Led Zeppelin ~ Over the Hills and Far Away

One of my favorite bands and one of my favorite songs by them. I found out some interesting facts about the song also.  Robert Plant’s lyrics were inspired by the book The Hobbit!   too cool!

Enjoy!  🙂

@justagirllost2 

  • This evolved from the Yardbirds song “White Summer,” an acoustic solo by Jimmy Page. Many of the same riffs and chords are in it. After The Yardbirds broke up, Led Zeppelin continued to play “White Summer” live. >>
  • This was one of the few Led Zeppelin songs released as a single in the US. It made it only to #51.
  • The music was inspired by Jimmy Page’s Celtic ancestry.
  • This began as an instrumental. Robert Plant came up with backing tracks then lyrics.
  • Plant’s lyrics were inspired by the J.R.R. Tolkien book The Hobbit, and to Tolkein’s 1915 poem of the same name. “Over The Hills And Far Away” describes the adventure the Hobbits embark on.
  • Page and Plant started writing this in 1970 at Bron-yr-Aur, the cottage in Wales they went to after a grueling US tour. It had no electricity or running water.
  • There’s an old English song called “Over The Hills And Far Away” that dates back to the 18th century (It appears in John Gay’s play The Beggar’s Opera). This might be where the band got the title. >>
  • If you listen closely, you can hear an acoustic guitar playing throughout the song.

Sick at the moment…

I’m sick at the moment, sinus infection, ugh and it’s completely got me tired and drained of energy.

That said, as soon as I’m better I intend to post something relevant, timely and hopefully interesting.

When it comes to politics, my views are usually at odds with most writers and poets, that’s ok with me, I never take it personally when others disagree with me, even if they are wrong.  😉

What I am so tired of is the negativity about our president, it’s beyond ridiculous.

Those who hate him because he isn’t a ‘statesman’, that’s EXACTLY what got him elected.  He isn’t all smooth talking snake oil salesman bullshitter professional politician/criminal.

There is a method to his madness.  It’s quite unfortunate that many well-intentioned and well-educated people choose to believe the MSM and globalists and lying hype being piled against him instead of looking at what is going on behind the scenes.

I’m also highly offended that 63 million Americans are called racists for voting for the man.  That is the ultimate in stupidity and ignorance.

I am certainly not a racist, no one I know who voted for him is a racist.  The fact that people cannot understand nor figure out just why he won does not justify calling people racists.  The same people calling Trump voters racist are the ones who called those who didn’t vote for Obama racist.   Get a clue.  Please, get a frickin clue.

There are many well-educated, intelligent people in this country who vote according to common sense and the Constitution.  Maybe it’s a bit too simple to understand for those arrogant, pompous asses who love to lump everyone in a category who doesn’t agree with there liberal, progressive, Marxist mentalities.

I digress, I meant to write about how I’m going to write when I’m feeling better.

It is a difficult process to unravel all the truth from the lies being spun non-stop by the MSM and the idiots in politics who only want to pursue their globalist agenda, but I hopefully will be able to do so in the future, if not for anyone else, but my own sanity.

Peace and love,

Niki

Hallelujah

A song I recently rediscovered

and my God, what a song…

I can’t believe I had to rediscover this piece of divinity by the late Leonard Cohen

I cannot critique it as a musician would, I am not a musician

I’m simply a lover of music

I am a lover of sound

Every thing in the universe hums with life

Every heart beating sings a note in our cosmic symphony

I love going outside, late night, after a rain when all of creation is alive, singing, vibrating, trilling, humming, brimming, thrilling, screaming, whispering, screeching, sighing, shouting out to the sky

I love sound

I love music

Such a sensual gift, is music!

I cannot tell you why I love the music I love, I can only tell you I love it and ask that you listen and hope that you love it too and in loving it too you will somehow know why I love it also

I do not know how anyone cannot believe in magic and miracles after listening to this…

It’s pure desire

an eternal Spring

When you read me

In some small way

I would tell you how beautiful

and brilliant are your words

and how much I admire

every single line and curve

 

I would try to convey how

my soul soars as my eyes

devour each sentence,

 

I would, but I won’t

not today or any other day

because it seems

better

to you if my thoughts

shy and stay away

 

So, instead I shall whisper

them into the ears of the angels

and send them on their way

and I’ll pray that you

are made happy and feel

the joy you bring to my

each and every day,

in some small way

~

My Feelings Never Wane

I’d fight with fire just to get close to you…

~

FORINSTAGRAMPOEMneverWane

My feelings

those deep, dark, passionate

delicious feelings

relentless wants

undying needs

of desire ~ love ~ lust

never wane

they pulse pizzicato, firm and strong

stronger

flowing thru me, vibrating my being

sighing touching tasting streaming

My thoughts never stop touching

searching for yours

My lips never stop aching

throbbing for a taste, a bite

a lingering lick of your skin

My body never stops humming, quivering

burning to feel your lips once more

and though life is so busy, insanely so right now,

it never drives me to distraction

only you commit that crime

though I am under the weather

oh so tired, I fall into bed as if a rag doll

knowing you breathe and exist

knowing you live in my world

you are my forever breath of life

You are my muse, my poetry

my inspiration, my desire, my delight

The Beatles

One of my favorite groups of all time, The Beatles. I remember listening to all the albums that my mom got in her album of the month club and The Beatles albums were always my favorites played over & over & over again, and then, when I was about 11,  we went visit my older, hipper cousins and I heard Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band for the first time and it was nirvana.  I believe it was the soundtrack album from the movie of the same title.  I rushed out and bought that album and felt so cool.  As I’ve gotten older and especially now, I realize just how talented and beyond extraordinary The Beatles were.

I love pretty much every single one of their songs, but my 2 most favorite are Norwegian Wood, sung by John Lennon and While My Guitar Gently Weeps by George Harrison.

~

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps” is a song from their 1968 double album The Beatles (also known as “the White Album”). It was written by George Harrison and the recording includes a lead guitar part played by Eric Clapton.

“Norwegian Wood” was one of the first Western pop songs to feature the sitar, an Indian instrument.  John Lennon wrote it about an affair he was having on his wife, Cynthia, which to me was/is a pretty sh*tty thing to do, but my God, what a song!  I don’t think of singer or songwriter or reason for or what the song is about when I hear it, all I think of is another world, another place, another time, another universe called music.  It’s simply beautiful, breathtaking and bliss for my senses.

I’m posting some videos below with the original versions and some really fabulous cover versions, imho.

I hope you get swept away and lost in their magic as much as I did and always do when I listen to them.  I would also love to know some of your favorites by The Beatles!   Enjoy!

Niki 💕
