    Music that moves you?

    I have to say that almost any music that I've heard that was 'Buddhist' has failed to strike a chord with me...but sometimes I think I pick up some almost-Buddhist thoughts in the lyrics of various pop songs.

    "That was that and this is this,
    you tell me what you saw,
    Then I'll tell you what you missed,
    When the ocean met the sky,
    (you missed, you missed)
    When time and I shook hands and said 'goodbye',
    (you missed)
    When the earth folded in on itself
    (you missed)
    and said 'good luck',
    For your sake I hope heaven and hell,
    (you missed, you missed)
    Are really there but I wouldn't hold my breath,
    (you missed, you missed)
    You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?
    (you missed, you missed)
    You wasted life, why wouldn't you waste death?"


    And also:

    "Everyone's afraid of their own life,
    If you could be anything you wanna be you'd be disappointed, am I right?
    No one really knows the ones they love,
    If you knew everything they thought about you'd wish that they'd just shut up"


    (Both of those are Modest Mouse songs)


    On another note, some music just strikes a chord with some other part of me:

    "Your father made fetuses with flesh-licking ladies,
    While you and your mother were,
    Asleep in the trailer-park,
    Thunderous sparks from the dark of the stadiums,
    The music and medicine you needed for comforting,
    So make all your fat fleshy fingers to moving,
    And pluck all your silly strings and bend all your notes for me,
    Soft silly music is meaningful, magical,
    The movements were beautiful,
    All in your ovaries,
    All of them milking with green fleshy flowers,
    While powerful pistons were sugary sweet machines,
    Smelling of semen all under the garden,
    Was all you were needing when you still believed in me,
    Say what you want to say!
    And hang for your hollow ways!
    Moving your mouth to pull out all your miracles,
    For me,"


    AND also:

    "And you mom would stick a fork right into daddy's shoulder,
    And dad would throw the garbage all around the floor,
    As we would lay and learn what each other's bodies were for,

    And this is the room one afternoon I knew I could love you,
    And from above you how I sank into your soul,
    Into that secret place where no one dares to go,

    And your mom would drink until she was no longer speaking,
    And dad would dream of all the different ways to die,
    Each one a little more than he could dare to try...."


    (Those were both from 'Neutral Milk Hotel')

    Lastly, some just appeal very powerfully to Borderline Personality Disorder:

    (Sung rapid-fire in one breath with ukuleles and a music box as accompaniment)
    "Don't fall in love with me yet
    We only recently met
    True I'm in love with you but
    you might decide I'm a nut
    Give me a week or two to
    go absolutely cuckoo
    then, when you see your error,
    then, you can flee in terror
    like everybody else does
    I only tell you this cause
    I'm easy to get rid of
    but not if you fall in love
    Know now that I'm on the make
    and if you make a mistake
    my heart will certainly break
    I'll have to jump in a lake
    and all my friends will blame you
    There's no telling what they'll do
    It's only fair to tell you
    I'm absolutely cuckoo"


    And:

    "I don't wanna get over you,
    I guess I could take a sleeping pill,
    And sleep at will,
    And not have to go through what I go through,
    I guess I should take prozac, right?
    And just smile all night at somebody new,
    Somebody not-to-bright but sweet and kind,
    Who would try to get you off my mind,
    I would leave this agony behind,
    Which is just what I'd do,
    If I wanted to,
    But I don't wanna get over you

    Cause I don't wanna get over love,
    I could listen to my therapist,
    Pretend you don't exist,
    And not have to dream of what I dream of,
    I could listen to all my friends,
    And go out again,
    And pretend it's enough,
    Or I could make a career of being blue,
    I could dress in black and read Camus,
    Smoke clove cigarettes and drink vermuth,
    If I was seventeen,
    That would be a scream,
    But I don't wanna get over you.."


    So...what music hits you where you can't hide?

    (Both of those were 'The Magnetic Fields' from the excellent album 3 disk album "69 Love Songs")

    Day, end of day
    Each hanging spiral
    Where is the shore
    From this clear blue silence?
    Up to the heavens that you daydream,
    Remembering the sun and the deep green ivy

    I know that sleep walking too
    In trying to be free
    Of all this damage in my eyes
    Making confusion in my mind
    When I hear a resurrection song

    Night lays me down when I'm fading
    When I can't go home because they hate me
    To sing that resurrection song

    Day, end of day
    Each hanging spiral
    What do you make
    Of this clear blue silence?

    Now that the engine driver
    Has grown to be a deep sea diver
    And the street has got no end,
    You'd better keep your heart strong, little friend
    Thought I heard a resurrection song

    I'm on my way up to Canaan land
    I'm on my way up to Canaan land
    I'm on my way, glory hallelujah, I'm on my way

    Had a mighty hard time, but I'm on my way
    It's a mighty hard climb, but I'm on my way
    I'm on my way, glory hallelujah, I'm on my way

    All along the way, Satan lies a waitin'
    Every night and day, Satan lies a waitin'
    Hear me shout and pray: "Get behind me, Satan,"
    I'm on my way, glory hallelujah, I'm on my way

    Fight the Devil and pray: Lord, I want to climb higher
    Chase the Devil away--Lord, I'm caught in his fire
    Fight the Devil and pray: Lord, I want to climb higher
    I'm on my way, glory hallelujah, I'm on my way

    But. I agee with you. Just recently, a Mexican pop singer, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqU3iknmj9E[/video]]Julieta Venegas, came up with a new CD and one of her songs just gave me that Buddhist tingle. :mrgreen:

    Her song "El Presente" ("The Present").

    El presente es lo único que tengo
    el presente es lo único que hay
    es contigo mi vida con quien puedo sentir
    que merece la pena vivir

    Con el mundo como va
    se nos acaba todo
    ay, ay, ay, ay
    La tempestad y la calma
    casi son la misma cosa
    ay, ay, ay, ay
    The present is the only thing I got
    The present is the only thing that is

    Is with you my love with whom I can feel
    That it's worth living.

    With the world as it goes
    everything will come to an end
    ay, ay, ay, ay
    The tempest and the calmness
    they are almost the same thing
    ay, ay, ay, ay

    Wait, were we supposed to be sharing songs we found particularly Buddhist, or songs that resonated with our particular emotional natures and spiritual journeys? Perhaps I need to dig up some more uplifting Buddhist anthems to post :mrgreen:

    Don't Worry be Happy by: Bobby Mcferrin

    Here is a little song I wrote
    You might want to sing it note for note
    Don't worry be happy
    In every life we have some trouble
    When you worry you make it double
    Don't worry, be happy......

    Ain't got no place to lay your head
    Somebody came and took your bed
    Don't worry, be happy
    The land lord say your rent is late
    He may have to litigate
    Don't worry, be happy
    LooK at me I am happy
    Don't worry, be happy
    Here I give you my phone number
    When you worry call me
    I make you happy
    Don't worry, be happy
    Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style
    Ain't got not girl to make you smile
    But don't worry be happy
    Cause when you worry
    Your face will frown
    And that will bring everybody down
    So don't worry, be happy (now).....

    There is this little song I wrote
    I hope you learn it note for note
    Like good little children
    Don't worry, be happy
    Listen to what I say
    In your life expect some trouble
    But when you worry
    You make it double
    Don't worry, be happy......
    Don't worry don't do it, be happy
    Put a smile on your face
    Don't bring everybody down like this
    Don't worry, it will soon past
    Whatever it is
    Don't worry, be happy

    Hello!

    Michael Tiernan's "You hide" from his album "Spaces".

    Someone edited some clips from the movie "Baraka" and made a nice homemade videoclip to accompany this tune.

    Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdRKQhnbR1U[/video]]

    Hi Hans,

    I just wanted to say that I really like the video you posted. I have to say that is was very "moving" - I'd heard the song before but it was paired nicely with the other clips.

    Thank you!

    yes, i must agree, the drummer for the band "Treeleaf" really is exceptional

    as far as being moved, theres moved, and theres moved -- depending on the situation -- when the neighbor kid starts beating on his drums(he really can't play, unlike the treeleaf drummer), and i am out on the boat sanding, in 80 farenheit, in direct sunlight, i give in to the need to escape, and put on my mp3 player -- for such occasions, i will confess vintage ac-dc does the deed(i know, "this guy is the father to 3 daughters?!" -- you should have seen way back when i introduced my 15 yr old to red hot chili peppers -- the rest of the parents loved me) -- of course, this gets old very fast

    well, at least my mp3 player is a "zen stone"

    but for what i think you're looking for, i like the song "big music", by the waterboys

    "i will always climb the mountain
    because i have heard the big music
    and i'll never be the same
    something so pure has called my name"

    but for "love", of the romantic kind, theres only one song: "i only have eyes for you", by the flamingos

    I've mentioned this one before, but I think it stands to be mentioned again:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnXTi0wzfyQ[/video]]

    The lyrics make me think of some of Dogen's perspectives on time:

    She lives--no fear
    Doubtless in everything she knows
    Her time--unchecked
    The sureness of her flows
    She leaves herself inside you when she goes

    She lives in a time of her own

    You have always heard her speaking
    She's been always in your ear
    Her voice sounds a tone within you
    Listen to the words you hear
    Her time has no past or future
    She lives everything she sees
    Her time doesn't spin outside her
    It's in every breath she breathes

    She lives in a time of her own

    Her love whips hard like wind and stabs in eager pains
    She wins your thoughts and drives your inner planes
    She clears and shares a love that never strains

    She lives in a time of her own

    You have always heard her speaking
    She's been always in your ear
    Her voice sounds a tone within you
    Listen to the words you hear
    Her time has no past or future
    She lives everything she sees
    Her time doesn't spin outside her
    It's in every breath she breathes

    She lives in a time of her own

    Her eyes bring light, reflect the aura of her hair
    She sends, attends, behind an alpha stare
    She seeks the stars and spirals up their stairs

    She lives in a time of her own


    And how about this one?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feHgfmQeNQQ[/video]]

    All these nights have made me crazy
    I can't seem to come around
    Days of hiding in the sunshine
    Feeling nighttime's falling down
    Oh, I see another moon over me

    All these lies have got me thinking
    "Maybe this is just a thought"
    Soon my ship of thought is sinking
    Slipping through the thinking knot
    Pulling back the veil are monkeys
    Hidden there are monkeys more
    Someone spills a jar of honey
    Sticky monkeys crawl the floor
    Oh, I see another moon over me

    Re: Music that moves you?

    I have always enjoyed Stuart Davis for "Buddhist music", he is a little raw sometimes.
    Being from a gothic industrial background however I have always liked the song " We are" by Din Fiv...
    One world, two sides
    Who is wrong, who is right
    What's yours, what's mine
    Only shades of black and white

    One self, two minds
    One desires, one decides
    What is wrong, what is right
    Only shades of black and white

    We are young
    We are old
    We are helpless
    We are strong
    We are islands in an endless sea

    We are lost
    We are found
    We are hunter and the hunted
    We are objects of obscurity

    One life, little time
    No one knows the reason why
    People come, people go
    Here today, gone tomorrow

    We are alive
    We're not alone
    We can survive
    If we are one
    In a million years
    Are we still victims of our fear

    We are free
    What we are to believe
    Is what we will become
    We are day, we are night
    We are death, we are life
    We are skin, we are blood
    We are hate, we are love

    We are fire, we are stone
    We are flesh, we are bone
    We are moon, we are sun
    We are tool, we are gun
    We are rain, we are snow
    We are reap, we are sow
    We are rich, we are poor
    We are peace, we are war

    We are Heaven
    We are Hell
    We are


    Gassho,
    Damian

    thanks, steph, for picking my favorite early roky song -- i suspect the great lyrics were in fact done by tommy hall -- who, if i recall, wound up on skid row in san francisco -- but roky's delivery was incredible

    Re: Music that moves you?

    this isnt a song that moves me so much but it is a nice song non the less

    Van Morrison - Enlightnment

    Chop that wood
    Carry water
    What's the sound of one hand clapping
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is

    Every second, every minute
    It keeps changing to something different
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
    It says it's non attachment
    Non attachment, non attachment

    I'm in the here and now, and I'm meditating
    And still I'm suffering but that's my problem
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is

    Wake up

    Enlightenment says the world is nothing
    Nothing but a dream, everything's an illusion
    And nothing is real

    Good or bad baby
    You can change it anyway you want
    You can rearrange it
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
    Chop that wood
    And carry water
    What's the sound of one hand clapping
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is

    All around baby, you can see
    You're making your own reality, everyday because
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is

    One more time

    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
    It's up to you
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
    It's up to you, everyday
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
    It's always up to you
    Enlightenment, don't know what it is
    It's up to you, the way you think

    Re: Music that moves you?

    Not exactly a Buddhist song, but still...

    The Jam (Paul Weller)-- That's Entertainment
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mv55WsedLYI[/video]]

    police car and a screaming siren
    pneumatic drill and ripped up concrete
    a baby wailing and a stray dog howling
    the screech of brakes and lamplights blinking

    that's entertainment

    a smash of glass and the rumble of boots
    an electric train and a ripped up phone booth
    paint splattered walls and the cry of a tom cat
    lights going out and a kick in the balls

    that's entertainment

    days of speed and slow time mondays
    pissing down with rain on a boring wednesday
    watching the news and not eating your tea
    a freezing cold flat with damp on the walls

    that's entertainment

    waking up at 6 a.m on a cool warm morning
    opening the window and breathing in petrol
    an amateur band rehearsing in a nearby yard
    watching the telly and thinking 'bout your holidays

    that's entertainment

    waking up from bad dreams and smoking cigarettes
    cuddling a warm girl and smelling stale perfume
    a hot summers day and sticky black tarmac
    feeding ducks in the park and wishing you were far away

    that's entertainment

    two lovers kissing at the scream of midnight
    two lovers missing the tranquility of solitude
    getting a cab and travelling on buses
    reading the grafitti about slashed seat affairs

    that's entertainment
