    Ramsey Lewis Trio - Summer Breeze

    Ramsey Lewis Trio - Summer Breeze (1973)




    Seals & Croft - Summer Breeze

    Seals & Croft - Summer Breeze (1972)

    "Summer Breeze"

    See the curtains hangin' in the window
    In the evening on a Friday night
    A little light a-shinin' through the window
    Lets me know everything's all right

    Summer breeze makes me feel fine
    Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind
    Summer breeze makes me feel fine
    Blowin' though the jasmine in my mind

    See the paper layin' on the sidewalk
    A little music from the house next door
    So I walk on up to the doorstep
    Through the screen and across the floor

    Summer breeze makes me feel fine
    Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind
    Summer breeze makes me feel fine
    Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind

    Sweet days of summer, the jasmine's in bloom
    July is dressed up and playing her tune
    And I come home from a hard day's work
    And you're waitin' there
    Not a care in the world

    See the smile awaitin' in the kitchen
    Through cookin' and the plates for two
    Feel the arms that reach out to hold me
    In the evening when the day is through

    Summer breeze makes me feel fine
    Blowing through the jasmine in my mind
    Summer breeze makes me feel fine
    Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

    1.5 speed is recommended for all of these

    Across The Universe - John Lennon

    Across The Universe - John Lennon (1969)

    Fiona Apple - Across the Universe (2022)



    Aurora - Across the Universe (2019)



    The Beatles



    "Across The Universe"
    ("Let It Be" Version)

    Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup
    They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe
    Pools of sorrow waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind
    Possessing and caressing me

    Jai guru deva om
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world

    Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes
    They call me on and on across the universe
    Thoughts meander like a restless wind
    Inside a letter box they
    Tumble blindly as they make their way
    Across the universe

    Jai guru deva om
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world

    Sounds of laughter shades of life are ringing
    Through my open ears inciting and inviting me
    Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns
    And calls me on and on across the universe

    Jai guru deva om
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world
    Nothing's gonna change my world

    Jai guru deva
    Jai guru deva
    Jai guru deva
    Jai guru deva
    Jai guru deva

    This an upbeat version. The album itself was very downbeat.

    Bob Dylan - Not Dark Yet


    Bob Dylan - Not Dark Yet (1997)

    1.25 speed is recommended



    "Not Dark Yet"

    Shadows are fallin' and I've been here all day
    It's too hot to sleep and time is runnin' away
    Feel like my soul has turned into steel
    I've still got the scars that the sun didn't heal
    There's not even room enough to be anywhere
    It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

    Well, my sense of humanity has gone down the drain
    Behind every beautiful thing there's been some kind of pain
    She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
    She put down in writin' what was in her mind
    I just don't see why I should even care
    It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

    Well, I've been to London and I been to gay Paris
    I've followed the river and I got to the sea
    I've been down on the bottom of the world full of lies
    I ain't lookin' for nothin' in anyone's eyes
    Sometimes my burden is more than I can bear
    It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

    I was born here and I'll die here against my will
    I know it looks like I'm movin' but I'm standin' still
    Every nerve in my body is so naked and numb
    I can't even remember what it was I came here to get away from
    Don't even hear the murmur of a prayer
    It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

    Linda Ronstadt - Long Long Time

    Linda Ronstadt - Long Long Time (1970)




    "Long Long Time"

    Love will abide
    Take things in stride
    Sounds like good advice
    But there's no one at my side

    And time washes clean
    Love's wounds unseen
    That's what someone told me
    But I don't know what it means

    'Cause I've done everything I know
    To try and make you mine
    And I think I'm gonna love you
    For a long, long time

    Caught in my fears
    Blinking back the tears
    I can't say you hurt me
    When you never let me near

    And I never drew
    One response from you
    All the while you fell
    All over girls you never knew

    'Cause I've done everything I know
    To try and make you mine
    And I think it's going to hurt me
    For a long, long time

    Wait for the day
    You'll go away
    Knowing that you warned me
    Of the price I'd have to pay

    And life's full of flaws
    Who knows the cause?
    Living in the memory
    Of a love that never was

    'Cause I've done everything I know
    To try and change your mind
    And I think I'm going to miss you
    For a long, long time

    'Cause I've done everything I know
    To try and make you mine
    And I think I'm gonna love you
    For a long, long time

    U2- Drowning Man

    U2- Drowning Man (1983)



    Rick Beato Analysis

    Rick Beato - U2 - Drowning Man (2022)



    "Drowning Man"

    Take my hand
    You know I'll be there
    If you can
    I'll cross the sky for your love
    For I have promised
    For to be with you tonight
    And for the time that will come

    Take my hand
    You know I'll be there
    If you can
    I'll cross the sky for your love
    And I understand
    These winds and tides
    This change of times
    Won't drag you away

    Hold on, and hold on tightly
    Hold on, and don't let go of my love
    The storms will pass, it won't be long now
    This love will last, this love will last forever

    And take my hand, you know I'll be there
    If you can I'll cross the sky for your love
    Give you what I hold dear

    Hold on, hold on tightly
    Hold on, and hold on tightly
    Rise up, rise up with wings like eagles
    You run, you run
    You run and not grow weary

    Hold on, and hold on tightly
    Hold on, hold on tightly
    This love, lasts forever
    Now this love lasts forever

    Deep and expressive. No pretense at all. Incredible technical vocal control. I don't think this girl could be off key if she tried. Sings with wisdom, like this first song "Through the Eyes of a Child"

    Aurora - KEXP Seattle Performance in 2020

    Very talented young lady.
    Needs new bowl before next haircut

    Acoustic guitar might be better accompanying instrument for her
