Blue Moon

isa ako sa milyong milyong fans ni billie holiday. although matagal na syang wala, nag iwan sya ng legacy sa jazz. isa syang prostitute noong araw,was able to turn her life around and became the queen of jazz. the way she sings her songs always seem to come straight from her heart. one song of her that i really enjoy listening to is a song called blue moon. for one, i was able to relate to the lyrics. and the way she sang it was really awesome. frank sinatra also did a version of this song. so did our local band orange & lemons, pero di ko pa napapakinggan. sana lang ay di bakyain ng orange & lemons ang kantang ito. hehehe

Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love on my own…

Blue moon
You knew just what i was there for
You heard me saying a prayer
For someone i really could care for.

And suddenly there appeared before me
The only one my arms could ever hold
I heard someone whisper, “please, adore me”
And when i looked my moon had turned to gold.

Blue moon,
Now i’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart,
Without a love of my own
Without a love of my own…

Yes Billie Holiday.Fan din ako niyan. Para kang nasa langit pag naririnig mo siya pero mala-impyerno ang buhay niya. Na rape siya nung bata, nag adik, nag hirap, at sawi sa pagibig.

Ironic...parang ang sarap mabuhay kung naririnig mo siya pero yung sarili niyang buhay hindi niya naayos...pati yung tanging nagpapaliwanag ng gabi..kulay blue sa sad...what a voice..

I love you Billie...
