Despacito – This year’s summer hit!

May 28th, 2017|From the Studio|Comments Off on Despacito – This year’s summer hit!

We’ve been getting lots of messages about “the song that isn’t in English” so we thought we’d let you know all about it!

  • It’s in Spanish and it’s called Despacito which means “Slowly”.
  • It’s performed by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber.

The original version has already been a massive hit all over the world, however, the new “remix” (featuring Justin Bieber) has helped propel this song to the top of the charts in English speaking countries including the UK.

Eye watering Facts & Figures

You need to know, this song is huge!

  • As of today, the video for the original version (minus Bieber) has received an eye watering 1,645,067,439 views on YouTube. Yes, our head is hurting too on that figure.
  • The video for the “new version” with Justin Bieber received approximately 20 million views worldwide on YouTube in the first 24 hours, making this without question the biggest debut of a music video on the platform this year (so far).
  • The version with Bieber has received 233,536,446 views on YouTube (so far) even though there doesn’t appear to be an official video yet.

Scroll down for the full English lyrics (they are rather raunchy!) and both the original version & Bieber version are below. We love both versions!

Lyrics in English?

Yes, you know that I’ve been looking @ you for a while
I have to dance with you today (DY)
I saw, that your look was calling me
Show me the way that I’m going oh
You you are the magnet and I’m the metal
I’m getting closer and I’m setting up the plan
Just the thought of It accelerates the pulse
now I’m enjoying it more than usual
All my senses are asking for more
This must be taken without any trouble
Slowly
I want to breathe your neck slowly
Let me tell you things in your ears
So that you remember when you’re not with me
Slowly
I want to strip you off with kisses slowly
Sign the walls of your labrynth
And make your whole body a manuscript
Turn it up turn it up….. turn it up, turn it up
I wanna see you dance
I wanna be your rhythm
I want you to show me
Your favourite places places places Places
Let me surpass your danger zones
To make you scream
And forget your name
DY
If I ask you for a kiss , come give It to me
I know that you’re thinking about it
I’ve been trying for some time
Mommy this is giving and giving it
You know that your heart with me makes you bom bom
You know that this baby is looking for my bom bom
Come test my mouth to see what It taste like to you
I want to see how much love do you have
I’m not in a hurry , I want to do the trip
Let’s start slowly then wildly
Step by step, soft softly
We are going to get caught little by little
When you kiss me so skillfully
I think that you’re malicious delicately
Step by step, soft softly
We’re going to get caught, little by little
And it’s just that this beauty is a puzzle
But to put it together here I have the pieces
Slowly
I wanna breathe your neck slowly
Let me whisper things into your ear
So that you remember if you’re not with me
Slowly
I wanna strip you off with kisses slowly
Sign the walls of your laberinth
And make your whole body a manuscript
Turn it up
I wanna see you dance
I wanna be your rhythm
I want you to show me
Your favourite places
Let me surpass your danger zones
Till I make you scream
And forget your name
Slowly
We will do It on the beach in Puerto Rico
Till the waves scream dear lord
So that my seal stays with you
Step by step, soft softly
We’re going to get caught little by little
I want you to show me
Your favourite places places places Places
Step by step, soft softly
We’re going to get caught little by little
To make you scream (Fonsi)
And forget your name (DY)
Slowly

Butcher Boy Paphos – New to the Sunshine Radio Directory

May 28th, 2017|Best in Paphos, From the Studio|Comments Off on Butcher Boy Paphos – New to the Sunshine Radio Directory

Butcher Boy Paphos are brand new to “The Sunshine Radio Directory” (the home to locally recommended businesses in Paphos).

Neofytos and his wife Niki are the husband and wife team behind Butcher Boy.

Butcher Boy maybe new to the Sunshine Radio Directory but they are no “spring chicken” when it comes to delivering quality and value in Paphos.

Butcher Boy started trading in 1989  (that’s not too far off 30 years).

With summer on the way, the have created some brilliant BBQ packs with fresh, never frozen produce and they also supply salads, cheese, freshly baked bread, wine and even the charcoal! Even better, all of this can be delivered to your door, free of charge with just one call to Richard who is their resident British butcher.

We say, this summer, order what you need, then get back to the pool or your sun lounger and let Butcher Boy deliver! When you order by midday, they deliver by tea time – 6 days a week and anywhere in the Paphos region (including holiday villas). They also tell us no matter how hard you think you are to find, they will get to you. Put them to the test!

  • Butcher Boy and Sunshine Radio are also teaming up to bring you a brilliant new section here on our website. More on this very soon!

NEW: Dine with Sunshine

April 29th, 2017|Best in Paphos, From the Studio|Comments Off on NEW: Dine with Sunshine

Dine with Sunshine is a brand new section of our website.

It is dedicated to help you discover locally loved restaurants because we can’t help but notice, many of the best places are not featured in the top 10 on Trip Advisor (and perhaps that’s because us locals want to keep things to ourselves!).

In addition to the website section, we have also set up a dedicated Facebook Page so we can update you as we add new places as our main Facebook page is very busy these days!

Discover The Chakarian Colour Centre Paphos & Dulux Denim Drift!

April 28th, 2017|Best in Paphos, From the Studio|Comments Off on Discover The Chakarian Colour Centre Paphos & Dulux Denim Drift!

Pictured above is the beautiful “Denim Drift”, the colour of the year for Dulux. Lovely isn’t it?

Dulux remains the UK’s best selling brand of paint and when it comes to buying Dulux paint here in Paphos, the place to visit really is The Chakarian Dulux Colour Centre.

Chakarian have been the official partners and importers of Dulux paint here in Cyprus for over 50 years.

They actually supply Dulux paint to everyone (all the DIY stores etc) but what we love about Chakarian’s own Dulux Colour Centre is they just do paint! It makes choosing and purchasing less stressful, they take time and effort to assist you and all the staff speak English too.

Find out more here and see The Chakarian Dulux Colour Centre in The Sunshine Radio Directory.

Ed Sheeran Law Suit

April 11th, 2017|From the Studio|Comments Off on Ed Sheeran Law Suit

Here at Sunshine Radio, we LOVE Ed Sheeran. He’s produced some amazing songs over the past few years, however, in the music business, they say “where’s there’s a hit, there’s a writ” and this has certainly been the case for Ed’s song “Photograph”.

Ed was sued by songwriters Thomas Leonard and Martin Harrington in June 2016, with the duo claiming Ed’s hit single had a strikingly similar structure to their track Amazing, which was released by Matt Cardle in 2012.

The songwriters argued in court that the tracks shared 39 identical notes, with similarities “instantly recognisable to the ordinary observer”.

On Friday, papers were filed dismissing the case with prejudice, with the BBC reporting that a California federal court would enforce the terms of the settlement. Richard Busch, who represented Harrington and Leonard during the case, has refused to comment on the precise terms of the agreement.

 

Did you know:

In cases of this nature (copyright claims), the onus is on the claimant to prove the accused was aware of the original song (as it is possible for two people in different parts of the world to come up with very similar tunes). Lawyers use people called “Musicologists” – yes, they really do exist, who are experts in these matters and help prove / disprove their case. Clearly the settlement demonstrates the tunes were too close in notation and structure to have been an accident.

If you want to decide for yourself, you can compare the two songs below.

Bank Holidays in Cyprus – Cyprus National Day – 1st April

March 31st, 2017|From the Studio|Comments Off on Bank Holidays in Cyprus – Cyprus National Day – 1st April

April 1st is Cyprus National Day, a major Bank Holiday in Cyprus when many shops and businesses must close by law. This date is not to be confused with Cyprus Independence Day, which is celebrated on October 1.

The annual bank holiday marks the start of the rebellion for Cyprus to gain independence against the British Colony (April 1, 1955) and many people attend to church gatherings and religiously observe the holiday.

In addition, many schools also hold tributes and programs in their classes around this time to educate the students about the history behind this event in the country.
