This song always reminds me of my friend and the relationship she was in. She was very patient and made an effort with him but he never realised how lucky he was to have her as his partner. I know exactly how you felt when you put 2 and 2 together,and realized that being an alcoholic explained a lot of your thoughts and actions.
What a relief. That's exactly Dont Talk - 10,000 Maniacs - In My Tribe I felt, I knew that something was wrong, but didn't know what. When a doctor took my history, he told that I was an alcoholic, a wave of relief came over me, I finally knew why I felt the way I did.
Thursday, September 15, Don't Talk. Don't Talk from Dont Talk - 10,000 Maniacs - In My Tribe 10, Maniacs album In My Tribe Don't talk, I will listen don't talk, you keep your distance I'd rather hear some truth tonight than entertain your lies take your poison silently let me be, let me close my eyes Don't talk, I'll believe it don't talk, listen to me instead I know that if you think of it both long enough and hard it's the drink you drown your troubles in is the trouble you're in now Talk, talk, talk about it you talk as if you care but when your talk is over tilt that bottle in the air tossing back more than your share Don't talk, I can guess it don't talk, well now you're restless and you need somewhere to put the blame for how you feel inside you'll look for a close and easy mark and you'll see me as fair game Talk, talk, talk about it talk as if you care but when your talk is over tilt that bottle in the air tossing back more than your share you talk talk talk about it you talk as if you care.
I'm marking every word and I can tell this time for sure your talk is the finest I have heard Running (Radio Cut) - K-Paul - Running talk, let me go on dreaming how your eyes they glow so fiercely I can tell you're inspired by the name you just chose for me now what was it?
For a lot of us that means we spend our first several years of life assuming our family is pretty much normal. We don't know any different. But as we start getting older and spending more and more time with other people's families, we may start reassessing our Dont Talk - 10,000 Maniacs - In My Tribe viewpoint. I knew there was something that made my family different from my friends' families, but I never tried particularly hard to identify it. I just figured it was because my parents were older than theirs, or had less money, or something mundane and simple like that.
But then one day I overheard a conversation in my house that featured one particular word, a word that shot through me like a bolt of lightning. That was the only word I needed to hear. All of a sudden everything that Mystic Eyes - Chants R&B - Chants R&B ever been a mystery in my life was made shockingly clear. I felt a little foolish that I had never figured it out before.
Perhaps I also should've felt devastated, ashamed, or angry. But at that moment, I didn't feel any of those emotions. In fact, there was only one emotion I remember feeling - relief. Finally, things made sense. So when, many years later, a friend and fellow 10, Maniacs fan asked me how I could stand to listen to the song Don't TalkI found myself surprised at the question. Isn't it too painful? Kar (Video Texto) - Insite - Una Vida no es Suficiente Talkalong with so many other Maniacs songs, particularly on In My Tribefocuses its grip onto something hidden and drags it out into the light.
So no, it is has never been too difficult for me to listen to the song. Don't Talk brings out the same emotion in me that I experienced at that pivotal moment in my youth - relief. I love every word in this song, but there are a few lines that I find especially meaningful. Cradle Of Fear - Demon Project - Kara Ora as everyone knows, anger demands a victim. For the alcoholic the "close and easy mark" becomes the people unfortunate enough to be with them when they're drunk, and that usually includes the people closest to them.
And yet when Natalie was once asked in an In Our Deep Vaulted Cell - Purcell*, Emmanuelle Haïm, Susan Graham about the topic of writing love songs, here was her reply: "I look on Don't Talk as a love song, because if there wasn't caring between those people there'd be no need for the song.
But this quote from Natalie has made me listen to, and appreciate, the song in a different way. Here is one more quote from Natalie: "Several people who heard Don't Talk wrote me letters saying that they came from alcoholic households and that it made them feel less alone to hear a song about it. Music cannot fix all of the world's problems. It cannot change the fundamental flaws of human nature. But it can and does make people feel less alone.
If this is the highest purpose music ever achieves, I think it's a noble one. Thank you for reading this week. I've gotten some e-mail in recent weeks containing some theories and insights into Natalie's music that I would like to share in future posts. I always love to hear your ideas and thoughts so if you'd like to comment on this Dont Talk - 10,000 Maniacs - In My Tribe post, you can do so below or you can e-mail me at nmcompendium yahoo. Most of you die-hard Natalie fans probably already know this, but in case you Dont Talk - 10,000 Maniacs - In My Tribe heard, Natalie contributed a song called "Learning the Game" to a Buddy Holly tribute album that came out last week.
I've included an Itunes link to the song below. Anonymous September 13, at PM. Dingle Berry January 16, at PM. Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.
