Llorando – From Mulholland Drive

This is the most beautiful song from one of the most amazing movies I’ve ever seen. This song takes me to a place where everything is possible and nothing is certain. I hope it does the same for you.

Interesting Note: Rebekah Del Rio, who popularized the Spanish version and who received her first recording contract on the basis of the song, stated that Director David Lynch flew to Nashville where she was living, and she sang the song for him once and did not know he was recording her. Lynch wrote a part for her in the film and used the version she sang for him in Nashville.

Flaming Lips – The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

The Flaming Lips released a very artistic and very NSFW video of Erykah Badu singing Roberta Flack’s The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face while Badu’s little sister Nayrok appears in the video. It’s pretty bizarre but definitely artistic. Apparently Badu wanted to see the edit before it was released and the Flaming Lips released it without showing it to her. The new version features Amanda Palmer and it’s great (but also NSFW).

I managed to find the original video and really like it, but I see how it could offend a lot of people.



What a Long Strange Trip It’s Been

I decided to take a break from my Saturday work and relax with South Park and then some music. After trying a few of the contemporary radio stations and being disappointed by the drivel being purveyed there, I looked up some good classic music on YouTube. Behind Blue Eyes led to One Toke Over the Line led to Jerry Garcia and Traffic performing Dear Mr. Fantasy led to Truckin’, which caused me to write this post. There’s something about Truckin’ that gets to you when you’re neurons are aligned to receive the message. It’s hard to put my finger on exactly what it is, but greatness and rebellion (the gentle 60s version) and the long view of life are all there.
