First up - an appropriate song for a bird geek like me.

Carol Of The Birds )

Next is a song by children's group Hi-5. They seem to sing this at every Carols By Candlelight.
Santa Wear Your Shorts - Hi-5 )

And the terribly depressing Santa Never Made It Into Darwin. About Cyclone Tracy, which hit the city on Christmas Eve in 1974.

You're having a hard time and lately you don't feel so good
You're getting a bad reputation in your neighbourhood
It's alright, it's alright
Sometimes that's what it takes
You're only human, you're allowed to make your share of mistakes

You better believe there will be times in your life
When you'll be feeling like a stumbling fool
So take it from me you'll learn more from your accidents
Than anything that you could ever learn at school

Don't forget your second wind
Sooner or later you'll get your second wind

It's not always easy to be living in this world of pain
You're gonna be crashing into stone walls again and again
It's alright, it's alright
Though you feel your heart break
You're only human, you're gonna have to deal with heartache

Just like a boxer in a title fight
You got to walk in that ring all alone
You're not the only one who's made mistakes
But they're the only thing that you can truly call your own

Don't forget your second wind
Wait in that corner until that breeze blows in

You've been keeping to yourself these days
Cause you're thinking everything's gone wrong
Sometimes you just want to lay down and die
That emotion can be so strong
But hold on
Till that old second wind comes along

You probably don't want to hear advice from someone else
But I wouldn't be telling you if I hadn't been there myself
It's alright, it's alright
Sometimes that's all it takes
We're only human
We're supposed to make mistakes

But I survived all those long lonely days
When it seemed I did not have a friend
Cause all I needed was a little faith
So I could catch my breath and face the world again

Don't forget your second wind
Sooner or later you'll feel that momentum kick in
Don't forget your second wind
Sooner or later you'll feel that momentum kick in

I've hardly been outside my room in days,
'cause I don't feel that I deserve the sunshine's rays.
The darkness helped until the whiskey wore away,
And it's then I realize that conscience never fades.
When you're young you have this image of your life:
That you'll be scrupulous and one day even make a wife.
And you make boundaries you'd never dream to cross,
And if you happen to you wake completely lost.
But I will fight for you, be sure that
I will fight until we're the special two once again.

And we will only need each other, we'll bleed together,
Our hands would not be taught to hold another's,
When we were the special two.
And we could only see each other, we'd bleed together,
These arms will not be taught to need another,
'Cause we were the special two.

I remember someone old once said to me:
"Lies will lock you up with truth the only key."
But I was comfortable and warm inside my shell,
And couldn't see this place would soon become my hell.
So is it better to tell and hurt or lie to save their face?
Well I guess the answer is don't do it in the first place.
I know I'm not deserving of your trust from you right now,
But if by chance you change your mind you know I will not
Let you down 'cause we were the special two, and will be again.

And we will only need each other, we'll breathe together,
Our hands will not be taught to need another's,
When we're the special two.
And we could only see each other we'll bleed together,
These arms will not be taught to need another...

I step outside my mind's eye's for a minute.
And I look over me like a doctor looking for disease,
Or something that could ease the pain.
But nothing cures the hurt you, you bring on by yourself,
Just remembering, just remembering how we were...

Well, the artist more like it. The song is called Hold Me Now, it's from the 80's.

Goes something like this
Don't, don't be afraid of what you feel
Dream and don't be afraid the dream's not real
Close your eyes, pretend it's jus the two of us again
Make believe this moment's gonna stay

Touch, touch me the way you used to do
I know tonight could be all I have with you
From now on you'll be with someone else instead of me
So tonight let's (something) these memories (?)
For the last time

Hold me now, don't cry
Don't say you weren't
Just hold me now
And I
(something) we're apart
We'll always be together
Forever in love
What do you say when words just aren't enough


What is that song? A lyrics search on Google isn't turning up much. Help me out people! :)

Tell me do you think it'd be all right
If I could just crash here tonight
You can see I'm in no shape for driving
And anyway I've got no place to go
And you know it might not be that bad
You were the best I'd ever had
If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago
I might not be alone
Tomorrow we can drive around this town
And let the cops chase us around
The past is gone but something might be found
To take its place...hey jealousy
And you can trust me not to think
And not to sleep around
If you don't expect too much from me
You might not be let down
Cause all I really want is to be with you
Feeling like I matter too
If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago
I might be here with you
Tomorrow we can drive around this town
And let the cops chase us around
The past is gone but something might be found
To take its place...hey jealousy
Listen to my heart
There's only one thing I couldn't start

Why is the path unclear?
When we know home is near
Understand we go hand in hand
But we'll walk alone in fear

Tell me
Where do we go from here?

Modern, Cool Nerd
65 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 47% Dork
For The Record: A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia. A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one. A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions. You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd. Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eeked out for themselves a modicrum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)! Congratulations!

As you may or may not know, I'm making my way through the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy series. Better late than never I always say. Many things all you people say are making sense now.

The first 3 were very random and funny and bizarre but not massively compelling to me.

So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish however. Man. This is my favourite. It's just a total wow book. And Arthur & Fenchurch... *gooshy*

I need to read more, it makes me feel good.

I can see clearly now the rain has gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
Gonna be a bright, bright sunshiney day

So Long...

See the lovers in the faded photograph
She's making funny faces, he's trying not to laugh
Do you remember the way we used to be
When love lifted us up, made us feel so free

How we betrayed each other
Trying to rediscover
That feeling once again
This is not the end

There's no ghost from the past, that we can't shake
Have a little faith in us (have a little faith in us)
There's no history that we can't remake
Have a little faith in us
For all we know the best is yet to come

We like the wind under our wings, you and i
We stay on the ground too long, we get that urge to fly
And it seems that the grass world be more green
In any other place, with any change of scene

Here is the love we long for, open the secret door
And it will take us in
And sweep us off our feet again

There's no ghost from the past, that we can't shake
Have a little faith in us (have a little faith in us)
There's no history that we can't remake
Have a little faith in us (have a little faith in us)
There's no ghost from the past, that we can't shake
Have a little faith in us (have a little faith in us)
There's no destiny that we can't create
Have a little faith in us
For all we know the best is yet to come

And we can climb that mountain and go
Where this love has never gone before
And in our wildest heart of hearts we will know
That we have been reborn

There's no ghost from the past, that we can't shake
Have a little faith in us (have a little faith in us)
There's no history that we can't remake
Have a little faith in us (have a little faith in us)
There's no ghost from the past, that we can't shake
Have a little faith in us (have a little faith in us)
