I HAS A SAD

There are no words which I can write that could describe the way we feel today.

It’s been a composite of so many life events.

It seems it’s not stopping.

Huge losses in so many ways that one can imagine.

It’s a fog that doesn’t want to lift.

2016: A ROUGH YEAR

Unless anyone’s residence is under a rock (not for 365 days), we all know how rough this year has been.

As years come to an end, there’s usually the perennial hope that the new one will bring good tidings and better things than the one that just ended.

However, it’s my personal belief that, we are in for a rougher ride in 2017 and beyond.

I really hope that I’m proven so wrong.

These lost lives can’t be replaced.

They will live in history and in the memory of our generation.

Dignity and self-respect can’t be replaced either and it will be much harder to recover.

I couldn’t have found this musical cover at a better time.

It’s another way to honor George Michael.

Hope you enjoy it!

George Michael …. “James Corden’s Very First Carpool Karaoke Guest …. Comic Relief …. “!!


gm-k

~~December 27, 2016~~ 

NAILED IT!

He was, of course, the very first musical guest to sit in the passenger seat of James Corden’s car, and sing along to one of his own numbers.

Sound familiar? 

Five years ago, when the idea of ‘James Corden, chat show supremo’ was but the twinkle in the eye of a stateside TV exec, George joined the comedic actor for a segment for the 2011 Comic Relief.

The idea was that James was having to drag, reluctantly, an un-cool mate along with him for the day. All the jokes were at the expense of George, his personal tribulations (”I thought we were going to pick up my photos”) and even his music. And, typically, he joined in with gusto. Even doing “sad face”.

And it worked so well, when James got the nod for his own show five years later, that one small sketch gave birth to ‘Carpool Karaoke’, a phenomenon that has gone on to include Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Madonna, Justin Bieber and even First Lady Michelle Obama. And it all started with George.
 Bravo.

Enjoy again!

ONE YEAR IN A GRAPHIC

2016 has been quite the year.

So many people have been lost, starting with David Bowie and yesterday with George Michael.

Plenty other events have taken place which have, or will affect, the history of our current worldwide society.

Take a look and see which ones you can recognize!

‘LAST CHRISTMAS’

This has always been one of my favorite Christmas songs!

I even got Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter hooked on it.

I remember, to this day, what I was doing when I first heard ‘Careless Whisper‘.

What a sad loss for the music world.

Gone too soon!!

~Pop Star George Michael Dead At 53~

 George Michael died of heart failure, according to his longtime manager Michael Lippman.

LONDON, Dec 25 (Reuters)

British singer George Michael, who became one of the pop idols of the 1980’s with Wham! and then forged a career as a successful solo artist with sometimes sexually provocative lyrics, died at his home in England on Sunday.

He was 53.
In the mid-1980’s, “Wham! was one of the most successful pop duos ever, ahead even of Simon & Garfunkel, with singles like “”Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go”, “”Careless Whisper”, ““Last Christmas” and ““The Edge of Heaven”.

At the end of the day …. “Four Days till Christmas”!!


~~December 21, 2014~~ 

Christmas is fast approaching. There are four days left before the holiday is upon us. This has been quite the year. As it comes to an end, we hope that this new coming year be better in many aspects.

It Is What It Is” will feature a special song every night as the countdown approaches.

A few days ago, we posted the celebration of the 30th anniversary of Band Aid “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” epic song.

Today we are presenting the original version. 

Do They Know It’s Christmas?” is a song written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure in 1984 to raise money for relief of the 1983–85 famine in Ethiopia. The original version was produced by Midge Ure and released byBand Aid on 28 November 1984.

In October 1984, a BBC television report by Michael Buerk was aired in the UK, which highlighted the famine that had hit the people of Ethiopia. Irish singer Bob Geldof saw the report and was inspired to raise money to relieve those affected by the famine. He called Midge Ure from Ultravox and together they quickly co-wrote the song, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”.

Band Aid is a charity super-group featuring mainly British and Irish musicians and recording artists. It was founded in 1984 by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise money for anti-poverty efforts in Ethiopia by releasing the song “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” for the Christmas market that year. On 25 November 1984, the song was recorded at Sarm West Studios in Notting Hill, London, and was released in the UK four days later. The single surpassed the hopes of the producers to become the Christmas number one on that release.

Two subsequent re-recordings of the song to raise further money for charity also topped the charts. The original was produced by Midge Ure. The 12″ version was mixed by Trevor Horn. It was announced on 7 November 2014 that a new version of the song was recorded by artists under the name of Band Aid 30.

In England, and much of the Northern Hemisphere, snow and numerous displays leave no doubt that Christmas is near. In most of Africa, however, it’s quite warm on December 25th, since it’s summer there.

This song asks us to think of those who are living in poverty and hunger in Africa during the Christmas season, reminding us that they might not even know it’s Christmas. While the sentiment and melody are full of good tidings, the lyrics are quite bleak:

“The Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom.”

Paul Young, Boy George, George Michael, Simon Le Bon, and Bono. The chorus included David Bowie, Phil Collins, Paul McCartney, Geldof, Ure and many other artists who weren’t given a verse but sang the “Feed The World” part and lent their images to the effort by appearing in the promotional photo. Check out the Band Aid photo with list of performers.
