Just A Feeling

current favorite song.

Because Payphone is too mainstream and Just a feeling is so underrated :p

she cries, “This is more than goodbye. When I look into your eyes, you’re not even there”

Adam Levine’s voice…. UGH. Makes me wanna surgically remove my tear ducts :'(((( and the song is just TOO SAD 😦
Thank you Anne V for breaking his heart, inspiring him to create songs like this.. :p

S M A S H

Today, I was extra happy 🙂
I finally finished downloading America’s new tv series, SMASH.
I was actually one of the few people who waited until it was aired in live telly. I mean, we don’t have NBC here in the Philippines it’s not like a I have a choice. I found out about the show because of @MsLeaSalonga‘s and @FrancoMabanta‘s tweets. Apparently, the two have seen the show’s screening weeks before the it officially started (Feb. 6, 2012).

Anyway, it was totally worth the wait. I actually refused to read anything about SMASH before it aired because I didn’t want anyone else’s opinion affecting mine. I love Katharine McPhee. Always have. My niece sings “Connected” everyday from Barbie and the opening song of SMASH’s pilot ep was “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” I used to play that on the piano for my Tatay (my grandfather) when he was still alive :’)

My thoughts about the show?
It was a total win. Finally I’d get to rest from hearing Rachel Berry’s voice. Not that I hate Glee. I love Glee. Rachel just annoys me.

“If there were glee there would be no Smash. They paved the way for us. They made music in primetime successful, But we are a different show. We are a drama, and a bit more grown up.”
— Debra Messing on E! News

I’m just glad there’s another musical series .

I was so psyched to see a show about Broadway, shot in New York, and cast with stage actors like Brian D’Arcy James, Megan Hilty and Christian Borle, alongside famous tv favorite, Debra Messing (damn I’ve missed her! She’s really good) and of course Katharine McPhee! I didn’t expect her acting to be really good. It was even better than the movies I’ve seen her in it.

So far, SMASH has got me hooked (despite its discussed flaws) and I’m really sticking around. I freakin love the songs which some are original, the whole production, and the drama. In fact, this is the first time that I love the archenemy. I can’t seem to decide which side to take.

Smash is bringing out the love for musical theater I never knew I had.

And because I love the show, I’m leaving you with my favorite song from the pilot ep 😉

By the way,

if you’re not already watching Smash,
you need to be!

12:51 by @Krissyonfire & @erickaxx – a blog post of my current favorite song

– Late post since I was out of town. I found out that the MV was already released on Krissy’s tumblr last Feb. 1st. Since then I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve played the song and watched the video.
Whole day, everyday, before sleeping, upon waking up. NO JOKE.
I also downloaded their album and I always skip their covers to their original songs. HAHA #truth

LYRICS (disclaimer: I just copied this on Krissy’s blog: Krissyonfire.tumblr.com)

VERSE 1

I’m scrolling through my cell phone for the twentieth time today

Reading that text you sent me again, though I memorized it any way

It was an afternoon in December when it reminded you of the day

When we bumped into each other but you didn’t say ‘hi’ cause I looked away

And maybe that was the biggest mistake of my life,

And maybe I haven’t moved on since that night

CHORUS

Cause it’s 12:51 and I thought my feelings were gone,

But I’m lying on my bed

Thinking of you again, and the moon shines so bright

But I gotta dry these tears tonight

Cause you’re moving on and I’m not that strong

to hold on, any longer

VERSE 2

Then I saw you with her

Didn’t think you’d find another

and my world just seemed to crash

I shouldn’t have thought that this would last

And maybe that was the biggest mistake of my life,

And maybe i haven’t moved on since that night

CHORUS

Cause it’s 12:51 and I thought my feelings were gone,

But I’m lying on my bed

Thinking of you again, and the moon shines so bright

But I gotta dry these tears tonight

Cause you’re moving on and I’m not that strong

to hold on, any longer

BRIDGE

As the sky outside gets brighter

And my eyes begin to tire

I’m slowly drowning and memories of him

And I know it shouldn’t matter

As my heart begins to shatter

I’m left to wonder just how it should’ve been

CHORUS

Cause it’s 12:51 and I thought my feelings were gone,

But I’m lying on my bed

I’m not thinking of you again, and the moon shines so bright

But I gotta dry these tears tonight

Cause you’re moving on and I’m not that strong

to hold on…

Cause I’ll prove you wrong

That I can move on through this song

I’m so much stronger oo

If I wasn’t able to read their twitter (@Krissyonfire @erickaxx) updates while shooting this, I wouldn’t have thought this was shot in the Philippines. I am Über proud that these ladies came from my country! :’))
And because I first watched this in the middle of the night with headphones and in full volume, I actually cried. HAHA
Even if I’m not in an emo state, I felt the song.

If by chance Krissy and Ericka would read this, I hope you guys got the idea of this post –that I actually love you and your music and definitely gonna support you all the way as you soar high.

And SO! Let us all help them and vote for the 12:51 MV on myxph.com let’s get that #1 spot! ((((((:

Hope you guys enjoyed.

Bisous,

Tryna fill the gaping hole in my chest w/ lots of ( @edsheeran ) music

When I saw this video last October, I only clicked the play button because of Rupert Grint. I gotta admit that. But when I listened to the song, it has been my lullaby and became my forever LSS. Beautiful, beautiful song.

note: Rupert isn’t the one singing. He’s just acting. The artist beyond this amazing talent is Ed Sheeran.

Then I tried to click the suggested links and without second thoughts, downloaded his “+” album

+ Album cover

You only have 3 reasons to love and start listening to him:

  1. He’s English.
  2. He’s 20 years old who writes his own songs and waaaaaaaaaay BETTER than Justin Bieber. I’m sorry but, haters gonna hate.
  3. He supports Snow Patrol.

So Imma leave you with my favorite song next to Lego House.

If you guys start to listen to him, don’t forget to let me now what you think! 😉

BISOUS,

NICA
