Song Lyric Sunday: Indie-pen-dance.

Jim Adams

This week Jim has asked us to use Indie Rock or Indie Pop songs as this week’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt. What is the definition of indinmusic? : Independent music (also commonly known as indie music or simply indie) is music that is produced independently from commercial record labels or their subsidiaries, a process that may include an autonomous, do-it-yourself approach to recording and publishing. The term indie is sometimes used to describe a genre (such as indie rock and indie pop), and as a genre term, “indie” may or may not include music that is independently produced, and many independent music artists do not fall into a single, defined musical style or genre and create self-published music that can be categorized into diverse genres. The term ‘indie’ or ‘independent music’ can be traced back to as early as the 1920s after it was first used to reference independent film companies but was later used as a term to classify an independent band or record producer

Those of you who visit my blog regularly know that I am a true fan of Imogen Heap. I have put together a little collection of her more unusual music and video. I hope you enjoy! Plus a video where she explains her Mi Mu gloves.

I love  Imogen Heap, you may  of  already noticed that. Her  words  really  impact on  my  life.  When I  was  recovering  from  my  accident  she  kept  me  going  and  helped  me  to walk again. I would  say  to myself I  shall walk  for  one more  song, maybe  one  more  and  so on!

She  has  made  songs  that I  associate  with  joy  and sadness.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE. 💜💜

Jim Adams Song Lyric Sunday: Carte Blanche

Jim Adams

Well it’s Sunday again and time for Jim Adam’s to bring us our prompt for this week. Jim is giving us Carte Blanche this week, here’s what he had to say. “It is User Choice again here on Song Lyric Sunday and this gives you the option to choose whatever you like.  We had this before on October 4, 2020, so it has actually been two years and I thought I would bring it back again, because it brings so much variety (not because I am getting lazy).  I was thinking that maybe it would be a good idea to make this an annual start of October prompt, please let me know your thoughts on that.  So go your own way, or do your own thing, as this is supposed to be all about having fun today.”

So I gave this a lot of thought and I came back as I often do to Imogen Heap. It was here music that was the soundtrack to my learning to walk again after breaking my back , both times! In all honesty I believe her music really helped my recovery.

I have chosen a live version on Imogen playing Just for now, showing how she builds up her music , layering and recording and playing back her sounds before she invented her Me Mu gloves. Below is a video where Imogen explains how her gloves

Crystal clear water flows fast, reflecting gentle rainbow colours.
Foolishly we step in, suddenly feeling the strong undertow
Clear and present danger strikes fear in our hearts, clear waters deep.

Song Lyric Sunday. Computers and Telephones.

Jim Adams

It’s Sunday December 19, 2021 Our prompt from Jim Adams for Song Lyric Sunday is : lyrics associated with electronic communication devices (pagers, iPhone, Android, fax machine, computer, TV) suggested by Amy Braun, ai welove music aisasami.

Okay Everyone, yes everyone know I am totally enamoured with Imogen Heap. Over the years her music has delighted and inspired me, she even gave me encouragement whilst I was relearning to walk. Yes she answered an email I sent her.

Anyway I digress, back to the prompt, the song I have chosen is Me the Machine by Immie. The song is all about Immie being one with her computer, her gloves and music!

A blip in the algorithm
A break in the clouds
Soft circuits, jumping
Soft circuits, jumping
The pin codes of happiness
Access denied
I’m switching to manual, switching to manualOh, share a scent of that sweet summer breeze
A love for a squeeze
How can you teach me these things
Me, the machine can dreamAn acquaintance with benefits
A work in progress
Downloading romance, downloading romance
Relationship asterisk
This footnote’s in plain text
Marking your words, marking your wordsStage one, initialize moments of time
To wine and dine with neurons that know how to love
Oh me, the machine can dreamI can’t do everything
And I’ll get over it
I can’t do everything
And I’ll get over it
I don’t wanna be everything!
I just want to feel
A part of itOh, share a scent in a sweet summer breeze
A laugh or a squeeze
How can you teach me these things
Me the machine, me the machine (can dream)
Me, the machine can dream
Me, the machine can dreamSource: LyricFind

I shall let Immie tell you how the song was written, made and performed and all about her gloves.

This video is how the gloves have moved on!

Of there has to be a bonus track and that is Telephone by the glorious Lady Gaga featuring Beyonce. Words in video.

Telephone” is a song recorded by American singer Lady Gaga for her third EPThe Fame Monster (2009), the reissue of her debut studio album The Fame (2008). The song features American singer Beyoncé. The song was written by Gaga, Rodney JerkinsLaShawn Daniels, Lazonate Franklin and Beyoncé. Inspired by her fear of suffocation, Gaga explained that the lyrics preferring relaxing on the dance floor to answering her lover’s phone call are a metaphor, the phone calling her representing the fear of not having worked hard enough to succeed. With the track succeeding her fifth single from The Fame, “Paparazzi“, the duet additionally embodies a fear of being suffocated and trapped by the media. Originally, Gaga wrote the song for Britney Spears, who recorded a demo. Musically, “Telephone” consists of an expanded bridgeverse-rap and a sampled voice of an operator announcing that the phone line is unreachable. Beyoncé appears in the middle of the song, singing the verses in a rapid-fire way, accompanied by double beats. The song received positive reviews from critics who frequently noted “Telephone” as a stand-out track from The Fame Monster. It was Grammy-nominated for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals in 2011. “Telephone” charted in a number of countries due to digital sales following the album’s release, namely in the United States, Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden and Hungary. The song was particularly successful in Europe where it reached the top of the charts in Belgium, Denmark, Hungary, Ireland, Norway and the United Kingdom. According to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, the single sold 7.4 million digital copies worldwide in 2010 alone, making it one of Gaga’s best-selling singles.

Happy Sunday Everyone 💜

Nonsense Lyrics!

Jim Adams

Our host the very lyrical Jim Adams again hosts Song Lyric Sunday. This week December 12, 2021 songs with Nonsense lyrics suggested by Amy Braun, ai love music aisasami.

Two songs this week Adiemus by Karl Jenkins and Mic Check from Imogen Heap.

.

Adiemus” is a world music song written by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins and performed by Miriam Stockley with Mary Carewe. It was recorded by the Adiemus project and officially released on the 1995 Adiemus: Songs of Sanctuary album.

“Adiemus” was written in 1994 by Karl Jenkins and premiered in a 1994 Delta Air Lines television advertisement. The song was also used in some Delta in-flight videos. Jenkins chose singer Miriam Stockley as a lead vocalist due to her wide range of intonation and Purley resident Mary Carewe for additional vocals. The London Philharmonic Orchestra also performed.

The main idea was to create a modern song using classical forms, such as rondo and ternary. The lyrics themselves have no meaning. The vocals are simply used as another instrument to make music and not to convey any message. The song, written in D minor, is a mix of African-tribal and Celtic-style melodies.

The song was also used as a soundtrack within the Italian TV programme Ciao Darwin and as the opening titles music on the Biblical series Testament: The Bible in Animation.

The song is also often misattributed to Enya, primarily due to a television advertisement for Pure Moods featuring both Karl Jenkins’ “Adiemus” and Enya’s “Orinoco Flow“.

Song Lyric Sunday: Human Connections.

Jim Adams

It’s Sunday again and time for Jim Adam’s Song Lyric Sunday, today is October 17, 2021. The prompt this week is – Communication, Information, News, Telephone suggested by Di of pensitivity101. Brilliant choice Di.

I picked Telemiscommunications because it is about s couple trying to share news, information and to communicate on the phone….and due to the state of all our lives today failing!

.

Telemiscommunications” is a song by Canadian electronic music producer Deadmau5 and English singer Imogen Heap. It was released on March 12, 2013 by Ultra Records as the fifth single from Deadmau5’s sixth studio album Album Title Goes Here and the seventh single from Imogen Heap’s fourth studio album Sparks. The song is an electropop ballad whose lyrics depict a dysfunctional phone conversation.

Work on “Telemiscommunications” began after Deadmau5 emailed Heap. According to Deadmau5, the two never met in person, and only sent two emails and made two phone calls to one another during the making of the song.

Below is the explanatory video of how the song and video were put together. I really think it so interesting.

“Telemiscommunications”
(with Imogen Heap)

Hey babe, how’s your day been?
No, you first..
Oh.. what? The delay’s quite bad
Yeah, sorry..
Where are you, I can’t really hear you
A taxi distracted..
Anyway you.. You were saying?
Wait, uh..
Now they’re waving me over
Can I call you back?
Yeah, everything’s fine
Why am I.. I don’t know why
I probably just need sleep
It’s been a busy week
Sorry, I’ve got to go
So, ok.. bye

This is just so unlike us
Cut back to horizontalisms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact versus tele-miscommunications

Plan foiled
The sirens pass by
Kids screaming
The longest public announcement
Reach check-in, finally got through
Running for a flight, shoes off
You’re calling voicemail
In joke, group laughter
Closing scenes in a meeting
Angel (angel) why didn’t you tell me?
One second, someone needs directions
Can’t you see I’m on the phone?

This is just so unlike us
Cut back to horizontalisms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact versus tele-miscommunications

So unlike us (unlike us)
Cut back to horizontalisms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact versus tele-miscommunications

Did I tell you I loved you today?
Did I tell you I loved you today?
(kiss kiss)
Did I tell you I loved you today?
Did I tell you I loved you today?
Did I tell you I loved you today?
Did I tell you I loved you today?
(kiss kiss)
Did I tell you I loved you today?
Did I tell you I loved you today?

And of course there’s always this song too. No explanation needed.

Happy Sunday Everyone. 💜😂💜

Last Night of the Empire. Imogen Heap.

My heroine Imogen Heap, and her last video. Last Night of the Empire.

How it was made.

Why because I can , and because I love it and her!

A little Immie share and a plug for the Royal Albert Hall.

Yesterday Immie released the video she had made in March for the 150th Anniversary of the Albert Hall.
