Back to the 90′s 1: Dance Songs

05/26/2010

Like Artie of Glee, I am a frustrated dancer (btw, I’m not on a wheelchair LOL). As a kid, I would always watch my sister dance to these popular tunes.

These songs have gibberish lyrics, if not sung in Japanese or French or they are rap/dance songs. Our generation would sing and dance to it during Christmas parties, intramurals, fiestas or even when we were playing on the streets. We didn’t even care if we knew the exact title of the song nor the artist who sang it. Though I thought, if we had MTV when these songs were popular, we would know the artists names by heart.

Naalala ko pa may mga dance contests pa on TV lalo na sa Eat Bulaga.
Ang nakakatawa since some songs are in Japanese or French or dahil rap song nga sya, papalitan ang mga lyrics ng Tagalog. Madalas sleazy pa yung lyrics. Like this first video here:

French/Japanese/Latin songs

1. Angelina – PSY

Of course, who could forget the famous French lines replaced by Tagalog that go “baho mmmm mo…amoy mmmm… di ka nagsasabon, kinalikot mo pa” I found this subtitled version on YT.

Songs Choose Their Singers

04/02/2010

I wrote this post because I find these stuff remarkable. There are a lot of songs that were given to certain artists first before they got to the hands of the artists who popularized them. I also know that you can find these through the World Wide Web but I wanted to compile it for you guys to enjoy. (ang bait ko diba? :_)

I got these bits of information from my Twitter friends then I looked it up on Wikipedia.


Halo
Thanks to Misterhubs

Ryan Tedder said that he only tentatively offered the track Halo to Leona Lewis after Beyoncé initially took a long time to record it.

Why Trifler?

01/21/2010

Merriam-Webster defines the word as:

Main Entry: trifle Function: verb Inflected Form(s): tri·fled; tri·fling \-f(ə-)liŋ\

Etymology: Middle English truflen, triflen, from Anglo-French trufler to trick, talk nonsense Date: 14th century intransitive verb

1 a : to talk in a jesting or mocking manner or with intent to delude or mislead

b : to treat someone or something as unimportant

2 : to handle something idly transitive verb : to spend or waste in trifling or on trifles — tri·fler \-f(ə-)lər\ noun

synonyms trifle, toy, dally, flirt, coquet mean to deal with or act toward without serious purpose. trifle may imply playfulness, unconcern, indulgent contempt

From http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/trifler

I got the nick from these songs:

Now My Eyes Are Open And I Can See
You Were Devious And Shady
Only
Trifling With Me

-You Had Your Chance

Mariah Carey, Charmbracelet, 2002

You triflin’, good for nothing type of brother
Silly me, why haven’t I found another?
A baller, when times get hard
I need someone to help me out”

-Bills, Bills, Bills

Destiny’s Child, The Writing’s On The Wall, 1999

I used to toy with people’s emotions until everything came back to me. Now, I learned my lesson.
