subject:      yup...another newbie intro :)

hello there :)


don't shoot please :)  i've used the name 'indigo girl' for a few years
now...even before i really got into the indigo girls...so really, i'm not
an obsessed fan or anything silly.


i just thought i would introduce myself, seeming that i am new to this
list. my name is xochitl (sochee) and i live in southern california (los
angeles to be exact). (woo hoo, no snow!:)  i was randomly adding a link to my
web page the other day, and after seeing the list information on one of
the pages many a time, i finally decided to subscribe.  so here i
am...making your day with my nonsense.  :)

i had a rather weird expression on my face upon logging in just now.
forty messages in the span of an hour! :)  i'm rather used to a large
volume of mail since i am also subscribed, and have been for over a year,
to the sarah mclachlan list.  but 40 messages! that's like one message
every minute and a half! :)

i also read something about t-shirts??  it's kind of cool how the sarah
list just got their t-shirts after tons of procrastination...very hard
work!  i'm glad you guys managed to pull it off. :)

since i've made it pretty obvious, i am in love with sarah mclachlan's
music. :)  both the indigo girls and sarah mclachlan have touched me in
many ways.  i adore suzanne vega and joni mithcell as well...


my first indigo girls encounter:

i was 16, and had met the boy of my dreams. :)  it was a summer of
fascination and wonder!  i had just had the best summer pof my entire
life and the sky was bluer than it had ever been (hey, i was 16 for crying
out loud:).  well, one day i was sitting on my parents bed watching mtv,
and the video for "least complicated" came on.

"and i bought you that ring 'cause i never was cool.  what makes me think
i can start clean slated, the hardest to learn was the least complicated."

after i heard that, i fell in love.  those lines described exactly how i
was feeling at the time.  how i was so   in love with this boy who i'd
only known for a week!  and who lived across the country! :)   oh, those
lines just made so much sense to me.  it  explained my entire adolesence.
:)  my entire life!  my first crush.:)   "least complicated" was the first
song that ment something to me.  a 'rite of passage' shall we say. :)  i
smile now thinking about it.  wow, i can't believe three years have
passed! :)   i feel so old now :)


but, i think i've rambled long enough!


with stained glass smiles,
xochitl :)

subject:      re: pot intro

   indigojo-- i cannot believe that you said that. bob dylans guitar
playing could be descibed as "limited" but no one would ever say he
couldn't contribute because of that. to me amy reprsents my spectrum of
the world in ig music. i love and appriciate emily but i feel as though
we come from different worlds. but i would never say that emilys
"fluffieness" prevented her from contributing. the fact is without each
other i seriously doubt they would have achieved any of the music success
they have.

mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

thanks for all of you who have responded to my nojf boot offer, yet so far
only *3* indifans have gotten all 10 questions right (even allowing two
tries :0).  so if you haven't taken the quiz yet and would like a free
5-4-96 nojf boot then please give it a shot.  in interest of bw please email
me privately for a list of the original questions and message, if you need them.
        secondly, the most popular answer to today's trivia question was
that emily would give you homegrown tomatoes if you showed up at her front
door.  trust me folks, emily would *be really pissed off* if you came over
uninvited!!!  gee, i wonder why???

       here's the most creative response in today's trivia question:
>i'd have to say f) all of the above. first she'd get really pissed off
>because i just showed up uninvited. then that brain of hers would get to
>scheming and she'd invite me in for a cup of tea and a wafer, just so i
>wouldn't suspect anything. after that, she'd set me on my way with a
>homegrown tomato. as i open the front door, she'd start singing least
>complicated to get my attention, and when i turn around, she'd shoot me.
>jendy

and (drumroll...please) here is today's chickenman trivia question:

        according to amy, there was some sort of wisdom imparted to her by
the         chickenman.  how did the c-man communicate that wisdom to her?
        a) through a walkie-talkie radio
        b) in a really cool song
        c) in chicken language
        d) some sort of vulcan mind-meld
        e) through a hole in the wall next to his front door

subject:      who's better?  does it matter?

this is one of those threads that comes out of withdrawal, isn't it?  =)
anyway, my quick two cents is that i think amy is a damn decent guitar
player, and that i think she's being a little hard on herself when she says
she sucks.  i think that, technically, emily is better on the guitar.  no
dispute there.  but amy, i think, puts a ton of emotion and power into her
playing.  also, i can actually play her songs on the guitar.  i've only been
playing a year, and po2 is beyond me, but i can play you anything amy.

also, i don't think that comment about lessons not being nessisary was fueled
totally by jealousy (yey, i own 1200 curfews now!).  i'm sure amy is still
(from elementary school) a little jealous of emily, but, heck, i think we all
are, aren't we?  =)

i think you can flame me if you want (why not?  i don't get enough e-mail . .
. ), but i'd just like to interject here that i'm a big emily person.  amy's
songs keep me in-line, though.  meaning, i get so - i don't know - depressed
by some of emily's songs that amy's always bring me back to my roots in hard
rock and everything good & seattle.  =)  they each need the other, and that's
all there is to it; it doesn't matter who's better because whoever is
couldn't be that good with out the other one for 'support.'  my .02

i remember, way back when we were doing the song of the day thread and it
was time to talk about reunion, this subject came up. there is the fact that
amy has a wonderful voice, and someone else also mentioned there's something
about the way emily's songs are structured or arranged that lend themselves
to being more of a showcase for the creative vocal interplay of lead &
harmony. reunion was brought up as an example of this can also happen to
great effect in an amy song, and how hopefully it will happen more often in
the future.

i also think that, where emily fills out amy's songs instrumentally, amy
does the same thing for emily's songs vocally. which is not to say that
rhythm guitar isn't important, or that emily doesn't have a lovely voice
herself! :) i guess that's why there's nothing like the two of them together.

does anyone want to revive the song of the day/week thread? i think there
are quite a few new folks who might enjoy it, and we could expend our
collective list energy in a productive ig way while waiting for the new
album ...

baby it's all such a treacherous game

hide yourself for me

ooooohhhhhhh [instrumental]

i stood without clothes, danced in the sand
i was aching with freedom, and kissing the damned
i said, "remember this is how it should be"

baby, i said, it's all in our hands
got to learn to respect what we don't understand
we are fortunate ones, fortunate ones i swear

hide yourself for me
i will hide myself for you, ohhh
i will hide myself for you, ah ahahh
i will hide myself for you, all for you [tacet]

i was aching with freedom, and kissing the damned

  fare thee well, my bright star
                f6(#4)      g                c(9)   g(4)/b
i watched your taillights blaze into nothingness
c                    g7/f         em7           am9
  but you were long gone before i ever got to you
f6(#4)         g                  am9   am7
  before you blazed past this address

    dm7(4)  c(9)/e         f6(9)            g
and now i think of having loved and having lost
    dm7(4)                c(9)/e         f6(9)    g7
you never know what it's like to never love

fare thee well, my bright star
the vanity of youth, the color of your eyes
maybe if i'd fanned the blazing fire of your day-to-day
or if i'd been older i'd been wise

too thick the heat of those long summer evenings
for a cool evening i began to yearn
but you could only feed upon the things which feed a fire
waiting to see if i would burn

fare thee well, my bright star
it was a brief brilliant miracle dive
that which i looked up to and i clung to for dear life
       f6(#4)      g - g#dim   am9          am7
had to burn itself up just to make itself alive

and i caught you then, in your moment of glory
your last dramatic scene against a night sky stage
with a memory so clear it's as if you're still before me
my once in a lifetime star of an age

so fare thee well, my bright star
last night the tongues of fire circled me around
and this strange season of pain will come to pass
when the healing hands of autumn cool me down

[an equal sign is a hammer-on; / is a slide.]

[each verse might have a few more or less notes, but the same fingerings.
the only big difference is the extra g#dim (6x0x0x) in verse 3.]
[actually, you can play it without tuning the high e down, if you want to
avoid the risk of string breakage.  the only adjustment you have to make
is in the second measure of the intro, and also on the "easy" version of
the g9 measures.]

ok then i'm gonna add to this ( though it is against my principles )

as a mostly rhythm player of the last way too many years i have to say
that if you think amy has nothing to contribute to the guitar playing
experience try getting the patterns right to ...

        pushing the needle
        joking
        r & j
        land of cannan

it takes a while.

what i will say is this .. emily does blow me away she makes the things
she does effortless ( the beginning pattern of lc for example ) emily
does have a better guitar vocab. this makes here playing "more exciting"
but just stop and check out amy on watchtower or kid fears or even j&e.
j&e is made up of 4 ( 5 at a stretch ) basic basic chords but i never
thought of putting them together like that !!

galileo (emily saliers)
-----------------------

[amy plays this in e, capoed up 1 to f.  emily plays it in c with a
capo on the fifth fret and her guitar tuned to dadgbc.  i'm going to
write down emily's chords, because they're easier and more interesting.
if you want to play amy's chords, you can figure them out; since it's
in e, there are a lot of barre chords.]
[actually, when i play this, i usually just play emily's chords, but
in standard tuning so i don't put my high e in danger of breaking when
i tune back up.  if you play in standard tuning, play the verse as
c g f g7-g6; it's pretty easy to play the g7 - g6 part, as long as
you play g as 320003 with your pinky on the high e string.  just play
em(c)/b as em, and play d13 as d or d11 (554030).]


[each chord is half a measure, except "g7 - g6" is half a measure _total_.]

c    gsus    f6(9)    g7 - g6      c    gsus    f6(9)    g7 - g6
[intro]

c      gsus           f6(9)        g7 - g6
   galileo's head was on the block
c                gsus             f6(9)  g7 - g6
   the crime was looking up the truth
c              gsus              f6(9)         g7 - g6
   and as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
         am         em(c)/b   f6(9)   gsus
i try to trace them to my youth

and then you had to bring up reincarnation
over a couple of beers the other night
and now i'm serving time for mistakes
made by another in another lifetime

    c            gsus          f6(9)       gsus
how long till my soul gets it right?   can any human
c          gsus               f6(9)     gsus
being ever reach that kind of light?  i call on the
am       em(c)/b   d13    d13
resting soul  of  galileo
         f6(9)       gsus      c      gsus   f6(9)   gsus
king of night vision, king of insight

then i think about my fear of motion
which i never could explain
some other fool across the ocean years ago
must have crashed his little airplane

how long till my soul gets it right?
can any human being ever reach that kind of light?
i call on the resting soul of galileo
         f6(9)       gsus      c      c
king of night vision, king of insight

am          am       f/a            f/a
   i'm not making a joke, you know me
        f#dim/a  f#dim/a   f/a      f/a
i take every - thing  so  seriously
      am            am            f/a          f/a
if we wait for the time till all souls get it right
        gsus                  f6(9)      gsus      f6(9)
then at least i know there'll be no nuclear annihilation
      c        gsus            f6(9)   gsus
in my lifetime; i'm still not right

c    gsus    f6(9)    g7 - g6      c    gsus    f6(9)    g7 - g6
[guitar solo]
c    gsus    f6(9)    g7 - g6      am    em(c)/b    d13    d13
[guitar solo]
f6(9)   gsus      c   gsus   f6(9)   gsus      c   gsus   f6(9)   gsus
[guitar solo]

i offer thanks to those before me
that's all i've got to say
'cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
now i have to pay

but then again it feels like some sort of inspiration
to let the next life off the hook
she'll say, "look what i had to overcome from my last life
i think i'll write a book"

how long till my soul gets it right?
can any human being ever reach the highest light?
except for the resting soul... (god rest his soul)
         f6(9)       gsus      c      gsus   f6(9)   gsus
king of night vision, king of insight

     c            gsus         f6(9)   gsus
how long till my soul gets it right...
     c          gsus               f6(9)   gsus
how long till i meet that highest light...
     c   gsus   f6(9)   gsus   c.
how long?


chords (tuning is dadgbc):

c: x32010    gsus: 5x0030    f6(9): 3x0010    g7: 5x0035    g6: 5x0034
am: x02210   em(c)/b: x22000*   d13: 009900   f/a: x03210   f#dim/a: x04210

*this should probably be called cmaj7/b, but in the context, it sounds more
like e minor, so i'm calling it "e minor with an added c (and b bass)."

alrighty, this little talk about singles has a got me wondering...a few
years back, i picked up the least complicated single--digipak, smashing
accoustic guitars in the road artwork, track list (to the best of a frazzled
memory) lc, dead man's hill (accoustic), some other accoustic track off so,
i don't wanna talk about it, and ctf (both studio)...the thing is, the spine
of the digipak says least complicated, the cd is the lc single, but the
front cover says "touch me fall." found it odd to say the least...

any list folk going to ani on 3/21 at the capitol theatre in port chester,
ny...email me privately...

peace,
bill

        hi y'all,

        it's been a slow night for me..i actually had the night off from work...so
i decided to watch the uptown video...again!!
        anyway...no slur meant against the video, but i noticed some things that
have been bothering me for a little while...
        at various times in the video, the editing team puts the wrong guitar
shots in the video.  am i imagining thing or does amy begin on her black
martin only to have a different martin in her hands during slow shots...in
several shots..."all along the watchtower"among others.
        not that it matters...it's still a great video, but i just wanted to check
my sanity!!

                peace,

                        jen

subject:      autographed rop cd fs

hi -
   long time lurker here, (i lurk from my work account but thought i should
write from my personal account). anyway - financial situations have forced me
to sacrifice some stuff i had wanted to keep.
   one of these is an autographed cd - rop. the cd is autographed (not the
booklet insert) by both amy and emily. i won this cd years ago from the local
college radio station ...
    best offer by midnight friday 1/31 gets it.
    also have a laptop pc for sale if anyone is interested.
    for those of you who think this is blasphemous to sell this -- i'm sorry
...

hi everyone!  :)

although i feel ashamed posting this (why?  you'll find out in a
minute.), it is ig-related.  you'll never believe where else i heard an indigo girls
reference on mtv...[never i tell you!  i fell off the couch in
disbelief!]  are you ready?

beavis and butthead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

aaa!  can you believe it?!  now, for the 'feeling ashamed' part of my
post.  the reason i know this, is because...<whisper>  i actually
watch it.  kinda.  sorta.  ummm...;)  it is shown on muchmusic in the
wee hours of the morning which is perfect for those bouts of
insomnia.  :)

anyway, beavis and butthead were sitting on the couch criticizing
music videos.  ("huh-huh...huh-huh...this sucks beavis.")  they were
playing a music video featuring a duet by lita ford and ozzy osborne
[i forget what it is called] and during a close-up shot of lita ford, beavis
inquires, "hey...isn't this the indigo girls?"

which is pretty dimwitted because we both know that the indigo girls
consists of *two* women, but beavis isn't exactly a genius.  <grin>
anyway, despite the intelligent component of the show, i was happy to
hear the ig mentioned.  i suppose one could interpret the comment as
a put-down, but i chose to view it as extra publicity for them.  who
would have thought that beavis and butthead would have
even the slightest idea who amy and emily are?

i have no idea whether the episode was a repeat or not, but i thought
i would throw this "obscure place to hear about the ig" into the
fray...;)

sincerely,
lisa j. :)

ghost (emily saliers)
---------------------
[no capo; each chord is half a measure.]


d/f#  g  c(9)  g/b  (repeating, fading in)
[intro]

          d/f#          g             c(9)           g/b
there's a letter on the desktop that i dug out of a drawer
           d/f#         g                c(9)       g/b
the last truce we ever came to from our adolescent war
        d/f#             g              c(9)                   g/b
and i start to feel the fever from the warm air through the screen
         d/f#           g      c(9)         g6/b    c(9)  g6/b  d(9)/f#  g6
you come regular like seasons, shadowing my dreams

    d(9)/f#        g6              c(9)         g6/b
the mississippi's mighty, but it starts in minnesota
       d(9)/f#             g6               c(9)           g6/b
at a place that you could walk across with five steps down
      d(9)/f#                   g6            c(9)           g6/b
and i guess that's how you started like a pinprick to my heart
             d(9)/f#                g6              c(9)         c(9)
but at this point you rush right through me and i start to drown

            d          d#dim        em7          a7sus - a7
and there's not enough room in this world for my pain
d                  d/c#               bm7                   bm7
signals cross and love gets lost and time passed makes it plain
   d            d#dim     em7           a7sus - a7
of all my demon spirits i need you the most
c(9)      g6/b            d(9)/f#  g6
  i'm in love with your ghost
       c(9)    g6/b        d(9)/f#  g6
  i'm in love with your ghost

dark and dangerous like a secret that gets whispered in a hush
when i wake the things i dreamt about you last night make me blush
when you kiss me like a lover, then you sting me like a viper
i go follow to the river, play your memory like the piper

and i feel it like a sickness, how this love is killing me
but i'd walk into the fingers of your fire willingly
and dance the edge of sanity, i've never been this close
c(9)        g6/b       d(9)/f#   g6
   in love with your ghost

         c(9)     g6/b        d(9)/f#  g6
oo oo-oo ooooooooooooo oo-oo oooooo oo oooo
         c(9)     g6/b        d(9)/f#  g6
oo oo-oo ooooooooooooo oo-oo oooooo oo oooo

          em7            em7            a7sus     a7
unknowing captor, you'll never know how much you
           d      d/c#         f#7sus4    f#7
pierced my spirit, but i can't touch you
             bm    bm/a        e7/g#   g
can you hear it, a cry to be free
b7       b7         em          e   am   c      d      d/c   g/b   d
  i'm forever under lock and key as you pass through me

now i see your face before me, i would launch a thousand ships
to bring your heart back to my island as the sand beneath me slips
as i burn up in your presence, and i know now how it feels
to be weakened like achilles, with you always at my heels

and my bitter pill to swallow is the silence that i keep
it poisons me, i can't swim free, the river is too deep
though i'm baptized by your touch, i am no worse at most
   c(9)  g6/b       d(9)/f#   g6
in love with your ghost
   c(9)  g6/b       d(9)/f#              g6
in love with your ghost  (shadowing my dreams)
   c(9)  g6/b       d(9)/f#    g6
in love with your ghost  (ooooooooh)
   c(9)  g6/b       d(9)/f#     g6
in love with your ghost  (ooooooooh)

c(9)   g/b   d/f#   g
[instrumental: repeat and fade]


notes on some chords:
* if you don't want to play d#dim (xx1212), play b7/d# (xx1202) instead;
it doesn't sound much different.
* i think the girls play f#11 (244300) where i've written f#7sus4 & f#7
(x44420 & x44320), and some god-awful g#m and gmaj7 chords where i wrote
e7 & g.  do whatever you think works best for you.
* in the chorus, try playing the second half of d and d#dim (or b7/d#) with
the third fret on the high e string.  it matches the vocals that way.


tab:

the picking pattern for the intro, first verse, and outro goes like this
(note the continuous d note on the third fret of the b string):

  d/f#            g                c(9)            g/b
e --------------------------------|--------------------------------|
b ------3-------3-------3-------3-|------3-------3-------3-------3-|
g --2-------2-------0-------0-----|--0-------0-------0-------0-----|
d ----0-------0-------0-------0---|----2-------2-------0-------0---|
a --------------------------------|3-------3-------2-------2-------|
e 2-------2-------3-------3-------|--------------------------------|
  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .


for the rest of the song, where it goes d(9)/f# g6 c(9) g6/b, it's a
little trickier (hint: the thumb handles all the notes on the e, a, and
d strings):

  d(9)/f#         g6               c(9)            g6/b
e ------0---------------0---------|------0---------------0---------|
b ----------3---------------3-----|----------3---------------3-----|
g --2-----------2---0-----------0-|--0-----------0---0-----------0-|
d ----0-------0-------0-------0---|----2-------2-------0-------0---|
a --------------------------------|3-------3-------2-------2-------|
e 2-------2-------3-------3-------|--------------------------------|
  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .  ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ . ^ .


and then there's this little fill in the intro and outro:

  d/f#            g                c(9)            g/b
e --------------------------------|3-----2-----3-------------------|
b ----------3-----1-----0---------|----------------3---------------|
g ------0-------------------------|--------------------------------|
d 2/4-------------2-----0---------|--------------------------------|
a --------------------------------|3---------------2---------------|
e --------------------------------|--------------------------------|

i was looking for some advice from guitar players....especially anyone who
plays left handed.  i started taking a guitar glass tonight and the
instructor recommended i switch my strings and learn how to play
right-handed?!?  he said now when i am just learning is the best time to
learn right-handed.  my question is once you get past learning the
strings/notes/chords....what difference does it make which hand you play with
???  i looked in an indigo song book i have (of course i plan to learn their
songs!!) and it didn't seem to matter in any way.  does anyone have any
feedback on this?  any information would be appreciated.

>>news bulletin: saying it will improve the education of children who
>>have grown up immersed in computer lingo, the school board in san
>>jose, calif., has officially designated computer english, or
>>"geekonics", as a second language.
>>
>>the historic vote on geekonics -- a combination of the word "geek"
>>and the word "phonics" -- came just weeks after the oakland school
>>board recognized black english, or ebonics, as a distinct language.
>>
>>"this entirely reconfigures our parameters," milton "floppy"
>>macintosh, chairman of geekonics unlimited, said after the school
>>board became the first in the nation to recognize geekonics.
>>
>>"no longer are we preformatted for failure," macintosh said during a
>>celebration that saw many geekonics backers come dangerously close
>>to smiling. "today, we are rebooting, implementing a program to
>>process the data we need to interface with all units of humanity."
>>
>>controversial and widely misunderstood, the geekonics movement was
>>spawned in california's silicon valley, where many children have
>>grown up in households headed by computer technicians, programmers,
>>engineers and scientists who have lost ability to speak plain
>>english and have inadvertently passed on their high-tech vernacular
>>to their children.
>>
>>helping the transition
>>
>>while schools will not teach the language, increased teacher
>>awareness of geekonics, proponents say, will help children make the
>>transition to standard english. those students, in turn, could
>>possibly help their parents learn to speak in a manner that would
>>lead listeners to believe that they have actual blood coursing
>>through their veins.
>>
>>"bit by bit, byte by byte, with the proper system development, with
>>nonpreemptive multitasking, i see no reason why we can't download
>>the data we need to modulate our oral output," macintosh said.
>>
>>the designation of ebonics and geekonics as languages reflects a
>>growing awareness of our nation's lingual diversity, experts say.
>>
>>other groups pushing for their own languages and/or vernaculars to
>>be declared official viewed the geekonics vote as a step in the
>>right direction.
>>
>>"this is just, like, ok, you know, the most totally kewl thing,
>>like, ever," said jennifer notat-albright, chairwoman of the
>>committee for the advancement of valleyonics, headquartered in
>>southern california. "i mean, like, you know?" she added.
>>
>>they're happy in dixie
>>
>>"yeee-hah," said buford "kudzu" davis, president of the dixionics
>>coalition. "y'all gotta know i'm as happy as a tick on a sleeping
>>bloodhound about this. we could be fartin' thru silk perty soon."
>>
>>spokesmen for several subchapters of dixionics -- including
>>alabonics, tennesonics and louisionics -- also said they approved of
>>the decision.
>>
>>bill flack, public information officer for the blue ribbon task
>>force on bureaucratonics said that his organization would not
>>comment on the san jose vote until it convened a summit meeting,
>>studied the impact, assessed the feasibility, finalized a report and
>>drafted a comprehensive action plan, which, once it clears the
>>appropriate subcommittees and is voted on, will be made public to
>>those who submit the proper information-request forms.
>>
>>proponents of ebonics heartily endorsed the designation of geekonics
>>as an official language.
>>
>>"i ain't got no problem wif it," said earl e. byrd, president of the
>>ebonics institute. "you ever try talkin' wif wunna dem computer
>>dudes? don't matter if it be a white computer dude or a black
>>computer dude; it's like you be talkin' to a robot -- ram, dos,
>>undelete, megahertz. ain't nobody understands. but dey keep talkin'

>>those involved in the lingual diversity movement believe that only
>>by enacting many different english languages, in addition to all the
>>foreign ones practiced here, can we all end up happily speaking the

>>yankonics debate
>>====================
>>
>>      portland, maine, december 30.  in a move that has surprised
>> educators nationwide, the portland board of education announced today
>> that, beginning january 1, all portland schools would provide teacher
>> and parent training in yankee english, or so-called yankonics,
>> recognize yankonics as distinct from standard english, and help yankee
>> children who use yankonics to master standard english.
>>
>>      in its resolution, the portland school board described yankee
>> english as a distinct language, rather than a dialect of standard
>> english. the district  said it would not teach yankonics, derived from the
>> words yankee and phonics, in place of standard english, and would not
>> try to classify yankonics-speaking students as bilingual in order to
>> obtain federal funds.
>>
>>      both the clinton administration and congressional republicans
>> moved quickly to attack the announcement, with the administration emphasizing
>> that  it would refuse to grant special funding.  in augusta, gov. angus
>> king (ind.) defended the resolution.  "they're not trying to teach
>> yankee english as a standard language.  they're looking for tools to teach
>> children standard english so they might be competitive," king
>> told reporters.  an estimated 53 per cent of portland's 13,000 students
>> speak  yankee english at home and district officials say they have the
>> lowest average grade point averages in the district.
>>
>>
>>      reaction in the city was guarded, but supportive.  lobsterman john
>> nadeau, 43, of fore st. said, "every yeah it gets hahda and hahda for
>> ouah kids to get the jawbs they need.  i cahn't say if this will wohk
>> oah nawt, but at least its a staht."
>>
>>      the lunch crowd at demillo's echoed nadeau's position.  mary
>> lamoreaux, 54, of falmouth foreside concurred.  "i've got two
>> daughtahs, neithah of whom cahn undahstahnd hahlf the things they heah on tv.
>> something needs to be done."
>>
>>      patrick payson, 35, a developer at one city center, admitted that
>> he's found his linguistic heritage a difficult cross to bear at times.
>> "i went down new yahk a few weeks ago foah some meetins.  it took me
>> close to two days to figuah out what people weah tahlking about.  rest
>> assuahed, i was wicked confused when i gawt bahck."
>>
>>      some, however, were not convinced.  arthur wentworth, 87, a
>> scrimshaw artist in the old port said, "deah gawd.  yeahs ago no one
>> cahed so much about this soht of thing, we just went on about ouah
>> business.  i don't see  much use in this.  if people from away cahn't
>> understahnd what weah saying,  then they just ought head back to
>> massasstwoshits, oah wheyevah they came frawm."
>>
>>      asked if he'd lived in portland all his life, wentworth replied,
>> "not yet."

hello ig-land!
just a quick ig story.
last night i was a participant in a 2 hour music survey - you just sit
in a room with about 20 other people & rate artists & the music they
play on the radio (i live in seattle).
there were 650 short clips of different songs & about 100 artists listed
to rate.  the rating system goes like this...you rate the song/artist by
this criteria...

dislike a lot           dislike         like    like a lot

and you also rate how much you feel it is played or should be played on
the radio by this criteria...

too much        not enough              just right

they had 4 indigo girls songs out of 650 (not nearly enough).  they were
of course, least complicated, power of two, closer to fine and
galileo... not big surprise there...
anyway, needless to say, i got a chance to put in a vote for our beloved
girls.
needless to say... here is the official vote...

indigo girls
like a lot &  not enough (play on the radio)

ps - i looked at a bunch of other people's surveys & wouldn't you know
it - they all voted the same way.  that's great!  now maybe we will be
hearing more ig on the radio stations here in seattle at least.

in friendship....

hi everyone!  :)

recently, there has been friendly debate discussing whether emily
sounds as if she is saying "git out the map".  well, this reminded me
of something that we did on the sarah mclachlan mailing list (hi
xochitl!  <grin>).

if you send an e-mail to the address jive@ifi.unizh.ch, they
transcribe your message into "jive language".  i sent the lyrics to
get out the map, and they sent the following...

hope this brings about a few smiles.  :) :) :)

chuckling,
lisa j. :)

get out the map

        de saddest sight mah' eyes kin see
        dat big-ass ball uh o'ange sinkin' slyly waaay down de trees

        suzanne calls fum boston, de coffee's hot, de co'n be high
        dat same sun dat warms yo' heart, gots'ta suck dat baaaad eard dry
        wid everydin' its opposite enough t'keep ya' cryin'
        or keep dis whole wo'ld spinnin' wid some twinkle in it's eye

        and git out da damn map, git out da damn map and lay yo' fin'a' anywhere waaay down
        we'll leave da damn figurin' t'dose we pass on our way outta town
        don't drink de booze, dere seems t'be somedin' ailin' everyone
        and i'm gonna clear mah' 'haid, i'm gonna drink dat sun
        i'm gonna love ya' baaaad and strong while our love be baaaad and yung

        joni left fo' soud africa some few years ago
        and den bed took some job all de way ova' on de west coast
        and me, i'm still tryin' t'live half some life on de road
        heavia' by de year
        heavia' by de load

        why do we hurtle ourselves drough every inch uh time and space
        ah' must say around some co'na' i kin sense some restin' place
        wid every lesson learned, some line upon yo' beautiful face
        and we'll amuse ourselves one day wid dese memo'ies we'll trace

        and git out da damn map, git out da damn map and lay yo' fin'a' anywhere waaay down

thin line - indigo girls, from 1200 curfews
(written by gerard mchugh)

this is my first attempt at transcribing a song so please forgive any
mistakes. it's quite simple though so there shouldn't be too many. for
g/b and g/a (these names are made up) you'll probably just want to play
strings 4 and 5, as if you were playing a power chord.

chords: g=320033; dsus/f#=200233; c9=x32033; d=xx0232;
        g/b=x20033; g/a=x00033

g   dsus/f#   c9
[intro x2]

g              dsus/f#       c9
i thought the time   was    passed when i could

g              dsus/f#       c9
          find beauty in a verse

g              dsus/f#       c9
     i set the stage and the scenery

g              dsus/f#       c9
         rehearsing every  word, yeah

     d               d
but when i tried to make it more

             c9           g
well it was     always less

            d                 d
and it's a thin line between pleasing yourself

              c9           g/b g/a g
and pleasing     somebody e-  e-  else

dsus/f#        c9
         oh yeah

      g      dsus/f#            c9
oh yeah              all right


g              dsus/f#       c9
     with my confidence on  fire

g              dsus/f#       c9
     i set to fixin' up my    role

g              dsus/f#       c9
       my separation of desire

g              dsus/f#              c9

hi guys .. delete this if you want igc. read on if you want to help a poor pathetic me with your creative juices.. 'cause mine went the way of the dodo.


ok .. i have recently acquired my own ip address at work, and i get to pick the domain name for the computer. i need ideas for the name.

for those of you who are now going *huh?!* .. here's what i mean:


amy@______.homecom.com


i get to pick the word that goes in the blank ... get it?

so i need some ideas .. not only ig related, because the computer is my boyfriend's, and so he's got to approve too. but shower me with any ideas, please!


here's some that i thought of:

indigo

underworld

rainish      (personal nickname thing *smile*)

coruscant  (the planet the rebels made their base after they conquered the empire after return of the jedi (only one more day!!!! yippee!!!) )

odyssey

area51


the result would be (for those who might still be confused...) underworld.homecom.com or area51.homecom.com ... you get the picture (i hope)


please reply to me .. i'm sure the list has better things to do :)


merry thursday,

hey...i'm just putting in a little vote for the song of the day revival...
i don't mean to sound completely selfish, but i'm pretty sure that there
are some others on the list who feel the same way when i say: so much
space is currently be taken up by guitar chords, lyrics, etc.....
which is cool -- i don't mean to bash it -- but couldn't people be emailed
privately about this??  the song of the day was a great idea...really
got us interpreting and relating personal experiences concerning
the amazing words to these songs we truly love..........and also gave
several people (counting me) new outlooks and perspectives.  anyway,
just thought i'd share...

mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
content-transfer-encoding: 8bit

hey y'all,

i am not a doctor, nor do i play one on tv, but i think i can diagnose what was wrong with the list the last few days. it od'd on bad vibes. i'm just kidding, of course, but it was getting a little testy in here last week. i mean, i know we are all very different people on the list. we are women and men, gay and straight, young and not as young as we used to be. the point is: we subscribe to this list because we found an island of common ground - we all enjoy indigo girls music. am i right? can i get a witness?

okay, then, follow me on this. we've had plenty of arguments (discussions) about sexual orientation, politics, religion, public displays of affection, haircuts, release dates. you name it, we'll discuss it. in the past, if the line got drawn in the sand, inevitably someone would say, "what would the girls want?" or "what would they think of this?" i've always shied away from such presumptions, preferring to stay in my usual lurking mode. i mean, unless amy or emily specifically comment on an issue, who am i to say what they think?

this time, however, it is too much! i think mean people suck and i just bet they agree. just a while back, a thread about emily's appearance got mean quick. last week, there was a thread from hell on this list debating who is better at this and that, a or e. i think the debate alone is pretty uncool, but what it deteriorated into was just horrible, imho. not only did people post disparaging remarks about a and e to the list, they flamed each other privately about it. let's all take a minute here and raise up! unless i am missing something, i think a lot of what ig music is about is: human relationships, peace, love and understanding and respect. can i get an amen, here? i said, can i get an amen, my brothers and sisters?

my grandma always told me, "if you don't have something good to say, then keep your mouth shut!" of course, she also used to say, "i can drive my own damn car, i've still got sight in my left eye!" so - go figure! i always thought she made a lot of sense. she was a saint to me.

okay, sorry to ramble on so. if you will all just take your seats and ride quietly, grandma won't have to pull this car over again. now, get out the map and let's see where the hell we are going!

peace, love and good vibes,

susan

subject:      fugitive
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

ok, i don't remember if this was discussed before or not, but can we take a
minute on fugitive?  one of my favorite lines in any song ever is "i stood
without clothes, danced in the sand, i was aching with freedom issing the
damned, i said remember this as how it should be"

this has always struck a chord with me!(no pun intended!=))

to me this song represents a person who has discovered something(maybe their
sexuality), and finally felt some freedom, but then had to hide it
away...but never wanted to lose it!

then realizing that everyone has "got to get burned" and that the "curse and
the blessing are one in the same"  meaning that societies restricting views
come hand in hand with that freedom just discovered.

"we've got to learn to respect what we don't understand, we are fortunate
ones, fortunate ones i swear"  so everything is all messed up in your head
and heart, but at least you have that taste of freedom.

does anyone agree with me, or do you think that i am just pulling this out
of my butt?=)

i just thought i would bring in a "song of the week"  or however long this
thread lasts!!!

take care everyone!
peace

subject:      song of the day: strange fire
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"

hello everyone!

well, seems like some people are supportive of reviving the song of the
day/week thread ... which would everyone prefer? per day or per week? i
remember we changed to to per week, so that people who receive the list in
digest form, or aren't able to check their mail every day, could get their
posts in.

would people be okay with starting from the "beginning," ie. the first song
of the first full-length album? (not counting the ep or the "crazy game"
single, unless people want to start there ...) if starting at the
"beginning" would be all right, then the song of the day is strange fire.

personally, i don't have any profound thoughts either, except to say that i
love this song. i've heard amy say that it's "dedicated to the reverend
jimmy swaggart," so it can be interpreted as being about the hypocrisy that
can be found sometimes in organized religion. the meaning that i derive from
it includes that, but also has a lot to do with feeling personally
empowered. this song helps makes me feel that being "weird" or "different"
is not a bad thing at all.

okay, that's it ... thought i'd attempt to get things going. everyone, feel
free to jump in!

on strange fire and the sot{w|d} thread:
i vote for doing song of the week; it gives everyone more time to get their
thoughts in, whether they get the digest or not.

strange fire is a good place to start because when this thread last died off,
we were just at the end of _indigo_girls_, and _strange_fire_ is the next
album in chronological order if you consider the epic release of sf rather than
the indie release. in fact, i was just going to post about it when i saw anna's
message in my box.

so, unless anyone has objections to it, let's say that whoever is logged on
closest to midnight (your local time) every friday, and has the inclination,
posts a reminder of
what the new sotw is (and yes, this is self-interested because i stay up late
playing with the computer pretty often, but it seems like a pretty good system
to me.)

subject:      newbie intro & questions
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

hey folks. just joined, figured i'd introduce myself.  i'm colleen.  i'm
a 20 year old junior at cornell university and hail from long island,
ny.  funny given what little play time ig get on mtv that both me and the
last newbie who wrote had our first exposure from videos.  in my case it
was galileo and actually now that i think about it, i think it was vh-1.
in any case, the part about the cute fuzzy bear cubs amused the hell out
of me so i ran out and bought the single since i was unwilling to take
the financial gamble for a whole cd of a group i didn't know. (they get
virtually zero radio play on the staions where i live, especially then.)
whoever decided to put the excerpts from other rop tracks on that
cassette single was a genius because they sucked me in immediately.  i
quickly ran out and bought the cd and soon after, all the previous ones.
   anyway, i also had a couple of questions.  just the other day i tried
to order the jesus christ superstar cd off of the daemon records web
site.  i'm pretty sure it didn't work cause i think i forgot to click the
box specifying visa or mastercard and i'm having some problems with my
credit card anyway.  but i'm gonna try again.  i also might pick up
something by michelle malone.  so i was wondering, has anyone out there
ever ordered anything via that web site?  did it work out ok and did they
send you email or anything to let you know they received your order?
   and speaking of michelle malone, i saw her when she opened for ig this
summer at the roseland in nyc on the practice tour and thought she was
pretty cool.  not the greatest songwriter maybe, but a hell of a live
performer.  so i wanted to get something of hers and give her another
listen.  anyone have any thoughts as to what's good if anything?  there's
actually a copy of an old drag the river album that's been sitting in the
used record store around the block from my apartment for months.  i don't
know ifshe did more than one album with them but i forget what it's
called.  i've been considering buying it but just looking at the hideous
photo on the cover, something tells me it's not gonna be too good.
anybody ever heard it?  thanks.

subject:      "fugitive" and the freedom (from the closet) question

hi all.  i posted this to the newsgroup last year.  yes, this de-lurking
shows how self-absorbed i am :).  i only saved it because i love the song so
much.  but it's been edited-- now that i've learned a bit more.  the most
notable deletion being the identification of who it was written for i.e. the
person she was seeing.  not that i went about doing it in an indecorous
fashion in the original post-- it was organic to the discussion, and she's
mentioned who it was before in some context.  but, after re-reading it for a
re-posting, i thought it should be taken out if it means getting too close to
their personal lives (which is part of what the whole song's about). because
of a lot of the discussion and prying it might potentially generate in this
vacuum preceding "map".

so den.  to the (long) post.  apologies to those who had to endure it before.

##
somebody posted a request for interpretations of "fugitive".  here's what the
"swamp ophelia" page on their sony website has to say:

amy wrote "fugitive" during the indigos' last round of touring; not so
coincidentally, perhaps, the song ponders the conflicting demands of love,
work, and privacy. "got to learn to respect what we don't understand," goes
one key line. "that's when you're having a relationship and your relationship
is invaded because of what your career is doing," ray explains. "at the same
time, you're reaping positive things from your career, you're alive and
healthy...

"it's just saying that we have to respect the way things are moving, even if
we don't understand sometimes. maybe there's something bigger in the works
that we'll understand later. the song is more about wrestling with yourself
than it is about being famous--we're not that famous!"
_____________________________________________________
and here's what ms. ray herself has to say- i got these excerpts from
interviews posted here in the past year:
february 18, 1994 -- unknown

"fugitive" is - it's kind of a love song, but it's also, you know, it's very
abstract.  it's me, the struggle within myself and the struggle with someone
else to create commitment in a world of this -- of the music industry, which
is really kind of screwy.  and the ideas of invading privacy and-- it's about
freedom, really, and about the ability to be free.  you can be free no matter
what, you know. . . i don't know what i'm writing about half the time when
i'm writing, so i can't really - i can't, like, pin it down like emily can.
##
march ??, 1995 -- queensland pride
"closest to fine"  (interview by catherine mckenzie)

although they are practiced hands when it comes to touring, it is still
something that the girls find grueling. a testament to the problems it can
cause can be found in the girls' latest album swamp  ophelia. the song
'fugitive' written by amy, looks at the conflicting demands of love, work and
privacy.

"my music permeates my life in so many different ways", amy said. "i have so
many other things going on, and my relationship is with a musician too. that
song was really about how you deal with being in the same career within your
relationship, where you're both dealing with the same privacy issues."

"my priorities have changed a lot and i think 'fugitive' is a recognition of
that. i used to be extremely career-oriented. everything was indigo girls, 24
hours a day, and a lot of it had to do with ego.  now my priorities are to my
relationship and to my family. i love music but we've gotten better at
setting boundaries and having parameters. i've also moved to a place and
no-one knows where i live so i don't have to deal with privacy invasion and
things like that."
_____________________________________________________
i scanned over all the articles i saved from this newsgroup-- i don't
remember which one, but amy said that she had been in a relationship for
about 5 years.  i believe the date was sometime in '94.  and a profile of ms.
ray in the nov. 16, 1990 issue of island ear (whatever that is), contains a
category of most significant achievement, in which amy replies: successful
relationship.  this is obviously something (and someone) very important to
her; think of all the other things she could've picked to fill in that blank.

love, work, and privacy.  "are they coming for us, with cameras or guns?  we
don't know which, but we gotta run.  and you say, 'this is not what i
bargained for'.  so hide yourself for me.  all for me."  the lyrics are
pretty straightforward after the insight that these interviews give us.

these priorities that amy refers to: the group 24 hours a day, ego, anything
that displaces a loved one from the closeness that's needed to make things
work: "i got caught up in the whirl, twirl of it all.  a day in the sun
dancing alone, baby i'm so sorry."  as musicians, they both have to deal with
these things: "now it's coming to you-- the lessons i learned.  won't do you
any good, you got to get burned.  well the curse and the blessings, they're
one in the same, baby it's all-lll-llll such a treacherous gain."

she says it's also about freedom-- the (lyrical) part that i love: "i stood
without clothes, danced in the sand.  i was aching with freedom, kissing the
damned [who? queers, native americans, women, immigrants, pwas . . . ].  i
said: 'remember this as how it should be'.  ho-oooh . . . we are fortunate
ones, fortunate ones i swear."  and then the reciprocity part that
demonstrates her understanding of this relationship's, and the person's,
importance to her: not only is it, hide yourself for me, but also "i will
hi-iide myself for you.  all for you.  all for you."  repeated to show her
conviction and her recognition, finally, of it.  the ability to strike a
balance, or at least devote the time and effort to the things, and people,
that can become obscured by celebrity: "i will hide myself for you.  all for
yo-oooou."

and to finish, a reiteration of that glorious image of freedom: "i stood
without clothes, danced in the sand.  i was aching with freedom, kissing the
damned.  i said: 'remember this as how it should be'."

whooo!  i've wondered over all their songs to figure which one is my
favorite.  and though it's difficult and heart-rending to single one out,
"fugitive" always seems to roar it's way to the top. never ever ever do i
tire of listening to it.  of singing to it. it has this momentum that just
builds and builds.  steadily, inexorably, wonderfully.  and the interweaving
of their voices is much more overt (like in "love will come to you").
intense, soaring, incredible stuff. i even learned how to play it on the
guitar!  so i am ecstatic.  forgive my phallocentrism, but i just love how it
works itself into a climax.

without reading those articles and interviews, i never would have conceived
of this as a *love song*.  it's an incredible gift.  could you imagine
somebody writing and singing something like this for you?  <sigh>

hello, all!

this seems to have become public knowledge within the past couple of
days, so i thought i would announce it to the list:

the ig will be at my alma mater, mount holyoke college (the first
institution established for the higher education of women in the united
states!), on thursday, march 13, 1997.  it will be in chapin auditorium,
which holds 1600 standing (i.e., this will be a general admission show).
the 1600 includes people on two balconies, both of which have great
views.  so you can imagine how small the floor is.  hint:  if you don't
get a seat in the first third of the floor your seat will be better from
a balcony--go up!

ok, i will post more when i know it and please please please don't start
harrassing student activities because they already have tons to do and
they don't need aggressive ig fans calling to harrass them about stuff
they don't know yet.

margaret, who feels like this is the school's graduation present to her

yesyesyes!! check this out... look what you get when you combine "murder
by numbers" with "123".

mbn -  "once you've decided on a killing
        first you make a stone of your heart..."

123 -  "i understand your causes, sympathize the motivation.
        but all the details of this war are just self-infatuation."

mbn -  "and if you find that your hands are still willing
        then you can turn a murder into art."

123 -  "manic blood runs thick my friend, are you looking for a clean
        escape?"

mbn -  "there really isn't any need for bloodshed
        you just do it with a little more finesse..."

123 -  "here's a chance to make a choice, are you aware of the fire
        beneath your feet?"

mbn -  "if you can slip a tablet into someone's coffee
        it avoids an awful lot of mess.

        it's murder by numbers one two three..."

123 -  "1 2 3 nothing's for free..."

ok, you get the idea. pretty erie, huh? yeah, i know, i have way too much
time on my hands.

i just bought tickets this morning for both of shawn's shows at the
variety playhouse in atlanta on march 14 & 15.  i saw her in concert for
the first time back in dec. of '95 in minneapolis.  then she was playing
by herself which was amazing.  this concert series is with her entire band, i
think.  it will be different, but just as good.  if you have the
opportunity to go, do it!!  she has a very warm stage presense and most
of her songs are personal and autobiographical.  in addition,  i'm told
that she is going to have two other performers with her.  freddy johnston
and a personal favorite of mine, patti griffin.  it will be a show well
worth your time and money, but get your tickets soon because i know
they'll go fast.

peace,

i don't know why i get so excited about these sorts of things but i just
had to share. ;) another list i am on (billy bragg) started a tape loop.
each person on the loop made a mix tape of music with only one rule: "no
billy bragg." the idea was to expose other list members to music they
might not have heard yet. so every 2 weeks you send on the tape you
received 2 weeks earlier and if all goes right you get a new one in the
mail. continue til you get yours back. well one side i devoted to my
favorite ani difranco songs and the other side i devoted to gee i wonder.
well one of the uk list members just sent me a nice email about my tape
that made me feel all warm and wiggly -- and i quote:

"i've just spent 2 weeks with your loop tape and really enjoyed it. i
had some ani difranco stuff - but the indigo girls were new and most
excellent - i'll be trying out some more."

woohoo! i told him all about 4.5 and then went off for a bit about ig
related things that probably bored him to death but it gave me an excuse
to babble about the girls. ;)

ok, so i am partly dismayed that so many people don't know where mount
holyoke is and party embarrassed that i didn't remember to say.

it is in south hadley, ma, which is 20 minutes south of amherst and
northampton and 20 north of springfield.

works?

half moon cafe (emily saliers)
------------------------------
[actually in bb; capo 1.]
[it might be easier to play this with the high e tuned down to d;
then play a/c# as x42222 and e as 022102.]


d     a/c#     bm7     e-f#m-g#m
[intro; play four times]

       d            a/c#    bm7         e-f#m-g#m
at the half moon cafe, we drank to our lives
     d          a/c#     bm7    e-f#m-g#m
like pseudo-believers in love
                       d            a/c#           bm7
we've been through our holes in the walls and the dives
          bm7            g(9)          g(9)           bm   e
where you drink to recall what you once had a vision of

       c#dim        c#dim       c#dim   c#dim
and we talk of our lives in a prison
          bm             bm/a       bm/g#   e
though we both know it's better to be
a           a/g      d     bm7
safe within our indecision
     a                     a     e   e-f#m-g#m
than taking the risk to be free

and you were to be a great poet
and i'd find my fame in song
but we somehow saw failure more closely
than fame all along

and now you manage a hamburger stand
and i haven't found steady work yet
and we meet here to talk and pretend
that we know no regret

                dsus9       e                 a
but how much is chance, how much would you decide?
a           dsus9         dsus9    gmaj9
how much is murder of our dreams
    gmaj9      bm   bm   e   e
how much is suicide?

so you ask of my latest top 40
and i ask of your latest great fiction
as i step outside i see that the moon is full
i have to laugh at the contradiction

well, at least we can laugh at our dreams
though it's really much more bitter than sweet
sometimes through all of this fragmentation
i imagine what it feels to be complete

but how much is chance, how much would you decide?
how much is murder of our dreams
how much is suicide?

[repeat intro chords with humming; end on x02200-x02220.]

subject:      random comments on my fave ig songs

i wanted to contribute to the 'song o' the day' woohah, but i simply
could not pick just one that i wanted to comment upon. so i am choosing
the ones that have the most personal meaning to me. i think part of our
respect and enjoyment of the indigo girls comes from how we personally
relate to the lyrics, music, etc. we get a lot more out of something
from what we bring to it.

"ghost" reminds me of my first boyfriend ever.  i had always been
scorned as a freak, and there i was, with someone. then, he broke up
with me <for reasons for which i now forgive him.. we are friends> and i
could not get over it.. ever after i started going out with my current
boyfriend of 15 months, he would come "regular like seasons, shadowing
my dreams.." the lyrics are simply beautiful, moving, and emotionally
powerful. the music, though simple, is hauntingly sublime.

"fare thee well" is a song that i'm afraid i will have to sing one day.
i am leaving for college next year. i will have to say goodbyes.. maybe
to my boyfriend. it also scares me that someone i know might have to
"burn themsevles up just to make themselves alive". i do this sometimes,
too. some say i have a martyr complex, but ig often help me deal w/that,
b/c "if the world is night, shine my life like a light."

that's all for now. good night. i'm seeing star wars in a few hrs. :)

well, i guess i'd vote against that.  the reason we've done the major
releases is most people can get their hands on them easily and
everyone can contribute to the conversation.  the ep and other early
releases don't have the market depth. "had you ever heard this song,
you'd notice" isn't a great conversation builder.

anyway, just my two cents.

                                -- chris

p.s.  i also like making it song of the week, instead of song of the
day.  hopefully by the time we get through 12cc, map will be out an we
can throw that into the mix too!

mime-version: 1.0

hello everyone!

i do not have a lot to contribute in the way of concert experiences(never seen ig in concert, want to though)
but i can tell you about my favorite songs!

i, too have a strong connection to "ghost"
my first boyfriend(who is now my husband, after many a rocky start)has always made me think of this song.  i
still get all choked up with forgotten emotion everytime i hear the first few notes on the guitar from this
song!  i remember judging all of my relationships after this man by, "gee, he made me forget about eric for a
whole weekend".  pretty sad, huh?  oh well.  the song is beautiful:)  the music is wonderful.  i could recite
the words out of my head.  of course, i am sure i am far from the only one here who could do that:)

hmmm  another favorite line is from _mystery_
"and i could go crazy on a night like tonight when  summer's beginning to give up her fight and every thought's
a possibility..."  autumn is my favorite season.  the warmth in the daytime followed by the chill at night.
fireplaces start smoking and the last of the years harvest is in.  and you can, after the hustle and bustle and
play of the summer, go crazy in the laziness of fall.  i love this song.  it is perhaps, my favorite.

strange fire has it's soul rending possibilities too.:):)  we won't go into that:)

crazy game:)  that is me:)
"and if you're ever beleive'in, i'm thinkin' of leavin' look to the moo-oon, "cause it's a fact, she may go
wanderin' about, but she always comes shinin' through, and it's true....i'll wait for you..."

life is good:)

blessings and love to you all!
selena

that was a great story kristina, but what i was expecting you to say was,
"let's do that on our list...."  wouldn't that be fun?  i've been around
here since september and i've always taken note of the other artists
people have mentioned, and because of that i have become familiar with the
works of dar williams, catie curtis, kristen hall, shawn colvin and ferron
among others.  now people are starting to ask about other artists and a
tape loop seems just the way to share some of our other favorites with our
friends around the globe....who's with me?

by popular demand (okay, one person's demand (okay, one person's "sure. if you
want to.") :-d), here are a few interesting posts on fugitive from may 1996.

========================================

subject: fugitive

hey y'all... at some point in the past week... it was put forth that we
start up the "song of the day" thread again... only make it "song of the
week"... the song for this 1st week ( starting here... starting now... )
being fugitive.
at places in this song, it sounds as if a is talking about the price payed
by celebrities in the loss of their freedom to just "be" without the eyes of
the public, both friendly and not, upon them.
then i hear/read the lines like: "i'm harboring a fugitive, a defector of a
kind she lives in my soul drinks of my wine and i'd give my last breath to
keep us alive"... etc etc, and i wonder if a is also talking about her "real
self"... the person she is inside. you know... the person you are with all
your hopes + dreams etc. as opposed to the person you become, or present to
those around you, due to outside things that you really have not too much
control over... me... i'm struggling to protect that "real self" of mine
from the day to day stresses that threaten to rob me of her. it would be
like throwing my hands in the air and just giving up, to lose the "real
kim". all joy would be completely sucked from my life if i did that, so, i
fight with tooth + claw to shelter her. i've been thinking a lot about this
sort of thing lately, so i guess that's where i'm coming from. i can't help
but piggy back all my musings + feelings about this onto the lyrics of
fugitive. it's incredible to me that almost every ig song is so open ended
etc. that individuals can bring to them their own interpretation... yeah...
i know other artists do this too... but i rarely listen to other stuff these
days... that's why i'm an ig fan... they basically fill a needful void for
me right now... and they do it so well.
anyway... to those who read this far... thanks for indulging me...
peace + inner peace :- ) kim

i love your interpretation! to extend on it, this song seems to be about trying
to live day-to-day, compromising oneself in all the little ways that reality
forces one to, and in the meantime trying to maintain your own sense of self
-- not letting the way you act in order to satisfy the world's demands change
the person who you really are, deep inside. amy may have written the song
about the compromises she has to make as a "celebrity", but the experience
is universal -- no matter where you go in life, you'll have to do things
which don't mesh with your ideas about who you are, and you'll hear this
little voice inside you saying "this is not what i bargained for".
it's a great song!
kirsten

yes!!!!! thank you kirsten... this is the "rounding it out point" my post
needed... the tie between celebrity + personal life that a may have been
writing about... so that we, even as non-celebrities, can fully relate. love
it... love this list.

from: "tracy weeks & several drooly (but loving) dogs" <clumber9@alliance.net>
subject: fugitive (dull & boring post... but at least it's igc)

        hey all!  i wasn't gonna' offer any 'tracythoughts' on fugitive b/c my
interpretation is so vastly different than those i read some weeks ago... i
figured that i must have just misunderstood.  now, tho, i see that if this is so
-  i am in good company!
        i, too, hear 'she lives in my soul and drinks of my wine, and i'd give
my last breath to keep us alive' as referring to fighting to keep one's 'self'
alive.  a rather long battle (w/ no winner as yet) for me, and most especially
in the past year or so.  this line makes me consider that perhaps that 'real
tracy' is something to try to hang onto... to the last breath, if necessary....
probably a good thing to remember now and again.  certainly not 'what i
bargained for' either -- do y'all remember how easy it seemed as kids
planning who we were gonna' be when we grew up?  somewhere that gets
lost....  i am definitely not emma peel, despite my best childhood
intentions. :-)
         'so hide yourself for me, all for me'  hits me differently depending on
my mood.. sometimes i hear it as 'i have to hide who i am just to survive'..
other times i hear it as being irony...  'hide who i am for me' which would
be opposite to the 1st interpretation, right?  yes, i confuse myself sometimes.
also, in the past few weeks i am interpreting this as coming from the outside
world as a *demand*, and i have to say that i find the offer in return of 'and
i will hide myself for you, all for you' more chilling than reassuring...  i think
perhaps this sums up what  often goes wrong in relationships - whether
romantic, family, or whatever...  i hide who i really am *for* my loved one
(to protect her?  to make her happy?  to keep peace?) and then she may do
the same (for same reasons?) *for me* and pretty soon neither of us know
who we are involved with, nor who we are anymore...  it becomes a cycle
that is hard to break free of.  it becomes so easy to give up yourself... so hard
to remember who you started with, and who you are now.  i would love to
come to the point of 'stood without clothes' (where in tracy's head 'clothes'
refers to the heaping on of other selves, but i may be weird), 'danced in the
sand, i was aching with freedom, kissing the damned' (where 'damned'
would be the 'real tracy' - thus being in a place where i could _accept_
myself) and be able to remind myself to 'remember this as how it should be'
(thus getting a grip on who i really am, and making a pledge to remember
her, and not let go so easily next time).
        just my odd and skewed opinions. in no way am i suggesting this is
where amy was coming from - just what tracy feels in this song.   thanks for
trying to follow along!  don't ya' wish i'd stuck to lurking?!! lol

        this (the fart post) struck me as sort of funny and i happened to
mention it to my roommate.
me:     "this chick (pardon that, i didn't mean to be derogatory) on the ig
list said that amy ray says, 'strange fart' instead of strange fire."

roommate:  "what?"

me:     repeat above ^^

roommate:  "strange fire?"

me:     "no..(laughing)..strange fart"

roommate:  "strange fire?"

selena, i appreciated your comments on your fave ig songs. my favortie song
by them is "mystery," and here is a snip of what you said:


>hmmm  another favorite line is from _mystery_
>"and i could go crazy on a night like tonight when  summer's beginning to
give up her fight and every thought's
>a possibility..."  autumn is my favorite season.  the warmth in the daytime
followed by the chill at night.
>fireplaces start smoking and the last of the years harvest is in.  and you
can, after the hustle and bustle and
>play of the summer, go crazy in the laziness of fall.  i love this song.
it is perhaps, my favorite.

the reason i love this song is that it reminds me of my husband and me. i
knew him in high school and always had a crush on him, but he ignored me,
always just thought of me as willy's (he was friends with my brother) little
sister. the summer after i graduated, though, we started dating and
immediately became inseparable. those lines about summer always bring those
days back! what a magical time that was.

we are opposites in everything from temperament to personal interests,
except for our ideals and goals in life. so i love the last verse:

"maybe that's all that we need
to meet in the middle of impossibilty
standing at opposite poles,
equal partners in a mystery."

our 8th anniversary is on tuesday.

was a toss-up between that and the beacon in nyc on the 27th.

i'm so psyched that patti griffin is playing with shawn.  two of my favorite
performers (besides ig and dar williams, of course <g>) at once.  and on my

anyone else planning on going to the 2/28 show in boston?
