  • bugüne kadar nasıl buraya yazılmadığını anlayamadığım bir temptations başyapıtıdır aynı zamanda...

    dennis: the childhood part of my life
    wasn't very pretty, see...
    temptations: boom, boom-boom, boom
    dennis: i was born and raised
    in the slums of the city,
    temptations: boom, boom-boom, boom
    dennis: it was a one-room shack
    that slept ten other children beside me,
    temptations: boom, boom-boom, boom
    dennis: we hardly enough food
    or room to sleep
    temptations: boom, boom-boom, boom
    dennis: it was hard times...
    i needed somethin' to ease my troubled mind

    dennis: oooh listen...
    my father didn't know the meaning of work
    temptations: boom, boom-boom, boom
    dennis: he disrespected mama,
    and treated us like dirt
    temptations: boom, boom-boom, boom
    dennis: i left home seeking a job
    that i never could find
    temptations: boom, boom-boom, boom
    dennis: the pressure came down hard
    and i took to cloud nine
    temptations: boom, boom-boom, boom

    paul: i'm doing fine
    up here, on cloud nine
    dennis: a one more time
    paul: i'm doing fine
    up here, on cloud nine
    dennis: folks down there tell me...

    dennis: they say give yourself a chance
    and don't let life pass you by,
    temptations: woo, woo, woo
    dennis: but the world, say, is a rat race
    where only the strongest survive,
    it's a dog-eat-dog world
    and that ain't no lie,
    temptations: ain't no lie
    dennis: it ain't even safe no more
    to walk the streets at night

    temptations: i'm doing fine
    on cloud nine

    dennis: let me tell 'bout cloud nine...
    temptations: cloud nine
    paul: you can be what you want to be
    temptations: cloud nine
    dennis: you ain't got no responsibility
    temptations: cloud nine
    eddie: and every man, every man is free
    temptations: cloud nine
    dennis: you're a million miles from reality
    paul: reality

    temptations: i wanna' say up
    eddie and otis: higher
    temptations: up and up,
    up and away

    temptations: cloud nine

    eddie: i wanna' say i love the life i live,
    and i'm going to live, the life i love
    or be on cloud nine...
    i, i, i, i, i, i'm ridin' high
    temptations: on cloud nine

    dennis: you're as free as a burning flame
    temptations: cloud nine
    melvin: there's no difference between day and night
    temptations: cloud nine
    eddie: it's a world of love and harmony
    temptations: cloud nine
    dennis: you're a million miles from reality
    paul: reality

    temptations: i wanna' say up
    eddie and otis: higher
    temptations: up and up, up and away

    temptations: cloud nine
    paul: you can be what you want to be, ah
    temptations: cloud nine
    dennis: you ain't got no responsibility
    temptations: cloud nine
    eddie: every man in his mind is free
    temptations: cloud nine
    dennis: you're a million miles from reality
    temptations: cloud nine
    paul: you can be what you want to be

    temptations: all of them weave in and out with ad libs
    and choruses of "boom-booms"
  • evanescence'in the open door albümünün 5. parçası, sözlerini de yazayım tam olsun :

    if you want to live, let live
    if you want to go, let go
    i'm not afraid to dream - to sleep, sleep forever
    i don't need to touch the sky
    i just want to feel that high
    and you refuse to lift me

    guess it wasn't real after all
    guess it wasn't real all along

    if i fall and all is lost
    its where i belong

    if you want to live, let live
    if you want to go, let go
    i'm never gonna be your sweet, sweet surrender

    guess it wasn't real after all
    guess it wasn't real all along

    if i fall and all is lost
    no light to lead the way
    remember that all alone is where i belong

    in a dream
    will you give your love to me
    beg my broken heart to beat
    save my life
    change my mind

    if i fall and all is lost
    no light to lead the way
    remember that all alone is where i belong
  • evanescence'ın bol ouuu ooouuu lu perili hayaletli ev ortamı verdirmeye çalıştıkları güzel şarkı. sweet sacrifice'daki hızlı hızlı kelime geçişlerinin tersine, bu şarkıda bol bol kelimeler birer birer en sevilen tatlı yermişçesine uzatılarak söylenmiştir. aferim hep böyle güzel müzik yapın.
  • "i don't need to touch the sky.
    i just want to feel that high,
    and you refuse to lift me."

    acıklı bir tek taraflılığı anlatır, istediğim sadece bu hissi* yaşamaktı, sen bir araçtın beni o hisse taşıyacak..dercesine..ama araçsız da olmaz ki..der..hiç olmazsa..rüyama gel, gerçeği artık olmayan beni rüyalarımda yaşat. . .
    neden böyle manalı bir şarkıya bu kadar tempolu rock bir müzik seçilmiştir, merak ettirir çok.
  • george harrison da bu cloud nine furyasına katılmıştır. sözlerini yazayım da yarım kalmasın:

    have my love
    it fits you like a glove
    join my dream, tell me yes
    bail out should there be a mess
    the pieces you don't need are mine

    take my time
    i'll show you cloud nine
    take my smile and my heart
    they were yours from the start
    the pieces to omit are mine

    have my love
    use it while it does you good
    share my highs but the times that he hurts pay no mind
    this pieces you don't need are mine
    i'll see you there on cloud nine

    take my hope
    maybe even share a joke
    if there's good to be shown
    you may make it all your own
    but if you want to quit that's fine
    while you're out looking for cloud nine
  • battlestar galactica'da yer alan bir uzay gemisi.
  • argoda crack anlamına gelir. iron maiden'in from here to eternity şarkısında da geçer.

    she must be having one of her
    crazy dreams
    she'd never sat on a piece so mean
    it made her feel like she's on cloud nine
    she even thought she heard the
    engine sigh

  • taiji sawada'nın çaldığı gruplardan bir diğeri.
  • norman whitfield yapımı olan ghetto'da yetişen bir çocuğun kokainle tanışmasını anlatmaktadır. fakat işin ilginci ne the temptations üyeleri ne de rahmetli whitfield şarkının uyuşturucu ile olduğunu kabul etmiştir. ingilizce "on cloud nine" deyimi "sevinçten havalara uçmak" anlamına gelmektedir, ama şu şözlerden başka ne anlaşılır bilmiyorum.

    işte o sözler;

    you can be who you want to be (olmak istediğin kişi olabilirsin)
    you ain't got no responsibility (hiçbir sorumluluğun yoktur)
    every, every man is free (herkes, her insan özgürdür)
    you're million miles away from reality (ve gerçekler milyonlarca mil uzaktadır)
    on cloud nine*

    * işte zurnanın zırt dediği yer. buraya "kafa güzelken", "papik devredeyken", "beyaz havadayken" mi eklesek daha uygun olur, yoksa "sevinçten uçarken" mi? biz aldık mesajı. yalnız çok fena özendirmişler.

    marvin gaye'in norman whitfield şarkılarını yorumladığı that's the way love is adlı albümde bu şarkının da bir yorumu bulunmaktadır. ben zaten o versiyonunu tercih etmekteyim.
  • vancouver'in en yuksek binasi empire landmark hotel'in en ust katinda bulunan donen bar/restoranin ismi. vancouver downtown'in gobeginde olmasindan oturu eger bir iki icecek ya da yemek icin cikarsaniz donuslerde cypress mountain, grouse mountain, lions gate bridge, robson street, false creek, bc place, ubc yarimadasi, english bay binalari ve sonsuz okyanus manzarasi sizi bekliyor demektir.

    en guzeli aksamustu gunes batarken cikmak, tum manzarayi hatmedip gunesi orda batirmak, sonrasinda da downtown'in isiklariyla basbasa kalmaktir.

    ayrica pek bi guzelinden evanescence sarkisi. muzigine ayri bayiliyorum.
