Some Songs from New Moon Soundtrack

With the NEW MOON taking the world by storm, its hard to ignore the movie soundtrack to be featured here especially when I saw the album made it to the top of world music charts. I bought a copy the moment I heard that some of my fave indie artists are included on the track list. So without further ado, i listened to the album which comprises 15
rock/alternative tracks and personally, it has only 4-5 stand out songs the rest I found it very dull and boring. But if your really a die-hard fan of this movie plus artists like Muse, The Killers and Thom York from Radiohead all in one compilation, then this one is definitely a must-have.

Two cuts from the album are featured below with its
acoustic version. The first one from DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE with the song Meet me on the Equinox. Its the movie's first official single and is lot more poignant than Paramore's single for the first movie.

The second is Satellite Heart, a beautiful ballad this time sung by ANYA MARINA. Im glad that she's starting to get noticed in mainstream music scene coz she's really good as a singer songwriter with a great melancholic voice.

Music lovers looking to explore somewhat more edgy materials is the positive side of this soundtrack. If you like to discover new sound from new artists, I guess this collection is a great starting point!

KATY PERRY Unplugged!

, a veritable princess of pop has a new, cool release for the fans! She's proud to be following in the footsteps of Nirvana and Alanis Morissette by recording her own MTV Unplugged session last July 22, 2009 that has been compiled into a CD/DVD set and released by Capitol Records.
The album features a handful of her charttopper singles accompanied by acoustic stylized arrangements. It also includes one cover song and a never before released original tune. The album gives a new appreciation for Perry’s vocal skills and talent to sing for acoustic elements, classic piano, orchestral strings, jazz horns, and country western flanged repertoires.

The new cd is a must for Perry’s fans and has the potential of catapulting Perry into the realm of iconic status.

To all Bon Jovi fans out there - the band has just released their new cd entitled THE CIRCLE. This is their 11th studio album which is debuted at #01 spot in several countries including the US Billboard 200 chart.
The carrier single WE WEREN'T BORN TO FOLLOW is a catchy, fun and inspirational rock song although it hasn't got the power of IT'S MY LIFE, definitely one of the best track in the album.

Listen to the stripped version below:

BON JOVI will be having a US/world concert tour early next year in support for the new album.

This song stuck to my head the first time I heard it. I find myself singing it throughout the day. If u need something like a feel good love song or want yourself to be in good mood then I recommend this song for you.

Gray, quiet and tired and mean

Picking at a worried seam
I try to make you mad at me over the phone.
Red eyes and fire and signs
I'm taken by a nursery rhyme
I want to make a ray of sunshine and never leave home

No amount of coffee, no amount of crying
No amount of whiskey, no amount of wine
No, nothing else will do
I've gotta have you, I've gotta have you.

The road gets cold, there's no spring in the middle this year
I'm the new chicken clucking open hearts and ears
Oh, such a prima donna, sorry for myself
But green, it is also summer
And I won't be warm till I'm lying in your arms

I see it all through a telescope: guitar, suitcase, and a warm coat
Lying in the back of the blue boat, humming a tune...

KESHA: TIK TOK (Live & Acoustic)

Kesha Rose Sebert
or known by the stylized stage name KE$HA
is the newest female act that topped the charts with her debut single TIK TOK. At first, I thought the song was from The Ting Tings until I found out that she's also the female voice behind Flo Rida's Right Round.

The song was originally titled as "Dolla" then changed it to "P. Diddy". It was later confirmed by her record label that the final title of the track is TIK TOK.

I kinda like her stuff actually. Electro/Pop-rock with an atittude. Some of her songs are floating around the net too. Songs like Backstabber and Chain Reaction.

Do check it out! =)

ersion of that pop dance track by British R&B singer-songwriter CRAIG DAVID. Check it out!

Singer-songwriter JOSHUA RADIN is not your mainstream type of artist. But with his ability to make simplicity beautiful is carried out in every song he wrote and sing.

Take for example in the song SKY- a cut from his 2008 album SIMPLE TIMES, his whispery vocal style allows him to blend well with the voice of another favorite indie artist MEIKO. The simple melody seems to have been written in a better time for Radin as a stream of positivity runs through its entirety.

I woke dreaming we had broke
Dreaming you left me for someone new
And you cried, drying those brown eyes
Crying you're sorry - sorry won't do

But this is the way I need to wake
I wake to you
And you never left me
All that I dreamt had been untrue
Open my eyes
I see sky

Oh, oh, oh, oh, you know the way to keep me on my toes
I, I, I will be fine - just say you'll stay forever mine
'Til we fall asleep tonight

Last night, we had a great fight
I fell asleep in a horrible state
Then dreamt that you loved my best friend
My heart would not mend - seemed it was fate

But this is the way I need to wake
I wake to you
And you never left me
All that I dreamt had been untrue
Open my eyes
I see sky

Oh, oh, oh, oh, you know the way to keep me on my toes
I, I, I will be fine - just say you'll stay forever mine
'Til we fall asleep tonight

Sometimes I forget to love you like I should
But I'd never leave you - no, I never would
I never would

Oh, oh, oh, oh, you know the way to keep me on my toes
I, I, I will be fine - just say you'll stay forever mine
Oh, oh, oh, oh, you know the way to keep me on my toes
I, I, I will be fine - just say you'll stay forever mine
'Til we fall asleep tonight
'Til we fall asleep tonight

This year wouldn't mean anything without a brand new album from 12-time Grammy Award winner ALICIA KEYS. Set to released on December 15 (US), the album titled THE ELEMENTS OF FREEDOM, her fourth studio album since As I Am (2007).
Keys said the album is diverse but has an overarching pattern. "There's a feeling theme," she explained. "And I think somewhere in there, there's a balance. It's like one side is strong and one side is vulnerable. So that's the theme throughout the album. It has this kind of strong, edgy feel. But it's also intimate and vulnerable and delicate."

The first single, DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING is a perfect blend of a power ballad and a mid tempo love song that marks her poppiest work to date.

They're young...amazingly talented singer-songwriters...and the most promising act in the local music scene to date!

KRISSY AND ERICKA already hit the airwaves with their song UP UP DOWN DOWN, the first single from their self-titled debut album under MCA Universal records.

If you like the sound of M2M- the Norwegian pop music duo that invade us in the mid-1990's with hits like Pretty Boy and Mirror, Mirror then you might also like the sound of Krissy and Ericka. Most of their songs are pop acoustic and has been redeeming awesome reviews and applause from Filipino audience.

PAPARAZZI (Piano Acoustic)

This is my favorite track from Lady Gaga's smash hit album THE FAME. It's so addictive...totally bombastic as Poker face and Just dance!

Backed with a hilariously self-indulgent video, it seems that Gaga continue her quest to infect us all with her unique musical style and futuristic sound.
I also love her when she plays piano especially with this amazing rendition of the song:

When Scarlett sings...

When actress SCARLETT JOHANSSON released her 2008 debut album ANYWHERE I LAY MY HEAD, only few people take her seriously.

But with the released of BREAK UP, her new album with PETE YORN, Johansson's husky, sultry voice fit well on almost every track. She is far better to the more straight forward and less experimental than her previous work which i think her dispassionate vocals were overshadowed by a thick haze of sound effects.
The first single RELATOR is folky and upbeat. I actually found this song enjoyable especially with this amazing performance by the two:

"I'd like to make myself believe

That planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Awake when I'm asleep
'Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep"

from Owl City's FIREFLIES

I damn love this song!...its very meaningful and deep. As long as the intro kick off, you feel yourself being taken off to a playful and fanciful musical world. With a lyrics about lightning bulb, dancing and insomnia, i find it very cool and refreshing!.

If you enjoy electronic music or likes to relax to a more upbeat song, this one is very calming and reminds me a lot about nature, summer and life.

Best Song for Undas

This song is probably the best rap song in the 90's...and my top pick music for undas. THA CROSSROADS is a song about departed friends from Bone Thugs N' Harmony's 1995 smash hit album "E. 1999 ETERNAL".
