Me, Myself and Mayvelous

Archive for the ‘Lyrics’ Category

Phwe - Icy7venIt’s been a while since I last posted 7ven music; I know some of you miss it. :P You see, the amazing ME has been busy and lacking inspiration to sing; age is catching up. Truth be told, the main reason for lack of music post on mayvelous is cos’ our dear O’ Icy went back to Yangon for a few month. She just came back last week and must have brought back quite a few Karaoke CDs. She was telling me about the latest hits from home the other day and sent me these three songs that she tried out. As her most faithful fan, I have the honour of listening her songs first and am given the freedom of praise or criticize about them ruthlessly. ha`ha`

The three songs she sent are: (more…)

I haven’t been following any news, feeds or even personal emails. Just now I ran through GV flags quickly and found this one interesting so checked out the link. It really makes me smile so just sharing here. Some GVers translated back into various languages haha. Amusing indeed.

You’re No One If You’re Not On Twitter – The Twitter song.

You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter
And if you aren’t there already you’ve missed it
If you haven’t been bookmarked, retweeted and blogged
You might as well not have existed

In the old days it was all about achievements
Collecting all your trophies in a shrine
Then everybody came across the internet
And suddenly you had to be online

A home page was all you really needed
To seem like a success but not a geek
As long as you updated semi-annually
And checked your email once or twice a week

You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…

Technology was moving rather quickly
And the next thing you needed was a blog
With intimate and detailed press releases
And now and then a photo of your dog

More recently the students brought us Facebook
And everybody has a hundred friends
The parties in the photos look amazing
They’re not so great but everyone pretends

You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…

Now you need to publish every movement
And every single thought to cross your mind
I’m told the Twitterverse is full of rubbish
But most of us are actually quite refined

We validate each other’s insecurities
And brag about the gadgets that we’ve bought
We laugh out loud at every hint of jolliness
And try to self-promote without being caught

You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…

So are you somebody or nobody? Are you on twitter yet? Oh yes, luckly I’m someone on twitter. LOL

There is a video, mp3 download, TShirt and a few other stuffs about the Twitter song. Better go check out at I Hate Morning site.

Last time I wrote about my beloved Naruto. I’ve done watching all Naruto episodes from the first serie and am up to #18 of Naruto Shippuden sequel. The characters are getting face lifts in this new serie; their cloths have been changed, characters gone ugly and even their voice changed (kind of). Since it’s airing once a week, we have to wait for at least 1 or 2 weeks to download. So I’m in the process of waiting the next episode #19.

While I’m waiting for Naruto, we’ve watched a couple of other animes as well. The followings are some of the animes we watched recently.

Bleach : [ Wiki ]

250px-Bleach_cover_01I’ve heard some good reviews about Bleach so I decided to check it out. I must say it does live up to my expectations. Bleach is interesting, fun, full of actions and rapidly dwelling your interest. Although the characters are not that cute compare to Naruto, the actions scenes are very well drawn. Before downloading Bleach, my bro and I have a hard time deciding whether to choose Bleach or Death Note for both of them were top rated animes at that time. Then my bro decided that he doesn’t like the Death Note story and wanted to watch longer episodes, we started downloading Bleach.

After watching a few episodes of Bleach, I wasn’t sure which one I like more – Naruto or Bleach cos’ they both are great in their own ways. Bleach got more actions with little story development. Naruto got a good story build up and is funnier. I guess Naruto is for younger audience since the characters themselves are younger compare to those in Bleach. Still, both of them are superb and hard to decide which is better.

Saiunkoku Monogatari : [ Wiki ] [ Characters ] [ Characters Graphical ]

613367-c28Ok to make it short, I love everything about this anime. The story is lovely and characters are just soooo cute! Currently it’s their second season but they licensed the show so previous sub-titler group dropped the project and was halted. But I heard another group has started picking again so hopefully we get to see/catch up the second season episodes soon.

Now, about the theme songs; every anime has opening and closing theme songs. In Naruto and Bleach, they changed lots of songs already since they’ve been on air for many seasons. For Saiunkoku, I love both opening and closing songs especially the closing song, “Saikou no Kataomoi“. The vocal is very sweet and can go too high note. Notice the very beginning of the song, there is one long – pitch note. I thought it was some sort of flute or instrumental sound but actually it really is the singer’s vocal. Man, she can sing or what? I try to scream like that but my throat gone kapoot as soon as I open my mouth. (Khway A’ Hlal Ninn pi htwet tal a tan lo pal) LOL Definitely it’s not my key. Oh and the vocalist, Tainaka Sachi, looks like Chaw Su Khin…the mouth I mean. I searched for the mp3 files but couldn’t find it before; lucky enough someone uploaded them on idols-unlimited a few weeks back and I quickly grabbed them from there. The 2nd song being my favorite, I’ve been listening repeatedly almost everyday and I don’t seem to get tired of it yet. I’m a sucker for this kind of slow, tiny, sweet melodious songs, some what good to sleep with. ahehehe.

The ending song has been changed in the second season and the opening graphic looks terrible. I love the opening graphic from the first season; they should have kept it. Graphic from part two of the first season is also good but for some reason second season opening graphic sucks. Anyways, if you like cute characters and lovely story, you should watch this anime. Make sure to listen to the following two songs too. I bet you’ll like it.

Music: 7ven Idols + Maria

Sorry for the late post this week. No excuses, I’m just being lazy to post. Anyways, this week pick includes a lovely Tongan song and more of 7ven’s old songs. You can also check out previous posts here:
# 7ven Idols + Glass Alley

Phwe SoloPhwe – Icy7ven
This week I got two songs from Phwe’s old collections. “Ta Di Ya Nay Mhar Par” is about rememberence of the old university by Mie Mie Win Phay and Phwe sang it pretty well, though I think the song should be abit slower cos’ it’s suppose to be a sad song. “Pa Soe Nae Tite Pong” is Phwe’s favorite. The song is about wearing Burmese traditional dress – a gal is telling her bf to wear proper dress when he come see her parents. Her parents don’t like baggy cloths and next time if he doesn’t wear proper clothing, she will not accept him. It’s a good song though I find it kinda funny.

Tu’I kolongahau kaikoa
A friend from Tonga forwarded me this beautiful song. This is the first time for me to listen a Tongan song and I like it. Sometimes back, one of my friend sent me a PNG song which also has the similar name Maria or Mae in it. Unfortunately I misplaced the file and couldn’t find it back. But I think PNG and Tongan dialect are a bit similar…may be not. I also lost a CD with many good songs from South Pacific – Polynesia, Melanesia, Micronesia and all those small island nations. I’ve been losing things lately, hmm so bad! Anyways, I requested the song details and here is what he sent me. Sweet isn’t it. I bet his gal must be really touched by it.

[ WMA ] Tu’I kolongahau kaikoa – Oh, my dear Maria

About the song:This song has been played throughout the three local and secular radio stations in Tonga: FM 88.6, FM 90 and AM 110.03

I wrote this in dedication to my current girlfriend. Her name is Demarise, who is currently studying in Africa. Due to the long distance relationship, and being, what we call it, ‘lovesick’ most of the time, I decided to put all my thoughts into a song, with my heart etched to it. The chorus of the song has her name in it.

I never thought this song would be recognized. I guess it’s just that I put my whole heart into it, where there are also others out there who can identify themselves with me. We all go through times when you think you will go crazy just missing somebody you love so much. I have translated the lyrics of the song in English, though I wish you knew Tongan because the heat of the matter is better explained in my mother tongue language, Tongan.

Read, listen and enjoy. And to all you lovebirds out there, just hang in there!

English Translation

Oh, my dear Maria

As the wind blows from the northern hemisphere
My thoughts are just filled with you
I don’t see anything else but your face in my dreams
It actually relieves me of the pain I feel (in heart and mind)

Oh, oh, oh, my Maria…

In the evening when the sun is about to set
It reminds me of your beautiful smile
I think of nothing and nobody else but you alone
Yes, the love of my heart (my lover)

Oh how I wish that I were near you
The thought of it just takes my breath away
Yes, I so cannot wait for that day
When I pledge you myself (body, heart, mind and soul)

# NB. The file is in .wma format and it got some keys in it. Just download it and you should be able to play as many times as you wish.
Thanks Hayden and Tu’i-K-K for the song.

Bula Dress 1May – G7ven
And finally this two is from me. “A Pyin Pyay Nya Nay” is about a girl day dreaming in a boring evening and sings about the thing she sees on the street. It’s L Sine Ze’s song and my recording is crap, overriding her vocal. “Nha Ko Tu Chit Ta Mhya” is very OLD song from a very OLD movie – “Thingyan Moe”, singing about two love birds. It’s a duet song but I sang for both. I can’t keep up the vocals … oh well…who cares!

Music Pick: Slow Mix

Let me start this week music pick with two hot songs.

Beyonce + Shakira – Beautiful Lier

You don’t want to miss this. This one is an amazing combo of the two most favorite singers’ new song. Both of them are so HOT; Beyonce as a wild sexy woman while Shakira on the other hand is more sophisticated one with captivate charms. There was a comment about Shakira being the REAL reason behind Global Warming and I think I have to second on that. LOL

Shakira + Beyonce

The song by itself is not that outstanding but you must check out youTube video. You’ll be replaying more than once for sure. Both of them got great vocal but Shakaria got this unique throaty-nosy voice which is more attractive in my opinion. Beyonce learn the salted-worm moves from the worm queen Shakira. I still prefer Shakira on those moves. I think Beyonce is much better with her wild leach-mambos.

Ok if you don’t like worms and leaches then we could say…Jelly Shake and Shivering. But come to think of it, Jelly can’t twist and turn; they only bounce from side to side. So Shakari is definitely a worm and as for beyonce, I must say…she is more like shivering jelly. Hehe

They should make more songs with the combo, the record will sell like crazy. I want to see trio – Beyonce, Shakira and JLo, wow that gonna be so cool.

[ YouTube ] [ Lyric ]

Rihanna + Nicole Scherzinger – Winning Women

Rihanna + Nicole

Last week we got www, this week it’s ww.
This is another hot pair – young, beautiful and talented Rihanna team up with Nichole, ultra thin hot chic, the lead singer from Pussy Cat Dolls (PCD). It’s for a new TV ad “Fusion Deodorant” or something. Not bad.

Ok enough with combos, I was planning to post some slow, nice songs this week but I just have to post the first two. Now back to my picks.

Norah Jones – Thinking About You + Wake Me Up

nottoolate_lg You must have heard of her, she was the top hit a few year back with “Come Away With Me” song. This two songs are from her new album, Not Too Late, which selling with a great number. She’s very good at making you sleep. I listen her songs whenever I want to sleep, and it takes me only half of her songs then I’ll be sleeping like a log. She got this unique vocal which is kind of drowsy yet sweet. I only like this two songs the most from “Not Too Late” album. Others are just too sleepy to keep listening.

[ YouTube ] [ Lyrics ] Thinking About You
[ Lyric ] Wake Me Up

Emma Bunton – All I Need To Know

Emma Bunton Haven’t seen her for ages, she was one of the Spice Girls back in the old days. Emma looking abit oldish in the video but vocal is still sweet in this beautiful song.

[ YouTube ][ Lyric ]

Jewel – Quest For Love

Jewel Jewel is not really my favorite but I still like her. She’s more like country style or something. A friend of mine loves her songs, so this is for her. It’s from Jewel’s new album, “Alice in he wonder land”.

[ YouTube ] [ Lyric ]

Sarah Brightman – Stranger In Paradise

Sarah BrightmanShe is one of the classical vocalists. You know those sing with loud, pitchy, tiny voices in opera and stuffs. Yah, her songs are not that classic but they are slow and nice to listen. I like it anyway. It’s good to sleep with.

[ Lyric ]

And…that’s about it. Enjoy! ;)

  • This week music pick featuring five songs from Katharine McPhee’s, a runner up of last year American Idol, latest album – “Katharine McPhee”.

    She has a voice similar to Kelly Clarkson, Joss Stone, quite a bit of Christina and Beyonce mixed. But hers is abit softer, not big one like Joss Stone and not that strong like Christina. Some songs she sings like Kelly Clarkson and in some her style is very similar to Beyonce.

    Katharine McPhee - Katharine McPhee

    Katharine Hope McPhee (born March 25, 1984) is an American singer who was the runner-up to Taylor Hicks on the fifth season of American Idol in 2006.

    IMHO, she has all it needs, the age, the look, the vocal and the attitude to become a great pop star. She follows a lot like Kelly Clarkson. Though I still prefer Kelly Clarkson cos’ she got more confidence vocal and very charismatic, I also believe Katharine will do great as she shows her potentials in this debut album.

    I’m not sure how Katharine performs on stage as I’ve never seen her music video or the idol show. To be a great star needs not only vocal but the sensational look too. I already like her look and most of her songs from the album so a thumb up from me.

    Here is my favorite 5 from the album.

    Dangerous – this one is the top list from her album I think, it’s pretty cool. My #1. Sounded like Christina.

    Katharine McPhee5Dangerous. He’ll steal your heart away, then run away.
    He’s dangerous. Protect your heart, he’ll tear it apart.
    Dangerous. He’ll steal your heart away, then run and play.
    He’s dangerous. Protect your heart, he’ll tear it apart.

    [ Lyrics ]

    Over It – Jr. Kelly Clarkson with a tint of Gwen on the chorus part. 2nd best.

    Katharine McPhee3Oh and that’s why
    Your eyes… I’m over it.
    You’re smile… I’m over it.
    Realized… I’m over it, I’m over it, I’m over…
    Wanting you to be wanting me.
    No, that ain’t no way to be.
    How I feel.
    Read my lips.
    Because I’m so over…

    [ Lyrics ]

    Love Story – I like the beat from here.

    Katharine McPhee2It’s a typical love story
    We started out as friends
    We met way back when
    This is just a
    Typical love story

    [ Lyrics ]

    Neglected – A slow one, I like the chorus part.

    Katharine McPhee4The more you try to tell me that you changed
    the more i feel neglected
    if this is how you try to make it up to me
    then let’s just end it
    I dont, like this feeling any more
    I dont, like this feeling
    cause whenever i’m around you boy i know that i won’t be respected
    just neglected

    [ Lyrics ]

    Ordinary World – Slow one too, love the lyric. She is just Jr. Beyonce in this one.

    Katharine McPhee1Close your eyes and feel me hold you
    Can you lead me through this ordinary world
    Let the sky cry, restless rain to wash away the miles
    Between us, ’cause without you it’s just an ordinary world

    [ Lyrics ]
