    Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    I know Lampapa often posts here and there some bands or songs she comes across along with the lyrics and I thought it might be nice just to start a thread where we can post songs/albums of cutting edge, new music, or music that you are listening to now that is just your favorite and share/discuss them. I am by no means an expert. I just enjoy music as much as I enjoy films and photography, the arts as a whole. That, and I have two young daughters who keep my on my toes when it comes to what is going on in the music world! (At least in the U.S.)

    Additionally, music is a great way to learn new words! So, if you see any words in the lyrics and don’t understand them or the context they are being used, just ask!

    If you hear a new song in English or Russian or any other language and think we should know about it, post it along with the lyrics! You don't have to write a long review like I do; but, if you do write one in English, I'll try my best to correct any mistakes you might make. Or if you feel more comfortable post in Russian. While I only know American English, who knows...maybe I will actually learn a few Russian words!

    Finally, please give your or thumbs up /thumbs down of what you think about the music posted here! Is it a song you would add to your collection? Or now way no how, it is not your taste at all?

    So, for my first selection, I would like to introduce you to someone you may already know, Curt Smith. What? The name does not ring a bell? What about some of his older lyrics???

    “Shout, shout, let it all out, these are the things I can do without. Come on, I'm talking to you, come on.”

    Or

    “So glad we’ve almost made it. So sad they had to fade it. Everybody wants to rule the world.”

    Now do you remember him?????


    Curt was one of the founders of the 80’s band Tears for Fears. He launched a solo career and has a new CD out, “halfway, pleased”.

    His CD is far from the sounds of Tears For Fears, as Curt has grown, so has his style and voice. The music has a very alternative mellow relaxing sound that you can play in the background while you are on the computer, say on Master Russian, or trying to unwind from a stressful day.

    From his web site, you can listen to the entire song of each track on “halfway, pleased” and the lyrics for each song are there as well (what more could you ask for?). There are also links to his videos, the CD booklet to download in PDF, and for actually purchasing the songs too!

    I have selected two songs from this mellow CD for your listening pleasure. One last comment, as Curt originally hails from Bath, England, he uses British spelling and words in his lyrics.

    The first song is the duet version of “Seven of Sundays” and is in English AND French and is just a beautiful sensual song and pairing of the two voices along with the French is oh so romantic. I find myself putting this song on continuous repeat and I hope you enjoy. (If you like this duo, then you might also like this song that they did together, "Les Autres")

    Seven of Sundays
    http://www.curtsmithofficial.com/mus...s-duet-with-so
    By Charlton Pettus, Chesney Hawkes, Curt Smith and Sophie Saillet

    It's alright
    Got to tell myself it's alright
    Everything that I envied I have become
    Where to now?
    Now that I've been lost and found
    Buried in the afternoon
    Breathless and snowbound

    Safe as the ocean
    Shine like a motor car
    Seven of Sundays
    Of course you are

    Coming down
    Ice cream and a towel wrapped around
    Flowing hair the swallows me
    Follows me down
    It's OK
    Twisted sheets and endless rainy days
    Channels flash across your face
    Silence surrounds you

    Safe as the ocean………

    Seven of Sundays
    Of course you are


    The second song is “aeroplane


    aeroplane
    http://www.curtsmithofficial.com/music/track/aeroplane
    By Curt Smith and Charlton Pettus

    Shut down
    Tangled up in your machinery
    No sound
    Just the faceless press of words and wheels
    Surrounds me
    Like molasses on my soles and eaves
    Come out
    Can anyone come out and play

    All I want is an aeroplane
    Rubber-banded with paper wings
    All I want is to steal again
    All I want is a wet dream, ice-cream
    All I want is vanishing
    All I want is God

    Spit out
    By an undeserving dumb and mad
    No Ground
    Just an empty room of words and steel
    Winding down
    Drowning in the afternoon
    Come out
    Can anyone come out and play

    All I want……..

    All I want is vanishing

    All I want is an afterglow
    A forty-five on my gramophone
    All I want is a thick skin, to crawl into
    Everything’s vanishing
    All I want is God
    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    That was a nice tune, so I would give it a thumbs up. Wouldn't want a steady diet of it though.
    I've been listening to alot of Spanish language music lately and came across Rosana (sorry, not Roxana!).

    Ah..Spanish... I can help in that area...

    Take a listen to this one recorded once in Spanish and again in English by Hispanic artist Diego, who is trying to cross over into the "American" charts. He was the pick of the week by iTunes in May 2008 and is in Nickelodeon's Miranda Cosgrove's music video cover of "About You Now."

    Don't be fooled by this song. It starts off slowly and just as you start to think "boy band" it turns into a more power rockish song. After you listen to both... post which one you like better (anyone and everyone..not just Sperk).

    Spanish "Perdido en Ti"
    (BTW, the video has nothing to do with the lyrics. It is like they used the video shot for another song. Very odd.)

    Diego
    Losing Me (Perdido en Ti) lyrics
    Songwriters: Allan, Mitch; Dioguardi, Kara; Gonzalez, Diego; Guillermo, Rosas

    I don't know who I am anymore
    My world starts and stops
    Right outside your door
    I'm feeling weak
    And I can't sleep tonight

    Never thought that I would ever feel this way
    I'm hanging on to every word that you say
    And I’m beaten down
    I come around
    One look in your eyes and I am saved

    Whatever you want I want
    Whatever you feel I feel
    I follow you, I follow you, I follow you
    But I keep losing me

    You've taken all control of everything I know
    And I miss the days where I was happy on my own
    When I could breathe, when I could dream
    So break my heart and give me back my soul

    Whatever you want, I want
    Whatever you feel, I feel
    Cause I follow you, I follow you, I follow you
    But I keep losing

    Wherever you go, I go
    Whatever you need, I need
    See, I follow you, you know I do
    I follow you
    But I keep losing me

    I can't face it anymore
    Just give and then
    You take a break
    You hesitate
    Don't fake, you know it's true

    I don't wanna be like this
    I'm invisible
    One kiss and now it's gone
    And now I feel so wrong

    Whatever you want, I want
    Whatever you feel, I feel
    I follow you, you know I do
    I follow you

    Wherever you go, I go
    Whatever you need, I need
    See, I follow you (follow you), you know I do (know I do)
    I follow you
    But I keep losing me

    Whatever you go(whever you go), I go, (I follow you)
    Whatever you feel, I feel
    Cause(cuz) I follow you (But I keep losing me, but I keep losing me)
    Loving you's a sacrifice that ends up killing me
    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    Good thread idea!

    I try and rummage around the European music charts at least once a week or so, because I tend to enjoy European music a lot more than American, and I came across this amazing song which is apparently topping charts in at least Germany and Austria, so I'm not sure if any of the Russian posters here would have heard of it. It's called Stadt (City) by Cassandra Steen, and I really, really like it. Here's the youtube link, let me know what you all think.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jG1lujlMMsg

    Lyrics (in German):

    Es ist soviel so vielzuviel,
    überall Reklame
    soviel Brot und soviel Spiel,
    das Glück hat keinen Namen

    Alle Strassen sind befahrn,
    in den Herzen kalte Bilder
    keiner kann Gedanken lesen
    das Klima wird milder

    Ich bau ne Stadt für dich
    Aus Glas und Gold und Stein
    Und jede Strasse die hinausführt
    führt auch wieder rein
    ich bau eine Stadt für dich und für mich

    Keiner weiß mehr wie er aussieht
    oder wie er heißt
    alle sind hier auf der Flucht
    die Tränen sind aus Eis

    Es muss doch auch anders gehn
    so geht das nicht weiter
    wo find ich Halt wo find ich Schutz
    der Himmel is aus Blei hier

    Ich geb keine Antwort mehr
    auf die falschen Fragen
    die Zeit is rasend schnell verspielt
    und das Glück muss man jagen

    Eine Stadt in der es keine Angst gibt, nur Vertraun
    wo wir die Mauern aus Gier und Verächtlichkeit erbaun
    wo das Licht sich schnell legt, das Wasser hängt
    wo jedes Morgenrot und jeder Traum sich lohnt
    und für jeden Blick durch Zeit und Raum in unsre Herzen fliegt

    brandonp,

    German! I had not even thought of that language when setting up this thread. You have just improved this thread 1,000% as I know some of the forum members do know German as well as Russian!! It is just me that is the lonely single language person. I do know how to say Good Afternoon, Thank you, and I love you, in German... but I think that is about it.

    As for the song, it has a wonderful infectious rhythm/beat to it that draws you in from the start! The middle section is also nice with the female voice mixed in there. Who cares what they are singing about when your toes start tapping and your head starts bobbing right away??? (I did try to Google translate but I am certain it was not correct. If someone has the time, it would be great if they could please translate into English) I give this song two big
    Nice pick brandonp!!!

    Who is next to be brave and post a song... any language will do!

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    Ok here is one. You have got to listen through a bit of slap stick ... but the song is kinda bluesy and quite endearing in a way.

    It is called If It Kills Me by Jason Mraz

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epRKFobT7Uo

    Here are the Lyrics

    Hello, tell me you know
    Yeah, you figured me out
    Something gave it away
    And it would be such a beautiful moment
    To see the look on your face
    To know that I know that you know now

    And baby that's a case of my wishful thinking
    You know nothing
    Cause you and I
    Why, we go carrying on for hours, on and
    We get along much better
    Than you and your boyfriend

    Well all I really wanna do is love you
    A kind much closer than friends use
    But I still can't say it after all we've been through
    And all I really want from you is to feel me
    As the feeling inside keeps building
    And I will find a way to you if it kills me
    If it kills me

    Well how long, can I go on like this,
    Wishing to kiss you,
    Before I rightly explode?
    This double life I lead isn't healthy for me
    In fact it makes me nervous
    If I get caught I could be risking it all

    Baby there's a lot that I miss
    In case I'm wrong

    Well all I really wanna do is love you
    A kind much closer than friends use
    But I still can't say it after all we've been through
    And all I really want from you is to feel me
    As the feeling inside keeps building
    And I will find a way to you if it kills me
    If it kills me

    If I should be so bold
    I'd ask you to hold my heart in your hand
    Tell you from the start how I've longed to be your man
    But I never said a word
    I guess I'm gonna miss my chance again

    All I really wanna do is love you
    A kind much closer than friends use
    But I still can't say it after all we've been through
    And all I really want from you is to feel me
    As the feeling inside keeps building
    And I will find a way to you if it kills me
    If it kills me
    If it kills me
    I think it might kill me

    And all I really want from you is to feel me
    It's a feeling inside that keeps building
    And I will find a way to you if it kills me
    If it kills me
    If it kills me
    It might kill me

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    Here is a translation of the German song. If there are any mistakes (which may very well be the case), feel free to correct me.

    And Rockzmom: glad to have you back!



    There is so much, much to much,
    publicity everywhere
    so much bread and so much games,
    happiness doesn't have a name

    Cars are on all streets (loose translation!),
    cold images are in the heart
    no one can read thoughts
    the climate is getting milder

    I'm building a city for you
    out of glass and gold and stone
    and every street that leads out of it
    comes back in again
    I'm building a city for you and for me

    No one knows anymore what he looks like
    or what his name is
    everyone here is on the run
    the tears are made of ice

    But there should be another way
    it can't go on like this
    where can I find support, where can I find protection
    heaven here is made out of lead

    I don't give answers anymore
    to these incorrect questions
    time is lost so very quickly
    you have to chase happiness

    A city in which there is no fear, only trust
    where we build the walls out of greed and contempt
    where the light quickly lies, the water hangs
    where every dawn and every dream is worth it
    and for every glance through time and space flies into our heart

    Thanks, devochka for both the translation and the welcome back!!

    About the song emeraldeyez posted by Jason Mraz, my girls love one of his more popular songs called "I'm Yours" from the same album as the song "If It Kills Me," We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.

    "I'm Yours" is the 2nd longest running Hot 100 single of all time and 4th song to top the 4 million mark in paid downloads in the U.S. According to the I’m Yours Songfacts, Mraz told The Sun newspaper that this song is about “generosity. About giving yourself or your time to someone or something else.”

    This song has a Bob Marley style to it.

    I have lots of links here for you!

    Song: I'm Yours
    Artist: Jason Mraz
    Album: We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things
    Composer: Jason Mraz
    Lyrics: English

    Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
    I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
    I fell right through the cracks
    and now I'm trying to get back
    Before the cool done run out
    I'll be giving it my bestest
    Nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
    I reckon its again my turn to win some or learn some

    I won't hesitate no more, no more
    It cannot wait, I'm yours

    Well open up your mind and see like me
    Open up your plans and damn you're free
    Look into your heart and you'll find love love love
    Listen to the music of the moment maybe sing with me
    Ah, la peaceful melodys
    It's your God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love love

    So I won't hesitate no more, no more
    It cannot wait I'm sure
    There's no need to complicate
    Our time is short
    This is our fate, I'm yours

    I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
    And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
    But my breath fogged up the glass
    And so I drew a new face and laughed
    I guess what I'm saying is there ain't no better reason
    To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
    It's what we aim to do
    Our name is our virtue

    I won't hesitate no more, no more
    It cannot wait I'm sure
    There's no need to complicate
    Our time is short
    This is our fate, I'm yours

    Well no no, well open up your mind and see like me
    Open up your plans and damn you're free
    Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
    Listen to the music of the moment come and dance with me
    ah, la one big family ([2nd time:] ah, la happy family)
    It's your God-forsaken right to be loved love love love

    I won't hesitate no more
    Oh no more no more no more
    It's your God-forsaken right to be loved, I'm sure
    Theres no need to complicate
    Our time is short
    This is our fate, I'm yours

    No I won't hesitate no more, no more
    This cannot wait I'm sure
    There's no need to complicate
    Our time is short
    This is our fate, I'm yours, I'm yours

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    [video:3kj8jjz4]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_Xm3Ftvy3g[/video:3kj8jjz4]

    Снежинка

    Над костром пролетает снежинка,
    Как огромный седой вертолет.
    На виске расчирикалась жилка -
    Все проходит и это пройдет.
    Разыгралась в тайге непогода,
    Здесь в июле с погодой беда,
    Я друзей не видал по полгода,
    Я жены не видал никогда.

    Из-под снега нарою морошек,
    Отогрею и высосу сок.
    Тихо сохнут портянки в горошек
    И палатки добротный кусок,
    Мы свои не меняем привычки
    Вдалеке от родимых домов:
    В рюкзаке моем сало и спички
    И Тургенева восемь томов.

    Ну а ты, моя нежная Пери,
    Мой надежный страховочный крюк,
    Через бури, года и метели
    Я тебе эту песню дарю.
    Пусть мелодия мчится как птица,
    Пусть расскажет её перебор,
    Что кладу я на вашу столицу
    Вот такой вот таежный прибор.

    На вокзалы кладу и аллеи,
    На Мослифт, Москонцерт и Мосгаз.
    На Лужкова с его юбилеем
    Я кладу 850 раз.
    На убогие ваши сужденья,
    На бесстыжий столичный бардак,
    И отдельно с большим наслажденьем
    Я кладу на московский Спартак.

    Не понять вам, живущим в квартирах,
    Педерасам, студентам, жидам.
    Красоты настоящего мира,
    Где бродить только нам, мужикам,
    Где не любят слова и ужимки,
    И похожая на самолет,
    Над костром пролетает снежинка,
    Как огромный седой вертолет

    No thanks for this song.
    I'd advise you against posting stuff like that unless you want to get banned and seen as a homophob and racist/antisemite.

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    Everyone,

    I started a Playlist of the songs that we are discussing on this thread. Songs that I can find on "playlist.com" I put on a playlist called Rockzmom and it is up and running! I hope that everyone will be able to access it. I will keep adding to it as we go. I could not find any songs by Curt Smith as a solo and found some by Cassandra Steen, just not Stadt.

    7/24/09...I was able to figure out how to add songs that they don't have. So, now the Playlist has the two Curt Smith songs and the Cassandra Steen song as well!

    Here is the link! Master Russian Song Playlist

    You didn't understand the CONTEXT. Зал понял, и они смеялись.

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    I agree with Studyr.

    By the way, Lampada, the word жиды in that context had nothing to do with jews. Also, the other word you found offensive does not always mean a homosexual.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Whatever. I just hope we'll never see here anything like that.

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    Just so all of you know how cutting edge we are here on Master Russian… back on December 1st, xRossterx and I were discussing on this thread the Kings of Leon (KOL). At that time, I had just heard of KOL and XRoosterx had told me that he had gone to school with some of the band members. Well, since then, KOL has won their first Grammy, been on the cover of Rolling Stone and SPIN magazines. They have also had a number one hit with the song “Use Somebody.”

    What is interesting is that back in November, when the girls and I met KOL, neither the three of us nor any of their friends had EVER heard of KOL before. NOW, 7 months later, “Use Somebody” is being played all the time on the top 40 radio station here and the video is in the top 20 on VH1, so all their friends now know KOL and the song. How much has changed for this group in just 7 months!

    Song: Use Somebody
    Artist: Kings of Leon
    Album: Only by the Night
    Composer: Caleb Followill/Jared Followill/Matthew Followill/Nathan Followill
    Lyrics: English

    I've been roaming around
    Always looking down at all I see
    Painted faces, fill the places I can’t reach

    You know that I could use somebody
    You know that I could use somebody

    Someone like you, And all you know, And how you speak
    Countless lovers under cover of the street

    You know that I could use somebody
    You know that I could use somebody
    Someone like you

    Off in the night, while you live it up, I'm off to sleep
    Waging wars to shape the poet and the beat
    I hope it's gonna make you notice
    I hope it's gonna make you notice

    Someone like me
    Someone like me
    Someone like me, somebody

    Someone like you, somebody
    Someone like you, somebody
    Someone like you, somebody

    I've been roaming around,
    Always looking down at all I see
    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.

    Studyr...

    Would you mind very much letting me know what the few words are that come up on the screen during the video and if you know the name of the group?

    For now, I will add try to add this song to the Playlist without the name of the artist.

    Thanks.
