INXS – Pretty Vegas Lyrics 13 years ago
I must say that the choice between J.D and Marty for me was quite easy to make. Evn though marty was an excellent performer, and his song "trees" was much better than pretty vegas, J.D.'s voice is an echo of micheal hutchence's voice. He may bring a new sound to INXS, but he also has to cover all the previous songs in concert. INXS made the right choice. and ill agree with nostrand, week 10 by my side was amazing. Overall though, Suzie MCneil was the best singer there.

Message in the Music
Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir

In 1969, a new music group put out their first CD, not knowing that they would still be releasing merchandise in 2003. A common household name, this group offers an alternative to today’s common pop and rap music. In 1969, the Hindenburg had come to the world of music. Led Zeppelin was born. The song we are about to play is called Kashmir, which was originally released in the album Physical Graffiti in 1975, after six long years of fame and popularity. With such fame comes tour after tour, travelling around the globe performing for millions of fans worldwide. One has to wonder what kind of toll it takes, playing music without rest, not having time to settle down in a place we would call home. We can even imagine that it might creep into a song’s lyrics, venting the desire for rest from the stage of the world. We believe that the lyrics of Kashmir portray that very desire of the group Led Zeppelin, sharing with us their experience of travelling and the need to rest.
The first stanza of lyrics starts to tell us about Zeppelin’s past. “Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream, I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been”. The group tries to compare the distances they’ve travelled across the globe to the vast, infinity of space. They also reinforce that with their reference about stars. Dreams are also vast, and have no limits, the limits of their travels can only be measured by our imagination. “To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen, They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed” we think refers to the people Zeppelin met on their tours. Not the big shot celebrities, but the little people who offer them tidbits of wisdom and information. The word elders referring to the wisdom they have, and the phrase “this world has seldom seen”, refers to the fact that your everyday person isn’t well known compared to the stardom of the group.
The next stanza starts to tell us how monotonous Zeppelin begins to find their career. “Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, whose sounds caress my ear, but not a word I heard could I relate, the story was quite clear”. We think that the song Zeppelin sings about is their own music. They’ve preformed so many concerts, sung the songs so many times that their own lyrics have begun to lose meaning to themselves. It’s like when you repeat a word so many times that you forget what it actually means. They view themselves as simple robots, singing to their fans, but not knowing what they’re singing any more.
The third stanza, while short, also refers to the traveling the group has done. “Oh, I been flying... mama, there ain’t no denyin’, I’ve been flying, ain’t do denyin’, no denyin’”. These two sentences have a basic meaning of traveling, but also can be taken on a literal level. By “Flying”, Zeppelin is telling us about all the plane rides they’ve taken to travel to concert locations.
“All I see turns brown, as the sun burns the ground, and my eyes fill with sand, as I scan this wasted land, trying to find, trying to find where I’ve been”. We think that these phrases describe how Zeppelin felt on tour. Around them, they had no idea where they were, only that they were on tour and had to sing. They couldn’t recognize anything around them, a vast wasteland of no meaning to Zeppelin; they look and try to find their home, where they’ve been before the touring.
“Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace, like thoughts inside a dream.” We think that this signifies how elusive that their home had become for Zeppelin, and how no matter how hard they tried to grasp a chance to go back to a restful lifestyle, it would simply slip through their hand like sand. “Heed the path that led me to that place, yellow desert stream, my Shangri-la beneath the summer moon, I will return again, sure as the dust that floats high and true, when movin’ through Kashmir.” We think that these lines express Zeppelin’s desire for others to not lose grasp of their homes and families. “I will return again”, refers to the fact that after all is said and done, Zeppelin will finally be able to settle down again. The sentence about the dust and Kashmir once again refers to the fact that all the foreign places they had went to were deserts of no meaning to them. Each place they went was just another gig, no longer an interesting place to visit.

“Oh, father of the four winds, fill my sails, across the sea of years, With no provision but an open face, along the straits of fear” This is technically the end of the song, for the next few lines are just “oo’s and ah’s” and things like that. These lines are almost a prayer, asking to be guided through the tough times so that easy times can be found ahead.

In conclusion, our beliefs are that Led Zeppelin wrote this song to symbolize their journey all over the world, rarely seeing home and their families.
