Oh Lord
When your heart beats within mine
Oh mine
Am I in any way divine?
Or still twisted and unkind?
And low down
In the misty gorges of time
Well oh Lord
When your heart beats within mine
No I never ever want this thing to pass
One should never fall in love with things that last
Last only for a day
And they'll stay with you for another day

Well oh Lord
When your heart beats within mine
Oh mine
Am I in any way divine?
Or still twisted and unkind?
Oh no I never ever want this thing to pass
One should never fall in love with things that last
Last only for a day
And they'll stay with you for another day

Well I can hear your heart beat
As we are lifted off the ground
It's all around
Oh no I never ever want this thing to pass
One should never fall in love with things that last
Last only for a day
And they'll stay with you for another day
No no I never ever want this thing to pass
One should never fall in love with things that last
Last only for a day
And they'll stay with you for another day

Dognabit.  Ruined another one for ever....
Dang I love this guy's voice. Just so rich and velvety.
This reminds so much of "Lost in the dream" by The War On Drugs.
Another band/artist I had never heard of until RP.  Beautiful.  
Album title checks out.

Bloomington-Normal - that reminds me. I live in the Chicago burbs and would make plenty of drives to either central Illinois for work or to St.Louis or central MO for pleasure. I would make a special effort nearly every time to stop in B-N to eat at Schlotzsky's Deli; I loved their sandwiches & pizzas, but they closed all the stores locally, so this is basically my best shot to get their food. Seeing your comment here got me to look them up on Google ... and it looks like they shut down that location. Now I'm slightly depressed.

Good GOSH Madrugada is some good stuff.  If this song lights you up in any way, take a listen to "Lift Me" with Madrugada + Ane Brun. <3

Spot on, I am constantly amazed that people come up this kind of shit on RP. Rickman one of my favourite actors too. Another reason that I too love RP

What a nice natural voice.
This is really nice. The voice, to me, has a bit of Roy Orbison in it. Right?

I really enjoy his voice.

In the spirit of Madrugada there is a very odd rock festival far out in the Arctic Atlantic Ocean every July. I recommend it for you all, but the island is small and there is just a few tickets to buy every summer.  Some of the conserts is held in a cave where people lived thousends year ago.

  WOW!  Thanks, beerbear - and July is coming up fast.  I love the odd venues for concerts. Somehow, it makes them more intimate and fun, like a big secret from the rest of the world.  I'm glad you shared this. {#Daisy}


The instrumentals here sound so much like Eno's Apollo.  Kudos.  They did so well with this.  I LOVE IT!!

not bad...but definitely different than Madrugada.  It's a real shame what happened to Buras....Madrugada was great.

I ALWAYS buy CDs when they are available. Yeah, it's a bit inconvenient to wait for it but in addition to it working in CD players you can rip it to FLAC and enjoy that tasty audio goodness anywhere. It really doesn't compare to the MP3s you can get off Amazon etc; really no comparison at all. Once you've heard FLAC....

Plus while album art isn't what it used to be, it's not going to get any better from buying a digital copy. If an artist just produces one song "i like" I don't spend the money because really do they have the talent? On the other hand, with a CD I usually end up liking several songs more than whatever drew me to the artist in the first place. Beauty is fleeting but talent must be savored.

Hmmmm...reminds me of Spinal Tap's Rock 'N' Roll Creation:

No, I just don't like them. Maybe it's that guy's voice. Over-modulated, over-controlled. I don't trust it.
Nice to hear some more madrugada!  Because of my spanish lessons, now I know, what " Madrugada" means.

But only if you still had all your front teeth.  If they're missing, then the th sound morphs into an f.  Somewhat related: we know that the toothbrush was invented in Arkansas.  Anywhere else and it would have been called a teethbrush.

(it just hit me, like a revelation...either that, or I meant to rate it higher before, it is Sunday, maybe that has something to do with it)


That voice reminds me of my lost love.  You know who you are.

I really like the two tracks from this album that Bill plays. Anyone have the entire album and care to report? Is the rest of it any good?


 

It's an excellent album.  I love it from start to finish.  If you like this, you might also want to check out their last album, just titled "Madrugada."
no comment  -   7.

I found Madrugada one month ago and they are just great. You must listen to other songs. Group from {#War}, deserve pure 10.


I think the lead singer sounds a lot like Alan Rickman.  I like the shimmering guitar in this song.

I don't find the albums as uniformally strong as let's say Van Morrison's material or R.E.M.'s material.

But this Norwegian band and Sweden's Opeth must have some of the most gorgeous male voices in contemporary western rock music.

Yes! Check out their other stuff. You'd probably really like it.

Not my favourite Madrugada but it is slowly growing on me.


That voice.


I really like the continuation of the Divine theme, there, Bill-san...
Something about his voice reminds me a little of Burl Ives. (I know, shut up)
Never heard the original and it appears that I have highly rated another Madrugada selection. 9 - Excellent! Must ... get ... more!!!

Wow, that other song of theirs ("Hard To Come Back" I think) sounds soooo much different than this. That one sounds like Franz Ferdinand. I like this better, though that one's cool too.
I like this better too, more in the style of "Majesty" smoothly soothing :kiss:
Reminds me of Tindersticks, or Cousteau. Any chance of playing anything by those 2 bands? Pretty please...!

I don't know why, but I always think this song is going to build into Sweet Caroline. Crazy, I know.

Better see a cardiologist about that. As quickly as possible, I think; really doesn't sound healthy
:confused: I went into a Borders the day after Robert Burås died and asked for Madrugada, and got such a blank stare from the clerk...:eh:

Funny thing, but perhaps the last comment was an innocent American thing to say. It all depends where you learn your English and the pronunciation that goes along with the instruction. Some 20,000 Spanish go to Ireland every year to learn English. They all end up with a Dublin 4 accent. Many Germans as well.
