Ear Candy — All Nostalgia All the Time

I have done an Ear Candy post in a very very long time, but this one is very appropos of today. And it isn’t very nostalgia-y, being relatively new…but…umm…yeah.

[video: Adam Lambert’s “Whataya Want From Me”, he is having a very emotional looking fight with another “him” dressed in a suit who appears to get frustrated with the first him, in a very Spartan apartment. Interspersed with scenes of Lambert and a band performing and scenes of him in a fancy car leaving shows. The scenes are very intense as one Lambert even packs and looks ready to leave, and the other seems to be upset and possibly grieving his leaving. The camera angle at the end, and Lambert’s smile indicates that possibly the other one has come back to maybe try to “work it out”. Or, that is how I am/have usually read it.]

Lyrics:

Hey, slow it down
What do you want from me
What do you want from me
Yeah, I’m afraid
What do you want from me
What do you from me
There might have been a time
I would give myself away
(Ooh) Once upon a time
I didn’t give a damn
But now here we are
So what do you want from me

What do you want from me
Just don’t give up
I’m workin’ it out
Please don’t give in
I won’t let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around
Hey, what do you want from me
What do you want from me

Yeah, it’s plain to see
that baby you’re beautiful
And it’s nothing wrong with you
It’s me – I’m a freak
but thanks for lovin’ me
Cause you’re doing it perfectly

There might have been a time
When I would let you step away
I wouldn’t even try but I think
you could save my life

Just don’t give up
I’m workin’ it out
Please don’t give in
I won’t let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around
Hey, what do you want from me
What do you want from me

Just don’t give up on me
I won’t let you down
No, I won’t let you down

So

Just don’t give up
I’m workin’ it out
Please don’t give in
I won’t let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around
Hey, what do you want from me

Just don’t give up
I’m workin’ it out
Please don’t give in
I won’t let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around
Hey, whataya want from me
(whataya want from me)
Whataya want from me
whataya want from me

Ear Candy — All Nostalgia All the Time

The Wonder Girls were on SYTYCD, so I hear, or see, since Angry Asian Man was so cool enough to post this video.

Love this song.

Enjoy!

Monday Random Ten

I found my external hard drive!

Taking this idea from Natalia, I think we need some fluff today (because Mondays need more fluff than Fridays).

If you aren’t familiar w/ the “Random Ten” concept (and I am sure I don’t do it completely right), I think you just turn on your music app of choice, and blog the first ten songs that play. Easy as pie.

Mmm. Pie.

I also dedicate this MRT to Anna, who was having a crappy day, and to me, who was having a crappy week last week. I can do that, right? It is my blog, after all…

W/o further ado:

  1. They Might Be Giants — Birdhouse In Your Soul
  2. Alice Cooper — School’s Out
  3. MC 몽 (Mong) — Lucky Man
  4. Santana, Featuring Dido — Feels Like Fire
  5. Flogging Molly — Seven Deadly Sins
  6. Richie Ren — 看过来 (Kan Guo Lai)
  7. The Who — Won’t Get Fooled Again
  8. Gorillaz — Clint Eastwood
  9. The Bangles — Eternal Flame
  10. Smashing Pumpkins — Apples + Oranjes

Bonus, I happen to have the video and lyrics (in the pinyin Romanization) to the Richie Ren video, which is one of The Kid’s favorite songs ever: (more…)

Just picked The Kid up from the bus.  This has been on my mind since.  Enjoy!

 

Ear Candy–All Nostalgia All the Time

Greetings from The Land of the Morning Calm!  안녕하세요!

 

While I am uploading almost 500 pictures from our trip, and trying to get all my dashboards and social network things back into English (all my adverts are in Korean also, but I find that amusing!), please enjoy this blast from the past, and my personal favorite En Vogue song EVAH!!1!!

Ear Candy–All Nostalgia All the Time

The Darkness.

Don’t just pretend like you are going to watch these.

This is one fucking awesome rock video.

Ear Candy — All Nostalgia All the Time

The movie Pleasantville was one of my favorite films the year it came out.  I have liked Jeff Daniels for a long time (or as Jax calls him, “Rich Uncle Jeff”.  He’s a good guy to the people of Chelsea, MI), and it is one of the first movies in which I remember seeing Reese Whitherspoon.

My favorite part was the ending montage and closing credits, which featured a (IMHO) wonderful remake of John Lennon’s “Across the Universe”, performed by Fiona Apple.  If I didn’t know better I would think that Lennon had written this song knowing somehow that she would do it some day, b/c she really does it beautifully.  I have yet to find it for download on iTunes, but someday I will.  This is by far one of my favorite Lennon songs (along w/ “Imagine”, which was the nursery theme I had when The Kid was born…too cute!).  

Enjoy.

“Across the Universe”, from the movie Pleasantville, as performed by Fiona Apple.
