Justin Timberlake Says it Better

[Verse 1]
Said all I want from you is to see you tomorrow
And every tomorrow, maybe you’ll let me borrow your heart
And is it too much to ask for every Sunday
And while we’re at it, throw in every other day to start

I know people make promises all the time
Then they turn right around and break them
When someone cuts your heart open with a knife, and you’re bleeding
But I could be that guy to heal it over time
And I won’t stop until you believe it
‘Cause baby you’re worth it

[Chorus]
So don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me
‘Cause you might fuck around and find your dreams come true, with me
Spend all your time and your money just to find out that my love was free
So don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
It’s not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me

[Verse 2]
Now how about I’d be the last voice you hear tonight?
And every other night for the rest of the nights that there are
Every morning I just wanna see you staring back at me
‘Cause I know that’s a good place to start

I know people make promises all the time
Then they turn right around and break them
When someone cuts your heart open with a knife, and you’re bleeding
Don’t you know that I could be that guy to heal it over time
And I won’t stop until you believe it
‘Cause baby you’re worth it

[Chorus]
So don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me
‘Cause you might fuck around and find your dreams come true, with me
Spend all your time and your money just to find out that my love was free
So don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
It’s not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
It’s not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
Not such a bad thing to fall in love with me
(Not such a bad thing to fall in love with me)

No I won’t fill your mind
With broken promises and wasted time
And if you fall, you’ll always land right in these arms
These arms of mine

[Chorus]
Don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me
‘Cause you might fuck around and find your dreams come true, with me
Spend all your time and your money just to find out that my love was free
So don’t act like it’s a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
It’s not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
Not such a bad thing to fall in love with me

Musical Monday: Lana Del Rey and Other Disasters

Dear Wonderful Follower,

tumblr_n2ovctw66E1tse7q1o1_500

(I know it’s not Monday, but this post is about Musical Monday.)

So I don’t know if you noticed (you probably didn’t), but I have been neglecting posting anything in Musical Monday (which is a day dedicated to “review” a music album and introduce you to it; I promise I have a good taste in music). “Why”, you say. Well, truth of the matter is, I am a little (?) OCD and before doing those posts for you I have to listen to the whole album religiously, dissect its lyrics, read a few official reviews and a few user reviews, think about it, and then write about in a very precise and eloquent fashion, which requires a lot of time and revisions. But, I am starting to rethink this tedious  process because music is like art, it is not about what it is, it’s about what it makes you feel, or something like that! Also, I want to introduce you to many great artists and bands because I know how can music revive the soul, and inspire the mind. And isn’t just so great to find THAT one album that you listen to on repeat for months, and then years later when you hear it again, you’re suddenly struck with a vision of younger-you with all its memories, emotions, great triumphs. And really, really stupid mistakes, and at this moment you either laugh or weep.

So enough with the rambling! Next up, I am going to be featuring my home girl, Lana Del Rey, because, really, writing about Lana Del Rey is like a rite of passage to any female music blogger. Oh, did I mention she’s is totally haunting!

To give you a little sneak peak I am also going to be featuring: The 1975, their song “Chocolate” is totally addicting. And Gabriella  Alpin, London Grammar ……….. and many, many more. Stay Tuned!

P.S. I can’t believe that I reached a 1,000 (A THOUSAND) followers. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! You’re the BOMB.COM!

Love,

-Christina

P.S. Sorry for that misleading title!

Music Monday: Birdy by Birdy (2011)

birdy-extralarge_1329849215292Classification: Folk, Indie, Female Vocalist, Singer-Sonwriter, Piano, British
Release Date: November 4, 2011

Haunting, touching, and beautiful are adjectives that come to mind when describing fifteen years old British singer Birdy’s first debut, studio album, Birdy. I enjoyed the album very much and I know that It will become one of those albums that I will always listen to and appreciate. At first I didn’t have a strong impression about the album since my ears had to adjust to take in something so beautiful and pure. So, if you’re experiencing the same reaction, I would suggest listening to the album a few times before making your verdict.
Birdy’s voice is full of pain, beauty, and determination and the fact that she’s only fifteen years old makes her voice even real special. Birdy will touch your soul and that’s why I feel like it’s more of a Winter-y album, that goes better with hot coffee and rainy days.
The entire album is a collection of songs covered, or rather reinvented by Birdy, as she totally transforms each song (for the better imo) and makes it her own.
Give it a listen, you won’t be disappointed.

Favorite Songs:

. 1901: Sounds like sparkling water, river’s stream, and ocean waves.
. Young Blood: “Fall back in love eventually”.
. People Help the People: beautiful and full of soul. “If you’re home-sick, give your hand, and I’ll hold it”.
.White Winter Hymnal: Angelic, and perfect for Winter!

P.s. Sorry this was supposed to be posted yesterday. lol
