Santa Claus Go Straight To The Ghetto



Santa Clause, go straight to the ghetto.
Pitch up your reindeer. Uh!
Go straight to the ghetto.
Santa Clause, go straight to the ghetto.


And every stockings you buy,
The kids are gonna love you. So, Uh!


Leave a toy for Johnny.
Leave a dog for Mary.
Leave something pretty for Donnie.
And don't forget about Gary.
...
You know that I know that you will see
Cause' that was once. Me.


Hit it! Hit it!
You see mothers and soul brothers.


Santa Clause, go straight to the ghetto.
Santa Clause, oh lord, go straight to the ghetto.
And every stockings you buy,
The kids are gonna love you.


So, pick up a stocking you find.
You'll know they need you.
So, I'm begging you Santa Clause,
Go straight to the ghetto.


If anyone wanna know,
Tell him James Brown told you.


So, Santa Clause, go straight to the ghetto.
Never thought I realized, I'll be singing a song
With one of you. My!
Santa Clause, go straight to the ghetto.


Don't leave nothing for me.
I have you. Can't you see?
Santa Clause, go straight to the ghetto.
Santa Clause, the soul brothers need you.


So, Santa Clause, tell him James Brown sent you...


Στίχοι

Σε αυτό το τραγούδι δεν μπορώ να ξεχωρίσω κάποιο στίχο. Όλοι τους είναι τόσο σημαντικοί και τόσο ξεχωριστοί.
Ας γίνει έτσι όπως λέει το τραγούδι, Αγιε-Βασίλη πήγαινε κατευθείαν στα παιδιά του κάθε γκέτο, της κάθε γειτονιάς που σε έχει ανάγκη, που σε περιμένει με λαχτάρα. Πήγαινε σε κάθε φίλο σε κάθε φίλη και φέρτου δώρο αυτό που επιθυμεί πιο πολύ. Δώσε, μοίρασε αγάπη παντού! Παντού! Δεν θέλω τίποτα για μένα, γιατί εγώ έχω εσένα Αγιε-Βασίλη!
Έτσι λέει το τραγούδι!

Driving Home For Christmas



Driving home for Christmas
Oh, I can't wait to see those faces

I'm driving home for Christmas, yea
Well I'm moving down that line
And it's been so long
But I will be there
I sing this song
To pass the time away
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas

Gotthard - Merry Christmas


No One Here, No One There
I See Desolation Everywhere
Just Run Out Of Tears To Cry

Its Getting Colder Every Day
In This God Forgotten World I Pray
As I Look Up To The Sky

Is There Something I Can Do?
To Give Back Hope To This Horizon
Close My Eyes,
As If It Would Stop The Rain On Me.
I Can't Get My Fears Away
With Those Words I Hear You Say

Wish You All A Merry Christmas
Wish You All A Great New Year
Hope You Save A Thought For Something That Is True
I Wish A Merry Christmas To You!

Greeting Cards, That You Read
You Got Everything You Really Need
In Your World Of Red N'white

Flying High Right To The Sun
But The Sparkle In Your Eyes Has Gone
It's So Easy To Forget

Is There Something I Can Do? (Is There Something I Can Do?)
I Don't Wanna Weep In Silence ( I Don't Wanna Weep In Silence)
There's No Such Blindman
When You Just Don't Want To See
But I Can't Ease My Pain Today
With The Words I Hear You Say

Wish You All A Merry Christmas
Wish You All A Great New Year
Hope You Save A Thought For Something That Is True
I Wish A Merry Christmas To You!

Καλά Χριστούγεννα!




Ἡ παρθένος σήμερον
τὸν ὑπερούσιον τίκτει
καὶ ἡ γῆ τὸ σπήλαιον
τῷ ἀπροσίτῳ προσάγει.
Ἄγγελοι μετὰ ποιμένων
δοξολογοῦσι·
Μάγοι δὲ μετὰ ἀστέρος
ὁδοιποροῦσι·
δι’ ἡμᾶς γὰρ ἐγεννήθη
παιδίον νέον, ὁ πρὸ αἰώνων Θεός.

Κοντάκιον Ἁγ. Ρωμανοῦ τοῦ Μελῳδοῦ. 




Χρόνια πολλά σε όλους!
Η γέννηση του Χριστού, να φέρει στις καρδιές μας
ευλογία, αγάπη, ειρήνη, ελπίδα.


Καλά Χριστούγεννα!

Kamelot ft. Simone Simons - The Haunting



Merely the sound of your voice
Made me believe that you were her
Just like the river disturbs
...my inner peace
Once I believed I could find
Just a trace of her beloved soul
Once I believed she was all
Then she smothered my beliefs


One cold winter's night
I may follow her voice to the river


Somewhere in time
I will find you and haunt you again
Like the wind sweeps the earth
Somewhere in time
When no virtues are left to defend
You fall


Don't pretend that I've been loving you
Once I believed she was gone
But I'm corrupted from within


(Leave leave me for now and forever
Leave what you can)


Somewhere in time
I will find you and haunt you again

Nightwish - Nemo


...
Oh how I wish
For soothing rain
All I wish is to dream again
My loving heart
Lost in the dark
For hope I'd give my everything

My flower
Withered between
The pages two and three
The once and forever bloom gone with my sins
...

Nightwish - Ever Dream



Ever felt away with me
Just once that all I need
Entwined in finding you one day

Ever felt away without me
My love, it lies so deep
Ever dream of me

Would you do it with me
Heal the scars and change the stars
Would you do it for me
Turn loose the heaven within

I'd take you away
Castaway on a lonely day
Bosom for a teary cheek
My song can but borrow your grace

Come out, come out wherever you are
So lost in your sea
Give in, give in for my touch
For my taste for my lust

Your beauty cascaded on me
In this white night fantasy

Blind Guardian- Mirror Mirror



Blind Guardian- Mirror Mirror

Far, far beyond the island
We dwelt in shades of twilight
Through dread and weary days
Through grief and endless pain


It lies unknown
The land of mine
A hidden gate
To save us from the shadow fall
The lord of water spoke
In the silence
Words of wisdom
I've seen the end of all
Be aware the storm gets closer


chorus (1):
Mirror Mirror on the wall
True hope lies beyond the coast
You're a damned kind can't you see
That the winds will change
Mirror Mirror on the wall
True hope lies beyond the coast
You're a damned kind can't you see
That tomorrows bears insanity


Gone's the wisdom
Of a thousand years
A world in fire and chains and fear
Leads me to a place so far
Deep down it lies my secret vision
I better keep it safe


Shall I leave my friends alone
Hidden in my twilight hall
(I) know the world is lost in fire
Sure there is no way to turn it
Back to the old days
Of bliss and cheerful laughter
We're lost in barren lands
Caught in the running flames
Alone
How shall we leave the lost road
Time's getting short so follow me
A leader's task so clearly
To find a path out of the dark


chorus (2):
Mirror Mirror on the wall
True hope lies beyond the coast
You're a damned kind can't you see
That the winds will change
Mirror Mirror on the wall
True hope lies beyond the coast
You're a damned kind can't you see
That the winds will change


Even though
The storm calmed down
The bitter end
Is just a matter of time


Shall we dare the dragon
Merciless he's poisoning our hearts
Our hearts


How shall we leave the lost road
Time's getting short so follow me
A leader's task so clearly
To find a path out of the dark


chorus (2)

Nightwish - The Islander



An old man by a sea shore at the end of day
Gazes the horizon with sea winds in his face.
Tempest-tossed island, seasons all the same.
Anchorage unpainted and a ship without a name.

Sea without a shore for the vanished one unheard
He lightens the beacon, light at the end of world.
Showing the way, lighting hope in their hearts,
The ones and their travels homeward from afar.

[Chorus:]
This is for long-forgotten light at the end of the world.
Horizon's crying the tears he left behind long ago.

The albatross is flying, making him daydream
The time before he became - one of the world`s unseen
Princess in the tower, children in the fields -
Life gave him it all: an island of the universe.

Now his love`s a memory, a ghost in the fog.
He sets the sails one last time saying farewell to the world.
Anchor to the water, seabed far below,
Grass still in his feet and a smile beneath his brow.

[Chorus x2]

Yasmin Levy - La Alegria



Yasmin Levy - La Alegria


yo bebo y bebo y bebo para olvidarte
yo duermo y duermo y duermo para no pensar
maldito mundo
vivir para pagar por el pecado de amarte
maldita tu
sueltame


te digo que vida no tengo
y es por tu culpa
las noches igual que los días
de soledad
oh dio mio
ayúdame para matar este amor
que está en mi corazón
bendito dio sálvame


solo caminando en el camino de este mundo
y no tengo más fuerza para luchar
pensaba que amarte fue el remedio del dolor
pero el dolor se hizo grande más y más
te dejo para siempre vida mia no te olvides
que soy hombre que existe para ti
y el cante de mi vida te regalo para siempre
hasta que llegue el día del morir

Roxette - Listen To Your Heart

All Tomorrow's Parties



Calexico & Iron and Wine - All Tomorrow's Parties

And what costume shall the poor girl wear
To all tomorrow's parties
A hand-me-down dress from who knows where
To all tomorrow's parties

And where will she go and what shall she do
When midnight comes around
She'll turn once more to Sunday's clown
And cry behind the door

And what costume shall the poor girl wear
To all tomorrow's parties
Why silks and linens of yesterday's gowns
To all tomorrow's parties

And what will she do with Thursday's rags
When Monday comes around
She'll turn once more to Sunday's clown
And cry behind the door

And what costume shall the poor girl wear
To all tomorrow's parties
For Thursday's child is Sunday's clown
For whom none will go mourning

A blackened shroud, a hand-me-down gown
Of rags and silks, a costume
Fit for one who sits and cries
For all tomorrow's parties

Χαλίλ Γκιμπράν, Ο Κήπος του Προφήτη

Για τα παιδιά…


Τα παιδιά σου δεν είναι παιδιά σου
Είναι οι γιοι και οι κόρες της λαχτάρας της Ζωής για τη Ζωή.
Δημιουργούνται διαμέσου εσένα, αλλά όχι από σένα
Κι αν και βρίσκονται μαζί σου, δε σου ανήκουν.
Μπορείς να τους δώσεις την αγάπη σου, αλλά όχι τις σκέψεις σου
Αφού ιδέες έχουν δικές τους.
Μπορείς να δίνεις μια στέγη στο σώμα τους, αλλά όχι και στις ψυχές τους
Αφού οι ψυχές τους κατοικούν στο σπίτι του αύριο
που εσύ δεν πρόκειται να επισκεφτείς ούτε και στα όνειρά σου.
Μπορείς να προσπαθήσεις να τους μοιάσεις
αλλά μη γυρέψεις να τα κάνεις σαν εσένα
Αφού η ζωή δεν πάει προς τα πίσω ούτε ακολουθεί στο δρόμο του το χτες
Είσαι το τόξο από το οποίο τα παιδιά σου
ωσάν ζωντανά βέλη ξεκινάνε για να πάνε μπροστά.
Ο τοξότης βλέπει το ίχνος της τροχιάς προς το άπειρο
και κομπάζει ότι με τη δύναμή του
τα βέλη του μπορούν να πάνε γρήγορα και μακριά.
Άς χαροποιεί τον τοξοτή ο κομπασμός του
Αφού ακόμα κι αν αγαπάει το βέλος που πετάει
έτσι αγαπά και το βέλος που μένει στάσιμο».

Vera Domínguez - Le Spleen



When you wake me up
take me for a ride
can you realize that
I love the way you drive.

When you take downtown,
take me for a ride,
maybe crazy,
Can you realize that
I love the way you drive.

And it's truth, baby,
I've got le spleen.
My body is heavy,
but mind flies from with them.
It's truth, baby,
I've got le spleen.
So distinguish to,
live the way I lived.

Don't you cry - Kamelot



little by little
I've come to this point
on my own I've been searching my way
I lost you so early
the days went so fast
you don't know how I prayed every day

a song to remember
a song to forget
you'll never know how I tried
to make you proud
and to honor your name but
you never told me goodbye

now that your are gone
casting shadows from the past
you and all the memories will last

don't you cry
or suffer over me
I will be waiting for you
don't you cry
angels never fade away
I'll be watching over you
see you through

now I'm a man and
I'm feeling you still
could it be you were there all along
a time to surrender
a time to forgive
with solace I give you this song

now that you are gone
casting shadows from the past
in my dreams I hear your voice at last

don't you cry
or suffer over me
I will be waiting for you
don't you cry
angels never fade away
I'll be watching over you
see you through

I can see you tonight
in the pale winter light
father and son again
the bond of blood will never end

Nightwish - Sleeping Sun (2005 version) / Live (The End of an Era)



The sun is sleeping quietly
Once upon a century
Wistful oceans calm and red
Ardent caresses laid to rest

For my dreams I hold my life
For wishes I behold my nights
A truth at the end of time
Losing faith makes a crime

I wish for this night-time to last for a life-time
The darkness around me - Shores of a solar sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

Sorrow has a human heart
From my God it will depart
I'd sail before a thousand moons
Never finding where to go

Two hundred twenty-two days of light
Will be desired by a night
A moment for the poet's play
Until there's nothing left to say

[repeat chorus x2]

In my dreams



In my dreams


AH 
Can't be wrong 
AH 
It's so strong 
You are the only one 
Touch my heart so strong 
You gave me things 
These imagine things 
I was waiting for so long 
In my dreams i think of you 
In my dreams i feel so close to you 
In my dreams i never knew 
I am dream and like a child to you 
I love you 
This should be a part of you 
You are so far away 
I miss you everyday 
In my dreams i think of you 
In my dreams i feel so close to you 
In my dreams i never knew 
I am dream and like a child to you 
You are far away 
So far away 
You are far away 
So far away 
In my dreams i think of you 
In my dreams i feel so close to you 
In my dreams i never knew 
I am dream and like a child to you 
In my dreams i think of you 
In my dreams i feel so close to you 
In my dreams i never knew

Caro Emerald: Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor

      
Η Caro Emerald από την Ολλανδία είναι μια εκρηκτική τραγουδίστρια με φλογερό ταπεραμέντο που μου αρέσει πολύ! Έκανε πάταγο με το πρώτο της σινγκλ Back It Up (2009), ενώ το πρώτο της Άλμπουμ “Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor” (Ιαν. 2010) έμεινε  για 27 εβδομάδες σερί στην κορυφή του Dutch Album Chart. Ως τον Αύγουστο είχε γίνει 3 φορές πλατινένιο δηλ είχε πάνω από 150 χιλ πωλήσεις.
Ζωηροί, χαρούμενοι jazz ρυθμοί που θυμίζουν έντονα το ύφος των ταινιών του 40 ή του 50. Την λατρεύω, ακούστε τη λίστα  με τα παρακάτω τραγούδια!

Back It Up
A Night Like This
Just One Dance
That Man
The Other Woman
Riviera Life
I Know That He Is Mine
Stuck
Gr Wannado
The Lipstick On His Collar
Absolutely Mine
You Don't Love Me

Liverpool Express - You are my Love



You are my love
You are the one that I adore
You are my love
You are what I have waited for.
Oh, you are my love

You are my day
You changed my Winter into spring
You came my way and then my
heart began to sing
Oh, you are my love

Times were getting lonely
I was thinking only
Yesterday about the friends I thought I had
But no-one ever came to call on
They weren't around to close the door on
Never thought that things would get that way

You are my love
You are the one I'll always need
You are my love
For you I'd get down on my knees.
Oh, you are my love

You are my love (Times were getting lonely)
You are the one that I adore
(I was thinking only)
You are my love (Yesterday
about the friends)
You are the one what I have
waited for (who used
to call on me)
Oh, you are my love

And the same voice coming to me like it's all slowin down.


And the same voice coming to me like it's all slowin down.

Καλό μου, είδες τι μπορεί να κάνει μια φωνή; Έρχεται στα αυτιά μας, κατοικεί στο κεφάλι μας και κλείνει τον υπόλοιπο κόσμο απ' έξω. Μια γλυκιά, τρυφερή, φωνή ή και άλλοτε πιεστική επιτακτική. Μας γεμίζει όμορφα συναισθήματα, μας δίνει χαρά και ξεπετάγεται πότε πότε στη διάρκεια της ημέρας μας χαϊδεύοντας τα αυτιά μας. Φαντάσου λοιπόν την έκπληξη, τη σαστιμάρα ή τον πανικό, όταν αυτή η φωνή αρνείται να ξεπηδήσει και πάλι στο κεφάλι μας. Είναι απίστευτα μοναχικό όταν διαπιστώνει κανείς ότι δεν μπορεί να αναπλάσει τον ήχο της φωνής, τα μικρά τσακίσματα, την όμορφη χροιά, τα τσαλίμια που κάνει, όταν δεν μπορεί να ξαναθυμηθεί τη θέρμη, την τρυφερότητα των λέξεων και των εκφράσεων. Ευτυχώς, παροδικό αυτό. Και η φωνίτσα περνάει απαλά από τα αυτιά μας "Σε λατρεύω γλυκιά μου", "Σ' αγαπώ πολύ καλέ μου" φέρνοντας γαλήνη, χαρά, ευτυχία. Έτσι γλυκό μου, δικό σου το επόμενο: 
You are my day
You changed my Winter into spring
You came my way and then my
heart began to sing
Oh, you are my love

The Connels 74-75



Got no reason for coming to me and the rain running down.
There's no reason.
And the same voice coming to me like it's all slowin down.
And believe me -

I was the one who let you know
I was your sorry-ever-after. '74-'75.

It's not easy, nothing to say 'cause it's already said.
It's never easy.
When I look on in your eyes then I find that I'll do fine.
When I look on in your eyes then I'll do better.

I was the one who let you know
I was your sorry-ever-after. '74-'75.
Giving me more and I'll defy
'Cause you're really only after '74-'75.

Got no reason for coming to me and the rain running down.
There's no reason.
When I look on in your eyes then I find that I'll do fine.
When I look on in your eyes then I'll do better.

I was your sorry-ever-after. '74-'75.
Giving me more and I'll defy
'Cause you're really only after '74-'75.
