Listening to Music Online

Reading Time: 1 minuteEver since I last reformatted my hard disk a couple of weeks back, I have yet to restore my old library of songs for a good reason, the library is getting stale. I have decided to start my library fro scratch. In the meantime, I am streaming my music fix from the Internet, chiefly from 8tracks.com. It is great that I am on high speed network no matter where I  go now, cuz the stream is sure bandwidth intensive. 8tracks…

Reading Time: 2 minutesI had another draft regarding my interest in choral music. I decided to trash it since it was becoming more of a recounting post. I try to keep it brief here. I always wanted to be in choir ever since primary school right after a performance my primary school choir put up during an assembly. I did not manage to join my primary school choir. Nonetheless, it did not dampen my enthusiasm. After primary school, I have joined 3 choirs…

Reading Time: 1 minuteAbandon entouré d’abandon,  tendresse touchant aux tendresses…  C’est ton intérieur qui sans cesse  se caresse, dirait-on; se caresse en soi-même,  par son propre reflet éclairé.  Ainsi tu inventes le thème  du Narcisse exaucé. Morten Lauridsen

Reading Time: 1 minuteSince young, I am immersed in classical music just because my dad used to insist on listening to 92.4FM while driving then. However, my formal introduction to classical music came was when I had to go for music lessons in secondary school. Don’t get me wrong, primary school does have music lessons too, but the focus was somewhere else then. In the first lesson, we were introduced to two pieces, Air on G string and Toccata and Fugue in D…

[Youtube] Time to Say Goodbye – Fountain Act

[Youtube] Time to Say Goodbye – Fountain Act

Reading Time: 1 minuteDubai has this mega fountain setup that goes with the song, Time to Say Goodbye by Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli. Enjoy the sight. P.S. You may want to view it in HD and fullscreen. Yes, it is that good (I seldom open Youtube/Facebook videos in HD and in fullscreen).

Big Bang – Haru Haru 하루 하루

Reading Time: 3 minutesBoth videos are different music videos of the same song. I prefer the first one as it tells a sad story of the girl not wanting her guy to know about her illness and get hurt due to it. His friends played along but ended up telling him. However he did not manage to say his last goodbye.

So sad, good things don’t last. RIP MJ

Reading Time: 1 minuteTwitter, Plurk, Facebook were buzzing with the news of Michael Jackson’s death. I was at first sceptic about it. Hey, a King, or King of Pop don’t just drop dead like that, but he was only human It was only when I linked on all the links (like after 12 hours from the initial out pour of messages) I acknowledge his death. Despite of not listening to his songs now, I still have great memories of his songs. Who could…
