Sundays are for the Blues – Etta James

I’ve been listening to a lot of Jazz n Blues recently in my caravan, especially during my down time. I was never really into the Blues but for some reason, it’s all I can listen to nowadays. So, if you care to expand your knowledge of Jazz, you can start by listening to Etta! She sings from the heart and her voice alone can stop my breath. My favorite tracks are: A sunday kind of love, Anything to say you’re mine, Dream, Fool that I am, I’ll dry my tears and At last.

“Tristeza” Help me find the lyrics!

My grandfather and I were catching up and walking down memory lane. We were thinking of my deceased grandmother and how much we both missed her to death. He played ‘Tristeza’ by Los Machucambos saying that it reminded him of her, and then he took my hand and made me dance to it. “It’s quite an upbeat song for a track called Tristeza”, said my grandfather with tears in his eyes. Indeed, this song makes me want to dance and cry at the same time. I remember spending hours looking for the lyrics until I finally did; they were beautiful and meaningful. But, I never saved them and I can no longer find them! Please, if you somehow, somewhere can find those lyrics, don’t hesitate to share them with me xoxo Love, Ray.

I’m through with Love – Marilyn Monroe

Recently, I’ve been watching loads of Woody Allen films. At the end of “Everyone Says I love you“, Goldie Hawn beautifully sings “I’m through with love” to Woody Allen. I knew I had heard it before and after some minor research I realized that Marilyn Monroe also sings it in one of my favorite films, “Some Like it Hot“. So, here you go!

Why did you lead me
To think you could care?
You didn’t need me
For you had your share
of slaves around you
To hound you and swear
with deep emotion and devotion to you

Goodbye to spring and all it meant to me
It can never bring the thing that used to be
For I must have you or no one
And so I’m through with love

Nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands.

Somewhere I have never travelled, gladly beyond
any experience, your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which I cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look easily will enclose me
though I have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully, mysteriously) her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, i and
my life will shut very beautifully, suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility: whose texture
compels me with the colour of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(I do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens; only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
Nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands

E.E Cummings
