Ain’t got me a John Frusciante

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Dearest Nibblers,
Sad news….
Wednesday, December 16,2009 marked a sad day for The Red Hot Chili Peppers and their fans. After a year the band has been on hiatus John announced that he quit the band for the second time over a year ago.

Makes you wonder what else the RHCP has kept from us since stadium arcadium broke out.
This news also makes us wonder if the band can ever really keep it together. The guitarist slot has forever been a revolving door and John has forever been a person you couldn’t depend on. Ever since he joined RHCP when he was just 18 he has had ideas of his own and a free will no one could tame.

With the band going into the studio to cut a new record this year what can we expect? Will we get a one hot minute rerun? Should they even go on without John?

The year RHCP was recording stadium arcadium Flea reported that he had considered quitting the band because of John. Do you think things will get better? I think I will always remember them for their earlier days as a band and whatever comes will come. At this point I think they have been through so many ups and downs that it’s a free for all and I really don’t care anymore. If they come out with a stellar album I will be happy and if it’s mediocre like it has been for a while now it really won’t make a difference.

 Harsh words coming from a devoted fan (me).

PS. Chad the dummer is also going solo. But will he stay with the band?? I guess we’ll have to wait and see

Listen to classic RHCP

Songs of the day

November 16, 2009 1 comment

Howdy!
I was planning on doing a song of the day on Friday but never got around to it. However I still want to tell you what it was. For me it was “Lovefool” by the Cardigans.

THE CARDIGANS

Here are the lyrics to “Lovefool”
“Dear, I fear we’re facing a problem
You love me no longer, I know
And maybe there is nothing
That I can do to make you do
Mama tells me I shouldn’t bother
That I ought to stick to another man
A man that surely deserves me
But I think you do!

So I cry, I pray and I beg

Love me love me
Say that you love me
Fool me fool me
Go on and fool me
Love me love me
Pretend that you love me
Leave me leave me
Just say that you need me
Love me love me
Say that you love me
Leave me leave me
Just say that you need me
I can’t care ’bout anything but you…

Lately I have desperately pondered,
Spent my nights awake and I wonder
What I could have done in another way
To make you stay
Reason will not lead to solution
I will end up lost in confusion
I don’t care if you really care
As long as you don’t go

So I cry, I pray, and I beg

Love me, love me
Say that you love me
Fool me, fool me
Go on and fool me
Love me, love me
Pretend that you love me
Leave me, leave me
Just say that you need me
So I cry, and I pray for you to
Love me, love me
Say that you love me
Leave me, leave me
Just say that you need me
I can’t care ’bout anything but you…

Anything but you…

Love me, love me (Say that you love me)
Fool me, fool me (Go on and fool me)
Love me, love me (I know that you need me)
I can’t care ’bout anything but you..”

Today I’ve got “the sads” a-la-Lo (if you watch the Hills you’ll understand). The song of the day today is tied between “Milk” by Garbage and “F*** you like an Animal” by Nine Inch Nails.

GARBAGE

Here are the lyrics to Milk- maybe you’ll understand how I’m feeling today….
“I am milk
I am red hot kitchen
And I am cool
Cool as the deep blue ocean

I am lost
So I am cruel
But I’d be love and sweetness
If I had you

I’m waiting
I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting
I’m waiting for you

I am weak
But I am strong
I can use my tears to
Bring you home

I’m waiting
I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting
I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting
I’m waiting for you

I am milk
I am red hot kitchen
And I am cool
Cool as the deep blue ocean

I’m waiting
I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting
I’m waiting for you

I’m waiting
I’m waiting for you
I’m aching
I’m aching for you

I’m waiting
I’m waiting
I’m waiting for you”

If you’re willing “google” the lyrics to the NIN song. I just don’t want to post them because they are not all that appropriate. But today I can relate.

C’est ma vie, non?
What’s your song today?
Bite me.
