“Dig Me Out”–Sleater-Kinney’

Sleater-Kinney’s Last Show: 24. Dig Me Out

I am a complete newbie to this band.  My first contact with Carrie Brownstein is Portlandia, so my first impression of her is as an actor and hilarious comedian.  My second impression after hearing the amazing band, Sleater-Kinney, is that she is a bad ass musician.  I guess I am kind of bummed that I slept through this band, but thanks to the SGN I have now seen the light. The band also had rockers, Corin Tucker and Janet Weiss.

“Dig Me Out” is just damn good rock and roll.

English: Carrie Brownstein of the band Sleater...

Dig me out, dig me in
Outta this mess, baby, outta my head
What do you want, what do you know?
One to get started, three till we go
Dig me out, dig me in
Outta this mess, baby, outta my head
Dig me out, dig me in
Outta my body, outta my skin
You got me for now
I’m here for now
What do you want, what do you know?
Do you get nervous makin’ me go?
Get into your sores, get into your things
Do you get nervous watchin’ me bleed?

Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam – Morning Has Broken – [Live 1976]

“Morning Has Broken” is a spiritual poem of sorts (actually a Christian hymn written in 1931).
I really love Cat Stevens’ version of this gospel. The music behind the words is absolutely stunning. Cat Stevens’ voice is also very special. The combination of lyrics, music and voice is truly wonderful. ( From Stacee, CT)

Morning has broken, like the first morning.

Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird.

Praise for the singing, praise for the morning,

Praise for them springing fresh from the Word.

Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlight from heaven.

Like the first dewfall, on the first grass.

Praise for the sweetnes of the wet garden,

Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning.

Born of the one light Eden saw play.

Praise with elation, praise every morning;

God’s recreation of the new day.

Morning has broken, like the first morning.

Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird.

Praise for the singing, praise for the morning,

Praise for them springing fresh from the Word.
