Two songs to lift our spirits.

Well good afternoon everyone, I feel like raising spirits today …. Not Bacardi, I shall leave that to Morgarna , though at the moment she may have to make do with Dark Rum.

Right I am sliding off piste here. I want to actually raising our spirits as in realising we are all special we are all heroes . I know many of us have problems, illness, mental and physical, money worries of many kinds, relationship problems and everything fate wants to throw at us.

So here is today’s lesson coming to us straight from our Sam Ryder. Two songs both with wonderful messages for all of us.

I am a mountain and down in the valley is all that I’ve overcome”

Below is the story of one of the young dancers from Sam’s video like all the others she has a disability and over come it.

The video is up lifting as are the lyrics so do have a look at them if you can’t make them out.

Rough seas might pull me under and
Dark clouds might dim my days
But there’s always bright tomorrows when
I close my eyes and say
“Remember how you’ve made it through the fire
Remember how you’ve come so far
An unstoppable force of nature
Yeah, that’s what you are”

[Pre-Chorus]
I know all that I have lost
Has given me the purpose of
Conquering my pain through love
I sing this hymn to rise above

[Chorus]
I am a mountain
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
All that I’ve overcome, woah
I am a mountain
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
All that I’ve oh-oh-overcome-ome
Oh-oh-overcome-ome
I’m a fighter, it’s like I was born to be one

[Verse 2]
Whatever life may throw, I’ll pass the test
Whatever fate might dream upon me next
I’ll stand with my head to the sky
Unshaken by thunder and winds and the tide

[Pre-Chorus]
I know all that I have lost
Has given me the purpose of
Conquering my pain through love
I sing this hymn to rise above

[Chorus]
I am a mountain (Ah, yeah)
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
All that I’ve overcome, woah
I am a mountain (I am a mountain)
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
All that I’ve oh-oh-overcome-ome (Alright)
Oh-oh-overcome
Oah

[Chorus]
I am a mountain (Hey)
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
All that I’ve overcome, woah
I am a mountain
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
(It’s all that I’ve, all that I’ve, all that I’ve, all that I’ve overcome)
All that I’ve oh-oh-overcome-ome (Yeah)
Oh-oh-overcome-ome (It’s all that I’ve overcome)
Oh-oh-overcome-ome (It’s all that I’ve overcome)
Oh-oh-overcome-ome
I’m a fighter, it’s like I was born to be one

Lyric Genius written and co-produced by Ryder along with Jimbo Barry and Lewis Allen. 

What the second song is about in Sam’s own words .

‚ÄúThis is a song for the hope seekers & the faith keepers. The ones who foster the dream and keep its fire burning regardless of the knock backs, the almosts, the falls & the failures.”

Fought & Lost”
(feat. Brian May)

Congratulations on your jubilation
Our hearts are breaking underneath all the applause
This devastation is of our own making
But we’ve never tasted this much bitterness before

And everybody falls
But some of us are born to fight, and fight, and fight some more

So, we will see you here
Same time, same place, next year
And you may win this battle but you’ll never win the war
Better to have fought and lost than never fought at all

Go take a bow
Your audience is waiting
We’ll take the shadows since the limelight isn’t ours
We wanted it so bad
Gave it all we had
Oh, but wanting, it doesn’t always make it yours

This time was ours to lose
But fortune favours those who ride the storm and make it through

So, we will see you here
Same time, same place, next year
And you can take this battle ’cause we’re gonna win the war
Better to have fought and lost than never fought at all

So, here on the same ground
When the tables have turned around
Oh, and your tears fall as your world is crashing down
I hope, when you see me
You remember that feeling
Oh, ’cause we’ve both seen the world from both sides now

And everybody falls
And life will tear you down to show you what’s worth fighting for

Oh, we will see you here
Same time, same place, next year
And you may win this battle but you’ll never win the war
Better to have fought and lost than never fought at all
Better to have fought and lost than never fought at all

Ato Z Lyrics

Love Is In Da Blog

Today is Day eight of Bee Halton’s Love Is In Da Blog and our prompt is A Love Song from a New Artist (becoming known in 2022/2023. Well I have chosen Sam Ryder singing All the way over . It’s a song about going through a break down in a relationship. The girl is fine and moved on but the guy still loves her.

Well you know if I love a singer I love them and play them all over the place. Now I love Sam not only does he write his own songs and has a fantastic range, he plays guitar, he can also sing any song from any genre, as the second video shows this, Sam singing in the shed. Do have a listen to the whole clip of you can he really can sing! Especially Never Be Enough from the Greatest Showman.

Last year Sam represented us at the Eurovision Song Contest and he came second to Ukraine. We had been getting Nil Points for years… I shall not attempt to say why. So her he singing at the Eurovision Song Contest.

So Everyone Sam Is In Da Blog ūüíúūüíúūüíúūüíú

Song Lyric Sunday: Following in Father’s footsteps. Following the dear old man.

Jim Adams

It’s Sunday again and time for Jim Adam’s Song Lyric Sunday. It’s November 6, 2022 ‚Äď This week’s prompt is Songs from artists who have famous musician parents, suggested by Paula of Light Motifs II.

I have chosen Dhani Harrison son of George Harrison. Dhani is very much his father’s son.


Dhani Harrison¬†(/ňąd√¶ni/; born 1 August 1978) is a British musician, composer and singer-songwriter. He is the only child of¬†George¬†and¬†Olivia Harrison. Dhani debuted as a professional musician assisting in recording his father’s final album,¬†Brainwashed, and completing it with the assistance of¬†Jeff Lynne¬†after his father’s death in November 2001.¬†Harrison formed his own band,¬†thenewno2, in 2002 and has performed at festivals,

Harrison was born on 1 August 1978 at HRH Princess Christian‚Äôs Hospital in¬†Windsor, Berkshire.[9]¬†He grew up with his parents in¬†Henley-on-Thames, in¬†Friar Park, the estate on which his father had lived since 1970. His mother, Olivia Harrison, is an American of Mexican descent. One of Harrison’s earliest memories, from the age of six, is receiving a drumming lesson from his father’s friend and bandmate, “Uncle”¬†Ringo Starr. He recalled that before the lesson, he had been an avid drummer. However, when Starr began to play, the loud noise frightened him so much that he ran out of the room screaming.

Harrison attended Dolphin School near Twyford, a Montessori method school, followed by Badgemore Primary School, Henley-On-Thames. He later attended Shiplake College, also near Henley, where he enrolled in the Combined Cadet Force, and showed a keen interest in rowing which continued into his later years.

Harrison is an alumnus of¬†Brown University, where he studied industrial design and physics, earning a bachelor’s degree. Harrison pursued a career as a car designer at¬†McLaren Automotive¬†before deciding to follow in his father’s footsteps as a professional musician.

Tapping toes move so fast, flying  light

High heel shoes blonde  hair eyes  so bright

All made up with skirts in flight

He is  smart,so dapper

In his spats so  white

Dancing the night

Amazing

There she stands upon her wall calmly looking out on us all.

Big brown eyes that cannot see beyond her recess. Yet there is a spirit that yearns to be free.

She will just watch the world passing by, the highs the lows she will never question why.

So when you hurry home from work tired and cold look out for her and others like her, that share the quirk.

I warn you¬† now beware she is trouble don’t look to deeply into her eyes. Stride on keep walking hurry, hurry don’t listen too hard or you will hear her cry.

Alone out there in all weather her calm elusive aura keeps her together. I wander what she would do if she was let loose amid me and you. Such deep knowledge in her eyes she looks as if she has the answer to all the ‘whys’.

If you ever pass her, stop and look closely she is amazing and she is clever!
