Dancing in the Moonlight

I haven't found the vocal I like yet. So temporarily I give this piano cover.

I consider this music and lyrics to be full of the same light, bright and sparkling mood as this picture is full of:

song by King Harvest

We get it almost every night
and when that moon gets big and bright
it's supernatural delight
everybody was dancin' in the moonlight

Everybody here is outta' sight
they don't bark and don't bite
they keep things loose, they keep things alight
everybody was dancin' in the moonlight

Dancin' in the moonlight
everybody feelin' warm, and right
it's such a fine and natural sight
everybody's dancin' in the moonlight

We like our fun and we never fight
you can't dance and stay uptight
it's supernatural delight
everybody was dancin' in the moonlight

Seaside Meditation (soft pastel painting by AlisaPaints)




Deep down in the depths of forgotten dreams
So far away so long ago it seems
The memory comes of a distant beach
Pale sand stretching far from reach
It was then I found my princess of the sand.

As I traced the foam, peebles beneath my feet
I looked behind, I saw this one so sweet
She came to me and I saw in her eyes
The heavy toll of a thousand eyes
I called her my princess of the sand.

She stared at me and my mind was in a maze
As we moved along in a summer sea-dream haze
She moved her mouth but there came no sound
The message she brought can never be found
But I called her my princess of the sand.

One moment we walked with the night breeze in our face
Then I looked, she'd gone. of her presence there was no trace
Where she went or came from who can know
Or if she'll ever return to help me know
Who she is, my princess of the sand.

Sometime when the summer nights come back
I'll go back to the sea, follow that sandy track
I'll look around, hope to find
That strange young dream, close behind
I'll call her my princess of the sand.

The Limit to Your Love

lizardiecom
Very strange and unusual song. It is really strange, but I was caught in a trap by it)))

Really strange music video and the voice itself of James Blake.
Tender and soft cover by Feist.

in one of the comments it is written:
feist's version makes me want to live for my girlfriend.

james blake's version makes me want to die for her...

somebody adds:

it could be nice if Feist and James Blake sang together!


As for me I have a strong wish to illustrate this song like this:

by James Blake

There’s a limit to your love
Like a waterfall in slow motion
Like a map with no ocean
There’s a limit to your love
Your love, your love, your love

There’s a limit to you care
So carelessly there, is it truth or dare
There’s a limit to your care
There’s a limit to your love
Like a waterfall in slow motion
Like a map with no ocean
There’s a limit to your love
Your love, your love, your love

There’s a limit to you care
So carelessly there, is it truth or dare
There’s a limit to your care

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Black bird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
all your life
you were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise,
You were only waiting for this moment to arise,
You were only waiting for this moment to arise


cover by Sarah MacLachlan


I also love the collage picture of the bird from Sarah's CD

3D drawings on the pavement

Now when you are familiar with the street artist and musician who performs Stairway to Heaven sitting on his little 3D island I'd like to introduce you another "3D pavement" designer.
His works are really cool.
If I organize a concert one day I would like to invite a guy like him to draw something special as a scene for musicians))
Here it is!

Today by Randy Sparks

really beautiful cover

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
Ill taste your strawberries, Ill drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, Today

Ill be a dandy, and Ill be a rover
Youll know who I am by the songs that I sing
Ill feast at your table, Ill sleep in your clover
Who cares what the morrow shall bring

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
Ill taste your strawberries, Ill drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, Today

I cant be contented with yesterdays glory
I cant live on promises winter to spring
Today is my moment, now is my story
Ill laugh and Ill cry and Ill sing

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
Ill taste your strawberries, Ill drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, Today

Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine
Ill taste your strawberries, Ill drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joy that is mine, Today

Teardrops on My Guitar by Taylor Swift
лиса
lizardiecom
Drew looks at me
I fake a smile so he won't see
What I want and I need
And everything that we should be

I'll bet she's beautiful
That girl he talks about
And she's got everything
That I have to live without

Drew talks to me
I laugh 'cause it's just so funny
I can't even see
Anyone when he's with me

He says he's so in love
He's finally got it right
I wonder if he knows
He's all I think about at night

He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing
Don't know why I do

Drew walks by me
Can he tell that I can't breathe?
And there he goes, so perfectly
The kind of flawless I wish I could be

She better hold him tight
Give him all her love
Look in those beautiful eyes
And know she's lucky 'cause

He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing
Don't know why I do

So I drive home alone
As I turn out the light
I'll put his picture down
And maybe get some sleep tonight

'Cuz he's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only one who's got enough of me to break my heart
He's the song in the car I keep singing
Don't know why I do

He's the time taken up but there's never enough
And he's all that I need to fall into
Drew looks at me
I fake a smile so he won't see

LIVE video

I'm almost sure that on this digital picture created by Charmed-Belle there is exactly Taylor Swift  and at the same time just a girl who is the character of this song.




I'd like to put here her own description:

I love this one soooo much. It's like my fave one. I believe I actually spent the most time on this one along side "Tell Me Why." When I heard "Teardrops on my Guitar" for the very first time, I thought waterfall coming out of a guitar, wierd huh I know but oh so cool. I have no clue why I was thinking nature goddess but I think it works pretty darn well, love it. Anyways, she seems so down in the song, i figured I would tell her you gotta have faith. Faith that the perfect one will come along, the one that will give you that fairytale ending, so if you look carefully on the guitarstrap on the right side there is the Japanese symbol for faith and on the left there is a pair of angel wings.

*note although noone can probably read it, the fretboard reads "And softly her teardrops fell"*


Also there is another good "illustration" to this song. It is the handmade lariat with Swarowski crystals as teardrops created by
lilyladyblue. As for me this necklace shows what's in the girl's heart and what is hidden behind the smile this song is about.

In Italy I have seen artists who decorated the pavement  with the help of ordinary chalks of different colors,
but this music video really impressed me. Street singer and artist made for himself a real magic island to sit upon while singing.

Girl from the North Country (Bob Dylan)

Very young Bob Dylan's video with Italian subtitles:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxfW8lKIYa0

I'd like to show you this little figure of the North Country Girl created by Andrey Sheshukov (I really don't know what was his idea, but as for me this girl is the perfect one from Bob Dylan's song):





Girl from the North Country

If you're traveling in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
For she was once a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm
When the rivers freeze and summer ends
Please see for me if she's wearing a coat so warm
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see from me if her hair hanging down
If it curls and flows all down her breast
Please see from me if her hair hanging down
That's the way I remember her best.

Well, if you're traveling in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Please say hello to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine.

If you're travelin' in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine.
