There's nothing like good songs to lift you up when you're a little low. The past few days, I was pissed off at work because some loser stole my earphones. Serves me right actually, leaving it plugged in my desktop. It's just disappointing because everyone's earning some good pay working where I work, yet there are still people who can't keep their hands to their own stuff.
Anyway, that's over now. I bought me a new music player. The exact one, I was supposed to get for free, if only I went to that blogger event a few months ago. That means I get to walk along the streets of Makati with music in my ears again.
I know it's kinda emo/cheesy, but songs keep me company. Makes life seem less lonely. It's like they're talking to me. Sometimes they tell a story. Other times they give a piece of advice. There are times and there are songs that don't necessarily make sense, but they're just nice to listen to.
So the past weekend, I've been downloading songs for the player to keep me company.
FIREFLIES (Owl City)
Absolutely no idea what this song is about. It could be about a guy who's afraid to sleep at night in the dark. I don't know. This song does not make any sense. I don't know if I'm stupid, but it really doesn't no matter how I read back the lyrics. But whatever. It sounds nice to the ears.
GOOD LIFE (One Republic)
I need to be reminded of this these days. The new year didn't start off good for me. The song
tells us that we're all young and we should enjoy life. That's how you can say you lived, if you enjoyed everything you've done in your life. Well, it is a good life.
JUST MY LUCK (McFly)
It's an upbeat song I got from the company's common folder. You know how sometimes a romantic comedy movie opens with an upbeat song. This one sounds exactly like one. A song you'd like to wake up to. I like it.
AFTER TONIGHT (Justin Nozuka)
There's something about acoustic music that gets me - I don't know - energized. It could be the cool voice. The strums of the guitar. It could be the suave lyrics. It's kinda sexy. I don't know. It could be just me. But this song, I love this one. I really wish I could find a way to post these music here in my blog so you could hear them too.
WHATCHA SAY (Jason Derulo)
I often hear this song on television when a bad guy does something nasty or reveals something bad in a particular scene. So it initially didn't make an impression on me. But when I saw Daiyel's acapella version of this song on youtube. I fell in love (with the song, not the singer.. well the singer's okay but-). So now I can't stop playing this song whenever I'm online. I even recorded the video on my phone. I'm such a loser. =P
BREAKEVEN (The Script)
My emo break-up song. I don't know why I still listen to this song, when it only reminds me of how bad break ups are for people. The song says, when a heart breaks, it don't break even. Someone's always left behind. Someone's left to fall to pieces. I guess it's the truth behind the song that gets me.
COME ON GET HIGH (Matt Nathanson)
Another song that I don't necessarily understand the lyrics, but I love the melody. Matt Nathanson's songs are ones I could listen to all day without getting tired. Just like Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Jon McLaughlin, Matt White or James Morrison. Great songs backed up by awesome vocals.
EH EH (Lady Gaga)
This is a fun song. Actually this is the only song by Lady Gaga that I can tolerate listening to in long periods. It's a sissy song, I know, but in a funny way I feel good listening to this. Just don't tell anyone I have this on my playlist.
SAY (John Mayer)
I need to listen to John Mayer. He's been telling me to say what I need to say. Maybe if I did, I'd find out that this guy I've grown a liking to, likes me too. John makes great points on this song. It's better to say too much, than to never to say what you need to say again.
So there you go. My playlist. What's in yours?
