Album Song Why picked? Listen & Watch the song on You Tube*

Album/Artist: Harry Chapin
Song: Cats in the cradle ...

A narrative (Balad) form describing how cruel the world is for Dads! Dads spend a major part of their time earning money for their family and less time spending time with the family. Harry Chapin has told a short story of a Dad and a Son in a poetic form. Many Dads will relate to this song instantly.

"You know,
I am going to be like you Dad,
I am going to be like you Dad"

Watch out Dads, it will happen :-)

Album/Artist: Beatles
Song: Let it be ...

A classic example for a connatation style poem. The writer uses the phrase "Let it be" to mean things beyond a dictionary definition.

Yes, in times of trouble, use the words of wisdom - Let it be!

"Let it be, Let it be
there will be an answer
Let it be"



Album: Billy Joel
Song: River of dreams

In the middle of the night, if you are walking in the sleep (we hope not :-)), what will you be looking for?

Listen to Billy Joel's narration about walking in his sleep and searching for something so undefined and could only be seen by the eyes of the blind.

"In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the jungle of doubt
To the river so deep
I know I'm searching for something
Something so undefined
That it can only be seen
By the eyes of the blind
In the middle of the night"

In this mythical life most of the human beings are searching for something sailing through their river of dreams!

Album: Top Loader
Song: Dancing in the moon light ...

A nice imagery from Top loader - Dancing in the moonlight! Sounds like a good idea.

"Everybody's Dancing in the moonlight
Everybody's feeling warm and bright
It's such a fine and natural sight
Everybody's dancing in the moonlight"
