Music history – Zombie by The Cranberries

Music is therapy

After our selection I need some therapy with music. At least I found `The Cranberries´ and listened to some versions of their song ZOMBIE and translated the text into German.

Btw (by the way):

We have Zombies in the politcal area worldwide. And actually there are some new in Germany who are in political responsibility for our country.

The Cranberries

`The Cranberries are an Irish rock band who formed in Limerick in 1989. The band consists of lead singer Dolores O’Riordan, guitarist Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan, and drummer Fergal Lawler. Although widely associated with alternative rock, the band’s sound also incorporates indie poppost-punkIrish folk, and pop rock elements (Wikipedia).

The Lyrics

Another head hangs lowly – Child is slowly taken – And the violence, caused such silence – Who are we mistaken? – But you see, it’s not me – It’s not my family
In your head, in your head, they are fighting – With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns – In your head, in your head they are crying

In your head, in your head – Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie
What’s in your head, in your head – Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie, oh

Du, du, du, du – Du, du, du, du – Du, du, du, du – Du, du, du, du

Another mother’s breaking – Heart is taking over – When the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken – It’s the same old theme – Since nineteen-sixteen

In your head, in your head, they’re still fighting – With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns – In your head, in your head, they are dying

In your head, in your head – Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie
What’s in your head, in your head – Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie

Text in German

Ein anderer Kopf hängt tief – Kind wird langsam eingenommen – Und die Gewalt, verursachte solch Stille – Wem machen wir etwas falsch? – Aber du siehst, ich bin es nicht – Es ist nicht meine Familie – In deinem Kopf, in deinem Kopf, kämpfen Sie

Mit ihren Panzern und ihren Bomben – Und ihre Bomben und ihre Waffen

In deinem Kopf, in deinem Kopf weinen Sie – In deinem Kopf, in deinem Kopf

Zombie, Zombie, Zombie-IE-IE – Was ist in deinem Kopf, in deinem Kopf

Zombie, Zombie, Zombie-IE-IE, Oh

Du, du, du, du – Du, du, du, du – Du, du, du, du – Du, du, du, du

Eine andere Mutter bricht – Das Herz übernimmt – Wenn die Gewalt zum Schweigen führt

Wir müssen uns irren – Es ist dasselbe alte Thema – Seit neunzehn-sechzehn

In deinem Kopf, in deinem Kopf, kämpfen Sie immer noch

Mit ihren Panzern und ihren Bomben – Und ihre Bomben und ihre Waffen

In deinem Kopf, in deinem Kopf, sterben Sie – In deinem Kopf, in deinem Kopf

Zombie, Zombie, Zombie-IE-IE – Was ist in deinem Kopf, in deinem Kopf

Zombie, Zombie, Zombie-IE-IE

Jon Hiseman – Drum Art with tea

Jimi Hendrix is nearly eating his guitar with the early live gig of `Hey Joe´.

Jon Hiseman is nearly eating his drumsticks in Oldenburg.

I´ve never seen a drum solo like that

There are so many phantastic drummers, esp. in the Jazz scene. But Jon Hiseman, drummer of Colosseum (Jazzrock&Blues) with the great Blues singer Chris Farlow is my favorite. I met the band Colosseum in Oldenburg (Germany) after their concert taking authograms from the whole band. But where was Jon Hiseman..? After a short moment he appeared with some CD`s and a pot in his hands. „Hello Mr. Hiseman, can you give me an authogram?“, I shouted at him. „Yes, wait a moment I `must´ have my tea first“, was the answer. I was waiting for about 5 minutes. Jon Hiseman was drinking his tea, and the rest oft he band were talking to the rest of fans. At least I had all my authograms completed. From John Hiseman, Chris Farlow,  Barbara Thomson, Dave Greenslade and Mark Clarke.

Kurt Cobain with Nirvana – Unplugged

For all music lovers I have created a new category on my Blog called `Unplugged´.

It is (so to say) a reminder of all great musicians who have gave concerts unplugged. As you know unplugged is without big amplifiers on stage, just presented in the natural sound of instruments, only powered by microphones.

Where did you sleep last night

The Classic live unplugged concert ist that by Kurt Cobain with Nirvana and his song `Where did you sleep last night´. So, let`s watch the following video of this concert. Kurt seems to be quite nervous, before he starts, first must have another cigarette. The audience put him under pressure. Al least Kurt decided:  I do it. I intentionally don`t mention, that Kurt has died long time ago. Because with this song he is still alive and will never die. And we are with him.
