We all have songs from the past…Some of them were made before we were born..For us, they never get old though in the music literature they would be called the old songs…They appear as a tune in our minds according to the chapters of our lives, our daily mood, seasons we are in maybe..Sometimes they are the friends there to support us when going through some tough times in our lives..With them along we forget, and with them along our heart we do remember.
Here are some of mine:
Nat King Cole
The falling leaves drift by the window The autumn leaves of red and gold I see your lips, the summer kisses The sun-burned hands I used to hold Since you went away the days grow long And soon I'll hear old winter's song But I miss you most of all my darling When autumn leaves start to fall
This is the first song ever I was singing when I was 2 years old…One of the family friends used to tell me “you know oh mamy well, but you don’t know what is coming from your behind”..Well, I was not able to control my business that time which is normal I guess…Now I know both oh mamy, and I go to washroom when I need to 🙂 Below is a picture of my hometown Bursa from early 70s.
I may be your forgotten son who wandered off at twenty one it's sad to find myself at home oh ma. If I could only hold your hand and say I'm sorry yes I am I'm sure you really understand oh Ma where are you now. Oh Mamy oh Mamy - Mamy - blue oh Mamy - Blue The house we shared upon the hill seems lifeless but it's standing still and memories of childhood days fill my mind oh Mamy Mamy Mamy. I've seen enough of different lights seen tired days and lonely nights and now without you by my side I'm lost how can I survive. Oh Mamy... Nobody who takes care of me who loves me who has time for me the walls look silent at my face oh Ma so dead is our place. The sky is dark the wind is rough and now I know what I have lost the house is not a home at all I'm leaving the future seems so small.
All these have been sung in different languages. Below is the Turkish version of “Sway”
When marimba rhythms start to play Dance with me, make me sway Like a lazy ocean hugs the shore Hold me close, sway me more Like a flower bending in the breeze Bend with me, sway with ease When we dance you have a way with me Stay with me, sway with me Other dancers may be on the floor Dear, but my eyes will see only you Only you have the magic technique When we sway I go weak I can hear the sounds of violins Long before it begins Make me thrill as only you know how Sway me smooth, sway me now Other dancers may be on the floor Dear, but my eyes will see only you Only you have the magic technique When we sway I go weak I can hear the sounds of violins Long before it begins Make me thrill as only you know how Sway me smooth, sway me now You know how Sway me smooth, sway me now
Soy un hombre muy honrado, Que me gusta lo mejor Las mujeres no me faltan, Ni el dinero, ni el amor Jineteando en mi caballo Por la sierra yo me voy Las estrellas y la luna Ellas me dicen donde voy Ay, ay, ay, ay Ay, ay mi amor Ay mi morena, De mi corazón Me gusta tocar guitarra Me gusta cantar el sol Mariachi me acompaña Cuando canto mi canción Me gustan tomar mis copas Aguardiente es lo mejor Tambien la tequila blanca Con su sal le da sabor Ay, ay, ay, ay Ay, ay mi amor Ay mi morena, De mi corazón Me gusta tocar guitarra Me gusta cantar el sol Mariachi me acompaña Cuando canto mi canción Me gustan tomar mis copas Aguardiente es lo mejor Tambien la tequila blanca Con su sal le da sabor Ay, ay, ay, ay Ay, ay mi amor Ay mi morena, De mi corazón Ay, ay, ay, ay Ay, ay mi amor Ay mi morena, De mi corazón
Hello? Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone home? Come on, Come on, Come on, now, I hear you're feeling down. Well, I can ease your pain Get you on your feet again. Relax. I'll need some information first. Just the basic facts. Can you show me where it hurts? There is no pain you are receding A distant ship's smoke on the horizon. You are only coming through in waves. Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying. When I was a child I had a FEVER My hands felt just like two balloons. Now I've got that feeling once again I can't explain, you would not understand This is not how I am. I have become comfortably numb. (solo) I have become comfortably numb. O.K. Just a little pin prick. There'll be no more aaaaaaaaah! But you may feel a little sick. Can you stand up? I do believe it's working, good. That'll keep you going through the show Come on it's time to go. There is no pain you are receding A distant ship's smoke on the horizon. You are only coming through in waves. Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying. When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse Out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look but it was gone I cannot put my finger on it now The child is grown, The dream is gone. but I have become comfortably numb.
So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, Blue skies from pain. Can you tell a green field From a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil? Do you think you can tell? Did they get you to trade Your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? And cold comfort for change? Did you exchange A walk on part in the war, For a lead role in a cage? How I wish, how I wish you were here. We're just two lost souls Swimming in a fish bowl, Year after year, Running over the same old ground. What have we found The same old fears. Wish you were here.
My first computer was a Commodore 64. Yes it had only 64 KB . It looked like this:
