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

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?

Terdiam

mataku terus tertuju padamu
saat kulihat dirimu tersenyum
ingin aku menyapa

WE WILL NOT GO DOWN (Song for Gaza)

2 Jun

WE WILL NOT GO DOWN (Song for Gaza)
Composed by Michael Heart
Copyright 2009

A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who’s wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Good Charlotte – Stalker

1 Jun

Good Charlotte
Song: Stalker (Goldfinger Cover)
Album: Cardiology (2009)


Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh WOO!

She calls me on the phone
Hoping that I’m home
and that I’m alone
But when I say hello
I only hear dial tone
Outside my window she crept
Watching my every step

Oh oh oh
She’s following me
Oh oh oh
She’s out of her tree
Oh oh oh
She’s off of her rocker
I want to marry my stalker

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh WOO!

Sometimes she say she’s my mom
Looks like she doesn’t belong
She’s my own peeping tom
Flowers every day
The cops they tell her to stay
500 feets away
She’s sleeping on my doorstep
She hasn’t hurt me yet

Oh oh oh
She’s following me
Oh oh oh
She’s out of her tree
Oh oh oh
She’s off of her rocker
I want to marry my
I want to marry my
I want to marry my stalker

This morning she wasn’t there
I hope that she still cares
I almost gave up hope
But today I woke
to a private note
She says she’s going to jail
For going through my mail
But she’ll stay on my trail

Oh oh oh
She’s following me
Oh oh oh
She’s out of her tree
Oh oh oh
She’s off of her rocker
I want to marry my stalker
Oh oh oh
She’s following me
Oh oh oh
She’s out of her tree
Oh oh oh
She’s off of her rocker
I want to marry my
I want to marry my
I want to marry my stalker

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I want to marry my stalker

[vclip] Paramore – Misery Business

7 Apr

This is another videoclip that I recently found and fell in love with πŸ™‚

Eventhough Paramore had released their newest album Brand New Eyes in 2009, I still love to hear their latest album Riot! (2007) on my iTunes. Especially this song, Misery Business, its beat is kind of kind groovy and the videoclip is quite amusing (yeah.. I kind of love this word :p).

Enjoy!

PARAMORE
Song: Misery Business
Album: Riot! (2007)

(Hit that, hit that snare)
I’m in the business of misery,
Let’s take it from the top.
She’s got a body like an hourglass, it’s ticking like a clock.
It’s a matter of time before we all run out,
When I thought he was mine she caught him by the mouth.
I waited eight long months,
She finally set him free.
I told him I couldn’t lie he was the only one for me.
Two weeks and we’ve caught on fire,
She’s got it out for me,
But I wear the biggest smile.
Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now.
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now.
But God does it feel so good,
Cause I got him where I want him now.
And if you could then you know you would.
It’s gonna just feel so…
It just feels so good.
Second chances they don’t ever matter, people never change.
Once a whore you’re nothing more, I’m sorry, that’ll never change.
And about forgiveness, we’re both supposed to have exchanged.
I’m sorry honey, but I passed it up, now look this way.
Well there’s a million other girls who do it just like you.
Looking as innocent as possible to get to who,
They want and what they like it’s easy if you do it right.
Well I refuse, I refuse, I refuse!
Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now.
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now.
But God does it feel so good,
Cause I got him where I want him right now.
And if you could then you know you would.
It’s gonna just feel so…
It just feels so good.
I watched his wildest dreams come true
And not one of them involving you
Just watch my wildest dreams come true
Not one of them involving…
Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now.
Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now.
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now.
But God does it feel so good,
Cause I got him where I want him now.
And if you could then you know you would.
It’s gonna just feel so…
It just feels so good.
