Specially dedicated to my No 1 fan, Ding Yiyi. :wink:

Desafinado is one of my favourite songs!

Probably one of the best songs ever made in the entire universe!

Desafinado

Se Voce Disser Que Eu Desafi No Amor

Saiba que isto em mim provocaimensa dor

So privilegia dos tern ou vidoigual ao seu

Eu possuo a penas î que deus me deu

Se voce insiste em classificar

Î meu comportamento de anri musical

Eu mesmo menrindo possoargu mencar

Que is ãî ¸ bossa nova que is to ¸ mui to natural

Î que voce nao sabe nem siquer presente

¸ que os desafindos rambem tern coracao

Fotografei voce na minha rolleiflex

Revelouse a sua enor mein gratidao

So nao podera fatar assim do meu amor

¸ le ¸ î maior que voce pode enconirar 'viu'

Voce corn a sua musica es que ecu î principal

¸ que no peito dos desafindos

No fundo do peito bate cala do

¸ que no peito dos desafina

Dos tambem bate um coracao

DJ. K.

There was a while back last fall when Scissor Sisters was really hot in Taiwan. On HitoRadio they debuted and maintained #2 for 3-4 weeks (stuck just behind EVANESCENCE). They also had another song called "Land of a thousand words" which never got any higher than # 8 in the Foreign/English charts here in Taiwan. You can still hear these songs played a few times a week, not too bad... :D

If you got it, flaunt it... :mrgreen:

Well, I was in THE choir at my primary school and we won the first prize above all obstacles. Well, among some 20 other choir groups from other schools with this patriotic song,

. :) Yes, there was when all of us were so innocent and easily brainwashed by our teachers to sing so fervently.

Setia

Demi negara yang tercinta

Dicurahkan bakti penuh setia

Demi Raja yang disanjung tinggi

Kesetiaan tak berbelah bagi

Kepada pemimpin kepada rakyat

Khidmat diberi penuh taat

Sama bekerja sama berusaha

Setia berkhidmat untuk semua

Rela berkorban apa saja

Amanah bangsa tetap dijaga

Kami berikrar penuh setia

Untuk agama, bangsa dan negara

Introducing Le Tigre, new wave across the Atlantic!

Renowned for their highly political lyrics, dealing with issues of feminism and community.

You hide inside, so not okay

(keep on, keep on livin')

What if you remember more today?

(Keep on, keep on livin')

The phone rings but there's too much to say

(keep on, keep on livin')

You tell them to go when you wish they would stay

(keep on, keep on livin')

You gotta keep on (keep on livin')...

Disproportionate reactions just won't fade

(keep on, keep on livin')

Every dude you see puts you in a rage

(keep on, keep on livin')

Or stupid s* keeps just make you cry

(keep on, keep on livin')

Your friends are worried you won't tell them why

(keep on, keep on livin')

You gotta keep on (keep on livin!)...

Look up to the sky sky sky.

Take back your own tonight.

You'll find more than you see.

It's time now now get ready.

So you can taste that sweet sweet cake

And feel the warm water in a lake (y'know).

What about that nice cool breeze?

And hear the buzzing of the bumble bees.

Just live beyond those neighbourhood lives

And go past the yard outside

And push through your greatest fears

And live past your memories tears

Cuz you don't need to scratch inside.

Just please hold onto your pride and...

So don't let them bring you down

And don't let them f* you around cuz those are you arms,

That is your heart and no no they can't tear you apart.

They can't take it away, no!

This is your time this is your life and...

(keep on livin!)...

DJ. K.

Music from Pleasantville.

Have you guys seen this film featuring Tobey Maguire and ReeseWitherspoon?

Colour was utilised intelligently, meaningfully and epiphanically in the film to represent passion, sympathy and revulsion which also linked to the 1950s racial tensions in America indirectly.

Unquestionably, Pleasantville is one of my favourite films! :wink:

Across the Universe

Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,

They slither while they pass they slip away across the universe

Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind,

Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru de va om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,

They call me on and on across the universe,

Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box they

Tumble blindly as they make their way

Across the universe

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter, shades of earth are ringing

Through my open ears inciting and inviting me

Limitless undying love which shines around me like a

million suns and calls me on and on

Across the universe

Jai guru deva om

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Nothing's gonna change my world

Is she still singing?

When she said that you were through

I thought that there was nothing that I could do

Just because she ran right here

Doesn't mean I interfered

Now I'm wondering if we can feel the same

Cause she keeps whispering your name

She keeps on whispering your name

Like she's just waiting

She once told me how she felt

Didn't just want me to hear it from someone else

There were unknowns she couldn't know

But she hoped you two would grow

And when you didn't she was brought to me in pain

And she keeps whispering your name

She keeps on whispering your name

Like she's just waiting

If it's just a little fling

A simple thing

I'll try not to pretend

If it's just for jealousy

She's using me

That might be hard to mend

Oh what else can I do

But try to give her more than she got from you

And when she wakes up suddenly and she says your name to me

I'll just hope its force of habit and not need

Cause she keeps whispering your name

She keeps on whispering your name

Like she's just waiting

Oh tell me what is fair

When nothing's wrong

And she just stares

Like she's just waiting

Would you (or anyone) object to posting these music recommendations all in one thread? You've got a ton of them and the majority don't seem to get any response.

知音难寻... ...

Anyway, Columbus didn't discover America just in one day.

Probably, my fans are still assembling their ships before they can set off their voyages of discovery. :mrgreen:

With such a title, I was expecting a French song but it turned out to be something else. Not fair!
