_Damien Rice

Hi there :) how are you people?? It's been a while I wanted to write about this ihih :D Well, the other day we were with some friends in Bologna and we went to a music store and it happened I found this cd..

..and I was like "Yay!**" I knew the 'new' cd was out but I never looked for it in stores, so when I saw it I couldn't let go and bought it :D My friends then asked me who Damien Rice is.. here, the answer!

Damien Rice (born 7 December 1973) is an Irish singer-songwriter and musician. As a musician he plays the guitar, piano, clarinet and percussion.
He released his debut album "O" on the 1st of February 2002, which peaked at #8 on the UK albums chart and went on to win the Shortlist music prize. Check out "Cannonball", "The Blower's Daughter" and "Volcano"!! ;)


There’s still a little bit of your taste in my mouth
there’s still a little bit of you laced with my doubt
it’s still a little hard to say what's going on
there’s still a little bit of your ghost your witness
there’s still a little piece of your face i haven't kissed
you step a little closer to me
still i can't see what's going on
stones taught me to fly
love taught me to lie
life taught me to die
so it's not hard to fall
when you float like a cannonball
there’s still a little bit of your song in my ear
there’s still a little bit of your words i long to hear
you step a little closer each day
so close that i can't see what's going on [..]

The Blower's Daughter from "O"

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her skies

I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes... [..]

As you might notice, there are pieces of the movie "Closer"(2004) in the video as this song, together with the piano introduction of 'Cold Water' from the same album, was in the soundtrack of the movie.

It's not a solo case, since many of the songs from "O" were chosen to be part of the soundtrack of many tv series as The L Word, Lost, Dr. House - Medical Division, Alias, Misfits e CSI: Miami, E.R., The O.C. and Dawson's Creek.

I have to confess that Dawson's Creek itself is the reason I found out about Damien Rice aha Here, from min.6.00 (poor Pacey..!)

Finally on the 6th of November 2006 the second album "9" came out and suddenly "9Crimes" and "Rootless Tree" reached the top of my playlist for a while :)

9 Crimes with Lisa Hannigan

Rootless Tree

What I want from you is empty your head
But they say be true, don't stay in your bed
We do what we need to be free
And it leans on me like a rootless tree

What I want from us is learn to let go
But we fade the forests, fracture the tide
We go blind when we needed to see
And it leans on me, like a rootless...

So fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
And all you didn't do
I said bleed it, bleed it, bleed it
There's nothing in you
And do you hate me, hate me, hate me, hate me so much
That you can't let me out, let me out, let me out
Of hell when you're around [..]

And this is it! I hope you had enough info to understand if you like the genre or not and hopefully you'll like it as much as I do :) Syl xx
