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 🙂

My latest faves:
Hosanna – Brooke Fraser – Love love the music and lyrics 😀

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 😀
maybe sometimes can be fluffy but it’s great 😛

“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..”

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 😛

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

Lately I’ve been downloading some songs from itunes 😀 cos I got an itunes gift card from a friend for doing photography work with her 😀
and then I think because of that It also lead to buying various albums 😛
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 😦

Church Retreat enforced songs..

These two stuck in my head for some time.. the first one more.. sooo annoying hehe..
“Therefore, being, justified, by faith..” – just that line..
and then later
“chewy chewy chewy chewy ompah pah.. aiy yai yai yai yah yah yah” [yes I say aiyaiy instead cos it sounds better :P]
It sounds like one of those songs where you can sing in rounds.. but I still haven’t quite gotten the hang of the beat yet, nor can I remember the lyrics, and Someone kept jumping ahead with the lyrics[there were two pages dissecting them] so that I had to make up the lyrics during the first verse… [I don’t know if that someone reads this though]

the other song – a youth song.. which I quite like the lyrics of but the melody in the chorus got a bit too repetitive after a while and I felt the need to harmonise but not thought of how yet..
“Indescribable, uncontainable, awestruck we fall on our knees as we humbly pro-claim, you are amazing God..” [altho I mixed the two parts of the chorus together ooops..]

is so cool, sounds like jap/french/italian mixed!

We were singing some new choruses, much harder than before esp when we have to learn new non-chromatic [is that how you call it?] notes And in Latin.

Sad thing is Altos don’t get many parts..

Who’s it by? Faure, edited by John Rutter -now that name I have heard of.. somewhere..

Edit: ahh wow nice he did many hymns and christmas carols 😀

Love the lord your God with all your heart
and, love the lord with all your soul
and, love all man kind and love as you would love yourself and
Love, the lord your God, with all your heart tick tick tick boom..
with all your soul and love all mankind..
We’ve got Christian lives to live, we’ve got Jesus Christ to give [love to give]
We’ve got, nothing to hide, because in him we abide…


Songlead this song today at mother’s day service 😀

And I’ve only just learnt it.
