Human Being by Cat Power

“Human Being” touches on the individuality and interconnectedness of the human condition.

Human Being by Cat Power on Grooveshark

You’ve got a right
You’ve got a right
You’ve got a right, you’re a human being

You’re a human being
You’re a human being
You’re a human being

You’ve got a right to scream
When the dark one’s here to stay
You’ve got a right to be
What you want and where you wanna be

You’ve got a right to breathe
To breathe
You’ve got a right
You’re a human being

You’ve got your own voice so sing
You’ve got two hands, let’s go and make anything
We all got rules we all have to break
We all have to make those mistakes

When I say, I know the way, I’m only trying
No don’t nobody know where the road to life is really lying
See the people on TV get shot in their very own street
People just like you, people just like me

Can’t you see you cut your hand on the advantages
You could stand to manage your damages
You, my dear, are a force to feed, not to fear

You’ve got a right to anywhere, anything
You’ve got a right, you’ve got a right
You’re a human being

You’ve got a right to anywhere, anything
You’ve got a right, you’ve got a right
You’re a human being

Happy Birthday Mozart!

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart baptized Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart (January, 27 1756 – December, 5 1791) was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era. He composed over 600 works in his 36 years of life, many acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic music. Mozart showed prodigious ability from an early age of 2. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. He was raised a Roman Catholic and remained a member of the Church throughout his life. Mozart’s last year was, until his final illness struck, a time of great productivity—and by some accounts, one of personal recovery. He composed a great deal, including some of his most admired works: the opera The Magic Flute and the unfinished Requiem K.

An English Lullaby for the Feast of the Holy Innocents

The Coventry Carol

This beautiful English lullaby carol originated in the Coventry Corpus Christi Mystery Plays performed in the 15th century. In a play called The Pageant of the Shearmen and Tailors, the women of Bethlehem sing this song just before Herod’s soldiers come to slaughter their children. It tells the story of the murder of the Holy Innocents, and is sung on December 28, the feast of those tiny martyrs.

Lully, Lullay, thou little tiny child.
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
Lullay thou little tiny child
Bye, bye, lully, lullay

O sisters, too, how may we do,
For to preserve this day;
This poor Youngling for whom we sing
Bye, bye lully, lullay

Herod the King, in his raging,
Charged he hath this day;
His men of might, in his own sight,
All young children to slay.

Then woe is me, poor child, for thee,
And ever mourn and say;
For thy parting neither say nor sing,
Bye, bye lully, lullay.

Xavier Rudd Lights the Way

Xavier Rudd – Amazing Musician who is a visionary in our world! Played this song, Better People, at the November 7, 2012 Chicago House of Blues show. It was incredible!! Check out his new 2012 Album, Spirit Bird – very spiritual. All the way from Australia, he brought his spirit and vision. Songs encompassed prayers. They spread amongst the crowd, out into our universe. The concert was very transforming and intense. The music was rocking. The didgeridoo, a wind instrument developed by Indigenous Australians of northern Australia around 1,500 years ago, blew us awayyyyyy.

Thanks Xavier, you truly Light My Way!

best song of the decade! “creating a dream”

BETTER PEOPLE LYRICS
People saving whales and giving your thanks to our seas
My respect to the ones in the forest
Standing up for our old trees
Them giving food to the hungry
Giving hope to the needy
Giving life to a baby, giving care for free
‘Cause there is freedom around us
We have everything we need and I will care for you
‘Cause you care for me
And we all have opinions, some of them get through
But there’s better people with more good to do, good to do
What I have could be a message
Or just some words from my heart
My respect to the ones making changes
For all the lives they’ll give their all
Like giving food to the hungry
Giving hope to the needy
Giving life to a baby, giving care for free
‘Cause there is freedom around us
We have everything we need and
I will care for you
‘Cause you cared for me
And we all have opinions, some of them get through
But there’s better people with more good to do, good to do
When our world keeps spinning round and round it goes
Mother Nature keeps spreading its disease
And our children keep growing up with
What they know through what we teach and what they see
And so only a question of the time we have
And the lives that our children need
As they can only keep growing up with
What they know through what we teach and what they see
Like giving food to the hungry
Giving hope to the needy
Giving life to a baby, giving care for free
‘Cause there is freedom around us
We have everything we need and I will care for you
‘Cause you care for me
We all have opinions, some of them get through
But there’s better people with more good to do, good to do
Oh good to do
