Coldplay – Viva la Vida

25 May 2008

I am very busy lately and don’t have a chance to update my blog regularly like before. Anyway, I just heard the new song from the British band Coldplay called Viva la Vida featuring in the new Apple iTune TV commercial. In fact, the commercial was first aired in the U.S. on May 20, 2008 during the American Idol season 7 final. The ad is great and the music is just wonderful. You may watch the clip of the ad from the link below.

The song could be download exclusively at iTune music store. The forth studio album of Coldplay entitled Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends which contains this track will be released on June 12, 2008 in the U.K. and on June 17, 2008 in the U.S.

Here is the lyrics of the song.

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
Listened as the crowd would sing
Now the old king is dead long live the king
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can’t explain
Once you’d gone there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

It was a wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn’t believe what I’d become
Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can’t explain
I know St Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

Hear Jerusalem bells a-ringing
Roman cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can’t explain
I know St Peter won’t call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world


Touch My Body is Mariah’s 18th No. 1 Single on Billborad Chart

2 April 2008

Mariah Carey has made a history with her latest single Touch My Body to top the Billboard Hot 100 Single Chart for the week of April 12th, 2008. It would be Mariah 18th No. 1 Single of her career, surpassing the record of Elvis Presley (17 No. 1 Singles) and having a potential to break The Beatles’ all-time record of 20 No. 1 singles as Mariah is the only active and potential artist to do so.

Congratulations to Mariah! I just can’t wait for the full album E=MC² to be released in April 15th, 2008.

Pid Term Yai Hua Jai Wawoon – Official Music Video

26 February 2008

 

This is the music video of a Thai song called “Yang Noi” (literally translated as “At Least”) by Big Ass, a popular Thai rock band. The song is officially featured in the upcoming Thai teen-romantic-comedy flick “Pid Term Yai Hua Jai Wawoon.” An unconfirmed official international title of the movie is “Hormones,” which implies the unusually high chemical substances in teenagers that cause so many restless activities, especially the feeling of “love.” The film will be released in Thailand on March 20th, 2008. I wish I were in Thailand for the press preview of the film earlier next month. Unfortunately, it is not possible for me. I guess I will have to wait for the film to be released in DVD in the near future.

Even though there was a change in the front page of the official website of the film, there is no new content. I guess you have to keep checking back for more updates next month.

Touch My Body

Performed by Mariah Carey

I know that you been waiting for it, I’m waiting too
In my imagination I be all up on you
I know you got that fever for me, 102
And boy I know I feel the same my temperature’s through the roof

If there’s a camera up in here, then it’s gon’ leave with me when I do
If there’s a camera up in here, then I best not catch this flick on Youtube.
Cause if you run your mouth and brag about this secret rendezvous
I will hunt you down
Cause baby I’m up in my business like a Wendy interview
But this is private, ‘tween you and I

Touch my body, put me on the floor, hustle me around, play with me some more
Touch my body, throw me on the bed, I just wanna make you feel like you never did
Touch my body, let me rub your thighs, all around your waist, just a little taste
Touch my body, know you love my curves, come on and give me what I deserve
And touch my body

Boy you can book me on you like a brand new ID
I’ll hug your body tighter than my favorite jeans
I want you to caress me like a tropical breeze
And float away with you in my Caribbean Scene

If there’s a camera up in here, then it’s gon’ leave with me when I do
If there’s a camera up in here, then I best not catch this flick on Youtube.
Cause if you run your mouth and brag about this secret rendezvous
I will hunt you down
Cause baby I’m up in my business like a Wendy interview
But this is private, ‘tween you and I

Touch my body, put me on the floor, hustle me around, play with me some more
Touch my body, throw me on the bed, I just wanna make you feel like you never did
Touch my body, let me rub your thighs, all around your waist, just a little taste
Touch my body, know you love my curves, come on and give me what I deserve
And touch my body

L’mma treat you like a teddy bear
You won’t wanna go nowhere
In the lap of luxury
Baby just turn to me
You won’t want for nothing boy
I will give you plenty
Touch my body

No, it’s not the popular mass-energy equivalence formula E=mc² by Albert Einstien. But E=MC² is the name of new album by one of the successful female artists of the millennium – Mariah Carey.

It’s been almost two years since Mariah Carey released her studio album, The Emancipation of Mimi, which generated numerous milestones of her career, including three Grammy awards, two Billboard number 1 singles and much more. Now the wait for new album is over as Mariah’s official website confirmed today that her latest (the 11th) studio album with a catchy name of E=MC² will be released in the U.S. on April 15th, 2008 – exactly three years after the release of The Emancipation of Mimi.

The first single from the album “Touch My Body,” written and produced by Mariah Carey, C. “Tricky” Stewart, and The-Dream, is available online at the official website MariahCarey.com.

I just can’t wait for the full album to be released.
