Just a quick note: since I've just moved into my new home, I just need a few days & then regular posting shall be resumed. Look out for daily updates!
Thanks for your patience.
Hola on encore, music-minglers!
This weekend has been very relazing for me: filled with great music, good company in the form of beer, hot pockets &, of course, my lover, Mr. Icecream. How's your weekend been?
I told you I'd bring you another Mishmash update, so, here it is. During the week I'll try to do a Soundtrack update (got any request or suggestions?) and perhaps something more as well.
If restriction's limiting you, grab the ones with the !
Deb Talan - Forgiven !
Remember that first touch? Take that first blush, the captured sweetness of that and put it into words and music & you'd have this acoustic song. One of the sweetest (thankfully withstanding the lovey-dovey) songs I've heard in a long, long time. Adorable without being too sweet, longing without being sad.
Europe - Carrie
A classic rock-ballad (slash anthem) that never quite suspends the poodle-do's, but provides the perfect and apt melody for a bonfire's company.
Jamie Cullum - Twentysomething
I know that neo-pop-y jazz is not everyone’s favorite cup of tea, but really, anyone should be in the mood for some cleverly-witted and well-written fun-spinning song that reminds you of who you are, who you might be & who you’re not – all to the good tuning of a playful Englishman with on-stage & on-singing jitters.
Rosie Thomas - Farewell !
The title of the song says it all: the departure which you can feel more in your hoping heart than anywhere your eyes can find; touching that rain-splattered window & feeling the chill of it and wishing you could feel anything else inside, wishing that your mind was not aligned your mood's way... beautiful sadness, tender trepidation.
Lifehouse - Somewhere in between
For some unknown reason, I will always consider Lifehouse as a bit neo-oldskool. This, apart from their other calm track (with the amazing build-up) is the first slower song of theirs I heard. Given, I was in a major The Matrix phase at the time; the lyrics what is real and just a dream? did nothing to NOT drag me in. Slow, afternoon-hazy and just simply pleasant.
Richard Marx - Right here waiting
There’s a quote that says “I like all kinds of music, but I prefer the things that last.” With that, some songs never age, and this one is a true example of that. Sad and heartbroken, it’s that final promise before the phone hangs up at the other end of the line, a thousand miles away…the wish that one day, everything will be alright.
The Sounds – Seven days a week !
Enough with the pathetic emotional crap already, right? Ge me something pumpin’, something floor-jumping and tantalizing with pop-synth-y rock and give it to me now! Well, here you go. Kudos.
It's a wonder some times, with the music one seems to have lying around, hidden in your computer or perhaps in your iPod or other mp3 player. It's lying right there, waiting to be played but somehow shuffle always seems to pull a nasty on it & somehow ignore it. Someway, somehow & finally, however, you'll hear a song you didn't even know you had that will make you go "ooh" or "aah".
For me, Griffin House was one of those bands.
Loved by the Supernatural star Jared Padalecki, this band lands, if described, somewhere between Oasis/Five for fighting/Jeff Buckley which is just a good of a mix as it sounds. Just softer. With a tender indie-meets-rock vibe to them, they have melodious tunes & a soft approach that sparks your curiosity & leaves you listening for more. Check them out!
// Looking in my eyes what I'm going through
Even if we change and fall out of
You hold my hand and it's better than love
Save me from myself
You got my back when I need help
It's no one else in the world
You will always be my girl //
