Sau đây là một số bài hát nổi tiếng của Adele:

1. Rolling in the deep

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch, and it’s bringing me out the dark
Finally I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out and I’ll lay your sheet bare
See how I’ll leave with every piece of you
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch
And it’s bringing me out the dark

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

Baby, I have no story to be told
But I’ve heard one of you
And I’m gonna make your head burn
Think of me in the depths of your despair
Making a home down there
As mine sure won’t be shared

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand
And you played it to the beat

Throw your soul through every open door
Count your blessings to find what you look for
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow

(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
We could have had it all
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
It all, it all, it all
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

We could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

You could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)

But you played it
You played it
You played it
You played it to the beat..

2. Someone like you

I heard
That you’re settled down
That you
Found a girl
And you’re
Married now

I heard
That your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things
I didn’t give to you

Old friend
Why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back
Or hide from the light

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over

Never mind
I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me I beg
I remember you said
“Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead.”
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead,
Yeah.

You know how
The time flies
Only yesterday
It was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise
Of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over, yeah.

Never mind
I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me I beg
I remember you said
“Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead”

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
And memories made.
Who would have known
How bittersweet
This would taste?

Never mind
I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead”

Never mind
I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you, too
Don’t forget me I beg
I remember you said
“Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead”

Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead

3. Set fire to the rain

I let it fall, my heart,
And as it fell, you rose claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

My hands, they’re strong
But my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

But there’s a side to you
That I never knew, never knew.
All the things you’d say
They were never true, never true,
And the games you play
You would always win, always win.

[Chorus:]
But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Let it burn while I cried,
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

When I lay with you
I could stay there
Close my eyes
Feel you’re here forever
You and me together
Nothing gets better

‘Cause there’s a side to you
That I never knew, never knew,
All the things you’d say,
They were never true, never true,
And the games you play
You would always win, always win.

[Chorus:]
But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Let it burn while I cried,
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

I set fire to the rain
And I feel lost into the flames
And it felt something dark
‘Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time!

Sometimes I wake up by the door,
That once you gone, must be waiting for you
Even now that we’re already over
I can’t help myself from looking for you.

[Chorus:]
I set fire to the rain,
Watch it pour as I touch your face,
Let it burn when I cried,
‘Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain,
And I feel lost into the flames
And it felt something like…
‘Cause I knew that was the last time
The last time, oh, oh!

Let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn

Daydreamer
Sittin’ on the seat
Soaking up the sun
He is a real lover
Makin’ up the past
And feeling up his girl
Like he’s never felt
Her figure before
Jaw dropper
Looks good
When he when he walks
He is the subject of their talk
He would be hard to chase
But good to catch
And he could change the world
With his hands
Behind his back, oh

You can find him sittin’
On your doorstep
Waiting for the surprise
It will feel like
He’s been there for hours
And you can tell
That he’ll be there for life

4.  Daydreamer

With eyes that make you melt
He lends his coat for shelter
Because he’s there for you
When he shouldn’t be
But he stays all the same
Waits for you
And then sees you through
There’s no way
I could describe him
All I say is
Just what I’m hoping for

But I will find him
Sittin’ on my doorstep
Waiting for the surprise
It will feel
Like he’s been
There for hours
And I can tell
He’ll be there for life
And I can tell
He’ll be there for life.

5.  Make you feel my love

When the rain
Is blowing in your face
And the whole world
Is on your case
I could offer you
A warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows
And the stars appear
And there is no one there
To dry your tears
I could hold you
For a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you
Haven’t made
Your mind up yet
But I would never
Do you wrong
I’ve known it
From the moment
That we met
No doubt in my mind
Where you belong

I’d go hungry
I’d go black and blue
I’d go crawling
Down the avenue
No, there’s nothing
That I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging
On the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
Though winds of change
Are blowing wild and free
You ain’t seen nothing
Like me yet

I could make you happy
Make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends
Of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love

6. Don’t you remember

When will I see you again?
You left with no goodbye, not a single word was said,
No final kiss to seal any seams,
I had no idea of the state we were in,

I know I have a fickle heart and bitterness,
And a wandering eye, and a heaviness in my head,

But don’t you remember?
Don’t you remember?
The reason you loved me before,
Baby, please remember me once more,

When was the last time you thought of me?
Or have you completely erased me from your memory?
I often think about where I went wrong,
The more I do, the less I know,

But I know I have a fickle heart and bitterness,
And a wandering eye, and a heaviness in my head,

But don’t you remember?
Don’t you remember?
The reason you loved me before,
Baby, please remember me once more,

Gave you the space so you could breathe,
I kept my distance so you would be free,
And hope that you find the missing piece,
To bring you back to me,

Why don’t you remember?
Don’t you remember?
The reason you loved me before,
Baby, please remember me once more,

When will I see you again?

7.  Love song

[Verse 1:]
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

[Chorus:]
How ever far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

[Verse 2:]
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

[Chorus:]
How ever far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you [x2]

Chasing pavements
I’ve made up my mind,
Don’t need to think it over
If I’m wrong, I am right
Don’t need to look no further,
This ain’t lust
I know this is love
But, if I tell the world
I’ll never say enough
’cause it was not said to you
And that’s exactly what I need to do
If I end up with you

[Chorus]
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place
Should I leave it there
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements
Even if it leads nowhere

I build myself up
And fly around in circles
Waitin’ as my heart drops
And my back begins to tingle
Finally, could this be it

[Chorus]
Or should I give up
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements
Even if it leads nowhere
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place
Should I leave it there

Should I give up
Or should I just keep chasin’ pavements
Even if it leads nowhere
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place should I leave it there
Should I give up
Or should I just keep on chasin’ pavements
Should I just keep no chasin’ pavements
Ohh oh

[Chorus x2]

Oooh her eyes, her eyes make the stars look like they’re not shining
Her hair, her hair falls perfectly without her trying
She’s so beautiful and I tell her everyday

Yeah I know, I know when I compliment her she won’t believe me
And it’s so, it’s so sad to think that she don’t see what I see
But every time she asks me “Do I look okay?” I say

When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for a while
Cause girl you’re amazing just the way you are

Yeaaah her lips, her lips I could kiss them all day if she let me
Her laugh, her laugh she hates but I think it’s so sexy
She’s so beautiful and I tell her everyday

Oh you know, you know, you know I’d never ask you to change
If perfects what you’re searching for then just stay the same
So don’t even bother asking if you look okay you know I’ll say

When I see your face (When I see your face)
There’s not a thing that I would change
‘Cause you’re amazing (you’re amazing)
Just the way you are
And when you smile (when you smile )
The whole world stops and stares for a while
‘Cause girl you’re amazing just the way you are

The way you are, the way you are
Girl you’re amazing just the way you are

When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change

And in my dreams I’ve kissed your lips a thousand times
I sometimes see you pass outside my door
Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

I can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your smile
You’re all I’ve ever wanted, (and) my arms are open wide
‘Cause you know just what to say
And you know just what to do
And I want to tell you so much, I love you…

I long to see the sunlight in your hair
And tell you time and time again how much I care
Sometimes I feel my heart will overflow
Hello, I’ve just got to let you know

‘Cause I wonder where you are
And I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely, or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart
For I haven’t got a clue
But let me start by saying, I love you…

Is it me you’re looking for?
‘Cause I wonder where you are

But let me start by saying… I love you

She took the midnight train goin anywhere
Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train goin anywhere
A singer in a smoky room
The smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on
Strangers, waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the nights
Streetlight, people, living just to find emotion
Hiding, somewhere in the night
Working hard to get my fill,
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin’ anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some are born to sing the blues
And now the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on
Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight, people, living just to find emotion
Hiding, somewhere in the night
Don’t stop believin’
Hold on to that feelin’
Streetlight, people
Don’t stop believin’
Hold on to that feelin’
Streetlight, people
Don’t stop.

1. Fall for You ( lyrics)


2. Why

The buttons on my phone are worn thin
I don’t think that I knew the chaos I was getting in.
But I’ve broken all my promises to you
I’ve broken all my promises to you.

Why do you do this to me?
Why do you do this so easily?
You make it hard to smile because
You make it hard to breathe
Why do you do this to me?

A phrasing that’s a single tear,
Is harder than I ever feared
And you were left feeling so alone.
Because these days aren\’t easy
Like they have been once before
These days aren\’t easy anymore.

Why do you do this to me?
Why do you do this so easily?
You make it hard to smile because
You make it hard to breathe
Why do you do this to me?
To me, to me, to me.

I should have known this wasn\’t real
And fought it off and fought to feel
What matters most? Everything
That you feel while listening to every word that I sing.
I promise you I will bring you home
I will bring you home.

Why do you do this to me?
Why do you do this so easily?
You make it hard to smile because
You make it hard to breathe
Why do you do this to me?

Why do you do this to me?
Why do you do this so easily?
You make it hard to smile because
You make it hard to breathe
Why do you do this to me?
To me, to me, to me.

Merry Christmas from Đình Nguyên

 

1.  Joy To The World – David Archuleta

.

.

Joy to the World, the Lord has come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the World, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

Heaven sings and He brings
All these best things to this world
And we pray, and we say

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.

Joy to the World, the Lord has come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

2.  Snowflakes of Love – Toni Braxton

.

On this day, snowy day
Let me thank you for the joy you’re giving me…
I’m so happy…
I have snowflakes of love smiling down on me
winter bliss when we kiss
Every wish my lips could see
I’m so happy…
I have snowflakes of love smiling down on me

Snowy day
Would you please take me away
Away with you…
Hold me so closely
Like the moonlight lights the sky…

In my dreams of soft winter breeze
Eases my mind, but when I wake
there’s nothing but leaves
Still, I’m happy…
I have snowflakes of love smiling down on me

Oh, how I imagine the day we met
And those tingles from those little butterflies…
Reminiscing, I get so happy
I just break down and cry

Candlelight burning bright
Underneath a cool, starry night
You and me, endlessly, it’s the greatest gift
that love could give to me

On this day, snowy day
Let me thank you for the joy you’ve given to me…
I’m so happy…

3.  The Only Gift – Nsync

.

.

I was making my list
I was checking it twice
In the middle of this
I got tears in my eyes
For in my foolish heart
There was one simple truth
The only gift I wanted was you
I was trimming the tree
I was stringing the lights
While the radio played “Silent Night”
There were present you sent
Though there were quite a few
The only gift I wanted was you

You need to be home with me
Alone with me
Holding me next to the Christmas tree
Kissing under the mistletoe
As candles blow
Please come home soon
It’s not the same without you

As the bittersweet night
Had come to an end
I was saying goodbye
To our family and friends
And they all wished me well
And I knew that I knew
The only gift I wanted was you

You need to be home with me
Alone with me
Holding me next to the Christmas tree
Kissing under the mistletoe
As candles blow
Please come home soon
It’s not the same without you

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
(la la la la la la…)

The only gift I wanted was you
You need to be home with me
Alone with me
Holding me next to the Christmas tree
Kissing under the mistletoe
As candles blow
Please come home soon
It’s not the same without you

I was making my list
I was checking it twice
In the middle of this
I got tears in my eyes
For in my wishful heart
There was one simple truth
The only gift I wanted was you

4. Miss You Most ( At Christmas) – Mariah Carey.

.

.

The fire is burning
The room’s all aglow
Outside the December wind blows
Away in the distance
The carolers sing in the snow
Everybody’s laughing
The world is celebrating
And everyone’s so happy
Except for me tonight
Because…

[Chorus:]
I miss you
Most at Christmas time
And I can’t get you
Get you off my mind
Every other season comes along
And I’m all right
But then I miss you
Most at Christmas time

I gaze out the window
This cold winters’ night
At all of the twinkling lights
Alone in the darkness
Remembering when you were mine
Everybody’s smiling
The whole world is rejoicing
And everyone’s embracing
Except for you and I
Baby…

[Chorus]

In the springtime
Those memories start to fade
With the April rain
Through the summer days
Till Autumn’s leaves are gone
I get by without you
Till the snow begins to fall
And then…

[Chorus]

.

5. In Love On Christmas – Nsync

.

Jingle bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way
Jingle bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way
Jingle bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way
Jingle bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way
Christmas time
Is so special
When you’re kissing me
Under the mistletoe
Exchanging love and gifts
Sitting in front of the tree
Me holding you
And you holding me

We’ll share
I’ve prayed
To be loved
On Christmas
Because Christmas love gives me that feelin’
We’ll share
I’ve prayed
To be loved
On Christmas
Because everybody should be in love with somebody on Christmas

Last year, Christmas
It happened without us
I was all mixed up and confused
I didn’t know what to do, baby
I never thought I’d feel this way
I always thought Christmas was a happy day
I always prayed that Santa’d pack love on a sleigh and send it my way

We’ll share
I’ve prayed
To be loved
On Christmas
Because Christmas love gives me that feelin’
We’ll share
I’ve prayed
To be loved
On Christmas
Because everybody should be in love with somebody on Christmas

What a beautiful time it is
A time to open gifts
And play with all the kids
Yes it’s Christmas
Yes it’s Christmas time again
Girl I love you
Yes I love you
It’s Christmas time again
To be loved
On Christmas
Girl I love you baby
Yes I love you baby
What a beautiful time it is
A time to open gifts
Yes now it’s Christmas time
Now I am yours and you are mine
Oh when you kissing me
Right under my Christmas tree
Baby come close to me
‘Cause this is how it should be

We’ll share
I’ve prayed
To be loved
On Christmas
Because Christmas love gives me that feelin’
We’ll share
I’ve prayed
To be loved
On Christmas
Because everybody should be in love with somebody on Christmas.

8. Sing My Song for You – Demi Lovato & Joe Jonas

.

.
Didn’t know what to get you
Ordinary just wouldn’t do
But I just found that perfect gift for you

I hear church bells ‘a ringing
Carolers are singing harmony with me now
You are looking so lovely
Even if the lights go out

We’ve got mistletoe and firelight
On this cold December night
The snow outside will set the mood
As I sing my song

We’ve got mistletoe and firelight
On this cold December night
The snow outside will set the mood
As I sing my song for you

Lễ- Nhạc Giáng sinh 1

.

Lễ Giáng sinh, còn được gọi là lễ Thiên Chúa giáng sinh, Noel, Christmas hay Xmas (từ tiếng Pháp Noël, là viết tắt từ gốc Emmanuel, nghĩa là “Thiên Chúa ở cùng chúng ta”) là một ngày lễ kỷ niệm ngày Chúa Giê-su thành Nazareth sinh ra đời của phần lớn người Cơ Đốc giáo. Họ tin là Giê-su được sinh tại Bethlehem thuộc tỉnh Judea của nước Do Thái(Israel), lúc bấy giờ đang dưới quyền thống trị của Đế quốc La Mã giữa năm 6 TCN và năm 6.
Một số nước ăn mừng ngày này vào 25 tháng 12, một số nước lại vào tối ngày 24 tháng 12. Theo Công giáo Rôma, lễ chính thức là ngày 25 tháng 12 còn gọi là “lễ chính ngày”, còn lễ đêm 24 tháng 12 gọi là “lễ vọng”. Dù vậy, lễ đêm 24 tháng 12 thường thu hút tin đồ tham dự nhiều hơn. Những người theo Chính Thống giáo Đông phương vẫn sử dụng lịch Julius để định ngày này, cho nên họ tổ chức lễ Giáng sinh vào ngày 7 tháng 1 theo lịch Gregory.

Tên gọi
Chữ Christmas gồm có chữ Christ và Mas. Chữ Christ (Đấng chịu sức dầu) là tước vị của Đức Giêsu. Chữ Mas là chữ viết tắt của Mass (thánh lễ). Khi chữ Christ và Mas viết liền thành ra chữ Christmas. Christmas có nghĩa là ngày lễ của Đấng Christ, tức là ngày lễ Giáng sinh của Đức Giêsu.

Biểu tượng Giáng sinh và ý nghĩa

Vòng lá mùa vọng

Vòng lá mùa vọng là vòng tròn kết bằng cành lá xanh thường được đặt trên bàn hay treo lên cao để mọi người trông thấy. Cây xanh thường được trang hoàng trong các bữa tiệc của dịp Đông chí – dấu hiệu của mùa đông sắp kết thúc. Trên vòng lá đặt 4 cây nến. Tục lệ này khởi xướng bởi các tín hữu Pháo Lutheran ở Đức vào thế kỷ 16 để nói lên sự giao tranh giữa ánh sáng và bóng tối.
Vòng lá có hình tròn nói lên tính cách vĩnh hằng và tình yêu thương vô tận của Thiên Chúa. Màu xanh lá nói lên hi vọng rằng Đấng Cứu Thế sẽ đến cứu con người. 4 cây nến bao gồm ba cây màu tím – màu của Mùa Vọng, cây thứ 4 là màu hồng, là màu của Chúa Nhật thứ Ba mùa Vọng, hay còn gọi là Chúa Nhật Vui mừng.

Thiệp Giáng sinh

Bắt nguồn từ năm 1843 khi ông Henry Cole, một thương gia giàu có nước Anh, đã nhờ Horsley, một họa sỹ ở London, thiết kế một tấm thiệp thật đẹp để tặng bạn bè. Vào Noel năm đó, Horsley trình làng tấm thiệp đầu tiên trên thế giới và sau đó nó đã in ra 1000 bản. Thiệp Giáng sinh nhanh chóng bùng phát và trở thành mốt thịnh hành ở Anh trong suốt 10 năm kể từ khi Chính phủ Anh thông qua đạo luật năm 1846 cho phép bất kì người dân nào gửi thư đến bất kỳ nơi nào với giá rẻ. Không lâu sau, trào lưu này du nhập sang Đức và tới 30 năm sau người Mỹ mới chấp nhận nó.

Quà Giáng sinh
Những món quà biểu lộ tình yêu của mọi người với gia đình và bè bạn. Đối với một số người, những món quà Giáng Sinh còn có một ý nghĩa tín ngưỡng sâu sắc. Đó là lễ kỷ niệm ngày sinh của Chúa Giê-su, món quà mà Thiên chúa đã ban tặng cho con người.
Khi Chúa Giê-su cất tiếng khóc chào đời tại Bethlehem trong một cái máng cỏ, ba vị vua phương Đông đã đến để bày tỏ sự thành kính của mình. Họ mang đến ba món quà quý giá, đó là vàng, trầm hương và mộc dược. Vàng tượng trưng Chúa Giêsu là vua ( tức con Chúa Cha – Vua Nước Trời), trầm hương tượng trưng Giê-su là Thiên Chúa và mộc dược biểu hiện hình ảnh Giê-su bị đóng đinh trên cây thánh giá hay nói rõ hơn là sự chịu chết của Chúa Giêsu để cứu chuộc nhân loại.
Ba vị vua rất giàu có nhưng những người dân nghèo hầu như chẳng có tài sản cũng mang đến bất cứ những gì họ có thể để tỏ lòng thành kính với Chúa Hài đồng. Những người chăn cừu tặng Giê-su hoa quả và những món đồ chơi nhỏ do chính họ tạo ra.
Ông già Nô-en thường cưỡi xe tuần lộc trên trời, đến nhà có cây thông giáng sinh và leo qua ống khói để đem đến những món quà cho các em nhỏ đang ngủ và thường để quà trong những chiếc tất.

Giáng sinh ở Việt Nam
Ngày nay, ở Việt Nam, dù không chính thức nhưng Giáng sinh dần dần được coi như một ngày lễ chung, thường được tổ chức vào tối 24 và kéo sang ngày 25 tháng 12. Trong những ngày này, cây thông Nô-en được trang trí ở nhiều nơi bằng cây thật (thường là thông ba lá hoặc thông mã vĩ) hay thông nhân tạo làm bằng nhựa, không phải cây thông như ở các nước phương tây thường là họ Bách tán. Trên cây, người ta thường treo các đồ trang trí nhiều loại nhưng thường có những cặp chuông, dây giả tuyết, những chiếc ủng, các gói quà tượng trưng và đèn trang trí giống như các nước phương Tây…

Lễ Giáng sinh ở Việt Nam là một dịp sinh hoạt văn hóa cộng đồng nhộn nhịp, những đôi tình nhân âu yếm tặng quà cho nhau, trẻ em háo hức chờ sự xuất hiện của Santa, gia đình bè bạn rủ nhau hội hè, yến tiệc, hát karaoke. Người Việt Nam rất thích thú các ca khúc Giáng sinh, đặc biệt là Feliz Navidad.

( Theo Wikipedia )

Xin hân hạnh giới thiệu một số bài hát Giáng sinh cho cả  người lớn  và các teens :

1. White Christmas – Martina McBride


.

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the tree tops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
So may your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

2. Oh Santa! – Mariah Carey

.

OH SANTA

Santa’s gonna come and make him mine this Christmas
Santa’s gonna come and make him mine, mine
Oh Santa

Santa’s gonna come and make him mine this Christmas
Santa’s gonna come and make him mine, mine
Oh Santa

Santa
If you get this letter
Won’t you help me out
I know you’re kinda busy with your elves right now
And I don’t know how
You do the things you do while I sleep on Christmas eve

But it’s amazing
And I bet that you could bring me back my baby
Because every time I see Christmas lights
I feel this burn inside
And I just can’t take it

I saw them shopping last week
And his new girl was so bleak
And then I swore to myself
Santa’s gonna come and make him mine this Christmas night

Oh oh oh
Santa’s gonna come and make you mine this Christmas
Santa’s gonna come and make you mine, oh oh oh
Santa’s gonna come and make you mine this Christmas night

Oh Santa
I heard that it’s really gonna snow this year
So I hope Rudolph and them other 8 reindeer
Get you safely here
So you can scoop him up
And swoop him right down my chimney

I’ve been really, really, really good this year
So put on that red suit and make him appear
Make this Christmas cheer
Just ain’t the same without my baby
Come on oh Kris Kringle send me help

They say it’s unrealistic
But I believe in you Saint Nick
So grant this wish for me right quick
Santa won’t you come and make him mine this Christmas night

Oh oh oh
Santa’s gonna come and make you mine this Christmas
Santa’s gonna come and make you mine, oh oh oh
Santa’s gonna come and make you mine this Christmas night

Oh Santa!

Oh Santa Claus
If you get this letter
Please don’t make me wait
Cause all December I’ll be counting down the days
So hop on your sleigh
I promise that I won’t forget the milk and cookies

The trees all sparkly and gold
But inside I feel so cold
So soon as you leave the North Pole
Santa won’t you come and make him mine this Christmas

Santa’s gonna come and make you mine oh oh oh
Santa’s gonna come and make you mine this Christmas
Santa’s gonna come and make you mine oh oh oh
Santa’s gonna come and make you mine, mine.

3. The First Noel – David Archuleta


.

The first Noel the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds
in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

And they looked up and saw a star
Shining in the east beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel
Born is the King of Israel

4. Silent Night – David Archuleta


.
.
Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from Heaven afar
Heav’nly hosts sing Alleluia
Christ the Saviour is born
Christ the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, loves pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

5. All I want for Christmas is You – Mariah Carey


.

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
And I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I don’t need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won’t make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

I won’t ask for much this Christmas
I won’t even wish for snow
And I, I just wanna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe

I won’t make a list and send it
To the North Pole for St. Nick
I won’t even stay awake
To hear those magic reindeer click

Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding onto me so tight
What more can I do
Oh baby, all I want for Christmas is you

All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of childrens’
Laughter fills the air

And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won’t you bring me
The one I really need
Won’t you please bring my baby to me, quickly

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
This is all I’m asking for
I just wanna see my baby
Standing right outside my door

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby, all I want for Christmas is you
All I want for Christmas is you, baby.
.

6. Christmas You and Me – Brian Mcknight and Vince Gill
.

.
.

Christmas you and me
Its seven o clock and I’m on my way
Eating the miles down this highway
Say that you’ll wait for me
To light up the Christmas tree
Tell you the first thing that Imma do
Holding and squeezing and kissing you under the mistletoe.
Girl I’ve been missing you so
This is the first holiday we’ll spend every night I pray that it never ends
Feels like meant to be when I have you next to me
Can’t wait to have you to myself
Cuz I need you and no one else
There’s no place in this world I’d rather be
You’re the only present that I need
The perfect combination is Christmas You and Me
The perfect combination is Christmas you and me

Its 11 o’clock and I’m almost home
I’m just calling to let you know
Leave on the light for me
Soon we’ll make us some __
I saw Santa was on his way
I saw Rudolph pulling the sleigh
Donner and Blitzen too
He’s got some presents for you
This is the first holiday we’ll spend every night I pray that it never ends
Feels like meant to be when I have you next to me
Can’t wait to have you to myself
Cuz I need you and no one else
There’s no place in this world I’d rather be
You’re the only present that I need
The perfect combination is Christmas You and Me
The perfect combination is Christmas you and me

I hear sleigh bells ringing and carolers singing and smothered turkey’s that grandma’s bringing
I see children playing in the snow
Its Christmas time and I know well that when I see you I just might melt
If you don’t know by now you need to know
That I can’t wait to have you to myself
Cuz I need you and no one else
There’s no place in this world I’d rather be
You’re the only present that I need
The perfect combination is Christmas You and Me
The perfect combination is Christmas you and me

8. O Holy Night – Celtic Woman
.

.

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
‘Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices,
O night divine, o night when Christ was born,
O night divine, o night, o night divine.

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts, by His cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming
There came the wisemen from the Orient land.

The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials, born to be our friend.
Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices,
O night divine, o night when Christ was born,
O night divine, o night, o night divine.

Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices,
O night divine, o night when Christ was born,
O night divine, o night, o night divine.

(Huỳnh Huệ dịch từ Wikipedia)

Sau đây là tám bài hát trong số những top hits được yêu thích của họ mà Đình Nguyên  muốn tặng cho các fans của Backstreetboy, đặc biệt như một món quà  chúc mừng SN của Kitty


1. I WANT IT THAT WAY – Millennium (1999–2000)

Yeah…

You are my fire
The one desire
Believe when I say
I want it that way

But we are two worlds apart
Can’t reach to your heart
When you say
That I want it that way

[Chorus:]

Tell me why
Ain’t nothin’ but a heartache
Tell me why
Ain’t nothin’ but a mistake
Tell me why
I never wanna hear you say
I want it that way

Am I your fire
Your one desire
Yes I know it’s too late
But I want it that way

[Chorus]

Now I can see that we’re falling apart
From the way that it used to be, yeah
No matter the distance
I want you to know
That deep down inside of me…

You are my fire
The one desire
You are
You are, you are, you are

Don’t wanna hear you say
Ain’t nothin’ but a heartache
Ain’t nothin’ but a mistake
(Don’t wanna hear you say)
I never wanna hear you say
I want it that way

Tell me why
Ain’t nothin’ but a heartache
Tell me why
Ain’t nothin but a mistake
Tell me why
I never wanna hear you say
(Don’t wanna hear you say it)
I want it that way
I want it that way.

2. AS LONG AS YOU LOVE ME

Although loneliness has always been a friend of mine
I’m leavin’ my life in your hands
People say I’m crazy and that I am blind
Risking it all in a glance
And how you got me blind is still a mystery
I can’t get you out of my head
Don’t care what is written in your history
As long as you’re here with me

I don’t care who you are
Where you’re from
What you did
As long as you love me
Who you are
Where you’re from
Don’t care what you did
As long as you love me

Every little thing that you have said and done
Feels like it’s deep within me
Doesn’t really matter if you’re on the run
It seems like we’re meant to be

I don’t care who you are (who you are)
Where you’re from (where you’re from)
What you did
As long as you love me (I don’t know)
Who you are (who you are)
Where you’re from (where you’re from)
Don’t care what you did
As long as you love me (yeah)

I’ve tried to hide it so that no one knows
But I guess it shows
When you look into my eyes
What you did and where you’re comin from
I don’t care, as long as you love me, baby

I don’t care who you are (who you are)
Where you’re from (where you’re from)
What you did
As long as you love me (as long as you love me)
Who you are (who you are)
Where you’re from (where you’re from)
Don’t care what you did (yeah)
As long as you love me (as long as you love me)
Who you are (who you are)
Where you’re from
What you did
As long as you love me
Who you are (who you are)
Where you’re from (where you’re from)
As long as you love me
Who you are
As long as you love me
What you did (I don’t care)
As long as you love me

4. SHOW ME THE MEANING OF BEING LONELY – Millennium (1999–2000)

Show me the meaning of being lonely
So many words for the broken heart
It’s hard to see in a crimson love
So hard to breathe
Walk with me, and maybe
Nights of light so soon become
Wild and free I could feel the sun
Your every wish will be done
They tell me…

CHORUS
Show me the meaning of being lonely
Is this the feeling I need to walk with
Tell me why I can’t be there where you are
There’s something missing in my heart

Life goes on as it never end
Eyes of stone observe the trends
They never say forever gaze
Guilty roads to an endless love
There’s no control
Are you with me now
Your every wish will be done
They tell me

Show me the meaning of being lonely
Is this the feeling I need to walk with
Tell me why I can’t be there where you are
There’s something missing in my heart

There’s nowhere to run
I have no place to go
Surrender my heart’ body and soul
How can it be you’re asking me to feel the things you never show
You are missing in my heart
Tell me why I can’t be there where you are
repeat all

5. LARGER THAN LIFE – Millennium (1999–2000)

I may run and hide
When you’re screamin’ my name, alright
But let me tell you now
There are prices to fame, alright
All of our time spent in flashes of light

Chorus:
All you people can’t you see, can’t you see
How your love’s affecting our reality
Every time we’re down
You can make it right
And that makes you larger than life

Looking at the crowd
And I see your body sway, c’mon
Wishin’ I could thank you in a different way, c’mon
Coz’ all of your time spent keeps us alive

All you people can’t you see, can’t you see
How your love’s affecting our reality
Every time we’re down
You can make it right
And that makes you larger than life

All of your time spent keeps us alive

All you people can’t you see, can’t you see
How your love’s affecting our reality
Every time we’re down
You can make it right
And that makes you larger than life

Yeah, every time we’re down
Yeah, you can make it right
Yeah, and that’s what makes you larger than life

6. THE CALL – Black & Blue (2000-2001)

Spoken:
“Hello”
“Hi, it’s me. What’s up baby?
I’m sorry, listen, I’m gonna be late tonight so don’t stay up and wait for me, ok?”
“Where are you?”
“Say that again.”
“Hello”
“You’re really dropping out. I think my battery must be low.
Listen, if you can hear me, we’re going to a place nearby alright. Gotta go!”

Let me tell you the story ’bout the call that changed my destiny
Me and my boys went out just to end up in misery
Was about to go home when there she was standing in front of me
And said “Hi, I got a little place nearby, wanna go?”
I should’ve said no, someone’s waiting for me
But I called my girl up and said.

CHORUS:
Listen baby I’m sorry
Just wanna tell you don’t worry
I will be late, don’t stay up and wait for me
I said again you’re dropping out my battery is low
Just so you know, we’re going to a place nearby
Gotta go!

Now two years gone, nothing’s been won
I can’t take it back, what’s done is done
One of her friends found out that she wasn’t my only one
And it eats me from inside that she’s not by my side
Just because I made that call and lied

CHORUS:
Listen baby I’m sorry
Just wanna tell you don’t worry
I will be late, don’t stay up and wait for me
I said again you’re dropping out my battery is low
Just so you know, we’re going to a place nearby
Gotta go!

Listen baby I’m sorry (2x)

Gotta go

Ohhhh, ohhhh

Let me tell you the story ’bout the call that changed my destiny
Me and my boys went out just to end up in misery
Was about to go home when there she was standing there in front of me
And said “Hi, I got a little place nearby.”
Gotta go! oh oh oh

CHORUS:
Listen baby I’m sorry
Just wanna tell you don’t worry
I will be late, don’t stay up and wait for me
I said again you’re dropping out my battery is low
Just so you know, we’re going to a place nearby
Gotta go!

Listen baby I’m sorry
Just wanna tell you don’t worry
I will be late, don’t stay up and wait for me
I said again you’re dropping out my battery is low
Just so you know, we’re going to a place nearby
We’re going to a place nearby
Gotta go!

7. QUIT PLAYING GAMES — Backstreet’s Back

Even in my heart I see
You’re not bein’ true to me
Deep within my soul I feel
Nothing’s like it used to be
Sometimes I wish I could turn back time
Impossible as it may seem
But I wish I could so bad baby
Quit playin’ games with my heart

Chorus
Quit playin’ games with my heart
Before you tear us apart
I should’ve known from the start
Before you got in my heart
I live my life the way
To keep you comin’ back to me
Everything I do is for you
So what is it that you can’t see
Sometimes I wish I could
Turn back time, impossible as it may seem
But I wish I could so bad
You better quit playin’ games with my heart

Chorus

Quit playin’ games
Baby, baby the love that we had was so strong
Don’t leave me hangin’ here forever
Oh baby, baby this is not a lie, let’s stop this tonight

Baby, quit playin’ games
Sometimes I wish I could
Turn back time, impossible as it may seem
But I wish I could so bad, baby
Quit playin’ games with my heart

8. INCOMPLETE – Never gone (2005)

Empty spaces fill me up with holes
Distant faces with no place left to go
Without you within me I can’t find no rest
Where I’m going is anybody’s guess

I tried to go on like I never knew you
I’m awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I’m going to be is incomplete

Voices tell me I should carry on
But I am swimming in an ocean all alone
Baby, my baby
It’s written on your face
You still wonder if we made a big mistake

I tried to go on like I never knew you
I’m awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I’m going to be is incomplete

I don’t mean to drag it on, but I can’t seem to let you go
I don’t wanna make you face this world alone
I wanna let you go (alone)

I tried to go on like I never knew you
I’m awake but my world is half asleep
I pray for this heart to be unbroken
But without you all I’m going to be is incomplete

Incomplete

Tiền

Có một người đàn ông dành cả đời mình làm việc và dành dụm. Ông ấy là một kẻ thực sự keo kiệt mỗi khi nói về tiền bạc. Ông ấy yêu tiền hơn bất cứ thứ gì khác, và trước khi chết, ông ấy nói với vợ mình, “Hãy nghe anh, khi anh chết, anh muốn em cho hết tiền của anh vào quan tài. Anh muốn đem hết tiền của mình đến kiếp sau. “

Và ông ấy bắt vợ mình hứa chắc chắn rằng khi ông ấy chết, bà sẽ cho tất cả số tiền của ông ấy vào quan tài.

Và thế là, một ngày nọ ông ấy chết. Ông ấy được đặt nằm ngay ngắn trong quan tài, bà vợ đang ngồi kế bên người bạn thân nhất của bà trong bộ đồ tang màu đen. Khi họ đã hoàn tất phần nghi lễ, ngay trước khi người đưa đám chuẩn bị đóng quan tài, bà vợ nói “Chờ 1 tí!”

Bà ấy mang theo 1 cái hộp đựng giày và đặt nó vào bên trong quan tài. Sau đó người đưa đám đóng nắp quan tài và lăn nó xuống. Nguời bạn bà ấy nói, “Tôi hy vọng bạn không điên đến mức cho tất cả tiền vào quan tài.”

Bà vợ nói, “Ừ, tớ đã hứa. Tớ là một tín đồ cơ-đốc, tớ ko thể nói dối. Tớ đã hứa với anh ấy là tớ sẽ cho tất cả số tiền vào quan tài cùng anh ấy rồi.”

“Ý bạn là bạn định cho từng xu một vào quan tài cùng anh ấy ??”

“Tớ chắc chắn đã làm thế. Tớ cho tất cả số tiền vào tài khoản của mình rồi viết cho anh ấy 1 tờ séc.”

MONEY

There was a man who worked all of his life and saved all of his money. He was a real miser when it came to his money. He loved money more than just about anything, and just before he died, he said to his wife, “Now listen, when I die, I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. I wanna take my money to the afterlife.”

So he got his wife to promise him with all her heart that when he died, she would put all the money in the casket with him.

Well, one day he died. He was stretched out in the casket, the wife was sitting there in black next to her closest friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said “Wait just a minute!”

She had a shoe box with her, she came over with the box and placed it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down and rolled it away. Her friend said, “I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in the casket.”

“Yes,” the wife said, “I promised. I’m a good Christian, I can’t lie. I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him.”

“You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?”

“I sure did. I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a check.”

Enrique Iglesias và Can You Hear Me?

Enrique Miguel Iglesias y Preysler sinh ngày 8 tháng 5 năm 1975 tại thành phố Madrid, Tây Ban Nha trong một gia đình có truyền thống âm nhạc. Cha anh là Julio Iglesias, một ca sĩ Latin nổi tiếng từng bán được hơn 250 triệu album trên toàn thế giới. Mẹ anh là Isabel Preysler, một người Tây Ban Nha gốc Philippines được biết đến với vai trò là nhà báo, người mẫu và người dẫn chương trình truyền hình. Chị cả của anh, Chabeli Iglesias, nối nghiệp mẹ và trở thành một nhà báo tại Washington D.C. còn người anh thứ Julio Iglesias Jr. thì nối nghiệp cha để trở thành ca sĩ. Song sự nghiệp âm nhạc của Julio Iglesias Jr. lại không thành công bằng người em út Enrique Iglesias của mình.

Năm 1993, Enrique tốt nghiệp phổ thông trường Gulliver Preparatory và học tiếp đại học tại trường Đại học Miami theo ý nguyện của gia đình. Nhưng việc học của anh đã phải bỏ dỡ bởi Enrique đã quyết tâm dành hết cuộc đời của mình cho âm nhạc. Anh không hề muốn cha mình biết chuyện nên khi đăng ký thu âm demo cho các hãng đĩa, anh thường lấy tên là Enrique Martinez cho cùng họ với người quản lý Fernan Martinez của anh. Anh cũng không muốn sử dụng cái họ nổi tiếng đó làm đà cho sự nghiệp phát triển mà theo anh, cái quan trọng chính là nỗ lực bản thân. Chính nhờ sự nỗ lực không ngừng ấy, Enrique đã có được một hợp đồng thu âm với hãng đĩa Fonovisa và không lâu sau đó, anh được đưa đến Toronto, Canada để thực hiện album đầu tay. Điều đó có nghĩa là sự nghiệp âm nhạc của Enrique đã chính thức bắt đầu.

1995-1998: Thành công tại khu vực Mỹ Latin với các bài hát Si Tú Te Vas, Experiencia Religiosa, Por Amarte, No Llores Por Mí, Trapecista…….
1999-2003: Thành công trên toàn thế giới với các bài hát Rhythm Divine, Sad Eyes, You’re My Number 1, Could I Have This Kiss Forever, Hero, Bailamos…

Can You Hear Me là bài hát chính thức của Giải vô địch bóng đá châu Âu 2008 và đã được hát lại rất nhiều trong World Cup 2010, nhất là sau khi Tây Ban Nha đoạt cúp vô địch.

1. You’re My Number 1 ( with Valen Hsu

.

.
I’ve kissed the moon a million times
Danced with angels in the sky
I’ve seen snowfall in the summertime
Felt the healing of the powers above

I’ve seen the world from the highest mountain
Tasted love from the purest fountain
I’ve seen lips that spark desire
Felt the butterflies a hundred times

I’ve even seen miracles
I’ve felt the pain disappear
But still haven’t seen anything
That amazes me quite like you do

Chorus:
You bring me up when I’m feeling down
You touch me deep you touch me right
You do the things I’ve never done
You make me wicked you make me wild
‘Cause baby, your my #1

I’ve sailed in a perfect dream
I’ve seen the sun make love to the sea
I’ve kissed the moon a million times
Danced with angels in the sky

I’ve even seen miracles
I’ve seen the tears disappear
But still haven’t seen anything
That amazes me quite like you do

Chorus

Solo

Chorus

Esta Noche Bailamos
De Noite – da mi vida

Nothing can stop us tonight

I won’t be leaving your side
We’re going to dance through the night
I want to reach for the stars.
Chorus
Bailamos – let the rhythm take you over Bailamos
Te quiero amor mio – Bailamos

3. Why Not Me ( Nhạc mới năm 2010)

.
Escaping nights without you
with shadows on the wall
my mind is running wild
trying hard not to fall
you told me that you love me
but say I’m just a friend
my heart is broken up into pieces
cos I know
I’ll never free my soul
it’s trapped between true love and being alone
when my eyes are closed
the greatest story told
I woke and my dreams are shattered here on the floor

why oh why
tell me why not me
why oh why
we were meant to be
baby i know i could be all you need
why oh why oh why
I wanna love you
if you only knew how much I love you
so why not me

the day after tomorrow
I’ll still be around
to catch you when you fall
and never let you down
you say that we’re forever
our love will never end
I’ve tried to come up
but it’s drowning me to know
you’ll never free my soul
it’s trapped in between true love and being alone
when my eyes are closed
the greatest story told
I woke and my dreams are shattered here on the floor

Tell me baby
why oh why
tell me why not me
why oh why
we were meant to be
baby i know I could be all you need
why oh why oh why
I wanna love you
if you only knew how much I love you
so why not me

you won’t ever know
how far we can go
you won’t ever know
how far we can go (go)

why oh why
tell me why not me
why oh why
we were meant to be
baby I know I could be all you need
why oh why oh why

why oh why
tell me why not me
why oh why
we were meant to be
baby I know i could be all you need
why oh why oh why oh why
I wanna love you

so why not me

4. Hero
.


.

(Whispered) Let me be your hero

Would you dance if I asked you to dance?
Would you run and never look back
Would you cry if you saw me crying
Would you save my soul tonight?

Would you tremble if I touched your lips?
Would you laugh oh please tell me these
Now would you die for the one you love?
Hold me in your arms tonight?

(Chorus)
I can be you hero baby
I can kiss away the pain
I will stand by you forever
You can take my breath away

Would you swear that you’ll always be mine?
Would you lie would you run away
Am I in to deep?
Have I lost my mind?
I don’t care you’re here tonight

Chorus

I just want to hold you (2x)
Am I in too deep?
Have I lost my mind?
Well I don’t care you’re here tonight

Chorus (2x)

5. Lost Inside Your Love

.

I could never miss your love
As warm as a Miami day
I could never get enough
Wetter than an ocean wave

Now one is the key, two is the door
Three is the path that will lead us to four
Five is the time you kidnap my mind
Into ecstasy

I’m lost inside your love
Believe me
And if I don’t come up
Then leave me
Inside your love forever

Lost inside your love
When the two of us are one
There’s no place I’d rather be, oh no
I’m disappearing in your love
Wilder than my wildest dreams, oh yeah

Now one is the key, two is the door
Three is the path that will lead us to four
Five is the time you kidnap my mind
Into ecstasy

I’m lost inside your love
Believe me
And if I don’t come up
Then leave me
Inside your love forever
Lost inside your love

Over and over, you know what I need
..
I see over and over you keep taking me
A little bit too far
A little bit too deep

Lost inside your love
Believe me
And if I don’t come up
Then leave me
Inside your love forever
Lost inside your love
I’m lost inside your love
Believe me
And if I don’t come up
Then leave me
Inside your love forever
Lost inside your love

Con người sống cộng đồng và luôn coi trọng giá trị của tình bạn trong cuộc sống. Để  tôn vinh cảm xúc cao đẹp này, mọi người đều cho rằng cần phải có một ngày dành cho bạn bè và tình bạn. Vì thế, năm 1935, ngày chủ nhật đầu tiên của tháng 8 được Quốc Hội  Mỹ tuyên bố như là một ngày lễ ở Mỹ để tôn vinh tình bạn. Kể từ đó, NGÀY  LỄ TÌNH BẠN được tổ chức mỗi năm vào chủ nhật đầu tiên của tháng 8.

Ý tưởng tốt đẹp này đã được hoan nghênh bởi nhiều nước trên toàn thế giới. Và ngày nay, có rất nhiều nước trên toàn thế giới, gồm cả Ấn Độ, tổ chức ngày lễ tình bạn vào chủ nhật đầu tiên của tháng 8. Khi kỷ niệm ngày lễ tình bạn theo cách truyền thống, mọi người gặp bạn bè và trao đổi thiệp, hoa để tôn vinh tình bạn. Nhiều tổ chức xã hội và văn hóa cũng kỉ niệm ngày lễ này và ghi dấu ngày lễ tình bạn bằng cách tổ chức các chương trình các buổi gặp mặt nhau.

WHO DON’T HAVE FRIENDS ?

Human beings are social creatures and have always valued the importance of friends in their lives. To celebrate this noble feeling it was deemed fit to have a day dedicated to friends and friendship. Accordingly, first Sunday of August was declared as a holiday in US in honor of friends by a Proclamation made by US Congress in 1935. Since then, World Friendship Day is being celebrated every year on the first Sunday in the month of August.

This beautiful idea of celebrating Friendship Day was joyfully accepted by several other countries across the world. And today, many countries including India, celebrate the first Sunday of August as Friendship Day every year. Celebrating Friendship Day in a traditional manner, people meet their friends and exchange cards and flowers to honor their friends.  Many social and cultural organizations also celebrate the occasion and mark Friendship Day by hosting programs and get together.

[Rihanna:]

You have my heart
And we’ll never be worlds apart
May be in magazines
But you’ll still be my star
Baby cause in the dark
You can’t see shiny cars
And that’s when you need me there
With you I’ll always share
Because

[Chorus:]
When there’s sunshine, we’ll shine together
Told you I’ll be here forever
Said I’ll always be a friend
Took an oath I’ma stick it out till the end
Now that it’s raining more than ever
Know that we’ll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh )

When the world has dealt it’s cards
If the hand is hard, together we’ll mend your heart
Because

When there’s sunshine, we’ll shine together

2.PUT YOUR RECORDS ONCorinne Bailey Rae

.

Three little birds, sat on my window.
And they told me I don’t need to worry.
Summer came like cinnamon
So sweet,
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.

Maybe sometimes, we\’ve got it wrong, but it’s alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, don’t you hesitate.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

Blue as the sky, sun burnt and lonely,
Sipping tea in the bar by the roadside,
(just relax, just relax)
Don’t you let those other boys fool you,
Got to love that afro hair do.

Maybe sometimes, we feel afraid, but it’s alright
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change.
Don’t you think it’s strange?

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

Just more than I could take, pity for pity’s sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realize, that you don’t even have to try any longer?
Do what you want to.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favorite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Oh, you\’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

Sometimes You Think You’ll Be Fine By Yourself,
‘Cuz A Dream Is A Wish That You Make All Alone.
It’s Easy To Feel Like You Don’t Need Help,
But it’s Harder To Walk On Your Own.

If you’re lonely
And need a friend
And troubles seem like
They never end
Just remember to keep the faith
And love will be there to light the way

Anytime you need a friend

You’ll never be alone again

Even if you’re miles away
I’m by your side
So don’t you ever be lonely
Love will make it alright

When the shadows are closing in
And your spirit diminishing
Just remember you’re not alone
And love will be there
To guide you home

Anytime you need a friend

You’ll never be alone again
So don’t you fear
Even if you’re miles away
I’m by your side
So don’t you ever be lonely
Love will make it alright

If you just believe in me
I will love you endlessly
Take my hand
Take me into your heart
I’ll be there forever baby

6. BECAUSE YOU LOVED ME Celine Dion

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ji-GONSfwnE

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I’ll be forever thankful baby
You’re the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You’re the one who saw me through through it all

Chorus :
You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I’m grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don’t know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you

[Chorus]

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

[Chorus]

7.   SONG FOR A FRIENDJASON MRAZ

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYb9OzzOiVw&feature=related

Well you’re magic he said
But don’t let it all go to your head
Well I bet if you all had it all figured out
Then you’d never get out of bed
No doubt
All the thing’s that I’ve read what he wrote me
Is now sounding like the man I was hoping
To be
Keep on keeping it real
Cause it keeps getting easier indeed
He’s the reason that I’m laughing
Even if there’s no one else
He said, you’ve got to love yourself

You say, you shouldn’t mumble when you speak
But keep your tongue up in your cheek
And if you stumble on to
You better remember that it’s humble that you seek
You got all the skill you need,
Individuality
You got something
Call it gumption
Call it anything you want
Because when you play the fool now
You’re only fooling everyone else
You’re learning to love yourself

Yes you are

There’s no price to pay
When you give and what you take,
That’s why it’s easy to thank you
You…

Let’s say take a break from the day
And get back to the old garage
Because life’s too short anyway
But at least it’s better then average
As long as you got me
And I got you
You know we’ll got a lot to go around
I’ll be your friend
Your other brother
Another love to come and comfort you
And I’ll keep reminding
If it’s the only thing I ever do
I will always love
I will always love you
Yes you
I will always, always, always, always love
I will always, always love
I will always, always love, love

1. (Everything I Do) I Do It For You- Bryan Adams

Look into my eyes – you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart – search your soul
And when you find me there you’ll search no more
Don’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
You can’t tell me it’s not worth dyin’ for
You know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

Look into my heart – you will find
There’s nothin’ there to hide
Take me as I am – take my life
I would give it all I would sacrifice
Don’t tell me it’s not worth fightin’ for
I can’t help it there’s nothin’ I want more
Ya know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

There’s no love – like your love
And no other – could give more love
There’s nowhere – unless you’re there
All the time – all the way

Don’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
I can’t help it there’s nothin’ I want more
I would fight for you – I’d lie for you
Walk the wire for you – ya I’d die for you

Ya know it’s true
Everything I do – I do it for you

2. All For Love- Adams, Stewart & Sting

When it’s love you give
(I’ll be a man of good faith.)
Then in love you live.
(I’ll make a stand. I won’t break.)
I’ll be the rock you can build on,
Be there when you’re old,
To have and to hold.

When there’s love inside
(I swear I’ll always be strong.)
Then there’s a reason why.
(I’ll prove to you we belong.)
I’ll be the war that protects you
From the wind and the rain,
From the hurt and pain.

Let’s make it all for one and all for love.
Let the one you hold be the one you want,
The one you need,
‘Cause when it’s all for one it\’s one for all.
When there’s someone that should know
Then just let your feelings show
And make it all for one and all for love.

When it’s love you make
(I’ll be the fire in your night.)
Then it’s love you take.
(I will defend, I will fight.)
I’ll be there when you need me.
When honor’s at stake,
This vow I will make:

That it’s all for one and all for love.
Let the one be the one you want,
The one you need,
‘Cause when it’s all for one it’s one for all.
When there’s someone that should know
Then just let your feelings show
And make it all for one and all for love.

Don’t lay our love to rest
‘Cause we could stand up to you test.
We got everything and more than we had planned,
More than the rivers that run the land.
We’ve got it all in our hands.

Now it’s all for one and all for love.
(It’s all for love.)
Let the one you hold be the one you want,
The one you need,
‘Cause when it’s all for one it’s one for all.
(It’s one for all.)
When there’s someone that should know
Then just let your feelings show.
When there’s someone that you want,
When there’s someone that you need
Let’s make it all, all for one and all for love.

3. Here I Am – Bryan Adams

Here I am – This is me
There’s nowhere else on earth I’d rather be
Here I am
It’s just me and you
Tonight we make our dreams come true

It’s a new world
It’s a new start
It’s alive with the beating of young hearts
It’s a new day
It’s a new plan
I’ve been waiting for you
Here I am

Here we are
We’ve just begun
And after all this time
Our time has come
Yeah here we are
Still goin’ strong
Right here in the place where we belong

Oh it’s a new world
It’s a new start
It’s alive with the beating of young hearts
It’s a new day
And a new plan
I’ve been waiting for you
Here I am

Here I am
Yeah

(Waiting, waiting waiting)
Here I am

Here I am
Right next to you
Suddenly the world is all brand new
Here I am
Here I am
Where I’m gonna stay
Now there’s nothin’ standing in our way
Here I am
This is me

4. Heaven – Bryan Adams

Oh – thinkin’ about all our younger years
There was only you and me
We were young and wild and free

Now nothin’ can take you away from me
We bin down that road before
But that’s over now
You keep me comin’ back for more

Baby you’re all that I want
When you’re lyin’ here in my arms
I’m findin’ it hard to believe
We’re in heaven
And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn’t too hard to see
We’re in heaven

Oh – once in your life you find someone
Who will turn your world around
Bring you up when you’re feelin’ down

Ya – nothin’ could change what you mean to me
Oh there’s lots that I could say
But just hold me now
Cause our love will light the way

N’ baby you’re all that I want
When you’re lyin’ here in my arms
I’m findin’ it hard to believe
We’re in heaven
And love is all that I need
And I found it there in your heart
It isn’t too hard to see
We’re in heaven

I’ve bin waitin’ for so long
For something to arrive
For love to come along

Now our dreams are comin’ true
Through the good times and the bad
Ya – I’ll be standin’ there by you

Nghỉ Lấy Sức

Chúng ta có thể có một khởi đầu tươi sáng
bất kỳ lúc nào chúng ta muốn
bởi cái gọi là thất bại không đồng nghĩa với sự gục ngã,
mà chỉ là lúc chúng ta nghỉ lấy sức mà thôi.

You may have a fresh start any moment you choose,

Đừng Bỏ Cuộc

Need You Know và ban nhạc Lady Antebellum

Hôm nay Góc Âm Nhạc Ban Mai Hồng giới thiệu với các bạn nhóm nhac tam ca Lady Antebellum, có thể còn mới mẽ với một số các anh chị yêu nhạc đồng quê (country  music)  vì tên tuổi của họ chưa nổi  bằng Carrie Underwood hay Taylor Swift. Nhóm nhạc với 2 thành viên nam và 1 thành viên nữ này được biết đến như là một thế hệ mới của làng nhạc đồng quê thế giới. 

Ấy thế mà Lady Antebellum đã gây bất ngờ tại giải âm nhạc đồng quê năm nay ( 2010 Academy of Country MusicAwards) khi họ dẫn đầu danh sách đề cử năm nay với 7 đề cử và 3 giải thưởng. Đó là: Ca Khúc Của Năm, Đĩa Đơn Của Năm với “Need You Now“, và  Nhóm Nhạc của năm.

Xuất hiện lần đầu tiên vào năm 2007 trong ca khúc Never Alone của Jim Brickman, Lady Antebellum là nhóm nhạc gồm ba thành viên: Dave Haywood chơi piano, guitar còn Charles Kelley và Hillary Scott thay nhau hát chính. Không như những nàng công chúa nhạc đồng quê thường thấy với vẻ điệu đàng trong lụa là, giọng nữ duy nhất của nhóm Hillary Scott có một phong cách rất tự tin, năng động và thoải mái.

Nổi tiếng từ album đầu tay, âm nhạc của Lady Antebellum là sự hòa trộn giữa chất country đương đại với những giai điệu R&B và soul những thập niên 60 tạo nên những âm hưởng hài hòa dễ nghe. Lady Antebellum được xem là ban nhạc của mọi người, fan của họ có thể là đứa trẻ lên 10, cũng có thể là bà ngoại đã… 80.

Từ những buổi hát quán bar bình dân, Lady Antebellum giờ đây đã có những chuyến lưu diễn hoành tráng trên khắp thế giới với những nghệ sĩ nổi tiếng như Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, Phil Vassar.

Need You Now mang âm hưởng tuyệt vời của chất liệu nhạc đồng quê. Giai điệu  nhẹ nhàng, ca từ giản dị mà dạt dào cảm xúc,  như hơi thở của cuộc sống về hương vị của tình yêu muôn thuở.   Anh cần em biết ……

Và  với ca khúc này, tháng 4 vừa qua  Lady Antebellum vừa đoạt được những giải thưởng danh giá nhất mà giới nghệ sĩ nào cũng mơ ước.

Bài  1 :    Need You Know

Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor
Reachin’ for the phone ’cause I can’t fight it anymore
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now
Said I wouldn’t call but I lost all control and I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without
I just need you now

Another shot of whiskey can’t stop looking at the door
Wishing you’d come sweeping in the way you did before
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It’s a quarter after one, I’m a little drunk and I need you now
Said I wouldn’t call but I lost all control and I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without
I just need you now
woah woaaah.
Guess I’d rather hurt than feel nothin’ at all
It’s a quarter after one I’m all alone and I need you now
And I said I wouldn’t call but I’m a little drunk and I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without
I just need you now
I just need you now
Ooo, baby, I need you now

Bài 2/ Home Is Where The Heart Is

I felt I was spinning my wheels
Before too long the road was calling
I packed everything I own
So sure that I was leaving this small town life behind for good
And not a single tear was falling
It took leaving for me to understand
Sometimes your dreams just aren’t what life has planned

[Chorus]
Mama said home is where the heart is
When I left that town
I made it all the way to West Virginia
And that’s where my heart found
Exactly where I’m supposed to be
It didn’t take much time
It’s just south of the Mason Dixon Line
It’s just south of the Mason Dixon Line

I worked third shift at an all night diner
Only stayed to save a little money for
Enough gas to make it to the east coast
That’s when I saw the brightest pair of
Deep blue eyes walking straight into my life
And every night we talked till it became so clear
And I could feel those dreams inside shifting gears
Cause love brought me here

[Repeat Chorus]

Bài 3 . Never Alone – Lady Antebellum with  Jim Brickman

May the angels protect you
Trouble neglect you
And heaven accept you when its time to go home
May you always have plenty
The glass never empty
Know in your belly
You’re never alone

May your tears come from laughing
You find friends worth having
As every year passes
They mean more than gold
May you win and stay humble
Smile more than grumble
And know when you stumble
You’re never alone

Chorus: Never alone
Never alone
I¹ll be in every beat of your heart
When you face the unknown
Wherever you fly
This isn’t goodbye
My love will follow you stay with you
Baby you’re never alone

I have to be honest
As much as I wanted
I’m not gonna promise that cold winds won’t blow
So when hard times have found you
And your fears surround you
Wrap my love around you
You’re never alone

My love will follow you stay with you
Baby you’re never alone
So when hard times have found you
And your fears surround you
Wrap my love around you
You’re never alone
