    The "Old" Songfacts Gang

    Hi All ! I haven;t been here for a long time, mostly because I'm still fairly computer illiterate and I have trouble negotiating the Site. It's good to see some of my great Mates here. Hope you all had a happy Christmas and have a wonderful 2019. Here's a photo of my whole Family taken on Christmas Day. I'm at the back - now OLD 78.

  3. We learned through his Facebook that Joe died today. His son posted a sad and warm text. I don't know if I should copy and paste or just let people say how much they loved him. I'll leave it up to you. My very first post in Songacts, was in 2004. My first answer was sweet UncleJoe's... ❤️ ❤️

  4. I was wondering if any of the old Songfacts gang (you know who you are) checks in to the site much these days. Every once in while I come back searching for you guys but come up empty. It was a vibrant and crazy place when we all joined close to 15 years ago and it remained that way for a long time. Frankly I miss it. If any of you stop by, leave a comment. I'd love to know how you guys are doing. RonJonSurfer (Ron)

  5. Joe was a steadfast SF rock, always had a kind or funny word. A gentle soul. Although he refused to ever wear pants, that's one of the things we loved about him. So sad, not to mention shocked, to hear of his passing. He'll always be remembered as one of the Songfacts OGs, a true original. ❤️

  6. (Amazing that I still remembered my password here!) Was referred to this page by a link provided by Edna on the news of the passing of Uncle Joe, which is devastating. But I am glad to find this thread and read names I recall fondly. I think of the old Songfacts gang often. My wife and I moved from Brazil to America 4 1/2 years ago, bought a motor home and have now travelled the nation since, until grounded in Louisiana for the past year by Covid. Since March, have been visiting friends and family in Brazil. Will return to the USA in May where we plan to get back on the road. Still write poetry from time to time and am always taking photos. If anyone is interested, when we came to America in November of 2016, my wife and I started a FaceBook page/blog Rondi's Great Adventure. Like or follow that page and when we head your way, would love to stop in to see you. Plan to see Marc (remember him?) next fall when passing near L.A. Blessings on each and every one of you. Joe At Forks In The Road We met early, like a Monday; by Friday we were friends Neither one suspecting that this week might one day end Bound by forks we chose; or agreed to build together Exploring with a faith that love shared grows forever Longtime friend, true chum, old mate, one same as a brother Whatever friendship offers; it’s found within the other Sharing better natures, our guide is that yet shared Quiet when required; listening whispers, “Cared.” Never fearing experience nor dependencies allowed In resilient terms, with bonds of steel, devoted and avowed Thank you, friend, for lessons learned by staying on that road And as the trail winds to its peak, your back that shared my load

    I didn't join 15 years ago, but I do my best to *bump* the "All Things Music" subset. Ever since Last.fm terminated all forums and fan posts, I've been hanging out here to see if there is "Life on Mars." (It seems to be very sparse.) Folks in search of Music on the Interweb don't have many choices these days, between "Buy 'N Large" (Apple) or "We Think You Like This?" (Spotify). For really obscure music, I sometimes drop by CD Baby, if a "Toy Cows in Africa"-like track catches my eye/ear on YouTube. So now I travel the "Roads to Moscow" while "Dancing in the Moonlight," on the way to "Scarborough Fair.";) Patrick Abe

  16. Hi from just over 10 years in the future. I belive the answer to your question is L'Amour toujours (I'll fly with you) by DJ Gigi D'Agostino.

  17. I like having defensive players in Kevin, for exactly the reason you mentioned, it's just kind of fun to move them around and see how many extra points you can garnish.. I'd missed that. I'm ready to go, hopefully my football team is slightly better than my baseball team this year. Good luck everybody!!

  19. Uncle Joe was surely one of the good guys. Always funny and friendly to everyone. (Thank you to Edna for letting me know about UJ's passing). You know, this Topic is like an actual wake. You don't see family and friends for years until somebody dies...then you realize you miss them all. I do miss you guys.

  20. Y'all thought you'd got rid of me But my life is meaningless without my Fin and Farin. Coming back here reminds me of all our time together, and makes me a bit sad. I don't know where they are (or even if they're still alive???) but I hope they're happy. (Joined at 17, now 32 and living a life i never imagined for myself !)

    Cave in Hall of Fame

    [big]Cave enters Aria Hall of Fame on his own terms[/big] [smallest]October 29, 2007[/smallest] [smaller]Source [/smaller] SINGER Nick Cave has accepted his induction into the Aria Hall of Fame, but it was on his own terms. The Australia-born songwriter last week said he was "dreading" tonight's induction during the annual music awards. But on the night, he was gracious in accepting the honour. However, there were a couple of conditions - that his band mates from The Bad Seeds and his former band The Birthday Party be inducted as well. "I cannot really accept this until we get a few things straight," Cave told the crowd at Sydney's Acer Arena. "What I can't figure out is why I am up here and The Bad Seeds aren't? "I would like to do a bit of inducting myself." Cave then thanked the members of The Band Seeds and The Birthday Party, the 1970s Melbourne gothic rock band which launched his career, for all their work with him over the years. "I would like to, by the power vested in me, induct these people also into the Aria Hall of Fame." Cave also thanked his mother, his wife Susie Bick and four sons. Later, he told reporters there were a few other Australians artists he would like to see join him in the select club. "Is Kylie in there?"asked Cave, who recorded the duet Where The Wild Roses Grow with Kylie Minogue in 1996. "She f---ing well should be!" AAP And there's a slightly older article on his reluctance . (I wanted to make the title something to do with "Cave" and "Hall", but I'm not as good as RJ at these things. Any suggestions?)

  27. I was wondering if anyone out there knows the meaning of Stevie Wonder's 1982 hit Ribbon in the Sky? I love that song; it has its own meaning to me, but is there a general one most people use? Thanks for your help!

    Song/Video of the day

    Thirty years ago, Kelly DeLima formed "Kapena," a "Brownbags to Stardom" contest Kaimuki high school band that went on to bigger and better things. Brothers Tivaini and Teimomi Tatofi returned to Tonga to start families, and Kelly eventually got his kids to play. A reunion happened recently, and local music program "Hi Sessions" recaptured that old Reggae magic. Who/what is "Kapena"? What is "Masese" about? So, what else did Kapena do?

    Sorry Kevin. Blue has been doing that to me all year. I was always 1 minute late. I like the playoff format. BTW; It seems like an awful amount of injuries this year. My team is different every week.

    An excellent call, Kevin. I have always hated the "no cut" rule. How often do stars get injured in football? It does not make any sense to be stuck with them if they can't contribute to your team.

    I'm definitely interested. Check out espn's fantasy leagues, Kevin. I belong to several leagues in both Yahoo and ESPN, and I find ESPN's leagues more user friendly. Just a thought.

  40. The Who kicked off the North American portion of its 50th anniversary tour tonight in Tampa, Florida. The British rock legends actually have two separate stateside legs scheduled for this year, with the first winding down May 30 in Forest Hills, New York, and the second running from a September 14 concert in San Diego through a November 4 show in Philadelphia. The trek, which has been dubbed The Who Hits 50! tour, is being viewed by some as “a nostalgia trip,” with the band looking back at its long history by playing a bevy of its classic songs, as well as a few select rarities. At a recent press event, The Who’s two surviving founding members, singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend, had slightly differing views on how to characterize the tour. Daltrey agreed that the trek was “a nostalgia trip,” noting that when the band’s plays its old songs, it brings fans “back to the time when [they] first heard them.” He added, “I kind of accept all that now, and I’m very happy with the fact that we’ve been around this long, and can still do it and still do it well.” As for Townshend, he said he views the outing more as a multigenerational celebration, and not just simply a commemoration of the group hitting the half-century mark. Explained Pete, “It’s a celebration of the fact that when people gather together to be in the company of a band and their music, they’re celebrating not only their own experience but, you know, sometimes too this will be a grandfather who brings his son and his son’s wife and their children.” Townshend also maintained that he finds it “very poignant” that he and Daltrey are still performing together after so many years, while adding with a laugh, “On the other hand, it’s also a bit sad…You would have thought we’d find something better to do by now.” Speaking about what kind of set list fans can expect from the concerts, Daltrey noted, “We’re not gonna get away with not playing ‘Baba O’Riley.’ We’re not gonna get away without playing ‘Behind Blue Eyes’ and those ones. But it will be nice to do songs that we haven’t done.” Townshend added that tour will give them “the chance maybe to do a few things that are a bit different or a bit new, or we shall see.” Since The Who launched its 50th anniversary tour with a U.K. leg last November, the shows have indeed included some relatively obscure songs, such as the mini opera “A Quick One (While He’s Away),” “Slip Kid,” “So Sad About Us,” “The Seeker” and “Pictures of Lily.” American fans also likely will be treated to a few interesting gems. Both Daltrey and Townshend have insisted that The Who Hits 50! Tour will be the last major trek the band will do, although no final show has been scheduled yet. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts are serving as the opening act for nearly all of The Who’s 2015 North American concerts. Here’s a full list of the band’s stateside dates: Leg One 4/15 — Tampa, FL, Amalie Arena 4/17 — Miami, FL, AmericanAirlines Arena 4/19 — Jacksonville, FL, Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena 4/21 — Raleigh, NC, PNC Arena 4/23 — Duluth, GA, The Arena at Gwinnett Center 4/25 — New Orleans, LA, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival* 4/27 — Austin, TX, Frank Erwin Center 4/29 — Houston, TX, Toyota Center 5/2 — Dallas, TX, American Airlines Center 5/5 — Kansas City, MO, Sprint Center 5/7 — St. Louis, MO, Scottrade Center 5/9 — Louisville, KY, KFC Yum!

    Jim Morrison

    I just finished reading No One Here Gets Out Alive, Jim Morrison's biography. Wonderful Read by the way. Anyway, just wondering about what people think about his death. No Autopsy, No Doctor or Police Signature, No-one saw his dead body but Pamela Courson. Apparently. Is he really dead?
