    I can’t imagine that I never heard this before!

                                                                            “To The Moon And Back

    She’s taking her time making up 
    the reasons 
    To justify all the hurt inside 
    Guess she knows from the smile 
    and the look in their eyes 
    Everyone’s got a theory about the 
    bitter one
    They’re saying, “Mamma never loved 
    And, “Daddy never keeps in touch 
    That’s why she shies away from 
    human affection” 
    But somewhere in a private place 
    She packs her bags for outer space 
    And now she’s waiting for the right 
    kind of pilot to come 
    And she’ll say to him 
    She’s saying 

    [chorus:] 

    I would fly to the moon & back if 
    If you’ll be my baby 
    Got a ticket for a world where we 
    So would you be my baby? 

    She can’t remember a time when she 
    felt needed
    If love was red then she was colour 
    blind
    All her friends they’ve been tried for 
    treason
    And crimes that were never defined 
    She’s saying, “Love is like a barren 
    place,
    And reaching out for human faith is 
    Is like a journey I just don’t have a 
    map for”
    So baby’s gonna take a dive and 
    Push the shift to overdrive 
    Send a signal that she’s hanging 
    All her hopes on the stars 
    What a pleasant dream
    Just saying 

    [chorus]

    (hold on… hold on…) 

    Mamma never loved her much 
    And Daddy never keeps in touch 
    That’s why she shies away from 
    human affection 
    But somewhere in a private place 
    She packs her bags for outer space 
    And now she’s waiting for the right 
    kind of pilot to come 
    And she’ll say to him 
    Just saying 

    [chorus twice]

    Don’t listen to this with expectations of understanding what’s being said in the music. (Consider that this has more often than not been my challenge with music in Hindi, Telugu, Urdu, Tamil, and other languages from South Asia. 🙂 ) Listen to the beauty of the music… Bruno Brogio, another member of the community, shared this with me this morning…

    Enjoy. It’s a wonderful sound! (Or I think it is!)

    Pity I didn’t find this one during the month of Capricorn, but the imagery here brings to mind both Capricorn and Aquarius. So it’s great timing all the same since Venus is in Capricorn and Mercury is still retrograde in Aquarius!  😀 (The graphic is the reference to my comment. The music stands alone. Enjoy, Space Goats and all!

    Doramas who posted the music wrote the following in Spanish and in English. Here’s the full text of what was said along with the times of the planets for each movement:

    The Planets, Op. 32, is a seven-movement orchestral suite by the English composer Gustav Holst, written between 1914 and 1916. Each movement of the suite is named after a planet of the Solar System and its corresponding astrological character as defined by Holst. With the exception of Earth (the centre of all yet influentially inert astrologically, all the astrological planets known during the work’s composition are represented.

    From its premiere to the present day, the suite has been enduringly popular, influential, widely performed and frequently recorded. The work was not heard in a complete public performance, however, until some years after it was completed. Although there were four performances between September 1918 and October 1920, they were all either private (the first performance, in London) or incomplete (two others in London and one in Birmingham). The premiere was at the Queen’s Hall on 29 September 1918, conducted by Holst’s friend Adrian Boult before an invited audience of about 250 people. The first complete public performance was finally given in London by Albert Coates conducting the London Symphony Orchestra on 15 November 1920.

    Instrumentation

    The work is scored for an exceptionally large orchestra:

    Woodwind: 4 flutes (3rd doubling 1st piccolo; 4th doubling 2nd piccolo and a “bass flute in G”, actually an alto flute), 3 oboes (3rd doubling bass oboe), an English horn, 3 clarinets in B-flat, a bass clarinet in B-flat, 3 bassoons and a contrabassoon
    Brass: 6 horns in F, 4 trumpets in C, 3 trombones (2 tenor and 1 bass), a “tenor tuba” (euphonium in B-flat) and a bass tuba
    Keyboards: a celesta, and an organ
    Percussion: 6 timpani (2 players, 3 drums each except in “Uranus” having 4 drums for 1st and 2 drums for 2nd), a bass drum, a snare drum, cymbals, a triangle, a tam-tam, a tambourine, a glockenspiel, a xylophone, and tubular bells
    Strings: 2 harps, 1st and 2nd violins, violas, cellos, and double basses
    Voices: (“Neptune” only), 2 three-part women’s choruses (SSA) located in an adjoining room which is to be screened from the audience.

    The suite has seven movements, each named after a planet and its corresponding astrological character (see Planets in astrology):

    00:00 I.Mars, the Bringer of War

    07:21 II.Venus, the Bringer of Peace

    15:58 III.Mercury, the Winged Messenger

    20:14 IV.Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity

    27:50 V.Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age

    37:12 VI.Uranus, the Magician

    43:15 VII.Neptune, the Mystic

    Minus the Luminaries, the Sun and the Moon, imagine what he would have done if he had known about Pluto in time! He died just four years after Pluto’s discovery on February 18, 1930…

    What do you get when you mix Tamil and Assamese in 5 minutes? Exquisite sounds that truly leave one breathless! I think you’ll agree even without knowing what the lyrics are saying…

    I know sometimes I use this phrase a lot, but it speaks to me, to my heart because we are indeed all a family: Vasudhaiva kutumbakam. Sounds like those created in this video are great proof of that.

    Expecto, I think you’ll enjoy this version of Nothing Else Matters…a perfect day for it with Venus conjunct Neptune. I think you’ll agree… The sound is pure heaven!

    Yep – seen this one. Thanks for sharing, it’s great! Nothing Else Matters may easily be the most covered song on different instruments. 🙂

    We in the Northeastern region of the US are just now starting to get a bit warmer, but we haven’t gone above 26C here yet. But I understand it’s summer in full blaze again in India. I remember reading last year that people thought the summer was the hottest ever, and this morning I read that people were relating this summer to the summer of 2006. Whichever is the case for you, such thoughts (I saw similar thoughts from the UK this morning, btw), here’s a song that seems appropriate for the “occasion.” 😀
