This is one of the best performances I have ever seen by Pink...the lyrics, music and visual...
perfection...

Glitter in the Air
Songwriters: Mann, Billy; Moore, Alecia;

Have you ever felt a lover with just your hands?
Close your eyes and trust it, just trust it
Have you ever thrown a fist full of glitter in the air?
Have you ever looked fear in the face
And said I just don't care?

It's only half past the point of no return
The tip of the iceberg, the sun before the burn
The thunder before lightning, the breath before the phrase
Have you ever felt this way?

Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone?
Your whole life waiting on the ring to prove you're not alone
Have you ever been touched so gently you had to cry?
Have you ever invited a stranger to come inside?

It's only half past the point of oblivion
The hourglass on the table, the walk before the run
The breath before the kiss and the fear before the flames
Have you ever felt this way?

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

There you are, sitting in the garden
Clutching my coffee, calling me sugar
You called me sugar

Have you ever wished for an endless night?
Lassoed the moon and the stars and pulled that rope tight
Have you ever held your breath and asked yourself
Will it ever get better than tonight? Tonight

:lol: You think that is a 'dance rush'!?

My clip showed a band re-inventing a sound for the times and for the good, it also showed a 'fags&beer' audience in those times reacting.

Your clip looks like a Quaker meeting :)

p.s.
AS, heres a proper tune http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORJBFI_OLdU and what I'd call a well proper 'dance rush' version http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qriH-8yeqcE
p.p.s.
No idea how its connected As but you've made me laugh about cultural differences, as I've remembered an old saw amongst British Comedians, i.e. "Audiences are not allowed to heckle!? Result!!", it came from a story I heard about a Brit comedian in the States hearing the words, "Sir! The artist will be allowed to finish his act. If you have criticism you may voice it at the end.". :)
But what made me laugh was a story about a Yank comedian in Birmingham(UK :) ) who freaked at being heckled, lost it and basically told the heckler 'Look Buddy, you don't know who I am, I could make your life's karma very bad, or some weird shit, etc..." There was a big embarrassed pause amongst the audience, then the voice came back(in a Brummie accent) "I'll take me chances...you're shit!".

Hi Arising,

A:Your clip looks like a Quaker meeting :)

AS: LOL...I know...I sent it to you because it reminded me of your clip...all sweet and innocent. :P

A:But what made me laugh was a story about a Yank comedian in Birmingham(UK :) ) who freaked at being heckled...

AS:I can't believe any comedian could 'lose it'...aren't they supposed to be prepared for hecklers? What a baby he was!
But it reminds me of the time my husband and I went to a local comedy club....there was that one guy from 'king of queens'...i think his name is spence on the show (he wasn't famous at the time yet though)....anyway...he was really bombing onstage. He was doing a routine about suicide and you could hear a pin drop. All of a sudden my husband leans over to me and whispers in my ear, "Don't tell us...show us." :lol:

Of course this made me bust out laughing because I was thinking the same thing...and then to get the visual of him actually committing suicide on stage and that it would possibly be more entertaining (yeah I'm a sick fuck sometimes). Anyway...I think "Spence" Was just grateful someone on was laughing....poor guy.

Now here's a sweet and innocent song that is ultra cool...

See, I thought this and thought the original idea another nice comical observation about cultures, but then you said this,

And in my world the 'local comedy club' you'd just about hear the pin-drop upon a bomb before the audience would drown the poor bugger off-stage, its that the 'large comedy club' ethos rules that whispering is okay that I don't visit comedy-clubs anymore, unless its amateur-night that is. Although this is not knocking the Yank contribution to Comedy, which is vast.

I think you delude yourself, its much more likely that he heard your peal of laughter as the 'last slice', who knows? Which is why we heckle over here, to get the 'embarrassment' off-stage or give them a chance to shine.
Now here's a sweet and innocent song that is ultra cool...
:lol: Hendricks 'sweet and innocent' and now ultra-cool. Let us remember that he left a n***** to come over here and then be recognised as 'ultra-cool', although a 3-tab, upside-down, left-handed, lead-guitarist frontman just sounds fuck scary to me.

do we need to be taught ? or is it enough to delight in music, and wish to share ? even in a not philosophical way ?

Sharing the poetry of Goethe, set to music :

Wandrers Nachtlied

There is also a stirring 'Valkyrie' version, but I can do without the face of Tom Cruise...

Hi AS, glad you like it ! It's amazing what you find when you become besotted by someone....that Goethe fella....

One thing about the poem, it seemed very familiar.' Little birds fall silent in the woods...soon you'll also be at rest..'
Apparently, Goethe wrote this ( Nightsong II ) on Sept 6th, 1780 - adapting it from the lyrics of a Greek poet, Alcaman.
But I sure never heard of him ! So where....?

Lot of questions :)
What do you mean by 'taught'? Does it increase ones 'pleasure' in 'hearing' 'classical' music if one understands its structure? I think so but it'd depend heavily upon what one thought that 'pleasure' was when hearing such sounds? For myself, I have a very crude split between 'music' to dance too and 'music' to listen too, but appreciate that you can dance too pretty much anything.
Kids I've met have a whole meta-language about the music they listen too and have upbraided me for my ignorance in such matters as to the simplistic construction of the songs and lyrics that I've liked. But as I point out to them, do they listen to the actual lyrics? Coz my message is always sound. Personally, I've always consoled myself about black-slavery in that the African Drum beat may have not made it to my shores and I'd have had my youth dancing to such as without it, and whilst I love Strauss, the Celts and Saxon Folk, it'd not be the same or as much fun I reckon :)

So depending what you mean by 'delight', yes I think so. Why the question about 'sharing'? Given the thread.
What is a 'philosophical way' in such matters? Or this thread.

You know what Arising - I can't think what prompted me to ask these questions....

I've got a bit of a head-ache right now. Perhaps some soothing music...

Philosophy forum?

Probably not, silence, water, 'fresh air' or 'aspirin' appear to work. But if its psychosomatic and not alcohol induced then for the head,

for the mind,

Classic! (a good example of what the interweb can do I think).
