mood: disappointed
music: Nico - "No One Is There"
posted by: x_id_x in secret_side

Nico seems to have brought the poet in me to life again. See what you think.

Casting off her velvet shroud
To wander alone
Her head held high and dark and proud
To all but the strangest unknown.
Reaching back to her roots,
In a desolate garden of sound
Casting a bitter eye on the happy trill of flutes,
And the beauty to which she is bound.

Finding melody on a plane
Beyond the reach of common thought
Crossing the borderline into insane
But who’s to judge if one has cracked or not?

Emotions that are rarely glimpsed by the world
Hidden beneath shadowy eyes
A phone call, and all her ambition uncurled,
Left in a bedroom to sigh.

But her organ pounds irresistibly on
Her heart on an empty stage
Her friends and lovers come and gone
Her music anything but an empty page.


Finally, a general query for the masses...Any recommendations as to where one should start with Nico's live recordings?

"chelsea girl live" is really stellar, but my favorite version of 'secret side' comes off of "do or die"
