Delapan Kasih, Delapan Kisah, Bahagian Ketiga

AhMay and AhWongKor have been waving some songs about, so I thought I might get in on the act while doing my Delapan Kasih, Delapan Kisah long meme....

Eight songs

From A Distance. The last line is the best: ‘God is watching us / From a distance….’

Any number of Richard Clayderman’s piano pieces. DYK (ekskius ar, angel) I used to play the piano? Clayderman’s music was astonishingly easy to play and I even managed the correct notes some of the time. One day, I’ll go back to playing the piano. I need to practice more.

Suddenly. ‘Suddenly / Life has new meaning to me / There’s beauty up above / And things we never take notice of /You wake up and suddenly / You’re in love.’ Which is exactly right.

She’s Always A Woman To Me. Doesn’t describe me, but bites very close to the bone for quite a few people I know. Shameless, aitelyu!

I’m All Out Of Love. A wait-take-me-back song, the best of its kind.


I Believe In Love. Actually two songs. One by James Ingram and Sally Yeh, the other by a Filipino artist whose name escapes me. (stage whisper) I like the Filipino one better…. I mean, just listen to the lines:
I believe in love / I believe in you / I believe in everything / The two of us can do…. O.O!!
The US/HK one is just as funny:
I can look at you / And see right through / You’re a part of me / You live inside me…. O.O!!11oneoneone

Do That To Me One More Time. Two songs again, but not exactly.
Do that to me once again / I can never get enough from a man like you….
And there’s the Lionel Ritchie one:
Do that to me one more time / I’ll give you one more chance, this heart of mine / Do it to me one more time baby / Can’t get enough of your love….

How about your eight songs?

I like the song "do that to me one more time", though there's no any special memory... :)

wah u very kan...
one meme u take 2 weeks to complete.
but quite interesting oso la, as in u break it down to a few sotongs then slowly explainnnn....

i wish i could play piano but my fingers are sotong so they can play piano. they can only type on keyboard. like now >_<

At 2:29 pm, Blogger plink said...

may: Nice songs. Yalah, why all the 'you's? *pengsan also*

selba: It is a very nice song. Relaxing, almost. The reassurance, 'Can't get enough of your love,' is also... umm.... special though, as you say, 'no special memory.' ;)

winn: I tried to do it all in one, but headache lar.... And if it was a headache to write, it would have been worse to read. Sotongs nicer if you eat them a little bit at a time hor? Otherwise a bit jelak....
My fingers also sotongliu oredi: dunno how many years never play piano....

I enjoyed this post a lot! :-) Dunno why.. Maybe I sense something deeper reflected by the choice of songs.

My melancholic Lapan today:
Rainy Night in Georgia (Conway Twitty)
Moody Girl (Frank Stallone)
Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me (Gladys Knight & The Pips)
The Look of Love (Burt Bacharach)
At Seventeen (Janis Ian)
Everybody's Got to Learn Sometimes (The Korgis)
Everytime You Go Away (Hall & Oates version)
Love Hurts (Jon B featuring Babyface)

So multilple meme-gasms for you. I like how you are spreading this meme out. Very delightful hor.

And you taking me back to High School. I have to check you and May May's ID. No way you girls can be under 40 and no these songs. wakakakakaka.

I'm All Out of Love really takes me back to my second tour of Germany. Air Supply really could do excellent lamm songs. Oh the memories. *batts eye lashes and stares out the imaginary window*

At 2:35 am, Blogger plink said...

angel: Wah, 888 favourite songs ar? Waiting.. waiting!
LB: I think SA may want to check your ID out too! The Look Of Love and Everytime You Go Away are nice too....
SA: *hand on heart* Honestly, I can say I am under 40. I think here in Malaysia, we like our old songs very much... or very mush....
*watching SA bat eyelids*
Hopefully, spreading it out might be easier when you read it. It certainly has been easier doing it this way than all in one go: the other parts still need writing.... *sshhh*
Glad you like it.... :)

Sorry, plink-y for the loooong comment!! Always great whenever I take a walk down memory lane. (I really should write about my favourite songs in my blog..but I malas..so I pinjam yours for a while! kam sia ah!)

Perpetually on my playlist:
True - Spandau (I especially love the starting of the song...it ranks up there with Last Christmas and How Deep Is Your Love in terms of recognisability.. brings back instant memories..)
Shang Hen (track #16) - Sandy Lam (thank you to AhWongKor for introducing this song to me...so got feel, this song)

Currently on my playlist:
1.You Make Me Feel Brand New - Simply Red (prefer this newer version - God bless you / You make me feel brand new)
2.Never Too Far - Mariah (love her soaring vocals on lush ballads)
3.You Are Everything - Marvin Gaye & Diana Ross (I also like Ain't No Mountain, esp after watching 'Stepmom')
4.How Deep Is Your Love - Bee Gees
5.Your Heart Will Lead You Home -Kenny Loggins
6.What A Fool Believes - Doobie Brothers
7.Luxurious - Gwen Stefani (always feel soooo sexay while listening to this one..try swaying this one with someone..I guarantee you will end up in a very happy place...)
8.Gemilang - Jac (such an uplifting song)

All time favourite song, but cannot find mp3 version (bawls!!! can the plink-y find it on CD anywhere??):
Same Moon - Maureen McGovern (mrkat introduced this song to me during dating days when he had to leave to work in UK for a while..)
But the same moon shines upon you
Though you're half a world away
And the same stars gleam above you
Make a wish...what will you say?
The same earth turns beneath you
And the same sun lights your way
And the same dream lives inside us
We'll be together someday

I also very long never play piano already...maybe if we get one for my girl, I'll pick it up again!! Perhaps one of those electronic ones which has a baby grand sound??

Thank you for the space, plink-y and the memories...
