Music Mondays: The Lonely (Christina Perri)

Imagine a music that can send a thrill down your spine and have your hair stand on end. And imagine one that can give you a powerful imagery just by reading the lyrics while listening to the melody.

Such was the case when I first saw Christina Perri’s The Lonely. Immediately I saw a wooden doll before me (or a mannequin, a girl puppet, or the doll on the music box), dancing across a darkened room, remembering that a long, long time ago, there was once someone there to hold her hand and dance with her.

Now there’s only me…

I was actually supposed to feature Jar of Hearts for this week. But this one’s really something.

Did you experience the same spine chilling feeling I did? If not for the wooden doll, the music could be a score to a really scary movie, don’t you think? Even the typewriter, the writings on the wall, and the burning paper give the same feeling.


Different Movies, All About Choice

During the first weekend of January, I decided to have a movie marathon. I’ve had several movies at home I haven’t watched and it seemed that it was a good time to catch up on them. Oddly enough, though they were of different genres, there was one underlying theme: choice.

  • The Matrix Trilogy
  • Something Borrowed
  • 300: Rise of the Empire
  • extra: Once Upon A Time S04E12 (Maid Marian)

Thanks to the above movies, with Serendipity being the trigger, my Fridays have become reflective so much so that I had to share my thoughts to the rest of the world.

Music Mondays: Distance (Christina Perri feat. Jason Mraz)

When is it alright to cross the line and give in to falling in love? How do we know when to move on from being friends to being so much more? And how do we keep on pretending when the other one is not yet ready?

Today’s Music Monday is one I just stumbled upon when I let YouTube play to its heart’s content. I mean, I started with last week’s Music Monday and then this one came along. It was such a nice surprise for me to learn that Jason Mraz and Christina Perri (I loved her since her Jar of Hearts became a hit via SYTYCD) had this duet. Great voice blending!

In another time, a different plane of existence, I could’ve been the one singing this song.

The best part is falling.
