169. So Far away     (Dire Straits)

Here I am again in this mean old town

And you're so far away from me

And where are you when the sun goes down

You're so far away from me

So far away from me, so far I just can’t see

So far away from me, you’re so far away from me

 

I'm tired of being in love and being all alone

When you're so far away from me

I'm tired of making out on the telephone

'Cause you're so far away from me

So far away from me, so far I just can’t see

So far away from me, you’re so far away from me

 

And I get so tired when I have to explain

When you're so far away from me

See, you been in the sun and I've been in the rain

And you're so far away from me

So far away from me, so far I just can’t see

So far away from me, you’re so far away from me

170. So happy together      (The Turtles)

 

Imagine me and you, I do

I think about you day and night, it's only right

To think about the girl you love and hold her tight

So happy together

 

If I should call you up, invest a dime

And you say you belong to me and ease my mind

Imagine how the world could be, so very fine

So happy together

 

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you

For all my life

When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue

For all my life

 

Me and you and you and me

No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be

The only one for me is you, and you for me

So happy together

 

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you

For all my life

When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue

For all my life

 

Me and you and you and me

No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be

The only one for me is you, and you for me

So happy together

 

Pa-pa-pa …

 

Me and you and you and me

No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be

The only one for me is you, and you for me

So happy together

 

So happy together

How is the weather

So happy together

We're happy together

So happy together

Happy together

So happy together

So happy together

171. Son of a preacher     (Dusty Sringfield)

 

Billy Ray was a preacher's son

And when his daddy would visit he'd come along

When they gathered around and started talkin'

That's when Billy would take me walkin'

Out through the back yard we'd go walkin'

Then he'd look into my eyes

Lord knows, to my surprise

The only one who could ever reach me

Was the son of a preacher man

The only boy who could ever teach me

Was the son of a preacher man

Yes he was, he was, ooh…   yes he was

 

Bein' good isn't always easy

No matter how hard I try

When he started sweet-talkin' to me

He'd come'n tell me "Everything is all right"

He'd kiss and tell me "Everything is all right"

Can I get away again tonight ?

 

The only one who could ever reach me

Was the son of a preacher man

The only boy who could ever teach me

Was the son of a preacher man

Yes he was, he was, ooh…   yes he was

 

How well I remember…   The look that was in his eyes

Stealin' kisses from me on the sly

Takin' time to make time, tellin' me that he's all mine

Learnin' from each other's knowin'

Lookin' to see how much we've grown and..  

The only one who could ever reach me

Was the son of a preacher man

The only boy who could ever teach me

Was the son of a preacher man

Yes he was, he was, ooh…   yes he was

172. Soulman         (Ben Oncle Soul)

  

J'ai pas le regard de Spike Lee

J'ai pas l'génie de De Vinci

J'ai pas les pieds sur Terre, la patience de ma banquière

J'ai pas… ces choses là

J'ai pas la sagesse de Gandhi,

L'assurance de Mohammed Ali

J'ai pas l'âme d'un gangster, la bonté de l'Abbé Pierre,

Ni l'aura… de Guevara

 

Je n'suis qu'un Soulman écoute ça, Baby

J'suis pas un Superman, loin de là

Juste moi, mes délires, j'n'ai rien d'autre à offrir

Mais je sais qu'en vrai c'est déjà ça

 

J'ai pas l'physique des magazines,

J'ai pas l'humour de Charlie Chaplin

Je n'ai pas la science infuse le savoir-faire de Bocuse

Non je n'ai pas… ces choses là

J'ai pas la chance de Neil Armstrong

J'ai pas la carrure de King Kong

Plusieurs cordes à mon arc, la ferveur de Rosa Park

Ni le courage… de Mandela

 

Je n'suis qu'un Soulman écoute ça, Baby

J'suis pas un Superman, loin de là

Juste moi, mes délires, j'n'ai rien d'autre à offrir

Mais je sais qu'en vrai c'est déjà ça

 

Moi j'aurais aimé être comme eux

Être hors du commun

J'ai bien essayé, j'ai fait de mon mieux

Mais quoi que je fasse à la fin

 

Je n'suis qu'un Soulman écoute ça, Baby

J'suis pas un Superman, loin de là

Juste moi, mes délires, j'n'ai rien d'autre à offrir

Mais je sais qu'en vrai c'est déjà ça

 

Juste moi… mes délires

Mais je sais qu'en vrai c'est déjà ça

173. Stairway to heaven        (Led Zeppelin)

  

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold

And she's buying a stairway to heaven

When she gets there she knows, if the stars are all close

With a word she can get what she came for

Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven

 

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure

'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings

In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings

Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven

Ooh, it makes me Wonder…

 

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west

And my spirit is crying for leaving

In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees

And the voices of those who stand looking

Ooh, it makes me wonder…

 

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune

Then the piper will lead us to reason

And a new day will dawn for those who stand long

And the forests will echo with laughter

  

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now

It's just a spring clean for the May queen

Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run

There's still time to change the road you're on

And it makes me Wonder…

  

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know

The piper's calling you to join him

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know

Your stairway lies on the whispering wind

  

And as we wind on down the road

Our shadows taller than our soul

There walks a lady we all know

Who shines white light and wants to show

How everything still turns to gold

And if you listen very hard

The tune will come to you at last

When all is one and one is all

To be a rock and not to roll

 

And she's buying a stairway to heaven

174. Stand by me          (Ben.E. King)

 

When the night has come

And the land is dark

And the moon is the only light we'll see

No I won't be afraid

Oh, I won't be afraid

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

So darling, darling

 

Stand by me, oh stand by me

Oh stand, stand by me

Stand by me

 

If the sky that we look upon

Should tumble and fall

Or the mountain should crumble to the sea

I won't cry, I won't cry

No, I won't shed a tear

Just as long as you stand, stand by me

And darling, darling

 

Stand by me, oh stand by me

Oh stand now, stand by me

Stand by me

 

Violons

 

So darling, darling

Stand by me, oh stand by me

Oh stand now, stand by me, stand by me

Whenever you're in trouble won't you stand by me

Oh stand by me, won't you stand now, oh, stand

Stand by me

175. Still loving you       (Scorpions)

Time, it needs time 
To win back your love again. 
I will be there, I will be there. 

Love, only love 
Can bring back your love someday. 
I will be there, I will be there. 

Fight, babe, I'll fight 
To win back your love again. 
I will be there, I will be there. 

Love, only love 
Can break down the walls someday. 
I will be there, I will be there. 

If we'd go again 
All the way from the start, 
I would try to change 
The things that killed our love. 

Your pride has build a wall, so strong 
That I can't get through. 
Is there really no chance 
To start once again? 
I'm loving you. 

Try, baby try 
To trust in my love again. 
I will be there, I will be there. 

Love, your love 
Just shouldn't be thrown away. 
I will be there, I will be there. 

If we'd go again 
All the way from the start, 
I would try to change 
The things that killed our love. 

Your pride has build a wall, so strong 
That I can't get through. 
Is there really no chance 
To start once again? 

If we'd go again 
All the way from the start, 
I would try to change 
The things that killed our love. 

Yes I've hurt your pride, and I know 
What you've been through. 
You should give me a chance 
This can't be the end. 

I'm still loving you. 
I'm still loving you, 
I need your love. 
I'm still loving you. 
Still loving you, baby...
