    "Tomorrow Never Knows" Ringtones to Cell


    Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream,
    It is not dying, it is not dying

    Lay down all thought, surrender to the void,
    Is it shining? Is it shining?

    That you may see the meaning of within
    It is being, it is being

    Love is all and love is everyone
    Is it knowing? Is it knowing?

    That ignorance and hate may mourn the dead
    It is believing, it is believing

    But listen to the colour of your dreams
    Is it not living, is it not living

    Or play the game "Existence" to the end
    Of the beginning, of the beginning

    Jeff Beck talks of Morrissey
    Jeff Beck talks of Morrissey


    California Chronicle, on line article (26/04/10) interview with Jeff Beck. He speaks of meeting Morrissey at a hotel in LA...

    No regrets over going my own way musically - California Chronicle

    Excerpt:

    During his career Beck has played with Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Stevie Wonder, Brian May and ZZ Top. In 2009 he guested with Morrissey on the song Black Cloud on his album Year Of Refusal. "I met Morrissey in a hotel in Los Angeles and he put a note under my door saying, 'Would you like to play on my album?' That's how things are with me most of the time. I knew his work with The Smiths and knew he was iconic. I was also aware he was particular about how he liked to do certain things. That suited me because I'm a bit like that myself.

    "I thought, what have I got to lose? I'm going to play with the great Morrissey. It was a real friendly gesture."

    poor little rich girl (noel coward)
    Poor little rich girl,
    You're a bewitched girl,
    Better beware!
    Laughing at danger,
    Virtue a stranger,
    Better take care!
    The life you lead sets all your nerves a jangle.
    Your love affairs are in a hopeless tangle,
    Though you're a child, dear,
    Your life's a wild typhoon.
    In lives of leisure
    The craze for pleasure
    Steadily grows.
    Cocktails and laughter
    But what comes after?
    Nobody knows...

    You�re weaving love into a magic pattern
    You crawl from room to room
    Poor little rich girl
    Don�t drop the stitch too soon
    You�re only a baby, you�re lonely
    and maybe someday soon you�ll know
    by dancing much faster you�re facing disaster
    time alone will show

    ah ah ah

    Poor little rich girl
    You're a bewitched girl,
    Better beware!
    Laughing at danger,
    Virtue a stranger,
    Better take care!

    You�re weaving love into a magic pattern
    You crawl from room to room
    Poor little rich girl don�t drop the stitch too soon
    Poor little rich girl don�t drop the stitch too soon
    Poor little rich girl don�t drop the stitch too soon

    I'll see you again
    (Noel Coward)

    I'll see you again
    Whenever Spring breaks through again
    Time may lie heavy between
    But what has been
    Is past forgetting
    This sweet memory
    Across the years
    Will come to me
    Though the world may go awry
    In my heart will ever lie
    Just the echo of a sigh
    Goodbye
    I'll see you again
    Whenever Spring breaks through again

    Time has lain heavy between
    But what has been
    Can leave me never
    Your dear memory
    Throughout my life
    Will come to me
    Though my world has gone awry
    Though the years my tears may dry
    I shall love you 'til I die
    Goodbye

    neil's walk on
    I hear some people
    been talkin' me down,
    Bring up my name,
    pass it 'round.
    They don't mention
    happy times
    They do their thing,
    I'll do mine.

    Ooh baby,
    that's hard to change
    I can't tell them
    how to feel.
    Some get stoned,
    some get strange,
    But sooner or later
    it all gets real.

    Walk on, walk on,
    Walk on, walk on.

    I remember
    the good old days,
    Stayed up all night
    gettin' crazed.
    Then the money
    was not so good,
    But we still did
    the best we could.

    Ooh baby,
    that's hard to change
    I can't tell them
    how to feel.
    Some get stoned,
    some get strange,
    But sooner or later
    it all gets real.

    Walk on, walk on,
    Walk on, walk on.

    neil's barstool blues
    "Barstool Blues"

    If I could hold on
    to just one thought
    For long enough to know
    Why my mind is moving so fast
    And the conversation is slow.
    Burn off all the fog
    And let the sun
    through to the snow
    Let me see your face again
    Before I have to go.

    I have seen you in the movies
    And in those magazines at night
    I saw you on the barstool when
    You held that glass so tight.
    And I saw you in my nightmares
    But I'll see you in my dreams
    And I might live a thousand years
    Before I know what that means.

    Once there was a friend of mine
    Who died a thousand deaths
    His life was filled with parasites
    And countless idle threats.
    He trusted in a woman
    And on her he made his bets
    Once there was a friend of mine
    Who died a thousand deaths.

    Suede play Teenage Cancer Trust Show at Royal Albert Hall Brett Anderson says the band will be back
    Suede play Teenage Cancer Trust Show at Royal Albert Hall Brett Anderson says the band will be back in seven years' time
    March 25, 2010 | 1 Comments Suede news RSS feed More Suede news, reviews, videos and tour dates Post this on Twitter or Follow NME The newly-reunited Suede played a headline show last night (March 24) at London's Royal Albert Hall as part of the Teenage Cancer Trust's series of gigs at the London venue.

    Dressed in a black shirt and tight fitting jeans, the band's frontman Brett Anderson said little throughout the hit-packed set, but took the time to dedicate 'He's Gone' to a friend called Jessie, who he told the crowd had died three weeks ago.

    Singing parts of 'Heroine' and 'The Next Life' on his knees in the prayer position, Anderson went down towards the front row for 'So Young', leaning back on the sold-out audience.

    Following a massive standing ovation for 1992 single 'Metal Mickey', a grinning, visibly moved Anderson surveyed the crowd, telling them: "We haven't finished yet!"

    The band finished their set with 1996 hit 'Beautiful Ones' but returned for a three more songs, including an acoustic 'The Living Dead'.

    "I don't have anything to say about this, except that it's been fun,” said Anderson after playing 'The 2 of Us' during the rapturously received encore.

    Referring to how long it had been since the band last performed, he added: "I feel very happy to be here tonight. Let's do it again in another seven years time."

    Suede played:

    'She'
    'Trash'
    'Filmstar'
    'Animal Nitrate'
    'Heroine'
    'Pantomime Horse'
    'The Drowners'
    'Killing Of A Flashboy'
    'Can't Get Enough'
    'Everything Will Flow'
    'He's Gone'
    'The Next Life'
    'The Asphalt World'
    'So Young'

    Suede play first gig in seven years Band play hit-laden set at London's 100 Club
    March 21, 2010 | 0 Comments Suede news RSS feed More Suede news, reviews, videos and tour dates Post this on Twitter or Follow NME Suede played their first gig in seven years in London last night (March 20).

    The band played at a packed 100 Club in the UK capital, a venue they last played 18 years ago. The intimate warm-up show for their forthcoming sold-out Teenage Cancer Trust benefit concert in the UK capital’s Royal Albert Hall saw fans pay upwards of £200 a ticket in a charity auction.

    The 'Coming Up'-era line-up of the band's hour-and-a-half set was made up of material taken from all five Suede albums, and two B-sides. However, 1992 debut single 'The Drowners' did not feature.

    With Bernard Butler's replacement Richard Oakes on guitar, Neil Codling playing rhythm guitar as well as keyboards, Mat Osman on bass and Simon Gilbert on drums, singer Brett Anderson led the band through a hit-laden set, though at one point the rest of the band left the stage for him to play 'Stay Together' B-side 'The Living Dead' alone on acoustic guitar.

    A clearly emotional Anderson thanked the crowd at the end, saying: "All I have to say is I loved playing tonight. It's been beautiful. Lets do it again in another seven years time."

    Suede play the Teenage Cancer Trust gig at the Royal Albert Hall, supported by These New Puritans, on Wednesday (March 24).

    alfie by tony bennett
    What's it all about, Alfie?
    Is it just for the moment we live?
    What's it all about when you sort it out, Alfie?
    Are we meant to take more than we give
    or are we meant to be kind?
    And if only fools are kind, Alfie,
    then I guess it's wise to be cruel.
    And if life belongs only to the strong, Alfie,
    what will you lend on an old golden rule?
    As sure as I believe there's a heaven above, Alfie,
    I know there's something much more,
    something even non-believers can believe in.
    I believe in love, Alfie.
    Without true love we just exist, Alfie.
    Until you find the love you've missed you're nothing, Alfie.
    When you walk let your heart lead the way
    and you'll find love any day, Alfie, Alfie.

    "TOLEDO" Burt Bacharach & Elvis Costello
    All through the night you telephoned
    I saw the light blinking red
    Beside the cradle
    But you don't know how far I've gone
    Now I must live with the lie
    That I made
    But if I call, I know I won't have to say it
    You'll hear my voice - something is bound to betray it

    But do people living in Toledo
    Know that their name hasn't traveled very well?
    And does anybody in Ohio
    Dream of that Spanish citadel?
    But it's no use saying that I love you
    And how that girl really didn't mean a thing to me
    For if anyone should look into your eyes
    It's not forgiveness that they're gonna see

    You hear her voice - "How could you do that?"
    You hear her voice - "How could you do that?"

    So I walked outside in the bright
    Sunshine and lovers pass by
    Smiling and joking
    But they don't know the fool I was
    Why should they care what was lost
    What was broken?

    But if I call, I know I won't have to say it
    You'll hear my voice - something is bound to betray it

    But do people living in Toledo
    Know that their name hasn't traveled very well?
    And does anybody in Ohio
    Dream of that Spanish citadel?
    But it's no use saying that I love you
    And how that girl really didn't mean a thing to me
    For if anyone should look into your eyes
    It's not forgiveness that they're gonna see

    But do people living in Toledo
    Know that their name hasn't traveled very well?
    And does anybody in Ohio
    Dream of that Spanish citadel?
    But we still have Florence, Alabama
    We don't have Paris, and we don't have Rome

    Or New York, Or even Amsterdam
    None of those lonely towns
    Will be my home.

    is a PaveMent. is an N Z yeee
    Pavement: 03-01 Auckland, New Zealand - Town Hall:

    "In the Mouth a Desert"
    "Trigger Cut"
    "Ell Ess Two" (note: various sites report that they played "Loretta's Scars" or "Elevate Me Later" here) UPDATE: "Ell Ess Two" is an alternate title for "Elevate Me Later". The title "Ell Ess Two" refers to the fact that the song has the same chords as "Loretta's Scars". Hence the confusion. Thanks to Pitchfork Pavement expert Matthew Perpetua for pointing that out!
    "Shady Lane"
    "Father to a Sister of Thought"
    "Rattled by the Rush"
    "Perfume-V"
    "Summer Babe"
