Song of the Day

Falling Slowly – Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova 

There are some things that only comes once in a lifetime. Blessed are those people who recognize it when it’s right in front of them. Lucky are those people who find it for the second time because some people just let it pass them by without noticing it, and kept searching for it all their life.

 

Music Spotlight #1: The Corrs

The Corrs.

I’ve loved the music of this Irish band, The Corrs, since I was in grade school. The 4 member band of siblings; Andrea (main vocal/tin whistle), Sharon (violin/vocals), Caroline (drums, piano, bodhran, vocals) and Jim (guitar, piano, keyboard, vocals) were amazing, beautiful and equally talented.  I love their music and style, and especially love their album “Talk on Corners” and pretty much was one the staple playlist of my early adolescent years. It makes me sad that they are not performing as a group anymore since they all moved on with life with their respective families. I love their unplugged performances that were mostly featured on MTV. This song in particular, Runaway, is one of my favorites. I wish I could have gone to their concert, even just once. 😦

 

I’ve been feeling kind of under the weather lately and somehow, listening to their music soothes me. Brings back old memories of when I was younger, more carefree and oblivious to the real world. Nostalgic?

 

Simple memories.

Beautiful Seoul Project

 

Beautiful Seoul Project – Seoul Time Lapse 2011 by Oh Choong Young.

Wow. Just wow.

 

I can recognize some of the places, buildings, neighborhoods and landmarks shown in the video and it makes me smile with pleasure. I just got back from Korea last summer and I am already planning my next trip back sometime next year. I love the buzzing people, the unique culture, the laid back countryside, its gorgeous islands, and the beautiful language. I want to see more of the country, visit temples, mingle and drink with the locals, trek a mountain or two. I’m glad I stumbled upon this incredible video. It gives me a glimpse of the place I most likely will name one of my favorite places on earth. Truly, after watching this video, I have to ask myself: “How could I be so fascinated by this country so much?”

I still don’t have the answer, but I’m more than willing to find out.

Summer is here!

Song of the Day

As One – Drive

Clear blue skies, warm beach sand, sunblock scent. Hats, sunglasses and flip-flops. Roadtrip by the coastline, camping at the lake or maybe a cruise to the islands? What will summer bring us this year?
