Musical journey (101)

It's a brand new year and although I'm at a point in my life where I don't actively set many goals or resolutions as I'm happy where I am right now, there are still some things I plan to start doing or do more this year, as follows:

  • Sell more of my photo books updated with my latest shoots and this time packing in more naughty full-frontals - hehe (learn more about the book here)
  • Getting my well-deserved promotion
  • Go to more parties and let loose
  • Take the shorter version of the holiday which I cancelled so that I can do the things I wrote here
  • Get the way-overdue colonoscopy out of the way to get an all-clear (there's cancer history in the family)
  • Make more friends so I can have more weekend options
  • Continue cutting carbs from my diet for my abs to regain its former glory (something I started when I had to lean-up for a party last week)
  • Perhaps the most exciting thing would be to perform live in a kink-themed musical band (there are already three other parties interested in joining the group playing guitar, bass, keyboard and drums - a complete band). And I've been invited to be the lead singer! It's still early days and I'll post more updates as things progress. I'm feeling SO freaking stoked about this!!!

As you know, music-sharing is one of the core purpose of this blog and so here comes this month's musical post. This composition is about a woman who fell in love with a man not knowing that he already had wedding plans with another woman. The man jilted her in the end and married his fiancée. Because both women knew each other, the spurned lover was invited to the wedding and the groom allowed that to happen so that no one will suspect anything. To torment herself, she decided to attend the event and the song writes about her feelings as the wedding ceremony is about to start. I chose the clip because the groom in it is so delectable with such a perfect blend of prettiness and masculinity. Don't you think so?

The good thing about this song is you can swap the dumped woman with a man who cross-dresses and it will become a gay love story!



[新娘]

词  /  曲 : 锦泉
 

灯光照亮彷徨
掌声带茫然
提琴奏不起浪漫
酒杯盛满了惆怅
香醇的感伤
试图淹没恐惧醉倒孤单
一个个赔笑的宴客
喧喧闹闹掩饰了不屑神色
舞台上见证
一句句带刺的颂歌
哼哼唱唱怜悯交杂愤恨
请任由我放肆放声

披上婚纱我会是怎样
如今就只能进入梦乡来寻觅它
你别看新郎多温柔啊
其实最绝情的就是他
见异就思迁
全是他

雍容华贵的晚装
犹如烟花绽放
绚丽中也把痛点燃
闪烁耀眼的泪光
化开无瑕的妆
揭露心灵深处脆弱的疮

一刹那无私的快门
冷冷冰冰地把你罪恶感
凝固成形了
一辈子不弃不离分
空空洞洞地扩散和延伸
我真的无法继续再忍

让我化作一只蝴蝶
从这团侮辱拂袖而去那么潇洒
你别看新郎多温柔啊
其实最绝情的就是他
欺哄又诈骗
全是他




[The Bride]

Lights illuminating hesitation
Applause tinged with bewilderment
Strings playing but failing to stir up romanticism
Wine glasses filled to the brim with melancholy
Mellow notes of sadness
Trying its best to drown the terror and loneliness

Every guest there to smile and grovel
With pompousness hiding signs of disdain
Just to witness what is happening on the stage
Each word in the songs of praise bearing thorns
With pity and resentment mixed in
Please let me sing at the top of my voice without a care

How would I look with a wedding veil
I can only see that in dreams now
Do not be deceived by how gentle the groom appears to be
For he is the most heartless one
Who is so ready to forsake the old for someone new

Full of grace and poise in that gown
Like fireworks in full bloom
Gorgeous yet igniting pain at the same time
The flickering dazzle refracting through tears
Dissolving that flawless makeup
Revealing the scars deep within the soul

The flashes of the camera instantaneously and impartially
Freezing guilt into form
The eternal promise to never leave each other
Such empty words diffusing into dead space
I cannot tolerate this any longer

Let me transform into a butterfly
And let me leave this humiliation with ease and style
Do not be deceived by how gentle the groom appears to be
For he is the most heartless one
And the greatest deceiver of them all
