because I promised

Gomen, gomen! I'm just really busy with too many other projects.

3 songs today:

ONE:
Artist: Tina
Song: Sunshine Love
Language: Japanese
Format + Size: MP3 ... 4.18MB
Download: HERE
Comments: First heard this song when I was visiting China in 2000. Saw the video clip for it -- basically Tina on a beach, shot in black and white. Fell in love with her voice. Took forever to track down this song. It's the fourth track on her Orario album. It's pop but Tina's gorgeous voice gives it a soul kind of feel -- she sounds deep like Joss Stone, and just as powerful, I'd almost compare her with MISIA. This is posted for kuremachisu.


TWO:
Artist: Stefanie Sun (Sun Yan Zi ... sorry, can't be bothered doing the chinese characters)
Song: Someone
Language: English
Format + Size: MP3 ... 3.13MB
Download: HERE
Comments: I had the album (forgot which one it was) and this song was the one that struck me the most. Though, I'm not sure if this is a cover of anything. Anyway, it's got an eerie rock feel to it. Love it. Took me ages to find, but am happy to now have the mp3 version.

My hair was long & shining
You said you can't believe
How could I walk out that door
Or walk along the streets

You told me I should "you know,
do some bing bang curly wurly afro thing"
I took your word & did
Looked in my mirror "Who's that freak?"

Why does the world deceive
Why do I make believe
Took my heel & made
Achilles out of me still
I would wanna be

Someone who'd answer to me
Someone who see like a child
Give like a saint Feel like an angel
Never mind the broken wings and

Speak like a picture Cry like the rain
Shine like the star As long as the fire remains

The vase beside my bed It's empty almost dead
"It's for all the flowers I'm gonna give you" he said
And now it's collecting dust instead

Why does the world deceive
Why do I make believe
Took my heel & made
Achilles out of me still
I would wanna be

Someone who'd answer to me
Someone who see like a child
Give like a saint Feel like an angel
Never mind the broken wings and

Speak like a picture Cry like the rain
Shine like the star As long as the fire remains

Someone who see like a child
Give like a saint Feel like an angel
Never mind the broken wings and
Speak like a picture Cry like the rain
Shine like the star As long as the fire remains


THREE:
Artist: Stefanie Sun (yes, again) and Kuraki Mai
Song: My Story Your Song
Language: Engrish
Format + Size: MP3 ... 4.24MB
Download: HERE
Comments: This lovely duet was downloaded out of curiosity, and now I'm really glad I did. This song gets so much play on my Winamp. It's rock pop, though the lyrics kind of hint at folk. Great to sing along to, and their accents, while noticeable, aren't cringe-worthy.

Is your smile genuine Are you that really kind
Do you like money & what it can bring

Where would you wanna hide What would you seek
Would you want what you thought What you want if no one can see

See the pretty lights pretty smiles a long way from home
See the wretched stars burnt-out sun Out on your own

See our story come sing along What would you know
This is your song This is your song

Is your smile genuine Are you that really kind
Do you like money & what it can bring

Where would you wanna hide What would you seek
Would you want what you thought What you want if no one can see

Is your smile genuine Are you that really kind
Do you like money & what it can bring

Where would you wanna hide What would you seek
Would you want what you thought What you want if no one can see

See the pretty lights pretty smiles a long way from home
See the wretched stars burnt-out sun Out on your own

See our story come sing along What would you know
This is your song This is your song

Oh I know where I'd rather be So I'm holding on & going strong
Joining the wrists we must be giving good we'll be good as new

See the pretty lights pretty smiles a long way from home
See the pretty lights pretty smiles a long way from home

See the wretched stars burnt out sun Out on your own
See the wretched stars burnt out sun Out on your own

See our story come sing along What would you know
This is your song This is your song


Dear kuremachisu,

I had intended to post up Mavis Fan's I Want Us To Be Together, as well as Valen Hsu's What Dreams May Come, however I could not find my translations for the two songs, so instead I posted Someone and My Story Your Song. As soon as I find the translations, I'll post up the songs, as well as some Origa (Russian singer, compare to Enya) and Quarashi (Swedish rap/rock group).

'til then! Ja ne!

Wyse
