Nothing compares to… another song by Sinead O’Connor.

Posted by waykate On Сентябрь - 6 - 2015ADD COMMENTS

Что-то долго мы не обновляли наш сайтик. Сегодня, вспоминая о недавно прошедшем дне Святого Валентина и только что случившемся 23-м февраля и в ожидании 8-го марта выкладываем текст и ссылку на новую — хотя и старую — песенку в исполнении Sinead O’Connor и Terry Hall:

All Kinds Of Everything.

Уверена — вам она очень понравится. Она простая и милая, и уже вполне весенняя.

Вот немножко об этой песне из Wikipedia:

«All Kinds of Everything» is a song written by Derry Lindsay and Jackie Smith which as performed by Dana won the Eurovision Song Contest 1970. Regarded as one of the stronger Contest entries[citation needed], «All Kinds of Everything» represented a return to the ballad form from the more energetic performances which had dominated Eurovision the previous years. Dana sings about all the things which remind her of her sweetheart, with the admission at the end of every verse that «all kinds of everything remind me of you». The recording by Dana became an international hit.

Sin?ad O’Connor and Terry Hall recorded «All Kinds of Everything» for the 1998 album A Song For Eurotrash; the track was also featured on O’Connor’s 2005 release Collaborations.

Все помнят хит 90-х «Nothing Compares 2U», странную и прекрасную Sinead и ее своеобразный, неповторимый голос. Сегодня мы решили напомнить вам о ней, а на днях разместим и еще одну из ее менее известных, но потрясающих песен — «Mandinka», с которой она выиграла Grammy в 1987 году. На сайдбаре вы сможете найти и другие песни этой неординарной исполнительницы.

О Шинейд читаем здесь.

An Englishman in New York. By Sting

I don’t drink coffee I take tea my dear, I like my toast done on the side. And you can hear it in my accent when I talk — I’m an Englishman in New York. See me walking down Fifth Avenue, A walking cane here at my side.    —  трость I take it everywhere I walk — I’m an Englishman in New York. I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien — пришелец, чужак I’m an Englishman in New York. I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien — легальный I’m an Englishman in New York. If «manners maketh man» as someone said, Then he’s the hero of the day. It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile — страдать от невежества Be yourself no matter what they say — что бы ни говорили I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien I’m an Englishman in New York I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien I’m an Englishman in New York Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety — скромность, благопристойность, дурная слава You could end up as the only one. Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society — мягкость, трезвость, редки At night a candle‘s brighter than the sun! — свеча Takes more than combat gear to make a man — боевое оснащение Takes more than license for a gun. Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can — противостоять, враг, избегать A gentleman will walk but never run. If «manners maketh man» as someone said — Then he’s the hero of the day. It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile — ты должен быть мужчиной, чтобы… Be yourself no matter what they say I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien I’m an Englishman in New York I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien I’m an Englishman in New York.

Michael Jackson — They don’t care about us.

Posted by waykate On Сентябрь - 6 - 2015ADD COMMENTS

They Don’t Care About Us» is the fourth single from Michael Jackson‘s album HIStory. The song remains one of the most controversial pieces Jackson ever composed. In the US, media scrutiny surrounding alleged antisemitic lyrics were the catalyst for Jackson issuing multiple apologies and re-recording the album–altering the lyrics for that particular track. The singer countered allegations of antisemitism, arguing that reviews had misinterpreted the context of the song, either unintentionally or deliberately. Musically, it is an aggressive hip-hop production about social ills. (see Wikipedia entry for more info).

«They Don’t Care About Us»

Skin head, dead head
Everybody’s gone bad
Situation, aggravation
Everybody’s allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody’s dog food
Bang bang, shot dead
Everybody’s gone mad

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Beat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Jew me, sue me
Everybody do me
Kick me, kike me
Don’t you black or white me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of hate
You’re rapin’ me of my pride
Oh, for God’s sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy…
Set me free

Skin head, dead head
Everybody’s gone bad
trepidation, speculation
Everybody’s allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody’s dog food
black man, black male
Throw your brother in jail

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of shame
They’re throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can’t believe this is the land from which I came
You know I do really hate to say it
The government don’t wanna see
But if Roosevelt was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, speculation
Everybody’s litigation
Beat me, bash me
You can never trash me
Hit me, kick me
You can never get me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

Some things in life they just don’t wanna see
But if Martin Luther was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be

Skin head, dead head
Everybody’s gone bad
Situation, segregation
Everybody’s allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody’s dog food
Kick me, strike me
Don’t you wrong or right me

All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that
They don’t really care about us

A nice song.

Сегодня — 500 miles.  Собственно, это кавер-версия песни The Proclaimers, когда-то  популярной шотландской поп-группы (см. Wikipedia).

Щелкнув на этой строке, вы развернете слова (lyrics) с пояснениями.

Alexander Rybak — 500 MILES

Gonna — разговорная форма be going to (сокращение в беглой неформальной речи). I’m gonna be = I’m going to be…

В этой песне giong to (gonna) употребляется не в значении «собираюсь, планирую что-то сделать», а в значении предсказания: «я точно однажды… (проснусь, напьюсь, буду одинок — см. по тексту).  Об этом значении необходимо знать, но в учебниках о нем принято говорить лишь на продвинутых уровнях.

Yeah = Yes (неформ.)

Get drunk — напиться

Grow old — состариться

Haver — болтать, говорить глупости, нести чушь

Pass on — передать

Lonely — одинокий (прилагательное!)

Lyrics:

When I wake up yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who wakes up next to you
When I go out yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who goes along with you

If I get drunk yes I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you
And if I haver yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s havering to you

But I’m gonna walk 500 miles
And I’m gonna walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walks 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

When I’m working yes I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s working hard for you
And when the money comes in for the work I’ll do
I’ll pass almost every penny on to you

When I come home yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who comes back home to you
And if I grow old well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s growing old with you

But I’m gonna walk 500 miles
And I’m gonna walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walks 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

When I’m lonely yes I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s lonely without you
When I’m dreaming yes I know I’m gonna dream
Dream about the time when I’m with you.

But I’m gonna walk 500 miles
And I’m gonna walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walks 1000 miles
To fall down at your door
