A thousand kisses deep

It’s always been sold as a song, but it’s simply an amazing poem created by Leonard Cohen.

I don’t usually put the whole lyric on a post, but this time it more than worth it!

Anytime I hear that song, a same special person comes to my mind so, for me, this song in entirely dedicated to her:

A thousand kisses deep:

______________________________________________________

You came to me this morning
And you handled me like meat
Youd have to be a man to know
How good that feels, how sweet

My mirror twin, my next of kin
Id know you in my sleep
And who but you would take me in
A thousand kisses deep

I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat
You see Im just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet

Who loved you with his frozen love
His secondhand physique
With all he is and all he was
A thousand kisses deep

I know you had to lie to me
I know you had to cheat
To pose all hot and high
Behind the veils of sheer deceit

Our perfect porn aristocrat
So elegant and cheap
Im old but Im still into that
A thousand kisses deep

Im good at love, Im good at hate
Its in between I freeze
Been working out but its too late
(Its been too late for years)

But you look good, you really do
They love you on the street
If you were here Id kneel for you
A thousand kisses deep

The autumn moved across your skin
Got something in my eye
A light that doesnt need to live
And doesnt need to die

A riddle in the book of love
Obscure and obsolete
And witnessed here in time and blood
A thousand kisses deep

But Im still working with the wine
Still dancing cheek to cheek
The band is playing Auld Lang Syne
But the heart will not retreat

I ran with Diz, I sang with Ray
I never had their sweet
But once or twice they let me play
A thousand kisses deep

I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat
You see Im just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet

Who loved you with his frozen love
His secondhand physique
With all he is and all he was
A thousand kisses deep

But you dont need to hear me now
And every word I speak
It counts against me anyhow
A thousand kisses deep

The song follows with I’m your man, another song worthy of legend 😉

Trumpets, please!

Nowadays music, generally can be consider a great load of shit.

Nothing new is invented anymore, artists aren’t famous (always generally speaking) by their quality as artists, it doesn’t matter if you have some great voice, since they’re gonna modify it anyway.

Many famous songs are entirely done with a computer…

Doing this you’re simply killing the essence of such a beautiful art as it’s the music.

There’s a song that can be widely heard on the radio this week (and probably many more), not because of it’s quality, but ’cause of the name of the one who has done it: Jason Derulo.

The song is called “Trumpets“… and it’s really a spit on the name of music itself.

If you read the lyric, it’s still beautiful (it bases the body of a woman as a simple object, but that’s nearly a topic, so we’re not gonna make a point on it)

“”Every time that you get undressed
I hear symphonies in my head
I wrote this song just looking at you oh, oh””

the problem comes with the melody: lyric and rythm don’t match. And the solution is… cutting words! =D of course! how could we not think about that earlier?? if you have a word way too long to be fitted on a single phrase… instead of changing it… just cut it! easiness first.

And so, the new lyric does:

“”Every time – that you get undressed
I hear sym – phonies in my head
I wrote this song – just looking at you oh, oh””

Come on people! it’s not that hard to do great music! and it doesn’t necessary be from a single style! just check: classic, hiphop, rock, metal, reggae, there are many!! use your head and think less about easy money! you’re just making humanity worse that it already is!
