Eep! Stupid exams made me neglect my journals. Oh well, two updates today. The second is miscellaneous songs -- I tried to make the songs as varied as possible i.e. all different languages, both male and female, and definitely different types of music.

Enjoy the update!

Artist: 许茹芸 (xu ru yun / Valen Hsu)
Song: 日光机场 (Palace de Sunlight Aiport)
Language: Mandarin
File type: MP3 in a zip file (no password)
Download size: 4.86MB
My Thoughts: For the most part this is a very soft, breezy ballad -- it's almost like she's breathing out the words. The song seems so delicate it makes me think of silver spun spiderwebs. And in places the song swells to a crescendo like a tide coming in and breaking on the shore. This is one of my favourite songs of all time.

Lyrics: (yeah you can tell how much I love this song by the fact that I'm supplying the lyrics ~_^)

啦......
啦......
啦......
啦......
天一亮的机场
含著冰的眼眶
日光太温暖
一碰溶化泪两行
没有根的飘荡
孤单已难计算
绝望莫非是
爱你最後的答案
从云端到路上
从纠缠到离散
有缘太短暂
比无缘还惨
从昨天到今天
从今天到明天
时间原来是欺骗
剪一段日光
解爱情的霜
让我窝在你的胸膛
埋葬我的脸
留一段日光
在黑夜里流浪
任随思念时光倒转
再爱你一场

Artist: 梁咏琪 (liang yong qi / Gigi Leung)
Song: 驗光 (Floodlights)
Language: Cantonese
File type: MP3
Download size: 3.82MB
My Thoughts: I love this mid-tempo song. It's so not a ballad but it has that slightly slow and haunting quality. I hate to admit it but the music kind of reminds me of Britney Spears's "Toxic", only in the sense that it's kind of pop/rock. Gigi's voice is as always, rather lovely.

This is the kind of song I'd imagine as being played in a movie scene where the hero is racing away in the dark of night from a big explosion on his super cool, super fast motorbike while the heroine is clinging on to him from behind, her long black hair streaming out as she thinks about how much she loves him but how he doesn't see her as more than a friend/colleague. Yeah, that kind of a song -- wistful thinking, but sexy.

Artist: Rip Slyme
Song: Rakuen Baby
Language: Japanese
File type: MP3
Download size: 4.28MB
My Thoughts: Oh god, this song is so boppy that I have to fight the urge to get up and dance like a maniac. This is a fun summer song. Pop, slightly latino (well, not so much latino but there's maraccas and the beat strongly reminds me of a beach party on some remote Pacific island with white sand and blue waters ... yeah, kinda Hawaiian). The guys can't really sing, but then again, they're mostly rappers, which makes sense since the group was originally Lip's Rhyme.

Great song. Fantastic beat. You'll be playing it over and over again because it's that catchy. Perfect for a summer theme song.
