Q: "for a song" in 131 とはどういう意味ですか?
A: From my understanding, "for a song" can be used as an idiom to mean "very cheap". So, in this case, he is saying, "We got that portrait of his mother very cheap."

A: I have yet to do that
= I haven't done that yet

It sounds perfectly natural to me.


Q: The song is catchy. I wonder catchy is only used for a song? Is there any other example of catchy not relating to a song. を使った例文を教えて下さい。
A: A commercial’s slogan could be catchy. Catchy is a phrase or tune that “catches” your attention and usually gets stuck in your head. Such as “nationwide is on your side”. Sometimes even political slogans can be “catchy” as it’s something you remember.

Generally, people will say “this song has a catchy beat”! (Which means that the beat will get stuck in your head or is fun to dance to, etc, even if you don’t like the lyrics).

“The song is so catchy that I find myself singing along despite not even liking it”.

“Their commercial’s slogan is so catchy that I find myself saying myself unconsciously saying it whenever it comes on”.

Let me know if you need more examples!

Q: song, music and tune を使った例文を教えて下さい。
A: "They played music." - General.
"They played a song." One song.
"They played in tune." They harmonized or played to the beat of an instrument.

Most of the time, they all center around the generalization of music. Music itself is what makes a song, or tune =)
Q: "it's so hard to accept that I listened to this song more tham 45 years ago" is this sentence correct? を使った例文を教えて下さい。
A: That sentence works! :)

Just be careful - “tham” should be “than” (probably just a typo)

You can replace “more than” with “over” if you want (it’s a common thing to do before numbers), but both ways sound completely natural to me.

A: A song is something that is sung and music is normally an instrumental piece.
Q: song と music はどう違いますか?

Q: I love the song "Shoot the moon" by Norah Jones.
But I can't perfectly understand the meaning of the whole lyrics and
some lyrics in the song really confuse me.

I have several questions.

Below is the whole lyrics and after an arrow mark(->) there are my questions about the lyrics.


The summer days are gone too soon

'You shoot the moon

And miss completely'

-> What does this lyrics mean?
you take a risk and fail completely?

I've heard that the phrase "shoot the moon" is from the card game 'Hearts' and it means taking a big risk and if you succeed, you'll get a big success.

And now you're left to face the gloom

The empty room that once smelled sweetly

Of all the flowers you plucked

'if only You knew the reason'

-> Is it the same meaning as 'I wish you knew the reason' ?

'Why you had to each be lonely'

-> In this lyrics, why is there a word 'each'?
The subject is a singular form 'you' not 'we'.
If possible, can you suggest another sentence having the same meaning?

Was it just the season?

Now the fall is here again

'You can't begin to give in'
-> what does 'give in' mean? surrender?
In my short knowledge of English, I have no idea except for surrender.

It's all over

When the snows come rolling through

You're rolling too with some new lover

'Will you think of times you've told me'
->here, Is it possible to use other words like 'would you', 'can you', or 'could you'?'

That you knew the reason

Why we had to each be lonely

It was just the season


Please help me out!!
I want to know the meaning of the song perfectly and enjoy it better!

If you're a fan of Norah Jones, please don't ignore me!!

Hope you guys let me know the meaning!

Many thanks in advance!!
A: Finally free to answer!! Here we go!

1. The more typical phrase that this lyric is referencing is "Shoot for the moon", or "Even if you shoot for the moon and miss, you'll land among the stars." This phrase means to aim for a really big goal, with a high risk of failure, like what you thought. I think it comes from American history--with the great Race for Space in the 1960s and America being the first to land a man on the moon--we were "shooting for moon"; it was our goal, despite how crazy it seemed. So in this case, the speaker had big dreams, but totally failed at making them reality.

2. Actually I think this sentence--"If only you knew the reason"--is related to the following sentence--"Why you had to each be lonely". So the full sentence would read--If only you knew the reason why you had to each be lonely.

3. The reason the word "each" is in the sentence above is because in this context "you" means multiple people--the speaker is talking to the couple, or herself and her former lover. It's a plural usage of you--like "you all".

4. Yes exactly! "give in" means surrender :D

5. Yes all of those other options would work--Norah just liked the sound of "will"--it's the only one of the options that definitely sounds in future-tense.

Hope that helps and let me know if you have any other questions about English!!
