Posted 3/27/09 , edited 5/18/09

Here we can post our favorite songs which changed our life or the life from a million people.




IT would be also Great if ALL which entry something here can put also a URL from the song.
So we can have a look at it too - listen to it and enjoy more ^___^


Thanx to all which like my topic here!!!!!!!!

Here is my present fav. Song - He gives my the idea to this page:

Wolfsheim - The Sparrows And The Nightingales

How long have you been free
In this world of hate and greed
Is it black or is it white
Let's find another compromise
And our future's standing still
We're dancing in the spotlight
Where is the leader who leads me
I'm still waiting
Leaving home

And God is on your side
Dividing sparrows from the nightingales
Watching all the time
Ddividing water from the burning fire inside

Leave a light on in the night for me that I can find you
Rremember when we both where young and
Reckless and so curious
Now you're hiding from your child
A new day's dawning
Remember that you felt alive sometimes

And god is on your side
Dividing cruelty from tenderness
Watching all the time
Dividing fiction from reality

Move in circles walk the lines
No human being inside
Calm the winds and calm the seas
Try another kind of peace
Who fights this holy civil war
A million men in uniform
Wo ist der Führer der mich führt
Ich warte immer noch

Leaving home and god is on your side
Dividing presence from the history
Watching all the time
Dividing deaf men from the listening ones

Leave a light on in the night for me that I can find you
Remember when we both where young and
Reckless and so curious
Now you're hiding from your child
A new day's dawning
Remember that you felt alive sometimes

And god is on your side
Dividing cruelty from tenderness
Watching all the time
Dividing fiction from reality

Move in circles walk the lines
No human being inside
Calm the winds and calm the seas
Try another kind of peace
Who fights this holy civil war
A million men in uniform
Wo ist der Führer der mich führt
Ich warte immer noch
Leaving home

Leaving home and god is on your side
Dividing presence from the history
Watching all the time
Dividing deaf men from the listening ones

Leave a light on in the night for me that I can find you
Remember when we both where young and
Reckless and so curious
Now you're hiding from your child
A new day's dawning
Remember that you felt alive sometimes

So god is on your side
Dividing soldiers from the fishermen
Watching all the time
Dividing warships from the ferryboats

Eric Clampton
- Change the World -


If I could reach the stars
Pull one down for you
Shine it on my heart
So you could see the truth

That this love I have inside
Is everything it seems
But for now I find
It's only in my dreams

If I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You would think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world

If I could be king
Even for a day
I'd take you as my queen
I'd have no other way
And our love will rule
In this kingdom we have made
'Til then I'll be a fool
Wishing for the day

If I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You would think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world

If I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You would think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world

I think everyone have seen the Movie Pearl Harbor

These is just the Song to the Movie from Faith Hill


^ - There you'll be - ^

When I think back on these times
and the dreams we left behind
I'll be glad
'coz I was blessed
to get to have you in my life
when I look back on these days
I'll look and see your face
you were right there for me

In my dreams I'll always see you soar above the sky
in my heart there'll always be a place for you, for all my life
I'll keep a part of you with me
and everywhere I am there you'll be
Everywhere I am there you'll be

Well you showed me how it feels
to feel the sky within my reach
and I always will remember
all the strength you gave to me
your love made me make it through
Oh, I owe so much to you
you were right there for me

In my dreams I'll always see you soar above the sky
in my heart there'll always be a place for you, for all my life
I'll keep a part of you with me
and everywhere I am there you'll be

'Coz i always saw in you my light, my strength
and i want to thank you now for all the ways
you were right there for me
you were right there for me always

In my dreams I'll always see you soar above the sky
in my heart there'll always be a place for you, for all my life
I'll keep a part of you with me
and everywhere I am there you'll be
and everywhere I am there you'll be

The Scorpions: Wind Of Change (Russian / English Version)
these song was listening of Millions at Germany 1989 - becouse the wall was fallen

I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change
An August summer night
Soldiers passing by
Listening to the wind of change

Mir smykaetsya
Dumali li Vy
My stanem blizkimi
Kak brat'ya
Vozduh napolnen buduschim
I chuvstvuetsya vezde
Veter,
Veter Peremen

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
In the wind of change

Idu po ulitze,
Davnie vospominaniya
Zakovanny v proshlom
Po naberezhnoy Moskvy
Idu k Parku Gor'kogo
Slushayu ya
Veter Peremen

Verni menya, verni v moment toy nochi slavnoy
Kogda deti gryaduschego mechtayut
Veter Peremen

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
In the wind of change

The wind of change
Blows straight into the face of time
Like a stormwind that will ring the freedom bell
For peace of mind
Let your balalaika sing
What my guitar wants to say

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
With you and me
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
In the wind of change

And who knows not? Enya was singing with her beautyful voice the Song about the World Trade Center

- Only time -

“...a plane crashed into one of the World Trade Center towers...“
“…when the plane began to fly toward the World Trade Center…”
“…it does look like nuclear winter in lower Manhattan…”
“…there will be a high loss of life…”

who can say where the road goes
where the day flows
only time

“…we’re still picking up the pieces and trying to figure out exactly what happened…”
“…a catastrophe of unparallel proportion…”

and who can say if your love grows
does your heart show
only time

“…US officials are saying there was no warning … a terrorist attack…”
“…two hijacked airlines…”
“…I was happening to look at the first tower and actually saw people waving where the first plane crashed through and then there were unbelievable scenes, … when a second jet came crashing into the second tower, … what’s going on?”

who can say why your heart sighs
as your love flies
only time

and who can say why your heart cries
when your love dies
only time

“…as soon as it got hit, I was thrown through a window, so I was very lucky to get out, … there was a lot of people that didn’t get out, … there was a lot of people coming down the stairs, burned up, … it’s … it’s bad…”
“…we need a lot of heroic deeds this day, deeds we didn’t know, police, firemen, ordinary citizens who perform these heroic deeds…”

who can say where the roads lead
what there might be in your heart
and who can say when the day sleeps
if the night keeps all your heart

“…today we’ve had a national tragedy and an apparent terrorist attack on our country…”
“…why are they pulling us out of here? … North Tower was hit…”
“…there was an explosion of some kind…”
“…oh my God, there it comes…”
“…we’re trying to get back, … we’re running … we’re running…”

who can say if your love grows
does your heart show
only time

and who can say where the road goes
where the day flows
only time
who knows
only time
who knows
only time

“…the resolve of our great nation is being tested, but make no mistake, we will show the world that we will pass this test…”

This is one of the songs that really inspired me to promote change.

"What's Going On?" by the All Star Tribute


[P Diddy:]
What's Going On

[Jermaine Dupri:]
Tell Me

[P Diddy:]
People Dying
People Crying
Lord help us

[Bono:]
Mother, mother
There's too many of you crying

[Gwen Stefani:]
Oh, brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dying

[Jermaine Dupri:]
That's Right

[Aaron Lewis:]
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today

[Nona Gaye:]
Oh my father, father
We don't need to escalate

[Backstreet Boys:]
You see war is not the answer

[Nona Gaye/Backstreet Boys:]
For only love can conquer hate

[Christina Aguilera:]
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today

[Britney Spears:]
Barricades, can't block our way

[J-Lo:]
Don't punish me with brutality

[Destiny's Child:]
Talk to me
So you can see

[Destiny's Child/Britney Spears:]
[First Chorus]
Oh what's going on
What's going on
Yeah what's going on
Ahh what's going on

[Ja Rule:]
What's going on in a world filled with pain
Where's the love for which we pray
What's going on
When our children can't play
Homeless can't eat
There's got to be a better way
What's going on
When we politically blind
Can't see the signs of endangered times
What's going on

[Nelly Furtado:]
Ah tell me
What's going on in the world today
I'd rather be dead
Than turn my head away
We gotta first world vision to complete, to lift our
Hands in the air and cry for a switch

[Michael Stipe:]
Father, father

[P Diddy:]
Father help us, come on

[Michael Stipe:]
Everybody thinks we're wrong

[Alicia Keys:]
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Together we can all be strong

[P Diddy:]
United we stand, Divided we fall

[N'Sync:]
Oh you know we've got to find a way

[Mary J. Blige:]
To bring some understanding here today

[N'Sync:]
Barricades can't block our way

[Darren Hayes (Savage Garden):]
Don't punish me with brutality

[N'Sync:]
Baby talk to me
So you can see
[Second chorus]
Yeah, what's going on
Hey, what's going on
Somebody tell me what's going on
I'll tell you what's goin' on-uh

[Nelly:]
What's going on 'cross seas
Every minute a child dies by this disease
In record numbers indeed
Got momma's crying out please
My baby hold on
My child ain't done nothing wrong
Still I want to holler
Ask them why they don't bother
Oh no, oh no
Make me turn to my father
And ask him why they all got a trapped soul

[Nas:]
I can feel what was bothering Marvin
Why his words forever remain
Dealing with these modern day problems
'Cause of ignorance surrounding me and my constituents
Too many infected
Too many lives diminishing
Nobody say Protestants, Jews, Blacks, and Whites, Latinos and Asians
Pray together
Less fight
We better unite
As genocide chemical war
And the rich and the poor
Know that God delivers a cure

[Eve:]
It's a shame our reality is devastating
People praying for a cure
Dying while they're waiting
Ask the Lord for the comfort and strength to face it
All the kids with dreams
Won't get the chance to chase it
Makes me sad
Think about the lives they would've had
Think about the orphan babies got no moms and dads
How can we sit back and not try to make it right
We gotta come together
We gotta fight for life

[Fred Durst:]
Somebody tell me what's going on
(what's going on)
We got human beings using humans for a bomb
But everyone wanna live
Don't nobody really want to die
You feeling me right
I can't be watching people die
(die)
And watching people cry
Let me break it down for a minute
If there's enough room here for you and me
There's plenty of room for some humanity

Somebody tell me what's going on
(what's going on)

Heroes, by Superchick

No one sits with him, he doesn't fit in
But we feel like we do when we make fun of him
Cause you want to belong do you go along
Cause his pain is the price paid for you to belong
It's not like we hate him or want him to die
But maybe he goes home and thinks suicide
Or he comes back to school with a gun at his side
And kindness from you might have saved his life


Heroes are made when you make a choice


You could be a hero
Heroes do what's right
You could be a hero
You might save a life
You could be a hero, You could join the fight
For what's right for what's right for what's right


No one talks to her, she feels so alone
Shes in too much pain to survive on her own
The hurt she can't handle overflows to a knife
She writes on her arm, wants to give up her life
Each day she goes on is a day that she is brave,
Fighting the lie that giving up is the way,
Each moment of courage her own life she saves
When she throws the pills out a hero is made

Heroes are made when you make a choice

You could be a hero
Heroes do what's right
You could be a hero
You might save a life
You could be a hero, You could join the fight
For what's right for what's right for what's right


No one talks to him about how he lives
He thinks that the choices he makes are just his
Doesn't know he's a leader with the way he behaves
And others will follow the choices he's made
He lives on the edge, he's old enough to decide
His brother who wants to be him is just nine
He can do what he wants because it's his right
The choices he makes change a nine year old life

Heroes are made when you make a choice

You could be a hero
Heroes do what's right
You could be a hero
You might save a life
You could be a hero, You could join the fight
For what's right for what's right for what's right

Little Mikey D was in the one class
Who everyday got brutally harassed
This went on for years
Until he decided that never again
Would he shed another tear
So he walked through the door
Grabbed the 44 out of his father's dresser drawer
And said I can't take life no more
And like that life can be lost
But this ain't even about that
All of us just sat back
And watch it happen
Thinkin' it's not our responsibility
To solve a problem that isn't even about me
This is our problem
This is just one of the daily scenarios
Which we choose to close our eyes
Instead of doing the right thing
If we make a choice
And be the voice
For those who won't speak up for themselves
How may lives would be saved, changed, and rearranged
Now it's our time to pick a side
So don't keep walking by
Don't wanna intervene
Cause you just wanna exist and never be seen
So let's wake up
Change the world
Our time is now

My fav. song which makes my thinking about the world is:

Mad World - the Original from Gary Jules

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places – worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere – going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression – no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow – no tomorrow

And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it's a very very
mad world mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday – happy birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen – sit and listen
Went to school when I was very nervous
No one knew me – no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me – look right through me

And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it's a very very
Mad world . . . world
Enlarge your own world
Mad world

I was listening to this song today on radio and I think it´s a good one to put it up to these page.

Nightwish - Meadows of Heaven

Part I:

I close my eyes
The lantern dies
The scent of awakening
Wildhoney and dew

Childhood games
Woods and lakes
Streams of silver
Toys of olden days

- Meadows of heaven -

Part II:

The flowers of wonder
And the hidden treasures
In the meadow of life
My acre of heaven
A 5-year-old winterheart
In a place called home
Sailing the waves of past

- Meadows of heaven -

Part III:

Rocking chair without a dreamer
A wooden swing without laughter
Sandbox without toy soldiers
Yuletide without the Flight

- Dreambound for life -

last Part:

Flowers wither, treasures stay hidden
Until I see the 1st star of fall

I fall asleep
And see it all:

Mother’s care
And color of the kites

Meadows of heaven

One of the songs I like to play on Keyboard when I´m sad.
The song is about the life and how it is.

Reinhard Mey - Das Leben ist...( the life is....)

Mein Freund, du fragst vergebens:
My friend you asking in vain:
"Woher oder wohin?"
"Where from or where to?"
Der Zufall uns wie Schachfiguren schiebt
The chance is pushing us like chessmans
Die Hälfte unseres Lebens
The half of our life
Suchst du den Sinn darin
you´re searching for the sense in it
Um festzustellen
to find out
Dass das meiste keinen Sinn ergibt
The most have no sence

Das Leben ist großartig und irgendwann
The life is great and anywhen
Geschmacklos wie ein Dreigroschenroman
tastless like a 3 pennyroman
Je mehr du es kennst
so much as you know
Desto mehr siehst du ein:
the mostly you see:
Du kennst es nicht!
You don´t know it!
Ob richtig, ob falsch,
If right, if wrong,
Weißt du erst hinterher
You know it not till after
Zum Lachen, wenn es nicht zum Weinen wär'!
To laugh, if it´s not to cry!
Was wundert dich dann eine Träne
What does you wonder about a tear
In einem lachenden Gesicht?
at a laughing face?
Unendlich viele Wege
Endless many ways
Du kannst sie alle geh'n
You can go them all
Sie alle sind von Zufällen gesäumt
they are all from chance surraunded
Wähl' aus und überlege
select one and think about it
Um endlich einzuseh'n
to finally realize
Dass dich das Schicksal dahin
that the destiny leave you to the place
Wo es dich haben will, räumt
where you want you

Lass dir nur den Rat geben:
Let give you these advice:
Gib nur nichts auf den Rat
Don´t hear to the advice
Des Wetterhahns, der mit jedem Wind tanzt!
from the weathercock, which is dancing with every wind!
Ich glaub', es zählt im Leben
I think, its counting at life
Nur, daß du in der Tat
only, that you indeed
Wie es auch mit dir umspringt
how it is dealing with you
Vor dir selbst gradstehen kannst
standing straight in front of you´re own

I also like viva la vada, it explains why somebody will die if he trys to change the world through war
Posted 4/1/09 , edited 5/18/09
]

You mean Viva la Vada from Cold Play?! Hm...that was one member I would write in too ^-^

Thanx Zero

Here is the Skript to it ^^:

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemies eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing:
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
Once you know there was never,
never an honest word
That was when I ruled the world

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People could not believe what I'd become
Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can´t explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

Hear Jerusalem bells are ringings
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can´t explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvgZkm1xWPE
I LOVE THE SONG AND I PRETTY LOVE THE VIDEO TOO ^___^ soooo aww.
