Timeless Melodies

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on May 22, 2012

 

One of the brother Gibbs, who was a founding member of the popular music group, The Bee Gees – Robin Gibb, has died at the age of 62.

The Bee Gees are prolific songwriters, having written or co-written about 1,000 songs to date.

I don’t think it is possible to write so many great melodies in our generation – simply timeless!

I just picked the album, “Main Course” from my favorite CD collection to make the following video. The whole album is great and worth listening to. 

Country Lane

 

So warm is my morning sun,

red is my rainbow,

soft is the cool summer breeze,

when I saw your face,

I saw the light in your eyes,

so dark and demanding,

like a light in the storm.

Whenever I cry, my friend,

you’re always away and so I pretend

If I could live the dreams that I see,

long live my love.

Walking in country (country) lanes (country lanes),

I’ll never belong to someone again,

living my whole life through,

long live my love for you.

My life has meaning now,

I am a window,

and all things seem clear to me now,

like a light in the storm.

Whenever I cry, my friend,

you’re always away and so I pretend,

if I could live the dreams that I see,

long live my love.

Walking in country (country) lanes (country lanes),

I’ll never belong to someone again,

living my whole life through,

long live my love.

Walking in country (country) lanes (country lanes),

I’ll never belong to someone again,

living my whole life through,

long live my love for you.

R.I.P Robin
