Just popped in to check on the visitors who have visited my site for the day, and clicked on an old post that one virtual visitor from the US had visited: ‘Another Heartwarming OT, an aspiration & inspiration – Somewhere Out There’ ; only to realise that the youtube video wasn’t available anymore. Wonder what had happend to it? Anyway, it said the video had infringed some copyright rules and was taken off… Some killjoy, but I really love both the song and the cartoon even till today. It has left such a fine impression on me since then. The pure, pristine, innocent lyrics sung in the most idealistic, cute & utterly adorable way. I could almost feel I’m 5 again :
Somewhere out there,
beneath the pale moonlight,
someone’s thinking of me and loving me tonight.
Ty: Somewhere out there,
someone’s saying a prayer,
that we’ll find one another in that big somewhere out there.
(*)Ty: And even though I know how very far apart we are,
it helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star.
Fv: And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby,
it helps to think we’re sleeping underneath the same big sky.
Together: Somewhere out there,
if love can see us through,
then we’ll be together, somewhere out there,
out where dreams come true.
*note on 13 Feb 2011 — don’t really know why the American Tail Version of ‘Somewhere Out There’ has a problem of sharing content on blogs, but I think I should just give it up. So just enjoy Maher’s version of the same song. Her maiden performance at a national competition is still the best.
2011 has come & really people should learn a couple of lessons from this song. It’s a sort of hope and faith that everyone out there has a someone out there to share their lives in a meaningful way. More than often, bad things happen because certain ill-meaning thoughts sunk into their minds to committ crime, injustice to another being because they think they are excluded from the love, passion and compassion from their peers/world around them.
The idea of negative thought such as terrorism, murder and such ills are resulted from the fundamental loss of love.
The basis of happiness is to feel cherished. And the way I see the world is that people who bore a simple outlook of life with content usually are far happier than those who linger in the realms of complexity — the kind that eats one up where material greed is concerned. You can almost identify one when you meet it because the years of experience seeing different kinds of people etc everyday that has sharpened your senses. Well I suppose many could identify this..
Anyway, on a bright note, I’ve found another super video from this 4 year old kid (then in 2008) who sounds exactly like a brilliant star that shines. She was way better than any adult singing the same song because of her angelic voice. Her innocent, cheerful & extremely loving open demeanour attracts your attention. So here it is Kaitlyn Maher on ‘Somewhere Out There’ :
I think she is a very confident & mature singer. Being an extremely patriotic & very impressive American, she also seems to be extremely bright. I would think she’d make a brilliant inspiring American leader if she would keep her given nature unchanged. What I’ve found it interesting was that there were two British judges on the panel. Wonder where was the competition held? Her later performance, such as the one done when she was 5, singing Ave Maria, was somewhat polished up to a commercial-like level, which I do not prefer. I still favour the one above — its simply crystal & priceless!
Enjoy! And may 2011 would be a far better year sans the natural disasters that we have seen; with more people learning the way of life that health, wealth and prosperity is simply based on content and recognising that money is not the sole religion of the 21st century — its a poison that kills a sustainable and happy life.
Hope I’ve made sense. — Karen Fu
