The Rain Song


[The Rain Song's] lyrics are considered by Plant himself to be his best overall vocal performance.
--The Rain Song by Led Zeppelin, via Wikipedia

It is the springtime of my loving - the second season I am to know
You are the sunlight in my growing - so little warmth I've felt before.
It isn't hard to feel me glowing - I watched the fire that grew so low.

It is the summer of my smiles - flee from me Keepers of the Gloom.
Speak to me only with your eyes. It is to you I give this tune.
Ain't so hard to recognize - These things are clear to all from
time to time.

Talk Talk - I've felt the coldness of my winter
I never thought it would ever go. I cursed the gloom that set upon us...
But I know that I love you so

These are the seasons of emotion and like the winds they rise and fall
This is the wonder of devotion - I seek the torch we all must hold.
This is the mystery of the quotient - Upon us all a little rain must fall...It's just a little rain...

Fujiya & Miyagi's Knickerbocker = more awesome krautrock to code to. Catchy, low-fi stuff.

Fujiya & Miyagi are actually 4 British dudes from Brighton. Not a funky lo fi outfit out of Japan like I expected.

According to wikipedia:
The origins of the band's name come from a character in the movie The Karate Kid as well as the brand of a record player... The story of how they met and formed the band variously reports a mutual hero-worship of world heavyweight wrestler Kendo Nagasaki, and a shared interest in krautrock and early-nineties electronica discovered while warming the subs bench during Sunday league football.

Earlier I praised YouTube's recommended list... but man when I watched this music video, they advertised the crap out of it. They had over-video ads for Guns N Roses' new album Chinese Democracy. What, if I'm listening to Fujiya and Miyagi, YouTube thinks I'm going to like overproduced soulless genetically engineered Pro Tools music?

I guess you can't exactly pull Pandora/Songkick metadata in to get music genre similarity for ads... but it would be a great way to do ads for music.

Hat tip to Patrick -- his posterous iTunes podcast is awesome.
