Song of the Week : Don’t Worry Be Happy

Here’s a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don’t worry be happy
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy
(Don’t worry, be happy now)

Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy

Ain’t got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy
The land lord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don’t worry, be happy
(Look at me I am happy)

Don’t worry, be happy
Here I give you my phone number
When you worry call me
I make you happy

Don’t worry, be happy

Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style
Ain’t got no girl to make you smile
But don’t worry be happy
Cause when you worry
Your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don’t worry, be happy
(don’t worry, be happy now)

Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy

Now there is this song I wrote
I hope you learn it note for note
Like good little children
Don’t worry, be happy
Listen to what I say
In your life expect some trouble
When you worry
You make it double
But don’t worry
Be happy, be happy now

Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy

Don’t worry
Don’t worry don’t do it, be happy
Put a smile on your face
Don’t bring everybody down like this

Don’t worry
It will soon pass whatever it is
Don’t worry, be happy
I’m not worried, I’m happy

Know : National Anthem | Argentina

ArgentinaThe Argentine National Anthem (SpanishHimno Nacional Argentino) is the national anthem of Argentina. The name of the song originally was Marcha Patriótica (Patriotic March), and was later renamed Canción Patriótica Nacional(National Patriotic Song) and finally Canción Patriótica (Patriotic Song). A copy published in 1847 called it Himno Nacional Argentino and the name has remained ever since. Its lyrics were written by the Buenos Aires-born politician Vicente López y Planes and the music was composed by the Spanish musician Blas Parera. The work was adopted as the sole official song on May 11, 1813, three years after the May Revolution; May 11 is therefore Anthem Day in Argentina.

Original Version

Marcha Patriótica (1813) English translation
¡Oíd, mortales!, el grito sagrado:
¡Libertad!, ¡Libertad!, ¡Libertad!
Oíd el ruido de rotas cadenas,
ved en trono a la noble igualdad.
Se levanta a la faz de la Tierra
una nueva y gloriosa Nación,
coronada su sien de laureles,
y a sus plantas rendido un león.De los nuevos campeones los rostros
Marte mismo parece animar
la grandeza se anida en sus pechos:
a su marcha todo hacen temblar.
Se conmueven del Inca las tumbas,
y en sus huesos revive el ardor,
lo que ve renovando a sus hijos
de la Patria el antiguo esplendor.

Pero sierras y muros se sienten
retumbar con horrible fragor:
todo el país se conturba por gritos
de venganza, de guerra y furor.
En los fieros tiranos la envidia
escupió su pestífera hiel;
su estandarte sangriento levantan
provocando a la lid más cruel.

¿No los veis sobre México y Quito
arrojarse con saña tenaz
y cuál lloran, bañados en sangre,
Potosí, Cochabamba y La Paz?
¿No los veis sobre el triste Caracas
luto y llanto y muerte esparcir?
¿No los veis devorando cual fieras
todo pueblo que logran rendir?

A vosotros se atreve, argentinos,
el orgullo del vil invasor.
Vuestros campos ya pisa contando
tantas glorias hollar vencedor.
Mas los bravos, que unidos juraron
su feliz libertad sostener,
a estos tigres sedientos de sangre
fuertes pechos sabrán oponer.

El valiente argentino a las armas
corre ardiendo con brío y valor,
el clarín de la guerra, cual trueno,
en los campos del Sud resonó.
Buenos Aires se pone a la frente
de los pueblos de la ínclita unión,
y con brazos robustos desgarran
al ibérico altivo León.

San José, San Lorenzo, Suipacha,
ambas Piedras, Salta y Tucumán,
La Colonia y las mismas murallas
del tirano en la Banda Oriental.
Son letreros eternos que dicen:
aquí el brazo argentino triunfó,
aquí el fiero opresor de la Patria
su cerviz orgullosa dobló.

La victoria al guerrero argentino
con sus alas brillantes cubrió,
y azorado a su vista el tirano
con infamia a la fuga se dio.
Sus banderas, sus armas se rinden
por trofeos a la libertad,
y sobre alas de gloria alza el pueblo
trono digno a su gran majestad.

Desde un polo hasta el otro resuena
de la fama el sonoro clarín,

y de América el nombre enseñado
les repite: “¡Mortales, oíd!:
ya su trono dignísimo abrieron
las Provincias Unidas del Sud”.
Y los libres del mundo responden:
“Al gran pueblo argentino, ¡salud!

Sean eternos los laureles,
que supimos conseguir.
Coronados de gloria vivamos…
¡o juremos con gloria morir!

Hear, mortals, the sacred cry:
“Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!”
Hear the noise of broken chains,
see the noble Equality enthroned.
On the surface of this land now rises
A Nation glorious and new,
Her head is crowned with laurels,
And a Lion lies at her feet.From the new Champions their faces
Mars himself seems to encourage
Greatness nestles in their bodies:
at their march they make everything tremble.
The dead Inca are shaken,
and in their bones the ardour revives
which renews their children
of the Fatherland the ancient splendour.

Mountain ranges and walls are felt
to resound with horrible din:
the whole country is disturbed by cries
of revenge, of war and furore.
In the fiery tyrants the envy
spit the pestipherous bile;
their bloody standard they raise
provoking the most cruel combat.

Don’t you see them over Mexico and Quito
throwing themselves with tenacious viciousness?
And how they cry, bathed in blood,
Potosí, Cochabamba and La Paz?
Don’t you see them over sad Caracas
spreading mourning and weeping and death?
Don’t you see them devouring as wild animals
all people who surrender to them?

To you it dares, Argentines,
the pride of the vile invader;
your fields it steps on, retelling
so many glories as winner.
But the braves, who united swore
their merry freedom to sustain,
to those blood-thirsty tigers
bold chests they will know to oppose.

The valiant Argentine to arms
runs burning with determination and bravery,
the war bugle, as thunder,
in the fields of the South resounds.
Buenos Aires opposes, and it’s leading
the people of the illustrious Union,
and with robust arms they tear
the arrogant Iberian lion.

San José, San Lorenzo, Suipacha,
both Piedras, Salta and Tucumán,
La Colonia and the same walls
of the tyrant in the Banda Oriental.
They are eternal signboards that say:
“Here the Argentine arm found triumph,
here the fierce oppressor of the Fatherland
his proud neck bent”.

Victory to the Argentine warrior
covered with its brilliant wings,
and embarrassed at this view the tyrant
with infamy took to flight.
Its flags, its arms surrender
as trophies to freedom,
and on wings of glory the people rise
the worthy throne of their great majesty.

From one pole to the other resounds
the sonorous bugle of Fame,
and of America the name showing
they repeat “Mortals, hear!:
For their most honorable throne have opened
the United Provinces of the South.”
And the free ones of the world reply:
“To the great Argentine people, hail!”

May the laurels be eternal,
that we knew how to win.
Let us live crowned with glory…
or swear to die gloriously!

Tribute : Man Who Revived Life with Music : Mahesh Mahadevan

Tamil Music Lovers many remember his music, others may not know him by name but his songs from the movie Vanam Vasappadum will identify him. I loved the tracks of this movie and looked back who is the music director, that day and found his name Mahesh. I thought we got a new talent in the music industry. But the unfortunate news came tagged along we cannot listen his music thereafter; he passed away on October 29, 2002

It is almost a decade now since he left his last tunes for us. I feel it could be a little act of kindness to remember someone who is unknown to me, just another music director. But this man is a true source of inspiration, who fought back Cancer.

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>Instead of giving up on life, he bounced back with his music talent what he missed to recognize before. Read about him, sure he will be a source of inspiration to many of us. May his soul rest in peace and long live in the memories of all his fans, family and beloved ones.

In the decade before his death, Mahesh was actively involved in cancer counselling and in motivating other cancer patients to approach treatment with a positive attitude. Upon his death, The Mahesh Memorial Trust (MMT) was formed in 2002 by friends of Mahesh. MMT committed itself to building a paediatric Ward in the Cancer Institute premises at Adyar, Chennai. 

Mahesh-Memorial-003“TO LIVE in the hearts of those we leave behind is never to die,” said Robert Orr. Forty seven-year-old Mahesh Mahadevan, composer and music director, who passed away on October 29, 2002, has certainly immortalized himself in the hearts of his friends, admirers, associates, music lovers and film goers thanks to his contributions to the field of music.

Mahesh’s foray into the world of music was more by a twist of fate than design. An M.B.A. from XLRI, Jamshedpur, he worked with corporates such as Hindustan Polymers and India Pistons until cancer struck him in the late 1980s. When childhood friend P. Jayendra, one of the founders of Real Image Media Technologies, visited him in hospital and found him somewhat depressed, he suggested that Mahesh, who showed great promise as a music composer in his school and college years, revives this interest and compose music for jingles.

Mahesh soon went on to compose music for over 250 jingles including the hugely popular one for Regaul Blue (Sottu Neelam, Doi) besides TVS Tyres, Apollo Tyres, etc.

Meanwhile, with Real Image Media Technologies are growing rapidly, Mahesh was roped in to provide management inputs and establish systems. As Director, Finance and Administration, Real Image Media Technologies, Mahesh did all that and more. Recalls Jayendra, “More than anything else, it was Mahesh’s personality — warm, friendly and affectionate with a smile on his lips all the time — that brought everyone together. He taught us how to reach out to people.”

From ad jingles to films was a natural transition for the talented Mahesh. As music director, he struck gold with his debut film Nammavar starring Kamal Hassan and won the Special mention award in the National Awards given away in 1995.

Thereafter, he went on to compose music for seven other films including Kuruthi Punal (Tamil) 1995,Preminchukundaam Raa (Telugu), Pelladi Choopistha(Telugu), Padutha Theeyaga (Telugu), the background score for Alavanthan (Tamil), and the yet-to-be-released Vaanam Vasapadum, directed by cinematographer P.C. Sreeram and Janaki Vishwanathan’s Kanavu Meipada Vendum.

Says Janaki Vishwanathan, “I consider myself very privileged to have known him, though briefly. His music is wonderful and I am waiting for the world to listen to it. There could be influenced in the work of other music directors but Mahesh’s music was so unique, it was so Mahesh. He had abundant talent and I feel fate has been cruel in not letting him actualize his potential.”

Mahesh’s positive outlook to life in the face of illness and his graceful acceptance of it was truly admirable and a quality that his friends remember him by. “In fact, even when he was critically ill, there was no self pity or resentment or fear. He enjoyed life and loved living. He prepared himself for what life would eventually hand out to him and never let it come in the way of his work,” Jayendra adds. Mahesh was also involved in career counselling and motivating other cancer patients to face life with the right attitude. He certainly struck a chord in all those whose lives he touched. For a man whose heart was in music and for the rare human being that he was, it was perhaps the most natural thing to do.
