A nice and girly cover by Kate Nash of the Arctic Monkeys’ Fluorescent Adolescent. I love it when she sings ‘..the best you ever had’. Her accent is so adorable!

I uploaded new, old songs to my iPod and I remembered how much I love listening to this while working at the office, I think during my first few months at GPS. The video’s fun to watch too. DCFC don’t have much upbeat songs, so this might be my favorite danceable track from them.

And i’ll sit and wonder
Of every love that could’ve been
If i’d only thought of something charming to say.

Uh Oh – Taken by Cars

April 10, 2008

So, every month, I search and download for this 100-track indie playlist that is mixed so amazingly, I never had a problem looking for good listens since the first month I started downloading. So for March, I was suprised to see Taken by Cars included in the list. The list, FYI, always consists of American musicians and mostly Brits. And I totally agree with whoever came up with this month’s list to include this band. It was only when I saw this video on MTV when I learned that they were Pinoys. Lovin’ them, and havin’ a big girl-crush on the vocalist!

I feel the time has come to play
I see you look my way
My mind filled with cruel intentions
I’m wanting your affection
Uh oh..

Good music for me, is magic. It surprisingly poofs right in front of you, like how a bunny comes out of that black magician’s hat. It’s a good thing especially when you’re in search for meaning or even when you just want to wee away from reality.

I just have to do two posts today because I was amazed how I just mentioned ‘somewhere in the middle’ in my latest post just below, then I accidentally clicked on this vid by Dishwalla. Old school for some, but old is always good!

Is this about drunken love? All I know is that he fell down, not really sure if he was able to stand back again. And he’s lost. I think.

well I find it hard
I always tried to find the sane life
but I don’t like the way things are
and I keep falling to my knees
somewhere in the middle of this

This one punches straight to your heart, quite heavy but the lyrics are really good. So lovin’ the husky voice (that’s why I looove Sarah McLachlan)
Almost lover? A sad truth. Not good to know that they really exist.
Just an advice: Figure it out man, lovers or friends? It’s hard to be somewhere in the middle! And if you don’t then here’s what I have to say:

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

Huwaw, a music blog!

April 8, 2008

Finally! Been wanting to do this for the longest time!
Now I can talk about the music that I love.
I just have to figure out how to pretty up this one, and Rantspam too.
Happy happy joy joy!
