Bob Dylan - Stay With Me (video)
Sometimes a song comes 'cross your desk that blows you away. Bob Dylan's "Stay With Me" is such a song. Sure, it's Bob Dylan and many people will say he is an icon. I didn't grow up on his work. Sure, I liked some of his songs, but he never really did it for me. I didn't connect fully with the entirety of his body of work. "Stay With Me" instantly captured me. Maybe it's because of my age, the place where I am in life. So much loss and having to say goodbye. But it's a song that went strait to my heart. It's a lovely simple composition that tugs at your heart strings and proves again, to a new generation of users that Bob Dylan is a master wordsmith.
Bob Dylan's new album, "Shadows in the Night," out February 3.
LIFE OF AGONY A Place Where There's No More Pain Napalm Records Release: 28 April 2017
I'm a long time Life of Agony fan. They are "locals". I've seen them live in Brooklyn (although, I've seen them live more in Germany). They are a solid heavy metal band. The new album on Napalm Records is wicked groovilicious. Yes, I'm biased. But Life of Agony's A Place Where's No More Pain is gobsmackingly amazing.
The songs are harsh; I mean they are like a punch to the gut. The feels. Zomg the feels. The lyrics just make you go, 'God Damn!' (said in Sweet D's voice). There is so much to headbang or pole dance (whatever you predilection).
'Dead Speak Kindly' and 'A New Low' puts me in the mind of Alice in Chains. Ted Jensen's fingerprints are all in this pie. He worked with Alice in Chains and you can tell. This is a good thing as you are familiar with the overall tone of the music.
