Mozart: Symphony No. 4 in D major, K. 19 (Complete) – Música

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Salzburg, 27 de gener de 1756 − Viena, 5 de desembre de 1791) fou un compositor austríac, àmpliament considerat un dels més destacats de la història de la música occidental. La seva influència va ser profundíssima, tant en el món germànic com en el llatí. A diferència de qualsevol altre compositor en la història musical, va escriure en tots els gèneres musicals de la seva època i va excel·lir-ne en cadascú, així com per la seva sorprenent fluïdesa de composició.

Johnny Tillotson – Poetry In Motion

When I see my baby
What do I see
Poetry
Poetry in motion

Poetry in motion
Walkin’ by my side
Her lovely locomotion
Keeps my eyes open wide

Poetry in motion
See her gentle sway
A wave out on the ocean
Could never move that way

I love every movement
And there’s nothing I would change
She doesn’t need improvement
She’s much too nice to rearrange

Poetry in motion
Dancing close to me
A flower of devotion
A swaying gracefully

Whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whooooooooa

Poetry in motion
See her gentle sway
A wave out on the ocean
Could never move that way

I love every movement
There’s nothing I would change
She doesn’t need improvement
She’s much too nice to rearrange

Poetry in motion
All that I adore
No number-nine love potion
Could make me love her more

Whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Left me sleepin’ in my bed

Wake me up before you go-go
Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go

You take the grey skies out of my way (do do)
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day
Turned a bright spark into a flame (yeah yeah)

‘Cause you’re my lady, I’m your fool
It makes me crazy when you act so cruel
Come on, baby, let’s not fight
We’ll go dancing, everything will be all right

Wake me up before you go-go
Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don’t want to miss it when you hit that high

It was certified silver for 200,000 sold copies in United Kingdom in 1974.

Barry White – My First My Last My Everything – Lyrics

Ally Mcbeal – John Cage Birthday Present Barry White

We got it together, didn’t we?
We definitely got our thing together, don’t we baby?
Isn’t that nice?
I mean, when you really sit and think about it, isn’t it really, really nice?
I can easily feel myself slipping more and more ways
Slip in world of my own
Nobody but you and me
We’ve got it together, baby

The first, my last, my everything
And the answer to all my dreams
You’re my sun, my moon, my guiding star
My kind of wonderful, that’s what you are

I know there’s only, only one like you
There’s no way they could have made two
Girl, you’re all I’m living for
Your love I’ll keep for evermore
You’re the first, you’re the last, my everything

In you I’ve found so many things
A love so new only you could bring
Can’t you see if you, you make me feel this way
You’re like a first morning dew on a brand new day

I see so many way that I
Can love you till the day I die
You’re my reality, yet I’m lost in a dream
You’re the first, the last, my everything

I know there’s only, only one like you
There’s no way they could have made two
Girl you’re my reality
But I’m lost in a dream
You’re the first, you’re the last, my everything

You and me, babe
Just you and me
You are the first, the last, my everything

L’Arxiu Gavín col·labora en la descoberta d’una església romànica a Ovís (Areny de Noguera) | Monestir de les Avellanes

L’Arxiu Gavín del Monestir de les Avellanes (Centre de Documentació de Cultura Popular i Religiosa de Catalunya) col·labora des de fa un temps amb el Sr. Cristian Laglera Bailo (Osca, Aragó) per descobrir noves esglésies a la zona de la Franja de Ponent i incorporar-les a l’inventari fotogràfic d’esglésies que preserva l’arxiu.

El passat 5 d’agost de 2018, gràcies al Sr. Cristian Laglera i al seu col·laborador, el Sr. Francisco Martí, hem pogut fotografiar i ajudar a netejar les restes d’una ermita romànica al poble d’Ovís (un poble deshabitat que pertany al municipi d’Areny de Noguera). L’ermita, que de la qual en desconeixem l’advocació.

Agafem aquí la descripció que en fa el Sr. Laglera al seu bloc “Templos que fueron” De l’anàlisi visual de les restes, s’observa que va ser un temple d’una sola nau, acabat amb l’absis semicircular encarat a l’est, com és característic en aquestes construccions romàniques. Només són visibles els murs sur i una mica l’est. La resta estan remplenats de terra, ja que la zona s’utilizà per al conreu.

Puttin’ On The Ritz – Música

“Puttin’ On the Ritz” is a song written by Irving Berlin. He wrote it in May 1927 and first published it on December 2, 1929. It was registered as an unpublished song August 24, 1927 and again on July 27, 1928. It was introduced by Harry Richman and chorus in the musical film Puttin’ On the Ritz (1930). According to The Complete Lyrics of Irving Berlin, this was the first song in film to be sung by an interracial ensemble. The title derives from the slang expression “to put on the Ritz”, meaning to dress very fashionably. The expression was inspired by the opulent Ritz Hotel.
Hit phonograph records of the tune in its original period of popularity of 1929–1930 were recorded by Harry Richman and by Fred Astaire, with whom the song is particularly associated. Every other record label had their own version of this popular song (Columbia, Brunswick, Victor, and all of the dime store labels). Richman’s Brunswick version of the song became the number-one selling record in America.

Fred Astaire – Puttin On the Ritz

Puttin’ On The Ritz [Song by Irving Berlin] 1930

Have you seen the well-to-do
Up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air

High hats and arrowed collars
Wide spats and lots of dollars
Spending every dime
For a wonderful time

If you’re blue and you don’t know
Where to go to, why don’t you go
Where fashion sits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

Different types, who wear a day coat
Pants with stripes, and cut away coat
Perfect fits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper
Super-duper!

Come, let’s mix where Rockerfellers
Walk with sticks, or umber-ellas
In their mitts
Puttin’ on the Ritz

Spangled gowns upon a beauty
Of hand-me-downs, on clown and cutie
All misfits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

Strolling up the avenue so happy
All dressed up just like an English chappie
Very snappy!

You’ll declare it’s simply topping
To be there, and hear them swapping
Smart tidbits
Puttin’ on the Ritz
Puttin’ on the Ritz
Puttin’ on the Ritz

******

ALTERNATE VERSE:

Tips his hat just like an English chappie
To a lady with a wealthy pappy
Very Snappy!

******

IRVING BERLIN’S ORIGINAL LYRICS
The original version of Berlin’s song referred to the then-popular
fad of well-to-do white New Yorkers visiting African American jazz
music venues in Harlem. Berlin later revised the lyrics because of
the racial references and to make it more generally applicable to
going out on the town in style:

Have you seen the well-to-do
Up on Lennox Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air

High hats and arrow collars
White spats and fifteen dollars
Spending ev’ry dime
For a wonderful time

If you’re blue and
You don’t know where to go to
Why don’t you go where Harlem sits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

Spangled gowns upon the bevee of high browns
From down the levee
All misfits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

That’s where each and ev’ry Lulu-Belle goes
Ev’ry Thursday evening with her swell beaus
Rubbing elbows

Come with me and we’ll attend
The jubilee, and see them spend
Their last two bits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

** Some lyric explanations:
Lennox Avenue – A main thoroughfare in Harlem.
High browns – A variation of the phrase “high yellow”, referring to
someone of mixed racial background, usually with the inference that
they’re putting on airs beyond their social station.
Lulu-Belle – A generic nickname for a black maid.
Ev’ry Thursday evening – Typically, the maid’s night off.

Astaire’s 1935 recording with the Leo Reisman Orchestra was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2000. In 2004, Astaire’s version finished at No. 15 on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Songs survey of top tunes in American cinema.

Fred Astaire – Cheek to Cheek

Heaven, I’m in Heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak;
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together dancing, cheek to cheek

Heaven, I’m in Heaven
And the cares that hung around me thro’ the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler’s lucky streak
When we’re out together dancing, cheek to cheek

Oh! I love to climb a mountain
And to reach the highest peak
But it doesn’t thrill me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

Oh! I love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I don’t enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

Dance with me
I want my arm about you;
The charm about you
Will carry me thro’ to Heaven

I’m in Heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak;
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek

Paul Anka – Put Your Head On My Shoulder (1959) HQ Audio

Put your head on my shoulder
Hold me in your arms, baby
Squeeze me oh so tight
Show me that you love me too

Put your lips next to mine, dear
Won’t you kiss me once, baby
Just a kiss goodnight, maybe
You and I will fall in love
(You and I will fall in love)

People say that love’s a game
A game you just can’t win
If there’s a way
I’ll find it someday
And then this fool will rush in

Put your head on my shoulder
Whisper in my ear, baby
Words I want to hear
Tell me, tell me that you love me too
(Tell me that you love me too)

Put your head on my shoulder
Whisper in my ear, baby
Words I want to hear, baby
Put your head on my shoulder
