Quote of the day: The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing. – Blaise Pascal

Now listening to a brilliant song by San Diego, California rock band ‘Stone Temple Pilots”. Sadly their original & long time lead singer ‘Scott Weiland’ died of a drug overdose on Dec 3, 2015 & he is the one singing on this track. The song’s titled “Kitchenware & Candybars”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTcQ01W_kaA. Robert De Leo (the bands bassist) wrote the chords to the song while out on the road, he was exhausted & homesick so that’s what inspired the tracks melody. I’ve heard rumors the song may be about abortion, Scott (who wrote the songs lyrics) has mentioned it was about betrayal.


Song of the day

Quote of the day: Every animal is related to its own constitution and the consciousness of it. – Chrysippus …
Now listening to a song by British rock legends ‘The Cult’ & it’s titled “Soldier Blue”. To hear the song, into your browser copy & paste this URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nENSDzXv0Rk Lyrics: Yeah, come on now Soldier blue, bloodstained red Hey people, he’s gonna bust your head A real bad dream, yeah, you know it’s true Kiss his boots or you’ll be through Out of the night comes a soldier right Line you up in his gunsight His mind’s exploded, ego’s overloaded Hey children, start-a-runnin’ Soldier blue, love is out of season Soldier blue, yeah, ain’t fighting for no reason, no, no (x2) Well, soldier blue, soldier fright He’s gonna bust up everything in sight A real heavy dude in a killing mood Pack your bags or you’ll be through, you’ll be through, yeah He’s guaranteed to shatter all your dreams (full chorus) I have seen the sunset, the sea on fire Ships burn off the coast of Orion Dreams of peace wait on the horizon, oh yeah Clouds filled with blood rain on the water While nighttime’s fingers clench the light shut Our sister rides the horse, Apocalypse Now is the closing Love has no season, yeah (x2) Come on shake ya sinner (main chorus out). The songs lyrics were inspired by ‘The Sand Creek Massacre’ which was a massacre that occurred on November 29, 1864, when a 675-man force of Colorado U.S. Volunteer Cavalry under the command of U.S. Army Colonel John Chivington (a Methodist preacher) attacked & destroyed a village in Colorado Territory, killing & mutilating an estimated 70–500 Native Americans, about two-thirds of whom were women & children. There was a movie loosely based on this tragic event released in 1970 called Soldier Blue.
