Laura’s Weekly Song Challenge #37

Here’s my twelfth entry for Laura’s Weekly Song Challenge. Here’s a link to Laura’s blog https://lavent69.blog/2019/11/11/weekly-song-challenge-round-37/

This week Laura has given us these three topics to find songs for. We have to post a song that is about our country, post a song that has the color-red, white, or blue in either the title or the lyrics, and sandwiched in between is post a song that is patriotic.


Copy rules and add to your own post, pinging back to this post.
Post music videos for your answers to the musical questions.
Tag two people to participate!

1. Post a song that is about your country.

God Bless America” is an American patriotic song written by Irving Berlin during World War I in 1918 and revised by him in the run up to World War II in 1938. The later version has notably been recorded by Kate Smith, becoming her signature song. “God Bless America” takes the form of a prayer (intro lyrics “as we raise our voices, in a solemn prayer”) for God’s blessing and peace for the nation (“…stand beside her and guide her through the night…”). Following the September 11 terrorist attacks, Canadian pop star Celine Dion performed the song on the TV special America: A Tribute to Heroes. Shortly afterwards on October 16, Sony Music Entertainment released a benefit album called God Bless America, which featured Dion singing the song. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and became the first charity album to reach the top since USA for Africa’s “We Are the World” in 1985. Dion’s version also received enough radio airplay to reach No. 14 on Billboard’s Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart. The music video was made and aired in September 2001. Dion performed the song also a few times during 2002. In 2003, she performed it at Super Bowl XXXVII. She sang it on July 4, 2004 in her A New Day… show as well. “God Bless America” performed by Dion exists in two versions, live and studio. Both included on collections to gather funds for the victims of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and their families. The live version, on America: A Tribute to Heroes, is from the telethon event of the same name that took place on September 21, 2001. The studio version is on the God Bless America album, a patriotic songs CD. It was recorded on September 20, 2001, the day before the American telethon. It was meant to be a replacement for the performance in the event something happened and Dion could not appear.

Breathless is the 1998 Indi-pop album by Indian singer-composer Shankar Mahadevan featuring lyricist Javed Akhtar. It was the album that first made Mahadevan famous. The title track, “Breathless,” is a steady stream of a song that goes on not without a break, stanzas, verse or apparently even a pause for breath. The length of the part of the song which is ‘breathless’ is about three minutes. Mahadevan made the album in collaboration with Akhtar, a reputed lyricist in the Indian music industry. Renu Desai was a model and appeared in the music video of Shankar Mahadevan’s “Breathless”. The album won the award for Best Non-film Album at the 1998 Screen Awards. In 2018, Mahadevan recreated the song to highlight the programmes and initiatives of the Narendra Modi-led government.

2. Post a song that is patriotic.

Vande Mataram is a 1997 studio album by Indian musician A. R. Rahman. It is Sony Music India’s largest-selling non-film album to date. It released on December 9, 1997 by Sony’s music labels Columbia Records and SME Records. It was released on the Golden Jubilee anniversary of India’s independence and has been instrumental in instilling a sense of patriotic pride and national unity amongst the people of India. Ever since release, both the album and its title song “Maa Tujhe Salaam” have had a profoundly positive and unifying impact on the nationalistic and patriotic mood of the country. A critical and commercial hit, the title song from the album is one of India’s most popular songs of all time. Sung by Rahman himself, the song has come to represent a feeling of patriotic unity for India and has been performed or played at several national and regional events in the country. The popularity of the song was such that in 2002, when BBC World Service conducted an international poll to choose the ten most famous songs of all time from around 7000 songs selected from all over the world, “Maa Tujhe Salaam” was voted second. The track also holds two Guinness World Records for being the song performed in the most number of languages. Indian singer Sai “Psychuck” Manapragada performed the track in 265 different languages (individually) and again in 277 languages (with chorus) to achieve this feat twice. Rahman was also issued an Guinness World Record certificate for being the composer of the original song which was ceremoniously presented to Rahman after his concert in Oakland, CA, USA on September 12, 2010. The album won the 1997 Screen Videocon Award for Best Non-Film Album.

“America (My Country, ‘Tis of Thee)” is an American patriotic song, the lyrics of which were written by Samuel Francis Smith. The melody used is the same as that of the national anthem of the United Kingdom, “God Save the Queen”. The song served as one of the de facto national anthems of the United States (along with songs like “Hail, Columbia”) before the adoption of “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the official U.S. national anthem in 1931. Samuel Francis Smith wrote the lyrics to “America” in 1831 while a student at the Andover Theological Seminary in Andover, Massachusetts. Smith gave Mason the lyrics he had written, and the song was first performed in public on July 4, 1831, at a children’s Independence Day celebration at Park Street Church in Boston. The first publication of “America” was in 1832.

3. Post a song that has the color-red, white or blue in either the title or lyrics.

Govindudu Andarivadele (lit. The lord is a people’s man), also known by the acronym GAV, is a 2014 Indian Telugu-language action drama film written and directed by Krishna Vamsi. Produced by Bandla Ganesh for Parameswara Art Productions, the film features Ram Charan, Srikanth, Kajal Aggarwal and Kamalinee Mukherjee in the lead roles, while Prakash Raj, Jayasudha, Rahman and Adarsh Balakrishna play supporting roles. Yuvan Shankar Raja composed the film’s soundtrack and score while Sameer Reddy worked as the cinematographer.  Govindudu Andarivadele portrays a “non-residential Indian” named Abhiram who visits his grandfather Balaraju’s house as a student of agriculture. He actually came to reconcile the differences between his father, Chandrasekhar Rao, and Balaraju. The pair parted ways as Chadrasekhar went to the US while Balaraju stayed and built a charitable hospital for local people. Abhiram succeeds in winning over family members, and Balaraju understands the truth behind Abhiram and his attempts. The film was released worldwide on 1 October 2014 to generally positive feedback from critics. The film became one of the highest grossing Telugu films of 2014.

My English Could Song

“Could It Be You” by *NSYNC

Could it be you?
I’ve been searching so hard to find
Tell me how could I have been so blind
You were here all the time
(You were here all the time)
Could it be you?

[Verse 1]
You never looked as good to me
As you look tonight oh yeah
It’s like I’ve seen you for the first time
Through a lover’s eyes
How could it be I never knew
It’s always been you that I’ve been looking for
You were always right here by my side, oh yeah

Could it be you?
I’ve been searching so hard to find
Tell me how could I have been so blind
You were here all the time, oh yeah
Could it be you?
The girl I always have dreams about
The one I just can’t live without
Is it so? Tell me now (Please tell me)

[Verse 2]
Could you imagine what it’s like?
To always live without love
I need to have you in my life
I think I know that now
My open heart will make you a part
A part of this love I’ve been keeping
And I might just give it all to you, oh

Could it be you?
I’ve been searching so hard to find
Tell me how could I have been so blind
You were here all the time
Could it be you?
The girl I’ve always had dreams about
The one I just can’t live without
Is it so? Tell me now

Every girl I meet
Though they might be sweet
They can’t compare to you
So I search no more
Cause what I’ve been looking for
I know I’ve found in you

Could it be you?
I’ve been searching so hard to find
Tell me how could I have been so blind
You were here all the time
Could it be you?
The girl I’ve always had dreams about
The one I just can’t live without
Is it so? Tell me now
Could it be you?

This song is by *NSYNC and appears on the album No Strings Attached (2000). No Strings Attached is the third studio album by American boy band NSYNC, released on March 21, 2000, by Jive Records. Looking to distinguish their music from that of their labelmates, the band chose to incorporate pop and R&B styles. Prior to the release of the album, NSYNC separated from their management Trans Continental and their label RCA Records; its title is a play on the idea of independence from corporate control. Contributions to the album’s production came from a wide range of producers, including group members Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez and new collaborators Kristian Lundin, Jake Schulze, Rami, Teddy Riley, Kevin “She’kspere” Briggs, Richard Marx, Veit Renn, Babyface, and Guy Roche. The album debuted atop the U.S. Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 2.4 million copies, setting the record for one-week sales in the country; a record that lasted 15 years.

My Hindi Would Song

“Hamari Adhuri Kahani” from Hamari Adhuri Kahani

Paas aaye

Dooriyaan phir bhi kam naa hui

Ek adhuri si hamari kahani rahi

Aasmaan ko zameen, ye zaroori nahi

Jaa mile.. jaa mile..

Ishq saccha wahi

Jisko milti nahi manzilein.. manzilein..

We came close

Even though distance didn’t reduced

Our story is always like incomplete

Sky to Land, Not necessary

Met each other, met each other

Rang thee, noor tha

Jab kareeb tu tha

Ek jannat sa tha, yeh jahaan

Waqt ki ret pe kuch mere naam sa

Likh ke chhod gaya tu kahaan

Colours are there, brightness in life are there

When you are near me

Like a heaven, this world is

On Sand of time something like my name

After writing you left me alone and gone where

Hamari adhuri kahani..

Hamari adhuri kahani (x2)

Our incomplete story

Our incomplete story (x2)

Khushbuon se teri yunhi takra gaye

Chalte chalte dekho na hum kahaan aa gaye

Unkownly striked your fragnances

Walking with time, see where I reached

Jannatein agar yahin

Tu dikhe kyon nahin

Chaand suraj sabhi hai yahaan

Intezar tera sadiyon se kar raha

Pyaasi baithi hai kab se yahaan

If this is Heaven

Why you are not visible

Moon- Sun all are here

Waiting for you from centuries

Thirsty and siting here from long time

Humari adhoori kahaani

Humari adhoori kahaani (x2)

Our incomplete story

Our incomplete story (x2)

Pyaas ka ye safar khatam ho jayega

Kuch adhura sa jo tha poora ho jayega

The travelling of this thirsty path would end

Something incomplete should be complete

Jhuk gaya aasmaan

Mill gaye do jahaan

Har taraf hai milan ka samaa

Doliya hain saji, khushbuein har kahin

Padhne aaya Khuda khud yahaan..

Sky bow down to Land

Two World met

Happiness of meeting is everywhere

Bridal vehicle is decorated, Fragrances are everywhere

God himself came to read

Hamari adhuri kahani

Hamari adhuri kahani (x2)

Our incomplete story

Our incomplete story (x2)

Fandango’s Friday Flashback 11/08/2019

This is my eleventh entry for Fandango’s Friday Flashback. Here’s a link to Fandango’s blog https://fivedotoh.com/2019/11/08/fandangos-friday-flashback-november-8/

I’m going to write about two different blog posts.

Some Movies Released On November 8th, 2013

This was a post that I wrote on November 8th, 2013 about a couple of movies that were released on that day. I actually watched four of these movies. All of the other eight movies sounded interesting and I might check them out when I have some time off of work next week. One of these movies was a Telugu movie. I highly enjoyed watching both The Book Thief and Thor: The Dark WorldUnlike five weeks ago we did have Bollywood movies that were released on November 8th, 2013.

Volunteering and Religion

You would think that people wouldn’t discriminate against others when we live in a country that believes in freedom of religion. Well before last month, I would have agreed with you if I wasn’t told to leave the place where I had been volunteering for about three years. I had been volunteering at the Hoope Center for about three years for the last few months I started doing data entry volunteering. Everyone lived my hard work ethic and they loved that I would come two days a week to volunteer. Little did I know that my time was about to be up. One day one of ladies started talking to me about me converting and she also said some remarks that really hurt me: She said that stone gods are not real. Another day another lady said that Krishna wasn’t God and that really broke my heart. The next week two of the ladies asked to see me after my work was done and they said that because I wasn’t a Christian I couldn’t volunteer there anymore. They also told me some bs that they loved me. When I was applied to volunteer there I remember filling out Hindu on the religion part of the application so why did they let me volunteer for three years if they knew that I wasn’t a Christian?

Thursday Inspiration 29

This is my ninth entry for Paula’s Thursday Inspiration. This week’s theme is train. I hope everyone will enjoy this post of mine. Here’s a link to Paula’s blog https://lightmotifs.wordpress.com/2019/11/07/thursday-inspiration-29/

A train is a form of transport consisting of a series of connected vehicles that generally runs along a railroad track to transport cargo or passengers. The word “train” comes from the Old French trahiner, derived from the Latin trahere meaning “to pull” or “to draw”

To train is to teach, or develop in oneself or others, any skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies. Training has specific goals of improving one’s capability, capacity, productivity and performance. It forms the core of apprenticeships and provides the backbone of content at institutes of technology (also known as technical colleges or polytechnics). In addition to the basic training required for a trade, occupation or profession, observers of the labor-market recognize as of 2008 the need to continue training beyond initial qualifications: to maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout working life. People within many professions and occupations may refer to this sort of training as professional development.

Train Haikus
1.) I was sent to train

him, and so I will surely

complete my mission.

2.) Tom ran to catch the

Nurturing Thursday: Did You Know

I hope y’all enjoy my thirteenth entry for Becca’s Nurturing Thursday Challenge. This week’s theme is did you know. Here’s a link to Becca’s Blog https://beccagivens.wordpress.com/2019/11/07/nurt-thurs-did-you-know/

Nurturing Thursday was started by Becca Givens to “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy!” I thank her for starting a challenge that will help us get through the difficulties that we all face. I thank Becca for doing something to help everyone feel better especially since this world has been so cruel lately.
