Mahalia Jackson - Amazing Grace/Joshua Fit The Battle Of Jericho/ How Great Thou Art/How I got over/His Eye Is On The Sparrow/You'll Never Walk Alone

Κλείνουν σήμερα 38 χρόνια από το θάνατο μιας από τις μεγαλύτερες τραγουδίστριες το 20ού αιώνα, της Βασίλισσας του Gospel, Mahalia Jackson στις 27 Φεβρουαρίου 1972.

Amazing Grace


Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come;
'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me.
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we've been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we've first begun.


Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

Joshua Fit The Battle Of Jericho


Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

Good morning sister Mary
Good morning brother John
Well I wanna stop and talk with you
Wanna tell you how I come along

I know you've heard about Joshua
He was the son of Nun
He never stopped his work until
Until the work was done

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

You may talk about your men of Gideon
You may brag about your men of Saul
There's none like good old Joshua
At the battle of Jericho

Up to the walls of Jericho
He marched with spear in hand
Go blow them ram horns, Joshua cried
'Cause the battle is in my hands

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

You may talk about your men of Gideon
You may brag about your king of Saul
There none like Joshua
At the battle of Jericho

They tell me, great God that Joshua’s spear
Was well nigh twelve feet long
And upon his hip was a double edged sword
And his mouth was a gospel horn

Yet bold and brave he stood
Salvation in his hand
Go blow them ram horns Joshua cried
'Cause the devil can't do you no harm

Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

Up to the walls of Jericho
He marched with spear in hand
Go blow them ram horns, Joshua cried
'Cause the battle is in my hands

Then the lamb ram sheep horns began to blow
The trumpets began to sound
Old Joshua shouted glory
And the walls came tumblin' down

God knows that
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Jericho Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls come tumbling down

Down, down, down, down, down
Tumblin' down
**************
How Great Thou Art



Oh, Lord, my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all, thy world thy hands have made
I see the stars and I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

Then sings my soul
My Savior God to thee
How great thou art
How great thou art
(rpt 2 times)
***************

How I got over



How I got over
How I got over
You know my soul looks back and wonder
How I got over
(rpt)

Soon as I can see Jesus
The man that died for me
Man that bled and suffered
Hung on Calvary
I'm gonna thank him
For how he brought me
I'm gonna thank God
For how he taught me
Yes, thank my God for how he kept me
I'm gonna thank him 'cause He never left me
I'm gonna thank God for ol' time religion
I'm gonna thank Him for giving me a vision
I'm gon' join the Heavenly choir
And I'm a-sing and never get tired
I'm gonna sing somewhere 'round God's alter
And I'm a-shout all my troubles over
Lord, we got to thank you
Thank you for being so good to me
(chorus)

I'm gon' wear a di-garment
In that New Jerusalem
I'm gonna walk the streets of gold
In that homeland of the soul
I'm gonna view the hosts in white
That been traveling day and night
Coming up from every nation
On their way to the great coronation
Coming from the north, south, east, and west
On their way to a land of rest
Lord, we gonna join the heavenly choir
We gon' sing and never get tired
Lord, we gon' sing somewhere 'round your alter
And we gonna shout all our troubles over
Lord, we gotta thank you
Thank you for being so good to me

Hmmm, I wanna thank you, this morning
I wanna thank you, Lord, this morning
You know all, all night long
You kept your angels watching over me
And you told your angels this morning
You told your angels, Lord, this morning
You said, "Touch her, in my name"
You said, "Touch her, in my name"
And I rose, I rose this morning
Lord, I rose, I rose this morning
With the blood, blood running warm
All in my veins, Oh Lord
Lord, I feel, I feel like running
Lord, I feel, I feel like running
Lord, you know I feel, feel like running
Lord, Lord, I feel, I feel like running
Lord, I wanna thank you
Thank you, thank you for being
So good to me
************
His Eye Is On The Sparrow



Why should I feel discouraged,
Why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely
And long for Heav'n and home,
When Jesus is my portion?
My constant Friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Refrain:
I sing because I'm happy,
I sing because I'm free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Verse 2:
"Let not your heart be troubled,"
His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth
But one step I may see:
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Whenever I am tempted,
Whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing,
When hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him,
From care He sets me free:
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He cares for me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He cares for me.
************
You'll Never Walk Alone



When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
For at the end of the storm
Is a golden ray
And the sweet silver song of a lark
Walk on through the storm
Walk on through the rain
Though your dream be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on with hope in your hope
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone

Peter Gabriel - Heroes



Στο νέο του άλμπουμ Scratch My Back που πρόκειται να κυκλοφορήσει στις 15 Φεβρουαρίου ο Peter Gabriel και αποτελείται από διασκευές συμπεριλαμβάνει και το Heroes του David Bowie.
Το τραγούδι πρόσφερε στην οργάνωση Music for Relief ώστε να συγκεντρωθούν χρήματα για τα θύματα του σεισμού στην Αϊτή.

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be Heroes, just for one day

And you, you can be mean
And I, I'll drink all the time
'Cause we're lovers, and that is a fact
Yes we're lovers, and that is that

Though nothing, will keep us together
We could steal time,
just for one day
We can be Heroes, for ever and ever
What d'you say?

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing,
nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever
Oh we can be Heroes,
just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be Heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

I, I can remember (I remember)
Standing, by the wall (by the wall)
And the guns shot above our heads
(over our heads)
And we kissed,
as though nothing could fall
(nothing could fall)
And the shame was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever
Then we could be Heroes,
just for one day

We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
Just for one day
We can be Heroes

We're nothing, and nothing will help us
Maybe we're lying,
then you better not stay
But we could be safer,
just for one day

Oh-oh-oh-ohh, oh-oh-oh-ohh,
just for one day

Spoon - Written in Reverse





Στις 18 Ιανουαρίου αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει το νέο άλμπουμ των Spoon, Transference.
Το Written in Reverse είναι το πρώτο σινγκλ ενώ για το Got Nuffin που υπάρχει στο άλμπουμ και πρωτοεμφανίστηκε στο ομώνυμο EP (κυκλοφορεί από τις 30 Ιουνίου) είχαμε αναφερθεί εδώ.

I'm writing this to you in reverse
Someone better call a hearse
I can see it all from here
From just a few glimpses
Now that lightbulb's gone off
And it's pulling my wince
And now the lightbulb's gone off
I've seen it in your eyes
I've seen you blankly stare
And I wanna show you how I love you
But there's nothing there

I'm not standin' here!
Oh I'm not standin' here!
And I'm writing in reverse
I know it could be worse
I'm not standing here, I'm not standing here
(I'm not standing here, I'm not standing here)
(and I'm writing in reverse, I know it could be worse)
And I hear that famous song
And I hear that can't be wrong

No nothin' was planned
You just can't help yourself
Some people are so easily shuffled and dealt
If there's only one of us you truly felt
We're gettin' you raw
And it feels real good
Although only briefly
Like high school poppers would
Will you lose a bit of yourself?
Will you lose a bit of yourself?

I'm not standin' here!
Oh I'm not standin' here!
And I'm writing in reverse
I know it could be worse
I hear that famous song
And I hear that can't be wrong


All I know, is all I know,
Yes, all I know, is all I know
Is all I know...

I'm writing this to you in reverse
Someone better call a hearse (woo!)
I can see it all from here
From just a few glimpses
Now that lightbulb's gone off
And it's pulling my wince
And now the lightbulb's gone off
I've seen it in your eyes
And there's nothing there
There's nothing there
I wanna show you how I love you
I can see you blankly stare

Placebo - Special K / The Bitter End

Πριν λίγες μέρες (Δεκέμβριος 2009) κυκλοφόρησε το άλμπουμ των Placebo iTunes Live: London Festival '09 που περιέχει την ηχογράφηση της συναυλίας τους στα πλαίσια του iTunes Festival στις 14 Ιουλίου 2009. Το άλμπουμ είναι διαθέσιμο μόνο μέσω iTunes.


Special Κ



Coming up beyond belief
On this coronary thief

More than just a leitmotif
More chaotic, no relief

I'll describe the way I feel
Weeping wounds that never heal

Can the savior be for real
Or are you just my seventh seal?

No hesitation, no delay
You come on just like special K
Just like I swallowed half my stash
I never ever want to crash

No hesitation, no delay
You come on just like special K
Now you're back with dope demand
I'm on sinking sand

Gravity
No escaping gravity
Gravity
No escaping... not for free
I fall down... hit the ground
Make a heavy sound
Every time you seem to come around

I'll describe the way I feel
You're my new Achilles heel

Can this savior be for real
Or are you just my seventh seal?

No hesitation, no delay
You come on just like special K
Just like I swallowed half my stash
I never ever want to crash

No hesitation, no delay
You come on just like special K
Now you're back with dope demand
I'm on sinking sand

Gravity
No escaping gravity
Gravity
No escaping... not for free
I fall down... hit the ground
Make a heavy sound
Every time you seem to come around

No escaping gravity
No escaping gravity
No escaping gravity
No escaping gravity
Gravity
Gravity
Gravity
Gravity

The Bitter End


Since we’re feeling so anesthetised
In our comfort zone
Reminds me of the second time
That I followed you home

We’re running out of alibis
On the second of May
Reminds me of the summertime
On this winter's day

See you at the bitter end (x2)

Every step we take that’s synchronised
Every broken bone
Reminds me of the second time
That I followed you home

You shower me with lullabies
As you’re walking away
Reminds me that it’s killing time
On this fateful day

See you at the bitter end (x4)

From the time we intercepted
Feels a lot like suicide
Slow and sad, grown inside us
Arouse and see you're mine (see you at the bitter end)

Love has seen your run-around
Who wanna seek you now?
I want a peace
I'd whine out (see you at the bitter end)

Love's reached his side
Grab this gentleness inside
Heard a cry
Six feet down
In six weeks' time
The mess you left
Will end (see you at the bitter end)

Eels - In My Younger Days

File:Eels - End Times.jpg

Στις 19 Ιανουαρίου κυκλοφορεί το νέο άλμπουμ των Eels, End Times για το οποίο ήδη έχουν ετοιμάσει δύο βίντεο:

In My Younger Days



In my younger days
This wouldn't have been so hard
I would have just shrugged it off
But now it's tough
I'm not so rough
And I've got a little ways to go
It's not over yet I know
But it feels not so far away

In my younger days
This still would've knocked me down
But I would've just bounced right back you know
Now I'm a statistic
But I'm not fatalistic
I'm not yet resigned to fate
And I'm not gonna be ruled by hate
But it's strong, and it's filling up my days

In my younger days
I would've just chocked it up
As part of my ongoing education
But I've had enough
Been through some stuff
And I don't need any more misery
To teach me what I should be
I just need you back


και

Little Bird



Crazy guy with a matted beard
Standing on the corner
Shouting out "end times are near"
And nobody noticing

But I can hear him loud and clear
She is gone now, and nowhere near
Seems like end times are here

I walk around a puddle in the street
And head on home
Outside my window there's a cat in heat
Shut up cat and leave me alone

There ain't no heat on round here
I don't feel nothing now, not even fear
Now that end times are here

Now everyone's crazy and lost their minds
Just look at the world
Could all be over at any old time

And I can hear it loud and clear
The world is ending, and what do I care
She's gone, end times are here
