Playlist I’m in Love With

1. Empire of The Sun – Walking on a Dream

THE soundtrack of my life at this moment.. *wink*

“Walking on a dream, how can I explain.. Never looking down I’m just in awe of what’s in front of me.. Catch me Im falling down.”

2. Lily Allen – Fuck You

She’s criticizing George Bush in this adorable song.. The video is just too cute!

“Fuck you very, very much. Cause we hate what you do and we hate your whole crew so please don’t stay in touch.”

3. MGMT – Kids

“Old stuff” from earlier this year. Still gets me going though 🙂

“Decisions to decisions are made and not fought, but I thought, this wouldn’t hurt a lot. I guess not.”

4. Gym Class Heroes – Cookie Jar

Years passed by, but this song never bores me. “Cheesy” lyrics with bold memories =)

“Want you to be the one and my only, I want to be faithful but I can’t keep my hands out the cookie jar.”

5. TLC – I’m Good at Being Bad

TEN years and still one of the most awesome, original and strong RnB song. I miss them =(

“A good man is so hard to find… Well, actually, a hard man is so good to find.. YEA BABY!” 😆

All this talk of getting old…

Control yourself, take only what you need from it.

That was a stupid YM conversation between me and my stupid best friend. She tricked me on April Fool’s Day saying she’s lost her virginity to someone who is not Mr. Right in any way, observed from any angle (okay, hot bod, but that’s it *wipes drool*). Now that I think about it, it was so stupid and naive of me to have believed in such a lie. But blame “QLCfor making her bring up all the “having sex and losing virginity” subject NONSTOP.. It just felt so possible that time -_-

Later on she asked, “What would you do if it were true, that I had lost my virginity to him that night?”

I thought for a while. What would I do? Should I be doing anything? It’s her life, her hymen she’s messing around with, why should it have anything to do with me, even if I am one of her closest and best friends?

“Well, I’d feel sorry for you, and be thankful that it didn’t happen to me.”

Sounds mean and heartless maybe. But if that were the question, then that is exactly what I would do. Another story if the question was: “What would you do if I went into deep depression and self hatred afterwards?”

If so, I’d give a more sympathetic answer, such as: “Well, I’d feel sorry for you, and be thankful that it didn’t happen to me… But I’ll be available 24/7 in case you need me!” *hugs2 kiss2*

We don’t live long enough to experience ALL the mistakes in life. So we learn from other’s wrong steps, their misfortunes, their failures. I guess that’s why we constantly need our friends, other people around us. One of the reasons is to learn from them, and share each other’s success and stupidity.

I surely have done some intentional mistakes in life. Irrational and stupid ones. Those dearest ones tried to remind me but I kept ignoring, saying: I know this is not right, but I just have to do it anyway, and maybe I can learn from it.

Now when I tell them: “Okay, I’ve had enough. No more suicidal plans in the name of earning more experiences“, some raise their eyebrows: “Are you sure you’ve had enough? At this age?”

Maybe I’m not yet completely old and wise (hey, aren’t that supposed to be our grandparents sitting on rocking chairs telling us stories from their youth??)… but looking at all this emo, dramatic, volatile trend…

You are the last drink I never should drunk.
You are the body hidden in the trunk.
You are the habit I can’t seem to kick.
You are my secrets on the front page every week.
You are the car I never should have bought.
You are the train I never should have caught.
You are the cut that makes me hide my face.
You are the party that makes me feel my age.
Like a car crash I can see but I just can’t avoid.
Like a plane I’ve been told I never should board.
Like a film that’s so bad but I’ve gotta stay til the end…

Pulp – Like A Friend

…I hope I truly have had enough. Never again. No more of those stupid drinks, bodies, habits, secrets, cars, trains, cuts, or parties. Amin.

Is It You?

I’m looking for a lover not a friend
Somebody who can be there when I need someone to talk to
I’m looking for someone who won’t pretend
Somebody not afraid to say the way they feel about you

And I’m looking for someone who understands how I feel, 
Someone who can keep it real and who knows the way
The way I like to have it my way
And I’m looking for someone who takes me there, 
Wants to share, shows he cares
Thinkin you’re the one that I’ve been waiting for

Is it you? Is it you? 
Maybe you’re the one I’ve been waiting for
Could you be the one for me? 
Could you be the one I need? 

I’m looking for someone to share my pain
Someone who I can run to, who would stay with me when it rains
Someone who I can cry with through the night
Someone who I can trust who’s heart is right
And I’m looking for someone

Someone who won’t take for granted
How much I care
And appreciates that I’m there
Someone who listens
And someone I can call who isn’t afraid of love to share

This one is dedicated to “him” =)

The Lightning Seeds – I Wish I Was In Love

I was never one to shout out loud
Or stand out in a crowded crowd of people with their ball point views
But here I am to bare my soul, lose the past and take control
Of everything that I hold true, and now I wish I was in love

I was never one to make a fuss, even then the two of us
Were tumbling form all we knew
I could say I needed you, but would that give you the reason to
Believe that you could need me too

And now I wish I was in love

Holding on for dear life
This is what it feels like
Coming in from outside
Looking for a life line

And now I wish I was in love
 

The Lightning Seeds – I Wish I Was In Love

_________________________________________________

Surprisingly, this song is nowhere to be found on the internet.. NOT EVEN YOUTUBE! 😦
I really miss it and dying to hear it, can anybody tell me how and where to get records of old songs from a decade ago?

Lala – What About You

I fell in love instantly when I first heard this song! Apparently the singer is half Filipino, half Indonesian. Hm, interesting.. No wonder her English pronunciation is so “American”. It is such a typical sad chick song, but I believe all women in the world can easily relate to it. Beautiful song, I love love love it =)

 

Lala- What About You

What about you
What’s going on
Baby that someone that I used to know is gone
What about us
The promise we made
We said that we will never die
We try to work it out
So tell my why
Am I still hurting inside

What am I gonna say to make it better
It’s now or never, do or die
What am I gonna do to make this love last forever
I still believe that what we said is true
What about you

What about love
‘Til death do us part
Baby is there still a place for me inside your heart
What about dreams
Are they still alive
We said that they will never die
We try to work it out
But tell my why
Are we still living a lie

What am I gonna say to make it better
It’s now or never, do or die
What am I gonna do to make this love last forever
I still believe that what we said is true
What about you

Why am I still hurting inside
Why are we still living a lie

What am I gonna say to make it better
It’s now or never, do or die
What am I gonna do to make this love last forever
I still believe that what we said is true
If only I can make you feel it too
what about you
What about you

Gwen Stefani – Early Winter video

You, you know how to get me so low
My heart had a crash when we spoke
I can’t fix what you broke
You, you always have a reason
Again & again this feelin’
Why do I give in?
& I always was, always was one for crying
I always was one for tears

[CHORUS]
The sun’s getting cold, It’s snowing
Looks like an Early Winter for us
Looks like an Early Winter for us
An Early Winter
Oh I need you to turn me over

It’s sad the map of the world is on you
The moon gravitates around you
The seasons escape you
& I always was, always was one for crying
I always was one for tears
No, I never was, never was one for lying
You lied to me all of these years

[CHORUS]
The sun’s getting cold, It’s snowing
Looks like an Early Winter for us
Looks like an Early Winter for us
An Early Winter
Oh I need you to turn me over

The sun’s getting cold, It’s snowing
Looks like an Early Winter for us
Looks like an Early Winter for us
An Early Winter
Oh I need you to turn me over

Why?
Why do you act so stupid?
Why?
You know that I’m always right

[CHORUS]
The sun’s getting cold, It’s snowing
Looks like an Early Winter for us
Looks like an Early Winter for us
An Early Winter
Oh I need you to turn me over

It looks like an Early Winter for us
It hurts & I can’t remember sunlight
An Early Winter for us
The leaves are changing colour for us
& it gets too much, yeah it gets so much
Starting over & over & over again
& it gets too much, yeah it gets so much
Starting over & over & over again
& it gets too much, yeah it gets so much
It looks like an Early Winter for us

The song was written by two of the most outstanding musicians in the world: Gwen Stefani & Tim Rice-Oxley – who happen to be the top 2 people I’d die to meet. I can’t believe how long it took me to notice this video’s existence! The video is downright amazing, Gwen looks morbidly beautiful, and the dark and gloomy aura of the song was perfectly delivered. The only thing I hate about this video is the lack of Tim’s presence. Where is he? I have always pictured this video with Tim playing his piano while Gwen sings.. 😦

Seriously, two of your favorite-est musicians (from two separate countries & genres) working together isn’t something that would happen casually everyday and it is very disappointing that Tim doesn’t appear in the video.. *sobs*
