Matchbox – Midnight Dynamos 1980

You better beware and you better take care
When we hit the town tonight –
Kick away the blues
No time to lose honey
We can make it right
Pretty little thing
How your heart will sing
Fill it up with pure delight
In a supercharge from the gas garage
Explode like dynamite

We are the midnight dynamo’s
Only come alive when the old moon shows
We are the midnight
We are the midnight
Midnight dynamo’s
We are the midnight
Midnight dynamo’s

We are the midnight dynamo’s
So baby get a load of the fancy clothes
We are the midnight dynamo’s
We are the midnight
Midnight…

Hurry on down pretty mama we’re bound now
And we’re really set to go
You’ve never been alive cut the fancy jive
Don’t you ever tell me no
Come-acome-away hear to the hot band play
How they always steal the show
Gonna wear you out make you jump and shout
You won’t have time to blow

We are the midnight dynamo’s

Any place we cruisin’
People know us one by one
Ready packed for action fun
For all and all for fun
We are the midnight dynamo’s

Crazy Rhythm – Música

“Crazy Rhythm” is a thirty-two-bar swing show tune written in 1928 by Irving Caesar, Joseph Meyer, and Roger Wolfe Kahn for the Broadway musical Here’s Howe.

Roaring 20s: Crazy Rhythm – Roger Wolfe Kahn & His Orch.,1928

Only the verses in bold are sung in this version

I feel like the Emperor Nero when Rome was a very hot town
Father Knickerbocker, forgive me, I play while your city burns down
Through all its night life I fiddle away
It’s not the right life, but think of the pay
Someday I will bid it goodbye, I’ll put my fiddle away and I’ll say

Crazy rhythm here’s the doorway
I’ll go my way, you’ll go your way
Crazy rhythm from now on we’re through
Here is where we have a showdown
I’m too high-hat, you’re too low-down
Crazy rhythm here’s goodbye to you

They say that when a high-brow meets a low-brow walking along Broadway
Soon the high-brow, he has no brow
Ain’t it a shame, and you’re to blame
What’s the use of Prohibition?
You produce the same condition
Crazy rhythm I’ve gone crazy, too

Ev’ry Greek, each Turk and each Latin, the Russians and Prussians as well
When they seek the lure of Manhattan, are sure to come under your spell
Their native folksongs they soon throw away
Those Harlem smoke songs, they soon learn to play
Can’t you fall for Carnegie Hall, oh Danny, call it a day and we’ll say

Crazy rhythm here’s the doorway
I’ll go my way, you’ll go your way
Crazy rhythm from now on we’re through
Here is where we have a showdown
I’m too high-hat, you’re too low-down
Crazy rhythm here’s goodbye to you

They say that when a high-brow meets a low-brow walking along Broadway
Soon the high-brow, he has no brow
Ain’t it a shame, and you’re to blame
What’s the use of Prohibition?
You produce the same condition
Crazy rhythm I’ve gone crazy, too

Mozart | Piano Concerto 9 – 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.

À Paris – Música

Ivo Livi, better known as Yves Montand (French pronunciation: ​[iv mɔ̃tɑ̃]; 13 October 1921 – 9 November 1991), was an Italian-French actor and singer.

————————

À Paris est une chanson française écrite en 1946 par Francis Lemarque, qui la chante sur un 78 tours publié en 1949. Elle est plus tard chantée par Yves Montand

Yves Montand A Paris

A Paris
Quand un amour fleurit
Ca fait pendant des s’maines
Deux coeurs qui se sourient
Tout ça parce qu’ils s’aiment
A Paris
Au printemps
Sur les toits les girouettes tournent
Et font les coquettes
Avec le premier vent
Qui passe indifférent
Nonchalant
Car le vent
Quand il vient à Paris
N’a plus qu’un seul souci
C’est d’aller musarder
Dans tous les beaux quartiers
De Paris
Le soleil, qui est son vieux copain
Est aussi de la fête
Et comme deux collégiens
Ils s’en vont en goguette
Dans Paris
Et la main dans la main
Ils vont sans se frapper
Regardant en chemin si Paris a changé.

Y a toujours
Des taxis en maraude
Qui vous chargent en fraude,
Avant le sationnement
Où y a encore l’agent des taxis
Au café, on voit n’importe
Qui qui boit n’importe quoi
Qui parle avec ses mains
Qu’est là depuis l’matin
Au café
Y a la Seine
A n’importe quelle heure
Ellle a ses visiteurs
Qui lla r’gardent dans les yeux
Ce sont ses amoureurx, à la Seine
Et y ceux, ceux qui ont fait leur lit
Près du lit de la Seine
Et qui s’lavent à midi,,
Tous les jours de la s’maine, dans la Seine

Et les autres, ceux qui en ont vu d’trop
Et qui veulent oublier, alors, ils’jettent à l’eau
Mais la Seine,
Ellle préfère
Voir les jolis bateaux naviguer sur elle
Et au fil de son eau, jouer aux caravelles, sur la Seine
Les ennuis, y’en a pas qu’à Paris,
Y’en a dans l’monde entier
Oui, mais dansl’monde entier,
Y’a pas partout Paris
V’là l’ennui
A Paris, au quatorze juillet
A la lueur des lampions
On danse sans arrêt
Au son d’l’accordéon
Dans les rues

Depuis qu’à Paris
On a pris la Bastille
Dans tous les faubourgs
Et chaque carrefour,
Il y a des gars et il y a des filles
Qui, , sans arrêt, sur les pavés
Nuit et jour, font des tours
Et des tours
A Paris !

I’m just a woman, a lonely woman
Waiting on the weary shore
I’m just a woman who’s only human
One you should feel sorry for

It was a morning, long before dawn
Without a warning I found he was gone
How could he do it, why should he do it
He never done it before

Am I blue, am I blue
Aint these tears in these eyes telling you
How can you ask me am I blue
Why, wouldnt you be too
If each plan with your man
Done fell through

There was a time
When I was his only one
But now I’m the sad and lonely one…lonely
Was I gay, until today
Now he’s gone, and we’re through
Am I blue

**********

As recorded by RITA COOLIDGE:

Am I blue, am I blue
Ain’t these tears in my eyes tellin’ you

Am I blue, you’d be too
If each plan with your man done fell through

There was a time, I was the only one
But now I’m the sad and lonely one, ooh lawdy

Was I gay till today
Now he’s gone and we’re through, am I blue

(Instrumental Break)

There was a time, I was the only one
But now I’m the sad and lonely one, ooh lawdy

Was I gay till today
Now he’s gone and we’re through
Now he’s gone and we’re through, am I blue

(Transcribed by Mel Priddle – October 2007)

**********

As recorded by EDDIE COCHRAN:

Well am I blue, am I blue
Ain’t these tears in my eyes tellin’ you

Well am I blue, you’d be too
If your pal says your gal’s done with you

There was a time, I was the only one
But now I’m the sad and lonely one, oh dear

Well was I gay, I should say
Now she’s gone and we’re through, am I blue

The Trolley Song – Música

“The Trolley Song” is a song written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane and made famous by Judy Garland in the 1944 film Meet Me in St. Louis. In a 1989 NPR interview, Blane said the song was inspired by a picture of a trolleycar in a turn-of-the-century newspaper. In 1974 he had said that the picture was in a book he’d found at the Beverly Hills Public Library and was captioned “‘Clang, Clang, Clang,’ Went the Trolley.”

MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS (’44): “The Trolley Song”

1944 HITS ARCHIVE: The Trolley Song – Judy Garland

With my high-starched collar and my high-top shoes
And my hair piled high upon my head
I went to lose a jolly hour on the trolley and lost my heart instead
With his light brown derby and his bright green tie
He was quite the handsomest of men
I started to yen so I counted to ten
Then I counted to ten again

Clang, clang, clang went the trolley
Ding, ding, ding went the bell
Zing, zing, zing went my heartstrings
From the moment I saw him I fell

Chug, chug, chug went the motor
Bump, bump, bump went the break
Thump, thump, thump went my heartstrings
When he smiled I could feel the car shake

He tipped his hat and took a seat
He said he hoped he hadn’t stepped upon my feet
He asked my name, I held my breath
I couldn’t speak because he scared me half to death

Buzz, buzz, buzz went the buzzer
Flop, flop, flop went the wheels
Stop, stop, stop went my heartstrings
As he started to go then I started to know
How it feels
When the Universe reels

The day was bright, the air was sweet
The smell of honeysuckle charmed you off your feet
You tried to sing but couldn’t squeak
In fact you loved him so you couldn’t even speak

Buzz, buzz, buzz went the buzzer
Flop, flop, flop went the wheels
Stop, stop, stop went my heartstrings
As he started to leave
I took hold of his sleeve with my hand
And as if it were planned

He stayed on with me
And it was grand just to stand
With his hand holding mine
To the end of the line

Discography
1942 – Mon amant de Saint-Jean

Lucienne Delyle ~ Mon Amant de Saint-Jean (1942)

1 – Je ne sais pourquoi j’allais danser
A Saint-Jean au musette,
Mais il m’a suffit d’un seul baiser
Pour que mon coeur soit prisonnier
Comment ne pas perdre la tête,
Serrée par des bras audacieux
Car l’on croit toujours Aux doux mots d’amour
Quand ils sont dits avec les yeux
Moi qui l’aimais tant,
Je le trouvais le plus beau de Saint-Jean,
Je restais grisée, Sans volonté, Sous ses baisers.

2 – Sans plus réfléchir, je lui donnais
Le meilleur de mon être
Beau parleur chaque fois qu’il mentait,
Je le savais, mais je l’aimais.
Comment ne pas perdre la tête,
Serrée par des bras audacieux
Car l’on croit toujours Aux doux mots d’amour
Quand ils sont dits avec les yeux
Moi qui l’aimais tant,
Je le trouvais le plus beau de Saint-Jean,
Je restais grisée, Sans volonté, Sous ses baisers.

3 – Mais hélas à Saint-Jean comme ailleurs
Un serment n’est qu’un leurre
J’étais folle de croire au bonheur,
Et de vouloir garder son coeur.
Comment ne pas perdre la tête,
Serrée par des bras audacieux
Car l’on croit toujours Aux doux mots d’amour
Quand ils sont dits avec les yeux
Moi qui l’aimais tant,
Mon bel amour, mon amant de Saint-Jean,
Il ne m’aime plus, C’est du passé, N’en parlons plus (bis)
