What Goes On In Your Life?

Title: The BeatlesWhat Goes On

(“Rubber Soul” is an album you should have in your collection…which is really what goes for every The Beatles album, though, so just get the box “The Beatles In Stereo” and you should thank me for the rest of your life)

How long has it been now? It’s been 12 days already, actually. Well, that’s quite…something. I did in fact write a post…in a way, on my cell phone, but it hasn’t got the e-mail address for WordPress and it hasn’t got WiFi, so I haven’t thought too much about it anyways. It’s more of an essay in a way than a blog post, but hey, everything counts, right?

The main problem with using songs by The Beatles as titles on my posts, is that WordPress only suggest me to apply Beatles tags and Beatles pictures into the post! AND I WANT NORMAL PICTURES OF EVERYDAY THINGS! But hey, I COULD just go to Wikipedia and find it myself, though, couldn’t I?

Have you ever tried to search for “Wikipedia” on Wikipedia? I hadn’t until now, but that’s an article as well! Guess it’s the first they made. Probably is their “About” page as well as the article page. I linked Wikipedia to that article above now, so go there and have a look! I’ll wait……………DID YOU LOOK? Well, it’s not important anyway now, is it?

HAHA! Now I found the PERFECT picture for this post! Hope you like it! NO IDEA what it is, but it was just so very…random. I just HAD to use it! THAT’S EVERYDAY LIFE FOR YOU RIGHT THERE, PEOPLE! We need more of that kind of things. Less murder, more…love and tasting things.

Well, now I’m just blabbering, but at least I’ve started posting again , haven’t I? At least I posted now, let’s see how much more I’ll post in short time. Perhaps a lot, perhaps…nothing. I think I use a very verbal language in my posts.

QUESTION:

What is your most treasured music album in your collection? Give me the name of the artist, the album, which format you have it in, and why you treasure THAT album so much.


When You Call My Name


Title: The Rolling Stones – Bitch

 

I miss you too much lately. Still, I feel like you’ve changed, so I have to learn to know you again. I miss it when you call my name and I felt like you looked up to me as if I was some kind of superhero, while I thought to myself that you are the most perfect girl I can think of and how lucky I am. To quote The Beatles: “You don’t look different, but you have changed”. We all change. Still, we don’t change. People change a bit, but not totally. You’re still the girl I knew, and you’re still the girl I fell and keeps falling in love with. I love you with all of my heart. I need you. I miss spending all my spare time with you. I think I’m a bit depressed from all the missing you. I want you.

 

Though, you have to be free. I get that you have to change, because I’m not the only person in your world and you’ve understood some things I haven’t really figured before this weekend. Mainly, what you’ve gotten that I haven’t before now, is that it’s not so that you have to let go of everything of your current life when you get engaged or move together with someone. You can still visit your family. You can still talk to them. In my mind, I’ve been set to let go of everything once it was just you and me. But there is no “just you and me”, is there? We can’t just die away from everything, in a social suicide metaphorical way. I don’t have to stop talking and meeting and hanging out with all of my friends. If I’d gotten this a couple of years ago, I’d have so many more friends now.

 

Since I haven’t figured this before now, I’ve kinda been preparing to let go of everything and everyone.

I Want You So Bad It’s Driving Me Mad

Title: The BeatlesI Want You (She’s So Heavy)

I just learned something interesting about this song today. Though I’ve listened to it A LOT of times, I haven’t really thought about how easy this almost-8-minutes-long-song lyrics is. Do you want to know how easy of a lyrics its got? There’s only 14 different words in it! It’s still one of my favorite songs EVER, though, but that’s quite fascinating, isn’t it? That (one of) the greatest band EVER has a long, cool, kinda heavy song that’s only got FOURTEEN different words in it.

If you haven’t heard it, you should definitely check it out. The preferred way is of course to buy the The Beatles In Stereo box…or just the Abbey Road album in newly remastered stereo version, but if you want to hear it NOW, then go here then: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnF91s2bBpg


When I Call You Up, Your Line’s Engaged


Title: The Beatles – You Won’t See Me

I thought the title fits how it’s like a lot lately. When I try to talk to people, I have to wait for a long time, if I GET TO talk AT someone AT ALL! Luckily, Play.com has a autumn sale, so my solitude has something to do in the mean time.

Photo by me

I took the photo today. It was just filled with seagulls outside our window, so I took it with my Sony Ericsson W995 from our living room. I didn’t get to capture them all in one shot, but this was a good shot, I thought. I like the photo myself, at least, and that’s what matters the most to me.

This week, TWO of my best friend’s (but not THE best friend) has birthday. I didn’t know they had it at the same week, but it’s kinda cool. And easier for me to remember. Especially since it’s right after my ten days of being allowed to feel sorry for myself or “suicide days” or whatever you wanna call them. They went really well this year though, so I’m pleased with that.

I’m sorry about the lack of “Most Special Tweets Of The Week”, but today I looked through an entire week of tweets, and I think I retweeted over 100 of those I looked at (and by the way, it took me TWO HOURS to look through them all, and then some!) One of the tweets even made me buy something! Or…pre-order something, that is.

The thing I pre-ordered was the upcoming debut album by Fistful Of Mercy on CD, including a T-shirt by the band, and if I’m so lucky that there was less than 300 people who had pre-ordered before me, I get a signed poster! I really hope I get one of those, but it’s not very likely, unfortunately. Perhaps fortunately for the band, though, since it was a couple of days since that was tweeted.

Album of the post: The Beatles – Rubber Soul (a DEFINITE MUST-have! I didn’t like it the first time(s) I listened through it myself, but when I heard through it in the new stereo mixes, I started loving it, and it’s now probably the album I song-for-song like the best.)

Question:
Is there any albums being released this year you’d recommend people to get?


I Want You So Bad, Honey, I Want You


Title: Bob DylanI Want You

I’m listening to some Dylan now. It’s been a lot of months since last time, but it’s good to be back at being able to listen to him (something I can’t with Frank Zappa in a year or two of Last.fm-ial reasons) again. “Ballad Of A Thin Man” is still a song I can’t REALLY figure out, “Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again” is still a favorite and “Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat” is a great bluesy song. To think of all these songs being made in ’65/’66 is hard to picture when you listen to the others that were making music back then. Dylan has become a great name for a reason (but it’s not his voice or harmonica playing, to be quite honest with you, though they suit HIS music).

And people, I LOVE the new feature on WordPress. It’s the reason why there’s like a thousand links on every post I make lately, because it’s so easy that it’s just one press of a button. Zemanta is the name of the feature (I think…). It really is cool.

Other than Dylan, I’ve been in a sort of Paul McCartney-mood as well today, which I rarely is, because…well, I just ain’t it that often. But EVERYONE should hear “Here Today” by Paul McCartney from the 1982 album called “Tug Of War” (a great album all together, really, which I’m lucky enough to have on vinyl). It’s the song dedicated to John Lennon after his death and really made because of Paul’s grief to the death of his dear friend John.

Question:

Have you heard “Here Today”? And either way if you’ve heard it before or just listened to it NOW (it’s like two minutes long), what did you think of it? (Press the name “Here Today” above to get to the song on YouTube. Great quality of the sound there as well!)


Remember I’ll Always Be True


Title: The Beatles – All My Loving

I thought I’d start using these polls that are use-able on WordPress now, so here it is one:
