The Best Song you Heard Today?

Discussion in 'Books, Music and Television' started by christianvolume, Nov 9, 2010.

  1. I usually have pandora going on in the background as I am working. Usually Once a Day I hear a new band or new song and am like "sweet thats a good song!"

    What about you, here anything awesome today!?!?

    Today, I heard Grey Holiday - You Belong to Me

    It sounded familiar and then I realized I heard it on the fireproof movie
  2. mines was, your love by brandon heath
  3. ya, thats a great song
  4. Today I;ve gone back to a couple of my old favourites that both use the same tune

    Stenka Rasin

    and the Carnival is over which used the Russian tune althought the tales are different. Stenaka Rasin throws his gf into the Volga River!
  5. Also, thinking of relationship threads here took my to Lyin Eyes by the Eagles.. I guess we could all go one way about affairs, etc. but I think it's quite a tragic tale of the messes people can make.
  6. Oh and the sad Welsh one Bugeilio'r Gwenith Gwyn (watching the white wheat)

    From Wikipedia:
    I am a young and foolish lad
    Who lives as I please
    I shepherd the white wheat
    And another reaps it.
    Why not follow me
    Some day after another?
    Because I see you little lass,
    Purer and purer each day!
    Purer and purer are you every day,
    Or I with my faith more foolish,
    For the One that created your countenance,
    Be compassionate towards me now.
    Lift your head, look over there,
    Give me your dear white hand;
    Because in your lovely breast
    Is the key to the lock of my heart!
    Whilst the water of the sea is salty,
    And whilst my hair is growing
    And whilst there is a heart in my bosom
    I will be faithful to you:
    Tell me the truth in secret
    And give under seal your answers,
    Whether it is I or another, Ann,
    Which is preferred by your heart.
  7. Today as I was reminded eleswhere of a beautiful place in Scotland, Glen Coe i've been listening to this
  8. A food shop chat elsewhere also took me to the late Kirsty. She is perhaps best known for Fairy Tales of New York. A song some might object to the language used so I will not link but for those that bother to listen to the words, it includes false hopes and false dreams. It is sad really.
  9. Better append that with this with good old Cait
  10. Kirsty by was the daughter of Ewan McColl (formerly Jimmy Miller) read about him and folk here
  11. Not sure why I am in Welsh (a language I don't speak but I lived there and mouthed words in school) but I also seem to be on mfanwy today

    Why is it anger, O Myfanwy,
    That fills your eyes so dark and clear?
    Your gentle cheeks, O sweet Myfanwy,
    Why blush they not when I draw near?
    Where is the smile that once most tender
    Kindled my love so fond, so true?
    Where is the sound of your sweet words,
    That drew my heart to follow you?

    O MyfanwyWhat have I done, O my Myfanwy,​

    To earn your frown? What is my blame?
    Was it just play, my sweet Myfanwy,
    To set your poet's love aflame?
    You truly once to me were promised,
    Is it too much to keep your part?
    I wish no more your hand, Myfanwy,
    If I no longer have your heart.

    Myfanwy, may you spend your lifetime
    beneath the midday sunshine's glow,
    And on your cheeks O may the roses
    Dance for a hundred years or so.
    Forget now all the words of promise
    You made to one who loved you well,
    Give me your hand, my sweet Myfanwy,
    But one last time, to say "farewell".
  12. Thanks for sharing all your daily songs :)
  13. Who Am I - Casting Crowns​

  14. I Give You Glory
    by Klaus Kuehn.
  15. Haven't heard of Klaus Keuhn, Will have to check that out
  16. 'Fileuse' by French composer Gabriel Fauré, from his opera/suite Pelléas et Mélisande.
    And a piece from Serge Lifar's ballet, Suite en Blanc, for the variation of La Cigarette, which supposedly comes from Édouard Lalo's Namouna, but I have been unable to identify the exact piece (unless it is hiding from me).
    Here it is, it's very beautiful (I downloaded the video for safe-keeping since YouTube seems to be on a 'delete every dang thing that everybody really likes' rampage...):
