We love you already

12 Mar

I know that by posting this song in my blog, that might reveal my true age. But it’s okay. Because that’s how husband and I feel since we knew I’m pregnant.

Savage Garden might wrote this song to a girl they knew. However, this is still a love a song. For husband and I, this is our love song to Baby O. We knew we love Baby O before we met him.

Savage Garden
“I Knew I Loved You”

Maybe it’s intuition
But some things you just don’t question
Like in your eyes
I see my future in an instant
and there it goes
I think I’ve found my best friend
I know that it might sound more than
a little crazy but I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

There’s just no rhyme or reason
only this sense of completion
and in your eyes
I see the missing pieces
I’m searching for
I think I found my way home
I know that it might sound more than
a little crazy but I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

A thousand angels dance around you
I am complete now that I found you

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

I Had to Learn What I’ve Got…

You Can Take Everything I Have

You can break everything I am, like I’m made of glass, like I’m made of paper.

Can We?

13 May

I don’t listen to many Indonesian bands. Only those that has been proven as the good ones. So I might have not hear some of their songs, including this Not With Me song by Bondan Prakoso feat Fade 2 Black. BF made me hear it on one of our trip. Sad song on a joyous moment, pretty ironic I bet.

I don’t watch many doramas, only those that my sister and friends recommend me to watch. But I like the fact that I found the dorama version of this video clip when I browsed through Youtube. Because I don’t like the original one. Partly because it’s Indonesian (haha!), the other part is because of the sad ending, someone died.

Bondan Prakoso ft. Fade 2 Black
Not With Me

I’m walking up from my summers dreams again
try to thinking if you’re alright
then I’m shattered by the shadows of your eyes
knowing you’re still here by my side

*reff:
I can see you if you’re not with me
I can say to my self if you’re OKAY
I can feel you if you’re not with me
I can reach you my self, you show me the way

life was never be so easy as it seems
’till you come and bring your love inside
no matter space and distance make it look so far
still I know you’re still here by my side

back to *reff

yeah..you’ve made me so alive, you give the best for me..love and fantasy
yeah..and i never feel so lonely, coz you’re always here with me..yeah..always here with me

back to *reff

I’m walking up from my summers dreams again
try to thinking if you’re alright
then I’m shattered by the shadows of your eyes
knowing you’re still here by my side

Can we, beb? ❤

Lagu Persembahan Untuk Tim Nasional

30 Dec

Menyambung tulisan saya sebelumnya, ternyata kita masih belum bisa membawa pulang Piala AFF. Kalau mau lihat sisi positifnya, pecinta bola di Indonesia semakin bisa mendesak Nurdin Halid untuk mundur dari jabatannya. Walaupun saya yakin beliau tidak akan mau meletakkan jabatannya begitu saja. Muka badak, kulit setebal kulit gajah.

Tanggapan suporter bola di Indonesia pasca kekalahan timnas berbeda-beda. Ada yang bangga melihat permainan timnas di final leg kedua. Ada yang sedih karena piala yang sepertinya sudah dalam genggaman itu terlepas dari tangan. Ada yang masih belum bisa menerima kekalahan dengan mencari-cari kambing hitam penyebab timnas kalah.

Ada juga yang menyatakan, “kalah menang bukan yang utama, it’s just a game. Yang penting timnas sudah menunjukkan kemajuan dan timnas yang saat ini dirasa mampu untuk lebih berprestasi di masa depan. Kalau bukan positive thinking namanya, sepertinya menghibur diri lebih tepat.

Berapa banyak dari kamu yang hafal lagu Garuda di Dadaku?

Lagu kebangsaan milik suporter Indonesia itu sebenarnya sudah lama dinyanyikan di setiap pertandingan timnas. Hanya saja, lagu tersebut di-remake oleh band Netral sebagai soundtrack film berjudul sama dengan judul lagunya, Garuda di Dadaku, dengan penambahan beberapa baris lirik.

Berapa banyak dari kamu yang tau lagu persembahan band Weezer, Represent, untuk United States National Football Team selama World Cup 2010 kemarin?

Yuk kita bandingkan keduanya.

WEEZER
Represent

NETRAL
Garuda di Dadaku

I’m sick and tired of everybody trying to tell me what to do
If I’m in need of your advice then surely I would come to you
I didn’t get in this position just by happenstance
I work my bones beyond my limit just to have half a chance

Ayo putra bangsa
Harumkan negeri ini
Jadikan kita bangga
Indonesia

It matters how you play the game
It matters that you can take the pain
You don’t want to lie, steal, or cheat your way to the top
It matters what your people think
You represent your family
But that’s just one more reason to see
That it matters
Whether you win or lose

Jayalah negaraku
Tanah air tercinta
Indonesia raya

Why don’t we see who is the wizard and play some one on one
I think you’ll find me sympathetic to ya when I’ve won
It’s seems you’ve got the bone to beat me
If beef was all it takes
But I’ve got skills to pay the bills and punish each of your mistakes

Garuda di dadaku
Garuda kebanggaanku
Ku yakin hari ini pasti menang
Kobarkan semangatmu
Tunjukkan keinginanmu

One hundred years from now
They’ll look back on this day
Where are you going to be
And what are they going to say
I see my name in lights
The people call my name
It’s all up to you
Will you find your way?

Garuda di dadaku
Garuda kebanggaanku
Ku yakin hari ini pasti menang
Kobarkan semangatmu
Tunjukkan keinginanmu
Ku yakin hari ini pasti menang

It matters how you play the game
It matters that you can take the pain
You don’t want to lie, steal, or cheat your way to the top
It matters what your people think
You represent your family
But that’s just one more reason to see
That it matters
Whether you win or lose

Bedanya, penggalan Garuda di Dadaku bisa dinyanyikan suporter di setiap pertandingan sebagai yel-yel penyemangat timnas Indonesia. Sedangkan Represent sepertinya tidak dinyanyikan selama pertandingan oleh suporter US.

Dari lirik lagu, kesan yang saya dapat pun beda. Represent seolah ingin mengatakan pemikiran suporter US bahwa timnas US harus menang, kalau tidak ingin membuat malu keluarganya, bangsa Amerika. Sedangkan Garuda di Dadaku menyatakan pengharapan dan keyakinan suporter Indonesia bahwa timnas bisa menang.

Arogansi negara adidaya? Mungkin saja. Kerendahan hati bangsa timur? Mungkin saja.

Sebagai negara adidaya, suporter US terbiasa dengan superioritas, oleh karena itu menang dan kalah adalah hal yang penting bagi mereka, it’s beyond a game. Sebagai goal oriented, kemenangan (dalam segala hal) adalah mutlak bagi bangsa US (ditunjukkan dari lagu Represent).

Sebagai negara yang berperang dengan tangan sendiri dari penjajahan untuk mendapatkan kemerdekaan, menang dan kalah adalah nomor sekian bagi bangsa Indonesia. Bagi kita, yang penting adalah semangat berjuang yang ditunjukkan pemain timnas selama bertanding, di lapangan (ditunjukkan dari lagu Garuda di Dadaku).

Jadi, mungkin ada benarnya yang bilang bangga terhadap timnas walaupun tidak memenangkan Piala. Bisa jadi Perasaan tersebut memang benar-benar dirasakan sebagian suporter Indonesia, tidak hanya ucapan manis belaka. Apalagi bagi mereka yang menghargai proses dan tidak berorientasi pada hasil akhir semata.

Bagaimana menurut pendapat kamu?

Ku Terdiam Mengikuti Kontes Lagak dan Lagu

25 Oct

MALIQ & D’ESSENTIALS
Terdiam

mataku terus tertuju padamu
saat kulihat dirimu tersenyum
ingin aku menyapa
namun ku terdiam tak kulakukan

mungkinkah kau pun juga begitu
tahu kau masih malu mungkin
sungguh ingin ku sapa
namun ku terdiam tak kulakukan

apakah kau rasakan
getaranku pada dirimu
ku hanya duduk terdiam
menunggu untuk tahu namamu

ku menunggu untuk tahu namamu
namun ku terdiam tak kulakukan

apakah kau rasakan
getaranku pada dirimu
ku hanya duduk terdiam
menunggu untuk tahu namamu

mataku terus tertuju padamu
inginku sapa dirimu
namun ku masih malu tuk hampiri dirimu
diriku terdiam, aku menunggu, aku terpaku

Worth to Read Weblog[3]

20 Oct

To read the related-previous entry, click here.

I still remember the first time I knew that Jason Mraz was writing a blog himself. Yes, a blog, named Freshness Factor Five Thousand, not a personal website like the other celebrities do. Of course he also has a personal website, his team takes care of it for him. But his own blog? He takes care of it for his fans 🙂 …and for his “own satisfaction”, like he said. Because he likes to write and therefore he’s a blogger. He also once stated on his twitter that he doesn’t tweet by himself, that his yoga instructor does this for him, because he’s more of a blogger not a microblogger. How sweet is that 😉 don’t you think?

The first time I did after I knew about this fact was linking his blog to mine, of course :p Whatelse could a fan like me do? Then finally I read his entries on blog, which turned out to be amazing ones. Amazing because he always courage us to become more aware about the earth and its environment. He shares his thoughts and mind about gratitude*) towards earth. He also shares his daily activities, in not a cheesy way, which also inspiring. Because he, in fact, is not living his life in a celebrity way. He lives his talks about becoming friendlier to the earth.

He’s a green activist himself, like Leonardo diCaprio 😉 From him and his articles, I learned not to buy mineral water anymore. Not because of the price, but because of the packaging bottle which is made of plastic. I succeed to follow this act, only until my own overpriced tumbler was broken :p Not that I follow him blindly. I also agree to his arguments. Thousand steps always start from a single one. If we can’t tell people to live greener, no problem. We start from ourself. Perhaps, the others will be inspired to follow our acts.

I remember a friend of mine said that Jason’s articles are kinda serious ones, a little bit heavy thoughts. I couldn’t say anything, but agree about this one. We know him as a famous musician. But if we hope to read his writing as a cheesy one,  believe me, we’ll never gonna get one. I actually glad to read his not-too-light-writings. This really is the kind of figure we wish to follow, right? Not those who regularly hit the rehabilitation center for their addictions to alcohol. He’s still a normal fine guy after all.

So, if you wish to be inspired, please do follow his blog 🙂 I remember I used to online via Snaptu on my handphone, only to read Jason’s blog on Snaptu’s Feed. Blogspot isn’t a friendly blogging platform due to bandwith, and neither is Snaptu.

If you know nothing who Jason Mraz is, please do google him :p
