The Endless Note

Andy Warhol

“Andy Warhol” – David Bowie

(This is Andy Warhole and it’s take one, take one)
It’s, it’s Warhol actually
(What did I say)
Whole, it’s whole as in wholes
(Andy Warhol)
Wah, Andy War hol, Andy War hol (he)
Like whole hub
He
Ha
Are you ready
(Yeah)
Ha ha ha ha ha ha

Like to take a cement fix
Be a standing cinema
Dress my friends up just for show
See them as they really are
Put a peephole in my brain
Two New Pence to have a go
I’d like to be a gallery
Put you all inside my show

Andy Warhol looks a scream
Hang him on my wall
Andy Warhol, Silver Screen
Can’t tell them apart at all

Andy walking, Andy tired
Andy take a little snooze
Tie him up when he’s fast asleep
Send him on a pleasant cruise (hm hm hm)
When he wakes up on the sea
He sure to think of me and you
He’ll think about paint and he’ll think about glue
What a jolly boring thing to do

Andy Warhol looks a scream
Hang him on my wall
Andy Warhol, Silver Screen
Can’t tell them apart at all

Andy Warhol looks a scream
Hang him on my wall
Andy Warhol, Silver Screen
Can’t tell them apart at all

Sleeping Dog

“Sleeping Dog” – Pete Townshend

Sleeping dog by the open fire
You’re sleeping your life away
You don’t know how far you’ve got to go
Or the trouble that you’ll have to face

Yet all I can do is love you
Provide you with some fun and food
All I can do is love you
And that is what I do

Sleeping children laying in your beds
Tomorrow you’ll be back at school
You look so young but you’ve come so far
You’ll never be any soul’s fool

All I can do is love you
Provide you with some fun and food
All I can do is love you
And that is what I do

(instrumental verse)

All I can do is love you
Provide you with some fun and food
All I can do is love you
And that is what I do

Now I’m going up to my wife
Baba I pray to you
Love me just a little like I love them
And I can do some sleeping too

All I can do is love you
Provide you with a song
All I can do is love you
Like you’ve been loving me all along

All I can do is love you
Provide you with a verse or two
All I can do is love you
And that is what I do

“I Love My Dog” – Cat Stevens

I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

All he asks from me is the food to give him strength
All he ever needs is love and that he knows he’ll get

So, I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

All the pay I need comes shining through his eyes
I don’t need no cold water to make me realize that

I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana…

I love my dog as much as I love you
But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana…

I love my dog, Baby, I love my dog. Na, na, na…
I love my dog, Baby, I love my dog. Na, na, na…

Hounds Of Love

There is a lovely article in this months Uncut on the best Kate Bush album “The Hounds Of Love”

In August 1985, the NME featured Bush in a “Where Are They Now” article. Two days later, on The Wogan Show, the single “Running Up That Hill” was played for the first time.

Considered by many reviewers to be her masterpiece, Hounds of Love (1985) is no less experimental than previous albums from a production standpoint. Because of the high cost of hiring studio space for her previous album, she built a private studio near her home, where she could work at her own pace. Hounds of Love ultimately topped the charts in the UK, knocking Madonna’s Like a Virgin from the number one position.

The album takes full advantage of the old vinyl format with two very different sides, offering very different listening experiences. The first side, Hounds of Love, contains five “accessible” pop songs (each examining a particular type of love), including the four singles “Running Up That Hill”, “Cloudbusting”, “Hounds of Love”, and “The Big Sky”.

 “Running Up That Hill” re-introduced Bush to American listeners and received considerable airplay at the time of its release. It expanded her small, but loyal, American fan base and climbed to number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 1985.

The second side of the album, The Ninth Wave, takes its name from “The Coming of Arthur”, a chapter of Tennyson’s epic poem, “Idylls of the King”, about the legedary King Arthur’s reign, and is one continuous piece of music. Diving into a poetic, metaphorical dream-world, the music takes you through a night of dreams and nightmares, culminating in the apocalyptic “Hello, Earth” in which the narrator looks down at a decimated Earth from another planet, or heaven, or the astral plane (this has never been exactly defined) and mourns her lost world. For this piece, Kate enlisted the help of choral group The Richard Hickok Singers to write in an “alien” language what had been Latin lyrics. The album earned Bush nominations for Best Female Solo Artist, Best Album, Best Single, and Best Producer at the 1986 BRIT Awards.

Sometimes she can appear to be too clever for her own good but their is no doubting she has good taste when it comes to dogs.

Lonely Blue Boy

“Lonely Blue Boy” – Elvis Costello

My name should be trouble
My name should be woe
‘Cause trouble and heartaches are all that I know
Oh oh, lonely, lonely blue boy is my name

My heart has been empty
My life has been torn
It must have been raining the day I was born
Oh oh, lonely, lonely blue boy is my name

I’m so afraid of tomorrow
So sick and tired of today
They say that love is the answer
But love never came my way

I’m writing this letter to someone unknown
And if you should find it and if you’re alone
Oh oh, lonely, lonely blue boy is my name
Oh oh, lonely, lonely blue boy is my name

Blood and Chocolate is an 1986 album by Elvis Costello and the Attractions. The album reunited Costello, the Attractions and producer Nick Lowe, but it was the last recorded by the group before a breakup that would last for eight years. The album was, unusually for its time as a studio album, recorded in a single large room at high volume, with the band listening to each other on monitor speakers rather than headphones. Costello describes it as “a record of people beating and twanging things with a fair amount of yelling”.

Costello’s singing and playing is credited on the album under the pseudonym “Napoleon Dynamite,” while his songwriting is credited to him under his actual surname, “MacManus” (with the exception of “I Hope You’re Happy Now”, which is credited to “Costello”).

The above track, written by Fred Wise & Ben Weisman recorded by Elvis Presley and Conway Twitty only featured on the bonus disc issued in 2002 as part of the Rhino Records expanded re-release.
