All Falls Down - Kanye West
It seems we living the American dream/ but the people highest up got the lowest self esteem
This is like the eighth time i’ve posted this but this will forever be one of my favorite Yeezy songs
Stuck on this.
for real though. and let me tell you why:
this was a reimagining of amy’s beloved song, and while it may have come too soon after her passing, jay-z sure as fuck captured and updated the basic polyrhythmic, swung-note pace of 1920’s trombone player charlie green by covering this song.
back to black seems to pay homage to the mentality and musical agility of ragtime jazz à la bessie smith’s “trombone cholly” — while charlie accompanies her on the trombone.
amy loved jazz. she was all ABOUT jazz. she was jazz.
i think that even though this rendition won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, she would have given a couple fucks about the process behind the reconstruction of the song and its context within the album.

my good friend lorn had this ridiculous/fantastic idea to mix together “No Church in the Wild” and “Clint Eastwood” so i did it and you can listen to that now and it’s called
Jay-Z & Kanye West vs. Gorillaz - No Clint in the Eastwood

what the fuck, this is incredible.
Holy shit this is amazing.

Say Anything- I Want To Know Your Plans
I want to know your plans and how involved in them I am.
When I go to sleep for good will I be forgiven?
And If you want roses you can go buy a bouquet.
If that just won’t cut it, well what can I say?
You’re what keeps me believing the world’s not gone dead,
Strength in my bones put the words in my head.
When they pour out to paper, it’s all for you.
‘Cause that’s what you do. That’s what you do.
And it is true what you said
That I live like a hermit in my own head,
but when the sun shines again
I’ll pull the curtains and blinds to let the light in.

When I wake up I’m afraid, somebody else might take my place…
this is my kingdom come, this is my kingdom come

The Helio Sequence — Lately
I never lay awake at night staring in my bed
And I don’t think about your face or anything you’ve said
And I don’t think twice when someone says your name
Or twist my mind in circles wondering which of us to blame
