Let the sunshine in!

Soldier 1:
We starve-look
At one another
Short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation
Of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes

Mrs. Greenbird – alles, was grün ist und glücklich macht!

Sängerin Sarah Nücken und Gitarrist Steffen Brückner lernten sich 2006 über das Musizieren in ihrer Kölner Kirchengemeinde kennen. Nücken hatte zuvor eine Gesangsausbildung absolviert und war als Sängerin in Chören und Bands aktiv. Brückner war Lobpreisleiter der Kirche Köln West.[2] Danach machten sie zu zweit und zusammen mit Bands Musik, unter anderem mit der Indiepop-Band Plus 49. Zuerst nannten sie sich scherzhaft Goldkehlchen und der Mann mit Hut, später änderten sie den Namen auf Mrs. Greenbird. Die Idee zu dem Namen entstand durch einen toten grünen Papagei, den sie vor ihrem Haus fanden.[2] Sie wählten ihn, als sie für ihren ersten großen Konzertauftritt im Vorprogramm von Schauspieler und Sänger Tim Robbins und Band gebucht worden waren.[3]

Im Herbst 2012 nahm Mrs. Greenbird an der dritten Staffel der deutschen Version der Gesangs-Castingshow X Factor teil. Das Duo arrangiert Hits verschiedener Musikrichtungen in seinen eigenen Stilmix aus Folk, Country und Pop. In dem Wettbewerb interpretierte das Duo so unterschiedliche Lieder wie den Electro-Song Too Close von Alex Clare, das Funpop-Lied You’re the One That I Want aus dem Musical Grease, die Rockballade Creep von Radiohead, der Punkrock-Klassiker Blitzkrieg Bop von den Ramones und die Popballade Frozen von Madonna. Die beiden letztgenannten Lieder spielten sie in den ersten Liveshows. Sie wurden anschließend zum Downloadkauf angeboten und kamen auf Platz 63 und 92 der deutschen Charts. In der dritten Liveshow, dem Halbfinale, zogen sie mit einer Eigenkomposition von Sarah Nücken und einem Song des Folkduos The Swell Season in das Finale der besten drei Interpreten ein. Dort sangen sie unter anderem mit Alanis Morissette deren Hit Ironic und gewannen mit dem selbst geschriebenen Lied Shooting Stars & Fairy Tales den Wettbewerb.

Die beiden Musiker sind auch privat ein Paar und betreiben die Musik neben ihren Hauptberufen als Sozialpädagogin bzw. als Mediendienstleister.[4]

“Shooting Stars & Fairy Tales”

Once I saw a falling star
And it fell into my heart
It lightend up my darkest parts
And it warmed it with its spark

There is just one gun control that works: No guns!

Somehow we are all connected. There is compassion in all of us!

Our Thoughts go out to all involved in this senseless , unfortunate tragedy  at Sandy Hook Elementary School : We Remember December 14, 2012.
Maybe the following clip can give you some hope but nobody will be able to understand why it happened.

There is just one gun control that works:

No guns!

The song “A Lover’s Concerto” was originally written by 2 American Songwriters, Sandy Linzer and Denny Randell, and recorded by The Toys in 1965. The Melody of the song is based on Minuet in G major from J.S. Bach‘s Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach.

Here is an other funny version…

Good luck to Claudia from “EyesOpen.org“who is in Cambodia right now…

Eyes Open is convinced that sustainable progress can be achieved when people in these countries seek to induce change themselves and by their own efforts. However, for most projects, there is simply a lack of available funds.

A contradiction went out walking

A contradiction went out walking.

“Walking Contradiction”

Do as I say not as I do because
The shit’s so deep you can’t run away
I beg to differ on the contrary
I agree with every word that you say
Talk is cheap and lies are expensive
My wallet’s fat and so is my head
Hit and run and then I’ll hit you again
I’m a smart ass but I’m playing dumb

Standards set and broken all the time
Control the chaos behind a gun
Call it as I see it even if
I was born deaf, blind and dumb
Losers winning big on the lottery
Rehab rejects still sniffing glue
Constant refutation with myself
I’m a victim of a catch 22

I have no belief
But I believe
I’m a walking contradiction
And I ain’t got no right

Do as I say not as I do because
The shit’s so deep you can’t run away
I beg to differ on the contrary
I agree with every word that you say
Talk is cheap and lies are expensive
My wallet’s fat and so is my head
Hit and run and then I’ll hit you again
I’m a smart ass but I’m playing dumb

I have no belief
But I believe
I’m a walking contradiction
And I ain’t got no right

I have no belief
But I believe
I’m a walking contradiction
And I ain’t got no right

Sick of the lies and I’m sick of the war.

LYRICS

Sick of the Lies

We’ll never have another, don’t be a silly bugger,

Check under the tree have a more than a stocking stuffer
It make my belly shudder, Don’t want to eat my supper
Come mother earth wanna serve jam and peanut butter
Another latecomer, here comes a great summer,
Arnie Schwarzenegger owns more than eight hummers,
But the trees suffer, too many woodcutter,
Each and everyone is killing off the earth mother
I shouldn’t even entertain the scene, humanity: insanity machine
Admit that it is us that lost this dream, Last generation passed the buck onto me.

We got to purify, from the inside out.’

LYRICS

Spaceship Earth

‘Check this I’m sick of the tricks, sick of the purists. For ages we misfits not talking bout what day it is. The world has made us into capitalistic fatalists, I looking around this place but can’t find the people that I came with.

 

Will all the real truly free people please stand up, tell me somebody out there still hasn’t given up. Is this living of ours living up to the vision or does this revolution stop at your coffee cup, huh,
