U2 – With or Without You

A song by U2 from 1987.

Sounds as the mid 90’s to me, but what do I know?! (except the fact that Bono was HoT back then ;))

Enjoy it, one of their greatest songs for sure!

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side.
I wait for you.
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you.

Through the storm, we reach the shore
You gave it all but I want more
And I’m waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you.
I can’t live with or without you.

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give, and you give
And you give yourself away.

My hands are tied, my body bruised
She´s got me with nothing to win
And nothing left to lose.

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give, and you give
And you give yourself away.

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you.

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you
With or without you.

Back, but not for too long & Sparklehorse – Sea of Teeth

В България съм отново, във ваканция след успешно взети изпити. Не бях писала скоро в Отдушника си и тази вечер нахвърлях някакви неща, които ми се въртят в главата тези дни. Иска ми се да ги споделя и тук…

“06.07.2010

18:44

И ето ме от България, седнала на земята, както обичам да правя, с лаптоп на леглото, възглавница в скута и като background – току що изтегления саундтрак на филма, който гледах досега – Remember me с Робърт Патисън.

Не знам какво да пиша. Изпитите минаха, имам 7, 12, 7. Прибрах се успешно, майка се опита да поплаче на летището, но аз я разсеях и прекъснах с ‘Хайде стига, къде са ми черешите?! 😉

Още на следващия ден изфучахме от вкъщи рано рано по задачи и срещи с приятели.

Още от първия ден искам да се върна обратно…. не ми се остава тук.

Искам Mr. X, искам си работата в клуба, искам си квартирата в Бирк, всичко си искам…

И толкова дълго време ще остана тук, че се опасявам, че отново ще свикна и накрая няма да ми се прибира…;(

Онзи ден Mr. X ми прати мейл във фейсбук, отговорих му, а после си говорихме в скайп. Разни дългосрочни планове се въртят в тази моя главица, а съм си обещала такива неща повече не! В някои отношения е по-добре да се оставиш на течението, а не да предвиждаш и плануваш всеки следващ миг.

И колкото и да ми говори Mr. X как иска да пътуваме някъде през ваканцията след първия семестър (януари 2011?!), аз толкова далеч в бъдещето отказвам да гледам!

И се наслаждавам на моментите сега. Жалко, че него го няма в тях.

Което ми напомня, че трябва да му направя клипче с гледката от прозореца ми. Продължавам да се удивявам на кофти пътищата, сгради, въобще типична българска градска среда (как бързо се отвиква….) и само се подсмихвам и си мисля как на всеки ъгъл той би казал нещо от сорта на „This is so illegal”…

Мисля си как нямаме бъдеще с него и се чудя понякога, гледайки отстрани на всичко – защо продължавам да съм с него, при пложение, че “трябва да търся нещо сериозно…” както му е казвано напоследък.

Но след такъв филм, в който героят живееше за мига, безотговорно, правеше всичко, без да мисли какви последствия ще има за бъдещето му и накрая умря в една от кулите близнаци на 11.09.2001, всичко изглежда някак безсмислено. Това ‘търсене на нещо сериозно’ приемам по-скоро като пропиляно време, в което съм можела да правя това, което искам, а не това което се очаква.

Затова сега ще се наслаждавам на всяка секунда тук, сама в Бг, и после, евентуално с Mr.  X в Дания. Ако не с него, дори и сама, ще живея за мига, ще се радвам на всичко, от което повечето се оплакват.

Ще се смея, ще плача, ще припадам от смях, ще лудувам, ще сияя с усмивката си, ще се радвам на рядко появяващото се слънце в Дания, ще правя всичко всичко, докато мога

Следващата песен от саундртака започна с думите ‘Can you feel the wind…’

Искам да усещам вятъра и да затварям очи всеки път, когато съм навън, да чувствам всяка секунда като нещо специално, защото е!

Искам да вдишвам живот и да издишвам щастие и задоволство. От вятъра, от живота, от студа, от жегата, от слънцето, от морето, от бриза на брега, от музиката в ушите ми.

Искам да съм постоянно обградена от стойностна, наелектрезирваща музика, която да ме кара да казвам и пиша неща в моменти, в които нямам какво да кажа. Като сега.”

——————————————————————-

Ето я и песента, която споменах по-горе…

Can you feel the wind of venus on your skin?

Can you taste the crush of a sunset’s dying blush?

Stars will always hand in summer’s bleeding veils

Can you feel the rings of saturn on your finger?

Can you taste the ghosts who shed their creaking hosts?

But seas forever boil, trees will turn to soil

Stars will always hand in summer’s bleeding veils

But seas forever boil, trees will turn to soil

Reamonn – Supergirl

You can tell by the way, she walks that she’s my girl,
You can tell by the way, she talks she rules the world.
You can see in her eyes that no one is her Chi,
She’s my girl, my Supergirl.

And then she’d say: It’s OK, I got lost on the way
But I’m a Supergirl and Supergirls don’t cry.

And she’d say: It’s all right, I got home late last night
But I’m a Supergirl and Supergirls just fly.

And then she’d say, that nothing can go wrong,
When you’re in love, what can go wrong?
And then she’d laugh the night turns into the day,
Pushing her fears further along.

And then she’d say: It’s OK, I got lost on the way
But I’m a Supergirl and Supergirls don’t cry.

And she’d say: It’s all right, I got home late last night
But I’m a Supergirl and Supergirls just fly.

Then she’d shout down the line, tell me she’s got no more time
Cause she’s a Supergirl and Supergirls don’t cry.
And then she’d scream in my face, tell me to leave, leave this place
Cause she’s a Supergirl and Supergirls just fly.

She’s a Supergirl, a Supergirl,
She’s sowing seeds, she’s burning trees,
She’s sowing seeds, she’s burning trees,
Yes, she’s a Supergirl, a Supergirl,
A Supergirl, my Supergirl.

The Temper Trap – Love Lost

Extremely good and refreshing video! 😉

Our love was lost
And now we found, it
Our love was lost
And hope was gone

Our love was lost
But now we found, it
And if you flash your heart
I won’t deny it

I promise
(I promise)

Your walls that run
To cold to touch, yeah
Your walls I rub
To hard to climb

I know its hard
But I can still hear it beating
So if you flash your heart
I won’t mistreat it

I promise
(I promise)
(I promise)

Our, love, was lost
In the rumor around the things
You, You’ve been dreaming of
Keep me in mind
When your ready
I am here
To take you every-time

Our love was lost
Lost
Lost
Lost
Lost
Lost
Lost
Lost
Our love was lost
But now it’s found

My Top 10 Albums and Songs for 2009 [EN]

It is time to draw the line.

I was searching around my music archives and I was listening to old, new, total hits, favorite collections, unique singles and there it is – my rating for Top albums and songs for 2009 is ready.

2009 was the year of Rediscovering of genres. The first one was salsa as music and dance. Afterwords – Jazz and the unforgettable voice of Stacey Kent, as well as my favorite one – Girl from Ipanema which you can find performed by numerous artists.

2009 was the year of male vocals. The year I fall in love with alternative rock, with Cris Martin and Coldplay, with Greg Laswell, Depeche Mode, Snow Patrol, The Fray and so many others I’ve published during the year.

A lot of total hits I discovered among soundtracks of some American serial movies. Others – from randomly downloaded albums, thirds – from friends who were kind enough to give me folders with tons of stuff to listen to and select of…

2009 was the year of many unique tracks. It was as well the year of ‘junk’ music. I am soon planning to write a post about ‘The worst most hideous and commercial songs ever‘ ..

In 2009 I realized that my ears are like ‘perforated‘ and for some time I feel a terrible irritation and intolerance and I am simply unable to listen to some tracks, performers and music styles…

In 2009 I didn’t manage to listen to classical music, but my appetite for new musical experiences is infinite, so … 2010 is ahead of me :).

So there it is..
My Top 10 Albums and Songs for 2009 are:

Snow Patrol – Make This Go On Forever

I just randomly selected this song with the idea that I won’t possibly like it more than favorites for life like “Chasing Cars” or “You could be happy”..

But guess what .. I Did! 🙂

Snow Patrol.. has this unique own style of making music, which totally “fits me” right now and I think I will fall in love with almost every single one of their songs…

What do we know about this band? It turns out they are Northern Irish alternative rock band, formed in 1994, but known worldwide since 2003 when they release their album “Final Straw“.

It turns out all of their songs which I am familiar and in love with, are from the same album – “Eyes Open” published in 2006.

Keep in touch if you want to hear more of this album and band,which I believe just entered my ‘Most Favorite Albums for the year‘ folder :).

But now back to this amazing performance of theirs..


Please don’t let this turn into something it’s not
I can only give you everything I’ve got
I can’t be as sorry as you think I should
But I still love you more than anyone else could

All that I keep thinking throughout this whole flight
Is it could take my whole damn life to make this right

This splintered mast I’m holding on won’t save me long
Because I know fine well that what I did was wrong

The last girl and the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
The weight of water, the way you told me to look past everything I had ever learned
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

We have got through so much worse than this before
What’s so different this time that you can’t ignore
You say it is much more than just my last mistake
And we should spend some time apart for both our sakes

The last girl and the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
The weight of water, the way you told me to look past everything I had ever learned
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

The last girl and the last reason to make this last for as long as I could
First kiss and the first time that I felt connected to anything
The weight of water, the way you told me to look past everything I had ever learned
The final word in the final sentence you ever uttered to me was love

And I don’t know where to look
My words just break and melt
Please just save me from this darkness [x2]

And I don’t know where to look
My words just break and melt
Please just save me from this darkness [x2]

Alexi Murdoch – Towards The Sun

Another song from the latest episode of One Tree Hill..

… the movie that I couldn’t stop watching during cold winter nights in Varna (especially if exams were near).

… the movie whose soundtrack I can always have the mood to listen to..

… the movie with real, complicated relationships in..

… a movie where you can feel every heartbeat, every trill, every fear, every loss, every hope and every dream..

… the movie whose episodes I am still impatiently waiting for..

… A movie that makes a difference and leaves a mark..

One Tree Hill.

See the clouds are creeping towards the sun
I’m drifting away unseen by anyone
The light is turning gray, the day is done

The water is cold and heavy on my mind
I dreamed of walking with you but I fell behind
Looking for a rose I could not find

Now the ice is stirring and spring is near
There is no one calling but the sound is clear
Though I’m not yet gone, I’m still not here
