Memories of different times!

The Voice” is a song by Irish singer Eimear Quinn that was the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 1996, representing Ireland. The music was composed, and the lyrics were written, by Brendan Graham, who had also written and composed “Rock ‘n’ Roll Kids“, the Irish winner from the 1994 contest. The victory, which was Ireland’s fourth in five years, was their seventh (and to date last) contest victory, which remains a record for the most contests won by a single country.

Celtic Woman is an all-female Irish musical ensemble conceived and created by David Kavanagh, Sharon Browne and David Downes, a former musical director of the Irish stage show Riverdance. In 2004, Downes recruited five Irish female musicians who had not previously performed together, vocalists Chloë Agnew, Órla Fallon, Lisa Kelly and Méav Ní Mhaolchatha, and fiddler Máiréad Nesbitt, as the first lineup of the group that he named “Celtic Woman”. Downes chose a repertoire that ranged from traditional Celtic tunes to modern songs.
They released the voice in 2007.

This is a great song , Charlie Puth he’s such a Hugh talent.

We Don’t Talk Anymore” is a song by American singer-songwriter Charlie Puth, featuring vocals from fellow American singer Selena Gomez. It was released on May 24, 2016,nas the third single from Puth’s debut studio album, Nine Track Mind. The artists wrote the song with Jacob Kasher Hindlin. Musically, it is a pop song with Puth’s tropical-inspired production. The song peaked at number nine on the US Billboard Hot 100, earning Puth his second top-10 single and Gomez’s sixth and Puth’s second highest-charting single as a lead artist to date, behind “Attention“. It has also attained the top 10 positions in more than 20 countries, and reached number one in Italy, Lebanon and Romania.

Puth created the guitar line during a trip in Japan. He produced the beat in the Philippines and recorded his vocals in Los Angeles. Months later Puth played the song for Selena Gomez, whom he had met previously at an after party following the MTV Video Music Awards. He thought that their voices would complement each other well and then asked her to sing the second verse. Gomez’s vocals were recorded in Puth’s closet. Her recording session lasted approximately 15 minutes. On December 10, 2015, Puth posted a snippet of the song announcing the collaboration with Gomez.nOn January 10, 2016, Puth posted a second teaser.

I really love this song 💜

More Than Words” is a song by American rock band Extreme, released as the fifth track and third single from their second album, Pornograffitti (1990), in March 1991. It is a ballad built around acoustic guitar work by Nuno Bettencourt and the vocals of Gary Cherone (with harmony vocals from Bettencourt). The song is a detour from the funk metal style that permeates the band’s records. As such, it has often been described as “a blessing and a curse” due to its overwhelming success and recognition worldwide, but the band ultimately embraced it and plays it at every show.

The song is a ballad in which the singer wants his lover to do more to prove her love other than saying the phrase “I love you.” Bettencourt described it as a warning that the phrase was becoming meaningless: “People use it so easily and so lightly that they think you can say that and fix everything, or you can say that and everything’s OK. Sometimes you have to do more and you have to show it—there’s other ways to say ‘I love you.'”

“That song gave us the freedom to make the record we really wanted to make when we started recording our third disc,” Cherone told KNAC. “It got us doing huge tours all over the states and around the world… As the nineties went on, however, we really started to resent the song. We were tagged ‘the More Than Words guys’. We didn’t like the perception the song created about the band. I remember being on tour with Aerosmith in Poland… it was on that tour we decided we would not play the song. We just didn’t do it. A couple nights into the tour, Steven Tyler writes in big letters on our dressing room door, ‘Play the fucking song!’ His attitude was almost father-like. He was like, ‘Look, this is your first time in Poland. When do you think you will be back? They want to hear it, so play it!'”

I remember my first Sony Walkman with great affection!

Wired for Sound is a studio album by Cliff Richard, released in September 1981. The album peaked at number 4 in the UK album charts upon release, and spent a total of 25 weeks on the chart in 1981–82. The album was certified Platinum by the BPI, and achieved global sales of over one million.

.

The title track was released as the lead single of the album, and was followed up by a cover of Shep and the Limelites 1961 US doo-wop hit, “Daddy’s Home”. The singles peaked at numbers 4 and 2 respectively on the UK singles chart.”Daddy’s Home” was held off number 1 for four consecutive weeks by the Human League‘s “Don’t You Want Me”, but earned gold certification from the BPI for sales over half a million. The track was recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon on 1 May 1981, for a rock ‘n’ roll special to be broadcast later by BBC Television.

“Broken Doll” is a cover of a Wreckless Eric single from 1980. Reportedly, Richard also wanted to record Eric’s “(I’d Go The) Whole Wide World” too, but only if he could change some of the lyrics – which Eric refused.[3] “Young Love” was given new lyrics and retitled “The Last Kiss” for a cover version by David Cassidy featuring George Michael. It was released as the lead single for Cassidy’s 1985 album Romance, becoming a top ten hit in the UK and Germany. “Once in a While” was originally recorded by Leo Sayer on his 1980 album Living in a Fantasy and released as a single in the UK and Australia.

The promotional video for the title track is one of Richard’s best-known, and was filmed around the centre of Milton Keynes, the new town in Buckinghamshire that was developed after the Second World War. It features Richard walking around and on rollerskates, while listening to music on a Walkman cassette player; such devices were then newly available in the UK.

remastered version of the album was issued in July 2001, with the B-sides of both singles included as bonus tracks.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday: Onomatopoeia

 

This  is  part  of  LindaGHill‘s Stream of Consciousness Saturday

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Boom bang  crash  went  the  thunder, the  windows  thudded  shut, the  house creaked!

Lightening  filled  the  room  with white light making  everything  look  ghostly.

There  was  a  deafening  crash  that  shook  the place until the pip  squeaked!

I was  not  afraid   because  I  am so brave ….. mostly!

 

The Birds  had  stopped  their  twittering  but  the  animals were  going mad

The  dogs  barked, the  cats  meowed  the  mice had  run off  sqeaking   see ya!

It  was like a mad house  full of noise  and  fear things  going from worse  to  bad!

A clap of  thunder, the  dictionary  fell to  the floor  revealing  the  word  ONOMOTAPOEIA!

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance,  Linda  will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” or “Begin with the word ‘The’.”

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that Linda  and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of Linda’s post into yours.  Your link will show up in Linda’s comments, for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on Linda’s post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. Have fun!
