Music Introduction : 陳綺貞 - 孩子

Been a long time since I updated this. I've got a few request to update this. This makes me happy knowing people actually read/listen/want me to buck up this blog.

Alright, I'll start of this post with a personal favourite of mine when I was in UK. Been listening to this song non-stop now that I'm in Bintulu for no good reason. From now on I will do some song translations upon request. This will be my first attempt. Constructive criticisms welcomed

陳綺貞 - 孩子

也許 我真的傻得可以
我想 我真的傻得可以 

In english now;

Cheer Chen - Children

Night is beautiful when it came
Day is bright when it came
Qhat am i in your memory
Am i dusk or am i dawn

Whether we loved completely
I've been confused from the start
Confronting myself in the mirror
My words don't reflect my actions

My silliness maybe true,
and i may not understand your implication
I'm scared i made a mistake
your most pampered children

My silliness wants to remain
In fact, i've already convinced myself
I'm scared i made a mistake
Your one and only

Music Introduction : Spandau Ballet - True

Tony Hadley!!!!! This is what the 80s was all about :). Lip motion doesn't match the song though :(

Music Introduction : The Beatles - I am the Walrus

From one of my most endeared bands, you really gotta see the lyrics to know how fucked up this song is.

Music Introduction : Death Cab For Cutie - I Will Follow You Into The Dark

Don't know why I like this version the most. Maybe it's because of the singalong crowds.

Music Introduction : K-Ci & Jojo - Lately

I know Stevie Wonder is the original singer to this, but you just gotta love Jodeci's rendition of this legendary song. Oh and please dont mind the half naked black man in the video :)

Music Introduction : Mariah Carey - Open Arms

An old remake by Mariah Carey. Awesome vocals as usual.

Music Introduction : Claude Debussy - Arabesque No.1

Feeling fucked up today as lots of unfortunate things happen. Might blog bout it later. But for now, music introduction as always. My selection for today is a quiet little number from one of my all time favourite movies, All About Lily Chou-Chou.

I'm not kidding. I'm a big fan of Claude Debussy AFTER watching All About Lily Chou-Chou. This is the version that's truest to the film. The faster version might be easier to digest but I still prefer this version the best :)

Music Introduction : Various - Moody's Mood for Love

Fuck the Amy Winehouse version, this is the real thing. This is how its supposed to be sung. Although most parts of the songs are of clever improvisation, somehow you feel Miss Winehouse improvised to the "wrong" direction. Feel the smoothness of Brian Mcknight's voice and tell me you are not in the heaven of love after listening.


Music Introduction : Queen - Don't Stop Me Now

Queen, at its most energetic.

Music Introduction : Herman's Hermits - Something tells me I'm into something good

Please don't mind the clip of The Sims. I couldn't find a better quality of this song. There's another version of this song by the original singer Earl Jean. YT for that if you wanna listen to that version. It's better composed and arranged of this popular sunshine song.
