Music Single : Tim Buckley – Buzzin’Fly

images (2)

There are some songs that CB has no defense against ‘Buzzin’Fly’ is one of them. It’s a musical journey for me. TB making his unique kind of music. The playing and the tune are hypnotic to me but it’s Buckley’s vocals and his commitment to his feeling. He never holds back his emotions. Perfect piece for me.

This is one of those feel good songs that I’ve been listening to for a long time. It never fails to deliver. Not unlike The Kinks ‘Waterloo Sunset’ it just does it to me. That’s what this blog is about, songs (music/film) that move me.

Just listen to those early guitar licks and vibes, the whole song builds from there and just gets better. It’s great without the vocals but it hits the ceiling when Tim sings it. I could listen to a long jam on this one. Tim Buckley is one of my favorite musicians and ‘Buzzin’Fly’ seals the deal.

If you go somewhere and hear this song and see a guy with a tie dye t- shirt on and a cigar stuck in his mouth and he’s doing that floating, twirling hippie girl dance, it’s probably CB. Come on, get up and twirl with Tim and me.

    “Buzzin Fly” sounds like spring for me. Tim Buckley lets his vocal cords vibrate in all highs and lows, almost jubilantly. I’ve always admired his meditative-hypnotic music, but I’m not always in the mood for it.

      ‘Spring”. Yeah that’s it. Fox I might be in a small group but Buckley to me has been in my listening for a long time. His ‘LA’ record never stops giving to me. Same as this song.

        All of Tim Buckley’s studio albums have high quality, but “Happy Sad” is probably his most innovative album. You can hear a lot jazz improvisational influences here. “Strange Feelin”, “Dream Letter” or “Love From Room 109 At The Islander” have an incredible intensity, fatefully lost between space and time. There is also a nice version of “Buzzin’ Fly” on the album “The Dream Belongs To Me”.

        Well, there are strange days when I like to listen to the magical melancholy music from Tim Buckley and there are days I can’t stand this…

        Why we have eclectic tastes Fox. We can just grab another record

        Absolutely, CB! The French Dada artist Francis Picabia once said: “Our heads are round so our thoughts can change direction”. That sounds like a provocative contradiction, but there is something funny and subtle about it.

    Tim Buckley was one of those artists I had read about but until recent years hadn’t actually listened to– and I found out I had missed something. While he seems known today as Jeff’s father- his own brief career -well worth checking out. Hello Goodbye the album which I liked best.

      I delved into Jeff’s music and like it but its the opposite for me. Tim was where I listen. His music is all over. Play ‘Hello’ and then slap on ‘Greetings From LA’. A bit of a musical journey.

    There should be many more people who do the floating, twirling, hippie girl dance. CB, you rock!

    This one might take me some time to get used to. The xylophone and guitar sound like they are on different pages.

      I hear you on the getting used to. He has his own sound. Lots of jazz in there. Mars, what can I say, I dig the guy and this song a lot.

        I put it on my “listen to ” list so I’ll give it a few more spins, CB.

        Mars, ‘Greetings From LA’ is a real departure for him. It’s adult stuff and he was feeling his uncensored Mojo. I would be interested in your opinion on that . It would be like stepping into fresh cement. Thanks for the input

    Love that tune, CB! It’s also a great reminder of a music artist I’ve encountered various times, yet I still need to explore.

      He was buried back when. My guess is he’s really buried now. But we are bringing his music to the people’s ears.

    Had not heard this one before CB, and it’s positively sublime. It’s so damn heartbreaking that both Tim and Jeff died far too young.

      The song just does it for me. Yeah the loss of both at such a young age was a hit. It’s funny I never think of Jeff when I play Tim’s music. The comments here are going to push me towards some Jeff time.

    Tim is one of those underrated, underappreciated artists. I really like his stuff up through, say, Starsailor. Blue Afternoon is probably my favorite, but all of his first four are fantastic. Nice to see another fan out here.

      Oh yeah, same page. I’ve done a couple takes on TB. One of them made an instant fan. It prompted a listen to ‘Greeting’ and the person loved it. So we have one more fan in the club. Thanks Intro.
      (Ill be over soon for a peak at a couple takes.)

    Catchy tune. But now I can’t get that image of CB twirling around like some fucking 60s Deadhead burnout out of my head.

        We used to drink stuff we called Mad Dog 20/20 or Wild Turkey. If I drank enough of it, I then believed that the ladies found me more attractive. Turns out it doesn’t work that way.
