Of Soothing Voice and Cruisin' Songs

I love Colbie Caillat.

She’s got a very soothing voice.

Listening to her makes me feel all Bubbly and warm inside. Doesn’t help when her lyrics go something like this…

…It starts in my toes and I crinkle my nose
Where ever it goes I always know
That you make me smile please stay for a while now
Just take your time where ever you go…

It’s funny how a song could affect a person so much. It could influence your state of being. When I listen to this song, my mind went back to the very first time I saw my husband. He was at the airport and I was there to pick him up. I was so nervous. I kept thinking, “What if he’s dead ugly?” or “what if he smelled like a skunk?” Thank god he wasn’t dead ugly and he smelled really nice. When I saw him that day I smiled. Smiled like an idiot. Felt all tingly inside.

Anyways, yeah back to the songs that could influence ones feelings. When I listen to Sunday Morning by Maroon 5 it made me feel like everyday is a Sunday. It relaxes me and it made me feel like I’m cruising in a convertible along the beach coast. Incidentally, Maroon 5 is coming for a concert here. I don’t know exactly when but a friend of mine is the organiser for the concert and I told him I want a backstage pass. Heh…Adam Levine is simply divine.

When you’re feeling sad and depressed, I suggest you listen to these songs. A real pick-me-upper :

- K.T. Tunstall’s Suddenly I See
- Carly Simon’s Let The River Run
- Pink Martini’s Sympathique
- Kanye West’s Stronger
- Lily Allen’s Alfie
- Mika’s Lollipop (some may find this song annoying...haha…I hated the singer because
of his ridiculous looking hair but the song is quite catchy. Should give it a try); and
- Last but certainly not least…Will.I.Am’s I Got It From My Momma!

If you going on a holiday, especially if you’re going to a beach make sure you have all the songs above in your IPod. Gerenti Gegarrr punya!

Yes, it's true. Songs can really influence your mood.

I stopped listening to love songs a long time ago, because not being in a relationship means all I can do is dream about it, and that sucks! Heheh.

akula said...

Profession of Violence - UFO. Now that would really sooth my soul. :)

vedd said...

Listening to favorite songs in an iPOD at a secluded beach/island, with the right camera equipments, waiting for that golden moment during sunrise/sunset and your loved ones near you.. well that is really soothing and relaxing :-)

AphroditeKuzz said...

Hello Sherie, this just a stranger passing by and doing a U turn here at your beautiful page.
Love the design, your choice of colours and especially your eloquence.
All this tells me you are a lady with class and elegance, and prompting me to say, when you hold a dozen roses and look in the mirror, you'd see 13 roses.
I read your beautiful story of your first meeting with your beloved, and again prompting me to dedicate this song lyrics to both of you...
Where do I begin
To tell the story
Of how greatful love can be,
The sweet love story
That is older than the sea.

That sings the truth about the love he brings to me
Where do I start?

With the first hello,
he gave the meaning
To this empty world of mine,
That never did.
Another love another time
he came into my life,
And made a living fine
He fills my heart.

He fills my heart
With very special things,
With angel songs
With wild imaginings,
he fills my soul
With so much love,
That anywhere I go
I'm never lonely,
With him along who could be lonely,
I reach for his hand
Its always there.

How long does it last?
Can love be measured by the hours in a day,
I have no answers no,
But this much I can say,
I know I'll need him till this love song burn away
And he'll be there...
How long does it last?
Can love be measured by the hours in a day,
I have no answers no,
But this much I can say,
I know I'll need him till this love song burn away,
And he'll be there

With my very best regards to both of you,
A stranger who stopped by.

Ok, first of all, thats one nice stranger la.. what a sweet song..
2ndly, Maroon 5???? Adam Levine??? I wanna go!!!!!!!!!!!
seterusnya, the only songs that I actually like in your song choices are Lily Allen's Alfie, Maroon 5's Sunday Morning and Colbie Caillat's Bubbly. I think you also should have a listen to these songs:
Tina Dico- One
Hope- Who am I to say?
Missy Higgins- Where I stood ( I think u heard this one)
Marie Digby- Spell

P/s: I posted Haris vids at youtube :) username would be ruffangel. And posted new pics of Haris n Rifqi on frenster

When I came back after many years abroad, found my first love was marrying my friend. Flybait's Kasih Berubah was lagu layan airmata back then.


Da Winged Acrophobic said...

Being (quite) an ol' fogey, my uplifting choice would be Simple Minds' "Alive and Kicking". Feeling really like an ol' fogey sebab I haven't heard any of your uplifting songs!
