July 29th – Charles and Di marry – “You’re the one that I want”

In 1981 #PrinceCharles and Lady Diana Spencer got married.  And, coincidentally in 1978 “Your the one that I want” from #Grease went to No.1 #singing;#feelgood

29-7 Your the one that I want single cover

You’re the one that I want

I got chills
They’re multiplying
And I’m losing control
‘Cause the power you’re supplying
It’s electrifying!You better shape up
‘Cause I need a man
And my heart is set on you
You better shape up
You better understand
To my heart I must be true
Nothing left
Nothing left for me to doYou’re the one that I want
Oo-oo-oo, honey
The one that I want
Oo-oo-oo, honey
The one that I want
Oo-oo-oo, the one I need
Oh, yes indeed

If you’re filled
With affection
You’re to shy to convey
Better take my direction
Feel your way

I better shape up
‘Cause you need a man
I need a man
Who can keep me satisfied
I better shape up
If I’m gonna prove
You better prove
That my faith is justified
Are you sure
Yes I’m sure down deep inside

You’re the one that I want
Oo-oo-oo, honey
The one that I want
Oo-oo-oo, honey
The one that I want
Oo-oo-oo, the one I need
Oh, yes indeed

29-7 John Travolta Youre the one that I want

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 loveBaby 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 aliveIt’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 21st – Ernest Hemingway born – “For whom the bell tolls”

In 1899, #ErnestHemingway was born.  Here are the #BeeGees with For whom the bell tolls #singing;#feelgood

21-7 Church bell

For whom the bell tolls

I stumble in the night
Never really knew what it would’ve been like
You’re no longer there to break my fall
The heartache over you
I’d give it everything but I couldn’t live through
I never saw the signs
You’re the last to know when love is blindAll the tears and the turbulent years
When I would not wait for no-one
Didn’t stop and take a look at myself
And see me losing youCHORUS
When the lonely heart breaks
It’s the one that forsakes
It’s the dream that we stole
And I’m missing you more
Than the fire that will roar
There’s a hole in my soul
For you it’s good-bye
For me it’s to cry
For whom the bell tolls

Seen you in a magazine
A picture at a party where you shouldn’t have been
Hanging on the arm of someone else
I’m still in love with you
Won’t you come back to your little boy blue
I’ve come to feel inside
This precious love was never mine

Now I know but a little too late
That I could not live without you
In the dark or the broad daylight
I promise I’ll be there

CHORUS

Now I know there’ll be times like this
When I couldn’t reach out to no-one
Am I never gonna find someone
Who knows me like you do
Are you leaving me a helpless child
When it took so long to save me
Fight the devil and the deep blue sea
I’ll follow you anywhere
I promise I’ll be there

CHORUS

21-7 BeeGees For whom the bell tolls
