A tender love song from Joe Pesci.

 


"Men will be proud to say 'I am a European'. We hope to see a day when men of every country will think as much of being a European as of being from their native land." (Winston Churchill)

Love this band, Shearwater. The lead singer is an ornithologist, hence the band name. His lyrics are superb.

Most songs are about the relationship between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom. These are the lyrics to Wildlife in America and they are damning:

Back before
Back in our school days
You were wild-eyed
Before the damage was done
We tasted that fear in our mouths on Sundays
But you know
You know it's not living

When the wildfires
Were burning out on the lawn
You held your arms out
Primed for the ready line
With your crusader cross
And your small-dose amphetamine
Gunning for the hours when the sparks rain down
But you can't remember
Which was the last war
Or who it is now
When every shadow is a Saladin
Look at me

You must be dreaming
We must be dreaming

Now they've gone
Scaled up and on the roads
They roll their heavy ranks over
With an ancient song
"Stay away from old thoughts
Old doubts and old feelings."
But keeping it so far down isn't easy
And you know it's too late
Late for a last war
And it's too late
To back out of (your) real life
Into firelight

You must be dreaming
We must be dreaming

Billy's in position
He's rolling into town
Kicking in the door
That er's never coming down
He feels the slightest murmuration
A shiver in the heat
Skinny dogs and safety glass that's shattered in the street

It looks like diamonds

You've got your mother's eyes
You've got your father's heart
Look what it did to him, did to him, did to him, did to him....

Great sound . Strong words . America seems to have many areas set aside for nature (and people) things can always be better , how you make them better with population growth i've no idea . UK looked into how the national parks / wilderness areas are operated in America  to see if any ideas could be transferred over here . In some areas  you can use offroad bikes/cars etc bit of a free for all . Areas that allow access in 4x4 s on man made track . Nothing was used over here as our areas of national parks are not large enough to allow these sorts of activities to take place .

A "Sweet" track that might have passed a few by. Steve Priest was a very fine bass player. There are so many people that are totally unaware of the quality of the "Sweet" back catalogue.
