Upcoming repertoire. :)

 

I am you are me. That’s what I said.
I am you are me. Don’t you see?
It’s seems like I’m over here and you’re over there.
But there is somethin’ between us that’s greater than air.
See thru the confusion; it’s not hard to do,
It’s just an illusion; it’s me and you.
I am a part of you, you are a part of me
And so together we are one body.
I am inside your head, you are inside my heart.
We fit together perfect from the start

This is was the closing piece to our Joyful Noise christmas concert.  Fun to learn, challenging to sing.  All good.  :)

 

Without doubt, Monteverdi was the greatest of the early baroque composers. He revolutionized the music of the theatre and the church with his dramatic and imaginative use of voices and instruments and with his daring harmonies and rhythms. Next to his Vespers of 1610, the Selva morale e spirituale of 1641 is his most significant and virtuosic collection of sacred music.

Well, another week of firsts folks. My first foray into Karaoke was with Paul Simon and late in the evening. Funny how the difficulty goes up when you happen to be responsible for the rhythmical and lyrical production. A few stumbles, but I managed to stay in time and in tune. ;)

I was lying In my bed I couldn’t of been no more Than one or two

I remember there’s a radio Comin’ from the room next door And my mother laughed The way some ladies do

When it’s late in the evening And the music s seeping through

The next thing I remember I am walking down the street I’m feeling all right I’m with my boys I’m with my troops, yeah

And down along the avenue Some guys were shootin pool And I heard the sound Of a cappella groups, yeah

Singing late in the evening And all the girls out on the stoops, yeah

Then I learned to play some lead guitar I was underage In this funky bar And I stepped outside to smoke myself a “J”

And when I came back to the room Everybody just seemed to move And I turned my amp up loud and I began to play

And it was late in the evening And I blew that room away

The first thing I remember When you came into my life I said I’m gonna get that girl No matter what I do

Well I guess I’d been in love before And once or twice I been on the floor

But I never loved no one The way that I loved you

And it was late in the evening And all the music seeping through

It’s a rough road sometimes folks.  Celebrate the good times, accept the bad times the best you can.  Move forward, if you can.

 

 

“And still I dream he’ll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather”

 

There was a time when men were kind
When their voices were soft
And their words inviting
There was a time when love was blind
And the world was a song
And the song was exciting
There was a time
Then it all went wrong
I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted
But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame
He slept a summer by my side
He filled my days with endless wonder
He took my childhood in his stride
But he was gone when autumn came
And still I dream he’ll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather
I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I’m living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.
