Japanese boy


Great hit from the early 80's by Aneka.

There's a Chinese version by famous Taiwan girl pop group, S.H.E. ,


He said that he loved me
never would go, oh oh, oh oh.
Now I find I'm sitting
here on my own, oh oh, oh oh.

Was it something I've said or done
That made him pack his bags up and r'un?
Could it be another he's found? -
It's breaking up the happy home.

Mister, can you tell me
where my love has gone?
He's a Japanese boy.
I woke up one morning and
my love was gone
Oh my Japanese boy
ooh I miss my Japanese boy.

People ask about him
every day, oh oh, oh oh.
Don't know what to tell them
what can I say? Oh oh oh

If only he would write me or call
A word of explanation that's all.
It would stop me climbing the wall. -
It's breaking up the happy home.

Mister, can you tell me
where my love has gone?
He's a Japanese boy.
I woke up one morning and
my love was gone
Oh my Japanese boy
ooh I miss my Japanese boy.

Was it something I've said or done
That made him pack his bags up and r'un?
Could it be another he's found? -
It's breaking up the happy home.

Mister, can you tell me
where my love has gone?
He's a Japanese boy.

Reggae - I Love It !!



Love this song!!

It was popular when I was like 13 years old and couldn't hear what they were singing; I thought they sang "I don't like cricket!"

They mean "like" is a weak word, instead of I Iike reggae they "love" it.

Fandango - A whiter shade of pale


Gary Brooker recalled the writing of the music : "I'd been listening to a lot of Classical music, and Jazz.
'A Whiter Shade Of Pale' seemed to be about two people, a relationship even. It's a memory. There was a leaving, and a sadness about it. To get the soul of those lyrics across vocally, to make people feel that, was quite an accomplishment.

When it came to me , I thought, 'Here's something.' I happened to be at the piano when I read them, already playing a musical idea. It fitted the lyrics within a couple of hours. Things can be gifted. If you trace the chordal element, it does a bar or two of Bach's 'Air On A G String' before it veers off.

That spark was all it took. I wasn't consciously combining Rock with Classical, it's just that Bach's music was in me."

Dedicated to my dear brother Nir Halfon and his family...

Don't Stop me Now

The song is used for a commercial VH1 also was used in the movie "Shaun of the Dead"

I'm on my knees Looking for the answer


The melodie is so beautiful. I can hear it every and every day.

Red it some place that this is Hunter S. Thompson's quote ,

"We are raising a generation of dancers".

That was meant to convey the message that the youth of America is starting to have the tendency of following somebody else's beat, rather than marching to the beat of their own drum.

I told the cops you wasnt here tonight
Messin around with me is gonna get you life
Oh yeah, yeah
But everytime I look into your eyes
Then its worth the sacrifice

Everytime You Go Away


This was a Hall & Oates song but Paul Young did it better.

What was so great about the 80s was that a traditional blues and R&B song like this could get lumped in with New Wave and still sound good alongside bands like The Cure, Thompson Twins, Psych Furs...

that was the beauty of that time in music...It was such a melting pot of styles and a great deal of it was incredible.

Careless Whisper - Rio 1991


One of the best performances George Michael has ever showed.

The melody is unique and the singer is awesome! nothing compares to those days..

I have'nt seen any version of Careless Whisper played by saxophonists such as these two guys on top and tenor, amazing!

They are to be congratulated and everyone should see this is more expensive is the top.

Suspicious Minds


great song from Elvis !!!

Elvis Presley was the first real rock and roll star. A white southerner who singing blues laced with country and country tinged with gospel, Presley brought together music from both sides of the color line.

Presley performed this music with a natural hip swiveling sexuality that made him a teen idol and a role model for generations of cool rebels.

Presley was repeatedly dismissed as vulgar, incompetent and a bad influence.

When they say ZEEEEEEEE you can feel a tranquilizing effect.

Notice that they are using the Zulu heritage to do a good song with Shaka Zulu rappresentation and the amazing voice of lady Smith Black Mambazo so many memories from

Crocodile Rock & Dr. Teeth


Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem are the house band on The Muppet Show.
They mostly stick to rock music, but they're capable of playing other styles, including jazz and (unwillingly) classical.
Although Dr. Teeth is the leader, he is not the only one to provide lead vocals.
Floyd Pepper is often a lead singer on songs, and Janice is lead singer on a handful of songs.






This next song is originally from Buck Owens and was a No. 1 hit in the country charts of the USA in 1964. One year later, 1965, the Beatles covered this song - and they did it very well. There also exists a version of Ringo Starr and Buck Owens together, recorded in the seventies.

Preston was one of the best Hammond/keyboard/Piano players ...

Folk Star Taylor Mitchell Killed By Coyotes!


Taylor Mitchell, 19, a rising star of the Canadian music scene, died in Halifax hospital yesterday after the normally shy animals attacked her as she hiked one of the most scenic trails in Cape Breton Park.

Taylor was such a young beatiful and talented girl.

we never know where our death will come from and when.

but still i agree you should never go deep in to woods especially in such a place where you know animals live in the wilderness.


RIP Taylor Mitchell'

Fresh & Lovely


I loved Kool & The Gang during their heyday.
They were true R&B legends indeed.

And I do agree that the music of the 80s ruled supreme.

The 80's were marked by numerous shing moments of many music icons such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Prince, George Michael, and many others.

Most of today's music is horrible garbage, like Miley Cyrus, Justin Beiber, Flo Rida, Taylor Swift, and the Jonas Brothers. Ugh!

Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves


Sonny & Cher proved one of the magical musical combinations of the mid '60s and one of the better rock-influenced MOR acts of the early '70s, their wisecracking repartee providing counterpoint to a series of adoring hit duets.

Cher and Tina are both amazing women overcome so much...

Just The Two Of Us



Grover Washington was credited with this song but he never composed or wrote this song.

Ralph McDonald, a writer and producer wrote this song with his partner Bill Salter.

Some editing and vocals was done by Bill WIthers...
I remember watching Bill Withers perform an acoustic version of "Just the Two of Us" during the Grammys in the early 80's.

It was GREAT !!

Carl - verses + "Gotta keep this lovin' good vibrations are happening with her" 1st time
Mike - "I'm pickin up good vibrations, she's givin' me exaltations" + "I don't know where but she sends me there"

Panic in the streets...


A story circulated as the basis for the song is that days before recording the song, Marr and Morrissey were listening to the radio when a news report announced the Chernobyl disaster.

Right after the report, the DJ played the song "I'm your man" by Wham .

Morrisey found himself saying, 'What the fuck does this got to do with people's lives?'".

"We hear about Chernobyl, then, seconds later, we're expected to jump around to 'I'm Your Man'".

The band even comissioned a t-shirt featuring Wright's portrait and the phrase "Hang the DJ!"

H o l i d a y !! No. 1 hit !!

here are the lyrics of No.1 hit in UK - Holiday by Dizzee Rascal...

In the first video ' he's talking about the song - nice...

In the second video - he is doing it live in V-Festival...

Holiday Lyrics :

Get your passport and your bikini
You need a holiday, come see me

I know you're tired of the same old scenery
And I could change all that so easily
Don't worry about a thing girl, take a chance
I'll take you to the South of France, like Cannes If anyone can I can
Or we can go shopping in Milan
I just hope you understand I hope you see it clear It really don't matter how far or near
Cus there's no distance that can stop my persistence
It's just a few days in the year
Plus I've got clout so let's ride out

We ain't gotta fly, we can just drive out

We can have a rave or we can hide out

I won't tell nobody let them find out
If you ain't doing nothing let's fly away Drive away, get away
We can go to the club or hide away

We can do what you want to, baby
If you ain't doing nothing let's fly away Drive away, take a holiday
We can go to the club or hide away

We can do what you want to, baby
Don't watch my passport photo,
I know I look a bit loco
And I know that my
Spanish is so-so
But let's try keep that on the low-low
Cus we're going Ibiza
I've got friends that really wanna meet ya
With champagne and a whole lot of love
It's all good darling in the Blue Marlin Ibiza And I'll never let your belly get empty
Even when your belly's full you're still sexy

We can ride speed boats, we can ride jet skis
I'll show you the time of your life if you let me
I just want to put a smile on your pretty face...

I first heard this song as background in the film "Frantic" with Harrison Ford - and I was hooked!!

For many years I have been a fan of Grace Jones, who is an icon for the gay community.

This song is myone of the classics in the soundtrack industry.

I hear it over and over and it doesn't get old.

I gotta feeling - Home Video



This video is the best ever!

The 2 girls did a great job! good song and good video I love it!

they worked rly hard and they ended making an awesome job..

It is amazing!

How does it feel ?


How does it feel
To treat me like you do
When you've laid laid your hands upon me
And told me who you are

I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard your words
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how do I feel

Those who came before me
Lived through their vocations
From the past until completion
They will turn away no more

And I still find it so hard
To say what I need to say
But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me
Just how I should feel today

I see a ship in the harbor
I can and shall obey
But if it wasn't for your misfortunes
I'd be a heavenly person today

And I thought I was mistaken
And I thought I heard you speak
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how should I feel

Now I stand here waiting

I thought I told you to leave me
While I walked down to the beach
Tell me how does it feel
When your heart grows cold
