cada paso que das





en las fiestas que me tocaba poner la musica, siempre trataba de agradar a todos, unos pedian mas rock otros mas salsa otros merengue o bachata, en fin despues de tanto baile hacia bien algun descanso y apagaba las luces de la sala de la casa de la fiesta y ponia algunos temas lentos romanticos para las parejas de enamorados, novios, o para aquellos que estaban afanando...

una vez yo estaba ahi viendola a ella y pensaba que era mi oportunidad, sin pensar mucho puse "Every breath you take" de The Police y la saque a bailar y le susurre lo mas dulce que pude la letra de la cancion en su oido, eramos ella y yo solos en la pista de baile, ahora que recuerdo ese momento se me dibuja una sonrisa en mi rostro, lo que paso entre ella y yo despues de terminar la cancion se pierde en los pasillos de la universidad, pero como diria Rick en Casablanca "nosotros siempre tendremos Paris"...

bailables

aqui unos temas bailables para la fiesta de fin de año, definitivamente ya pasadas de moda, debido a mi edad y lo poco interesante que me parece la mayoria de musica actual, no encuentro algun tema de estos dias que me motiven bailar, quiza algun remix del ultimo album de Depeche Mode o algo por ahi, quiza Scissors Sisters ofrezca algo..
---------------------------------------------------------


en varias fiestas con amigos de la universidad, yo ponia la musica era la epoca del cassette y de los vinilos aun, infaltable Chic para mantener vivo el espiritu disco

Chic - Le Freak



---------------------------------------------------------
cuando aun se llamaba John Cougar, esta cancion era infaltable en cada fiesta y era un tema muy motivador, y al bailarla todos la cantabamos,

John Cougar Hurts so good



---------------------------------------------------------
aun mejor que lo real, gran version bailable de U2, y el inicio de muchos remixes de las canciones de U2

U2 Even better than the real thing

Nunca te dejare

Recuerdo una fiesta de fin de año en 1987 donde puse esta cancion para bailar, por cierto puse el disco de vinilo, ya no se bailan estas canciones en fin de año...
Rick Astley ya fue, pero su recuerdo marca uno de mis momentos bailables...







We're no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do I
A full commitment's what I'm thinking of
You wouldn't get this from any other guy

I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling
Gotta make you understand

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

We've known each other for so long
Your heart's been aching but you're too shy to say it
Inside we both know what's been going on
We know the game and we're gonna play it

And if you ask me how I'm feeling
Don't tell me you're too blind to see

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

(Ooh give you up)
(Ooh give you up)
(Ooh) never gonna give, never gonna give (give you up)
(Ooh) never gonna give, never gonna give (give you up)

We've known each other for so long
Your heart's been aching but you're too shy to say it
Inside we both know what's been going on
We know the game and we're gonna play it

I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling
Gotta make you understand

El tamborilero

Yo diria, que este es casi una rareza de video, en 1977 se juntan Bing Crosby y David Bowie para cantar esta cancion de Navidad, para un especial para la TV...





David: Hello...... you're the new butler?
Bing: Hahaha! Well, it's been a long time since I've been the new anything!
David: What's happened to Hudson?
Bing: I guess he's changing.
David: Yeah, he does that a lot, doesn't he? Uhm... Oh, I'm David Bowie, I live
down the road.
Bing: Oh!
David: Sir Percival let's me use his piano if he not around. He's not around, is
he?
Bing: I can honestly say I haven't seen him, but come on in! Come in!
David: But uh...
Bing: Come on in!
David: Are you related to sir Percival?
Bing: Well, distantly...
David: Oh, you're not the poor relation from America, right?
Bing: Ha! Gee... news sure travels fast, doesn't it? I'm Bing.
David: Oh, I'm pleased to meet you. You're the one that sings, right?
Bing: Well, right or wrong, I sing either way.
David: Oh well, I sing too.
Bing: Oh good! What kind of singing?
David: Mostly the contemporary stuff. Do you eh... do you like modern music?
Bing: Oh, I think it's marvellous! Some of it's really fine. But tell me, have you ever listened to any of the older fellows?
David: Oh yeah, sure. I like ah... John Lennon and the other one with eh...Harry
Nilsson.
Bing: Mmm... you go back that far, uh?
David: Yeah, I'm not as young as I look.
Bing: Haha, none of us is these days!
David: In fact I've got a six year old son. And he really gets excited around the Christmas holiday-thing.
Bing: Do you go in for anything of the traditional things in the... boy, household, Christmas time?
David: Oh yeah, most of them really. Presents, tree, decorations, agents sliding down the chimney...
Bing: What??
David: Oh, I was just seeing if you were paying attention.
Bing: Haha!
David: Actually, our family do most of the things that other families do. We
sing the same songs.
Bing: Do you?
David: Oh, I even have a go at 'White Christmas'.
Bing: You do, eh!
David: And this one. This is my son's favourite. Do you know this one?
Bing: Oh, I do indeed, it's a lovely theme.

And they told me pa-ram-pam-pam-pam
A new-born king to see pa-ram-pam-pam-pam
Our finest gifts we bring pa-ram-pam-pam-pam
Ra-pam-pam-pam, ra-pam-pam-pam

Peace on Earth, can it be
Years from now, perhaps we'll see
See the day of glory
See the day, when men of good will
Live in peace, live in peace again

Peace on Earth, can it be
Every child must be made aware
Every child must be made to care
Care enough for his fellow man
To give all the love that he can

I pray my wish will come true
For my child and your child too
He'll see the day of glory
See the day when men of good will
Live in peace, live in peace again

Peace on Earth, can it be
Can it be

Bing: It's a pretty theme, isn't it?

It's Christmas ... baby, please come home Yeah

Christmas Lots of people around
Christmas Baby, please come home

The church bells in town
Christmas They're ringin' a song
Christmas What a happy sound
Christmas Baby, please come home

They're singin' 'Deck the Halls'
But it's not like Christmas at all

Pretty lights on the tree

Christmas You should be here with me
Christmas Baby, please come home
Baby, please come home
Baby, please come home

They're singin' 'Deck the Halls'
But it's not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

If there was a way
Christmas I'd hold back these tears
Christmas But it's Christmas day
Christmas Baby, please come home
Christmas Home
Christmas Baby, please come home
Christmas Baby, please come home
Christmas Baby, please come home
Christmas Home
Christmas Baby, please come home
