A good song for a September over the hump today.


The Bluebird of Happiness

Listen the song below, that a friend of mine sent to me today. The lyrics are really beautiful. You’ll love it!

The beggar man and the mighty king
Are only different in name
For they are treated just the same by fate
Today a smile and tomorrow a tear
We’re never sure what’s in store
So learn your lesson before it is too late

So be like I, hold your head up high
Till you find a bluebird of happiness
You will find greater peace of mind
Knowing there’s a bluebird of happiness

And when he sings to you, though you’re deep in blue
You will see a ray of light creep through
And so remember this, life is no abyss
Somewhere there’s a bluebird of happiness

The poet with his pen
The peasant with his plow
It makes no difference who you are
It’s all the same somehow
The king upon his throne
The jester at his feet
The artist, the actress
The man on the street
It’s a life of smiles
And a life of tears
It’s a life of hopes
And a life of fears
A blinding torrent of rain
And a brilliant burst of sun
A biting, tearing pain
And bubbling, sparkling fun
And no matter what you have
Don’t envy those you meet
It’s all the same
It’s in the game
The bitter and the sweet
And if things don’t look so cheerful
Just show a little fight
For every bit of darkness
There is a little bit of light
For every bit of hatred
There’s a little bit of love
For every cloudy morning
There’s a midnight moon above)

So don’t you forget
You must search till you find the bluebird
You will find peace and contentment forever
If you will be like I, hold your head up high
Till you see a ray of light and cheer
And so remember this, life is no abyss
Somewhere there’s a bluebird of happiness.

Lost song of Freddie Mercury

Well, this a surprise. And yes, Freddie was right – time waits for no one.

For the first time ever, after four decades buried deep in the vaults, a previously unreleased version of ‘Time’, recorded in 1986 by Freddie Mercury for the concept album of the hit musical of the same name, has finally emerged after two years of work by the globally successful musician, songwriter and producer Dave Clark, a long-time friend of Freddie’s, using the song’s full title, ‘Time Waits For No One’.
