• A Miracle in Warsaw - Tori Amos Concert [19th of June 2007]

    20 juin 2007, 23h16m

    Well, if I had died yesterday at 1.00 am,
    it would have been a blissful death. :D

    Tori Amos

    The concert was amazing.

    Tori played a lot of my favourite songs and in a way my heart wanted to burst out from my chest. Sexy Body and Soul, electrifying Caught a Lite Sneeze, sad Winter, mesmerizing Black-Dove (January), addictive Bouncing off Clouds, heartbreaking Hey Jupiter and many more as wonderful. The words won't describe their beauty though - you would have to be on the concert too. :)

    What's more, me and -Ellaine- (and many other people) got a chance to meet Tori in person. I managed to talk to her eye to eye for a few moments (which moved me so much I nearly cried) and then we hugged each other. :) It was a dream come true. She is an amazing woman: warm, gentle (but strong at the same time) and wise. I do love her wholeheartedly. :)

    Luckily, a bootleg will probably be available so we'll be given a souvenir of this wonderful event. :)
  • Guess the lyrics [theme: plants]

    26 déc. 2006, 21h00m

    1. Quote lyrics' fragments somewhat connected with one theme (here: plants).
    2. List the quotations in a random order and the artists' names in an alphabetic order.
    3. Let people guess the songs titles and their performers.
    4. Cross out the recognized lyrics.
    5. Googling is cheating, use only your head and music collection.

    I saw the trees crossing the moon
    I saw the stars and heaven above
    Shine on my own beautiful prayer
    Shining on my own beautiful love

    The Sky Lit Up

    Dig a little hole, not three inches round
    Spit your pit in the hole in the ground
    Weep upon the spot for the starving of me!
    Till up grow a fine young cherry tree

    Only Skin

    How about them transparent dangling carrots
    How about that ever elusive kudo

    Thank U

    In the night of matter
    Black flowers blossom
    Feathers on my breath


    I'm a tree that grows hearts
    One for each that you take
    You're the intruder hand
    I'm the branch that you break


    You said --
    you raced from Langley --
    pulling me underneath
    a Cherry Blossom

    Gold Dust

    The fading scent of summertime
    Arbutus trees and firs
    The glistening of rain-soaked moss
    Going to the dairy queen at dusk

    Departure Bay

    It's coming on Christmas
    They're cutting down trees


    My soul flies free like a willow tree
    Doo wee doo wee doo wee


    Zwierzę się wierzbom
    Z naszej rozłąki
    Wierzby wierzą
    Szeptom i łzom

    Szepty i łzy

    I wasn't born of a whistle or milked from a thistle at twilight
    No, I was all horns and thorns, sprung out fully formed, knock-kneed and upright

    Sawdust & Diamonds

    The flowers you gave me are rotting and still I refuse to throw them away
    Some of the bulbs never opened quite fully
    They might so I'm waiting and staying awake

    The Flowers

    Eye of Braille
    Hem of anorak
    Stem of wallflower
    Hair of doormat

    How to Be Invisible

    They took all the trees
    And put them in a tree museum
    And they charged the people
    A dollar and a half just to seem 'em

    Big Yellow Taxi

    Swirling black lilies totally ripe
    A secret code carved

    Pagan Poetry

    And you won't get me in a hole to rot--with your hemlock
    On the rocks.

    Coffee Homeground

    A jar of pickles catches the eye
    Made eye contact with a solitary pickle
    Bought the jar, took it home

    Reading Time With Pickle

    Boys get discovered as winter melts
    Flowers competing for the sun


    Have you seen our visitor? Look! Over the treetops!
    Newly conjured erections are making him a killing

    This Lamb Sells Condos

    Once I had a dream (once I had a dream)
    I dreamt the dream in green, grass green

  • Guess the lyrics (alternative version)

    19 août 2006, 12h29m

    1. Take your first 20 overall top artists (excluding strictly instrumental musicians).
    2. From each of them choose a song which is somewhat special to you.
    3. From each song choose a small fragment you like the most.
    4. List the quotations in a random order and the artists' names in your chart's order and let people guess the songs titles.
    5. Mark the quotation if someone guesses it right.
    6. Googling is cheating, use only your head and music collection.

    Padre oh padre
    Re degli elfi
    Mi sta toccando
    Male mi fa

    And they said when you empty your head you can actually see without your sight

    and if I'm hanging on to your shade
    I guess I'm way beyond the pale

    あなたの 思い出を - Anata no omoide wo [All my memories of you]
    両手に抱える - Ryoute ni kakaeru [I hold them in my hands]
    砂に飲み込まれた夢が - Suna ni nomikomareta yume ga [In my dream, I swallow the sand]
    すべて消えるその日まで - Subete kieru sono hi made [and everything will disappear that day]

    In this wading pool
    In this waiting room
    I elevate us down

    And the ground gave way beneath my feet
    And the earth took me in her arms
    Leaves covered my face
    Ants marched across my back
    Black sky opened up, blinding me

    Tak przykro o tym mówić, gdy
    Ty w plecy miłość wbijasz mi

    boku no koinu ga [my puppy]
    inaku no ta [isn't here]
    shiroi mimi shiroi senaka [he has white ears and a white back]
    itsumo isshou datanoni [even though we were always together]

    If I took you darling
    To the caverns of my heart
    Would you light the lamp dear?

    聞いて聞いて - Kiite kiite [Listen, listen]
    瞳閉じたら - Hitomi tojitara [If you close your eyes]
    風の 星の - Kaze no hoshi no [Wind, stars]
    歌が聴こえる - Uta ga kikoeru [You can hear their song]

    I just get home and then I leave again
    It's long ago and far away

    Put your hand over the side of the boat
    Put your hand over the side of the boat
    What do you feel?

    Mais une lettre offerte
    A ceux qui n'écrivent pas
    Pour que les mots résonnent enfin
    Comme un Ave Maria

    But I've heard there's joy untold
    Lays open like a road in front of me

    It's cloud illusions I recall
    I really don't know clouds at all

    I tylko czasem źle jej jest
    Gdy słyszy zakochanych śmiech
    Z błękitnych oczu kilka łez
    Spływa po jej policzkach z żalem

    Dare mo ga kono mori de shizuka na koe wo kiite [Everybody heard the silent voice in this forest]
    Zatsuon ni namida shita [and shed tears for the noise]
    3 25 15 21 23 1

    慣れない同士でよく頑張ったね - Nare nai doushi de yoku ganbatta ne [Unknown friends told me to do my best]
    間違った恋をしたけど - Machigatta koi wo shita kedo [I loved mistankenly]
    間違いではなかった - Machigai dewa nakatta [However, it was not a mistake]

    We're living in a den of thieves
    Rummaging for answers in the pages
    We're living in a den of thieves
    And it's contagious

    I believe
    This is heaven to no one else but me
    And I’ll defend it as long as
    I can be left here to linger in silence
