Adding 3 gems today Sept. 10 2019:

I still love these songs from when I was 8-10 years old, her voice and the melancholy I felt at the time and lately. Her voice was angelic when I heard it through the radio as a kid.

 

1968 - Mary Hopkins - Those were the days

 

1969 Mary Hopkins - Goodbye

 

1970 - Mary Hopkins - Knock Knock Who's There

 @IngunI know that Cat Stevens song because of my dad...

I heard a lot of old songs  because my dad used to listen and I liked a lot of music... this one included...

But one of the old songs that I liked the most is called: Bridge Over Troubled Water.

 

It was on a CD my father used to listen to...


In the beginning I liked it because of the melody  and when I saw the translation I liked it even more...


There was a time when I didn't have any friends... and then I kept imagining what it would be like to have a best friend... and when I heard that song... I imagined it would be the way that music talks... IoI

So nice that you got to know some good old music. Also my sons who are in the mid twenties has found resonance with a lot of the music from the 60', 70' and enjoy it. They got curious after hearing my enthusiasm and me playing it.

I also like the song 'Bridge over troubled water', by Simon & Garfunkel, a lot!

Here's another great one from Cat Stevens that really struck me when I heard it in the Ricky Gervais film "The Invention of Lying". The version in the film was a cover by Elvis Costello recorded for the film. 

 

 

Lyrics:

 

Quote

Sitting - Cat Stevens

Oh I'm on my way, I know I am
Somewhere not so far from here 
All I know is all I feel right now
I feel the power growing in my hair

 

Sitting on my own, not by myself
Everybody's here with me
I don't need to touch your face to know
And I don't need to use my eyes to see

 

I keep on wondering if I sleep too long
Will I always wake up the same or so? 
I keep on wondering if I sleep too long
Will I even wake up again or something?

 

Oh I'm on my way, I know I am
But times there were when thought not 
Bleeding half my soul in bad company
I thank the moon I had the strength to stop

 

I'm not making love to anyone's wishes
Only for that guide I see 
'Cause when I'm dead and lowered low in my grave
That's gonna be the only thing that's left of me

 

And if I make it to the waterside
Will I even find me a boat or so? 
And I if I make it to the waterside
I'll be sure to write you note or something

 

Oh I'm on my way, I know I am
Somewhere not so far from here
All I know is all I feel right now
I feel the power growing in my hair

 

Oh life is like a maze of doors 
And they all open from the side you're on
Just keep on pushing hard boy, try as you may
You're going to wind up where you started from
You're going to wind up where you started from

I have added 3 more songs up there today that I have loved since I was a kid, and especially have listened to a lot lately. Big hits they were at the time.
