Poster Minuet in A Minor

" Minuet in A Minor " is a keyboard work written by Johann Krieger. Johann Krieger (28 December 1651 – 18 July 1735) was a German composer and organist, younger brother of Johann Philipp Krieger. Born in Nuremberg, he worked at Bayreuth, Zeitz, and Greiz before settling in Zittau. He was one of the most important keyboard composers of his day, highly esteemed by, among others, George Frideric Handel. A prolific composer of church and secular music, he published several dozens of his works, and others survive in manuscript. However, hundreds more were lost when Zittau was destroyed by fire in 1757, during the Seven Years' War. Krieger's keyboard music places him among the most important German composers of his time.

Poster You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me

" You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me " is a 1930 popular song. The credits list music and lyrics as written by Sammy Fain, Irving Kahal, and Pierre Norman. Since Fain was primarily a music writer and Kahal a lyricist, it may be assumed that the music was by Fain and lyrics were by Kahal, with Norman's contribution uncertain. The song was introduced in the movie The Big Pond (1930) by Maurice Chevalier who also made a successful recording of it the same year. Other hit recordings in 1930 were by Paul Whiteman and his Orchestra (with a vocal by Bing Crosby), and the High Hatters. It is also featured in Frank Sinatra’s 1956 album Songs for Swingin’ Lovers!.

Lyrics


You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me

If the nightingales could sing like you
They'd sing much sweeter than they do
For you brought a new kind of love to me

And if the sandman brought me dreams of you
I'd want to sleep my whole life through
You brought a new love to me

I know that I'm the slave, you're the queen
Still you can understand that underneath it all
You're a maid and I am only a man

I would work and slave the whole day through
If I could hurry home to you
You brought a new kind of love to me

I'm hit that I'm the slave, you're the queen
Still you might understand that underneath it all
You're a maid and I am only a man

I would work and slave my whole life through
If I could hurry home to you
You brought a new kind of love to me

Something
by George Harrison - The Beatles

Poster Something

" Something " is a song by the English rock band The Beatles from their 1969 album Abbey Road. It was written by George Harrison, the band's lead guitarist. Together with his second contribution to Abbey Road, "Here Comes the Sun", it is widely viewed by music historians as having marked Harrison's ascendancy as a composer to the level of the Beatles' principal songwriters, John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Two weeks after the album's release, the song was issued on a double A-side single, coupled with "Come Together", making it the first Harrison composition to become a Beatles A-side. The pairing was also the first time in the United Kingdom that the Beatles issued a single containing tracks already available on an album.

Something

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don't need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You're asking me will my love grow
I don't know, I don't know
You stick around, now it may show
I don't know, I don't know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

" Princess Mononoke " is a 1997 Japanese animated epic historical fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, animated by Studio Ghibli for Tokuma Shoten, Nippon Television Network and Dentsu, and distributed by Toho. Princess Mononoke is set in the late Muromachi period of Japan (approximately 1336 to 1573 CE), but it includes fantasy elements. The story follows a young Emishi prince named Ashitaka, and his involvement in a struggle between the gods of a forest and the humans who consume its resources. The term mononoke (物の怪), or もののけ, is not a name, but a Japanese word for supernatural, shape-shifting beings that possess people and cause suffering, disease, or death. The film was released in Japan on July 12, 1997, and in the United States on October 29, 1999. It was a critical and commercial blockbuster, becoming the highest-grossing film in Japan of 1997, and also held Japan's box office record for domestic films until 2001's Spirited Away, another Miyazaki film.

Hey! (English)

Hey!
It's wonderful to see you once again
To see your smile and hear you call my name
There is so much to say.

Hey!
It isn't accidental that we met
Your love is something that I can't forget
So I wander your way.

Hey!
If one of us won't try to dry the tears
Tomorrow is the world of yesteryears
Let us live for today.

Hey!
Although we played a game of love and lost
I wouldn't change a single dream because
If you loose you must pay.

It's true
I've have so many others loves to share
But I will close my eyes and you'll be there
No matter where I go, you're ev'rywhere Er, Er...

If you
Come back to me and see how much I care
I only want to live if you are there
To give your love to me.

Hey!
Don't let me spend another day alone
Remember all the happiness we've known
Lets relive yesterday.

Hey!
We've known a world of loneliness and pain
We'll never make the same mistakes again
May if only you'll stay.

It's true
I've have so many others loves to share
But I will close my eyes and you'll be there
No matter where I go, you're everywhere Er, Er...

If you
Come back to me and see how much I care
I only want to live if you are there
To be with you I'd travel anywhere Er, Er

It's true...

Hey (Spanish)

¡Hey!
No vayas presumiendo por ahí
Diciendo que no puedo estar sin ti
¿Tú qué sabes de mí?
¡Hey!
Ya sé que a ti te gusta presumir
Decir a los amigos que sin ti
Ya no puedo vivir
¡Hey!
No creas, que te haces un favor
Cuando hablas a la gente de mi amor
Y te burlas de mí
¡Hey!
Que hay veces que es mejor querer así
Que ser querido y no poder sentir
Lo que siento por ti
¡Ya ves!
Tú nunca me has querido, ya lo ves
Que nunca he sido tuyo, ya lo sé
Fue solo por orgullo ese querer
¡Ya ves!
¿De qué te vale ahora presumir?
Ahora que no estoy ya junto a ti
¿Qué les dirás de mí?
¡Hey!
Recuerdo que ganabas siempre tú
Que hacías de ese triunfo una virtud
Yo era sombra y tú luz
¡Hey!
No sé si tú también recordarás
Que siempre que intentaba hacer la paz
Yo era un río en tu mar
¡Ya ves!
Tú nunca me has querido, ya lo ves
Que nunca he sido tuyo, ya lo sé
Fue solo por orgullo ese querer
¡Ya ves!
¿De qué te vale ahora presumir?
Ahora que no estoy ya junto a ti
¿Qué les dirás de mí?
¡Hey!
Ahora que ya todo terminó
Que como siempre soy el perdedor
Cuando pienses en mí
¡Hey!
No creas que te guardo algún rencor
Es siempre más feliz quien más amó
Y ese siempre fui yo
¡Ya ves!
Tú nunca me has querido, ya lo ves
Que nunca he sido tuyo, ya lo sé
Fue solo por orgullo ese querer
¡Ya ves!
Tú nunca me has querido, ya lo ves
Que nunca he sido tuyo, ya lo sé
Fue solo por orgullo ese querer

Que nunca he sido tuyo, ya lo sé

" Tear in My Heart " is a song written and recorded by American musical duo Twenty One Pilots, for their fourth studio album Blurryface. The song was released as a single on April 6, 2015 and was released to radio on April 14 of the same year. "Tear in My Heart" is an ode dedicated to a loved one, with Tyler Joseph's wife Jenna being the inspiration behind the song. As an unabashed love song, "Tear in My Heart" finds Joseph's in a romantic prose as he writes for his wife Jenna. In particular, its bridge was based on Joseph's personal experience driving long hours back to Columbus, Ohio from a family vacation trip as his future-wife Jenna slept, which left him to deal with all the traffic. "Tear in My Heart" is about how Joseph's wife shocked him out of stasis. By talking about falling in love, it acts as a break from morbidity of that prevailed much of Blurryface.

Tear in My Heart

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Sometimes you gotta bleed to know
That you're alive and have a soul
But it takes someone to come around
To show you how
She's the tear in my heart
I'm alive
She's the tear in my heart
I'm on fire
She's the tear in my heart
Take me higher
Than I've ever been

Songs on the radio are okay
My taste in music is your face
But it takes a song to come around
To show you how

She's the tear in my heart
I'm alive
She's the tear in my heart
I'm on fire
She's the tear in my heart
Take me higher
Than I've ever been
Than I've ever been
Than I've ever been
Than I've ever been
Oh, than I've ever been

You fell asleep in my car, I drove the whole time
But that's okay, I'll just avoid the holes so you sleep fine
I'm driving, here I sit, cursing my government
For not using my taxes to fill holes with more cement
You fell asleep in my car, I drove the whole time
But that's okay, I'll just avoid the holes so you sleep fine
I'm driving, here I sit, cursing my government
For not using my taxes to fill holes with more cement

Sometimes you gotta bleed to know, oh, oh
That you're alive and have a soul, oh, oh
But it takes someone to come around
To show you how

She's the tear in my heart
I'm alive
She's the tear in my heart
I'm on fire
She's the tear in my heart
Take me higher
Than I've ever been

My heart is my armor
She's the tear in my heart
She's a carver
She's a butcher with a smile
Cut me farther
Than I've ever been
Than I've ever been
Than I've ever been
Oh, than I've ever been

My heart is my armor
She's the tear in my heart
She's a carver
She's a butcher with a smile
Cut me farther
Than I've ever been
