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

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

is an application on facebook that lets you add music you like to your profile..

It also lets you play an addictive game… which my bro and some friends keep owning me in hehe..

it’s also good to learn new music and see how easy it is to distinguish some bands/singers are from others..

One can also see how similar some bands are such that you cannot tell one from the other,…even though me not knowing the band could be a contributing factor..

Bands that sound similar:

simple plan, yellow card, all-american rejects, weezer

pink floyd, pearl jam, nirvana..

switchfoot and relient k

those noisy hiphop bands..

my bro’s obsessed with owning me in everything.. esp since I don’t play any online game with him anymore.. so facebook provides that..

currently there are two games: iLike and the Pets .. but there’s also petting the fluffy friends and throwing food at me.. lol

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 😀

Side point: In the front page of wordpress you can see tags, and the largest font sized one is the most talked about topic.. and guess what it is?

LIFE – most ppl talk about their lives :P, next is stuff like music, which is what I’m doing hehe… but when I think about Life I think about life in general and the meaning of life, there are many meanings in that tag life 😛


Anyway, the latest music that fascinates me is Flamenco Sketches and Bye Bye Blackbird by Miles Davis – listening to it for tomoro’s listening test, it’s the nicest one out of them all… maybe it shows I like cool, modal jazz .. [the bad thing is, I don’t have the full version, only thirty seconds of it :(]  Edit: I actually do find the sax a bit too startling when it comes in but otherwise I like the reflectiveness and smoothness of it. – see my facebook iLike for a sample.

John Coltrane’s ‘spiritual’ jazz is interesting too, gives a nice atmosphere and I like those effects…

Fields of Gold – [lol I mistyped god just then..:P] Eva Cassidy

Quiet – Rachael Yamagata

“I don’t expect anything..”

Those two are on my winamp alarm playlist whenever I use it.. and the melodies are really nice and stick in my mind.. not the lyrics yet, hehe

Edit: And then I thought today the song by Ayumi kinda matches the music of Quiet a bit..altho it’s not as quiet hehe ..

The song is called Pride ..

I would love to do a mix of songs that sound alike 😀

YAy I just did! :P…
boo it doesn’t let me embed.. so here it is:
