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  :).

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)
