Hi! I wanted to share with you our first demo song in english! It's a song from our first album "bi-polar" originally called "Algo quedará". I would like to receive you opinions about the language and pronunciation (and about everything!).

Attached File  Something_will_remain__Cirse_.mp3 ( 6.88MB ) Number of downloads: 405


Thank you!

This is the lyric of the song:

Something will remain


Come close to me, astonish me, be slow and quiet
Come close to me, and always whisper in my ear.
And tell me it is true.


It is said that the unconscious is so endless
Reality is everything that you set going
I want to hear you...


No one could get in, killing all my distress
Leaving behind all my strong will, something will remain.



Well now tell me what I should do, oh my free spirit
Show me that place, that holy place, where we shall be together.


No one could get in, killing all my distress
Leaving behind all my strong will, something will remain.



Why are you unfair to me, and leave me to be lost and lonely?
Please talk to me, please give me your warm love.


No one could get in, killing all my distress
Leaving behind all my strong will, something will remain.

if thats luisana(it sounds like its her) singing, her accent is flawless, and i can connecnt much more to the song when i udnerstand the lyrics, its very very good. would make a very succesfull single in my opinion, very mainstream compared to other things i heard.
is it ok if i put it on my mp3 player?

The word "ear" was sang in a way that made me think "hmmm something can be not right", and besides that some words in the :

It is said that the unconscious is so endless
Reality is everything that you set going
I want to hear you...

sounded pronounced quite strange, after that everything was sang in a way that sounded proper, of course I don't have to mention that Lucianas voice and singing skill are great, and it all in all this song really sound great in english version.

Awesome. I always prefer lyrics in English (and I'm Spanish), so pretty cool song. I specially like the chorus, it has an Evanescence scent to it.

Thanks a lot for the feedback! We really need this! I also had the same sensation with the word "ear".
What words of the verse sound strage? or you mean the whole phrases?

Thank you Fran! yes, this is one of our oldest songs (we did it in 2003). When we started we where more gothic/new metal, so that why this song sounds more like Evanescence and Lacuna Coil.

Wow, sounds great in English - Luci, your singing is as always awesome, and I would honestly not know you weren't a native English speaker, your accent is superb!

I think this is a great way to spread the reach of Cirse - I bought the original album, I would buy it again if there was a full English version!

Hehe now we are talking laugh.gif I love this album, but still I must agree that the fact that I now understand what you are saying definitely raises the song to an even higher level.

I guess there are some places where pronunciation could be improved - but I think this level of English is already enough to convince an international audience (don't forget this comes from a Swede! rolleyes.gif )

You talked about this some while ago, and I've been waiting ever since!
I love the english version smile.gif
I can't say much about the language and phrases, as English is not my native language either..
But Lucianas pronunciation is superb smile.gif

Great work!!!
I'll definitely buy the english version if you release one smile.gif

I love it Gab !!! I wouldn't mind with the small accents I think it adds to the song. I heard some song in english where the spanish accents was way more audible.

Gabriel, I can't exactly say what I have in mind, just that the part "It is said that the unconscious" sounds bit unnatural to me, still don't know how to change it, to still fit the great sounding " is so endless" part that comes after it. Hope it helps a bit, Cirse is a great band:)

Thanks a lot Andrew! smile.gif That's our idea. Making music in Argentina is very difficult and we always feel the language barrier to reach audience from other countries.

Thank you Marek. This really helps. We will review that part. I think that we need an english speaker pronouncing that part.
