Foo Fighters widmen EP den Opfern der Anschläge von Paris und verschenken es

Es war schon länger bekannt, dass die Foo Fighters mit „Saint Cecilia“ heute eine EP zum kostenlosen Download auf ihrer Webseite anbieten werden. Nicht aber, dass diese EP den Opfern der Anschläge von Paris gewidmet sein würde. Dave Grohl dazu:

The Saint Cecilia EP was put into motion back in October of this year as a celebration of life and music. The concept being that, as our world tour drew to a close this week, we wanted to share our love of both with you in return for everything you have given us.

Now, there is a new, hopeful intention that, even in the smallest way, perhaps these songs can bring a little light into this sometimes dark world. To remind us that music is life, and that hope and healing go hand in hand with song. That much can never be taken away.

To all who were affected by the atrocities in Paris, loved ones and friends, our hearts go out to you and your families. We will return and celebrate life and love with you once again someday with our music. As it should be done.

DBD: Something From Nothing – Foo Fighters

Der Song klingt nach Foo Fighters, macht Spass und zeigt was die Herren auf dem Kasten haben: Tolle ruhige Songs, aber auch gute Abgehsongs machen und dies können sie auch einfach miteinander kombiniert. Und deswegen mag ich Foo Fighters, auch wenn der folgende Song vielleicht nicht der stärkste der Band ist. Das Album „Sonic Highways“ kommt am 10. November und bis dahin gibts bestimmt noch ein paar weitere Auskopplungen…

Foo Fighters "Back & Forth" Music Video [HD]

Once upon a time I was somebody else
In another life, I saw myself
Way back then, back when I was you

Somewhere down the line I started to slip
Years gone by, biting my lip
All the while, all this time I knew

Now your on your own, one for the pages
Over the hill and through the ages
Does my heaven burn like hell on you?

Out beneath the cracks and coming in waves
Rolling like an earthquake under the pavement
Heavy now, tell me Mr.Truth

You got a lot of nerve
Now show a little backbone why don’t you

I’m lookin‘ for some back and forth with you
Are you feeling the same as I do now and now and then?
I’m lookin‘ for some back and forth with you
Are you feeling the same as I do?
Down and out

Holding my breath I waited and waited
How’d the simple life get so complicated?
Shoes to fill, secrets to spill down you

Deer in the headlights, spoke in the wheel
You want pretend I need for real
I’m taking it back, all my IOU’s

You got a lot of nerve
Now show a little backbone why don’t you

I’m lookin‘ for some back and forth with you
Are you feeling the same as I do now and now and then?
I’m lookin‘ for some back and forth with you
Are you feeling the same as I do?
Down and out

You got a lot of nerve
Now show a little backbone why don’t you

I’m lookin‘ for some back and forth with you
Are you feeling the same as I do now and now and then?
I’m lookin‘ for some back and forth with you
Are you feeling the same as I do?
Down and out

I’m lookin‘ for some back and forth with you
Are you feeling the same as I do now and now and then?
I’m lookin‘ for some back and forth with you
Are you feeling the same as I do?
Down and out

I’m lookin‘ for some back and forth with you
Are you feeling the same as I do now and now and then?
I’m lookin‘ for some back and forth with you
Are you feeling the same as I do?
Down and out

Foo Fighters - The Pretender

Keep you in the dark you know they all pretend
Keep you in the dark and so it all began

Send in your skeletons
Sing as their bones come marching in again
The need you buried deep
The secrets that you keep are at the ready, are you ready?

I’m finished making sense
Done pleading ignorance that whole defense
Spinning infinity, but the wheel is spinning me
It’s never ending, never ending
Same old story

What if I say I’m not like the others
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays
You’re the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender

What if I say I’m not like the others
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays
You’re the pretender
What if I say that I’ll never surrender

In time or so I’m told
I’m just another soul for sale, oh well
The page is out of print
We are not permanent, we’re temporary, temporary
Same old story

What if I say I’m not like the others
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays
You’re the pretender
What if I say that I’ll never surrender

What if I say I’m not like the others
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays
You’re the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender

I’m the voice inside your head, you refuse to hear
I’m the face that you have to face, mirrored in your stare
I’m what’s left, I’m what’s right, I’m the enemy
I’m the hand that’ll take you down, bring you to your knees

So, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?

Keep you in the dark you know they all pretend

What if I say I’m not like the others
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays
You’re the pretender
What if I say I will never surrender

What if I say I’m not like the others
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays
You’re the pretender
What if I say that I’ll never surrender

What if I say I’m not like the others?
(Keep you in the dark)
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays
(You know they all)
You’re the pretender
(Pretend)
What if I say I will never surrender

What if I say I’m not like the others?
(Keep you in the dark)
What if I say I’m not just another one of your plays
(You know they all)
You’re the pretender
(Pretend)
What if I say I will never surrender

So who are you
Yeah who are you
Yeah who are you!
