Song Lyric Sunday. Bye Bye.

Good Sunday Everyone! Well it’s time again for Song Lyric Sunday. This week our debonair host Jim Adams has given us the prompt : – Arrivederci/Bon-voyage/Ciao/Farewell/Goodbye/Hasta la vista/Sayonara/Shalom. Well once again we have plenty to get our teeth into.

First up though BAY City Rollers frontman Les McKeown died at 65, the band announced today.He died suddenly at home on April 20, with the group paying tribute to the former heart-throb.

Last September his fellow group member Ian Mitchell died.

The Bay City Rollers are a Scottish pop rock band known for their worldwide teen idol popularity in the 1970s. They have been labelled the ‘tartan teen sensations from Edinburgh’ and “the first of many acts heralded as the ‘biggest group since the Beatles'”.



Caterina Caselli (born 10 April 1946) is an Italian record producer, music executive, singer, bass player and actress. It’s a lovely song but despite searching hard I could not find the lyrics but it has arriviederci and ciao in the title and lyrics. …enjoy.

Oceanic is a 1996 studio album by Greek electronic composer Vangelis. It was released in Europe on October 25, 1996 by East West Records, and in the United States on January 28, 1997 by Atlantic Records. A single “Song of the Seas”, with b-side “Aquatic Dance”, was released simultaneously.

The first track “Bon Voyage” starts with the sounds of sea waves, and continues as orchestral electronica. It fades into “Sirens’ Whispering”, which feature beat sequence with melody and choir. “Dreams of Surf” is based around acoustic piano. “Spanish Harbour” also features beat and melody as well Spanish guitar. “Islands of the Orient” is a blend of Tangerine Dream-like sequences, chinoiseriejazzy melody. “Fields of Coral” is the most ambient track on the album. “Aquatic Dance” is built on a synth-bass ostinato and synth-vocals. “Memories of Blue” recalls the “Memories of Green” from Blade Runner. “Song of the Seas” is mellow sequencer-based track, which fades out to the surf sounds that began the album. The album includes effects which sound like whales, ships horns, porpoises, seagulls and even chimes.[1]

The album showcase melodic orchestration, and by sound is more similar to the New-age music rather than his experimental albums.

It also reached the top ten in SwedenAustralia and France. In the United States, “Goodbye My Lover” had modest success on the Billboard singles chart, where it reached number 66 on the Billboard Hot 100 due to digital downloads, even though the single was not yet released in the US. The song was formally released in the United States on 7 November 2006.

    That is quite a selection, Willow! The first song was of course sung here in the US by Frankie Vali and the Four Seasons. All the others were new to me.
