On Dancing with the Stars, Cheryl Burke, the Mirror Ball Trophy-winning professional dancer returns to the show during the ninth week of performances. Cheryl will give an emotional sneak peek at her own live stage show, “Love on the Floor.” She brought the show to Japan first, in 2016, with Olympic gold medalist figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi who won Season 6 (2008) with Mark Ballas.
Cheryl says “Love on the Floor” is all “the relationships we go through – the romance, the passion, the hurt.” That said, she reassures fans that there is a happy ending in “Love on the Floor.”
Julian Lennon is a musician, photographer and a filmmaker. You can also add cook to that list. Some may not know this, but John Lennon’s son is very good in the kitchen, revealing that if he weren’t a singer or visual artist, he’d likely be a chef.
He wants to tell the story behind “Everything Changes,” his fifth studio album and the first to hit the U.S. in 15 years. The set comes nearly 30 years after Lennon unveiled his debut, “Vallotte,” which spawned the hit “Too Late for Goodbyes” and earned a young Lennon a best new artist Grammy nomination.
Ever since he’s been in and out of the music industry, exploring his other passions during those long stints in between albums. “I love the writing and recording and performing but all the business stuff in between is not something I care for too much…In regards to all the work I do I very much consider it from an angle of being a true artist,” said Lennon. “And a lot of use of was being made of whose son I was, Beatles…and all of that. And I wanted to push away from that – and I wanted to prove myself –- to myself first and foremost –- that was actually I guess as good as I think I am in the songwriting department and all the work I’m doing.”
But a couple of years ago, the timing for new music just felt right, so Lennon, 50, hit the studio to record the tracks for “Everything Changes.” The songs that made it on the album span many themes –- from romance and introspection to humanitarian concerns. The lead single, “Someday,” features mystical Eastern melodic motifs, as well as a guest appearance by Steven Tyler.
Beautiful way to start the day. I’v always loved this song. It’s so simple, quaint, inspiring and touching. It was one of the first pieces I learned to play on the guitar …. which of course, I have forgotten since. The guitar piece takes a major meaning today.
There’s romance in the air.
“Romance Anónimo” (Anonymous Romance) is a piece for guitar, also known as “Estudio en Mi de Rubira” (Study in E by Rubira), “Spanish Romance”, “Romance de España”, “Romance of the Guitar”, “Romanza” and “Romance d’Amour” among other names.
Its origins and authorship are currently in question. It is suspected of originally being a solo instrumental guitar work, from the 19th century. It has variously been attributed to Antonio Rubira, David del Castillo,Francisco Tárrega, Fernando Sor, Daniel Fortea, Miguel Llobet, Antonio Cano, Vicente Gómez and Narciso Yepes.
The Anónimo (anonymous) part of its name has been incorporated over the years due to this uncertainty. The question of authorship has probably been propagated by three main reasons: the lack of claim by its true author, the desire to avoid paying copyright fees, and the desire of publishing companies to claim the lucrative copyright of this world-famous piece.
The style of the piece is that of the Parlor music of the late 19th century in Spain or South America, having a closed three-part form: the first in the minor key and the second being in the major key, with the third being a restatement of the first.
Dicen que somos dos locos de amor que vivimos a espaldas del mundo real pretendiendo lograr de la gente un favor que nos dejen querernos en paz. Tienen envidia de vernos así abrazados y alegres cruzar la ciudad y quiesieran cortar éste amor de raíz que ellos nunca pudieron lograr. Yo sin tus besos me muero de sed sin los mios tambien tu no puedes estar nos queremos los dos que le vamos a hacer si la vida nos quiso juntar.
Tengo mis ojos tan llenos de tí que en mi cuerpo cariño no encuentro un lugar donde no mandes tú que éste amor que te di es el pulso de mi corazón. Sólo en tus brazos me siento feliz y me duermo despierto con dulce quietud escuchando al compás sonreír junto a mí el a liento de tu juventud. Dicen que somos dos locos de amor que vivimos a espaldas del mundo real pretendiendo lograr de la gente un favor que nos dejen querernos en paz.
