Blues In The Night

I went to YouTube in search for Blues In The Night, a song suggested by a friend of mine.

Blues In The Night from a woman’s point of view: Katie Melua (live AVO Session), there’s a harmonica which I love. I also found Anne Shelton and Ella Fitzgerald (with a sax player).

Blues In The Night from a man’s point of view: Frank Sinatra.

I also found an intrumental version, Blues in the Night, on Tenor Sax.

Is That All There Is?

There’s a video below the lyrics.

Lyrics

SPOKEN:
I remember when I was a very little girl, our house caught on fire.
I’ll never forget the look on my father’s face as he gathered me up
in his arms and raced through the burning building out to the pavement.
I stood there shivering in my pajamas and watched the whole world go up in flames.
And when it was all over I said to myself, “Is that all there is to a fire”

SUNG:
Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
If that’s all there is

SPOKEN:
And when I was 12 years old, my father took me to a circus, the greatest show on earth.
There were clowns and elephants and dancing bears.
And a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads.
And so I sat there watching the marvelous spectacle.
I had the feeling that something was missing.
I don’t know what, but when it was over,
I said to myself, “is that all there is to a circus?

SUNG:
Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
If that’s all there is

SPOKEN:
Then I fell in love, head over heels in love, with the most wonderful boy in the world.
We would take long walks by the river or just sit for hours gazing into each other’s eyes.
We were so very much in love.
Then one day he went away and I thought I’d die, but I didn’t,
and when I didn’t I said to myself, “is that all there is to love?”

SUNG:
Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing

SPOKEN:
I know what you must be saying to yourselves,
if that’s the way she feels about it why doesn’t she just end it all?
Oh, no, not me. I’m in no hurry for that final disappointment,
for I know just as well as I’m standing here talking to you,
when that final moment comes and I’m breathing my lst breath, I’ll be saying to myself

SUNG:
Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
If that’s all there is

If you want my body – Hanne Boel

It is the title of a song on the CD “Dark Passion” with one of my favourite singers, Hanne Boel from Denmark. Part of the lyrics goes like this: “If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind”. That rings true to me too. There’s a video below the lyrics.

Lyrics

I’m aware of you, see you around sometimes,
Casual talk and neither one ever steps over the line.
But it’s crossed my mind, it’s crossed my mind.
And I might sometimes, except for the fact that,
If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind,
If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind.

Got your high position, and your BMW
You got big money ways and baby that’s cool
But you ain’t playing with a fool
Oh I’ve paid the price, and I’m feeling nice, about myself,
And I don’t think twice, about telling you that,
If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind,
If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind.

Oh, I’m a sensitive girl,
And I love it when it’s feeling right,
And I could take you to paradise
If only just for the night
Youll remember it, you’ll remember it,
But don’t forget, the fact still remains,

If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind,
If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind.
