facts about my fav songs (part 1)

Whoah.. How's life? Mine's been pretty uptight lately.. It's fun though.. I experienced few things that i'd never had the chance before.. Finally I could make my brain a little useful.. hehehehehe...

Just browsing around on the internet today, and i found this very cool site where you can find the simple little facts about soooooo many songs.. Like who wrote it, what inspired it, where was it wrote, et cetera.. Pretty cool, isn't it?

Here are some facts about some of my favorite songs...

1. Till There Was You - The Beatles

This was written in 1957 for the Broadway musical The Music Man. It was written by songwriter Meredith Wilson, who also wrote "76 Trombones" for the same musical as well as the seasonal favorite "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas."

Paul McCartney loved show tunes and wanted to cover this. His favorite version was Peggy Lee's.

The Beatles played this song, along with "She Loves You" and "Twist And Shout," at the Royal Command Performance of 1963. Paul credited it to their "Favorite American group, Sophie Tucker."

The Beatles performed this on their first Ed Sullivan Show appearance, February 9, 1964. This was a huge event, as Beatlemania had just come to America. This was the only song they played that night that was not one of their hits - they put it in to appeal to the older audience that was tuned in. As they played, the camera zoomed in on each Beatle and superimposed their first name. When it got to Lennon, it read, "Sorry girls, he's married."

This was also performed during the Beatles appearance on the Royal Variety Show on November 4, 1963. It was probably also appealing to the older audience and it provided a break between the up-tempo numbers, "She Loves You" and "Twist and Shout."

2. You Were Meant For Me - Jewel

Facts :
Jewel wrote this with Steve Poltz from The Rugburns. He also appeared in the video with Jewel.

This was Jewel's second single. "Who Will Save Your Soul" was her first.

This was the most played song on US radio in 1996.

The video was directed by Sean Penn in 1996. It featured Jewel in a couple scenes shedding her clothes. Jewel has said the "shedding" symbolizes "being free with a lover or friend. Being stripped and surrender yourself to them."

3. The Drugs Don't Work - The Verve

Facts :
Verve lead singer Richard Ashcroft wrote this. It's partly about the death of his father when he was 11, but it also refers to he and his wife's life.

This was The Verve's only #1 hit in the UK.

4. The Way - Fastball

Facts :
This is based on the true story of Lela and Raymond Howard, an elderly couple from Salado, Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. She had Alzheimer's disease and he was recovering from brain surgery. When they disappeared, a reporter from the Austin American-Statesman wrote a series of articles about the missing couple. Fastball bassist Tony Scalzo came up with the idea for the song after reading the articles (the band is from Austin). He says, "It's a romanticized take on what happened" - he "pictured them taking off to have fun, like they did when they first met." However, he found out after writing the song that the couple had died. They were found at the bottom of a canyon in Arkansas about a three-day drive from their destination.

5. Champagne Supernova - Oasis

Facts :
Noel Gallagher got the title when he misheard the name of the Pixies album Bossanova. He was watching a documentary about champagne at the time.

Noel Gallagher has a house in North London that he named "Supernova Heights."

Paul Weller, former frontman of The Jam, played guitar on this.

This was one of the few Oasis songs released as a single in the US. It went to #1 on the Modern Rock chart, and for a while it looked like Oasis was going to break through in The States.

Noel came up with the phrase "Caught beneath the landslide" when he saw a sugar jar in his girlfriend's kitchen. You can see this peculiar jar in the disk booklet where the lyrics are printed.

6. Losing My Religion - R.E.M

Facts :
The title is a Southern expression meaning "At my wit's end," as if things were going so bad you could lose your faith in God. If you were "Losing your religion" over a person, It could also mean losing faith in that person.

This won the Grammy in 1991 for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.

The video was the first to show lead singer Michael Stipe dancing. The director hung out with the band to get ideas, and when he saw Stipe's spastic dance style, he thought it would look great in the video.

The band claims this is not about religion, although the video is full of religious imagery. Some Catholic groups protested the video.

In 2003, Stipe told Entertainment Weekly, "Losing My Religion was a fluke hit. It was a 5 minute song with no chorus and a mandolin as the lead instrument. So for us to hold that as the bar we have to jump over every time we write a song would be ridiculous."

The video is based in part on Gabriel Garcia Marquez' A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings. The novel tells the story about an angel who falls down from heaven and how the people who make money displaying him as a "freak show."

7. Ironic - Alanis Morissette

Facts :
The events described in the song (rain on your wedding day, a traffic jam when you're already late, etc.), are not examples of irony. Irony is the use of words to convey the opposite of their literal meaning. The one actual, ironic statement in this song is, "As the plane crashed down he thought 'well, isn't this nice'..." Sarcasm is an example of irony, and this thought, clearly, was a sarcastic one.

At the end of the song, Alanis says life has a funny funny way of helping us out - in spite of all of the bad stuff that we have to go through. The bad stuff helps us get to where we are going, and that is ironic.

This was Morissette's third single and first Top-10 hit. Her first single, "You Oughta Know," is probably her best known, but no one had heard of her when it was released and it only hit US #13.

Glen Ballard produced this and wrote it with Alanis. He has also worked with Dave Matthews and has a history of radio-friendly production. Morissette moved from Canada to Los Angeles to write and record with him.

This is one of 5 hits on the album, which has sold over 16 million copies. The others are "You Oughta Know," "Hand In My Pocket," "Head Over Feet" and "You Learn."

This was nominated for Grammys in the categories Record Of The Year and Best Short Form Music Video.

In 1996, this won MTV Video Music Awards for Best Female Video, Best Editing, and Best New Artist In A Video.

This was the first album Morissette released in America, but as a teenager, she released 2 dance albums in Canada. Her stage name at the time was simply "Alanis."

8. The Man Who Sold The World - David Bowie

Facts :
This is about a man who no longer recognizes himself and feels awful about it.

For years, Bowie struggled with his identity and expressed himself through his songs, often creating characters to perform them. On the album cover, Bowie is wearing a dress.

Some of the lyrics are based on a poem by Hugh Mearns called The Psychoed -

As I was going up the stair, I met a man who was not there, he wasn't there again today, I wish that man would go away.

The actual man who sold the world, at least Bowie's world during this phase of his career, may have been Adolf Hitler. Bowie's fascination with this topic is evident in his '70s move to Berlin and his return to Victoria Station in 1976 in full SS uniform, complete with salute and open top Mercedes.

Some lyrical analysis: "We passed upon the stair" is a figurative representation of a crossroads in Bowie's life, where Ziggy Stardust catches a glimpse of his former self, (being David Bowie) which he thought had died a long time ago. Then he (the old David Bowie) says: "Oh no, not me. I never lost control." This indicates that Bowie never really lost sight of who he was, but he Sold The World (made them believe) that he had become Ziggy, and he thought it was funny (I laughed and shook his hand). He goes on to state, "For years and years I roamed," which could refer to touring. "Gaze a gazely stare at all the millions here" are the fans at concerts.

The album is one of Bowie's least-known, but over the years many fans have come to appreciate it and a lot of bands have covered songs from it.

British singer Lulu ("To Sir With Love") recorded this in 1974. Bowie produced her version and played saxophone on the track. It went to #4 in the UK.

Nirvana recorded this for their 1993 MTV Unplugged performance. Months after that show, Kurt Cobain was found dead. The acoustic set was released as an album in late 1994.

9. Heaven - Los Lonely Boys

Facts :
Guitarist Henry Garza wrote the lyrics as a prayer. When he was 18, his son died of sudden infant death syndrome (S.I.D.S). It's about the pain he felt and wanting to escape this world and see his son.

Los Lonely Boys are 3 brothers from Texas. They are bilingual - some of the lyrics to this are in Spanish.

This won a Grammy for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. Los Lonely Boys perfomed at the 2005 show.

10. Creep - Radiohead

Facts :
In the album version, lead singer Thom Yorke sings, "You're so f--king special." For radio, he recut it as, "You're so very special." Yorke regrets changing the line for the radio version, saying it disturbed the "sentiment of the song." According to him, the song lost its anger as a result.

Yorke says this is about being in love with someone, but not feeling good enough. He describes the feeling as, "There's the beautiful people and then there's the rest of us."

Yorke wrote this in 1987 while he was a student at Exeter University in England. He first recorded it acoustic.

This was written before the band formed. Yorke gave his demo version to Colin Greenwood, who joined him and helped put the band together.

This wasn't released in the US until Radiohead's debut album in 1993. The band finished college and signed their record deal in 1991.

Yorke based this on a song called "The Air That I Breathe," which was written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood in 1972. After "Creep" was released, Radiohead agreed to share the songwriting royalties, so this is credited to Yorke, Hammond and Hazlewood.

This did well in the US, but not in their native England. When they released their third album, O.K. Computer, it was huge in England but not in the US.

When this was first released in England in 1992, it flopped. It did well when it was re-released a year later, after Radiohead grew a fan base.

The first country this charted in was Israel.

The video was recorded at a club in Oxford called The Zodiac.

for your eyes only... ^_^

yang terindah bukan ketika dua pasang mata bertemu,
atau jemari menyatu..
yang terhangat bukan saat senyum terulas,
atau kau mencoba mengerti..
yang terbayang bukan saat tawa mengurai,
atau maaf terulur..

hadirmu adalah keindahan yang menghangatkan dan membayangi
kemana jiwaku melangkah

i'll think of you 'til then.. 'til we meet again..

I've been missing some friends of mine for some time now.. Some of them have been very busy lately that we can't seem to find the time to hang out, or even to chat on the phone...

First, there's my 'brother' back in highschool, we actually go to the same uni and (technically) live less than a mile apart.. We're close and he always considers me as the little sister he's never had.. We used to tell each other everything.. But now, I haven't seen him for months!!! It's like we're living in the two completely different worlds.. We've been busy and can't seem to find the right time to meet and chat face to face.. I miss him.. I miss the old times..

Then there's one of my girl from epals (my so-called-gang back in highschool.. hehe..).. We go to the different uni and different city.. Not that far, actually.. But still.. The only place where we probably could get together is Jakarta.. Sadly, most of the times that she goes back to Jakarta, I'm not there.. And by the time I go to jakarta, she's not there either.. It's been years since the last time I met her.. Sometimes we catch up by phone.. But it's way less than enough.. :(

And the last one is 'the bestfriend of my life'.. We've been bestfriends since junior high.. She graduated last year and has been working in a bank since then.. She's been soooo busy with her job plus the working-hour is so damn long (she usually gets home by 10 p.m.!!!).. Not to mention she's been having some problems with her boyfriend for some times.. I understand completely that her life may be get a bit messy nowadays, that she feels terribly exhausted.. But as her bestfriend, I want to be there for her.. I want to support her.. I want to listen to her.. But how can I possibly do all those things when she didn't even tell me that she'd changed her cellphone number??? Everytime I called her I just got her voicemail.. I found out her new number anyway, and she apologized.. Still, it made me a bit upset..

Well.. the point of this post is that I miss them.. Badly.. I miss my 'brother', my 'e' from 'epals', and last but definetely not least.. 'the bestfriend of my life'..

'Til we meet again, then..

in those hands of Yours..

In those hands of Yours
My immortality should lay
Far beyond boundaries
Sail on the river of tears
Upon a million prayers

In those hands of Yours
I shall find a path
For mine to be somewhere
Beneath the merciful thoughts
Lighten as I stumble

In those hands of Yours
My born was written
Through their hands of saintly
The ecstasy has been gathered
And the nuisance has been healed

In those hands of Yours

craving for existance, huh??! =p

Yesterday, my mom asked me "what is a blog?" .. Then, after I explained to her, her second question was "why do you blog?" .. Mmm.. took me a while to think of an answer..

Why do I blog..? Well, apparently I blog for no specific reason.. I just love having a place where I can put anything I like.. My random thoughts, my stories, my stupid poems, basically anything.. I like to keep them some place else beside in my own head.. I like to share them, even if nobody cares to read.. I don't give a damn of how many people read my post.. And I don't care whether people like it or not.. I blog simply because I want to blog..and I enjoy doing it.. Hell with _quoting a friend =p_ craving for an existance whatsoever.. Hehehehehe..

Anyway.. enough about that.. The rain is pouring down outside.. And the big breakfast I had this morning's kinda showing its effect to me.. I'M SLEEPY.. Ughh.. I think God's punishing me for eating like a pig.. Hehehehe..

-the kinda look of my face after the big breakfast..=p-

straight jacket feeling

I remember a few months ago.. There was one windy night, me and some friends hung out together.. We wanted to cheer my broken-hearted friend.. We talked.. We laughed.. We sang.. Tried our best to make him smile..

From all of the songs we sang that night.. There's one song that I remember the most.. There's one that until now, everytime I hear that song.. I remember him.. My broken-hearted friend.. And I remember that night.. The night I saw true pain in his eyes.. Eventhough he finally smiled, he just couldn't hide the sorrow..

Here's the song... Straight Jacket Feeling from The All American Rejects..

Back me down from backing up
Hold your breath now it's stacking up
Etched with marks, but I can deal
And you're the problem and you can't feel

Try this on, straight jacket feeling
so maybe I won't be alone
Take back now, my life you're stealing
Yesterday was hell

But today I'm fine without you
Runaway this time without you
And all I ever thought you'd be
That face is tearing holes in me again

Trust you is just one defense
off a list of others, you don't make sense
Beg me time and time again
to take you back now, but you can't win

Take back now, my life you're stealing
Yesterday was hell

But today I'm fine without you
Runaway this time without you
And all I ever thought you'd be
That face is tearing holes in me again

but today I'm fine without you
Runaway this time without you
And all the things you put me through
I'm holding on by letting go of you

And when the memory slips away
There will be a better view from here
And only lonesome you remains
and just the thought of you I fear
it falls away

Yesterday was hell

But today I'm fine without you
Runaway this time without you
And all I ever thought you'd be
That face is tearing holes in me again

but today I'm fine without you
Runaway this time without you
And all the things you put me through
I'm holding on by letting go of you

Sadly, I've never seen him again since that night.. I don't know how he is right now.. Hopefully his pain's healed.. He's a good man.. I pray for him to find his true love.. I pray for him to be happy.. No matter where he is right now.. No matter what he's doing.. Simply because he deserves it..

little low..

It's raining outside.. This kinda cold weather usually makes my mood a little low.. But now , it's not the weather.. It's just me..

Let's just say..I heard someone mentioned a name.. The one that I'd never expected to hear on that kinda conversation we had.. Well, actually I've had no reason to be upset whatsoever.. From the beginning I knew I wouldn't have a chance when it comes to this matter.. From the beginning I knew it would come up eventually.. I thought it wouldn't bother me this much.. But I guess I was wrong.. It does upset me.. A lot..

Well... maybe I've just got to get used to it.. *sigh*

Right now I'm working on my ass.. whoops.. I mean my final ASSignment for my Media Planning subject.. And I'm stuck.. So here I am..blogging.. hehehehe.. The deadline is tomorrow morning, by the way.. But what the hell.. What's wrong with all those lecturers who think of us as the real media planner.. Hellooo.. We're not.. We're just some 4th-year undergraduate students who've been working our asses off to graduate as soon as possible.. Please don't hold us back.. Please, Sir..and Ma'am..

Ughhhh.. GOD.. My Merciful GOD.. Please please please let me graduate this year.. Hopefully next semester... *crossing my fingers*.. And also let me pass the "kapita selekta komunikasi" subject which final exam last tuesday was my worst exam ever.. Hiks.. Uhhhm GOD, do I ask for too much?

if only i could write a song..

aku mengenalmu dengan sejuta rasa
yang menjadikanmu lebih nyata
dari sekedar mereka yang mengaku cinta

dengan berbagai rupa tawa itu selalu ada
mengiring waktu yang mengukuhkan
hari-harimu dalam genggaman jemariku

inilah masa yang kuharap bisa
menjadi beku oleh beningnya pagi
di mana kau menyapa

meski hanya sedetik kuharap kau untukku

today is the day...

hmmm... today is absolutely the day.. i don't even know where to start.. well, let's just say that i'd been earthbound for quite a long time.. and now.. i'm officially spreading my wings to fly and soar above the sky.. above all my fears.. above all my nightmares..

i guess you don't get what i'm talking about, do you? hehehe.. sorry.. it's just too hard to express how i feel when all of the sudden i'm back up on cloud #nine.. *wink*

i said i was happy..but i lied.. i was much more than happy.. and i am much much much more than happy now..

hmmm... eventhough i've got cold and terrible headache.. eventhough i've only slept for 2 hours.. eventhough i've got tons of readings to catch up.. eventhough my assignments are waiting to be finished.. but i can't feel bad at all today.. happiness is without a doubt the only thing on my mind..

i'm feeling like posting a lyric here for someone tonight..


Goodnight, my someone, goodnight, my love.
Sleep tight, my someone, sleep tight, my love.
Our star is shining its brightest light,
For goodnight, my love, for goodnight.

Sweet dreams be yours, dear, if dreams there be
Sweet dreams to carry you close to me.
I wish they may and I wish they might.
Now goodnight, my someone, goodnight.

True love can be whispered from heart to heart,
When lovers are parted they say.
But I must depend on a wish and a star
As long as my heart doesn't know who you are.

Sweet dreams be yours, dear, if dreams there be
Sweet dreams to carry you close to me.
I wish they may and I wish they might.
Now goodnight, my someone, goodnight.

Goodnight! Goodnight!

well.. goodnight to you all..

the day of quizes... ;)

I'm going back to Jatinangor this afternoon.. Hiks.. Sad to leave home, especially knowing that I might not come back soon.. I'll have my final exams next week and my job training at Female Radio will start right after.. So, apparently no break for me until the next semester.. :(

Anyway.. today I took some quizes from just for killing time.. And I'm posting the results here so you all can see.. But before, i've got to warn you that the stuffs i'm posting are really2 unimportant.. So if you have better things to do.. Just close my blog's window and do your things.. But if you're really that bored and absolutely have nothing else to do.. Keep reading!!! Hehehehe...

It turned out I'm more a cat than a dog.. Miaooww...

You Are: 30% Dog, 70% Cat

You and cats have a lot in common.
You're both smart and in charge - with a good amount of attitude.
However, you do have a very playful side that occasionally comes out!

I was really excited to find out how gross I am.. Hehehe.. Luckily, it said I'm not that gross.. fiuhhh...
You Are 36% Gross

You're a tad gross, but generally you're a clean, hygienic person.
No one can be perfectly clean all the time, and it's better to be human than a neat freak.

I guess I always know that I'm more a right brained than a left brained.. But still I took this quiz...
You Are 45% Left Brained, 55% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.
Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.
If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.
Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.
Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.
If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.
Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.

What is my PERSONALITY??? hmm.. kinda exciting... Eventhough the result said that I'm Idealist???? Huhuhuhu.. I guess it's a little too good to be true.. =p
You Are An INFP

The Idealist

You are creative with a great imagination, living in your own inner world.
Open minded and accepting, you strive for harmony in your important relationships.
It takes a long time for people to get to know you. You are hesitant to let people get close.
But once you care for someone, you do everything you can to help them grow and develop.

You would make an excellent writer, psychologist, or artist.

And finally this one.. I only took all these quizes for fun.. I was so shocked when I found out the result for this one.. Because, it's so damn right.. Everything it said about me is true.. Simply true.. Quite shocking.. Hehehehe...
The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.

In love, you feel the most alive when your lover is creative and never lets you feel bored.

You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.

Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything... no secrets.

Your risk of cheating is low. Even if you're tempted, you'd try hard not to do it.

You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.

In this moment, you think of love as something you don't need. You just feel like flirting around and playing right now.

Fiuhh... actually I took more quizes but I think it's too long to post them all.. Well I guess now at least you know what to do to kill your time beside reading my unimportant post, rite??? Ciao...

2007 has come... *wink*

It's officially the first day in the year of 2007.. So far so good.. haha.. It's only been less than 14 hours, actually.. =p

How bout my new year's eve??? Hmmm.. I spent it in the most unusual way.. Totally different from the past years.. But I enjoyed it very much.. It was great.. For those who happened to know what I was doing last night.. Please.. i mean PLEASE.. forever hold your silence!!! hehehehe...

Anyway.. I do have many big hopes for this year ahead.. But I guess I'd better keep them for myself and simply do my best to make them come true.. This year's definetely gonna be the year full of hard works and efforts.. But, hey.. gotta work to get the cream, haven't we all?

Last but not least.. let me wish you all a bright and happy New Year.. o^_^o
