are some songs that I won't get bored hearing over and over
again. Each song accompanies me a specific stage(s) of my
life. Ups and Downs. They are quite enjoyable too. Hope you
like them as well.
Learn to be Lonely - Phantom of the Opera
Found Love - Rihanna
Through out the months living in London, I had my share of
European cultural delights. At
the same time I had my fun period. There were time I
struggled with loneliness, but then I had let it go and
started going out meeting people. In contrast to people
saying that it is rare to meet good quality friends, I met
quite a few deep hearted ones. I even found love in a
Thinking back, I did lived a vivid life in London.
Poker Face - Lady Gaga
Telephone - Lady Gaga
After the first year in Hong Kong, I realized that this is
not a place to find love. So aside from long work, my
activities are travelling and clubbing. And Lady Gaga has
been with me for these two years.
2009: You can't read my poker face; because I am liking
2010: Stop calling, I don't wanna think anymore; I left my
head and heart on the dance floor.
My stay in Hong Kong coincides with the economics downturn.
My life is mainly undisrupted, but I learn that life is not
perfect. I am content for getting a B. =)
Pensiero Stupendo -
I first heard this song through a Gucci's
commercial starring beautiful Charlize Theron. The class,
the gracefulness and the ecstatic moment have enchanted me.
More, the foreign language has brought up the diverse side
of me. It's just magical. Along with Ave Maria by Beyonce,
the song became my theme songs for my 26th B-day tour to
Europe. Just feel plainly elegant.
But I decided not listen to this song again. It shall be
kept as memory.
Around - Daniel Powter
Life's been good, I can't complain so far/ Designer clothes,
expensive caviar/ And gated homes to keep the wolves at bay/
Tinted glass to hide my guilt and shame. Now whatever comes
your way/ Sometimes you win/ Sometimes you loss/ When it all
comes down you make it through...
Late 2008 is the state of mind which I attained internal peace.
There are uphills, hiccups, great friends, good job, goal
and challenges in my life. I am grateful as I am happy.
Jump - Madonna
Leaving Vancouver was a challenge to me,
coz Van is just so good. I really had to listen to "Jump" to
always remind myself to pursue somewhere more career-oriented:
"there's only so much you can learn in one place, there more
that I wait, the more time that I waste..." I never regret
the decision of spending a few of my prime years in
Vancouver. These two years had transformed me to be humbly
happy and have the capacity to share happiness with people.
Shut up and
Drive - Rihanna
Do you know the Ping Pong Song
- Enrique Iglesias
Big Girls Don't Cry
Lollipop - Mika
All these songs don't mean much to me. Like fashion they are
pleasing for the moment but fade the next min. Nonetheless,
in aggregate they represent a unique stage of my life -
Progressing and Idling. Idling because I was stuck in a
situation like my feet are nailed to the ground. Progressing
because I still move my arms and body and explore new
interests, like exploring new pops.
Girls Just Wanna
-- by Cyndi Lauper
It is the theme song of my backpack trip to Mexico 07. Then
this who-cares-about-the-future mood carries onto the next few
Oh I wanna be
the one who walk in the Sun. Oh baby I just wanna have fun.
-- by Madonna
A musician that can call the clubbers to the floor, if not Madonna, then who else?
It has been one and a half year since this song debuted. Well,
when I first listen to this song, I was a notional person;
with time, I grow and I am real. This song represents one
specific obstacle that I overcame, and I turned out healthy.
-- by Daniel Powter
When I was young, I felt resentful for things didn't go in my
way. Now, things have changed. After thru grindings, a depression, and a fall from grace, my glassy
heart got shattered. Courageously I must pick'em up piece
by piece and again live my life. "Bad Day" is a
song that accompanies me through the
down time. It's
a token to remind me what happened in my life and to encourage me to live
fully and happily everyday.
Old Habits Die hard
-- by Mike Jagger
Isn't it every man's dream to be Alfie? I can live a
glamorous life, but I will never be Alfie. A great quote in the film is that "I don’t depend
on nobody and nobody depends on me. My life is my own," Alfie
says, at the end of the film. "But I don’t have peace of
mind. And if you don’t have that, you don’t have nothing."
A Love that Will Never Grow Old - Golden Globe Best Music 2006
-- by Emmylou Harris
This piece of music illustrates the fundamental meaning of
love, or in other words "True Love". Life could go back to
mediocrity, but the simple love will brighten one's life. I do
wish I could meet the true love of my life, but in reality
things are real. That's why I enjoy this touching piece of
MUSIC so much. Enjoys.
I Don't Want to Say Goodbye
-- by Teddy Thompson
Perhaps I am missing intimate love in my life, songs that
describe the departure of loved one always capture my soul.
HERE is the lyric. Enjoys.
Listening to his songs (that specific "Anyone of Us" album)
always reminds me my stay in London and Europe. The cultural
shock there is undeniable. And if you get a chance to watch the MTV of
"Anyone of Us", I bet you will be mesmerized my the
magic of Venice as well. Enjoys.
To Say Goodbye /or With you I Will Go (/or Italian: Con Te Partiro)
Sarah Brightman (& Andrea Boccelli)
This song portraits two lovers who are
separated by distance. May be they both live in different
countries, but through dreams they exist for each other...
"With you I will sail to countries I never saw and share the
experience with you..."
is the lyric and English translation.
Eyes On Me
by Faye Wong
SONG of Final Fantasy VIII
one's ambiguity of reality or dream. A sense of lost in life.
- 王菲 (English:
Wish You A Good Life)
by Faye Wong
This is a musical representation of an eminent Chinese poem, 水调歌头. This poem
captures the feeling of reaching the peak, and the feeling of
departure. I made an English translation of this poem
Another Suitcase In Another Hall
piece of music captures the moment of being lost in love and lost in the
society, and yet ignites flames to improve the current status.
It is quite enjoyable and
HERE is the lyric.
