Dear Friends !

What do you think about English Oldies (songs)? Me, I mostly used to hear an English Oldies of 60's, 70's and 80's. My favorite century singers are Bob Marley (Buffalo Soldier fame), Del Shanon (Little Town Flirt fame), Ben E. King (Stand By Me fame), Billy Ocean (Emotions in Motion fame), Christie (Iron Horse fame), Jerry Lee Lewis (Good Golly Miss Molly fame), Jimmy Dean (Big Bad John fame), Ronnie Carroll (Roses are Red fame) and Groups like.....Carpenters, Beatles, The Shirelles, Glitter Band, The Fortunes, The Archies, The Equals, The Chiffons, etc.....!

Guys, did you know about these Singers and Bands (Groups)? There are many heart touching songs sung by these Singers and Groups. If you are interested to listening oldies then try to collect them and hear.

Here, I am going to post a famous song which was sung by Beatles and I sure, you all know this song...maybe hai !

Hey Jude, don't make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

Hey Jude, don't be afraid.
You were made to go out and get her.
The minute you let her under your skin,
Then you begin to make it better.

And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain,
Don't carry the world upon your shoulders.
For well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder.

Hey Jude, don't let me down.
You have found her, now go and get her.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.

So let it out and let it in, hey Jude, begin,
You're waiting for someone to perform with.
And don't you know that it's just you, hey Jude, you'll do,
The movement you need is on your shoulder.

Hey Jude, don't make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her under your skin,
Then you'll begin to make it
Better better better better better better, oh.

Da da da da da da, da da da, hey Jude...

For me Evergreen English song is "More than I can say"


MORE THAN I CAN SAY
Leo Sayer

Bob Marley (Buffalo Soldier fame)


Bob Marley is my favorate singer. I love very much the song, Buffalo Soldier In The Heart Of America and I think, Bob Marley was the first singer who introduced Reggae music in this world. If I am not wrong, he was the Reggae King.

I too love to hear oldies. Mostly, I like to hear BRYAN ADAMS.

Here is one song by BRYAN ADAMS. Song is, Everything I Do, I Do It For You

Look into my eyes - you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart - search your soul
And when you find me there you'll search no more
Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for
You know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

Look into my heart - you will find
There's nothin' there to hide
Take me as I am - take my life
I would give it all I would sacrifice
Don't tell me it's not worth fightin' for
I can't help it there's nothin' I want more
You know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

There's no love - like your love
And no other - could give more love
There's nowhere - unless you're there
All the time - all the way

Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
I can't help it there's nothin' I want more
I would fight for you - I'd lie for you
Walk the wire for you - You I'd die for you

You know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

My favourite one.....Oh Carol by Neil Sedaka.

Oh Carol, I am but a fool.
Darling, I love you,
Tho' you treat me cruel.
You hurt me and you made me cry.
But if you leave me.
I will surely die.
Darling, there will never be
another.
'Cause I love you so.
Don't ever leave me,
say you'll never go.
I will always want you for my
sweetheart.
No matter what you do.
Oh! carol,
I'm so in love with you.
Music .Hu.................
Darling, there will never be
another.
'Cause I love you so.
Don't ever leave me,
say you'll never go.
I will always want you for my
sweetheart.
No matter what you do.
Oh! carol,
I'm so in love with you.

and....one more....My best of the BEST... American Pie by Don Mc Lean.

A long long time ago
I can still remember how that music used to make me
smile
And I knew if I had my chance
that I could make those people dance
and maybe they'd be happy for a while
But February made me shiver with every paper I'd
daliver
Bad news on the doorstap
I couldn't take one more step
I can't remember if I cried when I read about his
widowed bride
Something touched me deep inside the day the music
died.

**

So bye bye Miss American pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
Them good ole boys were drinkin' whisky ane rye
singin' this'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die

Did you write the book of love and
do you have faith in God above?
If the Bible tells you so
Now do you believe in rook and roll
can Music save your mortal soul and
can you teach me how to dance real slow?
Well I know that you're in love with him
cause I saw you dancin' in the gym
You both kicked off your shose
Man, I dig those rhythm and bluses
I was a lonely teenage broncin's buck
with a pink carnation and a pickup truck
But I knew I was out of luck the day the music died.
I started singing bye bye
**Repeat

Now for ten years we've been on our own
and moss grows fat on a rollin's stone
But that's not how it used to be
When the Jester sang for the king and Queen in a coat
He Borrowned from James Dean and a voice that came
from you and me
Oh, and while the king was looking down the Jester
stole his thorny crown
The courtroom was adjourned, no verdict was returned
And while Lennin read a book on Marx
the coart took practice in the park and we SONG
dirties in the dark
the day the music died. We were singin's bye bye **
(Repeat)

Helter-skelter in the summer sweiter
the birds flew off with a fall-out shelter
Eight miles high and fallin's fast, it landed foul on
the gress
the players tried for a forware pass,
with the Jester on the sidelines in a coat
Now the half-time air was sweet paerfume
While the sergeants played a marching tune
We all got up to dance but we never got the chance
Cause the players tried to take the field,
the marching band refused to yield
Do you recall what was revealed the day the music died
We started singin's bye bye

**Repeat

In there we were all in one place,
A generation lost in space with no time left to start
again
So come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack sat on a candlestick cause fire is the devils
only friend
(Oh) as I watched him on the stage,
my hands were clenched in festive rage
No angel born in heaven could break that stan's spell
And as the flames climbed high into the night
the sacrificial rite I saw satan
Laughing with delight the day the music died.
He was singin's bye bye

**Repeat

I met girl who sang the blues and I asked her for
some happy news
but the just smiled and turned away I went down to
the sacred store
where I heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn't play
The lovers cried and the posts dreamed
(But) Not a word was spoken, the church bells all
were broken
And he three man I admire most the Father,
Son an the holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died.
And they were singin' bye bye

** Repeat

I too crazy for oldies. Ok, here is one old English song from my side.

Dark Moor

Song's name is: Somewhere In Dreams

Through the old valley of golden trees
In the land of elves
A young boy hated the line that destiny
Wrote out on his race
He sighed for the fire
He sighed for the wind
And the rain on the face
Far away from kingdom lit by the blaze
Lost in a strange place

Somewhere in dreams there is a way
Vast towers and gardens
Somewhere in dreams there is a bay
Full of fantasy

Dragons in my dreams
Look for the glory
In the time΄s stream
I just can flee
Dragons in my dreams
Tell us the story
Where the sunset beams
I will be free

And he woke one morning in elves΄ land
His heart was in chains
And the king of the elves couldn΄t understand
Believed him insane
But every night his soul wished to race
Through the seven seas
Watching the stars in the deep space
Out of his agony

In the white land of dreams there is a way
High mountain and forests
Words on the wind that sweetly say
Full of fantasy

Dragons in my dreams
Look for the glory
In the time΄s stream
I just can flee
Dragons in my dreams
Tell us the story
Where the sunset beams
I will be free
regards,

Deepa S P Pal

Dada,

I too very big fan of Bob Marley. The song 'Buffalo Soldier' is ever great hit song which targets the realstick, no doubt.

But I like Bob Marley's this song: SO MUCH TROUBLE IN THE WORLD

So much trouble in the world
So much trouble in the world

Bless my eyes this morning
Jah sun is on the rise once again
The way earthly things are going
Anything can happen

You see men sailing on their ego trips
Blast off on their spaceship
Million miles from reality
No care for you, no care for me

So much trouble in the world now
So much trouble in the world now
All you got to do is give a little
Give a little, give a little
one more time ye-a-h! ye-a-h!

So you think you have found the solution
But it's just another illusion
So before you check out your tide
Don't leave another cornerstone
Standing there behind
We've got to face the day
Ooh we come what we may
We the street people talking
We the people struggling

Now they are sitting on a time bomb
Now I know the time has come
What goes on up is coming on down
Goes around and comes around

So much trouble in the world
So much trouble in the world
So much trouble in the world
There is so much trouble
There is so much trouble
There is so much trouble
There is so much trouble in the world
There is so much trouble in the world.


The better you know someone, the less there is to stay. Or maybe, there's less that need to be said.

How abt this 1 sir biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif


Fade To Black
Life it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters no one else
I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free
Things are not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can't be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel
Emptiness is filing me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now He's gone

No one but me can save myself, but it to late
Now I can't think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death Greets me warm, now I will just say good-bye
