à lèvres
de ta mère quand tu sors,
bomber si l’on s’arrête
ton petit chandail de laine:
tu n’es pas encore prête
d’égaler Sophia Loren.

Ô, Lazzarella de mon cœur,
tu voudrais faire du cinéma.
Tu ferais mieux d’aider tes sœurs
et faire la soupe à ta mama.
On a raison d’appeler ainsi
les mauvaises graines comme toi,
mais prends bien garde un beau jour
si ton pauvre père t’aperçois.

Ô, Lazzarella, ça fera des étincelles:
Pan! Pour ton rouge trop canaille.
Pan! Pour ton chandail en bataille.
“Ça va t’apprendre à vivre une bonne fois!”
Et puis pour que le compte y soit.
Une autre, pendant qu’il y est,
pour ton copain qui vient parfois
t’attendre au bas de l’escalier.

Mais pour la mauvaise graine
faut croire qu’il existe un Dieu.
Un grand metteur-en-scène

fut séduit par tes beaux yeux.
Et sur les magazines
ton petit air effronté
Depuis ce jour voisine
avec bien des célébrités.

Ô, Lazzarella, tu es encore plus jolie.
Dans ta petite jupe à fleurs
quand tu parais ce n’est qu’un cri.
Tous tes copains le samedi
sont fiers de te voir sur l’écran
surtout depuis qu’ils ont appris
combien tu aimes tes parents.

Ô, Lazzarella, tu leur fais la vie belle.
Pour ton père un bateau de pêche,
pour ta mère une jolie calèche,
et pour tes quatre sœurs quatr’époux de choix.
Et puis pour que le compte y soit,
pour ton copain de l’escalier
ton petit cœur comme il se doit
puisque l’on va vous marier.

Ce qui prouve que dans la vie,
malgré les gars qui tournent autour,
les Lazzarellas d’Italie
restent fidèles à leurs amours.
Lazzarella, Lazzarella mia.

You’ll never call me lucky, cause you know I deserved it

Surround yourself with snakes, serpents
I don’t know what type of friends, I just know what my worth is

Imi place.

Ce le place fetelor
Nici ele nu stiu ce vor
Cand te-astepti sa fie easy
Ele trec pe modul busy
Ce le place fetelor
Nici ele nu stiu ce vor
Cand te-astepti sa fie easy
Ele trec pe modul busy

Aaau, au un obicei
De la primul hei
Ele iti aprind scantei, ele
Aaau, au trup create de zei
Te face sa il vrei
Da’ nu stii cum sa le iei

Indecise, indecise
Cand le-ntrebi nu au nimic
Ce actrite, ce actrite
Joaca dramele zambind
Ba usor, ba ignore
Ba nu vor, ba le e dor
Ce-o fi in capul lor?!

Ce le place fetelor
Nici ele nu stiu ce vor
Cand te-astepti sa fie easy
Ele trec pe modul busy
Ce le place fetelor
Nici ele nu stiu ce vor
Cand te-astepti sa fie easy
Ele trec pe modul busy.

[Anastasia:]
Eu sunt ca o ghicitoare
Vrei raspunsul, nu il stiu
Ce imi place, ce nu-mi place
Suna-ma sa simti pe viu
Si viteza si rabdare
Si devreme si tarziu
E un joc care-pe-care
Sa castige un pariu.
Fa-ma sa-mi dau seama ce vreau
Poti fi ce vreau sau poti fi propriul meu
Gentleman,
Am vise si un plan
Nu arunc timpul meu pe geam
Doar pentru o partida.

Ce le place fetelor
Nici ele nu stiu ce vor
Cand te-astepti sa fie easy
Ele trec pe modul busy
Ce le place fetelor
Nici ele nu stiu ce vor
Cand te-astepti sa fie easy
Ele trec pe modul busy

Imi place, nu-mi place
Imi place, nu-mi place
Imi place, nu-mi place
Imi place.

Ce le place fetelor
Nici ele nu stiu ce vor
Cand te-astepti sa fie easy
Ele trec pe modul busy
Ce le place fetelor
Nici ele nu stiu ce vor
Cand te-astepti sa fie easy
Ele trec pe modul busy.
