    I also read that q sounds like very soft t, and gj like soft d. Is it true?

    And r sound, in songs it is often pronounced as rolled r, like in Russian or Serbian, while on TV programs it sounds something like English r. Why is that? How do you really pronounce r?
    Well if you have a very good Albanian accent, then r is not rolled because in Albanian we have 2 r's in the alphabet 1 that's just R and RR which is rolled.

    do te shkojne = jan tuj shku

    and q is not like a vert soft t, its like a Ch sound like i said, except it is pronounced a bit differently, and GJ is like the j in jogging, because albanian G is like the g in games and albanian J is like the y in yes

    and some singers have better accents than others, sometimes, singers from south have very 'balkan' sounding accents, but if u heard for example albanian television hosts from albania speak on television they usually have very good accents

    *btw my gheg is not very good because i am a tosk speaker, i am just trying to use examples i understand to help you understand the differences, in most cases this is why i do not translate songs in gheg because i do not want to mislead anyone if this is the dialect they are learning in

    and yeah,that between Ivena and Gabriela really happened becuz of Shpat's song lol,actually artists from ARA music often sing originally Albanian songs.I can mention: Alisia - Burzaj bavno/Adelina Ismajli - Shko n`r.s; Alisia - Cherno kafe/Shpat Kasapi - Pa ty s`jetoj;Ivena -Neshto malko,cherno/Shpat Kasapi - Do te fal nje rruze;Kati - Kato luskavo ferari/Bleona Qerreti - Une jam pure shqiptare;Stefani - Izdaj me/Big mama - Jo jo nuk te dua... and probably many others

    I'd also like to ask if the surname Đogani/Gjogani is really Albanian?
    are you talking about this person:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%90ogani

    Đorđe ogani

    it says in albanian his name is apparently "hamit gjogaj" this sounds more albanian than "gjogani" but still, i do not think this is an albanian surname..

    this is poetic, some terms were difficult to translate

    Korab Shaqiri - Bie shi // it's raining

    bie shi ne ket qytet // it is raining in this city
    une per ty seq u ndjeva all // i have been missing you
    eci i rruges fill i vet // walking along this road all alone
    diqka shpriti po me kap // something catches my soul

    i vetmuar t`kerkoj n`ket nat // lonesome, i search for you, in this night
    ishte von nje gjeth i that // it was late, something strange
    paska ren ne tok // has fell on the ground
    eshte shi apo bor // is it rain or snow

    i vetmuar sa nje pa vend // lonesome, like a person without a place
    mallin tim askujt s`ja them // i won't tell anyone of my longing
    jo askujt s`ja them // no i won't tell anyone
    ne mes zjarr sa deshte // you wanted to be in between fire
    pastja me ike // and then you left me
    sti kuptova kurr syt e si // i could never understand your eyes or how
    ndoshta ske harruar // perhaps you haven't forgotten
    puthjen ton te nxeht // our heated kiss
    ne ket streh kur binte shi // in this bed, when it would rain

    tej pertej me shpon kjo nat // all around this night pierces me
    dikush thot njeri pa fat // one may say, a person without fate (about him)
    bota s`eshte e sinqert // the world is not sincere
    fare nuk e ka dert. // it doesn't feel pain (of others)

    te kerkoj ku je // i look for you where are you
    vetem ti nuk je n`ket qytet me shi // your the only one who's not here in this city of rain
    gjithqka m`duket e ftoht // everything seems cold to me
    ku me je une t`kerkoj // where do i have you, i'm looking for you
    kur une jam pa ty // when i am without you
    dhe nuk dua t`besoj se nuk kthehesh ti // i don't want to believe that you are not coming back

    ne ket nat te lagur me shi // in this night wet with rain
    dhe nuk dua t`besoj // and i don't want to believe
    se nuk kthehesh n`ket stin // that you are not coming back in this season
    se nuk kthehesh n`Prishtin. // that you are not coming back to Prishtina

    Yup,not only about Gjole but also his brother Gazmen(Gagi).Actually Gagi is part of my fave Serbian group Funky G and I heard he and his brother are Albanian gypsies.But their surnames really didn't sound neither to me like Albanian,they sound more like gypsy-Albanian in fact lol

    Lol, they should not call themselves "albanian" then when they are not : P
    plus when they sing in serbian or bulgarian and not in albanian, maybe they just know how to speak albanian also

    Oops, in the song there was a misprint, "sti kuptova kurr syt e si" should be "sti kuptova kurr syt e zi", that is "i could never understand your black eyes" =)

    mhmm sorry i cant be of any help for that one, i can barely find a music video/clip

    and for future reference you can try www.teksteshqip.com for albanian lyrics, they dont have this one but usually they have a wide range of lyrics

    NRG Band - Shehide, i know no one asked for the translation but i was just listening to it and realy like it and everyone in Kosove was singing it this summer, if anyone knows Cima and Leci the humorist's, well they first came up with this song.
    (btw. Shehide is a taditional/old albanian name, its my grandma's name too :P )

    Eeeeev oj Shehide o kaj me lote ae man n'men o kur lujshim me tope

    Leonora Jakupi - Sahara

    Ti me thua trendafil dhe don t'me marresh sherr largohu sherr
    ti harron se trendafili oh sherr oh sherr
    perpos fletes ka dhe gjemba mundesh me u therr

    Buzen time ke me marr kur te bie bor ne Sahar
    se per mua je oh xhan nje pik uj ne oqean

    Zemren time lozonjare
    mendon se do ta merr largohu sherr
    kur te them se jam e jotja te kam genjy
    prape genjehesh kur mendon se zemren ma ke thy

    Ti me thua trendafil dhe don t'me marresh
    You call me a rose and you want to take me (marry me?/be with me)
    sherr largohu sherr
    noise go away noise (sherr actually referes to an argument)

    ti harron se trendafili
    you forget that a rose
    perpos fletes ka dhe gjemba mundesh me u therr
    besides the petals has thorns where you can get slaughtered

    Buzen time ke me marr kur te bie bor ne Sahar
    You will have my lips when it snows in the Sahara
    se per mua je oh xhan nje pik uj ne oqean
    cause for me my dear, you are a single drop of water in the ocean

    Zemren time lozonjare
    My free heart
    mendon se do ta merr largohu sherr
    you think youre going to get it, go away noise
    kur te them se jam e jotja te kam genjy
    when i tell you im yours, i have lied
    prape genjehesh kur mendon se zemren ma ke thy
    again youre lied to when you think you've breaken my heart

    I actually think that by "sherr largohu sherr" she means "trouble go away", because sherr means trouble or a quarrel, and it makes more sense then noise.

    Aha.So I was right for hi.Just we have such word in Bulgarian too and it means "at all". We also have "inat" so I understand it too I guess it's because both words are Turkish.
