Eartha Kitt - Santa baby / Where is my man / C'est Si Bon

Λίγο πριν κλεισει τα 82 ανήμερα των Χριστουγέννων μας αποχαιρέτησε η Eartha Kitt. Ο Orson Welles της είχε δώσει το προσωνύμιο "the most exciting woman in the world."

Santa baby



Santa Baby, slip a sable under the tree, For me.
been an awful good girl, Santa baby,
so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa baby, a 54 convertible too,
Light blue.
I'll wait up for you dear,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I've missed,
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed,
Next year I could be just as good,
If you'll check off my Christmas list,

Santa baby, I wanna yacht,
And really that's not a lot,
Been an angel all year,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa honey, there's one thing I really do need,
The deed
To a platinum mine,
Santa honey, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex,
And checks.
Sign your 'X' on the line,
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight.

Come and trim my Christmas tree,
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's,
I really do believe in you,
Let's see if you believe in me,

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing,
A ring.
I don't mean on the phone,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight,
Hurry down the chimney tonight,
Hurry, tonight.

Where is my man



I don't wanna be alone - where is my baby?
I don't wanna be alone - where is my man?
spend hours by the phone - where is my baby?
chew my fingers to the bone - where is my man?
I need a man who can take me then tount me and make me
Buy the things that I so richly desenre.
A man who knows what I require
the things that I desire -
Is there anyone out there who has the nenre?
I spend hours by the phone - where is my baby?
I chew my fingers to the bone - where is my man?
Where is my baby? He can't be far.
Look for an Ascot
a big cigar
tell him to find me
Send his car to this address I have to stress I need him now.
I don't wanna be alone - where is my baby?
I don't wanna be alone - where is my man?
The kind of man that I adore's the kind of man that gives me more
Of all the better things in life that aren't free.
Such things as summer by the sea
the Hamptons
Malibu
Capri.
The kind of man
Who comes alive
When he comes near Rodeo Drive
Is the kind of man
Who winds my heart
With style and class.
You know I've tried
Some other men
The kind with zeros
Lessthanten
But everytime I grab
The ring it's always brass.
I don't wanna be alone -
Where is my baby? . . .
I don't wanna be alone -
Where is my baby? . . .


C'est Si Bon



C'est si bon,
De partir n'im porte ou,
Bras desus bras dessous,
En chantant des chansons,

Ce'st si bon,
De se dir' desmots doux,
Des petite rien du tout,
Mais qui en dissent long.

C'est si bon,
Lovers say that in France,
When they thrill to romance,
It means that itt's so good.

C'est si bon,
So I say it to you,
Like the French people do,
Because it's oh, so good.

Every word, every sigh,
Every kiss, dear,
Leads to only one thought,
And it's this, dear,
Nothing else can replace,
Just your slightest embrace,
And if you only would be my own,
For the rest of my days,
I will whisper this phrase,
My darling, c'est si bon!

Sixpence None The Richer - Angels We Have Heard On High



The_Dawn_of_Grace η Χριστουγεννιάτικη πρόταση των Sixpence None the Richer.
Το Angels We Have Heard On High που είναι το πρώτο κομμάτι του άλμπουμ, δίνουν δωρεάν μέσα από το προφίλ τους στο Myspace και Lastfm και μπορείτε να κατεβάσετε και από εδώ

Angels we have heard on high,
Singing sweetly through the night,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their brave delight.

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why these songs of happy cheer?
What great brightness did you see?
What glad tiding did you hear?
(*Refrain)
Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee
Christ, the Lord, the new-born King.
*Refrain

See him in a manger laid
Whom the angels praise above;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
While we raise our hearts in love.

*Refrain

Το Παραμύθι της Μουσικής


Μια από τις καλύτερες προτάσεις για δώρο για μικρούς και μεγάλους είναι το ηχητικό ζωντάνεμα του Παραμυθιού της Μουσικής της Βασιλικής Νευροκοπλή, συνδυασμένου με τη μουσική του Κυριάκου Καλαϊτζίδη στο cd που κυκλοφόρησε αυτές τις μέρες από τις εκδόσεις Λιβάνη. Ζωντανεύει πραγματικά η όμορφη και διδακτική ιστορία του "Παραμυθιού" μέσα από την ζεστή αφήγηση και την θαυμάσια μουσική. Πολλοί σπουδαίοι μουσικοί από χώρες της Μεσογείου μαζί με το μουσικό σχήμα των "Εν Χορδαίς" προσφέρουν ένα υπέροχο μουσικό ταξίδι.
Περισσότερες πληροφορίες στο blog της Βασιλικής Νευροκοπλή όπου ακούγεται κι ένα απόσπασμα.

Coldplay - Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas



Χριστουγεννιάτικες ευχές με το Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas από τους Coldplay, που δόθηκαν δωρεάν από τη σελίδα του BBC στις 19 Δεκεμβρίου και η οποία δίνει σα χριστουγεννιάτικο δώρο κάθε μέρα ένα τραγούδι από τις 13 έως τις 24 Δεκεμβρίου

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on, our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on, our troubles will be far away

Here we are, as in olden days
Happy golden days of your
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us
Once more

Through the years, we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

The National - You've Done It Again, Virginia



Από το πολύ καλό EP The Virginia (ουσιαστικά είναι άλμπουμ) που κυκλοφόρησαν φέτος οι The National

You had fun, but you couldn’t get him out of the car
I guess mama’s boy(s-?) only go so far
You went in and put a record on
To make it sound like someone was home
And thanked yourself for pouring yourself a drink

Try to figure out and laugh yourself to the showers
Burn yourself alive and join the monster squad
They say in this place you can reinvent yourself

Well you’ve done it again, Virginia
Made another masterpiece while I was dreaming
How does it feel to feel like you?
Brilliant sugar, brilliant sugar, brilliant sugar, turn over

A cool, tall, drink of water
is all you ever wanted to be
And if you had another wish to wish
you’d be fun and moving

But you can’t talk to people, right?
You can’t tell a story
You’re tall, long legged
and your heart’s full of liquor
And me and everybody are just ice in a glass

Try to figure out and laugh yourself to the showers
Burn yourself alive and join the monster squad
They say in this place you can reinvent yourself

Well you’ve done it again, Virginia
Made another masterpiece while I was dreaming
How does it feel to feel like you?
Brilliant sugar, brilliant sugar, brilliant sugar turn over

Department of Eagles - No One Does It Like You





Πρώτο σινγκλ από το πρόσφατο άλμπουμ των Department of Eagles, In Ear Park . Οι D.O.E. διαθέτουν δωρεάν μέσα από την ιστοσελίδα τους το No One Does It Like You αλλά και το In Ear Park
-=-=-=-=-=-
Out in the morning come
You don't need to ask an alibi
And in the morning comes
You don't need to be so honest

And in the morning come
You don't need to ask an alibi
And in the morning comes
You don't need to breathe so easy

I laughed so hard I fell down
I cursed these lanes I walked on

No one does it like you
No one does it like you
I tried so hard
But no one does it like you
No one does it like you
But I tried so hard

I tried so hard
I tried so hard

The Waterboys - Kiss the wind



Τα 50 έκλεισε χθες 14 Δεκεμβρίου ο Mike Scott ηγέτης των The Waterboys, που κυκλοφόρησαν φέτος τη συλλογή με ακυκλοφόρητο υλικό "Kiss the wind". Το άλμπουμ κυκλοφόρησε μόνο μέσω ιντερνετ.

Once upon a time, a time, a time, a time, a time, a time
I lived here
Once upon a time, a time, a time, a time, a time, a time
I lived here

I lay my head on a pillow of sky
and I kiss the wind
and heard it sigh

Once upon a time
I lived here
In the fever of a dream, a dream, a dream, a dream, a dream, a dream
I loved here
In the fever of a dream, a dream, a dream, a dream, a dream, a dream
I loved here

Fell, heart and body
soul and mind
I left all over worlds
behind
In the fever of a dream
I loved here

The hour has come, its come, its come, its come, its come, its come, its come, its come
to leave here
The hour has come, its come, its come, its come, its come, its come, its come, its come
to leave here

I'll take whatever
is mine to take
Free my heart before
it breaks
The hour has come
to leave here

Minus the Bear - Guns & Ammo / Pachuca Sunrise

Στο EP Acoustics που κυκλοφόρησαν οι Minus the Bear παρουσιάζουν το καινούριο
Guns & Ammo


και άλλα παλιότερα κομμάτια σε ακουστική εκτέλεση ανάμεσα στα οποία και το
Pachuca Sunrise


Midnight on a beach in the Mediterranean
And I miss you
Even here, taking it all in
The sand, silvered, carries the moon on its shoulders
Is it possible to put this night to tune, and move it to you?

Don't cry, I'll bring this home to you,
If I can make this night light enough to move
Don't cry, i'll bring this home to you

Cargo ships move by, tracing on the horizon line
There's a luster from the city lights on the waves that kiss our feet
And we're thinkin' of goin' in (thinkin' of goin' in),
The time's getting thin

Don't cry I'll bring this home to you,
If I can make this night light enough to move
Don't cry I'll bring this home to you,
If I can make this, if I can make this...

Don't cry I'll bring this home to you,
If I can make this night light enough to move
Don't cry I'll bring this home to you

This is a city for not sleeping; The clocks are set by feel
At this moment, from where I sit, none of it seems real

Don't cry I'll bring this home to you,
If I can make this night light enough to move

Don't cry I'll bring this home to you,
If I can make this night light enough to move

If I can make this, if I can make this move
If I can make this move

Ray LaMontagne - Meg White



Τρίτο στούντιο άλμπουμ το Gossip in the Grain για το Ray LaMontagne που αφιερώνει ένα από τα τραγούδια στη Meg White των The White Stripes.

Meg White
You're alright
In fact I think you're pretty swell
Can't you tell?

Meg White
Such a pretty thing
I saw your face on the cover
Of a magazine

Someday
I'd like
To take a walk with you
maybe ride our bikes down by the seaside

Meg White
Saw you on the big screen
Old Jack was king
But you stole the scene

Meg White
Baby, you're the bomb
Old Jack is great
Don't get me wrong
but this is your song

Someday
I'd like
To take a walk with you
And talk about most anything
You'd like to talk about
And watch the sun going down
Going down

Playin' those drums is hard to do
It's true
Nobody plays them quite like you do

Meg White
You're alright
In fact I think you're pretty swell
Can't you tell?

Meg White
Such a pretty thing
Saw your face on the cover of a magazine

Someday
I'd like
To take a walk with you
Maybe ride our bikes down by the seaside
And watch the sun going down
going down

Hiding in shadows

Living in darkness
To hide our wrong

You and me at the
Dark end of the street
You and me

I know time is
Gonna take it's toll
We have to pat for
The love that we stole

It's a sin and
We know it's wrong
Oh, but our love
Keeps coming on strong

Steal away to the
Dark end of the street

They're gonna to find us
They're gonna to find us
They're gonna to find us
Lord, someday

You and me at the
Dark end of the street
You and me

And when the
Daylight hours roll round
And by chance
We're both downtown

If we should meet
Just walk on by
Oh, darling, please don't cry

Tonight, we'll meet at
The dark end of the street
