Thomas Newman

I like that I am able to see the good things about certain situations…

Recently, I have rediscovered how to enjoy my own company again, to have the time for all the neglected favorite activities and people, to be inspired through good music and express myself in lyrics.. To rediscover all those things I enjoyed while being on my own.

I like that I feel inspired to be present, to be active, to enjoy myself and share favorite music!

A random talk made me remember Thomas Newman and why I’ve had his amazing sounds as essential part of my favorite relaxing playlist.. Once, when I could fall asleep only with relaxing music in my ears, Thomas Newman was my sweet transition to Dreamland..

Thomas Newman was also a name I have searched for, after seeing movies like American Beauty, City of Angels and Meeting Joe Black.. In fact, sounds were a major reason for me to love the movies themselves..

Here is a favorite..

Tritonal feat. Christina Soto – Everafter (Original Mix)

The softest trance track I have experienced…

Tritonal, a trance duo from Austin, Texas, has caught my attention! :=) Looking forward to discovering their music…

I used to talk about waking up
Like somehow you still be here only better
The story is ending everafter
We have learned to see each other
To laught when we could cry
Just cry

I didn’t know there was a different kind of life

You are a hardest choice i have to make
Sometimes they wish that i was stronger
Is it can i do it
Will you be here when it’s over
Don’t know, but i will try
Just try

I didn’t know there was a different kind of life

Duran Duran – Ordinary World

Music on VH1 is often a background of my afternoons in Denmark.

It sometimes steals my attention from the numerous online updates with a familiar song or something new that by the very first moments, I know I will love..

Tonight it was Duran Duran and their unforgettable ‘Ordinary world’

Came in from a rainy Thursday
On the avenue
Thought I heard you talking softly

I turned on the lights, the TV
And the radio
Still I can’t escape the ghost of you

What has happened to it all?
Crazy, some are saying
Where is the life that I recognize?
Gone away

But I won’t cry for yesterday
There’s an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Passion or coincidence
Once prompted you to say
“Pride will tear us both apart”
Well now pride’s gone out the window
Cross the rooftops
Run away
Left me in the vacuum of my heart

What is happening to me?
Crazy, some’d say
Where is my friend when I need you most?
Gone away

But I won’t cry for yesterday
There’s an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Papers in the roadside
Tell of suffering and greed
Here today, forgot tomorrow
Ooh, here besides the news
Of holy war and holy need
Ours is just a little sorrowed talk

And I don’t cry for yesterday
There’s an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Every one
Is my world, I will learn to survive
Any one
Is my world, I will learn to survive
Any one
Is my world
Every one
Is my world

Natalie Imbruglia – Torn

Notice the video! :=)

Good old song with a special touch of the mime David Armand.

I thought I saw a man brought to life
He was warm, he came around like he was dignified
He showed me what it was to cry
Well you couldnt be that man I adored
You don’t seem to know, don’t seem to care what your heart is for
But I don’t know him anymore
There’s nothing where he used to lie
My conversation has run dry
That’s what’s going on, nothings fine Im torn

Im all out of faith, this is how I feel
Im cold and I am shamed lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed into something real
Im wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
Youre a little late, Im already torn

So I guess the fortune tellers right
Should have seen just what was there and not some holy light
To crawl beneath my veins and now
I don’t care, I have no luck, I don’t miss it all that much
There’s just so many things that I can’t touch, Im torn

Im all out of faith, this is how I feel
Im cold and I am shamed lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed into something real
Im wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
Youre a little late, Im already torn. torn.

There’s nothing where he used to lie
My inspiration has run dry
That’s what’s going on, nothings right, Im torn

Im all out of faith, this is how I feel
Im cold and I am shamed lying naked on the floor
Illusion never changed into something real
Im wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn
Im all out of faith, this is how I feel
Im cold and Im ashamed bound and broken on the floor
Youre a little late, Im already torn

Robbie Williams – Eternity

Just remembered this favorite song of mine by Robbie Williams..

When I listened it for the first time.. I listened ‘with my eyes’, as they say. All I could imagine while he was singing (without focusing on understanding it), is them as a passionate couple, that believes their love is eternal..

Robbie Williams – Eternity

Close your eyes so your don’t feel them
They don’t need to see you cry
I can’t promise I will heal you
But if you want to I will try

I’ll sing this somber serenade
The past is done
We’ve been betrayed
It’s true
Someone said the truth will out
I believe without a doubt, in you

You were there for summer dreaming
And you gave me what I need
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity
For eternity

Yesterday when you were walking
We talked about your mum and dad
What they did that made you happy
What they did that made you sad
We sat and watched the sun go down
Picked a star before we lost the moon
Youth is wasted on the young
Before you know it’s come and gone to soon

You were there for summer dreaming
And you gave me what I need
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity
For eternity

For eternity
I’ll sing this somber serenade
The past is done
We’ve been betrayed
It’s true
Youth is wasted on the young
Before you know it’s come and gone to soon

You were there for summer dreaming
And you are a friend indeed
And I hope you find your freedom
For eternity

You were there for summer dreaming
And you are a friend indeed
And I know you’ll find your freedom
Eventually
For eternity
For eternity

Hurts – Devotion (ft. Kylie Minogue)

Заявих го преди няколко месеца и още стоя зад думите си – Hurst звучат уникално и все още неуморно се наслаждавам на малкото парчета, които имат.

Тази вечер искам да споделя Devotion, мислейки си за любов, за постоянство, за кръстопът, за рискове, за страха от неизвестното и още повече за страха от неизживяното… Но желанието да разбера ‘какво може да бъде’ сякаш винаги надделява над страха от ‘как може да приключи’… И колкото и да се страхувам от бъдещето, от хилядите неща, които могат да се объркат, трябва да опитам!

Защото клишето ‘По-добре да съжалявам за нещо, което съм направила, отколкото за нещо, което не съм’ звучи толкова.. реално…

Hurts – Devotion

Inside the heart of every man
There is a lust you understand
And I’m just the same.

When all the love has gone away
And passion stares me in the face.
Could I walk away?

Here’s hoping
you’ll help me to be brave.

Devotion save me now
I don’t want to stray from the hallowed ground
I’ll turn temptation down.
I’m asking you to take me
to safety
this time.

Forgive my thoughts when I’m asleep
Forgive these words I’m yet to speak
I feel so ashamed.

Right now you seem so far away
So much confusion clouds my way
And I don’t know which path to take.

Here’s hoping
you’ll help me to resist.

Devotion save me now
I don’t wanna stray from the hallowed ground
I’ll turn temptation down.
I’m asking you to take me
to safety
this time.

Devotion, devotion..
I’m a slave unto the mercy of your love
For so long, I’ve been so wrong
I could never live without you.

Devotion, devotion..
Take me to safety

Между другото – Des’ ree – Kissing you

Брат ми се жени утре. Като примерна сестра, аз приех отговорната задача да подбера няколко специални парчета, освен музиката, която the DJ ще е подготвил.

Нека си признаем нещо – музиката по сватбите често не струва! Понякога настръхвам от пълната липса на подбор и оригиналност, поради което много се зарадвах на възложената задача!

Първоначално подходих малко тривиално с теглене на 100 Wedding songs, от които обаче подбрах не повече от 10.. След това ‘прелистих’ личната си колекция от любими парчета. Отделно взех в предвид стила музика, който брат ми и бъдещата му жена определено биха искали да чуят, както и стилове, които знам, че те в никакъв случай не биха искали да чуят 🙂

Така преоткрих много позабравени парчета, една от които между другото искам да споделя в този пост. Никога не съм знаела името на песента и изпълнителката.. но веднага си спомних за филма ‘Ромео и Жулиета’ и безбройните пъти, в които съм плакала на моментите, докато звучи точно тази песен.

Има толкова много други такива любими парчета, които чакат да бъдат преоткрити. Всичко, което ми трябва, е друг случаен повод като този, който да ме отведе до поредното съкровище. Обожавам тези моменти!

Des’ ree – Kissing you

Pride can stand a thousand trials
The strong will never fall
But watching stars without you my soul cried
Heaving heart is full of pain
Oh, oh, the aching
Cause, I’m kissing you oh
I’m kissing you oh
Touch me deep, pure and true gift to me forever
Cause, I’m kissing you
Oh, I’m kissing you, oh
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Cause, I’m kissing you
I’m kissing you, oh
