Where am I heading to on this happy avenue?
All the people I pass by are strangers

The town is like a toy box, glittering and shining
Deceiving and concealing, like a magic trick

Singing voices in prayer can be heard, on the opposite side of the bus

If only I could become kind tonight
React to everything and smile

A boy wearing a wool cap burst loudly into tears
He says he wants to grab the stars floating in the sky and decorate a tree with them

I wait in vain, looking at my wris*****ch, with red cheeks
While warming my chilly hands with my white breath

A weather satellite keeps on rotating

If only I could be kind to someone
React to everything and laugh

The reason why I feel lonelier on this day
Is because I want to be happier than the rest of the year

Because I end up comparing

Shoulders collided, a head was lowered in apology, a person was glared at
A beloved person who was hugged tightly by a liar

The town is like a toy box, glittering and shining
It swallows everyone, even you and me

These things I'm not able to forgive, to understand
To acknowledge, to talk about

If only I could become kind tonight
React to everything and laugh

If only someone could be nice to me too
If only I could laugh with you

Laugh with you

People waiting at the traffic light let out surprised voices upon seeing a shooting star
I overlooked it like on other days, why does this always happen?

But even so, today, I felt happy
As long as someone saw it, it's great

I now want to tell that I came to feel this way
I want to tell someone, you

I want people to be nice to me, to look at me
All the people I pass by are strangers

La La La

Strangers who sing the same La La La
At the other end of a phone call that was cut, echoes the same La La La
It would be nice if that happened, but maybe it won't
At the other end of the earphones, echoes the same La La La

Merry Christmas

I had this come on my playlist at the house a little while ago,so I turned it up loud on the house system so it would go throughout the house pretty loud..

My boys came out of their rooms dancing and started dancing with me..

We had a good time..

This is one of my favorite songs from,A Tribe Called Red.

A Tribe Called Red- Sisters ft Northern Voice

I heard this on another forum; a smart lady named Myf McMahon listed it in a collection of Christmas music and it instantly became part of my tiny collection of favorite Christmas songs. That was about three years ago; it still gets to me.

This is a triple-header but then I don't use up much space here most of the time so I figure I can get away with it. The other day I included an old Chuck Berry tune in a post elsewhere and @Scylla Rhiadra said she'd always thought that was a Beatle's tune. Well, it WAS a Beatle's tune but for them it was a cover. I just saw another example of that in a thread today ("Please Mister Postman") and thought I'd play some originals.

The Beatles started in music playing mostly covers, just as any band would. A lot of their covers wound up on albums, again not too unusual. But the Beatles were so incredibly popular (didn't hurt they were also damn good musicians) that even their covers became big hits, and those songs kind of get credited to the Beatles now. The one I played by Chuck Berry was "Rock and Roll Music". I'll leave that out since it's just been done, but here are three more examples.

The Marvelettes:

Barrett Strong: 

And last, the Eisley Brothers with a song that almost everybody remembers as a Beatles song (Ferris Bueller had a lot to do with that). This one the Beatles improved, in my opinion; there version is more uptempo: 

There are more, but these three might be the best known.

Coincidentally, I had a discussion with someone in RL about one of these -- "Money" -- a month or so ago!

I am a little embarrassed to admit that I thought the tune was actually by The Flying Lizards. It was pointed out to me by a friend that it had been recorded by The Beatles. I don't think either of us knew it was actually by Barrett Strong until we googled it.

I don't think I've heard the Beatles version of "Please Mister Postman".  When I think of that song, I always hear it in my mind with female voices.

Well, what the hell.

It counts: I actually was listening to it a minute ago because of Dillon's post!

 

Stunningly enough, I actually like this!

Pfffft. Dillon is entirely entitled to her opinion! She doesn't want your endorsement or approval!

She wants your money.

If you ever want to slap someone, just do it and yell, “Mosquito!”
