A touch of country, anyone ? sherlock_holm
Ham her, han ser næsten lige så godt ud som jeg gjorde for 30 år siden *LOL*
Kenny Rogers, Ruby, don't take your love to town:

Men gode gener fornægte sig ikke, vel ? Han behøver da ikke løbe ret stærkt i vore dage heller, eller ?

Duetter ! sherlock_holm
Er det ikke med sange som i det virkelige liv, at først i duetter kommer spændvidden rigtig frem ?
Kenny Rogers og Dolly Parton, Islands in the Stream:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lixDK_tMEhEHan plejer at kalde hende "my very dear friend", men rygterne siger, at de ikke kan udstå hinanden *LOL*

Her er en lille britisk poptøs, der havde et hit omkring 1980 med "9 to 5" og misbrugte sin chance med en Jams Bond-melodi "For your eyes only", men i denne duet går det da okay, ikke ?
Kenny Rogers og Sheena Easton, We got tonight:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogWcJeV7r4Y&feature=related

På trip ! sherlock_holm
Igen en duet. Her er det Lee, der tager slæbet: skriver teks, melodi, synger den bærende del, producerer og financierer. Men Nancy er, for nu at citere Evita, "smack in the right place at the right time".
Lee Hazlewood og Nancy Sinatra, Some velvet Morning (when I'm straight *LOL*):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb-SVPJM4L4

På samme måde, denne fantastiske kunstner, som nu desværre er død, emd "et godt skår", men hende her, hun kan også synge på egen hånd.

Korrektion sherlock_holm
Hvor jeg dog glæder mig til jul, så jeg kan få det tastatur, jeg har ønsket mig - et tastatur, der kan stave :-)

Jeg prøver igen, i håb om denne gang at ramme linket.

Lidt humor er da ikke af vejen, vel ?

Hvis det er flaskekasteren sherlock_holm
bag baren, du mener, så er det nok ikke helt galt :-)
I hvert fald bærer mit sofabord præg af mine forsøg *LOL*

Men ellers forsøger jeg at køre en seriøs tråd her !

Poesi ? sherlock_holm
Måske er dette det forkerte forum til dette, men I kan jo bede om at få det slettet *LOL*

Kris Kristofferson har skrevet denne sang, og der er et par pointer i den, så jeg lægger teksten bagved.
"And some people swear he's my double:
And some even say we're the same."

Kris Kristofferson, The silvertongued Devil and I:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd7B7YdvT4c&feature=related

I took myself down to the Tally Ho Tavern,
To buy me a bottle of beer.
And I sat me down by a tender young maiden,
Who's eyes were as dark as her hair.
And as I was searching from bottle to bottle,
For something un-foolish to say.
That silver tongued devil just slipped from the shadows,
And smilingly stole her away.

I said: "Hey, little girl, don't you know he's the devil.
"He's everything that I ain't.
"Hiding intentions of evil,
"Under the smile of a saint.
"All he's good for is getting in trouble,
"And shiftin' his share of the blame.
"And some people swear he's my double:
"And some even say we're the same.
"But the silver-tongued devil's got nothing to lose,
"I'll only live 'til I die.
"We take our own chances and pay our own dues,
"The silver tongued devil and I."

Like all the fair maidens who've laid down beside him,
She knew in her heart that he'd lied.
Nothin' that I could have said could have saved her,
No matter how hard that she tried.
'Cos she'll offer her charms to the darkness and danger,
Of somethin' that she's never known.
And open her arms at the smile of a stranger,
Who'll love her and leave her alone.

And you know, he's the devil.
He's everything that I ain't.
Hiding intentions of evil,
Under the smile of a saint.
All he's good for is getting in trouble,
And shiftin' his share of the blame.
And some people swear he's my double:
And some even say we're the same.
But the silver-tongued devil's got nothing to lose,
I'll only live 'til I die.
We take our own chances and pay our own dues,
Ah ha ha ha.

The silver tongued devil and I.

Han var i gang med en sang om en servitrice på en highway-diner, da "Grease" kom - "Loving her was greasier than anything I ever did", så den "døde" der - I stedet lkom denne:
Henning Stærk, Sweetheart:

og Kris justerede sin tekst:
Kris Kristofferson, Loving her was easier (than anything I'll ever do again)
