Song Lyric Sunday Breeze/Cloud/Sky/Wind

This Sunday has come round again, this week Jim Adams our eloquent host has given us an interesting Prompt. Weather Forecast, for Song Lyric Sunday, we have to use the words Breeze,Cloud, Sky,Wind.

First up I chose the fabulous Kate Bush who influenced me no end. The track I chose has cloud and sky in the lyrics and sky in the title. “The Big Sky” is a song by English singer-songwriter Kate Bush. Released in 1986, it was the fourth and final single to be released from her No. 1 album Hounds of Love. The single became another Top 40 hit for Bush, peaking at No. 37 on the UK Singles Chart.

The 7″ single was released as the “Special Single Mix”, which includes a different intro. This version appears as a B-side on the 1994 CD single “The Red Shoes“. The 12” single includes an extended version of “The Big Sky” called the “Meteorological Mix”.

The song is about remembering some of the simple pleasures enjoyed as children that most no longer find the time for, such as spending the afternoon looking at the sky, watching the clouds take on shapes.

Lyrics

They look down
At the ground
Missing.
But I never go in now.I’m looking at the Big Sky.
I’m looking at the Big Sky now.
I’m looking at the Big Sky.
You never understood me.
You never really tried.That cloud, that cloud–
Looks like Ireland.
C’mon and blow it a kiss now
But quick’ Cause it’s changing in the Big Sky
It’s changing in the Big Sky now.
We’re looking at the Big Sky.
You never understood me.
You never really tried.This cloud, this cloud–
Says “Noah
C’mon and build me an Ark.”
And if you’re coming, jump
‘CauseWe’re leaving with the Big Sky.
We’re leaving with the Big Sky.
And we pause for the jets–
Hup! hup!–in the Big Sky!You want my reply?
What was the question?
I was looking at the Big Sky.
Tell ’em, sisters!
“Rolling over like a great big cloud
Walking out in the Big Sky!
Rolling over like a great big cloud
Walking out in the Big Sky!

Wind

We all know and love Freddie Mercury and Queen’s original Bohemian Rhapsody. I have chosen the version from The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for AIDS Awareness . Elton John took the lead and though he is no Freddy he brilliant. Axel Rose was to come at the last part of the song. Well I have heard tell Axel would not rehearsh. So when he bounced on to the stage with a flash and a bang, red bandana, crop top, black leather kilt ,white socks and bother boots the audience went wild and I bet Elton and Queen where shocked. But boy was he great. He was like a whirling Dervish. At the end Elton and Axel spontaneously approached the front of the stage arm in arm and sang a poignant ending “Anyway the wind blows.”

The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert for AIDS Awareness was a benefit concert held on Easter Monday, 20 April 1992 at Wembley Stadium in LondonUnited Kingdom for an audience of 72,000.[1] The concert was produced for television by Ray Burdis, directed by David Mallet and broadcast live on television and radio to 76 countries around the world, with an audience of up to one billion.[2][3] The concert was a tribute to Queen‘s lead vocalist, Freddie Mercury, who died of AIDS on 24 November 1991. The show marked bassist John Deacon‘s final full-length concert with Queen (save a short live appearance with Brian MayRoger Taylor and Elton John in 1997). The profits from the concert were used to launch The Mercury Phoenix Trust, an AIDS charity organisation.

Bohemian Rhapsody”

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality

Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy
Because I’m easy come, easy go
Little high, little low
Any way the wind blows
Doesn’t really matter to me, to me

Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger, now he’s dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away

Mama, ooh
Didn’t mean to make you cry
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body’s aching all the time
Goodbye, everybody, I’ve got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth

Mama, ooh (Any way the wind blows)
I don’t want to die
I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning very, very frightening me
(Galileo) Galileo
(Galileo) Galileo
Galileo Figaro
Magnifico-o-o-o-o

I’m just a poor boy, nobody loves me
He’s just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go (Let me go!)
Will not let you go (Let me go!)
Never let you go (Never, never, never, never let me go)
Oh oh oh oh
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh, mama mia, mama mia (Mama mia, let me go)
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh, baby, can’t do this to me, baby
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here

Ooooh, ooh yeah, ooh yeah

Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters
Nothing really matters to me

Any way the wind blows…

Breeze.

Last up Eric Clapton . Lyrics in the video.

Call Me the Breeze” is a rock song by J. J. Cale. It first appeared on his 1972 debut album, Naturally, as the opening track. The song consists of a 12-bar blues guitar shuffle and features the early use of a drum machine.

JJ Cale performed the song along with his longtime friend Eric Clapton, at Clapton’s 2004 Crossroads Guitar Festival.[2] The version, featuring an extended guitar solo by Clapton, is included on the official Crossroads DVD released in late 2004.[3] Later, when Clapton got the news that Cale had died, he performed various tunes composed by JJ Cale for his 2013 Baloise Session concert, dedicating his performance to Cale.[4] For his 2014 tribute-album to JJ Cale, titled The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale, Clapton covered the song with the original drum machine sound at the beginning, saying it’s not possible to really cover Cale’s work: “You can hear the drum machine and JJ rambling at the beginning there”.[5] His take on the song was released under the title “They Call Me the Breeze” as a promotional single on June 30, 2014 for Surfdog and Polydor Records, accessible via digital music download.[6]

Music video

On June 6, 2014, Clapton’s management published the official lyric video with licence to Warner Bros. Records on his YouTube channel, before the album’s release. Twenty days later the official music video was released and was directed by Joseph Toman. It features original photographic and videographic material of both Cale, and Clapton with Cale. The video opens with Clapton, hitchhiking with his guitar case in a rural location, holding a sign for Escondido, mimicking the cover art of the duo’s album, The Road to Escondido. He is picked up by a car. The car footage is interspersed with Clapton who is seen singing and playing the song on a guitar given to him by Cale in 2006.The video shows Cale enjoying the classic American lifestyle. While driving around, Clapton chats to the driver, portrayed by English actor and director Dexter Fletcher about Cale, explaining that he wants to visit Escondido because an “old mate used to live there”. Clapton pays tribute to Cale saying “he was a fantastic guy and a great musician … he was my hero.” The video ends with a shot of Clapton congratulating Cale after their performance at the 2004 Crossroads Guitar Festival in Dallas.

lyrics

If on every ocean the ship is a throne
And for each mast cut down another sapling is grown
Then I could believe that I’m bound to find
A better life than I left behind But as you ascend the ladder
Look out below where you tread
For the colors bled as they overflowed
Red, white and blue
Green, white and gold So I had to leave from my country of birth
As for each child grown tall
Another lies in the earth
And for every rail we laid in the loam
There’s a thousand miles of the long journey home But as you ascend the ladder
Look out below where you tread
For the colors bled as they overflowed
Red, white and blue
Green, white and gold

Then came Short. I chose Life is too from the Scorpions . Scorpions are a German heavy metal band formed in 1965 in Hanover by Rudolf Schenker. Since the band’s inception, its musical style has ranged from hard rock to heavy metal. The lineup from 1979 to 1992 was the most successful incarnation of the group, and included Klaus Meine (vocals), Rudolf Schenker (rhythm guitar), Matthias Jabs (lead guitar), Francis Buchholz (bass), and Herman Rarebell (drums). The band’s only continuous member has been Schenker, although Meine has appeared on all of Scorpions’ studio albums, while Jabs has been a consistent member since 1979, and bassist Paweł Mąciwoda and drummer Mikkey Dee have been in the band since 2003 and 2016 respectively.

Life’s too Short is from their album Acoustica which was recorded during three concerts held in February 2001 at the Convento do Beato in Lisbon, Portugal. It was a most unusual set for the band, as Klaus Meine comments on the DVD. The group was supported by female backing vocalists, a percussionist, an extra guitarist, and Christian Kolonovits on keyboards. Kolonovits also collaborated on rearranging the songs for the acoustic set. He had previously worked with the band as a conductor and arranger on the Moment of Glory album.

Scorpions performed four new songs: “Life Is Too Short”, “Back to You”, “I Wanted to Cry” and “When Love Kills Love”, the last of which was released as a single. All the new songs were featured on the VHS, while “Back to You” and five others previously recorder songs were omitted from the CD.

Acoustica also contains cover versions of The Cars‘ “Drive”, Kansas‘ “Dust in the Wind”, and the Queen hit “Love of My Life”.

In 2003, an official ‘Platinum Edition’ was released by Warner Music Thailand, which coupled the original CD with a VCD. The VCD features behind-the-scenes and rehearsal footage as well as a band interview, conducted in English by a Thai television crew.

Next up is Small and I chose Just a small town girl by journey.

Journey is an American rock band that formed in San Francisco in 1973. At that time it was composed of former members of Santana, namely guitarist Neal Schon, who has remained with the band since its inception, and keyboardist Gregg Rolie, who served as primary lead vocalist for the band’s first three albums, and Frumious Bandersnatch, most notably bassist Ross Valory, who was with the band until 1985 and since 1995. In 1978, Steve Perry joined to serve as lead vocalist, and in 1980 Jonathan Cain replaced Rolie as keyboardist, and has remained a constant member since. The band’s strongest commercial success occurred between 1978 and 1987 at which time Perry departed.

The words “Don’t Stop Believin’ ” have served Jonathan Cain well in his lifetime. First, they were the words of encouragement he heard from his father, when the younger Cain wasn’t sure he’d make it as a musician in Hollywood.

Later, when he joined the ranks of Journey, it became the title and refrain of “Don’t Stop Believin’.” Released in 1981, it wasn’t the band’s biggest hit at first, but it’s gone on to become its signature, and one of the most popular rock songs of all time. Read more here.

*******

Next up and finally I am going for “Empire State Human” is a song by the British synthpop group The Human League. The song was written by Philip OakeyMartyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh. It was co-produced by The Human League and Colin Thurston, and recorded at Monumental Studios in Sheffield.[2]

The Human League are an English synth-pop[1] band formed in Sheffield in 1977. Initially an experimental electronic outfit, the group signed to Virgin Records in 1979 and later attained widespread commercial success with their third album Dare in 1981. The album contained four hit singles, including the UK/US number one hit “Don’t You Want Me.” The band received the Brit Award for Best British Breakthrough Act in 1982. Further hits followed throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s, including “Mirror Man,” “(Keep Feeling) Fascination,” “The Lebanon,” “Human” (a US No. 1) and “Tell Me When“.

Thank you Jim for taking me on a tour of great music from my life from the sixties through to the present.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE ☺️

Song Lyric Sunday. Inside Our Heads. 14/2/2021.

Hi everyone today is Valentine’s Day as well as Sunday. So I will wish you all a very happy day. Anywho it is Sunday and time for Jim Adam’s Song Lyric Sunday. Today’s prompt is Brain/Mind/Think …… So here we go .

So back to 1973, I was married and had one of the lads and we were living in Devon. Hubby was working long hours away so I was struggling a little on my own, in the middle of nowhere, no car, no support and few friends and a new baby…It would get even harder but it was all a learning curve, and I had the Floyd and Queen.. Number One son is still to this day a huge Pink Floyd Fan.

Brain Damage” is the ninth track[nb 1] from English rock band Pink Floyd‘s 1973 album The Dark Side of the Moon.[1][2] It was sung on record by Roger Waters (with harmonies by David Gilmour), who would continue to sing it on his solo tours. Gilmour sang the lead vocal when Pink Floyd performed it live on their 1994 tour (as can be heard on Pulse). The band originally called this track “Lunatic” during live performances and recording sessions.

When the band reconvened after the American leg of the Meddle tour, Roger Waters brought with him a prototype version of “Brain Damage” along with other songs such as “Money“. He had been playing the song during the recording of the Meddle album in 1971, when it was called “The Dark Side of the Moon”. Eventually this title would be used for the album itself. The song seemed to be partially inspired by their former band member Syd Barrett who had endured a mental breakdown. After road testing, the new suite entitled “A Piece for Assorted Lunatics”, the song was recorded in October along with “Any Colour You Like“. The piece represents Waters’ association with acoustic-tinged ballads, and along with “If” and “Grantchester Meadows“, “Brain Damage” uses a simple melody and delivery. David Gilmour actively encouraged Waters to sing the song, even though at this time he wasn’t particularly confident about his vocal abilities.[citation needed]

The song is somewhat slow, with a guitar arpeggio pattern similar to the Beatles‘ “Dear Prudence“. It is in the key of D major and features a recurring lyrical pattern and chorus.

Be Blessed Guys.

Song Lyric Sunday. February 7, 2021 – Colours. Blue, Gold and Silver.

Good morning everyone, it’s Sunday and time for Jim Adams our dashing host to bring us our weekly prompt for Song Lyric Sunday, which is Colors or as I and my compatriates will say Colours. Jim also reminds our original host Helen Vahdati set us this prompt in 2017, hi Helen how are you 💜.

So colours hum so many to choose from which way shall I go? Oh! Yes David Bowie, Sound and Vision, “Blue , blue electric blue” and I chose my favourite version on 2013. To start with.

Sound and Vision” by English singer-songwriter David Bowie which appeared on his 1977 album Low. The song is notable for juxtaposing an uplifting guitar and synthesizer-led instrumental track with Bowie’s withdrawn lyrics. In keeping with the minimalist approach of Low, Bowie and co-producer Tony Visconti originally recorded the track as an instrumental, bar the backing vocal (performed by Visconti’s wife, Mary Hopkin). Bowie then recorded his vocal after the rest of the band had left the studio, before trimming verses off the lyrics and leaving a relatively lengthy instrumental intro on the finished song. Selected as the first single from the album, “Sound and Vision” was used by the BBC on trailers at the time. This provided considerable exposure, much needed as Bowie opted to do nothing to promote the single himself, and helped the song to No. 3. The song was also a top ten hit in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. However, it stalled at No. 87 in Canada and only managed No. 69 in the United States, where it signaled the end of Bowie’s short commercial honeymoon until “Let’s Dance” in 1983.

In 2013, a remix was commissioned for the Sony Xperia Z smartphone advertising campaign.[12] The new mix by Sonjay Prabhakar utilized the original lead vocals and Mary Hopkin’s backing vocal with a new piano part by Rob Gentry. A Parlophone Records digital download was released on 7 October 2013.

Information from Wikipedia.

Here is the advert that made me fall in love with the song all over again 💜💜💜

Finally here is the original in all it glory ! With lots of photos and videos in this clip it is great! Wasn’t he so beautiful and talented!

In 1977 I had been married six years and had had two of my three lads. My husband’s job took him away a lot at no notice and he worked long hours when he was around. So Bowie and his ilk kept me sane.

“Sound And Vision”

Don’t you wonder sometimes
‘Bout sound and vision

Blue, blue, electric blue
That’s the colour of my room
Where I will live
Blue, blue

Pale blinds drawn all day
Nothing to do, nothing to say
Blue, blue

I will sit right down,
Waiting for the gift of sound and vision
And I will sing, waiting for the gift of sound and vision
Drifting into my solitude,
over my head

Don’t you wonder sometimes
‘Bout sound and vision.

Lyrics from AtoZ Lyrics.

Now we can’t just paint over Mary Hopkin she was an amazing singer too.

Mary Hopkin (born 3 May 1950), credited on some recordings as Mary Visconti (from her marriage to Tony Visconti), is a Welsh folk singer, best known for her 1968 UK number one single “Those Were the Days“. She was one of the earliest signings to the Beatles‘ Apple label.

circa 1968

Here is a song by her Gold and Silver ( also colours) from her 2013 Album Painting my Numbers.

As you can see she has a lovely voice too.

“Gold And Silver”

Dyin’ for the moment
When you lie again beside me
Taste the salty tears
I thought would never end

Gold and silver
Run your river deep inside me
Gold and silver stream
That glistens in my hand

Give me, give to me
Your gold and silver
Give me, give to me
Your gold, your silver

Too long apart
Our love is growin’ stronger
Two hearts, two souls
Run into one

Too soon, too fast
Our love is spillin’ over
I want you now
So take me down

Give me, give to me
Your gold and silver
Give me, give to me
Your gold, your silver.

Lyrics from AtoZ Lyrics

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE ☺️.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 6, 2021

Badge by Shelley Krupa

It’s Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “flag.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

The white flag is an internationally recognized protective sign of truce or ceasefire, and request for negotiation. It is also used to symbolise surrender, since it is often the weaker party which requests negotiation. It is also flown on ships serving as cartels. A white flag signifies to all that an approaching negotiator is unarmed, with an intent to surrender or a desire to communicate. Persons carrying or waving a white flag are not to be fired upon, nor are they allowed to open fire. The use of the flag to request parley is included in the Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907.

The first mention of the usage of white flags to surrender is made during the Eastern Han dynasty (AD 25–220). In the Roman Empire, the historian Cornelius Tacitus mentions a white flag of surrender in AD 109. Before that time, Roman armies would surrender by holding their shields above their heads. The white flag was widely used in the Middle Ages in Western Europe to indicate an intent to surrender. The colour white was used generally to indicate a person was exempt from combat; heralds bore white wands, prisoners or hostages captured in battle would attach a piece of white paper to their hat or helmet, and garrisons that had surrendered and been promised safe passage would carry white batons. Information from Wikipedia.

Okay Covid19 I am tired of all of this I am waving a white flag .

The Eddystone Light House.

Song Lyric Sunday: Odd/Even.

Here we are again and it’s Sunday. Time for Jim Adam’s Song Lyric Sunday. The prompt for this week is Odd or Even. I haven chosen to use even.

I have chosen a new artist and song to me. Luke Combs and a beautiful song Even Though I Am Leaving.

Luke Albert Combs  born March 2, 1990) is an American country music singer and songwriter. Combs has released two albums for Columbia Nashville, which have combined to produce 10 singles, all of which reached number one on Billboard‘s Country charts.

Combs, an only child, was born in Huntersville, North Carolina, the son of Rhonda and Chester Combs, and moved to Asheville, North Carolina at the age of 8. He has been performing as a vocalist since childhood. While attending A. C. Reynolds High School, Combs played football and performed with multiple vocal groups, including performing a solo in the world-renowned Carnegie Hall. Later, he attended Appalachian State University where he worked as a bouncer at a bar before gaining stage time in that same bar. He played his first country music show at the Parthenon Cafe. With less than a month left in his senior year, he dropped out to pursue his country music career. He later moved to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue a career in music.

Even Though I’m Leaving” is a song released in September 2019 as the second single to his second studio album, What You See Is What You Get. The song is described as a “soft, mandolin-infused country song” and “stone-cold tear-jerker” by the blog Taste of Country. Co-written by Combs along with Wyatt Durrette and Ray Fulcher, the song features a dramatic interaction between a father and son. In three different scenarios, the son, who is the narrator, pleads his father not to leave him. In the first verse, the narrator is a child who is afraid of monsters under his bed, while the second features the son as a young adult going off to serve in the military, and the final verse features the son becoming emotional over his father’s death.The song previously appeared on Combs’s 2019 EP The Prequel.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE.

Light a candle for the memory of the Holocaust.

Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com

At eight o’clock this evening we will light a candle to remember the Holocaust. Every year, those who lost their lives in the Holocaust are remembered and honoured on Holocaust Memorial Day.

The day is used to remember the six million Jews who were killed under Nazi persecutions as well as those who died in subsequent genocides of which sadly there are too many.

Please join us if you can we must never forget, we must never deny. It did happen it is still happening.

#JusJoJan prompt the 25th – “Specs”

Spics and Specks.

I need my specks to see where I am going, I also need my specks to see the specks of dust, on the table, lit up by the light coming through the window. .

I look out of said window and see specks on the horizon, are they birds, cars, planes or people or just specs of dust…I can’t tell because I need my specs to see!

This is part of LindaGHill’s Justjojan.
