Day 05 – A song that reminds you of someone

Long time due. A song that reminds me of someone, is not particularly my real life personal selection of someone, but from a feel good movie played by a tragic someone;



sighss.............................

Lucky me to have been alive as a teenager when this movie came out. Patrick Verona wasn't your typical bad boy and Kat Stratford wasn't your typical leading lady. Any other teen-flicks are just, 'Not Another Teen Movie' type with typical plots. Not 'Rebel Without a Cause', nor 'Cruel Intentions' or 'She's All That', nothing, really compares to '10 Things I Hate About You'.  

He reintroduced this song to the teenagers and young adults. Dude so cool I'm still singing this song to his version instead of lauryn hill's.

Enjoy - 









Kat Stratford: I guess in this society, being male and an asshole makes you worthy of our time.
What a feminist. lol.

Patrick: Someone still has her panties in a twist.
Kat Stratford: Don't, for one minute, think that you had any effect whatsoever on my panties.
Patrick: Then what did I have an effect on?
Kat Stratford: Other than my upchuck reflex, nothing.

Walter Stratford: My insurance does not cover PMS!
Kat Stratford: Well then, tell them I had a seizure.

Patrick: It's not everyday you find a girl who'll flash someone to get you out of detention.

Kat Stratford: Tell me something true.
Patrick: Something true... I hate peas.
Kat Stratford: No, something real, something no one else knows.
Patrick: Okay, you're sweet, and sexy, and completely hot for me.



...tsk!

VS2013

This is not my typical entry, but I think this is also not a typical Taylor Swift. Besides looking gorgeous and delivering a power performance, Taylor Swift looks like the one who had the most fun during this event, including with the models, the men were just looking. lol. Gosh, their legs are really up to here (neck)!







Here,  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aanv-bVDjy0  she's really having fun,huh. #jealousmuch? maybe.

Now, I kinda recall, reading somewhere, that that something-something, is fluid..now, hmm...?



I want to wake up to this, every morning. Smiling silly.

I had a bad case of fever on Yuna's first home coming concert in Penang. It was dreadful enough for me to function, my brain couldn't overcome the thought of, "it seemed like I couldn't remember what it was like to feel well.." But once the live electric guitar of Kyoto Project came to life, the vibrations shot through every cell, waking my nerves and my body forgot the sickness, and so was I, came back to life.  

I had a period of melancholy once. I knew it would drag me down to depression. At this moment of my life, I would say that I have not reached that period, but if I were to describe it then, I would certainly have categorized my case as being depressed. My brain kept trying to remedy me out of the case but the heart wants what the heart wants just as the heart feels what the heart feels yeah, so there I was, shutting down my facebook account, wallowing in me, myself and I. And then I listened to Yuna. The ones, before she sounds all too tribal-harmony for my taste nowadays. The ones where she renders heartbreak and happiness, fears and frustrations, infatuation and love in a melody that is deep, dark but combine that with her voice, strangely becoming therapeutic to my well being, bringing both the heart and the brain in sync for the recovery. They still are my go to recovery choice whenever I, at times, wonder around the edge of that territory again, not a spa and massage, not a hot bath in a tub, but Yuna's songs.

      "In high defenition, I'm dreaming of you
      With my disposition, I'm losing my cool
      With my everything, I'd give anything to be with you.."


Opera. I cannot handle this genre. It is too overwhelming. Always telling the human emotions in the deepest possible way, be it of sorrow or despair, it always sounds so tragic. Be it of triumphant or about love and happiness, these genre will just raise me to a point where it gets too overwhelmed, a content too heavy to hold and I'd eventually breakdown. I hate breaking down. It still did not help me from having hit with the same effect when I attended the Beauty and The Beast the musical, although it wasn't exactly an Opera. But, the sensation it triggers is just too raw but yet too fine to dislike, I just have to have a dose of Opera once in a while. Tell me if this rendition of O Mio Babbino Caro isn't too overwhelming, and, Broadway has to be made available in Penang (or Kulim, why not??) on a permanent basis.

And then, there are some songs that just makes my day, probably like a quick dosage of C17H21NO4 for good feeling. Add another one to this list is Paramore's Still Into YouThis song got me smiling silly. Makes me forget the heavy topics in my head. Is it the guitar or the lyrics or the way hayley sings it? You know, I don't know. Didn't I say this song makes me forget the heavy topics in my head?

      "I should be over all the butterflies
      but I'm into you, I'm into you
      
      Let them wonder how we got this far
      Coz I don't really need to wonder at all.."
   

Enjoy: Paramore's Still Into You

Can't count the years on one hand
That we've been together
I need the other one to hold you
Make you feel, make you feel better

It's not a walk in the park
To love each other
But when our fingers interlock,
Can't deny, can't deny you're worth it
'Cause after all this time I'm still into you

I should be over all the butterflies
But I'm into you (I'm into you)
And baby even on our worst nights
I'm into you (I'm into you)

Let 'em wonder how we got this far
'Cause I don't really need to wonder at all
Yeah, after all this time I'm still into you

Recount the night that
I first met your mother
And on the drive back to my house
I told you that, I told you that I loved ya

You felt the weight of the world
Fall off your shoulder
And to your favorite song
We sang along to the start of forever
And after all this time I'm still into you

I should be over all the butterflies
But I'm into you (I'm into you)
And baby even on our worst nights
I'm into you (I'm into you)
Let 'em wonder how we got this far
'Cause I don't really need to wonder at all
Yeah, after all this time I'm still into you

Some things just, some things just make sense
And one of those is you and I (Hey)
Some things just, some things just make sense
And even after all this time (Hey)

I'm into you, baby, not a day goes by
That I'm not into you

I should be over all the butterflies
But I'm into you (I'm into you)
And baby even on our worst nights
I'm into you (I'm into you)
Let 'em wonder how we got this far

'Cause I don't really need to wonder at all
Yeah, after all this time
I'm still into you
I'm still into you
I'm still into you
