    Lightbulb Music from guitars can bring sadness

    .
    Temasek Green... That's quite true, guitar works can bring sadness.

    In fact, lead music from guitars do talk to us... whether in sorrow or in joy.

    Tonight is a very cold night in Melbourne (about 6°C). With a breeze blowing, it felt like 4°C.

    I was walking along a main street in the city, when I heard and saw a Chinese girl (a busker), with a guitar, singing this song : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JFkvGlPG3Q

    Many stood in the cold to listen to her. Many of us felt sad for her that she has to be busking in a public place on such a cold night. But she sang so beautifully that our hearts wept, and for a moment we have forgotten how cold it was while listening to her singing.

    Thumbs up Bai Hu 白狐 - Arctic Fox

    Bai Hu 白狐 - Arctic Fox

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDMq...eature=related

    Nice classic Chinese love song. This song talks about the love of white fox with man. As the legend goes, he's released the fox from a trap in a former life which is why she swore her loyalty, and has been waiting him for quite a long time. White foxes in folklore live to a thousand years, gaining the ability to transform into a human in time. She's called "bai hu", it means "white fox". She helps him to gain laureateship. Finally, she died when he married another girl. Although he is unfaithful in his love to her, she feels no regret about loving him. This is a love song but it's really sad.

    Here's the English lyrics (credits to ukiechan):

    I am a fox-spirit formed in these thousand-years past,

    shaped by an eon's worth of solitude to last;

    could there be someone who heard my cries through the nights,

    or watched me dance when the lanterns flickered in their twilight?

    I'm a fox coalesced from snow to drift till time turns me outcast,

    until my footsteps fall from the ages that played host to this guest,

    in search for the one that placed a heart's trap in my path,

    the poisoner who cast love's venom down the world I bathed.

    I knew you once: stripling, striving past some peasant hills,

    and left as your dreams crowned, when your den was filled.

    Before we part ways, would you care to watch another dance?

    I'm that snowy pup you freed hundreds of lives ago by chance.

    Can you see my dress swirling in the wind as soft steps crept

    away and the depth and weight of your vows are swept?

    Thumbs up Wǒ de Lóulán 我的楼兰 - My Loulan


    Wǒ de
    Lóulán 我的楼兰 - My Loulan

    This song is inspired by an archaeology finding of a 3,800-year old middle-aged female body that was buried in the bronze-age Xiaohe Tomb complex, located to the west of Lop Nor (near to Taklamakan Desert, the "sea of death"), Xinjiang, the far western province of China. The body was preserved so well that her hair, skin, nails were almost complete. She had sheep-skin covering, shoes, and hat on her body. Her face, nose, and eyes show that she was a beautiful woman when alive. "Loulan" (楼兰) is an old Chinese word for native people who lived in the areas of the finding.

    Archaeologists couldn't figure out why the body (1800 BCE) was able to last 3,800 years and it was the biggest mystery in Chinese archaeology history. They named the body "Loulan Beauty". Dao Lang 刀郎 is a famous songwriter and singer in China. Yun Duo 云朵, the singer of this song, is a Qiang ethnic from Sichuan ("Yun Duo" literally means a piece of cloud in the sky). Dao Lang took "Loulan Beauty" and romanticized her with this song's soul-shocking music. The lyrics are in poetry format.

    The lyrics tell a story of man who fell in love with "Loulan Beauty". He wants to travel far in long distance and back in time to see her beautiful face. He wants to make a mantle for her to keep her warm. He wants to extend his hands to touch her soul. He sees her in lights of the sun and the moon. And he wants to turn into the sand next to her so he could stay with her for thousands of years. The title "My Loulan" make sense in the context of its lyrics.

    For those who read and speak Chinese and wish to learn more about the story, here's a documentary link about the "楼兰美人" (Loulan Beauty) archaeology finding: simply click this Youtube link "新丝绸之路(1) 生与死的楼兰" too see the said documentary videos (in 5 parts).

    The credits for above info go to rayoh2011


    Wǒ de Lóulán 我的楼兰 - My Loulan
    Singer: Yun Duo 云朵
    Composer: Dao Lang 刀郎
    This song is available in Yun Duo's new album: Stubborn (倔强)

    Official MV: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuOQ8...eature=related
    Alt-ver (showing the beautiful actress, JING Tian 景甜): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf4V...eature=related


    Here are both the Chinese and English lyrics (credits to lakoje):

    我的楼兰

    My Loulan


    想问沙漠借那一根曲线
    I want to borrow the desert as a thread

    缝件披风为你御寒
    To sew a mantle to protect you from the cold

    用肺腑去触摸你的灵魂
    I will touch your soul with my bosom

    我就在那只火炉边取暖
    Whilst warming myself by the furnace (the desert)

    想问姻缘借那一根红线
    I want to borrow a red thread from the God of Love

    深埋生命血脉相连
    To bury under our intertwined lives and bloodstreams

    用丝绸去润泽你的肌肤
    I will smooth your skin with silk

    我就在那个怀抱里缠绵
    I am lingering in the arms

    你总是随手把银簪插在太阳上面
    Now you stick your hairpin above the sun

    万道光芒蓬松着你长发的波澜
    To let the beams of sunshine play in your floating hair

    我闻着芬芳跋涉着无限远
    I walk the distance of infinity after your fragrance

    只为看清你的容颜
    Only to take a close look at your face

    你总不小心把倩影靠在月亮上面
    Now you lean against the moon in an elegant pose

    万顷月光舞动着你优美的梦幻
    To let the beams of moonshine dance in your fantasy

    我闻着芬芳跋涉着无限远
    I walk the distance of infinity after your fragrance

    只为看清你的容颜
    Only to take a close look at your face

    谁与美人共浴沙河互为一天地
    Who can bathe the sea of sands with the beauty and become sky and earth with her

    谁与美人共枕夕阳长醉两千年
    Who can rest his head on the setting sun with the beauty and relish this moment for two thousand years

    从未说出我是你的尘埃
    I have never said to you that I'm only the dust to you

    但你却是我的楼兰
    But you have always been my Loulan

    Hi kelana,

    Thanks for the song, and the lyrics.

    Indeed, it's a sad song. Somehow, the majority of love songs are sad. Sad, but true.

    Hi Chris-ccc,

    It's my great pleasure that you do enjoy both songs

    in my perspective they are great both in melody and poetic lyrics, conveying powerful feeling, able to bring the listener's mind into the far away land of imagination...

    Cheers!

    Nothing really makes me weep,however,I do appreciate the songs more and more when I learn to sing

    them.

    *I used to go to The Grande Bibliothèque in downtwon Montreal,book a station,relax a bit,listen to Jeff Buckley http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8AWFf7EAc4 .Grandma died when I was taking English as second language at Mcgill university.Tears run in my eyes every time I watch this video clip.Every time I hear this song on the radio,I stop and pay attention to the song and remember my grandma a bit.Life goes on and on and on........I've learned to live without her.

    *It's a pity that we lost another good artist in twenty eleven.Amy Winehouse.These two sing to my soul,touch my spirit deeply,deeply,somehow I don't how to describe.Sounds like there's a devil living in their voices,like they had made a deal with devil.I wish they were still around.Another good piece was Elvis Presley.I don't know why they passed away for unknown reasons.Pity,pity,pity.

    Indeed, they are songs that make our hearts weep.

    As we have only a few hours left before Year 2013 ends, and before Year 2014 begins; we more often than normal, reflect on the sadder moments of the past year.

    Yes, it's an emotional time for all of us, at this time of the year.

    Wishing all BCers A Great New Year 2014 !!!

    But let's look forward; Look at what challenges we will be facing in 2014.

    So, it's time to leave sad memories behind. However, I am sure I shall be crying when we are seconds before 2014 begins.

    It depends on how deep in your heart is touched by the love. It depends on how you feel.

    But, you can also think about it; and you can have another look at it; just like what this song explains: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBD_8_da7lM

    Actually, whenever I listen to Teresa Teng singing, my heart weeps.

    I think of how great a singer she was, and think of why she had to die so young, at the age of only 42.
