Sad Songs (Say So Much) is a song written and performed by the British artist Elton John; the text is by Bernie Taupin.

It comes from the 1984 album Breaking Hearts (it is the tenth track) and looks like a song of clear pop rock; Elton, besides singing, plays both the keyboards and the synthesizer. Accompanying him is the Elton John Band, formed by bassist Dee Murray, guitarist Davey Johnstone and drummer Nigel Olsson, who also perform in the choirs. The text of Bernie (to the letter The Sad Songs (They Say So Tanto)) talks about how we need to listen to the radio of the classic blues when we are down.

Sad Songs (Say So Much), one of Elton John's best-known songs of the 1980s, was released as a single in May 1984 and reached a # 5 USA. The song was also used in a well-known advertisement of Sasson's jeans, which read "Sasson says so much!".

Zenzile Miriam Makeba (4 March 1932 – 9 November 2008), nicknamed Mama Africa, was a South African singer, actress, United Nations goodwill ambassador, and civil-rights activist. Associated with musical genres including Afropop, jazz, and world music, she was an advocate against apartheid and white-minority government in South Africa.

Born in Johannesburg to Swazi and Xhosa parents, Makeba was forced to find employment as a child after the death of her father. She had a brief and allegedly abusive first marriage at the age of 17, gave birth to her only child in 1950, and survived breast cancer.

Her vocal talent had been recognized when she was a child, and she began singing professionally in the 1950s, with the Cuban Brothers, the Manhattan Brothers, and an all-woman group, the Skylarks, performing a mixture of jazz, traditional African melodies, and Western popular music.

 In 1959, Makeba had a brief role in the anti-apartheid film Come Back, Africa, which brought her international attention, and led to her performing in Venice, London, and New York City. In London, she met the American singer Harry Belafonte, who became a mentor and colleague. She moved to New York City, where she became immediately popular, and recorded her first solo album in 1960. Her attempt to return to South Africa that year for her mother's funeral was prevented by the country's government.
English - M / Mario Lanza - Be My Love

Be My Love" is a popular song with lyrics by Sammy Cahn and music by Nicholas Brodzsky. Published in 1950, it was written for Mario Lanza  who sang it with Kathryn Grayson in the 1950 movie The Toast of New Orleans. The song was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1950 but lost out to “Mona Lisa”.

Lanza's 1950 recording of the song (released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 10-1561) was his first million-seller,  eventually selling over two million copies. It was on the Billboard charts for 34 weeks, going all the way to number one. It was the theme song for Lanza's radio program, The Mario Lanza Show (1951–52). It eventually became so firmly linked to him that he wearied of it and resorted to spoofing it in private.

William Orville Frizzell, known as Lefty Frizzell (March 31, 1928 – July 19, 1975), was an American country music singer-songwriter and honky-tonk singer. A vocalist who set the style of singing "the country way" for the generations that followed, Frizzell became one of the most successful and influential artists of country music throughout his career. He gained prominence in 1950 after two major hits, and throughout the decade was a very popular country performer. He smoothed out the rough edges of a honky tonk song by sounding out syllables longer and singing longer. Because of this, his music became much more mainstream without losing its honky-tonk attitude and persona.

Frizzell influenced a number of other country singers, including George Jones, Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, The Everly Brothers, Keith Whitley, Merle Haggard, and John Fogerty. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1982. After the death of Hank Williams in 1953, Frizzell released many songs that charted in the Top 10 of the Hot Country Songs charts. His success did not carry on into the 1960s, and after suffering from alcoholism, he died at age 47.
