Charity Single for Grenfell Tower Reaches No.1 After Two Hours of Being Released

The charity single titled ‘Bridge over Troubled Water’ featuring various British artists was released yesterday and already became the number 1 single on iTunes just after two hours.

The single is to raise money for those that have been affected by the Grenfell Tower fire where over 70 people have been confirmed dead, another 70 are still missing and over 300 residents have been left without a home.

Simon Cowell organised for Garfunkel’s classic song to be covered by more than 50 well-known artists. Some of the artists featured on the single include; Liam Payne, Stormzy, Emeli Sande, Rita Ora and many more. 

The music video for the single shows many of the residents standing together as a choir and also shows some of the horrific photos of when the tragic fire took place.

Rapper Stormzy opens the song with his moving verse. ‘I refuse to be silenced, I refuse to neglect you’.

‘Bridge over Troubled Water’ is now available to purchase with proceeds going to the victims of Grenfell Tower.

13 is unlucky for some, including Ed Sheeran whose thirteen-week stint at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart has come to an end.

Harry Styles scores his first Number 1 as a solo artist with debut single Sign Of The Times. Taken from his fortchoming self-titled debut album, due for release May 12, Sign Of The Times pipped Ed’s Shape Of You to the top spot by just over 3,000 copies, the track has been downloaded 39,000 times and accumulated 3.5 million streams in the seven days since its release.

LET’S PLAY A GAME: GUESS THE NUMBER OF SEIYUUS

If I’m not mistaken, this is like a radio drama(?) wherein the main guy comes home to find there’s a voice message from his family on the phone, and each family member takes turns giving him a message.

1) Listen to the video. (LISTEN UNTIL THE END. SRSLY.)
2) Guess the number of seiyuus present with Akira Ishida (he’s obvious since he’s the picture lol)
3) HINT: (It doesn’t need to be a 1:1 ratio of characters)
4) ANSWER: See the end of tags. NO SPOILER.

In honor of SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE DAY post here five to ten the best things / facts about any language you can speak ( preferably fluently ) ! If you are more than bilingual choose only 1 of your languages.

Reblog or repost, it’s up to you !

Tagged by: Myself, I made this meme ! :3
Tagging: All of my followers ! Anyone, everyone ! Tagging @maarhun & @littlestmun specifically though, because they are Finnish too :D Fill in the caps I might’ve left !


My language: Finnish ( native, fluent ).

1) I love how free Finnish language is but at the same time really hard to learn if you’re studying it as a foreigner. You can basically cut a word in half ( both writing & speaking ) & it’ll still make the same sense as it would if it was complete. Same thing the order of the words, you can put them in any weird order you want but it’ll still make sense. Finnish is pretty much hard core Yoda speak… In some languages word orders are more or less locked ( subject, verb, object, place, time, manner etc. ) but in Finnish you literally can just throw the words there in any order you want & it’s okay.

2) Literally NO ONE speaks the standard language. NO ONE. Speaking standard language is considered very snobby. I like how people don’t use it. I love the literal “freedom of speech”, referring to number 1 :p

3)  Every single region & city has its own dialect in some way ( referring to number 1 ) & if you live in Finland as a foreigner or immigrant, hoo boy you’re gonna have some real trouble when you go from city to city but even as a native you’re still going to have problems. Once you get used to certain place’s dialect you can might be totally lost in some other. & I’m not talking about words that are kinda the same but still different, no, I am talking about completely & utterly different words you have never heard of that mean the same. Like “bussi” & “dösä”, both mean bus… Or “koti” & “hima”, both mean home. In a country populated by only 5 million people it sometimes baffles me there can be this much language difference all over the country. Hmm. o-o I like the variety though !

4) Let’s not even talk about conjugation of Finnish… You can google it yourselves, the list is so ridiculously long this will take 5-10 scrolls down depending how big your monitor is to read them all.

4) Finnish word “nonii / noniin” can mean dozens of things depending on your tone & how you pronounce it & in which context you use it. I’m not even joking.

5) Word “kahe”is my favourite word but doesn’t mean anything… I also don’t know if literally anyone else uses it except people from Western Ostrobothnia ( small area on the Western coast of Finland ). The best way do describe it is that it means “like” as a filler in sentences, but it still quite isn’t like “like”…

6) Much like German, Finnish too has some ridiculously long words… We’re a heaven for compound words. We pretty squeeze everything relevant to one big fat word ( referring to number 1 — subject, verb, object, place, time, manner etc. )… Or maybe not even that, sometimes ONLY our nouns are this long: “ennakkoäänestyspaikkakunta”, “kuumailmapallolentolahjakortti” or “vuorovarausraivausratkaisupäällikkö”. Yeah… & there aren’t the bullshit “longest Finnish words” you find all over the internet that seriously NO ONE uses. The ones I wrote are seriously words you would use, just not very commonly. They’re very subject & situation specific.

7) SWEARING ! Talking about heaven we are a heaven to swearing too. We swear so much… & some swear words translate hilariously. Here is a massive list of my favourite swears in Finnish.

“Kyrpä otsassa / ohtassa / ottassa” = “dick in your forehead”, which means someone’s having a pouty & angry expression. “Naama norsun vitulla / naama ku norsun vittulla” = “face as an elephant’s twat / face like an elephant’s twat” means the same as “kyrpä ottassa”.
“Vittulan väki” = “the folk of cunt village” which means that in general something sucks. “Vituttaa niinku pientä oravaa, jonka käpy on jäässä” = “As pissed off as a squirrel whose pine cone is frozen.” Self-explanatory :p
“Vitulla päähän” = “cunt to the head” which kinda means the same as extreme face palm.
“Helvetin / helevetin perse” = “Hell’s ass”, means that something’s going seriously wrong.
“Voi hevonvittu” = “Oh the horse cunt”, something goes seriously wrong.
“Voi pyhä persesuti” = “Oh the holy ass brush”. Refers to pubic hair which is considered more or less nasty.
“Ihmispaska / ihmisperse” = “Human shit / ass”. Describes itself well, means that someone is a horrible person.

8) Last but not the least: “Kokko, kokoo koko kokko kokoon” & “Vihdoin vihdoin vihdoin” are legit Finnish sentences. Also, sentence “kuusi palaa” means ( buckle the fuck up folks ):  The spruce is on fire. The spruce returns. The number six is on fire. The number six returns. Six of them are on fire. Six of them return. Your moon is on fire. Your moon returns. & Six pieces.

Listen if Spotify causes my son to lose out on a number 1 debut single I’m going to be pissed!! If Spotify isn’t working for you please go to vevo and stream SOTT there! iTunes users don’t let up either keep in that #1 spot and if he’s not in your country try to get him there. We can do this, I’ll be damn if he doesn’t get a number one single because of a fucking glitch.

And then it happens. Stevie sings the opening line to Dreams… and forgets the words. It is the only Number 1 single in her life - maybe her most important song ever - and she flubs it. She stops - this is TV, remember - and starts over. And then she flubs it again.

“You know what?” Stevie Nicks asks me later. “I wasn’t pissed off at myself, I was scared - the words went out of my head. The first time it was like, OK, this is all right. The second time I started to get a sick feeling. And then the third time I thought, Somebody, Lindsey, come over here and tell me these words, because we’re not gonna get through this thing.”

Those people are out of their minds...LOUIS endured two years of stunting, so HARRY should get a number 1 single out of it? Not Louis? And not just any single, that ONE mysoginistic song glorifying abuse which triggers so many negative feelings and opens old wounds for so many people? That's the song they want people to hear him sing and associate with him? The one that perpetuates his terrible image? Sure Sony & Jeff, go ahead, kill his image off completely, you've almost done it anyway.

Have you met Harry’s drummer Sarah yet????? If not, don’t worry! Jeff will try to distract you with her soon enough.🌸

Nightwish is a symphonic metal band from Kitee, Finland. The band was formed in 1996 by lead songwriter and keyboardistTuomas Holopainen, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and lead singer Tarja Turunen. The band soon picked up drummer Jukka Nevalainen, and then bassist Sami Vänskä after the release of their debut album, Angels Fall First (1997). In 2002, Vänskä was replaced by Marco Hietala, who also took over the male vocalist role previously filled by Holopainen or guest singers.

Although Nightwish have been prominent in their home country since Angels Fall First, they did not achieve worldwide fame until the release of the albums Oceanborn (1998), Wishmaster (2000) and Century Child (2002). Their 2004 album, Once, has sold more than one million copies and was the band’s breakthrough in the United States. Their biggest US hit single, “Wish I Had an Angel” (2004), received MTV airplay and was included on three US film soundtracks to promote their North American tour. The band produced three more singles and two music videos for Once, as well as a re-recording of “Sleeping Sun” for the “best of” compilation album, Highest Hopes (2005), before Turunen’s dismissal in October 2005. Her last performance with Nightwish was during a concert recorded for the live album/DVD End of an Era. After the concert, the other members informed Turunen with an open letter that she was no longer a member of Nightwish.

In May 2007, Nightwish announced Anette Olzon as Turunen’s replacement. That September, the band released their sixth album, Dark Passion Play, which has sold almost 2 million copies. The album’s lead single, “Amaranth”, became one of Nightwish’s most successful in Europe.The supporting tour, one of the band’s largest, started on October 6, 2007 and ended on September 19, 2009. The band released an EP/live album, Made in Hong Kong (And in Various Other Places), in March 2009 as a CD/DVD, and their seventh studio album, Imaginaerum, was released gl obally on various days in late 2011/early 2012.

On October 1, 2012, Nightwish announced that they had parted ways with Olzon and would be finishing the tour with ReVampand former After Forever vocalist Floor Jansen. In October 2013, Nightwish made Jansen and longtime session uillean pipes player Troy Donockley permanent members of the band, and they were featured in the acclaimed album Endless Forms Most Beautiful, released in March, 2015.

Nightwish is the third-best-selling band and musical entity in Finland with certified sales of nearly 900,000 certified copies. The group is also the most successful Finnish band worldwide, selling more than 8 million records and receiving more than 60 gold and platinum awards, having released five Number 1 albums and thirteen Number 1 singles.

Pet Shop Boys with Dusty Springfield

What Have I Done To Deserve This?

@ 1987 UK Pressing 12″ Singles

****

“What Have I Done to Deserve This?” is a song by English synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys, featuring singer Dusty Springfield.

When released as a single in late 1987, it peaked at number 2 in the UK and also at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the fourth top ten hit for Pet Shop Boys as well as the biggest hit of Springfield’s career in the US. It was kept from the top spot by “Seasons Change” by Exposé and “Father Figure” by their fellow British singer George Michael on that chart. The single made it to number 1 on the Irish singles chart, where it was Pet Shop Boys’ second number 1 hit in the space of just six weeks.

The song’s success helped revive Springfield’s career and led to a resurgence of interest in her music. Pet Shop Boys and Dusty Springfield performed the song for the 1988 BRIT Awards. Following the duet the Pet Shop Boys wrote and produced the singles “Nothing Has Been Proved” and “In Private” for Springfield, both included on her 1990 album Reputation.

The music video was filmed in a music hall, featuring a female chorus line and male members of the pit orchestra. It made significant use of the theater drapes and stage curtains for dramatic effect. Like all of the singles taken from the Actually album, the song also appears on the film It Couldn’t Happen Here, where it is briefly played in instrumental form, without vocals.

At the 2009 BRIT Awards where the duo were due to receive an Outstanding Contribution to Music award, Pet Shop Boys performed the song with American singer Lady Gaga.
