Michael Moon walking Jackson

Yes me too was shocked by this news. I was travelling between Copenhagen and Helsinki. I noticed Danish newspaper and Finnish newspaper with full page MJ fans thought yet another controversy. It was ofcourse very surprising and shocking to know he is no more.

Well like million others me too is fan of MJ’s music & performances and he was my start to western music. Over the years my music interest has grown length and breadth with difference genre artists before and after his generations but he started it all. Late 80s early 90s he was reason most of us listen to English songs. I never used to buy cassettes, will always record songs. Thriller and Bad are first two English music cassettes I bought. Awesome music and his dance moves. Surely he had his share of controversies and I thought it’s because of his childhood and shared sympathy for him. One of his interview, he said his most autobiographical song is childhood.

Ofcourse most of his music and dance is nothing less than brilliant and while everybody has their famous favorites mine favorite is not so famous Librarian Girl.

and Girl is Mine

Man in the Mirror

Surely end of one of the greatest performer, entertainer.

Borrowed Heaven

All beauty all fade away, borrowed
All moonlight, return today, borrowed
All sunrise all shooting stars, borrowed
All earth bound bare feet in day
you know we’re standing on

Borrowed borrowed heaven
Borrowed borrowed heaven

All heartache all rivers cried, borrowed
Don’t stay out too late tonight, borrowed
I love you don’t wanna die, borrowed
You taste like paradise, I know I’m breathing in

Borrowed borrowed heaven
Borrowed borrowed heaven
Borrowed borrowed heaven
Borrowed borrowed heaven

You gave me life and I will give it back
But before I do, I’m gonna hold it tight
This is my prayer

All body, All skin all bone, borrowed
All silky, all smooth and warm, borrowed
All pleasure, all pain are one, borrowed
Almighty I stand alone
I know I’m living in
Borrowed borrowed heaven

It’s just a thought…

as I face yet another relocation in my life, I was try to describe my current mood and I find this song is very close to my thoughts…

I haven’t really ever found a place that I call home
I never stick around quite long enough to make it
I apologize that once again I’m not in love
But it’s not as if I mind
that your heart ain’t exactly breaking

It’s just a thought, only a thought

But if my life is for rent and I don’t lean to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

I’ve always thought
that I would love to live by the sea
To travel the world alone
and live my life more simply
I have no idea what’s happened to that dream
Cos there’s really nothing left here to stop me

It’s just a thought, only a thought

But if my life is for rent and I don’t learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos nothing I have is truly mine

While my heart is a shield and I won’t let it down
While I am so afraid to fail so I won’t even try
Well how can I say I’m alive

If my life is for rent…

Opera…

Last week, I went to Opera performed by Placido Domingo and Katherine Jenkins at Panathenaic Stadium. It was the venue for the first modern Olympic games in 1896 . It started 30mins late from schedule time and that’s the day fire broke out in Athens due to heatwave. anyways, at 9:30pm with all fire engine noise Opera started.

I must admit this was my first live opera experience and Iam not very much opera person but I loved the experience. It was fab. I have very diverse music interest but I realize that I missed out on Operas. Its fascinating to see someone with such high controlled voice. Ofcourse, I saw few musicals but not concert.

You don’t have to be an opera lover to enjoy the voice of Placido Domingo. I read recently he celebrated 40years in Opera. I can remember him from Live8 concert back in 2005. and Katherine, speechless.. very beautiful and brilliant voice. After their performance of popular operatic duets, she couldn’t resist changing into her shorts and running around the 400-metre track at the Greek capital’s historic stadium. some peaks for staying late for crowd to move, I endup seeing her interest for running as well..;¬)

Its even more fulfilling since the concert was dedicated to the MSF programs for the children victims of violence and malnutrition at the area of Darfur.
