A Song I Want Played At My Funeral

Day 24 of the music challenge.
It really depends on my current playlist. It changes very easily.

525,600 minutes, 525,000 moments so dear. 525,600 minutes. How do you measure, measure a year? In daylights? In sunsets? In midnights? In cups of coffee? In inches? In miles? In laughter? In strife? In 525,600 minutes, how do you measure a year in the life? How about love? Measure in love. Seasons of love. 525,600 minutes, 525,000 journeys to plan. 525,600 minutes, how can you measure the life of a woman or man? In truths that she learned, or in times that he cried? In bridges he burned, or the way that she died? It’s time now to sing out, tho the story never ends. Let’s celebrate remember a year in the life of friends. Remember the love. Measure in love. Seasons of love.
Seasons of Love by Glee

Originally by the cast of Rent (2005), but I like Glee’s version better. It’s softer. And the song has changed cos they sang it for Cory Monteith who died a few months ago. I cried through the whole Glee’s episode of “The Quarterback”. This was the song they sang the second the episode started. I cried, wondering how in the world someone could write something so beautiful.

A Song I Can Dance To

Day 9 of the 30-day music challenge
It really depends on my current playlist. It changes very easily.

First of all, please forgive me for linking these Minho videos, call it guilty pleasure if you want, I DON’T CARE COS I MYSELF AM EMBARRASSED ALREADY, but all of his solo covers in SHINee World Concert get me off my feet man! Whenever I listen to the songs, I just jump and dance. I sure did when I watched the performances live. But yes, I admit that on second look, his performances are quite embarrassing, but .___. Please just ignore the cloth-shedding, abs-flashing, ovary-offending manwhore. Enjoy.

OMG by Choi Minho. Originally performed by Usher.

Turn Up The Music by Choi Minho. Originally performed by Chris Brown.

Last but not least, I know that a lot of people don’t like Glee as much as those who do. I personally think that Glee has gotten better with the next seasons. I’m glad I’ve stayed with this series, even though initially it was only for the covers. Many times I find myself liking the Glee version of the songs more than the original. This song is one of them.

Telephone by Lea Michele and Charice Pempengco at Glee. Originally performed by Lady Gaga feat. Beyonce Knowles.

Dance everybody.
