Fav Tina track: depends on the mood
Fav line: many lines from Tina's songs are my
favs, among of them are "if it's too easy it never last"
"be anyone you want to be, bring to life your fantasy"
Best Tina moment: receiving programme book of
Tina's In Deep Live Australian Tour and 1999 season
greeting card with her picture.
Longest Tina moment: getting the US version of
Don't Ask (the one with Show Me Heaven). i got the Aussie
version in 1995, got the US version in 1997/1998. in
the track listing there's Show Me Heaven. but when i
played it, the track wasn't there :(
i told sony music about that, and finally i got the
revised album about a month after it.
Best recurring moment: day after day there are
more of my friends who love tina's songs.
Best Tina site: MMM's
Wish of Tina: i can meet her and watch her live
i knew Tina for the 1st time from a radio show in 1995.
it's featuring new releases, and one of them was Don't
Ask. when i heard Chains, it's love at 1st hearing.
it sound so good and so familiar to my ears. i just
not long after that, i saw the video on MTV. WOW, not
just a wonderful and powerful voice, she's also so beautiful.
i have to get the album, i thought. so i bought Don't
Ask and love the songs (i still do). the lyrics are
full of meanings and i'm happy knowing that she co-wrote
most of her songs.
in the cover of Don't Ask was written the address of
Tina Arena Information. i really wanted to know more
about her, so i wrote to that address, twice, but never
got any response :(
i gave up and two years went by, listening to her song
everyday, making my brothers and my friends went crazy
in 1997, i went to a computer exhibition that's connected
to the internet. i was browsing to sony music site and
found up that Tina was going to release a new album.
i was so excited and wondering about the new songs in
the that album. several days after that (i hadn't got
the time to go to record store to check the new album),
the tv was on but i was doing something so i didn't
pay attention to it until i heard a familiar voice.
could it be, i wondered. i ran to the tv and saw her
on a new video (Burn). i recognized the voice but the
look was so different. she's more ... sexy :)
i was sure it's her when i saw the song information
at the end. then i bought the album (In Deep) and the
magic was still there. the voice, the lyrics, and everything.
in the cover there's a new address to get lyric sheet
of the songs and information about Tina. so i tried
again and this time i got response. i was so happy.
i got the lyric sheet, a few cards of Tina, and a form
to join The Arena Chain (Tina Arena Official Fan Club).
i continued to write again and one day i received a
packet. it contained more cards and a programme book
of Tina's In Deep Live Australian Tour. Bernadette,
who replied my letter, said that Tina asked her to pass
it to me. i can't describe my excitement.
and then several days after 1999 new year, i received
a season greeting card with Tina's picture, saying :
"here's lookin' at you kid...
merry christmas and a happy '99
(with Tina's autograph although i think it's printed
so, with all of that, how can i not love her ?
