There is something with Elton John’s Tiny Dancer that makes me happy-sad. It’s the same thing I feel when listening to Landslide. Happy-sad, maybe because Almost Famous is a happy-sad movie too. You see, I find it hard to describe what happy-sad is. The thing is, I know when a song is happy-sad. I may not be able to pin what makes a song happy-sad but once I feel it, I know it.
PS. I know, Patrick Fugit is cute and adorkable.
PPS. You can view the songs on my Chill playlist by visiting my Grooveshark page.
I have been hearing Some Nights by Fun for quite a while. I liked it mainly because it reminds me of Afternoon Delight by the Glee Cast Version. I do not know about that association– maybe because of how it sounded at the start.
So I was at the bookstore yesterday, passing time, and they played the song. I have been looking for the title of that song but I had not found it because I barely remember the lyrics. So I asked a local celebrity, who happened to be at the bookstore, about the title and he said it’s Some Nights.
Definitely this will be an addition to my Chill Playlist. Here’s a good cover of the song. Have fun!
Heed of caution: Please don’t listen to Adele when you’re sad, depressed, or your boyfriend has just left you because she might lead you to climb on top of your office building and jump from there.
I always say that if Adele didn’t know how to write a song, she would have been dead right now. But despite all these things, you have got to love her. You see, this is the reason why we love Adele so much. Masochism is everybody’s guilty pleasure and listening to Adele gives me a certain masochistic intervention. She sings about heartbreaks and however you might not want to reminisce that ex who left you really broken (like her of course, but we don’t know if that is true) but you keep on listening to Adele because she sings your love story so good, you wouldn’t mind hurting listening to her.
At least, that’s how I feel.
So after I woke up today, I found myself listening to Someone Like You in an almost excessive harassment of the replay button in Youtube. Yeah, I may have some masochistic tendencies but I just love listening to her. She is fat but she is adorable and every time I see her, I wanna give her a hug. I have a love /hate relationship with her: I love her because she sings all so good especially when she teases her hair like a beehive and I am hating her the same time because she really plucks a string right in to my heart. The good thing is that, I don’t have any razor sharp object near me right now or else….
You just got to love her…….YOU NEED TO LOVE HER.
Anyway, I discovered this song of hers and it is a great change. Yes, it may sound broken but I still love the quirkiness of the tempo. I hope you enjoy
