Playing Music Is Like Making Love

PLAYING MUSIC IS LIKE MAKING LOVE

Many people who insist that they enjoy
music known as classical merely say
they do, pretending. Far more serious is the ploy
planned by LSO, who'll just pretend to play.

There is surely nothing wrong with those who fake
enjoyment, like a woman faking an orgasm,
but pretense of playing music's a mistake,
since music needs not only sound, but ectoplasm.

Orchestras and lovemakers should never mimic:
they should always show their skin when they perform,
and should not be, although poetic, metonymic:
the use of any substitute is rotten form.

Denis Bartel reported the news about the London Symphony Orchestra's decision to mimic their playing while a performance is broadcast to visits at the Olympic Games. David Ng writes in the LA Times:
Musicians with the London Symphony Orchestra are reportedly going to have to pull a Milli Vanilli when they appear at the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympic Games in London. Reports from Britain state that the orchestra will mimic playing to prerecorded music due to concerns about the weather and the shape of the performing venue - a large, oval-shaped arena whose scale would apparently make a live-music performance tricky….
The London Symphony has reportedly recorded the music that is scheduled to be played during the July 27 ceremony. The Daily Mail reports that Boyle wanted the orchestra to perform live, but that he was overruled by the organizing committee for the Games. When viewers around the world tune in for the ceremony, they can expect to see the conductor and musicians from the renowned orchestra going through the motions while a soundtrack plays.
This wouldn't be the first time that the mimicking of live music was used at an Olympics ceremony. In 2008, a mini-controversy developed during the Beijing Games when it was revealed that a 9-year-old singer lip-synced to the voice of another young girl whom officials had deemed less telegenic. Similarly, at President Obama's inauguration, the musical performance by cellist Yo-Yo Ma, violinistItzhak Perlman, pianist Gabriella Montero and clarinetist Anthony McGill played, unamplified, to a recording. The decision to use a recording was made over fears that the cold weather that day could damage the instruments.

Feel Like Making Love

Take my hand
Lead me to another place
I never been
I wanna be released
Set me free
I'm not talking bout letting me go
But I'm just talking bout pulling me close
To where our bodies are becoming as one
Turn off the lights cause boy we've just begun
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
Here I am
I'm all yours for tonight
But every night
It could be
You and I
For a lifetime
Could have stayed all to myself
And played the game like everybody else
But boy I want you and that's no lie
Because you keep me so satisfied
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
It would be nice if you spend the night
Ain't nothing wrong if you treat me right
Why don't we take it nice and slow
Hold on tight baby don't let go
It would be nice if you spend the night
Ain't nothing wrong if you treat me right
Why don't we take it nice and slow
Hold on tight baby don't let go
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
Feel like making love
All through the night
All through the night
Come hold me tight
It would be nice if you spend the night
Ain't nothing wrong if you treat me right
Why don't we take it nice and slow
Hold on tight baby don't let go
It would be nice if you spend the night
Ain't nothing wrong if you treat me right
Why don't we take it nice and slow
Hold on tight baby don't let go
[Chorus till fade]

He Dont Love You Like I Love You

He dont love you like I love you
Dont think about you like I think about you
He dont want to have your children
He dont wanna build his life around you
Tell me I should not be feeling what I am today
Tell me to silence my heart
Tell me weve been here before
And I will walk away from you love
For there is a wall between you and i
And he hasnt been treating you right
Ive been watching it all
I seen you cry
And I just gotta tell you tonight
That he dont love you like I love you
Dont think about you like I think about you
He dont want to have your children
He dont wanna build his life around you
Tell me this loves just a feeling and will pass away
Tell me your not what I know you are

Like I Love You

Why do lovers drift apart
How does love fade away
When do pieces of a broken heart mend again
Youve been crying in the dark
And youve been feeling alone
Dont be scared of what youll find
When you turn the light on
Aint nobody gonna say goodbye
Aint nobody gonna walk away
This time, baby, Im learning how to love you, love you
Aint nobody gonna make you cry
Aint nobody ever really tried to love
Like I love you
What sad memory of yesterday
What terrible scar
Keeps you gathering pieces of
Your shattered heart
There was once upon a time
When hope was living within
I know there will come a time
When you can believe again
(chorus)
How long have you been feeling lost and lonely
How long have you been sad and blue
This time, baby, Im learning how to love you, love you
Aint nobody gonna make you cry
Aint nobody ever really tried to love
Like I love you
This time, baby, Im learning how to love you, love you
Let me love you, like I love you

Someone Like My Niece

at the party i chance to sit next to her
on a white covered sofa
we are so careful not to stain it
watching the food that we fork
the orange juice that we drink from a shiny glass
no drops please
her mother warns, she's is my sister
too concerned about her furniture

she likes her hair long and falling
like herself i suppose falling into a
certain despair, her mother, unable to
accept, she pretends she is more concerned
about the fate of her new rosewood
furniture

' i do not like myself' she whispers to
her glass half filled with tequila,
she sets aside the orange juice
too mild, she quips,

' i like to run away from her' she
insists, telling me that no one understands her here
that this house is full of indifferent people

i fix my gaze at the TV pretending i am not interested.
there is this soap opera about a mom who just lost
her son to a war somewhere in Jolo.

how can a mother's love be so misunderstood?
the mother knows how to pretend, and the daughter
drowns herself inside the bubbles of a glass wine

tequila, i am sure about that..

' i like the love story most. The brother takes his brother's girlfriend
and he punishes himself at the end. Tears and death.'
I am evading
her leading questions.

she's groggy. She leaves me and says she is sleepy. She goes to her
room and locks the door.

Then i tell myself, this world is fair. I am lucky not to have someone
like that niece. I am alone but not sad. Anyway,

the soap opera ends. Something new crops up tomorrow.
A twist of fate. But i will not watch anymore.I had enough.

It is like new love for life

It’s like new love for life
are in your golden eyes
and I see happiness
burning in them
and your hand
that is soft in mine
is icy cold,
but love is busy
to get life anew
and your heart is open
and you kiss better
than I can remember.

Let us be like rivers, Love

The Table shall never meet the Fuji again
Let us be like rivers, Love
Great rivers, not mountains!
On their epic journey to grace
The Land of the gods with much needed hope
Where an arid desert is the ‘mirror of heaven’
Great rivers run from a Great Lake
Ignorant of borders, boundaries or nationalities
They run
But no matter how long or how apart they grow
Great rivers are sure to become one sometime
At the edge of some distant sea

Much Like the Naturalness of Making Love

How often do I write?

Daily...
Day and night.

Where do I get such an appetite.

It has been with me most of my life.
It is something love,
Much more than a choice...
Between things I 'like'.

It is a craving I can't explain.
Done for so long...
It is something I do that belongs.

Much like the naturalness of making love!
But when I write,
There is a stimulation that remains.
With an excitement...
I can without climax,
Sustain for hours and prolong!

My thoughts like my love is forever lost

My thoughts like my love is forever lost
Not in me but she, the price love cost
Our energy, or beauty, all that we create
Turns on us and weaves our fate
Reverent thyself and in reverence keep
The love for thee and think of me
For my love my thoughts and love are in you
And appears it cannot break through
So use them to be and do break free
From the cold frost from thy indifferent air
And thy cold stare, frozen bare
Which freezes my thought and my love
And in you, I bid adieu

Love Me Like I Love Everything I Do

Love me like I love bathing under the glorious sun
Love me like I love dreaming inside of heaven’s arm
Love me like I love crying in the mourning rain
Love me like I love sitting on top of a mountain
Love me like I love waiting next to forever in vain
Love me like I love grinning to the devil’s pain
Love me like I love watching the stars falling upon
Love me like I love spending time on my own

Love me like I love finding something true
Love me like I love falling in love with you

Cos You Like To Love Me

I feel that's something's right
You don't like holding me tight
What's wrong with me
I don't know
Maybe it's time I should go
But just as I get to the door
You look at me and say no
Come and be good to me
come and make love to me
Stay Stay
'Cos you like to love me
And just me and nobody else
And I like to love you
And just you and nobody else
We should get out more I know
But we're just too lazy to go
What's outside that's not in here
Nothing's so good that's so near

Face

When I see your
Dimpled smile :)
Twinkling* eyes
Glistening grin!
Naughty wink ;)
And the stubbled chin
Of a day old shave.

I feel like making love
To your Adonis Face
With kisses and caresses.

Tracing you with my
Touches...through the
Ruffles of your hair
The contours of your
Visage ~ to the
Curls on your nape
Down the deep trenches
Of your tempting throat.

What?

Not Satiated?

Want a bit more?

But remember,
It was all about
Making love to your Face!

OK.

A little low down.

Let me see ;)
What I can do
With my hands
And mouth:
On those Tips
Of your
Matted Chest.
