Sing Along....

Sunday, September 24, 2006

I have written in length about how I (and I am quite positive that many others too) associate songs and mementos with certain special events and times. So I decided to come up and record some songs that have meant a lot to me so that later on I can look back and remember those days with warm affection.

I am not normally this sadistic, but somehow, this song has always reminded me of some things that I'd rather forget. Even though the facts involving that phase of my life with which I associate this song are pretty (rather vastly) different, I have nevertheless felt those days come back to me the minute I hear this song.

Cry (by Faith Hill)

If I had, just one, tear running down your cheek
Maybe, I could cope, maybe I'd get some sleep
If I had, just one moment at your expense
Maybe all my misery, would be well spent

Yeah.... Could you cry a little
Lie just a little
Pretend that you're feeling a little more pain
I gave, now I 'm wanting
Something in return
So cry just a little for me

If your love, could be caged, honey I would hold the key
And conceal it underneath the pile of lies you handed me
And you'd hunt ,those lies
They'd be all you'd ever find
And that'd be all you'd have to know
For me to be fine

Yeah.... And you'd cry a little
Die just a little
and baby I'd feel just a little less pain
I gave now I'm wanting
Something in return
So cry just a little for me

Give it up baby
I hear your goodbye
Nothins goin save me
I can see it your eyes
Some kind of heartache
Darlin give it a try
I dont want pity
I just, want what is mine.... (quote please!!)

Yeah... Could you cry a little
Lie just a little
Pretend that your're feeling, a little more pain
I gave now I'm wanting
Something in retrun
So cry just a little for me

Yeah... Cry just a little for me


Then there is another song which never fails to cheer me up no matter how ugly a mood I am in. Plus, this song even reminds me of Legally Blonde (beacause it is its OST) and the oh-so-uhhmazing Elle Woods which in turn inspires me to work and underlines the fact that has been recently underlined by the Adidas people too- Impossible Is Nothing.

Perfect Day (by Hoku)

Sun's up
A little after twelve
Make breakfast for myself
Leave the work for someone else
People say
They say that it's just a phase
They tell me to act my age,
Well I am

On this perfect day,
Nothing's standing in my way

On this perfect day,
When nothing can go wrong

It's the perfect day,
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon
I could stay, forever as I am

On this perfect day

Sun's down
A little after ten
I pick up all my friends
In my Mercedes-Benz

Wake up
Don't tell me it's just a dream
'Cause when I've had enough
You'll hear me say,
Now don't you try to rain on my

Perfect day,
Nothing's standing in my way

On this perfect day,
Nothing can go wrong

It's the perfect day,
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon
I could stay, forever as I am
On this perfect day

La la la
La la la,
Oh, oh

I'm in the race
But I've already won
(La la la)
And getting there can
Be half the fun
(La la la)
So don't stop me
Till I'm good and done,
Don't you try to rain on my

Perfect day
It's the perfect day

It's the perfect day
Nothing's gonna bring me down
I could stay, forever as I am

On this perfect day
Nothing's standing in my way,

On this perfect day,
Nothing can go wrong

I'm in the race
But I've already won
And getting there can
Be half the fun,
So don't stop me
Till I'm good and done,
Don't you try to rain on my

Perfect, day
On this perfect day
On this perfect day


The song that I now consider my 'theme song' is....

Unwritten (by Natasha Bedingfield)



I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your innovations
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

Oh, oh, oh

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inner visions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
To the years where your book begins

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
To the years where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inner visions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
To the years where your book begins

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
To the years where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
The rest is still unwritten
The rest is still unwritten

Oh, yeah, yeah


(Well, I couldn't make anything bold over here since then I'd have had to make the whole thing bold!)


This song by Roxette is the ultimate...

It Must've Been Love (by Roxette)

Lay a whisper on my pillow,
leave the winter on the ground.
I wake up lonely,
there's air of silence in the bedroom
and all around
Touch me now, I close my eyes and dream away.

It must have been love but it's over now.
It must have been good but I lost it somehow.
It must have been love but it's over now.
From the moment we touched, 'til the time had run out.

Make-believing we're together that I'm sheltered by your heart.
But in and outside I've turned to water like a teardrop in your palm.
And it's a hard winters day, I dream away.

It must have been love but it's over now.
It's all that I wanted, now I'm living without.
It must have been love but it's over now,
it's where the water flows, it's where the wind blows.


These are the major songs that I have identified with. Of course, there are loads of others which are very close to me but they aren't as touching as these.


Well, the wordings may not seem to be 'touching' as such, but their music has always struck a chord somewhere inside me and I find myself smiling or crying when they play (and when I sing them).
