Rivers of Babylon - Boney M.
2017.10.10
今日は、変な時間(1830JST~2100JST)に寝てしまったので、この時間になっても全然眠くないです…ブログで遊ぶとしませう。

この歌、とても大好きです。
何回聞いても飽きませんね。



"Rivers of Babylon"

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion

When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land

That the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Requiering of us a song
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land

Let the words of our mouth and the meditations of our heart
be acceptable in thy sight here tonight

Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our hearts
be acceptable in thy sight here tonight

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
ye-eah we wept, when we remembered Zion

By the rivers of Babylon (dark tears of Babylon)
there we sat down (You got to sing a song)
ye-eah we wept, (Sing a song of love)
when we remember Zion (Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)

By the rivers of Babylon (Rough bits of Babylon)
there we sat down (You hear the people cry)
ye-eah we wept, (They need their God)
when we remember Zion (Ooh, have the power)

Pineapple Princess - Annette Funicello
2017.10.04
秋も中盤に差し掛かって少し寒さを感じるようになってきた今日この頃ですが、たまには季節外れで能天気な歌を聞きませう…。



"Pineapple Princess"

"Pineapple princess", he calls me pineapple princess all day
As he plays his ukulele on the hill above the bay
"Pineapple princess, I love you, you're the sweetest girl I've seen"
"Some day we're gonna marry and you'll be my pineapple queen"

I saw a boy on Oahu isle
Floatin' down the bay on a crocodile
He waved at me and he swam ashore
And I knew he'd be mine forevermore

"Pineapple princess", he calls me pineapple princess all day
As he plays his ukulele on the hill above the bay
"Pineapple princess, I love you, you're the sweetest girl I've seen"
"Some day we're gonna marry and you'll be my pineapple queen"

He sings his song from banana trees
He even sings to me on his water skis
We went skin-divin' and beneath the blue
He sang and played his ukulele, too

"Pineapple princess", I love you, you're the sweetest girl I've seen
"Some day we're gonna marry and you'll be my pineapple queen"

We'll settle down in a bamboo hut
And he will be my own little coconut
Then we'll be beachcombin' royalty
On wicky-wicky wacky Waikiki

"Pineapple princess", he calls me pineapple princess all day
As he plays his ukulele on the hill above the bay
"Pineapple princess, I love you, you're the sweetest girl I've seen"
"Some day we're gonna marry and you'll be my pineapple queen"

Yellow River - Christie
2017.09.10
私の脳内では、大変気持ちよく聞けるシリーズ(?)の一つです。
この曲も、事務所で聞く作業用BGMを漁っていた時に発見しました。



"Yellow River"

So long boy you can take my place, got my papers I've got my pay
So pack my bags and I'll be on my way to yellow river

Put my guns down the war is won
Fill my glass high the time has come
I'm going back to the place that I love yellow river

Yellow river, yellow river is in my mind and in my eyes
Yellow river, yellow river is in my blood, it's the place I love

Got no time for explanations, got no time to lose
Tomorrow night you'll find me
Sleeping underneath the moon at yellow river

Cannon fire lingers in my mind, I'm so glad that I'm still alive
And I've been gone for such a long time from yellow river

I remember the nights were cool I can still see the water pool
And I remember the girl that I knew from yellow river

Yellow river, yellow river is in my mind and in my eyes
Yellow river, yellow river is in my blood it's the place I love

Got no time for explanations, got no time to lose
Tomorrow night you'll find me
Sleeping underneath the moon at yellow river

Yellow river, yellow river is in my mind and in my eyes
Yellow river, yellow river is in my blood it's the place I love

Laughter In The Rain - Neil Sedaka
2017.09.01
1コーラスだけ聞いたら満足して、次の曲に移ってしまう最後まで聞かない曲の一つです。(?)
イントロから出だしのメロディーが大好きです。
