Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on enero 23, 2010 by abel63

Me gusta mucho esta canción, en Guatemala tuvimos la dicha de escucharla, fue lanzada en 1976.

 


Howzat
Sherbet

1976

.
You told me I was the one
The only one who got your head undone
And for a while I believe the line that you spun
But I've been lookin' at you
Lookin’ closely at the things you do
I didn't see you the way you wanted me to

Howzat
You messed about
I caught you out
Howzat
Now that I've found where you're at
It's goodbye
Well Howzat
It’s goodbye

You only came for a smile
Even though you're really not my style
I didn't think that you'd run me around like you do

Howzat
You messed about
I caught you out
Howzat
Now that I've found where you're at
It's goodbye
Well Howzat
It’s goodbye

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah

Well I've been lookin' at you
(I’ll tell you what I see)
Looking closely at the things you do
(No you can’t fool me)
I didn't see you the way
You wanted me to

Howzat
You messed about
I caught you out
Howzat
Now that I've found where you're at
It's goodbye

Howzat
You messed about
I caught you out
Howzat
Now that I've found where you're at
It's goodbye
Well Howzat
Goodbye

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
(Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye)

Come On, Let’s Go – Ritchie Valens / The McCoys

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on enero 23, 2010 by abel63

Esta es una de esas canciones que me hacen brincar de gusto cuando la estoy escuchando.

Originalmente la lanzó Ritchie Valens en 1958 pero en 1966 el grupo The McCoys la volvió a lanzar con un estilo muy particular, de hecho me gusta más la versión de ellos pero no quiere decir que no me encante también la versión de Ritchie Valens.

The McCoys

Come On, Let's Go
Ritchie Valens, The McCoys

Well, come on
Let's go, let's go
Let's go, little darling

Then tell me that
You'll never leave me
Come on, come on
Let's go again, again and again

Well, now swing me
Swing me all the way down girl
Come on, let's go
Little darling
Let's go, let's go
Again once more

Well, I love you so, oh girl
And I'll never let you go
Come on, baby, so
Oh, pretty baby, I love you so

Let's go, let's go
Let's go, little sweetheart
And tell me we can always be together
Come on, come on, let's go again

I love you so, yeah
And I'll never let you go
Come on, baby, so
Oh, pretty baby, I love you so

Let's go, let's go
Let's go, little darlin'
We're dancin' and we'll be long here

Come on, come on
Let's go again, again and again and again
Again, again and again and again
Again, again and again and again….

(Last Night) I Didn’t Get To Sleep At All (Anoche no pude conciliar el sueño) – The 5th Dimension

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on enero 17, 2010 by abel63

Esta es una preciosa canción, Es de aquellas que la escucho y la escucho y no me aburre.
Fue lanzada a principios de los 70's en el L.P. "Individually & Collectively"


(Last Night) I Didn't Get To Sleep At All
The 5th Dimension

1972

.     
Last night, I didn't get
To sleep at all, no, no

I lay awake and watched
Until the morning light
Washed away the darkness
Of the lonely night
(Lonely night)

Oh, and last night, I got
To thinking maybe I, I, I

Should call you up and
Just forget my foolish pride
I heard your number ringing
I went cold inside
And last night I didn't
Get to sleep at all

I know it's not my fault
I did my best
God knows this heart of mine
Could use a rest

But more and more, I find
The dreams I left behind
Are somehow too real to replace

Oh, and last night I didn't
Get to sleep at all, no, no

The sleeping pill I took
Was just a waste of time
I couldn't close my eyes
'Cause you were on my mind

And last night I
Didn't get to sleep
Didn't get to sleep
No, I didn't get to sleep at all

But more and more, I find
The dreams I left behind
Are somehow too real to replace

Oh, last night I didn't get
To sleep at all no, no

The sleeping pill I took
Was just a waste of time
I couldn't close my eyes
'Cause you were on my mind

And last night I
Didn't get to sleep
Didn't get to sleep
No, I didn't get to sleep at all

No, no, no
No, no, no

Last night I didn't get
To sleep at all, no, no
Last night I didn't get
To sleep at all, oh, oh…

Mr. Telephone Man (Señor Teléfonista) – New Edition

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on enero 17, 2010 by abel63

A mediados de los 80's, el grupo "New Edition" lanzó varias canciones muy bonitas, personalmente me gustaron varias y principalmente "Mr. Telephone Man".


Mr. Telephone Man
New Edition

1984

Mr. telephone man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click everytime

Mr. telephone man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click everytime

When I dial 611 to pay a service
She said
Hello, may I help you please?
I told her
Something must be wrong
With my phone
'Cause my baby wouldn't
Hang up on me

Mr. telephone man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click everytime

Mr. telephone man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click everytime

She let the phone ring 20 times
Before she answered
Let me tell you what happen then
A minute later
I got the operator saying
Please hang up
And place your call again, baby

Mr. telephone man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click everytime

Mr. telephone man
Somethin's wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click everytime

Some strange man is on the telephone
Keeps telling me my baby ain't home
She ain't got no party line
This situation's blowin' my mind
Oh! I just can't take this anymore

Please operator
See what you can do
I dialed the right number
But I still couldn't get though
Would you just check the line
Just one more time if you can
I'm pretty sure my phone
Wouldnt be answered by no man

Mr. telephone man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click everytime

Mr. telephone man
Somethin's wrong with my line
I try to dial her number
I get a click everytime

Must be a bad connection
I give 'em my love and affection
I just can't take this no more
This situation's blowin' my mind
Can't get my baby on the line

I try dialing information
I can't get no cooperation
System on the phone
Telling me my baby ain't at home
Ahh, baby
I just can't take this anymore

Help me out
Please Mr. telephone man
Help me out
Please Mr. telephone man.

Rock Me Gently (Meceme suavemente) – Andy Kim

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on enero 17, 2010 by abel63

La música de  Andy Kim, me hacen recordar a la "Radio Progreso", 580 A.M., Guatemala, esta canción está entre mis favoritas.


Rock Me Gently
by Andy Kim

1974

Ain't it good, ain't it right
That you are with me here tonight
The music playing
Our bodies swaying in time
(In time, in time, in time)

Touching you
So warm and tender
Lord, I feel such
A sweet surrender
Beautiful is the dream
That makes you mine

Rock me gently
Rock me slowly
Take it easy, don't you know
That I have never been
Loved like this before

Baby, baby
Rock me gently, rock me slowly
Take it easy, don't you know
That I have never been
Loved like this before

Oh, my darling, oh, my baby
You got the moves
That drive me crazy
And on your face
I see a trace of love
(Of love, of love, of love)

Come hold me close
Don't let me go
I need you, honey
I love you so
You were made for me
By the stars above

Oooh, rock me gently
Rock me slowly
Take it easy, don't you know
That I have never been
Loved like this before

And baby, baby
Rock me gently, rock me slowly
Take it easy, don't you know
That I have never
Been loved like this before

Rock me gently, rock me slowly
Take it easy, don't you know
That I have never been
Loved like this before

Ain't it good, ain't it right
That you are with me
Here tonight

Rock me gently, rock me slowly
Take it easy, don't you know
That I have never been
Loved like this before

Baby, baby, rock me gently
Rock me slowly
Take it easy, don't you know
That I have never been
Loved like this before

Psychotic Reaction (Reacción Sicopática) – Count Five

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on enero 16, 2010 by abel63

Me gusta mucho el sonido de este grupo, bastante rustico, me encanta escuchar el sonido de la batería , la guitarra y todos los demás instrumentos que logro distinguir, era una canción que escuchaba bastante en "Top 9-40" de "La Voz Del Hogar" 940 A.M. Guatemala.
Fue el unico éxito del grupo.


Psychotic Reaction
Count Five
1966

I feel depressed
I feel so bad
‘Cause you're the best girl
That I've ever had

I can't get your love
I can't get affection
Oh, little girl
Psychotic reaction

And it feels like this …

– Interlude –

I feel so lonely
Night and day
I can't get your love
I must stay away

Well, I need you, girl
By my side
Oh, little girl
Would you like
To take a ride, now

I can't get your love
I can't get satisfaction
Oh, little girl
Psychotic reaction

Playground in my mind – Clint Holmes / Juegos en mi mente – Roberto Jordán

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on enero 16, 2010 by abel63

Muy bonita versión que escuchamos con "Roberto Jordán", la canción fue originalmente intepretada por "Clint Holmes. La verdad es que escuché más la versión de Roberto Jordán, gracias a Top 9-40 de "La Voz Del Hogar" conocí la versión en inglés. Todo esto es recuerdo de mi "chiquititud" o sea cuando estaba "chiquito" o "patojo" porque la canción es de 1973.

Playground In My Mind
Clint Holmes

1973

When this old world gets me down
And there's no love to be found
I close my eyes and soon I find
I'm in a playground in my mind

Where the children laugh
And the children play
And we sing a song all day

My name is Michael
I've got a nickel
I've got a nickel shiny and new
I'm gonna buy me all kinds of candy
That's what I'm gonna do

In the wonders that I find
In the playground in my mind
In a world that used to be
Close your eyes and follow me

Where the children laugh
And the children play
And we'll sing a song all day

My girl is Cindy
When we get married
We're gonna have a baby or two
We're gonna let them visit their grandma
That's what were gonna do

See the little children
Living in a world
That I left behind
Happy little children
In the playground in my mind

See the little children
See how they play so happy
In the playground in my mind

La la la…..
