MJ Cover ” Annie You Ok? You Ok ? You Ok? You Ok? Annie? ” Alien Ant Farm

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “ 

 

This cover adds musical meat to what Michael Jackson wrote.  Michael Jackson was a complex example of an artist using the wrongs done to him to show that there is always a way to unleash your anger  that moves the world forward and at the same time grabbing a little justice for yourself.

Thanks Michael – you are not forgotten.

 

He lost some of the fights but overall he won.

 

 Song  Smooth Criminal        Band  Alien Ant  Farm (Cover of Micheal Jackson)

As he came into the window
Was a sound of a crescendo
He came into her apartment
He left the bloodstains on the carpet
She was sitting at the table
He could see she was unable
So she ran into the bedroom
She was struck down
It was her doom

Annie,you OK
you OK
you OK, Annie
Annie,you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie
Annie,you OK
You OK
You OK, Annie
Annie,you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie

Annie, are you OK
Will you tell us that you’re OK
There’s a sign at the window
That he struck you
A crescendo, Annie
He came into your apartment
He left the bloodstains on the carpet
Then you ran into the bedroom
You were struck down
It was your doom

Annie,you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie
Annie,you OK
You OK
Are you OK, Annie
Annie,you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie
You’ve been hit by
You’ve been struck by
A smooth criminal

So they came into the outway
It was Sunday
but a black day
I could made a salutation
Sounding heartbeats
Intimidations

Annie,you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie
Annie,you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie
Annie,you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie
Annie,you OK
You OK
Are you OK, Annie

Annie, are you OK
would you tell us that you’re OK
There’s a sign at the window
That he struck you
A crescendo, Annie
He came into your apartment
He left the bloodstains on the carpet
Then you ran into the bedroom
You were struck down
It was your doom

Annie, you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie
You’ve been hit by
You’ve been struck by
A smooth criminal

Annie, are you OK
would you tell us that you’re OK
There’s a sign at the window
That he struck you
A crescendo, Annie
He came into your apartment
He left the bloodstains on the carpet
Then you ran into the bedroom
You were struck down
It was your doom

Annie,you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie
Annie,you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie
Annie,you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie
Annie,you OK
You OK
you OK, Annie

Musical Artifact / Poem Duo

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

  

Song NAKED EYE

Band  LUSCIOUS JACKSON

  

It’s not a choice I tried to make
It’s not a thought I couldn’t take
Something told me it was time
To give you yours and leave me mine

My vision started to be clear
I watched the sunlight coming near
I knew the day I knew the night
I knew I could regain my sight

And it feels alright
And it feels alright

With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
With my naked eye
I saw all if I said it all, I could see

Last night I came into your home
To break some ice and throw some stones
I asked if we could be alone
I had some troubles of my own

Knew I had to say goodbye
To all the old things held inside
If I let the moment fly
I knew they’d all be magnified
And it feels alright
And it feels alright
 

 

With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
With my naked eye
I saw all if I said it all
I could see

With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
With my naked eye
I saw all if I said it all
I could see

Came around after dark
You are nothing but a lark
Know I snuck in like a narc
I knew I had to leave my mark

Wanted to be satisfied
I tried to be dignified
Wearing nothing is divine
Naked is a state of mind
And it feels alright
And it feels alright
 

 

With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
With my naked eye
I saw all if I said it all
I could see

With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
With my naked eye
I saw all if I said it all
I could see

It feels alright, it feels alright
It feels alright, it feels alright
It feels alright, it feels alright
It feels alright, it feels alright
It feels alright


POEM

A disgraceful sort of fella
He was a disgraceful sort of fella
egged people on

stood back with a baton

asked them to wait

while he ate

never lifted a finger…

walked away

because he had feet of clay –

and so it ends as it began

while he spends time getting a tan…

He was a disgraceful sort of fella.

Musical Artifact – ” Ojitos Negros” Y “El Relampago” Chieftans and Ry Cooder

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “ 

   

Wow!!!!!  Take a listen, break out the Sol and move my friends move!!!!  Life is too short to remain confused for too long! 

Adios los amigos” 

UNO 

 SONG      Ojitos Negros     Band  Chieftans w Ry Cooder

Esos ojitos negros que me miraban
esa mirada extraña que ME turbaba
esas palabras tuyas, maravillosas
esos besos robados y tantas cosasQuien te separó de mi
quien me robo tu querer
Lo que yo sufrí por ti
Nunca lo vas a saber
No te puedo perdonar, pero no obstante
no te podre olvidar ni un solo instante Nadie sabrá jamás, cuanto te quise
nadie comprenderá que nos paso
aunque el mundo ría feliz yo estare triste
esperando el retorno de nuestro amor x2 Pregones
(Si yo encuentro esos ojitos voy a ser feliz)
esos ojitos negros que embrujan, me han hechizado a mi
de mi vida, de mi vida son la luz, sin ellos no puedo vivir
Charlie hay ojos de miles colores, negritos me gustan a mi
Por eso voy a ser un infeliz si no encuentro esos ojitos
mi dulce amor (Bellos tus ojitos negros)
Pero que bellos, bellos, tus ojitos negros
(si no me miran me muero)
Si no me miran me desespero
Mirame mas mirame asi
por favor mirame A MI
tu no ves que tu mirar me provoca
ven y dame ese consuelo   

Easy to harmonize with especially after a few SOL's!! Bagpipes on one tiny part of that is so cool!

Translation Below,

  

Spanish to English translation ( thanks to Google)
 
Those black eyes looking at me
that look extra? to troubled ME
these words of yours, wonderful
stolen kisses and so much

  

  

Who do you part? my
whom I want to steal your
What I suffer? for you
You'll never know
I can not forgive, but nevertheless
no you can forget a single moment 
No one will know? jam? s, how much I loved you
anyone understand? what about us
although the world r? I'll be sad to happy
awaiting the return of our love x2 
Proclamations
(If I find those eyes I'll be happy)
Those black eyes that haunt, haunted me my
of my life, my life is the light, I can not live without them
Charlie is very colorful eyes, I like my little black
So I'll be a loser if I find those eyes
my sweet love 
(Bellos your black eyes)
But that beautiful, beautiful, your black eyes
(If not look at me I'm dying)
If you do not look at me I'm desperate
Look at me look at me more so
please look at me
you can not see me cause you look
come and give me that comfort
  
 
 

 

 

Then listen to El Relampago,

 

Relàmpago en el viento trae mucha electricidad
relàmpago en el viento trae mucha electricidad
acabe de querer si me tienes voluntad
acabe de querer si me tienes voluntadya viene relampagueando y el lucero no aparece
ya viene relampagueando y el lucero no aparece
y acabame de querer porque aqui nos amanece
y acabame de querer porque aqui nos amaneceya me voy porque amanece ya los gallos menudean
ya me voy porque amanece ya los gallos menudean
no quiero que me conozcan ni contigo que me vean
no quiero que me conozcan ni contigo que me vean

 

 

 Translation below – just dance..

  Relax in the wind brings a lot of electricity
mpage relationship in the wind brings a lot of electricity
I just wanted if you will
I just wanted if you willand is flashing and the star does not appear
and is flashing and the star does not appear
and Break me down here because we want to sunrise
and Break me down here because we want to sunriseI’m going because sunrise and redouble cocks
I’m going because sunrise and redouble cocks
I do not know me or you see me
I do not know me or you see me

Musical Artifacts – Clint Eastwood-Gorillaz / William Tell Overture-Rossini

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog” 

Lone Ranger
Moore-LoneRanger.jpg

This pair of songs, have in common- one thing…after you get done listening to them you feel like you’ve ridden a horse! 

 One  a slow sunny trot, the other a do- or- die gallop, listen they capture the essence of riding and are 2 WOW! musical presentations.

GORILLAZ   Band       CLINT  EASTWOOD   Song

Ooo ooo ooo ooo
I aint happy, I’m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long the future is comin’ on

I aint happy, I’m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long the future is comin’ on,
It’s comin’ on, It’s comin’ on, It’s comin’ on, It’s comin’ on

Yeah, ha Ha HA!
Finally someone let me outa my cage
Now time for me is nothin’ cuz I’m countin’ no age
Nah, I couldn’t be theirs, now you shouldn’t be scared
I’m good at repairs (s’all simple), and I’m under each snare
Intangible (aww dawg), I bet you didn’t think so, I command you to
Panoramic view (you),
Look I’ll make it all manageable
Pick and choose (hmph),
Sit and loose,
All you different crews.
Chicks and dudes,
So who you think is really kickin’ tunes?
Picture you gettin down in tha picture tube,
Like you lit the fuse
You think it’s fictional?
Mystical? maybe
Spiritual?
Hearable
who appears in you ta clear your view (yeah) when your too crazy
Lifeless,
to those a definition for what life is
Priceless,
To you because I put you on the hype shit
You like it? Gun smokin’.
righteous with one token.
Psychic among those,
Possess you with one go.

I aint happy, I’ m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long the future is comin’ on

Iint happy, I’ m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long the future (that’s right) is comin’ on,
it’s comin’ on, it’s comin’ on, it’s comin’ on, it’s comin’ on

The essence, the basics,
Without it you make it
Allow me to make this
child-like-in-nature.
Rhythm, you have it or you don’t
That’s a fallacy.
I’m in ’em
Every sprouting tree, every child apiece
Every cloud and sea
You see with your eyes,
I see destruction and demise
Corruption in the skies (that’s right)
From this fuckin’ enterprise,
Now I’m sucked into your lies
Through Russel not his muscles but percussion he provides
With me as their (say what) guide
Y’all can see me now cuz you don’t see with you eye
You perceive with your mind
That’s the inner (fuck em)
So I’ma stick around with Russ and be a mentor
Bust a few rhymes (mmm mmmm) so mother fuckers remember
What the thought is
I brought all this, so you can survive when law is lawless(right here)
Feelings, sensations that you thought was dead (yup)
No squealing, remember that it’s all in your head

I ain’t happy, I’m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long the future is comin’ on

I ain’t happy, I’ m feelin glad
I got sunshine in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long my future is comin’ on
it’s comin’ on it’s comin’ on it’s comin’ on it’s comin’ on
My future is comin’ on,
it’s comin’ on, it’s comin’ on,
My future is comin’ on
it’s comin’ on, it’s comin’ on,
My future
(chirp chirp chirp)

William Tell Overture  MUSIC         Rossini   SONGWRITER

Note:

The overture to the opera William Tell, especially its high-energy finale, is a very familiar work composed by Gioachino Rossini. There has been repeated use (and sometimes parody) of this overture in the popular media, most famously for being the theme music for the Lone Ranger radio and television shows, and it is quoted by Dmitri Shostakovich in his Symphony No. 15. William Tell was the last of Rossini’s 39 operas, after which he went into semi-retirement, although he continued to compose cantatas, sacred music, and secular vocal music.

Song  HAPPY BIRTHDAY GUADALUPE      Band KILLERS

The Killers – Happy Birthday Guadalupe Lyrics

Well I woke up Christmas morning and what did I see?
I saw a lovely señorita looking back at me
Named Guadalupe, with big brown eyes
Boy what did you do this time?

Made my excuses and a beeline for the bedroom door
She was beggin’ and a-pleadin’, screamin’, “Por favor,
Mi cumpleaños, stay with me,
Baby it’s cold outside”

We are livin’ in a difficult time
We’ve been walkin’ down a difficult line
Put your feet up baby, it’s Christmas time
Cumpleaños feliz
Happy Birthday Guadalupe

(Our time will come)
(We both hold on)

She gave me coffee and tortillas to console my head
Prepared the slippers on my feet before she made our bed
And blew the candles from her favourite cake
And we kissed beneath the mistletoe

I pulled her body close to mine and I had just one chance
I whispered, “Baby will you marry me for just one dance?”
Infatuation, the things you say
I got scared and I left that night

‘Cause we are livin’ in a difficult time
We’ve been walking down a difficult line
Put your feet up baby, it’s Christmas time
Cumpleaños feliz
Happy Birthday Guadalupe

Deck the halls with rosaries
Wish upon a Christmas tree
Silent night please come to me
Bearing gifts from my… my Mexican angel

At night I wake up cold and lonely, bustin’ at the seams
She haunts the early morning hours of December dreams
My Guadalupe, with big brown eyes
I wanna break the spell tonight

‘Cause we are livin’ in a difficult time
We’ve been walkin’ down a difficult line
Put your feet up baby, it’s Christmas time
Cumpleaños feliz
Happy Birthday Guadalupe

Happy Birthday Guadalupe
