[Music Monday] Stay by Lisa Loeb

Because we all need a earworm to kickstart the week! Plus, Monday is the only day in the week that starts with M. I’ll try to post non-Kpop songs occasionally :P

I was still thinking about what to write for this week. Especially since I don’t feel like recommending another K-Pop song. Heh. Switched on Kiss92 (which I love but it’s not compatible with my work laptop :() and this song came up. Somehow, a few seconds before it came on, I knew it will come on. Do I make sense?

Anyways! Back during uni days, during my dark period (as I like to call it), before Kiss92 came on the scene…I like to listen to Class95 quite a bit while I work on projects late into the night. And this song kept playing and playing. I could sing parts of the song even before I realised what the lyrics were about. When I did find out the entire lyrics, I fell in love with it. I kept playing it over and over and over again on my iPod.

this is definitely a #oldiebutgoodie. the MV is very old school though.

I don’t understand if you really care,
I’m only hearing negative: no, no, no (bad)

You said that I was naive,
And I thought that I was strong.
I thought, “hey, I can leave, I can leave.”
Oh but now I know that I was wrong, ’cause I missed you.

This song describes my situation back then so aptly. Looking at the lyrics, I can’t help but feel a tad surreal. Dang. I was that stupid in the past.

Ahwell. happy monday, folks! (:

[Music Monday] 十萬毫升淚水 by 蔡健雅 Tanya Chua

This song was the ending song for Channel 8’s show last year. I could hum the tune after 1.5weeks but I didn’t listen listen to the lyrics until DK posted it on Twitter.

It’s really a meaningful song. I love the entire lyrics. Yes, it’s very emo but it applies to life. Even listening to it now makes me tear abit. However, it does makes me feel a little better too. It’s therapeutic I think.

Not going to say too much, but enjoy the song (:

满意了吗 你究竟有完没完
你烦不烦 总考验我多勇敢
有那么难 那么幸福和美满
我不贪婪 只求多些夜晚 不鼻酸 不孤单
我想要的快乐很简单 你都不管

有完没完 我已无条件投降
我要归还 向你借来的勇敢
我不野蛮 不属于我的美满
都不贪婪 只求一到夜晚 有期盼 有陪伴

Till next week.
