    Britain's got talent! Susan Boyle, Connie Talbot, others...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lp0IWv8QZY

    "I've always wanted to play before a large audience" - said Susan Boyle before taking the stage. "


    I dreamed a dream in time gone by
    When hope was high
    And life worth living
    I dreamed that love would never die
    I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

    Then I was young and unafraid
    And dreams were made and used
    And wasted
    There was no ransom to be paid
    No song unsung
    No wine untasted.

    But the tigers come at night
    With their voices soft as thunder
    As they tear your hope apart
    As they turn your dream to shame.

    And still
    I dream he'll come to me
    That we will live the years together
    But there are dreams that cannot be
    And there are storms
    We cannot weather...

    I had a dream my life would be
    So different form this hell I'm living
    so different now from what it seemed
    Now life has killed
    The dream I dreamed.

    Re: Learn British! Go Susan!

    Lampada, THANK YOU FOR THIS!
    It absolutely made my day! I was shivering, what a spectacle was it!
    These three! Their faces, the puplic acception and the singer herself!
    Such voice can make love her just for that voice!
    Incrediable!
    So nice, what a kind event!
    I'll go and call mom and show that to her right now!

    Incrediable!
    Я так думаю.

    Re: Learn British! Go Susan!

    They were talking about this on NPR yesterday. I can't wait to watch it. The first musical I ever went to was Les Miserables, so I'm already partial to that song. I get chills just remembering it, let alone actually hearing it performed.

    Isn't this a bit like Paul Potts a couple of years ago on Britain's Got Talent? Looks like a shlub, everyone expects a disaster, but then he brings the house down with an incredible voice.

    Susan Boyle - Cry Me A River HQ

    Recorded back in 1999

    "...Boyle's track went virtually unnoticed when it was independently released 10 years ago on a charity CD reported Times Online. The Whitburn Community Council in West Lothian only pressed 1,000 copies of The Millennium Celebration compilation. ..."


    Now you say you're lonely
    You cried the long night through
    Well, you can cry me a river
    Cry me a river
    I cried a river over you
    Now you say you're sorry
    For being so untrue
    Well, you can cry me a river
    Cry me a river
    I cried a river over you

    You drove me,
    Nearly drove me out of my head
    While you never shed a tear
    Remember?
    I remember all that you said
    Told me love was too plebeian
    Told me you were through with me
    Now you say you love me
    Well, just to prove you do
    Cry me a river
    Cry me a river
    I cried a river over you

    You drove me
    Nearly drove me out of my head
    While you never shed a tear
    Remember?
    I remember all that you said
    Told me love was too plebeian
    Told me you were through with me...
    And now you say you love me
    Well, just to prove that you do...
    Come on! come on!
    Cry me a river...
    Cry me a river...
    I cried a river over you
    I cried a river over you...

    Now you say you're lonely
    You cried the long night through
    Well, you can cry me a river
    What is she singing instead of "Well, you can"? My guess is - "come on then".

    Killing Me Softly With His Song ( Roberta Flack )

    Strumming my pain with his fingers,
    Singing my life with his words,
    Killing me softly with his song,
    Killing me softly with his song,
    Telling my whole life with his words,
    Killing me softly with his song ...

    I heard he had a good song,
    I heard he had a style.
    And so I came to see him to listen for a while.
    And there he was this young boy, a stranger to my eyes.

    Strumming my pain with his fingers,
    Singing my life with his words,
    Killing me softly with his song,
    Killing me softly with his song,
    Telling my whole life with his words,
    Killing me softly with his song ...

    I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd,
    I felt he read my letters and read each one out loud.
    I prayed that he would finish but he just kept right on ...

    Strumming my pain with his fingers,
    Singing my life with his words,
    Killing me softly with his song,
    Killing me softly with his song,
    Telling my whole life with his words,
    Killing me softly with his song ...

    He sang as if he knew me in all my dark despair.
    And then he looked right through me as if I wasn't there.
    But he just came to singing, singing clear and strong.

    Strumming my pain with his fingers,
    Singing my life with his words,
    Killing me softly with his song,
    Killing me softly with his song,
    Telling my whole life with his words,
    Killing me softly with his song ...

    He was strumming, oh, he was singing my song.
    Killing me softly with his song,
    Killing me softly with his song,
    Telling my whole life with his words,
    Killing me softly with his song ...
    With his song ...

    I don't know how to love him...

    I don't know how to love him.
    What to do, how to move him.
    I've been changed, yes really changed.
    In these past few days, when I've seen myself,
    I seem like someone else.
    I don't know how to take this.
    I don't see why he moves me.
    He's a man. He's just a man.
    And I've had so many men before,
    In very many ways,
    He's just one more.
    Should I bring him down?
    Should I scream and shout?
    Should I speak of love,
    Let my feelings out?
    I never thought I'd come to this.
    What's it all about?
    Don't you think it's rather funny,
    I should be in this position.
    I'm the one who's always been
    So calm, so cool, no lover's fool,
    Running every show.
    He scares me so.
    I never thought I'd come to this.
    What's it all about?
    Yet, if he said he loved me,
    I'd be lost. I'd be frightened.
    I couldn't cope, just couldn't cope.
    I'd turn my head. I'd back away.
    I wouldn't want to know.
    He scares me so.
    I want him so.
    I love him so.

    The way we were...


    Memries,
    Like the corners of my mind
    Misty water-colored memories
    Of the way we were
    Scattered pictures,
    Of the smiles we left behind
    Smiles we gave to one another
    For the way we were
    Can it be that it was all so simple then?
    Or has time re-written every line?
    If we had the chance to do it all again
    Tell me, would we? could we?
    Memries, may be beautiful
    and yet
    Whats too painful to remember
    We simply choose to forget
    So its the laughter
    We will remember
    Whenever we remember...
    The way we were...
    The way we were...

    The power of music: It's a real heart opener
    updated 9:14 a.m. EDT, Mon May 11, 2009

    Story Highlights
    Music, like laughter, opens up blood vessels and produces protective chemicals
    Constricted vessels can lead to high blood pressure, increase heart attack risk
    Hospitals across the country use music therapy to help patients heal

    By Val Willingham
    CNN Medical Producer
    (CNN) -- If you didn't catch the white coat and the stethoscope, you might take Dr. Mike Miller for a middle-aged rocker, roaming the halls of the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore.

    For years, Miller, a research cardiologist, has been studying the effects of happiness -- or things that make people happy -- on our hearts. He began his research with laughter, and found watching funny movies and laughing at them could actually open up blood vessels, allowing blood to circulate more freely.

    Miller thought, if laughter can do that, why not music? So, he tested the effects of music on the cardiovascular system. "Turns out music may be one of the best de-stressors -- either by playing or even listening to music," said Miller.

    The setup was basically the same as with the laughter study: Using high-tech imaging, Miller measured blood vessel size as people listened to music.

    The results did not surprise Miller. "The inner lining of the blood vessel relaxed, opened up and produced chemicals that are protective to the heart," he said.

    But when participants listened to music they didn't particularly enjoy, Miller said, "the vessels actually began to close up." Watch Dr. Gupta explain how music helps the heart »

    That's exactly what tension -- or stress -- does.

    Long-term stress can wreak havoc on the cardiovascular system. Over time, it can cause blood vessels to stiffen and become rigid, constricting blood flow. As people get older, arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, becomes a problem. Constricted vessels can cause blood pressure to rise and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. Stress can also suppress the immune system, contribute to infertility and impotence, speed the aging process and even rewire the brain, leaving people more vulnerable to anxiety and depression.

    But music can counter the effects of stress. "It gives us an overall feeling of good, well-being -- a sense of euphoria in some cases," Miller said.

    A recent study out of Stanford University found elderly patients who were diagnosed with depression gained self-esteem and saw an improvement in their mood when they were visited by a music therapist.

    In fact, many hospitals across the country use music therapy to help patients heal. The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, uses music as part of its cardiovascular surgery healing program to "promote relaxation and reduce tension, stress and anxiety." Because music helps these patients relax, it decreases their pain, improves their moods and helps them to sleep better, especially during recovery.

    Miller has not only seen these same results in some of his patients who use music therapy, but he said he also believes music can be so relaxing that it can actually keep the body young. "We would like to believe that it may slow down the aging process," he said.

    But be careful what you listen to. Whether you like Beyoncé or the B-52s, Chopin or Johnny Cash, Miller found that listening repeatedly to the same tune diminished the music's effects on the body. "You just don't get that boost if you listen to the same song over and over again," he said. "You need to vary your songs, so when you hear the song fresh, it brings back the sense of joy and opens up the system."

    So, the next time your boss gets on your nerves, or the kids are driving you crazy, or the car breaks down, don't start pulling out your hair. Instead, turn on the radio, grab your iPod or pop in a CD, and let the music carry you away.

    Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high.
    There's a land that I heard of Once in a lullaby.
    Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue.
    And the dreams that you dare to dream
    Really do come true.
    Someday I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far Behind me.
    Where troubles melt like lemon drops, Away above the chimney tops.
    That's where you'll find me.
    Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow,
    Why then - oh, why can't I?
    If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow,
    Why, oh, why can't I?

    Imagine there's no Heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace

    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world

    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

    I will always love you...

    If I should stay
    I would only be in your way.
    So I'll go but I know
    I'll think of you
    Every step of my way.

    And I will always love you.
    I will always love you.
    (My darling, you)

    Bittersweet memories,
    That is all I'm taking with me.
    So goodbye, please don't cry.
    We both know I'm not what you, you need.

    and I will always love you.
    I will always love you.

    I hope life will treat you kind
    And I hope you'll have
    All you've dreamed of.
    and I do wish you joy and
    happiness.
    But above all this, I wish you love.
    I love you i wil always love you.

    And I will always always love you.
    I will always love you...
    i will always love you

    Smile though your heart is aching
    Smile even though its breaking
    When there are clouds in the sky, youll get by
    If you smile through your fear and sorrow
    Smile and maybe tomorrow
    Youll see the sun come shining through for you

    Light up your face with gladness
    Hide every trace of sadness
    Although a tear may be ever so near
    Thats the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, whats the use of crying?
    Youll find that life is still worthwhile
    If you just smile

    Thats the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, whats the use of crying?
    Youll find that life is still worthwhile
    If you just smile

    I have a dream, a song to sing
    To help me cope with anything
    If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
    You can take the future even if you fail
    I believe in angels
    Something good in everything I see
    I believe in angels
    When I know the time is right for me
    I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

    I have a dream, a fantasy
    To help me through reality
    And my destination makes it worth the while
    Pushing through the darkness still another mile
    I believe in angels
    Something good in everything I see
    I believe in angels
    When I know the time is right for me
    I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands, saying, "how do you do?"
    They're really saying, "I love you"

    I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
    They'll learn much more, than I'll never know
    And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

    I closed my eyes drew back the curtain
    To see for certain what I thought I knew
    Far far away someone was weeping
    But the world was sleeping, any dream will do

    I wore my coat with golden lining
    Bright colors shinning wonderful and new
    And in the east the dawn was breaking
    And the world was waking, any dream will do

    A crash of drums a flash of light
    My golden coat flew out of sight
    The colors faded into darkness
    I was left alone

    May I return to the beginning
    The light is dimming and the dream is too
    The world and I, we are still waiting
    Still hesitating, any dream will do
    Any dream will do, any dream will do

    Favourite Things

    Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
    Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
    Brown paper packages tied up with string
    These are a few of my favourite things!

    Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
    Doorbells and slay bells and schnitzel with noodles
    Wild gees that fly with the moon en their wings
    These are a few of my favourite things!

    Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
    Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eye lashes
    Silver white winters that melt into spring
    These are a few of my favourite things!

    When the dog bites, when the bee stings
    When I'm feeling sad, I simply remember
    my favourite things!
    and then I don't feel so bad!
