CLOSER 2 LOVE


My favorite song to date.




She got the call today
One out of the gray
And when the smoke cleared
It took her breath away

She said she didn't believe
It could happen to me
I guess we're all one phone call from our knees

We're gonna get there soon

If every building falls
And all the stars fade
We'll still be singing this song
The one they can't take away

I'm gonna get there soon
She's gonna be there too
Cryin' in her room
Prayin' oh, Lord come through

We're gonna get there soon

Oh, it's your light
Oh, it's your way
Pull me out of the dark
Just to shoulder the weight
Cryin' out now
From so far away
You pull me closer to love
Closer to love

Meet me once again
Down off Lake Michigan
Where we could feel the storm blowin'
Down with the wind

And don't apologize
For all the tears you've cried
You've been way too strong now for all your life

I'm gonna get there soon
You're gonna be there too
Cryin' in your room
Prayin' Lord come through

We're gonna get there soon

Oh, it's your light
Oh, it's your way
Pull me out of the dark
Just to shoulder the weight
Cryin' out now
From so far away
You pull me closer to love
Closer to love

Cause you are all that I've waited for all of my life
(We're gonna get there)
You are all that I've waited all of my life

You pull me closer to love
Closer to love
Pull me closer to love (You are all that I've waited for)
You pull me closer to love
Closer to love
Closer to love (Cause you are all that I've waited for)
Closer to love

Pull me closer to love

I Hate Pasko!...


Dalawang tulog na nga lang at PASKO na!...Halos lahat yata ay excited sa pagsapit ng araw na yon pero ang inyong lingkod ay kabaligtaran ang nararamdaman. Yez, hate na hate ko talaga ang pasko!... as in kinaiinisan ko talaga ang araw na ito!


Kung pwede lang sanang maghibernate sa mga lugar na walang ganitong okasyon at walang iiwanang responsibilidad na nakaatang sa balikat ay matagal ko ng ginawa!...Pero ikaw gusto mo bang malaman kung bakit ganito na lang ang nararamdaman ko tuwing dumarating ang pasko?...Well ipagpatuloy mo na lang ang pagbasa.

Pag pasko ang kasingkahulugan niyan ay araw ng mga paggastos!...dahil nakatanim na sa ating isipan na ito ay araw ng pagbibigayan kaya hayan at di tayo magkandaugaga sa pagbili ng mga panregalo. Okey lang sana kung para sa pamilya pero nandyan pa ang mga pamangkin, mga inaanak, officemates at kung sinu-sino pa na kung minsan ay hahadaan ka pang regaluhan sila. At kung wala ka namang ibibigay ay ikaw pa ang lalabas na masama at paparatangang madamot, kuripot, walang puso at kung anik anik pa...At syempre pag mga ganitong tyempo ay hindi talaga uso ang tipid tipid. Mula sa pagkain, kuryente, tubig, isama mo na ring ang pagconsume mo ng load/telepono--lahat yan lumulobo! Okey lang siguro kung isa kang empleyado ng gobyerno o kahit s a pribadong kumpanya at least may aasahan kang bonus at 13-month pay, pero kung ikaw na may mga taong nagtatrabaho sa yo, mahirap gawin na di ibigay ang mga bagay na talagang inasahan na nila.

Nandiyan din ang mga nangangaroling. Oks lang pag mga batang makukulit at kahit paulit-ulit basta ba okey ang mood ko pero kung mga matatanda na ginagamit ang pagiging indigenous kuno, konting tambol tambol lang sa iyong harapan (sori di ko alam ang pangalan ng instrument, un bang ginagamit sa pag-"tadek" in iloko) at konting sayaw, presto- datung na! Dumarami din ung mga taong harap-harapan kang lokohin gaya ng bibigyan ka ng sobre o isang papel na may nakasulat na kesyo nagsosolicit sila ng tulong para sa isang foundation..grrr! pag pasko talaga naglalabasan ang mga mandurugas!

Bukod dyan tuwing pasko ay nasisira din ang aking diet!...Ako na isang tabaing tao, nalingat lang sa pagdidyeta at pag-eexercise ay agad na mamumutiktik sa aking katawan ang mga taba at madadagdagan ang aking timbang! Sa dami ng mga pagkaing nakahilera sa iyong harapan ay talagang ibayong hirap sa pagkontrol sa sarili ang kinakailangan.

Isa pang dahilan kung bakit hate ko ang pasko ay ang pagdoble ng pressure sa trabaho. Lahat ay double time mula sa ordinaryong working day kaya naman sa gabi ay super stress ang byuti ko at pag umatake pa si Mang Insomnia ay ngarag na talaga ko kinabukasan.

Pero siyempre pag mga ganitong okasyon naman ay di ring maiwasang makinig at magpatugtog ng mga kantang pamasko...Gaya na lamang ng isang awiting ito ni Ka Freddie na tuwing nakaplay at lumalabas mula sa 'king music player ay medyo pinagmuni-muni niya ako...Idol talaga si Ka Freddie Aguilar dahil lumikha sya ng isang napakaganda at kaaya-ayang awiting pampasko.

BEST COLLABZ!


I love it when two or more artists agreed to collaborate a song especially when they are very current and the ones that usually topped the charts and the record tills.

This year is no exception- their are song collaborations out there that really worth listening. Sometimes it make us surprise because of the unusual pairings (e.g. Taylor Swift and T-Pain
in Thug Story to Lady Gaga and Beyonce's Telephone) but what's more important is that they gave us a good material that is really entertaining.

Check out some of the best collaborations below:

BUTTERFLY Miley Cyrus/Billy Ray Cyrus
from Hanna Montana soundtrack, Miley sounds great when she sings ballad. It features "Achy Breaky Heart" singer Billy Ray who happens to be his dad!


I LOSE MY HEART Chris Isaak/Michelle Branch
Remember Chris Isaak? He's the singer behind the melancholic song "Wicked Game" in early 90's. This year, he released a new cd titled "Mr. Lucky Guy" and this song is one of my favorite cut in the album.


COME HOME One Republic/Sara Bareilles
I never thought that they would come together. This song really gives me chills...its so beautiful!


HALF OF MY HEART John Mayer/Taylor Swift
The collaboration plan started when Mayer guested in Swifts' Fearless tour. So here it is and was also released as the the next single from Mayer's latest work "Battle Studies".



This song is currently the #01 single in Billboard Hot 100 chart. Its a duet from rapper Jay-z and Grammy award winner artist Alicia Keys. The song is Empire State of Mind.

that's all folks!

BRING ME SAFELY DOWN



(lyrics)

I will be there when all your gypsy days are done
I will be standing by the stage at night to help you sing your songs
Sing out along
Give me the will to carry on
Give me the strength to sing my songs
And I will never be alone
I will never be the one
Who always finds you there alone and tired
When all along you were the only one that I admired
Bring me safely down

This flyover town is such a crappy place to be
I need a rock-n-roll location for my rock-n-roll dream
What does it mean
This path that keeps us in our beds
Our greatness waiting till we're dead
And I don't want to be alone
Bring up that melody so strong
That I can scarcely hear the words or music
The voice it lent itself you long ago, now use it
Bring me safely down

You're smoking up your mind
And you've abandoned common sense
And you're afraid to let it out
All that natural born pretense
And you do wear those clothes so well
That tell the whole world what you think
Yeah, you're cranking up that velvet
While you're smashing all the pink
Into a memory
A precious memory

Are you the blade that will cleave our common foe
Do you feel man enough to try what I feel man enough to know
It's painted gold
But it won't roll your 20 when
Your sagging eyes are growing dim
And I don't want to be alone
Or see you dragged down by the stone
Into a middle age that you see coming
It doesn't give a damn for you, so keep on running
Bring me safely down

Akuztik Pick 8: LENKA


I saw Lenka's guesting in ASAP 09 today singing her signature song, The Show. (Watch the clip here.)

Although she sounds like a second rate Lily Allen (and reminds me of Katy Perry!), she has her own musical highlights especially with the song Trouble is a friend. The acoustic version is much better than the studio one. It's pretty awesome and raw - so better check it out guyz!

BOYS LIKE GIRLS acoustic


American pop rock band BOYS LIKE GIRLS are definitely one of the hottest act this 2009. They continue their mark on the mainstream music scene when they scored another chart topper/radio-friendly song LOVE DRUNK which also the title of their second studio album.




The bad thing about this band is that their sound is so generic. Sometimes you feel like listening to Blink 182 or Good Charlotte. But when it comes to their songwriting skills and highly melodic sound then you would give a credit for this band.

Take for example in TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE - once you hear the melody of the song it is really so addictive plus the fact that it features guest vocal from no less than country teen sweetheart Taylor Swift. Her voice is very well-suited to Martin Johnson (lead vocalists of Boys like Girls) and its really a very moving duet that stands as proof of its own title.



Surely, Boys Like Girls will continue to shine this 2010!

BAD DAY


Canadian singer-songwriter DANIEL POWTER become famous with his signature song Bad Day in 2006 and topped the list of One Hit Wonder of the decade by Billboard Magazine. The magazine defined a one-hit-wonder as any act who managed to crack the charts/record sales with their first single then never heard them again.


The song was used in American Idol Season 5 as a 'goodbye song' for the contestant who are voted off every week then eventually went to #01 spot for five weeks.



Powter, who said he has battled drugs and dyslexia in the past, took two years off after "Bad Day" made him famous. He returned last year with a new album Under The Radar, but failed to mimic the success of his first hit.

ONE REPUBLIC'S NEW SONG!


Ryan Tedder and the guys of ONE REPUBLIC are back with a new single ALL THE RIGHT MOVES, a cut from their latest studio album entitled WAKING UP.
The band who rocks the chart with the song APOLOGIZED, wishes the new record to duplicate the success of their debut album Dreaming Out Loud (2007).

Stream the new song below:



I'm really loving their new CD. I loved their first one, and love this one just as much, if not more. Each and every song is an extraordinary musical experience.

To get the full effect of the album though, it really helps to listen to it all in sequence. Each song helps strengthen the others. It's almost like a live show more than a CD. Awesome job OneRepublic!!!
