Wes’s Random Weekend Theme – 08/31/12

“Tonight my evening’s pleasure’s in a glass
Black and creamy headed, draining fast
Then you crashed in, all full of questions…”

For an explantion of what I’m doing read this post.

I’m glad this came up, Spirit of the West are my favourite band and any weekend started with them can’t be bad, no matter how much pain my back is in.  “Tell Me What I Think” off their ‘Two Headed’ album is an ode to the dying art of independent thought. It also has a reference to Guinness, which I really wish I had some of right now.

The video itself is a quirky but cool artsy performance piece. It was choreographed around a fixed point camera and filmed in one shot with no edits. I’m glad I found it, the video has been difficult to come by, even in the age of the youtubes.

Lyrics and more after the jump-

I couldn’t find a live performance of this song, since finding even the video itself is a rare treat. So here’s another rare treat, the band performing their cover of the Hunters and Collectors song “Throw Your Arms Around Me”.

Lyrics:

Tell me what I think
You drive, I’ll drink, you drive me
Getting tired, feeling wired
and I’m treading water

Tonight my evening’s pleasure’s in a glass
Black and creamy headed, draining fast
Then you crashed in, all full of questions

Tell me what I think

You drive, I’ll drink, you drive me
Getting tired, feeling wired
and I’m treading water

I’ll tell you this for nothing
Don’t count on me
I never picked a winner
to fill the seat
I’m at a loss
But it’s mine
My own confusion

Tell me what I think

You drive, I’ll drink, you drive me
Tell me, I wish you’d
Tell me

In this room the answer can be found
but I prefer to keep my edges round
Where’s my drink?
And when’s the second coming?

Time to hold my breath and sink I wish you’d
Tell me, I wish you’d
Tell me
