sharing a memory

When i was about 13-14 years old - it was the most popular band in Russia - Ace of Base.
Everyone knew their songs, no matter if they spoke english or didnt... i didnt... neither of my friends did.. we just listened to it and believed there were good songs...they werent bad, really..:)) just looking back now i understand we just didnt have much of western culture at that time - madonna, michael jackson, britney spears - they all came a bit later.. at that time we teenagers adored Ace of Base..

i have lots of memories about their songs but the most wonderful i have about this song "Happy Nation" - the only words we understood there were the words from the title - we never knew the meaning of the song, just liked it a lot. I cant remember anything in particular, just know that this song was always with me during my teenage years... and when yesterday 10 years later i heard this song on the radio - i smiled because it brought me back to the years when i was a careless teenage girl, when i knew that my future was going to be the best, when i knew that everything will be just wonderful no matter what...

I still do believe that everything will be fine in the end, otherwise it all has just no sense... thats why no matter what i smile and go my way.. I am glad i heard that song on the radio because it brought back to me the memories i that i thought were long lost and forgotten :))

Here the song goes:

Laudate omnes gentes laudate
Magnificat en secula
Et anima mea laudate
Magnificat en secuala

Happy nation living in a happy nation
Where people understand
And dream of the perfect man
A situation leading to sweet salvation
For the people for the good
For mankind brotherhood

We're traveling in time

Ideas by man and only that will last
And over time we've turned to the past
That no man's fit to rule the world alone
A man will die but not his ideas

Happy nation…

We're traveling in time
Traveling in time

Tell them we've gone too far
Tell them we've gone too far
Happy nation come through
And I will dance with you
Happy nation

Happy nation…
