Música de hoje:

A música que selecionei hoje, The cat and the moon, é de um musical baseado no livro O senhor dos Aneis, de J.R.R. Tolkien (a maioria conhece o livro, ou o filme do Peter Jackson, mas sim, há um musical!)

Lyrics:
[FRODO]
There’s an inn of old renown
Where they brew a beer so brown
Moon came rolling down the hill
One Hevnsday night to drink his fill.

[FRODO/MERRY]
On a three-stringed fiddle there
Played the Ostler’s cat so fair
The hornèd Cow that night was seen
To dance a jig upon the green.

Called by the fiddle to the
Middle of the muddle where the
Cow with a caper sent the 
Small dog squealing.
Moon in a fuddle went to
Huddle by the griddle but he
Slipped in a puddle and the
World went reeling.

Downsides went up – hey!
Outsides went wide.
As the fiddle
Played a twiddle
And the Moon slept till Sterrenday.
Upsides went west- hey!
Broadsides went boom.
With a twiddle on the fiddle
In the middle by the griddle
And the Moon slept till Sterrenday.

[FRODO]
Dish from off the dresser pranced,
Found a spoon and gaily danced.

[PIPPIN]
Horses neighed and champed their bits
For the bloodshot Moon had lost his wits.

[MERRY]
Well, cow jumped over, Dog barked wild,
Moon lay prone and sweetly smiled.

[SAM]
Ostler cried, “Play faster, Cat!

[ALL]
Because we all want to dance like that.”

[FRODO/PIPPIN]
Gambol and totter till you’re 
Hotter than a hatter and you
Spin all akimbo
Like a windmill flailing.
Whirl with a clatter till you
Scatter every cotter and the
Strings start a-pinging as the
World goes sailing.

[ALL HOBBITS]
Downsides go up – hey!
Outsides go wide.
You can clatter
With your platter
But the Moon slept till Sterrenday.
Upsides go West – hey!
Broadsides go boom.
With a batter and a clatter
You can shatter every platter 
But the Moon slept till Sterrenday.

Outsides go wide.
With a twiddle on the fiddle
In the middle by the griddle
And the Moon slept till Sterrenday.
Upsides go West – hey!

You can shatter every platter 
But the Moon slept till Sterrenday.

Petition Against Trump’s Entry Ban for Refugees

“Thousands of academics, including 11 Nobel Laureates, signed a petition against US President Donald Trump’s order suspending the entry to the United States of Syrian refugees and nationals from several other countries in the Middle East and North Africa.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Friday, Trump signed an executive order blocking all Syrian refugees from entering the United States  until adequate changes are made to the Refugee Admission Program (USRAP) and suspending the entry of all nationals of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days.

“We, the undersigned academics and researchers from a variety of fields of study, backgrounds, and personal convictions, would like to voice our concern and strongly oppose this measure… We strongly denounce this ban and urge the President to reconsider going forward with this Executive Order,” the petition said.

The academics said in the petition that the order was discriminatory, detrimental to the country’s national interests and imposing a “undue burden on members of our community.”

During the presidential campaign, Trump had made several controversial statements with regard to immigrants, Latin Americans, Muslims and women. His statements included a ban on Muslims traveling to the United States and building a wall along the border with Mexico to tackle illegal migration”.

Música de hoje

Standing here on sacred ground
Some days it’s a mad world, let it be
Words of promise fill the air, empty voices
How long have we waited?

And every time I hold your hand
You bring to me this promised land
I live for you, this promised land

Take me there and back again
Some days it’s a sad world let it be
What’s the point of looking for this power divine?
It’s already in my changes
And every time I hear your voice
I realize I have a choice
To live again
I deserve this choice
To live again

Our heaven will be now
You are the song from the book of time
To realize what is yours is mine
We are meant to be
All because our love has always been
You are the center of my day
You are my guide in every way
We were meant to be
All because our love has always been there
Giving me the light, yes it’s been there giving me the light

Second nature sings to me
Some days it’s a dark world, let it be
I define my right to be
I can’t follow those who’ve lost their vision
And every time I hold your hand
You redesign my promised land
I live for you, this promised land
I live for you

You are the song from the book of time
To realize what is yours is mine
We are meant to be

All because our love has always been
You are the center of my day
You are my guide in every way
We were meant to be
All because our love has always been there
Giving me the light
Yes it’s been there giving me the light

You are the song from the book of time
To realize what is yours is mine
We are meant to be
All because our love has always been
You are the center of my day
You are my guide in every way
We were meant to be
All because our love has always been there
Giving me the light
Yes it’s been there giving me the light
