Musicovery EDEN LYRICS - Sex And I said "What's up? What you been thinking? 'Cause you been staring at that roof So long, I swear its come alive" And she spoke nine words, And now were sinking, But I can't find it in myself to want to lie To keep this thing from going down 'Cause that girl took my heart And I ain't want it back No, I'm laying down my cards 'Cause you said it meant nothing And I should've kept my silence, But I guess I'm too attached, To my own pride, To let you know That all these words meant nothing And I've always been this heartless And we were just having sex No, I would never call it love But, love Oh no, I think I'm catching feelings and I Don't know, If this is empathy I feel just Hold on, Remember why you said this was the Last time Woah, hey, yeah yeah yeah, Woah, so I guess it's Woah, hey, yeah yeah yeah, Woah, let die to let live No, I don't know how to forget you No, I don't know how to forget you No, I don't know how to forget you No, I don't know how to forget you

The 50 Greatest Jazz Albums…Ever At the end of any year it’s a great time to look back and so we’ve decided to attempt to come up with a definitive list of the 50 Greatest Jazz Albums of all time. Impossible, you are probably thinking, and it probably is, but rather than just thinking of our favourites we decided to take a good look through the web to see what other lists there are and combine our findings. As usual we expect many of you to disagree, sometimes strongly, but as usual we will love hearing from you. It took us several days of searching but here it is, the 50 greatest… 50. This is What Michael Jackson Sounds Like in Quechua Even the youngs think Quechua is cool. After the language was translated for a book, a song, and given a shoutout by a fútbolero, we started thinking that Quechua was having a sort of moment. Perhaps the biggest sign of this is that a 14-year-old girl named Renata Flores sang a Quechua version of Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel.” The Ayacuchana sings the tune at the Vilcashuamán ruins, as guitars and a Peruvian cajón play. According to La Republica, the video is part of the Asociación Cultural SURCA, which works to get the youth to learn the importance of Quechua.

Android RoboSpice with GoogleHttpClient In this post we will examine an example app in which we make a RoboSpice request using GoogleHttpClient. The github repo is here. Dependencies First, we need to grab the RoboSpice dependency JARs from the repository repo. git clone Inside of 1.4.11/robospice-google-http-client are the JARs we need to include in the project. We will also need one JAR from the Google-Http-Lib source. Classes We are going to create a few files: BaseSpiceActivity import; import; public class BaseSpiceActivity extends Activity { private SpiceManager spiceManager = new SpiceManager(JacksonGoogleHttpClientSpiceService.class); @Override protected void onStart() { spiceManager.start(this); super.onStart(); } @Override protected void onStop() { spiceManager.shouldStop(); super.onStop(); } protected SpiceManager getSpiceManager() { return spiceManager; } } Fin

NPR Music's 50 Favorite Albums Of 2015 This is how we listen: Take 12 months, a few thousand albums and pan for gold. We sift for works that are definitive and for sounds or songs that cross boundaries, make connections, teach us something new. We allow ourselves to be swept away, to be seduced, to be fooled by a good new trick or an old one produced with grace and confidence. 2015 was a year in which the fractures in the music industry's bedrock became everyday geography — a no man's land of streaming, downloads, CDs and LPs, with plenty of skirmishes and territory disputes. Despite all that, it was still just as easy to find great albums and just as hard to narrow them down to 50. Advisory: Some of the songs on this page contain profanity. AFRICA EXPRESS PRESENTSTerry Riley's In C Mali Terry Riley's iconic In C, originally composed in 1964, is an infinitely malleable feast of sound: It's a piece playable by any group of musicians for whatever duration they desire.

Rhiannon Giddens Speaks For The Silenced "This instrument right here, born in Africa, but then made in America and then altered by white America — that's the story of so much of our music," Rhiannon Giddens says of the banjo. John Peets/Courtesy of the artist hide caption toggle caption John Peets/Courtesy of the artist "This instrument right here, born in Africa, but then made in America and then altered by white America — that's the story of so much of our music," Rhiannon Giddens says of the banjo. Rhiannon Giddens' new solo album, Freedom Highway, is an exploration of African-American experiences, accompanied by an instrument with its own uniquely African-American story: the banjo. Giddens notes that the modern banjo draws from the African instrument known as the akonting, which is made from a gourd. Giddens says the banjo seemed like the perfect fit for her album, which includes songs based on slave narratives, as well as a song she wrote in response to police shootings of young black men.

This list, of the greatest albums made by women between 1964 and the present, is an intervention, a remedy, a correction of the historical record and hopefully the start of a new conversation. 150.
