...the same sermon all of the time from you people."
I figured open with a quote?
Short & sweet. I find his guitar work & harmonies to be almost as exceptional as his lyrics.
He really let us in, to bad I can not thank him.
describes me (at least, my interpretation of it does). and this is my first 'story,' so forgive me for sort of copping out and just posting lyrics. actually, i think in lyrics/quotations sometimes; i always have.
ANYWAY, back to the song - you know how simple tiny phrases...
first the mic then a half cigarette
singing Cathy's clown
that's the man she's married to now
that's the girl that he takes around town
she appears composed, so she is, I suppose
who can really tell
she shows no emotion at all
stares into space like a dead china...
I could watch lucky three again and again, its lovely. Hes amazing too, his lyrics are beautiful, his guitar playing is amazing... Even Miss Misery, that sounds so simple, is actually quite hard to play...
I adore between the bars, and kings crossing, and memory lane. all of his...
I love Elliott Smith so much no one else can compare to him. I love Elliott Smith so much I want to meet him in my dreams. I love Elliott Smith so much I want to see him when I die. I love Elliott Smith so much he took the place of John Lennon and Kurt Cobain in my heart. Like a...
I first met Elliott right before the start of his Fig 8 tour. He was doing solo shows prior to the release of Fig 8. I think I was 19 years old, and I drove from Knoxville to D.C. to see him at a club called the Black Cat. I had arrived probably two hours early and met a guy from...
Elliott smith is almost my fave musician of them all
I am drawn to the mellow folky beautiful haunted songs
I love the XO album the most
Figure 8 was my first introduction
Miss Misery is a remarkable song
elliott smith is my favourite music. i'd say i listen to elliott smith about 60% of the time. i listen to it no matter my mood. it's an experience to listen to him. every song is poetic and it grabs me. it seems to penetrate to my core in an eerie way that nothing else can match...
I have only recently discovered Elliot Smith's music. And I am completly blown away. His lyrics and melodies hold a silent power. I was sad to find out he died, R.I.P Elliott.
And again, I can't embed so here's a link- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oak4gXuRur8
His voice is just so gentle and beautiful, I could listen to his songs all day long. Its such a pity that he's no longer around. Quite a heavy loss for the world. :(
I've been through a lot of bad experiences, the past 7 years in particular have really done a number on me. I did'nt discover his music until after he had died. His music has kept me alive simply through identity and his ability to express thoughts in a manner far superior to...
