its fall so starting with emo song done right
SpoilerShow
imo
it has been coming to my mind and feels about 200 times the past week
surprisingly underrated/overlooked



here are the lyrics (which are suit the music very well:

"It's raining on me, I don't want it to stop
I don't want to breathe, anymore

[Verse]
I want soggy ground, I want to feel my feet in the sand
I want water to rise and to cover all the land
I want to swim until my arms give out and I come to an end
I hope it happens soon, I can't deal with feeling this bad
Oooh

[Bridge]
I want to be cold
And I want it to snow so bad

[Outro]
I hope your flames don't grow
I want to be buried in snow
I hope your flames don't grow
I just want to be cold
I don't want you to know"

Linda Perhacs - Chimacum Rain

Beautiful Hypnagogic / Psychedelic folk
'Parallelograms is an album by American psychedelic folk singer Linda Perhacs. Her first and, until the release of The Soul of All Natural Things in 2014, only album, it was all but completely ignored when originally released on Kapp Records in 1970. Discouraged by the lack of commercial attention and the label's reluctance to promote the album, Perhacs returned to her career as a dental technician. In the 30 or so years that followed, the album gradually developed a cult following.

The song which gave name to the album is probably my favourite; discovered it so many years ago and haven't listened to it in a long time..






Great thread, will be following it with interest. :)

Linda Perhacs is 4th on my current folk/country wishlist, so I'm gonna skip those and hear them on the album.
Btw she released her 2nd after 44 years.

Another poetic goddes psych folk with echoey moments too
Leonard Cohen cover

Buffy Sainte-Marie - God is Alive, Magick is Afoot
God is alive; Magic is afoot
God is alive; Magic is afoot
God is afoot; Magic is alive
Alive is afoot.....
Magic never died.
God never sickened;
Many poor men lied
Many sick men lied
Magic never weakened
Magic never hid
Magic always ruled
God is afoot
God never died.
God was ruler
Though his funeral lengthened
Though his mourners thickened
Magic never fled
Though his shrouds were hoisted
The naked God did live
Though his words were twisted
The naked Magic thrived
Though his death was published
Round and round the world
The heart did not believe
Many hurt men wondered
Many struck men bled
Magic never faltered
Magic always led.
Many stones were rolled
But God would not lie down
Many wild men lied
Many fat men listened
Though they offered stones
Magic still was fed
Though they locked their coffers
God was always served.
Magic is afoot. God rules.
Alive is afoot. Alive is in command.
Many weak men hungered
Many strong men thrived
Though they boasted solitude
God was at their side
Nor the dreamer in his cell
Nor the captain on the hill
Magic is alive
Though his death was pardoned
Round and round the world
The heart did not believe.
Though laws were carved in marble
They could not shelter men
Though altars built in parliaments
They could not order men
Police arrested Magic
And Magic went with them,
For Magic loves the hungry.
But Magic would not tarry
It moves from arm to arm
It would not stay with them
Magic is afoot
It cannot come to harm
It rests in an empty palm
It spawns in an empty mind
But Magic is no instrument
Magic is the end.
Many men drove Magic
But Magic stayed behind
Many strong men lied
They only passed through Magic
And out the other side
Many weak men lied
They came to God in secret
And though they left him nourished
They would not say who healed
Though mountains danced before them
They said that God was dead
Though his shrouds were hoisted
The naked God did live
This I mean to whisper to my mind
This I mean to laugh with in my mind
This I mean my mind to serve 'til
Service is but Magic
Moving through the world
And mind itself is Magic
Coursing through the flesh
And flesh itself is Magic
Dancing on a clock
And time itself the magic length of God.

Turkish (anatolian?) Psychedelic Folk Rock


Flaked
Flaked snow falls upon the poor
Why the faith is not taking the poor's word
We've starved to death, come now sir please

Some are member of the parliment, some are governer, it's forbidden for us to get educated
I can't stand your fake pose anymore
We're doomed, education to us, roads to us, life to us,
Come now sir, please, please, please, please, please please...

Why is it so hard to build new roads,
To build schools, to restore life
please, please, please, please please...

Why isn't Urfa like your Istanbul?*
Poor Maraş, dry Urfa, what about Diyarbakır?
We're doomed, we're dead, a drop of water
Come now sir, please...

We're dead, send a letter, come now sir,
please, please, pleas, please, please please...

Why is it so hard to give lands,
To love, to know oneself

please, please, please, please please...

We weren't born as lords, my friend,
Let's live together, don't think I'm upset with you,
I'm doomed, don't be seperated, come now, brother,
please, please, please, please, please please...

Why is it so hard to give lands,
To pay debts, to know oneself,
please, please, please brother please...

Loved this for a while too. Sounds like one of the themes from Moroder's Cat Poeple.
