R.E.M. – Everybody Hurts

Β©R.E.M. – Everybody Hurts

While ‘scrolling through’ and reading a lady’s written blog posts I happened across ‘Everybody Hurts’ and I guess because the song’s quite old now, I hadn’t listened in a while, then I remembered I’d bought the album CD (what’s one of those I hear you ask) when first released.

The album’s ok πŸ™‚ , honest of me πŸ™‚ For ALL of us certain songs are memorable, for personal reasons the lyrics may embed in our consciousness, lyrics we’ll never forget, who knows why emotions are experienced by some and not others except the affect can be quite profound.

Well ‘Everybody Hurts’ for me is one of those songs. Enjoy πŸ™‚

When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
When you’re sure you’ve had enough of this life, well hang on.
Don’t let yourself go, everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes.

Sometimes everything is wrong. Now it’s time to sing along.
When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go, (hold on)
When you think you’ve had too much of this life, well hang on.

Everybody hurts. Take comfort in your friends.
Everybody hurts. Don’t throw your hand. Oh, no. Don’t throw your hand.

If you feel like you’re alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If you’re on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,
When you think you’ve had too much of this life to hang on.

Well, everybody hurts sometimes,
Everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes.
And everybody hurts sometimes. So, hold on, hold on.
Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on. Hold on, hold on.

Gorillaz – We Got The Power

It’s been quite a while since I last posted a favourite music post, well here’s ‘Gorillaz’ playing ‘We Got The Power’ live on ‘The Graham Norton Show’…………the best chat show on the planet bar none!

I’m an engineer by trade, a toolmaker who used to work in a foundry as an apprentice, well ‘We Got The Power’ features a large bell cast at the Whitechapel bronze foundry, alas the factory is no more having been closed a few years and incidentally they cast the United States Liberty Bell.

Two reasons for sharing, I love the song, I’m singing it to myself all day long and I think Jehnny Beth from post punk band ‘The Savages’ is gorgeous…………..such a sexy woman and fabulous singer ❀ . Enjoy

I don’t think I need to explain who Damon Alban and virtual band Gorillaz are and that this track is from their new album……. you already know that πŸ™‚

(“We Got the Power” is a song by alternative rock virtual band Gorillaz, featuring Jehnny Beth of British post-punk band Savages and backing vocals from former Oasis guitarist and songwriter Noel Gallagher and American rapper D.R.A.M., who also appears on the group’s single “Andromeda”. The song was released on 23 March 2017. It was released as the second single from their fifth studio album Humanz) courtesy of Wikipedia.
