Day 30: Your favorite song this time last year

Memories.. (:

So give me reason to prove me wrong, to wash this mem0ry clean.
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes.
Give me reason to fill this hole, connect the space between.
Let it be enough tor each the truth that lies across this new divide.

Day 29: A song from your childhood

I remember watching this on television.. I adored the video. And no matter how many times I'v heard it, it is still an amazing song that also reminds me of my childhood.

You will always have somebody here for you. I'm never gonna leave you.

Day 28: A song from a movie you like

Great movie, great song.



I just want to tell you nothing you dont want to hear
All I want is for you to say
Why don't you just take me where I've never been before?
I know you want to hear me
Catch my breath.
I love you 'till the end.

Day 27: A song that you wish you could play on an instrument

Beautiful song.. I really wish I could play it. But I don't play any instrument, so.. (:



So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil? Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.

What have you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Day 26: A song you want to dedicate to

Dedicated to someone. (:


You do something to me, something deep inside
I'm hanging on the wire for a love I'll never find
You do something wonderful then chase it all away
Mixing my emotions that throws me back again
Hanging on the wire, I'm waiting for the change
I'm dancing through the fire, just to catch a flame
an' feel real again

You do something to me somewhere deep inside
I'm hoping to get close to a peace I cannot find

Dancing through the fire just to catch a flame
Just to get close to, just close enough
To tell you that.....

You do something to me something deep inside.

Day 25: A song that makes you laugh

C is for cookie!

Παρασκευή, 24 Ιουνίου 2011

Day 24: A song that you want to play at your funeral

It makes me smile and I think that's how everyone should face up with the death, everyone's death. (: So, I hope you had the time of your life..

Day 23: A song that you want to play at your wedding

If I were to get married some day (as I'm kind of against marriage, for the time being at least), a song I'd like to play is La vie en rose. Clearly you can see why, it's French and I couldn't think of another so romantic and suitable for this occasion song. (:


Des yeux qui font baiser les miens,
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche,
Voila le portrait sans retouche
De l'homme auquel j'appartiens

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas,
Je vois la vie en rose.

Il me dit des mots d'amour,
Des mots de tous les jours,
Et ca me fait quelque chose.

Il est entre dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause.

C'est lui pour moi. Moi pour lui
Dans la vie,
Il me l'a dit, l'a jure pour la vie.

Et des que je l'apercois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

Des nuits d'amour a ne plus en finir
Un grand bonheur qui prend sa place
Des enuis des chagrins, des phases
Heureux, heureux a en mourir.

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas,
Je vois la vie en rose.

Il me dit des mots d'amour,
Des mots de tous les jours,
Et ca me fait quelque chose.

Il est entre dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause.

C'est toi pour moi. Moi pour toi
Dans la vie,
Il me l'a dit, l'a jure pour la vie.

Et des que je l'apercois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

Day 22: A song that you listen to when you are sad

Yeap, and it makes me even more sad. Great.


How I needed you
How I bleed now you're gone
In my dreams I can see you
But I awake so alone

I know you didn't want to leave
Your heart yearned to stay
But the strength I always loved in you
Finally gave way

Somehow I knew you would leave me this way
Somehow I knew you could never stay
And in the early morning light
After a silent peaceful night
You took my heart away

In my dreams I can see you
I can tell you how I feel
In my dreams I can hold you
It feels so real

And I still feel the pain
I still feel your love
I still feel the pain
I still feel your love

Somehow I knew you would leave me this way
Somehow I knew you could never stay
And in the early morning light
After a peaceful night
You took my heart away
I wish you could have stayed

Day 21: A song that you listen to when you're happy

Great huh?

NA NA NA NA NA! LIFE IS LIFE!

Δευτέρα, 20 Ιουνίου 2011

Day 20: A song that you listen to when you're angry

Yes, when I'm angry -typical of me- I always listen to prayer of the refugee. With my headphones in my ears at high volume so as to hear nobody and nothing else. (:




Warm yourself by the fire, son,
And the morning will come soon.
I'll tell you stories of a better time,
In a place that we once knew.
Before we packed our bags
And left all this behind us in the dust,
We had a place that we could call home,
And a life no one could touch.


Don't hold me up now,
I can stand my own ground,
I don't need your help now,
You will let me down, down, down!

We are the angry and the desperate,
The hungry, and the cold,
We are the ones who kept quiet,
And always did what we were told.

But we've been sweating while you slept so calm,
In the safety of your home.
We've been pulling out the nails that hold up
Everything you've known.

Don't hold me up now,
I can stand my own ground,
I don't need your help now,
You will let me down, down, down!


So open your eyes child,
Let's be on our way.
Broken windows and ashes
Are guiding the way.
Keep quiet no longer,
We'll sing through the day,
Of the lives that we've lost,
And the lives we've reclaimed.

Go!

Don't hold me up now,
I can stand my own ground,
I don't need your help now,
You will let me down, down, down!

Day 19: A song from your favorite album

Was it a dream? from the album "A beautiful lie", 30 seconds to Mars.



Your defenses were on high
Your walls built deep inside
Yeah I'm a selfish bastard
But at least I'm not alone
My intentions never change
What I want still stays the same
And I know what I should do
it's time to set myself on fire

Was it a dream? Was it a dream?
Is this the only evidence that proves it
A photograph of you and I

Your reflection I've erased
Like a thousand burned out yesterdays
Believe me when I say goodbye forever is for good

Was it a dream? Was it a dream?
Is this the only evidence that proves it
A photograph of you and I
Was it a dream? Was it a dream?
Is this the only evidence that proves
A photograph of you and I
Was it a dream? Was it a dream?
Is this the only evidence that proves
A photograph of you and I
A photograph of you and I
A photograph of you and I
In love.

Day 18: A song you wish you heard on the radio

It's one of my favorites songs but unfortunately I have never heard it on the radio.





Et maintenant nous sommes tous seuls.
Protège moi.

Παρασκευή, 17 Ιουνίου 2011

Day 17: A song you hear often on the radio

What else?

Written in the stars, million miles away
A message to the main.
Seasons come and go but I will never change
And I'm on my way.


Πέμπτη, 16 Ιουνίου 2011

Day 16: A song that you used to love but now hate

I guess I listened to it so many times I found out it's boring. :P

P.S. Nice video by the way.

Τετάρτη, 15 Ιουνίου 2011

Day 15: A song that describes you

And I don't want the world to see me, cause I don't think that they'd understand. (:



And I'd give up forever to touch you
Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am


And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive


And I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand

When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I don't want the world to see me
Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am.

It's great at highest volume. Trust me.

Δευτέρα, 13 Ιουνίου 2011

Day 13: A song that is a guilty pleasure

Okay, I know it is stupid, but I actually like it a little bit and I listen to it in some certain occasions. Guilty pleasure.




Sorry girl, but you missed out
Well tough luck that boy's mine now
We are more than just good friends
This is how the story ends
Too bad that you couldn't see
See the man that boy could be
There is more than meets the eye
I see the soul that is inside

He's just a boy and I'm just a girl
can I make it anymore obvious?

Κυριακή, 12 Ιουνίου 2011

Day 12: A song from a band you hate

Ok, I just can't stand their music.

Day 10: a song that makes you fall asleep

I listened to it every night when I am about to sleep. It's just peaceful. Try it. :)



Σου γράφω πάλι από ανάγκη
η ώρα πέντε το πρωί
το μόνο πράγμα που 'χει μείνει
όρθιο στον κόσμο είσαι εσύ

Τι να τις κάνω τις τιμές τους
τα λόγια τα θεατρικά
μες στην οθόνη του μυαλού μου
χάρτινα είδωλα νεκρά

Να μ' αγαπάς όσο μπορείς να μ' αγαπάς

Κοιτάζοντας μες στον καθρέφτη
βλέπω ένα πρόσωπο γνωστό
κι ίσως η ασχήμια του να φύγει
μόλις πλυθώ και ξυριστώ

Βρωμάει η ανάσα απ' τα τσιγάρα
βαραίνει ο νους μου απ' τα πολλά
στον τοίχο κάποια Μόνα Λίζα
σε φέρνει ακόμα πιο κοντά

Να μ' αγαπάς όσο μπορείς να μ' αγαπάς

Αν και τελειώνει αυτό το γράμμα
η ανάγκη μου δε σταματά
σαν το πουλί πάνω στο σύρμα
σαν τον αλήτη που γυρνά

Θέλω να 'ρθείς και να μ' ανάψεις
το παραμύθι να μου πεις
σαν μάνα γη να μ' αγκαλιάσεις
σαν άσπρο φως να ξαναρθείς

Day 09: A song that you can dance to

Wow the first time I heard this song, I was shopping in a shoes store and I wanted sooo badly to dance. It's a pity I couldn't because of the inappropriate place I was. Crap. Well, at least I did dance at home when I returned haha. :D

LALALALA MY HIPS DON'T LIE LALALALA


Τετάρτη, 8 Ιουνίου 2011

Day 08: A song that you know all the words to

How many times have I listened to Miss you? I love these lyrics.




Hello there the angel from my nightmare
The shadow in backround of the morgue
The unsespecting victim of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack and Sally if we want
Where you can always find me
And we'll have Halloween on Christmas
And in the night we'll wish this never ends
We'll wish this never end

Where are you? And I'm so sorry.
I cannot sleep, I cannot dream tonight.
I need somebody and always.
This sick strange darkness comes creeping on so haunting everytime.

And as I stared I counted the webs from all the spiders,
catching things and eating their insides.
Like indecision to call you
And hear your voice of treason.
Will you come home and stop this pain tonight?
Stop this pain tonight.

Don't waste your time on me you're already the voice inside my head.

I miss you, miss you.

Day 07: A song that reminds you of a certain event

Beautiful movie, perfect soundtrack, ideal for Contemporary Limon dancing. It reminds me of my last performance, which took place recently in a theatre, from the dance school I go to. I could just stay in this stage forever. Amazing feeling, though I didn't enjoy it as much as I wished. Nobody remembers me after all.

Δευτέρα, 6 Ιουνίου 2011

Day 06: A song that reminds you of somewhere

Wonderwall reminds me of my classroom at school last year, as we all together kept on singing it every time it crossed on our minds. Pure moments.

Because, maybe, you're gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you're my wonderwall..




Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna throw it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk along are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you
I don't know how

Because maybe
You're gonna be the one who saves me ?
And after all
You're my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day?
But they'll never throw it back to you
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you're not to do
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do
About you now

And all the roads that lead to you were winding
And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
I don't know how

I said maybe
You're gonna be the one who saves me ?
And after all
You're my wonderwall

I said maybe
You're gonna be the one who saves me ?
And after an
You're my wonderwall

Said maybe
You're gonna be the one that saves me
You're gonna be the one that saves me
You're gonna be the one that saves me

Κυριακή, 5 Ιουνίου 2011

Day 05: A song that reminds you of someone

It reminds me of probably the most important person in my life.
Nothing more to say.



They sold the old house
Boarded up the rooms just the way you wanted
They sold your possessions
Gave them all away with the guns
You sing like the wind in the trees at night
You think I'm asleep but I'm awake for it
You think you can hide so easily
That noone ever hears you

And I say love has led us astray
Love won't let us sleep

First we're cut from the cloth in perfect shapes
Then we're tied in a knot and we're left to fray
Can you even see what you're doin to me
You sleep in the leaves and I can't wake you up
You float like a reed in the river bank
If I dive too deep I can't hear you
But everyone else does

And love has led us astray
Love won't let us sleep
And love has led us astray
Love won't let us sleep

And love has led us astray
Love won't let us sleep
And love has led us astray
Love won't let us sleep

Astray, astray, astray
Astray, astray, astray
First we're cut from the cloth in perfect shapes
Then we're tied in a knot and we're left to fray
Love has led us astray

Σάββατο, 4 Ιουνίου 2011

Day 04: A song that makes you sad

Another difficult decision, I've so many songs that make me sad.
By the way, it's Muse, it's Falling away with you and it's beautiful.


I can't remember when it was good
moments of happiness elude
maybe I just misunderstood

all of the love we left behind
watching the flash backs intertwine
memories I will never find

so I'll love whatever you become
and forget the reckless things we've done
I think our lives have just begun
I think our lives have just begun

and I'll feel my world crumbling,
and I'll I feel my life crumbling
and feel my soul crumbling away
and falling away,
falling away with you

staying awake to chase a dream
tasting the air you're breathing in
I hope I won't forget a thing

promise to hold you close and pray
watching the fantasies decay
nothing will ever stay the same

and all of the love we threw away
and all of the hopes we've cherished fade
making the same mistakes again
making the same mistakes again

and I feel my world crumbling,
and I feel my life crumbling down,
I can feel my soul crumbling away,
and falling away,
falling away with you

all of the love we left behind
watching the flash backs intertwine
memories I will never find
memories I will never find.

Day 03: A song that makes you happy

I don't know why, but since the first time I listened to Californication it always makes me relaxed and generally puts me in a good mood. It's the melody probably. It seems to me it come out naturally...




Psychic spies from China
Try to steal your mind's elation
Little girls from Sweden
Dream of silver screen quotations
And if you want these kind of dreams
It's Californication

It's the edge of the world
And all of western civilization
The sun may rise in the East
At least it settles in the final location
It's understood that Hollywood
sells Californication

Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Celebrity skin is this your chin
Or is that war your waging

Chorus:
First born unicorn
Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
Be my very own constellation
A teenage bride with a baby inside
Getting high on information
And buy me a star on the boulevard
It's Californication

Space may be the final frontier
But it's made in a Hollywood basement
Cobain can you hear the spheres
Singing songs off station to station
And Alderaan's not far away
It's Californication

Born and raised by those who praise
Control of population everybody's been there and
I don't mean on vacation

Chorus

Destruction leads to a very rough road
But it also breeds creation
And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
They're just another good vibration
And tidal waves couldn't save the world
From Californication

Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Sicker than the rest
There is no test
But this is what you're craving

Chorus

Day 02: Your least favorite song

I think that the title of the day 02 doesn't mean exactly the song that you absolutely hate, but just your least favorite song. So after checking my favorite-song playlist on my ipod, I decided that my least favorite song is "Coming home", because the only thing I like is the refrain. And here's the video. (:

I'm coming home, I'm coming home.
Tell the world I'm coming home.
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday.
I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes.
I'm coming home, I'm coming home.
Tell the world I'm coming home.

Day 01: Your Favorite Song

It was hard to choose though.
"Sometimes" is something else. It always makes me feel okay. (:

Sometimes when I look deep in your eyes I swear I can see your soul.




There's a storm outside, and the gap between crack and thunder
Crack and thunder, is closing in, is closing in
The rain floods gutters, and makes a great sound on the concrete
On a flat roof, there's a boy leaning against the wall of rain
Aerial held high, calling "come on thunder, come on thunder"

Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your soul
Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your soul

It's a monsoon, and the rain lifts lids off cars
Spinning buses like toys, stripping them to chrome
Across the bay, the waves are turning into something else
Picking up fishing boats and spewing them on the shore

The boy is hit, lit up against the sky, like a sign, like a neon sign
And he crumples, drops into the gutter, legs twitching
The flood swells his clothes and delivers him on, delivers him on

Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your soul
Sometimes, when I look deep in your eyes, I swear I can see your soul

There's four new colors in the rainbow
An old man's taking polaroids
But all he captures is endless rain, endless rain
He says listen, takes my head and puts my ear to his
And I swear I can hear the sea

Somtimes, when I look in your eyes I can see your soul
(I can reach your soul)
(I can touch your soul)
Sometimes..

Introduction

I fell in love with those 30-day-challenges, so I couldn't of course resist the temptation of doing them. I love theater, cinema, photography, literature, music and staff like that, and it would be great if I could share these things with other people like me. I actually kind of started one on my other blog but it would be pointless with all these 30+ posts filling it, as its contest is purely personal -almost. I created thus this 30-day-challenge blog for this reason. Why in English? Don't know, I guess I express myself better, and further practice always helps.

This blog will contain challenges with films, songs, pictures and everything that comes to my notice.

I hope you'll enjoy it. (:
Have a nice month and a perfect summer, too.


P.S. These challenges are not created by me, I just came across to them on the net.
