Billie Holliday's 'Strange Fruit'


Shocked I've never heard that song. But just reading those words! They don't make me sad. They make me wanna toss my cookies. (No offense. Smile)

I saw theese two songs performed live by Clay Aiken, and watching the videos even makes me tear up.

You were there......performed by Clay Aiken 2004 Summer Tour, originaly by Avalon

I wonder how it must have felt
When David stood to face Goliath on a hill
I imagine that he shook with all his might
Until You took his hand, and held on tight

'Cause You were there, You were there
In the midst of danger's snare
You were there, You were there always
You were there when the hardest fight
Seemed so out of reach
Oh, You were there, You were always there
You were always there

So there he stood upon that hill
Abraham with knife in hand was poised to kill
But God in all his sovereignty had bigger plans
And just in time, You brought a lamb

'Cause You were there,
You were there
In the midst of the unclear
You were there, you were there always
You were there when obedience
Seemed to not make sense
You were there, You were always there
You were always there

So haven't I learned that my ways
Aren't as high as Yours are
And You alone keep the universe
From crumbling into dust
You are God and though we would
Not have understood You
There You were

Hanging blameless on a cross
You would rather die than leave us in the dark
Every moment, every planned coincidence
Just all makes sense
With Your last breath

You were there, You were there
During history's darkest hour
You were there, You were there always
You were the Victor and the King
You were the power in David's swing
You were the calm in Abraham
You are the God who understands
You are the strength when we have none
You are the living, Holy one
You were, You are and You will always be
the Risen Lamb of God

You were, You are and You will always be
The Risen Lamb of God
....................................................
Solitaire- The Way/Solitaire single by Clay Aiken
2004 Summer Tour

There was a man
A lonely man
Who lost his love
Through his indifference

A heart that cared
That went unshared
Until it died
In his silence

And solitaire's the only game in town
And every road that takes him takes him down
And by himself it's easy to pretend
He'll never love again
And keeping to himself he plays the game
Without her love it always ends the same
While life goes on around him everywhere
He's playing solitaire

Another day
A lonely day
So much to say
Goes unspoken

And through the night
His sleepless night
His eyes are closed
His heart is broken

And solitaire's the only game in town
And every road that takes him takes him down
And by himself it's easy to pretend
She's coming back again
And keeping to himself he plays the game
Without her love it always ends the same
While life goes on around him everywhere
He's playing solitaire

A little hope
Goes up in smoke
Just how it goes
Goes without saying

Solitaire

And by himself it's easy to pretend
He'll never love again
Oh, and keeping to himself he plays the game
Without her love it always end the same
While life goes on around him everywhere
He's playing solitaire
Solitaire
Solitaire

OH! - Sorry SeasAsleep & Poodlz
I was scanning so fast I didn't see SsA had already posted the lyrics of Strange Fruit.

When I read what I wrote, it sounded like I was being sarcastic - I was just pointing out what the song was about

Sorry

Chai Tea I didn't find anything sarcastic in your comments.

Panzade, thanks for the link. Your breakdown of 'Strange Fruit' was wonderful.

Another day is at end
Mama says she's tired again
No one can even begin to tell her
I hardly know what to say
But maybe it's better that way
If Papa were here I'm sure he'd tell her

Shannon is gone
I hope she's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island
With a shaded tree
Just like the one in our backyard

Mama tries hard to pretend
That things will get better again
Somehow she's keepin' it all inside her
But finally the tears fill our eyes
And I know that somewhere tonight
She knows how much we really miss her

Shannon is gone
I hope she's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island
With a shaded tree
Just like the one in our back yard ...
Just like the one in our back yard .........

This one always gets me.
I never saw the lyrics in writing before, they're a little different that what I thought I was hearing.

I thought it was about a dog that got lost swimming out to sea.
I always pictured an Irish Setter.

Now - reading this, I'm not sure.

So, what the HECK is this song about?

That reminds me-Rodney Crowell is a great American songwriter.
This one reminds me what a prick I was to a former love...and that I hope she finds better love.

When all our tears have reached the sea
Part of you will live in me
Way down deep inside my heart
The days keep coming without fail
A new wind is gonna find your sail
That's where your journey starts

You'll find better love
Strong as it ever was
Deep as the river runs
Warm as the morning sun
Please remember me

That's a great song Panzade, one of my favorite Tim McGraw releases. I didn't know that Rodney Crowell wrote it, although it doesn't surprise me, he's written so many great songs.

When Clay Aiken sang Mandy on his Juke Box Tour in Buffalo ....close up video GAH!

I remember all my life
Raining down as cold as ice,
Shadows of a man
A face through a window
Crying in the night
The night goes into

Morning, just another day
Happy people pass my way
Looking in their eyes
I see a memory
I never realized
How happy you made me, oh Mandy

Well you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
Well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

I'm standing on the edge of time
I've walked away when love was mine
Caught up in a world of uphill climbing
The tears are in my mind
And nothing is rhyming, oh Mandy

Well you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
Well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

Yesterday's a dream I face the morning
Crying on a breeze
The pain is calling, oh Mandy

Well you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
Well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

You came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
You kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you

"They Dance Alone" - Sting

Why are there women here dancing on their own?
Why is there this sadness in their eyes?
Why are the soldiers here
Their faces fixed like stone?
I can't see what it is that they dispise
They're dancing with the missing
They're dancing with the dead
They dance with the invisible ones
Their anguish is unsaid
They're dancing with their fathers
They're dancing with their sons
They're dancing with their husbands
They dance alone they dance alone

It's the only form of protest they're allowed
I've seen their silent faces scream so loud
If they were to speak these words they'd go missing too
Another woman on a torture table what else can they do
They're dancing with the missing
They're dancing with the dead
They dance with the invisible ones
Their anguish is unsaid
They're dancing with their fathers
They're dancing with their sons
They're dancing with their husbands
They dance alone they dance alone

One day we'll dance on their graves
One day we'll sing our freedom
One day we'll laugh in our joy
And we'll dance
One day we'll dance on their graves
One day we'll sing our freedom
One day we'll laugh in our joy
And we'll dance

Ellas danzan con los desaparecidos
Ellas danzan con los muertos
Ellas danzan con amores invisibles
Ellas danzan con silenciosa angustia
Danzan con sus pardres
Danzan con sus hijos
Danzan con sus esposos
Ellas danzan solas
Danzan solas

Hey mr. pinochet
You've sown a bitter crop
It's foreign money that supports you
One day the money's going to stop
No wages for your torturers
No budget for your guns
Can you think of your own mother
Dancin' with her invisible son
They're dancing with the missing
They're dancing with the dead
They dance with the invisible ones
They're anguish is unsaid
They're dancing with their fathers
They're dancing with their sons
They're dancing with their husbands
They dance alone they dance alone

But movies do it to me more regularly - I think I react more stongly to visuals...

Like for eg IRIS - which I saw over the weekend


Yeah, bollywood songs and movies do get you all weepy. This song was playing on the bus to school. It was so depressing but i felt so sad and wonderful (!). I forget what it was, i'll remember. Also, have you watched this movie "Rahul" about this kid and his family. Me and my friends watched it a looong time ago, and i could not stop. The tears just came, and do you know that music the movie has - i was even making the sounds of frantic crying at that. HEhehe...

Good ol' gospel music is sometimes heartwrenchingly sad. Mahalia Jackson's voice alone, no matter the song, can push many to their knees, blubbering.
"Goin' Up Yonder", for example.
