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

Време е за равносметка. Дълго тършувах из музикалните ‘архиви’ и преслушвах стари, нови, тотални хитове, любими колекцийки, уникални сингъли и ето на – класацията ми за най-добри албуми и песни за 2009г. е готова.

2009 бе годината на преотриване на жанрове. Първо това бе салсата като музика и танц. След това Jazz и незабравимия глас на Stacey Kent, както и така любимата ми Girl from Ipanema, която намерих в какви ли не кавъри.

2009 бе годината на мъжки вокали. Годината, в която се влюбих в alternative rock, в Крис Мартин и Coldplay, в Greg Laswell, Depeche Mode, Snow Patrol, The Fray и много други, публикувани през годината.

Много тотални хитове открих из саундтракове на разни американски сериали. Други пък от изтеглени случайно албуми, трети от приятели, дали ми цели папки с купища неща за преслушване.

Много уникални парчета чух през 2009. Както и много боклуци. В близкото бъдеще смятам да направя класация за ‘най-омразни и комерсиални песни’..

Тази година установих, че ушите ми са “перфорирани” и от известно време изпитвам ужасно раздразнение, нетърпимост и нетолерантност към някои парчета, изпълнители и цели стилове музика.

През 2009 не успях да опитам да слушам класическа музика, но ненаситността ми към нови изживявания в музикално отношение е безгранична, така че…2010 е пред мен  :).

Ето я и моята Top 10 Albums and Songs 2009 класация:

My Top 10 –> April 2009

My Top 10 for April 2009:

  1. Greg Laswell – Farewell
  2. Greg Laswell – Comes and Goes (in Waves)
  3. Coldplay – Amsterdam
  4. Coldplay – Trouble
  5. Coldplay – Gravity
  6. Rihanna feat. Justin Timberlake – Rehab
  7. Toni – Vsichko bilo e na sun
  8. Kanye West – Love Lockdown
  9. Gloria Estefan – Hoy
  10. Angelo Milli – La Mujer De Mi Hermano Theme

Знам. В една нормална класация Топ 10 не би трябвало да се повтарят изпълнителите. Но пък кой каза, че това е нормална класация :).

В моя музикален канал, когато открием нещо ново, то ни обсебва за определен период и нищо друго не се гледа и слуша. Дори бих казала, че класацията е доста разредена. Тоталният №1 е ясен – с пълно мнозинство (напълно заслужено) Greg Laswell заема първото място. Coldplay леко отстъпват челните места, но уверена съм – не за дълго.

Тук е моментът да благодаря на Мимз, без която тази класация не би била реалност. След като идеята за публикуване на едни и същи песни повече от веднъж набързо отпадна (засега :D), сметнахме, че класация на любими песни, публикувана веднъж месечно е по-добрият вариант.:)

Enjoy и Весели Празници на всички!

Sunday -> Farewell

A song from the album “Three Flights From Alto Nido”:

my love i cannot stay
my love i am running late
my love all has not been a waste
in a life that you have brought upon me

so farewell love this is goodbye let’s not take our time
so farewell love this isn’t getting any easier
and you let go to what the end will show
ba ba da ba da da da

my love i cannot stay
my love all has not been a waste
my love i am running late
from the life that you have brought upon me

so farewell love this is goodbye let’s not take our time
so farewell love this isn’t getting any easier
and you let go to what the end will show
ba ba da ba da da da

so farewell love this is goodbye let’s not take our time
so farewell love this isn’t getting any easier
and you let go but to what end will show
ba ba da ba da da da

i’m gonna sing this for you
i’m gonna sing this for you
i’m gonna sing this for you

so farewell love this is goodbye let’s not take our time
so farewell love this isn’t getting any easier
and you let go to what the end will show
ba ba da ba da da da

Saturday -> Sweet Dream

If I could write out my own dream
For the next time that I sleep
You’d be the first one that I see
And I the last one that you keep
The dream would go on and on
While we sway
Against all things thrown our way
And the morning would be so cruel
When it came
With sunshine and warmth to blame
For announcing the end of my sweet dream
For announcing the end of my sweet dream

Friday -> That It Moves

Another song from my favourite album by Greg Laswell “Three Flights From Alto Nido“:

Here’s a song that I waited to write with you
Think I’ll finish it instead
I got enough from you, love
That it finishes itself I regret

Oh but do you like the way that it moves?
Oh do you like the way that it moves?
Oh do you like the way that it moves?
Oh do you like the way that it moves?

Here’s a song that’s been in my head
So many things we said, never quite were sung
Take the melody, love
And forget the words if you must

Oh but do you like the way that it moves?
[ Greg Laswell Lyrics are found on http://www.songlyrics.com ]
Oh do you like the way that it moves?
Oh do you like the way that it moves?
Oh do you like the way that it moves?

Take your time with the meter
The rhythm will find you if you play it through
and if I’m there at the turn, dear
We can give an ending that I think this song is due

Cause I think I like the way that we moved?
Oh I think I like the way that we moved?
Oh did you like the way that we moved?
Oh did you like the way that we moved?
That we moved?

(Here’s a song that I waited to write with you
Think I’ll finish it instead)

Thursday -> How the Day Sounds

A great song from the album”Three Flights From Alto Nido” !!!

Oh who would have
Ever known this?
Could be this easy
I was a long, long way off
Then just like that it was over
Everything I knew of love
I was a long, long way off

And I think I like
How the day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song

Thank you for opening the window
The sky is clear as my mind is now
I was a long, long way off
Join me in welcoming the sun in
It’s much brighter
Than the night I hid in
I was a long, long way off

And I think I like how
The day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song
And I think I like how
The day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song

From a long way down

Yeah, it’s well worth the time
That it’s taken to get here now
Yeah, it’s well worth the time
That it’s taken to get here now

Ba da dum

So go ahead and bang a gong
Nothing can drown
Out the sound
And the whisper of my love

And I think I like how
The day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song
And I think I like how
The day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song
Through this new song
Through this new song

And the blinds
Have all been drawn
I know where I belong
Where I belong,
Where I belong
And the blinds
Have all been drawn
I know where I belong
Where I belong

And I think I like
How the day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song
And I think I like how
The day sounds
Like how the day sounds
Through this new song

Oh, won’t you sing along
Oh, my love
Won’t you sing along
Oh, won’t you sing along
Oh, my love
Won’t you sing along
Oh, won’t you sing along
Oh, my love
Won’t you sing along
Oh, won’t you sing along
Oh, my love
Won’t you sing along

Wednesday -> The One I Love

I’m all packed up now early in the morning
I’ll take my leave
I’ll bring your words along with me
Maybe one day they will mean something

For now they buzz and crumble down
A little bit too easily
From a time that I am not quite over
What the hell is wrong with me

I might be gone a little while
I guess we’ll see
I gotta make a home outta somewhere
And you’re all over this city

And it’ll take a flight to figure out
Where I’m gonna finally land
And the time it takes for me get there
I’ll be one to start again

But i should probably say that I’m unsure why I’m running
Running away from
The only thing i want
Yeah, i should probably say that I’m unsure why I’m running
Running away from the one I love

And if the plane lifts off
I’ll write you a letter, to say goodbye
And I will make it long and maybe lie just a little
Tell you that I’m doing fine

Then I’ll send it out and let things be
If not for you
For me and for the time I’ve spent foolishly loving thee

But I should probably say that I’m unsure why I’m running
Running away from
The only thing I want
Yeah, I should probably say that I’m unsure why I’m running
Running away from the one I love

Tuesday – And Then You

How my thoughts they spin me ’round
And how my thoughts they let me down
And how my thoughts they spin me ’round
And how my thoughts they let me down

How my dreams they spin me ’round
And how my dreams they let me down
And how my thoughts they spin me ’round
And how my thoughts they let me down

And then there’s you
Then there’s you
And then there’s you
Then there’s you

How my love it spins me ’round
And how my love it’s let me down
And how my thoughts they spin me ’round
And how my thoughts they let me down

And then there’s you
Then there’s you
And then there’s you
Then there’s you

You know I know who that you love
I’ve written it on myself, if you can’t tell
With a melody that climbs and then falls, then falls, then falls
Without you, without you

How my days they spin me ’round
And how today it sets me down
And how my days they spin me ’round
And how today it sets me down

Alongside you
Alongside you
Alongside you

Monday -> Comes and Goes

Отново съм завладяна. През последните няколко дни търся и слушам  всичко, до което се докопам на Greg Laswell.

Обожавам тази част. Намирането на нови за мен, невероятни парчета и изпълнители…

I can say I’m in love again. His name is Greg and he is great!!!

Тази седмица е посветена на него.

Enjoy!

This one’s for the lonely
The ones that seek and find
Only to be let down
Time after time

This one’s for the torn down
The experts at the fall
Come on friends get up now
You’re not alone at all

And this part was for her
This part was for her
This part was for her
Does she remember?

It comes and goes in waves, i….

This one’s for the faithless
The ones that are surprised
They are only where they are now
Regardless of their fight

This one’s for believing
If only for it’s sake
Come on friends get up now
Love is to be made

And this part was for her
This part was for her
This part was for her
Does she remember?

It comes and goes in waves,
I am only led to wonder why
It comes and goes in waves
I am only led to wonder why
Why I try

This is for the ones who stand
For the ones who try again
For the ones who need a hand
For the ones who think they can

It comes and goes in waves,
I am only led to wonder why
It comes and goes in waves
I am only led to wonder why
Why I try
