FEELING CHEESY

Nothing makes me cheesier than listening to slow music. My taste in songs have drastically changed since I hit 25. I no longer listen to fast songs which don't make sense if you listen to the lyrics. Although sometimes it helps when you're listening to upbeat songs to lighten up my day, but since I'm walking again to get to my ride home, I find myself strapping an earphone on one ear and listening to relaxing music from my phone. I don't have an mp3 player, sorry.

Here's my current playlist favorites.

PLEASE DON'T STOP THE RAIN (James Morrison) - I've written the lyrics to this song before, just scroll down if it's still there. Anyway, I like the message of the song, and I love the melody. I'm not sure if this song is for a girl or for a friend, but the message is really simple, it's like he's saying that you can't stop the rain from falling so just come to me, I'll give you shelter from the rain. Or something cheesy like that.

BROKEN STRINGS (James Morrison & Nelly Furtado) - It's actually a very sad song if you listen to the lyrics. They're breaking up because they don't love each other anymore. They've already tried to work things out but it's just not meant to be.. A few weeks ago, I wasn't listening to any other song than that. I cannot relate to this song, but I don't know why I'm so fond of replaying this in my head.

THE MAN WHO CAN'T BE MOVED (The Script) - This song only caught my attention the other day on our way to Tagaytay. I've heard of this song before, but only really liked it last Sunday. At first, it was the melody that I liked, but then yesterday I found the lyrics to the song, and was really moved by what I read. This guy, I don't know what happened but it seemed that he broke up with his girlfriend. He's saying that there will come a time that she might miss him and come look for him again, so what he does is just stay where they first met so that she won't have a hard time finding him again. Nice, right. My new favorite song...

EVERLASTING LOVE (Jamie Cullum) - Kinda jazzy, and this song is like from a few years ago. I think this is a remake or something, but it's a classy rendition. I like the piano works. It was my frustration from when I was still a kid. I actually studied playing the piano, I can read notes (or at least I think I still can). Anyway, my fingers just aren't that nimble I guess. But this song kinda reminds me back in the days when I was still studying piano. I shouldn't have been a brat back then and just studied.

FALLING SLOWLY (Kris Allen) - I've liked this song even before Kris Allen decided to sing his version of this, and I think it made me like it even more. The thing about it is, I've read the lyrics alot of times, but am having a hard time piecing it together to find out what it actually means. But there are just some songs you'd rather listen to than discern it's meaning.

I'm on reminiscing mode today, which is good. I'm not depressed (my xbox is broken again), fortunately not the unfixable kind of problem, and I'm still covered by the warranty.
