Because behind every good thing there is a wonderful story, Eckhoes proudly present some stories that shine out of excellent songs. Different artist, genre, time, these songs have little in common in their style, but they tell a story that we will share with you Eckhonauts.
Dinner at Eight
By Eva Estefania Trujeque Moreno
The recommendation of the day to listen to is this excellent song “Dinner at Eight”. It is a song by the Canadian-American singer-song writer Rufus Wainwright from his album Want One, released in 2003. Recently, it was recorded by the band Keane too. It is a 4:33 minute song written by Wainwright where he tells, in a sad melody, how a child and his father argue during dinner. It is full of sensitiveness and fragility, especially shown when describing how it feels for a child to be the blamed one, the hassle of the family. This single is interpreted beautifully by Wainwright who uses only a piano to sing it. It makes you reflect on your own parents and what they mean to you. A melancholic masterpiece that is worth to be heard.
Dinner at Eight
No matter how strong
I’m gonna take you down
With one little stone
I’m gonna break you down
And see what you’re worth
What you’re really worth to me

Regarding Children’s month: “Annie” by Wolfsheim
By Hugo Molina
The way we raise children has been a complete issue for centuries since men decided to become “civilized”. It’s psychologically proved that any individual’s early years have great impact for the rest of their lives .Thus, I very personally think that many global problems the world has always faced are caused by the ideas, that consequently lead actions, we all get from childhood; for instance, wars, discrimination, suicide, corruption, intolerance and others (can you think of more?).
To educate through the example is an irrefutable truth, to pay attention to children’s needs is urgently important for the improvement of any society, in the end actions define any human being. However, we barely think of that since we are immersed in this world full of duties. This crude universal story about the indifference towards children is reflectively described by the electronic-melancholic rhythms and lyrics of a German duo named “Wolfsheim”.
“Annie”, the third song included in their 1992-album “No Happy View”, tells the story of a little girl who wants to get some attention from her father, yet she fails since Daddy is always busy watching TV. Below a fragment of the song:
“and you’re waiting for your daily thrill impatiently …
to collect it for your private horror show
and you´re watching moving shadows live instead of you … and you …
you don´t know that Annie´s living next to you”
It ends at:
“you couldn´t be near her
wouldn´t hear what Annie says
you couldn´t be near her
wouldn´t hear when Annie laughs … when Annie laughs
you couldn´t be near her
wouldn´t feel that Annie … Annie … Annie loves”
If you like electronic bands of a high quality such as Depeche Mode you cannot miss the change to listen to Wolsheim’s whole discography. Visit: www.wolfsheim.de

Get in shape with no time- March 3 by Alfredo
Nowadays, practicing any sport is very important due to the advantages they provide to our health… but we as good students don’t have always the opportunity to do it; you know.. We have homework, we have to organize some presentations for some interesting class in our lovely school; also, our “free time” is used to do extracurricular activities like get in touch by messenger, facebook or any social red linked with no physical contact; catching up with our friends that we haven’t seen for ages… Like… two or three hours since we left school, I know it’s a long period of time but hopefully we can talk to them.

Abbey Road Becomes English Heritage February 23 by Ingrid Fuentes
I was wondering how to start writing this post. One of my ideas was to start by recalling a song which is part of the Abbey Road volume by The Beatles. When I looked up for one song that fulfil to this requirement I found ot the following one:
I want you
I want you so bad
it’s driving me mad
… She’s so Heavy.
It caught immediately my attention the simplicity in the lyrics the one I wasn’t aware even though it is one of my favourite songs. Full entry here
Alternative movie versions about Alice in Wonderland by L. Carroll. March 28 by Hugo Molina
Lewis Carroll published Alice in Wonderland in 1870, when movies were not a way of expression yet, eventually the first illustrations about Alice were portrayed by Blanche McManus in 1900 for the current edition of that year. Three years later, and 33 years after releasing the first novel edition, a first movie inspired in this immediate classic came.
It passed almost fifty years for mankind to watch another Alice in Wonderland version, this time at the theatres. Walt Disney was the responsible to take Carroll’s story to an animated language, which has remained in the mind of thousands for decades. Read the rest here
