New Video For “Young Girl Blues” From The Album, “One Man’s Opinion Of Moonlight.”

This wonderful song is from Donovan’s album, “Mellow Yellow,” 1967. Such a strange and moody and romantic piece. It blew my 16-yr. old mind like few other songs ever have. The title for my latest album, “One Man’s Opinion Of Moonlight,” is from a line in this song. You will note that I have two songs from “Mellow Yellow” on my album and I’m sure I’ll cover others in the future. Thank you, Mr. Donovan Leitch. Song licensed from Peer International Corp.

It’s Saturday night
It feels like a Sunday in some ways
If you had any sense
You’d maybe go ‘way for a few days
Be that as it may
You can only say you were lonely
You are but a young girl
Working your way through the phonies

Coffee on, milk gone
Such a sad light unfading
Yourself you touch
But not too much
You hear it’s degrading

The flowers on your stockings
Wilting away in the midnight
The book you are reading
Is one man’s opinion of moonlight
Your skin is so white
You’d like maybe to go to bed soon
Just closing your eyes
If you’re to rise up before noon

High heels, car wheels
All the losers are grooving
Your dream, strange scene
Images are moving

our friends they are making
A pop star or two every evening
You know that scene backwards
They can’t see the patterns they’re weaving
Your friends they’re all models
But you soon got over that one
You sit in your one room
A little brought down in London

Cafe on, milk gone
Such a sad light unfading
Yourself you touch
But not too much
You’ve heard it’s degrading

A Saturday night
It feels like a Sunday in some ways
If you had any sense
You’d maybe go away for a few days
Be that as it may
You can only say you were lonely
You are but a young girl
And you’re working your way through the phonies

New Release ~ I Want To Know (What You Told The Sun)

The song 
You are
The light
Your eyes
The wind 
Your hair
Your soft
White thighs

I want to know what you told the sun
Everyone knows except me

Enclose me now
Your dark perfume
Your lips
Your skin
Your silent rooms

I want to know what you told the sun
Everyone know except me

Mute before your radiance
The incandescent storm
I want so much to hold you
To take you in my arms
You know you drive me crazy
It comes as no surprise
Tell me that you love me
I see it in your eyes

The song
Your light
So soft
So cruel
The ocean laughs
At this old fool

I want to know what you told the sun
Everyone know except me

{video} Knox Bronson Performs Quicksand by David Bowie

This an acoustic version of David Bowie’s masterpiece, “Quicksand,” from his 1971 album, “Hunky Dory.” The inspiration for the video was Heinrich Boll’s 1963 novel, “The Clown.” The novel follows, in a series of flashbacks and ruminations, the downfall of the protagonist, Hans Schnier, once an A-list entertainer who toured Europe and performed at the finest concert hall and stayed in the best hotels. He has lost the only woman he ever loved to his stubborn refusal to sign an agreement to raise their future children in the Catholic faith. Additionally, his alcoholism has progressed to the realm of hopeless. The last scene shows him performing on the sidewalk outside a train station, his make-up smeared and cracked, with tears streaming down his face. Quite a book, beautifully written, and I highly recommend it.

The video was directed by Nero Nava, who took my rough concept, which came to me as I was falling asleep one night, and made it into something so much better. I also wish to thank Sonyia Jordan, Maia Panos, Gita, Will Hughs, and Atticus Wolf for being in the movie, and thank Gita, once again, for doing such great makeup on everybody.

[video] Winter Blue

Created from a seven-and-a-half hour hi-res video made available by Channel NRK2, on the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. I felt it would be perfect for “winter blue,” from the album “the seasons [remixed/remastered].” Finally got around to doing the edits. Yes, very happy with it!

Watch full-screen with a good sound system!

From the NRK2 website: Friday November 27th, over 1,2 million Norwegians watched parts of «Bergensbanen» on NRK2. The longest documentary ever? At least the longest we have made, almost 7 1/2 hours, showing every minute of the scenic train ride between Bergen on the Norwegian west coast, crossing the mountains to the capital of Oslo.
