A Hundred Million Suns

"A Hundred Million Suns is the fifth album by alternative rock band Snow Patrol. The album was released in Ireland on October 24, 2008, in the UK and the rest of Europe on October 27, 2008, and in the US on October 28, 2008. The first single from the album was "Take Back the City" which was released on October 10 in Ireland, Germany and Belgium. With a release for the rest of Europe on October 13, 2008 and in France on October 14, 2008." (

Take Back the City - This is the first single from "A Hundred Million Suns". I really can't see the real meaning of the song. Some says it is for the band's city Belfast in Ireland. Some says City means relationship. Just listen and check it out for yourself.

And these are few of the songs from the band's third and fourth album "Final Straw" and "Eyes Open":

Set the Fire to the Third Bar - The song is very haunting. For me, it's about trying to replace your true love. You go bar to bar to find just like her. And when you can't find the one like her, you set your brain trying to pretend you see that specific person, then goes the fire, the false love, the destructive one. Then you feel frustrated on what you did. Normally we close our eyelids, to forget about the cold reality we are facing. To run away with loneliness. Then you see her. The memories of her, just like music to our soul.

Chasing Cars - I just can't get over with the song. It was simply made but has a very deep meaning. Honestly, I really can't figure the real meaning of this song but for me, this song tells about the nature of love. The boy wants the love to knock their hearts not them who will knock love not the people who are telling them to love each other. He's telling his lover that "Let's forget everything and let love find us and understand us, let love nourish deep in our hearts without the effects of people around us." something like that.

When asked about his favorite song, Gary Lightbody, the band's vocals and guitarist replied, "Chasing cars. Just did the vocals for that this morning. The vocals have been refined and I think it's the purest love song i've written. No tinges of darkness or misery, just totally uplifting. "

Run - Wow this song really got me. It's about two lovers who are going to break but neither party wants to end their relationship. It is as if the girl or the boy needs to go far and can't do anything about it. I like the lyrics that goes, "Light up, light up, as if you have a choice". The boy is telling the girl "Be strong, we can do this. Have faith." Wow. Brilliant!

Midnight Hour

Midnight Hour is one of the coolest bands I know. Their song "Running Away" was featured on Ghost Whisperer, an American televison drama. The band is still in the process of working their debut album. On Tuesday, October 28, 2008, James Mitchell, the band's guitarist, explained about their upcoming album to their avid listeners:

"Hey all. I just wanted to post a quick album update. We are constantly asked where one might be able to buy our music. Well, as of right now, nowhere. We are still in the process of working on getting the songs together for our debut album for Interscope. It has been a long and arduous process, but I believe it will pay off. So I apologize that you can't find our music. But I humbly request your patience and continued support. It means the world to us that you guys prove supportive time and time again. We love you and can't wait to put out the album that all of you deserve and that we are proud of. In the meantime, keep checking back for updates.

~James and Midnight Hour"

Running Away - The song is about leaving, being tired of life, RUNNING AWAY. This is the most typical thing we do teenagers. Am i right? Or Am i Right? hehehe.. We want to get away from our past because we're hurt, we're in pain, we think people don't understand us. We know we would give up, we'll be torn apart and may break into pieces. That is why we Run and run and run...

Augustana is an American rock band who are best known for their single Boston. Their second album entitled All the Stars and Boulevards was released September 6, 2005 and reached #1 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart and #96 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The band's latest album was released on April 29, 2008 and was entitled Can't Love, Can't Hurt.

Dan Layus, the lead singer, says about their latest cd - "There's a lot of leaving," Dan says, of the album's many beginnings and endings, takeoffs and landings. "That's pretty much the theme of the record-looking for a home and not being able to find it, for a multitude of reasons. I was looking for a home in a person. Be it a real love or just one I had in my head. I wish that by the last song there was a conclusion but I'm still figuring it out myself."

Boston - This song talks about starting over. Boston is about the want for something new and something different from ordinary. There would come a time that we don't want the things happening in our lives anymore so we want something extraordinary, very different from our lifestyles. There we find contentment, BOSTON. Hope we will find our BOSTON soonest!

Sweet and Low - Basically, the song is about not giving up on love. Because, it's better to put your heart through pain and challenges and hopefully find love, than to not love and end up all alone! Yeah right!

"I said hell is so close, and heavens out of reach,
But I ain't giving up quite yet,
I've got too much to lose"

More than a Love Song - The song is sooo cool. It tells about two people who love each other in ways words cannot explain. Love is More than a Love Song!!

OK Now >> Jon McLaughlin

By Request!

Jon McLaughlin's newest album entitled OK Now was released last October 7 of this year. "OK Now debuted within the top 50 of the Billboard 200, at number forty-nine (#49), marking his highest debut to date, selling over 10,700. The next week though, it dropped to number 188, selling over 3,000 in its second week, to come at a total of nearly 14,000." (

Beating My Heart - The song tells us about a man who can't see the simple meanings of life and the purpose of it not until he found "her". But when he opened his eyes from reality, discovering the beauty of life, all he only knows is that "she" is the one who keeps beating his heart.

Human - A great song with a wonderful lyrics. Because of the great meaning, this song was played on SCRUBS and GHOST WHISPERER. After all, we are HUMAN.

"After all we're only human,
Always fighting what we're feeling,
Hurt instead of healing,
After all we're only human,
Is there any other reason why we stay instead of leavin' after all"

So Close - Woooow. This song really touches me down my spine. It gives me the bumps. Wow! Amazing song huh? So Close is a song that talks about two people finally finding the right one and never want to lose him/her. Sooooo "hearty" and SWEET!

"So close to reaching that famous happy end
Almost believing this was not pretend
And now you're beside me and look how far we've come
So far we are so close"

808s and Heartbreak

Kanye West's newest album, entitled 808s and Heartbreak, will be released on November 25, 2008. Originally, it is to be released on December 16, 2008 but West pushed the date three weeks earlier because he want to release the album as soon as possible. Please get a copy of this album. HE WILL NEVER FAIL YOU, i promise!!

Here are the two cuts from his newest album:

Heartless - Some people think that this song is better than his Love Lockdown. For me, both are really great.

Love Lock - The song is very vague. It means several things. For me, it's about being in a relationship, and not loving someone as well as you'd love to. OUCH!

HAARP is a live and video album of Muse. It was released on March in UK and and on April in US, this year. It ranked no.2 on UK , New Zealand, Norwegian and Mexican Album Charts while it ranked 46 on US billboard 200.

Starlight - This song is different! In my interpretation, it talks about someone who is taken far away from his love ones. He's asking her/them never to leave him while he's holding her/them.

Unintended - A beautiful song that tells us about a man who has found the girl he will always love but he's not ready to love yet because the man is busy mending the broken pieces of his past relationship. Man, this is soooo hard! hehehe..

Gavin DeGraw

Gavin DeGraw started in Manhattan clubs alongside local pianists Andrew West and Lenny Revell, drawing several of his home town fans. His songs "I Don't Want to Be" and "We Belong Together" were chosen as the themesongs for One Tree Hill, a teen drama casted by Chad Michael Murray, and in the film Tristan and Isolde respectively. And congrats to him! These beautiful songs made his break.


I Don't Want to Be - The song rules!! It tells about being you for you and not changing for anyone. Cool huh? As the song goes:

"I don’t want to be anything
Other than what I’ve been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind
I’m tired of looking around rooms wondering what I gotta do
Or who I’m supposed to be
I don’t want to be anything other than me"

We Belong Together - This one is soooooo relaxing. One of the beautiful songs you will hear. It will melt your heart. The song talks about two people in love who overcome obstacles to be with each other.

I'm In Love with a Girl - An awesome song from a freaking awesome artist! Hell yeah! This song really sounds great! He wants to tell everybody that he is in love with a girl. He also want to tell us that there are lots of people who you may think you love, or think they love you. But its different when you do find that person who loves you back as much as you love them. Whallah! Magic!

Dave Matthews Band

Good news to Dave Matthews Band fanatics!! According to, Dave Matthews claimed that the band's next album is currently scheduled to be released in early 2009. Despite the band's keyboardist, Butch Taylor, left the band, and after the band's saxophonist LeRoi Moore died from an accident, Dave Matthews Band will continue to play. Last September 10, they concluded a concert-for-a-cause in Madison Square Garden in New York for lung cancer research (Stand Up For A Cure). Nice band huh?

Let's bring up the memories!

Crash into Me - As what others say, this song tells about a teenage boy who fantisize a woman. But for me, the song is about a broken love that he wants to feel again.

Crush - This is one of those songs that actually makes you feel something. Just listen to the words and you feel amaze, especially if you have someone in your life right now. It feels good knowing that he feels what you're feeling right now.
