It gets better on #SongLyricSunday

Hello out there, music lovers. How are you doing today? I am tired my dear readers. On Monday I had my third round of chemotherapy and the first week afterwards is always a bit of a struggle. Not too much but enough for me to take a break from blogging.

But guess what? WordPress is great and let’s us schedule posts and so I did 🙂

What’s up at Song Lyric Sunday today?

Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday challenged us to find a song for the topic “Best/Better/Good/Great”. And today I bring you to Marocco/ Essaouira at the Hotel Les Terrasses D’Essaouira where Andalucious played at the Essaouira Atlantic Andalusia Festival. I have discovered Andalucious via my virtual travels on “Come Away With Me” and I just love their music.

Andalucious are a Jewish ensemble that tries to bring back music that used to be performed by the Jewish community in North Africa. This music has mainly Marroccan and Algerian roots.

At the Essaouira Atlantic Andalusia Festival they recorded a song that encourages Jewish and Muslim people to see their similarities and not their reasons for war. I think that is a very good topic! This is what it says on YouTube about he following video:

The Universe connected us as we were looking for artists and they were looking for someone who can record them due their visit in Morocco to play concerts at the 15th Festival des Andalousies Atlantiques d’Essaouira 🙂 The setup was tight as we had only 40 min. for mic setup, soundcheck, put the cameras and record – what you have here is the first take and it was magic. We love to say thank you for this great experience and wish you all the best !!! The lyrics are wonderful !!! Each one is different but we are all equal and should spend our time to live in peace together 🙂 The Track was Recorded, Mixed and Mastered by Adrian “Ady” Parzentny from Hit The Road Music Studio : A mobile record studio, traveling and recording artists all around the world !

Another reason why I chose this song is obvious. For the Muslim community Alah is great!

Please allow your listening habits be challenged with this long music piece. It’s a wonderful jam of brilliant musicians. Please feel free to follow the link underneath to it’s YouTube location and put on the subtitles for a translation of the lyrics. Thanks very much!

Some Heat on #SongLyricSunday

Hello out there, music lovers. How are you doing today? I hope you have a beautiful Sunday that is not too hot nor too cold. I am sending you good vibes and your favourite hot or cold beverage just because… ;-).

What’s up at Song Lyric Sunday today?

Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday challenges us to find a song for the topic “Cool/Freeze/Heat/Melt”. I had to think a little bit about this one. As you know, I am exploring music from all over the world since December 2019. If you follow any of my social media, you have come across the singer I am introducing you to today already.

Her name is Wiyaala. She was born in the North West of Ghana and has created and outstanding musical career in a extremely conservative country.

How did I come across Wiyaala?

At the beginning of 2020 one video showed up all the time when I was signing into YouTube. It was Wiyaala’s interpretation of Osibia’s “Woyaya/We are going”. At first, I did not take any notice. But I liked the confident look of the girl on the video, and I have a thing for blue, skies and mountains 🙂 .

So in the end, I had a look. And I was hooked.

Who is Wiyaala?

Wiyaala was born in Funsi, a little conservative place in the North West of Ghana. Ghana is one of the West African countries around the Gulf of Guinea. She was lucky because her musical mother refused her daughters to be married young. She also refused to adhere to the tradition of FGM, which enabled Wiyaala to become an entertainer. You can find out more about her here on her homepage.

I am following her both on Instagram and Twitter. It shows a lot what sort of person Wiyaala is. On Twitter, she tries to answer many tweets. She thanked me on one of my first shares of her music. On Instagram, she gives a lot of insight into the life of a Ghanian village. She also shares a lot about her life. For example, she shared several videos on her lock-down experience.

Wiyaala is also an influencer for UNICEFGhana to fight for the abolition of FGM, early child marriage and the rights of children.

She was “discovered” by the BBC in 2014 and has travelled all over the world since. From what I gather from her tweets, she is seen rather critical in her own country for the connection to Europe.

You might have come across her music if you watched the Commonwealth Games in Australia in 2018 or are a customer of Western Union.

And what is hot about Wiyaala?

I have seen a couple of Wiyaala video’s which are rather saucy. She does try to fight the image of the meek woman who can’t create her own destiny and I think that is why she creates these empowered but often also critical videos.

The video I chose for today is called “Village Sex” and is Wiyaala’s take on a traditional wedding song from her village. Originally this song was meant as a warning to young men to have sex before their marriage. Wiyaala’s take seems to be more humorous. But please make up your own mind.

Oh, one thing more: Wiyaala sings many of her songs in her native Sisaala tongue. I have added a couple of links to articles that explain what the song is about. Unfortunately, I could not find any lyrics to it. Am cheating a little here I admit 🙂

“Maria” on #SongLyricSunday

Hello out there in this vast blogosphere. How are you doing today? I hope you have a beautiful Sunday despite everything. And if not that there are those who hug you and support you. I am sending you good vibes all the same!

It’s been a while since I took part in Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday but today’s topic “Maria” captured my imagination. Surely I could find a song that has a “Maria” in it?

I directly remembered Santana’s “Maria, Maria”, “Maria” in “West Side Story” and, of course, the unforgettable “Maria” in “The Sound of Music”. And who thought how many versions of “Ave Maria” are out there? Even Beyonce did one.

But if you have visited my blog on regular basis since December 2019 then you know I am on a mission to challenge your and my listening habits. I am exploring music from countries like Estonia or Ghana and gosh have I discovered some gems.

I wouldn’t call today’s choice a gem. The lyrics seem slightly sexist to me which made me hesitate to use this one. However, I could not find any other song about “Maria” from the more exotic places on this planet with enough information about the musicians. Or I really disliked the song. So, I stuck with this one because it’s a good dance song and I love music in Spanish and French. This one has both and yes, you get a translation after the video.

So come away with me to Colombia, a country that is only known to me via drug gang-related news from tv or Gabriel Garcia Marques’s books. Today’s musicians are GIMS & Maluma. Gandhi Bilel Djuna is known by his stage name Maitre Gims. He is a well-known Rapper from France but was born in Congo. His father and brothers are musicians too. He has worked with Sting, Sia, Little Wayne, and others.

Juan Luis Londoño Arias is professionally known as Maluma. He was born in Medellin and discovered music at a young age. He seems to be a regular in the Billboard Hot Latin Songs and has worked with Shakira and Madonna. In 2019 they recorded “Hola Seniorita (Hello Miss)” and filmed the video in Riad, Marrakesh and at the Bassin de la Menara in Marocco.

But enough information. Enjoy the music:

Hello young Lady

Lyrics by LyricsTranslate (link at the end).

[chrous : Maluma & Gims] It is said that her name is María, María, María Who would have thought that day I fell in love?

She, hello young lady, tell me if you think we have said everything. I can’t dance and tonight I’ll keep a low profile.

She’s a pretty lady through and through But what I like the most is when she speaks French. Dance, dance hottie Dance, dance hottie 

[verse 1 : Maluma] From L.A to France, baby, what elegance! Channel, Dior perfume, baby what a fragance! You’re hot, delicious, you look scrumptious

I just want be inside if you’re emotional You send me an emoji, those ones that are like the devil Why don’t you talk face to face? baby, speak to me straight In this tale, I don’t want to be the villain Don’t send hints, let’s go straight to the point 

[Pre-chorus: Maluma] Tell me if you and I are going to a far-away place Follow that movement To-to-to-to-ton-ton To-to-to-to-ton-ton 

[Chorus : Maluma & Gims] It is said that her name is María, María, María Who would have thought that day I fell in love?

She, hello young lady, tell me if you think we have said everything. I can’t dance and tonight I’ll keep a low profile.

She’s a pretty lady through and through But what I like the most is when she speaks French. Dance, dance hottie Dance, dance hottie 

[verse 2 : Gims] Tell me what you want, tell me what you’re expecting from me I saw you appear and disappear like a ninja You’ve heard things about me, you’re careful around. I already know it.

I hold you, you escape from me, stealthy like a cat Good luck to the one who marries you I’ll be happy to call you María

Under the Santa Monica’s sunshine or Santa María, ah Tell me what you want, tell me what you’re waiting from me I saw you appear and disappear like a ninja

You’ve heard things about me, you doubt about me, I already know it. I hold you, you escape from me, stealthy like a cat Always on the search, on the search of some money

It’s not easy to love with a heart pierced with bars I’ve lost a lot of blood, It’s about time make myself a tourniquet Just right after we make peace, in this language, I love you 

[Chorus : Maluma & Gims] It is said that her name is María, María, María Who would have thought that day I fell in love? She, hello young lady, tell me if you think we have said everything.

I can’t dance and tonight I’ll keep a low profile. She’s a pretty lady through and through But what I like the most is when she speaks French. 

Dance, dance hottie Dance, dance hottie (Prrrrrrr! I love you!, J’t’aime!, Te amo!)

It is said that her name is María, María, María (To all my rivals)

Who would have thought that day I fell in love (hottie!) Maluma, Baby!

Blast from the Past: Song Lyric Sunday ~ Hozier

March 2020

This post was first posted in March 2016

March 2016

While doing “Love Is In Da Blog” I suggested to take part in Helen’s Song Lyric Sunday. And wow have we done. I have been introduced to a few wonderful songs, and I decided this is a good blog event to keep doing.

Last year a young Irish singer/songwriter caught my ear with his “Take me to Church”. His name is Hozier and even though I didn’t really listen to the lyrics, at first, his voice and his way of making music fascinated me. It’s not mainstream. It’s different, and it’s unique. There was only one line that stuck out to me: “I’ll tell you my sins, and you can sharpen your knife…”

I do not know what it was that spoke to me about that line. Maybe it is my discomfort with conservative Christians who know exactly what is right and what is wrong, and they never fail to tell you about it. And they never fail to judge you and your behaviour on that scale and “sharpen their knives” so to speak. They also never fail to hide their own sins.

Life for me isn’t black or white. There is an awful lot of grey and we do not know what makes a person act in a certain way. Usually, there is a reason for it. People are not just sinners. They experience hardship, unfairness and trauma and they have to deal with it with what they have available.

It puzzles me that some Christians act in that way because the person whom they supposedly follow never saw life in black or white. He was a very understanding person and seemed to know about trauma, hardship and unfairness and what it does to people. He accepted the prostitutes blessing and ate at the taxman’s table. He just broke rules given to the people of his time because he saw the person and his or her pain and not what society forced people to see.

The song “Take me to Church” also is about today’s taboo’s and even if the video does not exactly have anything to do the lyrics, in my opinion, it speaks of the still established taboo of gay love and those who feel they have to fight it and harm or kill gay people. And so often they are conservative Christians who plainly forget that Jesus asked them to love their neighbour as themselves. No matter if he or she is gay, black, HIV-positive (I admit that wasn’t possible in Jesus’s time) an immigrant or not. Unfortunately, I can’t insert that video here in the post.

But again I do not know why these Christians act in that way. It might be their way of dealing with their own hardships, traumas and unfairnesses. Who knows? I won’t be the first to throw the stone because I do not know why they act in that way. I just express my discomfort with that sort of behaviour.

But enough said. Here is the song and the Lyrics: “Take me to Church” by Hozier and Lyrics taken from A-Z Lyrics

“Take Me To Church”

My lover’s got humour
She’s the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody’s disapproval
I should’ve worshipped her sooner

If the heavens ever did speak
She’s the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak
A fresh poison each week

“We were born sick,” you heard them say it

My church offers no absolutes
She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom.”
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you

I was born sick
But I love it
Command me to be well
Aaay. Amen. Amen. Amen.

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

If I’m a pagan of the good times
My lover’s the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice

Drain the whole sea
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That’s a fine-looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We’ve a lot of starving faithful

That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

No Masters or Kings
When the Ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin

In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am human
Only then I am clean
Ooh oh. Amen. Amen. Amen.

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

#SongLyricSunday: Crazy

Hello dear music lovers. How are you doing? I hope you are well and that there is always a tune in your ear that helps you along.

I love today’s prompt from Jim over at a “Unique Title for Me” who is now hosting Song Lyric Sunday. It is “crazy” and I am sure there will be great Songs on offer by all the participants.

Today we go German my dear readers. I love to introduce you to musicians which are not so mainstream or simply not so well known. That is certainly true for “Eisbrecher” a German “Neue Deutsche Haerte” (New German Hardness) band. “Neue Deutsche Haerte” is a genre that developed in the middle of the 1990’s as an answer to “Neue Deutsche Welle”. Wikipedia explains: ” Neue Deutsche Härte describes a crossover style that is influenced by Neue Deutsche Welle, alternative metal and groove metal combining it with elements from electro-industrial and techno.[2] The lyrics are generally in German. NDH uses the basic setup of instruments for metal: electric guitar, bass guitar, drums and vocals, along with keyboard, synthesizers, samples and sometimes additional percussion. Emphasis is on a demonstration of predominance, by over-pronouncing certain syllables and letters (such as the uvular or alveolar trill). The vocals are thus dominantly presenting in deep, male, and clean voice.[2] Some bands use screaming and death growls, which is also common, being heard in certain songs by Oomph!, Rammstein, Joachim Witt, Megaherz and Eisbrecher. NDH imagery is often strongly masculine and militaristic. Guitars are tuned low, usually to drop D or C, and are generally heavily distorted.

I am always interested in cross over genres and sometimes love a little bit of metal. So Eisbrecher’s song “Verrueckt” crazy fits perfectly. I hope you enjoy.

Crazy

Versions: #1#2

You say I’m different,

I say you are right.

You say you’re in good mood

which means you’re sad

I’m instatiable, I get never enough.

grab into your wounds,

and stir up the blaze. 

Dinner is served,

it’s a pleasure to me.

I’m licking your lips,

because I like your taste.

Oh am I embarassing you,

are you afraid of me?

Who is normal here and who is insane? 

[Chorus] The decision has been made,

the charge inside me is ticking (ticking, ticking, ticking)

Nothing will be like before,

fortunately I’m crazy 

I’m on probation, okay I am not.

Your ugly brother, a hit in the face.

You say I’m menacing you,

I’m off the lane.

You think I understand you?

I’m tantalizing you! 

I’m totally clueless,

I don’t remember anything,

I plead on acquittal,

I’m not all here.

You say I’m embarassing you,

say, are you afraid of me?

What is normal here, and who is…

and who is insane? 

Chrous 2x Fortunately I’m crazy,

fortunately I’m crazy,

the charge inside me is ticking,

fortunately I’m crazy!

Crazy! Chorus Fortunately

I’m crazy (4x)

#SongLyricSunday ~ Snowman

Hello dear music lovers, how are you doing? I hope life is treating you well and that you always have the right tune at hand 😉 .

Yes, it’s that time of the year and I am only mentioning the obvious once 🙂 but I can’t avoid it fully because Jim’s prompt for today’s #SongLyricSunday is

Christmas/Holiday/Snowman

While the climate crisis means that we either can’t get any snow or much too much I still love snowmen. No matter how old I get I would always go and built one. And no, I haven’t seen any of the Frozen films yet … sorry 😉

So, what is my chosen tune you ask????? Snowman by Sia a rather haunting love song. I love her voice and the way she puts her words into her songs. You will see what I mean later in this post.

Well, let’s not get bogged down by words and information (if you want to know about Sia please have a look here and here) and just enjoy an interesting song 🙂

Snowman by Sia

Don’t cry, snowman, not in front of me
Who’ll catch your tears if you can’t catch me, darling
If you can’t catch me, darling
Don’t cry, snowman, don’t leave me this way
A puddle of water can’t hold me close, baby
Can’t hold me close, baby

I want you to know that I’m never leaving
Cause I’m Mrs. Snow, ’till death will be freezing
Yeah, you are my home, my home for all seasons
So come on let’s go

Let’s go below zero
And hide from the sun
I love you forever
And we’ll have some fun
Yes let’s hit the north pole
And live happily
Please don’t cry no tears now
It’s Christmas baby

My snowman and me, yea
My snowman and me
Baby

Don’t cry, snowman, don’t you fear the sun
Who’ll carry me without legs to run, honey
Without legs to run, honey
Don’t cry, snowman, don’t you shed a tear
Who’ll hear my secrets if you don’t have ears, baby
If you don’t have ears, baby

I want you to know that I’m never leaving
Cause I’m Mrs. Snow, ’till death will be freezing
Yeah, you are my home, my home for all seasons
So come on let’s go

Let’s go below zero
And hide from the sun
I love you forever
And we’ll have some fun
Yes let’s hit the north pole
And live happily
Please don’t cry no tears now
It’s Christmas baby

My snowman and me, yea
My snowman and me
Baby

#SongLyricSunday ~ Caught Out In The Rain

Hello out there, how is life treating you? Hopefully well and if not feel some healing energy coming your way and a song or two 😉 .

This week’s prompt for #SongLyricSunday is “Baby” and while you can choose from a plathora of songs that call for their baby’s I chose a singer I recently discovered. Her name is Beth Hart grammy nominated singer from the US who was ” dubbed “extraordinary” by The Times and “daring, brooding and angry” by The Guardian ” (https://www.bethhart.com/biography/)

I don’t know much about her but the way she sings and uses her extraordinary voice translates to me a lifetime of challenging experiences and a determination to get through it. Please listen to “Caught out in the Rain” and find the lyrics underneath the video. If it doesn’t play here on the blog, follow the link under the video which leads you to it’s YouTube location.

“Caught out in the rain” by Beth Hart

Lyric via Genius.com

I’m under your spell
Ain’t nobody’s business
I’m already there
It ain’t nobody’s business

Baby.. say..

Every time he walks out the door
I wonder if he’s ever coming back
I can’t help but love the taste of danger baby
And the how and the when and the roughness baby

I got caught out in the rain
If I die I don’t care, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love with this man
I got caught out, caught out
Caught out in the rain

I heard him crying in his sleep last night
No man wants to be told he been crying
When he wakes up I tell him it’s gonna be alright
But I know that he knows that I’m just relyin
I heard he shot a man down in the street
And it torn his soul apart
Last night when he was making love to me
There was a, another woman in his house

I got caught out in the rain
If I die I don’t care, I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love with this man
I got caught out, caught out
Caught out in the rain
In the rain..

I got caught out in the rain
If I die I don’t care, I don’t care
I’m in love, I’m in love
I got caught out, caught out
Caught out in the rain
In the rain..

His name
His pain

Ain’t nobody’s business
Ain’t nobody nobody nobody business

I won’t kiss and tell
I got a spell

Happy Sunday to you all. Please hop over to Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday and find more songs about “Baby”

#SongLyricSunday: Barefoot at the Piano

Hello out there, how are you? I hope you are well and that life is treating you to some wonderful melodies. And if not feel healing energy coming your way and listen to some great songs via Song Lyric Sunday!!!! 🙂

Jim’s prompt ” Arms/Elbows/Knees/Legs ” challenged me a lot because the only song that came to mind was a children’s song so I had to dig quite deep.

In the end, I decided to introduce you to a German band I have recently discovered. They are called AnnenMayKantereit which is the musicians last names put together. I love their rather ragged and mixed sound and most of all the singers voice.

I am not sure how famous they are in Germany but you can find out more about them here.

The song I have chosen is “Barfuss am Klavier” which means “Barefoot at the piano” and is a rather sad love song. The song is in German but the lyrics underneath are in English. Please enjoy and if the video doesn’t play here follow the link underneath which leads you to it’s YouTube location.

Barefoot at the piano

And I’m sitting again barefoot at the piano

I dream of love songs in which I sing of you

And you and me we were weird, not for me,

for the ones who were disrupted because someone heard us during the nights 

I sat around with you, lonely and quiet

I remember it best as laying lonely together every morning

and after that at yours you naked in bed,

and me barefoot at the piano 

And I’m sitting again barefoot at the piano

I dream of love songs in which I sing of you

And you and me it didn’t work out that way 

You wanted to know everything

and that drove me away

actually you, you didn’t stay longer with me

and so I’m rather sitting to feel alive,

barefoot at the piano 

And I’m sitting again barefoot at the piano

I dream of love songs in which I sing of you

 and you and me it wasn’t enough 

And I’m sitting again barefoot at the piano

I dream of love songs in which I sing of you and

I’m dreaming of you and

I’m dreaming of you and

I’m dreaming of you 

barefoot at the pian

the driving force that holds our lives together
without rythm your heart wouldn’t be
without direction
without moves
without shakes


and so tonught we say hip hip chin chin the rythm’s action

the beat

and so tonight we say
hip hip chin chin

the beat

The subject for tonight’s lecture is rythm (the beat)
the driving force that holds our lives together…
and so tonight we say hip hip chin chin

#SongLyricSunday – Food and Candy?

Hello out there, what’s occurring???? I hope only good things. One good thing on Sunday’s is Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday which went all foody today:

“Bounty/Desert/Eat/Feast/Food/Hungry/Turkey “

At first, I thought about “Food glorious Food” or Weird Al Yankowitze’s “Eat it” which made me laugh out loud way back when. But then I stumbled over Christian Aguillera’s version of “Candyman” (No not “The Candy Man” 🙂 ) which has a wonderful 40s ambiance. Please enjoy:

“Candyman”

Tarzan and Jane were swingin’ on a vine
Candyman, Candyman
Sippin’ from a bottle of vodka double wine
Sweet sugar candy man [whispered]

I met him out for dinner on a Friday night
He really had me working up an appetite
He had tattoos up and down his arm
There’s nothing more dangerous than a boy with charm
He’s a one stop shop, makes the panties drop
He’s a sweet-talkin’, sugar coated candy man
A sweet-talkin’, sugar coated candyman

Oh yeah..

He took me to the Spider Club at Hollywood and Vine
We drank champagne and we danced all night
We shook the paparazzi for a big surprise
the gossip tonight will be tomorrow’s headline

He’s a one stop shop, makes my cherry pop
He’s a sweet-talkin’, sugar coated candy man
A sweet-talkin’, sugar coated candyman

Se bop bop
Hey yeah


He’s a one stop shop, makes my cherry pop
He’s a sweet-talkin’, sugar coated candy man oh
A sweet-talkin’, sugar coated candyman

Woo yeah

Well by now I’m getting all bothered and hot
When he kissed my mouth he really hit the spot
He had lips like sugar cane
Good things come to boys who wait

Tarzan and Jane were swingin’ on a vine
Candy man, candy man
Sipping from a bottle of vodka double wine
Candy man, candy man

Sweet sugar candy man [whispered]
He’s a one stop, gotcha hot, making all the panties drop
Sweet sugar candy man [whispered]
He’s a one stop, got me hot, making my uh pop
Sweet sugar candy man [whispered]
He’s a one stop, get it while it’s hot, baby don’t stop
Sweet sugar [whispered]

He got those lips like sugar cane
Good things come for boys who wait

He’s a one stop shop with a real big uh
He’s a sweet-talkin’, sugar coated candyman [x3]

Tarzan and Jane were swingin’ on a vine [x2]
Sippin’ from a bottle of vodka double wine [x2]
Jane lost her grip and a-down she fell [x2]
Squared herself away as she let out a yell [x2]

Happy Sunday to you all. Please hop over to Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday and find more weird and wonderful songs about food 🙂
