This is a beautiful song by Jason Mraz...

I am endlessly touched by the lyrics and the meaning behind those soulful voice.
This song is really about pure, innocent, true love; A love that beats all the odds and all the flaws. It is about seeing someone perfectly imperfect.

I melt listening to this song...


You've got the best of both worlds

You're the kind of girl who can take down a man,

And lift him back up again

You are strong but you're needy,

Humble but you're greedy

And based on your body language,

And shoddy cursive I've been reading

Your style is quite selective,

though your mind is rather reckless

Well I guess it just suggests

that this is just what happiness is

Hey, what a beautiful mess this is

It's like picking up trash in dresses

Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you write

Kind of turn themselves into knives

And don't mind my nerve you could call it fiction

But I like being submerged in your contradictions dear

'Cause here we are, here we are

Although you were biased I love your advice

Your comebacks they're quick

And probably have to do with your insecurities

There's no shame in being crazy,

Depending on how you take these

Words I'm paraphrasing this relationship we're staging

And what a beautiful mess, yes it is

It's like picking up trash in dresses

Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you say

Kind of turn themselves into blades

And the kind and courteous is a life I've heard

But it's nice to say that we played in the dirt

Cause here, here we are, Here we are

Here we are

We're still here

What a beautiful mess, this is

It's like taking a guess when the only answer is "Yes"

Through, timeless words and priceless pictures

We'll fly like birds not of this earth

And tides they turn and hearts disfigure

But that's no concern when we're wounded together

And we, tore our dresses and stained our shirts

But its nice today. Oh the way it was so worth it.

"Para kang yosi di ko maalis

Para kang kapeng nakakapaso ang init

Para kang beer kung tumama sa akin

Para kang coke na nakakaadik!..."

Akuztik Pick 11: Mason Jennings

One of the best-kept secrets in pop music is singer/songwriter Mason Jennings.
If you like intricate guitar work, powerful, emotive vocals and strong lyrical content, chances are you’ll dig this dude.
Listen to one of his song titled FIGHTER GIRL- the first single from his 2008 album In the Ever (under Brushfire records). This is also a classic example of acoustic pop-folk and the perfect starting point to introduce you to Mason Jenning's music.

I'm definitely not the biggest USHER fan but i’m really liking his sexy new single OMG (featuring, a track from his sixth studio album Raymond v. Raymond!...
At first, I wasn’t hook of the single. In fact, I actually thought it was crap!...But then the more I heard it, the catchier it became.

The song already reached #01 in the Billboard chart making it his ninth number one single.

THE REASON acoustic

I hadn't heard this song in a very long time until yesterday...It's brilliant and I have been listening to it like all day, along with some other old alternative, rock tunes. Seriously, the past years had some serious tunes. I miss the old days. =(

hoobastank- the reason

In it's simplicity, this song has it all. Beautiful arrangement and very powerful lyrics... sorrow, change, and hope. This song does not have the word "love" in it, yet the four word refrain make this one of the most powerful love songs there is.

I've been listening to this all night.
This song is immortal...the passion is always there!

I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance
I have never seen that dress you're wearing
Or the highlights in your head that catch your eyes I have been blind

The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek

There's nobody here, it's just you and me, It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never for get, the way you look tonight

I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright you were amazing
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, It took my breath away
I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

The way you look tonight
I never will forget, the way you look tonight
The lady in red
The lady in red
The lady in red
My lady in red (I love you.)

My Favorite Mistake...

I can hear my heart as I see you
and I
try to smile so you wouldn't know that
I'm missing you,
but no matter how hard
I try,
I can still feel the pain

without you
things will never be the same..

It's hard to tell your mind to stop loving someone,
when you're heart still does!

JOHN MAYER Live in Manila was originally scheduled to happen this May. But it has been moved to October 1, 2010. I heard tickets holders can opt to hold onto their ticket or get a refund.

Next in Manila concert scene are my favorite rock band DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL. They've been around for a while but they really broke into the scene when they did "Vindicated" for Spider-man and when the alternative love song "Stolen" become a huge hit worlwide. Now Chris Carrabba and his boys are coming to Manila to give Filipinos more of their music. (Concert details here.)

And from their latest studio album After the Ending, check out the acoustic version of the first single Belle of the Boulevard:
