Yep, going on a looooooooong break.

Hey everybody,

It's Tennie. (OH MY GOD EWWWW RUN SHE HAS GERRRRMS WHO KNOWS WHAT SHE WAS DOING WHILE SHE WAS GONE)
As you've noticed, this blog hasn't been updated in a loooooooooooooooong time.
I'm sorry. There's no excuse for this type of behaviour.

I'm planning on closing the blog. I have another one that I'd like to start, seeing as I have more time on my hands. Our other two admins are very busy as well.
I hate seeing blogs which have been left hanging. Especially those that don't even post a reason to why they haven't updated in months or years. That's why I'm typing this.

And since the new year is coming up in two days, it's time to tie up loose ends.

Thank you so much for coming along on the journey.
Maybe we'll meet and not know it, ne?

Until next time,
-Tennie.

PS. Oh - once I get my other blog up and running, maybe I'll post the link here. :D
Have a great New Year!

Sara Bareilles - Brave

Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out.

AHH I LOVE THIS SONG.
It's been running through my head all day (and I accidentally typed it into my essay paper... took me a few minutes to realize it...), and for good reason too!
It's an awesome song.
Sara Bareilles is amazing.
I like happy songs~ <3 :D
The song is ENCOURAGING.

It's just plain wonderful.
Rawrgh.
GIVE IT A LISTEN YO.



-Tennie.
Honestly, I wanna see you be brave.

Never Shout Never - Happy

I'm happy knowing that you are mine.

Hey there everybody!
This is a post that I started a long time ago.
But ehh, it's an AWESOME SONG. It makes me happy.
IT'S CALLED HAPPY.

The artist is Never Shout Never, an awesome musician who usually plays lighter, happier music (well, from what I've listened to lately). He's a lot like A Rocket To The Moon!
For example, Can't Stand It is a chill song (well, it's explicit too...). Like We Used To by ARTTM is so... sad, but also reminiscent.

But that song is for another day, another post.

Have a wonderful day or evening, wherever you are.

Smile!

-Tennie.
You make me happy, whether you know it or not.

Elle Varner - Sound Proof Room

wanna do something we ain't supposed to do.

Oh man. I found this song because of Miss Batoonchi - Megan Batoon!
It's from this video.
Ohhh man. Miss Batoon, if you see this, I will be so happy. :D
But besides fangirling pathetically, give the video some likes! SHARE IT WITH YOUR FRIENDS.

The song's artist is Elle Varner, a lady with a bright, yet raspy voice. She makes me think of Janet Joplin, but not as low of a tone.

I have an extremely vague idea of what this song might be saying, but I'll just give you guys another thought from the great Internet.
This song is about a girl who's falling in love with one of her friends. She wants to do it with him, she cant take all the sexual tension that's surrounding them. She's not usually like this, she's usually a lady, but lately she's thinking dirty thoughts about him. She's wants to do stuff she's not suppose to. Friends aren't suppose to have benefits, but she wants to. And if she ever gets him alone she just wants him to know, that they're gonna need a soundproof room. She wants "Extra Curriculars on a lunch break." She wont give up, she just wants him. "I never usually, say such crazy things, I can’t control myself. What have you done to me? Or more importantly,what am I gonna do to you?" She never says things like this but the attraction between them is crazy, she cant control herself, that's how cute he is. What has he done to her? She's never reacted this way to anyone else before. But more importantly what is she gonna do to him.
-piper888, SongMeanings.
I'm rather cheap, you might think, for getting a quote off the internet, but AT LEAST I GAVE piper888 CREDIT. XD

Smile. I love you! (:

-Tennie.
Me and you, we're gonna need a sound proof room.

Birdy - Wings

In the moment we're lost and found.

Well, hello everyone.
You must hate me. I've been gone for...
THREE MONTHS. AHH.
THIS IS HORRENDOUS.

But anyways - I started school. Thus, maybe I'll find more music to post! Ahh.
How have you all been?!

This song is Birdy's most recent single, Wings.

In my opinion, I feel like this song is about a girl who desperately wants to see her lover again and is recalling all her past memories with him.

I have to go study. T__T

CATCH Y'ALL LATER.

-Tennie.
If these wings could fly.

Hurting for a Very Hurtful pain - VY1/VY2

Konnichiwa everyone! I once again apologize for me being gone for so long again! Here's my reasons..

  • I started to learn to write Japanese again so I have heavy homework. AUGH D:
  • I am soon doing a solo for my dance studio and I have so much damn contracts to sign, I have to choose songs, I have to do so much T^T
  • I started to stream on twitch.tv for League of Legends or whatever I feel like playing.
  • Beside the fact I have solo dance stuff, I still have summer classes for dance also and yea. > <
  • I recently finished my testing for my Archery Class and Fencing so I have to tutor kids now GAHH
  • Summer..plans..the usual
Only listing six since that is my favorite number :3 I dunno why..Six is just a very close number to me since I turned 3 HAH~!

But going on to the song, I really like the song. The meaning of it is still unsure to me at this point. I have many theories to it so I'll list one.

VY1 and VY2 are not officially listed as brother and sisters so for this theory, VY1 is a person and VY2 is his other side or something like that. VY1 is struggling with life and he's trying to push through depression. There for, he's hurting over a hurtful pain. His shadow, VY2, keeps reminding him about depression and saying 'go away' for the meaning of 'leave life.' Later in the song, VY1 is finally free and he is happy, but VY2 comes back and he goes through the cycle again.

And the song obviously is not VY1 and VY2..I just LOVE this version..I do I'm sorry! I just love how the song fits with their voices better! It sounds so...GAHH LOVE IT!!

I'll try to be more active if I have the time. Till then..CYA!!

Lorde - Royals

That kind of love just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz.

Yo yo yo. It's Tennie. :D

Since it's been a while, and I lied about updating sooner, I have decided to ATTEMPT and make a schedule of when I should/can post.
Because I need to learn how to follow schedules. Ugh.

Well, this song is about (in my opinion, because I honestly am not sure at all what this song is about. o.o) ambition.
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies.

And I'm not proud of my address, in a torn up town,
No post code envy.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler, you can call me queen B,
And baby I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule,
Let me live that fantasy.
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
We're bigger than we ever dreamed, and I'm in love with being queen,
Oooooh ooooh ohhhhh life is game without a care.
Let me live that fantasy. 

Those are the lines that I've picked out from the song that seem to exemplify ambition. She sings that she wants to be queen. Hence the line, let me live that fantasy. Let me be your ruler, you can call me Queen B.

And... That's about it.

AREN'T YOU HAPPY FOR THE NEW ADMIN KALMAN AHH I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR ONE FOR MONTHS. ._.

Okay. Thanks for reading! See you all next time.

-Tennie.

And I'm not proud of my address, in a torn-up town. No post code envy.

Yasashisa no Riyuu – ChouCho

Yo! It's me Kalman again.

Recently, I got into an anime called "Hyouka" (or Hyōka) and I'm loving every bit of it; the premise, the characters, the story, the animation, the opening music... It goes on, really. The animation, done by the wonderful Kyoto Animation studio (which also produced popular shows such as The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, K-On! (and its sequel), Nichijou, and so forth) is what I consider movie quality. It is top-notch and I cannot gush as much as I want to about it. For a 24-episode series, the animation does it more than justice, adding on with its wonderful characters and a story that fits so well altogether.

But, that's not the point about the blog!

The music is something that I think would fit well into a romance, but at the same time, it doesn't have to. What I think of this is that people dream of themselves or others when it comes to self-importance. It really matters to youths and adults alike, as I believe no one wants to be forgotten or left behind to be remembered as something they're not.

The video above is only the opening to the anime, but the full song is below:

But for now...

UNTIL NEXT TIME!

Helix Nebula – Anamanaguchi

Yo! Kalman here!

This piece of music is something I found when I played "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World The Game," and I've grown to love chiptune music.

Anamanaguchi creates these awesome arcadey soundtracks that brings a factor of excitement, nostalgia, and awesome. Like honestly, when it was a really sunny day in my city, travelling with Anamanaguchi playing just brings adventure even though I was just standing still on the train.

Having been out since 2004, I was surprised that I did not have anymore of there music. Chiptune is definitely a niche for those who loved the sound of the consoles and arcades of days past. Go and listen to all of their albums! Go!

But for now...

UNTIL NEXT TIME!

Tonari no Totoro – ALL THAT JAZZ

Hello!

First of all, I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Kalman, and from today forward, I will be an admin on omelet's music.

Anyway, to business!

I'd like to start off my first post with a great smooth jazz piece from the ALL THAT JAZZ album, Tonari no Totoro. Both the original and this rendition gives a happy vibe, but unlike the original, the jazz version makes you dancing.

The album itself is rare to find, but lucky for us, YouTube is there for us! The whole album can be played on this one video.

I hope enjoy it! But for now...

UNTIL NEXT TIME!

The Neighbourhood - Sweater Weather

I hate the beach, but I stand in California with my toes in the sand.

Hi guys! Happy June. It's finally summer vacation, or coming up for a lot of you. :)
My school year's over, so there's not really much for me to do but:

  • read
  • play video games :3
  • babysit my little brother
  • learn Japanese
  • run more
  • exercise more, generally
  • and do more with my life that I never bothered to do before.

I'm kind of excited for summer.

But back to the song!
I can't interpret this song without sounding like a fake.
Thus, I will find answers off of the great internet!
Is it possible this song revolves around the speaker admitting that they are currently in a relationship of infidelity? 
SHE knows what I think about...just US, YOU find out. Nothing that we don't wanna tell you about.
At first listen, it sounded like a cute song but after listening to it a few times, it sounds more like a confessional. There's a You and there's a She and I think they're different people. He's having a relationship on the side and he's telling "you" that it's too cold here; he can't offer her his sweater, but he can offer her a place in the holes of his sweater. 
She's getting somebody else's leftovers. Am I off?
 - BatteryPoweredLight, songmeanings.net
This answer conflicts with this one:
He wants a woman he can't have. He's singing to her.

She knows he wants her and there's an obvious mutual attraction but nothing can happen due to the situation... he'll settle with holding her hands in the holes of his sweater. 

This song has nothing to do with a threesome or women. It's one woman he wants that he can't have.
Oh, she knows what I think about 
And what I think about 
One love, two mouths (him and her) 
One love, one house (him and her) 
No shirt, no blouse 
Just us, you find out (he wants her to be curious) 
Nothing I really wanna tell you about no 
'Cause it's too cold whoa 
For you here 
And now, so let me hold whoa 
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater
 - lilb, songmeanings.net

And there was another response about having a threesome, which I just did not want to post. ;n;"

Please, do listen to the song. I'd like to hear your responses.
Have a great summer!

-Tennie.
One love, one house. No shirt, no blouse.

Sam Tsui - Make It Up

Does it look like I've got everything under control?

Hi there, everyone. I'm back from Michigan, and my team got 12th place out of 54 teams in World Finals for Odyssey of the Mind! My last day of school is tomorrow, too.

Which means:
I can most likely post more! :D
Hooray!

This song is by Sam Tsui, a YouTuber who has an amazing voice. :)
Make It Up is the original song his album is based off of and named after, which was published recently this year in 2013. My friend recommended this song to me, so I decided to share it with you all in spite of my rare posting recently.

The lyrics, to me, describe someone who is Making It Up.
I've got a little confession, I don't know what I'm doing.
That's one line that just gives it away.
Does it look like I've got everything under control? I'm good at faking it. The ice is getting thin, but I'm the only one who knows. I'm only making it up.
That line gives it away, too.

I really enjoy this song. It's upbeat, but it has substance. It talks about living spontaneously.
Here's the official music video:

Do enjoy it.

Have a great week!
-Tennie.
Just play it cool and take it day by day.

New Politics - Harlem

I spend my money on the regular miracles, just like you, like me, like everybody else.

Hello there.

I don't have much to say except for that I'm going to Michigan for a week, and that this song is catchy, upbeat and happy. :D


Have a good week.

Tennie.
Light it up yeah, smoke 'em if you got 'em.

alt-J - Tessellate

My heart still thumps as I bleed.

Hello there. :3

This song is just something I find very hard to interpret without making no sense at all. Thus, I will find many interpretations over the great internet and post them here for you with comments of my own.
I had an epiphany. A woman wants to get back at her husband, so she cheats with some guy (forming the triangle). She bites chunks out of this guy (uses him to get her husband jealous). The poor guy is in love with her but she still loves her husband and has no plans on leaving her husband for this poor guy. Why would she? Her husband is wealthy and her home is lavish. What can this poor guy offer her...nothing. He's handsome and intelligent but doesn't have the money to keep up with this woman's wants and needs. She chews him up and spits him out. 
She is reveling in the love triangle; it's her saying, "triangles are my favorite shape..." She loves the game. She gets back at her husband, while she enjoys the sexual fling with this poor guy. 
But her plan doesn't quite turn in her favor. While she enjoys the game, her husband doesn't. He is uncontrollable jealous when he finds out. What does he do? He kills her and throws in an ocean. She becomes seafood. 
Well the poor guy who really loved her, despite her using him in her game, is haunted by her disappearance. He thinks of her and still desires her, even though he wasn't anything special to him and still had her allegiance to her husband. 
So in the end the one burns (the poor guy), one red (the cunning and beautiful woman), one grins (the husband who shoots his wife to avenge her infidelity.)
The poor guy goes back to his hum drum life, the husband probably goes to jail, and the wife is devoured by seals. 
I wonder if triangles are still her favorite shape?
 -kkw, songmeanings.net
That is one of the most... cynic but interesting comments I have ever read in my life.


The lines about triangles got me for so long. I was like, wait, that does not a triangle make! Then I realized that my perspective was off. It doesn't say that there are two lines in a triangle. It is referencing the individual points, in a triangle there are 3 points, each one where two lines meet. Quite a deep way to express a love triangle.
-dejus, songmeanings.net
Love triangles.
It has to be about a love triangle... Thinking about it know they're actually pretty brilliant lyrics. 
Triangles are my favorite shapeThree points, where two lines meet - A love triangle has 3 relations-ships, all between two people within the group. 
The rest is self explanatory, let the poetry put it together for you :) Awesome lyrics and song! pretty blue actually... 
-delicreep4, songmeanings.net
There are so many more interesting comments and interpretations. :D
What's yours?

-Tennie.

Gavin DeGraw - Chariot

Your favorite fruit is chocolate covered cherries and watermelon, ohh.

Hey there. Happy month of May! Time for the allergies and flowers to spring up, for good or bad. ;)

This song is a very metaphorical song, so if you don't understand it, that's fine with me. I don't quite grasp the meaning of it either, but that's okay. The song itself is still great.

This is a quote for the all-wonderful Gavin DeGraw about this song -
Chariot is a metaphorical vehicle for getting to a place in your mind that is a more broken down and laid back. It's somewhere to be just for a moment--instead of being wrapped up and living wherever you're living and consumed with what you're doing. It's a place to release and chill out.
In the music video, there is a girl who meets Gavin in his simple life and brings him to parties and shows him things that aren't his style. In the end, it's all a green screen, showing that it's just a visual seance.

To me, this song is about simplicity. Like in the first few lines of the song, it talks about favorite fruit. In day to day life, favorite fruit doesn't really matter as much as work or school or other priorities people have placed at a higher need.
Keep those things in mind.

Have a great day.
Until next time,

-Tennie.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (feat. Miranda Lambert) - Same Love

And I can't change, even if I tried; even if I wanted to.

Hello. :D

This song is probably one of the most inspiring songs for gay rights that I've ever heard.

If anything about gays, lesbians, or bisexual people offends, insults, hurts, or harasses you in any way, please feel free to skip over this post and read the previous ones. Please and thank you.

The song isn't very heavy with bass beats, but a simple background beat with Miranda Lambert's elegant vocals and the infamous duo, Ryan Lewis and Macklemore.
To me, this song reminds me to not throw words around, because they might hurt more than they seem.
If you call someone a 'faggot' or 'nigger' for fun, they might not take it that way. Perhaps this sounds very elementary, but often times this little detail in life is overlooked, and more people are hurt everyday.

This song really shines a light on how discriminated gays and lesbians are.
I'm not gay or lesbian, but I do think I understand how it's hard to 'come out of the closet' due to how society treats those people.
Have you read the YouTube comments lately? "Man, that's gay" gets dropped on the daily.
That is true.
And I can't change, even if I tried; even if I wanted to.
Why should they change? They already found it challenging enough to admit their sexuality, knowing the judgment and social acts they would have to go through.
A world so hateful, some would rather die than be who they are.
Many people judge someone the moment they see them. I do that a lot. I'll look at a person on the street who is begging for money, and I subconsciously move a little farther away from them when I'm walking past them.
The suicide rates have gone up recently. People throw themselves off buildings due to the economy, sadness of loss of a family member, or something that has shaken them so badly, it's out of the range of anything they've ever experienced.

I feel I've written quite a lot.
So, I will leave you with this thought.

What you actually say can cause more damage than what you think you've said.
That might not make so much sense, but think of it this way - how you say it and how you've perceived it can be two completely different things.

Have a good day or night, wherever you are. I'm heading to sleep.

-Tennie.
If I was gay, I'd think hip-hop hates me. Have you seen the YouTube comments lately?

Ronald Jenkees - Throwing Fire


Yep, it's a song without lyrics. Otherwise, you would have read some of the lyrics I really liked. :D
But it doesn't matter that this song doesn't have lyrics! It's awesome, upbeat, and pure amazing.

Ronald Jenkees is a talented musician who plays by ear. He played in high school marching band, where he tried reading sheet music but went back to mainly playing by ear.

He currently has three CDs out as of 2012 - Ronald Jenkees (2007), Disorganized Fun (2009), and Days Away (2012).

This piece, Throwing Fire, is from the CD Disorganized Fun.



Although this video is quite old (2008), it's still catchy and definitely epic.
I play the keyboard too, but to me, those who play by ear are more talented than those who read sheet music, like me. I can play by ear, but by default, I'd rather play from sheet music. Sadly. :<

I listen to this track when I play MapleStory, hehe. <3

Enjoy. Have a great day!

-Tennie.

Death Cab for Cutie - What Sarah Said

And it came to me then that every plan is a tiny prayer to Father Time.

Hey there, guys. ^.^

AREN'T YOU GLAD AHRI-CHAN'S BACK?! YOU SHOULD BE! SHE HAS BETTER MUSIC THAN I DO! WOOP WOOP!


Anyways... Hehe.


This song is a song about loss. It's not an upbeat, peppy song. It's a moderately slow, sad song with piano in it. (I had to mention that, because I play piano, haha.)

I can't outright state WHAT this song means, because it's only my opinion. You have your own opinions, and you have your own interpretations of this song.

But this song involves hospital death. If you don't like hospital death, then you might just want to quickly skim over the lyrics and see if you want to listen to this song. If you don't, it's fine with me.

Death Cab For Cutie is a pretty cool band; they're my favorite at the moment. :D

Enjoy the song!

-Tennie.
So who's gonna watch you die?

Hatsune Miku - Shinitagari?

Chorus Lyrics:

(Please note that they lyrics are Japanese. I put in the Romaji version just for the sake of you english people~!^-^)
shinitagari shinde mo ii yo
daremo kamaccha kure yashinai yo
shinitagari shinde mo ii yo
mou kikiakita shinde mo ii yo

shinitagari mada ikiten no
shinitai kuse ni naze ikiten no
shinitagari shinde mo ii yo
shinitain daro shindara ii yo

My Notes/Commentary:

(About time you posted Ahri!) I know I know..School is a butt load of work..Don't blame me! I'm currently updating everything so please bare with me! I completely appologize so by that, I'll do two posts here and two on my other blog! Sounds good? Hope so..

But anyways.. WHERE ARE MY VOCALOID FANS! I have now added a Hatsune Miku song and I will soon put up the Kagamine Twins! I, myself, am not a big fan of Miss Hatsune but doesn't mean I hate her music right?

Basically, this song is about people who FAKE being depressed and show EVERYONE that they are and Miku is basically thelling them "You wanna die? Go ahead and die. No one would care the slightest if you died. So stop this and live life to its fullest..!" I completely agree with Miku here. There is a big difference between depressed people and fake depressed people. The real depressed don't show it and only tell their close friends or no one at all. Fakes show it to everyone. To the fake depressed, I shall sum up this song for you right now. We know you're faking it because you're always happy and when you being to not be noticed, you become all sad and start cutting and showing everyone. You run to everyone and tell them and you keep saying "I hate life" "You don't understand this at all!" "Leave me alone!!" But really you're the one that came to us, didn't tell us a single detail about it, and everyone hates life in their own way so shut up. .-. Stop being so 'depressed' and live life to it's fullest!

Wow..such a long rant about it huh? I know this song seems so mean but at the end, the last line is "Stop doing this and live life to it's fullest!" So it's not a bad song if you think about it like that. Miku is just pissed that everyone is pretending to be depressed and keeps asking her for her help but end up telling her to leave them alone turning Miku to get mad like this. I under stand this a lot. Believe me. I can tell the difference between real depressed and fake depressed. Kinda obvious if you ask me.

Don't hate me after this rant. I just said my opinion and everyone should be able to say their opinion. OKay. I'll get started on my next rant which will be out...TONIGHT!! CYAAA~!^-^

The Goo Goo Dolls - Iris

You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be.

Hey guys. Long time no blog. Haha. I'm so funny. *cough*

This song popped up on Pandora just now, and I'm like, "Oh, let's share this in some other way than Facebook." Thus, here it is.

Many people interpret this song differently, due to their way of perceiving the song and their personal experiences.
To me, this song practically screams about how much love can do to two people. How much one person would give up just to love another.

The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock band from Buffalo, New York, formed in 1986. The band members are John Rzeznik (guitarist, vocalist) and Robby Takac (bassist, vocalist).

I remember reading somewhere about how, in an interview, John Rzeznik wrote this song about his grandmother having Alzheimer's disease. I'm not confirmed on that, I just read it somewhere.

If you take apart this song stanza by stanza, or even verse by verse, it emanates the idea of love and how strong it can be. That may sound corny, but I can't think of any other way to say it.

Enjoy the song. :)
Until next time!
-Tennie.
And I don't want the world to see me, 'cause I don't think that they'd understand.

Phoenix - Entertainment

What you want, and what you do to me. I'll take the trouble that you have in mind.

First of all, I feel really terrible for not updating. I am so sorry.
Second of all, Happy (Belated) St. Patrick's Day!

I am pretty sure that I posted one or two Phoenix songs earlier last year. Probably 1901 and Liztomania. Oh well, those were the only two I was most familiar with. :)

This was on the radio, and I shot up and yelled, "I MUST POST THIS!" at 8:07 in the morning last week. Luckily, I was alone in the car. So, no worries there.
My fuzzy socks beg to differ.
I'm being very random today.

Anyways. I hope you enjoy this song. I believe they recorded this in Paris.

Till next time. Ja ne.
-Tennie.
I love, I love, I love, I notice. I heard it all before I died.

Data Romance - Can't Keep Your Mind Off

You come with too many politics that seem to be digging thoughts; I can't keep your mind off.

Hey guys! It's been a while. Almost a month since my last post.
Oh well. I blame school and the like.

This is a laid-back, yet upbeat song about how it's hard to "keep your mind off" of someone.
"If you can't take the risk, I don't blame you." That line kind of speaks for itself.

To me, the female vocals seem to be taking a first person point of view and speaking to the other person.
"She"'s willing to change and show the ropes of how things go.
That's pretty bland, but I find this slightly hard to explain, as I don't have much experience in this area of life. Hehe?

Yeah. That's all I've got for now.
A song recommendation if you're not a person who gets headaches and migraines really easily from listening to high pitch/frequencies over and over: listen to Lavender Town on YouTube. The 10 hour version. Or at least the 2 minute version. Please? It's my favorite. :)

See you all later!
-Tennie.
If you can't take the risk, I don't blame you.

Edwin McCain - I'll Be

And I'll be your cryin' shoulder, I'll be love's suicide.

Heyo, all. :D
This song is a really great song. It might not be super new, but I don't care.

Oh - Happy Valentine's Day. I guess this song ties in with this day. But blah, I don't like days like these. So meh.
Well, actually, it's a break-up song, so I suppose this can't be for Valentines Day. Oh well.
If you want a cute Valentines Day song, then listen to When Can I See You Again? by Owl City. It's featured in the movie Wreck-It Ralph.

Edwin McCain is an American 43-year-old singer, musician, and songwriter. He is originally from South Carolina, and has been in the music industry since 1991 - that's 22 years and counting. Wow. His music is classified as rock music.

This song was written as a break-up song. Some say it's for a girl who broke up with him to pursue her career and dream in Hollywood - apparently, there's an interview that he did on this song, and the girl who broke up with him was Angelina Jolie. He wrote this song around the time of one of her earlier movies that came out.
The line that says "I'll be the greatest fan of your life." perhaps shows that he'd always "be a fan" of her. To me, this entire song is about how much he'll be there to love and support her.
But hey - everyone's got their own interpretations.

Have a good rest of the day or night, wherever you are. :)

Later.
-Tennie.
I'll be the greatest fan of your life.

Lulu and the Lampshades - You're Gonna Miss Me (Cups)

You're gonna miss me by my hair, you're gonna miss me everywhere, oh - you're gonna miss me when I'm gone.
Hiya, guys.
I'm just here to announce that I won't be able to update regularly anymore, according to my school schedule. It sucks, I know. I'm sorry.

But for now, here's the song.
You're Gonna Miss Me, a traditional folk song, done to the cup beat, is what this is. The first version is done by the duo 'Lulu And The Lampshades', but Anna Kendrick, as Beca in the movie Pitch Perfect, does it too for her 'audition' in the movie scene.

And this is all I really have time for.
Thanks for staying with us, guys.
That offer to be an author still stands.

-Tennie.
Two bottles of whiskey for the way.

Yiruma - Maybe

Hi, guys.

First off - this song is a piano only, no lyrics song.
But it's still a good song.

Second off - thank you for the rising in views. It might be small, but hey - it's something. :D

Yiruma is a South Korean-born pianist who has been around and a hit since the 2000s. He is quite famous for his piano pieces. Two of his most famous ones (which I've actually played on piano before), Kiss The Rain and River Flows In You have been favorites of many.

This song is a very hopeful-sounding song. It's optimistic. I usually don't like optimistic music, but hey - Yiruma is awesome. Thus, I listen to this stuff.

And that's all.
YouTube it. That's all I can really say.

Bye now.
-Tennie.

The 1975 - Chocolate

You say we'll go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our pety coats.

Hey, all.
Life has been busy - recovering from exams (screw you, Mandarin finals. x.x), suffering under tons of homework (I swear, teachers don't understand the definition of 'weekend' - to them, it means "two days to pile homework while they don't see me for class! :D" it's evil.), dealing with idiots (no specification needed there), and finding time and good music to post here.
Thus, I'm hating on life right now.
That offer for new authors is still up, by the way.

This song was the first one I listened to when I first joined SoundCloud (no intentional advertisement - you're gonna have to search it up yourself. hehe.), and it's pretty awesome.
The EP this song is from actually hasn't been released yet, and I couldn't find it on Spotify, but I listen to it over and over again on SoundCloud.
I love this song so much it can't be healthy.

Because of its upcoming release date, I don't have much info on this song and the EP. But - I'll give you guys the link to be nice. :P

The 1975 - Chocolate. This link leads to the MP3 file, which is hosted on SoundCloud. Listen to it, and I'll be happy. ^__^

Okay. I'm done. Bye for now, everyone.
-Tennie.
We're never gonna quit it, no.

Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No. 1

Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No. 1.
Yep, it's the first song that doesn't have lyrics that has touched this blog.
It's a great song, and it's really nice to listen to. It's calming, it's beautiful, this blogger right here is in love with Erik Satie's music at the moment, so yeah. <3

Here's a nice clip with pictures of autumn. The picture quality sucks, but hey - it's for the music, so you can just keep this blog open on a tab while you study. If you have Spotify (it's like a free iTunes on your PC with occasional ads! ack, free advertising. sorry.), then there's a lot of MP3s for you to listen to if you just type in 'Erik Satie' in the search box. :D



I just think that the left hand is a little bit harsh in this rendition, but all pianists' ears are different, so that's just my opinion. ^.^

And here's another one - warning: the left hand does slightly strike out, perhaps to startle you a little bit, but the sound quality is pretty nice, the beginning includes a short bit of rolling waves - it's all extremely calming.
I could listen to Erik Satie all day. <3



Overall, this is a really nice piece worthy of your time and energy.
Listen to it.
Or else.
*insert dramatic music here*

-Tennie.

Giacomo Bondi & The Apple Pies - Blackbird

Blackbird singing in the dead of night, all your life.

This is really calming, let me first state. I really like this. I love the Beatles too, but I may like this version better. DON'T HATE ON ME, YO.

It's a nice, soft-ish song with bird chirps.

There's not really much to say about this song besides the fact that it's extremely calming and peaceful. <3
I believe that this entire album is covering many Beatles songs.
Yeah, it is.

You should listen to it. YouTube doesn't have much; I found this on Spotify.

My posts get shorter and shorter.
-Tennie.
You were only waiting for this moment to arrive.

Muse - Madness

Now I have finally seen the light.

Yo, coconuts. (Ahaha. Cocoa nuts. Nuts of cocoa. Haha.)

Today's song. :)

Muse is really great. The bass beat for this song is always stuck in my head.
Thus, I'm going around school thinking (out loud, probably), "M-m-m-m-m-m-m-m-mah-mah-mah." I'm so cool, right?

YAY HIPSTER NATION. :D
Just kidding.

One album worth taking your time to listen to is Muse's newest album (as of the time this post is being typed up), The 2nd Law.
The 2nd Law was released in 2012.

Muse is an English rock band that has been around since 1994. The band is consisted of Matthew Bellamy (vocalist/guitarist), Chris Wolstenholme (bassist), and Dominic Howard (drummer/percussion). Bored of the ordinary life in their hometown, Teignmouth, Devon, the schoolmates (that sounds so... awkward to type and say. argh.) decided to play around with some instruments and eventually played in a band together.

If you listen to the song, replace every 'madness' with the word 'love' and the song's meaning will slightly reveal more of itself to you. That's all I'm saying about the meaning today. :)

And that's all. I'm glad to slightly be getting back to almost-normal post pace/size.

Later, bananas.
-Tennie.
Now I have finally seen the end. Now I'm expecting you to care.

Zedd - The Legend Of Zelda (Original Mix)

This is too good to be real. I swear, it's just too awesome. <3


And yes, this is another song without lyrics. It doesn't need lyrics, it's too awesome. ;D

I like this remix. It's a lot better than my piano version. Definitely better than mine. This is probably just Zelda-dubstep. Media-dub, as some like to call it.

Listen to it. Study with it. Listen to some other Zedd stuff.

I'm out. I just felt like posting this to procrastinate from homework. :D
Bye guys. Ew, carrots.
-Tennie.

Churchill - I Am Yours


And I'm back with Churchill. :)
THEY ROCK THAT MUCH, YO.

Churchill was here two posts ago, so I'm not going to re-educate you guys on them. But they still rock. <3

This song is calming. It's really nice to listen to. Another song from the same album, Change EP, is Sing Out Your Love. It's extremely calming, and it's just awesome in general.
None of these songs are screamo, unlike the Three Days Grace one I posted last time. :)

I'm thinking of Kurt Cobain. RIP. </3

Anyways. Yeah. I'm really DYING under ALL THIS PRESSURE to get GOOD GRADES (because I'm ASIAN *cough-choke*) and I have TONS of homework, but I NEED TO POST BECAUSE I'VE BEEN DITCHING OUT AND I SUCK.

Yeahhhhhh.

Anyways, heheheheh.
Back to Churchill.
I posted info on them before, here it is again:
Churchill formed in 2008 and are still active. :) Churchill is consisted of five members - Tim Bruns (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Tyle Rima (bass), Bethany Kelly (vocals/keys - which I'm guessing is related to piano), Joe Richmond (DRUMS WOOO.), and Mike Porter (ukulele/banjo/mandolin).
And boom. I have to go back to homework.
This post was a lot of junk.
:-|

I am disappointed in myself.
Bye guys.
-Tennie.

Three Days Grace - (I Hate) Everything About You


Every feeling that I get, but I haven’t missed you yet.
Hey guys. \m/

WE GOT THE 10000 VIEWS! *fangirl screams*

This song isn’t going to have any of my opinions of what the song means, and I’m just going to post several opinions I found online.
I don’t even feel like doing research on Three Days Grace. I’m sorry. I do like TDG, I’m just really tired and have to study for finals, guys. I promise a better post next time.
(Currently listening to Wait and Bleed by Slipknot. I really like this song. <3)

This song means someone you loved screwed you over and you still love them, you miss them when you stop and think about what happened and think about what you could have been when them, and you hate them. So why do you still love them? This song poses that question.
This song is about abusive relationships. Whether it be between a parent and child, a boyfriend and girlfriend or any other derivative of these scenarios, and whether the abusive be sexual, physical or verbal, the victim hates how they are being treated, but has this irrational love for whoever is treating them that way. This song is about the confusion caused by these conflicting feelings within the victim.
Indifference is the killer. 
I never thought this song is about drugs, but it's actually a very interesting way to look at it. Anyway, I think it's clear that is about a sick relationship, two people who love each other but at the same time they hate each other, they can't stand being around the other. Love and hate are closer than we think.

I interpret this song as a guy struggling to discover his feelings for someone - God, a friend, a parent, a sibling, a lover, etc. He can't stand the way they act (whether it be their behavior, their decisions, etc.) but he still can't help but love them.

According to the music video, I think that the song is about the difficulties as a teenager. Mainly it is about this girl that he loves but also it's about his father (he doesn't appear as much as the girl though, but you can see him at 0:43 E.G) and maybe more things as well. There are some drugs in the video, but as I see it they are there to numb his pains. They have no part in the love/hate. One detail is all the teenagers that appear in the video, E.G on 2:40 and forward. I believe that this is a hint that the feelings expressed in the song is about the heavy feelings that many teenagers experiences when they grow up. Some of the classical problems are love troubles and arguments with one’s family, which are in the video. In the very end he smashes a picture frame of a boy (himself I suppose) and a girl. This ensures me that the strongest feelings expressed in the song are the feelings for the girl. As I understand the video the story about him and the girl is a love story where he is deeply in love with her (maybe they even have been in a relationship once) but she does not want him (anymore?) and she dates other guys (possibly to make him jealous). He can't do anything about it. He's just standing there, watching his big love kiss others. The song is about the pain of being in love with her without her loving him. (And if I'm right the pain may also be caused by her cold-heartedness when she wants to make him jealous). "Every roommate kept awake by every sigh and scream we make" suggests that they have been in a relationship. There is a girl appearing at 0:48 (and some other times as well). Could this be the same girl? For if so, I'm pretty sure that they've been dating. I could see two possibilities with these scenes: either the girl have had sex with some other guys (once again, to make him jealous. But it could also be attempt to forget him) but afterwards she ends up missing him. Or this is a flash back vision from their previous relationship (but the guy at 1:37 does not feel like him, which speaks against this theory). She seems sad, but she holds the paper with their initials written in hearts (LL+RM<3). This gives a feeling that she does love him, but does not feel happy about their relationship.
On top of all this pain he does not get along well with his father. His father is drinking (0:16) and hitting him (or at least they had a major argument where he was knocked over (0:42)).
I think this song fits me perfectly!!!! Because the guy I like used to do drugs and he and I slept in the same room with my roommate at college, but me and him had a love/hate relationship... we never fought like out loud but we had our methods of fighting, I hated what he did, but I love him anyways... at least that's my interpretation...
I think this song is about people; one of those people hates the other one but yet loves the other.
Yeah. I really like the one that said ‘Indifference is the killer.’ What does that mean? Well, you’ll have to go find out for yourself.

I just found out that it’s 3DG, not TDG. Sorry. D:

I’ll be off on my torturous journey to... Finals land now. Bye guys.
-Tennie.
I hate everything about you, why do I love everything about you?
