Pop Internacional – Hello – Adele

março 20, 2016

Hello, it’s me
I was wondering if after all these years
You’d like to meet, to go over everything
They say that time’s supposed to heal ya
But I ain’t done much healing

Hello, can you hear me?
I’m in california dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free
I’ve forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet

There’s such a difference between us
And a million miles

Hello from the other side
I must’ve called a thousand times to tell you
I’m sorry, for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried to tell you
I’m sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore

Hello, how are you?
It’s so typical of me to talk about myself
I’m sorry, I hope that you’re well
Did you ever make it out of that town
Where nothing ever happened?

It’s no secret
That the both of us are running out of time

So hello from the other side
I must’ve called a thousand times to tell you
I’m sorry, for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried to tell you
I’m sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore

Oh, anymore
Oh, anymore
Oh, anymore
Anymore

Hello from the other side
I must’ve called a thousand times to tell you
I’m sorry, for everything that I’ve done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I’ve tried to tell you
I’m sorry, for breaking your heart
But it don’t matter, it clearly doesn’t tear you apart anymore

Jingle Bells
Natal

Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob-tail ring making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

Christmas Don’t Be Late (Classic Version) Lyrics

(all right you Chipmunks! Ready to sing your song?
-I’ll say we are!
-Yeah!
-Let’s sing it now!
Okay, Simon?
-Okay!
Okay, Theodore?
-Okay!
Okay, Alvin? Alvin? ALVIN!
-OKAY!!!)

Christmas, Christmas time is near
Time for toys and time for cheer
We’ve been good, but we can’t last
Hurry Christmas, hurry fast
Want a plane that loops the loop
Me, I want a hula hoop
We can hardly stand the wait
Please Christmas, don’t be late.

(Okay fellas get ready.
That was very good, Simon.
-Naturally.
Very good Theodore.
-Ahhh.
Ah, Alvin, you were a little flat, watch it.
Ah, Alvin. Alvin. ALVIN!
-OKAY.)

Want a plane that loops the loop
I still want a hula hoop
We can hardly stand the wait
Please Christmas, don’t be late.
We can hardly stand the wait
Please Christmas, don’t be late.

(Very good, boys
-Lets sing it again! Yeah, lets sing it again!
No, That’s enough, lets not overdo it
-What do you mean overdo it?
-We want to sing it again!
Now wait a minute, boys
-Why can’t we sing it again?
-[chipmunk chatter]
Alvin, cut that out..Theodore, just a minute.
Simon will you cut that out? Boys…)

Bad Day

Where is the moment we needed the most?
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost.
They tell me your blue skies fade to grey.
They tell me your passion’s gone away.
And I don’t need no carryin’ on.

You stand in the line just to hit a new low.
You’re faking a smile with the coffee to go.
You tell me your life’s been way off line.
You’re falling to pieces everytime.
And I don’t need no carryin’ on.

Because you had a bad day.
You’re taking one down.
You sing a sad song just to turn it around.
You say you don’t know.
You tell me don’t lie.
You work at a smile and you go for a ride.
You had a bad day.
The camera don’t lie.
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind.
You had a bad day.
Oh, you had a bad day.

Well you need a blue sky holiday.
The point is they laugh at what you say.
And I don’t need no carryin’ on.

You had a bad day.
You’re taking one down.
You sing a sad song just to turn it around.
You say you don’t know.
You tell me don’t lie.
You work at a smile and you go for a ride.
You had a bad day.
The camera don’t lie.
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind.
You had a bad day.

(Oh… Holiday)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink.
And the whole thing turns out wrong.
You might not make it back and you know.
That you could be well oh that strong.
I’m not wrong (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeeeah).

So where is the passion when you need it the most?
Oh you and I.
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost.

Cause you had a bad day.
You’re taking one down.
You sing a sad song just to turn it around.
You say you don’t know.
You tell me don’t lie.
You work at a smile and you go for a ride.
You had a bad day.
You’ve seen what you like.
And how does it feel for one more time?
You had a bad day.
You had a bad day.

I Gotta Feeling

I gotta feeling
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good, good night

I gotta feeling
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good, good night

Tonight’s the night, let’s live it up
I got my money, let’s spend it up
Go out and smash it like oh my God
Jump off that sofa, let’s get, get off

I know that we’ll have a ball if we get down
And go out and just lose it all
I feel stressed out, I wanna let it go
Let’s go way out spaced out and losing all control

Fill up my cup, Mazel Tov
Look at her dancing, just take it off
Let’s paint the town, we’ll shut it down
Let’s burn the roof and then we’ll do it again

Let’s do it, let’s do it, let’s do it, let’s do it
And do it and do it, let’s live it up
And do it and do it and do it, do it, do it
Let’s do it, let’s do it, let’s do it

‘Cause I gotta feeling
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good, good night

I gotta feeling
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good, good night

Tonight’s the night, let’s live it up
I got my money, let’s spend it up
Go out and smash it like oh my God
Jump off that sofa, let’s get, get off

Fill up my cup, drink, Mazel Tov, lahyme
Look at her dancing, move it, move it, just take it off
Let’s paint the town, we’ll shut it down
Let’s burn the roof and then we’ll do it again

Let’s do it, let’s do it, let’s do it, let’s do it
And do it and do it, let’s live it up
And do it and do it and do it, do it, do it
Let’s do it, let’s do it, let’s do it, do it, do it, do it

Here we come, here we go, we gotta rock
Easy come, easy go, now we on top
Feel the shot, body rock, rock it, don’t stop
Round and round, up and down, around the clock

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
Friday, Saturday, Saturday to Sunday
Get, get, get, get, get with us, you know what we say, say
Party every day, p-p-party every day

And I’m feelin’
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good, good night

I gotta feeling
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good night
That tonight’s gonna be a good, good night

The Beatles – Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

março 5, 2009

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green
Towering over your head
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes
And she’s gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers
That grow so incredibly high

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds
And you’re gone

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Picture yourself on a train in a station
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds

The Beatles – Helter Skelter

março 5, 2009

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again.

Do you, don’t you want me to love you
I’m coming down fast but I’m miles above you
Tell me tell me tell me come on tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain’t no dancer.

Helter skelter helter skelter
Helter skelter.

Will you, won’t you want me to make you
I’m coming down fast but don’t let me break you
Tell me tell me tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain’t no dancer.

Look out helter skelter helter skelter
Helter skelter

Look out, cause here she comes.

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
And I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
And I get to the bottom and I see you again

Well do you, don’t you want me to make you
I’m coming down fast but don’t let me break you
Tell me tell me tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain’t no dancer.

Look out helter skelter helter skelter
Helter skelter
Look out helter skelter
She’s coming down fast
Yes she is
Yes she is.

Ray Charles – America The Beautiful

janeiro 21, 2009

em homenagem a Barack Obama

Oh beautiful, for heroes proved,
In liberating strife,
Who more than self, our country loved,
And mercy more than life,

America, america, may god thy gold refine,
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain devined.

And you know when i was in school,
We used to sing it something like this, listen here:

Oh beautiful, for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties,
Above the fruited plain,

But now wait a minute, i’m talking about
America, sweet america,
You know, god done shed his grace on thee,
He crowned thy good, yes he did, in a brotherhood,
From sea to shining sea.

You know, i wish i had somebody to help me sing this
(america, america, god shed his grace on thee)
America, i love you america, you see,
My god he done shed his grace on thee,
And you oughta love him for it,
Cause he, he, he, he, crowned thy good,
He told me he would, with brotherhood,
(from sea to shining sea).
Oh lord, oh lord, i thank you lord

some notes about Agatha Christie

novembro 23, 2008

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 15 september 1890 and died in 1976.
She wrote more than 80 books.
She also wrote romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but is best remembered for her 80 detective novels and her successful West End theatre plays.

***

Her works, particularly featuring detectives Hercule Poirot or Miss Jane Marple, have given her the title the ‘Queen of Crime’ and made her one of the most important and innovative writers in the development of the genre.

***

She was educated at home, but when she was 16 she was sent to Paris to study piano and singing. Although she played the piano very well, her stage fright and shyness prevented her from pursuing a carreer in music.

***

She married twice. First, with Archibald Christie who asked the divorce in 1926 to marry another woman. She disappeared for a time after the divorce and nobody never knew what happened. She married again in 1927. Her second husband was the archaeologist Max Mallowan, whom she met during a trip to Syria and Iraq.

***

Two of her books was filmed with a millionaire cast:
Murder in the Orient Express – 1974 – with Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery, John Gielgud
Death on Nile – 1978 – with Betty Davis, Mia Farrow, Jacqueline Bisset, Olivia Hussey, Maggie Smith.

***

She sold over than 2 million books.

Hercule Poirot
Poirot is one of Christie’s most famous and long-lived characters: he appeared in 33 novels and 51 short stories.His first published appearance was in The Mysterious Affair at Styles (published 1920) and his last was in Curtain (published 1975, the year before Christie died). On publication of this novel, Poirot was the only fictional character to be given an obituary in the New York Times; August 6, 1975 “Hercule Poirot is Dead; Famed Belgian Detective”

Miss Marple

Miss Jane Marple is an elderly woman who lives in the little English village of St. Mary Mead. She looks like an ordinary old lady, dressed neatly in tweed and is frequently seen knitting or pulling weeds in her garden. Miss Marple sometimes comes across as confused or “fluffy”, but when it comes to solving mysteries, she has a sharp logical mind, and an almost unmatched understanding of human nature with all its weaknesses, strengths, quirks and foibles. In the detective story tradition, she often embarrasses the local “professional” police by solving mysteries that have them stumped. Jane Marple, usually known as Miss Marple, is a fictional character appearing in twelve of Agatha Christie’s crime novels. Miss Marple is an elderly spinster who acts as an amateur detective, and lives in the village of St. Mary Mead. She has been portrayed numerous times on screen, and is one of the most famous of Christie’s creations. Her first published appearance was in issue 350 of The Royal Magazine for December 1927 with the first printing of the short story The Tuesday Night Club which later became the first chapter of The Thirteen Problems (1932). Her first appearance in a full-length novel was in The Murder at the Vicarage in 1930.
