I’ll be your dream, I’ll be your wish, I’ll be your fantasy
I’ll be your hope, I’ll be your love, be everything that you need
I love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do
I will be strong, I will be faithful, cause I’m counting on
A new beginning
A reason for living
A deeper meaning
I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me
And when the stars are shining brightly in the velvet sky
I’ll make a wish send it to heaven then make you want to cry
The tears of joy for all the pleasure in the certainty
That we’re surrounded by the comfort and protection of
The highest powers
In lonely hours
The tears devour you
Oh can’t you see it baby?
You don’t have to close your eyes
Cause it’s standing right here before you
Sang by Savage Garden, one of my all time favourite bands. I fell in love with this song once again after listening to the remake by Cascada from her “Everytime We Touch” album (track # 10). Cascada rocks!

Location: German Club, Gulshan 2, Dhaka
Time: 20:45 onwards
State of mind: Content
German band Lychee Lassi started playing in 1998 and made a name for themselves with their debut EP Speed, which came out in 2000 and was named “Record of the Month” by TIP Magazine. They have gone on to play gigs all over Europe at clubs, open-airs, and festivals, and tonight they played in front of a live audience in Bangladesh for the first time. I really had a good time at this electronica-jazz fusion concert, and so did my friend Rafiq who accompanied me.
Due to stupid government regulation the bar at the club was closed, so we opted for Pepsi and Fanta. It’s getting relatively harder to get alcoholic beverages in Bangladesh… the scenario is pretty ugly.
Anyways, here’s the line-up of Lychee Lassi: Dirk Berger on guitar, Beat Halberschmidt on bass, Roland “Roy” Knauf on drums, and DJ Illvibe on turntables. They are flying to India tomorrow to perform at Egmore, Chennai, so good luck to them!

“Worldwide trance community tuned in and locked into frequency…
Stand by for the latest in trance and progressive,
broadcasting across the planet to over thirty countries…
This is a state of trance with Armin van Buuren.”
I just fell in love with Armin van Buuren after listening to episode # 320 of his radio show A State of Trance. He plays exactly the type of trance I listen to, and I loved his extraordinary remixes. This Dutch DJ is no less talented than Tiesto or Paul Van Dyke… no wonder his world ranking is # 3 according to The DJ List!

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain
Telling me just what a fool I’ve been
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
And let me be alone again.
The only girl I care about has gone away
Lookin’ for a brand new start
But little does she know that when she left that day
Along with her she took my heart.
Rain please tell me now does that seem fair
For her to steal my heart away when she don’t care
I can’t love another when my heart’s somewhere far away.
