The Yamaha TW200 after a fall...

Other than Norechab's unique brand of pure silence, music is a vitally important part of the complete picture.

The following song, written originally by the great Jimi Hendrix and subsequently covered by Sting is the most fitting audioscape for Norechab. Jimi's version was unreal, Sting's even better. (Oh, and the Corrs should be dunked in battery acid for desecrating it. In 2001, Sean had a drink next to one of the "Corr" sisters in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge, London. However, the closest he could come to taking the matter up with her was ordering another drink while thinking about it. Weed.).

If, standing on top of a mountain on Norechab, the warm wind in your hair, the sun setting and Little Wing playing in the Landrover, you're not moved into an all together different state of being, you've got to be even more "uncaring and insensitive" than Sean! Enjoy.....

 

LITTLE WING

"Now she's walking through the clouds

With a circus mind

That's running wild

Butterflies and zebras

And moonbeams and fairytales

All she ever thinks about is riding with the wind

When I'm sad she comes to me

With a thousand smiles

She gives to me, free

It's alright, it's alright' she says

Take anything, anything you want from me.

 

 

Here's another GREAT by Stan Getz, covered by many others but never bettered.

HOW INSENSITIVE

How insensitive

I must have seemed when he told me that he loved me.

How unmoved and cold I must have seemed when he said it so sincerely.

Why, he must have asked did I just turn and stare in icy silence?

What was I to do?

What can you do?

When a love affair is over?

Now he's gone away and I'm alone with the memory of his last look.

Vague and drawn and sad, I see it still

All the heartbreak of his last look.

Why, he must have asked would I just turn and stare in icy silence?

What was I to say?

What can you say?

when a love affair is over?

Why, he must have asked did I just turn and stare in icy silence?

What was I to say?

What can you say?

when a love affair is over? over over
