Nah, doesn't seem to work as at ZFI, where the appropriate [non-]HTML markings, or whatever, would instill the appropriate effects.

(this new board does not put an effective wrapper on YouTube "addresses").

ps the referenced music is the particular song, "Luka". The singer went to college across the street from me (avenue: Broadway) in New York City, some long while after I had graduated from Columbia (she was at Barnard, evidently).

pps So many other female vocalists in USA pop-music sound like her, since then. Including especially now the young lady who just came out with her first record after a three year gap, I think, named, "Taylor Swift", or something like that. Really, I don't know "Country-" singers from 'Adam', if there ever was an "Adam"; I'm dubious about that whole bizz-ness, and others. :). Thirty years after, and she's (Swift's... ) emulating the flat-vocal style of Suzanne Vega? Remarkable. "What goes around, comes around". No accounting.

Nope. Not yet. This youtube embedding requires kind of an add-on, Will look into this.

Youtube embed usage.

For a link like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZt7J0iaUD0

You input just the following part: VZt7J0iaUD0

Must be:

Code: Select all

Brings back memories. Studer, Ferrograph, Nagra, Uher & Revox back in my day.

I remember trying to buy a reel of tape in France one time. About 1974. It took the very frustrated shopkeeper about half an hour to realise I wanted some bande magnetique :D

Nagra was my asset.

Catch you elsewhere!, as I'm on the wing, uninvited (opposite of invited and welcome, I take it from Ani; see within).

Gone-zo, Bonzo. All's swell round about these warm precincts. ;-) CHEERS!

Fight the Law -- "fight" the Dharma -- and you get the natural residue, the samsaric effects. Oh well.

Even when we don't fight, we may get the same. The key is effective and correct practice. A teacher can guide us, along with others.

These fellows sing to it, or something else. But, a reasonable facsimile. Do not fold, spindle, or mutilate... .



I Fought The Law
the Bobby Fuller Four (1965)

[Verse 1]
I'm breakin' rocks in the hot sun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I needed money 'cause I had none
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

[Chorus]
I miss my baby and I feel so sad
I guess my race is run
Oh, she's the best girl I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

[Verse 2]
I'm robbin' people with a six-gun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won
I miss my baby and the good fun
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

[Chorus]
I miss my baby and I feel so sad
I guess my race is run
Oh, she's the best girl I ever had
I fought the law and the law won
I fought the law and the law won

Mr. Phil Ochs, 1969. How this artist was ever less popular than that 'Elvis' fellow is, well, I don't get it. OK, he came along a bit later. During Vietnam.

This is his famous "Gas Station Women".



Gas Station Women
  • by Phil Ochs (1969)
Everything is going wrong, everything is bad
There's no one I can talk to when I am feeling sad
She broke my heart a million ways
I'm losing all my friends
The boys down at the factory ask me where I've been
Fill 'er up with love
Please won't you, mister?
Just the hi-test is what I used to say
But that was before I lost my baby
I'll have a dollar's worth of regular today
I never should have left my home, never left the farm
But the city was exciting it couldn't do me any harm
The more folks I run across, the less I seem to know
The days go by too quickly the nights go by too slow.
Fill 'er up with love
Please won't you, mister?
Just the hi-test is what I used to say
But that was before I lost my baby
I'll have a dollar's worth of regular today
I cannot face another girl, I believe I'll turn to drink
So I won't remember, so I won't have to think
Tomorrow will bring happiness or, at least, another day
So I will bid farewell and I'll be on my way
Fill 'er up with love
Please won't you, mister?
Just the hi-test is what I used to say
But that was before I lost my baby
I'll have a dollar's worth of regular today.

Here's to the State of Mississippi

by Phil ochs

Here's to the State of Mississippi,
For underneath her borders, the Devil draws no line!,
If you drag her muddy rivers, nameless bodies you will find.
Whoa!, the fat trees of the forest have hid a thousand crimes,
The Calendar is lyin' when it reads the present time!

Whoa, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of,
Mississippi find yourself another country to be part of!

And here's to the People of Mississippi
Who say the folks up north, they just don't understand
And they tremble in the shadows at the thunder of the Klan
The sweating of their souls can't wash the blood from off their hands
They smile and shrug their shoulders at the murder of a man
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
Mississippi find yourself another country to be part of

And here's to the Schools of Mississippi
Where they're teaching all the children that they don't have to care
All the rudiments of hatred are present everywhere
And every single classroom is a factory of despair
There's nobody learning such a foreign word as fair
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
Mississippi find yourself another country to be part of

And here's to the Cops of Mississippi
They're chewing their tobacco as they lock the prison door
Their bellies bounce inside them when they knock you to the floor
No, they don't like taking prisoners in their private little war
Behind their broken badges there are murderers and more
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
Mississippi find yourself another country to be part of

And, here's to the Judges of Mississippi
Who wear the robe of honor as they crawl into the court
They're guarding all the bastions of their phony legal fort
Oh, justice is a stranger when the prisoners report
When the black man stands accused the trial is always short
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
Mississippi find yourself another country to be part of

And here's to the Government of Mississippi
In the swamp of their bureaucracy they're always bogging down
And criminals are posing as the mayors of the towns
And they hope that no one sees the sights and no one hears the sounds
And the speeches of the governor are the ravings of a clown
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
Mississippi find yourself another country to be part of

And here's to the Laws of Mississippi
Congressmen will gather in a circus of delay
While the Constitution is drowning in an ocean of decay
Unwed mothers should be sterilized, I've even heard them say
Yes, corruption can be classic in the Mississippi way
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
Mississippi find yourself another country to be part of

And here's to the Churches of Mississippi
Where the cross, once made of silver, now is caked with rust
And the Sunday morning sermons pander to their lust
The fallen face of Jesus is choking in the dust
Heaven only knows in which God they can trust
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
Mississippi find yourself another country to be part of!

I guess you've all heard this.

If not, here you are: it's special, because unprecedented, and unmatched.

If you have heard it, well, here it is again, for some reason: this should give it the effect of freshness and impertinence.

Live!, at Leeds! A while ago (May 16, 1970). --Joe



Young Man Blues

by: The Who

Oh, well, a young man
Ain't got nothin' in the world these days
I said a young man
Ain't got nothin' in the world these days
Well, you know in the old days
When a young man was a strong man
All the people, they'd step back
When a young man walked by
But you know, nowadays
It's the old man
He's got all the money
And a young man ain't got nothin' in the world these days
I said
Ain't got nothing
Got sweet nothing
Everybody knows that
Everybody knows that
Everybody knows that a young man ain't got nothin'
Ooh, yeah
Everybody knows that a young man ain't got nothin'
In the old, in the old days
Oh, in the old days
Everybody stepped back when a young man walked by
They stepped back
They stepped back
They stepped back
They stepped far, far back, yeah
Nowadays, if you're the young man
You ain't got nothin' in the world these days, I said
They ain't got nothin'!
They got sweet fuck-all!
