An ordinary path

I understand enough Mandarin, for it to serve me in my travels. So perhaps it is understanding what the lyrics mean that drew me to this song. Perhaps it is the poignant melody. Or both. The unofficial translation of the poetic Mandarin lyrics does not do it justice, yet it is the closest I could… Continue reading An ordinary path

Shadow, and will you be happy?

KPop sensation BTS released their album "Map of the Soul: 7" recently to international acclaim; the theme of this album addresses light and shadow of our existence. And listening to the songs I re-acquaint myself with the Jungian concepts of "light and shadow". It has been a while since I studied them. It has been… Continue reading Shadow, and will you be happy?

Heartbreak

Only the songs 🙂  and by an artiste I enjoy listening to...from his latest album "oh my messy mind". Somehow this song is fittingly depressing.   and this, ah I'm a sucker for heartbreak songs...   Sometimes we need to tap into these emotions, they make us who we are. ~ FlorenceT   © 2019… Continue reading Heartbreak

Songs of your life

What fun 🙂 In Ronovan's post, there is a link to a page where you can "find" the #1 hit during the week of your birth...  I couldn't resist. And... well, maybe our lives end up reflecting the philosophy of the top charted song of the week we were born in? Alright, I wasn't born… Continue reading Songs of your life

I am

This is a song from the "Suddenly Seventeen" movie soundtrack. The Chinese lyrics are poetic and nostalgic! I hope you get the gist from my less-than-poetic translation :-).   https://youtu.be/Tv-3nwFVchM 黑夜而闪耀 我                  Shining in the night, I am 流云却不走 我                  Passing clouds won’t overwhelm me, I am 转眼就开花 我                  Blooming in a blink of an… Continue reading I am

My new favourite song...     Oh, these lyrics... listen/read and weep. Tell me somethin', girl Are you happy in this modern world? Or do you need more? Is there somethin' else you're searchin' for? I'm falling In all the good times I find myself Longin' for change And in the bad times I fear… Continue reading Shallow – “A Star is Born”

I will remember

A song from decades ago ... apt for now. The lyrics first... ... And I don't understand How all this has come to pass How we've come to surround ourselves In a sea of thieves In a land without learning Only the fools believe ... I will remember There was a time we had the… Continue reading I will remember
