Contemporary music by bands and DJs from around the globe, nights full of dancing and partying, films, theatre, visual arts and talks – that’s what Sydney Festival is all about.

Now being held for 37th year, Sydney Festival aims to be one of the best summer festivals in the world, bringing together world’s great artists of all sorts. This year, the three-week festival will be featuring performances by France’s Orchestre National De Jazz, David Byrne together with St Vincent, a radical retelling of Handel’s opera Semele by Ludger Engels that includes outrageous couture by Vivienne Westwood and catwalk models with attitude. During the festival you can also expect to see and hear works by The Royal Shakespeare Company and world-renowned composer and director Heiner Goebbels.

The festival’s Honda Festival Garden will be offering its visitors comedy and music. Some of Sydney Festival’s best shows can be seen in Sydney Festival Parramatta, kind of a Festival-within-the-Festival.

For three weeks attendees have the chance to go to 92 events and 360 performances in total and roughly half a million visitors are expected to visit the festival area. With 18 outdoor events offered to people for free, Sydney Festival is Australia’s biggest free outdoor program of concerts and events.

More information, photos and videos about the festival can be found at http://www.sydneyfestival.org.au/. But just to give you an idea of what you might be getting yourself into – the first night of the festival, 60 000 festival attendees celebrated the summer in Sydney at the Daptone Super Soul Revue, dancing and partying.

Adele-Someone Like You

Adele-Someone-Like-You“Someone Like You” is a song by English singer-songwriter Adele. Written by Adele and Dan Wilson for her second studio album 21, the song was inspired by a broken relationship of hers, and lyrically it speaks of Adele coming to terms with it.

An accompanying music video for the song was directed by Jake Nava and it was filmed in Paris, France. The video showed Adele walking alone through the streets with a sad look on her face. Critics praised the video for being simple and perfect for the sound of the song.

My Speak : The song is slow, powerful and worth listening to again and again with a slow painful overtone. Adele has a special and unique voice and this is right up there one of her best. This song has a lingering touch like anything that is good and needs to be tried again. Video is dark , something I did not particularly like, but it did potray the required emotions.

I heard that you settled down

That you found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,”
Yeah.

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

I just came across this video titled – ‘ The Google+ Song‘. It sung to tune of “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen. Yeah yeah I know, you’re probably all done experimenting with G+ and then moved back to Facebook. However, the song’s still quite catchy. I like the beginning especially. The video is about a female who discovers G+ and then her journey from being a sceptic to an addict! Read on, for the lyrics and also to know who that model in the video is!

“Moves Like Jagger”
(feat. Christina Aguilera)

[Verse 1:]
Just shoot for the stars
If it feels right
And aim for my heart
If you feel like
And take me away and make it OK
I swear I’ll behave

You wanted control
So we waited
I put on a show
Now I make it
You say I’m a kid
My ego is big
I don’t give a shit
And it goes like this

[Chorus:]
Take me by the tongue
And I’ll know you
Kiss me ’til you’re drunk
And I’ll show you

All the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger

I don’t need to try to control you
Look into my eyes and I’ll own you

With the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger

[Verse 2:]
Baby it’s hard
When you feel like you’re broken and scarred
Nothing feels right
But when you’re with me
I make you believe
That I’ve got the key

So get in the car
We can ride it
Wherever you want
Get excited
And you want to steer
But I’m shifting gears
I’ll take it from here
And it goes like this

[Chorus:]
Take me by the tongue
And I’ll know you
Kiss me ’til you’re drunk
And I’ll show you

All the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger

I don’t need to try to control you
Look into my eyes and I’ll own you

With the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger

[Bridge:]
You want to know how to make me smile
Take control, own me just for the night
But if I share my secret
You’re gonna have to keep it
Nobody else can see this

So watch and learn
I won’t show you twice
Head to toe, oh baby, rub me right
But if I share my secret
You’re gonna have to keep it
Nobody else can see this

And it goes like this

[Chorus:]
Take me by the tongue
And I’ll know you
Kiss me ’til you’re drunk
And I’ll show you

All the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger

I don’t need to try to control you
Look into my eyes and I’ll own you

With the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger
I’ve got the moves like Jagger

Great to see Akon adapting to Bollywood and a great sync with the Hindi Lyrics.This is a Vishal-Shekhar composition Chammak Challo that has been rendered by R& B artist Akon for the Shah Rukh Khan production Ra One.

“Rolling in the Deep” is a song by English singer-songwriter Adele from her second studio album, 21. The song was written by Adele and Paul Epworth and has been described by Adele as a “dark blues-y gospel disco tune”.

The song features “martial arts”, “pounding piano keys” (played by Neil Crowley) and “chanting backing singers”.

Adele’s vocals have been described as having a “a hint of Wanda Jackson’s dirty-blues growl.” According to Nadine Cheung from AOL Radio Blog the song is “sung from the perspective of a scorned lover, who is finally able to see the light, but despite regretful sentiments, reconciliation is not an option here.”

Now here is my opinion, I did find that shade of Wanda Jackson in her voice, found it very strange to find such a track on the top positions, it sounds like a classic,great to see the flame of such music alive is alive.Fantastic video, great sight to see the glass vibrate to the beats, nice symbolic representation of the frustration and regret with the broken dishes and yes of course not to mention the Martial Arts. One complete viewing of the video and I am hooked onto the song.

Lyrics

There’s a fire starting in my heart,

Reaching a fever pitch and it’s bringing me out the dark,

Finally, I can see you crystal clear,
Go ahead and sell me out and a I’ll lay your shit bare,
See how I’ll leave with every piece of you,
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do,

There’s a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it’s bring me out the dark,

Now what you have here is a song I can assure you which will symbolize the Summer 2011, awesome cult track from the Delhi Belly starring Imran Khan. A movie which is supposed to give a nitro boost to his career if it all goes well. Apparently the smartly crafted lyrics sound like a very popular indian swear-word.

I liked the beats of the song though.The next thing I know, that song’s playing everywhere and why shoudl it not.Its COOL! So here it is, the song, the details, the posters..have fun. A fellow author very maturely highlighted his concern over the little kids (especially his young nephew) uttering the expletives, cleverly hidden in the lyrics. On the other hand I can’t help imagining how this song will be received when it is recited at family parties, school singing competitions and yes fresher parties across our very own engineering colleges. Certainly something very interesting to wait and watch.

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me….
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T’was Grace that taught…
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear…
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares…
we have already come.
T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far…
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me…
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be…
as long as life endures.

When we’ve been here ten thousand years…
bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise…
then when we’ve first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me….
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

Download Way Back Into Love.mp3

I’ve been living with a shadow overhead
I’ve been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I’ve been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past
I just can’t seem to move on

I’ve been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need them again someday
I’ve been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind


All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
Oh oh oh

I’ve been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I’ve been searching but I just don’t see the signs
I know that it’s out there
There’s got to be something for my soul somewhere

I’ve been looking for someone to shed some light
Not somebody just to get me through the night
I could use some direction
And I’m open to your suggestions

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart again
I guess I’m hoping you’ll be there for me in the end

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

There are moments when I don’t know if it’s real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can’t make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart to you
I’m hoping you’ll show me what to do
And if you help me to start again
You know that I’ll be there for you in the end

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I got a dirty mind

I got filthy ways

I’m tryna Bath my Ape in your Milky Way

I’m a legend, I’m irreverent

I be reverand

I be so fa-a-ar up, we don’t give a f-f-f-f-ck

Welcome to the danger zone

Step into the fantasy

You are not invited to the otherside of sanity

They calling me an alien

A big headed astronaut

Maybe it’s because your boy Yeezy get ass a lot

 

[Katy Perry]

You’re so hypnotizing

Could you be the devil

Could you be an angel

 

Your touch magnetizing

Feels like I am floating

Leaves my body glowing

 

They say be afraid

You’re not like the others

Futuristic lover

Different DNA

They don’t understand you

 

Your from a whole other world

A different dimension

You open my eyes

And I’m ready to go

Lead me into the light

 

[Chorus]

Kiss me, ki-ki-kiss me

Infect me with your love and

Fill me with your poison
