Dina Carroll - The Perfect Year (1993)
IRL#4, UK#5



Lyrics:

Ring out the old
Bring in the new
A midnight wish to share with you
Your lips are warm, my head is light
Were we in love before tonight?

I don't need a crowded ballroom
Everything I need is here, if you're with me
Next year will be the perfect year

No need to hear the music play
Your eyes say all there is to say
The stars can fade
And they can shine
Long as your face is next to mine

I don't need a crowded ballroom
Everything I need is here, if you're with me
Next year will be the perfect year

We don't need a crowded ballroom
Everything I need is here, if you're with me
Next year will be the perfect year

It's New Year's Eve, and hopes are high
Dance one year in, kiss one goodbye
Another chance, another start
So many dreams to tease the heart

We don't need a crowded ballroom
Everything I need is here, if you're with me
Next year will be the perfect year

Cazwell - Ice Cream Truck (2010)



Lyrics:

Meet me at the ice cream truck
I'll buy you an ice cream
I'll whip out my drumstick
that will make your eyes gleam
lick it up quick before it melts on the floor
I got it!
uno-dos-tres-quatro gimme some more OK!
Meet me at the ice cream truck
I'll buy you an ice cream
I can test out my luck
you can play on my team
let's do the banana split
on the dance floor Got it!
uno-dos-tres-quatro gimme some more OK!

I met him at the school yard 'round quarter to three
we went out for cheeseburgers with extra cheese
I get my french fries crispy ketchup on the side
and when it comes to dessert this is how i ride I said

Meet me at the ice cream truck
I'll buy you an ice cream
I'll whip out my drumstick
that will make your eyes gleam
lick it up quick before it melts on the floor
I got it!
uno-dos-tres-quatro gimme some more OK!

You know where to find me from May to July
I'm on the sidewalk chillin lookin' all kinds of fly
sometimes I get low sometimes I get high
I like rainbow sprinkles on my ice cream pie
yeah right!

Meet me at the ice cream truck
I'll buy you an ice cream
I'll whip out my drumstick
that will make your eyes gleam
lick it up quick before it melts on the floor
I got it!
uno-dos-tres-quatro gimme some more OK!
Meet me at the ice cream truck
I'll buy you an ice cream
I can test out my luck
you can play on my team
let's do the banana split on the dance floor Got it!
uno-dos-tres-quatro gimme some more OK!

Relax take it easy
check it when you see me
I'm chillin with an ice tea,
watermelon icey
relax take it easy
check it when you see me
I'm chillin with an ice tea,
watermelon icey

Lyrics:

When you're away at work
I'm seeing this other guy
He's treating me really well
You know I don't ask for much

It's so hard to be alone
You're always gone
It's so hard to be alone
You're always gone

Ah-ah-ah-ah-I
Wanna feel the music take me away
Ah-ah-ah-ah-I
Feel the beat and the music take me away (Heey!)
Ah-ah-ah-ah-I (Yeaaah, yay!)
Wanna feel the music take me away (Yaay-iih-yaay-iih-yaay!)

Sorry to break your heart
(But you don't really give me much choice, do ya)
I have to live my life
(And all I wanna do is to dance and have fun)

It's so hard when you're away
I'm all alone
It's so hard when you're away
I'm all alone

Ah-ah-ah-ah-I
Wanna feel the music take me away (Yaay-iih-yaay-iih-yaay!)

Agnes - Release Me (2008)

Continuing on the Swedish theme, I am absolutely shocked that when this one has hit us is already 3 - yes T-H-R-E-E !!!, years ago! Time does fly Jesus Mother Mary! Although it didn't hit the commercial shelves until more than a year later, it did simmer underground for a while. Probably waiting to get the Cahill treatment, while finally made it to UK release, while the rest of Europe got treated to a rather wet flanel of the track. Love it! Love it! Love it! Interestingly, the Radio and the Club version had different videos made for Agnes Carlsson's 'Release Me'.

Agnes - Release Me - 7" Cahill Radio Mix (2008)



Lyrics:

Release me
Release my body
I know it's wrong
So why am I with you now
I say release me
'Cause I'm not able to
Convince myself
That I'm better off without you

Yeah, it's perfectly clear
That it's not what you need
I tell you that I don't care
But I don't want to
Anything that you say
I hear myself agree
And I don't recognize
What I've turned into

I don't know why I want you so
'Cause I don't need the heart break
I don't know what love addictive hold
You have on me I can't shake
No, I'm not in control
So let me go

Release me
Release my body
I know it's wrong
So why do I keep coming back
I say release me
'Cause I'm not able to
Convince myself
That I'm better off without you

I could sleep by myself
you would burn me alive
Find me somebody else
But I don't want to
Try to leave out the love
That goes against the grain
But I can rationalize it
If I have to

I don't know why I want you so
'Cause I don't need the heart break
I don't know what addictive hold
You have on me I can't shake
No, I'm not in control
So let me go

Release me
Release my body
I know it's wrong
So why do I keep coming back
I say release me
'Cause I'm not able to
Convince myself
That I'm better off without you

Im not in control, so let me go
Release me
Release my body
I know it's wrong
So why do I keep coming back
I say release me
'Cause I'm not able to
Convince myself
That I'm better off without you

Release me
Release my body
I know it's wrong
So why do I keep coming back
I say release me
'Cause I'm not able to
Convince myself
That I'm better off without you

Lyrics:

Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you, go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you, go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go till we're gone

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold you
In my life we'll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

You're here, there's nothing I fear
And I know that my heart will go on
We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Village People - Go west by scorpiomusic

Lyrics:

Come on, come on, come on, come on

(Together) We will go our way
(Together) We will leave someday
(Together) Your hand in my hand
(Together) We will make our plans
(Together) We will fly so high
(Together) Tell all our friends good-bye
(Together) We will start life new
(Together) This is what we'll do

(Go West) Life is peaceful there
(Go West) In the open air
(Go West) Where the skies are blue
(Go West) This is what we're gonna do

(Go West, this is what we're gonna do, Go West)

(Together) We will love the beach
(Together) We will learn and teach
(Together) Change our pace of life
(Together) We will work and strive
(I love you) I know you love me
(I want you) How could I disagree?
(So that's why) I make no protest
(When you say) You will do the rest

(Go West) Life is peaceful there
(Go West) In the open air
(Go West) Baby you and me
(Go West) This is our destiny
(Go West) Sun in wintertime
(Go West) We will do just fine
(Go West) Where the skies are blue
(Go West, this is what we're gonna do)

There where the air is free
we'll be (We'll be) what we want to be
Now if we make a stand
we'll find (We'll find) our promised land

(I know that) There are many ways
(To live there) In the sun or shade
(Together) We will find a place
(To settle) Where there's so much space
(Without rush) And the pace back East
(The hustling) Rustling just to feed
(I know I'm) Ready to leave too
(So that's what) We are gonna do

(What we're gonna do is
Go West) Life is peaceful there
(Go West) There in the open air
(Go West) Where the skies are blue
(Go West) This is what we're gonna do
(Life is peaceful there) Go West
(In the open air) Go West
(Baby, you and me) Go West
(This is our destiny)
Come on, come on, come on, come on

(Go West) Sun in wintertime
(Go West) We will feel just fine
(Go West) Where the skies are blue
(Go West) This is what we're gonna do
(Come on, come on, come on, come on)
(Go West)

Lyrics:

Made a wrong turn, Once or twice
Dug my way out, Blood and fire
Bad decisions, That's alright
Welcome to my silly life

Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood
Miss "no way, it's all good", It didn't slow me down
Mistaken, Always second guessing
Under estimated, Look, I'm still around

Pretty, pretty please
Don't you ever, ever feel
Like your less than Fuckin' perfect.
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like your nothing
You're fuckin' perfect to me.

You're so mean,
When you talk, About yourself, You are wrong.
Change the voices, In your head
Make them like you Instead.

So complicated,
Look happy, You'll make it!
Filled with so much hatred
Such a tired game.
It's enough, I've done all I can think of
Chased down all my demons, I've seen you do the same.
Oh, Pretty, pretty please
Don't you ever, ever feel
Like your less than fuckin' perfect.
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like your nothing
You're fuckin' perfect to me.

The whole world stares so I swallow the fear,
The only thing I should be drinking is an ice cold beer.
So cool in line and we try, try, try,
But we try too hard, it's a waste of my time.
Done looking for the critics, cause they're everywhere
They don't like my jeans, they don't get my hair
We change ourselves and we do it all the time

Why do we do that? Why do I do that?
(Why do I do that?)

[Yeah~, Ohh~ pretty pretty please, Ohh~]

Pretty, pretty please
Don't you ever, ever feel
Like your less than Fuckin' perfect.
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like your nothing
You're fuckin' perfect to me.

You're perfect, You're perfect
Pretty, pretty please
Don't you ever, ever feel
Like your less than Fuckin' perfect.
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like your nothing
You're fuckin' perfect to me

Band Aid - Do They Know It's Christmas (1984)

Little has changed in 27 years... - back in 1984 Midge Ure and Bob Geldof got the big-hitters of Pop in the UK and Ireland together to raise money for the affected of the famine in Ethiopia. Despite several decades of efforts to fight hunger and poverty, in 2011, again, millions of people have been affected by a fatal famine in Somalia... - Do they know it's Christmas? Probably not.

Band Aid - Do They Know It's Christmas (1984)



Lyrics:

Paul Young: It's Christmas time,
there's no need to be afraid.
At Christmas time
we let in light and banish shade

Boy George: And in our world of plenty
we can spread a smile of Joy
Throw your arms around the world
at Christmas time.

George Michael: But say a prayer,
Pray for the other ones.
At Christmas time

Simon LeBon: it's hard
but when you're having fun...
There's a world outside your window

Simon LeBon & Sting: and it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is
the bitter sting of tears
Where the Christmas bells that are ringing
are the clanging chimes of doom

Bono: Well, tonight thank God it's them instead of you.

All:

And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life.
Ohh....
Where nothing ever grows
No rain or rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Here's to you...
Raise a glass for everyone
Here's to them
Underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Feed the world...
Feed the world...

Feed the world,
Let them know it's Christmas time again.
Feed the world,
Let them know it's Christmas time again

Brad Kane & Lea Salonga - A Whole New World (1992)



Lyrics:

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I'm way up here
It's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you
Now I'm in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
Don't you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see
Hold your breath - it gets better
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment red-letter
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me

Nat King Cole - The Christmas Song (1944)

If there is one must-own Christmas album, Nat King Cole's The Christmas Song is the one to have. The album gets its title from the classic song, penned in 1944 by the legendary Mel Tormé specifically for him. As part of the Nat Cole Trio, Nat King Cole first recorded and released the carol in 1946, subsequently recording The Christmas Song four more times. The most enduring rendition remains his 1961 solo version, originally included on his album, The Nat King Cole Story and later added to a reissue of his album, The Magic of Christmas. This collection was later retitled The Christmas Song, and has retained that title to this day. The track was covered by countless artists, often attempting, but never quite reaching the original, among them: Christina Aguilera, Herb Alpert, Thomas Anders (yes, that one...), Stevie Wonder, Babyface, Justin Bieber & Usher, Michael Bolton, Toni Braxton, Garth Brooks, James Brown, Doris Day, ermmm... Michael Bublé, Celine Dion, The Carpenters, Chicago, Charlotte Church, Bing Crosby, Sammy Davis, Jr., Bob Dylan, Gloria Estefan...

Nat King Cole - The Christmas Song (1944)



Lyrics:

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping at your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
Help to make the season bright,
Tiny tots with their eyes all a-glow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh,
And ev'ry mother's child is gonna spy,
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
To kids from one to ninety-two,
Although it's been said
Many times, Many ways
Merry Christmas to you.

And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
To kids from one to ninety-two,
Although it's been said
Many times, Many ways
Merry Christmas to you.

Lyrics:

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is...
You

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you
You baby

I won't ask for much this Christmas
I don't even wish for snow
I'm just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe
I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won't even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeers click
'Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do
Baby all I want for Christmas is you
Ooh baby
All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children's
Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won't you bring me the one I really need
Won't you please bring my baby to me...

Oh I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for
I just want to see my baby
Standing right outside my door
Oh I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby all I want for Christmas is...
You

All I want for Christmas is you... baby

Faith Hill - Little Drummer Boy (2008)

The 'Little Drummer Boy', originally known as 'Carol of the Drum', was written by the American classical music composer and teacher Katherine Kennicott Davis in 1941 (yeah, I know, I also always thought it was much older!), based on a traditional Czech carol. It was recorded for the first time 1955 by the Trapp Family Singers. The lyrics relate to how a poor young boy, summoned by the Magi to the nativity where, without a gift for the infant Jesus, he played his drum. Faith Hill, a US American country singer, released her version in 2008 as part of her Christmas album 'Joy to the World'

Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum
A new born King to see, pa rum pum pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

So to honor Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
When we come.

Baby Jesus (in some versions 'little baby'), pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
That's fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum,

Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?

Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum,

Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum

To celabrate his lonelyness

Wir sind allein
Allein allein
Allein allein
Allein allein
Allein allein
We look into faces
Wait for a sign
Wir sind allein
Allein allein
Allein allein

A prisoner behind the walls
A heart away
Once to lead ours universe
Just a heart away
The time has come for us to laugh
A heart away
To celebrate our lonelyness

Wir sind allein
Allein allein
Allein allein
Allein allein
Allein allein
We look into faces
Wait for a sign
Wir sind allein
Allein allein
Allein allein

(allein allein...)
Allein allein
Allein allein
Allein allein
Allein allein
Sind wir allein
Allein allein
Allein allein
Wir sind allein
Allein allein
Allein allein
Allein allein...

Janet Jackson & Herb Alpert - Diamonds by welcomeback

Lyrics:

You tell me you care
But when I'm around you
It's like I'm not there
I need a reminder
Something can see
Something on my finger
Shining so brightly

Don't you know
Diamonds are a girls' best friend
When you go
They stay with me until the end
Don't you know
Diamonds are a girls' best - best friend
When you go
They stay with me until the end

Don't want your money
Don't want your key
Diamonds
Love don't come for free
Don't want your money
Don't want your key
Diamonds
Love don't come for free

You sent me some roses
But roses do die
You gave me some candy
It melted - nice try
I'm not that demanding
I have simple taste
I just want a token
That can't go to waste
Diamonds

Don't you know
Diamonds are a girls' best friend
When you go
They stay with me until the end
Don't you know
Diamonds are a girls' best - best friend
When you go
They stay with me until the end

Everything But The Girl - Missing by MeGustaTuMusica

Lyrics:

I step off the train
I'm walkin' down your street again
And pass your door
But you don't live there anymore
It's years since you've been there
And now you've disappeared somewhere
Like outer space
You've found some better place

And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you
Oh
(Like the deserts miss the rain)

Could you be dead?
You always were two steps ahead
Of ev'ryone
We'd walk behind while you would run
I look up at your house
And I can almost hear you shout, down to me
Where I always used to be

And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)

Back on the train
I ask why did I come again
Can I confess?
I've been hangin' 'round your old address
And the years have proved
To offer nothin' since you moved
You're long gone
But I can't move on

And I miss you
Oh-oh (Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you, yeah
(Like the deserts miss the rain) And I miss you

I step off the train
I'm walkin' down your street again
Pass your door
I guess you don't live there anymore
It's years since you've been there
And now you've disappeared somewhere
Like outer space
You've found some better place

And I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you, yeah
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you, and I miss you
(Like the deserts miss the rain)
And I miss you, yeah
(Like the deserts miss the rain)

Deserts miss the rain
(Like the deserts miss the rain) Like the deserts miss the rain
(Like the deserts miss the rain)

Lyrics:

The kisses of the sun - Were sweet I didn't blink
I let it in my eyes - Like an exotic drink
The radio playing songs - That I have never heard
I don't know what to say - Oh not another word

Just - la la la la la - It goes around the world
Just - la la la la la - It's all around the world
Just - la la la la la - And everybody's singing
La la la la la - And now the bells are ringing

La la la la la - la la la la la la la - la la la la la - la la la la la la la
La la la la la - la la la la la la la - la la la la la - la la la la la la la

Inside an empty room - My inspiration flows
Now wait to hear the tune - Around my head it goes
The magic melody - You want to sing with me
Just la la la la la - the music is the key
And now the night is gone - Still it goes on and on
So deep inside of me - I long to set it free
I don't know what to do - Just can't explain to you
I don't know what to say - Oh not another word

Just - la la la la la - It goes around the world
Just - la la la la la - It's all around the world
Just - la la la la la - And everybody's singing
La la la la la - And now the bells are ringing

La la la la la - la la la la la la la - la la la la la - la la la la la la la
La la la la la - la la la la la la la - la la la la la - la la la la la la la

The kisses of the sun

La la la la la - It goes around the world
Just - la la la la la - It's all around the world
Just - la la la la la - And everybody's singing
La la la la la - And now the bells are ringing

Lyrics:

Thank you for coming home
I'm sorry that the chairs are all worn
I left them here I could have sworn

These are my salad days
Slowly being eaten away
Just another play for today
Oh but I'm proud of you,but I'm proud of you

Nothing left to make me feel small
Luck has left me standing so tall

Gold
Always believe in your soul
You've got the power to know
You're indestructable
Always believe in,because you are
Gold
Glad that you're bound to return
There's something I could have learned
You're indestructable,always believe in

After the rush has gone
I hope you find a little more time
Remember we were partners in crime

It's only two years ago
The man with the suit and the pace
You knew that he was there on the case
Now he's in love with you,he's in love with you
My love is like a hard prison wall
But you could leave me standing so tall

Gold
Always believe in your soul
You've got the power to know
You're indestructable
Always believe in,because you are
Gold
I'm glad that you're bound to return
Something I could have learned
You're indestructable,always believe in

My love is like a hard prison wall
But you could leave me standing so tall

Gold
Always believe in your soul
You've got the power to know
You're indestructable
Always believe in,because you are
Gold
I'm glad that you're bound to return
Something I could have learned
You're indestructable, always believe in

Frankie Goes To Hollywood - The power of love by Davidof-14

Lyrics:

I'll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door

Feels like fire
I'm so in love with you
Dreams are like angels
They keep bad at bay-bad at bay
Love is the light
Scaring darkness away-yeah

I'm so in love with you
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

I'll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door
When the chips are down I'll be around
With my undying, death-defying
Love for you

Envy will hurt itself
Let yourself be beautiful
Sparkling love, flowers
And pearls and pretty girls
Love is like an energy
Rushin' rushin' inside of me

The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

This time we go sublime
Lovers entwine-divine divine
Love is danger, love is pleasure
Love is pure-the only treasure

I'm so in love with you
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

The power of love
A force from above
Cleaning my soul
The power of love
A force from above
A sky-scraping dove

Flame on burn desire
Love with tongues of fire
Purge the soul
Make love your goal

I'll protect you from the hooded claw
Keep the vampires from your door

Wham - Last Christmas by hushhush112

Lyrics:

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
(You gave it away)
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special
(Special)

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby, do you recognize me?
Well, it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me

(Happy Christmas)
I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying 'I love you,' I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
(You gave it away)
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special
(Special)

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special
(Special)

Oh, oh my baby

Crowded room, friends with tired eyes
I'm hiding from you and your soul of ice
My god, I thought you were someone to rely on
Me, I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man undercover but you tore him apart
Ooh hoo, now I've found a real love
You'll never fool me again

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
(You gave it away)
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special
(Special)

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
(You gave me away)
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special
(Special)

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
(Gave you my heart)
A man undercover but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special
(Special)

Someone
Someone
I'll give it to someone
I'll give it to someone special

Who'll give me something in return
(I'll give it to someone)
Hold my heart and watch it burn
(I'll give it to someone)
(I'll give it to someone)
(I'll give it to someone special)

I thought you were here to stay
How can you love me for a day?
I thought you were someone special

Gave you my heart
(I'll give it to someone)
(I'll give it to someone)

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
You gave it away
(I'll give it to someone)
(I'll give it to someone)

Special.

Peter Auty - Walking in the Air (1982)

One of my favourite Christmas - or Winter songs is 'Walking in the Air'.
The song was written by Howard Blake for the 1982 animated film of Raymond Briggs' 1978 children's book 'The Snowman', which aired for the first time on Channel 4 that year. In the film the song was performed by St Paul's Cathedral choirboy Peter Auty.
For the subsequent single release, which reached number five in the UK pop charts in 1985, the vocals were sung by Welsh chorister Aled Jones, who became a popular celebrity on the strength of his performance. Aled's version was not an official The Snowman tie-in though it was authorised by Howard Blake. 'Walking in the Air' has subsequently been covered by several different artists, in a variety of styles.

Peter Auty today ->

The song forms the centrepiece of The Snowman, which has become a seasonal perennial on British television. The story relates the fleeting adventures of a young boy, and a snowman who has come to life. In the second part of the story, the boy and the snowman fly to the North Pole. "Walking in the Air" is the theme for the journey. They attend a party of snowmen, at which the boy is the only human. They meet Father Christmas and his reindeer, and the boy is given a scarf with a snowman pattern. Essential viewing :-)

Peter Auty - Walking in the Air (1981)



Lyrics:

We're walking in the air
We're floating in the moonlit sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly

I'm holding very tight
I'm riding in the midnight blue
I'm finding I can fly so high above with you

Far across the world
The villages go by like dreams
The rivers and the hills, the forests and the streams

Children gaze open mouthed
Taken by surprise
Nobody down below believes their eyes

We're surfing in the air
We're swimming in the frozen sky
We're drifting over icy mountains floating by

Suddenly swooping low
On an ocean deep
Rousing up a mighty monster from his sleep

And walking in the air
We're dancing in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly

We're walking in the air
We're walking in the air

Lyrics:

I'm driving home for Christmas
Oh, I can't wait to see those faces
I'm driving home for Christmas, yea
Well I'm moving down that line
And it's been so long
But I will be there
I sing this song
To pass the time away
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas

It's gonna take some time
But I'll get there
Top to toe in tailbacks
Oh, I got red lights all around
But soon there'll be a freeway
Get my feet on holy ground

So I sing for you
Though you can't hear me
When I get through
Oh and feel you near me
Driving in my car
I am driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas

With a thousand memories

I take look at the driver next to me
He's just the same
Just the same

Top to toe in tailbacks
Oh, I got red lights all around.
I'm driving home for Christmas, yea
Get my feet on holy ground

So I sing for you
Though you can't hear me
When I get through
Oh and feel you near me
Driving in my car
Driving home for Christmas
Driving home for Christmas
With a thousand memories.

I take a look at the driver next to me
He's just the same
He's driving home, driving home
Driving home for Christmas

You've got me feeling hella good
So let's just keep on dancing

Lyrics:

I blame you for the moonlit sky
and the dream that died
with the eagles' flight
I blame you for the moonlit nights
when I wonder why
are the seas still dry?
don't blame this sleeping satellite

Did we fly to the moon too soon
did we squander the chance
in the rush of the race
the reason we chase is lost in romance
and still we try
to justify the waste
for a taste of man's greatest adventure

I blame you for the moonlit sky
and the dream that died
with the eagles' flight
I blame you for the moonlit nights
when I wonder why
are the seas still dry?
don't blame this sleeping satellite

Have we lost what it takes to advance?
have we peaked too soon?
if the world is so green
then why does it scream under a blue moon
we wonder why
If the earth's sacrificed
for the price of it's greatest treasure

I blame you for the moonlit sky
and the dream that died
with the eagles' flight
I blame you for the moonlit nights
when I wonder why
are the seas still dry?
don't blame this sleeping satellite

and when we shoot for the stars
what a giant step
have we got what it takes
to carry the weight of this concept
or pass it by like a shot in the dark
miss the mark with a sense of adventure

I blame you for the moonlit sky
and the dream that died
with the eagles' flight
I blame you for the moonlit nights
when I wonder why
are the seas still dry?
don't blame this sleeping satellite

Lyrics:

That's what my heart yearns for now - love and pride.
That's what my heart yearns for now - love and pride.

Start your journey early or maybe later
get your boots on

Look for rainbows
it's cloudy

Take your hairdryer
blow them all away.

In you I've found a story I want to keep hearing.
In you I see all colours
not just black or white.
In you I find a reason and hope for all dreamers

You are my fill
you're my supply of love and pride.
That's what my heart yearns for now - love and pride. . . .

Knowing
sensing
seeing
eating
sleeping
that's just being.
Touching
testing
loving
wanting and taking

more love and more pride.
In you I've found a story I want to keep hearing. . . .

I'm taking it round the world - some love and pride.
That's what my heart yearns for now - love and pride. . . .
That's what my heart yeanis for now - love and pride. . . .

PF Project ft. Ewan McGregor - Choose Life (1997)


PF Project feat. Ewan McGregor - Choose Life (1997)



Lyrics:

Choose life.
Choose a job.
Choose a career.
Choose a family.
Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers.
Choose leisurewear and matching luggage.
Choose a three-piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics.
Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning.
Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth.
Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked-up brats you have spawned to replace yourself.

Choose your future. Choose life.

I chose not to choose life: I chose something else.

Lyrics:

Uh huh huh,
Oh yeah,
Work, work

Somebody told me,
"Boy, everything she wants is everything she sees"
I guess I must have loved you.
'Cause I said you were the perfect girl for me,
Maybe,
But now we're six months older,
And everything you want and everything you see,
Is out of reach, not good enough,
I don't know what the hell you want from me but boy

Uh huh huh,
Oh, oh,
Uh huh huh,
Doo doo doo,
La la la la

Somebody tell me,
Won't you tell me,
Why I work so hard for you?
All to give you money
All to give you money

Some people work for a living,
Some people work for fun,
Girl, I just work for you.
They told me marriage was a give and take,
Well, show me you can take you've got some giving to do.
And now you tell me that you're having my baby,
I'll tell you that I'm happy if you want me to
One step further and my back will break,
If my best isn't good enough
Than how can it be good enough for two?
I can't work any harder than I do

Somebody tell me,
Won't you tell me,
Why I work so hard for you?
All to give you money,
All to give you money

Oh,
Why do I do the things I do?
I'd tell you if I knew.
My God,
I don't even think that I love you,
Won't you tell me,
Tell me, tell me, tell me

How could you settle for a boy like me,
When all I could see was the end of the week
All the things we sign,
And the things we buy,
Ain't gonna keep us together,
It's just a matter of time.

My situation,
Never changes.
Walking in that manner through that door,
Like a stranger,
But the wages,
I give you all you say you want is love

And all I can see is the end of the week,
All the things we sign,
And the things we buy,
Ain't gonna keep us together
Girl, it's just a matter of time.

Faith Hill - There You'll Be (2001)


Kinda odd this one: while the crew were filming the movie 'Pearl Harbor' in 2001 to mark the 60th anniversary of the US' entry into World WarII by means of being attacked on home soil, the 9/11 attacks happened; again, triggering the US to engage in military activity abroad. Today marks the 70th anniversary of the tragic events in Pearl Harbor; marking yet another statistic: the 'War on Terror' now outstrips both, World Wars I & II in length... - Faith Hill provided the Soundtrack to 'Pearl Harbor', the movie.

Lyrics:

When I think back
On these times
And the dreams
We left behind
I'll be glad 'cause
I was blessed to get
To have you in my life
When I look back
On these days
I'll look and see your face
You were right there for me

In my dreams
I'll always see you soar
Above the sky
In my heart
There will always be a place
For you for all my life
I'll keep a part
Of you with me
And everywhere I am
There you'll be
And everywhere I am
There you'll be

Well you showed me
How it feels
To feel the sky
Within my reach
And I always
Will remember all
The strength you
Gave to me
Your love made me
Make it through
Oh, I owe so much to you
You were right there for me

'Cause I always saw in you
My light, my strength
And I want to thank you
Now for all the ways
You were right there for me
You were right there for me
For always

In my dreams
I'll always see you soar
Above the sky
In my heart
There will always be a place
For you for all my life
I'll keep a part
Of you with me
And everywhere I am
There you'll be
And everywhere I am
There you'll be
There you'll be

[Beyonce] Why are we the ones who suffer
[Shakira] I have to let go
[Beyonce] He won't be the one to cry

[Beyonce] (Ay) Let's not kill the karma
(Ay) Let's not start a fight
(Ay) It's not worth the drama
For a beautiful liar
[Shakira] Can't we laugh about it (Ha Ha Ha)
(Oh) It's not worth our time
(Oh) We can live without 'em
Just a beautiful liar

[Shakira] I trusted him, but when I followed you, I saw you together
[Beyonce] I didn't know about you then 'till I saw you with him again
[Shakira] I walked in on your love scene, slow dancing
[Beyonce] You stole everything, how can you say I did you wrong

[Shakira] You never know
[Beyonce] When the pain and heartbreak's over
[Shakira] I have to let go
[Beyonce] The innocence is gone

[Beyonce] (Ay) Let's not kill the karma
(Ay) Let's not start a fight
(Ay) It's not worth the drama
For a beautiful liar
[Shakira] Can't we laugh about it (Ha Ha Ha)
(Oh) It's not worth our time
(Oh) We can live without 'em
Just a beautiful liar

[Shakira] Tell me how to forgive you
When it's me who's ashamed
[Beyonce] And I wish could free you
Of the hurt and the pain
(Both) But the answer is simple
He's the one to blame

(Hey)

[Beyonce] (Ay) Let's not kill the karma

Lyrics:

Don't worry, I won't hurt you
I only want you to have some fun

I was dreaming when I wrote this,
Forgive me if it goes astray.
But when I woke up there this mornin',
Could've sworn it was judgment day.
The sky was all purple,
There were people running everywhere,
Tryin' to run from the destruction,
You know I didn't even care.

'Cause they say 2,000 zero zero party over, oops! Out of time!
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999!

I was dreaming when I wrote this,
So sue me if I go too fast.
But life is just a party
And parties weren't meant to last.
War is all around us,
My mind says "Prepare to fight."
So if I gotta die,
I'm gonna listen to my body tonight.

Yeah, they say 2,000 zero zero party over, oops! Out of time!
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999! (Yeah, yeah)

People, let me tell you somethin'
If you didn't come to party,
Don't bother knockin' on my door.
I got a lion in my pocket
And, baby, he's ready to roar. (Yeah)
Everybody's got a bomb,
We could all die any day. (Oh)
But before I let that happen,
I'll dance my life away.

Oh, they say 2,000 zero zero party over, oops! Out of time!
(We're runnin' out of time)
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999!
(We gonna, we gonna, oh!)

Say it one more time.
2,000 zero zero party over, oops! Out of time! (No, no)
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999!
(We're gonna, we gonna)

Alright, 1999!
You say it, 1999!
1999 (1999)

Don't stop, don't stop, say it one more time.
2,000 zero zero party over, oops! Out of time! (Yeah, yeah)
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999!
(We gonna, we're gonna)

Yeah, 1999 (1999)
Don't you wanna go? (1999)
Don't you wanna go? (1999)
We could all die any day (1999)
I don't wanna die, I'd rather dance my life away (1999)
Listen tp what I'm tryin' to say
Everybody, everybody say party!
Come on now, you say it (Party!)
That's right, everybody say (Party!) {repeat in BG}
Can't run from revelation, no!
Sing it for your nation, y'all!
Dreaming when you're singin', baby!
Say the telephone a-ringin', mama, now!
Come on, come on, you say!
Everybody, two times!
Work it down to the ground, I'm sayin'
(Oh baby, say it again)
(Oh, shake your body, baby!)
That's right, come on, sing the song!
That's right, everybody say!
Got a lion in my pocket mama, say!
Ah, and he's ready to roar!
Yeah!

Lyrics:

If I asked you to stay would you give me forever
If I begged for your kisses would you give me more
If I opened my heart and stood naked before you
would you know how to stand there and look in my eyes

Is it meant for just you
Or meant for someone else

How can I, How can I be sure
that you love me
Like I love you
How can I, How can I really believe that you're
gonna love me
Like I love you

If I opened my heart and stood naked before you
would you know how to stand there and look in my eyes

Is it meant for just you
Or meant for someone else

How can I, How can I be sure
that you love me
Like I love you
How can I, How can I really believe that you're
gonna love me
Like I love you

I won’t lie about it
Not a day goes by
I don’t think about it
Always on my mind
Do I dare to trust you
Do I trust myself
Is it meant for just you
Or meant for someone else

How can I, How can I be sure
that you love me
Like I love you
How can I, How can I really believe that you're
gonna love me
Like I love you

How can I, How can I be sure
that you love me
Like I love you
How can I, How can I really believe that you're
gonna love me
Like I love you

Lyrics:

I've never been closer
I've tried to understand
That certain feeling
Carved by another's hand
But it's too late to hesitate
We can't keep on living like this
Leave no track
Don't look back
Chorus:
All I desire
Temptation
Keep climbing higher and higher
Temptation
Adorable creatures
Temptation
With unacceptable features
Temptation
Trouble is coming
Temptation
It's just the high cost of loving
Temptation
You can take it or leave it
Temptation
But you'd better believe it
You've got to make me an offer
That cannot be ignored
So let's head for home now
Everything I have is yours
Step by step and day by day
Every second counts I can't break away
Leave no trace
Hide your face
Chorus
Keep us from temptation
Lead us not into temptation
Trying to find it
Temptation
You've got to get up behind it
Temptation
Put your dime in the hot slot
Temptation
But it's a million to one shot
Temptation
You think that you're right no
Temptation
You're going to fake it tonight now
Temptation
Give me a breakdown
Temptation
Because it's time for a shakedown

Lyrics:

I'm wishin' on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishin' on a dream
To follow what it means

I'm wishin' on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishin' on a dream
To follow what it means

And I wish on all the rainbows
That I see
I wish on all the people
Who really dream

And I'm wishin' on tommorow
Praying it'll come
And I'm wishin' on all the lovin'
We've ever done

I never thought I'd see
A time when you would be
So far away from home
So far away from me

Just think of all the moments
That we spent
I just can't let you go,
For me, you were meant

And I didn't mean to hurt you,
But I know
That in the game of love,
You reap what you sow

I feel it's time we should make up, baby
I feel it's time for us to get back together
Make the best of things, oh baby,
When we're together,
Whether or never.

I feel it's time we should make up, baby,
I feel it's time for us to get back together
Make the best of things, oh baby,
When we're together,
Whether or never
Oh woh woh, ooooooo, ooooo

I'm wishin' on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishin' on a dream
To follow what it means

And I wish on all the rainbows
That I see
I wish on all the people
We'll never be

And I'm hopin' on all the days to come
And days to go
And I'm hopin' on days of
Lovin' you so

I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are [follow where you are]
I'm wishing on a star, oh oh,
And I wish on all the rainbows that I see

Oooo, oh oh oh oh oh oh,
[Wishin' on a, wishin' on a, wishin' on a]
Wishin' on a star

Ooo. to follow where you are
[Wishin' on a, wishin' on a, wishin' on a]
Wishin' on a star

I'm wishin'

Ooooo, ooooooooo
[Wishin' on a, wishin' on a, wishin' on a, wishin' on a star]
[Wishin' on a, wishin' on a, wishin' on a]
Wishin' on a star
