Piece by Piece – Kelly Clarkson

Piece by Piece is another fantastic song from Kelly Clarkson.


“Piece By Piece”

And all I remember is your back
Walking towards the airport, leaving us all in your past
I traveled fifteen hundred miles to see you
Begged you to want me, but you didn’t want to

But piece by piece he collected me
Up off the ground where you abandoned things, yeah
Piece by piece he filled the holes
That you burned in me at six years old
And you know,
He never walks away
He never asks for money,
He takes care of me
He loves me
Piece by piece he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and a father could… stay

And all of your words fall flat
I made something of myself and now you wanna come back
But your love—it isn’t free, it has to be earned
Back then I didn’t have anything you needed so I was worthless

But piece by piece he collected me
Up off the ground, where you abandoned things, yeah
Piece by piece he filled the holes
That you burned in me at six years old
And you know,
He never walks away
He never asks for money,
He takes care of me
‘Cause he loves me
Piece by piece he restored my faith
That a man can be kind and a father could stay

Piece by piece [6x]

Piece by piece I fell far from the tree
I will never leave her like you left me
And she will never have to wonder her worth
Because unlike you I’m going to put her first
And you know,
He’ll never walk away,
He’ll never break her heart
He’ll take care of things,
He’ll love her
And piece by piece he’ll restore my faith
That a man can be kind and a father should be great

Piece by piece [3x]

Bruno Mars – Just The Way You Are

Love listening Bruno Mars – Just the Way You Are. Enjoy the different versions here, from Dancing to Singing!

“Just The Way You Are”

Ohhhhh ohhhhhh ohhhhhh ohhhhhhh

[Verse 1:]
Oh, her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they’re not shinin’
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying
She’s so beautiful
And I tell her everyday
Yeah

I know, I know
When I compliment her she won’t believe me
And it’s so, it’s so
Sad to think that she don’t see what I see
But every time she asks me, “Do I look okay?”
I say,

[Chorus:]
When I see your face (face, face…)
There’s not a thing that I would change
‘Cause you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are)
And when you smile (smile, smile…)
The whole world stops and stares for a while
‘Cause, girl, you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are).
Yeah

[Verse 2:]
Her lips, her lips
I could kiss them all day if she’d let me
Her laugh, her laugh
She hates but I think it’s so sexy
She’s so beautiful
And I tell her everyday,

Oh you know, you know, you know
I’d never ask you to change
If perfect’s what you’re searching for
Then just stay the same
So don’t even bother asking if you look okay
You know I’ll say,

[Chorus:]
When I see your face (face, face…)
There’s not a thing that I would change
‘Cause you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are)
And when you smile (smile, smile…)
The whole world stops and stares for a while
‘Cause, girl, you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are)

The way you are
The way you are
Girl, you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are)

[Chorus:]
When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
‘Cause you’re amazing (amazing)
Just the way you are (are)
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for a while
‘Cause, girl, you’re amazing
Just the way you are

Yeah

All I ask of you(Phantom of the opera)

The first new post in 2016 is about music.

“All I ask of you” from Phantom of the Opera. It’s a wonderful classic. I love Josh Groban featuring Kelly Clarkson version the most. The 2004 movie version, Sarah Brightman & Michael Ball, so do the Michael Ball & Sierra Boggess verison are fantastic.

All I ask (Phantom of the opera) Lyric

[Both] denotes Christine and Raoul.

(Raoul)
No more talk of darkness
Forget these wide-eyed fears
I’m here, nothing can harm you
My words will warm and calm you

Let me be your freedom
Let daylight dry your tears
I’m here, with you, beside you
To guard you and to guide you

(Christine)
Say you’ll love me every waking moment
Turn my head with talk of summer time
Say you need me with you now and always
Promise me that all you say is true
That’s all I ask of you

[Raoul]
Let me be your shelter
Let me be your light
You’re safe, no one will find you
Your fears are far behind you

[Christine]
All I want is freedom
A world with no more night
And you, always beside me
To hold me and to hide me

[Raoul]
Then say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime
Let me lead you from your solitude
Say you need me with you here, beside you
Anywhere you go, let me go too
Christine, that’s all I ask of you

[Christine]
Say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime
Say the word and I will follow you

[Both]
Share each day with me, each night, each morning

[Christine]
Say you love me

[Raoul]
You know I do

[Both]
Love me, that’s all I ask of you.

(They kiss. Raoul lifts Christine off her feet, into his arms and holds her)

[Both]
Anywhere you go, let me go too
Love me, that’s all I ask of you

[Phantom] ( All I Ask Of You Reprise)
I gave you my music, made your song take wing.
And now, how you’ve repaid me, denied me and betrayed me.
He was bound to love you, when he heard you sing.
(Sobs)Christine, Christine.

[Raoul & Christine]
Say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime
Say the word and I will follow you
Share each day with me, each night, each morning…

[Phantom]
You will curse the day you did not do!
All that the Phantom asked of you!

Bloomberg West Apr 10 – Apple Watch Pre-order Begin

Bloomberg West Top Stories:

(1) GE Exiting most of the finance sells $26.5B worth of real estate
(2) Blackstone buying Excel Trust in real estate expansion
(3) Hillary Clinton to launch campaign on Sunday
(4) Congress seeks oversight of any Iran nuclear deal
(5) Nokia may sell maps business

Bloomberg West The Lead:

Apple Watch pre-orders begin. Apple’s first entirely new product since iPad. Apple Watch on pre-sale display around the world. There are lines of different locations including Australia and Japan. Apple even encouraging people to make appointments for those tryout.

This approach of selling, the line in front of apple store is purely a PR gimmick but the press including us show up every time they release new product to use those lines to make us look like that the products are popular and they can’t manage the demand.

How are they using price to convey image?

Arif Mohammed: Apple is merging the technology with fashion, what apple understand there is wide variety spectrum of tast, and this is how they gone from this pricing strategy rank from $349 to $17,000 dollars, which I actually thinking this is a mistake because first, apple will come of next better version. The big question is spending 1000 dollars which is disposable, so when one year the fashion look a little bit outdated and the technology will be inferior. Secondly, we upgraped of iPhone all the time, that’s subsidized by carriers, and you won’t have the subsidy right now. The question is try and buy now or wait for a year? And that’s the big challenge facing with this pricing strategy.

Bloomberg West Apr 7 – What has Andrew Mason Learned Since Leaving Groupon?

bloomber-andrewmasonaftergroupon

(via http://www.bloomberg.com/news/videos/2015-04-07/co-founder-of-groupon-launches-audio-tour-app )

We launched (Detour) actually about two months ago in the App Store. When we talked to that it was closed to beta we were doing. We’ve got 9 Detour launched just in the San Francisco and Bay area. Each one last about 45 minutes and it takes you through a different park of the city and hope it see it through somebody else’s eye. This is a very high quality walk where a tour guide is telling you where to go. Your phone is in your pocket the whole time.

We try to find somebody who were not just traditionally tour guide but people who are real members of the community, for example, we found a fishman and it takes you beind the tour and show you what life is really.

We did one incorporation with radio lab down in Austin for SXSW but other than that we are just in San Fancisco.

(The favorite tour) they are all different. There is one we did recently that I think is really interesting that’s actually about trash. And it takes your down to the bayfill area of San Fancisco. There are a lot of trash processing happened. And he talks about the city’s goal be landfill neutral by the end of the decade. But it’s not what you typically think about when you go on a tour but it’s an amazing experience when you really learn a lot and you really entertain. It’s an example of the type of way trying to push the media.

(how big is the market) I’ve never thought of the thing in that way, if someobody ask how big is the market was for Groupon at the very begining, I don’t think they will predict that we will have a 5 billion dollar company today. I just think about this is somebody people want, is that somebody that I want and this is the idea that I had whenever I would travel even back before Groupon and feeling that it’s better way then being in a tour group, a batch of people that you don’t really know, trap in this three hours experience. There has been a better way to learn about this places that allow people to explore and technology is finally reaching the tipping point where you can put the phone in your pocket provide this kind of experience.

(1) GoDaddy’s Market Debut in the New York Stock Exchange
GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving spoke to Bloomberg in the floor stock exchange about that cash flow. GoDaddy raises $460M in share sale.

Irving: The reason we pay so much attention to cash flow and run the business on cash is because on the gap recognition basis, you pay for everything upfront and you actually recognize revenue rapidly over the year so you creating a gap unintented between the way you bring cash and the way we reported, so we run on the cash flow basis. Frankly investor understand a SAAS basis business and cash flow management, our conversion in cash and even the cash is very strong and even with that gap differences in income.

Ruhle: Can you help us to understand GoDaddy is a brand company, so many people know who you are but they don’t understand what you do? When I look at your branding strategy and the advertisement that you put out, they seem totally disconnected from the company, so can you help us to understand it?

Irving: I won’t say that if you went back a decade. The first ad that GoDaddy ran are founder Bob the billiant marketer, actually it ran out and get a lot of attention for domain name and very few people know what a domain name was. So Bob had a method of getting people’s attention, it was more than a shock, an approach to creating an attention and awareness and brand awareness absolutely searched, the business search, Bob grew that business to a billion dollar and revenue and that attention. Now folks as you said know the GoDaddy name, we have 81% brand recognition today. And over the last two years, we took a very very big turn in our advertising strategy, how we portrait both our company and our customers. The last two years we have very different advertising, we had shown small businesses in their environment, fighting the good fight, trying to make sure that they can run by themselves. And that’s what GoDaddy does. We help their company take their ideas online and run their business as digital entity.
