The Songs Lyrics History
Song lyrics are known since the very beginning of song writing in ancient times. Mayan people have written lyrics on stones, for songs dedicated to gods and performed on rituals. Then in ancient Egypt lyrics have been found on papyrus sheets which represented songs that ancient pharaohs wanted to listen, and also song lyrics dedicated to Amon Ra the Egyptian god of the sun. Many song lyrics are now interpreted and translated to English or other languages and the originals writings are kept in museums around the world.
Song lyrics have taken their special place since the ending of the Baroko and special attention has been given since then. The Lyrics revolution appears with the fast development of technology where music has gained a special place in every culture. The early 60es, 70es and 90es bring the first lyrics that people actually paid special attention on, since they represented the emotional adventures, the life experience etc. Love has gained a special place in song lyrics since it's descriptions, stories and adventures are an enormous source of experience and inspiration.
With the appearance of computers, internet, mp3 players etc, lyrics have made yet another revolution in song writing and music it's self. Since the music is developing really fast and the number of different style is constantly increasing, lyrics again become more like one with the music and sometimes are hard to understand or remember. So people wanted to know every songs lyrics and started searching for them everywhere. The demand raised and soon lyrics for each and every song were distributed trough all the media.

Whitney Houstonâ€™s final movie, Sparkle, will hit theaters on August 17, 2012 and, of course, it will be bittersweet for the late singerâ€™s fans.Â The film follows the career of an aspiring vocal trio (Sparks, Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter) and features American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, as the daughter of a single mother (Houston).Â
The video is for the upbeat song from the movie, â€œCelebrateâ€? and is a sobering reminder of what weâ€™ve lost.Â The track begins with a verse sung by Houston who sounds stronger than she had in recent years but still pales in comparison to the powerhouse she was at the height of her career.Â
Still, the video, which features footage from the movie blended with new shots of the cast, takes advantage of the songâ€™s title and makes it as much about promoting the movie as about celebrating Houstonâ€™s life.Â Sparks told BET: "We planned on it being Whitney and me, but she's not here, so we wanted to make it a tribute to her." Â Sparks is shown wearing a Whitney Houston t-shirt at one point in the video and says â€œwe love you, Whitneyâ€? as the camera fades.
Sadly, the ladies not only were unable to appear together in the video, they also didnâ€™t get to record together either.Â "I would have loved to be in the studio with her, but with Whitney's schedule it got so crazy [we never] found the time to get together, so we recorded it separately," says Sparks. "But it was amazing to be able to go in after she had already finished her partâ€¦ It was so cool because you could just hear the smile in Whitney's voice when she was singing it."
Whitney Houston passed away by accidentally drowning in her hotel roomâ€™s bathtub on February 11, 2012.
