This Is Christmas

Have we lost the reason that we celebrate each year?

What is Christmas,
If there never was a Savior,
Wrapped in a manger?
What is Christmas,
Without Christ?

thanks to BECRecordings for the video

Perfect song to remind us of the meaning of Christmas.

Artist: Kutless
Album: O Come All Ye Faitful

Do They Know It's Christmas?

Originally sung in 1984 by Band Aid, a group of artist to raise fund for the famine in Eutopia. 

But I'll feature the version of Glee here.

Christ was born and it's enough reason to celebrate. That's why Christmas is the time for love. The time for giving, even in our own little ways.

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

Sung by Jackson 5, made me remember Michael Jackson in his cute videos as a kid.

thanks obdiane for the video

Should we continue with the "Santa" tradition?

For me, believing in Santa makes the Christmas celebration more meaningful. I wouldn't want for my kid to miss the experience. Even now I want to believe in Santa, that if I've been good I would be rewarded.

My Grown Up Christmas List

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And everyone would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end

thanks for bietetolentino for the video

This is my grown up Christmas list...what is yours?

Sana Ngayong Pasko

The first Christmas song featured here yet it's kinda on the sad note, sorry it's just how I feel now that I am celebrating Christmas away from home. I kept reminding myself that Christmas isn't about me, but let me be just this one time (or a few more on the senti mode).

Sana Ngayong Pasko originally sung by Ariel Rivera, has a lot of new rendition but I still prefer the original. 

thanks fatboi1965 for the video

For those who cannot understand the lyrics, it's about the longing to be with your love ones during Christmas.

Jason Mraz: Special Acoustic Evening with Toca Rivera

Jason Mraz will have another concert in the Phillipines TODAY October 30, 2011 at Araneta Coliseum in Cubao. His last concert in the country was 2 years ago.

If I were only in Phils, I would definitely watch this! I absolutely adore his songs.

Metallica Live in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi

I got an invite and a discount code for the Metallica World Magnetic Tour '11 in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.

Why I won't go?

1. It's on a weekday night and Yas Island is around 1 and a half drive from our place.
2. I got the email on the same day of the concert, I could have made prior arrangement or feigned illness on the next day (but I already did it today)
3. Though I like Metallica I'm not a huge fan.

Music & ME Planning Stage

The problem with a new niche blog is you have to think of what and how it would be different from the rest. And more so if you have several blogs that your post jumbles up. But “the want” outscores any other problems or negativity. So here I am working on new themes and memes to make my Music & ME blog something old, new, borrowed and different. I told you my mind is jumbled.

I will make my Music&Meme every Wednesday because I will join Music Monday which will obviously be every Monday.

I thought of some themes and hope to follow

Sunday – Oldies But Goodies, songs from the 60s & 70s (and even earlier!)
Monday – Rhythm & Blues
Tuesday – Hard Rock
Wednesday – OPM, Original Pilipino Music (love your own mga kababayan ko!)
Thursday – Love Songs
Friday – New Wave
Saturday – FreeStyle, anything goes

I also have another meme in mind, A Shuffle A Day. I’ll put my iPod on Shuffle and the first thing that plays would be featured. A set of standard questions to be answered like how it relates to your mood, etc. As I’ve said it still is in the conceptualizing stage.

music&MEme: Never On A Sunday

Another oldie entry 1960s, I always hear this on a Sunday Oldies But Goodies radio channel. And it kinda struck and stuck on my mind.

But Sunday really is a day of rest and prayers, but here they were talking about kissing.

uploaded by xiaochien

Oh, you can kiss me on a Monday a Monday a Monday
is very very good
Or you can kiss me on a Tuesday a Tuesday a Tuesday
in fact I wish you would
Or you can kiss me on a Wednesday a Thursday a
Friday and Saturday is best
But never ever on a Sunday a Sunday a Sunday
cause that's my day of rest

Most anyday you can be my guest
Anyday you say but my day of rest
Just name the day that you like the best
Only stay away on my day of rest

Oh, you can kiss me on a cool day a hot day a wet day
which ever one you choose
Or try to kiss me on a grey day a May day a pay day
and see if I refuse

And if you make it on a bleake day a freak day or a week day
Well you can be my guest
But never ever on a Sunday a Sunday the one day
I need a little rest
Oh, you can kiss me on a week day a week day a week day
the day to be my guest

music&MEme: Waiting for Wednesday

I am waiting for Wednesday too! because the next day would be Thursday which is our last workday for the week.

This is a catchy song about goodbyes, at least not the same old sentimental song right?
Waiting for Wednesday by Lisa Loeb
uploaded by lisaloebshrine

Waiting for Wednesday, my stomach doesn't hurt enough
Pain always is the sign.
Waiting for Wednesday, no proof of mine exists,
So I don't have to take it back.
Don't want to show you good-bye,
Show you good-bye.
Show you good-bye.
Show you good-bye.
But you're waiting for Wednesday.
Waiting for Wednesday.
Waiting for Wednesday, I pray you'll put me on the spot.
I do believe you, that you'll love me that you'll leave me.
Don't want to show you good-bye,
Show you good-bye.
What will I do when you come near to me?
You'll put me on the spot.
You've been doing this a long, long time,
Not that you're better than me,
But that you do it a lot.
Now I'm waiting for Wednesday,
Waiting for Wednesday,
Waiting for Wednesday,
I'm waiting for Wednesday.
I'm gonna show you good-bye,
Show you good-bye,
Show you good-bye,
Show you good-bye.
Now I'm waiting for Wednesday,
You're back from out of town,
the West is dry, your mind is clear,
And I don't want to be here,
I don't want to be here,
I don't want to be here,
To show you good-bye.
And I'm waiting for Wednesday,
Waiting for Wednesday,
I'm waiting for Wednesday, to show you good-bye.
I don't want to be here, to show you good-bye.
Waiting for Wednesday.
I don't want to be here.
Waiting for Wednesday, to show you good-bye,
To show you good-bye!

music&MEme: Tuesday Afternoons

What do you do on a tuesday afternoon?

Join music&MEme!

Tuesday Afternoons by Moody Blues

uploaded by eaglerocktv

Tuesday, afternoon,
I'm just beginning to see,
Now I'm on my way,
It doesn't matter to me,
Chasing the clouds away.

Something, calls to me,
The trees are drawing me near,
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh.

I'm looking at myself, reflections of my mind,
It's just the kind of day to leave myself behind,
So gently swaying thru the fairy-land of love,
If you'll just come with me and see the beauty of

Tuesday afternoon.
Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday, afternoon,
I'm just beginning to see,
Now I'm on my way,
It doesn't matter to me,
Chasing the clouds away.

Something, calls to me,
The trees are drawing me near,
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh.

music&MEme: Manic Monday

music&MEme – Days of the Week

I will play by myself (for the meantime), I’ll post a song each day with the title corresponding to the day of the week. Like for today it’s Monday so I’ll have Manic Monday! If anyone of you pick this meme, by all means copy and paste or post it on your blogs. Just link and leave a message, thanks!

I particularly like this song esp the part where I wish monday is a sunday.

Manic Monday by Bangles

video uploaded by oberins

Six o'clock already
I was just in the middle of a dream
I was kissin' Valentino
By a crystal blue Italian stream
But I can't be late
'Cause then I guess I just won't get paid
These are the days
When you wish your bed was already made

It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my funday
My I don't have to runday
It's just another manic Monday

Have to catch an early train
Got to be to work by nine
And if I had an air-o-plane
I still couldn't make it on time
'Cause it takes me so long
Just to figure out what I'm gonna wear
Blame it on the train
But the boss is already there

All of the nights
Why did my lover have to pick last night
To get down
Doesn't it matter
That I have to feed the both of us
Employment's down
He tells me in his bedroom voice
C'mon honey, let's go make some noise
Time it goes so fast
When you're having fun

Welcome to Music & ME!

This blog would be all about music.

I am musically inclined but tone deaf!

Honestly, I was a church choir til HS but nowadays I just listen to my iPod and sing along.

I'm still thinking of how to organize my music entries here, so just bear with me.
