Magic In Tunes: 05/04/2015 – Moon River

The May month moon is called as Full Flower Moon as the season is full of fertility, new growth bringing in Spring in abundance. At least in this part of the hemisphere this is spring. Not sure if there are any such kind of names in the opposite side of the world.

Here is a song from the 1961 American hit comedy film Breakfast At Tiffany’s that Audrey Hepburn sings so melodiously even though she is in grief. It’s a sad one, but it struck a chord in me when I first heard. Hence picked it for this month’s Full Moon Day. Music composed by Henry Mancini and Lyrics penned by Johnny Mercer.



Lyrics in English:

Moon River, Wider Than A Mile
I'm Crossing You In Style Some Day
Oh Dream Maker, You Heart Breaker
Wherever You're Going, I'm Going Your Way

Two Drifters Off To See The World
There's Such A Lot Of World To See
We're After The Same Rainbow's End
Waiting 'Round The Bend, My Huckleberry Friend
Moon River And Me
Me

Magic In Tunes: 05/05/2015 – Happy Cinco de Mayo

I always loved Ricky Martin songs. So what best to pick than one from his album for this Mexican festival. Vida from his 2014 album One Love, One Rhythm – The 2014 FIFA World Cup Official Album is an anthem that simply celebrates life and love. It was written by Ricky Martin, Salaam Remi, Afo Verde, Roxana Amed and Elijah King. Such a wonderful dance number that just takes away all those hidden tensions away. Happy Cinco de Mayo again everyone!!



Lyrics in English:

Finally the time has come
Let's just dance in the sun
Everybody grab someone
And let rhythym make us one

It's a celebration
Every time we get together
All people in every nation
Put your manos in the sky
Venimos a vacilar
Venimos a disfrutar
Vamos todos a gozar
Vamos todos a cantar

La vida buena
Buena vida
Everyone across the world
Man, and woman, boy and girl
La vida buena
Buena vida
Vamos todos a bailar
Sonreír y celebrar

Negativity is gone
And I'm feeling so good
'Cause we, 'cause we found love
Like life has just begun
Enjoy the laughter and fun

It's a celebration
Every time we get together
All people in every nation
Put your manos in the sky
Venimos a vacilar
Venimos a disfrutar
Vamos todos a gozar
Vamos todos a cantar

La vida buena
Buena vida
Everyone across the world
Man, and woman, boy and girl
La vida buena

Todo el mundo pa' abajo
Da una vueltecita
