“In 5 Months” Yes indeed, 5 to go, “And now, the end is getting near, and so I face the final curtain, my friends, I said clear, I state my case, which I am certain… …The record shows I took the blows, and did it my way” www.karaokeplay.com/songs/i-did-it-my-wa... Frank Sinatra, good fellow, he had a talent to sing songs from the heart, with a meaning, I miss that in music. Songs nowadays, may attempt to tell it as it is, or to tell the tale, but they do it in such a way that is nothing but a headache afterword. Where is the heart and soul in today’s singers? I love music, I grew up listening to music, and my mother always did her shores while singing. As kid, music was everywhere, now as a Middle age man, I sing in the shower, or I like to torture people if I get a chance to partake on a Karaoke section.
Yeah, “Video kill the radio star”, such a song bring back memories of times “not too long ago for me”, that now you can find in history books. I was left feeling like an Antique, as I browsed through my son’s history book, they were citing: “The fall of the Berlin wall”, those days of November 1989 they still vivid in my mind as I was in Germany when those events took place. worldfocus.org/blog/2010/01/01/full-show... It was a lot of commotion, the news coverage was immense, and the excitement in the streets was like waves of happiness euphoria and latter the frustration, the thought of those days is overwhelming at times. During those days I had a German girlfriend “Gabi”, “Sweet, lovely, Gabi”, and I was privilege enough to see the point view of the American media on TV, and Gabi would translate the German TV news as well as give me the 2 cents of what she and her friends thought about the situation. It was a time of re-discovery of their roots, and solidification for the German people, and it would not come with an inexpensive price tag. The Berlin wall, The Vietnam memorial, walls of historical events, I guess I must give in, I am history… www.blinkx.com/watch-video/walls-vietnam...
If now I think back of all I have done, of course I would change a few things, www.blinkx.com/watch-video/if-i-could-tu... don’t we all wish we could, of course, some may deny it, and use reasoning to accept their fortune, or the present, and why not, there is not a real way to go back in any case, so suck it all in, and blow it all out, relax and keep on rolling. Yes, you have to do like REO Speedwagon’s song keep on Rolling, I was fortunate enough to be at their concert the 31st Oct 2009, and yes, another piece of evidence, my teenager favorite rock stars are old, I am old too J www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVRo54-BbiU
“Time”, faithful keeper of glorious and shameful memories;
Too many to handle simultaneously unless I was an Elf:
Allowed me reveal solutions to my life’s controversies;
“Time”, Free me at once from your tight embrace;
Let me be honest to everyone to include myself,
Cause I do not want to disappear without a trace.
For in order to have peace of mind, I must return, as my time getting near, and I will pause for now with this old Spanish song “Volver” or in English “Return” from Carlos Gardel www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNoznXy28LI
God Bless you all, and thank you for keeping me company in my journey through time…
