Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , , at 12:52 pm by LynxLee

Unless you live under a rock with no TV or Internet, you’ve probably heard of the new TV Musical Series – GLEE. This song was the promotional track that kept playing everytime the show starts. It’s got many covers as well. Do check out a YouTuber, Nick Pitera’s version below. Now that’s a man’s voice! Lyrics has a very wide appeal, the composition is brilliant; song remaked from Journey’s original (First Video) – Love it lots too! Now go enjoy this awesome track!

Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Paying anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

Don’t stop believing
Hold on to that feeling
Streetlight people



Just a small town girl
Living in a lonely world
She took the midnight train going anywhere
Just a city boy
Born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train going anywhere

A singer in a smoky room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

{Refrain}
Strangers, waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people, living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Paying anything to roll the dice
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

{Refrain}

Don’t stop believing
Hold on to that feeling
Streetlight people

Miley Cyrus – The Climb

I can’t believe I never posted this song. Surely it’s inspirational and motivational to many. If you like this, you might like the latest from her called “When I Look At You“.

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

The struggles I’m facing
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I’m not breaking

I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going

And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there’s a voice inside my head saying
“You’ll never reach it”

Every step I’m taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking

But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

The struggles I’m facing
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I’m not breaking

I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going

And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

‘Cause there’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb, yeah!

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Somebody’s gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb, yeah!

Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It’s all about, it’s all about the climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa

Miley Cyrus – When I Look At You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 11:11 am by LynxLee

If you like “The Climb“, you might like this song from the same artist.

You appear just like a dream to me
Just like a kaleidoscope colors that cover me
All I need every breath that I breathe
Don’t you know you’re beautiful (Yeah, yeah)

When my world is falling apart
When there’s no light to break up the dark
That’s when I, I (I) look at you
When the waves are flooding the shore and I
Can’t find my way home anymore
That’s when I, I (I) look at you

Everybody needs inspiration
Everybody needs a song
Beautiful melody, when the night’s so long

Cause there is no guarantee
That this life is easy (Yeah)
When my world is falling apart
When there’s no light to break up the dark
That’s when I, I (I) look at you
When the waves are flooding the shore and I
Can’t find my way home anymore
That’s when I, I (I) look at you

When I look at you
I see forgiveness, I see the truth
You love me for who I am
Like the stars hold the moon
Right there where they belong and I know
I’m not alone (Yeah)

When my world is falling apart
When there’s no light to break up the dark
That’s when I, I (I) look at you
When the waves are flooding the shore and I
Can’t find my way home anymore
That’s when I, I (I) look at you

You appear just like a dream to me
Just like a kaleidoscope colors that cover me
All I need every breath that I breathe
Don’t you know you’re beautiful (Yeah, yeah)

When the waves are flooding the shore and I
Can’t find my way home anymore
That’s when I, I (I) look at you
I look at you
Yeah, yeah

You appear just like a dream to me

Kina Grannis – Valentine

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 12:17 am by LynxLee

Happy Valentine’s Day!! Regardless of it’s history, it’s a day everyone celebrates LOVE. In Malaysia today, the first day of Chinese New Year is also the “la Saint-Valentin”. Many couples/families celebrate a week in advance, some celebrates later, some celebrates it half the day but all in all; it’s all in the love you feel from presence and the thoughts from the people that matters so much to your life.

I’ve stumbled upon Kina Grannis’ Valentine song in YouTube and I had to share this in my blog. I love the soothing sounds of her voice, guitar and lyrics. The video is really cute as well.

Valentine's Day

Be My Valentine

It’s a good excuse for anything love today. So I’m gonna spread some love. Show love to Kina Grannis, Andrew Garcia’s Straight Up (from YouTube to American Idol – you might recognize him from my previous post “Notice Me”) and the movie Valentine’s Day (Witty, Funny and Exciting). Also this video of good medley on Valentine.

Valentine's Day

MY Happy Valentine

On a personal note, MUCH much love to my family, my friends and my significant other.

To everyone; HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR and Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Love, I don’t need those things
I don’t need no ring
I don’t need anything
But you with me
‘Cause in your company
I feel happy, oh so happy and complete

And it’s a good excuse to put our love to use
Baby, I know what to do
Baby, I will love you
I’ll love you, I’ll love you

Love, it’s a special day
We should celebrate and appreciate
That you and me found something pretty neat
And I know some say this day is arbitrary

But it’s a good excuse to put our love to use
Baby, I know what to do
Baby, I will love you
I’ll love you, I’ll love you

Love, I don’t need those things
I don’t need no ring
I don’t need anything
But you with me
‘Cause in your company
I feel happy, oh so happy and complete

And it’s a good excuse to put our love to use
Baby, I know what to do
Baby, I will love you
I’ll love you, I’ll love you

So won’t you be my honey bee?
Giving me kisses all the time
Be mine, be my Valentine

So won’t you be my honey bee?
Giving sweet kisses all the time
Be mine, be my Valentine

Christopher Cross – Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 4:35 pm by LynxLee

I heard this somewhere in my office’s building and just remembered the good ol’ times. I like the start of the lyrics, here’s my interpretation:

“someone who turns you heart around” – makes yr heart beat good and have a change of heart
“you’re closing down the town” – staying out late until the last business in town closes
“wake up and it’s still with you” – it refers to “the feeling”
“between the moon and New York City” – trapped somewhere and not by anyone at night

Moon and New York City

Staying Up Late Floating in Between Spaces

The song is the theme song of this movie about a poor working girl who gets picked up by a drunken rich guy, who couldn’t manage to take care of himself for ten minutes on his own…if memory serves. They rescue each other. The song itself is simply about being caught somewhere between a dream world…a Cinderella fantasy and the real world…the dirty and ugly and unpleasant real world.
(Mary from Yahoo Answers)

I’ve been staying out late a lot these past few nights, and dare I say that my family has got concerned for a bit. Even my significant other. I know I won’t always get to be out like these. It’s that little appreciation knowing people trust you and love and concern about you. It’s that certain times you know you’re happy.

Once in your life you find her
Someone who turns you heart around and
Next thing you know you’re closing down the town
Wake up and it’s still with you
Even though you left her ‘way cross town
Wondering to yourself, “Hey, what’ve I done”

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
Best that you can do, best that you can do is fall in love

Once in your life you find her
Someone who turns you heart around and
Next thing you know you’re closing down the town
Wake up and it’s still with you
Even though you left her ‘way cross town
Wondering to yourself, “Hey, what’ve I done”

CHORUS:
When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
Best that you can do, best that you can do is fall in love

Arthur he does as he pleases
All of his life, he’s masters choices
Deep in his heart, he’s just, he’s just a boy
Living his life one day at a time
Showing himself a really good time
Laughing about the way they want him to be

CHORUS

CHORUS

CHORUS

When you get caught between the moon and New York city
I know it’s crazy
But it’s true

Five For Fighting – This Dance

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 1:53 am by LynxLee

You might recall this group singing the song Superman. This song sounds about the same, so it should sound familiar. Very sweet song.. much like drinking a sweet Korean barley drink. (Don’t quote me). =P

Anyhow, this track has been playing around the Malaysian radios a bunch of times now. Plus, my +1 really like the song; so here ya go sweets! I told ya I’ll find that song for you. =) yes, you put the “beautiful” in my life.

This Dance

May I have this dance?

This is not our favorite song
but the night is moving right along
may I have your hand, may I have this dance.

On matters of clarity
is not secret you are carrying me.
But you disguise thoughts of fall
I will keep you safe.

So while is just me and you
I thought I might say to you
You put the beautiful in life.

This is not our favorite song
but the night is moving right along
may I have your hand, may I have this dance.

I sense that you are amused,
but you just bought those brand new shoes.
It would such a shame not to give us the chance.

And oh my love there is only so many dances we can take across the night.

So while is just me and you
I thought I might say to you
You put the beautiful in life.

I know at times that you feel alone
when I’m here and I’m never home.
You said before is the price that you pay.

On matters of clarity
is not secret you are carrying me.
But you disguise thoughts of fall
I will keep you safe.

And oh my love there is only so many dances we can take across the night.

So while is just me and you
I thought I might say to you
You put the beautiful in life.

And oh….
oh…oh…

This is not our favorite song
but I wish it go on and on
it’s moments like these
singers do all they can to stop time.

So let me just say to you
before the DJ changes the tune
you put the beautiful in life
you put the beautiful in life.

Lady Antebellum – Need You Now

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 4:50 am by LynxLee

Lady Antebellum rocked the Grammys with such an emotional song. Though the other Grammy performances were better, I simply love this song the most. Let me know what you think. “You know I need you now..”

Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone ‘cuz I can’t fight it anymore.
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.
It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now.

Another shot of whiskey, can’t stopping looking at the door.
Wishing you’d come sweeping in the way you did before.
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.
It’s a quarter after one, I’m a little drunk and I need you now.

Said I wouldn’t call but I lost all control and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without.
I just need you now.

Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone ‘cuz I can’t fight it anymore.
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.
It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now.
Said I wouldn’t call but I lost all control and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without.
I just need you now.

Another shot of whiskey, can’t stopping looking at the door.
Wishing you’d come sweeping in the way you did before.
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.
It’s a quarter after one, I’m a little drunk and I need you now.
Said I wouldn’t call but I lost all control and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without.
I just need you now.

Oh whoa
Yes I’d rather hurt than feel nothing at all.
It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now.
And I said I wouldn’t call but I’m a little drunk
and I need you now.
Well I don’t know how I can do without.
I just need you now
I just need you now.
Oh baby I need you now.

Liz Phair – Why Can’t I Breathe

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 2:21 am by LynxLee

Gotta love the O.C. This video swims through the beginning of something new and unexpected of Ryan and Taylor. A little Déjà vu here in my life now. Tis’ the tease.. it’s comically addictive.

Why can’t I breathe whenever I think about you
Why can’t I speak whenever I talk about you
It’s inevitable, it’s a fact that we’re gonna get down to it
So tell me
Why can’t I breathe whenever I think about you

Get a load of me, get a load of you
Walkin’ down the street, and I hardly know you
It’s just like we were meant to be

Holding hands with you when we’re out at night
Got a girlfriend, you say it isn’t right
And I’ve got someone waiting too

What if this is just the beginning
We’re already wet, and we’re gonna go swimming

Why can’t I breathe whenever I think about you
Why can’t I speak whenever I talk about you
It’s inevitable, it’s a fact that we’re gonna get down to it
So tell me
Why can’t I breathe whenever I think about you

Isn’t this the best part of breakin’ up
Finding someone else you can’t get enough of
Someone who wants to be with you too

It’s an itch we know we are gonna scratch
Gonna take a while for this egg to hatch
But wouldn’t it be beautiful

Here we go, we’re at the beginning
We haven’t fucked yet, but my heads spinning

Why can’t I breathe whenever I think about you
Why can’t I speak whenever I talk about you
It’s inevitable, it’s a fact that we’re gonna get down to it
So tell me
Why can’t I breathe whenever I think about you

High enough for you to make me wonder
Where it’s goin’
High enough for you to pull me under
Somethin’s growin’
out of this that we can control
Baby I am dyin’

Why can’t I breathe whenever I think about you
Why can’t I speak whenever I talk about you

Why can’t I breathe whenever I think about you
Why can’t I speak whenever I talk about you
It’s inevitable, it’s a fact that we’re gonna get down to it
So tell me
Why can’t I breathe whenever I think about you
