Lyrics- U.N.K.L.E. “Every Single Prayer” (Feat. Gavin Clark)

Here we are again. Another U.N.K.L.E. song off of the same album, “Where Did the Night Fall – Another Night Out.” But when you research the lyrics for this song, they too, are incorrect.

Real Lyrics- U.N.K.L.E. “Wash the Love Away” (Feat. Gavin Clark)

I don’t know what it is about the late, great Gavin Clark, but his voice is difficult to discern. His lyrics are simple and his message is powerful, but damn it if the internet collective can’t agree on his lyrics.

So far as I know, U.N.K.L.E. has never released the official lyrics for many of their songs and so, I’m back to decipher Gavin’s haunting vocals once more. Without further adieu, here are the lyrics for “Wash the Love Away:” Continue reading

My mind pushed out tragic thoughts of the house fire and instead continued churning its gleeful slideshow of happy memories set to upbeat pop music. It was like an Aunt who returned from vacation and a shitty house DJ all rolled into one. But every so often, the lingering anxiety would rear its ugly head, penetrating the very stability I had once thought I possessed.

 

Late one night, I began to worry about my throat closing up and sure enough, the feeling returned. I tried to fight it off, knowing that the feeling was likely due to the thought of it, but by then, it was too late.

My Love of Mixtapes

Growing up I used to adore the radio because it would provide me otherwise unattainable access to each song that I loved. I’d painfully wait until it played again just so I could relive the magic of that inner joy when the chorus would hit its crescendo before it would all taken away after the three-four minute song would end. Then, I would have to wait to hear it again for what could be an hour, but felt like a day.

Cassettes

That is, until I was introduced to the wonders of the cassette tape. With my new tool firmly in hand, I would sit by the radio with a more cautioned ear, patiently waiting for the song of the month, (the one I couldn’t stop singing), to play. As soon as I heard the first few notes, I clicked the red dot on my cassette player and it was recording. This was my first taste in the art of mixtapes. Continue reading
