    What favourite song of yours do you think best summarizes who you are?

    I came to the realization this afternoon that it is "The Sounds of Silence" by Simon & Garfunkel.

    Despite what some RJ members might think, it is not "Bigmouth Strikes Again" by The Smiths! icon_razz.gif

    Dalida's Je Suis Malade




    Translation

    I don’t dream anymore, I don’t smoke anymore
    I don’t have a history anymore
    I am dirty without you
    I am ugly without you
    I am like an orphan in a dormitory

    I don’t feel like living in my life
    My life stops when you leave
    I don’t have a life anymore and even my bed
    Turns into a platform (of a station)
    When you go away

    I am ill
    Completely ill
    Like when my mother went out in the evening
    And that she left me alone with my despair

    I am ill, fully ill
    You come, we never know when
    You leave again, we never know where
    And it will be soon two years
    Since you didn’t give a damn.

    Like to a rock
    Like to a sin
    I am locked on to you
    I am tired, I am exhausted
    To pretend being happy when they are here

    I drink every night
    But all whiskies
    For me, they have the same taste
    And all the boats carry your flag
    I don’t know anymore where to go, you are everywhere

    I am ill
    Completely ill
    I pour my blood in your body
    And i am like a dead bird when you sleep

    I am ill
    Perfectly ill
    You have deprived me of all my songs
    You have drained me of all my words
    And I have the heart completely ill
    Though i had talent before having your skin

    This love is killing me
    If this goes on, i’ll die alone with me
    Near my radio, like an idiot kid
    Listening to my own voice singing

    I am ill
    Completely ill
    Like when my mother went out in the evening
    And that she left me alone with my despair

    I am ill
    This it is, i am ill
    You have deprived me of all my songs
    You have drained me of all my words
    And I have the heart completely ill
    Surrounded by barricades
    You understand, I am ill



    I await the mention of Baby Got Back...

    I thought there was a reason why I liked you! I have always gotten along well with lesbians. I think it is something to do with growing up around my mom. Although she is straight, she could be an honorary lesbian. Definitely not a "girly-girl"icon_lol.gif

    One, by U2; represents me in a dark time of my life. I think Rain, by Madonna is a good fit for my lovelife, but for one overall... I'll have to get back to you.

    "You Learn" from Alanis Morisette. I take everything as a learning experience. Chaos equates to growth and hardship is usually the only thing that brings chaos to our lives.

    My favorite line in the whole song is:

    "Wear it out the way a three year old would do. Melt it down: you're gonna have to eventually anyway..."

    the song that first made me realize i have a responsibility outside myself (pretty good for 11 years old):
    "man in the mirror" by michael jackson

    the song that reminds me of my job (and my current philosophy on guys):
    "feel u up" by prince

    the song that reminds me to not close off completely, even if that seems like the easier choice:
    "frozen" by madonna

    the song that inspired me to be a dancer:
    "miss you much" by janet jackson

    the song that represents my true self (the love stricken, forlorn, tragically sentimental, idealistically romantic and overly sensitive heart and soul trying to not become jaded just yet):
    "dream a little dream of me" as sung by mama cass
