Quadruple Cheesy-ness

Pardon me guys. I just can't get enough of this 'cheesy-ness' haha!! Now, this time I'm posting not just one video but four videos from four great bands. So hope you bear with my cheesyness, though this is really really going to be a tough one, 'coz this is quadruple the cheesyness of my previous posts. hehe!!

DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL

First Video: This video of "Stolen" is from one of my favorite bands 'Dashboard Confessional'. From the time I've heard their song "Hands down" I felt I needed to buy their record, well I didn't, 'coz I found out my brother has one. Haha!! Too bad they've become a little bit mainstream. I wonder when are they going to have a new album.

Here's an acoustic/orchestral version! Para mas 'cheesy'! haha!! I think this track would be a nice background music on a date. (hmmm.. thought bubble insert!) haha!!





We watch the season pull up its own stakes
And catch the last weekend of the last week
Before the gold and the glimmer have been replaced,
Another sun soaked season fades away

You have stolen my heart

Invitation only, grant farewells
Crush the best one, of the best ones
Clear liquor and cloudy eyed, too early to say goodnight

You have stolen my heart

And from the ballroom floor we are in celebration
One good stretch before our hibernation
Our dreams assured and we all, will sleep well

You have stolen
You have stolen my heart

I watch you spin around in the highest heels
You are the best one, of the best ones
We all look like we feel

You have stolen my
You have stolen my heart



AMBER PACIFIC

Second Video: This is the video of Poetically Pathetic by Amber Pacific, another favorite band of mine. Amber Pacific is a Seattle band, like Nirvana. Their songs are really great from the lyrics to the arrangement. They've just released an EP with 3 new tracks on i-tunes. The new tracks are: The Good Life; Don't Let It Fall Through and The Right Place At The Wrong Time

Here's the video of "Poetically Pathetic".





I'm Thinking of the words to say,
I'd like to think that this was fate.
Reference to a song you love,
Spell confusion with a "K"
Like a star without its strings,
I'm hanging here on these two wings.
For that smile and those eyes
I'm falling

If time could stop, how could I make this more poetic?
When there's nothing more pathetic to be said

You bring me out, show me light,
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too afraid to look inside.
You carry truth, and make me smile.
If it were you and me tonight,
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you,
For you...

If you ever had the chance,
Would you make your life seem right?
Or would you only hold it back,
The good times, the hard, and the bad.
Whatever you say is alright,
Just as long as there's no doubt.
Could you look me in the eye
and say hopes died?

If time could stop, how could I make this more poetic?
When there's nothing more pathetic to be said

You bring me out, show me light,
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too afraid to look inside.
You carry truth, and make me smile.
If it were you and me tonight,
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you.

Our wish,
Each time,
Keeps me returning to you,
Night after night
Lift me up as high as the clouds that won the sky,
For you and I

You bring me out, show me light,
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too afraid to look inside.
You carry truth, and make me smile,
If it were you and me tonight,
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you

You bring me out, show me light,
I'm sorry if I hide, I'm too afraid to look inside
You carry truth, and make me smile
If it were you and me tonight,
I would tame the stars and save the brightest one for you,
For you...



Third Video: This one's an old one, from The Police, the English Rock band in the 80's wherein Sting was the vocalist back then. The band who popularized the song "Every Breath you Take". The video you'll about to see is a performance by Sting of the song It's "Every Little Thing she does is Magic", which was an original from The Police. I guess most of you know this, because our very own Paolo Santos had a cover of this in one of his albums.





Though Ive tried before to tell her
Of the feelings I have for her in my heart
Every time that I come near her
I just lose my nerve
As Ive done from the start

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

Do I have to tell the story
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
Its a big enough umbrella
But its always me that ends up getting wet

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

I resolve to call her up a thousand times a day
And ask her if shell marry me in some old fashioned way
But my silent fears have gripped me
Long before I reach the phone
Long before my tongue has tripped me
Must I always be alone?

Every little thing she does is magic
Everything she do just turns me on
Even though my life before was tragic
Now I know my love for her goes on

LAST VIDEO: And to finish this off, I'll leave you with this song from... drum roll please! hehe! Of course the list isn't complete without a song from the band of my demi-God Kurt Cobain, Nirvana! hehe! The song is "About a Girl".





I need an easy friend
I do with an ear to lend
I do think you fit this shoe
I do what you have a clue

Ill take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I cant see you every night free
I do

Im standing in your light
I do hope you have the time
I do pick up number two
I do keep a date with you

I cant see you every night free
I do, I do, I do
