Puff, the Magic Dragon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia"Puff, the Magic Dragon" is a song written by Leonard Lipton and Peter Yarrow and made popular by the group Peter, Paul and Mary in a 1963 recording. ...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puff,_the_Magic_Dragon - 36k - Cached - Similar pages

The lyrics for "Puff, the Magic Dragon" were based on a 1959 poem by Leonard Lipton, a nineteen-year-old Cornell student. Lipton was inspired by an Ogden Nash poem titled "Custard the Dragon," about a "Really-O, Truly-O, little pet dragon." Lipton passed his poem on to friend and fellow Cornell student Peter Yarrow, who created music and more lyrics to make the poem into the song. In 1961, Yarrow joined Paul Stookey and Mary Travers to form Peter, Paul and Mary. The group incorporated the song into their live performances before recording it in 1962.

The lyrics tell a bittersweet story of the ageless dragon Puff and his playmate Jackie Paper, a little boy who grows up and loses interest in the imaginary adventures of childhood and leaves Puff alone and depressed. The story of the song takes place "by the sea" in the fantasy land of Honah Lee.

A 2007 book adaptation of the song's lyrics by Yarrow, Lipton and illustrator Eric Puybaret gives the story a happier ending with a young girl (presumed by reviewers to be Jackie Paper's daughter [1]) seeking out Puff to become his new companion.


[edit] Other interpretations
It's believed by some to refer to smoking marijuana, due to references to paper, dragon ("draggin'") and puff (to smoke) - and a rumor later incorporated into the film Meet the Parents - the song became a hippie anthem. The authors of the song have repeatedly and vehemently denied any intentional drug reference. As said by the author himself, "Puff" is about the hardships of growing older, certainly not drugs. On stage they have often ridiculed that idea by comparing it to songs such as "The Star-Spangled Banner" that could also be construed as drug songs if the listener were of a mind to do so.[1]


[edit] Bans
The song was banned in Singapore in 1963.[2] Singapore has also banned other songs associated with "drug culture" like "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds", and "Yellow Submarine". [citation needed]

With One Look (Glenn Close)

With one look I can break your heart
With one look I play every part
I can make your sad heart sing
With one look you'll know all you need to know

With one smile I'm the girl next door
Or the love that you've hungered for
When I speak it's with my soul
I can play any role

No words can tell the stories my eyes tell
Watch me when I frown, you can't write that down
You know I'm right, it's there in black and white
When I look your way, you'll hear what I say

Yes, with one look I put words to shame
Just one look sets the screen aflame
Silent music starts to play
One tear in my eye makes the whole world cry

With one look they'll forgive the past
They'll rejoice I've returned at last
To my people in the dark
Still out there in the dark

Silent music starts to play
With one look you'll know all you need to know

With one look I'll ignite a blaze
I'll return to my glory days
They'll say, "Norma's back at last!"

This time I am staying, I'm staying for good
I'll be back where I was born to be
With one look I'll be me!



As If We Never Said Goodbye (Glenn Close)

I don't know why I am frightened
I know my way around here
The cardboard trees, the painted seas, the sound here
Yes, a world to rediscover
But I'm not in any hurry
And I need a moment

The whispered conversations
In overcrowded hallways
The atmosphere as thrilling here as always
Feel the early morning madness
Feel the magic in the making
Why, everything's as if we never said goodbye

I've spent so many mornings
Just trying to resist you
I'm trembling now, you can't know how I've missed you
Missed the fairy tale adventures
In this ever spinning playground
We were young together

I'm coming out of make-up
The lights already burning
Not long until the cameras will start turning
And the early morning madness
And the magic in the making
Yes, everything's as if we never said goodbye

I don't want to be alone
That's all in the past
This world's waited long enough
I've come home at last!

And this time will be bigger
And brighter than we knew it
So watch me fly, we all know I can do it
Could I stop my hand from shaking?
Has there ever been a moment
With so much to live for?

The whispered conversations
In overcrowded hallways
So much to say not just today but always
We'll have early morning madness
We'll have magic in the making
Yes, everything's as if we never said goodbye

Yes, everything's as if we never said goodbye
We taught the world new ways to dream

From the movie "Working Girl" Oct 18, 2007

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rCPwhC6R8A

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-tu5wZErno&NR=1 (Michael Ball)

Let The River Run (Carly Simon)

We're coming to the edge
Running on the water
Coming through the fog
Your sons and daughters ...

Let the river run
Let all the dreamers
Wake the nation
Come, the New Jerusalem

Silver cities rise
The morning lights
The streets that meet them
And sirens call them on
With the song

It's asking for the taking
Trembling, shaking
Oh, my heart is aching

We're coming to the edge
Running on the water
Coming through the fog
Your sons and daughters

We the great and small
Stand on a star
And blaze a trail of desire
Through the darkening dawn

It's asking for the taking
Come run with me now
The sky is the color of blue
You've never even seen
In the eyes of your lover

Oh, my heart is aching
We're coming to the edge
Running on the water
Coming through the fog
Your sons and daughters

It's asking for the taking
Trembling, shaking
Oh, my heart is aching

We're coming to the edge
Running on the water
Coming through the fog
Your sons and daughters

Let the river run
Let all the dreamers
Wake the nation
Come, the New Jerusalem

Thanks a lot Steven! Oct 18, 2007

Thanks a lot Steven!

我是很缺乏这方面的知识,这样逐步了解一点挺好的。

问两个愚蠢的问题:

1. 那就是说911事件不但有它的政治含意,还有它的宗教含意?

2. 这是否与希特勒憎恨犹太人有关?

我正在读一本书,一个是在天主教家庭环境中长大的科学家,另一个是穆斯林家庭环境中长大的社会活动人士,两个人自由地辩论他们各自与自己宗教的关系与理解,很有意思。他们两个在法国算是知名人士,同时这两个宗教又在法国很有代表性,但是和美国深层对宗教的理解又不同。哪天有时间翻几段与你们分享。

我岂敢在此胡乱解释. 这些宗教方面的东西我也只知道一些皮毛, 可做不了这种与 实际历史事件 相结合的 interpretation


那个 wikipedia 的链接提到 "Let the River Run" 的歌词将纽约市比作为人们向往的 新耶路萨冷. 我也听过确实有人将 NYC 这么理想化的.



Mentioned in the Carly Simon's song "Let the River Run" from Working Girl; indeed "The New Jerusalem" is often given as an alternate title for the song, which, in the movie's closing credits plays over a long pull-back starting from a single office window in one of the towers of the World Trade Center, perhaps implying that New York City is the New Jerusalem.



那个链接还有这么一小段文字挺有意思的 ...



Secular
...
Margaret Wertheim suggests in The Pearly Gates of CyberSpace: A History of Space from Dante to the Internet that cyberspace has replaced the New Jerusalem in transhumanism.

Accentuate the Positive Oct 20, 2007

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n971eXyInng&mode=related&search= (NRBQ)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AvS8IOV1XqQ&mode=related&search= (Perry Como)

Accentuate the Positive

You have to accentuate the positive
And eliminate the negative
And latch on
To the affirmative
Don't mess with mister in-between

You have to spread joy up to the maximum
And bring gloom down to the minimum
And have faith
'Cause pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene

To illustrate
My last remark
Jonah in the whale
Noah in that ark
What did they do
Just when everything looked so dark?

A Popular Dance Song from the '80s Oct 20, 2007

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdVEM5WMDo0

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSpmtAqoMDI
(notice she makes sure that everyone gets his moment in the limelight)

Gloria (Laura Branigan)

Gloria
You're always on the run now
Running after somebody
You gotta get him somehow
I think you've got to slow down
Before you start to blow it
I think you're headed for a breakdown
So be careful not to show it
You really don't remember
Was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head
Calling Gloria?

Gloria
Don't you think you're fallin'?
If everybody wants you
Why isn't anybody callin'?
You don't have to answer
Leave them hangin' on the line
Oh-oh-oh, calling Gloria

Gloria
I think they got your number
I think they got the alias
That you've been living under
But you really don't remember
Was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head
Calling Gloria?

Aha-ha, aha-ha, Gloria
How's it gonna go down?
Will you meet him on the main line
Or will you catch him on the rebound?
Will you marry for the money
Take a lover in the afternoon?
Feel your innocence slipping away
Don't believe it's comin' back soon
And you really don't remember
Was it something that he said?
Are the voices in your head
Calling Gloria?

Gloria
I think they got your number
I think they got the alias
That you've been living under
But you really don't remember
Was it something that they said?
Are the voices in your head
Calling Gloria?

Somewhere Out There
Lyrics as performed by
Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram
from the movie An American Tail (1987)

written by James Horner, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil

Somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight

Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

And even though I know how very far apart we are
It helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star

And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky

Somewhere out there if love can see us through
Then we'll be together somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true

A Whole New World Oct 23, 2007

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6cak_TkyJU
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Cu5hllQMYo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEl0P9CmCag

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I'm way up here
It's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you
Now I'm in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
Don't you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see
Hold your breath - it gets better
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment red-letter
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me
