Title: Song Suggestions for BBM Radio!!
Post by: injest on January 13, 2007, 02:43:11 am
here is a thread for us to offer Eric our suggestions for new songs for BBM radio...I dont see a current playlist....but here is a song I like for BBM...

You have to hear it to really 'get it'

Yesterday When I was Young

Roy Clark


Yesterday when I was young,
The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue,
I teased at life as if it were a foolish game,
The way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame

The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned,
I always built, alas, on weak and shifting sand,
I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day,
And only now I see how the years ran away

Yesterday, when I was young,
So many happy songs were waiting to be sung,
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me,
And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see

I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out,
I never stopped to think what life was all about,
And every conversation I can now recall,
Concerned itself with me, and nothing else at all

Yesterday, the moon was blue,
And every crazy day brought something new to do,
I used my magic age as if it were a wand,
And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond

The game of love I played with arrogance and pride,
And every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died,
The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away,
And only I am left on stage to end the play

There are so many songs in me that won't be sung,
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue,
The time has come for me to pay,
For yesterday, when I was young

and a woman...come on it is Dolly!! you can't have a country station and not have Dolly!



Artist/Band: Parton Dolly
Lyrics for Song: What Is It My Love
Lyrics for Album: White Limozeen


You hurt me, you use me, you lie
You're heartless and hateful and cold
You don't care how you make me cry
You must have the last word
And be in control
What is it about you I love

You're selfish and stubborn and proud
You're arrogant, boastful and vain
You're careless and thoughtless and loud
A flirt and a tease
And you cause me such pain
What is it about you I love
What is it, what is it my love

There's something about you
That I seem to need
I have a hunger you know how to feed
And you satisfy me like nobody else
Those moments of heaven
Are worth all this hell

And I know you love me in your own crazy way
And I know you need me more than you can say
I may be a fool but I'll never give up
'Cause there's something about you I love
What is it, what is it my love

And there's something about me
That you seem to need
'Cause you have a hunger I know how to feed
And I satisfy you like nobody else
Those moments of heaven
Are worth all this hell

And I know in my heart that you want to be good
I understand that you're misunderstood
You're insecure and defensively tough
There's something about you my love
What is it, what is it my love
There's something about you
That I seem to need
What is it, what is it my love

Artist/Band: Milsap Ronnie
Lyrics for Song: (I'd Be) A Legend in My Time
Lyrics for Album: 40 N1 Hits

If heartaches brought fame
In love's crazy game
I'd be a legend in my time
If they gave gold statuettes
For tears and regrets
Id be a legend in my time

But they dont give awards
And theres no praise or fame
For a heart that's been broken
over love thats in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim
Ev'ryone would know my name
I'd be a legend in my time

But they dont give awards
And theres no praise or fame
For a heart that's been broken
Over love thats in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim
Then ev'ryone would know my name
I'd be a legend in my time
I'd be a legend in my time

*Eric taking notes*

Jess!  Thank you for the suggestions.  :D

I've spent the last few weeks combing the "Songs that make me thing of BBM" and "Songs related to BBM" threads and I've got quite a hefty list to go through.  I'll add your suggestions to 'the list'.  Can't guarantee all of them will debut this month, but perhaps they will debut in future months.  (We will be changing/rotating/updating the playlist once a month.)

Our next BBM Radio Newsletter will come out this week, and our new playlist for January will go live on Monday 01/22 at 9:00pm EST.  More info will be in the newsletter.  Watch for it later this week.

Keep those suggestions coming!  :D

Eric

Eric, did you ever get those suggestions I gave in the other thread about BBM Radio?

 :)

Oh but they are all in the "Songs that make me think of BBM" thread!

Title: Re: Song Suggestions for BBM Radio!!
Post by: SFEnnisSF on January 15, 2007, 03:27:09 pm
Yep, I've got them all.  ;)

Again, can't promise all songs will be added this month.  I have almost 50 song suggestions, and about 15 slots open for new songs.  I'm gonna do my best to get the most relevant to BBM songs posted in those 15 slots.

Artist: Bill Anderson
Song: Still
Album: 20 Greatest Hits  


(Still) though you broke my heart (still) though we're far apart (I love you still)
(Still) after all this time (still) you're still on my mind (I love you still)
I've lost count of the hours and I've lost track of the days
In fact I've lost just about everything since you went away
Everything that is except the memories you left me
And that's one things that no one can mar
I don't know who you're with I don't even know where you've gone
My only hope is that some day you might hear this song
And you'll know I wrote it especially for you and I love you wherever you are
(Still) after all this time (still) you're still on my mind (I love you still)
This flame in my heart is like an eternal fire
For every day it burns hotter and every day it burns higher
And I haven't been able to put out one little flicker not even with all these tears
My friends think I'm crazy and maybe I am
But I'll carry this torch just as long as I can
For someday you might just decide to come home
And I want you to know I'm still here
(Still) thought you broke my heart (still) though you're far apart (I love you still)

Hey, It is the right time!! LOL!

some you have to hear to really get how pretty they are...that "Still" is just so pretty...

I'll look them up tho' I'm sure I've heard them.  It was uproariously funny, but in all the WV hot-tub-singin-at-dirge-slowness, we discovered that a few old Hank Williams ballads are gender-neutral!  (It made perfect sense to honor him because he died near where we stayed.)  It was after some whine ::) so I mistrusted my ears - but re-listening the next day, I still thought so..I think these are they:

Im so lonesome I could cry
Hear the lonesome whiperwill
He sounds too blue to fly
The midnight train is whining low
Im so lonesome I could cry

Ive never seen a night so long
When time goes crawling by
The moon just went behind a cloud
To hide its face and cry

Did you ever see a robin weep
When leaves begin to die
That means hes lost the will to live
Im so lonesome I could cry

The silence of a falling star
Lights up a purple sky
And as I wonder where you are
Im so lonesome I could cry

Cold, Cold Heart
I tried so hard my dear to show that youre my every dream.
Yet youre afraid each thing I do is just some evil scheme
A memory from your lonesome past keeps us so far apart
Why cant I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart

Another love before my time made your heart sad and blue
And so my heart is paying now for things I didnt do
In anger unkind words are said that make the teardrops start
Why cant I free your doubtful mind,and melt your cold cold heart

Youll never know how much it hurts to see you sat and cry
You know you need and want my love yet youre afraid to try
Why do you run and hide from lies,to try it just aint smart
Why cant I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart

There was a time when I believed that you belonged to me
But now I know your heart is shackled to a memory
The more I learn to care for you,the more we drift apart
Why cant I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart

I Can't Help It
today i passed you on the street
and my heart fell at your feet
I can't help it if i'm still in love with you
somebody else stood by your side
and he looked so satisfied
I can't help it if i'm still in love with you.

A picture from the past came slowly stealing
As i brushed your arm and walked so close to you
Then suddenly i got that old time feeling
I can't help it if i'm still in love with you.

It's hard to know another's lips will kiss you
And hold you just the way i used to do
Oh, heaven only knows how much i miss you
I can't help it if i'm still in love with you.

Post by: injest on January 25, 2007, 08:28:34 am
yes because at the time songs were meant to be very personal...they weren't writing for the radio audience (or not directed at the audience) but rather to seem like they were singing directly to an individual so the songs used first person a lot....you, me, I...and they could be sung by either male or female stars..

I Envy The Wind - Lucinda Williams from the album Essence

I envy the wind
That whispers in your ear
That howls through the winter
That freezes your fingers
That moves through your hair
And cracks your lips
And chills you to the bone
I envy the wind

I envy the rain
That falls on your face
That wets your eyelashes
And dampens your skin
And touches your tongue
And soaks through your shirt
And drips down your back
I envy the rain

I envy the sun
That brightens your summer
That warms your body
And holds you in her heat
And makes your days longer
And makes you hot
And makes you sweat
I envy the sun
I envy the wind, I envy the rain, I envy the sun, I envy the wind

I have a suggestion: "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult...the Romeo and Juliet song. This is the one Jack is talking about in chapter 1 of A Love Born From Steel.

Hanging by a thread - Jann Arden Richards

When I cry, I close my eyes
And every tear falls down inside
And I pray with all my might
That I will find my heart in someone's arms
When I cry, cry
When I cry, when I am sad
I think of every awful thing I ever did
When I cry, there is no love
No, there is nothing that can comfort me enough
When I cry
Cry, cry
(chorus)
The salt inside my body ruins
Everyone I come close to
My hands are barely holding up my head
Oh, I'm so tired of looking at my feet
And all the secrets that I keep
My heart is barely hangin' by a thread
Hangin' by a thread
Oh, look at me
At all I've done
I've lost so many things that I so dearly loved
I lost my soul
I lost my pride
Oh, I lost any hope of having a sweet life
So I cry
Cry, cry


 :'( So very sad... especially that sweet life....

This is a good one I was listening to this morning from The Essential Bob Dylan

It's All Over Now, Baby Blue

You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last.
But whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast.
Yonder stands your orphan with his gun,
Crying like a fire in the sun.
Look out the saints are comin' through
And it's all over now, Baby Blue.

The highway is for gamblers, better use your sense.
Take what you have gathered from coincidence.
The empty-handed painter from your streets
Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets.
This sky, too, is folding under you
And it's all over now, Baby Blue.

All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home.
All your reindeer armies, are all going home.
The lover who just walked out your door
Has taken all his blankets from the floor.
The carpet, too, is moving under you
And it's all over now, Baby Blue.

Leave your stepping stones behind, something calls for you.
Forget the dead you've left, they will not follow you.
The vagabond who's rapping at your door
Is standing in the clothes that you once wore.
Strike another match, go start anew
And it's all over now, Baby Blue.

I already gave this one to Eric, but thought I would post the lyrics.

Go Rest High On That Mountain
By:  Vince Gill


I know your life on earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

Go rest high on that mountain
Son your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a-shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son

Oh, how we cried the day you left us
We gathered round your grave to grieve
Wish I could see the angels' faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing

Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a-shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son.

Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a-shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son.

This is already on the current playlist Lil' Darlin'.  ;)  :D

What Hurts The Most

Rascal Flatts

I can take the rain
On the roof of this empty house
That don’t bother me
I can take a few tears now and then
And I just let ‘em out
I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though goin’ on with you gone still upsets me
There are days every now and again
I pretend I’m okay
But that’s not what gets me

Chorus

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And havin’ so much to say
And watchin’ you walk away
And never knowin’
What could’ve been
And not seein’ that lovin’ you
Is what I was tryin’ to do

It’s hard to deal with the pain
Of losin’ you everywhere I go
But I’m doin’ it
It’s hard to force that smile
When I see our old friends and I’m alone
Still harder gettin’ up, gettin’ dressed, livin’ with this regret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade, give away
All the words that I saved in my heart
That I left unspoken

Not seein’ that lovin’ you
That’s what I was trying to do
Oooo, Oooo, Oooo –

Aye, aye captain!

This may be playing already but I like the original version:

"Only Love Can Break Your Heart"
Neil Young


When you were young
and on your own
How did it feel
to be alone?
I was always thinking
of games that I was playing.
Trying to make
the best of my time.

But only love
can break your heart
Try to be sure
right from the start
Yes only love
can break your heart
What if your world
should fall apart?

I have a friend
I've never seen
He hides his head
inside a dream
Someone should call him
and see if he can come out.
Try to lose
the down that he's found.

But only love
can break your heart
Try to be sure
right from the start
Yes only love
can break your heart
What if your world
should fall apart?

I have a friend
I've never seen
He hides his head
inside a dream
Yes, only love
can break your heart
Yes, only love
can break your heart

"When You Come Back To Me Again" by Garth Brooks

There's a ship out
On the ocean
At the mercy of the sea
It's been tossed about
Lost and broken
Wandering aimlessly
And God somehow
You know that ship is me
'Cause there's a lighthouse
In the harbour
Shining faithfully
Pouring its light out
Across the water
For this sinking soul to see
That someone out there
Still believes in me

On a prayer, in a song
I hear your voice and
It keeps me hanging on
Raining down
Against the wind
I'm reaching out till
We reach the circle's end
When you come
Back to me again

There's a moment
We all come to
In our own time and
Our own space
Where all that we've done
We can undo
If our heart's
In the right place

On a prayer, in a song
I hear your voice and
It keeps me hanging on
Raining down
Against the wind
I'm reaching out till
We reach the circle's end
When you come
Back to me again
And again I see
My yesterday's in front of me
Unfolding like a mystery
You're changing all that is
And used to be

On a prayer, in a song
I hear your voice and
It keeps me hanging on
Raining down
Against the wind
I'm reaching out till
We reach the circle's end
When you come
Back to me again

When you come
Back to me again

And btw, choosing the Collin Raye version was inspired!!  Updated, but still classic - nothing 'lost in translation' whatsoever.

Ok, i know I keep harping on about this song, but do you think you could squeeze 'Bookends Theme' by Simon & Garfunkel in? It's only just over a minute long so you could always pair it with 'Old Friends' to make a longer segment - both songs have similar themes. 'Bookends' is still the most perfect non-BBM BBM song for me  :'(

Great job on the station btw!  :D

I've got another one  :)

Is 'Dream a Little Dream of Me' by Mama Cass on the playlist yet? I heard it on the radio the other day and it's a gorgeous song and very BBM. Plus it was used by another favourite film of many on the board - 'Beautiful Thing' - as it's closing number.
Title: Re: Song Suggestions for BBM Radio!!
Post by: Front-Ranger on February 22, 2007, 01:43:06 am
This is for the guy in the Mint Bar who started it all:

"Old Man" (Neil Young)

Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,
Twenty four
and there's so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
that don't get lost.
Like a coin that won't get tossed
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that's true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.
Doesn't mean that much to me
To mean that much to you.

I've been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I'm all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that's true.

Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.

Lynne, my goodness do you ever sleep?

I think that the BBM answer to that one is 'Not often.'  ;)

Actually, I do sleep, but I keep getting onto an odd schedule...don't know why. ???

All great suggestions here!  I would love to hear the Dylan version of 'He Was a Friend of Mine.'  I also think the Neil Young suggestion fits really well, doesn't it?

We've had a few requests for "Goodbye My Lover"...stay tuned on that one.

That is one intense song.  To me, many of the lyrics can be strongly BBM-related, not all, so I wouldn't personally suggest it but it's a great track so I would be cool with it on BBM radio.

A little OT tidbit: The singer used to be in the British Army & as well as serving in Bosnia he was one of the guards during the vigil for the Queen Mother.

Know what I'd like ta hear more of? Gordon Lightfoot - Know you played "If you could read my mind" in yer special at the beginnin a the month, but there's so much more that can be included in yer list: his version a "Me & Bobby McGee" preceeded Janis Joplin's version by about 8 months, I love album cuts like "Nous vivons ensemble (We've got to stay together)" and minor hits (well n Canada it wasn't minor) like "Beautiful" and "Rainy Day People"

Man! can that boy entertain.

Please consider includin at least one more tune: either "Me & Bobby McGee" or "Beautiful".

Appreciate it!

Hello. I have a song suggestion. It brings to mind the Sierra Motel scene vividly for me.

Artist: Richard Hawley
Album: Coles Corner
Year: 2005
Title: Hotel Room    


Ten thirty in this hotel room,
You and I locked in the gloom,
Lost out of love once again
But I've got you here with me friend

(Chorus)
Cos you're here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms

Last time I looked it was nine
You know that all things then were fine,
Now I've gone and lost it again
But I've got you here with me friend.

(Chorus)

(Solo)

You know that it's like leading a mild life
The clothes in my younger days were so wild
And it's time I met someone like you
And I hope to make certain that it's true

Last time I looked it was late
That's when I started to break
It's a long long way till the end
But I've got you here with me friend

Cos you're here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Put you here in my arms
Here in my arms.

I'm listening to a beautiful CD this a.m. while cleaning my house, and here's one that would be good for your playlist. The CD is Trio and the song is Feel's Like Home written by Randy Newman. It is performed by Linda Ronstadt with accompaniment by Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris.

Feel's Like Home

Something in your eyes makes me want to lose myself
Makes me want to lose myself in your arms
There's something in your voice makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts
The rest of my life

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I've felt so low
If you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you've done

Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

A window breaks down a long dark street
And a siren wails in the night
But I'm alright cause I have you here with me
And I can almost see through the dark there's light

If you knew how much the moment means to me
And how long I've waited for your touch
If you knew how happy you are making me
I've never thought I'd love anyone so much

Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

I am ecstatic that my song suggestions were included!! But that doesn't mean I don't have some others!! Here is one more that makes me think of Jack and Ennis. This is also from Trio II performed by Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, and Dolly Parton:

High Sierra

written by Harley L. Allen
© 1995 Coburn Music/ Silverhill Music (BMI)
 
I've been higher than the high sierra
Lower than death valley must be
I've been right, mostly wrong
Wrong about you, right about me
 
The way I feel, can't explain
So much passion turned to pain
The sun still shines most of the time
Did you know the sun shines when it rains
 
I've been higher than the high sierra
Lower than death valley must be
I've been right, mostly wrong
Wrong about you, right about me
 
I've been cussed and I've been praised
And I've been nothing these days
I'll come back, time will see
If I'm wrong about you, right about me
 
I've been higher than the high sierra
Lower than death valley must be
I've been right, mostly wrong
Wrong about you, right about me
Wrong about you, right about me
Wrong about you, right about me

This is one that Jack and Ennis had to be singing during their four years apart.

Do I Ever Cross Your Mind

written by Dolly Parton
© 1973 Velvet Apple Music (BMI)

Oh sometimes I go walking
Through fields where we walked
Long ago in the sweet used to be
And the flowers still grow
But they don't smell as sweet
As they did when you picked them for me

And when I think of you
And the love we once knew
How I wish we could go back in time
Do you ever think back on old memories like that
Or do I ever cross your mind

Do you ever wake up lonely
In the middle of the night
Because you miss me
Do you darling
Oh and do your memories ever take you
Back into another place and time
And do you ever miss the feelings
And the love we shared when you were with me
Tell me darling
Or do I ever cross your mind

Oh how often I wish
That again I could kiss
Your sweet lips like I did long ago
And how often I long
For those two loving arms
That once held me so gentle and close

And when I think of you
And the love we once knew
How I wish we could go back in time
Do you ever recall these old memories at all
Or do I ever cross your mind
Do I ever cross your mind
Tell me darling
Do I ever cross your mind

Okay, here is my last suggestion of the nite. This is listed in the screenplay in scene 120 but it didn't make it into the film:

Come and Get Your Love, Redbone

Hail (hail)
What's the matter with your head, yeah
Hail (hail)
What's the matter with your mind
And your sign an-a, oh-oh-oh
Hail (hail)
Nothin' the matter with your head
Baby find it, come on and find it
Hail, with it baby
'Cause you're fine
And you're mine, and you look so divine

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love

Hail (hail)
What's the matter with you feel right
Don't you feel right baby
Hail, oh yeah
Get it from the main vine, all right
I said-a find it, find it
Go on and love it if you like it, yeah
Hail (hail)
It's your business if you want some, take some
Get it together baby

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love, now

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love, now

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love, now

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love

Hail (hail)
What's the matter with you feel right
Don't you feel right baby
Hail, oh yeah
Get it from the main vine, all right

Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love
Come and get your love

Dylan may not be a singer any more but he used to be a fine one and if you listen to The Essential Bob Dylan you'll agree with me. More importantly, he made the effort to write all those old songs down. If he hadn't Willie Nelson wouldn't have been able to sing it, because it would have been lost.

I'm sorry, but I don't see where I've said I don't appreciate Bob Dylan's genius as a song writer - and his Lay Lady Lay / Knocking on Heaven's Door recordings probably cannot be improved upon by other singers, but I've never understood the attraction to his performance skills (as a singer) in his many other recordings. Much prefer other's interpretations of his early works. Don't mean I don't wanna hear his version a this phenomenal find a his (He Was a Friend a Mine) - just don't expect it to be better'n Willy Nelson's version, is all.

Howdy Sheriff (and everybody really),

Don't give up hope on your song suggestions making it onto the station.  There are many different factors that go into which songs are chosen to play/rotate in during each update.  Just because it didn't make it in this update, doesn't mean it won't make it in a future update...   :D

So Keep those suggestions coming!!  :D  :D

I had that feeling initially FR & it was so it detracted me from trying BBM for a while (also not having a love for folky/country music).  Strangely when I did try it I was utterly surprised to find my main reaction was to experience a calming feeling & a relaxation effect.  Last week, I had steam coming out my ears three times from work stuff - the first thing I did on each occasion when I got back in my office was to get BBM going.   

Thanks again Eric & Phil & co  :)

Fer yer consideration:

Michael Murphy's Wildfire

She Comes down from yellow mountain
On a dark, flat land she rides
On a pony she named Wildfire
When the world went by her side
On a cold Nebraska night

Oh they say she died one winter
When there came a killing frost
And the pony she named Wildfire
Busted down his stall
In a blizzard he was lost
She ran calling WILDFIRE!
she ran calling WILDFIRE! she ran calling WILDFIRE!

By the dark of the moon I planted
But there came an early snow
Theres been a hoot owl howling by my window now
For six nights in a row
Shes coming for me I know
And on WildFire were both gonna go
We'll be riding WILDFIRE!
We'll be riding WILDFIRE! We'll be riding WILDFIRE!

On WILDFIRE (were gonna ride)
(were gonna leave some behind)WILDFIRE!
(get these hard times right on outta our minds..riding wildfire) WILDFIRE!

I think of the boys (particularly the reunion, Ennis' POV) with this song.  (Probably not the deepest tune in the world, but it fits.)


It's been a long, long time. You're such a sight, you're
lookin' better than a body has a right to.
Don't you know we're playin' with the fire?
But we can stop this burnin' desire

Here we go again!
Is it ever gonna end?
Here we go again!

I see your lips and I wonder who's been kissin' them
I never knew how badly I was missin' them
We both know we're never going to make it
but when we touch, we never have to fake it

Baby, it's no good. We're just askin' for trouble
I can touch you, but I don't know how to love you
It ain't no use! We're headed for disaster
Our minds said "No" but our hearts were talkin' faster

For Jack --

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom,
blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision,
rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

Talking of Alison Krauss, this is my favorite Reminds-me-of-BBM song by her:

Stay - Alison Krauss

Where have you been,
My long lost friend?
It's good to see you again.
Come and sit for a while
I've missed your smile
Today the past is goodbye.
Time can't erase
A lover's embrace.
Can't you hear it calling?
A new day dawning
You were longing to find.

Love's taken you far
Away from my heart,
And I've been here all alone.
Have your eyes failed to find
What took you from mine,
A vision that's faded through time?
But you sailed away,
A fine summer's day,
Cause you heard it calling,
A new day dawning,
You were longing to find.

There is a way to make you stay.
Darlin don't turn away
Don't doubt your heart
and keep us apart
I'm right where you are
Stay

There is a way to make you stay.
Darling don't turn away.
Don't doubt your heart
and keep us apart
I'm right where you are
Stay.

Cause you heard it calling,
A new day dawning,
You were longing to find.

There is a way to make you stay.
Darlin don't turn away
Don't doubt your heart
and keep us apart
I'm right where you are
Stay

There is a way to make you stay.
Darling don't turn away.
Don't doubt your heart
and keep us apart
I'm right where you are
Stay.


Yes, Eva passed away on 11/2/96 after a valiant fight with cancer. Her voice is like no other.
I love Allison Krauss as well. I love  "I've got that old feelin" and "the lucky one" most of all.
I'm so glad there is a fellow Eva fan here.
I guess any heartfelt love song can bring to mind our boys!

 :D Well, I ended up downloading "I know you by heart" last night when I read your suggestion and it is just so beautiful....

Do you also like Gordon Lightfoot? I saw him in concert last week, in Sparta, New Jersey!

He wrote and sung the most beautiful song in the world (in my opinion...), Shadows:

Shadows, ©1982 by Gordon Lightfoot
                                                               
Let me reach out love and touch you
Let me hold you for awhile
I've been all around the world
Oh how I long to see you smile
There's a shadow on the moon
And the waters here below
Do not shine the way they should
And I love you just in case you didn't know
                                                               
Let it go, let it happen like it happened once before
It's a wicked wind
And it chills me to the bone
And if you do not believe me
Come and gaze upon the shadow at your door
                                                               
Won't you lie down by me baby
Run your fingers through my hands
I've been all around the town
And still I do not understand
Is it me or is it you
Or the shadow of a dream
Is it wrong to be in love
Could it be the finest love I've ever seen
                                                               
Set it free, let it happen like it happened once before
It's a wicked wind
And it chills me to the bone
And if you do not believe me
Come and gaze upon the shadow at your door
                                                               
Please kiss me gently darling
Where the river runs away
From the mountains in the springtime
On a blue and windy day
When there's beauty all around
As the shades of night grow deep
As the morning stars grow dim
They will find us in the shadows fast asleep
                                                               
Let it go, let it happen like it happened once before
It's a wicked wind
And it chills me to the bone
And if you do not believe me
Come and gaze upon the shadow at your door


I cry EVERY time I listen to this song, it makes me so nostalgic, because my parents used to play this song when I was very little and now it also reminds me of Jack and Ennis so much.... :'(

You know "Beautiful"? I made a request for that a couple a months ago (pay attention there Eric!! - that's two of us making the same request) Have you heard his version of "Me & Bobby McGee"? He released that song some six months before Janis Joplin had a hit with it. It a very lovely version of Kris Kristofferson's song.

Know what I'd like ta hear more of? Gordon Lightfoot - Know you played "If you could read my mind" in yer special at the beginnin a the month, but there's so much more that can be included in yer list: his version a "Me & Bobby McGee" preceeded Janis Joplin's version by about 8 months, I love album cuts like "Nous vivons ensemble (We've got to stay together)" and minor hits (well n Canada it wasn't minor) like "Beautiful" and "Rainy Day People"

Man! can that boy entertain.

Please consider includin at least one more tune: either "Me & Bobby McGee" or "Beautiful".

Appreciate it!

Do I know Beautiful? I heard him sing it on stage last week (and I met him after the show)!  :D
I love everything Gordon Lightfoot, I am probably his biggest fan outside Canada and the US! LOL! I loooooove "Beautiful", it's one of his best songs. If you love that, you will definitely LOVE "Can't depend on love", here are the lyrics (it really is Ennis's song):

I spent most of my life outside in the driving rain
I was only trying to get by with some of life's amenities
Well nothing's free
I got more than I bargained for, now it's plain to see
I can't depend on love to defend me

It took most of my time to do what never was done
I was on the outside of an inside kind of love that now is gone
Come right or wrong
It was laid to rest that way, I hate to be unkind
Pretending is for strangers who don't know you

I spent most of my life outside in the driving rain
I was in some one-horse town just waiting for a plane to take me back
Now where's that at
I paid the price, well ain't that nice, knowing I'm so free
I can't depend on love to defend me
I got more than I bargained for, now it's plain to see
I can't depend on love to defend me



Also agree on "Me and Bobby McGee" and "Nous vivons ensemble", they are beautiful....and do you also know "Talking in your sleep?" God, I adore that song!

I am sorry, I can't stop talking about Gordon Lightfoot, I am just so excited to find people who love his songs too! I always say that if Gordon Lightfoot, Alison Krauss and Gustavo had done the soundtrack of BBM together, the movie would have been perfect!  ;)

And yes, Eric, please play Beautiful on BBM Radio!

Well Mel (it is Mel, right?) you are not alone.

Talking in your Sleep was the follow-up single to 'If you Could Read my Mind' and the song always puts me through the hoops.

I listen to AM740 in Toronto (not so much on weekends cause that's when they sell time instead a playin good music) and they recently had a survey of listeners's preferences (it's a REAL oldies station) #1 Frank Sinatra, #2 Elvis, #3 Dean Martin (?!!), #4 Nat King Cole, #5 Glenn Miller - well you get the picture - The highest placing Canadians were Paul Anka #22 and Gordon Lightfoot at #23, so I'm hardly the only Lightfoot fan. - You can get the station on the internet now (only since Christmas) and I've already turned 'ifyoucanfixit' onto that station.

Have you heard his last CD? pretty good stuff - better than most a what he's released in the past 20 years. Highlights are 'Inspiration Lady' and 'Harmony'

Thank God I am not the only one!  :) I sometimes think I am because when I told my co-workers here they had no clue who he was and even a lot of Americans don't seem to know him. But you are Canadian, right? Have you always listened to his music? I grew up with it, because my dad was a fan, so even before I could speak English, I could sing along with his songs. My parents last saw him in concert in the Netherlands in 1975! When I met him last week I gave him a picture my parent's had taken at that concert and he had fond memories of Amsterdam! LOL.

He made a joke at the concert last week, he said that Elvis did a cover (is that the word?) of his song "Early morning rain" and that he changed one word in the lyrics, he changed 'can' into 'might'. He thought it was a pretty good change...

I haven't yet listened to his new cd that much, I am a sucker for the old stuff, his voice is so beautiful in the early years, I cannot describe what I feel when I hear his voice. Sadly, his voice has deteriorated and I noticed that at the concert he had a lot of trouble with his voice. But it was still Gordon Lightfoot! And he never sang out of tune.

I am listening to AM740 right now, thanks for the rec!

Well I'm listening to 'Talking in your Sleep' so I got you beat! AM740's not got anything much fer another 2 and a half hours taday - tune in at 10 (local time = 2 pm, yer time)

Best time to listen to AM740 is during the night - between 12:00 and 6:00 am (4:00 and 10:00 yer time) - no commercials.

Back to Gordon - they play a lot of Lightfoot on local stations - they have to play 40% canadian music, so for oldies music, there's not much to chose from. They even play the stuff he released as singles in the early 60's - stuff like '(Remember Me) I'm the One' and 'Negociations' from 1962. They were playing his music way before 1970 here - had some success in Canada with songs like 'Black Day in July', 'The Way I Feel', 'The First Time Ever I Saw her Face' and the Canadian classic 'Canadian Railroad Trilogy'

Back to the 'Summerside of Life' album - the one that contains 'Talking in your Sleep' - I also really like 'Cabaret'. He does infuse a lot a Canadiana in his music.

I got a lot of his stuff on the computer (mp3). If yer looking fer something, maybe I can share - send me a PM with any specific request.

Summerside of Life also has "Miguel", which shows how well he can tell stories in his songs, I love that about him.

Do you know Knotty Pine and Whispers of the North? They are both from "Salute". I don't know, but when I listen to these two songs, I get such feelings of nostalgia... it makes me sad and happy at the same time, just like BBM I guess...

No I don't - Don't know the album 'Salute' - If you have em on yer computer in mp3, you could send em ta my e-mail adress (in my profile!)

Noticed you've changed yer avatar!

Who's the other person with you on the picture with Lightfoot? seems I've seen her before.

Did you know, that before Lightfoot hit it big in the US (with If You Could Read My Mind), The Guess Who (from Winnipeg) started their huge career with "These Eyes" - on the flipside of that record was a tune they had penned called "Lighfoot" in honor of our man.

Hey! Yeah, that is what is so captivating, his voice, especially in the early days, is so incredible. That in combination with the stories he tells in his songs... he really is my hero.... And so well said, his songs are so different and beautiful and real....

Hey I am gonna try that youtube link and post one of the short videos I shot at the concert, here he is singing 'Beautiful'...

Here is another song that reminds me of Ennis and what he might be thinking..

**Nobody Knows**

I pretend that I'm glad you went away
But these four walls close in more every day
And I'm dying inside and nobody knows it
But me

Like a clown I put on a show
The pain is real even if nobody knows
And I'm crying inside and nobody knows it
But me

Why didn't I say the things I needed to say
How could I let my angel get away
Now my world is just-a tumblin' down
I can see it so clearly but you're nowhere around
The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinkin' about the love that we had
And I'm missing you and nobody knows it but me

How blue can I get, you could ask my heart
Just like a jigsaw puzzle it's been torn all apart
A million words couldn't say just how I feel
A million years from now, you know, I'll be loving you still
The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinkin' about the love that we had
And I'm missing you and nobody knows it but me

The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinkin' about the love that we had
Nobody knows it but me


This song has been done by a few folks but noone sings it like Kevin Sharpe.
I honestly believe this song was wriiten by a man about a man.
If not, it shoulda been!

I'm gonna listen today to it!

Here is a song I listen to every day now, while the Iraq funding bill rages on. There have been war protesters in downtown Denver lately. I think of this as a message from Jack.

Brothers in Arms

These mist covered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home is the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

Now the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms

(Mark Knopfler)

Tonite on my way home I just wandered around aimlessly for a couple of hours and then slowly found my way home. There was no one there, and I sat down on my deck and started listening to Pat Metheney on BBM Radio 1. I thought of Jack, always wandering between Texas and Wyoming, and I thought of this song:

All the Roadrunning (sung by Mark Knoppfler and Emmylou Harris, words by Mark Knoppfler)

A million miles our vagabond heels
Clocked up beneath the clouds
They're counting down to show time
When we do it for real with the crowds
Air miles are owing
But they don't come for free
And they don't give you any for pain

But if it's all for nothing
All the roadrunning's
Been in vain

The rimshots come down like cannon fire
And thunder off the wall
There's a man in every corner
And each one is giving his all

This is my fife
This is my drum
So you never will hear me complain

And if it's all for nothing
All the roadrunning's
Been in vain

All the roadrunning
All the roadrunning

Well if you're inclined
To go up on the wall
It can only be fast and high
And those who don't like the danger
Soon find something different to try
When there's only a ringin' in your ears
And an echo down memory lane

But if it's all for nothing
All the roadrunning's
Been in vain

All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning

The show's packing up
I sit and watch the convoy
Leaving town
There's no pretending I'm not a fool,
For riding around and around
Like the pictures you keep of your old wall of death
You showed me one time on the plane

But if it's all for nothing
All the roadrunning's
Been in vain

A million miles of vagabond sky
Clocked up above the clouds
I'm still your man for the roaming
For as long as there's roamin' allowed

There'll be a rider
And there'll be a wall
As long as the dreamer remains

And if it's all for nothing
All the roadrunning's
Been in vain

All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning
All the roadrunning, all the roadrunning

My Lovely Man by RHCP

I used to shout
Across the room to you
And you'd come dancin'
Like a fool
Shuffle step
You funky mother
Come to me
All warm as covers

Rest with me
My lovely brother
For you see
There is no other
Memory so sad and sweet
I'll see you soon
Save me a seat

Well I'm cryin'
Now my lovely man
Yes I'm cryin'
Now and no one can
Ever fill the
The hole you left my man
I'll see you later
My lovely man if I can

In my room
I'm all alone
Waiting for you
To get home
Listen to roberta flack
But I know you won't come back

Well I'm cryin'
Now my lovely man
I'll see you later
My lovely man if I can

Just in case
You never knew
I miss you slim
I love you too
See my heart
It's black and blue
When I die
I will find you

Well I'm cryin'
Now my lovely man
Yes I'm cryin'
Now and no one can
Ever fill the
The hole you left my man
I'll see you later
My lovely man if I can

Well I'm cryin'
My lovely man
Well I'm cryin'
My lovely man
I'll see you later
My lovely man
We have some good time
My lovely man

Here's another song that kind of reminds me of the boys.
They never said the words but knew just the same.

More Than Words:

Saying I love you
Is not the words I want to hear from you
It's not that I want you
Not to say, but if you only knew
How easy it would be to show me how you feel
More than words is all you have to do to make it real
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me
Cos I'd already know
 
What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying I love you
 
More than words
 
Now I've tried to talk to you and make you understand
All you have to do is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands and touch me
Hold me close don't ever let me go
More than words is all I ever needed you to show
Then you wouldn't have to say that you love me
Cos I'd already know
 
What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying I love you
 
More than words

Ok, I'm on a roll...


This song reminds me of Ennis, so afraid to let it show.

 Can't Fight This Feeling


I can't fight this feeling any longer
And yet i'm still afraid to let it flow
What started out as friendship, has grown stronger
I only wish i had the strength to let it show

I tell myself that i can't hold out forever
I said there is no reason for my fear
Cause i feel so secure when we're together
You give my life direction
You make everything so clear


And even as i wander
I'm keeping you in sight
You're a candle in the window
On a cold, dark winter's night
And i'm getting closer than i ever thought i might

And i can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what i started fighting for
It's time to bring this ship into the shore
And throw away the oars, forever

Cause i can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what i started fighting for
And if i have to crawl upon the floor
Come crashing through your door
Baby, i can't fight this feeling anymore

My life has been such a whirlwind since i saw you
I've been running round in circles in my mind
And it always seems that i'm following you,
Cause you take me to the places that alone i'd never find

And even as i wander i'm keeping you in sight
You're a candle in the window on a cold, dark winter's night
And i'm getting closer than i ever thought i might

And i can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what i started fighting for
It's time to bring this ship into the shore
And throw away the oars, forever


Cause i can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what i started fighting for
And if i have to crawl upon the floor
Come crushing through your door
Baby, i can't fight this feeling anymore.

Do you guys remember this oldie? Was it the 80's?

The Motels - Suddenly last summer
 
It happened one summer
It happened one time
It happened forever
For a short time
A place for a moment
An end to a dream
Forever I loved you
Forever it seemed

One summer never ends
One summer never began
It keeps me standing still
It takes all my will
And then suddenly
Last summer

Sometimes I never leave
But sometimes I would
Sometimes I stay too long
Sometimes I would
Sometimes it frightens me
Sometimes it would
Sometimes I'm all alone
And wish that I could

One summer never ends
One summer never begins
It keeps me standing still
It takes all my will
And then suddenly
Last summer
And then suddenly
Last summer

[Instrumental Interlude]

One summer never ends
One summer never begins
It keeps me standing still
It takes all my will
And then suddenly
Last summer
And then suddenly
Last summer
Until suddenly
Last Summer

And then suddenly
Last summer
Until suddenly
Last Summer

I found this one and it really reminds me of Ennis.
What do y'all think

I Wish that I Were You

Time goes by, I fall out of touch
I can't explain why I fall so much
I bought a pack of cigarettes
Sent an old Elvis stamp to your new address
The weather's here
Wish I was fine
Wish that you could read between the lines

You dream in colors
My night comes in black and blue
I'll send a postcard
Oh, how I wish that I were you

I am nothing, you are more
Than flesh and blood
A golden door
Let me come inside of you
Let me do the things I wanna do
Take me down to where you live
Take the things I cannot give

'Cause you dream in colors
My night comes in black and blue
I'll send a postcard
Oh, how I wish that I were you.

(Bridge)
You are like the ocean
I'm a river that's run dry
If you cannot reach me
All my wild flowers they will die

Take me down to where you live
Take the things I cannot give.

You dream in colors
My night comes in black and blue
I'll send a postcard
Oh, how I wish that I were you.

STOCKTON GALA DAYS
Natalie Merchant/ Christian Burial Music © 1992

that summer fields grew high
with foxglove stalks and ivy
wild apple blossoms everywhere
emerald green like none I have seen
apart from dreams that escape me
there was no boy as warm as you

how I've learned to please
to doubt myself in need
you'll never, you'll never know

that summer fields grow high
we made garland crowns in hiding
pulled stems of flowers from my hair
blue in the stream like none I have seen
apart from dreams that escape me
there was no *boy as bold as you

how I've learned to please
to doubt myself in need
you'll never, you'll never know
you'll never know...
 violet  serene like none I have seen
apart from dreams that escape me
there was no boy as warm as you
how I've learned to please
to doubt myself in need
you'll never, you'll never know
you'll never know...

that summer fields grow high
we had wildflower fever
we had to lay down where they grow
how I've learned to hide, how I've locked inside
you'd be surprised if shown
but you'll never, you'll never know 

*In the original song it's girl not boy.
The song as it's sung wouldn't work but change one little word and what a difference it makes!

power of two
now the parking lot is empty everyone's gone someplace i pick you up and in the trunk i've packed a cooler and a 2 day suitcase cause there's a place we like to drive way out in the country live miles out of the city limit we're singing and your hand's upon my knee so we're okay we're fine baby i'm here to stop your crying chase all the ghosts from your head i'm stronger than the monster beneath your bed smarter than the tricks played on your heart we'll look at them together then we'll take them apart adding up the total of a love that's true multiply life by the power of two you know the things that i am afraid of i'm not afraid to tell and if we'd ever leave a legacy it's that we loved each other well i've seen the shadows of so many people trying on the treasures of youth a road that fancy and fast ends in a fatal crash and i'm glad we got off to tell you the truth cause we're okay we're fine baby i'm here to stop your crying chase all the ghosts from your head i'm stronger than the monster beneath your bed smarter than the tricks played on your heart we'll look at them together then we'll take them apart adding up the total of a love that's true multiply life by the power of two all the shiny little trinkets of temptation (make new friends) something new instead of something old (but keep the old) all you gotta do is scratch beneath the surface (and remember what is gold) and it's fools gold fools gold fools gold (what is gold what is gold) and now we're talking about a difficult thing and your eyes are getting wet but i took us for better and i took us for worse and don't you ever forget it is the steel bars between me and a promise suddenly bend with ease and the closer i'm bound in love to you the closer i am to free so we're okay we're fine baby i'm here to stop your crying chase all the ghosts from your head i'm stronger than the monster beneath your bed smarter than the tricks played on your heart we'll look at them together then we'll take ‘em apart adding up the total of a love that's true multiply life by the power of two

This song is by the Indigo Girls. They are awsome.
Not only are they a great singing duo they are also Lesbian's who are partners!

Hi Loneleeb,

I LOVE the Indigo Girls!  I saw them several years ago at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham, they were the support act for 10,000 Maniacs (that was one good concert!!!)

My favourite song is Southlands in the Springtime!



Susie xox  8)

Thats awesome Susie!
Thats a great song.
They are from here where I live. I used to go see them at a local bar before they got famous.
Atlanta has a great music scene. If you like the girls, you'll probably like Michelle Malone.
She's another local favorite. She opened for the girls a lot here locally but she never got the exposure that the girls got. I think it's a shame cause she is just as good. The good thing is we can still see her play locally!  ;D

This one's probably been done before but whenever I hear "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol I can't help but think of Ennis. I picture him in his trailer, alone, lying on his bed, yearning for that sweet life:

Yep, it's done before... BUT.... it can never be done enough, because it is one of the most beautiful Jack and Ennis songs! :D

Thanks for posting it! I loooooove the lyrics, especially...

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes
They're all I can see

How perfect is that?

I also love the other song by Snow Patrol: Run.

When I get home I am gonna download Rascall Flatts: "What Hurts the Most". Thanks for that!

Yes I totally agree that Chasing Cars is a top BBM song.  I went through a phase a while ago where it would never fail to make me blub.

I never knew that about the Indigo Girls even though I'd heard of them.  Thanks for educating me!

I heard the Stone Ponies on the playlist today so that one has definitely been added.  Eric is very secretive about his updates!!

Am I The Only One (Whose Ever Felt This Way)
Maria McKee


There Is No Good Reason
I Should Have To Be So Alone
I'm Smothered By This Emptiness
Lord I Wish I Was Made Of Stone
Like I Fool I Lent My Soul To Love
And It Paid Me Back In Change
God Help Me
Am I The Only One Who's Ever Felt This Way?


A Heart That's Worn And Weathered
Would Know Better Than To Fight
But I Wore Mine Like A Weapon
Played Out Love Like A Crime
And It Wrung Me Out And Strung Me Out
And It Hung Years On My Face
God Help Me
Am I The Only One Who's Ever Felt This Way?


Now My Sense Of Humor Needs A Break
I See A Shadow In The Mirror
And He's Laughin' Through His Tears
One More Smile's All I Can Fake


There Is A Wound Inside Me
And It's Bleeding Like A Flood
There's Times When I See A Light Ahead
Hope Is Not Enough
As Another Night Surrounds Me
And It Pounds Me Like A Wave
God Help Me
Am I The Only One Who's Ever Felt This Way?

God Help Me
Am I The Only One Who's Ever Felt This Way?

Autum Leaves
Eva Cassidy

The falling leaves
Drift by my window.
The falling leaves of red and gold.

I see your lips,
the summer kisses,
the sunburned hands i used to hold.

Since you went away
the days grow long
And soon i'll hear old winter song
But i miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

Since you went away
the days grow long
And soon i'll hear old winter song
But i miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

This song was written by my fellow Geargia boy Johnny Mercer

There is no doubt in my mind about this suggestion and it may already be on the playlist:

In fact most songs on this CD are worthy of being on the playlist, in particular besides the above, What The World Needs, Heaven Help Me and Flies On The Butter.

The Heart Won't Lie

Composed by Kim Carnes and Donna Weiss
Performed by Vince Gill & Reba McEntire (from "It's Your Call" - Reba's album - 1993)

Looking back over the years
Of all the things I've always meant to say
But the words didn't come easily
So many times through empty fears
Of all the nights I tried to pick up the phone
So scared of who might be answering

You try to live your life from day to day
But seeing you across the room tonight
Just gives me away

Chorus:
Cause the heart won't lie
Sometimes life gets in the way
But there's one thing that won't change
I know I've tried
The heart won't lie
You can live your alibi
Who can see you're lost inside a foolish disguise
The heart won't lie

Long after tonight
Will you still hear my voice through the radio
Old desires make us act carelessly
Long after tonight, after the fire
After the scattered ashes fly
Through the four winds blown and gone
Will you come back to me

You try to love your life from day to day
But seeing you across the room tonight
Just gives me away

Cause the heart won't lie
Sometimes life gets in the way
But there's one thing that won't change
I know I've tried
The heart won't lie
You can live your alibi
Who can see you're lost inside a foolish disguise
The heart won't lie

We had Celine on the radio station before, and she was shot down, no, she was tied to a wall and pummelled with rocks!  Somehow Brokeback and Celine didn't go together from the listeners that gave feedback..


Is Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" on the playlist?

I've toy'd with putting this on, but I'm fearful people always associate this song with Whitney now.  What do you guys think?

Céline gets lotsa regular air play. I'd shoot her down in a NewYork minute.

Same problem with Dolly's "I Will Always Love You" - sounds WAY too whinny (not a typo!)

With regards ta the Foreigner #1 hit single - try it - don't know Wynonna's version, so I can't comment

S'cuse me - gotta go - you're playin Gord's "If You Could Read my Mind!"

More suggestions hun? well, Since "Bookends" by Simon & Garfunkel is so successful, maybe it's time to look again at my most favourite of all Simon & Garfunkel songs "The Boxer"  ;)

Also a couple a Olivia Newton-John offerings: "Please Mr. Please" and "Have You Never Been Mellow" - may not be for the lyrics, but for the mood - and that line "Have you never let someone else be strong" always still gets to me.

Well you do have a lot more room, and for the last two months you've been adding mostry country songs, so I thought I'd try easy listening suggestions instead.
Title: Re: Song Suggestions for BBM Radio!!

I would have to vote no for Celine and Dolly!
I love the lyrics of I Will Always Love You but I agree withthe Sheriff!
As far as Foreigner or Wynonna, I think Wynonna would be a better fit but I think thats just the kesser of two evils.
IMHO, I like the feel of the station now (country and instumentals) I think putting in pop or easylistening type of music would change the feel too much.
 But, thats just me.

Lyrics for: Moonshadow   by Cat Stephens
 
Oh, I'm being followed by a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow
Leapin and hoppin' on a moonshadow, moonshadow, moonshadow

And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,
Oh if I ever lose my hands, oh if.... I won't have to work no more.
And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry,
Yes if I ever lose my eyes, oh if.... I won't have to cry no more.

And if I ever lose my legs, I won't moan, and I won't beg,
Yes if I ever lose my legs, oh if.... I won't have to walk no more.
And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south,
Yes if I ever lose my mouth, oh if.... I won't have to talk...

Did it take long to find me? I asked the faithful light.
Did it take long to find me? And are you gonna stay the night?


  heres a song that i have always loved.  Used to have all his albums.. But i guess he is a terrorist these days
  I cant believe how our world has turned.
   This reminds me of Jack

How about:  Kiss the Dirt (Falling Down the Mountain) by INXS?

Playing in the dirt
We find the seeds of doubt
Don't water them with your tears
Don't think about all the years
You'd rather be without

Eden lets me in
I find the seeds of love
And climb upon the highwire
I kiss and tell all my fears

Falling down the mountain
End up kissing dirt
Look a little closer
Sometimes it wouldn't hurt

Playing in the dirt
We find the seeds of fun
And we scream like alleycats
Tearing down what we attack
To prove that we are one

Cutting through the night
And we find the seeds of lust
And lose our minds on one intent
These passions never seem to end

I'd have to say no to Celine too unfortunately  - the song's sentiment is in the right vein, but a litte too sugary & of course it comes with all the baggage associated with Titanic.

I like the idea of INXS though.

We had Celine on the radio station before, and she was shot down, no, she was tied to a wall and pummelled with rocks!  Somehow Brokeback and Celine didn't go together from the listeners that gave feedback..


I've toy'd with putting this on, but I'm fearful people always associate this song with Whitney now.  What do you guys think?


NO Celine.  YES Dolly.

Update: I was reminded to make it clear that this is just little ole me talkin' here.  Not admin.  I forget to say that.  An admin decreeing NO this and YES that would sound pretty obnoxious.  I'm not decreeing, I'm whining.  :)

A reminder that I can usually find virtually any song out there because of my access to radio format libraries, so if there is a song desired that wasn't added because it couldn't be found, I just need to be contacted and I can usually find it.

Nobody's Home

by Clint Black


Move slowly to my dresser drawers
Put my blue jeans on
Find my cowboy boots, my button down
Strap my timepiece on my arm
Grab my billfold, my pocket change
Just a mindless old routine
Then its out the door and down the street
But its not really me
I still comb my hair the same
Still like the same cologne
And I still drive that pickup truck
That the same old bank still owns
But since you left, everybody says
Im not the guy theyve known
The lights are on, but nobodys home
Cup of coffee in the morning
Just food for the brain
But Ive been numb since our last goodbye
I havent felt a thing
But now theres pains in my head
And pains in my chestand I think Im losing my hair
Im a half a man with half a mind
To think you didnt care
Repeat chorus

 Here's another Crint Brack song I love

State of Mind

Got a big leather suitcase, all I own's inside
Seems I've been walkin' for days, can't even bum a ride
Try steppin' to a tune, with the rhythm of a walkin' man
Mind drifts like a big balloon out of my situation at hand

Ain't it funny how a melody can bring back a memory
Take you to another place in time
Completely change your state of mind
Walkin' down a lonely highway not feelin' alone

Thinkin' back when things went my way and not the road I'm on
Well, I've been down a time or two, but it never lasted long
I can always make it through on a wing and a prayer and a song

Ain't it funny how a melody can bring back a memory
Take you to another place in time
Completely change your state of mind
It can make a right from a wrong, it can make you fall in love
It can get you singin' along
Chase the clouds away and make the sun shine above
A melody can bring back a memory
Take you to another place in time
Completely change your state of mind
A melody can bring back a memory
Take you to another place in time
Completely change your state of mind

This Garth song has special meaning to me!
It reminds me of someone I love!

A new way to fly



Like birds on a high line
They line up at night time at the bar
They all once were lovebirds
Now bluebirds are all that they are
They landed in hell
The minute they fell from love's sky
And now they hope in the wine
That they'll find a new way to fly

A new way to fly
Far away from goodbye
Above the clouds and the rain
The memories and the pain
And the tears that they cry
Now the lessons been learned
They've all crashed and burned
But they can leave it behind
If they could just find
A new way to fly

By the end of the night
They'll be high as a kite once again
And they don't seem to mind all the time
Or the money they spend
It's a high price to pay
to just find a way to get by
But it's worth every dime
If they find a new way to fly

A new way to fly
Far away from goodbye
Above the clouds and the rain
The memories and the pain
And the tears that they cry
Now the lessons been learned
They've all crashed and burned
But they can leave it behind
If they could just find
A new way to fly

They'll leave it behind
As soon as they find
A new way to fly

Thank you for BBM Radio, I love what I've heard of it.

Do we have anything by The Mavericks on BBM radio?  "Dream River", "To Be With  You", and "I've Got This Feeling" from "Trampoline" really remind me of our beautiful boys.  Not that just about any song I hear doesn't! ;)   

"To Be With  You" especially reminds me of when Ennis received the first postcard from Jack.  Raul Malo has a big, dramatic "Roy Orbison" style voice, and it's in keeping with the country theme of BBM radio.  It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it certainly is mine!

Also "You're Gone" by Diamond Rio reminds me of our boys too.

Thanks!

Post by: Marina on June 14, 2007, 07:22:21 am
I so agree!  I swoon over Raul's voice too.  I haven't heard "In My Dreams", but I'll give it a listen.  I love the lyrics.  You're right, Raul does have that "cry" in his voice, like Patsy Cline ("Sweet Dreams of You" - should be titled "I Wish I Knew How To Quit You") and Roy Orbison.  I also agree about Patsy Cline and Cyndi Lauper's version of "I Drove All Night" (should be titled "I Redlined It All The Way").  She captures the emotion best in her version, I think.  :)

Hey all,

I would like to add another one of my all-time favorite Springsteen songs:

Blood Brothers - Bruce Springsteen

We played king of the mountain out on the end
The world come chargin' up the hill, and we were women and men
Now there's so much that time, time and memory fade away
We got our own roads to ride and chances we gotta take
We stood side by side each one fightin' for the other
We said until we died we'd always be blood brothers

Now the hardness of this world slowly grinds your dreams away
Makin' a fool's joke out of the promises we make
And what once seemed black and white turns to so many shades of gray
We lose ourselves in work to do and bills to pay
And it's a ride, ride, ride, and there ain't much cover
With no one runnin' by your side my blood brother

On through the houses of the dead past those fallen in their tracks
Always movin' ahead and never lookin' back
Now I don't know how I feel, I don't know how I feel tonight
If I've fallen 'neath the wheel, if I've lost or I've gained sight
I don't even know why, I don't why I made this call
Or if any of this matters anymore after all

But the stars are burnin' bright like some mystery uncovered
I'll keep movin' through the dark with you in my heart
My blood brother

I heard this being sung on the radio this morning by Otis Redding and I thought it was such a perfect song for Jack to sing to Ennis.

I've been loving you too long to stop now

There were time and you wanted to be free
My love is growing stronger, as you become a habit to me
Oh I've been loving you a little too long
I dont wanna stop now, oh
With you my life,
Has been so wonderful
I can't stop now

There were times and your love is growing cold
My love is growing stronger as our affair grows old
I've been loving you a little too long, long,
I don't want to stop now
oh, oh, oh
I've been loving you a little bit too long
I don't wanna stop now
No, no, no

Don't make me stop now
No baby
I'm down on my knees Please, don't make me stop now
I love you, I love you,
I love you with all of my heart
And I can't stop now
Don't make me stop now
Please, please don't make me stop now
Good god almighty I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you
I love you in so many different ways...
I love you in so many different ways....

Here are some good ones from Mary Chapin Carpenter:

Come On Home

Slowly as you look at me
In your eyes I can't believe
All the love I'm seeing now
Plain as day to me somehow
Oh, love, come on home

Promises a heart can keep
Happiness is you and me
Never was a dream so right
Love has finally come in sight
Oh, love, come on home

You fit into my life and
You seem so right like someone planned it
You give yourself to me and
You give so easily, seems like you always understand

Everything says you are the one
Time is shining like the sun
Telling my heart what to say
Growing old with you someday
Oh, love, come on home....

All the words don't match but ya gotta love a song about an old shirt

This Shirt
(Mary Chapin Carpenter)

This shirt is old and faded
All the color's washed away
I've had it now for more damn years
Than I can count anyway
I wear it beneath my jacket
With the collar turned up high
So old  I should replace it
But I'm not about to try

This shirt's got silver buttons
And a place upon the sleeve
Where I used to set my heart up
Right there anyone could see
This shirt is the one I wore to every boring high school dance
Where the boys ignored the girls
And we all pretended to like the band

This shirt was a pillow for my head
On a train through Italy
This shirt was a blanket beneath the love
We made in Argeles
This shirt was lost for three whole days
In a town near Buffalo
'Till I found the locker key
In a downtown Trailways bus depot

This shirt was the one I lent you
And when you gave it back
There was a rip inside the sleeve
Where you rolled your cigarettes
It was the place I put my heart
Now look at where you put a tear
I forgave your thoughtlessness
But not the boy who put it there

This shirt was the place your cat
Decided to give birth to five
And we stayed up all night watching
And we wept when the last one died
This shirt is just an old faded piece of cotton
Shining like the memories
Inside those silver buttons

This shirt is a grand old relic
With a grand old history
I wear it now for Sunday chores
Cleaning house and raking leaves
I wear it beneath my jacket
With the collar turned up high
So old I should replace it
But I'm not about to try

Can't Take Love For Granted
(Mary Chapin Carpenter)

When I spoke what was on my mind
I wasn’t thinking of your heart
I wasn’t thinking bout the things I said
That landed us so far apart
And now my world is ending baby
With a chance remark
No, you can’t take love for granted

You look at me with your wounded eyes
And I look back with fear
There used to be such faith between us, now, darlin'
Now it’s just not here
And the door was slammed hours ago
But it’s still ringing in my ears
No, you can’t take love for granted

It was a funny way to show I love you
A funny way to care
It’s a funny thing to be without you
As empty as your stare

You can’t take love for granted
It’s got its own free will
It’s got a mind of its own when it wants one, baby
And looks that can kill
One day you’re in heaven darling
The next you feel like hell
No, you can’t take love for granted

You can speak what’s on your mind
If you’ve got a gambler’s heart
You can be the truth incarnate
You can shoot straight in the dark
You can pull the moon down baby
With a lasso made of stars
But no, you can’t take love for granted
No, you can’t take love for granted no
Baby, don't take love for granted

Don't mean to be a hog, but I had to post this one. It really remined me of what Jack might say to Ennis:

The Hard Way
(Mary Chapin Carpenter)

Show a little inspiration, show a little spark
And show that things that drew me to you and stole my heart
And tell me something I don't know instead of everything I do
And look at me as if I mean something to you
Our hearts are beating while we sleep, but while we're wide awake
You know the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way

Show a little passion, baby, show a little style
And show the knack for knowing when and the gift for knowing how
And have a little trust in us when fear obscures the path
You know we got this far, darling, not by luck, but by never turning back
Some will call on destiny, but I just call on faith
That the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, to what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way

Caught up in our little lives, there's not a lot left over
I see what's missing in your eyes; you're searching for that field of clover
So show a little inspiration, show a little spark
Show the world a little light when you show it your heart
We've got two lives, one we're given and the other one we make
And the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard (everything we got, we got the hard way)
Everything we got, we got the hard way
(Because the world won't stop)  hang on, baby...

As far as I know, I have never heard 90% of the songs you all suggest.  Thanks for opening up my musical education. 

I agree with being very judicious about adding "off-musical-genre" songs (even though I am more likely to know those non-country songs).

Howdy everybody!

Now this is what I'm talkin' about.  Great to see lively discussion. Thank you thank you thank you so much for all of the feedback and the suggestions.   :D   If you don't tell me what you want to or don't want to hear, I'm kinda in the dark when programming the station.

On Sunday we increased the amount of songs we're able to have playing on the station.  I added over 40+ new songs taken straight from your suggestions, and I also brought back a few songs that had aired on the station previously, but were taken off for one reason or another.  I thought I'd give those songs a second chance with the new wave of listeners we have now a days.

I'll be fine tuning the station over the next couple a weeks, watching closely the thumbs up and thumbs down votes, etc, and taking in consideration your feedback here as well.  Please keep the feedback and the suggestions coming.   :D

Also, if anyone ever notices any problems with the tracks themselves (i.e. volume of the track too loud or too quiet, etc.) please let me know that as well so I can fix it.  Thanks.

Keep listenin'    :D

My favorite Patty Smyth song is from her days with Scandal, "Hands Tied."  I've always thought it could be about a couple of gay guys and think it might fit on the station. 

Darling, darling, darling,
I`ll never understand
How sometimes just the way you look at me
Can tear my heart, but then again

Darling, darling, darling
Don`t look across the room
Cuz you might catch me looking at you
Should we know what to say or what to do

So hold on
Don`t turn away
There must be a hundred things
We forgot to say

How can we touch
With our hands tied
When only you know how much
You keep me satisfied
How can we explain
This ball of flame
Locked up inside
With our hands tied?

Darling, darling, darling
If you think this love is blind
Just remember
Each time you squeeze her hand you crush my heart
Oh and you just could be driving me out of my mind

Darling, darling, darling
I`ll never let it show
But as long as you go on leaving me
I`ll just fall apart each time you go

So hold on
Don`t take my heart away
She may be one good reason to leave
But I`m a hundred reasons to stay

How can we touch
With our hands tied
When only you know how much
You keep me satisfied
How can we explain
This ball of flame
Locked up inside
With our hands tied?


Whaddya think? 

Oh this is such a close one.  Almost fits perfectly.  But I'm on the fence about it.  Hmmm.  :-\

I put your other two suggestions on the station.  ;)  :D

Speaking of Roy, I'm not big on his version of "I Drove All Night."  I prefer Cyndi Lauper's.  Hell, I prefer Celine Dion's over Roy's (Don't throw stuff at me!).  But his "In Dreams" might sound good on the station. 

A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
Go to sleep. everything is all right.

I close my eyes, then I drift away
Into the magic night. I softly say
A silent prayerlike dreamers do.
Then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.

In dreams I walk with you. in dreams I talk to you.
In dreams youre mine. all of the time were together
In dreams, in dreams.

But just before the dawn, I awake and find you gone.
I cant help it, I cant help it, if I cry.
I remember that you said goodbye.

Its too bad that all these things, can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams in beautiful dreams.


I will never be able to get past this being in the movie Blue Velvet.  :laugh:

What do y'all think of "Danny Boy"?

Pick an artist:
Johnny Cash
Willie Nelson
Charley Pride
(or many others)

Here are the lyrics:

Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling,
From glen to glen and down the mountain side;
The summer's gone, and all the roses falling;
It's you, it's you must go, and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer's in the meadow,
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow;
I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow;
Danny boy, Oh Danny boy, I love you so.

But if you come and all the flowers are dying,
If I am dead, as dead I well may be.
You'll come and find the place where I am lying,
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.

And I will know, 'though soft ye tread around me,
And then my grave shall richer sweeter be,
Then you'll bend down and tell me that you love me,
And I shall rest in peace until you come to me.

          Oh ok i play nice.. i never ask to have songs removed from the list even though i dont like them...Simply because i figure others do like them.. But if you want to play that game. i can too.......... :-\.

           Oh yes Eric i think it fits very well..  But i will have to lay in a new supply of tissues...That song always has made me cry.  Ever since i first heard it as a child...

RE:  Voting
Yes please do vote "Thumbs Up" or "Thumbs Down" as often as you like whenever you hear your favorite or not so favorite songs.  The votes are only tallied for the last 30 days and on a 30 day rotation.  So if you voted for a song in March, it no longer counts.


BTW:  The DJ knows who likes what, and who suggested or commented on which songs.  The DJ also knows what songs had high "Thumbs Up" counts in the past, and suddenly have lots of "Thumbs Down" votes, and it's all relative and taken into consideration.  The DJ also sees when folks tune in and tune out during the day and during which songs.  The DJ is watching....  ;D  ;)

Question for you  Eric - if there is a song you really can't stand would you still put it on the playlist if someone suggested it?  ie not let personal views colour your DJ skills

"Danny Boy" is a strange one for me.  In the UK it's got a reputation as being the sort of song drunk people sing down the pub or at gatherings towards the end of evening when it all starts going a bit silly! I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing but it takes out any meaning for me, even the version by the fabulous Mr Cash.

Yes, there are songs I personally don't care for that folks have requested, and I've put them on the air.  Those songs go on to be quite favorites among the listeners, even though I personally don't care for it.  That's also one of the reasons we have these 'feedback forums' so you can tell me what you guys want to hear on the station.   :D

Thanks Eric.  Very professional  :)   But you've gone and done it now - putting a dance remix back on the playlist  :o Could be a tad controversial! For the record (no pun intended!), I like it for a bit of variety.

If you ever have need of any more instrumentals, a CD I listen to day and nite is Yo-Yo Ma Plays Ennio Morricone. I especially like Track 11, Sergio Leone Suite: Once Upon a Time in the West (Main Theme).

Yes, thanks, Eric. 

I was wondering if any of the dance mixes were included in the re-adds Eric did.  Lo and behold, I heard one earlier today.  To my utter shock and surprise, I didn't cringe or tense up or weep or gnash my teeth.  I actually liked it!  I clicked thumbs up on it!  I couldn't believe it.  I had to lie down for a few minutes with a cool cloth on my forehead. 

Also, I think you made a good choice of "Danny Boy" artist to play.

Just saw a montage tribute to BBM video with Rod Stewart singing this song.

Am thinking it might belong on our radio station (maybe not rod stewart, but dan hill's version)

Sometimes When We Touch - Dan Hill

You ask me if I love you
And I choke on my reply
I'd rather hurt you honestly
Than mislead you with a lie
And who am I to judge you
On what you say or do?
I'm only just beginning to see the real you

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides

Romance and all its strategy
Leaves me battling with my pride
But through the insecurity
Some tenderness survives
I'm just another writer
Still trapped within my truth
A hesitant prize fighter
Still trapped within my youth

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides

At times I'd like to break you
And drive you to your knees
At times I'd like to break through
And hold you endlessly

At times I understand you
And I know how hard you've tried
I've watched while love commands you
And I've watched love pass you by

At times I think we're drifters
Still searching for a friend
A brother or a sister
But then the passion flares again

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides


what'a ya think about this one?

Here's a song from The Traveling Wilburys that reminds me very much of Ennis. It was written by George Harrison.

Handle With Care

Been beat up and battered 'round
Been sent up, and I've been shot down
You're the best thing that I've ever found
Handle me with care

Reputations changeable
Situations tolerable
Baby, you're adorable
Handle me with care

(Chorus)
I'm so tired of being lonely
I still have some love to give
Won't you show me that you really care

(Bridge)
Everybody's got somebody to lean on
Put your body next to mine, and dream on

I've been fobbed off, and I've been fooled
I've been robbed and ridiculed
In day care centers and night schools
Handle me with care

Been stuck in airports, terrorized
Sent to meetings, hypnotized
Overexposed, commercialized
Hand me with care

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

I've been uptight and made a mess
But I'll clean it up myself, I guess
Oh, the sweet smell of success
Handle me with care

Eric,

Do you have anything by Alison Krauss on the playlist? I love her voice and the bluegrass songs!

Stay - Alison Krauss
Where have you been,
My long lost friend?
It's good to see you again.
Come and sit for a while
I've missed your smile
Today the past is goodbye.
Time can't erase
A lover's embrace.
Can't you hear it calling?
A new day dawning
You were longing to find.

Love's taken you far
Away from my heart,
And I've been here all alone.
Have your eyes failed to find
What took you from mine,
A vision that's faded through time?
But you sailed away,
A fine summer's day,
Cause you heard it calling,
A new day dawning,
You were longing to find.

There is a way to make you stay.
Darlin don't turn away
Don't doubt your heart
and keep us apart
I'm right where you are
Stay

There is a way to make you stay.
Darlin don't turn away.
Don't doubt your heart
and keep us apart
I'm right where you are
Stay.


Borderline Lyrics
 » Alison Krauss


So you're on your own lookin' down the road that goes only by one way
And you don't need the signs to see lonely still runs both ways
So who's the fool that would think the ties would be better off undone
Did your heart even warn you when you veered from the path that was narrower and straight

On the borderline
Somewhere between the flight for freedom
Feeling like you can't move on
The chore will be the time
Takes you off of my mind and out of my heart I know
And when you cross over there's no turning back
Once that burning bridge is gone

I may lose but I'm in it for the long run
Loving you for good reason could be the wrong one
I don't wanna lose control but the heart won't learn
To let it well enough for long

On the borderline
Somewhere between the flight for freedom
Feeling like you can't move on
The chore will be the time
Takes you off of my mind and out of my heart I know
And when you cross over there's no turning back
Once that burning bridge is gone


Doesn't Have To Be This Way Lyrics
 » Alison Krauss


Sometimes I wonder where you're coming from
When you roll in like thunder just to turn around and run
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay

You smell like moonlight and early morning rain
Pray til a fool but surrender to your pain
Or find a cure for your decay

You're at your best with an ache in your chest
And that worn out old song that you play
Only Jesus and you who long to teach us
Should know and be left to betray

I don't know the answer but I know who to blame
You can choose the dancer if you could choose the flame
I think you'll find they're one in the same
It doesn't have to be this way

I don't know the answer but I know who to blame
Pray til a fool but surrender to your pain
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay

Sometimes I wonder where you're coming from
When you roll in like thunder just to turn around and run
It's a good thing I don't need you to stay
It doesn't have to be this way


Forget About It Lyrics
 » Alison Krauss


Forget about it
I'm admittin' I was wrong
And I'll just take what's mine
And walk right out the door
Forget about it
I'll split and I'll be gone
And you'll have memories
You'll find hard to ignore
'Cause after all
I see you sometime
Maybe when I can't recall
How you drove me crazier
Forget about it
When forever's over
I won't remember how much
I loved you anymore
Forget about it
Put me out of your head
Now that you're free and easy
Out there on the town
Forget about it
When you're lying in bed just wishing
I was there to lay you down

'Cause after all
I see you sometime maybe
When you will recall
How I drove you crazier
Forget about those stars in your eyes
Laying by the fireside
Holding you tight
I can't remember when I felt so right
So just forget about it

I happen to love "Danny Boy", but Willi Nelson?  Ooh, I just heard it...don't like the fake-synth thing in the middle.  May I suggest another version?  Betty Buckley (who is a Texas gal, btw) does a pared-down version.  So does Carly Simon.

I have a suggestion:  I'm a huge fan of Chrissie Hynde.  Anyone remember this?

"I'll Stand by You"

Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don't be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
cause I've seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

So if you're mad, get mad
Don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I'm a lot like you
When you're standing at the crossroads
And don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
cause even if you're wrong

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you

And when...
When the night falls on you, baby
You're feeling all alone
You won't be on your own

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

Hey Eric,
 
      Here's one for ya....  The whole CD/soundtrack from Mark Twain, A Film by Ken Burns
is worth consideration.  There are mostly instrumentals pieces on it, but the music is very American, country, gentle, raucous, some traditional, guitar, piano, fiddles, harmonica, and to me, many would fit the mood and content of BBM Radio.  I got my copy on Amazon, but if you have a CD player or somethin' to listen to it on, I could bring it with me to Alberta.  Maybe you've heard it already since you listen to a lot of stuff like I do. 

I'm also glad to hear Joe Euro on BBM Radio.  He lives not far from my folks in Washington.

Cuts off the album I suggest are Howl, Wagoners' Lad, The Falls, Ties That Bind, Hard Times (either version) and a banjo/guitar cut of Swing Low Sweet Chariot.

OMG!!!!

I just found this song by Alison Krauss on Limewire! It's so beautiful, sung like a lullaby, and so right for our boys...


Alison Krauss - Scarlet tide

Well I recall his parting words
Must I accept his fate
Or take myself far from this place
I thought I heard a black bell toll
A little bird did sing
Man has no choice
When he wants every thing

We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride

Man goes beyond his own decision
Gets caught up in the mechanism
Of swindlers who act like kings
And brokers who break everything
The dark of night was swiftly fading
Close to the dawn of day
Why would I want him just to lose him again

We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride





Why would I want him just to lose him again.... :'( :'( :'(

I hear this one the other day and it made me think of Jack.
Sounds like somthing he's sing to Ennis

In My Life
The Beatles

There are places I'll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

This is one of the few Beatles songs I actually like!

I really don't understand how you could select to play her version over Gord's. She's hardly singing - she's trying to belt it out! dang offensive! "That's the best part a this song" Kris says at the end - I agree - the part where it's over! And I didn't think I disliked Dolly before, but  - just how many songs has she got on the roster? Six? Eight?

Gord's version is vastly superior to Dolly's (and a lot more satisfying than Janis too) - subdued and sensitive. PLEASE try it! At least remove Dolly's atrocious interpretation.

I understand you'll be gone for a while and I'll hold my comments any further until then.

P.S. Also heard Dan Hill's Sometimes When We Touch this morning. Nice. I just scrolled down this thread (to find conversations on Me & Bobby McGee) and discover that it (dan hill) was one a my suggestions. Thanks for that! I thumbed it up  when I heard it about an hour ago.

Maybe you have this one, but I just heard it on the country oldies station:

TILL THE RIVERS ALL RUN DRY

Till the rivers all run dry
Till the sun falls from the sky
Till life on earth is through
I’ll be needing you

I know sometimes you may wonder
From little things I say and do
But there’s no need for you to wonder
If I need you, ‘cause I’ll need you

Too many times I don’t tell you
Too many things get in the way
And even though sometimes I hurt you
Still you show me, in every way

Eric, do you already have something by Grant Lee Buffalo on the playlist? I was listening to their album Fuzzy the other day and the title song and another are good (I think...) contenders for your playlist:

Fuzzy - Grant Lee Buffalo
Bring me home
To this house of many days
Just lay me on the floor
Hard and cool as slate
You know I love it more and more
Than before I ran away
It triggers off so many hurts
Hurtful words and broken plates

I've been lied to
Now I'm Fuzzy
I've been lied to

All and all
The world is small enough for both of us
To meet upon the interstate
Waiting on a train
And just when those big arms lift up
Fall in love with no time to say it

And I would have liked to
Now I'm Fuzzy
I would have liked to
Now I'm Fuzzy
Fuzzy now

Here we are
In our car
Driving down the street
We're looking for a place to stop
Have a bite to eat
We hunger for a bit of faith
To replace the fear
We water like a dead bouquet
Does no good does it dear

And I've been lied to
Now I'm Fuzzy
We've been lied to
Now we're Fuzzy
Fuzzy now
Lied to




Hook - Grant Lee Buffalo
There's one thing I'll tell you friend
I don't believe in supermen
Who fly through the clouds
Above the rest
I don't believe
In the best
And I never wanted to fight with you
It's just the last thing
That I wanted to do
But you're so afraid
To look at love
You got to let it all go
This cut-above stuff

'Cause this is the hook
That drags you
This is the hook
In the crook of your neck
It's the hook
That snags you
This is the hook

And there's one thing I'll tell you friend
All of our trials are gonna come to an end
And you and I
We're gonna fall
Like we never stood on this little earth at all

And this is the hook that drags you
This is the hook
In the crook of your neck
It's the hook that snags you
This is the hook
In the crook of your neck
The hook that drags you
This is the hook

Hey all you music lovin' Brokies,

   I was listening to Pam Tillis' Super Hits Album today.  I'm a fan of Ms.Tillis, and it struck me that there are some great songs and some made me think of Brokeback Mt.  Songs like One of Those Things, Let That Pony Run, In Between Dances, A Whisper and A Scream, Jagged Hearts...  The whole album is really fine.

   Eric, you oughta give it a listen and see if you feel the same way about any of those songs.  All are excellent, but you might feel one or two is better for the radio.

Those are my suggestions for today...  Hey, and I heard Wagoner's Lad off the Mark Twain Album on there today... Thanks for putting that on man! 

Yours truly,
Rayn

I'm not a huge fan of Gordon Lightfoot.  "Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald" used to scare me when I was a kid (but so did "Stairway to Heaven," "Honey," and "Love Rollercoaster.").  He's got a great voice, but I don't always like his song selections. 

However, he does an interesting version of "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."  It's folky and very different sounding from the Roberta Flack/Stereophonics version.  Peter, Paul, and Mary do a version similar to Lightfoot's. 

Because of the differences, I don't think it would take anything away from either version if both were played on the station. 

Yeah, he does have a great voice doesn't he? I am a huge fan, have been since I was very little, we always played his music and even before I could speak English (I am Dutch), I could sing along with his songs!

I saw him in concert in April of this year in New Jersey and got to meet him after the show, it was incredible!

I'd like to suggest including some songs from husky-voiced gay icon, Dusty Springfield.

She has a deep, soulful voice that I think would be in keeping with the mood of Brokeback Mountain radio, and her songs address universal gay themes of unrequited love and love lost. Themes that Jack and Ennis could relate to.

Go here to read all the lyrics:

http://www.stlyrics.com/songs/d/dustyspringfield1296.html

Here are the lyrics of a couple of my favourite Dusty Springfield songs:

“I only want to be with you”

I don't know what it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never want to let you go
'Cause you've started something
Oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met
You've had a hold on me
It happens to be true
I only want to be with you

It doesn't matter where you go or what you do
I want to spend each moment of the day with you
Oh, look what has happened with just one kiss
I never knew that I could be in love like this
It's crazy but it's true
I only want to be with you

You stopped and smiled at me
And asked if I'd care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a chance
Now listen honey
I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you've started something
Oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met
You've had a hold on me
No matter what you do
I only want to be with you

Oh, oh, you stopped and you smiled at me
And asked if I'd care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a chance
Now hear me tell you
I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you've started something
Oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met
You've had a hold on me
No matter what you do
I only want to be with you
I said no matter, no matter what you do
I only want to be with you

“I just don’t know what to do with myself”

I just don't know what to do with myself
Don't know just what to do with myself
I'm so used to doing everything with you
Planning everything for two
And now that we're through

I just don't know what to do with my time
I'm so lonesome for you it's a crime
Going to the movie only makes me sad
Parties make me feel as bad
When I'm not with you
I just don't know what to do

Like a summer rose
It needs the sun and rain
Oh, I need your sweet love
To beat all the pain

I just don't know what to do with myself
I just don't know what to do with myself
Baby, if your new love ever turns you down
Come back, I will be around
Just waiting for you
I don't know what else to do

Like a summer rose
It needs the sun and rain
Oh, I need your sweet love
To beat all the pain

I don't know just what to do with myself
I don't know just what to do with myself
Baby, if your new love ever turns you down
Come on back, I will be around
Just waiting for you
I don't know what else to do, no, no, no
I don't know what else to do
I'm still so crazy for you, no, no, no, no
I don't know what else to do, no, no, no
I'm still so crazy for you

“Stay awhile”

Stay awhile, let me hold you
Stay awhile, 'til I've told you, oh, oh
Of the love that I feel tonight, oh yeah

Stay awhile, what's your hurry?
Stay awhile, 'cause I worry, oh
Any time that you're out of sight

I hate to see you go
Tell you what I'll do
I'll be good to you
I'll make you glad that you are mine
So come on baby

Treat me right, must you run now?
For the night's just begun now, oh
Honey please, won't you stay awhile with me?, oh yeah, yeah

Oh, I hate to see you go
Tell you what I'll do
I'll be good to you
I'll make you glad that you are mine
So come on baby

Treat me right, must you run now?
For the night's just begun now, oh
Honey please, won't you stay awhile with me?, oh yeah, yeah
Stay awhile with me.

I think he would do a great job at telling this story! I bet this is the same as with BBM, he passed it on, and then will come back to it years later asking everybody if it had already been made and if he could do it!

Let it go
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Don't you know
The hardest part is over
Let it in
Let your clarity define you
In the end
You will only just remember how it feels

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away,
But these small hours
These small hours
Still remain

Let it slide
Let your troubles fall behind you
Let it shine,
Till you feel it all around you
And I don't mind
If it's me you need to turn to
We'll get by
It's the heart that really matters in the end

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists and turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These small hours
Still remain

All of my regret
Will wash away somehow
But I cannot forget
the way I feel right now

In these small hours

These twists and turns of fate
Yeah, these twisted turns of fate
Time falls away
Yeah, but these small hours,

My favorite Dusty Springlfield song is "The Look of Love."   

I love "The Look of Love" too!  :D

Here are the lyrics (very Jack & Ennis):

The look of love
Is in your eyes
The look your smile cant disguise
The look of love
Is saying so much more
Than just words could ever say
And what my heart has heard
Well it takes my breath away

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you

Youve got the look of love
Its on your face
A look that time cant erase
Be mine tonight
Let this be just the start
Of so many nights like this
Lets take a lovers vow
And then seal it with a kiss

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you
Dont ever go

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you
Dont ever go
Dont ever go
I love you so

Here is a song that Jack might have sung to Ennis
(from Chet Baker)

I Get Along Without You Very Well

I get along without you very well
of course I do
except when soft rains fall
and drip from leaves that I recall
the thrill of being sheltered in your arms
of course I do
but I get along without you very well
I've forgotten you just like I should
of course I have
except to hear your name
or someone's laugh that is the same
but I've forgotten you just like I should
what a guy
what a fool am I
to think my breaking heart could kid the moon
whats in store
should I fall once more
no its best that I stick to my tune
I get along without you very well
of course I do
except perhaps in spring
but I should never think of spring
for that would surely break my heart in two.

Mine too, Lee. And here's what Ennis might have sang, if he was a sinner singer:

They Can't Take that Away From Me - George Gershwin

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No, no, they can't take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off-key
The way you haunt my dreams
No, no, they can't take that away from me

We may never, never meet again
On this bumpy road to love
Still I'll always, always keep the memory of...

The way you hold your knife
The way we talked till three
The way you've changed my life
No, no, they can't take that away from me
No, they can't take that away from me

Hey Lee, here's a little tidbit about your song, "I Get Along Without You Very Well":

"Words by Jane Brown Thompson and music by Hoagy Carmichael.

Composed by Carmichael several years after being given Mrs. Thompson's
unsigned poem by a student at Indiana University.  After an extensive
search, the author was located but she died the night before the song was
introduced by Dick Powell on a network radio program."

My CD player gave out today, so I've been listening to some classic LPs instead, and this was one of them. It's from Comes A Time by Neil Young

There's a lot to learn
For wastin' time
There's a heart that burns
There's an open mind.

Look out for my love, look out for my love
Look out for my love, look out for my love
You own it
You own it now
You own it.

There's a weight on you
But you can't feel it
Livin' like I do
It's hard for you to see it.

Was I hurt too bad
Can I show you daylight
How could I be sad
When I know that you might.

Look out for my love, look out for my love
Look out for my love, look out for my love.

Look out for my love
It's in your neighborhood
I know things are gonna change
But I can't say bad or good.

Silver wings of mornin'
Shinin' in the gray day
While the ice is formin'
On a lonely runway.

Hydraulic wipers pumpin'
'Til the window glistens
Somethin' sayin' somethin'
No one seems to listen.

Men with walkie-talkies
Men with flashlights wavin'
Up upon the tower
Time reads daylight savings.

I'm home again to you babe
You know it makes me wonder
Sittin' in the quiet slipstream
In the thunder.

Look out for my love, look out for my love
Look out for my love, look out for my love.

Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis

Closed off from love
I didn’t need the pain
Once or twice was enough
And it was all in vain
Time starts to pass
Before you know it you’re frozen

But something happened
For the very first time with you
My heart melts into the ground
Found something true
And everyone’s looking round
Thinking I’m going crazy

But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

Trying hard not to hear
But they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears
Try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that the goal
Is to keep me from falling

But nothing’s greater
Than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness
I see your face
Yet everyone around me
Thinks that I’m going crazy, maybe, maybe

But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

And it’s draining all of me
Oh they find it hard to believe
I’ll be wearing these scars
For everyone to see

I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love

Hey Lee, here's a little tidbit about your song, "I Get Along Without You Very Well":

"Words by Jane Brown Thompson and music by Hoagy Carmichael.

Composed by Carmichael several years after being given Mrs. Thompson's
unsigned poem by a student at Indiana University.  After an extensive
search, the author was located but she died the night before the song was
introduced by Dick Powell on a network radio program."
How interesting, Paul! Seems to bring home the irony of the title...you can't get along without love very well at all.
Now, when I hear this song, I think of rain dripping from eaves...tent eaves, instead of leaves.

 :(

She won x factor last year - shes been away for a year writing her album after just one single right after xfactor and has come back with this.

she's about to explode worldwide if reports are anything to go by - she has a 5 album deal for america and they are hailing her as the next mariah/celine/whitney - she does have an amazing voice so they were sensible to give her a year to get the best album possible together - rather than quickly get her first album ready to make mega bucks. I think they can make even more mega bucks with spending a bit of time over her.

(OT - but hope your sister is doing well.)

Someone once suggested "Everytime" by Britney Spears.  While I like the song itself and I think the lyrics are perfect, I just couldn't bring myself to put Britney on BBM Radio.  :laugh:

Here's a cover version, and the video even includes a screen cap of the boys in the dozy embrace.  :)

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2nSSWGWBis[/youtube]

Everytime - A Lullaby

Notice me, take my hand
Why are we strangers when
Our love is strong
Why carry on without me

Everytime I try to fly, I fall
Without my wings, I feel so small
I guess I need you, baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, it's haunting me
I guess I need you, baby

I make believe that you are here
It's the only way I see clear
What have I done
You seem to move on easy

And everytime I try to fly, I fall
Without my wings, I feel so small
I guess I need you, baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, you're haunting me
I guess I need you, baby

I may have made it rain
Please forgive me
My weakness caused you pain
And this song's my sorry

At night I pray
That soon your face will fade away

And everytime I try to fly, I fall
Without my wings, I feel so small
I guess I need you, baby
And everytime I see you in my dreams
I see your face, you're haunting me
I guess I need you, baby

I have been playing this song over and over, even though I don't know Spanish, and my son and I danced to it tonite. I envision it as a song Jack might have sung to Ennis had they both been Chilean sheepherders.

"La Vida Sin Amor"

Cuando el sol cae un dia mas
se que no quieres dormir
La pasión nos vuelve a desnudar
Porque sin ti yo no se vivir

Y en la oscuridad enloquecer
A un hombre y una mujer

LA VIDA SIN AMOR
ES UN FUEGO SIN PASIÓN
LA VIDA SIN AMOR
NO SIRVE YA A MI CORAZÓN
PUES OLVIDE AMAR

Lagrimas que nunca lloré
Suplicas que no te di
un mundo .igual que solo sabe huir
dejando atrás todo mi sufrir

Y en la oscuridad piel sobre piel
El alma calma su sed

LA VIDA SIN AMOR
ES UN FUEGO SIN PASIÓN
LA VIDA SIN AMOR
NO SIRVE YA A MI CORAZÓN
PUES OLVIDE AMAR

Y en la oscuridad piel sobre piel
El alma calma su sed

LA VIDA SIN AMOR
ES UN FUEGO SIN PASIÓN
LA VIDA SIN AMOR
NO SIRVE YA A MI CORAZÓN
PUES OLVIDE AMAR

Hi all,

I'm gonna go out on a wee limb here and suggest "Hallelujah" by k.d. lang.  I mention this because every time I hear it, I think of Ennis.

------------------------------------------

I heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
You don't really care for music, do ya?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Baby iv'e been here before,
Iv'e seen this room and ive walked the floor,
I used to live alone before i knew ya
But ive seen your flag on the marble arch,
Our love is not a victory march,
It's a cold and its a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there's a God above,
But all iv'e ever learnt from love,
Is how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya,
It's not a cry that u hear at night,
It's not someone whos seen the light,
It's a cold and broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah
-----------------------------

(I'm not prompting discussion on religion, I simply love the song).

That's beautiful, Sandy.

I have been listening to the soundtrack of The Motorcycle Diaries, also composed by Santaolalla, and I have been having fun playing a "what-if" game. What if this was the soundtrack to BBM? I'm almost scared to see the movie Motorcycle Diaries now, because I associate the music with scenes from BBM!!!

I love this song too.  A lot of people have recorded it.  I'm partial to the Jeff Buckley version.  But it says "she" and "her" too.  As long as BBM Radio is sticking with only masculine pronouns, I don't think this song will get played.

Another movie soundtrack that reminds me of Brokeback Mountain is The Last of the Mohicans. But some of the songs are a little over the top. They're all instrumental.

Another instrumental that always makes me think of Ennis is "Emperor of Wyoming" by Neil Young.

What are the chances of getting Heath's version of "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" from "10 Things I Hate About You" in rotation on the station?  I think the lyrics are appropriate, even if the style isn't.  It's short, and I think it would be a nice tribute to and a joyful reminder of him.  I have a so-so quality MP3 of it that I'm happy to share.

I donated some stuff to the Salvation Army thrift store a few weeks back, and, while I was there, I bought a used VHS of “Saturday Night Fever.”  It has special meaning to me since it was the first R-rated movie I saw in a theater.  My big brother took me.  I'm sure I still had placenta on me at the time.  Watching it now, I realize that so much of it went over my head.  I just enjoyed the music and flashing lights (and John Travolta’s tight pants).  Anyhow, it got me hankering for Bee Gees music, so I dug out their stuff from my collection for another listen. 

I know I got Brokeback brain, because most anything seems to make me think of it, can be related in some way to it.  Listening to “How Deep Is Your Love,” it struck me how it might be a good one for BbM radio -- lyrically, if not stylistically.  Here are the lyrics. . . 

I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again

And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love and then softly leave
And it's me you need to show

Chorus:
How deep is your love
I really need to learn
Cause were living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You're the light in my deepest darkest hour
You're my savior when I fall

And you may not think I care for you
When you know down inside that I really do
And it's me you need to show

Chorus
Repeat and fade


Whaddya think?  I had no luck finding a cover version of it, one that was less lush and all. 

Personally, my favorite Bee Gees song is “Fanny, Be Tender with My Love,” but that wouldn't really be appropriate for the station. . . unless it was changed to “Love, Be Tender with My Fanny” or something like that. 

By the way, are the Bee Gees considered British or Australian?  I think they were born in the UK but spent a lot of their lives in Australia.

I've toyed with putting the Bee Gee's on the station before.  Namely "Tragedy".   Perhaps it's time to "disco it up" a bit?   :D


Here I lie
In a lost and lonely part of town
Held in time
In a world of tears I slowly drown
Goinhome
I just cant take it all alone
I really should be holding you
Holding you
Loving you loving you

Tragedy
When the feelings gone and you cant go on
Its tragedy
When the morning cries and you dont know why
Its hard to bear
With no-one to love you youre
Goin nowhere
Tragedy
When you lose control and you got no soul
Its tragedy
When the morning cries and you dont know why
Its hard to bear
With no-one to love you youre
Goin nowhere

Night and day
Theres a burning down inside of me
Burning love
With a yearning that wont let me be
Down I go
And I just cant take it all alone
I really should be holding you
Holding you
Loving you loving you

Tragedy
When the feelings gone and you cant go on
Its tragedy
When the morning cries and you dont know why
Its hard to bear
With no-one to love you youre
Goin nowhere

When you lose control and you got no soul

.....

I love the BeeGees - they have a uniquely harmonious sound that can only be achieved with voices from members of the same family.  it could be considered a bold move but I think you could mix up the playlist a bit with these tracks, however maybe in a couple of weeks time when most folk might welcome a "pick me up" after this fairly gloomy period...

When I first read "Tragedy," I was, like, "Huh?"  I often have trouble deciphering the lyrics of songs the Bee Gees do.  Thank you for posting them.  Once I read them, I can see how they can relate to BbM.

I agree with nic.  Give it a shot and see how it goes. 

I don't know how the station song rotation works, but, if it's possible, why not put any Bee Gees songs in a lesser rotation, gauge the reaction, and take it from there.  Either put them in heavier or lesser rotation or take them off entirely. 

It's funny that you mention the Bee Gees' unique harmonies.  I'm a sucker for good harmony (and strings), and I'm enchanted by theirs.  I've been listening to a lot of their stuff (60s, 70s, and 80s) over the last couple of weeks.  I noticed how I can't always tell which one was doing the lead vocals, if one was harmonizing with himself, or what.  Even Andy Gibb's stuff sounds like the Bee Gees. . . not surprising considering his brothers wrote, produced, and performed on a lot of his stuff, but still. 

I give 'em credit for longevity and recreating themselves.  I also thing they are good songwriters.  Maybe I don't have the best ear for this kind of thing, but I think the songs they write are pretty distinctive; they don't sound a whole lot alike.  I mean, they wrote "Islands in the Stream," "What Kind of Fool," and "Heartbreaker."  Of course, those were interpreted and made popular by very different artists.  But they didn't sound like Bee Gees songs to me.

There isn't a way (as far as I know) to more prodominently feature one song over another.  Currently there are 311 songs in the playlist worth 18 hours and 4 minutes of music, all played at random.  If I were to re-start the playlist, you would actually need to listen for 18 hours 4 minutes straight (not including commercials) to hear every song in the playlist played. 

The playlist re-starts itself every 18 hours 4 minutes (not including commercials though) and still plays at random.  It could actually be very possible that as the playlist re-starts itself and let's say the first song is "The Wings", you begin listening after The Wings has played and tune in on the second song played.  18 hours goes by, and the playlist restarts itself.  It could be possible that in the 2nd playlist that just re-started, The Wings will be the last song played, meaning that a total of 36 hours actually goes by until The Wings is actually played on the station again...

We are currently at the maximum number of allowed songs for the station based on our membership level.  Currently if we want to add another song to the playlist, one song must be removed, and so forth...  I usually take the least rated songs off of the playlist when introducing new songs to the playlist.

Don't know if this song is on the play list but I was listening to it and looked up the lyrics.
Immediately I thought of Jack.

Listen to your heart

I know there's something in the wake of your smile
I get a notion from the look in your eyes yea
You've built a love but that love falls apart
Your little piece of heaven turns too dark

Listen to your heart when he's calling for you
Listen to your heart there's nothing else you can do
I don't know where you're going and I don't know why
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye

Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile
The precious moments are all lost in the tide yea
They're swept away and nothing is what it seems
The feeling of belonging to your dreams

Listen to your heart when he's calling for you
Listen to your heart there's nothing else you can do
I don't know where you're going and I don't know why
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye


And there are voices that want to be heard.
So much to mention but you can't find the words.
The scent of magic, the beauty that's been
When love was wilder than the wind.

Listen to your heart when he's calling for you
Listen to your heart, there's nothing else you can do
I don't know where you're going and I don't know why,
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye.

Listen to your heart mhmmmmm
I don't know where your going and I don't know why
Listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye

 The First Time Ever I saw Your Face

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the night and the empty skies my love
To the night and the empty skies

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth turn in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command my love
That was there at my command

The first time ever I lay with you
And felt your heart beat close to mine
I thought our joy would fill the earth
And would last 'till the end of time my love
And would last 'till the end of time

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the night and the empty skies my love
To the night and the empty skies

Breathe In, Breathe Out -- Mat Kearney

Breathe in, breathe out
Tell me all of your doubts
Everybody bleeds this way, just the same
Breathe in, breathe out
Move on and break down
If everyone goes away, I will stay
We push and pull
And I fall down sometimes
And I'm not letting go
You hold the other line
'Cause there is a light in your eyes, in your eyes

Hold on, hold tight
If I'm out of your sight
And everything keeps moving on, moving on
Hold on, hold tight
Make it through another night
In every day there comes a song with the dawn
We push and pull
And I fall down sometimes
And I'm not letting go
You hold the other line
'Cause there is a light in your eyes, in your eyes
There is a light in your eyes, in your eyes

Breathe in and breathe out
Breathe in and breathe out
Breathe in and breathe out
Breathe in and breathe out

Look left, look right
To the moon and the night
Everything under the stars is in your arms

'Cause there is a light in your eyes, in your eyes
There is a light in your eyes, in your eyes
There is a light in your eyes, in your eyes

How'bout Not Fade Away?

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZ8xM83fMhU[/youtube]

I wanna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
I'm gonna love you night and day
Well you know my love and not fade away
Well you know my love and not fade away

And my love is bigger than a Cadillac
I'll try to show it if you drive me back
Your love for me has got to be real
Before you'd have noticed how I feel
Love real not fade away
Well love real not fade away

(Instrumental)

I wanna tell you how it's gonna be
You're gonna give your love to me
Love that lasts more than one day
Well love is love and not fade away
Well love is love and not fade away
Well love is love and not fade away

I heard this song performed on Prairie Home Companion today and it brought back memories of when I used to sing it as a young buck. Here it is with a few tweaks:

Ennis' Song

There's a young man that I know
His age is the same as mine
He comes from up in Northern Wyoming
Just out of the (forest) service
And he's looking for his fun
Someday soon, going with him, someday soon.

My parents can not stand him
'Cause he rides the rodeo
My father says that he will leave me cryin'
I would follow him right up
The highest mountain I know
Someday soon, going with him, someday soon.

And when he comes to call, my wife ain't got a good word to say
Guess it's cause she was just as wild, in her younger days.
He loves his damned old rodeo as much as he loves me,
Someday soon, going with him, someday soon.

Okay, I've listened to it again to make sure it is gender neutral: Alabama's first big hit "Feels So Right". Being from 1981, our guys could have heard it on their truck radios on the way to a rendevous.

"How Can I Be Sure"........by the Young Rascalls


How can I be sure in a world that's constantly changing?
How can I be sure where I stand with you?
Whenever I, whenever I am away from you
I wanna die 'cause you know I wanna stay with you.
How do I know? Maybe you're trying to use me.
Flying too high can confuse me. Touch me but don't take me down.
Whenever I, whenever I am away from you
My alibi is telling people I don't care for you.
Maybe I'm just hanging around with my head up upside down.
It's a pity, I can't seem to find someone who's as pretty
and lovely as you.
How can I be sure? I really really really wanna know.
I really really really wanna know. Oh.
How can I be sure in a world that's constantly changing?
How can I be sure? I'll be sure with you

Someday Soon, written by (Canadian) Ian Tyson, of Ian & Sylvia fame. Song was originally released on their Northern Journey album in 1964

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_and_Sylvia

They married in June of 1964,and released their third album, Northern Journey during that year ... Also on the Northern Journey album was "Someday Soon", a composition by Ian that would rival "Four Strong Winds" in its popularity.

I guess Brokeback got me good, because I still hear songs that make me think about Jack and Ennis.  Here's the latest two, which I humbly suggest as additions to BbM Radio. 

1.  Falling Slowly - Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, from the “Once” soundtrack: 

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkFB8f8bzbY[/youtube]

I didn't pay much attention to this one until I recently read an article on Oscar-nominated songs.  I downloaded it and loved it.  The guy's voice reminds me of Cat Stevens'.  The lyrics remind me of Jack and Ennis getting to know each other on the mountain: 

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing along


2.   I'd Rather Be Blue – Fanny Brice

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WD4qc7C29OE[/youtube]

I've been listening to some old Fanny tunes lately, and this is by far my favorite.  It's a cute little ditty.  The video is creepy, but it's the only one I could find with the full version of the song.  I looked like the thing in the video the next morning after going out drinking with Karen and Rich last month. 

The song's style may not be a perfect fit for the station, but I think it's sentiments are -- at least in the first part.  Shoot, I wouldn't think playing this song on the station would be any more incongruous than playing Blue Oyster Cult or Coldplay, but that may just be me. 

Here I am
There you'll be
Miles and miles
Away from me
I can't see
The good in goodbye

Still
Best of friends
Have to part
Don't lose sleep
And don't lose heart
You know me
So, baby, don't cry

I'd rather be blue thinking of you
I'd rather be blue over you
Than be happy with somebody else

I can't live without cha, oucha
For you I'm strong
I'm crazy about cha, oucha macoucha
Don't stay too long

I need a little ah, little ooh, little oh
And I'm knocking on wood
Honey, hurry up, hurry up, hurry up
It's so hard to be good

I'd rather be blue thinking of you
I'd rather be blue over you
Than be happy with somebody else

Will I be good?
Will I be bad?
Don't be a fool, you fool

My little flat
I'm turning that
Into a Sunday school

While you're away
I'm here to say
There'll be no iceman there

Singing the blues
I'm gonna use
Nothing but Frigidaire

Still
I'd rather be blue thinking of you
I'd rather be blue over you
Than be happy with somebody else

Great suggestions! I've been wanting to see that movie, Once.

Thank you.  "Once" is on my list of movies to see, but that list is added to much more than it's subtracted from.  At the rate I'm going, I'll probably see it after I've retired. 

Excellent suggestions SKJ, and both will be added to the playlist.  :D

Wow.  Thank you. 

I'm still very much enjoying the station.  It's good company while I'm working.  The playlist has expanded so much and has a great variety of music, yet it still flows well -- at least to my ears. 

By the way, does it make a difference to the station if I listen for free or if I'm a paying Live365 customer?  Do listener hours for paying members count more better than for freeloaders?  I'm tempted to take advantage of the special deal they got going on VIP memberships.

 :D 

Yeah the ratings for the station are still pretty strong.  Even after 3 years.  I still keep expanding the playlist here 'n there.  The regulars (who have it on all the time it seems) always email with excitement when they hear a new track.  :D

And I still love tuning in as well.  Whenever I do it all comes rushing back it seems.  This playlist of songs is a whole part of the experience I believe.  It added so much to everything, and meant so much to many folks "back in the day".  It's still all there.... Thank you to Phillip for keeping it broadcasting!  :-*

It doesn't matter to us either way, just as long as you're listening!  :D   We may get $0.03 cents off the price of the broadcast if one person listens as a VIP for a month.  But for me, it's the total listening hours that count, whether it's VIP listeners or free listeners listening.  It still shows me that there is interest in the station!  :D

And yeah, the VIP offer is quite good.  I'd definitely buy it.  Imagine not having to hear that CIA ad again!!  ::)  :laugh:

Here's one of Kris Kristopherson's best, as sung by Johnny Cash (His voice!! so gravely - like he's at the end of 'hope')

Makes me think of lonely older Ennis

"Sunday Morning Coming Down"

Well, I woke up Sunday morning
With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt.
And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad,
So I had one more for dessert.
Then I fumbled in my closet through my clothes
And found my cleanest dirty shirt.
Then I washed my face and combed my hair
And stumbled down the stairs to meet the day.

I'd smoked my mind the night before
With cigarettes and songs I'd been picking.
But I lit my first and watched a small kid
Playing with a can that he was kicking.
Then I walked across the street
And caught the Sunday smell of someone frying chicken.
And Lord, it took me back to something that I'd lost
Somewhere, somehow along the way.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone.
And there's nothing short a' dying
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.

In the park I saw a daddy
With a laughing little girl that he was swinging.
And I stopped beside a Sunday school
And listened to the songs they were singing.
Then I headed down the street,
And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing,
And it echoed through the canyon
Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk,
I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned.
'Cause there's something in a Sunday
That makes a body feel alone.
And there's nothing short a' dying
That's half as lonesome as the sound
Of the sleeping city sidewalk
And Sunday morning coming down.

HEATHER MASSE is a Maine-born singer/songwriter who appears on A Prairie Home Companion sometimes. I love her voice and her manner of expression. Here’s a sample from a late October broadcast ( I will have to rely on an admin to actually embed the script):

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/www_publicradio/tools/media_player/js/swfobject.js"></script><div id="phc_2009_10_17_phc_20091017_64s_player"></div><script type="text/javascript">/*<![CDATA[*/var so = new SWFObject("http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/www_publicradio/tools/media_player/s_player.swf", "phc_2009_10_17_phc_20091017_64s_player", "319", "83", "8", "#ffffff");so.addParam("quality", "high");so.addParam("menu", "false");so.addParam("wmode", "transparent");so.addVariable("name", "phc/2009/10/17/phc_20091017_64");so.addVariable("starttime", "01:08:17");so.addVariable("endtime", "01:29:36");so.write("phc_2009_10_17_phc_20091017_64s_player");/*]]>*/</script>

At the end she sings “Next Time” which is not on her latest CD, Bird Songs. IT is written by Rich Dworsky of the APC cast. Here are a few lyrics:

“There’s always a chance that a rainbow may be shining
Just beyond the hill we’ve yet to climb
And I know that a garden can bloom and then can blossom
But I think we’ll have to wait until next time.”
Title: I Will Rise
Post by: Front-Ranger on July 11, 2010, 11:07:14 pm
There is a song which my congregation sings often which never fails to remind me strongly of Jack. It's called "I Will Rise":

There’s a peace I’ve come to know
Though my heart and flesh may fail
There’s an anchor for my soul
I can say “It is well”

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

Chorus:
And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles’ wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

There’s a day that’s drawing near
When this darkness breaks to light
And the shadows disappear
And my faith shall be my eyes

Jesus has overcome
And the grave is overwhelmed
The victory is won
He is risen from the dead

Chorus:
And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles’ wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise

And I hear the voice of many angels sing,
“Worthy is the Lamb”
And I hear the cry of every longing heart,
“Worthy is the Lamb”

Chorus:
And I will rise when He calls my name
No more sorrow, no more pain
I will rise on eagles’ wings
Before my God fall on my knees
And rise
I will rise"

And, another plus, the melody is very similar to Pat Methany's song that Annie Proulx listened to repeatedly when she was writing about the Dozy Embrace!

Post by: Marina on July 11, 2010, 11:23:20 pm
I'll have to give this a listen - I still need to listen to the one that inspired Annie Proulx for the Dozy Embrace.

After I first saw Brokeback, many, many songs reminded me of Ennis and Jack - one in particular that I have since heard reminded others too was What Hurts The Most by Rascal Flatts - I just couldn't get the lyrics out of my mind.

Are suggestions still being taken?  If so, I heard a good one.  A recent release by American singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne.  (apropos name...)

So your home town's bringing you down
Are you drowning in the small talk
and the chatter

Or you gonna step into line like your daddy done
Punching the time and driving life's long letter

You've been howling at the moon like a slackjawed fool
And breaking every rule they can throw on
But one of these days it's gonna be right soon
You'll find your legs and go and stay gone

Young man full of big plans and thinking about tomorrow
Young man going to make a stand
You beg, steal you borrow
You beg you steal you borrow

Well all the friends that you knew in school
They used to be so cool and they just bore you

Well look at them now, already pulling the plow
So quick to take to grain and some mourn you

Young man full of big plans and thinking about tomorrow
Young man going to make a stand
You beg steal you borrow
You beg you steal you borrow

Dreaming of the day
You're gonna pack your bags
Put the miles away
Oh, just grab your girl and go
Where no one knows you
What will all the old folks say?

So the home town's bringing you down
Are you drowning in the small talk and the chatter?
Or you gonna step into line like your daddy done
Punching the time and driving life's long letter

Young man full of big plans and thinking about tomorrow
Young man going to make a stand
You beg, steal you borrow
You beg you steal you borrow

I hope lots more people look at this video; it is very moving!

The words are exactly what I was trying to say in my thread about "The Laundry Room."

So make it real,
make it something you can feel
look up higher
for something cool to quench the fire
Let the raindrops fall
in the form of prayer
Let the river rise
in the deeds we dare

River's gonna rise up,
Rain's gonna fall,
River's gonna rise up,
Rain's gonna fall

The lyrics of this song are pretty vague, but when you add the beautiful melody, it reminds me very much of Jack and Ennis's time apart those four long years:

Sierra, Boz Scaggs

What about the one who said he loved you
What about the one who said he cared
Don't bother trying to find him
Way up in the icy air

Oh, you played with his heartstrings
And you played without a care
But not up in the High Sierra
You won't play his heart out there

The angels lay their clouds across his sky
They line up for him every night
Some have wings and others sing
The rest do lazy ballets in the air

There he's got a bird to give him warning
And he's got a lookout too
The beauty of the High Sierra
And she's looking out for you

The angels lay their clouds across his sky
They line up for him every night
Some have wings and others sing
The rest do lazy ballets in the air

What about the one who said he loved you
What about the one who said he cared
He's up in the High Sierra
But don't bother looking there.

Welcome kenzoid! We'll definitely check out your suggestions!!

I listened to a fantastic band on the way home from the airport tonight. It was called Stornoway...that's coincidentally the name of a town in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland that I visited this summer. The song I heard was "I Saw You Blink" and here are the lyrics. It reminded me a lot of our dear Ennis. I urge you to give this a listen.

I caught the sun on my way home
my way home

I caught the sun on my way home
my way home
when i got lost in thinking
and i missed the train
on my way home
on my way home
i missed the train on my way home
my way home
cos i was stil day dreaming

but i need to know
are you the one?
are you the one?
cos i need to know
are you the one ive been waiting for?

i saw you blink
and i missed your eyes your blue eyes
mmmmm
i saw you blink and i missed your eyes
your blue eyes
when we were talki ng upstairs
and what would i see
if i llooked in through the window?
what i've seen if id looked deep through the coloured glass in through the window

but i need to know
are you the one?
are you the one?
Cos i need to know
are you the one ive been waiting for

And i climbed up the hill when i got home
and faced up towards you
what are you thinking of then?
what are you thinking?

cos i need to know
are you the one?
are you the one?
cos i need to know
are you the one ive been waiting for
for so long

Listened to this beautiful song after my workout today and it seemed to be like the lake scene updated to this decade.  The first verse is sung by Emmylou Harris, and the words remind me so much of Jack. The second verse is sung by Mark Knopfler, an Ennis if I ever heard one. He even mumbles! The chorus is sung by both of them, and it made me cry:

If This is Goodbye

My famous last words
Are laying around in tatters
Sounding absurd
Whatever I try
But I love you
And that's all that really matters
If this is goodbye
If this is goodbye

Your bright shining sun
Would light up the way before me
You were the one
Made me feel I could fly
And I love you
Whatever is waiting for me
If this is goodbye
If this is goodbye

Who knows how long we've got
Or what were made out of
Who knows if there's a plan or not
There is our love
I know there is our love

My famous last words
Could never tell the story
Spinning unheard
In the dark of the sky
But I love you
And this is our glory
If this is goodbye
If this is goodbye

Why must I meet you in a secret rendezvous?
Why must we steal away to steal a kiss or two?
Why must we wait to do the things we want to do?
Why, oh why, oh why, oh why, oh why?

Wish we didn't have to meet secretly
Wish we didn't have to kiss secretly
Wish we didn't have to be afraid
To show the world that we're in love

Till we have the right to meet openly
Till we have the right to kiss openly
We'll just have to be content to be in love secretly

Why, oh why, oh why, oh why, oh why?

Wish we didn't have to meet secretly
Wish we didn't have to kiss secretly
Wish we didn't have to be afraid
To show the world that we're in love

Till we have the right to meet openly
Till we have the right to kiss openly
We'll just have to be content to be in love secretly

John Denver's "Rocky Mountain Suite":

Up in a meadow in Jasper Alberta
Two men and four ponies on a long lonesome ride
To see the high country and learn of her people
The ways that they lived there the ways that they died
And one is a teacher one a beginner
Just wanting to be there and wanting to know
And together they're trying to tell us a story
That should have been listened to long long ago
Now the life in the mountains is living in danger
From too many people too many machines
And the time is upon us today is forever
Tomorrow is just one of yesterday's dreams

Cold nights in Canada and icy blue winds
The man and the mountains are brothers again
Clear waters are laughing they sing to the sky
The Rockies are living they never will die

Up in a meadow in Jasper Alberta
Two men and four ponies on a long lonesome ride

A new way to fly



Like birds on a high line
They line up at night time at the bar
They all once were lovebirds
Now bluebirds are all that they are
They landed in hell
The minute they fell from love's sky
And now they hope in the wine
That they'll find a new way to fly

A new way to fly
Far away from goodbye
Above the clouds and the rain
The memories and the pain
And the tears that they cry
Now the lessons been learned
They've all crashed and burned
But they can leave it behind
If they could just find
A new way to fly

By the end of the night
They'll be high as a kite once again
And they don't seem to mind all the time
Or the money they spend
It's a high price to pay
to just find a way to get by
But it's worth every dime
If they find a new way to fly

A new way to fly
Far away from goodbye
Above the clouds and the rain
The memories and the pain
And the tears that they cry
Now the lessons been learned
They've all crashed and burned
But they can leave it behind
If they could just find
A new way to fly

They'll leave it behind
As soon as they find
A new way to fly



this remind me of some one special in my life 8)

Came across this song on the radio and it made me think of Jack. He wasn't one to walk away for sure.



Jason Mraz: I won't give up

Hmmmm ... Hmmmm ... Hmmmm ... Hmmm ...

When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There's so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No, I won't give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not
And who I am

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
Still looking up.

I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)
God knows we're worth it (and we're worth it)

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

Chrissi that is a wonderful song!

Now here's my contribution from Joe Cocker:

Up Where We Belong

Who knows what tomorrow brings
In a world where few hearts survive
All I know is the way I feel
When it's real
I keep it alive

The road is long
There are mountains in the way
But we climb a step every day

[Chorus]
Love lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry
On a mountain high
Love lift us up where we belong
Far from the world we know
Up where the clear winds blow

Some hang on to used to be
Live their lives looking behind
When all we have is here and now
All our lives
Out there to find

The road is long
There are mountains in the way
But we climb a step every day

[Chorus]

Time goes by
No time to cry
Life's you and I
Alive, today

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly
A stranger's heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then it's smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you

I think it's strange you never knew

After finally watching the movie for the first time with sfericsf, I was playing him my records the next day never realized how many of my songs kept reminding of the movie and of Jack and Ennis... (Especially most of the A side of the Carpenters album A Song for You). These songs don't need much explanation and can speak for themselves.

Heard this one last night, and I had to suggest it too...

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ac24COCKTVM[/youtube]

As soon as I heard the lyrics I immediately thought of Jack and Ennis and their true feelings they kept inside.

This verse sums it up quite well:

If we both were born
In another place and time
This moment might be ending in a kiss
But there you are with yours
And here I am with mine
So I guess we'll just be leaving it at this

Are you familiar with John Grant, particularly his album Queen of Denmark?  It is astonishing, and the best gay album I have ever heard by far.  Some of the tracks may be a little grim for BBM Radio, but "TC and Honey Bear," Marz," and "Caramel" would fit BBM Radio very well.  Check Grant out on Youtube; he is well represented there.

Friends,

I don't know what kind of system you have here for the radio, or where else i should put this right now!
But i just came across a long-forgotten song of George Michael - Jesus to a child. I think it is an extremely beautiful song and reminded me instantly of Ennis  :'( *sob*.



"Jesus To A Child"

Kindness in your eyes
I guess you heard me cry
You smiled at me
Like Jesus to a child
I'm blessed i know
Heaven sent and heaven stole
You smiled at me like
Jesus to a child
And what have i learned
From all this pain
I thought i'd never feel the same
About anyone or anything again
But now i know

When you find a love
When you know that it exists
Then the lover that you miss
Will come to you on those cold, cold nights
When you've been loved
When you know it holds such bliss
Then the lover that you kissed
Will comfort you when there's no hope in sight

Sadness in my eyes
No one guessed, well no one tried
You smiled at me
Like Jesus to a child
Loveless and cold
With your last breath you saved my soul
You smiled at me
Like Jesus to a child
And what have i learned
From all these tears
I've waited for you all those years
Then just when it began
He took your love away
But i still say

When you find a love
When you know that it exists
Then the lover that you miss
Will come to you on those cold, cold nights
When you've been loved
When you know it holds such bliss
Then the lover that you kissed
Will comfort you when there's no hope in sight

So the words you could not say
I'll sing them for you
And the love we would have made
I'll make it for two
For every single memory
Has become a part of me

You will always be...my love

Well i've been loved
So i know just what love is
And the lover that i kissed is always by my side
Oh the lover i still miss...was Jesus to a child.

Here is quite a beautiful cover by a very young lady (16 years old or so!).

So, George Michael wrote that song in memory of his first-time love, with whom he was together only a couple of years before he passed away from HIV (in 1993). It's interesting to read that George had not come out by that time and even his mother (with whom he apparently had a very close relationship) did not know it. He told her only after his lover died. He worked on his album "Older" - dedicated to his passed away love - for 3 years and it was released in 1996.

Which makes me think how he must have felt - grieving, but not able to grieve properly / openly? That sounds quite familiar, doesn't it?

And another interesting fact: He finally came out after an arrest in Los Angeles where he was apparently caught in a "lewd act" at a public toilet. And he says: "I would never have put myself in the stupid position of doing it in America where I knew the level of homophobia". This was in 1998!
He also says: "I always knew it was going to happen sometime, I was going to get outed one way or another. [...] It took me a good year to admit to myself it was subconsciously deliberate."

Gosh, why does this all sound SO familiar?! Probably i'm just going nuts...  ::)

This topic is a great resource for gender-neutral love songs!

This is a song you all will enjoy--and perhaps it will lure you to check out the band which is amazing: I SEE HAWKS IN LA (yes that is the band's name).

Title: Re: Song Suggestions "High Sierra" Boz Scaggs

Is this what you were thinking of, x-man?

The lyrics of this song are pretty vague, but when you add the beautiful melody, it reminds me very much of Jack and Ennis's time apart those four long years:

Sierra, Boz Scaggs

What about the one who said he loved you
What about the one who said he cared
Don't bother trying to find him
Way up in the icy air

Oh, you played with his heartstrings
And you played without a care
But not up in the High Sierra
You won't play his heart out there

The angels lay their clouds across his sky
They line up for him every night
Some have wings and others sing
The rest do lazy ballets in the air

There he's got a bird to give him warning
And he's got a lookout too
The beauty of the High Sierra
And she's looking out for you

The angels lay their clouds across his sky
They line up for him every night
Some have wings and others sing
The rest do lazy ballets in the air

What about the one who said he loved you
What about the one who said he cared
He's up in the High Sierra
But don't bother looking there.

This reminds me, I have another song to add to the collection!

Ticket to the Moon: ELO

Remember the good old 19860's
When things were so uncomplicated
I wish I could go back there again
And everything could be the same
I've got a ticket to the moon
I'll be leaving here any day soon
Yeah, I've got a ticket to the moon
But I'd rather see the sunrise, in your eyes
Got a ticket to the moon
I'll be rising high above the earth so soon
And the tears I cry might turn into the rain
That gently falls upon your window
You'll never know
Ticket to the moon
Ticket to the moon
Ticket to the moon
Fly, fly through a troubled sky
Up to a new world shining bright, oh oh
Flying high above
Soaring madly through the mysteries that come
Wondering sadly if the ways that led me here
Could turn around and I would see you there
Standing there (I would see you…
