Song of the moment: “The Look of Love” by Isaac Hayes

Posted in Music with tags , , on December 9, 2009 by The Quintessential Geek

I am cleaning house, listening to one of the best (no, correction, THE best) funk / soul singer of his generation.  R.I.P.

The look of love is in your eyes
The look your heart can’t disguise
The look of love is saying so much more
Than words could ever say, yeah

A look my heart has heard
My, my takes my breath away
I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I’ve waited
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you

The look of love
Oh, it’s on your face
Oh, mama that look time can’t erase
Be mine tonight

And let this be
The start of so many
Groovy nights like this, yeah
Let’s take a lover’s vow
And seal this thing with a kiss

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you

Now that I have found you
Don’t ever go
Oh no

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you

Now that I have found you
Don’t go
Don’t go
Don’t go
The look of love
Don’t go
I love you
Oh, baby
The look of love
Don’t go
Don’t go
Don’t go
Don’t go
Aaah

Song of the day: “Reuben James” by Kenny Rogers

Posted in Music with tags , on December 9, 2009 by The Quintessential Geek

Reuben James
In my song you live again
And the phrases that I rhyme
Are just the footsteps out of time
From the time when I knew you, Reuben James

Reuben James
All the folks around Madison County cussed your name
You’re just a no-account, sharecropping colored man
Who’d steal anything he can
And everybody laid the blame on Reuben James

CHORUS:
Reuben James,
You still walk the fertile fields of my mind
The faded shirt, the weathered brow
The calloused hands upon the plow
I loved you then and I love you now, Reuben James

Flora Grey,
The gossiper of Madison County died with child
And although your skin was black
You were the one that didn’t turn your back
On the hungry white child with no name, Reuben James

Reuben James,
With your mind on my soul and a Bible in your right hand
You said turn the other cheek
For there’s a better world awaiting for the meek
In my mind these words remain from Reuben James

[CHORUS]

[Music goes up a half step in the upcoming last verse]
Reuben James
One dark cloudy day they brought you from the field
And to your lonely pinebox came
Just a preacher and me in the rain
Just to sing one last refrain for Reuben James

[CHORUS]

Never Tear You Apart
To the tune of Never Tear Us Apart by INXS

“Don’t eat me”
What I heard from you
Don’t want to kill you
Or chew your body parts

I
I was shambling
You were scared
Hunger subsided
And I will never tear you apart

Never Tear You Apart

To the tune of Never Tear Us Apart by INXS

“Don’t eat me”
What I heard from you
Don’t want to kill you
Or chew your body parts

I
I was shambling
You were scared
Hunger subsided
And I will never tear you apart

6 Tools for Editing and Recording Audio

Posted in Music with tags , , , on August 16, 2009 by The Quintessential Geek

[via TechJaws]

“If you have a large collection of music, you might have thought of editing the sound track for yourself by adding or removing part of it. There are many audio editing tools available that allow you to do the same – edit audio files, like you edit text files by cut, copy and paste. Many of these tools also support audio recording, if you are planning to create your own album then you can edit your tracks by yourself.”
