I just saw this video of George Canyon’s wonderful song My Name today evening. This song is so beautiful, it’s about a stillborn baby – a baby who dies on delivery. And it is sung as if from the baby’s viewpoint.
LYRICS TO “MY NAME” BY GEORGE CANYON
It’s cold in here feels like everythingâ€™s upside down
I can feel you talking but I can barely make out the sound
I been kicking around these parts, feels like a year
Iâ€™m gonna change this world if I ever get out of here
She wants to dress me in pink, paintâ€™s my bedroom blue
And I just laugh to myself, cause only I know the truth
This love is my only emotion
Havenâ€™t learned any fear any pain
Itâ€™s kind of funny with all this commotion
I guess theyâ€™ve got me to blame
They donâ€™t even know my name
They donâ€™t even know my name
Well Iâ€™ve never felt so ready, think itâ€™s finally time
Cause that big old world is waiting, and itâ€™s mine all mine
Just then everything got real quiet, it got real bright
And a man took my hand said donâ€™t worry, Mommas gonna be alright
Then he opened the gate, & I followed him in
Said you can wait right here, till itâ€™s your turn again
And his love is the one true emotion
Heaven knows no fear no pain
I never got to set my wheels in motion
They loved me just the same
And they didn’t even know my name
Didnâ€™t even know my name
You loved me just the same
And you didnâ€™t even know my name
A truly wonderful match just got over a few minutes ago. I had just switched the tv on at around 9:40 and it was about 10 minutes into the West Ham vs Tottenham Hotspurs match on ESPN. There is a rivalry between the two London clubs but West Ham were fighting to stay back in the EPL and avoid relegation as they are currently at the last spot. They really needed to win this one and it showed. The Hammers came out with all guns ablaze. On a break Paul Konchesky lobs the ball into Carlos Tevez, who chests it down for Noble to drill home from 22 yards. Later in the second half, Tevez, who is playing his socks off, scores a wonderful goal with a looping freekick. The celebrations are wild as the Argentinian jumps into the arms of the Hammers’ supporters. The second half is another matter as Spurs take matters into their own hands. Aaron Lennon is brought down by Bowyer in the West Ham penalty box; striker Jermaine Defoe converts. Dimitar Berbatov backheels a pass to Aaron Lennon who scores in the 68th minute. It stays like that 85th minute when Tevez picks out substitute Bobby Zammora who heads in a goal. And he had just come on moments before! But West Ham’s joy was undone when Berbatov scored through his own freekick to equalize. The Hammers threw everyone but Konchesky forward and paid that price when in added time a Defoe shot, parried by Green, was tapped in by Paul Stalteri of the rebound to hand the win to Spurs.
Ok now it is so boring at home, just listening to music and guess what – my evening perks up!
Maroon – Barenaked Ladies
OU812 – Van Halen
The State – Nickelback
Three underrated albums, BNL’s hugely successful Stunt was followed by Maroon, which could not measure up to the same success of the former. Mostly due to the fact that it was a sombre record, as keyboardist Kevin Hearn had just come back from dealing with cancer.
Van Halen’s OU812 does have a couple of huge hits but most fans consider it to be a step down from the previous album, 5150, a mega seller.
The State is however a predecessor to three huge sellers – Nickelback had only a minor hit from this album (Leader Of Men) but it was a sign of things to come.
