No Way Out


Talking about music... I seem to find no way out of this no man's land that has music by its throat nowadays. I find Spotify and mp3's shallow experiences compared to buying a physical product with a sleeve, liner notes etc. On the other hand, I don't find it very meaningful either to buy CD's when I can listen for free on Spotify... I'm caught right in between and the result is that my musical universe has been destroyed. That's the sad fact.

Why...


... doesn't anyone use synthesizers this way anymore? This is the way they're supposed to be used in rock music; Sweeping pads and arrangements that carries the music. The pinnacle of the symbiosis between analog and digital.

A Link In The Chain - Pete Seeger, 1919-2014




Oh, had I a golden thread
And needle so fine
I'd weave a magic strand
Of rainbow design
Of rainbow design

In it I would weave the bravery
Of women giving birth
In it I would weave the innocence
Of children over all the earth
Children of all earth

Far over the waters
I'd reach my magic band
To every city
Through every single land
Through every land

Show my brothers and my sisters
My rainbow design
Bind up this sorry world
With hand and heart and mind
Hand and heart and mind

Far over the waters
I'd reach my magic band
To every human being
So they would understand
So they'd understand

Oh, If I had a golden thread
And needle so fine
I'd weave a magic strand
Of rainbow design
Of rainbow design...


Pete Seeger
