Your Hands
by Pablo Neruda

When your hands
leap towards mine, love,
what do they bring me in flight?
Why did they stop at my lips,
so suddenly,
why do I know them,
as if once before,
I have touched them,
as if, before being,
they travelled
my forehead, my waist?

Their smoothness
came winging through time,
over the sea and the smoke,
over the Spring,
and when you laid
your hands on my chest
I knew those wings
of gold dove,
I knew that clay,
and that colour of grain.

The years of my life
have been roadways of searching,
climbing of stairs,
crossing of reefs.
Trains hurled me onwards
waters recalled me,
on the surface of grapes
it seemed that I touched you.
Wood, of a sudden,
brought me the contact with you,
the almond-tree summoned
your hidden smoothness,
until both your hands
closed on my chest,
like a pair of wings
ending their flight.

Hoppípolla/Jumpin’ Puddles

«Smiling 
Spinning ’round and ’round 
Holding hands 
The whole world a blur 
But you are standing 

Soaked 
Completely drenched 
No rubber boots 
Running in us 
Want to erupt from a shell 

Wind in 
Aand outdoor smell of your hair 
I hit as fast as I could 
With my nose 

Hopping into puddles 
Completely drenched 
Soaked 
With no boots on 

And I get nosebleed 
But I always get up «

Sigur Rós

είναι αλήθεια
ένα παιδί όσες φορές κι αν πέσει,
σηκώνεται ξανά
θα κλάψει
θα πονάει
πολύ
ή
και λιγότερο
αλλά θα σταθεί όρθιο
θα σφίξει τις μικρές παλάμες του
με πείσμα
ένα χαμόγελο
θα εμφανιστεί στο πρόσωπό του
και θα συνεχίσει
το παιχνίδι

και τι είναι η ζωή
παρά ένα αδιάκοπό
λίγο πιο σοβαρό
παιχνίδι

σήκω
ξανά
μπορείς!

τι ρόλο αλήθεια έχει να παίξει το πλήθος;

τι είναι όλοι εκείνοι στις πλατείες και στα πάρκα;
άλλοι μιλούν για χαβαλέ και άλλοι για αντίσταση,
άλλοι πάλι φοβούνται για προπαγάνδα και άλλη για καθοδηγούμενη εκτόνωση,

κι εγω ;

εγω δεν εχω κατεβει στο σύνταγμα καθόλου, δεν άκουσα, δεν είδα, δεν ένιωσα, δε ξέρω

όπως και τόσοι άλλοι,

μόνο ένα θα πω

«Neither a man nor a crowd nor a nation can be trusted to act humanely or to think sanely under the influence of a great fear»

Bertrand Russell

 

 


so it’s been a while
since you rescued my world,
all the trees were then green,
now the leaves fall..
aw it’s been a while
since you loved my smile,
now the chrysalis’s empty
watch your butterfly fly..

«Baibaba Bimba

One warm flash lights by flocking together appear and wink

with good smell

Starting of departure has been stimulated and rhythmed up by breathing

The sea who waits our navigation is becoming big or small

with good-bye and hello.»

what a story to tell,
what a music to play,
what a song to sing,
what a life to live..

with all our thoughts close to japan

hehe well I guess in the end That’s Life!!!

 

 

That’s life
That’s what all the people say
You’re riding high in April
Shot down in May
But I know I’m gonna change that tune
When I’m back on top, back on top in June

I said that’s life
And as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks
Stomping on a dream
But I don’t let it, let it get me down
‘Cause this fine old world
It keeps spinning around

I’ve been a puppet, a pauper,
A pirate, a poet,
A pawn and a king,
I’ve been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself
Flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race

That’s life
I tell you, I can’t deny it
I thought of quitting baby
But my heart just ain’t gonna buy it
And if I didn’t think it was worth one single try
I’d jump right on a big bird
And then I’d fly

I’ve been a puppet, a pauper,
A pirate, a poet,
A pawn and a king,
I’ve been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself laying
Flat on my face
I just pick myself up and get back in the race

That’s life
That’s life, and I can’t deny it
Many times I thought of cutting out
But my heart won’t buy it
But if there nothing shaking coming this here July
I’m going to roll myself up in a big ball
And die…

OK Go is a rock band originally from Chicago, Illinois, now residing in Los Angeles. The band is composed of Damian Kulash (lead vocals and guitar), Tim Nordwind (bass guitar and backing vocalist), Dan Konopka (drums and percussion) and Andy Ross (keyboards, guitar and backing vocals), who joined them in 2005, replacing Andy Duncan. The original members formed as OK Go in 1998 and released two studio albums before Duncan’s departure. The band’s video for «Here It Goes Again» won a Grammy Award for «Best Short-Form Music Video» in 2007. –>wikipedia

Ok Go is one of the bands i simply adore!!
They became known throuht their crazy video on youtube «Here it goes again» (you remember the one with the band dancing on treadmills!!! )
As for their concerts they are even crazier than their videos! They always have fresh ideas to share with their audience

Their latest album includes many interesting songs and of course many interesting videos. Here is «Wtf» which as the band has revealed is inspired by Prince.


A lot of work was needed for this next video too.
Ok Go had a video idea for the recorded version of «This Too Shall Pass». They approached Adam Sadowsky, president of Syyn Labs to design a Rube Goldberg inspired machine in which they would base their music video around. After months of preparation and 20 consecutive 18 hr days, they finally got the perfect take.

and here is the music video (:

You know you can’t keep letting it get you down
And you can’t keep dragging that dead weight around
Is it really all that much to lug around
Better run like hell when you hit the ground

When the morning comes
When the morning comes

Can’t stop those kids from dancing but why would you want to
Especially when you are already getting good?
‘Cause when your mind don’t move then your knees don’t bend
But don’t go blaming the kids again

When the morning comes
When the morning comes
When the morning comes

When the morning comes
When the morning comes
When the morning comes

Let it go, this too shall pass
Let it go, this too shall pass

(Let it go, this too shall pass)
[ OK Go Lyrics are found on http://www.songlyrics.com ]
You know you can’t keep letting it get you down
No, you can’t keep letting it get you down

(Let it go, this too shall pass)
Oh, is it really all that much to lug around
And you can’t keep letting it get you down

When the morning comes
Oh, you can’t keep letting it get you down
No, you can’t keep letting it get you down
(When the morning comes)

Νέα δεακαετία, νέος χρόνος, νέες περιπέτειες!

«all i know, all i know, love will save the day!! «

Καλή Χρονιά!

I can’t help but love this song by Lady Day.

Billie Holiday (1915 – 1959) was a true artist of her day. Her soulful, unique singing voice and her ability to boldly turn any material that she confronted into her own music made her a superstar of her time.

i'll be seeing you

Nicknamed Lady Day by her loyal friend and musical partner Lester Young, Holiday was a seminal influence on jazz and pop singing.

Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo.
Above all, she was admired for her deeply personal and intimate approach to singing.

timeless..

«If I have to sing like somebody else, then I don’t need to sing at all»
