#SongTuesday

Happy Tuesday, everybody. Coldplay published sooo many great songs in the past. Still, there is one that stands out for me. It was released when I was about to see more about life than ever before. It was a time of profound discovery and the beginning of a neverending journey in a new direction, and this song has been a companion. Which song of Coldplay do you like best?

#SongTuesday

When I scheduled today’s poem, I noticed a chorus began playing in my mind which goes so well along with the feeling of just escaping and feeling a new freedom. When even the lyrics are not really fitting the poem’s story, I felt like sharing it today. I am glad the poem reminded me of this beautiful song which I haven’t heard in ages. Happy Tuesday, everybody!

Simply Awesome!

After I shared “Take Me Home, Country Roads” by Jared Halley, Colin, of MeAndRay, told me to check out Halley’s version of Bohemian Rhapsody. Really, I have no words for what talent and, at the same time, genius in coordination he is. The man has no instrument to rely on but hits every singly note precisely and is always on time with every instrument he “imitates”. Listen to that electric guitar. You would not believe there is a voice.

Friday Song

I heard a beautiful version of “Country Roads” this morning. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find it on YouTube, BUT…. I found something even better. This cover version is fantastic in general, but also because the artist does every voice and instrument himself, AND because of the creative video. This guy is amazing! But check it out for yourselves.

#SongTuesday

Here is a song I could hear all day. It is super short but super cool too. It is impossible to sit still. There are quite a lot of remixes out there also, long ones. But I still prefer this one. So, enjoy and have a quick but intense energy boost to your day. Happy Tuesday!

#MomentsOfJoy

For this #MomentsOfJoy, I thought of a song that always manages to make me smile and dance. The song itself has this effect on me but also takes me back to the time it was published. I was 13 and as usual, we spent a part of the summer break in Vienna. When I heard this song, I loved it so much that I made it the first song I bought on a single (like the one below).

Chris Mann

Yesterday I stumbled over Chris Mann due to a Corona parody video. I checked out more of his songs and couldn’t believe my ears. His voice and his way of expression are outstanding. I listened to some of his records and found versions of You Raise Me Up and Hallelujah. I had not thought that there someone is able to top the ones I called my favorite versions. Both were moving me to tears.

“Imagine Love” and guitar sounds in Santa Monica

Yesterday, Colin of MeAndRay shared a song of Scott Jacobs whom he saw performing live as a street entertainer. Colin liked the voice and the song and bought a CD. In our following discussion, I mentioned that I experienced the same twice in Southern California. Colin asked me to share songs of those artists too.

Want to hear me sing classical music?

Many of you know that I am a singer. I produced 11 songs (rock/pop/ballads) so far and published them on my blog. But actually, I am a classical singer. I have sung at several concerts in halls and churches, with big and small orchestras and bands, have been booked by choirs or for big official events for the entertainment part. I played and sang leading parts in little musicals, and won both contests I participated in many years ago. Still, I don’t have a lot of digital recordings where you can hear my classical voice. That’s why I am happy I can share an Ave Maria with you which I sang in church a few weeks ago.

They Still Rock!!

IMG_20190706_223344.jpg

Last Saturday I had tickets for Status Quo. They were the main act at an annual festival in our country. Of course, they look older BUT boy did they bring the hall to a full boil! It was already a hot day and hot inside but nobody cared. We jumped, danced sang, clapped our hands, … It was an amazing experience and I felt like a teenager again hearing those songs again.

Pursue Your Dreams

IMG_20190406_184641.jpg

This is the wall tattoo above my bed. I see it daily and it still speaks to me. I often write about dreams and how they trigger our intention to try something new or to explore new fields. Those dreams are like a preview of something we desire to be or to have. They can generate new courage and strength to take steps with conviction and determination towards the realization of that dream.  Read more ›

#RomanticTuesday Song

music-2087771_960_720

Lately, I heard the original version of the song I am sharing today. It reminded me of the version with which I was introduced to this song in 1982. It was sung by a popular German opera singer of that time. The original song was released in 1965 by Frankie Valli. You know I am an opera singer and therefore I want to share the 1982 version. Enjoy! Read more ›

Good morning and happy Monday to everyone. We had a wonderful time in Vienna celebrating my mom’s 70th birthday. She did not expect us to come over and so the joy was even greater on both sides. My mom is truly the rock for us three daughters. Whatever it is, she is there. I am happy and thankful we have her. Read more ›

I love this song for its message. Now that I watched the video I love it even more.

Perhaps perfect is the development of uniqueness and diversification. Have a great Monday! Read more ›

Bohemian Rhapsody

Last night I watched this amazing movie in an IMAX movie theatre. It was the first day of release over here. Like most of you I love the songs of Queen and sadness still fills me when thinking of the loss of Freddie. Although I am not used to making movie reviews and also I basically don’t have time to do so. But this movie is really worth it when even I am doing it in a nutshell. Read more ›

Don’t Regret – Become A Better Person

Bildergebnis für benjamin zander quotes

Recently, Colin of MeAndRay.com shared a wonderful link with me. It is a Ted Talk with the conductor Benjamin Zander. He is talking about the transformative power of classical music. No, this won’t become a post about classical music. What went so deep were Zander’s profound insights about life and beyond which he incorporated in his talk.“I will never say anything that couldn’t stand as the last thing I ever say.” This was the vow of a woman who survived Auschwitz. Zander told the story of that woman at the end of his talk. It is the inspiration for this post. I will try keeping this post shorter than my usual Monday posts because I want you to listen to that talk. Something wonderful will happen inside of you. Read more ›

Happy Monday, friends! Although today is not going to be as sunny and hot as most days last week I know it is going to be a great day. I am already happy when it is not raining like a waterfall… 😉

Have a great day everyone!

Waterfall – Stargate feat. P!nk and Sia

[Sia:]
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall

[P!nk:]
Oh, I’m in the jungle now
You’ve been seeking, I’ve been hiding out
Use your love, it scares me so deep down
You may find me, ’cause my heart beats loud, so loud
It beats fast, in the places where you touched me last
I can feel the burn my skin, it has
But the return of your beloved hands, hands

[Sia:]
I’ve lost control
I paddle, but you’re too strong
But I gotta trust your flow
‘Cause boy, I’m in your waterfall (waterfall)
Oh, I’ve lost control
And babe, it’s a relief to know
I got you keeping me afloat
When I’m in your waterfall

[Sia:]
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
[P!nk:]
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall
I’m in your waterfall

[Sia:]
Baby, you’re my oxygen
When I cannot find my way on Earth
You know I can be when I hold on
Even when the rapid’s strong

[P!nk:]
I’ve lost control
I paddle, but you’re too strong
But I gotta trust your flow
‘Cause babe, I’m in your waterfall ([Sia:] waterfall)
But I’ve lost control
And babe, it’s a relief to know
I got you keeping me afloat
When I’m in your waterfall

Five Day Song Challenge – Day 5 / Song of the Day

song-of-the-day

This day welcomed me with a thick layer of snow. It already snowed yesterday. It was only from time to time but when it did, it was worse than in winter. I just worry about my poor trees and hope that this was it.

20170419_072910.jpgThis is my poor willow. Usually, its branches are upright and it truly looks like a big crown.

Anyway, I want to send another big THANK YOU to Holly of House of Heart for nominating me for a great music challenge. It is already the last day and I enjoyed it a lot!!  Read more ›

I usually don’t post a song on the weekends but due to my sister’s challenge, I cannot resist doing so. I thought I’d pick some songs I would not post on a regular Song-of-the-Day post. So here I go with a song by Connie Francis from 1961. The 60’s were a time when many artists performed in German (think of The Beatles or even Elvis Presley). I love her voice and her songs were so typical for the 60’s sound.  Read more ›

Song of the Day

song-of-the-day

Another song I liked to listen to and never thought about the meaning nor did I bother to really understand the lyrics back then. But when I listened to the song now it really made me think and I checked Wikipedia:

The first line of the song, “All God’s children need traveling shoes”, is the title of a book by writer/poet Maya Angelou.
Speaking about the somewhat obscure and enigmatic lyrics, Tikaram has offered different views on their meaning, but said it’s mostly about the particular relationship with the world one feels when entering adulthood. “the song is really about not understanding – when you’re 18, you’ve got a very particular emotional relationship with the world, you feel very isolated, and everybody else is so distant and cold. And I think I was singing about not feeling anything or not being moved by things around. I think this is a strong feeling when you’re just after adolescence. Read more ›

The words were first, but the melody followed automatically. I could say that I heard the words singing. Everything else around simply developed while working on the song. Please use headphones if listening over your phone, laptop, tablet, PC, etc.  in order to have the full sound experience! So, let me know what you think 😏 Enjoy!

Dear Michael! – In Loving Memory

I repost this from last year because it feels to me as if I just had it written. Just modified it a little

This is a little tribute to a person who not only had a big impact on the whole music industry and on the evolution of music in general,  but also on my life (and for sure uncountable others) in particular. Michael’s songs were with me in my difficult teenage years. They lifted me up, helped me to cry, and empowered me. I was amazed by Michael’s voice, his words, his incomparable way of dancing, and of the message he spread and left for us.

I was blessed to see him on his Bad Tour in 1988 and on his HiStory Tour in 1997. The past years I went to see the musical Thriller Live” (which started before he passed), The Cirque De Soleil Immortal Michael Jackson twice, and another tribute show. Believe it or not but at some point of each of those events, his spirit was clearly sensible. I swear I felt it clearly.

The day Michael died it felt like losing one my closest friends. RIP MJ

I hope you like the little poem I wrote below and find some more songs of an unforgettable genius.

This Moment

Last year in May I finished my song This Moment. But for some reasons I did not publish it yet. That made sense when I wrote my post My Symbol Of Letting Go. It became my symbol and the moment for publishing it was just perfect.

But I still wasn’t content with it and we did some more fine tuning and exchanged some guitar parts. Now it is ready for the official release. Perhaps you might not notice dramatic differences but to me they definitely are! I hope you like it. Read more ›

Yesterday Rich posted a song by Sam Cooke. It reminded me to a song which was released in 1960. Why do I know about that song? Because it was part of an advertisement for a jeans brand in 1986. Read more ›

Guest Song: Karen Folman

Yesterday I got a lovely email from Karen Folman of You Are Pretty Fucking Special. She asked me if I considered to add her song  Just Breathe to my page Guest Songs. I listened to the song and was enchanted from the first moment on. She has a beautiful voice, calming and clear.  It is her lyrics and she plays the guitar as single background. You will be carried away…

I am honored and humbled to proudly present: Read more ›

Song of the Day

Hello and welcome in the new week. I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. I spent more or less all weekend in a basement learning Module 6 of Emmett Therapy. In November I reach the next certificate level. Thanks to the great weather we did a barbecue in the evening. I totally enjoyed that.

But now let’s conquer week 29 and whatever happens make sure “it wasn’t you” 😇 Read more ›

Song of the Day

I heard this song yesterday on the radio and knew I had to post it today. The song moved me a lot because that is what we experience here every day. I know I repeat myself but what we find here on this blogsphere is still a miracle to me. We live a concept which is the recipe of peace and healing. We are experiencing a gathering and connection of spirits with different origines and different kinds of lives. We not only want to be part of other people’s circle but also want to have others in our circle. We experience the magic and power of oneness. When it is possible to live this concept in the small then it is possible to apply it in every part of our lives and in the world itself.

I choose the original video for this song. It leads into the matter in a wonderful way.

Love can build a bridge
Between your heart and mine
Love can build a bridge
Don’t you think it’s time?
When we stand together, it’s our finest hour
We can do anything, anything
We’re believing in the power Read more ›

Song of the Day – Discovering Alice Cooper

Song of the Day

Right when I opened the window to post my song that one was played on the radio. I remembered the time when I finally started to find my own voice and let it roar. What a feeling of power and self-determination. There was an unknown strength emerging which I did not feel before. Once released this voice did never go back in its cave anymore. Read more ›

Song of the Day

It was not very difficult to find a song for today. It has been raining all weekend long and won’t stop I guess. So I thought about a classic song I always heard when I got up in the morning back in the early 80s by a great band who unfortunately isn’t anymore. Read more ›

Song of the Day: Crucified

Lately I stumbled over a song I often heard in the morning when driving to work in 1991. The band is pretty “special” and so is the video.

International Song of the Day

I felt like making Wednesday my “international” song of the day. I would like to post songs from different countries or in different languages. Here in Europe we are used to listening to several languages such as French, Italian, Spanish, or many others. I would like to start with a song of an Israeli woman. The song was released in the late 70s but only the remix of 1988 made it into the European charts. It even is partly English. I always loved that song and listening to it again I have to say I still do!!! Enjoy! Read more ›

Therefore I felt like posting one of my ultimate favorite songs which makes my mood growing to the max! Read more ›

Song of the Day

20150408_204345

When I looked to the mountains yesterday I couldn’t resist to take a picture. It was too beautiful. Day and night playing with the light and this single big bright shining star on the top sparkling in the darkening evening sky. I immediately had this song in mind – passionate and magical like the evening sky. Read more ›

Song of the Day

Do you remember who’s Axel Foley? Yes, that’s Eddy Murphy in Beverly Hills Cop. Did you know that actually Silvester Stallone was supposed to play Axel? They did exchange him because the costs for the action scenes exploded. When Eddy Murphy was called they simply turned the action scenes into comedy scenes. A completely different movie. Thank God!!! Because it is just great the way it turned out. Read more ›

Holes in the Sky

After watching Insurgent yesterday I want to share a beautiful and touching title of the soundtrack as my Song of the Day. I still think about the movie and recommend watching it.
Here are some quotes from the movie:

Song of the Day!

Today’s song is something very special. I love Paul McCartney and here he is with Linda McCartney. She was the love of his life, his muse and the woman who stuck to him, backed him up, and supported him whatever. It was so sad when she passed. There is also a beautiful song he wrote for her.

Hot Californian Dreams!

Yesterday a friend posted a song that reminded me to my beautiful California. I felt again how much I already miss it. Since I had to let go of my best friend I did not want to go there too soon. But I realize that I love that place so much more than I thought. Also it shows me that I am in peace with the past. I hope I can make it this year. Read more ›

Let’s Celebrate Monday!

There are so many songs about Mondays. I won’t post a Monday song every week but I felt like doing it today. It is a song of a band I loved a lot. I guess I will post more songs of them over time. But let’s start with that one. Who remembers that song from 1983? Read more ›

Song of the Day

Lately I often think back to the songs I listened to as a teenager. I love to make this one today’s Song of the Day. When we had our disco nights this song was played every time although it was already released in 1972 (I was two at that time). Whenever I hear it I am back in that time, dancing, having fun with all my friends, experiencing first love in the dark corners of the discotheque….

My Songs – Page Update

I just updated my page My Songs. I split it into 3 categories:

My own productions: Here you find all my songs I produced by today. Also I decided to the complete songs instead of excerpts. You all are so amazing and I am endlessly grateful for having found so many lovely people. I want you to hear everything.

Classic: On this page I publish my classic songs. At the moment it is only one… 😖… since the others are not in a digital format. Yeah, I am singing that long… lol. You might be surprised how different I sound with my classic voice. Check it out! I plan to record some musical songs as well over time and will add them to this page.

Guest songs: This actually is the reason for this post. I would like to provide a space for the great music my friends produce. There are some in my community. I felt honored if I were allowed to display your favorite songs on this page in order to introduce them to a wider audience. Before I added your songs I will post them with title, artist, and lyrics (if there are any) plus whatever you would like to say. Please let me know if you are interested. It would be such a pleasure for me to share and honor your precious gifts.

I will be coming up with the first songs by two cherished friends I was already allowed to add to the page .

In Love and Light!

Song of the Day!

Song of the day!

Music is half of my life. I can’t imagine my life without music – no matter what style. I love to listen to music but I love even  more to make music. Music is vibration. Music is expression. Music carries endless messages and it doesn’t matter whether with or without lyrics. We can express our feelings through a song. When we are open-hearted we get insights, solutions, or confirmations when a certain song is played at the right moment.

I often speak through songs. That means when I have something important to say to someone I pick a song which expresses what I want to transmit. I used music this way all my life. Read more ›
