  • Burt Bacharach bashes Bush

    You know things are bad when this dude's piling on.


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    Dr. Dre, Elvis Costello join Bacharach protest album
    30 Sep 2005
    The songwriting legend to release a new album, "At This Time", Nov. 1.

    Legendary songwriter Burt Bacharach has "things he needs to say"; this time around though it seems love wont do, with a salvo aimed directly at the Bush administration with his new protest album "At This Time".

    Set for release through Columbia Records on November 1, the new set features a host of major guest stars, as well as a 25-piece backing orchestra. It's also the first time Bacharach has written lyrics to his music.

    "People ask why a man who has been known for writing love songs all of his life is suddenly rocking the boat," Bacharach says. "I had to do it. This is very personal to me, and this is the most passionate album I have ever made.

    Joining the Grammy winning artist is Dr. Dre, with whom Bacharach began working with several years ago. The hip-hop producer drops beats on three of the album's tracks. Costello performs "Who Are These People," describes as one of the album's most adventurous tracks; "Who are these people that keep telling us lies?/And how did these people get control of our lives?/And who'll stop the violence 'cause it's out of control/Make 'em stop," Costello sings. Meanwhile, Rufus Wainwright pops up to add vocals on "Go Ask Shakespeare," which includes the lyrics, "I've been hoping for a better day/It's a long time coming but I wait anyway/Life's a miracle or a foolish tale/I don't know/Go ask Shakespeare."

    "I had to express myself, not only musically but lyrically. It was time for me to ask, 'who are these people who are taking control of our lives and how do we stop the violence?," adds Bacharach. "I've got two little kids and a 19-year-old son and I wonder what they're going to do with their lives. It's so personal to me that I even decided to do some of the singing. This is dedicated to my kids and your kids."

    Andrew Hale, from the band Sade, who oversaw the A&R for the album, concludes: "It would have been easy to ask Burt to make another record that rested on his laurels, but here he's speaking from the heart. He's pissed at the administration, concerned about the world he is leaving to his children, and you can feel it."

    The UK release date is October 24th, with the album coming out a week later across North America.
    But wait. There is something that can be done afterall. My good friend Angelo is a cop in the Tampa/Clearwater area. Since I kept all of the files from the access logs when I had the power to see them, guess what, I have everyone's IP addresses. Hmm..what can I do w/ those??

            Sad to say, I've thought about six feet worth of earth had been piled onto good old Burt.

              I used to listen to NWA back in the day. I loved 'The Chronic' when it came out. I still remember when I bought it. I got it in the Columbia (MO) Mall the day it came out. The next day I went on an AAU basketball trip and all of the guys on the team wanted to listen to it. I think I was in 7th or 8th grade. All I listened to was rap. You name it (from the late 80's through about 1996), I listened to it. I fucking loved Ice Cube. Eazy-E was my dawg too. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif[/img]

              Dre seems like a cool dude. I'd like to chill with him. I just can't get into rap at all anymore. I have friends who still listen to it and it doesn't bother (for the first 30 or so minutes [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img] ). I'm not sure what my problem is, but I just can't "jam" to it like I used to. I'd rather have my Pearl Jam, Neil Young, The Doors, DMB, Coldplay, etc.

              Rap just doesn't do it for me "no mo". [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img]

                    "F" and ,

                    Sounds like you guys matured beyond c(rap) music.

                    IMO, it's mindless muttering.
