#MusicMonday – Diva Dance from the Fifth Element

This is an iconic song. As much as “Anyone else want to negotiate?” Or, “Multi-pass.” Which I still say in exactly Leelu’s tone of voice when it comes up. It is sad because only people about my age or older get the joke, which is hilarious because I am damn funny even if it is the 200th time I have said it during my mawage (oops switching movies), and people under my age don’t seem to be watching this iconic movie. Which is a shame, because it is space opera at it’s finest.

The original singer
The woman singing it in the movie.

The Diva Dance in Italian

  • Il dolce suono mi colpì di sua voce!
  • Ah, quella voce
  • M’è qui nel cor discesa!
  • Edgardo! Io ti son resa.
  • Edgardo!Ah! Edgardo, mio!
  • Si, ti son resa fuggita io son da’ tuoi nemici.
  • Ah nemici!
  • Un gelo mi serpeggia nel sen!
  • Trema ogni fibra!
  • Vacilla il piè!
  • Presso la fonte meco t’assidi alquanto.
  • Si, presso la fonte meco t’assidi.

The Diva Dance in English

  • The sweet sound of his voice has caught me!
  • Oh that voice
  • is down here in my heart!
  • Edgardo! I am yours.
  • Edgardo!Oh my Edgardo!
  • Yes, I am yours, I ran away from your enemies.
  • Oh enemies!
  • A froze is whirling in my breast!
  • Every fibre is trembling!
  • my feet are shaking!
  • I will stick to the source a while
  • Yes, close to the source I’ll be for a while.

#MusicMonday Where Did You Go? by Jets Overhead

This played on House this week while I was watching a rerun. I forgot about this song and how much I loved it. I got a reminder and have been listening to it all week. Hope you enjoy.


Lyrics

Math is running through my head
Wondering if she’s dead
Did she say a quarter past
The hands can’t move too fast
Stop to think and look within
Ordinary sin
Think you must have heard her wrong
‘Cause she wasn’t gone that long

Where did you go?
Oooo, I don’t wanna know

Looking lost into the night
She’s gonna lose this fight
He’ll just say the job ran late
His solitary fate
Stop to drink come wrinkled chin
Ordinary sin
Think you must have heard him wrong
‘cause he wasn’t gone that long

Where did you go?
Oooo, I don’t wanna know

Who’s somebody?
Who’s someone?

#MusicMonday Cake – The Distance

This song rocketh my sockeths

I consider it a personal triumph that this is my kids favorite song and every single time I hear this it makes me feel like a badass. The bass riff on this is unmistakable and it is a seriously cool song to drive to. Enjoy!

Lyrics

Reluctantly crouched at the starting line
Engines pumping and thumping in time
The green light flashes, the flags go up
Churning and burning, they yearn for the cup
They deftly maneuver and muscle for rank
Fuel burning fast on an empty tank
Reckless and wild, they pour through the turns
Their prowess is potent and secretly sternAs they speed through the finish, the flags go down
The fans get up and they get out of town
The arena is empty except for one man
Still driving and striving as fast as he can
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up
And long ago somebody left with the cup
But he’s driving and striving and hugging the turns
And thinking of someone for whom he still burnsHe’s going the distance
He’s going for speed
She’s all alone (all alone)
All alone in her time of needBecause he’s racing and pacing and plotting the course
He’s fighting and biting and riding on his horse
He’s going the distance
No trophy, no flowers, no flashbulbs, no wine
He’s haunted by something he cannot define
Bowel-shaking earthquakes of doubt and remorse
Assail him, impale him with monster-truck force
In his mind, he’s still driving, still making the gradeShe’s hoping in time that her memories will fade
‘Cause he’s racing and pacing and plotting the course
He’s fighting and biting and riding on his horse
The sun has gone down and the moon has come up
And long ago somebody left with the cup
But he’s striving and driving and hugging the turns
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns’Cause he’s going the distance
He’s going for speed
She’s all alone (all alone)
All alone in her time of needBecause he’s racing and pacing and plotting the course
He’s fighting and biting and riding on his horse
He’s racing and pacing and plotting the course
He’s fighting and biting and riding on his horseHe’s going the distance
He’s going for speed
He’s going the distanceAh no, so sad, alright 
Oh no, oh no, no, no

#Musicmonday Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing by Chris Isaak

Chris is the ultimate crooner. So smooth. Normally when talking about Chris Isaak people talk about Wicked Game, which is a gorgeous song. But I am a big fan of this one.


Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing by Chris Isaac

Baby did a bad bad thing 
Baby did a bad bad thing
Baby did a bad bad thing 
Baby did a bad bad thingYou ever love someone so much you thought your little heart was gonna break in two?
I didn’t think so
You ever tried with all your heart and soul to get you lover back to you?
I want to hope so
You ever pray with all your heart and soul just to watch her walk away?Baby did a bad bad thing
Baby did a bad bad thing
Baby did a bad bad thing
Feel like crying
Feel like cryingYou ever toss and turn your lying awake and thinking about the one you love?
I don’t think so
You ever close your eyes your making believe your holding the one your dreaming of?
Well if you say so
I hurts so bad when you finally know just how low, low, low, low, low, she’ll goBaby did a bad bad thing
Baby did a bad bad thing
Baby did a bad bad thing
Feel like crying
I feel like cryingOh feel like crying
Feel like crying
Oh, feel like crying
Feel like crying

#musicmonday Centuries by Fall Out Boy

I feel like I should be a 13 year old girl rocking out to this song, but honestly it is amazing. Fist pumping sing at the top of your lungs amazing.


Centuries by Fall Out Boy

Some legends are told
Some turn to dust or to gold
But you will remember me
Remember me, for centuries
Just one mistake
Is all it will take
We’ll go down in history
Remember me for centuriesRemember me for centuries

Mama, fight my teenage dreams
No, it’s nothing wrong with me
The kids are all wrong the story’s aloof
Heavy metal, rock my heart
Come on, come on and let me in
I’m cruising on your thighs, leave my fingerprints
And this is for tonight
I thought that you would feel
I never meant for you to fix yourself

Remember me for centuries

And I can’t stop till the whole word knows my name
‘Cause I was only born inside my dreams
Until you die for me, as long as there is a light
My shadow is over you ’cause I am the opposite of amnesia
And you’re a cherry blossom
You’re about to bloom
You look so pretty, but you’re gone so soon

He’s been here forever
And he’s the chosen fruit
I could scream forever
We all poisoned you

Some legends are told
Some turn to dust or to gold
But you will remember me
Remember me, for centuries
Just one mistake
Is all it will take
We’ll go down in history
Remember me for centuries

Remember me for centuries
