Sunday is music day 12 — June Tabor

I heard this on the radio last night and was impressed with it.

The song is Australian, the singer English.

Sunday is music day 8 — Blues for the Soul – Tropfest Australia 2008

“Peter Crowe gives us an insight into what music means to all of us and how it affects our well-being. Can music heal? Can it give us hope? Maybe the music will give you the answers.”

And here in Surry Hills I have just had a good conversation at The Shakespeare with Sirdan about Depression? — a good breakthrough. Still miles to go…

Sirdan is off to New Zealand for two weeks next weekend.

Sunday is music day 6: gay anthems

Shortly I have to venture out into a very damp Sunday to “cover” the Mardi Gras Fair Day for the South Sydney Herald, so you may expect pictures here and on the photoblogs shortly.

Meanwhile, consider the gay anthem. Read this excellent post if you are unsure what that means: My Eleven Favorite Gay Anthems.

Here is one of them.

Sunday is music day 4: for Mardi Gras — and the Welsh

Shirley Bassey and Bryn Terfel.

I am what I am
I am my own special creation
So come take a look
Give me the hook or the ovation
It’s my world that I want to have a little pride in
My world and it’s not a place I have to hide in
Life’s not worth a damn till you can say
Hey world I am what I am

I am what I am
I don’t want praise
I don’t want pity
I bang my own drum
Some think it’s noise
I think it’s pretty
And so what if I love each feather and each spangle
Why not try and see things from a different angle
Your life is a sham till you can say
Hey world I am what I am

I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses
I deal my own deck
Sometimes the ace
Sometimes the deuces
It’s my life and there’s no return and no deposit
One life, so it’s time to open up your closet
Life’s not worth a damn till you can say
Hey world I am what I am.

Sunday is music day 1

Yes, also showing my age — but the young won’t be hurt by being introduced to a considerable 20th century poet, among other things… And this 2008 reprise is brilliant, as relevant now as it was 40 years ago. Lyrics.

Come you masters of war
You that build all the guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks.

The lyrics of the second one are from the Book of Ecclesiastes. Judy Collins and Pete Seeger.
