So it’s been a while

It’s June. How on earth did that happen?

May was so incredibly busy. I had something every weekend, and it was all good stuff, but man, time just flies when your days are all filled up. Here’s a sampling of a few of the things that went on last month:

They stay the same, people like us

This morning I was browsing YouTube to find a couple more songs I’d Shazam’d and wanted to add to my spring playlist, and I came across this one. It’s not new, although I don’t know how old it is, but I love love love both Rufus and Loudon Wainwright, and I was thrilled to find a new-to-me song by the two of them together.

“The Days That We Die” – Rufus & Loudon Wainwright

You’ll never change, neither will I
We’ll stay the same ‘til the days that we die
I’ll never win, neither will you
So what in this world are we gonna do?

People hate change, they make a fuss
They stay the same, people like us
Folks wanna win, when they can choose
More important than that, folks don’t wanna loose

When did it start, how did it go wrong
Why in this world can we get along?
Each victory should be good news
But when I have to win, you’re the one that I lose

I wanna change, I don’t know how
We need to change, though, I know that now
It’s sad but it’s true, and I have to say
That the days that we die aren’t that far away

You’ll never change, neither will I
We’ll stay the same ‘til the days that we die
I’ll never win, neither will you
So what in this world are we gonna do?


Cover love

What is it with Grey’s Anatomy and the music they find? Last week’s episode had at least 3 more excellent covers, to add to the ones from the week before.

“Blister in the Sun” – Radiant Life Perspective
I have NO idea what is happening in this video, if it’s from a movie I completely missed it, but the song is great.

“Ordinary World” – Joy Williams
I think this is a Duran Duran cover? So good.

“We Built This City” – Aron Wright & Jill Andrews
I think this might be my favourite version of this song, ever. And when I looked this song up, I thought Jill Andrews’ name sounded familiar so I googled her and then remembered that she also sings another of my favourite songs – “Rust or Gold” which was also featured on Grey’s, oh, a year or so ago? It was my alarm clock wakeup song for months and months because it starts off slowly and fades in, so it didn’t wake me up with a jolt. I’m positive I posted that video here once before but I can’t find it anywhere, so just click on the link above to listen to it.
