Within Temptation - Biography Within Temptation got founded in 1996. Robert Westerholt, who had already found a singer (his girlfriend Sharon den Adel), started the band. In less than two months, they had been offered various contracts for a record deal. WT decided to sign with DSFA Records and things got started.

After signing to DSFA, things got rolling. The first album, "Enter", was released in April 1997 and soon after that, WT already played Dynamo 1997. It was their fifth gig ever... After playing on Dynamo they got asked for quite a lot of other gigs and at the end of 1997 (November) they even did a two-week tour through Germany and Austria. Some other pretty big gigs followed, including Noorderslag. And Dynamo 1998 of course, where WT played the main stage, after playing the campsite in 1997. Around the time that they played this gig at Dynamo, they also released an EP called "The Dance". This was supposed to serve as a small treat to span the gap between Enter and a new record.

In 1999 WT decided to take things slow. After two years of performing and far too less breaks, they needed some time for themselves. So nothing really exciting happened except they finished their studies and their own studio became reality.

2000 turned out to be the year of major changes. The band received invitations to play at the major festivals in the Benelux countries. In December of this year the cd Mother Earth was released. Many Dutch professional music magazines voted this cd as their cd-of-the-month. Various album charts were topped and the number of fans increased heavily.
In 2001 Within Temptation did a lot of touring, both inside- and outside of The Netherlands. Besides a club tour of 40 ‘sold-out’ concert halls, many festivals concerts were done. One of the highlights was a concert at the famous Pinkpop festival (100.000 visitors). Also concerts in Paris, Mexico-City and at Belgium Festivals were given. 2 cd-singles were released, Our Farewell and Ice Queen. 2002 became the year of the mass-breakthrough. The single Ice Queen reached the number 1 position in may charts, both in The Netherlands and in Belgium. The Album Mother Earth reached the Platinum status in The Netherlands and the Gold status in Belgium. In both countries TMF/MTV Awards were achieved. The band played at the major Festivals in the Benelux (Ozzfest, Lowlands, Dynamo, Rock Werchter, Pukkelpop, Parkpop), as well as in Germany (Rock im Park, Bizarre, Summerbreeze). In France Within Temptation toured the major cities (Paris, Lyon, Lille, Bordeaux, Toulon) with sold-out venues. Besides Robert Westerholt (guitar) and Sharon den Adel (singer), Within Temptation consists of: Jeroen van Veen (bass guitar), Martijn Spierenburg (keyboards), Stephen van Haestregt (drums) and Ruud Jolie (guitar).

Baz Lurhman - Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)

I saw this amazing video several years ago and I love it on the first time. Just listen very carefull to the amazing lyric. A friend sent me a link to this video in another site and I wanted to show the world this unbelieveble lyric. You can see below 2 videos, the original and one with subtitles in portuguese and below you can see all the lyric.
Just one more thing this video was made in 1999 and this "Baz Lurhman" is also the Writer and Director of the amazing movie "Moulin Rouge" with Nikole Kidman and Ewan McGregor of 2001.

Baz Lurhman - Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) (Deluxe) (5:04)

Baz Luhrmann - Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen) (Subtitles in Portuguese) (7:08)

Hope you will love this awsome lyric.

Baz Luhrmann - Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)

Ladies and gentlemen of the class of '99: Wear sunscreen.

If I could offer you only one tip for the future,
Sunscreen would be it.
The long term benefits of sunscreen have been probed by scientists,
Whereas the rest of my advice has no basis
More reliable than my own meandering experience.
I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth.
Oh, never mind.
You will not understand the power and beauty of your youth
Until they've faded.
But trust me, in 20 years,
You'll look back at photos of yourself and recall
In a way you can't grasp now how much possibility
Lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.
You are not as fat as you can imagine.

Don't worry about the future.
Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective
As trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum.
The real troubles in your life are apt to be
Things that never crossed your worried mind,
The kind that blind side you at 4 pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing every day that scares you.


Don't be reckless with other people's hearts.
Don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.


Don't waste your time on jealousy.
Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.
The race is long and, in the end, it's only with yourself.

Remember compliments you receive.
Forget the insults.
If you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters.
Throw away your old bank statements.


Don't feel guilty if you don't know what to do with your life.
The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22
What they wanted to do with their lives.
Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don't know.

Get plenty of calcium.
Be kind to your knees.
You'll miss them when they're gone.

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't.
Maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't.
Maybe you'll divorce at 40,
Maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary.
Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much,
Or berate yourself either.
Your choices are half chance.
So are everybody else's.

Enjoy your body.
Use it every way you can.
Don't be afraid of it or of what other people think of it.
It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.

Dance, even if you have nowhere to do it but your living room.

Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.

Do not read beauty magazines.
They will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents.
You never know when they'll be gone for good.
Be nice to your siblings.
They're your best link to your past
And the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go,
But with a precious few you should hold on.
Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle,
Because the older you get,
The more you need the people who knew you when you were young.

Live in New York City once,
But leave before it makes you hard.
Live in Northern California once,
But leave before it makes you soft.


Accept certain inalienable truths:
Prices will rise.
Politicians will philander.
You, too, will get old.
And then you do you'll fantasize that when you were young,
Prices were reasonable,
Politicians were noble,
And children respected their elders.
Respect your elders.

Don't expect anyone else to support you.
Maybe you have a trust fund.
Maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse.
But you never know when either one might run out.

Don't mess too much with your hair
Or by the time you're 40 it will look like 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy,
But be patient with those who supply it.

Advice is a form of nostalgia.
Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal,
Wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts
And recycling it for more that it's worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen.

U2 - Window In The Skies

Hi everyone, this is the new lyric of U2 that will be released this month (January 2007).
The lyric is awsome, the music is amazing and it has 2 awsome videos. One of the videos shows the story of U2 in photos (U2 Clip Version) and the other video shows many old and new solo artists and bands singing the new song (you have to check it out).
This new 2 videos are on the official U2 site:

U2 // Window In The Skies

The shackles are undone
The bullets quit the gun
The heat that’s in the sun
Will keep us when there’s none
The rule has been disproved
The stone it has been moved
The grave is now a groove
All debts are removed

Oh can’t you see what love has done?
Oh can’t you see what love has done?
Oh can’t you see what love has done?
What it’s done to me?

Love makes strange enemies
Makes love where love may please
The soul and its striptease
Hate brought to its knees
The sky over our head
We can reach it from our bed
You let me in your heart
And out of my head, head…

Oh can’t you see what love has done?
Oh can’t you see what love has done?
Oh can’t you see what love has done?
What it’s done to me?

Oh, oh, oh, oh…
Oh, oh, oh, oh…
Please don’t ever let me out of you

I’ve got no shame, oh no, oh no

Oh can’t you see what love has done?
Oh can’t you see?
Oh can’t you see what love has done?
What it’s doing to me?

I know I hurt you and I made you cry
Did everything but murder you and I
But love left a window in the skies
And to love I rhapsodize
To every broken heart
For every heart that cries
Love left a window in the skies
And to love I rhapsodize

U2: "Window in the Skies"
By John Lucas
Publish Date: December 21, 2006

Is it just me, or is U2's new video (see below) downright offensive?

It's one thing to use footage of artists such as Jay-Z, the White Stripes, Elvis Costello, Flavor Flav, Morrissey, et al. They're all alive and can consent to such a use of their images. But the use of dead icons smacks of exploitation, and the assumption that the likes of Kurt Cobain, Frank Zappa, Joe Strummer, Bob Marley, Elvis Presley, and Frank Sinatra would agree to appear in a U2 video... well, that's just hubris. Maybe they'd agree to it, and maybe they wouldn't, but they obviously had no choice in the matter.

Well, I guess Bono himself sums it up best in the song's lyrics: "I've got no shame."
