Industrial sound is dying in this hall of fame

“It’s bright in the heavens and the wheels are flying
Fame and honor never seem to fade
The fire’s gone out but the light is never dying
Who says I can’t get heavenly aid?”

(Bob Dylan in Ain’t talking)
Sambreville (B)

Das Zwiegespräch

“I wus lookin’ high an’ low for them Reds everywhere
I wus lookin’ in the sink an’ underneath the chair
I looked way up my chimney hole
I even looked deep down inside my toilet bowl
They got away . . .”

(Bob Dylan in Talkin’ John Birch paranoid blues)
Dilsen-Stokkem (B)

Die hard … Die harder!

“Prepare to hate me fall when I may
This night will hurt you like never before

Old loves they die hard
Old lies they die harder

I wish I had an angel
For one moment of love …”

(Nightwish in I wish I had an Angel)

The secrets of a drawer

"Drei Wandrer sind gegangen,
Und als der Abend fiel,
Da trugen sie Verlangen
Nach frohem Kartenspiel.
Der Jüngste sprach: "Ich bitte,
Sagt an, geht es um Geld?"
Und Antwort gab der Dritte:
"Wir spielen um die Welt!""

(K. Busse in Drei Wandrer)
Flemalle (B)

No bell’s in this tower

"When the bells justle in the tower
  The hollow night amid,
Then on my tongue the taste is sour
  Of all I ever did."

(A.E. Housman from Additional Poems, no. 9)
Anderlues (B)
