Billy Joe "B. J." Thomas (born August 7, 1942, Hugo, Oklahoma) is an American popular singer known for his chart-topping hits in the 1960s and 1970s. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is a 1969 American Western film that tells the story of bank robbers Butch Cassidy (played by Paul Newman) and his partner Harry Longabaugh, the "Sundance Kid" (played by Robert Redford), based loosely on historical fact. The film was directed by George Roy Hill and produced at 20th Century Fox by John Foreman from a screenplay by William Goldman. The music score was by Burt Bacharach with song lyrics by Hal David. Along with Newman and Redford, the film stars Katharine Ross as Etta Place, and features Strother Martin, Henry Jones, Jeff Corey, Sam Elliott, Cloris Leachman, Ted Cassidy, Kenneth Mars, and Donnelly Rhodes. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) is the likeably entertaining, charming and amusing comedy/drama of the friendship and camaraderie shared between the two handsome and humorous buddy leads - legendary, turn-of-the-century Western outlaws and their "Hole in the Wall" gang. Historical antecedents for the two daring "Robin Hood" outlaws actually existed, two notorious figures who were sadly anachronistic for their turn-of-the-century times: •"Butch Cassidy" (outlaw Robert Leroy Parker) •"The Sundance Kid" (outlaw Harry Longbaugh)

Ernest Jennings Ford (February 13, 1919 October 17, 1991), better known as Tennessee Ernie Ford, was an American recording artist and television host who enjoyed success in the country and Western, pop, and gospel musical genres. Ford scored an unexpected hit on the pop charts in 1955 with his rendition of Merle Travis' "Sixteen Tons," a sparsely arranged coal-miner's lament that Travis wrote in 1946, based on his own family's experience in the mines of Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. Its fatalistic tone contrasted vividly with the sugary pop ballads and the rock and roll just starting to dominate the charts at the time: You load sixteen tons, what do you get? Another day older and deeper in debt. Saint Peter, don't you call me, 'cause I can't go; I owe my soul to the company store... With a unique clarinet-driven pop arrangement by Ford's musical director, Jack Fascinato, "Sixteen Tons" spent ten weeks at number one on the country charts and eight weeks at number one on the pop charts, and made Ford a crossover star. It became Ford's 'signature song.' Lyrics: Some people say a man is made outta mud A poor man's made outta muscle and blood Muscle and blood and skin and bones A mind that's a-weak and a back that's strong You load sixteen tons, what do you get Another day older and deeper in debt Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go I owe my soul to the company store I was born one mornin' when the sun didn't shine I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal And the straw boss said "Well, a-bless my soul" You load sixteen tons, what do you get Another day older and deeper in debt Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go I owe my soul to the company store I was born one mornin', it was drizzlin' rain Fightin' and trouble are my middle name I was raised in the canebrake by an ol' mama lion Cain't no-a high-toned woman make me walk the line You load sixteen tons, what do you get Another day older and deeper in debt Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go I owe my soul to the company store If you see me comin', better step aside A lotta men didn't, a lotta men died One fist of iron, the other of steel If the right one don't a-get you Then the left one will You load sixteen tons, what do you get Another day older and deeper in debt Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go I owe my soul to the company store

Martin David Robinson (September 26, 1925 December 8, 1982), known professionally as Marty Robbins, was an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. One of the most popular and successful American country and Western singers of his era, for most of his nearly four-decade career, Robbins was rarely far from the country music charts, and several of his songs also became pop hits. The Alamo, originally known as Mission San Antonio de Valero, is a former Roman Catholic mission and fortress compound, now a museum, in San Antonio, Texas. The compound, which originally comprised a sanctuary and surrounding buildings, was built by the Spanish Empire in the 18th century for the education of local Native Americans after their conversion to Christianity. In 1793, the mission was secularized and soon abandoned. Ten years later, it became a fortress housing the Mexican Army group the Second Flying Company of San Carlos de Parras, who likely gave the mission the name "Alamo". Mexican soldiers held the mission until December 1835, when General Martin Perfecto de Cos surrendered it to the Texian Army following the siege of Bexar. A relatively small number of Texian soldiers then occupied the compound. Texian General Sam Houston believed the Texians did not have the manpower to hold the fort and ordered Colonel James Bowie to destroy it. Bowie chose to disregard those orders and instead worked with Colonel James C. Neill to fortify the mission. On February 23, Mexican General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna led a large force of Mexican soldiers into San Antonio de Bexar and promptly initiated a siege. The siege ended on March 6, when the Mexican army attacked the Alamo; by the end of the Battle of the Alamo all or almost all of the defenders were killed. When the Mexican army retreated from Texas at the end of the Texas Revolution, they tore down many of the Alamo walls and burned some of the buildings.

John Gale Horton (April 30, 1925November 5, 1960), known professionally as Johnny Horton, was an American country music singer who was most famous for his semi-folk, so-called "saga songs" which launched the "historical ballad" craze of the late 1950s and early 1960s. With them, he had several major crossover hits, most notably in 1959 with "The Battle of New Orleans" which won the 1960 Grammy Award for Best Country & Western Recording. The song won the Grammy Hall of Fame Award and in 2001 was named number 333 of the Songs of the Century. In 1960, Horton had two other crossover hits with "North to Alaska," in John Wayne's hit film, North to Alaska; and "Sink the Bismarck". Horton was also a rockabilly singer, and was inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame. North to Alaska (German Title: Land der 1000 Abenteuer) is a 1960 comedic western directed by Henry Hathaway and starring John Wayne and Stewart Granger. The film script is based on the play Birthday Gift by Ladislas Fodor. The film featured Johnny Horton's hit song of the same name. Though Horton had sung several popular movie tie-in songs, this was the first one that actually appeared in the film being sung over the opening titles. Lyrics: Way up north, (North To Alaska.) Way up north, (North To Alaska.) North to Alaska, They're goin' North, the rush is on. North to Alaska, They're goin' North, the rush is on. Big Sam left Seattle in the year of '92, With George Pratt, his partner, and brother, Billy, too. They crossed the Yukon River and found the bonanza gold. Below that old white mountain just a little south-east of Nome. Sam crossed the majestic mountains to the valleys far below. He talked to his team of huskies as he mushed on through the snow. With the northern lights a-running wild in the land of the midnight sun, Yes, Sam McCord was a mighty man in the year of nineteen-one. Where the river is winding, Big nuggets they're finding. North to Alaska, They're goin' North, the rush is on. Way up north, (North To Alaska.) Way up north, (North To Alaska.) North to Alaska, They're goin' North, the rush is on. North to Alaska, They're goin' North, the rush is on. George turned to Sam with his gold in his hand, Said: "Sam you're a-lookin'at a lonely, lonely man. "I'd trade all the gold that's buried in this land, "For one small band of gold to place on sweet little Ginnie's hand. "'Cos a man needs a woman to love him all the time. "Remember, Sam, a true love is so hard to find. "I'd build for my Ginnie, a honeymoon home. "Below that old white mountain just a little south-east of Nome." Where the river is winding, Big nuggets they're finding. North to Alaska, They're goin' North, the rush is on. North to Alaska, They're goin' North, the rush is on. Way up north, (North To Alaska.) Way up north, (North To Alaska.) Way up north, (North To Alaska.)

Quote from Geronimo: "I was warmed by the sun, rocked by the winds and sheltered by the trees as other Indian babes. I was living peaceably when people began to speak bad of me. Now I can eat well, sleep well and be glad. I can go everywhere with a good feeling". Geronimo (June 16, 1829 -- February 17, 1909) was a prominent Native American leader and medicine man of the Chiricahua Apache who fought against Mexico and the United States and their expansion into Apache tribal lands for several decades during the Apache Wars. Lorne Greene (February 12, 1915 -- September 11, 1987), was the stage name of Lyon Himan Green, OC, a Canadian actor. His television roles include Ben Cartwright on the western Bonanza, and Commander Adama in the science fiction TV Series Battlestar Galactica. He also worked on the Canadian television nature documentary series Lorne Greene's New Wilderness, and in television commercials as a dog food spokesman. "Saying that there's nothing quite like hearing Lorne Greene sing is something of an understatement: the man who starred as a patriarch in Battlestar Galactica, Code Red, and, most memorably, Bonanza, has a preposterously booming, uncomfortable-sounding baritone that makes him sound as though he's never quite sure of what's going on around him".

Rio Bravo is a 1959 American Western film, directed by Howard Hawks. The script was written by Jules Furthman and Leigh Brackett, based on a short story by B.H. McCampbell. It stars John Wayne, Dean Martin, and Ricky Nelson, with Angie Dickinson, Pedro Gonzalez Gonzalez, Ward Bond, and Walter Brennan. El Degüello means "no mercy" or "to put to the sword". The literal translation is "a throat slitting". Originally a bugle call, it was used by Howard Hawks in the 1959 flick, "Rio Bravo". The musical score was composed by Dimitri Tiomkin. His score contains the haunting tune "El Degüello," which is played several times to build tension. A character (Colorado, played by Nelson) identifies the tune as "The Cutthroat Song". He relates the song's historical playing on the orders of Antonio López de Santa Anna to the Texans holed up in the Alamo to signify that no quarter would be given. The tune was used in the following year, over the opening credits of Wayne's film, The Alamo. Composer Ennio Morricone recalled director Sergio Leone requesting him to write "Dimitri Tiomkin music" for A Fistful of Dollars. The trumpet theme is similar to Tiomkin's "Deguella" while the Italian title of Rio Bravo was Un Dollaro D'onore.

He ain't heavy, he's my brother, was composed by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell, who was to die shortly after the song's release in 1970 from cancerThe song, recorded by Manchester based super group, the Hollies with Elton John guesting on the piano, enjoyed tremendous commercial success reaching top spot in the UK and seventh place in the US charts. Alan Clarke who was the Hollies lead vocalist during their peak will never be forgotten and will be remembered for the strength of his vocals on ``He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother''. The song has been credited with covering several themes from human's rights issues to the camaraderie of soldiers fighting together in war. Or simply describing the trials and tribulations of life. Whatever the theme, ``He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother'' describes a stronger person, either emotionally or physically who uncomplainingly provides support for someone, may be a brother or maybe just a friend or even an acquaintance who is finding it more difficult to make the same journey. The singer's only complaint is that not everyone is prepared to make the same compromises. The Hollies are an English rock group, formed in Manchester in the early 1960s, though most of the band members are from through out East Lancashire. Known for their distinctive vocal harmony style, they became one of the leading British groups of the era. They enjoyed considerable popularity in many countries, although they did not achieve major US chart success until 1966. Along with The Rolling Stones and The Searchers, they are one of the few British pop groups of the early 1960s that have never officially broken up and that continue to record and perform. The Hollies were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. Lyrics: The road is long With many a winding turn That leads us to who knows where Who knows when But I'm strong Strong enough to carry him He ain't heavy, he's my brother So on we go His welfare is of my concern No burden is he to bear We'll get there For I know He would not encumber me He ain't heavy, he's my brother If I'm laden at all I'm laden with sadness That everyone's heart Isn't filled with the gladness Of love for one another It's a long, long road From which there is no return While we're on the way to there Why not share And the load Doesn't weigh me down at all He ain't heavy, he's my brother He's my brother He ain't heavy, he's my brother...

Lyrics: Oh yeah yeah yeah Now if there's a smile on my face It's only there trying to fool the public But when it comes down to fooling you Now honey that's quite a different subject But don't let my glad expression Give you the wrong impression Really I'm sad, oh I'm sadder than sad You're gone and I'm hurtin' so bad Like a clown I pretend to be glad Now there's some sad things known to man But ain't too much sadder than The tears of a clown, when there's no one around Uh hmm, oh yeah baby Now if I appear to be carefree It's only to camouflage my sadness And honey to shield my pride I try To cover this hurt with a show of gladness But don't let my show convince you That I've been happy since you Decided to go, oh I need you so I'm hurt and I want you to know But for others I put on a show, uuhayeah Now there's some sad things known to man But ain't too much sadder than The tears of a clown, when there's no one around Oh yeah Just like Pagliacci did I try to keep my surface hid Smiling in the public eye But in my lonely room I cry The tears of a clown When there's no one around, oh yeah, baby Now if there's a smile on my face Don't let my glad expression Give you the wrong impression Don't let this smile I wear Make you think that I don't care When really I'm sad...I'm hurting so bad....

Leonard Norman Cohen, (born September 21, 1934) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, poet and novelist. Cohen published his first book of poetry in Montreal in 1956 and his first novel in 1963. His work often deals with the exploration of religion, isolation, sexuality and complex interpersonal relationships. Famously reclusive, spending years in a Zen Buddhist monastery, and possessing a persona frequently associated with mystique, he is extremely well-regarded by critics for his literary accomplishments and for producing an output of work of high artistic quality over a five-decade career. Lyrics: When they poured across the border I was cautioned to surrender, this I could not do; I took my gun and vanished. I have changed my name so often, I've lost my wife and children but I have many friends, and some of them are with me. An old woman gave us shelter, kept us hidden in the garret, then the soldiers came; she died without a whisper. There were three of us this morning I'm the only one this evening but I must go on; the frontiers are my prison. Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing, through the graves the wind is blowing, freedom soon will come; then we'll come from the shadows. Les Allemands e'taient chez moi, (The Germans were at my home) ils me dirent, "Signe toi," (They said, "Sign yourself,") mais je n'ai pas peur; (But I am not afraid) j'ai repris mon arme. (I have retaken my weapon.) J'ai change' cent fois de nom, (I have changed names a hundred times) j'ai perdu femme et enfants (I have lost wife and children) mais j'ai tant d'amis; (But I have so many friends) j'ai la France entie`re. (I have all of France) Un vieil homme dans un grenier (An old man, in an attic) pour la nuit nous a cache', (Hid us for the night) les Allemands l'ont pris; (The Germans captured him) il est mort sans surprise. (He died without surprise.) Oh, the wind, the wind is blowing, through the graves the wind is blowing, freedom soon will come; then we'll come from the shadows.

Johannes Brahms (pronounced [joːˈhanəs ˈbʁaːms]) (7 May 1833 -- 3 April 1897), was a German composer and pianist, one of the leading musicians of the Romantic period. Born in Hamburg, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna, Austria, where he was a leader of the musical scene. In his lifetime, Brahms's popularity and influence were considerable; following a comment by the nineteenth-century conductor Hans von Bülow, he is sometimes grouped with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven as one of the Three Bs. Brahms composed for piano, chamber ensembles, symphony orchestra, and for voice and chorus. A virtuoso pianist, he gave the first performance of many of his own works; he also worked with the leading performers of his time, including the pianist Clara Schumann and the violinist Joseph Joachim. Many of his works have become staples of the modern concert repertoire. Brahms, an uncompromising perfectionist, destroyed many of his works and left some of them unpublished. Brahms was at once a traditionalist and an innovator. His music is firmly rooted in the structures and compositional techniques of the Baroque and Classical masters. He was a master of counterpoint, the complex and highly disciplined method of composition for which Bach is famous, and also of development, a compositional ethos pioneered by Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Beethoven. Brahms aimed to honour the "purity" of these venerable "German" structures and advance them into a Romantic idiom, in the process creating bold new approaches to harmony and melody. While many contemporaries found his music too academic, his contribution and craftsmanship have been admired by subsequent figures as diverse as the progressive Arnold Schoenberg and the conservative Edward Elgar. The diligent, highly constructed nature of Brahms's works was a starting point and an inspiration for a generation of composers.

Peggy Lee (May 26, 1920 January 21, 2002) was an American jazz and popular music singer, songwriter, composer and actress in a career spanning nearly seven decades. From her beginnings as a vocalist on local radio, to singing with Benny Goodman's big band, she was forging her own sophisticated persona, Lee evolved into a multi-faceted artist and performer. She wrote music for films, acted, and created conceptual record albums -- encompassing poetry, jazz, chamber pop, art songs, and other genres. Johnny Guitar (1954) is a Republic Pictures western film starring Joan Crawford, Sterling Hayden, Mercedes McCambridge, and Scott Brady. "Johnny Guitar" is actually based on a novel by Roy Chanslor and is undisputedly the granddaddy of the Female Western Film, because it proudly serves as the original prototype of this genre. It's also a little known-fact that there really was a real Johnny "Guitar!" Johnny "Guitar" Watson was a well-known musician, who adopted his moniker after he saw Sterling Hayden play the title-role. Although, that's really where the similarities end. The great score by Victor Young is probably the most romantic and sentimental music ever composed for the screen, with the Johnny Guitar theme, with the voice of Peggy Lee, bringing us the fascination of the legend they called Johnny Guitar.

RIP Mitch Miller! He died 99 years old! "My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean" is a traditional Scottish folk song which remains popular in Western culture. "Bonnie" is a Scots term for attractive. It's a girl's name in English, but in Scots it can refer to either an attractive boy or girl (ie bonnie lad, or bonnie lass). It probably comes from "baine" which is Gaelic for "milk." It'd refer to fair skin. Mitch Miller (born Mitchell William Miller, July 4, 1911 - July 31, 2010)was an American musician, singer, conductor, record producer, A&R man and record company executive. He was one of the most influential figures in American popular music during the 1950s and early 1960s, both as the head of Artists & Repertoire at Columbia Records and as a best-selling recording artist. Some regard Miller as the creator of what would become karaoke with his NBC-TV series, Sing Along with Mitch. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester in the early 1930s, Miller began his musical career as an accomplished player of the oboe and English horn, and has recorded several highly regarded classical albums featuring his instrumental work over the years. But he is best known as a conductor, choral director, television performer and recording executive.

Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 August 16, 1977) was an American singer and actor. A cultural icon, he is commonly known simply as Elvis and is also sometimes referred to as The King of Rock 'n' Roll or The King. Presley began his career in 1954 as one of the first performers of rockabilly, an uptempo fusion of country and rhythm and blues with a strong back beat. His novel versions of existing songs, mixing "black" and "white" sounds, made him popular—and controversial, as did his uninhibited performances. Presley had a versatile voice and he had unusually wide success encompassing many genres, including rock and roll, gospel, blues, country, ballads and pop. To date, he has been inducted into four music halls of fame. Health problems, prescription drug dependence, and other factors led to his death at the age of 42. Lyrics: As the snow flies On a cold and gray Chicago mornin' A poor little baby child is born In the ghetto And his mama cries 'cause if there's one thing she don't need it's another hungry mouth to feed In the ghetto People, don't you understand the child needs a helping hand or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day Take a look at you and me, are we too blind to see, do we simply turn our heads and look the other way Well the world turns and a hungry little boy with a runny nose plays in the street as the cold wind blows In the ghetto And his hunger burns so he starts to roam the streets at night and he learns how to steal and he learns how to fight In the ghetto Then one night in desperation the young man breaks away He buys a gun, steals a car, tries to run, but he don't get far And his mama cries As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man face down on the street with a gun in his hand In the ghetto As her young man dies, on a cold and gray Chicago mornin', another little baby child is born In the ghetto

She is most famous worldwide for her hit "To Sir, with Love" and in the UK for "Shout". Lyrics: Those schoolgirl days, Of telling tales and biting nails are gone, But in my mind, I know they will still live on and on, But how do you thank someone, Who has taken you from crayons to perfume? It isn't easy, but I'll try, If you wanted the sky I would write across the sky in letters, That would sour a thousand feet high, To Sir, with Love The time has come, For closing books and long last looks must end, And as I leave, I know that I am leaving my best friend, A friend who taught me right from wrong, And weak from strong, That's a lot to learn, What, what can I give you in return? If you wanted the moon I would try to make a start, But I, would rather you let me give my heart, To Sir, with Love To Sir, with Love is a 1967 British drama film starring Sidney Poitier that deals with social and racial issues in an inner city school.

"Needles and Pins" (written by Jack Nitzsche and Sonny Bono, first recorded by Jackie DeShannon in 1963) The Searchers are an English rock band who emerged as part of the 1960s Merseybeat scene along with The Beatles, The Swinging Blue Jeans, and Gerry & The Pacemakers. Originally founded as a skiffle group in Liverpool in 1959 by John McNally and Mike Pender, the band took their name from the classic 1956 John Wayne western The Searchers The Searchers heard British performer Cliff Bennett perform "Needles and Pins" at a club in Hamburg, Germany, and instantly wanted it to be their next single. Soon after, in 1964, "Needles and Pins" appeared on the Searchers' next album, It's Fab! It's Gear! It's The Searchers. It peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in America and was number one in the United Kingdom. Audible during the Searchers' recording of "Needles and Pins" is a faulty bass drum pedal, which squeaks throughout the song. It is particularly noticeable during the opening of the number. They were the second group from Liverpool, after the Beatles, to have a hit in the United States when "Needles and Pins" charted during the first week of March 1964. •Tony Jackson: Lead Vocals, Bass •John McNally: Rhythm Guitar, Vocals •Mike Pender: Lead Guitar, Vocals •Chris Curtis: Drums Lyrics: I saw her today, I saw her face It was the face I loved and I knew I had to run away and get down on my knees and pray That they'd go away But still they begin Needles and pins Because of all my pride The tears I gotta hide Hey, I thought I was smart, I wanted her Didn't think I'd do, but now I see She's worse to him than me Let her go ahead, take his love instead And one day she will see Just how to say please And get down on her knees Yeah, that's how it begins She'll feel those needles and pins a-hurtin her, a-hurtin her Why can't I stop and tell myself I'm wrong, I'm wrong, so wrong Why can't I stand up and tell myself I'm strong Because I saw her today, I saw her face It was the face I loved and I knew I had to run away and get down on my knees and pray That they'd go away But still they begin Needles and pins Because of all my pride The tears I gotta hide Ah, needles and pins Needles and pins Needles and pins

Barry McGuire (born 15 October 1935) is an American singer-songwriter best known for the hit song "Eve of Destruction", and later as a singer and songwriter of Contemporary Christian Music. "Eve of Destruction" is a protest song written by P. F. Sloan in 1965. Several artists have recorded it, but the best-known recording was by Barry McGuire. This recording was made between July 12 and July 15, 1965 and released by Dunhill Records. The accompanying musicians were top-tier LA session men: P.F. Sloan on guitar, Hal Blaine (of Phil Spector's "Wrecking Crew") on drums, and Larry Knechtel on bass. The vocal track was thrown on as a rough mix and was not intended to be the final version, but a copy of the recording "leaked" out to a DJ, who began playing it. The song was an instant hit and as a result the more polished vocal track that was at first envisioned was never recorded. The song is a grave warning of imminent apocalypse, and considered by some to be the epitome of a protest song. It expressed the frustrations and fears of young people in the age of the Cold War, Vietnam, the nuclear arms race, and the civil rights movement. Lyrics: The Eastern world it is exploding violence flaring bullets loading you're old enough to kill but not for voting you don't believe in war but what's that gun you're toting and even the Jordan river has bodies floating But you tell me over and over and over again my friend ah you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction Don't you understand what I'm trying to say and can't you feel the fears I'm feeling today if the button is pushed there's no running away there'll be no one to save will the world in a grave take a look around you boy it's bound to scare you boy And you tell me over and over and over again my friend ah you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction Yea my blood's so mad feels like coagulation I'm sitting here just contemplating I can't twist the truth it knows no regulation handful of senators don't pass legislation and marches alone can't bring integration when human respect is disintegration this whole crazy world is just too frustrating And you tell me over and over and over again my friend ah you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction Think of all the hate there is in Red China then take a look around to Selma Alabama ah you may leave here for four days in space but when you return it's the same old place the pounding of the drums the pride and disgrace you can burry your dead but don't leave a trace hate your next-door neighbour but don't forget to say grace And tell me over and over and over again and over again my friend you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction mmh no no you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction

Kelton Orbison (April 23, 1936 December 6, 1988) was an American singer-songwriter and musician, well known for his distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions, and dark emotional ballads. Bob Dylan marked Orbison as a specific influence, stating that there was nothing like him on radio in the early 1960s: With Roy, you didn't know if you were listening to mariachi or opera. He kept you on your toes. With him, it was all about fat and blood. He sounded like he was singing from an Olympian mountaintop. He was now singing his compositions in three or four octaves that made you want to drive your car over a cliff. He sang like a professional criminal... His voice could jar a corpse, always leave you muttering to yourself something like, 'Man, I don't believe it'. Lyrics: A candy-colored clown they call the sandman Tiptoes to my room every night Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper Go to sleep, everything is alright I close my eyes, then I drift away Into the magic night, I softly say A silent prayer, like dreamers do Then I fall asleep in dream, my dreams of you In dreams I walk with you In dreams I talk to you In dream you're mine, all of the time We're together in dreams, in dreams But just before the dawn I awake and find you gone I can't help it, I can't help it, if I cry I remember that you said goodbye It's too bad it only seems It only happens in my dreams Only in dreams In beautiful dreams.

It's a Beautiful Day was a band formed in San Francisco, California in 1967, the brainchild of violinist David LaFlamme. LaFlamme, a former soloist with the Utah Symphony Orchestra, had previously been in the band Orkustra, and unusually, played a five-string violin. The other members were his wife Linda (keyboards), Pattie Santos (vocals), Hal Wagenet (guitar), Mitchell Holman (bass) and Val Fuentes (drums). Although they were one of the earliest and most important San Francisco bands to emerge from the Summer of Love, It's a Beautiful Day never quite achieved the success of their contemporaries such as The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and Santana, with whom they had connections. It's A Beautiful Day created a unique blend of rock, jazz, folk, classical and world beat styles during the seven years the band was officially together. The group's signature song "White Bird" was inspired by the experiences David and Linda LaFlamme had while living in Seattle. In an ironic twist on the band's name, the sad song was partly inspired by Seattle's rainy winter weather. In a later interview, David LaFlamme said: "Where the 'white bird' thing came from ... We were like caged birds in that attic. We had no money, no transportation, the weather was miserable. We were just barely getting by on a very small food allowance provided to us. It was quite an experience, but it was very creative in a way." Lyrics: White bird, in a golden cage, on a winter's day, in the rain. White bird, in a golden cage, alone. The leaves blow, Across the long black road. To the darkened skies, in its rage But the white bird just sits in her cage, unknown. White bird must fly Or she will die White bird, dreams of the aspen trees, with their dying leaves, turning gold. But the white bird just sits in her cage, growing old. White bird must fly or she will die. White bird must fly or she will die. The sunsets come, the sunsets go. The clouds roll by,and the earth turns old. And the young bird's eyes do always glow. She must fly, She must fly, She must fly. White bird, In a golden cage, On a winter's day, in the rain. White bird, In a golden cage alone. White bird must fly or she will die. White bird must fly or she will die. White bird must fly or she will die.

The Allman Brothers Band is an American band once based in Macon, Georgia. The band was formed in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman (slide guitar and lead guitar) and Gregg Allman (vocals, organ), who were supported by Dickey Betts (lead guitar, rhythm guitar, vocals), Berry Oakley (bass), Butch Trucks (drums), and Jai Johanny Johanson (drums). While the band have been called the "principal architects of Southern rock", they also incorporate elements of blues-rock and hard rock, and their live shows have jam band-style improvisation and instrumental songs. In 1971, George Kimball of Rolling Stone Magazine hailed them as "the best damn rock and roll band this country has produced in the past five years." The band has been awarded eleven Gold and five Platinum albums between 1971 and 2005. Rolling Stone ranked them 52nd on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time in 2004. The band continues to record and tour to the present day. "Jessica" is a rock instrumental written by Dickey Betts, guitarist of The Allman Brothers Band and Les Dudek who played with them soon after Duane Allman's death. Jessica was first released on the band's 1973 album Brothers and Sisters, and has subsequently been used in many musical contexts. In January 2006, a Wall Street Journal article referred to the piece as "a true national heirloom." It is widely known as the theme to the BBC Two motoring program Top Gear. The piece, along with "Ramblin' Man", is one of the two tracks from the album which marked the beginning of a new era for the Allman Brothers Band following the deaths of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. The song is named for Jessica Betts, the daughter of Dickey Betts and Sandy Bluesky. The piece begins with an opening motif on acoustic guitar (played by guest guitarist Les Dudek) that gradually builds into the signature main theme played by Dickey Betts on two electric guitars, Gregg Allman on Hammond Organ, and Chuck Leavell on Grand Piano. The theme follows in a somewhat "verse/chorus" style, but quickly changes directions after the second "verse", breaking back down into the opening motif. The reprise of the opening motif builds at a slower pace, introducing different percussion instruments (congas, tambourine, maracas) and the dueling Grand Piano and Bass Guitar melody-line one by one until the drumset enters to introduce the Grand piano solo section. Soon the piece changes key from A Major to D Major for Betts's guitar solo. An establishing melody line at the end of the solo and another set of key changes brings the piece back to the original main theme, breaking down this time at the "chorus" section to end the piece. The original version on Brothers and Sisters clocks in at 7:30, although there is a shortened single edit, which cuts out some of the main theme at the end of the piece, trimming it to 7:00 exactly. "Jessica" was the first Allman Brothers song recorded with new bassist Lamar Williams after the fatal motorcycle accident of Berry Oakley.

"Apache" was composed by guitarist Jerry Lordan who was inspired to write it by the 1954 film of the same name. The British instrumental group The Shadows were touring with Jerry when he played it for them, and ultimately they recorded this version which was a big hit in the U.K, during the summer months of 1960.

The Shadows were also successful in the British EP charts that were compiled by several different publications during the 1960s based on sales statistics from a limited number of retailers around the country. The Shadows and Cliff Richard & the Shadows each had four No.1 selling EPs.

Rupert Holmes (born February 24, 1947) is an American-British composer, singer-songwriter, musician and author of plays, novels and stories. He is best known for his number one pop hit "Escape" (subtitled "The Piña Colada Song") in 1979. Lyrics: I was tired of my lady, We'd been together too long, Like a worn out recording, Of a favorite song. So while she lay there sleepin', I read the paper in bed, And in the personal columns, There was this letter I read. If you like piña coladas, And getting caught in the rain, If you're not into yoga, If you have half a brain, If you like making love at midnight, In the dunes of the cape, Then I'm the love that you've looked for, Write to me and escape. I didn't think about my lady, I know that sounds kind of mean, But me and my old lady, Had fallen into the same old dull routine, So I wrote to the paper, Took out a personal ad, And though I'm nobody's poet, I thought it wasn't half bad. Yes I like piña coladas, And getting caught in the rain, I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne, I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon, And cut through all this red tape, At a bar called O'Malley's, Where we'll plan our escape. So I waited with high hopes, And she walked in the place, I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face, It was my own lovely lady, And she said, "Aw, it's you", Then we laughed for a moment, And I said, "I never knew". That you like piña coladas, And gettin' caught in the rain, And the feel of the ocean, And the taste of champagne, If you like making love at midnight, In the dunes on the cape, You're the lady I've looked for, Come with me and escape. If you like piña coladas, And getting caught in the rain, If you're not into yoga, If you have half a brain, If you like making love at midnight, In the dunes on the cape, Then I'm the love that you've looked for, Write to me and escape.

Roy Kelton Orbison (April 23, 1936 -- December 6, 1988) was an American singer-songwriter and musician, well known for his distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions, and dark emotional ballads. Orbison grew up in Texas and began singing in a rockabilly / country & western band in high school until he was signed by Sun Records in Memphis. His greatest success came with Monument Records in the early to mid 1960s when 22 of his songs placed on the US Billboard Top Forty, including "Only the Lonely", "Crying", "In Dreams", and "Oh, Pretty Woman". His career stagnated through the 1970s, but several covers of his songs and the use of one in a film by David Lynch revived his career in the 1980s. In 1988, he joined the supergroup The Traveling Wilburys with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Jeff Lynne and also released a new solo album. He died of a heart attack in December that year, at the zenith of his resurgence. He had experienced some major tragedies in his life, including the death of his first wife and two of his children in separate accidents. Orbison was a natural baritone, yet could sing high tenor notes with ease; commentators have suggested that he had a three- or four-octave range.The combination of Orbison's powerful, impassioned voice and complex musical arrangements led many commentators to refer to his music as operatic; he even earned the sobriquet "the Caruso of Rock". Performers as disparate as Elvis Presley and Bono stated his voice was, respectively, the greatest and most distinctive they had ever heard. While most men in rock and roll in the 1950s and 1960s portrayed a defiant masculinity, many of Orbison's songs instead conveyed a quiet, desperate vulnerability. He was known for performing while standing still and solitary, wearing black clothes and dark sunglasses which lent an air of mystery to his persona. Lyrics: Tonight down here in the valley I'm lonesome and oh, how I feel As I sit here alone in my cabin I can see your mansion on the hill Do you remember when we parted? The story to me, you revealed You said, you could live without love, dear In your loveless mansion on the hill I've waited all through the years, love To give you a heart, true and real 'Cos I know you are living in sorrow In your loveless mansion on the hill The light shines bright from your window The trees stand so silent and still I know you're alone with your pride, dear In your loveless mansion on the hill

The Verve (originally Verve) were an English rock band formed in 1990 in Wigan by lead vocalist Richard Ashcroft, guitarist Nick McCabe, bassist Simon Jones, and drummer Peter Salisbury. The members had met at Winstanley Sixth Form College. Simon Tong later became a member. Beginning with a psychedelic sound indebted to shoegazing and space rock, by the mid-1990s the band had released several EPs and two albums. They also endured name and line-up changes, breakups, health problems, drug abuse and various lawsuits. Filter referred to them as "one of the tightest knit, yet ultimately volatile bands in history". Their commercial breakthrough was the 1997 album Urban Hymns and their single "Bitter Sweet Symphony", which became a worldwide hit. Soon after this commercial peak, the band broke up in April 1999, citing internal conflicts. The band's original line-up reunited in June 2007, embarking on a tour later that year and releasing the album Forth in August 2008. A year later it was announced that, for the third time, the band had split. "Bitter Sweet Symphony" is a song by English alternative rock band The Verve. It is the lead track on their third album Urban Hymns (1997). It was released on 16 June 1997 as the first single from the album, reaching number two on the UK Singles Chart. The single was released in the United States in early 1998, where it reached number twelve on the Billboard Hot 100. The song also became famous for the legal controversy surrounding plagiarism charges. Rolling Stone ranked "Bitter Sweet Symphony" as the 382nd best song of all time. In May 2007, NME magazine placed "Bitter Sweet Symphony" at number 18 in its list of the "50 Greatest Indie Anthems Ever". In September 2007, Q published a list of "Top 10 Tracks" as selected via a poll of 50 songwriters; "Bitter Sweet Symphony" is included. In the Triple J Hottest 100 of All Time, 2009 (an online music poll conducted by the Australian radio station Triple J) the track was voted the 14th best song of all time. Although the song's lyrics were written by Verve vocalist Richard Ashcroft, it has been credited to Keith Richards and Mick Jagger after charges by the original copyright owners that the song was plagiarized from the Andrew Oldham Orchestra recording of The Rolling Stones' 1965 song "The Last Time". The image is a painting by Gustav Klimt Lyrics: 'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life Try to make ends meet You're a slave to money then you die I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet yeah, No change, I can change I can change, I can change But I'm here in my mold I am here in my mold But I'm a million different people from one day to the next I can't change my mold No, no, no, no, no Well I never pray But tonight I'm on my knees yeah I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now But the airways are clean and there's nobody singing to me now No change, I can change I can change, I can change But I'm here in my mold I am here in my mold And I'm a million different people from one day to the next I can't change my mold No, no, no, no, no I can't change I can't change 'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life Try to make ends meet Try to find some money then you die I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down You know the one that takes you to the places where all the things meet yeah You know I can change, I can change I can change, I can change But I'm here in my mold I am here in my mold And I'm a million different people from one day to the next I can't change my mold No, no, no, no, no I can't change my mold no, no, no, no, no, I can't change Can't change my body, no, no, no I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down Been down Ever been down Ever been down Ever been down Ever been down Have you ever been down?

Era is a New Age music project by French composer Eric Lévi. The band has sold more than 12 million albums. Era mixes Gregorian chants and occasionally world music with contemporary electronic arrangements. It is reminiscent of New Age music projects such as Enigma, Gregorian and Deep Forest . Era lyrics are written in Pseudo-Latin, as well as in english. Some of them are based on beliefs of the XIII century French christian sect, the Cathars. Musicians are Lee Sklar, Chester Thompson, Philippe Manca, Neal Wilkinson, Patrice Tison and Eric Levi. Era's live shows and music videos often feature artists dressed in medieval or traditional clothes and armour. Most usually, actors Pierre Bouisierie and Irene Bustamante perform at Era shows. As a rule, I try to avoid copying musical styles which are imposed by epochs and cultures; I am always on the lookout for strong emotions; the sort that accompany an epic film. In fact, I am writing music for a film which has not yet been made! says Eric Levi. Era ist ein Musikprojekt des französischen Musikers Eric Levi, eines ehemaligen Mitgliedes der Glam-Rock-Gruppe Shakin' Street. Die Texte enthalten außer englischen Versen oft Passagen in einer erfundenen Sprache, die dem Lateinischen ähnelt oder sind ausschließlich in dieser erfundenen Sprache abgefasst. Ihre Musik hat Züge aus den Bereichen der klassischen Musik, der Oper sowie des Gregorianischen Chorals. Ihre Musik wurde im Soundtrack des französischen Films Die Besucher und im Film Driven verwendet. Das Lied "Ameno" wird in Australien in den "The Power of Yes" - Reklameanzeigen der Firma Optus Telecommunication genutzt.

Aside from the modest chart hit "Cherrystone" (1959), these were not successes, and further releases from Imperial Records and Warner Bros. Records fared no better, so the pair began working more as songwriters. Their biggest success as a songwriting duo was with "Never My Love", a hit for The Association. In the 1970s they also charted several more hit singles of their own. They composed the theme music for the television program, Nanny and the Professor.

Burke was "the founding father of what was defined as soul music in America in the 1960s", and "a major architect of 1960s soul, infusing post-World War II R&B with [his] gospel roots". and "a key transitional figure bridging R&B and soul", Burke's "sound was a bold merger of orchestrated sophistication and countryish, down-home grit, and his best singles built a Gothic sense of drama and heartbreak. Lyrics: When your baby leaves you all alone And nobody calls you on the phone Ah, don't you feel like crying? Don't you feel like crying? Well here I am my honey Oh, come on you cry to me. When you're all alone in your lonely room And there's nothing but the smell of her perfume Ah don't you feel like crying Don't you feel like crying? Ah don't you feel like crying? Come on, come on cry to me. Well nothing could be sadder Than a glass of wine, all alone Loneliness, loneliness, it's such a waste of time Oh-oh yeah You don't ever have to walk alone, oh you see Oh come on, take my hand and baby Won't you walk with me?

Louis Daniel Armstrong (August 4, 1901 July 6, 1971 nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana. Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an "inventive" cornet and trumpet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence on jazz, shifting the music's focus from collective improvisation to solo performers. With his distinctive gravelly voice, Armstrong was also an influential singer, demonstrating great dexterity as an improviser, bending the lyrics and melody of a song for expressive purposes. He was also greatly skilled at scat singing, or vocalizing using syllables instead of actual lyrics. Renowned for his charismatic stage presence and deep, instantly recognizable voice almost as much as for his trumpet-playing, Armstrong's influence extends well beyond jazz music, and by the end of his career in the 1960s, he was widely regarded as a profound influence on popular music in general. "When the Saints Go Marching In", often referred to as "The Saints", is an American gospel hymn that has taken on certain aspects of folk music. Though it originated as a spiritual, today people are more likely to hear it played by a jazz band. Louis Armstrong was one of the first to make the tune into a nationally known pop-tune in the 1930s. Armstrong wrote that his sister told him she thought the secular performance style of the traditional church tune was inappropriate and irreligious. However, Armstrong was in a New Orleans tradition of turning church numbers into brass band and dance numbers that went back at least to Buddy Bolden's band at the very start of the 20th century. Lyrics: Oh when the Saints go marching in Now, when the Saints go marching in Yes I want to be in that number When the Saints go marching in Oh when the Saints go marching in When the Saints go marching in Yes I want to be in that number When the Saints go marching in
