Der Song zum Sonntag #15: Very Emotional Edition

Posted by stylebitch on January 5, 2008

Aus aktuellem Anlass (strictly personal, sorry bitchlings!) möchte ich diese Woche “Taking Chances” von Celine Dion als Sonntagsong posten. Und zwar schon am Samstag. Das hat mehr mit dem Text des Stückes als mit Celine oder der Musik zu tun. Obwohl ich ein großer Bewunderer ihrer gesanglichen Fähigkeiten bin. Ihr Timbre, Phrasierungen etc. sind sicherlich Geschmackssache, und wenn sie mit dem Publikum spricht, gleitet das rasch in ein wenig unangenehm kitschige Momente ab. Doch wer sich selbst mal halbwegs ernsthaft mit Gesang beschäftigt hat, kann sie eigentlich nur zu ihrem Organ und ihrer Technik beglückwünschen. Wie Mariah “my hips go condo” Carey. Einfach flawless! Enjoy!!

Taking Chances

Don’t know much about your life.
Don’t know much about your world, but
Don’t want to be alone tonight,
On this planet they call earth.

You don’t know about my past, and
I don’t have a future figured out.
And maybe this is going too fast.
And maybe it’s not meant to last,

[Chorus] But what do you say to taking chances,
What do you say to jumping off the edge?
Never knowing if there’s solid ground below
A hand to hold, or hell to pay,
What do you say,
What do you say?

I just want to start again,
And maybe you could show me how to try,
And maybe you could take me in,
Somewhere underneath your skin?

[Chorus]

And I had my heart beaten down,
But I always come back for more, yeah.
There’s nothing like love to pull you up,
When you’re laying down on the floor there.
So talk to me, talk to me,
Like lovers do.
Yeah walk with me, walk with me,
Like lovers do,
Like lovers do.

[Chorus]

Don’t know much about your life
And I don’t know much about your world.
