I was tagged by @forever-of-the-stars for this tagging game. Thank you, Edoardo! Very cool. I didn’t know this one. And it’s fun.

1: A song you like with a color in the title:

“Red” - by King Crimson. ‘Nuff said.

2: A song you like with a number in the title:

“1985″ - by Haken. Simply because I still have to get into “Affinity.exe”. I really like this album. But I need to spend more time with it.

3: A song that reminds you of summertime:

"Trains” - by Pocupine Tree. Beautifully melancholic song.

4: A song that reminds you of someone you would rather forget about:

I want to twist that around. Because as I see it, every encounter in life holds an important lesson. And therefore even the not so pleasant people in our lives are ones that we shouldn’t forget.
But this is a song that reminds me of a very special and very important person, a person who is very dear to my heart, and who is always “there”. Even when we don’t see, read, or hear of each other. “The killing moon” by Echo and the Bunnymen (this song is also on the soundtrack of “Donnie Darko”)

5: A song that needs to be played LOUD:

"Teach you how to sing the blues” - by Motörhead. Who am I kidding? EVERY DAMN F***ING MOTÖRHEAD SONG needs to be played LOUD.

6: A song that makes you want to dance:

"I can’t dance” - by Genesis. Just kidding. I can’t dance. I don’t dance. And I don’t want to dance.

7: A song to drive to:

"Anesthetize” - by Porcupine Tree. It’s one of my "running-songs”. Probably also works for driving. 

8: A song about drugs or alcohol:

"Tonight, tonight, tonight” - by Genesis. Fun fact: This is a song about drug and alcohol abuse. And it was used for a beer commercial. Oh, well…

9: A song that makes you happy:

My “happy song” is “Mischief and epiphany” - by Shaolin Death Squad. This song never fails to make me happy. I don’t know why. Brilliant instrumental.

And as a bonus this one: I’ve been listening to EAV (Austrian “comedy-band” who had their biggest success in the 80ies and early 90ies) a lot lately again. And I found this gem. Probably only makes sense to click on this link if you understand German (or Austrian) “God bless America” - by EAV

10: A song that makes you sad:

I’ll pass on this one ;)

Also, @jasonlowder tagged me a million years ago for a selfie. Here it is:

I was always the black Pete of the family

I TAG: THE WHOLE PROG-ROCK FANDOM ON TUMBLR! Because you guys and girls have been pretty lazy lately ;P (feel free to include a selfie or not)
Also: It’s "Selfie Sunday” on @photosworthseeing today

  • English comedies
  • Cream [band] (and other related bands, e.g. Traffic, either way)
  • Food.
  • Fried chicken [Disregard that, it was a mistake I made]

Any help is appreciated! You don’t have to have all of this in your blog. As long as you have one of these, you’re fine. I’ll just check out your blog after you reblog, and then determine if I will follow you. :-)

Home studio rehearsing today; as you know we are recording flute parts to another song on Saturday. We’re playing all day every day so it all goes smooth during the weekend. @ninasivosova is practicing her new solos and in the meantime also warming up with our older material. We didnt play live for a while so its super important to stay on top of it. Here you have a piece of Ace from the first album. See the link in bio for the full song. Oh and don’t forget to check our #Instastories on Saturday for live #studio feed #flute #flutist #flutesolo #rehearsing #ace #progrock #progressiverock #progmetal #preparation #instamusic #homestudio (at Prague, Czech Republic)

A Dream Witihin A Dream - Alan Parsons Project


“For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down in words with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived it.
There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which are not thoughts, and to which as yet I have found it absolutely impossible to adapt to language. These fancies arise in the soul, alas how rarely.
Only at epochs of most intense tranquillity, when the bodily and mental health are in perfection. And at those weird points of time, where the confines of the waking world blend with the world of dreams. And so I captured this fancy, where all that we see, or seem, is but a dream within a dream.”
