Cogs can think.

I'm a mere, tiny, insignificant cog in a whole clockwork of stupidity.
The little cog that wanted to break free, I am.

My Votes For The Top2000

I just placed my ten votes for the Top2000, the one-and-only Dutch all-time list of best songs in the history of music. My ten votes go to, in no particular order:

  • The Eagles - Hotel California (1977)

  • The Eagles - The Last Resort (1976)

  • Don McLean - Vincent (1972)

  • Don McLean - American Pie (1972)

  • Bruce Springsteen - Streets Of Philadelphia (1994)

  • U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday (1985)

  • Roxette - It Must Have Been Love (1990)

  • Boomtown Rats - I Don't Like Mondays (1979)

  • Bryan Adams - Summer Of '69 (1988?)

  • Johnny Cash - A Boy Named Sue (1969)


  • People who know me well will know that "The Last Resort" is my true number one, and that the Eagles is my favourite band of all time. Yet, it is very difficult to choose between "Hotel California" and "The Last Resort". The former is the opener of the best album ever, the latter the final epic of that very same album. The album "Hotel California", about the state of music, mankind, and the US in general, is still very much timeless. From "The Last Resort":

    You can leave it all behind
    and sail to Lahaina
    just like the missionaries did, so many years ago
    They even brought a neon sign: "Jesus is coming"
    Brought the white man's burden down
    Brought the white man's reign

    Who will provide the grand design?
    What is yours and what is mine?
    'Cause there is no more new frontier
    We have got to make it here

    We satisfy our endless needs
    and justify our bloody deeds,
    in the name of destiny
    and the name of God


    The most beautiful sequence of words ever put on paper. I wish more people (Mr. Bush, Balkenende, Blair, Sharon, etc) would stop and listen to this.

    On the other hand-- they're probably to stupid to comprehend the meaning.
