If you happen to be one of the two followers of our blog, I must apologize for the monopolization of posts. But once more, it has not been so due to my having too much initiative but instead for my colleagues having none 😛
But the main focus must go to the original version, which belongs to Elvis Presley, the King – not only because he must be given credited for having written a great melody and quite powerful lyrics (that unfortunately are still true more that 40 years later), but also because it is still the best version in my opinion (at least from the three I know). Hope you like it too 😉
Well, I was innocently cleaning the recently new (in my library) Dolly Parton discography when I stumbled into an amazing song that Dolly covered and I immediately decided that I had to share it in the blog!
Well, I’m talking about Cat Stevens‘ Peace Train, a hymn to peace (heard about it?) and one of my favourite songs 🙂 I’m sure you won’t be indifferent to it, if only for the lyrics.
Just a little detail – gotta love him saying “this music basically”… you’ll hear the rest 😉
A couple of months ago, when we started this blog, we were 7 college students. From July until now, 3 of us have started working, one each month (I was the last to join). So I thought I should make a post with a song about work.
And when I think of work the first song that comes to my mind is Dolly Parton‘s “9 to 5” (probably because I don’t know that many songs about work, even if there are a lot). It does not fit perfectly in Portuguese’s timetable – we usually work 9 to 6, as almost everyone has a one-hour lunch break -, but it is still nice 😛
Enjoy your weekend 😉
PS – just a not to mention that this song was originally written for the film Nine to Five.
