Jacek Kaczmarek - Mury  (Walls)

This song was popular in 1980's during the I Solidarność in Poland.
On natchniony i młody był ich nie policzyłby nikt
the refrain
Wyrwij murom zęby krat
Zerwij kajdany połam bat
A mury runą runą runą
I pogrzebią stary świat!

"Heaven Knows" by Rick Price

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kl70X6BAp_k&p=1A942512CF6909FA&index=4&playnext=4

She's always on my mind
From the time I wake up 'til I close my eyes
She's everywhere I go
She's all I know

And though she's so far away
It just keeps gettin' stronger everyday
And even now she's gone
I'm still holding on
So tell me where do I start
'Cause it's breaking my heart
Don't wanna let her go

Maybe my love will come back some day
Only heaven knows
And maybe our hearts will find a way
Only heaven knows
And all I can do is hope and pray
'Cause heaven knows

My friends keep tellin' me
That if you really love her
You've gotta set her free
And if she returns in kind
I'll know she's mine
So tell me where do I start
'Cause it's breakin' my heart
Don't wanna let her go

Maybe my love will come back some day
Only heaven knows
And maybe our hearts will find a way
Only heaven knows
And all I can do is hope and pray
'Cause heaven knows

Why I live in despair
'Cause wide awake or dreaming
I know she's never there
And all this time I act so brave
I'm shaking inside
Why does it hurt me so

Maybe my love will come back some day
Only heaven knows
And maybe our hearts will find a way
Only heaven knows
And all I can do is hope and pray

Maybe my love will come back some day
Only heaven knows
And maybe our hearts will find a way
Only heaven knows
And all I can do is hope and pray
'Cause heaven knows
Heaven knows
Heaven knows

40:1 by Sabaton.  Some of our Polish posters (and WWII buffs) may find it interesting.  Its about the Battle of Wizna which had it's 71 year anniversary just a few days ago.

That's kinda old. I've listened to that song many times.
Sadly, Sabaton is overly commercialised. In the original released video, at the time of "Spirit, soul and heart in accordance with the old traditions" there was a scene of a Catholic Mass being prayed but in later versions that scene was cut out. They cut that out and replaced it with a cheap american-style sex scene between a sanitariuszka(nurse) and wounded soldier.

Here's a traditional Damascene wedding from the Syrian drama series Ahlur-Raaya, set in the time of the Ottomans.  As worthy of parody as Syrian acting can sometimes be, particularly because of the Damascene drawl (especially in the case of the women), it is this authenticity in the recreation of the past through traditional scenes like this as well as through the use of the old Damascene dialect and speech that I think keeps Syrian dramas ahead of the rest in the industry.  

Of course the music here is religious music and Islamic.  The women's less melodious bit is, well, of a different vein, but a nice thrust of the palm in the face of modern sensibilities: "My dear is calling me, and he wants to eat eggplant."  ;D

I just found out about them a couple months ago on one of the WWII forums (starting to get interested in the Polish Campaign).  That's too bad about the commercialization.

Епизод - Батак

The song is about the Turkish massacre in the Bulgarian town of Batak which I've visited several times.  The skulls of the martyrs lie still in the old church.

Waltz op 64 in a minor, by Frederic Chopin. That's my Chopin morning at the office.

the Ramones.  Constantly.

My band is doing a tribute concert at the end of October and I've been listening to the same 20 songs over and over and over and over and over again so we can get them right.

My wife, even though she probably likes the Ramones more than I do, can't wait for this to be over because I'm constantly mumbling, "1, 2, 3, 4!" under my breath as I go over the tunes in my head while putzing about the house.  ;D

I've only ever seen this Lady Gaga person on Project Runway (yes, serious), but she annoyed PETA, so she can't be all bad... anyway...

:mad:
Just voicing my opinion.  I don't like Lady Gaga.
I understand. I just get a little frustrated when people insult her.
Why?  Is she that important to you?
Certainly not in a religious way, as I would be frustrated if someone insulted Jesus Christ. I'm just amazed by her because I think she has a lot of talent.

OTOH, that's not that hard to do.  ::) :laugh:

The best way to make this contrived faux-avant-garde corporate bilge go away is to deprive it of the attention the record companies so desperately want for it.

What are you talking about? She's one of the few pop artists on the scene today who actually writes the majority of her own music.
