Some hills are never seen

Please submit any entry that’s meaningful to you - not just because it contains the keywords.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 02:19

[@lt] I posted 21 entries so far in this collection, but edit shows 3 and adding new entry shows 4. Please look into it.
Last entry was Rihanna’s song that I moved up.
Thanks in advance.

kyucatkyucat    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 02:19

I can see all 21 fine though :O Maybe a bug on your end?

kyucatkyucat    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 02:22

Oh, I misread your message. I hope it gets fixed soon! ^^ And that you feel better soon, as well)

ltlt    Jue, 05/03/2020 - 20:39

[@BlackSea4ever] Is your question still valid? As of now, we see 73 in both edit and view modes.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 16:47

Knew it...
Shine on you crazy diamond...
Come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine!

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 16:53

Nadia! Missed you!
Not in English translation, but in French: Je ne souhaite pas des diment perle
Will you translate it into Russian?

My collections are Usually woefully short of anything not Russian/English.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 17:05

Tried it. Video not working. Plus, I heard this song by William Shatner, of star trek fame, and can’t stand it ever since

vevvevvevvev    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 17:08

Предложение снимается.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 17:13

И вообще, она Вся такая-растакая.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 17:27

Men grow cold as girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 17:55

I know it has the right word, but I don’t understand its use. Song is already at LT.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 18:06

Thanks. I really liked Enya’s song and completely forgot the turquoise!

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 18:40

Lol. Not without the gems. I’m losing it - can’t find some song playing in my head.

kyucatkyucat    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 18:54

Oh no :^( Hope it comes to you soon...I'll try and see if I can find any good gemstone songs after I wake up

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 19:52

Could you fix both entries’ videos - the type there doesn’t show in the collection

Zarina01Zarina01    Dom, 16/02/2020 - 19:58

I can't for pearls because unfortunately that song isn't available on youtube

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Lun, 17/02/2020 - 15:10

#2 became my top entry - many thanks!
#1 video doesn’t work. And although I adore the ´´mother of pearl´´, I really dislike the ‘’music’’ - sorry?

malucamaluca    Lun, 17/02/2020 - 22:02

Strange, here in my country the video works... Maybe a regional thing.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Lun, 17/02/2020 - 15:27

Me love Sting, but it’s about the cards. I’ll take any excuse to listen to Sting. Lol

"I know that diamonds mean money for this art"

vevvevvevvev    Lun, 17/02/2020 - 15:33

Мне нравиться все, что Вы делаете, Диана!

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Lun, 17/02/2020 - 16:14

Ah, here we go...noise. Headache. Can’t tell one word. I say we use lyrics and you play the guitar?

vevvevvevvev    Lun, 17/02/2020 - 16:22

Простите, простите... Я иногда люблю металл послушать...

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Lun, 17/02/2020 - 16:39

I was just was reminded the other day that not everything is about what I like. Can’t say I agree. But, in contrition, I did add Lucy in the Sky (for you and brat), and Amethyst (Nadia). I will add this one if you really do like it, put the link back, please.

vevvevvevvev    Lun, 17/02/2020 - 16:54

Нет, нет, никакой особой симпатии к этой песне у меня нет.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Lun, 17/02/2020 - 18:20

Long ago, my father bought me a gorgeous huge amethyst. An idiot that I am, I left it at a jeweler to design a setting and never picked it up... this reminded it me of yet another failure, but remembrance is there... thank you.

FlopsiFlopsi    Dom, 23/02/2020 - 11:44

This is so sad, but let me tell you - you're not alone - you're just an idiot like me.

Zarina01Zarina01    Vie, 28/02/2020 - 20:52

I'm sorry to hear that ☹ and actually that song was based off of a poem by Emily Dickinson

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Mar, 18/02/2020 - 22:31

Woefully short of sapphires! Lol. Thank you. And sound is very pleasant.

PääsukePääsuke    Mié, 19/02/2020 - 16:06

The first one is called "Blue sapphire".

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Jue, 05/03/2020 - 20:42

[@lt] I know you are quite busy now so this is totally not urgent, but I noticed a bug where song doesn’t show that it was added to a collection - this causes multiple requests to add it when in reality, it was done. No rush. Thanks.

This issue is still here

osiris71osiris71    Jue, 05/03/2020 - 19:15

And what about Modern Talking and Chris Norman? Not good enough for you? "Some Hearts Are Diamonds" is a great ballad, in my opinion. I'm a little disappointed, but it's OK. Your choice.
