And now a classic from the 80s performed by the band One Direction

  Which one do you prefer?


 


Liam: 
Let's dance in style, 
Let's dance for a while, 
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies, 
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst, 
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not? 

Harry: 
Let us die young or let us live forever, 
We don't have the power but we never say never, 
Sitting in a sandpit, 
Life is a short trip, 
The music's for the sad man. 

Todos: 
Forever young, 
I wanna be, 
Forever young, 
Do you really want to live forever, 
Forever, 
Forever young. 

Nial: 
Some are like water, some are like the heat, 
Some are like the melody of some other beat, 
But sooner or later they all will be gone, 
Why don't they stay young? 

Harry: 
It's hard to get old without a cause, 
I don't want to perish like a fading horse, 
It's like diamonds in the sun, 
And diamonds are forever. 

Todos: 
Forever young, 
I wanna be, 
Forever young, 
Do you really want to live forever, 
Forever, 
Or never? 

Forever young, 
I wanna be, 
Forever young (forever), 
Do you really want to live forever, 
Forever, 
Or never? 

Liam: 
So many adventures couldn't happen today, 
So many songs we forgot to play, 
So many dreams are swinging out of the blue, 
We let 'em come true. 

Harry, Louis y Liam: 
Forever young, 
I wanna be, 
Forever young, 
Do you really want to live forever, 
Forever, 
Or never? 

Todos: 
Forever young, 
I wanna be, 
Forever young Do you really want to live forever, 
Forever, 
Or never? 

Forever young, 
I wanna be, 
Forever young (forever), 
Do you really want to live forever, 
Forever, 
Or never? 

Forever young, 
I wanna be, 
Forever young (forever), 
Do you really want to live forever (forever), 
Forever (forever), 
Forever young...

FORMER BRITISH PRIME MINISTER MARGARET THATCHER DIES


London, Apr 8 (EFE).- Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died from a stroke, her spokesman, Lord Bell, said Monday. She was 87.
"It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning," Lord Bell said.
Thatcher, known as the "Iron Lady" because of her tough leadership style, was the United Kingdom's first female prime minister.
The conservative former prime minister, who was in office from 1979 to 1990, introduced free-market reforms in Britain, privatizing state-owned companies and dismantling the socialist system implemented after World War II by the Labor Party.
Thatcher led Britain to victory over Argentina in the 1982 Falklands War.
The former prime minister, who entered politics in 1959 with her election to Parliament from Finchley, in London, had suffered from Alzheimer's disease and had a series of strokes in recent years.
Thatcher, born Margaret Hilda Roberts, had a meteoric rise in politics after being elected to Parliament, taking the leadership of the Conservative Party in 1975 from Prime Minister Edward Heath, who was in office from 1970 to 1974.
She led the Tories to victory in the 1979 general elections and again in 1983 and 1987.
Thatcher, who was born on Oct. 13, 1925, in the northern English city of Grantham, came from a middle class family.
