Bonnie Bailey’s Ever After from Hed Kandi’s Beach House 04.04
While on our second night of overtime (thank God tonight’s was immensely shorter), this became our anthem. It’s an addicting bubble pop tune. We all sang along like frogs gone wild. It has got some nice lyrics thrown in there, too.

‘Cause life is a pleasure with you by my side, and there ain’t no current in this river we can’t ride. I still believe in ever after… with you.

Michael Buble’s Home from It’s Time
Life may take us to the places that once filled our fantasies, whisk us away to the bright lights of the big city, or shower us with a once-mythical pouring of snow. Yet, in the coldness of the night or in moments of solitude, loneliness blends into longing. And you just find yourself yearning to go back home.

Home is that place where your heart has learned how to love and how to care. That place where memories of good times gone by draw themselves back to your consciousness. That place where, at the end of the day, you would be at your happiest.

Let me go home, I’m just too far from where you are. Let me go home, it’ll all be alright, I’ll be home tonight… I’m coming back home.

Royksopp’s You Remind Me from Melody A.M.
Introduced by Knut, Royksopp (duo Svein Berge and Torbjorn Brundtland) is yet another cultural learning of Norway. But more than that, it’s great music to listen to. Really. As described in, Melody A.M. is filmic, dreamy and finds uncommon beauty in the study of contrasts. It was one of the best releases of 2002 and unquestionably one of the most original, too.

At once frosty and lush, austere and joyful, ambient and wildly detailed, Melody A.M. is equal parts classical, electronica and film score, but with way better optics. Yes, optics–or at least that’s how it feels, adds.

And everywhere I go, there’s always something to remind me. Of another place and time where love that travelled far had found me.

And then I realize, all these tunes remind me of you, my darling.

    I heard from a friend of mine in Vancouver that Michael Buble is so happening in Canada. Well, no wonder as he is cute though his songs are very similar to what I could hear for Harry conick Jr. :-)

    He was popular here in the Philippines, before he shot into the mainstream music industry in the US and Canada. He just had his third concert here a few weeks back.

    Anyway, a friend said that according to a FOF (friend of a friend), Michael is openly gay back in his native land Canada. Hmmm, don’t know if this is true.

    Yeah, Harry is his direct competition. Both are good looking and interpret classics. And both have appeared on TV/movie. Harry for Will & Grace, Michael for independent film Totally Blonde.

    Hmmm… Michael Buble = gay. I wouldn’t be surprised. I like the guy and I have this tendency to like (and even fall, oh my!) for guys who turn out to be gays. Haha! :)
