    *****
    In Penny Lane, there is a barber showing photographs
    Of every head he's had the pleasure to know
    And all the people that come and go
    Stop and say, Hello

    On the corner is a banker with a motorcar
    And little children laugh at him behind his back
    And the banker never wears a mac
    In the pouring rain, very strange

    Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    There beneath the blue suburban skies
    I sit, and meanwhile back
    In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
    And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen
    He likes to keep his fire engine clean
    It's a clean machine

    Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    A four of fish and finger pies
    In summer, meanwhile back
    Behind the shelter in the middle of the roundabout
    The pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
    And though she feels as if she's in a play
    She is anyway

    In Penny Lane, the barber shaves another customer
    We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
    And then the fireman rushes in
    From the pouring rain, very strange
    Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    There beneath the blue suburban skies
    I sit, and meanwhile back

    Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes
    There beneath the blue suburban skies
    Penny Lane!

    Billie Jean was the first short film made for 'Thriller,' the biggest-selling album of all time. The short film for this No. 1 single, directed by Steve Barron, made history as the first video by a black artist to receive heavy rotation on MTV, and was later ranked by the network as one of the 100 greatest music videos of all time.

    Written & Composed by Michael Jackson
    Produced by Quincy Jones for Quincy Jones Productions
    Co-Produced by Michael Jackson for MJJ Productions, Inc.
    From the album Thriller, released November 30, 1982
    Released as a single January 2, 1983

    THE SHORT FILM
    Director: Steve Barron
    Primary Production Location: Los Angeles, California

    Michael Jackson's short film for Billie Jean was the first of three short films produced for recordings from Thriller, which continues its reign as the biggest selling album of all time with worldwide sales in excess of 105 million as of June 1, 2016 and in December, 2015 became the first ever album to be awarded triple diamond status by the RIAA for US sales alone. The Billie Jean single reached No. 1 in 10 countries in the spring of 1983, including seven consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 - becoming the second-highest selling single in America that same year.

    Billie Jean was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on April 4, 1983, and Platinum on February 4, 1989. The song won two Grammy Awards for Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance - Male, as well as an American Music Award for Favorite Single - Pop/Rock and was also named the Single of the Year on The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics' poll in 1983.

    The short film featured a paparazzo attempting to photograph Jackson as he danced through an urban landscape. A specially created set featured steps and sidewalk tiles that lit up underneath Michael's feet. It is here that fans first saw some of Michael's best-known dance moves, such as spinning and landing on his toes. Many of Michael's steps and mannerisms in the video would become forever associated with The King of Pop.

    [W]hen the chorus hit.he sprung into this dance that was unlike anything I'd ever seen, director Steve Barron recounted of Jackson's choreography in the video. It was just extraordinary, instinctive. He pulled it all together and turned it into what we saw.The camera literally steamed up, the eyepiece steamed up, because of my heat from what I was seeing. Barron also recalled the crew breaking into spontaneous applause after Michael finished dancing.

    The Billie Jean short film made history as the first video by a black artist to be played in heavy rotation on MTV, then in its second year. In 1992, the short film was inducted into the Music Video Producers Hall of Fame. MTV ranked Billie Jean as the 35th greatest music video of all time in 1999, one of three entries of Jackson's on the chart alongside Thriller and Beat It.

  • Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal

    9:26

    The short film for Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal was the centerpiece of the feature film Moonwalker, and featured the debut of Michael's iconic anti-gravity lean. Inspired in part by Fred Astaire's Girl Hunt Ballet dance number in the film The Band Wagon, Smooth Criminal was named Best Video at the BRIT Awards, Broadcast Film Critics Association and the People's Choice Awards.

    Buy/Listen to Bad 25:

    Written and Composed by Michael Jackson
    Produced by Quincy Jones for Quincy Jones Productions
    Co-Produced by Michael Jackson for MJJ Productions, Inc.
    From the album Bad, released August 31, 1987
    Released as a single October 21, 1988

    THE SHORT FILM
    Director: Colin Chilvers
    Primary Production Location: Los Angeles, California

    Michael Jackson's short film for Smooth Criminal was the sixth of nine short films produced for recordings from Bad, one of the best selling albums of all time. The Smooth Criminal single hit No. 1 in Spain and The Netherlands and reached the Top 10 in the UnitedStates, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Ireland and Switzerland. In the United States, Smooth Criminal reached the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100-the sixth single from Bad to do so-as well as Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles charts.

    In addition to being a standalone short film, Smooth Criminal became the centerpiece of Michael's most ambitious film project at the time, Moonwalker, a feature-length film that was released theatrically in various countries outside of the United States. In the Smooth Criminal portion of the film, Michael and his friends face off against the notorious drug lord Mr. Big (Joe Pesci) and attempt to foil his plot to get the children of the world hooked on drugs-but of course, in the end, Michael defeats the villain.

    The musical portion of Smooth Criminal takes place in the magical Club '30s, where Michael instructed his friends to meet him. While Katie (Kellie Parker), Zeke (Brandon Adams) and Sean (Sean Lennon) find the club to belong abandoned, Club '30s springs to life when Michael shows up, wearing a blue and white pinstripe suit and fedora.

    As the kids watch through the window, Michael flips a coin into the jukebox and leads the club patrons through a dazzling performance to Smooth Criminal. Here, Michael shows off updated versions of his signature dance moves. He also debuts one of his most iconic dance moves: the anti-gravity lean, a seemingly impossible move.

    The master covering this song.


    I was born in Saginaw, Michigan.
    I grew up in a house on Saginaw Bay.
    My dad was a poor hard working Saginaw fisherman:
    Too many times he came home with too little pay.

    I loved a girl in Saginaw, Michigan.
    The daughter of a wealthy, wealthy man.
    But he called me: That son of a Saginaw fisherman.
    And not good enough to claim his daughter's hand.

    Now I'm up here in Alaska looking around for gold.
    Like a crazy fool I'm a digging in this frozen ground, so cold.
    But with each new day I pray I'll strike it rich and then,
    I'll go back home and claim my love in Saginaw, Michigan.

    I wrote my love in Saginaw, Michigan.
    I said: Honey, I'm a coming home, please wait for me.
    And you can tell your dad, I'm coming back a richer man
    I've hit the biggest strike in Klondyke history.

    Her dad met me in Saginaw, Michigan.
    He gave me a great big party with champagne.
    Then he said: Son, you're wise, young ambitious man.
    Will you sell your father-in-law your Klondyke claim?

    Now he's up there in Alaska digging in the cold, cold ground.
    The greedy fool is a looking for the gold I never found.
    It serves him right and no-one here is missing him.
    Least of all the newly-weds of Saginaw, Michigan.

    I hope you enjoy this harp arrangement of Old Rugged Cross by George Bennard. It was specifically asked for by a gentleman to be played for his mother-in-law's funeral, since this was one of her two favorite songs.

    This Christian hymn was composed in 1912 by George Bennard, and arranged by Rhett Barnwell. The lyrics to the hymn are below. You can buy the sheet music here:

    This recording was made playing a Salvi Iris Gold Harp.

    I claim no rights to the ownership of the song, but please don't use/duplicate this recording without my permission and credit for the performance.

    *****

    On a hill far away, stood an old rugged Cross
    The emblem of suff'ring and shame
    And I love that old Cross where the dearest and best
    For a world of lost sinners was slain

    So I'll cherish the old rugged Cross
    Till my trophies at last I lay down
    I will cling to the old rugged Cross
    And exchange it some day for a crown

    Oh, that old rugged Cross so despised by the world
    Has a wondrous attraction for me
    For the dear Lamb of God, left his Glory above
    To bear it to dark Calvary

    So I'll cherish the old rugged Cross
    Till my trophies at last I lay down
    I will cling to the old rugged Cross
    And exchange it some day for a crown

    In the old rugged Cross, stain'd with blood so divine
    A wondrous beauty I see
    For the dear Lamb of God, left his Glory above
    To pardon and sanctify me

    So I'll cherish the old rugged Cross
    Till my trophies at last I lay down
    I will cling to the old rugged Cross
    And exchange it some day for a crown

    To the old rugged Cross, I will ever be true
    Its shame and reproach gladly bear
    Then He'll call me some day to my home far away
    Where his glory forever I'll share

    So I'll cherish the old rugged Cross
    Till my trophies at last I lay down
    I will cling to the old rugged Cross
    And exchange it some day for a crown

    EEK GUESS WHERE I'M PLANNING A VACATION TO?!?!? That's right: The Isle of Skye, Scotland! Pity I can't bring my harp with me and play this for you there....

    This versatile, pretty folk tune is most recently famous as the theme/opening song to Outlander, a historical-fiction series about a woman who falls through time into the Scottish highlands and her romance with the handsome Jamie.

    The Skye Boat Song

    (Originally a Scottish folk song, altered by Bear McCreary for the show)

    Sing me a song of a lass that is gone,
    Say, could that lass be I?
    Merry of soul she sailed on a day
    Over the sea to Skye.

    Billow and breeze, islands and seas,
    Mountains of rain and sun,
    All that was good, all that was fair,
    All that was me is gone.

    Sing me a song of a lass that is gone,
    Say, could that lass be I?
    Merry of soul she sailed on a day
    Over the sea to Skye

    Unaltered version by Robert Louis Stevenson:

    [Chorus]
    Sing me a song of a lad that is gone,
    Say, could that lad be I?
    Merry of soul he sailed on a day
    Over the sea to Skye.

    Mull was astern, Rum on the port,
    Eigg on the starboard bow,
    Glory of youth glowed in his soul,
    Where is that glory now?

    [Chorus]

    Give me again all that was there,
    Give me the sun that shone!
    Give me the eyes, give me the soul,
    Give me the lad that's gone!

    [Chorus]

    Billow and breeze, islands and seas,
    Mountains of rain and sun,
    All that was good, all that was fair,
    All that was me is gone.

    This is a sample playlist of some of the hidden gems I have hidden in my repertoire! For many of these songs, these are the first recordings of which I am aware. I wanted to play a few blends of these for you to give an example of the sort of music I perform live at events!

    This particular blend is a Celtic-themed peaceful blend with a couple Celtic jigs thrown in! This blend would be great as harp background music for a baby shower, tea party/luncheon, music therapy, or even for a memorial / funeral service.

    May this blend ease whatever burdens are on your heart and mind!

    This is a poignant, sweet, deep song by the fabulous Deborah Henson-Conant! In lieu of writing my own thoughts on this piece, I have included links to her introductions and copied the lyrics below.

    ****

    VIA:

    “The Nightingale” is one of my most-requested songs – one of those songs that comes out whole, that just seems like a simple statement of truth.

    I wrote it in memory of my mother’s voice – and since I published it years ago, harpists all over the world now play it, and thanks to Google Alerts, my inbox drops links to performances once or twice a week – little gifts I enjoy as I watch performances, from beginners in their bedrooms to students in dorm rooms, to professionals on television shows.

    I’ve seen it performed on a Tedx stage, in ensemble, with harp and cello, with handbells. On tiny toy harps, and on concert grand instruments, and I’ve collected a few of those videos below. (see link).

    ****

    Who will sing for the Nightingale
    when the night is gone;
    when the daylight comes.
    Who will sing for the Nightingale
    when she sleep alone in the sun?

    Many's the time her silken tones
    soothed my rough and weary bones
    Many's the time her lullaby
    brought me to my rest.

    But who will sing for the Nightingale?
    Her own sweet song is silent now
    Who will sing for the Nightingale
    when she sleep alone in the sun?

    (Harp interlude)

    Many's the time her silken tones
    soothed my rough and weary bones
    Many's the time her lullaby
    brought me to my rest.

    But who will sing for the Nightingale?
    Her own sweet song is silent now
    Who will sing for the Nightingale
    when she sleep alone in the sun?
    when she sleep alone in the sun?

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence

    In restless dreams I walked alone
    Narrow streets of cobblestone
    'Neath the halo of a street lamp
    I turned my collar to the cold and damp
    When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
    That split the night
    And touched the sound of silence

    And in the naked light I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more
    People talking without speaking
    People hearing without listening
    People writing songs that voices never share
    And no one dared
    Disturb the sound of silence

    Fools, said I, You do not know
    Silence, like a cancer, grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you
    But my words, like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells, of silence

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon god they made
    And the sign flashed out its warning
    In the words that it was forming
    And the sign said, The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls
    And whispered in the sounds of silence

    ****

    Every time our eyes meet
    This feeling inside me
    Is almost more than I can take
    Baby, when you touch me
    I can feel how much you love me
    And it just blows me away
    I've never been this close to anyone or anything
    I can hear your thoughts, I can see your dreams

    I don't know how you do what you do
    I'm so in love with you
    It just keeps getting better
    I want to spend the rest of my life with you by my side
    Forever and ever
    Every little thing that you do
    Baby, I'm amazed by you

    The smell of your skin
    The taste of your kiss
    The way you whisper in the dark
    Your hair all around me
    Baby, you surround me
    Touch every place in my heart
    And it feels like the first time every time
    I want to spend the whole night in your eyes

    I don't know how you do what you do
    I'm so in love with you
    It just keeps getting better
    I want to spend the rest of my life with you by my side
    Forever and ever
    Every little thing that you do
    Baby, I'm amazed by you

    Every little thing that you do
    I'm so in love with you
    It just keeps getting better
    I want to spend the rest of my life with you by my side
    Forever and ever
    Every little thing that you do, oh
    Every little thing that you do
    Baby, I'm amazed by you

    ****


    You with the sad eyes
    Don't be discouraged
    Oh I realize
    Its hard to take courage
    In a world full of people
    You can lose sight of it all
    And the darkness inside you
    Can make you feel so small

    But I see your true colors
    Shining through
    I see your true colors
    And that's why I love you
    So don't be afraid to let them show
    Your true colors
    True colors are beautiful
    Like a rainbow

    Show me a smile then
    Don't be unhappy, can't remember
    When I last saw you laughing
    If this world makes you crazy
    And you've taken all you can bear
    You call me up
    Because you know I'll be there

    And I'll see your true colors
    Shining through
    I see your true colors
    And that's why I love you
    So don't be afraid to let them show
    Your true colors
    True colors are beautiful
    Like a rainbow

    If this world makes you crazy
    And you've taken all you can bear
    You call me up
    Because you know I'll be there
    And I'll see your true colors
    Shining through
    I see your true colors
    And that's why I love you
    So don't be afraid to let them show

    Your true colors
    True colors
    True colors
    Shining through

    I see your true colors
    And that's why I love you
    So don't be afraid to let them show

    Ah, look at all the lonely people
    Ah, look at all the lonely people
    Eleanor Rigby
    Picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
    Lives in a dream
    Waits at the window
    Wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
    Who is it for?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong?
    Father McKenzie
    Writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear
    No one comes near
    Look at him working
    Darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there
    What does he care?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all come from?
    All the lonely people
    Where do they all belong?
    Ah, look at all the lonely people
    Ah, look at all the lonely people
    Eleanor Rigby
    Died in the church and was buried along with her name
    Nobody came
    Father McKenzie
    Wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave
    No one was saved
    All the lonely people (ah, look at all the lonely people)
    Where do they all come from?
    All the lonely people (ah, look at all the lonely people)
    Where do they all belong?

  • Saginaw Michigan - Lefty Frizzell

    3:11

    I was born in Saginaw, Michigan.
    I grew up in a house on Saginaw Bay.
    My dad was a poor hard working Saginaw fisherman:
    Too many times he came home with too little pay.

    I loved a girl in Saginaw, Michigan.
    The daughter of a wealthy, wealthy man.
    But he called me: That son of a Saginaw fisherman.
    And not good enough to claim his daughter's hand.

    Now I'm up here in Alaska looking around for gold.
    Like a crazy fool I'm a digging in this frozen ground, so cold.
    But with each new day I pray I'll strike it rich and then,
    I'll go back home and claim my love in Saginaw, Michigan.

    I wrote my love in Saginaw, Michigan.
    I said: Honey, I'm a coming home, please wait for me.
    And you can tell your dad, I'm coming back a richer man
    I've hit the biggest strike in Klondyke history.

    Her dad met me in Saginaw, Michigan.
    He gave me a great big party with champagne.
    Then he said: Son, you're wise, young ambitious man.
    Will you sell your father-in-law your Klondyke claim?

    Now he's up there in Alaska digging in the cold, cold ground.
    The greedy fool is a looking for the gold I never found.
    It serves him right and no-one here is missing him.
    Least of all the newly-weds of Saginaw, Michigan.

    We're the happiest man and wife in Saginaw, Michigan.
    He's ashamed to show his face in Saginaw, Michigan.

    ***

    The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
    Not a footprint to be seen
    A kingdom of isolation
    And it looks like I'm the queen
    The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
    Couldn't keep it in, Heaven knows I've tried

    Don't let them in, don't let them see
    Be the good girl you always have to be
    Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know
    Well, now they know!

    Let it go, let it go
    Can't hold it back anymore
    Let it go, let it go
    Turn away and slam the door!
    I don't care what they're going to say
    Let the storm rage on
    The cold never bothered me anyway

    It's funny how some distance
    Makes everything seem small
    And the fears that once controlled me
    Can't get to me at all!

    It's time to see what I can do
    To test the limits and break through
    No right, no wrong, no rules for me
    I'm free!

    Let it go, let it go
    I'm one with the wind and sky
    Let it go, let it go
    You'll never see me cry
    Here I stand, and here I'll stay
    Let the storm rage on!

    ]My power flurries through the air into the ground
    My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
    And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
    I'm never going back, the past is in the past!

    Let it go, let it go
    And I'll rise like the break of dawn
    Let it go, let it go
    That perfect girl is gone
    Here I stand in the light of day
    Let the storm rage on!

    The cold never bothered me anyway

    Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day walk on water?
    Mary did you know that your baby boy would save our sons and daughters?

    Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
    This child that you've delivered, will soon deliver you

    Mary did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
    Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?

    Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
    When you kiss your little baby, you kiss the face of God
    Mary did you know?

    The blind will see, the deaf will hear, the dead will live again
    The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb

    Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
    Mary did you know that your baby boy would one day rule the nations?

    Did you know that your baby boy is heaven's perfect lamb?
    That sleeping child you're holding is the great I am

    Mary did you know?
