Fragile. Handly with care.

Images of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, taken on October, 31, by the morning. You can see the Corcovado Hill totally in clouds, and the Christ the Redeemer, one of the New Seven World Wonders, just above the clouds.
Nature has its caprices… Thanks to my dear friend §¡ñ¡ñhö™ (Tinkerbell) who send me the images by email.

20.000 Views of this blog!

Since may, I made of this blog my new Internet house. I spend almost all of my free time blogging here or thinking what I should blog, and always fighting against my limited English. But I hope that all those thousand of people who visit this blog find something useful and nice. I hope to make more posts for much time yet and receive more views, of course, but always with good things and good images too.

Thank You!

Are You Lonesome Tonight?

“Are You Lonesome Tonight?” is a popular song with music by Lou Handman and lyrics by Roy Turk. It was written in 1926, first published in 1927 and most notably revived by Elvis Presley in 1960 (with the title spelled “Are You Lonesome To-Night?”), recorded on April 4, 1960 along with “I Gotta Know”, and engineered by Nashville sound pioneer Bill Porter. His management, Colonel Tom Parker (it was one of his wife’s favorite songs), persuaded Elvis to record his own rendition of this song. Elvis’ version was based on the Blue Barron Orchestra version from 1950 with spoken segment. It went on to be one of the biggest-selling singles of 1960, peaking at number one on the Billboard pop chart for six weeks and peaking at number three on the R&B charts.

ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?
Words & music by Roy Turk and Lou Handman

Are you lonesome tonight ?
 Do you miss me tonight ?
 Are you sorry we drifted apart ?
 Does your memory stray to a bright summer day
 When I kissed you and called you sweetheart
 Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
 Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there ?
 Is your heart filled with pain ?
 Shall I come back again ?
 Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight ?
 Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
 Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there ?
 Is your heart filled with pain ?
 Shall I come back again ?
 Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight ?
