Erik Santos' "Say You'll Never Go"

I love this version of Erik Santos' "Say You'll Never Go". I think this was the soundtrack of "Sanaq'y Maulit Muli," an ABS-CBN teleserye. I like this version more than the Neocolours version, whish I think is the original. For you guys out there who wants to watch the music video of Erik Santos, here it is:


My Top Ten Michael Jackson Songs

I was born in the 80's and I think it was the decade when Michael Jackson Songs defeated the air. I love his songs from his childhood career up to thge time of his death. When I was young, I remember the songs that my young cousins play on the radio using cassette tapes, like Thriller, Billy Jean, Rock With You, and so on. However, I appreciate his songs more when he died. That was the time when I thought of my top ten favotire Michael Jackson's songs. Here they are:      

1. Thriller-this is my best MTV of all time, best dance step of all time.

2. Billy Jean-I like the moonwalk here.

3. Heal the World-I love the message of this song.

4. One Day in Your Life-The melody is excellent, with Jackson's adolescent voice.

5. Happy-features Jackson's tiny voice.

6. Rock With You

7. Beat It

8. Man in the Mirror

9. Ben-about his pet mouse.

10. I Just Can't Stop Loving You

That's all folks!

In My Dreams by Reo Speedwagon

There are nights when I dream about flying. Of course I know that most of our dreams are meaningless, however, some dreams are somewhat premonitions about our future. Dreaming about flying for myself means foretelling me that I will fly someday. Fly in the sense of achieving aspirations. I remember my cousin's self thought quotation "If you never try to fly, you'll never feel what it's like to soar", sounds inspiring. So, whenever I listen to Reo Speedwagon's version of the song "In My Dreams", I feel that all my burdens are gone away, I feel a sigh of relief. Here's the lyrics:

In My Dreams
REO Speedwagon
(Words & Music: Kevin Cronin & Tom Kelly)
From: "Life As We Know It"

There was a time some time ago
When every sunrise meant a sunny day, oh a sunny day
But now when the morning light shines in
It only disturbs the dreamland where I lay, oh where I lay
I used to thank the lord when I'd wake
For life and love and the golden sky above me
But now I pray the stars will go on shinin'
You see in my dreams you love me

Daybreak is a joyful time
Just listen to the songbird harmonies, oh the harmonies
But, I wish the dawn would never come
I wish there was silence in the trees, oh the trees
If only I could stay asleep
At least I could pretend you're thinkin' of me
'Cause nighttime is the one time I am happy
You see in my dreams

We climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us
We are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me
In my dreams

I keep hopin' one day I'll awaken
And somehow she'll be lying by my side
And as I wonder if the dawn is really breakin'
She touches me and suddenly I'm alive

And, we climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us
We are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me
In my dreams

And we climb and climb and at the top we fly
Let the world go on below us
We are lost in time
And I don't know really what it means
All I know is that you love me
In my dreams oh oh oh oh in
In my dreams

Midnight Blue by ELO

I like old songs but I think Midnight Blue is not so old as others think. If I'm not mistaken it was written and released in the 80's.
When I was young, I often heard this song from the radio. I listen as my mother hum the song. Nowadays, whenever I hear Midnight Blue, I often have mixed feelings of sadness, relief, pleasure, ...I don't know. All I know is that, I like the melody of it. I think it will be my themesong for myself in the following days because my girlfriend will leave the country to work abroad. Well...let's get ready to be senti...haha. Here's the lyrics:

Midnight Blue
I see the lonely road that leads so far away,
I see the distant lights that left behind the day
But what I see is so much more than I can say
And I see you in midnight blue.

I see you cryin' now you've found a lot of pain,
And what you're searchin' for can never be the same,
But what's the difference cos' they say what's in a name.
And I see you in midnight blue.


I will love you tonight,and I will stay
By your side,lovin' you,I'm feelin' midnight blue.

I see you standing there far out along the way,
I want to touch you but the night becomes the day,
I count the words that I am never gonna say
And I see you in midnight blue.

Repeat Chorus

Can't you feel the love that I'm offering you,
Can't you see how it's meant to be,
Can't you hear the words that I'm saying to you,
Can't you believe like I believe,
It's only one and one it's true
Still I see you in midnight blue.

I see beautiful days and I feel beautiful ways
Of loving you,everything's midnight blue.

Repeat Chorus

I love Michael Jackson's "Thriller"

I absolutely love the song "Thriller" by Michael Jackson not just because of its good lyrics and mtv but also because of its dance step. Dancing is my frustration because I have two left feet.I appreciated the song more when Jackson died last 2009.I also watched the dance steps in the movie of Jennifer Garner "13 Going on 30". Don't forget that the "Cebu inmates" also performed this dance and became YouTube sensation last 2007.

Thriller lyrics
Songwriters: Temperton, Rod;

It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

You hear the door slam and realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination, girl!
But all the while you hear the creature creeping up behind
You're out of time

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes, girl
Thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

Night creatures calling, the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escaping the jaws of the alien this time
(They're open wide)
This is the end of your life

They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on every side
( From: )
They will possess you unless you change that number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together, yeah
All through the night I'll save you from the terror on the screen
I'll make you see

That this is thriller, thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a
Killer, diller, chiller, thriller here tonight

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
Girl, I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, thriller, ow!

(I'm gonna thrill ya tonight)
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'alls neighborhood

I'm gonna thrill ya tonight, ooh baby
I'm gonna thrill ya tonight, oh darlin'
Thriller night, baby, ooh!

The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom

And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

I always sing in videoke every weekend just at home. The moment I sing, I don't forget to hit the number 30635 on the remote control because this is the number combination for the song "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". My desire to come back and live in the province is the force that drives to like this song. I also like the melody, it stimulates my singing apetite hehe. For those who don't know the lyrics of the song, here it is:

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

When are you gonna come down
When are you going to land
I should have stayed on the farm
I should have listened to my old man
You know you can't hold me forever
I didn't sign up with you
I'm not a present for your friends to open
This boy's too young to be singing the blues

So goodbye yellow brick road
Where the dogs of society howl
You can't plant me in your penthouse
I'm going back to my plough

Back to the howling old owl in the woods
Hunting the horny back toad
Oh I've finally decided my future lies
Beyond the yellow brick road
What do you think you'll do then
I bet that'll shoot down your plane
It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
To set you on your feet again
Maybe you'll get a replacement
There's plenty like me to be found
Mongrels who ain't got a penny
Sniffing for tidbits like you on the ground
[repeat chorus]
