"THE DAY WE FALL APART"....... new song lyrics....

Here's a little snip of the chorus for another song i've written called "The Day We FALL Apart".....

"Cuz since you ran away.... I've loved you from that day, the day you broke my heart.... Can't do it anymore, cuz I loved you from the day, the day we fell apart.... and now you're new LOVE is coming undone, and I am the one you'll turn to for comfort.... and you'll love me from this day, the day we fall apart...."

The song was inspired by an upcoming song by my favorite singer Kelly Clarkson, called "The Day we Fell apart".... hers is a little more of a lovey song, a regretful breakup.... I wrote mine to a little more bitter tune....... due to some personal things..... i think it's turning out quite entertaining.... you should definitely check out the original though.... Kelly has a way of throwing such angst into these kind of songs..... while hers is more of a regret from her point for hurting someone else... the angst and regret is still there....... pretty awesome song.......

"ALL U EVER WANTED"..... my new song!!

So......... i've written a new song that i'm totally psyched about! It's called "All U Ever Wanted".... The song lyrics are fast and forward.... and I love that about it...... still putting some finishing touches in.... but in the mean time here's a little peak at the chorus...........

"Don't be A fool, you want me and i'm right in front of you... Don't play it cool, you say you love me and I know that you do... We can be together now, here and there forever now... You can have it how you want, Don't be shy your what I want... I'll be all u ever wanted girl, all u ever wanted.... tonight".....

so.... there it is........ a little peak at what I hope will be a great song someday.... when I get to work with a band at some point..... I hope it will be the uptempo pop rocker that it is in my head.... ;)

Robert Plant & Allison Krauss.... Album of the Year

So i'm not sure if anyone watched the 51st Grammy Awards this past sunday, but if you did then you know that one of the most successful albums this year both for nominations and actual wins was "Raising Sand" by Robert Plant & Allison Krauss... Now at first i'll admit, I was not too thrilled when they took Album of the Year, the most prestigious award of the night, from Coldplay.... However.... It did drive me to head on over to iTunes and give it a listen.

Folks I'm telling you... This is one of the best albums i've heard in very long while. Robert Plant, Led Zepplins legendary front man, has an amazing voice, and he takes it to a folk style. Allison Krauss, one of Country's leading ladies does the same and meets Plant in the middle, and the harmonies they put to this disc are sensational. Lyrically deep, and musically phenominal, RAISING SAND has become a favorite of mine..... Everyone should head over to iTunes today and download a copy..... you won't be disappointed. :)

Okay... so here's a little bit of my daily life.... LOL.... today (despite being sick) was really quite busy... studied this morning... worked all day.... grabbed coffee w/a friend, dinner w/the fam... watched a little NCIS (My New Addiction... LOL)... and now i'm studying yet AGAIN for my huge a$$ history test tomorrow :) sounds interesting? ya it's not.

Upside?? Creatively my mind has been going nuts these last few days.... I've been getting all kinds of ideas for my book FROM MY SIDE OF THE GLASS which is awesome! I've begun the structuring of the book right now.... you know.... the part where I decide how it'll all flow and what the chapters will be.... Hopefully i'll actually begin writing soon.... GOD WILLING... On the music front i'm really getting psyched... I'll be in the studio again this week covering a song called "Anything But Down".... it's an OLD sheryl crow number... really dramatic... awesome lyrics (some of which i've re-written...ahh) and it's getting exciting! I'll also be recording "My Life Would Suck Without You", a cover of yes, my idol Kelly Clarkson.... hopefully they'll both come out nice... that'll be a couple totally diferent sounds to hand to my friend (whose actually working w/ a producer in the industry :O.... ) yes i'm excited.... anyways.... that's what's been up... OH YA... and i've written three more songs of my own... "How U Make Me Feel (Beautiful Nightmare)", "All U Ever Wanted", and of course my favorite "Crash Into You".... I'll start previewing some lyrics soon............

Anyways.... that's all for now.... there's a day in my life.... boring LOL... hopefully more excitement will follow.... ya okay now i'm off to study some more... flippin history! suckfest...

The CIRCUS rehearsal pics revealed....

Well.... whether or not Britney Spears is as well as she seams is unsure.... however... Jive Records/AEG Live insist all is well and her upcoming tour "The Circus: Starring Britney Spears" is going ahead as scheduled with no delays.... To convince the fans... these pics were released in late January.... The pics show a very, very nicely toned Britney (if I do say so myself), dancing with backups, and having fun in the process.... Britney's manager has come out on the line officially defending the original tour crew (Led by Wade Robson, whom Britney was rumored to have had an affair with, ending her relationship to Justin Timberlake in 2001) quitting, saying "Britney was uncomfortable being front of someone who had such an effect on her life before, we are much happier with the direction the tour is headed now"... Jamie King was annouced as the tours Director, and is the creative Genius behind Madonna's "Sticky & Sweet Tour", "Confessions Tour", Ricky Martin's "Livin La Vida Loca Tour" and Christina Aguilera's "Back to Basics tour" amongst others... The tour kicks off this march! I'm pretty psyched having won front row tickets... I think the show should be pretty rad....
