La vida es mejor cantando


Sí, lo sé, soy más vaga que un recuerdo y he tomado la costumbre de actualizar cada semana este blog :P O peor aún: ahora han pasado prácticamente dos semanas. Dentro de mi lista de propósitos de Año Nuevo les aseguro que incluí ser más constante en las actualizaciones, pero, por una cosa o por otra, ha sido casi imposible. En esta ocasión, digamos que la "excusa perfecta" fue que me entretuve demasiado contestando una cadena o meme, de esos que tanto pululan por estos mundos blogueros. Lo "mejor" es que fui invitada por partida doble: tanto la señorita Insane como la señorita Ariel, me señalaron con su dedo ponzoñoso, hahaha y heme aquí, que a punto estuve de tirar la toalla porque según había que responder echando mano sólo de un grupo de música o de un artista. Sin embargo, vi otros memes contestados y todos respondían utilizando una gran variedad. ¿Mi problema? algo muy sencillo: traté de ser lo más honesta posible, buscando en mis archivos y carpetas musicales y aún para mi propia sorpresa, mucha de mi música favorita no me servía para responder a cada pregunta. Aún así, estoy satisfecha con las respuestas y espero ansiosa sus comentarios, amables lectores, jejeje.

Por cierto: la Gothic-Biker-Happy Demon Family estará unos días fuera de Valencia City, en una especie de mini-vacaciones ;-)


1.Eres hombre o mujer: The pirate's bride (Sting)

Sometimes in the light at the edge of the world
Is the ghost of a ship with it's black sail furled
And night after night she would stand on the shore
And dream of the love that she knew before

The tide rolls out, the tide rolls in
Without a thought for the ways of men

We set sail for the Spanish Main
To rob the ships of the Queen of Spain
And she would be his pirate's bride
She gave him the pistol and the sword at his side

The tide rolls out, the tide rolls in
Without a care for the ways of men

I'd give three ships of Spanish gold
To see my love again
Full fathom five my true love lies
In a fine wooden casket with gold on his eyes
Where is the glory and where is the pride?
Where is the joy for the pirate's bride?

The tide rolls out, the tide rolls in
Without a care for the ways of men



2.Descríbete: Bitch (Meredith Brooks)

I'm a bitch
I'm a lover
I'm a child
I'm a mother
I'm a sinner
I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell
I'm you dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way



3. Qué sienten las personas acerca de ti: Dark Lady (Cher)

Dark Lady laughed and danced and lit the candles one by one
Danced to her gypsy music till her brew was done
Dark Lady played black magic till the clock struck on the twelve
She told me more about me than I knew myself


4.Cómo te sientes tú misma: Spirit horse of the cherokee (Manowar)

We welcomed them as brothers knowing nothing of their greed
Born hunters not the hunted as the white man hunts for me
We are descendants of the animals we live among the free
Our trail of tears would end one day at wounded knee.

Great spirit, thunder birds fly, we are wild and free
To fight and die by the open sky, spirit horse ride for me


5.Cómo describirías tu anterior relación sentimental: Fire and Ice (Pat Benatar)

Fire and Ice
You come on like a flame
Then you turn a cold shoulder
Fire and Ice
I wanna give you my love
But you'll just take a little piece of my heart
You'll just tear it apart
Movin' in for the kill tonight
You got every advantage when they put out the lights
It's not so pretty when it fades away
Cause it's just an illusion in this passion
I've seen you burn 'em before

. Describe tu relación actual con tu novio o pretendiente: You showed me the way (Billie Holiday)

You showed me the way
When I was someone in distress
A heart in search of happiness
You showed me the way

My sky was so gray
I never knew I'd feel a thrill
I couldn't dream a dream until
You showed me the way

The moment you found me
The shadows around me
Just disappeard from view
The world became rosy
Each corner so cozy
Darling, all because of you

You showed me the way
And if I've learned that love can be a paradise
For you and me
Heres all I can say
You showed me the way



7. Tu sueño más elaborado: Forever Young (Rod Stewart)

May the good lord be with you
Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
Surround you when youre far from home
And may you grow to be proud
Dignified and true
And do unto others
As youd have done to you
Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart youll always stay
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young



8. Dónde quisieras estar ahora: All soul's night (Loreena Mckennit)

Bonfires dot the rolling hills
Figures dance around and around
To drums that pulse out echoes of darkness
Moving to the pagan sound.

Somewhere in a hidden memory
Images float before my eyes
Of fragrant nights of straw and of bonfires
And dancing till the next sunrise.

I can see lights in the distance
Trembling in the dark cloak of night
Candles and lanterns are dancing, dancing
A waltz on All Souls Night.


9. Qué pedirías si tuvieras sólo un deseo: Forever (Macbeth)

Our flames burn in this
ephemeral reality,
like dancing candles closed
in upon a mysterious breeze,
our light will slowly fade
like the blaze of a sunset,
obscured by the rebirth
of the nocturnal majesty.
Stand here beside me
and pity our existence,
we are like weak flowers
trodden by the step of time,
my heart bleeds for you,
my only dear love,
embrace me, you and I
will be as one forever...

Stand here beside me
and pity our suffering,
we are like pure snow
in the hands of the time,
my heart bleeds for you,
my only dear love,
embrace me,
you and Iwill be as one forever...


10.Cómo eres respecto al amor: Passion (Rod Stewart)

There's no passion, there's no passion
There's no passion, I need passion
You need passion, we need passion
Can't live without passion
Won't live without passion
Even the president needs passion
Everybody I know needs some passion
Some people die and kill for passion
Nobody admits they need passion
Some people are scared of passion
Yeah passion



11.Cómo eres respecto a la soledad: Demon (London After Midnight)

Through darkened streets and blackened gloom
the candles dim in your bedroom
rain reflecting shadows in the night
the moon is full and through the mist
I hear your voice I feel your kiss
the line grows thin between what's wrong and right.

Burning flesh, pale as the stars
no one knows just who you are
drive the knife in deeper to my soul
velvet touch your mouth on mine
drunk on lust like drunk on wine
the world will end we'll hear the thunder roll.

Don't even say it
don't even look away
haunted by
haunted by
black winged angel come to me
release my soul from this misery.
In the candle light you'll see
just what all this means to me
the line grows thin between what's wrong and right.


12. Cómo es tu vida: God gave me everything (Mick Jagger)

God gave me everything I want
Come on
I'll give it all to you
I saw it in the midnight sun
And I felt it in the race I won
And I hear it in the windy storm
And I feel it in the icy dawn
And I smell it in the wine I taste
And I see it in my fathers face
And I hear it in a symphony
And I feel it in the love
You show for me
Yeah
God gave me everything I want



13.Una imagen triste: Arms of an angel (Sarah McLachlan)

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There’s vultures and thieves at your back
And the storm keeps on twisting
You keep on building the lie

That you make up for all that you lack
It don’t make no difference
Escaping one last time
It’s easier to believe in this sweet madness oh
This glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort there
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here


14. Una imagen del futuro: Fighting for freedom (Manowar)

There's a sound heard across the land
It's heard across the sea
You'll only hear it if you listen with your hearts
And one day hope to be free
To hear the sound of freedom many gave their lives
They fought for you and me
Those memories will always live in silence
And now it's our time to be free

[Chorus:]
Where the eagles fly - I will soon be there
If you want to - come along with me my friend
Say the words and you'll be free
From the mountains to the sea
We'll fight for freedom again

Scream out loud for all the world to hear
From here to shining sea
Let freedom ring and every man be king
To live as one through the years

[Repeat chorus]

Now is the time we all must stand together
So raise your hands show them we are strong
Side by side the fight goes on forever
Marching to the battle with this song

[Repeat chorus to fade]


15. Escribe una cita o una frase sabia:

[addressing his troops]

Maximus: Patres!

[Cavalry addresses Maximus]

Maximus: Three weeks from now, I will be harvesting my crops. Imagine where you will be, and it will be so. Hold the line! Stay with me! If you find yourself alone, riding in the green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium, and you're already dead!

[Cavalry laughs]

Maximus: Brothers, what we do in life... echoes in eternity.

(Gladiator)
