Breaking Benjamin – Give Me a Sign (album: Dear Agony 2010)

This song is by Breaking Benjamin. I never get sick of this song, the music is just awesome ! I’m not really sure what this song is about, sounds like it’s about failed relationship again…

It’s been 10 days since I’ve last posted; I’ve been really busy with work and practicing the guitar. My Hubby and I and our friends that moved with us to Qld all went for a visit in Sydney this weekend. We’ve met with all our friends; we spent most of our time eating meeting friends at the different restaurants.  My Hubby and our friend were invited to a bucks night and they had a really good time , my Hubby told me all about the stripers , luckily he wasn’t that impressed . he wasn’t sure of the gender of the main stripper, he showed me a photo and I must say she does look like a man with boobs!  While he was partying with a bunch of guys , I’ve met with the girls and we had a nice time , we went  out for dinner and later on went to a new pub and had a drink. One of our friend’s in Sydney told us at dinner that he wrote a song , he was listening to the crappy music on the radio and he realized that he could do much better, since he’s obviously not that busy at work or not that interested , he wrote some wonderful lyrics for a song that he intended to be a techno song. My Hubby and I mentioned to him that we sometimes work on our music , I usually sing and my Hubby composes the music, we both built the structure of the song but mostly it is done by my Hubby since he is very experienced and much more creative then I am. Anyway , we asked our friend to send us the lyrics so we can work on the music. The lyrics are just amazing! This is exactly what we were missing , good lyrics. So these days we are working on a techno version of this song , my Hubby has a really good idea in his head and we are now in the process of creating this beautiful song. I’ve already finished singing it and now my Hubby doing his magic on his music programs. I can’t wait to listen to the finished song. Our dear friends and neighbors are going to contribute to this song as well and it’s going to be a massive project. We are also planning on making a rock version to it which I’m quite excited about since I really want to play the guitar and I love singing rock music. It makes me feel like a real rock star and you never know , we might get famous one day…hopefully I’ll have a chance to post both versions on the song on my blog. In the meantime , I hope you enjoy this following song…

Anthrax – Misery Loves Company (album: State of Euphoria1988)

This song is by Anthrax. My Cousin was a big fan of Iron Maiden and Anthrax among and other heavy metal bands. That was the same period I’ve discovered Heavy Metal and I’ve collected a few different albums. I’ve purchased “State of Euphoria” and I’ve played it over and over again. I really liked this album even though it was quite heavy compare to the rest of the music I’ve listened to during that period.I was never much into speed metal. This is a great song. This song is based on Stephen King’s novel “Misery” I really liked the movie as well. It really scared back when I was a teenager.

t’s been a week since my last post. I’ve been really busy lately; my Hubby has been teaching me new things on the guitar. He composed a solo part for me to practice which is quite brilliant and I’m also practicing “Fade to Black” by Metallica. My favourite song of all times! I’m currently playing only a small part of it but it’s so complicated that I would need to practice each part separately if I want to master this song. It might take me awhile but it’s quite fun to practice and see the progress. I just love every minute of it. So I hope you enjoy this song that brings back wonderful memories from at least 20 years ago…

Kaiser Chiefs – Every Day I Love You Less and Less (album: Employment 2005)

This is another song by Kaiser Chiefs. This song is quite vicious, it makes me laugh. I’m quite sad today so I thought this song will cheer me up little bit. 
My Hubby went on a snowboarding trip yesterday. he will be back in 3 days. It always makes me sad when he is away. I love hanging out with him every spare minute and from some reason he always likes to be away….hahahaha .We have just finished our little project for our nieces, we have made a song and a video with their photos for their upcoming B-Day’ turned out really good. Our families really liked it. Except for my parents, they didn’t show any enthusiasm about it. I got “it’s nice” which is good enough for me ;)  I’ve really enjoyed the process of recording the song and then working on the video. I felt like a real rock star during this period and it is quite mind blowing when you listen to your own creation and you actually enjoy was quite a hard work getting there. It’s quite magical though! It was awesome working on a song with my Hubby , he is quite a professional, he knows exactly what he’s doing and what to press to get the best sounds and the best effects. He also knows how to play all instruments which was quite helpful. Anyway I hope my hubby is having fun in the snow! Now back to my wicked song…

Foo Fighters – Walk (album: Wasting Light 2011)

This is another song from Foo Fighters new album, it is just awesome! I can’t stop listening to it! It a great song that Dave Grohl wrote about his experience with his first daughter violet when he tried to teach her how to walk and how eventually she managed to walk on her own.

Speaking of walking, when I was 13 I went on a 3 days field trip with my class mates and we were all carrying a backpack filled with food and clothes and a sleeping bags on the first day we were walking on a very slippery muddy road and in the middle of everything there was a fish pool  and we had to walk around it, since I was carrying so much on my back I’ve accidently slipped and fell into the pool with all my equipment , my clothes , my food and sleeping bag all got wet and smelly!. It was a horrible experience since I’ve almost drowned in that pool. Luckily I came out of this pool alive, swimming with all my heavy equipment and trying to hold on to very slippery rocks. I remember feeling very sad after this experience. I was worried about what to wear , eat and my sleeping arrangements, I was too embarrassed to ask for help from my friends.  Everything I planned for this trip was ruined after that. Luckily all my class mates shared everything with me. They all offered to help out. After that experience I wasn’t keen on going on field trips anymore. The year after it was a different story for me and my friends, we were more focused on smoking and drinking ourselves to death and not getting caught than enjoying the field trip and nature. Years and years later when I met my Hubby we went camping a few times in Galilee Sea, we stayed in a tent and had a nice barbeque all day and it was so much fun! One of the guys had a kiosk and he brought his hot dog machine from his shop and we ate so many hotdogs we couldn’t eat another sausage for at least 6 months. Another guy brought his speedboat and my Hubby did some water skiing and I got a free ride on a cool boat. We also bought really cool river tubes and spend a lot of time in the water! We had such a great time and I was very happy that this time I didn’t share my food with the fish! Check out this awesome song from this amazing album…

Lyrics: Walk Lyrics

What’s this song about?

According to Dave Grohl, he came up with the verse about "having a trial" after the time he was helping his first daughter Violet Maye on "learning to walk", and eventually she was able to walk on her own. The song was supposed to be on the previous studio album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, but Dave decided to put the final version as the last track of Wasting Light because it "sort of makes sense to the album's theme of time and second chances", and to "end the record on a positive note"(Wikipedia – Walk)

Apocalyptica – I Don’t Care (album: Worlds Collide 2008)

This song is the Finnish rock band Apocalyptica, featuring Adam Gontier the lead singer of Three Days Grace. My Hubby has found this song for me , He knows my taste. I really love Adam’s voice. I think it’s quite powerful.
This weekend my Hubby and I have been working on a song for both our nieces upcoming Birthdays. Both our Sister’s beautiful girls will turn one year old on the 15/08 & 24/08, they are both gorgeous! It’s quite an exciting project. I love our music projects. We are making a cover for a known song but My Hubby managed to make his own music and completely changed the song and it sounds even better than the original. He is playing the guitar, bass guitar, piano, drums and singing background voices. He is quite a talented musician! He would have finished this project on his own if it wasn’t for my unbelievable triangle playing! Just kidding, I’m actually singing and playing the guitar or at least pretending to play the guitar, yes I am aware of my horrible guitar playing! I promise to get better with more practice. My Hubby has this music program that can change the voice of a person or add more background voices and he made my voice sound so good, it’s quite an amazing technology. I’m really looking forward to listen to our finished song. It might take a few more days though. We have also received good news from our dear friends in Sydney they just had a baby girl and they named her Tully after Tully River in Queensland and we are very excited for them. Other than that, life is swell and I have absolutely nothing more to say! so I hope you enjoy this song...

Lyrics: I Don't Care Lyrics

What’s this song about?

"I Don't Care" was based upon the instrumental track "Love Song", written by Eicca Toppinen for the Black Ice movie soundtrack.

Eicca Toppinen told about the song in an interview for Dutch metal webzine in 2007: "I wrote some of the lyrics to "I Don’t Care." Max Martin wrote most of the lyrics, though. The song is about a fantasy and not about anyone in particular, but I think everyone can find a sense of truth in the lyrics.”(Wikipedia – I don’t care)

Jane’s Addiction – Stop (album: Ritual de lo Habitual 1990)

This is another great song by Jane’s Addiction , I just love it and I think they are quite an awesome band in general!!!
I think this song it’s pretty relevant to the recent horror events that occurred in Norway, A crazy guy (not worth to mention his name on my blog!) that went on a murder spree by bombing central of Oslo and shooting innocent young people and eventually killing 76 people in total and I have no idea how many he had injured and how many lives had been destroyed by his actions. He claimed that he killed all these people to free Europe from Islam. what scares me the most is that we always believed that terror attacks are being executed by extreme Islamic organizations such as “Al Quaida” and Isalamic Leaders that encourage these terror attacks such as Sadam Hussein however America got rid of both Sadam Hussien and Osama Bin Laden and still the world is crazy as it is and every day there are new crazy evil people that find a different reason to destroy other’s people life and creating a real threat to our freedom. The world is gone completely nuts and it really scares me, these days I’m still considering whether it’s a good idea to raise children in this chaotic world. This is a nice line from this song: “don’t save the complaints for party conversations, the world is loaded it’s lit to pop and nobody is gonna stop! “ check out this wonderful song about the current sad situation in the world…

Lyrics: Stop Lyrics

What’s this song about?

Here is a nice comment from Songfacts website:

In this song, lead singer Perry Farrell takes on environmental destruction and cultural malaise, asking listeners to turn off both their smokestacks and radios. The "water will run" image seemed a little dramatic at the time, but history proved that Farrell was right, as climate change exasperated by humans led to floods and other natural disasters.
