To All Those Heartliners

Lately I’ve been listening to what I supposed are those non-mainstream artists. Artists that didn’t break their leg as severe as Rihanna, Jay-Z, Bruno Mars and the likes. All thanks to the credits at the bottom right on every ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ routine.

Those who captured my heart and spin it in a such unraveling knots are,

Joshua Radin

He got me on ‘Sundrenched World’

I can’t get to bed 
But I’m really tired 
The things in my head 
You used to admire 
In your sundrenched world 

The Postal Service

When you enjoy songs from Owl City, then you’re gonna love this band. The District People Sleeps at Night,

You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex
A stranger with your door key explaining that I am just visiting
And I am finally seeing 
Why I was the one worth leaving

And these are the songs from ‘Up In The Air’ that had me sighing for the umpteenth time,


Elliot Smith

Angel in The Snow, which translated best as a song about a severe addiction toward drugs.

I’d say you make a perfect 
Angel in the snow
All crushed out on the way you are
Better stop before it goes too far
Don’t you know that I love you?

Charles Atlas

The song ‘Genova’ pure background instrumental, I swear this is my one and only meditation-sort-of song

Random songs from the old times,

Damien Rice

‘Cannonball’ taught me another version of being alive, the one which usually hurts.a.lot.

stones, taught me to fly,
love, it taught me to lie,
life, it taught me to die,
so its not hard to fall,
when you float like a cannonball.

And another one from Damien Rice, ‘Unplayed Piano’

Maybe it’s not that easy
Or maybe it’s not that hard
Maybe they could release me
Let the people decide 
I’ve got nothing to hide 
I’ve done nothing wrong 
So why’ve i been here so long? 

Radwimps

One of my best gal IRL, introduced me with a Japanese band called Rawimps and their ‘Me Me She’ song. It’s not a wonder I almost cried on the lyrics.

We made a promise, right?
“Let’s be together until we are 100 years old.”
I didn’t expect the 101st year would come so soon.

John Lennon

John Lennon’s ‘Beautiful Boy’ a song he dedicated for his son, Sean. It’s really a sweet song that reminds me of my Dad.

Before you cross the street
Take my hand
Life is what happens to you
While you’re busy making other plans
