~Favorite Sun Songs~




*Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun*

In my eyes, indisposed
In disguise as no one knows
Hides the face, lies the snake
The sun in my disgrace
Boiling heat, summer stench 'Neath the black the sky looks dead
Call my name through the cream
And I'll hear you scream again

Chorus:
Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come


Stuttering, cold and damp
Steal the warm wind tired friend
Times are gone for honest men
And sometimes far too long for snakes
In my shoes, a walking sleep
And my youth I pray to keep
Heaven send Hell away
No one sings like you anymore

Chorus x 2
Hang my head, drown my fear
Till you all just disappear

Repeat chorus til end



Bill Withers - Ain't No Sunshine


Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
She's always gone too long
Anytime she goes away.

Wonder this time where she's gone
Wonder if she's gone to stay
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away.

And I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know,
Hey, I oughtta leave young thing alone
But ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Only darkness every day
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away

I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know,
Hey, I oughtta leave young thing alone
But ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Only darkness every day
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away



They Might Be Giants - Why Does the Sun Shine?

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where hydrogen is built into helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

Yo ho, it's hot, the sun is not
A place where we could live
But here on Earth there'd be no life
Without the light it gives

We need its light
We need its heat
We need its energy
Without the sun, without a doubt
There'd be no you and me

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where hydrogen is built into helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

The sun is hot
It is so hot that everything on it is a gas: iron, copper, aluminum, and many others.
The sun is large
If the sun were hollow, a million Earths could fit inside. And yet, the sun is only a middle-sized star.
The sun is far away
About 93 million miles away, and that's why it looks so small.
And even when it's out of sight
The sun shines night and day

The sun gives heat
The sun gives light
The sunlight that we see
The sunlight comes from our own sun's
Atomic energy

Scientists have found that the sun is a huge atom-smashing machine. The heat and light of the sun come from the nuclear reactions of hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, and helium.*

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where hydrogen is built into helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

Woo-Hoo, Happy Friday Beachie!!

My week just flew by, and we have one more 60 degree day before the rains start again.

No big plans other than lunch with daughter-girl, maybe some early Spring cleaning.

See ya soon, have a bodacious weekend!

Good morning, Pro ((HUGS))

Your weather sounds about the same as most of the country...and it gives me a glimpse of what it’ll be like in about a week.

My yard needs work but my back has been hurting. Wonder if I can convince Mr. Beachy to hire a young guy to do it for us. (rolling eyes). We’re both so busy it’s just another chore on top of it all. Camel...back...

This weekend I’m finishing the final prep on another book to submit to editor. Then start a re-write on Book 2.

Young son (who’s been out of work for a couple years other than piece meal) has an interview today. Fingers crossed it works out.

Other than that...normal Friday.

Have a grandocious weekend.

Here Comes the Sun-The Beatles

Good choice. My favorite version was Eric Idle doing a cover in his best "Gumby Theatre" persona.

Very nice topic!

Although the sun is mentioned only once, it’s Van the Man singing it so it can’t be wrong.

Into the Mystic by Van Morrison

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVAnlke_xUY

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was one as we sailed into the mystic
Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic

And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home
And when the fog horn blows I want to hear it
I don’t have to fear it

And I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And magnificently we will fold into the mystic

When that fog horn blows you know I will be coming home
And when that fog horn whistle blows I got to hear it
I don’t have to fear it

And I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And together we will fold into the mystic
Come on girl...


Have a great weekend!

SC
