I live in Australia and I found MJ's quote... It's the actual audio sample of the song that I (and other non-US residents) can't access... Which dosen't bother me anyway...

Here is my turn!:)
the love with this crazy passion next to you awoke I discover what is to love making the love

I can tell you it comes from a Celine Dion song and I won't be surprised if nobody can find it using google...:!:

However, if you're smart enough, you can find the name of this song, no matter you're from Australia, Canada, Mexico, Spain, UK, US, etc...

Sorry udosuk, you cannot escape the googleshark - not even when you send out the decoy babelfish.:D

Se despertaba el amor
con esta loca pasión
junto a ti descubro lo que es
Amar haciendo el amor


Love is awaking
With this crazy passion
I'm joining you to discover what it is
To Love While Making Love


Now I need to make my Christmas cake, and I’ll try to think of a suitable quote while I’m stirring the mixture - it might be something spicy and fruity:D

Well done emm!

I wonder would google be useful if I didn't give out the reference about Mexico & Spain, and/or specifying it as a Celine Dion song...

Okay now it's your turn for the next one...:)

I suspected from the above that it might be in a different language, but didn't have the time to babelfish it.

So while emm comes up with a quote she can try this recipe from "The vegetarian/vegan Society of Queensland" site.

Spicy Fruity Pumpkin Muffins Recipe

Vegan - Yes
Vegetarian - Yes
Category - Cakes and Desserts
Serves 8

My quote comes from babelfish's translation from the original Spanish text to English, but if you input the whole text and translate it from English to Spanish you won't get the original text...

I can't see how people who aren't familiar of the Spanish language and/or Celine Dion songs can find the answer using babelfish and google alone?

emm, are you a Celine Dion fan by accident? A Spanish speaker?

That's not very hard, my first search: "with this crazy passion" + celine gave 54 results, all of which refer to the particular song! How often does that happen in google...

I never took you for such a romantic udosuk!! Unfortunately RW is right - it googled

This spicy one you will also find in a googlesec

Our days will be so ecstatic
Our nights will be so exotic
For I'm a neurotic erratic
And you're an erratic erotic


But the fruity one hopefully not - it's by A. Non but to which fruit does it refer?

It has the perfume of a loved woman and the same hardness of heart, but it has the colour of the impassioned and scrawny lover


Might be tasty in MCC's spicy fruity muffins:D

Doh... Now I understand how MCC felt when I told him his quote could be googled easily... I really shouldn't have given the Artist's name so easily...

Next time perhaps I should get a Chinese song and translate it to English and see if you guys can google it up...:)

Musical interlude

If I had you
What in the world could be better
Crazy love that waits for you
Why should it wait for ever

If I had you
Key to a hidden treasure
A ruby heart that hides from view
Don't hide for long


PS: Bic needs no translation - she won NZ top album, top female vocalist this year. And she’s beautiful - though personally I prefer the dishy guitarist.:D

Poetical interlude (spawned by the image of an impassioned scrawny lover)

There was a young man who was scrawny
More brainy than beefy and brawny
His passion was hot
But rhyme I will not
With a word that is tacky and corny

Decidedly much more prawny


Talking of a girl named after a biro - Bic Runga, it's the first time I've heard of her and after listening to her on the web link you posted and liking what I heard, I've ordered her first two albums.

Re your quote, you said we could find it in a googlesec, so far no luck:( I think a googleyear is more like it.
Could "googleyear" be shortened to "googley":?::D

It's nice that emm talked about Bic Runga, who is also an artist I like, as I've bought her first album "Drive" 8/9 years ago...

Interestingly, I found it a bit of coincidental that she has a Chinese-Malaysian mum, same as me...:!:

Regarding the quote, you can find it in 0.5 googlesec if you put in the correct line, barring the first word...:idea:

I had tried googling the whole quote and also the individual lines and I got nothing, the first line now works fine, why? I don't know.
It seems google only lets me have the right answer once it has been found by others.

The answer to emm's quote is:

"Gentleman's Black Book on Dating and Romance".

Before googling this quote try and guess what language it is in what familiar title it is given.

Nesika papa klaksta mitlite kopa saghalie, kloshe kopa nesika
tumtum mika nem; kloshe mika tyee kopa konaway tilikum;
kloshe mika tumtum kopa illahie, kahkwa kopa saghalie. Potlatch
konaway sun nesika muckamuck. Spose nesika mamook masahchie,
wake mika hyas solleks, pe spose klaksta masahchie kopa
nesika, wake nesika solleks kopa klaska. Mahsh siah kopa
nesaika konaway masahchie.
Kloshe kahkwa.
