This is actually the theme song to my radio show.... don't forget to right click to listen in another tab or window. Click here for Poe's "Haunted"

And for the lyrics

"Haunted" By Poe
 

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...
Come here
Pretty please
Can you tell me where I am
You won't you say something
I need to get my bearings
I'm lost
And the shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...

Don't cry,
There's always a way
Here in November in this house of leaves
We'll pray
Please, I know it's hard to believe
To see a perfect forest
Through so many splintered trees
You and me
And these shadows keep on changing

And I'm haunted
By the lives that I have loved
And actions I have hated
I'm haunted
By the promises I've made
And others I have broken
I'm haunted
By the lives that wove the web
Inside my haunted head

Hallways... always

I'll always want you
I'll always need you
I'll always love you

And I will always miss you

Ba da pa pa ba da pa pa...

Come here
No I won't say please
One more look at the ghost
Before I'm gonna make it leave
Come here
I've got the pieces here
Time to gather up the splinters
Build a casket for my tears

I'm haunted
(By the lives that I have loved)
I'm haunted
(By the promises I've made)
I'm haunted
By the hallways in this tiny room
The echos there of me and you
The voices that are carrying this tune

Ba da pa pa...

Hey, Marty, I used to duet the grass roots song, cause i was married and the guy wanted to date me real bad. But I couldn't..... We would talk and talk, but inevitably.... i was still married.

Back in the day...

I know that song by heart..... as well as Tempation Eyes... Grass Roots Rock!

I've seen the Grass Roots live 7 or 8 times! They rock!

"Lady pleasure with the sunshine eyes
Draw your magick circle to the ruin of my size.."

Interesting thing, I can't find the rest of the lyrics to the above song anywhere (Lady Pleasure - The Grass Roots). Used to have it on cd but had to get rid of about 900 cd's when I moved cross country. I miss that song.

It starts:

"I could tell by the way she smiled
she intended to stay awhile
She walked through the door in her cowboy hat
sat on the floor with a siamese cat
She said it with her eyes
everything's fine..."

I remember a few other scant lyrics here and there like...

"The world has a rhythm all its own
You can tell by the seasons
See it in the sun..."

Ahhh...what a song....what a nice feeling to remember...

Here is a song that I can relate to, but not to the full extent. It's about a girl who is raped by her own father and the outcome is an OBE. She has out of body experiences to cope with such trauma. Her spiritual side took over...... to save her life. And we wonder why people experience amnesia, post traumatic stress syndrome, etc.

Here is the youtube video....

Lyrics

"Sleep" by Stabbing Westward

She's been here so many times before
She can't remember
When she last felt anything at all
But this fear and anger
She stares intently at the door,
Listens for his footsteps
She knows exactly what's in store
And the knowing makes it worse

Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
So this hell could finally end

When he calls her daddy's little girl,
She doesn't hear him
When he crushes her
She can't feel
Her screams are silent
Hides in the corner of her mind
Where she plays contentetly
She leaves this night more far behind
She escapes inside her dreams

Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
So this hell could finally end

Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
So this hell could finally end

Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
Floating high above her bed
Staring at her father's head
Wishing one of them were dead
So this hell could finally end

.... Jill ... (joke, thought I'd better warn you - do atheists die, or merely keep coming back until they've learnt a little more .... ?

....ah, MollyB how nice to be noticed and Don Quixote too - coincidentally I had coffee in the cafe Don Quixote in Holborn yesterday morning at 8.45 am; not wishing to accrue too much, I fear that it was Marty and Sunflower who were kind enough to doff me 'Sirra', or some such; I am a mere vessel for whatever the Great Spirit, blessed be S/He chooses to pour into me ...

.... and doesn't D-Q all end in disillusionment and tears ... though maybe this is a chance to right that wrong ...

Humorously yours

Good question Paul, I have absolutely no idea what happens to an Atheist when they die.... but i sure bet they are surprised when they still exist. LOL

I think it would be scary to think, this is it. That is all..... game over for good. How sad.

I have seen to much, to know better. Or I am crazy....If so, i prefer to remain crazy!

But, God has shown me proof..... It's not an illusion. People walk earth still, because divine intervention happened through me (i was the interpreter). After that, all questions were answered.

Music.... it has answers too..... notice how some remind us of exact events? Meant not to forget? I can never forget some things, because of beautiful music.

Music, they say, is the food of love : and all love comes from the Divine.

The Sufi sage, I think it was, Hazrat Inayat Khan, wrote that everything in creation is music, as indeed it is, isn't it, through the Eternal Hum that vibrates through us all ...

.. and the Word that was in the Beginning had its own sound, must have !

Hello Sir Paul (you, not McCartney!),

I guess I always felt Don Quixote (and the show Man of La Mancha for that matter) ended in triumph. Certainly tears, but I felt no disillusionment. After all, can't we call see giants in windmills at times? We are all on a quest of the Spirit and can never really be disillusioned unless we buy into the illusion itself.

Also, speaking of everything is music, the seven modes of music was a passion of mine for awhile. Corresponding to the seven ancient planets, each with it's own musical vibration, everything that exists is sound. The Universe is an eternal symphony and life is a dance.

Reminds me...

"As the world keeps turning,
and we keep on searching,
for seven circles twisting
round these moments of our lives.
Dancing on the edge of night.
Everything we've lost is coming back again.
All I see,
will always be."

---"Seven Circles" The Tea Party

Ok...enough waxing poetic...gotta get to work! Nice talking to you again, Paul.

Hi Jill!

Since you are a rock lover like me, with a Metaphysical twist, you really would LOVE The Tea Party! If you get a chance, check them out!!! They have been a very distinct, beautiful part of my path.

Take care and I hope all is well!

Absolutely MollyB, thank you for restoring my faith in the Imagined World of Chivalry and just doing what is right, even if we know that there will be no end to the trouble possibly stirred up as a result ... (a sombre pun!) ...

and Resonations with your Resoning !!

ps, and, oddly enough, there is a part of London, not far from that cafe, called, "Seven Dials" !!!

Reminds me of the end of "Camelot" (Lerner and Lowe) when King Arthur is so bewildered. Everything has gone SO wrong, and he feels the new order of chivalry he worked so hard to create must have been for nothing. The roundtable is dead, the knights are bent on revenge, his son hates him, he has to fight Lance at sunrise, etc, etc. Then, through young Tom of Warrick, he knows what he has done will be remembered throughout time, and he knows everything is exactly as it was supposed to be.

The end shot of that movie, with Arthur standing on the hill and the sun coming up behind him....gets me everytime...

Dear MollyB - wow, yes... sounds like we are kindred spirits here ....

King Arthur is never far from my mind, or soul, or whatever that part of us is that seeks to make sense of our lives & journeys ... so then have you read,

The Once and Future King ? ( T H White)

I was born not far from where Malory did his scribbling ... I could talk for hours about all of that stuff ...

Excalibur the film wasn't at all bad I felt, nor was, First Knight (Richard Gere & Sean Connery) ... I also have some poems ...

I read that book so many years ago...is that not the one where at the end Arthur is talking to Pelinore about (paraphrased here) 'we are all less than a drop in the great blue motion of the endless sea, but some of the drops sparkle..' I do not have the book anymore as I gave my entire Arthurian collection to my brother when I moved.

It's interesting we are talking about this now. I was going through some photographs recently and found a picture of 2 paintings I had done 6 years or so ago. One was Arthur and one was Guenevere and they were ghosts. When they were hung them side by side their faces conjoined became as one face and the lake and the castle were in the background. I always loved those paintings and I have no idea what happened to them! My move across country is pretty much a blur because I went from a house full of books, records, cd's, paintings and other various objects down to two suitcases and a box in less than six weeks. My stuff is scattered all over the world, lol!

I fear I compare all film versions of the Arthurian legend to 1967's Camelot! One of my favorite movies of all time. Richard Harris has always been a favorite of mine and he just shines as Arthur in the movie and also in the stage production (which they broadcast on the BBC years ago). The speech at the end of Act I...wow...it's as though I'm really watching Arthur and it just blows me away.

And in the interest of thread continuity....

"In that dawn
in that gloom,
more than love met its doom.
In the dying candle's gleem
came the sundown of a dream.
Guenevere
Guenevere
In that dim,
mournful year.
Saw the men she
held most dear,
go to war for
Guenevere..."

How so fascinating MollyB ....

I have tried to watch Camelot the film many times, but could not get through it - aroused too many tears ... Richard Harris was a great (Welsh, I thnk) actor ... and his, Mac Arthur Park was good too

Your paintings sound magical ,lovely; shame you lost the creative arena of others (sorry, could not find other words for that, if they are wrong, pls forgive me)

I have the T H White so will check the words. Let me know if yu'd like to see any of my Arthur poems, but would not want to spoil your own picture (s), at all x

Namaste to you, everyone and dear

Arthur

.... Checked .... dear MollyB ... now before I go on, did you know, I had forgotten there was a follow on to Once & Future .. K .., which was, 'The Book of Merlyn', also by T H White .... now as to last lines .... we do not want to give away last lines to those who might not wish to know them, perhaps not having read the full texts, yet, so, a warning, here they come, after the space below ...







The Once and Future King:

Last paragraph:

THE BEGINNING

(yes, that is the last one, though the preceding paragraph does not seem to precede it, and now, how funny, 'cos we are citing the text, as, Merlyn, in the story, lives, ie, from forwards to backwards (which is how he knows the future ...))

If you'd like the preceding paragraph, happy to supply - it is all so wonderful, though sombre, as I said)

The Book of Merlyn:
Last paragraph:

" Here ends the book of the Onetime King, written with much toil and effort between the years 1936 and 1942, when the nations were striving in fearful warfare. Here also begins - if perchance a man may in future time survive the pestilence and continue the task he has begun - the hope of the Future King. Pray for Thomas Malory, Knight, and his humble disciple, who now voluntarily lays aside his books to fight for his kind.

Hey Molly,
I am listening to The tea Party right now. Listening to Heaven Coming Down, not bad, will have to listen to a couple others too.  But yes... definitely up my alley. Thank You!

I am getting sick now. Figures.... have white spots all over my throat. Fun fun.... Dang it.
Already had the tonsils out, so who knows. Cannot swallow very well.... dang it.

Here is a song I absolutely love:

Conjure One - Extraordinary Ways  <-------right click to open vid in new window

Lyrics

What I have is nothing to my name
No property to speak of
And no trophy for my game
Intangible and worthless
My assets on the page
My coffers are empty
Any offer of safety has faded away
But what I have
What I have is

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

That makes me lucky
God, I'm lucky, so much luckier than I ever thought I'd be
'Cause what I have (what I have)
Means so very little to this world
A promise that I kept and a bridge that I saved before it burned
The sacrifice that I made
Brought me to my knees
A choice that cost me everything and set somebody else free
But what I have
Is the value that you see in these things

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

That makes me lucky
God I'm lucky, so much luckier than I ever thought I'd be
'Cause what I have
Is the value that you see in these things

And everytime I forget those things you bring them right back to me

With your patience
When I'm blinding mad
And your passion
When I'm really, really bad
And your eyes
Taking in everything I am
And your body and soul and the way that you know
How I treasure you

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

That makes me lucky
God I'm so lucky
So much luckier than I ever thought I'd be

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

I actually have the old movie, the Raven, but I am also a Byrds fan.... with Rogar McGuinn, they sang some really great songs like Turn Turn Turn, Mr. Tamborine Man, and one I absolutely loved just as much:

Eight Miles High.....By the Byrds. <---- click to watch

Lyrics

 Eight miles high and when you touch down
You’ll find that it’s stranger than known
Signs in the street that say where you’re going
Are somewhere just being their own

Nowhere is there warmth to be found
Among those afraid of losing their ground
Rain gray town known for it’s sound
In places small faces unbound

Round the squares huddled in storms
Some laughing some just shapeless forms
Sidewalk scenes and black limousines
Some living some standing alone

We cannot forget about Tom Petty, While I am not crazy about the lyrics.... PLEASE watch the video... it's uber kewl. Paul reminded me about this one because he said ASK ALICE..... Well, here is Alice again, down the rabbit hole. It's so cute, twisted and funny, with a good message that say's if it doesn't feel right, chances are IT's NOT. lol

Click here for video

"Don't come around here no more" by Tom Petty

Chorus
Don't come around here no more
Don't come around here no more
Whatever you're looking for
Hey, don't come around here no more

I've given up, I've given up --
I've given up on waiting any longer
I've given up, on this love getting stronger

I don't feel you anymore
You darken my door
Whatever you're looking for
Hey, don't come around here no more

I've given up, I've given up
I've given up, you tangle my emotions
I've given up, honey please admit it's over

(Repeat Chorus)

Stop walking down my street
Who do you expect to meet?
Whatever you're looking for
