Michael Hutchence and INXS

30 Nov

I post this for ladies 🙂

Some of the most charismatic front men of bands Jim Morrison, Michael Hutchence, Kurt Cobain, Freddie Mercury died young but what they left behind is incredible body of work and great great music..

I have been a INXS and Michael Hutchence fan in my growing years, wonder if there is anyone who is a more potent mix of talent, charisma and sexiness than Michael Hutchence…

Brilliant singer, great band and a song that love..

Disappear :

Say I’m cryin’, lookin’ at what’s on TV
Pain and sufferin’ and the struggle to be free
It can’t ever be denied and I never will ignore
But when I see you comin’ I can take it all

You’re so fine, lose my mind
And the world seems to disappear
All the problems, all the fears
And the world seems to disappear

Say you’re mine and give yourself
To the feelings that you know
I’m needin’ all that you can give me
All the things that you do so well

Words are healin’, sweet anticipation
Makin’ spells as the shadows close in
And fall across all our yesterdays

You’re so fine, lose my mind
And the world seems to disappear
All the problems, all the fears
And the world seems to disappear

You’re so fine, lose my mind
And the world seems to disappear
All the problems, all the fears
And the world seems to disappear

Disappear, disappear
Disappear, disappear
Disappear, disappear
Disappear, disappear

Say if I could
Look into myself and reason
But I could never never see or
Make sense of the deal

Turn around I’m lookin’ at salvation
Make me realize all that I am, baby
You put the light inside this man

You’re so fine, lose my mind
And the world seems to disappear
All the problems, all the fears
And the world seems to disappear

You’re so fine, lose my mind
And the world seems to disappear
All the problems, all the fears
And the world seems to disappear

You’re so fine, lose my mind
And the world seems to disappear
All the problems, all the fears
And the world seems to disappear

I love this song . Please also see a lovely tribute by Tina Hutchence : http://www.michaelhutchence.org/index.php?page=234

The good and great lighten the world in a short space and then go to a better world..

Goodnight friends! Hope like this as much enjoyed sharing! Yes this is for women 🙂 Michael Hutchence!!! Hope you have a nice day! Thank you!

10 fun facts we bet you didn’t know about Thanksgiving

10 fun facts we bet you didn’t know about Thanksgiving

 Today is Thanksgiving day in America. I want to wish every one happy thanksgiving! There are so many who are dear to me who live in America, my friends, my  brother and the most beautiful people have met . The smartest people know are in America. In my opinion is the smartest country in the world in spite of the gun problem or the drug problem. Am grateful to know these beautiful people and gather from this CNN article Benjamin Franklin thought ” Eagle” had “”bad moral character” and that Sarah Josepha Hale wrote ” “Mary had a Little Lamb.” 🙂 

So all in gratitude.Goodnight! Hope you have a lovely day! Happy thanksgiving!

Shhh! Take a peek at the world’s most exquisite libraries

28 Nov

Shhh! Take a peek at the world’s most exquisite libraries

I spent my early years in a gated township forty miles from Mumbai ( Bombay) and the township had a singular public library. My friend and me would cycle ( bike) to go there and spend time reading. This is a favorite memory and love libraries. I still look for a library in a new city. I guess coffee shops and book stores have taken over..

Please see this wonderful pictorial tour of great libraries from South Korea, China, US to Europe. The Architecture, splendor and historical significance is a sight to behold. My favorite ones among these are dmont Abbey library, Admont, Austria,Mafra Palace Library, Mafra, Portugal and The Escorial Library, San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Spain. European architecture is so special but all of them are brilliant.

Hope you like this magnificent pictorial tour of great libraries.  Good night friends! Hope you have a nice day. Thank you!

” He allowed hi…

27 Nov

” He allowed himself to be swayed by his conviction that human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.”

― Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

Some have wonderful linear path. Amma, Appa and Muthu. Muthu finishes graduate school. Gets a good job marries Rajlaxmi 🙂 That is very good and so wish was like that.. ( The south Indian names are just anecdotal, Amma ( mom), Appa ( Dad), Muthu ( was my childhood friends name) 🙂

For many of us ” life obliges over and over again to give birth to themselves “, may be for all of us at some stage, sometimes its  love, sometimes a friend, sometimes our own soul, that is a catalyst. The great author is so right. As for myself just want to go back to that boy in school with unspoilt possibilities and dreams. Goodnight friends! Hope you have a nice day! Much love and Thank you!

Passenger : Holes

26 Nov

My friend introduced me to Passenger and have come to really like the music. Hope you like the music.

Holes :

I know a man with nothing in his hands, nothing but a rolling stone
He told me about when his house burnt down, he lost everything he owned
He lay asleep for six whole weeks, they were gonna ask his mother to choose
When he woke up with nothing he said I’ll tell you something
When you’ve got nothing, you’ve got nothing to lose

Now I’ve got a hole in my pocket, a hole in my shirt, a whole lot of trouble, he said
But now the money is gone, life carries on and I miss it like a hole in the head

I know a woman with kids around her ankles and a baby on her lap
She said one day her husband went to get a paper and the mother fucker never came back
Mortgage to pay and four kids to raise, keeping the wolf from the door
She said the wolf’s just a puppy and the door’s double locked so why you gotta worry me for

Now he left a in hole in my heart a hole in a promise a hole on the side of my bed
Oh now that he’s gone well life carries on and I miss him like a hole in the head
Well sometimes you can’t change and you can’t choose
And sometimes it seems you gain less than you lose
Now we’ve got holes in our hearts, yeah we’ve got holes in our lives
Where we’ve got holes, we’ve got holes but we carry on

Where we’ve got holes in our hearts, yeah we’ve got holes in our lives
Where we’ve got holes, we’ve got holes but we carry on
Said we’ve got holes in our hearts, yeah we’ve got holes in our lives
Where we’ve got holes, we’ve got holes but we carry on

Said we’ve got holes in our hearts, we’ve got holes in our lives
We’ve got holes, we’ve got holes but we carry on
Said we’ve got holes in our hearts, we’ve got holes in our lives
We’ve got holes, we’ve got holes but we carry on

Said we’ve got holes in our hearts, yeah we’ve got holes in our lives
Where we’ve got holes, we’ve got holes but we carry on….

Today went to Mother Teresa home and the good sister( nun) asked me why am not married ? never thought good sister would ask me this profound question 🙂 but was in good faith, stumbled something and told her to pray for me also 🙂 came back with a conclusion , women are geniuses. I promised will return.

So till you come over dear one, “we’ve got holes in our hearts, we’ve got holes in our lives”..:)

Good night friends! Hope you like this song and hope you have a lovely day! Thank you!

Queen : Love of My Life

25 Nov

So I post this for love of my life 🙂

I always felt women sing better than men, Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin but just see Freddie Mercury, no one can sing better or more beautifully..

Please see this beautiful rendition.

Love Of My Life:

Love of my life – you’ve hurt me
You’ve broken my heart and now you leave me
Love of my life can’t you see
Bring it back, bring it back
Don’t take it away from me, because you don’t know
What it means to me

Love of my life don’t leave me
You’ve taken my love, (all of my love) and now desert me
Love of my life can’t you see
(Please bring it back) bring it back, bring it back (back)
Don’t take it away from me (take it away from me)
Because you don’t know (ooh ooh ooh know means to me)
What it means to me

Who will remember
When this is blown over
And everything’s all by the way – (ooh yeah)
When I grow older
I will be there at your side to remind you
How I still love you – (i still love you)

Ooh, back – hurry back
Please bring it back home to me
Because you don’t know what it means to me
Love of my life
Love of my life
Ooh, ooh

Hurry back, hurry back, don’t take it away from me, because you don’t know what it means to me..:)

Goodnight friends! Freddie Mercury – Best singer and performer!!! Hope you have a nice day! Thank you!

Leonard Cohen : If It Be Your Will (live 1985)

24 Nov

I guess my posts are getting little Leonard Cohen top heavy but then very much want to share this beautiful rendition with Anjani Thomas, who is Leonard’s partner. I love this song. Please see the introduction ” I don’t know which side anybody is on, I don’t really care, there is a moment we have to transcend the side we are on, understand that we are creatures of higher order, doesn’t mean i don’t wish you courage in your struggle, there is on both sides of this struggle men of goodwill, that is important to remember, some struggling for freedom and some for safety, solemn testimony of that unbroken faith that binds generations one to another…”

If It Be Your Will :

If it be your will
That I speak no more
And my voice be still
As it was before
I will speak no more
I shall abide until
I am spoken for
If it be your will

If it be your will
That a voice be true
From this broken hill
I will sing to you
From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will
To let me sing
From this broken hill
All your praises they shall ring
If it be your will
To let me sing

If it be your will
If there is a choice
Let the rivers fill
Let the hills rejoice
Let your mercy spill
On all these burning hearts in hell
If it be your will
To make us well

And draw us near
And bind us tight
All your children here
In their rags of light
In our rags of light
All dressed to kill
And end this night
If it be your will

If it be your will.

Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen are all great songwriters but don’t know any one who writes likes that ..

We all encounter moments of silences, but then we must remember “there are on both sides of this struggle men of goodwill “.

There is also a most beautiful rendition of this song by The Webb Sisters

Hope you like this song dear friends. Have a nice day! Thank you!
