    I found the BBC up-loader is now limited to two tacks every 3 months, glad this space still exists.

    Have a great weekend everyone.

    PAUL LITTLEWOOD – Ghost In The Picture, Watch
    SI CONNELLY – Lion House

    Paul Littelwood’s “Ghost In The Picture, Watch” is to me the faved piece of art amongst this week’s tracks. I found a perfect match of vocals, instruments/sound/arrangement and lyrics that supported the message of the song. “Less is more” proves to be an essential truth on occasions like this one.

    The same to the lyrics of Si Connelly’s “Lion House” – poetry!

    Maybe the fact that only few artists present the lyrics in addition to the track itself is due to them not being aware of the sense of the instrument they used: wording as far as “Wortlaut” and “Wortwahl”, “phonetics and sense” are concerned. The need of tuning a guitar hasn’t to be discussed, the tuning of lyrics/wording shouldn’t be neglected.

    As via FOTN (and Soundcloud etc.) the music is spread/aired even to countrys far beyond anglophone range it is commendable to present the lyrics in addition.
    Do not hide your poetry if your lyrics are more than pigeon feed, spread.

    :)!
