Song of the Day – ‘Promises Promises’ by Incubus

Promesse Promesse

 

Everybody know what an Incubus nut I am.  Say no more, wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more…ANYdrool.  Here’s Promises Promises from the bands’ latest album, If Not Now, When?

And because I’m an oddball, here are the lyrics in Italian. Look ’em UP, Donna, if you’re so inclined.

Sono solo 23 per un’altra ora, prendere o lasciare
Io sono un fan di tuo e ho bisogno di un buon errore
Io non sono un peccatore o predicatore, tutto quello che ho è leggermente di mano
I giochi di prestigio per tutti i ragazzi della band

Bambino potrei essere il coniglio nel cappello?
Mi altalena se mi mano, la mano me la mazza

Sono sulla strada di minor resistenza
Preferisco rinunciare a che cedere a questa
Così mi prometti solo una cosa, vero?
Basta che non mi fanno mai promesse
nessuna promessa

Non ho mai fatto prima, promesse, promesse
Ma mi sto godendo l’illusione e le cose che il mio corpo dice
Ora mi vedi, ora non lo fai, oh quanto bene si scomparire
Quali sono in esecuzione da e posso interferire?

Bambino potrei essere il coniglio nel cappello?
Mi altalena se mi mano, la mano me la mazza

Sono sulla strada di minor resistenza
Preferisco rinunciare a che cedere a questa
Così mi prometti solo una cosa, vero?
Basta che non mi fanno mai promesse
nessuna promessa

Ti amo, Brandon Boyd.

Song of the Day – “No Scrubs” by TLC – RIP Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes

TLC
The talented and gorgeous Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes

Man. Nine years ago today TLC’s, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes died in a car crash while vacationing in Honduras. Tragic. Those three girls went through so much together and made such a huge contribution to R&B in the ’90s. I loved them. Their single, “Creep” was one of my favorites, along with “No Scrubs”.

Let’s listen and dance a little…for Lisa.

And just to show you how much TLC was loved, I’ve included a quick audio clip of Incubus (one of my favorite bands, as everyone knows) covering “No Scrubs“. This is so awesome, I wish they had full-on recorded it like they did with Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy“.

We’ll never forget you, Babygirl.

Christmas Present from Incubus: Benefit for Chilean Miners in Santiago – GORGEOUS VIDEO

Incubus - 2010

Yeah, we all know part of me lives in the year 2000 when it comes to Incubus. Can’t help it.  The band has just released a Christmas present to their fans…and to the people of Chile.

“Back in October, Incubus traveled to South America to play 4 shows and take a break from writing songs for their new album. While in Santiago, Chile, they played a special show to benefit the families of the miners who had been trapped underground. It was truly a special night for the 1800 fans in attendance. And now, finally the rest of the band’s fans around the world can get a look at what was going on that night. We hope you enjoy it.”

The band were diligent about seeing that all proceeds from the benefit concert for the miners’ families went where they were supposed to go–to the FAMILIES.  Meeting with dignitaries and other “suits”, Mike Einziger and manager Steve Rennie, were given an education about how the mining accident occurred and continued their bond with the people of Chile.

Incubus also worked with a Chilean “pick-up” orchestra for a full day in a recording studio, producing some really gorgeous sounds, including a cover of The Rolling Stones’ Paint it Black, as a gift to their manager, Steve.

Excuse me while I swoon…VIVA INCUBUS.
