Today, I will talk about about my another childhood crush. Behold, I still have plenty of crush to tell you. Ladies (and gentleman?), meet The Moffatts *. Actually, if I recall my memory, I just noticed that I like them first before Westlife *. But, I was younger when I know them. So, I not really into them. Though, I have to admit that I sometimes (trust me, just sometime) made story about me and them in my mind. Wasn’t it cute, imagine 4 cute brothers into you? Okay, let’s not talk more about that. They are not as popular as other boyband in that time. They not just singing, they play instruments, too. They came to Indonesia maybe 15 years ago, but of course I can’t attend their show or whatever it was, I was too young.
How I met : I’ll Be There For You *
I can’t help but keep singing “Na..na..na..” even while I write this. I love their cute voice. Look how lovely their face! Cute, play music, what else you looking for, girls? This song also reminds me of “F.R.I.E.N.D.S” theme song. Same title, same point, both are fun. I can’t decide which one is better and I hope you not ask me to.
My favourite songs:
1. If Life is So Short *
Actually, I like the whole lyrics. Can I just put the full text here? Okay..
Isn’t it funny how time seems to slip away so fast
One minute you’re happy, the other you’re sad
But if you give me one more chance
to show my love for you is true
I’ll stand by your side, your whole life through
If life is so short
Why won’t you let me love you
Before we run out of time
If love is so strong
Why won’t you take a chance
Before our time has gone
Love is a word that explains how I feel for you
And when you’re in my arms, all my dreams come true
And when you’re not around, you can’t hardly see
These tears that I’m crying now are for you to be with me
I love this song since the very start. I know the meaning from the magazine that my sister bought, explain what is this song meaning. I feel like they inspire me, to cherish my life. And now, while listening this song, I feel like I need to talk to someone 😉
2. Miss You Like Crazy *
Fun Fact. I like this song cause it ensure me, I have feeling to some boy. But now, I can’t even remember who was that boy. Not sure if I was naive, stupid, or totally drama queen.
Other fun fact, me and my cousin, thought this song was an insult to a lady. I thought they was saying, “Miss, you like crazy.” I read article about this song, and laugh with my cousin. It wrote the translation also in Bahasa, “Sangat merindukanmu.” We laugh even harder, we made our own stories about that. Yeah, I know. Please apologize me.
My favourite part:
“I used to call you the love, the love that I never had..
you are all that I want
you’re all that I need..
can’t you see how I feel?
can’t you see that my pain so real?”
3. If You Only Knew *
It was their project, collaborate with Gil, their mate. I like this song, though it was like only Gil that sing. But, you have to listen.
“Now that I know that I have no chance
To make you mine
But if I run the world, would you be my girl?
How could you be so blind?
I’m going out of my mind
All the time, for you
Yes, it’s true
If you only knew, that I’m crazy for you..”
My favourite one:
Sorry, but I can’t decide 😦 I like them, firstly Dave at the most. Then, Bob. And, Clint. And, Scott. They are brothers. Same aura, I think?
I only found the ‘now’ Bob and Clint. They have new band, Like Strangers. I think they just want to make ‘refreshment’ after Same Same not work well.
You can visit them here : Like Strangers *
Or for old time sake: The Moffatts *
Follow Clint at twitter: @ClintMoffatt *
Follow Bob at twitter: @Bob_Moffatt *
It was pity that they not together anymore. I like their music, their songs, their cuteness.
I like their second album, but however, I’m hopeless romantic. I prefer the mellow one 😉
Ah, I just find out that some Indonesian fans was about to make tribute to The Moffatts but they not achieve their goal. Maybe it was just not publicize well, cause I do believe The Moffatts always have place in their fans heart 😉
