Dick and Jane Song of the Week: "Invisible"

Nov 30, 2012

LYRICS

Look over here. Look over there. Look everywhere. Do you see me sittin’ there? Do I have to stare? Let me close the door of opportunity. Do I have to be noticed in a picture? ‘Cause you don’t see me.

Am I invisible? Am I invisible? Am I invisible? Oh. Oh. Oh. Oh. Oh. Am I invisible?

Am I like a blinding wall? Just supposed to stand tall? Waiting for your response? Waiting for you to see me? Am I supposed to be that way? Sitting, waiting all day? Sitting, smiling at you?

Blues is so much a part of the fabric of American music and American culture — not only as a defined musical form, but also as a springboard for all kinds of creativity — that it seems crazy to try to encapsulate it in any way. Bear Family Records, though, has just released a 12-disc survey of electric blues called Plug It In! Turn It Up! that does a great job of illuminating one particular aspect of the blues.

Bands That Should Be Bigger

Nov 21, 2012

The halls of music history are littered with bands that should have made it big, but never did. Maybe they put out a couple of amazing records and you feel like you're the only person on the planet who appreciated them. Or maybe they're still trying, and you're holding out hope, along with the band, that that big break will finally come.

Bill Withers' very first single became a breakout hit in 1971. He would go on to record nine albums over the next 14 years, and all of them are now available on a new box set, The Complete Sussex and Columbia Masters.

Coming to WCBE Monday November 19th, during the 11am hour, their latest full length release is Funhouse.

They've also got some holiday music available for download on their website, http://caravanofthieves.com.

Half the proceeds from those holiday songs benefit the National Alliance to End Homelessness.

Tune in Monday morning to find out more, on 90.5FM and HD Columbus.

Montreal based Patrick Watson will join us live during the Global Village!

Father John Misty On World Cafe

Nov 16, 2012

Father John Misty is a character — literally. A persona invented by singer-songwriter Josh Tillman, Father John Misty is there to showcase Tillman's rock-friendly side. In 2008, Tillman joined the Seattle folk-rock band Fleet Foxes as its drummer. After leaving the band at the beginning of the year, he loaded his van and hit the road.

LYRICS

The leaves change, melted to the ground as diamonds fall from the sky. The leaves change, melted to the ground as diamonds fall from the sky.

We all live. We all die. It’s a part of the cycle we call life.

Flowers grow and fall from the trees and passes on to another leaf. And when one dies, another grows in its place. Flowers grow and fall from the trees and passes on to another leaf. And when one dies, another grows in its place.

We all live. We all die. It’s a part of the cycle we call life.

One of the most gifted rock guitarists of the last 50 years — and the main songwriter and creative force behind The Who — Pete Townshend spent decades touring the globe and writing rock operas like Tommy and Quadrophenia. He helped define rock 'n' roll for his generation and many to follow.

Brooklyn's Jukebox The Ghost will play a few songs live during the Global Village ahead of their show at The Newport with Motion City Soundtrack!  They're touring in support of their third CD Safe Travels on Yep Roc Records! 

  

The Infamous Stringdusters, the bluegrass band out of Charlottesville, VA., will perform live during the Global Village! 

Temperatures are dropping, and WCBE reminds you that hundreds of homeless men, women and children are without shelter.  

LYRICS

Just so you know, I cry myself to sleep from night to night. I fear the sunrise because I don’t want to face the world. I’m not what you think I am. I’m about to break. Now I let the night take me away.

No, don’t tell me that you just don’t care because you know that it will break me. Don’t tell me that you feel my pain when you never shed a tear. No, you don’t know what’s good for me. You’re not the thing I need. You’re never there for me.

Take me away. Now I’ll let the night take me away.

Film director and screenwriter Jim Jarmusch makes music an integral part of his films: He often casts musicians in key roles and frequently incorporates music into his plots. Think about his film Down by Law, with saxophonist John Lurie and singer Tom Waits, or Stranger Than Paradise, in which "I Put a Spell on You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins is a key character.

Crooked Fingers will perform a live acoustic set ahead of the show at The Tree Bar that night with John Vanderslice

LYRICS

I was sitting in the window, trying to find the me lost inside, so sad I wanted to cry, felt a drop on the side of my cheek, wiped it away, came running down faster than rain. I didn’t know what to say, so I hid in my room for the rest of the day, and I cried in my pillow.

Sat on my bed, trying to forget all the things that you said. They came back every time that I shut my eyes. I couldn’t fall asleep because my dreams took over the world.

Top 10 Halloween Songs

Oct 31, 2012
Ciara Kinzig

I was given the daunting task to come up with a festive Halloween playlist. What to choose, what to choose!?

When I think festive, I think of songs that either epitomize the night of Halloween or go over board to completely do their own thing. It's Halloween, and some songs should a little weird and creative.

This audio is no longer available.

Folk Alley celebrates Halloween with a special stream of spooky folk music — including ghost stories, murder ballads, gory tales, supernatural songs and myths of witches, goblins and vampires. Squeamish? Afraid of the dark? Beware. Keep your night light nearby, and prepare to be petrified.


Artists In This Mix

It's 4:30 in the morning in Washington, D.C., and dank pools of sweat are collecting on the dance floor beneath a dripping basement ceiling. I can see Sonny Moore's heart beating through his shirt. The 24-year-old DJ, whose producing alias, Skrillex, is a major keyword for the new wave of American dance music, just wrapped up an intimate surprise show at U Street Music Hall (my local gateway to electronic music and a place where I also DJ from time to time).

Warren Haynes of Gov't Mule will be backed up by The Lee Boys live during the Global Village!
