[NSFW] Favorite Music #2

Recommended Posts

I love that song, but have to admit I'd not noticed any sub-text i.e. what's depicted in the video. Mind you, it's quite hard to make out what he's singing in places.

Yeah I must say I was shocked when I saw the video. I had no idea! I knew it was about a relationship and I knew that he figured his church wouldn't approve, but that could be anything. Now I'm curious about what was supposed to be in the box...

I think these songs is about 10 years old by now perhaps older.  Even old songs are worth listen to now and then.  Thanks for posting these music videos. :)

 

 

These songs has Swedish lyrics and I know there is an English version for each song, but due to the limitation of posting more videos than 3 videos here I'll only post those videos that has Swedish lyrics.

They had a feature on the news tonight about the Edmund Fitzgerald. It was the largest cargo ship ever built for freshwater. It was launched in 1958 and went down during a storm on Lake Superior in November, 1975. Canada's greatest folk musician, Gordon Lightfoot decided the story was a perfect match to a tune he had just written. The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald has never been forgotten thanks to Gordon's tune. And you really don't want to fuck with Lake Superior in November. That puppy is over 400m (1300 ft) deep. IT IS COLD.

RIP Leonard Cohen. You truly deserve the Nobel Prize for literature. Cohen attended McGill University in Montreal writing poetry. He later switched to writing songs, where his poetry continued. He passed away at the age of 82 on November 7th. Here's the wiki article on Cohen: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonard_Cohen

Here's a version he recorded a few years ago. He continued to perform, doing a concert tour last year.

In my opinion the second video, which he recorded in London at the age of 75 is better than the original. It's a VEVO video though, so you may not be able to play it.
