Song of the Week: I Lay My Love On You – Westlife

As you know, Shane Filan of Westlife had his first solo show here in the Philippines on Wednesday, 01 October 2014 at the World Trade Center to promote his solo album. And speaking of Westlife, this just brought back memories from the late 90’s when we go crazy over boy bands like Backstreet Boys, A1, *NSYNC, etc. and those cassette tapes and Walkmans. So as a tribute to the music of the late 90’s , let me share to you one of my favorite songs from Westlife. Please feel free to feel nostalgic (and maybe old?). 🙂

Title: I Lay My Love On You
Artist: Westlife
Album: Coast to Coast
Genre: Pop
Year: 2001

Just a smile and the rain is gone
Can hardly believe it (yeah)
There’s an angel standing next to me
Reaching for my heart

Just a smile and there’s no way back
Can hardly believe it (yeah)
But there’s an angel calling me
Reaching for my heart

I know, that I’ll be okay now
This time it’s real

I lay my love on you
It’s all I wanna do
Everytime I breathe I feel brand new
You opened up my heart
Show me all your love and walk right through
As I lay my love on you

I was lost in a lonely place
Could hardly believe it (yeah)
Holding on to yesterdays
Far, far too long

I believe its okay ’cause this time it’s real

I lay my love on you
It’s all I wanna do
Everytime I breathe I feel brand new
You opened up my heart
Show me all your love and walk right through
As I lay my love on you

I never knew that love could feel so good

Like a once in a lifetime
You changed my world

I lay my love on you
You make me feel brand new
Show me your love and walk right through
As I lay my love on you

I lay my love on you
It’s all I wanna do
Everytime I breathe I feel brand new
You opened up my heart
Show me all your love and walk right through
‘Cause I lay my love on you

I lay my love on you
You make me feel brand new
You opened up my heart
Show me all your love and walk right through
As I lay my love on you

As I lay my love on you

Song of the Week: Choices – To Kill A King

Since I was born with the love for music, I decided to post a song every Sunday. Songs that I consider one of my favorites. Basically, songs that are on my playlist. Hope you’ll like em! 😀

So to start this stuff, I’d like to share with you this awesome track from a British band composed of Ralph Pelleymounter (vocals, acoustic guitar), Josh Platman (bass), Josh Taffel (drums), Grant McNeill (electric guitar) and Ben Jackson (synth, keys):

Title: Choices
Artist: To Kill A King
Album: Cannibals with Cutlery
Genre: Alternative (according to iTunes)
Year: 2013

I never took away your crutch
Just became it day by day
Blood filling up our boots
What’s the use in talking?
All you want do is walk
It’s all you want do
This is how the summer ends
This is how the summer ends

You never took away my crutch
Just became it day by day
Blood filling up our boots
What’s the use in talking?
Eyes are open finally
Eyes are open finally
All you want do is walk
It’s all you want to do, do and
This is how the summer ends
This is how the summer ends

I, I have the same choices as you do
As you do
When you fall
Fall like I knew you would
Lead me down, down, down
Lead me down

I never showed you what I want
You never told me what you need
A match bursting into flames
And all is dust soon enough
Eyes are open finally
Eyes are open finally
And all you want do is walk
It’s all you want do, do and
This is how the summer ends
This is how the summer ends

I, I have the same choices as you do
As you do
When you fall
Fall like I knew you would
Lead me down, down, down
Lead me down

He’s on your doorstep
He’s ladened with flowers
This garden is freezing, teasing
You’re leaving me for hours

Your Song (My One and Only You) – Parokya ni Edgar

Alam ko na gaya ko, idolo o paboritong banda nyo din ang Parokya ni Edgar. At dahil sa open letter ni Metaporista para kay Chito Miranda, naisip ko na ibahagi sa inyo ang isa sa mga paborito kong kanta nila.

Lyrics:

It took one look
Then forever laid out in front of me
One smile, then I died
Only to be revived by you

There I was
Thought I had everything figured out
Goes to show just how much I know
‘Bout the way life plays out

I take one step away
Then I find myself coming back to you
My one and only, one and only you

Now I know
That I know not a thing at all
Except the fact that I am yours
And that you are mine

Ooh,
They told me that this wouldn’t be easy
And no
I’m not one to complain

I take one step away
Then I find myself coming back to you
My one and only one and only
I take one step away
Then I find myself coming back to you
My one and only, one and only you.

 

BO: Ang Pagbabalik

Si Bob Ong ay isang Pilipinong manunulat na sumikat dahil sa mga obra nyang puno ng sense of humor habang pinupuna ang buhay ng mga Pilipino.

Nagsimula siya ng mabuo ang blog nya sa Multiply na Bobong Pinoy kung saan nabuo din ang pseudonym nyang Bob Ong. Kasabay ng pagkaalis ni former President ERAP sa serbisyo dahil sa People Power 2, nawala na din ang blog nya.

Ilan sa mga popular na libro nya ay ang ABNKKBSNPLAko?!, Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas, Stainless Longganisa, Macarthur, Ang Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan at Lumayo Ka Nga Sa Akin na lumabas noong 2011.

Para sa mga followers ni Bob Ong, isang nakalulungkot na taon ang 2012 dahil walang lumabas na bagong libro si BO.

Kaya naman sabi ni BO sa kanyang Facebook,

Marami pong salamat sa pagbabasa. Utang muna ang 2012. =>

Tulad ko, ang video na ito ang pinakahihintay ng milyong sumusubaybay sa mga librong isinusulat ni BO.

2013. Konti na lang. Kanting konti na lang.
