MUSIC FOR WRITING

Since I haven't done a music post for awhile, I thought I'd post a list of the songs I've got on my "Appogiatura of John Finch" playlist. "Appog" is gettin' so long I need something like this to keep the right mood.

It's one thing I love about itunes, being able to so easily mix-and-match what I want. Some of this is old stuff, but some of this is new, from this year.

Usually, I shuffle it all up, which works nicely, since the Ulysses' Gaze soundtrack has a lot of tracks and spread across the entire list provides a weird kind of continuity.

"You have a message," Gustat said. A chill spread up Finch’s back. The ways a gray cap could send a message were numerous and unnerving. They seemed to delight in more macabre methods of communication. Once a dead cat they’d reanimated briefly using fungal technology had delivered a message to Kanners in rhyming couplets; he’d not been the same for months. Another time, a mushroom had sidled onto Dapple’s desk and turned itself inside out, revealing the message.

Thank god for single track online purchase outlets...I now have my entire 'music to buy' list for the next five years.

Also, the excerpts from Appogiatura are delicious. Can't get enough of them. 'Scuse me now...need to go see if I can preorder it on amazon.com.

ps Ever notice how often lyrics when heard with music seem to speak volumes, stirring strong emotion in the listener; yet when read in silence, they make absolutely no sense whatsoever?

I dunno...."I am the walrus" seems pretty straight forward to me.

Music and acid are needed for that one.

Goo goo g'joob.
