    Now that would explain quite a lot on account of what's wrong with this world!

    Or maybe even a lot of what's right with it.

    I love bacon myself but if I ate a whole lot it probably wouldn't be too good for me. I've had it in chocolate bars but not yet in ice cream...

    Yep, this one:



    Ironically the only place I can find them is at an international food market. And they're $5 each.

    At the Renaissance festival a few years ago they were selling bacon covered in dark chocolate. My husband and I shared a piece. It was so good!

    Another great oldie, this time from sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, also known as Heart. It's the only one of their hits where Nancy did the lead vocals, although the video suggests that Ann also sang part of the lead.

    Spare a little candle
    Save some light for me
    Figures up ahead
    Moving in the trees
    White skin in linen
    Perfume on my wrist
    And the full moon that hangs over
    These dreams in the mist

    Darkness on the edge
    Shadows where I stand
    I search for the time
    On a watch with no hands
    I want to see you clearly
    Come closer than this
    But all I remember
    Are the dreams in the mist

    These dreams go on when I close my eyes
    Every second of the night I live another life
    These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
    Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away

    Is it cloak 'n dagger
    Could it be spring or fall
    I walk without a cut
    Through a stained glass wall
    Weaker in my eyesight
    The candle in my grip
    And words that have no form
    Are falling from my lips

    These dreams go on when I close my eyes
    Every second of the night I live another life
    These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
    Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away

    There's something out there
    I can't resist
    I need to hide away from the pain
    There's something out there
    I can't resist

    The sweetest song is silence
    That I've ever heard
    Funny how your feet
    In dreams never touch the earth
    In a wood full of princes
    Freedom is a kiss
    But the prince hides his face
    From dreams in the mist

    These dreams go on when I close my eyes
    Every second of the night I live another life
    These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
    Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away

    These dreams go on when I close my eyes
    Every second of the night I live another life
    These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
    Every moment I'm awake the further I'm away

    I don't think I realized that fact about this song. It's a beauty. Thanks, Aragorn.

    I was looking over the bacon posts. I got my brother a bacon puzzle for Xmas. (Regular puzzle, lots of pieces pictured).

    Dmitri Shostakovich - Waltz No. 2

    This great piece of music has been used in the movie "Eyes wide shut", but nontheless has survived the "abuse".

    Anyway, I think I'll start introducing something Classical.

    Another favorite oldie of mine, dating back to my days in college...



    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R71bWoZ__e0



    I just can't pretend no more
    I keep runnin' out of lies
    Lovin' you is killin' me inside
    Every time I find the words to end it
    Something in your eyes won't let it

    Shandi, tonight must last us forever
    Forever we say goodnight and go home
    But you know me very well
    And I know you
    You can't tell me goodnight
    (Say goodnight)

    We been holding on so tight
    We're afraid to let it go
    Shake it loose, we both could use the ride
    Here's another mess I got myself in
    And when you touch me you ain't helpin'

    Shandi, tonight must last us forever
    Forever we say goodnight and go home
    But you know me very well
    And I know you
    You can't tell me goodnight
    (Say goodnight)
    Say goodnight
    When we should say goodbye
    (Say goodbye)

    (Shandi, Shandi) Tonight must last us forever and ever
    Forever we say goodnight and go home
    Shandi, Shandi, tonight must last us forever

    Lisa Gerrard - Man On Fire

    Lisa Gerrard an Australian genius. I love her music ever since the Gladiator movie. She is using words that are not of this world.

    This guy has been a significant influence on me as a guitarist, and as I've only recently still discovered, he shared his birthday with me. This song here is from what I personally consider his best musical period.

    Rest in peace, Gary Moore.

    They came for him one winter's night
    Arrested, he was bound
    They said there'd been a robbery
    His pistol had been found

    They marched him to the station house
    He waited till the dawn
    And as they led him to the dock
    He knew that he'd been wronged

    You stand accused of robbery
    He heard the bailiff say
    He knew without an alibi
    Tomorrow's light would mourn his freedom

    Over the hills and far away
    For ten long years he'll count the days
    Over the mountains and the seas
    A prisoner's life for him there'll be

    He knew that it would cost him dear
    But yet he dare not say
    Just where he had been that fateful night
    A secret it must stay

    He had to fight back tears of rage
    His heart beat like a drum
    For with the wife of his best friend
    He'd spent his final night of freedom

    Over the hills and far away
    He swears he will return one day
    Far from the mountains and the seas
    Back in her arms again he'll be

    Over the hills and far away

    Each night within his prison cell
    He looks out through the bars
    He reads the letters that she wrote
    One day he'll know the taste of freedom

    Over the hills and far away
    She prays he will return one day
    As sure as the rivers reach the seas
    Back in his arms again she'll be

    Over the hills and far away
    He swears he will return one day
    As sure as the rivers reach the seas
    Back in his arms is where she'll be

    Over the hills and far away
    She prays he will return one day
    As sure as the rivers reach the seas
    Back in her arms is where he'll be

    Over the hills
    Over the hills and far away

    Over the hills
    Over the hills and far away

    Love Gary Moore, Aragorn. He had an all time classic here. The best guitar solo ever!

    Yes Dreamtimer, there are some artists that cannot be copied by anyone, soooo unique. Love that!

    That particular guitar solo is indeed a memorable and iconic one, but it roughly centers around the same chord progression as he had already used on a similarly iconic song, with an equally memorable solo. The version here-below is from a live performance with his former Thin Lizzy buddy, Phil Lynott. The studio version of the song has vocals by Gary Moore only, though.




    Gary and Phil used to work together quite a lot, which also yielded this little anthem here...
