Re: Soothing Songs & Quiet Ones...

Good one, dr wu!

Here's a current artist I found about through being a fan of Scott Walker, interestingly enough! Bat For Lashes is led by British Pakistani singer/songwriter Natasha Khan. Walker has a vocal cameo on The Big Sleep from her/their 2009 release, Two Suns. I eventually got that album on CD, and liked the song a lot. But my favorite track on that album is this one:

Originally released in the early 1970s, then re-released in 1979.A consistently good progressing album-after the mayhem of Monday... this soothes(along with Kentucky libation!)

Ash - Easy Game.

Re: Soothing Songs & Quiet Ones...

... not just this song-but everything I attach on here is I think an expression of how I feel and not what I like. Never in my sixty odd years have I felt disgust, betrayal, sadness, worry and despair. I trust and believe little but I hope lots.

Re: Soothing Songs & Quiet Ones...

A favorite.............




The tune and lyrics date back to the Middle Ages. The herbs were mentioned for their spiritual meaning in medieval lore. Parsley was thought to remove bitter emotions. Sage was a symbol of wisdom and healing. Rosemary evoked remembrance, and was used to bless weddings with love and fidelity. Thyme was a symbol of courage and chivalry.
"Scarborough Fair" is a traditional English ballad about the Yorkshire town of Scarborough.

The song relates the tale of a young man who instructs the listener to tell his former love to perform for him a series of impossible tasks, such as making him a shirt without a seam and then washing it in a dry well, adding that if she completes these tasks he will take her back. Often the song is sung as a duet, with the woman then giving her lover a series of equally impossible tasks, promising to give him his seamless shirt once he has finished

As the versions of the ballad known under the title "Scarborough Fair" are usually limited to the exchange of these impossible tasks, many suggestions concerning the plot have been proposed, including the hypothesis that it is about the Great Plague of the late Middle Ages.

Paul Simon learned the song in London in 1965 from Martin Carthy, who had picked up the tune from the songbook by Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger and included it on his eponymous 1965 album. Simon & Garfunkel set it in counterpoint with "Canticle"—a reworking of the lyrics from Simon's 1963 anti-war song, "The Side of a Hill", set to a new melody composed mainly by Art Garfunkel.

Back in '72 or' 73 I thought Kit Carruther was just about the coolest dude ever.. Who didn't drag on a Marlboro like that after seeing Badlands?
