Ahhh...what would I ever do without my beloved music?  From the very beginning of my life, it has always been an intrinsic part of my soul...

To ME, music possesses a myriad of magical qualities...it can soothe you when you are feeling stressed and it can jazz you when you are feeling happy.  From our Classical geniuses to our geniuses of Rock 'n' Roll, there is NOTHING on this Earth that quite equals the exquisite feeling of  listening to your favorite songs via a state-of-the-art music system.  Whether you are listening through a pair of headphones or listening through a pair of speakers, the sheer joy of hearing those first few notes as they begin pulsing throughout your body is nothing short of AWESOME!!! 

They call music "THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE" and I wholeheartedly agree with them (whoever it is that this famous "THEY" may be!)  I mean just look at what music's role in our lives hasBEEN! From lifting up ill people and empowering charitable events, to striving for that "PARTY ATMOSPHERE" (if you want your next celebration to be a SUCCESS, that is), music has bestowed upon the entire globe its magical powers in COUNTLESS ways!!! 

Consider your favorite musicians and what YOUR favorite songs mean toYOU...As far as I'M concerned, ELTON JOHN (and of course BERNIE TAUPIN) give me everything that I need, and in fact, they gave to CHRIS and I a song that we consider very special to us called, "THE ONE."

From the very onset, I feel that ELTON and BERNIE'S collaboration was an INCREDIBLE coming together of two sheer geniuses and I thank my lucky stars that they eventually DID meet! . To ME, their songs are oh so MOVING...so extremely EMOTIONAL...so VERY, VERY, VERY,SENSITIVE as well as extraordinarily BEAUTIFUL...Oh goodness...I can go on and on and on and on and on about how much I ADOREthese two people's music, but if I DID, I assure you that this page that you are reading would take forever to load, so I'll just simply say that I am DEEPLY GRATEFUL for everything that these two ultra-talented men have brought into my life via their combined musical/lyrical efforts

Since these days we are fortunate enough to be able to create our very own personal music playlists on mp3 music players (thank you to technology), Chris and I recently joined two online music downloading websites, Rhapsody and Yahoo!

I won't bore you with the details of all the songs we have placed upon our playlists LOL but I WILL tell you that since deciding to do this, we are having a much more enhanced musical experience!

Here are a few songs that match my passion as it relates to my creation of my planet website:
 

IMAGINE
   by John Lennon

Imagine there's no Heaven

It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one




BELIEVE
       Music by Elton John
       Lyrics by Bernie Taupin

I believe in love, it’s all we got

Love has no boundaries, costs nothing to touch
War makes money, cancer sleeps
Curled up in my father and that means something to me
Churches and dictators, politics and papers
Everything crumbles sooner or later
But love, I believe in love

I believe in love, it’s all we got
Love has no boundaries, no borders to cross
Love is simple, hate breeds
Those who think difference is the child of disease
Father and son make love and guns
Families together kill someone
Without love, I believe in love

Without love I wouldn’t believe
In anything that lives and breathes
Without love I’d have no anger
I wouldn’t believe in the right to stand here
Without love I wouldn’t believe
I couldn’t believe in you
And I wouldn’t believe in me
Without love

I believe in love
I believe in love
I believe in love


I'M ALIVE
    by Neil Diamond

Take a walk,
You can hardly breathe the air
Look around,
It's a hard life everywhere
People talk,
But they never really care
On the street
There's a feeling of despair

But everyday
There's a brand new baby born
And everyday
There's the sun to keep you warm
And it's alright
Yeah, it's alright

I'm alive
And I don't care much for words of doom
If it's love you need,
Well I've got the room
It's a simple thing
That came to me when I found you
I'm alive
I'm alive

Every night
On the streets of Hollywood
Pretty girls
Want to give you something good
Love for sale,
It's a lonely town at night
Therapy
For a heart misunderstood

But look around,
There's a a flower on every street
Look around,
And, it's growing at your feet
And everyday you can hear me say
That I'm alive
I wanna take all that life has got to give
All I need is someone to share it with
I've got love
And love is all I really need to live
I'm alive
I'm alive

And everyday
There's a brand new baby born
And everyway
There's enough to keep you warm
And it's okay
And I'm glad to say
That I'm alive

And I don't care much for words of doom
If it's love you got ,well I've got the room
It's a simple thing
That came to me when I found you
I'm alive
I'm alive
I wanna take all that life has got to give
All I need is someone to share it with
I've got love
And love is all I really need to live
I'm alive
I'm alive

And I don't care much for words of doom
If it's love you need,
Well I've got the room
It's a simple thing that came to me

And thank God I'm alive
I can take all that life has got to give
If I got someone to share it with
I got love and love is all you really need
I'm alive


CHEROKEE NATION (INDIAN RESERVATION)
          Lyrics by John D. Loudermilk
          Sung by Paul Revere and the Raiders Featuring Mark Lindsay


They took the whole Cherokee nation
And put us on this reservation
They took away our ways of life
The tomahawk and the bow and knife

They took away our native tongue
And taught their English to our young
And all the beads we made by hand
Are nowadays made in Japan

Cherokee people
Cherokee tribe
So proud to live
So proud to die

They took the whole Indian nation
Locked us on this reservation
And though I wear a shirt and tie
I still part Redman deep inside

Cherokee people
Cherokee tribe
So proud to live
So proud to die

And some day when they've learned
Cherokee Indian will return
Will return will return
Will return will return


Zor and Zam
   Lyrics by Bill and John Chadwick
   Sung by the Monkees

The king of Zor, he called for war
And the king of Zam, he answered.
They fashioned their weapons one upon one
Ton upon ton, they called for war at the rise of the sun.

Out went the call to one and to all
That echoed and rolled like the thunder.
Trumpets and drums, roar upon roar
More upon more.
Rolling the call of "Come now to war."

Throughout the night they fashioned their might
With right on the side of the mighty.
They puzzled their minds plan upon plan
Man upon man
And at dying of dawn the great war began.

They met on the battlefield banner in hand.
They looked out across the vacant land.
And they counted the missing, one upon one,
None upon none.
The war it was over before it begun.

Two little kings playing a game.
They gave a war and nobody came.
And nobody came.
And nobody came.
And nobody came.
And nobody came.
[repeat and fade]

FRAGILE
          by Sting

If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the colour of the evening sun
Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay

Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime's argument
That nothing comes from violence
and nothing ever could
For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star
Like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are
How fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star
Like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are
How fragile we are
How fragile we are
How fragile we are


NEW WORLD COMING
    Lyrics by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil
      Sung by Mama Cass Elliot


There's a new world coming
And it's just around the bend
There's a new world coming
This one's coming to an end

There's a new voice calling
You can hear it if you try
And its growing stronger
With each day that passes by

There's a brand new morning
Rising clear and sweet and free
There's a new day dawning
That belongs to you and me

There's a new world coming
The one we've had visions of
Coming in peace
Coming in joy
Coming in love


WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD
     Lyrics by Bob Thiele, George David Weiss and George Douglas
   Sung by Louis Armstrong

I see trees of green

Red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world 

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white
The bright blessed day
The dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world 

The colors of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, saying "How do you do?"
They're really saying "I love you" 

I hear babies cry
I watch them grow
They'll learn much more
Than I'll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself
What a wonderful world


ONE TIN SOLDIER
         Lyrics by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter
       Sung by Joan Baez

Listen children to a story that was written long ago
'bout a kingdom on a mountain and the valley folk below
on the mountain was a treasure buried deep beneath a stone
and the valley people swore they'd have it for their very own

CHORUS:
go ahead and hate your neighbour

go ahead and cheat a friend
do it in the name of heaven
you could justify it in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing
come the judgement day
on the bloody morning after
One tin soldier rides away

So the people of the valley sent a message of the hill,
asking for the buried treasure, tons of gold for which they'd kill.
Came an answer from the kingdom "with our brothers we will share.
All the secrets of our mountain, all the riches buried there."

Now the valley cried with anger,"mount your horses, draw your sword"
And they killed the mountain people so they won their just reward.
Now they stood beside the treasure, on the mountain dark and red.
Turned the stone and looks beneath it; PEACE ON EARTH was all it said.

CHORUS

REPEAT


I AM YOUR CHILD
         by Barry Manilow

I am your child
Wherever you go, you take me too
Whatever I know, I learned from you
Whatever I do, you taught me to do
I am your child
And I am your chance

Whatever will come, will come from me
Tomorrow is won, by winning me
Whatever I am, you taught me to be
I am you hope, and I am your chance
I am your child

Whatever I am, you taught me to be
I am your hope, I am your chance
I am your child


Finally, I think that these words written by Barry Manilow, sums it up when he says to us all:

I WRITE THE SONGS

I've been alive forever, and I wrote the very first song
I put the words and the melodies together
I am music and I write the songs

CHORUS
I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs
My home lies deep within you
And I've got my own place in your soul
Now, when I look out through your eyes
I'm young again, even though I'm very old

CHORUS


Oh my music makes you dance
And gives you spirit to take a chance
And I wrote some rock 'n' roll so you can move
Music fills your heart
Well, that's a real fine place to start
It's from me it's for you
It's from you, it's for me
It's a worldwide symphony

CHORUS
CHORUS

I am Music (music) and I write the songs
