James Taylor – Fire & Rain

Just yesterday monring they let me know you were gone….Fire & Rain is one of James Taylor’s biggest hits. The song was written during his addiction to drugs and after hearing news of a close friends passing. Music sometimes is often best created when the artist has to go deep within themselves, sometimes even reaching rock bottom.  When I hear this song I think of a close friend no longer here, no not a friend a brother. I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain b, RIP ROB V see you soon bHere is the live version with a very young James as seen below

PRESS RELEASE: Nytmare’s Insomniaddict CD Release Party @ The Lucky Dog Music Hall

WORCESTER, MA – Worcester hip hop artist Nytmare has announced that his CD Release Party for his first full length CD, Insomniaddict, will be held on Saturday, October 10 at The Lucky Dog Music Hall, 89 Green Street, beginning at 9 PM.

After more than 10 years on the Worcester music scene, Nytmare says it’s about time that he shared his music beyond the scope of a live performance. “I’ve had tons of music finished for years,” he explains. “I just went through my archives, and took some of my favorites that I wanted to put out there and encapsulate.”

Featuring 15 tracks written between 1999 and 2009, Insomniaddict covers vast musical grounds, from underground to industrial and everything in between. It personifies Nytmare’s journey through 10 years of life, documenting raw emotion unapologetically and unabashedly. One moment, you’re caught in clever, and sometimes lewd, wordplay. The next, you’re in deep, philosophical thought over political metaphors. Insomniaddict’s only consistency is its ability to keep transforming into something else. It’s just not what you think it is.

“To me, these songs are Polaroids, thoughts, feelings and ideas from a specific time and place,” he adds. “For me, through music, I can genuinely capture a snapshot of a moment in time.”

Scheduled for the night of Saturday, October 10, the Insomniaddict Release Party guarantees any patron who walks in the doors of The Lucky Dog a copy of Nytmare’s first CD. “This night is about people who appreciate music that resonates and means something after all is said and done,” says Nytmare of the show’s lineup, which will feature musical acts across many genres. “It’s about crossing boundaries.”

The evening will open with a set by Spit Supreme, a homegrown solo MC known for his smooth flow and sharp lyricism, followed by the high energy hip hop duo Cocaine Robots, who never disappoint with great throwback tracks and satirical lyrics. Next up will be Shane Hall & The TickleBomb Orchestra, an eclectic and experimental collective fusing the sounds of folk, rock, and hip hop, then a performance by Evince Ethos, a symphonic metal band led by a captivating female vocalist. Nytmare hits the scene last, closing the night with a set arsenal sampling music from Insomniaddict as well as unreleased tracks from his archives.

“I’m looking forward to unveiling Insomniaddict and celebrating with old and new fans alike,” noted Nytmare. “I’m also excited to be involved in a show that really highlights the diversity that exists in the Worcester music scene.”

Donovan – Atlantis/Goodfellas (Billy Batts)

donovan-a-60s-icon-391728

Way down below the ocean………where I wanna be. This song is a fucking classic, I heard this first on Goodfellas and fell in love with it. Maybe it was the scene where Joe Pesci fucks up Billy Bats in the bar, or maybe it’s the hypnotic melody Donovan provides, either way I love it. Paul McCartney does background vocals on Atlantis and to me if you got a Beatle anywhere around you, its going to be epic. Click below to listen to the classic.
 
Also for your enjoyment the classic “Billy Batts” scene from Goodfellas………now go home and get your fucking shine box! Shit’s gangsta.

Seals & Crofts – Summer Breeze

Grab a peach Nantucket Nectar, light the grape dutch and sit back. This song is a classic the melody intoxicates the listener right from the beginning. I don’t mess with a lot of Seals & Crofts but I definitely mess with this.
