"Run to the Hills" audition on The Voice (Sweden)

Maiden Monday

Which begs the question, why isn’t there a metal version of one of these crappy singing shows?

Live in Rio, 2002.

Are there any bad live versions of this?

"Run to the Hills" by Iron Maiden (official video)

Maiden Monday

Classic video with crazy video clips from old black and white movies interspersed with live performances of the band. This was pretty much the rule for early music videos, kids. 

Oh, and Bruce Dickinson with the spiked leather armbands and hair, and Adrian Smith with his Gibson Explorer. 

And Clive Burr (RIP).

"Run to the Hills" by Iron Maiden

Maiden Monday

White man came across the sea
He brought us pain and misery
He killed our tribes, he killed our creed
He took our game for his own need

We fought him hard we fought him well
Out on the plains we gave him hell
But many came too much for Cree
Oh will we ever be set free?

I was talking with another English teacher the other day about my AP Lang and Comp and the unit on language and power in politics, particularly in conjunction with other works on Imperialism and Colonialism. I mentioned how I intended to use selections from Andrew Jackson’s speeches on Indian relocation and pair them with Native American speeches (Chief Seattle, Chief Joseph, et al.). I mentioned that I’d planned on using this song as well  He was surprised until I reminded of the brilliant shift of narration. Then it all made sense.

"Right Down the Line" by Gerry Rafferty

You’ve been as constant as the Northern Star, the brightest light that shines
It’s been you, woman, right down the line

I’ve been listening to someone’s smooth songs from the 70s playlist while I grade papers all night (do I know how to par-tay, or what?!). And now it’s time for bed, but not before I share one more song.

"Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" by Rupert Holmes

If you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain
If you’re not into yoga, if you have half a brain
If you like making love at midnight in the dunes of the cape
Then I’m the love that you’ve looked for, write to me and escape

It’s been a long. busy week. And it’ll probably stay that way for awhile. I haven’t posted much this week, haven’t scrolled the dash, but at least it’s raining.

Getting caught in the rain don’t sound half bad.

(The piña coladas I can do without. But yoga’s pretty good. Half a brain is a minimum. Making love in the dunes? Too much sand in places where sand shouldn’t be.)

"People Who Died (live)" by The Patti Smith Band

Patti pays a nice tribute to Jim Carroll by playing his song, a tribute to his dead friends, for her friend who died five years ago today.
