When found your heart a secret

Hard will it be hold its breath

Love having tenderly its need

Like seed grown fruit the vine

Tended in soil with utmost care

Helpless not shine its fine wares

The glow dines on a smile shares.

These two let breathe

These two hearts in love

Easy forgiven

All offense forgive

Mariah Carey -All I Want For Christmas Is You


I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true...
All I want for Christmas
Is you...

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you...

You baby
I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow
I'm just gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe
I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won't even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeer click
'Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do
Baby all I want for Christmas is you
You...

All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children's
Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won't you bring me the one I really need
Won't you please bring my baby tome...
Oh I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for
I just want to see baby
Standing right outside my door
Oh I just want him for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby all I want for Christmas is
You...

All I want for Christmas is you baby...[Repeat]

ELAN

ELÁN  -  EBULLIENCE - SCHWUNG- ÉLAN - VITACITA - ЭНТУЗИАЗМ- ENTUSIASMO

this is the name of slovak pop-music group, that is well known not only in former Czechoslovakia and in neighbouring countrys... this summer they had performance in  v Carnegie Hall in  New Yourk....


About Elan

They started just like other school bands of the communist era. The band was put together by Vašo Patejdl, who did not even know the band was to become a legend. They used to play in clubs and on local stages in early and mid-seventies. Then came the first breakthrough with a song called “Kaskadér” that hit the first rank in “Bratislavská lyra“ contest. The band’s popularity started to rise immediately. With their hits on the radio and on the TV, one success was following the other. Their songs dominated the top positions in all pop-music charts. The band’s albums became blockbusters that actually broke all the sales records in former Czechoslovakia. Four times during the eighties, the band has won the highest pop-music award “Zlaty Slavik”. With no difference between the kids and adults, the hits performed by Elán are well known to the listeners of all ages. Their melodies and lyrics have become widely popular, so that everybody knows them.

Then suddenly, Jožo Ráž has suffered a serious motorbike crash, as he was hit by a slack car driver. This was a fatal turnover for Jožo himself, but also for the band and of course for the hundreds of thousands of fans in both Slovakia and Czech Republic. The crowds of people were praying for Jožo’s healing. And then the miracle came. Finally, after a longer break, Jožo and Elán made it back to stage.
The main and unchanging members of the group:


Jožo Ráž
The front man, voice and bass of the band
Born in the sign of Scorpio

charismatic, controversial, popular and beloved freethinker, a rebel, passionate biker with an obsession for any machine, that rides fast

Vašo Patejdl
Keyboard player, singer, and composer
Born in the sign of Libra

an universal musical talent, author of many famous hits and projects covering virtually all musical genres and styles from classical music to musical, a name that stands as a synonym for talent and hard work

Jano Baláž
Guitar and voice of the band, a true heart of the band
Born in the sign of Virgo

an enthusiast for anything that’s new and complicated, owner of a big guitar collection, sportsman and successful racing driver

Niečo  o Eláne:
Začínali tradične, ako väčšina školských partičiek v tej dobe. Spolu ich dával Vašo Patejdl a vtedy nič netušiac stál pri zrode legendy. V 70. rokoch hrali po rôzných kluboch a rôzných zábavach. Potom prišiel prvý úspech s piesňou Kaskadér, ktorá zabodovala na Bratislavskej lyre. Tak sa postupne zviditeľnili a zrazu boli ich piesne v éteri. Strmý vzostup a jeden úspech za druhým, jedna doska nasledovala za druhou a trhali rekordy v prodajností. Štyria Zlatí Slavíci ozdobily skupinu v 80. rokoch. Hity Elánu takmer zľudoveli a ich slova všetci dobre poznajú.

Osudovým zlomom pre všetkých, osobným aj profesionálným bola nehoda Joža Ráža. Jeho milovaná motorka sa stretla s osobným automobilom nepozorného vodiča. Davy ľudí v obou republikách prežívali Jožov úraz a prosili za jeho uzdravenie. Stalo se. Návrat Elánu a Joža Ráže na pódia je mnohými považováný za zázrak.
Hlavními a nemennými piliermi skupiny boli a sú:

Jožo Ráž
spevák, bassgitarista, frontman kapely
narozený v znamení Škorpiona
Je to charizmatická osobnosť, pre mnohých kontroverzný, milovaný a obdivovaný voľnomyšlienkár, rebel, vášnivý motorkár so slabosťou  riadiť všetko čo je rychlé...

Vašo Patejdl
hráč na klávesových nástrojoch, spevák, skladateľ
narozený v znamení Váh
Je to všestranný hudobný talent, autor mnohých hitov, ktorých podpis nájdeme naprieč celého spektra hudebných žánrov, od vážnej hudby po muzikály, jeho meno je synonymom talentu, pracovitostí a usilovností.

Jano Baláž
gitarista, spevák a železné jadro kapely
narozený v znamení Panny
Je to obdivovateľ a nadšenec pre všetko, čo je technicky nové a zložité, majiteľ množstva gitár, športovec a úspešný automobilový pretekár.




Elan - Voda, co ma drzi nad vodou

Elan - Ak nie si moja

Elán - No čo je? (New York 2007)

Elán - Láska Moja

ELAN - nie sme zli

Some Christmas songs

Jingle Bell Rock


Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That's the jingle bell,
That's the jingle bell,
That's the jingle bell rock.

Bobby Helms




The Little Drummer Boy


Come they told me

A new born King to see,

Our finest gifts we bring
pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the King

So to honor Him
pa rum pum pum pum,

Little Baby
pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too,

I have no gift to bring
pa rum pum pum pum
That's fit to give our King

Shall I play for you!
pa rum pum pum
on my drum.

Mary nodded
pa rum pum pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time

I played my drum for Him
pa rum pum pum
I played my best for Him
pa rum pum pum pum
rum pum pum pum
rum pum pum pum
Then He smiled at me
pa rum pum pum pum
me and my drum.

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas, And a Happy New Year!
We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas, And a Happy New Year!

Good tidings to you, wherever you are;
Good tidings for Christmas, And a Happy New Year!

We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas, And a Happy New Year!

Old English Carol

 

Mary's Boy Child

Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible say
Mary's Boy Child, Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day
Hark, now hear the angels sing
"New King's born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas Day."

While shepherds watched their flocks by night
They saw a bright new shining star
And heard a choir from heaven sing
The music came from afar
Hark, now hear the angels sing,
"New King's born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas Day."

Now Joseph and his wife Mary
Came to Bethlehem that night
They found no place to bear her Child
Not a single room was in sight
By and by they found a little nook
In a stable all forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark
Mary's little Boy Child was born
Trumpets sound and angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas Day.

MY HOME-CITY -KOŠICE- CASSOVIA




Košice – is the metropolis of Eastern Slovakia and the second largest town of the Slovak Republic.

The town has a rich and famous past, which left jewels of architecture. After extensive reconstruction work the historic downtown, which is the largest urban monument reserve on Slovakia, has become the object of pride not only for Košičans but for all of Slovakia. To the recreational area belong the park at the Immaculata and the park of the Singing fountain - both popular places for inhabitants and visitors alike. Especially the later takes pride in its uniqueness.

Places of Interest

The Singing fountain and the chimes are a real attraction: The fountain as able simultaneously to react to its own music, to the sound of the chimes and to the music transmitted from the nearby theatre. This musical play makes a stay in the park truly rewarding and also accompanies a walk around the Urban tower, the cathedral St. Elisabeth - with the chapel St. Michael - and the streets around the Golden Cross in downtown.

Košice is distinguished by exciting cultural, social and sports events. Among the most important events are the Košice Spring of Music, the promenade concerts during the Košice Summer of Culture, the Festival of Sacred Music, the international contest of water-ski, the International Peace Marathon, wine festivals and others.

Besides these events there are cultural experiences offered by four theatres, museums, art galleries, cinemas and cultural-social centers during all year round. Among the most important social events belongs without doubt the celebration Day of Košice, which has become a tradition and receives also attention from abroad: On the 7th May 1369 Košice received as the first town in Europe the deed with the coat-of-arms.

The Košičans consider it an honour to contribute to the celebrations during the anual commemoration. May has become the month to present the most interesting events in the life of enterprises, institutionsand associations. At the end of the year, the wonderful decoration of the town during the Košice Christmas has become already a legend: there is a Christmas market at the main road with an almost three weeks lasting cultural program, creating a fantastic Christmas atmosphere!
The rich cultural, social and sports life and the famous hospitality, the religious and ethnic tolerance of the Košičans receive from visitors positive response. The city has become a favourite destination for statesmen, diplomates and other important persons, their names are immortalized on the pavement of the historic downtown.

I want


I want

To be your weeping willow,

to hear all your complaints of,

To be a mountain torrent,

that guitly sings in yours ears .

To be your ordinary  day,

to be your holiday,

To be a drink,

that quenches your thirst,

to be your daily bread .

To be your cooling shade,

to be your longed for oasis....



slovak version

Chcem

byť bútľavou vŕbou ,

čo vypočuje tvoje  ponosy,

byť horskou bystrinou,

čo do uší ti tiško spieva.

 Byť tvojím všedným dňom,

 tvojím dňom sviatočným.

 Byť nápojom, čo utíši tvoj smäd,

byť tvojim chlebom každodenným.

Byť tvojím tieňom chladivým,

byť oázou tvojou vysnenou .....
