This week music pick got to be Nelly Furtado’s Loose album cos’ I’ve been listening this album for weeks and it’s growing on me. Every single song in there is unique in its own way. The beats have never been repeated. Just love her vocal, style and the music. Well ofcos I can’t share the whole album with you but I picked out some I like. Quite hard to pick since I like it all. I guess the followings touched me quite intensely so here they are.

Thanks Forlani for the album.

Nelly Furtado

I bet most of you already got the two most hit songs – [ YouTube ] Promiscuous and [ YouTube ] Maneater so I won’t add mp3 for that.

All Good Things – A slow and nice song. The chorus will grow on you. “Flames to dust, Lovers to friends, Why do all good things come to an end…” Love the dog barking moon bit too.

Nelly Furtado - LooseWell the dogs were barking at a new moon
Whistling a new tune
Hoping it would come soon
And the sun was wondering if it should stay away for a day til the feeling went away
And the sky was falling on the clouds were dropping and
the rain forgot how to bring salvation
the dogs were barking at the new moon
Whistling a new tune
Hoping it would come soon so that they could die.

[ Lyrics + YouTube ]

Glow – Just glow yarrh!

Nelly Furtado - PromiscuousMake me glow glow glow glow
How far can you go
Make me glow glow glow glow
How far can you go
You make me glow glow glow glow
Only you know how to make me
Glow glow glow glow
I wanna go and go and go and go

[ Lyrics + YouTube ]

Say It Right – Check out the YouTube video, she looks cute in there. Mumbling at the guy’s ear haha.

Nelly Furtado 4Oh you don’t mean nothing at all to me
No you don’t mean nothing at all to me
Do you got what it takes to set me free
Oh you could mean everything to me

[ Lyrics + YouTube ]

Afraid – Pretty fast beats.

Nelly Furtado 2So afraid of what people might say
But that’s okay cuz you’re only human
So afraid of what people might say
But that’s okay you’ll soon get strong enough
So afraid of what people might say
But that’s okay cuz you’re only human
So afraid of what people might say you’re going to break
so please don’t do it

[ Lyrics ]

Wait For You – I like the starting beat from this one very much and also at the end there is this drum (indian kind) beats is interesting. Pretty cool.

Nelly Furtado - ManeaterI’ll wait for you until the heavens fall
I’ll wait for you until the end of the world
I’ll wait for you until I no longer breathe
I know that it’s not impossible
I’ll wait for you until you finish your fight
I’ll wait for you until the timing is right
I’ll wait for you until you knock on my door
Cuz right now it’s feeling just like a movie yeah yeah…

[ Lyrics ]

In God’s Hands – This is slow one and quite meaningful too. So just added it as a bonus.

Nelly Furtado 1Now our love’s floating out the window
Our love’s floating out the back door
Our love’s floating up in the sky in heaven
Where it began back in God’s hands

[ Lyrics ]

Love this spanish song – Te Busque, which I think also included in her previous album. There are two version (English and Spanish), I prefer the Spanish version though I don’t understand a single word. Dig through the following chorus translation for my own amusment.

Spanish Version
Yo te busque de bajo de las piedras y no te encontré
En la mañana fría y en la noche te busque
Hasta enloquecer
Pero tu llegaste a mi vida como una luz
Sanando las heridas de mi corazon
Haciendo me-sentir vivo otra vez”

English Translation
I looked for you under the stones but I could not find you
In the cold morning and in the night I looked for you
until it drove me mad
But you arrived into my life like a ray of light
you healed the hurts in my heart
and you made me feel alive once more.

Okie, there you have it. Enjoy, Ta Tar!
