Zitate Nick Lowe

„Theres one thing I wanna know:
What's so funny 'bout Peace, Love, and Understanding?“

—  Nick Lowe

"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" on The New Favourites of Brinsley Schwarz (1974); the song later became a hit as sung by Elvis Costello. ( Nicke Lowe performance http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7txCdLCP9U - Elvis Costello & Nick Lowe joint performance http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWdh7ERLb3E)
Kontext: As I walk through
This wicked world
Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity,
I ask myself
Is all hope lost?
Is there only pain and hatred, and misery? And each time I feel like this inside,
Theres one thing I wanna know:
What's so funny 'bout Peace, Love, and Understanding?

„I pick myself up off the ground to have you knock me back down
Again and again“

—  Nick Lowe

"Cruel to Be Kind" on the single Little Hitler / Cruel to Be Kind (1978) (Top of the Pops 1979) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JJ7oGHwMTI
Kontext: I pick myself up off the ground to have you knock me back down
Again and again and when I ask you to explain
You say, you've got to be...
Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby, you got to be cruel, you got to be cruel to be kind.

„As I walk through
This wicked world
Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity,
I ask myself
Is all hope lost?“

„So where are the strong
And who are the trusted?“

—  Nick Lowe

"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" on The New Favourites of Brinsley Schwarz (1974)
Kontext: So where are the strong
And who are the trusted?
And where is the harmony?
Sweet harmony —
'cause each time I feel it slippin away, it just makes me wanna cry:
What's so funny 'bout Peace, Love, and Understanding?

„Baby, you got to be cruel, you got to be cruel to be kind.“

—  Nick Lowe

„You know, the actual punk music, I didn't care for at all. I thought it was all rubbish, really. It was the attitude, the way that things were being shaken up, that excited me more.“

—  Nick Lowe

"Nick Lowe" interview with Noel Murray at the A.V. Club (27 June 2007)
Kontext: You know, the actual punk music, I didn't care for at all. I thought it was all rubbish, really. It was the attitude, the way that things were being shaken up, that excited me more. I still liked people who were good, you know? Who could actually play. Even though The Damned were a punk group, they played great. As did Elvis, and as did Ian. They were the ones who interested me. Not some of those daft punkers, especially the ones who had people who were actually pretty good musicians sort of pretending to play badly. That was just so stupid, and missed the point completely, I thought. So it was the people who were true to themselves, I think, that were the exciting ones.

„And so it goes and so it goes
But where it's goin' no one knows.“

—  Nick Lowe

"So It Goes" on Jesus of Cool (1978) - (1978 performance) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O4GagrfqO8

„I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll.“

—  Nick Lowe

"I Knew the Bride" on Dave Edmunds' album Get It (1977) (Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe performance) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qT2EQoWBHWU
