A recent find for me. The musical colours and tones in this piece are a wonder to behold. The double bass sound is a piece of magic just by itself. Just beautiful, and of course the voice.
A strong memory of hearing this song in 1975. As a 14 year old I was captivated.
My peers would have not approved.
|When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse, out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look but it was gone. I cannot put my finger on it now. The child has grown, the dream is gone.
Lyrics from “Comfortably numb”
More reflective music, seemingly a lost art now.
I was in Bristol for the Wildscreen festival and decided to go for a walk.
In one of the city squares an area was cordoned off for rebuilding but you could still kind of walk around it.
I spotted these trees overgrowing a statue and it reminded me of a part of the conversation between David Attenborough and Chris Packam at a talk I attended the previous day,
For just a moment, they speculated how the natural world would recover well from the extinction of humans, they didnt dwell long on the subject aware that they may have overstepped some boundary.
In the city centre I caught a little glimpse of the possibility.
A beautiful work of art. Here are the lyrics in full:
Heartleap, headlong, heartache
Heartbreak, headdown, heartfelt
Heartmelt, headstrong, heartspring
Heartsing, headgone, heartleap
Heartsleep, headspace, heartsease
Heartplease, headache, heartsearch
Heartlurch, headfirst, heartlong
Heartsong, headdone, heartleap
