Những Bản Nhạc của Tình Nhân ái

Chào các bạn,

Những ngày gần đây cả nước đang hướng về miền Trung chia sẻ những khó khăn và thiệt hại về vật chất lẫn tình thần sau hai trận lũ lịch sử. Và hơn bao giờ hết, tinh thần tương thân tương ái, lá lành đùm lá rách của người Việt Nam lại tỏa sáng trên khắp các nẻo đường tình nguyện để đến với miền Trung thân thương.

Nhạc Xanh hôm nay xin giới thiệu với các bạn một số bài hát ca ngợi tình nhân ái, sự sẻ chia với cộng đồng và niềm tin về một ngày mai tốt đẹp hơn. Ngoài một số bài khá quen thuộc như The Man in the Mirror của Michael Jackson, Greatest Love of All của Whitney Houston, và We Are the World mình giới thiệu thêm Wake Up Everybody, United We Stand, Get Together và That’s What Friends Are For, 2 versions của Kindness, và Try a Little Kindness.

Xin dành tặng cho tất cả các anh, chị và các bạn không quản ngại khó khăn đã ở bên đồng bào vùng lũ những ngày này.

Hãy dậy đi mọi người đừng ngủ nữa
Không nghĩ về những điều đã qua, đây là lúc nghĩ cho ngày mai
Thế giới đã thay đổi rất nhiều
So với trước đây
Có quá nhiều cuộc chiến tranh thù hận và đói nghèo

(Wake Up Everybody)

Hãy cười lên, hãy tỏa sáng
Và biết rằng bạn luôn có thể tin vào tôi, chắc chắn rồi
Bạn bè là thế mà
Trong lúc vui lúc buồn
Tôi sẽ ở bên bạn mãi mãi

(That’s What Friends Are For)

Chúc các bạn một ngày nhân ái,

Hoàng Khánh Hòa & Huỳnh Huệ

1/ Wake Up Everybody
Written by John Whitehead
Performed by Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes

Wake up everybody no more sleepin in bed
No more backward thinkin time for thinkin ahead
The world has changed so very much
From what it used to be so
there is so much hatred war an’ poverty
Wake up all the teachers time to teach a new way
Maybe then they’ll listen to whatcha have to say
Cause they’re the ones who’s coming up and the world is in their hands
when you teach the children teach em the very best you can.
Chorus
The world won’t get no better if we just let it be
The world won’t get no better we gotta change it yeah, just you and me.
Wake up all the doctors make the ol’ people well
They’re the ones who suffer an’ who catch all the hell
But they don’t have so very long before the Judgement Day
So won’tcha make them happy before they pass away.
Wake up all the builders time to build a new land
I know we can do it if we all lend a hand
The only thing we have to do is put it in our mind
Surely things will work out they do it every time.

2/ United We Stand
Written by The Brotherhood of Man,
Performed by various artists

There’s nowhere in the world that I would rather be
Than with you my love
And there’s nothing in the world that I would rather see
Than your smile my love

For united we stand
Divided we fall
And if our backs should ever be against the wall
We’ll be together, together, you and I
For united we stand
Divided we fall
And if our backs should ever be against the wall
We’ll be together, together, you and I

And if the world about you falls apart my love
Then I’ll still be here
And if the going gets too hard along the way
Just you call, I’ll hear

3/ Man In the Mirror
Written by Glen Ballard and Siedah Garrett
Performed by Michael Jackson, 1988

I’m gonna make a change, for once in my life
It’s gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right…

As I, turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat
This wind is blowin’ my mind
I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat
Who am I, to be blind? Pretending not to see their needs
A summer’s disregard, a broken bottle top
And a one man’s soul
They follow each other on the wind ya’ know
‘Cause they got nowhere to go
That’s why I want you to know

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
I’m asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself, and then make a change)
(Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah)

I’ve been a victim of a selfish kind of love
It’s time that I realize
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
Could it be really me, pretending that they’re not alone?

A willow deeply scarred, somebody’s broken heart
And a washed-out dream
(Washed-Out dream)
They follow the pattern of the wind, ya’ see
Cause they got no place to be
That’s why I’m starting with me
(Starting with me!)

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
(Ooh!)
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Ooh!)
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself and then make a change)

I’m starting with the man in the mirror
(Ooh!)
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Change his ways-Ooh!)
And no message could’ve been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself and then make that…
(Take a look at yourself and then make that…)
Change! I’m starting with the man in the mirror,
(Man in the mirror-Oh yeah!)
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Better change!)
No message could have been any clearer
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
(Take a look at yourself and then make the change)
(You gotta get it right, while you got the time)
(‘Cause when you close your heart)
You can’t close your… your mind!
(Then you close your… mind!)
That man, that man, that man, that man
With that man in the mirror
(Man in the mirror, oh yeah!)
That man, that man, that man
I’m asking him to change his ways
(Better change!)
You know… That man
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself and then make a change)
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!
Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah
(Oh yeah!)
Gonna feel real good now!
Yeah yeah! Yeah yeah! Yeah yeah!
Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah
(Ooooh…)
Oh no, no no…
I’m gonna make a change
It’s gonna feel real good!
Come on!
(Change…)
Just lift yourself
You know
You’ve got to stop it. Yourself!
(Yeah!-Make that change!)
I’ve got to make that change, today!
Hoo!
(Man in the mirror)
You got to
You got to not let yourself…
Brother…
Hoo!
(Yeah!-Make that change!)
You know-I’ve got to get that man, that man…
(Man in the mirror)
You’ve got to
You’ve got to move! Come on! Come on!
You got to…
Stand up! Stand up! Stand up!
(Yeah-Make That Change)
Stand up and lift yourself, now!
(Man in the mirror)
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo!
Aaow!
(Yeah-Make that change) — Gonna make that change… come on!
(Man in the mirror) — You know it! — You know it! — You know it!
You know… — (Change…) — Make that change

4/ That’s What Friends Are For
Written by Bacharach, 1985
Performed by various artists

And I never thought I’d feel this way
And as far as I’m concerned
I’m glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if I should ever go away
Well then close your eyes and try
To feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That’s what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I’ll be on your side forever more
That’s what friends are for
Well you came in loving me
And now there’s so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

Oh and then for the times when we’re apart
Well then close your eyes and know
The words are coming from my heart
And then if you can remember

5/ Get Together
Written by Chec Powers
Performed by The Youngbloods, 1963

Love is but a song to sing
Fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Some may come and some may go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment’s sunlight
Fading in the grass

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It’s there at you command

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Right now … Right now…..

6/ Greatest Love of All
Written by Michael Masser and Linda Creed
Performed by Whitney Houston

I believe that children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be
Everybody’s searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfilled my need
A lonely place to be and so I learned to depend on me
I decided long ago never to walk in anyone’s shadow
If I fail, if I succeed at least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me, they can’t take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all inside of me
The greatest love of all is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself, it is the greatest love of all I believe that children are our future
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us of how we used to be
I decided long ago never to walk in anyone’s shadow
If I fail, if I succeed at least I’ll live as I believe
No matter what they take from me, they can’t take away my dignity
Because the greatest love of all is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all inside of me
The greatest love of all is easy to achieve
Learning to love yourself, it is the greatest love of all
And if by chance that special place that you’ve been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place, find your strength in love

7/ We Are The World
Written by Michal Jackson and Lionel Ritchie, 1985
Performed by various artists

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
and its time to lend a hand to life
There greatest gift of all

We cant go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We are all a part of Gods great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we’re making
We’re saving out own lives
its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

Send them your heart so they’ll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to brend
So we all must lend a helping hand Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving out own lives
its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

When you’re down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe theres no way we can fall
Let us realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we’re making
We’re saving out own lives
its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

8/ Kindness
Performed by Chris Tomlin

Open up the skies of mercy
And rain down the cleansing flood
Healing waters rise around us
Hear our cries Lord let ’em rise

It’s your kindness Lord
That leads us to repentance
Your favor Lord, is our desire
It’s your beauty Lord
That makes us stand in silence
Your love
Your love
Is better than life

We can feel
Your mercy falling
You are turning our hearts back again
Hear our praises rise to heaven
Draw us near Lord
Meet us here

9/ Try A Little Kindness (live 1972)
Performed by Glen Campbell

If you see your brother standing by the road
With a heavy load from the seeds he’s sowed
And if you see your sister falling by the way
Just stop and stay you’re going the wrong way

You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets

Don’t walk around the down and out
Lend a helping hand instead of doubt
And the kindness that you show every day
Will help someone along their way

You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets

You got to try a little kindness
Yes show a little kindness
Just shine your light for everyone to see
And if you try a little kindness
Then you’ll overlook the blindness
Of narrow-minded people on the narrow-minded streets

Sunflower

I’m gonna love you if you come my way.

Make it so real it steals your breath away ?
Hey

Sunflower

I’m gonna make you mine.
Well

Isn’t time you finally take it

10/ Kindness
Performed by Cypress Tree

When the night is done
And when we greet the sun
You know there’s no one
I’d rather see
Than you by me

I’d wear my poet suit
If it helped me steady you
Oh when you need me to
I’d soothe your mind

And with a lover’s view
I’d write a song or two
That I would sing to you
A million times
If you asked me to

So come and rest your thoughts with me
Underneath the cypress tree
We can watch the moon and stars shine at their finest
Let the rest say what they may
I’m a mere heartbeat away
And you will always be the object of my kindness

You know it’s not like me
To speak so forwardly
Straight to your core, I see
Straight to my mark

But you know exactly why
My spirit soars at night
You hear your voice inside
Inside my heart
Inside my heart

Chorus

Một suy nghĩ 6 thoughts on “Những Bản Nhạc của Tình Nhân ái”

  1. Chị Huệ và chị Hòa mến,

    Nghe những bản Nhạc Xanh trong buổi sáng đẹp trời hôm nay, sao quá nhiều cảm xúc.

    Nước mắt không chảy nhưng lòng xót xa và trái tim khóc thầm.

    Cảm ơn hai chị nhiều về những bài hát của tình người.

    Thích

  2. Chào anh Vũ,

    Cảm ơn anh đã ghé qua và chia sẻ cùng ĐCN. Em nghe đi nghe lại không biết bao nhiêu lần mấy bài hát này, nhất là bài That’s what friends are for và We’re the world. Hai bài chị Huệ giới thiệu cũng rất ý nghĩa.

    Người Việt mình có tinh thần tương thân tương ái, nên em cũng hi vọng lần này miền Trung quê anh lại sớm trở lại cuộc sống bình thường và một ngày nắng lại đến với tất cả mọi người 🙂

    Chúc anh khỏe nhé 🙂

    E. Hòa

    Thích

  3. Mấy bài này hay ghê, cảm ơn cô nhiều lắm. em mới chỉ kịp dịch một bài thôi, là bài ‘Try a little kindness’, bài này lời khá hay, có gì mai, em sẽ post tiếp, nếu có gì sai sót, em rất mong mọi người sẽ giúp em chỉnh sửa.
    TRY A LITTLE KINDNESS (live 1972)
    (Hãy cố gắng nhân từ)

    Nếu bạn thấy anh bạn đứng bên đường
    Cầm theo vật gì đó khá nặng từ những hạt giống anh ấy đem gieo
    Và nếu bạn thấy chị bạn xuống dốc trên con đường đời
    Hãy dừng và nói rằng anh (chị) đang đi lầm đường

    Bạn hãy cố nhân từ thêm chút nữa
    Chỉ cần chỉ ra thêm một chút nhân từ
    Chỉ cần thắp sáng ngọn lửa nhân từ của bạn cho mọi người cùng thấy
    Và nếu bạn cố nhân từ thêm một chút
    Thì bạn sẽ bỏ qua được sự mù quáng
    Của những con người nhỏ nhen với cách nghĩ hẹp hòi.

    Đừng chỉ đi vòng quanh
    Hãy chìa tay ra giúp đỡ thay vì chỉ ngờ vực
    Và sự nhân từ bạn đã chỉ ra hàng ngày
    Sẽ giúp đỡ ai đó trong suốt con đường họ chọn.

    Bạn hãy cố nhân từ thêm chút nữa
    Chỉ cần đưa ra thêm một chút nhân từ
    Chỉ cần thắp sáng ngọn lửa nhân từ của bạn cho mọi ngừoi
    Và nếu bạn cố nhân từ thêm một chút
    Bạn sẽ bỏ qua được sự mù quáng
    Của những con người nhỏ nhen với cách nghĩ hẹp hòi.

    Thích
