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.

All My Sins





Mandalay - All my sins

Taken that vow
You know he's
Taken by now
Upset you
Talked you all 'round
In sympathy oh girl


Walk by the sea
Forgive me all my sins
Sift through my memory
And find where I begin


Lie in the warm sand
And dig in my heels
Cry for my dead child
Forget how that feels


Closer to home
He cuts you
Close to the bone
He won't leave you
It's too far to crawl
And everyone knows


Walk by the sea
Forgive me all my sins
Sift through my memory
And find where I begin


Lie in the warm sand
And dig in my heels
Cry for my dead child
Forget how that feels


Walk by the sea
Forgive me all my sins
Sift through my memory
And find where I begin


Lie in the warm sand
And dig in my heels
Cry for my dead child
Forget how that feels


I can feel me rising
I can feel me rising


Walk by the sea
Forgive me all my sins
Sift through memory
And find where I begin


Lie in the warm sand
And dig in my heels
Cry for my dead child
Forget how that feels

Mandalay - Flowers bloom

Sometimes
The reflection I see
Bears no
Ressemblance to me

Sometimes
I look around the place I live
And wonder
How I came to choose the things I did

Alone Again Or




Love - Alone Again Or

Yeah, said it's all right
I won't forget
All the times I've waited patiently for you
And you'll do just what you choose to do
And I will be alone again tonight my dear


Yeah, I heard a funny thing
Somebody said to me
You know that I could be in love with almost everyone
I think that people are
The greatest fun
And I will be alone again tonight my dear

Shine on you Crazy Diamond

Και η μουσική στο πρόγραμμα της επόμενης μισής, μίας ώρας, μπορεί να είναι...  Shine on you Crazy Diamond. Καληνύχτα!


Smile



Ένα χαρούμενο τραγουδάκι!
Όσο απλό κι αν είναι, τόσο όμορφα ακούγεται.

Μου θυμίζει κάθε φίλο, κάθε φίλη που είναι στη ζωή μου και μου δίνει την ξεχωριστή παρουσία του /της.

Φιλαράκια, καλημέρα! Smile!!

Total Eclipse Of The Heart (Remake)



Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit restless and I dream of something wild
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit helpless and I'm lying like a child in my arms
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit angry and I know I've got to get out and cry
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit terrified but then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you'll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
Cause we'll never be wrong together

Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart

Turnaround, every now and then I know
you'll never be the boy you always you wanted to be
Turnaround, every now and then I know
you'll always be the only boy who wanted me the way that I am
Turnaround, every now and then I know
there's no one in the universe as magical and wonderous as you
Turnaround, every now and then I know
there's nothing any better and there's nothing I just wouldn't do
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you'll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
Cause we'll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart


Άν και καταθλιπτικό το "ύφος" των στίχων ("..But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do, a total eclipse of the heart..." ), αφ ενός να μη συμμεριστείς αυτή τη νοοτροπία (άλλωστε δεν είναι ο σκοπός που το ποστάρω), αφετέρου όμως να σου δώσει "κουράγιο" κυρίως με την όμορφη μουσική του (είναι όμορφο κομμάτι δεν νομίζεις; ). Ευελπιστώ σε "ψυχική αφύπνιση" και ζωηράδα την οποία σίγουρα διαθέτεις αλλά σκόπιμα αδρανοποιείς..Και φυσικά φρουφρούδικα χαμογελάκια συ-νε-χώς!! :Ρ

Φρου.. :-)

Bang Bang



Nancy Sinatra - Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)

I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down.

Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
"Remember when we used to play?"

Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down.

Music played, and people sang
Just for me, the church bells rang.

Now he's gone, I don't know why
And till this day, sometimes I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie.

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down...

(στίχοι εδώ)

Αγαπημένο τραγούδι, μου θυμίζει πάντα το Kill Bill (I) καθώς και το κατακίτρινο εξώφυλλο του soundtrack. Ήρεμο, γλυκό, τρυφερό και λίγο μελαγχολικό το τραγούδι αυτό. Μπορώ να το ταιριάσω μόνο με την ματιά την Ούμα Θέρμαν (πως λεγόταν στην ταινία; ), όταν εξέπεμπε "ησυχία" και "ηρεμία". Τελικά αυτά πιστεύω ήταν και τα μόνα τρυφερά στοιχεία της ταινίας. (Ταραντίνο είναι αυτός!)

Maggie Reilly - Everytime We Touch



Αφιερωμένο σε όλα τα ερωτευμένα παιδιά! :-)

A shooting star fell down to earth
Lightning cracked the sky
Something weird is happening
Something I can't deny

A strange kind of magic
Running through my brain
Feel I'm in heaven
Or going insane

'Cause everytime we touch
I get this feeling
And everytime we kiss
I swear I could fly
Can't you feel my heart beat fast
I want this to last
Need you by my side

...

Blind Guardian - The Bard's Song (live)



Now you all know
The bards and their songs
When hours have gone by
I'll close my eyes
In a world far away
We may meet again
But now hear my song
About the dawn of the night
Let's sing the bards' song

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

There's only one song
Left in my mind
Tales of a brave man
Who lived far from here
Now the bard songs are over
And it's time to leave
No one should ask you for the name
Of the one
Who tells the story

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow all will be known
And you're not alone
So don't be afraid
In the dark and cold
'Cause the bards' songs will remain
They all will remain

In my thoughts and in my dreams
They're always in my mind
These songs of hobbits, dwarfs and men
And elves
Come close your eyes
You can see them too..

Pink Floyd - High Hopes



Να προσθέσω και το εξής πως το κομμάτι το έχουν διασκευάσει (πολύ ωραία κατα τη γνώμη μου) και οι Φιλανδοί "Nightwish".

Η εν λόγω διασκευή βρίσκεται στους εξής δίσκους τους:

And Then There Was Silence



Blind Guardian - And Then There Was Silence

.

Το 15λεπτο αυτό Έπος κάνει λόγο για τα οράματα της Κασάνδρας του επερχόμενου Τρωϊκού πολέμου.Είναι βασισμένο στον Τρωικό Πόλεμο, στην Ιλιάδα του Ομήρου και στην Αινειάδα του Βιργιλίου 

Turn your head and see the fields of flames


He carries along
From a distant place
He's on his way
He'll bring decay
(don't move along
cause things they will go wrong
the end is getting closer
day by day)
In shades of grey
We're doomed to face the night
Light's out of sight


Since we've reached the point of no return
We pray for starlight
We wait for the moon
The sky is empty
Alone in the unknown
We're getting nowhere


We have been betrayed by the wind and the rain
The sacred hall's empty and cold
The sacrifice made should not be done in vain
Revenge will be taken by Rome


We live a lie under the dying moon
Pale faced laughs doom
Indulges in delight


It's getting out of hand
The final curtain will fall


Hear my voice!
There is no choice!
There's no way out!
You'll find out!


We don't regret it
So many men have failed
But now he's gone
Go out and get it
The madman's head it shall be thyne
We don't regret it
That someone else dies hidden in disguise
Go out and get it
Orion's hound shines bright


Don't you think it's time to stop
The chase around the ring
Just stop running, running
Round the ring
Don't you know that fate has been
Decided
By the gods
Feel the distance
Distance
Out of reach


Welcome to the end
Watch your step, Cassandra
You may fall
As I've stumbled on the field
(Sister mine
Death's a certain thing)
Find myself in darkest places
Find myself drifting away
And the otherworld
The otherworld appears


Find myself side she dies in vain
I cannot be freed
I'm falling down
As time runs faster
Moves towards disaster
The ferryman will wait for you my dear


And then there was silence
Just a voice from the otherworld
Like a leaf in an icy world
Memories will fade


[Chorus]
Misty tales and poems lost
All the bliss and beauty
Will be gone
Will my weary soul find release for a while
At the moment of Death I will smile
It's the triumph of shame and disease
Iliad
Raise my hands and praise the day
Break the spell show me the way
In decay
The flame of Troy will shine bright


The newborn child would carry ruin to the hall
The newborn's death will be a blessing to us all


Good choice?
Bad choice?
Out of three
You've chosen misery
Power and wisdom you deny
(Bad choice, Bad choice)


War is the only answer
When love will conquer fear
So the judgement's been made
To the fairest the graceful says
Badly he fails


Warning!
Feel the heat of passion father king
(Don't let him in, don't let her in)
Desire, lust, obsession -
Death - they'll bring
We can't get out once they are in


She's like the sunrise
Outshines the moon at night
Precious like starlight
She'll bring in a murderous prize


In darkness grows the seed of man's defeat
Jealousy!


I can clearly see the end now! [x3]


The thread of life is spun
The coin's been placed below my tongue


Never give up
Never give in
Be on our side
So we can win
Never give up
Never give in
Be on our side


Old moon's time is soon to come


Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Nothing to lose
Like one we'll stand
We'll face the storm
Created by a man


Troy! Troy! Troy! Troy! [Continued in background]


And as the lion slaughters man
I am the wolf and you're the lamb


Hallowed Troy shall fall
Round the walls
Faith is shattered bodies fall


Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Nothing to lose
Like one we'll stand
It's all for one and
One for
All
We live for will be wiped out


I feel that something's wrong
Surprise, surprise they're gone
Full moon your time goes by
And new moon still kept out of sight
We live - we die


[Chorus]
Misty tales and poems lost
All the bliss and beauty
Will be gone
Will my weary soul find release for a while
At the moment of Death I will smile
It's the triumph of shame and disease
Iliad
Raise my hands and praise the day
Break the spell show me the way
In decay
The flame of Troy will shine bright


Roam in Darkness [x6]
(Spread the vision)
(We will be lost if you truly believe)
- Troy in Darkness
There's a cold emptiness in our
hearts
That they've gone away
And wont come back


They'll tear down the wall to bring it in
They'll truly believe in the lie (Lie! Lie!)
With blossoms they'll welcome the
Old foe


The vision's so clear
When day and dream unite
The end is near
You better be prepared


Nah ahahaahahahaaa!
(Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah-nah-nah naaaaah)
The nightmare shall be over now
There's nothing more to fear
Nah ahahaahahahaaa!
(Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah-nah-nah naaaaah)
Come join in our singing
And dance with us now
Nah ahahaahahahaaa!
(Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah-nah-nah naaaaah)
The nightmare shall be over now
There's nothing more to fear
Nah ahahaahahahaaa!
(Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah-nah-nah naaaaah)
The war it is over forevermore


No hope
The blind leads the blind
Carry on
Though future's denied
Mare or stallion
There's far more inside
We are in at the kill
We'll cheerfully die


[Chorus]
Misty tales and poems lost
All the bliss and beauty
Will be gone
Will my weary soul find release for a while
At the moment of death I will smile
It's the triumph of shame and disease
Iliad


Raise my hands and praise the day
Break the spell show me the way
In decay
The flame of Troy will shine bright


Its holy light shines on


So the judgement's been made
We're condemned though the trial's
Far ahead
The crack of doom
Father
Your handsome son is heading home


Still the wind blows
Calm and silent
Carries news from a distant shore [x4]
(Heading home!) [x2]


Out of mind
Can't get it
Can't get it out of my head [x4]
