What Child Is This (by the Vince Guaraldi Trio) 
This song makes me feel so good inside. It's the kind of song you play on a cold night, nestled under a blanket in a chair while sipping hot cocoa (with Marshmellows if you have them). I love the way the piano flows up and...
Lionsgate releases the John Wick 4 Trailer! 
The High Table would like a word with John Wick. I'm surprised there's anyone left to fight, but on hand, we have Natalia Tena (Game of Thrones), Bill Skarsgard (Barbarian), Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine), Scott Adkins (Accident Man), Clancy Brown (Thor: Ragnarok) and the legendary...

Lucretia My Reflection (by The Sisters of Mercy) 

Lucretia My Reflection (off the Floodland album) is another Sisters of Mercy song that I enjoy. It was supposedly written by lead singer Andrew Eldritch for Patricia Morrison, the bassist of the group. The version below is a twelve minute mix that’s more instrumental than vocal. I’ve let this play as background music while writing.

Lyrics:

I hear the roar of a big machine
Two worlds and in between
Hot metal and methedrine
I hear empire down
I hear empire down

I hear the roar of a big machine
Two worlds and in between
Love lost, fire at will
Dum-dum bullets and shoot to kill
I hear dive bombers and
Empire down
Empire down

I hear the sons of the city and dispossessed
Get down, get undressed
Get pretty but you and me
We got the kingdom, we got the key
We got the empire, now as then
We don’t doubt, we don’t take direction
Lucretia, my reflection, dance the ghost with me

We look hard
We look through
We look hard to see for real

Such things I hear, they don’t make sense
I don’t see much evidence
I don’t feel
I don’t feel
But I don’t feel

A long train held up by page on page
A hard reign held up by rage
Once a railroad
Now it’s done

I hear the roar of a big machine
Two worlds and in between
Hot metal and methedrine
I hear empire down

We got the empire, now as then
We don’t doubt, we don’t take reflection
Lucretia, my direction, dance the ghost with me
