Foreigner – ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’ [Official Music Video]



Music video by Foreigner performing I Want To Know What Love Is.
Best quality available on YouTube

I do not own this material, I am just showing it to the rest of the world. 

Lyrics:

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older
Aaaah woah-ah-aah

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
And through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me
Aaaah woah-oh-ooh

I’m gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me, oooh ooh-ooh ooh-ooh oooh
I’ve got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
I can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is
And I know, I know you can show me

Let’s talk about love
(I wanna know what love is) the love that you feel inside
(I want you to show me) I’m feeling so much love
(I wanna feel what love is) no, you just cannot hide
(I know you can show me) yeah, woah-oh-ooh
I wanna know what love is, let’s talk about love
(I want you to show me) I wanna feel it too
(I wanna feel what love is) I wanna feel it too
And I know, and I know, I know you can show me
Show me what is real, woah (woah), yeah I know
(I wanna know what love is) hey I wanna know what love
(I want you to show me), I wanna know, I wanna know, want know
(I wanna feel what love is), hey I wanna feel, love
I know you can show me, yeah

Make Music Part of Your Life Series: Prokofiev in a Club! Sonata #7 Yellow Lounge Amsterdam Lisitsa



One day in a future the ‘traditional” concert halls will go the way of ‘traditional” movie theaters = disappear from use. I told you before – the BEST place to listen to the piano is directly under it. But try that in Concergebouw or Carnegie Hall _ they will call police on you ;) Not so in a club . Yellow Lounge Amsterdam March 19th 2014 – http://www.trouwamsterdam.nl An ultimate experience listening to Prokofiev . Never mind the tinny captured recording – it was Imperial after all and it RRRRrrrocked – just ask the willing “victims” :)

The Wallflowers – The empire in my mind (theme song to The Guardian)



“Empire Of My Mind”   (The Wallflowers)

Well, there is trouble in my mind
There is dark
There’s dark, and there is light.
I lay our hands over my eyes
As I look deep
Through valleys deep and wide
Across the border line
For the Empire in My Mind

You are the reason I don’t sleep
You are the light
That’s breaking through the leaves
You know how hard I try
To believe
I have something good inside
Over barricades I climb
For the Empire in My Mind.

I have no love somewhere in time
I’ve been lifted up
I’ve looked honor in the eyes
I have no reason; I have no rhyme
I cannot deny
There’s a darkness that’s inside
I am guilty by design
And now I realize
The temptation’s made me blind
To the Empire in My Mind

There is no order
There is chaos
And there is crime
There is no one home tonight
In the Empire in My Mind

There is no distance that I don’t see
I do have a will
No limit to my reach
I wish I would; I wish I might
See a line tonight
Separating wrong from right
Some are only born to try
And maybe that’s the reason why
I am afraid someday I’ll find
There is no Empire in My Mind

There is trouble in my life
There is trouble in my life


(performed by Jakob Dylan of The Wallflowers)

Wilderness Park Downey California My Movie #3_720HD 1.avi (Audio: Simon and Garfunkel – Bridge over troubled water


In case you didn’t visit my YouTube Channel yet:
Wilderness Park Downey California My Movie #3_720HD 1.avi
(Audio: Simon and Garfunkel – Bridge Over Troubled Water)

This is an edited version of the originally uploaded “Wilderness Park In Downey California”. The main difference is the clips transition, and I think you will enjoy it more this way. Why did I make this movie? Because I believe that our time calls for refocusing on our psyche, on what makes all natural beings live in harmony. In other words I just took the time away from the modern word to look to nature, and rediscover its beauty, empathy, resilience, acceptance, and above all power to restore. It is the intent of the well known “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”, to restore, to build the bridge between the internal, overwhelming at times noise, and the external, harmony in nature.

Happy New Year, And I’ll see you on the trail!

Rattlesnake Hilltop (Turnbull Canyon) Puente Hills, California August 3, 2013



Filmed with an “LG OPTIMUS ELITE”, 
It is always a great “Vista Point” from this hilltop, and always a privilege 
to be able to do the walk, which is not as easy as it used to be. Only 1.7 miles from Beverly Blvd. @ Turnbull Canyon Trail, still a uphill road all the way. But the view is so gratifying, and the people around so friendly, that it is worth every moment, every breath…See you there sometimes! Get off your couch and get going!
Must have:
Water, UV filtering glasses, head covering, sunblock lotion, and a positive attitude!
Best exercise, if you are wealthy enough to attend to, is walking, and walking uphill is a perfect Cardio training, not requiring an equipment: Just your legs!

Start today!

I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor)

*****Today I finally broke away from the winter season, and its heavy clothing and hit the trail*****

I thought that republishing the video I made last August, will be inspiring you to start your outdoors fitness program: Remember this is a thing that cannot be delegated! Again: Start today!

“L’ivrogne” Mr Jacques Brel – 1961

Ami remplis mon verre
Encore un et je vas
Encore un et je vais
Non je ne pleure pas
Je chante et je suis gai
Mais j’ai mal d’être moi
Ami remplis mon verre
Ami remplis mon verre

Buvons à ta santé
Toi qui sais si bien dire
Que tout peut s’arranger
Qu’elle va revenir
Tant pis si tu es menteur
Tavernier sans tendresse
Je serai saoul dans une heure
Je serai sans tristesse
Buvons à la santé
Des amis et des rires
Que je vais retrouver
Qui vont me revenir
Tant pis si ces seigneurs
Me laissent à terre
Je serai saoul dans une heure
Je serai sans colère

Ami remplis mon verre
Encore un et je vas
Encore un et je vais
Non je ne pleure pas
Je chante et je suis gai
Mais j’ai mal d’être moi
Ami remplis mon verre
Ami remplis mon verre

Buvons à ma santé
Que l’on boive avec moi
Que l’on vienne danser
Qu’on partage ma joie
Tant pis si les danseurs
Me laissent sous la lune
Je serai saoul dans une heure
Je serai sans rancune
Buvons aux jeunes filles
Qu’il me reste à aimer
Buvons déjà aux filles
Que je vais faire pleurer
Et tant pis pour les fleurs
Qu’elles me refuseront
Je serai saoul dans une heure
Je serai sans passion

Ami remplis mon verre
Encore un et je vas
Encore un et je vais
Non je ne pleure pas
Je chante et je suis gai
Mais j’ai mal d’être moi
Ami remplis mon verre
Ami remplis mon verre

Buvons à la putain
Qui m’a tordu le coeur
Buvons à plein chagrin
Buvons à pleines pleurs
Et tant pis pour les pleurs
Qui me pleuvent ce soir
Je serai saoul dans une heure
Je serai sans mémoire
Buvons nuit après nuit
Puisque je serai trop laid
Pour la moindre Sylvie
Pour le moindre regret
Buvons puisqu’il est l’heure
Buvons rien que pour boire
Je serai bien dans une heure
Je serai sans espoir

Ami remplis mon verre
Encore un et je vas
Encore un et je vais
Non je ne pleure pas
Je chante et je suis gai
Tout s’arrange déjà
Ami remplis mon verre
Ami remplis mon verre
Ami remplis mon verre.

Léo FERRE (2/10) : Vingt ans / La chambre / Le scaphandrier


Léo FERRE (2/10) : Vingt ans / La chambre / Le scaphandrier

Léo Ferré (24 August 1916 – 14 July 1993) was a Monegasque poet, composer and a dynamic and controversial live performer whose career in France dominated the years after the Second World Waruntil his death. He released some forty albums over this period, composing the music and the majority of the lyrics. He released many hit singles, particularly between 1960 and the mid-seventies. Some of his songs have become classics of the French chanson repertoire, such as Avec le temps, C’est extra or Jolie Môme.

Along with Georges BrassensJacques Brel and Serge Gainsbourg, he is considered one of the greatest French singer-songwriters of all times, but unlike Brel and Gainsbourg, or even Charles Aznavour, his songs are very little known in the English-speaking world. Ferré was an anarchist; he may be the greatest French protest singer ever.

Ferré’s lyrics were extremely incisive and tuned in to the issues of the day, but also astonishingly poetic. He mixed revolt with love and melancholy, sophisticated lyricism with slang and shouts, rhyming verse with prose monologues. He moved from music-hall to symphonic music, breaking free from the traditional song structure, inventing his own musical territory, powerfully dramatic and unique. He also popularized the French poètes maudits, such as François VillonCharles BaudelairePaul Verlaine, and Arthur Rimbaud, as well as great French poets from the 20th century like Guillaume Apollinaire and Louis Aragon, by setting into music many of their poems.

“We Want To Fight For This Cause”: Nuclear Refugees From Fukushima Join Anti-Nuke Protests


Published on Jan 17, 2014

http://www.democracynow.org - On our final day of our special broadcast from Tokyo, we speak with a Japanese resident from the town that housed part of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant who is participating in weekly protests against the resumption of nuclear power in her country. “We couldn’t bring anything from our houses. We didn’t have a toothbrush, we didn’t have a blanket. We didn’t have towels. We had nothing. It was truly hell, and we thought it would be much better to die. But now, we are here, and we can’t really give up. We want to fight for this cause,” Yukiko Kameya said as she attended a demonstration outside Prime Minister Shinzo Abe‘s official residence. “We told the prime minister many times, every week here, that we are against the re-opening of the nuclear facilities, but it doesn’t seem that he gets it. He just does whatever he wants to do anyway.”

State of Conflict: Bill Moyers on North Carolina’s Right Wing Takeover & the Citizens Fighting Back (…’we should know who’s buying our government…’)


http://www.democracynow.org/2014/1/27/state_of_conflict_bill_moyers_on

Published on Jan 27, 2014

http://www.democracynow.org - Legendary broadcaster Bill Moyers joins us to discuss his latest investigation which explores how the influence of large, untraceable political donations known as “dark money” have become the greatest threat to democracy in the United States. In “State of Conflict: North Carolina,” Moyers and his team explore how wealthy right-wing donors are greatly influencing state politics. “This is more than North Carolina,” Moyers says. “It’s a harbinger of how organized money is the greatest threat to democracy because it unbalances of equilibrium. Democracy is suppose to check the excesses of private power and private greed and if money disestablishes that equilibrium we’re in trouble.” Moyers, the host of “Moyers & Company,” also talks about the long fight to secure voting rights. Fifty years ago, he was serving in President Lyndon B. Johnson‘s administration at the time of the “Freedom Summer” campaign in 1964 and the formation of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. Moyers has won more than 30 Emmy Awards. He also was a founding organizer of the Peace Corps, served as press secretary for President Lyndon Johnson, and was a publisher of Newsday and senior correspondent for CBS News

Famous Blue Raincoat – Leonard Cohen



Lyrics
Its four in the morning, the end of december
Im writing you now just to see if youre better
New york is cold, but I like where Im living
Theres music on clinton street all through the evening.

I hear that youre building your little house deep in the desert
Youre living for nothing now, I hope youre keeping some kind of record.

Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear
Did you ever go clear?

Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
Youd been to the station to meet every train
And you came home without lili marlene

And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
And when she came back she was nobodys wife.

Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
One more thin gypsy thief
Well I see janes awake –

She sends her regards.
And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
What can I possibly say?
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
Im glad you stood in my way.

If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
Your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free.

Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
I thought it was there for good so I never tried.

And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear

Great Compositions/Performances: Leonard Cohen – Story of Isaac (live performance 1985)



“The Story Of Isaac”, by Leonard COhen

Well, the door it opened slowly,
my father he came in,
I was nine years old.
And he stood so tall above me,
and his blue eyes they were shining
and his voice was very cold.
He said, “I’ve had a vision
and you know I’m strong and holy,
I must do what I’ve been told.”
So we started up the mountain,
I was running, he was walking,
and his axe was made of burning gold.

Well, the trees they got much smaller,
yes, the lake a lady’s mirror
when we stopped to drink some wine.
Then he threw the bottle over,
broke a minute later
and he put his hand on mine.
Thought I saw an eagle
but it might have been a vulture,
I never could decide.
Then my father built an altar,
he looked once behind his shoulder,
I guess he knew I would not hide.

You who build these altars now
to sacrifice our children,
you must not do it anymore.
A scheme is not a vision
and you never have been tempted
by a demon or a god.
You who stand above them now,
your hatchets blunt and bloody,
you were not there before.
When I lay upon a mountain
and my father’s hand was trembling
with the beauty, I mean the beauty of the word.

And if you call me brother now,
forgive me but I must inquire,
“Just according to whose plan?”
When it all comes down to dust
I will kill you if I must,
I will help you if I can.
When it all comes down to dust
I will help you if I must,
I’ll kill you if I can.
And mercy, mercy on our uniform,
man of peace, man of war,
the peacock spreads his deadly fan.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sonnerie de Ste-Geneviève du Mont-de-Paris, “The Bells of St. Genevieve” in English, is a work by Marin Marais written in 1723 for violviolin and harpsichord withbasso continuo. It can be considered a passacaglia or a chaconne, with a repeating D, F, E bass line. Being a student of Monsieur de Sainte-Colombe, it is perhaps Marais’ most famous composition that explores the various techniques of the viol.

 

The work begins with 4 measures of the bass line played by the continuo and viol, then, on the 5th measure the violin takes over the melody. Throughout the piece, the violin and viol take turns with the melody.

 

The viol part is of great difficulty because of Marais’s mastery of that instrument. The centerpiece is not the melody, the violin, but the viol. His work can be thought of as something to showcase the violist’s skill, despite that it does not always have the melody.

 

The piece also exists in a version for solo double bass, having been arranged by Norman Ludwin for Ludwin Music. An electronic version on aFairlight synthesizer was used in the soundtrack of the 1982 film “Liquid Sky“.
