You don't like that, do you, Mr. Undead Marine! RRRRRR!'"

The Circle

Posted by shanoah on July 16, 2008

The circle is complete, hmmm? But which circle would that be?

The Circle of Life?

The Circle of Life (Multilanguage version)

Thought I’d put the cool multilingual version here, which cycles between languages as it progresses…

A Circle of Steel?

Circle of Steel – Gordon Lightfoot

I really enjoy a number of Gordon Lightfoot songs, including this one. He just manages some absolutely beautiful imagery occassionally in his lyrics.

Perhaps we have to be in the Center of the Circle?

Cleanup Time – John Lennon

You know, Double Fantasy has to be the quintissential John Lennon album in my opinion, for all that it is his last one.

“The Center of the Circle will always be Our Home.”

Absolutely, John.

Or maybe it’s a wheel?

Watching the Wheels – John Lennon

As I have mentioned, I love the album “Double Fantasy”. Perhaps that’s why I’m playing two songs from it. But then, this is another one of these songs that really is somewhat of a personal theme song, that echoes and reverberates for me.
