525.600 Minutes – Seasons of love

Category: PerceptiiAndy @ 11:31

Daca mai tineti minte, la un moment dat v-am vorbit despre Rent (which I still love), pe care am avut placerea sa-l revad aseara, de data asta nu filmul in sine ci un live filmat chiar pe Broadway. Si iar am cazut pe ganduri, oare noi aici o sa constientizam vreodata ce inseamna muzica? Ce inseamna pasiunea? Ce inseamna emotia? (noi = “muzicienii” din Romania). Ma uitam la ei cat de intens traiau fiecare clipa pe scena, si cum se identificau cu personajele. Si ma uitam la ei la final … si am vazut peste 20 de oameni care stateau pe scena cantand ultima piesa plangand si imbratisandu-se. Ah … pasiunea … ce termen ciudat si neinteles :)

Anyway,  avand in vedere ca maine se termina anul, m-am gandit sa va fac un “cadou” pentru cei care aveti urechi sa-l primiti: piesa cu care incepe si se termina Rent – Seasons of Love, pentru ca in fond si la urma urmei, tocmai se va termina inca o serie de 525.600 de minute din viata noastra (versurile sunt sub clip). Enjoy!

Five hundred, twenty-five thousand, six hundred minutes,
Five hundred, twenty-five thousand, six hundred moments so dear.
Five hundred, twenty-five thousand, six hundred – how do you measure,
measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee.
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.
In five hundred, twenty-five thousand, six hundred minutes -
how do you measure a year in the life?

How about love?
Measure in love.
Seasons of love.

Five hundred, twenty-five thousand, six hundred minutes minutes!
Five hundred, twenty-five thousand, six hundred minutes journeys to plan.
Five hundred, twenty-five thousand, six hundred minutes minutes -
how do you measure the life of a woman or man?

In truths that she learned,
or in times that he cried
In bridges he burned,
Or the way that she died

It’s time now to sing out,
tho’ the story never ends
let’s celebrate – remember a year in the life of friends.

Remember the love! (Oh You got to, you got to remember the love)
Remember the love! (You know that love is a gift from up above)
Remember the love! (Share love, give love, spread love)
Measure in love. Seasons of love! Seasons of love (Measure, measure your life in love)

Seasons of love.

No day but today (sau expresii ale umanitatii)

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes,
Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?

In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
How do you measure a year in the life?

Astea au fost primele cuvinte pe care le-am auzit prima oara cand am vazut Rent. Ce e Rent? Un film, de fapt un musical, o adaptare pentru ecran a unuia dintre cele mai longevive spectacole de pe Broadway. De ce un post despre Rent? Pentru ca l-am revazut aseara pe HBO si pentru ca din cand in cand mai merge cate un post serios si pe porcaria de blog al micutului porc.

Lasand la o parte toate prejudecatile despre supra-utilizarea conceptului de “love” in filme, muzica, arta, etc Rent este unul dintre cele mai bine realizate “filme” pe care le-am vazut vreodata. Dialogul este aproape inexistent, toata “forta” filmului fiind transmisa prin intermediul cantecelor si al interpretarii perfecte a actorilor/cantaretilor.

Homosexualitate, droguri, iubire, ura, toleranta si intoleranta, compasiune, incredere, SIDA, transexualitate, moarte, speranta, prietenie … cateva din cuvintele astea sunt suficiente pentru a genera o replica gen “Ah .. da … poate e misto .. dar nu cred ca o sa ma uit..”. Stiti proverbul ala “never judge a book by its cover” ? Ei bine, asta se aplica si in cazul lui Rent, mai ales pentru ca toate cuvintele de mai sus se imbina perfect in povestea filmului.

Rent este (la propriu) o calatorie prin viata, trecand de la o traire la alta in the blink of an eye. In functie de perceptii, Rent chiar ar putea fi clasificat drept o “expresie a vietii”.

Definitely must-see .. and must-hear (asta doar daca aveti rabdare pt. asa ceva evident)! Descrierile/review-urile won’t, can’t and don’t do it justice :-)

There’s only us, there’s only this
Forget regret or life is yours to miss
No other road, no other way
No day but today

….

There’s only now, there’s only here
Give in to love or live in fear
No other path, no other way
No day but today
