more from olivia ong

Completing my previous post about Olivia Ong, a Singaporean made famous in Japan singer, hereby I make a confession. I have completely enchanted by her shooting voice! I just can’t get enough of her and constantly adding her albums to my itunes :pWhat so great about her is maybe more than just the voice. The way she sing them and put her signature in those classic songs is wonderful. Just listen to her once and we’ll get easily recognize her anywhere after.

If earlier i talk about A Girl With Bossanova 2, then Olivia Ong’s A Girl With Bossanova is def a must have. Consist of her cover for many great songs such as “Fly Me To The Moon”, “The Girl From Ipanema”, “Lovefool”, “Where is The Love”, all sang with smooth jazzy vibes. Still my favorite is “Quiet Nights and Quite Stars” as well as “Meditation”. If you ever wanna hear those fab songs in a dreamy relaxing voice, then Olivia Ong might be your angel🙂

Recently I had a hand on Fallin in Love with and yea it is full with her ambiance. “Koi ni Ochite (Fall in love)” , originally sang by Akiko Kobayashi, is my favorite among them. “Foolery” is also bear her natural attraction as “For Your Babies” goes. Tho’ i think she takes “All Out of Love” and “True Colors” a little too slow for my ears,  She sings my all-time -favorite “Close To You” nicely. Also she brings “First of May” to a sweeter taste. Overall I love this album ^o^

This one is from Koi ni Ochite

Moshimo negai ga kanau nara, Toiki wo shiroi bara ni kaete
Aenai hi ni wa heyajuu ni kazarimashou, Anata wo omoinagara

Darling, I want you aitakute. Tokimeku koi ni kakedashi sou na no
Maigo no you ni tachisukumu, Watashi wo sugu ni todoketakute

Daiyaru mawashite te wo tometa
I’m just woman Fall in love

If my wishes can be true Will you change my sighs
To roses, whiter roses. Decorate them for you
Thinkin’ ’bout you every night and find out where I am
I am not livin’ in your heart

Darling, I need you dou shite mo kuchi ni dasenai negai ga aru no yo
Doyou no yoru to nichiyou no anata ga itsumo hoshii kara

Daiyaru mawashite te wo tometa
I’m just woman Fall in love

Darling, you love me ima sugu ni anata no koe ga kikitaku naru no yo
Riyote de hoho wo osaete mo tohou ni kureru yoru ga kirai

Daiyaru mawashite te wo tometa
I’m just a woman Fall in love

Don’t you remember when you were here
Without a thinking we were caught in fire
I’ve got a love song, But where it goes
Three loving hearts are pullin’ apart of one

Can’t stop you, can’t hold you, can’t wait no more
I’m just woman Fall in love
I’m just woman Fall in love

And this one here is my all-time favorite song. Usually i fancy Jheena Lodwick version of Close To You, but Olivia’s Close to You give a lil’ touch to enjoy in the rainy day🙂

Why do birds suddenly appear, ev’ry time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be close to you.
Why do stars fall down from the sky, ev’ry time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be close to you.
* Oh the day that you were born the angels got together.
And decided to create a dream come true.
So, they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold,
And star-light in your eyes of blue.
That is why all the boys in town follow you all around.
Just like me , they long to be close to you…

This song has never failed to make me smile, no matter what the circumstances are…

  1. Olivia has an amazing voice!

    Thanks for posting the lyrics. I always wonder what goes into those Japanese parts. Not that I can understand Japanese. But still, good to “follow” the song … ha ha ha.

    1. Hehe, I love following them too😀
      But if I’m not mistaken, here’s a translate for the Japanese part:

      If wishes can be true
      Turning my sighs into white roses
      Decorate them around the room on a tragical day
      While thinking about you

      Darling, I want you. I wanna meet you
      Just as the first love beat
      I’m petrified like a lost child
      I want you here immediately
      I kept dial your number, then my hand’s confusingly stopped

      I’m just a woman Fall in love
      If my wishes can be true
      Will you change my sighs
      To roses, whiter roses
      Decorate them for you
      Thinkin’ ’bout you every night
      And find out where I am
      I am not Livin’ in your heart

      Darling I need you, absolutely
      There are unspoken wishes
      on Saturday night and Sunday too
      Because i always wanting you
      I kept dial your number, then my hand stopped

      I’m just a woman, Fall in love
      Darling, you love me now immediately
      Your voice was always echoing in my mind
      Although I hold my cheeks with both hands, trying to calm down
      I Hate confusing nights like this
      I kept dial your number, then my hand stopped

      I’m just a woman, Fall in love
      Don’t you remember
      When you were here
      Without a thinking
      We were caught in fire
      I’ve got a love song
      But where it goes
      Three loving hearts are
      Pulling’ apart of one
      Can’t stop you, Can’t hold you
      Can’t wait no more
      I’m just a woman Fall in love
      I’m just a woman Fall in love

      I think it shows what woman feels when fallin’ in love nicely :p
