God, I haven't heard this song for donkey's years!

I used to listen to this song so much when I studied in Malaysia!

I could sing it all day long and all night long! :wink:

Jika dunia

Aku yang punya

Akan kuhiaskan

Putih dan berseri

Jika dunia

Aku yang punya

Akan ku dirikan

Sebuah syurga

Malam tanpa siang

Untuk ku bermimpi

Sepanjang masa

Tanpa kecewa

Bertemankan bintang yang setia

Bagaikan puteri

Kisah khayalan

Yang hidupnya suci dan sempurna

Tapi sayang

Hanyalah impian

Bulan tak bisa tumbuh di taman

Dan bila mentari datang

Pulanglah segala kenyataan

Jika dunia

Aku yang punya

Akan kuhiaskan

Sepasang sayap

Putih dan berseri

Untukku kemudi

Sepanjang masa

Tanpa kecewa

Bertemankan bintang yang setia

Bagaikan puteri

Kisah khayalan

Yang hidupnya suci dan sempurna

Tapi sayang

Hanyalah impian

Bulan tak bisa tumbuh di taman

Dan bila mentari datang

Pulanglah segala kenyataan

Another Malay song I used to fancy a lot back home!

Further to HashiriKata's comments on 杨乃文's voice earlier, I also find her husky voice is quite similar to a Malaysian rock queen, Ella.

Please click here for the music video.

Layar Impian

Jika mimpi masa silam

Bisa kusimpan dalam kaca

Jadi perhiasan

Pasti aku abadikan

Zaman riang kanak-kanak

Pabila hujan mengundang

Suasana bahagia

Dalam hidup yang seindah

Mimpi yang tidak pernah

Melukakan perasaan...

Tapi kini bila dewasa

Ku mula sedar betapa mimpi

Hanyalah suatu permainan

Jiwa insan dalam kesepian

Jika mimpi cinta kita

Bisa kuzahirkan

Jadi lukisan yang menarik

Pasti aku sentosakan

Malam pesta bila engkau

Lafazkan janji dan memelukku

Sepanjang tarian

Hingga pipi ku terasa

Basah dalam tangisan

Yang penuh kesyukuran...

Tapi kini bila dewasa

Ku mula sedar betapa mimpi

Hanyalah suatu permainan

Jiwa insan dalam kesepian

What a stunning tune!

So electrifying and uplifting!

Shake your arse with this video. Please click here.

I've Got a Life

Turn it down so I can't hear it

Turn it out so I can't see it

It's just useless to ignore

We're going down, you don't feel it

Turn it round, you don't mean it and

I can't stand it anymore

When the whole world sighs

And it's making you so deflated

I've got a life

Though it refuses to shine

I've got a life it ain't over (it ain't over)

I've got a way

It's the only things that's mine

All I'm asking for is tenderness

A little tenderness

Ooo it's a cruel place

You never asked to be here

Nobody cares and no one's gonna help you now (hold on)

It's dog eat dog the human race

The only thing they'll do is hate you (hate you)

Such a crime to be unkind

Turn your cheek pretend you're blind

I've got a life

Though it refuses to shine

I've got a life it ain't over

It ain't over

I've got a way

It's the only thing that's mine

All I'm asking for is tenderness

Tenderness

I've got a life

Though it refuses to shine

I've got a life it ain't over

It ain't over

I've got a way

It's the only thing that's mine

All I'm asking for is tenderness

Be strong now baby

Gotta be strong now baby

Gotta be strong!

How about some St. Patrick's Day pre-celebration?

This clip features Siamsa , a scene taken from Michael Flatley's Feet of Flames.

Apropos, I used to do Irish Dance at Uni too! Ha ha... :mrgreen:

Also an active ceilidh dancer in Edinburgh! Ha ha... :mrgreen:

Was even invited to perform the Riverdance at an Irish pub! :)

And floating around in ecstasy

That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit

I'm travelling at the speed of light

If you wanna have a good time just give me a call

Don't stop me now (cause I'm havin a good time)

Don't stop me now (yes I'm havin a good time)

I don't want to stop at all

I'm a rocket ship on my way to Mars

On a collision course

I am a satellite Im out of control

I am a sex machine ready to reload

Like an atom bomb about to

Oh oh oh oh oh explode

I'm burning through the sky yeah!

Two hundred degrees

That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit

I'm travlling at the speed of light

I wanna make a supersonic woman of you

Don't stop me don't stop me

Don't stop me hey hey hey!

Don't stop me don't stop me ooh ooh ooh (I like it)

Dont stop me don't stop me

I wanna make a supersonic man out of you

I'm having a ball don't stop me now

If you wanna have a good time just give me a call

God, this is soooo grooovy!!! :wink:

Watch the video here.

A Smile & A Ribbon

A smile is something special

A ribbon is something rare

So I'll be special and I'll be rare

With a smile and a ribbon in my hair

To be a girl they notice

Takes more than a fancy dress

So I'll be noticed because I'll dress

With a smile and a ribbon in my tresses

The bigger my toothy grin is

The smaller my troubles grow

The louder I say "I'm happy!"

The more I believe it so

So I'll have that extra something

'cause I know what to wear

So I'll be special and I'll be rare

I'll be something beyond compare

I'll be noticed because I'll wear

A smile and a ribbon in my hair

Ha ha... :tong

To truly enjoy a film, you must watch it from the beginning all the way to its end. :wink:

Apparently, you both have missed some of my arduous one-man-show. :mrgreen:

Luckily, you may press this replay button to re-watch some of the creme de la creme! :)

Voila!

Come on, let's fall in love! :wink:

This clip was extracted from the film, De-Lovely, portraying the life of song writer, Cole Porter. It was a good film.

Let's Do It (Let's Fall In Love)

But that’s why birds do it,

Bees do it,

Even educated fleas do it,

Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

In Spain the best upper sets do it,

Lithuanians and Lats do it,

Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

The Dutch in old Amsterdam do it,

Not to mention the Finns,

Folks in Siam do it,

Think of Siamese twins.

Some Argentines without means do it,

People say in Boston even beans do it,

Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

Cold Cape Cod clams ‘gainst their wish do it,

Even lazy jellyfish do it,

Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

Electric eels, I might add, do it,

Though it shocks ‘em I know,

Why ask if shads do it,

Waiter bring me shad roe.

In shallow shoals English soles do it,

Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it,

Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

The dragonflies in the reeds do it,

Sentimental centipedes do it,

Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

Mosquitoes, heaven forbid, do it,

So does every katydid do it,

Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

The most refined ladybugs do it,

When a gentleman calls,

Moths in your rugs do it,

What’s the use of moth balls?

Locusts in trees do it,

Bees do it,

Even overeducated fleas do it,

Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.

Let’s do it, let’s fall in love,

Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

What a shame! :cry:

Probably Sydney is too far away from New York and they don't go there often enough to promote their albums?! :wink:

DJ stands for "Disc Jockey" and the K is there because Koneko always signs his name "K."

I'm betting he put it there because he was writing out a song, and he always signs his name DJ K. when he's putting up a song

Oh, and I have to agree that Queen's version is better, this song was really amazing in the movie "Shaun of the Dead" they really timed their beating of the zombie well with the song:)
