REMEMBERING MY HOME, SWEET HOME

Filed under: Uncategorized — celinejulie @ 10:50 pm

“A HOUSE IS MADE OF BRICK AND STONE, BUT A HOME IS MADE OF LOVE ALONE”

According to the definition above, I think my homes include Mahboonkrong Center, which is the place where I hanged out with my beloved friends during 1987-1995; DJ Station, which is the place where I met my beloved friends during 1995-2000; and my apartment room, which is made of my love for my teddy bears.

My friend just asked me about the songs which were played at DJ Station during 1995-2000. I don’t fully trust my memory, but I think they include:

  1. This is my reply to Vespertine in my bilingual blog:

    –Yes, the dance version of I DON’T WANT TO is very good. After I had read your comment, I searched for my old tape to listen to this song again. I have only Frankie Knuckles’ version of this song, because my friend, who is a die-hard fan of Frankie Knuckles, made a mixtape which includes this song for me.

    –Talking about CD singles reminds me of the record company RED BEAT in Thailand. I love this company very much, because it released many dance CD singles which include so many remix tracks in it. I just searched for the information about this company in Google and it leads me to Merveillesxx’s blog:
    http://www.bloggang.com/viewdiary.php?id=merveillesxx&month=02-2008&date=18&group=2&gblog=39

    –In the mid 1990’s, there was also a great CD shop in Bangkok called LASER FORUM. It was located in Silom Complex before it moved to Siam Square. It imported many CDs from abroad. Most of its regular customers are gays. I was too poor to buy many CDs from this shop because I hadn’t started working at that time. I think I bought only:

    1.MOVE ON BABY – Cappella

    2.ONLY LOVE CAN BREAK YOUR HEART – Saint Etienne

    3.SLOW BUILDINGS (ALBUM) – Pale Saints

    4.SPLIT (album) — Lush

    –Music One (Silom) was a great shop, though many of its great dance CDs were too expensive for me to buy. They were imported, and cost about 800-1500 baht. So I just kept on buying tapes for 105 baht at that time. Hahaha.

    –I asked my friends about the songs in DJ Station at that time. They include:

    1.AIN’T NOBODY – Diana King

    2.BELIEVE – Cher
    (How could I forget this megahit? Hahaha. I still heard this song being played in a restaurant today.)

    3.DANCE WITH ME – Debelah Morgan

    4.EVERYBODY’S FREE (TO FEEL GOOD) – Rozalla

    5.IT’S NOT RIGHT BUT IT’S OK – Whitney Houston

    6.NOBODY’S SUPPOSED TO BE HERE – Deborah Cox

    7.SEXUAL – Amber

    8.WAITING FOR TONIGHT – Jennifer Lopez

    9.WHEN I THINK OF YOU’95 (Morales mix) – Janet Jackson

    10.A WOMAN’S GOT THE POWER – Jennifer Holiday

  2. This is my reply to Black Forest in my bilingual blog:
    http://celinejulie.blogspot.com/2009/03/remembering-my-home-sweet-home.html

    Black forest, talking about “home”, I actually like the lyrics in the song GIVING YOU THE BEST THAT I GOT (Anita Baker) very much. It says

    “Somebody understands me
    Somebody gave his heart to me
    I stumbled my whole life long
    Always on my own, now I’m home

    My weary mind is rested
    And I feel as if my home is in your arms
    Fears are all gone, I like the sound of your song
    And I think I want to sing it forever”

    But I’m still not “home” yet according to the lyrics of this song.

    http://celinejulie.blogspot.com/2009/03/remembering-my-home-sweet-home.html

    Vespertine, as for Diana King, I really love the song I SAY A LITTLE PRAYER. DJ Station also played this song a lot of times then.

    As for the song AIN’T NOBODY, I also like the version sung by Jaki Graham very much. I also bought its cassette single.

    Yes, I think Deborah Cox’s time is too short. Many artists have shorter careers than I thought, such as Debbie Gibson and Tiffany. A few artists have longer careers than I thought, such as Kylie Minogue and Britney Spears.

    I just listend to an old dance mixtape in the 1990’s. It has the song LOVE ON AND ON by Lorraine Cato. I worship this song, but I almost find no information about it on the internet. Lorraine Cato should have been much more famous than this. I only find one song by her in Youtube. It’s called DID IT.

    As for Janet Jackson, one of my most favorites of her song is LET’S WAIT AWHILE, which is a slow one.

    Ah! I forgot IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND. This song was a megahit in DJ Station, too.

    Annie Lennox seems to be a gay icon like Barbra Streisand, though they are not gays. I was shocked by the beauty of her music video WHY, when it came out in 1992. My most favorite of her music video is BEETHOVEN (I LOVE TO LISTEN TO) when she was in Eurythmics.

    Big thanks to you, Vespertine. I love the songs you post very much, especially EVERYBODY UP, POKER FACE, SINGLE LADIES, and TAKE A BOW. Before this, I knew only one song of Rihanna – DON’T STOP THE MUSIC, and I like it a lot. Rihanna seems to be my type of music. I have never heard of Altar and Jeanie Tracy before, but they sound great. They remind me of dance music in the 90’s.

    I hope you will return to DJ Station again and again.

    Talking about IT’S RAINING MEN, I wonder why the music videos of this song by Geri Halliwell and by Martha Wash + RuPaul are so tame compared to the original music video by The Weather Girls. I think some very old music videos, like PHYSICAL (Olivia Newton-John), SO MANY MEN (Miguel Brown), and LOVE IN THE FIRST DEGREE (Bananarama) dare to exploit male bodies much more than music videos in 1990’s. Hahaha.

    IT’S RAINING MEN – The Weather Girls
