Overnight knick-knacks

I'm stuck at PhySci Anx 202 lab for some pseudo-thesis-matters with two co-workers seriously working. XD. It’s very silent. I need some noise. So be it. Noise. Here we go.

Ingrid Michaelson – How We Love

Human Again. This is another of those well-written hits that, well, basically talks about how we love, as the title suggests. You have to have to check these lyrics: We hate the rain when it fills our shoes/ But how we love when it washes our cars/ We love to love when it fills up the room/ But when it leaves, oh, we’re cursing the stars. True enough. We got to enjoy love when it’s on our favor. 1.5

Kidda – The Whistler

This RT-exclusive is the current chart-topper in 99.5 RT’s RT 30 Countdown. Another love-at-first-hear-case. Perfect for moving-on-problems. Effortlessly brilliant. 1.25 

Train – Drive By

‘Drive By’ is the first single from the forthcoming Train album California 37 to be produced by Espionage and Butch Waler. The familiar guitar plunk, percussive punch, and tuneful Pat Monahan amp is just brilliant. Though the lyrics are a bit darker, the melody sounded light enough forging the hit to appear sunlit brighter. 2.0

Taylor Swift & Civil Wars – Safe And Sound

I deeply admire Taylor Swift for this record. It’s quite a huge jump from the usual sweet Taylor sound to a considerably darker genre. This The Hunger Games soundtrack explores the brilliancy and adventurous Taylor Swift vocals intermingling with sparse smattering guitars, ominous drums, rolled into a whole desperate, dramatic aura. 1.75

John Legend feat. Ludacris – Tonight (Best You Ever Had)

I find this Think Like A Man soundtrack likable enough despite the oozing smoothness it sounds in the presence of Ludacris. After all, it’s John Legend. 2.75

Snow Patrol – Called Out In The Dark

This was released late last year from the band’s sixth studio album Fallen Empires but this single still haunts me hugely until now. The refreshing, sweet and quirky feel engrossed in the vid never failed to give me a sweet laugh. 1.5

1:43 – Sa Isang Sulyap Mo

I hate to admit this, but this single forces me to smile. Always. XD. 2.5

Gotye feat. Kimbra – Somebody that I used to know

‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ is a hit off Making Mirrors from the Australia’s Belgium-born Gotye featuring Kimbra of New Zealand. It’s currently at #16 on Billboard Hot 100 and so far reached the top spot in 14 other countries including UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Belgium.

I’m perfectly hands down for the achingly memorable tune, exceedingly emotional lyrics, mesmerizing playful vocals, anthemic synths and syncopated claps all rolled into a powerful touchy, lovely, meaningful song. Bonus points for its coincidental correlation with my current life. 1.0
