Single of the Day

 

 

 

Happy Birthday, Ms. Patti!

And happy New Year!

What a friend you are…!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
I’ve stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains,
I’ve walked and I’ve crawled on six crooked highways,
I’ve stepped in the middle of seven sad forests,
I’ve been out in front of a dozen dead oceans,
I’ve been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard,
And it’s a hard, and it’s a hard, it’s a hard, and it’s a hard,
And it’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.
Oh, what did you see, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what did you see, my darling young one?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin’,
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin’,
I saw

 

 

 

 

 

On the road again

Canned_Heat_1970Canned Heat, 1965, Single of the Day

 

 

Siamo di nuovo sulla Strada. Cominciamo a camminare, insieme.

Well, I’m so tired of crying, but i’m out
on the road again.
– I’m on the road again.
Well, I’m so tired of crying, but I’m out
on the road again.
– I’m on the road again.
I ain’t got no woman
Just to call my special friend.
You know the first time I traveled out
in the rain and snow,
– In the rain and snow.
You know the first time I traveled out
in the rain and snow,
– In the rain and snow.
I didn’t have no payroll,
Not even no place to go.
And my dear mother left me when
I was quite young,
– When I was quite young.
And my dear mother left me when
I was quite young,
– When I was quite young.
She said “Lord, have mercy
On my wicked son.”
Take a hint from me, mama, please
don’t you cry no more,
– Don’t you cry no more.
Take a hint from me, mama, please
don’t you cry no more,
– Don’t you cry no more.
‘Cause it’s soon one morning
Down the road I’m going.
But I aint going down that
long old lonesome road
All by myself.
But I aint going down that
long old lonesome road
All by myself.
I can’t carry you, Baby,
Gonna carry somebody else.

Cheers, wherever you want to go

323834_1Ted Danson, or Sam Malone…?, Single of the Day
Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.Wouldn’t you like to get away?Sometimes you want to go

Where everybody knows your name,
and they’re always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows
Your name.

You wanna go where people know,
people are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows
your name.

You wanna go where people know,
people are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows
your name.

 

And…full lyrics never actually aired:

Making your way in the world today
Takes everything you’ve got;
Taking a break from all your worries
Sure would help a lot.
Wouldn’t you like to get away?

All those night when you’ve got no lights,
The check is in the mail;
And your little angel
Hung the cat up by it’s tail;
And your third fiance didn’t show;

Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
And they’re always glad you came;
You want to be where you can see,
Our troubles are all the same;
You want to be where everybody knows your name.

Roll out of bed, Mr. Coffee’s dead;
The morning’s looking bright;
And your shrink ran off to Europe,
And didn’t even write;
And your husband wants to be a girl;

Be glad there’s one place in the world
Where everybody knows your name,
And they’re always glad you came;
You want to go where people know,
People are all the same;
You want to go where everybody knows your name.

Where everybody knows your name,
And they’re always glad you came;
Where everybody knows your name,
And they’re always glad you came…

Hair in the air

Spend 6 minutes to think what we are going through

 

We starve, look at one another, short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes
Somewhere, inside something there is a rush of
Greatness, who knows what stands in front of
Our lives, I fashion my future on films in space
Silence tells me secretly
Everything
Everything
Manchester, England, England
Manchester, England, England
Across the Atlantic Sea
And I’m a genius, genius
I believe in God
And I believe that God believes in Claude
That’s me, that’s me, that’s me
We starve, look at one another, short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes
Singing our space songs on a spider web sitar
Life is around you and in you
Answer for Timothy Leary, dearie
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in
Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in
The sunshine in

Dream a better way

Tim+Hanauer+TIM_Hanauer_MAIN_PHOTO_lower_r Tim Hanauer, single of the day

 

 

 

 

You have never been so happy
Dancing, swinging, laughing at me
Smile on your face
is happiness for all days, oh oh
Spin around, you say
tangled up together in this place, oh yeah
tommorow’s going on forever

couldnt even dream a better
couldnt even dream a better way

you are everything I need
happy ever after will be
couldnt even dream a better
couldnt even dream a better way

all that you say
all that you mean to me
all that you say
counts all our yesterdays

couldnt even dream a better
couldnt even dream a better way..
a better way..a better way
I have never been so happy
Dancing, swinging, laughing at me
Smile on my face
is happiness for all days, oh oh

flowers in the garden grow
sun will shine on us below
on our days
growing up and old together
couldnt even dream a better
couldnt even dream a better way

you are everything I need
happy ever after will be
couldnt even dream a better
once upon a life together
couldnt even dream a better way

DUO project to share with all

DEpatre

Rino De Patre, single del giorno

“Comporre musica per me è un’esigenza e la chitarra è un <prolungamento> del mio essere. Persone, luoghi, volti, sentimenti, istanti: tutto ciò si trasforma nella mia mente e nella mia anima, in note, melodie e ritmi, come in un caleidoscopio multiforme di luci e colori”.

Così parla di sé Rino De Patre e così parlano di lui: “E’ come uno scrigno che contiene tante preziosità (…) una musica che è anche poesia…” (Giorgio Gaslini).

Rino assorbe da jazz, folk, tango, bossanova, li contiene tutti, e miscela con “Antonio Leofreddi,  un violista di eccezionale bravura. La dolcezza e il ritmo della chitarra si uniscono alle sonorità e al timbro particolare della viola talvolta colorata con l’effettistica analogica e digitale;  il tocco rapido e netto della chitarra, rincorre il suono prolungato e melodico della viola per creare un’atmosfera particolare, unica per chi ascolta. La perfetta sintonia e l’intesa che si crea quando suoniamo, sono un valore aggiunto per la mia musica”.

Il Rino De Patre DUO Project sarà sabato 22 marzo al Koro, alle 21.

Koro, via Pastrengo, 16 (zona Isola) Milano. – https://www.facebook.com/Koro2013
