‘The Logical Song’

Posted by haynhi on 24/10/2009

THE LOGICAL SONG - By Rave Allstars

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily
Joyfully, oh playfully watching me

 

But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible
Logical, oh responsible, practical
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
Clinical, oh intellectual, cynical (oh intellectual, cynical) (oh intellectual, cynical)...

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily
Joyfully, oh playfully watching me
But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible

Logical, oh responsible, practical
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
Clinical, oh intellectual, cynical

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily
Joyfully, oh playfully watching me

But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible
Logical, oh responsible, practical
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
Clinical, oh intellectual, cynical

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily
Joyfully, oh playfully watching me

Blame it on the girls

Posted by haynhi on 05/10/2009

Blame it on the girls – MIKA. Cameron Diaz loves it.

So I was sitting there in the bar and this guy comes up to me and he said “My life stinks” and I saw his gold credit card and I saw the way he was looking at people across the room and I looked at his face and you know, what a good looking face, and I just said, “Dude, your perspective on life sucks”.

He’s got looks that books take pages to tell
He’s got a face to make you fall on your knees
He’s got money in the bank to thank and I guess
You could think he’s livin’ at ease

Like lovers on the open shore — What’s the matter?
When you’re sitting there with so much more –What’s the matter?
While you’re wondering what the hell to be
Are you wishing you were ugly like me?

Blame it on the girls who know what to do
Blame it on the boys who keep hitting on you

Blame it on your mother for the things she said
Blame it on your father but you know he’s dead

Blame it on the girls
Blame it on the boys
Blame it on the girls
Blame it on the boys

Life could be simple but you never fail
To complicate it every single time

You could have children and a wife, a perfect little life
But you blow it on a bottle of wine

Like a baby you’re a stubborn child — what’s the matter
Always looking for an axe to grind — what’s the matter
While you’re wondering what the hell to do
We were wishing we were lucky like you

Blame it on the girls who know what to do
Blame it on the boys who keep hitting on you

Blame it on your mother for the things she said
Blame it on your father but you know he’s dead

Blame it on the girls
Blame it on the boys
Blame it on the girls
Blame it on the boys x 2

He’s got looks that books take pages to tell
He’s got a face to make you fall on your knees
He’s got money in the bank to thank and I guess
You could think he’s livin’ at ease

Blame it on the girls who know what to do
Blame it on the boys who keep hitting on you

Blame it on your mother for the things she said
Blame it on your father but you know he’s dead

Blame it on the girls
Blame it on the boys
Blame it on the girls
Blame it on the boys x 2

Songs and Dances of Death

Posted by haynhi on 04/10/2009

Songs and Dances of Death (Russian: Песни и пляски смерти, Pesni i plyaski smerti)
A song cycle for voice (usually bass or bass-baritone) and piano by Modest Mussorgsky.

Lyrics by Spiritakis on YouTube

Still is the forest, no soul is in sight…
Winds are lamenting and howling…
Far away yonder where dark falls the night
Something uncanny is prowling.
See! Over there! where the shades gather black
Death has waylaid some poor peasant;

Спи, мой дружок, мужичок счастливый,
Лето пришло, расцвело!
Над нивой солнышко смеётся да серпы гляют,
Песенка несётся, голубки летают…

Сказку, да такую, чтоб всю ночь тянулась,
Чтоб пьянчуге крепко под неё заснулось!
Ой, вы леса, небеса, да тучи,
Темь, ветерок, да снежок летучий!
Свейтесь пеленою, снежной, пуховою;
Ею, как младенца, старичка прикрою..

Горем, тоской да нуждой томимый,
Ляг, прикорни, да усни, родимый!
Я тебя, голубчик мой, снежком согрею,
Вкруг тебя великую игру затею.
Взбей-ка постель, ты мятель-лебёдка!
Гей, начинай, запевай погодка!

В темноте мужика
Смерть обнимает, ласкает,
С пьяненьким пляшет вдвоём трепака,
На ухо песнь напевает:
Ой, мужичок, старичок убогой,
Пьян напился, поплёлся дорогой,
А мятель-то, ведьма, поднялась, взыграла.
С поля в лес дремучий невзначай загнала.

Translation into English by a unknown

Forests and fields, and the coud-rack sweeping,
Darkness and storm and the pale drifts heaping,
Snow-flakes lightly hovering weaves a spotless covering,
Fit for a stainless childhood, round this poor clod sleeping…
Rest, rest, poor friend, slumber, happy fellow,
Dream that the summer is bright, the harvest yellow!
The sun shines, the sickles swing,
Hear the skylark singing.”

What is thy portion by work and sorrow?
Rest here, poor peasant, until tomorrow.
See, a coverlet so white and warm I’ve found you;
Rest and watch the dancing snow-flakes whirl around you.
Soft as the swan’s down, the bed where you lie!
Hey! Sing good-night, fierce gale, as you fly.
Sing, wild wind, his hush-song, through the long dark night,
Let the weary worker sleep till morning light.

Now he invited him to dance the Trepak;
Sings him a song fair and pleasant;

“Ho, my poor worker so bent and grey,
Drunken with vodka, and wandering astray;
By the snow-fiend blinded, led by fitful shadows,
Through the pathless forest, over the trackless meadows

Russian dance

Still is the forest, no soul is in sight…
Winds are lamenting and howling…
Far away yonder where dark falls the night
Something uncanny is prowling.
See! Over there! where the shades gather black
Death has waylaid some poor peasant;

Matrimony

Posted by haynhi on 03/10/2009

Gilbert O’Sullivan – Matrimony

I’ve no wish to hurry you luv
But have you seen the time
It’s quarter to ten and we’re supposed to be there
At nine
I don’t think the registrar
Will be very pleased

When we show up an hour late
Like two frozen peas
Both now facing for the first time
Presently and past
Something that begins with M
And ends in alas
More than not complete disaster
Even from the start
What could it be…
It’s Matrimony
I know how you’ve dreamt about
Being walked down the aisle
But think of the money we’ll save
And you’ll see it’s worthwhile
It won’t please our mums and dads
But they don’t even know,
Besides if they did what’s the betting
They wouldn’t even go
You and me are all that matters
Disregard the rest
Trust your soon to be old man
He knows what is best
Very shortly now there’s going to be
An answer from you
Then one from me
That’s matrimony
I’m truly grateful for the little things in life
That have made me so glad
Every other hour that I spend with you
Is not in the least bit sad
Quite the opposite in fact
And if you don’t believe me
Here’s the proof
Ask me if I and I’ll say “Aye, I do”
(Break)
You and me are all that matters
Disregard the rest
Trust your soon to be old man
He knows what is best
Very shortly now there’s going to be
An answer from you
Then one from me
That’s matrimony
Marriage-the joining together of the two people
For better or for worse Till death them do part
Ole

Again and Again

Posted by nikarai on 02/10/2009

Again and Again by Jewel

Listen dear
I need you to hear.
I cannot disappear
I’ve tried again and again and again.

I know we said
That we’d give up
You said we’d had enough
Again and again and again.

But you, you’re always on my mind.
It’s like this all the time.
Say it’s cause you’re mine
All mine…

And if you will, I will
Try to let it go.
And if you try, I’ll try
Try to let it show us the way
‘Cause love is here to stay
Just look me in the eye
This is do or die
And I will stay in love
‘Till you say enough
There is no giving in
There is no giving up in love.

Walk down the street
Stare at lots of things
The fast and steady streams
Again and again and again.

Do what I should
Try to stay busy
Your face is all I see
Again and again and again.

But you, you’re always on my mind.
It’s like this all the time.
Say it’s cause you’re mine
All mine…

And if you will, I will
Try to let it go.
And if you try, I’ll try
Try to let it show us the way
‘Cause love is here to stay
Just look me in the eye
This is do or die
And I will stay in love
‘Till you say enough
There is no giving in
There is no giving up in love.

Like a movie I once saw
In the darkness I recall
Feeling the beauty and the pain
And when you call my name
Say you feel the same.

Cause’ if you will, I will
Try to let it go
And if you try, I’ll try
Try to let it show.

And if you will, I will
Try to let it go
And if you try, I’ll try
Try to let it show us the way
‘Cause love is here to stay
Just look me in the eye
This is do or die
And I will stay in love
‘Til you say enough
There is no giving in
There is no giving up in love
In love, in love
We’re in love

I cannot disappear…

Here With Me

Posted by haynhi on 01/10/2009

Here With Me – Dido

I didn’t hear you leave
I wonder how am I still here
And I don’t want to move a thing
It might change my memory

Oh I am what I am
I do what I want
But I can’t hide

And I won’t go
I won’t sleep
I can’t breathe
Until you’re resting here with me

And I won’t leave
I can’t hide
I cannot be
Until you’re resting here with me

I don’t want to call my friends
For they might wake me from this dream
And I can’t leave this bed
Risk forgetting all that’s been

Oh I am what I am
I do what I want
But I can’t hide

And I won’t go
I won’t sleep
I can’t breathe
Until you’re resting here with me

I won’t leave
I can’t hide
I cannot be
Until you’re resting here

I won’t go
And I won’t sleep
And I can’t breathe
Until you’re resting here with me

And I won’t leave
I can’t hide
I cannot be
Until you’re resting here with me

Oh I am what I am
I do what I want
But I can’t hide

And I won’t go
I won’t sleep
And I can’t breathe
Until you’re resting here with me

I won’t leave
I can’t hide
I cannot be
Until you’re resting here

And I won’t go
And I won’t sleep
And I can’t breathe
Until you’re resting here with me

I won’t leave
I can’t hide
I cannot be
Until you’re resting here with me

Hunter

Posted by haynhi on 01/10/2009

“Hunter” – Dido

With one light on in one room
I know you’re up when I get home
With one small step upon the stair
I know your look when I get there
If you were a king up there on your throne
would you be wise enough to let me go

for this queen you think you own
Wants to be a hunter again
wants to see the world alone again
to take a chance on life again
so let me go

The unread book and painful look
the tv’s on, the sound is down
One long pause
then you begin
oh look what the cat’s brought in
If you were a king up there on your throne
would you be wise enough to let me go
for this queen you think you own
Wants to be a hunter again
wants to see the world alone again
to take a chance on life again
so let me go
let me leave

For the crown you’ve placed upon my head feels too heavy now
and I don’t know what to say to you but I’ll smile anyhow
and all the time I’m thinking, thinking

I want to be a hunter again
want to see the world alone again
to take a chance on life again
so let me go.

Queen- Bohemian Rhapsody(Live)

Posted by haynhi on 26/09/2009

Queen- Bohemian Rhapsody(Live)

Mama, just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger,now he’s dead,
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away-
Mama ooo,

Didnt mean to make you cry-
If Im not back again this time tomorrow-
Carry on,carry on,as if nothing really matters-

Too late,my time has come,
Sends shivers down my spine-
Bodys aching all the time,
Goodbye everybody-Ive got to go-
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth-
Mama ooo- (any way the wind blows)
I dont want to die,
I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all-

….
