September Music 11

For the month of September I am going to choose a piece of music or song and write a poem or alternative version. Jane Dougherty is doing a September Stanza here. And Kat Myrman is doing September a poem a day Here.

Today piece of music is The Theme to The World at War by Carl Davis.

My poem.

Small man, most evil

Made a nation do his will

Genocide his sin

The world was brought to it’s knees.

Fighting for all to be free.

Failed.

A Few of My Favorite Things: Music Theme for January

A few of  my favourite things, Deborah’s theme

Favourite ThingsWhat are my most favourite things well my family are up there .

They are very special and soon there will be one more !

My Wellington boots  are very special to me too

wpid-IMAG1814.jpgHappy days out walking the dogs with my sister in law who is an extra sister because I have known her since I was thirteen.

My sisters  and brothers mean so much to me I don’t know if they know because like all things we hold really  dear  we do not always tell them!

TO MY SISTERS AND MY FRIENDS

 

We may not be together but we are not far apart.

You my dearest sisters are never far from my heart.

We may stand on different shorelines separated by the sea and county

But we are never to far that my words cannot reach you and your thoughts cannot affected me.

The other night I spoke my grief I let out my pain. I put it here on line not realizing I’d cause you so much strain.

My selfish words hit you like a curse

And drew your heart strings tighter than a mean man’s purse.

So I write this to tell you, all my sister’s three.

I am whole and  still standing, so you need not fear for me.

My way may be dark and uncertain I am not sure of my road.

But to know you are all there, helps me balance this heavy load.

Also my dear friends who read my outpourings, who follow me every night

I really need to thank you have supported and helped me face this plight.

The clouds will some day soon be parting and I must choose my way

Step by step I shall make my way back to the light and a better day.

More of  my favourite  things WordPress and all my wonderful friends there on. I love to write it is  my life !!

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

Another favourite thing QUEEN

My favourite TV series Battle Star Galactica

 

My favorite character my hero

Starbuck 

Beneath this hard exterior there’s no soft marshmallow goo,  there beats a heart of stone.

There’s never been any support for me so what I’ve achieved I’ve done so on my own.

My parent’s never cared for me much so I never make any deep ties.

https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com

The only true love in my life is my star ship and the skies!

There is one man who could ever touch my soul but fate always intervenes ,

When I get together with Will Adarma  there’s usually ugly drunken scenes.

I think he only sees me as one of the lads,  so make out I don’t give a frack.

But I really fancy him, so ladies watch out or you’ll get my weapon in your back.

http://valleyroadrambler.files.wordpress.com/

We have to save the worlds from the evil Cylon attack

We had them beaten once , but they evolved and now they’re  coming back.

They have morphed  to chrome and blood all covered with skin.

They are clever now, they infiltrated Caprica  with spies

They blew up our worlds so we took the fleet and again flew into the skies.

In Space we regrouped and planned, and I got to work closely with my man.

I will lead what’s left of our pilots and beloved ships

I am the best star fighter pilot but the fracks won’t give me shoulder  pips.

It’s true I like a drink, gambling and a good cigar

I am damn good in bed I’ll give you a good time what ever rank you are!

http://25.media.tumblr.com/

I am the best pilot as I have said before

I shall find the Cylon’s mothership and give the frackers what for!

I’ll rip the skin off Number Six and I’ll show her no quarter.

She beat the living crap out of me and then denied me even water.

I’ll lead you all to safety find you all another world

For I am really an angel that keeps her wings unfurled!

I am that star you see at night  when it is darkest before the dawn.

I am the one who will shoot straightest so none of you need be forlorn.

I am the mighty Starbuck , Kara Thrace is my real name .

But what ever you call  me I shall save you all the fracking same!

Another favourite Thing  Chocolate

DEATH BY CHOCOLATE

 

It is warm and soothing as it covers me whole,

it is erasing my mind and stealing my soul.

I am happily drowning enjoying my fate

this is better than sex it can all of my yearnings sate.

It is finding every crack and crevice and entrance to me.

Filling me up , seeping in, tightening, sealing  me so I am no longer free.

 

They had warned me, they had told me to take care

Yet I just ignored them and so I am here drowning here laid bare.

Little did I know when that menu I read

And chose Death by Chocolate it meant what it said!

https://willowdot21.wordpress.com/2013/03/31/death-by-chocolate/

WELL I COULD CARRY ON  BUT I NEED MY BED

SO I SHALL END HERE AND LOVE AND LEAVE YOU FOR NOW AND GO REST MY WEARY HEAD!

Musical Theme : “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun”

Stars like Dice

She picked the stars up like dice

and threw them once and threw twice.

Till they were scattered in the sky,

an amazing mix to beguile the eye.

Then colouring a deep indigo

she made a stunning backdrop for the stars to show.

There was such a stunning light

and she decided to call it night.

She spread her arms out far and wide

and defied any soul to reach the other side.

All day she played at this

and every now an then she would ignite a sun with just a kiss.

Galaxy after Galaxy she set out within  her being.

She was unsure if she was travelling to, or fleeing.

Then she had a mad idea, made a planet green and blue

and planted the seed for me and you.

Eventually she got bored and looked for some new employment

she made oceans and land and all of that was  for our enjoyment.

But as she was growing tired

and  so she made something less inspired.

From within her tired mind

she created mankind.

ONCE UPON A MOON

Look at me sitting on the moon

watching stars as they past me, whizz and zoom.

I spent all day making more

you can count and keep a score.

I have attached by ribbons bright to my moon the most bright

so you can sit and view them tonight.

I have searched the the skies at night

for new stars out on their maiden flight.

I can see stories in this universe

so many things which cannot be reversed.

Rushing fast present, future past

the truths the lies the dye is cast.

Stars are golden, stars are bright

stars dance unendingly all through their life.

They see things we never dreamed of colours, vistas of dust

over millennia they have form a planets’ crust.

Stars are sparkly stars are light ….

if only we would  treat  them right

It was hard to leave, hard to understand

Some tried hard to save our Earth

The others ignored the facts out of hand.

Where once was green and plenty all was now dust and dearth.

I was not alone there were others of us there

Set upon this lonely moon

Destined , now to travel who knows where.

Afraid and frightened I sat marooned

TWINKLE TWINKLE

They told me the job was easy, the told me my days would be free

but the fact that it would take me eons to complete was the fact they kept from me.

They asked if I was serious, they inquired  if I was trustworthy, hard working and able to work alone.

They forgot to tell me my eyes would be completely boggled every morning when I got home.

They gave me a computer a pad and pen

and they threw in broadband but after that I did not hear from them again!

Their medical division offered me some dark glasses but I think that was a joke.

The scientific section got me a telescope. I was all excited with this job and so  full of hope.

They showed me my work station, it was in a field

they bought me in a ergonomic chair, across the grass it wheeled.

I was allowed two tea breaks and a 30 minute lunch

but definitely no coffee at my desk, and they threw in some coloured bands so I could keep my pens all in a bunch.

They gave me an umbrella in case there should be rain

and a little woolly hat just to protect my brain.

http://25.media.tumblr.com/

So now I was ready excited and inspired

I was determined to make them glad that it was me they had hired.

Now I hear your brain ticking I know what you want to know

what is it that my job is and why does it please me so.

I have to count the stars all of them up in the skies.

Which means I shall be busy every night with stars before my eyes!

 ps And now they have me working and my contract has begun

They have moved  the blooming goal posts  and they want me to also map  the Sun??!!

Musical Theme: Freedom

Today’s  theme is Freedom, so I have found  what I feel expresses freedom in  all it’s  for. Freedom  of love , the mind , the soul  and the body.

I hope I have dug  deep enough. The posts should be self explanatory.

Freedom Fortunes

cry Freedom
Cry Freedom is a 1987 British drama film directed by Richard Attenborough, set in the late 1970s, during the apartheid era
of South Africa. The screenplay was written by John Briley based on a pair of books by journalist Donald Woods.
The film centres on the real-life events involving black activist Steve Biko and his friend Donald Woods,
who initially finds him destructive, and attempts to understand his way of life. Denzel Washington stars as Biko,
while actor Kevin Kline portrays Woods. Cry Freedom delves into the ideas of discrimination, political corruption, and the
repercussions of violence. read more here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cry_Freedom

Roots
Colonial times[edit]
In The Gambia, West Africa, in 1750 Kunta Kinte is born to Omoro Kinte (Thalmus Rasulala), a Mandinka warrior,
and his wife, Binta (Cicely Tyson). When Kunta (LeVar Burton) reaches the age of 15, he and a group of other
adolescent boys take part in tribal manhood training, ending with a ceremony, after which they become recognized
as men and Mandinka warriors. While trying to carry out a task to catch a bird and take it home unharmed, Kunta
sees white men carrying firearms, along with their black collaborators. Later, while fetching wood outside his
village to make a drum for his younger brother, Kunta is captured by black collaborators under the direction of white men.
He is then sold to a slave trader and placed aboard a ship under the command of Capt. Thomas Davies (Edward Asner) for a
three-month journey to Colonial America. During the voyage a group of rebels among the human cargo try but fail to stage
a mutiny and to take over the ship.

The ship eventually arrives in Annapolis, Maryland, where the captured Africans are sold at auction as slaves. John Reynolds
(Lorne Greene), a plantation owner from Spotsylvania County, Virginia, near Fredericksburg, buys Kunta and gives him the name
Toby. Reynolds assigns an older slave, Fiddler (Louis Gossett Jr.), to teach Kunta to speak English and to train him in the ways
of living and working as a chattel slave. Kunta, in a persistent struggle to become free again, makes several unsuccessful
attempts to escape. Additionally, to preserve his Mandinka heritage and maintain his Mandinka roots, he does not want to change
his name. An overseer, Ames (Vic Morrow) gathers the slaves and directs one of them to whip Kunta after his latest attempt to
escape and to continue whipping him until he finally acknowledges his new name.

Musical Themes : Colours

Todays theme is Colours and was picked by http://johnnyojanpera.wordpress.com/, don’t miss his entry and those of
http://bearspawprint.wordpress.com/ and http://47whitebuffalo.wordpress.com/

So here we go my kalidoscope of colours!

Yellow is the colour : “Colours” is a song written and recorded by British singer-songwriter Donovan.
The “Colours” single was released in the United Kingdom on May 28, 1965 through Pye Records (Pye 7N 15866)
and a few months later in the United States through Hickory Records (Hickory 45-1324). The “Colours” single
was backed with “To Sing for You” (previously included on What’s Bin Did and What’s Bin Hid) on the United Kingdom
release and “Josie” (from What’s Bin Did and What’s Bin Hid) on the United States release.

Paint It Black” is a song released by The Rolling Stones on 13 May 1966 as the first single from the US version of
their fourth album Aftermath. Although originally titled without a comma, the release version was styled “Paint It, Black”. Keith Richards has stated that the comma was added by the record label, Decca.
The song was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Mick Jagger wrote the lyrics and Keith Richards wrote the music.
Bill Wyman claims in his books that the song was a group effort although it was credited to Jagger/Richards.
The single reached number one in both the United States and the United Kingdom charts in 1966. In 2004 it was ranked  number 176 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In the US and UK, it was the first number one single to feature a sitar.

Fields of gold Eva Cassidy : Though I have picked the Eva Cassidy version “Fields of Gold” is a 1993 song by Sting from his album Ten Summoner’s Tales. “Fields of Gold” and all the other album tracks were recorded at Lake House, Wiltshire,mixed at The Townhouse Studio, London, England and mastered at Masterdisk, New York. The harmonica solo is played by Brendan Power, and the Northumbrian smallpipes are played by Kathryn Tickell. The music video was directed by Kevin Godley.

It was also a hit in many countries including Ireland, Germany, The Netherlands and Switzerland and many others.
The song was included in Sting’s first compilations album issued by Sting under the title Fields of Gold: The Best of  Sting 1984–1994 and released in 1994 and in a later compilation The Very Best of Sting & The Police in 1997.
It was also re-recorded by Sting in 2006 as a bonus track for his classical album Songs from the Labyrinth, whereby the song was accompanied entirely by a lute.

Whiter Shade of Pale sung here by Annie lennox : “A Whiter Shade of Pale” is the debut single by the
English rock band Procol Harum, released 12 May 1967. The record reached number one in the UK Singles

10 million copies worldwide.
With its haunting Bach-derived instrumental melody, soulful vocals, and unusual lyrics—by the song’s
co-authors Gary Brooker,Keith Reid,and organist Matthew Fisher

Beatles Baby’s in Black :”Baby’s in Black” is a song by the Beatles,
co-written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The song appears on the United Kingdom album Beatles for Sale
and in North America on Beatles ’65.

T Rex Ride a White Swan :”Ride a White Swan” is a song by the British underground (and later glam rock) act T. Rex
which became their first hit single in 1970. Like all of the band’s songs, it was written by the group’s singer,
guitarist and founder Marc Bolan.
When Bolan died in a car crash in 1977, a mourner paid tribute to Bolan by laying a large swan made of flowers
among the floral tributes on display at Golders Green Crematorium in North London, where his funeral was held.
The song is one of many T. Rex tracks which feature in the film Billy Elliot.

counting crow big yellow taxi :”Big Yellow Taxi” is a song written and originally recorded by Joni Mitchell in 1970.
It was a hit in her native Canada (No. 14) as well as Australia (No. 6) and the UK (No. 11). It only reached No. 67
in the US in 1970, but was later a bigger hit there for her in a live version released in 1975, which peaked at No. 24.
Charting versions have also been recorded by The Neighborhood (who had the original top US 40 hit with the track in 1970,
peaking at No. 29), Maire Brennan, Amy Grant and Counting Crows.

Nena, is a German singer and actress. She rose to international fame in 1983 with the New German Wave song “99 Luftballons”.

Cherry Pink And Apple Blossom White – Pérez PradoTrumpet Solo By Sal Grippaldi (Redsal09)
WMV and Info by Robert Silvestri:

Blue Jay way “Blue Jay Way” is a song written by George Harrison; it was first recorded and released
by the Beatles on their Magical Mystery Tour album and EP in 1967.The name of the song comes from a street located high
in the Hollywood Hills West, Los Angeles overlooking Sunset Strip where George Harrison rented a house at Blue Jay Way
during August 1967. The home affords panoramic views of Hollywood and much of the Los Angeles Basin. It is located on a
hillside of narrow, winding roads, difficult to navigate on a foggy night — thus creating the backdrop for the opening
lines of the song:”There’s a fog upon L.A., and my friends have lost their way.”

Green Earing steely Dan The Royal Scam is the fifth album by Steely Dan, originally released by ABC Records in 1976.
The album went gold and peaked at #15 on the charts. The Royal Scam features more prominent guitar work than other
Steely Dan albums. Guitarists on the recording include Walter Becker, Denny Dias, Larry Carlton, Elliott Randall and
Dean Parks.
The mood of the album stands in contrast with the band’s more mellow and hugely successful follow-up, Aja.
In common with other Steely Dan albums, The Royal Scam is littered with cryptic allusions to people and events both real
and fictional. In a BBC interview in 2000,[2] Becker and Fagen revealed that “Kid Charlemagne” is loosely based on
Augustus Owsley Stanley, the notorious drug “chef” who was famous for manufacturing hallucinogenic compounds, and that
“Caves of Altamira” is about the loss of innocence, the narrative about a visitor to the Cave of Altamira who registers
his astonishment at the prehistoric drawings.

Red Shoes Kate Bush is the seventh studio album by the British musician Kate Bush. Released in November
1993, it was accompanied by Bush’s short film, The Line, the Cross and the Curve, and was her last album before taking
a 12-year hiatus. The album peaked at no.2 in the UK album chart and has been certified Platinum by the BPI for over
300,000 copies shipped. In the US, the album reached #28, her highest chart position there to date.

THE CARPENTERS – RAINBOW CONNECTION “Rainbow Connection” is a song written by Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher and
originally performed by the character of Kermit the Frog (Jim Henson) in The Muppet Movie in 1979.

Snow White Queen – Evanescence
Snow white queen evanescence Snow White Queen” was inspired after Lee had experiences with stalkers.
She stated, “My privacy had been completely invaded and there were a couple of nights where I couldn’t
stay at my house. So I wrote a song about it through the eyes of the stalker, and with my perspective, too.
Entertainment Weekly’s Jon Dolan found similarities between the song and Tori Amos’ “Me and a Gun”. It uses
several industrial beats into its composition.
Amy sings her lowest note in this song during the line: “Can’t escape the twisted way you think of me.”

A six-time Grammy Award winner[1] and three-time Academy Award winner,[2] he is known for his popular hit songs and compositions from the late 1950s through the 1980s, many with lyrics written by Hal David as part of the duoBacharach and David. WellBurt Bacharach  wrote the song but Dionne Warwick sang this version mentioning  all or well most of our modes of travel,

Road to Hell Chris Rea : Chris Rea (/ˈrə/ ree; born Christopher Anton Rea, 4 March 1951)[1] is an English singer-songwriter, recognisable for his distinctive, husky voice and slide guitar playing.[2] The British Hit Singles & Albums stated that Rea was “one of the most popular UK singer-songwriters of the late 1980s.

Chaiyya Chaiyya :  “Chaiyya Chaiyya” (English: [walk] in shade) is an Indian song from the 1998 Hindi film Dil Se.. directed by Mani Ratnam. The song was composed by A.R. Rahman, written by Gulzar, and sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi. It quickly became popular upon release and its music video gained the same status, partly because it was filmed on a moving train. The Urduversion of the song is called “Chaiyya Chaiyya”, while the Tamil version is called “Thaiyya Thaiyya”. This is not only about travelling  on a train it is the most wonderful song and video , it always lifts my mood!

Led Zeppelin Stairway to heaven : “Stairway to Heaven” is a song by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, released in late 1971. It was composed by guitaristJimmy Page and vocalist Robert Plant for the band’s untitled fourth studio album (often referred to as Led Zeppelin IV). It is often referred to as one of the greatest rock songs of all time.[2][3][4]   Wikipedia      The travel is really in the groups name Zeppelin   but they are on a stairway going to heaven. 

Gerry and the Pacemakers : “Ferry Cross the Mersey” (sometimes written Ferry ‘Cross the Mersey) is a song written by Gerry Marsden. It was first recorded by his band Gerry and the Pacemakers and released in late 1964 in the UK and in 1965 in the United States. It was a hit on both sides of the Atlantic, reaching number six in the United States[2] and number eight in the UK.[3] The song is from thefilm with the same name and was released on its soundtrack album. In the mid-1990s a musical theatre production also titledFerry Cross the Mersey related Gerry Marsden’s Merseybeat days; it premiered in Liverpool and played in the UK, Australia, and Canada.  This beautiful song takes to  the water travel and the Ferry. This too is one of my most favourite songs.
