I have just heard the most amazing song.

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
And I demand that everyone listens to it.

It's a classic, and probably everyone's heard it already. But I never really got into sort of folky-type music.

It's Tim Buckley's 'Song to the Siren'.

How this passed me by for all my 34 years I really don't have a clue. It's total genius. Go to the iTunes music store and buy it, and if you don't like it I'll send you your 79p / 99c by PayPal.

Man. Talk about utterly, devastatingly heartbreaking.

You know, you just reminded me to watch Lost Highway. Again. This song is on that film, and as you said, it's utterly heart-breaking. The guy has a beautiful voice.

Sigh...

There's this horrible perfume TV ad that plays every year here at Xmas that has this same "here I am, here I am, waiting to boink you" refrain over and over. They never change the ad. It's not the same version as the movie, I believe.

Thanks Hassan. Quite nice. One of my favs in a similar style: Now Westlin Winds by Dick Gaughan. Unfortunately not on iTunes, but on the album Handful of Earth. And there's always Nick Drake for a bit of lugubrium.

midwinter you dig that folky stuff dontcha?

I guess you know the version from This Mortal Coil - I think I prefer it marginally.

It's okay, but I wouldn't buy it nor rate it four or even five stars. Do I get my money anyway?

Thanks Segovius for reminding me of that, I can remember the first time I heard it. It still floors me.

Yes. I bought it when it came out and loved it. I've been playing it a lot in the last few days. I'd never heard the original. It floored me all over again.

Bah! Blasphemy. Everyone knows the most amazing song ever is Golden Age by Kreator.

I am just beginning to put this all together. I've had Grace on the iPod for a couple of months, and am thoroughly impressed. I have a Tim Buckley vinyl album in the garage, but no CD's. One to add to the xmas list.

So what killed Jeff, anyway?

Do what you will, but harm none.

If you like Nick Drake, check Lucinda Williams' version of Which Will. Lovely.

That's true he drowned but there wasn't a trace of drugs or alcohol in his system when they did the autopsy. I have an interview they did with his mom, maybe from VH1 or MusicMusic. I thought Tim Buckley died from drugs though... I'll have to go listen to this song.

Thanks for the tip. I'd never listened to her, but it sounds nice.
