HOW MANY TEARDROPS

LOU CHRISTIE

...y vamos a seguir con voces llamativas,como la de Lou Christie,otro gran artista nacido un 19 de Febrero de 1943.Su verdadero nombre es Lugee Alfredo
Giovanni Sacco y nacio en Glennwillard,Pennsylvania,aunque se crio en los suburbios de Pittsburgh.De padre italiano y madre polaca,Christie viajo a Nueva York y alli se graduo en la Moon High School,en donde hizo sus primeros pinitos en el coro.Despues trabajo con una mujer misteriosa llamada Twyla Herbert,que era quien le escribia los textos de las canciones y a partir de 1962 le llego el exito con canciones como "The Gypsy Cried","Two Faces Have I","Outside the Gates of Heaven","I'm Gonna Make You Mine","Lightnin' Strikes" y muchas mas canciones hasta finales de la decada.
Otro de los Reyes del Falsete,junto con Frankie Valli de los Four Seasons,Lou Christie...Vamos con esta cancion que fue cara A de un single a la altura de 1963,grabando todavia para Roulette,el sello de George Goldner...
Cuantas lagrimas tendre que derramar para que te enteres de lo que te quiero
Cuantas lagrimas tendre que derramar para que me creas...

UP ON THE ROOF

THE DRIFTERS

...bueno,vamos a continuar con los Drifters y esta vez no es la voz de Ben E.King la que esta al frente,si no la de Rudy Lewis,como tenor principal.
Lewis ocuparia el puesto de King a partir de 1961;todo un gran artista y cantante que nacio el 23 de Agosto de 1936 y murio en 1964.Sin duda,una de las grandes voces del R&B y lo vamos a escuchar con un tema compuesto por Carole King y Gerry Goffin,con orquestaciones escritas por la misma Carole.
Un tema arquetipico del Pop...Si hay una melodia que me llega,es esta...Es
inmortal esta cancion...La version original claro esta,despues ha habido muchas versiones del "Up On The Roof",Sobre el Tejado...

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
And there the world below can't bother me
Let me tell you now


When I come home feelin' tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)
On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof (up on the roof)





At night the stars put on a show for free
And, darling, you can share it all with me


I keep a-tellin' you


Right smack dab in the middle of town
I've found a paradise that's trouble proof (up on the roof)
And if this world starts getting you down
There's room enough for two
Up on the roof (up on the roof)
Up on the roo-oo-oof (up on the roof)
Oh, come on, baby (up on the roof)
Oh, come on, honey (up on the roof)

"LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT"

JAYNE MANSFIELD


Blow me a kiss from across the room
Say I look nice when I'm not
Touch my hair as you pass my chair
Little things mean a lot
Give me your arm as we cross the street
Call me at six on the dot
A line a day when you're far away
Little things mean a lot
Don't have to buy me diamonds or pearls
Champagne, sables, and such
I never cared much for diamonds and pearls
'cause honestly, honey, they just cost money
Give me a hand when I've lost the way
Give me your shoulder to cry on
Whether the day is bright or gray
Give me your heart to rely on
Send me the warmth of a secret smile
To show me you haven't forgot
For now and forever, that's always and ever
Honey, little things mean a lot. . .

FIORE DI MAGGIO

FABIO CONCATO

Tu che sei nata dove c'e' sempre il sole
sopra uno scoglio che ci si puo' tuffare
e quel sole ce l'hai dentro il cuore
sole di primavera
su quello scoglio in maggio e' nato un fiore.
E ti ricordi c'era il paese in festa
tutti ubriachi di canzoni e di allegria
e pensavo che su quella sabbia
forse sei nata tu
o a acsa di mio fratello non ricordo piu'.
E ci hai visto su dal cielo
ci hai provato e piano sei venuta giu'
un passaggio da un gabbiano
ti ha posata su uno scoglio ed eri tu.
Ma che bel sogno era maggio e c'era caldo
noi sulla spiaggia vuota ad aspettare
e tu che mi dicevi guarda su quel gabbiano
stammi vicino e tienimi la mano.
E ci hai visto su dal cielo
ci hai provato e piano sei venuta giu'
un passaggio da un gabbiano
ti ha posata su uno scoglio ed eri tu.
Tu che sei nata dove c'e' sempre il sole
sopra uno scoglio che ci si puo' tuffare
e quel sole ce l'hai dentro il cuore
sole di primavera
su quello scoglio in maggio e' nato un fiore...

...vamos con un cantautor italiano,Fabio Concato,y este tema antes de que se termine el mes,...es un rito poner la cancion de hace ya mas de 20 aƱos y aqui va:"Flor De Mayo"...

MAKE THE NIGHT A LITTLE LONGER

THE PALISADES

...mmmh,bueno,pues vamos con esta cancion,que grabaron como cara B de un single un grupo de chicas llamadas The Palisades.Es una cancion de Carole King y Gerry Goffin y esta banda en particular siempre ha permanecido como una especie de misterio...Es la cancion favorita de este programa...
Hagamos la noche un poco mas larga..

My days are years 'cause I don't see my baby
Till the stars are in the sky
& every night when we can be together
Time just seems to hurry by

So Lord I'm beggin' you to make the night (just a little longer)
Make the night (just a little longer)
So I can kiss him (just a little longer)
& hold him tight (just a little longer)

You made the world the way you thought it should be
So won't you make the night a little longer for me?

My nights are warm, 'cause when he hugs & holds me
Everything just feels so fine
But Lord, you know, I hate to see the sunlight
Takes away that man of mine


(Just a little longer, just a little longer)


Then embrace his arms (just a little longer)
Capture all of his charms (just a little longer)
Please Lord, make the night
(just a little longer)

"THE CRYSTAL SHIP"

THE DOORS

...vamos a escuchar a los Doors,con Jim Morrison a la cabeza.Jim Morrison que nacio un 8 de Diciembre de 1943 y ya sabeis que murio en el Verano de 1971.
James Douglas Morrison,nacido en Melbourne,en el estado de Florida.
Vamos a escucharle,a los Doors,con esta cancion que era la favorita de mi buena amiga,Maria de Gracia,de Puertollano.
Siempre me la pedia para estas fechas,por que se acordaba de su idolatrado Jim Morrison...y ahora ella tampoco esta con nosotros...Bueno,aqui vamos,
en el barco de cristal...En Recuerdo de Maria de Gracia...
Nos volveremos a ver...

Before you slip into unconsciousness
I'd like to have another kiss
Another flashing chance at bliss
Another kiss, another kiss

The days are bright and filled with pain
Enclose me in your gentle rain
The time you ran was too insane
We'll meet again, we'll meet again

Oh tell me where your freedom lies
The streets are fields that never die
Deliver me from reasons why
You'd rather cry, I'd rather fly

The crystal ship is being filled
A thousand girls, a thousand thrills
A million ways to spend your time
When we get back, I'll drop a line...
