Something New, Something Old. Part 2.

To continue the list of music in my playlist. here’s my lineup of songs that I listen most of the time.

By the way both are actually kinda old songs. hehe


Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve

I fell in love immediately when I heard this song after watching Cruel Intentions starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe in high school, performed by British alternative band The Verve. This song serves as the lead track on their album Urban Hymns.

Seriously this song sets my mood. Imagine the combination of violins and alternative music. Eargasm! Hehehe.

“Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life.
Trying to make ends meet, try to find somebody then you die”


Lux Æterna by Clint Mansell

This was originally composed by Clint Mansell for the movie Requiem for A Dream Starring Jennifer Connelly and my look-alike Jared Leto (haha). If you try to listen to the song, what runs through your head? To me, I felt like doing something heroic and sometimes escaping to my fear and mistakes.

Weird right?


salamat nga pala sa pagfollow sa akin. yung 100th follower ko ay may award pakiclaim na lang sa email mo po sir. hehehe. :P
