Dick and Jane Song of the Week: Kidnapped Soul

Sep 22, 2015

Life was a warm sunny day 
Til' you left and it turned to gray 

You said I could stay 
But it was not OK 
Kidnapped soul and I'm losing control 
I can't stop running 
'Cause you’re eating me whole 

When I first heard your voice 
I was sold you pure solid gold 

It feels so low but this time it won't be so!creditsreleased 29 June 2015 
Lyrics by Malcom K, David B, Tyler S, and Keenan B 
Featuring Mary Lynn Gloeckle 
Produced, recorded, and mixed by Joe Camerlengo

Shaun Fleming is perhaps best known as Foxygen’s drummer, but he also fronts a side project under the name of Diane Coffee and he'll play a few songs during the Global Village!

A three time Kerrville New Folk finalist, Angela has a new release, "Common Law Wife".

She gets help on this cd from Fats Kaplin and Will Kimbrough.

Bob Edwards has interviewed her, and she has also appeared on Michael Feldman's Whad'ya Know.

Byrds cofounder Roger McGuinn once described her as "a bright shining star on the horizon".

Joining her will be guitarist Brandon Turner, who plays in her band.

Kevin Sylvester says that when most people see a 6-foot-2-inch, 260-pound black man, they don't expect him to also be a classically trained violinist. A recent exchange with a woman in an elevator, when he happened to have his instrument with him in its case, drove that point home.


Jeff German and The Blankety Blanks return to Central Ohio for a show Friday night at King Avenue 5, 945 King Avenue in Columbus.

Mollie and Rich last performed in Studio A back on Feb 6, 2014, and now they're back, but this time with Todd Burge.

The Mollie O'Brien/Rich Moore Collaboration, "Love Runner" came out last year.

Todd Burge's "Imitation LIfe" release, produced by Mollie's brother Tim O'Brien, came out earlier this year


Sometimes I feel like my life’s moving faster than I can 
Sometimes I feel like my feet just move faster than I ran

Yesterday’s a blur cause my minds stuck in tomorrow today

There’s nothing I can do I’m lost without a clue
But sometimes I try to take a moment
But life will always move too fast

We never stop to take a breath it never feels like we can
Life just keeps on moving on repeating the same plan

My life will never change it will always stay the same

It’s hard to remember those days 

Looking back now is a blur 
Those faces all blend together 

And I know my thoughts have changed 
I started looking at the sky 
Those stars that shine so brightly have opened up my eyes 

Even if my old ghosts start to haunt 
I can become anyone I want 
This merry-go-round routine just isn’t me
