Friday Song Of The Day – Happy Christmas (War Is Over)

It has been since March that I posted a Friday Song Of The Day, so I figured I’d kick off this Christmas season with a Christmas tune. John Lennon’s Happy Xmas (War Is Over) seemed apropos to both the season of the year and our country.

Happy Christmas Kyoko
Happy Christmas Julian

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas (War is over)
For weak and for strong (If you want it)
For rich and the poor ones (War is over)
The road is so long (Now)
And so Happy Christmas (War is over)
For black and for white (If you want it)
For yellow and red ones (War is over)
Let’s stop all the fight (Now)

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

So this is Christmas (War is over)
And what have we done (If you want it)
Another year over (War is over)
And a new one just begun (Now)
And so Happy Christmas (War is over)
We hope you have fun (If you want it)
The near and the dear one (War is over)
The old and the young (Now)

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

War is over if you want it
War is over now

Friday Song(s) Of The Day – Naturally 7

This “a ccapella” group called Naturally Seven records music using no musical instruments except what the Lord gave them; their hands, mouths, feet, etc. All of the sounds (drums, synthesizers, etc) are all created by them vocally. Very impressive.

Here is Feel It (In The Air Tonight)

Here is Wall of Sound (Embedding has been disabled so you’ll have to make the trek to YouTube to see that one. It’s worth it!)

Friday Song Of The Day – Kyrie

Today’s Friday Song of the Day is a blast from the 80s that cause many any adolescent to stop and say, “what the heck is that guy saying?!” This is Kyrie by Mr. Mister from their album Welcome to the Real World.

Kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, kyrie

The wind blows hard
Against this mountainside
Across the sea into my soul
It reaches into where I cannot hide
Setting my feet upon the road

My heart is old
It holds my memories
My body burns a gemlike flame
Somewhere between
The soul and soft machine
Is where I find myself again

Kyrie eleison
Down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison
Through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison
Where I’m going, will you follow
Kyrie eleison
On a highway in the light

When I was young
I thought of growing old
Of what my life
Would mean to me

Would I have followed
Down my chosen road
Or only wished
What I could be

Kyrie eleison
Down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison
Through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison
Where I’m going, will you follow
Kyrie eleison
On a highway in the light

Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh

Kyrie eleison
Down the road that I must travel
Kyrie eleison
Through the darkness of the night
Kyrie eleison
Where I’m going, will you follow
Kyrie eleison
On a highway in the light

Friday Song Of The Day – 25 Miles

Today I bring you a 60s soul classic for the Friday Song Of The Day. This is Twenty Five Miles by Edwin Starr which can be found on 20th Century Masters: The Best of Edwin Starr (Millennium Collection).

Twenty-five miles from home, girl
My feet are hurtin’ mighty bad
Now I’ve been walkin’ for three days
And two lonely nights
You know that I’m mighty bad
But I got a girl waitin’ for me
That’s gonna make this trip worthwhile
You see, she’s got the kind
Of lovin’ and kissin’
Make a boy go stone wild

I got to keep on walkin’
Oh I got to walk on
Let me tell you, y’all
I’m so tired
But I just can’t lose my stride

I got fifteen miles to go now
And I can hear my baby callin’ my name
It’s as if, as though
I’m standin’ at her front door
And I can hear that doggone thing
Now I’ll be so glad to see my baby
And hold her in my arms one more time
And when I kiss her lips
I turn backward flip
And I forget about these feet of mine

I got to keep on walkin’

Oh I got to walk on
Let me tell you, y’all
I’m so tired
But I just can’t lose my stride

Yeah I got to walk on
Let me tell you, y’all
Hope my feet don’t fail me now
I got five more miles to go
I got nine, eight, seven
Six, oh six

I got five more miles to go now
Over the hills just around the bend
Although my feet are tired
I can’t lose my stride
I got to get my baby back again

I got to keep on walkin’
I got to walk on
Let me tell y’all
I’m so tired now
But I just can’t lose my stride
Oh, I got to walk on
Let me tell you now
I’m so tired
But I just can’t lose my stride
I got to walk on
