CAFE PARADISO

When we are weary we must remember to relax and enjoy some of the good things in life like love and romance or stimulating venues with those special persons. Many Cafes play music and serve aperitifs. We shall devote this channel to those pursuits so that you can find diversions to the news of the world and celebrate the arts and scenes of far off places.



A taste of the temporal while pondering the eternal


On the town or...


On the terrace


Life is a spin.

  • Kate Bush - Experiment IV

    "Experiment IV" is a song by the English singer Kate Bush. It was released as a single on 27 October 1986, in order to promote Bush's greatest hits album The Whole Story. The single peaked at 23 in the UK Singles Chart, simultaneously with "Don't Give Up", Bush's duet with Peter Gabriel, which reached number 9.

    Overview

    The song tells a story about a secret military plan to create a sound that is horrific enough to kill people. The ending of the story is unclear, but in the music video nearly every person working on the project is killed by the horrific sound, which is personified by Bush herself as she changed from an angelic woman into a banshee (a horrifying screaming apparition of Irish lore).

    The song features Nigel Kennedy on violin, who at one point replicates the screeching violins from Bernard Herrmann's famous scoring of the shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film Psycho.

    The B-sides of both the 7" and 12" singles included a re-working of "Wuthering Heights", the single which catapulted her to stardom in 1978. On the 12" single, the 1980 song "December Will Be Magic Again" was included as an additional B-side.

    An extended version of "Experiment IV" appeared on the 12" vinyl release of the single. Both versions of the song were included on the second CD, second cassette or second LP of rarities on the box set This Woman's Work, released in 1990.


    We were working secretly for the military

    Our experiment in sound was nearly ready to begin

    We only know in theory what we are doing

    Music made for pleasure, music made to thrill

    It was music we were making here until

    They told us all they wanted

    Was a sound that could kill someone from a distance

    So we go ahead and the meters are over in the red

    It's a mistake in the making

    From the painful cries of mothers to a terrifying scream

    We recorded it and put it into our machine

    They told us all they wanted

    Was a sound that could kill someone from a distance

    So we go ahead and the meters are over in the red

    It's a mistake in the making

    It could feel like falling in love

    It could feel so bad

    It could feel so good

    It could sing you to sleep

    But that dream is your enemy

    We won't be there to be blamed

    We won't be there to snitch

    I just pray that someone there can hit the switch

    They told us all they wanted

    Was a sound that could kill someone from a distance

    So we go ahead and the meters are over in the red

    It's a mistake in the making

    And the public are warned to stay off


  • The Last Farewell ~ Roger Whittaker

    Roger Whittaker (born 22 March 1936) is a British singer-songwriter and musician, who was born in Nairobi to English parents. His music is an eclectic mix of folk music and popular songs in addition to radio airplay hits. He is best known for his baritone singing voice and trademark whistling ability as well as his guitar skills.

    He is widely known for his version of "Wind Beneath My Wings" (1982), as well as his own compositions "Durham Town (The Leavin')" (1969) and "I Don't Believe in 'If' Anymore" (1970). American audiences are most familiar with his 1970 hit "New World in the Morning" and his 1975 hit "The Last Farewell", the latter of which is his only single to hit the Billboard Hot 100 (it made the Top 20) and also hit No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart. His final top-charting hit was "Albany", which scored No. 1 in West Germany in 1982.


    "The Last Farewell" is a song from 1971 by the British folk singer Roger Whittaker. Whittaker hosted a radio programme in The United Kingdom in 1971, backed by a full orchestra with arrangements by Zack Lawrence. Whittaker is quoted as saying that "one of the ideas I had was to invite listeners to send their poems or lyrics to me and I would make songs out of them. We got a million replies, and I did one each week for 26 weeks."

    Ron A. Webster, a silversmith from Birmingham, England, sent Whittaker his poem entitled "The Last Farewell", and this became one of the selections to appear on the radio programme. It was subsequently recorded and featured on Whittaker's 1971 album New World in the Morning (A Special Kind of Man in the US and Canada). Although the song failed to reach the music charts then, it is one of the fewer than forty all-time singles to have sold 10 million (or more) physical copies worldwide.


  • WAS THERE VOTE RIGGING IN THE CANADIAN E...

    A returning officer source stated there was a new policy for scrutineers this election. The liberals made good use of it. They hovered over the workers all day and were given access to the tabulating sheets. They copied voter ID numbers and left for their lairs all day. These sheets carry the voter ID numbers. They could most likely check them on the voters' list. What could they possibly do with this information? Could they create a vote in a digital format away from the box? There has to be a scam involved in this especially in the Toronto area. The seats don't jive with the percentages of the votes.

    My original comment was how could CTV, CBC and Global say with certainty there was a liberal minority government before the polls were reported? I saw that news at 10:20. The results weren't reported until 11 p.m. So the liberal party had the results of the votes and perhaps even had the means to tweak them in their favor.

    I find it uncanny as well that there is no interest in the process in general and most importantly by the shooting sports fraternity which has its own media. They plan to take your rights and seize your property with a long term room reservation at the crowbar hotel, and we blithely walk to our demise in a state of hopelessness. I've encouraged for years for the shooting sports enthusiasts to embrace alternative media over the years to the echo of silence. This reporter pretty much gave up the sport to be the sentinel. Primarily now my audience is American. I fill in as a host of Power Hour Nation a truly honorific global operation transmitted around the world on WWCR in Tennessee. The key to victory is to change the channel. It is based on the First Nation's credo about which wolf survives the one you feed. If you feed the wolf that's going to eat you, the conclusion is already set.

    Fire

    I'll take you to burn

    Fire

    I'll take you to learn

    I'll see you burn!

    You fought hard and you saved and learned

    but all of it's going to burn

    And your mind

    Your tiny mind

    You know you've really been so blind

    Now's your time burn your mind

    You're falling far too far behind

    Oh no

    Oh no

    Oh no

    You gonna burn!

    Fire

    To destroy all you've done

    Fire

    To end all you've become

    I'll feel your burn!

    You've been living like a little girl

    In the middle of your little world

    And your mind

    Your tiny mind

    You know you've really been so blind

    Now's your time burn your mind

    You're falling far too far behind

    Fire

    I'll take you to burn

    Fire

    I'll take you to learn

    You gonna burn, burn, burn

    Fire

    I'll take you to burn

    Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) is a folk rock supergroup made up of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash. They are known as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (CSNY) when joined by occasional fourth member Neil Young. They are noted for their intricate vocal harmonies, often tumultuous interpersonal relationships, political activism, and lasting influence on American music and culture. All four members of CSNY have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, though Young's inductions were for work not involving the group.


    Well, I came upon a child of God

    He was walking along the road

    And I asked him, Tell where are you going?

    This he told me


    Said, I'm going down to Yasgur's Farm,

    Gonna join in a rock and roll band.

    Got to get back to the land and set my soul free.


    We are stardust, we are golden,

    We are billion year old carbon,

    And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.


    Well, then can I walk beside you?

    I have come to lose the smog,

    And I feel myself a cog in somethin' turning.

    But then maybe it's the time of man.

    And I don't know who I am,

    But life is for learning.


    We are stardust, we are golden,

    We are billion year old carbon,

    And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.


    We are stardust, we are golden,

    We are billion year old carbon,

    And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.


    By the time we got to Woodstock,

    We were half a million strong

    And everywhere was a song and a celebration.

    And I dreamed I saw the bomber jet planes

    Riding shotgun in the sky,

    Turning into butterflies

    Above our nation.


    We are stardust, we are golden,

    We are caught in the devils bargain,

    And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.


    These lyrics make very interesting sense in terms of The War of the Multiverse

    "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" (sometimes rendered "Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On") is a song written by Dave "Curlee" Williams and usually credited to him and James Faye "Roy" Hall. The song was first recorded by Big Maybelle, though the best-known version is the 1957 rock and roll/rockabilly version by Jerry Lee Lewis.

    Jerry Lee Lewis (born September 29, 1935) is an American singer-songwriter, musician, and pianist, often known by his nickname, The Killer. He has been described as "rock & roll's first great wild man."

    A pioneer of rock and roll and rockabilly music, Lewis made his first recordings in 1956 at Sun Records in Memphis. "Crazy Arms" sold 300,000 copies in the South, but it was his 1957 hit "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" that shot Lewis to fame worldwide. He followed this with "Great Balls of Fire", "Breathless" and "High School Confidential". However, Lewis's rock and roll career faltered in the wake of his marriage to Myra Gale Brown, his 13-year-old cousin.

    Video footage shows Mrs Merkel trembling, shaking back and forth alongside Finland's prime minister during a ceremony in Berlin on Wednesday.

    After the incident, Mrs Merkel said she was "very well" and there was "no need to worry".

    A government spokesperson said she would continue meetings as planned.

    Mrs Merkel, 64, was last seen trembling two weeks ago ahead of a trip to Japan for the G20 summit. She told journalists at the summit she was fine.

    The Band Wagon is a 1953 American musical-comedy film directed by Vincente Minnelli, starring Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse. It tells the story of an aging musical star who hopes a Broadway show will restart his career. However, the play's director wants to make it a pretentious retelling of the Faust legend and brings in a prima ballerina who clashes with the star. Along with Singin' in the Rain (1952), it is regarded as one of the finest of the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer musicals, although it was only a modest box-office success on first release.

    William Boone Daniels (September 12, 1915 ? October 7, 1988), better known as Billy Daniels, was an American singer active in the United States and Europe from the mid-1930s to 1988, notable for his hit recording of "That Old Black Magic" and his pioneering performances on early 1950s television. He was one of the first African-American entertainers to cross over into the mainstream and his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame lies alongside that of Jerry Lewis.

    Daniels was born in Jacksonville, Florida, where his father was a postmaster and notary. His mother was a schoolteacher and organist. Daniels had a heritage of Portuguese sailor, Native American (Choctaw), African American, and frontiersman Daniel Boone.

    In 1935, Daniels moved from Jacksonville to New York to attend Columbia University. He planned to become a lawyer, but he was sidetracked during the Depression. His grandmother was a seamstress in Harlem for the Ziegfeld Follies, and she encouraged her grandson to sing at Dickie Wells, the club where he first worked as a dishwasher, then a singing waiter. There he was discovered by bandleader Erskine Hawkins, who hired him as a featured vocalist. He toured with the Erskine Hawkins Band in 1935–36 and then returned to Harlem. Throughout 1938, he sang daily on New York radio for 12 different sponsors. "It was me or the horse racing," Daniels remarked.


    Daniels performed frequently at nightclubs on New York's famed 52nd Street, where he was one of the first singers to leave the big-band scene and pursue a solo career. He sometimes made three 52nd Street club performances per night. In 1945, he played intermission with Charlie Parker at the Spotlite Club on 52nd Street.

    Daniels had several accompanists, including Nat Cole, while in New York. In 1948, he teamed with ex-big-band pianist Benny Payne, who had been Cab Calloway's pianist in the Cotton Club. Payne remained as accompanist for the rest of Daniel's career.
