每日一歌,No Such A Thing



John Mayer

No Such A Thing

This song is from the CD "Room For Squares".

"Welcome to the real world", she said to me
Condescendingly
Take a seat
Take your life
Plot it out in black and white
Well I never lived the dreams of the prom kings
And the drama queens
I'd like to think the best of me
Is still hiding
Up my sleeve

They love to tell you
Stay inside the lines
That something's better
On the other side

I wanna run through the halls of my......

每日一歌,Butterfly



Jason Mraz

Butterfly

Jason Mraz has an amazing voice. This song is from latest CD "We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things", which sounds very different from his older stuff.

I’m taking a moment just imaginin’ that I’m dancin’ with you
I’m your pole and all you’re wearing is your u’ve got everything you need, especially me
Sister you’ve got i
Curl your upper lip up and let me look around
Ride your tongue along your bottom lip and bite down
And bend your back and ask those hips if I can touch

每日一歌,Ants Marching



Dave Matthews Band

Ants Marching

This is a very interesting band with a very distinctive sound.


He wakes up in the morning
Does his teeth bite to eat and he's rolling
Never changes a thing
The week ends the week begins
She thinks, we look at each other
Wondering what the other is thinking
But we never say a thing
These crimes between us grow deeper

Take these chances
Place them in a box until a quiter time
Lights down, you up and die

每日一歌,Ain't Going Down (Til The Sun Comes Up)


Garth Brooks

Ain't Going Down (Til The Sun Comes Up)

当我在听有动感的乡村蓝调音乐时,经常会想站起来跟着音乐一起舞动。


Six o'clock on Friday evening
Momma doesn' t know she's leaving
'Til she hears the screen door slamming
Rubber squealin', gears a-jamming
Local country station just a blaring on the radio
Pick him up at seven and they're headin' to the rodeo
Momma's on the front porch screamin' out her warning
Girl you better get your red head
Back in bed before the m......

每日一歌,Why Georgia



John Mayer

Why Georgia

为什么这么多音乐?因为很多时候的心态是无法用语言来形容的。我希望和大家分享的音乐能给你们带来生活中的色彩与乐趣。

I am driving up 85 in the
kind of morning that lasts all afternoon
just stuck inside the gloom

Four more exits to my apartment but
I am tempted to keep the car in drive
and leave it all behind

Cause I wonder sometimes
about the outcome
of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
A......

每日一歌,Jolene



Dolly Parton

Jolene

Beautiful song by Dolly Parton about a women named "Jolene", who her husband is having an affair with. She wrote this song when she was 18 and now she is 64.


Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
Im begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
Please don't take him just because you can
Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Your smile is like a breath of spring
You......

每日一歌,What The World Needs Now



Stacey Kent

What The World Needs Now

What the world needs now is love, isn't that so true? This song is quite simple but very catchy. Anyway, this song has touched my heart, and I hope that it will do the same for you.


What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love,
No not just for some but for everyone.

Lord, we don't need another mountain,
There are mountains and hillsides enough to......

每日一歌,How Wonderful You Are



Gordon Haskell

How Wonderful You Are


"I've always struggled with the art of conversation." Isn't that true? Sometimes words can not fully express our feelings. This is why we have music.


I go out most nights
Attracted by the lights
Listen to the jazz in Harry's Bar
And I know it won't be long
Before they play that song
Do you know how wonderful you are

It's a sentimental sound
Make me wanna fool around
With somebody who is wishing on a star
I'll pull......

每日一歌,From This Moment On



Shania Twain

From This Moment On

This song is a KTV classic and a great wedding song. Again, this is a country song, you can tell by the vocal techniques used.

(I do swear that I'll aways be there.
I'd give anything and everything and I will always care.
Through weakness and strength, happiness and sorrow,
for better or worse, I will love you with
every beat of my heart.)
From this moment life has begun
From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong

每日一歌,When You Say Nothing At All



Keith Whitley

When You Say Nothing At All

Another country classic here for you all to enjoy. Note the instrument playing the intro of the song, it is called a dobro. It is a very distinct country music instrument, in other words, if you hear a dobro playing, you are listening to a country song.

It's amazing
How you can speak
Right to my heart
Without saying a word,
You can light up the dark
Try as I may
I could never explain
What I hear when
You don't say a thing

每日一歌, Always On My Mind



Elvis Presley

Always On My Mind

Another country classic. If you are trying to get your ex-girlfriend back, this is a great song to sing to her. Country music is a great way to pass on a message to someone special. As you can see, the lyrics are simple, and very much resembles letter or a story. Check this song's lyrics out, isn't it beautiful? Isn't it saying just about everything that you want to say to that special someone?


Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn't love y......

每日一歌, Amazed



Lonestar

Amazed

Beautiful country song from Lonestar. I am sure many people already heard covers of this song by other artists, but here is the original.The country singer often sing a line by starting it with the lowest range of their voice called the "vocal fry". This is one distinctive techniques all country artists uses other then their southern accent.


Every time our eyes meet
This feeling inside me
Is almost more than I can take
Baby when you touch me
I can feel how much you love me

One of my favorite Michael Jackson classics. The energy of this song just makes you want to dance. For those of you who have not seen Michael Jackson's movie "This Is It", go watch it! It is awesome!

每日一歌, Find Me In The Club



Dj Antoine

Find Me In The Club

Wow! What an energy. A great track to groove to when you are roaring down a highway on a high-power bike driving ridiculously over the speed limit. Electronic musicians are great at building dynamics. No kidding, just check out this tune and hear it for yourself!

每日一歌, Imagine



John Lennon

Imagine

John Lennon's messages from his songs inspires people to love each other. After all, the world is one big family. I hope after listen to this song, I hope you will go out and help a complete stranger. When you are helping others, you are the most beneficial person from the experience.

Even though I enjoyed the Beatles, I have always like him better as a solo artist.

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people

John Scofield and John Mayer

I Don't Need No Doctor

Awesome melody, awesome groove and an awesome voice. I love the attitude of this sound don't you? I mean listen to him sing those words, its like he really got some thing to say. Don't forget about the guitar solos. Dang! All I have to say is that John Scofield rule! Anyways, enjoy.

每日一歌, Moon River



Moon River

Beautiful song from the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's. This lovely melody can put our minds at ease, and make us fall in love with just about everything again! (whatever that means... hehe) Anyways, this song is extremely romantic, great for dates, or late night chatter sessions with some one you love.


Moon River, wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style some day.
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,
wherever you're going I'm going your way.
Two drifters off to see the world.
There's such a lo......

Curtis Mayfield

Move On Up

I love the energy and the message this song delivers to its listeners. It reminds me that I should keep on trying to reach my dreams no matter how hard life gets. Listen and read the lyrics closely, this type optimistic thinking is something everyone should have.

Hush now child,
and don't you cry
Your folks might understand you
by and by
Move on up
towards your destination
You may find
from time to time

每日一歌, Ain't No Mountain High Enough



Marvin Gayer

Ain't No Mountain High Enough

Famous Marvin Gaye tune from the football movie "Remember the Titian". I picked this song because this melody is extremely catchy. After you listen to this song, the melody will be "stuck" in your head for days!

Listen, baby
Ain't no mountain high
Ain't no vally low
Ain't no river wide enough, baby
If you need me, call me
No matter where you are
No matter how far
Just call my name
I'll be there in a hurry
You don't have to worry
