I have wanted to do a post about Dead Flowers‘ songs FOREVER. As I sat to do it tonight, it became so boring. I’ve thought about this topic and these songs for over a year and here I am, bored.

That’s the killer. The no voice. It’s the killer of Improv and it’s the killer of poetry. Hell, let’s call it the Killer of Love while we’re at it. No. No. No. Don’t do it. Don’t write the line. Don’t wake in the middle of the night with that image, that fish that eats your side, that river that is dammed up with golden leaves, ice forming at the edges.

But I think I’m going with it anyway, because, let’s face it, this is not a poem. This is not Improv. This is not lovemaking and in those cases, I’d find the yes, I would do it. I would grab my pen by the throat and stab the paper. Only this blog is my paper right now.

If you must know, The Rolling Stones used to be my favorite band of all time. While I’m not actually ashamed of this, I would say my love for them hit the skids for over a decade.

The other day, in my car, this is the song that brought me back after my long departure from listening to the Stones.

I’m basically gonna keep my mouth shut about everything I could say except that in this recording, Mick’s still pretty (really pretty) and has a voice with which to sing.

If you want to go a bit further, look up “Loving Cup” or “Dead Flowers,” live, from the same era. Sweet indeed!
