Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux: Georges Brassens


Georges Brassens
Il N’y A Pas D’amour Heureux lyrics

Pome de Louis Aragon
Musique : Georges Brassens

Rien n’est jamais acquis l’homme ni sa force
Ni sa faiblesse ni son coeur et quand il croit
Ouvrir ses bras son ombre est celle d’une croix
Et quand il croit serrer son bonheur il le broie
Sa vie est un trange et douloureux divorce
Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux.
2Sa vie elle ressemble ces soldats sans armes
Qu’on avait habills pour un autre destin
quoi peut leur servir de se lever matin
Eux qu’on retrouve au soir dsarms incertains
Dites ces mots ma vie et retenez vos larmes
Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux.
3Mon bel amour mon cher amour ma dchirure
Je te porte dans moi comme un oiseau bless
Et ceux-l sans savoir nous regardent passer
Rptant aprs moi ces mots que j’ai tresss
Et qui pour tes grands yeux tout aussitt moururent
Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux.
4Le temps d’apprendre vivre il est dj trop tard
Que pleurent dans la nuit nos coeurs l’unisson
Ce qu’il faut de malheur pour la moindre chanson
Ce qu’il faut de regrets pour payer un frisson
Ce qu’il faut de sanglots pour un air de guitare
Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux

The Dead Sea


The Dead Sea

The lowest body of water on the surface of the Earth, the Dead Sea is a landlocked salt lake bordered by Israel, the West Bank, and Jordan. One of the saltiest water bodies in the world, the Dead Sea hosts few life forms. The high salinity makes bathing here a unique experience, as one cannot help but float in its waters. It is also common practice when visiting the Dead Sea to coat one’s body with its mineral-rich mud. What health issues do some people believe the Dead Sea and its mud can cure? More… Discuss

The wheel, poetic thought by George-B (The smudge and other poems)


The wheel, poetic thought by George-B
(The smudge and other poems)

In the quest
To define the wheel
The scientist gave it the circle
The artist gave it any shape
The wood cutter cut a section of a tree…
And rolled downhill…
there came Pythagoras, and
he gave the wheel it’s formula

LYRICS:
Like a flower waiting to bloom
Like a lightbulb in a dark room
I’m just sitting here waiting for you
To come home and turn me on

Like the desert waiting for the rain
Like a school kid waiting for the spring
I’m just sitting here waiting for you
To come on home and turn me on

My poor heart, it’s been so dark since you been gone
After all, you’re the one who turns me off
You’re the only one who can turn me back on

My Hi-Fi’s waiting for a new tune
The glass is waiting for some fresh ice cubes
I’m just sitting here waiting for you
To come on home and turn me on
Turn me on

TODAY’S HOLIDAY: DRYMIAIS


Drymiais

In Macedonia, the first three days of March are known as Drymiais and are associated with a number of superstitious beliefs. No trees are pruned or planted during this period because it is believed that they will wither. On March 1, one custom is for Macedonian mothers to tie pieces of red and white yarn around their children’s wrists. When they see a swallow, the children throw the skein of yarn to the bird as an offering, or place it under a stone. If they lift the stone a few days later and find a swarm of ants beneath it, they can expect a healthy and prosperous year. More…Discuss

Nina Simone interpreta “Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux”, la poesia di Louis Aragon che Georges Brassens musicò nel 1954; di seguito il testo originale e la traduzione in italiano.

– Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux –

“Rien n’est jamais acquis à l’homme 
Ni sa force, ni sa faiblesse, ni son cœur 
Et quand il croit ouvrir ses bras 
Son ombre est celle d’une croix 
Et quand il croit serrer son bonheur…il le broie 
Sa vie est un étrange et douloureux divorce 

Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux 

Sa vie, elle ressemble à ces soldats sans armes 
Qu’on avait habillés pour un autre destin 
A quoi peut leur servir de se lever matin 
Eux qu’on retrouve au soir désarmés incertains 
Dites ces mots, ma vie 
Et retenez vos larmes! 

Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux 

Mon bel amour, mon cher amour, ma déchirure 
Je te porte dans moi comme un oiseau blessé 
Et ceux-là sans savoir nous regardent passer 
Répétant après moi les mots que j’ai tressés 
Et qui pour tes grands yeux tout aussitôt moururent 

Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux 

Le temps d’apprendre à vivre 
Il est déjà trop tard 
Que pleurent dans la nuit nos cœurs à l’unisson 
Ce qu’il faut de malheur pour la moindre chanson 
Ce qu’il faut de regrets pour payer un frisson 
Ce qu’il faut de sanglots pour un air de guitare 

Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux.”

– Non esiste amore felice –

Non c’è mai niente di scontato per l’uomo
Né la sua forza, la sua debolezza, né il suo cuore
E quando crede di aprire le braccia
La sua ombra è quella di una croce
E quando crede di stringere la sua felicità…la stritola
La sua vita è uno strano e doloroso divorzio

Non esiste amore felice

La sua vita, assomiglia a quei soldati senz’armi
Che si sono vestiti per un altro destino
A cosa può servire alzarsi la mattina
Per loro che si ritrovano la sera disarmati incerti
Dite queste parole, la mia vita 
E trattenete le lacrime!

Non esiste amore felice

Mio bell’amore, mio caro amore, mia lacerazione
Ti porto dentro di me come un uccello ferito
E quelli là ignari ci guardano passare
Ripetendo dopo di me le parole che ho intrecciate
E che per i tuoi grandi occhi tutti morivano all’istante

Non esiste amore felice

E’ tardi per imparare a vivere
Ormai è da troppo tempo
Che i nostri cuori piangono all’unisono nella notte
Quel che serve d’infelicità per ogni minima canzone
Quel che serve di rimpianti per regalare un brivido
Quel che serve di singulti per un’aria di chitarra

Non esiste amore felice.”

Georges Brassens – Il n’y a pas d’Amour Heureux, 1965
(music de Georges Brassens – poeme de Louis Aragon)

Rien n’est jamais acquis à l’homme. Ni sa force
Ni sa faiblesse ni son cœur. Et quand il croit
Ouvrir ses bras son ombre est celle d’une croix
Et quand il croit serrer son bonheur il le broie
Sa vie est un étrange et douloureux divorce

Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux

Le temps d’apprendre à vivre il est déjà trop tard
Que pleurent dans la nuit nos cœurs à l’unisson
Ce qu’il faut de malheur pour la moindre chanson
Ce qu’il faut de regrets pour payer un frisson
Ce qu’il faut de sanglots pour un air de guitare

Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux

Il n’y a pas d’amour qui ne soit à douleur
Il n’y a pas d’amour dont on ne soit meurtri
Il n’y a pas d’amour dont on ne soit flétri
Et pas plus que de toi l’amour de la patrie
Il n’y a pas d’amour qui ne vive de pleurs

Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 

Dumitru Georgescu Kiriac (18 March 1866 – 8 January 1928) was a Romanian composer, conductor, and ethnomusicologist.[1] He was particularly known for his sacred choral works and art songs which were based on the Romanian Orthodox tradition and Romanian folklore.[2]

Kiriac was born in Bucharest and began his musical studies at the Bucharest Conservatory (now the National University of Music) with Gheorghe Brătianu (1847 – 1905) and Eduard Wachmann (1836 – 1908). From 1892 to 1899 he studied in Paris with Vincent d’Indy at the Schola Cantorum de Paris and with Charles-Marie Widor and Gabriel Fauré at the Paris Conservatory. It was during this time that he began collecting Romanian children’s folk songs. On his return to Bucharest in 1900 he became a professor at the Bucharest Conservatory. The following year he founded the Romanian choral society, Carmen.[2][3]

Kiriac died in his native city at the age of 61. He was considered one of the founders of modern Romanian music.[4] Festivalul Internaţional de Muzică Corală “D.G. Kiriac”, an international festival of sacred choral music held annually in the city of Pitești, is named in his honour as is the city’s male voice choir.[5]

Etiquette

Many areas of public life are governed by codes of etiquette, which we often follow without having to think about them. However, every culture has its own distinct systems of etiquette, so it can be difficult to know how to behave in a new place, especially when conducting business. In Japan, for example, moments of silence are a normal part of conversation, in contrast with the small talk that is expected in some other cultures. What are some other examples of etiquette throughout the world? More… Discuss

The Doors – Roadhouse Blues, BEST version (live in N.Y. 1970)



Hi, how you doin’ there? Y-e-ah. Looking good. Everything is fucked up as usual… you know…

WHOOOOOAAAAAAOOOO – C´MON!
A-keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel
A-keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel
Come to the Roadhouse, gonna have a real, a good time.

Yeah, at the back of the Roadhouse they got some bungalows.
Ah, at the back of the Roadhouse they got some bungalows.
That’s for the people… like to go down slow.

Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll — all night long.

Ashen lady, Ashen lady,
Give up your vows,
Give up your vows.
Save our city, save our city
Right now!

Yeah, I woke up this morning, I got myself a beer.
Well, I woke up this morning, I got myself a beer.
Future’s uncertain and the end is always near.

Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll, baby, roll,
Let it roll — all night long.

 

Quotation: Virginia Woolf about self development and application


Life for most people compels the exercise of the lower gifts and wastes the precious ones, until it forces us to agree that there is little virtue, as well as little profit, in what once seemed to us the noblest part of our inheritance.

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941)

Fabulous Compositions: Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 by George Enescu



The author of this beautiful video has chosen a ever so truthful account of  the country and the people of Romania, now and throughout the ages old history, for which am very thankful:

“Pentru mine, Enescu va rămâne una din veritabilele minuni ale lumii.
(…) Rădăcinile puternice şi nobleţea sufletului său sunt provenite din
propria lui ţară, o ţară de inegalată frumuseţe.” Yehudi Menuhin

Just a thought:  “Yehudi Menuhin’s quotation refers to the best known, and loved Romanian poet Mihai Eminescu:  Nevertheless, I believe that George Enescu achieved in his Romanian Rhapsodies a portrayal of the people of Romania that no one else ever was able to describe with so much humanity, in the language of music what Eminescu did by employing the romantic poetry of the  Romanian language.” George-B

All the attempts made again and again by the reactionary Maire and his hires, do nothing but entice even them to try the chocolates, and become themselves customers and believers in a more colorful life, in which, not everything can turn out to be… sinful…Just human.
