I went to a cobbler
To fix a hole in my shoe
He took one look at my face
And said, "I can fix that hole in you"

Get Set Go

Photobucket

One thing that amazes me about Get Set Go is their capability to express anger while chanelling it to sweet and mellow songs much more intended for poppy pop songs. You thought you're listening to another love-me-coz-i-love-you-masquerade thats heard everywhere, til you hear the lyrics and begin to understand the story of the songs. Not to confuse you though, this band hit the spot in balancing the melody and words of the songs, just in their own momentum. And yes they can also be romantic.+/-

Get Set Go

Get Set Go is a band formed in 2003 in Highland Park, Los Angeles, California. They are generally seen as indie rock. Their main songwriter is known as "Mike TV." They are known for a tendency to mix dark lyrics with upbeat or "catchy" melodies.

I know Ive been posting mediocre stuff lately aside from the exhausting recovery of my playlists. With the midterms coming, tons of return demonstrations (guess now what i do...) endless homeworks and others, Id be lucky to be able to sleep 4 hours every day. Yeah, it sucks BIGTIME!
But folks dont worry, Ill make up to you soon.
Also, I wanna share my thanks for making me no.1 in elbo.ws last week. Still cant believe it coz compare to other much better elite blogs there, mine is rather juvenile in an obnoxious way. You may notice that Im still experimenting on what I really want to do with this blog. +/-

Meanwhile, I found a song thats currently featured on the new ad of iPod nano commercial. iPod nano commercials have been known to be very influential in terms of promoting and introducing the music of artists in their ads. Also it helps that these artist have top-notch sounds. Start naming now coz there's a lot! Chairlift was given this chance. The song in the ad is "Bruises" which is from their album "Does You Inspire You".

I haven't listen to their other songs but this one doesn't need to be complicated to be appreciated.

I know I gotta post this even though the blogosphere already swarming over this track(yeah, im a lil late). Here is the Love Lockdown mp3 Kanye just dropped in his blog (that was fast). I cant decide what to feel about this.+/-

I'm not lovin' you, the way I wanted to
What I had to do, had to run from you
I'm in love with you, but the vibe is wrong
And that haunted me, all the way home
So ya never know, never never know
Never know enough, 'til it's over love
'Til we lose control, system overload
Screamin' no no no, no no
I'm not lovin' you, the way I wanted to
See I wanna move, but can't escape from you
So I keep it low, keep a secret code
So everybody else don't have to know

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
You keep ya love locked down, you lose

I'm not lovin' you, the way I wanted to
I can't keep my cool, so I keep it true
I got somethin to lose, so I gotta move
I can't keep myself, and still keep you too
So I keep in mind, when I'm on my own
Somewhere far from home, in the danger zone
How many times did I take 'til I finally got through
you lose, you lose
I'm not lovin you, the way I wanted to
See I had to go, see I had to move
No more wastin' time, you can't wait for life
which is wastin' time, where's the finish line

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
You keep ya love locked down, you lose

I'm not lovin you, the way I wanted to
I met no one new, I got no one new
I know I said I'm through, but got love for you
But I'm not lovin' you, the way I wanted to
Gotta keep it goin', keep the lovin' goin'
Keep it on a roll, only God knows
If I be with you, baby I'm confused
You choose, you choose
I'm not lovin' you, the way I wanted to
Where I want to go, I don't need you
I've been down this road, too many times before
I'm not lovin' you, the way I wanted to

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keepin ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keepin ya love locked down, you lose
So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keepin ya love locked down, ya love locked down
If you keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keepin ya love locked down, you lose
