Lately, B and I have been walking around the house humming and singing this song. I'd heard it a long time ago in passing and kind of ignored it because it was Darius "Hootie" Rucker from Hootie & The Blowfish, but he performed the song at the "Capitol 4th" which we watched and we both fell in love with the lyrics.

Alright
by Darius Rucker

Alright, Alright
Yeah it's alright, alright

Don't need no five star reservations
I've got spaghetti and a cheap bottle of wine
Don't need no concert in the city
I've got a stereo and the best of Patsy Cline
Ain't got no caviar no Dom Perignon
But as far as I can see, I've got everything I want

Cause I've got a roof over my head,
the woman I love laying in my bed
And it's alright, alright
I've got shoes under my feet
Forever in her eyes staring back at me
And it's alright, alright
And I've got all I need
And it's alright by me

Maybe later on we'll walk down to the river
Lay on a blanket and stare up at the moon
It may not be no French Riviera
But it's all the same to me as long as I'm with you

It may be a simple life, but that's okay
If you ask me baby, I think I've got it made

Cause I've got a roof over my head,
the woman I love laying in my bed
And it's alright, alright
I've got shoes under my feet
Forever in her eyes staring back at me
And it's alright, alright
And I've got all I need
And it's alright by me

It's alright by me, yeah yeah
When I lay down at night I thank the Lord above
For giving me everything I ever could dream of

Cause I've got a roof over my head,
the woman I love laying in my bed
And it's alright, alright, alright, alright
I've got shoes under my feet
Forever in her eyes staring back at me
And it's alright, alright, alright
And I've got all I need, yeah
I've got all I need
And it's alright by me
Oh yeah, it's alright by me

I don't like Hootie's voice or style at all, but I like the lyrics of that song.
I'm going to YouTube it to see what it sounds like.

Thank you for stepping up to the microphone, m'lady.
Job well done!

I've been in a real Boyz II Men mood lately. I've always loved that group and how beautifully they harmonize.
This song is constantly going through my head these days.
I told my daughter, if she makes American Idol (tryouts are August 11 in Austin, I believe), she should sing this song at some point.
I really think she could nail it and make it her own.

This is one of my very favorite Boyz II Men songs (and I have many).

IT'S SO HARD TO SAY GOODBYE TO YESTERDAY

How do I say goodbye to what we had?
The good times that made us laugh
Outweigh the bad.

I thought we'd get to see forever
But forever's gone away
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

I don't know where this road
Is going to lead
All I know is where we've been
And what we've been through.

If we get to see tomorrow
I hope it's worth all the wait
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

And I'll take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

And I'll take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

In the Belly of the Whale by Newsboys

from the Veggie Tales Movie: Jonah

Up to my ears
In bitter tears.
Can't believe I've sunk this low
As I walk the plankton
Inner sanctum.
Got outta Dodge,
Sailed on a bon-less
Bon voyage.
You said North,
I headed South.
Tossed overboard.
Good Lord, that's a really large mouth...

I'm sleeping with fishes here,
In the belly of the whale.
I'm highly nutritious here,
In the belly of the whale.
Bad food, lousy atmosphere.
I don't wanna bellyache.
How long is this gonna take?

Woke up this morning kinda blue,
Thinking through that age-old question:
How to exit a whale's digestion?
It might behoove me to be heaved.
Head out like a human comet.
Hmmm... I wonder what rhymes with comet.

I'm sleeping with fishes here,
In the belly of the whale.
I'm highly nutritious here,
In the belly of the whale.
I'm ready to reappear.
I don't wanna bellyache.
Lord, how long's this gonna take?

End times, they come rolling around.
Enzymes, they come breaking us down to the core.
The good Lord grants we all get a second chance.

I'm one of the dishes here,
In the belly of the whale.
They say I'm delicious here,
In the belly of the whale.
Lord, please make him chuck it all.
It's a gut call
In the belly of the whale.

I'm in the belly of the whale.
In the belly of the whale.
I'm in the belly.
In the belly of the whale.
I'm in the belly of the whale.
In the belly of the whale.
I'm in the belly...

In the belly of the whale
In an underwater jail
It's a tight squeeze.
It's a-gettin' to me,
But it's roomier
Than the tail.
Hey, sailor,
Got my flow free
Like a salmon to the sea
From the L.A. Symphony.
I'm a paddleboat
Paddlin' in their wake,
A fake free-styler,
But my unemployment pays.
I'm avoiding cliches
Like "whale of a tale" say
Or "you can't keep
A good man down,"
'Cause you can
And I've been there, man.
But I've been expectorated.
I'm elated!
I'm free like Willie!
Happy Day!
Oops,
That's a bit of a cliche.

In the belly...

Wow, she must have some pipes on her if she can nail this song; it is particularly hard to sing. I am rooting for her to go all the way, you know. As Nonni says, it will add to my street cred to be able to say I know the mother of the 2011 American Idol, .

This is one of my favorite not only Boys II Men songs, but one of my favorite songs of all time. The extreme range variations and their beautiful harmony just make it a delight to listen to. Thank you for sharing it. I love you

Nonni, I love Veggie Tales. Thanks for sharing that and making my morning.

Nonni, that was one totally random song to sing at our karaoke bar & grill!
I've heard of Veggie Tales but have never watched the show.
Thank you for stepping up to the microphone and entertaining us with In the Belly of the Whale. laughin

For being such a little person, she does have a rather big set of pipes, Elle.
I haven't heard her sing that particular song yet, but I'm hoping she considers trying it.
Thank you for rooting for my youngest, btw. I appreciate your support and know she will, too.

I absolutely love it, too...for all the reasons you've mentioned.
It truly is a beautiful song with lovely harmony, and simple, but good lyrics, sung by one of my fave bands of all time.

She's been wanting to for quite some time, actually.
It just so happens this year, auditions are in Austin, which is where she works.
(She lives and goes to school about 30 minutes from our capital.)

I'm very excited for her and proud of her.
Whether she makes it or not, it'll still be so cool that she went for it, you know?
I really need to have her make a YouTube video one of these days, so you all can hear her sing.

Love that animated graphic, btw, Nonni. Too cute!!!

My turn to sing.
I shall choose one of the songs that's been stuck in my head this past week.
It's probably because it's on my daughter's list of songs to sing, if she makes American Idol.
(Auditions are next week!!! Send any and all positive thoughts to Austin, if you would!)

Feeling Good by Nina Simone

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Reeds driftin' on by
You know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea
You know how I feel
River running free
You know how I feel
Blossom in the tree
You know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, don't you know
Butterflies all havin' fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when the day is done, that's what I mean
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me
Fooor me

Stars when you shine
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Yeah freedom is mine
And I know how I feel
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
hu
It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
It's a new life
For me

And I'm feeling good

It's a true classic.
Michael Buble redid it recently, but it's not quite the same as Nina's version.

Glad you enjoyed it, Nonni!
Thank you for being here.

Mad World
Written by Tears for Fears Sung by Gary Jules

I heart this song.... I like Gary's version much better. It is very haunting...

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very mad world mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
And I feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very mad world ... mad world
Enlarging your world
Mad world

Woah.
I have never heard this song before, Jen.
You're right. It is a haunting tune, the way Gary Jules sings it.
I loved watching the video, too. Very cool!

Thank you for stepping up to the microphone.

Well ladies and gents I have another song for you...

I just recently acquired Adam Lambert's cd and have been listening to it the past few days. I think that so far this is probably my favorite song on his cd

Time for Miracles

It's late at night and I can't sleep
Missing you just runs too deep
Oh I can't breathe thinking of your smile

Every kiss I can't forget
This aching heart ain't broken yet
Oh God I wish I could make you see
'Cause I know this flame isn't dying
So nothing can stop me from trying

Baby you know that
Maybe it's time for miracles
'Cause I ain't giving up on love
You know that
Maybe it's time for miracles
'Cause I ain't giving up on love
No I ain't giving up on us

I just wanna be with you
'Cause living is so hard to do
When all I know is trapped inside your eyes

The future I cannot forget
This aching heart ain't broken yet
Oh God I wish I could make you see
'Cause I know this flame isn't dying
So nothing can stop me from trying

Baby you know that
Maybe it's time for miracles
'Cause I ain't giving up on love
You know that
Maybe it's time for miracles
'Cause I ain't giving up on love
No I ain't giving up on us

Baby can you feel it coming
You know I can hear it hear all the souls
Baby can you feel me feel you....

You know it's time....

Baby you know that
Maybe it's time for miracles
'Cause I ain't giving up on love
You know that
Maybe it's time for miracles
'Cause I ain't giving up on love

You know
Maybe it's time for miracles
'Cause I ain't giving up on love

No I ain't giving up love
I aint giving up no
no I ain't giving up on us

Thank you Chuck or do you prefer Clover?

Anyhoo, anytime you wanna step up to the mike go for it. I am very eclectic in my music taste as you can tell.....lol. Everyone has their favorite song choices and I love to discover new music....


Well this is a new song I have just recently heard... I love the guitar in it and in my personal opinion, I like the style in which she sings this song over the groups other ones.....enjoy!


The Only Exception - Paramore

When I was younger
I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart
And I watched
As he tried to reassemble it

And my momma swore that
She would never let herself forget
And that was the day that I promised
I'd never sing of love
If it does not exist

But darling,
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception

Maybe I know, somewhere
Deep in my soul
That love never lasts
And we've got to find other ways
To make it alone
Keep a straight face

And I've always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable, distance
And up until now
I had sworn to myself that I'm
Content with loneliness

Because none of it was ever worth the risk

Well, You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception

I've got a tight grip on reality
But I can't
Let go of what's in front of me here
I know you're leaving
In the morning, when you wake up
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream

Ohh---

You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception
You, are, the only exception

And I'm on my way to believing
Oh, And I'm on my way to believing

Another great choice. And call me Chuck, CloverSim is just a username I've been using for as long as I can remember. I'll suppose I'll contribute with a (somewhat) older song.


Break On Through (To The Other Side) - The Doors

You know the day destroys the night
Night divides the day
Tried to run
Tried to hide
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side, yeah

We chased our pleasures here
Dug our treasures there
But can you still recall
The time we cried
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side

Yeah!
C'mon, yeah

Everybody loves my baby
Everybody loves my baby
She get(s high)
She get(s high)
She get(s high)
She get(s high)

I found an island in your arms
Country in your eyes
Arms that chain
Eyes that lie
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through, oww!
Oh, yeah!

Made the scene
Week to week
Day to day
Hour to hour
The gate is straight
Deep and wide
Break on through to the other side
Break on through to the other side
Break on through
Break on through
Break on through
Break on through
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Great song for your first step up to the mike! Whoo Hoo
