Eliza Doolittle – Pack Up

I get tired
And upset
And i’m trying to care a little less
When i google i only get depressed
I wast taught to dodge those issues I was told
Don’t worry
There’s no doubt
There’s always something to cry about
When you’re stuck in an angry crowd
They don’t think what they say before they open their mouths
(chorus)
Pack up your troubles in you old kit bag
And bury them beneath the sea
I don’t care what the people may say
What the people may say about me
Pack up your troubles get your old grin back
Don’t worry ’bout the cavalry
I don’t care what the whisperers say
Cos’ they whisper too loud for me.

Hot topic
Maybe I should drop it
It’s a touchy subject
and I like to tiptoe round the tiff goin’ down
You got penny, but no pound
your business is running out
‘not my business to talk about
They don’t think what they say before they open their mouths.
(Chorus)
Tweet tweet
tweet tweet tweet tweet tweet
tweet
(chorus)
Yeahh yeah yeah
yeah yeah
yeah
(dibadabadodooo)

Ingrid Michaelson – You and I

don’t you worry, there my honey
we might not have any money
but we’ve got our love to pay the bills

maybe I think you’re cute and funny,
maybe I wanna do what bunnies do with you,
if you know what I mean

Oh, let’s get rich and buy our parents homes in the South of France
let’s get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
and teach them how to dance
let’s get rich and build our house on a mountain
making everybody look like ants
from way up there, you and I, you and I

well you might be a bit confused
and you might be a little bit bruised
but baby how we spoon like no one else
so I will help you read those books
if you will soothe my worried looks
and we will put the lonesome on the shelf

oh let’s get rich and buy our parents homes in the South of France
let’s get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
and teach them how to dance
let’s get rich and build our house on a mountain
making everybody look like ants
from way up there you and I, you and I

oh, let’s get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France
let’s get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
and teach them how to dance
let’s get rich and build our house on a mountain
making everybody look like ants
from way up there you and I, you and I





East of Elsewhere

6 04 2010

Din cand in cand descopar. Oameni, cuvinte, locuri, amintiri uitate. Umbre conturate de lumini. Formatii care se scriu cu litera mica si se asculta cu lumina stinsa. Si se pastreaza.

https://ammelie.files.wordpress.com/2010/04/starfish64_-_east_of_elsewhere.doc

starfish64: Un indie-rock frumos ca o poveste. Melancolic, evocator, tacut. Cuvinte incarcate de emotii, ca un drum care abia incepe si care nu stii unde te duce. Imi plac la nebunie: East of Elsewhere, Every Other Town, Beyond Repair, Count the Sleepers, Platform Eight.

Melodii ascultabile pe repeat si descarcabile pe Last Fm.

Apropo de ‘ascultate pe repeat’, de la inceputul anului mi-am facut o lista pe Yahoo Profiles (locul meu de facut liste 🙂 🙂 o insiruire lunara de influente, descoperiri si obsesii muzicale. Pana acum am asa:

Ianuarie 2010

  • An inceput sub influenta delicioasa a lui Ray.
  • Descoperire: Bat for Lashes. Gen: indie, alternative, bjork-ish. Melodiile preferate: Seal Jubilee, Sad Eyes, Daniel.
  • Seara cu muzica anilor ’90: Savage Garden, Backstreet Boys, Oasis, Nirvana, No Doubt, Roxette, Alanis Morissette, Fugees, Guns. The 90’s rule!
  • Obsesie: Isabel Pantoja – Por tu amor
  • Melodii speciale: Zoe Ft Ky-mani Marley – Could It Be You, Alaine – Love Loud And Clear, Etta James – I Just Wanna Make Love to You.
  • In Secret: Ascult si eu Ke$ha – Tik Tok. 😛 Chiar imi place, e dansabila. Bine, eu as asculta si Lady Gaga daca asa avea voie. Dar nu am. 😛

Februarie 2010

  • Influenta: Cand asculti Bob Marley, nu-ti mai trebuie nimic altceva.
  • Pe repeat: Strawberry Fields Forever
  • Descoperire: Sophie Zelmani. Gen: un pop delicat, inspre indie, chiar chill-out. Imi aminteste pe alocuri de Ane Brun. Melodiile preferate: The Ocean and Me, Composing, Time si poate cel mai mult Yeah, Okay. De altfel tot albumul The Ocean and Me imi place.
  • Obsesie: Owl City – Fireflies. Imi plac Owl City. Sunt de ascultat cand ai chef de liniste. Last fm zice ca ei canta pop-electronic, dar mie mi se pare ca seamana cu The Feeling mai mult decat cu orice altceva. Oricum, Fireflies e delicioasa!
  • Pe repeat: Marit Larsen – If A Song Could Get Me You. Imi place, e o melodie draguta
  • Influenta: Bossa Nova! The zen-like simplicity & the cool sensibility 🙂 Pe repeat: Gilberto Gil – Vamos Fugir
  • Pe repeat: Natty – Bedroom Eyes (reggae meets r’n’b) Via Alexandra Ivan.


Martie 2010

  • Pe repeat: La Roux – Bulletproof
  • In Secret: Imi cam place Rihanna cu Russian Roulette. 😀 Bine, mie mi-a mai placut si Unfaithful de la ea. Hey, toti avem micile noastre guilty pleasures, nu? 😛
  • Descoperire: Ive Mendes e asa, ca un rasfat! Vocea ei e un fior, iar ritmul melodiilor un balsam. Seamana, intr-adevar cu Sade, dar are in plus acel sabor exotic al Braziliei (chiar si atunci cand canta in engleza). Imi plac la nebunie: Another Way, A Biera Mar, If You Leave Me Now, No Vou Fugir si cam toate melodiile 🙂 Via AnaAyana.
  • Pe repeat: Electric Dream Machine – Dayman :)) Chiar imi place! E The Darkness meets Scissors Sisters, iar vocea lui Charlie e chiar foarte faina!
  • In the mood for: Vita de Vie
  • Pe repeat: Vama Veche – Suflet Normal Marea-mi da mereu inapoi tot ce oamenii imi iau
  • Pe repeat: Regina Spektor – Laughing with (Same old Regina: quirky, spiritual, deep) Via Ioana.
  • Descoperire: Charlotte Gainsbourg. Gen: indie-pop with an electric twist. O voce soft, in care se simte partea ei franceza, putin bojrk-ish pe alocuri. As spune ca i se potriveste foarte bine termenul de easy listening. Melodiile preferate: Beauty Mark, Jamais, Morning Song. Si inca n-am asculatat noul album. Via Ioana.




Bossa Nova

19 02 2010

Foto de aici.

La mine (acasa, la servici, in cap) rasuna cam de la inceputul saptamanii Bossa Nova. Ca te obicei, cand imi place cu adevarat ceva, ma apuc sa studiez domeniul respectiv si sa il introc pe toate partile. Asa ca am aflat:

Bossa Nova este un stil muzical brazilian aparut la sfarsitul anilor 50 – inceputul anilor 60. A evoluat, cum altfel, din samba, amestecandu-se cu jazz-ul si, in oarecare masura, cu reggae si muzica cubaneza. ‘Noua tendinta’ (cam asa s-ar traduce Bossa Nova) a fost popularizata de Vinicius de Moraes, Antonio Carlos Jobim si Joao Gilberto. Prima melodie de Bossa Nova este considerata ‘Bim-Bom’, a lui Joao Gilberto.

Desi miscarea Bossa Nova a tinut propriu-zis doar sase ani (1958-63), a atras multi adepti, in special tineri muzicieni si studenti si a contribuit cu numeroase melodii la repertoriul standard de jazz. Popularitatea genului a crescut in anii ce au urmat si a depasit granitele Braziliei si apoi continentul sud-american, astfel incat au aparut dueturi de genul: Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim. (adica Frankie 🙂 )

Alte doua etape notabile cred ca sunt:

– Pe la mijlocul anilor 90, artistii europeni au inceput sa se inspire din Bossa Nova, remixand-o in BossaElectrica, TechnoBossa, etc. Inevitabil.

– In sens invers, artisti brazilieni au remixat celebre melodii internationale, adaptandu-le la stilul Bossa Nova. Ar trebui sa ascultati versiunea dupa Guns – You Could Be Mine. 🙂

Dincolo de istoria genului si discutii teoretice despre estetica acestuia, ce imi place mie la acest stil este acest feeling de relaxare, de usuratate, de a privi viata zambind si de te lasa purtat de val. Sunt doua expresii pe care le-am gasit si care cred ca se potrivesc foarte bine:

zen-like simplicity

cool sensibility

Pe repeat este acum piesa:

Gilberto Gil – Vamos Fugir (Gimme Your Love)

Vamos fugir
Deste lugar, baby
Vamos fugir
Tô cansado de esperar
Que você me carregue

Vamos fugir
Proutro lugar, baby
Vamos fugir
Pronde quer que você vá
Que você me carregue

Pois diga que irá
Irajá, Irajá
Pronde eu só veja você
Você veja a mim só
Marajó, Marajó
Qualquer outro lugar comum
Outro lugar qualquer
Guaporé, Guaporé
Qualquer outro lugar ao sol
Outro lugar ao sul
Céu azul, céu azul
Onde haja só meu corpo nu
Junto ao seu corpo nu

Vamos fugir
Proutro lugar, baby
Vamos fugir
Pronde haja um tobogã
Onde a gente escorregue
Todo dia de manhã
Flores que a gente regue
Uma banda de maçã
Outra banda de reggae

Se poate asculta aici.

Owl City – Fireflies

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep

‘Cause they’d fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You’d think me rude
But I would just stand and stare

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems

‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance

A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

Leave my door open just a crack
(Please take me away from here)
‘Cause I feel like such an insomniac
(Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep
(Please take me away from here)
When I’m far too tired to fall asleep

To ten million fireflies
I’m weird ‘cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell

But I’ll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
‘Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

P.S. Imi plac Owl City. Sunt de ascultat cand ai chef de liniste. Last Fm zice ca ei canta pop-electronic, dar mie mi se pare ca seamana cu The Feeling mai mult decat cu orice altceva. Oricum, Fireflies e delicioasa!

Ilse DeLange – Miracle

Someone put a lock on this old door
It’s been beaten up and used and more
It’s been kicked a hundred thousand times
It’s keeping all the memories behind

If you read the lines between the paint
Look beyond the cracks that store away
It’s hidden in the windows of the walls
Right behind the eyes that saw it all

Given all the facts of circumstance
I did not believe that a romance
Would show itself in all this dark and blue
That’s the only place I ever knew

You put me outside my safety-zone
Outside all the lines that made my home
To find out that no one really lives
Without giving what it is you give

A miracle looking in my life
A mirror-ball showing me all these faces
A miracle looking in my life, after all
A miracle looking in my life
A mirror-ball showing me all these faces
A miracle

I’v been living underneath my skin
Everything I felt I kept it in
It carried all the words without a sound
It got me, it almost got too loud

But now that my arms are holding on
To someone as sacred as a song
To the one who wants to be my own
I have found that blood can come from stones

A miracle looking in my life
A mirror-ball showing me all these faces
A miracle looking in my life, after all
A miracle looking in my life
A mirror-ball showing me all these faces
A miracle

A miracle looking in my life
A mirror-ball showing me all these faces
A miracle looking in my life, after all
A miracle looking in my life
A mirror-ball showing me all these faces
A miracle looking in my life, after all
A miracle looking in my life
A mirror-ball showing me all these faces
A miracle

Someone put a lock on this old door
It’s been beaten up and used and more
It’s been kicked a hundred thousand times
iI’s keeping all the memories behind

Bob Marley – Sunshine Reggae

Give me give me give me just a little smile
That’s all I ask of you

O stare de chill, amestecata cu o usoara durere de cap, totul acoperit de ceata subtire de azi dimineata. Luni, toamna.


You Are Your Favorite Sweater


You love to feel nostalgic and peaceful. Every fall, you are flooded with happy memories.

A certain smell or feel in the air can take you back to your childhood. Autumn is a important time for you.You enthusiastically greet each fall. You are excited to wear heavier clothes and curl up under a blanket.

Autumn reminds you of a simpler time with being back at school, halloween costumes, and hot chocolate. And it all starts with your favorite sweater.
