Favorite "Sun" Song - Tell us your Favorites - Freeper Canteen - 9 March 2012
The Canteen Crew

~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

You are a wealth of musical knowledge.    You ought to write a book!    (Or have you already?)   Are you familiar with the stories behind hymns and gospel songs too?

(Thanks for sharing your knowledge here.)

Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying--Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five, 1946

This record isn't of the greatest quality, but it's the only recording of the original version of the Jordan opus that I could find on Youtube. Jordan, perhaps best known for rockers such as Saturday Night Fish Fry (1949) and Choo Choo, Ch'Boogie (1946) slows things down a bit here.

Aloha, Hawaii...sun today?

We have a volcano threatening to blow.

The explosion was at Cleveland Volcano, located on an uninhabited Aleutian island 940 miles southwest of Anchorage.

While the exact size of the ash cloud it produced is unknown, it was believed to be small, as was a cloud the resulted from a similar explosion at the volcano in December, said Steve McNutt, a University of Alaska Fairbanks seismologist who works at the Alaska Volcano Observatory.

That cloud rose to less than 20,000 feet, lower than the levels used by large commercial jets, McNutt said.

Yes, I happen to be a big fan of hymns and gospel songs as well--traditional ones; I don't care for the "praise music" of today. My father was a church choir director, and my mother sang in the Old Fashioned Revival Hour Chorus Choir, and since their broadcasts are now available online, her voice can still be heard by anyone in the world with an Internet connection. Among my music reference books are several hymnals.

I saw it last night, too. We have clouds, wind and much colder weather today/tonight.

I would dearly LOVE to see the Northern lights someday! I heard they were supposed to be spectacular with the new sun burst or whatever it was. LOL!

The Distance To The Sun

There is no peace
Here in my mind
There's no way to see
We're all born blind
To some place some time
When we could feel like
We're joined inside
We can't always
See it with our eyes

But there is a world apart from what we know
There is a place the eyes will never show
We can be as one
And be farther than The Distance to the Sun
To the sun...
The Distance to the Sun

There is no use you'll never win
They'll only kick you back again
Back where you've been
And you're never satisfied
Your wants just change
You've been playing an unwinnable game

Half the time we're gone, we don't know why
Half of us are crying towards the sky
Once we're there we'll wonder why it took so long
Once we're there we'll know what we became
