Versión español –> Los Mismos – Congratulations

Congratulations
Cliff Richard

[CHORUS]
Congratulations and celebrations
When I tell everyone that
You're in love with me
Congratulations and jubilations
I want the world to know
I'm happy as can be

Who would believe that
I could be happy and contented
I used to think that happiness
Hadn't been invented

But that was in the bad old days
Before I met you
When I let you walk into my heart

[repeat CHORUS]

I was afraid to think that
You thought you were above me
That I was only fooling myself
To think you'd love me

But then tonight you said
You couldn't live without me
That round about me
You wanted to stay

[repeat CHORUS]

Congratulations and jubilations
I want the world to know
I'm happy as can be
I want the world to know
I'm happy as can be

Alone Again (Naturally) – Gilbert O’Sullivan — Solo Otra vez – Los Tres Tigres Tigres

Versión inglés –> Gilbert O'Sullivan – Alone Again  (Naturally)
Versión español –> Los Tres Tristes Tigres – Solo Otra Vez (naturalmente)


Alone Again (Naturally)
Gilbert O'Sullivan
(Raymond O'Sullivan)
          -o-
In a little while from now
If I`m not feeling any less sour
I promised myself to treat myself
And visit a nearby tower

And climbing to the top
I`d throw myself off in an
Effort to make clear to whoever
What it`s like when you`re shattered

Left standing in a lurch
At a church with people saying
My God, that`s tough
She stood him up
No point in us remaining

I may as well go home
Decided on my own
Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday
I was cheerful, bright and gay
Looking forward to
And who wouldn`t do
The role I was about to play

But as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so
Much as a mere touch
Put me into little pieces

Leaving me to doubt
All about God and his mercy
Oh, if he really does exist
Why did he desert me

In my hour of need
I truly am, indeed
Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that
There are more hearts
Broken in the world
That can`t be mended
Left unattended
What do we do
What do we do

Alone again, naturally

Looking back over the years
And whatever else has occurred
I remember I cried
When my father died
Never wishing to hide the tears

At sixty-five years old
My mother, God rest her soul
Couldn`t understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken

Leaving her to start
With a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken

And when she passed away
I cried and cried all day
Alone again, naturally
Alone again, naturally

Matrimony – Gilbert O’Sullivan — Los Tres Tristes Tigres – Matrimonio

Gilbert O'Sullivan - Matrimony
Gilbert O’Sullivan


Matrimony
Gilbert O'sullivan

I've no wish to hurry you luv
But have you seen the time
It's quarter to ten and we're supposed to be there
At nine
I don't think the registrar
Will be very pleased
When we show up an hour late
Like two frozen peas
Both now facing for the first time
Presently and past
Something that begins with M
And ends in alas
More than not complete disaster
Even form the start
What could it be…
It's Matrimony

I know how you've dreamt about
Being walked down the aisle
But think of the money we'll save
And you'll see it's worthwhile
It won't please our mums and dads
But they don't even know,
Besides if they did what's the betting
They wouldn't even go
You and me are all that matters
Disregard the rest
Trust your soon to be old man
He knows what is best
Very shortly now there's going to be
An answer from you
Then one from me
That's matrimony

I'm truly grateful for the little things in life
That have made me so glad
Every other hour that I spend with you
Is not in the least bit sad
Quite the opposite in fact
And if you don't believe me
Here's the proof
Ask me if I and I'll say "Aye, I do"

You and me are all that matters
Disregard the rest
Trust your soon to be old man
He knows what is best
Very shortly now there's going to be
An answer from you
Then one from me
That's matrimony
Marriage-the joining together of the two people
For better or for worse Till death them do part
Ole!

Los Tres Tristes Tigres - Matrimonio

Swinging On A Star – Big Dee Irwin With Little Eva — Bailando Sobre Una Estrella – Juan Ramón

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on febrero 23, 2008 by abel63

La canción "Swinging on a star" la interpreto en 1944 Bing Crosby en la pelicula "Going my way", la canción ha sido cantada por muchos artistas.

Versión inglés   ->  Big Dee Irwin With Little Eva – Swinging On A Star
Versión español -> Juan Ramón – Bailando Sobre Una Estrella

Posición  # 38     May '63  Hot 100 Usa Chart

Swinging On A Star
Big Dee Irwin & Little Eva

Would you like to swing on a star
(Oh, oh, oh)
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
(Oh, oh, oh)

And be better off than you are
(Oh, oh, oh)
Or would you rather be a mule
(Yeah, yeah, talking 'bout a mule now)

A mule is an animal
With long funny ears
He kicks up at anything he hears
(Just like you, Dee)

His back is brawny
And his brain is weak
He's just plain stupid
With a stubborn streak

And by the way
If you hate to go to school
(Which I do)
You may grow up to be a mule
(I don't wanna grow up
And be a mule)

Well, would you like to
Swing on a star (okay)
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
(One moonbeam, two moonbeam)

And be better off than you are
(Oh, oh, oh)
Or would you rather be a pig
(Yeah, yeah, talking 'bout a pig now)

A pig is an animal
With dirt on his face (yeah)
His shoes are a terrible disgrace
(Look who's talking)

He's got no manners
When he eats his food
(You gobble)
He's fat and lazy and extremely rude

But if you don't care
A feather or a fig
(That's the truth)
You may grow up to be a pig
(Not if I can help it, baby)

Oh, oh, oh (oh, oh, oh)
Oh, oh, oh

Would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
You could be swinging on a star

Oh, oh, oh, yeah
We could be swinging on a star
Oh, oh, oh, yeah
We could be swinging on a star
Oh, oh, oh, yeah
We could be swinging on a star
Oh, oh, oh, yeah
We could be swinging on a star

Esta es la traducción de la canción

Te gustaría bailar en una estrella
Llevando rayos de luna en un jarro a tu casa
Y estar mejor de lo que estas
O acaso prefieres ser un burro

Un burro es un animal con orejas largas y graciosas
Patea todo lo que escucha
Su espalda es musculosa y su cerebro es débil
Es simplemente entupido con un pelo rebelde
Y a todo esto, si odias ir al colegio
Podrías crecer para ser un burro

Te gustaría bailar en una estrella
Llevando rayos de luna en un jarro a tu casa
Y estar mejor de lo que estas
O acaso prefieres ser un cerdo

Un cerdo es un animal con mugre en la cara
Sus zapatos son una desgracia terrible
No tiene modales cuando come su alimento
Es gordo y perezoso y extremadamente descortés
Pero si no te interese ni una pluma ni una higuera
Podrías crecer para ser un cerdo

Te gustaría bailar en una estrella
Llevando rayos de luna en un jarro a tu casa
Y estar mejor de lo que estas
O acaso prefieres ser un pez

Un pez no hace nada, solo nadar en un arroyo
Él no puede escribir su nombre ni leer un libro
Su único pensamiento es engañar a la gente
Y aunque es escurridizo, igual lo pillan
Y bien, si ese es el tipo de vida que quieres
Podrías crecer para ser un pez
Un nuevo tipo de pez escurridizo y saltarín

Y no todos los monos están en el zoológico
Todos los dais te encuentras con bastantes
Así que ves que todo depende de ti
Puedes ser mejor de lo que eres
Podrías bailar en una estrella

El sentido que tiene la canción al español no tiene relación alguna con la letra en inglés, unicamente se uso la música.

Save Your Kisses for Me The Brotherhood of Man — Guarda tus besos para mí – Los Mismos

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on febrero 21, 2008 by abel63

The Brotherhood of Man
En 1970 el productor y compositor Tony Hiller decidió crear un proyecto de pop al que llamó Brotherhood of Man.
El grupo sufrió a lo largo de su trayectoria múltiples cambios de formación. En sus inicios comenzó siendo un escaparate para la escritura de canciones de Hiller y Johnny Goodison, quien también había trabajado como productor a finales de los años 60.
Goodison, al contrario que Hiller, se integró en el proyecto como componente del grupo, acompañado en la primera encarnación por Tony Burrows, un avezado vocalista que había cantado con The Ivy League, Flowerpot Men o Edison Lightouse, Roger Greenaway, un compositor de éxito junto a Roger Cook, y dos cantantes femeninas de nombre Sue Glover y Sunny Leslie.

Ficharon por la Decca y en 1970 grabaron en Deram un single de éxito, “United we stand”. Más tarde, después de alcanzar resonancia con el tema “Where are you going to my love”, Burrows decidió abandonar el grupo, siendo sustituido por Hal Atkinson.

Tras un nuevo single, “Reach out your hand”, Hiller vio como se caía de la formación otro componente original, Roger Greenaway. Fue el momento de la entrada de Russell Stone.
Esta nueva formación no consiguió mantener las cotas comerciales de los sencillos iniciales por lo que la Decca decidió no renovar el contrato discográfico, lo que provocó la desbandada del grupo de Tony Hiller, que ahora solía grabar con músicos de sesión de manera independiente.

Los Brotherhood of Man volverían al primer plano del pop comercial cuando, representando a Gran Bretaña, consiguieron ganar en 1976 el Festival de Eurovisión con la canción “Save your kisses for me”. En este momento el grupo estaba compuesto por Martin Lee, Lee Sheriden, Nickey Stevens y Sandra Stevens.
Esta formación fue la más exitosa de la historia del grupo, ya que después de “Save your kisses for me” lograrían dos números 1 en el Reino Unido con los singles “Angelo” y “Figaro”, además de otros cortes bien recibidos, con un concepto muy a lo ABBA, como “My sweet Rosalie”, “Oh Boy (the mood I’m in)”, “Middle of the night” o “Beautiful lover”.

A comienzos de los años 80 Lee Sheriden dejó el grupo, hecho que provocó la entrada de Barry Upton. “Lightnin Flash”, aparecida en 1982, sería la última canción de renombre de los Brotherhood of Man.

Save Your Kisses For Me
Brotherhood of Man
(Hiller/Sheridan/Lee)

Though it hurts to go away
It's impossible to stay
But there's one thing I must say before I go
I love You –you know
I'll be thinking of You in most everything I do
Now the time is moving on
And I really should be gone
But You keep me hanging on for one more smile
I love You –all the while
With your cute little way
Will You promise that you'll save your

Kisses for me
Save all your kisses for me
Bye bye baby bye bye
Don't cry honey don't cry
Gonna walk out the door
But I'll soon be back for more

Kisses for me
Save all your kisses for me
So long honey so long
Hang on baby hang on
Don't You dare me to stay
Cause You know I'll have to say

That I've got to work each day
And that's why I go away
But I count the seconds till I'm home with You
I love You –it's true
You're so cute honey -gee
Won't You save them up for me -your

Kisses for me
Save all your kisses for me
Bye bye baby bye bye
Don't cry honey don't cry
Gonna walk out the door
But I'll soon be back for more

Kisses for me
Save all your kisses for me
So long honey so long
Hang on baby hang on
Don't you dare me to stay
Cause you know
You've got to save your

Kisses for me
Save all your kisses for me
Bye bye baby bye bye
Don't cry honey don't cry
Won't You save them for me
Even though you're only three…

Puppet On A String – Sandie Shaw — Marionetas en la cuerda – Sandie Shaw — Caravelli

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on febrero 20, 2008 by abel63

La versión instrumental de Marionetas en la cuerda interpretada por la orquesta de " Caravelli " es un de mis favoritas, también lo son las versiones en inglés y español interpretadas por " Sandie Shaw "

Sandie Shaw
Puppet on a string

I wonder if one day that, you'll say that, you care
If you say you love me madly I'll gladly be there
Like a puppet on a string

Love is just like a merry-go-round
With all the fun of the fair
One day I'm feeling down on the ground
Then I'm up in the air
Are you leading me on
Tomorrow will you be gone

I wonder if one day that, you'll say that, you care
If you say you love me madly I'll gladly be there
Like a puppet on a string

I may win on the round-a-bout
Then I'll lose on the swings
In or out there is never a doubt
Just who's pulling the strings
I'm all tied up in you
But where's it leading me to

I wonder if one day that, you'll say that, you care
If you say you love me madly I'll gladly be there
Like a puppet on a string

I wonder if one day that, you'll say that, you care
If you say you love me madly I'll gladly be there
Like a puppet on a string
Like a puppet on a string

Existe varias portadas para esta canción, a continuación algunas de ellas:

Sandie Shaw - Marionetas en la cueda (2)Sandie Shaw - Marionetas en la cuerda (3)Sandie Shaw - Puppet on a StringSandie Shaw - Puppet On A String (Pye)Sandie Shaw - Puppet on a string (Pye) 2

Can’t Take My Eyes off You – Frankie Valli — No puedo quitar mis ojos de ti – Matt Monro

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on febrero 20, 2008 by abel63


Can't Take My Eyes Off You
Frankie Valli

You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.
You'd be like Heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

Pardon the way that I stare.
There's nothing else to compare.
The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak,
But if you feel like I feel,
Please let me know that it's real.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

I love you, baby,
And if it's quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm a lonely night.
I love you, baby.
Trust in me when I say:
Oh, pretty baby,
Don't bring me down, I pray.
Oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay
And let me love you, baby.
Let me love you.

You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.
You'd be like Heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

I love you, baby,
And if it's quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm a lonely night.
I love you, baby.
Trust in me when I say:
Oh, pretty baby,
Don't bring me down, I pray.
Oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay..
