dreaming in stereo


French band singing in Italian and English languages apparently for Sofia Coppola sounding like Julian Casablancas or the Strokes.
Confused? Don't. It's pretty cool :)
Have a safe weekend and a beautiful July :}

the souvenir

A song about young people who had to emigrate to have a job.

The sun has already set on the hill. _ The port is almost empty. _ Cars are crossing the bridge. _ Fog over the river.
This day ends where _ there's no light at town. _ The silence doesn't answer _ if someone saw her in passage.
If I fail to miss you _ you've left in your place _ a souvenir to remind me _ that I'll visit you. _ A souvenir to remind...
Oh woodland, so far already _ give me news from that cold faraway. _ Don't stop to be the bridge _ of this gentil group.
Half the world went to London. _ Mariana went to Brazil _ to take the pitcher to the fountain _ of the thousand waters of April.

OK not OK 20 years


Surely a masterpiece (for some "the" Radiohead's masterpiece) "OK Computer" was released 20 years ago. But this great album still sounds so new, it seems it was made 2 or 5 years ago.
For this 20th anniversary, Radiohead promised to launch 3 unreleased songs for this album.
Here's the 1st one, out a few hours ago with their "paranoid android".
Have a nice weekend :)

Have a cool evening :)


2 weeks ago, I was surprised by Radar's Family Album topic, but amazed, because I wasn't expecting (my ignorance) that Al Green's music could be so cool.
In fact, I only had a distant idea of this original version. And as we know, queen Tina Turner turned it very famous 12 years later :)
This live recording shown here has a little jump in the middle but it's very special as you can notice. I'd love to post it together with one of Green's 1st live performances but all of them have very poor quality. Only to have an idea and a comparison of two distante times, here's this example cut 1 minute before the ending.
Cheers!

Eurovision: music won again

Eurovision Song Contest once was a festival where some of the most beautiful songs in Europe could compete.
However, many of the best songs could never win due to some kind of mafia ruling the record market.
By the early 70's, the festival turned into a hateful cheesy horror contest of high notes performances wrapped in some fashion rhythm with some few exceptions, like Sébastien Tellier with a song that I've already posted here without mentioning the creepy festival.
Things started to change a bit not only because the record companies are not the kings of the music industry anymore, but also because in this competition there's this new rule of the audience voting. And you can't vote for your own country.
I never ever imagined myself making a post like this. To show you how I hate this festival, I even did not know this song at all.
But this time, music won again.
I made a translation (bellow the 1st clip) of this beautiful song, entirely composed by our (here in KoM) well known Luísa Sobral, to be sung by her brother Salvador.
Here he is, taking his sister to the stage for the final honour encore:

If someday someone asks about me - say that I lived to love you. - Before you, I merely existed - tired, with nothing to give.

My darling, listen to my prayers. - I beg you to come back, to want me again - I know, you can't love alone - maybe sweetly you might learn again. (2x)

If your heart won't wish to give in - feeling no passion, wishing no suffering - without planning whats coming after - my heart can love for us both.

Here's the 1st public presentation of this song:

And here's Luisa singing the same song:

Have a lovely Sunday, have a beautiful week :}

from the Lost Music Sessions

So finally someone uploaded the beautiful videoclip that 1stly was officially hosted in Yahoo Music and disappeared forever with the site revision about 4 years ago or something. This is a copy recorded from MTV and hosted in Youtube.
I 1stly posted this clip 9 years ago in another place. It was the take 4 of a series that I called "The Lost Musics Sessions" and I reposted it purposely untitled here in KoM.

For TV broadcasting purposes, the song was shortened in 3 minutes and so, here's it all:

Have a peaceful weekend :}

mainland



Homem ao mar!
Que isso é inundar!
Tens o vento pela frente!
A sorte é quem vai ao leme!
Eu fico cá!

Ao acordar,
mais valia flutuar!
Que esses dias, tão dormentes!
E és só sobrevivente do azar!

Tu só queres chegar a algum lado!
tuuu, só queres chegar a algum lado, (uuuu)

Homem ao mar!
Que a promessa é para pagar!
Levas os filhos na corrente,
é o peso que tu tens de carregar.

Se afundares,
quem me dera não olhar,
ficas suspenso no presente,
com a certeza que caso em qualquer lugar

Tu só queres chegar a algum lado
tuuuu, só queres chegar a algum lado.
E o teu coração navega em contramão
o teu coração navega em contramão
o teu coração, navega em contramão

Leva a bandeira,
carrega o pesadelo,
terra firme só, não vale,
porto seguro é não ter medo
(5x)

(nightmare)
Man overboard!
You're flooding!
You're sailing upwind
Your luck is who's steering!
I stay ashore!

Waking up,
I would rather float.
Those days were so painful,
you're only survival of bad luck.

You just want to get somewhere!
You just want to get somewhere! (oooo)

Man overboard!
The promise has to be paid!
You're taking your sons with the current ,
that's the weight you have to carry.

If you sink,
I wish I don't look.
You'll stay suspended in the present,
with the certainty that I'll marry anywhere.

You just want to get somewhere!
You just want to get somewhere!
And your heart is sailing against traffic
your heart is sailing the wrong way
your heart is sailing the wrong way

Take the flag,
carry the nightmare,
only mainland is not worth it!
Having no fear is a safe harbor.
(5x)

post-party post for Val :D


He does not scold me , And wants to play always , He's my best friend , I can count on him.
If I don't wake up in the morning , When I have to . He drags my sheets , Looking for a foot to lick.
My dog likes to play with the ball , And to watch me playing video games.
My dog is the most beautiful of all , Smart like no other , Even when life goes wrong , I know he'll always be my dog.
I give him half of my snack , Without my mother watching , I lay my head on his belly , When I want to fall asleep.
My dog likes to play with the ball , And to watch me playing video games.
My dog is the most beautiful of all , Smart like no other , Even when life goes wrong , I know he'll always be my dog.

Dance Birthday Party


The goal of this post with 3 dance songs in repeat (or posted before) is to create a 15 minutes dance party :)
The idea is to have all 3 clips ready to play when we want without waiting to have non-stop chain music :) To have the clips ready to run, start playing all 3 clips at the same time, pause them and put their timelines at 0. And then, start the party with the 1st clip. When the 1st clip starts ending, start to play the 2nd clip at the same time. And the same to the next clip, and so on, as much as anyone wants to enjoy this party in loop :D

Happy Birthday, queen Vallie :}

it's Val's day!


warming up birthday's party :D

Ladies and gentlemen, Mercy


Mercy is, I can say, a new band from New York consisting of singer-songwriter Mercy Weiss and the musicians Christopher Pellnat and Erin Pellnat.
Mercy Weiss is not only a cute girl but also with very seductive voice and jazzy singing style.
I'm thankful to Christopher for showing me their work and pleased to share it. Enjoy :)

This man, who left us yesterday, personifies Liberty in all senses and we'll never be thankful enough.
