What Are You Listening To At The Moment?

Recommended Posts

Here's an oldie...but I like the words.

Starry, starry night

Paint your palette blue and gray

Look out on a summer's day

With eyes that know the darkness in my soul

Shadows on the hills

Sketch the trees and the daffodils

Catch the breeze and the winter chills

In colors on the snowy linen land

Now I understand

What you tried to say to me

How you suffered for your sanity

How you tried to set them free

They would not listen they did not how

Perhaps they'll listen now

Starry, starry night

Flaming flowers that brightly blaze

Swirling clouds in violet haze

Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue

Colors changing hue

Morning fields of amber grain

Weathered faces lined in pain

Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

For they could not love you

But still your love was true

And when no hope was left inside

On that starry, starry night

You took your life as lovers often do

But I could have told you Vincent

This world was never meant for one as

beautiful as you

Starry, starry night

Portraits hung in empty halls

Frameless heads on nameless walls

With eyes that watch the world and can't forget

Like the strangers that you've met

The ragged men in ragged clothes

The silver thorn of bloody rose

Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow

Now I think I know

What you tried to say to me

How you suffered for your sanity

How you tried to set them free

They did not listen they're not listening still

Perhaps they never will

We Didn't Start The Fire........Billy Joel

Harry Truman, Doris Day, Red China, Johnnie Ray

South Pacific, Walter Winchell, Joe DiMaggio

Joe McCarthy, Richard Nixon, Studebaker, television

North Korea, South Korea, Marilyn Monroe

Rosenbergs, H-bomb, Sugar Ray, Panmunjom

Brando, "The King and I" and "The Catcher in the Rye"

Eisenhower, vaccine, England's got a new queen

Marciano, Liberace, Santayana goodbye

CHORUS

We didn't start the fire

It was always burning

Since the world's been turning

We didn't start the fire

No we didn't light it

But we tried to fight it

I leant from the best...

... Mr R Martineze!

All I need now is a good tan and some leather tousers!

Oh! You know what THAT means? It's TIME to "Shake your Bon Bon" with Ricky Martin!! :o

Im a desperado

Underneath your window

I see your silhouette

Are you my juliet

I feel a mad connection

With your body

Shake your bon-bon

Shake your bon-bon

Shake your bon-bon

I wanna be your lover

Your only latin lover

Well go around the world in a day

Dont say no, no

Shake it my way, oh

Shake your bon-bon

Shake your bon-bon

Shake your bon-bon

Hola amiga, hola amiga

You're my temple of desire

Well go around the world in a day

Don't say no, no

Shake it my way, oh

Shake your bon-bon

Shake your bon-bon

Shake your bon-bon

Youre a mata hari

I wanna know your story

In the Sahara sun

I wanna be the one

That's gonna come and take you, make you

Shake your bon-bon

Shake your bon-bon

Shake your bon-bon

Up in the himalayas

C'mon I wanna lay ya

Well go around the world in a day

Don't say no, no

Shake it my way, oh

Shake your bon-bon

Shake your bon-bon

Shake your bon-bon!

Kind of reminds me of when I was watching the Proms the other night. Not similar really, but they had the big end of session finale, with Elgar's 'Pomp and Circumstance' etc.

I got all very patriotic and even a little emotional!

Then I remembered that I hate my damn country... or at the fools running it.

Bummer! :lol:

So true!

Right now Im listening to Mozart K331. Its a keyboard Sonata, but it starts with this beautiful set of variations rather than the typical Allegro form. Im not a huge fan or Mozart usually, but this one is a favorite!

Especially when one needs a brief chillout, know what I mean VG?

Absolutely, spot on song. For this evening!

The Best - Tina Turner

I call you when I need you, my heart's on fire

You come to me, come to me wild and wild

When you come to me

and give me everything I need.

Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams

Speak a language of love like you know what it means

And it can't be wrong

Take my heart and make it strong, baby.

You're simply the best,

better than all the rest

Better than anyone,

anyone I've ever met .

I'm stuck on your heart,

and hang on every word you say

Tear us apart,

Baby, I would rather be dead.

In your heart I see the star of every night and every day

In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away

Just as long as I'm here in your arms

I could be in no better place.

Maggie May.....Rod Stewart

Wake up Maggie I think I got something to say to you

It's late September and I really should be back at school

I know I keep you amused but I feel I'm being used

Oh Maggie I couldn't have tried any more

You lured me away from home just to save you from being alone

You stole my heart and that's what really hurt

Ok. It's time for something by good ol' "Blue Eyes"8)

NOT be be confused with our very own "Tall_Blue_Eyes" ! :lol:

I've Got You Under My Skin - Frank Sinatra - (C. Porter)

I've got you under my skin.

I've got you deep in the heart of me.

So deep in my heart that you're really a part of me.

I've got you under my skin.

I'd tried so not to give in.

I said to myself: this affair never will go so well.

But why should I try to resist when, baby, I know so well

I've got you under my skin

I'd sacrifice anything come what might

For the sake of havin' you near

In spite of a warnin' voice that comes in the night

And repeats, repeats in my ear:

Don't you know, little fool, you never can win?

Use your mentality, wake up to reality.

But each time that I do just the thought of you

Makes me stop before I begin

'Cause I've got you under my skin.

Yes, I've got you under my skin.

Me And Bobby Magee......Kris Kristofferson

Busted flat in Batten Rouge, waitin for the train,

Feelin' 'bout as faded as my jeans,

Bobby thumbed a diesel down, just before it rained,

Took us all the way to New Orleans.

I pulled my old harpoon out of my dirty red bandanna,

And was blowing sad while Bobby sang the blues, yeah

With them wipers slappin' time,

And Bobby clapping hands we finally

sang up every song that driver knew.
