An old song but performed by the British Dragoons in IRAQ.
I've loved that version ever since they first released it...I've always loved the song, but the Dragoons,..of which my nephew was a member at the time ..make it Hilarious!!
John's original title was "Babe, I hate to go".....until his manager suggested he change it.
Águas de Março ("The Waters of March")
"A Brazilian song composed by Antônio Carlos Jobim in 1972. The lyrics, originally written in Portuguese, do not tell a story, but rather present a series of images that form a collage. The inspiration for "Águas de Março" came from Rio de Janeiro's rainiest month, March, with heavy rain that causes flooding in many places around the city. The lyrics and the music have a constant downward progression much like the water torrents flowing in the gutters of Rio de Janeiro in March, typically carrying sticks, stones, bits of glass, and almost everything and anything. Jobim also wrote this version of the lyrics in English."

This is the only version from the Great composer Carlos Antonio Jobim, Waters of March from the same Album! (In English)
Wow! It's like two different songs. This version sounds dark. I used to have a friend from Brazil who loved Jobin. She told me one characteristic of most of his songs is they gave you both a sad, and a happy, feeling at the same time. There is probably a word for that. Maybe only in Portuguese.
Those two young girls were so cute, they made that song fun, even if you didn't understand the words. I just ran across it by accident. Apparently that band is made up of all young people, at times some as young as 10 years old, and their performances almost always feature at least one professional artist.
"Feliz e triste is a Portuguese word, meaning happy & sad, that has no direct translation to English, since it is so complex. …"
"saudade: Of Portuguese origin, in a whole bunch of clumsy English words, saudade means “the love that remains” after someone is gone. It’s the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, wellbeing, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. It describes a deep nostalgic longing."
"But it goes deeper – implicit in the emotion is the fact it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing will never return. It can be described as an emptiness, like someone (your children, parents, sibling, grandparents, friends, pets) or something (places, things you used to do in childhood) that should be there in a particular moment is missing, and the individual feels this absence. It can also describe a love for something that you know will never exist."
Doing a list of Neil Young songs, some from the beginning and some from later
From his start with Buffalo Springfield in 1966 with Stephen Stills,
knew he was going to be a major influence on our music.
Then his first solo album and he marked my senior year in high school.
He joins Crosby,Stills,Nash and Young and continues to amaze.
His later work, including 'Rust Never Sleeps'.
One of my favorites that proves he can still write a good song:
He turns 72 this month, and I read he recently married Daryl Hannah,
so things are going good for him.
A large body of work and stands the test of time.

Michael Buble's recent new release...I love this, and given his announcement this month that he's finished with showbiz, it may be the last one..
This new one from the young singer songwriter Tom O'dell.... I'm loving it...
I saw Michael Bublé on a talk show several years ago, and he was asked if that was his real name. It was, and he said that kids used to call him "Mickey Bubble" sometimes.
Ive never heard that song but I like it!
