ah, haven’t posted for so long that it’s sad..
I will share with you some songs I’ve been recently connected to and loved ๐Ÿ™‚

My latest faves:
Hosanna – Brooke Fraser – Love love the music and lyrics ๐Ÿ˜€

I see the King of Glory, coming on the clouds of fire..the whole earth shakes
I see a generation rising up to take their place, with selfless faith..
I see a near revival.. stirring as we pray and seek.. we’re on our knees

Love the bridge:
Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me.
Break my heart for what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdom’s cause
As I walk from earth into, eternity
From the Inside Out – Hillsong

A thousand times I’ve failed
Still your mercy remains
And should I stumble again
Still I’m caught in your grace

Everlasting, Your light will shine when all else fades
Never ending, Your glory goes beyond all fame
my heart and my soul, Lord I give you control
Consume me from the inside out Lord
Let justice and praise become my embrace
To love You from the inside out

Your will above all else, my purpose remains
The art of losing myself in bringing you praise

has amazing music and lyrics ๐Ÿ˜€
maybe sometimes can be fluffy but it’s great ๐Ÿ˜›

“Everything you hold in your hands, yet you make time for me, I can’t understand..
“Praise you God of earth and sky, How beautiful is your unfailing love..”

YUI: Good-bye Days

This song means so much more now that I’ve seen the movie ‘Taiyou no uta’
refer to my christian drama/anime review blog for more details ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is the song
[To see the Japanese version and hear the song go to this lyrics site :)]

Translation Good-bye Days

So Iโ€™ll go to you now, Iโ€™ve made up my mind
I want to play you the song in my pocket

I quietly turned up the volume to make sure

Oh good-bye days
I feel like things are changing now
So long yesterday and before
I have a clumsy tenderness by my side
~With you

I pass you one earphone
And in that moment, it plays slowly

I am I loving you right? Sometimes I get confused

Oh good-bye days
Now whatโ€™s in my heart has begun to change, alright
I have a clumsy tenderness by my side
~With you

I donโ€™t want to have sad thoughts if I can help it
But theyโ€™re bound to come, right?
When they do, Iโ€™ll smile and say
Yeah hello! I hope I can call you
My friend…

When we sing the same song
Be by my side, I wish
Iโ€™m glad I found that clumsy tenderness

…Good-bye days

I heard she was writing a new album and it’s out soon! ๐Ÿ˜€ it’s been years! I wonder how her voice has changed if at all ๐Ÿ™‚
just today her song stuck in my head

“I wanted, to be like you, but I got swept away..

If you want to I can save you,
I can take you away from here,
so lonely inside, so busy out there,
and all you wanted was somebody to care..

Please can you tell me, so I can finally see.. where you go when you’re gone..”

A friend asked me a few weeks ago.. what cd was my favorite..
but I dont really have one..
it all depends on my mood..
she told me to name three cds..

I thought about it later.. and .. I don’t have a particular cd
but I do not mind listening to songs that reflect my mood or my thoughts or my personality..
I think that’s what makes me like a song a lot..
and of course, the melody can’t be too repetitive or cliched.. cos then I’d start to get sick of it or cringe it..
I can’t listen to one song for too long.. I get afraid that I’d hate it in the end ๐Ÿ˜›

But if you have to narrow it to Cds.. then those that I won’t get sick of that easily are:
Breakaway – Kelly Clarkson
Fumbling into Ecstacy, Afterglow – Sarah Mclachlan
Best of – The Corrs
Innocent Eyes – Delta goodrem [selected]
Shades of Purple – M2M [selected/mood]
What to do with daylight – Brooke Fraser [selected]
Incomplete – BSB [selected]
Damien Leith’s first album of covers – selected [I only like his voice haha not that i’ve heard of his actual songs though :P]
Michelle Branch’s First album! Spirit Room

Growing to like cds/artists – but need to listen to more thoroughly:
The Fray, Lifehouse, Nickelback, Chris Tomlin, Albertine – Brooke Fraser, Sakamoto Maaya’s new album from Japan, Imogen Heap, Yui, Jason Mraz – cool stuff!

Old favorites that I listen only when I’m in the right mood lol..cos some are just cringy or remind me of things..:
James Blunt, Veronicas, Guy Sebastian, BSB oldschool, Evanescence, Savage Garden, Utada Hikaru, Ayumi Hamasaki, Musicals of sorts, furniture music, OSTs/soundtracks

It’s rainy and gloomy and why does this song stick?

sometimes songs just stick and they don’t relate to anything..
or maybe they do.. in some way

for some reason I thought these two songs were the same song.. maybe cos it worked when you sung it..
“Been up all night drinking[thinking], to drown my sorrow down/I would not hesitate”
“to tell you all the things I never said before, don’t tell me it’s too late..
Cos I’ve relied on my illusions,
to keep me warm at night..
But I denied in my capacity to love
I’m willing to give up this fight..” [then connects to]
“If all of the strength and all of the courage
Come and lift me from this place,
I know I can love you much better than this..”

It’s interesting.. cos they contradict.. just like my mind does sometimes ๐Ÿ™‚

The songs are by Sarah Mclachlan

Ahhh forgot about this… hehe

But here I go with some memory dumps of recent lines from songs ๐Ÿ™‚
atm it’s a jap one ๐Ÿ˜›
called Passion by utada
omoi dase wa,…mitaa.. boku ni wa… [mostly music cos I can’t remember the lyrics :P]

from High School musical 2[This is gonna be one of those songs I’ll be able to sing off by heart :)]:
I gotta say what’s on my mind,
something about us, doesn’t seem right, these days,
life keeps getting in the way,
whenever we try somehow the plan, is always rearranged..
It’s so hard to say, but I gotta do what’s best for me, you’ll be ok,..

I go to move on and be who I am,
I just don’t belong here,
I hope you understand..
We might find our place in this world someday,
but at least for now,
I gotta go my own way..
Avril Lavigne’s Innocence:
This innocence, is brilliant,
I hope that it would stay,
This moment, is perfect..
please don’t go away,
I need you now..
so hold on to this won’t you let it pass you by..
I’m yours – Jason Mraz
I won’t hesitate no more, no more…
It can not wait, I’m yours..
..listen to the music with the moment maybe on sing with me.. I love[ala] peaceful melody..
No need to complicate our time is sure, this is our fate I’m yours..
Garnet – Oku Hanako – a friend’s favorite song ๐Ÿ™‚
Even if someday I like someone else,
You will always be special and important to me,
like the seasons which come again..

Albums and itunes

Lately I’ve been downloading some songs from itunes ๐Ÿ˜€ cos I got an itunes gift card from a friend for doing photography work with her ๐Ÿ˜€
and then I think because of that It also lead to buying various albums ๐Ÿ˜›
I found some albums to be cheaper if I bought them in a shop and others cheaper on itunes – if I only wanted one or two songs etc..
so what I got so far are old albums as well as a few new..
Brooke Fraser – Albertine
Sarah Mclachlan – Solace
Kelly Clarkson – Thankful
Chris Tomlin – Arriving
Garage Hymnal – Take my life

Currently Bidding:
Lifehouse – No name face

Bought on itunes – some stuff that I had liked before and heard on radio or recommended by friends or remixes[some weren’t that good].

Utada Hikaru – remixes – Addicted to you, Hikari, Passion – game ver, Wait & See
Jars of Clay – Waiting for the world to fall
Avril Lavigne – My happy ending, When you’re gone
Lifehouse – You and me, Hanging by a moment
Kelly Clarkson – remix acappella – Walk away
Rachel Yamagata – Quiet, Be be loved
Delta Goodrem – Believe Again, In this life, Bare Hands
Ne-yo – Because of You

The sucky thing about itunes is, once you buy it, and if the song sucks, you can’t get the money back ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Beautiful Disaster

I just found out just now that that song by Kelly Clarkson sounds So different on the Thankful album compared to the Breakaway album – a live version..
I like the live version way better, I don’t know why but the album version sounds so different and not appealing.. :/

maybe cos I’m used to the live ver..

but anyway, about kelly, I’m gonna see her live concert in march!!! XD
and although I love her breakaway album, I find the newest album to be a different style and too rocky with a different attitude?[so I didn’t get it] and then her past album ‘Thankful’.. a bit weak maybe.. – or maybe they’ll grow on me..
