I have been asked to post the Weekend Music Thread, so here it is! The theme is “Water.”
During the summer months, so many of us head out to the beach or to the lake, or just sit around thinking of cool, cool rains…
When I mentioned this idea on the O/T thread, several people had good suggestions for songs, including:
It Never Rains in Southern California by Albert Hammond
The Beatles’ “Rain”
“The Rain Song” by Led Zepplin
Gene Kelly’s Singing in The Rain
Fire and Rain by James Taylor
And these are just confining the topic to rain itself! Expanding the idea to the more general topic of “water” makes the possibilities nearly endless. Water in a bathtub, water in a glass, or even the raging sea (as I’ve painted in the intro picture, a copy of Turner’s Shipwreck.)
Brook Benton–Rainy Night In Georgia;
And Handel’s “Water Music” as part of our out door wedding
someone should do surf Beach Boys
Well, nostalgia, “Old Man River” Always something to learn from these lyrics.
Fortunes, “Rainy Day Feeling Again”
Corny as is may be, Good old cowboy music, Sons of the Pioneers, “Cool, Clear Water”
The James Gang–The Ashes, The Rain and I;
Rammstein – Seemann [Sailor]
Elane – Crystal Clear Water
Miranda Sex Garden – Gush Forth My Tears
The original a capella version here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MX4YlC2W18
Soazig – Ar Soudarded
I’ve no idea what the Breton means there, but anything Brittany says sea-swept to me.
God Lives Underwater – Empty
Whatever happened to these guys? Totally held up over time. Brings back many fuzzy acid-laced memories.
Slightly o/t- my friend is a kayaker in WA. They found these experts conducting a surfing school! 😉
This is in no way, not in the least pagan. No, not at all.
Daemonia Nymphe – Nymphs of the Seagod Nereus
I suppose you could cheat yourself and not give this a try…
Angels of Venice – Crystal Tears
The Crüxshadows – Tears
The gambit flow of shifting thought,
Shall ride a kiss upon my cross,
And with each moment of despair,
Lay to heart a lovely tear.
Within each bulb the salty sea,
Swims an ocean silently,
Swims the forest of my dreams,
Swims the essence of my being (…I call me)
I shot this just over a minute long video at a park by the water tonight, so it counts, couldn’t resist, the kid was having so much fun dancing to the music. http://www.youtube.com/user/zenith1959#p/a/u/0/BBUFNbSNqDk
