19 Oct 2016 An A-Ha kind of morning (Scoundrel Days, Cry Wolf and Hunting High and Low and Objects in the Mirror) and JRM London Town interview (why bands like the Clash don’t exist today)

 

Hello there, how are you?  It’s about 9:43 am as I write to you on this Wednesday morning.  We were able to go back to bed and get some sleep.  We both went to bed with the chills and woke up with the sweats… may be coming down with something?  If it was just me I’d say may be I’m experiencing “the change” women my age undergo but it’s both of us!  Who knows, just going to stay home today and keep it low key today.

Something that helps me when I’m not feeling well is to listen to music and this morning my ears wanted one of my all-time favorite bands… A-ha!  I have my favorite “voices” and there is nothing quite like harmonizing with Morten Harket!!  He’s one of the voices that has walked with me through the lightest and darkest days and I’m so grateful to him and the entire band!   I wanted to mention I share songs from You tube but I also BUY the songs I share so that I can show my appreciation to the musicians that bring so much magic into my life every day!

I would encourage you, if you like any of these songs that you consider purchasing them.  These artists need to be compensated for their hard work!  (Thank you Jon (JRM) for bringing this up in this video recently!)  Until we live in the days when we don’t need money to survive, we must help each other how as we can and compensate each other for our works. 

Much love to you visitor!

 

 

Scoundrel Days

Was that somebody screaming
It wasn’t me for sure
I lift my head up from uneasy
Pillows
Put my feet on the floor
Cut my wrist on a bad thought
And head for the door

Outside on the pavement
The dark makes no noise
I can feel the sweat on my lips
Leaking into my mouth
I’m heading out for the steep hills
They’re leaving me no choice

And see, as our lives are in the making
We believe through the lies and the hating
That love goes free

For want of an option
I run the wind ’round
I dream pictures of houses burning
Never knowing nothing else to do
With death comes the morning
Unannounced and new

Was it too much to ask for
To pull a little weight,
They forgive anything but greatness
These are scoundrel days
And I’m close to calling out their names
As pride hits my face
See, as our lives are in the making
We believe through their lies and the hating
That love goes free through
Scoundrel days

I reach the edge of town
I’ve got blood in my hair
Their hands touch my body
From everywhere
But I know that I’ve made it
As I run into the air

And see, as our lives are in the making
We believe through the lies and the hating
That love goes free
Through scoundrel days

Cry Wolf

“Night I left the city,
I dreamt of a wolf”

He came from where the winds are cold
And truth is seen through keyholes
Strange longings never sleep
Now he’s come where no hearts beat
Cry wolf
Time to worry
Cry wolf
Time to worry

You can start, but you cannot stop
You give in, but you can’t give up
You can tell all your desperate jokes
To a world that puts
Love on hold
Cry wolf
Time to worry
Cry wolf
Time to worry now

The sunken-in eyes
And the pain in his cries
A shape in the dark
Cry wolf
Time to worry
Cry wolf
Time to worry now

Hunting High And Low

Here I am and within the reach of my hands
She’s sound asleep and she’s sweeter now
Than the wildest dream could have seen her
And I watch her sleeping away
Though I know I’ll be hunting high and low

High, there’s no end to the lengths I’ll go to
Hunting high and low
High, there’s no end to lengths I’ll go

To find her again, upon this my dreams are depending
Through the dark I sense the poundin’ of her heart next to mine
She’s the sweetest love I could find
So I guess I’ll be hunting high and low

High, there’s no end to the lengths I’ll go to
High and low
High, do you know what it means to love you?

I’m hunting high and low
And now she’s tellin’ me she’s got to go away

I’ll always be hunting high and low
Hungry for you
(And now she’s tellin’ me)
Watch me tearing myself to pieces
Hunting high and low

High, there’s no end to the lengths I’ll go to
Oh, for you I’ll be hunting high and low

A-ha – Objects In The Mirror Lyrics

Artist: A-ha

Album: Cast In Steel

You drive down your old street
Familiar smiles from those you meet
You’ve been around been everywhere
But objects in the rear view mirror
Are closer than they appearLooking back is bittersweet
When the world was at your feet
Love would make your life complete
No one makes it on their own

You’ve come so far
In your comfortable car
Now objects in the rear view mirror
Seem closer than they are

Looking back is bittersweet
All the world was at your feet
Love could make your life complete
Yeah, love could make your life complete
Teach your heart to skip a beat
Lift your eyes above the street

This is where you once belonged

Come on now, its not so bad
Thinking back on the fund we had
We can stitch a life together
With the fibres of the past
But you cannot make a fleeting moment
Promise it will last

Looking back is bittersweet
Love the world was at your feet
Lift your eyes above the street
This is where you once belonged

Been everywhere
And now you’re here
And objects in the rear view mirror
Seem to disappear

and just because I LOVE this song featuring JRM with his brothers in their band Suzie’s Field and wanted to buy it but can’t find it on ITunes – it should be there!

  1. I still like A-ha and I always will remember their first song take on me… it was so special with the drawings and as I was a teenie I often wished that I’m the girl in the comic strip :o)

    • YES! That was one of the very first MTV videos I ever watched and I just fell in love with them! When I was in the Air Force I made a friend and he and I would sit and harmonize with Morten for hours lol. Doing that helped me so much as it was hard to adapt to military life for me! You made me smile about the wishing you were the girl in the comic strip lol! I am thinking many of us did! Love to you, have a great day!
