great band, like so many great singers & song writers it's a real shame they die soo soom ! too of my fabvourtie bands: wide variety, but the vocals and both are amazing Many people consider Blind Melon to be the most underated band of the 90's and this is my opinion.
Lead singer Shannon Hoon was the cousin of Axl Rose and appeared on the Guns N' Roses Use Your Illusion albums. Sadly, they are mostly remembered for the "bee girl" and No Rain.
Stop pushing a kid on a swing, and they’ll eventually just sit there. When you try to make something resonate you’re adding up a bunch of these waves (one for every time you “push the swing”), but because of dampening the waves from earlier don’t add as much as the waves from later.
), but most of the time the oscillation frequency starts getting wonky, the wave stops being pretty (not just one frequency), and trying to induce resonance just sorta stops working. Nothing’s perfect so over time every oscillator loses energy.
Pluck a guitar string, and it’ll eventually go mute.
For those of you interested in Shannon Hoon's work try searching "Mouthful of Cavaties"; an older song of theirs recorded with Jenna Kauss. Blind Melon were kind of known as the hippies of the 90's.
This, in my opinion, is one of the best Blind Melon songs ever recorded. I drove Brad Smith to a place to play tennis today. i am the little bee girl, everyone has a little bee girl inside of them. " I just want someone to say to me (ohohohohohh)'I'll always be there when you wake.'" makes me teary and happy. It's really to bad that Shannon Hoon died before his time, alot of good music could have come from this band, this song very much shows signs of roots in music of The Beatles and other origional rock bands.
She said it immediately after the song and meant it. You helped me find my sole mate and the woman I will spend the rest of my life being there when she wakes. It's sad that it ended the way it did, but they left us with some great music and they left me with the best life I could have ever hoped for. These days I hear it on radio more often than I did a few years ago. I think Pavlo would say this was something about a cinditioned response...:)The album version of this song is, in fact, far from their usual material.
We have been married for 19 years and have 3 amazing kids. I get the melancholy vibe of the song and it being about depression and drugs, but I'm sorry this song is more than that, it always makes me feel great and I can't think of many songs that after 20 years I stop and sing along to and still love so much. However, there are more free spirited versions where that you can find if you search "paper scratcher" along with "No Rain".
When you change things by just a bit the response is almost always linear. If this weren’t the case, then physicists would barely be capable of doing any calculations at all.
This is called a “first order approximation” or “linearization”, and it’s really just the statement that things (in a mathematical sense) are smooth. If you don’t stretch it too far it reacts linearly (straight line), but if you stretch it too far then it doesn’t (and eventually gets turned into a straight wire or breaks).
Maybe I'm clueless and it's actually a sad song, but I choose to remain clueless. Tanya-Dallasi relate to this song soo much that it scares me.... i like to think of it as your concsiouse mind sending you hidden messages. my final product never turns out what i origionally was writing about. and you can see that their songs were just as real as there life.
