For best results, close your eyes, and listen to these harmonies:

A pop song about renunciation...

"Do not force others, including children, by any means whatsoever, to adopt your views, whether by authority, threat, money, propaganda, or even education." - Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh

"The uprooting of identity is seen by the noble ones as pleasurable; but this contradicts what the whole world sees." (Snp 3.12)

"To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead" - Thomas Paine

And it kind of goes without saying, I'm still listening to Devin Townsend. But now my son too has been listening to Devin Townsend in the evenings too. His album Ghost is wonderful to fall asleep to...

I had to go to work so missed most of the Olympic close. I'm sure Retro enjoyed the Pet Shop boys...
It was good to hear some of John Lennon's classics, and Ray Davies singing Waterloo Sunset...



Coincidentally, the first 45 I ever owned was "Lola"...

I missed it too.
Waterloo Sunset is a great song!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Thanks, Ben, The Kinks unfortunately, faded into obscurity despite their ground-breaking music, perhaps the first proto-metal from 1964.



That song is partly notable in musician circles for the session musicians variously rumoured to have played on the session, or not, including the late Jon Lord (later of Deep Purple) on piano and Jimmy Page on guitar (who has denied it):

Kinks brilliant.

A bit different and ahead of their time with 1965 bit of soft rock (crank up the volume to 11):

One more from 1966:

Thanks Tilt. Another great "forgotten" 60's group. Beck and Clapton on guitars according to what I can glean from the internet. Sounds like a Beck solo...

How about the Yardbirds in Blow Up. Now Beck/Page...



Very funny performance by Beck, doing the Townsend thing with his amps and guitar while Page rocks on...

I didn't get to see them, but I did enjoy seeing this picture, complete with trademark pointy hats that made them look suspiciously like the Olympic stadium itself.

Beck was a bit more jazzy ten year or so later when I saw him with Jan Hammer, etc.

At this moment nothing, but I do sometimes listen to an ambient internet radio station I can recommend: Goove Salad

Remembering Simon, my brother-in-law, who passed away while staying with us in March, I recalled this song.

A particularly unbuddhist song, appealing to hatred and violence:



Of my favorite band from old times: Virgin Steele. Here is a cool photo of them:
