Piesa zilei – Desmond Kelly Babiachahige Bicycleka

Pe vremuri se zicea despre ghiocei că sunt vestitorii primăverii. Acum aș putea spune că bicicletele sunt vestitorii primăverii. Recunosc am văzut și în zilele de “cod roșu” biciclete pe stradă (și tare m-a bucurat imaginea).

Dar zilele astea, de când strălucește așa frumos soarele pe cer, au apărut zeci de biciclete în oraș, fiecare purtându-și povestea și călătorul spre destinație.

Fiind însă (calendaristic) iarnă pe ulițele noastre, nu mă pot abține să nu mă uit peste gard, în cealaltă emisferă, unde în perioada aceasta a anului e cald (chiar prea cald) și bine (pentru biciclit).

Piesa zilei de azi este Babiachahige Bicycleka (bicicleta) cântată de Desmond Kelly, cântereț cunoscut mai mult în Australia și Sri Lanka, iar în imaginile videoclipului poate fi văzut Paul Hogan (cunoscut în Australia pentru “The Paul Hogan Show”, la noi mai mult pentru rolul din Crocodile” Dunde), alături de echipa sa din “The Paul Hogan Show”.

Pe bicicletă, pasionații filmelor australiene o vor recunoaște pe Karen Pini.

And The Waltz Goes On

Un singur lucru mai pot spune…. FANTASTIC.

Vals compus de Antony Hopkins şi interpretat de orchestra Johhan Strauss, dirijată de Andre Rieu.

Alte cuvinte sunt de prisos… tot ce ar mai putea fi spus e “Bună dimineaţa”.

Piesa zilei – It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (and I Feel Fine…), R.E.M.

It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (and I Feel Fine…)… îmi răsună în cap de azi dimineaţă…. Probabil datorită schimbărilor de la muncă….

That’s great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, an airplane
And Lenny Bruce is not afraid
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs
Dummy, serve your own needs
Feed it off an aux speak, grunt, no, strength, no
Ladder start to clatter with fear fight down height
Wire in a fire, representing seven games
A government for hire and a combat site
Left of west and coming in a hurry
With the furies breathing down your neck
Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped
Look at that low playing! Fine, then
Uh oh, overflow, population, common food, but it’ll do
Save yourself, serve yourself
World serves its own needs
Listen to your heartbeat, dummy
With the rapture and the revered and the right, right
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched

It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

Six o’clock, TV hour
Don’t get caught in foreign towers
Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn
Locking in, uniforming, book burning, blood letting
Every motive escalate, automotive incinerate
Light a candle, light a votive, step down, step down
Watch your heel crush, crushed, uh-oh
This means no fear, cavalier, renegade steer clear!
A tournament, tournament, a tournament of lies
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline

It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine
It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine

The other night I dreamt of knives, continental drift divide
Mountains sit in a line, Leonard Bernstein!
Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce, and Lester Bangs
Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom!
You symbiotic, patriotic, slam book neck, right? Right

It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine
(It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone) and I feel fine
It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone) and I feel fine
It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone)
It’s the end of the world as we know it
(It’s time I had some time alone) and I feel fine

Piesa zilei – No One Lives Forever, Oingo Boingo

Probabil că nu sunt mulţi cei care-şi aduc aminte de Oingo Boingo şi piesele lor din anii ’80… “Capitalism”, “It’s a Dead Man’s Party” sau… “No One Lives Forever”.

Dacă-mi aduc aminte bine, prima mea casetă “originală” pe care mi-am cumpărat-o, a fost una cu Oingo Boingo… dar… pentru ziua de azi… No One Lives Forever. Asta şi pentru că am găsit un montaj video fain 🙂

One of my favourite Oingo Boingo songs, “No One Lives Forever.” From the album “The Dead Man’s Party.” Lyrics in Description.

“No One Lives Forever/Dead Man’s Party” (C) 1985 MCA Records

You worry too much / You make yourself sad
You can’t change fate / But don’t feel so bad
Enjoy it while you can / It’s just like the weather
So quit complaining brother . . . . . . .
No one lives forever!!

Let’s have a party there’s a full moon in the sky
It’s the hour of the wolf and I don’t want to die

I’m so happy dancing while the grim reaper
Cuts, cuts, cuts
But he can’t get me (I’m as)
Clever as can be, and I’m very quick, but don’t forget
No one lives forever!!!

You think you got it rough / What about your darling doggy?
Ten short years / And he’s getting old and groggy
I don’t think it’s very fair
Cold, chop, low, but it’s all relative my friend ’cause
No one lives forever!!!
Let’s have a party there’s a full moon in the sky
It’s the hour of the wolf and I
Don’t want to die (but) . . .

No one beats him at his game
For very long but just the same
Who cares, there’s no place safe to hide
Nowhere to run–no time to cry
So celebrate while you still can
‘Cause any second it may end.
And when it’s all been said and done . . .
Better that you had some fun
Instead of hiding in a shell-Why make your life a living hell?
So have a toast, and down the cup
And drink to bones that turn to dust (’cause) . . .
No one, no one, no one, no one . . . . . . . (etc.)
No one lives forever!! (Hey!)

Piesa zilei – Evadare de cinci stele, Iris

Oare cât va mai trece până ce ne vom trezi? Bună dimineaţa!

Hai acum da-mi votul tau
Si in schimb o viata buna iti vom da
Vei avea mult mai multi da
Nu televizor necreditat

Uite vezi ca-ti e mai bine
Acum faci ceva si tu doar pentru noi
Ne platesti facturile pline
La timp, la timp, sa nu intarzii

Refren:
Fugi baiete, fugi de aici
Pleaca din sistemul asta ca un bici
Fugi baiete, fugi de ei
Traieste-ti viata doar asa cum vrei

Carti nu ai ca sa citesti
Ziarele iti spunem noi ca sunt de-ajuns
Trebuie doar sa muncesti
O da, de intrebari nu fi patruns

Refren:…

Trebuie doar sa muncesti
O da, de intrebari nu fi patruns
Trebuie sa ne zambesti
O da, iti spunem noi ca e de-ajuns

Refren:…

Fugi departe sa nu-i mai vezi
Sa nu te-ajunga viata-n care nu mai crezi
Fugi baiete, fugi de ei
Traieste-ti viata doar asa cum vrei

Piesa zilei – Try to remember. Harry Belafonte

Încet, încet, toamna s-a aşezat liniştită, lăsându-ne să ne bucurăm de ultimele zile călduroase din an… Venind spre birou dimineaţă, pedalând prin Cişmigiu (unul din parcurile în care în acest an în loc să se investească în flori şi verdeaţă s-au băgat bani în pândari care nu ştiu să de deplaseze decât în grup)… şi fără să-mi dau seama cum… m-am pomenit fredonând melodia asta… Try to remember. Mai jos varianta cântată de Harry Belafonte.

Try to remember the kind of September
when life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
when grass was green and grain was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
when you were a tender and callow fellow,
Try to remember and if you remember the follow.

Try to remember when life was so tender
that no one wept except the willow.
Try to remember when life was so tender that
dreams were kept beside your pillow.

Try to remember when life was so tender that
love was an ember about to billow.
Try to remember and if you remember then follow.

Deep in December it’s nice to remember
altho you know the snow will follow.
Deep in December it’s nice to remember
without the hurt the heart is hollow.
Deep in December it’s nice to remember
the fire of September that made us mellow.
Deep in December our hearts should remember and follow.
