Wicked (Broadway Musical) – As Long As You’re Mine

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , , , , at 2:24 pm by LynxLee

Recently my wife and I went to watch “Magical Musical” in Sunway Pyramid twice! Read on the story here. This track was simply romantic and beautiful how Stephen Weller and Stevie Tate-Bauer sang it. Perhaps they could release a track, I don’t mind buying it. Love the vocals for sure. =P

The whole atmosphere of a disco ball above in a dark light while this song was sang by them is simply very very nice. Trust me, I wish I could show you the whole moment of the show they performed, but I can’t. So either buy the tickets and go watch it or settle for the ones on YouTube. =P But if you’re interested to buy some tickets; browse here.

If you did a quick YouTube Google (Video) on it, it’s a very very well known Musical piece. Do check out below for more info:

“As Long as You’re Mine” is a musical number from the hit Broadway musical Wicked. It is a duet sung between Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) and her love interest, Fiyero. It was originally sung by Idina Menzel and Norbert Leo Butz, who played Elphaba and Fiyero in the original Broadway cast. Menzel would later on win the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical.
[Reference: Wikipedia]

The featured track below is a scene from Adam Lambert’s performance and some others (the closest I can find on YouTube).
If you’re looking for the most original scene, look for the last one of Idina Menzel and Norbert Leo Butz.

FIYERO:
Maybe I’m brainless
Maybe I’m wise
But you’ve got me seeing
Through different eyes
Somehow I’ve fallen
Under your spell
And somehow I’m feeling
It’s “up” that I fell

BOTH:
Every moment
As long as you’re mine
I’ll wake up my body
And make up for lost time

FIYERO:
Say there’s no future
For us as a pair

BOTH:
And though I may know
I don’t care!
Just for this moment
As long as you’re mine
Come be how you want to
And see how bright we shine
Borrow the moonlight
Until it is through
And know I’ll be here holding you
As long as you’re mine





ELPHABA:
Kiss me too fiercely
Hold me too tight
I need help believing
You’re with me tonight
My wildest dreamings
Could not foresee
Lying beside you
With you wanting me
And just for this moment
As long as you’re mine
I’ve lost all resistance
And crossed some borderline
And if it turns out
It’s over too fast
I’ll make ev’ry last moment last
As long as you’re mine

FIYERO:
Maybe I’m brainless
Maybe I’m wise
But you’ve got me seeing
Through different eyes
Somehow I’ve fallen
Under your spell
And somehow I’m feeling
It’s “up” that I fell

BOTH:
Every moment
As long as you’re mine
I’ll wake up my body
And make up for lost time

FIYERO:
Say there’s no future
For us as a pair

BOTH:
And though I may know
I don’t care!
Just for this moment
As long as you’re mine
Come be how you want to
And see how bright we shine
Borrow the moonlight
Until it is through
And know I’ll be here holding you
As long as you’re mine

FIYERO:
(spoken) What is it?

ELPHABA:
(spoken) It’s just – for the first time, I feel – (whispers) wicked!

Tinie Tempah ft. Kelly Rowland – Invincible

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 1:45 pm by LynxLee

Tinie Tempah impressed me good with the release of his biggest hit, Tinie Tempah – Written In The Stars ft. Eric Turner. Now I heard his album and this track I’m featuring is probably one of my favorite too. I’ve always been a fan of Kelly Rowland. I think she’s a woman with beautiful attitude and looks.

Having a positive track and lyrics like this, it’s worth repeating. Invincible. It’s a strong feeling. To believe that you’ll never need the healing. Yeah, to know that nothing will put you down. The similar reasons why you won’t show a frown. You fall in love and this is what you’re ready for when it’s through and through.

Yeah aah they said we shouldn’t, Yeah they said we wouldn’t
Aah look where we are, We’ve done what they thought we couldn’t
As bad as the odds were looking, Push yeah, we kept on pushing
And every time I nearly hit the ground, You were my cushion
There’s evidence that proves, That you were heaven sent
‘Cos when I needed rescuin’, You were there at my defence
Girl in you I find a friend, You make me feel alive again
And I feel like the brightest star, ‘Cos you make me shine again

Aah from the wildest water, Yeah to the highest mountains
Aah you and I forever, Even through the driest deserts
You lift me higher than ever, I feel as light as a feather
And when we’re fightin’ together, We can take on the weather
I will keep you waterproof, Every single storm you
Ever have to walk through, I will go before you
I will be the voice when you, Need someone to talk to
Please don’t ever doubt me, Let me reassure you

No matter where we are (yea), No matter just how far are paths may lead
We don’t need no shields, Love is the armour that we need
We’re invincible (we are), Invincible (you are)
Invincible, Loves our protector
Invincible (we are), Invincible (you are)
Invincible, We’re invincible

[Intro]
Tinie Tempah, Yeah aah lets go

[Kelly Rowland]
Invincible, invincible
Invincible, invincible
We’re invincible

[Tinie Tempah – Verse 1]
Yeah aah they said we shouldn’t, Yeah they said we wouldn’t
Aah look where we are, We’ve done what they thought we couldn’t
As bad as the odds were looking, Push yeah, we kept on pushing
And every time I nearly hit the ground, You were my cushion
There’s evidence that proves, That you were heaven sent
‘Cos when I needed rescuin’, You were there at my defence
Girl in you I find a friend, You make me feel alive again
And I feel like the brightest star, ‘Cos you make me shine again

[Kelly Rowland – Chorus]
No matter where we are (yea), No matter just how far are paths may lead
We don’t need no shields, Love is the armour that we need
We’re invincible (we are), Invincible (you are)
Invincible, Loves our protector
Invincible (we are), Invincible (you are)
Invincible, We’re invincible

[Tinie Tempah – Verse 2]
Aah from the wildest water, Yeah to the highest mountains
Aah you and I forever, Even through the driest deserts
You lift me higher than ever, I feel as light as a feather
And when we’re fightin’ together, We can take on the weather
I will keep you waterproof, Every single storm you
Ever have to walk through, I will go before you
I will be the voice when you, Need someone to talk to
Please don’t ever doubt me, Let me reassure you

[Chorus]

[Tinie Tempah]
It’s you and I against the world
They can’t stop us now
We’ve come too far
We’ve worked too hard
We’re invincible

[Chorus]
No matter where we are, No matter just how far are paths may lead
We’re invincible (no matter where we are)
No matter just how far are paths may lead
We don’t need no shields, Love is the armour that we need
We’re invincible (we are), Invincible (we are)
Invincible, Loves our protector (woo)
Invincible (we are), Invincible (we are)
Invincible, We’re invincible (we’re invincible)

Nicki Minaj ft. Drake – Moment 4 Life

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 11:20 am by LynxLee

Sometimes you reach a moment where everything is in place. You’re feeling the total opposite of “dead” and it’s simply amazing. This track says it all about how it feels to be alive and wanting it to stay that way always. Nicki Minaj sings well and raps well. Drake puts up the coolest lyrics. What a combination.

I’ve been blessed throughout my life and I’m not gonna hide it. I’ve been through hardship, but I’ve always been lucky. Today and Tomorrow will be no different. If you feel down and you’re wondering what would make things better, start picking up your earphones and listen to some of these track. You’ll feel much more alive.

I wish that I could have this moment 4 life, 4 life, 4 life
Cause In this moment, i just feel so alive, alive, alive
I wish that I could have this moment 4 life, 4 life, 4 life ( I could have this moment x3)
This is my moment, I just feel so alive ( I could have this moment x3)

I’m really tryna make it more than what it is, cause everybody dies but not everybody lives, Ahhh


(Clean Version)


(MTV Version)

[Nicki Minaj]

I fly with the stars in the skies
I am no longer trying to survive
I believe that life is a prize
But to live doesn’t mean you’re alive

Don’t worry about me & who I fire
I get what I desire
It’s my empire
And yes, I call the shots, I am the umpire
I sprinkle holy water upon the vampire

In this very moment I’m king
In this very moment I slayed Goliath with a sling
This very moment I bring
put it on everything, that I will retire with the ring
and I will retire with the crown, Yes
no I’m not lucky I’m blessed, Yes
clap for the heavyweight champ, Me
but I couldn’t do it all alone, We
Young Money raised me, grew up out in Baisley
Southside Jamaica, Queens and it’s crazy
cuz I’m still hood, Hollywood couldn’t change me
shout out to my haters, sorry that you couldn’t faze me
Aint being cocky, we just vindicated
Best believe that when we done this moment will be syndicated
I don’t know,
this night just remind me of
Everything they deprived me of
P-p-p-p-put your drinks up
It’s a celebration every time we link up
We done did everything they could think of
Gr-Gr-Greatness is what we on the brink of

[Chorus]
I wish that I could have this moment 4 life, 4 life, 4 life
Cause In this moment, i just feel so alive, alive, alive
I wish that I could have this moment 4 life, 4 life, 4 life ( I could have this moment x3)
This is my moment, I just feel so alive ( I could have this moment x3)

[Drake]

Yeah
Yeah
Yeah, ugh
What I tell em hoes bow bow bow to me, drop down to ya knees
Young Money the Mafia that’s word to Lil Cease
I’m in The Dominican Big Papi Ortiz
Doin’ target practice all these bitches just aiming to please
Shoutout to the CEO 500 degrees
Shoutout to the OVO, Red Wings and fatigues, oooow
Niggas wanna be friends how coincidental
This supposed to be y’all year we ain’t get the memo
A young King, pay me in gold
Forty got a bunch of weed he ain’t even rolled
These niggas be droppin songs they ain’t even cold
Weezy on top and that nigga aint even home, yet!
Yeah, be very afraid these other rappers getting bodied and carried away
Fuck it me and Nicki Nicki gettin’ married today
And now you bitches that be hatin can catch a bouquet, ooooh
Yeah, you a star in my eyes, you and all them white girls party of five
Are we drinking a lil more I can hardly decide
I can’t believe we really made it I’m partly surprised, I swear
Damn, this one for the books, man!
I swear this shit is as fun as it looks, man!
I’m really tryna make it more than what it is, cause everybody dies but not everybody lives, Ahhh

[Chorus]

This is my moment
I waited all my
Life, I can tell it’s time
Drifting away I’m
One with the sunset
I have become alive
I wish that I could have this moment 4 life, 4 life, 4 life
Cause In this moment, i just feel so alive, alive, alive
I wish that I could have this moment 4 life, 4 life, 4 life ( I could have this moment x3)
This is my moment, I just feel so alive ( I could have this moment x3)
Aliveeeeeee .

Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull – On the Floor

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 5:50 pm by LynxLee

Pitbull’s rap is such an ultimate power while Jennifer Lopez delivers that sexy commanding voice.
Though there are many haters commenting in YouTube on how Jennifer Lopez stole a song, I’d say that she made a new original from a nice “latin” song.

You probably hear this tune from 1982’s “Llorando se fue” by Los Kjarkas and then the mega hit chart topper, “Lambada” by Kaoma in 1989.
Surely you love the song, but you can’t deny this track is one anthem for a good time on the dance floor.

Dance the night away Live your life,
and stay young on the floor

Dance the night away
Grab somebody drink a little more
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala

Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala

Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor

It’s a new generation
Of party people

Darling get on the floor
Darling get on the floor

Let me introduce you to my party people
In the club…

[Pitbull]
I’m loose
And everybody knows I get off the train
Baby it’s the truth
I’m like inception I play with your brain
So I don’t sleep I snooze
I don’t play no games so don’t get it confused no
Cos you will lose yeah
Now pump it up
And back it up like a Tonka truck

[Jennifer Lopez]
If you go hard you gotta get on the floor
If you’re a party freak then step on the floor
If your an animal then tear up the floor
Break a sweat on the floor
Yeah we work on the floor
Don’t stop keep it moving
Put your drinks up
Pick your body up and drop it on the floor
Let the rhythm change your world on the floor
You know we’re running sh*t tonight on the floor
Brazil Morocco
London to Ibiza
Straight to LA, New York
Vegas to Africa

[Chorus]
Dance the night away
Live your life ,and stay young on the floor
Dance the night away
Grab somebody drink a little more
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor
Jennifer Lopez On The Floor lyrics found on http://www.directlyrics.com/jennifer-lopez-on-the-floor-lyrics.html

Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor

[Verse 2]
I know you got it clap your hands on the floor
And keep on rockin’, rock it up on the floor
If you’re a criminal kill it on the floor
Steal it quick on the floor, on the floor
Don’t stop keep it moving
Put your drinks up
Its getting ill it’s getting sick on the floor
We never quit, we never rest on the floor
If I ain’t wrong we’ll probably die on the floor
Brazil Morocco
London to Ibiza
Straight to LA, New York
Vegas to Africa

[Chorus]
Dance the night away
Live your life, and stay young on the floor
Dance the night way
Grab somebody drink a little more
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor

[Pibull]
That badonka donk is like a trunk full of bass on an old school Chevy
All I need is some vodka and some… coke
And watch… get donkey konged
… if you’re ready for things to get heavy
I get on the floor and act a fool if you let me
Don’t believe me just vet me
My name ain’t Keath but I see why you Sweat me
L.A. Miami New York
Say no more get on the floor

Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor

Lisa Miskovsky – Still Alive

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 12:34 am by LynxLee

Tonight I’ve been checking out some Parkour, or FreeRunning online.

Those are exactly the kind of things I wanted to do when I was young; always dropping off higher grounds, climbing trees, running and jumping off things, floating fast from running too fast and so on.

Believe it or not, I used to always run back home from my school bus running and not stopping for breath jumping over things, flipping my feet on platforms to have a higher bounce and so on. Of course, I’m not as extreme to run on rooftops and so on.

Update: On a side note, is it me; or does the first 10 seconds of this song sounded like Westlife’s Us Against The World?

This video I found off YouTube has entertained me greatly and I encourage you to have a good look. It looks like fun, and very artistic:
TEMPEST FREERUNNING ACADEMY – GYM VIDEO

Anyhow, I’m just installing some linux distros on my laptop and reading some system admin and perl, python programming when I decided all of a sudden to Google out Parkour. (I’m still very much entertained by Casino Royale’s 10 minute opening) Then some videos lead me to “Mirror’s Edge”, a game with Parkour in the gameplay for Xbox and so on. Then I saw this video.. Mirror’s Edge Theme Song – Still Alive(Music Video). It lead me to this track and music video here hosted by EA in YouTube. More on the Swedish Musician, Lisa Miskovsky.

This track is somewhat like the Cranberries and Leona Lewis combined. Simply loved it!

It’s been roughly 10 days since my wedding and I’m now looking forward to almost everything! Can’t feel more complete than to know everything is on track and anything is possible. =D

Quoting this song’s lyrics, ” I’m still alive, I’m still alive, I can’t apologize, no..”

Gotta love life you chose and you made. Keep making them and keep chasing them.

So silent
No violence
But inside my head
So loud and clear

You’re screaming
You’re screaming
Cover up with a smile I’ve learned to fear

Just sunshine
And blue sky
Is this all we get
For living here

Come fire
Come fire
Let it burn and love come racing through

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no

I have changed
I have changed
Just like you
Just like youFor how long
For how long
Must I wait
I know there’s something wrongYour concrete heart isn’t beating
And you tried to
Make it come aliveNo shadows
Just red lights
Now I’m here to rescue you

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no

So silent
No violence
But inside my head
So loud and clear

You’re screaming
You’re screaming
Cover up with a smile I’ve learned to fear

Just sunshine
And blue sky
Is this all we get
For living here

Come fire
Come fire
Let it burn and love come racing through

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no

I’ve learnt to lose
I’ve learnt to win
I turn my face against the wind

I will move fast
I will move slow
Take me where I have to go

Oh I’m still alive
I’m still alive
I can’t apologize no
