note: This is a follow up for ‘The Future Shine‘ list. That music influence, albeit has origin, is not as easy to track. The late 60′s was the time when British folks influence entered rock and altered the shape of basic rockabilly [1]. Lyrics form and subject broadened and the use of acoustic was not just for simple solo sound. Chuck Berry even tries some latin form. And then there is Bo Diddley with his unconventional rock rhythm for his time, which makes his work timeless. And of course everybody was doing blues black or white, folks or rocker. It was part of menu that everybody had to do. Rock suddenly was more than Elvis. That was the blend that enters psychedelia [2]. I am fro the school of mix and match. If it hasn’t been tried before, time to blend and stretch it. Make it rock.

    Oh all of these are very nice indeed. I love it when you do 60′s rock playlists, im gonna use several of these ones now that my infernal semester is finally over in two weeks and I can get to my old winter vacation habits of waking up at noon, eating grass and sex outdoors. yeahy.

The song makes its imprint
in the air, making itself felt,
a felt world. Here, there,
the stunned silence

of knowing I will not remember
what I heard;

futures that will never happen,
a fluidity we cannot achieve
except as a child
creating possibility.

This is the untranslatable song
hidden in the earth.
