Sing a song...


Well, Music has been a big part of my life and I don't really mean like how many would relate it to instruments and how much of one is trying to be a performer someday. I just simply love good music and it translate to my very eclectic taste. No, I ain't trying to say that music today i no where near bearable listening material however, what we have today as much as i tried to appreciate it is basically... noise!

So I was having tandoori chicken and Naan (a favourite and we only get to eat it when we have guest from overseas) so this distant aunt of mine was here this weekend. She used to find me and my siblings "way too immature to even stand in her presence or even to strike up conversations". Prior to this, my sister and I were basically fighting over my Ipod in the car ( our very own way of showing affection for one another) both of us trying to out do one another with our musical taste... Hence, our conversations at the table was music. Boy, was she shocked at our taste in music. Sis loves classical, acoustic music with a blend of Japanese music and English oldies as well as some more mellow, melancholic music while I am into Motown, Beatles and vocal driven songs not to mention Diva-Galore-rific songs from Whitney. We end up having Celine Dion and Il Divo playing on her PDA while we had naan. What ambiance!

I used to have friends and all teasing me about my musical taste... "So old one?" "Har, what song is that? Who is that?" But I could never be bothered... I always think that people who can enjoy such music are not the unclassy few... hahaha...

But thinking back, it was a fun night... I had my parents and the three of us singing oldies which i totally loathe such as Neil Sedaka's Runaway Train and that unending song about the Itsy Bitsy Tiny Polka Dot Bikini...

Here are a few tracks to spice up the blog...
And yes, they are my absolute favourite...

This is my current fave sing-a-long song... David Archuleta's Version of "Smoky Mountain Memories"


Love Song by Sara Bareilles is so addictive...


4 minutes is my "Walking Song"


Stevie Wonder is one of my many idols... here is the only one I performed at my... erm "audition"

William: Theresa Teng? Not really my thing but I used to have it in my dad's car all the time...

Savante: Hmmm... Now I know which generation you hail from but then again, even though she is not my thing, she has a few songs I could actually sing being not chinese educated

Janvier: I absolutely adore the Carpenters but ABBA is something way too corny...

Jason: I didn't bother for a very long time... Now my music are so old my parents have no idea what they were or who were they from... Thanks to a lot of American Idol and downloading...

Queer Rant: Noice? I don't like Noice either!

Ah Bong: I thought you were mocking me... nasib baik you pun ade sedikit taste!!!

Ben said...

ABBA, corny?! *gasp* How blasphemous!

On a different note, its always great to have some reality check and bring those oldies back, to really understand how music actually sounds like.
