Sad song with sad graphics of Fedralita

[ Warning : to see the video in this post,
we recommend you not to be unhappy in love affairs. ]

Yes, of course,  
for Fedralita,  I have some scruples
about doing this video with her sad graphics characters.

But there are allways flowers in a cemetery !
And when the light is shining, 
You can have another feeling ( ...are you sure Captain ?... )

Now that Fedralita is in a spring time,
Now that it's Sun Day for her,
She can sing a sad song without tears,
She can see her own dark graphics without sorry.

Here is a beautiful sad song,
With beautiful sad lyrics,
And beautiful sad graphics, 
Only for happy people !

What have I got to do to make you love me
What have I got to do to make you care
What do I do when lightning strikes me
And I wake to find that you're not there
What do I do to make you want me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I say when it's all over
And sorry seems to be the hardest word
It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd
It's sad, so sad
Why can't we talk it over
Oh it seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word
What do I do to make you love me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I do when lightning strikes me
What have I got to do
What have I got to do
When sorry seems to be the hardest word

Fisolen (Φασόλια) - Βαγγέλης Ευαγγελίου & Fedralita

I found this nice video on YouTube.
The title is writen in mathematical and esoteric language.
 But if you trust in Google translation, it says :
Fisolen (Beans) - Vangelis Gospel & Fedralita

For the lyrics of the video, 
I suppose that only the sons of  Zeus
 can understand ... 

So I re-write the lyrics of the video 
with a psalm of my Bible.

Psalm 139

You know my sitting down and my rising up. 
You perceive my thoughts from afar.
You search out my path and my lying down, 
and are acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word on my tongue, but, behold, O Lord, 
you know it altogether.
You hem me in behind and before. 
You laid your hand on me.
This knowledge is beyond me. 
It's lofty. I can't attain it.
Even the darkness doesn't hide from you, 
but the night shines as the day. 
The darkness is like light to you.

For you formed my inmost being. 
You knit me together in my mother's womb.

I will give thanks to you, 
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made !.
Your works are wonderful !
My soul knows that very well !

My frame wasn't hidden from you, 
when I was made in secret, 
woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my body. 

In your book they were all written, 
the days that were ordained for me, 
when as yet there were none of them.

How precious to me are your thoughts, God! 
How vast is the sum of them!
If I would count them, they are more in number than the sand. 
When I wake up, I am still with you.

My Beautiful People

I have a lunch together with the people of my church.
It's also an opportunity for me to take photo with my new little big camera, a Panasonic GF1.
Until then Sephora, my daughter, uses the most my new camera !

I like the Panasonic colour. Because it's film-like.
The pictures are not bad as they are shot in indoor.
They are much more satisfying than my little compact Panasonic LX1.
However there's allways noises trouble with Panasonic.

Panasonic Firm is vey inventive.
It's the first that use stabilizing for a wide public.
It's the first that create a compact Reflex ( 4/3 format ).
They have a brilliant marketing idea :
bring together Leica lens with their electronics.
With the famous Leica brand in, the reputation is immediately done.
For some few years before, Panasonic does not exist at all in the camera market.
Now their cameras are the most sold in France.

See my beautiful friends at my church
Some pictures are luminous by Picasa.

Tunisia my Love

From 04/17 to 04/24 I'll be in Tunisia 
meeting my family coming from Australia, USA, France.
Tunisia is like my homeland. 
I lived there with all my family for 7 years.
We had a very pleasant life.
It was war time in VietNam.
But for us, it was a peaceful time in Tunisia.
My dad was diplomate.
 He always took me with him for going shooting or playing card

( Elvis I love you )

Long after this endless summer has gone 
I'll be lonely oh so lonely 
Living only to remember you 

I'll remember too 
Your voice as soft as the warm summer breeze 
Your sweet laughter, mornings after 
Ever after, I'll remember you 

To your arms someday I'll return to stay 
Till then I will remember too 
Every bright start we made wishes upon 
Love me always, promise always 
Oooh, you'll remember too ways"

Birds of Fedralita.

Graphic of Fedralita

Saw you flying by
Flash of Turquoise Blue
I just had to try
To keep your life in view 

My bird of paradise
Sweet bird of paradise 

Wish that I could fly
I'd be beside you now
But I can only sigh
And watch you circle round 

My bird of paradise
Sweet bird of paradise
My bird of paradise
Sweet bird of paradise
My bird of paradise 

So you fly away
When will you come again
So I can watch you play 
In the pouring rain 

My bird of paradise
Sweet bird of paradise
My bird of paradise
Sweet bird of paradise
My bird of paradise

Sha la la Air Best-Off

When I was born, the radio was very happy to send me his love songs !

The latest posts
The most me

Mascot song

I often come back
I always have private strong emotions

The most visual

The most mocker (kindly)

The most violent
The most charming ??

The most sumptous (music)

The most oldies

Breathtaking ( music )

So insistent

So French

Simple but Great

The most Summer atmospheric music

The most Jazz

Because of the title this post is the most hit

The most VN

The most tragic

The most cordially detest
publication forbidden :)


There a lot of Fedralita's graphics in your Blog.
Is Fedralita your Muse ?
Yes she is. But only for Shalala Air Blog.
Mr TRAN himself is fan of God, JC and the Bible.

Acting as fan of Fedralita, Shalala Air Blog has a little air of comedy, freak, teenager losing his tyre and crash but still enthusiastic and fervent, ...
I don't know if Fedralita appreciates that style of play-acting.

For the visitors, inspite of a lot of posts, she remains so silent and never comments on.
You can interpret that as a disapproval or an indifference ?
Surely, most probably or may be. I don't know.
Sometime people talks about you, but you want to stay/hide in your shell.
I don't always pick up the ringing phone.

Also, probably,  it's not always easy for her to see her graphic in a sweet and sour sauce, a pepper sauce or a ketchup sauce ... of Shalala Air.
May be she just likes a béchamel or a madeira sauce...

I only have a deal with her saying that she can say stop at any moment.
Personally I think that she has some confidence in me.
And I see that she is still my Follower.

Niki Lauda, a famous Word Formula One Champion, said to his son, a bad driver :
"You damage my name !"
Just hope that I don't damage the trademark Fedralita.
It's a simple and pretty name, and it's single in the www.
It's remarkable for that.
So I can write some joke on her graphics in my Shalala Air Blog.
But I say nothing when I post a video on Youtube.

Also you can only see the beauty of her graphics, and how Fedralita is gifted and talented, only if you see her graphics in full screen.
So Shalala Air Blog format is not a suitable place to look at.

How long does Shalala Air last ?
As long as I could find songs that could fit Fedralita graphic.
( with 1 graphic by week. I'll soon be KO )
As long as I could find some beautiful tunes.
As long as I'm not boring about bloging with music.

Shalala Air is not essential.
It is also very confidential and personal.

It's just like a perfume or a breeze.
It communicates some emotions with the song, tune, music.
It communicates some colors & shapes with some photos or the graphics of Fedralita.
It communicates some feelings with the lyrics and sometime my comments.
But a Shalala Air post is like an ice cream.
It's very good but it only lasts a moment.

I would like to start another blog.
Much more ambitious by the content.
I don't know if I'm able to do that.
I'm thinking about.
I'm not a writer.
It's not easy for me.
It's a real challenge.
It will be my true will.

How do you select your songs ?
I'm not musician.
So I just take the songs with a pleasant tune.
There are not so many.
And I can use only Youtube/Dailymotion.
The sound quality is poor.
I can't use other streaming music like Deezer,Spotify,Jiwa ... because of the geoblocking system.

I also regret that a beautiful melody often has sad lyrics about separation, unsuccessful love affairs, dissatisfaction, ... But it belongs to the cruelty of the human life ...
Shalala Air Blog can't escape from that.
I put the separation in "violence" category although the melody is sometime sublime.
