• A year in music - Days 1 to 3

    3 Ene 2015, 18:02 de Hollow0ne

    Alright, let's get this party really started! This is my top 365 tracks (as of January 3rd 2015, according to Last.FM charts). Song per day, that is, of course.

    So let's begin with the first three entries, all of them which share the same joint 361st position:

    Day 1, (shared) 361. Roxette - Spending My Time (from the album Joyride)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eG0IYV6G0I0

    My cousin had recorded Joyride on cassette when it was released. I was six years old when I first heard it. When I was younger I preferred their rockier and faster songs like Joyride and Hot Blooded, but since then I've learned to appreciate their melodic ballad-stuff too.

    Marie Fredriksson's voice is usually underrated and easily competes with the likes of, say, Madonna or Annie Lennox or any Idols-winner of this or any decade. She is one of the best female pop singers in my book and with Per Gessle's ear for melodies and songwriting skills, it's a match made in heaven. Or atleast in Sweden.

    Ще року не пройшло, пишу по гарячих слідах :)

    Отже, 10 березня збулася давня мрія моєї юності: я потрапив на концерт Roxette. Квиток замовляв через Flaer.com.ua. Купляти квиток у фан-зоні не хотілося, бо я в тому залі вже був і знаю, що з моїм зором це все одно, що дивитися блошиний цирк. Взяв квиток посередині залу, але збоку (найдешевших квитків у партері тоді вже не було). Дуже сподівався на передні пусті місця, і, як виявилося, розрахунок був правильний. Ще коли зал розігрівали Диверсанты, я пересів ближче (ще й посередині). Коли мене звідти зігнали, пересів ближче, потім ще раз і зрештою опинився в десятому ряді :) Десь на другій пісні найзапекліші фани ломанулися в прохід до сцени. Поки охоронці, які весь концерт стояли спиною до сцени (бідні!), оговталися й прогнали нахаб на свої місця, я встиг потусуватися в кількох метрах від шведів, які начебто й не звертали увагу на всю цю метушню.

    Було відчуття, що цього не може бути, все це надто просто. …

    Sun 24 Jul – Roxette
    Vi klarade oss från regn iaf men det var mulet och kallt hela kvällen. Och konserten lyfte aldrig riktigt. Bäst var förmodligen publikens tolkning av Spending My Time. Jag saknade mina favoritlåtar Soul Deep och Queen of Rain.

    What's the time?
    Seems its already morning
    I see the sky, its so beautiful and blue
    The TV's on
    But the only thing showing is a picture of you

    Oh, I get up and make myself some coffee
    I try to read a bit but the story's too thin
    Then I thank the Lord above
    That you're not there to see me
    In this shape I'm in

    Spending my time
    Watching the days go by
    Feeling so small
    I stare at the wall
    Hoping that you think of me too
    I'm spending my time

    I try to call but I don't know what to tell you
    I leave a kiss on your answering machine
    Oh, help me please
    Is there someone who can make me
    Wake up from this dream?

    Spending my time
    Watching the days go by
    Feeling so small
    I stare at the wall
    Hoping that you are missing me too

    I'm spending my time
    Watching the sun go down
    I fall asleep to the sound
    Of "tears of a clown"
    A prayer gone blind

    I'm spending my time

    My friends keep telling me:
    Hey, life will go on
    Time will make sure will get over you

    This was the year i really got into music. I was around 8 or 9 and my parents had bought me a walkman...

    #5 Grease - Soundtrack

    http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/126s/95847877.png

    This soundtrack was re released in Australia this year, and with it the Grease Megamix featuring three of the famous songs from the movie. I got the cassette tape of this soundtrack and used to constantly listen to Sandy.

    #4 Out of Time - R.E.M.

    http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/126s/57909181.png

    This album includes one of the greatest songs ever written in Losing My Religion as well as the fun track Shiny Happy People

    #3 Use Your Illusion I & Use Your Illusion II - Guns N' Roses

    While technically two albums, they were released on the same day, so I'll count them as one... November Rain is probably the most epic song ever written, needless to say more there. …

    The tvs on but the only thing showing
    Is a picture of you.

    Oh I get up and make myself some coffee.
