From the Hole to the Pumpkins March 20, 2009

Posted by Domenico in Music.

Finally this week is going to end. Yesterday I was incredibly impressed by the weather… we really had kind of four seasons rotating in a day (snowing in the morning and the afternoon, a little bit of sun, temperature btwn 0 and 8 degrees…) well, I’d say 4 Viennese seasons (because the summer in Vienna could be with 8 degrees too). That’s quite scary, if you think about the absolute and unpredictable entropic behavior.

While hoping the weekend will be better, here we come with another artist, the last for this week, Melissa Auf Der Mar.

MAdM is a Canadian rock musician who currently resides in Montreal, Quebec, Canada (so many good things come from Canada… especially from Montreal).

First time I saw her was in the video of “Hollywood” a song from the band “Hole”, lead by Courtney Love, where she was a bass guitar player. Then I saw her in another video, this time with the Smashing Pumpkins (not the new ones but one of the versions around 2000). Now I discover that she has an own project called simply Auf Der Mar.
It was funny to learn that Melissa became friend with Billy Corgan (Mr. Smashing Pumpkins) after apologizing for a friend who threw a beer bottle at him during one of The Smashing Pumpkins’ Canadian concert dates.

Today we will watch the video for the song “Real A Lie”:

Enjoy and have a good weekend.

I like the contrast between the guitars and the voice. I find the lyrics rather pretentious …

Send “Real A Lie” Ringtone to Cell

So free and so far, so aroused
So alone I try to find the lie,
That lies beneath you, I try
Like a wave, I’m self-acclaimed

Real a lie, you’re truly mine
I am that kind, living blind
Real a lie, I am that kind
Living blind, for a lie

Behind closed doors your folded blind,
You’re truly mine, from behind
Closed doors you meet me,
Like a wave, I’m self-acclaimed

Real a lie, you’re truly mine
I am that kind, living blind
Real a lie, I am that kind
Living blind, for a lie

Deep and so far, low down
Growing green, far above the waves
Got a lie, you and I
Wave, wave, wave

Doo doo doo doo

I actually don’t understand the lyrics…
Ok otherwise I guess…!
