oh so nice
You've done good. I imagined I was a judge on The Voice when the second voice came in... only, I had already pressed my button by then!
hits me in happy music spot ;)
I take my hat off only for you
Mnogo mi haresva.
that awkward moment
maaan... I've had the NYC tune faved for months in my sndcld!
Imagine, this wouldn't exist if her sister hadn't needed a place to store her piano. Makes me want to buy all my friends a musical instrument.
Когато няма рожденни дни и сватби... Пък и Микаела не ми е писала все още, а знаеш, че не умирам да ходя до София...
И кога точно викаш моето ТУК трябва да стане нашето ТАМ?
Нося се из тоя канал аз, заради обещания двучасов сет ТАМ.
Тъкмо вчера го слушах на канала на Majestic Casual и си мислех, че ми трябва по-голяма тераса :)
Аз да съм казала нещо за Blue Hawaii. Трай си там :)
К'во да те правя.
Още една година, Lyles, ще избиваш рибата в моя водоем на душата. Риба много. Избивай!
beautiful song, nice one lyles!
ps. it's lord huron, not hurdon ;)
Random facts: they changed their name to Pacific Air and rerecorded this track.
what i great find, Lyles.
Lyles, that's my favourite song of 2012.
I wish my room had less furniture.
TFG Birthday. Of course.
I was confused for a long minute there! :)
Play songs and prosper, Lyles.
how do you like them apples!
That's a big apple, Lyles :)
that's precious :)
Чакам да пристигнеш с ракия от баща ти, така че забрави за "denizens of grace"!
What are you talking about, we are the denizens of grace
OK, in the end of the month I promise I'll buy us a pack of cigarettes to smoke at the top of the city. However, I'm not sure if we could smoke so gracefully....
Nothing to be harshed, my conscience is clear :) Not only did I search before, I even openly admitted afterwards.. that's called integrity!
ps. nice 4/20 reference
Oops, totally looked for M83 before uploading this thefeelgood.com/kliun/2012-05-02?s=r You can try, it still doesn't appear in searches!
Saw this cover on Pitchfork and I was like, go in heavens, Johny Depp has released an album!
It took me a couple of listens, but it has been confirmed - I like this. Nicely done, yet again.
happy to serve :) cheers
soul touching after quite a few days still.......itching..........this :discomfort: I sole thank U for!
damn you, half the time i think of a cool song to post, you already have it up. stop, thanks ;)
The damper you've put on this Friday is beautiful!
Bass, violin and a love song by a woman named Doe - I'll buy this album tonight!
it's mutual :)
even if I agreed, that's a non-issue - sometimes you sound more me than me as well ;)
But it sounds more like me than you :P
I haven't uploaded yet?! ... but it's on my commute playlist!
Hm...let me guess - powered by The Ground Beneath Her Feet?
hey, i missed you uploading this... conjured a smile when I tried to put it up and saw whats what :)
lyles, lyles :)
My legs hurt. You have succeeded in your mission, child. A reward is expecting you at the end of the road.
I tried, veela queen!
picture is an absolute killer....
wishful thinking babe
'sup, best track of the day?
bad, bad, bad Lyles. Found it on the Indie Shuffle, was to be my Thursday! :)
За теб си мислех като ми я пуснаха!
Поздравявам се с тази песен. :)
LOL. I know, I am so cool, I'm cold.
"If it ain't workin', take a whiz on the world" The dude gets me :)
Frickin' Lyles, with the cool again. :)
"When it's looking dark, punch the future in the face"
Will be all good, you know frickin' boxing.
i just yawned. make it good babin' babe.
you know me and Teddy operate through 'implied dibs'.
if you don't know it and it's mentioned to you in any way, shape or form by the other, it's dibs.
That said, "What is melodic, compositionally brilliant, possesses a uniquely compelling vocal and has the potential of being on best-of-tfg music lists?" I just riddled dibs for a future, yet undiscovered song. Deal with it!
that's saying something, when i didn't even call it dibs :)
най-после.... I've been sitting on this track out of respect for you ever since you first told me :)
7 months after the fact, I am reconnecting with this :)
when next repost day comes...
it's good that i post it then yes?
the hiphop purist and sways would've fought over that :)
only I myself will replace you.
so hurry before self-love takes over, go get that laptop, kid. ;)
Yea, we belong in a "Coffee and Cigarettes" vignette, where you'll be something like Jack White telling me about Tesla and how the world was an huge conductor of acoustical resonance. No worries I'll do the smoking... Or like the twins who fight about stealing each other's style... Well something in between and not quite :)
On July 20th, day after you joined TFG, sways wrote:
Dude.. The Black Keys following a National opener..
That's starting to read like a list of my favourite acts
See, Lyles, all your uploads later, third of which I hadn't heard even, how right I was. :)
go for it babin' babe! had no clue about this one.
i didnt have words for the antlers yesterday (such a great album, dude). Moving on, if I upload http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXPN2dbgu5g will it be the same as reposting you?
I like this. Better than the drake.
oh, honey, cool sound. i tell you, this middle of the night alcoholism thing i picked up making your birthday card really ties well with it.
this is my blog.
dude get a blog.
aww the one sbtrkt song on my list i havent uploaded yet :P
big feat for this small, skinny dude, considering you're sailing a musical man-o-war
keep up mate. wasn't it you that said this is war? this is for lianne, though not as exciting. but he floats my boat, with all those white sails and stuff.
heey.. this dude is on my radar...!
of course he'd be on yours too, all those acoustic shows on youtube are killing it!
Осмисли тоя ми ден. Благодаря ти!
auditorium was recommended by the anthropologist on friday night, and the saturday was spent listening to the ecstatic on repeat. it had me at selda bagcan's sample in the opening (so appealing to my turkish roots)
the guy just oozes his brand of vocal charisma - since he showed up on dexter, I've been listening to a lot more Mos Def. If I wasn't lazy, you would've matched with the hiphopopotamus :)
my favourite, ever so bickering pair.
'whatever' - the perfectly obvious comeback right now. I am trying to decide if you deserve the credit of setting yourself up on purpose to make me smile or something but.. nah. However, the credit of ever coming up with names that wont', cant' stick is all yours ;)
I notice a trend in your use of "ever", Posh Spice.
add "Words Gone" to the title, Lyles, because, isn't it important...
Other than that, you're ever cool :)
Nice and original, I like!
i mistrust blondes, but *high five* way to go, Lyles.
Unfortunately (not really), he's a blond blue-eyed drummer dude!
Is she a cool asian? cause... you know... cool Lyles.
This is uncanny! :D Saw them live on Saturday, btw. The housemate was on the guestlist and took me with.
lol... i had a Joy Formidable song lined up for this morning, Austere or some such and thought this is so Lyles, should I really and then overslept and rushed to work and here we are :)
you just did :)
that's one of my all time fav jams so i won't even mention that you're reposting Dani :)
You know I have a soft spot for it and don't give two f**ks about everyone else's opinion. I'm feeling this :) Love you though, Pickle.
Your Opinion: proper indie cool, buddy
did it, Lyles. am a proper fanboy. half a meter from Alice Russel, only her set list on the ground between us, which i naturally snatch at the end, in the spirit of souvenir keeping and to make it even more authentic, managed to spilled some tequila and crumple it a bit...
Is this the Ali, you used to talk me about? The songwriter who lives in NZ? He's pretty awesome!!!
You're like the phantom of the tfg, posting music when music should not be possible to post! Music BEAST! I like it. Will write soon.
Maybe it's only for the selected few, SWEET CHEEKS.
HONEY, this is absolutely super but don't waste good music when there's only 4-5 people that know and use the peter-branch :)
их, не беше нарочно, мерна ми се в плейлист-a. blame it on the shuffle :)
върна' ми го, следващата седмица си revisit-вах best female vocalist acts от 2011!!! :)
it's a numerical representation of "how good" is my channel, although normally they just tell me "maybe if you tried a little harder, you'd be like Lyles.. but you are not"
this is some heavily tattooed video btw.
information is sways.
this track has just hit the on-point point. love it!
a salt-lick smile, hm. had a smoke instead.
song to tear you up, Lyles, smile and lick salt.
I'd never heard of Lhasa before today.
а пък теди ми каза да ти пиша на стената, че съм фен на канала ти. спаси ми работния ден.
fave in 3 sec! i was sure
Lyles, honey, two days in a row now you're killing it.
oh my gawd, Lyles, who is this? who is this?
couldn't find an evil clown
why the sad clown, Lyles?
p.s. that's an artist I'd dig.
always loved that track - it cunningly peels off the layers of staleness and jadedness and brings out the good part in you. gentle, sharp and pulling at the right strings indeed.
The only mushy thing I dig these days are my mushy peas. Peace.
such a good day on thefeelgood :)
And that's why he's a judge on The Voice.
sounds just like you.
Why are we posting farewell-esque lines on my wall? Oh hai ones are better.
Would you still like to have the album? And yeah, I set people's expectations low.
the link you sent me, that was broken. the description - an understatement.
You're showing early signs of dementia already? =O
Well, I honestly can't remember which song it sounds like, what with there being so many young melodic rockers out there...
Huh? The one from last night? What's with the codespeak, mon cher?
This sounds like this other song, the one that is awesome. Remember?
Been listening to that track for a while on repeat now..and I could continue for a while lol nice simple song!
Оооооооооооооооо я марш
haha, qsno. tova e gotin nachin da shtipnesh neshto novo i gotino, ili kakto v tvoq sluchaj staro i gotino :)
vizh tova :)
oh kolko e dobur
I uploaded Powa 3 days ago!
I love the artwork for this! Songs good, too, but the artwork: wow.
"angsty feisty"... when do u get to the bad part? :p
hey, now, nobody warned me...!
Someone might've namedropped "Lyles" when talking about music to Danny *whistles*
I've had your songs playing for about 2 hours now... I must say, nothing has offended me so far :D
ау, Лайлс, фейвд фром да фърст 8-ноут и после чух че вокала му е немски...
сега съм торн! :)
Но гласа е красив!
Thanks :) I took it 3 years ago.
your channel is pretty awesome, not gonna lie.
Oh no you didn't!!!
... I want to be the Florence to your Machine!
oh mai gawd, u hv a guy frend whu sends u gud musics?
It does wonders for an indie-loving 24-year old that refuses to grow up, and her numerous states of mind. Oh and you know her angsty teenager episodes :D
Guys with beards...mmm... and glasses! Yea, just dial weird-o and I'll answer
I didn't have the heart to tell you that after I linked you the album on the love for this one song, I couldn't listen through it, it didn't do enough for me...! Especially since you mentioned it twice after ... But why wouldn't you?
Four guys who know how to wear a beard, I give them that.
ah, if it wasn't for his obsession with FF and 8-bit music :)
but I guess it still works and that makes it some sort of genial.
OMG, Beirut are there....
Take me with.
best of luck you :)
http://www.exitfest.org/line-up-2011 - with some luck I'll be there and hear them live :)
I warmed up slowly but have wanted to upload them for a long time now. And while cat photos are often the best part of Brooklyn's posts, this song is entirely deserving of a cat and the cat of it.
a year or so.
I will take a big break from uploading music.
It's a whole different story, enjoying it without tfg approval ..
and when I want to share, well, there's always mail blasts :)
I'm loovin ya guise... long time.
I feel we're in synch today, even if kids aren't feeling Neil.
thank you m'lady :)
is wonderful, Lyles. Just makes you love music.
Ако беше мъж и ми беше изпратил тази песен, вече щях да лазя в краката ти. Yes, I'm that easy :)
this track should come with a label "addictive". nice.
ох не можем да се разберем с тебе... а и в момента аз нямам сили да ти играя по свирката. има линк, няма рипост... дъра бъра...
I don't know if it's a wet your whistle kind of deal, but at 20 seconds I feel kind of robbed.
Is it not?
Funnily enough, now that the song is there, it's not the whole song.
Where's the song, Lyles? Where's the song!?
make home recordings and send them my way!
You know how sometimes you pick an instrument, get it to sound out a few notes and you just know that you and it were made for each other? Well, wasn't the case with my Uke, but I will persist!
aww a uke! i always wanted one, too. good for you! :)
I bought a ukulele yesterday.
torture me. softly.
it's like a best of Olafur Arnalds or Richter's little pieces, on a piano, injected with hope.
this is disturbingly delicate. mnogo gotino parche.
super stressed and physically hurt.
i'm paying full attention
i-do-i-do-i-choose-you... lyles-че... да внимаваш ;)
I knew that'd happen and always suspected you.
I've uploaded Neko Case three times and always replaced her before her day comes... That voice is big.
Love is not a victory match, it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah.
O-M-G, Lyles, the reposting police are on their way to arrest you ;)
Some days you are the statue, others - you are the pigeon.
I feel your pain.
You should see how I would feel like I was entitled to posting this track, since it's my favourite Aussie discovery covering an all time top 5 music collective of mine. Grrr.
They're Swedish, and I have no clue how they got the rights to rhyme to Dre beats
Who is this and how did they get the rights to a Dr. Dre beat?
oh i've seen the video of him playing the guitar :) oh my oh me.
i like his non-traditional attitude. one of them new generation multiple-threat actors/singers/whatnots.
simply put, yes, it's a textbook celebrity crush :D
mmhm - he's smart, talented, down to earth, funny, and manages to pull off sexy-hot-cute-badass (as a matter of factly) at the same time.
textbook celebrity crush material:
@teddyz cute is not what he aims for, let's try...um... shmexy
@sways you gotta be seen to be playin' the game, I guess
look at you groovin'
оо, my favourite, cutest celebrtiy. good taste lyles.
Yea... I know it took me a while to upload as well
Why haven't I uploaded this, Lyles...
I did know about it... Video is super fun!
WHY WOULD I EAT YOUR HOMEWORK?
oh good, i was sorta out of my morning l'esprit d'escalier anyway.
lets keep it friendly, my couch is the blushing kind.
No, that's me being up since 3 am. I am vain Sways, but not that much. I'll put on a private show next time I visit your couch. Maybe
is that a typo for being concerned as a turtle? how does that work?
a video of me jumping around? aww sweet cheeks are you alright, is monday treating you well?
Vids or it never happened.
Aww, thanks. I'm gonna enjoy that comment with a big smile on my face :)
very hangover friendly. good thinking, spammer Lyles :)
Our friend Itsko said this tfg chick Vanderlyles is the cat's pijamas and her music - the pijama's thread, or something in that vein, I am dumbing it down and butchering the reverence it was delivered with.
"aight, done spammin' yo wall gurrrl. peacin'" ... i'm turning you gangsta too! that's awesome.
Devil may care
Say what you will, but Morrissey clearly was obsessed with breasts....
p.s. so love it.
Actually, none of them. Two or three month ago I saw your comment on one of nothing but human posts (I thnik it was the one about Home)and that's how I find out. Hope you don't mind :)
Yes, I'm - every single morning with my first cup of coffee:)It's a pretty cool piece of you and sometimes it really makes my day.
The Smiths - Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others is a lovely, lovely, lovely song. And I really want to add it in my TFGI favourites so... :)
1. aww, ain't that sweet!
2. wait, when did you have kids? what did i miss again?
ugh.. i am so introducing my kids to this voice :)
This piece was made with the acoustics of my yard in mind, Lyles...! Sounds so good here...
Not having fun...
I've had this track since Oct 19 from some live session thing...
I listened to the album just the other day, Lyles..
Look at you, raiding the same blogs as me.
много приятно, Лайлс.
it's unprepared to handle condensed musical awesomeness, your browser.
'You have 1747 favourite songs.'
what a movie and what a soundtrack!... i've listened to it waaaay too much...
In fact I was expecting you'd not comment at all the whole day, and be like "ugh the copycat" :D
And I won't comment on this track and make you wonder 'why is he not commenting, it's his jam, was he wyatting us all this time...' but still, i won't speak a sound, type a letter, and you'll rage and do breathing exercises, forget about it for 4 minutes in the afternoon and find acceptance in the evening and in the evening too I will write a thousand word comment playing out this big memory metaphor of dipping old rnb jams in eletronic lo-fi haze, hitting a whole generation right where it hurts. That was the plan, only, I failed on the first step.
exactly, but it is today and it is this uploader ;)
i dunno, man... i think on another day, or another uploader, she would just not have liked this.
As eloquent as she can be, I don't really have to tell her much. See a song's enough. There something in our half-Saggi, half-Scorpio ways
hey, I tell Teddy almost the same thing! :)
There's something about the way she does not get me...
there's something about the way you get me...
ee mnogo si burza s otgovorite. !title e blog. sreshtnah edna ot tvoite pesni tam i se chudeh dali ne gi znaesh. ot vreme na vreme imat hubavi mixove
slushash li !title?
oh... my first re-post then... yay :D
... I was so going to post another of their songs, another, because this has been posted :)
but congrats on finding any mutual musical grounds, Lyles.
I can't hear you...
It's your coolness reflecting my efforts in coolness :)
Lyles, you're too cool.
If this was a competition, I'd be panting behind.
You say no, I am not playing your silly games...
But that's because Lyles, you're too cool.
I like this, Lyles.
Climaxes are besides the point.
Too bad I am not at home, so I could play it at a volume where I could get a proper sonic shower.
Some days you're the pigeon, other days you're the statue
it was rather a wish, Mondays tend to annoy people
so say the gainfully unemployed...
It's the only version I have, and it's from "The Alligator"
I don't like that second line... "basement of my brain"? They could've done better.
Live session, right? His vocal is drowning in the music but that same music is pretty great.
Мойта музика не е хубава като твойта. Но не мога да не отбележа, че нямаш нита една харесана песен от моите. Любопитно.
and this song sealed the melancholy start of the day.
I wasn't in love with this song. That was before the 3rd listening.
Mnooogo gotina pesen!
Correct. That's why it says end of "covers" week. You should check out the rap version :D
Yey, cool song. i loved it when i first heard it. i think it was pete seagar's version though
So if it's reached a point of praying, you're having doubts it won't be good?
Good call, Lyles.
Jamiroquai comes up with an album in a week or so...
I pray that it is good!
sedmicata mi na cover-i. niamashe kak da propusna tazi... sorry
Taia pesen ot koga mi sedi vyv future uploads.. :)
i like your style :)
i give them morning tries, evening tries, hot shower tries, cold shower tries... when i don't like them, i just don't like them. oh and i change my mind too
ah svidni moi...
did i tell you you suck today? oh yes, i did.
dude. it's the artists' photo, unlike your random-nude-for-the-sake-of-nudity uploads. This is a solo piano cover with a hot vocal. She looks almost shot down.. if not for them legs. How much more thematic can it get? ...
Some of my fav. lyrics - a life in a few verses.
dai malko discretion pone... da match-va thematically... "my baby shot me down... bang bang" ... nameri niakoia s pishtovi, tui-onui :)
Ne sym vinovna az, che tia se e razgolila i e atraktivno :D
You gotta be seen to be playing the game sometimes.
Ejj ama teia goli jeni gi slagate navsiakyde veche... :)
Takes the cake.
so much fun :)
This is so great!
Ох с теб не мога да споря... Винаги се чувствам прекалено тъпа за остроумни отговори. Отивам да си търся чинии и чаши и т.н.
It's called peer-endorsing.
If you show your appreciation in comment, studies have shown this increases the chances of a song to be faved.
But fine. I won't bother!
Ah, I see you don't check out the links I send you any more. Nice! I won't bother!
That a girl!
Love the number, the voice.
Let the quietly edging away begin
Tsk Tsk... you took all the fun out of it...
Your response ought to be smug or snarky or some such.
I feel robbed. I almost uploaded this song last two days and finally left it for tomorrow, to wrap up my week..>!!
Come oooon! Bad Lyles.
They want edge, they get edge, and then it's too edgy. They want mellow, they get mellow. Няма угодия
Don't blink. You won't miss me when I'm gone.
Standards. Standards. Standards.
Too sissy for Deerhunter
You can't trust me with The National, you should have known better.
i've had it as an option for over a month now..! my own fault to be beaten to the punch.
I guess Nico too
I feel like Sunday's Wax Poetic will go unappreciated again...
i like the story behind the picture.
Hence the rrrr... It's not for a morning sober coffee-head anyway
I think... I think given that mmmm musical arrangement, the lyrics are kinda half-arsed.
I'll miss TGFI
Their new album can't be out just soon enough
Way to not be cool, Lyles.
Now whisper me the name of that super dope piece...
All the more reason not to do it... I won't be the one to rob you of all the grinding and striving and achieving you'd otherwise have to do, were you not to take the easy life-completing-pat-on-the-head route.
Can I get a pat on the head? My life will be so complete
I was gonna crown my week with some Keys but ah, I cannot pout at this...!
aw i wish you were here. i gotta go check the schedules really, cuz i've heard that many lines are not operating anymore. sigh. it's gonna be a busy week.
unlike mine, your attempt succeeded today ;)
it's quiet around here today
glad you liked it :)
great track for a rainy kind of weather.
can i take you up on that offer? cus all i need is directions.
this feels very right today.
Well, what can I say...
As far as titles go, this one's pretty awesome.
they're just summer :) that's what they make me feel, regardless of the season
Dusted off their albums again this summer, after they stamped my last.
Why would you. Not like I hold back...
You're just more considerate about putting me into funny situation. Shame, Brooklyn, shame.
it's presently certain i'm gonna watch how much i share with you sways. :)
I meant simply to point out that we shouldn't be talking in probables, but in present certainties ;)
Modality of the verb is irrelevant here, imo.
Fine. I can.
i could totally crush on you based only on your musical taste.
It's ok Master. My momma said there're going to be days like this. And Yes I rest, being brutally woken up by my allergy at 4:30 and my damn neighbours. Yay.
pat on the head, Lyles, times ten.
you've done aces.
meanwhile, i occasionally don't fave good music when I know it well enough to sing along to.
go rest :)
I only keep track of the times your upload was better liked than mine -and- better than mine, not just some appealing-to-the-masses shit. And all this I do on the fingers of my left hand :P
sways, it amazes me how you keep track of those things.
he can also tell you the number of faves on most songs.
don't look at me, i didn't start the fire :D
and I just found out last week that my tequilla tolerance is better than that I have for wine, which was weird and expensive.
Also, we just broke a TFG commenting record. I'm proud of you two!
oh so true my fair lady, and since my alcohol tolerance has dropped shamefully, i better watch it with you, getting me drunk :D
there's nothing that a few shots of tequila can't fix.
Now Teddy can't call the party off, she's invested.
That's more entertaining than most summer flicks :P
I'm afraid i don't dance :D at all
LOL! .. what can i say, we come in eccentric ways..
so, Lyle, isn't dancing one of your life callings?! :)
Next she'll ask you if dancing is not one of your life callings. You tell her yes.
You know who also is a Sag, Brooklyn. Momtchil Krastev. It explains everything.
but of course she's a Saggi! of course! that explains everything. :)
I mean ооо божееее. I'm in the middle, more Scorpio than a "Saggy", never really cared :D
Just one of the things that Teddy gets unreasonably excited about... in this case, people with her own Zodiac sign.
What's that supposed to mean? Sigh
We can always find you a sofa to sleep on, if it came to that.
I don't have a problem volunteering mine, she is used to it. Or teddy will offer you her bed and sleep on the floor.
September is good, maybe Veronica will be able to join!
Brooklyn, pleaaase, your being sooo blunt. I'm as blunt as they come, but you've no finesse! It's ok though, you must be terribly excited.
Here's something that'll make you flip: Lyles is a Saggy.
Oh hai. I'd really love to meet you two. I'm not from Sofia and I don't really have someone to stay at there. So meet me up at the airport Sep 14 :D ?
oh no you didn't, sways!!!!
train-hopping like this! shameless!
and on top of that mocking my approach.
admit it! you need good old Brooklyn to teach you some things.
The short of it is, Brooklyn wants to organize a TFG parteeey in Sofia - it's her new obsession - so you will do well drop by our not-so-fair city? Or we can do it at the airport, what, end of august? ;)
I have to point out that I'll be seriously envious if you wrote to Her and not Me first, so facebrook friend me or something. firstname.lastname@example.org and look for the moustache. You'll kinda need to anyway, if you'll be taking a break from the tfg to be a responsible student. Also, unlike Teddy, I do all my stalking at other places, so it's mostly safe.
meet up? yes? yes.
this is my e-mail: email@example.com can you write me so i can have yours? :)
I do? Maybe.
Since we're playing with the words, I say..
"Is alright, Lyles, I am not much of an eater" or something.
You be good to yourself.
Yeah? Sorry to hear.
Tomorrow will be better and don't even get me started on next month.
Because we're so KOOL, we say uncool stuff ironically all the time... You just gotta be there to hear it.
First time I didn't know if you were a bloke or a bird or a lad or a lass or a mate or a totty or a chap etc. (got the UK slang pat down, yeah?), so I dude-d you.
I'd lecture you on the dangers of drinking alone, but I got half a bottle of wine in the fridge that is too good to let go to waste, so ... g'nite, lyles.
Dude, come ooon...!
Me and Teddy, we are in agreement that you're a pretty cool kid.
I was going to mention it next time you got angsty, say cool kids end up a'right, a'ight?
Now, you pull off a fifth of Tom's performance and you'll just be too cool for us. Well, me. Brooklyn, she'll disagree - she's -swollen- with confidence today, which is good thing, as normally she complains of having no ass to speak of that she could shake.
But is it a performance if there's no one to hear? What's with that?
Fine? I see. It must be the yogurt.
An answer - kinda. I have all the basics covered and then, I also use music to nudge me out of one disposition and into another (e.g. blue to dancy to endorphine high to silly chemical happiness despite 'too many troubles'). I mean, you've seen my channel, I'm not exactly a one-mood-man :)
Too funny, you are. :D My digestion is fine, thank you. ok, ok there was upward movement in some of my facial muscles.
Maybe I just worry too much
I'm not quite sure how I feel about the track. It's soothing. Are you one of those people (that includes me too) who like to have music for just about every situation and mood?
I see. Constipation. Awful stuff... ;)
Shoot some of this - open to interpretation, but title-appropriate to your situation - "Decisions", "Ready For The World"
I mean, come on.. is there really any doubt everything will be fine in the end...
I'm eating my yoghurt, having my coffee in my cutesy Disney Winnie the Pooh mug (Winnie's smile is supposed to be contagious). Sigh. I'm trying. I'm a little scared. Shitless. :D
A blue you, huh?
I spent time with it yesterday, after you posted the lyrics.
Swam up from my blues. This - all hope & affirmations!
To live and laugh and laugh, it's time for us.
Cheer up, lyle. You are going on a new adventure and no things are certain - and that -is- good.
Finally chased away the last of my friends and restored order.
Solitude used to be such a valuable commodity when I was living with my family. Now, I am glad for it... though my own demons are not always agreeable.
My shutters never went up today, my five potted flowers complained. That sun's crazy.. and my neighbours peep!
Maybe African kids have a reason to envy me a little. You.. not so much.
My upload for today is a little different now - I changed it with the song I ripped straight from my Beirut DVD. It's more what I intended it to be... more Sunday.
Enjoy your day. I'll see a bed about a book and a pillow about what pillows are for :)
It's about time that we fell in love
You know that I've been trying
It's about time that we had a laugh
You know that I've been crying
Too many people, too many troubles
Too many mouths are lying
If everybody laughed for just one day
You know that'd make me happy
Too many troubles, too many troubles
Don't know how we live so long
Too many troubles, too many troubles
It's time for us to live and laugh and laugh and laugh
It's about time that I said Hello to all those lonely people
When I was at the back who could never talk back through all the tears and sadness
You never really know who's there beside you
Who will be your comfort
If everybody laughed for just one day you know that'd make you happy
Too many troubles, too many troubles
Don't know how we live so long
Too many troubles, too many troubles
It's time for us to live and laugh and laugh and laugh
Correction: I didn't like the Jarreau version, I loved it. I overslept, having the whole apartment for myself, bc my family is on vacation. I'm not leaving the house unless I really have to, keeping the shutters down at all times. I enjoy this solitude and being with me a little bit too much. Don't like to argue about coffee and tea-lovers :) They all know what they like :)
And envious feelings are mutual, only mine are of a different nature. All good, though :)
I had a sleepover party.. but haven't slept a wink.
Heat. Dogs, Phones ringing at fuck-all-time.
Gave up on tossin' and turnin' at 6:30 and since then I stretched, took a cold cold shower and am on my third black tea (and ready to argue with whoever says that stuff is stronger than coffee... !)
Jarreau is.. a little bit different. You'll see. Maybe like it.
I'm in agreement. I'll always be in agreement, since it gives me great joy that I'm mentioned like five times and Teddy - once.
I also so envy you, Lyle, meeting thefeelgood for the first time now.
I just saw a microwave about hot water for coffee, and I am not yet willing to see the fridge :) yeah, taking one "five" :)
Never heard the Jarreau version, but heard the Quincy Jones and Herbie Hancook one. I'll check it out.
And I ain't popularizing my tags! I'm selfishly keeping them for me and the kids who obviously know where to look :D
Just one, huh? Good work ethic.
On to business, heard the Al Jarreau version? Some serious feel good stuff going on there.
Yeah, my tags... they are a work in progress.. and like myself, misleading. But thanks. That work-me-back-no-bones things has serious promise, you should populate it.
I gotta go see a fridge about a fruit now.
I'm dusting, in black&white shorts.
That's pretty much the definition... ;)
You're a milkmaid?...
That's so last year. Today I'm a French maid.
I'm in a good mood... Shhhh :D
A whole day without comments! Where's this world going to...
Had forgotten about her... pretty super. Oh mama!
I have to say this - your playlists are very flattering .. and just a little bit too funny :)
I leave for an hour and ...
You are going to comment on everything i post right?
We can joke about it now, yes?
Sad? Nah.. Really, no proverbial puppies were hurt.
Your bf is correct to scare you with Bioshock. Great cinematic chops. And it has its moments of scaring you shitless
Funny. Just watched (skipped through in 30 min) Sherlock again just a few hours ago. Is really quite entertaining. You should study it closely, get you prepped for England. I doubt much has changed. :)
Shuteye time. Early day and out on the road tomorrow.
The world's a better place when one less girl feels threatened by internet predators and creeps. ;)
It was always in-your-face kind of obvious to any would-be High Violet fan, but for what it's worth, I think the pipe dream was a very nice touch.
If the other feel-gooder who is doing her post-grad studies in the UK is any indication (that reminds me, I've to go write an email), no, you won't find the time. You'll occasionally remember about this place and us, maybe give it half an hour for nostalgia's sake, then hit the books... or etc. social activity of the night with your new UK chums. Summers are for sea and see - family and old friends, always on the move. It's a gloom future.. where the TFG is concerned. Now go out there and prove me wrong ;)
There were never any hurt feelings, just hurt puppies (that's a deliberate stretch, for the narrative's sake)... who should've known better.
Your leaving will be very unfortunate for the simple reason that you are apparently the closest thing to my own musical animal. Also, other kids are just not as psyched about Blakroc and stuff.
After your 4th? .. Then I don't want to imagine how you felt at your 8th. And 9th. The 9th was bad. Must've found out I'm harmless after. You know, if you stop posting, your account will be as good as gone? You'll never get an email notification. Or you could just ask one of the admins to be deleted. No trace... In a year, noone will remember a crybaby geek. I can't stop now. if I do, I'll have to start blogging or somethin' and that, that will be a bigger time sink. All the very best of us, we string ourselves up for music. You know.
Re: next month.
That's unacceptable. Just sayin'...
They don't really hand out career achievement awards... it's all about who is hot at the moment and who isn't... as hot.
It's even worse if you are winning while not trying!
Good stuff today.. don't know them.
5:0 faves now, on yesterday's uploads... the TFG is WAR! Kinda...
On our other subject - I give up, I give up, I've no more names to drop.
No, no, haven't met. Just know your photo with the kicks and this one, from somewhere.
I'll just assume you're one of Maria's friends, or Peter's, or studied in Greece, or took photography classes in Sofia, which would give us some mutual acquaintances, or something.
Doesn't really matter. It is getting weird, but that's just keeping within the boundary of my reputation ;)
Keep up the good work. (except, not too good, please... I mean 4 faves to 0, that's just humiliating!)
You're really doing a number on all the notable TFG users, judging from your growing list of faves.
Now, The National, I only really care for this one album, but I care strongly. Don't normally do the whole (indie) rock scene, complete with the, as you put it, sorrowful wailing drunks, but this one totally blindsided me - for one, serious musical chops. They know how to compose songs - you faved that Clogs track, yeah? Half of that is The National's fault. Second, treating the vocal purely as another instrument, Matt Berninger's tone just does things to me - like an down-to-earth but still larger-than-life Iggy Pop or something. Then there's the poetry, which is the stuff a sad drunk might write, but a sad drunk of the calibre of David Duchovny's character in Californication. Alcohol fumes mixed with some disillusioned, vintage wisdom and the occasional sharp hook.
In other news, didn't know your jazz-hat face, but this photo I do know, I do.. but it's alright - if I can't place you, then that is that - I've enough other more notable obsessions to care for. ;)
You're very welcome.
Hunting's done. Food on the table.
Her second album is by far the most interesting.
I also bought 3 tracks and pirated a couple of other LPs and it's time I go reconcile with my guilty conscious.
Oh whew. Is it safe to say enjoy your "hunting"?
Totally. The best of things... And yeah, I don't use enough smileys. It's a problem.
I'm assuming it's a good thing that last statement? I never know with you =D
I have this packed TFG hopefulls folder where I put songs that don't agree with my mood, but I'll want to upload another day. Masterswarm, Roslyn and A Little Bit.. and some City&Colour tracks were all there - so that was very amusing for me to watch.
First of yours I haven't heard before that I wanna go and find out more about.
You'll do exactly the same for/to me one of these days, it's coming.
No. That was mostly misplaced enthusiasm. Already made up my mind not to comment on anything before next monday, so enjoy the service in peace for the rest of the week.
OK I GOT THE HOBO PROFILE PIC ON. BUT I DON'T THINK YOU KNOW ME.
you are going to comment on everything i post right? sigh.
Natalie Portman said "I love Beirut".
Matthew McConaughey said "I love brushing my teeth".
Celebrities are actually very useful.
pff.. I don't know, I don't know... I know!
V. can't sue 'highest level' for violation of privacy or failure to protect personal information, cause we all know where the Terms of Service link leads to... ;)
lol... don't you question my lady-like qualities sways, you don't know nothing..
as for the conspiracy.. i gotta warn V, i have serious connections in thefeelgood at the highest level, she should be careful. ;)
Well, at least you were a good sport about it :)
I'll shelf the pants conspiracy for now...
Funny thing about Teddy, that must be the first she's been called m'lady.. don't think it'll stick :)
Have a good one, V.
smooth exit V.. one day i'll get you.
Outshine you two? Oh please, I could not. As I told Sways before, I post what I like and that's pretty much it. Bye now sir and m'lady.
We have a bet? ... Isn't this the kind of information I should be given before-hand, like, for instance, before I paint myself as a fb stalker creep type? Anyway, recognizing the pants clearly paints me the winner...!
I thought it was a 'strange big fish in Our pond' kind of situation and needing to find out who, what and whether to eliminate before she outshines us both...
seriously though... can you just tell us what's your name and what's the name of your facebook friend who posted the song that got you hooked?... we're having a bet here who will manage to get that information first.. i am confident that my straightforward, shameless approach will work best :)
Haha touche. You're the mister know-it-all.
AHA! So now I just have to stalk through some 10000 pictures on fb before you manage to proverbially take your pants off and you'll no longer be a mystery.... who knows stuff...
I'll go ask for some vacation time.
Ha, creep! :D Yes, those pants were on fb, on flickr, and on me right now :D
I don't think there's been a TFG song with more than 2 comments this year without my being involved so .. I'm involving myself to keep it that way.
I've nothing constructive to add, other than I can swear I've seen your pants on fb, V...
i'm glad you got hooked.
a facebook friend, who had account here, apparently, posted something from here one day, i decided to check it out and here i am :)
pure curiosity of whether i know you.. feelgooders are usually connected somehow.
why do you wanna know?
what's your name?
Tee hee, I'd gladly hear it :)
As for the posting, I just put up stuff that I like or has impressed me, or that is related to memories (Just like anybody else around here, I assume. And isn't that what the feel good is all about?) If people like it, good, if not, I don't really care that much anyway.
And thank you. Hopefully, tomorrow I'll wake up in a different country.
If you keep on posting from my fav. albums, I'll probably cook up a conspiracy theory.
But for now, you're golden in my book.
Have a nice trip :)
And a little bit like facebook, with that wall and shit, I obviously love to write on.
Looks like twitter, to be honest, all that following and follower count. Who gives a fuck really?
Oh, that's really, really nice!!!
People's English usage is rather obscure around here.
Ah, my bad then.
I was complaining, actually, to anyone who'd listen ..
I need new (to me) music influx and I haven't had any moments of discovery lately... I'm nostalgic for last July-August. .
As for Tiersen.. ok. I am awfully attached this his discography and know parts of it by heart - but who isn't - is musique suprême.
On a side note, I've done the no hands, eyes closed thing and I associate it with the feeling of panic! ;)
This song makes me smile. Always. I'm glad you loved it too. Yay. Enjoy.
You young feel-gooders, so sure and so fresh in your tunes...!
I haven't fallen in love with a song since Sunday...
I might as well turn this thing into a musical diary...
Not necessarily so, sir =)
"Knowing stuff" is the default setting of girls...
I'm just a girl, who knows stuff... =D
Dude.. The Black Keys following a National opener..
That's starting to read like a list of my favourite acts.
I was afraid I'd eat your brains. Cuz I'm evil.
See all songs
