It don’t matter if you’re by my side

This is one of my go-to songs when I’m down. The melody and lyrics are simple and true; the rhythm jaunty and jig-worthy; the video a joke, in the best possible way: George Harrison has always been my favourite Beatle and I love him here, despite that mullet; also, you gotta laugh at the fact that Tom Petty looks quite handsome next to the others (esp Dylan); and I like Orbison’s guitar in the chair when he sings the third chorus (Orbison had died of a cardiac arrest by the time the video was shot).

Aku tak apa apa

Pagi Yang Gelap

By Hujan

Lebih tua dari ku harap sabar menunggu
Kepulangan mu ku tunggu
Bukan maksud ku mendiam
Tiada niat menyimpan dendam
Hakikat nya rindu yg mendalam

Jalan inikan membantu
Hari esok siapa yg tahu
Kata ibu dengar sahaja
Cerita hanya kita berdua

Pagi yg gelap kini sudah terang
Aku adik mu
Dan engkau abang
Ku amat merindui kan mu
Pagi yg gelap kini sudah terang
Aku adik mu
Dan engkau abang
Ingin ku ulang kemasa dulu

Tak akan putus
Hubungan kita
Tarik nafas lega kerna aku tak apa apa

Jalan inikan membantu
Hari esok siapa yg tahu
Kata ibu dengar sahaja
Cerita hanya kita berdua

Pagi yg gelap kini sudah terang
Aku adik mu
Dan engkau abang
Ku amat merindui kan mu
Pagi yg gelap kini sudah terang
Aku adik mu
Dan engkau abang
Ingin ku ulang ke masa dulu

It’s in the trees! It’s coming!

I’ve been singing Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill in the car a lot lately. The reasons are not a mystery to me, but I don’t feel like going into them right now.

I made a funeral playlist on YouTube a while back and that song is in it. A funeral playlist is not supposed to consist of funereal songs – that is not my interpretation anyway. I chose songs that are significant to me and my life, and there should be many more than just twelve songs, so I will add to it by and by.

The Hounds of Love (Kate Bush’s 1985 album) was released in 1985. I was eighteen and I remember leaping around my room to Running Up the Hill (the first single), and falling in love with The Ninth Wave, the concept piece on Side B.   Continue reading
