I'm a guy who lifts weights, guzzles beer, likes boxing and other barbaric shit...

...but I'm also an introvert who overthinks *everything* and can be moved deeply by music.

You fellas know I'm very antiwar, and today I wanna share a really beautiful song.

Listen with headphones and after a couple drinks and you really *feel* this song's essence.



Quote :
Took a boat over Lake Geneva
It was raining all night long
We were lucky and we saw no enemy
And came from Switzerland, poor refugees
Far from the guns of war
We said goodbye to it all
They brought us into a nurse's station
Half a mile behind the lines
Oh Lord, how my heart was breaking
To see the children, and the walking wounded
Hoping for a ticket home
And say goodbye to it all
I woke up on a cold blue morning
To see her there, standing right beside me
Long years since I left her at the borderline
And how she found me I'll never know
But we decided there and then
To say goodbye to it all
To it all
Say goodbye to it all
Say goodbye to it all
Took a train from Paris to the ocean
Found a small hotel by the coast
As we walked along the beaches of Normandy
We came to Juno, Omaha and Gold
And whispered a prayer for the boys
Who said goodbye to it all
Now we've got our own place by the water
And I have a job in the old hotel
She is ready and she's hoping for a daughter
Well I don't mind, we've made our choice
We've got all the time in the world
We said goodbye to it all
We said goodbye to it all
Bye to it all
Say goodbye to it all
Say goodbye to it all
Say goodbye to it all
Say goodbye to it all
Say goodbye

Very deep lyrics if you pause to catch the meaning.

Fight war, not wars.
Fight war, not wars.
Fight war, not wars.
Fight war, not wars.
Fight war, not wars.
Fight war, not wars.
Fight war, not wars.
Fight war, not wars.
Fight war, not wars.
Fight war, not wars.
Fight war, not wars.



Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerer of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to Mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds...
Oh Lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their judgment day comes, yeah!

Now in darkness, world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of Judgment, God is calling
On their knees the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings...
Oh Lord, yeah!

Sag mir, wo die Blumen sind, wo sind sie geblieben?
Sag mir, wo die Blumen sind, was ist geschehn?
Sag mir, wo die Blumen sind, Mädchen pflückten sie geschwind.
Wann wird man je verstehn? Wann wird man je verstehn?


Sag mir, wo die Mädchen sind, wo sind sie geblieben?
Sag mir, wo die Mädchen sind, was ist geschehn?
Sag mir, wo die Mädchen sind, Männer nahmen sie geschwind.
Wann wird man je verstehn? Wann wird man je verstehn?

Sag mir, wo die Männer sind, wo sind sie geblieben?
Sag mir, wo die Männer sind, was ist geschehn?
Sag mir, wo die Männer sind, zogen aus, der Krieg beginnt.
Wann wird man je verstehn? Wann wird man je verstehn?


Sag, wo die Soldaten sind, wo sind sie geblieben?
Ja, sag, wo die Soldaten sind, was ist geschehn?
Sag, wo die Soldaten sind, über Gräber weht der Wind.
Wann wird man je verstehn? Wann wird man je verstehn?


Sag mir, wo die Gräber sind, wo sind sie geblieben?
Sag mir, wo die Gräber sind, was ist geschehn?
Sag mir, wo die Gräber sind, Blumen blühn im Sommerwind.
Wann wird man je verstehn? Wann wird man je verstehn?


Sag mir, wo die Blumen sind, wo sind sie geblieben?
Sag mir, wo die Blumen sind, was ist geschehn?
Sag mir, wo die Blumen sind, Mädchen pflückten sie geschwind.
Wann wird man je verstehn? Wann wird man je verstehn?

You'll have to explain that to me, I'm afraid. The music is thin, the recording quality is poor, but not poor enough to hide the weaknesses in the singing voice.

If you remember the "Rumble In The Jungle", this will take you straight back!

Thanks for asking, I will try.

It is perfectly understandable that you can't comprehend the piece of music above. I would expect nothing else, it clearly does not carry any meaning for you.

The recording quality is poor, the voice is not the strongest, these aspects are irrelevant to me. Brendan asked for "songs that moved you deeply", for me, the violin and clarinet evoke perfectly the landscape and people of Epirus, and by association, the people and landscapes of Sfakia and south-west Crete. Both are a warrior like people, with huge hearts, both landscapes are wild and mountainous, this piece of music transports me to that feeling of arriving in Greece after disembarking from the ferry from Italy, knowing I have returned to the place where people are real, and still connected to the land, a place of intoxicating smells and sounds, and great food, no longer in the land of shallow plastic people with big egos.

The name Anton, or Antonis is how I am known around Sfakia, my english name is Tony. Spent a lot of time down there walking in the mountains and coastal paths (about 2 years in total) living in caves and on the beaches, finding odd jobs to extend my stay there, because spending another day in that region is infinitely preferable to returning to the drab, depressing UK. The first time there, age about 21, I went with my girlfriend for a week, but soon realised I could not return, so after saying goodbye to the girlfriend at the airport, managed to eek out an extra 8 weeks there, this did not go down well with the girlfriend's family Laughing Last occasion I managed to live there for 6 months. Hopefully one day I can go there and not return.  


Indian music also moves me deeply, more deeply, for reasons probably too deep and personal to discuss here.

Yes, I am aware that most if not everyone here who click on the following "gems" will find them intolerable, none more so than yourself. Western music is all about the voice, because that is all there is, the shallow culture does not produce works that touch the soul in the way these do. Appearance, ego, a polished product designed to generate revenue define western music, some of the charm of the tracks below is the fact that these qualities play no part, sure, most are poor recordings, which is unfortunate, but these are from the 50's and 60's, Indian music today lacks the soulfullness of the past and is in decline sadly.

I have included some of the comments to demonstrate these are not totally without merit, to some at least.


The last 2 tracks by Shobha Gurtu are likely more accessable to a western ear. I can't express in words the greatness of Shobha Gurtu's voice in her earlier years, her later music, not so much.

Αντωνης.




beaitiful Tappa. Thanks for this rare gem.
Awesome, thanks for sharing this gem
I can listen to this Tappa forever!

Superlative! what a voice! what a voice ! what a voice!
Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
Very great singing by sideshwari Devi. It takes decades of practice to reach this perfection.

JUST LISTEN AND GO IN TRANQILITY.FENTASTIC RENDERING.

Anton,

Indian or Greek doesn't matter - here are the characteristics of the music you like:

* traditional sounding: it's important to you that the musicians play on old instruments

* small numbers of instruments, each producing a thin sound (fat sounds tend to have multiple sources, like a chord: to produce a good fat sound on a synthesiser requires 3 sound wave generators)

* wailing style of singing

* droning, high pitch thin instrument

* single thin drum with rapid attack and long decay (explanation link)

* you're favoured music also has a distinct tempo

* you like your tracks to be 6-10 minutes, and to have limited variation for the duration of the song

I don't share your taste, but it's rare to stumble across someone who thinks their tastes are varied - but who are actually selecting the same music from completely different sources, so thank you for sharing!

Let me promote my choice. It is an ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT song, and Michael performed it to perfection.

"If you want to make the world a better place take a look at yourself and make a change" - not many songs have better lines than that IMO.

Remember: when you see people who have lost a limb or a sense (e.g. sight or sound), you can see their injury - but there are a huge number of people walking around - and probably some of the people who you think you know, who have deep and debilitating wounds on the inside which you cannot see. Don't ever pass up an opportunity to encourage someone or to inspire someone. As the song says, take a look at yourself as well: will your dreams die with you? Following your dreams will turn you into an inspired person - and the world would be better if there were more inspired people in it.

Even now, 32 years on, I STILL have to fight back the tears on every hearing. Thank you for the music, Michael.

Not at all, it is true I like traditional music, the rest of what you write is simply wrong, here are 5 more tracks picked at random from my collection, have fun trying to categorize these into a list  lol!

It's very clear that the thing that's most important to you is that the music be simple and not varying very much.

I think you might like this page - it's on online music sequencer I just found. After just a couple of minutes playing with it, I've made a little repeating tune that I like with just 2 instruments. Give it a try!

If I were to categorize your music tastes in a list it would be:-

Micheal Jackson.

Micheal Jackson.

Maybe some other black music.

Micheal Jackson.

Am I close?

2 more to confound your attempts to make a list, Liszt....

No. If you look at his dance moves, they are often exceptional, but some of his music is disappointing, despite always having exceptional musicians working on it. Man In The Mirror is extremely good in multiple dimensions though, and he has done other very good tracks as well.

Hmmm... a single instrument played in the style of two instruments (the two ends of the keyboard), and, in places, sounding a lot like simple sequenced music.

Have you tried the online sequencer I linked in my previous post?

From 1984: the right song at the right time. Before this, most people didn't know the song's subject. After this, everyone did. Crying permitted!
