Cause And Effect - Artificial Construct - Part One

Cause And Effect - Artificial Construct - Part One

Every time I think they can’t get moodier they do.  All the old catalog has been released also, but not remastered.  The original C&E album is number three on my wish list of remasters.

Moenia Dar la Vuelta – Equivocal translation on the way.

No fue muy difícil que dar solo – It wasn’t very hard to (Be alone?).

Todo se resume a un error – It boils down to a mistake.

Yo ya no le creo al amor – I no longer believe in love

 Por qué no puedo – Because I can’t.

Por qué no puedo – Because I can’t.

Pero a tí eso no te importa – But to you this was not important

Algo mas es lo que ves en mí – You saw something else in me

No preguntas nunca por la hora – You never ask for the time

Solo quieres estar aquí –  You just want to be here

Algo mas en mí – There’s more to me

No preguntas nunca por la hora – You never ask for the time

Sólo quieres estar aquí – You just want to be here

Pero a tí eso no te importa – But to you this was not important

Algo mas es lo que ves en mí – Something more is what you see in me.

No preguntas nunca por la hora

Solo quieres estar aquí – You just want to be here

Lo que cuesta todo – What costs everything

Es dar la vuelta – is to turn around

Es dar la vuelta – is to turn around

The Real Tuesday Weld – At the End of the World

April 19th, 2010

Could not find this anywhere on the webs, so I scratched them out here. I know it is Jazz and not Synthpop at all. Background fodder.
Intro

-Spoken: Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the end of the world.

-I hope you’re all comfortable for this last evening’s performance of the Clerkenwell Kid

I’ll see you in my dreams (Isham Jones, 1924)

Though the days are long

Twilight sings a song

Of the happiness that used to be.

Soon my eyes will close

Soon Ill find repose

And in dreams you’re always near to me.

I’ll see you in my dreams.

Hold you in my dreams

Someone took you out of my arms

Still I feel the thrill of your charms.

Lips that once were mine

Tender eyes that shine

They will light my way tonight

I’ll see you in my dreams.

Lips that once were mine

Tender eyes that shine

They will light my way tonight

I’ll see you in my dreams.

They will light my way tonight

I’ll see you in my dreams.

-Spoken:  Hello, so here we all are at the end of the world on Valentines eve.

Epitaph for a Dream

You were mine

You were mine

For all time, time, time

Found in the forest

Far from your home

Naked, abandoned, lost, alone

In the mirror of dreams

I had seen you timid

Stripped to the bone

Fur skin and feathered

I tamed you with tears

Trained you with violence

Cloaked you in blood

Changing in silence

Loved you right un-

to the end..

of.. (love?)

-Spoken:  Thank you.  I’ve been dreaming again.

Over the Hillsides

I kiss you and creep

Cross the floor

Through the door

And I’m gone

-Yodeling-

Through the trees where the meadow

We planted in spring has grown long

-Yodeling-

Saddle the steed

That’s tethered for me and I’m gone

You’re sleeping and dreaming

You’re reaping the seed you have sown

With kids and a house and bringing the harvest back home

And you’ll never guess

When you wake I’ll have left you alone.

– Yodeling-

I’ll go back into the stories you heard as a child

Back over the boundary where you found me running wild

And you’ll grow old

And wonder if I

Was a dream that you had once upon

A time

And you’ll grow old

And wonder if I

Was a dream that you had once upon

A time

-Spoken: Cheers.  Ok, Ready?

Black Birdies Come

– Instrumental

-Spoken: Thank You. Here’s a song for the dark times ahead.

 

What it Takes

Have you got what it takes

To see me through these bad days

Have you got what it takes

To weather my wicked ways

Oh I

Hope I

Find that

You might

Have just what it takes

To bear me though your back breaks

Have you got what it takes

To hold on tight

Though your hand shakes

Oh I hope I find that you might

Oh I hope I find that you might

Have just what it takes

To see me through these bad days.

-Spoken:  Ladies and Gentlemen, It’s my great pleasure to introduce our very own nightingale, your very own Miss Mara Carlisle.

-Spoken:  Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen.  There’s a bird flying high above the city. It looks down and on a station platform it sees two figures and a train about to leave.

Nightingales

A shade is dre fa

A whistle blows a train slows

You wave once more in dro again

Your lose yourself against

In twilight dreams it sweet regretfulness

And maybe you’ll forget what you’ve become.

With sad like nightingales

Or happy fits and childhood fairytales

Forever setting sail into a sun

Nightingales

Nightingales

-Spoken: Thanks Mara, Thank you.

Dreaming of you

-Spoken:  So this is it ladies and gentlemen, this is the end. So yes; sweet dreams

I’ve been dreamin’ of you all the night through

And the summer sunshine found me still sleeping and dreamin’ of you

I’ve been dreamin’ of you lost in the blue

And I get the most peculiar feeling you’ve been dreaming too

You know I thought that I was falling

But I woke up just before I hit the ground

And found

I’ve been dreamin’ of you

My friends all gathered round me

Their lips moving in time

I felt that life surround me

As they were waving me goodbye

I’ve been dreamin’ of you

You know I get lost in the dreaming

I’ve been dreamin’ of you

You know I get the most peculiar feeling

That I’ve been dreamin’ of you

– Spoken:  Thank you but we’re almost out of time ladies and Gentlemen It’s almost Valentines Day and who knows what surprises tomorrow might bring.  Good Day.

Valentines

Well this is my Valentine to you

And I hope that it finds you out there in the blue

If you’ll be mine I’ll be your valentine

And though this ain’t just for a boy or a girl (though?)

This is a love letter to the world

Come rain or shine I’ll be your Valentine

Will you be my Valentine

Though war religion money sex death love may

One day prove the end of us

Well there’s still time shall we be valentines?

Then even if they don’t make it through

We’ll know that you once loved me and I loved you too

And the stars will shine on all those dead valentines

So will you be my valentine?

Well there’s still time you be my valentine?

-Spoken: Cheers

Outro

-Spoken:  Ladies and gentlemen thank you, thank you.  You have been a pleasure. And it just remains for me to say as this evening draws to a close, “Good luck and goodnight.”

Goldfrapp is early.

March 29th, 2010

Goldfrapp is back from the clowny dreamy soup album much quicker than expected. This time it is a trip back to early Abba 80’s girl groups. Enjoyed it. Head First stands out. The last track Voicething is more experimental. Very Laurie Anderson meets Imogene Heap. I want a whole album done in that style.

We Are three Pilots

May 27th, 2009

Shiny Toy Guns has several versions of their first CD. For all the talk about remastering and different female vocalists, these albums seem very similar. I made comparison tables and listened to them all. Here are simple track lists:

The European version is Version 3, but also has Rocketship as Track 12.

The Motion Sick

April 15th, 2009


Another group that nailed the 80’s! Found this on DDRx which also has a Book of Love, a PSB, Alien Six, Fischerspooner, and so many more yummy Synthpop songs. They hail from Boston where Freezepop lives.
