I wish this was hours long - it's a few moments/eternal glimpse of dear Prince, and perhaps my favourite video of him. 

 

Watching today, I can imagine the collaboration that might have been - beam this Prince + today's Yuzuru, into a space with ice, together. A woman may Dream. 

 

I was blessed to see Prince play a few times, live, in London. Good memories! (I share his 7th June birthday, too. The flipside of Yuzuru's December 7th.)

I think they would have adored working together.  Beyond LGC, I mean.

 

Here's another sweet one - I love this Sometimes It Snows song.

 

 

 

 

There are other versions of Sometimes it Snows - of course - here's a Beauty-Full one -

Anyone else watching Eurovision song contest? Before the final we could wish our favorite Eurovision songs and someone wished to hear this. And now I miss Yuzu...

I'll be honest, I had no idea Il Volo went to Eurovision. :O But that was a pleasant surprise! What place did Italy get that year?

Barbara's song was so powerful and beautiful, every single word was running out of her tongue in such an emotional. This song made me even consider taking French more seriously at school; WAAAAAAY too powerful. It's also very nice to see that pure talent managed to get such a high place without a single help from special effects and edit tricks.

They were third overall, but I believe they won the audience voting. This was the winner.

We sang this song at school recently and it's quite a sad one actually, the story it tells and the message it gives... It's pretty painful, but I guess it's up to the listener to decide for themselves if they want to believe that this world will never change. 

 

 

English lyrics: 

 

Spoiler
Listen now to the story of Kemal,
a young prince of the east,
descendant of Sinbad the mariner
who believed he would change the world
but bitter are the intents of Allah
and dark the souls of mankind.
 
In the far east least of places
once upon a time too long ago,
a flask lay down empty,
water moldy all along.
In town Mosul in town Basra
at the old date palm tree,
weary now cry the children
of the desert ancestry
Only a youth of chosen legacy
only a scion of royal blood
Shrieks the mourning song of woe
and heads towards the old tree.
 
Bedouin folk stare and wonder
with eyes full of misery.
Oath to Allah he now binds them
yearning years are about thy.
Lords high mighty caught a glimpse
of the youth's nigh bravery,
off they go the wrathful wretches,
wolves of envy, lions of sin.
Two the rivers trailing heaven
Euphrates and Tigris both
wide and wild goes the hunting
for the renegade son.
 
On him falls the scourge like rabid
lithe unruly hounds of gore
tied chained he meets the Hangman.
Caliph's vengeful horrid hand,
black the promise milk and honey
of the rushing morning scene
all for giving up his promise
gasping one last final glee.
Figures holding fast the shutters
pair of camels red scarf wind
prophet solemnly stands porter
paradise now welcomes thy.
 
Side by side high and low
clouds gather as they strove
if not only for Damascus's
soaring glory star of hope.
A month and a year later
face they gaze to Allah
who all knowing and all forceful
speaks his truth to rash Sevah:
"My downtrodden dandy
come what may men don't change
whole cold steel and blazing fire
realms of men are born to be"
 
Sweet night to thee Kemal,
this world can never change.
 
Goodnight.
 
 
(I touched up a few lyrics myself, the translation isn't the exact same as it is in Greek but I'm guessing that this specific translation is for people to sing in English.)
