    @kidkboom ... ah we have a dj/producer in da house! Have you competed in any of the mashstix challenges or have anything up on their site? I really am into mashups almost more than original songs now; but, the club remixes can have toooooo long of an intro for me. That is why I have been bugging our resident German, bitpicker, to help me out lately as I really like the mashups by Mashup Germany and while he uses mainly songs in English, he always seems to throw one German one in there and I need translations! I also like Dylan Vasey from London.

    Jarod Ripley (French) has the best mashup I've heard using Adele's Rolling in the Deep
    Rockzmom, thanks for the heads up about mashstix! Looked like they don't have any contests or challenges that are open just at the moment, but now that I know about it I'll mos def have to be in the next one! In the meantime I've got some mashups you might like.. or hate.. I'll PM you.. (Nothing German-speaking though sadly, unless Karin Dreijer Andersson's German accent counts)

    From another commercial...


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LzPPAw5tnqs


    Home!

    [Her:]
    Alabama, Arkansas,
    I do love my ma and pa,
    Not the way that I do love you.

    [Him:]
    Holy, Moley, me, oh my,
    You're the apple of my eye,
    Girl I've never loved one like you.

    [Her:]
    Man oh man you're my best friend,
    I scream it to the nothingness,
    There ain't nothing that I need.

    [Him:]
    Well, hot and heavy, pumpkin pie,
    Chocolate candy, Jesus Christ,
    Ain't nothing please me more than you.

    [Both:]
    Ahh Home. Let me come home
    Home is wherever I'm with you.
    Ahh Home. Let me go ho-oh-ome.
    Home is wherever I'm with you.

    La, la, la, la, take me home.
    Mother, I'm coming home.

    [Him:]
    I'll follow you into the park,
    Through the jungle through the dark,
    Girl I never loved one like you.

    [Her:]
    Moats and boats and waterfalls,
    Alley-ways and pay phone calls,
    I've been everywhere with you.

    [Him:]
    We laugh until we think we'll die,
    Barefoot on a summer night
    Nothin' new is sweeter than with you

    [Her:]
    And in the streets you run afree,
    Like it's only you and me,
    Geeze, you're something to see.

    [Both:]
    Ahh Home. Let me go home.
    Home is wherever I'm with you.
    Ahh Home. Let me go ho-oh-ome.
    Home is wherever I'm with you.

    La, la, la, la, take me home.
    Daddy, I'm coming home.

    (Talking)
    Him: Jade
    Her: Alexander
    Him: Do you remember that day you fell outta my window?
    Her: I sure do, you came jumping out after me.
    Him: Well, you fell on the concrete, nearly broke your ass, you were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you out to the hospital, you remember that?
    Her: Yes I do.
    Him: Well there's something I never told you about that night.
    Her: What didn't you tell me?
    Him: While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette you thought was gonna be your last, I was falling deep, deeply in love with you, and I never told you til just now.

    [Both:]
    Ahh Home. Let me go home.
    Home is wherever I'm with you.
    Ahh Home. Let me go ho-oh-ome.
    Home is where I'm alone with you.

    [Him:]
    Home. Let me come home.
    Home is wherever I'm with you.

    [Her:]
    Ahh home. Yes I am ho-oh-ome.
    Home is when I'm alone with you.

    [Her:]
    Alabama, Arkansas,
    I do love my ma and pa...
    Moats and boats and waterfalls,
    Alley-ways and pay phone calls...

    [Both:]
    Ahh Home. Let me go home.
    Home is wherever I'm with you.
    Ahh Home. Let me go ho-oh-ome.
    Home is where I'm alone with you...

    I am surprised to see that the old Tracy Chapman song Fast Car is back on the UK Top 40 List after all these years. Apparently it is because it was performed on Britain's Got Talent! This song is from 1989 and she won Grammys that year for Best New Artist, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, and Best Contemporary Folk Recording. The song was nominated for Grammy too. This is old school music, no auto-tune here.



    Lyrics:
    You've got a fast car
    I wanna a ticket to anywhere
    Maybe we make a deal
    Maybe together we can get somewhere
    Any place is better
    Starting from zero, got nothing to lose
    Maybe we'll make something
    Me, myself, I've got nothing to prove

    You've got a fast car
    I've got a plan to get us out of here
    Been working at the convenience store
    Managed to save just a little bit of money
    Won't have to drive too far
    Just cross the border and into the city
    You and I can both get jobs
    And finally see what it means to be living

    See my old man's got a problem
    Live with the bottle, that's the way it is
    He says his body's too old for working
    His body's too young, to look like his
    When mama went off and left him
    She wanted more from life than he could give
    I said somebody's got to take care of him
    So I quit school and that's what I did

    You've got a fast car
    Is it fast enough so we can fly away?
    We gotta make a decision
    Leave tonight or live and die this way

    Say remember when we were driving, driving in your car
    Speed so fast it felt like I was drunk
    City lights lay out before us
    And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
    And I had a feeling that I belonged
    I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

    You've got a a fast car
    We go cruising entertain ourselves
    You still ain't got a job
    Now I work in the market as a checkout girl
    I know things will get better
    You'll find work and I'll get promoted
    We'll move out of the shelter
    Buy a bigger house and live in the suburbs

    Say remember when we were driving, driving in your car
    Speeds so fast it felt like I was drunk
    City lights lay out before us
    And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
    And I had a feeling that I belonged
    I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

    You've got a fast car
    I've got a job that pays all our bills
    You stay out drinking late at the bar
    See more of your friends than you do of your kids
    I'd always hoped for better
    Thought maybe together you and me'd find it
    I got no plans and I ain't going nowhere
    So take your fast car and keep on driving

    Say remember when we were driving, driving in your car
    Speeds so fast it felt like I was drunk
    City lights lay out before us
    And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
    And I had a feeling that I belonged
    I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

    You've got a fast car
    Is it fast enough so you can fly away?
    You gotta make a decision
    Leave tonight or live and die this way

    That is such a good song, I really like it and it reminds me of laying by the pool (on holiday in Spain) while listening to her tape on my Walkman.
    What's Tracy Chapman doing these days?
    And it also reminds me of Suzanne Vega from the same period, remember her?

    YouTube - ‪No Wars Will Stop Us Singing‬‏


    No wars will stop us singing...


    Ugly sounds are overhead and the streets are coloured red.
    Young lives lost every day, its always been that way.
    But we believe one day we see a world at peace, in harmony.
    And that is why we say:

    No wars will stop us singing;
    our voices will stay strong.
    Even through the darkest night
    we will sing our song.

    No fear will stop us dreaming;
    our dreams will light the sky.
    Even when all hope is gone
    our dreams will not die.

    We are the future;
    we are tomorrow;
    we are the peace that you all crave.
    If our lives are taken we sing from beyond the grave.

    No fear will stop us dreaming;
    our dreams will light the sky.
    Even when all hope is gone
    our dreams will not die.

    We will sing,
    we will sing,
    we must sing our song.

    What are you listening to?
    Russian pop music, lol! Staying at a sanatorium in Belarus....
    Some songs are playing all the time at the barn dance style discos..
    Unfortunately I can't catch the titles - wish I knew what they were called!
    Cheezy but catchy!

    The other night So You Think You Can Dance premiered the Lady Gaga's new video for The Edge of Glory and as I was watching it I noticed the man sitting on the steps playing the sax and thought, "that looks a lot like Clarence," and afterwards they made an announcement that Clarence was in the hospital. Then came the announcement over the weekend that he was gone. For those of you who don't know his name, Clarence Clemons, was an amazing musician who when he played, made you feel joy. He is best known for his work with Bruce Springsteen; however, I know we have a number of Simpson fans here and he was on The Simpsons too.

    Some of his better known songs...

    Aretha Franklin's "Freeway of Love"


    Bruce "Born to Run"



    Bruce "Thunder Road"



    The Simpsons Season 11 Episode 9 – Grift of the Magi (the voice of the narrator)

    "They Don't Care About Us"

    Skin head, dead head
    Everybody gone bad
    Situation, aggravation
    Everybody allegation
    In the suite, on the news
    Everybody dog food
    Bang bang, shot dead
    Everybody's gone mad

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    Beat me, hate me
    You can never break me
    Will me, thrill me
    You can never kill me
    chew me, sue me
    Everybody do me
    Kick me, kike me
    Don't you black or white me

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    Tell me what has become of my life
    I have a wife and two children who love me
    I am the victim of police brutality, now
    I'm tired of bein' the victim of hate
    You're rapin' me of my pride
    Oh, for God's sake
    I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy...
    Set me free

    Skin head, dead head
    Everybody gone bad
    trepidation, speculation
    Everybody allegation
    In the suite, on the news
    Everybody dog food
    Black male, black mail
    Throw your brother in jail

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    Tell me what has become of my rights
    Am I invisible because you ignore me?
    Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
    I'm tired of bein' the victim of shame
    They're throwing me in a class with a bad name
    I can't believe this is the land from which I came
    You know I do really hate to say it
    The government don't wanna see
    But if Roosevelt was livin'
    He wouldn't let this be, no, no

    Skin head, dead head
    Everybody gone bad
    Situation, speculation
    Everybody litigation
    Beat me, bash me
    You can never trash me
    Hit me, kick me
    You can never get me

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    Some things in life they just don't wanna see
    But if Martin Luther was livin'
    He wouldn't let this be

    Skin head, dead head
    Everybody gone bad
    Situation, segregation
    Everybody allegation
    In the suite, on the news
    Everybody dog food
    Kick me, strike me
    Don't you wrong or right me

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us
    All I wanna say is that
    They don't really care about us

    I'd sacrifice anything come what might
    For the sake of having you near
    In spite of a warning voice that comes in the night
    And repeats, repeats in my ear

    Don't you know little fool, you never can win
    Use your mentality, wake up to reality,
    But each time that I do, just the thought of you
    Makes me stop just before I begin,
    Because I've got you under my skin

    This song was "cutting edge" back in 1972... there was a made-for-TV film with the same title that I watched about a million times when I was in elementary school (circa 1979-1982):



    Here are the lyrics:
    ...
    There's a land that I see
    Where the children are free
    And I say it ain't far
    To this land from where we are
    Take my hand, come with me,
    Where the children are free
    Come with me, take my hand, and we'll live...

    In a land where the river runs free
    In a land through the green country
    In a land to a shining sea
    And you and me are free to be you and me

    I see a land bright and clear
    And the time's comin' near
    When we'll live in this land,
    You and me, hand in hand
    Take my hand, come along,
    Lend your voice to my song
    Come along, take my hand, sing a song...

    For a land where the river runs free
    For a land through the green country
    For a land to a shining sea
    For a land where the horses run free
    And you and me are free to be you and me

    Every boy in this land
    Grows to be his own man
    In this land, every girl
    Grows to be her own woman
    Take my hand, come with me
    Where the children are free
    Come with me, take my hand, and we'll run...

    To a land where the river runs free
    To a land through the green country
    To a land to a shining sea
    To a land where the horses run free
    To a land where the children are free
    And you and me are free to be
    And you and me are free to be
    And you and me are free to be you and me


    The general theme of Free to Be... You and Me was to encourage children to reject gender/sex stereotypes -- that men don't cry and shouldn't be ballet dancers, that women can't be astronauts or soldiers, etc. (The movie also talked a little bit about racism and class differences, but mostly it was about gender roles.)

    Lampada, thanks for the post about "They Don't Care About Us" I looked it up and the backstory is very interesting.

    So I saw on tv today the trailer for the new Winnie the Pooh movie and they are using a song that I just adored and have both the US and UK versions. I can't believe they are using it though as it makes the trailer very sad...



    Here is the full song with lyrics: Keane "Somewhere Only We Know"

    Yeah, it's impressive.
    And the guy in the front is Travis Payne.


    "In January 2010, Payne embarked on a peace tour and arranged a surprise visit to the Cebu province of the Philippines to work with the dancing inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC), a maximum security that is also featured in the Michael Jackson Opus. Famous for their "Thriller" which received 300,000 views per day at its peak, the video has received over 37 million reported views and is considered one of the most viral videos viewed on the internet. Payne along with "This Is It" dancers Daniel Celebre (aka Da FunkyMystic) and Dres Reid taught over 1500 dancing inmates to perform "The Drill" as part of the song "They Don't Care About Us" and was video taped to coincide with the "This Is It" DVD & Blu-ray release on January 25, 2010. The clip went live on YouTube, Yahoo and TMZ and immediately captured more than 3 million views within 1 week of its release online.".

    Not a very widely known band, but I really like the singer's vocals.



    Lyrics:

    (Note: She swallows a lot of words and endings, but for the most part these lyrics should be pretty accurate based on listening to the studio track and two different live versions, although she does change the words a bit in different versions). If English isn't your first language, might make it fun to try and listen first and then check the lyrics if you're unsure.

    Don't drink when you're tired
    just watch those gems
    they catch everything
    like the light.

    Oh what would become,
    if we never moved
    just lost and loose
    like the light.

    Heeey
    as she keeps you
    and she leaves you
    you wonder how we could ever get back
    why would we
    so close to
    stay inside
    scared, locked
    to never come out.

    Like you were the only man

    What I'm gonna show you baby is that a woman can be tough

    I want you to come on, come on, come on, come on
    And take it
    Take another little piece of my heart now baby
    Break it
    Break another little bit of my heart now darlin' yeah
    Come on
    Grab another little piece of my heart now baby
    You know you got it if it makes you feel good, oh yes it did

    Your out on the streets lookin' good
    And baby deep down in your heart
    I guess you know that it ain't right
    Now but (6x's) Hear me when I cry, cry, cry, cry
    Baby I cry all the time
    Each time I tell myself that I well I can't stand the pain
    But when you hold me in your arms I'm singing once again

    Take another little piece of my heart now baby
    Break it
    Break another little bit of my heart now darlin' yeah
    Come on
    Grab another little piece of my heart now baby
    You know you got it if it makes you feel good

    Fantastic thing: ‪Pearl Jam - Man of the hour‬‏ - YouTube

    Tidal waves don’t beg forgiveness
    'CRASHED' and on their way
    Father he enjoyed collisions; others walked away
    A snowflake falls in may.
    And the doors are open now as the bells are ringing out
    Cause the man of the hour is taking his final bow
    Goodbye for now.

    Nature has its own religion; gospel from the land
    Father ruled by long division, young men they pretend
    Old men comprehend.

    And the 'SKY BREAKS' at dawn; shedding light upon this town
    They’ll all come ‘round
    Cause the man of the hour is taking his final bow
    Goodbye for now.

    And the road
    The old man paved
    The broken seams along the way
    The rusted signs, left just for me
    He was guiding me, love, his own way
    Now the man of the hour is taking his final bow
    As the curtain comes down
    I feel that this is just goodbye for now.

    I mentioned to someone a little while ago how much I like the movie The Breakfast Club a lot of great music was used in it and the "Brat Pack" came out of it. One song was by Simple Minds, Don't You Forget About Me ... well... The TV Show Psych made a 1 minute Music Video of their own in a very cute way to remind people to not forget about them over the summer...

    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.

    Mumford & Sons is a relatively new British band. They're getting pretty popular here in the states, hear them on the radio all the time.
