    Fedez ~ Magnifico
    Feat. Francesca Michielin





    Fedez is a 25 year old Italian pop rapper and Francesca Michielin is a 19 year old Italian song-writer/singer. Together they sing the rap love-song Magnifico. The song is sung in Italian and loaded with Italian Hotties.............. just sayin'. Even though I could give a shit what Fedez is saying, I posted Magnifico naturally for the Hotties and because Francesca's chorus seems sexy & melodious:

    Anche se poi tutto è magnifico,
    (Even if then everything is magnificent,)

    non lo prenderò come un rimprovero.
    (I won't take it as an insult.)

    E' possibile abbia sogni sbagliati, un po' illusi al momento.
    (It's possible we have dreams, mistakes, we're a bit lost in the moment.)

    Mi appartengono.
    (They belong to me.)

    AUDIOSLAVE ~ Show Me How To Live






    Vanishing Point - A cult movie classic. Vietnam War hero Kowalski (Barry Newman) has become a pill-addicted driver for hire. Transporting a white 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T 440 4-speed from Colorado to California, he enlivens the journey by making a wager with his drug dealer: If the trip takes under 15 hours, Kowalski's latest amphetamine purchase is free. But Kowalski's recklessness on the road results in a much-publicized police chase. Radio jock Super Soul (Cleavon Little) covers the pursuit and turns Kowalski, who refuses to pull over, into a martyr for freedom.

    Being mistaken as an unruly Stones fan, Anthony Kiedis, lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, is attacked by body guards at the Four Season Hotel in Philadelphia where the Rolling Stones were staying.

    50-year-old Kiedis was walking hand-in-hand with a woman toward the Four Seasons before a black-suited guard approached the couple. As Kiedis walked toward the front door, the guard extended both hands and tried to stop him — and then quickly dove at the singer’s legs. Kiedis wound up in a brief headlock before things were sorted out.

    “That’s the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers,” shouts one stunned onlooker as the scuffle began.

    Kiedis’ explanation fell on deaf ears: “I live here!”

    The California rocker emerged from his scrape with no additional scar tissue — and shook hands with the security guard before walking into the hotel.

    Percy Sledge


    November 25, 1941 ~ April 14, 2015


    When a Man Loves a Woman




    Before he became famous, Percy Sledge worked in the cotton fields around his hometown of Leighton in northwest Alabama and took a job in a hospital in nearby Sheffield. He also spent weekends playing with a rhythm-and-blues band called the Esquires. A hospital patient heard him singing while working and recommended him to record producer Quin Ivy.

    In the 2013 documentary "Muscle Shoals," Sledge recalled recording the song: "When I came into the studio, I was shaking like a leaf. I was scared." He added that it was the "same melody that I sang when I was out in the fields."

    "I just wailed out in the woods and let the echo come back to me."

    Sledge said the song was inspired by a girlfriend who left him for a modeling career after he was laid off from a construction job in 1965. But in a decision that likely cost him a fortune, he gave the songwriting credits to two Esquires bandmates, bassist Calvin Lewis and organist Andrew Wright, who helped him with "When a Man Loves a Woman."

    Deep Purple ~ Smoke on the Water






    "Smoke on the Water" was first released by Deep Purple on their 1972 album Machine Head. In 2004, the song was ranked number 434 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time, ranked number 4 in Total Guitar magazine's Greatest Guitar Riffs Ever and in March 2005, Q magazine placed "Smoke on the Water" at number 12 in its list of the 100 greatest guitar tracks.

    The lyrics of the song tell a true story:

    4 December 1971, Deep Purple was in Montreux, Switzerland, where they had set up camp to record an album using a mobile recording studio. The studio was rented from the Rolling Stones and known as the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio—referred to as the "Rolling truck Stones thing" and "a mobile" in the song lyrics. The band was set to record at the entertainment complex that was part of the Montreux Casino referred to as "the gambling house" in the song lyrics. On the eve of the recording session, a Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention concert was held in the casino's theater. At the beginning of Don Preston's synthesizer solo on "King Kong," the casino complex suddenly caught fire when somebody in the audience fired a flare gun into the rattan covered ceiling, as mentioned in the "some stupid with a flare gun" line. The resulting fire destroyed the entire complex with all the Mothers' equipment.

    The title of the song, "Smoke on the Water," is credited to bass guitarist Roger Glover, who related how the title occurred to him when he awoke from a dream a few days later. Glover's dream focused on the smoke from the fire spreading over Lake Geneva from the burning casino as the members of Deep Purple watched the fire from their hotel. The "Funky Claude" running in and out is referring to Claude Nobs, the director of the Montreux Jazz Festival, who helped some of the audience escape the fire.





    Montreux Jazz Festival Founder Claude Nobs


    Left with an expensive mobile recording unit and no place to record, the band was forced to scout Montreux for another place to set up. One promising venue (found by Nobs) was a local theater called "The Pavilio." Soon after the band started working/recording, the nearby neighbors took offence to the noise. The band was only able to lay down backing tracks for one song (based on Blackmore's riff and temporarily named "Title n°1") before the local police shut them down.

    After a week of searching, the band rented the nearly-empty Montreux Grand Hotel. Its hallways and stairwells were made into a makeshift recording studio where they laid down most of the tracks of what would become their most commercially successful album, Machine Head (which is dedicated to Claude Nobs).

    The only song from Machine Head not recorded entirely in the Grand Hotel was "Smoke on the Water" which had been partially recorded during the abortive Pavilion session. The lyrics of "Smoke on the Water" were composed later, and the vocals were recorded in the Grand Hotel.

    The song is honored in Montreux by a sculpture along the lake shore (right next to the statue of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury) with the band's name, the song title, and the riff in musical notes.

    On the Classic Albums series episode about Machine Head, Ritchie Blackmore claimed that friends of the band were not fans of the classic "Smoke on the Water" riff because they thought it was too simplistic. Blackmore retaliated by making comparisons to the first movement of Beethoven's 5th Symphony which revolves around a similar four note arrangement—and is arguably the most famous piece of music in the world.
