I Want To Break Free ~ Queen

I want to break free

I want to break free
I want to break free from your lies
You're so self-satisfied I don't need you
I got to to break free
God knows, God knows I want to break free

I've fallen in love
I've fallen in love for the first time
And this time I know it's for real
I've fallen in love, yeah
God knows, God knows I've fallen in love

It's strange but it's true (hey yea)
I can't get over the way you love me like you do
But I have to be sure
When I walk out that door
Oh how I want to be free baby
Oh how I want to be free
Oh how I want to break free

But life still goes on
I can't get used to living without, living without, living without you
by my side
I don't want to live alone, hey
God knows got to make it on my own
So baby can't you see
I've got to break free

I've got to break free
I want to break free, yeah

I want I want I want I want to break free ..

Quotable Quotes

You think I'm an arrogant bastard who thinks he's above the law,
and I think you're a slime bucket who gets most of his facts wrong.

~ Steve Jobs Abdulfattah John Jandali (1955~2011)

Everybody Hurts ~ R.E.M.


When your day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,

When you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on

Don't let yourself go,

'cause everybody cries n everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong. Now it's time to sing along

When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)

If you feel like letting go, (hold on)

If you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on

'Cause everybody hurts. Take comfort in your friends

Everybody hurts. Don't throw your hand. Oh, no.

Don't throw your hand

If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If you're on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,

When you think you've had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes,

Everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes

And everybody hurts sometimes. So, hold on, hold on

Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

Everybody hurts. You are not alone

Edward Munch : The Scream (1893)

R.E.M. is a wonderful American rock band formed by Michael Stipe (singer), Peter Buck (guitarist), Mike Mills (bassist) and Bill Berry (drummer) in 1980. They have produced hauntingly beautiful albums like Document in later 1980s, with politically defiant tracks during the conservative Reagen era and Out Of Time in  mid 1990s, which contained the hypnotising track Losing My Religion. This particular track Everybody Hurts is from the album Automatic For The People, which was released during the early 1990s. Many critics consider Automatic For The People to be the best album of the band. R.E.M. would continue to reverberate in the hearts of the music lovers for times to come, as they pioneered the altenative rock genre with its 'plageant guitar chimes, folk-styled vocals, mystical awe and blissed-out surrender', as the music critic Seymond Reynolds had put it. R.E.M. is one of the few rock bands which is my personal favourite. They artistically reflected the predicament of our contemporary era with all its agonies, ecstasies and anguish in haunting rock music. A few days ago, during the last fortnight of September 2011, the band called it a day, by stating that, all things must end, and we wanted to do it right, to do it our way!

Au Revoir, R.E.M.!!
