Mambo Italiano

Rosemary Clooney


"Mambo Italiano" is a popular song written by Bob Merrill in 1954 and recorded by Rosemary Clooney. Merrill actually wrote it on deadline, scribbled hastily on a paper napkin in an Italian restaurant in New York, United States using the wall pay-phone to dictate the melody, rhythm and lyrics to the recording studio pianist, under the aegis of conductor Mitch Miller. The song became a hit for Rosemary, reaching #10 on the charts in the United States and number one in the UK Singles Chart early in 1955.



Rosemary Clooney (May 23, 1928 -- June 29, 2002) was an American singer and actress. She came to prominence in the early 1950s with the novelty hit "Come On-a My House" written by William Saroyan and his cousin Ross Bagdasarian (David Seville), which was followed by other pop numbers such as "Botch-a-Me" (a cover version of the Italian song Ba-Ba-Baciami Piccina by Alberto Rabagliati), "Mambo Italiano", "Tenderly", "Half as Much", "Hey There" and "This Ole House", though she would go on to success as a jazz vocalist.

Jar of Hearts

Sam Tsui


I know I can’t take one more step towards you,
Cause all that's waiting is regret.
Don’t you know I’m not your ghost anymore?
You lost the love I loved the most.

I learned to live, half alive,
And now you want me one more time.

And who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars,
Collecting your jar of hearts,
and Tearing love apart.
You’re gonna catch a cold,
From the ice inside your soul.
So don’t come back for me.
Who do you think you are?

I hear you’re asking all around,
If I am anywhere to be found.
But I have grown too strong,
To ever fall back in your arms..

I've learned to live, half alive,
And now you want me one more time.

And who do you think you are?
Runnin’ ’round leaving scars,
Collecting your jar of hearts,
And tearing love apart.
You’re gonna catch a cold,
From the ice inside your soul
So don’t come back for me.

Who do you think you are?

And it took so long just to feel alright.
Remember how to put back the light in my eyes?
I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed,
Cause you broke all your promises,
And now you’re back.
You don’t get to get me back.


And who do you think you are?
Running around leaving scars,
Collecting your jar of hearts,
And tearing love apart.
You’re gonna catch a cold,
From the ice inside your soul.
So don’t come back for me,
Don't come back at all.


And who do you think you are?
Running around leaving scars,
Collecting your jar of hearts,
And tearing love apart.
You’re gonna catch a cold,
From the ice inside your soul.
So don’t come back for me,
Don't come back at all.


Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?

Silent All The Years / 冷戰 (1991 / 1994)

Tori Amos - Silent All The Years (1991)


Lyrics
Excuse me but can I be you for a while
My dog won't bite if you sit real still
I got the anti-Christ in the kitchen yellin' at me again
Yeah I can hear that
Been saved again by the garbage truck
I got something to say you know
But nothing comes
Yes I know what you think of me
You never shut-up
Yeah I can hear that

But what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of his
With her name still on it
Hey but I don't care
Cause sometimes
I said sometimes
I hear my voice
And it's been here
Silent All These Years

So you found a girl
Who thinks really deep thougts
What's so amazing about really deep thoughts
Boy you best praya that I bleed real soon
How's that thought for you
My scream got lost in a paper cup
You think there's a heaven
Where some screams have gone
I got 25 bucks and a cracker
Do you think it's enough
To get us there

Cause what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of his
With her name still on it
Hey but I don't care
Cause sometimes
I said sometimes
I hear my voice
And it's been here
Silent All These...

Years go by
Will I still be waiting
For somebody else to understand
Years go by
If I'm stripped of my beauty
And the orange clouds
Raining in head
Years go by
Will I choke on my tears
Till finally there is nothing left
One more casualty
You know we're too easy Easy Easy

Well I love the way we communicate
Your eyes focus on my funny lip shape
Let's hear what you think of me now
But baby don't look up
The sky is falling
Your mother shows up in a nasty dress
It's your turn now to stand where I stand
Everybody lookin' at you here
Take hold of my hand
Yeah I can hear them

But what if I'm a mermaid
In these jeans of his
With her name still on it
Hey but I don't care
Cause sometimes
I said sometimes
I hear my voice [x3]

And it's been here
Silent All These Years
I've been here
Silent All These Years

Fly Me To The Moon

小野麗莎


Fly me to the moon, and
let me play among those stars
Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars

In other words, hold my hand
In other words, Darling, kiss me

Fill my heart with song, and
let me sing forever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

Natalie Portman



The Oscar-winning Black Swan star said, "I am deeply shocked and disgusted by the video of John Galliano's comments that surfaced today. In light of this video, and as an individual who is proud to be Jewish, I will not be associated with Mr. Galliano in any way."

Bernard! Mind to stop the airplay of this video?

No More John! No More Dior!

Where is Mr. Galliano?
