      Last Christmas
      I gave you my heart
      But the very next day you gave it away.
      This year
      To save me from tears
      I'll give it to someone special.

      Once bitten and twice shy I keep my distance
      But you still catch my eye.
      Tell me, baby,
      Do you recognize me?
      Well, It's been a year,
      It doesn't surprise me (Merry Christmas)
      I wrapped it up and sent it
      With a note saying, "I love you,"
      I meant it Now I know what a fool I've been.
      But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again.

      Oh, oh, baby.
       
      A crowded room,
      Friends with tired eyes.
      I'm hiding from you
      And your soul of ice.
      My god I thought you were someone to rely on.
      Me?
      I guess I was a shoulder to cry on.
      A face on a lover with a fire in his heart.
      A man under cover but you tore me apart, ooh-hoo.
      Now I've found a real love, you'll never fool me again.

      I'll give it to someone
      special.
      Special...
      Someone...

      "All I Need" - Jack Wagner (1984)
      Kissing you is not what I had planned
      And now I'm not so sure just where I stand
      I wasn't looking for true love
      But now you're looking at me
      You're the only one I can think of
      You're the only one I see
       
      All I need is just a little more time
      To be sure of what I feel
      is it all in my mind
      'Cause it seems so hard to believe
      That you're all I need
       
      Yes it's true we've all been hurt before
      But it doesn't seem to matter anymore
      It may be a chance we're taking
      But it always comes to this
      If this isn't love we're makin'
      Then I don't know what it is
       
      All I need is just a little more time
      To be sure of what I feel is it all in my mind
      'Cause it seems so hard to believe
       
      All I need is just a little more time
      To be sure of what I feel is it all in my mind
      'Cause it seems so hard to believe
      That you're all I need
       
      No stars are out tonight but we're shining our own light
      And it's never felt so right
      'cause girl the way I'm feeling
      It's easy to believe that you're all I need
       
      Ahh you're all I need, ooh ahh
       
      All I Need is a 1984 song by American actor and singer Jack Wagner. Wagner became known for his role as Frisco Jones on the soap opera General Hospital prior to recording the song; he has since had roles on other television programs, such as The Bold and the Beautiful and Melrose Place. "All I Need" was written by Glen Ballard, David Pack and Clif Magness and produced by Ballard and Magness. The song proved to be Wagner's only Top 40 hit, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1985. It remained at the runner-up position for two weeks, behind Madonna's "Like a Virgin". The single did spend two weeks atop Billboard's adult contemporary chart. The ballad is the title-track to Wagner's 1984 debut album. The song is a romantic plea from Wagner to the one he loves: All I need / Is just a little more time / To be sure what I feel.
      In 2007, the song was covered by Filipino rock band Shamrock for the Filipino romantic comedy movie My Best Friend's Girlfriend.
      In 2009, VH1 ranked "All I Need" No. 71 on its program 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the 80s.

      A video tribute made to a great movie "Arthur". It stars Dudley Moore as the drunken millionaire who is being forced to marry a woman he dispises. He decides to fight for his right to make his own decisions when he meets Linda (played by Liza Minnelli), a wannabe actress who works at a diner. Also stars the great Sir John Geilgud as Hobson, Arthur's protective butler. *Note: I had some volume troubles when making this, because of which I could not do what I wanted during the sax solo. I had a Dudley Moore laugh montage that was really good, but you couldn't hear it next to the music...even when I had the clip volume on the highest setting.

      Lyrics There was a time
      We thought our dream was over
      When you and I
      Had surely reached the end
      Still here we are
      The flame as strong as ever
      All because we both kept holding on
      We know we can weather any storm
      Baby, that's what love is all about
      Two hearts that find a way, somehow
      To keep the fire burning
      It's something we could never live without
      It it takes forever
      We can work it out
      Beyond a shadow of a doubt
      Baby, that's what love is all about
      As time goes by
      We've learned to rediscover
      The reason why
      This dream of our survives
      Through thick and thin
      We're destined for each other
      Knowing we can reach the other side
      Far beyond the mountains of our pride
      Ridin' the good times is easy
      The hard times can tear you apart
      There'll be times in your heart
      When the feelin' is gone
      But ya keep on believing
      And ya keep holdin' on
      Baby, that's what love is all about
      Two hearts that find a way, somehow
      To keep the dream from dying
      It's something we could never live without
      If it takes forever
      We can work it out
      Beyond a shadow of a doubt
      Baby, that's what love is all about

      I realize you're seeing someone new
      But I don't believe she knows you like I do
      Your temperamental moody side
      The one you always try to hide from me
      But I know when you've got something on your mind
      You've been trying to tell me for the longest time
      But before you break my heart in two
      There's something I've been trying to say to you
      But the words get in the way
      There's so much I want to say
      But it's locked deep inside and if you look in my eyes
      We might fall in love again
      I won't even start to cry
      Before we say goodbye
      I'm trying to say I love you 
      But the words get in the way
      Your heart has always been an open door
      But baby I don't even know you anymore
      And despite the fact it's hurting me
      I know the time has come to set you free

      Joyce Godenzi
      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
      Joyce Mina Godenzi (traditional Chinese: 高麗虹; simplified Chinese: 高丽虹; pinyin: Gāo Lìhóng; Jyutping: Gou1 Lai6 Hung4; born 1965) was the winner of Miss Hong Kong 1984 and is a former Hong Kong film actress.
      Godenzi was encouraged to join the Miss Hong Kong pageant by her modeling agency, which had groomed one of its models, Maggie Cheung, to compete the year before. Heavily favored, she won the title, in addition to the Miss Photogenic award. After her unsurprising victory, many expected her to do well in Miss Universe 1984 in Miami (her father is Australian and her mother is ethnically Chinese). She was unplaced eventually, but did win third prize in the national costume competition.
      After her reign, Godenzi started a film career and was in several action films. She appeared in several films alongside kung fu film actor Sammo Hung before marrying him in 1995. She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the 1988 Hong Kong Film Awards for her role in Eastern Condors. Godenzi has since retired from acting and is now one of Jehovah's Witnesses.

In the UK the song peaked at #11 in April 1986.
       
      Kýrie, eléison means "Lord, have mercy" in Greek, and is a part of many liturgical rites in Eastern and Western Christianity. Kýrie, eléison; Christé, eléison; Kýrie, eléison is a prayer that asks "Lord, have mercy; Christ, have mercy; Lord, have mercy". According to Page the entire song is, essentially, a prayer.
      Kyrie eleison
      Kyrie eleison
      Kyrie
      The wind blows hard against this mountain side
      Across the sea into my soul
      It reaches into where I cannot hide
      Setting my feet upon the road
      My heart is old, it holds my memories
      My body burns a gemlike flame
      Somewhere between the soul and soft machine
      Is where I find myself again
      Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel
      Kyrie eleison, through the darkness of the night
      Kyrie eleison, where I'm going, will you follow?
      Kyrie eleison, on a highway in the light
      When I was young I thought of growing old
      Of what my life would mean to me
      Would I have followed down my chosen road
      Or only wished what I could be
      Kyrie eleison, down the road that I must travel
      Kyrie eleison, through the darkness of the night
      Kyrie eleison, where I'm going, will you follow?
      Kyrie eleison, on a highway in the light
      ...

    • All jokes have to have an element of truth ..... and THIS one certainly does!
    • It's a difficult doctrine, with an easy explanation. The Earth is about 3.5 billion years old. Each creative day is (3.5 billion divided by 7 = 500,000,000) about 500 million years.. Armageddon will occur at the "End of Days". Therefore ... "Stay Alive, 'till 500,001,975". See? The math works out perfectly, AND it agrees with fossils ! TA DA! Plus! --- the .ORG gets a LOT of "wiggle room". As Marvin Webster sez: "Ya'll think about it."    
    • Like you, I find it difficult to envision Christ's enthronement in 33 CE, for pretty much the same reasons as you. The urgency and keeping on the watch would almost seem cruel, if it was to last nearly 2000 years. Unless you think about those who have been waiting since the end of the 1800's and that have now died. Well for them, it was a lifetime of waiting anyway, so pretty much we could say that there would be no difference between someone waiting their whole lifetime in the middle ages and dying, than someone waiting their whole lifetime and dying now. I mean with respect to the individual. It seems like the scripture "Therefore, beloved ones, since you are awaiting these things, do your utmost to be found finally by him spotless and unblemished and in peace"  would have practical meaning for both individuals. I am assuming that most ordinary folk (at least in Christianized nations) were aware that if they lived a good and godly life they would land in heaven. That was the reward. But you do make a good point when you say that the holy writings were not accessible to ordinary folk, and most couldn't read so would they even know  what Peter wrote about in 2 Peter ch3? On top of that, "Christian" religion, Catholicism, did not advocate millennialism much, if at all. It wasn't until the protestant reformation in the 16 the century that millenialism was revived. Excerpt from the Catholic encyclopedia: (I don't expect you to read it all, just here for info) " Protestant fanatics (lol) of the earlier years, particularly the Anabaptists, believed in a new, golden age under the sceptre of Christ, after the overthrow of the papacy and secular empires. In 1534 the Anabaptists set up in Münster (Westphalia) the new Kingdom of Zion, which advocated sharing property and women in common, as a prelude to the new kingdom of Christ. Their excesses were opposed and their millenarianism disowned by both the Augsberg (art. 17) and the Helvetian Confession (ch. 11), so that it found no admission into the Lutheran and Reformed theologies. Nevertheless, the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries produced new apocalyptic fanatics (lol) and mystics who expected the millennium in one form or another: in Germany, the Bohemian and Moravian Brethren (Comenius); in France, Pierre Jurien (L'Accomplissement des Propheties, 1686); in England at the time of Cromwell, the Independents and Jane Leade. A new phase in the development of millenarian views among the Protestants commenced with Pietism. One of the chief champions of the millennium in Germany was I.A. Bengel and his disciple Crusius, who were afterwards joined by Rothe, Volch, Thiersch, Lange and others. Protestants from Wurtemberg emigrated to Palestine (Temple Communities) in order to be closer to Christ at His second advent. Certain fantastical sects of England and North America, such as the Irvingites, Mormons, Adventists, adopted both apocalyptic and millenarian views, expecting the return of Christ and the establishment of His kingdom at an early date. Some Catholic theologians of the nineteenth century championed a moderate, modified millenarianism, especially in connection with their explanations of the Apocalypse. So it would appear that anyone living from 33 C.E  up to the 16th century (apart from the disciples and early Christian congregation, and some early church fathers) would have no idea about even the existence of the coming of Christ as king of a 1000 year kingdom...  
    • No idea. The primary point was that people would tremble at such signs in the heavens. A space race with military implications was already hinted at in part of the yw book, which was already about Daniel and therefore had the king of the north in its sights.
    • Another sinister feather in the cap of the northern king. Did he want to tie in the Daniel prophesy?
    • Since you are asking, I'll take a cue from 1 Peter 3:15 and let you know what I'm thinking here. First of all we already believe that Jesus began to rule in 33. (I hope that was a mistake where you said 1933.) (Colossians 1:13-20) . . .He rescued us from the authority of the darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 by means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins. 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 16 because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him and for him. 17 Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist, 18 and he is the head of the body, the congregation. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might become the one who is first in all things; 19 because God was pleased to have all fullness to dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all other things by making peace through the blood he shed on the torture stake, whether the things on the earth or the things in the heavens. There is no indication here that the Kingdom of God's Son is any different than the Kingdom of God which had now become the Kingdom of his Christ. In fact, you might notice a couple of other parallels between Colossians and Revelation, including the hurling down of Satan (rescuing us from the authority of the darkness). Also, perhaps by coincidence, the immediate context of Colossians also discussed the salvation and the power and the Kingdom and the authority and the conquering through the blood of the Lamb. (Revelation 12:10, 11) . . .Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the Kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the accuser of our brothers has been hurled down, who accuses them day and night before our God! 11 And they conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their witnessing, and they did not love their souls even in the face of death. The idea that Satan was cast down in 33 is also repeated several times in the Greek Scriptures.
    • One unanticipated personal consequence of going digital is that I read nothing until the week it is to be considered at meeting. I have not read the new Ezekiel book yet. Back in the day of subscriptions, I would read that entire Watchtower at the nearest opportunity. Doesn’t happen anymore. I never think to download the latest until I need it. In recent years I’ve come to think a lot about Paul’s counsel to follow the pattern of the healthful words. At first, the healthful words are retrieved and spit out verbatim—it is the nature of much of our research. But if you’ve been around long enough, you soon to learn to pick up on the pattern and you can originate them yourself.  It is as Mike Tussin used to say, a real person from No Fake News whose name I changed with the most sordid upbringing and the most telling common sense. He would explain how it was with the GB (in the 1970s). “They study and study and one of them notices a point and discusses it with the others. After subsequent discussion reaches agreement, it gets into print. Now, in your own personal study, you may have noticed that point, too,” I can hear him explaining now, “and if this was Christendom, you’d go out and start your own religion over it.”  For a brief time, he was a roommate of mine. He drove me nuts in taking literally the admonition to read God’s Word “in an undertone day and night.” In time, he learned that he had better not do it in my presence.
