March 31st – Eiffel Tower opens – “La vie en Rose”

In 1889, the #EiffelTower opened.  Here is a classic French song from Edith #Piaf  #Singing #Feelgood

La vie en rose

31-3 Rose tinted specs

Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
Voila le portrait sans retouche
De l’homme auquel, j’appartiens

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose

Il ma dit des mots d’amour
Des mots de tous les jours
Et ca me fait quelque chose

Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause

C’est lui pour moi
Moi pour lui dans la vie
Il me l’a dit, l’a jure pour la vie

Et, des que je l’apercois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

Des nuits d’amour ne plus en finir
Un grand bonheur qui prend sa place
Des enuis des chagrins, des phases
Heureux, heureux a en mourir

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose

Il me dit des mots d’amour
Des mots de tous les jours
Et ca me fait quelque chose

Il est entré dans mon Coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause

C’est toi pour moi
Moi pour toi dans la vie
Il me l’a dit, m’a jure pour la vie

Et, des que je l’apercois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

Lalalala, lalalala
La, la, la, la

March 28th – Songs from the musicals – My Fair Lady – “Get me to the church on time”

Lots of wedding bells tomorrow.  So here is song for all the grooms!  #singing;#feelgood

Get me to the church on time

29-3 Wedding Car

A few more hours, that’s all the time I got
A few more hours before I tie the knot
There’ll be drinks and girls all over the town
And I gotta track ‘em down in just a few more hours

I’m gettin’ married in the morning
Ding, dong, the bells are gonna chime
Pull out the stopper, we’ll have a whopper
But get me to the church on time

I got to get there in the morning
Spruced up and lookin’ in my prime
Girls come and kiss me, say that you’ll miss me
But get me to the church on time

If I am dancing roll up the floor
If I am whistling right out the door

I got to get there in the morning
Ding, ding, dong, they’re gonna chime
Kick up a rumpus, don’t lose your compass
Get me to the church, get me to the church
Pete’s sake, get me to the church on time

If Im flyin’ then shoot me down
If Im wooin’ get the girl right out of town

I got to get there in the morning
Ding, ding, dong, they’re gonna chime
Punch me and jail me, stamp me and mail me
But get me to the church, get me to the church
Pete’s sakes, get me to the church on time
On time, on time, on time

29-3 My fair lady

March 27th – Eric Clapton marries model Pattie Boyd – “Layla”

In 1979, #EricClapton married #PattieBoyd.  Probably the greatest rock #guitarist of all time, he features on this song from #DerekAndTheDominoes  #Singing #Feelgood

Layla

27-3 Eric Clapton

What’ll you do when you get lonely
And nobody’s waiting by your side?
You’ve been running and hiding much too long.
You know it’s just your foolish pride.[Chorus:]
Layla, you’ve got me on my knees.
Layla, I’m begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won’t you ease my worried mind.

I tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down.
Like a fool, I fell in love with you,
Turned my whole world upside down.

[Chorus]

Let’s make the best of the situation
Before I finally go insane.
Please don’t say we’ll never find a way
And tell me all my love’s in vain.

[Chorus 2x]

27-3 Derek & the Dominoes Layla

In 1957, the #CommonMarket (the forerunner to the #EU) was created.  A long time No. 1 at the start of the year was by #GuyMitchell  #Singing #Feelgood

Singing the Blues

26-3 Common Market map

Well, I never felt more like singing the blues
‘Cause I never thought
That I’d ever lose, your love dear
Why did you do me this wayWell, I never felt more like crying all night
‘Cause everything’s wrong
And nothing is right, without you
You got me singing the bluesWell, the moon and stars no longer shine
The dream is gone out from my mind
There’s nothing left for me to do
But cry-y-y over you

Well, I never felt more like running away
But why should I go
‘Cause I couldn’t stay, without you
You got me singing the blues.

[Instrumental]

I never felt more like singing the blues
‘Cause I never thought
That I’d ever lose, your love dear
Why did you do me this way

Well, I never felt more like crying all night
‘Cause everything’s wrong
And nothing is right, without you
You got me singing the blues

Well the moon and stars no longer shine
The dream is gone out from my mind
There’s nothing left for me to do
But cry-y-y over you

Well, I never felt more, like running away
But why should I go
‘Cause I couldn’t stay, without you
You got me singing the blues…
