The Power Of Love"

I'll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door

Feels like fire
I'm so in love with you
Dreams are like angels
They keep bad at bay-bad at bay
Love is the light
Scaring darkness away-yeah

I'm so in love with you
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

I'll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door
When the chips are down I'll be around
With my undying, death-defying
Love for you

Envy will hurt itself
Let yourself be beautiful
Sparkling love, flowers
And pearls and pretty girls
Love is like an energy
Rushin' rushin' inside of me

This time we go sublime
Lovers entwine-divine divine
Love is danger, love is pleasure
Love is pure-the only treasure

I'm so in love with you
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
The power of love
A force from above
A sky-scraping dove

Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

I'll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door

 

Great band! Great Song!

Friday night it was late, I was walking you home
We got down to the gate, and I was dreaming of the night
Would it turn out right?
How to tell you girl?
I wanna build my world around you
Tell you that it's true
I wanna make you understand I'm talking about a lifetime plan

That's the way it began, we were hand-in-hand
Glen Miller's band was better than before
We yelled and screamed for more
And the Porter tunes, (Night and Day) made us dance across the room
It ended all too soon
On the way back home I promised you'd never be alone

CHORUS
Hurry, don't be late
I can't hardly wait
I said to myself when we're old
We'll go dancing in the dark, walking through the park
And reminiscing

Friday night it was late, I was walking you home
We got down to the gate, and I was dreaming of the night
Would it turn out right?
Now as the years roll on, each time we hear our favourite song
The memories come along
Older times we're missing, spending the hours reminiscing

From 1977. I really like the song and the spanish guitar on this. And the violins too. Great lyric too. Good Song!!!! When I hear it I turn the volume up!

Al Stewart: On The Border songtekst

The fishing boats go out across the evening water
Smuggling guns and arms across the Spanish border
The wind whips up the waves so loud
The ghost moon sails among the clouds
Turns the rifles into silver on the border

On my wall the colours of the maps are running
From Africa the winds they talk of changes coming
The torches flare up in the night
The hand that sets the farms alight
Has spread the word to those who're waiting on the border

In the village where I grew up
Nothing seems the same
Still you never see the change from day to day
And no-one notices the customs slip away

Late last night the rain was knocking at my window
I moved across the darkened room and in the lampglow
I thought I saw down in the street
The spirit of the century
Telling us that we're all standing on the border

In the islands where I grew up
Nothing seems the same
It's just the patterns that remain
An empty shell
But there's a strangeness in the air you feel too well

The fishing boats go out across the evening water
Smuggling guns and arms across the Spanish border
The wind whips up the waves so loud
The ghost moon sails among the clouds
Turns the rifles into silver on the border

On the border

Babe (a dutch group) with Wonderboy from 1979. I really like the singer in the middle. Her name is Gemma van Eck. More dutch written information on: http://www.musicproductions.nl/SlideShow%20Gemma/Gemma.shtml

Frida with her beautiful song Även en blomma (Even A Flower). I am a huge ABBA and Frida fan and this song from 1996 is so great!

She has a great voice and listening to her music makes me feel wonderful!

 

Bronski Beat- Small Town Boy

 

(wikipedia:) Bronski Beat was a popular British synthpop trio who achieved notable success in the mid 1980s, particularly with the 1984 chart hit "Smalltown Boy". All members of the group were openly homosexual, and their songs reflected this, often containing political commentary on gay related issues. Although many groups in the early to mid 80s had an openly gay image, Bronski Beat was one of the first groups to address the issues of gay people.

You leave in the morning
With everything you own
In a little black case
Alone on a platform
The wind and the rain
On a sad and lonely face
Mother will never understand
WHy you had to leave
For the love that you need
Will never be found at home
And the answer you seek
Will never be found at home
Pushed around and kicked around
Always a lonely boy
You were the one
That they'd talk about around town
As they put you down
And as hard as they would try
They'd hurt to make you cry
But you'd never cry to them
Just to your soul
No you'd never cry to them
Just to your soul

What a sad song and it touches me.

 

Freddy Aguilar singing Anak (child) from 1980

Patsy Gallant is from Canada.

She is still in the music but this song is her biggest hit. From 1978. From NY to LA

In my mind there´s a face on my lips there´s a name
In my life there´s no place for the man that I love
´cause I´m livin' my life just to sing and be free.
From L.A. to New York, from New York to L.A.
Yeah, hey, hey, hey
Ooh, From New York to L.A.

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
From New York to L.A., From New York to L.A.
From New York to L.A., Ooh!

I´m a star in New York, I´m a star in L.A.
In my life there´s no place for the man that I love
'cause I´m livin' my life just to sing and be free
From L.A. to New York, from New York to L.A.
Yeah, hey,
Ooh, From New York to L.A.

The city life of flashing lights
busy streets and fancy cars
booze and drugs and all the clubs
everyone´s a shining star.

Was so inviting to my eyes
that I can only be surprised
by all the sounds and sights to see
I thought all this was meant for me.
But was it really meant for me?

I´m a star in New York, I´m a star in L.A.
In my life there´s no place for the man that I love
cause I´m livin my life just to sing and be free.
From L.A. to New York, from New York to L.A.
Yeah, hey, hey, hey
Ooh, From New York to L.A.

The city lights are often blurred
by stories we´ve already heard.
Booze and drugs now break my head
´cause all the shining stars are dead.

I sometimes close my tired eyes
Let myself be hyptnotized
findin' a reason of lovin you,
the man I thought was meant for me.
But were you really meant for me?

 

What a great and romantic song this is. From 1972. I like it very much and I see the walk in the rain when I hear this song. Great song!

Love Unlimited was a female vocal trio that provided backing vocals for American R&B/soul singer Barry White on his albums and concert tours. They also found success with their own recordings. Formed in 1969, the group included Barry White’s future wife, Glodean James, her sister, Linda James, and Diane Taylor. (Wikipedia)

He is following me
See you tomorrow
See you on monday
OK, girl
Oh, don't be, don't be late
It starts to rain

The sure is
Everybody is trying to get out the rain
Oh It feels so good
The rain and thinking of you
So as I get home, I'm gonna call you
And tell you how much I love you
Oh I feel so good

Oh, I can walk in the rain with the one I love
Feel so fine,
Walking in the rain with the one I love
All mine
Two years is all I have
Didn't say
Well I got mine in so many ways
Living together

Whether near or far,
It doesn't matter where you are

So we love each other
Giving love so warm and free
Make our trade a reality
Then it'll last forever and ever
With every step we take and every
Breath we make, darling, just you and me

Oh, I can walk in the rain with the one I love
Feel so fine,
Walking in the rain with the one I love
All mine

So we love each other
With every passed day we share
To follow someone
Just being together
Making love so tenderly
Explode to the ecstasy
Then it'll last forever and ever
Together we hold the key
To make for ever our destiny

Oh, I can walk in the rain with the one I love
Feel so fine,
Walkin' in the rain with the one I love
All mine

I'm gonna call you right now
Dear, I hope he is home
Hello
Baby, I'm home. I've got something to tell you
What?
I love you
Oh, I love you too
Did you come out the rain?
Oh yes,It was so beautiful. Let me tell you how it started

Walking in the rain with the one I love

She is all I ever could've wanted her to be
She always knew just how to give the best of love to me
I thought I knew a thing or two about the ways of love
But it was soon to become so clear I didn't know enough
One day I found a note beside the ring she'd left behind
She said that here is all you need to know for better love next time

Say your love is strong and true
Let her know all she meant to you
Show her she's that special one
Who shines in your eyes like the rising sun
Give love less room to grow
Treat her tender and you will know
The secret to the treasures of heaven
In the heart of a woman

A bridge was burned and a lesson learned I never will forget
And for her timeless wisdom I'm forever in her debt
Last night I heard a good friend say he finally found the one
I told him to be sure these precious things weren't left undone

Say your love is strong and true
Let her know all she meant to you
Show her she's that special one
Who shines in your eyes like a rising sun
Give love less room to grow
Treat her tender and you will know
The secret to the treasures of heaven
In the heart of a woman

Say your love is strong and true
Let her know all she meant to you
Show her she's that special one
Who shines in your eyes like the rising sun
Give love less room to grow
Treat her tender and you will know
The secret to the treasures of heaven
In the heart of a woman

He is now known as the father of Miley Cyrus but I have some ceedees from a long time ago and this song has a great lyric.

 

Two dutch sisters who made great music. They sing so easily live.

A lot of great music they made. So wonderful to hear. So great to see.

I choose My best Friend but it was hard to choose something from them.

http://www.loislane.nl/

My best friend, you made my day
You danced and sang all the way
My best friend, don't turn around
It's gotta stop, there's peace to be found

It took some time to find your way
Ease your mind, hey, don't be afraid
Don't forget I know you best
Don't forget, no, that we will last

Every time when you're in pain
You keep calling out my name
You know I will understand
You just need a helping hand

My best friend, you sure made my day
You danced and sang the truth away
But I've been a stone you tried to hide
All night long we put out a fight

It took some time to find your way
Ease your mind, hey, don't be afraid
Don't forget I know you best
Don't forget, no, that we will last

Every time when you're in pain
You keep calling out my name
You know I will understand
You just need a helping hand

Baby, every time when you're in pain
You keep calling out my name
You know I will understand
Baby, you're my best friend

Ohohoho

 

What a wonderful instrument this is. The Harp!

I enjoy listening to this wonderful and romantic music and this girl plays it so good. I like it.

She plays Stairway to heaven!

Second Best to None is a song written by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. The song is performed by the staff of Benny Andersson's Stockholm hotel, Rival, going under the name The Rivals. Originally, the song was intended to be a jingle for the hotel's website, but has since become full-length with a promotional video featuring the staff.

2nd best to none Is a wicked place to be
Seeing no-one else ahead of me
I bless my luck My season in the sun
Still no challenge 2nd best to none

It’s good to be your friend
You’re always saying you can trust me to the bitter end
I guess I never said but there are complications
It should be pretty clear
It is to every soul around around us only not to you it would appear
There has to be a moment when the time is right for revelations

2nd best to none Is a wicked place to be
Seeing no-one else ahead of me
I bless my luck My season in the sun
Still no challenge 2nd best to none

Every runner-up is a rival to defeat
You don’t see them fall I’m too discreet
Cause I don’t mind Not being number one
Long as I am 2nd Best to None

Your arm around my waist
Reminds a fool like me of what I’m not allowed to taste
To feel you close is wonderful and devastating
Your hip against my hip
The tightness in my chest each time you take my hand I´ll never lose the grip
I want to blurt it out and yet I hold my tongue forever waiting

2nd best to none
Is a wicked place to be
Seeing no-one else ahead of me
I bless my luck
My season in the sun
Still no challenge
2nd best to none

So maybe now tonight
As we check in I notice that the bar in this hotel just seemed so right
A perfect place for candid talk in all discretion
Time at last for my confession

2nd best to none
Is a wicked place to be
Seeing no-one else ahead of me
I bless my luck
My season in the sun
Still no challenge 2nd best to none

I wanna be your number one
But I’m OK with 2nd best to none
I´m OK with 2nd best to none

 

 

One of their wonderful songs. I often play it in the car. The Eagles still perform.

The single is from 1976

 

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night
There she stood in the doorway;
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinking to myself,
’this could be heaven or this could be hell’
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say...

Welcome to the hotel california
Such a lovely place Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the hotel california
Any time of year, you can find it here

Her mind is tiffany-twisted, she got the mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

So I called up the captain,
’please bring me my wine’
He said, ’we haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine’
And still those voices are calling from far away,
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say...

Welcome to the hotel california
Such a lovely place Such a lovely face
They livin’ it up at the hotel california
What a nice surprise, bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said ’we are all just prisoners here, of our own device’
And in the master’s chambers,
They gathered for the feast
The stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can’t kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
’relax,’ said the night man,
We are programmed to receive.
You can checkout any time you like,
But you can never leave!

 

Princess in 1985 singing After the love is gone

 

I read the words time and time again

I could not believe my eyes.
You broke my heart in ev'ry line - how you hurt me!
When I think about how it used to be

We'd see each other every day.
Now you say things have changed - how you hurt me!

After the love has gone
how can I go on?
When there's nothing anyone can do
I'm still in love with you.
After the love has gone - love has gone - oh
I must be strong

But life must go on after the love has gone.

I gave you everything
I gave you all my love

Her songs from the time of Stock Aitken Waterman was great.

"You see the world through your cynical eyes
You're a troubled young man I can tell
You've got it all in the palm of your hand
But your hand's wet with sweat
And your head needs a rest
And you're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're kidding yourself if you don't believe it.
Why must you be such an angry young man
When your future looks quite bright to me?
And how can there be such a sinister plan
That could hide such a lamb
Such a caring young man
And you're fooling yourself if you don't believe it
You're killing yourself if you don't believe it
Get up, (get up!) get back on your feet
You're the one they can't beat and you know it
Come on (come on!) let's see what you've got
Just take your best shot and don't blow it.
Ohhh....."

 

From 1978

Where once was light
Now darkness falls
Where once was love
Love is no more
Don't say goodbye
Don't say I didn't try

These tears we cry
Are falling rain
For all the lies you told us
The hurt, the blame!
And we will weep to be so alone
We are lost
We can never go home

So in the end
I'll be what I will be
No loyal friend
Was ever there for me

Now we say goodbye
We say you didn't try

These tears you cry
Have come too late
Take back the lies
The hurt, the blame!

And you will weep
When you face the end alone
You are lost
You can never go home
You are lost
You can never go home

Watching the Movie Lord of the Rings Two Towers this sad song touches me.

 

What a wonderful song this is and she sings it so well!

A song from 1981, written by Andrew Loyd Webber

Her homepage: http://www.barbrastreisand.com/

Midnight
Not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory
She is smiling alone
In the lamplight
The withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan
Memory
All alone in the moonlight
I can smile happy your days ( I can dream of the old days)
Life was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again
Every street lamp seems to beat
A fatalistic warning
Someone mutters and the street lamp gutters
And soon it will be morning
Daylight
I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in
When the dawn comes
Tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin

Burnt out ends of smoky days
The still cold smell of morning
A street lamp dies ,another night is over
Another day is dawning
Touch me,
It is so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
If you touch me,
You'll understand what happiness is
Look, a new day has begun...

A wonderful song by a group that was from the 80's and show a lot of colours by the singer Boy George who wears a lot of makeup and different clothes. I like the song. From 1983/1984.

Victims by Culture Club

The victims we know so well
They shine in our eyes
When they kiss and tell
Strange places we never see
But you’re always there
Like a ghost in my dreams
And I keep on telling you
Please don’t do the things you do
When you do those things
Pull my puppet strings
I have that strangest void for you

We love and we never tell
What places our hearts in the wishing well
Love lead us into the stream
And it’s sink or swim
Like it’s always been
And I keep on loving you
It’s the only thing to do
When the angel sings
There are greater things
Can I give them all to you

Pull the strings of emotion
Take a ride into unknown pleasure
Feel like a child
On a dark night
Wishing there was some kind of heaven
I could be warm with your smiling
Hold out your hand for a while
The victims
We know them so well

Show my heart some devotion
Push aside those that whisper never
Feel like a child on a dark night
Wishing we could spend it together
I could be warm with your smiling
Hold out your hand for a while
The victims
We know them so well

 

 

I like this song. The rhytm and the music in it!

Spring was never waiting for us, girl
It ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance
Between the parted pages and were pressed,
In love's hot, fevered iron
Like a striped pair of pants

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down...
Someone left the cake out in the rain
and I don't think that I can take it
'cause it took so long to bake it
and I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!

I recall the yellow cotton dress
foaming like a wave
on the ground around your knees
The birds, like tender babies in your hands
and the old men playing checkers by the trees

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down...
Someone left the cake out in the rain
and I don't think that I can take it
'cause it took so long to bake it
and I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!

(BRIDGE)
There will be another song for me
For I will sing it
There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine while it is warm
and never let you catch me looking at the sun
And after all the loves of my life
after all the loves of my life
You'll still be the one.

I will take my life into my hands
and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes
and I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
and my passion flow like rivers through the sky.
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
I'll be thinking of you
and wondering why.

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down...
Someone left the cake out in the rain
and I don't think that I can take it
'cause it took so long to bake it
and I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!

Richard St. John Harris (1 October 1930 – 25 October 2002) was an Irish actor, singer-songwriter, theatrical producer, film director and writer.

Head under water
And they tell me to breathe easy for a while
The breathing gets harder, even I know that

You made room for me, but it's too soon to see
If I'm happy in your hands
I'm unusually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well, but you make this hard on me

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this
If you're on your way
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving
I'mma need a better reason to write you a love song today
Today

I learned the hard way
That they all say things you want to hear
My heavy heart sinks deep down under you
And your twisted words, your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry

Convinced me to please you
Made me think that I need this too
I'm trying to let you hear me as I am

I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you asked for it
'Cause you need one, you see
I'm not gonna write you a love song
'Cause you tell me it's make or breaking this
If you're on your way,
I'm not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leaving
I'mma need a better reason to write you a love song today

Promise me you'll leave the light on
To help me see with daylight, my guide, gone
'Cause I believe there's a way you can love me because I say


 

A wonderful song from 2007 that makes you sing along

 

  The song is written in the key of D minor. Vassar Clements originally wrote the basic melody an octave lower, in a tune called "Lonesome Fiddle Blues". The Charlie Daniels Band moved it up an octave and put words to it.

The devil's in the house of the rising sun- reference to The House of the Rising Sun, an American folk song. (source wikipedia)

It is a great song and I love the fast spoken and singing lyrics and great music too! from 1979

Kelly Family; what's a matter you people

Lead vocals - Jimmy/Patricia

Where there is hatred, they sow love
Where there is injury, they sow pardon
Where there is friction, they sow union
And error; truth, and doubt; faith
Where there's despair, they sow hope
Where there is darkness; light
And where there is sadness; joy

What's a matter you people?
What's a matter you say?
What's a matter you people?
It's gonna be a bright, sunshiny day.

Where there is love, there's also pain
I do not seek to be consoled,
As much as to console
Or to be understood as to understand
Or to be loved as to love
For it is in giving, that they receive
And in pardoning that they are pardoned
And in dying they are born to eternal life.

What's a matter you people...

To save one's soul, save one's life
Save one's soul, save one's life...

What's a matter you people...

Pilgrim walking, pilgrim talking, pilgrim walking

Like the difference in this song. The shouting part and the almost angelsong of the girl.

 

Flash and the Pan comes from Australia. This song has a wonderful instrumental break that I like very much.

The morning was cold and lonely
City lights old and grey
The sun arose trying to smile
Gave it all away
The honky-tonk called a stranger
The stranger couldn't pay the bill
Made a stand, raised his hand
Sang a song, no time to kill

I said, Hey, hey, hey, St. Peter
I've got a tale to tell
I've just been down in
New York town
It really feels like hell It really feels like hell

Billy was out of fashion
Manhattan was years ago
Yesterday he wasted time
Money was kind of slow
Billy had friends of glory
Billy was a friend of fame
Took a chance, raised his hand
Sang a song, now he's back in the game

Hey, St. Peter
Before you ring your bell
Just been down in
New York town
Done my time in hell Done my time in hell

I said, Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, St. Peter
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, St. Peter Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, St. Peter
It really feels like hell

Bonnie Tyler- Total Eclipse of my Heart.

Here sits a lady who is a fan of this music and from Jim Steinman.

Her Homepage: http://www.bonnietyler.com/ and from Jim: http://www.jimsteinman.com/

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you're never coming around
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and then I fall apart
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 your 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
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
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

Turnaround bright eyes
Turnaround bright eyes
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


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
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

Half past twelve
And I'm watching the late show in my flat all alone
How I hate to spend the evening on my own
Autumn winds
Blowing outside my window as I look around the room
And it makes me so depressed to see the gloom
Is there a man out there Someone to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Movie stars
Find the end of the rainbow, with a fortune to win
It's so different from the world I'm living in
Tired of T.V.
I open the window and I gaze into the night
But there's nothing there to see, no one in sight
Is there a man out there Someone to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Is there a man out there Someone to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase the shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Ofcourse this is a song from Abba. Amanda Seyfried (in a wonderful movie Mamma Mia!!) sings this in 2008! Mamma Mia is so great! A wonderful feelgood movie and gives you a big boost! I like the movie!!!!

Strands of light upon a bedroom floor
Change the night through an open door
I'm awake but this not my home
For the first time I'm not alone

Reaching out I touch another skin
Breathing out as he is breathing in
Deep inside I feel my soul aflame
Can my life ever be the same

I should have told him
I'd do anything if I could hold him
For just another day, for just another day
His love is something I will not forget
When I am far away, when I am far away
I feel the rainfall of another planet
Another planet

Close together in the afterglow
I remember how his loving flow
Turned the key into another world
Made a woman of a simple girl

Daylight comes as we both know it must
Soon my fantasy will turn to dust
But I would give him anything he asked
If my first love could be my last

I should have told him
I'd do anything if I could hold him
For just another day, for just another day
His love is something I will not regret
When I am far away, when I am far away
I feel the rainfall of another planet
When I am far away, when I am far away
I feel the rainfall of another planet

Welcome to the Pleasuredome from 1985

When I hear this song I turn the volume up.

Shooting stars never stop
Even when they reach the top

We're a long way from home
Welcome to the Pleasuredome
On our way home
Going home where lovers roam
Long way from home
Welcome to the Pleasuredome

Three Degrees

A wonderful song and great to swing!

All those lies and alibis
That you smoothed out every time
Now I`m giving up (I`m giving up now)
Giving up (I`m giving up now)
I`m giving up (I`m giving up now)

in April

From 1979

A wonderful song with a lot of strenght in it!

Her Homepage: http://www.gloriagaynor.com/

First I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live
without you by my side
But I spent so many nights
thinking how you did me wrong
I grew strong
I learned how to carry on
and so you're back
from outer space
I just walked in to find you here
with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed my stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second
you'd be back to bother me

Go on now go walk out the door
just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome anymore
weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
you think I'd crumble
you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
as long as i know how to love
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
and I'll survive
I will survive

It took all the strength I had
not to fall apart
kept trying hard to mend
the pieces of my broken heart
and I spent oh so many nights
just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
Now I hold my head up high
and you see me
somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person
still in love with you
and so you felt like dropping in
and just expect me to be free
now I'm saving all my loving
for someone who's loving me

"Wanted Dead or Alive" is a song from Bon Jovi's 1986 album Slippery When Wet. The song was written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora and was released in 1987 as the album's third single. The song peaked at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it the third single from the album to reach the Top 10 of the Hot 100. Slippery When Wet was the first hard rock album ever to have 3 top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100.

The song's title pays homage to Jon's admiration for Old West heroes, and how he identifies with them as being hated (wanted dead or alive).

t's all the same, only the names will change
Everyday it seems we're wasting away
Another place where the faces are so cold
I'd drive all night just to get back home

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days
And the people I meet always go their separate ways
Sometimes you tell the day
By the bottle that you drink
And times when you're all alone all you do is think

I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back
I play for keeps, 'cause I might not make it back
I been everywhere, still I'm standing tall
I've seen a million faces an I've rocked them all
I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive
I'm a cowboy, I got the night on my side
I'm wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

Wait a minute baby...
Stay with me awhile
Said you'd give me light
But you never told be about the fire

Drowning, in the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
When you build your house
Then call me home

And he was just like a great dark wing
Within the wings of a storm
I think I had met my match,
He was singing...
And undoing...
And undoing...
The laces
Undoing the laces

Said Sara, you're the poet in my heart
Never change, never stop
But now it's gone
It doesn't matter what for
But when you build your house
Then call me home

Hold on
The night is coming and the starling flew for days
I'd stay home at night
All the time
I'd go anywhere, anywhere, anywhere
Ask me and I'm there, (yeah)
Ask me and I'm there, I care (ooooooh)
In the sea of love
Where everyone would love to drown
But now it's gone
They say it doesn't matter anymore
When you build your house
Then please call me
Home....
Sara, you're the poet in my heart
Never change, and don't you ever stop (stop)
Now it's gone
No, it doesn't matter anymore
When you build your house
I'll come by

Fleetwood Mac started in 1967. This group has going through a lot of changes. I love this song. I just humming along.

Stevie Nicks sings Sara. She wrote the song too. From 1979

I just wanna feel real love,
Feel the home that I live in,
I got too much love,
Running through my veins, going to waste.

Some of his songs are great. I choose this one: from 2002 Feel

For a long long time this musical was very important for me. Great songs and a wonderful movie in 1979.

We starve-look
At one another short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation
Of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes

Somewhere
Inside something there is a rush of
Greatness
Who knows what stands in front of
Our lives
I fashion my future on films in space
Silence
Tells me secretly
Everything Everything

Manchester England England
Eyes look your last
Across the Atlantic Sea
Arms take your last embrace
And I'm a genius genius
And lips oh you the doors of breath
I believe in God
Seal with a righteous kiss
And I believe that God believes in Claude
Seal with a righteous kiss
That's me, that's me, that's me
The rest is silence The rest is silence
The rest is silence

Our space songs on a spider web sitar
Life is around you and in you
Answer for Timothy Leary, dearie

Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine in
The sun shine in...

Life is around you and in you

1979


Nothing's gonna change
In this world we live in
Life has no beginning or end

Nothing's gonna change
When I look around me
There are so many things I just don't understand

There are times when I fly like an eagle so high
There are times when I fall like a stone
There are times when I stop and I say to myself
What are we doing here?

Nothing's gonna change
Looking for an answer
To the questions that keep running through my mind

Nothing's gonna change
I don't know where to run to
There's nowhere in this world I can hide

There are times when I feel like a sun in the sky
There are times when I feel down and out
There are times when I stop and I say to myself
What are we doing here?

There are times when I feel like an eagle so high
And I don't wanna fall like a stone
There are times when I don't want to say to myself
What are we doing here?

For a long time I was looking at this song and suddenly I found this single and I was in 7th heaven when I hear this. Wonderful song and wonderful lyrics.

Xandra (she performed under many names but most under Sandra) sang many songs in dutch and english.

 

a dutch performer, she also went three times to the eurovision songcontest.

When I hear the song I always sing. My lips know the words even if I havent heard this song from quite a while...

Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I'd always missed with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.
'Cos I love you, yes I love you, oh how I love you.

Gazing at people, some hand in hand,
Just what I'm going through they can't understand.
Some try to tell me, thoughts they cannot defend,
Just what you want to be, you will be in the end.
And I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I've always missed, with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.

(spoken voice) Breath deep
The gathering gloom
Watch lights fade
From every room
Bedsitter people
Look back and lament
Another day's useless
Energy spent

Impassioned lovers
Wrestle as one
Lonely man cries for love
And has none
New mother picks up
And suckles her son
Senior citizens
Wish they were young

Cold hearted orb
That rules the night
Removes the colours
From our sight
Red is gray and
Yellow white
But we decide
Which is right
And Which is an Illusion

This song reminds me of my so special cat Mara who passed away in 2003 but she was so timeless and wise..

With a sad smile full of memories I still listen to this song with tears in my eyes. I cant tell how much this song means to me.

 

 

Alan Parson Project- Old and wise

(Lead vocal - Colin Bluntstone)

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows approaching me
And to those I left behind
I wanted you to know
You've always shared my deepest thoughts
You follow where I go

And oh, when I'm old and wise
Bitter words mean little to me
Autumn Winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they asked me if I knew you
I'd smile and say you were a friend of mine
And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes
Oh when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows surrounding me
And to those I leave behind
I want you all to know
You've always shared my darkest hours
I'll miss you when I go

And oh, when I'm old and wise
Heavy words that tossed and blew me
Like Autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they ask you if you knew me
Remember that you were a friend of mine
As the final curtain falls before my eyes
Oh when I'm old and wise

As far as my eyes can see

 

 

 

Saw here a couple of times live and she is good. Here is Melissa with a favorite: Royal Station 4/16

http://www.melissaetheridge.com/

Melissa Lou Etheridge (born May 29, 1961) is an American rock singer-songwriter and musician.

It's so hard to listen to these trains
Outside my window here it comes again
And it's calling me begging me
Follow me down the track
And it moans so dark and low
Baby ain't comin' back

I refuse to believe
It could happen to me and you
It's lonesome and it's hard and it's true

It got this whiskey to take care of my lips
I got these long cool steel strings
At my fingertips
I ain't got nothing to soothe my aching soul
Except this screeching and screaming iron
To tell me where I ought to go

I refuse to believe
It could happen to me and you
It's lonesome and it's hard and it's true

I hear the train sigh
And idle down below
Why your love is so sweet and while
Is something I'll never know

It sounds like crying
It sounds like letting go
Breathing and lying
Sinking and dying slow
And I watch from my window
Touching the cold glass sky
As the train rolls down the track
I say goodbye

 

 

Rainy Night In Georgia

Opening up my
suitcase
Trying to find a warm place
To spend the night
Heavy rains are falling
Seems I hear your voice calling
Alright

A rainy night in georgia
A rainy night in georgia
I believe that it's raining all over the world
I feel that it's raining all over the world

Neon signs are flashing
Taxis, cabs and
buses passing
Through the night
A distant moment of the train
Seems to play a sad refrain
To the night

A rainy night in Georgia
Such a rainy night in Georgia
I believe that it's raining all over the world
I feel like it's been raining all over the world

How many times I've wondered
It still
comes out the same
No matter how you look at it often
It's
life and we've just got to play the game

I shake the rain from my
sweater
take out your letters to pass some time
last it night when its time to rest
i hold your pictures to my breast
and I feel fine, fine

It's a rainy night in Georgia
Such a rainy night in Georgia
I feel that it's raining all over the world
Lord I feel like it's raining all over the world

Rainy night
Such a rainy night

I love this reflecting song. Imagining her (actually me) sitting there and read the letters by neonlight while it is raining outside.

A wonderful song. I love it.

Motown song

You packed your bags As I recall
And you walked slowly Down the hall
You said you had to get away
To ease your mind
And all you needed
Was just a little time
Oh, winter's passed, spring, and fall
You never wrote me
You never called, oh, oh
Nathan Jones you've been gone too long
If a woman
Could die of tears
Nathan Jones, I wouldn't be here
The key that you're holding won't fit my door And there's no room in my heart
For you no more
Because, winter's passed, spring, and fall
You never wrote me (ooh-ooh!)
You never called, oh, oh, oh
Nathan Jones you've been gone too long
Oh, winter's passed, spring, and fall
You never wrote me (you never wrote me)
You never called, (you never called) oh, oh
Nathan Jones you've been gone too long

 

 

This is a Wonderful song with wonderful rhyme and great lyrics.

The only way to play this song is loud!

 

The Moody Blues have sold in excess of 50 million albums worldwide and have been awarded 14 platinum and gold discs. They remain active as of 2010.

 

"Question"

Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door?
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war.

It's where we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need.
In a world of persecution
That is burning in it's greed.

Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door?
Because the truth is hard to swallow
That's what the wall of love is for.

It's not the way that you say it
When you do those things to me.
It's more the way that you mean it
When you tell me what will be.

And when you stop and think about it
You won't believe it's true.
That all the love you've been giving
Has all been meant for you.

I'm looking for someone to change my life.
I'm looking for a miracle in my life.
And if you could see what it's done to me
To lose the the love I knew
Could safely lead me through.

Between the silence of the mountains
And the crashing of the sea
There lies a land I once lived in
And she's waiting there for me.

But in the grey of the morning
My mind becomes confused
Between the dead and the sleeping
And the road that I must choose.

I'm looking for someone to change my life.
I'm looking for a miracle in my life.
And if you could see what it's done to me
To lose the the love I knew
Could safely lead me to
The land that I once knew.
To learn as we grow old
The secrets of our souls.

It's not the way that you say it
When you do those things to me.
It's more the way you really mean it
When you tell me what will be.

Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door?
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war.

It's where we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need.
In a world of persecution
That is burning in it's greed.

Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door?

Ofcourse you know him all from the Eagles

 

Remember when the days were long
And rolled beneath a deep blue sky
Didn't have a care in the world
With mommy and daddy standin' by
But "happily ever after" fails
And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers dwell on small details
Since daddy had to fly

But I know a place where we can go
That's still untouched by men
We'll sit and watch the clouds roll by
And the tall grass wave in the wind
You can lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence

O beautiful, for spacious skies
But now those skies are threatening
They're beating plowshares into swords
For this tired old man that we elected king
Armchair warriors often fail
And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers clean up all details
Since daddy had to lie

But I know a place where we can go
And wash away this sin
We'll sit and watch the clouds roll by
And the tall grass wave in the wind
Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair spill all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence

Who knows how long this will last
Now we've come so far, so fast
But, somewhere back there in the dust
That same small town in each of us
I need to remember this
So baby give me just one kiss
And let me take a long last look
Before we say goodbye

Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence

 

 

I can't stop running to you
Feel love coming through you
Girl with you beside me
Hold on, heaven guide me.

Red light spells danger
Can't hold out much longer
'Cos red light means warning
Can't hold out I'm burning.

What a wonderful song. Great Rhythm and when I hear it I must sing along!

Frida singing to turn the stone (Introduced By Agnetha Faltskog)

The moon retreats behind a silver cloud
As darkness throws its cloak towards the earth
And mystery replaces what we thought we knew
To turn the stone, to turn the stone

The one dimension only shows one side
But do we see the same through different eyes
As you and I peer into life's kaleidoscope
To turn the stone, to turn the stone

Eternal sands of time shift endlessly
Behind a veil of motionless disguise
An eyelid flash is all it really seems to need
To turn the stone, to turn the stone

 

  Harry Forster Chapin (December 7, 1942 – July 16, 1981) was an American singer and songwriter.

I like his songs and this one was the first (and so special!) I discovered from him!

His homepage: http://harrychapinmusic.com/chapin_site2/home/chapinhp_frm.html

Sometimes I get this crazy dream
That I just drive off in my car
But you can travel on ten thousand miles and still say where you are 

I am the morning DJ on K*H*J
Playing all the hits for you Playing them night and day
The bright good morning voice who's heard but never seen

 

 

 

A wonderful song from 1972. I like it very much!

The offical homepage of this group: Bread

Then you listen to the music and you like to sing along,
You want to get the meaning out of each and ev'ry song
Then you find yourself a message and some words to call your own
And take them home

 

Then the lights begin to flicker and the sound is getting dim
The voice begins to falter and the crowds are getting thin
But he never seems to notice he's just got to find
Another place to play, Fade Away. Got to Play.

This is a song that I like but I have some second thoughts on this strange song that I cant explain. Charlene has a wonderful voice and it is pity we didnt hear from her. But this song blew all around the world!

Note: Hi,
Firstly let me introduce myself. My name is Eileen and Im the President of the small but dedicated Charlene Fan Club. The meaning of this outstanding song is quite self explanatory but to answer the question, it pertains to a promiscuous & experienced woman of the world giving advice on 'lessons learned' to a longtime school friend. It is widely accepted that Charlene wrote this song about and from the eyes of Natalie Wood the actress. Hope this puts your mind at rest.
Eileen.

--------------------------------------
It simply means that in her quest to find love, passion, 'paradise' etc. with others, she neglected to pay attention to her self. She realized she had to love and accept herself first because without that, nothing else matters.
She's done all these things, been all over, had many lovers, etc. but she lost herself in the process, never taking the time to know her own self, just out there chasing after something.
.
----------------------------------------
Oh, I've been to Nice and the Isle of Greece while I've sipped champagne on a yacht
That's truth, that's love, that's an emetogenic vomit-inducing Ipecac of a song. First of all, Charlene, Greece is a country. It has a mainland and many islands. There is no such thing as The Isle Of Greece. Besides, if you've just had a baby and you're fighting with your husband, you don't need to make love to him tonight, you need a restraining order!

 

Hey lady, you lady, cursing at your life
You're a discontented mother and a regimented wife
I've no doubt you dream about the things you'll never do
But, I wish someone had talked to me
Like I wanna talk to you.....

Oh, I've been to Georgia and California and anywhere I could run
I took the hand of a preacher man and we made love in the sun
But I ran out of places and friendly faces because I had to be free
I've been to paradise but I've never been to me

Please lady, please lady, don't just walk away
'Cause I have this need to tell you why I'm all alone today
I can see so much of me still living in your eyes
Won't you share a part of a weary heart that has lived million lies....

Oh, I've been to Niece and the Isle of Greece while I've sipped champagne on a yacht
I've moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo and showed 'em what I've got
I've been undressed by kings and I've seen some things that a woman ain't supposed to see
I've been to paradise, but I've never been to me

Hey, you know what paradise is? It's a lie, a fantasy we create about people and places as we'd like them to be
But you know what truth is? It's that little baby you're holding, it's that man you fought with this morning. The same one you're going to make love with tonight. That's truth, that's love......

Sometimes I've been to crying for unborn children that might have made me complete
But I took the sweet life, I never knew I'd be bitter from the sweet
I've spent my life exploring the subtle whoring that costs too much to be free
Hey lady......I've been to paradise, (I've been to paradise)
But I've never been to me
