Kristeen Young, 'Life's Not Short, It's Sooo Long'

Posted this a long time ago, but it was a video, not a live performance. Some of you will really like her, others will plug your ears or run out of the room. It matters not!



I saw her and met her and talked to her for quite a bit so I happen to like her and most of her music. And by most I mean probably half. She has some punkish stuff I don't like. But she had some slow, haunting stuff like this too that sounds totally original.

Oh, and she's a very nice person. Very polite, even to a total stranger like me. That goes a long way in my book when so many people in this world just blow you off unless you're someone they can use for their own ends, or you're oozing money and bling.

Lyrics from her own site,
for anyone interested.

"Life's Not Short, It's SOOOO Long"

Waiting to turn 18…life’s not short; it’s so long.
Waiting to be cut free…life’s not short; it’s so long.

Please, change this course.
Life’s not short; it’s so long.

Waiting for 5:15…life’s not short; it’s so long.
Where is my childhood dream? Life’s not short; it’s so long.

Please, change my course.
Life’s not short; it’s so long.
Please, change my stars.
Life’s not short; it’s so long.
Life’s not short; it’s so long.
Life’s not short; it’s…

Sorcery, intervene!
Hurry! I’m like glass.
Toad and Owl, Save me now!
Hurry! I’m just flesh.
Hurry! Flesh don’t last.
Hurry! Life’s not fast.

Kristeen Young is best unknown performer of the 21st century. Saw her twice in pre 9 11 NYC at cb's 313 Gallery, the art space - more acoustic sonic offspring of cbgb. She impresses with intelligence and vocal ability. Never mind the bollocks spewed by the ringleader of the tomatoes. Kristeen will prevail.
