The Endless Note

A Big Thank You To You All

It has been running close over the last few months but June 2010 saw more than 50,000 hits in a month for this blog, 54,445 to be precise.

Now this is very small in comparison to most sites on the web but for me it gives me some satisfaction that my wide musical taste is being tapped into by others and if only one person discovers a liking for a song, album or band that has passed them by for whatever reason then it is all worth while as I myself have benefited from such surprise discoveries.

The blog was never set up to seek popularity it’s key objective was and remains to provide some “therapy” for me away from the stresses and strains of normal life, if along the way people find some pleasure or interest in the music that I promote, the news I spread or the occasional bit of humour I deliver then that is a big bonus.

With the recent passing of Alex Chilton this seems so more appropriate.

“Thank You Friends” – Big Star

Thank you, friends
Wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you
I’m so grateful for all the things you helped me do.

All the ladies and gentlemen
Who made this all so probable

Thank you, friends
I rejoice to the skies
Dear ones like you do the best I do
As far as can see my eyes

All the ladies and gentlemen
Who made this all so probable

Without my friends I got chaos
I’m often a bead of light.
Without my friends I’d be swept up high by the wind

do, do…….

All the ladies and gentlemen (I said all)
All the ladies and gentlemen (I said all)
All the ladies and gentlemen
Who made this all so probable

Thank you friends (thank you again)
Thank you friends (thank you again)
Dear, dear friends (thank you again)
Thank you friends (thank you again)
And again, and again….
Never too late to start

Jeremy Clarkson Is Hip Hop (Not!)

“Chasing Cars” – Snow Patrol

We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see

I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
would you lie with me and just forget the world?
