Girl on Fire Background

Girl on Fire” is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Alicia Keys for her fifth studio album of the same name. Keys co-wrote and co-produced the R&B ballad with Jeff Bhasker and Salaam Remi. The song contains an interpolation of the drums from the 1980 song “The Big Beat” by American rock guitarist Billy Squier, who received a writing credit on “Girl on Fire”. Released on September 4, 2012, as the lead single from the album of the same name, “Girl on Fire” is Keys’ first release under RCA Records following the closure of J Records, after a reorganization at Sony Music Entertainment.

“Girl on Fire” was inspired by Keys’ giving birth to her son Egypt and marriage to husband Swizz Beatz. Keys recorded a three-track suite for the song, consisting of the main version in addition to two remixes. The first remix, titled “Inferno”, adds two new verses from American hip hop artist Nicki Minaj, whilst the second mix titled “Bluelight” strips back the drums and piano leaving a sparse bass-led production and re-recorded “smokey” vocals.

“Girl on Fire” opened to extremely positive reviews from critics, with many praising Keys’ vocals and the song’s production. Keys performed “Girl on Fire” for the first time at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on September 6, 2012, where she was joined by Minaj and American gymnastics gold-medalist Gabby Douglas. The song has sold over 4 million paid downloads in the United States.

Girl on Fire Lyrics

She’s just a girl, and she’s on fire
Hotter than a fantasy, longer like a highway
She’s living in a world, and it’s on fire
Feeling the catastrophe, but she knows she can fly away
Oh, she got both feet on the ground
And she’s burning it down
Oh, she got her head in the clouds
And she’s not backing down
This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She’s walking on fire
This girl is on fire
Looks like a girl, but she’s a flame
So bright, she can burn your eyes
Better look the other way
You can try but you’ll never forget her name
She’s on top of the world
Hottest of the hottest girls say
Oh, we got our feet on the ground
And we’re burning it down
Oh, got our head in the clouds
And we’re not coming down
This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She’s walking on fire
This girl is on fire
Everybody stands, as she goes by
Cause they can see the flame that’s in her eyes
Watch her when she’s lighting up the night
Nobody knows that she’s a lonely girl
And it’s a lonely world
But she gon’ let it burn, baby, burn, baby
This girl is on fire
This girl is on fire
She’s walking on fire
This girl is on fire
Oh, oh, oh,
She’s just a girl, and she’s on fire

 lyrics Music

Main version

“Girl on Fire” is a midtempo song written by Emily Isbell, Jeff Bhasker, Salaam Remi and American rock guitarist Billy Squier.  Squier earns a writing credit for the inclusion of an interpolation of the drums from his 1980 song “The Big Beat”. Composed on the key of A major, “Girl on Fire” uses common time and is set to a “heavy beat” at a tempo of 93 beats per minute.[4] Keys’ vocals range in the song over an octave from a low note of C4 up to a high note of E5. On the main single, Keys opens the songs with the lyrics “She got both feet on the ground and she’s burning it down. She got her head in the clouds and she’s not backing down.

This girl is on fire!” Keys’ lyrics centre around toasting the “achievements of women everywhere”, particularly with the hook “She’s just a girl and she’s on fire”, which according to MTV’s Rob Markman is delivered with a “calming-yet-commanding wail”. Markman also spoke of the pace of the song, describing it as “pulsating”. LA Times Gerrick Kennedy expanded further describing the songs components as “a fierce battlecry over a fast-building simplistic hook”.Critics likened “Girl on Fire” to Keys’ previous singles “No One” (2007) and “Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart” (2009). Throwing “If I Ain’t Got You” (2004) into the list of comparisons, Erin Thompson from Seattle Weekly said “Girl on Fire” compares to previous Keys’ ballads with its “quiet, unassuming verses leading into big, empathic choruses.”

Inferno version

Nicki Minaj is featured on the Inferno version of the song.

The Inferno version features Nicki Minaj, who wrote and rapped two new verses on the song. Minaj’s vocals were recorded at Chalice Recording Studios in Los Angeles, California.The inferno remix uses the same production and sample as the main single however, the first two verses of the song were described as “understated” by Carl Williot from Idolator, with Minaj leading the remix with a new rap verse.She raps “Took me on the balcony, telling me to jump with her/ Yeah I’m in the ghost but I ain’t doing stunts with her/ I ain’t trying to be that, haters want to see that/ But I got ’em aggy, cause I win the gold like Gabby”.

Minaj also talks about being haunted by the ghost of Marilyn Monroe. In the second verse from Minaj, the subject matter switches to her fans the “Barbz” with the lyric “And to my core fans, keep reppin’ me/ Do it till the death of me/ ‘X’ in the box, cause ain’t nobody checkin’ me.” Markman noted that in this verse, Minaj switched her delivery style to “more of a whisper”. Entertainment Weeklys Kyle Anderson described Minaj’s verses as “more prominent” than Keys’ and noted that the production was influenced by garage music.

Bluelight version

By contrast, the Bluelight version features a slower production and re-recorded vocals. According to the Los Angeles Times Gerrick Kennedy, the Bluelight remix has a production based on “dripping” synths and “light” chord progressions. Kennedy particularly noted a difference in Keys’ vocal tone, describing it as “smokey” and comparable to that see on Keys’ 2009 single “Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready)”.

Mark Edward Nero from About.com also compared the “Girl on Fire” to Keys’ single “You Don’t Know My Name” (2003). Idolator’s Carl Williot described how on this stripped version, “gone is Minaj, gone are the piano plinks and gone are the martial drums” completely changing the composition of the Bluelight version. Williot described how Keys’ vocals take on a “more emotional performance” while the melody is replaced with “faint bass drops and a hushed drum machine”.

Live performances

Keys performed “Girl on Fire” for the first time at 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on September 6, 2012, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.She was joined by Nicki Minaj who rapped her verses from the Inferno Remix of the song as well as the 2012 Summer Olympics gymnastics gold medalist Gabby Douglas who performed during the second half of the song. The Team USA female gymnasts performed a brief routine while Keys was introduced to the stage. Keys was dressed in a “pewter-colored top and black form-fitting tights.”Minaj was dressed in a “black hooded top and bright blonde wig”.

During the performance, Keys began stood up at a keyboard before walking down the steps to the main stage. It was only after Minaj rapped the line “But I got ’em aggy, cause I win the gold like Gabby”, Douglas appear on stage with a brief routine containing cartwheels, jumps and back hand springs. American Superstar magazine described the performance a “true TV performance” thanks in part Minaj and Douglas, as well as “Keys hit[ting] many high notes — and then some”.

The magazine concluded that the performance was “sexy, yet intimate”. Jack Antonoff, guitarist of indie band fun., said he thought Keys’ performance could be “that performance that people will be talking about for 10 years”. VH1’s Sabrina Rojas Weiss agreed, stating that it was “just due to Keys’ soaring vocals” but also Douglas’ surprise appearance.

The lyrics to the song were written by Sun Yi (孫儀) and the music was composed by Weng Ching-hsi (翁清溪). It was first sung by Chen Fen-lan (陳芬蘭) in 1972 or 1973 for Chen’s album Dreamland (夢鄉), but was made famous by Teresa Teng’s version later in 1977. Teng’s rendition, which is three minutes and 29 seconds long, was described as a “love song with a waltz-like lilt”.

The Moon Represents My Heart Translated Lyrics

[Chorus]
You ask how deeply I love you
And just how great my love is
My affection is real
And my love is true
The moon represents my heart
You ask how deeply I love you
And just how great my love is
My affection does not waver
And my love doesn’t change
The moon represents my heart

[Verse 1]
So soft was the kiss
That has moved my heart
Such a deep affection
Makes me long for you now

[Chorus]
You ask how deeply I love you
And just how great my love is
Consider this
And look above
The moon represents my heart

[Instrumental Break]

Cultural impact in China

Until the late 1970s, foreign music had not been allowed into mainland China for several decades.“The Moon Represents My Heart” became one of the first popular foreign songs (called “gangtai” songs) in the country.

Teng’s songs over the following decade revolutionized music in China. Her singing, described as “soft, melodious, often whispery and restrained,” was considered the “ideal” in gangtai music at that time. The style was in striking contrast to the then officially sanctioned songs in mainland China which were often revolutionary songs, and made a strong impact on its listeners.She became so popular that “within months the country was literally flooded with [her] songs. “The Moon Represents My Heart”, however, is often cited as one of her best-known or most popular pieces.

Before Teng’s music arrived, such romantic songs had been nonexistent in China for many years as they were considered bourgeois and decadent. As film director Jia Zhangke later said, “‘The Moon Represents My Heart’ [was] something completely new. So people of my generation were suddenly infected with this very personal, individual world. Before that, everything was collective…”

Legacy

Teng died of an asthma attack in 1995, but “The Moon Represents My Heart” has been performed frequently around the world since 21st Century including famous singers and musicians Katherine Jenkins, Shila Amzah, Faye Wong, David Tao, Andy Lau, Leslie Cheung, Jon Bon Jovi, Siti Nurhaliza, David Archuleta, English vocal group Libera and Grammy Award winner American musician Kenny G. The song is considered a “classic,”and according to one source, “Chinese all around the world are familiar with [it].”

“The Moon Represents My Heart” is also popular in karaoke, with one chain in Singapore listing it at #42 on their hits list (which made it the highest ranked of all Teng’s songs). According to The New York Times, it is one of the best-known Chinese pop songs of all time.

Bad Guy Lyrics Eminem

Bad Guy Lyrics Eminem

It’s like I’m in the dirt, digging up old hurt
Tried everything to get my mind off you, it won’t work
All it takes is one song on the radio you’re right back on it
Reminding me all over again how you fucking just brushed me off
And left me so burned, spent a lot of time trying to soul search
Maybe I needed to grow up a little first
Looks like I hit a growth spurt
But I am coming for closure
Don’t suppose an explanation I’m owed for
The way that you turned your back on me
Just when I may have needed you most
Oh, you thought it was over
You can just close the chapter
And go about your life, like it was nothing
You ruined mine, but you seem to be doing fine
I’d never recovered but tonight I betcha that whatcha
‘Bout to go through’s tougher than anything I…,

[Verse 1]
It’s like I’m in this dirt, digging up old hurt
Tried everything to get my mind off you, it won’t work
All it takes is one song on the radio, you’re
Right back on it, reminding me all over again
How you fucking just brushed me off and left me so burnt
Spent a lot of time tryin’ to soul search
Maybe I needed to grow up a little first
Well, looks like I hit a growth spurt
But I’m coming for closure
Don’t suppose an explanation I’m owed, for
The way that you turned your back on me
Just when I may have needed you most
Oh, you thought it was over? You could just close the
Chapter and go about your life like it was nothing?
You ruined mine, but you seem to be doin’ fine
Well, I’ve never recovered
But tonight I bet you that what you’re
‘Bout to go through’s tougher than anything I ever have suffered
Can’t think of a better way to define poetic justice
Can I hold grudges? Mind saying, “Let it go, fuck this.”
Heart’s saying, “I will, once I bury this bitch alive
Hide the shovel and then drive off in the sunset.”

[Chorus: Sarah Jaffe]

Bad Guy Lyrics Eminem

I flee the scene like it was my last ride
You see right through
Oh, you had me pegged the first time
You can see the truth, but it’s easier to justify
What’s bad is good and I hate to be the bad guy
I just hate to be the bad guy

I just hate to be the bad guy

[Verse 2]-Bad Guy Lyrics Eminem
And to think I used to think you was the shit, bitch
To think it was you at one time I worshipped, shit
Think you can hurt people and just keep getting away with it?
Not this time, you better go and get the sewing kit, bitch!
Finish this stitch, so you can reap what you sew, nitwit
Thought some time would pass and I’d forget it? Forget it!
You left our family in shambles
And you expect me to just get over him, pretend he never existed?
May be gone but he’s not forgotten
And don’t think ‘cause he’s been out the pictures
So long that I’ve stopped the plottin’ and still ain’t comin’ to get ya
You’re wrong and that shit was rotten
And the way you played him, same shit you did to me, cold
Have you any idea the shit that I’ve gone through?
Feelings I harbor? All this pent-up resentment I hold on to?
Not once you call to ask me how I’m doin’
Letters, you don’t respond to ’em
Fuck it, I’m coming to see you
And, gee, who better to talk to than you?
The cause of my problems
My life is garbage, and I’m ’bout to take it out on you
Poof, then I’m gone, voosh,….Bad Guy Lyrics Eminem

[Chorus: Sarah Jaffe]-Bad Guy Lyrics Eminem
I flee the scene like it was my last ride
You see right through
Oh, you had me pegged the first time
You can see the truth, but it’s easier to justify

I just hate to be the bad guy
(Follow me, I ruh-uh-un; follow me, I ruh-uh-un)
I just hate to be the bad guy

[Verse 3]-Bad Guy Lyrics Eminem
I’ve been drivin’ around your side of this town
Like 9 frickin’ hours and 45 minutes now
Finally I found your new address, park in your drive
Feel like I’ve been waiting on this moment all of my life
And it’s now arrived, and my mouth is full of saliva
My knife is out and I’m ducking on the side of your house
See, it’s sad it came to this point
Such a disappointment I had to make this appointment
To come and see ya, but I ain’t here for your empathy
I don’t need your apology or your friendship or sympathy
It’s revenge that I seek
So I sneak vengefully, and treat your bedroom window
Like I reached my full potential: I peeked
Continue to peep, still bent low, then keep
Tapping the glass lightly then start to crescendo, sneak
All the way ’round to the back porch
Man, door handles unlocked, shouldn’t be that easy to do this
You don’t plan for intruders beforehand?
Surprised to see me? Cat caught your tongue?
Gag, chloroform rag, dag, almost hack-up a lung
Like you picked an axe up and swung, stick to the core plan
Dragged to the back of a trunk by one of your fans
Irony’s spectacular, huh? Now who’s a faggot, you punk?
And here’s your Bronco hat
You can have that shit back ‘cause they suck
It’s just me, you and the music now, Slim, I hope you hear it
We’re in the car right now – wait, here comes my favorite lyric
“I’m the bad guy who makes fun of people that die”
And hey, here’s a sequel to my
Mathers LP just to try to get people to buy
How’s this for a publicity stunt? This should be fun!
Last album now, ‘cause after this you’ll be officially done
Eminem killed by M and M, Matthew Mitchell
Bitch, I even have your initials
I initially was gonna bury you next to my brother, but fuck it
Since you’re in love with your city so much, I figured, what the fuck
The best place you could be buried alive is right here
Two more exits, time is quite near
Hope we don’t get stopped, no license I fear
That sirens I hear? Guess 90 on the freeway wasn’t the brightest idea, as cops appear in my driver’s side mirror
(Oh, God! Police! Aaaghh!)
Hope Foxtrot gets an aerial shot of your burial plot, at least
New plan, Stan!
Slim: “Chauvinist pig drove in this big Lincoln Town Car”
Well, gotta go, almost at the bridge
Ha ha, big bro, it’s for you; Slim, this is for him
And Frank Ocean; oh, hope you can swim good
Now say you hate homos again!

[Verse 4]-Bad Guy Lyrics Eminem
I also represent
Anyone on the receiving end of those jokes you offend
I’m the nightmare you fell asleep and then woke up still in
I’m your karma closing in with each stroke of a pen
Perfect time to have some remorse to show for your sin
Nope, it’s hopeless, I’m the denial that you’re hopelessly in
When they say all of this is approachin’ its end
But you refuse to believe that it’s over, here we go all over again
Back’s to the wall, I’m stacking up all them odds
Toilets clogged, yeah, ‘cause I’m talking a lot of
Shit but I’m backing it all up
But in my head there’s a voice in the back and it hollers
After the track is demolished, I am your lack of a conscience
I’m the ringing in your ears
I’m the polyps on the back of your tonsils
Eatin’ your vocal chords after your concerts
I’m your time that’s almost up that you haven’t acknowledged
Grab for some water
But I’m that pill that’s too jagged to swallow
I’m the bullies you hate that you became
With every faggot you slaughtered
Coming back on you, every woman you insult
Batter, but the double-standards you have
When it comes to your daughters
I represent everything you take for granted
‘Cause Marshall Mathers, the rapper’s persona
Is half a facade, and Matthew and Stan’s just symbolic
Of you not knowing what you had ’til it’s gone
‘Cause after all the glitz and the glam
No more fans that are calling your name
Cameras are off, sad, but it happens to all of them
I’m the hindsight to say, “I told you so!”
Foreshadows of all the things that are to follow
I’m the future that’s here to show you what happens tomorrow
If you don’t stop after they call ya
Biggest laughing stock of rap who can’t call it quits
When it’s time to walk away, I’m every guilt trip
The baggage you have, but as you gather up all your possessions
If there’s anything you have left to say
‘Less it makes an impact, then don’t bother
So ‘fore you rest your case
Better make sure you’re packin’ a wallop
So, one last time, I’m back
Before it fades into black and it’s all over
Behold the final chapter in a saga
Tryin’ to recapture that lightning trapped in a bottle
Twice, the magic that started
It all, tragic portrait of an artist
Tortured, trapped in his own drawings
Tap into thoughts blacker and darker
Than anything imaginable; here goes a wild stab in the dark
As we pick up where the last Mathers left off,Bad Guy Lyrics Eminem
