No Vs. Not




Neverstore - So Much of not Enough


I've never felt like this before

A bad feeling I've been trying to ignore

So, this is it?
we won´t give it
another chance, do you say?
No explanations, only silence
and it's tearing me apart

So, tell me! so, tell me! What I've done?

I wonder, I wonder, how it got so wrong?

It hurts so bad all those things you said
I feel so cheap, used and untidy


It's all the small things adding up

I've been burning bridges just felt like giving up

That burning flame is not the same, it never felt like fire
A tiny voice is whispering your name and I'm going insane

So, tell me! so, tell me! What I've done?

I wonder, I wonder, how it got so wrong?

It hurts so bad all those things you said
I feel so cheap, used and untidy
Everything I do, reminds me of what´s you
Maybe we had too much in common

I can not feel love
and I can not feel pain
That of course is all the same
and killing time is still my favourite game


So, tell me!


It hurts so bad all those things you said
I feel so cheap, used and untidy

It hurts so bad all those things you said (So, tell me!) (So, tell me!)
I feel so cheap, used and untidy (So, tell me!) (So, tell me!)

W Interview [4]



Estuve buscando alguna versión de la canción
que suena de fondo en esta entrevista
"Oh que será" en Inglés, pero no la encontré...

Sin embargo encontré otra canción muy bonita,
con un estilo italiano,
que expresa una frase similar en escritura,
aunque diferente en significado
(Esta habla de futuro... ¿Que será cuando crezca?):





When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother: What will I be?
Will I be pretty? Will I be rich?
Here's what she said to me:

¿Que será, será?
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
¿Que será, será?
What will be, will be?

When I grew up and fell in love
I asked my sweetheart: What lies ahead?
Will we have rainbows day after day?
Here's what my sweetheart said:

¿Que será, será?
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
¿Que será, será?
What will be, will be?

Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother: What will I be?
Will I be handsome? Will I be rich?
I tell them tenderly:

¿Que será, será?
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
¿Que será, será?
What will be, will be?
¿Que será, será?

Aserejé (I said a hip)

A veces oímos una canción, nos gusta,
y tratamos de tararearla aunque no nos la sepamos,
ni la entendamos.

Ese es el caso del famoso -Aserejé-, cantado por las Ketchup *
cuyo coro es una rápida y recortada transliteración
de un estribillo de otra canción llamada
Rapper's Delight de los Sugar Hill Gang.

El primer video
(De los 2 que verán en este artículo)
es algo especial.

No lo canta el grupo original
sino alguien que se la había aprendido
a oídas (Bastante Aproximado)
sin haber visto la letra.

después con el tiempo,
conoció la letra real y la mezcló en un video
con su versión ya grabada de la canción.

Es por eso que no siempre coinciden,
pero se le reconoce el esfuerzo,
y se le agradece el video que sirve
para contrastar fácilmente las dos canciones.

El asunto es curioso, pero no lo menciono como burla.

Por el contrario,
oír una canción, tratar de deducir lo que dice,
y luego contrastar con la letra real,
es un buen ejercicio para afinar nuestro oído
y mejorar nuestra escucha de el idioma Inglés.





(Presiona el botón HQ
cuando empiece cada video
y el de -al lado derecho de ese-
para ver con mejor calidad
y a pantalla completa)



* Ketchup = Salsa de Tomate.

Eligieron ese nombre en homenaje a su padre Juan Muñoz “El Tomate”.

Jive

Jive es una forma un poco alocada o confusa de hacer algo.
Ya sea bailar, mover las manos + , o de hablar + + .



I know a cat named Way Out Willie
He's got a cool little chick named Rockin' Nillie
He can walk, and stroll, and Susie Q *
And do that crazy Hand Jive too

Papa told Willie, you'll ruin my home
You and that Hand Jive have got to go
Willie said, Papa, don't put me down
They're doing the Hand Jive all over town


Hand Jive, Hand Jive, Hand Jive, doin' that crazy Hand Jive


Mama, Mama look at Uncle Joe
He's doing that Hand Jive with Sister Flo
Grandma gave baby sister a dime
Said, do that Hand Jive one more time

A the doctor, and the lawyer, and Indian chief
They all dig that crazy beat
Way Out Willie gave 'em all a treat
When he did that Hand Jive with his feet


Hand Jive, Hand Jive, Hand Jive, doin' that crazy Hand Jive



El Susie Q es un paso o conjunto de pasos de baile
que ha ido teniendo sus variaciones con el tiempo
y dentro de cada diferente género musical.

A Teenager In Love - Dion And The Belmonts



Each time we have a quarrel
it almost breaks my heart
Cause I'm so afraid
that we will have to part

Each night I ask the stars up above:

Why must I be a teenager in love?


One day I feel so happy
next day I feel so sad
I guess I'll learn to take
the good with the bad

Each night I ask the stars up above:

Why must I be a teenager in love?


I cried a tear
for nobody but you
I'll be so lonely
if you should say we're through


Well, if you want to make me cry
that won't be so hard to do
And if you should say goodbye
I'll still go on loving you


Each night I ask the stars up above:

Why must I be a teenager in love?


I cried a tear
for nobody but you
I'll be a lonely one
if you should say we're through


Well, if you want to make me cry
that won't be so hard to do
And if you should say goodbye
I'll still go on loving you


Each night I ask the stars up above:

// Why must I be a teenager in love? (In love) //...

Did You Ever See a Dream Walking?




Did you ever see a dream walking?
Well, I did!

Did you ever hear a dream talking?
Well, I did!


Did you ever have a dream thrill you
with: Will you be mine?

Oh, it's so grand!
and it's too... Too divine!


Did you ever see a dream dancing?
Well, I did!

And, Did you ever see a dream romancing?
Well, I did!


Did you ever find heaven right in your arms
saying: I love you, I do?

Well, the dream that was walkin'
and the dream that was talkin'
and the heaven in my arms was you.

Close to You - The Carpenters, Cover By Leonor



Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

On the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue.

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around.
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

On the day that you were born
The angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold
And starlight in your eyes of blue.

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you all around.
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.
Just like me (Just like me)
They long to be
Close to you.

Guilty - Al Bowlly



Is it a sin?, is it a crime?
Loving you, dear, like I do
If it's a crime, then I'm guilty
Guilty of loving you

Maybe I'm wrong
Dreaming of you
Dreaming the lonely night through
If it's a crime, then I'm guilty
Guilty of dreaming of you

What can I do?
What can I say?
After I've taken the blame
You say you're through
You'll go your way
But I'll always feel just the same

Maybe I'm right
Maybe I'm wrong
Loving you, dear, like I do
If it's a crime, then I'm guilty
Guilty of loving you

Just Friends - Paul Dateh



Girl I know this might seem strange
But let me know if I'm out of order
For stepping to you this way

See I've been watching you for a while
And I just wanna let you know
That I'm really feeling your style

And I have to know your name
And leave you with my number
And I hope that you would call me someday

If you want you can give me yours too
And if you don't I ain't mad at you
We can still be cool 'cause...

I'm not trying to pressure you
Just can't stop thinkin' 'bout you
You ain't even really gotta be my girlfriend

I just wanna know your name
And maybe sometime
We can hook up, hang out, and just chillin


Damn I'm surprised that you called
'Cause the way you walked away
I thought I wasn't gone see you no more

Since you didn't wanna give me your name
I thought that you were iggin' me
And wasn't diggin' me

But anyway what you're doing tonight
I'll probably be with my peeps
If it's cool with you maybe we'll swing by

And you can just chill
Or you can just chill with me
As long as you're comfortable
And you feel secure when your with me 'cause

I'm not trying to pressure you
Just can't stop thinkin' about you
You ain't even really gotta be my girlfriend

I just wanna know your name
And maybe sometime
We'll hook up, hang out, just chillin


(Violin)


I'm not trying to pressure you
Just can't stop thinkin' 'bout you
You ain't even really gotta be my girlfriend
Oh...

I just wanna know your name
And maybe sometime
We can hook up, hang out, and just chill

Tears For Fears - Everybody Wants To Rule The World

Todos quieren gobernar las cosas que no son eternas,
y cuando llega la muerte todos se dan cuenta de que todo es vanidad.

¿Que lograron los Faraones de Egipto?
Nada queda de su poder...
¿De que les sirven sus majestuosas tumbas de piedra?
¿De que le sirve a Jackson que le adornen 'el cajón' de oro?

Algunos,
hacen lo malo.
Piensan que solo se vive esta vida
y quieren obtener el máximo placer de ella
sin importar los medio, el precio, ni las consecuencias.

Otros,
podemos disfrutarla
con respeto hacia nuestro entorno natural
y hacia los demás seres vivos,
pero sobre todo teniendo paz para con Dios,
para disfrutar también de lo que sigue...

La cosa no para aquí.




Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you

Acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on Mother Nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It's my own design
It's my own remorse
Help me to decide
Help me make the most

Of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do I'll be right behind you

So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision
Married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world

Say that you'll never, never, never, never need it
One headline why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts for ever
Everybody wants to rule the world

Africa - Toto





I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers
of some quiet conversation

She's coming in 12:30 flight
Her moonlit wings reflect the stars
that guide me towards salvation

I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some
old forgotten words or ancient melodies

He turned to me as if to say:
Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you!



[Chorus:]

It's gonna take a lot
to drag me away from you

There's nothing that a hundred men
or more could ever do

I bless the rains down in Africa

Gonna take some time
to do the things we never had... (Uh, Uh...)



The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing
for some solitary company

I know that I must do what's right
Sure as Kilimanjaro* rises
like Olympus above the Serengeti

I seek to cure what's deep inside
frightened of this thing that I've become


[Repeat chorus]

[Instrumental break]


Hurry boy, she's waiting there for you!

It's gonna take a lot
to drag me away from you

There's nothing that a hundred men
or more could ever do

//// I bless the rains down in Africa ////

Gonna take some time
to do the things we never had... (Uh, Uh...)

You Danced - Brian Bates

Las buenas noticias traen alegría
Ganas de bailar...



I walked among your people
I held your mud-stained hands
I touched your hungry children
When I traveled to your land

You drank your dirty water
I thought my heart might break
From all your desperate poverty
Then you left me amazed...


When you danced!
Threw your hands up in the air and laughed
At a secret you and heaven share
You danced!
With a joy that I just could not understand
In a simple act of praise
You danced


What time have I been wasting
Pursuing happiness
Yet never really learning
To be content with less

I wanna learn the secret
Of those who danced for me
With beautiful abandon
I wanna be that free...


When you danced!
Threw your hands up in the air and laughed
At a secret you and heaven share
You danced!
With a joy that I just could not understand
In a simple act of praise
You danced


If we stay close

Close to the source and drink from that well

The well that flows

Flows with the spring of life itself

Then the fullness of joy will be ours!

...

We'll dance!
Throw our hands up in the air and laugh
At a secret we and heaven share
We'll dance!
With a joy deeper than we understand
In a simple act of praise
With our hearts so full of thanks

We'll dance

I wanna learn the secret...


....

Be young, be foolish, be happy



/ Be young, be foolish, but be happy (Uh, uh, uh... Uh, uh, uh) /


Don't let the rain get you down, it's a waste of time (A waste of time)
Have your fun, live every day in the bright sunshine (Bright sunshine)

Well, it's the same old story all over the world:
Girl meets boy, and boy meets girl

/ (So) Be young, be foolish, but be happy (Uh, uh, uh... Uh, uh, uh) /

Don't let love slip away (Slip away)
Live your life for today (For today)

Life is too short to worry about unimportant things (Important things)
Reach for the sky, touch your star,
and you'll find your dreams (Find your dreams)

'Cause dreamin' alone, it's a shame indeed
but if you've got love that's all you need

/ (So) Be young, be foolish, but be happy (Uh, uh, uh... Uh, uh, uh) /
