Reply 1997 – Alone music video by Bee Gees

Bumped into this music video while doing some Youtube hopping of western music from the 1990’s. Alone by British pop group Bee Gees, released in 1997.

Bee Gees have sold more than 220 million records in a career spanned over half-a-century, placing them among the world’s all time best-selling music artists.

Old memories

Not particularly fond of this song, but it’s one of those memory-trigger pieces that stuck in my head. I just started driving (mostly to tuition and libraries) back then and this was played so often on the radio that it became toxic LoL.

It was also during the first “major” crossroad I faced. Just got into pre-university and pondering whether I should switch to business or stay with science stream. Chose the later partly because of a girl, and the rest is history.

It’s been 20 years now. Two of the three brothers in Bee Gees are in heaven, and I’m probably halfway through my journey. Time flies for sure, carpe diem.

BTW, Reply 1997 is a popular Korean drama series about pop culture and memories in the 90’s. I’m borrowing the title to tell my own stories.

Fabio Cannavaro Japanese samurai tattoo

A little throwback, Italian soccer star Fabio Cannavaro on the cover of Vanity Fair Italia [It] in May 2006. What caught my eye is the Japanese samurai warrior tattoo, which actually looks cute and a contrast to his muscular body.

Speaking of 2006, Cannavaro captained the Italian national team that won the World Cup in Germany a few months after the magazine is published. He was later named as FIFA World Player of The Year and also won the Ballon d’Or.
