Isnt it amazing how some things from your childhood always stick with you... certain movies for instance... was flipping around Foxtel tonight and came across The Muppet Movie... 20-25 years later, and I can still repeat 90% of the script word for word LOL

oh and one of the all time great songs *S*




Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it,
And look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing?
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

All of us under its spell,
We know that it's probably magic....

Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same.
I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
Is it something that I'm supposed to be?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.
La, la la, La, la la la, La Laa, la la, La, La la laaaaaaa




Why are there so many songs about rainbows?
That's part of what rainbows do.
Rainbows are memories, sweet dream reminders --
What is it you'd like to do?
All of us watching and wishing we'd find it,
I know you're watching it, too.
Someday you'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers, and you!

Ok this may be old news for some *S* but was just checking out info on the new Foo Fighters album due out next week... and saw the track listing, then this article... awesome, cant wait to hear it *S*

Foo Fighters Pay Tribute to Beaconsfield Miners

Dave Grohl will include 'The Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners' on the next Foo Fighters album.

Speaking to Billboard, Grohl admitted that he was "in tears" when he heard that the two trapped Tasmanian miners had requested an iPod with Foo Fighters music on it while they awaited rescue. After the men were brought to safety, Grohl made good on his promise of concert tickets for them.

When one appeared at a Foo Fighters show at the Sydney Opera house, Grohl was moved to write something for the pair. He told Billboard, "I came up with this little instrumental thing. After the show, we went and got f*ckin' wasted in the hotel bar and I was like, 'Dude, I promise I'm going to put this on the record.'"

True to form, 'The Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners' is slated to appear on Foo Fighters' sixth studio album 'Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace', due for release on September 25. New York busker-cum-solo star Kaki King guests on the track, in a banjo finger-picking style. Grohl said, "I showed it to her once and she shredded it ten times better than I've ever played it."

Click the initial link first to just listen, then go second link later to actually read the lyrics... but think it works better if you just listen first...

Tim Rogers Makes a Gentleman's Agreement

You Am I front man Tim Rogers is stripping back for fans, announcing his "Gentleman's Agreement" Tour in May and June, with very special guest Louis Macklin from Melbourne band 67 Special.

Tim will complete his new solo album with a cornucopia of musicians just before he goes on the road for these exclusive performances. "The Luxury Of Hysteria", the latest addition to Tim's repertoire, is a concept album that tells of a lack of conception.

On the "Gentleman's Agreement" Tour the intimate shows will feature Louis on piano and Tim singing sweet songs old and new for those lucky enough to see this suave duo perform together.

Rocker Billy Thorpe dies of heart attack

Entertainment figures pay tribute to Thorpe

A lot of memories, a bit hard not to have when he is what your parents grew up with and one of their biggest influences... hearing stories of mum seeing him in the 60's at the height of his early teen idol stage... then on through the 70's... just one part of my parents record collection that I grew up with and learnt from and gave me the great respect for what came before...

Unfortunately never got around to seeing him live myself, something I know I'll always regret... and also eye opening when you realise he is only a couple of years older than your own parents...

One of the greats of Aussie music, who helped shape and define that Oz Pub Rock sound... RIP

Most People I Know (Think That I'm Crazy) Lyrics
(By BILLY THORPE)

Most people i know think that im crazy and
i know at times i act a little hazy but
if thats my way
and you should know it then
in every way help me to show it

oooooooo yeah, yeah, yeah

For most of my life i lived a delusion yes
material gain has caused me confusion but
slowly in time i learned that my place is to
tell all that i meet the glory that God is

oooooooo yeah, yeah

and thats why

Most people i know think that im crazy and
i know at times i act a little hazy but
if thats my
and you should know it then
in every way help me to show it

oooooooo yeah, yeah, yeah

Most people i know think that im crazy and
i know at times i act a little hazy but
if thats my way
and you should know it then
in every way help me to show it
