Posted the new chapter of Space Pirates today.

Something I have seen in ninnui' journal

1. Light a candle, light a votive. Step down, step down. REM, It's the end of the world as we know it

2. I hear babies crying, I watch them grow / They'll learn much more than I'll never know Louis Armstrong (and others), What a wonderful world

3. "What are you trying to find, I don't care, I'm not kind / I've bludgeoned your sailors, I've spat out their keepsakes / Oh it's ashes to ashes, but always the ocean,"

4. And everyone has memories of the night that melted stone / The neighbour's nightgown, the screaming on the phone Dar Williams, This was Pompeii

5. I feel my wings have broken in your hands / I feel the words unspoken inside

6. I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert / But I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime Big Country, In A Big Country

7. I was out of line; I was out of place / Out of time to save face Soul Asylum, Without a Trace

8. Er war so exaltiert / Because er hatte Flair / Er war ein Virtuose / War ein Rockidol Falco, Rock me Amadeus

9. From the light on high, a chance to change your fate. Forgiveness falling down on those who chose to wait. Remy Zero, Prophecy

10. If there was ever any thought of what would happen in that bed tonight. There was no question now.

Current Mood: headache

1. REM, It's the End of the World as We Know It. Somewhere I have downloaded a SGA vid to that song, and my roommate and I used to watch it to cheer ourselves up.

Yep. I know that SGA vid you mention, someone asked me to host this on my streamload site :)

#7: "Without a trace" by Soul Asylum (a little private salut to one of your favourite fandoms ;) ?)

and #2 is "What a wonderful world" by Louis Armstrong (that's really a favourite of mine)

oh, and #9 is part of song called "This is Pompeji", but the artist/group slipped my mind :/

Right on all counts. I have never heard Louis Armstrong's interpretation of "What a wonerful world" (is that the original version?), I only have the version by Babalu and the one by Joey Ramone.

I only know the version of Armstrong, and I strongly guess it's the original... But the one from Joey Ramone I know too.. quite good one (typically Joey Ramone :) )

#6 is called "in a big country", the artist is big country... #9 is by remy zero, 's called "prophecy", I think..?
Illmanillman on June 4th, 2005 01:47 pm (UTC)
Again, both right :) BTW, I only noticed like now that your main icon is animated. Usually I view lj in Opera and there it doesn't move, but when I used a different computer today I noticed that it's even better than I thought. Great icon!

Ha! HA! Found out what #5 is.. because I somehow thought it probably was from one of the artists already mentioned, I found out that the song is by Remy Zero, and is called "Save me"! There: done!!

Congrats, genius. Just how big is your mp3 collections? ;)

Totally random: I love your flood of new icons.

naah, not my collection.. my housemate is a dj, so there's a natural accumulation of cd's and mp3's just a room away.. ;)

in fact I owe it to you that my icon collection grew so much.. :)
