Music: Imagine by John Lennon



In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine voted "Imagine" the third greatest song of all time. Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter said, "In many countries around the world — my wife and I have visited about 125 countries — you hear John Lennon's song 'Imagine' used almost equally with national anthems."

Lyrics: Imagine
----------------------

Imagine there's no Heaven

It's easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people

Living for today

Imagine there's no countries

It isn't hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people

Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one

I hope someday you'll join us

And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people

Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one

I hope someday you'll join us

And the world will live as one

Lyrics: Sing with love beside me
(persian part translation)
----------------------

See! What hearts are broken by the hands of life
See, the eyes who looked for an eternal light
From love and faith, our hearts, at the end, should be filled
To fill the whole world one day, with the sound of our voice

So come, with any language
You also sing
Sing with love beside me
And cry out to say that "I love you"

Cry out and say that "I love you"!

Uzbek Music: Assalomu Alaykum by Shahzoda - شاھزادە

Uzbek belongs to the Qarluq family of Turkic languages, and consequently its lexicon and grammar are most closely linked to the Uyghur language, while other influences rose from Persian, Arabic and Russian.

Lyrics: Assalomu Alaykum

----------------------

Shahzoda Assalom alekum!

Assalom Aleykum, Assalomu Aleykum

Assalom Aleykum Olloh balodan saqlasin.

Biz bilgan bir tilak bordir, u muborak

Shu so`zdan boshlayman har safar ko`rishsak

Tinchlik va salomatlik, hotirjamlik baraka

Ezgulik mujassamdir shu ikki og`iz so`zda.

Allohim saqlasin har xil balolardan

Dil ozor chekmasin hech bir-birimizdan

Bog`chadan muborak biz bilgan bu tilak

Shu so`zdan boshlayman har safar ko`rishsak.

Assalom Alaykum (Wa Alaykum Assalam)

Assalom Alaykum (Wa Alaykum Assalam)

Assalom Alaykum

Alloh balodan saqlasin.

Tildan chiqqan har so`z qolar ekan dilda

Ko`ngil bo`lar ma`lum muomala qilganda

Balki kim o`ziga to`q qo`li yetar har narsaga

Kimning dili, joni yo`q yashar ko`ngil bor yog`iga.

Hech narsa teng emas dil tozaligiga

Baribir u dunyo qarar inson qalbiga.

Assalom Alaykum (Wa Alaykum Assalam)

Assalom Alaykum (Wa Alaykum Assalam)

Assalom Alaykum

Alloh balodan saqlasin.

(A-a-a-a-a ya-a-a-a)

Assalom Alaykum (Wa Alaykum Assalam)

Assalom Alaykum (Wa Alaykum Assalam)

Assalom Alaykum

Alloh balodan saqlasin.

Lyrics: Blowing The Wind

----------------------

How many roads must a man walk down,

before you call him a man?

How many seas must a white dove fly,

before she sleeps in the sand?

And how many times must a cannon ball fly,

before they're forever banned?

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,

the answer is blowing in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist,

before it is washed to the sea?

How many years can some people exist,

before they're allowed to be free?

And how many times can a man turn his head,

and pretend that he just doesn't see?

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,

the answer is blowing in the wind.

How many times must a man look up,

before he sees the sky?

And how many ears must one man have,

before he can hear people cry ?

And how many deaths will it take till we know,

that too many people have died?

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,

the answer is blowing in the wind.

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,

the answer is blowing in the wind.

Music: Time To Say Goodbye by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman

When Im alone..................................I dream on the horizon

And words fail;......................Yes, I know there is no light

In a room....................Where the sun is not there

If you are not with me.

.

"Con te partirò" (literally meaning "With you I will leave") is an Italian operatic pop song written by Francesco Sartori (music) and Lucio Quarantotto (lyrics). It was first sung by Andrea Bocelli at the 1995 San Remo Festival and recorded on his album of the same year, Bocelli, and is considered Bocelli's signature song. The song achieved widespread success with a second version sung partly in English, pairing Bocelli with soprano Sarah Brightman, released as "Time to Say Goodbye". Since its release, the song has spawned numerous other versions and been performed by numerous other singers. Notable alternate versions include "Por ti volaré", a Spanish version with significantly modified lyrics, and "I Will Go with You (Con te partirò)", a dance remix performed by Donna Summer. In 2008 Danish pop duo The Loft released their single "Kiss You Goodbye"' based on "Con te partirò"/"Time to Say Goodbye" and containing samples from the originals.

Lyrics: Time to say goodbye

----------------------

When Im alone

I dream on the horizon

And words fail;

Yes, I know there is no light

In a room

Where the sun is not there

If you are not with me.

At the windows

Show everyone my heart

Which you set alight;

Enclose within me

The light you

Encountered on the street.

Time to say goodbye,

To countries I never

Saw and shared with you,

Now, yes, I shall experience them,

Ill go with you

On ships across seas

Which, I know,

No, no, exist no longer;

With you I shall experience them.

When you are far away

I dream on the horizon

And words fail,

And yes, I know

That you are with me;

You, my moon, are here with me,

My sun, you are here with me.

With me, with me, with me,

Time to say goodbye,

To countries I never

Saw and shared with you,

Now, yes, I shall experience them,

Ill go with you

On ships across seas

Which, I know,

No, no, exist no longer;

With you I shall re-experience them.

Ill go with you

On ships across seas

Which, I know,

No, no, exist no longer;

With you I shall re-experience them.

Ill go with you,

I with you.
