Since I Don’t Have You-The Skyliners-original song-1959

I don’t have plans and schemes
And I don’t have hopes and dreams
I don’t have anything
Since I don’t have you

I don’t have fond desires
And I don’t have happy hours
I don’t have anything
Since I don’t have you

I don’t have happiness
And I guess
I never will ever again
When you walked out on me
In walked old misery
And he’s been here since then

I don’t have love to share
And I don’t have one who cares
I don’t have anything
Since I don’t have
You, you, you, you
You, you, you, you
You, you, you, you

La festa de l´escuma | HISTÒRIESDEMAR

Us heu preguntat alguna vegada com és que l´aigua de mar fa una escuma tan característica quan es remou? Contràriament al que alguns pugueu pensar, l´escuma que produeix el mar és un fenomen natural que no suposa cap risc pels usuaris.

La presència d´escumes en aigües litorals és un fenomen associat a determinades condicions meteorològiques, a la presencia de microorganismes de fitoplàncton i a la degradació de la matèria orgànica. Una petita part de les escumes però, es deu a l´activitat humana.

A la costa gallega, tot i estar en una regió amb elevada productivitat, en època hivernal no hi ha grans proliferacions de fitoplàncton, però si de matèria orgànica que és la responsable de la formació d´escumes. Navegant per un mar d´escuma a les Illes Atlàntiques. Foto: M. Pastoriza

Des del punt de vista físic una escuma es defineix com a un tipus de mescla heterogènia que es produeix quan es formen bombolles d´aire a la superfície d´un líquid agitat i sota la presència d´agents escumats que actuen com a tensoactius en la superfície de contacte de l´aigua amb l´aire. Aquestes substàncies atrapen les molècules d´aire i les envolten d´aigua. Així, l´escuma està constituïda per milions de bombolles d´aire que són capturades per l’agitació de l´aigua i es mantenen gràcies als agents tensoactius. Al tenir menys densitat que l´aigua, les escumes ocupen la part superior de la columna formant una capa que pot ser més o menys gruixuda.

Les escumes es generen per processos naturals relacionats amb la degradació de la matèria orgànica del mar i la producció vegetal pròpia del medi marí. El procés de formació de l’escuma s´afavoreix amb l’agitació que produeixen les onades, l´alcalinitat, la tensió superficial i la quantitat de substàncies orgàniques dissoltes en l’aigua de mar i la temperatura.

La Mediterrània, especialment quan està agitada, forma escumes.

Normalment la formació d´escuma està relacionada amb la producció primària que comporta l´aparició de substàncies dissoltes en l´aigua com ara carbohidrats i proteïnes, lignines, greixos o bé productes de la degradació dels organismes que formen part del plàncton i que actuen com a agents escumants. Segons això, la composició de l´escuma varia segons el lloc i l’activitat biològica de cada indret. Les substàncies contaminants que s´aboquen al mar contribueixen també en la formació d´escumes ja que els microorganismes hi creixen millor, augmenten la densitat de l´aigua i fan mantenir l´escuma més temps. Durant la primavera i la tardor és quan la productivitat del mar és més elevada i és en aquests períodes quan la formació d´escumes és més freqüent.

Tot i que la formació d´escumes és un fenomen natural, la seva aparició determina la percepció que es té sobre la qualitat de l´aigua i té conseqüències negatives en el sector turístic. En aquest sentit caldria educar als usuaris de les platges sobre el significat les l´escuma a les aigües de bany.

En els estudis que s´han realitzat sobre aquest tema s´ha vist que un dels microorganismes relacionats amb la formació d’escumes són les microalques del gènere Phaeocystis. Les proliferacions massives d´aquest organisme del fitoplàncton s´ha relacionat amb la formació d´escumes a la Mediterrània, al mar de Nord o la costa de Nova Gal·les del Sud convertint-se en una veritable festa de l´escuma.

Chuck Berry – Johnny B. Goode

Chuck Berry – Johnny B. Goode (Live 1958)

Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could play a guitar just like a-ringing a bell

Go go
Go Johnny go!
Go
Go Johnny go!
Go
Go Johnny go!
Go
Go Johnny go!
Go
Johnny B. Goode!

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Go sit beneath the tree by the railroad track
Oh, the engineer would see him sittin’ in the shade
Strummin’ with the rhythm that the drivers made
The people passing by, they would stop and say
“Oh my, but that little country boy could play”

Go go
Go Johnny go!
Go
Go Johnny go!
Go
Go Johnny go!
Go
Go Johnny go!
Go
Johnny B. Goode!

His mother told him, “Someday you will be a man,
And you will be the leader of a big ol’ band
Many people comin’ from miles around
To hear you play your music when the sun go down
Maybe someday your name’ll be in lights
Sayin’ ‘Johnny B. Goode tonight!'”

Go go
Go Johnny go!
Go go go Johnny go!
Go go go Johnny go!
Go go go Johnny go!
Go
Johnny B. Goode!

I’m Walkin’ – Música

“I’m Walkin'” is a 1957 song by Fats Domino, written together with frequent collaborator Dave Bartholomew. The single was Domino’s third release in a row to reach No. 1 on the R&B Best Sellers chart, where it stayed for six weeks. It also broadened the singer’s crossover appeal, peaking at No. 4 on the pop singles chart. The prominent saxophone solo was played by Herbert Hardesty. Frank Fields was on bass and Earl Palmer was on drums.
Notable cover versions
Later in 1957, Ricky Nelson covered a crossover version of the song on an episode of The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet; the single was released on Verve Records and reached No. 4 on the pop chart and No. 10 on the R&B chart. Its B-side was “A Teenager’s Romance”. After several Verve singles, Nelson also recorded for Imperial Records, the same label Domino was on at the time.

Tu balli il twist
Vuoi sembrare ancor più bella
Ma la moda è sempre quella se
Tu balli il twist

Portando un vestito in lamé
Vuoi sembrare ancor più bella
Ma la moda è sempre quella se
Tu balli il twist

She’s Crazy With The Heat – Música

The International Sweethearts of Rhythm was the first integrated all women’s band in the United States. During the 1940s the band featured some of the best female musicians of the day. They played swing and jazz on a national circuit that included the Apollo Theater in New York City, the Regal Theater in Chicago, and the Howard Theater in Washington, DC. After a performance in Chicago in 1943, the Chicago Defender announced the band was, “One of the hottest stage shows that ever raised the roof of the theater!” More recently, they have been labeled “the most prominent and probably best female aggregation of the Big Band era.” During feminist movements of the 1960s and 1970s in America, the International Sweethearts of Rhythm regained a significant amount of popularity, particularly with feminist writers and musicologists who have made it their goal to change the discourse on the history of jazz to equally include both men and women musicians. Antionette Handy, flutist, documented the story of these female musicians of color.

Hooray for Hollywood – Música

“Hooray for Hollywood” is a song first featured in the 1937 movie Hollywood Hotel, and which has since become (together with “That’s Entertainment” and “Another Op’nin’, Another Show”) the staple soundtrack element of any Academy Awards ceremony. It is even frequently played during non-American movie ceremonies, e.g. the French César Awards. The popularity of the song is notably due to the lyrics by Johnny Mercer, which reference the American movie industry and satirize the illusory desire of many people to become famous as actors.
– Composition
The music was composed by Richard A. Whiting. In the original movie it was sung by Johnnie Davis and Frances Langford, accompanied by Benny Goodman and his orchestra.
Lyrics can be difficult to fully understand today, as they refer to people (e.g. Aimee Semple) or cultural elements (e.g. rotos) which have since been forgotten. The lyrics have also evolved over the years. Notably, the line “where any shopgirl can be a top girl, if she pleases the tired businessman” vanished quite quickly, and is absent from the 1958 Doris Day version, having been replaced with “and any barmaid can be a star made if she dances with or without a fan” The latter part of the line refers to Sally Rand and her fan dance. Today the song is performed mostly as a melody.

hooray for hollywood 1937

Hooray for Hollywood
That screwy ballyhooey Hollywood
Where any office boy or young mechanic can be a panic
With just a good looking pan
And any barmaid can be a star maid
If she dances with or without a fan

Hooray for Hollywood,
Where you’re terrific if you’re even good
Where anyone at all from Shirley Temple to Aimee Semple
Is equally understood
Go out and try your luck, you might be Donald Duck
Hooray for Hollywood

Hooray for Hollywood
That phoney super-Coney Hollywood
They come from Chillicothes and Paducas with their bazookas
To get their names up in lights
All armed with photos from local rotos
With their hair in ribbon and legs in tights

Hooray for Hollywood
You may be homely in your neighbourhood
But if you think that you can be an actor, see Mr. Factor
He’ll make a monkey look good
Within a half an hour you’ll look like Tyrone Power
Hooray for Hollywood

Hooray for Hollywood

**LYRIC VARIATIONS:

Hooray for Hollywood
That screwy ballyhooey Hollywood
Where any office boy or young mechanic can be a panic
With just a good looking pan
And any shop girl can be a top girl
If she pleases Mister Businessman

Hooray for Hollywood
Where you’re terrific, if you’re even good
Where anyone at all from TV’s Lassie to Monroe’s chassis
Is equally understood
Go out and try your luck, you might be Donald Duck
Hooray for Hollywood

To be an actor, see Mr. Factor
He’ll make your kisser look good

At the Hop – Música

Flash Cadillac & the Continental Kids, now known as Flash Cadillac, are an American retro rock ‘n’ roll band. They are best known for their portrayal of the group Herby and the Heartbeats in the film American Graffiti, to which they contributed three songs: cover versions of “At the Hop” and “Louie, Louie”, and the original composition “She’s So Fine”. Their version of “At the Hop” was released as a single in 1973. They had charts hits with “Dancin’ (on a Saturday Night)”, written by Lynsey De Paul and Barry Blue, “Good Times, Rock and Roll” and “Did You Boogie (With Your Baby)”. “Dancin’ (On A Saturday Night)” also reached the Swedish top 10 in 1974. They also released a cover version of Wizzard’s “See My Baby Jive” written by Roy Wood in 1977.
