I am currently addicted to this song.  I blast it every morning on the commute and arrive to work pumped.

Yes!  It makes a nice mix.  This guy "Miracle of Sound" is just a one man project.  I'm really liking the way the internet has changed music consumption and distribution.  The artist can publish his stuff right to the fans from his own home, and then fans can buy the music through whatever digital platform.

 

Another band I've been listening to lately, "The Gentle Storm"

OK... here is what I'm currently listening to:

Even if you're not into wrestling, especially of the WWE kind, there's something to appreciate when a fan puts his heart into his covers.

Listening to Alien Weaponry. A friend called me up " You like that Sepultura stuff, you gotta listen to these teens from New Zealand". I'm not quite sure what they're saying (as I'm Lakota, not Maori) but I kind of dig it. Granted, I think my friend's wrong, I don't think Kai Tangata can even hold a candle to Roots Bloody Roots, but I still kind of dig it.

I can't understand half the stuff I listen to.  :) Don't let it stop me.

I recently heard this song play at work, and asked my fellow chef what the song is...?

It has a really catchy beat, and almost always makes the people in the kitchen move along in some way.

It is a South African group, Mafikizolo, and they sing in 4 languages, most commonly English, Xhosa, Zulu and sometimes in Afrikaans (all Native Languages of SA)

 

 

And continuing South African Artists... I've known about the band since lloooooong ago, they collaborated with Shakira for the 2010 world cup that was hosted in South Africa 

 

Freshlyground. Their music has a pleasing tune, the lead singer Zolani has a great voice, she uses it really well. Freshlyground's musical style blends elements of traditional South African music (such as kwela and African folk music), blues, jazz, and features of indie rock

 

 I find this music video soooo cute/adorable/fun....

Our longtime volunteer fire fighter member Wittich died. After his retirement as a truck driver he was repairing our fire trucks, was driving trucks for international health organizations, was always there for help...

The burial was in our 131 people village at the small graveyard behind the church. The 2 hills around our village were covered with trucks and bikes. Must be like 500 people at the burial, all over the world. He wished for a special song and we played the English cover version from Gregorian at the organ and then when carrying the coffin with the firefighters the german original was played and song by everyone.

 

Wir waren geboren um zu leben
mit den Wundern jener Zeit
Sich niemals zu vergessen
bis in alle Ewigkeit
Wir waren geboren um zu leben
für den einen Augenblick
Bei dem jeder von uns spürte
wie wertvoll Leben ist

 

We were born to feel alive
under gracious skies
recalling what you said
when you closed your eyes
we were born to live and die
in the wonders of your time
so treasure every moment
and the love there is to find

 

 

The German original

This sounds like a wonderful homage.  No way to have him live in your hearts and memory but with effort like this.

My condolences for your loss too Chattius

Sheets are swaying from an old clothesline

Like a row of captured ghosts over old dead grass

Was never much but we made the most

Welcome home

Ships are launching from my chest

Some have names but most do not

If you find one, please let me know what piece I've lost

Peel the scars from off my back

I don't need them anymore

You can throw them out or keep them in your mason jars

I've come home

All my nightmares escaped my head

Bar the door, please don't let them in

You were never supposed to leave

Now my head's splitting at the seams

And I don't know if I can...

Here, beneath my lungs, I feel your thumbs press into my skin again
