REM Everybody Hurts

Unread post by antipodean » Thu Oct 01, 2020 11:20 am

I was enjoying this video by one of my favorite bands, when I noticed it was part of a Live Aid type concert in Hyde Park London, the weekend prior to 7/7.
Which I thought would have been a good terrorist target.
(go to 4min & 44sec)

When your day is long
And the night
The night is yours alone
When you're sure you've had enough
Of this life
Well hang on
Don't let yourself go
'Cause everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes
Sometimes everything is wrong
Now it's time to sing along
When your day is night alone (hold on)
(Hold on) if you feel like letting go (hold on)
If you think you've had too much
Of this life
Well, hang on
'Cause everybody hurts
Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts
Don't throw your hand
Oh, no
Don't throw your hand
If you feel like you're alone
No, no, no, you're not alone
If you're on your own
In this life
The days and nights are…

Here's from 1983

DEMON-THE PLAGUE:
Begin the madness
Tear down the sign
Ideals and values
They used to keep us in line
Turn a blind eye to jobless millions
Queues of wreckage to be broken down
Leaders feed us their solutions
Mistakes the death cart clears away
Beware of the... Plague
A pig for power
Misplacing trust
Science moves fact to fiction
Disturbing dust
All this in the name of progress
While our existence is sold downstream
Religion plays upon the ruin
While Manson throws away the key
Beware of the... Plague
Don't look at me
I'm not the answer
Look to you
It's where it's at
Don't look at me
I'm not the saviour
It's up to you
To face yourself
What price the future and Orwell's dream
All yours big brother
On twenty two inch screen
The tragedy we bleed human
Can't feed emotion to the zombie brain
And as the rat becomes exhausted
We stand to lose the game
Beware of the... Plague

Manic Street Preachers
"If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next"

The future teaches you to be alone
The present to be afraid and cold
So if I can shoot rabbits
Then I can shoot fascists

Bullets for your brain today
But we'll forget it all again
Monuments put from pen to paper
Turns me into a gutless wonder

And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next

Gravity keeps my head down
Or is it maybe shame
At being so young and being so vain

Holes in your head today
But I'm a pacifist
I've walked La Ramblas
But not with real intent

And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next

And on the street tonight an old man plays
With newspaper cuttings of his glory days

And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
And if you tolerate this
Then your children will be next
Will be next
Will be next
Will be next

Tom MacDonald - "NO LIVES MATTER"
5,511,361 views
•6 Nov 2020


full link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t86ClLM3ZGY


Lyrics

Hip Hop died, it's full of guys who cannot even rap (facts)
Media dividing us by colors, white or black (facts)
If you believe in Jesus, these days Christians get attacked (facts)
If you don't hate police then everybody thinks you're wack

And everything's so connected
Black Lives Matter got so aggressive
White folks who agree can't support the message
Both sides go to war 'cause they don't respect it
Our social climate from the global tension
Turned to total violence and a whole depression
We could unify and then all go against them
But we let 'em divide us with votes and elections

the music we bump
All about shooting guns and doing drugs
(Ay, whoa) the things that we want
Are promoted subliminally through the songs like
You need a fast car, you need designer clothes
You need a rap star
To tell you to start popping pills
Hit the blunt and go live at the club 'til you're broke

It's all controlled by the elites
Pull fake news all over our screens
Convincing the right to go fight with the left
And distract from the fact it's each other we need, uh
Divided by race and religion
Segregated into teams, uh
You're a white supremacists
If you're not, I guess you ANTIFA

Screaming from the rooftops, beatdown, battered
Turned us on each other, now no lives matter
If we do what the news wants, blood gon' splatter
Turn us on each other 'til no lives matter

Freedom's dead, if you have an opinion, take it back (facts)
People hate the president, if you don't then you trash (facts)
Indoctrinate the nation using news and mainstream rap (facts)
The government abuses us, it's all part of the plan (facts)

And it's so confusing
Black Lives Matter is a valuable movement
But All Lives Matter ain't racist or stupid
It's non-black humans who don't feel included
All colors fall under laws that govern
The whole country and we all suffer
We're all broke and nobody recovers
Until we accept that we're all brothers

the music we make
All about big booties and getting paid
(Ay, whoa) we watch the news
And it fills up our brains
With violence, and riots, and race
Like this is a race war, you need to hate more
Get what you came for
You need some songs about Xanax and violence
So you can escape more

What a vicious cycle we gotta break away from
They control the culture, they control the paper
They're indoctrinating a whole generation
'Til the patriots start to hate the nation

The music we love make us dumb and addicted
The news that we watch is brainwashing the children
The virus is riots and racist conditions
Ain't problems, they're symptoms of life in this system

Screaming from the rooftops, beatdown, battered
Turned us on each other, now no lives matter
If we do what the news wants, blood gon' splatter
Turn us on each other 'til no lives matter

The music will make you dumb
The media makes you hate
And they control 'em both
There ain't no escape
They put the world is a state of chaos
Economy crashing and massive layoffs
Black against white or it's left versus right
Divide and conquer and control is the payoff

Screaming from the rooftops, beatdown, battered
Turned us on each other, now no lives matter
If we do what the news wants, blood gon' splatter
Turn us on each other 'til no lives matter

Dear friends, we are living in very special times. In fact, we are living in times of special madness and craziness. As my band ("The Social Service") re-united during the lockdown of a few months ago, we recorded this (totally improvised) track, live in my studio. As you can hear, we just needed to express our rage & frustration at the utter madness of the times that we're living in. So please excuse the raw & crude sound of this track - we simply HAD to play it straight out of our guts !

http://septclues.com/AUDIO%20FILES/ALL% ... ADNESS.mp3

SPECIAL CASE OF MADNESS

It's a special case
A special case of madness
A special case of madness
What do you want to do?
What do you want to do?
Everyone is asking
Everyone is wondering
It's a special case
A special case of madness
Special case, special case of madness
It's a special case of madness
It's a special case of madness
Special case of madness
Special case of madness
Special case, special case of madness

Don't be fearful - don't be afraid
Everything's going to be alright - after all -_-

Fill the madhouse
Let's fill the madhouse
For this special case of madness!
Of madness
Of madness - of craziness
Fill the madhouse !
Fill the madhouse !
Let's fill the madhouse!
Let's fill the madhouse!
Special case, special case, special case of madness
Special case, special case of madness
Of madness! Of madness! Of maaadness!
Special case of madness
Fill the madhouse !
Let's fill the madhouse!
Fill the madhouse !
Let's fill the madhouse!
Let's fill the madhouse!
For this special case
Of madness
Fill the madhouse, fill the madhouse !
Let's fill the madhouse, fill the madhouse !

Great song, Simon, with a great intensity. Reminds me a little of the early 80s solo stuff by Tom Verlaine, of Television.

Why, thanks Fred :) - I used to be a bit of a fan of Television & Tom Verlaine (yup, I'm that old)... ^_^

THE SOCIAL SERVICE - our stage videos

Dear friends,

In the last few months, I have gradually (and finally) been uploading the 'stage videos' of my 5-piece band - "The Social Service" - on my Youtube channel.

These are videos that I put together with various Creative Commons material back in the good ol' days (around 2005/2006) when we were playing various venues around Italy.
(Even though the video & animation material I used were copyright-free, I contacted most of the authors at the time to ask their permission to use them for artistic / non-commercial purposes).

Image

To view & listen to all the 15 music videos just click the Youtube playlist link below. Hope you'll enjoy - and maybe even dance a little! :)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qP-DAW- ... cg&index=1

Or -if you prefer - view them one by one using the below links:

ONE DAY

STRANGE

NIAGARA

WILD

TIME OUT

WASTE OF TIME

LOOKING GOOD

SILLY PAIN

SPEED

DROWNING

ALIVE

NO FOOL

AMERICAL

TAKE A BREAK

WHAT MAN


Now, you may argue that only a few of these songs are about "exposing the truth" - but I hope I may be forgiven for this since I've been spending all of my non-music-making time doing just that, right here on this forum - for well over a decade...
