Lyrics That Must Be Sung.

The lyrics that spring into my head,

At a moment that has passed,

The rhythm and the rhyme,

Sing one line after line,

In my head,

Through the cracks, they sing,

Let me lay in your arms

Even for just a moment

I want to feel the love,

The hope,

The pain

I want to feel it all…

Let me lay in your arms

And I sing these words in my head,

Feel their pain,

Waiting on the sidelines,

For a voice to sing,

Out loud the words that I have written,

With my heart and soul,

Waiting for that something,

To fill that empty hole.

I feel it in my soul,

That words that I am singing

I can’t change the future,”

I can’t change the past,

But when we are together,

There is only love,

Hope,

Pain.”

I hear a voice singing,

The song that I wrote,

On the telly,

The radio,

From the headphone’s

Of the person sitting next to me.

There is no stopping,

The lyrics that are sung,

The need to be sung,

Brought to life,

By the man,

With the jelly low tone,

As sticky and as sweet as tree sap,

And as beautiful as the tremors of the earth.

I am enticed by the beauty of your form,

Let me savour you in my arms,

Hold you tight,

Squeeze you to death,

Because all I want to hear,

Is the sweet sound of your

Honey coated voice.

It is the song that is one of many,

Of voices combined,

And lyrics sung,

With all their might,

The Lyrics must be sung,

Whatever the song,

Whenever the place,

Until the voices run hoarse,

Completely enthralled by the voice,

And by the lyrics they have sung.

Random Music Moment #92

This is one of my old favourites, a song that I think has strange lyrics, yet, I really love the way it sounds.  Is that strange?  Ever since I started posting RMM’s I’ve become more and more aware of the lyrics of songs and I’m always surprised when I read them.  Especially when they are so different to the way they sound!

Feasting on sleeping pills
and Marlboro Reds.
(so busy won’t save you)

Oh how our parents
they suffered for nothing
Live the dream, live the dream, live the dream
Like the 80s never happened.
People are afraid, are afraid
To merge on the freeway.
Disappear here

Stroll the pier
into the magazine launch party.
I am handed a pill,
and I swallow with complete disdain.
Kick-drum bangs off the high-hat;
Remember to look bored.
We suck each others’ faces,
and make sure we are noticed.

(Cocaine won’t save you)
Because East London is a vampire,
it sucks the joy right out of me
How we long for corruption in these golden years.

 

Today’s Random Music Moment : Song for Clay by Bloc Party

Random Music Moment #91

What to say?  What to say?  Guess after hearing MaNga at Eurovision 2010, I did get interested in knowing what other songs they’d released.  And well, found this one!  I think the dancing pretty sharp in this, and I do like the song.

The lyrics are…interesting…

You’ve fallen right out of the sky
I could swear you’re a natural high
Volcanoes erupting inside…
When I see the sparkle in your eyes
But you don’t even realize…
Cause you’ve been hurt so many times
They play with your heart, told you lies
Thes were wrong all along, you were right.
Lyrics from eLyrics.net

 

And well I like it, so enjoy?! Today’s RMM is Fly To Stay Alive by maNga

Random Music Moment #86

Okay I didn’t think I would do another Nightcore genre song, but I thought this one was good haha, it actually does a decent rendition (guess I can’t really call it a rendition if the music’s just wrenched up an octave or so and the speed was sped up a bit, can I?) well, yeah….anyway, I think  this makes the song creepier than it already was, especially with these kinds of lyrics.

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead

Full Lyrics HERE

But the Nightcore version just makes it even creepier I think!  I think despite the fact that the Nightcore genre is simply just changing pitch (and giving the singers chipmunk voices :P) and the speed, I think that it’s another way to promote a song in the sense that hey! This sounds cool, what did the original sound like?  Or maybe I’m just one of those people who like to find out the original song and No way! Check it out! LOL.  Yeah lol.

This version of The Pierces “Secret” totally made me check out the original.  So please enjoy (or not…since it is higher pitched and Nightcore…) today’s RMM and the Original (below the Nightcore version)!

Random Music Moment #73

Ah this was probably the highlight year for me.  I remember this year the best.  After such an amazing stage presence with Finland’s winner in 2006, the big Serbian song and first-song-other-than-English-for-a-long-time to win in 2007, and the simple big-voiced song winner in 2008, and then in 2009, we have the charming, young Alexander Ryback from Norway!  Seriously, this song was catchy, well-sung, interesting, with a seriously young front man.

What’s interesting about this song is that it’s based off Norwegian folklore.  It’s about the Huldra, a beautiful female creature that lures young men to her and then curses them.  Sounds like a Siren or Succubus to me!

Lyrics:

Years ago, when I was younger
I kinda liked, a girl I knew
She was mine, and we were sweethearts
That was then, but then it’s true

I’m in love, with a fairytale
Even though it hurts
Coz I don’t care if I lose my mind
I’m already cursed

Full Lyrics HERE

But the funny thing is, when I listened to the lyrics of this song, I thought about the fairytales I knew and I also thought about the perspectives of love.  Funny how something so irrelevantly relevant could pop up and wah-la, connection of an international level.  And the schema is completely different!

Amazing, isn’t it?

I wonder…well, anyway!  Please enjoy today’s RMM, not long now to the next Eurovision!!! The winner of the 2009 Eurovision Song ContestFairytale by Alexander Rybak.

Always on my mind~

Always in my heart~

This was another that my friend used to drive me crazy with.  She loved singing it, she loved the chorus.  Granted, it is a very cute love song, that combines lust and love in equal proportions.  It’s my own opinion, but I think it’s way better than the song that won Azerbaijan the Eurovision Song Contest!

Beautiful, love, cute, pleasant to listen to, pleasing to watch, please enjoy today’s Random Music Moment: Always by Aysel and Arash

Random Music Moment #60

This was actually one of my favourites last year.  I was so disappointed that they weren’t voted higher.  Well I suppose I didn’t quite like the stage performance as much as the video clip, but I liked the song.  And see!  She does a mini dance routine in the middle.  Well, what can I say, I guess all stage performances are ten times better with a mini dance routine.

Usually every year I go for Turkey and Cyprus.  Normally I don’t like Cyprus’s acts, but Turkey’s, yes.  Except last year I really did like Cyprus’s song.  I thought it was cool that it was like a fairytale!  But sadly, Ivi Adamou only came 16th.

I guess my favourite part of the song is the chorus, where her voice just soars.  And then I get into the mood of the song, get caught by all the “lala lalalalala…” and then it’s stuck in my head.  But I don’t complain because it’s CATCHY !!!  Now if it wasn’t catchy and just plain annoying with some kind of rhythm that I don’t like or tone that grates on my ears then I would have been annoyed, but nope! This isn’t like that at all.  But still, lyrics!

Oh oh oh, I feel the energy between you and me, baby it’s so right
Oh oh oh, I feel the energy just taking over me, over me

How I’ve been waiting for this
Lala lalalalalala lalalalalalala love
Oh I’ve been waiting for this
Lala lalalalalala lalalalalalala love

Full Lyrics HERE

And the stage performance:

 

Have I mentioned that I think the MV was better?

Random Music Moment #57

Oh this one.  I remember this one.  The mirrors, the skimpy pretty dress.  I really loved listening to this.  It’s hard to forget, yet somehow I managed to!  There was something addictive about this song.  I mean, I didn’t mind the singing much, the stage performance was very interesting, but I think the lyrics caught me.  Geezz these days I feel like I’m listening more and more to the lyrics of songs.  I wonder why?  Maybe I’m appreciating music more?

Anyway, lyrics:

You’ve been my superstar 
But it’s not what you are 
You’ve been my super hero

Since I’ve lived in your shade 
Every step that I made 
Brought me nothing but zero 

But I’m staying alive 
And now I’m changin’ my life 
With a burning desire

No one knows who I am 
But I don’t give a damn 
Gonna set you on fire 

Shady lady – I’m gonna strike like thunder 
Are you ready? I wanna make you wonder 
Rollin’ steady – I’m gonna make you shiver 
My heart is burning

Lyrics HERE

AND the Eurovision entry! Enjoy! Shady Lady By Ani Lorak

Random Music Moment #55

Can you feel the rhythm in my heart
the beats going Düm Tek Tek
always out it like there’s no limit
feels like there’s no way back
can you feel the rhythm in my heart
the beats going Düm Tek Tek
always out it like there’s no  limit
feels like there’s no way back

Full Lyrics HERE

I can’t believe I’m only posting about this now!  I remember and loved this song for it’s catchiness.  And it’s one of the reasons why I say Turkey has some of the greatest songs in the competition.  But it really, really, really sucks that Turkey isn’t in it this year.  I think I heard a rumour that Hadise was ssick during this performance.  If so!  Then don’t mind do much if she doesn’t sound good.

I love this particular performance however, I love the red dresses, and I think Hadise is beautiful, plus the music is catchy haha.  Well, please enjoy!  ANother, Lead-Up-To-Eurovision-Random Music Moment!!!  Today is Düm Tek Tek By Hadise.

 

Random Music Moment #54

This was great.  It totally deserved its place, but also I reckon it could have even won!  There was just something hot and fiery about this song, about the lyrics, about the performance.  There were some big vocals and well, it has to be watched to understood!

What’s to say, the lyrics are catchy, repetitive but catchy!  The stage performance, oh my god! Awesome, seriously, check it out below, it’s fabulous!  What else can I say?

You and me, can’t you see,
we’re playing with fire
Tell me now,
do you feel this burning desire?
Don’t stop, make it rock,
it’s taking us higher
Could it be just a dream?
Are you running away?

Let me introduce today’s Random Music Moment and the next installment of the Lead-Up-To-Eurovision-Music-Moments, Playing With Fire By Ovi and Paula Seling 

Random Music Moment #53

Well yesterday I posted about last year’s Jedward entrance to Eurovision, today is 2011’s entrance.

Lyrics: Check!

You say you’re on it but you just don’t know
You’re spending money like you’re on death row
You must have been mis-educated
By all the guys that you dated
You think I’ll take the bait but I don’t think so

Ohhhh
Am I headed for a car crash?
Ohhhh
I’m just about to meet my match, she takes the
Ohhhh
I’m about to fall in head first
Sisters let me tell you how it works

Full Lyrics HERE

Lyrics: Awesome!

Music: Catchy

Costume: Whacky! Lol but in a positive way (as opposed to the newsreader who once introduced a news story on Eurovision on the day of the final as something weird and whacky – such a negative image, why?! Eurovision is awesome!)

Performance: RED HOT FABULOUS hahaha well enjoy today’s Random Music Moment!  I present, the 2011 entrant act …. Lipstick by Jedward

Random Music Moment #52

This artist was in Eurovision the year before, and I agree their song was pretty interesting and energetic so I’m not surprised that Ireland did better than usual.  And though I liked their song last year, it seems Europe liked the song from the year before much better!  I can’t really judged them much on vocals and whatnot, but I don’t think they sing too bad.  I love the whole twin act (awesome!) and their costumes! Well they always seem to be interesting!

What I loved the most about this song was the lyrics:

Floodgates, can’t wait
Here she comes, shut ‘em fast
Better shut ‘em fast
Too late, swept away
Feel the rush after the fact

Coming up beneath me
Never been in love so deeply before

I am close to the waterline
I thought that I’d been over my head for the last time
I’m so close to the waterline
And the way I’m loving her now
I know this is bound to go down as the big one
Lyrics from HERE

I did enjoy this song, but I agree, compared to the one from the year before, it does seem a bit plain lolol.  But yet I still have a copy of this one over the other (I’ll probably post the other one tomorrow!)

Please enjoy another lead up song to this year’s Eurovision, today’s Random Music Moment: Waterline by Jedward

Random Music Moment #50

This is one of my favourite Georgia entries for Eurovision over the last few years (forgive me, my memory of my earlier days watching Eurovision is a little fuzzy).  I really enjoyed this one and I had a very good thing this would make the top ten!  It has that powerful voice of the vocalist, a mixture of rock and rap, and it’s just filled with the best of, well, anything that’ll catch my attention! Haha.  Oh yes, and the lyrics, I love the lyrics. Sample ! :

 

I wanna give in to fire, uncover vicious desire
Abandon painful denial, find pretty reason to stay
One more forbidden sensation
One more emotional flare
Down with the fake hesitation,
Hell yeah, I’m ready to pay

Pay for the hopeless despair
Gonna live one more day of my fate

For full lyrics go HERE

Loved it! Today’s Random Music Moment: One More Day By Eldrine

 

Random Music Moment #48

Now I really loved this song, to be honest, Azerbaijan is pretty good at bringing out pop artists singing pop songs for their entries into Eurovision.  And most of the time I like their voices, and I like their songs, but there are always songs that are just a bit better than theirs (though generally I’d expect them to be in the top 5), that is until they won in 2011.  Today’s RMM is not that winning song. Unfortunately I won’t be posting about that one until it’s closer, looking at the date now, I still just over a month haha (clearly I am very enthusiastic :P).

Today’s song didn’t catch me because of its lyrics.  Though the lyrics are good, and it’s definitely a set I’d listen to:

These last three weeks past and we’ve barely talked
I think I know, and it’s breaking my heart
Am I in or am I out?

Can I love you forever through this?
Can I trust in you forever through this?
I don’t know how to stop, how to stop
These teardrops aha 
That drip drop drip drop
(And) drip drop drip drop
Oh.. Oh…

Tell me where have you been?
Why are you late?
You smell like lipstick again
Come on, answer my question!
Say something.
Why are you acting out?
Oh, say it’s in my head…

Full lyrics can be found HERE

But I guess it was her performance and well, when she began performing in the semi, the SBS commentators – who I absolutely love, because they do an awesome job – said that she did not know much English at all, just the lyrics of her song (well I’m pretty sure that’s what they said).  And if you listen, you can understand my shock.  She does an unbelievably fabulous job and well I just loved the song.  Haha.

So enjoy today’s Random Music Moment: Drip Drop By Safura

Random Music Moment #47

Another Eurovision favourite~! And I’ve begun to realise something…so far most of them are from the 2010 Olso Eurovision.  But I have to say, that was one of my favourite years.  There were just some many songs I really liked and this one is no exception! (Just wait though, I will try and post songs from other years too, I just haven’t run out of 2010 yet :P)

Today’s RMM is, in my opinion, a very culturally embedded song, even though it is in English!  I love how the is song really does do English as an International language, justice.  It’s a song sung English, using the English language yet, ultimately the purpose was not so that westerners could understand but as a lingua franca of Europe, it is a language than many could possible have in common particularly in this day in age! (Fascinating hahaha!)

Apricot stone,
Hidden in my hand
Given back to me
From the motherland
Apricot stone,
I will drop it down
In the frozen ground
I’ll just let it make its round”

The rest of the lyrics: HERE

Well, I like the lyrics, I’ve heard them called strange, but I don’t think they’re that strange, just interesting? Lol, well I hope you enjoy!

Here is today’s Random Music Moment : Apricot Stone By Eva Rivas

Random Music Moment #45

Another favourite for the Eurovision-is-around-the-corner RMM posts!  This one was from Turkey.  I actually saw clippings of this performance in the MX one the Friday, I think I screamed especially when I saw the extent of the act.  Hello is that a grinder?  Or whatever that sparkling piece of machinery is called?  It’s awesome, literally, nothing can beat it.  And then we have the song.  I love it’s title, and the lyrics, well they certainly did catch my attention haha.

I can see it in your eyes
It doesn’t count as a surprise
I see you dancing like a star
No matter how different we are

For all this time I’ve been loving you
Don’t even know your name

For just one night, we could be the same
No matter what they say

And I feel I’m turning the page
And I feel the world is a stage
Lyrics from HERE

Yep, I liked the lyrics.  And the song.  And the metal grinder.  And then well, let’s go back to the song haha.  Turkey is always one of my favourites in the competition, and it sucks that they’re not entering this year! I don’t know why yet, but I have a feeling it’s either money-wise or politcal-wise.  So that’s a bummer!

Anyway I still have this —> Today’s Random Music Moment is We Could Be The Same By maNga

Random Music Moment #40

This was another song that always got stuck in my head when it was popular.  I guess you could even say that I heard it so much that I ended up liking it.  But well, it’s just like all popular music (not that I’m completely against it, since there are great songs mixed in with the ones that make me think – why?)  I don’t really think much of the lyrics, or the tune, but it is catchy I suppose.  For those who remember?

Anyway today’s Random Music Moment is Umbrella By Rihanna feat Jay Z

Random Music Moment #39

This popped into my head.  Unfortunately I only knew part of the lyrics which was really sad because I remember this song.  It used to get stuck in my head for no apparent reason than to sing the chorus for the rest of my life lol.  So I asked, one, my —friend if he knew the song, and two, google if they knew which song it was.  And well, as expected, the answer turned up, with the lyrics I knew as the title of the song, and next to it, the artist.  Well, that was easy.  It makes me feel kind of silly knowing that the only part of the song that I knew was actually the the title.  But at least I know who it’s by now haha.

And now, for the song of the random moment, today’ s RMM, you’ll probably know this?  I mean  know this and I’m not that old lol.

Today’s Random Music Moment is Losing My Religion by REM

Random Music Moment #37

This just popped into my head actually.  I think I like the lyrics and rhythm the most about this song.  Otherwise I wouldn’t normally listen to Savage Garden.  But this song has this affect on me.  One of those random ones I heard somewhere, managed to get stuck in my head and well, became the choice song of the day or the week.  Anyway, loved this song, maybe you’ll like it too?  Enjoy!

 

Today’s Random Music Moment is To The Moon And Back by Savage Garden.
