Torn

“Torn” is a song which was sung by Ednaswap. Ednaswap is an American rockband and this song is in their debut album “Ednaswap”. Torn was written by ScottCutler, Anne Preven and Phil Thornalley, and the lyrics were written by Preven. Manypeople covered this song, and Australian pop singer Natalie Imbruglia’s cover is themost famous one. Her cover went to number one on singles charts in many countries. In1997, she covered this song for her debut album “Left of the middle”. She recorded thiscover in Kilburn, London with lead guitar David Munday, bass and rhythm guitar PhilThoronally, drums Chuck Sado, drum programming Sam Hardaker and backgroundvocals Katrina Leskanich, and released it as a single then it became worldwide hit. Shereceived a Grammy nomination for the Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

This song’s lyrics make me sad. In these lyrics, a woman seems to be tired of loving her boyfriend. I don’t know why she is torn, but we can feel how she is sad and miserable by lyrics, because these lyrics are all negative.

In this video, Natalie Imbruglia is singing in a house and a man who seems like her boyfriend comes to the house. At first, the two are getting along well each other and enjoy being together. But they stop kissing and there are many scenes where the distance between them is great. I think these imply that they are tired of being together. At the last part of this video, the house is broken down. The house is just a set, and the two are just performing in some play. I think the relationship of the couple sung in this song is just a performance, too. I got a big impression that she is singing this song without laughing. It helps me to understand her sadness.

Every Breath You Take

“Every Breath You Take” is sung by The Police. This song is on their album“Synchronicity” written by Sting. This song’s single got the to 36 in the U.K. Thissong is very popular in Germany and U.S.A.

In this song, a man shows his love to his ex-girlfriend. This song’s title“Every Breath You Take” is translated in Japanese “見つめていたい (I want to stareat you)”. This title tells us how deeply he loves his ex-girlfriend. We can understandhis love from this lyric, but the ex-girlfriend’s feelings are not written. I think thepart of lyrics; “Every move you make Every vow you break Every smile you fakeEvery claim you stake I’ll be watching you” make me feel he is like a stalker. Butmake, break, fake, stake are rhyme so I like this part.

This song’s video is monochrome so it is very impressive. Background is allblack and The Police’s members are playing their instruments. The rhythm ofdrums and base are very simple so the vocalist’s singing voice is conspicuous. Theyare very cool and I like this song.

 

 

 

 

My school life

It has past half of my university school life and my volleyball game is in second set now. I lost the first set, and now 15-15 in the second set.

I entered this school and my studying hours decreased. When I was a high school student, I studied hard to enter this university. But I entered here, and I started a part time job and I entered a circle. I enjoyed my hobbies in my free time. I lived a full life but I didn’t study. I think studying is our duty as a student, so I lost the first set.

When I became a sophomore, I realized that I must study to improve my English skills. I decided to go abroad to study during summer vacation. It is a very good chance to improve my English skills. We have a lot of time in summer vacation, so I can make good use of my time by going abroad. In addition, I started as a part time of a tutor. The work is very difficult and hard. It is difficult to teach English for people who are not good at English. They don’t like English but I want them to like English. I prepare my classes for a long time and try to make my classes easy to understand. The classes are for my students, but it is good study for me, too. Then my time of studying English is increasing.

But I often oversleep and I am late for my classes. I’m not good at getting up early. In addition, I often hand in my homework after the deadline. So the second set’s score is tied now. If I overcome getting up early and hand in my homework perfectly, I will get this set. When I become a junior and a senior, I’ll study more and more, and do my best for job hunting. Then, I’m sure to win this game.

Metaphors

I made three new metaphors; encyclopedia, white bear, and the sun.

An encyclopedia means a person who has a wide knowledge of many things. We can use this word when we praise the speaker’s knowledge.

A white bear means the people who has white skin and big body. It includes the meaning of the power of a bear.

The sun means the people who have passion and enthusiasm. In addition, the people who has beautiful smile or popular person are also called the sun.

Beautiful Soul

I’ll introduce a song whose name is “Beautiful Information” and I’ll talk about information about the song. This song was sung by Jesse McCartney in America, and released on September 28, 2004 as his first studio album. The album was a success in the United States, Italy and Taiwan, and sold about a million and a half CDs in U.S.

Next, I’ll explain the meaning of the lyrics. This song is about a man’s love to a woman. He is mad about her, but his love doesn’t reach her. The part of lyrics; “I don’t want another pretty face. I don’t want just anyone to hold. I don’t want my love to go to
waste. I want you and your beautiful soul” shows his love clearly and directly, and the phrases are easy to sing and remember because they used the same word “ I don’t want”.

Then, I’ll talk about the song’s video. In this video, two men, including Jesse
McCartney and two women enjoy driving, and we can know the woman he loves because he sometimes glances at the woman with singing. When they are just the two of them, he tries to get close to her and kiss but a friend calls and interrupts, so he fails. But she seems that she doesn’t accept him and she goes away from him in a hurry, so I think this scene shows his love doesn’t reach her.

I like this song and video because I can feel his deep love to her and this song’s melody is beautiful. In addition, this song shows Jesse’s attraction very much. I think they are like more than just a friends but less than lovers, and this song make me want
to be in love with somebody.
