TracyThey’ve done it again!  Band Aid 20 has released the New version of “Do They Know it’s Christmas Time At All”, this year written by Bob Geldof and Midged Ure on Mercury Records.  Band Aid has a who’s who of contemporary British Rock, Pop, R & B and Urban Music.   Bono, Paul McCartney, Keane, The Sugarbabes, Dido, Robbie Williams, Chris Martin, Snow Patrol, to name a few have contributed to this wonderful arrangement!  You can see the list in it’s entirety if you go to the Band Aid20 link.  There is the record but also a DVD which is a “behind the scenes” look at the making of the charity single.

50 % of Africans are children and most of these children go to bed each night hungry which is intolerable.  It’s doesn’t matter what you give as long as you do.  Time, money, guidance, it all helps to make the world a better place!

Music Lyrics…

I love listening to the Lyrics of my favorite artists. Lyrics make us question our lives, relive a moment, inspire and lift us up, allow us to lose our inhibitions or simply make us smile.  Here are a few that do just that for me.  You’ll see why.

This Time…Jonathon Rhys Meyers (August Rush)

I’ve been sitting watching life pass from the sidelines
Been waiting for a dream to seep in through my blinds
I wondered what might happen if I left this all behind
Would the wind be at my back ? Could I get you off my mind
This time

(You Want to) Make a Memory…Jon Bon Jovi

Hello again, it’s you and me
Kinda always like it used to be
Sippin’ wine, killing time
Trying to solve life’s mysteries

How’s your life, it’s been awhile?
God it’s good to see you smile
I see you reaching for your keys
Looking for a reason not to leave

If you don’t know if you should stay
If you don’t say what’s on your mind
Baby just breathe
there’s nowhere else tonight we should be

You wanna make a memory?

And my all time favourite!

Better When Were Together…Jack Johnson

There’s no combination of words
I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing
But I can try for your heart,
our dreams, and they are made out of real things
like a shoebox of photographs
with sepia-toned loving
Love is the answer
at least for most of the questions in my heart,
Why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it’s so hard?
It’s not always easy and
sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together
