Happy Holidays & a Happy New Year

Here's to You

 

Smiling is a good idea; and feasting. You can never have too many songs that make you smile …  and feasts that make you feisty! So I wrote a happy little song for the ‘festive season’. Next thing I found my husband singing it, (tho he swears he cannot sing). So I reckon it must be a goodie! I’ve sent it to Radio New Zealand and hope they’re going to play it to you over the next week or two. Let me know if you hear it. And especially if you find yourself singing along!

Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year

Peace and love to you as the year draws to an end
Many happy times with family and friends
Sit back and relax, celebrate and cheer
“Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!”

Many ways to celebrate special days and times
Many ways to gather, many ways to find that
One love that gifts us peacefulness and cheer,
Happy holidays and a happy new year. (Yeah!)
“Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!”

PS
Click here for the Happy Holidays & a Happy New Year score
(just a simple melody line and chords). I wrote it in the key of C, to make it easy for most people to sing and play, including on ukulele. But my voice is not so ‘most people’ so I recorded it in A – version in C to come hopefully next year.

Special thanks to Steve Poulton, sound engineer and guitarist extrordinaire, for recording it and playing bass, and the lovely, tropical guitar licks .

A New Woman on the Honours List

Aunty-Phylis No. It’s not me. But I do know her: she inspired this new song I completed on New Year’s Eve. It might be you! I first wrote this song in 1979, so she was around then … If you want to get an idea of what she looks like, download the song lyric sheet under this article.

Meanwhile, we all want to know what woman YOU are nominating for our new Honours award, The Honey & the Star – no doubt you have several in mind. Write their names below via the ‘comments’ section, and tell us a little about those special women – we can’t wait to read about them!

The Honey & the Star

Do ya wanna hear a picture of a walking inspiration?
She’s an open invitation to a heart that needs to love
She makes you sing and smile. She’s a honey, free and wild
She’s the warmest lady, aunty, grandma, mother, loyal friend

She’s all around the country – her home is everywhere
She has a place for everyone. Everyone has a place for her
She wraps her arms around you, you never want to leave
As her laughter is so relaxed and life is a breeze

Yes, lovely lady, I’m talking about you
Singing your praises – the country should too
They never will, so here’s a medal – shows how wonderful you are
In our honours list you’ve won The Honey & The Star

You may not have a classy style – you’re sort of ‘universal’, and
I know when you’re around because I feel you everywhere
Friends, I cannot put my finger on what it is about her
It’s a privilege to know her – it’s a buzz to have her near
Yes, lovely lady …

You have so much to teach me that I cannot find in writing
And I feel you are inviting me to a yummy afternoon tea
You’re clear & quite uncluttered – though your list is overflowing
That reminds me, time is going. It’s another new year’s eve

Well if this song is pretty it is just a spark of the beauty
Of this special kind of woman and the warmth her heart abounds
Her love will shine forever. Take a moment to remember
To express a little thank you – she won’t always be around

Missing Someone Right Now? – then Here’s the Song …

Missing You ImageThinking, in times when families gather together, how hard it is when someone you love dearly can’t be with you.

I wrote this song feeling the tender stuff you feel when missing your lover.  The next week I found myself singing it over the phone in heart-aching tones to my daughter & grand daughter five months into living across the other side of the world in Berlin –  the feelings were just the same.  So here’s a song for you if you’re missing someone … Feel free to send the words to them –  Missing You Lyric – May you be re-united soon!

Missing You
© Radha Sahar 2009

Don’t understand it.
Dunno what’s goin’ on
There’s a gap as wide as a football field
When you are gone

Such a deep down longing
Night and day
I eat chocolate cake
But it don’t seem to take
The hunger away

You’re my soothing syrup
You’re my healing balm
You’re my rib bone, baby
My 23rd psalm
You’re my heavenly twin
Wish I was kissin’ you
There’s an hour in every minute
I am missing you

Can’t explain it – there’s no tears. I’m not in pain
It’s just the natural thing to do, to hang out with you
Now that you’re in my veins

I lie awake well after one
And when daylight finally comes
I keep busy and yet
I never seem to get anything done
You’re my soothing syrup …

Never found I could count on love
As much as this
Sweet everyday, kinda work and play
Togetherness
You fill my being
Like the morning sun
Can’t help smilin’ babe
I tell the whole parade
That we are one

You’re my soothing syrup
You’re my healing balm
You’re my rib bone, baby
My 23rd psalm
You’re my heavenly twin
Wish I was kissin’ you
There’s an hour in every minute
I am missing you

Woody Allen Wishes

It’s that time of the year when we all start clowning around in celebratory mood, sending each other cards  & wishes, and stocking up the pantry with all sorts of goodies (and badies!). Bars and restaurants boom with end-of-year work functions, and life just speeds up …  Perhaps we’ll reach a velocity where Woody’s wishes will come true?   Thanks Louise for emailing me this with your smiles for the silly-season.  I pass them on to all my blog-reading friends – look forward to seeing you all in the ultimate BOOM – the big bang!
