#TuesdayTunes @TieDyeDude
#TheBeatles Abbey Road is one of my favourite albums, and Golden Slumbers one of my favourite tracks, which, I discover, should have a third composer listed: Lennon-McCartney-Dekker. The refrain at the end of each verse feels quite modern in this context.
I love finding stuff like this 😊📚🎼

Bookwomble For anyone who might be using text to speech software, the quote in my picture is:

“Golden slumbers kiss your eyes,
Smiles awake you when you rise;
Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby,
Rock them, rock them, lullaby.

Care is heavy, therefore sleep you,
You are care, and care must keep you;
Sleep, pretty wantons, do not cry,
And I will sing a lullaby,
Rock them, rock them, lullaby.“
- Thomas Dekker, 1572-1632

Bookwomble @Ruthiella @Deblovestoread I didn't know its origin myself until today, when I got to it in this poetry collection and was like, “Hey, wait a minute...!“ ? (edited) 11h

I‘ve been listening to a lot of country lately, and this has been one of my favorite songs. I love the romantic wistfulness of it. He has a lot of great modern country ballads. Plus it wins for understated album cover! 😂 #tuesdaytunes

BarbaraBB That cover is quite minimalistic indeed 😀 1d
TieDyeDude I think Cold is my favorite from that album. I don't know if he is on country radio much, but this is the kind of modern country I like. I'll take Stapleton over Jason Aldean every time. 1d

Megabooks @TieDyeDude same, but I like Big Green Tractor because it‘s so funny! Cold is fantastic, too. He carries such emotion in his voice. 1d
Megabooks @BarbaraBB not many country album covers are like this! 1d

Saudade | Traci Brimhall
post image

One of the two epitaphs of Brimhall's book of poetry is from a lecture by Nick Cave. The quote is a def, of Saudade. As Jasmine Garsd writes on the NPR site, “The concept has many definitions, including a melancholy nostalgia for something that perhaps has not even happened. It often carries an assurance that this thing you feel nostalgic for will never happen again. My favorite definition of saudade is by Portuguese writer Manuel de Melo: (CONT)

I found myself returning to Nick Cave, among other creatives, while reading this stunning book of poetry more for his spirit & his music than for what he had to say about Saudade. As the publisher's site states, “Set in the Brazilian Amazon, Saudade is one part ghost story, one part revival, populated by a colorful cast of characters and a recurring chorus of irreverent Marias.“ This is an (CONT)

vivastory imaginative collection that is carefully constructed with much to say about indigenous culture & what happens when different cultures clash. I loved this collection & will absolutely be revisiting this lyrical feverish gem of a book. Below is my playlist of 4 Nick Cave songs that I feel accompany the vibes of this book well:
