Lana Del Rey's Poetry
She's written some great songs, sure (including this one that references her love for Springsteen), but damn if this girl isn't a fantastic poet. In his "From My Home To Yours" gig on SiriusXM's E Street Radio station (where he's been playing records from his own collection and sharing his thoughts about the time we're living in), he played LDR's "Video Games" one night. Here's what we he said about it/her.
The great German singer/actress.
With summer coming to an end, I thought I'd spotlight a couple of recent verses from Bruce Springsteen as he was looking back at the summer of his youth. The video (and the quote, below) was taken from his SiriusXM show (where he's a DJ on his own channel; as he introduces songs, he spins a little poetry). Beautiful.
I'm reminded of a favorite quote...
"Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
I love concepts likes string theory... or this.
Sensual. Almost somewhat of a dance.
From the great Wim Wenders film.
Love Sonnet XI
One of my favorite Neruda poems. Here's another.
Just some musings from an old guy...
