Xavier Rudd - Creating A Dream

From "The Good Lie" movie soundtrack.

"Imagine every where was free to roam
imagine if the trees could tell us where to go
imagine that the sun could fill each lonely heart
imagine confrontation never got a start

Imagine things will were always crystal clear
imagine if the mind never interfered
imagine we could fly with broken wings
imagine if the heart could shed its skin

Imagine sacred sites were left to be
imagine if true activists controlled tv
imagine captain watson had the final say
imagine if industry just had to obey

Please patience please
please patience please
I'm creating a dream"

The music is wonderful, the voice transcends.

Douba Diabira

No video for this set yet. Enjoy this power:

The Decemberists - Cavalry Captain b/w Philomena

A lost single from 1967 ;) Great horn charts on side one, and some flipped out Bacharach violin charts on side 2. Saw those wonderful back-up singers on American Bandstand just last week - always a joy.

Enjoy both sides - I know this eartaster loves to keep flipping this one - good finger excercise. And, for those still young enough - both sides are easy to dance to!

"I am the common collective"
Cavalry Captain

"I found I quickly bored - I wanted more! So I'll be your candle, and I'll be your statuette!"
