July 27th – First jet plane test flight – “When you’re a jet”

In 1949 the first #Jet Plane made a test flight.  Here is “When you’re a Jet” from #WestsideStory #singing;#feelgood

27-7 Jets - West Side Story

When you’re a Jet

When you’re a Jet,
You’re a Jet all the way
From your first cigarette
To your last dyin’ day.When you’re a Jet,
If the spit hits the fan,
You got brothers around,
You’re a family man!

You’re never alone,
You’re never disconnected!
You’re home with your own:
When company’s expected,
You’re well protected!

Then you are set
With a capital J,
Which you’ll never forget
Till they cart you away.
When you’re a Jet,
You stay a Jet!

(Spoken) I know Tony like I know me. I guarantee you can count him in.

ACTION: In, out, let’s get crackin’.

A-RAB: Where you gonna find Bernardo?

RIFF: At the dance tonight at the gym.

BIG DEAL: But the gym’s neutral territory.

RIFF: (Innocently) I’m gonna make nice there! I’m only gonna challenge him.

A-RAB: Great, Daddy-O!

RIFF: So everybody dress up sweet and sharp.

ALL (Sing)
Oh, when the Jets fall in at the cornball dance,
We’ll be the sweetest dressin’ gang in pants!
And when the chicks dig us in our Jet black ties,
They’re gonna flip, gonna flop, gonna drop like flies!

RIFF: (Spoken) Hey. Cool. Easy. Sweet. Meet Tony and me at ten. And walk tall!

A-RAB: We always walk tall!

BABY JOHN: We’re Jets!

ACTION: The greatest!

ACTION and BABY JOHN (Sing)
When you’re a Jet,
You’re the top cat in town,
You’re the gold medal kid
With the heavyweight crown!

A-RAB, ACTION, BIG DEAL
When you’re a Jet,
You’re the swingin’est thing:
Little boy, you’re a man;
Little man, you’re a king!

ALL
The Jets are in gear,
Our cylinders are clickin’!
The Sharks’ll steer clear
‘Cause ev’ry Puerto Rican’s a lousy chicken!

Here come the Jets
Like a bat out of hell.
Someone gets in our way,
Someone don’t feel so well!

Here come the Jets:
Little world, step aside!
Better go underground,
Better run, better hide!

We’re drawin’ the line,
So keep your noses hidden!
We’re hangin’ a sign,
Says “Visitors forbidden”
And we ain’t kiddin’!

Here come the Jets,
Yeah! And we’re gonna beat
Ev’ry last buggin’ gang
On the whole buggin’ street!
On the whole!
Ever!
Mother!
Lovin’!
Street!
Yeah!

July 26th – Mick Jagger born – “It’s only rock and roll”

In 1943 #MickJagger was born and in 1974 graffiti artists were paid to spray sites in London to promote the #RollingStones new single #singing;#feelgood

26-7 Young Mick Jagger

It’s only rock and roll

If I could stick my pen in my heart
And spill it all over the stage
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
Would you think the boy is strange? Ain’t he strange?If I could win ya, if I could sing ya
A love song so divine
Would it be enough for your cheating heart
If I broke down and cried? If I cried?

I said I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it
I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it
I said can’t you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

If I could stick a knife in my heart
Suicide right on the stage
Would it be enough for your teenage lust
Would it help to ease the pain? Ease your brain?

If I could dig down deep down in my heart
Feelings would flood on the page
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
Would ya think the boy’s insane? He’s insane

I said I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it
I said I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, yeah, I like it, I like it
I said can’t you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

And do ya think that you’re the only girl around?
I bet you think you’re the only woman in town
Oh, yeah

I said I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it
I said I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it
Oh, I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it, oh yeah
I know it’s only rock ‘n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, I like it, ah, I like it, I like it, I like it, I like it
(Only rock ‘n roll but) I like it…

Baby Love

25-7 Cute baby

Ooh baby love, my baby love
I need you, oh how I need you
But all you do is treat me bad
Break my heart and leave me sad
Tell me, what did I do wrong
To make you stay away so long’Cause baby love, my baby love
Been missing ya, miss kissing ya
Instead of breaking up
Let’s do some kissing and making up
Don’t throw our love away
In my arms why don’t you stay
Need ya, need ya
Baby love, ooh, baby love

Baby love, my baby love
Why must we seperate, my love
All of my whole life through
I never loved no one but you
Why you do me like you do
I get this need

Ooh, ooh, need to hold you
Once again, my love
Feel your warm embrace, my love
Don’t throw our love away

Please don’t do me this way
Not happy like I used to be
Loneliness has got the best of me
My love, my baby love

I need you, oh how I need you
Why you do me like you do
After I’ve been true to you
So deep in love with you

Baby, baby, ooh ’til it’s hurtin’ me
‘Til it’s hurtin’ me
Ooh, baby love
Don’t throw our love away
Don’t throw our love away

July 24th – Machu Picchu discovered

In 1911, #MachuPicchu was discovered.  And in 1982, #EyeOfTheTiger was No.1 in the charts.  I don’t know if they have tigers in Peru – but there might be a link!  #singing;#feelgood

24-7 Machu Picchu

Eye of the tiger

Rising up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to surviveSo many times it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hanging tough, staying hungry
They stack the odds ’til we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive

It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger

Rising up, straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I’m not going to stop
Just a man and his will to survive

It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger

24-7 Survivor Eye of the Tiger

July 23rd – Frank Sinatra – “Strangers in the night”

In 1966, #FrankSinatra went to No.1 with his most successful LP ever, #StrangersInTheNight.#singing#feelgood

Strangers in the night

23-7 Frank Sinatra strangers ep

Strangers in the night exchanging glances
Wond’ring in the night what were the chances
We’d be sharing love before the night was throughSomething in your eyes was so inviting
Something in you smile was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have youStrangers in the night
Two lonely people, we were strangers in the night
Up to the moment when we said our first hello little did we know
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away

and

Ever since that night we’ve been together
Lovers at first sight, in love forever
It turned out so right for strangers in the night

[instrumental-first three lines of chorus]
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away

Ever since that night we’ve been together
Lovers at first sight, in love forever
It turned out so right for strangers in the night

[Dooby-doooby-doo and other scat to end]

July 22nd – Cat Stevens – “Morning has Broken”

In 1947, #CatStevens who later sang “Morning has broken” was born #singing;#feelgood

Morning has broken

22-7 Morning scene

Morning has broken, like the first morning.
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird.
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning,
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word.Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlight from heaven.
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning.
Born of the one light Eden saw play.
Praise with elation, praise every morning;
God’s recreation of the new day.

Morning has broken, like the first morning.
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird.
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning,
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word.
