Perry Como’s ‘ Accentuate The Positive’ lyrics sample -

( ac-cent-thu-ate the positive,
E-lim-inate the negative,
Ac-cent-thu-ate the positive, an latch on! )

You gotta accent-thu-ate the positive,
E-lim-inate the negative,
An latch on,
To the affirmative.
Don't mess with mister in-between!

You gotta spread joy up to the maximum,
Bring gloom down to the minimum,
An have faith ( amen! )
Or pandemoniums,
Liable to walk upon the scene!

To illustrate,
My last remark,
Jonah in the whale!
Noah in the ark!
An what did they do ( what did they do? )
Just when everything looked so dark?

( what did they, what did they, what did they do? )

Man! they said,
You better accent-thu-ate the positive,
E-lim-inate the negative,
An latch on,
To the affirmative.
Don't mess with mister in-between!
No, don't mess with mister in-between!

Bobby McFerrin’s ‘Don't Worry, Be Happy’ lyrics sample -

Here's a little song I wrote,
You might want to sing it note for note,
Don't worry be happy.
In every life we have some trouble,
When you worry you make it double,
Don't worry, be happy!

...

Ain't got no place to lay your head,
Somebody came and took your bed,
Don't worry, be happy.
The landlord say your rent is late.
He may have to litigate.
Don't worry, be happy.
(Look at me I am happy)

...

Ain't got no cash, ain't got no style.
Ain't got no girl to make you smile.
But don't worry be happy.
'Cause when you worry,
Your face will frown,
And that will bring everybody down.
So don't worry, be happy.
Don't worry, be happy now.

...

Etc

Barbra Streisand’s ‘Happy Days Are Here Again’ lyrics sample -

So long sad times.
Go long bad times.
We are rid of you at last.
Howdy gay times.
Cloudy gray times,
You are now a thing of the past.

Happy days are here again.
The skies above are clear again.
So let's sing a song of cheer again.
Happy days are here again.

Altogether shout it now.
There's no one,
Who can doubt it now.
So let's tell the world about it now.
Happy days are here again.

Your cares and troubles are gone.
There'll be no more from now on.
From now on...

Happy days are here again.
The skies above are here again.
So, let's sing a song of cheer again.
Happy times,
Happy nights,
Happy days,
Are here again!

-----------

Tony Bennett’s ‘Put On A Happy Face’ lyrics sample –

Gray skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.

Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy,
It's not your style;
You'll look so good that you'll be glad,
Ya' decide to smile!

Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Stick out that noble chin;
Wipe off that ‘full of doubt’ look,
Slap on a happy grin!

And spread sunshine all over the place,
Just put on a happy face!
Put on a happy face.
Put on a happy face.

etc

-----------

Judy Garland ‘Smile’ lyrics sample –

Smile though your heart is aching.
Smile, even though it's breaking.
When there are clouds, in the sky, you'll get by.
If you smile, through your fear and sorrow,
Smile, and there'll be tomorrow.
You'll see the sun come shining through,
If you'll....
Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness,
Although a tear, may be ever so near,
That's the time, you must keep on trying.

Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you'll just....
Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness,
Although a tear, may be ever so near,
That's the time, you must keep on trying.
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you'll just....
Smile!

[Quote No.51529] Need Area: Fun > Music
"[Music is powerful and mood-altering:] You know it the second you hear the first notes. It’s that one special song that makes your spine tingle. You can feel the tears welling up in your eyes. How does that happen? Only seven notes can come together to form a soul-moving melody that can break your heart, make you cry, and bring back buried, long-forgotten memories. Music is powerful. --1. Music helps you work through your problems: Often during your darkest nights, you can’t find a way through the muddy alleyways of your mind. Good news! Don’t just lie there, turn on Google play and let the music flow into you. If you cry, that’s OK. Tears represent feelings that must be expressed. Feeling is healing. Music helps you express your emotions. It’s melodic encouragement that helps you let go of suppressed feelings. A study published in the British Journal showed that music is cathartic, especially drumming. You didn’t need a medical study to prove that. You discovered that yourself when you were a 4 year-old banging on your mother’s pots and pans. --2. Music inspires creativity: Do you need to write a blog, run faster on the treadmill, or design a new website but can’t because you’re feeling uninspired? Pump up the jam. Music will motivate you. Go ahead, try to sit still while listening to Avicii sing ‘Wake Me Up’, it’s just not possible. Finnish researchers found that the mind-wandering mode goes into action when your brain processes a song, thus inspiring creativity. These rewards don’t only happen to artists: Techies also benefit from the relaxing effect of music. Professor Gold (one of the Finnish researchers) who conducted the study said, ‘Our trial has shown that music therapy, when added to standard care including medication, psychotherapy and counseling, helps people to improve their levels of depression and anxiety. Music therapy has specific qualities that allow people to express themselves and interact in a non-verbal way – even in situations when they cannot find the words to describe their inner experiences.’ --3. Music affects your breathing: Music has the power to speed up your heartbeats or slow down your breathing. Musicians beware! You respond differently than the rest of us. Anyone can feel the music. Your foot starts tapping as your body sways from side to side. Who hasn’t been to a concert when you felt the bass beating in your chest? There is scientific proof behind it. A slow, meditative tempo has a relaxing effect slowing your heart rate and breathing while faster music with an upbeat tempo speeds up your heart rate and respiration. You are can be in charge of your body, simply by choosing which songs you listen to. Next time you’re feeling anxious, when your heart starts to race, grab your headset and listen to Zen Garden. --4. Music can reduce blood pressure: Here’s the prescription: Listen to classical, Celtic or reggae music 30 minutes a day to lower your blood pressure. According to the American Society of Hypertension, research shows this simple prescription might significantly reduce high blood pressure. In a report from Dr. Peter Sleight at the University of Oxford, research has shown ‘music can alleviate stress, improve athletic performance, improve movement in neurologically impaired patients with stroke or Parkinson’s disease, and even boost milk production in cattle.’ Don’t throw away your medication yet, but music is certainly an easier pill to take. --5. Music is used to treat addiction: Music therapy can be of great value in treating addiction. It is certainly not enough by itself to help someone recover from substance abuse, but it can be a useful tool in the treatment process. Addiction is a painful disease that affects the entire family and circle of friends. Making the decision to enter rehab is the first step towards recovery. Help is available and new methods of treatment are continually being discovered. Thamkrabok is a Buddhist temple in Thailand offering free treatment to for addiction. Music plays an important role at the temple because of its therapeutic powers. The monks of Thamkrabok even have their own recording studio. Tim Arnold, the UK musician made a whole album there. Sobriety is an emotional roller coaster. Music (either playing it or listening to it) may help people get rid of some of their destructive emotions. --6. Music might prevent suicide: The sound of music is incredibly powerful. It can even prevent suicide. IN 1997, DMC aka Darrell McDaniels, of Run DMC, was at the top of the charts. While touring he fell into a negative downward spiral, thinking Is this all there is? He was serious. At that moment, he made a decision to commit suicide when he got home. Staring at the walls in a cold hotel room, Sarah McLachlan’s song ‘Angel’ came on the radio. You know it’s power. It makes you cry and want to run out and adopt one of those sad animals in the SPCA commercial. It’s hard to believe, but that song changed his suicide plan. He became a huge fan of Sarah McLachlan. Soon after, he found out he was adopted, which gave his life new meaning. After DMC trashed his suicide plan, he made a new plan to use his music and fame to decide to promote adoption and help foster kids. He even made a documentary to promote his worthy cause. --7. Music in the operating room: Did you know doctors have a specific playlist for different types of surgery? Anthony Youn, M.D. cites a study published in ‘Surgical Endoscopy’ that found classical music affected surgeons more positively than hard rock or heavy metal. Oddly, another study published by ‘Surgical Innovation’ noted surgeons’ performances benefitted most from hip-hop and reggae the music. Go figure! Dr. Youn says, ‘It probably comes down to taste, with surgeons finding comfort and inspiration working to the music they like to hear.’ Doctors aren’t the only ones affected. Several studies show that patients appear more relaxed, require less anesthesia, and recover quicker when physicians play tunes in the OR. Nearly 80% of operating room support staff believed music had a positive effect on their work as well. I wonder if the remaining 20% wear noise-cancelling headphones. Who knows what the future of the OR will bring? Maybe there’ll be a DJ taking requests for your favorite spins. --8. Music reduces pain: Whether it’s Sam Smith, Lady Gaga, or Jason Mraz, the lyrics and melodies they write and sing can be effective therapy for managing pain. According to a paper in the UK-based Journal of Advanced Nursing, listening to music can reduce chronic pain from a range of painful conditions, including osteoarthritis, disc problems and rheumatoid arthritis, by up to 21%. That’s a lot when you’re hurting. Music is a distraction that gives the patient a sense of control. Music causes the body to release endorphins, which counteract pain. --9. Music jars your memory: Beware: Handle music with care. Some songs put you in a time machine and set you back to painful times. Hopefully, when you get there, you will remember the lessons you learned, see how much you have grown and how much better you are doing since leaving those sad times behind you. Leaving those memories allows you to open your heart to new adventures. So next time you make your playlist, choose carefully, those songs are going deep into your soul. They might inspire you to create a new start-up, stop drinking so much, become a triathete, or fall in love. There’s no doubt about it. Those seven notes can change your life. " - June Silny

[Quote No.51530] Need Area: Fun > Music
"This comprehensive review compiles and evaluates the evidence found in 200 studies on the benefits of music including singing and its capability to significantly improve psychological health and wellbeing through the engagement of neurochemical systems responsible for reward, motivation, pleasure, stress/arousal, immunity, and social affiliation... --Listening to preferred music stimulates the release of dopamine (the brain neurochemical responsible for pleasure and reward), reducing the use of opiate drugs in postoperative pain; --Singing can increase levels of Immunoglobulin A and decrease levels of stress; --Singing increases levels of oxytocin promoting social affiliation; --Music is shown to modify and regulate automatic systems such as: heart rate, respiration rate, perspiration and other automatic systems.

[Quote No.51941] Need Area: Fun > Music
"Music has been used as a healing force for centuries. Apollo is the ancient Greek god of music and of medicine. Aesculapius was said to cure diseases of the mind by using song and music, and music therapy was used in Egyptian temples. Plato said that music affected the emotions and could influence the character of an individual. Aristotle taught that music affects the soul and described music as a force that purified the emotions. Aulus Cornelius Celsus advocated the sound of cymbals and running water for the treatment of mental disorders. Music therapy was practiced in biblical times, when David played the harp to rid King Saul of a bad spirit. As early as 400 B.C., Hippocrates played music for mental patients. In the thirteenth century, Arab hospitals contained music-rooms for the benefit of the patients. In the United States, Native American medicine men often employed chants and dances as a method of healing patients. The Turco-Persian psychologist and music theorist al-Farabi (872–950), known as Alpharabius in Europe, dealt with music therapy in his treatise Meanings of the Intellect, in which he discussed the therapeutic effects of music on the soul. Robert Burton wrote in the 17th century in his classic work, 'The Anatomy of Melancholy,' that music and dance were critical in treating mental illness, especially melancholia [i.e. depression]. Music therapy as we know it began in the aftermath of World Wars I and II, when, particularly in the United Kingdom, musicians would travel to hospitals and play music for soldiers suffering from war-related emotional and physical trauma." - wikipedia.org

"According to Daniel Levitin, the experience of listening to music starts inside the womb when the fetus, surrounded by amniotic fluid, hears sounds. It hears the mother’s heartbeat speed up and slow down, as well as music, conversations, and environmental noises. Alexandra Lamont of Keele University in the UK established that the fetus hears music. She discovered that at the age of one children recognize and express a preference for music they were exposed to in the womb. The auditory system of the fetus is fully functional at about twenty weeks after conception." - wikipedia.org

[Quote No.51944] Need Area: Fun > Music
"On average, American adolescents [in 2007] listen to approximately 4.5 hours of music per day and are responsible for 70% of pop music sales. Now, with the invention of new technologies such as the iPod and digital downloads, access to music has become easier than ever. As children make the transition into adolescence they become less likely to sit and watch TV, an activity associated with family, and spend more of their leisure time listening to music, an activity associated with friends.[1] Adolescents obtain many benefits from listening to music, including emotional, social, and daily life benefits, along with help in forming their identity. Music can provide a sense of independence and individuality, which in turn contributes to an adolescent's self-discovery and sense of identity. Music also offers adolescents relatable messages that allow them to take comfort in knowing that others feel the same way they do. It can also serve as a creative outlet to release or control emotions and find ways of coping with difficult situations. Music can improve an adolescent's mood by reducing stress and lowering anxiety levels, which can help counteract or prevent depression.[2] Music education programs provide adolescents with a safe place to express themselves and learn life skills such as self-discipline, diligence, and patience. These programs also promote confidence and self-esteem. Ethnomusicologist Alan Merriam (1964) once stated that music is a universal behavior – it is something with which everyone can identify. Among adolescents, music is a unifying force, bringing people of different backgrounds, age groups, and social groups together. " - wikipedia.org

[Quote No.51945] Need Area: Fun > Music
"Music has been shown to consistently elicit emotional responses in its listeners, and this relationship between human affect and music and been studied in depth.[1] This includes isolating which specific features of a musical work or performance convey or elicit certain reactions, the nature of the reactions themselves, and how characteristics of the listener may determine which emotions are felt. The field draws upon and has significant implications for such areas as philosophy, musicology, and aesthetics, as well the acts of musical composition and performance. The implications for casual listeners are also great; research has shown that the pleasurable feelings associated with emotional music are the result of dopamine release in the striatum - the same anatomical areas that underpin the anticipatory and rewarding aspects of drug addiction.[2]" - wikipedia.org

[Quote No.52380] Need Area: Fun > Music
"Until the 18th century [1700s], the processes of formal composition and of the printing of music took place for the most part with the support of patronage from aristocracies and churches. In the mid-to-late 18th century, performers and composers such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart began to seek commercial opportunities to market their music and performances to the general public. After Mozart's death, his wife (Constanze Weber) continued the process of commercialization of his music through an unprecedented series of memorial concerts, selling his manuscripts, and collaborating with her second husband, Georg Nissen, on a biography of Mozart. In the 19th century, sheet-music publishers dominated the music industry. In the United States, the music industry arose in tandem with the rise of black face minstrelsy. In the late part of the century the group of music publishers and songwriters which dominated popular music in the United States became known as Tin Pan Alley. The 1920s was the decade that marked the beginning of the modern music era. The music recording industry was just beginning to form and a myriad of new technologies helped to create the way music was made and distributed. The phonograph was invented by Thomas Edison in 1877 and it used wax cylinders to play back recordings. This invention lead to a recorded music market that began to appear in the 1880s. The gramophone was then created in the late 1880s and it used flat discs to reproduce sound, becoming popular in the early 1900s and replacing the phonograph. The way the music was recorded changed in the mid-1920s when the acoustical recording process was replaced with the electrical process. This change made the way that recordings were made sound much better and more natural, helping to expand the popularity of recorded music. As the recording process improved, a number of independent record labels also began to appear during the 1920s. These record labels helped to expand the modern music industry because they took risks and and were more adventurous with their song and artist choices. Prior to the creation of the recorded music industry, popular music was shared through sheet music, piano rolls, and live shows. The second influential technology that helped to create the modern music industry was commercial radio. The first radio was created by Guglielmo Marconi in 1894 and by the 1910s the first commercial public radio stations begin broadcasting in the United States. Many of the first radio stations were owned by newspapers, radio manufacturers, and department stores and did not use the advertising and sponsorship that is familiar to audiences today. Once radio became widespread and popular, the worlds of radio and recorded music began to merge. The music recording industry's profits dropped with the proliferation of commercial radio during the Twenties. Beginning in 1923, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) required licensing fees to play their music on the radio. A final influence on the music industry came near the end of the decade when silent movies turned into 'talkies,' incorporating recorded sounds and creating a whole new venue for the distribution of popular music. Movie versions of Broadway musicals became extremely popular and introduced different types of music to audiences across the world. What we all know as the modern music industry began in the 1920s with all of these new technologies that were created and used to make and distribute music. Later technological advances included cassettes, compact discs and eventually internet delivered radio, music, speech, podcasts, etc." - Unknown

[Quote No.52480] Need Area: Fun > Music
"[Poem:]

'I Am In Need Of Music'

I am in need of music that would flow
Over my fretful, feeling fingertips,
Over my bitter-tainted, trembling lips,
With melody, deep, clear, and liquid-slow.
Oh, for the healing swaying, old and low,
Of some song sung to rest the tired dead,
A song to fall like water on my head,
And over quivering limbs, dream flushed to glow!

There is a magic made by melody:
A spell of rest, and quiet breath, and cool
Heart, that sinks through fading colors deep
To the subaqueous stillness of the sea,
And floats forever in a moon-green pool,
Held in the arms of rhythm and of sleep.

" - Elizabeth Bishop

"[Poem: about the joys of portable, personal, private music, etc whether CDs or these days 'ipods', etc.]

'Man Listening To Disc'

This is not bad --
ambling along 44th Street
with Sonny Rollins for company,
his music flowing through the soft calipers
of these earphones,

as if he were right beside me
on this clear day in March,
the pavement sparkling with sunlight,
pigeons fluttering off the curb,
nodding over a profusion of bread crumbs.

In fact, I would say
my delight at being suffused
with phrases from his saxophone --
some like honey, some like vinegar --
is surpassed only by my gratitude

to Tommy Potter for taking the time
to join us on this breezy afternoon
with his most unwieldy bass
and to the esteemed Arthur Taylor
who is somehow managing to navigate

this crowd with his cumbersome drums.
And I bow deeply to Thelonious Monk
for figuring out a way
to motorize -- or whatever -- his huge piano
so he could be with us today.

This music is loud yet so confidential.
I cannot help feeling even more
like the center of the universe
than usual as I walk along to a rapid
little version of 'The Way You Look Tonight,'

and all I can say to my fellow pedestrians,
to the woman in the white sweater,
the man in the tan raincoat and the heavy glasses,
who mistake themselves for the center of the universe --
all I can say is watch your step,

because the five of us, instruments and all,
are about to angle over
to the south side of the street
and then, in our own tightly knit way,
turn the corner at Sixth Avenue.

And if any of you are curious
about where this aggregation,
this whole battery-powered crew,
is headed, let us just say
that the real center of the universe,

the only true point of view,
is full of hope that he,
the hub of the cosmos
with his hair blown sideways,
will eventually make it all the way downtown.

"[Poem:]

'No Friend Like Music'

There is no whispering of any friend,
No solace that can touch the quivering heart
In that lone hour when a sudden end
Has captured laughter and there falls apart
A rainbow that has bridged a distant hill;
When roses shatter on the stem, and dark
Crowds out the candle's shimmering flame and still
The night creeps on with neither torch nor spark.

No friend like music when the last word's spoken
And every pleading is a plea in vain;
No friend like music when the heart is broken,
To mend its wings and give it flight again;
No friend like music, breaking chains and bars
To let the soul march with the quiet stars!

'Just Whistle'

When times are bad an' folks are sad
An' gloomy day by day,
Jest try your best at lookin' glad
An' whistle 'em away.

Don't mind how troubles bristle,
Jest take a rose or thistle.
Hold your own
An' change your tone
An' whistle, whistle, whistle!

A song is worth a world o' sighs.
When red the lightnings play,
Look for the rainbow in the skies
An' whistle 'em away.

Don't mind how troubles bristle,
The rose comes with the thistle.
Hold your own
An' change your tone
An' whistle, whistle, whistle!

Each day comes with a life that's new,
A strange, continued story
But still beneath a bend o' blue
The world rolls on to glory.

Don't mind how troubles bristle,
Jest take a rose or thistle.
Hold your own
An' change your tone
An' whistle, whistle, whistle!

"[Poem:]

'Music'

What words of mortal man
Can e'er express a throbbing flood
Of silvery joy, can e'er describe
The sadness of a minor chord
Of magic music softly played?
How wondrous music's singing power
That lifts us to a dream
Unspeakable and not to be defiled
With empty words after the magic hour
Has passed and only echoes
Faintly sigh, when sweetly singing notes
Drift o'er the memory, like fragrance
Of a crushed and half forgotten rose.

" - Wilhelmina Stitch
(1888-1936) Wilhelmina Stich is the pseudonym of Ruth Jacobs Cohen Collie. She was a writer, lecturer and poet - called 'The Poem A Day Lady'. Born at Cambridgeshire, England in 1888, daughter of I. W. Jacobs, she married E. Arakie Cohen while he was visiting England and returned with him to Winnipeg, the capital and largest city of the province of Manitoba, Canada. They had one son, Ralph. After her husband’s death in 1919, she was forced to seek employment to support herself and her son. Her friends encouraged her to submit her writing for publication, which led to a successful career as a writer which continued to the time of her death. Writing under the pen names 'Sheila Rand' or 'Wilhelmina Stitch', she had poetry and stories published in the Winnipeg Tribune and the Winnipeg Telegram. In time, she became, in the words an obituary, 'one of the best-known women writers in the British Empire'. She later remarried to Scottish physician Frank K. Collie and moved with him to London, England where she died on 6 March 1936. [refer http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/people/collie_rjc.shtml and http://content.lib.sfu.ca/cdm/ref/collection/ceww/id/254 ]

[Quote No.53523] Need Area: Fun > Music
"[Poem: about the joy of, not only hearing but also, seeing musicians play, in this case an organist]

'The Organist'

I wonder how the organist
Can do so many things;
He's getting ready long before
The choir stands up and sings;
He's pressing buttons, pushing stops,
He's pulling here and there,
And testing all the working parts
While listening to the prayer.

He runs a mighty big machine,
It's full of funny things;
A mass of boxes, pipes and tubes
And sticks and slats and strings;
There's little whistles for a cent
In rows and rows and rows;
I'll bet there's twenty miles of tubes
As large as garden hose.

There's scores as large as stovepipes and
There's lots so big and wide
That several little boys I know
Could play around inside.
From little bits of piccolos
That hardly make a toot
There's every size up to the great
Big elevator chute.

The organist knows every one
And how they ought to go;
He makes them rumble like a storm,
Or plays them sweet and low;
At times you think them very near;
At times they're soaring high,
Like angel voices, singing far
Off, somewhere in the sky.

For he can take this structure, that's
As big as any house,
And make it squeak as softly as
A tiny little mouse;
And then he'll jerk out something with
A movement of the hand,
And make you think you're listening to
A military band.

He plays it with his fingers and
He plays it with his toes,
And if he really wanted to
He'd play it with his nose;
He's sliding up and down the bench,
He's working with his knees;
He's dancing round with both his feet
As lively as you please.

I always like to take a seat
Where I can see him go;
He's better than a sermon, and
He does me good, I know;
I like the life and movement and
I like to hear him play;
He is the most exciting thing
In town on Sabbath day.
