A Fine Frenzy – Lifesize

I listened this song on How I Met Your Mother, Final Episode Season 5. It was splendidly chosen. Such a calming voice & sweet melodies.

The song was a soundtrack for the best ending ever on amazing quotes : “Kids, you can ask the universe for signs for all you want..But ultimately we only see what we wanna see,…When we’re ready to see it..”

Well, the song is about, I think it’s like, we all want to be great in the eyes of someone. It’s about how people feel when they are in love, they have someone in the world who sees them in a different light. But, It’s more than just about love, it’s also about feeling good about yourself, knowing you are someone special. It’s just so fantastical, isn’t it?

“Larger than lifesize, wondersome
Great in the eyes of someone”
“Larger than lifesize, wondersome
Great in the eyes of someone”

Love Spit Love – Am I Wrong?

I’ve been listening for this song for quite a while for now. And, I really feel that I can relate closely with it. I think this song is a sad song, a bittersweet song, but it’s also a little optimistic. He’s letting go of something that needs to be let go of, it seems. And, he’s accepted that it’s over, it’s for the best. But, it’s still sad to have to leave it. Right? Am I close? or, Am I wrong?

I mean, it is about someone who is confused with life. This person is turning away from what they once believed in and trying to find new meaning in life. Well, It focuses on the uncertainty that we all feel sometimes.. The lyrics are quite powerful, such as : “Lay the blame on luck”, “You let life get in your way..”, etc. I think, We’ve ever done that in our life, don’t we..?? And, not to mention that the ballads melody is totally addictive..!!

When I hear this, my mind keep telling myself trying not to hold on to long, that can leave deep scars, that may not heal. Try to be strong for yourself, cause I am worth it. What I’ve been going through right now (whether career terms, love, etc), I know that these will all make sense some day..

Goodbye, lay the blame on luck..
Goodbye, Lay the blame on luck..
Goodbye, Lay the blame on luck..

Yep, Enjoy the song & video below.. Although, the song itself is way better from the video, but I hope you can enjoy it as well as me.. 🙂

Goo Goo Dolls – Let Love In

Goo Goo Dolls Let Love In

John Rzeznik as we know,
or at least myself, know that he is a lyrical genius..
What he feels, what he has been through,

what he expresses, is what We have all been through..

The writing here is great,
with a lot of hopefulness
to counteract the underlying sadness..

Emotional and poetic, but at the same time,
it’s quite predictable and safe..
Just like when you felt, you know,
Everything means more now than words can explain..”
This is just my opinion..

Well, if you watch Serial TV – Chuck,
then you’ll know this video, see below.
The video was taken from Chuck & Sarah,

at Eps 1.04 Chuck vs The Wookie..
Hope you Enjoy it..

GreenDay – Wake Me Up When September Ends

The song makes me think of September 11…Cause, It says September…
Although the song originally was centered around Billie Joe Armstrongs’ personal tragedy, Samuel Bayer created his own personal vision..
His interpretation is brought to life with both power and restraint,
and is likely to provoke tears, a visceral human response to pain..

But, anyways that’s what the song is about..You know, just like “this is life“,
and I think they portray that extremely well through this song…

They decided to make music video (you can see below) about the Iraq war because of its had a big effect on everyone..
It is fleshed out by images of young romance and graphic battle scenes.
The end of the mini-film’s story is ambiguous,
and this ambiguity gives “Wake Me Up When September Ends” much of its power..

For me, this song is the best form Green Day, ever..!!
This songs makes me think about how I miss the past of my life,
and at the same time It makes me look at the future and wonder..
Besides, a lot of things happen in my life in September…
My birthday, my thesis seminar, and also my final test of my bachelor thesis, etc…

Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars

Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars Cover

Yeah, you know, I’m very big fans of Snow Patrol..
And this song is one of , my all time favorite song..

I think the thing I love about this song is that it’s asking a question.
We can see ourselves asking that question.
But the desolate beauty of it, I think means we already know the answer to the question is no..

Well, the lyrics are beautiful. The music was simple, but deep, and enjoyable..
It make me feel so nostalgic…
This was played on the last episode of Season 2 of Grey’s Anatomy, though..
Ever since, I just can’t get this song out of my head.
It’s probably one of the simplest yet rawest love songs I’ve ever heard..
This song stuck in my head, with every single word he says…

Seether – Rise Above This

Take the light and darken everything around me,
Call the clouds, and listen closely, I’m lost without you.

Call your name everyday,
When I feel so helpless.
I’ve fallen down, but I’ll rise above this (rise above this).

Hate your mind, regrets are better left unspoken.
For all we know this void will grow,
An everything’s in vain, distressing you though it leaves me open,
Feels so right that I’ll end this all before it gets me.
