Sia – My Love

Early in the morning, late at night, everywhere, any time, this song is with me constantly..

If I don’t listen to it, I sing in my mind. When next track starts, I just press Previous..

Obsessed all over again. Can’t resist it.

I can only wish myself one such song every day and I will be a happy woman!

And when I ask myself if I feel happy now, I feel the urge to scream “YES!” (long-sigh-of-relief ;))

I feel good, insecure, somewhat unprepared, excited, impatient. With a hint for what is about to happen, a memory from what already did and with the desire for more , I wait to see what tomorrow will bring.

I’ve always liked the idea of the American proverb “Today is the first day of the rest of your life“. Starting – next Monday!

Am I ready for it?! Most probably not. Will I enjoy every second of it? You can bet I will!

Especially with such good music in the background.

My love, leave yourself behind
Beat inside me, leave you blind
My love, you have found peace
You were searching for release

You gave it all, into the call
You took a chance and
You took a fall for us

You came thoughtfully, loved me faithfully
You taught me honor, you did it for me

Tonight you will sleep for good
You will wait for me my love

Now I am strong (Now I am strong)
You gave me all
You gave all you had and now I am home

My love, leave yourself behind
Beat inside me, leave you blind
My love, look what you can do
I am mending, I’ll be with you

You took my hand added a plan
You gave me your heart
I asked you to dance with me

You loved honestly
Did what you could release
Aaaahhh oooh

I know you’re pleased to go
I won’t relieve this love

Now I am strong (Now I am strong)
You gave me all
You gave all you had and now I am home

My love, leave yourself behind
Beat inside me, I’ll be with you
oooooohh ooooh
Du du du ooooooh

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 :).

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:

Stacey Kent – They Can’t Take That Away From Me

От съвсем скоро се запалих по Jazz. Съвсем случайно.

Някак си попаднах на ето това клипче за Sofia’s People и се влюбих от пръв поглед в песента. За мой късмет авторът предвидливо беше написал името на изпълнителката и песента (макар и с лека грешка в името).

Аз естествено не се задоволих само с всичко, което Stacey е издала. Напротив. Гладът ми за Jazz дори още повече се засили.

Така се сдобих и с компилацията “In Love With Jazz” (The Ultimate Smooth Jazz Collection), която е повече от страхотна! Издадена е през 2008г. и е в цели три диска. Засега са ми достатъчни… След ден-два – повече 😉 (да, ненаситна съм!).

Не знам как по-рано не съм забелязала колко нежно, успокояващо въздействие има този стил музика. Трябва ви само едно преслушване на песента, за да разберете дали сте фен на Jazz или това просто не е вашият стил музика…:)

So give it a try! 😛

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No, No they can’t take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
The way you haunt my dreams
No, No they can’t take that away from me

We may never, never meet again, on that bumpy road to love
Still I’ll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life

No they can’t take that away from me

Our romance won’t end on a sorrowful note
Though by tomorrow you’re gone

The song has ended but as the song writer wrote
The melody lingers on
They may take you from me
I’ll miss your fond caress
But though they take you from me
I’ll still possess

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life

No they can’t take that away from me

По-добре ужасен край, отколкото ужас без край!

Докато пишех поредното писмо във фейс на Мимз и докато давах надявам се ценен съвет, сама прозрях нещо..

Връзките от разстояние не е задължително да бъдат нещо лошо. Дори обратното. Някои хора просто се заблужават едни други.. понякога напълно несъзнателно. Връзка от разстояние е Идеалният тест за дълбочина на чувствата. Дори за проверка дали има чувства изобщо…

Едни издържат теста…, други заменят играча. И в двата случая печелиш.

При първият вариант можеш наистина да повярваш на човека отсреща. Можеш да вярваш (разбира се известна доза съмнение никога не е излишна), че значиш достатъчно за него.

Разстоянието, обаче, може да промени всичко. Той може да си намери нова или да осъзнае, че чувствата му не са толкова силни.. Или и двете.. Този вариант не го пожелавам на никого, но в крайна сметка той също си има положителни страни, които обаче сигурно ще осъзнаеш на един по-късен етап…

След като спреш да страдаш и  престанеш да търсиш причините и вината в себе си.

След като престанеш да живееш в спомените и да съжаляваш за грешките, които дори не си сигурна дали си допуснала.

След като приемеш случилото се и наистина продължиш напред.

Чак тогава можеш да погледнеш на нещата и от друг ъгъл. И да осъзнаеш, че все пак може да е било и за твое добро. Въпреки всичката мъка, сълзи, терзания, въпреки всичката гадост, която си преживяла заради него, той все пак може и да ти е направил услуга.

По-добре ранна раздяла, отколкото продължителна заблуда. Разстоянието просто ти е показало, че не се занимаваш с правилния човек. Какъв по-лесен начин да тестваш силата на чувствата на човека отсреща.. А и твоите собствени…

По-добре ужасен край, отколкото Ужас без край!“, както чух да казват в едно предаване онзи ден…

Толкова е просто…

Stacey Kent – I’ve Got a Crush On You

I’ve got a crush on you, sweetie pie
All the day and night-time
Hear me sigh
I never had the least notion
That I could fall with so much emotion

Could you coo?
Could you care
For a cunning cottage we could share?
The world will pardon my mush
’cause I’ve got a crush, my baby, on you

(instrumental)

How glad the many millions of Timothys and Williams
Would be to capture me

But you had such persistence,
You wore down my resistance
I fell, and it was swell

You’re my big and brave and handsome Romeo
How I won you, I shall never, never know

It’s not that you’re attractive
But, oh, my heart grew active
When you came into view

I’ve got a crush on you, sweetie pie
All the day and night-time
Hear me sigh
I never had the least notion
That I could fall with so much emotion

Could you coo?
Could you care
For a cunning cottage we could share?
The world will pardon my mush
’cause I’ve got a crush, my baby, on you

Yes I’ve got a crush, my baby, on you
