    Mr. Angelo, This may work for my little karaoke project. Thanks! I think it was out in about 1984, and I don't know all the music and almost none of the words. It will take me a month to remember all that, but it's a cool song, and I think the group of karaoke enthusiasts I sing and listen to will like it.

    Knock em dead kid. Sade's vocals are a little tricky because of all the time changes and
    her off-beat rhythm variations ....and a lot of subtle nuances ( vibrato, trilling ....) in her voice - she makes you feel every word .

    Simple songs but in context a lot to remember without reading
    in her performances.

    In heaven's name why are you walking away
    Hang on to your love
    In heaven's name why do you play these games
    Hang on to your love

    Take time if you're down on luck
    It's so easy to walk out on love
    Take your time if the going gets tough
    It's so precious

    So if you want it to get stronger
    You'd better not let go
    You gotta hold on longer
    If you want your love to grow

    Gotta stick together
    Hand in glove

    Hold tight, don't fight
    Hang on to your love

    In heaven's name why are you walking away
    Hang on to your love
    In heaven's name why do you play these games
    Hang on to your love

    Be brave when the journey is rough
    It's not easy when you're in love
    Don't be ashamed when the going gets tough
    It's not easy don't give up

    If you want it to get stronger
    You'd better not let go
    You gotta hold on longer
    If you want your love to grow

    Gotta stick together
    Hand in glove
    Hold tight, don't fight
    Hang on to your love

    In heaven's name why are you walking away
    Hang on to your love
    In heaven's name why do you play these games
    Hang on to your love

    "La De Da" Ringo Starr


    I live my life, it's only right
    'Cause i can't live your life for you.
    I'm satisfied, feeling high
    'Cause i found out just what to do.
    Oh, you can bet i never let the things i get get the best of me.
    When i get blue, here's what i do and so can you,
    It is no mystery when you sing.

    La; la de da, like que sera sera,
    Whatever la de da, la de da,
    All you gotta say is la de da.

    You don't need to cry,
    No reason why is ever good enough for me.
    We can take a walk, just laugh and talk,
    Whatever's going to be will be.
    And when it rains i don't complain, i'm like a train, i just keep rolling on.
    Sometimes you lose, you blow a fuse, you're not immune
    To what's been going on, sing along.

    La; la de da, like que sera sera,
    Whatever la de da, la de da,
    All you gotta say is la de da
    Oo-oo

    And when you're down, it can be found, turn it around, you know the remedy.
    (you always get what you always get, you always get what you always get)
    Just cut some slack, don't look back 'cause it's a fact it will be okay
    When you say

    La; la de da, like que sera, sera,
    Whatever la de da, la de da,
    All you gotta say is la de da
    Oh yeah
    Just like doris day said, "que sera,"
    La; la de da,
    La; la de da,
    La^; la de da,
    All you gotta say is la de da,
    All i gotta say is; all we gotta say is,
    It's the only way is la de da.
    La; la de da,
    La; la de da,
    La; la de da,
    Come on. Ev'rybody
    La; la de da,
    This one's for you, mate
    La; la de da,
    It went la de da, i say
    La; la de da,
    La; la de da,
    Come on, join me with this line!
    La; la de da,
    La; la de da,
    La -​

    Autumn Leaves, performed by Andy Williams


    The falling leaves drift by the window
    The Autumn leaves of red and gold
    I see your lips, the summer kisses
    The sunburned hand I used to hold

    Since you went away the days grow long
    And soon I'll hear old winter's song
    But I miss you most of all, my darling
    When Autumn leaves start to fall

    I see your lips, the summer kisses
    The sunburned hand I used to hold

    Since you went away the days grow long
    And soon I'll hear old winter's song
    But I miss you most of all, my darling
    When Autumn leaves start to fall.​

    Songwriters: Jacques Prévert, Johnny Mercer, Joseph Kosma

    AT Karaoke this week, sang Ringo Starr's "La De Da" - and it was a hit! Everybody liked it. I put everything I had into it, though. The doctor diagnosed "asthma" the last visit, and it sure takes everything it can away from you, but I've been going to the gym a lot lately, working on aerobic walking which helps the O2 levels you need in those lungs to carry and make a statement in song. It's a cheerful thing that Ringo Starr wrote, and it was a pleasure to give it all I had. We have some pretty stiff critics, but that's got to be my best performance so far, with our Karaoke group. People can hear it in the restaurant, and it's really great when you walk through to the front door, and people recognize you. I missed a lot of Tuesday nights, because of having pneumonia for several months through the fall and winter after taking a pneumonis preventive shot. Duh. If anyone is going to get sick from an attenuated virus which gets converted back to the original illness (not attenuated,) sick is me, and it lasted through the months of spring, too, except by then it had weakened my lungs to the point of inviting pneumonia's ugly sister bronchitis when the pneumonia spent herself out while I suffered, singing rarely, since there were a couple of good days now and then. Also Tues. I sang CCR's Run Through the Jungle (John Cameron Fogerty) and Carly Simon's "I Haven't Got Time for the Pain," which went reasonably well, but it still needs work. The Viet Nam vets liked Run through the Jungle. I'm pretty sure Fogerty wrote that when he or a member of the Army escaped enemy fire by running through the Jungle areas of Viet Nam. I did my best to bring out the feeling of fear first-time army members must've experienced when up against determined enemies who ended many an American life (think the number was around 60,000 fallen Americans).
    I've been listening to Carly & Company this evening, reviewing her songs, and there are a couple of more I may do sometime in the future. I've done Karaoke on 5 or 6 of her wonderful songs. It's truly fun to sing what she sang in the years I was too busy being a full-time mommy and worker to help my husband with his investment practices with his income. It was fun to work while the children as they grew older, needed me less and less. It's 1 am here. and I'm doing a lot better thanks to a very cool friend posting some upbeat songs elsewhere when I was feeling awful. I hadn't thought about my husband in a few days, but his death was hard, being all I had of good living in my life revolved around him since he retired int he year in or around 2000, maybe a year or two before that. He liked it that way, hated entertaining, so I became reclusive to try and keep him happy. Dementia is a very demanding disease if you're the caregiver and all else. It's early hours morning.. :sleep: 'Nighters. :)

    I can't light no more of your darkness
    All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
    I'm growing tired and time stands still before me
    Frozen here on the ladder of my life

    Too late to save myself from falling
    I took a chance and changed your way of life
    But you misread my meaning when I met you
    Closed the door and left me blinded by the light

    Don't let the sun go down on me
    Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
    I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
    But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

    I can't find the right romantic line
    But see me once and see the way I feel
    Don't discard me just because you think I mean you harm
    But these cuts I have they need love to help them heal
