"Better Than I Know Myself" lyrics

Better Than I Know Myself

Written by: Claude Kelly
Produced by: Dr Luke & Cirkut
Performed by: Adam Lambert

Cold as ice,
And more bitter than a December
Winter night:
That’s how I treated you.

And I know that I –
I sometimes tend to lose my temper,
And I cross the line.
Yeah, that’s the truth.

I know it gets hard sometimes,
But I could never
Leave your side
No matter what I say.

A Change Is Gonna Come, glitter style

Oh my, I’m at risk of turning this blog into an Adam Lambert fan site aren’t I?

But but… this is too awesome not to blog about…!!!!

Compare it with the American Idol version. How different does this get? (I prefer the singing in AI though, cos it’s just so much more emotional; it really shows how much he’s grown as a singer (I believe he was about 22 or 23 when he did the version above).

Image Gallery: Adam Lambert rocks it out with Queen

I thought this was the most awesome part of the American Idol 8 finale, Adam singing with rock royalty and killing “We are the Champions” with full vibrato even on the high ranges! Brian Harold May and Roger Taylor are da bombs. The competition should have ended at this point because what came after was so unfortunately anticlimatic and disappointing.

Rockin' good 60s music that make me feel good

Felt in the music mood today so am re-living some of my favourite live 60s songs (not that I was born in the 60s though).

Woodstock (Live version) by Joni Mitchell
One of my all time favourite songs.

Mp3tag Export script for organising music in UMS/MSC players

After I bought my new Samsung Yp-U3 (MSC mode) player, I discovered that the latest firmware (1.12WA) has limitations with regards to reading files from file directory folders: it is able to play files in folders in repeat mode or in shuffle mode, but it is unable to play only files within the folder sequentially once. For example, if I have two folders each containing ten mp3s. If I were to select the fifth mp3 of the first folder in the default play mode, the mp3 player will play all the remaining mp3s from both folders sequentially until there are no more files left and the player then automatically shuts down. There is no way that the player will only play songs from one folder, unless it is the last folder in the list. This is a big problem for me because I often listen to music when I’m about to sleep and it’s obviously not a good thing if the music player keeps playing nonstop.

Awesome Zep news

Possible future release of Led Zeppelin Fillmore West video? And inclusive of one of the most superb versions of Killing Floor? I have the audio bootlegs for these concerts but video would be heaven’s send. Hopefully the stash also includes As Long as I Have You. That would make me one very contented person. ^_^

Legendary promoter’s stash to be released and it ain’t only rock’n’roll

Good intentions

I had meant to sleep early: my eyes are almost hurting because they are so tired and dry. Looking at the time now however — I guess not.

I wanted to mention something about this last year (actually, to be less vague, over a week ago) in my blog, but because was down, I put off the update until I forgot all about it. Anyways, just wanted to say that I watched Miyazaki Hayao’s Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi last week in the best cinema in Singapore and totally loved it. I can’t wait for it to be released on DVD. I already have the Mononoke Hime DVD at home, so it’ll be the second Miyazaki film that I’ll purchase.

While we’re on the topic of Miyazaki films, My Neighbour Totoro was showed on TV on New Year’s Day morning. I only managed to catch the last half-an-hour of it. However, the version that was being shown was the Chinese-dubbed version of it, which as usual sounded awful. To make it worse, the broadcasters must have used an old copy of the film or something because the picture quality wasn’t too fantastic. The colours looked murky and the lines of the drawings were blurred.

"Good Times Bad Times", Classic Rock, May 2000

Transcribed from Classic Rock May 2000 Good Times Bad Times, pg 42-49.

Part two of Classic Rock’s exclusive interview with Jimmy finds him back home in England, where he speaks for the first time about the end of Led Zeppelin and of what the future now has in store for the legendary guitarist.
Untitled: Mick Wall

Frankly, I have never known him more excited. “Michael Wallus Maximus!” he bellows down the phone at me. “It’s me — James Patrick Page! How the devil are ya?!”

Good, I tell him. But I wouldn’t mind a bit of whatever you’re on. You sound on fire.

I tell you what,” he says excitedly, “I am!”

It is just after noon on an exceptionally sunny Friday in March. Having spent the previous week in New York talking to the world’s press about his new live album with The Black Crowes — “It was unbelievable! Totally electric!” — Jimmy Page is now back home at his not inconsiderable pile buried deep in the English countryside. Back to normal, you might say — or might if this time he didn’t sound so completely abnormal…

Jimmy Page and The Black Crowes Chat on AOL, Feb 29, 2000

AOL LIVE: Welcome Jimmy Page & Chris Robinson.

Chris: Rich is here as well!

Question: Chris and Jimmy, are you planning on making a tour of the Southern USA? (praying and pleading….PLEASE!!!) -Ariel

Jimmy: We are discussing, it would be nice if it happens.

Question: Good Evening to you both…Mr. Page, Mr. Robinson. I just want to know what the basis for this collaboration was. Whose idea initially was it, and do you foresee any other tour dates…because Oklahoma loves you… both!! God Bless! Thanks…….vonda

Jimmy: The culprit is me! It was me who called! I asked The Crowes if they would like to do a charity event with me and it spiraled from there. That was how it came to be. The catalyst was a charity event in London.

Question: Your recent projects in the Internet has surprised some of your fans. It seems that you are devoting a lot of energy exploring this potential market. What future cyberprojects do you anticipate?

Jimmy Page profile, Guitar Player, June 1969

Transcribed from Guitar Player June ‘69 [Transcription by Richard Maenpaa]

By Bob Kennedy

From the time Jimmy Page launched Led Zeppelin, it did what most groups dream of doing: it floated right to the top, first in England and now in the U.S. We caught Jimmy Page at the high temple of rock, the Fillmore in San Francisco, where he was making one of his first U.S. appearances. Although the Led Zeppelin had only been together two months, they were jamming as if they had been doing it for years.

Jimmy, who plays lead guitar for Led Zeppelin, worked two years with the much-lauded Yardbirds. At that time he became good friends with another Yardbirds veteran, Eric Clapton. “Eric and I did a lot of stuff at my house,” he recalls. “We used to just get the tape recorder working and start playing. A lot of the tapes we did together came out in the media. However, at the time I was recording with Eric, he was under contract and so his company took possession of the recordings. It’s interesting to see the progress Eric has made since then.”
