My Lucky Number 7 [EN]

After being dared by my favorite Morko in a post of his, I decided to prove once again that I have an excellent music taste.

I will do that by creating a special list putting a lot of efforts and a spoon of good memories in its creation. An extraordinary and precious list containing the seven albums I would take on a desert island with me

it is important to keep in mind that you should not just include your favorites for the moment, but music that has passed the test of time and that you could listen to for at least another 10 years…

Now that is what I call a ‘tough job‘.. so many great artists, albums and song.. How the hell can I restrict myself to only 7 albums?! Only if they were albums which I created myself during the years, playlists from my MP3-Player or some total favorites for life… But No, rules are rules, have to be followed..

It was still a great pleasure and even an honor to select My Lucky Number 7.. I made that choice rather quickly, without having second thoughts or reconsidering my choice. Who knows, that may lead to some corrections in time..:)

(That was what I wrote more than 2 years ago, but now when I decided to translate the article, I still feel the same way, just can add some extra albums like most by Coldplay, Greg Laswell etc., but definitely cannot remove anyone of those stated beneath…;))

So here they are – My Top 7 Albums, which I would take with me on a desert island, my 7 little music treasures:

1) Madonna – Ray of light

ray_of_light-1.jpg

All the best by Madonna gathered in one – this is what this album represents for me.. I cannot chose one single song that I favorite the most.. Ray of Light, Nothing Really Matters, The Power of Good-bye, Drowned world (Substitute for love), Frozen, Candy Perfumed girl, Little star, Mer Girl…. simply Madonna ..

2) Ace of base – The Bridge

ace-of-base.jpg

Ever since I was a short, skinny, approximately 10-years-old girl, I was singing their song all the time in my room, knowing by heart every single one from this album. I had and played that tape millions of times, with and without any special reason. I was so obsessed, that I put a poster of the album cover on my door… I was so crazy about them.. 😉

  1. Beautiful Life
  2. Never Gonna Say I’m Sorry
  3. Lucky Love (Original Version)
  4. Edge of Heaven
  5. Strange Ways
  6. Ravine
  7. Perfect World
  8. Angel Eyes
  9. Whispers In Blindness
  10. My Déjà Vu
  11. You and I
  12. Wave Wet Sand
  13. Que Sera
  14. Just ‘N’ Image
  15. Lucky Love (Acoustic Version)”
  16. Experience Pearls
  17. Blooming 18

3) Chicane – Behind the Sun

When I was younger, back at the time when I still didn’t have my favorite MP3-Player (which I feel naked without right now), I was playing Chicane on my stereo and was falling asleep under the sounds of Offshore and Saltwater now those were some sweet dreams :))

chicane-behind-the-sun.jpg080_behind_the_sun.jpg

4) Madonna – Music

A little more different sound by Madonna. My favorites are What it feels like for a girl, Beautiful Stranger, American Pie, Music and Don’t tell Me.

5) City of Angels OST

I downloaded the soundtrack of the ‘City of Angels’ movie after watching it for dozen times and they all immediately became unbreakable part of my MP3-Player and of my Total Favorites for Life Folder… Those are Alanis Morisette – Uninvited, Goo Goo Dolls – Iris, U2 – If God Will Send His Angels, Sarah McLachlan – Angel, Paula Cole – Feelin’ Love. I also have to mention Gabriel Yared, who has 4 unforgettable tracks in it…

6) Cafe del Mar Vol.5 (1998)

I was hesitating between few volumes of Cafe del mar, but Vol.5 from ’98 is definitely outstanding among all with its obvious uniqueness and different sound. Attention deserve most tracks like Mumbai Theme Tune, More Than Ever People, Appreciation (Radio Mix), Tout Est Bleu (Original Ame Strong S.A. Remix), Talking With Myself ’98 (Canny Remix) !!! and most of all Close Cover by Wim Mertens!

Simply Inspiring!

7) Enigma – Love Sensuality Devotion – Greatest Hits

Last but not least, this album by my favorite Enigma I will leave without a comment, because I had already said what it means to me in another article (only in BG unfortunately).

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:

Връщане към миналото

Има ли смисъл да се връщаме към миналото ?!

Пред мен стои една дилема -да се срещна отново с единствената си голяма любов, която някога съм имала, въпреки, че той е обвързан. Всъщност точно заради настоящата си връзка не сме заедно. Та имаме възможност и той иска да се срещнем.

И аз съм на косъм да се съглася. Нали все пак най-добрият начин да устоиш на изкушението, е да му се отдадеш ..;)

Но при мисълта, че на тази среща ще отидем с различни очаквания и представи, ми се свива нещо в корема. При спомена за всичко хубаво, което ни се случи и идеята за всичко останало, което можехме да имаме, потрепервам.

Страхувам се, че когато го видя, отново ще поискам да съм с него, а той – в края на деня все пак ще иска да се върне при нея…

Колко искам да съм в главата му и да разбера зашо продължава да ме търси, защо не ме оставя на мира и защо настоява да се срещнем. Откъдето и да го погледна, само една мисъл се върти в главата ми – отново ще страдаш, ако го видиш.

В същото време колкото болезнено си мисля, че ще бъде, толкова силно искам да се случи.

Не съм ли абсолютна мазохистка?! :/

Madonna – I Want You

I, yi yi yi (repeat 3 times)

Chorus:

I want you the right way
I want you, but I want you to want me too,
Want you to want me baby
Just like I want you

Da da, da da, da da da

I’ll give you all the love I want in return
But half a love is all I feel, sweet darling
It’s too bad, it’s just too sad
You don’t want me no more
But I’m gonna change your mind
Some way, somehow

(chorus)

Da da, da da, da da da

One way love is just a fantasy
To share is precious, pure and fair
Don’t play with something you should cherish for life
Oh baby, don’t you wanna care?
Ain’t it lonely out there?

(chorus)

I want you the right way
I want you, but I want you to want me too,
Want me baby, just like I want you.
Da da, da da, da da da

(Spoken:)
I want you, the right way
Want me baby
Don’t play with something you should cherish for life

Madonna – Miles Away

I love this! 🙂

I just woke up from a fuzzy dream
You never would believe the things that I have seen
I looked in the mirror, and I saw your face
You looked right through me; you were miles away

All my dreams, they fade away
I’ll never be the same
If you could see me the way you see yourself
I can’t pretend to be someone else

You always love me more
Miles away
I hear it in your voice when you’re
Miles away
You’re not afraid to tell me
Miles away
I guess we’re at our best when we’re
Miles away

So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away

When no one’s around, and I have you here
I begin to see the picture, it becomes so clear
You always have the biggest heart
When we’re six thousand miles apart

Too much of no sound
Uncomfortable silence can be so loud
Those three words are never enough
When it’s long distance love

You always love me more
Miles away
I hear it in your voice when you’re
Miles away
You’re not afraid to tell me
Miles away
I guess we’re at our best when we’re
Miles away

So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away

I’m alright, don’t be sorry, but it’s true
When I’m gone, you realize
That I’m the best thing to happen to you

You always love me more
Miles away
I hear it in your voice when you’re
Miles away
You’re not afraid to tell me
Miles away
I guess we’re at our best when we’re
Miles away

You always love me more
Miles away
I hear it in your voice when you’re
Miles away
You’re not afraid to tell me
Miles away
I guess we’re at our best when we’re
Miles away

So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away
So far away, so far away…

My Lucky Number 7

След като любимият ми Морко така директно ме предизвика в последния си пост, няма как да не поема хвърлената ръкавица и да докажа и затвърдя мнението, че имам отличен музикален вкус..:) За какво говоря ли ?! За един списък.. сътворен с много труд и лъжичка хубави спомени.. Един необикновен и ценен списък със седемте албума, които бих взела със себе си на необитаем остров…

“…важна забележка е, че в списъка трябва да влязат не просто най-любимите ви музикални албуми за момента, а музика, която е издържала проверката на времето и бихте продължили да слушате с удоволствие (само нея) още поне 10 години…

На това му викам аз “нелека задача“… Толкова много стойностна музика, толкова различни състави, албуми и песни…Как по дяволите ще се огранича само в 7 ?!?! Поне да бяха албуми, който съм си правила сама през годините, playlist-и от плейъра ми, мои си вечни фаворити…. Но не, правилата са си правила, трябва да се спазват..И все пак беше истинско удоволствие и дори чест да селектирам 7-те най… Направих избора доста набързо, кой знае…след време може да са нужни корекции..;)

Но за момента Моите Топ 7 Албума, които бих взела на необитаем остров, са следните 7 малки съкровища:

1) Madonna – Ray of light

ray_of_light-1.jpg

Kултов за мен, най-доброто на Мадона в едно! Не знам коя да посоча като най-най, няма конкретна песен, която да доминира над останалите…Ray of Light, Nothing Really Matters, The Power of Good-bye, Drowned world(Substitute for love), Frozen, Candy Perfumed girl, Little star, Mer Girl….просто Madonna ..

2) Ace of base – The Bridge

ace-of-base.jpg

Още от дете с дезодорант в ръка им припявах..Обожавах този албум, отраснах с него, въртяла съм касетката им стотици пъти, с и без повод. Дотолкова се бях вманиачила, че залепих плакат на обложката на албума на вратата на стаята си.. 🙂 Луда работа..

  1. Beautiful Life
  2. Never Gonna Say I’m Sorry
  3. Lucky Love (Original Version)
  4. Edge of Heaven
  5. Strange Ways
  6. Ravine
  7. Perfect World
  8. Angel Eyes
  9. Whispers In Blindness
  10. My Déjà Vu
  11. You and I
  12. Wave Wet Sand
  13. Que Sera
  14. Just ‘N’ Image
  15. Lucky Love (Acoustic Version)”
  16. Experience Pearls
  17. Blooming 18

3) Chicane – Behind the Sun

Като по-малка, когато нямах това малко чудо – любимият ми Mp3-player (без който в момента се чувствам…полу гола), си пусках на уредбата Chicane и заспивах под звуците на Offshore и Saltwater…бяха сладки сънища :))

chicane-behind-the-sun.jpg080_behind_the_sun.jpg

4) Madonna – Music

Mалко по-странно звучене на Мадона. Мои фаворити са What it feels like for a girl, Beautiful Stranger, American Pie, Music и Don’t tell Me.

madonna.jpg

5) City of Angels OST

След като за пореден път имах удоволствието да се насладя на филма, се разрових и изтеглих песничките от него … макар и отскоро, повечето станаха задължителна част от My Favorites! Това са Alanis Morisette – Uninvited, Goo Goo Dolls – Iris, U2 – If God Will Send His Angels, Sarah McLachlan – Angel, Paula Cole – Feelin’ Love. Не мога да не спомена и Gabriel Yared, присъстващ с 4 незабравими парчета…

city_of_angels.jpg

6) Cafe del Mar Vol.5 (1998)

Колебаех се между няколко части на cafe del mar, но Vol.5 от ’98г. ясно се откроява изжежду останалите… Внимание заслужават Mumbai Theme Tune, More Than Ever People, Appreciation (Radio Mix), Tout Est Bleu (Original Ame Strong S.A. Remix), Talking With Myself ’98 (Canny Remix) !!! и най-вече Close Cover na Wim Mertens! Просто вдъхновяващи!

cafe_del_mar_vol5.jpg

7) Enigma – Love Sensuality Devotion – Greatest Hits

Последен, но не позначение!!, този албум ще оставя без коментар, тук съм написала какво е за мен…

enigma.jpg

Дойде и моят ред да предизвиквам…:)
