• Listen to Me When Your HeartΒ Breaks

    November 19, 2010 ishabelle

    The Heart of the Matter by India Arie "It's about forgiveness…" This is absolutely the best phrase in the entire song. Basically, the song is about a woman who got a phone call from her friend telling her that her ex-lover has already found a new love. My favorite line actually has a universal truth in it. Breakups are always about forgiveness, even when there's no love anymore. Forgiveness for the hurt we cause each other. Forgiveness for the wrongs…

    I don't even need convincing. I love karaoke, especially karaoke nights at home. The three songs above are just the ones that I always sing every time there's a karaoke party. However, that does not mean I don't sing anything else. What about you? What are the songs that make it to your list? wink Karyn White by Superwoman I've loved this song since I was young. I'm not a fan of its lyrics, but I know I can sing…

  • The Explanation

    For today, I want to explain the reason behind yesterday’s poem, “Found.” I feel that a lot of people may not really appreciate the poem because the message of the poem was not really laid out in simple words, like what I always do with my other poems. Wednesday afternoon, while at work, I was listening to this song by the APO Hiking Society called “When I Met You.” For those who are not from the Philippines, I’m sure you…

  • Weekend in New England (reposted from my other blog)

    December 14, 2009 ishabelle

    Probably the saddest song I’ve ever heard is Barry Manilow’s “Weekend in New England”. I was listening to Pandora earlier when the song played. It’s not just the lyrics that make it sad.
