it's not the single version

HAVE YOU NOTICED?

In Aria: “Stay close to me” in its single version we have one text:

I hear a voice crying far away
Have you been abandoned as well?
Come now, let’s empty this glass of wine soon
I’ll start getting ready
Now be silent.

With a sword I wish I could cut
Those throats singing about love
I wish I could seal in the cold the hands
That portray those verses of burning passion

This story that makes no sense
Will vanish tonight along with the stars

If I could see you
From hope
Eternity will be born

Stay close to me
Don’t go
I’m afraid of losing you

Your hands, your legs
My hands, my legs
The heartbeats
Are fusing together

Let’s leave together
Now I’m ready

But in its Duet version, text is a bit different:

I hear a voice crying far away
Have you been abandoned as well?
Come now, let’s empty this glass of wine soon
I’ll start getting ready
Now be silent.

(the missing piece of text)

Stay close to me
Don’t go
I’m afraid of losing you

Your hands, your legs
My hands, my legs
The heartbeats
Are fusing together

Let’s leave together
Now I’m ready

SEE? The piece of suffering in this aria is missed in the duet version, because they are happy together. And it’s not needed to suffer more.

i am done.

Just thoughts.

dino being a dork on national television(・∀・)

I have been obsessed with Spending all my time for probably 5 years or more now. The PV absolutely knocked me flat and the song itself is one of my all-time favorites. Even the instrumental is amazing. It’s just such an incredibly well-crafted song in all respects; even its repetition and simplicity benefit it somehow. (BUT I much prefer the single version to the LEVEL3 album mix. The original chorus is the most brilliant part of the whole song and the album mix doesn’t live up to it!)

I’m currently waiting for an episode where this happens. I’d be so happy if it did :D

@thehumanmanifestationofsnark replied to your post: (( I don’t think I’m that good at Kanaya anymore…

(I, at least personally as someone who adores Kanaya, think yours is pretty great. Its not the single most cannonical version but she doesnt need to be. You bring out the best of her more humorous and anxious side. Your kanaya potryal has a more prominent focus on her funny and sweet and dorky side, which is valuable.

(( thanks i guess

On this day in music history: July 29, 1967 - “Light My Fire” by The Doors hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks. Written by Robby Krieger, John Densmore, Ray Manzarek and Jim Morrison, it is the biggest hit for the L.A. based rock band. Composed mainly by guitarist Robby Krieger, it is credited to the entire band when he brings the unfinished song into the studio (in August of 1966 at Sunset Sound Recorders in Hollywood, CA), for the other band members to expand upon. The nearly seven minute long track is edited down to under three minutes for single release when it receives heavy airplay as an LP cut. The edited mono single version also presents the song at its originally recorded speed. The more commonly heard stereo LP version was mixed at a slightly slower speed due to an error made during the mixing process. Released as the second single from the bands self-titled debut album in May of 1967, it quickly becomes a radio staple. Entering the Hot 100 at #93 on June 3, 1967, it reaches the top of the chart eight weeks later. Shortly after The Doors top the chart, they are invited to perform their number one hit on The Ed Sullivan Show on September 17, 1967. The censors at CBS ask the band to change the lyric “girl we couldn’t get much higher”, to “girl, we couldn’t get much better”, feeling that the original lyric is a drug reference. Jim Morrison initially agrees, then sings the original line anyway during the live broadcast. The move infuriates host Ed Sullivan, leading him to permanently banning The Doors from the top rated variety show. Only a year after the original version “Light My Fire” tops the chart, it becomes a major hit again, when it is covered by musician Jose Feliciano. His version peaks at #3 on the Hot 100 in August of 1968. The song is recorded numerous times over the years by several artists including Shirley Bassey, The Four Tops, Johnny Mathis, Nancy Sinatra, Stanley Turrentine, Al Green, Minnie Riperton, and Amii Stewart to name a few. The jazz/R&B duo Young-Holt Unlimited (“Soulful Strut”) record an instrumental version in 1969, which is widely sampled in later years, most notably as the basis of Above The Law’s hit “Untouchable” in 1990. “Light My Fire” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA, and is inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 1998.
