THE RIDE — Music Themes (oops — supposed to be THE DRIVE)

JOHNNY chose the Music Theme THE RIDE for this week.  Oops, looks like Johnny said THE DRIVE, rather than the ride.  But I done did it this way.

Night Ride Across the Caucasus —  Loreena McKennitt
8min. 28sec.
amindenandel
LYRICS
Ride on Through the night Ride on
Ride on Through the night Ride on
(chorus)
There are visions, there are memories
There are echoes of thundering hooves
There are fires, there is laughter
There’s the sound of a thousand doves
(chorus)
In the velvet of the darkness
By the silhouette of silent trees
They are watching, they are waiting
They are witnessing life’s mysteries
(chorus)
Cascading stars on the slumbering hills
They are dancing as far as the sea
Riding o’er the land, you can feel its gentle hand
Leading on to its destiny
(chorus)
Take me with you on this journey
Where the boundaries of time are now tossed
In cathedrals of the forest
In the words of the tongues now lost
Find the answers, ask the questions
Find the roots of an ancient tree
Take me dancing, take me singing
I’ll ride on till the moon meets the sea
(chorus x2)

BolyongóHoldrejtek — The Moon and The Nightspirit
6min. 32sec.
Raphael Davant
LYRICS
Anyagba merülő,
egekre feltörő
Bolyongó, álmodó
ember és varázsló

Hamvak közt parázslik,
szén-éjben kialszik,
csillagban kinyílik,
ég-mélybe lehullik

Semmibe rohanó,
sötétből fényt gyúró
Bolyongó, álmodó
ember és varázsló

Hamvak közt parázslik,
szén-éjben kialszik,
csillagban kinyílik,
ég-mélybe lehullik

Māori Whale Riders | Whales  
“whales.fieldmuseum.org/behind/people/maori-whale-riders
Accordingto this legend, Paikea (the whale rider) assumed his name from this humpback whale which rescued him after his brother tried to drown him at sea. The whale later carried Paikea to the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island, where he became the founder of the Ngāati Porou, a Māori tribe.”

MY RIDE
.
Where am
I riding?
Take me?
Do I ride
Into imagination?
Do I ride
Into tomorrow?
Do I ride
Into your memory?
Do I ride
Away from
Destiny?
Am I the rider,
The ride
The journey,
And destination?
Does the ride
Have ending?

Music Theme — All things TV

———————————————————————————————————————-

1.   Where did you see THE WIZARD OF OZ?  TV of course.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow – Judy Garland 1939

———————————————————————————————————————–

2.  Cowboy  Shows   RAWHIDE

Rawhide  — Frankie Laine

————————————————————————————————————————

3.   Cleaned up war in our living rooms:  M.A.S.H.

M.A.S.H.  theme song      Are you aware of the lyrics?

SUICIDE IS PAINLESS

Through early morning fog I see
visions of the things to be
the pains that are withheld for me
I realize and I can see…
that suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.
The game of life is hard to play
I’m gonna lose it anyway
The losing card I’ll someday lay
so this is all I have to say.
suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.
The sword of time will pierce our skins
It doesn’t hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger…watch it grin.
suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.
A brave man once requested me
to answer questions that are key
is it to be or not to be
and I replied ‘oh why ask me?’
suicide is painless
it brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.
…and you can do the same thing if you please……

4.  And of course a generation grew up with SESAME STREET

Outstanding performers, childhood enrichment programming , the Muppets, such persons as Nelson Mandela,  and characters like Ernie and Burt…

Stevie Wonder – Superstition live on Sesame Street.   Watch the child on the fire-escape.

————————————————————————————————————————–

5.   RUSSIANS   Then there is the influence of TV that was not available in most homes , but with some technical cleverness some programming was available to an influential Irish composer/writer best known as Sting.   His friend’s hospitality in sharing the foreign programming in New York inspired this anti-nuclear holocaust song.

Sting – Russians (Live – Berlin 2010, HD)

Russians

In Europe and America
There’s a growing feeling of hysteria
Conditioned to respond to all the threats
In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets

Mr. Khrushchev said “We will bury you”
I don’t subscribe to this point of view
It’d be such an ignorant thing to do
If the Russians love their children too

How can I save my little boy
From Oppenheimer’s deadly toy
There is no monopoly in common sense
On either side of the political fence

We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

There is no historical precedent
To put the words in the mouth of the President
There’s no such thing as a winnable war
It’s a lie we don’t believe anymore

Mr. Reagan says “We will protect you”
I don’t subscribe to this point of view
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

We share the same biology
Regardless of ideology
What might save us, me, and you
Is if the Russians love their children too

Erik brought this song up in a reply to comment on his blog,  but I think it belongs here, too:

http://erikandrulis.wordpress.com/

Frank Zappa – I Am The Slime – 1973

” I am gross and perverted

I’m obsessed and deranged

I have existed for years

But very little has changed

I’m the tool of the government

And industry too

For I am destined to rule

And regulate you

I may be vile and pernicious

But you can’t look away

I make you think I’m delicious

With the stuff that I say

I am the best you can get

Have you guessed me, yet?

I’m the slime oozin’ out

From your TV set

You will obey me while I lead you

And eat the garbage that I feed you

Until the day that we don’t need you

Don’t go for help : no one will heed you

Your mind is totally controlled

It has been stuffed into my mold

And you will do as you are told

Until the rights to you are sold

“That’s right folks Don’t touch that dial”

Well, I am the slime from your video

Oozin’ along on your livin’room floor

I am the slime from your video

Can’t stop the slime, people, lookit me go “
