DarkJade – To Know Me… Is to Know My Playlist

Posted in Inspiration, Music, Videos with tags , , , , , , , on December 13, 2011 by darkjade68

I came across this Site today… Actually, it was someone who had Clicked “Like” on one of my Poems I believe.

Ironically, they also used the Same Theme as This Blog… Which I hadn’t seen anywhere else so far.

They were a Poet who had a Music Player on Their Site, which started to play some lovely music as you entered the Site… And so I started thinking.

I actually have some “Optional” Music on my One Knight Site, but I’ve never had any here… Especially Music that starts as you enter the Site… Partly because I use Music and Videos on some of my Posts, but also because, each Written Piece has its Own Feeling Etc., and thus the music that comes on may not “Fit”.

However, I was so impressed with this Poet’s Choice of Music, that I realized, I really do want to continue to share my Musical Tastes with my Readers, as Music is truly the way to my Soul… And thus, “To Know Me… Is to Know My Playlist“.

Granted, I have already Written Several Pieces which include Music that I like, but this shall be my First Actual Playlist, with More to Follow. I shall Introduce you to My Playlist on this Post, but it will also be “Playable” on the New Music Player I’ve added to the Right under some of my Other Widgets, and/or Menus.

Also if you’d like access to this First Playlist, you can Simply Click This DarkJade Playlist

Song 11 – Orbital (Halcyon and On and On) – I’ve often said if you want to know what my Soul Sounds like, than Listen to this Song… The way this Song “Sounds”, is how I “Feel” about Love, Life, Thought, and Emotion in General

Song 12 – The Black Eyed Peas (with Slash and Usher) – Put this one in for fun… I definitely have a soft spot for Pop, can’t take life seriously all the time, lol Or yourself for that matter

Song 15 – Chicane – Saltwater – Beautiful Song… I have a Keen Passion for Synthesizers, something I’ve had pretty much all my lifeAnd So Trance is definitely part of my Musical Diet Not to mention I find it quite instrumental in bringing you pretty damn close to a “Dream State”, whilst still being awake. Something I find Quite Useful as a Writer, as the Subconscious is where so much of the Good Stuff comes from

Song 16 – Clubbed to Death

Song 17 – The Missing Track – This one didn’t work for some reason, maybe I’ll throw it on my List next time

Thanks For Listening





DarkJade – Remembering (Pearl Jam)

Posted in Inspiration, Music, Rock N Roll, Videos with tags , , , on October 8, 2011 by darkjade68

It’s funny, I was looking for a song by the Beatles on YouTube, “You Have To Hide Your Love Away”, which I have to say is one of my Favorite Beatle Songs now… Though it didn’t make my Beatles Post, but that primarily focused on “Abbey Road”, and it was from the “Help” Album. In locating a Video of the Beatles song, which I really liked, I also saw, and remembered, that Pearl Jam had remade that song. And that got me thinking. In the 90’s, Pearl Jam was my absolute Favorite Band… No doubt. I loved the Cure, and other Bands like Depeche Mode, but Pearl Jam was just awesome. Man could Eddie Vedder sing.

So I thought I’d take you back with me, in Remembering Pearl Jam

“Better Man”

Man did I love that song… Listened to it over, and over, and over again… One of the things I liked about Pearl Jam, was I could actually sing their songs, which faired well for Singing in the Car, which I did a lot… Especially when Pear Jam came on.

“Even Flow”

This footage is just un$#@ing believable. I guess I’ve probably seen it at some point, but man they really caught him in his Prime Moment. Just Awesome.


Once again, just awesome footage.


This song is just tremendous. I used to love to sing it, it just goes so deep with me for some reason… It literally almost made me cry whenever I listened to it… What a softy, lol “I know some day you’ll have a beautiful life… I know you’ll be a star… in somebody elses sky… But why can’t it be mine” Just fricken awesome.

“Yellow Ledbetter”

Just an awesome song.

I’ll go ahead and end it with this one, I’m sure you know it well, it was I believe their most Impactive Song, and the one that sent them Flying through the next 10 plus years


Thanks for Listening/Reading
