It´s Music To Your Ears

I decided to help our friends from Ireland, who like us are going through an economic crisis with an impressive 32%(!!) deficit...still they have a minimum wage that pays 8,65€ per hour to an adult worker...what the hell dudes?!, so I´m gonna order this for me in a few weeks to Christmas...as a matter of fact it´s kinda shameful not having this DVD yet...

Most talented family in the music world. Hands down.

Stand Out Qualities

As a music lover, and I think I can speak for all of us on the following subject, one of the things we like to do is know more from the person, or group of persons, that can move you with a melody and some lyrics in a three and a half minutes timespace. Whether if it´s by tv, radio or reading a magazine you will build an image based in what was said in the interviews and/or actions you take from them. Often that image can be far off, often can be very different from another person who got the exact same "data" and also came up with a certain image.
With this I wanna transcript a DVD finale from a singer that you might have noticed that I quite like her.

"When you write songs you really only feel that you´re worth anything when you just finished a song. All the other days of the year I don´t feel like a songwritter. I´m convinced that I just wrote my last song and it´s never gonna happen again. It´s hard, you only have a very...this sounds so bland, but it´s so very true, you only have a limited amount of notes. You´re trying to make something really unique and you only have these very limited tools that you can use. So sometimes I´m convinced that I´m never gonna be able to do it again, and it keeps me on the ground...keeps me humble. Because I only worth as much as my last song. That´s the way it goes."

It´s Music To Your Ears

On a random tweet saying that I had to be a political science expert for tomorrow´s test someone replied me with a random tweet too...with a link to this:

Maybe I was living under a rock but this guy is around for ages and I only knew a cover of Wonderwall from him.

I will definitely search more, and I already took a listen to one of his albums in a store, but I´m already stuck to this one:

So damn good!

And guess who sings "When The Stars Go Blue"? Yup...Ryan Adams.


This week is "texts week" so lots to study (I don´t even remember what´s that already) but in the end of the week (and oh...am I looking forward to that!) I´ll post a weird text that I wrote and finally come back to the reading of Paul Auster´s The New York Trilogy!
