    This is a singing thread.

    For late night or early AM Threaders..."" Goodnight Irene, goodnight irene, I'll see you in my Dreams""...

    I'm rather thinking then, that you will be familiar with this tune by The Seekers....

    Of the artists that have covered this song, I think I like this version by Gale Garnett the best. Spent most of my childhood in the company of adults and so am fond of the music of the generations previous to my own.

    Dolly Parton has many a hit to her credit but I think that this one is her signature song....



    Most people associate "I Will Always Love You" with Whitney Houston's smash hit from the Bodyguard soundtrack. Dolly Parton wrote the song, and had a hit with it in 1982's The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. Written for her one-time mentor, Porter Wagoner, the lyrics are poignant, and the melody is spectacular. "I Will Always Love You" is widely considered to be one of the five greatest songs ever written, and has been covered by dozens of other artists, with the most successful version being that of Whitney Houston. The earlier version by Dolly Parton is just as beautiful, however, and there's an earnest feeling to hearing the song performed by the woman who wrote it. It's easy to see why "I Will Always Love You" is the number one song by Dolly Parton.

    Dear scheherazade. Dolly Parton. "" JOLENE"" Thank you. Not only made my day but I've spent the whole hour just listening to your Posted Video Music Tapes. "" and They can't take that away from me"". Sometime, a long time ago, the music stopped, They took the music away.

    Something must have happened. When younger, like everybody else, we were short of spare cash. But somehow, don't ask me how, my Mother got her hands on a Little Nipper Gramaphone. A portable wind up one, Large wind up handle at the side. She took it everywhere with us kids. Down by the river. Outside at night. She became a fan of Country Music. Hank Williams. Tex Morton. Buddy Williams. I loved it. Fate had given me the emotion for Music and robbed me of any talent. It would have given me the greatest pleasure to have picked up Guitar Playing Trumpet Violin Bass but it was not to be. The Angels know this and in my next existance they;ll help me along.

    So I have had a teary hour and have saved to favourites for a few more teary half hours. I can only offer and give you my heart felt thanks for the time you took to Poste the Music Videos. Made my day and was completely unexpected.

    Why had I not remembered the music of my boyhood and childhood? Escpecially of these later years.? I'm powered up again and have put off looking for the silver bullet. All I've been doing is feeding a rather large but not unhappy black dog. He's not vicious. He nuzzles me but never growls. Of course he has always been in my bed. But not in my dreams. Thats what happens to you if you forget the Music. And, somehow, I'd forgotten the music.

    My Angel said I can come in out of the cold. The Music is back in your life. And you can thank scheherazade for the trouble he went to.

    So once again thanks. Next week I'll be up Country for a short time. I'll leave the Black Dog at home, although I don't dislike him. westwind.

    Why thank you, good Westwind, for your kind remarks. Here are two of my favorite takes of an old classic, 500 miles, for your journey, and I shall be delighted to post more music to this thread when you return.

    I remember my mother singing the traditional version of this song when I was a child. Laura Smith does a more contemporary version of the song and it just sends shivers up my spine everytime I hear it, especially of late....

    The video is a collage of exquisitely done black and white photgraphs.

    Enjoy, westwind. I've been watching the backtrail and see sign that you travel this way once again...

    Dear scheheazade. Man, you have sussed me out pretty good. There is some sort of communication here. You have returned me to my love of music and poetry. I guess I had become self-centered along the way. When you get a fixation on a direction in your Life it tends to shut out reality and awareness. You no longer listen to birdsong. ( MW liked birdsong. ). Thank you for your continued thoughtfullness. I guess others have tuned in also, I hope so.

    Could I steer you to the Australian Poet Henry Lawson, ( a very distant family connection through his Mother ), a real off the Trail kind of guy. that knew a thing or two about Horses and the smell of the Countryside.

    A selected Verse only, from one of his many Descriptive "" Out West "" Poems.

    "" from "" In The Days When The World Was Wide ""

    A hand upon the horses mane,
    And one foot in the stirrup set,
    And, stooping back to kiss again
    With, "" Good-bye Mary "" don't you fret!
    "" When I come back- he laughed for her-
    We do not know how soon 'twill be;
    I'll whistle as I round the spur-
    You let the sliprails down for me. ""

    From "The Sliprails and The Spur', by Henry Lawson. ( Google up "The..... ) westwind.

    As you be one who appreciates poetry and the nature of horses, Westwind, I post this item for yourself and others to enjoy. An iconic Aussie poem and film merged into a 10 minute piece of stunning visual art, including 'the descent', the best piece of footage I have ever seen of man and horse riding in their element.

    If you don't get goosebumps at least once in the watching, I'd be a mite surprised. Enjoy!

    Re; "Man from Snowy River". There is an Annual gathering of horsemen in the 'High Country'. here in Victoria Australia. Traditionally cattle were moved from the QUOTE 'The hot and dusty plains' END QUOTE, as the Seasons changed, up into the ''High Country'. Well over 100 years now. Recently legislation by Australian Central Government has decreed a cessation of this exploitation of natural habitate. Naturally this has not gone down well with Cattlemen. No more free Grazing for their cattle. Maybe even have to hand feed in hot summers. On the dry and dusty plains. My feelings on this? well, everything is always up for change for whatever reason. Here the reason seems to be the exploitation by a miniority Group with self interest of the Nations National Parks Invironment. This is, or could, lead to degrading the High Country to the detrimate of the ordinary people in their enjoyment of a National assett.

    The Cattlemen counter argue this on the basis that their cattle grazing causes little invironmental damage and minimises pasture and growth that could ignite into bush fires in a hot Summer.

    Protests, on horseback, are held in Melbourne, blocking normal traffic flow, occassionally, as the battle continues to regain, what they see as their God given rights.

    Natural grazing is not as important now as it was in the 19/20 Centuries. Cattle are more and more, in the Southern States anyway, subject to Feed Lots. This regulated feeding is a weight and quality thing.

    Probably the cattle should, only periodically return to the High Country to clean up excessive growth in a high fire danger situation. Of course than they run the risk of being roasted. westwind.

    Thank you for providing such interesting details on the status of open range in Australia, Westwind. Range fed cattle are deemed to be healthier than feed lot cattle so in a way it will be a loss to the beef eating public as well, unless some proviision might be made for some of the land to serve as community pasture. By restricting cattle to feedlots, land must be cleared and cropped to grow feed for the animals which has greater environmental effect than allowing the animals to graze on marginal land left in a natural state. What uses to permit on public lands is ever an issue of debate.

    Here in the Yukon, with a growing population, there is need for regulation of ATV's and snowmachines. The favored recreation of many is to embark on wilderness travel on the noisy and destructive machines most weekends of the year. Faster is better for many of these folks and the aggressive tires they use for off-road travel plays havoc with the thin layer of topsoil and growth, disturbing wildlife and these 'city folk' are the cause of many forest fires each season which is a further public cost and loss of a natural resource.

    Methinks we should have built a wall around this place and maintained a sustainable population with respect for the land. No newbies allowed in save replacements when one of the existing residents pings off, lol....
    Yes, I'm a tad protective of this special place.

    Here's a classic old tune that I expect you will recognize.

    You mean like a "GATED " Community scheherazade? Wot a good idea. It's no good scheherazade, as soon as Climate Change makes good growing conditions for peaches and nectarines in your corner of the Yukon they'll be a'rriving in their buckboards and covered wagons.

    "My Darling Clemintine". Now is this a Texas song? Have you access to a CD that you could poste where we have Patsy Cline singing "Crazy".? I'm using you up now scheherazade, so let it be definitely at your convienience.

    In return I'll pass on some Australian Folk Lore or traditional insights. This will be our secret.

    First juicy piece of Australianism. We are all not six foot tall. I hate the Beach. ( All that Sun and Sand.). Kangaroos do not hop down Collins Street. And yes, the Pavlova is our invention. westwind.

    Dear scheherazade. A little poem for the retail grocery.

    a lb. of Tea
    For one and three
    A Pot of Strawberry Jam.
    Two new laid eggs
    A dozen Pegs
    And a lb. of Rashers of Ham.
    I'll say it over
    All the way
    So as not to forget.... My old memory now deserts me, but it is from English village folf lore...westwind.

    Not an easy one to find but is this perhaps the rest of it? Lots of other folk on-line looking for the rest of that poem as well on one of the sites I came across.

    THE ERRAND - Anon
    A pound of tea at one and three,
    a pot of strawberry jam.
    Two new-laid eggs, a dozen pegs,
    and a single rasher of ham.

    I say it all over as I go,
    for then I won't forget.
    For if I chance to get things wrong,
    my mother gets in such a pet !

    There in the hay the children play,
    they're having such jolly fun.
    I'll go there too, that's what I'll do,
    as soon as my errand is done.

    Now here's the shop, outside I'll stop,
    and go through my errands again.
    I haven't forgot, no, ne'er a jot.
    It shows I'm pretty cute, that's plain.

    A pound of three at one and tea,
    a pot of strawberry ham.
    Two new-laid pegs, a dozen eggs,
    and a single rasher of jam !!

    This being a song thread, what song would be more fitting than 'Two For Tea', sung here by Doris Day? I have memories of this playing on vinyl at my grandparents home.



    Tommy Dorsey and his orchestra play the song in a 'Cha, Cha,Cha' arrangement in this version, very energizing for tackling the housework, lol...

    It seems only logical to follow 'North to Alaska' with some video of the aurora borealis.
    Give the video time to load before playing.

    I remember driving down the road in the fall of 1964 and hearing Gale Garnett on the radio. It depressed the heck out of me because I had just broken up with my girl friend.

    Music does become associated with memories, for a fact, and sorry to hear that Gale Garnett is associated with sad ones for you Jim.

    Thanks for posting the link to your own CD as well as one of ABBA's classic tunes. The following is probably my favorite song by the group, set to some beautiful photographs.

    This is a jaunty little number by The Seekers that my parents used to play at dances, their instrumental group known as The Ad-Ventures, for they did a lot of songs by the group known as The Ventures.

    THE SEEKERS
    "Georgy Girl"

    (Words by Jim Dale and Music by Tom Springfield)



    Hey there, Georgy girl
    Swingin' down the street so fancy-free
    Nobody you meet could ever see the loneliness there - inside you
    Hey there, Georgy girl
    Why do all the boys just pass you by?
    Could it be you just don't try or is it the clothes you wear?

    You're always window shopping but never stopping to buy
    So shed those dowdy feathers and fly - a little bit

    Hey there, Georgy girl
    There's another Georgy deep inside
    Bring out all the love you hide and, oh, what a change there'd be
    The world would see a new Georgy girl

    [Instrumental Interlude]

    Hey there, Georgy girl
    Dreamin'; of the someone you could be
    Life is a reality, you can't always run away
    Don't be so scared of changing and rearranging yourself
    It's time for jumping down from the shelf - a little bit

    Hey there, Georgy girl
    There's another Georgy deep inside
    Bring out all the love you hide and, oh, what a change there'd be
    The world would see a new Georgy girl

    (Hey there, Georgy girl)
    Wake up, Georgy girl
    (Hey there, Georgy girl)
    Come on, Georgy girl

    [Fade]

    (Hey there, Georgy girl)
    Wake up, Georgy girl

    I remember the original Blues Project which started back in the mid 1960's which was a jazz inspired/blues band that was very popular. This new group isn't them is it?

    Here is a more upbeat tune about water and shrimp boats. Hey, westwind, get your grizzled hide over to your thread and respond! The rest of us are doing all the 'heavy lifting' as you put it.

    video showed the 1st day, not since on this 'puter, so here's the link
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDSk4zwjg5A
    does the video show for y'all?



    when i was a teen, i thought the gas pedal belonged on the floor boards, one fine day, i was cruising the back roads when i saw a green car gaining on me from 1/4 mile back
    i had a 57 ford police interceptor, tires schreeching in the curves, and this sucker was keeping up
    -------------
    I pulled into the driveway, and a few moments later so did the green car
    a nash rambler driven by my minister, the reverend Zinn

    really nice guy
    liked to look in on his flock

    Hey scheherazade. My Sony earphones have been on for several weeks now, just listening to all the Tunes and Songs yoyáll are putting up. I guess thats's lazy of me it is just that I haven't got round to learning how to poste the Audio/video lead.

    A song I have in mind I last heard at a long term friends funeral . She chose ""You are the wind beneath my wings"" something like that. She loved her Husband but women didn't rate with him, so when she Knew she was dying, she chose this number, full rendition, full volumne. I detected a small tear from husbands eye, quickly brushed aside.

    I'll contribute schehearzade, truly, it won't happen overnight, but it will happen. westwind

    Several artists have covered 'Wind beneath my wings' and it was Bette Midler who reached the greatest heights on the chart with it, although it was the crooner, Roger Whittaker, who first released the song commercially. I have included the link to Wiki for those who would like to know more about the history of the song and the version that follows is by Lee Greenwood, set to the musical, CATS, the second longest running show in Broadway history.

    Thanks scheherazade. They murdered it. I like Bette Midlers version, long version, with the two girls on the beach. This is the one, or something like it, thay I heard at the funeral. Played with the volumn up while you walk from room to room, who needs yellow jelly?

    Just briefly, I download on utube, say Bette Midler, but when I try to ""save as "" I make the link to a File but I cannot retrieve from that File as it dosn't carry the Audio/visual, only title. So I've only saved the Title.

    I've downloaded the driver for copying, but still the same result. I'll sort it, and it is a learning curve for me, but I waste a lot of time. westwind.

    Yes you've go to love old Jack Thompson, he lives a couple of K's from us and you occasionally see him out walking his dogs.
    He is a great old Aussie icon and will always give you a G'day and a wave.

    Hey Scheherazade,
    How are you embedding the You Tube video so that the player appears in the thread?
    TIA

    Hello Roto, and welcome to the forum.

    You obviously know how to copy and paste. To have the player show in your post, you just need to locate and left click on the little icon above the reply box as I have circled and then it will open to a screen that has the cursor already flashing in the location to right click and paste your copied URL. At the bottom of that window, select the green 'Okay' button and you should be good. You can then preview your post ( see bottom right of the reply screen) to see if you have posted the correct link and then submit reply when you are done your post.

    This song by LOBO, (actual name is Kent Lavoie) went to #2 on the Billboard Chart in 1972. This song was written by Kent and offered to the Hollies but was never recorded by them. Kent recorded it himself and it became the highest charting song of his career.

    Something a little more up to date:


    I could listen to this forever.
    The first time I heard it it completely blew me away, and literally made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
    (And it always struck me as far more "realistic" than that hackneyed (and essentially whining) old standard of Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive).

    I think she grown it has now, and she's still making albums and performing.
    AIUI the extreme haircut was her reaction when record company marketing executives suggested she grow her long to make her more "appealing" - e.g. visually attractive and milk the "sexy female singer" image. I admire her tremendously for that decision.
    Plus, of course, I think she's very attractive even (or especially) with no hair.

    Eve - Make It Out This Town (feat. Gabe Saporta) [CDQ/Full] *NEW 2013* - YouTube

    When I close my eyes I can see me flyin' home
    High above the clouds....
    Swear I won't look back, if I get the chance
    I won't come back around

    Yo, have you ever laid in bed and it's late in the night,
    Starin' at the ceiling talkin' to God about life?
    Askin' when it's gon' happen, just maybe it might
    Made a lot of life turns, some wrong and some right
    Wanna know when it's your second, your minute, your time
    Sick of dreamin', wanna lay the pictures in your mind
    Never been like all the others, you're one of a kind
    I know you're feelin' like you wanna break free, it's a sign
    Just wanna fly above it all, see where you can land
    Know that you can do it on your own 'cause you can
    Know that you can conquer all with a plan
    Forget about the negatives buried in the sand
    Yeah, never forget this is your life
    Your path, your dream, this is your fight
    Victory, you'll see, you'll be alright
    Get through the darkness, on the other end is pure light

    When I close my eyes I can see me flying home
    High above the clouds
    Swear I won't look back if I get the chance
    Oh… I won't come back around
    If I make it out this town, yeah…
    Gotta make it out this town, yeah…
    I'm gonna make it out this town, yeah…
    I'm gonna roll the dice, and take a risk tonight
    Gotta make it out this town

    Have you ever felt alone like the whole world was missin'?
    And when you prayed it seemed like no one was listenin'
    You try to keep the faith and keep on livin'
    But when you strugglin', the future looks distant
    All your hopes seem to be just pipe dreams
    And you really gotta wonder what your life means
    That's when you gotta pick yourself up out the dust
    Make a change and find a place in your heart to trust
    You ain't always gotta take the first call to dough
    In this life, only you can represent yourself
    Never let your circumstances hold you back
    You were born free, never gotta feel trapped
    In the pursuit of happiness, you're gonna feel pain
    But the only way to win is to stay in the game
    The naysayers, they goon' try and embarrass ya
    But I've learned that the struggle builds character

    When I close my eyes I can see me flying home
    High above the clouds
    Swear I won't look back if I get the chance
    Oh… I won't come back around
    If I make it out this town, yeah…
    Gotta make it out this town, yeah…
    I'm gonna make it out this town, yeah
    I'm gonna roll the dice, and take a risk tonight
    Gotta make it out this town

    Put your hands in the air now
    If you feel it let me hear you loud
    Put your hands in the air now!
    Yeah, if ain't nobody gonna hold you down
    Yeah, come on, come on...

    When I close my eyes I can see me flying home
    High above the clouds
    Swear I won't look back if I get the chance
    Oh… I won't come back around
    If I make it out this town, yeah…
    Gotta make it out this town, yeah…
    I'm gonna make it out this town, yeah…
    I'm gonna roll the dice, and take a risk tonight
    Gotta make it out this town
    When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.
