Here Comes The Sun is one of my favorite song of all time. Its beautiful vibe seems uplifting. My most favorite performance of this song is when George Harrison sings the song with Paul Simon in SNL back in 1976. I almost cried watching the videos a few years ago. I still do.

Moonlite Moments

I get a lot of inspiration while rounded up this playlist. On my cover song playlist, Puty mentioned about Ryan Adam’s cover of Taylor Swift’s 1989, so I put one of my favorite track from the album.

I put the Haley Reinhart’s cover version instead of Elton Jhon’s Bennie and The Jets because her voice has this beautiful raspy voice. Haley might be one of my all time American Idol’s favorite contestant.

I’ve also been watching a lot of movies this holiday, Quentin Tarantino’s and Harry Potter The Deathly Hallows are one of them. Can’t help to put some of the soundtrack here.

Did I tell you that one of my favorite scene from Harry Potter of The Deathly Hallows part 1 is the original scene that wasn’t in the book? The scene between Harry and Hermione slow dancing after Ron left is quite memorable for me. Maybe my most favorite amongst all the installment. There is some amount of pain watching the pair awkwardly and platonically dance to a Nick Cave’s song. A painful grow up. The scene is beautiful.

Most of the time, I might prefer a fast paced and loud music, but this playlist is what I imagined to be a background of slow dancing under the moonlite. Or under the rain.

Cover Song Mixtapes #1

It’s been awhile since I posted Sunday’s playlist. I’ve been dying to make one, but today, let’s mix it a little. I really want to share some of my favorite cover song videos. Over the years, I often find new bands by seeing them covering famous songs. When the band founded by labels and release an original album, it becomes such a joy because I kind of see their awesomeness evolved through times. Cover songs tends to show off more about artist’s musical approach to another artist’s song. Too little improvisation made the cover looks dull. Make too many adjustments, then it flies off its original vibe. That’s why it’s always interesting. There is no rule, there is no right and wrong, there’s only good music.

Postmodern Jukebox – Sugar, We’re Going Down (Fall Out Boy)

Sugar, We’re Goin Down is hands down my most favorite Fall Out Boy’s song and Postmodern Jukebox is hands down one of my favorite channel for a cover song. Re-imagining pop songs by adding an old school vibe, they brings back the fun and the sultry of 1920’s – 1950’s music to the future. With big instruments and fresh arrangements, Postmodern Jukebox is successfully made a time machine.

Feel Good Inc.,

Sunday has been the day I really feel like weekend. The atmosphere is different than Saturday. It is when I feel I can accomplish a lot of things, cover a lot of grounds, and still consider it as a lazy day. Watching downloaded movies, watching my favorite reality show, listening some cover songs on YouTube, cooking, exercising, doing useless stuffs on the phone, etc. It is also the day that I feel insecure of, especially past 6 PM, because Monday screeching out and only couple of hours left before I crashed into another traffic and munching out some other paperworks.

I pulled out his playlist while cleaning up my harddisk. Tokyo Jihen and Monkey Majik. Juno and Scott Pilgrim vs The World. Such a gem. Anyway, enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
