music monday – Time Space COntinuum and OUr Tiny Selves

I am addicted to Umbrella Academy (Netflix). I tend to stay away from TV, but lately it’s been nice to sit back and be entertained – and damn – Umbrella Academy is good. And the soundtrack – outstanding. Among the many great songs – Golden Brown – which led me on a trip to visiting The Stranglers.

Time is slippery on memory lane

Golden brown texture like sun
Lays me down with my mind she runs
Throughout the night
No need to fight
Never a frown with golden brown

Every time just like the last
On her ship tied to the mast
To distant lands
Takes both my hands
Never a frown with golden brown

Golden brown finer temptress
Through the ages she’s heading west
From far away
Stays for a day
Never a frown with golden brown

Never a frown with golden brown
Never a frown with golden brown
Never a frown with golden brown
Never a frown with golden brown

Songwriters: Jean Jacques Burnel / Brian John Duffy / Hugh Alan Cornwell / David Paul Greenfield

R.I.P Dave Greenfield.

I'm a rock-n-roller poet who left the Big Apple for the Big Sky Desert where I've been letting it be and grooving with universal love, singing to the gods, dancing with the muses and bicycling with dreamtime messengers. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, breath, and makin' stuff.

  1. the classic stranglers line-up.
    there is a ticket on the fridge door bought back in march last year for the stranglers in newcastle 2020…of course, it came and went; never happened (and d. greenfield died, too in the interim). i purchased the ticket because an acquaintance of mine is obsessed w/ the band – it is literally all he talks about! i’ve caught the band several times over the decades but tbh i didn’t hold out too much hope for the gig anyway… not because of the plague, but because in my heart my love of the stranglers is based in the long ago and i didn’t want to taint the present or the future. or whatever.
    get a grip on yourself. xo

    1. thought you might have some Stranglers history! So sad the plague got Dave Greenfield.

      I get not wanting to taint your love of the Stranglers. I have the same feeling about NYC – I love the place from long ago, not from the giant Disney shopping mall it has become.

      I’ve finished my Umbrella Academy binge and have an ambitious project I need to get out of my system now. No TV for a while. It was a nice break, now back to the real fantasy world.
