Frei zu sein bedeutet nicht nur, seine eigenen Fesseln zu lösen, sondern ein Leben zu führen, das auch die Freiheit anderer respektiert und fördert. ~ Nelson Mandela



17. Türchen – Musik für Weihnachten

Es gibt so viele tolle Weihnachtslieder – und doch läuft überall gefühlt nur ein Lied: Last Christmas von Wham!. Wem dieses Lied auf den Keks geht, für den hab ich heute drei alternative Weihnachts- bzw. Winterlieder herausgesucht.
Hoffentlich gefallen sie euch so gut wie mir :)






Das erste ist für alle, die den Winter vermissen:



Joshua Radin – Winter


I should know who I am by now
I walk the record stand somehow
Thinkin' of winter
The name is the splinter inside me
While I wait

And I remember the sound
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
A warm December with you

But I don't have to make this mistake
And I don't have to stay this way
If only I would wake

The walk has all been cleared by now
Your voice is all I hear somehow
Calling out winter
Your voice is the splinter inside me
While I wait

And I remember the sound
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
A warm December with you
But I don't have to make this mistake
And I don't have to stay this way
If only I would wake

I could have lost myself
In rough blue waters in your eyes
And I miss you still

Oh I remember the sound
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
A warm December with you
But I don't have to make this mistake
And I don't have to stay this way
If only I would wake


Das nächste ist für alle, die finden, dass zu viel Rummel um Weihnachten gemacht wird:



Tim Minchin – White wine in the sun


I really like Christmas
It's sentimental, I know, but I just really like it
I am hardly religious
I'd rather break bread with Dawkins than Desmond Tutu, to be honest

And yes, I have all of the usual objections
To consumerism, he commercialisation of an ancient religion
To the westernisation of a dead Palestinian
Press-ganged into selling Playstations and beer
But I still really like it

I'm looking forward to Christmas
Though I'm not expecting a visit from Jesus

I'll be seeing my dad
My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum
They'll be drinking white wine in the sun
I'll be seeing my dad
My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum
They'll be drinking white wine in the sun

I don't go in for ancient wisdom
I don't believe just 'cos ideas are tenacious it means they are worthy
I get freaked out by churches
Some of the hymns that they sing have nice chords but the lyrics are spooky

And yes I have all of the usual objections
To the miseducation of children who, in tax-exempt institutions,
Are taught to externalise blame
And to feel ashamed and to judge things as plain right and wrong
But I quite like the songs

I'm not expecting big presents
The old combination of socks, jocks and chocolate is just fine by me

Cos I'll be seeing my dad
My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum
They'll be drinking white wine in the sun
I'll be seeing my dad
My brother and sisters, my gran and my mum
They'll be drinking white wine in the sun

And you, my baby girl
My jetlagged infant daughter
You'll be handed round the room
Like a puppy at a primary school
And you won't understand
But you will learn someday
That wherever you are and whatever you face
These are the people who'll make you feel safe in this world
My sweet blue-eyed girl

And if, my baby girl
When you're twenty-one or thirty-one
And Christmas comes around
And you find yourself nine thousand miles from home
You'll know what ever comes
Your brother and sisters and me and your Mum
Will be waiting for you in the sun
Whenever you come
Your brothers and sisters, your aunts and your uncles
Your grandparents, cousins and me and your mum
We'll be waiting for you in the sun
Drinking white wine in the sun
Darling, when Christmas comes
We'll be waiting for you in the sun
Drinking white wine in the sun
Waiting for you in the sun
Waiting for you...
Waiting...

I really like Christmas
It's sentimental, I know...



Das letzte ist für die, die mit Weihnachten verschiedene Dinge verknüpfen:



Stevie Wonder – What christmas means to me


 Oh yeah
Candles burnin' low
Lots of mistletoe
Lots of snow and ice
Everywhere we go
Choirs singin' carols
Right outside my door

All these things and more
(All these things and more)
Whoa, that's what Christmas means to me my love
(That's what Christmas means to me my love)
Whoa, yeah
Ha ha, yeah

And ya know what I mean
I see your smilin' face
Like I never seen before
Even though I love ya madly
It seems I love you more
The little cards you'll give me
Will touch my heart for sure

All these things and more, darling
(All these things and more)
Whoa, that's what Christmas means to me my love
(That's what Christmas means to me my love)

Oh yeah, I
I feel like runnin' wild (runnin' wild)
As anxious as a little child
To greet you 'neath the mistletoe
Kiss you once and then some more
And wish you a Merry Christmas baby
(Wish you a Merry Christmas baby)
Whoa, and such happiness in the comin' year
Oh baby (happiness in the comin' year)

Let's deck the halls with holly
Sing sweet silent night
Fill the tree with angel hair
And pretty, pretty lights
Go to sleep and wake up
Just before daylight

And all these things and more, baby
(All these things and more)
Whoa, that's what Chrismas means to me my love
(That's what Christmas means to me my love)
Oh baby, baby

Yeah
(Candles burnin' low)
(Lots and lots of snow)
Alright
(Christmas bells are ringin')
(Christmas choirs singin')
Whoo
(Christmas mistletoe...)
