2010 Top 30 New and Old #7

 Mark Everett as “eels” release two albums in 2010, the first “End Times” arrived in January and this track has remained a constant in my playlist ever since.

Little bird
Hoppin’ on my porch
I know it sounds kinda sad
But what’s it all for?
Right now you’re the only friend I have in the world
And I just can’t take out very much
Goddamn
I miss that girl

Little bird
You look all right
I’m sure it’s not easy
Gettin’ through your night
So tell me this can’t be how it’s gonna end
Tell me my heart
Somehow
Dear God
Is gonna mend

Little bird
I guess you’re right
Can’t let her take me out
Without a fight
But right now I can’t see making sense of this world
I just can’t take out very much
Goddamn
I miss that girl

“Tomorrow Morning” followed in August and I like the way this is going.

I like your toothy smile,
it never fails to beguile.
Whichever way the wind is blowing
I like the way this is going.

I like the color of your hair,
I think we make a handsome pair.
I can only see my love growing
I like the way this is going

I like to watch TV with you,
there’s really nothing i would rather do.
Then maybe we can go to bed,
get up and do it all again.

I like the way your pants fit,
how you stand and how you sit,
whatever seeds that you’re sowing,
I like the way this is going.

I don’t care about the past,
none of it was made to last,
it’s not what who you’ve known,
but who you’re knowing,

I like the way this is going
I like the way this is going.

New News – Another eels Album

American “group” Eels are to complete a trilogy of albums with the release of ‘Tomorrow Morning’.

Eels had always worked hard. Releasing a string of studio albums, the four year break after ‘Blinking Lights And Other Revelations’ took fans by surprise.

Initially put down to tour fatigue, or even providing the space singer E needed to craft his memoirs, it now seems that the band were planning. In an announcement today (May 20th) Eels revealed that they are set to release the final instalment of an album trilogy later this summer.

Beginning with ‘Hombre Lobo’ in June 2009, the trilogy runs through ‘End Times’ and now ‘Tomorrow Morning’. While ‘End Times’ was a stark, acoustic, largely solo affair the new album is a band recording.

Completing the trilogy, little has been revealed about the album itself. Representing a vastly ambitious musical ark, Eels have confirmed details of a new world tour to coincide with the album.

Opening on August 3rd in Santa Ana, the new tour is the first the band have undertaken since the release of ‘Hombre Lobo’. Set to contain material from all three albums in the trilogy, the tour will travel across the world.

Taking in shows in the United States, Japan, Australia and more Eels will hit Europe later this year. Planning to perform at V Festival, Eels are also due to play two headline shows in Glasgow and Birmingham.

Eels are set to release ‘Tomorrow Morning’ on August 23rd.

Christmas Jukebox 6

 

Time for an Indie Christmas

“Everything’s Gonna Be Cool This Christmas” – eels

remember last year when you were on your own
you swore the spirit couldn’t be found
december rolled around and you were counting on it to roll out

but everything’s gonna be cool this christmas
everything’s gonna be cool this christmas
everything’s gonna be cool this christmas

well everybody’s waiting for you down at the house
the tree is looking so inspired
there’s a yuletide groove waiting for you to move
come on and throw another log on the fire

and everything’s gonna be cool this christmas
everything’s gonna be cool this christmas
everything’s gonna be cool this christmas

baby Jesus, born to rock

as the days go by, the more that we need friends
and the harder they are to find
if I could have a friend like you in my life
then I guess I’d be doing just fine

and everything’s gonna be cool this christmas
everything’s gonna be cool this christmas
everything’s gonna be cool this christmas

Now for something from ex-Dumbarton “star” James Allan

“A Snowflake Fell (And It Felt Like A Kiss) – Glasvegas

The prayers from the graveyard keeps mumblin’ death
Too much time hobbles lost in hurt
Now I’m compelled to care about my future going nowhere

I just stand here all alone in the cold wonderin’ where I’m going to-day
Then a snowflake fell and it felt like a kiss now I’m okay

The ringin’ from the bells keep screamin’ out love
As snow fell from heavens above
Directionless no more
Emptiness no more

Now I don’t feel so all alone in the cold wonderin’ where I’m going to-day
For a snowflake fell and it felt like a kiss now I’m okay

Oo –oo

Now I don’t feel so all alone in the cold wonderin’ where I’m going to-day
For a snowflake fell and it felt like a kiss now I’m okay (3x)

For a snowflake fell and it felt like a kiss now I’m okay

Finally perhaps the WORST Christmas Song ever (yes worse than the worst of Cliff!)

“O Come All Ye Faithful” – Twisted Sister

Indeed it is !!!!!!!!!!

Saturday Morning

“Saturday Morning” – eels

Saturday morning
And who’s gonna play with me
Six in the morning baby
I got a long long day ahead of me

The parents are sleeping soundly
The neighbors are dead as wood
I’m getting up and coming over
We gotta rock the neighborhood

Nothing’s ever gonna happen ’round here
If we don’t make it happen
Sleep away the day if you want to
But i got something that i gotta do

It’s saturday morning
And this ain’t the place for me
I’m giving you warning baby
We got a whole big fat world to see

Nothing’s ever gonna happen ’round here
If we don’t make it happen
Sleep away the day if you want to
But i got something that i gotta do

It’s saturday morning
And who’s gonna play with me
Six in the morning baby
I got a long long day ahead of me

Here is a video for another track (In MyYounger Days) from the forthcoming January album release “End Times”
