I am coming to this week’s theme a little bit sideways, but I am not cheating.  I am on a roadtrip in Oregon.  Amongst my goals is to renew my interest in photography, and to refind some music in my archives that I have not meant to ignore.  I will be compiling a playlist for my blog; this is a preview.

For the photo I am sharing here, I spent a lot of time trying to capture the angle and the timing. Clean, pure water was breaking right before my eyes.  I got wet, but not as wet as you might imagine.  Neat.

The song is from an oddly beautiful album that I’ve never made sense of it.  Parts of it are amazing.  The hook in this song, with that woman’s voice and change of tempo, always catches me.  While the subject matter is dark, what really bothers me, is I have no recollection of how, why, when, or where I acquired this.  It must be that somebody in a record shop suggested I check it out, but I have no memory.  That is unusual for me – almost every record and CD I own, and I have a story behind it.

One final note: I’d never watched this video before searching it out for this post.  Whacky thing.

Song:  If This Hat Is Missing I Have Gone Hunting
Album:  Rest Now, Weary Head! You Will Get Well Soon
Artist:  Get Well Soon
Song Writer: Konstantin Gropper

 

Thanks to Helen for the challenge;  Song Lryic Sunday

This time we will end it
This life ain’t got no future, girl
Don’t say it’s not my business
It’s tragic you don’t feel my pity
Just think of all the others
What they think, they feel, they seen
But the letters are not golden
Till they write them on your tombstone, girl

Shoot, baby, shoot, Baby, pull the trigger
Fire a bullet, an arrow or a poisoned dart, baby
Shoot, baby, shoot, Free us from the pressure
With a rifle or a gun, we can’t live forever

It takes just one second
I’m trying not to cause you pain
They say that this forest’s haunted
You soon will find new friends in ghosts
Just hope that I will aim right
But if it’s over soon

Shoot, baby, shoot, Baby, pull the trigger
Fire a bullet, an arrow or a poisoned dart, baby
Shoot, baby, shoot, Free us from the pressure
With a rifle or a gun, we can’t live forever
