    From the 1975 album Face The Music. “Down Home Town” starts with the chorus of Waterfall played backwards. ELO had a good time making fun of the religious right claiming hidden Satanic messages in Rock songs.

    Electric Light Orchestra - Down Home Town

    Originally written and performed by Pete Seeger.

    "If I Had A Hammer"
    (originally by Pete Seeger)

    If I had a hammer
    I'd hammer in the morning
    I'd hammer in the evening
    All over this land

    And I'd hammer out danger
    I'd hammer out a warning
    I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters
    All over this land

    If I had a bell
    I'd ring it in the morning
    I'd ring it in the evening
    All over this land

    I'd ring out danger
    I'd ring out a warning
    I'd ring out love between my brothers and my sisters
    All over this land, ooh

    If I had a song
    I'd sing it in the morning
    I'd sing it in the evening
    All over this land

    I'd sing out danger
    I'd sing out a warning
    I'd sing out love between my brothers and my sisters
    All over this land, ooh

    Well I got a hammer
    And I got a bell
    And I got a song to sing
    All over this land

    It's the hammer of Justice
    It's the bell of Freedom
    It's the song about Love between my brothers and my sisters
    All over this land

    It's the hammer of Justice
    It's the bell of Freedom
    It's the song about Love between my brothers and my sisters
    All over this land

    Thanks Tsaphah for sharing the original version. The French one is slightly different as you will notice.
    Back in the 60's and 70's, many famous singers didn't bother being original and creative and would just make slightly different covers of famous songs from the USA.

    When, petite soeœur, When, little sister
    We'll just have to remember.
    I'll be down,
    No more, the old dancing music sound.
    All day long in my gown,
    When I will be down.

    Quand j'serai K.O., When I'm K.O.
    Descendu des plateaux d'phono, Down from the phono's decks
    Poussé en bas Pushed down
    Par des plus beaux, des plus forts que moi, By nicer and stronger guys than me
    Est-ce que tu m'aimeras encore Will you still love me
    Dans cette petite mort ? In this small death ?

    Attention : plus personne Caution : Nobody anymore
    Porteurs de glace, de chewing gum, Ice-cream and chewing gum sellers
    Plus d'belle allure, No looking elegant anymore (play on words with "No good speed anymore")
    Chevaux glissant sur la Côte d'Azur. Horses sliding across the Riviera
    Quand j'serai pomme, When I'm all at sea
    Dans les souv'nirs, les albums, In the memories, the albums
    Est-ce que tu laisseras Will you let
    Ta main, sur ma joue, posée comme ça ? Your hand, on my cheek, laid like this ?
    Est-ce que tu m'aimeras encore Will you still love me
    Dans cette petite mort ? In this small death ?

    When, petite soeœur, When, little sister
    We'll just have to remember.
    I'll be down,
    No more, the old dancing music sound.
    All day long in my gown,
    When I will be down.

    Plus d'atoll No more atolls
    Pour une déprime qu'a du bol*, For a depression "that has got a bowl"
    Plus les folles No more crazy girls
    Griffonnant "Je t'aime" sur des bristols. Scribbling "I love you" on bristol papers
    Quand j'serai rien When I'm nothing
    Qu'un chanteur de salle de bals, More than a local ball singer
    Sans clap clap Without clap clap
    Sans guitare, sans les batteries qui tapent, Without a guitar, without banging drums
    Est-ce que tu m'aimeras encore Will you still love me
    Dans cette petite mort ? In this small death ?

    Quand j'serai K.O., When I'm K.O.
    Descendu des plateaux d'phono, Down from the phono's decks
    Poussé en bas Pushed down
    Par des plus beaux, des plus forts que moi, By nicer and stronger guys than me

    I'll be down,
    No more, the old dancing music sound.
    All day long in my gown,
    When I will be down.

    * I don't know what he means here. At times, Souchon's lyrics are a bit abstruse.

    C'est déjà ça - Alain Souchon

    Je sais bien que, rue d'Belleville, I know very well that, in Belleville street
    Rien n'est fait pour moi, I'm nowhere near where I belong
    Mais je suis dans une belle ville : But I'm in a nice town
    C'est déjà ça. At least, it's already something

    Si loin de mes antilopes, So far away from my antelopes
    Je marche tout bas. I walk silently
    Marcher dans une ville d'Europe, To walk in a town in Europe
    C'est déjà ça. At least, it's already something

    Oh, oh, oh, et je rêve Oh, oh, oh and I dream
    Que l'Soudan, mon pays, soudain, se soulève...That Sudan, my country, suddenly rises
    Oh, oh, Oh, oh,
    Rêver, c'est déjà ça, c'est déjà ça. To dream, at least it's already something, already something.

    Y'a un sac de plastique vert There's a green plastic bag
    Au bout de mon bras. At the end of my arm
    Dans mon sac vert, il y a de l'air : In my green bag, there's air.
    C'est déjà ça. At least, it's already something

    Quand je danse en marchant By the way I walk, I look like dancing
    Dans ces djellabas, In those djellabas
    Ça fait sourire les passants : It makes the passersby smile
    C'est déjà ça. At least, it's already something

    Oh, oh, oh, et je rêve Oh, oh, oh and I dream
    Que l'Soudan, mon pays, soudain, se soulève...That Sudan, my country, suddenly rises
    Oh, oh, Oh, oh,
    Rêver, c'est déjà ça, c'est déjà ça. To dream, at least it's already something, already something.

    C'est déjà ça, déjà ça. It's already something, already something.

    Déjà... Already

    Pour vouloir la belle musique,For wanting nice music
    Soudan, mon Soudan, Sudan, my Sudan
    Pour un air démocratique, For a democratic tune,
    On s'casse les dents. We beat each other up

    Pour vouloir le monde parler, For wanting the people to speak up
    Soudan, mon Soudan, Sudan, my Sudan
    Celui d'la parole échangée, A world granted with exchanged speech
    On t'casse les dents. You get beaten up

    Oh, oh, oh, et je rêve Oh, oh, oh and I dream
    Que l'Soudan, mon pays, soudain, se soulève...That Sudan, my country, suddenly rises
    Oh, oh, Oh, oh,
    Rêver, c'est déjà ça, c'est déjà ça. To dream, at least it's already something, already something.

    Je suis assis rue d'Belleville I'm seated in Belleville street
    Au milieu d'une foule, In the middle of a crowd
    Et là, le temps, hémophile, And there, time, hemophiliac
    Coule. Runs

    Oh, oh, oh, et je rêve Oh, oh, oh and I dream
    Que l'Soudan, mon pays, soudain, se soulève...That Sudan, my country, suddenly rises
    Oh, oh, Oh, oh,
    Rêver, c'est déjà ça, c'est déjà ça. To dream, at least it's already something, already something.

    Oh, oh, oh, et je rêve Oh, oh, oh and I dream
    Que soudain, mon pays, l'Soudan, se soulève... That suddenly, my country, Sudan rises
    Oh, oh, Oh, oh,
    Rêver, c'est déjà ça, c'est déjà ça. To dream, at least it's already something, already something.

    L'amour à la machine - Alain Souchon

    Passez notre amour à la machine Put our love to the washer
    Faites le bouillir Make it boil
    Pour voir si les couleurs d'origine To see if the original colors
    Peuvent revenir Can come back
    Est-ce qu'on peut ravoir à l'eau de Javel ? Can we get back with bleach ?
    Des sentiments Of the feelings
    La blancheur qu'on croyait éternelle The whiteness which we thought eternal
    Avant Before

    Pour retrouver le rose initial To get back the initial rose
    De ta joue, devenue pâle Of your cheek, now become pale
    Le bleu de nos baisers du début The blue of our kisses at the start
    Tant d'azur, perdu So much azure wasted

    Passez notre amour à la machine Put our love to the washer
    Faites le bouillir Make it boil
    Pour voir si les couleurs d'origine To see if the original colors
    Peuvent revenir Can come back
    Est-ce qu'on peut ravoir à l'eau de Javel ? Can we get back with bleach ?
    Des sentiments Of the feelings
    La blancheur qu'on croyait éternelle The whiteness which we thought eternal
    Avant Before

    Matisse, l'amour, c'est bleu, difficile Matisse; love, it's blue, difficult
    Les caresses, rouges, fragiles The caresses; red, fragile
    Le soleil de la vie les tabasse The sun of life beats them up
    Et alors, elles passent And then, they fade away

    Allez! À la machine!! Come on ! To the washer !

    Le rouge pour faire tomber la misère The color red to remove the misery
    De nos gentils petits grands-pères From our kind and little granddads
    Noires, les mains dans les boucles blondes Black, the hands in the kids' blond curls
    Tout autour du monde All around the world

    Passez notre amour à la machine Put our love to the washer
    Faites le bouillir Make it boil
    Pour voir si les couleurs d'origine To see if the original colors
    Peuvent revenir Can come back
    Est-ce qu'on peut ravoir à l'eau de Javel ? Can we get back with bleach ?
    Des sentiments Of the feelings
    La blancheur qu'on croyait éternelle The whiteness which we thought eternal
    Avant Before

    Allez! À la machine!! Come on ! To the washer !

    Is it not "a depression that has chance"?When avoir du bol means to be lucky? (Although I don't know how a depression can have chance)

    Masters of War by Bob Dylan, covered by RPWL in the style of Pink Floyd.


    One of the better covers of this classic song written by Bob Dylan.

    It will be 3 years ago on Sept. 10-11, 2014, that this subject came up. ( "New Light" discretely slipped in at the 2014 regional convention: Paradise in heaven ) started by Eden on June 21, 2014.

    “So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, Until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies. Is it not written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.” ( Joshua 10:13 NASB )

    Today, I had a discussion with a friend who is a theoretical physicist. I mentioned that some people said this account was not true because people would fly off the earth because there would be no gravity to hold them. My answer to them is that the rotation of the earth is not what causes gravity. It is the mass that causes gravity. In my post #35, I give the mass of the earth. So, . . the earth stood still, just as stated in the Bible account.

    Rush-Time Stand Still (Lyrics)

    Here’s one I thought of while reading the comments about what we know/don't know.
    (How To Handle A JW Who Says The Evil Slave Class Does Not Exist)

    There are still many mysteries in the Bible that we don’t know and can’t comprehend, yet.

    This song can be equated with the lake of fire mentioned at Rev 19:20, 20:10, 20:14, 20:15

    From the album: Final Cut (1983)

    Pink Floyd - The Hero's Return


    Jesus Jesus what's it all about
    trying to clout these little ingrates into shape
    when I was their age all the lights went out
    there was no time to whine and mope about
    and even now part of me flies over
    dresden at angels one five
    though they'll never fathom it behind my
    sarcasm desperate memories lie
    sweetheart sweetheart are you fast asleep, good
    'cos that's the only time that I can really talk to you
    and there is something that I've locked away
    a memory that is too painful
    to withstand the light of day
    when we came back from the war the banners and
    flags hung on everyones door
    we danced and we sang in the street and
    the church bells rang
    but burning in my heart
    my memory smolders on
    of the gunners dying words on the intercom

    Jesus Christ I might as well be dead
    If I can't see how dangerous it must feel to be
    Training human cogs for the machine
    Without some shell-shocked lunatic like me

    Bombarding their still soft shores
    With sticks and stones that were lying around
    In the pile of unspeakable feelings I'd found

    And I turned back the stone
    Turned over the stone
    Of my own disappointment
    Back home

    "There's the wolf!" says Peter. And in fact, there is no wolf. When the wolf actually comes, nobody believe.
    "Jesus is present since 1914". And Jesus is not present. When he is actually present, will he really find faith on the earth?

    Here's one for all those unbelievers. :) :eek:



    Hooters - All You Zombies


    “All You Zombies (Original Version)”

    Holy Moses met the Pharaoh
    Yeah, he tried to set him straight
    Looked him in the eye, let my people go

    Holy Moses on a mountain
    High above the golden calf
    Went to get the Ten Commandments
    He’s just gonna break them in half

    All you zombies hide your faces
    All you people in the street
    All you sittin’ in high places
    The pieces gonna fall on you

    No one ever spoke to Noah
    They all laughed at him instead
    Working on his ark, working all by himself
    Only Noah saw it coming
    Forty days and forty nights
    Took his sons and daughters with him
    Yeah, they were the Israelites

    All you zombies hide your faces
    All you people in the street
    All you sittin’ in high places
    The rain’s gonna fall on you

    Holy Father, what’s the matter
    Where have all your children gone
    Sitting in the dark, living all by themselves

    All you zombies show your faces
    All you people in the street
    All you sittin’ in high places
    The pieces gonna fall on you

    All you zombies show your faces
    All you people in the street
    All you sittin’ in high places
    It’s all gonna fall on you

    I know you’re out there
    Let’s see you
