Thought I had posted this before. Willie Nelson covers the Coldplay hit "The Scientist". Superior to the original imo. The Miley Cyrus version is second best. Plus "Just Breath"

Meets with typical humorous and indignation in equal amounts! I like it, but won't be doing it !! :lol:

Would have been better in the Sports section Gonzo or Mods ?

I thought about putting the video into the sports section, but the Kiwis are really mad about the Hakarena thingo. They say the Haka is a really important cultural thing for them. :whistling:

For those tapping into Sky Sports TV there has recently been an excellent advert for Skybet with a really "good and dirty" bass loop going on in the background. This is it....Not my favourite artist and future president of the USA, but the track.......I likee velly much!!!!! :o

On the Hakka.....

 

I got into a conversation about it with a Maori ex-rugby player..........We didn't get on well but our girlfriends were mates so we tolerated each other.

 

The conversation began along the lines of.........The hakka's fine but that i didn't like conditions being placed upon the opposing team, in what seems to me at least a thinly veiled attempt to gain a psychological advantage. The opposition must respect....they must watch or they are considered disrespectful..........etc.

 

He answered with, well do your own hakka.......

I said, 'No do whatever you want to do.........But don't set conditions on the team opposite. If Campese wants to practice goal-kicks at his end why not?

 

Campese was being rude according to the Maori chapter of De'bretts. And he went into one..Cursing Campese and saying what he'd do to him if their paths ever crossed.

 

Never one to resist pouring oil onto a fire I said........"In any case it's a maori tradition and they do it well.......But the non-Maoris just look like idiots!!"

 

Thankfully the girls calmed things down before my head was torn from my shoulders........

But and here's the point.......He said later to his GF That I was racist.

 

At the time I couldn't see it..... I think now he was probably right........

 

But I still think Maori authentic.......White guys a corny pastiche ..... when I watch the Hakka......

 

 

Opps thought I was in the Rugby thread.........

So to make amends..........Good er ........song

I used to see this fellow at numerous concerts back in late 60s/early 70s. He seemed to be the opening act to 2-3 other major bands for what seemed like every other concert I went to! One of the best exponents at "electifying" the acoustic guitar. RIP.

^^ Saw him loads as well. Recall he always came on stage with a joint and passed it to the first person he saw when he came on stage.

I was in Penzance one year on holiday and found out he was playing so went to the gig and got in position and yes I got the joint :bhappy

Personally, I just love doing the horizontal haka; it gives my tongue some real exercise.

As an apology for posting a Kanye West track earlier :ninja: Here is one or a medley by the brilliant Dick Dale. 78 years old now, and still kicking up a storm on stage, despite pretty crippling cancer. This one is his "tribute" to Jimi Hendrix who in a sort of 360 degree way was very much influenced by Dick. :hippie: I cannot recommend his live concerts highly enough :thumbup, but doubt he will tour outside of the States any more. Upcoming gigs are in California and Vegas.
