Russia is waging a disgraceful war on Ukraine. Stand With Ukraine!

Moody III

Moody collections - several people asked what’s their point - to me, moodiness is a fact of life. My ups and downs can change on one word from someone I care about. I can feel euphoria from finishing a project (so I worked way too much over the years), I could drown in melancholy when I hear or see the injustice, racism, or just plain indifference from people. Sometimes, it’s overwhelming. I created the first collection trying to deal with the waters closing above me making it impossible to breathe. I see these collections as the opal with the songs sparkling inside like stars. These flashing points of light that soothe and make you happy, they are so endlessly different under different lighting...like songs.

I question my sanity in the attempt to continue Moody collections... Here we go, anyway...
“I don't want to go / That way / Surrender hope and faith / Again”

Hi, Z! The song carries a lovely melody, but I’m confused by the sheep - what does it mean?

Zarya MoonwolfZarya Moonwolf    Tue, 19/05/2020 - 02:57

I don't know what that part means sadly

Zarya MoonwolfZarya Moonwolf    Tue, 19/05/2020 - 03:07

It might be like counting sheep to go to sleep or something

Zarya MoonwolfZarya Moonwolf    Tue, 19/05/2020 - 03:09

Oh and I'm assuming you read the lyrics.

WHat do you think of them and with out looking it up what do you think they mean?

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Tue, 19/05/2020 - 11:40

I did read the lyrics more carefully and now I get why I didn’t like it... I know some things are facts of life, but I’m sad for the sheep.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Sat, 13/06/2020 - 17:47

You’re a sweetheart! I can’t believe I forgot the Scorpion song - thanks and I liked your translation.
I’m taking Starlight to another collection. Tyvm.

Waran4ikWaran4ik    Sat, 13/06/2020 - 17:56

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it )

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Sat, 13/06/2020 - 18:06

Is it me or the music in Starlight is very close to Les Misarables?

Waran4ikWaran4ik    Sat, 13/06/2020 - 18:37

Quite! It also resembles music from the musical Cats and The Phantom of the Opera ) This composer is a discovery for me! Quality work! Lucy Thomas also sings super!

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 03/07/2020 - 01:15

I like the lyrics, but music not so much. The words though, lol, perfect
If only I didn't have to go anywhere tomorrow, I would stay home and read a book.

silencedsilenced    Fri, 03/07/2020 - 01:19

Actually I'd be glad for a bit of proofreading on this one. I'm stuck with a bit I really don't understand.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 03/07/2020 - 01:24

I’m quite tired tonight. I’ll help, but I’m sure Irula will get there ahead of me.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 03/07/2020 - 01:13

It’s awfully sad. I draw my line here at heart-wrenching, but death is too close or going too far. 😏
I need to survive the next week and hope for a holiday.
I really liked the song you translated El Rey De Francia. Thanks.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 03/07/2020 - 01:23

I am very glad you like it and I appreciate suggestions and interest because I spend enormous hours searching for songs - mostly, because I have no plan. The other day, Démonia gave me tons of songs - I loved one, but others not at all though I loved the singer’s voice. I happen to like a ton of French and Italian songs, but lately I get turned off once I understand the words. There was a hilarious exchange on one of the songs I liked because MZ, the translator, ruined it for me. 😂
Sweet dreams.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 03/07/2020 - 01:40

I think the voices. 1st one isn’t great lyrics. But they are perfectly moody! 😉

LunkyLunky    Fri, 03/07/2020 - 21:58

I've got no clue what she sings about but I like this track.

LunkyLunky    Mon, 20/07/2020 - 21:41

Personally, I liked it! Nice find, Irina!

IremiaIremia    Mon, 20/07/2020 - 21:49

These guys are quite controversial a**holes, but one can appreciate their music. Very moody.
