Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris-“Love Hurts” from “Grievous Angel”



Grievous Angel was the second solo album by Gram Parsons, compiled from 1973 sessions and released four months after his death. It received great critical acclaim upon release, but failed to find commercial success, a fate shared with his previous efforts solo and with The Flying Burrito Brothers. Grievous Angel peaked at number 195 on the Billboard charts. Despite its modest sales, it is viewed as a successful example of the hybrid between country and rock and roll Parsons called “Cosmic American Music”.

In 2003, the album was ranked number 429 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The released album almost certainly deviates from the intended track listing Parsons had. Parsons’ widow, Gretchen, who had never cared for Harris’ relationship with her husband, moved her originally prominent presence on the original front cover of the album (the album being credited on that cover to “Gram Parsons with Emmylou Harris” and featuring a photograph of the two of them) and relegated her to a simple credit on the back cover. Additionally, Gretchen removed the original title track, “Sleepless Nights” and replaced the cover with a simple image of Parsons in a sea of blue. The rearranged album was released in January 1974.

After a ramshackle tour in the spring and summer of 1973, Gram Parsons again convened with his singing partner Emmylou Harris, various members of Elvis Presley’s “Hot Band”, including James Burton and Glen Hardin and the occasional guest (such as Bernie Leadon and Linda Ronstadt) to record his second solo album for Reprise Records. Lacking much-needed new material, Parsons quickly wrote two songs during the sessions (“Return of the Grievous Angel”, with lyrics by Boston-based poet and Parsons fan Thomas Brown; “In My Hour Of Darkness”, arranged by Harris) and looked to songs rejected for previous albums and to standard country songs to flesh out the scant material he came up with. In regards to the original material, “Brass Buttons” dated from Parsons’ brief stint as a Harvard-based folksinger in the mid-1960s; “Hickory Wind” had already been recorded with The Byrds; “$1000 Wedding”, about Parsons’ aborted plan to wed the mother of his daughter in ostentatious style, had been recorded in a plodding arrangement with the Flying Burrito Brothers circa 1970; “Ooh Las Vegas” had been rejected from GP.

In spite of the dearth of new material, the album took what its predecessor had presented and expanded the format of “Cosmic American Music”. With the album in the can, Parsons set off for Joshua Tree, California, where he would fatally overdose on September 19, 1973, dying the next day in nearby Yucca Valley.

The three tracks recorded during the sessions that had gone unreleased, “Sleepless Nights”, “The Angels Rejoiced in Heaven Last Night” and “Brand New Heartache”, were released on the posthumous 1976 Parsons/Flying Burrito Brothers album Sleepless Nights.

The Everly Brothers – Bird Dog / Till I kissed you



Bird dog lyrics:
Johnny is a joker (he’s a bird)
A very funny joker (he’s a bird)
But when he jokes my honey (he’s a dog)
His jokin’ ain’t so funny (what a dog)
Johnny is a joker that’s a’tryin’ to steal my honey (he’s a bird dog)
Johnny sings a love song (like a bird)
He sings the sweetest love song (ya ever heard)
But when he sings to my gal (what a howl)
To me he’s just a wolf dog (on the prowl)
Johnny wants to fly away and puppy-love my baby (he’s a bird dog)
Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
Hey, bird dog you’re on the wrong trail
Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own
Johnny kissed the teacher (he’s a bird)
He tiptoed up to reach her (he’s a bird)
Well he’s the teacher’s pet now (he’s a dog)
What he wants he’s been gettin’ now (what a dog)
He even made the teacher let him sit next to my baby (he’s a bird dog)
Hey, bird dog get away from my quail
Hey, bird dog you’re on the wrong trail
Bird dog you better leave my lovey-dove alone
Hey, bird dog get away from my chick
Hey, bird dog you better get away quick
Bird dog you better find a chicken little of your own

Till I kissed you lyrics:
Never felt like this until I kissed ya
How did I exist until I kissed ya
Never had you on my mind
Now you’re there all the time
Never knew what I missed ’til I kissed ya, uh-huh
I kissed ya, oh yeah
Things have really changed since I kissed ya, uh-huh
My life’s not the same now that I kissed ya, oh yeah
Mmm, ya got a way about ya
Now I can’t live without ya
Never knew what I missed ’til I kissed ya, uh-huh
I kissed ya, oh yeah
[Chorus:] You don’t realize what you do to me
And I didn’t realize what a kiss could be
Mmm, ya got a way about ya
Now I can’t live without ya
Never knew what I missed ’til I kissed ya, uh-huh
I kissed ya, oh yeah
[Chorus] [Fade] I kissed ya, uh-huh
I kissed ya, oh yeah

Elton John – Circle Of Life (High Quality)



Elton John – Circle Of Life
Elton John – Kruh Zivota

-Lyrics-

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
Theres more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

Some say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give

In the circle of life
Its the wheel of fortune
Its the leap of faith
Its the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle, the circle of life

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars

Theres far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round
