Dont Dream Its Over

Dont Dream Its Over - Crowded House

~ Another blast from the past. Didn't switch on the car radio all day, and when the fingers accidentally hit the button this timeless song was playing. Its been good many years since I've listened to it or remembered to have listened to it. This is one great song by Crowded House, I liked a few from them, but the lyrics for 'Don't Dream Its Over' just tells so much. This song is still a defining favorite from the past for me.

There is freedom within
There is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a papercup
There's a battle ahead
Many battles are lost
But you'll never see the end of the road
while you're traveling with me
Hey now, hey now
Don't Dream It's Over
~There was a time when the DJ's know your name, especially when you call at 3 am shouting out hello's to everyone sleeping :p. They defined my schooling years, taught me English and made me experience a new world without faces...a much deeper world They were the Internet of those times, of the 80's and 90's. The conversations at school was always about radio programs, especially the great DJ's, the ghost stories and many more. I dont know when I stopped listening to radio shows, maybe when the dj's became celebrities in the outside world and their command of language sunk to a new low, Manglish took the air and well most of the radio stations are filled with junk adverts anyway. Something killed the golden years of radio...but what was it?

I still love Crowded House and their predecessor Split Enz.

I am grateful for having listened to AM Top 40 when I was a teeny bopper in the 60s & 70s because there was so much great the 80s I was watching videos and quit listening to FM radio because the DJs wouldn't SHUT UP! Fm was great because they just played music and kept their pieholes zipped!

So I haven't listened to the radio for over 20 years and now that I can burn my own music I am not interested in Satelite..not one iota.

I wish that there was a way to track every American citizen who listens to asshats like Rush Limbaugh and take away their right to can either let some big fat dickhead do all of your thinkin' for ya or get to vote.
Either or.

Loving the music my friend. What ruined the radio is the same thing that has ruined television..a lack of good taste. Radio was marvelous because your mind did all the focusing, television on the other hand is pure pollution of the visual abilities. Again I'm loving the music and I do not know if we can change the choices of those in charge but we can chose to eliminate the garbage with the slightest power of our the button :) big hug

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
