Hero for Sis Dalilah

'Hero' by Mariah Carey. I've been trying to practise this song. I can't seem to get the chord right for the part after the chorus. There is a term for it, but I really don't know what it is called. The lyric starts with.....'Lord knows...dreams are hard to follow.. My guess is its played and sung in a different key than the rest of the song, and maybe a note higher. The rest of the songs sounds just right in E.

Guess what I decided to do after several 'yet to be successful' attempts?

Hide and seek?

I want that too...!

Ready to pounce!

This song is to be dedicated to my new friend, Sis Dalilah. She is undergoing chemo treatments for a recurring breast cancer. Since I'm still struggling at it, let's just hear from the original singer instead.

Sis, I know you are a strong lady with a brave heart the minute I set eyes on you. It feels magical to meet you, versus meeting in cyber world.You are an inspiration to many. You'll be alright, and our prayers are always with you for a great recovery, insyaAllah.
And dont forget to take that lemongrass drink, possibly 8 times a day!

Sweet of you to dedicate the song to Raden. But will wait for your version later.

Salam ydiana,

Yes, I agree with Dato' - we will wait for your version, rendition, actually :)

Hi Dato

That's the least I could do for now. She's such a dear person, and so strong.

Oh dear, you're putting on the pressure. Thought I've escaped for now...hahaha

I am still trying to find the perfect chords. Still 50% there. :)

Salam Shah

Wah..really, another pressure. Oklah, I give in. Maybe not too soon, coz that particular chords is still a 'mystery' and a song in E key has 4 sharp keys.

Whatever.... ;)

hello y diana

a nice little kitten there.
i saw the pics before i read the text.
the song hero by m carey is nice but i dont know how it would sound as a piano piece. i bet must be nice too or maybe a little difficult to master...well some dreams are hard to follow...and the rest are "rojaks" (quote and unquote).

Hi Shirzad

Welcome back! Yeah, you probably haven't discovered how I got Honeybun. Long story.. :)

And this Hero, I believe I've got all the necessary chords by now. Not perfect, but enough to cary the song. Now just need to practise. I suppose Mariah Carey's songs are kind of challenging, that's why this is my first time playing her song, no, my second. First was My All.

Hey Mr. Tangerine Man (a parody by Dave Schipper © 2006 Rose Riversongs

Hey! Mr. Tangerine Man, place some hair on me,
I'm not sleepy, won’t you walk across my bladder.
Hey! Mr. Tangerine Man, place some hair on me,
In the early mornin’ please yowl a little louder

Though I know your evenin's venture
has returned mouse in mouth
Dropped neatly on the couch,
Left me blindly here to stand at the brink of gagging.
Your weariness amazes me,
You’re sleeping in a heep,
Baked in the sun shine heat
And your little head too dead for dreaming.

Now take this catnip for your
magic swirlin' trip,
Your senses will be slipped, your paws won't feel to grip,
Your tail will attack, daring you to be pouncing
You’re ready to go outside,
Your ready to come in
To go out, to come in, to go out and come in
And then back out again.


Though I see you runnin', spinnin', jumpin'
madly across the room,
It’s not away from anyone, it's just escapin' on the run
But it’s from the invisible foes your facin'.
Yes to dance beneath the human
is not against your pride
When there Kitty treats involved, or chunks of cheese not small
You think, there’s finally a use for him after all.
