White Rabbit (1967)

Jefferson Airplane

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don’t do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she’s ten feet tall
And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you’re going to fall
Tell ‘em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call to
Call Alice
When she was just small

When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving 
low
Go ask Alice
I think she’ll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen’s “off with her head!”
Remember what the doormouse said;
"Feed YOUR HEAD…
Feed your head”

Derek and the Dominos - Layla
2,701 plays

We met secretly at a flat in South Kensington. Eric Clapton had asked me to come because he wanted me to listen to a new number he had written.

He switched on the tape machine, turned up the volume and played me the most powerful, moving song I had ever heard. It was Layla, about a man who falls hopelessly in love with a woman who loves him but is unavailable.

He played it to me two or three times, all the while watching my face intently for my reaction. My first thought was: ‘Oh God, everyone’s going to know this is about me.

Anna Calvi - Wolf Like Me (Live At Pukkelpop, August 16th 2014)

Pukkelpop was fucking amazing! I need to write more about everything when I’m back and have better wifi, but I recorded Wolf Like Me, because it was so awesome to see it back in the set. She played a completely rocked out version of her usual set… I really hope someone recorded the livestream, because Jezebel had an awesome new intro. Kassel was so awesome too, so I need to write about that as well.

I know I’m behind with posting some things, but I will catch up with everything when I’m back in 2 weeks.
