1996: Eurovision Songcontest: The Voice

The voice - Eimear Quinn 🎢

Back in the day, when the Eurovision Songcontest still had a lot to do with the actual singing-quality, this was a song that touched many people's hearts. The voice of an Angel. She had my vote. I even bought the CD-single afterwards.


Lyrics:

I hear the voice on the wind
And I hear you call out my name
Listen my child you say to me

I am the voice of your history
Be not afraid, come follow me
Answer my call and Ill set you free

I am the voice in the wind and the pouring rain
I am the voice of your hunger and pain
I am the voice that always is calling you
I am the voice and I will remain


I am the voice in the fields when the summers gone
The dance of the leaves when the autumn winds blow
Never did I sleep throughout all the cold winter long
I am the force that in springtime will grow


I am the voice of the past that will always be
Filled with my sorrows and blood in my fields
I am the voice of the future
Bring me your peace, bring me your peace
And my wounds they will heal

casting my eyes to ground
I find our morning shadows fading
dark clouds have gathered to shade our sun
we own our separate thoughts
both wrought with guilt

I love you
still
but my heart beats out of sync

let the rain pour down
I am now ready to drown

Pokon

De zon voelt heerlijk warm aan op mijn bleke huid. Goed ingesmeerd met factor 50 en met een grote witte zonnehoed half over mijn gezicht en rode krullen, lig ik bijna volledig ontspannen op het strand samen met mijn beste vriendin Kirsten.
    Deze week vakantie is precies wat ik nodig heb volgens haar. Na het stuklopen van mijn relatie, alweer twee jaar geleden, had ik me volledig om mijn werk gestort. Ik liep de laatste maanden op mijn tandvlees en stond op het punt in te storten. Zonder mijn medeweten had ze deze trip naar Biarritz geboekt en verlof voor mij geregeld op mijn werk. Toen ze me vier dagen geleden vertelde dat we op vakantie zouden gaan, schoot ik in de stress. Alle mitsen en maren die ik uitsprak werden direct van tafel geveegd. Kirsten was resoluut, ik moest naast ontstressen, nodig ontTessen.
    Niet lang geleden had Kirsten nog gegrapt dat ik eens een goede beurt moest krijgen om me weer helemaal op de rails te krijgen.    “Aan mijn lijf geen polonaise, de …

Sigh: The last goodbye

The last goodbye - Billy Boyd 🎢



This is the song that concludes the trilogy of The Hobbit, filmed by Peter Jackson. To me it is even more than that. It is the perfect goodbye to both The Lord of the Rings as well as The Hobbit. What a magnificent journey the actors, producers and all others on the set have taken in participating in filming the mighty fantasy world created by Tolkien. It truly must have been a bit sad having to say goodbye to their characters, the world they were creating and to each-other. This was an epic undertaking and one I can imagine they will never forget.


Lyrics:

I saw the light fade from the sky
On the wind I hear a sigh
As the snowflakes cover my fallen brothers
I will say this last goodbye

Night is now falling
So end this day
The road is now calling
And I must away
Over hill and under tree
Through lands where never light has shone
By silver streams that run down to the sea

Under cloud, beneath the stars
Over snow one winter's morn
I turn at last on paths that lea…
