Dance The Night Away


 
40 tracks; Total Time: 2hr, 04 min.
 
“Dance the Night Away” is a 1998 song written by Raul Malo and recorded by American country band The Mavericks, on their fifth studio album Trampoline (1998). The song was also released as a single in 1998. It reached number 63 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and number 4 on the UK Singles Chart.

The music video is set in a supermarket in America. It starts off like any general day in the supermarket, however once the music starts lots of things happen as The Mavericks play throughout the video, A security guard tries to find the band in the different locations, one shopper is sitting and eating some of the stock, girls playing trombones and trumpets, a set of dancers dancing down the aisles, an elderly couple with a dummy in the child seat and a man who plays a keyboard madly, even the staff get involved in the dancing while the security guard tries to find the band playing but by the end he gives up as the music ends with the band looking into the security cameras.

Here comes my happiness again
Right back to where it should have been
‘Cause now she’s gone and I am free
And she can’t do a thing to me
I just wanna dance the night away
With senoritas who can sway
Right now tomorrow’s lookin’ bright
Just like the sunny mornin’ light
And if you should see her
Please let her know that I’m well
As you can tell
And if she should tell you
That she wants me back
Tell her no
I gotta go
I just wanna dance the night away
With senoritas who can sway
Right now tomorrow’s lookin’ bright
Just like the sunny mornin’ light
And if you should see her
Please let her know that I’m well
As you can tell
And if she should tell you
That she…

The Wildwood Flower


 
40 tracks; Total Time: 1hr, 53 min.
 
“Wildwood Flower” (or “The Wildwood Flower”) is an American song, best known through performances and recordings by the Carter Family. “Wildwood Flower” is a variant of the song “I’ll Twine ‘Mid the Ringlets”, published in 1860 by composer Joseph Philbrick Webster, who wrote the music, with lyrics attributed to Maud Irving. Other versions of the song have evolved, including “The Pale Amaranthus” (collected in Kentucky and North Carolina, reported in 1911), “Raven Black Hair” and “The Pale Wildwood Flower” (collected 1915–1919), and “The Frail Wildwood Flower”.

The original Carter Family first recorded “Wildwood Flower” in 1928 on the Victor label. Maybelle Carter leads a rendition of the song on the 1972 album Will the Circle be Unbroken, and frequently performed the song in concert with Johnny Cash and on his The Johnny Cash Show. The Carter version of the song is considered the premier example of “the Carter Scratch”, a form of acoustic guitar playing in which the musician (in the case of the Carters, most notably Maybelle herself) plays both the melody and rhythm lines simultaneously. Woody Guthrie used the tune of “I’ll Twine ‘Mid the Ringlets” for the verses of his song “The Sinking of the Reuben James”, although he added a chorus to the song.

The original poem (if any) from which the lyrics derived has been lost. Other poems attributed to the reputed author of the lyrics, Maud Irving, may be found in periodicals of the time, including Godey’s Lady’s Book and Home Monthly. Several of the poems in the latter periodical carry bylines indicating that the Maud Irving of those poems was a pseudonym for poet and spiritualist J. William Van Namee.

Oh I’ll twine with my mingles and waving black hair
With the rose so red and the lilies so fair
And the mirltes so bright with the emerald dew
The pale and the leader and eyes look like blue

I will dance I will sing and my laugh shall be gay
I will charm every heart in her crown I will sway
When I woke from my dreaming my idols were clay
All portions of love had all blown away

Oh she taught me to love her and promised to love
And to cherish me over all others above
How my heart is now wondering no misery can tell
She left me no warning no words of farewell

Yes she taught me to love her and call me her flower
That was blooming to cheer her through life’s dreary hour
Oh I long to see her and regret the dark hour
She’s gone and neglected her pale wildwood flower
Written by Hank Thompson

The Hillbilly Moon Explosion

Hillbilly Moon Explosion is a Swiss rockabilly band founded in 1998. The group is known for a versatile mix of Rock and Roll, Jump Blues, Swing, Country, Roots rock and Surf music elements.

Hillbilly Moon Explosion originated in 1998 as part of the Zurich rockabilly scene.n The group was founded by the native Englishman and Swiss citizen Oliver Baroni (vocals, bass, guitar) and Italian-Swiss singer Emanuela Hutter. Oliver Baroni was planning to leave his former band, the Hillbilly Headhunters. Emanuela Hutter worked with the singer/songwriter music project MD Moon at that time. The original formation was completed by drummer Aad Hollander and guitarist Pat Matteo, another former member of the Hillbilly Headhunters. The first demo tape was made in the same year. Emanuela Hutter was at the time bound by solo performances and did not enter the band until the following year. In 2006 with the release of All Grown Up, Duncan James replaced Patrick Gese on Guitar and Swiss Luke Weyermann the new drummer.

In addition to touring and performing in Switzerland the band performed a variety of performances in other European countries – including Germany, Spain, Italy, Finland, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Poland and Austria. In 2010, Hillbilly Moon Explosion appeared as the opening act for Jeff Beck in Paris Olympia. The members of the group live in and around Zurich.

Although some media outlets rate it as a very good rockabilly formation from Switzerland, Hillbilly Moon Explosion is still considered an underground band. On the album Buy, Beg or Steal, in the song My love for Evermore Hutter sang a duet with Mark “Sparky” Phillips from the British psychobilly group Demented Are Go.

Michael Row The Boat Ashore

Peter Seeger (May 3, 1919 – January 27, 2014) was an American folk singer and social activist. A fixture on nationwide radio in the 1940s, he also had a string of hit records during the early 1950s as a member of the Weavers, most notably their recording of Lead Belly’s “Goodnight, Irene”, which topped the charts for 13 weeks in 1950. Members of the Weavers were blacklisted during the McCarthy Era. In the 1960s, he re-emerged on the public scene as a prominent singer of protest music in support of international disarmament, civil rights, counterculture, and environmental causes.

A prolific songwriter, his best-known songs include “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” (with Joe Hickerson), “If I Had a Hammer (The Hammer Song)” (with Lee Hays of the Weavers), and “Turn! Turn! Turn!” (lyrics adapted from Ecclesiastes), which have been recorded by many artists both in and outside the folk revival movement and are sung throughout the world. “Flowers” was a hit recording for the Kingston Trio (1962); Marlene Dietrich, who recorded it in English, German and French (1962); and Johnny Rivers (1965). “If I Had a Hammer” was a hit for Peter, Paul and Mary (1962) and Trini Lopez (1963) while the Byrds had a number one hit with “Turn! Turn! Turn!” in 1965.

Seeger was one of the folk singers responsible for popularizing the spiritual “We Shall Overcome” (also recorded by Joan Baez and many other singer-activists) that became the acknowledged anthem of the Civil Rights Movement, soon after folk singer and activist Guy Carawan introduced it at the founding meeting of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in 1960. In the PBS American Masters episode “Pete Seeger: The Power of Song”, Seeger stated it was he who changed the lyric from the traditional “We will overcome” to the more singable “We shall overcome”.
