Song Lyric Sunday. Inside Our Heads. 14/2/2021.

Jim Adams

Hi everyone today is Valentine’s Day as well as Sunday. So I will wish you all a very happy day. Anywho it is Sunday and time for Jim Adam’s Song Lyric Sunday. Today’s prompt is Brain/Mind/Think …… So here we go .

So back to 1973, I was married and had one of the lads and we were living in Devon. Hubby was working long hours away so I was struggling a little on my own, in the middle of nowhere, no car, no support and few friends and a new baby…It would get even harder but it was all a learning curve, and I had the Floyd and Queen.. Number One son is still to this day a huge Pink Floyd Fan.

Brain Damage” is the ninth track[nb 1] from English rock band Pink Floyd‘s 1973 album The Dark Side of the Moon.[1][2] It was sung on record by Roger Waters (with harmonies by David Gilmour), who would continue to sing it on his solo tours. Gilmour sang the lead vocal when Pink Floyd performed it live on their 1994 tour (as can be heard on Pulse). The band originally called this track “Lunatic” during live performances and recording sessions.

When the band reconvened after the American leg of the Meddle tour, Roger Waters brought with him a prototype version of “Brain Damage” along with other songs such as “Money“. He had been playing the song during the recording of the Meddle album in 1971, when it was called “The Dark Side of the Moon”. Eventually this title would be used for the album itself. The song seemed to be partially inspired by their former band member Syd Barrett who had endured a mental breakdown. After road testing, the new suite entitled “A Piece for Assorted Lunatics”, the song was recorded in October along with “Any Colour You Like“. The piece represents Waters’ association with acoustic-tinged ballads, and along with “If” and “Grantchester Meadows“, “Brain Damage” uses a simple melody and delivery. David Gilmour actively encouraged Waters to sing the song, even though at this time he wasn’t particularly confident about his vocal abilities.[citation needed]

The song is somewhat slow, with a guitar arpeggio pattern similar to the Beatles‘ “Dear Prudence“. It is in the key of D major and features a recurring lyrical pattern and chorus.

Be Blessed Guys.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday, Mind

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “mind.”  Use it any way you think to. Have fun!

Here is  the pingback

Don’t  mind  me  she  screamed  at  the  truck  as it  sped  past  soaking  her  from  head  to  foot! Why can’t  anyone  be  mindful  of her? Let’s  face  it  she  has  to  pay  mind  to  everyone  else! Everyone  was  always  telling her, mind  your Ps   and  Qs, take  care, mind  how  you  go!

Tired  and  wet  she  trudged  home  only  to be reminded  with  each  step  how  much  she minded  no one  seeming to  see her  point of view! Here  she  was  wet  and  cold  late  at  night  and  all thanks  to  some  nameless mindless  driver  who  paid her  no mind  as  she had  stood  at  the  side  of  the  road!

Never mind  her mum  said  as  she  stood in the hall  shivering, go  and have a hot bath  and I  shall make  you  a hot  chocolate . She  started  up  the  stairs  beginning  to  feel  a little  better, thanks mum  she  called  over her  shoulder, I have had  really  bad  day! Never mind  her  mum  shouted  back .

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. Linda will post the prompt  on her blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance,  Linda  will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” or “Begin with the word ‘The’.”

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that Linda  and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of Linda’s post into yours.  Your link will show up in Linda’s comments, for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on Linda’s post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. Have fun!

Musical Theme: Freedom

Today’s  theme is Freedom, so I have found  what I feel expresses freedom in  all it’s  for. Freedom  of love , the mind , the soul  and the body.

I hope I have dug  deep enough. The posts should be self explanatory.

Freedom Fortunes

cry Freedom
Cry Freedom is a 1987 British drama film directed by Richard Attenborough, set in the late 1970s, during the apartheid era
of South Africa. The screenplay was written by John Briley based on a pair of books by journalist Donald Woods.
The film centres on the real-life events involving black activist Steve Biko and his friend Donald Woods,
who initially finds him destructive, and attempts to understand his way of life. Denzel Washington stars as Biko,
while actor Kevin Kline portrays Woods. Cry Freedom delves into the ideas of discrimination, political corruption, and the
repercussions of violence. read more here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cry_Freedom

Roots
Colonial times[edit]
In The Gambia, West Africa, in 1750 Kunta Kinte is born to Omoro Kinte (Thalmus Rasulala), a Mandinka warrior,
and his wife, Binta (Cicely Tyson). When Kunta (LeVar Burton) reaches the age of 15, he and a group of other
adolescent boys take part in tribal manhood training, ending with a ceremony, after which they become recognized
as men and Mandinka warriors. While trying to carry out a task to catch a bird and take it home unharmed, Kunta
sees white men carrying firearms, along with their black collaborators. Later, while fetching wood outside his
village to make a drum for his younger brother, Kunta is captured by black collaborators under the direction of white men.
He is then sold to a slave trader and placed aboard a ship under the command of Capt. Thomas Davies (Edward Asner) for a
three-month journey to Colonial America. During the voyage a group of rebels among the human cargo try but fail to stage
a mutiny and to take over the ship.

The ship eventually arrives in Annapolis, Maryland, where the captured Africans are sold at auction as slaves. John Reynolds
(Lorne Greene), a plantation owner from Spotsylvania County, Virginia, near Fredericksburg, buys Kunta and gives him the name
Toby. Reynolds assigns an older slave, Fiddler (Louis Gossett Jr.), to teach Kunta to speak English and to train him in the ways
of living and working as a chattel slave. Kunta, in a persistent struggle to become free again, makes several unsuccessful
attempts to escape. Additionally, to preserve his Mandinka heritage and maintain his Mandinka roots, he does not want to change
his name. An overseer, Ames (Vic Morrow) gathers the slaves and directs one of them to whip Kunta after his latest attempt to
escape and to continue whipping him until he finally acknowledges his new name.
