Another Fun Song To Learn English From: Take Me RMX by Tiësto

I thought I'd pass along this remix by Tiësto to everyone since the vocals are really clear and the lyrics are also displayed in the music video. That means it is perfect to sing along to. This song is chock full of complete sentences, questions, and subordinate clauses too. By the way, Tiësto is a DJ from the Netherlands. I've been listening to his stuff since before 2000.

 

A lot of people on here seem to have questions about wanna, 'cause, 'cos, etc. Guess what? Wanna and 'cause appear in this song. :) Of course, these are slang words so they shouldn't be used in writing essays or in formal settings like taking an interview. They are safe to use with close friends and in the context of a dance song like this which is meant to be fun and not uptight anyhow. :)

 

Anyways, have you ever been with someone you love who feels like their life is standing still, and so this person feels that they must take off to some far away place to chase after their dreams  before time is up? That is the setting of this song, and the vocalist is begging/asking this person to let her come with them on their journey so they can remain together... because she can not bear being "alone tonight." So sad, huh? This song kind of makes me wonder where my own relationship is going to lead to... I'm hoping for the best. Wish me luck! :)

Waiting for the light to change from red,
Thinking over all the things you said to me...
You said to me...
All your dreams are dying in the sun.
Pretty soon there'll be nowhere left to run away...
To run away.

 

You packed your bags to leave by the morning,
Destination far off and foreign...
It's never or now!
It's never or now!

 

Baby, won't you take me?
Baby, won't you take me with you?
With you!
Baby, won't you take me?
Baby, won't you take me with you?
With you!
'Cause I don't wanna be alone tonight!
I don't wanna be alone tonight!
Baby, won't you take me?
Baby, won't you take me with you?
With you!

 

Memories of a life I leave behind...
Take a souvenir to remind me of
The ones that I love!

 

Feel my heart! It beats like a stopwatch!
Running out of time with each tick tock...
It's never or now!
It's never or now!

 

Baby, won't you take me?
Baby, won't you take me with you?
With you!
Baby, won't you take me?
Baby, won't you take me with you?
With you!
'Cause I don't wanna be alone tonight!
I don't wanna be alone tonight!
Baby, won't you take me?
Baby, won't you take me with you?
With you!

I didn't say I hated it ! :-]  Cheesy pop/edm is okay in moderation. Even so, everytime I see "Britney Spears ft. Tiesto" or w/e I cringe. Its a bit like a world all-star playing in the local little league.


OTOH, progressive trance is quite nice and it fills up the void.. :)

Two awesome tracks that come to mind : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CS0tkW6DUZU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bu0_9ij-IZM

 

As for Skrillex, the less said the better :D Hes like those annoying unskippable 30 second youtube commercials.

Hi Shawn,

Just now I have listened to this song, I liked it. But it’s not that original by means of improvisation. What do you think of Cirez D? I’m more of a Ferry Costen sound alike lover , for lack of a better term :).

The lyrics are great. I like how she's pronouncing the word “with” therein it’s soft and sweet. Seems to me that guys speak out this word a little differently more hard and more emphasis on the 't', I guess I do "th" sounds with too much airpressure. What do you think?
