Taylor Swift Hunger Games Lyrics

Posted on 15 February 2012 by Flisha

Here are the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s “Safe and Sound” single off the Hunger Games soundtrack. Beautiful and haunting, very appropriate for The Hunger Games. I like it very much.

I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, I’ll never let you go
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said, Don’t leave me here alone
But all that’s dead and gone and passed tonight

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You’ll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I’ll be safe and sound

Don’t you dare look out your window

Darling, everything’s on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold onto this lullaby
Even when the music’s gone
Gone

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You’ll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I’ll be safe and sound

Just close your eyes
You’ll be alright
Come morning light,
You and I’ll be safe and sound…

Taylor Swift Hunger Games Song

Posted on 15 February 2012 by Flisha

Taylor Swift has two songs for The Hunger Games soundtrack, and the first one is entitled “Safe and Sound”.

Here is the MTV for the Taylor Swift Hunger Games song.

Apparently Taylor is a fan of The Hunger Games. The song is a refreshing new direction for Taylor Swift and I think her voice is more suited to these whimsical, soft folk music tones rather country/pop.

The writer of Safe and Sound are Taylor Swift, Joy Williams, John Paul White, T Bone Burnett.

Posted on 15 February 2012 by Flisha

Oh I did not know Taylor Swift was doing the Hunger Games soundtrack! Here is Taylor’s video for the single “Safe and Sound” released by MTV:

It’s nice, yeah? I like it… appropriate sound for Katniss’ sadness, I think. Here are the lyrics for Safe & Sound:

I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, I’ll never let you go
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said, Don’t leave me here alone
But all that’s dead and gone and passed tonight

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You’ll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I’ll be safe and sound

Don’t you dare look out your window

Darling, everything’s on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold onto this lullaby
Even when the music’s gone
Gone

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You’ll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I’ll be safe and sound

Just close your eyes
You’ll be alright
Come morning light,
You and I’ll be safe and sound…

Madonna’s Halftime Show on Super Bowl XLVI

Posted on 07 February 2012 by Flisha

Can I just say, WOW! Madonna killed it on her halftime show in the 46th Superbowl.

I love that she performed Vogue and Like a Prayer and some snippets here and there of the songs that made her the icon that she is now. Those songs are gold. :)

She introduced some new collaborations too. Overall I liked her setlist. But I LOVED the set and the dancing and the performance! Here, watch it yourself!

I love the opening shot! Men in golden gladiator attire – by the dozens!!! Oh yeah!!!

It’s like a fleet on men! And the stage!!! What a production huh?

Her first song is Vogue! I love how she loves to treat her men like slaves, sitting on them, making them wear atrocious clothing, haha! She should have performed Human Nature too.

I was amazed by the set. They super maximized the field!! I’d have loved to be there in person to see the field light up with these amazing graphics.

Her next song is Music, and she stumbles for a bit. Good thing she didn’t fall!! Dancing on the bleachers looks scary to me!!

Then there is this guy who balances on a string and does crazy jumps on it!! Wow! I wonder who he is?!? Is he a gymnast? Stuntman? That part was cool!

Next she performs with these two guys called LMFAO. I haven’t heard of them before this, but the song Shuffling is catchy.

She also performs with Nicki Minaj and MIA, and I found out it’s actually a new song Madonna has out called “Give Me All Your Love”. Wow, lucky girls.

Lastly, she performs “Like a Virgin” with – so random – CEELO! First look at this shot. Isn’t it gorgeous!!! Yeah, they got the dancers all dressed up like a choir – this after Madonna danced with cheerleaders and half-naked gladiators. Hahaha I love how she loves to mix up religion with scandal.

Here she is with Ceelo, who I’m not sure what’s he’s supposed to be here. Preacher? Backup singer? Dancer?

“Oh God I think I’m falling… out of the skyyyyyy…”

“Life is a mystery. Everyone must stand alone. I hear you call my name… and it feels like…”

“Home.”

I’m glad Madonna didn’t wear any skimpy outfits. She’s aging well. Don’t hate on her and say it’s the botox and the surgeries. Hey if one my day my looks start to fail and I can afford it, I’ll do the same thing. But I think she really just takes good care of herself, eating healthy and doing yoga and Pilates and being a good mother to her kids. Being happy makes her beautiful.

I can see why she’s a superstar. :)

Korean Adele Park Ji Min

Posted on 22 January 2012 by Flisha

Can Park Ji Min, dubbed as South Korea’s “Adele”, sound exactly the same as Adele?

You may be surprised. Listen to her rendition of “Rolling in the Deep” below.

I would have thought her Korean accent would affect the way she sang but, wow, looks like she memorized every note and nuance of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”! Well done!

Ok now somebody get her something original.

Monte Carlo OST

Posted on 03 July 2011 by Flisha

♪ Who says you’re not star potential, who says you’re not presidential?

Who says? Who says you’re not perfect? Who says you’re not worth it? Who says you’re the only one that’s hurting? Trust me, that’s the price of beauty. Who says you’re not pretty? Who says you’re not beautiful? Who says? ♫

Monte Carlo OST 2011

Those are lyrics from the song “Who Says” from the OST of Monte Carlo. I just came from the Greenbelt where I watched the movie starring Selena Gomez (yes, she sang the song too!). As expected, it was a feel good movie that was light, fluffy and with a predictably happy ending. Yes, I love movies like these. Hahah. :)

I’ve watched so many blockbuster movies this year – Pirates, Green Lantern, Super 8, Transformers, etc. Sure, they were amazing and left me dizzy with all the twists and action shots and special effects… But sometimes I just want to relax and watch a movie where I know it will be colorful, pretty, fun and full of cute guys. Haha. :) Wish granted!!

If you like Disney movies, you will like this flick. And the Australian guy is hot. :)

I love the music too! As you know since I just sang the lyrics to you in the beginning of this post, haha. In fact, I’m playing it on loud right now, and on an endless loop. It’s so bubbly!!

Cuando (Comic Relief) Translation

Posted on 10 February 2011 by Flisha

Another song by Comic Relief. This time it’s a Chavacano song that a suitor can sing to his beloved. :) It’s called Cuando. Or in English, When?

Cuando?
COMIC RELIEF

I.
Quetal man tu ahora?
How are you now?
Tiene donde anda?
Do you have somewhere to go?
Libre ba tu?
Are you free?
Puede yo lleva pasya?
Can I take you out?

II.
Pacencia conmigo
Please bear with me
Si bodi man yo
If I’m penniless
Pero prekura iyo dale contigo el todo
But I will try to give you everything

Refrain:
Hinde ba tu ta sinti
Don’t you feel?
Jalo lang que supri
It’s fine to suffer
Ta canta yo ‘te cancion
I am singing this song
Con todo mi corazon
With all my heart
Pati mi pensamiento…
And all my mind

Chorus:
Cuando?
When?
Cuando contesta?
When will you answer me?
Pirmi yo ta resa na kita dos ay keda
I am always praying that you and I will be
Bien dulce dos letra pirmi yo ta espera
So sweet, two letters, I am always waiting for
Cuando tu contesta?
When will you answer?
Si hinde ahora, cuando?
If not today, then when?
Cuando?
When?

III.
Todo el ora
All the time
Iyo ta pensa
I am thinking
Si OK ba tu?
Are you OK?
Ta come ba tu na ora
Are you eating on time?

IV.
Perdona tu conmigo
Forgive me
Si quebrao man yo
If I seem broken
Pero prekura iyo cambia lang para contigo
But I will try to change just for you

Here is the original video, but I warn you. It’s not pretty. In fact it just shows how boys can be “cochinadas”! That means “filthy” or “disgusting”. If you want to call someone disgusting you just yell at him “Cochino bos!!!” (You pig!). ;)

Nohay Mas (Nuay Mas by Comic Relief) Translation

Posted on 10 February 2011 by Flisha

This is a song by Comic Relief, a Zamboanga band. Since Maldita just got a music contract, I am hoping Comic Relief will too. Because they have great songs. :)

comic relief band

Here is one of my favorites. It’s entitled, “No Hay Mas.” (Okay, well, the band titled it as Nuay Mas but it’s the wrong spelling. :D So I am just correcting it. Sorry, OC.)

Intro: A-C#m-F#m-D-E
Stanza: A-C#m-F#m-D-E
Chorus: A-C#m-F#m-D-E

(repeat chorus)

I.
Hinde ba ya abla ya iyo
Didn’t I tell you already?
No quiere mas iyo contigo
I don’t love you anymore
Cuanto beses necesita abla
How many times do I need to say it?
Sum-ut ya yo man bira-bira
I’m sick and tired of running around in circles

Chorus:
No sabe porque
I don’t know why
Hinde tu ta kre/No quiere tu kre
You don’t believe me/You don’t want to believe me
Manada rason
There are so many reasons
Puede ba entende
I wish you would understand
Di mio amor
My love
Hinay ta perde/Bigla ya perde
Is slowly fading/Has suddenly faded
Etu el rason
You are the reason
Mi corazon ta duele
My heart is hurting

II.
Mira derecho na mi ojos
Look me in the eye
No mas estranja si yo tan lejos
Stop worrying if I walk away
Alegre yo cuando kita pa dos
I was happy when we were together
Pensaba yo llega ta años
I thought we would reach years

Bridge:
Donde ya el amor
Where is the love?
Perdido ya pero porque pa necesita porsa
It’s gone but why do we need to force it?
Hace yo sale na mi pecho
I am taking off my chest
El maga sentimiento
All these feelings
Tiempo ya
It’s about time

Cosa yo ya palta
What did I lack?
Para tu ay rabya
For you to be angry?
Todo’l dia comigo etu ta pelya
Everyday, you argued with me
Mas bueno gaha yo ya lang separta
Perhaps it’s better that I leave first
Para nohay mas ya
So that there is no more…
Nohay mas ya kita
…No more “us”

Porque (Maldita) Translation

Posted on 08 February 2011 by Flisha

Gim and I were on the taxi on the way to SM Megamall a couple of days ago chattering as usual. The music from the radio seemed very familiar but it didn’t sink in until about halfway through the song, I realized, the song was in Chavacano! :) It was the song “Porque” by Maldita, a Zamboanga band. I was so elated!

That song was a hit back home but I hadn’t realized it was getting Manila airplays too. Until the taxi ride. And – what a surprise – there was some part sung in Tagalog too! But those parts weren’t that good, the song was more beautiful with Chavacano words.

Porque means “Why” in Chavacano. The single is the first released by Maldita, originally a local Zamboanga band. Vocalists are Francel de Leon and Demz Espinosa.

Other members of the band:
Drums – Mad Nubhan
Guitars – James Collin Medina, Whey Guevarra
Keyboard – Jesser Sison

maldita tagalog version

Here is the translation of Porque by Maldita, if anyone is looking for it. :)

Solo solo na mi cuarto
All alone in my room
Hende ta puede durmi
Cannot sleep
Bira-bira na cabesa
Back and forth, swirling in my mind
El dolor yo ya cinti
The pain I felt

Porque pa contigo yo ya quiere?
Why did I have to fall for you?
Como bula lang tu ya perde
But like a bubble you just disappeared

Porque contigo yo ya escuji?
Why was it that I chose you?
Ahora mi corazon ta supri
Now my heart is suffering
Bien simple lang iyo ta pidi
What a simple thing to ask
Era cinti tu el cosa yo ya cinti
I hope you feel what I feel
Ta pidi milagro, bira’l tiempo
Asking for a miracle, to turn back time
El mali hace derecho
All the wrong, make right
Na dimio rezo ta pidi yo
In my prayer, I am asking
Era olvida yo contigo
To forget you

Todo-todo yo ya dale
Everything, I gave
Ahora ta aripinti
Now I am regretting
Sobra-sobra el dolencia
The pain is too much
Tormento para vivi
Living is a torment

Porque pa contigo yo ya quiere?
Why did I have to love you?
Como bula lang tu ya perde
Like a bubble you disappeared

Porque contigo yo ya escuji?
Why did I have to choose you?
Ahora mi corazon ta supri
Now my heart is suffering
Bien simple lang iyo ta pidi
What a simple thing to ask
Era cinti tu el cosa yo ya cinti

I am asking for a miracle, to turn back time
El mali hace derecho
Turn the wrong things right
Na dimio rezo ta pidi yo
In my prayers, I ask

No tu distorba
Don’t you bother me
Y no atraka kay baka palmadia yo contigo
And don’t you come near me, I just might slap you
Nunca accepta
Never will I accept
Si tu ay bira por dolor ya cinti
Your return, for the pain I felt

Porque contigo yo ya escuji?
Why did I have to choose you?
Ahora mi corazon ta supri
Now my heart is suffering
